A Grace Kelly…Pen? Also, Edgy Prep Styles & A Cute Kitty

Hello-Hello, happy middle of the week, we are having a splendid early fall day, hopefully you are enjoying the same.

We begin today with a look at a new “Grace Kelly Collection,” this one from luxury pen purveyors Montblanc. The new line was launched earlier this month at a gala in Monaco.

Below we show one of Princess Grace’s daughters, Princess Caroline, with Princess Charlene as they look at pieces from the collection at the party.

Also on hand at the gala, loads of celebrities, including Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl as well as actress Daryl Hannah.

Montblanc donated $1 million to the Princess Grace Foundation as part of its arrangement to use the late Princess’s name and likeness, the Foundation helps support young musicians, actors, designers and dancers.

The collection includes a watch with hundreds of diamonds.

As well as a necklace, if looking for this in your Christmas stocking it will set your savings account back a bit, $226,100 if you would like to hang it about your neck. (We admit to liking the pink sapphires, we have those in our engagement ring and wedding band.)

Of course there are writing instruments,below we show one of the pens, a limited edition of 29 have been created.

Full disclosure: The Consort has carried the same Montblanc pen since 1972. However, there are not any diamonds on it, nor will there be.

Prince Albert and Princess Charlene will actually make their first official visit to the US in November on behalf of the Foundation, they will officially award scholarship recipients.

Next today, a fast glance at a label we previously hadn’t been aware of, Sandro.

Sandro Fall 2011

The Parisian company is opening its first US stores next month and we thought we would share a few styles from its fall collection.

Definitely not what we think of as classic preppy style, much more along the lines of what we call edgier prep, the styles offer strong, clean lines.

Sandro is not carried at a broad variety of outlets, two standalone stores (womenswear and menswear) will open on Bleecker St. in October, an ecommerce site also will open this fall, in November.  The company plans to open several more stores in the US. Right now a very few Bloomingdale’s offer Sandro, you can also find a limited selection at Net-a-Porter.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Also today, having established our inexplicable adoration of all things fondness for Hello Kitty we wanted to bring you up to speed on two additional collaborations. Previously we wrote about the partnership with Liberty London on a makeup collection, now more products featuring the cute kitty are available at the venerable retailer, including some of the label’s famous fabric line.

Hello Kitty has also partnered with retailer Forever 21. (You know, the place yours truly is afraid to enter, for fear there will be a booming announcement over the loudspeaker “Attention eviction crew, we have an unhip older woman on aisle five, please remove her immediately!”)

The collection launches November 21,

Some of the styles look darling for the younger set, we can see the sweaters on any number of young ladies we know.

In keeping with Forever 21’s pricing policy all pieces will be priced at less than $30.

With that we say goodbye until next time!

A New Line We Love & Gwyneth Paltrow “Tries to Join the 21st Century”

Hello-Hello, welcome to a bright and lovely Thursday, we hope your day is also filled with sunshine.

Today we look at a talented new designer, Katie Ermilio.

Katie Ermilio

We learned about the young lady and her creations via a post over at T Magazine (the NY Times‘ style magazine).

Courtesy Photos via The Moment

Below we see the designer in some of her own creations.

Courtesy Photo via Young Sophisticates

The piece is titled “The Vogue Intern/Katie Ermilio,” and Ms. Ermilio did in fact intern at Vogue, but her design pedigree reaches back generations. She grew up on the Main Line in Philadelphia, her grandfather Arthur was Grace Kelly’s personal clothier, and her father runs Ermilio Clothier & Specialty Shop, considered the preeminent equestrian tailoring shop in the country. Below we see Robert Ermilio, who is probably a bit busy this week, we are in the middle of the Devon Horse Show.

Via Main Line Today

At any rate, many of the styles are lovely, in rich hues and clean, unfussy lines. Of course we selected designs to show that are Pretty in Pink, but the group offers pieces in a broad palette.

Courtesy Kate Ermilio

This marks Ms. Ermilio’s first foray into a full-scale collection, the line will be available nationally at Shopbop. More on the designer from the T post:

““To make extra money, I would put my dresses in my dad’s storefront and they started to sell,” she says. Ermilio designs with a classically tailored Gossip Girl in mind. Her fall 2011 debut, featured double-breasted velvet blazers, wide wool-satin trousers and flirty chiffon tees paired with big swing skirts.”

For those interested in learning more, click here for Chelsea Zalopany’s full post. To see the entire fall preview, click here to visit the Katie Ermilio site.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Next, happy news for those social networkers fond of über-prep Gwyneth Paltrow: the actress is now Tweeting.

