Word broke this morning that nightlife king Ian Schrager, the mind behind Studio 54, will partner with Rizzoli to share tales of the iconic club with a new coffee-table book, due out next year. As Schrager so pithily put it, “If the hunter does not tell the story, the lion will.” We can only hope that said hunter plans to air some juicy tales about Bianca and Mick.
Thank you, David Bailey, for offering an affordable option for the skint art lover. “Not everyone can afford a print, so this is a nice way of making my work available for everyone,” the famed photographer told Style.com. “What’s the difference between putting it on a canvas and putting it on a T-shirt that everyone can afford? I think it’s quite nice that everyone can have a T-shirt with an image that has some history behind it.”
Bailey is referring to his debut collection of six tees, which launches today exclusively at Selfridges. The tops are printed with some of his most iconic portraits, including those of Michael Caine, Mick Jagger, Boy George, and Grace Jones. Bailey collaborated with the edgy East London creative group The Bleach Room to update the images with a cool collage effect.
The collection is a clever way to reach art collectors and distant admirers alike, especially as his new exhibition, Bailey’s Stardust, is set to open at the National Portrait Gallery next week. At £70 a pop, this is a prime chance to grab an authentic Bailey—while the getting’s good.
Writer and Style Map contributor Sven Schumann founded online magazine The Talks in 2011, launching the site with nine interviews, which included subjects such as Valentino, Mick Jagger, and Patti Smith. In the two years since, Schumann hasn’t stopped talking, racking up Q&As with cultural titans such as Yohji Yamamoto, Woody Allen, Helen Mirren, and Salman Rushdie.
This morning, the site fetes its one hundredth chat, with inimitable Brit Sir Paul Smith. Since opening his first menswear shop, in 1970, Smith has built an empire of more than two hundred shops on his cheeky interpretations of Savile Row cuts—all while maintaining an almost infamous reputation as one of fashion’s “nice guys.”
So why choose Smith for this milestone moment? On top of his fabled status as a designer, “Paul’s story is ultimately that nice guys do sometimes finish first,” Schumann tells Style.com. “And I always love talking to older people, who have lived life and can reflect and share their wisdom.”
In his Talks interview, Smith chats about the livestock that’s passed through the Paul Smith reception, unusual fan mail, and the soundtrack to his hangovers. Catch the full interview on The Talks’ Web site.
Only for Hedi Slimane is it par for the course to dress a Rolling Stone. The designer—who opened the doors to Saint Laurent’s swanky new Avenue Montaigne flagship today—has created Keith Richards’ onstage duds for the Stones’ 50 Years and Counting tour. Considering the designer’s musical ties (most recently, he created Daft Punk’s helmeted Coachella costumes, his pals include Sky Ferreira and Alison Mosshart, and, of course, his latest ad campaigns feature the likes of Beck, Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson), and the fact that he dressed the Stones while at Dior Homme, Slimane was, perhaps, the obvious choice for Richards (front man Mick Jagger, however, turned to girlfriend L’Wren Scott for his looks). The rocker’s ensemble will consist of silk scarves, T-shirts, a vest, and a café racer jacket. The latter—aptly named the Keith jacket—will be available for a mere $4,850 as part of the forthcoming Saint Laurent Stage Wear by Hedi Slimane collection, which will hit stores in June. Not surprisingly, Saint Laurent reports that Slimane has more sartorial stage projects in the pipeline.
The results are in. Today, The Hollywood Reporter released its third annual list of Hollywood’s 25 Most Powerful Stylists. The winners include big names we’ve been hearing a lot about of late—Kate Young, who’s been whipping up a buzz with her new Target collection (and who styles Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, and Natalie Portman), came in at number four. Elizabeth Stewart, who chronicled her experience styling Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Chastain, Julia Roberts, and Cody Horn for the Golden Globes for Style.com, came in at number five. And Rachel Zoe, who styled Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence in their much-talked-about Oscar gowns, slid in at number three. Petra Flannery, who styles Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, and Megan Fox, was this year’s runner-up. And the big winner is (drumroll, please) Leslie Fremar, who styles discerning stars like Julianne Moore, Charlize Theron, and Jennifer Connelly. A surprise on the list was designer (and Mick Jagger’s girlfriend) L’Wren Scott, who came in at number sixteen for dressing Nicole Kidman.
