Som and Tom? Perhaps. Peter Som and Tommy Hilfiger are reportedly discussing bringing Som on as a “part-time creative consultant.” Som, who was formerly the creative director at Bill Blass, presumably knows a lot about American sportswear. [WWD]
Richard Chai—Love is the name of the designer’s new “boy-loves-girl-girl-loves-boy’s-clothing” take on contemporary dressing, and the slouchy, languid-looking separates for men and women will be what guests see at [Chai's] runway show next week. His original, higher-end line isn’t going anywhere, you just have to see it at the showroom. [WWD]
And Chai’s making Keds! They’re for men, but we kind of want them for ourselves. We don’t think he would mind. [WWD]
Drama! Katie Holmes’ new line—Holmes & Yang—has bumped BFF Victoria Beckham‘s dVb denim line out of the rotation at Maxfield’s in L.A. In the cutthroat world of boutique buying, we’re sure that’s exactly how it happened. [Page Six]
Now that you mention it, Georgia May Jagger does look an awful lot like Brigitte Bardot. [Telegraph U.K.]
Sean Lennon and his girlfriend with the amazing name—Kemp Muhl—re-created Lennon’s parents’ (you know, John and Yoko) famous nude Rolling Stones cover. Except this time Lennon is fully clothed and Muhl is totally naked. Convenient, Sean. [Huffington Post]
Swaim Hutson of Obedient Sons & Daughters is the new guy at Generra.
And by new guy we mean creative director. [WWD]
The Brits recommend wearing leather (hint: it’s going to be big for fall) like “a louche French actress.” So, not like a Hells Angel? [Guardian U.K.]
Spike Jonze may be a film guy, but he’s been linked to fashion types (ex-wife Sofia Coppola then, Michelle Williams now), so his film-inspired accessories collection for Opening Ceremony was really just a matter of time. The film is Where the Wild Things Are, which means fangs, feathers, and horns. Grrr. [W Editors’ Blog]
Do you miss Olivier Theyskens? Yeah, us too. Get yourself an O.T. fix this January when Olivier Theyskens: The Other Side of the Picture, a photo-heavy tome from Assouline with pics by Julien Claessens, comes out. And sigh. [WWD]
In case you were getting bored with the Box’s usual lineup (Siamese twin pole dancers? again?), fear not, change is afoot. [Page Six]
First skinny jeans, now this. Fellows are sporting “Afros, mohawks, dreadlocks, and pompadours” all over town. [NYT]
Images of Jil Sanders’ debut line for Uniqlo hit the Internet on Monday, but details were lacking. Here’s the deal: J+ launches in the U.S. on October 1 and prices range from $21 to $155. [WWD]
Diane Kruger dishes on her Inglourious Basterds style: “The best [part of this role] was actually getting down and dirty. To have the ripped skirt, the [bullet] hole in the leg—being disheveled is usually more fun.” Cue bullet hole-patterned leggings for Spring. [WWD]
Paula Abdul’s out and Posh is in. She’s not coming on as a permanent judge, but Victoria Beckham is slated to tell it like it is on the next season of American Idol. Remember, she was a singer first. [E! Online]
Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, the opera? It’s not too good to be true. Timberbrit is a “tragic tale…Timberlake returns after a long absence to win back Spears’ love, but in the end she chooses the audience’s love above all else.” We almost cried just reading that.
Since Victoria Beckham is one of my favorite (and valid) celebrity designers, I won’t be making any snide ladder climbing metaphors about her new Emporio Armani underwear campaign that just came out this morning. The images are quite the opposite of last season’s, which featured the global brand ambassadors languidly smoldering in some sort of boudoir. The latest pics, also shot by photog pair extraordinaire Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, are somewhat more athletic in nature: Mrs. Becks climbing a ladder sporting a gravity-defying ponytail, heels and not much more, and the pair posing with an enormous rope that I’m associating with the one that you were required to clamber up in grade school gym class. The couple (who together make a cool 32 million GBP for their work) certainly do justice to the unmentionables, and their perfect physiques make you want to hit the gym or perhaps move to an alternate airbrushed universe. What do you think of the new ad?
