Erdem Moralioglu presented a collection of romantic, highly decorated dresses and separates for fall 2009. Floral prints with titles like Callie, Narciss and Autumn look fresh against fall's blacks and grays and—at very reasonable price points—are a great way to add a pop of color into your winter wardrobe. We especially love the classic travel vanity case made in partnership with Globe Trotter.

The Guardian recently interviewed Kate Moss on her fourth collection for Topshop—a holiday line for which she was inspired by the prints and patterns of the orient. During the interview in her Topshop office, Moss sipped white wine and modeled her favorite piece from the collection, a jacquard evening coat with silver buttons.
In addition to a silk kimonos, chinoiserie style tops, and dresses with mandarin collars, the collection includes bed jackets, silk pajamas, printed slips, lace shorts and sheer teddys. As the Guardian reported:
Last year Moss had her perfect pair of pyjamas made in Hong Kong, but her boyfriend stole them ("Jamie lived in that pyjama top all summer") so she's included a silk copy in the new range, which also features a selection of luxe lingerie. "And I've test-run all the underwear, too. My boyfriend likes the lot. It's all very sexy, but not nasty-sexy, glamorous-sexy. Not vulgar. I love the lounging suit, and I do like a pyjama. I wore a pair out as eveningwear in New York once, and there was a massive snowstorm. We couldn't get a cab, so I had to walk home in them. It was freezing, but they did look good."

>> Simon Fuller Now Shopping for a New York Modeling Agency? —Simon Fuller has continously been creeping into the fashion industry since he began backing Roland Mouret in 2006. Since, he has worked with Victoria Beckham to launch her industry-acclaimed eponymous collection, partnered with Claudia Schiffer to represent her name, image, and brand rights, and just a couple of months ago he took a majority stake in London's Storm agency, home to the likes of Kate Moss and Jourdan Dunn. Now, word is going around that Fuller is "scanning the New York [modeling agency] market for 'opportunities'" — a New York counterpart to his latest London acquisition? As The Imagist points out, "that would represent a whole new ideal of management that could pose huge challenges for some established players in the trade." [TI]
Anna Wintour (along with Mayor Bloomberg and the CFDA) officially announced the return of Fashion's Night Out yesterday with Wintour saying she was "absolutely bowled over by the response" to her 2009 open-to-all street party/fashion event.
The focus for 2010 will be to attract new participants (there were over 800 stores open late during the 2009 event) and to expand the festivities beyond the U.S. and into other international cities where Vogue is published—specifically London, Milan, Berlin, Athens, Madrid, Moscow, Taipei, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, New Delhi, and Beijing.
Pulling off such a major city-wide initiative is the main reason Wintour was recently named one of the 12 most powerful people in New York by New York magazine, and we're pretty sure she'll prove Fashion's Night Out can be bigger and better in 2010.
