Abbey Lee’s Latest Role: Mountain Maiden, Plus More Of The Day’s Top Stories…

-------

Hats are having a real moment right now, so maybe that’s why Abbey Lee Kershaw (left) has tried on three new ones: tambourinist, keyboardist, and vocalist for her band, Our Mountain. Their debut single is now available. Watch your back, Florence Welch? [Modelinia]

Speaking of fashionably outré divas, Björk, too, has a new project: A revamped Web site, designed as a teaser to her upcoming multimedia spectacle, Biophilia. [Pitchfork]

Karl Lagerfeld is a well-known bibliophile, but his latest project would strain even the largest libraries: a 12-volume edition of the last German philosopher with a world view as domineering as the Kaiser’s own: Friedrich Nietzsche. [WWD]

Rich and fabulous? Forget packing for Cannes, in that case. Just drop by Louis Vuitton’s new pop-up shop on La Croisette, opening just in time for the film fest. [Vogue U.K.]

Offering discounts on guilty pleasures like seaweed body wraps, designer dresses, and Pilates classes hasn’t turned a profit yet for Gilt Groupe Inc., but the company has recently been valued at $1 billion, thanks to funds raised from investors.

The last time we saw the Swarovski-encrusted capsule collection created by the 2010 CFDA Swarovski Award nominees, it was on display in the window of Bergdorf Goodman. The CFDAs have come and gone, but those one-off pieces can be yours—provided you’re a dab hand with the mouse. On Wednesday, items from eight of the nominated designers (Joseph Altuzarra, Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, Simon Spurr, Richard Chai, Eddie Borgo, Alexander Wang, and Dana Lorenz) will go on sale on Gilt Groupe. Prices begin at $1,200, but the proceeds go to a good cause, the CFDA Foundation’s educational initiatives. With items like Alexander Wang’s Rocco bag (pictured)—its bottom dotted with Swarovski crystals—and only one of each on offer, we think they may just set a record for fastest online sellout ever. You had a good run, Momofuku Ko. Continue Reading “From Bergdorf’s To Your Browser” »

Surf’s Up, Gaga’s Tour, And More…

Lady Gaga’s upcoming Kanye-free tour will be “the most beautiful, expensive-looking, delicious show.” Would you doubt this woman? [Rolling Stone]

Surfing-inspired gear was a big story on the Spring runways, but Cynthia Rowley, a longtime surfer, was presumably ahead of the trend. Cynthia Rowley for Roxy, her new line of wet suits, board shorts, and dresses (for the all-important post-surf outfit), will be available in March at Barneys and Colette. Le surf, c’est chic. [WWD]

Buying fake goods with real money has long been an online shopper’s guilty pleasure, but Second Life has seen an increase in recession-era spending; in fact, “acquisitive lust rages unabated.” We’d rather save up for the real stuff, but go ahead, blame credit card debt on your avatar. [NYT]

Gilt Groupe’s new site exclusively for men launches today. Online shopping knows no gender bias, so load up on your favorite menswear. [WWD]
