Chanel’s Little Black Jacket exhibit opens.
Le sigh. Thanks to the wonderful world wide web, news of the coolest fashion exhibits is at your fingertips but alas not always on your doorstep. Devastation at missing the McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit at the Met in New York last year still stings for most of us. The new must-visit exhibition is also in New York and since it’s the brain child of both Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, this is a compulsory trip, kids! The exhibit brings to life the book “The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld” and features a whole host of fashion favourites styled up by Ms Roitfeld and shot by Mr Lagerfeld. The likes of Jessica Pare, Joan Smalls, Crystal Renn and Pharrell Williams attended the opening. If you’re New York-based, the exhibit is on from 8th June to 15th June at 18 Wooster Street in Soho.
Is Gisele pregnant?
I usually hate the constant celebrity baby bump watch/pregnancy rumour mill but when it involved the impossibly beautiful pairing of Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady then I’m all ears! The gossip magazines have been scrutinising Gisele’s oversize tshirt outfits for weeks and apparently the couple were spreading the news at the Met Ball.
Paco Rabanne names new creative director.
Little over a month after the surprise departure of Manish Arora, Paco Rabanne have announced his successor – the little known Lydia Maurer. Though her name may not be well known, she has worked at both Yves Saint Laurent and Givenchy before joining Paco Rabanne in late 2011 as head of their studio. Maurer will show her first collection for SS13 in Paris in October – I can’t wait to see what she’s got.
Superga x House of Holland.
As a self-confessed high hell addict, there is very little that can tempt me into flats. A sprinkling of Henry Holland’s cheeky prints may well convince me though! Featuring a thick, creeper-like sole and pastel polka dots, leopard print and other signature prints.
Boys and girls at Gaultier’s couture show.
Jean Paul Gaultier has skipped his AW12 menswear show and will show menswear looks together with his AW12 couture show in July. It will take the form of a presentation but there has been no confirmation of the final format. His first ever couture show in 1997.
