A Very Global Christmas


It’s almost here! The cookies are frosted and the presents are under the tree. But before heading off for the holidays, I asked a few friends from fashion capitols around the world to say Merry Christmas in their native tongues. Here, designers (Jen Kao, Vika Gazinskaya, and Michelle Elie), bloggers (Susie Bubble and Garance Doré), stylist Giovanna Battaglia, and Barneys’ senior fashion director Tomoko Ogura, wish and our readers a happy holiday season. Feliz Natal e um próspero ano novo to everyone!

Turbans: A Wrapper’s Delight


Any way you wind it, turbans have been making fashion statements since Paul Poiret began topping off his creations with them way back in the early twentieth century (though Sikhs, of course, had been wearing them for centuries before that). Recall 1940′s film noir costumes à la Joan Crawford, the glory days of Yves Saint Laurent, Prada’s Spring 2007 show, and even Sex and the City 2. This summer, they’re making yet another return. On the street, It girls like Vika Gazinskaya and Margherita Missoni have adopted the look, and at his haute couture show last week, Jean Paul Gaultier took a bow in a turban similar to those he showed in his Resort collection. But perhaps credit for the current trend ultimately goes, as it so often does, to Karl Lagerfeld. The Chanel head honcho sent Baptiste Giabiconi down his pre-fall runway in Rajasthani jewels and a “murban.”

Giving New Meaning To The Term “Treasure Chest”


To bedazzle or not to bedazzle: That’s the question for Fall, with designers building bling directly into their clothes. Oscar de la Renta showed trompe l’oeil bijoux, printing photos of precious stones on his cocktail dresses, while Lanvin‘s Alber Elbaz and Miuccia Prada encrusted their respective looks with luxe crystals—some of which made their red-carpet debuts at this week’s Met gala. ANDAM nominee Vika Gazinskaya, for her part, gave the look a daytime spin with the novelty sweatshirt she sported in the Tuileries. The best part of these bedecked numbers? While still pricey, they’ll make a significantly smaller dent in your wallet than real-deal platinum and diamonds.

Illesteva’s Postcard From Moscow


Daniel Silberman and Jus Ske, the duo behind Illesteva eyewear, moonlight as DJs and dudes-about-town. They recently hit Moscow to spin at a summer party for former Pop editrix and current gallery doyenne Dasha Zhukova and check out her Garage Center for Contemporary Culture. Below, the duo sends back a few snaps from their travels.

We arrived in Moscow on Sunday afternoon. After checking in at our hotel, we went to say hello to our friends at Moscow’s leading boutique, Le Form, which introduced Russia to brands such as Margiela, Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester, and many more. We also checked out the new James Turrell exhibition at Dasha’s Garage Center for Contemporary Culture. It’s a truly amazing show and a must-see if you’re in Moscow. The entire art scene is really booming in the city right now. Later, our driver took us to Strelka on the river, which is Moscow’s best restaurant to watch the sunset—which, during the summer, happens at around 11 p.m. Our friends Anja, Anna, and Natalia were all in town for a shoot, so they joined us for dinner and drinks.

The next day, Jus Ske deejayed Dasha’s party at an estate in the suburbs of Moscow. She got what felt like the whole of Moscow there—including Olya Thompson, Vika Gazinskaya, Sanam Salek, Hunter Soik, and Natasha Goldenberg. The party went until 4 a.m.—and after that, why bother going to sleep? We went instead with our friends Hunter and Karolina to watch the sun rise in the Red Square.
