D&G Is D&G Is…You

-------

Few fashion labels are as tapped into social media as Dolce & Gabbana. The Italian design duo has over three million Facebook fans and 203,250 Twitter followers (and counting). Plenty of them have shed a virtual tear since the brand announced that it was discontinuing its lower-priced D&G collection, but Domenico and Stefano would rather go out with a bang than a whimper. To celebrate the line’s last season, they’re asking their devotees to create music videos for a remix of D&G’s very own dance song, “D&G Music,” made several years ago and featuring Stefano repeating the brand mantra: “D&G is D&G, D&G is love.” The call will go out today, and aspiring directors have until January 9 to deliver their clips to www.dandgisdandg.com, after which the designers will handpick their favorites to be edited into a final video to be debuted on YouTube. For more information on the project, watch this video below.


D&G, Done And Gone

Today’s D&G runway show in Milan will be the last from the Dolce & Gabbana line, WWD reports. The company announced it will instead incorporate D&G into its signature line. The designers say they hope it will bring “even more strength and energy to our collection.”

Where To Go On FNO

-------

It’s that time of year again: Fashion’s Night Out is just around the corner. It seems like every store and e-commerce site on earth has activities planned—find them all at www.fashionsnightout.com—but as for us, we’ve got our itineraries set. Below, a few New York favorites. See you there.

Bergdorf Goodman
BG has an all-star lineup of fashion folks making appearances at the store throughout the night, including Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, and Glenn O’Brien. But we’re most excited about the designer dog show, with Joseph Altuzarra, James Mischka and Mark Badgely, and Reem Acra all hitting the runways with their pets, judged by Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig.

Bloomingdale’s
Alexander Wang, GQ‘s Best New Menswear Designer of the Year, and the runners up, including Michael Bastian and Patrik Ervell, will be on hand to debut the capsule Dockers pieces they designed.

Bruce Weber
Legendary lensman Bruce Weber, Nan Bush, and friends will be on hand at The Standard Hotel Biergarten, where Weber is debuting limited-edition new underthings from his Weberbilt collection and serving vegan cookies from 6 to 9 p.m.

Chanel
At the 57th Street store, you can design your own monogrammed Chanel bag in the label’s very first handbag studio.

D&G
Dolce & Gabbana celebrates Fashion’s Night Out with personalized T-shirts featuring guests’ portraits shot by celebrity and backstage photographer Roxanne Lowit.

Kirna ZabĂȘte
Get there fast-exclusive designs from Altuzarra, Prabal Gurung, Peter Som, and Thakoon will be on sale at this high-end downtown shop. Did we mention a Proenza bag for $300?

Macy’s Herald Square
Three words: Anna Dello Russo. (OK, two more: Karolina Kurkova.)

Manolo Blahnik
Manolo, milkshakes, and SJP. That’s what’s on the docket at the designer’s 54th Street store, where Blahnik and Sarah Jessica Parker will be debuting their shoe collaboration. There will also be Manolo milkshake trucks stationed around the city throughout the day and night.

Marc Jacobs
The designer is hosting a carnival-themed block party on Bleecker Street. At Bookmarc, photographer David Armstrong will be signing copies of his new book, 615 Jefferson Avenue, and for those inclined to be in front of the lens, there will a photo booth in place. Plus, there’s a Spin-to-Win wheel.

Opening Ceremony at the Ace Hotel
This Argentine-inspired carnival, with live dancers (outfitted by Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, and Suno) and games, is sure to draw the usual hip OC gang. And an unusual addition: Miss Piggy, who will make a special appearance to unveil the new Muppets x OC collection, set to bow November 23.

Stella McCartney
Alexa Chung, Jen Brill, and Elettra Wiedemann will be manning the turntables at the designer’s Meatpacking district store. Where the cool girls go, a chic crowd is likely to follow. Sip on eco mojitos (how very Stella) and pick up her limited-edition FNO charm bracelet (above).

A Relative Unknown Walks The Red Carpet To Fashion Fame, Bye-Bye Bridge Lines, At Home With Ikram, And More…

Chances are, you don’t know the name Romona Keveza. That’s about to change. The Canadian-Lithuanian designer has never showed during New York fashion week, but she’s caught the eye of a growing number of red-carpet starlets, like Christina Hendricks, Lea Michele, and Julia Stiles. Next stop: the runway? [NYT]

Dolce & Gabbana (left) made waves recently when word got around that they were considering folding their lower-priced label, D&G, into their main collection. But according to WSJ‘s Christina Binkley, it’s much ado about nothing. With consumers nimbly mixing high and low without a second thought, are diffusion collections and bridge lines soon to be a thing of the past? [WSJ]

And here’s the photo evidence to prove what we’ve always suspected: It definitely wouldn’t be bad to spend a night on Ikram Goldman’s couch. [T]

No Show For Galliano, D&G’s Uncertain Future, Decarnin’s Disappearance, And More…

Is the end near for D&G? According to sources at Italian retailers, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are considering merging their secondary line with their main collection. [WWD]

Where in the world is Christophe Decarnin? That’s what the fashion world wanted to know when the designer didn’t emerge for his runway bow at today’s Balmain show. The rumors are flying that Decarnin was hospitalized for a mental breakdown—and according to Women’s Wear Daily, that may be partially true. The paper reports that Decarnin did not attend under doctor’s orders, having recently been released from a hospital where he was treated for depression. [WWD]

And it’s not news to anyone in the style world, but Prabal Gurung is a real character. That’s a distinction that’s being codified at USA Networks’ upcoming Character Approved Awards. Gurung shared his character-making early experiences with the network for the video above. [USA]
