SHADES OF CLINTON: Sen. Hillary Clinton’s colors for spring are clearly coral and more coral. She made her way to the new Ermenegildo Zegna boutique on Fifth Avenue last Wednesday around five — she is friendly with Zegna U.S.A. chief executive officer Richard Cohen — and treated herself to an Agnona coral silk peacoat and a coral crewneck sweater in light cashmere.
MIND THE GAP: Are khakis and T-shirts sexy for the city? Apparently. Word has it that Gap is in negotiations to have Sarah Jessica Parker star in an upcoming advertising campaign. Asked about the rumor, a Gap spokeswoman would only say, “I can’t confirm anyone yet.”
THE SHOW GOES ON: Julien Macdonald may have exited Givenchy, but the fashion firm’s in-house design team is hard at work. Marco Gobbetti, the new ceo, confirmed that a collection is being prepared for Paris couture week July 6-9. The house has not decided whether it will do a runway show, but there will be a presentation for clients at the least. Gobbetti has given no timetable to name a new couturier, but an announcement isn’t expected for several months.
LUNCHABLES: If Harper’s Bazaar is losing some of its talent lately, perhaps there’s a brighter future. Editor in chief, Glenda Bailey, was spotted lunching on Friday at Lever House with Caroline Miller, the deposed editor of New York magazine. But it must have been a tough meal for freewheeling conversation, considering only two tables away sat Miller’s replacement, Adam Moss, who was dining with New York’s restaurant critic, Hal Rubenstein.