Via Twitter

And she has also launched a Facebook page:

Facebook

In her first Tweet and first FB post Ms. Paltrow shares a link that takes you to a brief video in which she explains she is “trying to join the 21st Century…,” joining Facebook and Twitter. In today’s posts (shared on both sites, it seems she will be replicating the content) she shows the kids (from the back) at a ‘super-secret Cold Play’ rehearsal.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Two tidbits:

1) Look for a new line from Tommy Hilfiger, “Tommy Girl” is slated to debut in the Juniors departments at 150 Macy’s stores this July. WWD reports the new collection is aimed at 12- to 18-year-olds, and prices will run “from $32 for t-shirts to $129 for outerwear”.  We’re thinking we should really refer to the designer as “omni-Tommy,” media coverage of his various enterprises and the ‘rebirth’ of his core lines are everywhere, look for a post  on the topic in the not-too-distant-future.

2) Tiffany has launched another website, What Makes Love True.

Tiffany

The micro-site opens with a short film, Will You Marry Me?, showcasing different stories about marriage proposals. There are four segments on the site, “Love Stories,” “Tiffany’s New York,”something of a cultural guide to the city, “Love Is Everywhere,” an interactive map, and our favorite portion, “The Art of Romance,” with playlists of romantic songs and movies.

On that romantic image we say goodbye until next time!

Signs of Panic for Monaco Wedding? A “Preppy Revival” & Kate Middleton’s Prep Look (Again)

Hello-Hello, and happy Monday.

There is an abundance of news to share, we begin with a story about the upcoming wedding of Monaco’s Prince Albert to Charlene Wittstock, seen below heading into Westminster Abbey for the marriage of Kate Middleton and Prince William.

Chris Jackson/Getty Image

The Sunday Times (London) carried a story titled “Alarm Bells Ring for Albert’s Wedding”.

With only two months to go before the 53-year-old Albert exchanges vows with Charlene Wittstock, a former Olympic swimmer from South Africa, invitations have yet to be sent out. “Albert and Charlene” wedding memorabilia is not yet ready. Nor is the commemorative postage stamp or a “Princess Charlene” rose that was supposed to have been created by now.”

With all due respect to the Principality, the lack of a commemorative stamp or hybrid floral component hardly seems catastrophic.  However, one would think those invitations need to get in the mail fairly soon. And there are other issues we hadn’t thought about. Back to Matthew Campbell’s article:

“Another worry is that Albert could end up being embarrassed by the mothers of his illegitimate children.”
Perhaps the most glaring part of that sentence was “mothers,” as in plural? Multiple offspring? Recognizing much of the world finds the American perspective on monogamy and children born out-of-wedlock to be provincial, we remain convinced Albert’s mother, Princess Grace would not be thrilled at the situation.  More on the offspring from Mr. Campbell:

“Nicole Coste, a former Togolese air hostess and mother of Alexandre, 7, has a record of turning up uninvited at Monaco’s red carpet events and is said to have been signed up by German media to give an account of Albert’s big day.

It is not known whether Albert’s 19-year-old Californian daughter, Jazmin, and her mother are on the guest list. They may turn up anyway, furious at the rejection.”

Below we see the couple awarding Rafael Nadal the winner’s cup at last month’s Monte Carlo Masters tournament.

Claude Paris/AP Photo

The event does sound as though it has the potential to get a bit off the track (understatement of the week), at the very least an interesting case study for those studying such things. One last portion of the story:

“Displaying signs of panic, the palace protocol chief in charge of the wedding has sent for reinforcements, hiring two experienced French wedding planners. It is hoped, at least, that the date, time and venues of festivities will not be subject to further changes…”

To read the entire story click here to visit a forum with the entire post (the Times is available by subscription only). There is an official wedding website for the media.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Several stories referencing the prep aesthetic have surfaced in the last several days, below we share part of a story from Savannah Now, sister site to the Savannah Morning News.  From an “An Ode to Mommy Fashion“:

“There is also the preppy mom of uniformed preparatory school children. Her uniform is collared shirts and conservative solids and plaids.

Old-school brands like Brooks Brothers, Lilly Pulitzer and Ralph Lauren are returning this preppy look to popularity. Does your mom delight in her latest look from Lilly? Does she casually toss her sweater over her shoulders while watching your tennis match? Yes, preppy mom is back!”

The piece is illustrated with a vintage Time magazine cover.

