Richard Chai to design a capsule collection of womenswear for Target as part of it's GO International program. Previous participants include Proenza Schouler, Rogan, and Jovovich-Hawk. Chai's collection is due out in August, but it won't be any fun for us boys. [Fashion Week Daily]

Abercrombie & Fitch tries to give back to the community by donating $10 million to a children's hospital, but the hospital might return it (with a receipt) because of pressures from 15 organizations like the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, Parents for Ethical Marketing and several doctors who work at the hospital, claiming it sends the wrong message. Their ads and clothes are just too sexy, they say. I think it's safe to say A+F won't be posting any ads in the delivery rooms. [Fashionista]

New York Fashion Week will pack it's bags and move the tents from Bryant Park to the 10th Avenue Rail Yards after 2010. Talk about moving from the Penthouse to the Poor House. You can hear the confused fashionistas thinking "There's a 10th Avenue in Manhattan? I thought that was Jersey." Okay, so by then, the rail yards will be redeveloped into some prime real estate...maybe. [NY Daily News]

Riding high on the successful Richard Prince collaboration, Louis Vuitton is rumored to debut a new line of accessories tentatively called "Monogramouflage" (seriously!)—featuring the LV mongoram and a camouflage print designed by Takashi Murakami and our BFF Marc Jacobs—at the Brooklyn Museum of Art pop-up store on June 1st as part of the opening of Murakami's exhibit.

In other Marc Jacobs-related news, his fiancé/boyfriend Jason Preston got in a late night scuffle outside a Chelsea club on Sunday after a drunken homo threw his drink at another queen and hit a woman instead. Preston, whose chivalry scores major points with me (Go Jason!), asked the guy to apologize to the woman and  was fed a knuckle sandwich instead. The fight continued outside but Jason reports he's A.O.K. [Page Six]
