Chanel’s Boy handbag campaign video, featuring Alice Dellal, has arrived. In the old-timey, grainy video, Dellal carelessly tosses gowns and grapes about her estate—but worry not, she never leaves her Boy bag behind. [Racked]
In the crowded world of street-style blogging, a group of young female bloggers are carving their own unique niche. Doubling as both photographers and subjects, women like Hanneli Mustaparta, Tamu McPherson, and Candice Lake are finding themselves in front of the camera as often as behind it. “[It's] an innate understanding of how other women like to be perceived or the message they’d like to communicate with their style,” McPherson says of her peers.

For the latest in its DIY Campaign—which has already commissioned top models like Sasha Pivovarova, Karolina Kurkova, Miranda Kerr, and Abbey Lee Kershaw to turn the camera on themselves—Rag & Bone sought out a model whose catwalk years are mostly behind her. These days, Hanneli Mustaparta is more often found shooting top girls at shows and on the street—not that she’s lost an iota of the good looks that fueled her own modeling career. Mustaparta shot herself on the go in London, Paris, New York, and Sweden. “I wanted to shoot the pictures in a snapshot kind of way, to freeze the moments for a little bit,” she tells Style.com. “The only way I could shoot them was to bring the bag with the Rag & Bone clothes with me while travelling to London and Paris for fashion week, then to Norway and Sweden and then back to New York again. Doing the shots was a nice break from the usual fashion week extravaganza.” Her favorite? “When I climbed up on the lamp post on the Pont Alexandre III bridge in Paris. That bridge inspires me every time I pass it in a car. It’s the prettiest bridge in Paris—and perhaps in the world.”
London’s Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos threw a little dinner party at the James here in New York last night before heading home today to prep their first-ever Resort collection for the brand. In advance of a round of appointments with editors and buyers earlier this week, the designing duo spent a few days in Miami soaking up the sun, and reports about their trip had the crowd in the new hotel’s penthouse, which included Hanneli Mustaparta (wearing the label, left), Kate Young, and Olivia Chantecaille, clamoring for one thing: bathing suits. Pilotto and De Vos promised they’ll be back in New York to show Resort, but as to whether or not they’ll come armed with bikinis in their signature digital prints, we’ll just have to wait until June.
