Hats Off (And New Ones On)

-------

The hat beat is a tricky one: It seems that no sooner has everyone seemed to agree on a particular shape or style, then it’s on to the next. A season or two back, every boy at the Beatrice had found his way to a porkpie of sorts, a sixties-slick moment fatted, it felt, on Mad Men mania. Then, all of a sudden, they were gone. Giant, slouchy knit caps—snoods, if you will—replaced them, winter, spring, and fall. And now? We notice that two ahead-of-the-curve gentlemen, Hedi Slimane and André Saraiva, were out and about in the last week in similar floppy fedoras. Slimane saw things in black and white at Larry Gagosian’s opening for Andreas Gursky; André rocked a dandyish lilac version at Maison Darré . (Not to belabor the point, he lost it for the Purple party.) That’s two, and three, as they say, makes the trend. Any takers?

French Invasion Edition: Lanvin To Vegas, Le Baron To New York, And More…

Is Le Baron coming to New York City? According to Eater, a deal is in the works for an NYC outpost of André’s famous Parisian club on the border of Chinatown and the Financial District. Spring ’11 fashion week revelers, starting girding yourselves now. [Eater]

And Tommy Hilfiger may see a change of hands: Vogue U.K. is reporting that its owner, Apax Partners, is considering selling. All eyes are on Phillips-Van Heusen, seen as the likeliest buyer; the company already licenses Tommy’s shirting and neckwear. Wholesale intrigue! [Vogue U.K.]

Blasblog from Paris: All Roads Lead to Montana

-------


When we say that André has the lock on Paris nightlife, we make no exaggeration. Last night I logged in time at three of his clubs: Régine’s, Le Baron, and Le Montana. That last one is his newest edition and last night, André revealed the site’s storied history (Purple magazine’s blowout being the latest notch in its bedpost). Before it was a sixties and seventies hotspot, Le Montana served as a thirties-era communist hangout; and before transforming into its latest bejeweled iteration, it was a loud-and-proud gay club in the eighties. As André scanned the crowd—which included Olympia Scarry, Angela Lindvall, and Milla Jovovich with their adoring male best friends—he smiled. “Some things never change,” he said. “But we could use more communists.”

Paris Highlights: Le Beat Goes On

-------

With just one day of rest between Milan’s Extreme blow-out Monday night and today’s shows in Paris, RTW devotees are gearing up for the Month of Fashion’s final lap. Paris, like its metropolitan counterparts, is scaling back a bit this season (we hear Givenchy’s dark-and-rocking after-party has been canceled, for one), but the French city is still hosting more than its share of feuding fêtes.

Blasblog: The French Are Coming (to the Bowery)!

-------


You know, I was just thinking, now that Le Baron has set up a permanent outpost in Tokyo and done pop-ups in Miami during Art Basel, why hasn’t André Saraiva moved on to New York turf? Sure, he has his hooks in the hipster crowd with Beatrice Inn, but surely the cool kids—with their top hats and skinny jeans and messy hair—would be up for some more Le Baron fun during the New York collections. Well, wouldn’t you know it, Le Baron’s master of ceremonies is bringing three nights of hedonism to our fair city, courtesy of the Bowery Hotel, Le Baron, and Purple magazine’s Olivier Zahm. Last night was the temporary club’s debut, and its Parisian counterpart’s trademark fluorescent lights lit up Paul Sevigny’s DJ booth. (Friday night’s mixer is Mark Ronson, while James Murphy and his crew take over on Saturday.) When pressed for more details via e-mail, André responded that the party’s goal was to “[inject] New York nightlife with the spirit of Paris and the crystal-clear promise of vodka.” Not a bad ambition, that.
