Yes, we know we’ve been gone a long time. And you know what brought us back? Becks. In his skivvies. AND the promise of getting your man into Beckham’s underwear. (Not literally, but you know.)
Anyway, David Beckham just signed a deal to bring his magic touch to a line of bodywear for H&M. What is bodywear, you ask? Well, we are not exactly sure. We’re guessing briefs, boxer briefs, tanks and the like. He told WWD:
“Over the past year, I’ve been developing my Bodywear range with my team and I’m extremely positive about what we have designed and produced,” Beckham said in a statement. “The final piece in the jigsaw was a retail partner who has the vision and capability to distribute these products globally. In H&M we have found the perfect partner to collaborate with going forward.”
At any rate, the collection will be available in 1,800 lucky H&M stores early February 2012. We’ll definitely pick up a pair, if only to say we got into David Beckham’s underwear.

This painterly dress from Patterson J. Kincaid, aptly called the ‘Picasso Floral Monterey Wrap Dress’ requires a mimosa, bare feet and a sunset overlooking a Bali beach. And you don’t even have to shave your legs.

We love these stark photos of Guinevere van Seenus, shot by Mert & Marcus for Interview Magazine. The contrast of the red hair against the white structural garments from Dries van Noten, Balenciaga and Givenchy makes for a stunning editorial.

Savage Beauty, the Alexander McQueen exhibition, kicks off May 2nd at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City with a fantastical gala hosted by none other than Anna Wintour. Vogue Mexico reports that:
This will be an opportunity to remember the talent, emotion and the tragic romance that marked the work of those who many consider one of the great artists of the last five decades. The exhibition, curated by Andrew Bolton and produced by Sam Gainsbury and Joseph Bennett, the duo responsible for the production of the vast majority of parades McQueen, includes approximately 170 pieces, including clothing and accessories from the archives of the brand in London and the house Givenchy in Paris.
The museum will be divided according to the ideas and concepts that inspired McQueen fashion. Romantic Gothic , for example, show his passion for history, the Victorian Gothic fascination with opposites like life and death or light and darkness. Romantic Nationalism reflect his interest in British and Scottish history; Romantic Exoticism that had influenced the designer cultures and faraway places as India and Japan, and Romantic Naturalism interest in wild nature, so evident in his latest collections of shoes “lobster” or printed fabrics with natural motifs and water.
The exhibition will open to the public on May 4, 2011, and run through July 31.

We’re loving this Diane von Furstenberg Christianna silk crepe de chine jacket (and not just because it has the same name as our editor-in-chief), but because it’s one of those all-in-one garments — a short caftan, a kimono, a cardigan, a topper, a blouse, a you-name-it! The bold blue and white pattern with black and white Greek key trim practically requires you book a flight to Cyprus the minute you purchase it. And if you discover that it’s uber-versatile and wear it on a near-daily basis, don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Available at Net-a-Porter, $425

To debut their new animal-inspired ‘Zebra’ watch, Swatch commissioned House of Diehl of the famous international Style Wars (a Project-Runway-on-crack competition) and designers of costumes for the likes of Lady Gaga and Madonna to create this couture creation MADE ENTIRELY OF WATCHES. (And, OK, and sheer mesh lining underneath, but still.)
Tell us, would you wear a dress made entirely of watches, or maybe one made of other accessories like handbags or jewelry?

“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour. The “Bill” in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller—who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair. In turn, Bill Cunningham New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.
