Calvin Klein's Italo Zucchelli came out to support his buddies Malcom Carfrae and Julie Anne Quay last night at the Australians in New York Fashion Foundation event. We took a moment to chat with the designer about his Summer plans and the mega-star that recently jumped on him.
What are your plans for the summer?
I have a house in Fire Island, so that's where I'm going.
Do you go out on Saturday to the tea dance there?
Believe it or not, Fire Island is the place where I completely decompress. But I will go out occasionally. I did that for so long...
How many years have you been going out there?
Probably 7 or 8.
Do you entertain a lot of people out there?
Yeah, when I'm in the mood. Like two weekends ago, we entertained every night. Last weekend, I did the weekend by myself. I didn't want to see anybody. It was great. I'm on my way to go to all the shows, so I needed a weekend of silence. Of course, Lady Gaga was blasting from every house, so it wasn't totally silent. I actually met her two days ago!
What was that like?
Someone introduced her to me and she jumped. Like literally jumped on me!
Not everybody can say that! Did she meet your expectations?
Yes! She's a cool girl. Very articulate, very intelligent.

Didn't see this one coming! Helena Bonham Carter is the new face of Marc Jacobs' Fall 2011 campaign. The actress, who jumps back and forth between best and worst dressed lists, follows in the footsteps of Dakota Fanning, Sofia Coppola and Victoria Beckham in mugging for Marc. What's Joan Rivers going to have to say about this? (Fun fact: Marc Jacobs' father was once Joan's agent at William Morris.)

Shhhh! Cameras caught Byrdie Bell whispering something in the ear of Karlie Kloss last night at Dior's party to celebrate the launch of Dior VIII. The utterly charming Kloss also stopped by the Australians in New York Fashion Foundation event earlier in the evening.

On Wednesday morning, Francisco Costa showed his Resort 2011 collection at CK HQ on 39th Street, and in case you were wondering, minimalism isn't going anywhere. Of course, it's only Costa who manages to execute this vibe with such a light touch and effortless effect. With t-shirt dressing as a starting point, the twenty looks brilliantly played with length and volume. Billowing silk pants, paired with a tailored jacket, are an updated option for Summer's ubiquitous maxi skirt, while Costa's take on a sheath—elbow-length, with a slightly fuller skirt that narrows a few inches below the knee—is another welcome transgression from the norm. With a palette of mostly black, white, royal blue, and lilac, there was nary a bright in sight—but then again, Costa never needs to shout.

Twenty8Twelve designer Savannah Miller graciously reveals the 2011 grads to watch from her alma mater, Central Saint Martins. Remember these names, people! Don't miss the incredible designs in our Gallery.
"This graduate fashion week marked the end of an era for my old college, Central Saint Martins. This is the last year that the students were based at the famous hallowed halls of Charring Cross Road, where I witnessed many a miracle (most of them performed by my classmate Chris Kane, incidentally). Last Tuesday night was the final collections show for the graduating class, and it was outstanding. Of the entire bunch, these are my favorites—I've picked them because they, in particular, exemplify the St. Martins aesthetic. The collections are mostly uncommercial, and totally, brilliantly imaginative. Annabel Luton did gorgeous, elegant prints. Crimson Rose O'Shea did a fabulously colourful collection while playing with proportions really successfully. Flaminia Saccucci's printed latex was stunning. Ivan Curia Nunes did gorgeous menswear, and I loved the accessories. Katie Jones’ incredible crochet blew me away. I loved Lucie Sutton’s collection; it felt contemporary, relevant and commercial. I thought Manami Sakurai's giant quilting was adorable and classic CSM. Momo Wang's collection was bananas, with amazing colours and multitudes of different prints all layered up. This one really stood out. I also loved Sheg Wei Wang's amazing knits, and Steven Tai had amazing texture in his collection. I look forward to many more amazingly inspiring young designers emerging from Saint Martins when it moves home.
Until next time,

To celebrate World Oceans Day and international ocean advocacy organization Oceana, which La Mer has partnered with since 2005, the ne plus ultra purveyor of skincare is launching a limited-edition cream. World Oceans Day Creme, as it is known, will retail for $365 and come in a 100 ml commemorative ocean-inspired jar—but rest assured, it's the same kelp-rich Miracle Broth, developed by Dr. Max Huber, that you've come to know and love. To sweeten the project, La Mer enlisted Soundwalk to create the Seven Seas Sound Mix, a marine-inspired iPhone and iPad app that provides a sensory escape to a more tranquile locale. As ee cummings once wrote: "for whatever we lose (like a you or a me) / it's always ourselves we find in the sea." THE DETAILS: $365, at select Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman locations, and at lamer.com.
