Banning the mini

Picture
Indonesia religious affairs minister,Suryadharma Ali, has proposed a ban on miniskirts , believing them to be pornographic. Ali was hired this month to head up the anti-pornography campaign Task Force and is calling for public input as to what constitutes a "porn crime".
"We still haven't established criteria, but we know pornography when see it," Mr Ali said, according to the  Wall Street Journal. "There should be general criteria, for example skirts worn by women must flow past the knees."
This isn't the first time miniskirts have been a subject of debate in the country - earlier this month, Indonesia's House of Representatives speaker, Marzuki Alie, suggested female staff should stop wearing short skirts. He argued that the item could lead to rape.


Banana split 

Picture
An unusual competitor has appeared on Dolce & Gabbana's radar in the shape of South African seaside jewellery store Dolce and Banana - who now face prosecution. The luxury label has accused store-owner Mijou Beller - who has been in business for 12 years, crafting costume jewellery from driftwood and shells  of "diluting" its brand name and ignoring two previous warnings. Beller insists that the tongue-in-cheek name meant no harm.

Rihanna uncovered

Picture
Looks can be deceiving if Vogue cover girl Rihanna's latest proclamations of bashfulness are to be believed. The Barbados-born singer, known for her risqué outfits and provocative stage performances, has spoken about how she too has dealt with pangs of low body confidence

The carven effect

Picture
When designer Guillaume Henry took the helm of dormant couture house Carven and reinvented it as an affordable ready-to-wear luxury label, its owners could scarcely have believed what a wise move it would be. The label's quirky chicness has all but sold out at every major British retailer that carries it.
"Carven has been the fastest selling new designer for us this season," Luisa De Paula, MY-WARDROBE.COM's buying and merchandising director, told us. "The fastest-selling items have been the red silk drawstring waist dress, the map print dress and particularly the Robert Clergerie Z Line lace-up raffia shoes, which sold out in 24 hours of going live. Every piece of the collection has that luxury couture heritage, but is so wearable and at a great price point.  Each piece is so special with a unique twist on a classic; whether it's a blouse with twisted silk, a full skirt with a layered waistband or a dress with a drawstring waist to create an unusual silhouette."


Russia on the fashion rise

Picture
London, Paris, New York and Milan may be the world's most famous fashion destinations, but renowned journalist Gianluca Longo explains why Russia is the industry's new style spot. Here, he reports from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia, which took place last week in Moscow.
"Russian fashion is evolving and taking its own stake in the international panorama. With many young fashion designers emerging, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Russia has become the starting point for many - giving new talents exposure to international press and buyers."



Luxury H&M

Picture
Further to rumours earlier this week about a possible H&M luxury brand launching, H&M has confirmed it intends to debut a new chain of stores in 2013 to broaden its offering.
"We have many different projects in progress and already next year we will be launching a completely new store chain,"
The company has not yet confirmed details of the projected price points or product offering, but Persson spoke positively about the new brand's potential.
