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.

“Tron: Legacy”-mania was in full effect Thursday night, when a six-week pop-up shop launched at Royal/T in Culver City, Calif., dedicated to a slew of limited edition merchandise associated with the movie from the likes of Oakley, Hurley, Adidas, TomTom and shoe designer Jerome Rousseau. James Frain had a long shopping list. “I want the ‘Tron’ mouse. I want the ski boots — not that I ski. They are just fantastic. I’ll put them on a shelf. I’ll probably get the backpack for my son,” said the actor, who plays henchman Jarvis in the film. Rousseau, who described himself as a massive “Tron” fan, had a little difficulty settling on a shoe design that melded the movie’s aesthetic with his own. At first, he said, “Everything I did looked like a sneaker. I felt my label needed something really sexy and not gimmicky.” Olivia Wilde approved of the final result: architectural seven-inch platform heels sculpted out of silver specchio leather, priced at $795 and named for her “Tron: Legacy” character, Quorra. Touching one of the heels, she said, “It is an accurate representation of Quorra, and I’m honored to have it named after her.” Upon hearing those words, Rousseau said he almost fainted.
