Marco Zanini is rumored to have been asked to leave his position as creative director for Halston. The brand, which was popular in the seventies thanks to its charismatic disco-loving namesake, has suffered since 1990 when Halston passed away. With Harvey Weinstein backing the brand, Tamara Mellon as the business executive (she founded Jimmy Choo), and Rachel Zoe as stylist with an agenda, you'd think this one would last. Guess not.
Maybe Mellon isn't the golden child after all? Or maybe Choo can't survive without her? Or maybe it's just a really horrendous sample sale (hey, even Uniqlo has them). Either way, we hear that the Jimmy Choo sample sale in New York this week was downright offensive.
Weyves Couture, a London-based firm that pairs fashion designers with yacht owners has asked Thierry Mulger to design the interior of a motorboat that holds several speed records. The boat is also currently for sale.
Topshop's Fall 08 campaign will be set with the backdrop of London's trains and buses--albeit cleaned up and reupholstered. The idea behind the campaign is to capture the 'movers and shakers' that are the Topshop customer (curious) while also bragging to Britain that they're going to set up a sparkling new home over in America (dangerous?).
