Jony Ive, Marc Newson showcase Apple Watch to fashion luminaries in Paris


Tuesday, September 30, 2014, 06:45 am PT (09:45 am ET)

The Apple Watch has attracted some of fashion’s biggest names to its one-day-only showing at Parisian boutique Colette, with industry icons like Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld turning up to get a look at Apple’s long-awaited foray into the wearable device market.

Wintour — the infamous editor of Vogue and arguably the most powerful person in fashion — and Chanel creative chief Lagerfeld were given a personal introduction to the Apple Watch by Apple design czar Jony Ive and Marc Newson, the latest addition to Cupertino’s industrial design team.

Newson’s is a more familiar name in fashion circles than Ive’s, thanks to the former’s stint designing timepieces under the banner of Swiss watchmaker Ikepod. Newson officially joined Apple earlier this month, and his presence in Paris seems to confirm that he was intimately involved with the Apple Watch’s design process.

Tuesday’s showing, which coincides with Paris Fashion Week, marks the first time Apple’s newest product has been shown to the general public. The choice of Colette — one of the trendiest shops in Paris, the epicenter of fashion — is unsurprising, given Apple’s deliberate positioning of the Apple Watch as a fashion accessory, rather than strictly as an electronic device.

During a review of the Apple Watch, well-known horological blogger Ariel Adams hinted that Apple might expand distribution of the Apple Watch to include high-end department stores and boutiques.

While the Apple Watch Sport is made of aluminum and will ship with a plastic-like band for around $350, the Apple Watch Edition is made of 18-karat gold. Apple has yet to reveal pricing for the higher-end model, but some estimates have placed its final retail cost at as much as $5,000 — a total that would place it in direct competition with traditional timepieces from brands like Rolex and Omega.

Kendall Jenner Continues Her Paris Fashion Week Takeover, Walks at Sonia …

It’s another day at Paris Fashion Week, which means another chance for Kendal Jenner to continue her runway domination.

Ever since the 18-year-old made her debut last season, she has gained steam and landed coveted, high fashion gigs left and right, walking in the biggest shows of Fashion Week.

So it wasn’t a shocker when Kendall appeared on the Sonia Rykiel spring 2015 show Monday in Paris.

Sonia Rykiel (now helmed by artistic director Geraldo da Conceicao) is a label known for its Parisian sense of femininity and whimsy, and Kendall fit right in, once again proving her runway skills.

Lucky‘s Eva Chen captured a great moment of Kendall owning the runway on Vine, wearing a supremely sexy black two-piece ensemble. Along with her skintastic look, Kendall also donned a much more covered-up outfit: a khaki jumpsuit with a red white and blue striped shirt peeking out.

And just yesterday Kendall was killing it on the runway yet again during the Givenchy show. Creative director Riccardo Tisci is a longtime friend of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian (and designer of Kim’s wedding dress), so it was a family affair during the Givenchy show with Kim, Kanye, North West and mom Kris Jenner all sitting supportively in the front row.

And before that Kendall has been on a veritable runway takeover, walking in shows like Balmain in Paris, Dolce Gabbana, Bottega Veneta, Pucci and Fendi in Milan. And let’s not forget about New York Fashion Week. Kendall walked in Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan and Tommy Hilfiger.

We’re exhausted just listing all the shows Kendall walked in. If we were Kendall, we’d be pounding pixie sticks and energy drinks just to stay awake, but she’s able keep up the healthy way. Her secret energy boost? “I usually start my day off with a cup of detox tea,” Kendall revealed to E! News. “I have like 12 cups a day.”

And we have a feeling she’s going to keep the teakettle close at hand, because Paris Fashion Week isn’t over yet. We’ve still got major shows left, like Chanel—so stay tuned!

The Great North West Paris Fashion Week Tour Continues

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have had a quite eventful Paris Fashion Week. They both showed off dramatic cleavage at Lanvin. They dressed as an intergalactic royal couple at Balmain. Kim was nearly trampled getting out of a car. And, at the Balenciaga show, they were joined by the littlest Kardashian: North West. North, wearing a Yeezus sweatshirt, sat on the lap of her mother for the duration of the show (taking notes for her fashion Tumblr on her Apple Watch prototype, probably). Kim told Yahoo! Style that she had not necessarily been planning to take her daughter along for the event. “She started to cry when we were walking out the door, and we couldn’t leave her,” she said. “So, it was a spur-of-the-moment thing. But it was an amazing fashion show for her to be at for her first show!”

And only a few days later, the youngster has already become something of a Fashion Week veteran (move aside, Dakota Fanning), as North attended the Givenchy show with parents, Kim and Kanye, as well as grandmother Kris Jenner. This time around, mother and daughter matched, in sheer black-lace ensembles. And, order was restored, as North was given her own seat (after what, no doubt, Kim and Kanye have been spelling out as the “B-A-L-E-C-I-A-G-A S-E-A-T-I-N-G S-I-T-U-A-T-I-O-N” so that North doesn’t understand them and throw a fit). Her seat was marked with a placard that spelled out “Mademoiselle North West”—and that chair has since, we can only imagine, been placed on display in the Louvre.
