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.
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]
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]
Chloë Sevigny headed down to Austin this weekend for the premiere of her new flick, Barry Munday, at South by Southwest, but she hasn’t gone country yet—the actress rocked Proenza Schouler’s leather-accented mesh dress with printed skirt and double-breasted cutaway blazer. Leave it to Chloë to hit several trends of the moment—see-through, DBs, perma-hot Proenza—all at once. We think she looks pretty great doing it. What about you? Would you rock these slightly schoolgirlish separates, or does this look leave her at the back of the class?
Kristen Stewart may look more comfortable in well-worn hoodies and Chuck Taylors, but that doesn’t stop the Twilight mega-star from turning up on red carpets in some very fashion-forward duds. Remember her in look 20 from Proenza Schouler’s Spring ’10 collection at the New Moon premiere in London? Rumor has it Stewart actually selects all her own looks from a catalog supplied by her stylist, which makes this girly Doo.Ri frock—worn to the L.A. premiere of The Runaways—a surprising pick for the tomboyish actress. We think she looks fresh and age-appropriate in the bright hue, sheer detailing, and short hem. We won’t, however, comment on the hair. What do you think? Are you a fan of K-Stew’s trendy red-carpet style or would you prefer to see her go another route?
