Queen Elizabeth II at the Polo Match

Dannijo Marks Fifth Anniversary With Capsule Collection

Sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder started their jewelry line Dannijo exactly five years ago, and to celebrate the milestone, the two released a limited-edition capsule collection that includes some of their most popular necklaces, earrings and bracelets. The collection comprised of six pieces, a classic gold Etta bib and the best-selling Lovisa earrings re-created in black and white.The range is available exclusively at dannijo.com. The range will retail from $295 to $425, a bit lower than the brand’s average price point. The brand is carried in more than 120 doors worldwide, from Bergdorf Goodman to Holt Renfrew, Harvey Nichols, Matches and Lane Crawford. 

Cartier Hosts Queen’s Cup Tournament

The British stiff upper lip remained fixed on Sunday as a smiling Queen Elizabeth II presented prizes to Lyndon Lea’s victorious team, Zacara, which won the Queen’s Cup Tournament at Guards Polo Club. Guests included Charlotte Casiraghi, Princess Beatrice, Sharon Stone, John Hannah, Colin Salmon, Katherine Jenkins, Thandie Newton and Oona Chaplin, Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter, who is currently starring in “Game of Thrones.” Author Jilly Cooper, meanwhile, dispensed tips on dressing for a polo match: “It’s very tricky….You’ve got the weather to think about, then shoes, of course. High heels can be a mistake, because you’re trying to walk around

and sinking into the ground,” she said, demonstrating the fatal walk — much to everyone’s entertainment.

Palter DeLiso Footwear Makes a Comeback

This fall, footwear brand Palter DeLiso will see its first new collection in more than four decades. After discovering that the previous Palter DeLiso trademark had lain dormant since the early Seventies and expired, Taz Saunders, cofounder and creative director, and Lauren Bruksch, cofounder and president, applied for a new registration. Saunders and Bruksch were originally going to design their own footwear line but after scouring flea markets, vintage stores and e- commerce sites like eBay and Etsy, as well as studying and acquiring vintage samples, the two realized that they kept gravitating towards Palter DeLiso.Prices range from $895 for the Kiss, a black heirloom lace and silver glitter pump with grosgrain trim, to $1,995 for the Stride, a polished lizard skin pump — both constructed from the 110-mm. Dapper last. The Diva, Socialite and Lady — all containing PVC, Plexiglas or Lucite and adorned with Swarovski crystals which retails for $1,895 each.

Glamour’s New Boss

Admittedly the only thing we read in Glamour anymore are the ‘Don’ts’, but rarely that now that they are just celebs. So maybe getting a new boss will be a good thing. Connie Anne Phillips, until recently a star publisher at Time Inc.’s InStyle, is returning to Condé Nast, where she will take over for Bill Wackermann as publisher of Glamour magazine. Phillips spent 14 years at Condé Nast before leaving nearly five years ago for In Style, where ad pages climbed steadily during her tenure.

Phillip Lim Creates New Logo For China

3.1 Phillip Lim decided to go on the offensive rather than give in to ‘a trademark squatter’ in China. So he has a new brand mark for all RTW and shoes sold there. Starting with pre-fall 2013, goods sold in China will be labeled with the newly created brand mark. All other products sold internationally will carry the brand mark with the 3.1 Phillip Lim signature.
