Snoopy Is Always In Fashion

We’ve always loved Snoopy because he had attitude. He rolled his eyes at the humans and did whatever he wanted. We were precocious tots and thought he was awesome for sticking his tongue out behind Lucy’s back.

The geniuses at MetLife have figured out that just about everyone loves Snoopy and a lot of people like fashion, so maybe some of those people might buy insurance during New York Fashion Week. Yeah, a stretch, but thanks to them for their ‘Snoopy In Fashion’ runway show, featuring Project Runway‘s Laura Bennett, Jeremy Scott (off-topic: why is he not as famous as Marc Jacobs?), Heatherette, Betsey Johnson, Isaac Mizrahi and more.

By the way, if you want a taste of fab 80’s fashion featuring Snoopy, find yourself a copy of the original hardcover Snoopy In Fashion.

Snoopy In Fashion

Bowie by Keanan Duffty

We’re totally jazzed for the next Keanan Duffty for Target collection for men. Target tends to overlook the guys when it comes to their designer collaborations (not that we didn’t buy some Libertine anyway!), but this collection more than makes up for it.

Inspired by rock icon David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust period, the collection includes jeans with lightning bolts on the pockets, close-cropped vests and a black trenchcoat. So right for fall.

Debuts in October in select Target stores.

R.I.P. Canal Jeans

Canal Jeans, where we spent our formative New York years buying countless Army bags, vintage 501’s and camel overcoats, has shut its doors. An impromptu trip to the store’s latest location near NYU shocked us– doors locked, store nearly empty and a sad handwritten “Closed” sign taped to the door. *Sigh.*

Working Hard, Hardly Working

Ever pick up an issue of Harper’s Bazaar and say to yourself “Christ, what does the editor in chief of this piece of crap actually do all day?” (We do, once a month.) Mediabistro asked the tough questions and it turns out Glenda starts her day “early… 9 o’clock, 8 o’clock for previews” and reads a lot of magazines. Hey, sounds like our job!

On a side note, tell us that Glenda doesn’t look like Stephen Fry in Bernadette Peters drag.

Demilebrity Sighting

Designers Isaac Franco and Ken Kaufman (not sure which is which) hogging the fountain soda machine at the Au Bon Pain on 49th and Madison. Both all Tom Ford-ed, with flip-flops (black), deep cleavage (white button-down), obnoxious Prada jeans. Carrying garment bags, not looking happy. Couldn’t find anything about where (or if) they work now. They’re the kind of designers who’ve been everywhere but ended up nowhere. No, not like us!

J. Crew Final Sale

J. Crew is still winding up the summer season with additional markdowns off great stuff you can still wear. We love the washed tartan shirts for just $19.99. We’ll be wearing ours with a navy blue cashmere v-neck and broken-in khakis.
