TEENS AND QUEENS: Hoxton Bar & Kitchen opened its doors Sunday night   to London's teens, drag queens and some run-of-the-mill fashion folk to fete the launch of the McQ spring ad campaign. The campaign has been produced by   a mix of art students, models, photographers and young creatives, who'd each   been loaned some of the clothing - and asked to come up with an image for the   season. McQueen himself chose the final images, which have been fly-posted around London, New York, and Tokyo. It's the second ad campaign for McQ, which showed   last week in New York. At the party, among the teens with glitter-faces and   day-glow clothing, was none other than Kelly Osbourne. "I really love London   Fashion Week. I'm going to see Giles Deacon, the new Marc by Marc Jacobs - and   Julien Macdonald, even though he uses really thin models, I really love his   clothes, they're just beautiful," she said.
 
HOLLAND'S HOUSEMATES: Henry Holland, the London whippersnapper behind   the t-shirts that poke fun at fashion designers - as in "Get a tickle from   Richard Nicoll," and "Get Yer Freak on with Giles Deacon" - is already   accessorizing. He's collaborated with Mulberry designer Stuart Vevers on a   line of canvas tote bags, under the label House of Holland and Stuart Vevers.   The bags will come in Holland's signature day-glo colors, and be printed with   slogans in homage to Vevers. And that's not all: Holland has teamed up with   Kickers to design the footwear for his very first show this season. Dubbed the   Kick HOH, the patent leather retro shoes come in eye-popping color combinations,including turquoise and pink. A limited number of pairs went on sale in Dover   Street Market Monday - the day of his show. After London Fashion Week, they'll   wholesale alongside the line of t-shirts Holland presented for fall. Meanwhile,   Holland's spring collection of designer slogan t-shirts will go on sale at Barneys   and Harvey Nichols later this month.
 
GREEN SLEEVES: "We're sacking the sackcloth! This is the end of ethical   fashion as fringe," said Matilda Lee, editor of The Ecologist magazine's   new 48-page guide to ethical fashion. The booklet, released Sunday, profiles   the eco-friendly labels on show at The Exhibition, the trade show that takes   place in tandem with London Fashion Week. The cover features Lily Cole wearing   a sackcloth - that's been carefully shaped into a strapless dress. Inside,   there are stories on climate change, the global garment workforce, tips for   "greening" your wardrobe and eco-fabrics of the future. Jute jackets, anyone?   The booklet also profiles the designers who are taking part in Estethica, the   eco-fashion zone at The Exhibition. Esthethica showcases clothing labels that   are fashion-forward and eco-friendly, fair-trade-focused or organic.
