Daily Dish: Jessica Simpson Doing Baby Clothes, Prabal Gurung Tee?, Rodarte Doing Opera, and More...
JESSICA SIMPSON TO DO BABY CLOTHES, MATERNITY LINE
Seeing as she’s currently pretty preggo (and due sometime this spring) and her eponymous clothing line already makes billions of dollars, its only fitting that Jessica Simpson will launch baby clothes and a maternity line next. Her sister Ashley, already a mom, is said to be collaborating.
PRABAL GURUNG LAUNCHES TEES FOR SPRING
He just launched his first collection in 2009, but the Nepalese designer’s awesome red carpet gowns have already been seen on Oprah Winfrey, Demi Moore and Michelle Obama. This spring he’s launching a line of graphic tees, which (possibly?) the rest of us might actually be able to afford.
LOUIS VUITTON TEAMS UP WITH JAPANESE ARTIST YAYOI KASUMA
Louis Vuitton’s artistic director Marc Jacobs has already had great success doing pop-art collaborations with Murakami and Stephen Sprouse, and this summer, the fashion house will team up with Yayoi Kasuma, the Japanese artist who’s best known for putting lots of dots on everything. Expect to see lots of dotty bags on the arms of stylish celebs very soon.
BLACK SWAN COSTUME DESIGNERS RODARTE TO TAKE ON OPERA
The Mulleavy sisters, the duo behind beloved line Rodarte (and Black Swan’s gorgeous costumes) are set to design the costumes for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s new production of Don Giovanni, which opens May 18th. With Frank Gehry designing the production set, this is one opera culture buffs (or really really big Black Swan fans) won’t want to miss.
10 CROSBY DEREK LAM THE COOLEST DIFFUSION LINE EVER
The designer launched his more affordable line, 10 Crosby, back in November, but we’re more obsessed with his 2012 Spring Line (available now at Bloomingdale’s) which features bold colored maxi dresses, graphic prints, and stripes, stripes, stripes. The line is set to already surpass his original in both sales and scope this spring, and we’re not at all surprised.
