JET SET: Attending a barbecue in honor of Corto Moltedo's new Palais Royal gallery space Friday night, Marc Newson disclosed that he has designed a James Bond-style jetpack to be unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show in September. "The idea is that you can use it to fly to your yacht," said Newson, who is to tie the knot with his sweetheart, Charlotte Stockdale, in Hampshire, England, this week.
"[Azzedine] Alaïa has designed a dress for me and a suit for Marc," she gushed. Designer Gabrielecorto Moltedo, meanwhile, said the brand's space will be transformed into a boutique in time for the runway shows in October, stocking one-off designs.
THE SHOE FITS: Kanye West is very much on first-name terms with Louis Vuitton. "I'm here for Louis," drawled the rapper at Paris' Jardins de Bagatelle Friday, disclosing that he's collaborating on a men's shoes line for the brand. He's obviously in a creative mood: West was dressed head to toe in his own designs, and said his women's line will follow for fall.
