Designer Diary: Olivier Rousteing’s Postcard from L.A.

-------

Last week, Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing took a trip to L.A. In addition to exploring the city and enjoying the sunshine, the designer attended a fete in his honor at the Chateau Marmont and had a fitting with his Met Ball date, Kate Bosworth. Here, Rousteing shares the details of his L.A. adventure exclusively with Style.com.

L.A. is such a fascinating city, and this trip was the first time I really got to enjoy it. I love L.A.’s light, its energy, and the cultural diversity. It has such a strong and unique character. Angelinos have a genuine approach to fashion that’s so different from that of Parisians or New Yorkers. They can be so casual but so glamorous at the same time. It was a very inspiring trip.

Off a long flight and into the California sunshine. Love the sight of palm trees!

Coachella Chronicles: Kate Bosworth

-------

Coachella kicked off in full force last weekend, and Style.com reporter Alison Baenen has been talking to all the festival’s best-dressed concertgoers about their desert duds, favorite bands, and more. Below, Kate Bosworth shares her Coachella secrets.

Kate Bosworth is such a regular at Coachella that when we asked her how many times she’d been, she said she’d honestly lost count. We got the scoop on what she wore for day one of this year’s festivities.

What she’s wearing: A preview look—which she helped design—from Topshop’s upcoming Festival Collection.

The inspiration: “The design team and I thought a lot about the festival season, and, particularly with this collection, a lot of it was about the California girl. Obviously the perfect place to wear it was Coachella.”

Style tips for the festival circuit: “It’s all about the footwear! One year I had to wrap my feet in tape because I’d worn the wrong shoes on the Friday [of the festival]. It kind of ruined the experience. Now I’m all about comfort.”

Who she came to see: “I’m really excited about the Stone Roses. And I love Beach House.”

Gaia Repossi’s Big Bling

-------

Gaia Repossi is setting new rules for fine jewelry. While she works at her family’s nearly 100-year-old Place Vendôme house, her approach to precious metal and stones is anything but traditional. For instance, her ear cuffs, as well as her multi Berbère rings, are must-haves for fashionable cool girls like Diane Kruger and Kate Bosworth. And although her forward-thinking, often diamond-sprinkled wares indeed have an haute edge, she has never worked with large stones. Until now, that is. At an appointment yesterday, Repossi unveiled “Serti sur Vide” (which translates to “Set on Empty”), a collection of one-of-a-kind pieces that feature wide set, hand set stones. Our favorite ring is made with two diamonds: a twenty-four carat stone sparkles at the base of the hand and, in an innovative twist, the setting arcs under the finger and a six carat diamond sits on top. “My idea was to surprise people and show them that a large stone can still look modern and not age the [wearer],” Repossi told Style.com. Because of the hidden setting, the diamonds look as though they’re floating on your finger. It’s delicate, futuristic, and perfect for a twenty-first-century princess.

AG Denim, Hollywood-Style

-------

As stylist to some of Hollywood’s best-dressed starlets, Cher Coulter has made a name for herself by understanding her clients’ unique looks. Such was the reason that AG chose her to launch their debut Stylist Series—four capsule collections of jeans inspired by the actresses on her roster. “I work with fashion girls, so I wanted to carve out different personalities,” Coulter said of the design opportunity. “I am a celebrity fashion stylist, but hopefully I have different heads for different people. I’m not just a one-trick pony.”


For The Classic, Coulter was inspired by A.P.C. denim. “I turned to Françoise Hardy and the beat generation in late sixties Paris,” she said. They’re perfect for a young ingenue like Lizzie Olsen. The Eclectic is inspired by an artistic, bohemian girl, along with illustrations by Julie Verhoeven, who taught Coulter when she studied at Central Saint Martins in London. “She’s more of your model off duty,” she said of this second collection, which calls to mind Kate Bosworth. Coulter went back to London for The Rocker, taking cues from Balmain’s embellished jeans. A rockabilly vibe and darker colors toughened up the denim, which is just what you’d find on Coulter client Nicole Richie. And rounding out the series is The Bombshell, full of sexy, second-skin wares. “This girl was really influenced by nineties supermodels—statuesque women who weren’t afraid to wear really tight, skinny, high-waisted jeans.” They’re exactly what you’d expect to see on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Indeed, the capsules offer a diverse range of cuts, washes, and treatments, each of which befit AG but also speak to Coulter’s range and influence.

Dear Santa, Please Bring Me…A Very Long Letter?

-------

Last night’s annual tree-lighting at Rockefeller Center was a mob scene, but it wasn’t the evening’s only throng. Just down the street, shoppers, designers, and fashion fixtures like Kate Bosworth, Prabal Gurung and Karlie Kloss came together to toast the launch of Target, Neiman Marcus, and the CFDA’s collaborative holiday collection—and to do a little pre-shopping. A set of highball glasses designed by Joseph Altuzarra, and Christmas ornaments by Jason Wu seemed to be particularly hot-ticket items, and some designers appeared to have had their own lists in mind when creating their items: Both the duos behind Marchesa and Rag & Bone made outfits for their children. But what were they hoping for themselves? Click here for a slideshow of shoppers roaming the racks, and read on below to find out who’s stockpiling Jet-Set Travel and Peruvian liquor, and who’s hoping to find a Ferrari parked under their tree.
