Lucky for us, J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons and Fenton/Fallon designer Dana Lorenz became fast friends after meeting during a dinner party and quickly had the idea of a jewelry collaboration. The seven-piece lineup, called Fenton/Fallon for J.Crew, is made up of Lorenz's signature chunky metals and ranges in price from $95-$295. "I didn't water my design down at all," the jewelry designer recently told Harper's Bazaar. "I included all of my iconic Fenton/Fallon things, like the pyramid studs, spikes, and jumbled chains." Having bought the bracelet above in J.Crew's Soho store yesterday, we can attest to that.
>> At the CFDA meeting earlier today, the board voted overwhelmingly to re-elect Diane von Furstenberg for a third, two-year term as president of the organization. Von Furstenberg, whose term would have originally come to an end after this year, will now serve until Dec. 31, 2012: “[The board] unanimously asked me to stay another two years and I said yes. I am happy that they love me and I love them. There is so much more to do and we’re doing it.”
And this evening, von Furstenberg held a cocktail gathering for the 2010 CFDA Award nominations announcements at her studio. She noted that the awards ceremony on June 7 at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall will host a special tribute for Alexander McQueen, and the Popular Vote category, which is open to public voting and which Ralph Lauren won last year, will be back again this year, with voting starting April 1.
Flashbacks to the '80s can be tough to pull off, especially when it comes to interior design. But I am strangely drawn to this photo of Fenton/Fallon's new jewelry showroom in NYC. The line's designer, Dana Lorenz, was inspired by the townhouse inhabited by Sigourney Weaver's character in Working Girl, complete with a Patrick Nagel lithograph and lip-smacking chair. Is it working for you?
