Actor and artist Dennis Hopper died in May 2010, but this month, his collaboration with Vans that started roughly 18 months ago finally hits Urban Outfitters stores. The ten-piece collection of boots, jackets, and graphic T-shirts featuring some of his photographs was completed by his daughter and the Hopper Foundation. [WWD]
We’ve already seen the multiple new covers of the latest issue of Love, featuring young, new faces like Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld. But the latest shoot to hit the Web features a star of slightly more vintage stock: Liza Minnelli, shot in black leather and fur by Terry Richardson. [Vogue.U.K.]
Julianne Moore reprises a recent role: the face of Talbots. The redheaded actress will be the star of the retailer’s Fall ’11 campaign, having first appeared in the label’s campaign for Spring ’10. [Racked]
It’s become a joke at the office how much I love leopard print. My colleague Matthew Schneier even teased me this week: “What are you doing when this trend goes away?” Easy: Save all my pieces and wear them again later, that’s for sure. I’ve been collecting leopard for years, and I still wear the first item I “borrowed” from my mother—a D&G leopard-print button-down from the nineties—alongside more recent finds like Alexander Wang’s leopard Alla wedge. Next on my wish list is from an unlikelier source—Talbots. Scoff if you must, but the mass retailer’s haircalf bag is great. It may look small, but it’s roomy enough to fit my entire life during fashion week. And if Talbots is good enough for Linda Evangelista—its newest campaign star—it’s good enough for me.
If you need inspiration for integrating leopard into your wardrobe, check out Dries Van Noten’s Fall ’10 collection. He set the trend of mixing leopard with military-inspired items, which I’m loving right now. Or for more cool ideas, try Riccardo Tisci’s Resort ’11 collection for Givenchy—cool whites look even crisper when paired with spots.
