Rumor has it that Linda Evangelista (left) has split with her current beau, Hard Rock Café founder Peter Morton. Apparently she wanted to spend too much time in Canada, he preferred L.A.—ah, yes, that old bicoastal breakup story. [Page Six]
The Times dispatches a reporter to the holy grail of designer knockoffs: The giant flagship Zara in Madrid, where the intrepid correspondent finds a treasure trove of imitation Celine. The Prado can wait! [NYT]
Don’t look too closely at the Raquel Zimmermann add for Chloe’s new fragrance, Love, Chloe. In an oversight that’s proven slightly embarrassing for all involved, Inez and Vinoodh shot Zimmermann in a full Chloe look—and a YSL belt. Whoops. [WWD]
And it’s opening day for the newest addition to the Barneys Co-Op family. The retailer—which recently celebrated its 25th birthday—opens its doors in Brooklyn this morning. [Racked]
Every season, Stefano Pilati extends the YSL vision by sending it out farther than the end of the runway. With his Manifesto, the Saint Laurent look gets all the way to the street. Starting this Tuesday, September 14, the Manifesto—an extended lookbook starring Daria Werbowy packaged in a Pilati-designed bag (below)—hits the streets of New York, where they’ll be distributed to 2,000 passersby. (Following that, they’ll hit Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and for the first time, Beirut, on September 18.) Inez and Vinoodh shot both the lookbook and the accompanying teaser video, debuting exclusively on Style.com. If you’ve ever wanted to watch Daria slowly descend some stairs (and, hey, who hasn’t?), today’s your lucky day. The short has a hypnotic, trippy elegance—think Last Year in Marienbad with faster costume changes.
Stay far, far away: The Soho Hollister store is infested with bedbugs. The store is closed while the label attempts to de-louse (or, we guess, de-bedbug-ify). [Huffington Post]
The reign of the supes continues: Inez and Vinoodh shot Daria Werbowy for YSL’s Fall ’10 campaign. [Fashionologie]
It’s been speculated about for months, but Naomi Campbell (and, for the record, Mia Farrow) will be called to testify at the war crimes trial of Liberia’s Charles Taylor, who allegedly gave Campbell a large diamond. [WSJ]
The latest It bag—the mochila, the traditional satchel created by the Wayuu tribeswomen of Colombia and Venezuela? They’re coming to Barneys, they’ve already sold out of J.Crew, and Proenza Schouler’s doing PS1′s in mochila fabrics for pre-fall. So, in a word—yes. [NYT]
And this, apparently, is Carine Roitfeld’s home. Now you know. [Oak via Racked]
YSL-philes may be lamenting that the new Chyc won’t arrive in time for fashion week, but here’s your first look at a bag that will: It’s Stefano Pilati’s tote for the sixth YSL Manifesto, which arrives in New York next Tuesday, February 16. Two thousand of them will be handed out—free of charge—in New York, followed by similar drops in Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and, for the first time, Berlin. The newspaper-sized Manifesto inside has all the Inez and Vinoodh shots of Natalia Vodianova in the Spring 2010 collection, but we’re just as into the pixelated, strawberry-printed bag itself. Expect to see more than a few, crammed with invites, bottled water, and all the other fashion week sundries, on your trips from Milk to the tents.

AnOther Fashion Book, a greatest hits compilation of the fashion photography that has been featured in AnOther Magazine and AnOther Man over the past eight years, makes its stateside debut today—and we have Karl Lagerfeld to thank for it. Well, not entirely. “It was actually Karl who came up with the idea of doing a book,” explains AnOther founder and editor in chief Jefferson Hack, who edited the collection. “I was at the atelier in Rue Cambon, and he said to me, you know, you have this amazing archive, you should compile something that can be available and accessible to people as a resource. And,” Hack adds, “he said he’d publish it.” Needless to say, that was a pitch Hack was eager to run with. The first in a series of three book to be published by Lagerfeld’s imprint 7L and distributed via Steidl, AnOther Fashion Book features work by photographers such as Terry Richardson, Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, and Nick Knight. A book of portraits from the magazines will follow this fall, and a collection of AnOther and AnOther Man interviews will round out the trilogy next year. Here, Hack talks to Style.com about stripping out, slowing down, hanging Kate Moss, and dancing.
One of the things that intrigues me about this book is that you’ve let the images stand on their own. There’s no layout, no dates, no captions—no suggestion, really, that they were ever published in a magazine.
That was one of the first decisions we made when we began working on the book—to strip the magazine element out. This isn’t a book about AnOther Magazine. It’s a book about photography, and we wanted it to feel timeless. So we’ve taken the most stirring images and laid them out simply and created a running order that’s non-chronological, nonlinear. And not even entire spreads, often—just selections. My hope is that people who have never seen a copy of AnOther will come to this book and find it compelling.