Time Inc. via Savannah Now

If that doesn’t evoke wistful thoughts of another time, a more civil and genteel time, I don’t know what will.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Next, a story looking at “The Preppy Revival in Fashion

“It’s been patronised by icons from Grace Kelly and Jackie Onassis to Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow but, give or take the odd overnight fad (the choppy “Rachel” haircut in the 1990s for example), it’s never dominated fashion.

Now it appears that Alexa Chung’s white cuffs were the tip of the iceberg. The global preppy movement currently bubbling under the fashion radar is not going to be merely a “revival”.

Writer Julia Robson’s story ran in The National (UAE), offering an international perspective.

“New preppy, though, is more glamorous and distances itself from campus and vintage looks. Think everyone’s new favourite fashionista Kate Middleton – who never looks anything but exquisite in her pared-down, impeccably ironed clothes – and you are good to go.

New preppy isn’t about Charlotte Olympia clunky platforms or Hervé Leger cleavage dresses. It’s classic Burberry raincoats, neatly pressed cream silk blouses and dainty hats all the way. It involves quality labels, conservative styles, not wearing too much make-up or tampering with natural hair colour (though brunette home hair-dye is seeing off its rival, blonde).”

Ms. Robson wisely distinguishes between classics and fads.

“Amazingly, by preserving… fundamental preppy stalwarts such as classic raincoats, brands like Ralph Lauren and Burberry look fresher than ever. The fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger is particularly enjoying a fashion “moment”.

Not surprisingly, Prep World, Mr. Hilfiger’s collaborative collection with Lisa Birnbach, is mentioned, as is the quirky “Meet the Hilfigers” campaign.

Craig McDean via Design Scene

Click here for the entire story, it makes for a good read.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Speaking of Mr.Hilfiger, add his name to the list of designers who would like to dress Kate Middleton the Duchess of Cambridge.  From Vogue UK:

“”Catherine has a very classic yet modern style,” Hilfiger told us. “I would love to dress her and I think she already has the makings of the perfect preppy!”

That list of designers is lengthy indeed.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

We leave you with a few images from the weekend’s events.

Mornings at a racetrack are indescribable, stripped of the frou-frou accompanying the actual race. This is especially so at marquee events.

Of Weekends and Wedding Gowns

Hello-Hello and welcome to an almost-here-weekend!

Today we have a lengthy commitment away from the Prepatorium of the volunteering kind, so the post is brief and focused on one topic.  As everyone is no doubt aware (how could you not be with the insane levels of media attention dedicated to the matter), there are nuptials of note this weekend; we planned (and still plan) little coverage of the event, other than what we have done with other notable weddings, a possible look at the fashions sported by guests and the bride’s gown. We do adore looking at pretty gowns and party frocks.

We *have* been surprised at the number of inquiries we are receiving about dresses worn by other high-profile brides, in particular the number of questions about Caroline Kennedy’s dress. (More about that in a moment) To answer those questions we have decided to look at styles worn by some of these more notable brides, beginning with Jacqueline Bouvier, upon the occasion of her marriage to then Senator John F. Kennedy.

Via BrideChic

The ivory silk taffeta dress took two months to make, requiring more than 50 yards of silk.

JFK Library

More on the gown from the JFK Library:

“It was the creation of Ann Lowe, an African-American dress-maker born in Grayton, Alabama, who had designed gowns for the matrons of high society families including the du Pont, Lodge, and Auchincloss families. Ms. Lowe was 54 when she designed the Bouvier wedding dress, which featured a portrait neckline and bouffant skirt decorated with interwoven bands of tucking and tiny wax flowers.”

Tricia Nixon was married while her father was president, so that event was a White House wedding. Her gown was by Priscilla of Boston, an establishment visited by yours truly when seeking a dress.

Life Magazine

Another President’s daughter wearing Priscilla?

Luci Johnson and Patrick Nugent are seen as they leave the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception; Luci’s sister Lynda, accompanied by the groom’s father, Gerard Nugent, holds the bridal gown train.

Style icon Grace Kelly’s wedding dress featured (among other things) exquisite lace, yards and yards of it.

The vision and designed for the gown came from MGM costume designer Helen Rose, it was actually made by the wardrobe department of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

Philadelphia Museum of Art

The dress included rose point lace over silk faille and silk tulle, with seed pearls.

Another famous actress wearing a gown by Ms. Rose? Elizabeth Taylor, for her marriage to Nicky Hilton.

Princess Diana’s gown was immense.

The train alone was 25 feet in length.

There was a lot going on with this dress: the ruffled silk taffeta and lace gown also had enormous puffed sleeves, and decorated with hand embroidery and sequins. The gown was designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel.

The royal wedding most recently featured in this space was that of Sweden’s Princess Victoria in June.

