Fortune Favors The Bold, Topshop Favors Chicago, CK One Expands, And More…

-------

The secret to success for the new European collections? According to the IHT‘s Suzy Menkes, boldness. “Who dares, wins,” Menkes pronounces, and accordingly, loves Jil Sander (left) and Marni. [IHT]

CK One is about to be CK Many. Calvin Klein has announced that the iconic fragrance (eau de your editor for the entirety of seventh grade, but he digresses) is expanding into a full lifestyle brand, with jeans, swim, intimates, and more. Get ready for the teenage world order. [Vogue U.K.]

A Russian metals billionaire has bought a controlling interest in Ford Models. Is it just us, or does this sound like the plot point of a yet-to-be-written James Bond flick? [Page Six]
