Style Scoop: Tom Ford Moves to Tinseltown, Louis Vuitton Gets Editorial, and Target Tries Wool


Tom Ford has called London Fashion Week home since 2011, but it looks like the designer's September 15 showing of his Spring 2015 collection was also his last in the UK. Ford's taking his runway show some 5,000 miles away to Los Angeles come February, announcing today that his Fall 2015 line will be shown in Southern California on the first day of London Fashion Week. But how will guests make his show, and the ones being put on in the traditional venues across the pond, you ask? No idea–we'll just have to wait and see how Ford's big move pans out. [Fashionista]

From purses to publications–that's the direction Louis Vuitton is going in. The French luxury leather line will distribute a biannual in-house magazine called The Book to select recipients starting this month. The 126-page glossy, which features stunning imagery, exclusive interviews, and fascinating features surrounding the brand, features Yorgo Tloupas as its art director, LV's artistic director, Nicolas Ghesquière as the template creator, and Sylvia Jorif, a contributor to French Elle, as editor.

Carven's creative director Guillaume Henry may be leaving the line he brought back to life and heading to Nina Ricci. Having relaunched the former couture house five years ago, Henry would be a skilled successor for Ricci's Peter Copping, who is rumored to be going to Oscar de la Renta. But for now, it's all speculation…merely whispers amidst the style scene. Only time will tell who will be going where, and what it'll mean for these luxury brands. []

In another switch type story circulating the fashion industry, Valérie Toranian has left her position as editorial director of French Elle. The change in editorial leadership comes as a result of the major restructuring currently underway at the French media group, Lagardère. Francoise-Marie Santucci, the former editor in chief at Next magazine, assumed Toranian's role this week.
