Seventh Avenue Saviors, Zac Without Susan, Officer Tamara, And More…


Designers from Anna Sui to Yigal Azrouël mobilized for yesterday’s Garment District rally, where protesters called for rezoning that would protect and, hopefully, create more manufacturing jobs. As per the demonstrators’ posters, supporting the fashion industry is “sew New York.” [WWD]

Susan Posen, a.k.a. Mom of Zac, stepped down from her role as acting CEO of her son’s company yesterday, a move that coincides with Susan Davidson’s recent hire. Insert “leaving to spend more time with her family” joke here. [WWD]

Tamara Mellon wore Dolce & Gabbana (and, one imagines, Jimmy Choos) to pick up her OBE today from the Queen. Can we expect a Union Jack heel from the newly minted Officer of the Order of the British Empire? Or, better yet, Her Majesty in stilettos? [Grazia]

And finally, your dress-like-a-Jersey Shore-star update: Snooki’s slippers are available for pre-order, but J-WOWW’s Filthy Couture line has been shut down. We’re calling that a lose-win kind of situation. [NY Mag and Radar]

Topshop To Tokyo (Again),
JPG Joins Carla’s Cause, And More…


Topshop has announced it’ll open a second Tokyo store in September, which will be its new Japanese flagship, in the Shinjuku shopping district. Glad to hear it—we were worried there were ten square feet left in Tokyo without some amazing retail space, so Topshop should fill that in nicely. [WWD]

Jean Paul Gaultier (pictured) has teamed up with Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, designing a T-shirt to raise awareness for the French first lady’s Born HIV Free campaign. The shirt comes packaged with the new issue of French Elle and is Breton style—we’d say perfectly on trend, given the Saint James craze at the moment, but in all fairness, Gaultier’s been doing sailor-boy chic for years. [WWD]

First Jersey-ite JWoww launched her line of Filthy Couture, and now her cast mate, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, is launching his own line, with the apparel brand DILLIGAF (“Does It Look Like I Give A”…you can fill in the rest). He took to Facebook to show off the first look, which is, predictably, a tank top emblazoned with the words “The Situation.” Just what we were waiting for! [Racked]

Aquascutum’s new creative director, Joanna Sykes, is temporarily closing her own, namesake label to focus on the British heritage brand. But not to worry—if you’re a devoted customer, she’ll still make you your Sykes goods on a bespoke basis. [Vogue U.K.]

JV Turns Ten, Lara Stone Goes To Court, The Southeast Is In The Pink, And More…


John Varvatos celebrates his tenth anniversary in business this year, and, in typical rocker style, is cranking it up to 11: He’ll unveil a new, Sgt. Pepper-inspired ad campaign, throw a massive party in his Bowery (formerly CBGB) store, and release a limited-edition rock star necessity—a new pair of shades (pictured). [WWD]

Lara Stone gets litigious: The model of the moment is suing French Playboy for allegedly publishing nude photos of her without permission. Scandale! [Fashionologie]

What your retailer knows about you: more than you might expect. Stores and online shops keep detailed records about customer preferences both personally and regionally, and their data can be used to shape buys and merchandising. Did you know that southeasterners are more likely to buy pink than other U.S. citizens, while West Coasters prefer green? More of the data can be found in The Wall Street Journal‘s handy new charts. Buy carefully—Big (shopping) Brother is watching. [WSJ]

Are the kids of the Jersey Shore going classy? The stars rang the bell at the New York Stock Exchange and flashed nary a hint of cleavage. Jenni “JWoww” Farley, the designer of her own Filthy Couture line, even wore a suit. Woww indeed. [Racked]

Marc And Lorenzo No More, Stella’s New Look, Assessing Snooki, And More…


STOP THE PRESSES—or, well, the Twitter. Have Marc Jacobs and Lorenzo broken up? That’s what Mr. Martone tweeted, ending months of speculation. [Vogue U.K.]

Stella McCartney commissioned English artist Barry Reigate to reimagine her logo for her new Fall ad campaign, starring Natalia Vodianova (pictured). Stella’s now spelled out with balloons and accented with top hats and pumpkins. [WWD]

Further proof that it’s Jersey Shore‘s world, we’re just living in it: Cathy Horyn’s front-page Styles section profile of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, the elf-sized, be-poufed centerpiece of the reality show. (Meanwhile, NJ governor Chris Christie spent the weekend complaining that the Jersey Shore kids are just transplanted New Yorkers.) [NYT]

And speaking of befuddling performance-art phenomena: New York magazine tackles the enigma that is Gucci pitchman and General Hopsital artiste James Franco. [NY Mag]

Madonna Plays Mamma, Tommy To The Champs, And More…


Madonna will star in Dolce & Gabbana’s ad campaign again this season, inspired by the classic Italian film Mamma Roma. Stefano Gabbana says it showcases “a more human and approachable side” of the star. Like, uh, the one above? [WWD]

Meanwhile, Moschino is the latest brand to go to the blog well for its campaign: The label has hired Garance Doré to shoot its Fall ’10 ads for Love Moschino. [Vogue U.K.]

Having taken Fifth Avenue with a multi-story flagship in NYC last year, Tommy Hilfiger is ready to hit Paris’ retail drag—the Champs-Élysées. The designer’s new, 9,000-square-foot boutique will bow there this fall. [WWD]

And Jersey Shore star Jenni “J-Woww” Farley debuted her clothing line, Filthy Couture, in Vegas this weekend. No comment from the Chambre Syndicale in Paris, which currently has its hands full with actual couture. [Styleite]
