Too-Fast Fashion, Courthouse Couture, Karl And Rachel Scream For Ice Cream, And More…


Alaïa speaks! The reclusive designer spared a word or two when he showed a few Fall looks to a gathered mass in Paris. Here’s what he had to say of fashion’s frantic pace: “It’s inhumane…too many collections; too much pressure.” [WWD]

The Times takes on a controversial topic: the dress code of the court appearance. Lindsay Lohan—a frequent guest of the L.A. County courthouse—tends to go high and tight (like her recent white Kimberly Ovitz number); her old friend Nicole Richie used to go classier in Breakfast at Tiffany’s-style black; and as for Naomi Campbell, she, of course, wears her good friend Azzedine Alaïa.

Today in news we didn’t see coming: Karl Lagerfeld shoots Rachel Bilson for an ad in Paris…an ice cream ad. [Elle U.K.]

And from the annals of westward expansion: Taavo Somer’s New York-based Freemans Sporting Club will open its first California outpost in San Francisco’s Mission District next month. [WWD]
