Congrats to Dutch model Doutzen Kroes (pictured), who wed her longtime boyfriend Sunnery James in her hometown of Eastermar, the Netherlands, this weekend. The pregnant bride wore Pronovias, a Spanish label. The Angel and her new husband are honeymooning on Madagascar, so no hope of seeing her at the Victoria’s Secret show this Wednesday. [Page Six]
Peter Copping is on a roll at Nina Ricci: After debuting his new line of Barneys-exclusive dresses, he’s set to launch the brand’s return to advertising with a new campaign (with Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin) and, eventually, bridal and lingerie. [Fashionologie]
Can’t get enough of J.Crew’s Spring 2011 men’s collection? Then check out the behind-the-scenes shots creative director Frank Muytjens snapped over at T. [The Moment]
Moleskine and, uh, Pac-Man: two great tastes that taste great together? [Racked]
And in case you missed it this weekend, Eric Wilson’s assessment of the current State of Love (Courtney, that is) is well worth a read—and, no, not just because we’re mentioned in the opening line. [NYT]
Many is the season in my fashion career that I’ve sat through a round of Fall/Winter shows dutifully jotting down “brocade” as a trend in my trusty Moleskine. And while the looks in question have certainly been chic, aside from an Oscar de la Renta party dress for which I’ve made an exception, the fabric just isn’t something I easily envision in my own closet—until now, that is. For her first full Lerario Beatriz Resort collection, Ana Lerario sourced the magical hybrid of cotton brocade in her native Brazil. “It wasn’t easy to find,” deadpans the soft-spoken designer. Lerario’s breezy, pale lilac-hued version of the traditionally stiff embroidered silk also dovetails neatly with her perennial love of the 1800′s and her signature subtle corset motifs on fitted little jackets. She cuts the sweetness with a dark navy piping, and knocks out any remaining stuffing by pairing, say, a high-waisted cotton brocade skirt with a light-as-air cotton top embellished with razored pleats and copper sequins. Et voilà: A fabric is reborn. For more on the Resort 2010 collections, click here.
What: Earnest Sewn’s new “Recession-Proof” store, opening today, with downtown-chic finds like Dents gloves, Barbour hats, leather-covered Moleskine notebooks, Digby & Iona jewelry, and the label’s own gingham scarves (like the one pictured here, a great buy at $38), also available in black, red, and green—all for less than $50.
Why: Because our favorite denim label likes to share the retail love. (To wit, those Dents gloves usually sell for over $90, but you didn’t hear it from us.)
Where: An Earnest Cut & Sew, 821 Washington Street, (212) 242-3414.
