The baseball cap: It’s the sartorial hallmark of America’s pastime. And while MLB’s current doping scandal may have muddied the sport it represents, the hat itself is going strong, popping up everywhere from the showroom to the stage.
Earlier this summer, Cara Delevingne, long a champion of the casual cap, wore a zigzagged snapback to Glastonbury. Just this past weekend, both Sky Ferreira and Angel Haze donned baseball hats at Lollapalooza, the latter looking particularly on point with her J.W. Anderson Spring ’14 menswear top and brash Versace medallion.
As is often the case with It girls and their wardrobes, parallels appeared on the runway. For Resort 2014, DKNY showed a black-and-white version of the accessory with a gold lamé bomber. Max Mara, too, employed the topper, pairing it with a vivid chevron top and pink cropped pants.
In 1992, DKNY unveiled its giant, six-story-high black-and-white wall at 600 Broadway. Depicting a pre-9/11 skyline inside the DKNY logo, the mural reached what many would describe as icon status—it was a landmark for tourists and locals alike that marked the entrance to Soho. In 2008, however, Abercrombie & Fitch, or, more specifically, Hollister, acquired retail space in the building, and plans to remove the image were put into action. This month, the wall, or rather, its sentiment, returns. But instead of posting it at Houston and Broadway, Karan asked a host of artists to reinterpret the facade, and their iterations have been erected in ten cities around the world. Dubbed #DKNYArtworks, the project includes a series of installations in cities such as Tokyo, Paris, Dubai, Kuwait City, Seoul, and, of course, New York—residents have no doubt seen the red, black, and white work by HOW & NOSM in Times Square, or California-born artist Amy Gartrell’s creations at Yankee Stadium, JFK Airport, the DKNY Madison Avenue Flagship, and on the Hampton Jitney. Colorful renderings of the Big Apple inside the DKNY logo have also been placed in London (graffiti artist ROID is projecting his DKNY logo on Big Ben), Shanghai (Nod Young has mounted a billboard and LED installation on Nanjing West Road), Hong Kong (multidisciplinary artist Calvin Ho put his illustration skills to work at three locations), and Milan (photographer and fine artist Maurizio Galimberti produced a billboard). A selection of the international signage debuts here. Continue Reading “DKNY Goes Round the World” »

The age-old problem: How to hold that icy-cold flute of Champagne? This season’s solution: The new Veuve Clicquot and Marc Jacobs collaborative gloves ($35), which hit Marc Jacobs stores and marcjacobs.com tomorrow. They’re the latest in the Champagne-maker’s annual winter “Clicquot in the Snow” series, which teams with fashion and beauty brands on exclusives (in the past, DKNY and cosmetics guru Fresh) and touts the bubbly as an apres-ski drink. Luckily, no slopes are required. Regrettably, no Champagne is included with purchase.
