Olsen worshippers, start praying to the ticket gods: Ashley (pictured in Erdem from Sunday’s Golden Globes awards ceremony) has announced that they’ll be hosting the first show for The Row this February in New York. We’re guessing these gods in particular appreciate sacrificial offerings of leather leggings and enormous Givenchy bags. [Vogue U.K.]
Would you wear the floral-print sweatsuits from Opening Ceremony’s latest collaboration with NYC streetwear darlings Pegleg? Office opinion is divided here; Racked, on the other hand, feels pretty certain. [Racked]
Edun has tapped longtime LVMH textile designer Sharon Wauchob as its new creative director. Her first collection will be for Spring 2011. [WWD]
The trade-fair tale is often best told by the numbers: This year, Pitti Uomo has 765 exhibitors showing a total of 936 brands over 59,000 square meters. What possible sense can you hope to make of that in the mere hours you have, wandering with increasing aimlessness down avenue after avenue of immaculately made men’s clothing and accessories? Certain trends impress with their omnipresence. Winter 2010 is clearly all about duffel coats, heavy hiking-influenced footwear, and a strengthened Japanese presence.

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.
Christopher Bailey, Jonathan Saunders, and Matthew Williamson may have made headlines with their homecomings, but the real story at London fashion week—the one that will matter after Burberry returns to Milan and the 25th anniversary buzz wears off—is the city’s impressive roster of emerging talent. For those who missed the festivities, the British Fashion Council is staging its third London Show Rooms event here in Paris, and yesterday Style.com’s Sarah Mower hosted the opening brunch. While the discoveries of previous seasons were busy taking orders and planning trunk shows—Mary Katrantzou with Chicago’s Blake, and Erdem Moralioglu with Barneys—newbies like Michael Van Der Ham, LP.BG
