- Carine Roitfeld is rebounding nicely post-Vogue with a gig at Barneys. The luxury retailer has commissioned Roitfeld to act as guest editor, muse, and stylist for their Fall 2011 season. Look for Carine’s personal touch on the Barneys catalogue, fall campaign, their store windows as well as a short film with her at the focus. At this very moment Carine is ripping up the latest issue of Vogue Paris while putting on an impromptu number to “Everything’s coming up Roitfeld!” [Fashionologie]

FASHION SCRAMBLE: Carine Muses for Barneys + American Apparels New Hire + Franca Blames Web for Anorexia

- American Apparel has hired a new retail executive in Marty Staff to dig them out of the clusterfuck known as their crippling debt. With a reported net loss of $67 million over the first nine months of 2010, they’ll need a very large shovel. Perhaps CEO Dov Charney can start funneling some money from his secret sex slave ring to boost revenue. I’m not saying break up the sex slave ring, god forbid, but this is the age of synergy. A sex slave sweat shop, perhaps? [The Cut]

- Vogue Italia‘s EIC, Franca Sozzani wags her bony little finger at pro–anorexia websites for propagating eating disorders in young girls while defending  designers who altruistically “discard those [models] who are visibly suffering from nutritional problems.” Well, as long as they’re discarded…. [Vogue.it]

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester at fashionindie.com
