1. Tom Ford was named chairman of the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
The designer succeeds Diane Von Furstenberg, after her 13-year tenure.

 

 

2. J.W. Anderson courted the American heartland.
Following Moschino's coyly tacky The Price is Right-themed fall/winter 2019 runway, Anderson's latest handbag campaign took the form of a low production value TV infomercial. Is fashion, like politics, going the populist route?

 

 

3. Protesters frustrated by economic inequity looted luxury boutiques along the Paris's Champs-Elysées.
Graffiti found at the looting sites signalled intense outrage at the extravagance of the wealthy.

 

 

4. Tim Walker's solo exhibition at the V&A — set to be the most extensive so far for the photographer — was announced.
‘Tim Walker: Wonderful Things’ will be Walker's third major showcase.

 

 

5. Seoul Fashion Week's fall/winter 2019 edition opened.
Stay tuned for our runway coverage, but in the meantime, check out our street style despatch.

 

 

6. Old-timey glamour found an eloquent new champion.
Edward Meadham — formerly of Meadham Kirchoff — brilliantly opined that craft, classical beauty and specificity in fashion were far from dead in a thoughtful, must-read op-ed.

 

 

7. Moncler's new, two-story Asia Pacific flagship opened its doors at Marina Bay Sands.
Shopping alpine wear in sunny, tropical Singapore — you truly can have it all.

 

 In case you missed it, catch up on last week.
