Since she first started making music with Bikini Kill in 1991, Kathleen Hanna has been a beacon of feminist culture, showing everyone the explosive possibilities of combining art with politics. Now, to coincide with The Feminist Press’ release of The Riot Grrl Collection, a compendium of ‘zines, posters, and other memorabilia of the radical punk rock feminist movement, Hanna has partnered with fashion site VFILES to create a riot grrl themed capsule collection. Staying true to Hanna’s civic-minded roots, the proceeds will benefit the Girls Rock Camp Alliance, a non-profit organization whose mission is to “help girls build self-esteem and find their voices through unique programming that combines music education and performance, empowerment and social justice workshops, positive role models, and collaboration and leadership skill building.” Awesome!

Topic: Capsule Collections
Spring is apparently a big time for high profile designer collaborations: Target just announced Phillip Lim as their latest guest tastemaker, NARS and Pierre Hardy have joined forces on shoe-inspired nail polishes, Beyonce had some alleged sway over H&M pieces and the Peter Som Anthropologie collection lands in Anthropologie locations this week.

Do you know about Grimes? Otherwise known as Claire Boucher, she is a mischievous little Canadian ghost who lives inside of synthesizers and casts dancing spells on your feet. She’s also a talented artist and designer, as we have seen with her brilliant “pussy [shaped] rings” and her bad ass artwork. She is also pretty and stylish and kind of blowing up right now. Hence, it comes as no surprise that Yves Saint Laurent would want to put her drawings on some $350 t-shirts.
Apparently, Hedi Slimane personally asked her to design a capsule collection for YSL after shooting her for Dazed and Confused Magazine. When opportunity comes a knockin’, etc. But in case you thought all that attention was going to her head, the musical hermit says she will not be attending Paris fashion week, as she is currently “deep in the Canadian mountains.” More

11 Style Rules From Our Favorite Fictional Schools That We 100 Percent Still Follow
We try not to get our hopes up too much for usually over-hyped, predictably low-quality masstige collections but… we’re looking forward to whatever Jason Wu has up his sleeve for Target. Especially now that they’ve released images of this pretty poplin dress! More
Last night, H&M held its publicity blitz of a runway show (featuring performances by Prince and Nicki Minaj) for their collaboration with the house of Versace. Unsurprisingly, the colors were bright, the prints were loud, and the clothes were very, very tight. Though we’ve posted the full collection piece-by-piece, it’s interesting to see how the pieces look on actual bodies. Or models’ bodies, anyway. More
Remember how Vera Wang designed three separate dresses for Kim Kardashian‘s fairy tale wedding? Remember how you were kind of confused that someone like Wang–who’s built a brand on tradition and tastefulness–would align herself with the most trashy, awful, venal people currently using their cleavage to shill for Midori on television? Well, first of all, we’re glad you were confused. That was critical thinking at work. More
After months of hanging on every campaign shot and rumor (and after enduring the menswear collection), the Versace x H&M lookbook is here. The collection is comprised of 50 unisex grey smocks, all of which obscure the figure from below-the-knees and rise to a high neckline. Basically, it makes the Comme des Garcons x H&M collection look like a bunch of slutty Halloween costumes. More
