Have you ever urgently needed a Lanvin frock at 2 a.m.? What about a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood pumps. No? Even so, we bet guests at The Mark hotel will find a host of reasons for late-night sartorial demands. Starting tomorrow, The Mark—the five-star Upper East Side lodging establishment favored by Carine Roitfeld, Russell Crowe, and Marc Jacobs, who decamped to the hotel during Sandy—will launch a partnership with Bergdorf Goodman. The union will solve any and all designer emergencies, providing guests with twenty-four-hour access to Bergdorf’s personal shoppers and, in some cases, after-hours admission to the store itself. “We make the impossible possible,” the hotel’s chief concierge, Isabelle Hogan, told Style.com. Hard-to-get items will also be readily available—for instance, if, say, a new Céline bag hits shelves in the morning, The Mark will give Todd Okerstrom—Bergdorf’s head of personal shopping—a call, and you can have it sitting on your bed by lunchtime. Delivery is, of course, complimentary.
The Mark hotel is located at 25 East 77th Street, New York, NY 10075.
The Cannes Film Festival got underway today. It’s a fabulous time for red carpet watchers; actresses play it faster and looser in the South of France than they seem to anywhere else—see our Cannes Diary for proof. But the fashion will really heat up on May 23, when amfAR is hosting its 20th anniversary Cinema Against AIDS event. The centerpiece of this year’s gala will be Carine Roitfeld’s The Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show, which, as its name suggests, will showcase one-of-a-kind dresses and jewels all in gold. Here, an exclusive look at three of the pieces in the show—a Prada hourglass number worthy of Liz Taylor (above), bracelets by Wright & Teague, and an Anndra Neen clutch (below)–as depicted by one of fashion’s favorite illustrators Lula Herself. LoveGold.com will host a livestream of the runway show, and Roitfeld and her CR Fashion Book team are posting daily Instagram updates on #lovegoldcannes. Continue Reading “Cannes’ Gold Rush” »
Eddie Borgo’s forte may be urban baubles with a bite, but having primarily worked with crystals and silver-, gunmetal-, and gold-plated metal since launching his eponymous range in 2008, it would seem the designer is embracing the even finer things in life—when it comes to materials, anyway. Tapped by Love Gold to create some one-of-a-kind pieces, Borgo has made his first foray into precious metals with a set of 18K gold cuffs. The wares are a decadent fusion of Borgo’s best-selling bracelets, including his cone bangles. Naturally, the designer’s got big plans for his new baubles’ debut—amfAR will be featuring the pieces in the Ultimate Gold Collection fashion show during its event in Cannes next week.
Before welcoming her first child, Romy, into the world last May, Julia Restoin Roitfeld knew next to nothing about babies. “I hadn’t even babysat before,” laughs the 32-year-old mom. “But I just tried to embrace pregnancy, have fun with it, have fun with the way I dressed, and celebrate it. And it gave me wings.” In fact, she’s so enjoyed every aspect of her maternal experience that she’s started a Web site about it. Launching today, Romy and the Bunnies (named for her daughter, who’s amassed quite a few bunny accoutrements; she also liked that it sounded like the name of a sixties rock band) is an editorial platform about relishing the joys of motherhood. “I wanted to merge my occupation as an art director with my new discoveries about being a mom,” Roitfeld told Style.com.
The site will feature everything from interviews with interesting mothers to daily updates from Roitfeld to drawings of her and Romy by fashion illustrator Lula of Herself magazine. “I didn’t want to post pictures of my baby, but I wanted to show how much fun I have getting her dressed, so Lula made her into a little character,” said Roitfeld, noting that her favorite Romy looks are “tiny pajamas” from Makié. One of the stories she’s most excited about will teach new moms how to re-create that pregnancy glow “in five minutes, with a baby in your arms.” Continue Reading “Motherhood, The Roitfeld Way” »
It’s friends and family at Givenchy this season. For the Spring ’13 campaign, shot by Mert & Marcus and styled by Carine Roitfeld and Katy England, Riccardo Tisci got intimate. “They are the people I love and who love me. It’s about family,” he said in a statement. “Something that is difficult to find in today’s world.” The Givenchy family (and now campaign) includes Kate Moss and Marina Abramović, among others, but it also includes a flesh-and-blood mini-family of its own: longtime Tisci muse Mariacarla Boscono and her own baby daughter, Marialucas. “When I look at this photo, I feel blessed with all the magic that surrounds me—my loves, my affections,” Boscono told Style.com. “Something very strong that embraces the love I feel for my daughter, so special and overwhelming that words would not be enough…and the concept of family that ties my soul with that of Riccardo, which stands in my life as something very, very special.” The campaign shot at left debuts exclusively on Style.com. A behind-the-scenes video debuts below. Continue Reading “The Holy Mother And Child—Mariacarla Edition” »
