Target and Facebook have just launched a digital savings program that’s about to get all up in your timeline.
Here’s another sign that social media is taking over our lives: Yves Saint Laurent and Facebook have collaborated on an eyeshadow palette.
Silicon Valley’s very own royal wedding! And, naturally, the announcement was made via Zuckerberg’s Facebook timeline.
Victoria Beckham celebrated her 38th birthday yesterday with a fruit platter — you didn’t think she’d eat cake, did you? — and a brand new Facebook account (not to be confused with this weird DVb Victoria Beckham account).
Congratulations are in order for an old British brand that started churning out cloaks in the 1850s and now has more Facebook likes than any other brand in the fashion business.
We love Facebook and Twitter (and we love our Facebook and Twitter followers!) but we never thought we’d want to wear either social networking tool manifested as a shoe. Primarily because, you know, neither one of them had been. At least they hadn’t until this week, when web designer Gerry McKay imagined what such shoe collaborations would look like.
We’d totally be on a first-class flight to Paris right now for the Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs spring summer 2011 show on the 6th. Except we weren’t invited and couldn’t afford to go if we were. But we do have the next best thing.
Much has been made of how “bitchy” or “catty” or “mean” Tim Gunn‘s public pronouncements have become of late, and the videos he’s recorded and posted to his Facebook page to recap each new episode of Project Runway haven’t really helped his image. The tone of the most recent of these vlogs, a 12-minute diatribe about the Jackie O. episode, is especially brusque.
Followers of fast fashion, we have been duped. WWD reported this morning that Swedish megabrand H&M is partnering with Lanvin‘s Alber Elbaz for its next designer collaboration. Not 48 hours ago were we participating in a highly produced guessing game after seeing videos of fabulous people with obscured faces and heavy accents talking about fashion. Turns out, those clips were just a carefully planned bout of misdirection.
Here’s the deal: we hate being teased — after all, we’re in the business of blogging so we can uncover information and share with our beautiful readers! So we’re a little miffed today that H&M is toying with our hearts. They won’t tell us who their new designer collaborators are, but they’re inviting us and the rest of the world to guess.
Remember when Prada’s website was simply a picture of their ad campaign? You couldn’t click, you couldn’t browse lookbooks, you could only stare at an ad. Those days are over. Roberto Cavalli recently launched his very own blog.
