Victoria’s Secret, one of the most recognizable and widely-worn lingerie brands, released a high-end selection of bras and panties called the Victoria’s Secret Designer Collection, targeting those members of the bourgeoisie who won’t be seen in the same knickers as Ananda from around the way.

Christian Louboutin headed back to court yesterday on the arm of Ms. Diane Von Furstenberg over the YSL red sole debacle. He presented his appeal, saying his signature, Chinese-red lacquered soles are iconic to his brand, and though YSL has been making monochromatic shoes since the 1970s, his trademark must be protected. The two could settle, but why do that when you can draw out these boring exciting proceedings? (WWD)

• The only sort of wine you should be spilling on your Chanel tweed blazer is Chateau Rauzan-Segla, straight from the Chanel winery you didn’t know existed. The famed design house is selling the 2009 vintage for a hefty $129, complete with a label designed by Mr. Karl Lagerfeld. The wine is available for pre-order, if you’re interested in drinking something other than Franzia.
