Could Yves Saint Laurent return to the world of couture? Hedi Slimane (pictured) says maybe. The new creative director revealed that haute couture is a possibility for the house, although not its primary concern. “The priority today is to revamp and redeploy the luxury ready-to-wear,” Slimane says in a recent interview.

Christmas in July? Since it’s never too early to start thinking about the holidays, eBay has just announced plans for a limited-edition gift collection of men’s and women’s apparel, jewelry, electronics, and home decor, crafted by designers including Billy Reid, Chris Benz, and Steven Alan. [WWD]

He’s back—following a 12-year hiatus, Irish milliner Philip Treacy is making his return to the catwalk. The name behind the head-turning hats seen on British royalty will be showing at 2013 London fashion week alongside Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Anya Hindmarch, Richard Nicoll, and more. [Telegraph]

The latest incarnation of Batman’s alter ego, Bruce Wayne, may be his most fashionable yet. In Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated The Dark Knight Rises, the iconic character’s wardrobe will consist of Giorgio Armani bespoke tailoring made specially for the film. Armani worked with costume designer Lindy Hemming on two suits, both of which have a customized label. [Vogue U.K.]

The second season of “Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis” is already in the works. Diane von Furstenberg will be the first in the hot seat on September 12, right in the midst of fashion week. Following von Furstenberg will be Marc Jacobs, stylist Polly Mellen, and Betsey Johnson. [WWD]

Batman comics aren’t usually stocked alongside fashion mags, but that doesn’t mean they’re not pretty stylish all the same. (Catwoman totally beat nineties Gucci to sex and skintight leather, after all.) And on Monday at Colette, Sarah Lerfel and crew roll out a collection of pieces inspired by Batman, Catwoman, and their DC Comics stablemates for the publisher’s 75th anniversary. Karl Lagerfeld, Roger Vivier, and Lanvin’s Lucas Ossendrijver—who contributed the supremely awesome “Dog Batman” tee (pictured)—are among the designers participating. [WWD]

Olivier Theyskens was in London last night to fête his book The Other Side of the Picture, and had a few choice words about his upcoming Theory collaboration. As he told Susie Bubble, “As a designer, I’m not a guy that can be put in a niche. I’m a guy who can also put his mind to something more global and accessible. Also, I’ve always been hoping that my friends can buy what I design.” [Style Bubble]

Vice founder Gavin McInnes takes GQ through a few choice catastrophes of hipster-dude style. Those with sensitivities to man-clogs, spandex, and cloaks should not read on. [GQ]

And Lindsay Lohan took to Twitter yesterday to ask Chanel to dress up her court-ordered alcohol-monitoring anklet. Stay klassy, Lohan. [Styleite]
