Yves Carcelle, Longtime LVMH Executive, Dies at 66

-------

Yves CarcelleYves Carcelle, the visionary executive who helped turn Louis Vuitton into one of the world’s preeminent luxury brands, died on Sunday in Paris. He was 66, and had been battling cancer. Carcelle joined LVMH in 1989 and over the years rose to chairman and chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton before he stepped down in 2011. In his role he was responsible for opening Vuitton stores around the world and expanding the house’s product categories, but he will be best remembered for enlisting Marc Jacobs to become the artistic director of the brand in 1997, ushering in a new era for the monogrammed trunk maker, one that included ready-to-wear, artist collaborations, and multimillion-dollar fashion shows.

“It is with deep emotion and regret that I learned of Yves Carcelle’s passing,” Bernard Arnault, chairman and chief executive of LVMH, said in a statement. “A tireless traveler, Yves was a pioneer who embodied the image and values of Louis Vuitton. Always curious, passionate and in motion, he was one of the most inspiring leaders of men and women whom I have ever had the privilege of knowing. My thoughts today are with Yves’ family, as well as with all his former staff at Louis Vuitton, who will long remember him as a manager and mentor who was accessible, human, and sincere. Today, the LVMH Group has lost one of its closest and dearest friends and I join in the sorrow of each of us as we mourn Yves’ passing, but also importantly in our collective appreciation for his life, his work and his legacy.”​

Louis Vuitton Is Setting Up Shop at Dover Street Market

-------

lv-doverDover Street Market is still on everyone’s lips. The concept store just made its social media debut with @doverstreetmarketlondon on Instagram, and its emerging designers like Melitta Baumeister and Hood by Air are generating lots of buzz for the fast-growing empire. At the London outpost, racks of Comme des Garçons (the owner of DSM), Prada, Supreme, and up-and-comers like Craig Green and Phoebe English will soon be joined by a particularly luxurious label: Louis Vuitton. The Telegraph reports that an edit of women’s shoes, bags, jewelry, and ready-to-wear from Nicolas Ghesquière’s debut Fall ’14 collection will be available for two months starting this week (just in time for the London shows). Not crossing the pond this season? Don’t fret: DSM is planning Vuitton pop-ups in New York and Tokyo, too.

Runway to Red Carpet: Celebs Embrace “Summer Blacks,” and Three New Trendsetters

-------

080914_Runway_To_Red_Carpet-blogIf you haven’t heard yet, “summer blacks” (©Style.com) are in. Not only has the tried-and-true trend cropped up in the streets, the recent Resort collections, and the Style.com office, but it’s also been making frequent appearances on the red carpet. A glowing Rosamund Pike, who’s pregnant with her second child, chose a black, one-shouldered pleated Prada baby-doll dress for the Berlin premiere of Hector and the Search for Happiness on Tuesday. Heidi Klum rocked a shimmering, form-fitting Roberto Cavalli LBD for Wednesday’s America’s Got Talent postshow event in New York. And the next day, Marion Cotillard took to the red carpet in a black wool Dior dress from the Fall ’14 runway at the London premiere of Two Days, One Night.

While a lot of celebs played it safe this week and stuck to trusty styles that couldn’t fail, a trio of relatively unknown ladies caught our eye. They might not be household names just yet, but these fresh faces piqued our interest with standout styles. On Monday, What If actress Mackenzie Davis stepped out in a look from Nicolas Ghesquiè
re’s Fall ’14 Louis Vuitton collection for the film’s New York premiere. Elsewhere in the city, Charlotte Le Bon posed on the red carpet in a sheer, lace-paneled white frock from red-carpet favorite Elie Saab’s Pre-Fall ’14 lineup at Monday night’s premiere of her new film, The Hundred-Foot Journey. The following evening, Hannah Tointon turned heads in a pale pink satin Spring ’14 Prabal Gurung sheath at the world premiere of The Inbetweeners 2 in London. Needless to say, these Hollywood freshmen are off to a promising start. We’ll be watching, ladies.

Here, all of this week’s red-carpet highlights.

The 15 Stylish Looks You Loved Most This Week

-------

look of the dayThis week, Style.com editors turned their attention to the trends you’ll be wearing this Fall. Our Look of the Day polls asked you to vote on everything from patched-up jeans to androgynous boiler suits, plus a Miami Swim Week round-up to get you inspired for your holiday vacations. On Monday, we rounded up a handful of utilitarian flight suits we’ve spotted of late. You voted for Hanne Gaby Odiele’s metallic number, which stood out in a sea of stilettos and couture during Paris Fashion Week in February. A close runner-up was Edie Campbell, who opted for a workwear-inspired suit last year at Glastonbury.

Tuesday, we took note of another major street style trend: patches. Laetitia Paul’s Louis Vuitton jacket covered in giant, varsity-style insignia looked especially fresh on the streets of London. Tommy Ton also spotted a girl with Dior’s patched-up mini bag, which looked cool with combat boots. We’ll be trying out the trend this fall with easy-to-wear patchwork jeans, like the ones in Christopher Kane’s Resort collection. On Wednesday, our focus shifted to the bronzed babes at Miami Swim Week, where Mara Hoffman showed another winning collection. She posed backstage with models in her super-bright, tribal-inspired suits, which took first place in your book. We saw even more bold looks at RVCA, Gottex, and Wildfox. What else was on our minds this week? Off-the-shoulder silhouettes, landscape prints, and so much more. Click here for a slideshow of the winning looks, plus a few runners-up.

Runway to Red Carpet: Ladies in Lace and Cues from ’80s Prom Queens

-------

When it comes to fashion, the red carpet can often be filled with the same old, same old. But now and again, some bold celebrities shake things up with experimental, next-level looks. Here’s what’s feeling fresh this week.

Zoe Saldana Guardians of the Galaxy Los Angeles Louis Vuitton Resort 2015From classic hits to updated takes on the past, a wealth of noteworthy wares walked down the red carpet this week. A handful of stars opted for frocks with lace or insets. Cate Blanchett and Zoe Saldana chose looks with all-over lace. Saldana attended the L.A. premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy in an ensemble from the Louis Vuitton Resort ’15 catwalk on Monday night, and Blanchett stepped out in a white lace-covered cocktail dress with butterfly sleeves from Elie Saab’s Spring ’13 Haute Couture offering for a SK-II beauty event in Shanghai the following evening. In Hollywood, Diane Kruger turned up at the Fox All-Star party in a black Marios Schwab Resort ’15 jumpsuit with a lace keyhole cutout, which was a popular detail for the season.

A surprising, yet decidedly fresh trend this week was the contemporary take on the 80s prom dress. Perhaps one too many Sixteen Candles reruns were the cause for inspiration, but several celebs seemed to be channeling retro prom queens. Rachel McAdams opted for a one-shouldered Zuhair Murad Fall ’14 Haute Couture jewel-toned number with a modern interpretation of a bustle at the hip for the New York premiere of A Most Wanted Man. Kylie Minogue went for the shimmer-effect, donning a gold metallic Blumarine Fall ’14 frock for a photo call for The Voice in Sydney. Selena Gomez decided on a more literal approach, layering piles of tulle over a Dior Spring ’14 cocktail dress for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation gala in France. It appears there are still a few lessons we can learn from the decade of big hair, sleeves, and skirts.
