Happy Fashion News Day! And Friday. Here's everything you need to know before weekend time. Listen up.
There was a point on Wednesday afternoon when lots of us thought that Dolce and Gabbana were off to prison. Technically, they have been sentenced to 20 months each for tax evasion. However, such is the Italian legal system that they probably won't ever actually end up behind bars. The Telegraph have the company's full statement here. So, those making hilarious references to the next collection being "all about stripes", it looks like you'll be disappointed.

Even though we can't see Tom Ford's new men's collection, there's one thing we can glean from the feedback of those who saw it. Tom is doing t-shirts. This means that he's probably still in his street fashion obsession phase which saw him base an entire collection on "Would Rihanna wear this?" for AW13.

Make sure you find time this weekend- if you haven't already- to listen to Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman's excellently selected Desert Island Discs which include Bowie's Drive In Saturday and We Three by Patti Smith. There are plenty of fun anecdotes and interesting thoughts which come out of her interview with Kirsty Young too. Listen here.
To top off the week's news, here are five looks from London Collections: Mens which I would quite like to wear myself... Happy Weekend.
