Giorgio Armani to Hold Signature Men’s Show in June at Storied Via Borgonuovo HQ

HOME SWEET HOME: For the first time in 18 years, Giorgio Armani will show his namesake men’s collection for spring 2020 at his storied headquarters at 11 Via Borgonuovo.
The show is scheduled on June 17 at 5 p.m., closing Milan Men’s Fashion Week, which kicks off on June 14.
Armani took control in 1996 of the stately 17th-century building, Palazzo Orsini, named after the 12th-century family, but in 2001 the designer unveiled offices and his Teatro, designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando on Milan’s Via Bergognone — in a former Nestlé industrial area, and effectively helping to revamp that part of the city.
The Emporio Armani show will be held at the Teatro on June 15 at 11 a.m.
The designer has most recently been experimenting with different formats and venues. Last September, he staged a coed Emporio Armani show at Milan’s Linate Airport — at the Hangar where the imposing Emporio Armani billboard has been placed since 1996. That was the first time a fashion show was held at that site and it was followed by a Robbie Williams concert.
In February, for the first time, Armani held a coed show for his signature line at Silos, the exhibition space he opened in 2015, opposite the

Bicester Village Celebrates Ethical Indian Fashion With Latest Pop-up

LONDON — Bicester Village is highlighting creativity, craftsmanship and ethical fashion for its latest pop-up, Celebrating India. Opening Friday and running until May 29, the pop-up not only showcases fashion labels from Manish Arora and Behno, but jewelry and lifestyle products, too.
The boutique has been overseen by Sujata Assomull, contributing editor of Vogue India, who said she wanted to “give a taste of everything that is designed in India,” from fashion and home to jewelry and shawls, the staples of Indian fashion.
“That was really important to us because India has such a vast repertoire. We also wanted to show that Indian fashion is in fact very global, it’s not costume-y and just saris. Indian fashion has really progressed,” said Assomull.
Designers echoed that sentiment.
“What I’m thrilled about is finally the recognition of the creativity of the designers in India, which is so filled with imagination that draws from something so traditional but is also really relevant to a global audience,” she said.
Shivam Punjya, founder of Behno, is also excited to show a different side of Indian fashion. “People don’t necessarily equate Indian fashion with minimalism. We’re a country that’s so known for its intricate beadwork, and for me it’s how I

Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2019

This big, bold collection drew on the industrial north of England, Fifties ballrooms and Eighties punks, with debutante styles strolling alongside tailored, mannish silhouettes. Eveningwear was a hybrid of punk and couture, with fat bunches of tulle sprouting from under the full sleeves of silk, rose-printed tops and double duchess satin dresses with raw, frayed edges. Those dresses were often slashed, with uneven hemlines and bejeweled safety pins, or tough leather belts at the waist. Other dresses glittered with crystal chandelier style adornments or garlands of diamanté jewelry, while slimmer styles were spliced together from wool silk and thick satin.
Daywear was done in sturdy English fabrics, as in a hybrid coat that was part houndstooth, part double duchess silk, while suits came as peg leg trousers paired with jackets that had trompe-l’oeil double lapels. Other wool jackets had built-in, corset-style belts or big flourishes of fabric flaring from one side, while a trench was a patchwork of white gabardine and black–and-white Prince of Wales check. Shapely knit dresses, tops and skirts were modeled on Fifties corsetry styles, while leathers came in a dramatic claret trench or black skirt suit with short, bell-like sleeves.

What’s next after the biggest television show of all time?
After eight seasons of bloodshed, plot twists and dragons, the hit HBO series, “Game of Thrones,” is reaching its conclusion with the finale airing Sunday night.

Over the years, WWD has sat down with a number of actors from the show, including fan favorites Robb Stark and Grey Worm. Read on for some memorable quotes from cast members on what’s next after “Game of Thrones.”

