The U.S. Open’s top-tier tennis matches are a chance for the fashion set to celebrate the last days of summer, as we prepare for the month-long marathon of runway shows ahead. Back in June at the Resort collections, we witnessed an uptick in kicky skirts and stretchy sheaths that would fit right in at the tournament. For our date courtside, we’d like to be wearing a deep green pleated leather mini from Alexander Wang or Viktor & Rolf’s flouncy thigh-grazer. As for the courts themselves, we could imagine trendsetting players like the Williams sisters, Ana Ivanovic, or Caroline Wozniacki (sadly, Maria Sharapova withdrew from the tournament last minute due to a shoulder injury) sporting Opening Ceremony’s sporty set or Preen’s fit-and-flare frock during a pre-match warm-up. Positively smashing.
Givenchy Steps Off The Catwalk, Stella Steps Onto The Court, Designers Dress Up The Garment Center, And More…-------
Don’t look for Givenchy on the couture calendar this July—Riccardo Tisci will show his Couture collection for the house (shaved down to ten looks to accommodate customization) by private appointment. Apparently, the most devoted couture clients, royals that they are, couldn’t attend the shows for security reasons, anyway. Yeah, we know how that story goes. (For good measure, here’s one more glimpse at Spring 2010 couture, left.) [WWD]
Rumor has it that Scott Campbell, tattoo artist to the stars, has designed bags for next week’s Louis Vuitton menswear show. Since “to the stars” includes “to Marc Jacobs,” we’ve heard stranger allegations. [Elle]
We’re still curious to see Venus Williams’ new outfit at Wimbledon (she promises it’ll be divisive), but the tourney’s shaping up to be quite the fashion event: Stella McCartney will dress Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki in her Adidas duds. [Vogue U.K.]
New Yorkers, swing by the Garment District today for a glimpse of designers installing their Ralph Pucci-created mannequins for the Fashion Center Sidewalk Catwalk. Jason Wu, Rebecca Taylor, Betsey Johnson, and Tommy Hilfiger are among the designers who are pitching in. [WWD]
Anna Dello Russo—fashion peacock extraordinaire—collaborated with Yoox on a line of T-shirts of (what else) her own classic outfits. They sold out in less than 2 days. [Thread NY]
