Monteiro For Blass, Wu For Tse, And More…


Karl Lagerfeld used to sleep in a boxing ring. So not surprised. [WWD]

Rumor du jour: Jeffrey Monteiro is heading to Bill Blass. We’re cool with it as long as he keeps designing his own line. [WWD]

It’s not Jason Wu for Target, but Wu’s decision, announced today, to design a capsule collection for TSE is probably just the beginning of Wu’s cross-market domination—Wu-mination, if you will. The line will be on view during New York fashion week in February. [WWD]

Lorenzo Martone is one half of ARC NY, a new “boutique talent p.r. agency for catwalkers.” Lydia Hearst and Alessandra Ambrosio are already signed up, and we’d be surprised if more of Martone’s high-profile crew don’t join, too. [Page Six]

Speaking of Lorenzo, Marc Jacobs has admitted to being a little awed and impressed by his Louis Vuitton customers: “There’s this huge cult following of almost crazy people at Vuitton who just want whatever they buy to be exclusive.” Don’t get him wrong—he’s not complaining. [Times U.K.]

The Times investigates “the steady infiltration of 19th-century haberdashery into the 21st-century wardrobe,” which is a nifty way of saying guys are dressing like Civil War re-enactors. Muskets are going to be huge. [NYT]

Buy Luella to save Luella. At 50 percent off, this is a slogan we can get behind. [Fashionista]

Olivier Zahm is bringing his particular brand of photography to New York. His show—the editor’s first—opens December 1 at the Half Gallery. Don’t bring your mom (unless you’re a Roitfeld). [BlackBook]

Put down that bamboo. It may be toxic. The eco fabric gets a dressing down in the Wall Street Journal, which means we may have to go back to wearing hemp. [WSJ]
