Truman Says

We hate rumors (except for Fleetwood Mac's album Rumours -- that's a whole different story), but this one strikes us as noteworthy, should it be true. Page Six ran a story today revealing that J. Crew's president and creative director is in the midst of a marital break-up. Lyons is credited for galvanizing and re-inventing J.

Remember in the classic '90s cinema classic Clueless that ditzy heroine Cher had a to-die-for closet featuring a rotating conveyer belt to display her lovely goods? If you don't, the folks over at Ben Sherman sure seem to. A recent remodel to their Carnaby Street store in London now boasts a similar contraption that hints at the fabulous shirting within, and passerbys can press buttons to see their favorite items.

It's easy to be jealous of designer Zac Posen. While today may be his 31st birthday, the wunderkind has already spent a decade as one of the fashion industry's reigning darlings. The New York-born and raised dressmaker is known around town for his effervescent personality, preternatural hand at construction, and opulently glamorous aesthetic. Add to that a circle of fabulous socialites as friends and its easy to see how Posen's name landed on the lips of buyers, editors, and PYTs just after graduation.

That being said, one short-term solution is to knit these lil' guys sweaters so they don't fuss with their plumage. This solution, however, yields the adorable image, like the one above.

Thanks to visits downtown with his psychologist of 25-years, Barneys' Ambassador-at-Large Simon Doonan has come face-to-face with the denizens of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Doonan, who may have a pretty penny or two, still doesn't constitute one of the elite enemy known as the 1% but he does enjoy the drama that has unfolded, and has taken a particular interest in the strange and wonderful street styles being displayed at the energetic demonstrations outside his shrink's window.
