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.

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

CEO Talks: Bonobos’ Micky Onvural Takes Unique Marketing Approach to C-suite

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.

Micky Onvural: I started my career at L’Oréal in the U.K., running hair coloring brands. From there I went to Kellogg’s and did kids’ cereal.

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

Sterling Ruby: Pitti Uomo a ‘No Brainer’ to Debut Collection

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.

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.

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.

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.”
There may not be a direct link between Hypebeast traffic and a brand’s sales, but

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. Indeed, shortly after marrying last fall, she made headlines for wearing an oversize Levi’s trucker jacket customized with the name “Bieber,” confirming the news.

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.”

Mytheresa Expands Into Men’s Wear, Taps Chris Kyvetos

LONDON — Munich-based retailer Mytheresa is adding men’s wear to its offer and bringing Sneakerboy founder Chris Kyvetos to be its new buying director of men’s wear.
Kyvetos, a serial entrepreneur who founded the Australian chain of concept showrooms selling high-end and mass market sneakers via iPad, will be tasked with building a new dedicated men’s wear team and developing the retailer’s market strategy for the category.
Kyvetos is also the buyer and franchise partner of Balenciaga in Australia and previously served as a consultant at Stylebop, another Munich-based e-commerce site. In addition to Sneakerboy, which Kyvetos has opened to resellers as of late and developed as a space where “kids sell shoes to each other,” he has also been planning the launch of his own sneaker line, Athletic Footwear, as well as the opening of a new China atelier that will champion ethical and transparent footwear manufacturing.
For Mytheresa, hiring Kyvetos and moving into men’s wear was the next step, following on from the strong growth of the company’s women’s wear business and expansion into kids’ wear last year. “Men’s wear will be a natural expansion for Mytheresa and represents a significant business opportunity going forward.

Urban Decay Reveals ‘Game of Thrones’-Themed Makeup Collection

As any die-hard “Game of Thrones” fan knows, winter is coming. Now, so too is the popular franchise’s first makeup collection.
The hit HBO series has teamed with Urban Decay for a makeup line inspired by the show’s Seven Kingdoms and women of Westeros. The collection gives a nod to many elements of the show, including Emilia Clarke’s “Mother of Dragons” character and the houses of Targaryen, Lannister and Stark.
In a dramatized video featuring the “Game of Thrones” much-loved intro music, Urban Decay revealed today on its Instagram the full 13-piece collection, which will be released on April 14, the same day the show returns to HBO for its eighth and final season.

Nobuyuki Matsui Men’s Fall 2019

Name: Nobuyuki Matsui
Main message: The first clue that Nobuyuki Matsui’s first Tokyo Fashion Week outing was going to be something unusual was the invitation: a small cardboard box holding a single air pillow, on which details of the show were printed. When audience members arrived, they were asked to step over the back of long benches in order to reach their seats. The long, narrow runway was strewn with air packaging, some filled with goose down, which popped under the models’ feet, adding a strange kind of percussion to the soundtrack.
Some of the clothes also incorporated the pillow-like pouches, which were tied with strings to coats or stuffed inside a tan leather vest that was cut to look like another form of packaging material. But the concept didn’t run through the entire collection, and some looks of simple pants and shirts felt bland and unimaginative. More interesting was Matsui’s modern take on tailoring, which included pullover vests and suits with exposed stitching, contrast fabrics, and trousers that were either cropped or cinched with belts at the ankle.
The result: The collection showed ingenuity and a fresh take on some men’s wear staples, but it was inconsistent and would have benefited from

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Leggings Aren’t the Problem

Dear ND Mom Maryann White,
I admire your guts. If, when my daughter was in college, I’d written and signed a letter along the lines of the one you wrote this week, “The Legging Problem,” only her pragmatic consideration of the next semester’s tuition would have prevented our permanent estrangement. I admire you setting the example for your sons of having the courage of your convictions, and being unafraid to publicly voice an opinion that you surely knew would result in a hashtag heyday of negative response and mockery.
I agree with you that clothing sends messages. After decades of working in fashion, I believe in the power of clothes as a conduit of self-expression in general and at a given moment. Look at the two women here. Each wears an outfit that sends a specific, non-accidental message. To pretend otherwise is ridiculous.
Yet to state that sometimes people, both women and men, choose a particular look because it’s sexy is a dicey enterprise in our modern world, particularly when talking about women’s fashion choices in the #MeToo era. Such acknowledgment is often twisted by critics to suggest that the person stating the obvious is trumpeting the old, warped viewpoint that inappropriate male

STREET SIGNS: Renowned Retools, Reemerges Ready for Future

All it takes is one item to help propel a brand forward. John Dean knows that feeling well.
The founder and chief executive officer of Los Angeles-based streetwear brand Renowned started his company when he was still in Ohio in high school, selling a $ 10 shirt with a somewhat crudely drawn “Renowned” on it. It wasn’t until a T-shirt he sent to Chris Brown’s stylist ended up being worn by Brown on the cover of Nylon in 2013 that the brand gained notoriety.
“I didn’t know how the game worked where brands send boxes and boxes of clothes to celebrities,” Dean said. “I sent one T-shirt. I didn’t know any better, but he wore it on the cover of Nylon. It really caused a spark. We went from not knowing what wholesale was to being in 20 stores.”
He ultimately decided to stop studying business marketing his junior year of college, opting instead to drive four days to Los Angeles to focus on building his business. Brown continued to wear Renowned and, in 2015, the two teamed for the rapper’s “Between the Sheets” tour, for which Dean designed all the merchandise, in addition to Brown’s onstage pieces.

Postelegant RTW and Men’s Fall 2019

Name: Postelegant
Main message: One of the six winners of the 2019 Tokyo Fashion Award, Yuya Nakata’s fledgling brand (established only two years ago) aims to make “timeless modern wear with the best materials and details.” For the brand’s first collection shown on the runway, it did just that. The silhouettes were classic and refined, including different cuts of long coats, tailored trousers and calf-length dresses. And while they were beautifully cut to move with the body, it was the fabrics that set them apart from simple basics. Wool blends in sky blue and red, ribbed knits in the perfect shade of medium gray, a fine, bone-colored twill, and a trio of cloths all in dusty pink all begged a second look.
The result: A newcomer on the Tokyo fashion scene, Nakata proved himself as one to watch with a collection that went beyond elegant to something new and undeniably modern.

EXCLUSIVE: Pharrell Williams Features in Short Film for Chanel Collaboration

PARIS — Pharrell Williams has been a Chanel model, film star, composer and brand ambassador. This week, he will make his debut in his new role as codesigner of a capsule collection with the French luxury brand that is set to bow exclusively on Thursday at the opening of Chanel’s first flagship boutique in Seoul.
To mark the launch, Williams has stepped in front of the camera again for a short film featuring a gang of women and men on a nocturnal road trip, dressed in the rainbow outfits of the Chanel-Pharrell collection — think sweatshirts with embroidered graffiti, terry-cloth bucket hats and oodles of rhinestone jewelry.
In behind-the-scenes footage shared exclusively with WWD, the multihyphenate explained the process that brought him together with the late Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s creative director for 36 years, starting with their sneaker launch at the now-defunct Paris concept store Colette in 2017.
“This campaign and this film are about a capsule collection, something that they’ve never done in the history of the brand. They do that not with a designer, but with a musician with ambition and dreams,” Williams said.

Tailored Brands Needs Major Overhaul to Improve Results

Tailored Brands managed to reverse year-ago losses in the fourth quarter, but is still struggling with a serious slowdown in sales, one that is going to require a major transformation to improve.
“This is not business as usual and we are not accepting the status quo,” Dinesh Lathi, executive chairman, said on an analysts’ call Wednesday afternoon.
Lathi said the company needs to change — and quickly — to offer more personalized products and services, a better omnichannel experience and fewer promotions in favor of more “brand stories.”
Lahti was highly critical of former management, saying the company’s issues have “roots in a degree of historical under-investment and [inability to keep] pace with an evolving customer.”
He said the company does “some things well, but we have considerable work to do in order to be considered great. There are examples where we have relied on [our market position] instead of investing to build on our leading position in the category.”
Lahti slipped into the top slot at the company last year upon the retirement of former chief executive officer Doug Ewert. Although a ceo search is ongoing, sources expect Lahti will eventually be named to the position.

British Fashion Council Expands China Partnerships Strategy With Ontimeshow

LONDON — The British Fashion Council is expanding its China partnerships strategy with Ontimeshow, one of Shanghai’s largest trade shows, to promote British brands during Shanghai Fashion Week later this month. They will also host a series of events with key industry partners, WWD has learned. An announcement is expected today.
The project is part of the BFC’s China partnership strategy, which was revealed in September and aims to help British designer businesses access the Chinese market. The organization is supporting talent through networking, content and access partnerships and business support.

Galvan RTW Fall 2019

“It’s kind of funny when you think about seasons anymore because what’s winter for someone is summer for another,” described Galvan’s Katherine Holmgren. ”There’s always so much travel in-between different locations and climates and temperatures.” Having an international customer who shops in varying climates, the team from Galvan looked to their creative director, Sola Harrison’s, recent trip to Bali to infuse a wintery jungle theme into their fall lineup. Lush green leafy hues ran throughout — simply sophisticated in floor-length slips or more daring in an emerald green sequined blazer with fringed details. Acid green also made an appearance in scuba-like materials, like a bustier minidress, mixing the surfer, beachy vibes and jungle landscapes of Ubud and Uluwatu.
“We’re always trying to make eveningwear — glamorous, yes — but with a dash of fun and youth…and a cool factor that’s often missing,” Holmgren described. The brand continues to do so — fall meant updated sequined — as well as velvet devore-offerings (in a great leafy print). A special edition hand-placed tiger printed velvet devoré shirtdress and slinky “Bali” scarf printed — found during Harrison’s travels — gowns made for great additions to round out the collection of multiple-climate appropriate attire.

Polartec: A Textile Success Story That Sets Company Up for a Sale

Retirement didn’t really agree with Gary Smith — and that’s been the major game-changer for Polartec.
Under the direction of Smith, chief executive officer of the Andover, Mass.-based fabric producer, Polartec went from the verge of liquidation to a profitable business that provides active and outdoor brands — and now luxury fashion labels — with a variety of performance fabrics. Its most recent innovation is Power Air, a fabric that cuts down on shedding in synthetic fleece that hit the market this winter exclusively in Adidas products and has started rolling out to other brands.
As a result of the turnaround, Polartec’s private equity owners have “begun an active process to sell the company,” Smith said. While nothing is imminent, having private equity investors makes it inevitable a sale will happen. “It took a long time to turn this thing around,” the ceo admitted.
But Polartec’s about-face almost didn’t happen.
Smith was the president of Timberland’s Outdoor Group and senior vice president of its supply chain. He exited Timberland shortly before it was sold to VF Corp. After a career that included being a partner in McKinsey & Co., he thought it would be an ideal time to ditch the corporate world and engage

DWTS’ John Schneider Gets Emotional Over His Strained Relationship with His Children

John Schneider is hoping he can mend his strained relationship with his three children.

