July is coming to a close and for many of us, days at the beach this summer are numbered. I already have my go-to suits and oversized sun hats for this summer, but I’m still on the hunt for the perfect beach tote. While designers (and by default, editors) have been gravitating toward more compact, small bags in recent seasons, the beach tote is generally the exception. Sunscreen, towels, brush, summer reads, sarong—they all have to fit in there. Above, a few of my top picks for toting to Montauk this weekend.
Clockwise from top left, above: Missoni Lipki tote, $315, available at www.net-a-porter.com; Newbark weekend woven canvas and leather tote, $950, available at www.net-a-porter.com; Matador Direct Gang Gang Dance tote, $25, available at www.openingceremony.us; Club Monaco tote, $49, www.clubmonaco.com for store locations; eBay x CFDA “You Can’t Fake Fashion” tote, $35, available at www.fashionvault.ebay.com.
Club Monaco is officially on the hunt for a new member. The retailer announced today that it has parted ways with its men’s designer, Thom Browne alum Tim Farah. [WWD]
In happier news, Rachel Zoe has introduced the world to her baby, Skyler Morrison Berman. How? By Twitter, of course. [Fashionologie]
One happy upshot of the return to ladylike chic? A boon for the traditional French lacemaking industry, as The Wall Street Journal reports. (At left, a fetish-y take on lace at Marc Jacobs.) [WSJ]
And speaking of Zoe progeny, her former assistant/sidekick/BFF Brad Goreski has big news of his own: a brand-new, bouncing…TV show. Bravo has announced it will start production on It’s a Brad World. [Just Jared]
Will Liz Taylor get a West Hollywood street named after her? According to L.A. Weekly, requests are flooding city offices—though, as Gawker notes, fitting Elizabeth Taylor Hilton Wilding Todd Fisher Burton Burton Warner Fortensky Ave. on a street sign may pose a bit of a challenge. [Gawker]
Club Monaco continues its streak of high-profile lookbook and campaign shooters this season, hiring Ryan McGinley to lens its Spring 2011 ads. It’s tapped top talent, too: Lauren Hutton, Lou Doillon, Tali Lennox, and the Virgins’ Donald Cumming all appear in the spots. But they’ve also got starring roles in the behind-the-scenes video by Tracy Antonopoulos debuting exclusively here on Style.com. Cumming stars not as a rocker frontman or a model, but as a wayward videographer named Johnnie who, while napping during a shoot, dreams of a Doillon romance. And when he wakes up…well, let’s just say dreams can come true.
It seems like all of a sudden, summer’s here—the official start date (June 21, if you’re counting) is a few days off, but the temperatures are up, the days are long, and, barometer of barometers, Club Monaco is once again hosting its on-site beach boutiques at select locations. The retailers warm-weather collections are all on offer, of course, but we’re just as excited for the addition of some a few new lines, too. Bikinis from Paula Hermanny’s ViX swimwear line, in particular, are sexy staples direct from Brazil—a country that knows a thing or two about looking good on the beach. In the throes of World Cup fever, it’s a good reminder that Kaka isn’t its only fine-looking export.
Club Monaco’s beach boutiques are now open at select locations, including stores in NYC, Boston, L.A., Miami, and Santa Monica. For more information, visit www.clubmonaco.com.
