Silvie Koang THE WEEK IN FASHION: JUNE 10th- 14th Friday, June 14, 2013 Posted by Bethan Holt, Junior Fashion Editor at Large It's been a mega fashion news week that I barely know where to begin. So let's... 5

It's been a mega fashion news week that I barely know where to begin. So let's start at the very beginning...

On Monday morning, before most of us had washed the weekend out of our hair Mulberry announced that Emma Hill would be leaving after six years as Creative Director. Initial reports suggested that it was due to some strategy disagreements between Hill and company bosses. In an interview with Vogue, CEO Bruno Guillon said,  "I was respectful of her decision - it is perfectly natural for a designer to want to move on and try new challenges after six years. She did a wonderful job, but we have to see this as a new opportunity - a time of new ideas." Specualtion has already begun as to whether Hill may be up for the Creative Director vacancy at Coach, following Reed Krakoff's departure earlier in the year. Industry thoughts have already turned to who might replace Hill when she leaves later in the year. Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley were among the early favourites, but the fact they have recently signed up to Marc by Marc Jacobs might take them out of the running. Fashion insider favourite Sophie Hulme has also been tipped for the job, a choice which would almost certainly take Mulberry in a sleeker, chicer new direction. Watch this space.

H&M made lots of girls very happy and very excited on Tuesday when they announced that their latest designer collaborator would be Isabel Marant. It's a move which makes sense in many ways for Marant, given that her wedge trainers, ikat printed dresses and jackets, boho tops and skinny jeans are so copied that you're almost guaranteed to find some "version" in any high street shop you go into. The collection will be available to buy from14th November. Expect queues and sell-outs.

John Galliano continued his carefully PR orchestrated comeback this week with his first TV interview. He spoke for an hour to Charlie Rose (you can watch the whole thing here). Galliano apologised for his anti-semitic rants but also speaks in depth about his design aesthetic, his career and how he's spent the past two years. It's a must-watch. Last weekend, Cathy Horyn wrote a very interesting post for the New York Times on Galliano's comeback efforts thus far and how he might proceed in the future.

Last week's Fashion news was published just a little too late to cover the sudden and sad death of stylist Annabel Tollman. This is a fantastic tribute and précis of Tollman's career.... "Make a fairytale and go and live in it."

In more news of fashion house comings and goings, Jason Wu has been appointed Creative Director at Hugo Boss.  Wu said "I have long been a fan of Hugo Boss's vast tradition and lineage in extraordinary tailoring. With the state-of-the-art facilities that are unique to the Hugo Boss design labs, I plan to develop a strong, feminine womenswear collection that reciprocates the brand's authority in menswear."

ASOS reported this week that their new Primark offer is selling so well that the product offer will soon double from 70 to 140 pieces.

Alexa Chung has been dropping hints about her forthcoming book for some time now but it was properly unveiled for the first time this week. Aptly entitled "It", the book looks like it'll be a guide to how to be Alexa Chung. The description goes something like this:

"With influences that range from Jane Birkin to Mick Jagger, Alexa Chung is a unique fashion icon. Her first book, It, provides her legion of fans with a long-awaited inside look at her world.

A truly one-off collection of Alexa's personal writings, drawings and photographs, It covers everything from her thoughts on life, love and music to her favourite looks and how to decide what to wear in the morning. With wit, charm and a refreshingly down-to-earth attitude, this gorgeously-designed full-colour book is a must-have for anyone who loves fashion, music and just about everything Alexa Chung."

Prada unveiled its AW13 men's campaign this week. If you recall, the collection was all about the most perfect pieces. Nothing outlandish, just simple but done precisely. Ben Whishaw, Christoph Waltz and Ezra Miller star in the images, shot by David Sims. And don't they look handsome?

And finally, a very bad picture leaked on Instagram of Robert Pattinson's forthcoming Dior ads...
