Giovanna Gets a Gold Star-------
When I first eyed the gold star hair clips Laura and Kate Mulleavy designed for their Australian Outback, dust storm-inspired Fall Rodarte show, I believe my exact words were, “Need. Want.” (A message that was delivered via Instagram, of course). While I later learned that the barrettes would not make it onto retail counters, Giovanna Battaglia managed to get her hands on one for last night’s Marc Jacobs-sponsored Art Production Fund Urban Hoedown. Three months on and I’m still thinking the same thing: Need. Want. Thoughts on the clip’s first off-the-runway cameo?
Update: Due to overwhelming response, the clips will be produced—and will be available this summer at www.paire.us.
