New mom Miranda Kerr proved she is ready for sailing and suit season when she showed off her rocking body in a Jets swimsuit on the David Jones runway this morning. She didn’t wait to get rid of any baby weight, that’s for sure. [Racked]
After testing the waters with a few men’s pieces for his H&M collaboration, Matthew Williamson is diving head-on into the men’s market with a small line due out this February. Looking at the first pieces, we think Williamson’s ladies will find plenty to poach here, too. [WWD]
Score one for the little guy: Hussein Chalayan has bought back Puma AG’s stake in his namesake company. (He’ll remain creative director of Puma.) Fashion’s high priest of avant freed of corporate control? Get ready for avant to get even, uh, avant-ier. [WWD]
The couple that works together, stays together. The first issue of the Viennese 25 magazine edited by Anja Rubik and her boyfriend, fellow model Sasha Knezevic, is out this February. We can’t imagine how Anja balances modeling, editing, and designing her own accessories line in her native Poland, but we imagine all the yoga keeps her pretty centered. [Fashionologie]
And speaking of model multi-hyphenates, Daisy Lowe has been tapped by Swarovski to design a capsule line of jewelry inspired by the stars. That’s the astronomical stars, mind you, not stepmom Gwen Stefani. [Grazia]
It was inevitable, but we denied it in our souls. There will be fewer fashion week parties this year, starting with no fêtes for Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein, and Marc Jacobs (seen here at last season’s in less recession-y days). Big sniff.
After venturing into footwear with Puma this fall, Alexander McQueen is launching a new collaborative effort with the label, a sporty clothing line to be unveiled in Milan this Tuesday. Guess the shoe fit.

The Rubells are a very conceptual family. Don and Mera Rubell, who have been married for nearly half a century and have been collecting art for just as long, have established one of the most important galleries in America, and certainly the best in Miami. This morning their daughter Jennifer hosted a public breakfast to celebrate the family’s recent collaboration with Puma on 30 Americans, a group show of 31 African-American artists. (To celebrate the seminal show, Puma created a limited-edition bag with goodies designed and created by the artists.) And for a conceptual family like this one, that meant a pile of bananas (that’s them pictured above), a table full of various cereals, 16 coolers of milk (two percent, soy, and skim), and two dozen coffeemakers positioned on a back table. (It was a step up from last year’s table of hard-boiled eggs.) Between peels, the Rubells discussed the show’s importance. “If you would have told me one year ago that we would be looking forward to a black president, I would have called you a liar,” Mera Rubell said. “I still can’t believe it.” They also explained how tardiness made for this show’s perfect timing. “For the catalog we wanted to talk to the artists in the show, but the writers we commissioned were late. So we had to push the show back a year,” Don Rubell explained. “So remember that the next time your editor yells at you for being late. Sometimes, like this, disasters become miracles.”
