Hello world! Onlysix more days in the beloved Luton, it's really a sad thing. I'm so accustomed to everything, especially the time zone :) But school starts in eighteen days, and I've already got five Primark bags!

Kanye West has long been outspoken about his plan to break into the fashion business. This summer, rumors have abounded that the musician was working as a lowly intern at the Gap. “He’s not my intern!” laughed Gap designer Patrick Robinson this morning, as he launched his 1969 Premium Jeans Collection. “He’s a friend of mine, and he just likes to see what we do.

Evan Rachel Wood stood out in her breezy Gucci dress.
Our favorite September cover so far? None other than the one found on Seventeen’s subscription copies. The magazine is turning 65 this month, and to appropriately toast, editor Ann Shoket and publisher Jayne Jamison trotted out an archival cover wrap from the September 1944 issue. (The coverline? “Young fashions & beauty, movies & music, ideas & people.”) There may be a lesson here…
Other than, say, Robert Pattinson, the Chic Report award for most meticulously documented summer is looking like it’s going to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. Photo op in Portofino with Eva Mendes, check. Party with Jennifer Lopez and Naomi Campbell in Capri, check. Now, pictures are popping up (figure 1, 2) of the D&G duo frolicking in Italy’s Aeolian Islands with Giovanna Battaglia and Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld. All this is making Chic wonder: could there be a pap on the Dolce & Gabbana payroll?

and the stylings of an undefined designer.
