Over in London, the fashion set celebrates Fashion’s Night In, with exclusive deals, live chats with designers, and get-it-first opportunities. Don’t know about you, but after Halloween, we could definitely use a night in. Let’s bring this one to the U.S., hmm? [Vogue U.K.]
Bloomingdale’s is known for its shopping bags—it’s Big Brown Bag is something of a modern icon—but for its latest revamp, the store has tapped a few of its nearest and dearest to put their own spin on the shoppers. Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, Michael Kors, and Elie Tahari have all contributed new designs, which will begin rolling out next month. [WWD]
The half-glam, half-casual look that’s been a staple of the party circuit for months now finally has a name, courtesy of J.Crew head of women’s design Marissa Webb. (She’s contributed plenty of looks to the genre, like this Fall ’10 one, left.) Ladies, you’re wearing the “intentional screw-up”—yes, it sounds a little bit boarding-school-girl-gone-bad, and yes, we kinda like that about it. [WSJ]
And speaking of boarders-gone-bad, Ryan McGinley hit San Francisco recently for a new show of photos of attractive, young, naked twenty-somethings. Hey, if it ain’t broken… [Hint Mag]
Watch live-streaming video of the Michael Kors Spring 2011 collection here. The show begins at 10 am.
Balenciaga has revamped its Paris flagship. At the newly redone Avenue George V store, you’ll find more of Ghesquière’s (left) covetable collection, an ornate banister borrowed from the Balenciaga archives, and an enormous starburst clock—just don’t try to tell time by it, as it runs backwards. “Back to the future,” CEO Isabelle Guichot explains.

Fashionista checked in with a psychic for NYFW predictions. What was in her crystal ball? Jewels at Marc, a solo reality show for Michael Kors, and good tidings for Jeffrey Monteiro at Bill Blass. Time will tell! (Except at Balenciaga in Paris, where it runs backwards.) [Fashionista]
Acne has launched a small capsule collection aimed at transvestites. Would it be wrong to say “fabulous”? [Vogue U.K.]
And Barneys’ Simon Doonan is leaving the New York Observer after ten years to pen a column for the online political mag Slate. [Fashionologie]
In our print-crazed moment, wild designs of every stripe are getting fresh looks, from printed pants to clashing patterned outfits. But around our office, we’ve been feeling the time’s right for a more classic, utilitarian print to make a comeback, too: good, old-fashioned army/navy camouflage. Looks like we’re not alone. Chris Benz, in the Times today, discussed his renewed fondness for all things camo (including the more graphic Australian and Duck patterned versions), and designers from Prada to J Brand to Rag & Bone have all showed print pieces. They’re bold enough to look basic, even neutral—but you definitely won’t blend in. Here are a few of our favorite items.

Prada bifold Saffiano leather wallet, $355, available at www.prada.com.

Style.com’s Fashion Feed brings you the best of the news around the Web and on Twitter, and ranks the most-discussed designers, labels, models, and celebrities. In our weekly series, we call out the top five designers of the previous week (with our handy gloss on the hows and whys).
1. Marc Jacobs (pictured; last week: 1)
Three weeks in a row at No. 1—who else could it be but Marc Jacobs? His revealing interview with Calvin Klein from September’s Harper’s Bazaar, with its frank talk about ulcerative colitis and his penchant for stripping down, made waves; and for the aesthetes, well, there’s always an in-depth analysis of the Bang bottle if all that tabloid talk feels forced.
2. Alexander Wang (last week: 4)
It was a big week for Wang: His first-ever campaign video (with Abbey Lee, Craig McDean, Karl Templer, and Fabien Baron) launched here on Style.com, and his latest poster campaign for T (with Zoë Kravitz and Max Motta) hit the Lower East Side.
3. Vera Wang (last week: 3)
Another week, another celebrity bride in Vera Wang. Hilary Duff wed hockey player Mike Comrie in Vera this weekend, keeping VW in the running for the third week in a row.
4. Michael Kors (last week: N/A)
The champion of American sportswear got the full profile treatment in New York magazine this week, and he’s as quippy as ever, sounding off on Frenchwomen, reality TV, and his private life.
5. Victoria Beckham (last week: 2)
The tabs said she was pregnant, her rep says she’s not. All in a week’s work for Victoria Beckham, pap target, No. 1 WAG, and, oh yeah, pretty decent clothing designer.
