>> I have been on the lookout for a good peeptoe flat ever since I saw the ones Christian Louboutin did for Derek Lam. Nine West has graciously provided us with an option ($75) -- or many, I should say, since the Rebekah comes in black patent, red patent, white patent, tan leather, and a couple of colors of satin. My personal favorite is the lipstick red version, because I can combine two things I've been looking for -- red shoes and peeptoe flats -- into one.
(There's no direct link to the shoe, so just go to ninewest.com and search "Rebekah.")
>> First Jil Sander, now Helmut Lang -- looks like Prada's plans of taking over the world aren't happening quite as soon as we thought. Prada announced yesterday that it agreed to sell Helmut Lang to a Japanese company. Unfortunately, it looks like designer and namesake for the company Helmut Lang won't be returning -- fingers are pointing to Cloak designer Alexandre Plohkov to take up the job as creative director.
