Heading to drinks at Gottino tonight? Before ordering a glass of red, brush up on the recent happenings in the world of fashion.
Luxury conglomerate LVMH went on a spending spree, plunking down a chunk of cash for a stake in London label J.W. Anderson. It was announced that beyond his eponymous collection duties, the man behind the label will head up design at Spanish leather brand Loewe, also in the LVMH stable.
Speaking of LVMH, even if we haven’t had enough of Marc Jacobs (more nail polish and shirts as dresses, please…) Louis Vuitton might be ready to say au revoir to their American in Paris. Jacobs’ contract with the brand is up at the end of October, though no announcements have been made just yet.
Menswear has been on the upward path these past few years, and a new fashion fund won’t hurt. A 200,000 euro prize will be awarded to the new British Fashion Council/GQ Designer Menswear Fund winner come announcement time.
Ready for holiday shopping? Barney’s announced its specialty holiday shop in store will feature collaborations and curations by Jay Z, to be called "A New York Holiday".
Seems like an aesthetically ideal match: M.I.A. apparently has a collab with Versace coming out very shortly.
In Paris? Stop by the Azzedine Alaia retrospective at the Galliera Palace. It’s like a totally important designer!
