Sportswear mogul Nike announced a few months ago in Beijing the upcoming debut of their new shoe line, Nike Sportswear (original, we know).  Images of the shoes have hit their website.  Yawn. [The Cut]

Who wasn't obsessed with the somewhat trashy, coked-out CK One ads from the 90s featuring everyone's favorite bad girl model, Kate Moss?  Well, rumors are swirling that CK wants to revitalize the fragrance and the ads with none other than Agnyess Deyn!  Tensions are certainly brewing between these two, and I advise Agyness to watch her back; that Kate Moss may be, like, 40, but she's scrappy.

Heidi Klum is back in da Haus.  Project Runway Season 6 has begun its casting process, so if you think you've got the sewing chops to impress Mrs. Seal, Nina and Michael, get your kits ready. [Seenon.com]

Derek Lam sold out, and we are thankful for it.  The American designer has sold a huge stake to Labelux, a Vienna-based luxury-goods holding company.  With that sort of backing, one can expect branding to grow to a Marc Jacobs level; and with that kind of exposure we can cross our manicured fingers for a menswear line in the near future!

I find it very hard to resist a man wearing cuff links.  And those designed by New York based Meg Cohen are just as sexy, if not a little rakish.  [Material Interest]
