Luxe brand Hermès is on the hunt for young, under-the-radar bloggers and photographers—who knew? After Dior’s unveiling of actress du jour Mila Kunis as their Fall 2012 fashion muse, Hermès looks to 18 year-old blogger and photographer Olivia Bee for its latest Fall 2012 editorial fashion cover shoot for the brand’s in-house magazine, Le Monde d’Hermès. The Portland, Oregon-based photographer created a dreamy world for the French brand: Hermès scarves-turned-large-bows on her head for a very unicorn-inspired, fairytale-feeling shoot. The Arcadian-esque photoshoot is a celebration of silk scarves and pink hair the brand said via press release—a fantasy-inspired rendition by way of countryside frolicking and flouncing.
The latest edition of Le Monde d’Hermès will be available from September 2012 in all the Hermès boutiques.

Fashion has been at the forefront during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics
. Go figure! From Hudson Bay Company

(see my article here)
, absolutely everyone seems to have had a hand in helping outfit the athletes and their entourages for the Winter games.
Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared also designed costumes for the closing ceremony performers. And even the late Alexander McQueen was commissioned by Holt Renfrew to design 250 signature red-and-white scarves for the Olympics with maple leaves superimposed on his trademark human skull pattern. While, the Gucci Group will continue the McQueen line posthumously (much of McQueen’s Fall-Winter 2010 collection was completed before his death) the scarf is officially the most recent design released to the fashion public.
Red mittens, along with the Alexander McQueen scarves, are at a premium now (completely sold out). In fact, fans are searching for another way to get their hands on them. On eBay, the scarves are going for about $500 USD and on Kijiji, an online post has the scarf selling at a hefty $1,500 CAD.

Fashion dandies and dandettes hit the streets during LG Fashion Week S/S 2010 to show us how to work catwalk trends in real time. And the looks? Ankle boots, layers and leggings, soft furs, hand-me-down leather clutches, totes and an array of statement baubles wrapped in closet staple outerwear: trenches, bombers, and double breasted jackets. From David Dixon to Nada, Canadian labels were the statement makers on and off the runway.
