small bites.


casey affleck looks amazing on the cover of another man’s fall/winter issue. i love the type treatment and the black and white photography.


remember todd oldham? he’s now the design director for old navy. in addition to working on the creative direction of the brand, he will design a line under the todd oldham name sold exclusively at old navy stores. in a quote, dawn robertson, old navy president said “Todd will partner with our EVP Product, Doug Howe, and the creative team to deliver a fashion viewpoint at value that will set Old Navy apart from its competitors.” thank god!! old navy has turned into crap in recent years, copying everyone from mike&chris to anna sui. patrick robinson and now todd oldham…go gap!!

ungaro’s designer peter dundas resigned from the house months ago, so who will succeed him? rumours are flying that its brit jonathan saunders, after ungaro owner asim abdullah was spotted in the front row at the designer’s london show. the house has admitted to contacting former chloé designer phoebe philo about the creative director position.

one designer not leaving anytime soon is stefano pilati, who signed a multiyear deal to remain at ysl. his name was recently batted around as a replacement for valentino, who announced his retirement a few weeks ago.
