  • Daphne Guinness: “I mourn the demise of people walking down the streets with umbrellas and hats. Reality that reflects reality is a big fat mess. I like to experiment with different fabrics and see what happens. There’s one fabric I’ve been looking for for five years. It’s like an LCD screen, but it’s supple. You’d be able to play the movie Sunset Boulevard on your T-shirt. The military has the first option on it. I keep asking them, ‘Can’t you just give me a little bit?'” [WSJ]

  • Gisele says on her blog, “My intention in making a comment about the importance of breastfeeding has nothing to do with the law. Becoming a new mom has brought a lot of questions, I feel like I am in a constant search for answers on what might be the best for my child. I am sure if I would just be sitting talking about my experiences with other mothers, we would just be sharing opinions. I understand that everyone has their own experience and opinions and I am not here to judge. I believe that bringing a life into this world is the single most important thing a person can undertake, and it can also be the most challenging. I think as mothers we are all just trying our best.” [Hollywoodrag]

  • We were totally at this event and we didn’t even see Courtney Love (we were distracted by free booze and Russell Simmons), but boy did she have a mouthful to tell New York about her New York real estate situation. Lately she has been living at the Mercer, but she wants a place in the West Village: “I have been sitting at the hotel that has been my home for like a year now, with, like, four months off to rent a TriBeCa loft from the Portmans — Natalia Vodianova and Lord Portman have this loft in TriBeCa. But I thought we would trade up for a West Village house, because when I landed, I had enough money and financing for a house. And then, I got a lawsuit [Ed: Maybe this one?], and my assets got frozen. All my assets. And so because the Mercer staff are so great, and the owner, they let my family stay there for like, $200,000 worth of staying there. I mean, Über-crazy generous, and at a great rate, until the assets were unfrozen. So that was incredibly nice. And then the assets got unfrozen, and then Frances, like, ran away from home and did that crazy thing she’s doing. And now, I’m not looking at the same house.” [The Cut]

  • During a Cartier flash sale held on online luxury discounter HauteLook, Cartier says it bought five watches that were “second-hand” and some of which the brand described as “damaged.” (One shipped in a “damaged” box from the brand Baume & Mercier, which, like Cartier, is owned by Richemont.) So Cartier is suing HauteLook, which claims never to sell secondhand merchandise. If HauteLook owns the watches, can’t it sell them as it pleases? Scuffed Baume & Mercier box or no? [WWD]
  • A Parisian café called Sweat Shop comes enabled with industrial plainsewers, not wi-fi. Sounds like a great way to while away an afternoon, actually. [CBS]
