Step right up, dedicated shoppers: Chloe Sevigny’s Resort ’11 collection for Opening Ceremony goes on pre-sale today. Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like one of Sevigny’s Robert Mapplethorpe-print T-shirts. (But probably not for grandma’s stocking, as most of them are NSFW.) [Fashionologie]

In London, Mulberry’s on top. The resurgent brand tripled its profits in the last sixth months, was named Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, and is now opening a new Bond Street flagship that’s a giant 5,400 square feet. In other words: A whole lotta Alexas. [WWD]

A New Campaign Girl And A New Campaign Trans Girl, One Lucky Lizard, And More…


Calvin Klein has unveiled its latest fragrance and its latest fragrance campaign star: They are, respectively, Beauty and Diane Kruger, who appears in the ads looking fresh, clothed, and sweet. In other words, like she wandered in from someone else’s beauty campaign. Where’s the sweat, linoleum, and conservative-horrifying sex? [WWD]
