London Called, Dolce & Gabbana Answered

-------

Stefano Gabbana and Domenico DolceAs the men’s shows approach, the London Collections: Men (which will run from June 16 to 18) seems to be gaining more steam. Today, Dolce & Gabbana announced that it will open its fourth London boutique with a bash on June 15. Additionally, after being invited to kick off the season by London Collections: Men chair and British GQ editor in chief Dylan Jones, the brand will show its Spring ’14 tailoring collection during the event. Dolce & Gabbana, whose designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana noted in a statement that British tailoring is part of the house’s DNA, join high-profile names such as Burberry Prorsum, Rag & Bone, Paul Smith, and Jimmy Choo in presenting in London for the first time this season

Jason Wu Celebrates With His Other First Lady, Stephanie Seymour

-------

Publicists tend to use the phrase “intimate dinner” loosely on invitations, and you can usually take “intimate” to mean they invited just under five hundred people and twice as many photographers. But the cozy supper that Cindi Leive hosted for Jason Wu last night at The Beatrice Inn had a genuine friends-and-family feeling. That’s provided your friends and family include, as Wu’s do, Chanel Iman, Bryanboy, and Stephanie Seymour, the star of the designer’s newly minted ad campaign. Bryanboy, a fashion-show fixture these last few seasons, mentioned that he’ll be missing Milan and Paris this time around, as he’ll be busy filming new episodes of America’s Next Top Model in L.A. We imagine @stefanogabbana is breaking out the sad-face emoticon as we speak. Leive decided to throw the bash on the spur of the moment to celebrate Wu’s coup in dressing Michelle Obama for the inauguration. “I know you don’t like to bask,” the Glamour editor said, addressing the guest of honor in a brief speech before dinner. “Oh no,” Wu interjected, “I like to bask.”

D&G Is D&G Is…You

-------

Few fashion labels are as tapped into social media as Dolce & Gabbana. The Italian design duo has over three million Facebook fans and 203,250 Twitter followers (and counting). Plenty of them have shed a virtual tear since the brand announced that it was discontinuing its lower-priced D&G collection, but Domenico and Stefano would rather go out with a bang than a whimper. To celebrate the line’s last season, they’re asking their devotees to create music videos for a remix of D&G’s very own dance song, “D&G Music,” made several years ago and featuring Stefano repeating the brand mantra: “D&G is D&G, D&G is love.” The call will go out today, and aspiring directors have until January 9 to deliver their clips to www.dandgisdandg.com, after which the designers will handpick their favorites to be edited into a final video to be debuted on YouTube. For more information on the project, watch this video below.


Duran Duran, Super-Sized

-------

The eighties gave us supermodels, and they gave us Duran Duran. Fast-forward to 2011 and they’re all making headlines again. The band recruited five über-supers for a video for “Girl Panic!,” its new single off the album All You Need Is Now, released earlier this year. In the nine-minute clip directed by Jonas Akerlund (the Grammy Award winner behind Lady Gaga’s “Telephone”) and made in collaboration with Swarovski Elements, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen, and Yasmin LeBon play Simon, John, Nick, Roger, and an “anonymous guitarist,” while the real members of the group appear as bellhops, waiters, chauffeurs, and paparazzi. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana even make cameos as Harper’s Bazaar U.K.‘s guest editors during a photo shoot scene, images from which can be found in that magazine’s actual December issue. “It’s all daft stuff, but it’s fantastic daft stuff,” says John Taylor in a “making of” video that Style.com is debuting exclusively here. Check back on Tuesday, November 8, for our interview with Nick Rhodes and the complete music video.

Celebrating The David (No, The Other One)

-------

Michelangelo’s David doesn’t have much competition in the perfectly-sculpted department, but one man who can challenge him on the ab front is David Gandy. The English-born model’s swarthy good looks and impossible physique have made him a favorite of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who have long cast him in their shows and campaigns. Gandy hit the catwalk for the Spring ’12 Dolce show on Saturday, then was paraded through the streets before arriving at a private party in his honor at the label’s Milan store. The occasion? The publication of David Gandy by Dolce & Gabbana, a coffee table—or, ahem, bedside—compendium of the best of DG in (and out of) D&G. Here, a few shots from the new book. Like his look? Gandyesque proportions may be beyond the reach of the common man, but the model is happy to provide a few style tips to guys in need, via his own dedicated iPhone app.
