There is nothing hippie or Seventies about spring's colorful tie-dye prints. Inspired by the worlds of surf and skate, the acid-hued, tie-dyed fabrics seen on the runway at Proenza Schouler were cut into sexy racerback tank dresses and micro minis. Who What Wear Daily recently took matters into their own hands by recreating a more affordable version of Proenza's technicolor silk knit sweater with this do-it-yourself project from Erica Domesek of P.S. I Made This.

We're officially in love with Robert Duffy and grateful for his new twitter obsession. The president of Marc Jacobs, who started tweeting in anticipation of launching e-commerce for the brand in August, has already asked followers for set ideas for fashion shows happening next week and sent messages from Jacobs, “Marc says hi! He loves that I’m doing this. He thinks I’ll be bored in two days. Let’s see.”
A photo Stella McCartney's late mother took of the family's pet dalmatian, Lucky, serves as backdrop to McCartney's spring ad campaign, which also features Natalia Vodianova. Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, McCartney styled the images, saying they were "fashion meets reportage, mixing color, and black-and-white. A family animal with an outside atmosphere meets studio lights, camera, action!"
“I love the way it’s very graphic and soft at the same time, due to its double exposure,” said McCartney of her mother’s photo, which was taken in 1976.” About working with Mert and Marcus, McCartney told WWD: “I have known Marcus since I was a teenager and Mert from when they first met, but we never had the chance to work together. I wanted to capture their high-glamour approach over my mum’s low-maintenance way of working.”
The ads break in March titles fashion titles, Pop, V, and British, French, and Italian editions of Vogue.
