Louis Vuitton’s new campaign stars Yasiin Bey, aka Mos Def, reciting some of Muhammad Ali’s speeches, as a tribute to ‘The Greatest’. Created by Ogilvy Paris and directed by Stuart McIntyre of Steam Films, the vides see Bey moving inside a dark, sinister, boxing ring recounting two poetic speeches made by the boxing legend while graphics from Niels Show Meulman elaborate on the words. The campaign comprises a dedicated website containing recordings of Ali’s notorious speeches, and photos. Two more films are set to follow in Autumn, “Float” and “Life”.

Don't really have to say much about this. Designed by LA-based artist Andrew Lewicki, who has previously designed Oreo Cookie shaped manhole covers. If you can't afford to have a Louis on your arm, I guess second best is in your stomach?
Marc Jacobs, American fashion designer and creative director of Louis Vuitton, has provided a preliminary glimpse at his Spring/Summer 2013 collection as part of Milan Fashion Week. The collection harmonises a nostalgic memory of Bugsy Malone, inspiration drawn from the F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender is the Night, and an echo of the French Riviera. Expect to see a line boasting carefully tailored suits, piercing pinstripe,
trilbies (which I’m usually completely hostile towards), belted trench coats and a sprinkling of all-over colourful, summer appropriate prints to accompany your lychee mojito on the beach. Plus, it's always pleasant to see Cole Mohr in a tux.
Just some of the collection:

I've seen this design done by loads of nail artists recently, so I thought I'd give it a feeble attempt. This is my first try, but I will be doing it again as its so versatile you can do it with pretty much any two nail varnishes.

H&M announced this morning that Italian style legend Anna Dello Russo, creative consultant at Vogue Japan, would be joining their team as their new accessories designer. She's known for her outlandish style, and has been seen donning a certain "egg" fascinator at last year's Met Ball. Anna, or ADR as she's also known, said about the range: "As a stylist I know accessorization is essential: it is the personal touch to any outfit. With these pieces everybody can have fun, turning an ordinary day into a fantastic fashion day."
