At a party at Colette Wednesday night for the launch of handbags the artist designed for Longchamp, Emin hinted that more fashion projects could be in the works. “I would like to start my own company so people can collaborate with me,” she joked. But seriously, she’s working on a project involving cashmere, though she was mum on the details. Meanwhile, Lou Doillon, an avid seamstress, was paying close attention to the patchworks Emin is known for, since Doillon herself has whipped up pillows and blankets for her two-year-old son, Marlowe-Tigger. Elsewhere at the party, French actress Marion Cotillard mused about the film she recently wrapped up with a rather unwieldy title: “Un long dimanche de fiançailles” or “A Very Long Engagement.” “There’s a new trend in film titles these days,” she said. “They’ve got to be a least three kilometers long.”