In an exclusive clip of Monday’s Dancing with the Stars, the Dukes of Hazzard alum, who played Bo Duke on the comedy series from 1979-85, gets emotional while explaining how country music and DWTS has affected his life.

“What country music means to me is it’s three chords and the truth and it shines a light on things that happen in everyday life that are wonderful, not so wonderful, and that are heart-wrenching,” Schneider, 58, says.

“I’ve been going through a divorce now for four years and it’s awful. The worst part about it is that it’s wedged itself in between my three adult children and myself. Nothing I can do except hope one day one of my kids will call me up or show up. I look in the crowd every Monday thinking maybe tonight, maybe tonight.”

“If it weren’t for this music and now Dancing with the Stars, I don’t think I can survive it,” he admits. “It gives me great joy at a time where I desperately needed it.”

Earlier on in the season, Schneider briefly spoke towards his relationship with his children. whom he is not on speaking terms with.

“I’m hoping that I will do my family proud, I’ll do my love over there proud,” said Schneider told host Erin Andrews, referencing his girlfriend, Alicia, and added, “and maybe my children will speak to me again.”

After 21 years of marriage, Schneider’s estranged wife Elvira “Elly” Schneider filed for divorce in Los Angeles County on Nov. 14, 2014. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split, according to court documents.

In September 2016, Schneider — he shares adult children Leah, Chasen, and Karis with Elvira — was ordered to pay his ex $ 18,911 every month, TMZ reported.

But in June, Schneider was sentenced to three days behind bars in the Los Angeles County Jail in June for failure to pay more than $ 150,000 in owed alimony payments to Elvira. The actor was released on the same day as his initial booking because of California’s overcrowded prison system, but his legal woes were not done with that.

Schneider was also ordered to serve an additional 120 hours behind bars for contempt, but that sentence was suspended by the court on the condition that he fulfills a four-part list of conditions, including filing back taxes to help clear title to their property in Apple Valley so that it could be transferred to her, paying his ex half of his owed earnings from Maven Entertainment, and offering certain financial disclosures before the end of the year.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.

Eidos Names Handis Creative Director

Simon Spurr may have moved on as the designer of Eidos, but one of his colleagues is stepping into the role.
Michael Handis has been named creative director of the brand, the younger-skewed collection from Isaia. He succeeds Spurr who left to join Seven For All Mankind as global creative director in January. 
Handis, a designer, stylist and archivist, will oversee the collection and its image.
Handis worked alongside Spurr at Kent & Curwen, Tommy Hilfiger, and Simon Spurr Collections. He has also worked with David Lipman, Karl Templer, and Peter Lindbergh. 
Gianluca Isaia, chief executive officer of Isaia and Eidos, said, “We are confident that the brand’s path and momentum will continue to build based upon the success that we have seen over the past year. Eidos offers an easibility and modern perspective that is on the pulse of how men are wearing tailored clothing at the moment — mixing an element of streetwear casual with tailoring.”

JW Anderson Taps Julie Greve to Shoot Spring Campaign

A FRESH FACE: Jonathan Anderson has always seen his role both at JW Anderson and Loewe as a “cultural agitator” as much as designer.
A longtime champion of photography and pushing the boundaries of image-making, he launched the “Your Picture/Our Future” project last year, in a bid to shine the spotlight on the new generation of photographers.
Now he has tapped Julie Greve, one of the winners of the competition, for his latest spring 2019 campaign, which will be released this week.
The campaign, dubbed “Jagged Whispers Ashore” includes a series of black-and-white images that have a nostalgic, raw feel to them, as well as a film shot by Greve. She worked alongside Anderson, stylist Benjamin Bruno and the creative agency M/M Paris to conceptualize the images and film.
Greve, who is U.K.-based, was one of three winners of Anderson’s “Your Picture/Our Future” photography competition. She also worked on the brand’s fall 2018 campaign alongside the other two winners.
As part of the initiative, which is supported by Prince Charles’ charity The Princes Trust, Anderson was flooded with more than 1,800 submissions from young, 18- to 30-year-old imagemakers. He selected three winners and curated an exhibition in Covent Garden last May, to showcase some of

Ulla Johnson RTW Fall 2019

Ulla Johnson’s fall collection combined bold patterns, rich textures and flattering silhouettes in a lineup that exuded a romantic, adventurous and poetic sensibility. But its many diverse ideas were unified by an elegant, sophisticated attitude.
Nomadic and subtly bohemian references injected a charming feel into the clothes, which seemed designed for a chic globetrotter exploring the world with style. 
Shearling coats with tick stitching that created check patterns, as well as striped vests and overcoats with a rustic feel were matched with safari-like separates in graphic motifs, maxi leather skirts embellished with macramé inserts, as well as corduroy separates with tops that had draped, maxi shoulders. Flowers blossomed on both a sumptuous, maxi ruffled dress worked in a shining devore velvet and on jacquard frocks and separates lightened up by shimmering metallic threads.
The collection’s overall hyper-feminine allure was savvily tempered with more urban and minimal styles, including a workwear-inspired jumpsuit crafted from cream white denim, which was also used for a pair of carrot pants matched with a beautiful Peruvian baby alpaca handmade crochet sweater exuding exquisite sartorial quality.
Armed with impeccable taste and a very distinctive tone, Johnson delivered another solid collection that brought an intriguing multicultural, romantic vibe to

BRIDGET FOLEY’S DIARY: To Paris We Must Go

Taking to the runway for fall isn’t necessary. Taking the collection to Paris to sell absolutely is.
That’s the current mind-set at Monse, as for the second consecutive fall season the brand will forego a formal show. Instead, designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia have enlisted Kristian Schuller to shoot their look book, which will feature Amanda Murphy, and the brand will hold showroom appointments in New York and Paris.
While the designers remain undecided about whether to opt off the runway for spring as well, in something of a paradigm shift they will definitely stage a formal show for resort 2020.
At a time when brands increasingly opt to go their own way when it comes to presenting their collections, the Monse designers and chief executive officer Renee Prince Fillip thought long and hard about the traditional schedule vis-à-vis the realities of their business. Their no-show decision for fall took into consideration the complications of staging two shows in a single season, as Kim and Garcia have done most seasons since taking over the creative helm at Oscar de la Renta. An even bigger consideration: the frustrating reality of fall markdowns. They determined that the scale of the fall business doesn’t justify the

Family of Baby Girl, Who Was Stabbed and Put in Heated Oven, Hold Funeral for the 20-Month-Old

Royalty Floyd, the 20-month-old Mississippi toddler who was allegedly stabbed and then placed in a heated oven by her own grandmother, was laid to rest on Saturday in Clarksdale.

The family of the slain baby girl came together to say their final goodbyes dressed in pink, per request of Royalty’s mother Veronica Jones, who said it was her daughter’s “favorite color” on Facebook.

“You are gone from this earth but you will forever be here in my heart. You were really truly one of the most beautiful creations that God had ever made and I would like to thank God for bringing you into my life,” Veronica wrote ahead of Royalty’s service.

At the funeral, Royalty’s grandfather delivered a tearful eulogy about his late granddaughter.

“She was ‘Big Girl.’ But from the day she was born, she was granddaddy’s baby girl. And she knew it,” Royalty’s grandfather James Harris said, WREG-TV reported.

“I miss her,” Harris continued. “But she’ll always be with me. Always.”

Royalty’s father John Floyd, who is still in shock over his daughter’s gruesome death, also managed to say a few words at the funeral.

“I still find it unbelievable to tell you the truth,” John said, WREG-TV reported.

“And to try and make heads or tails of what happened, it’s still something I can’t comprehend right now. It ain’t soaking in for some reason. I’m thinking one day this is all something that isn’t real,” John added.

On Oct. 15, authorities were called to a residence in the small city of Shaw after a family member discovered Royalty’s lifeless body burnt and stabbed inside a heated oven.

Royalty was alive when her grandmother, 48-year-old Carolyn Jones allegedly placed her inside the oven.

A deputy coroner at the Bolivar County Coroner’s office in Mississippi told The Bolivar Commercial that the young child died “from sharp stab wounds and inhaling the heated air in the oven.”

On the night of the little girl’s death, Carolyn was immediately taken into custody and has been charged with first-degree murder, the Bolivar County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to PEOPLE.

Carolyn is currently being represented by a public defender.  PEOPLE could not immediately reach the public defender.

When contacted by the Associated Press, a public defender declined to comment, saying he’s still learning about the case.

The Bolivar County Sheriff’s Department also told PEOPLE, the child “was living at the residence with Jones at the time of the murder.”

“I’ve been in law enforcement a long time, 26 years almost. Some of the most horrific scenes I’ve seen in law enforcement involve children. Those are some of the— they have an effect on us. We don’t want it to happen, but unfortunately, things like this happen,” Bolivar County Sheriff Kevin Williams said in a press conference on Oct. 16, WREG reported.

When asked for a motive, Williams said, “We are trying to figure that out ourselves. We have no idea at this point.”

Royalty’s mother also created a GoFundMe and raised over $ 6,000 to cover Royalty’s funeral costs.

British photographer David Sims portrayed Leon in the backseat of a car against a blurred cityscape. Other images feature actresses Juliette Lewis, Maya Hawke, Zazie Beetz, and Chinese model Du Juan aboard coaches and buses.

Victoria Beckham Pre-Fall 2019

Victoria Beckham has an acute knowledge of what she and, in turn, her customers want to wear.
She has developed a power-dressing formula of her own that revolves around elegant tailoring, cozy knits and feminine yet easy-to-throw-on midi dresses — and she keeps returning to it, as it clearly seems to appeal to her growing customer base of women who subscribe to her brand of modern femininity and are on the lookout for glamorous yet no-fuss clothing.
For pre-fall, she kept her focus sharp and stayed true to brand signatures from elegant skinny trousers, to asymmetric knit dresses and flowing midi’s.
Some highlights included a pair of khaki slim trousers with the brand’s signature slits placed on the sides; a tweed suit that is already on high demand after Beckham wore it to attend her husband’s Kent & Curwen presentation during the London men’s shows; tailored corduroy trousers and colorblock tops. There were also dainty slip tops or camisole dresses galore — Beckham said customers loved the lingerie inspiration the brand debuted on the runway last season, so she listened and is giving them more.

EXCLUSIVE: Kris Van Assche Rebuilding Berluti From the Shoes Up

PARIS — “I’m happy to finally give birth — I feel like it’s been 10 months instead of nine, so I’m way overdue,” said Kris Van Assche, greeting a visitor at the Berluti showroom just days before his debut runway show for a luxury label that is rooted in footwear.
Indeed, it’s been an unusually long gestation period for the former Dior Homme designer, whose arrival at Berluti was confirmed in April 2018. Not that he’s been idle: Van Assche presented his capsule spring collection in October, and has also shown a pre-fall collection in-house.
But having watched Kim Jones at Dior and Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton, his fellow designers within the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton empire, make splashy debuts during Paris Fashion Week: Men’s in June, followed by Hedi Slimane’s coed show for Celine in September, the 42-year-old is understandably eager to finally lay out his vision for the new-look Berluti.
That vision starts, unsurprisingly, with the footwear. Known for his mix of sharp tailoring and sophisticated sportswear, the Belgian designer has revamped Berluti’s classic Alessandro oxford shoe, made from a single piece of patinated Venezia leather, with the addition of sharp angles and gleaming silver hardware.

