Available by special order from Hermès.
My lovely and way-awesome fashion friend Zack Ashley, who has just moved to Paris from New York, took some pics at the Just Cavalli opening Tuesday evening on the rue du Faubourg St-Honoré. I love his description of the new boutique, which he calls “very fairy tale slash space ship”. Only in fashion! The opening was celeb-low but the after party warmed up with Kanye West, Dita von Teese, and current Cavalli poster boys Rock&Roll (who are also going to be playing a secret set tonight at the Truskel – shhhh!)

One of the biggest scoops of this week’s fashion week is all about who is DJing and for whom! It seems everyone wants to thrown in their musical two cents! Last night English designer Gareth Pugh was a surprise addition to a Richard Mortimer (of Boombox fame) party. This weekend will see French actress Joana Preiss promoting her new album and spinning at a Rock & Republic party at the Hôtel de Crillon. And Saturday night’s Colette/Self Service party at Le Lup will feature two very hush-hush guests: YSL designer Stefano Pilati and actress/designer Chloë Sevigny!! Get your groove on!!
John Galliano’s show at Dior yesterday afternoon was a swinging sixties trip to the Valley of the Dolls! Big-haired super-groomed Barbies walked the catwalk, oozing with high-octane glamour! Colours were bright magentas, turquoises, lemons, and limes; prints were psychedelic; and the exotic skins were totally drool-worthy!
Last night Cacharel founder Jean Bousquet invited fashion press to a cocktail to view the upcoming collection under new artistic directors Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto of Eley Kishimoto fame. I can’t think of a better partnership and I love the quirky universe they’ve already created!
Esteban Cortazar might be the new kid at Emanuel Ungaro, he’s amazingly only 24 years old, and he definitely has some large shoes to fill, but he’s obviously taking the attention in stride. Boxes of Jadis et Gourmande chocolates were dispatched yesterday morning to fashion editors worldwide with a note attached “Pressure? What pressure!!…” A sweet peek to his first show at Paris Fashion Week for Ungaro on February 27th!
