SWIM LIKE EVA: The role fashion has played in Eva Herzigova’s life has always been a large one, but it’s about to get even bigger. The model’s spokeswoman confirmed Herzigova is about to launch a swimwear collection. The line, featuring about 12 swimsuits and a dozen other complementing pieces such as cover-ups and pants, will bow for spring. There are few details on the line’s production and distribution. Prices will likely start at around $110 retail, or 100 euros in local currency, and distribution will be international but selective, the spokeswoman said. Herzigova also is busy designing her own ballet slipper. Her creation will be produced by Sabelt, a Turin-based sports footwear firm that is owned by the family of her boyfriend, Gregorio Marsiaj.

WIGGED OUT: If there’s a charity of choice for the fashion crowd, it’s New Yorkers for Children. The latest company to get behind it is Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche, which is donating to the charity proceeds from the opening party for its store at 3 East 57th Street on Thursday night. What’s more, the event also will mark the unveiling of YSL’s window displays, as inspired by the fall collection and ad campaign —?meaning the mannequins will be sporting the same wild Diana Ross hairdos as their runway model counterparts.
