The day's top five stories in fashion news.

To commemorate, Banana Republic will release a third blockbuster capsule collection inspired by the show, which hits stores February 27. Check out sketches of some of the looks, pictured above.

Men's market week is winding down in New York, and WWD has a pretty solid recap of what went down at the trade shows. Project went in a slightly new direction. Capsule was all about revived heritage brands, and MRket featured nearly one hundred new brands. (WWD)

Menswear up-and-comer Todd Snyder is taking a break from suits and tailoring to work on a collaborative collection with the heritage sportswear brand, Champion. Goodbye baggy "C" logo sweatshirts, and hello slim styles, suede details, and classic varsity hues. (Complex)
