Back to School

Gant hits the books, while Marc Jacobs prepares to revisit his most crowd-pleasing designs.

Resurgent prep purveyor Gant has its manufacturing roots in New Haven, Connecticut, which makes it all the more surprising that the company hasn’t serviced that town’s captive Ivy League audience with a stand-alone retail outlet. That will all change come November 22, when New Haven’s former Langrock Fine Clothes space is transformed into the Gant Campus Store. In addition to carrying a wide selection of the Gant, Gant Rugger, and Gant by Michael Bastian lines, the shop will also revive Yale Co-op, a long discontinued collection of button-down oxford shirts any self-respecting Take Ivy-era Yalie coveted. (Something tells us the once-again-prep-obsessed undergrads of 2010 will, too.)

And yesterday, while much of the style world’s eyes were squarely focused on the International Herald Tribune‘s Heritage Luxury Conference (and the barrage of Lagerfeld-related tweets emanating from its halls), Marc Jacobs quietly announced birthday plans for his always-reliable Marc by Marc collection. To mark the secondary line’s 10th anniversary, Jacobs will release a “greatest hits” capsule collection spanning each season since the brand’s 2001 inception. Look for it to hit stores in the spring.
