Target has commissioned limited-edition GO lines by Jovovich-Hawk, Gryson, Botkier, and Richard Chai. But today, the retailer announced it will keep the GO line going in between guest-designed lines, with collections designed in-house.
Last night the Supima cotton held a "white" party (à la Diddy) to celebrate today's opening of its Soho pop-up shop, which will feature clothes from AG Adriano Goldschmied, Three Dots, Zooey, and a bunch of other lovely designers. As we reported earlier, Supima will promote the store by setting up a "mock cotton field" on the corner of Broadway and Houston today and tomorrow, where they'll hand out real cotton branches to passersby. We had to know how, oh how, they came up with this idea.
Here’s a very early look at what to expect from H&M's tribute to Marimekko, which hits stores April 10. A brief summary: colors, colors, and more colors. Since it’s not a designer collaboration like Karl Lagerfeld or Roberto Cavalli, the price point is lower than you might expect. A one-piece swimsuit is $34.90, an apron dress is $49.90. The 50 piece collection also includes menswear: Bermuda shorts are $39.90, short-sleeved shirts are $29.90. On the whole, the collection packs enough vivid patterns and punchy colors to make dressing for even the stickiest New York afternoon feel a little more like preparing for a tropical vacation.
Check out the rest of the women's collection after the jump.
Hillary won Ohio and Texas, but the Marc Jacobs store on Bleecker Street isn't having any of it. After a rather unpleasant shopping trip revealed that the store's supply of Marc's famous Hillary T-shirts was limited to an inconvenient size large, a Jacobs rep has just informed us that the T-shirts are now, suddenly, a limited-edition affair:
With the Paris shows finally coming to a close, we had our spies — er, buyers — from Intermix and Bird send dispatches on their picks of the week. Sari Sloane, Intermix’s VP of fashion merchandising, loved Chloé's organza dresses and Stella McCartney's chunky knits.
Juicy Couture has big, bad plans to expand, starting with a new fragrance for men called Dirty English. The label's founders Gela Nash-Taylor and Pamela Skaist-Levy say the fragrance is a mixture of Anglomania, CZ Guest, and a "dash of attitude inspired by a 1976 review of a Sex Pistols concert." What man wouldn't want to smell like the British, a female beauty icon, and a smelly Sex Pistols concert?
Police are busy clearing out the fake merchandise from the 32 Chinatown shops that were shut down by the city yesterday; we snapped this photo on Canal Street this morning amid a gaggle of forlorn tourists. They came all this way from Iowa, and now look.
Supima Cotton is opening up a pop-up store in Soho on March 14, featuring pieces by fifteen contemporary designers like AG Adriano Goldschmied, Three Dots, Gilded Age, and Zooey. And what's a store opening, really, without a crazy promotional campaign? Before the store flings open its doors they plan to promote it with — we shit you not — a cotton field on the corner of Broadway and Houston.
One day only: Have a cocktail — do we have your attention? — while browsing the new Armani Jeans shop. Latino group the DEY entertains. Bloomingdale's, 1000 Third Ave., at 59th St. (212-705-2000); 6–8.
Polo Ralph Lauren Corporation is launching a line of clothing and home furnishings for J.C. Penney called American Living, marking the first time the company has created a brand for another retailer. But don't you fret — Ralph Lauren isn't, like, seriously giving himself to the down-market masses just like that.
It looks like That '70s Show's Danny Masterson isn't busy enough being a D.J., radio host, producer, and restaurateur — now he's looking to add boutique owner to his résumé. Teaming up with Ilaria Urbinati, former buyer for chic L.A. boutiques Milk and Satine, Masterson plans to open a shop called Confederacy, a high-end "mini–Fred Segal" in East Hollywood.
• Ass-electrocutionist Anne Slowey responds! The Elle editor commented on yesterday's post about her quest to flatten her posterior and boldly admits to merely imagining a phone call to her psychic. Or perhaps we misread? Whatever, the woman still electrocuted her tush. [Cut]
Cupid must have aimed his arrow directly at Barneys' publicity-loving rear — and we're shamelessly hot for it, which is why, hot on the heels of our warehouse-sale live blog, we're writing about the damn place again. Racked reports the chain is opening a store in the scary retail megaplex that is the meatpacking district.