Dsquared2, Drake’s OVO Collaborate on Capsule

TEAM CANADA: Dsquared2 has teamed with October’s Very Own, the lifestyle brand founded by Canadian musician Drake with entrepreneur Oliver El-Khatib and longtime producer Noah “40” Shebib, on a men’s capsule collection.
In particular, Dsquared2 founders and creative directors Dean and Dan Caten reworked the OVO signature logo, which, instead of featuring the usual owl, shows two owls — an homage to the idea of duplicity rooted in the Canadian-Italian label, actually established and managed by the Caten twins.
The two owls, combined with the graphic Dsquared2 logo, embellish a range of urban pieces, spanning from a dark indigo jacket, medium blue jeans, a gray hoodie with coordinated fleece track pants, T-shirts, as well as a beanie and a baseball cap.

“We have this intuitive cultural understanding between us, we are all from Toronto, Canada power, working with Drake was like creating with the third D, D cubed to the power of three,” said Dean Caten. “We feel that collaborations unify forces from different industries, whether it is fashion or music, coming together is the way to go,” added Dan Caten.

Happy Socks Founders Open Creative Hub in L.A., Tout U.S. Expansion

The novelty sock wars are heating up.
Just up the freeway from San Clemente, Calif.-based Stance, which has collaborated on limited-edition styles with Rihanna, the NBA, the Grateful Dead and most recently with singer Billie Eilish, another multimillion-dollar sock brand has moved to town.
Happy Socks founders Mikael Söderlindh and Viktor Tell established their brand in Stockholm 2008, but since last August have been spreading sock love from Los Angeles, where they recently planted roots with a new store-meets-creative hub on Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake.
“We have done so many collaborations with celebrities and now we can meet them here instead of a huge office,” said Söderlindh, president of the socks-to-lifestyle brand that has paired with Snoop Dogg, Iris Apfel, Wiz Khalifa, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones among others, and most recently launched Happy Socks swimwear with David Hasselhoff.

“We wanted to feel creative again,” Tell, the brand’s creative director, said of the move and the opening of the new office, which will be used to identify local talent for capsule collections.

Jonathan Simkhai Resort 2020

On Monday, a year and a half after Jonathan Simkhai first visited Sydney’s Bondi Beach on vacation, he returned to the birthplace of surf lifesaving to present his resort 2020 collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.
Staged at sunset at the North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club, one of Australia’s oldest surf clubs, which was founded in 1906 and reopened in 2013 after a modernist do-over by Sydney architectural firm Durbach Block Jaggers, the show and collection were inspired by what Simkhai calls the “magic hour.”
“When you’re with someone you love and it’s 5 o’clock and the sun’s setting and the person you’re with, their face is glowing and you have a drink in hand and you’re having the best time,” he explained backstage after the show. “I thought how can I make a woman feel like she can put her dress on and be in that moment?”
The answer apparently was via a skin-tight, blush pink napa leather flight suit, which was the collection’s departure point. This was followed by a series of leather wrap skirts, baggy trousers and sexy bralettes with criss-cross straps and tough chic hardware in tan, mustard and black and a jacquard jersey section featuring hand-painted “chain”

Camera Nazionale della Moda Brings Emerging Fashion Designers to New York

The younger face of Italian fashion will be on display with a special one-day exhibition on Friday at New York’s High Line landmark.
Organized by the Italian fashion chamber’s Camera Club initiative aimed at promoting up-and-coming labels, the exhibit, called “Borders: A Flash of New Italian Fashion,” collects the signature pieces — to be showcased on biodegradable mannequins produced by Bonaveri — of four Italian emerging brands, including M1992, Magliano, United Standard and Vitelli Maglieria Italiana.
The outfits will be immersed into an engaging environment of video projections, tubes, neon and LED lights. In particular, the exhibit will include a video shot in Apulia by emerging film director Francesco Petroni, as well as audio installations by United Standard’s Giorgio Di Salvo, Vitelli Maglieria Italiana’s Mauro Simionato and M1992’s Dorian Stefano Tarantini — all of them dividing their time between fashion and music.
“When the Consulate General of Italy and the Italian Trade Commission proposed we organize something in New York, we immediately had the idea to do something disruptive, different from what people might have expected,” said Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana president Carlo Capasa. “We wanted to showcase a different face of Italy, young and fresh, which could give an idea of

Micky Onvural has walked an unconventional path to the top post at Bonobos. She spent most of her career in marketing at brands such as Kellogg’s, eBay and Trulia. But Bonobos founder Andy Dunn saw something in the U.K. native that made him tap her in 2016 to serve as chief marketing officer for the men’s wear brand he founded in 2007. With the company’s acquisition by Walmart Inc. in 2017 and Dunn’s new role as head of digital brands for the mega-retailer, Onvural stepped up to chief executive officer.
Here, the mother of three talks about how her background has helped Bonobos evolve, particularly in terms of its out-of-the-box marketing campaigns; her management style, and how she balances work and family.

