After twenty years in the jewelry biz, TenThousandThings’ David Rees and Ron Anderson have a lot to be thankful for. The pair got their big break in 1993, when Kate Moss donned their signature cross pearl earrings in her now-iconic Calvin Klein ads. (Not a bad start, eh?) Since, the designers have racked up a seriously star-studded clientele that includes Julianne Moore, Cyndi Lauper, Christy Turlington, and Susan Sarandon. And they’re using their twentieth anniversary to show their patrons some gratitude.
Over the past two years, Rees and Anderson have worked on a multifaceted project they call Love & Adorn, for which they crafted a collection of one-of-a-kind precious and semiprecious wares inspired by their favorite customers. Inez & Vinoodh photographed sixteen of TTT’s clients, such as Freja Beha Erichsen, Kristen Stewart, Olivier Theyskens, and ballerina Heather Watts, wearing the anniversary range, which is up for auction on CharityBuzz.com through February 27. One hundred percent of the proceeds from each piece will be donated to the wearer’s charity of choice (the True Colors Fund, Doctors Without Borders, and Every Mother Counts among them). “The people who have supported us throughout the years are very important to us. Our way of celebrating our twentieth was to honor their patronage by supporting something they really care about,” said Rees. As for how Inez & Vinoodh got on board, Rees admits it was all Ms. Moore’s idea. “Julianne was the first person I spoke to who absolutely wanted to be involved, and when I asked her who she wanted to be photographed by, she said, ‘Inez & Vinoodh!’ I just thought, Oh God, how am I going to get them?” Lo and behold, Rees’ friend Lisa Immordino Vreeland introduced them at a dinner party. “They said yes in a second, because they’re cool and incredibly generous.” Continue Reading “TenThousandThings Pays It Forward” »
While Barneys’ Madison Avenue flagship is getting an extensive renovation, the retailer’s online home is getting some work done, too. This week, Barneys revealed the new, revamped Barneys.com, with new features to streamline browsing and product suggestions from a host of influencers, including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Julianne Moore and her stylist Leslie Fremar, and Rachel Chandler Guinness and Tom Guinness.
Among the new tools is a “Favorites” feature, which allows you to make categorized lists of your go-to designers, favorite products (those exclusive to Barneys are marked XO—Exclusively Ours), options in your size, and your preferred color choices, all of which can be shared across social media platforms like Twitter, Pinterest, and The Fancy. If you’re looking for ideas, there’s also a “Most Loved” section, which shows the products the most customers “Favorite.” And the editorial sub-site The Window now has designer pages as a home for each brand available to its customers. Once you’ve figured out what you want to buy, it’s just two clicks away.
“Up until six months ago, I thought OpenSky was an airline,” CFDA CEO Steven Kolb admits. For those in the same boat, OpenSky.com is actually a new e-commerce site that offers members (sign-up is free and open to anyone) access to a virtual cabinet of celebrity and expert curators. Members to the site choose the experts—spanning fields from fashion to design to food to fitness and including Julianne Moore, Carolyn Murphy, Lori Goldstein, and more—that most appeal to them, and can then shop items said experts curate for the site. Starting tomorrow, you can count the CFDA among them. As part of a new initiative, OpenSky members will be able to buy exclusive accessories from CFDA members including Diane von Furstenberg, House of Waris’ Waris Ahluwalia, Albertus Swanepoel, Selima Optique, and Fallon’s Dana Lorenz.
“We wanted to start with accessories since American accessories are the best and they never get the spotlight they deserve,” Kolb explains. “But ultimately it is the CFDA’s dream to sell something from all 400 CFDA designers.” Until then, designers like Swanepoel, a milliner, are enjoying their moment in the spotlight. “It is amazing exposure for my small brand,” he says. “I do not currently have e-retailers on board, so this is a first for me.” Here, in this Style.com exclusive video (above), Swanepoel talks about the four exclusive hats he made for the program.
