Fashion Scoops: Champagne Wishes... Missoni's New Man... Chanel Gallery...

Neiman Marcus is celebrating its 100th anniversary this fall, and has arranged for dozens of its best vendors to provide special merchandise for the occasion.

COKE’S ECO-FRIENDLY FASHION: Coca-Cola and the Park City, Utah-based Revolve apparel company are teaming up for the environment. The companies will launch an apparel collection called Re:Volve for Coca-Cola at the S(eco)nd show in Las Vegas at the end of this month. The line, which consists of graphic T-shirts, is made from recycled plastic Coke bottles to create a completely sustainable apparel collection. The T-shirts are the first step in a series of products the company hopes to introduce under the Re:Volve for Coca-Cola brand. "Our long-term goal is to realize 100 percent reuse of the PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles we place into the market," said Scott Vitters, director of sustainable packaging at Coca-Cola.

LAST CALL: Katie Couric's CBS run might be hitting its share of bumps, but she was singing her heart out Saturday night at The Summer House's piano bar on Nantucket. Her beau, Brooks Perlin, picked up the bar tab for the newswoman and her gaggle of friends before they helped close the joint down with a rendition of "America the Beautiful." Steven Tyler caught Couric's arrival, but the Aerosmith frontman was long gone before her rendition of "Sweet Caroline." She wasn't the only familiar face in the crowd to Tyler — Summer House owners Danielle deBenedictis and Peter Karlson gave him a real sense of deja vu. He reminded them how they rented their Commonwealth Avenue apartment to him when he was a struggling Boston musician more than 30 years ago.

PRINTED MATTER: Alec Baldwin weathered the overheated stables at Edith Wharton's summer estate in Lenox, Mass., Friday to read aloud one of the author's lengthier short stories, but he wasn't about to mince words about his own work. Approached by a reporter about upcoming projects, the actor said, "Oh, I don't do any of that any more," "that" being print media. Asked if it was due to any particular bad experience, Baldwin laughed and replied, "Acres of them."
