Reed Krakoff Does Fragrance; Madonna Doesn’t; And More…


Designer Reed Krakoff has added a fragrance to his nascent fashion house, and it’s as luxe as they come. At $695 a piece, the four different colored Murano glass bottles are hand-numbered and only 100 of each shade will be produced. [WWD]

In a slightly more accessible bit of fragrance news, a date has been set for the release of Lady Gaga’s fragrance line. Spring 2012 is when the perfume, reportedly called Monster, and its ancillaries will hit shelves accompanied by what is being described as an “unprecedented and groundbreaking” ad campaign and a packaging design that encompasses the singer’s “artistic sensibility.” Expect commercials with next-level dance routines and maybe even a meat-covered bottle.

Now back to less accessible: Madonna is apparently being sued by a Canadian company over the forthcoming release of her Material Girl fragrance. Apparently the name Material Girls—with an S—already adorns perfume bottles up north. Why Madge didn’t copyright the name when she released her 1985 song, we’ll never understand. [Business Journal]

As the go-to coiffeur of Julia Roberts, SJP, and Gisele Bündchen, it’s safe to say that Serge Normant knows a thing or two about beautiful hair. Come December, the stylist will bottle said knowledge in an eponymous range of products. [WWD]

Finally, an answer to our burning, why-must-Rihanna-keep-her-hair-that-unflattering-shade-of clown-wig-red question: “I don’t really do edgy clothes. I had to take the edge somewhere else.” Might we suggest crazy footwear as an alternative? [Daily Star]
