Style Scoop: BFA Awards, Louis Vuitton in Miami, and Karl’s Rolex

In Paris or Munich? Drop by one of the Karl Lagerfeld stores to pick up the Kaiser’s latest customization: a 19,000 euro, matte black Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss with Uncle Karl’s profile at 7 o’clock.

So who won at last night’s British Fashion Awards? Christopher Kane made out big as Womenswear Designer of the Year; Miuccia Prada took home top honors for International Designer; Kate Moss was honored for her 25 years in the industry (talk about staying power – she has a face and body that just won’t quit – see Playboy for proof); Burberry took home two honors for menswear and designer brand; JW Anderson took home the prize for new establishment; Nicholas Kirkwood was named Accessories Designer of the Year – for the third year in a row; and One Direction’s Harry Styles was recognized by Vodafone for embodying the spirit of London in style. I guess he’s named aptly.

Unfortunate news for internet shoppers – the Supreme Court has ruled to uphold New York’s internet tax… meaning your purchases from Amazon and and other online retailers aren’t exempt any longer. This evens the playing field for brick-and-mortar stores, so it’ll be good for business… just maybe not so much for the shopper.

Part of Versace is up for sale, up to a 20% stake. The sale would make some of those involved billionairesnot including Donatella, surprisingly.

Louis Vuitton is set to unveil “a house by the shore” during Design Miami. The house was conceived in 1934, but hadn’t been built ’til now.
