Elisabeth Weinstock’s New Home for Him, and Her


Informed by the ethos of “him, her, and home,” interior designer-turned-accessory designer Elisabeth Weinstock will bow her first store in West Hollywood on Monday. After years spent working on interiors projects, Weinstock, who counts Jennifer Aniston, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and Naomi Campbell among her fans, branched out and crafted an exotic skin jewelry box. It was this that got her into the accessories biz and, with the help of L.A. store Maxfield, she realized there was quite a market for her high end vision of sleek, understated cases and bags. Her collection, which is produced locally, is one that addresses today’s modern needs—for instance, there are plenty of tech accessories. But there are a few kitsch and novelty items, too. “I love creating things that are off the beaten path—a tampon box, a condom box, even a dopp kit as a clutch,” the designer says.

With her interiors experience at play, Weinstock repurposed a 1930s house to achieve an 1,800 square-foot abode for her thoughtful designs. The new store is divided into three sections: The first is a “man cave,” which features Weinstock’s bestselling dopp kits (most popular in boa and watersnake) and humidors, along with a croc football and anaconda boxing gloves—ideal for the guy who really does have everything. “There’s a customer that’s hungry to find something new, something different that’s made like an everyday object,” she reasons. The more feminine “boudoir” area offers an elevated take on the cosmetics case, a crossbody bag, a wallet, and a clutch in a range of skins. Finally, there’s a home, or “living room” section, where shoppers can find custom coffee tables (one of which is shown in viper), stacking boxes, and the jewelry boxes upon which the brand was built. “Without sounding too cliché, it’s modern and edgy but still everyday,” Weinstock says of the space. Not cliché at all—in fact, it mimics the very spirit of the collection.

Elisabeth Weinstock’s new store will open on Monday at 8159 W. 3rd Street, West Hollywood, CA;

A Leading Role for Lopez


“I don’t normally get to play roles opposite ladies,” joked Jason Statham last night at the MoMA for the Cinema Society screening of his new movie Parker. “Most of my roles are spent banging thugs around in the head!” And what a lady he got—Statham stars alongside Jennifer Lopez in the gritty heist flick. “Not a bad leading couple, huh?” said director Taylor Hackford. He and Lopez were old friends before he had worked with her professionally. Costar Micah Hauptman was pleasantly surprised by Lopez’s work ethic. “She would show up early on set, she wanted to get as many takes in as she could, and was asking all of us if her scene works—she’s really collaborative.” Lopez plays a real-estate agent down on her luck, to say the least, and took inspiration from her own personal life—filming began as her own separation from then-husband Marc Anthony unfolded. “At work, you have to be so professional in the moment, but I was lucky to be in front of the cameras and act exactly as I felt.” Usually a fashion-week regular, Lopez plans on skipping out this season in order to begin work on her tenth studio album.

After the screening, guests braved the bitter cold and crossed town for the after-party, held at the newly renovated Marquee. “Sometimes I just want to wear Uggs, but it doesn’t really go with this look,” said Australian actress Emma Booth, who plays Statham’s love interest in the film. And how does Lopez deal with frigid New York weather? “I’m leaving for Vegas tonight!”

Chanel’s New It Bag Is Hula-Ready


Chanel is no stranger to the novelty item—surfboards, fishing rods, and more have all been emblazoned with the double-Cs—but this morning’s show at the Grand Palais included a doozy: quilted Chanel bags stretched into what appeared to be giant hula hoops. Will they be a street-style sensation next season? Time will tell. At the very least, they may be the rare item to make a case both to label fans (like Jennifer Lopez, seated front-row) and their kids (her 4-year-old daughter Emme Anthony, seated on her lap). For those inclined toward something a bit smaller, the bag also came in a mini size. The smaller could be the bigger hit.

The Most Powerful of Them All


The Costume Institute at the Met earlier this year celebrated two of fashion’s female greats: Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli. It was indeed a great triumph for powerful ladies in all fields. The annual Forbes list of the 100 most powerful women in the world, out today, honors Prada and a few other stylish women with the attention they so deserve. No surprise here, but CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg came in at number 33, above one of fashion’s other most powerful ladies, Anna Wintour (#51). Joining them are fashion favorites like Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, Gisele Bündchen, Queen Elizabeth II, Beyoncé, and J. Lo. Click here to see the full list. Honorable mention goes to power women in the making including Kate Middleton (you can’t win everything; sorry, Kate), Girls‘ Lena Dunham, Jennifer Lawrence, and Spanx creator Sarah Blakely. Maybe next year, ladies.

Karl And His Body Double, And More of Today’s Top Stories


Karl Lagerfeld got waxed. Germany’s oldest waxwork museum, Panoptikum Hamburg, is paying tribute to their nation’s finest, Lagerfeld included, by turning them into eccentric wax figures. Lagerfeld’s was unveiled to the public last week (pictured), interestingly placed between Pope Benedict XVI and the German prostitute Domenica. [Telegraph]

Jennifer Lopez has a new man: Zuhair Murad. The pop singer has tapped the Beirut-based designer to create looks for her summer concert tour, including a feathered skirt, a body suit, and several short dresses. This is not the first time Lopez and Murad have worked together—the singer wore one of Murad’s gown to the 2011 Met Gala and the Academy Awards. [WWD]

Could Michael Jackson be the subject of the Met’s Costume Institute exhibition in 2014? Sources say maybe. The exhibit has the potential to be a hit, since Jackson was known for his iconic costumes, including Swarovski-encrusted gloves and looks from Balmain, Tom Ford, and Givenchy. []

The collaboration between H&M and Maison Martin Margiela has been confirmed. The Paris-based design house will produce a one-off collection that will go on sale November 15. “This collaboration will be a great and memorable fashion moment,” said H&M creative director Margareta van den Bosch. [WWD]

The wild things are descending upon Soho. The author of the children’s classic Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak, is the subject of a retrospective on display through September 3. The collection on view includes several of the author’s stories from the Little Bear series to his The Nutcracker drawings. [Art Info]
