Now on his second season designing for Japan’s pearl-centric Tasaki jewelry line, Thakoon is coming into his own. His new collection for Fall ’10 keeps the pearls front and center, but adds vintage details like bangle clasps inspired by an antique door lock, and, for a series of gold and pearl necklaces, tiny padlocks shut up with attached keys. Count among its fans Inez and Vinoodh, who shot the new pieces—which, with their pale, simple chic, would look great with Thakoon’s own Spring ’11 collection—on Dree Hemingway, above. They’re not the only ones. Buyers are responding, too. The collection will now be available in the U.S. in addition to Japan, at Bergdorf Goodman, The Webster, and Forty Five Ten.
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.
