Karl Lagerfeld played with contrasting colors for his Fendi resort, revisiting a few elements from past collections. The fresh orchids that embellished some of his fur pieces on his fall runway were worked here as large deconstructed patterns on silk pants, cotton tops, patchwork leather biker jackets and a silk maxidress trimmed with colorful Lycra.
Lagerfeld also brought back a graffitilike print from 1988, using it for a relaxed silk and mesh top with matching jogging pants. For other looks, Lagerfeld looked to Pop Art with bright and graphic pieces, notably a pair of tangerine-hued culottes with matching top in white polyurethane polka dots.
Phoebe Philo is returning to fashion.
WWD reported yesterday that the English designer is planning a new collection and has been interviewing designers.
One of the most acclaimed designers of her generation, Philo made her name during a 10-year tenure at Celine. Season after season, she minted low-key modernist clothing and handbags and built an intensely loyal fan base.
Philo said the above quote in an exclusive interview when she joined @celine in 2008.

The Hervé L. Leroux label is returning to ready-to-wear.
The revived line will be presented to buyers during Paris Fashion Week and is designed by the late couturier’s sister Jocelyne Caudroy.
"Hervé left a fantastic heritage [of sketches and unfinished works]. When the project was suggested, I thought of Virginie Viard and how she had worked alongside Karl Lagerfeld. I accepted because this way, I can preserve the way Hervé worked. To continue, when given the opportunity, is important because this heritage lives within us,” Caudroy said.
