Rowdy Excess, Even for the Principe!

In case you’re staying at the Daily’s beloved Principe Di Savoia during the men's collections, you may have noticed that quite a few familiar faces graced the Imperial Suite last night. Details threw an excessively rowdy bash last night, hosting more guests than they expected because nearly everyone in Milan was photographing the party’s matchbox invites backstage at the shows. A model that walked in Etro’s show (Caio Cesar) served as a bartender and handed out beer bottles straight from the tub. Soon enough, two burly Italian security guards were soon dispatched to monitor the door, and they maintained their posts until guests trickled downstairs to their rooms around 3 a.m.. The mag's publisher Bill Wackermann witnessed all the fun, but EIC Dan Peres arrived to Milan late due to a family wedding, so he'll have to wait until next week in Paris for another late-night Details bash. Le Meurice, perhaps? We'll never tell.

Rumor Alert! Anna Dello Russo to W?

It's so insane it just might be true! During men's fashion week in Milan, the Principe is buzzing about Anna Dello Russo...and Stefano Tonchi? Yes, really: rumors are running rampant that Tonchi is trying to woo his longtime friend (and fellow Italian magazine editrix) Dello Russo for the fashion director gig at W. Tonchi has said that he's pretty much done with layoffs, but Chic can't imagine that the legendary Alex White will stay on board when she has so many advertising clients (David Yurman) and editorial opportunites to keep her occupied. And Tonchi's W desperately needs some good press, which the international street-style obsession Dello Russo will bring in spades. Also, Dello Russo essentially hires photographers and stylists for Japanese Vogue...which someone's gotta do at W, right? (Without Dennis Freedman, who had twenty-year-old relationships with A-list photogs like Michael Thompson, Mert & Marcus, and Bruce Weber, there's a real void in that category.) It makes sense! (But it's still crazy.) We report, you decide...

Chic adores its New Yorker subscription, especially the fiction podcasts and weekly e-blasts that tease the current issue's contents. And now, kudos to Remnick's crackerjack marketing team for thinking hors box and partnering with...a weight loss treatment center! See, even highbrow intellectuals obsessed with Susan Orlean and her chickens are interested in "that all-important support during your journey." (Side note: Isn't this where Andre went to slim down?)

Birkin Masquerade

If a $45 Hermès sounds too good to be, that’s because it is. One quick glance at this hilarious “Birkin” tote bag, and we were fooled---nearly. The clever trompe l'oeil reusable shopping bags look like the real deal, although instead of luxe Hermès calfskin, these carryalls are made entirely of canvas. Attention, anti-counterfeiters: they are in no way connected to the French fashion house. But at the very least, you will likely fool more than a few folks passing by on the street. And if we spot the fake, your secret is safe with us...
