Britney Spears Sparkles in Campaign for Fantasy Twist

US singing sensation Britney Spears has always had incredibly success with her various commercial ventures, most notably her line of perfumes, released in conjunction with Elizabeth Arden. Over one billion Britney Spears perfumes have been sold around the world, and her popularity in the fragrance market shows no signs of slowing down with the launch of a promotional campaign for her latest perfume, Fantasy Twist.

In the 50-second television commercial that was launched online over the weekend, Britney is seen in four equally glamorous guises, gliding along these four eras to the soundtrack of Beautiful by Goldfrapp. The clip opens with a quote from author Anais Nin: “We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.”

Having launched her first perfume, Curious back in 2004, Fantasty Twist is the 11th product to be added to Britney’s perfume collection, and combines two of her most popular scents, Fantasy and Midnight Fantasy, in one innovative split-sphere bottle. Britney herself commented that the split nature of Fantasy Twist gives her fans “the power to choose the scent they desire at any given moment.”

In the pink half of the bottle is the Fantasy perfume, which is designed to be the lighter, daytime scent. Described as a provocative and sensual perfume, Fantasy opens with fruity top notes of kiwi, litchi and golden quince, which then blends with a sweet heart of white chocolate, cupcake accord, jasmine and orchid, finished off with a smooth base of musks, orris root and woody notes.

Meanwhile, in the purple half of the bottle is the Midnight Fantasy perfume. This exotic and mysterious scent opens with fruity top notes of black cherry, plum and framboise, which then flows into a floral heart of iris, orchid and freesia, and finally the scent is rounded off with a rich base of amber, vanilla and musks.

The Britney Spears Fantasy Twist eau de parfum sprays are now available to order from online perfume retailer Fragrance Direct. The Fantasy Twist product comes in two different sizes; a 2x15ml bottle (£21.99) and a 2x25ml bottle (£26.99). There is also a selection of Britney’s other popular perfumes, including Curious and Believe.

Skyfall, the 23rd film in the highly successful James Bond franchise and Daniel Craig’s third outing as the British Secret Agent, is set to be released in cinemas on 26th October.

The James Bond 007 Fragrance has been launched to mark the 50th Anniversary of James Bond, and has already been described in GQ Magazine as “the most dangerously sophisticated fragrance in the world.”

The bottle of the 007 Fragrance is very much inspired by James Bond and the many array of gadgets and automobiles he has become accustomed to throughout the years. The structure of the bottle is crafted with dark glass and coarse mesh, resembling 007’s sleek sports cars, while the silve ring shaped stopper is reminiscent of the British Spy devices that are commonplace in James Bond films.

As for the perfume itself, the 007 Fragrance is described as rich, masculine and sophisticated, opening with fresh top notes of apples, bergamot and geranium, which then flows into a floral heart of rose, lavender and cardamom, and the sleek, woody base rounded off the perfume with notes of vetiver, sandalwood, patchouli and oakmoss.

The James Bond 007 Fragrance is now available to order from online perfume retailer Fragrance Direct. The 007 Fragrance comes in two different sizes; 30ml (£15.99) and 75ml (£25.99). The 75ml bottle of the 007 Fragrance is also available with a 007 branded cocktail mixer as an exclusive free gift, for the ultimate James Bond experience.

Rebelle by Rihanna is Fastest-Selling Celebrity Perfume in the UK

Rihanna is one of the hottest pop stars on the planet right now, and it seems that as she expanded her horizons into other projects, her star power is just as powerful off the stage as it is on it.

The Barbadian singer has rocketed to the top of the UK bestselling fragrance list, having sold two million bottles of her second perfume, Rebelle, since it was launched in February. According to Mail Online, it is expected that the scent will break the four-million barrier by the end of the year.

The celebrity perfume market is notoriously competitive, particularly in the UK, and Rihanna’s rise to the top of the bestseller list has seen her fight off stiff competition from celebrity fragrance heavyweights such as Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Victoria Beckham.

The follow-up to Rihanna’s first perfume Reb’l Fleur, Rebelle captures the warmth of the Caribbean sun, not only reflecting her laid-back Barbadian roots, but also the hectic lifestyle of the superstar that she has become. The conical design of the bottle, with its evocative red swirl pattern, is inspired by the shape of a stiletto heel.

Speaking at the launch of her second perfume earlier this year, Rihanna said:“[Rebelle] is about taking control but still being a lady. There’s a feminine, romantic element to the fragrance – but there’s also a defiant quality in it. I love its duality.”

