David Bowie is the man—Louis Vuitton’s man. And all he has to do to woo Arizona Muse is sing “I’d Rather Be High” during a Victorian-themed ball. [Louis Vuitton]

Crocs’ latest collaboration is a Boo-tiful one that’s more sweet than scary. The “comfy and colorful” shoe brand is now selling Jibbitz shoe charms made in the likeness of the world’s cutest dog. Awwww! [Glamour]

Lenny Kravtiz is expanding his design empire with the help of Fred Segal. The brand is introducing its first-ever collaboration, Fred Segal x Kravitz Design with a 10-piece capsule including a $100,000 limited-edition motorcycle; it will launch in early 2014. [GLAM Inbox]

The sky is the limit for Maison Kitsuné Spring 2014. The brand tapped Sky Ferreira to star in its latest, new wave-inspired ads, shot by Henrik Purienne. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Kate Spade is taking over Juicy Couture’s old digs. In the words of Fifth & Pacific Co. executive William McComb, whose company is recently sold the SoCal brand, “with respect to the Juicy store fleet, we anticipate converting a number of Juicy stores to Lucky Brand and Kate Spade New York.” [Racked]

Speaking of new designer spaces, Givenchy will be opening 26 stores next year, including one in uptown Manhattan. [WWD]

Tis the season of giving and Echo Design is on board with a helping hand. For every piece of cold-weather clothing sold between November 11 and December 1, the brand will donate two comparable items to people in need with Fashion Delivers.

Oh, the irony! Abercrombie & Fitch is letting go of its exclusionary ideals to launch—wait for it—plus-sized clothing. The change of heart comes following a dip in sales and the shuttering of its Gilly Hicks underwear stores in the UK. [Vogue UK]
