Fast Fashion Friday: Our weekly style scoop
Another day, another designer saying crazy things. This time, it’s Pucci’s Peter Dundas, who told
Harper’s Bazaar that he commutes from Paris to Florence every day by air (which takes an hour and a half). “I own 20 to 25 pieces of taxidermy; between whole deers, boar heads, croc heads, plus the birds there are quite a few. I also collect insects. A lot of the animals have been relinquished to the basement.” Cue PETA and climate change protesters in 3…2…1… [
In news that surprises absolutely no one, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention report that the flesh-eating carp used in fish pedicures—where fishies eat the dead skin on your feet—could spread infections like HIV and Hepatitis C.

Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist fame—you know, the guy who once told the Globe and Mail that he’s “good at the sex”—gave another revealing interview to GQ, and he didn’t hold back. Remember when Dolce & Gabbana put bloggers in the front row, on their own little podiums, with laptops? “They got a humongous amount of press,” Schuman fumes. “Look we brought the bloggers in and gave them the front row. Look at the dancing-monkey bloggers! I could barely bring myself to sit down….Like, Oh, look at the cute bloggers! Isn’t that cute! Are they playing Angry Birds? When you’ve got Ron Frasch behind you going, “I spent two f—ing million dollars on D&G’s last collection, and I’m sitting here? For these little schmucks?” [GQ]
More style scoop after the jump!
Hedi Slimane knows how to create hype.

This means his big public debut will be during Paris Fashion Week in September. Which also means people will be jockeying for tickets like crazed Twilight fans at the midnight screening of Breaking Dawn: Part 2. [Grazia]
