When Pudsey Met Katie

Following the success of the Louis Vuitton Pudsey bear last year (it sold for £36,000 at auction), Children In Need have enlisted the help of Katie Grand, editor of LOVE magazine, and the biggest names in fashion to give Pudsey the ultimate fashion transformation. That polka dot eye patch is history; the likes of Mulberry, Prada, Tom Ford, Missoni and many others have all put their unique and sartorial stamp on the much-loved bear in an effort to raise money for Children In Need this year. Indeed Balenciaga love Pudsey so much, they’ve given him not one, but five different makeovers! The one-off bears will be auctioned at Christie’s in November but for now, they can be seen on display in Selfridges (of course, it is the best, and most fashion-forward, department store of the lot). It’s worth going along to see them all just so that you can say you were a witness to the most stylish teddy bear’s picnic ever to have taken place. Selfridges are also selling small versions of the Paul Smith and Anya Hindmarch bears, along with one of their own design. I will definitely be getting my hands on one of these cute fashion icons.

The Best of Resort 2013

Rather than doing a post about the best looks from each show, I’ve decided to pick the best looks but also my favourite individual pieces from each Resort 2013 show. The stand out shows for me have to be: BCBG Max Azria for their bright, summery prints, Peter Pilotto for similar reasons – amazing, graphic, colourful prints, Stella McCartney due to the cool, elegant tailoring, and Valentino, who showcased beautiful, ladylike pieces. There are lots of pieces and looks here for you to look over – enjoy!