Selfridges Notches More Than 4 Million Pounds in Early Hours of Boxing Day Sale

LONDON — Footfall may have been down on Boxing Day, which marks the start of the winter sales in Britain, but for Selfridges, the pickings were rich.
The store, known for its bright yellow branding, said following a strong pre-Christmas trading period, it took in more than 4 million pounds in the first hours of the Boxing Day sale, which began Tuesday night online and Wednesday morning in-store.
Selfridges said it has already seen a 6 percent uplift on last year, and added that Boxing Day 2018 is on track to remain the retailer’s biggest trading day of the year. Selfridges doesn’t close until 9 p.m. local time, so final numbers are still unavailable.
The company said shoppers began arriving outside the Oxford Street store at 2:30 a.m. on Boxing Day, the day after Christmas, when estate owners and employers in Britain traditionally gave gifts to their employees. The store said it expected to see around 120,000 customers between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesday.
Selfridges.com has seen the highest number of site visits to date, with 1.5 million customers visiting the site since Tuesday night, with “high double-digit growth” online compared with last year, it said.
So far the highest-performing departments have been women’s

Warm RTW Pre-Fall 2019

“In summer, everyone’s tan. Everyone feels thinner even if they’re not…maybe it’s just the tan…but for me, I make happy clothes and clothes that try to make you feel happy and like you’re on vacation while grinding it out in the city,” Warm designer Winnie Beattie mused. The designer used knowledge from her own store, customer requests of buy-now warm-weather pieces, combined with requests from her buyers for transitional pieces that can still sit on the floor come early fall, as well. Envisioning those warm summer nights, Beattie designed a lovely collection to appease both.
There were easy printed voile dresses — floral mumus, geode minis — or washed silk jumpsuits with pussy bows and rompers fit for Beattie’s clambake nights in Amagansett, N.Y., that also stayed true to her unwavering versatility. Throw on one of her washed macro-floral printed silk or striped cotton dresses with a pair of Manolos for a summer wedding or dirty Chucks for running around, either worked wonderfully. Plaid “rainbow” cover-ups — a matching surf poncho and trouser — took the place of summer sweaters (because sweaters in the summer is “like admitting it’s cold, which is a horrible, sad thing,” Beattie quipped) made a stellar addition to the

How the Internet Sparked Copenhagen’s Rise

COPENHAGEN — Inside the centuries-old Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, doyennes of Copenhagen’s fashion scene gathered. Apollo Bar, a trendy restaurant housed within the school, was that evening’s location for a party hosted by Ganni, a homegrown megabrand celebrating its new art film series directed by the Danish “It” girl Emma Leth. Clutching whimsical striped boxes of popcorn, women from various creative fields — dressed in pastel track suits, tinsel sweaters and running sneakers — sauntered through the historic, wood-paneled rooms.
Such is a typical magpie Thursday night here, where a close-knit community of fashion designers, artists, restaurateurs, interior designers and creative types have collectively drawn significant attention on the Internet for their “Scandi 2.0” style: colorful, mismatched fashion, expressive interior design and experimental cuisine that is a far cry from Scandinavia’s reputation for austere, minimalist style.
Copenhagen — along with Seoul and Mexico City — has become the latest creative hub to grow repute on Instagram. These cities’ unique aesthetic sense, cultural pride and innovative panache are attracting hip-seeking visitors — joining the list of chic destinations for Millennials in a world that is increasingly interconnected.

“Just had some pizza ❤🌱(6 months),” Weixler captioned an Instagram post, joking that her baby bump is really just a food baby.

In the shot, The Good Wife star, dressed in all black, can be seen cradling her pregnant belly in a field full of apple trees.

A rep for Weixler did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Weixler and Brocklebank, a British businessman, got married in 2015 during a stunning ceremony on the beach.

Rather than going the traditional route, Brocklebank wore a coral colored suit with a white shirt and a black tie.

Both opted to go barefoot for the sandy festivities.

“A lot of love on that beach,” Weixler captioned a photo from their wedding day.

Michael Andrews Bespoke Acquires Kozinn+Sons Merchant Tailors

Michael Andrews Bespoke has acquired Kozinn+Sons Merchant Tailors.
The New York-based custom tailor will re-brand Kozinn+Sons, which has been around for over a century, and operate it under the Michael Andrews Bespoke label that was founded a decade ago.
This is MAB’s first acquisition in the U.S. and largest to date. The company has tried to expand into custom women’s clothing and men’s made-to-measure.
“Kozinn+Sons is a New York institution,” said Michael Andrews, founder and chief executive officer of Michael Andrews Bespoke. “In addition to the family’s multigenerational experience and century-old pattern archives, we’re particularly looking forward to delving further into the theatrical component of their business for which they have become so well known.”
Kozinn+Sons was previously named Saint Laurie but changed its name in 2017 after years of litigation with Yves Saint Laurent.
“Our heritage dovetails perfectly with Michael Andrews’ innovative approach and reinforces our role as ‘keepers of the flame’ for handmade custom clothing,” said Andy Kozinn, Kozinn+Sons’ third-generation ceo. “My family’s legacy lives on through our shared commitment to quality, craftsmanship and service. I am looking forward to welcoming Kozinn clients to MAB’s world-class operation.”

Alexa Chung Brings Thanksgiving to London

THE BRIT TAKE: Alexa Chung brought a taste of New York to London with a Thanksgiving celebration to kick off the holiday season. “I’m calling it Chungsgiving — I’ve taken Thanksgiving, as if the British haven’t done enough to plunder,” Chung said, while getting ready at the penthouse of the London Edition Hotel, where she hosted the dinner.
“I’ve lived in New York and experienced quite a few Thanksgivings over there. I never had any family living with me, so what the holiday meant to me was bringing your friends together and making a makeshift family of all the expats floating around.” Thursday evening’s makeshift family included Serafina Sama of Isa Arfen, Suki Waterhouse and Poppy Jamie of Pop & Suki, Jack Guinness, Jeanne Damas, Pixie Geldof and Camille Charriere.
“I’ve missed how Thanksgiving in New York used to feel. It’s the one time of the year when it’s not a religious holiday, it’s just the beginning of the holiday season, where you can celebrate it with your mates, get drunk, feel cozy,” added Chung.
Everyone certainly got cozy. The evening kicked off with rounds of American whiskey punch, followed by a turkey dinner and pumpkin pie for dessert. To top it off,

Etro Pre-Fall 2019

“Artsy Craftsy” was the name of Etro’s pre-fall collection. “The collection is inspired by strong women such as art collectors who like to travel and love bold colors, patterns and unique techniques,” said the brand’s women’s wear creative director Veronica Etro, highlighting the artistic spirit she infused into her lineup. This visually impactful flair, conveyed with a flamboyant métissage of paisley motifs, floral graphics, jacquard drawings and bold colorblocking, refreshed the nomadic attitude traditionally associated with the Milanese brand.
While playing with rich fabrics, prints and textures, Etro kept the silhouettes clean and linear. Eye-catching patchwork coats and jackets, including a blazer crafted from a tactile, 3-D material and trimmed with contrasting piping, were matched with cropped, slightly flared denim pants or fluid, silk trousers showing asymmetric prints running down the legs.
The breezy dresses had a vibrant feel, evoking Latin American rhythms, while elegant styles in solid black, including a chic belted evening jacket cut from a technical fabric and a cashmere coat, revealed subtle tone-on-tone decorations for a more discreet take on Etro’s signature maximalist style.

Galeries Lafayette and Ester Manas to Offer One-Size-Fits-All Fashion

A NEW SIZE: Redefining the age-old “one size fits all” notion, a collection of adjustable dresses, tops and trench coats designed by Ester Manas will be sold at Galeries Lafayette this spring.
“It’s a collection that draws on the idea that all women must be dressed,” explained Manas, winner of the department store’s prize at the International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyères, France, this year. Pointing to a sweatshirt with a bright red elastic belt, the designer explained that the collection, called “Fashion for All,” is meant to span a range from European size 34 to size 50, thanks to the help of belts, straps and snaps.

Boxing Champion Victor Ortiz Arrested for Rape and Charged with 3 Felonies

Professional boxer Victor Ortiz, who appeared on Dancing with the Stars as well as films The Expendables 3 and Southpaw, has turned himself in to authorities for allegedly raping a woman in March, the Oxnard Police Department confirmed in a news release.

The 31-year-old athlete surrendered himself at the Ventura County Sheriff Department’s East Valley Station on Tuesday after being charged with three counts of felony sexual assault, including rape.

Officials first began investigating Ortiz after his alleged victim contacted authorities on Match 19 claiming she was sexually assaulted “inside a residence in the city of Oxnard,” by the boxer, the Oxnard Police Department said.

The investigation has been ongoing for the last several months before authorities issued an arrest warrant for Ortiz.

The boxer’s bail has been set to $ 100,000 and he is being held on suspicion of forcible rape as well as forcible oral copulation and forcible digital penetration.

Ortiz’s previously had a run in with the law in 2015 when he was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, namely his foot.

Lieutenant Jason Clawson of the Pasadena Police Department previously told PEOPLE that the boxer was arrested at a Kenny Chesney concert at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

The boxer later pled guilty to battery charge as part of a plea deal. He was put on probation.

Ortiz was also arrested in 2016 for a DUI, according to TMZ. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI and was sentenced to 3 years probation and 8 days in county jail.

Ortiz’s latest arrest comes just five days before the boxer is expected to fight in a nationally-televised special against former world title challenger, John Molina Jr.

The fight, which is planned to occur at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California. Ortiz is currently out on bail so it is not clear of the fight will go ahead.

A representative for Ortiz did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Ortiz’s previous titles include the WBC welterweight in 2011 and the ESPN Prospect of the Year in 2008. He was formerly rated as one of the top three welterweights in the world by ESPN, along with several other sporting and boxing websites.

In his tenure — which includes an overall record of 32-6-3 with 25 knockouts — Ortiz has fought against an impressive list of boxers including Floyd Mayweather, Andre Berto, Lamont Peterson, Luis Collazo, and Marcos Maidana.

Will a Larger Adidas Yeezy Boost Release Hurt the Brand?

Kanye West always wanted this.
Not having royalties and not being able to produce more sneakers were the main reasons he left Nike. And upon signing his deal with Adidas, which started in 2013, he made it clear that he wanted more people to have access to his sneakers. Today he’s making good on that promise with the release of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 in an all-white colorway that retails for $ 220. Customers will only be able to purchase the sneakers directly through adidas.com and the Yeezy Supply web site. They are reportedly releasing 1 million pairs of shoes.
West’s influence, along with scarcity, is what has bolstered the Yeezy footwear line. But what happens when a Yeezy Boost style becomes even more ubiquitous? Will it have the same trajectory as the Jordan brand, which lost market share and cache due to overproduction.

