Donatella Versace Goes Mad for Mad Men...More Tron Collaborations

The designer loves American television and often has DVDs of shows shipped to her in Milan.

HEY, DUDE: Passersby unaware of Waves, a series of limited edition images by surf photographer and film director Steven Lippman and apparel pieces by Lippman and Ron Herman, might have confused the Ron Herman store in Malibu Thursday night for a gallery during an opening. If they stepped into the store, though, the soulful guitarist playing and the male-dominated crowd, dressed mostly in jeans, T-shirts and baseball caps or beanies atypical for a gallery opening, would have provided hints that something a bit different was going on. One presumably single female guest definitely endorsed the scene. “There are really good pickings. It’s shocking,” she whispered to a girlfriend. Herman and Lippman cooked up the idea for the event, which combined art and fashion, to benefit Save the Waves Coalition, a nonprofit organization that works to preserve the coastline. “There are more and more people that care about the things that bind us together,” said Herman. “We want something more meaningful. We care about the environment.”
