Reunited And It Feels So Good

-------

Kate Moss and Johnny Depp

It looks like the runway isn’t the only place seeing a nineties revival. Word on the street is that the decade’s most beautiful couple, Johnny Depp and Kate Moss, are reuniting—on screen, that is. The pair, who dated from 1994 to 1997, are rumored to be starring in Sir Paul McCartney’s new music video, “Queenie Eye,” which, sources say, will also feature Meryl Streep and Gary Barlow. No word yet on what the cast will be wearing, but we have our money on Stella.

The London Designer Who Has Kate Middleton Hooked

-------

Katherine Hooker and the Duchess of Cambridge share more than a first name; the stylish Londoners have mastered the distinction between conservative and commonplace—expert tailoring. Though the designer’s following truly exploded after Kate Middleton landed on best-dressed lists wearing the designer’s widely popular Buxton and Contrast coats, to her credit, the U.K.-based design veteran had cultivated quite a respectable clientele prior to that (aside from Middleton, she counts Yoko Ono, Meryl Streep, and Zoe Saldana as A-list fans). Luckily for stateside coveteurs of Hooker’s line, she’s brought her New York pop-up shop back to Soho for its third season (it’s her only bricks-and-mortar presence outside of London), where they can buy pieces from her ready-to-wear line (Fall ’12 and Spring ’13) or make use of her made-to-order services.

“[Kate] is an absolutely lovely person, and she’s got great style,” Hooker tells Style.com of her royal fan. “She’s had a very positive impact and is a fantastic person to have on all sides affecting [our growth].” Growth, indeed. Over a decade ago, Hooker traveled to India in hopes of replicating a beloved vintage jacket; 20 attempts and six silhouettes later, she returned to England with a newfound fashion addiction. Nowadays, her offerings include menswear, waistcoats, and accessories—particularly, a hot-off-the-press Harvey messenger bag. Though Ms. Middleton hasn’t placed her requests for next season, we can already see her in numbers like the Cain blazer and matching pencil skirt. We’d suggest you place your order now. The designer is set to expand her U.S. presence in the near future, starting with a New York showroom. Here, a first look at her Spring ’13 collection.

The Katherine Hooker pop-up shop, open through October 14, is located at 436 Broadway, NYC.

Christian Louboutin’s Sunset Billboard, Moschino’s Cheap And Chic To Show In London, Meryl Over The Years, And More…

Neiman Marcus and street artist Galo Make Canote have teamed up to create a giant billboard as a tribute to Christian Louboutin’s 20th anniversary. The red-soled heel mural is now on view on Sunset Boulevard. [Racked]

Moschino has announced it will show its Cheap And Chic label for the first time at London fashion week. Moschino’s main line, however, will continue to show in Milan. [Vogue U.K.]

Katie Holmes’ third campaign for H.Stern is out and she’s looking smoldering. The actress stripped down for the jewelry ads, so the images are mostly just sun-kissed skin and sparkling jewels. [Telegraph]

In celebration of Meryl Streep’s latest movie, The Iron Lady, photographer Brigitte Lacombe has released a series of behind-the-scenes images she’s taken of Streep during their 31-year friendship. Lacombe sat down with Nowness to talk about her friendship with one of Hollywood’s leading ladies. [Nowness]

Dispatch From Berlin

-------


In between the men’s shows and Couture (kicking off today), you could be forgiven for bypassing Bebelplatz. But Berlin fashion week, which ended yesterday, sent out several polished collections last week, and celebs like Tilda Swinton and Chloë Sevigny found time to touch down in the front rows.

For trend trackers, the seventies mood that prevailed for Spring may not be going anywhere soon: Rena Lange, Laurèl (above, right), Allude, and Schumacher worked a Me Decade vibe—think a long-locked and fresh-faced Meryl Streep as muse. For something a little more structured, Hugo by Hugo Boss turned out sleek, crisp daywear and cocktail looks in a palette of black, red, and white. (The elegant show at the Neue Nationalgalerie attracted the aforementioned celebs.) For Berlin’s rowdy nightlife scene, Kaviar Gauche’s PVC tees, paired with cream-colored silk trousers, could be a good bet; and Vladimir Karaleev’s sculptural wool pieces (above, left), inspired by repeated listenings to Nirvana’s Unplugged, have a grunge sensibility that feels as fresh now as it did the first time around.

Leyla Piedayesh’s sophisticated and sexy Lala Berlin collection (above) continues to be a Berlin highlight. Inspired by children’s arts and crafts, dresses, trousers, and full, boxy suits came printed in emerald, blue, and acid lemon, a pattern like marbled paper. The shimmery details on a tiny, slinky dress looked like glitter or sprinkles, but this was a grown-up collection.
