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.
DESTINATION BRYANT PARK: Fashion addicts have another reason to go to eBay. W Hotels is auctioning “Catwalk for a Cause,” a weeklong sojourn to this month’s spring 2004 edition of 7th on Sixth, with bidding through Sept. 12. Proceeds will benefit Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. The winner will score seats at fashion shows — Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Catherine Malandrino, Lacoste, Luca Luca and Anna Sui are on the agenda — a backstage tour, access to the closing-night bash, a shopping spree, car service, dinner, a few other freebies and, of course, accommodations at the W. After all the festivities, the freshly minted fashionista can take another complementary getaway, thanks to two free tickets on Song Airlines, a Delta carrier for the stylish set.
@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
