This fall expect a music inspired scent from Burberry called Burberry the Beat for Men. Creative Director Christopher Baily notes "art, design, fashion, music — they all feed off each other and inspire
each other. So I sat with the perfumers and gave them a ton of music." We're speculating The Go Go's was on loop during said sit-down. Kids got the beat, yeah. [WWD]

Marc Jacobs, who's been candid about his addictive personality, can add another vice to his list -- himself. He has a new tattoo every week; he spends
hours in the bathroom primping; he works out non-stop. He claims in a
new profile in The New Yorker, that he is "a perfect being in a perfect world." And we certainly do appreciate the reminder. [Gawker

New deets on the Phillips de Pury auction of jewelry worn by hip-hop stars like 50 Cent,
Missy Elliott, Notorious B.I.G. and  Diddy:
Claimed as "glittering cultural artifacts woven into hip hop's colorful legacy," the auction will take place on October 1, and, yeah, we're expecting the crowd to be appropriately crunk (wouldn't you have to be to buy this stuff?). [The Cut]

Craiglist is now the place for breaking fashion news! Known far and wide as a haven for used furniture, a good internship, your next great apartment and, on occasion, a one night stand,  if this post indicates anything, it would appear that American Apparel is venturing into footwear.
