On Our Radar: Maggy Frances

-------

It comes as no surprise that Manhattan native Maggy Frances Schultz ended up in the fashion industry. After all, her mother was the executive head of product development and design at the Gap in the late eighties and early nineties and her father is a co-founder of Urban Outfitters. The NYU grad launched her own line, Maggy Frances, just last week. The focus is fun, tailored separates including silk patterned blouses and wool blazers. One of our favorites is the jacquard minidresses (pictured). Schultz cleverly named the pieces after girls that she grew up with in NYC, her pal Hannah Bronfman included. For now, the line is available exclusively on the just-launched MaggyFrances.com and by private appointment. With the cool fall weather upon us and holiday parties just around the corner, Maggy’s bound to become your go-to girl.

The Cult Of Cavalli

-------

“I love women and they love me,” Roberto Cavalli told Style.com last night, surrounded by a throng of female admirers at his newly renovated Madison Avenue flagship store. They had flocked uptown to the Italian couturier’s shop to kick off the annual Casita Maria gala honoring Cavalli this November.

The shop—outfitted in new crystal-dusted flooring, tufted python ottomans, and chocolate ponyhair rugs—quickly filled with the likes of China Machado, Hannah Bronfman, Melissa George, Denise Rich, and Michelle Harper. Never mind the Indian summer; when Mr. Cavalli throws a party, the dress code calls for two things: leopard and fur. “Russian women love to dress,” quipped soprano Anna Netrebko, the star of the Metropolitan Opera’s Anna Bolena, who arrived swathed in an aqua animal-print number and a matching mink bolero. “All that fur and bling, we love it.”

The designer, who recently celebrated 40 years in business, revealed no plans to hang his bedazzled coat (ahem, jeans) anytime soon. And why should he? His Spring ’12 gold sequined collection was jaw-dropping. “This is my life,” he said. “I started working in fashion because I love femininity, and to me the most important thing is to make women feel more beautiful.” Mr. Cavalli, mission accomplished.

Cat Eyes

-------

With this indecisive fall weather, sunglasses can easily become a forgotten mishap. That is, unless you’re sporting a pair from Bulgari’s new Le Gemme line. The jewelry company threw a fête at the Soho branch of Ilori to celebrate the haute joaillerie sunglasses, and considering the price tags—styles reached upward to $44,000 with rose gold, colored gems, and diamonds—the collection wasn’t the kind to be carelessly misplaced.

“I’ve worn one of the black sunglasses with the little flowers on the side out in Cannes,” Kirsten Dunst said. The Melancholia actress pulled off the retro fifties- and sixties-inspired cat-eye shape with aplomb, encased for the evening in polished glass cases with walls of real foliage and climbing roses as backdrop. She had more trouble on the Pasadena, California, shoot for the fragrance Bulgari Jasmin Noir. “It was a stuffed lion, so not the easiest co-star,” Dunst said. “There was a real lion, but he was kept separate. It was the same lion as the Narnia film The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.” Notable felines seemed to be a theme for the night. Hannah Bronfman, Jessica Joffe, and Ten lingerie’s Daphne Javitch were among the admirers of the blinged accessories. Bronfman, though, had clothing in mind. “I’ve just been working on the upcoming collection,” she said of her collaboration with Organic by John Patrick, due out next spring.
