Vera Wang has an important date tonight in Chelsea, where she'll gather to show fashion editors her first diffusion line for Kohl's. We're anxious to see what she's got, though we know it will be closer to her own style - black, elegant, draped - then to her latest runway collection (at left), which broke so many barriers that everyone got dizzy. Though it won't create the same frenzy as Proenza for Target, it may offer some sophisticated options to older women on budgets, and that's exciting. Meanwhile in Europe, YSL is testing the waters with a capsule collection called Edition 24. Created by YSL head designer Stefano Pilati, the line is called "moderately priced." We think that translates to "still really expensive, like Miu Miu," but we're still excited to see it.

Vera Wang and Arthur Becker File for Separation--What Does This Mean for the Future of the Vera Wang Label?
While all eyes are on Katie Holmes's and Tom Cruise's divorce, another power couple has quietly parted ways. Vera Wang and her long-time husband and business partner Arthur Becker have filed for separation, WWD is reporting. Wang declined to comment, however her company’s president, Mario Grauso, issued a statement saying that the couple "mutually and amicably agreed to separate," and that "they remain devoted parents to their two daughters." Becker, who married Wang in 1989, is known to have advised the designer closely in her business pursuits, helping to take the Vera Wang label from a one shop bridal boutique to a global multimillion-dollar company.