As for the perfume itself, Rebelle is described as a strong, feminine scent that will bring out the rebel in your. The fragrance opens with fruity top notes of plum, strawberry and ginger, which then flows into a rich heart of vanilla orchid and cocoa absolute, all of which is smoothly rounded off with a deep base of musks, coffee, patchouli and amber.

Rihanna Rebelle eau de parfum spray is currently available to order from online perfume retailer Fragrance Direct, with a 100ml bottle selling for £19.99, which represents a saving of over a third off the recommended retail price.

Hotter Shoes Reveals Uncomfortable Shoes Cost UK Women £2.5 Billion Per Year

Women across the UK are frittering away £2.5 billion* each year on uncomfortable shoes they rarely wear a new study** has revealed.

The average woman in the UK spends £136.52 on five new pairs of shoes every year, at a cost of £27.40 each. Instead of investing wisely in shoes they can wear more than once, three out of the five pairs of women’s shoes end up at the bottom of the wardrobe having only been worn once or twice, because they hurt the wearer’s feet.

The research, commissioned by shoe specialist Hotter Comfort Concept, also revealed that 40% of the 1000 women questioned admitted to choosing their shoes purely for how they looked and not how they felt on their feet.

Lisa McCarten from Hotter, said: “Shoes really can change your life: they have an impact on the health of your feet, can influence how you feel and play a significant part in how much you enjoy your day. Not only do uncomfortable shoes make for a bad day today, squeezing your toes into ill-fitting footwear can also damage your feet causing pain and discomfort in later life.”

Worryingly almost a third of women (28%) who have tried on shoes and know that they will be uncomfortable, still purchase them as they can’t resist how they look.

Lisa continued: “We all want to look our best, keep up with our busy lives and have fun; stylish comfy shoes are an essential part of the modern woman’s wardrobe to help her tackle all three.”

62% of women revealed that they spend at least one day a week wearing uncomfortable shoes with 48% hoping to wear them in until their feet get used to them.

More than half of women (53%) will keep uncomfortable shoes for up to a year before giving up on them and throwing them away despite only wearing them once.

They also revealed that they own at least four pairs of shoes just to be worn when sitting down or ‘Dinner Shoes’ that look amazing but are very painful to walk in.

Regionally, women in Chelmsford buy the most shoes, purchasing on average seven new pairs a year whereas women in Leicester buy the least purchasing just four pairs every year.

Women in Worcester buy the most uncomfortable shoes admitting that 70% of their shoe collection has only been worn once, whereas women in Cambridge are the most comfort savvy revealing that just 20% of their collection has been worn only once.

To assist with the problem of uncomfortable shoes, Hotter’s website offers a handy shoe fitting guide, allowing customers to ensure their shoes will fit just right.

BridesVillage.com Unveils Free Wedding Budget Calculator

BridesVillage, an independent e-commerce retailer of wedding supplies, announced today that it has released a free budget calculatorto help couples manage their wedding costs. The calculator features an extensive list of common wedding expenses arranged categorically; couples can create cost estimates as well as monitor their spending. The budget spreadsheet, along with a special limited-time coupon and promotional giveaway, is now available at BridesVillage.com.

“The wedding budget calculator is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time,” said Cathy Ward, founder of BridesVillage. “We spent a lot of time talking to brides and breaking out the expenses they have to deal with these days. This project is really for them.”

Ward noted the calculator was built using Microsoft Excel and is downloadable in an .xls format, one of the most compatible file extensions used by modern spreadsheet programs. It was designed, she said, to be easy for anyone to open and use.

The download is presented as a simple wedding budget worksheet that contains over 120 common wedding expenses listed as line items. Expenses are organized into categories like attire, stationery, flowers, legal fees, and many more. The spreadsheet includes columns for entering estimated and actual costs and calculates running totals for each.

“There are a variety of wedding budget planning tools out there,” Ward added, “but all of them seemed to be missing something. We’d find one with a section on photography costs but nothing about transportation, but that’s important in this economy. We wanted our brides to be able to manage all of their budget, not just some of it.”

To celebrate the release of the calculator, Ward said, she is also posting what she described as an extremely high value coupon that can be applied to purchases from BridesVillage. The coupon can be accessed on the website and will expire on July 31st, 2012.

