Daria Does “Gypset”

-------



If you haven’t been living down under, you may not recognize the name Oroton, the Aussie label that’s been going strong since 1938. But that may change soon, thanks to a very recognizable face: Daria Werbowy. The brand has signed Daria to front its Spring ’10 campaign, inspired by the jet-setting, boho lifestyle—a.k.a. the “gypset.” Personally, we’d say the glamorous Werbowy’s more jet than gyp, but we imagine the super’s diehard fans will be too smitten with her new shots to care.

Hollister Bugs Out, Daria Does YSL, Mad For Mochilas, And More…

Stay far, far away: The Soho Hollister store is infested with bedbugs. The store is closed while the label attempts to de-louse (or, we guess, de-bedbug-ify). [Huffington Post]

It’s been speculated about for months, but Naomi Campbell (and, for the record, Mia Farrow) will be called to testify at the war crimes trial of Liberia’s Charles Taylor, who allegedly gave Campbell a large diamond. [WSJ]

The latest It bag—the mochila, the traditional satchel created by the Wayuu tribeswomen of Colombia and Venezuela? They’re coming to Barneys, they’ve already sold out of J.Crew, and Proenza Schouler’s doing PS1′s in mochila fabrics for pre-fall. So, in a word—yes. [NYT]

Fashion’s Night Out Stages Its First-Ever Runway Show

-------

And you thought last year’s Fashion’s Night Out was a big production. This time around, in addition to all of the in-store activities; the designer, model, and celebrity appearances; and the spontaneous street parties on September 10, Vogue and SPEC Entertainment are producing an open-to-the-public fashion show. With 200-plus models, the September 7 extravaganza will be the biggest public fashion show New York (or at least the 1,500 guests that will fill the seats at Lincoln Center, pictured) has ever seen. The likes of Karlie Kloss, Chanel Iman, Raquel Zimmermann, and Daria Werbowy will show off key Fall trends. Tickets will go on sale this summer through the Lincoln Center box office, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the New York City AIDS Fund. In the meantime, stores interested in participating in Fashion’s Night Out can register as of today at www.fashionsnightout.com.

A Taste Of Home For Les Newyorkais

-------

Revelers who made it through the queue in the freezing cold, down four flights of stairs, and into the classic Parisian night spot Le Regine last night had some serious celebrating to do. “We’ve been working hard,” said Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon, one of the party’s co-hosts, of his crew’s rigorous fashion week. “Tonight we’re dancing.”

Even fashion’s workaholics took a break. Street shooter Tommy Ton put down his camera, he said, “for the first time this season,” joining a crowd that included designers Alexander Wang, Henry Holland (pictured), Matthew Williamson, Daria Werbowy, and Jen Brill. Erin Wasson, in a crinkly leather hat, joined Opening Ceremony’s Carol Lim and company at the see-and-be-seen table behind a few tubs of vodka on ice, while Lindsay Lohan holed up in a more Frank-and-Dino corner, playing coy—well, as coy as one can play in a snowball-white fur hat during an impromptu amateur photo session. The New York, New York party has traveled around the international fashion weeks—it’s already made a London appearance—and it’s already developed a few standbys. It just wouldn’t feel like home without dancing on the banquettes, a haze of smoke (not always officially approved), and, of course, “Empire State of Mind.”

Saving The Best For Last

-------

Magnus Berger and Tenzin Wild always throw The Last Magazine‘s fashion week parties at the tail end of the week—the time, in other words, when designers and editors can see the light at the end of the tunnel and are especially eager to kick off their six-inch heels and let off some steam. That’s just what they did last night at the mag’s fourth-issue launch party at Pravda.

“I first came to New York in 1998, and one of the first places I went to was Pravda,” Berger explained. “It’s part of a different era but it feels new, and a lot of my friends had never been here. Our parties are not really about doing anything big or fancy. We just want to have fun.” He doth protest too much. “Magnus always throws the best parties,” said model Julia Stegner, surveying the tiny, tightly packed dance floor. Fueled by male models-cum-DJs James Penfold and Simon Bolzoni, Daria Werbowy and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld held court there for quite some time. Kate Bosworth took a few spins before retreating to a corner booth. New York City Ballet principal Benjamin Millepied probably could have taught all in attendance a thing or two, but he and his date, Natalie Portman, stayed on the sidelines.

“You need lots of alcohol,” Stegner said of what makes a great fashion week party, before adding, “I’m not partaking.” Turns out Stegner was leaving for Italy early in the morning for work (“It’s not so good for the face”). But the work was done for attendees Richard Chai, Phillip Lim, Joseph Altuzarra, and Alexander Wang. The latter (pictured with Stegner at another fashion week event)—who knows a thing or two about throwing raucous after-parties—may have sat this season out, but he has something up his chenille sleeve. “We’re saving all of our ammunition for September. You can always do bigger and better things in September.”
