The Fashion Bomb news Breakdown: Peter Pilotto Wins British Fashion Council/Vogue Fund, Marc Jacobs Opening Pop-Up-Shop Where You Can Pay For Merch in Tweets, and An Interlude to Victoria Beckham’s Skype Collab ‘Interactive Editorial’


• A big congratulations to Peter Pilotto‘s  Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, for winning this year’s BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund! The pair were announced as the winners today, and will receive $330,000 and a year-long mentorship to help grow their brand. (WWD)



• Marc Jacobs is opening a pop up shop where your money is no good. Or at least, your traditional greenbacks have no value. Just in time for Fashion Week, the designer is setting up the Marc Jacobs Daisy Tweet Shop, at which customers pay for Jacobs products by posting on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. The shop will be open from Feb 7th to 9th, and will be full of goodies for shoppers like food, drinks, a photobooth and a lounge, presumably so you have a nice comfy place to tweet. No word yet on how much a Tweet is worth in terms of actual dollars, but this is quite a cute little marketing ploy. I imagine the space will be a war zone once it opens up. (Fashionista)



• Still trying to make the Google Glass thing happen, the folks at Google have rolled out a range of optical frames which, according to lead designer Isabelle Olsson, are “a very natural extension of things that you already wear.” The new range of Glass frames include $225 titanium options, that come in square, rimless, and round styles, as well as $150 nonperscription sunglasses in white, black, gray, tangerine, and turquoise. Google plans to have the consumer launch of the product later this year, but you can buy the frames today if you were already in Google’s Explorer Program. Anyone ever try Google Glass? We’d love to hear your thoughts on the product. (WWD)


Victoria Beckham has joined forces with the Skype Collaboration Project, on an “interactive editorial” that will give us a closer look at the life and work of the Spice Girl-cum-designer. Skype released the trailer for the project today, full of shots of VB working and jet-setting, along with commentary by industry notables like Vogue UK editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman. Watch it above! (The Cut)
