André Balazs has made certain guests at the Standard hotels will be able to bare all this summer. Quiksilver bikinis and board shorts will be available for purchase from poolside vending machines in August, so now you really have no reason to stay dry. [WWD]
There’s been a design-team shakedown at Salvatore Ferragamo. Massimiliano Giornetti, the menswear designer, will now be taking on womenswear as well. He will replace Cristina Ortiz, whose designs were a bit too “sexpot,” for Fall 2010. [WWD]
More images from Yohji Yamamoto‘s footwear collaboration with Salvatore Ferragamo landed in our inbox this morning, and while we’re looking forward to seeing how they hold up on the runway tonight—not to mention what Yohji will be showing on top of them—we thought they deserved a little solo time in the spotlight. A far cry from the heel-less, but no less gravity-defying, lace-up sparkle boots at Nina Ricci yesterday, Yamamoto and Ferragamo’s kicks are as easy as can be. There’s a molded, second-skin quality to the leather, which rather begs to be pulled on. Ranging from $470 to $1,050, the shoes are, as Yamamoto intended them to be, also a bit “mannish.” Will you slip these supple suckers on when they’re out in July? Or will you opt for something a bit sexier?
Further proof that Washington now rivals Hollywood in star wattage (first confirmation being the exhaustive dairy of Michelle’s outfits on HuffPo): Brad Pitt descends on the District to meet with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi today to talk housing and hurricanes. Maybe this will be the meeting he shaves his soul patch for? We can only hope. [People]
Nancy may get Brad, but does she have her own real-time GPS tracking system? Introducing the Hillary tracker, an interactive online map courtesy of the State Department that allows Clinton fans to keep tabs on their fave Secretary. [The Atlantic]
And if that wasn’t enough, here’s a handy compilation of White House hunks. Yes, that’s right. Reggie Love is hunky. [HuffPo]
Have you noticed a void in your wardrobe, a dearth of “mannish, unisex, and neutral shoes“? Consider it filled. Salvatore Ferragamo and Yohji Yamamoto have collaborated on just such kicks, which will be unveiled at Yohji’s show on Friday. [WWD]
The people at Pop need a better press secretary. No one’s sure who’s in, who’s out, or what, exactly, constitutes an “editorial board.” WWD clears it up. Kind of.
