German Import: Talbot Runhof


Bavarian fashion is much better represented by eveningwear designers Johnny Talbot (an American expat) and Adrian Runhof than Sacha Baron Cohen’s Bruno. The Munich-based duo, in town to show Resort (they sell at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue), told me that they’re weathering the recession pretty well. “We are the least expensive brand on the most expensive floor—and that’s a good position to be in,” Talbot explained. What they call “the Gubelmann effect” isn’t hurting, either. The blonde candle maven is a fan and has been spreading the word.
