Count Lisa Perry among the score of Coca-Cola fans in fashion (Marc Jacobs—this year’s Diet Coke creative director—sent Georgia May Jagger down his Spring runway sporting a sweatshirt embroidered with the wave found on a classic can of Coke, and the recognizable logo was also splashed onto sequined tanks and tees at Ashish). “I literally used to drink Coca-Cola for breakfast and with every meal after. I love the iconic nature of the brand and its presence in pop art,” said Perry, who was recently tapped by LEITZES&CO to work with Coca-Cola on a limited-edition glass for the holidays. Other participants in this season’s designer drinkwear series included Henry Holland, Garance Doré, and artists Qian Qian and Craig Redman. Perry initially approached the project wanting to do “a very recognizable ‘Lisa Perry’ image on the glass. We first drew up sketches of girls in my dresses, but as the collaboration moved on, we realized that one graphic word (“Enjoy”) was going to be bolder and more universal,” she told Style.com. “One thing we knew was that it had to be colorful!” The effervescent result is a perfectly collectible tumbler ($18) that would make for an ideal hostess gift. It will be available, beginning December 9, at Lisa Perry’s Madison Avenue store and online. The sweetest part about the partnership? Coca-Cola made a donation to the New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Perry’s behalf.
The tired cliché that fashion doesn’t eat is weakening every day. The latest assault on its reign comes courtesy of Kerry Diamond (by day, PR executive at Coach; by night, partner and co-owner of three bustling Brooklyn restaurants) and Claudia Wu (principal of the graphic design firm Oprhan, founder of Me Magazine) and their new food-meets-fashion biannual, Cherry Bombe. It may have the distinction of being the first culinary journal with a Karlie Kloss cover.
Diamond and Wu (above) are the definition of multi-hyphenate multitaskers, but at Cherry Bombe‘s Jo Malone London-sponsored launch party last night at the Spotted Pig’s semisecret third-floor test kitchen, she shrugged off questions of how she’d managed to put together a full magazine while juggling her other commitments. (Questioner finds his hands full with merely a biannual magazine and Web site to contend with, let alone a second job or a restaurant empire.) “Everyone says that, but it’s not like I’m there cooking or washing the dishes,” she laughed. “My boyfriend works at night. No kids, no pets.” Anyway, she went on, “It really was a labor of love in the truest sense of the phrase. There was also kind of a mission behind this. We really want to help all these great women in the industry get exposed a little bit more, and build a little bit more of a community.” Continue Reading “Jobs, Restaurants, and Now a Magazine—It’s Just the Cherry on the Cake” »
“This is so stressful!!!” Garance Doré wrote on her blog today. The reason: For the first time since she began posting her expressive fashion illustrations six years ago, Doré’s work will be available in her new online boutique. Starting today, fans can order posters of Doré’s favorite drawings from her site, like “The Last Smoke” or “Belle de Jour” for only $40 a pop—a fine addition to a holiday gift list. And beginning next week, limited-edition signed prints will be available for purchase. If she’s stressed out now, just wait until she’s got piles upon piles of prints to sign.

The CFDA train steams ever forward—as last night’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund announcement party makes abundantly clear—but this morning, Style.com’s editors were revisiting one of the organization’s earlier glories: the 2012 CFDA Awards. We’re happy to announce that Style.com’s CFDA Awards coverage, for which we partnered with American fashion’s de facto governing body, won a MIN Award for best special section at the annual ceremony this morning. We won’t dwell too long on back-patting and congratulations. Instead, this seems like the perfect moment to take a spin back through some of the features and interviews we conducted around the awards, from a Q&A with Andrew Rosen on how fashion will move forward to a group chat with Scott “The Sartorialist” Schuman and Garance Doré on the similarities (and differences) in their process. And if there’s anything better to brighten up a chilly Wednesday than a visit with the devoted acolytes of Comme des Garçons (like Carolyn Wade, left), we haven’t found it.