Chanel Cruise 2020

The invitation for Chanel’s cruise show was printed on a plain white card — symbolizing, perhaps, the blank page facing artistic director Virginie Viard as she prepared to write the next chapter in the history of the house that had been synonymous with Karl Lagerfeld for 36 years.
Guests arriving at the Grand Palais found a similarly low-key ambiance inside the venue. Its soaring steel-and-glass roof all but dwarfed the set, a retro train station where guests sat on wooden benches under signs bearing the names of cities that resonate in Chanel lore: Venice, Saint-Tropez, Rome or Edinburgh, among them.
An impulse kicked in to make a pun: All aboard the Chanel Express! But the space lacked the joyful effervescence of Lagerfeld’s bombastic sets, which invited guests to preen for selfies and journalists to conjure clichés about rocketships, icebergs, cruise liners or whatever phantasmagorical vision he dreamt up for the season.
“It’s very minimal,” one editor soberly observed. The press kit offered the first hint of change. A booklet, printed on glossy paper, featured images shot by Karim Sadli, marking the first time since 1987 that a photographer other than Lagerfeld had lensed the collection.
In it, hints of a lighter, more streamlined take

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Met Musing

Three-plus hours of witty banter are a lot to take. Three-plus hours of un-witty banter are interminable. That reality made watching the Met Gala red carpet on E! tough going. There was just too much space between major arrivals, and the four off-site commentators — Giuliana Rancic, Brad Goreski, Zanna Roberts and Elaine Welteroth — could only give so many rounds of applause for this or that person’s contribution to the culture before the applause rang hollow.
But of course, the red-carpet viewing experience is about more than killing time between arrivals. At some point, the annual Met Gala crossed over from the dressed-up, elite-party opening of a major museum exhibit to the head-spinning, elite costume-party opening of a major museum exhibit. There’s a significant difference between the two. The former was a genuine celebration of fashion, the only high-profile place where the best, purest fashion — the most dramatic, flamboyant, outré — could have a moment of glorious exposure, where designers and fashion-loving, A-list celebrities could flaunt it without fear of the Monday-morning reprisal that greets Oscar ladies deemed by mass public opinion to have gone too far.
Back then, the Met Ball was a fashion crowd dressing in real fashion

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Los Angeles artist Sterling Ruby gave away little about the ready-to-wear label he’s set to launch in June during a breakfast for the upcoming Pitti Uomo save for one detail: the dark denim pair of jeans he was wearing from S.R. Studio. LA. CA., which he paired with a black hoodie.
The only other hint that’s been stated publicly in an announcement on the collection is it is to serve as a reinterpretation of American workwear.
The L.A. artist is a special guest of the trade show, presenting his first apparel collection — some 10 years in the making — at a June 13 event.
Ruby stood before media and other guests just ahead of breakfast being served.
“I’ve been interested in making clothes…for some time and most of it has been just kind of a private endeavor,” he said. “For the most part, it’s been something very internal. But over the last 10 years, I’ve started to understand the desire and the reasons why I was doing this to begin with, and I also started to work with people in the fashion industry, in the garment industry, from both owners of big luxury houses to the youngest designers.”

Tiffany & Co. Brings Pop-up Café Concept to Beverly Hills

BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S: Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Box Café concept makes its way for a brief stint in Beverly Hills this weekend.
The company said the temporary café marks its first pop-up café in North America and marked the occasion Friday morning with a breakfast hosted by Zoe Saldana.
The café pop-up, dubbed The Tiffany Café at Beverly Hills, will serve breakfast Saturday and Sunday and is modeled off the New York store’s The Blue Box Café, which bowed in 2017.
“Our flagship in Beverly Hills provided the perfect opportunity to introduce the brand’s first pop-up dining experience, and its unique execution speaks to the wit and creativity of Tiffany for our clients in this important market,” Tiffany & Co. chief artistic officer Reed Krakoff told WWD in a prepared statement.

