Last year, Lana Del Rey told Vogue magazine that she was done with the music industry saying “I don’t think I’ll write another record. What would I say? I feel like everything I wanted to say, I’ve said already.”
Well, it looks as if the singer has changed her mind. She was spotted in Santa Monica leaving a recording studio, as well as inside working with previous Born To Die collaborator Rick Nowels. Being a fan of Del Rey, I’m excited to see what she comes up with. Hopefully she will finally cement herself as a talented artist with this sophomore album.

After revealing information about their upcoming album, The Strokes have dropped a new track called “One Way Trigger”. The track (which is not the official single) is reminiscent of their previous aesthetic with a Muse influence, layered with jittery synth-pop and an odd falsetto courtesy of Casablancas.

It looks like the high street is coming to take over fashion week next month! Rihanna recently made an announcement of her show for River Island during London Fashion Week, and now H&M is planning to show in Paris.
According to WWD the Swedish company will debut its 25-outfit show on February 27 at the Musée Rodin during fashion week in Paris, but the show is not an official part of it. A spokesperson for H&M explained to Fashionista,
“In the past we have done fantastic and spectacular events and fashion shows with our designer collaborations and we feel it is time to celebrate our own fashion.”
The last time H&M showed a collection on a runway was in April 2005 in NYC. Hopefully the 8-year break (along with their collaborations with Versace, Comme des Garcon, Lanvin, Karl Lagerfeld and Maison Martin Margiela) will come with a spectacular runway event!
Refresh your memory below with the runway show for Versace for H&M:
