Givenchy Steps Off The Catwalk, Stella Steps Onto The Court, Designers Dress Up The Garment Center, And More…-------
Don’t look for Givenchy on the couture calendar this July—Riccardo Tisci will show his Couture collection for the house (shaved down to ten looks to accommodate customization) by private appointment. Apparently, the most devoted couture clients, royals that they are, couldn’t attend the shows for security reasons, anyway. Yeah, we know how that story goes. (For good measure, here’s one more glimpse at Spring 2010 couture, left.) [WWD]
Rumor has it that Scott Campbell, tattoo artist to the stars, has designed bags for next week’s Louis Vuitton menswear show. Since “to the stars” includes “to Marc Jacobs,” we’ve heard stranger allegations. [Elle]
We’re still curious to see Venus Williams’ new outfit at Wimbledon (she promises it’ll be divisive), but the tourney’s shaping up to be quite the fashion event: Stella McCartney will dress Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki in her Adidas duds. [Vogue U.K.]
New Yorkers, swing by the Garment District today for a glimpse of designers installing their Ralph Pucci-created mannequins for the Fashion Center Sidewalk Catwalk. Jason Wu, Rebecca Taylor, Betsey Johnson, and Tommy Hilfiger are among the designers who are pitching in. [WWD]
Anna Dello Russo—fashion peacock extraordinaire—collaborated with Yoox on a line of T-shirts of (what else) her own classic outfits. They sold out in less than 2 days. [Thread NY]
David Lynch’s film for Dior, Lady Blue Shanghai, screened at the label’s cruise collection show. If you missed it there and want to see Marion Cotillard fretting (pictured), having a spectral love affair, and reciting a poem, the full 16-minute video is now up at LadyDior.com.
Following the departure of Graeme Fidler and Michael Herz for Bally earlier this year, Aquascutum has tapped English designer Joanna Sykes for its creative director post. Sykes is an alum of Armani, Ferretti, and Matches’ house label. [Vogue U.K.]
March of the mannequins: Industry stalwart Ralph Pucci will create a “catwalk” of his mannequins in Times Square, outfitted by Calvin Klein, DVF, Michael Kors, and more. Great, just what Times Square needs: more people standing stock-still, blocking pedestrian walkways. [WWD]
Lindsay Lohan is expanding her 6126 collection into handbags, apparently La Lohan’s favorite accessory. Style groups include Starlette, Glam A-Go-Go, and Kitten with a Whip. PR executives of the world: Isn’t there one of you out there who can convince her that these names are just not a good idea? [WWD]
And now we know: The tux R&B singer Janelle Monáe often sports is a tribute both to Marlene Dietrich and to her mother (a janitor) and her father (who drove a garbage truck). “It pays homage to how they put on a uniform every day and turned something into nothing.” [NY Mag]