The Tiffany Café was built out on the Rodeo Drive store’s patio. The company also set up a complimentary coffee cart within the Via Rodeo luxury shopping district running along Rodeo Drive.
Krakoff had earlier said in an announcement on the coming café that it serves as “a new take on what it means to be a luxury brand

Prada Resort 2020

“Simplicity is rebellion.”
So said Miuccia Prada during a preview of the resort collection she showed on Thursday night. Prada referred specifically to the clothes, which she described as “naïve, cotton, simple,” but the thought extended to the event itself. At a moment when, in the luxury sweepstakes for sales and social media attention, her primary competition rents out major world monuments and airline terminals, Prada preferred to show at home. Or at one of her homes. In this case, her brand’s New York headquarters on 52nd Street overlooking the Hudson River. “I like to do the shows in my own spaces,” she said.
Yet while Prada may reject (for now at least) the kind of extravagant wanderlust of her competitors, this was no quiet little soiree. A star-studded guest list including Elle Fanning, Shailene Woodley, Uma Thurman, Naomi Watts, Joel Edgerton, Anderson Paak, Hailee Steinfeld, Marc Jacobs, Char Defrancesco and Sofia Coppola turned out, many reveling through four stages of festivities: boisterous pre-show cocktail, show, post-show informal dinner, after party.
Simple in its open concept and egalitarian flow — OK. Low-key — definitely not, offering an Instagrammable someone or something at every turn. Within that framework, Prada presented a lineup she characterized as simple

Dennis Basso Opens First Store in Qatar

An outdoor plaza shopping center anchored by Galeries Lafayette is the home to Dennis Basso’s first store in Doha.
Basso’s 1,800-square-foot unit is near the Cartier, Graff and Van Cleef & Arpels boutiques. Back in New York, the designer said Friday that he hopes this first store will lead to others in the Midde East. The opening was made possible through the Ali Bin Ali Holding company. Designed by Ali Bin Ali’s in-house team, Basso said the decor consists of a range of cream-colored interiors with pale gray marble and vaulted high ceilings. It is also a corner store, which allows for greater visibility, enhanced by the valet car service offered near the store’s entrance.
One of the greatest features from the designer’s point of view is the outdoor air conditioning provided by cool air that is blasted upward through grates. While Qatari woman generally wear abayas and head scarves on the street, their attire tends to be more colorful or embellished when at home, at special events or traveling. “When they’re going to a gala, they really want to be gala,” Basso said, adding that his collection was well-received at the launch, which included a dinner and an in-store event.

American Apparel Pulls Back on Los Angeles Store Plans — for Now

LOS ANGELES — American Apparel has tabled plans to reenter retail via a Los Angeles store as it focuses on continuing the momentum within other areas of its business.
The company continues to still have a leasehold on the Melrose Avenue location where it intended to open the store.
“We’ve been really focused on solidifying the brand’s e-commerce B2C web site and platform, expanding its reach to over 220 countries around the world,” said Garry Bell, vice president of corporate marketing and communications at American Apparel parent Gildan Activewear Inc. “These initiatives allowed us to substantially increase sales online year-over-year and we look forward to keep[ing] the momentum going.”
Bell went on to say growing the company’s imprintables business in England, Europe, Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand is also an area of focus.
The store isn’t off the table and “as we continue to assess other opportunities, we will reviews the plans for the store,” Bell said.
Gildan’s acquisition of the American Apparel business, which filed for bankruptcy twice in less than two years’ time, included the company’s intellectual property and some inventory. The chain of stores were left off the negotiating table, largely seen as a drain on the business at the time.

Busy Philipps, Irene Neuwirth and Peter Pilotto Celebrate Capitol L.A. Opening

“Forget Coachella — Ren Faire, that’s the only way I want to dress. Mark my words, it’s the next thing,” said Busy Philipps, nodding approvingly at Capitol boutique founder Laura Vinroot Poole dressed like a fair maiden in a Peter Pilotto square-neck liquid organza gown, a blonde braid wrapped around her head.
Philipps took time off her late-night talk show “Busy Tonight” to join Poole and L.A. jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth to celebrate their newest venture — the opening of an outpost of the Charlotte, N.C.-based Capitol boutique at the Brentwood Country Mart. The Peter Pilotto designers came over to L.A. to join the festivities, hosting a pre-dinner trunk show at the store, which has a shop-in-shop full of Neuwirth’s nature-inspired fine jewelry.

