A Year Of Meisel, A Farewell To Don Hill’s, A Last Chance To Bid For Japan, A Look At Kate Hudson’s Heart, And More…


The next edition of everyone’s favorite calendar that almost no one actually receives—that’d be the racy Pirelli calendar, naturally—is reportedly now in the works. The photog of choice for the 2012 edition? Sources says it’s Steven Meisel. [Fashionologie]

A fond farewell to Don Hill’s, the legendary and then resurgent club that briefly became a fashion-world hub when Nur Khan and Paul Sevigny took it over from eponymous founder Don Hill. (Hill passed away at the end of last month.) Its next act: condos. Sigh. [Gawker]

Give Blake Lively credit for resourcefulness. When celebrity photographer Patrick McMullan stepped on her train at last night’s Time 100 gala and ripped it off, she raced to the bathroom, where she managed to repair it with a couple safety pins and a smile. And here we thought only Kate Moss had the superhuman ability to bounce back from a train-wreck like this one! [NY Mag]

As part of the CFDA’s effort to raise funds for Japan, the organization solicited designers and industry insiders to donate one-of-a-kind experiences—from a week’s stay at DVF’s Bahamas manse to a meeting with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen—for a charitable auction. If you’re still interested in bidding, today’s your last day; the sale ends tomorrow at 2 p.m. [CharityBuzz]

The latest designer to partner up with Chrome Hearts, the rock-inspired jewelry label that’s a favorite of Karl Lagerfeld’s and that has collaborated with Rick Owens, Comme des Garçons, and Chanel, is…Kate Hudson? That’s a ring from her new CH + KH collection, left. [WWD]

And worth a read today: Daily Front Row’s long Q&A with Simon Spurr CEO Tommy Fazio, who pays tribute to his two mentors in the menswear industry: Calvin Klein and Donna Karan. [Daily Front Row]

More On McQueen, Mouret And Schiffer On The Fringe, Remembering Don Hill, And More…


At the Telegraph, Hilary Alexander scores a preview of the forthcoming catalog for the Costume Institute’s Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, which will include images by Sølve Sundsbø (left), and an interview with the house’s current creative director, Sarah Burton, by’s Tim Blanks.

London’s Fashion Fringe competition has added two new judges to its roster: Joining Selfridges’ Anne Pitcher, London College of Fashion’s Roy Peach, and Metro‘s Bel Jacobs will be Roland Mouret and Claudia Schiffer. (Last year’s honorary chairman, John Galliano, was originally intended to serve for two years, but will not participate.) The program awards a package of cash, business advice, studio space, and mentorship worth an estimated £100,000; applications are open now, and those shortlisted for the prize will show their collections at London fashion week. [WWD]

Following last night’s wake for late club impresario Don Hill, a few well-placed friends, collaborators, and admirers—including Leigh Lezark, Paul Sevigny, Nur Khan, and Debbie Harry—share their memories of the man and the club. [T]

And tonight, rocker-approved menswear label By Robert James opens up its first-ever pop-up shop, in Tribeca’s John Allan’s grooming club. Which leads us to wonder: Will BRJ’s typically scruffy clientele emerge from the new shop fresh-faced and clean-shaven? [By Robert James]

Don Hill, R.I.P.


Thanks to a timely reboot from Nur Khan and Paul Sevigny—and the welcome reintroduction of a little good old grit to New York’s occasionally fussy nightlife scene—a new generation of party people discovered Don Hill’s, the west Soho club that’s once again a fixture of the fashion circuit. (In earlier days, it hosted Leigh Lezark and the Misshapes’ weekly party; before that, it was a rock stronghold.) The club that bears his name soldiers on, but Hill himself (left, with Sevigny) reportedly passed away last night in New York. Twitter is already streaming tributes and remembrances from friends like Moby, Bebe Buell, and drag eminences Miss Guy and Murray Hill, all of whom have passed through Hill’s doors. They’re still open—the legacy lives on.
