Hey, Guys: Coach’s New Collaboration Is Just for You (Sort Of)

Coach has long claimed legions of lady fans who love everything from its signature “C”-print bags to its colorful leather loafers. But, guys, hold on before you yawn and turn away. The company has unveiled a new collaboration that was conceived with you in mind.

In its new partnership with Philip Crangi – the New York City jewelry designer behind Giles & Brother and a poster boy of cool – Coach has rolled out a limited-edition collection of “rugged jewelry and accessories.” The belts, braided toggle bracelets, and slim key fobs all bear a combination of Coach’s smooth, iconic leather and Crangi’s trademark hardware. The result? A just-right marriage of grit and polish. There’s only one caveat: We can’t guarantee that, if left unattended, your girlfriends, wives, and sisters won’t snatch these pieces up to add a touch of tomboy chic to their own ensembles.

Cheerio, New York: Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Moves to London

It’s official: The 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will be held across the pond. At an early-morning press conference inside the brand’s London flagship store, CMO Ed Razek (alongside veteran Angels Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel) revealed his plans for the runway’s relocation.

According to Razek, the brand wanted to move the show from New York to London back in 1998 (when it first landed overseas), but “it just kind of all came together this year.”

My guess is that the show – slated for December 2 – will be packed with British celebs. In fact, it’s rumored that Cara Delevingne has already saved the date. (And I, for one, can’t wait.)

Check out ELLE for more on the VS press conference.

One Year Later, We’re Still Boston Strong

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since our city was turned inside out by the senseless act of terror at the Boston Marathon. Today, we remember all of those affected and remind ourselves that Boston is just as strong, proud, and brave as ever.

Over the next week, along with our friends at Alex and Ani, we’ll be showing our support by collecting virtual cheers through Thunderclap.it. And we’d love for you to join in. It costs nothing, but means a lot. On the morning of Marathon Monday, these cheers will automatically be sent from the social media accounts of every single one of you who joins in with us.

Simply visit our Thunderclap page here and link your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr. Then, spread the word and help us show the world that we are all still Boston Strong.

– Steve Davis, Chief Executive Officer

First Track from Lana Del Rey’s Much-Anticipated Album Drops

The first official track off Lana Del Rey’s anxiously awaited album, Ultraviolence, has been released. “West Coast” has that velvety, brooding sound the crooner is known for, and it seems to be the perfect tune to heighten any and all anticipation of her forthcoming record. But there’s more: The new single surfaced along with a looped, black-and-white video of Del Rey spinning around on a beach with the same actor from her ”Born to Die” and “Blue Jeans” videos (a taste of what’s to come, perhaps?).

To say I’m counting the days until the full album drops, well – that would be an understatement. Just watch and listen to the video here to see what the hype is all about.

Which The Other Woman Character Are You?

The lawyer. The wife. The girl next door. In The Other Woman, Fox’s upcoming comedy, each character has a personality (and style) all her own. Which one are you most like? Follow our flowchart below to find out.

theotherwoman_flowchart[1]

Carly, Played by Cameron Diaz
You’re a sophisticated siren and the true definition of a modern businesswoman. In the office, you’re known for your collection of sharp suits the watercooler crowd can’t stop talking about. But when five o’clock hits, your friends can spot you in a LBD at the nearby cocktail lounge.

Amber, Played by Kate Upton
An all-American girl through and through, you have a sandal-and-denim collection that would make every Cali girl jealous. When headed out with your friends, you’re not afraid to throw on a deep V-neck – your carefree spirit exudes confidence no matter what you wear.

Kate, Played by Leslie Mann
Classic and put-together, A-line dresses, ballet flats, and cigarette pants fill your closet. You wouldn’t be caught dead leaving the house without a tube of lipstick and, when going out, you never say no to a martini (or three).
