Update: Solange weighed in via Twitter to fill in the missing link in the chain. The friend who sent her “Stillness Is the Move” cover to Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor is Ethan Silverman, who co-founded Terrible Records with Taylor and runs Silverhawk Management with Molly Hawkins. We’ve added him below.
One day, Solange Knowles was Beyoncé’s radio-friendly little sister. And then, practically overnight, she became a cool-kid sensation, headlining one of the biggest parties of fashion week, the Opening Ceremony/Ace Hotel opening party, where she was backed by indie favorites the Dirty Projectors. That’s no accident: Solange shot to the top of the Pitchfork charts with an inspired cover of the Projectors’ “Stillness Is the Move.” How did Solange and the band come together? A new interview with New York magazine has the answer, which involves a complicated trail of e-mails that brings together the music, fashion, and general art-weirdo (we’re looking at you, Björk) worlds. Our crack team has assembled this helpful infographic to explain.
In the words of Knowles:
“I sent it [her recording of the song] to one friend, who sent it to [Grizzly Bear’s] Chris Taylor, and he sent it to some of my friends in Chairlift, and one of my friends in Chairlift sent it to one of the guys in Dirty Projectors, and one of the guys in Dirty Projectors somehow sent it to Bjööööörk. And if you write that, you have to make it sing like I just did. And a good friend of mine, [designer] Jeremy Scott, sent me a message saying that Björk sent it to him. So I pretty much did cartwheels for ten hours straight.”
Keep an eye on the castings at Elise Øverland this season: Heidi Klum and her fellow judges from Germany’s Next Top Model (pictured) will be front-row judging their contestants, who will be among the catwalkers. Spoiler alert? [Fashionista]
Prada and Fendi have agreed to move their Milan women’s shows to an earlier date, effectively extending fashion week. If you listen closely, you can almost hear the phones at Alitalia ringing furiously as every editor races to reschedule her flight. [WWD]
Kelly Cutrone wants figure skater Johnny Weir front row at Jeremy Scott. Please, please tell us there’s an Olympic outfit by JS in this kid’s future. (It would make for an epic battle of the unitards with one of Vera Wang’s designs for Evan Lysacek.) [The Moment]
And it turns out that Jersey Shore‘s Pauly D. and Blink-182′s Travis Barker have the same “Cadillac” tattoo on their torsos. This message has been brought to you by the Council of Overly Attentive Media Consumers, and presumably lamented through the halls of the Cadillac HQ. [Racked]
As it turns out, Band of Outsiders isn’t the only label feeling nautical. Jeremy Scott is on the boat wave (sorry), too: He’s created a limited-edition shirt for an upcoming exhibition of interiors from the thirties transatlantic ocean liner the S.S. Normandie at the South Street Seaport Museum. The ship included a dining room to seat 700—complete with glass columns by Lalique, which is also contributing a limited-edition ring for the exhibit—a winter garden and aviary, and Art Deco fittings and furnishings by Hermès, Jean Patou, and Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann. In its day, the ship ferried Hemingway (Ernest, not Dree), Dietrich, Disney, Dalí, and even the von Trapp family between Paris and New York. As a guy who’s shown in Paris and, now this season, is returning to New York, Scott knows a thing or two about intercontinental travel. His Deco dame-inspired tee may not have been fancy enough for a first-class dinner on the old Normandie, but it’ll more than do you for the CDG-JFK flight—or, in Jeremy’s current case, one from LAX.
$30, available beginning February 15 at the South Street Seaport Museum, 12 Fulton St., NYC, (212) 748-8733, www.southstreetseaportmuseum.org; Decodence: Legendary Interiors and Illustrious Travelers Aboard the S.S. Normandie runs at the museum from February 25 through January 2011.
Looking for Jeremy Scott’s candy-colored vision of Americana? For the past few years, it’s required a trip to the Paris shows. But the home-grown designer is coming home for Fall 2010, where he’ll show his latest collection at New York Fashion Week. The show itself will be “an homage to fashion itself,” Scott told us when we rang him up in L.A.
And the intercontinental relo? “I’ve been feeling a New York moment,” the designer told us. “I don’t know, maybe it’s all the Jay-Z? I get kind of itchy after too long in one place; it’s been over three years since I’ve shown in New York. In fashion time, that’s practically a decade! Lots of things have changed since I showed in New York—the Adidas collections and all that—so the time seemed right. And maybe I’m a little lazy, too—it’s a little easier to trek over to New York than to go all the way over the ocean.”
