MORE JLO: Another day, another new JLo product category. The ubiquitous Jennifer Lopez has now attached her name to cold-weather accessories, with a line of JLo by Jennifer Lopez hats, gloves and scarves scheduled to make their debut this fall. Lopez’s masterbrand firm, Sweetface Fashions, has signed a licensing deal with Oxnard, Calif.-based August Accessories to produce the line, which will include fabrics and designs that coordinate with the JLo by Jennifer Lopez sportswear offerings. Retail prices are likely to be between $20 and $60, the company said.
SAY CHEESE: Donatella Versace’s daughter, Allegra, is ready for her closeup. Pamela Hanson shot the teenager at the family’s New York town house last Tuesday for Teen Vogue’s October-November Young Hollywood issue.
ROCK OF AGES: Hedi Slimane’s first book of photography, “Berlin,” won’t hit bookstores for another month or so, but already he’s at work on an encore. Turns out the Dior Homme designer, whose slim threads have a knack for winding up on rock stars’ backs, has been documenting the backstage scene at concerts for some time. He said the book will be focused on the backstage “rituals” associated with a live musical performance. Slimane has until November to turn in his final selections, but among backstage subjects he’s already shot are David Bowie, The White Stripes and The Rolling Stones, who have a series of gigs in Paris next week during the couture.
SPRING ROLE: During any given fashion week in Paris, Davé Cheung can usually be found serving up lemon chicken, tangy spare ribs and hot gossip at his signature Chinese restaurant, a magnet for fashion folk for more than two decades. But during the men’s spring shows, which wrapped up this week, Cheung, known simply as Davé (pronounced Dah-vay), turned the tables and strutted the catwalk in a beige cotton jumpsuit for Spanish designer Antonio Miro. But it wasn’t his first spin on the runway. “I did it for Yohji [Yamamoto] a long, long time ago,” he quipped. “But this time I really felt like a shrimp next to all those tall models.”
@kith is moving into children’s. The men’s and women’s streetwear brand has launched Kidset, a Kith kids line located in New York at 64 Bleecker Street. The line includes mini versions of staple Kith pieces like the Astor bomber jacket and the Kith box logo sweatshirts, along with a wall that can display up to 120 pairs of shoes from @adidas, @newbalance, @timberland and more. #wwdfashion
“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
