Rodarte for Target Has Already Hit eBay

by Amy Odell on September 9th, 2009

Rodarte’s Target collection doesn’t hit stores until December 20, but Target already hosted an editor’s preview of the line. When images from that event leaked on Twitter, Target — which doesn’t enjoy when images are leaked before they decide to release them — swiftly got them taken down from there and numerous blogs that had picked them up. But try as they might, they can’t control the Internet, or the naughty editors who attended the preview, because one attendee recently put a lace blouse from the collection up for sale on eBay. According to the description, it was a gift from the event. The item only received two bids, and closed at $10.49, though you’d think it would go for an astronomical sum like past diffusion-line items to hit the site did. (The full collection ranges from $9.99 for knee-highs to $79.99 for a leopard-print jacket, so it really should have gone for more, regardless.) Even though the auction’s over, it at least provides another tiny glimpse at the line.

Narciso Rodriguez in Talks to Do eBay Collection

by Amy Odell on September 9th, 2009

Anyone who’s anyone in fashion has a lower-priced line these days. Doo.Ri, Thom Browne, Thakoon, Comme des Garçons, and rag & bone, to name a few. Jil Sander now designs for Uniqlo. Anna Sui’s Target collection launches in mere hours. Jimmy Choo’s H&M line launches in November. Rodarte is also doing a Target line to launch later this year. Lower-priced clothing is like the Noah’s Ark of fashion, saving designers from the flood of premature discounts and unemployment contributing to depleted disposable incomes. The next to board will probably be Narciso Rodriguez, who is in talks with eBay to do an eight-piece collection with prices ranging from $75 to $350. Rodriguez says the partnership would bring his work to a wider audience. Though eBay is routinely sued by fashion companies for making counterfeit pieces available to the public, Narciso is happy to use the auction site for a lower-priced line since they have a ton of money and can pay him on time, unlike the many designer boutiques struggling to pay for orders in the downturn. Though it’s pretty difficult to imagine Narciso pieces for sale under the campy rainbow eBay logo.

For those of you who follow all things and everything fashion related you might already know that our friends over at Who What Wear have recently launched a book. If you haven’t heard about it yet, I’m happy to share some fun information with you about the book.

Who What Wear Book

As you can imagine, the book is filled with just about anything you might want or need to know about what’s fashionable these days.

Using both celebrity and runway examples, the book offers its readers the tools needed to update their personal style, not matter what it might be. There are even helpful hints from celebrity contributors like Nicole Richie and Rachel Bilson. Order it through Barnes and Nobel online for only $15.16!

Bird Handbags One Night Stand

by Megs Mahoney Dusil on September 9th, 2009

We first brought you news of Bird Handbags over two years ago. The ritzy hippie vibe appealed to many and we were digging the designs. The Lady was a favorite (I still wear my Lady often) and the One Night Stand Clutch followed closely behind.

Net A Porter is carrying another version of the Bird Handbags One Night Stand with a natural colored snakeskin body and brown ostrich double handles.

Bird Handbags One Night Stand

The clutch is chunky and large, grabbing your attention from the first look. The price of handbags from Bird Handbags seems extraordinarily high. While this clutch is oversized, the price nears $2k for a mostly python clutch. For this price, I will be setting my sights on a larger everyday bag rather than a large clutch. This is a design that is perfect for the gals that dress very LA; casual, laid back, but chic. But the price will hold me and I am sure many others back. Buy through Net A Porter for $1810.

McKinsey Consultants Likely to Advise Condé Nast to Cut Back on Photo Shoots

by Amy Odell on September 9th, 2009


Grace Coddington on a photo shoot in The September Issue.

The New York Observer reports McKinsey consultants are preparing to exit Condé Nast and could submit their final recommendations to Si Newhouse as early as September 16, the second-to-last day of New York Fashion Week. They are likely to recommend that magazines like Gourmet and Bon Appétit publish fewer issues a year. From what the Observer writes, it also sounds like they’re questioning why Details even exists, since it’s basically the same thing as GQ but with cover typeset that looks stuck in the seventies and more space between lines of text inside the magazine.

In The September Issue, Anna Wintour has no problem killing photo shoots that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. But McKinsey consultants will likely recommend Condé Nast not spend that much to begin with.

“There are little ways of cutting,” said one staffer, who drank a bit of the McKinsey Kool-Aid. “You don’t need to send an entire posse to Joshua Tree for a shot in the desert! Who cares! If the photographer is good, and the clothes are good, the models are good, it’s fine — you can shoot downtown.”

We’d argue downtown is not a suitable substitute for a desert landscape, when, say, you want to do something amazing-looking like this, but a lot of that scenery can be Photoshopped nowadays. Maybe they should pay retouchers to do that instead of cleaning up bony kneecaps and elbows.

Yet despite the downsizing, it sounds like Condé Nasties are enjoying their new consulting friends. Because, as one anonymous staffer put it, “They’re kind of hot.” (It’s true — we’ve experienced sexy consultants in a non-work setting.) Also, young and plucky! The Teen Vogue girls are reportedly coming to work in their good outfits on a daily basis. Because you know, it’s not often a flock of straight, wealthy, put-together young men with good salaries hang out at fashion-magazine offices. And Fashion Meets Finance events only occur a few times a year at best.
