Seems like LVMH is slowly taking control of some of the largest fashion labels out there.
Currently, LVMH controls such labels as Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Fendi and Givenchy. But rumor has it they might be adding Rodarte to their high profile list.
According to reports, the company has already held several meetings with Rodarte about a potential investment.
It didn’t help that LVMH’s fashion division ceo Pierre-Yves Roussel was spotted sitting front row recently at Rodarte’s Autumn/Winter 2010 show.
But really, LVMH investing in a brand loved by a younger, indie crowd? Not their typical investment.
So far neither side has commented on any possible acquisition.

"Sometimes it hurts my feelings, but basically I'm really happy with the attention that we get. It's more work-related than what I'm going through in my personal life. If people weren't interested in the work then they wouldn't really care about my personal life. So I think about it logically. The attention toward me is basically because of what we've built as a company. If we built a pile of crap then nobody would care what I ate for lunch."

Looks like Twi-hards can soon add two more characters to their collection!
To celebrate the newest film in the Twilight saga, both Alice and Victoria will join Edward, Bella and Jacob as the newest characters to be made into collectible Barbies.
No word on how much they'll cost or the exact date of their release, but we're sure retailers won't have any problems selling them.
