Is Splatter Paint The Tie-Dye Of Menswear?

-------

Despite the rage for beachy tie-dyes that Proenza Schouler and co. inspired in women worldwide, men have been a little more hesitant to pick up the trend. But watching the Dries Van Noten show in Paris yesterday, we wondered if the Belgian bellwether wasn’t offering his own alternative. Van Noten showed ink-spattered tops and bleach-stained jeans that picked up the look of the tie-dye but infused it with a rougher, slightly more masculine edge. (In look, at least: As Tim Blanks reports, the blotches were hand-painted by couturiers in Lake Como.) Is the trend catching? Gaultier, too, showed paint spatter, on pants and knits that called to mind one of the roughest and most masculine of modern painters: Jackson Pollock.

Your PS1, Super-Sized

-------

Pre-collections offer designers the opportunity to experiment and test out new ideas, but they’re also a good time to riff on the best sellers—the Resort collection spends a long time on the sales floor, after all. Celine did just that with a few new versions of its Classic bag, which we checked out earlier this week; now Jack and Lazaro of Proenza Schouler are doing the same with a bigger-is-better twist on the PS1. The new weekender model comes in two sizes, a medium and a large (they’ll retail for $1,150 and $1,350, respectively, when they go on sale in December), that look every bit as cool as their predecessors. Why reinvent the wheel? I smell another success.

The Rx: Take Two Of These And Call Us In The Morning

-------


Given that it’s high season for benefits, just about every night offers an opportunity to bid on designer merch for one or another good cause. Tonight is no different: L’Wren Scott has helped to plan the (don’t ask) New York Dermatology Group’s Rx Haiti benefit. But where L’Wren goes, good designers tend to follow, and there’s plenty of I’d-buy-retail on the block. Accessories are a particular strong suit, with bags from Lanvin (top) and Proenza Schouler (bottom), as well as art by Elizabeth Peyton, Sante D’Orazio, and Jack Pierson. Of course, a few friends in high places haven’t hurt, either. Mick Jagger—don’t call him Mr. Scott—has generously donated a few rock treasures, from a signed copy of the Stones’ Exile on Main Street to a signed, cherry red Gibson baby grand. Tickets for tonight’s event are still available at www.nydgfoundation.org, where you can also bid online for an hour this evening.

PSSunnies, Singaporean Sales, And More…

The PS1 that wasn’t: Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2010 sunglasses include hardware taken from the label’s best-selling PS1 bags. Baby steps to that investment piece! [Refinery29]

The new trademark of American designers? Overseas sales, of course, especially in rapidly growing markets in Asia (like China, Korea, and Singapore) and the Middle East. The world is flat, hadn’t you heard? [WWD]

Gus Van Sant corrals Madonna for Interview, where she discusses her upcoming film, her childhood inspirations, and one very famous ex-husband—the one who just happened to nab an Oscar for Van Sant’s Milk. (On Penn, Madge says: “He’s got a fire under his ass, that’s for sure. A bee in his bonnet.”) [Interview]

In case you missed it (as, we confess, we did) last week: Famed photog Bill Cunningham is finally moving out of his incredible, rent-controlled Carnegie Hall apartment. On his way out, though, he’s narrating a little video about the place. [NYT via Curbed]

Tie-Dyeing: It’s A Good Thing; DVF Flies South; And More…

-------

Do not adjust your set—that really is Jack and Lazaro of Proenza Schouler teaching Martha how to tie-dye on The Martha Stewart Show today. (But if you’d rather leave the DIY to the professionals, you’ll be glad to know that PS is offering a tie-dyed racer-back tank, pictured, for a limited time on its Web site.) [Martha Stewart]

The surest sign that spring is here: The shirts are off outside of Hollister. [Racked]

From their parlor to yours: Parlor showroom—which reps lines like Timo Weiland, Rachel Antonoff, and Samantha Pleet—is taking its show on the road, driving an RV cross-country to sell Fall 2010 directly to consumers. Well, when retail’s down… [Fashionista]

And DVF adds a new continent to her worldwide empire. The designer opened her first South American store in Brasília’s new Iguatemí Mall, and André Leon Talley curated an exhibition of Diane-iana (but of course) for the occasion. [WWD]
