  • Lanvin for H&M is happening! The men’s and women’s collections will hit over 200 stores worldwide on November 23. [WWD]
  • The women’s wear will be designed by Alber Elbaz, and the men’s wear will be designed by Lanvin‘s men’s creative director, Lucas Ossendrijver. The collections, which are said to include shoes and accessories, will be unveiled on November 2. Elbaz, who once said of mass-market collections, “You don’t want to be the stepsister. You want to be Cinderella. Show me one girl who wants to be the stepsister,” now says: “What intrigued me was the idea of H&M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public. I thought it was a smart concept so I say ‘I do.’ This has been an exceptional exercise, where two companies at opposite poles can work together because we share the same philosophy of bringing joy and beauty to men and women around the world.” You can see him on video, too.

I’m throwing my name in there, because I love to talk to people.” [NYPost]

  • Natalie Portman wore a beautiful red Rodarte dress to the Venice Film Festival premiere of Black Swan. But the dress, though very pretty, isn’t asymmetrical and vividly ombré, it has no leather straps or tendrils, and it does not appear to be bleeding — and frankly, what kind of Rodarte is that? []
  • The point of this article seems to be: Some people in San Francisco dress well, just like folks everywhere. [NYTimes]

  • Alexander Wang is rumored to be throwing an honest-to-God carnival, with rides and everything, for his after-party this season. Which we will naturally not be going to, because we are not cool like that. Last season, he closed down a gas station, hired Courtney Love to perform, and let his attendees raid the gas station’s convenience store. [Fashionologie]
  • Tim Gunn, in his new book, says of Anna Wintour, “It’s insane that people don’t call her out on the things she does. Is it fear? I was certainly afraid of her. When her office called me, I thought I’d have to go into the witness protection program.” He once saw the editor leave a fashion show by having her bodyguards carry her down six flights of stairs, rather than taking the lift or, um, walking. In fact, Gunn really lets it rip. On Alexis Stewart: “one of the angriest people I’ve ever met. [She] kept cursing under her breath in anticipation of her mother coming — ‘goddamn bitch,’ almost as if she had Tourette’s syndrome.” On Isaac Mizrahi: “A spoiled snob.” On his father, an FBI agent who worked under the notorious closeted spymaster J. Edgar Hoover: “You have to wonder about the identity of an individual who’s so blatantly homophobic.” Gunn also says he himself has been celibate for over 20 years. [NYDN]
