In Case You Missed It: What Happened in Art, Fashion, Pop Culture
SJP launches new jewellery line; Jack O’Connell to play Alexander McQueen; Trolls to be new fashio...
Entertainment 31 Oct 2016

Happy Halloween TAGers! Although some of us are still reminiscing on Halloweekend on Saturday and our successful make up skills! Yet, in this Hong Kong humidity, black eyeliner highlighting a creepy smile or white paint enhancing a ghostly appearance slowly faded or turned into gunge by the end of the night whilst surviving the crowds and excess body heat in bars and nightclubs. Regardless, this year brought fantastic costumes from celebrities. Bette Midler was a highlight making our 90s childhood dreams come true dressing up as her character from the iconic movie Hocus Pocus, as well as Kylie Jenner in Christina Aguilera’s famous “Dirrty” outfit, and Katy Perry transforming herself into Hilary Clinton almost becoming unrecognisable!
Find out what else happened last week below!
 #1  Is Jason Wu’s job in the balance with Hugo Boss’ Change of Direction?
The famed fashion house Hugo Boss recently announced that it will steer away from womenswear and reduce its marketing budget in an effort to return to its roots as a purveyor of men’s suiting. Hugo Boss will therefore plan to lower its prices and focus wholeheartedly on menswear. So what will this mean for artistic director of womenswear Jason Wu whose job now leads a low priority category? Fashionista received an update from the German brand claiming “it will continue its collaboration with Wu who ‘remains extremely important to the company’ and ‘womenswear will remain a key component of our medium-term growth strategy’”.
 #2  Tommy Hilfiger To Sell 5 Works From His Art Collection at Phillips
Fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger will be auctioning off five pieces from his art collection during Phillips upcoming fall auctions in November. The works include Pop art and contemporary favourites Jean Michel Basquiat, Jean Dubuffet, Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, and Keith Haring. All five lots amount to a total of US$ 5,65 million to 8,85 million.
 #3  Sarah Jessica Parker To Debut Jewellery Line
SJP is back with more design flair, this time with a new jewellery line. She has already swayed us away with her latest clothing collection of adorable flowy black dresses, but SPJ is back for more. The actress has collaborated with London-based jewellery designer Kat Florence on “The Flawless Diamonds” collection. The line will comprise of a series of limited edition pieces between 10 and 15 per style, dividing the collection into four chapters, which spotlight various techniques and decades of design.
Get ready to snatch these babies up: the diamond jewellery collection will be available from November 5th.
 #4  Are Emojis Art? Emojis enter MoMA Collection
Over 176 original emojis have entered the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA), designed by the Japanese mastermind Shigetaka Kurita in 1999. Can we consider them art now? MoMA portrayed these pixelated emojis as “humble masterpieces of design that planted the seed for the explosive growth of a new visual language.”
 #5  Jack O’Connell To Play Alexander McQueen in New Biopic
Since January, it was announced that an Alexander McQueen biopic was in the pipeline, which led to the pending question of who would play the remarkable designer. The answer: Jack O’Connell, the star of “Unbroken” and “Money Monster”, however he is perhaps best known for his role in the groundbreaking British show “Skins”. We must say, the resemblance is uncanny! See for yourselves in the image above.
 #6  Trolls to be the New Fashion Trend? 
Trolls seem to be popping up every where, from the screen to stores. After the new Dreamworks’ “Trolls” movie came out, those iconic 80s toys fascinate young crowds and those young at heart. It has even caught the attention of handbag and accessory designer Danielle Nicole, who has debuted two bags based the animation. (see below)
Although, she is not alone. Macy’s has also jumped on the bandwagon, launching an exclusive Betsey Johnson xox Trolls collection, on top of a licensed Troll merchandise. Indeed, it seems like we cannot stop feeling, JT!
