John Varvatos says he's considering moving his show to Milan. "New York Fashion Week is not in step, time-wise, with men’s markets at
all," he said. [The Cut]

Is Chace Crawford next in line to become the new face of Versace?
  We're hearing word that he could be poised to steal the next ad campaign from the flowing-haired Patrick Dempsey. [Perez Hilton]

The Diesel store on Carnaby street in London's Soho district has been wrapped with padding, PVC and shiny black material.  And why? To give it a particularly S&M look to promote their Dark Desires line. Matt Wingfield, the artist who conceptualized the display, said, “We are trying to push the idea of display and how a brand can seek attention." You don't say. [Creative Review]

Project Runway is not only moving to Lifetime next season, but also to Los Angeles, where Heidi Klum promises a lot of upgrades. Among said improvements? Kick-ass sewing machines, which means no more gratuitous fights between designers about so-and-so screwing up the crappy Parson's equipment the last time they used it.  I mean, it's Lifetime, so they've gotta take it down a notch with all the drama. [People]
