Rachel Zoe Luggage

Rachel Zoe's Luggage

  • Yesterday, celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe took to Twitter to show us just how overwhelming the travel process is for her. Holy hell. A gorgeous new baby boy, husband, and handfuls of clients to dress sure cause some baggage fees.

  • Supermodel entrepreneur Kate Moss has collaborated with French company ‘Fred’ to design a jewellery collection! The collection, for the LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy)-owned designer label, will include 22 exclusive pieces that have been inspired by her tattoos (there will be anchor, heart, star and crescent moon tattoo motifs).

    The collection will go on sale in Fred stores and online at Www.Fred.com starting October 1st. Prices will range from 350 euros to 35,000 euros (appropriate enough for a diamond and ruby encrusted scarf necklace!)

  • Rumours have been flying around that Raf Simons is taking over Yves Saint Laurent. It was started by the style editor of the International Herald Tribune online, Jessica Michault, who tweeted claiming that Suzy Menkes had confirmed it in a blog for the New York Times.

    It spread like wildfire, though no-one seemed to fact check the article which actually read:

    If Raf Simons ultimately takes over the helm at Yves Saint Laurent — as those familiar with the situation in Paris suggest — the designer will have found a sweet spot for his meticulous modernism.

    Although the designer was traveling back to his native Belgium and could not be reached for comment on the subject of YSL, he certainly has earned an audition for that position.

    It’s simply not happening. Stefano Pilati’s contract with YSL has already been renewed.

  • “I’m very much a cookie-cutter hipster. So, I feel a little bit bad about the fact that, essentially, I’m a hipster but I’m the only one that the rest of the world said, ‘Hey you’ve got really great style!’ But literally everyone in Williamsburg and East London has this. But you want to plunder this? Then that’s fine!” – Alexa Chung

  • Though it is four years in the making, Lauryn Hill is being sued for allegedly failing to return “an entire wardrobe of high fashion items” which were lent to her for a tour in 2007.

  • According to Page Six, Anna Wintour (editor of Vogue) has enlisted Mario Testino (super photographer) to entice Duchess Catherine (Mrs Kate Middleton) into shooting the cover of Vogue. Since Testino shot the infamously beautiful official engagement photos of Will and Kate, and attended the royal wedding as a friend of the family, this is a pretty good move from the Devil Wearing Prada. A source said:

    “Every magazine has been trying to get Kate, and many assume it will eventually be Vogue. But even with the Mario Testino relationship, it is not clear when this will happen. The Palace must approve it, and they are very protective of Kate.”

  • Model Lindsey Wixson fell at Versace, and The Daily Mail were kind enough to rehash old ‘runway falls in celebration.
  • Burberry Prorsum SS12
    Award for the most tech-savvy show of Spring/Summer 2012? Unless someone in Milan or Paris pulls out a teleporation device, it’s going to have to be Burberry. Not only were my favourite Fashion Week travellers in attendance (Kanye West, Sienna Miller, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Anna Wintour, Olivier Theyskens, Rachel Zoe, and Mario Testino), but the rest of the internet seemed to be in attendance too. There was a Tweetwalk, live stream, and instant online shopability for the collection (though the pre-orders won’t be mailed for six months). An excellently digital production.

    And then there were the clothes. In reflect, it looks like designer Christopher Bailey was heavily influenced by London’s non-existent summers, as it was the darkest colour palette of the entire week and had a gorgeous abundance of plum and teal trenchcoats that were styled with incredibly detailed, wide belts. Patterns were large, rustic, and that tribal trend definitely found it’s way in.

    The key anchor to this collection? Time. Time spent on constructing basket-woven sleeves, raffia hoods and beaded collars. Time spent on perfecting the ideals around pattern-complimentary wedges and oversized handbags. Time that equals justified pricepoint. View Post

    Rachel Zoe SS12
    As a fashion stylist, there is some sort of unspoken rule that expects me to slate celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe. But…whatever…I love her. Writing about her Spring/Summer 2012 line was a given, and I am overly impressed with the consistency and transitional nature of her clothing line. In the words of my beloved Anna Dello Russo, “It’s really, like, L.A. — an L.A. collection but done in an international way.”

    This season, Zoe was inspired by many things including Brigitte Bardot, the late sixties, early seventies, running around the south of France, and a nonchalant attitude that was reflected in her uncharacteristic showing of Springtime ballet flats.

    Mixing stark white looks with mis-matched prints kept well-designed pieces effortlessly glam. Everyone loved it. The line to actually view the collection wrapped around 39th St to Broadway, even though the presentation was invitation only. This woman has a magic touch. View Post

    Rachel Zoe Baby
    Everyones favourite fashion stylist, Rachel Zoe, and husband Rodger Berman have just released a statement to welcome their brand new baby boy to the world outside of womb! The reality tv-famous couple have named their 20-inch long, 6 pound, 12 ounce baby boy Skyler Morrison Berman. What a stylish Skyler he will be.

    The statement read:

    “Mom and Dad ‘LITERALLY’ could not be happier or more in love with their son!”

    Rachel Zoe
    Seven months-pregnant stylist Rachel Zoe has passed another flight on her stairway to heaven. Her much-awaited contemporary collection for Fall/Winter 2011 was somewhat-secretly previewed yesterday. In addition to her under-$200 line for QVC, Zoe’s new line – on which she partnered with Fung & Li – considers their rivals to be Alexander Wang and Diane von Furstenberg.
    Rachel Zoe Stole Design
    Unfortunately, we’ve spotted a slight uh oh in the designs. In 2007, Zoe styled a fashion story for Teen Vogue that…well…featured an identical dress. While white-and-black sequins can easily be imitated without design fraud, an exact pattern is much harder to replicate without questions being raised. I believe Rachel also wore the original design to the Marc Jacobs after-party that following Fashion Week. No comment from my beloved Zoe Camp just yet. I die. View Post
