Lane Crawford, Hong Kong’s must-visit department store, celebrates its 160th anniversary this year. So how better to celebrate than with unmatchable exclusive products from the editors, stylists, and designers it’s wooed over the years? The Burberry trench and the Ming dynasty chair are two of the “heritage” items that will be getting the touch-up treatment—like Anna Dello Russo’s take on the trench, left. [WWD]
What happens when Michael Bastian—one of menswear’s top talents—takes on women’s? As this preview of his women’s collection for Gant (which his publicist and pal Eugenia Gonzalez Ruiz-Olloqui wore to the CFDAs this year) shows, it marries prepster sensibility with a little Monroe glamour. We’ll be curious to see more. [WWD]
The Internet is in an uproar over the name of one of the items from Rodarte’s new cosmetics collection for MAC—”Juarez,” a factory town in Mexico with notoriously high rape and murder rates. The people spoke, the sisters (and their corporate backers) listened: “We recognize that the violence against women taking place in Juarez needs to be met with proactive action. We never intended to make light of this serious issue and we are truly sorry,” the designers said in a statement; the names will be changed before the September release. [Vogue U.K.]
And fire up your iPhone 4 (with its splendid new bumper): New York magazine rounded up the ten best fashion apps, including, ahem, our own. We’re blushing. [NYMag]
First Chanel, then Louis Vuitton, now Lanvin—the rush to Saint-Tropez continues. Elbaz and co. are the latest to open a shop in St.-T, and they’ve got other plans too—including a refurbished Web site and the new Fall campaigns, like the Meisel-shot womenswear ads starring Magdalena Frackowiak, Anja Rubik, and Mariacarla Boscono (pictured).

The World Cup commentator you’ve gotta read is…Hilary Alexander?! Turns out the Telegraph‘s fashion critic has a healthy extracurricular interest in footer—and she’s been live-tweeting games at @hilaryalexander. [Fashionista]
It’s a good time to be a young designer in London. Nike is the latest brand to collaborate with emerging designers, giving Katie Eary, SIBLING, Julian J Smith, Tim Soar, Felder Felder, and Hannah Marshall free reign to rejigger the N98 track jacket. The results, predictably, are loud. [Vogue U.K.]
And bad news for NYC shoppers: As of Saturday, all of Manhattan’s Apple stores are sold out of iPhone 4s. If you want one, you’ll just have to…oh, yeah, order online. Why wasn’t everyone doing this in the first place? [Racked]
The apps work better than ever on Apple’s new operating system, and—not that we would ever blow our own trumpet—we couldn’t help but notice one in particular during Steve Jobs’ presentation this afternoon. (No, we didn’t pay for the placement.) Still don’t have the Style.com iPhone app? Download it here.
Karlie Kloss is Dior‘s new face, a tidbit John Galliano offered up when he was late for his own party in Paris on Monday night. We guess casting the Spring campaign is as good an excuse as any. [WWD]
At Ann Taylor, Cintra Wilson finds Lanvin‘s first cousin, Balenciaga‘s love child, and a Louis Vuitton castoff. Not bad for under $250. [NYT]
Move over, Audrey. Angelina Jolie is in talks to star in the next big fashion film— Gucci, a big-budget thriller about the murder of Maurizio Gucci. [Variety]
Speaking of Gucci, now they’ve got an iPhone app. Yes, Angie, online shopping can be considered character research. [WWD]
Wait, there’s more: Mark Ronson’s sneakers for (you guessed it) Gucci are actually more like boat shoes. They’ll be in the Crosby Street pop-up on Friday. BYO dock. [Racked]
No matter how clearly or concisely you try to present the information on a Web site, promotional space is at such a premium you always worry that some content might be overlooked. With that in mind, here’s a handy guide to all our coverage of the fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Now you never need miss a photo, post, or tweet again.
Runway Reviews and Photos: Judging by last week’s record page views—a huge thank you to our new and returning users—you’re not having any trouble finding these. But as a reminder, this page is a convenient place to locate every designer covered in our Spring 2010 reporting. And don’t forget that you can view each collection in full-screen as well as in regular slideshow format and that many shows feature front-row and backstage-beauty photos as well as runway shots.
NEW! Shop the Looks: One exciting addition to our runway coverage is a brand new shopping experience called Shop the Looks. We’re categorizing each runway look into one of 36 trends, from boho to minimal. If something on the runway grabs your eye, simply click on the Shop the Looks link to find similarly themed looks from a range of top designers and retailers. Here, for example, you can get a jump on the animal-print trend that roared to life during NY Fashion Week.
Street-Style Photos: Because trends don’t just start on the catwalk, we’ve asked popular photoblogger Tommy Ton to document the best off-runway looks from New York to Paris. Tommy has a talent for catching fashionable types in spontaneous, informal moments—not as easy as it looks with a crowd that’s ready to pose at the drop of a Philip Treacy hat. You’ll find his daily photo diary here.
NEW! The Fashion Feed: The Twitter revolution means that the fashion-reporting cycle is even faster than ever, but how to separate the tweets from the chaff? Our innovative new Fashion Feed gathers the most fashionable Twitterers, from The New York Times‘ The Moment to Style.com’s own globe-trotting correspondent Dizzy Blazeberg, in one place. Just click here for a real-time snapshot of what’s happening in the front row and beyond.
Style.com on Twitter: Of course, if you want only the very best tweets, your favorite Web site is now on Twitter (a little late to the party, we admit, but fashionably so, let’s hope). Start following us today.
Style.com on the iPhone: On the other hand, we were way ahead of the pack in embracing the iPhone, and we like to think our app remains the best: It has everything you love about Style.com on the computer, without the hassle of being tied to your desk. If you haven’t already, download our iPhone app now. (Oh, by the way, need a stylish cover for your Apple device? We can help there, too.)
But wait, that’s not even the half of it. Don’t miss:
• Our up-to-the-minute party reports.
• Our award-winning runway videos.
• The Lookbooks that allow you to save and share your favorite photos from the site.
• And last but not least, be sure to vote for the Look of the Day.
