The CFDA has just announced the launch of its China Exchange program, with financial support courtesy of Silas Chou. The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund program is expected to become an ongoing one, but it will launch with Proenza’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez shipping out to Shanghai and Uma Wang visiting New York this spring.

The Next Dimension Of Miranda Kerr, The Perfect Cuff For Suedeheads, Closets Of The Rich And Fabulous, And More…-------
Are we seeing more Miranda Kerr than usual? Actually, with the Australian Angel’s new Steven Meisel-shot Vogue Italia cover (pictured), we are—it’s the first fashion mag in 3-D! [Vogue Italia]
Louis Vuitton’s “Core Values” ad campaign soldiers on with three new stars: Bono, wife Ali Hewson, and (gasp!) some non-LV apparel. Hewson and Bono wear items from their eco-friendly (and LVMH-owned) Edun line in the new shots, along with Vuitton’s own goods (and the first-ever made-in-Africa Vuitton piece—the dangling charm hanging off Hewson’s bag).

Does anyone need a Tom Binns cuff emblazoned with the complete lyrics to the Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now?” Probably not. But are we glad Racked turned it up? Absolutely. [Racked]

Change is in the air at Edun, Ali Hewson’s eco-friendly, ethical line: a new creative director (Sharon Wauchob), a new corporate parent (LVMH), and some prime new real estate at Bloomingdale’s for her men’s pre-fall collection. All of that is new except menswear, which Edun has been doing since the line was founded—but, says Hewson, you’d be forgiven if even that is news to you. “Most people don’t realize that we do men’s,” she admits with a little laugh. “So it’s great to see it here in its own light.” Designed by a transitional team before Wauchob fully takes the reins for Spring ’11, the pre-fall collection is nevertheless a step forward for the brand. It introduces outerwear, a new category for the label, including a cropped leather jacket (in responsible by-product leather) and a full-length snorkel coat. The concept of hemp suiting usually is enough to raise an eyebrow, but Edun may well reclaim it from Woody Harrelson territory with a slouchy, double-breasted version (the jacket is pictured, left, with Edun jeans). A renewed commitment to fits and production should help all of it find a new public. So should the label’s first New York fashion week presentation, when Wauchob shows her first men’s and women’s collections jointly this September.
