ABC announced on May 10th that they’ve picked up the pilot for the Marvel television series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Wasting no time to promote the show, a teaser trailer was also released. While it’s only 32 seconds, we catch a glimpse of actress Ming-na Wen (as character Melinda May) punching a guy in the face at the :18 mark.
Other cast members include: Clark Gregg (who reprises his role from the Marvel films as Phil Coulson), Elizabeth Henstridge (“Agent Jemma Simmons”), Iain De Caestecker (“Agent Leo Fitz”), Brett Dalton (“AgentGrant Ward”), Chloe Bennet (“Skye”) and J. August Richards.
Target seems to always bring in our favorite Asian designers for a collaboration: Richard Chai, Thakoon, Jason Wu, and recently, Prabal Gurung – and now – wait for it – PHILLIP LIM. Target officially made the announcement earlier this morning, naming Lim as the latest designer to join the ranks of other designers to produce a collection with the retail giant. The 100 piece collection (for women AND men) will make its debut on September 15, with pieces ranging from $29.99 to $299.99. The looks will feature “a classic fall palette of neutral tones and prints.”
Alright, this absolutely wants to make me skip the summer season and go right into fall. September 15 is too far away!
Out of all the fashion weeks around the world – all eyes definitely fall on Paris Fashion Week, where hot trends are picked off right off the runway. While you may not picture yourself wearing any one of these looks out on the street anytime soon, it’s always good to take note of the concepts and themes of every collection for inspiration while putting together your fall wardrobe. Some of our favorite trends that came out of Paris Fashion Week included: Stella McCartney’s “tractor soles”, menswear slacks, the return of the 1990s (think back to Courtney Love, baby doll dresses, plaid, and wet hair), and purple as a statement color.
