MOSS TO TALK TO LONDON COPS: Kate Moss is expected to return to London to be interviewed by the city's Metropolitan Police. A spokesman for Storm modeling agency confirmed on Sunday that Moss and her lawyers were "making arrangements" for her to be interviewed by the police, in connection with her alleged cocaine abuse.
Last September, the Daily Mirror published photos of Moss apparently snorting cocaine in a recording studio. Following the scandal, Moss lost a string of lucrative modeling contracts, including arrangements with H&M and Burberry, and left England to seek treatment at The Meadows clinic in Arizona. She has not returned to England since the scandal erupted.
After the Mirror story was published, the Metropolitan Police began investigating the case, trying to discover who could have supplied Moss with cocaine. This month, the police said they wanted to question Moss. "We wish for the investigation to take its course," the police said in a statement issued in January. "She would be dealt with very fairly and proportionately."
EARLY-BIRD SPECIAL: Note to fashion editors — don't stay out too late on the Wednesday of fashion week. According to industry sources, Proenza Schouler is moving its show from the scheduled afternoon slot on Monday, Feb.6, to Thursday, Feb. 9, at 9 a.m. Designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are said to be experiencing difficulties with fabric deliveries, prompting the duo to reschedule the show to allow for some extra time. The designers could not be reached for comment on Sunday.
It wouldn't be the only scheduling shift. Badgley Mischka is returning to the Bryant Park tents this season and has secured the 8 p.m. slot on Sunday, Feb.5, which has traditionally been Luca Luca's time. Luca Luca is now scheduled to show on Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 1 p.m.
A GUY THING: Lanvin is gearing up for the relaunch of its men's wear. The Paris house, which under artistic director Alber Elbaz has become one of the hottest French labels for women, will stage a runway show to feature its new men's direction on Jan. 30, during the Paris men's season. The venue is under wraps, as the house wants to keep it exclusive. Paul Mather, the former Vogue Hommes International fashion director who is heading the project, said the new Lanvin look would reflect a similar spirit as Elbaz's women's designs. "We want to take it to that level," he said.HEART ON HIS SLEEVE: Marc Jacobs is lending his design expertise to the Human Rights Campaign, the U.S.'s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender lobbying organization. The designer has created a colorful T-shirt that is now available at www.hrc.org/shop. All proceeds from the $38 jersey cotton item will benefit HRC's efforts to stop discrimination against GLBT Americans. HRC expects to sell 3,500 shirts — in a variety of colors — this spring. Joe Solmonese, HRC's president, said, "We are proud to be working with Marc Jacobs to make a bold fashion statement with a deeper meaning."
There'll be no rest for those headed to Europe for men's, as Paris just closed the gap with Milan.
