Naomi Campbell’s Naomi 284 Clothing Line

Naomi Campbell launches her latest designer's fashion clothing line called Naomi 284. But as some people say, she chose (or was chosen by) Daslu, a Brazilian retailer to “fashion design” her own line titled Naomi 284, because she’s “not hot enough for the likes of Topshop or H&M”. She Launched her new clothing line at Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Anna Wintour

Anna Wintour had some competition at Arthur Ashe Stadium today; competition of the sartorial sort, that is. During Roger Federer’s winning match against Novak Djokovic, we spotted a woman in the stands joking with Jimmy Connors and wearing this look from Dries Van Noten’s Spring collection. 10% off with the coupon code CJ05

Erin Fetherston Spring 2009

Much has been written about the beauty of the Paris skies, and for Erin Fetherston they were a constant source of daydreams…until her relocation to New York this year. An "autobiographical" designer by her own admission, she used this transition—and, specifically, a comparison between the light of each city—as the basis for her Spring collection.

The theme played out delicately at first in a procession of relaxed, seventies-inspired sportswear (old photos of Lauren Hutton and Estée Lauder models had been part of the inspirational collage, too). Sequined flutter-sleeve blouses and linen trenchcoats shot through with metallic thread shimmered like sunlight across the Seine. Asymmetrical chiffon tops and jacquard bell-bottoms suggested she was pushing herself beyond the princess frocks she made her name with. But at last the dresses did emerge—unfortunately, as an all-too-literal look toward the heavens.

Siri Tollerød appeared to be essentially wearing a cloud, inner tube-like, around her waist; and a trio of tiered ball gowns with voluminous ruffles and an ombré sunset print could be difficult sells for even the most die-hard Fetherston-frock fans. Still, we'd wager that as they left the venue, Peaches Geldof and Emma Roberts were replaying the earlier part of the show in their minds and thinking about which pieces they'd most like to take home.

Fall 2008

It's hip to be peplumed this Fall. In reviving this dressmaker's conceit, so popular in the forties, designers shone a spotlight on the waist. Jackets, dresses, and skirts all benefited from this soft architecture, which carved natural womanly curves into newly stylish silhouettes at Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Lanvin, Prada, and Yves Saint Laurent.

The Fur Vest Takes Top Billing This Fall

Fur Coat
You can sing about autumn in New York and you can shop for it, but with temps topping 80 in Manhattan these days, it’s going to be difficult to work Fall’s heritage tweeds and midi lengths in Bryant Park. (We’re actually hoping the tents have AC—and plenty of it.) Nevertheless, the Fall item that’s giving us that warm and fuzzy feeling right now is the fur vest—worn neatly cinched at the waist (as at Dolce & Gabbana and Louis Vuitton) or nonchalantly open and long (as at Marni and Roksanda Ilincic). However you style it, you’re sure to come out on top.

Federer, WIlliams, and Sharapova at Nike Fetes

Williams and Federer
Extravagant and block party are words that rarely meet. But when Nike is footing the bill, the classic hot dogs-and-a-Slip 'N Slide formula gets thrown out the window. On Thursday night, the sportswear giant hosted a gi-normous plein air fête in front of its new Mercer Street boutique. It was a block party all right…on steroids. Mark Ronson, who lives above the new store, came out of self-imposed DJ retirement to man the turntables, spinning vintage tracks while chatting up downtown types like Nate Lowman and Tom Sachs. Spike Lee and Roger Federer did the ribbon-cutting honors, with a little help from the Brooklyn Steppers marching band. "Is Brooklyn in the house?" asked Lee. Apparently, the abundance of sullen hipsters quaffing Heinekens failed to tip him off.

There were, of course, hot dogs, courtesy of Nathan's. There was also stadium seating, jumbo screens showcasing artist-commissioned sports-themed videos, and a posse of furry mascots cavorting about. Serena Williams arrived with an entourage roughly the size of the aforementioned marching band. Apropos of her Olympic gold-medal doubles win, the tennis queen sported various gold accoutrements as well as gold toenail polish. "It was my stylist's idea, but I'll take the credit," she chuckled. Williams is in town to compete in next week's U.S. Open, but we were more interested in her Olympic Village experience. "Honestly? I felt totally fat," she confessed. "I was surrounded by people who looked freakishly perfect. I was like, 'OK, I'm not working hard enough. I've gotta go on a diet.' " Tennis stars…just like us.
