Rodarte has an agent. The famously film-loving sisters are now being represented by William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, which means that maybe the pair will be costuming, producing, and starring in their own anime horror flick. Maybe?! [WWD]
And now, a clutch to go with that Marchesa gown. The super-fancy-dress ladies are introducing handbags, sure to be swoon-worthy and bedecked with feathers. [WWD]
There’s a one-shot sneak peak at a Jimmy Choo for H&M shoe making the blogosphere rounds. The boot in question is over-the-knee, maybe leather, and just under $350. We’re not sure if that’s cheap or pricey. Thoughts? [Nitrolicious]
Are wellies making the leap from protective gear to all-weather footwear? If the designers at Hunter have anything to say about it, the answer could be yes. First they collaborated with Jimmy Choo on a $395 croc-embossed style that was almost too nice to wear in the rain. Now they’ve introduced a pair with rugged laces, rivets, and elaborate buckles—detailing worthy of the season’s must-have biker boots. They’re far more stylized than the average galoshes, and at $225 on www.net-a-porter.com, they don’t come cheap. We suspect they’re intended for year-round wear, which begs the question: Would you wear rubber boots on a sunny day like today?
Sophia Kokosalaki is moonlighting again. The Greek designer, who briefly helmed Vionnet, will take on Diesel’s high-end contemporary line, Black Gold, in addition, that is, to working on her namesake collection. Those should be some pretty fabulous jeans. [WWD]
Stilettos for everyone! High-low takes on new meaning with the announcement of H&M’s latest collaboration, with skyscraper-heel outfitter Jimmy Choo. Accessories for men and women, including some clothing options, hit stores on November 14. Happy holidays. [WWD]
Claire Danes and Narciso Rodriguez have been together longer than she and fiancé Hugh Dancy have, so it’s only fitting that Rodriguez is designing her wedding dress. “I get weepy,” she said of the design process. We’re sure she means that in a good way. [People]
As if it isn’t difficult enough to make a flawless transition from winter to spring (the wind, the humidity, the question of what dernier tights to don), this rain really throws a wrench in our program. Happily, we’ve come across a stylish alternative to the all-too-whimsical wellingtons that seem to go hand in hand (foot in foot?) with April showers. These limited-edition, croc-embossed rubber boots are the result of a collaboration between Hunter and Jimmy Choo. And if they conjure thoughts of Kate Moss at Glastonbury, you’re on the right track. “I was inspired by images from the festivals of the hip Brit girls in their wellies,” explains Jimmy Choo president and founder Tamara Mellon. We say, why save them for a rainy day? The HUNTER boot by Hunter and Jimmy Choo, black crocodile-embossed rubber, $395, at Jimmy Choo boutiques, 1-866-JCHOO-US, www.jimmychoo.com.
