Call it the Yayoi Kusama effect. George Clooney spotlighted an emerging trend when he turned up on the cover of W‘s Art Issue in a polka-dotted Giorgio Armani suit customized by the famed artist. (Her recent exhibition at David Zwirner’s gallery, I Who Have Arrived in Heaven, drew long lines.) We saw similar spots on Spring runways including Burberry Prorsum, Emanuel Ungaro, and Sportmax. Playful polka dots are popping up at this week’s Haute Couture shows, too. Raf Simons’ latest lineup for Dior featured intricate eyelets and cutwork details, while Marco Zanini put his own quirky spin on the quintessential spots at Schiaparelli. Cartoonish circles have also been popular in the new Pre-Fall collections, with designers like Stella McCartney and Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz making their respective points on cocktail attire and matching accessories.
The 68th Venice Film Festival kicked off yesterday with a screening of George Clooney’s political thriller, Ides of March. On the red carpet, the stars maxed out on this summer’s maxi trend with floor-length gowns, despite the heat.
Ides of March star Marisa Tomei chose a Marios Schwab dress in this season’s seventies-approved mustard; Diane Kruger went ethereal in an Elie Saab Couture gown; and Bianca Brandolini d’Adda went leopard, in a couture piece by her friend Giambattista Valli.
A few days ago, we called your attention to Miuccia Prada’s his-’n'-hers dressing, at her Spring 2011 men’s and women’s shows. Looks like there’s one famous couple that listened. Armani fans George Clooney and his girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, hit the designer’s runway show in Milan today in corresponding suits. Mr. Clooney opted for a peak-lapel number in dark navy with a rakish, tie-free black shirt, while his lady friend chose a shawl-collared one-button black tux with piped trousers. On some duos, this might seem too matchy-matchy for comfort, but we think George and Elisabetta have got the paired look down pat; the different proportions of their two looks, and the feminine jeweled touches on Canalis’, keep them from looking the same. Could it be that the couple that suit-shops together, stays together? Let us know what you think in the comments, below.
