The Cat Is Out of the Bag

-------

If the elbow-to-elbow lines at the Jason Wu for Target party was any indication, the retailer’s latest high-low collaboration, set to hit shelves on February 5, will be tough to keep in stock. Wu and Target took over Skylight Soho last night and converted it into a whimsical Parisian street scene with a Ladurée macaron station, fully stocked café bar, circulating mini croque madames, and, of course, a boutique stocking the affordable designs (think: polka blouses with jaunty ties and pleated skirts for strolling the Seine). While the likes of Blake Lively, Chloë Moretz, and Harley Viera-Newton jostled for the size smalls, Wu circulated in a trim black-on-black suit. “It’s been amazing to come up with a concept and to have it executed like this,” he said, marveling at the sheer scale of the party and collaboration. “I’ve really enjoyed the process,” he added. “I mean, I’ve now filmed my first commercial and there’s the billboards!”

And the cheeky black cat in the campaign? “I’m a cat person; I have two at home,” Wu explained. ”And I like that the black cat is mysterious and a bit naughty.” Nearby, Kate Young stopped to congratulate the young designer, as did Jaime King, who was in town from L.A. for a few days. By 10:30 p.m. the crowd thickened around the stage, where French electropop band Yelle played a set. Judging by the number of editors in the room bopping their heads, with their Wu merchandise in one hand and a cocktail in the other, it felt like a fashion week warm-up.

Bow Ties: Not Just For College Professors (Or Brad Goreski) Anymore

-------

The boy-meets-girl look has been bigger than ever the past few seasons (for proof, see the Tux Love story in our Fall trend reports), but the dandy-ish neckties we’ve been spotting on celebs lately are something new. Both Diane Kruger and Jaime King wore Jason Wu looks knotted at the throat last week. Kruger topped her shorts suit from Resort with a classic bow tie, while King kept things feminine with a satin ribbon that played up her lacy dress. On the Chanel Couture runway, meanwhile, Karl Lagerfeld showed a long jacket with a flared maxi skirt and a loopy tie that was right up Janelle Monáe’s alley—the Chanel muse, like the Kaiser himself, has a known penchant for black-tie ensembles.
