Phillip Lim’s New Handbag Collection, London Cracks Down On Fashion Intern Exploitation, Todd Selby X Hogan, And More…

3.1 Phillip Lim, which first launched its handbag and footwear collection for Fall, is set to release its new 31 Hour bag line this Spring. The collection of four styles, including a cosmetic clutch, a portfolio, a classic tote, and a weekend, is designed for a woman “who needs more than 24 hours a day.” [WWD]

In London, over 100 fashion houses have been given a warning not to exploit interns. “The letters give fashion houses plenty of warning that they are under scrutiny. If they are not playing by the rules, now is the time to put things right,” says Michelle Wyer of HM Revenue & Customs. [Telegraph]

Minnie’s Getting Major

-------

If you’ll recall, SoCal-via-U.E.S. socialite Minnie Mortimer Gaghan started her label quite organically by running up a few things that she (and soon her friends) wanted to wear and couldn’t find. Her second full collection for Spring 2010 has preserved that guiding principle, thus explaining a first foray into evening. “I have four weddings next year,” she said last night at a dinner in her honor hosted by Olivia Palermo and half-brother Peter Davis at the as-yet-unopened East Side Social Club. (It’s the new venture from Employees Only and Macao Trading Company restaurateur Billy Gilroy, with Patrick McMullan as a partner.) Still, the gown in question—a bright one-shoulder column—is cut in a jersey that Mortimer Gaghan says can be thrown in the bottom of a suitcase and worn with the ease of one of her printed T-shirt dresses. “I want black-tie that costs less than $500,” she proclaimed. Mortimer Gaghan’s progress from informal provider of clothing to her chic coterie of pals to full-fledged designer appears to be moving steadily forward. In addition to creating her own patterns and original prints, she’s considering showing during New York fashion week in February—emphasis on considering. “I’m designing the collection as if I’m showing, but we’ll see,” she said. Still, we did distinctly hear the words “Bryant Park” tossed around. Amid guests like Carlos de Souza and Ali Wise, Mortimer Gaghan’s fellow young designer Timo Weiland reported that he and partner Allen Eckstein will likely be showing their menswear in Paris this January. And aspiring designer Ally Hilfiger cautiously mentioned her plans for the capsule Fall 2010 debut of her label Alexandria. We couldn’t help flashing back to our obsession with Hilfiger’s addictive reality show Rich Girls, which now (particularly in the presence of Palermo) seems cannily prescient. Would she ever consider another? “No way,” she said, underlining the sentiment with a vigorous shake of the head.
