If you could walk a mile in her boots…you’d be helping Nine West fight cancer. The footwear brand has partnered with the CFDA to create its Nine West Runway Relief initiative. For New York fashion week, the label is strapping Coco Rocha (pictured), Jessica White, and Lisalla Montenegro into a pair of its new boots, specially equipped with a pedometer; for each step the girls take, a donation will be made to the CFDA’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer charity. If you like the high, multi-buckled boots yourself, good news: You don’t have to be a model to get a pair (though you do have to be quick). A limited number will be available for sale on Nine West’s Facebook page for $199.
“Simplicity looks fresh again,” Ruffian’s Claude Morais said at the Ace Hotel last night. He and partner Brian Wolk were sipping Champagne in the hotel’s basement Liberty Lounge to celebrate the arrival of Threads & Heirs, their debut menswear collection for Macy’s. And even if the goods were not quite what you’d expect from the frills-and-frips Ruffian boys, the guys assembled—including Lorenzo Martone, who came on the arm of Jessica White; Paper magazine’s Luigi Tadini, who hosted the fête (pictured above, with Wolk and Morais); and Timo Weiland—all looked well pleased. “We’re pretty classic American boys,” Wolk told Style.com at the announcement of the collaboration with the historic retailer, and here were classic American pieces: seersucker jackets, short-sleeved cotton button-downs, military-inspired flak jackets. Classic boys, maybe, but not boys-only. “I have a rack of pieces in the studio and I have to keep asking them to send me more,” Morais said with a laugh. “The girls keep grabbing the polos, the cardigans.” As if on cue, a Ruffian gal in a striped men’s polo floated by.
