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]

Edun has tapped longtime LVMH textile designer Sharon Wauchob as its new creative director. Her first collection will be for Spring 2011. [WWD]

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.”

Opening Ceremony Fights Cavities, Simon Takes A Stand, And More…

A blast from the past: Women Model Management is now representing nineties-era superstar Jenny Shimizu. [Hint Mag]

A blast from the future: More details emerge on NYC’s second Opening Ceremony, opening soon in (where else?) the Ace Hotel. The new store, with its hotel theme, will stock travelers’ essentials (esoteric toothpastes, condoms) and designer souvenirs (an Alex Wang tote bag, a Proenza Schouler dopp kit), and house a McSweeney’s bookshop. [WWD]

Barneys creative director Simon Doonan takes to his usual pulpit—i.e., the New York Observer—to give his side of “Tinselgate,” the hubbub surrounding his White House Christmas decor. The takeaway: Sniping conservative bloggers who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw lumps of coal. [NYO]

Another reason to envy Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge: The kid’s got a new collaboration with Gryphon—and she’s all of 18. As if her personal footwear archive wasn’t enviable enough. [Fashionista]

And speaking of collaborations, chart-toppers Kings of Leon debut their collaborative capsule collection of jeans and jackets with Surface To Air this month. Want to look like a Kentucky-fried Southern rocker? Hie thee to, uh, London. [Telegraph]

ConfettiSystem’s Paper Pushers

-------

Need help making your holiday bright? If tinsel seems a little been-there-done-that, head over to Urban Outfitters (or go online) to check out the new garlands, sparkly crowns, and disco-ball-esque piñatas from ConfettiSystem‘s limited-edition PartyParty line. Look familiar? Might be because ConfettiSystem, the brainchild of Julie Ho and Nicholas Andersen, has been glamming up some pretty big names over the past year. Their garlands appeared on the runway at United Bamboo (and later co-starred in the label’s ad campaign with Terence Koh), were exhibited at the Arnhem Mode Biënnale and in the windows of Opening Ceremony, and have gotten picked up by Bergdorf Goodman, which now sells the company’s homemade decorations. The under-4 set can learn to make their own when Ho and Andersen lead a workshop at Partners & Spade’s Avant Garde Preschool this weekend, but the rest of us will have to head for Urban—and fast. An hour into the launch party last night at the 14th Street store, all of the Fiesta garlands had been snapped up.
