Beyonce IS pregnant with her second child, according to E! news

The Bey-baby rumour mill has been in overdrive ever since Beyonce stepped out in that belted Givenchy dress at the Met Ball and cancelled a date of her infamous Mrs Carter tour saying she was “exhausted” earlier this week. Well, now it appears we have confirmation that Beyonce is indeed with child. Multiple sources have apparently told news giant E! today that the singer is having her second child. And the internet/world (same thing?) has freaked out!

“Was he/she/it conceived in Cuba on Beyonce’s “illegal” holiday with Jay-Z a couple of months ago?” “Will he/she/it have a $1 nursery like her big sister, Blue Ivy?” “And whatever will he/she/it be called?” are just some of the questions already being asked.

Jay-Z and Beyonce had their her first child, Blue Ivy, only 16 months ago and she’s already become one of the most watched celebrity children. Since then, Beyonce has made no secret of the fact she would like another child. ‘I would like more children. I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being a big sister,’ she said to ABC News recently, referring to her relationship with little sister Solange. Pressed on when she may have another child, she added: ‘At some point, when it’s supposed to happen.’

There’s no official confirmation of the news from Beyonce or Jay-Z – or word of the mum’s due date yet. But maybe they’re waiting for the right occasion. The singer famously told the world she was pregnant with Blue Ivy on stage at the 2012 MTV Video Movie Awards. So watch this space. And congrats to the happy couple!  

Antonio Azzuolo to Design Giuliano Fujiwara

116e5 Giuliano Fujiwara Antonio Azzuolo to Design Giuliano FujiwaraAntonio Azzuolo, whose namesake label in New York has occupied a small but sought-out spot on the American menswear landscape, now has a bigger platform to call his own. The Canadian-born designer has been named creative director for menswear, womenswear, and accessories at the Milanese label Giuliano Fujiwara. (This marks his first official womenswear collection, though he has designed for women privately under the auspices of his own line, which he will continue to design in addition to Fujiwara.)

 

The heyday of Fujiwara came in the late eighties and early nineties, when the designer capitalized on the nascent trend for minimalism and architectural shapes. (Fujiwara himself debuted the line on the Milanese runway in 1986; between then and now, it has been designed by Masataka Matsumura and, more recently, Sergio Daricello.) “Giuliano Fujiwara was one of the few brands that I noticed when I moved to Milan right after school, and the aesthetics were so subtle and beautiful,” Azzuolo said. “I still remember the store’s displays so vividly. Along with Romeo Gigli, it was a great inspiration for me.”

 

Azzuolo’s first collection for Fujiwara will be shown in Italy this June, playing on iconic menswear styles and the idea of a global nomad, incorporating influences from the U.S., Japan, and France, as well as its native Italy. “I think it is important to keep this legacy alive but not duplicate it,” Azzuolo said. “We are at a different time. I think what’s important is to have a strong vision on what is relevant today in the world and community we will live in.” Above, Azzuolo shares a preview sketch from his first collections for women and for men.

An Ode to Petri

c6bf5 blog An Ode to Petri

In gritty 1980s London, John Galliano was wrapping up his studies at Central Saint Martins, Leigh Bowery was hosting pansexual club nights, and Nick Logan launched The Face. It was a time of unencumbered experimentation—sartorial and otherwise. And it was during this era that stylist Ray Petri—the man responsible for the anti-glam Buffalo movement—emerged on the scene. Petri (formerly Petrie) laid the bricks for the eclectic British fashion scene of today. His editorials, which set the tone in magazines such as Arena, i-D, and the above-mentioned The Face, pictured rough London teens in unexpected combinations of high fashion, tough workwear, athletic clothes, underwear, vintage, and beyond. He created not only a look but an ideology that was universally recognizable. And now, the iconoclast—who died of AIDS in 1989—is getting a magazine named after him.

Founded by Zadrian Smith—a London-based writer, stylist, and producer who’s worked with such publications as Tank, Love, GQ Style and British VoguePETRI(E) Inventory 65 (the stylist would have turned 65 this year—published annually, the numbers will bump up accordingly) seeks to breathe new life into Petri’s legacy. Aiming to channel the man’s uncompromising, unfiltered vision, PETRI(E)’s editorial array extends far beyond fashion. The debut issue offers an ode to Petri by British Vogue’s Francesca Burns, a photo essay by Saiful Huq Omi that lenses the hope and strife within Bangladesh megalopolis, Dhaka (above), and an essay by Valerie Steele on her upcoming exhibition, Queer History. “I think there’s a vulnerability and honesty to each piece that I hope readers will appreciate,” Smith told Style.com. Also included is an editorial titled “Melody of Caged Birds,” (above, right) which, featuring Meadham Kirchhoff’s designs, serves as a visual antidote to the suppression of raw creative impulse. “Don’t get me wrong,” said Smith, “I know fashion is a business, but there needs to be a greater balance of business and creativity. At this rate, fashion will bleed itself of organic artistry.”

 

PETRI(E) Inventory 65 launches on May 20, and is available for preorder here

The collection is a celebration of the British attitude around festival style and we can’t think of a better brand to capture that energy and irreverent spirit.

You can check out the campaign images in the gallery above and, yes, as you may have guessed, Kate Bosworth is the star of the show.

‘Kate and I were discussing the summer trends and how she had been one of our inspirations, she was here working with us on our Christmas project – the next day Kate came in with all these incredible images and references and shared what her ultimate festival outfits looked like,’ says Kate Phelan, Topshop Creative Director. ‘It is an organic extension of Kate’s fashion sense aligned with the Topshop brand. We think that’s fresh and exciting.’ As do we!

EXCLUSIVE: Bosworth and Topshop Show Festivalgoers How It’s Done

 

Coachella might have come and gone, but across the pond, festival season is just getting started. And if musical meet-ups such as Glastonbury and Lovebox are any indication, no one knows quite how to combine a muddy field, nonstop tunes, and bohemian threads like the English. In celebration of the Brits’ summer concert savvy, Topshop is releasing a full-fledged festival-themed collection. Available starting Friday, the sixteen-piece range pulled inspiration from Coachella veteran Kate Bosworth, who took some of the wares for a spin while in Indio last month. Topshop’s muse also showcases the line’s plaid shirt, denim cutoffs, and simple sundresses while dancing around the desert in a Michael Polish-lensed film titled The Road to Coachella. Ranging from $20 to $400, the capsule hits stores alongside a larger music-themed initiative, comprising Topshop playlists, an interactive worldwide festival guide on the brand’s Web site, and a series of secret international pop-up gigs featuring established and emerging artists alike. Watch the film’s debut (above) and take a first look at Topshop’s festival duds (below) here, exclusively on Style.com.
