Coty Denies Lady Gaga Scent Deal... Selfridges Says Sorry...

Lady Gaga scent rumors are false, say Coty execs.

BEACH GLITTER: It was party time for Elie Tahari at his East Hampton flagship on Saturday. The celebration marked the second year of the “Sparkle in the Sun” jewelry collaboration with the Council of Fashion Designers of America. “We wanted to give these designers the opportunity to show their product, gain a new clientele and attract a new customer base that they wouldn’t necessarily be able to,” Tahari said.

The list of designers comprises both up-and-coming and established talent: Ben Amun, Patricia von Musulin, Janis Savitt, Nak Armstrong, Jill Platner, Irene Neuwirth, Gemma Redux, Ruby Kobo and House of Waris.

The collaboration extends until Labor Day weekend, with three rotations of three designers. All proceeds from sales go directly back to the designer. Retail prices range from $48 for a Lucite Patricia von Musulin ring to $48,000 for a ring made of multicolored rough-, square- and rose-cut diamonds from Armstrong, whose collection is available exclusively at the boutique. “It is great that Elie Tahari is helping his fellow CFDA members,” said CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg. “We are a family of designers and that is what families do.”