Torsten Laursen/Getty

This gown was created by Swedish designer Pär Engsheden, and made of pearl white silk duchesse. (Click here for our “Gowns and Crowns” post with oodles of pictures.)

The next royal wedding on most fashionista’s radar? That of Monaco’s Prince Albert II to South African swimming star and style-setter Charlene Wittstock, seen below attending the Swedish royal wedding mentioned above.

Pascal le Segretain/Getty

We close with our favorite gown, that worn by Caroline Kennedy for her wedding to Edwin Schlossberg.

The gown was a Carolina Herrera design in white silk organza, with a rounded neck, short sleeves, and a twenty-five-foot train.  Note the bodice of the gown, appliqued with embroidered white shamrocks.

Why is it our favorite? Why are the shamrocks of interest?  Well, loath as we are to talk about anything personal (honestly, what could be more tedious?), we will share that someone you know (in a cyber sense of the word) wore the same dress for her marriage to the most wonderful man in the galaxy, the Consort.

As soon as we saw the dress we knew it was The One, and sliding it on confirmed our first instinct.  We had only one dilemma. You see, the gown did not originally come with shamrocks, those were created specially for Ms. Kennedy.  In our case the debate was a bit more challenging: shamrocks to honor the bride’s heritage, or tulips, in honor of the groom’s background?

Ultimately we opted for neither, going with the gown’s original floral embellishment, a daisy. And thus, “The Daisy Dress” was named, that moniker remains what we call The Dress to this day.

On that blissful note we thank you for popping in, and hope everyone’s weekend is simply delightful!

An Anti-Prep Does Scrapbooking. Also, Mad Men Clothing For Our Very Own?

G’day everyone, we hope it is going swimmingly wherever you may be.

We are very excited here in the Corner Condo at Princess InterGalactic HQ: we spoke with the Lilly Pulitzer Stationery folks yesterday and everything is on track for them to ship our order this coming Monday! That means we will have things in house by Thursday or Friday – we can start shipping to you by the end of next week!  Whoo-hoo!

Because of that good news and because the Princess Consort has been working amazing hours to get some of the Lilly on the site, we thought we’d share a few more items. We start with the Beverage Napkins with Fun Sayings:

Lilly Pulitzer at PreppyPrincess.com

Lilly Pulitzer at PreppyPrincess.com

The Lilly words of wisdom include “Only count the happy hours,” a philosophy we can live by, and at $5 for a package of 20 napkins, a price we can smile at!

Frenzied parents can appreciate the wisdom of having Lilly’s My Activity Book on hand for little ones:

Lilly P

Lilly Pulitzer Activity Book at PreppyPrincess.com

These have 65 pages of activity sheets, stickers, 8 non-toxic jumbo sharpened pencils and an elastic closure.  The books will be $18, and they look just perfect for keeping the Young Miss and Master of your household entertained.

A reminder these items and some of our other Lilly merchandise is up on the Princess website for pre-ordering.  With everything shipping Monday (Feb. 1st) we expect our first shipment here by the 4th or 5th. Pre-ordering means your order gets out the door first when the Lilly merchandise arrives here. Pre-orders are at the top of the list and will be turned around on the same day we receive the merchandise from Lilly.

On to our quasi-prep news headling, beginning with a story that was really quite a shock to the system: Word that the original Anti-Prep, Paris Hilton, is going into scrapbooking.

Ben Tsui/Splash News

Paris Hilton, the Creativity Collection™ is described as “a multi-faceted line of fashion crafting kits from some of the most popular craft segments including scrapbooking, jewelry making and fabric embellishment.”

This has left us speechless. Not to do your thinking for you, but allow us to do your thinking for you: we are presuming you probably prefer we not start affixing crystals and other sparkly embellishment to your preppy placemats, towels and other items.  Is this a good guess?

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

From our “You Can’t Make this Stuff Up” files, news today that the PETA ad for Sunday’s Super Bowl has been rejected by NBC; it is considered too sexually explicit for air.  How could a spot from this activist group involve sex, you wonder? We did too. Apparently because the ad features woman having relations. With vegetables.  Seriously.

PETA has their version of the story:

“After we submitted our proposed Super Bowl ad, which features a comely crop of models demonstrating their fondness for fresh produce, NBC nixed the ad, saying it “depicts a level of sexuality exceeding our standards.” No joke, this is straight from NBC—so stop fondling your fruit salad right now and read the list of shots NBC requested we cut before they’d reconsider:”

The group then lists some of the banned shots, not seen above, because we’re not listing them. One of their examples? “…rubbing —– region with pumpkin….” and the rest are far more explicit. And insane. But that’s just us. So there you have it.

