The campaign for Jefferson Hack’s third Tod’s No_Code capsule footwear collection is all about East London attitude. But his new short, Invocations, was shot during a Mexican escape. “I did this on my winter vacation…[to] provide an alternative point of view to the campaign,” the Dazed & Confused editor told Style.com. The Super 8 film stars a self-styled Tati Cotliar, who took aesthetic inspiration from Hack’s range of suede and leather kicks. “I think she was in a Diane Keaton-meets-Wes Anderson Boy Scout mood,” said Hack, noting that the Asymmetric Oxfords she’s wearing are among his favorite pieces in the range. “It’s really personal,” added Hack of the film. “It’s about travel (of course!) and this cool girl escaping [from] the heat of the city…to this place which is full of color and optimism and daydreaming.” Set to the music of Alfonso Lovo, a Nicaraguan guitar player from the sixties, the short, which debuts exclusively above, definitely emits a vintage oasis vibe—one that’s sure to speak to the No_Code man and woman, or, as Hack calls them, “stylishly minded mavericks.”
Awards season is officially upon us. The Golden Globes are set for Sunday, January 13 (check back for our coverage), and today the nominees for the BAFTAs were announced. Lincoln, Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, and Les Misérables racked up the most nods, and red-carpet favorites like Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Marion Cotillard, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, and Helen Mirren (who just received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame), as well as Javier Bardem, Ben Affleck, Hugh Jackman, and Daniel Day-Lewis, are all up for honors. We’ll have to wait until the ceremony, which will be held at London’s Royal Opera House on February 10, to see who wins and, of course, what everyone wears.

When Magdalena Frackowiak stepped onto Prada’s menswear runway earlier this week in a sporty headband, vintage-looking fur, and color-blocked trousers, we immediately visualized Margot and Richie from The Royal Tenenbaums. Even if, as Tim Blanks pointed out in his review, that reference “seemed a tad literal” for Miuccia, it got us thinking about other recent looks that fit director Wes Anderson’s distinctive country club-meets-seventies-rec room aesthetic. At Carven, Guillaume Henry whipped up preppy madras for the boys and tailored seersucker separates for the girls, while No. 21′s Alessandro Dell’Acqua mixed and matched stripes and florals with off-kilter panache. Stella McCartney stirred up her own mise-en-scène, putting on a carnival-themed Resort presentation with models lounging on hammocks in slouchy suits (pictured) that would make Anderson’s costume designer jealous.

Sarah Andelman’s pathbreaking Paris boutique Colette celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, and the fêtes are already well under way. The crowning bash will be an enormous carnival in the Tuileries, with booths and stalls by the store’s friends and vendors. But before that, Andelman turned to illustrator Craig Redman, creator of the cult-followed blog Darcel Disappoints, with whom she’s collaborated on everything from merchandise to Christmas cards over the years. (Style.com fans may remember Darcel as the hero of our Paris map in the first issue of Style.com/Print.) Redman set out to illustrate 150 of Colette’s fans and supporters, Darcel-ized. The exhibition, 150/15, opens today at the store and runs through March 31.
In honor of the event, we asked Andelman to select five of her favorites from the show. Click here to see her picks and her comments, or hit play above to watch a preview teaser Redman created. And if you do make it to Colette, keep an eye out for Style.com’s own Tim Blanks and Tommy Ton illustrated among the madding crowd.
150/15 runs through March 31 at Colette, 213 Rue Saint-Honoré, Paris, www.colette.fr.
Kiddie Cute With Wes Anderson And Lanvin, One Small Step For Bryanboy, One Giant Leap For Bloggers, And More…
There’s a new Wes Anderson movie in the offing. Focus Features is backing Moonrise Kingdom, the latest from the Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore director. The film, which will be shot this summer in Rhode Island, stars a pair of young unknown actors as a teenage couple that runs away to elope. In the supporting cast, some known actors: Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, and (fashion folk, hold your breath) Tilda Swinton. [Huffington Post via Gilt Manual]
Speaking of kids and cute (of the ultra-expensive variety): Lanvin is launching children’s clothing. It’s a return to form for the house: Founder Jeanne Lanvin spent part of her early career making pieces for mothers and daughters (a sketch of some of her children’s designs from 1929 is above).

Readers of The New York Times may have noticed something a little odd about a recent article on the Met gala—Oscar de la Renta was identified in a photo as Giorgio Armani. One of those confused readers? Oscar de la Renta. “What kind of trip was your photographer on?” Mr. de la Renta reportedly said when he called the Times. “It’s just fabulous for my ego. Whoever did it must have been on some kind of LSD I don’t know about.” (Side note: Does this suggest there’s a kind of LSD OdlR does know about?) [On the Runway]
And the next chapter in blogger world domination begins: Bryanboy announces he’s signed with power agency CAA. [Racked]
