Lady GaGa’s Holiday Workshop?

Yes, you read that title correctly. Today, Barneys New York kicks the holiday campaign into high gear with a “12 Days of Gaga” countdown and the launch of the microsite. It will allow glimpses into Gaga’s world and debut a product a day from the workshop until its official unveiling, which has been set for Nov. 21 at 11:59 p.m. The workshop will be open through that entire first night and into the next day, closing on Jan. 2. Items will include chocolate “poker face” chips, disco stick lollipops, hair-bow headbands and press-on nails, snowglobes, silver claw Christmas stocking and another 170 GaGa-inspired items.

Barneys will donate 25 percent of all sales in the workshop to the Born This Way Foundation, the charitable program Gaga and her mother launched last week, which aims to empower youth and promote equality through programs on antibullying, self-confidence, mentoring and career development.

Jean Paul Gaultier Brings Eyewear

Jean Paul Gaultier has teamed up with longtime friend and artisan Alain Mikli to launch an eyewear collection set to hit U.S. stores and Mikli boutiques in January. If eyewear enthusiasts can’t wait that long, the funky collection will be on display at the Dallas Museum’s exhibit entitled: “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk,” from today to Feb 12. Retailing for between $285 and $400, the collaboration, which includes 12 eyeglasses and eight sunglasses, will be available for purchase at L’Optique Dallas and at the museum’s gift shop.

The Gaultier exhibition, which premiered in Montreal on June 15, will make its final stop in the U.S. at the de Young Museum in San Francisco in March.

Jason Wu Makes Your Bathroom Fashionable

Jason Wu is expanding from the wardrobe to the powder room for spring. The designer teamed up with faucet brand Brizo to create a suite of products for the bathroom, including a wastebasket, freestanding soap pump, soap dish, drawer knobs and pulls, and a faucet named for the Norse god of wisdom and magic. The Jason Wu for Brizo Odin faucet has the designer’s signature Miss Wu owl emblem on its handle and includes hands-free and touch options to turn on the water. Brizo described the products’ design as combining “sleek Scandinavian design and intricate Baroque detailing.”

“Much like fashion accessories help pull together an outfit, these added pieces complete the look of the home bathroom, allowing homeowners to infuse the collection’s style throughout the space to create one seamless, integrated design,” said Judd Lord, director of industrial design at Brizo.