Something Navy Crashes Site, Beats Expectations at Nordstrom

Arielle Charnas, the influencer behind the popular fashion blog and social channels Something Navy, had a “wildly successful” launch of her collection exclusively at Nordstrom on Monday, according to a Nordstrom spokeswoman.  The brand was so popular it crashed the site in the first hour, which was quickly remedied.
Many customers complained online that they weren’t able to buy what they put in their shopping bag since the site crashed, and once it was back online Nordstrom had sold out of the items.
The introduction followed the successful launch of the Treasure & Bond x Something Navy capsule collection last fall. That capsule was estimated to have racked up sales of about $ 1 million in less than 24 hours, as reported.
On Monday, Something Navy sales beat expectations, according to the spokeswoman. Among the best sellers were a v-neck slouchy pullover, which was available in five colors for $ 79; the double-breasted topper coat in check pattern for $ 139, and the teddy coat, available in two colors, blue and tan, for $ 149. The tan sold out Monday and the blue is still available in large and XXL.

The blue teddy coat is still available in a few sizes.

Koché RTW Spring 2019

At a time when the United Nations is meeting in New York, discord between nations has rarely appeared so high. Christelle Kocher has other ideas.
Her spring collection was an ode to unity, under the guise of a celebration of women worldwide. That could be a soignée Parisienne, strutting down Avenue Montaigne in a fuchsia blazer, or a young girl in Indonesia going out with friends in a sequined top and matching headscarf, paired with pleated track pants.
“It’s an homage to diversity, a rallying call in which fashion can be a good vector of unification,” Kocher said backstage after the show, held at the French Communist Party headquarters in Paris, a saucer-shaped building designed by Oscar Niemeyer in the Sixties.
Kocher has always connected with a more nuanced vision of Paris than most people who live here experience — the result of shuttling between her job as artistic director of Maison Lemarié, part of Chanel’s stable of specialty ateliers, and her own studio in the multiethnic neighborhood of Belleville in the northeast of Paris.
This season, she broadened that vision to places she has visited, and those she dreams of discovering. A black bodysuit was embroidered with silver sequins in geometric motifs inspired

This felt like the underlying message relayed by Fast Retailing Co. Ltd. executives speaking before a crowded room of journalists gathered for a Uniqlo exhibit about knitwear in Paris. People squeezed into the entrance of the show, a wide room covered with dangling wheels of colored wool, the hues arranged like a giant, three-dimensional rainbow.
Held at the Jeu de Paume museum in Paris, the show runs from Wednesday through Saturday. It’s a sort of ephemeral pop-up experience from the Japanese label, which touts the exhibit as its first, as it joins the growing ranks of brands aiming to pull in new consumers by telling people how their stuff is made.
“The Art and Science of LifeWear” features a knitting machine in action, building a sweater dress before the public. It then takes visitors through a life of a sweater through photos, showing inspection stages and the factory hanger system, finishing with the final residue removal, done by hand. Another room is covered with rows of outfits, some outfitted with knit hats, scarves and gloves.
Closing the exhibit is a pop-up shop, complete with a cash register, featuring collaborations with Andrea Crews—airport themed, with sweaters stamped “Paris”

Lisa Rinna Changes Her Hairdo for the First Time in 20 Years Using Drugstore Dye

As Brandi Glanville once told Lisa Rinna in season 5 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: ‘You’ve had the same hairdo for 20 years!” Well, not anymore.

The Melrose Place alum debuted her new darker hairstyle on Watch What Happens Live! on Tuesday, after the third and final part of the RHOBH reunion special aired on Bravo.

“I mean, I wanted to try something new, and you know, I’ve had the same hairdo,” Rinna, 52, explained to host Andy Cohen about her coiffed strands. “For 20 years I’ve had the same hairdo and I thought, ‘Why not?’ You know?”

The mother of two also added that the hair transformation was a bit of a spontaneous decision that was influenced by the recent Met Gala.

“I darkened it a little bit. I went to the drugstore last night, and I got this fanciful – I don’t know what it is. It’ll wash out,” she said. “Because my highlights were all crazy all over the place and I thought, ‘I’ll just darken it a little bit.’ I had a vision. It was sort of, like, for the Met Ball, the ‘Manus Machina’ look for the Met Ball.”

So will this darker color be permanent change? “I like my hairdo though,” she clarified. “I really do.”

Rinna’s signature, short hairstyle previously featured streaks of honey blonde highlights. She most memorably sported brunette locks in April 2015 when she ditched her shaggy pixie cut for dark Kardashian-esque extensions in response to Glanville’s insults about her hair.

One of the reasons Rinna likes to rock a bob is because husband of close to 20 years Harry Hamlin prefers a shorter ‘do.

“Harry likes it. He always says, ‘Keep it short.’ So I like to keep my husband happy; that is not news,” she said during a Access Hollywood co-hosting gig in April 2015.

Nautica to Open Full-Price Store in SoHo

NEW YORK — Nautica is getting back into the full-price retail business in the U.S.
The nautical-skewed brand will open a flagship at 101 Prince Street in SoHo later this week. The 2,000-square-foot store, which is located between the Apple Store and J. Crew, marks the first Nautica store to open in Manhattan in over a decade. The company operates over 200 stores internationally, but only outlet stores in America.
The new store is part of the company’s repositioning strategy that was revealed in February. The plan revolves around the theme of “Reimagine Nautica — Inspired by the Sea, Designed in the City,” and includes a good, better, best pricing approach. The SoHo store will carry the higher-priced, more aspirational product and will include women’s wear as well.
Karen Murray, president of Nautica, said, “It is exciting for our brand and consumers to have a retail location in the city that we have called home for over 30 years.”
The SoHo store will offer a “reimagined nautical environment with references to a modern cityscape,” the company said. This will translate into a sophisticated, boutique-style store with nautical references including natural oak beams intended to be reminiscent of a boat.
The store will also include a “style bar,” which will feature an assortment

Duchess of Cambridge Opens Magic Garden at Hampton Court

DUCHESS ON DUTY: Following a tour of India and Bhutan, Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday festivities and a visit from President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, the Duchess of Cambridge is carrying on with a series of royal engagements. She headed to Hampton Court to open Magic Garden, a new children’s play area, on Wednesday.
Designed by Robert Meyers with a moat and shrub maze, the garden is located in King Henry VIII’s former courtyard where, historically, jousting and tournaments took place. The duchess met with the teams involved in the design and construction, as well as children and families in the community. She attended a reception and unveiled a plaque to mark the opening. No stranger to recycling her wardrobe, she donned a blue-gray Michael Kors coat first seen during her royal tour to Australia in 2014 with LK Bennett heels.
As a patron of the Anna Freud Centre, she attended a lunch in a Roksanda Illincic dress and met with families from the center and supporters of the institution that increases awareness of children’s mental health issues. She headed to the National Portrait Gallery wearing a pink peplum Alexander McQueen dress to view two portraits of her by photographer Josh Olins that are on display as a

Christian Siriano Bridal Spring 2017

For his first full-fledged bridal collection, retailing exclusively at Kleinfeld, Christian Siriano looked to France, drawing inspiration from its vintage interiors, Art Nouveau tapestries and the work of Impressionist painters Claude Monet and Edgar Degas. He parlayed his references into a romantic lineup full of classic princess gowns and other, more playful silhouettes — the latter including a cropped-top and skirt set; a sexy, sequined jumpsuit; a ruffled tuxedo and a flirty, feathered minidress. Siriano’s strapless sweetheart gown with a tiered, pleated silk chiffon skirt felt effortlessly feminine, and his pink ombre ballgown — the collection’s showstopping finale look — was bound to fulfill some future bride’s ultimate wedding fantasy.

This Is The Actual Inspiration Behind Those Crazy Outfits At The Met Gala

Monday night’s Met Gala left onlookers speechless with the elaborate gowns and overall commitment to the theme, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.”

This year the annual exhibit, which opens up to the public at the Metropolitan Museum of Art shortly after the eve of the gala, examines the relationship between hand-made and machine made garments over time. The result? An even bigger display of mind-blowing gowns than those usually seen on the red carpet. 

The museum’s website explains that the exhibit, which features over 150 ensembles, will “address the founding of the haute couture in the 19th century, when the sewing machine was invented, and the emergence of a distinction between the hand (manus) and the machine (machina) at the onset of mass production.”

There are feathers! There is intricate design! And if you thought the train on Zoe Saldana’s dress was long, well:

 

Enough said.  

Feast your eyes on the gorgeous gowns below, and if you’re in New York, be sure to visit the exhibit, which runs May 5 to August 14.

This Kendall Jenner Vs. Britney Spears Fashion Faceoff Was 14 Years in the Making

We’ve already caught Kendall Jenner channeling Britney Spears in the past, and now the supermodel just took her appreciation for all things ’90s style to the next level by wearing almost the same exact diamond choker as Brit, 14 years after the pop princess first rocked it.

Pintrill Opens Brooklyn Store

Jordan Roschwalb’s enthusiasm for pins is infectious.
“I wanted to be able to give pin collectors a space to congregate just like sneaker collectors go to Stadium Goods,” said Roschwalb when asked about Pintrill’s first brick-and-mortar store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. “This will be a flagship where people from all over can come and experience this.”
Roschwalb cofounded Pintrill in 2014 along with Doni Gitlin and Andrew Yung. Over the past two years the brand has grown rapidly with its clever, of-the-moment pins, which retail from $ 12 to $ 20 and are released on a weekly basis.
The Pintrill flagship, which opens this Saturday at 231 Grand Street, sells Pintrill’s vast collection of pins. They are displayed on clear pegs to give the appearance that they are floating. The 625-square-foot space, which will also serve as Pintrill’s headquarters, is stocked with vintage pins Roschwalb sources from all over the word — they are featured on rotating trays in a glass box — and supplementary items to display pins such as vintage corkboards, trays and Pintrill’s line of hats.
Different displays in the shop, which is sprinkled with vintage toy viewfinders, will be dedicated to new weekly releases, in-store exclusives and a board behind the cash register

Working with only the most exquisite fabrics, such as French lace and Italian duchess satin, taffeta and jacquard, the designer created a variety of gowns to complement many different types of women, but each dress was consistent with the elegance and sophistication that’s built into the brand’s DNA. Looks ranged from an architectural seamed and draped fluted gown — the last word in minimalistic chic — to a glamorous fitted gown of Chantilly French lace over tulle and crystal paillettes.

Calvin Klein Cancels Annual Bash at Cannes Film Festival

CALVIN SKIPS CANNES: Calvin Klein, which has thrown some of the splashiest events at the Cannes Film Festival in collaboration with the Independent Filmmaker Project for the past five years, is taking a pass this year. The company has decided to cancel its annual party, which over the years has honored such stars as Lupita Nyong’o, Naomi Watts, Julianne Moore, Rooney Mara, Emily Blunt, Isabelle Huppert, Mélanie Laurent, Sienna Miller and Rachel Weisz. The parties have taken place at a private villa on the French Riviera.
Last year’s event attracted such celebrities as Jake Gyllenhaal, Harvey Weinstein, Rossy de Palma, Joan Smalls and Doutzen Kroes. The party included a huge seafood buffet, a DJ set by Harley Viera-Newton and a live performance by California band Haim.
With the changing of the guard of the design team at Calvin Klein — Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli are both exiting as creative directors of women’s and men’s Collection — sources said the company decided to skip the celebration this year.

