Its going to be a fall full of Rei Kawakubo thanks to her high profile collaborations. While the Third Estate has to wait till November for her collection with H&M. But her work with Louis Vuitton is making its debut next Wednesday in a temporary concept store in Tokyo designed by Rei herself. Because its not a money making venture for Vuitton supposedly (har har, though it does "quietly mark its 30th anniversary in Japan) you can only place your orders at this pop up but you will not be back to get your bags till 2009. If we were planning a trip to Tokyo anytime in the near future we might actually consider buying this "noodle" handle bag.
Reports are coming out of WWD Magic that buyers are sticking to comparatively cheaper American made lines.
J. Brand Jeans and Topshop are working together for a lower priced denim collaboration coming out November 30th. The jeans are to be named after New York neighborhoods. The skinny jean, one of J Brand's classics, is to be named the Brooklyn. We would have gone with the Williamsburg.

The Beauty Bunny has found a beauty product whose proceeds go to a cancer organization. So true, we may not be curing cancer, but we can sure help! Catwalk Queen touches on another sensitive subject: fur. How do you feel about fake fur? How do you feel about real fur? With Fall coming right around the corner, the fur debate once again becomes a hot topic. With the publicity machine, it's often difficult to hear about the fashion related books that aren't written by public figures. Worn Through offers a look at the next set of stunning and informative fashion books coming out this month. Trend de la Creme has discovered another recurring trend in fashion: the fashionable nun. You'd never see the inspiration until she points it out.
