MOVING ON: In no time at all, Jennifer Creel has gone from hand soaps (she is introducing L’Atelier du Savon in the U.S.) to daytime soaps (she will debut on “The Bold and the Beautiful” later this month). But on Thursday, she’ll move away from anything sudsy to host a benefit for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund that helps support the families of the American service members who have died in military operations since Sept. 11. “These young men and women are sacrificing their lives so we can go about our daily lives,” Creel says. “If they weren’t doing it, who would be?” Those expected include Tory Burch, Marjorie Raein, Reed Krakoff, Jamie Tisch, Elizabeth Lindemann, Eva Lorenzotti and Nancy and Andrew Jarecki. Creel is toying with the idea of giving out soap.
NEW PROJECT: The man of the moment, Karl Lagerfeld, is already on to the next thing. While the dust settles over his blockbuster Karl Lagerfeld for H&M collection, which sold out in hours last Friday, the designer has taken on another multibillion dollar European client: Adidas. Lagerfeld just photographed the activewear giant’s spring ad campaign, which features male and female models sporting the latest Adidas performance gear.
SPACE LANDING: New York sneakerheads now have a new product to lust after. Nike’s very limited-edition space shoe “Zvezdochka,” created in collaboration with industrial designer Marc Newson, will be feted tonight at Moss, the high-end design store in Manhattan, which is the only retailer in the U.S. to carry the line. Newson said recently that he spent several years researching the project with the Russian Space Agency to develop the high-tech, quirky-looking shoe. Named after the first Russian dog to be sent into orbit in 1961, the unisex line is available in a number of colors, but only 140 pairs will be sold in the U.S.

The Green Carpet Fashion Awards closed out Milan Fashion Week yesterday. The fashion industry flocked to the event, showing its efforts to support and spread the message of sustainability.

Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
