The Obamas in Russia... Skipping Paris... Hilfiger's New Pad...

The Russian fashion industry isn’t that wowed by the First Lady, and media coverage of her visit in Moscow was minimal.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION: Tommy Hilfiger is feathering a new nest in anticipation of the birth of a son in a few weeks. Hilfiger and his wife, Dee, are moving into a duplex apartment in the tower of New York’s Plaza Hotel this fall. The 6,000-square-foot apartment, on the top two floors, has sweeping views of both Central Park and Fifth Avenue. Dee is collaborating with interior designer Cindy Rinfret on the decor, which is being designed “with old-world flavor with a modern twist,” said Hilfiger. The space will house the designer’s art collection, as well as the couple’s expanding brood — with four bedrooms, a nursery and a nanny’s room.

Meantime, Hilfiger has another construction project under way. His new Fifth Avenue store, in the former Fortunoff space, will open in September. Hilfiger plans to throw a big opening party at the 20,000-square-foot store right after his fashion show on Sept. 17. “We’ll be closing fashion week and opening a new store,” he said.
