Paltrow and Kors have been friends for 20 years and have just decided to work together to introduce a Christmas collection for Paltrow’s website, goop.com. Paltrow says she loves Michael Kors clothes and thought that it would be fun to put a spin on some of her favorite vintage Kors pieces. The Christmas collection will include pieces such as capes, peacoats, and many accessories. I am very excited for this collection from one of my favorite designers and one of my favorite actresses!

Nov. 2 marked the first sale day of Kate Moss’s last collection for the British-based fashion retailer Topshop, according to Harper’s Bazaar. Moss has been designing for the brand since 2007, and this fourteenth and final collection includes bohemian-rock dresses and toppers that mirror her own iconic personal style.
Topshop will also be releasing “Kate Iconic,” a capsule collection that includes the ten most popular pieces taken from all of her collections. To see more photos of the collection, visit harpersbazaar.com.
Following in the footsteps of H&M, Target, and J.C Penney, Macy’s is about to sell its first designer collaboration in their stores. The first collection will be designed by Kinder Aggugini, a designer who is a rising star in London, yet relatively unknown to the U.S. (his designs can only be found in New York and Ikram in Chicago). Aggugini was attracted to Macy’s idea of a line that looked off the runway but was still affordable.
The collection, debuting in February, will be priced between $50 and $300 and sold in 250 Macy’s stores. Aggugini’s designs are described as a marriage between Chanel and Sid Vicious, and the collection will include pieces such as silk shorts, cardigans, sleek military jackets, tailored leather jackets, and much more. “The idea is to give it a chic look that feels sexy and edgy, and best of all, you can afford it.” says Aggugini.

Daily Front Row released today that Susan Posen, acting CEO and mother of Zac Posen, will be leaving the company as a result of the company hiring a new CEO. Susan Davidson, also CEO of Scoop NYC, was appointed the position last month, though this is a recent decision by Mrs. Posen to leave the company.
“The company is now poised for a new phase of growth, and I have decided it is time to step aside from my current role as acting CEO and pursue other interests,” Mrs. Posen said in an email to WWD. She continued, “I’m pleased to welcome Susan Davidson who has joined us as CEO. I look forward to their growth and success.” Mrs. Posen will, however, become the chair of the board for Zac Posen.
In other news about the young designer, speculations have been made that he will return to New York to host his Fall 2011 show as a result of mediocre reviews of his Spring 2011 collection that he controversially hosted in Paris in the Westin ballroom, where Yves Saint Laurent historically presented his couture collections.
