Alexander Wang Gets Gritty... Miu Miu in Shanghai...

Alexander Wang will launch his fall ready-to-wear promotional video with a series of nighttime projections around New York tonight.

VIDEO TAKEDOWN: On Tuesday, the blogosphere went into overdrive after a video that allegedly featured Marc Jacobs president Robert Duffy dressing down to his white briefs was posted on Jacobs’ YouTube channel — only to be removed by its user almost as quickly as it appeared. It was unclear when the video was filmed and how it made its way onto YouTube, but the clip — clearly a spoof on an ad campaign with a price tag for each piece of Marc merch he takes off — comes at a sensitive time for Duffy and Marc Jacobs International. Duffy is at the center of a lawsuit alleging violations of state and city laws based on charges of sexual discrimination and retaliation, filed by former Marc Jacobs executive Patrice Lataillade. Duffy denies the charges and countered that Lataillade was fired for doctoring the company’s figures in order to gain a bonus. A spokeswoman for Marc Jacobs International could not be reached for comment.
