Our favorite designer crush, Adam Lippes, is going to start blogging on his website. We caught wind that there was a position open at the site and we're wondering if this new hire hasn't convinced the team that blogging is the way to go. Either way, we are super excited to read Adam's fashion musings, alongside other members from his team. The blogging starts Monday.

Jil Sander might be for sale which, in our experience, is just a politically correct way of saying it is for sale. Change Capital Partners, who acquired the company from Prada in 2006, is tired of waiting for critical acclaim to catch up with profits. Since CCP has acquired the brand, however, profits have gone from decreasing annually to breaking even and some say the next leg of the journey need be started by a acquisition.

We just died and went to swimwear heaven. Hayden Harnett, who we've reported is launching swimwear and footwear for Spring 09, has released some images. After all of those orange bodies and belly button rings we saw during Miami swim, we have to say, this is our idea of beach goddess. It comes as no surprise that a Brooklyn-based design team honed in on our discomfort with the typical swim look.

After one pair of acetate frames pushed J.Crew from WASP to hipster, the flood gates have opened. The brand, apparently, is going about selling vintage Rolex watches on their website. Refinery 29 reports that Steven Alan already did that and we're going let stew the idea that J.Crew is carving out two aesthetic spaces for themselves without having to sacrifice anything. There is the J.Crew we know via The Mall and the J.Crew we know via The Internet and these two companies, though they are one, are becoming increasingly distinct.
