A former Center City street vendor and his wife were fined $3,500 by a federal judge yesterday for trafficking in counterfeit Rolex watches, Gucci luggage and other fake goods. "I think that they've learned their lesson," U.S. District Judge Joseph L. McGlynn Jr. said, sparing Tae Hwan Kim, 46, and his wife, Jung Soon Kim, 39, from a prison sentence. The judge found them to be "truly remorseful," placed them on two years' probation, and recommended that they not be deported to their native Korea for their crimes.

In the fall women's collections here, the newsiest silhouette was long, slim and simple. Retro harked back to the 1970s. Pantsuits, particularly pinstriped, were the number-one item. Maxi coats, pea jackets and sweaters were other winter favorites. The uniform triumphed. The little dress was big. And two outsiders led the way as the international round of high-fashion shows started here last week. This week, the caravan moves to Paris. Amid the high-powered talents of Giorgio Armani and Gianni Versace, it was Tom Ford of Gucci and Miuccia Prada who heated up the Milan shows with fall collections that ignored the '70s rage and set the new standard for the young and the hip. Prada still favored the matronly "signora" style, but there were more sport and fun in her collection.

A Chicago bank has hired a creature named Gucci to design arty new checks and checkbooks. Gucci, who is famous for designing women's shoes and purses, has created checks with swans, daisies, mist-shrouded trees, rippling water, a sunrise and even a seagull against a lavender background. Gucci is not the hairy-chested type. The bank thinks this will attract new customers. Maybe it will, but I won't be one of them. Banks should be serious. My attitude toward them is the same as that of Mrs. Grobnik, who was Slats Grobnik's mother.

Allie Harold dreamed of the day he would own a nice car and his own home. He purchased a 1989 Honda Accord last November, and he was saving up to meet his next goal. "He dreamed about a three-bedroom house," said his cousin, Karla Howard. Harold was so intent on saving, he earned the affectionate nickname "Ali Con," because he would rather borrow a buck here or there from friends than spend his own money, said Howard. Harold died suddenly Sunday morning. He was 24 and lived in South Philadelphia.

King of Prussia's modern, glass-walled Gucci boutique was transformed one recent evening into an old-school piece-goods workshop. Four artisans - clad in leather aprons marked with the luxury label's double-G logo - tackled the making of different parts of a handbag. One sewed the hides together while another added tassels and punched holes in adjustable purse straps. Label-loving onlookers, cocktails in hand, were smitten. "It was very cool," said Hope Cohen of Bryn Mawr, who purchased a handbag, scarf, and sandals.

The big news on Chestnut Street yesterday was that Gucci T-shirts are out and Fila shirts are in. Gucci is fashion history, friends. This year's brand name of choice, by a 50-1 margin, is Fila. The colors of choice are red, black and white. A slick balance of hot and cool for those who want to Truly Hang this season. Forget about that fussy, glitzy business over in the Gallery. The real, spontaneous grass-roots Philadelphia Easter Sunday fashion show for casual wear was on the Chestnut Street Transitway west of Broad, where an estimated 3,000 youths went to the movies, played video games at the arcades and generally hung out. Until last year, this annual convergence of kids in the center of town was acknowledged, but given scant attention.

The FBI has joined an investigation into the disappearance Sunday in Newark, N.J., of the father of hip-hop star Wyclef Jean. The Rev. Gesner Jean, 59, was being sought by the Newark Police Department while federal agents pursued a parallel investigation, FBI spokeswoman Sandra Carroll said yesterday. "Apparently his disappearance has not been characterized yet, whether it's a kidnapping or he's just missing," Carroll said. She had no further details. Mr. Jean, the pastor of Good Shepherd Church of the Nazarene, was last seen at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Newark police said in a news release Monday.

AIR RUSHING THROUGH THEIR EARS Recent years have produced yuppies (young, urban professionals), DINKs (double-income, no kids), POSSLQs (persons of the opposite sex sharing living quarters) and DIWKs (double-income, with kids). Is the world ready for RUBs? RUBs are rich urban bikers - and we're talking bikers here, not effete cyclists. They have already appeared - why is this not a surprise? - in Beverly Hills, according to the Wall Street Journal. RUBs race their Harley- Davidsons up and down Rodeo Drive to some of the newest nightclubs including the Stock Exchange, which has a weekly bikers' night.

A PHILADELPHIA pimp who sold a child for sex and forced two other women into prostitution was sentenced yesterday to life in prison without a chance of parole. "The depravity of this case cannot be understated," said Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle Morgan in a sentencing memo. "The impact of this crime on the minor victim's emotional and psychological well-being is likely irrevocable. " Christian Dior Womack, 30, operated his prostitution network from May 2012 to February 2013 out of several hotels from Atlantic City to Virginia Beach.

AND HERE Tattle thought that Buzz Bissinger was in love with only himself. But, no. Thanks to a soul-searching, closet-opening personal essay in GQ magazine - essentially a "Letter to Penthouse " about clothes as written by a Pulitzer Prize-winning author - the best-selling journalist and former Inquirer and Daily News columnist lays out his personal demons - and they're all carefully dry-cleaned. Anyone who's ever heard Bissinger speak, ramble or rant knows that there is a lot going on in that cluttered brain of his, but few might have guessed that he had a shopping addiction that caused him to spend more than 600G on men's and women's fashion (he wore both)

RAPPER GUCCI MANE has been arrested in Miami on an Atlanta assault warrant, his lawyer said yesterday. Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis, was arrested Friday by Miami authorities on the outstanding police warrant, said lawyer Dennis Scheib. Mane was expected to be sent to Atlanta later this week.

The promoter was injured and later filed a complaint with police.

A clutch of bright balloons emblazoned with smiley faces dangled from a telephone pole in front of a blue, bay-side house - a signal that the festivities had begun. Inside, a group of about 20 women sipped wine, nibbled on cheese and crackers, and sampled an array of chichi handbags, wallets and watches. Many of them knew that the items were fake - that was part of the thrill. What they didn't know was that the faux fashion fun was about to end. Outside, two police cruisers crept up. Four uniformed officers emerged, walked past a cluster of cars, including a Lexus and a Mercedes, and entered the house.

The financial markets succeeded in reopening yesterday for the first time since the World Trade Center tragedy, but, as experts had predicted, the major indicators fell dramatically and relentlessly. On record volume, the Dow Jones industrial average fell 684.81 points, or 7.13 percent, to 8,920.70. The Nasdaq composite index fell 115.82 points, or 6.83 percent, to 1,579.55, while the Standard & Poor's 500 shed 53.77 points, or 4.92 percent, to 1,038.77. The losses, which came despite an interest-rate cut by the Federal Reserve before trading began, sent market measures to their lowest levels in three years.

" Like them, she's always on the move, lives to shop, loves fruity martinis and has a fierce collection of Jimmy Choos, the expensive designer shoe popularized on the show. "If you have great shoes and a handbag, a dress from J. Crew looks like Giorgio Armani," explained Scott, 28, who owns Danielle Scott Ltd. on Rittenhouse Square. Would you expect anything less from a shoe diva?
