There’s a heat wave in NYC, and the only places I want to be are inside with the AC on or by the pool. Being the sun worshipper that I am, I would take the second option in a heartbeat. But what to wear by the pool? I take my cues from Lisa Marie Fernandez‘s Resort collection. Last week, when I stopped by to see it, I was surprised by all of the new silhouettes and fabrics that expand upon what she has previously done. Fernandez built her name in the swim market with her neoprene, surf-inspired pieces. This time around, she changed her look completely. The must-have item is the terry-cloth poncho, which comes in colors ranging from earth tones to neon orange. Sadly, we have to wait until November to get our hands on it, but for now, here are two great lightweight options from Lemlem ($200, available at Lemlem.com) and Club Monaco ($98, available at ClubMonaco.com) that will keep you cool right now.
Coach’s latest trump card? Hugo Guinness. To celebrate its recent teamwork with the British linocut artist, the brand threw a casino-themed bash at the Jane Hotel ballroom last night, complete with a blackjack table, an illusionist, and a house-of-cards builder—a nod to the fact that the collaboration, in addition to leather goods, includes a very covetable deck of hand-drawn Coach playing cards. Guinness quietly occupied a banquette area while Maria Cornejo chatted with friends nearby and Lisa Marie Fernandez tried her luck at roulette. (She only recently got the bug, Fernandez said: “I just got back from the Chanel party in Las Vegas and I won big!”)
For the collaboration, which makes use of both original and archival images, Guinness explained that he’d briefly given up his normal routine of working at home in Brooklyn in order to take meetings at Coach’s Madison Avenue headquarters. Office life, he confessed, seems like a world apart. “It’s very different, isn’t it? There’s a whole protocol there—people come in, and then they disappear again, and you don’t know why they’ve come in,” he said. “It’s just weird, it’s a different world.” But it may start to feel familiar soon enough—Guinness and the brand are already thinking about doing a second project, potentially for the holiday season.
The craze for surfing—or, at the very least, its stylish accoutrements—has taken hold coast to coast of late, but Miami’s got a better claim on wave-rider style than many other locales: It’s hard to get closer to the water. Starting this week, surfin’ birds down south can head to Miami’s the Webster, which is opening Surf the Webster, a shop-in-shop stocked with the fashion world’s best beach-ready gear. There’s swimwear from Lisa Marie Fernandez, Sundek, and Tori Praver (above right); clothes and gear from Saturdays, New York’s surf store du jour; accessories from Fouta (above left); and even a board, made exclusively for the Webster by Baron Wells. A portion of the proceeds from sales goes to the Surfrider Foundation, too. All that’s missing: lessons. But dressing the part has got to be at least half the battle.
Tori Praver bikini top, $105, and bottom, $85, and Fouta beach blanket, $126, available at Surf the Webster, opens tomorrow and stays up through the summer at the Webster, 1220 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, (305) 674-7899, www.thewebstermiami.com.
