South African-born, New York-based milliner Albertus Swanepoel has been creating hats for such brands as Proenza Schouler, Jason Wu, Alexander Wang, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Club Monaco since 2004. So today, a few fellow CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund alums—many of whom have sent his custom toppers down their catwalks—have made a little something for him. The hatter will open his very first exhibition, A Milliner’s Story, this evening at downtown boutique Odin, and his wares will rest on bespoke hat forms by the likes of Suno (above, bottom left), Band of Outsiders, Richard Chai (above, bottom right), and more. For instance, Cushnie et Ochs designers Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs turned out a noggin made from black snakeskin (above, top left), and Irene Neuwirth created a pink face adorned with semiprecious stones (above, top right). “I didn’t really give them any direction, and I was very impressed with [the designers'] craftsmanship and technical skills,” Swanepoel told Style.com. “Those things are very important to me.” Continue Reading “Albertus Swanepoel and Co.

With the Menswear, Resort, and Couture shows all wrapping this month, we’ve seen our fair share of trends. And while we’re tempted to try a daring crop top or a kitschy Hawaiian print, wearing something classic still feels appealing. Black lace made its way into the Pre-Fall collections, and the resulting looks are elegant and timeless, with a subtle, vampy edge.

Luella Bartley (left) has been missed since she shuttered her whimsical namesake label back in 2009 due to recession woes, so for us fashion folk, news of her comeback has stirred up a healthy dose of excitement. Today, WWD announced that Bartley and fellow Brit designer Katie Hillier have been appointed as the new design director and creative director, respectively, of Marc by Marc Jacobs‘ womenswear range. This marks the first time in the line’s fifteen-year-history that anyone other than Jacobs has been in the spotlight for a design role in the women’s collection. Hillier, who, according to reports, was tapped first and then brought Bartley on board, has worked with Marc by Marc on a freelance basis for the last ten years. Jacobs will continue to oversee the overall creative direction of the range, and the pair’s efforts will first be seen in the Fall 2014 collection.
On a much-buzzed-about corridor of Melrose Avenue, where labels like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg and Helmut Lang have all opened boutiques, a retail resurgence has begun. This Tuesday, Joie’s L.A. flagship joins the fray. The label is undertaking a major rollout—in addition to L.A., a Soho shop has just opened in New York, with a Meatpacking District branch and a San Francisco outpost on the way. Still, says creative director Serge Azria, “each store embodies the true feel of the brand: effortlessly chic yet casual.” Who do you call for that? Ryan Korban, the designer whose credits include Alexander Wang’s store and showroom and New York’s Edon Manor. Korban’s vision translated into a Parisian apartment that’s been sun-kissed by SoCal—an apartment, that is, that’s 1,640 square feet large, with herringbone floors and washed gray moldings. “L.A. has always been a big part of the Joie environment—even before we opened on the West Coast,” Korban explained. “Because it is such a large part of the brand, it has always come through in the design, even when we were doing New York stores.” Although New Yorkers are famously wary of all things L.A, we haven’t heard any complaints.
Joie is now open at 8414 Melrose Ave., L.A., (323) 330-1255.
