Designer Zoë Jordan (pictured) has a bit of risk-taking in the blood: Her father is the Irish F1 racing icon Eddie Jordan. But a life in the fast lane wasn’t what Jordan had in mind for thrills; it was making the jump from finance to fashion. “I was in New York about four years ago, but I was a bond trader then. It’s my first time coming back,” Jordan reminisced at the stateside debut of her London-based line, Irwin & Jordan, last night. “I’ve actually enjoyed New York this time, because I’m not getting up at five a.m.! And now that I’m doing fashion, it doesn’t feel like work at all. I love it.”
Fun as it may be, Jordan’s 2-year-old label has earned some notable stripes. The recently engaged designer counts a group of Brit girls-about-town, including Alexa Chung and Sienna Miller, as fans of her sharp Savile Row-style tailoring and feminine touches. At the New York fête, a polished set snapped up the pre-order Fall 2010 pieces. Most styles, such as a mini-houndstooth blazer with leather shoulder detailing or a rosy nude double-faced silk dress with oversize lapels, hovered in the $300 to $600 range. Meanwhile, West Hollywood boutique Arcade by Rochelle Gores has picked up the line, where it’ll soon share rack space with labels like Alexis Mabille, Kimberly Ovitz, and Erdem. That might be enough for most designers looking for kicks, but not Jordan. “I climbed Macchu Picchu about two months ago, and I’ve got a marathon coming up,” she said. “I guess I do like a little bit of a rush every now and then.”
Kanye’s back. The rapper posed for Bathing Ape’s Spring 2010 lookbook, alternating between “befuddled Kanye” and “I’m-trying-to-look-serious-and-dangerous-as-I-wear-a-hoodie-with-cute-faces-on-it Kanye.” Welcome back, Mr. West. [The Cut]
Judienna is not even trying to hide. The paparazzi fodder that is the reunited Sienna Miller and Jude Law got in full-on Caribbean-vacation mode together this weekend—which, as far as tabloids are concerned, is essentially a proposal of marriage. [The Daily Mail]
Meanwhile, Lindsay’s new romance with Gucci model Adam Senn is heating up, and by “heating up” we mean “spies” reported seeing them together at her sister’s birthday party. Well, in that case, let’s set a date. [NY Daily News]
English Laundry has signed a three-year licensing deal to produce a menswear line featuring John Lennon’s image and artwork. Yoko Ono is involved in the designs, which include details like button snaps etched with peace signs, along with knits and outerwear. Imagine all the T-shirts…. [WWD]
Roland Mouret knows his way around a party frock. He’s the designer who made Scarlett Johansson and Sienna Miller look equally va-va-voom in his hourglass Galaxy dress. And it’s a good bet it won’t be long before you start seeing celebs in his latest creations. Mouret has reunited with Net-a-Porter.com to exclusively offer a collection of six minidresses and one miniskirt suit in silk gazar, along with a “power mesh” underpinning that the Web site calls a “high-fashion alternative to figure-sculpting foundation wear.” Mouret, for the record, calls it something for a guy to play with at home after the party. From left to right, the Rainbow Project dresses go for $1,495, $1,560, $1,740, $2,265 (for the suit), $1,670, $3,070, and $1,670, and each comes in the celadon, mango, tangerine, rose, magenta, turquoise, and navy colors shown here. They went on sale this morning. Now, the hard part: How to choose?
