Apparently the NYT thinks that chipped nails are the newest beauty trend. We're pretty sure they were just short on content but they dug up enough quotes to justify it. Including, "It’s not easy on your nails when you’re BlackBerrying all the time." from the VP of marketing at Lancome. Is 'blackberry' a verb?

The sales are hitting New York just a little bit earlier than Memorial Day this year. Luxury stores are slashing prices, which is unprecedented for some of them, in order to compete with department store's sales and the recession. We feel like every sentence we write these days has 'and the recession' tacked onto the end of it. We're going to call this article, "WWD Scoops Sample Sales For Fashionistas And The Recession".

Victoria's Secret is launching a sportswear line called VSX. Likened to Ralph Lauren's sports label, RLX, the new brand will live in its own freestanding stores in addition to being carried at Victoria's Secret locations. VSX will carry, "sport bras, athletic pants, yoga pants, T-shirts and other merchandise." which makes it sound curiously similar to Victoria's Secret proper but we're guessing there's some sort of American Apparel-inspired slant. Juicy Couture is also suing Victoria's Secret over something involving the color pink.

Yohji Yamamoto has been awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of the Arts London. St. Martins kids will have yet another name associated with their fashion degree with which to help them get ahead. Other designers given the honorary doctorate include Giorgio Armani and Rosita Missoni.
