From Beach To Street, Swimsuits Make the Ready-to-Wear Crossover

-------

Now TrendingThe lines between swim and ready-to-wear are blurrier than ever these days. This season, we’ve witnessed tastemakers replacing still-happening crop tops with functional yet stylish suits meant to be worn at the beach and off of it. Swapping out your underwear for your bikini isn’t necessarily new—particularly if you’ve ever been a few days behind on laundry—but designers are now emphasizing underpinnings as a key part of the total look. Resort found the likes of Rosetta Getty and Fendi’s Karl Lagerfeld layering triangle tops under silk shirtdresses and mesh vests, while high-waisted briefs turned up at Louis Vuitton, Mary Katrantzou, and Agnona. Sporty bandeaus, meanwhile, proved to be popular among the likes of Alexander Wang, Prabal Gurung, and Preen.

Here, a slideshow of swimsuits making the ready-to-wear crossover.

Meet Me—And The Best Of Balenciaga—In San Francisco

-------

Cameron Silver, owner of L.A.’s vintage couture mecca Decades, knows his way around an original Balenciaga. He had plenty to ogle at the opening of Balenciaga and Spain at San Francisco’s de Young Museum this week. Silver headed to the City by the Bay for the opening fête; read on for his report on the star-studded evening.


Although my flight to San Francisco was delayed three hours due to the rain (not from Spain!), I managed to throw on my tux in the car and make it to the de Young Museum in time for the exhilarating opening of Balenciaga and Spain, curated by Hamish Bowles. The show features a breathtaking collection of the master’s work, including dresses worn by Ava Gardner and Mona Bismarck.

The dress code of the evening, no surprise, skewed toward Balenciaga, both vintage and from the current Ghesquière era. Google’s Marissa Meyer was in a vintage sea foam Balenciaga gown from Decades. Maria Bello looked fabulous in original Cristobal, too, and Suzy Dominik scored an even bigger coup—a vintage gown that was also featured in the show. (Sloan Barnett wore Lacroix but asked the curator the question everyone was thinking: “You have so many gowns—can’t I have one?”) On the contemporary end, Miranda Kerr (left, with husband Orlando Bloom in tow), Katie Schwab, and Lawren Howell all chose Ghesquière designs; Angelique Griepp and Katie Traina scored Edition pieces.

If the clothes were terrific, the guest list was nothing to scoff at, either. Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy, Mia Wasikowska (in Balenciaga with an Edition necklace), Balthazar and Rosetta Getty, Maggie Rizer, and Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom all were there, and even Gwyneth Paltrow made a brief appearance. Hubert de Givenchy wasn’t able to attend, alas, but sent a message recalling advice given to him by Balenciaga himself: “Success is not prestige—success is temporary. Prestige remains.” The show was sewn proof.

MaxMara Takes L.A., By Day And By Night

-------

MaxMara had its eye on the red carpet for last night’s Crystal Lucy Awards, where the brand presented Zoe Saldana with its Face of the Future Award, but the festivities began long before the sun set: On Tuesday afternoon, the label treated a few key L.A. ladies to a chic lunch benefiting the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Katherine Ross, gallerist Karyn Lovegrove, and MaxMara’s Nicola Gerber Maramotti hosted guests like Rachel Griffiths, Lisa Love, and Shiva Rose (all in MaxMara or Sportmax, of course) to an outdoor feast of striped bass and panna cotta at Lovegrove’s stunning Hancock Park estate; shut your eyes and you could believe you were in the Italian countryside. At least one guest soon would be—”We’re getting ready to go to Tuscany in two weeks, and hopefully I’ll be in Paris for couture,” reported Rosetta Getty (pictured, left, with Griffiths)—but when you call L.A. home, you don’t need to go far for fun in the sun. “After living here for four and a half years, I’m really enjoying all that Los Angeles has to offer,” said Ross, whose husband, Michael Govan, is LACMA’s popular director.

Liseanne Frankfurt Rings In Anniversary With Chocolaty Treats

-------

West Coast jeweler Liseanne Frankfurt celebrated the one-year anniversary of LFrank, her namesake boutique in Venice, California, this past weekend with the likes of Elisabeth Shue, Maria Bello, and Rosetta Getty. Each of the aforementioned experienced similar oh-my-God reactions to the culinary treats (chocolate-dipped dried figs and dark chocolate with cherries, marcona almonds, and sea salt), whipped up by the designer and part-time domestic goddess. In between encouraging retail therapy among guests by showing off her own whopping 214-carat ruby cabochon ring with colored diamonds and an oversize pair of 18-karat gold snowflake earrings, Frankfurt mused on the year that was. “Everyday for the past year, I watched a man walk his dog past the store and then last week he came in with a woman and bought an engagement ring,” she explained. “I’m looking forward to more experiences like that.”
