what price peace?

-------

The Swedish denim label Cheap Monday has put a new spin on that old question by sewing “Increase the Peace” patches onto its beloved skinny jeans. Available in two colors, very stretch black and very stretch one wash (blue), they’ll be sold exclusively at Barneys New York stores beginning on Election Day, November 4. No, buying a pair won’t help the situation in Iraq or Afghanistan, but at $65, they just might ease the situation in your wallet.

a bunch of real knockouts at barneys

If you found yourself on the fourth floor of Barneys last night and the people surrounding you looked a little less fashion-y than usual, you can thank Reed Krakoff. Coach hosted a party amid the Armani shearlings and Burberry sweaters to celebrate the launch of Krakoff’s new book, Fighter: The Fighters of the UFC, some of whom were present and hulking over the crowd. “I’m completely addicted. This really is an incredible sport, and these guys are true athletes,” gushed avowed UFC fan Mandy Moore, who was recently inspired to learn jujitsu. “It’s not just about boxing. It might not seem like it, but this is really a thinking man’s sport.” And why did this group of extreme athletes decide to do a book with a Prada-wearing fashion executive? “F the traditionalists, all they care about is college football,” replied UFC president Dana White. “But Reed? He really respects what we do.”

Blasblog: barneys on the (environmentally responsible) go-go

-------

If you thought you spotted Barneys creative director Simon Doonan spinning around town in the back of a Volkswagen bug this week, occasionally in the company of Barneys babes Dawn Brown and Julie Gilhart, you weren’t experiencing a fashion-induced hallucination—it really is happening. And while he might be old enough to have had an original Beetle (only kidding, Simon!), this one is worth more than nostalgia: When the perfectly metropolitan automobile is raffled off later this year—tickets are going for a cool $100—proceeds will go to benefit the Volkswagen Carbon Neutral Project, which is making great strides to help reduce the auto industry’s effects on the environment. “No, it’s not made of tofu,” Doonan told us. “But it’s a terrific program and a terrific cause.” Good for the environment, perhaps, but sandwiching the Barneys team into the car has not been entirely trouble-free. “First, Julie had a bronchial infection,” Doonan continued. “And now the driver has one. Well, we’re not taking any chances—now we drive with the windows down, which Dawn hates ’cause it messes her hair.”
