• Derek Lam is adding a footwear range to his 10 Crosby Derek Lam label. Prices for the 24-piece collection will range from $295 to $575. The designer told WWD“For 10 Crosby, accessories completes the playful yet chic look of the collection. The starting point is always with perfect classics, the foundation of great style. From there I twist things up to create unexpected surprises in the collection.” Sounds (unsurprisingly) solid! I could definitely see myself slipping into those animal printed ponyhair booties!

• The Kardashians have once again found themselves in a pot of legal hot water over their forthcoming Khroma Beauty range. Last month, Beverly Hills makeup studio Chroma (with a C), complained the similar nomenclature might dilute their brand. But it doesn’t end there– Florida company Lee Tillett distributes a cosmetics line called Kroma Makeup, and sent a cease and desist letter to the Kardashians’ people back in June. But Boldface Licensing + Branding, will be darned if some already-established brand gets in the way of the Kardashians and their koins.  The Khroma (with a Kh) licensers have unleashed their goons, filing a legal complaint against Lee Tillett. Boldface argues that Tillett’s label “consists solely of a descriptive term and lacks any inherent distinctive meaning to the relevant consuming public and therefore, is conceptually weak,” whatever that means. *Sigh* is the drama worth it? Perhaps the Kardashians should consider biting the bullet and changing the name. (WWD)


Alexander Wang has reportedly been studying Balenciaga‘s archives to prepare for his new job. And not a moment too soon– the designer will show his first collection for the iconic label this coming Paris Fashion Week. (WWD)


• Here’s the first episode of “Well Dunn,” Jourdan Dunn‘s cooking show for Jay-Z‘s Life and Times YouTube Channel.