Bella Hadid, Kendall and Kylie Jenner and More Stars Prove That Stray Hairs Are a Thing Now

Remember the 90’s tendril trend? You know the one: A stray strand of hair cascading dramatically out of a ponytail, perfectly waved in front of your face? Well according to Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, and Kylie Jenner, it’s back — and so is its tiny little sister, the baby hair.

tendrilsRaymond Hall/GC; Paul Morigi/WireImage(2)



Kendall, Bella and Gabrielle Union all stepped out with 10% of their ponytails flying freely in front of their faces this week. Jenner and Union are so serious about the trend that they both wore it proudly in front of the President to the White House Correspondant’s Dinner, while Bella paired it with a Kim K-esque latex dress following the Met Gala. (Her look is courtesy KarJenner mane master, Jen Atkin.)

But the tendril doesn’t get to have it’s own time in the spotlight. Stars are also embracing their baby hairs. We know, finding a rogue hair on the hairline of Kim Kardashian is impossible, but Kylie is proudly flaunting her tiny strands in the most major way — on the cover of a magazine.

Jenner covered Glamour UK’s June issue looking fresh-faced and pouty — but it’s not her plumped lips, yellow eyeshadow, or bold blue coat that immediately caught our eyes. It was the unlikely sighting of all of her baby hairs, combed down onto her forehead. And she’s not the only one.

Minka Kelly, Vanessa Hudgens and Nicole Richie are all feeling the look as well. In fact, Richie named her baby hairs “J Lo’s” in an Instagram post, writing, “Brushed my teeth, washed my face, & brushed down my JLOs. Night night bbs.” And Hudgens also credited the singer as her inspiration, writing “These baby hairs are giving me major J-Lo vibes.”

Damir Doma to Show Men’s and Women’s Together in June

Just as a number of brands ranging from Ermenegildo Zegna, Bottega Veneta and Calvin Klein Collection to Costume National, Corneliani and No. 21 will, for different reasons, forgo the catwalk during Milan Fashion Week in June, Damir Doma has decided to show both his men’s and women’s collections on the runway.
“It took almost a year to make this decision but we think this will enable us to improve our deliveries and performances,” said Doma, who unified his women’s pre-fall and main collections into a single lineup in June. The Croatian designer said he will show the same number of men’s and women’s outfits. “The sales campaign will close in July and we will have the right amount of time to produce the collections and have them delivered in stores earlier than in the past.”
Doma also said that by showing together the two collections buyers might make more coherent purchases. “Men’s buyers used to focus on sportswear, while women’s buyers tend to look for special pieces,” he explained. “The image of the brand was not cohesive in the stores and it also turned out that women’s wear had a higher retail price point. I hope that, from now on, things will be more balanced.”

Pat McGrath’s Party at Sephora for Skin Fetish 003

There was no shortage of spectacle at Pat McGrath’s public appearance Tuesday night at the Sephora in Union Square in New York.
First there was the line of eager McGrath fans wrapped around 18th Street from Park Avenue in the pouring rain, queued up to take a selfie with McGrath, get a touch-up by a makeup artist in her crew or to purchase her Skin Fetish 003 kit, which will officially launch May 10 in seven Sephora stores and on sephora.com. The set, which includes a highlighting stick duo, iridescent powder and brush, launched and immediately sold out on McGrath’s Web site last week. At Sephora, Skin Fetish 003 is housed in a special gold fixture reminiscent of a carnival game.
Though some of McGrath’s fashionably famous pals — including Grace Coddington, hairstylist Guido Palau and Anne V — trickled in throughout the night, the real sight to be seen was the coterie of about 20 performers decked out in fantastical stage make and bejeweled, bedazzled costumes — some in drag — that would not have been entirely out of place at Monday night’s Met Gala. Among them were Duo Raw, a pair of Swedish drag queens, and Muffinhead, a New York-based performance artist.

VFiles Hosts Justin Bieber ‘Purpose Tour’ Pop-up

BIEBER BOUTIQUE: VFiles has cleared its SoHo store in Manhattan to make way for Justin Bieber’s “Purpose World Tour” merchandise.
The Millennial-minded social media platform and retailer is hosting a two-day pop-up that opens today and is dedicated to Bieber’s concert merchandise, which includes a denim jacket, T-shirts, hoodies, hats and sweatpants that retail from $ 30 to $ 360. The pop-up will also include two limited-edition hoodies that are exclusive to VFiles and a T-shirt designed specifically for his Brooklyn concert, which will be held tonight and tomorrow night at the Barclays Center. Customers, who were let in 20 at a time, are only allowed to buy one of each item.
The line for the pop-up, which snaked down Mercer Street, was filled with mostly young people wearing other merchandise from their favorite pop stars — Beyoncé’s Ivy Park logo and Kanye West’s “The Life of Pablo” graphics were scattered through the crowd.
Shoppers in line were either Beliebers or they worshiped at the altar of Jerry Lorenzo, the Fear of God designer who helped with the merchandise and designed custom pieces for the tour. Lorenzo was set to make an appearance at the pop-up, but in a very Bieber-like move, he refused press

21 Off-the-Shoulder Pieces That Are Perfect for Summer

Crop tops, culottes, backless everything: Along with every summer arrival comes a new way to minimize the amount of clothing you have to put on. And even though the heat isn’t oppressive just yet, that doesn’t mean you can’t get a jump on this season’s newest stay-cool styling trick: off-the-shoulder everything. The trend really began to pick up steam earlier this year, quickly spreading to just about every street-style star in existence. We like to think of the style as the crop top’s more conservative older sister—a perfectly inoffensive way to show some skin. And yes, the shoulder-baring silhouette can be totally work-appropriate: Even if bare shoulders (and, perhaps, an obvious sense of style) are frowned upon in your office, layer one of these picks over a tissue-thin turtleneck or a T-shirt in a similar tone for a monochromatic look. We culled 21 ways to get the look on any budget.

The Photos From Chanel’s Show In Cuba Are Absolutely Dreamy

Chanel continuously pushes the boundaries when it comes to its runway shows. But now, its all-mighty leader Karl Lagerfeld has literally crossed a boundary few of us in the United States can say we’ve crossed: He debuted Chanel’s 2017 Cruise Collection in Havana, Cuba. 

With the imminent change in rules and regulations over travel to Cuba from the U.S., it was only a matter of time before someone Lagerfeld pulled a move like this. While traveling there is still out of the realm of possibility for many, some, like beloved fashion site The Coveteur, got to experience it first hand. 

The website’s co-founders Jake Rosenberg and Stephanie Mark were on-site for the exclusive, dreamy event, capturing scenes from Havana’s beautiful surroundings and the show itself, which they explained had “essentially taken over an entire city plaza.” 

There were colorful cars! Mojitos and lemonade! Tilda Swinton! And arguably most shocking of all: Lagerfeld in an uncharacteristically colorful outfit.

Obsessed AF: 5 Beauty Products I Can’t Get Enough Of

As a beauty writer, I live and breathe products. There is a constant flow of new skincare, makeup and hair products making their way into my hands on the daily, so it’s a big deal when I declare that I’m “obsessed AF” with something. This series will detail the products that are *everything* to me right now. 

5thingsimobsessedwith2

I don’t know about you guys, but this month has been all about skincare for me. I found myself experimenting with close to 15 new products, which kinda made my skin freak out on me. Wah. As a result, I intentionally simplified my routine and focused on thoroughly cleansing my skin (thanks to a new cleanser, + two incred devices), instead of adding in more products. That said, I’m eternally makeup obsessed and always on the hunt for my next favorite lip product, which I might have found this month 😉 These are the five products I’m obsessed AF with.

obsessed1

1. FOREO Luna 2 ($ 199): Say goodbye to your Clarisonic, y’all — this rubbery face brush is everything. The gentle vibrations exfoliate dead skin cells, scrub the gunk from your pores and help get your skin seriously squeaky clean. The best part of this device is that the other side features a slightly rippled surface that’s designed to combat the signs of aging — this is truly a two-in-one product that I can’t live without.

obsessed2

2. Stacked Skincare Collagen Boosting Micro-Roller ($ 30): If you haven’t heard of micro-needling, you (and your skin!) are missing out. The treatment involves poking the top layer of your skin with a device covered with tiny needles, prompting your skin to go into overdrive repairing itself. You’ll wake up looking totally radiant, and your skin will appear plump and dewy. I’ve been micro-rolling for about one month — I do it 3 – 5 times per week — and it’s made such a huge difference in my skin.

obsessed4

3. Tarte Deep Dive Cleansing Gel ($ 25): If you’re looking for a gentle but powerful cleanser that removes everything (including stubborn waterproof makeup products), give this stuff a try. It smells amazing, gets the job done and won’t dry out your skin. I keep this adorable bottle in my shower and use it every morning to get my skin squeaky clean.

obsessed5

4. Embryolisse Smooth Radiant Complexion ($ 50): I put this silky gel on my face every morning before I do my makeup, and on days when I go bare-faced. I looooove it for its smoothing and blurring effects. It makes your skin look super healthy and gives you the perfect natural glow.

obsessed6

5. PERIPERA Peri’s Ink ($ 14): Korean beauty is everywhere these days, and I’ve become totally obsessed with skincare and makeup in this category. I use this lip ink in shade #4, which is a pretty, pinky berry color. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever used — and I’ve used a ton of lip products. You apply it as you would any normal liquid lipstick (it comes with a felt-tipped applicator), but be extra careful — this stuff stains your lips for a full 24 hours. At first, it’ll appear wet, but it will become matte as it sets. Once it’s dry, it. Is. ON. Seriously, it stays on through anything and everything, and doesn’t feel like you have anything on your lips at all. I use a makeup wipe to remove it at the end of the day. Absolutely love this stuff!

Erin Andrews’ DWTS Blog: ‘I Felt Like Christie Brinkley from National Lampoon’s Vacation’

While the majority of Hollywood’s elite dazzled and glowed (literally!) on the Met Gala red carpet, Erin Andrews and the rest of the Dancing With the Stars team had a show to put on! And according to the host, things got sleek, chic and a little sexy on Tuesday evening’s episode. Get all of the details on the host’s look, including her curve-skimming gown, dramatic hair and makeup and more!

Erin Andrews Dancing with the StarsAdam Taylor/ABC

For the taping, Andrews and her stylist Alyssa Greene selected a slinky, long-sleeve red Elie Saab gown, which she teamed with gold-accented accessories, including Manolo Blahnik heels and Royal and Sylvie Collection jewels.

“The past few episodes we went really girly and over the top, so for this look, we wanted to go back to sleek, sexy and fierce,” Greene told PeopleStyle. “It looks super simple from the front, but when she turns around, you see the asymmetric back detail with gold buttons. We added a bit of gold bling and a super simple Manolo sandal to complete the look.”

And while Andrews calls the sexy siren gown a “little dangerous,” she says the sleek design made her feel like a supermodel. “The slit was high and a little dangerous, the host confessed. “I had to watch it walking up those ballroom stairs. Again channeling the Met Ball, I was thinking, ‘What would Rosie [Huntington-Whiteley] do?’ She was rocking a slit beautifully [last night], too!”

