I Am Tod’s

If there were a master award for overall experience at presentations, Tod’s would most certainly run away with the Milan prize. The brand held its spring showing at Villa Necchi Campiglio, the same gorgeous property where Tilda Swinton seduced left and right in the recent film I Am Love. Editors enjoyed the scenic pool and gardens over tall glasses of freshly squeezed strawberry juice. As for Derek Lam’s collection itself? It certainly didn’t disappoint with its rich buffet of bright flats in soft calfskin and crocodile as well as the introduction of the Shirt Bag, which features a coulisse closure and divine leather skin.

Teachers, books, dirty looks. We’ve officially entered the back-to-school season, and even if your student days are long gone, get into the spirit with these pencil-shaped salt and pepper shakers. Silly? Perhaps. But here at Chic we adore a bit of kitchen kitsch.

Going to the Movies with Michael Bastian

Comments | | Print

Take a peek at the ultra-charming behind the scenes look from the Spring 2011 presentation of Gant by Michael Bastian in a short titled “Life Like A Film.” The designer explains in voice-over, “We wanted it to feel very cinematic. It’s like how we were saying about how life is like a movie. You don’t know how it’s going to end. You can’t really control it, all you can do is be open to these changes. Sometimes things happen that you didn’t expect, but then it’s better.”

Looking for more MB love? (Chic can never get enough...) Check out a behind-the-scenes look from his Michael Bastians collection here!

J. Crew on its own is fab enough (merci, Jenna Lyons!), but the brand's collaborations are the perfect extra treat. Belstaff? Essie? Ray Ban? Wonderful. The next up for the store will make sportier types happy: New Balance. Frank Muytjens has teamed up with the sneaker brand to create a suede version of the classic kicks, which come in dusty forest green and navy. New Balance for J. Crew will be available in November on JCrew.com, The Liquor Store, and the J. Crew Men’s Shop in Manhattan.

This might just be Chic's favorite snap of Milan: one legendary George paying homage to another legendary Giorgio. Clooney and girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis (wearing a Roberto Cavalli suit, despite the setting) hit yesterday's Armani show, and, from the looks of it, they were duly impressed.

We know, loves---you're still in Milan mode (until demain, that is!). But allow us to direct your attention back stateside for a moment, for another Spring 2011 collection that will surely put a smile on your face. Chic Report faves Aja Singer and Anna Zeman of Alex & Eli were inspired by Jacques Cousteau and deep sea exploration for Spring (the look shown is their Submariner jacket at Wave skirt), and even dabbled in their first cutom print---hello, jellyfish! Check out the video at the link below, and prepare to covet.
