You read it right. The whole world may be going nuts for twitpics, but this fashion week, we opted for Whitpics, courtesy of Trovata designer John Whitledge. Since he took a season off from showing his collection, Whitledge had a little free time to take in the sights of New York fashion week. We sent him out, camera in hand; below is his photo diary of a week at the shows, the scenes, the parties, and the strip clubs (!) of NYFW, with a few words from the man himself on what he saw there.

“Erin Wasson was channeling a little Slash before her show.” Erin Wasson x RVCA show, ABC Carpet & Home.

“General Idea designer Bumsuk Choi faces the storm outside his showroom.” Soho.

“Kirsten Dunst was embracing a real fashion moment.” Patrik Ervell presentation, Milk Studios.

Exclusive: We Preview The Opening Ceremony X Levi’s Collab


We’re not sure if it’s alchemy or a deal with the devil, but just about everything Opening Ceremony touches turns to gold. In the store’s new collaboration with Levi’s, however, most everything has turned to corduroy. When the results look good, we’re not about to complain. Levi’s gave a sneak preview of a few pieces from the mostly cord new collection, which hits select Levi’s and Opening Ceremony shops—including the latter’s forthcoming Ace Hotel location—later this month. The line, comprised of shirts, jackets, cutoffs, and pants, doesn’t mess with the simplicity that makes Levi’s great; the Opening Ceremony team merely tweaked the classics with pop colors (spring pastels like pink, lavender, and dusty blue, as well as our favorite, a mustardy shade called curry) and a few select nips and tucks. (The denim jacket [below] like one that you’d scour the racks to find at your local vintage shop, is lovingly broken in, and shrunken to bolero-ish proportions.) Look for them soon at a store—and, knowing their provenance, an after-hours party, under-the-radar-bar, or backstage lounge—near you.
OC x Levi’s cord shirt, $128; denim trucker jacket, $178; and 505 cutoff shorts, $148; available at select Opening Ceremony stores (beginning February 9), Levi’s Union Square San Francisco flagship and worldwide boutique stores (beginning February 19), and (beginning February 15).

The Row Hits The Runway, A New Face At Edun, And More…


Olsen worshippers, start praying to the ticket gods: Ashley (pictured in Erdem from Sunday’s Golden Globes awards ceremony) has announced that they’ll be hosting the first show for The Row this February in New York. We’re guessing these gods in particular appreciate sacrificial offerings of leather leggings and enormous Givenchy bags. [Vogue U.K.]

Prada’s video for its Spring men’s collection, which we previewed last week, is now up at the brand’s Web site. Consider it today’s required viewing.

Would you wear the floral-print sweatsuits from Opening Ceremony’s latest collaboration with NYC streetwear darlings Pegleg? Office opinion is divided here; Racked, on the other hand, feels pretty certain. [Racked]

2020: A Fashion Odyssey, Burberry To Keep It In the Family? And More…


The rumor mill was working overtime this weekend, buzzing with speculation that gallerist Jeffrey Deitch is set to be tapped as the new director of L.A.’s Museum of Contemporary Art. The official word comes through today. [LAT]

English model Sophie Dahl married her jazz musician boyfriend Jamie Cullum in the U.K. this weekend. In place of our usual quip, we’ll just leave you with a smitten awwww. [Vogue U.K.]

Word on the street is that Emma Watson’s little bro, Alex—last seen co-starring with his sister in Burberry’s Spring campaign—will hit the runway for the label in London later this month. Is some Hogwartian spell behind this? (Well, the family good looks don’t hurt, either…) [Fashionista]

NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg is gathering the troops at Macy’s Herald Square tonight to discuss his office’s new, yearlong fashion retail initiative, Fashion NYC 2020. The issues on the table include job creation for the next decade and how to amp up NYC’s presence in the increasingly international world of fashion. Our suggestion: If the inaugural Fashion’s Night Out is any indication, getting the Olsen twins to bartend seems to get people interested. [WWD]

Opening Ceremony and Levi’s have confirmed they’re working on a collaboration (pictured)—first hinted at on Twitter last week—to hit stores next month. The collection will focus on corduroy and launch at OC stores in NYC, L.A., and Tokyo during New York fashion week. [WWD]

Blasblog: 2010′s Calendar Girls, Er, Guys


A straight guy in fashion is rare thing indeed, but casting director and blogger Douglas Perrett managed to round up 13 of them—just enough, naturally, for a pinup calendar of months (plus one for the cover). Under his Confessions of a Casting Director umbrella, he and collaborator Kathy Lo shot the hetero fashion photographers for “Straight Shooter,” a 2010 “malendar” available at Opening Ceremony in NYC and L.A. (You can also order it on the COACD Web site.) “Being a hot photographer is an insider prerequisite, like dating models, living on airplanes, or hanging out with rappers,” Perrett explains. The guys—recognizable names all, including Dan Martensen, Kai Regan, Sebastian Kim, and Kenneth Cappello—were just as much photographers in front of the camera as behind it: Mr. April (Regan) called his own shots and demanded to be his own art director. But Mr. February (Chris Shonting, pictured) brought a model’s confidence, too. “He said, ‘I guarantee my pic is better than all the Star Wars, all 9 Terminators, Battle Dome, a couple Rambos, and Missing in Action 1-3,’ ” reports Perrett. “I don’t know what that means, but it’s very Straight Shooter.”
