Our Favorite Looks From Fashion Week — So Far

New York Fashion Week is on, and designers are carting out their Fall/Winter 2012 Ready-to-Wear collections. We’re only on Day 2, but we thought we’d show you some of our fave looks from the collections so far. Check back for more fashion week updates here and tell us what you think of these designers’ looks in the comments!

“Well… it’s a little bit more complicated than that…but we agreed that it was probably best for everyone. It’s a great honor to be considered, and [head of Dior] Mr. Arnault is a super intelligent man and a very smart man and it was certainly a very great honour for him to know that I was capable – and not only capable but that I am someone that he would have wanted for the job. But I am very happy to be here. There is so much more left to do and building Louis Vuitton into a fashion company is something nobody else can say they really started.”

– We’d heard rumors for forever that Marc Jacobs was being heavily considered to take over John Galliano’s position at Christian Dior, but this is the first time that Jacobs directly addressed the situation. He’ll be staying with Louis Vuitton after all, which makes sense. It seems like Jacobs’ American sportswear sensibilities might not be the best fit for Dior. Jacobs is currently planning a retrospective of his work with Louis Vuitton at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs at the Louvre in March. [Telegraph]

In this clip from Vogue Italia, the mag imagines what might happen if QVC were to go really, really ridiculously upscale. The video is a companion piece to Vogue Italia’s January cover, shot by Stephen Meisel, and features models Joan Small, Karlie Kloss, Natasha Poly and Caroline Trentin decked in collections from Chanel, Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Versace, among others. This quirky little clip shows that high fashion might (gasp!) actually have a sense of humor. And oh, the clothes are absolutely stunning. [Vogue Italia]

Vivienne Westwood Isn’t Fond of Kate Middleton’s Style, Either

“I would have loved to have dressed Kate Middleton. But I have to wait until she kind of catches up a bit somewhere with style…I think she’s got a problem with eye make-up! The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none. … Let me put it this way. It seems to me, that her image is ‘ordinary woman.’ Therefore, high street shopper. And I just think she should be an extraordinary woman, wherever she gets her clothes from.”

–Punk designer Vivienne Westwood, on her disdain for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s style, or lack thereof. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

The Nicholas Kirkwood x Keith Haring Collaboration is Out!

Nicholas Kirkwood is a bonafide shoe genius. And Keith Haring revolutionized the art world in the ’80s and ’90s by helping to show that activism and art could meld into bright, beautiful creations. So when it was revealed that Kirkwood would be creating a collection of shoes in honor of Haring, well, we couldn’t wait to see them. Sadly, his knee-high rollerskate boots aren’t for sale — they’re only on display at the Arnhem Mode Biennale, but we could imagine trying to DIY our own pair of high-heeled wedges with some day-glo paint some time soon.

Frisky Q&A: Joe Zee Puts It “All On The Line”

If you’re not familiar with Joe Zee, you’re about to be. The much-loved creative director for Elle magazine, and one of the few voices of reason on MTV’s reality show, “The City” — where he had to contend with the likes of scheming socialite Olivia Palermo, ugh — Zee is heading back to television once again. He stars in the Sundance Channel’s new show “All On the Line,” where he’ll help young designers shape and sell their struggling lines. We spoke with Zee about the show, his creative vision, and what makes some designers succeed where others fail. Keep reading »
