You know an Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin photo when you see one. By fall, you’ll know a piece of Inez & Vinoodh apparel when you see it, too. The Dutch duo, who just released their second collection of fine jewelry under Pretty Much Everything, professed plans to launch a clothing line later this year. “Similar to our jewelry line,” said Van Lamsweerde, “it will include things that we feel like we’re missing.” [Style]

Looters: Chanel ain’t got time for that. Following its supermarket sweep, security at the house’s Fall 2014 fashion show confiscated Chanel brooms and Mademoiselle Privé doormats that guests stole from the elaborate set. The fruit and vegetables on display, though? All up for grabs! [Fashionista]

Atelier Pallas is the last real couture house standing.

I did not change because of our customers. We are the only one left. Everything is cut inside.” [The Daily Beast]
