The men's shows in Paris ended yesterday and we're still in a fashion flurry.  Word on the rue is that Galliano's show was not to be missed...for whatever reason. [The Cut]

Photographer Nick Night got out his address book to hit up some of his fabulous designer friends for their "talents" in the deejay booth.  He'll feature some big names (Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Naomi Campbell among others) to spin live on his website, Showstudio.com, starting July 9th.  The thought of Naomi Campbell with an EP in her hand is a scary thought.  Heads could literally roll.

Prada had skirts for men last Spring; this season we've already seen man clutches and man wedges; and now, the latest feminine trend to show in Europe? Man leggings.  And I always thought menswear set the trends for womenswear.  Lindsey Lohan must be so excited. [The Cut]

Kanye West was seen around Paris with a mystery fashion friend in tow.  Who could he be?  A female presence has been noticeably absent in Kanye's life, and if the boy finally did finally pick up the bat for the other team, let's hope it's not this guy. [The Cut]

Speaking of Mr. West, he's now reportedly working on his own shoe line with Louis Vuitton, which will be followed by a womenswear line this fall.  Kanye, baby, we're all waiting for you outside that big fashion closet you so resiliently reside in. [Fashionista]

Thom Browne and Brooks Brothers have extended their deal to keep Mr. Browne on as a guest designer until at least 2011 for the Brooks Brothers Black Fleece collection.  He's also expected to reveal plans for a freestanding Black Fleece store in NYC's Greenwich Village.  Wall Streeters now have three more years to look a little bit cooler.
