ROCK ’N’ ROLL RALPH: Bruce Springsteen hit Madison Square Garden Monday night and drew a real fashion crowd, including Ralph and Ricky Lauren, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw and Saks Fifth Avenue senior vice president of merchandising Jaqui Lividini. As for Lauren, it was his first-ever Springsteen concert but he’s been a long-time fan and observers noted the designer and Ricky boogying to the tunes. Springsteen also loves Ralph, having bought a slew of RRL T-shirts for his wardrobe.
ROYAL WEDDING: Lisa Marie Presley chose a strapless, silk taffeta wedding gown by Badgley Mischka to wear for her nuptials to actor Nicolas Cage last weekend in Hawaii. But Presley didn’t mind buying off-the-rack. According to sources, the daughter of the King picked up the dress at the designers’ boutique in Beverly Hills.
MISSING MARISA: Renaming a brand is no easy feat. But that’s what the folks at the Toronto-based ready-to-wear lineMarisa Minicucci are up to, since Minicucci left her namesake label in June. She has been replaced by Susan Lazar. Executives at Zenobia, Marisa Minicucci’s parent firm, said the decision is still up in the air, but Zenobia is a contender for the new title. Meanwhile, Zenobia president Barry Bly is banking on the designer and plans to grow the business between 15 and 20 percent in 2003. He said, though, that putting Lazar’s name on the label is unlikely.

“There’s a huge gap between the old way of doing things and today. It takes the youth to help evolve that. You have to count on the kids today to help lead you into the future. A lot of these retailers are stuck in the past. Communication is the biggest thing,” said @ronniefieg of @kith on the youth’s role in retail. On Monday night, Jeff Staple moderated a keynote session with Fieg and @syresmith at Assembly - a series of workshops, talks and keynotes addressing topics or issues in the apparel industry. Head to WWD.com to read more advice from Fieg and what Smith thinks of his dad @willsmith’s Instagram account and sustainability (📷: @weston.wells)
