News bites: May 16

Sorry the site was down for almost 10 hours this morning/last night. That was rather naughty of my host! Anyway… here’s a round up of what is making fashion news at the moment:

  • A fashion writer wanted to kill the editor in chief of Vogue. Well I’m sure people have fantastised about killing Anna Wintour, but not quite to same extent as Peter Braunstein did.
  • Karl Lagerfeld is certainly knows how to build up to a fashion show. Even though it’s only the Chanel cruise collection, aside from holding it at Santa Monica Airport, Karl has managed to secure a private jet to show his designs from, as well as signing Claudia Schiffer on to front his advertising campaign!
  • And while we like Kate Moss’ clothes… do we want her shaggy messy do? Someone out there thinks so because we’ll be seeing a Kate Moss hair care range soon.
