Hello-Hello, did everyone manage to rest and rejuvenate this weekend? We hope so, this first week in February can be ever-so-dreary.
We begin with a look at the new Narciso Rodriguez line to be sold on eBay. That is not a typo or our Newzheimers kicking in, the designer really is opening an eBay store.
Some may recall initial news about the line when we originally mentioned it in September of last year. The acclaimed designer is collaborating with eBay on a small collection, only eight pieces in total.
Women’s Wear Daily has an early look at the line:
“…more relaxed, accessible versions of the designer’s graphic classics, at considerably lower prices ($75 for a T-shirt; $350 for the reversible cotton coat).”
Here are a few more of George Chinsee’s photos from WWD’s story.
The Rodriguez eBay store is slated to open February 15.
We take a very quick look at a category we rarely venture into, ladies’ unmentionables. (Gasp!) Some experts believe the lingerie market is bouncing back along with many other retail sectors.
Above, Tommy Hilfiger’s cotton flannel sleepshirt and microfiber bra/undies for next fall, below, a DKNY sleepwear look for fall/winter.
The DKNY could easily be today’s Pretty in Pink.
This is the 3-D version with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter; some might say “Not your mother’s Alice.”
The marketing bonanza tied into the movie is well underway, today we have a glance at several pieces by designer Tom Binns, beginning with his Shattered Teacups necklace.
We found these images at High Snobette, the site has scads of photos from the line. Next, what we’re calling the “Off With Their Heads” necklace.
Below, an amazing charm bracelet by Mr. Binns.
The Los Angeles Times has more about the two lines Mr. Binns is doing:
“One is the six-piece, higher-priced, limited-edition Tom Binns for Walt Disney Signature collection (which will sell in the $1,000 to $2,000 range), and the other is a less expensive ($100 to $500) 35-piece Tom Binns for Disney Couture collection… Both are slated to roll out for spring 2010.”
The film opens March 5.
Another PIP (Pretty in Pink) to ponder, the first in a series of new ads from Saks Fifth Avenue.
The Chanel dress and pumps look just delightful; to see an entire behind the scenes album showing how the ad was shot, pop over and visit the Saks Facebook page. (If feeling neighborly, do say hello to TP as well!)
We close with one more Pretty in Pink item, the Handbag Charm from Tiffany.
Frequent readers may recall our attachment to charms, whatever their composition, and this one is no exception.
With that, we say adieu until next time!
