The jury’s out on socks with cutout shoes. They’ve become a mainstay of the runways—Prada and Marni both showed them for Fall—and a favorite of the street-style photogs like our own Tommy Ton. Dissenters, on the other hand, say they’re too editorial for everyday wear. (Try the look at the office and be prepared to explain yourself.) But Bruno Frisoni’s having his cake and eating it, too. The covetable platform pumps he created for Fall with attached socks, one of Candy Pratts Price’s picks of the season, also come in a more commercial, sockless option. One way or the other, you’re covered—or uncovered, as the case may be.

Hermès and luxury yacht-maker (is there any other kind?) Wally have dissolved their partnership, so no more Hermès yachts. To the two people on earth this actually affects, our condolences. [WWD]
Items from Christian Lacroix’s last collection for Jean Patou (Spring 1987) went on the auction block in Paris and raised a total of about $226,000, including more than $1,000 for a “slave bracelet.” [WWD]
Fresh off of Alice, Tim Burton is already planning on remaking another Disney classic, Sleeping Beauty. His top choice for Maleficient, the poisonous witch: Angelina Jolie. Don’t read anything into that. [Racked]
Prada’s latest sunglasses campaign goes live on the label’s Web site tomorrow, featuring beachy images shot by Steven Klein, music by Frederic Sanchez, and Prada girl-of-the-moment Rasa Zukauskaite (pictured in Prada’s shades). If you can’t make it to Biarritz, you can at least make it to Prada.com, right? [Fashionista]
And Sir Hardy Amies, the British tailor whose name is all but synonymous with bespoke suiting, is making a triumphant return to…bespoke suiting. The homecoming follows his company’s financial collapse in 2008. [Vogue U.K.]
Fall 2010: brought to you by the Global Association of Hosiery Manufacturers? Fall is always when the best of knitwear hits the runway, but this season, luxe socks are getting their turn at some of the most directional shows. At Rag & Bone (left), David Neville and Marcus Wainwright kitted their mountaineers in thick, multicolored knee socks peeking out of boots. Miuccia Prada chose dramatic cabled versions, paired for maximum effect with patent pumps (center). And at Christian Dior (right), John Galliano loved the frill of the chase, giving thigh-skimming stockings to a few of his lucky equestriennes. Insert your own “sock it to us” quip here.
First blanket capes, then all those furs and shearlings, and now the ever multiplying boot-cut trousers on the runways—I smell a certain ritzy-boho something in the air. (It’s not, thank God, patchouli.) This fall, it’s free to be you and me, a little bit gypsy, a little bit hippie. It’s one reason why I’ve been thinking about the combination turban-hats that Albertus Swanepoel designed for Timo Weiland in New York a few weeks back. The CFDA-nominated milliner created the jewel-toned silk toppers for Weiland and co-designer Alan Eckstein’s Fall 2010 show, where they picked up the young-eccentric vibe of the clothes. They remind me of the ones Prada pioneered way back (in fashion eras, at least) in Spring ’07. If you missed those the first time around, Swanepoel’s will be available exclusively at New York’s Pas de Deux. Cool, man.
