Rumor update: The latest from Hedi Slimane is that he is not starting his own line, a fact that his lawyer has confirmed (via Twitter, of course). However, the latest round of rumors have placed the former Saint Laurent designer at Chanel. What would Karl Lagerfeld think? via Telegraph.
Selfie in the sun: Versace is giving back to all of its loyal fans, and selfies are involved. Anyone who snaps a selfie with the Greca Star style in Versace stores, or regrams a selfie of Donatella Versace from the label’s many Instagram accounts, will be entered to win. via WWD.
Go for the Gucci: Label of the moment, Gucci, is continuing along with their current momentum by unveiling an exclusive collection for e-tailer Net-A-Porter.
