The sun’s out in New York, half the world seems to be in California for Coachella (more on that to come), so no wonder we’ve got summer on the brain. It’s evidently on Tamara Taichman’s mind, too. The French Elle editor turned accessory designer behind Tila March has created her first swimwear line, available now from La Redoute, the French mail-order catalog. (Don’t raise an eyebrow: La Redoute has collaborated in the past with Yves Saint Laurent, Sonia Rykiel, Azzaro, and Robert Clergerie.) Taichman looked to Lou Doillon—who also models the new collection, above—for inspiration for the bikini and maillot styles. And to complete the look, she’s created—what else—two shoes, a wedge and a flat sandal. Now all we need is for the mercury to catch up with her.
Tila March for La Redoute is available at laredoute.fr. For more Tila March, be sure to check out the Fall 2011 Accessories Index .
Club Monaco continues its streak of high-profile lookbook and campaign shooters this season, hiring Ryan McGinley to lens its Spring 2011 ads. It’s tapped top talent, too: Lauren Hutton, Lou Doillon, Tali Lennox, and the Virgins’ Donald Cumming all appear in the spots. But they’ve also got starring roles in the behind-the-scenes video by Tracy Antonopoulos debuting exclusively here on Style.com. Cumming stars not as a rocker frontman or a model, but as a wayward videographer named Johnnie who, while napping during a shoot, dreams of a Doillon romance. And when he wakes up…well, let’s just say dreams can come true.
French It girl Lou Doillon has been turning more and more heads lately, but she’s been a muse to designer Vanessa Bruno for years. Doillon stars once again in the latest of Bruno’s short films, Miracle, which she created with director Stéphanie Di Giusto to spotlight her Spring 2011 collection. Bruno opened her first store in L.A. last summer, and it looks like the city’s summery vibe has rubbed off on the Paris-based designer. Joining Doillon on screen is the label’s new U.S. ambassador, the Los Angeles-based model and girl-about-town Jessica Joffe, and the spot was shot on a gorgeous beach—though, admittedly, in Cuba, not L.A.
First The Row got eyewear, and now the Olsens are at it again, debuting two styles of specs for their Elizabeth and James line (pictured). In fairness, they are perennially bespectacled, so it makes sense. [WWD]
Menswear designer Michael Bastian is dipping a toe into the waters of womenswear with a women’s counterpart to his Gant by Michael Bastian line, which he’ll show in a coed presentation with men’s this New York fashion week. The Gant customer is “more of a fashion girl, not a classic preppy,” Bastian says. [WWD]
Lacoste helps fight the good fight with a new promotion to benefit Doctors Without Borders: Take any old polo to Lacoste’s NYC store on June 3, and get a certificate for a new one—plus the brand will donate $10 to the nonprofit, to boot. This is tied into the USA show Royal Pains, but try not to hold that against it. [Stylelist]
The Spice Girls are reportedly trying to reunite for a new tour, but Victoria Beckham apparently has moved on and doesn’t want to participate. It’s almost as if she had something else going on! [Jezebel]
And style icon Lou Doillon adds another gig to her résumé: photographer. Her first solo show has just bowed at Paris’ Galerie W. [Dazed Digital]
