The fellas over at Gilt Man chat with former Cloak designer Alexandre Plokhov about his namesake collection, prepped to launch in Paris this week. Plokhov hinted that the collection is “the spiritual progeny of Cloak, with Italian craftsmanship and a slightly more open worldview.” Sign us up. [Gilt Man]
Bonjour, Christian! After leaving his namesake label, Christian Lacroix is teaming up with Spanish brand Desigual on a 30-piece capsule collection. Desigual by Monsieur Lacroix will be ready for fall, with a larger collection planned for summer 2012. [WWD]
As if his female fans weren’t already legion, tennis pro Rafael Nadal stripped down—and gamely flexed—for his role in the newest Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans ads. Love all. [WWD]
Tennis lovers suffering from Nadal withdrawal can always get their fix at a Lacoste store (the unruly-haired one may not actually be there, but the place just reeks of clay courts and match points), and shopping there this month comes with a Good Samaritan bonus. At a party at the Fifth Avenue boutique last night hosted by Vogue, Lacoste showed off its PINK line, available now in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Polos, belts, and bags are priced for the times (read: $100 and under), and since 10 percent of the proceeds benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, these purchases can probably by counted as charitable write-offs come tax time (NB: no accountants were consulted in writing this blog post). Hey, it’s worth a (drop) shot. Zing!
With a little help from Nike, do-ragged tennis stud Rafael Nadal will debut a more “mature” court wardrobe at the U.S. Open. Mesh makes the man, as they say.
Marc Jacobs has a tattoo that reads “bros before hos.” Yeah, we kinda already figured that’s how he swung.
