The equestrian parade continues. The day after Givenchy’s horsey Fall collection, Gucci has announced that Monégasque princess Charlotte Casiraghi (above, at the Cartier International Dubai Polo Challenge earlier this year) will be the face of its forthcoming equestrian-themed Forever Now campaign by photographer Peter Lindbergh.

In a candid moment, Stella McCartney acknowledged that she still finds the fashion industry “intimidating.” “I don’t go into shops much now, but I used to find it really daunting,” the designer said. McCartney has a shop of her own opening later this week: a second London outpost. [Vogue U.K.]

The cogitating around Raf Simons’ departure continues. In a new piece, the Times‘ Cathy Horyn considers the diminishing role of designers. “[You] sense that designers, their talents apart, are being used in a dreary chess game of brand power,” she writes. [NYT]

Speaking of designer change-ups, Maxime Simoens is reportedly leaving his position at Leonard. While the French designer retains his own namesake label, he is rumored to be in contact with Dior executives. [WWD]
