Well, that was fast. Just yesterday it was announced that Peter Dundas would be leaving his post at Emilio Pucci to return to helm Roberto Cavalli‘s label and now, Pucci has announced the Norwegian designer’s successor. MSGM designer Massimo Giorgetti has been tapped as creative director for the house of Pucci, a job he will start in April.

Giorgetti will continue to create for the MSGM brand and with this new gig, so he will have significantly more projects on his plate. He is expected to send his debut collection for Pucci down the runway come the Spring 2016 shows, which is also when Peter Dundas will show his latest effort for Roberto Cavalli. We expect plenty of buzz around both shows and can’t wait to see what Giorgetti will bring to the Pucci label.

Sure, Fashion Month just ended, but with all these changes, we’re starting to get really excited for the upcoming season.

Is Marc by Marc Jacobs Folding?

Rumor has it that Marc Jacobs could be downsizing soon. Sources say that Marc by Marc Jacobs, the younger sister to the designer’s eponymous brand, will be absorbed into the main Marc Jacobs label. The hope is to diversify the Marc Jacobs brand, offering a bigger range of items under one name. Of course, nothing has been confirmed by Marc Jacobs and we don’t know yet how these changes would affect the structure of the company or the current designers of Marc by Marc Jacobs, Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier.

According to WWD, the house of Marc Jacobs is looking to “unify all products with a clarity of voice and aesthetic, and ultimately, to expand the product offerings,” which some speculate is part of the label’s plan in preparing for a future public offering. 

Marc Jacobs has yet to come out and officially announce the absorption, but we wager all eyes will be on the brand in the next few weeks to see if there is any truth to the rumors.

Australian actress Rose Byrne stepped out on Wednesday for the New York premiere of Danny Collins, which her boyfie, Bobby Cannavale, stars in, outshining bae in a moody-feminine piece by Lanvin.

The 35-year-old beauty looked to the luxe label’s Spring 2015 collection for the get-up, opting for a navy drop-waist dress with metallic panelling to take the piece from day to night. (more…)

Andreja Pejić Steals the Show at Josh Goot’s VAMFF Runway

All eyes were on transgender beauty Andreja Pejić last night, as she closed Josh Goot’s Autumn 2015 showcase for the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF).

The Bosnian-born, Australian-raised model stole the limelight in a sleek strapless dress, featuring a sexy front split which showed some leg. Even though other pieces in the collection boasted beautiful, bright florals in cobalt blue, aubergine, forest green, mustard yellow and more, Andreja didn’t need all the bells and whistles to be noticed by the crowd.

Her fierce looks backed by an amazing story, including her gender reassignment surgery last year, was enough to captivate the audience, regardless of the other big-name models like Montana Cox, Samantha Harris and Ollie Henderson who also walked the runway. (more…)

69,000 People Do Not Want Kanye West Playing at Glastonbury

After years of groveling, Kanye West has finally gotten at least a few members of the fashion set to give him all the pats on the head he’s been begging for. All it took was a little sucking up. But as he gains fans in the fashion world, he’s losing fans in the music world.

The rapper is scheduled to headline the Glastonbury Festival this summer alongside the Foo Fighters and Lionel Richie (random, but OK), but not everyone is pleased about it. A petition is calling for the rapper to be removed from the Glastonbury lineup. 

“Kanye West is an insult to music fans all over the world,” the petition, authored by Neil Lonsdale reads. “We spend hundreds of pounds to attend Glasto, and by doing so, expect a certain level of entertainment.” The petition references Yeezy’s awards show outbursts over musicians winning awards over some of his personal friends (like Beyoncé), and asks the rapper to open up and choke down a taste of his on medicine. “Kanye has been very outspoken on his views on music… he should listen to his own advice and pass his headline slot on to someone deserving! Let’s prevent this musical injustice now!”

The petition is already over 69,000 signatures strong and quickly nearing its 75,000 goal. Londsdale told NME he initially started the petition as a joke, but it looks like people are genuinely feeling his sentiments since it has already garnered so many signatures. As for the rest of the singers? Well, they just aren’t into Kanye’s attitude in general. 

Several supporters of the petition offered reasons why they were signing.”Kanye West represents all that is bad with the current cult of celebrity – he gains notoriety by acting like a complete tool – he disrespects all other musical forms except his own (and maybe Beyoncé),” one signer wrote. “The more people book him and listen to him will only encourage him and his ilk to line their pockets by acting like tools.”

Perhaps the most succinct and response to the petition: “He’s a gay fish.”

We doubt that Glastonbury will change their decision to have Mr. West take the stage. Besides, this overwhelming response is just ripe for an onstage monologue from Yeezy on how festival goers don’t respect his artistry. Who would want to miss that? Or, better yet, a possible encore of this: 

But whether you’re for or against Kanye, his performance will be an interesting one indeed.
