Zoë Jordan’s Risky Business

-------

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.”

BAPE Heads Due West, Jude and Sienna Fly South, and More…

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]

Blasblog: Taking A Night Off From the Nightlife

-------


Although I was nominated for a Paper Magazine Nightlife Award—for best nightlife blog, thank you very much!—I had a pretty good excuse for missing the awards ceremony last night: orchestra seats to the Sydney Theatre Company’s production of Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire at BAM, starring the incredible Cate Blanchett as Blanche DuBois. Since Williams spent some of his formative years in St. Louis, Missouri, where I spent all of mine, I’ve had a mild obsession with the playwright since I was a young man. I’ve read all his plays and see every revival when they come to town. (When Ashley Judd took to Broadway a few years back in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, I saw it twice.)

Not to get all Brooks Atkinson on you, but without a doubt, Blanchett’s performances was one of the most dynamic I’ve seen on any stage, in any Williams play. Her Blanche was eloquent, mad, and pathetic—and funny, punching up an aspect of the play that often gets lost in more dour productions. (The woman’s a comedian, too? What can’t she do?)

Joining me in the audience was Sienna Miller, who had just finished her own run on Broadway in the title role of After Miss Julie. Admitting she was secretly pleased to not have to do two performances that day, she added that she was just as blown away by Blanchett’s performance as I was. “One day, I hope to be up there too, as good as she is,” she said. “But right now I’m telling myself I’m just too young.”

And apparently I didn’t win that Paper award, anyway.

She’s A Rainbow

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?

I’ll Have What She’s Having

-------


Twenty8Twelve’s Savannah Miller is in town from London to catch her sister Sienna in After Miss Julie, and to do some profile-raising for their contemporary brand. Last night, the two of them hosted an intimate dinner for a few editors and friends in the penthouse at the Royalton Hotel. Sienna, who told us there was “more of me” in the Spring show than ever, wore a jumpsuit from the collection in a print that our reviewer Tim Blanks lovingly called “a Willem de Kooning paint orgasm.” Why weren’t we surprised when Savannah told us that the colorful, abstract print is a hit with retailers?
