Maniamania Takes Diamonds to the Dark Side

-------

Lindsey Wixon for Mania Mania

Maniamania’s darkly elegant baubles are about to find luxe new life as the brand branches out with Immortalia, its first fine-jewelry effort, set to launch on themaniamania.com on March 10. Fans of the five-year-old line’s quietly macabre aesthetic will no doubt delight in Immortalia’s jumping-off point: Victorian and Georgian memento mori (from the Latin meaning “remember you will die”) trinkets. Here, though, the ghoulish 19th-century wares have been stripped of more literal motifs like skulls, withering blooms, et al., in favor of sophisticated styles that should please a variety of customers. Pieces range from Equinox, an upscale take on the knuckle ring featuring a delicate crescent moon with a pavé of gray and white diamonds, to Mineralia, a whopping cocktail ring in white gold, rutilated quartz, and champagne diamonds. For those with marriage on their minds, there are both an engagement and wedding band on offer. All nine of the collection’s styles, which are priced between $1,180 and $8,200, are handmade to order in New York using only ethically sourced and certified gems. The release also reunites Maniamania with Lindsey Wixson, who lends her otherworldly pout to the campaign. As designer Melanie Kamsler tells it, “We haven’t deviated too far. Our muse and inspirations are the same, it’s just a more sophisticated interpretation.” Have a first look at the collection here, exclusively on Style.com.

Chanel Is a Fashion Machine. Literally.

-------

In addition to Lindsey Wixson, Jamie Bochert, Ming Xi, Soo Joo Park, and Nadja Bender, the star of Chanel’s Lagerfeld-lensed Pre-Spring ’14 video is a literal Chanel fashion machine, which gobbles up said models, and then releases them dripping in tweed and pearls. Could this magical mechanical contraption be a metaphor for the house’s designer-cum-filmmaker? Lagerfeld’s ability to churn out one lust-worthy collection after another is superhuman, at the very least. What would Freud have to say about this? Have a gander at Chanel’s new short, above.

Will H&M Become a Paris Fashion Week Fixture?

-------

Cara at H&MWhen you think Paris fashion week, H&M isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to mind—however, that may be about to change. Today, WWD reports that the high street retailer, who held its first star-studded party and runway romp for its elevated H&M Studio range during PFW last February, is coming back for round two. The Fall ’14 event will be hosted at a yet-to-be-disclosed venue on February 26. Judging by the Fall ’13 event, which featured the likes of Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls, and Lindsey Wixson on the catwalk, and Ashley Olsen, Carine Roitfeld, and Chloë Moretz in the front row, it seems H&M’s February showing is poised to become a fashion week favorite.

On the First Day Of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me, Two Furry Donkeys

Love's Christmas Party

Donkeys, magicians, and rabbits. Did the circus come to London? Nope, just the Love magazine Christmas party, held last night at Camden’s Lady Ottoline, and hosted by editor in chief Katie Grand and Neil Barrett. Donkeys greeted partygoers upon arrival, and somehow, we were not surprised. This is LOVE after all, and it has its own quirky way of celebrating not just a great year, but also, its advent calendar, which is now at day 18. Thus far, it’s featured the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Georgia May Jagger, and Lindsey Wixson prancing around in their Calvin Klein smalls. Even Clara, Katie Grand’s pet rabbit, was a calendar girl.

Edie Campbell, Florence Welch, Arizona Muse, Paul Simonon, Rankin, Tim Walker, and many more attended last night’s fete. And given that it’s almost year’s end, guests shared their highlights from 2013. “Standing in the hurricane on the beach at Dungeness with Sølve Sundsbø getting soaked whilst shooting a ‘summer’ story was kind of funny,” said Grand of her most memorable moment this year. Lulu Kennedy, LOVE‘s editor at large, also weighed in. “An editorial meeting presided over by Clara. She sat on a cushion in the middle of the table looking very regal, chewing our notes and printouts.”
