The Florence-born jeweler Ippolita—one-name only, please—has had the likes of Kate Hudson, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, and more wearing her elegant 18-karat gold and sterling jewelry for 12 years now. Soon, the red-carpet set will see the designer’s new handbags (prices start at $1,495), too. Made of python and suede and topped with brass and wood detailing, the new accessories will launch at the same time as her new Madison Avenue store, her first-ever retail location. The full collection consists of six different color combinations; my favorite is above.
Halle Berry X Deichmann, Reed Krakoff Opens Pop-Up Shop At Printemps, Alexis Bittar Taps Ab Fab Stars, And More…-------
Halle Berry is collaborating on a line with the German shoe retailer Deichmann. Her Fifth Avenue by Halle Berry collection of sandals and wedges hits stores in March. [Vogue U.K.]
Reed Krakoff has just unveiled his Printemps pop-up shop on the retailer’s main floor. His 300-square-foot space, with brands like Prada nearby, shows off his leather goods. [WWD]
Alexis Bittar recruited Absolutely Fabulous icons Patsy and Edina for his Fall 2012 ad campaign. “From the first episode, I inherited the word ‘sweetie’ for about five years. It got to the point where it became nauseating—I was forced to stop,” Bittar says of his obsession with the show. [Telegraph]
Next month, Miguel Androver will be back on the New York fashion scene sharing his environmentally friendly design principles at various fashion week events. His namesake line (which includes his capsule collection for eco-friendly line Hessnatur) is being shown February 11, followed by a limited-edition collection for Savage Senses February 12, and he’s unveiling a line of organic T-shirts at downtown boutique Casa di Moda.

Unretouched celebrity photos have become so rare, they’re marketable (see Marie Claire‘s May Jessica Simpson cover: “The Real Jessica: No makeup, No retouching, No regrets!”). But before PhotoShop helped celebrities look as good as inhumanly possible, a great portrait was the product of lighting, makeup, and a skilled photographer. Johnny Rozsa, who’s been immortalizing household names over the past three decades for publications like Vogue and The Face, collected 115 unfiltered, never-before-seen photos of stars before they hit super-fame—and, not to mention, before many of them went under the knife—into a retrospective coffee-table book, Untouched. There’s Catherine Zeta-Jones—back when she was just a beautiful Welsh girl—posing with her tracheotomy scar prominently displayed. And a younger, curvier Halle Barry in a beret, cheekily mooning the camera. Arnold Schwarzenegger makes an appearance, too, pulling a practically adolescent Andrea Dellal into a beefy embrace (pictured). Untouched is on sale at Barneys, and Rosza is celebrating the book’s release with a solo exhibition that opens today at Christopher Henry Gallery in Chinatown.
Untouched runs until November 28, 127 Elizabeth St., NYC, (212) 244-6004.
