outrageous fortune



Over-the-top deeds were on the collective brain at the launch of Outrageous, Frédéric Malle’s new unisex perfume for Barneys Co-Op. “I’m of the era of disco and Studio 54, so I do have some wild stories,” said the creator of the scent, which includes notes of caipirinhas, fresh laundry, and orange blossoms. “It was so sexy and brash, which I’ve taken for the perfume’s inspiration—but I edited out the heavy, dirty parts.” (Ed.’s note: It must be a trend. Fashionista reports today that Bond No. 9 has released a new fragrance, Andy Warhol Silver Factory, with notes of cigarettes, martinis, quaaludes, and speed, among other improbable things.) For more contemporary ideas, Malle did not have to look far. “You could say that Simon Doonan is my muse,” he said. “Who’s more outrageous than him?” The Barneys creative director, whose memoir Nasty is being turned into a BBC show by Jon Plowman (the man who brought us Absolutely Fabulous and The Office), was “profoundly flattered” to hear of his role in the fragrance’s creation. “I was much worse in my 20s, during the punk era, than I am now,” said Doonan. “By comparison, Lindsay and Paris look pretty conventional and bourgeoisie, give or take a thong or two.”

take me out to the ballgame



While most fashion editors mingled downtown at Phillip Lim’s new Mercer Street store last night, a select few were way, way uptown, hanging with the Bronx Bombers. As if sitting in the Adidas/Y-3 luxury box wasn’t enough—think of it as Homer Simpson’s version of heaven, with all the hot dogs and beer you could consume—the group was also able to take turns watching from field-level seats as the Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays in an extra-inning game. Our favorite part of the evening? Sitting next to a heckling Blue Jays fan whose graphic T-shirt suggested an (ahem) deeper relationship between shortstop Derek Jeter and third baseman Alex Rodriguez. When the troublemaker yelled out to A-Rod, third-base coach Brian Butterfield turned around and told the peanut gallerist, “Just sit down.”

days of wine and poses



Amy Winehouse’s singular look—imperfect bouffant hair and winged eyeliner—is just one of the things that set the sultry singer-songwriter apart from her peers. So when we spotted this similarly coiffed and madeup New Yorker, we instantly thought of her. The stylish look-alike denied the connection, but we stand by our initial reaction

folding pattern



The fashion crowd flocked to the Highline Ballroom last night to witness the NYC debut of the Hilfiger Sessions. The concert series, which began in Europe in 2005, touched down in the U.S. for the first time with performances by younger acts like Emily King, Tamarama (a group made up of male models), and Susan Cagle, alongside more established acts like Arckid. Former Tommy Hilfiger intern DJ Cassidy played the dapper host and reminisced about his early experiences with Tommy and the gang. “I was 16 years old, and Tommy used to take me to Tavern on the Green, the White Party with Puffy, and Andre Harrell’s parties. That’s where I met everyone,” he said. But it wasn’t all glamour. “I got Andy [Hilfiger] a Sausage McMuffin every morning. And when the Wu-Tang Clan came in to get their clothes, I folded them. But that was the highlight of my summer, folding Raekwon’s rugby shirt. That was the highlight of my life.”

heaven can wait



We asked T-shirt wordsmith/DJ du jour Henry Holland to give us his impressions of Sunday’s “One Night in Heaven” party co-hosted by i-D magazine for Jeremy Scott at London’s Boombox. Since he’s a dedicated partygoer with the late-rising habits to match, his dispatch didn’t arrive until today. Here’s what he had to say:

“As we turned the corner into Hoxton Square, we were greeted by the usual scrum of ladyboys, fashion whores, and editors, all trying to catch the eye of door girl Cozette, tonight wearing a hot Giles frock. Due to bad timing—we knew we should have come earlier—we’re left waiting in the rain. Standing in the drizzle, we see Gareth Pugh run out to change into his Balenciaga gold robot leggings. Looks like we might have missed his set. Later, when we finally make it inside, we see Jeremy Scott arrive—so even the star of the night had trouble getting in. But he looks fabulous in a pair of stars-and-stripes shorts and a biker jacket. We try to make our way into the main room, but it’s too crowded for us to get in, so we decide to go out for a quick cigarette. Since the smoking ban came into effect last week, outdoor smoking areas are fast becoming unofficial VIP spots. This one is no different: Carrie Mundane and Gareth Pugh are sharing a lighter. Cigarettes smoked, we head back inside and hit the dance floor, but just as we’re getting into Jeremy’s DJ set, the lights come up. The night’s over—and once again, Boombox managed to pull it off fabulously.”
