- The amazing designing sisters behind Rodarte, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, beat out Proenza Schouler and Behnaz Sarafpour to land the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award. That said, the win doesn't seem like a complete surprise, given that the Cooper-Hewitt staged a full-on exhibit of the brand's works earlier this year. [Daily Front Row]

- Conde Nast publishing veteran Tom Florio -- who started his long career at Vogue in the '90s, launching Teen Vogue and Men's Vogue along the way -- has announced he'll be leaving the company at the end of June, with no successor yet announced. On the heels of Sally Singer announcing she's also leaving the company and the recent shakeups at W (two more staffers left the magazine just today), it's indeed feeling like a massive turn-over moment for the company.

- The esteemed Italian fashion house of Gianfranco Ferre is officially for sale: The auction started on Wednesday. [Reuters]

- As if our list of coveted too-expensive items wasn't long enough, Proenza Schouler has "super-sized" the PS1 bag for resort. Oy. [Style File]

- The launch of Velvet's new collaboration with Uniqlo today may not have been overwhelmed by shoppers (though apparently they did go after the harem pants in a major way), but news that the brand will be coming out with some new styles in cashmere for fall is tantalizing indeed.
