Club Monaco has been making some seriously fashionable and photogenic moves lately. Last spring, they celebrated famed photographer Bert Stern and their Fashion’s Night Out event featured photo progeny Victor Demarchelier taking portraits of lucky customers. This season, they tapped photo world wunderkind Ryan McGinley to shoot a host of A-list names and boldfaced scenesters for their spring campaign — the result of which is young, fun, and very worthy of last week’s launch event.
As hard as Tom Ford may try, this industry is not good at keeping secrets.

Today, there were two separate references in WWD to the cartoon powerhouse.
