Sometimes, trends that make a bright start in New York fade by the time the shows reach Europe, like brash Americans snubbed by their continental cousins. But that’s not the case with the brilliant fluoro tones that lit up Spring ’11 in NYC (at Prabal Gurung, below right, and Proenza Schouler, below center). Vivid, neon colors—most especially hazard orange, often paired with tense aqua blues and shocking pinks—have hit the runways in London (at Jonathan Saunders, above left, and Christopher Kane, below left) and now in Milan at Gucci (above right). Not recommended for the faint of heart.
Dolce e Gabbana, sticking up for the little guys? The designers will now be stocking the work of up-and-coming designers—including Yigal Azrouël, Sophie Théallet, Behnaz Sarafpour, and Fausto Puglisi—at a new shop in Milan. They’re even doing the buying and outreach personally. [WWD]
Proenza Schouler’s Fall ’10 platforms were so great, we almost snatched them right off the runway. We didn’t do it then, but we might try it now: There are a very few runway-only shoes, which never went into production, now at Opening Ceremony. [Fashionologie]
Meet the man behind the gowns: Prabal Gurung takes a moment on his blog to introduce Ari Magallanes, the Ecuadorian dressmaker who helps create his showstopping dresses. [Prabal Gurung]
Meanwhile, Jason Wu shares the tunes that were spinning at his Spring ’11 show. [Jason Wu]
And another cover coup for back-in-the-limelight Kristen McMenamy: The gray-haired vixen will be on the cover of the next i-D, fully frizzed. [Design Scene]
Style.com’s Fashion Feed brings you the best of the news around the Web and on Twitter, and ranks the most-discussed designers, labels, models, and celebrities. In our weekly series, we call out the top five designers of the previous week (with our handy gloss on the hows and whys).
1. Marc Jacobs (pictured; last week: 1)
Not long after Marc Jacobs’ Harper’s Bazaar interview with Calvin Klein hit the Web, his September Interview Q&A—with longtime business partner Robert Duffy—is now online.
2. Alexander Wang (last week: 4)
As fall deliveries continue to hit stores and online retailers, Wang mania continues—especially for accessories, which shoe-bloggers continue to rhapsodize over. Savvy shoppers can find deals, too: Marked-down buckle boots from Wang’s previous season are available at Barneys’ warehouse sale, though not, we presume, for long.
3. Prabal Gurung (last week: N/A)
The Nepal-born designer—and first-time listee—is busily preparing for fashion week, with a little help from Swarovski, which is underwriting his show this season. But that’s not to say it’s all work and no play—he still found time last week to co-host a benefit raising funds for a women’s health center in India.
4. Karl Lagerfeld (last week: N/A)
New York will get a dose of Lagerfeld next month when the Couture Council honors him at their annual luncheon. Ticket sales were kicked off at the Council’s party last week. Meanwhile, Lagerfeld debuted his new Chanel campaign, starring Crystal Renn.
5. Alexander McQueen (last week: N/A)
The last works of the late, great McQueen made their way online last week: a dress McQueen designed for his friend Annabel Neilson, and a gorgeous, hummingbird-covered rug made for The Rug Company.
