No sleep till Brookyn! Looks like those grumbles from editors in February fell on deaf ears with the news that Dior is taking a cue from Alexander Wang and showing their cruise collection at the Brooklyn Navy Yard next month. The brand will be offering a round-trip, door-to-door car service for guests attending and a ferry service from Manhattan and back. All of this will likely be easier to swallow due to the time of the year and the lack of back-to-back shows. Dare we say we're actually excited about this?

Poppy and Cara Delevingne partied in Palm Springs over the weekend at an exclusive bachelorette brunch hosted by Superdry. The sisters spent the weekend at the Superdry Estate House to celebrate Poppy's upcoming nuptials to James Cook and welcomed friends Sienna Miller, Hannah Bronfman, Harley Viera-Newton, Derek Blasberg, Lily Donaldson, and Jared Leto who, uh, popped by. Nibbles were provided by Manhattan's The Wayfarer who served lobster rolls, jumbo shrimp cocktails, and beef sliders. Somewhere along the line we're sure everybody caught a show or two.

Cole Haan has been cutting its teeth at becoming a full-on lifestyle brand for the last few seasons and now with its Fall 2014 collection, the brand is expanding its lifestyle assortment even further. In addition to the accessory brand's assortment of handbags and footwear for men and women there are small leather goods, travel accessories, outerwear, sunglasses and eyewear, and even hosiery. Plus, Cole Haan is continuing to develop its "Cole Haan & Friends" program that supports third party vendors like Izola, Hook + Albert, In God We Trust, Brett Fahlgren, Daniel Wellington, and Shinola's shoe care products. "It further establishes our signature style and brand personality," said David Maddocks, Cole Haan's chief marketing officer. "These products are made by people we respect."

While partnering with other smaller brands and designers has been a model that larger fashion companies are continuing to adopt, the focus this season was on women's handbags and leather accessories for men and a return to Cole Haan's own roots. "The use of weave in both the men's and women's collections is a nod to Cole Haan's heritage," said Maddocks. As for the menswear, the Truman accessories collection will feature a backpack, duffle, messenger, and shopper bag and the Pinch Grand Penny loafer and the Glenn Chukka boot will be classic styles that evoke the iconic Cole Haan American brand personality, according to Maddocks.

The brand is also ramping up its campaign imagery with model and actress Dree Hemingway's all-American looks. Hemingway is set to appear in the brand's Fall 2014 campaign and will also serve as the brand's global ambassador. "Dree embodies an unmistakably American spirit and exemplifies both respect for tradition as well as the modern style and sensibility of her generation," said Maddocks. Hemingway will also collaborate with the brand to create a line of handbags and footwear called "Cole Haan for Dree Hemingway". Stay tuned for Fall when product begins to roll out and check out Hemingway in 2015 when she stars alongside Ben Stiller and Amanda Seyfried in While We're Young.

Roland Mouret is the latest designer to be collaborating with a major mass fashion retailer. The designer is set to launch a 25-piece capsule collection of women's apparel and accessories for Banana Republic. Expect some of Mouret's sexy form-fitting dresses and sharp tailoring in stores and online in early August. Prices for the collection will range from $49.50 to $165, which is far more affordable than his main line which retails anywhere from around $1,000 to $2,500 for dresses to around $700 for a top. The French designer previously designed a limited-edition dress line for the Gap in 2006.