As for the host’s makeup, makeup artist Lisa Ashley was all about creating a “dramatic yet simple” look for the evening, opting for a bold eye and statement lip moment. To get Andrews’ smoky eye, the makeup pro began by accenting the star’s eyes with matte cranberry and apricot eye shadow shades (by Viseart) to match the rich shade of her dress and blended them into a smoky state. (As Ashley points out, “smoky doesn’t necessarily have to be blacks and grays — it’s the technique and blending rather than the colors used.”)

After contouring with the Laura Mercier Flawless Contour Palette, Ashley selected a matching cranberry hue for the star’s lips, which is actually the byproduct of many different shades. “Creating the perfect lip is never simple, she confessed. “I can sometimes use up to five different products.” But for this look, the makeup pro mixed together L.A. Girl Semi-Permanent Auto Lip Liner in Dark Plum with KIKO Precision Lip Liner #305 and added sheen with Girlactik Pout Shine in Stunning.

As for Andrews’ hair, she and her stylist Ryan Randall were up for trying something new. “I’ve always wanted to try slicking my hair back for the show,” she told PeopleStyle. “[Last night] we thought this was the right dress to do it with.”

“Week after week, Erin has trusted us to deliver looks out of her comfort zone, and tonight’s look is no exception,” Randall told PeopleStyle. “We took an editorial approach with this wet, sleek and chic style. Red carpet worthy most definitely, with a nod to the Met Ball happening tonight in N.Y.C.”

The hair pro prepped Andrews’ wet hair with Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer and blew it out, straight and off the face. To get the slick style, Randall re-wet the roots with the same primer spray and added a layer of Moco De Gorila gel for “an ultimate, set it and forget it” slicked-back style. He added slight texture to the back of the do with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray as a finishing touch.

As for the final look? Andrews loved it — and even made a reference to a favorite supermodel vet. “I was joking around and said I felt like Christie Brinkley when she was filming the pool scene in National Lampoon’s Vacation, ‘So you gonna go for it?’”

But in between shooting, Andrews said she was keeping tabs on the fashion happening on the East Coast (and playing with puppies!). “Backstage during the show we were looking at all the Met Ball photos, and we were laughing about how this was our West Coast version of it.”

Brian Trunzo Leaves Carson Street

Brian Trunzo is leaving Carson Street.
Trunzo cofounded the New York City store in 2012 with Matt Breen, whom he met at law school. He declined to provide details on his reasons for departing or his plans.
Trunzo is leaving the brand while it’s in growth mode. The former lawyers recently relocated the men’s store to a larger space on Greene Street in SoHo and shifted its brand offering to focus more on progressive designer merchandise. They also had plans to set up shop in either Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., or Chicago in fall 2017.
Additionally, the founders launched a separate men’s wear line, Deveaux, earlier this year. The American-made collection, which will be in stores for fall, has been picked up by Totokaelo, United Arrows and Biotop in Japan, and Spruce, a men’s wear store in Chicago that’s set to open this year.
“Carson Street is, and will always be, a defining body of work for me. But there’s more work to do out there,” said Trunzo.

L’Dezen Fine Jewelry Launches in London

GROWING UP: L’Dezen, the Hong Kong-based fine jewelry brand, is breaking into the London market via the omnichannel retailer Plukka.
The label will be carried exclusively at Plukka’s London boutique, which recently opened in Burlington Arcade.
Plukka will also stock the label exclusively at its Madison Avenue boutique in New York, which is set to open later this year.
“London is unlike other cities which are keen to jump on all things new. You have to be more established, so I waited five years to enter the London market, to have enough experience and background behind me,” said Payal Shah, the label’s founder and designer.
Shah is making something of a comeback in London: Six years ago she graduated from the University of Westminster, where she studied architecture and urban design.
Shah described her customer as: “a woman in her 40s and very knowledgeable. She has already read about the brand or been to jewelry markets, so she is very specific about what she likes.”
The label is characterized by statement pieces that she creates using sliced diamonds and a variety of colors of 18-carat gold.
Among the highlights are a pair of drop earrings with different shades of sliced diamonds arranged to resemble a leopard pattern,

Austin Scarlett Bridal Spring 2017

Gowns minimal in glamour but strong in silhouette have become Austin Scarlett’s signature, and for spring he kept his collection paired down, showing only five looks. Inspired by a night out at Carnegie Hall, each gown had a musical name. Key looks included the “Allegra,” an off-the-shoulder trumpet gown with grosgrain ribbon detailing, as well as the “Serenade,” a dramatic, dropped tulle strapless ballgown with 3-D floral appliqués. And for the minimalist bride, he created the strapless silk “Sonata”: a tailored A-line look that had clean lines and a modern touch.

Lucky Brand and Ornamental Conifer’s Collaboration: Denim, Leather and Moto

Lucky Brand is racing into the realm of high-end collaborations with British artist Ornamental Conifer.
For the Los Angeles-based company’s fall collection, the artist also known as Nicolai Sclater is hand-painting bandanas, T-shirts, and leather and denim jackets in bright colors and his signature hand-lettering style. The items are bound to strike up a conversation with their lightning bolts, New York and Los Angeles area codes and other imagery that pays tribute to Lucky’s moto heritage.
The tie-up is Conifer’s latest project in the fashion industry. Once raised by hippies, kicked out of school at 15 and worked as a mechanic, Conifer has worked with brands such as Nixon and Alpinestars.
Lucky is also making moves to expand into a lifestyle business. In contrast to the rebellious feel of Conifer’s creations, it included a men’s formal suit in its fall lineup for the first time.
With this collaboration, Conifer took a hands-on approach. According to Lucky’s chief creative officer Kin Ying Lee, he inspected the denim to select the fabric that would pick up his paint the best. Whereas the bandanas and T-shirts retail for about $ 50, the jackets range between $ 1,000 and $ 2,000. In comparison, an embroidered jean jacket from the company’s premium

10 Mother’s Day Gifts That Are Under $25

When you’re on a budget, there’s nothing better than bringing your mom breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day–or buying one of these ten covetable beauty gifts to keep Mom feeling pretty and pampered all year round.
For Allure, by Kristie Dash.

Nügg Face Masks set
This set comes with four single-serving face-mask pods. There are two for revitalizing and plumping (flaxseed and peppermint oil), one for hydrating (camellia-seed oil and spirulina extract), and one for exfoliating (cranberry-seed oil and jojoba beads). She can use them four days in a row (as directed) for brighter, fresher-looking skin, or she can save them for when she travels–like coming to visit you (and hopefully doing your laundry).

You would never eat blackberries and dill at the same time. But Aveeno figured out that the combination of ingredients prompts skin to build new elastin, which helps keep it firm. Not only does this night cream contain the potent duo, but it’s also extremely hydrating–and as silky as some creams we’ve tried at double the price.

Brace Yourselves: Halle Berry Just Got a Super Short Haircut

Halle Berry has always been a woman who can pull off any hairstyle her heart desires. From a pixie cut to chest-length natural waves and everything in between, the actress has never shied away from a style, easily pulling it off without a second thought. But Berry’s latest cut might be her most daring, difficult and fashion-forward to date. The 49-year-old actress debuted a freshly shorn bowl cut while arriving in N.Y.C.

Halle Berry Splash News (2)



The last time we saw the actress out in public was at the MTV Movie Awards where she sported her standard shoulder-lento lob with piecey bangs. But since then, she’s clearly taken up her do several inches, arriving at JFK Airport with her strands now only barely longer than her bangs. Bowl cuts generally get a pretty bad wrap, but Halle’s wavy texture totally saves this cut from falling into the bad hair day category, giving volume and the look’s sense of undone effortlessness.

RELATED VIDEO: Halle’s Changing Looks!

RELATED PHOTOS: Halle Berry: A Timeline of Her Ups and Downs

As women who rocked an accidental bowl cut or two in our lifetimes courtesy of our mom’s hairdresser “skills,” we wish Berry was around to make us feel better about the look, because of course she pulls it off.

But why go so short? The star’s movie Kidnap is in post-production, and maybe she really chose to dive into the role with a daring cut. Maybe she has a new wig master à la Kylie Jenner and Tokyo Stylez and they are “trying out new lewks.” Or maybe her daughter Nahla accidentally cut her own hair — and Halle cut hers in solidarity. (We actually know the real reason: It’s cut for her role in Kingsmen, which is currently filming in London. But we can’t help speculating for fun.)

What do you think of Halle Berry’s new look? Sound off below!

Chrome Hearts Introduces Incense as Part of First Fragrance Collection

Having built a world filled with distinctively designed macarons, pizza cutters, leather jackets, sunglasses and chunky rings over the past 28 years, Chrome Hearts now wants to make it smell like spicy wood and leathery elixir.
As part of its first fragrance collection, the Los Angeles-based fashion and accessories brand is introducing incense this summer. The debut scent, called +33+, is the result of owners Laurie Lynn and Richard Stark, alongside their eldest daughter Jesse Jo, spending months smelling and contemplating various aromas.
Blending spices, wood and leather, +33+ is the only scent available for the incense, which comes bundled in 33 sticks. A package including a sterling silver holder retails for $ 200 and a refill set of sticks costs $ 100. True to Chrome Hearts’ rock ‘n’ roll creed, the black sticks are wrapped in its signature cross motif and the white box is embossed in Gothic script.
In addition to +33+, the company is working on a second scent to infuse an eau de parfum, roller oil, candles, scented nail polish and solid perfume. Yet to be priced, the new products are slated for a fall rollout.
While the company stocks its high-end products at Bergdorf Goodman, Colette and Selfridges, it plans to

In contrast, her fit-and-flare “Antoinette” gown, a sleek off-the-shoulder style with a sheer illusion bodice and seamed skirt, stood out for its simple elegance.

Swatch Opens New Times Square Flagship

NEW YORK — The Swatch Group marked the opening of its new Times Square flagship for the Americas on Tuesday night.
The unit, measuring 4,300 square feet, is intended to provide shoppers with an interactive experience.
Located at 1535 Broadway, the multilevel store is in the former breezeway of the Marriott Marquee hotel. It is markedly larger than the Swiss firm’s former Times Square flagship at 1528 Broadway, which measured 3,125 square feet.
Creative director Carlo Giordanetti told WWD of Swatch’s New York upgrade: “Certainly one of our major objectives is to make the space much lighter, brighter, more open and transparent — for Swatch the notion of transparency is a very important part of our DNA.
“We love interaction — especially a location like Times Square — you need to engage people much more than just with product,” he added of the store’s entertainment factor.
The store is retrofitted with an interactive color wall that morphs when shoppers spin a “watch gear” fixture. Interactive digitalized viewfinders provide a virtual sightseeing tour of the city. Many of the watch display cases were built to mimic New York iconography, including hot dog stands. The company’s interchangeable “Pop” collection will be a focal point of merchandise stocked.

Jourdan Dunn on Her Two Met Gala 2016 Balmain Looks: ‘I Felt Really Good About Myself’

If you thought Jourdan Dunn killed it with her two Met Gala looks—both by Balmain—you’re not the only one. The British model herself agrees with you. “Last night I felt really good about myself,” she told PeopleStyle when we caught up with her on the set of a campaign shoot today. She paired the look with Stuart Weitzman heels and Eva Fehren jewelry.

