KATE MOSS GOES SHEER

The supermodel poses in a nude Marios Schwab bodysuit for Esquire, Henry Holland launches an ice cream van, and does plus size really sell better? Those stories and more in Linkbait.

Kate Moss in Marios Schwab bodysuit for Esquire

KATE MOSS DOES HER FIRST MEN’S COVER IN 17 YEARS

Lucky Esquire. They’ve convinced Kate Moss to do her first ever men’s magazine cover in 17 years (the last one was for the now-defunct Arena) – and they’ve even convinced her to do it naked! Well, partially naked. A glittery bejewelled bodysuit by Marios Schwab is the only thing protecting her modesty. Well, that’s one way to get vajazzled, we guess? [HuffPo]

H&M swimwear plus size

DOES PLUS SIZE SELL BETTER?

It’s an old adage in fashion that skinny sells – but it turns out that plus size might just sell better. Nika Mavrody spoke to online retailer Modcloth, who revealed that the average plus size customer spends 25% more than their thinner counterparts and that it’s selling more plus size clothing as a result. Meanwhile, H&M (above) has scored a viral hit by including a plus-sized model in its regular swimwear campaign. Of course, this might only apply to more commercial retailers and labels – but it’s an encouraging sign that consumer demand is capable of encouraging size diversity. [The Fashion Spot]

Socks and sandals at Kenzo spring/summer 2013

SOCKS AND SANDALS – THE BIGGEST FASHION FAUX PAS AROUND

Sure, they were everywhere on the SS13 catwalks, from Vuitton to Kenzo (above), but a survey by Debenhams revealed that many regard socks and sandals as the ultimate style mistake. According to a Debenhams spokesperson, “It might look chic on a catwalk but this isn’t a look that many of us want to see on our local high streets.” But honey, what if the local high street is your catwalk?

Henry Holland Mr Quiffy Ice Cream Van

WHAT’S THAT JINGLE IN THE AIR? OH, IT’S HENRY HOLLAND, ICE CREAM VAN MAN

Food trucks? So over. The newest pop-up du jour is the mobile boutique. Henry Holland is taking his high summer collection on tour in a converted ice cream van called Mr Quiffy’s – and if you’re lucky, you might get to meet Holland. The designer’s stipulated that every member of his team, himself included, has to work a day in the van. Look out for Mr Quiffy’s in London and Manchester. [BoF]

Tamara Mellon fashion line

JIMMY CHOO, WHO? TAMARA MELLON LAUNCHES NAMESAKE LINE

The ex-Jimmy Choo CEO knows what works in business – which is why we think Tamara Mellon, her debut label, might just be one of fashion’s success stories this year. If the collection preview, is anything to go by, the line will be an enticingly luxurious take on the glam-meets-sexy toughness that Mellon pulls off so well. Plus she has a unique “buy now, wear now” business proposition, which means the autumn/winter offering will go on sale when it’s actually cold and not in the height of summer. Sounds good to us.
