  • Well, that’s one way to get fired: Phivos Lampros Istavrioglou (what a name), the head of international relations at French fashion brand Moncler, has been accused of one major art heist. He was arrested at JFK airport for the theft of ‘Cartel Des Don Juan Tenorio 1949,’ a $150,000 Salvador Dali painting (shown), from an Upper East Side art gallery last year. [Business Insider]
  • Race relations are always a popular topic in fashion, thanks in part to the industry’s reputation for being maybe just the slightest bit obtuse. At New York Fashion Week this season, critics noticed that there was less racial diversity than ever. Jezebel crunched the numbers, and here’s what they found… [Jezebel]
  • Rihanna has another collaboration to add to her roster, and it isn’t musical this time. Just a few days after her design collab with British brand River Island went down the runway, the controversial singer has announced plans to partner with MAC Cosmetics. Like, really partner — RiRi has signed on to have a hand in four distinct color lines set to launch throughout this year. I guess that’s what you get for wearing Ruby Woo almost every time you’re photographed! [Refinery29]
  • You’ll recall that John Galliano made waves in his Hasidic get-up during New York Fashion Week. Writers at Conan got in touch with the disgraced designer’s brother Joe, who actually does wear Jewish hats. Like, real Jewish hats, trimmed with bagels, dreidels, aaaaaand a circumcised banana. Yeah. Watch it! [The Cut]

  • Well, this is troubling: after Oscar de la Renta charitably allowed disgraced Dior designer John Galliano (who played a fun game of anti-Semitic dress-up just days ago) to have a hand in designing his Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, rumors abound that this could be part of the process of priming Galliano to take over for de la Renta, 80, when he retires. Ouch. [Refinery29]
  • As far as celebrities-turned-designers go, Matthew McConaughey was one of the very last guys we’d ever expect to start a menswear line… and yet JKL, inspired by his Just Keep Livin Foundation, is about to be a thing. Bizarrely, the collection will include shirts. [Huffington Post]
  • Add lingerie sales to the growing list of things that the immense, unprecedented popularity of “Fifty Shades of Grey” has helped to proliferate. Riiiiiight next to whips, chains, and Ben Wa balls. [New York Times]

Last year’s anti-Semitism scandal saw John Galliano ousted unceremoniously from both Christian Dior and his own eponymous label, but there are two sides to every story, which may have something to do with why the besmirched former creative director is now suing the fashion house for the grand sum of $18.8 million.

“Oh, this old thing? Psh. It’s Dior.John Galliano may be an anti-Semitic coot with pigtails and an ill-advised pornstache, but he is also a design hero … or villain, depending on who you ask. Regardless, I will be wearing this crustacean couture look to my next blue-tie event. Get it? Like those blue bands they use to hold the claws together? Hahahaha. Ugh. [World of Wonder]

After more than a year of speculation, a new designer has been chosen to head up Christian Dior. Raf Simons, formerly of Jil Sander, will take over the position vacated by John Galliano after the designer was fired from his role for making anti-semetic remarks in February 2011. Several designers–including Marc Jacobs, Hedi Slimane and jokingly, Kanye West–were allegedly in the running for the position. In February, Simons was fired from Jil Sander suddenly, though some believe a deal had been in the works with Dior for some time. “The first time I heard about the Dior position,” said Simons of his new appointment, “I thought, ‘This feels right.’” [NYT]
