Phoebe Philo has just been named the Creative Director of Celine. Chloé fans are given permission to jump up and down. This apparently signifies that Bernard Arnault cares about all the brands in his stable at LVMH. Pantone has released its Spring 2009 Colors. It involves fancy names and numbers. Sephora is adding a little bit of the social media to its website with product reviews. We also hope that Thom Brown becomes a brand juggernaut of epic proportions. Fashion Week is getting more and more expensive for designers. Consumers are also buying less. This is a poor combination. But even if the above suggests that ostentation is not in expensive designer phones are bigger than ever! This only reminds us we had our Black Berry stolen and must face 24 hours before the new one arrives. PANIC. But apparently we are all partying and living it up at Fashion Week. To which we say REALLY? Don't you have to work?
