The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Authorities Still Searching for Missing Vittorio Missoni, Tom Ford is Having a ‘Regular’ Fashion Show This Season, and Kate Lanphear Joins T Magazine Staff
By The Fashion Bomb Staff


• The search for Vittorio Missoni continues, with members of the Missoni clan joining in on efforts to locate the missing mogul. Vittorio’s sister Angela said her brother, Luca, is even participating in the search:  “He is a pilot and he is also flying over the area now,” she said in a statement. Authorities have ruled out the possibility of kidnapping. We hope Vittorio and his plane mates are sitting unscathed somewhere on an island! (WWD)

Bloomingdale‘s is taking advantage of the barely-tapped consumer goldmine that is the Chinese New Year. The retailer is releasing special limited edition items to celebrate the holiday, to ultimately accumulate as many coins as possible in the lull after the holiday season. Bloomies has teamed with several noted brands to create merchandise for the pop-up, including J Brand, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Kenneth Jay Lane. The items will be sold exculsively at a few participating Bloomingdale’s locations. (WWD)

Rachel Zoe will lend her styling expertise to ShoeDazzle, as the footwear e-tailer’s chief stylist.  (WWD)

 

• Fashion plebes, rejoice: Tom Ford is planning on having a normal fashion show this season in London! The designer is stepping into the digital age, eschewing his usual private showings to a select few members of the press, instead opting for a real life runway show where members from all walks of the fashion community can film shaky final walk footage with their iPads. Ford told Times Magainze that the show is “going to be for 500 to 1,000 people. Photographers, bloggers – a regular, real show.” Why the sudden change of heart? Ford realized that is is not fiscally prudent to keep the masses waiting: “The company has jumped and I can no longer service the stores by not showing. So I have to love it and embrace it.”  It’s about time! (Telegraph)

• Former ELLE Style Director Kate Lanphear has snagged a new gig at the New York Times’ T Magazine. The editrix announced yesterday that she will join the publiciation under the same title. (NYTComm)

    Tom Ford is all kinds of fine. That is all.

    I’m excited to see Tom doing a regular show. We haven’t seen his true showmanship since the days of Gucci, should be interesting.

    I wonder what’s going on @ T (or Elle for that matter) that made Kate leave her post? Hhhmmm.. I’ll be keeping my ears open for new developments.

    Goodness gracious Tom Ford is 12 kinds of fine!
