April77 No More, Browne’s Baccarat, Karlie Kontinues, And More…

Pour a little out for French denim label April77. The Paris-based line (and record label, incidentally) announced it is shuttering operations, effective immediately. [WWD]

iPad mania is the Apple craze of the moment, but Diane von Furstenberg hasn’t forgotten the iPhone. She’s just released her own hot-pink iPhone/iPod Touch case, available at her stores and emblazoned with her trademark lips. [NY Mag]

The reign of Karlie continues: Kloss (pictured, opening the Fall 2010 Dior ready-to-wear show) has been re-signed as the face of Dior for Fall 2010. [Fashionologie]

WWD sits down with Thom Browne for a chat on moving his show to Paris. Most intriguing: He lets slip that he’s working on a collection of limited-edition Champagne coupes with Baccarat. “It’s just a nice little project I wanted to do, even just for myself, because when I travel I always look for vintage Champagne coupes. It’s similar to how my [signature] suit came about. I decided to produce it instead of looking for it in an antique store,” Browne told the paper. For the man who has everything (except vintage Champagne coupes)! [WWD]

And the Times takes a moment to check in with Paper magazine editor in chief (and 2010 CFDA Eugenia Sheppard Award honoree) Kim Hastreiter as she hobnobs with Madonna and enthuses about all things fashion/art/culture/cool. [NYT]