Men’s Brands Jump Into Sustainability Efforts

Like many things in men’s wear, it often takes a bit longer for a trend to take hold than it does in women’s wear. Sustainability has been no exception. But now, most men’s brands and retailers are all in.
While some men’s designers, such as Christopher Raeburn, were early adopters, others are just now jumping on board. According to Cara Smyth, vice president of Glasgow Caledonian New York College and founder of the Fair Fashion Center sustainability program, those in the outdoor industry were among the first to embrace the movement due to their ties to nature. But the movement has since spread to a variety of men’s wear brands.
“Many men’s brands are interested in sustainability as it provides operating efficiencies that reduce impacts and reflect the values of the brand to both consumers and even investors where applicable,” she said.
So whether it’s PVH’s goal to generate zero waste, or Perry Ellis’ new solar panel installation project at its distribution center in Seneca, S.C., companies big and small have gotten on board.
Here is a closer look at some of the brands leading the way in men’s wear.

49 Unforgettable Met Gala Red-Carpet Looks

With only weeks to go, designers and A-list stars are heading into crunch time before the 2019 Met Gala.
While the Met Gala has a 71-year history of producing the most over-the-top high-fashion red carpets , this year’s theme, “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” should result in a particularly unexpected red-carpet scene. Met Gala alum such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Blake Lively and Rihanna are famous for taking the theme head-on. Rihanna for one, all but broke the Internet in 2015 when the red carpet had to be cleared so she could take those iconic steps wearing a yellow, fur-lined Guo Pei cape with a seemingly miles-long train — and let’s not forget her 2018 look for the  “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Image” exhibit: fashion pope.
Before “camp” comes upon us on May 6, WWD is looking back at 49 unforgettable Met Gala looks, from Princess Diana’s risqué John Galliano Dior slipdress to Kim Kardashian’s much-memed Givenchy gown with affixed gloves. Click the gallery above to see them all.

The Reracs RTW and Men’s Fall 2019

Name: The Reracs
Main message: With her inaugural show during Tokyo Fashion Week, Naomi Kurahashi displayed just how to present classic pieces on a runway without boring the audience: make sure to have plenty of variety, use beautiful textiles, keep the pace quick, and employ inventive styling choices. The brand lived up to its profile, which says that it’s “backed by quality and practicality,” but proved that it has so much more to offer.
The collection was made up of variations on a pretty basic theme: straight-legged or relaxed, jogger-style trousers paired with V-neck sweaters or just about any kind of outerwear imaginable, all turned out in neutral tones of gray, black, navy, white and beige. But the superior construction and luxurious textiles elevated the collection beyond simple classics, with suiting material showing a drape resembling that of matte jersey, and a black pleather poncho turning more heads than it would have if it had been made from animal skin. The fabrics were so beautiful on their own that there was no need for flashy prints, but occasional flashes of Fair Isle, argyle or checked patterns kept things interesting.
The result: Kurahashi has been designing The Reracs for nearly a decade, but proved

Wardrobe Teams Up With Gregory Hotel in New York

Wardrobe, the peer-to-peer digital marketplace to rent women’s and men’s clothing and accessories from people’s closets, has struck a fashion and sustainability partnership with The Gregory Hotel in New York. This is the first hotel partnership launch for Wardrobe.
The way it works is prior or during a stay at The Gregory at 42 West 35th Street, hotel guests can reserve items from the Wardrobe app, and the items will be delivered to them at their hotel room for the duration of their stay.

As a hotel we are trying to showcase more sustainable and mindful ideas from hosting an Earth Day event with @insteadofmovement and hosting mindful events including a gallery featuring the work of jewelry designer Ariana Ost.”

Shazam! Movie: Explaining the History of [Spoilers]

FULL SPOILERS ahead for Shazam!

