• The Bag Snobs previewed Zac Posen's DHL bag and mention the fact that they have piles of Fashion Week show invites in their bags. Oh sure, rub it in! (Although I'm pretty sure I saw "Bag Snob Tina" trying to bum rush the standing room-only line at Diesel this weekend.) The bag is kinda blah but it is for charity and we're sure they will have no trouble moving all 750 of the limited edition accessories. [Bag Snobs ]
  • Ever modest when it comes to name-dropping the famous people she has met, Fashionista's Faran talks about bonding with designer Benjamin Cho over a mutual love of 'Jesus Christ, Superstar' while holed up in a basement a few months ago. She favors his "solid" new pieces over his previous, perhaps more playful, designs. [Fashionista, 3rd item]
  • We just noticed that Elle.com has a better and wider selection of designer's runway photos for Fashion Week than Style.com. We knew there was a reason we liked them better than Vogue! Other than, um, well, the fact that they're not Vogue. [ Elle.com ]
  • The Washington Post's Robin Givhan, the only Fashion Week blogger to have received a Pulitzer Prize, has covered approximately 27,000 Fashion Weeks, not that it shows: She was first through the door at the John Bartlett presentation "not because I'm special, just because I have a habit of being prompt, which, as I've mentioned countless times is an oddity in the fashion industry". On the twin oddities of PETA protesters at the spring show because Michael Kors actually employed mink in his last spring collection: "Kors has actually shown mink for spring — although he didn't this time — because in his world every season is fur season. I'm not saying that's good or bad; I'm just saying that's the reality." [Washington Post]
