Ben Harper Makes Clothing For The People

-------


After showing a collection, most designers threaten far-flung vacations in the Maldives to regroup and re-inspire, or at the very least a private celebratory dinner downtown. Not Ben Harper, who’s part of the design collaborative Propr, now in its second season. Like the Energizer Bunny, he just keeps going. After the show Tuesday night at the Highline Ballroom, Harper invited guests to hang out, have a drink, and listen to a performance of his new band Relentless Seven. The presentation was short and sweet, featuring menswear fabrics reimagined for women’s shirtdresses, corduroy blazers, and his-and-her ponchos (imagine a Billy Jack power duo). His partners in crime, David Arquette and Paul Marlow, stuck around, as well as a front-row roster that could easily be mistaken for a celebrity listening party: Michael Stipe and Jack McBrayer (you know, the page from 30 Rock), Jane Pratt, and Rob Thomas. Laura Dern and Courteney Cox not only got to preview the Fall goods, they got to wear them as well. Dern, clad in a camel corduroy shirtdress, with children in tow (wearing mini-me versions of Propr), was enthusiastic about her husband’s second career. “I want to wear it all the time!” she raved. And she can. Any plans to branch out into childrenswear so it can be a family affair? Apparently they’re bigger than that. “I want to design for everyone from 4 to 94. I want to do a kids’ [line] and big-and-tall,” Harper explained. Clearly no child left behind here.

Hooping It Up For Spring

-------

Hoopskirts paraded down the runways and they didn’t just come in record numbers, they arrived in record proportions. At Yohji Yamamoto, the bride’s sweeping hem even inched its way over the catwalk’s edge and into the front row. While hoops are hardly a surprise at Betsey Johnson—”My most consistent, true-blue look has been the puffy skirt shape,” the designer said—they were less expected at Bottega Veneta, where Tomas Maier added rustic, romantic elements to his usual streamlined mix. More Versailles than home on the prairie were the perky bell-shaped minis at Alexander McQueen and Paul Smith. Click here to wrap your head around the trend, then tell us if Laura Dern was thinking outside the box or going around in circles when she took the look to the red carpet at last Sunday’s Golden Globes.
