Kris Van Assche tapped Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld to photograph his first Dior Homme advertising campaign, further severing the ties between Dior Homme and Hedi Slimane—who used to photograph the collection in addition to his design duties. Divorce can be so cruel. [WWD]

Is Topshop moving to NYC? Rumor has it that England's cheap-chic answer to H&M (and purveyor's of Kate Moss' line) will sign a lease for a Manhattan store in December. Yay? [Fashionista]

Dai Fujiwara, creative director of Issey Miyake, loves his Dyson vacuum cleaner so much that he designed a stage set with the cyclone/wind tunnel idea in mind. Now that is a runway presentation that I would love to see. How many waifish models will withstand the winds and not topple over? It's like Survivor meets America's Next Top Model! [WWD]

Did Coach rip off Hermés' horse and carriage logo? Signs point to yes! [Fashionista]

Each week, it seems like another celebrity announces their plans to hop into the fashion world to produce a line of mediocre clothes. The latest to join the fun? Kanye West, who desribes his line, "Pastel," as "classic with a touch of Pop Art." Could Kanye please say something that doesn't sound like a purse flying out of his mouth? The man isn't helping his hetero street cred when he says things like that. [WWD]
