    • If you’re a “fake-a$$ punk,” Moises de la Renta does not want you at his father’s runway show.

    A look from Bespoken Spring 2012

    • Details magazine has reserved space in the New York Public Library at Lincoln Center to host menswear shows during Fashion Week. The magazine hopes to raise awareness about talented menswear designers during a week when quite frankly, little attention is paid to men’s fashion. In fact, out of the four main cities that host Fashion Week, New York is the only one that does not hold a week of menswear collections. The “Details Collections Gallery” will host runway shows from Bespoken, John Bartlett, Mark McNairy, and more from September 8-11th.  (WWD)

    Abercrombie & Fitch has experienced a significant loss in sales this year, which experts attribute to the retailer’s cookie cutter image and overpriced wares. In the first half of the fiscal year, sales went down 2.5 percent, and the brand just closed 71 stores in the US, with plans to shutter another 180 by 2015. Sales for the retailer have been slipping since 2008. The recession and this generation of teenagers’s individualistic sartorial proclivities have caused A&F’s usual customers to look to retailers like H&M and American Eagle who offer more fashion forward wares at much lower prices. Those shirtless models with chiseled, square jaws, washboard abs, and boyish charm don’t seem to be cutting it anymore. (Business Week)

    Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted in an airport carrying Hedi Slimane‘s first handbag for YSL ( or SLP, QRSTUV, WXYZ…?). The tote was custom made for Ms. Paltrow, and comes in a very on-trend shade of mink. Could this be a sign of what to expect from Slimane’s debut collection for the brand? (Grazia)