BridesVillage is also giving away an authentic Queen Elizabeth Sixpence to the first 50 readers who download the spreadsheet or read the accompanying article of money-saving tips. The sixpences come in a range of years and values, Ward said, and all are out of circulation. The sixpences can be ordered for free — customers pay only for shipping

“It’s more of a thank you than a prize,” Ward said of the coins. “There’s that old wedding rhyme about it being good luck to have a sixpence on your wedding day, and we thought it was a nice symbolic way to say we appreciate the economic challenges couples face.”

Ward said that even after the promotions end she expects the budget calculator to be a popular ongoing feature of her site. She believes it could make a significant impact on how couples plan their celebrations and, she hopes, gets them to plan to smarter.

“It might be a bit self-defeating as a retailer, but I’ve always encouraged customers to stick to what they need,” she added. “I don’t want brides to get this spreadsheet and think they have to fill in every line or buy every item listed. I want them to use it to see the big picture and help them feel like they’re in control of planning a fabulous wedding that’s within their price range.”

The Size Guide provides detailed information about how to measure jeans. The guide shows key measurement points that are used to create different denim fits and where each size swill fit on different parts of the body so the customer can make an informed decision and allowing them to order the right size first time round.

The ‘Denim Room’ also offers a sneak preview of the Premium Denim range coming soon to Topman. The range will cater to all fit types and will feature premium fabrics coupled with the finest metalwork.

Gracia Amico, Head of Ecommerce Topman.com said: “It’s the ultimate destination to find out all there is to know about Topman jeans. We’re providing our customers with the tools to make the right decision for them, from our washes right down to the differing thigh measurements between styles.”

Topman showcase SS13 Design collection at London Fashion Week

Topman debuted its SS13 Design collection at London Fashion Week as part of the new ‘London Collections: MEN’ showcase (June 15-17). The fashion show took place at 12pm BST/13:00 CEST/4am PST/ 7am EDT.

Topman Design is the brand’s in-house designed premium collection. It is now in its 7th year and can be found exclusively in global flagship Topman stores as well as online at Topman.com. The collection has become a distinguished wholesale brand in itself and appears throughout Europe, the Far East and New Zealand.

While Men’s Day is now an established feature of the London Fashion Week schedule, the new ‘London Collections: MEN’ showcase spanned across three days, exhibiting a growing interest in men’s fashion and local menswear designers.

Topman Design Director, Gordon Richardson, said: “No longer shoe horned into one condensed hectic day, the newly established London Collections: Men, over three glorious days, now has the space to breathe, flourish and generate the buzz that will put its talented rising men’s fashion stars firmly on the international fashion map.”

The last Topman Design collection featured a range of sharp edge suits, embellished silk shirts, shorts, jackets and bold prints. Speaking to its wide appeal, an eclectic range of male celebrities, including professional athletes, actors and musicians, were seen wearing pieces from the collection.

Topman also plays a pivotal role in shaping and supporting emerging talent within men’s fashion. MAN, the partnership between Topman and FashionEast credited as spearheading the whole Men’s Day movement enters into its 7th year too. Adding exciting new names, Shaun Sampson and Matthew Miller, to its critically acclaimed hall of fame last season, the select panel of industry insiders will continue to ensure this key initiative strives to pioneer those newest of design talent and giving them a much needed platform in which to present.

NEWGEN MEN builds on Topman’s partnership with FashionEast. It has since become instrumental in raising the profile of emerging British designers, using the dedicated Men’s Day at London Fashion Week as a showcasing platform. Picking up where MAN develops, the sponsorship initiative offers its recipients tailored business and mentoring support with a view to increasing the success of their business commercially and building relationships with key press and buyers.

Tim Blanks, Contributing Editor of Style.com and a member of the British Fashion Council’s Menswear committee, commented: “NEWGEN MEN mix this season testifies to the unique personality that’s evolved in British Menswear. Aside from the real breadth and depth, I doubt that any other fashion capital could confidently field a men’s team with this much quirk.”

Topman also encouraged people to get involved via Twitter with its SS13 Tweetwalk. Moments before the model hits the catwalk, @TopmanUK tweeted a photo of the outfit exclusively for its Twitter followers.

Every London Fashion Week Twitter users can join the conversation by using the #TOPMAN hashtag, and the best tweets will be RTd to an audience of over 35,000. These RTs will also feature alongside a live stream on the homepage of Topman’s UK and global sites, which reach over 100,000 people a day. The aim is to get #TOPMAN trending worldwide on Twitter and Google+.

