Band of Outsiders’ range of polos is called, per usual Sternbergian antics, “This Is Not a Polo Shirt.” Okay. But this is a new e-commerce site where you can buy them and have them shipped right to your door. [Blackbook]
Roger Vivier brand ambassador Inès de la Fressange (pictured) is writing a chic guide to Paris, after years of being hounded by journalists and friends for the best salon/restaurant/shop/anything else in her city. Finally, a Lonely Planet for the Chanel backpacking set! [WWD]

And today in unnecessary brand extensions: Jason Wu has put his name on a line of GE digital cameras to be sold on HSN. Jason, if you’re looking to fritter away the last of that MObama-accrued capital, this is probably a good way to go. [DVice via Racked]
If Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant has her way, offices will be filled with stylish Don Draper and sultry Joan clones. Bring it on. [WWD]
Introducing Edward, the new men’s line from Duckie Brown and Odin. As girls, we are officially jealous. [WWD]
Yes, Lindsay, it’s called pre-fall. Miss Lohan was pretty sure she had more time to work on her sophomore Ungaro collection, but the next show is fast approaching: “It’s already in January…I thought it was in March.” [People]
We didn’t know this was a revolving title, but apparently Inès de la Fressange has replaced Carla Bruni-Sarkozy as “the Most Chic Woman in Paris.” She’s certainly stylish, but check her out above, what do you think? [Telegraph U.K.]
Speaking of Inès, Karl Lagerfeld once had some not so nice things to say about her. Here, a handy compilation of the Kaiser’s bons mots over the years. [Jezebel]
Gucci catches on to the social media trend with the launch of a “global, multilingual, social networking microsite” today. Gucci lovers can upload pictures of themselves, which will be reflected in shades from new line Gucci Eyeweb. Next month, they’re switching to ski goggles. Very clever. [WWD]
Penélope Cruz in SATC 2? Now we’re interested. [People]
Proof that Parisians love clothes? Witness the suited and booted guests at Vincent Darré and Inès de la Fressange’s cocktail celebrating Maison Darré’s one-year anniversary. Less is more might be the mantra of stateside summer dressing, but in Paris what you wear is not something to be taken lightly: Note de la Fressange’s velvet boots, Nicolas Ghesquière’s woolly sweater, Darré’s dark blazer, and coats and jackets for the ladies. No matter what the temperature, some people are just cool. What does French style mean to you?

Fabien Baron and Karl Templer must have something lined up in This Unstable Economy, otherwise their joint exit from Interview would be highly unadvised. Or just ballsy.

Uniqlo’s list of participants in its Designers Invitation Project is complete: Steven Alan (for women), Opening Ceremony (men), Shipley & Halmos (women), and Gilded Age (men). Prices stop at $79. Sweet fashion relief.
With Jean-Paul Goude doing the rounds this week and Inès de la Fressange at Gaultier Paris, it seems like a full-on eighties couture revival is upon us. Alexandre Vauthier, former first assistant to Gaultier and a veteran of Thierry Mugler’s atelier, narrowed his vision on Grace Jones. A pointy shoulder formed the main silhouette story and Vauthier took it to extremes, sending out the kind of sharp angles that of course recall the decades-old heyday of Mugler and Gaultier (well, actually, also Gaultier’s current day) as well as the more recent revival kick-started by Martin Margiela. Still, it was somewhat of a time warp. Sessilee Lopez with an ultra-cinched waist and shoulders out to there was pure Grace incarnate. Not that we minded. When it comes to full-on fashion drama, we’re slaves to the rhythm.