Jourdan Dunn Met Gala 2016David Fisher/REX/Shutterstock; Kevin Mazur/Getty


Dunn fell right in line with the night’s overall trend: Bold silver gowns with a robot-like inspiration, a perfect fit for the Met Gala’s theme of ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.’ Kim Kardashian, Kylie Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Cindy Crawford, Alessandra Ambrosio and Doutzen Kroes joined Dunn in wearing Balmain and, together, they walked the carpet as the #BalmainArmy, a hashtag the fashion house created in the past (and has stuck as a way to describe fans of the brand).

Instagram Photo

For Dunn’s look, she worked directly with Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing. “Olivier sent two sketches—one was a short one and one was a long one,” she explained. “I was drawn to the long one, I thought it was amazing. When I had my fitting for it, it all came together.” As soon as her glam squad got a whiff of the direction, they suggested she pair the look with gray, silvery hair. “I thought it was a cool idea,” she said.

Instagram Photo

But despite the fact that she looked calm and collected in all of the photos, she admitted it’s actually a very nerve-wracking experience. “There are people everywhere, like waiting for you to walk out of your hotel and then all the paparazzi,” she said. “ It’s huge. So I was in the car, and I was nervous. But once I got on the red carpet, I just had to own it and feel myself.”

Instagram Photo

RELATED PHOTOS: Every Gorgeous Gown at the 2016 Met Gala

It’s a long way that she’s come from her first gala appearance in 2009 (below, with Karlie Kloss). “I remember when I first attended seven years ago, I felt so out of place and like I shouldn’t really be there,” she said. “Now I feel I do deserve to be here, I’ve worked hard. I like being in that mind frame.”

Jourdan Dunn First Met Gala LookErik C. Pendzich/REX/Shutterstock


After the gala concluded, Dunn slipped into a black sequined mini Balmain to head downtown to the Gilded Lily after-party. “The second look is all about being able to move and dance and just feel good,” she said. “With a Balmain dress, sometimes that’s a bit impossible because they’re so structured. But in my fitting, Olivier wanted to make sure I was able to move. It’s all about something fun and be able to move and get down in and look good in.”

But she didn’t change in the car. “Some people do that but I went back to my hotel, chilled, refreshed my makeup and changed really quick and headed out,” she said. (And no, the Army did not travel together.)

RELATED PHOTOS: The Biggest Trends at the 2016 Met Gala

So, how can regular people get into the #BalmainArmy? There’s no boot camp, unfortunately, she said. “I don’t know how I became a member,” she added, “but I’m happy to be in the army.”

Carson Street to Close Store

Carson Street will cease to exist.
The men’s wear store, which was originally named Carson Street Clothiers, will close its doors on June 15.
In a press release, cofounder Matt Breen stated the following:
“When our doors opened in March 2013, we had one goal: to bring something new to the men’s clothing market, both in New York City and around the world. We approached the business from a ‘fan-first’ perspective, which fueled our desire to continuously bring new product to the market, find and cultivate new brands and relationships, and keep Carson Street interesting to its loyal, amazing customers.”
This closure comes shortly after cofounder Brian Trunzo announced he was leaving the business to pursue different projects stating, “Carson Street is, and will always be, a defining body of work for me. But there’s more work to do out there.”
The retailer seemed to be in growth mode. Just a couple of weeks ago, WWD reported on Carson Street‘s new, larger store on Greene Street — they closed the Crosby Street Store — and its brand roster revamp, which moved away from tailored clothing and into more progressive designer brands including E.

Maria Pinto to Start ‘Salon’ Series of Talks in Chicago

FASHION TALKS: Maria Pinto is about to launch a quarterly salon series to engage her customers in a conversation about fashion, art and culture at her M2057 Style Studio in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. But first, the fashion designer, whose designs have been worn by First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Brooke Shields, will participate in the city’s second-annual Lake FX Summit and Expo, to be held May 13 to 15, joining the likes of artist Nick Cave, chef Graham Elliot and jazz musician Ramsey Lewis.

Lanvin Said Closing Chicago Store, St. John Moving In

ADIEU, LANVIN: Lanvin will close its Chicago boutique at 116 East Oak Street in the Gold Coast neighborhood, according to a source familiar with retail real estate in the area. The French house opened the store, which was once home to well-known retailer Ultimo, in March 2013. The source, who asked to remain anonymous, said St. John would be moving into the space after renovating the store. “It’s a pretty blank canvas inside the Lanvin space,” the source said.
Calls to the Lanvin and St. John stores confirmed the stores would be closing. St. John has a boutique at 919 North Michigan Avenue. A Lanvin salesperson said the store would be closing within two weeks. An e-mail to Lanvin public relations was not returned.
A story in Crain’s reported in 2012 that Fred Latsko paid $ 7.4 million for the former Ultimo store and Lanvin rented the 6,000-square-foot building. It was a 10-year-lease, with two five-year renewal options.
In addition to Chicago, Lanvin has stores in five U.S. cities: Costa Mesa, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami and New York.

Her hair has gone from dark brown to the blondest of blonde. It’s been stick straight (hi, 2007), jet black, and, thanks in no small part to hairstylist Jen Atkin, effortlessly wavy.

We polled our editors on their go-to ways—products, tools, a mix of products and tools—to degunk their pores.

The 3 Changes You Need to Make for Great Spring Skin

For Allure, by Lauren Hubbard.

If you’re a dedicated Allure reader, it won’t come as a shock that you need to switch up your skin-care products with the seasons: lighter, more sheer for summer; pile on the moisture in winter. But what about the in-between seasons, like now-upon-us spring, when the temperature and humidity start to rise but you’re still pulling on a jacket instead of sweating literally everywhere? Here are the changes to make to stave off the great weather-changing skin freakout.

Lighten up. The low humidity levels and bracing winds of winter call for a heavy-duty moisturizer, even for oilier skin types. But as warmer weather rolls in with those famous April showers, December-appropriate lotions start to feel pore-smothering. Try switching to a lighter gel-cream formula, like Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel or Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Oil-Free Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream Moisturizer. The magic combo of lightweight hyaluronic acid and occlusive glycerin pulls in water from the air and locks it into skin so you stay hydrated without feeling like you’re wearing a blanket on your face.

Scrub down. The sudden influx of moisture out in the world can also mean a sudden excess of moisture on your skin, which can in turn lead to totally unspringy dullness and clogged pores. While you have to be careful with overexfoliating delicate winter skin, spring is the perfect time to step up your regimen slightly. Since you’re not in full-on summer mode yet, try an exfoliator that uses salicylic acid, like Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid, instead of a harsh scrub. “Salicylic acid is excellent at removing pore-clogging oil, and it doesn’t traumatize the skin like a physical exfoliant,” says Joshua Zeichner, a dermatologist in New York City.

Do some spring cleaning. As with your moisturizer, you need to tone it down when it comes to your daily cleanser. If you’ve been favoring a skin-coddling cleansing balm or cream cleanser for the harsh winter months, swapping it out for a foaming gel will help clear away any excess oil from the naturally shine-prone T-zone. We like Eau Thermale Avene Cleanance Gel Cleanser, which cleans thoroughly without stripping skin and also has oil-controlling monolaurin to help your skin stay balanced.

This Hoodie Is Specially Made For Avid Huggers

These sweatshirts are making it easier to hug it out. 

The clothing brand Chukcha launched a Kickstarter last month to support its special hoodies that have a pocket in both the front and back called Together Wear. So basically, your boo thang or BFF can slip their hands into your hoodie back pocket for a perfect cozy hug. 

Seriously, you and boo can just hang out in that embrace. 

The cold won’t even bother you, anyway. 

Professional freeskier Artem Glebov says he came up with the idea for the hoodie after falling in love, he says in a video about the product. 

“Being in love, I realized how important it can be just hugging with my sweet,” Glebov said in a video. He later explained that that product “gives you the ability to share the world with your sweetheart and feel like two parts of a whole one.”

Seems like the idea has appealed to huggers across the Internet. The Kickstarter raised its $ 30,000 goal in three days. The fundraiser is still ongoing and the brand hopes to expand the number of models and colors. They also plan to add an +XXXL size. 

The brand plans to start manufacturing the Together Wear hoodies in June and begin shipment a month later. 

‘Til then, it looks like we’ll have to hug the old fashioned way.

Kaia Gerber Hires the Kardashians’ Stylist, Making Her Transformation into Kendall Jenner Almost Complete

The Kardashian ladies have a very particular style M.O. It’s an oft-imitated uniform that typically consists of a whole lot of body con dresses, plunging necklines and bra tops mixed in with a handful of floor-skimming dusters and more chokers than anyone previously knew existed on this planet. The family’s go-to stylist, Monica Rose, has extended this style domination to stars including Chrissy Teigen and Gigi Hadid, but perhaps her most formidable conquest has just occurred.

We already warned you that this day was nigh, but the day is now officially here: teen model Kaia Gerber (a.k.a. Cindy Crawford’s daughter) has enlisted the services of Monica Rose, and her up-and-coming-Kendall moment has arrived.

Kaia Gerber Monica Rose style CoachellaPap Nation/Splash News Online

Rose is the driving force behind all those quintessentially Karjenner looks (think everything from Kendall‘s love affair with a wide leg trouser to Kim‘s year of chokers with a touch of fur).

Her roster of A-list celebrity model clientele is steadily growing (in addition to Teigen and Hadid, she’s got Bella Hadid, Chanel Iman and more). And she’s just signed on with Kaia, the 14-year-old up-and-coming model, who made her Coachella debut under the stylist’s sartorial tutelage this weekend.

For the first outfit Monica created for the 14-year-old, she went with a look we’re going to refer to as “festival goth,” pairing a Forever 21 top with a sheer black chiffon Michelle Hébert kimono, One x OneTeaspoon high-rise black shorts, a lip-print scarf from Rockins, Ray-Ban sunglasses, boots from Alexander Wang, and a backpack and jewelry from Chrome Hearts (a natural choice, given Kaia currently serves as the face of the last two brands). Of course, chokers and layers were key.

Her second outfit was right out of the Karjenner playbook as well: a tiny romper with a gauzy duster, accented with suede heels and a scarf-turned-choker.

While we all know Kaia won’t have truly reached peak Kardashian until she starts wearing neon-hued wigs, sheer Wolford turtlenecks, and Yeezys with every ensemble, we think it’s safe to say she’s about to follow in Kendall’s well-shod footsteps right onto some major catwalks.

What do you think of Kaia’s Coachella look? What other styles would you like to see her and Monica Rose try out?

The Most Crazy-Expensive Outfits at Coachella: A $3,350 Dress as a Shirt! A $3,980 Denim Shorts Outfit!

For most Coachella-goers, a weekend in the desert is a time to get grungy (and plan their shower-less beauty routines accordingly). But for celebs, the dirt, heat and sweat somehow don’t have any effect on their style. In fact, they pack only the most expensive, high-end, straight-off-the-runway pieces for their weekend in the desert: One star actually wore $ 13,584.99 worth of designer duds. Read on to find out who!

