Fashion Scoops: Good Morning, Hermès... Barrett Hops the Pond...

“Was it too early?” Hermès chief executive Patrick Thomas asked sheepishly before dawn on Thursday.

IN THE TRUNK: The trunk show season appears to be in full swing. After hosting a Lanvin trunk show last week, Barneys New York did the honors for Givenchy this week. Among the top-selling pieces in the three-day trunk show were $2,965 gray leather motorcycle pants, a $2,780 coated cotton motorcycle jacket, a $1,300 knit turtleneck top with leather sleeves, a $3,540 fur trim collar military jacket, a $1,155 jersey one-sleeve, draped blouson top, a $1,570 covered pearl jersey, drape neck sleeveless top and a $2,060 viscose knit one-sleeve asymmetric, flare-front dress with feather inset shoulder. Accessories bestsellers included a $1,305 evening chain clutch, a $1,750 pair of black studded heels and a $995 leather ankle bootie. “We started carrying Givenchy when Riccardo Tisci became the designer,” said Julie Gilhart, Barneys’ senior vice president and fashion director. “From the very beginning, our customers responded just not to the clothes but to the shoes and bags as well.”

WEST DEVON: Manhattan-based designer Lyn Devon is packing her bags and heading to Los Angeles next week. On Monday night, her childhood best friend, actress Lake Bell, will fete her with a garden party at interior designer Nathan Turner’s West Hollywood store. The next evening Devon fans will have a chance to buy her spring collection and order from her fall line at a cocktail party-cum-trunk show at new boutique Arcade. This June, Devon will have more to celebrate: she’s launching a 50-item capsule collection of summer sportswear, which will be available to private clients.
