New Dali’s On Display, Thandie New To Louis Vuitton, The [David] Lauren and Lauren [Bush] Wedding Details, And More…
Unseen “intimate snaps” of Salvador Dalí and his wife, Gala, will be on display at a Dalí exhibit, set to open at Galeries Lafayette in Paris this Thursday. The Lancel-organized exhibit accompanies Lancel’s new Daligramme Collection bags, based on a Dalí-inspired bag the brand made in the seventies. [WWD]
British actress Thandie Newton is the latest star of Louis Vuitton’s Double Exposure film series. The project “creates two ‘portraits’ of the sitter”—one of them is a literal portrait and the other is a “portrait of the subject’s inner self.” [Vogue U.K.]
Berlin will host World Models Market, the first trade show for models, agencies, stylists and makeup artists, photographers, and bookers, in early November. Director Anna Sokolova says they expect up to 2,500 international models to flock to the city for the four-day event. [WWD]
David Lauren, son of Ralph Lauren, and Lauren Bush, granddaughter of former president George H.W. Bush, are getting married this weekend at the iconic designer’s 17,000-acre Colorado ranch. The Rocky Mountain ranch, called Double RL, also served as the backdrop for parts of John Wayne’s True Grit. [Page Six]
Philanthropically-minded designer and high-profile bride-to-be Lauren Bush is famous for carrying her burlap FEED totes to even the biggest-deal social events. But, she concedes, “I know not all women are inclined to do that.” So Bush has teamed up with Judith Leiber—”the industry standard” for evening clutches, she points out—to launch the line’s first-ever nighttime option.
The clutch retails for $495, far less than many of Leiber’s more elaborately bejeweled minaudières, and $250 from every bag sold will go to supporting global food-supply programs. In fact, each sale will provide 1,000 school meals for children in need, the largest amount yet associated with one of FEED’s products.
Available in gold or silver metallic linen, the bag goes on sale at Judith Leiber stores, on its Web site, and at Bergdorf Goodman’s Leiber boutique May 5. Bush has already carried it once—to the Accessories Council’s ACE Awards last fall, where she picked up the humanitarian prize—but she’ll give it the official launch on May 6, when she and her mother, Sharon, will visit Bergdorf Goodman for a Mother’s Day event. And now guests presumably also know what to carry when Bush ties the knot with fiancé David Lauren.

Step right up, dedicated shoppers: Chloe Sevigny’s Resort ’11 collection for Opening Ceremony goes on pre-sale today. Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like one of Sevigny’s Robert Mapplethorpe-print T-shirts. (But probably not for grandma’s stocking, as most of them are NSFW.) [Fashionologie]
In London, Mulberry’s on top. The resurgent brand tripled its profits in the last sixth months, was named Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, and is now opening a new Bond Street flagship that’s a giant 5,400 square feet. In other words: A whole lotta Alexas. [WWD]
And speaking of London fashion, Nicole Farhi’s named a new men’s designer: Massimo Nicosia, a veteran of Pringle of Scotland and Alessandro Dell’Acqua. [Vogue U.K.]
