Calling Big Brother…Yesterday, DKNY hosted a fashion-centric Easter egg hunt at its Madison Avenue flagship. The event apparently served to test Awear Solutions’ new clothing chips, which, via an app, aim to make garments one sees on the street instantly shoppable. That’s exactly what I want: random people walking up to me on the sidewalk and scanning me with their iPhones. Great. I miss the days of catcalls and the occasional “Where’d ya get those shoes?” R.I.P.
Last week, New York. Today, London. Tomorrow, Milan. After that, the world. Do you really need a reminder that the Fall 2013 fashion weeks are in full swing?

For Rebecca Minkoff devotees, there’s something new to add to your set: a six-piece tech collection exclusively for eBay, launching November 14. “EBay is a place that I constantly go to for vintage and for inspiration, so when they approached me for this, it seemed like a perfect fit,” Minkoff tells Style.com.
The designer, who counts herself as a tech person, already has a line of gear for your gadgets, sold through her namesake label. “I really try to stay on top of what is constantly out there so I can stay in touch with my customer and interact with them through all venues of communication,” she says. In signature Minkoff fashion, the iPad and iPhone cases (sold at “Buy It Now” prices, ranging from $28 to $220) for eBay are embellished with gold and black spike studs.
The limited-edition Rebecca Minkoff for eBay tech collection launches November 14 at eBay Fashion Vault.
The Lanvin/H&M Trailer You’ve Been Waiting For, It’s “Showtime” For Baptiste, Banksy Meets The Simpsons, And More…-------
Turkish blog Zet Fashion won the coveted right to broadcast the new Lanvin for H&M Trailer. (Yet more proof that Turkey is having a big, big moment.) Head over to see Leigh Lezark serve Alber Elbaz tea in the new spot (though, suffice it to say, MisShape tea service not included with actual H&M purchase). [Zet Fashion]
Baptiste Giabiconi, Karl Lagerfeld’s model/slash/attendant of the moment, is working on an album. He recently hit a French TV show to debut a brief clip of his first single, “Showtime,” which sounds—well, let’s just say it could use a little work before it makes the Chanel Fall ’11 soundtrack. The single cover, left, and the evidence, below. [YouTube via Refinery29]
Speaking of videos, Banksy contributed one to The Simpsons last night: The art-world adored graffiti artist did his own version of the famous couch sequence from the comedy’s opening credits. It’s a pretty scabrous look behind the scenes of Springfield (and, by extension, the entire world of TV merchandising, from T-shirts to stuffed animals). How your Simpsons sausage gets made, in other words—judging from the cute-critter grinder Banksy imagines in the underground lair, literally. [YouTube via Dazed Digital#&93;
And it’s been rumored forever, but with the paper of record weighing in, it’s looking like a done deal: Verizon to get the iPhone in 2011. [NYT] Continue Reading “The Lanvin/H&M Trailer You’ve Been Waiting For, It’s “Showtime” For Baptiste, Banksy Meets The Simpsons, And More…” »
