Fashion Scoops: Homecoming … Where’s the Beef … Building Support

HOMECOMING: Could Andrea Pinto, who recently tendered his resignation at Nina Ricci, be heading back to Krizia? Sources in Italy said Pinto, who worked at the Milan-based house for almost a dozen years under his father, Krizia chairman Aldo Pinto, will start next month in a senior management role. A fashion veteran, Pinto Junior worked five years as managing director of Mila Schon after leaving Krizia. He had joined Nina Ricci as president last October.WHERE'S THE BEEF?: There was high drama at DB Thursday night, with two editors in chief sharing the dining room--or, at least, trying to share it. Vogue's Anna Wintour arrived first, with a friend, and was promptly escorted to a plum table in the back. When Harper's Bazaar's Glenda Bailey arrived a few minutes later with a posse that included former Vogue shutterbug Roxanne Lowitt, the group was brought to a table in the only slightly less desirable front room. Bailey complained, and so did Lowitt--but to no avail. (Meanwhile, Wintour enjoyed her DB burger, no bun.)BUILDING SUPPORT: Eagle-eyed garmentos have recently noticed a mysterious message spray-painted on one of the upper girders of a building being erected on Seventh Avenue near 41st Street that reads, "Thank you, Ellen Tracy." No, it's not admiration from a potential suitor, but rather acknowledgement of a donation made by Ellen Tracy employees to help with the medical expenses of a construction worker who was injured on the site last week. A spokeswoman for the firm said its staff had collected about $1,000 for the man, thus prompting the thanks."
Taking the final spot on the mens’ portion of New York Fashion Week calendar next month will be none other than @tomford. Though he’s shown his men’s wear in New York in the past, this will mark the first time the designer has shown his men’s collection alone during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. His runway show will debut on February 6 at the Park Avenue Armory. #wwdfashion
London-based couture house @ralphandrusso has certainly been in the spotlight, having its dresses worn by @beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Meghan Markle in her engagement photos and more. For couture, Tamara Ralph focused on ornamentation — think: feathers with chain mail, jet embroidery and clusters of pearls and crystals.

Minnie Mouse celebrated her 90th birthday by getting her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For her celebratory luncheon, @coach’s creative director @stuartvevers dressed her in a custom made prairie dress, complete with Vever’s take on the polka dot – black sequined versions – under a cropped motorcycle jacket. The designer also put his own mark on Minnie’s classic red shoes, infusing the color with sparkles and adding some Coach crystals. “We chose colors that were very Minnie and also represented quintessential Coach elements,” said Vevers. #wwdfashion #nationalpolkadotday (📷: George Chinsee)
@nickjonas is unveiling his first-ever apparel collection through a partnership with John Varvatos. The limited-edition capsule, which makes its debut in spring, also marks the first time the designer has collaborated with anyone on a line. “The process in working with Nick is amazing. It’s inspiring to be around someone who is not only connected with the trade that they do, but also with what’s happening in the environment around him, and how that connects to what we do with style,” said Varvatos.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
