Clothing fit for spending every day out on your corner in the pouring rain? Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine joins the family business and founds a fashion line, 222, named for his lucky number. Apparently his brief obsession with Balenciaga, Ann Demeulemeester, and Margiela has given way to a preference for leather jackets, jeans, and ripped tees—all of which he’ll now sell you, too. [WWD]
Speaking of rocker fashion, Liam Gallagher’s lookbook for his Pretty Green line is out, starring noted model Liam Gallagher. Said Gallagher spends the entire lookbook gazing upwards, looking confused (left). [NY Mag]
Today’s trend report: teddy bears, now a thing. See: Karl Lagerfeld for Steiff, a couch made of teddy bear fur, some squeezable Miu Miu skirts, and Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s dog, Teddy. [The Moment]
And the latest Target collaboration may be our favorite one yet. Wait for it: Simon Doonan. Halloween costumes. Including his-’n'-hers spaghetti-and-meatballs costumes. Yes, yes, and yes. [WWD]
At long last, Lanvin is opening its own Manhattan flagship. As usual, there’s no putting it better than Alber Elbaz: “It’s about time,” he said. Hear, hear. The new store bows on Madison and 68th Street in September. [WWD]
Perhaps not as eagerly anticipated: Betty White’s clothing line. Can’t blame a (Golden) girl for riding the wave of her surging popularity. [WWD]
The rainmaker, according to Dolce & Gabbana? David Beckham. “Things really started to change in men’s when we started to work occasionally with David Beckham. He was the channel we needed to speak to men,” Stefano Gabbana told the L.A. Times. (And speaking of the Dolce boys, they’ll be on CNN’s Revealed tonight.) [LAT via Vogue U.K.]
Christian Lacroix’s new creative director, Sacha Walckhoff, says he’d be open to doing a fast-fashion collaboration with the likes of Target or H&M. Sounds good to us, but my God, what would Patsy and Edina say? [NY Mag]
Erin Wasson x RVCA? Let’s make that Erin Wasson, ex-RVCA. The model and the surf-and-skate brand have apparently terminated their partnership. [Fashionista]
Target’s newest megastore opens its doors in Harlem later this month, so to celebrate its new home, the brand tapped a few designers to create limited-edition, Harlem-centric items, a portion of the profits from which will go to neighborhood causes of their choosing. Isabel and Ruben Toledo contributed swimwear and cover-ups (Isabel-designed and Ruben-illustrated), like the graphic bikini and beach towel, above. (“El Museo,” perched atop the towel-lady’s coif, stands in for the collection’s beneficiary—El Museo del Barrio.) Designer Stephen Burrows designed brightly color-blocked dresses, and chef Marcus Samuelsson, whose new restaurant, Red Rooster, is slated to open in Harlem this fall, had a hand in fruit- and- vegetable-print potholders and kitchen accessories (the latter two to benefit libraries in local schools).
Isabel and Ruben Toledo for Target towel, $24.99, and bikini top and bottom, $17.99 each, available July 25 at Target, 517 E. 117 St., NYC, (212) 835-0860, and beginning August 1 at www.target.com.
Target’s next conquest: Mulberry. The English label will create bags for the mass retailer, which will debut on October 10. [WWD]
A quick word from Jil Sander (the woman, not the brand): Her signature style is “pure,” please, not “minimal,” which “can be very empty.” Noted! [Hint Mag]
Tyra Banks made waves when she announced she’s re-signed with IMG (though, she cautions, for endorsements more than modeling; “don’t expect to see me at any go-sees”), and now her agency Polaroids have surfaced. Future ANTM contestants, consider these poses your homework. [Fashionologie]
And speaking of models, the Times heads for rural Brazil with model scout Alisson Chornak as he hunts for the next Gisele. Meanwhile, some Brazilians are wondering why the Brazilian look is so often identified with and exported as light-eyed, straight-haired blondes, when more and more darker-skinned actresses and models are finding success at home. Lais Ribeiro (pictured), could this be your moment? [NYT]
