“I want our stores to be a real environment where you can hang out, like a house,” says designer Adam Lippes, who opens his newest boutique today in Nolita. “Elizabeth Street is so beautiful and vibrant; it’s a place people like to go and have brunch.”
Brunchers will now be able to pick up Lippes’ namesake collection, as well as his collaborations with the jewelry label Lulu Frost and the handbag line he’s set to launch, which will be hanging on the racks at the new 1,008-square-foot space at 211 Elizabeth Street. Lippes included the same design elements from his Hudson Street store, like a hand-picked selection of antiques, photos (mostly from Lippes’ personal collection), and books, to create a similar cozy atmosphere in his second Manhattan outpost. On Thursday, the designer, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, and filmmaker Tracy Antonopoulos will all be on hand to celebrate the official opening of the store with a Fashion’s Night Out bash. As for his next shop, the downtown designer is looking to make the move uptown.
Club Monaco continues its streak of high-profile lookbook and campaign shooters this season, hiring Ryan McGinley to lens its Spring 2011 ads. It’s tapped top talent, too: Lauren Hutton, Lou Doillon, Tali Lennox, and the Virgins’ Donald Cumming all appear in the spots. But they’ve also got starring roles in the behind-the-scenes video by Tracy Antonopoulos debuting exclusively here on Style.com. Cumming stars not as a rocker frontman or a model, but as a wayward videographer named Johnnie who, while napping during a shoot, dreams of a Doillon romance. And when he wakes up…well, let’s just say dreams can come true.
Friends in high places: not a bad way to promote your new collection. Opening Ceremony called on its longtime pals Jason Schwartzman and Kirsten Dunst to create a film to show off the Spring 2010 collection for its house label, directed by up-and-coming filmmakers Gia Coppola and Tracy Antonopoulos and set to a song by Schwartzman’s band, Coconut Records. (You may remember Jason and Kiki as co-stars in another Coppola flick—Sofia’s Marie Antoinette.) The short will screen at Opening Ceremony’s party for its new Ace Hotel shop Saturday night, but Style.com has the exclusive first look: Inspired by the films of the French nouvelle vague, Non Plus One shows the OC-clad duo drinking coffee, imitating French films, having dance parties, and playing cowboys and Indians. Or, as we like to imagine it, exactly what they’d be doing whether or not the cameras were rolling. Ah, le cinéma vérité.
