Rihanna is making the rounds among fashion mags in New York this week to promote the launch of her Umbrella line for Totes. Come on, we all saw this coming, right? Macy's will be the exclusive retailer this Spring. [WWD]

Isaac Mizrahi joins Liz Claiborne as Creative Director. Now he can hang out with Tim Gunn and spread water cooler gossip. Hopefully, he won't grab any of his coworkers breasts. [Fashionista]

Miuccia Prada has it out for men! Following the presentation of her latest collection for men (see photo), debuted in Milan on Sunday, Prada told International Herald Tribune fashion editor Suzy Menkes, that "the collection was revenge on men for the social and sartorial contortions they impose on women." I'm not sure that's the best way to sell clothes but the surreal double-collars are visible pseudo-jock straps were certainly new territory. [NY Times]
