Gianfranco Ferré Cleans House: Gianfranco Ferré’s new owners, Paris Group, sacked creative directors Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi. No word yet on who the replacement(s) will be. An anonymous retailer told WWD that there wasn’t enough to buy and that evening wear was too “fairy-tale-like.” {WWD, subscription required} Tom Ford Portrayed as a Frequently Driven Used Car: Boy, if Tom Ford was pissed that Mr.Porter employed some guy named Tom Ford to send emails, imagine how livid he’s going to be when he sees himself in Dale Wurfel’s used car ad. Ad copy: “You know you’re not the first, but do you really care?” Better hire a lawyer, Mr.Wurfel. {copyranter} Karl Lagerfeld Is Making a Fragrance That Smells Like Books: Karl apparently loves books so much that he wants us to smell like one. His new fragrance, Paper Passion, will contain a “fatty nuance” that supposedly evokes paper. Definitely check out Bella Sugar’s slideshow showcasing the fact that Karl wasn’t the first one to think of the books-as-scent idea. {BellaSugar}
