What's Another Day for Chloé?... Toledo Time... Timberlake Does Oprah...

Los Angeles-area Chloe devotees anticipating this week's scheduled opening of the long-awaited Melrose Place boutique will have to wait.

RICCI’S SPECIAL EDITION: Nina Ricci’s fall collection got a preview off the runway at London’s Dover Street Market Wednesday night. Customers were invited to preorder pieces from the line — Olivier Theyskens’ parting shot for the house — including the gravity-defying glittery shoes from the label’s fall runway, with suspended heels that seem to float above the floor. Stephen Jones was one of the partygoers who made a beeline to examine the sparkling footwear. And as part of the accessories collection, the house has produced a tote bag that’s exclusive to Dover Street Market. The French blue calf-leather bag, with black leather ribbon details, retails for 1,530 pounds, or $2,210. All the bags’ linings have a plaque engraved with “Dover Street Market,” to mark the collaboration.

BLASS FROM THE PAST: Peacock International Holdings LLC is on the hunt for a new creative director for Bill Blass, which it bought from NexCen for $10 million a few months back. Executives declined comment but are said to be readying to rev up the women’s and men’s collections later this year.
