CAR CRASH FASHION: Swedish designer Ann-Sofie Back took a stand against out-of-control celebrities at her London Fashion Week show Sunday night, with an homage to their worst fashion moments. She sent out dresses with apparently torn hemlines and wine stains dripping down the front, skirts with lace G-strings hanging off them and T-shirts with pixilated logos of OK and Heat magazines. "The celebrity obsession has been bothering me for some time now; that photo of Britney Spears in London — with the pixilated crotch — is burnt into my head," said Back. Luckily for her fans and stockists, which include Opening Ceremony in New York and Mameg in Los Angeles, this was just runway posturing. Back in the showroom, she's got gray peacoats and some beautiful jersey garments with ever-so-small details that reference the runway.

BOHINC'S JEWEL BOX: Jeweler Lara Bohinc, who's known for her chunky gold statement necklaces and bracelets, now has a whole treasure trove of a store to call her own. On Sunday, the designer unveiled a bijou shop on London's Sloane Street, which will carry her gold jewelry set with turquoise, diamonds and agate alongside her fashion jewelry, leather handbags, belts and sunglasses. "You can see what my design is about under one roof. I'm very excited," said Bohinc. And the store's decor reflects Bohinc's graphic style, too, with space age, graphite stone units inspired by honeycomb shapes and gold stone floors.

DRIVE-BY COLLECTIONS: Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto will eschew the catwalk when they make their debut as Cacharel's creative directors during Paris Fashion Week later this month. Instead, the duo plans to take the line straight to the shop floor, and mount a static, cocktail-hour presentation of the fall 2008 collection for Cacharel in the label's store on Rue Bonaparte. "Even when people drive past [the window], they'll be able to see the collection in a store setting," said Eley backstage after the Eley Kishimoto show Monday. Could this be a trend?
