Sweater dressing just got more fun. Designers have been studying their geometry and colorful graphic patterns have made their way onto comfy pullovers. Flare magazine fashion director Liz Cabral demonstrated how right these sweaters can be when she stepped out in London wearing a striped Joe Fresh number with a pair of leather trousers. And the marketplace is filled with covetable options from 3.1 Phillip Lim to Richard Nicoll to Clements Ribeiro. Here, we’ve rounded up four of favorite options. Maybe saying goodbye to summer isn’t so bad after all.

H&M reportedly has a luxury brand in the works, according to WWD. Though the Swedish retailer has “neither confirmed nor denied it,” the project is rumored to include designer Behnaz Aram, formerly of the Swedish label Whyred. [WWD]
The husband-and-wife design duo behind Clements Ribeiro, Inacio Ribeiro and Suzanne Clements, have collaborated with Evans on a line for curvy women. Of the print-heavy collection, they say: “For our first range we addressed the different body shapes, with styles which are accessible but modern, with an emphasis on prints and femininity.” [Telegraph]
Direct R.J. Cutler, the man behind The September Issue, is now casting for the film adaption of the 1986 book Fabulous Nobodies. Cutler (along with producers Julie Anne Quay and Gail Lyon) is looking for a chic twentysomething actress to fill the role of Reality Nirvana Tuttle, “a fashion-obsessed door girl at a downtown nightclub in eighties Manhattan.” [WWD]
Yves Saint Laurent’s former partner Pierre Bergé has spoken about Hedi Slimane’s appointment as YSL’s new creative director for the first time since it was announced. Bergé says Slimane has a challenge ahead of him: “It’s a great problem, very complicated to recreate the work of a genius. Like trying to rewrite Faulkner,” he says. [Vogue U.K.]
The British Fashion Council announced today that Erdem Moralioglu is the winner of the first BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund Award, beating out fellow Britons Angel Jackson, Christopher Kane, Clements Ribeiro, E. Tautz, Marios Schwab, Nicholas Kirkwood, and Richard Nicoll. The award comes with a £200,000 prize and access to mentors across the industry. “I am thrilled to be the winner of the BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund. It is an honor,” the Turkish-born designer said simply.

…Or one of seven of his talented countrymen. British designer Christopher Kane found his line among eight shortlisted for the inaugural BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, an up-and-comer’s prize sponsored by the British Fashion Council and British Vogue. (The award is modeled on a similar initiative of its American counterpart.) In addition to Kane, Angel Jackson, Clements Ribeiro, Savile Row house E.Tautz, Erdem, Marios Schwab, Nicholas Kirkwood, and Richard Nicoll—most of whom will show at London fashion week next month—are in the running for the £200,000 award, which comes with industry mentorship (and, no small boon itself, coverage in the May 2010 issue of British Vogue, where the winner will be announced). Editor in chief Alexandra Shulman will chair the judging panel. We’re sure she’s too professional to give any inkling of her own preference, but the tea leaf readers of fashion will no doubt be scrutinizing her label choices all the same.
With the heat of the British Fashion Council’s 25th anniversary and the subsequent return of so many designers (Jonathan Saunders, Clements Ribeiro, Burberry), there are several very good reasons to head to London in September. Well, here’s another: Dover Street Market will be unveiling a redone shop-in-shop (to replace the temporary one currently installed there) for Nicholas Kirkwood on September 10, stocked with exclusive styles from Fall and the stiletto sultan’s first ever (and well timed) flats. Hurry, Kirkwood-ites, get British Airways on the phone, stat.
