NOT SO FAST: Sources said talks between representatives of Renzo Rosso of Diesel and Hedi Slimane took place as recently as this past weekend, but Slimane's people insist no deal has been made — and may never be. Following reports Slimane may be tapped to design Diesel's new Red Collection, one of his representatives told WWD that the former Dior Homme creative director has "no interest at all in Renzo Rosso's group, let alone Diesel."
CAHIERS DU CINEMA: Agnès b. designer Agnès Troublé is no stranger to age discrimination. Introducing Jean-Luc Godard's "Breathless" at the Film Forum in Manhattan last Friday night, she reported that when the film opened in 1960, "I couldn't enter the cinema because [they thought] I was under 18," and the film was deemed too "subversive" for the younger set. Laughing, the designer added, "I showed them pictures of the twins I had just had and they let me in. I was 19." Post-screening, Troublé demurred when asked for her favorite of the auteur's flicks, adding, "I've always loved the vision Godard has [of] women. I did some clothes thinking of Anna Karina this season." But the designer's more than just a cinema buff: she has two film production companies, Love Streams and O'Salvation. "We just produced Harmony Korine's 'Mister Lonely.' I'm a great fan of Harmony's," she said. In addition to executive producing the film, which played at the Tribeca Film Festival this weekend, she whipped up a "Seven Year Itch"-style white halter dress for "Marilyn Monroe," Samantha Morton's character. It is now on display in the window of her SoHo store.
