D&G Open Their Doors To Others, Get Your Proenza Platforms While You Can, And More…


Dolce e Gabbana, sticking up for the little guys? The designers will now be stocking the work of up-and-coming designers—including Yigal Azrouël, Sophie Théallet, Behnaz Sarafpour, and Fausto Puglisi—at a new shop in Milan. They’re even doing the buying and outreach personally. [WWD]

Proenza Schouler’s Fall ’10 platforms were so great, we almost snatched them right off the runway. We didn’t do it then, but we might try it now: There are a very few runway-only shoes, which never went into production, now at Opening Ceremony. [Fashionologie]

They’re Designing For Divas—But Not The Usual Clientele


Designers, to your divas. Not the stylists, editors, press reps, and buyers that title usually goes to—we’re talking the real, shake-the-rafters, operatic kind. The New York City Opera is partnering with a handful of fashion’s best again this year for Divas Shop the Opera, when donated finery (both vintage and Spring ’10 pieces) from designers are sold at a shopping event to benefit the company and its costume department. This year, several designers have also contributed sketches of the classic characters of the opera, from Aida to Tosca. We’ve got your first look at sketches from Victoria Bartlett (whose take on Puccini’s Turandot is above), Jason Wu, Peter Som, Behnaz Sarafpour, and Narciso Rodriguez, which go on view on the auction block at the annual event on May 20.

Designers Against Jake, Juergen And Marc Forever, And More…


Phillip Lim, Behnaz Sarafpour, Chris Benz, Band of Outsiders, Costello Tagliapietra, and Erin Fetherston are some of the 28 designers taking legal action against bankrupt Chicago boutique Jake. They may not get their money back, but they’re loving their newfound community. That’s sweet, but we imagine they’d really love a non-bouncing check. [WWD]

Mike Albo visits affordable work gear emporium Syms and finds purses Lauren Conrad could have designed. If she was drunk and wielding a crayon. [NYT]

Juergen Teller and Marc Jacobs, eleven years and still going strong. The photog revisits the hits from his decade-plus collaboration with Jacobs, from the “hardcore” Dakota Fanning ads to—his personal favorite—shots of a naked Charlotte Rampling. [The Moment]

Included in the Telegraph‘s “ten anti-trends for winter” must-buy classics are the top, the skirt, and the trousers. Why, yes, we were planning on incorporating those somewhere in our fall wardrobe. Thanks! [Telegraph]
