The snowball effect has swept up one of our favorite designers: After being named creative director for Bill Blass, and getting a fast-selling lipstick from Lancome, Peter Som may get a big cash infusion from Lord and Taylor. The Wall Street Journal says the store's owners want a stake in the company. If the deal goes through, it marks the second young brand this year to get a big fashion investor (Proenza got its own payment from Valentino's parent company this Spring). It also hints at Lord & Taylor's emerging strategy to pair with high fashion labels and turn around their image - remember, these are the people who got Vogue's Lauren Davis for their fall ad campaign. We'll be watching Peter's front row this season, searching for the Lord & Taylor team - though really, anyone at Fashion Week who isn't Daria becomes a blur by day two...
