Charivari Founder Dies, Ronnie Wood Designs, And More…

Selma Weiser, founder of cutting-edge Upper West Side boutique Charivari, died late last Friday at 84. Famous for giving Marc Jacobs his first job in fashion and discovering Yohji Yamamoto and Ann Demeulemeester, Weiser will be missed. [WWD]

Burberry’s Christopher Bailey and Net-a-Porter’s Natalie Massenet were named Members of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire by the Queen this Saturday, to which we say, most excellent. [WWD]

The best part of this article about Peaches Geldof kissing is a girl is that the headline calls it “do[ing] a LiLo.” Acting will officially not be part of Miss Lohan’s legacy. [The Daily Mail]

Ronnie Wood wants to make you a Liberty of London jersey dress with a matching clutch. You’ve been warned. [Grazia Daily]

To Do This Weekend: Subterranean Shopping At Orchard Street’s Ale Et Ange

-------


Shops may still be shuttering in other parts of Manhattan, but the tiny slice of the Lower East Side south of Delancey and east of Allen is defying the economic slump, as empty storefronts blink to life with some of the best new places to eat, party, shop, and gallery-hop. Everyone from Bill Murray to Hamish Bowles has been spotted at chicster subterranean boîte B.East since it opened last October. And Brown, the bustling eatery on Hester, still packs them in for baked eggs and café au lait. Tucker’s Gaby Basora opened a studio-cum-shop on Essex and newcomer boutique Bloodline carries immaculately curated objets for the home, vintage furniture, and gifts. A recent rumor has it that even Marc Jacobs wants in on the action, and was eyeing (and by “eyeing” we mean “making an offer on”) a storefront on the corner of Hester and Orchard streets. The space eventually went to Project No. 8 owners Brian Janusiak and Elizabeth Beer, who will open their annex later this month, stocking mostly menswear. Jacobs may have missed his chance at the space, but one of his former employees has managed to score a spot across the street, at 37C Orchard. The catch? You’ve got to find the floral-painted metal basement hatch door in the sidewalk and descend the stairs—hold onto the rail, they’re steep—to enter Ale et Ange. “We get a lot of confused neighborhood Chinese men peeking in, mistaking us for their secret gambling club. It happens at least once a day,” says owner Osore Oyagha. No illicit gaming here. It’s a gem of a shop dressed up as an elegantly ramshackle flat, complete with Turkish rugs, stacks of old books and jazz records, and a vintage kitchen setup, along with racks of the namesake label designed by Oyagha and his partner, Eloise Simonet. The clothes are slim, sixties-inspired, and work anywhere from a night at B.East to a day at the office.

Blasblog From Venice: And So It Begins

-------

Rev up the water taxis, the Biennale has officially begun. First up last night was a group show called Unconditional Love, near the Arsenale grounds. Olympia Scarry’s installation—a person laying under a sheet, feet poking out, with lights running on either side of the body—attracted the likes of Patrick Demarchelier, Natalia Vodianova and Justin Portman, Olya and Charles Thompson, Russian Vogue‘s Aliona Doletskaya, and Dasha Zhukova. Scarry’s sister Fiona and their father were there, too. “I don’t know why she didn’t ask me to lay under the sheet,” he joked. Also on display at the show was artist Dasha Fursey’s tribute to Vodianova: a sketch of the model that was illuminated and then aged, and was aptly called Dorian Gray. Across town, the English artist Steve McQueen had a show as well, which many people tried to squeeze in between dinners at Harry’s Bar (obviously), Do Forni, and Cipriani’s. But for those who really wanted to stay out late, Stefano Tonchi, David Maupin, and Brian Phillips hosted a welcome party at the Bauer Hotel, deejayed by Terence Koh. That’s where Jefferson Hack, Neville Wakefield, and Diana Widmaier Picasso eased into the Venetian lifestyle. Carine Roitfeld, Marc Jacobs, and Cecilia Dean are due to arrive tomorrow—and they said no one would come this year because of the recession. “Oh, I don’t believe that,” Yvonne Force Villareal said. “I love Venice. It’s my favorite city in the world and it’s always fun here.” She wasn’t kidding. Perhaps for the first time in my entire life, I was one of the first to leave a party—in the wee hours—as other revelers continued to file in.
