Oscar de la Renta is the latest designer to collaborate with an e-tailer on a capsule collection. The Couture Council Lifetime Achievement award winner is teaming with The Outnet on an exclusive 24-piece range set to launch February 26th. The collection consists of already-developed patterns and fabrics from previous de la Renta collections: “We have things around here that are underutilized — [such as] 40 years of patterns, fabrics and artwork that a lot of people spent time on,” explained CEO Alex Bolden: “We thought, perhaps we can put something together in a way that is new, that doesn’t require as much development time and in an exclusive way.” The collection will be less expensive than the label’s mainline offerings, with prices ranging from $395 to $1,295.

• Is John Galliano suing Dior? It looks like it. Just this morning, WWD tweeted, “John Galliano attends a Paris court hearing into his suit against former employer Christian Dior Couture.” A couple months ago it was reported that the designer was hitting back his former employer with an $18.85 million lawsuit, but such claims were never confirmed. But if this tweet is true, it looks like Galliano might actually be looking to collect damages. Um, Get money? (Fashionista)
