Every season, Stefano Pilati extends the YSL vision by sending it out farther than the end of the runway. With his Manifesto, the Saint Laurent look gets all the way to the street. Starting this Tuesday, September 14, the Manifesto—an extended lookbook starring Daria Werbowy packaged in a Pilati-designed bag (below)—hits the streets of New York, where they’ll be distributed to 2,000 passersby. (Following that, they’ll hit Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and for the first time, Beirut, on September 18.) Inez and Vinoodh shot both the lookbook and the accompanying teaser video, debuting exclusively on Style.com. If you’ve ever wanted to watch Daria slowly descend some stairs (and, hey, who hasn’t?), today’s your lucky day. The short has a hypnotic, trippy elegance—think Last Year in Marienbad with faster costume changes.
Before “designer collaboration” became fashion’s second-most frequently dropped phrase (immediately following “pop-up shop,” by our count), Tina Lutz and Marcia Patmos were doing just that—calling up friends and fans and working with them on limited-edition items in their ultra-soft cashmere. It helps that the designers have more catholic tastes than most. Over the course of their guest designers series, they worked with everyone from Carine Roitfeld to architect Richard Meier to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, all of whom waxed philosophic about the sweaters of their dreams and helped to make them a reality. Lutz & Patmos is shutting up shop, sad to say—Patmos will continue on as M. Patmos, as well as designing the more contemporary Leroy & Perry collections, and Lutz will pursue other projects—but before they go, they’ve rounded up the collabs of years past, which are now on sale at their e-commerce site. From Roitfeld’s (modeled, top left, by the editrix herself, and son Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld) to Christy Turlington’s (top right, inspired by the yogic lotus flower), Fabien Baron’s (top left), and Inez van Lamsweerde’s (top right), they’re available now for, potentially, the last time ever. Shop brisk—and click below for pieces by Jane Birkin, and Natalia Vodianova. Continue Reading “Lutz & Patmos, With A Little Help From Their Friends” »
Lingerie lovers: Run, don’t walk, to Eres stores. The Chanel-owned brand has announced it will shut its standalone retail spaces in the U.S. by August. But don’t worry too much—the line (pictured, left, with Chanel in the Karl Lagerfeld-shot co-branded campaign) will still be available in the U.S. at forthcoming shop-in-shops. [WWD]
Meanwhile, Lacoste is going deeper into the U.S. market. Its new, younger-skewing Lacoste Live brand will bow first with a shop in Soho, before rolling out internationally. [WWD]
Tantalizing: Jason Wu is adding accessories to his eponymous collection. He’s already dipped a toe into the water with a range of sunglasses. [Vogue U.K.]

And the most adorable video you’ll see this week: Spanish goalie, team captain, and newly crowned World Cup winner Iker Casillas conducts an on-air interview of sorts with his broadcaster girlfriend, Sara Carbonero. Adrien Brody and Halle Berry have got nothing on these two. [Gawker]
Stay far, far away: The Soho Hollister store is infested with bedbugs. The store is closed while the label attempts to de-louse (or, we guess, de-bedbug-ify). [Huffington Post]
The reign of the supes continues: Inez and Vinoodh shot Daria Werbowy for YSL’s Fall ’10 campaign. [Fashionologie]
It’s been speculated about for months, but Naomi Campbell (and, for the record, Mia Farrow) will be called to testify at the war crimes trial of Liberia’s Charles Taylor, who allegedly gave Campbell a large diamond. [WSJ]
The latest It bag—the mochila, the traditional satchel created by the Wayuu tribeswomen of Colombia and Venezuela? They’re coming to Barneys, they’ve already sold out of J.Crew, and Proenza Schouler’s doing PS1′s in mochila fabrics for pre-fall. So, in a word—yes. [NYT]
And this, apparently, is Carine Roitfeld’s home. Now you know. [Oak via Racked]
YSL-philes may be lamenting that the new Chyc won’t arrive in time for fashion week, but here’s your first look at a bag that will: It’s Stefano Pilati’s tote for the sixth YSL Manifesto, which arrives in New York next Tuesday, February 16. Two thousand of them will be handed out—free of charge—in New York, followed by similar drops in Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and, for the first time, Berlin. The newspaper-sized Manifesto inside has all the Inez and Vinoodh shots of Natalia Vodianova in the Spring 2010 collection, but we’re just as into the pixelated, strawberry-printed bag itself. Expect to see more than a few, crammed with invites, bottled water, and all the other fashion week sundries, on your trips from Milk to the tents.
