The Unlikely Bedfellows: How well do Oscar de la Renta and new sidekick John Galliano play together? Galliano has been a special guest in de la Renta’s studio for three weeks now, and many expect the disgraced former Dior designer to influence last-minute tweaks and styling decisions chez Oscar. Sources even tell WWD that a double-runway bow may be in store — a photo-op sure to set the Instagram-sphere on fire.
The Designers Gone Digital: More so than ever, designers are opting out of a traditional runway show or presentation and choosing a digital format instead. For fall, count Rachel Roy, Peter Som, Pierre Balmain and Alexandre Plokhov among them. Not only does the format allow them to show their looks to a wider, global audience, but buyers and editors can see the clothes from the comfort of their own homes. Enjoy your breakfast.
