Givenchy Steps Off The Catwalk, Stella Steps Onto The Court, Designers Dress Up The Garment Center, And More…


Don’t look for Givenchy on the couture calendar this July—Riccardo Tisci will show his Couture collection for the house (shaved down to ten looks to accommodate customization) by private appointment. Apparently, the most devoted couture clients, royals that they are, couldn’t attend the shows for security reasons, anyway. Yeah, we know how that story goes. (For good measure, here’s one more glimpse at Spring 2010 couture, left.) [WWD]

Rumor has it that Scott Campbell, tattoo artist to the stars, has designed bags for next week’s Louis Vuitton menswear show. Since “to the stars” includes “to Marc Jacobs,” we’ve heard stranger allegations. [Elle]

We’re still curious to see Venus Williams’ new outfit at Wimbledon (she promises it’ll be divisive), but the tourney’s shaping up to be quite the fashion event: Stella McCartney will dress Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki in her Adidas duds. [Vogue U.K.]

New Yorkers, swing by the Garment District today for a glimpse of designers installing their Ralph Pucci-created mannequins for the Fashion Center Sidewalk Catwalk. Jason Wu, Rebecca Taylor, Betsey Johnson, and Tommy Hilfiger are among the designers who are pitching in. [WWD]

Anna Dello Russo—fashion peacock extraordinaire—collaborated with Yoox on a line of T-shirts of (what else) her own classic outfits. They sold out in less than 2 days. [Thread NY]

Ralph Lauren And Richard Branson Celebrate Wimbledon


The first sight that greeted us at Ralph Lauren’s annual Wimbledon party at London’s Kensington Roof Gardens was model David Gandy, i.e., the face of Dolce & Gabbana and owner of those abs. Gandy didn’t seem bothered about the news of Jesus Luz walking exclusively for Dolce: “We’re all cool. I have a long-term relationship with the company—and I am very loyal,” he grinned. “But I am doing other things, too. I’m going to be writing a monthly column on motoring for a new magazine called Fash-ism coming out next month.” Sounds like a must-read. Also in attendance were former Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland, royals like the Duchess of York and Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, and, of course, top seeds Ana Ivanovic and the Williams sisters. Serena Williams looked particularly stunning in gold harem pants from Ralph Lauren’s Spring collection—”aren’t these the coolest things you have seen?”—and a gold bangle stretched across her bicep. Sir Richard Branson hosted: “Listen, we have tennis, gardens, freezing weather, and strawberries and cream,” he said. “That pretty much sums up a perfect English summer party.”
