Celine Grows Fast, China Grows Faster, Barneys’ Best New Dresses, And More…


Celine’s on the expansion plan. According to CEO Marco Gobetti, the do-no-wrong minimal line is going maximalist in its U.S. push. Expect a new Madison Avenue store with 4,500 square feet of Phoebe Philo’s finery (left)—not to mention a brand-new Paris space as well. [;WWD]

Chinese consumers appetites for high-end fashion is growing, too—lightning-quick. Luxury brands are racing to open new stores in the country (“Every mall in Beijing has a Versace, and every year there’s another mall,” said one local), spending is up, and fashion magazines in the Far East have a problem their Western counterparts would give their eye teeth for: too much advertising.

And it’s another coup for the hottest model of the moment: no, not Arizona Muse; her 2-year-old son, Nikko. Junior’s getting bookings as regular as his mom’s these days—the duo just nabbed the May J.Crew catalog, and previously were shot by Mario Sorrenti for Riccardo Tisci’s religion-themed Visionaire.
