Designers are falling into two very different camps these days. On the one side, we've got those pulling out of the tents for Fashion Week (Vera), consolidating stores (Marc), and focusing on accessories (Olivier). On the other, we've got those moving from womenswear to menswear (Roland, Gareth, Carlos, Decarnin, Ferré), womenswear to kidswear (Gaultier) and now, from menswear into womenswear. Tim Hamilton will be showing his first women's collection at Paris Fashion Week this March. The designer told Style.com that the capsule collection, built in Japan and Italy, is inspired by his mother's, "avant-garde, all-black look and mid-century postmodernism." So, very New York? Also? Shoes! He hasn't decided if he'll sell them or not, but the more shoes in the world, the better.
