Victoria Beckham Branches Out, Facchinetti’s Back In Fashion, Adventures In Uncool Clubbing, And More…

Ladies looking to add more Posh to their wardrobe will be happy to know that Victoria Beckham is launching a diffusion line, Victoria by Victoria. The singer-turned-designer’s newest dress collection, launching Spring 2012 at a starting price point of $550, is softer and less structured than she’s done in the past. [WWD]

Rumors that she’d join Tom Ford have followed Alessandra Facchinetti since she left Valentino in 2008, but today brings news of a different venture. The Italian designer is teaming up with Pietro Negra, the co-founder of Pinko, for a new line called Uniqueness. [WWD]

Legendary art dealer Larry Gagosian’s massive collection of priceless artwork nearly went up in flames the other night when a fire started in his kitchen. Miraculously, the 50 firefighters that put out the fire in Gagosian’s mansion in the Hamptons managed to save all of the artwork from water or fire damage—and one very large flat-screen television.

And is “cool” over? The Times charts the rise of club culture in non-club spaces, like Madame Wong’s and China Chalet (both, by day, middling Chinese restaurants). Why now? “I’m so tired of places that are cool,” The Journal’s Michael Nevin told the paper. Is it once again hip to be square? [NYT]
