• It looks like Target and Neiman Marcus aren’t the only retailers set to offer a multi-designer holiday capsule collection this year. eBay has announced that it, too will be releasing a seasonal collaboration with some of fashion’s most noted designers. Chris Benz, Billy Reid (who also designed for the Target/Neiman Marcus capsule), Tibi, Ruffian, Fallon, Jonathan Adler, and Steven Alan will all contribute to this collection, due out November 12th. Prices will range from $50-$100, so there will probably be some great options for the fashion nerd on your shopping list. (Racked)

Hedi Slimane has already made some very noticeable changes to Yves Saint Laurent Paris, most notably in the name of the house. But Grazia reports that the creative director let the possibility of a YSL return to couture slip in an e-mail interview with Vogue Paris: “Haute couture is a legitimate subject for Yves Saint Laurent and could resume one day, the priority today is to revamp and redeploy the luxury ready-to-wear” One day, one day!

Ralph Lauren might not have manufactured Team USA’s Olympic Opening Ceremony uniforms here in the States, but at least we’ll soon see some Olympians in American-made red, white, and blue outfits. The New York Post reports the Russian Olympic team has been in talks with American Apparel since 2011, negotiating a deal for the brand to produce their uniforms for 2014. CEO Dov Charney told The Post“[Russian Olympic team representatives] said they didn’t want anything that was made in China. It’s not just for the uniforms — it’s also the merchandise.Fashionista contacted a rep from American Apparel, who told them that Charney has offered to help Ralph Lauren re-produce the current Team USA uniforms: “American Apparel could start working on uniforms today and have them in London within 7 days.” Do you think Lauren should take Charney up on his offer?

    That Gaga ad is horrid! It suppose to be about he perfume and its off the the side. WTF! Ralph should take AA up on that offer.

  2. Danielle says:

    I love the ad for gaga, one. Two, those uniforms definitely need to be remade.

    Although I am a huge Vogue magazine fanatic to me it seems like a conflict of interest that Tabitha Simmons in nominated. Shes very talented, no doubt, but she works for the magazine! Thats like Anna Wintour being nominated for the prize!
