On Friday, London-based menswear designer and 2020 LVMH Prize finalist Priya Ahluwalia announced her womenswear debut as part of a collaboration with Ganni. The result is a collection that’s both sustainable — it was designed with upcycled deadstock fabric that went unused in Ganni’s fall ‘20 collection — and the life of the party — Ahluwalia was inspired by London’s Garage scene in the ‘90s. The collection is made up of 19 pieces, many of which were created in Ganni’s signature silhouettes, but with Ahluwalia’s unique touches, making them unlike any pieces we’ve come to expect from the Copenhagen fashion darling. Think: square necklines on midi dresses and buttery soft leather mini dresses, but with tighter fits and patchwork patterns. “To be trusted to design the collection using Ganni’s liability materials was something that was very important to the design process,” Ahluwalia said in a press release. “The project has been great in showing how leftover materials can be totally transformed and are worth cherishing.” The Nigerian-Indian creative wasn’t kidding about a transformation. Where we often associate Ganni with cottagecore vibes — the poofy sleeves, pastel colors, and soft plaids — this collection shows an edgier side to the brand. “I looked at photography from the U.K. Garage scene, as well as photos from my own personal history and culture and wanted to create clothing that women will feel sexy and strong in whilst on the dancefloor, whether at a club or at home,” Ahluwalia said. Ahluwalia’s 19-piece womenswear debut, which ranges in price from $100 to $1350, will be available for purchase on Friday, April 23.

Just under a year after debuting Target’s Designer Dress Collection, a 70-piece collaborative line of sundresses by Cushnie, Lisa Marie Fernandez, and LoveShackFancy, the retailer announced the sophomore lineup — and it doesn’t disappoint. Target tapped fashion’s buzziest brands Christopher John Rogers, RIXO, and ALEXIS. For the collection, each of the designers was tasked with creating a collection of summer dresses in their signature styles — think: art-inspired silhouettes from CJR, bold prints by RIXO, and vacation-ready pieces by ALEXIS — that would fit amongst Target’s lineup of affordable and wearable dresses. Each succeeded with flying colors (literally, it’s like a color bomb went off in aisle seven), taking big sleeves, ruffles, and asymmetric details off the runway and into your neighborhood Target, where every piece is available in sizes XXS to 4X — making it the brand’s most size-inclusive designer collaboration to date — and costs less than $60. Sound too good to be true? Apparently, the designers think so, too. ALEXIS’ Alexis Barbara Isaias called the opportunity to create a line of dresses for Target’s massive audience “a dream come true,” as did Rogers, who said that his goal for the collection was to help wearers “across the country feel their most authentic” and “self-expressive.” The CFDA-winning designer also expressed the thrill over being included in the long list of designers who’ve partnered with Target in the past, including Alexander McQueen, Proenza Schouler, Jean Paul Gaultier, Prabal Gurung, Rodarte, and more: “I’m excited to be a part of that legacy.” “For more than 20 years, Target has partnered with some of the biggest names in the industry, and had the opportunity to introduce our guests to emerging designers who are shaping fashion and culture today,” said Jill Sando, Target’s EVP and CMO. “With this collection, we’re celebrating three incredibly talented and diverse designers, all while creating our most size-inclusive collection of original, quality dresses.” Target’s second Designer Dress Collection will be sold at Target.com and in select Target stores starting later this spring. Until then, we’ll be busy planning out which dresses we’re going to buy (hint: it’s all of them). Like what you see?

A revamped version of the Symfonisk table lamp is also said to be in the works.
Elle King showed up to the Academy of Country Music Awards this weekend looking like the rock star she is, wearing '70s-inspired curtain bangs, loose waves, and peachy eye makeup, but even all of that couldn't steal our attention from her uniquely placed neck tattoo. The singer - who revealed to Vogue back in 2018 that she has over 55 tattoos - has a snake design on her neck, and even though we've seen tons of neck tattoos to date, what makes King's stand out is the fact that we rarely see them in the front of the neck area.
If you're one of the many people whose houseplant collection has seriously grown this year, we have good news: Justina Blakeney , designer, author, and founder of The Jungalow, has just released three amazingly cute planters in the shape of animals.

SOUTH KOREA – NOVEMBER 22: (EDITORIAL USE ONLY; NO BOOK COVERS.) In this image released on November 22, Jungkook, Suga, V, Jin, RM, Jimin, and J-Hope of BTS perform onstage for the 2020 American Music Awards on November 22, 2020 in South Korea. (Photo by Big Hit Entertainment/AMA2020/Getty Images via Getty Images) On Monday — in what is perhaps the most chaotic good energy we’ve felt in a long time — McDonald’s announced that the company is partnering with BTS, the world-renowned Korean band, for its next celebrity meal. And it feels like two kingdoms are uniting in beautiful, harmonious solidarity. McDonald’s announced the partnership on Twitter, via just six words: “Coming this May: The BTS Meal.” The already-famous meal includes 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, and a soda option (Sprite, if you’re J-Hope), as well as the introduction of two dipping sauces — sweet chili and cajun flavors — both inspired by McDonald’s South Korea recipes, per the burger chain and as reported by CNN. (Unclear as to why they didn’t include a mochi-inspired dessert, but hey, nobody’s perfect.) The meal will be available in at least 50 markets worldwide starting on May 26. Other celebrities to partner with McDonald’s on its menu collaborations recently include singer J Balvin and rapper Travis Scott. BTS, however, is by far the most hotly anticipated collab to date: In 2019, BTS became the third group in 50 years to have three number-one albums on the Billboard 200 charts in less than one year, according to CNN. Let’s just say that BTS might be the only band more famous and accomplished than the Chicken Nugget. And their fans could not be more excited about the collaboration. “Get in loser we’re going to mcdonalds to get the bts meal,” one fan wrote on Twitter, accompanied by a picture of BTS band members inside a car. “So if you work for mcdonalds during the bts meal collab that means you indirectly work for bts,” another tweeted.

The collection will be supported by a pop-up at Bird’s Nest Workshop in Los Angeles.
It's an unexpected twist to the classic gallery wall look, too, as you can see in this blush pink living room designed by Janie Molster. Once you've mapped out the gallery wall, all you need are some picture hangers.
For her first solo project, the designer slips modern touches into a traditional home—but the big-screen TV is here to stay.
The brands are collaborating on two special capsules — one of which drops next week.
