Fashion’s Night Out Ramps Up

-------

There are plenty of New York fashion week fêtes next month to look forward to—including a Coco Avant Chanel premiere and the relaunch party for Pop magazine—but, trust us, none of them will compare to the party that the CFDA, NYC & Company, the city of New York, and Vogue have planned for Fashion’s Night Out on September 10. As of last count, over 700 stores across all five boroughs have signed up. And as we’ve mentioned before, designers, celebrities, models, and other fashion types will be making special appearances in an effort to lure shoppers back into the shops, and in the process jumpstart the local economy and benefit charities like the NYC AIDS Fund and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. On our to-do list that night: Hit Kirna Zabête for some face time with Thakoon Panichgul, Jason Wu, and the Proenza Schouler boys; make a stop at Rag & Bone for some free beer and Irish band tunes; and swing by 3.1 Phillip Lim to snap up some limited-edition collector’s items. But the list of fashion boldfacers—from Manolo Blahnik and Michael Kors to Mary-Kate and
Ashley Olsen and Sasha Pivovarova—who will be out and about that night is long. For complete details, visit www.fashionsnightout.com/retailers.

Thakoon Addition Quickly Subtracting Itself From Racks

-------


Thakoon Addition hit stores last week and we’ve been hearing some very impressive tales of sales. (It can’t be hurting that a slew of Resort shows have created a sort of fashion week lite. We’ve definitely spotted editors in TA.) Panichgul’s best-ofs line has the windows at Barneys New York on Madison Avenue (pictured here), where fashion director Julie Gilhart reports, “Thakoon [Addition] has been selling so well.” Gilhart specifically mentions the asymmetric hemmed Falling Petals dress for $895 and the floral lace draped pocket tank frock for $785. Bergdorf Goodman’s Roopal Patel tells us much the same story. “Let’s just say there will be many PYTs running around in Thakoon Addition,” she says. Further downtown, Kirna Zabête is eagerly awaiting its shipment. “We’re expecting it any day,” says Beth Buccini. “But people are asking about it.” Meanwhile, Thakoon Addition Spring 2010, which hits stores with Resort in November, is ready for editors to have a look and place their orders. Check out this sneak peek, above right.
