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.

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” »

London-based designer Hakaan Yildirim, who was slated to show his Spring 2013 collection tomorrow in Paris, has been forced to call off his show because the clothes were lost by the courier company. The Turkish-born up-and-comer, who won the ANDAM Award in 2010 and debuted his Hakaan line at London fashion week the same year (with the likes of Kate Moss, Emmanuelle Alt, and Carine Roitfeld all in the front row), is reportedly remaking the show pieces for editors and buyers to view in the showroom. The clothes will be available for editorial requests as usual.
