Paltrow’s Coach Shots To Debut, Giorgio Armani’s Favorite Is Jenny From The Block, Karl Is Coming Soon Macy’s, And More…

-------

Actress, mom, author, singer, and chef are a few of Gwyneth Paltrow’s jobs these days. Photos from one of her newest roles, as the international ambassador of Coach, have finally been released, and she’s looking like the ultra American girl. The Peter Lindbergh-shot ads are set to roll out internationally, but unfortunately, they will never be in print on U.S. soil. [WWD]

Giorgio Armani truly knows how to make performers get a standing ovation, at least for the way they are dressed. The designer picked out his top five musical moments for W. Jennifer Lopez topped the list in her pink Armani Privé dress from the 2010 Academy Awards. [W]

Vivienne Westwood’s oldest son, Ben, is joining forces with Savile Row tailor Cad & the Dandy for a ready-to-wear collection. Westwood, who showed his menswear collection for the first time at last year’s London fashion week, plans to add his “signature edge” to the line, known for their bespoke suits. [Vogue.U.K.]

Soon you can get your Lagerfeld look at Macy’s. Although the collaborative efforts between Macy’s and the designer were officially announced last November, new details on the collection were released today. Expect high collars and “edgier, rock ‘n’ roll looks” available at Macy’s prices, hitting stores at the end of August. We have yet to find out if a version of Lagerfeld’s signature black gloves is included in the offerings. [WWD]

“To His Coy Mistress”

-------

Innovate or die. The tried-and-true mantra may still ring in the halls of business schools, but in the more hide-bound corners of fashion, it occasionally falls on deaf ears. Tradition über alles? Not at one sharp-thinking shop on Savile Row. London’s Henry Herbert Tailors offers a more modern service for bespoke clients on the go: tailoring to your door via Vespa. “Henry Herbert Tailors now offers round-the-clock suit tailoring, using our fleet of Vespa scooters to visit customers wherever and whenever is good for them,” the suitmaker reports, noting that its qualified tailors are also fully qualified motorcyclists. That’s a fine concession to contemporary life, but some truths are immortal: wealthy and powerful gentlemen (i.e., custom customers) are occasionally cads, too. That’s why Herbert’s tailors offer to reach them “at their desk, apartment, mistress’ flat, or airport lounge.”

ALICE On The Way, Kawaii Couture, And More…

-------

Vogue U.K. gets the first look at Alice Temperley’s new ALICE diffusion line, which hits stores this February. The low-down: more of the designer’s signature wild prints and girly silhouettes, less of your hard-earned cash to get ‘em. Here’s a second look from the upcoming collection, left. [Vogue U.K.]

Blogger looks at couture, sees Pokemon. We never thought we’d say so but, yeah, if we squint, we sorta can, too. [Textbook]

Sundance TV goes deeper into the world of fashion with two new series and two new Web programs. They’ll cover designer denim, the red carpet, fashion week preparations, and Savile Row, respectively, so we can safely say there’s something for everybody—except, maybe, that person that turns to Sundance for movies. Well, there’s always the festival for that. [WWD]

And the bloggers at New York noticed that Jon Hamm’s beard—a mainstay of awards season to date—is no longer with us. Ave atque vale, lumberjack facial hair. (And hello again, Don Draper!) [NY Mag]
