Fashion Alerts: Gucci Wants You, Tavi and Her Bow are Back, and Camel Makes Me Think of Toes

Of course Olivier Zahm would be at Jane Birkin’s place for daughter Lou Doillon’s birthday party yesterday. And of course Lou looked great for her moment in front of the candles. And of course Olivier recorded it. [Purple Diary]

The bow is back: Tavi is heading to Antwerp for a Stephen Jones exhibit and is taking the bow with her. Fashion editors—you know who I’m talking about—be warned.  [Style Rookie]

The New York Times tracks the historical origins that led to the Asian-American triple play at this year’s CFDA awards. An interesting take, but with a range of viewpoints as vast as the term “Asian” itself, I think these designers will be around long after their proverbial 15 minutes. [NYTimes]

One of those designers honored at the CFDAs, Richard Chai, has collaborated with sportswear company American Penguin on a teaser collection that debuts during Fashion Week. It sounds like a surprisingly affordable way to jump on the preppy trend. [Sportswear International]

If you’re a New Yorker and you’ve been out of sorts since Chanel’s Soho boutique closed for remodeling five months ago, it’s time to relax. The boutique has re-opened, now boasting a 10-foot-tall bottle of No. 5. [Hint Mag]

Remember when I told you to hurry and get your e-vite to the Gucci show in Milan? Well, it’s time to pull together your best outfit because they want to put you in the show. [Grazia Daily]

Keira Knightley was spotted this weekend filming a new Chanel ad in one of the more out-there takes on fall’s camel trend. Questions for Chanel: Will actually riding a motorcycle help me get away with a velour, camel-colored, biker-babe outfit? And why does this make me think of Dina Martina? [Grazia Daily]

Screw beige; I’d rather rock Jane’s latest find, one that just happens to be an item on my must-have list for fall: a great leather jacket. [Sea of Shoes]

Emily discovers holiday-weekend vintage shopping and scores. I think that a leopard-print coat is a perfect Happy-Labor-Day-to-me gift. [Cupcakes and Cashmere]

The fashion world loves to make up unnecessary words, but I give a thumbs-up to “Gypset,” a much better term than “hot gypsy.” [Gypsy Diaries]

Michelle Williams’ collared Jason Wu dress from the Venice film festival seems to be getting two very different reviews this morning: adorable or hideous. I vote for adorable—well, more like classic and timeless—but someone should’ve taken a pair of scissors to that hemline. [Jezebel]
