Nina Ricci’s New Day, Louis Goes Live, And More…


Unlike last season, nothing will defy gravity at tonight’s Nina Ricci show. “I like wearable clothes,” says new designer Peter Copping. Though he does admit to a soft spot for Lurex. [WWD]

And over at Copping’s former gig, Louis Vuitton will stream its show live at 2:30 p.m. on its Facebook page. (That’s 8:30 a.m. EST for us fashion Cinderellas.) [Vogue U.K.]

Graeme Black is joining Hugo Boss as a creative consultant for its women’s label. Presumably, his job requirements will include more than tweeting. [WWD]

For stylist Melanie Ward’s first collection, Blouson Noir, the former Helmut Lang creative director took her inspiration from tea towels. The end results are a bit bigger, we’re guessing. [WWD]

hunting treasure in london


You know it’s going to be a strange night when the party starts with the appearance of a giant white Samoyed, a live snake, and a five-foot-tall stuffed unicorn. Those were some of the goodies found at a treasure hunt hosted by Boucheron to celebrate its 150-year anniversary in London last night. Guests such as Amy Sacco, Matthew Williamson, Graeme Black, Alexandra Shulman, and Daphne Guinness were sent out in chauffered limos with cards bearing words such as “enchanting” or “curious.” Their mission: to come back with an item that best represented their word. Sound naff? Well, the incentive was pretty enticing: Each member of the winning team—Brit actress Rosamund Pike and Boucheron CEO Jean-Christophe Bédos acted as judges—received the mother of all prizes, a sumptuous piece of jewelry from Boucheron worth £25,000 (about $43,400). No wonder the winning Team Sacco was grinning broadly from ear to ear at night’s end.

A Gray Old Time


Color London gray for fashion week, where the subdued hue has shown up in collections from Graeme Black‘s to Christopher Kane‘s. It’s been particularly popular with the city’s younger designers. Louise Goldin used icy pale grays for her geometric knit ski suits, turning the models into snow bunnies setting out for a romantic weekend with Mr. Freeze. At Fashion East, Natasha Stolle added an abundance of silvery grays to the mix, and Louise Gray lived up to her name with lots of granite-colored knits.