In what seemed like the kind of plot development that might be saved for a sequel, Shazam! totally went there and introduces the entire Shazam Family in its third act — the Shazamily! But who exactly are the Shazam Family — formerly known as the Captain Marvel Family — and what’s their history? Let’s break it down…

The Shazam Family are part of a long trend of superhero “families” like the Batman Family and the Superman Family, except these guys were basically the originals: an entire squadron of superhero sidekicks sporting very similar powers and costumes to the main hero.

The most recognizable members of the group, beyond the Big Red Cheese himself, are Captain Marvel, Jr. and Mary Marvel. Their names, of course, date back to an era when Shazam! was still known as Captain Marvel, and indeed, wasn’t even a DC Comics character yet. (Get the full story on Shazam’s complicated history here.) First appearing in Fawcett Comics’ Whiz Comics #25 (December 1941) and Captain Marvel Adventures #18 (December 1942), respectively, Captain Marvel Jr. and Mary Marvel are the powered-up versions of Freddy Freeman and Mary Batson.

Hypebeast Knows There’s a Big Online Appetite for Luxury Brands

People like to be informed about luxury brands, whether or not they can afford them.
Huan Nguyen, vice president of brand partnerships at Hypebeast, said traffic and engagement at the streetwear-focused site grew considerably between 2015 and 2018 in content that mentioned brands like Dior, Gucci and Louis Vuitton — all of which have had some kind of major crossover with streetwear in recent years. The site increased such posts to nearly 400 from 100, saw average page views per item increase to 15,000 from 12,000 and average engagement time double to two minutes from one.
As far as Nguyen is concerned, this is as good a sign as any of “how streetwear and luxury have been best friends for quite some time,” as he put it. He used a gif from “Lady and the Tramp” of the characters smooching over pasta to drive the point home.
“The idea is that this audience isn’t necessarily the guy you see on the corner rocking head-to-toe Supreme,” Nguyen added. “Sometimes they’re just in front of their computer doing their thing, but they know a ton about the brands out there.”

Milly Talking to Would-be Investors

Milly is checking its options.
The contemporary brand is said to be struggling with a cash crunch and slower sales and is in talks with multiple potential investors, according to several sources.
One source familiar with the process said at least one of the buyers was “nontraditional.” That’s in keeping with general trends in the dealmaking market, where many of the usual buyers for fashion brands have been burned by deals in the past and are steering clear of them or being very choosy.
It’s an opportunity that’s brought some new names to the sector, for instance, Mudrick Capital Management, a distressed-debt specialist that last year took a stake in Proenza Schouler.
Milly was founded by creative director Michelle Smith and her husband and brand president Andrew Oshrin in 2001. But the two are now said to be in the midst of a divorce, complicating the picture at the company.
There have been several warning signs from the company this year.
Milly opted not to stage a runway show during New York Fashion Week in February. It was also sued in New York state court last month by public relations and marketing specialist HL Group, which claimed it was owed $ 113,000 in retainer and consulting fees

Mistergentleman Men’s Fall 2019

Name: Mistergentleman
Main message: Always one of the bright spots during Tokyo Fashion Week, Takeshi Osumi and Yuichi Yoshii’s men’s brand mixed easy tailoring with streetwear, outdoor and women’s wear influences for fall. Models walked the grass-like carpeted runway in retro, relaxed snakeskin print suits paired with satin double-breasted shirts and neckerchiefs, or velvet pants with roomy overcoats. The more casual looks included dad jeans, hooded sweatshirts and duck canvas jackets, all in neutral shades of gray, brown, khaki and black, interspersed with pops of purple, green and orange.
Osumi and Yoshii played with proportions, shrinking trenches and puffer jackets into crop tops and styling them over wool coats and loose sweaters. Moto, letterman and toggle jackets were chopped up into bib-like pieces and layered over outerwear, while a series of coats and jackets were cut from two contrasting fabrics: olive corduroy and gray wool flannel, or plush fleece with the same snake print from earlier pieces. Subtle feminine touches came in the form of silk scarves worn as belts over coats, and a handful of equestrian print jackets and shifts. The brand also debuted its latest collaboration products, including quilted bags made with Outdoor Products and a black satin bomber designed

