Yea, Nay, Or Eh: Super Coordinated


As we mentioned yesterday, Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, and Claudia Schiffer hit Milan’s department store La Rinascente earlier this evening to celebrate the launch of D&G’s new fragrance Anthology. Though they’re not wearing a stitch in the campaign, for this occasion, this trio of über-models dressed themselves in matchy-matchy looks of black jackets, white tees, black pumps, and a dash of distressed denim. Of the three, we’re partial to Eva’s adorable slashed cigarette jeans. (If we had her legs, that’s all we’d wear.) But we kind of love this picture as a whole. The visually calculated supermodel moment has a whiff of their nineties heyday. It might come off as reaching for past glory if they didn’t look so inhumanly fantastic, but the fact remains that they do. What do you think of the super-coordination? Please discuss.

Heat-Seeking in Milan, By Day and Night


In concert with the influx of fashion-loving foreigners, September is Milan’s happening retail season. The biggest store news comes from the new D&G revamp in Corso Venezia 7 (pictured above), and Trussardi 1911′s new “concept” lifestyle store at Piazza della Scala 5, where comfortable chairs and reading material are part of the shopping experience. There’s also MaxMara’s sleek new mega-store at Corso Vittorio Emanuele, which carries all its various lines and some serious pieces for the home. The company teamed up with the Milanese design guru Rossana Orlandi to offer a very original collection that is both retro (there are things by Gio Ponti) as well as items from new up-and-comers like Maarten Baas.

Just down the road is Rinascente which continues to transform under the eye of department store maestro Stefano Radice. The rehauled homewares department in the basement is now called the Design Supermarket. While there, be sure to venture beyond the subterranean to the topmost floor to take in some of the best views in Milan. There you’ll find a terrace bar that looks onto the Gothic spirals of Milan’s Duomo. If you’re there on the evening of September 25, you will find a coterie of bona fide supes. Eva, Naomi, and Claudia will be there to launch D&G’s new fragrance Anthology.

Then, when the shopping day is done, the trendy set can join the spillover in front of the bars Blanco or Straf. And finally, for those who can last late into the notte, join DJ Natasha Slater’s crowd at the appropriately named Punks Wear Prada this Friday, at Tunnel. The party gets going around midnight.

London Fashion Week’s Greatest Hits, and More…


Over the past 25 years, London fashion week has had some standout moments: Alexander McQueen’s “‘bumster’ trousers,” a plus-size Sophie Dahl rocking the runway, and a topless Naomi Campbell wearing a Philip Treacy hat. All these and more are included in this nostalgia-inducing timeline. [Guardian]

She’s already denying this, but Courtney Love apparently went a little ballistic when a man walked in on her while she was in the bathroom at the Standard Hotel. He claims it was an accident. She really doesn’t care. [Page Six]

Ruffian has been tapped to design a line for Anthropologie dubbed “Mise en Scène,” which will be in stores in November. We like the sound of their “hand-seamed hosiery” to satisfy our embellished-tights craving when the temps drop. [WWD]

Keyed In


Hungry Russian models now have a place to go for some Slavic home cooking, just like Babushka used to make: Mari Vanna. The Gramercy Park eatery, which opens officially on Wednesday after a soft launch in June, even looks like Grandma’s place, what with the peeling wallpaper, dusty bookshelves, and shabby-chic chandeliers courtesy of the decorator Vera Raririniva. Extending the metaphor, special friends of the restaurant receive a key that works not only here in New York but also at the restaurant’s St. Petersburg and Moscow outposts. We hear that Dasha Zhukova (wonder if a Pop launch party is in the works?), her billionaire boyfriend Roman Abramovich, and Naomi Campbell’s main squeeze, Vladislav Doronin, all have one. If you’re not a Russian oligarch, you can ring the bell. There’s a late-night menu and takeaway is also available—it comes packed in the string bags that Russians were known to carry in their pockets before they traded up to Chanels and Vuittons.
