Next season's buzz (too soon?) will surely revolve around Marios Schwab's debut collection for Halston. But there's another Brit with exciting news -- Richard Nicoll's just been appointed Cerruti's women's wear designer. The old Italian house, founded by Nino Cerruti (who's still very much alive) in the late 50s (women's came ten years later), was helmed by both Armani and Narciso Rodriguez before filing for bankruptcy. Nicoll told WWD that the brand, "has a strong DNA, and the brand speaks to what I do — elegant tailoring." He's signed on to do three seasons, the first will show in Paris this February, and he'll continue to show his eponymous collection in London. Everyone's always mumbling about when, someday, all the young Brits will eventually helm every major fashion house and each season, a step is taken in that direction.
