Hedi Slimane’s Directorial Debut for Saint Laurent is Lovely [Video]

Hedi Slimane made a dance movie, his first film for Saint Laurent. Featuring the label's new line of Ballerina flats and starring house favorite Lida Fox, who dances to an original compostion by Clementine Creevy from Cherry Glazerr, the film mashes together the light, elegant aesthetic associated with traditional Saint Laurent codes and the hipper, harder California grunge direction set by Slimane in his controversial role as designer for the fashion label. Filmed in an open, airy New York City loft space in black and white, the video may not persuade you to adopt a leather bandeau top as a new wardrobe staple, but it's the most convincing expression of Slimane's vision for the house I've seen to date.

Kate Upton Channels (Wait for It) Marilyn Monroe for Vanity Fair’s 100th Anniversary Issue

Although Vanity Fair's 100th Anniversary issue cover does have an appealing vintage feel which fits the centennial occasion, there's nothing like seeing Kate Upton styled as Marilyn Monroe (photographed by Annie Leibovitz) to make my eyeballs go shooting into the back of my head. It could have been any bosomy blonde bombshell having a "Happy Birthday Mr. President" moment and it wouldn't have helped matters because: Monroe herself has risen from the grave three times since 2008 to grace the cover of Vanity Fair. Furthermore, the publication was criticized for what was seen as an opportunistic decision to run a photo of Princess Diana on the September cover, to correspond with the Royal Baby birth. Upton may be an especially unfortunate casting choice for this concept because the whole of her celebrity is predicated on an implicit comparison to Monroe — but, whatever. 

WWD's Erik Maza notes that Vanity Fair itself was revived after a fifty-year hiatus in 1983 by Condé Nast, so the whole conceit of a centennial anniversary issue is a little bit of a joke to begin with. Still, the issue has been under development for over a year and is expected to do well at the newsstand.

Adderall, Vicodin and Xanax May Sue Kitson Over Brian Lichtenberg-Designed Jerseys

Following criticism from the organization DrugFree.org, TMZ reports that the makers of Xanax are considering legal action against the clothing store Kitson for carrying a collection of Brian Lichtenberg-designed jerseys printed with the words Xanax, Adderall and Vicodin. 

Lichtenberg is known for his brand parodies (his most famous item might be the sweatshirt printed with the word "Homie," in an approximation of the Hermès logo), a growing trend in streetwear. A growing number of young designers have been incorporating elements of luxury iconography in their work, testing the boundaries of copyright. (WWD posted an in-depth feature about the trademark issues earlier this week.)

The designer released a statement through Kitson's Facebook page following accusations that the shirts glamorize drug use (below). His office could not be reached by phone today.

No matter how much we try to love our rainboots and leather, winter in Australia is a sort-of sartorial moot point: We’re just not that into it.

So Sydney's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival, which wrapped up last week, serves as a double bonus. First, it delivers a chance to put your inner fashion freak on show for three whole days in August, celebrating and shopping the trends currently hitting stores. Second, those trends are spring/summer ones, meaning excitement levels are particularly amplified. 

It’s little wonder that swimwear was the bright nylon jewel in the crown of this year’s event: Swim came thick and fast down the runways of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, and we’re veritable world champions when it comes to the important sport of bikini shopping. Here are five brands we’re dying to shop once things heat up.
