Next week, the Versace for H&M runway show is set to go off in New York. It was already going to be a grand affair, but WWD reports today that it’s got even more star power than we thought—Prince and Nicki Minaj are both performing after the show. In the spirit of collaborations, maybe they will do a duet? [WWD]

Prince just announced two impromptu concerts at the Grand Palais this Sunday. WWD wonders if Karl Lagerfeld and Stefano Pilati will come see his act, since he was front-row at theirs. We wonder if Prince will be wearing anything from either collection. Can’t you see him rocking a strawberry-printed milkmaid dress? [WWD]

Go to work safe. Haruyama Trading Co. has come up with the season’s must-have garment: the swine flu suit. At $850, it’s a steal, even if, as The Cut points out, it doesn’t cover your mouth, nose, or eyes. But you’re coated with chemicals, so who cares? [The Cut]
Karl Lagerfeld knows how to put on a show. This morning at Chanel, it was a real barnstormer in the Grand Palais, with a set inspired by Marie Antoinette’s peasant-y playground Le Petit Trianon, that featured a giant haystack and barn, of course branded with a huge Chanel logo. Taking it all in were Prince, Claudia Schiffer, and Clémence Poésy. The show began with a crowing rooster, and surprise guest Lily Allen and her band popped out of the floor to play her hit “Not Fair,” but perhaps not quite live. Heidi Mount was the first girl out. Though she didn’t read the set as the backyard of Versailles but rather her native Utah. Oh, and she got to hold a real live pig. There was holding and more when Freja Beha Erichsen and Lara Stone went for the proverbial roll in the hay with Lagerfeld darling Baptiste Giabiconi. No one was allowed to use their iPhones or BlackBerrys, so they had to save all their hoedown humor for later. UPDATE: We’ve got the whole show up. Click here to take in the countryside couture.
We didn’t think so. But that’s just one of many illuminating tidbits you’ll find in our video of the week, which features Burch and Surface to Air’s Gordon Hull—an intriguing duo if ever there was one—shopping for show tunes at West Village record store Rebel Rebel. There’s drama: Gordy likes the Upsetters while Tory likes Janis Joplin. But rest easy, in the end they both love a little Kanye. Click here to see the whole clip.
