In response to Marc Jacob's love of the man skirt, big department stores are weighing in on their fashion merit. Barney's says yay (they think they already carry them) but Bloomingdales is leaning towards nay. [The Cut]

Prada won't let Hermes have all the fun: the Italian label has designed their own special edition Hyundai Genesis sedan. To be unveiled at the 2009 Seoul Motor show, details on the car's bells and whistles are still under wraps, but we're expecting supple leather, wood trim and a hefty price tag. [Yosax]

Antonia Marras, who already designs Kenzo's women's RTW line, has now been given creative control over the label's menswear line and accessories. Marras’ promotion marks Kenzo’s first headline men’s designer in nearly
a decade; the men’s collection had been in the hands of its
design studio since 2001, when Roy Krejberg exited the brand. [DNR]
