LONDON — Burberry had a lot to say Wednesday about pre-Christmas trading, its plans to go big on handbags and its new strategy of selling top-to-toe looks, but there was one particular question that was burning on the lips of financial analysts, a question that Burberry couldn’t answer: Who will replace Christopher Bailey?
Burberry’s chief creative officer and erstwhile chief executive officer, Bailey will show his final collection in February during London Fashion Week and step down from the board in March, although he plans to work with the brand until the end of the year. The new ceo, Marco Gobbetti, has already begun looking for Bailey’s successor, although that could take a while and he’s not planning to comment on speculation in the meantime.
Thought bike shorts were going anywhere? Think again. The sporty trend was seen on the spring runways of Fendi, Area, Roberto Cavalli, and Stella McCartney to name some. Tap the link in bio to see what other major trends to expect this coming spring. #wwdfashion

In a custom Dior dress fit for a supermodel, @karliekloss married her longtime love, @joshuakushner, in upstate New York yesterday evening. No word yet on honeymoon plans or, more interesting, the guest list. Kloss’ new sister-in-law, Ivanka Trump, did however share her congratulations when they couple became engaged in the summer. “So, so happy for you and Josh! I feel blessed to have you as a sister (!!!) Karlie and look forward to the happy memories we will create together as a family!” wrote Trump on Instagram.
