Ne-Yo, Yo... Midtown Move... Halle Berry Bops In...

Ne-Yo, the new face of Macy's Alfani Red collection, talks up the partnership.

MIDTOWN MOVE: Jason Wu, who showed his fall collection at Exit Art on 10th Avenue in February, is going for a more classic — and central — venue this fashion week. On Sept. 11, Wu will present his spring show on the second floor of the St. Regis Hotel. For the first time, Wu also is working with Alex de Batek of Bureau Betak on the show’s production and decor — but don’t expect the White House to inspire the look for one of Michelle Obama’s favorite designers. “For our first collaboration, Alex and I wanted to stage the show in a New York institution that had a distinct personality,” Wu said. “We chose the St. Regis because its original historic decor has been so beautifully preserved and served as the perfect canvas for us to bring totally foreign elements into the space. The stark juxtaposition between the classic and ultramodern represents the brand’s DNA perfectly.”
