CAVIAR CROWD: Paris boutique Colette amped up its art quotient Thursday night with the prelaunch of a limited edition footwear collection by Tommy Hilfiger in collaboration with the Keith Haring Foundation and Artestar LLC. The range, which will officially launch in September, includes sneakers and rain boots for women and children, and men’s sneakers carrying artwork from the late artist. Also on show was “Drawings,” a collection of colorful doodles by nightlife impresario André Saraiva.

French actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey, who appears in French Connection’s spring campaign, said she has an experimental film, “Extase,” in the running for selection for the Cannes International Film Festival. She later joined the likes of Melvil Poupaud, Victoire de Castellane and Lou Doillon for a dinner feting the two events in Caviar Kaspia. Eva Herzigova turned up in time for dessert, as the rowdy crowd transformed the floral arrangements into headgear. “A moment’s silence, please, I worked hard on this,” commanded Doillon of her ornate wreath.

Director Gaspard Noe said he’s about to begin promotion of “Enter the Void.” Brett Chittenden, creative concept director for the Quiksilver, Roxy and DC brands, said his latest projects include a Quiksilver travel bag and surfboard line by David Carson for April, a capsule clothing line for Roxy by Bambi by Laura founder Laura Figueras, and a snowboard collection by Henry Holland for September. “It’s very punk meets snowboard,” Holland said.

Meanwhile, Tommy Hilfiger is zeroing in on a retail space on the Champs-Elysées Avenue that, if signed, could be equal in size to its sprawling New York flagship.
