This week, Gianni Versace S.p.A. announced that it was cutting loose young British designer Christopher Kane from the helm of its second line, Versus. Signora Versace is not seeking to replace him, per se.
It's been the year of hysteria-inducing designer/high street collaborations. Louise Gray's beautiful range for Brora was an indisputable highpoint. Similarly Jean Paul Gaultier for La Perla was top of the Christmas list. But other unions warrant less praise.
