SOHO—That Jil Sander Uniqlo collaboration everyone's been obsessing about for months now? It launches tomorrow. We'll be standing outside the doors of 546 Broadway when they open at 10am—will you? [Refinery29]

THE INTERNET—In the aftermath of yesterday's Scarfgate allegations, we asked Gilt how they figure out their pricing. Our source tells us that they do get the MSRP from the vendors, as we speculated, and then compare the retail and discount pricing online. Meanwhile, The Vie Society got a very sweet note from the Gilt people that reads in part, "First off want to apologize for the Sofia Cashmere pricing madness. Our merchandising team has been up in arms and have been on the horn with Sofia about being given the incorrect retail value. Oddly enough they did check out Neiman's, in addition to others for competitive pricing and the scarf never came up. You are a far better bargain shopper!" [The Vie Society]
