Shop the Look: Constellation Prizes

Baby, what’s your sign? Even if you aren’t an astrology junkie, we can all agree that star-and-moon motifs have a universal appeal this season. Maybe it began with the fuzzy Saint Laurent cardigan from Fall ’13, which turned up on off-duty models and actresses alike, or perhaps it was Gravity, the blockbuster film set in the stunning Milky Way Galaxy. Slip on a pair of star-studded heels for a ladylike take on the trend, or opt for a glint-y clutch for a night on the town. However, if you’re into horoscopes, you can always just wear a zodiac charm and let destiny take care of the rest. Shop our favorite cosmos-inspired pieces by Khai Khai, Jimmy Choo, and more, below.

Spade Returns, Sleepily


The lovable louche lives. His wardrobe is his pj’s. “I was looking at old magazines and pictures of all these great artists, like David Hockney and Jean-Michel Basquiat, and my friend Glenn O’Brien, who is always walking around in pajamas,” said Andy Spade this week. The look isn’t new—Julian Schnabel is its acknowledged philosopher king—but it’s lately been catching on, for women as well as for men. So Spade and his partner in Partners & Spade, Anthony Sperduti, decided to do something about it. In his first full-scale fashion outing since Spade launched Kate Spade and Jack Spade, the his and hers accessories lines, Spade is debuting Sleepy Jones, a collection of tailored pajama separates and boxer shorts for him and for her.

Sleepy Jones’ pieces, in heritage prints and custom-designed ones by artists like Wes Lang, will be available exclusively online at (Sarah Lerfel from Colette has already expressed interest in stocking the collection, but Spade and Sperduti’s real vision is a Sleepy Jones store of its own.) The pieces are sleep-friendly and casual but tweaked for extra-boudoir use: the collars more pointed, breast pockets added, to be more like dress shirts. (Spade confessed he’s been sleeping in old dress shirts.) His role models are the artists, past and present, who really can wear their pajamas all day, and who think nothing of wearing them out, with a blazer or jeans. “There’s kind of a movement in this direction. I don’t think it’ll go away, because people are working at home more, and working online,” he said. “I do think more people can do [this look] than think they can.”

If rumpled elegance is the name of the look, it’s also what sets it apart from the existing big players in the underwear market, who tend to demand (and depict) semi-superhuman physiques. “I don’t have the six-pack, and I don’t identify with that,” Spade added. “I just want to see a guy like Juergen Teller in his boxer shorts, reading the newspaper. I would be like, ‘I want those!’ No one’s ever shown that.”

A Brad Brad Birthday


The party last night may have been at No. 8, but for Brad Goreski’s birthday, thrown by Kate Spade, the magic number was 35. Not that guests like Christina Ricci and Christian Siriano could easily tell from the stylist’s boyish, bespectacled good looks, whose silhouette was printed on napkins and helium balloons, and black Dsquared² tuxedo jacket with sequined lapels. “I picked this out in the showroom,” he said. “Isn’t it cute?” Goreski, who paired it with a matching sequined vest and glittering shoes, is indeed one of the rare birds who could pull off the look.

Others, given the August humidity, had gone for more casual ensembles. Alejandro Ingelmo was in a simple cotton T-shirt, though he seemed ready for finer fall fare. “I can’t wait for the temperatures to drop so that I can wear more clothes,” he said. With September only a few weeks away, conversation naturally turned to work. “There’s not really summer Fridays anymore,” Ingelmo observed. Siriano, nearby, chatted about his upcoming TV projects.

And Deborah Lloyd of Kate Spade, where Goreski consults, is doing double duty this week. Tonight, Kate Spade unveils a collaboration with Garance Doré. “I’m such a huge fan of her photos and particularly her illustrations,” Lloyd said. “It’s completely aspirational for me—this idea that these women can just walk out their door and be so effortless.” With Doré’s eye in mind, the capsule collection includes classically chic handbags, frocks, and a seasonless trenchcoat, perhaps some of which will make it into Lloyd’s Rio de Janeiro wardrobe. The company is opening a store there this month. “The big thing is what to pack!” Lloyd said, just before a birthday cake was pulled out, accompanied by a couple of drag queens. “Brad and I have been going over our outfits,” she added. From the look of the birthday boy and the performers, surely sequins would do the trick.

On Our Radar: Chance


When I was a kid, my mom used to dress me in stripes, and ever since then, I have racked up a growing collection of striped pieces (I still keep the tradition going today with my daughter Gloria). Especially in the summer, cutoffs and a striped top are my go-to weekend outfit, so of course, when I first saw Chance’s California-inspired collection of timeless basics, I was immediately drawn to it. From the boatneck shirts in turquoise, green, and blue to the canvas totes and printed beach towels, it’s all so perfect for summer. (The one-year-old brand’s designer, Julia Leach, knows a thing or two about stripes—she’s the ex-creative director of Kate Spade.) And though it’s just her second collection, filled with a range of long cotton dresses, tanks, and shorts, it’s already exclusively stocked at Barneys. It’s all very basic, super chic, and classic. If you are going away to the beach this weekend, you might want to visit her Web site or stop by Barneys for a quick shopping spree.
