One large departure and two new flagships.

Not wanting to bore you with the details once more, but fashion month is done and dusted. In its wake it’s left rumours aplenty, a large fill of which will come from Marc Jacobs’ departure from Louis Vuitton, noted below.

Also happening in the here and now, Tiger of Sweden and Lyle & Scott have both just opened up new stores in central London. Happy shopping.


As previously mentioned, Marc Jacobs this week left French luxury label Louis Vuitton, at which he held the post of Creative Director for 16 years.

Bernard Arnault, LVMH chairman and CEO, confirmed the news following Jacobs’ final show for the house on Wednesday. The 10am event saw a magnificent set that included elements from many past seasons.

The intention is for Jacobs and his long-term business partner Robert Duffy, to focus exclusively on the Marc Jacobs label.


Elsewhere, last night saw the launch of Lyle & Scott’s new flagship store on the corner of Carnaby Street in London’s Soho.

The shop’s interior was created in partnership with creative agency Brinkworth, and features wooden shelving and industrial pillars.

The heritage brand will celebrate 140 years of trading in 2014, and the space was created with this in mind as a platform to celebrate what it has accomplished. Further, international, stores are planned for next year.


Tiger of Sweden also celebrated a new store on Thursday night, with their retail space in Piccadilly.

The tailoring brand – founded in the Swedish town of Uddesvalla in 1903 – boasted a performance from the band Peace, while also on the night was a large scale projection of the video below.

Said film was directed by Tabitha Denholm and features the artist Phoebe Collings-James, writer Harriet Verney and the stylist, Ellie Grace Cumming.
