Givenchy Steps Off The Catwalk, Stella Steps Onto The Court, Designers Dress Up The Garment Center, And More…

-------

Don’t look for Givenchy on the couture calendar this July—Riccardo Tisci will show his Couture collection for the house (shaved down to ten looks to accommodate customization) by private appointment. Apparently, the most devoted couture clients, royals that they are, couldn’t attend the shows for security reasons, anyway. Yeah, we know how that story goes. (For good measure, here’s one more glimpse at Spring 2010 couture, left.) [WWD]

Rumor has it that Scott Campbell, tattoo artist to the stars, has designed bags for next week’s Louis Vuitton menswear show. Since “to the stars” includes “to Marc Jacobs,” we’ve heard stranger allegations. [Elle]

We’re still curious to see Venus Williams’ new outfit at Wimbledon (she promises it’ll be divisive), but the tourney’s shaping up to be quite the fashion event: Stella McCartney will dress Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki in her Adidas duds. [Vogue U.K.]

New Yorkers, swing by the Garment District today for a glimpse of designers installing their Ralph Pucci-created mannequins for the Fashion Center Sidewalk Catwalk. Jason Wu, Rebecca Taylor, Betsey Johnson, and Tommy Hilfiger are among the designers who are pitching in. [WWD]

Anna Dello Russo—fashion peacock extraordinaire—collaborated with Yoox on a line of T-shirts of (what else) her own classic outfits. They sold out in less than 2 days. [Thread NY]

Blasblog: Pierre Hardy, Cubed

-------

To the naked eye, it would seem like a strange place to have a shoe store: a seemingly residential neighborhood with what looks like government building on a square. But as Giovanna Battaglia explained to me at Pierre Hardy’s shop on the Place de la Palais Bourbon, looks can be deceiving. On the opposite side of the square is Condé Nast’s French headquarters (“and believe me, shoes are an important thing in there,” Battaglia explained), just up the road was “the best flower shop in all of Paris,” and just a few doors, a cafe called Le Bourbon, one of the city’s premiere lunch spots. I’ll never doubt Pierre again.

The reason for this particular gathering was Hardy’s collection of Cube Perspective canvas bags and shoes, which were on view throughout the store. Citing old palazzos in Venice and more modern examples in contemporary art, Hardy said that cubic motifs have been a common design element for centuries. “A designer, by nature, likes geometric shapes and sculptures,” Hardy explained, which in turn explained the unique shape of his retail space: an L-shaped store in the corner of the square. I had to know-what was the significance of the letter L? “I never thought about it, but sure. It’s an L! For love. The love of shoes!” Attendees like L’Wren Scott (pictured with Hardy) and Anna Dello Russo likely would’ve agreed.

Reconsidering The Pantsuit

-------

As far as I can tell, the evolution of pants over the past couple years seems to have gone something like this: skinny, very skinny, legging-like, leggings, and then, of course, to utter extinction, with no pants at all. But like death and taxes, you can also rely on the fashion pendulum’s reverse swing. This past weekend, the pantsuit seemed to have a flickery moment of life. First there was Junya Watanabe’s show, in which the smartest and freshest looks were those with slim (but still bona fide) pants worn with very tailored jackets. Barneys New York’s Julie Gilhart immediately pronounced herself a fan. Then yesterday at Givenchy, Vogue Nippon‘s front-row bellwether Anna Dello Russo arrived in characteristically impeccable form in a cream-colored jacket and trousers from Riccardo Tisci’s Fall collection. Starting to feel it yet?

Fashion’s Night Out, Italian Style

-------

All of the action isn’t in New York on September 10 (that’d be Fashion’s Night Out, for those of you not paying attention). Carla Sozzani of Milan’s celebrated 10 Corso Como store and art gallery is hosting a block party, celebrating an exhibition of the photographs found in the new picture book Italian Touch, commissioned by Tod’s and published by Skira. You can bet that Anna Della Russo will be there. She was photographed at her Milan home; that’s a super-enlarged still from Luchino Visconti’s The Leopard on the wall behind her and Tod’s pebble-soled moccasins next to her bare feet. Diego Della Valle of Tod’s, meanwhile, will be joined by models at the brand’s New York store that night, where artisans will be on hand to personalize purchases. The book will be available to order there, and sold at Barnes & Noble and Borders stores nationwide.
