Let the Games Begin

-------


“I haven’t done a puzzle since I was 13,” Jason Wu confessed last night at Shiseido’s RxArt party for Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s jigsaw puzzle and its own new Future Solution LX skincare line. “I’m definitely going to buy one. But knowing me, I’ll toss everything else aside until I finish it!” At least the missed work day will be for a good cause. Sales of the 200-piece puzzle, which features Kusama’s Self-Portrait (2008), will benefit RxArt’s program to engage hospital patients with contemporary art. (Aptly, the 80-year-old artist currently lives—by choice—in a Tokyo mental institution.) Kusama skipped the party, but quite a crowd turned up at the airy West Village space to celebrate, including Lauren Santo Domingo, Olivier Zahm and André Saraiva, Terry Richardson, and the party perennials of the downtown cool set, Sophomore’s Chrissie Miller, Jen Brill, and Nate Lowman, who split DJ duties with Leo Fitzpatrick for the night.

The rub with puzzles, of course, is finding the time to complete them. Vena Cava’s Lisa Mayock, who recently moved the line’s offices from Brooklyn to Manhattan, was glad the party’s nearby location gave her a few minutes to admire Kusama’s self-portrait. Daphne Guinness professed to being a fan, too, but the heiress/designer/muse may be a little busy for puzzling: “I live in New York now, but I’m basically flying all the time for work.” But with cold weather coming, a good puzzle may be just the rationale a party girl needs for a night at home. Opening Ceremony’s Carol Lim agreed. “I’m going to take up puzzles again,” she said. “It’s the perfect excuse for staying in.”

Marios At Morgans

-------

Marios Schwab was the guest of honor at a dinner hosted by Nadja Swarovski last night in the recently rehabbed Morgans Hotel penthouse. “I haven’t been here since, like, 1999,” said one reveler by way of greeting. But the designer didn’t seem to mind. The London-based Schwab was in town to show off his signature collection and to do some work on Halston, which he’ll debut next season. The designer’s goal was also to put faces to the many New York names he’s learned since the 2006 launch of his own label. Lauren Santo Domingo (pictured far right), Jen Brill, and model Lily Aldridge (pictured far left) wore cocktail dresses from his Spring line. During her toast, Swarovski touted Schwab’s vision and could barely contain her excitement about the February launch of his first Halston effort. But it takes more than a point of view to pull off a pair of collections at once; it also takes a good deal of confidence. When asked the previous day about the challenges of producing two labels, Schwab gamely stepped up to bat, replying, “As long as you’re really talented, you can do both.”

A Day In The Life Of: Eddie Borgo, Jewelry Designer

-------

Over the past year, Eddie Borgo has become one of New York’s jewelry design darlings. To wit, his neo-punk chic cone bracelet was the accessory for editors to be sporting during fashion week. Like many young American designers, Borgo headed this week to Paris for sales appointments—and yes, some shopping and parties. Here’s what Eddie did yesterday.
October 3, 2009

8:50 a.m. Wake up. Cappuccino! Yesterday was great. Ikram Goldman, Sally Singer, and Mark Holgate all came by.

10:00 a.m. Photographer Thierry Chomel arrives to shoot the collection for WWD. I met him last season; it was so nice to catch up.

11:15 a.m. Lauren Santo Domingo and Derek Blasberg arrive to choose pieces for Lauren for an Interview shoot. Keegan (Singh, Borgo’s boyfriend) says hello in his pink bathrobe. Lauren loves the pointed floral quartz earrings and wears a necklace out.

12:30 p.m. Jump in a taxi and head to St. Germain for lunch with designer Jen Kao at Brasserie Lipp. We sit next to Vogue Italia‘s Franca Sozzani. I didn’t have the nerve to ask for a photo. She’s so beautiful!  Continue Reading “A Day In The Life Of: Eddie Borgo, Jewelry Designer” »

Shot By Arthur, Zac Leaves the Park, And More…

How much would you pay for a signed portrait by Arthur Elgort? Well, if you buy $2,500 worth of Dior duds on September 10, the photog will throw in a picture for free. Bonus: Vogue cover girl Charlize Theron will be signing (this year’s) September issues all night. [WWD]


The Church of Bulgaria is urging its countrymen to skip the Madonna concert this weekend or, it seems, risk going to hell. Now that’s a toughie. [Yahoo News]


Zac Posen is ditching the tents at his late-night slot and heading for an a.m. viewing at the Altman Building, citing the desire for an “intimacy between model, clothing, and audience.” Yes, at 9 a.m., everyone gets to know each other quite well. [WWD]


Social register alert: Amanda Hearst is dating Alejandro Santo Domingo. This means she could be Lauren Santo Domingo‘s sister-in-law, and all the best clothes in the world will be divided between them. [Page Six]

Stam Is (Sort Of) The New Nathan Bogle

-------


The apocalyptic storm that hit just as Rag & Bone’s party to celebrate its Intermix launch began was no impediment for the crowd that packed the Ace Hotel’s sofa-strewn lobby. “I’m so surprised,” said the label’s taller designing half, Marcus Wainwright. “I thought it would be just me and David [Neville] with the people who work here.” The event’s hostess, Jessica Stam, it turns out, is now more than just a friend of the house. “We’ve been designing some clothes together,” said Neville. Stam, however, corrected the statement a hair. “It’s more of a collaboration, really,” she said. At any rate, the newest designing model might just be called on to fill in when Neville takes his paternity leave after wife Gucci Westman has their second baby, due in two weeks. (Though, according to Wainwright, company policy only allows a single week off.) The trio stayed mum on the details of the Stam & Bone pieces, which will make their debut for Spring 2010. “Everyone’s here hoping we’d get to see a little bit,” said Lauren Santo Domingo, who showed off her hand-painted Christian Cota dress and new Chanel bucket bag. “Stam’s got great style. Everyone loves to see what she’s wearing.”