Wallis Launches New Collection By Print Designer Lollie Dunbar

Wallis, a premium high street women’s clothing brand, has launched a new collection by aspiring print designer Lollie Dunbar. The collection, which features a bespoke print created by the up-and-coming textile designer, first appeared online and in selected stores nationwide on 21 May 2012.

The seven-piece capsule collection features a range of garments for spring and summer. It includes three scarves, two dresses, wide-legged Palazzo trousers and a cropped kimono.

Growing up in a creative household, with an animator father and a dressmaker mother, Lollie Dunbar knew from a young age that she wanted to become a fashion designer. However, it wasn’t until college that she first discovered her love of prints and patterns. From there, she went on to study textile design at the Winchester School of Art. In addition to this latest endeavour with Wallis, she has also collaborated with the World Land Trust and Liberty London after winning a scarf print design competition.

Lollie discussed her inspiration for the collection: “I wanted to create something that was suitable for the Wallis customer, for spring/summer 2012, but also something that would be a reflection of me as a designer.

“My main inspiration for the designs were prints seen on contemporary homeware designs and I felt these would translate beautifully into a scarf collection and the other designs flowed from there.”

In addition to homeware designs, Lollie was also inspired by Egyptian Jewellery, Greek pottery and tribal tattoos. She visited the Pitt Rivers Museum in her hometown of Oxford and used its collection of world archaeology as her muse.

Lollie’s aesthetic also draws from the 1960s, as she admires the styles of Twiggy Lawson and Edie Sedgwick. She enjoys the strong yet feminine look of 60s-era shift dresses, jewellery and makeup.

In regard to the design process for her Wallis collection, Lollie said: “When I first met with the design team at Wallis to discuss the collaboration I was so excited that they very much wanted me to take my own direction.

“I worked from home and so had complete independence on the designs. Throughout the process I would meet with the team to keep them up to date on what I was working on and get their feedback on how the collection was progressing.”

Lollie is currently working on a new collection to add to her growing portfolio and looks forward to doing more projects like the one she’s done for Wallis.

Wallis Announces Louise Redknapp As The Face Of Its Petite Clothing Collection

Wallis has announced that Louise Redknapp, singer, TV presenter and wife of footballer Jamie Redknapp, will be the face of its petite clothing collection. The collection features a range of garments specifically designed for women with a smaller frame.

As a confident, petite woman, Redknapp understands the importance of dressing for one’s shape and is therefore an ideal ambassador for Wallis’ petite clothing collection. As one of the UK’s most relatable and friendly media personalities, Redknapp has organically become a style icon for British women. By modelling Wallis’ collection on her petite frame, Redknapp proves that being petite doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style.

As spokesperson, Redknapp modelled several garments from the collection, including lemon jeans, petite dresses and rose printed trousers.

On the shoot set Louise Redknapp said: “When you are petite proportions are so important, whether it’s your jeans or a tailored jacket it’s essential that the fit is good as it makes all the difference.”

Despite usually being considered off-limits for petite women, the maxi dress is also featured in the collection, and it’s altered to flatter the petite frame. These floor-length dresses reflect the recent monochrome trend that’s set to take off in Spring and Summer 2012. Eveningwear options in the collection include a stylish black jumpsuit and a black body con dress with lace detailing. The collection also features a range of petite tops, including striped petite knitwear pieces.

The Wallis Design team have created unique pieces for the collection, as well as adapting key styles from Wallis’ core collection into petite silhouettes. The collection is designed for women of 5 foot 3″ and under, and is available in sizes 8-18. The proportions of each garment are altered to flatter the petite figure, while also enhancing seasonal trends. Specifically, leg lengths in the petite collection are shorted to 29 inches and sleeve lengths are reduced by 1 inch.

The collection, as well as accessories to pair with it, is available in all Wallis stores and online at wallis.co.uk.

Wallis, a premium British clothing brand, has announced the launch of its Icon Dresses collection, featuring designs inspired by legendary film stars from decades past.

One of the most iconic women’s dresses from the 1950s was Marilyn Monroe’s famous white halter dress. The Icon Dresses collection honours this classic ensemble with a near replica. The collection’s white halter dress includes a full pleated skirt and a ruched waist panel for an extra flattering effect.

The beloved ‘little black dress’ has not been left out of Wallis’ latest collection, which features an Audrey Hepburn inspired ‘LBD’ with a simple, chic silhouette. A cut-out detail on the back of the dress gives it a modern touch.

The collection’s silk, coffee-coloured cocktail dress is inspired by Elizabeth Taylor and features lace detailing for an additional touch of femininity.
