Orla Kiely Gets Techy for Target

-------

Tennessee Thomas, Orla Kiely, and Alexa Chung

Not even a broken foot could keep Orla Kiely from the launch party for her new collection of Belkin tech cases for Target yesterday evening. The Irish-born, London-based designer had a little mishap during a recent trip to San Francisco, but she put her best foot forward—in a pair of sensible Marni sandals—and welcomed guests to her Soho store to celebrate. The iPhone and iPad cases, emblazoned with some of Kiely’s signature mid-century-inspired graphics—often florals and prints—were strewn about tables of turf. After all, Kiely loves a midsummer garden party, telling Style.com that they make, “everyone happier.” Continue Reading “Orla Kiely Gets Techy for Target” »

Wren, A Songbird! Joanna Newsom Lends A String

-------



The fans of Melissa Coker’s L.A.-based collection Wren aren’t limited to the West Coast, but when you’ve got California scenery like she does to draw on, it’d be a crime not to use it. So for her Fall ’13 video, she packed up collaborators Sarah Sophie Flicker and Maxmilla Lukacs and headed to Malibu. “I love the contrast of the whimsy of the clothes with the ethereal setting of the mountains and outdoors,” Coker said. Whimsy is just the right word for the video’s star, the adored singer/songwriter and harpist Joanna Newsom. Newsom, harp in tow, performed a cover of Sandy Denny’s folksy, 1971 sea shanty “The North Star Grassman and the Ravens.” “Aesthetically, her songs are really inspiring to me—they’re really bold strokes that feel sort of theatrical and they’re interested in story,” Newsom said of Denny’s melancholy track and creative collaboration it inspired. “The fashion and design that I’m interested in also has to do with story, very strong statements that have some sort of narrative to them, that they aren’t just interested in the now.” Coker and co. invited Style.com to take a look at the shoot in progress; the video debuts early next year.

Tom Brady: The Feet Of Ugg, And More of Today’s Top Stories

-------

We’ve all seen him wear them, and now he’s celebrating them. Tom Brady (pictured) flew in from Boston this week to fête the opening of the first Ugg for Men store, where the label showed off the latest ad campaign images featuring the sports star. Clad in his own Ugg shoes, the New England Patriots quarterback and hubby of Gisele said, “To see what they are rolling out now, with the winter boots and the rocker boots, it’s pretty amazing.” [WWD]

Nike is playing up its feminine side these days. The sportswear label enlisted the likes of Mary Charteris, Sarah Sophie Flicker, and Natalie Joos to star in its new ad campaign, Play, and caught them on film talking about what their favorite sport means to them. [Vogue U.K.]

Take a lesson from Charlize Theron—do not auction yourself as a dinner date for charity. The Snow White and the Huntsman actress divulged to Conan O’Brien that “it’s like the worst idea ever,” recalling the time she ended up on a date with a “strange” man. It’s safe to say the actress will stick to donating money from now on. [Page Six]

Fresh off his CFDA win, Billy Reid is taking no time off to relax. With a menswear business worth $20 million in sales this year, the Alabama native is riding a retail expansion wave. Having just opened his seventh store last week, a 2,500-square-foot space in the Provisions District of Atlanta, Reid has announced he already has plans for his eighth outpost, in Austin, Texas.

Tavi Time

-------

“I was a choir kid for a long time; it’s a nice thing to know how to do,” Tavi Gevinson revealed to Style.com of her vocal talents, while on the Los Angeles set of Wren’s Fall ’12 video shoot. Directed by Sarah Sophie Flicker and Maximilla Lukacs, the film (featuring Wren’s footwear collaboration with Minnetonka) quickly became a reflection of Tavi’s own style evolution. “We went into the project with this new wave sixties vibe,” explained Wren designer Melissa Coker of the film’s retro aesthetic, styled and creative-directed by Lula editor Leith Clark. “And since Tavi has been going that way naturally with her own style, she immediately came to mind.” Enter Tavi singing Dory Previn’s 1970 classic “Beware of Young Girls,” a pitch-perfect homage to an era that equally informs Coker’s Fall collection in print and silhouette. “The song’s about a young girl and it’s being performed by a young girl, but it has the weight and sophistication of an older soul,” says Coker.

The transformation came naturally. “My style used to be a lot about colors and prints on their own, outside of any cultural context, just looking at the colors and images and composing it all like a painting,” she said. And now, nearing her sweet 16, her choices convey more purpose. “Now, I’m more interested in the context of it, and for some reason the sixties style really appeals to me—the hairstyles and the makeup and the prints. I get excited to wear these clothes and have this hair and embody that world a little bit more.” And while Coker channels that winsome element that so keenly characterizes the Wren girl, Tavi is plum for the part. “I like trying to create some sort of character with every outfit that I put on.” Before the film screens at a private party in New York tonight, Style.com has the exclusive first look at the full film, below.

Fashion Week, Turned Up To 11

-------

Every New York fashion week is filled with its fair share of memorable performances, both at shows and at the host of after-parties. This week should be no exception. On Thursday night, the Citizens Band, spearheaded by Karen Elson and Sarah Sophie Flicker, is set to turn Milk Studios into a sexy boudoir for their burlesque-style performance in Erickson Beamon’s “Deca-Dance” presentation. (They will, of course, be wearing Erickson Beamon pieces.) Following the cabaret show, Lissy Trullie, Cleo Le-Tan (sister of designer Olympia Le-Tan), Venus XX, and rap group Wu-Tang Clan are each doing a set at Milk for the MADE and Lexus Launch Event. If that’s not enough to make your night, the Kills’ Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince (a.k.a. Mr. Moss) will be rocking out at the Standard’s Boom Boom Room—we’re told it’s their last performance for a long time before they go back to the studio to work on their next album. On Friday night, the Ting Tings and Santigold (who fronted Alexander Wang’s T ad campaign for Fall ’11) will be on hand to put on a show (Ting Tings) and DJ (Santigold) at The Box for a Glamour party. The following day, Style.com has learned that actress and singer Alia Shawkat, familiar to many from her starring role in the much-missed sitcom Arrested Development, will be singing during Rachel Antonoff’s presentation at Drive In Studios.
