Coco Rocha certainly made a good impression on Dennis Basso at the Met gala.

Chic Sweats Are On The Fashion Fast Track


Maybe it’s the upcoming Summer Olympic Games—the opening ceremony is July 27 in London—but track pants have really taken off. No, not the ones with logos written across the bum or those stretched-out old standbys you wear on the couch at home. We’re talking about tailored sweats that simply need a pair of heels to go from day to night. At Bottega Veneta‘s recent Resort presentation, Tomas Maier showed color-blocked tracksuits as weekend wear, while Neil Barrett and Chloé‘s Clare Waight Keller featured tapered versions with elastic at the ankles for Fall.’s own Marina Larroude was snapped test-driving a pair during Milan fashion week. Her take on the comfy-chic trend? “I love how you can dress them up with a silk shirt and dress them down with a tank or sneakers.”

Let’s Festa


There’s a Brazilian saying that goes, for a good party, you need a good mix of people. The gathering I attended last night, hosted by Roberto Thompson and Amalia Spinardi at their house in São Paulo and held in my honor, was exactly that. In the group were fashion enthusiasts, designers, editors, and artists, including Marina Abramovic, who is celebrating the holidays in Brazil with her pal Riccardo Tisci.

In between dancing to remixes of Edith Piaf tunes and sipping caipirinhas, and despite the distractingly stunning views of São Paolo, there was talk of work. Designer Carlos Miele chatted with a few businessmen about his plans for brand expansion in Asia, and Pedro Lourenço gave us a preview of his upcoming pre-fall presentation at Milk Studios, while Alexandre Birman shared the news that he’s now part of Bergdorf Goodman’s designer shoe floor. At the top of the Birman’s to-do list: make shoes for the baby girl his wife is expecting. Does that mean he’ll be going into the children’s business? He wouldn’t say, but I bet a lot of moms would die for that. magazine was also a big topic of conversation. Guests were pleasantly surprised when I passed them out as party favors once the night came to a close.

Bound For Brazil: Marina Larroude’s Packing List

-------’s senior fashion editor, Marina Larroude, is finishing packing for her trip home to Brazil next week. Here, she shares her holiday travel essentials.

Unlike most places in the States at this time of year, it’s hot and desertlike in Brazil right now, so I always think about Christmas as more of a summer party. Needless to say, I will be throwing lots of pieces from the Resort collections into my new navy blue Rimowa suitcase for the two-week trip.

When in Brazil, I usually spend three days in São Paulo visiting family and friends. This time around, my dear friend and swimwear designer Amalia Spinardi, from Jo de Mer, is hosting a dinner in my honor Monday night. On the party list: Pedro Lourenço, Carlos Miele, and Alexandre Birman, to name a few. I began the search for the perfect cocktail dress, and after browsing through’s runway pictures with a few co-workers, we decided that a Peter Pilotto Resort dress was the most appropriate option for the event—colorful, edgy, and chic. To complement the look, Eddie Borgo’s spike turquoise necklace and an Edie Parker lucite clutch. (Check back on Style File next week to find out more about the party). For spending the day running around São Paulo, which requires more of a big-city uniform, what better than Equipment silk shirts, skinny jeans, and Ralph Lauren slippers?

Then it’s off to my quiet hometown of Araçatuba, where I’ll be spending Christmas and New Year’s. Time in my parent’s hometown is spent relaxing and enjoying long days by the pool, filled with caipirinhas, Jo de Mer bikinis, Lancaster sunscreen, and Current/Elliott cutoffs. That’s all I’m planning on wearing for the next ten days. Well, almost. On New Year’s Eve, the entire country wears white for the midnight countdown, and for that my Jenni Kayne white ruffle dress is the perfect option.
