The week's top stories in fashion news.
⋅ Prada continues to woo famous faces to market its menswear. Last winter, the company sent screen stars Gary Oldman and Adrien Brody down the fall 2012 catwalk. This season, the house tapped Django star Christoph Waltz to furrow his brow in a fall campaign shot by David Sims and costarring Skyfall's Ben Whishaw (you know him better as Bond's quartermaster "Q") and Ezra Miller (the bipolar misanthrope from We Need to Talk About Kevin).

⋅ >Rag & Bone designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright built a five-store retail empire in New York City, but they've always had a soft spot for their London hometown (no surprise that Kate Moss starred in their latest campaign). Now the fellas are headed across the pond to participate in London Collections: Men, a three-day showcase of menswear spanning everything from Paul Smith to the Cambridge Company. Considering the duo honed their skills with tailors from Kentucky rather than from Savile Row, we can hardly blame Metro for dubbing the brand an "American interloper." (Metro)
⋅ For those in search of the perfect floral print: Snoop through the Hill-Side's latest collaboration with Gitman Vintage—a series of short-sleeve oxfords rendered in lightweight calico and linen. Still unsure how to wear them? See Complex's animated-GIF look books. (Complex)
⋅ More fall-campaign news: Dior has anointed actor-model-musician-producer (and former Twilight star) Robert Pattinson to be the face of its latest Homme fragrance campaign, gushing that "he has proven the scope of his acting talents by choosing films as varied as Remember Me and Water for Elephants." Of course, we all know what's really going on here: Raf Simons is clearly Team Edward. (USA)
