The week's top stories in fashion news.
John Galliano is ready to stop and smell the roses. The designer has kept a pretty low profile since his three-week stint at Oscar de la Renta last year, but this week a spokesperson confirmed Galliano has quietly been working on projects with Russian perfume retailer L'Etoile, which has over 750 stores throughout the country.

Moschino will show menswear in London for the first time this summer. Slated for June 16, the show marks the first menswear collection by its new creative director Jeremy Scott. If we're making predictions based on shows for Scott's eponymous label (characterized by raunchy fun and eyefuls of semi-nudity), then we'd expect no fewer than 10 prints and seven different neon colors on the runway.

Google is finally delivering the one thing no online search could deliver: the public release of Google Glass (for around $1,500 a pop). (Mashable)
It's not all soccer and sweaty torsos over at the Abercrombie headquarters. After a 77% profit decline in 2013, Michael Jeffries, the brand's beleaguered CEO, took a whopping 72% pay cut. To put that in perspective, he's making $2.4 million, down from a high of $48 mil in 2011. (Fashionista)
Fashion is doomed, according to one of its heavyweight influencers. Brendan Babenzian, creative director ofSupreme, sat down with Bysuchandsuch magazine for a video interview. The clip kicks off with a rather grim opener: "Style is one thing, but fashion is a disaster…it's almost sad to me." (High Snobiety)
