Editor Obsessions: Perfect Trousers From Maison Martin Margiela

-------

noah-editor-obsessionem>Every day, Style.com’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.

I spend a lot of time thinking about pants. Much more than any sane man should. What I’ve determined is that a perfect-fitting trouser is incredibly difficult to find, but not impossible. The anonymous, lab-coated designers of Maison Martin Margiela have figured it out. Lately, I’m really feeling a tapered, slightly longer fit with a slight crease down the leg. And always blue.

Kate Moss Plays Director for British Vogue

-------


We’re used to seeing Kate Moss in front of the camera. Just in the past few weeks, the supe starred in the new Stella McCartney ad campaign and verified that her career is stronger than ever—this year was her most lucrative to date. (She’s reportedly worth $92 million.) Seeing her on the other side of the lens, however, isn’t something that happens quite so often. For British Vogue‘s September issue, Moss took her first stab at filmmaking with The Wolf in Her, a short film that captures Lara Stone frolicking in the woods for a Mario Sorrenti shoot. Shot on a Super 8 camera, the film has a fuzzy, ethereal quality to it, enriched by background music from her husband Jamie Hince’s band, The Kills. A few wolves also made it into the video, which makes us question the fear factor on set. We’d like to think Moss kept her cool, as always. Watch the film, here.

At Barneys, a Slam Dunk for Russell Westbrook

-------

BARNEYS NEW YORK Hosts a Private Dinner in Honor of RUSSELL WESTBROOK and the Westbrook XO Barneys New York Limited Edition CollectionEven for an NBA pro like Russell Westbrook (pictured, right), the eighth floor of the Barneys New York flagship store last night was harder to navigate than a well-defended basketball court. Legions of fans, from adoring 12-year-old girls to designers like Thakoon Panichgul, turned out to support the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard and his new clothing and accessories collaboration with Barneys.

“My husband and I are very weirdly sporty—we are like Sporty Spice,” admitted Simon Doonan, creative ambassador-at-large for the retailer. “I said to [Russell] that I was his biggest fan, and then I realized I was probably his littlest fan—we had a good laugh about that,” he added, as he looked up at the towering 6’9″ Thunder star Kevin Durant and 6’8″ Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried (pictured, left), who were both standing nearby.

He was right about that. Moments later, Durant tapped Westbrook on the shoulder and asked his teammate, “Man, how do I get some of this?” Pulling at Westbrook’s leather jersey shirt (made in collaboration with Marcelo Burlon), Durant said, “I want what you have, like this one.” No discounts for teammates, apparently. He was given directions toward the right clothing rack and the cash register.

Afterward, Westbrook and co. headed to Bill’s Food & Drink to continue the celebrations over dinner. “Yeah, my friends like the line a lot,” the 25-year-old first-time designer told Style.com. “You might not see them wearing it on the courts just yet, but obviously, they’ll be walking into the arena in it, for sure.” Will he be taking time out of his day job to check out the design competition on the runways during New York fashion week next month? “I’ll be around at the shows—I definitely want to see Public School.”

Beyoncé and Sky Ferreira Favorited Label, Obesity + Speed, Draws a Crowd in Brooklyn

-------

OBESITY + SPEED Premiere of "It's Showtime"“It’s just like Urban Outfitters but cooler,” said one partygoer at the buzzy Space Ninety 8 in Williamsburg last night. The Urban-owned and -operated space is a new concept store featuring much of the retailer’s signature merchandise assortment, in addition to a first floor available for various pop-up shops, a third-floor bar and restaurant, and a rooftop lounge. In short, it was the hippest new space for Obesity + Speed, the downtown label favorited by the likes of Beyoncé, Sky Ferreira, and Kesha, to showcase its latest campaign video. The short, titled It’s Showtime, is a three-minute ode to the subway guerilla dance group by the same name.

“I love subway dancers,” Pamela Love told us. “They’re fearless, and just trying to make a buck. Two things I totally appreciate.” But would Love ever consider joining in on the show? “Absolutely not. I prefer to watch.” Leigh Lezark took a similar position on the issue of subway performers—they’re cool, but she plans to stick to the turntables. After music sets from Greg K. (pictured, left), Vashtie (pictured, center), ASTR, and a surprise performance from subway dancer Malik himself, even the shyest of wallflowers was dancing.

Based on the crew of black-clad downtowners and Brooklynites who turned out for the fete, Obesity + Speed knows how to get the cool kids talking. And it doesn’t hurt that Beyoncé’s instantly iconic ski mask from her On the Run tour is an original Obesity + Speed. Or that the brand’s founder, Lyz Olko, also moonlights as director of nightlife for The Jane and The Westway. But despite the hype, Olko keeps things in perspective. “Tonight isn’t about the money or if what you’re doing is the coolest thing,” she said. “It’s about doing what you love and doing your best at it.”
