>> Peter Jensen, Jeremy Scott Coming to New York Fashion Week —Although many designers (including Burberry, Matthew Williamson, and Jonathan Saunders) opted to show in London again for Fall 2010 after returning last season, Peter Jensen, who has historically shown in London, is headed for New York to partake in MAC at Milk Studios' second season. And Jeremy Scott — who showed in London last season and Paris the season before — announced yesterday that he will be returning to New York Fashion Week, also at MAC at Milk, for Fall 2010.

>> Peter Jensen Switching from Runway to Presentation for Spring 2010 —Peter Jensen showed his first resort collection ever in June, and he says he "had so much fun with resort, sharing a cup of tea with my guests and giving everyone a chance to understand my brand and the clothes close up," that he's decided to do a presentation again for Spring 2010 instead of his usual runway show. The designer plans to incorporate film, photography, and some top-secret elements, including the involvement of a New York-based collaborator. [Vogue UK]
It doesn't really get much snazzier than these patent Peter Jensen for Topshop shoes. We might be alone on this but the grey patent loafer is our favorite, it just screams 'snazzy old man' and that kind of makes us want to wear them. All priced at $210 and entirely shippable to the United States we say go for it. Check out our video from the Spring 09 Peter Jensen show as part of London Fashion Week. Inspired by Jodi Foster, it will only encourage a patent loafer purchase.
Last night we arrived at the Peter Jensen show in Westminster to a few strands of hanging lights in a warehouse and endless bottles of champagne. It was a beautiful, paired down space, large enough to house the slew of Jensen fans that have become increasingly dedicated to him as the seasons have gone on. This season, Jensen showed a collection inspired by American actress Jodie Foster at different stages of her career. Namely, as she was seen (and dressed) in Freaky Friday, The Hotel Hampshire, The Accused, and The Silence Of The Lambs. The collection, in all its various stages, was boyish, smart, and sexy--much like the actress herself (not the mention align with Jensen's aesthetic). The only thing that deserves a mention is that a collection that pivots on some kind of obsession with Jodie Foster may give more than a few people a bad taste in their mouths. A little discomfort at the very least. And that's all we'll say about that because we actually think that Peter Jensen is a noteworthy up and comer and this collection, like his others, was truly above the fray. Opening Ceremony, here we come.
