Have Your Self A Lanvin Little Christmas, Watching Fashion’s Watchers, And More…

-------

The holiday season, apparently, begins now. Christmas is fast upon us, and two of Paris’ best are leading the charge: Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz was at Printemps to debut the his-and-hers puppet windows he’s created, while John Galliano’s designs for Claridge’s Christmas tree have just been released.

Congrats to the lucky winners at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards last night. Alber Elbaz—who can’t seem to take a wrong turn these days—bested Phoebe Philo, Christopher Bailey, and Isabel Marant for most influential designer of the year, Acne took most influential design team honors, and U.K. youth label People Tree was named most influential label.

Over at Pop, meanwhile, editor Dasha Zhukova has resigned, moving on to a hazily defined project in the “digital space.” [Catwalk Queen via Racked]

PYTs Kick Off LFW

-------


London has been in an uncharacteristic slumber for the past few months, and all that pent up demand for action and partying exploded at the Lacoste VIP Trunk show at Claridge’s Saturday afternoon. An A-list of new generation stars—Daisy Lowe, Amber Le Bon (daughter of Duran Duran’s Simon), Pixie Geldof, Olga Kurylenko, and Rosamund Pike—clinked champagne glasses while bedraggled fashion journos from New York checked into the hotel for the kick-off to London Fashion Week. So what is everyone looking forward to this week? Model and budding designer Ben Grimes, Richard Nicoll’s muse, had an answer: “Definitely Julien Macdonald. There are so many exciting things going on in his company, and everybody is dying to see how it will all translate. With what is going on in the economy, he just represents hope.” Cheers.
