After a short vacation, “in case you missed it” is back this week with all of the fashion news you may have missed (and believe me there’s a lot of it to take in).
1. It’s that time of year again: fall campaigns are starting to pop up in magazines everywhere and I for one can’t get enough. This week’s must-sees are Joan Smalls channeling a Sci-Fi vibe for Missoni in muted geometric prints and Edie Campbell in Alexander McQueen looking hauntingly beautiful in a series of eerie ads. Last but not least, Tom Ford pulled out all the stops for his fall campaign with a team of stars including Gigi Hadid, Natalie Westling, Ashleigh Good, and Patrick Schwarzenegger (Style.com & Fashionista).
2. While the closest most of us can come to the Met Gala is obsessively pouring over Page Six, Vogue’s own Hamish Bowles is for sure a staple at the event, and has decided to share his inside view by writing a tell-all that will focus on the exhibitions from 2001 to now. Think he’ll share any inside gossip? (WWD)
3. Move over Gwyneth, Blake Lively’s new lifestyle site has just adopted the trendy name of “Preserve” and is set to launch next week. While its main focus will be on artisans and products, our heart is set on a expose of her insane closet. Guess we’ll have to bookmark the page and check out the launch next week to find out (Jezebel).
4. If you’ve ever had major outfit envy while out in public and were too embarrassed to speak up and ask them where they got their outfit, Kate Bosworth has just the thing. The fashionista and Blue Crush babe has just launched Style Thief with founder Samantha Russ with the simple concept of “snap and steal” to find someone’s outfit. Are we the only one’s thinking that this could seriously come in handy come Fashion Week in September (Fashionista).
5. Fashion brands have been going through some major changes lately, and Marc Jacobs International is no exception with their new CEO appointment. Former CEO of Givenchy, Sebastian Suhl, will now take Bertrand Stalla Bourdillon’s coveted spot. With a resume that includes Givency, Prada, and more we think Suhl is more than cut out for his new position (Fashionista).
6. And now for perhaps the craziest news of the week: Ocala, Florida has made it punishable by law to have pants that sag low enough to see your boxers. The penalty: up to six months in jail. Teenagers everywhere, beware (Ocala.com).
