Anna Dello Russo, At Large At Macy’s-------
Macy’s is upping its high-fashion game of late. Karl Lagerfeld’s line for the retailer hits stores at the end of the month, and last week, the department store announced Anna Dello Russo (she of Vogue Nippon and umpteen street-style blogs) as the guest editor at large of its in-house INC line. Dello Russo styled the new campaign and stars in it alongside Karolina Kurkova (above); for Fashion’s Night Out, she and the Czech supe will greet guests at Macy’s Herald Square flagship, too. She wasn’t on hand last night—this being August and she being Italian she was, of course, on vacation—but her new project was fêted in New York all the same, and a host of downtown girls showed up to celebrate. Sky Ferreira worked the DJ booth while guests sipped bubbly and models paraded around in the collection, and Harley Viera-Newton, Chelsea Leyland, and Becka Diamond all came for a look. Solange Knowles arrived with 7-year-old son Juelz in tow, who was looking a little displeased. Was it the flashbulbs? “He’s definitely used to it,” she laughed. “He’s just upset because my iPhone ran out of batteries.”
Partygoers mused on ADR hits past and the INC hits of the present. “Of course you’ve got to love that gold cherries hat,” Ferreira said. “I remember seeing her in this red dress with long gloves and big shoulder pads,” Knowles added. “All I could think was…incredible.” While they were referring to Dello Russo’s fresh-off-the-runway looks, Diamond had her eye on a piece from the new lineup: “I’m definitely getting that fuchsia, shaggy faux fur jacket. Obsessed!” With prices starting at $30 and maxing out at $169, why not?
