Hogan doesn’t slouch when it comes to collaborators: Karl Lagerfeld created four collections for the brand. Their latest partnership is with Love magazine editor in chief and super-stylist Katie Grand, who worked with the Tod’s Group-owned label on a colorful Spring capsule collection called Gang. Grand tweaked three sneakers (based on styles from the Hogan archive), a ballerina flat, leather purses, and oval sunglasses with a heart motif. To show it all off, she assembled one hell of a gang—Alessandra Ambrosio, Saskia de Brauw, Cara Delevingne, Linda Evangelista, and Edie Campbell, and more—for a one-off publication shot by Dan Jackson. Style.com has a first look at the new pieces, as well as a behind-the-scenes video from the set (below).
Continuing with Miuccia Prada’s “virtual princess” theme from her Fall 2012 show, Steven Miesel shot the ad campaign as a fantastical chess game. Here’s your first look at the accompanying campaign video, featuring models Vanessa Axente, Magdalena Frackowiak, Madison Headrick, Elza Luijendijk, Iselin Steiro, and Anne Vyalitsyna. Check, mate. The video debuts on Style.com, above.
When Magdalena Frackowiak stepped onto Prada’s menswear runway earlier this week in a sporty headband, vintage-looking fur, and color-blocked trousers, we immediately visualized Margot and Richie from The Royal Tenenbaums. Even if, as Tim Blanks pointed out in his review, that reference “seemed a tad literal” for Miuccia, it got us thinking about other recent looks that fit director Wes Anderson’s distinctive country club-meets-seventies-rec room aesthetic. At Carven, Guillaume Henry whipped up preppy madras for the boys and tailored seersucker separates for the girls, while No. 21′s Alessandro Dell’Acqua mixed and matched stripes and florals with off-kilter panache. Stella McCartney stirred up her own mise-en-scène, putting on a carnival-themed Resort presentation with models lounging on hammocks in slouchy suits (pictured) that would make Anderson’s costume designer jealous.

There were plenty of old-timers—relatively speaking, of course—among the angelic host at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show yesterday. “I think a lot of these young girls haven’t developed yet,” said Shannan Click, a three-time veteran of the show. “A lot of the girls here have experience. [The young ones] get to meet the older girls and learn from them.”
So how did the newbies—many of them longtime veterans of the editorial world—feel about their first time? “It’s pretty exciting because it’s so different from all the other shows,” said Jacquelyn Jablonski, a first-timer. “You can actually smile and be yourself.” (Asked about her favorite shows to walk in, she named Lanvin—though she wasn’t smiling, then. “I wasn’t one of the lucky girls who got to wear flats,” she recalled.) Her fellow Jablonski, Constance (no relation, by the way), was taking her inaugural VS walk, too. “I have actually my French friend Heloise [Guerin]; it’s her first time doing the show also,” she said. “It’s us two Frenchies having such a big moment together.”
Was the new class nervous about their undressed debuts? Nah. “My family knows and they’re more excited about this show than any others,” said Magdalena Frackowiak. “No, my mom’s not nervous about me wearing just underwear because it’s all hidden.” She’d take to the runway in a giant, tattooed pair of wings and a leather corset (pictured). “It’s just like wearing a dress,” she shrugged, “except there are parts missing.”
Wherever Karl Lagerfeld goes, a crowd is sure to follow. The designer’s magnetic force attracted hundreds of fashion editors and even more hangers-on last night to a converted bank on rue du Quatre-Septembre after a long day of shows to see his new capsule collection for Hogan, watch the short movie he made to promote the collaboration, and, of course, catch a glimpse of the man himself. Asked why he recruited Lagerfeld for the project, Diego Della Valle, chairman and CEO of Tod’s Group, which owns Hogan, said, “The answer is easy: because Karl is a genius. He gave a lot of energy and the result is very good; we’re very happy.” The results in question include sporty nylon jackets in silver or black, sneakers with double ankle straps, a trainer-cowboy boot hybrid, and flat bags with multicolored geometric flaps. All of them had starring roles in the Lagerfeld-directed video alongside Magdalena Frackowiak, Baptiste Giabiconi, and Sebastien Jondeau. They arrive in stores at the end of January.
