Heidemarie out at Jil Sander, Drake and Mykki Blanco in at Calvin Klein and Diesel

And she leaves again: In a surprising turn of events, after only three seasons, Heidemarie Jiline Sander has once again left her eponymous label for "personal reasons." The departure marks her third exit from the brand, her first being in 2000 a year after a Prada-buyout and her second in 2004. The Fall 2014 collection will be designed by the in-house team and no replacement has been announced.

Would You Like a Tour in Calvin Klein: In the continuing tales of fashion brands courting hip-hop artists, Young Money's Drake will wear exclusive Calvin Klein Collection designs on his upcoming tour.  Designed by Italo Zucchelli, the current men's creative director at Calvin Klein, the selection composed of three capsule collections that span bomber jackets, hoodies, T-shirts, tanks and pants. One capsule is based on prints from the Calvin Klein spring collection, another fashioned only from denim, and a third utilizing high-tech fabrics with neon detailing.

Nicola's "Thank You": As a gesture of thanks to Diesel for appointing him artistic director, Nicola Formichetti - known most famously for his work with Gaga as well as Mugler - has designed a capsule collection for the denim company. The collection, which is composed of jeans, jackets and denim shirts, finds inspiration in the Diesel archives literally, as Formichetti sourced patchwork, buttons, trimming as well as studs while walking through the company's buildings in Italy. The collection will debut next week in a digital campaign created by Nick Knight via iPhone composed of GIFs, Instagram photos as well as videos featuring the rapper Mykki Blanco.
