By The Grace Of Lace, Skyler’s Twitter Debut, A Taylor Tribute Gains Steam, And More…


Club Monaco is officially on the hunt for a new member. The retailer announced today that it has parted ways with its men’s designer, Thom Browne alum Tim Farah. [WWD]

In happier news, Rachel Zoe has introduced the world to her baby, Skyler Morrison Berman. How? By Twitter, of course. [Fashionologie]

One happy upshot of the return to ladylike chic? A boon for the traditional French lacemaking industry, as The Wall Street Journal reports. (At left, a fetish-y take on lace at Marc Jacobs.) [WSJ]

And speaking of Zoe progeny, her former assistant/sidekick/BFF Brad Goreski has big news of his own: a brand-new, bouncing…TV show. Bravo has announced it will start production on It’s a Brad World. [Just Jared]

Will Liz Taylor get a West Hollywood street named after her? According to L.A. Weekly, requests are flooding city offices—though, as Gawker notes, fitting Elizabeth Taylor Hilton Wilding Todd Fisher Burton Burton Warner Fortensky Ave. on a street sign may pose a bit of a challenge. [Gawker]

Feeling “Happy, Love, Drunk” At Soho’s Newest Hotspot


The spitting weather wasn’t enough to kill the Mondrian SoHo’s buzz last night. Russell Simmons, Prabal Gurung, Richard Chai, Thakoon and Eve stopped all by to celebrate the hotel’s official opening, dine at chef Sam Talbot’s Imperial No. Nine restaurant, catch a set by The Kills’ Jamie Hince and Allison Mosshart (above), and then head for the hotel’s club, Mister H.

Prabal Gurung, stylist Brad Goreski, and friends showed off their dance moves under a neon sign that reads—in Chinese letters—”Happy, Love, Drunk.” Overdo it on that last one and you might be tempted to take a turn on the newly-installed stripper pole, but you’d have to compete with the evening’s hired entertainment. A group of scantily clad dancers were wrapped around it.

“I kind of feel like I am in L.A.,” confessed Ally Hilfiger, as she gazed at the decadent chandeliers and a table topped with crystal vases of all shapes and sizes. “I am a big fan of the Mondrian—their bedding is very soft, which I appreciate as a designer.” Goreski, for his part, had meant to leave after dinner and make his way home to to his own bed—lthe better to rest up for a “big job on Saturday”—but the call of the Mister H after-party was too strong, and off he went.

The evening’s DJ, Mia Moretti, also had to soldier on. The dance floor was still full, after all, and after that? “I’m off to Austin tomorrow morning for South by Southwest and I can’t even look at my schedule past then!”

Down The Rabbit Hole…


Halloween: the new three-day weekend. The fashion set donned its costumes (what, you think professional dressers content themselves with just one?) for 72-plus hours of revelry. And while some were skimpy and some were envy-inducing (we’re looking at you, Karmen Pedaru in Altuzarra), many were flat-out great, from Eddie Borgo as Pee-wee Herman to Prabal Gurung as Marc Jacobs to Brad Goreski as blogger Tavi Gevinson to Eugenie Niarchos as Alice (of Wonderland fame, complete with white rabbit). Check out our complete Halloween roundup, and let us know: Who had the best costume of the night?

Cardin Keeps On, Dries Gives One To The Guys, Brad Goreski To Start His Own Project, And More…


Pierre Cardin may be 88, but he isn’t slowing down. The designer is celebrating the sixtieth (!) anniversary of his label with his first runway show in a decade, and the kids are still picking up his pieces—Lady Gaga recently wore one of his dresses on a video shoot. “I have always designed very provocative clothes for young people,” the designer told WWD. Like those young whippersnappers, the Beatles and the Stones. [WWD]

Dries Van Noten showed his women’s collection in Paris today, but his male fans have reason to celebrate, too: The designer has just opened his first standalone men’s store in the city of light, which will be the only place to sell his new evening collection. [WWD]

Stop the presses—er, reality-TV cameras: Brad Goreski (left), the bespectacled, 33-year-old stylist assistant/BFF to Rachel Zoe, is leaving her company to branch off on his own. [People StyleWatch]

And Daisy Lowe may be a fashion plate now—and the face of the newly-relaunced (again) Biba—but she wasn’t always into clothes. “My mother always wore fishnets and see-through dresses, so I rebelled against clothes for a long time,” she told The Telegraph. “I was like Saffy from Absolutely Fabulous—I would tuck my vest into my knickers.” [Telegraph]

A European-American Exchange, The Zelig Of Fashion Week, Models Hit The Books, And More…


Rumor has it that Courtney Love (pictured) is headed to Paris to perform at V and Printemps’ Paris fashion week party. If her performance there is anything like her performances here, audiences can expect lateness, vitriol, and Lady Gaga covers. Should be a smash! [WWD]

And while we’re sending our best over to Europe, rumors are swirling as well that one of its best may be headed over here. Giles Deacon shows his new Giles collection in London today, but he’s apparently casting about for a New York venue to show here—even as early as next season. [Fashionologie]

The New York Times takes a moment with Brad Goreski, the 33-year-old right hand of Rachel Zoe (and breakout star of her reality show, The Rachel Zoe Project). Goreski hit so many shows and events this New York fashion week—Lanvin on Fashion’s Night Out, shows by Simon Spurr and Michael Bastian, the tenth anniversary party—that the paper of record has dubbed him “the Zelig of fashion week.” Well, he does have those glasses… [NYT]

With all of the time they spend backstage in hair and makeup, no surprise that models have a lot of time for reading. Racked collects the best of models-with-books, including runway walkers like Tao, Nimue, and Katharina reading Faulkner, Evelyn Waugh, Lord of the Rings, and (ahem!) [Racked]
