It’s rare that I see a Swedish design that I don’t love, and these dresses by Whyred are no exception. I want them all…now! You have to do some work to find the label started by these former H&M designers on American sites, but it’s possible–there are a few pieces from the Spring/Summer collection on Opening Ceremony and Revolve Clothing, but they don’t come cheap. Good luck!

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of helping out at the Love Birds photo shoot. This LA-based accessory line is a Threadtrend favorite, so I was really thrilled to help brand founder Loren Rochelle style the shoot. We were blessed with great clothes, magical light and gorgeous models. The new Love Birds site will be up soon, so you’ll get to see Loren’s vision come to life plus all her new pieces, which are nothing short of amazing . We’ll keep you posted.
Get your hands on what’s left of Loren’s current stock on her Etsy site.
I’m pretty excited about this Anna Sui for Target news. I’ve always loved Sui, and I think her intricate patters will translate well to a lower price point–you know they’ll still work even in the form of lower quality. I’m a little concerned that her inspiration for her upcoming Go International line will be inspired by Gossip Girl, but maybe I’m just being anti. I guess it’s less disconcerting than Alexander Wang doing khaki for Gap, right?
The line premieres September 13.

Looks like Alexander Wang has been tapped by the GAP for their latest collaboration. Refinery 29 says it’s going to be khaki based, which kind of scares me and much as it scares them, but I’m going to give him a well-deserved benefit of the doubt.
The fledgling mall staple is no stranger to designer partnerships–they’ve done those white shirt collaborations with Phillip Lim, Band of Outsiders, Threeasfour and others, if you remember. I hope this one actually produces something that I want to pay money for.
According to Gap Creative Director, Patrick Robinson, Wang created an “incredible motorcycle jacket.” But is that a khaki motorcycle jacket? I’m confused but not without hope.

Fans of Christian Siriano, of Project Runway fame, might be interested to see the wedding dresses he’s sketched up for Uma Thurman, Rachel Bilson, Amy Adams, and Zooey Deschanel (pictured above). I’m not usually into wedding gowns, per se, but Siriano’s designs are a lot more interesting that the usual fare.
About his Zooey creation, he says:
“I love the idea of using colors and tones to highlight something for Zooey. Her hair has such a luscious dark tone. I wanted the dress to highlight that with a cream color instead of classic white or even bone.”
I’m really into this trend of letting designers whip up their ideal dresses for celebrities, kind of like what designers did for Michelle Obama’s inaugural gown. Fun!
