Insider Roundup: Kate Spade Teases Rebranding & More

News to ease the Monday madness


Caught in the Monday madness? We're here to offer a little distraction. From Kate Spade changing their logo to Hedi Slimane's CELINE debuting at Paris Fashion Week, relax, breathe and give our Insider Roundup a scroll to indulge in some news that will ease the early week tension. 


Kate Spade teases logo change



Following the wave of labels changing logos last year, Kate Spade teased that a full alteration is also coming their way before the end of January. The previous logo presented in either black or gold containing the brand name and spade symbol is now reinvented with pink and green hues called "pink kiss" and "clover" respectively and is slated to grace the new line of collections that will be launched before the month ends. From the looks of the comments, people are giving mixed reactions towards this change, but only when their new releases come along will there be a final call if the rebrand is a success. 


"World's Cutest Dog" passes away



Last weekend, the world mourned as Boo, dubbed the "World's Cutest Dog," passed away. According to his owner, the famous Pomeranian died of a broken heart following the death of his best friend and fellow Insta-famous pupper Buddy. Rest in peace, little fella! You and Buddy enjoy doggy heaven, okay?


Black, white and gold gowns graced the Producers Guild Awards red carpet



One of the things that we absolutely adore during awards season is seeing a lot of gorgeous looks on the red carpet. And this weekend, we saw a wide array of elegant gowns in black, white and gold worn by some of our favourites at the Producers Guild Awards. Our top looks include Kate Beckinsale wearing Yanina Couture, Constance Wu in J Mendel and Emma Stone in Louis Vuitton.


Toni Gonzaga launches YouTube channel



Filipino celebrity and multimedia personality Toni Gonzaga officially launches a vlogging channel on YouTube in celebration of her 35th birthday. Upon uploading her first video yesterday, Toni's channel already garnered 47k subscribers but the number is expected to rise as she uploads more candid videos on the platform. It's safe to assume that this move was inspired by her sister and fellow TV personality Alex Gonzaga, who first launched a channel on the platform July 2017. 

CELINE debuts menswear line courtesy of Hedi Slimane



It's been almost a year since Hedi Slimane replaced Phoebe Philo as CELINE's Creative Director but people are still not over the major changes he brought to the brand. Debuting the label's first ever menswear show at Paris Fashion Week last Sunday, the collection aimed to channel a crisp 'retro rock star chic' vibe but was called underwhelming and predictable by many Philo fans and fashion critics. So we ask: how are you finding Hedi Slimane's CELINE so far?
