Last night, Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld debuted the results of their latest collaborative efforts, The Little Black Jacket book and related exhibition, featuring 113 portraits of some of the coolest names in fashion from Alexander Wang to Linda Evangelista. Tonight, however, another set of portraits of an equally impressive bunch gets its official unveiling at the Hole Gallery on Bowery Street. Portrait of a Generation, as it’s called, is like a yearbook for the hip artists and designers of New York City. Over 100 of them, world-renowned artists like Olivier Zahm, André Saraiva, and Ryan McGinley, paired up and exchanged portraits (of all varieties—photos, drawings, and paintings). One of the most intriguing ones? A portrait of Yoko Ono, lensed by Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl at Ono’s studio in front of her beautiful dot drawings, which the Threeasfour designers Adi Gil, Angela Donhauser, and Gabriel Asfour then remixed to their own liking. “We dressed the picture on a mirror background with our fractal shapes that we created for our last Fall 2012 collection, Full Circle,” they tell Style.com. For those who don’t know the backstory, Lennon has contributed music and performed live for several of the label’s shows, and Ono has been a muse to the designers. Here, Style.com has a first look at the portrait. (Yoko also shot the three designers, which is on view as part of the exhibition.)
Portrait of a Generation, open tonight through August 10, the Hole Gallery, 312 Bowery, NYC.
Som and Tom? Perhaps. Peter Som and Tommy Hilfiger are reportedly discussing bringing Som on as a “part-time creative consultant.” Som, who was formerly the creative director at Bill Blass, presumably knows a lot about American sportswear. [WWD]
Richard Chai—Love is the name of the designer’s new “boy-loves-girl-girl-loves-boy’s-clothing” take on contemporary dressing, and the slouchy, languid-looking separates for men and women will be what guests see at [Chai's] runway show next week. His original, higher-end line isn’t going anywhere, you just have to see it at the showroom. [WWD]
And Chai’s making Keds! They’re for men, but we kind of want them for ourselves. We don’t think he would mind. [WWD]
Drama! Katie Holmes’ new line—Holmes & Yang—has bumped BFF Victoria Beckham‘s dVb denim line out of the rotation at Maxfield’s in L.A. In the cutthroat world of boutique buying, we’re sure that’s exactly how it happened. [Page Six]
Now that you mention it, Georgia May Jagger does look an awful lot like Brigitte Bardot. [Telegraph U.K.]
Sean Lennon and his girlfriend with the amazing name—Kemp Muhl—re-created Lennon’s parents’ (you know, John and Yoko) famous nude Rolling Stones cover. Except this time Lennon is fully clothed and Muhl is totally naked. Convenient, Sean. [Huffington Post]
Swaim Hutson of Obedient Sons & Daughters is the new guy at Generra.
And by new guy we mean creative director. [WWD]
