Investing in fashion: Moncler’s shares shot up 39% already – too quickly, according to the chief of the Italian stock market.
TGFCFDA (Thank god for CFDA): The CFDA is teaming up with Fashion Calendar and Ruth Finley to provide editors and CFDA members with a more organized calendar of shows and presentations, organized by men’s/women’s wears, presentation/show, time and venue. It’s part of an overarching effort to improve the entire fashion week experience – improvements that are much needed. This will all come into effect by the February shows.
problems: Just because all the fashion folk are taking issue with Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent, doesn’t mean his collections aren’t still selling out. Granted, he’s making limited quantities of those multi-thousand dollar grungy sweaters, but accessories are another story entirely. And they’re selling out, too.
Chanel apologizes: Kind of. A rep apologized for Fashionista’s “misinterpretation” of the Metier d’Art show, which included model Caroline de Maigret in a Native American headdress.
FOMO Major: The NYT finally delves into our terrible, awful, Instagram-induced FOMO.
3-D’s the thing: Fashion takes to 3-D for jewelry, and even a pair of Victoria’s Secret angel wings. Shapeways leads the way.
