The trailer for Wes Anderson’s latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel (out this March), has been released, and it seems fashion’s favorite androgynous actress—Tilda Swinton—has aged a few decades to play the role of Madame D. Starring alongside Anderson favorites like Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, and Jason Schwartzman as well as Jude Law, Saoirse Ronan, Léa Seydoux, and more, Swinton (who, from the looks of it, has a steamy fling with Ralph Fiennes’ character Gustave H, before—spoiler alert—she’s murdered) is glamorous as ever while dripping in velvets, pearls, and furs. If the trailer (below) is any indication, Anderson’s flick will be one worth watching—both for its cast and, of course, its clothes, courtesy of discerning costume designer Milena Canonero.
Moto enthusiasts, including Adrien Brody, Alexandra Richards, and André Balazs, turned out to the Diesel Soho shop last night to take the new Ducati Monster Diesel for a spin (or at least, sit on it and dream of driving). For those not yet ready to conquer the road, they can at least conquer the wardrobe. The Diesel Style Team, under the guidance of Diesel founder Renzo Rosso, created a capsule collection of biker gear to go along with the collaborative bike. The full collection of jackets (from $340), denim ($240), and T-shirts (from $75) is in Diesel stores now.

Real men, including actors and “personalities from the worlds of fashion, art, and business,” are set to have a moment in the limelight at the menswear shows this season. Brioni is reportedly using models and personalities in its still-life presentation, and several movie stars, including Adrien Brody, are set to walk in Prada’s runway show. [WWD]

French swimwear line Tooshie has partnered with A.P.C. to create an 11-piece capsule collection that includes powder blue trunks for men and one-pieces for women. “I like the idea of an eccentric print on a very simple bathing suit,” says A.P.C.’s designer, Jean Touitou. [T]

As 80th birthday parties go, few we’ve heard of were better attended than the Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso’s. Clever staging, involving displays of 50 movements used for the watch, a gallery of exceptional timepieces, and artisans demonstrating their craft, were all on view for guests, but they were slightly overshadowed however by the arrival of megawatt fans like Clive Owen, Adrien Brody, Catherine Deneuve, and brand ambassadress Diane Kruger.
For the fashion crowd, the evening offered a break from Couture preparations. What to expect from the haute week? The hints they provided point to a sassy revision of the classics. Maxime Simoens, for one, is tackling vampires—Nosferatu, to be precise. Alexis Mabille said he was polishing a sartorial take on beloved French verses and compiling a collection of ten L.B.D.s’ for Guerlain’s rollout of La Petite Robe Noire fragrance this fall.
Speaking of which, vintage guru Didier Ludot, the owner of a boutique specializing in the L.B.D., is putting the final touches on his traditional windows, which are unveiled at an event at the Palais Royal on Sunday. But this time it’s not exactly about a couturier; it’s about the first of the truly great French chefs, François Vatel, who served Louis XIV. Still, the Couture connection is there: For one thing, Christian Dior once penned a book called La Cuisine Cousu-Main (“Handsewn Cuisine”), inspired by his fascination with eighteenth-century gastronomy. “The gestures are the same, and the desire to astonish is the same,” explained Ludot. “Louis XIV consumed 8,000 calories a day, so there was a real mise-en-scène, with fireworks and sprays of water.” The display features five exceptional Dior dresses from Ludot’s collection alongside Ladurée pastries created especially in the spirit of each one—interestingly, not a single macaron among them.
