The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Fashion Critics Slam Kanye West’s Collection, June Ambrose Reality Show Already Filming, and a Look at the Versace x H&M Campaign

• While DW by Kanye West gave many of you “life,” it seems to have had the opposite effect on fashion’s toughest critics. in a review for The Wall Street Journal titled “Good Thing Kanye West Has a Day Job,” (ouch!) Christina Brinkley said of one look: “The only thing more painful than witnessing the dress was watching the model pitch down the runway in shoes so ill-fitting that her spike heels were bending at angles. ‘I feel sorry. Why not take that look out?’ asked one cringing magazine editor.” and “a vast quantity of luxury materials can’t blind people to a lack of creative marksmanship. There’s something about fashion design that makes untrained people think they can do it, too.” Yikes. But if we know anything about Yeezy, he’ll be sure to push his product, and I warrant we’ll see some of his pieces on a few celebs. I mean, he did sell 808’s and Heartbreak. (WSJ)

Sessilee Lopez stars in Suno‘s fashion film for Fall/Winter 2011. Created by co-designer Max Osterweis, the film features models running with slow-mo urgency, a trunk in a pool, an abandoned mansion, and ominous piano music that sounds like it came from a WWII movie. (Fashionista)

• June Ambrose‘s reality show, Styled by June, is already taping. The stylist stopped by Paul Stuart in NYC to style actor Jaleel White. Strapping, no? (Beauty is Diverse)

• And now, another knockoff from Forever 21. Compare their “Sparkling Triangles necklace,” $14.80 on the left to Made Her Think‘s “Horizons Necklace” for $345. (The Cut)

• Here’s a look at one of the VersaceH&M ads! This collection is taking me back to the 90s so hard. Now, if only we could turn the clock back to that good economy and awesome Nickelodeon programming! What do you think? (Fashin)

• According to WWD, Jason Wu will be the next designer to collaborate with Target. Wu said, “The exciting thing about this limited edition collection of affordable women’s wear and accessories is that it allows me to reach a wider audience and bring my designs to people who may not have been able to purchase them before…My collection for Target is chic and wearable. I think women everywhere will enjoy it.” (WWD)
