Alexandre Mattiussi Wins ANDAM’s Top Prize

-------

Alexandre Mattiussi

AMI‘s Alexandre Mattiussi won this year’s ANDAM Fashion Prize in Paris yesterday, beating out an international list of contenders that included Olympia Le-Tan, Maison Rabih Kayrouz, Iris Van Herpen, Yang Li, and Masha Ma. Mattiussi will receive 250,000 euros and mentoring from Renzo Rosso. ANDAM’s First Collection Prize went to Christine Phung. She’ll take home 75,000 euros. At the cocktail party that followed the competition, Mattiussi revealed that he and Phung were in the same class at France’s Duperré School. Mattiussi does menswear and Phung women’s, but they took similar paths to launching their own lines, apprenticing at different houses—Givenchy and Marc Jacobs for his part, and Christophe Lemaire, Chloé, Vanessa Bruno, Lacoste, and Dior for hers. An award ceremony will take place on October 3, during Paris Fashion Week.

Paris in New York

-------

Soho got a French infusion last night with the official opening party for Vanessa Bruno’s Greene Street pop-up shop. After opening several retail locations in her native France, then in London, then Los Angeles, and a few spots in Asia, the designer now has her sights set on New York. She plans on eventually opening a permanent New York flagship, but a fashion-week pop-up is a good place to start. And when she saw the space that was available—an open 1,300-square-foot loft—she simply couldn’t resist. “You cannot find anything like this in Paris. And you can do a lot with a place like this,” Bruno told Style.com. Indeed, she did do a lot with it—the pop-up features her Spring ’13 collection, a Ladurée Macaron counter, Diptyque candles, and wall-sized blowups of this season’s ad campaign starring Stella Tennant. It was a nice pause française for guests like Natalie Joos, Tallulah Harlech, and Zani Gugelmann in the midst of New York fashion week. Said Leandra Medine, “I am really happy about Paris relocating to New York—getting to Soho is way cheaper than Le Marais.”

The Vanessa Bruno pop-up shop is located at 131 Greene Street and is open through February 26.

Vanessa Bruno Pops Over From Paris

-------

Get ready to give Vanessa Bruno a big New York welcome. On February 7, the Paris-based designer will open a pop-up in Soho—a venture that, she says, could be a prelude to a permanent New York store. “Of course we have plans, but I don’t want to rush. And I want to find the right place. I love so many different areas in New York that it’s hard for me to choose,” says the designer of a potential New York outpost. (In addition to ten boutiques in France, Bruno already has stand-alone stores in L.A., London, Spain, Japan, and Australia.)

Bruno, who’s been making regular trips to New York since childhood, loves Manhattan’s melting pot of personalities and styles. She hopes to express this in her store—with a Parisian twist, of course. Stationed in a loft at 131 Greene Street, the two-floor pop-up will feature Bruno’s Spring ’13 collection as well as items from some of the designer’s favorite French shops, like Diptyque (“I love their packaging and I wear their perfume”) and Ladurée (“It’s beautiful, high quality, and their macarons are the typical Parisian sweet”). French film company MK2 will also contribute a special project, and books from Bernard Chauveau will be on offer.

According to Bruno, “nomad” is the concept behind the store, so nothing will be permanent—that includes the walls. Apparently, they’ll all be mobile and printed with Bruno’s ethereal Spring ’13 images of Stella Tennant (above), which were shot by Mark Borthwick. While the boutique certainly has a French focus (“I just wanted to bring the Parisian spirit to New York for a month!” says Bruno) the designer has created one particularly patriotic item: a limited-edition, American flag-embellished version of her signature sequined tote. She’s only made 50—one for each state.

Vanessa Bruno’s pop-up will be located at 131 Greene Street and runs from February 7 through February 26.

Get the Look: Look Twice

-------

Harper’s Bazaar Russia’s Fashion Editor, Maria Kolosova, has a magic touch—or at least a quick way with sleight of hand. Snapped in Paris by street-style photographer Vanessa Jackman, Kolosova looked front-row ready in what looks like a skirt and sweater—and that’s actually a brocade Sportmax dress. Leave the illusions to the pros; copy her get-up with equally chic separates. We’ve gathered pieces from Vanessa Bruno, Karl Lagerfeld, T by Alexander Wang and more, that are sure to do the trick.
