STYLE SCOOP: Fighting Words from Roberto Cavalli, New from A.L.C. and Eddie Borgo

Breaking: Effective immediately, Matthew Singer resigns from his post as men’s fashion director of Neiman Marcus, a title he held since 2012 when he made the move to Neiman’s from Bloomingdale’s.

Them’s Fighting Words: Italian designer Roberto Cavalli made it clear on this recent New York trip that he doesn’t care for American fashion in the slightest. According to the Italian, we’re sadly, “negatively” wearing black to look thinner. He also asks Michael Kors to please stop copying him. But I can’t remember the last time a Michael Kors put a slinky (to put it nicely), thigh-high slitted, multi-animal-printed dress on the runway. You know?

HBD Eddie Borgo: The jewelry designer’s collection turns five, and in celebration, he’s unveiled a revamped website. The website will be Eddie Borgo exclusive inclusive.

A.L.C. is Launching Bags: and they are pretty! Six styles will be offered, beginning in January.

Jewels for LV: Louis Vuitton is bringing jewelry designer Camille Miceli back into the fold after a few years at Christian Dior, where she focused on costume jewelry. She’ll operate in a similar capacity with Louis Vuitton beginning after the couture collections.

Agency for Sale: IMG will be bought by Silver Lake and William Morris Endeavors, bringing a whole lotta models (like Karlie Kloss) and athletes into WME’s entertainment fold. IMG is going for about $2.4 billion.

MacGil: Gillis MacGil, a supermodel before the term extisted, has died. She was 85.

Resort 2013 Roundup: Printspiration, Metallics, More

Resort season has always been my favorite season for fashion because it’s that in-between stage when designers can unapologetically churn out a look that channels the love child of spring and fall. Think long-sleeved mini dresses, shorts with loose knits, slacks with tanks, lightweight suits, etc. And prints! Designers really get down with prints here. Case in point: these gratifying graphics by PreenMarc Jacobs and Suno. Read on for a few more trend takeaways.

Front Slits


Obviously traumatized by Angelina Jolie’s right leg fiasco at the Oscars, NAHMA.L.C. and Reed Krakoff all took a subtler approach to skin-baring slits.



From slithery silk onesies to sleeveless florals to what can only be described as "lab chic,"  Theyskens’ TheoryThakoon and Band of Outsiders all jumped on the jumpsuit train this season.



Perhaps in homage to the late and great Donna Summer, Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors and Belstaff debuted disco-friendly looks that were heavy on the metals.
