What's the fastest way to silently say 'I'm rich" to the droves of philistines that sully your upper-class air?  Why, throw a Bottega Veneta bag over your shoulder, of course!  The label was placed atop the Luxury Institute's just-released list of designer
brands accorded the highest social status by affluent consumers, so give that LV tote a rest. [WWD]

The floral motif that has been seeping into men's fashion is literally from moving from head to toe, with Opening Ceremony now offering floral patterned Nike high-tops.  No doubt we'll be seeing these in the hood any day now. [Fashionista]

Just enough to whet our appetites for its early July debut, here's a sneak peak of Steven Alan's new line for Urban Outfitters, Lark & Wolff. [Material Interest]

In case you haven't heard, October brings the American debut of U.K. ├╝berbrand, Topman, which premiere at the opening of the Topshop/Topman flagship store in New York City in October.  If you have just heard, we'll give you a minute...[DNR]

We're still recovering from the first round of Emporio Armani ads featuring a shirtless and bulging David Beckham, but that doesn't mean we're not ready for round two of shameless eye candy.  Five more ads of Mr. Becks flaunting his goods will get their first look in the San Francisco Macy's on Wednesday, with the campaign appearing on emporioarmani.com from June 23 and making its
print magazine debut in the August edition of Vanity Fair.  Plane ticket bought, website bookmarked, and subscriptions renewed. [WWD]
