Little Doe Chase Cohl’s fashion-forward hair accessories with a homemade hipster edge include headbands, headpieces and miniature headdresses. Cohl began by stringing together delicate silk pansies and sewing them onto a velvet ribbon. Each handmade piece takes about seven hours to complete.
Floral and feathered headbands start at $300, and taller headpieces and crowns are $400. For fall, Cohl is experimenting with tie-dyed velvet, braided silks and gold and silver painted feathers. Custom and special orders are available at oeislove.com, and ready-made styles are sold at Satine in Los Angeles.
Costume Dept. This summer’s “Mama Mia! The Movie” is ushering in a new generation of Abba fans, bringing with them Lycra spandex leggings as the latest retro trend to make a comeback. Costume Dept. (costumedept.com) offers leggings made from dead stock fabrics from the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties in wild patterns, from outrageous ethnics to leopard-print crushed velvet to turquoise tiger prints. Prices range from $35 to $59.
Garland Collection This jewelry line specializes in nameplate pendants in white, yellow and rose gold. The flat, egg-shaped pieces are bordered by an intricately engraved crest with a space in the middle for a name, initials or a special date.
Designer Nicole Mann Novick came up with the idea after seeking a keepsake of her own wedding. Now, even “Gossip Girl” Blair Waldorf sports one.
Starting at $480, they come with 16-, 18- or 30-inch chains, as well as the option of a “diamonds by the yard” chain. Updated ID bracelets also are available. Novick predicts the next “It” piece will be a 57-carat lemon quartz stone “ring pop” modeled after the nostalgic candy. Garland sells at Fred Segal, Rose Ark and garlandcollection.com.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa, flanked by two of his closest friends, models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell.
He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
