Fashion week’s 19-month imminent move to Lincoln Center has, unsurprisingly, proved polarizing. Zac Posen? For. Anna Sui? Against. What say you, Style Filers? Is the cultural cachet worth the schlep? [WWD]
It’s not exactly a secret that the fashion industry has a crush on the Obama presidency. Now, more than ten American designers have turned that adoration into what they do best: clothes and accessories. Sales of the official merchandise will help fund next week’s inaugural festivities. Zac Posen offers a cheeky take on formalwear, screening a bow tie and the inauguration date onto a charcoal tee. Diane von Furstenberg and Tory Burch both created eco-friendly canvas totes, while Alexander Wang went bold with a white scarf emblazoned with “CHANGE” in block letters. All items, which will be on sale through February, are priced under $70. They’re available online and at the Presidential Inaugural Store in Washington, D.C., at 625 E St., NW.
Stow that chunky necklace in your jewelry box. Bold earrings are the next, um, big thing (click for slideshow). On the Spring runways, they came in diamond barbell form at Jil Sander and in eighties retro plastic fan shapes at Proenza Schouler. Rachel Comey took a more-is-merrier approach, piling lobes with a mix of vintage-inspired clip-ons that she plans to sell in five-packs. Other designers played with scale. Zac Posen’s massive door-knockers grazed his models’ shoulders. Only Marc Jacobs’ over-the-top tribal-chic hoops for Louis Vuitton were bigger. If you’re going to part with some of your carefully hoarded cash come spring, it better be for something that makes a major statement.
