Comme des Garcons for H&M + Barney's Warehouse Sale + Fashion Quiz!

*Nitrolicious has a first look at Comme de Garcons for H&M:
According to W Magazine, "Mostly black and with Japanese tomboy airs, the H&M collection includes a range of tailored jackets, many deconstructed, along with cropped pants, baggy shorts and a variety of skirts in stretch wool. On the perkier side are polkadot knits in jersey or merino wool, colorful shirts—some with dots—and a “showpiece” coatdress decorated here and there with dense Victorian ruffles. " Yawwwwwwn.

* I just received my postcard in the mail for Barney's Warehouse NY & LA Sample Sales:
Details:
Why: 50 - 70% off regular prices on select designer clothing, shoes and accessories for men and women, as well as home.
When: LA - Thursday, August 7th thru Sunday, August 17th // NYC - Thursday, August 14th thru Monday, September 1st (check flyers for opening hours)
Where: LA - Barker Hangar, Santa Monica Air Center, 3021 Airport Ave, 310.777.5700 // NYC - 255 West 17th St (btwn 7th & 8th Ave), 212.450.8400
Let me let you all in on a little sample sale secret: Never go the first day. It's a madhouse. Besides, they replenish the stock in most cases. Go during the last few days, pick up a couple Manolo's and call it a day. You can thank me later.

Now for a little fashion fun, care of PinkCherie and the Fashion Bomb!
Whoever can tell me the name of the head designer of the Gap...
...and why we should care, will win a Fashion Bomb T and a fashionable accessory from Pink Cherie! Get to googling! E-mail me at thefashionbomb@gmail.com with your answer!
Update: Sorry to keep you waiting...we had an answer within 2 minutes from Tamandra from Cali!!!
She correctly answered that the head designer for the GAP is Patrick Robinson...

As commenter Nicole said, "After successful tenures with Perry Ellis, Anne Klein, Paco Rabanne and Giorgio Armani (to name but a few), Robinson made his way to Gap in May 2007. Just one month before his Gap appointment he was featured in a Fashion Bomb Black History Spotlight." Thorough; love my back in the day readers. Oh, reader Nadine also added, "We care cause he’s a brotha!!!" Y'all are hilarious. Congrats to Tamandra for her quick response! Thanks to everyone who participated. Stay tuned for even more Fashion Bomb contests!
