• Those waiting to see looks from Victoria Beckham‘s contemporary ‘Victoria’ line will have to be a little patient, as the designer has postponed the show (which was supposed to happen this morning), since she and the team are still putting together the looks. According to Vogue UK, we won’t be seeing anything by ways of a collection for VVB for a few weeks. L’Wren Scott also canceled her London showing, citing production troubles as the reason for the delay. She will instead present her Fall/Winter offerings to buyers and the press at her showroom in March. (Vogue UK)


Shaquille O'Neal at Disney ABC Television Summer Press Tour

Shaquille O’Neal is delving into men’s fashion, with the release of a collection for men of all sizes. The range, aptly named “The Shaquille O’Neal Collection” is set to drop this month exclusively at Macy’s, and will include suit separates and sports coats, with prices ranging from $150 to $400. Shaq says he started the line mostly for giants large men like himself, who have a hard time finding clothes that fit: “I also was frustrated that I had to go to a Big & Tall store rather than shop with my friends at the local department or specialty store,” he said. “I originally wanted to develop a more fashion-forward menswear collection at an affordable price. Once Peerless and I developed the collection, the reaction from Macy’s was so positive that we decided to make the collection in all sizes.” (WSJ)

North West Kim Kardashian CR Fashionbook T Shirt

• No, we didn’t need another reason to envy 7-month-old North West‘s wardrobe, but Kim Kardashian is happy to give us one, or rather, four. The reality star posted a couple snaps of more designer baby threads gifted to her wee one from Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana, and Kenzo. Nori also got a T-shirt from the folks at CR Fashionbook, printed with a picture of her mom’s cover for the magazine. Not sure how I feel about that one, but the rest sure is cute.

Chanel will show their Cruise collection in Dubai this year, where editors and members of the press can expect to be very, very hot. The barometer average temperature around May 13th, (the date of the show), is 100 degrees. (WWD)
