As you would expect, just about everyone turned up to see Marc Jacobs' Fall 2012 show yesterday. Front row goers included good friend Rachel Zoe who sat next to the designer's former partner Lorenzo Martone, along with editors like Suzy Menkes, Glenda Bailey, Anna Dello Russo and Amy Astley. Celebrity-wise, all eyes were 'Oh Lola!' face Dakota Fanning and Maria Sharapova.
Calling all models and non-models alike: Nycked needs a new model for its Summer '11 look book and marketing campaign. The "lifestyle swimwear" line launched this summer by model publicist Lorenzo Martone and Bijules jewellery designer Jules Kim is hosting an open casting call in New York today, should you happen to want to deck yourself out in a bikini. In case you're interested, head to 208 West 30th Street, Suite 901, between 5 and 7 p.m. Good luck!
Only a few weeks ago, we saw the marvellous Marc Jacob's celebrating his engagement to Lorenzo Martone, at a huge party in St Barts. With a wedding cake that would draw out the bridezilla in any woman, featuring figurines of the couple and their dogs, it seemed the happy couple were set to have a beautiful wedding later this year.
However, Martone did say that the party was kind of a wedding but the official paperwork and legal proceedings had not quite been arranged, as of yet. Yesterday though, the story took a turn for the worst as Jacobs vehemently told British Vogue,"No I am not getting married." It seem's that the honeymoon period that never began is already over.
In February of this year it was announced that Lorenzo Martonewould be starting a swimsuit range with Jules Kim, jewelry designer for Bijules. Despite the fact that Martone is from the exotic Brazil, the inspiration for the collection came from New York, specifically Manhattan.
Prices for the swimsuits range from $120-$130 whilst cover-ups go up to around $210. The name of the line "Nycked" which notably has "NYC" is pronounced "Nicked" and is said to be a reflection of New York style. The line will be shown at Miami Swim Fashion Week in July where the designers hope that exclusive stores such as Saks and Neiman Marcus will be interested in investing in the collection.