On a related note, we *are* curious what PETA will have to say about Inaugural gown designer Jason Wu, creator of the party frock Michelle Obama wore last week.  In statements made by the  designer last week he did say he is “…working on a significant fur collection.”

For any readers still interested in behind-the-scenes details about J. Crew working on designs for Sasha and Malia Obama, the Telegraph has another story on the topic.

“Although the team never communicated directly with Mrs. Obama over the wardrobe created for the inauguration celebrations, says Lyons, they wanted to wish them well. “We tucked little notes in the coat pockets saying, ‘Congratulations, we love you guys!’ “

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The increasingly popular Mad Men continues to leave its mark on the fashion world.  Today we have news there may be a Mad Men clothing line in the works from the show’s costume designer, Janie Bryant. In an interview with Glamour, Ms. Bryant hedges a bit when asked specifically about future projects, and fashionistas have translated this response into meaning “possible/probable clothing line.”

One of the more interesting parts of the articles delves into sources of inspiration for Ms. Bryant when designing for “Betty Draper,” played by the incredible January Jones.

A SOTT (Sign of the times) note to fans of Domino magazine that just crossed: the magazine is being shut down. WWD just sent an urgent with that sad news.

Now, in order to be sure we leave you with a smile, we end on an up note, the Big Fish Boys Sailboat Tee-shirt at one of our favorites, Best Dressed Child.

The Return of Bonwit Teller and Not so Goody’s News

Happy Monday to all…hopefully everyone’s time out of the City this weekend was restorative and rewarding.

A few very brief snippets, at least for this early post. First, the fabulous news about the return of Bonwit Teller. At one time this ranked high on the list of the Princess’s favorite retail emporiums, at least of the large, department store variety. As this vintage ad demonstrates (at least if you can see it, and then use your imagination just a bit), Bonwits was a superb outpost of refined elegance and discreet good taste, traits infrequently experienced in today’s retail culture.

Vintage Bonwit Teller ad for House of Bianchi Wedding Gown

Many of us of ‘a certain age’ fondly (yours truly *most* definitely included) recall the look of this fabled logo, as seen in this instance on an old credit card. That was being auctioned on eBay. (That had all of the identifying information out there for the world to see. We did ask Mister Princess to fuzzy up the individual’s name and address. Honestly.) But we do bring it to you as it is our only method of sharing that brilliant logo. We were always just a bit gaga over the Bonwits shopping bags, they were so very pretty.

Vintage Bonwit Teller Card

At any rate, here’s a bit of info from a story that crossed on the Business Wire a few weeks ago:

“The iconic brand helped launch the careers of notable designers such as Henri Bendel and Calvin Klein, and “Bonwit’s” stores and brand-building efforts featured the work of renowned artists such as Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Richard Avedon, and Robert Rauschenberg. Bonwit Teller is widely given credit for pioneering the notion of shopping bags-as-advertisements through the use of its “violets” logo, still fondly recalled.

“Bonwit Teller set the standard for the high-end shopping experience for a century,” said Najjar. “I am excited to revitalize Bonwit’s heritage for today’s marketplace. Bonwit once outfitted fashion icons such as Jackie Kennedy and Grace Kelly – the new Bonwit will evoke that sense of glamour, with a modern twist.”

The initial flagship store in New York should be open by the end of next year with another store in Los Angeles opening shortly after that. Whoo-hoo! This is such happy-happy and hubba-hubba news, it’s even better than the Lilly store opening on Madison!

But in not-so-wonderful news, word today that struggling Goody’s Family Clothing, the Nashville-based chain of 300+ stores, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The company plans to close 69 ‘underperforming stores’; Georgia and South Carolina will be hardest hit by the closings.

Goody\'s Ashley Judd Banner

Apparently the retailer’s Ashley Judd line may not be doing as well as hoped because of its higher price points. Here is a quick pic of an Ashley Judd Silk Blouse in pink, originally priced at $44 it is now about $31; it is also machine washable silk.

Goody\'s Clothing Ashley Judd Silk BlouseDuck Head Madras shorts at Goody\'s

Goody’s spent $4 million almost 5 years ago to buy the Duck Head trademark, in part because of its high consumer recognition ratings in the southeast. Above we show Duck Head Jeans Co. Patchwork Plaid Madras Shorts for men. The Princess hopes the company is able to pull out of its slump and promises to keep you updated.

A Princess Note: Some information in the Bonwits post provided by Business Wire and WWD.