Levi’s Taps Hailey Bieber as the First Face of 501 Jeans

Levi’s is betting big on Bieber, Hailey Bieber.
The American denim giant, which launched its initial public offering on March 21, sending shares soaring, has tapped the model/influencer as the first face of its most iconic product, Levi’s 501s. The Hailey Bieber for Levi’s 501 campaign launches today, just ahead of festival season, and will continue to roll out through May 20 to mark the date when the original riveted blue jeans were patented 146 years ago.
Campaign images feature Bieber wearing Levi’s styles she has customized with her name and hints of neon, including the original 501, the 501 skinny and 501 shorts.
“I’ve been wearing 501 cutoffs since I can remember..they make me feel like me,” said Bieber, who confessed that the first pair of Levi’s she ever had she stole from her dad. “I still wear them today.” 
“Hailey has been wearing our icons, Levi’s 501s and 501 shorts and trucker jackets, without us having to ask her to. She’s a real authentic fan,” said Jennifer Sey, chief marketing officer of Levi Strauss and Co.

Haspel to Celebrate 110th Anniversary With Vintage Capsule

It was 110 years ago when Joseph Haspel Sr. created a suit out of an unusual puckered Indian fabric called seersucker that could hold up to the New Orleans heat and still look good.
Fast forward to today, and Laurie Haspel Aronson, the great granddaughter of Haspel and chief executive officer of the family-owned business, is celebrating that milestone with a special vintage capsule collection, a retail partnership and a number of parties and pop-ups that kick off for spring and will continue throughout the year.
“We’re bringing the roots back to New Orleans,” said Aronson, who is headquartered in nearby Baton Rouge, La. “It’s in our DNA and part of our brand strategy.”
To that point, Haspel has partnered with Rubensteins, the venerable men’s store in New Orleans, to sell the entire spring collection in its Canal Street store. In 2017, Haspel moved from a wholesale model to direct-to-consumer. Rubensteins is its only retail account.
This past weekend, the two companies teamed for a two-day trunk show to celebrate the start of the festival season in New Orleans with an event benefiting the Jewish Children’s Regional Service. In addition, Haspel will be a sponsor of the French Quarter Festival, a Louisiana-skewed music event,

Cinoh RTW and Men’s Fall 2019

Name: Cinoh
Main message: Takayuki Chino has been heading his own brands for over a decade, but as one of the winners of the 2019 Tokyo Fashion Award, he staged a runway show for the first time this season. With it, he showed his audience just why Cinoh has reached levels of popularity that many Tokyo brands can only hope for, being carried by top retailers across Japan.
The designer showed a relaxed, slightly disheveled sophistication. A leopard print, plush fleece pantsuit and long, fringed straight skirts for women shared the runway with men’s suits that were reimagined with pullovers in the place of button-front jackets. Long satin dresses, pleather overalls, fuzzy knits and easy fit trousers were given a subtle injection of Nineties grunge when paired with oversize plaid jackets and shirts. The theme was also hinted at in the show’s soundtrack, which included an instrumental backing track of Nirvana’s 1991 hit “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
The result: With equal parts elegance and comfort, it was a collection that will surely resonate with Tokyo’s fashion-forward youth, without alienating older consumers.

Sunnei Helps Children Fight Autism With Creativity

MILAN — In conjunction with the international World Autism Awareness Day, Sunnei is launching on Tuesday a limited-edition capsule collection of unisex T-shirts.
With only 100 available, the T-shirts feature five graphics reproducing the drawings by a group of children supported by Il Cerchio Colorato, a social cooperative focused on helping those kids affected by autism. In particular, last May Sunnei organized a workshop at Il Cerchio Colorato’s headquarters, where children had the chance to express their creativity by decorating with watercolors and markers a Sunnei T-shirt featuring the graphic of a smartphone.
Among the T-shirts selected, Sunnei creative directors Simone Rizzo and Loris Messina chose five graphics, including one showing the North American continent and another with a boat.
“The main idea behind this initiative was to develop a creative project involving these young kids,” said Rizzo, underling that Sunnei has traditionally embraced a “lively attitude to develop serious things.” In addition, Rizzo added that Sunnei, through initiatives like this one, also likes to “bring a touch of humanity to the business, doing something with meaning and leaving a tangible mark.”
