Band of Outsiders’ range of polos is called, per usual Sternbergian antics, “This Is Not a Polo Shirt.” Okay. But this is a new e-commerce site where you can buy them and have them shipped right to your door. [Blackbook]
Roger Vivier brand ambassador Inès de la Fressange (pictured) is writing a chic guide to Paris, after years of being hounded by journalists and friends for the best salon/restaurant/shop/anything else in her city. Finally, a Lonely Planet for the Chanel backpacking set! [WWD]
Mommie chic-est—Jourdan Dunn is back on the LFW runways a mere ten weeks after giving birth. [Vogue U.K.]
And today in unnecessary brand extensions: Jason Wu has put his name on a line of GE digital cameras to be sold on HSN. Jason, if you’re looking to fritter away the last of that MObama-accrued capital, this is probably a good way to go. [DVice via Racked]
London might have lured Matthew Williamson and Jonathan Saunders back home (for a season at least), but the Bowery has scored British pop sensation Little Boots. Otherwise known as Victoria Christina Hesketh (no relation to Sophia), Little Boots will play to a sold out crowd on the 16th. If you missed out on tickets, or will be otherwise occupied at the Roger Vivier and Gucci parties that night, not to worry: LB has designed a T-shirt for The Yellow Bird Project, a Canadian charity organization that makes tees with musicians and donates the proceeds to the creative’s charity of choice (in Hesketh’s case, it’s Music Is Power and British Heart Foundation). The YBP has also just released The Indie Rock Coloring Book, with images inspired by and in conjunction with artists such as Devendra Banhart, Rilo Kiley, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and MGMT. Prepare your crayons now. More information here: www.yellowbirdproject.com.
The economy might be dragging its feet, but as we have seen over the past few days, the couturiers—and souliers—are dreaming of walking on sunshine. At Roger Vivier, creative director Bruno Frisoni eschewed all thoughts of doom and gloom when conceiving his “One Is Too” couture collection in favor of excess. (Even the copywriter got in on the act, exalting over a model in which tones of “abandoned blues, shipwrecked pinks and emerald greens applaud in silence those who cast their eyes upon it.”) He played with the idea of plenty (two shoes), piling on the decoration (too too), but also made his models ingeniously multifunctional (two uses). The Dovima style, “which chirps of adventures to come,” for example, is decorated with 24-karat-dipped birds that can also be worn as hairclips. That’s a double shift we can get behind.
