Neiman Marcus is older than dirt—okay, 100 years young—and Prada designed a special collection to honor the milestone. Now, the true label-obsessed can get clothes and accessories with TWO brand names. [WWD]

Daniel Ou, the former style editor of the now-defunct Cargo magazine (may it rest in peace), was named director of concept development for menswear at Gap Inc. Hopefully, he'll have better luck at GAP. [Fashion Week Daily]

Chanel's Rodeo Drive flagship will look like a giant Chanel No. 5 perfume box. I love it. Oh yeah, Alec Soth and Y.Z. Kami will display their art in the store, too. [WWD]

Jay McCarroll (pictured, with Kelis) isn't happy about New York Magazine labelling him homeless, so he took his protest to the street...and pretended to be...well, homeless. [Radar]

Coke to recycle used bottles into T-shirts. Seriously. Revolve and Coca Cola are teaming up to create an eco-friendly line of clothes made of reused polyethylene terephthalate.The line launches later this month and will be called Re:volve for Coca Cola. It doesn't sound very comfortable to me. [WWD]
