Why Is The Most Buzzed-About Show On The Milan Calendar Not On The Milan Calendar?


Most of Europe is out on summer holiday right now, but that doesn’t mean planning for the upcoming fashion weeks isn’t already in full force. The Camera della Moda has released its September fashion week calendar for Milan and, according to a report published by La Repubblica and cited by WWD, Jil Sander is not on it. The designer (pictured), who announced her return to the helm of her namesake label back in February, will reportedly do two independent shows this season instead. When? That’s the million-euro question at the moment. At present, most shows in Milan are crowded into the few days between September 19 and 23, out of fear that buyers and editors will head to Paris before the official end of the Italian shows on the 25th.

For 101 years, WWD has been at the forefront of fashion news. Today, our sister publication at Fairchild Fashion Media announced a new move to extend its coverage to readers around the globe—the WWD iPad edition.

What does this mean for WWD disciples? Enhanced article views, slideshows with extra images not available in the paper (meaning more McQueen and Balenciaga to gush over), and a live “Eye” section news feed, viewable directly from your seat at the Marc Jacobs show.

WWD App for the iPad is available on the Apple App Store. The app is free for existing print or online WWD subscribers and $169 for the bundled WWD subscription.

YSL Speaks To Raf Rumors


After an International Herald Tribune article yesterday suggested Raf Simons would replace Stefano Pilati at Yves Saint Laurent, the French label released a statement today that said the rumors are “unfounded.” YSL also confirmed Pilati is hard at work on the upcoming YSL runway show. WWD notes, however, that it is understood that the designer’s contract with the house ends in March 2012 and he has yet to sign a renewal.

WWD On What To Wear At 100


Over the course of a century in a print, Women’s Wear Daily has had given a ton to the designers it covers. And for its centennial celebration, those designers are giving back—and doing a turn for charity, no less. Starting tomorrow at 11:59 p.m., the WWD@100 Auction launches online, featuring exclusive, one-of-a-kind items sold to benefit the good cause of each house’s choosing. Got a free wall in your apartment? Try John Galliano’s 10′-wide mural (top), inspired by his Fall ’10 Dior couture collection (approx. value $15,000, benefitting the Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Foundation). Worn out that Motorcycle bag? There’s Nicolas Ghesquière’s re-imagined “Papier” in hand-painted python (above left, approx. value $2,761.70—sticklers for precision over at Balenciaga!—benefitting AMFAR). And if you’ve got an occasion, there are dresses, coats, and bags from Armani, Burberry, Calvin, Dolce, Donna, Lanvin (above right) and many, many more. The only downside? The virtual gavel won’t fall in time to wear your newly-gotten gains to the paper’s gala celebration tomorrow night.

The online auction takes place at from 11:59 p.m. on November 2 through November 18.

Scott In The Suds, Lacroix At The Mint, DVF At Claridges, And More…


Are soap operas the new side project? Following James Franco’s star turn on General Hospital—part of an elaborate art piece we still don’t entirely understand—designer Jeremy Scott is making his daytime debut today on The Young and the Restless (pictured). He plays (no great stretch) a designer. [Hint Mag]

Christian Lacroix’s new gig: artistic adviser to the French Mint?! Strange but true—and his first project is designing medals celebrating marriage and PACs (the French equivalent of civil unions). We can’t help but hope that while he’s kicking around the Mint, he can pocket a few extra euros to get his line going again. [WWD]

DVF’s rooms at London’s Claridge’s hotel, revealed! We were hoping for wrap-dress curtains, but we’ll take bold, graphic-print headboards. [T]

And happy 100th birthday, Women’s Wear Daily. You don’t look a day over 65. [Fashionista]
