Tired of envying your neighbor’s closet? Take a break and envy her whole apartment, instead. Refinery29 takes a peek inside the Brooklyn digs of Jane Herman, Gap’s director of concept. We shall not covet… [Refinery29]
Pamela Love will join forces with Topshop for her first-ever retailer collaboration; a range of Love’s America-inspired jewels for the Brit chain will debut in April. (A look from Love’s Fall 2011 collection is at left.) [Fashionologie]
And it’s now Dr. Bailey to you (and all of us)—Burberry’s Christopher Bailey has been presented with an honorary doctorate by Yorkshire’s Sheffield Hallam University. [WWD]
The pre-fall shows continue to roll out: We’ve added Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani, and later today we’ll be publishing Alexander Wang’s pre-fall ’11 collection. Wang’s famous for wearing his hallmark stretched-out T-shirt to even the occasional black tie gala, but for the ladies, he’s proposing a more traditional formalwear—the tux. His slouchy take on the menswear staple was shown with a white turtleneck (above center). He’s not the only one offering gender-bending women’s tuxedos, either. Armani showed them for both his eponymous and his Emporio collections (that’s the GA tux, above right), and Burberry’s Christopher Bailey had slinky his-and-hers versions (hers, above left) at Burberry Prorsum‘s presentation last month. And at Reed Krakoff and Jason Wu, the designers tweaked tradition by cutting out a piece: Krakoff (below left) lost the shirt, while Wu (below right) blew up the bowtie and nixed the jacket.

The U.K. edition of Gentlemen’s Quarterly—a magazine that ought to know about such things—published its list of the 50 most stylish men in Britain online today. (The print edition, which will also include the ten worst-dressed men, not only in Britain but worldwide, arrives on Thursday.) The inclusion of young Romeo Beckham (#26, ten spots behind his father) has caused the most commotion. But there are plenty of other reasons to check it out.
For one, the Beckhams aren’t the only family pair included. Princes William (#27) and Harry (#5) both made the list, with a 22-place differential that ought to make for a bit of sibling rivalry. A few gentlemen included (Alasdhair Willis, #42; David Walliams, #11) may have had a little help from their fashionable wives (that’d be Stella McCartney and Lara Stone, respectively). One married pair even had both partners on the list: Sir Elton John (#21) and husband David Furnish (#6). (We personally look forward to the day when all three members of the family show up: the Rocket Man, his mate, and their new baby son, Zachary Furnish-John.)
Several unimpeachable icons of Brit style (David Hockney, #47; Bryan Ferry, #36) as well as a few designers (Christopher Bailey, left, #33; and the not-quite-British Tom Ford, #7) made the cut. Ford’s protégé of sorts, Nicholas Hoult, star of A Single Man and of Ford’s recent campaigns, clocks in at #3. And at #1? Nowhere Boy star Aaron Johnson, more familiar to American tabloid audiences than movie audiences: The 20-year-old proposed to director Sam Taylor-Wood, 43, shortly after wrapping the Lennon biopic.

Christopher Bailey’s Burberry Acoustic video series—which we’ll be running exclusively here on Style.com, leading up to the live-stream of the Spring ’11 Burberry show on Tuesday—continues today with a new, unplugged track from One Night Only. The Yorkshire-born band recorded their track, “Chemistry,” live at Ampleforth Lakes in North Yorkshire, where they used to spend summers. (Hey, you can’t always hang out in back alleys behind the pub, like yesterday’s Acoustic performers.) Give a listen, and for more from our Burberry series, check out Part I, featuring Patch William, and Part II, with the Cheek.
