Sienna And Mischa Brave The Crowds For Matthew Williamson


Hysteria is a common feature at the H&M designer collaboration launches—remember the catfights for the Stella McCartney range? But yesterday’s crowds for Matthew Williamson in London marked a new low, or high, depending on the perspective. The mob was particularly single-minded, grabbing at things indeterminately as they turned the place into a retail mosh pit. What was it for? To eBay later and make a profit? “Forget that. I am going to wear it all,” said customer Jenny Atkinson. “I’ve come all the way from Newcastle for this, and I am getting what I can for me, me mum, and sisters.” That Williamson’s best friend, Sienna “I’m so happy to be here supporting Matthew” Miller, Pixie Geldof, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley were in the crowd didn’t seem to matter to the thousands of fans who had stood in a line that wrapped around Regent Street and snaked four blocks down Oxford Street. “Sorry, I am still in shock at how long the queues were—Sienna and I drove by in a taxi and we just couldn’t believe that all of that was for the collection. It’s mind-blowing,” said the designer. Mischa Barton, wearing his skirt and vest ensemble on her newly coltish figure, was inclined to agree. “I am so glad I have these pieces,” she said. “A couple of people have made offers on them so far, but they’re staying on my back.”

Luella Bartley’s Primal Scream Soundtrack


A Luella Bartley show is always a bit of a music scene, and this season was no exception. At her show on Monday morning, the tapped-in designer—who took home the British Fashion Awards’ Designer of the Year trophy in 2008—had Kanye West and Bob Geldof in the audience, Lissy Trullie and Pixie Geldof on the runway, and Primal Scream main man Bobby Gillespie behind the decks. Gillespie has been doing the Luella music for a few seasons now, and after her catwalk had closed up shop, Bartley explained their intense collaborative process. “Basically, I go round to his house and we hang out and listen to records,” the designer said, as she bounced one of her sons in her arms. “It’s pretty complicated.” Perhaps she’ll be giving Gillespie his own music column in the forthcoming Luella magazine? “There is no magazine,” Bartley said, with a roll of her eyes. “I’m really not sure how that rumor got started.” Some rumors just are too good to be true, apparently, but Bartley was serious about quashing this one. “I think,” she said, as son number two did a zigzag around her, “that I’ve got plenty on my plate as it is.”

PYTs Kick Off LFW


London has been in an uncharacteristic slumber for the past few months, and all that pent up demand for action and partying exploded at the Lacoste VIP Trunk show at Claridge’s Saturday afternoon. An A-list of new generation stars—Daisy Lowe, Amber Le Bon (daughter of Duran Duran’s Simon), Pixie Geldof, Olga Kurylenko, and Rosamund Pike—clinked champagne glasses while bedraggled fashion journos from New York checked into the hotel for the kick-off to London Fashion Week. So what is everyone looking forward to this week? Model and budding designer Ben Grimes, Richard Nicoll’s muse, had an answer: “Definitely Julien Macdonald. There are so many exciting things going on in his company, and everybody is dying to see how it will all translate. With what is going on in the economy, he just represents hope.” Cheers.

Pixie, Lydia, and Daisy: Not Just Campaign Pals


Pringle of Scotland (founded in 1815!) has been massaging its reputation as a stodgy heritage brand for a few years now. Its new Spring ad campaign starring Pixie Geldof, Lydia Hearst, and Daisy Lowe (at left) is another step in the direction of It-ness and hot-ness. “We wanted it to feel young, fresh, and very British,” says creative director Clare Waight Keller of the black-and-white Steven Meisel images. “What I like is that there is a reality behind it. These girls are friends and were not just pulled together for an ad campaign.” (Hearst is American. Not that we’re splitting campaign hairs.) Now that the cockles of your heart are warmed, you can do some work on the rest of your body by buying some cashmere. Did we mention they’ve been making it since 1815?
