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.

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” »
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]
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.”
Two words: metal fringe. Guests at last night’s private sale of Eddie Borgo baubles were going gaga over the designer’s new group of bracelets and necklaces fringed in metal—a reaction the designer was definitely anticipating. “I’ve been dying to make these pieces,” explained Borgo, showing off a super-sized silver bangle punctuated with some seriously disco fringe. “The thing is, they’re expensive, so I had to wait.” Borgo’s faith in the fringe is reflected in the fact that the silver bangle features in the first of a series of posters he’s created, collaborating with boyfriend Keegan Singh and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld. A copy of the limited-edition print (pictured here), which features Vanessa Traina modeling Borgo’s new bijoux, was hanging in the window of Lauren Santo Domingo’s Gramercy Park abode, where last night’s sale was held, and a few lucky guests got to take home a print as a gift. “It was all Julia’s idea,” he said. “We’re only doing a few at a time. My dad’s a printer, actually, and he ran these 50 for me as a favor. We’ll do another image next season.” By that point, we’re guessing, the private-sale fringe frenzy will be a pretty public phenomenon.
