Lagerfeld presented his resort collection for Chanel in Miami yesterday. He said of the season, "It's all about proportions, cuts, and volumes. There is not one line that is taken all through the collection. For cruise, you don't do that."

Jonathan Saunders has been hired as the creative director of Pollini. His first collection for the label will be this Spring 09. Saunders, apparently, has a few formulaic things going for him.
