WWD News: Spring 2010 Jumpsuit Trend: Singular Sensations, School Ties… MAC Taps Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga… Patti and Robert…Steven Madden Inks Deal for Olsenboye, Mums the Word at Bergdorfs, Lance Armstrong in SoHo: Bike Night


Yes, jumpsuits are a singular sensation as WWD reports.  It is nice to hear that they will continue to be a hot trend for Spring 2010 so I can keep on wearing the ones I have and, of course, add a few more! I absolutely love anything from Zero + Maria Cornejo and what about that Rachel Roy…she has some great affordable pieces out. 

Steve Madden continues the madness of the Olsen twins fashion takeover with a licensing deal to do shoes and accessories for the Olsenboye line for J.C. Penney.  These girls are on fire with their multiple lines and what a smart move for Steve Madden to jump on the gravy train.

Bergdorf celebrated the 25th birthday of the famous eatery, Indochine, with Narciso Rodriquez co-hosting.  Definitely a NYC institution that had iconic artists, fashionistas, celebrities and let’s not forget us common folk, eat, drink and be merry there in the hey days of the 80s and 90s.  Happy Birthday Indochine!

Live Strong!  Lance Armstrong has proven to do so and then some.  On Friday night Lance opened the new Nike-sponsored Stages exhibit at Deitch Projects in SoHo, which supports the cyclist’s foundation.  New York based artists who participated were Ed Rusha and Tom Sachs, who I adore. Make a trip down to Deitch Projects to view the show.

Get ready, FrostFrench, a label founded by Sadie Frost and Jemima French, are back in full force! Next week, the label will unveil a boutique on Noel Street in London??™s Soho.
