In 1971, Roger Hargreaves created a round, orange character with a toothy grin and named him Mr. Tickle. The creature was the first in a series of other Misters and Misses -- 85 in all -- who were featured in books, DVDs, art shows, products and several television series in Britain and the U.S. Now Mr. Men and Little Miss are being relaunched in the U.S., thanks to Sanrio -- the brand behind Hello Kitty -- which acquired the licensing rights...

The coordinator was French and so was the champagne. Tea and petite sandwiches were served on silver. And one of the jackets was selling for $9,950. The occasion was the recent unveiling of Yves Saint Laurent's spring-summer ready-to-wear collection at South Coast Plaza's Rive Gauche boutique and was--because of the designer's prominence and the French coordinator's efforts--more European than many such shows in the county.

It was late in the afternoon, the doughnut supply was down to crumbs and Jellyroll the elephant had had enough. She flapped her ears, stomped her feet and wound her trunk under the neck of the lead actress. Then she nudged her head playfully toward an extra, nearly raking his ears with her foot-long tusks. Finally, after a handful of gummy worms and a few pokes in the rear, Jellyroll was coaxed into holding her head obediently above the actress. "Roll tape," the director yelled.

In the context of feminine youth, there is one rite of passage that seems to lead nowhere. It happens the moment a young girl dives into the ocean and discovers her bikini bottom has slipped south, while its top has shifted west and east. Defiled by the wave, she learns something: Bikinis don't stay on very well in the water. Rather than retreat to the beach, she devises ways in which to move through the elements gracefully without exposing herself.

Although several designers have tried to forge a modern identity for Nina Ricci over the last decade, the French fashion house is still better known for the iconic fragrance L'Air Du Temps (launched in 1948 in the Lalique bottle with glass doves) than for clothes. But the brand's new creative director, Peter Copping, is trying to change that. Copping follows on the heels of Belgian designer Olivier Theyskens, who wowed critics and fashion eccentrics alike with his collections (remember those heel-less fetish shoes?

Monica Kline emerges from a dressing room in Neiman Marcus clad in a salmon-colored Armani pantsuit two sizes too big. "Fabulous," pronounces an attentive saleswoman. Kline's not worried that the suit practically swallows her up. Here at the Armani trunk show, held recently at the Neiman's in Newport Beach, she can order the suit in her customary size 2. That's just one reason Kline prefers to shop trunk shows. Small sizes go fast in the stores, she says.

Designer Rebecca Minkoff is opening her first Los Angeles shop, inside a boutique that helped launch her chic, unfussy leather bags on the West Coast. The New York-based designer will open an 1,800-square-foot shop-in-shop later this month inside Confederacy, the fashion-forward Los Feliz boutique co-owned by Ilaria Urbinati — an early champion of Minkoff's ladylike, playful handbags. The shop is intended to be a regular fixture of the store, not a limited time pop-up. It will occupy the front section of Confederacy's sprawling space (Urbinati is expanding the menswear selection in back)
