Newlywed Erin Fetherston will soon be wearing her namesake to bed. The vintage lover is bringing out her inner vixen through a bridal lingerie collaboration with Cosabella. Erin Fetherston & Cosabella will launch with coordinated sets and baby doll underpinnings in an array of lace, mesh, satin, and chiffon that offer Fethertson’s ethereal aesthetic. “My designs and personal style have always been feminine and romantic, so it felt organic for me to translate that to lingerie,” she told WWD. “I’ve always adored the notion of the bridal trousseau, and I always thought intimates was a category that my aesthetic would translate well into.” [WWD]

Helena Christensen doesn’t need a stylist to land her on the cover, honey. The 44-year-old fashion feline styled herself sexy for Gregory Derkenne‘s lens in indie glossy FutureClaw. The seductive star also acted as location scout for the shoot, which took place in her NYC abode. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Dutch duo Viktor & Rolf just made it harder for you to settle on a wedding gown. The pair launched their premiere bridal capsule collection, Marriage, which features six elegant styles for their Spring 2014 range. “We’ve always loved designing bridal wear because a wedding dress is a garment with a lot of meaning and emotions attached to it,” said designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, who’ve designed one-off bridal looks in the past. “The wedding dress is the ultimate clothing icon.” [Vogue UK]

Barneys is bringing out the best in preppy-meets-cool wears with Edith A. Miller. Nancy Gibson and Jennifer Murray, who are responsible for the brand’s camo prints and nautical stripes, said working with the “super creative” Barneys team helped them develop a twist to their trademark style. “They were willing to try things we have never done before and use new fabrics like the marine camo,” Gibson told ELLE.com.“Barneys loved the blue camo and from there, Jennifer and I started creating and proposing different combinations in tandem with our classic stripes for consideration.” [ELLE]

Speaking of collaborations, Vogue Italia‘s Franca Sozzani and British photographer Miles Aldridge are sharing their 18-year rapport with Nowness and EDITION hotels. The pair have orchestrated countless shoots for the venerable glossy since meeting in 1995, magic they attribute to precision and trust. “Just as I believe many great Hollywood movies were made the studio system, under that sort of rigor, I believe many great photographs are made in the same way,” Aldridge says in the clip. Sozzani shares her sentiments, adding “I always trust people with whom I work; I cannot think that people who are working with me are not the best people around because otherwise, I would be wrong in choosing them.” [Nowness]

Let Uniqlo‘s stateside takeover begin. The Japanese giant is opening ten new stores in the U.S. this fall; four in California, one in Connecticut, two in New Jersey, and three in New York. [Racked]

Sharing Instagram posts has gotten easier. Now, if you visit the site on a web browser, you’ll be able to embed photos and videos from the service where ever HTML is allowed. For fashion, this means more visibility and the potential to sell. “It’s a new sense of branding for consumers,” Rebecca Minkoff told WWD. “And for brands, whether they take their own photos or use consumers’ photos, it can help sell product.” [WWD]

Anthropologie is going from Rags2Riches. The Urban Outfitters property teamed up with the sustainable brand for a range of woven bags that will bring attention to artisans in impoverished countries. “We formed Rags2Riches as an eco-ethical fashion and lifestyle company that provides… [artisans] with access to the top designers in the country, access to training and quality of life programmes, as well as access to the market,” founder Reese Fernandez said.
