Colleen Atwood’s Fantastical Confections Are Coming to a Store Near You

-------

Colleen Atwood

Colleen Atwood has made a name for herself creating confectionary garments for films such as Memoirs of a Geisha, Alice in Wonderland, and Chicago. She even won a CFDA award last year for her work in costume design. Now, thanks to a new partnership with high-end denim vets Citizens of Humanity, her flair for everyday opulence will be up for sale. This fall, the three-time Oscar-winning costume designer is debuting a collection of luxury handbags produced at the same Italian factory behind Chanel’s arm candy. Three timeless shapes, including an envelope clutch (the Chiara), a structured backpack (the Sojourner), and a shockingly roomy pochette (the Scala), have been rendered in leather, lizard, and haircalf. Her inspiration for the pieces? “It was a combination of vintage-inspired design and having something that could work for all kinds of people and all kinds of functions,” Atwood said. “As a career woman who travels all the time and works, I have the practical aspect of what a person needs. Then I’m exposed to glamorous and vintage pieces. It’s a combination of my real life and my film life together in what I create, so I’ve taken elements from both.” While these purses come at a price point that’s decidedly not par for the Citizens of Humanity course, the partnership isn’t as unlikely as one might expect. Per Atwood: “They’ve been incredible and supportive and have been very great about collaborating—total artistic freedom, giving me the best resources I could have. It’s really been a great marriage.”

Colleen Atwood bags, $2,000 to $6,000. Available from October.

Twin Peaking Our Interest: An Overnight Chez David Lynch, And More Of The Day’s Top Stories

-------

David Lynch has recently shifted his focus from unsettling films and television to unsettling interiors. His members-only Club Silencio in Paris has become a gold-flecked destination among the fashion set, and he’s now lent his talents to a “David Lynch Signature Suite” at Paris’ Hotel Lutetia (pictured). Lynch describes the room, decorated with his own watercolor paintings, as “eerily normal.” Naturally. [Art Info]

Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood is no stranger to the film industry, having worked on the getups for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows, as well as Robert Marshall’s Memoirs of a Geisha, to name a few. Right now, however, it’s the costumes from her latest project, Snow White and the Huntsman (in theaters Friday), that has everyone buzzing. Through June 3, you can get an in-person look at them at a pop-up gallery in Hollywood. [WWD]

Gucci is the latest fashion brand to go green. The Italian label has launched a line of environmentally friendly shoes, designed by Frida Giannini for Sustainable Soles. The capsule collection consists of two styles (one for women and one for men), both made with biodegradable plastic. The shoes, some of which bear the brand’s signature GG motif, will hit flagships and Gucci.com at the end of June. [WWD]

Google pays tribute to a famed jeweler today with its ever-changing logo: its egg-esconced GOOGLE celebrates the birthday of Peter Carl Fabergé (1846-1920), who created gem-encrusted eggs for the Russian court. Fabergé himself has long since passed away, but his name is familiar again to fashion readers: His revived namesake company opened its first U.S. store this month. [Google]

Johnny Depp’s Big Head Causes Drama On Set, Plus More Of The Day’s Top News

-------

Tim Burton’s remake of Dark Shadows, starring Johnny Depp (pictured), hit theaters this past weekend. There has been plenty of buzz surrounding three-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood’s clothes for the film, but the L.A. Times recently learned the hardest part about putting the wardrobe together—finding the right pair of vintage sunglasses (a key wardrobe piece) for Depp, because apparently, heads back in 1972 were a bit smaller. [L.A. Times]

Bergdorf Goodman is showing its age—proudly. The store will kick off its 111th birthday festivities on Fashion’s Night Out (September 6), and continue the celebrations with a book, documentary film, and special collection of products from labels including Christian Louboutin, Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta, and more. [WWD]

Valentino Garavani, on the other hand, rang in his birthday over the weekend at a surprise party, complete with a (false) fire alarm, thrown in his honor by Giancarlo Giammetti; Anne Hathaway, Nacho Figueras, and Countess Georgina Brandolini d’Adda were all there to celebrate. [Page Six]

While the Costume Institute’s Schiaparelli/Prada exhibition is going strong here in New York, London is getting ready for a fashion display of its own. Opening tomorrow at the Victoria and Albert Museum, over 60 dresses from six decades will be on exhibit as part of Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950. The show, curated by Oriole Cullen and Sonnet Stanfill, features vintage gowns from Vivienne Westwood as well as designs straight off the runway from Antonio Berardi, Mary Katrantzou, and Erdem. [Art Info]

Italian fashion designer Romeo Gigli is staging a(nother) comeback. Gigli, one of the hottest names in eighties fashion, is returning (despite his ongoing legal battles with previous owners) with a men’s and women’s collection for Asian retailer Joyce, debuting on the chain’s Web site July 1.
