Borgo Goes For Gold

-------

Eddie Borgo's Gold CuffEddie 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.

Motherhood, The Roitfeld Way

-------

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” »

The Holy Mother And Child—Mariacarla Edition

-------


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” »

Fashion’s Most Multi Multi-Tasker Adds A New Gig

-------

Carine Roitfeld—who, since her departure from Paris Vogue, has worked with V, Barneys, and launched her own CR Fashion Book—has taken on yet another new position: global fashion director at Harper’s Bazaar, where her V and CR collaborator Stephen Gan is creative director. Hearst announced today that Roitfeld will work on several stories a year for various international editions of the title, beginning in March. Meanwhile, CR Fashion Book will soldier on as well.

Fashion Week Ends, The Parties Don’t

-------

New York’s party scene never sleeps—even the day following a whirlwind fashion month. Last night, both the fashion and art worlds convened at Sotheby’s S2 Gallery to toast Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld’s latest opening. Dubbed Hue + Cry, the exhibition was the budding megadealer’s first stint as guest curator for the venerable auction house, comprising 30 contemporary works that highlighted the transformation of abstract expressionism. But unlike Restoin-Roitfeld’s typically hip gatherings—often warehouse-based and liquor-fueled—yesterday’s soirée was decidedly a toned-down affair, complete with passed hors d’oeuvres (OK, pigs in a blanket) and sauvignon blanc. “It feels a lot more uptown in here,” quipped V‘s Stephen Gan as he surveyed the mixed-media pieces by contemporary artists including Nicolas Pol, Jin Meyerson, and Angel Otero. Gan’s trek from Lower Manhattan to the uptown York Avenue space took nearly an hour, but the host didn’t mind the commute. “I live five minutes away,” Restoin-Roitfeld shrugged. Still, representing the downtown contingent were the likes of Vito Schnabel, Stavros Niarchos, and girlfriend Jessica Hart, who happily installed themselves near the open bar.

“The show really looks like him, doesn’t it?” mused proud mom Carine Roitfeld in head-to-toe Givenchy. Giovanna Battaglia, clad in Dolce & Gabbana and a sparkling Marni collar necklace, arrived from Paris just in time for her boyfriend’s big night. “This is such a prestigious location,” she
beamed. “Every time Vlad does something, it’s different and a step ahead.” As for the couple’s plans post-fashion month? “This is my first weekend off in a month and a half,” she told Style.com. “But I still have to work—there’s a shoot next week. It never ends.” To wit, at 9 p.m., the guests decamped to Casa Lever, where Aby Rosen, Kim Heirston, and Leo Koenig toasted the young curator with a private dinner.