Kiernan Shipka Coachella 2016Ari Perilstein/Getty; Michael Kovac/Getty; REX/Shu

Kiernan Shipka may be 16 years old, but she’s not like any other teenager on the planet. While most teens hit the mall, shopping stores like Forever 21 and H&M, for their fringe and jorts, for Shipka it’s all high-end all the time. In fact, three of the outfits she sported throughout the weekend racked in at a grand total of $ 13,584.99. You read that right.

The first look is far more sensible than the rest (yes, we’re calling her $ 695 floral Rebecca Taylor midi sensible) and it’s not just because she paired it with comfy New Balance sneakers ($ 109.99). It’s because her denim butterfly-printed Valentino two-piece rings up at $ 3,980 ($ 2,190 for the shorts, $ 1,790 for the top). Plus, her Stella McCartney platforms cost $ 1,100.

But she didn’t stop there: She topped her $ 4,000 blue jean getup with another haute piece. Her watercolor dress is from Dior’s Spring 2016 collection and retails for $ 5,500 — but because she lined hers with a top and short underneath, that adds another $ 2,200 to the bill. (The $ 1,100 platforms made another appearance here too.)

Lily James to Model for Burberry; Ryan Reynolds Already Saving Trees With Eddie Bauer

Following in the legendary footsteps of Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne would be a formidable task for even the most sought-after of supermodels. So when Burberry went looking for someone to take their place as the face for its My Burberry fragrance, the company had to find someone who could live up to that level of beauty and sophistication. And as impossible as it may seem, the brand actually managed to cast the role perfectly with British actress Lily James.

Lily James My BurberryKarwai Tang/WireImage

Despite the fact that James has starred in a handful of big box office films, including Cinderella, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and of course the TV smash-hit Downton Abbey, this announcement marks the actress first global advertising campaign ever. She’ll serve as the face for My Burberry Black, “an intense and sensual” new fragrance, starring in a film and photo series shot by Mario Testino debuting in August.

“I am thrilled to be officially joining the Burberry family,” James enthused, “I am so proud to be British, so it really means a lot…I don’t want to give away too much but I had a lot of fun showing a different side of myself.” Does this mean we could see a drastic hair color change in the actress’s near future?

And James isn’t the only thespian with a new modeling gig. Ryan Reynolds is also serving as a philanthropic ambassador for Eddie Bauer’s #OneTree campaign, which supports American forests. The actor is bringing awareness to the brand’s Earth Day initiative in which people can simply text a number to donate $ 5 which will plant 5 trees. Eddie Bauer will match donations up to 75,000 trees to help begin to counteract deforestation and save endangered ecosystems.

And while there’s no celebs fronting Athleta’s new campaign, the sports-focused brand is putting female athletes of all ages in the spotlight with a new video series called “Launching Girls.” The shorts are meant to show women and girls how to empower one another and lift each other up to achieve their maximum potential. The first video, shown above, features the D(n)A Dance Collective and shows the sense of sisterhood this high profile troop feel for one another.

Paris Hotels Set for Full Occupancy During Couture Week

NO VACANCY: Paris Couture Week and Euro 2016 are set to lift Paris’ hoteliers’ spirits, in the grim climate for tourism following the Paris and Brussels attacks.
Paris Couture Week, slated from July 3 to 7, is to coincide with the UEFA soccer tournament, which is to run for its part from June 10 to July 10. The quarterfinals match set for July 3 at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis outside Paris is to fall on kickoff day of Couture Week.
“We’re typically already at the highest level of occupancy during fashion week,” a spokeswoman for the Plaza Athénée said, expecting an even busier week this season due to Euro championship factor, based on the early feedback of the hotel’s booking department. Spokeswomen for the Royal Monceau and the Bristol Paris echoed the sentiment. (July 10, the day of the final match, is unavailable on the booking section of the Bristol Paris’ Web site.)
The Ritz Paris is still cornering its reopening date — initially planned on March 14 —  following a fire that broke out on the top floor of the hotel on Jan. 19. June 1 is the first date when guests can start booking on the hotel’s Web site, with

Yael Sonia Launches Collection of Sterling Silver Jewelry for Men

Yael Sonia is growing her men’s collection.
The jewelry designer is working with sterling silver, which is a first for her brand, and incorporating other materials including leather, cord and organic gems.
“For our men’s assortment, we found it important to also tap into a metal more accessible than gold, while still keeping it exclusive,” Sonia said. “Even though men are spending more on themselves and there is definitely a rise in demand for men’s jewelry, the amount of money they spend on jewelry is not the same as women.”
The collection, which retails from $ 325 to $ 1,150, includes architectural bracelets, cuff links and pendant ring necklaces. “I think people appreciate the dual wearability you get from a single piece,” Sonia told WWD.
Sonia, who launched the men’s line last year, said stud earrings have also resonated with the male consumer.
“There’s a lack of men’s earrings in the fine jewelry market and it seems there is an increasing demand for them as the perception of jewelry for men changes,” she said.
The line is sold at Odin, the Yael Sonia e-commerce site, and Swoonery, a jewelry e-commerce start-up. Sonia said she wants to keep distribution limited and focus on the one-on-one, personalization experience at her

We Can Definitively Say We’ve Never Seen Taylor Swift Wear This Before

Taylor Swift, is that you?!

The singer recently stepped out in a look that’s so far from her signature crop top and circle skirt combo that it required a comically over-the-top double take. Is this the further influence of boyfriend Calvin Harris on her off-duty style? We investigate.

Taylor Swift off brand styleAKM-GSI



Over the last couple of years, Swift’s ultra-feminine style (think: girlie matching sets, prim purses and glam heels) has become her signature. But lately, the 1989 singer been stepping out in looks that are so far from her go-to girly and frilly ensembles to much more dressed-down outfits. And it’s all culminated in this.

Swift stepped out in a pair of itty-bitty denim shorts, an oversize camo-printed military jacket, an oversize black Saint Laurent bag and … a pair of sneakers! Yes, the queen of heels ditched her usual sky-high footwear for a toned-down (and comfortable) pair of Coachella-inspired, fringe Saint Laurent sneakers during a girlfriend get-together in Malibu.

This isn’t the only look that supports our theory on Tay’s evolving style. A few weeks ago, she wore a show-stopping silver metallic two-piece set (technically still in her style wheelhouse) with sexy cutouts and a daringly high hemline. She teamed the form-fitting number with strappy black sandals and a Jimmy Choo burgundy chain-strap purse. (And we can’t forget her weekend filled with sheer, shimmery LBDS.)

But we’re still stuck on those jean shorts and fringed sneakers. Is she prepping for a Calvin Harris set at Coachella? Will we next see her in a crochet bikini top and Frye boots? We’ll find out this weekend.

Chanel Invests in French Lacemaker Sophie Hallette

LACEMAKING: Chanel has become a minority investor in French lacemaker Sophie Hallette’s parent company Groupe Holesco, according to Sophie Hallette chief executive officer and Holesco president Romain Lescroart.
“The partnership aims to perpetuate the historical lace sector — the pride of Calais and Caudry’s heritage,” Chanel said. “It also aims to maintain in France a unique know-how and the essential Leavers, these bicentennial machines that allow to create very high-end and labeled lace, which is crucial to meet the demand of haute couture and creation.”

The new partnership comes as Groupe Holesco is in the bidding to acquire compatriot Codentel, an ailing industrial lacemaker that entered receivership in December. A Chinese firm is among the other bidders, the same player that recently won the battle for another ailing lacemaker, Desseilles, against Groupe Holesco, following a French court’s ruling.
The next court hearing for the future of Codentel is due on Thursday. “The partnership coincides with the Codentel file but it’s a long-term strategic partnership for the future of lacemaking in Calais,” Lescroart said.

Tommy Bahama Using 37.5 Technology for New Product Offering

Tommy Bahama is introducing a new category of product for Father’s Day and has turned to Cocona 37.5 Technology to power it.
The technology uses active particles to capture and release moisture vapor to maintain optimum temperature and relative humidity in the body. This results in better maintaining an ideal core temperature while increasing comfort and enhancing performance.
Up until now, the vast majority of the products that have used 37.5 technology have been activewear or outerwear brands. But Tommy Bahama has created a yarn that blends silk and 37.5 and will introduce it in its camp shirts.
Bradley O’Brien, executive vice president of design and product development for the Seattle-based manufacturer, said Island Zone was “largely driven by 37.5. We believe that adding technology in our iconic products is a whole new way to get someone to buy something new.”
While the concept will launch with camp shirts, Tommy Bahama will offer Island Zone polos for holiday and shorts, which will blend 37.5 yarns with cotton, for spring 2017.
“We’re building a whole lifestyle of product around it,” she said.
In addition to the 37.5 product, Tommy Bahama will also offer hybrid board shorts, rash guards and wicking polo shirts under the Island Zone tag

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Share the Same NSFW Graffiti-Covered – And It’s Causing Controversy

It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West love a twinning couple moment. After all, nothing says “bae belongs to me” quite like swaddling yourself in a beloved piece of clothing stolen out of your S.O.’s wardrobe. And that’s precisely what Mrs. West did yesterday, arriving at LAX in a pair of Yeezy PVC booties and her husband’s controversial, graffiti-scrawled jean jacket.

Kim Kardashian Kanye West jean jacketSplash News (2)



Kim’s airport look was pure 90s rock and ‘roll glam, pairing her husband’s jacket with a black choker, button-up tank, ripped skinny jeans, a Birkin, and of course the aforementioned Yeezy boots the rapper had custom-made for his betrothed. While the reality star looked effortless making her way out of town, especially considering her standard latex attire, the borrowed jacket in question is currently at the center of a bit of artistic controversy.

RELATED VIDEO: North West Steals Kanye’s New York Fashion Show Spotlight

As it turns out, West’s beat-up, scribbled on denim isn’t the product of a late night punk music-fueled DIY session, but rather the work of Australian designer Pauly Bonomelli who has created a number of custom one-off pieces for Kanye, as well as A$ AP Rocky, featuring his signature heavily collaged, graffiti-inspired style.

Instagram Photo

RELATED PHOTOS: 13 Times Kim Kardashian Wore the Exact Same Post-Maternity Outfit

This particular piece is an homage to a real jacket worn by a homeless punk teenager named Tweeky Dave who was immortalized in the photography of Jim Goldberg and featured prominently in his 1995 book, Raised by Wolves. (Are you starting to see why this particular monograph may have caught Kanye’s eye?) The rapper’s jacket isn’t an exact replica, but it does pull a number of lines of text straight from Goldberg’s images of the drug-addled teen, and according to i-D the photographer is not happy about it.

Goldberg, who still owns Dave’s original design, told the magazine, “For the jacket to become sold as fashion — it really put me over the edge. The spirit and intention of Kanye could be right, but the manner in which he is presenting it is wrong. All meaning has been lost. [He’s] forgetting history — not acknowledging where that design came from is wrong.”

Kanye has yet to make an official statement regarding the piece of denim or his artistic appropriation, however, it’s kind of an amazing testament to the fashion influence of Ye that when he wears a jacket emblazoned with “Nazi tweeks rule” and “F— Off and Die” no one even bats an eye.
