It’s a changing of the guard at DVF: Longtime creative director Nathan Jenden (pictured, with Diane) is stepping down to focus on his own line, and Yves Mispelaere—formerly of Chloé and Gucci—is taking the reins. [WWD]
Collab-happy Comme des Garçons is at it again. The brand is working with Moncler in Japan to launch a pop-up store at CDG’s revolving storefront in Aoyama, selling both labels’ designs and select co-branded items. In usually cryptic Comme fashion, a spokeswoman wouldn’t comment on what exactly would be offered. So…Tokyo road trip? [WWD]
The New York Times takes the temperature of Zac Posen, who’s toned down the theatrics of his shows and lifestyle to focus on his collections. It’s the latest in a long line of What the Recession Means to Me pieces, but it’s worth a read for the gossip and the good advice. (For example: Don’t try to style Zac with the Count from Sesame Street. It’s just a coincidence that they kind of look and dress alike.) [NYT]
Gawker’s story yesterday about fashion week’s attempted teenage crashers has every PR person in town on high alert. But these guys have snuck in before. Fashionista has a shot of Remy Renzullo sitting front-row at Derek Lam—right next to Suzy Menkes. Oops. [Fashionista]

Seen once, seen twice, seen three times—yup, it’s a trend. Origami details at Christopher Kane, Louise Goldin, and at Wednesday’s Nathan Jenden show suggest the designers were inspired by the Japanese art of paper folding. But even in fabric, the results are delicate as all hell. Forget the dry cleaner; those pieces should come with a bottle of Woolite.
