Olivier Theyskens Wants To Design For His Friends, Lindsay Wants Karl To Design For Her Ankle, And More…-------
Batman comics aren’t usually stocked alongside fashion mags, but that doesn’t mean they’re not pretty stylish all the same. (Catwoman totally beat nineties Gucci to sex and skintight leather, after all.) And on Monday at Colette, Sarah Lerfel and crew roll out a collection of pieces inspired by Batman, Catwoman, and their DC Comics stablemates for the publisher’s 75th anniversary. Karl Lagerfeld, Roger Vivier, and Lanvin’s Lucas Ossendrijver—who contributed the supremely awesome “Dog Batman” tee (pictured)—are among the designers participating. [WWD]
Olivier Theyskens was in London last night to fête his book The Other Side of the Picture, and had a few choice words about his upcoming Theory collaboration. As he told Susie Bubble, “As a designer, I’m not a guy that can be put in a niche. I’m a guy who can also put his mind to something more global and accessible. Also, I’ve always been hoping that my friends can buy what I design.” [Style Bubble]
Vice founder Gavin McInnes takes GQ through a few choice catastrophes of hipster-dude style. Those with sensitivities to man-clogs, spandex, and cloaks should not read on. [GQ]
And Lindsay Lohan took to Twitter yesterday to ask Chanel to dress up her court-ordered alcohol-monitoring anklet. Stay klassy, Lohan. [Styleite]
Style.com’s Fashion Feed brings you the best of the news around the Web and on Twitter, and ranks the most-discussed designers, labels, models, and celebrities. In our weekly series, we call out the top five designers of the previous week (with our handy gloss on the hows and whys).
1. Marc Jacobs (pictured; last week: N/A)
One word: Bang. OK, a few more words: Marc Jacobs, naked (again), posing in the ad campaign for his upcoming men’s fragrance, Bang.
2. Jason Wu (last week: N/A)
Jason’s expanded eyewear collection—inspired by heroines from Joan Jett (hmm, sounds familiar) to Jane Eyre—kept the MObama favorite in the limelight.
3. Karl Lagerfeld (last week: N/A)
Following on the strong Cruise collection for Chanel, the Kaiser unveiled his latest campaign, starring Georgia May Jagger and Baptiste Giabiconi.
4. Jil Sander (last week: N/A)
The debut of Navy, the ultrachic lower-priced Jil line, set tongues wagging about the Raf Simons-helmed label that still bears Sander’s name.
5. Patricia Field (last week: N/A)
Why Pat? Beats us. It can’t have anything to do with a certain Field-costumed movie coming out May 27, could it?
We’re all work and no play here at Style.com. Our intrepid executive editor, Nicole Phelps, and editor at large, Derek Blasberg, are both in the hard-at-work capital of the world, Saint-Tropez, for the Chanel Resort show. (They’ve gotten in a little play—Team Style.com lost a chic came of pétanque.) The full report comes tomorrow with the show, but there are plenty of teasers to keep us waiting in the meantime. Nicole’s already spotted Abbey Lee, Anja Rubik, and Hanne Gaby Odiele at fittings, Lagerfeld buddy Diane Kruger among the fashion-show tourists, and gleaned the plot of Karl’s Resort film Remember Now. “Aging playboy Pascal Greggory has a night and morning to remember, courtesy of Elisa Sednaoui,” she reports. Even those of us in not en route to St.-Trop can catch a preview of our own, below.

The debut of Karl’s latest campaign for Chanel eyewear—starring perennial KL favorites Freja Beha Erichsen and Baptiste Giabiconi—had the modelizers talking.
Required reading for the morning: Cathy Horyn’s take on the late Alexander McQueen from yesterday’s New York Times. [NYT]
The buzz last week—the non-caffeinated one—was all about Karl’s new Coca-Cola Light bottle. Turns out the Lagerfeld has shot a campaign for it, too, starring Coco Rocha (in a Lagerfeldian foulard) and bottle service by KL favorite Baptiste Giabiconi. Finally, all that practice pouring the Kaiser’s Cokes pays off! [WWD]
Hermès is launching fine jewelry—what it calls haute bijouterie—designed by Pierre Hardy. The first collection includes “Centaure” pieces inspired by horse hooves in rose gold, black jade, and diamonds, and cost in the ballpark of entire horses. [WWD]
