Tim Hamilton and Seth Price Bring Folklore U.S. To Germany, And More of Today’s Top Stories

-------

Tim Hamilton has collaborated with Seth Price on Folklore U.S., an installation of paintings and fabric sculptures on display in the Friedrichsplatz Parking Garage in Kassel, Germany, as part of dOCUMENTA (13). Aligning with Price’s interest in military tailoring, Hamilton designed a collection seven garments, including a bomber jacket, flight suit, and trench coat. [Galerie Capitain]

This summer’s Olympics are drawing quite the crowd. Rumors have surfaced that some of Britain’s most iconic supermodels, like Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, will appear in the Closing Ceremony in London on August 12. The models will reportedly be wearing clothes by Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood. [Telegraph]

Kate Moss’ modeling days are brushing off on her hubby, Jamie Hince. The British rocker is starring in a new photography book entitled Dream & Drive alongside his Kills band mate Alison Mosshart. The musical duo were photographed by Kenneth Cappello and selected their favorite pics to be included in the book, due out in August. [Vogue U.K.]

It’s going to be a big year for Chloé. The French house is getting ready to celebrate its 60th anniversary, with a handful of special events lined up. The party will kick off with a September 28 exhibition at the Paris’s Palais de Tokyo prior to the release of a Rizzoli tome. Then, shortly after the label’s Paris catwalk show, creative director Clare Waight Keller will oversee the opening of a new 4,300-square-foot flagship store on the Rue Saint-Honoré.

Zadig & Voltaire & Erin, Bergdorf’s Bets On Basics, A Lighter Shade Of Pale At Proenza, And More…

-------

RVCA’s loss, Zadig & Voltaire’s gain? The French label has tapped Erin Wasson as its face for all of 2011—Spring and Fall—and will debut a capsule collection designed by the model later this year. [Elle U.K.]

Speaking of capsule collections, men can look forward to a new one, too: Bergdorf Goodman has commissioned Tim Hamilton to design a basics line for their men’s shop, consisting of, in the words of men’s fashion director Nickelson Wooster, “modern essentials: the perfect chino, the perfect V-neck sweater, the perfect polo.” [WWD]

Today on their Web site, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler debuted their ethereal new Spring 2011 campaign, shot by Willy Vanderperre and starring Melissa Tammerijn and Julia Nobis. [Proenza Schouler]

The pregnant-model and -starlet boom continues: Devon Aoki is the latest to announce she’s expecting. (Psst—if you’re looking for a dress, DA, we’ve got a few suggestions right this way.) [Page Six]

And news to us: Madonna has her own tartan. [WSJ]

Quiet Riot

-------


Unis’ Eunice Lee isn’t one to shout. The Parsons-trained menswear designer—one of the few visible women steadfastly working in the men’s game—makes clothes that are understated and unbranded. “Even the fit is really quiet,” she’s said. So despite being carried by stores like Barneys, Bloomingdale’s, and Fred Segal, holding court in her own Elizabeth Street boutique, and counting the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal as admirers, she’s mostly flown under the radar.

The past year has seen that change somewhat, with her nomination for GQ‘s Best New Menswear Designer award this year. But though Unis may be many things, “new” isn’t one of them. The label celebrated its tenth anniversary this year, and toasted the occasion with a rager at New York’s Dominion over the weekend. “It’s crazy how time flies—so hard to believe it’s already been ten years,” Lee said with a shrug. Prabal Gurung, Tim Hamilton, Humberto Leon, and half of the men’s editors and stylists in New York—many clad in Unis chinos—came out, as did a surprise guest: Mos (the artist formerly known as Mos Def, pictured, with Lee). The rapper-turned-actor is a longtime fan of the label and, Lee confides, a huge fan of those chinos. Fresh from a performance at Lincoln Center, where he’s starring in the John Guare play A Free Man of Color, he paused the raucous dancing with a serenade, “The Way You Look Tonight.”

At Redux, The Kicks Are All New

-------

Tim Hamilton shows his eponymous menswear in Paris these days, but the New York-based designer hasn’t left his hometown fans out in the cold—for the second season in a row, he’s showing his secondary collection, Tim Hamilton Redux, during New York fashion week. Redux began as a sort of greatest-hits collection, reissuing favorite staples from Hamilton’s eponymous line, but it’s since grown into an entity of its very own, one that skews younger and more street-influenced than the avant-garde main line. That’s not to say it’s not plenty avant in its own right. For the September 10 presentation, art star (and James Franco pal) Kalup Linzy will be DJ’ing and performing, and photographer Collier Schorr will debut a new video featuring the collection. As for accessories, the occasion will see the launch of Dana Lorenz’s first men’s pieces for Fenton/Fallon as well as a new footwear collaboration with Lacoste. “I wanted to work with the original Rene Lacoste shoe and give it a harder tone,” Hamilton says. “By adding a black finish and a high top, it appears to be a mesh—sneaker meets military shoe.” Cadets interested in a pair will be glad to know they’ll be sold with the Redux collection, hitting stores this January.

Alexandra Richards Goes Bare, Tim Hamilton Goes Private, Miu Miu Goes Tuscan, And More…

Tim Hamilton canceled his eponymous menswear show in Paris, opting to show the new collection by private appointment instead. “It’s about the clothing at the end of the day, not the spectacle,” the designer said. [WWD]

Miu Miu opens its newest shop in Forte dei Marmi, Italy, the Tuscan town where the rich and famous (like Giorgio Armani and Andrea Bocelli) keep villas. Funny, we always thought of Bocelli as more Prada than Miu Miu, but it is hard to resist those kitty collars. [Racked]

And, so you can decide for yourself: Pieces from James Franco’s art opening. [On Location Vacations]
