upgrade or downgrade?


two looks from isaac mizrahi’s s/s 08 semicouture collection

tim gunn isn’t wasting any time ramping up liz claiborne and remaking it from a 80s mainstay to a modern day powerhouse. after naming john bartlett men’s design director yesterday, today the brand named isaac mizrahi creative director of womenswear. in his new role, mizrahi will oversee design and marketing for womens clothing, accessories and licenses. his name will not be attached to the lines, and no word on the impact this will have on his own line for target, his shoe and handbag collection, or his “semicouture” label sold at bergdorf goodman and neiman marcus.
