Recessionista: Jenna Lyons Is Sharpie Sighted

-------

What: An art-world version of a beloved real-world staple: the Sharpie marker re-created by brand-subverting artist Tom Sachs.

Why: Because even though it’s more than you’re used to spending on a permanent marker, it’s far less than you’d spend on art. “[It’s] the closest that most of us will get to the art world, with a practical application. And it’s cool,” says J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons, who is well versed on affordable luxury.

Indochine: Hot For The Holidays?

-------

Sure, Indochine’s sultry lighting, tropical decor, and impossibly attractive staff had its heyday in the eighties, but there’s clearly still some allure left in the old girl. Spotted dining there last night, at separate tables: Interview editorial director Fabien Baron with Paris Vogue stylist Ludivine Poiblanc; Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld celebrating his birthday with a big group of friends including Stavros Niarchos, Lily Donaldson, and sister Julia; and artist Tom Sachs with an unidentified friend.

Blasblog: Visionaire Pops Up, Bubbles Over

-------

Theory: Visionaire might just have the best parties in fashiondom. Exhibit A: Last night was perhaps one of the best fêtes yet: a celebration of the über-mag’s collaboration with Krug on its 55th edition. (This time it’s a series of pop-up books designed by the likes of Steven Klein and Steven Meisel.) The Champagne powerhouse took over Tom Sachs’ Soho studio, stocking it full of Champagne and caviar. (Editor’s note: That’s the kind of home invasion we’d fully welcome.) The party drew Diane von Furstenberg, Margherita Missoni, Vito Schnabel, Stavros Niarchos, and Luke Grimes, but what kept them was a surprise performance by the Harlem Gospel Choir, who barreled into the studio singing Beyoncé′s “Put a Ring on It.” Mario Testino, front and center with Visionaire‘s Stephen Gan, shouted for a “dance-off” at one point, with Tiana, the lead singer of that particular tune. With the champers running like water, there was one potential danger: the millions of dollars of artwork lining the walls. “I’m so nervous I’m going to touch something I’m not supposed to,” sighed Lily Donaldson, who came with her boyfriend, Vladimir Roitfeld. “Like over there it says ashtray. But is it really? Am I going to burn down a million-dollar piece of art?” She didn’t, but only because Natalia Vodianova showed up and sequestered her crew to a corner. “I’m only here for one night,” she said. “So I have to catch up with everyone right now.”
