Lensed by Hugh Lippe, Fenton’s Fall campaign takes a cue from the dark, dreamy opulence of David Lynch’s Blue Velvet. And who better to star in the cinematic snaps than twenty-first-century femme fatale Crystal Renn? “I immediately thought of this Dorothy Vallens-type woman from Blue Velvet, mixed with a kind of Alexis Carrington,” Fenton designer Dana Lorenz said of the shots. “I thought of a voyeuristic view on this woman either packing and leaving her lover or going on a midnight rendezvous.” Get a first look at Renn posing with Fenton’s latest baubles in the campaign’s exclusive debut here.
When you’re ready, you’re ready. As recently as two months ago, Kimberly Ovitz was certain she wasn’t going to show at New York fashion week. But then the L.A.-based designer realized that her Spring 2010 collection—her third—was coming together in a particularly satisfying way. And then, as if to ratify that feeling, she found out that MAC & Milk was offering her a spot on its roster. “It was sort of like, OK, I guess it’s time,” Ovitz says with a laugh. “Very last-minute, but I’m crossing my fingers that we can get everything done by the 16th.” That, of course, is the date of Ovitz’s first-ever fashion week presentation, for which preparations will now have to come together at speed. But Ovitz is ahead of the game in one respect—she’s already shot her lookbook with lensman Hugh Lippe. “We shot half in studio, and half on location at a ranch, and I really feel like Hugh brought the collection to life,” Ovitz notes. “He got what I was trying to capture.” Though she’s a bit coy about what, precisely, Lippe “got,” Ovitz is willing to preview some new elements in the line. “This season is a lot more fluid, with more wrapped silhouettes,” she reveals. “And I’m adding color for the first time, but I don’t want to talk about that yet.” When you’re not ready, you’re just not ready.
