Suzy Menkes talks to Pierre Cardin in a new video, where she pays tribute to the designer’s 60 years as a fashion visionary. Looking back at six decades of Cardin, complete with space themes, pagoda shoulders, and piles of gold, we were put in mind of one thing: Fall 2010. Visionary indeed! [The Crane]
Natalia Vodianova is taking to the big screen in the upcoming action flick Clash of the Titans, where she’ll play the Greek monster Medusa. Leave it to the girl to make snake hair look chic—check it out, below. [Modelinia]
Marc by Marc Jacobs has opened its first shop in Milan, where it will house the label’s first combination boutique/café. [WWD]
And in similarly urgent Marc Jacobs news, we now know—thanks to a venturesome audience member at a Q&A yesterday—that the designer prefers briefs to boxers. When he’s not appearing naked, that is. [NY Mag]
It’s a changing of the guard at DVF: Longtime creative director Nathan Jenden (pictured, with Diane) is stepping down to focus on his own line, and Yves Mispelaere—formerly of Chloé and Gucci—is taking the reins. [WWD]
Collab-happy Comme des Garçons is at it again. The brand is working with Moncler in Japan to launch a pop-up store at CDG’s revolving storefront in Aoyama, selling both labels’ designs and select co-branded items. In usually cryptic Comme fashion, a spokeswoman wouldn’t comment on what exactly would be offered. So…Tokyo road trip? [WWD]
The New York Times takes the temperature of Zac Posen, who’s toned down the theatrics of his shows and lifestyle to focus on his collections. It’s the latest in a long line of What the Recession Means to Me pieces, but it’s worth a read for the gossip and the good advice. (For example: Don’t try to style Zac with the Count from Sesame Street. It’s just a coincidence that they kind of look and dress alike.) [NYT]
Gawker’s story yesterday about fashion week’s attempted teenage crashers has every PR person in town on high alert. But these guys have snuck in before. Fashionista has a shot of Remy Renzullo sitting front-row at Derek Lam—right next to Suzy Menkes. Oops. [Fashionista]
The W Hotels chain has named a fashion director, stylist Amanda Ross. She’ll “associate [the W] with the right designers,” meaning we’re not sure exactly what. Discount rates for all? [WSJ]
The world is furiously debating the merits of Apple’s new iPad tablet. Let the techies argue the specs. (You can follow the action here.) We’re asking the truly hard-hitting question: Will Suzy Menkes trade in her customary front-row laptop for one?
Is the It bag’s long, slow death finally over? While also in mourning, Suzy Menkes drives the final nail. Rising from the once highly coveted tote’s fresh grave? The Fantasy Shoe, the Bang-Up Bauble, and even actual clothes.
Model-turned-photog Christina Kruse thinks that all publishing went downhill after the Gutenberg Bible. Oh Christina, you’ve no idea how low it can go.
Don’t hate on awards season overload; embrace. The BAFTAs are next, and, for now, the Brit under-30 set is untarnished, talented, and refreshingly underexposed. For now.
It looks like someone at the Academy put his thinking cap on: “There has been a whisper as well that some celebrity arrivals on Oscar night might not walk the red carpet at all—a twist that would force the curious actually to watch the show itself…” So that’s how you’re going to play it? Game on.
The marmot speaks: six more weeks of winter. Awesome.
