The day's top five stories in fashion news.
⋅ All ye who worship at the altar of Lanvin, rejoice! The luxury brand has opened its official New York men's flagship at 807 Madison Avenue, just down the block from its women's shop. You'll be able to grab anything from its popular suede trainers to made-to-measure suiting. (Style.com)
⋅ We were surprised to learn that Matthew McConaughey, a celebrity known better for taking his clothes off (à la Magic Mike and that nude bongo-playing incident, to name just two), is launching, of all things, a clothing line. JKL (Just Keep Livin) will go on sale exclusively at Dillard's next month; 10 percent of the proceeds will go to charity. (Racked)
⋅ Starting next week, Dior Homme will bring its ultra-luxe bespoke service to its flagship on 57th Street in Manhattan. Guests will be attended to in a luxe VIP lounge upstairs and can select from 200 suit fabrics and 160 shirt fabrics hand-selected by Kris Van Assche. (WWD)
⋅ Urban bikers, say goodbye to slouchy T-shirts and destroyed denim. Remember that H&M x Brick Lane Bikes collaboration we told you about back in December? The smart collection of bikewear for the urban gentleman is finally going on sale. Expect stretchy sport coats and weather-resistant outerwear. (Telegraph)
⋅ Even after making many amends and showing a fabulous guest-designed collection for Oscar de la Renta this week, John Galliano can't seem to shake his antisemitic indiscretion from two years ago. The New York Post, which will sensationalize a dog crossing the street if it means selling more papers, has chosen to criticize Galliano's choice of hat on a recent walk through New York.
