Som is said to have been inspired to leave after the company canceled the September show due to financial woes. Executives had been trying to dissuade Som from leaving as they feared it would detract investors from buying the company, which is currently owned by NexCen Brands, Inc. NexCen bought Bill Blass two years ago for $54.6 million, however, their current offers hover somewhere around $28 million. Looks like Som isn't the only leaving the nest. After three years as creative director for Pucci, Matthew Williamson might be moving on to other things. Namely, his own growing business. Williamson succeeded Christian Lacroix when he became creative director, and for his replacement Emilio Pucci is said to be looking within the company. The V&A Museum in London is hosting an exhibition on the relationship between sportswear and ready to wear, called Fashion V Sport, with examples of cross-pollination from both categories. Stella McCartney, Dries van Noten, and Sonia Rykiel are among the designers included in the exhibition. What, no Juicy Couture? In other exhibition news (looks like everything comes in pairs today), Commes des Garcon has arranged a retrospective in China where gallery walls are adorned with images from printed material. Rather than mannequins, Kawakubo called up everything from magazine ads to invitation cards. She said of the retrospective, "In a way, seeing a dress on a mannequin is less powerful than seeing [printed matter] blown up.” .
