This Week in Fashion: World's Most Powerful Designers Pose For an Instagram, Cosby Sweater Designer Wants an H&M Collab

Plus: Why John Galliano won't be showing menswear for Spring 2015, Carhartt's new book, and the results of Giorgio Armani's latest side project.

The week's top stories in fashion news.

  • WWD put up what is perhaps the most fashionable Instagram in the world Thursday afternoon when it shared a photo of all the judges for the inaugural LVMH prize. Marc Jacobs, Raf Simons, Humberto Leon (half of the force behind Opening Ceremony and Kenzo), Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci, Phoebe Philo of the women's brand Céline, Karl Lagerfeld, and Louis Vuitton's Nicholas Ghesquière all smiled for the same camera. At the same time. It's … it's a lot. (Four Pins)

  • Koos van den Akker, the man who designed the original Cosby sweater, says he'd like to do a capsule collection of the garments for H&M—especially considering how much people still like his erratic, colorful knitwear designs. "Wouldn't that be fun?" he said earlier this week, before lamenting, "But I don't know fancy people to make that happen." (The Cut)

  • John Galliano (the house, not the man) won't be showing menswear for Spring 2015. Reports speculate that this is because the label, which is led by designer Bill Gaytten, is looking for a new manufacturing partner. The one it works with now has been battling bankruptcy since late last year. (Fashionista)

  • Carhartt, the American workwear brand that was widely fetishized during the most recent recession (if you'll recall, people wanted to turn back to heritage brands, workwear, and clothing they knew could be relied upon to last more than a season or two) just landed a book deal. Rizzoli will publish the tome, to be called Carhartt: Work in Progress, next February. The date coincides with the brand's 25th anniversary. (Huh Magazine)

  • Giorgio Armani's latest project has nothing to do with suits. This week the legendary designer revealed the interiors for the Century Spire, a luxury condominium building in Century City, Philippines. The spaces look just like the stuff he sends down the runway: sleek, modern, and really expensive. (ArtInfo)
