Is Proenza getting a new parent? Rumor has it Theory president Andrew Rosen—who, in addition to controlling Theory and Helmut Lang, has invested in Rag & Bone, Alice + Olivia and Gryphon—is mulling a stake in the New York label. Pemira, which owns 45% of the business is looking to sell its share; designers Jack McCollough, Lazaro Hernadez, and CEO Shirley Cook will keep their 55%. [WWD]
It’s battle of the newspaper glossies this weekend when the first Sally Singer-edited issue of T and the first Deborah Needleman-edited issue of WSJ. hit stands. A hundred lucky people got a sneak preview today, though: T put 100 copies near their offices on 40th Street, which, according to Twitter, were gone within 2 hours. [@themoment]
Is Diddy elbowing in on Kanye territory? The rapper is certainly courting the fashion world at the moment: His next album, Last Train to Paris, features spoken-word cameos from Marc Jacobs, Isaac Mizrahi, Tommy Hilfiger, and André Leon Talley. [Huffington Post]
And Natalia Vodianova (left) must have had her Jock Jams blasting lately. The gorgeous model has been repping her home country of Russia on two separate athletic fronts lately: As the official Ambassador of the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, and as part of a delegation to secure the 2018 World Cup for Russia.

Do not adjust your set—that really is Jack and Lazaro of Proenza Schouler teaching Martha how to tie-dye on The Martha Stewart Show today. (But if you’d rather leave the DIY to the professionals, you’ll be glad to know that PS is offering a tie-dyed racer-back tank, pictured, for a limited time on its Web site.) [Martha Stewart]
The surest sign that spring is here: The shirts are off outside of Hollister. [Racked]
From their parlor to yours: Parlor showroom—which reps lines like Timo Weiland, Rachel Antonoff, and Samantha Pleet—is taking its show on the road, driving an RV cross-country to sell Fall 2010 directly to consumers. Well, when retail’s down… [Fashionista]
And DVF adds a new continent to her worldwide empire. The designer opened her first South American store in Brasília’s new Iguatemí Mall, and André Leon Talley curated an exhibition of Diane-iana (but of course) for the occasion. [WWD]
Does Isaac Mizrahi sleep? It hardly seems likely. Not only is Mizrahi prepping Spring ’10 collections for both his own label and Liz Claiborne, where he came on board as creative director last year, but he plays a starring part in Bravo’s new series The Fashion Show, he blogs, and he hosts his own weekly fashion klatch on his Web site, and frankly, God knows what else he’s up to, but certainly something. Nevertheless, Mizrahi has managed to carve out some spare time over the past six months to jump into a new role as curator: His first exhibition, Summer Pictures, opens at the Julie Saul Gallery in Chelsea this Thursday night and features work by artists such as Maira Kalman, Adrianne Lobel, Lisa Sanditz, Julia Sherman, and Wayne Thiebaud. Here, Mizrahi talks to Style.com about color, cupcakes, and more color.
What made you decide that you wanted to curate an art show?
Oh, gosh. Let’s see…Well, my friend Julie Saul has a gallery, and not too long ago she became the gallerist for my very dear friend Maira Kalman, and then we started talking. She—Julie—was telling me that the gallery is usually pretty slow in the summertime, and I mentioned that I’d love to put together a small show of work by artists that I really love, and then, you know, it was just one of those things.
