In the past year, Russian It girls Miroslava Duma, Ulyana Sergeenko, and Elena Perminova have made their mark on street-style blogs worldwide. But right now we have our eye on former Hello Russia editor and current fashion director at Kova & T, Natasha Goldenberg. Naturally, Goldenberg, who recently launched her own line, Tzipporah, has a covetable look just as eye-catching as her style sidekick and best friend, Miroslava. Tommy Ton snapped Goldenberg while getting into a car between menswear shows in Milan. She was sporting an oversize camel coat with striped Carven trousers. Get the look with pieces from Marni, Jimmy Choo, Boy by Band of Outsiders, and more below.

Eight floors. 50,000 square feet. “A monster megaplex” featuring shop-in-shops by the likes of Alexander Wang, Boy by Band of Outsiders, D.A.P. Books, Other Music, Trash & Vaudeville, and The Row. Welcome to Opening Ceremony, Japan. The store OC founders Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have built in the heart of Tokyo’s Shibuya shopping district is no effing joke, to put it bluntly. Opening on the 30th, the store features “all the classic Opening Ceremony product,” as Leon says, plus a bevy of launch exclusives, the aforementioned shop-in-shops, plus a few others, and a restaurant called Potluck that’s about to make “brunch” trendy in Japan. “We wanted to focus on the experience as much as the merchandise,” Leon explains. “Every floor has its own point of view. Going through the store is kind of like getting a tour of American architecture throughout the ages—like, the first floor is Santa Fe/Southwestern, then there’s a floor referencing sixties modernist architecture, and another one that’s seventies hippie…” There is also, Leon notes, a floor made to look like a typical American office. Those cubicles ought to make an interesting backdrop for the Opening Ceremony opening bash, at which Strokes-man Julian Casablancas will be playing songs off his forthcoming solo LP. The party’s not until the 29th, so there’s still plenty of time to book a flight.
Scott Sternberg just sent us an e-mail with links to his imaginative re-think of the lookbook. There are a few hazy Polaroids of this season’s too-cool-for-school celebrity tomboy Kirsten Dunst (last season’s was Michelle Williams), along with some sharper shots of Sternberg’s Spring 2009 collection that you can also see here. But we’re particularly fixated on the video—a soundless montage of Kiki dressed in Boy’s louche, preppy Spring collection walking across a white seamless at an almost dreamy clip that’s about as far as you can get from the Karlie Kloss klomp (sic) or Gisele Bündchen’s famed strut. No, Dunst has more of an amble that’s by turns sexy, down-the-aisle formal, and even sort of goofy. It’s not ideal for, say, doing market editor requests, and if it were a fashion show—you might rip your Moleskine to shreds in frustration. Nonetheless, at the comfort of your desk, there’s something coolly hypnotic about it. Check it out at boy.bandofoutsiders.com
