Karl’s New Pop Star, Hermès Moves In, And More…

-------

Following up Beth Ditto’s extremely fleshy performance at Fendi’s Paris fashion week party last season is no easy feat, but Herr Karl has deemed 18-year-old British pop star Pixie Lott (that’s her at left) up to the task. Whether or not she disrobes, this gig basically guarantees her a year of fashion-world relevancy. [WWD]

Guided by voices (no, seriously, his psychic told him to do it), Isaac Mizrahi opens his first store, er, we mean shop. “I’m afraid to call it a store because that immediately makes you think about sales expectations,” Mizrahi explained. Interesting strategy… [WWD]

Lady Gaga’s first foray into fashion design: Heartbeats, a line of high-resolution headphones that look a little bit like ear candy. Will they work if you have your pants on? The question remains. [The Moment]

Up next for Tom Binns? Barbie shoes and a booklet, available at Colette during Couture. [Fashion Week Daily]

Asprey’s new landlord, Hermès, claims to be just that, but we’re a little skeptical. Hermès scooped up Asprey’s 20,000-square-foot global headquarters-slash-flagship
store on New Bond Street in London and called it “property investment.” We call it the first step toward luxury-accessory domination. [WWD]
