Garage‘s House Of Horrors


“We got so used to Lily Donaldson’s head being so big that when we looked at the real Lily, her head seemed oddly small,” Nick Knight told at London’s Gagosian Gallery over the weekend, where he was celebrating the launch of Dasha Zhukova’s new magazine, Garage, along with Donaldson (who was on crutches from a horse accident), Dinos Chapman, Harvey Weinstein, Rachel Zoe, Jefferson Hack, and Nicholas Kirkwood. “But she [Donaldson] was a real sport and didn’t mind all that digital messing about.” Knight was referring to the spread of the magazine in which he digitally alters Lily into a demented inhabitant of Chapman’s dollhouse of horrors.

“I built my two daughters dollhouses when they were young, and this was my interpretation of that,” Chapman, one of the city’s most talked-about artists, said. More mental asylum than dollhouse, the set from the photo shoot on display was full of schlock horror toys, adolescent-angst graffiti (“I hate you” and “I am a vandal”), eight-foot crayons, and fraying primary color sofas. Chapman added, “I spliced in a bit of Café Flesh in there, you know, the cult art-house, sci-fi porn film. I know some will protest, but what can I say? Bring it.”

Pirelli’s New Calendar Girls, Dasha Zhukova’s Provocative Mag, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Son Tries His Hand At Modeling, And More…

Dasha Zhukova’s new magazine, Garage, will make its official debut during fashion week, but The New York Times got a glimpse of it, dubbing it “one of the most intriguing magazines to come along in years.” Zhukova created three different covers, one of which is a Hedi Slimane photo of a nude model’s crotch, covered by a Damien Hirst-designed green butterfly sticker with a tattoo underneath.

Illesteva’s Postcard From Moscow


Daniel Silberman and Jus Ske, the duo behind Illesteva eyewear, moonlight as DJs and dudes-about-town. They recently hit Moscow to spin at a summer party for former Pop editrix and current gallery doyenne Dasha Zhukova and check out her Garage Center for Contemporary Culture. Below, the duo sends back a few snaps from their travels.

We arrived in Moscow on Sunday afternoon. After checking in at our hotel, we went to say hello to our friends at Moscow’s leading boutique, Le Form, which introduced Russia to brands such as Margiela, Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester, and many more. We also checked out the new James Turrell exhibition at Dasha’s Garage Center for Contemporary Culture. It’s a truly amazing show and a must-see if you’re in Moscow. The entire art scene is really booming in the city right now. Later, our driver took us to Strelka on the river, which is Moscow’s best restaurant to watch the sunset—which, during the summer, happens at around 11 p.m. Our friends Anja, Anna, and Natalia were all in town for a shoot, so they joined us for dinner and drinks.

The next day, Jus Ske deejayed Dasha’s party at an estate in the suburbs of Moscow. She got what felt like the whole of Moscow there—including Olya Thompson, Vika Gazinskaya, Sanam Salek, Hunter Soik, and Natasha Goldenberg. The party went until 4 a.m.—and after that, why bother going to sleep? We went instead with our friends Hunter and Karolina to watch the sun rise in the Red Square.

LimoLand Is The New Black


“If you walk around New York, men are usually wearing black, then white or gray if you are very happy,” said Jean “Johnny” Pigozzi, the French-born business mogul-turned-designer behind LimoLand. “I want to change that.”

LimoLand is a good place to start. The wildly colorful printed sportswear line is anything but black and white, and it now has a permanent home: a new boutique in the Meatpacking District in New York City, which Pigozzi (left) opened with a bash on Friday night. (Pigozzi says womenswear will be the next task to tackle on his agenda: “I am going to do hoodies and polo shirts and younger things, but don’t worry, I am not going to make ball gowns and silk clothes.”)

On Friday, the designer himself was sporting a bright blue hoodie from his line, and no sooner had a host of his famous friends—including Brett Ratner, Dasha Zhukova, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, and Bob Pittman—walked in the door than they were swathed in Technicolor. The clothes may be loud and the festive accommodations may have recalled a frat-basement bash—tequila shots courtesy of Casa Dragones and a burger dinner on offer at a self-styled dive bar across the street—but the spirit of the line is still plenty luxe. André Balazs, a poster boy for the label, traded his black sport jacket in exchange for a printed navy hoodie. “I was admiring it and I was just told it’s called ‘Hedge Fund,’ ” he said with a big smile.

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. His “Under the Sea” tree (left) will go up in the hotel on November 25. [WWD]

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]
