After a pretty dramatic 2008, which ended in the announcement that Peter Som would not be showing at this Fashion Week, shots for his collection for Fall 09 have thankfully hit Style.com anyway. Some of the looks are a little kookier than expected, but that's probably the best way to make everyone appreciate your return anyway. In other designer resurrection news, the details of Mayle's closure have emerged: Expect Jane Mayle's Elizabeth Street shop to close on February 28th, as originally planned, but for her brief come-back to be available via a pop-up shop just one week later on March 6th (not April, as previously reported). Her last line will be kind of like a refurbished greatest hits, including pieces from her Fall 03 collection, a personal favorite of hers. And of course, if you're dying for more designers back-from-the-almost-dead news, tune in Wednesday for glittery reportage of Richie Rich!
