The Makeup Museum Scratches the Surface of Cosmetics

The Makeup Museum, opening on May 1 in Manhattan, isn’t just another pretty face.
The 3,500-square-foot space at 94 Gansevoort Street will delve beneath the surface of the glossy industry, revealing the backstories of key figures and highlighting pivotal moments in the history of the beauty business.
Niche museums such as the Museum of Ice Cream and Sloomoo Institute, a museum dedicated to the squishy, oozy material created by Mattel, allow visitors to explore in depth a topic they’re passionate about, and have drawn large crowds.
The Makeup Museum is angling to break into that category. Its inaugural exhibition, “Pink Jungle: 1950s Makeup in America,”  will home in on the glamorous era. “It’s such a perfect decade to start with,” said Doreen Bloch, the museum’s cofounder, and chief executive officer of Poshly, a beauty research company. “There were all these amazing inventions, like automatic mascara and long-wearing lipsticks. There’s nostalgia for the cat eye, and other looks of the times.”
Nordstrom Inc. will merchandise the gift shop as the museum’s exclusive retail partner, providing a selection of Fifties-inspired items as visitors make their way out of the exhibit. There will be products to create the perfect cat eye, red-carpet essentials, iconic fragrances, red lipsticks,

Mulberry RTW Fall 2020

Johnny Coca has found a winning formula for Mulberry’s ready-to-wear collections: It’s all about keeping it simple and focused on all things British.
That’s why for fall 2020 he wanted to revisit and refine some of the codes he established last season, namely check. He reworked the pattern into feminine silhouettes such as slim tailoring, midi skirts and chic, A-line dresses that featured muted hues, reminiscent of the English countryside.
Elsewhere, Coca added splashes of red check to channel a more punk feeling — his ultimate aim being to establish the check as a monogram of sorts for Mulberry.
There was a small eveningwear portion, too, featuring even more British classics in the form of floral and brocade shift dresses and tops.
But the main focus was on offering a daywear wardrobe, including plenty of outerwear, from cool check trenches to capes and pea coats featuring subtle military details.
“There are so many brands out there, so for us it’s all about trying to be clever and offering the right pieces that you need in your wardrobe and can relate to our accessories, too,” said Coca, whose focused approach is refreshing in a saturated market and aligns with the company’s sustainability ambitions.
He applied the same thinking

Shanghai Fashion Week Goes Online With Tmall

LONDON — The postponed Shanghai Fashion Week is now partnering with Alibaba’s Tmall to create an online platform for Chinese designers and commercial brands to showcase their fall 2020 collection from March 24 to 30 as an alternative solution amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The schedule is expected to be revealed mid-March as the application for the online fashion week has just begun. Brands will be showcasing their fall 2020 collections as well as selling items from the current season via live-streaming.
Lv Xiaolei, vice secretary of the Shanghai Fashion Week Committee, told WWD that Shanghai Fashion Week would miss a big opportunity, if it doesn’t embrace new technology.
“Tmall promises to direct millions of traffic [views] to our designers. This means brands will be able to generate more sales, and many of them can be saved from bankruptcy amid this difficult time,” she said.
She also revealed that if the online fashion week goes well, it will continue to be included as part of Shanghai Fashion Week in the future.
Showrooms and trade shows, key components of Shanghai Fashion Week, will need to figure out a time slot of their own.
Yeli Gu, owner of Ontimeshow, the biggest trade show during Shanghai Fashion Week, said it won’t

French Fashion Body Spotlights Eight Emerging Designers

TAKE TWO: The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, French fashion’s governing body, continues to ramp up its support of emerging designers. Integrating international brands for the first time, its Sphere showroom, which debuted in January, replacing Designers Apartment, showcases eight young labels in its second edition, five of which are also showing on the official calendar this Paris Fashion Week.
Swiss designer Kévin Germanier, a finalist for last year’s LVMH Prize, is among the international entrants with his flamboyant collection made from upcycled and deadstock materials.
With wholesale prices ranging from 80 euros to 5,000 euros, the designer’s stockists include Matchesfashion.com.
Also Nigerian designer Kenneth Ize, who made his Paris runway debut earlier in the week, was hoping to pick up international clients through the showroom. “I’m ready for market, I want people to know that,” he said.
Returning designer Juan Hernandez Daels, of equestrian-inspired contemporary label Sadaels, offered a collection incorporating rosette motifs into exclusive prints on velvet and silk, as well as reworked gaucho pants and accessories inspired by his native Argentina.
For his third collection, Alexandre Blanc added volume to his Thirties-inspired lineup with heavy draping, contrasting this with his print pieces based on paintings.
“I’m really impressed with

Leonard Paris RTW Fall 2020

Christine Phung set out to update bourgeois basics by applying a sporty veneer. She mixed up the silky house classics with technical Neoprene fabric coats, chunky wool tweed pencil skirts and capes, a smattering of embroidered leather flower patches and, for shine, shimmery jacquards.
Drilling down on the archives — prints are the very essence of the brand — she left them intact but still found space to do her stuff, zeroing in on blank spaces, which she used to add asymmetry and contrast. In one look, a silk blouse carried the signature house orchid print on one side, but was solid on the other — with a pocket. Paired with handsome high-waisted trousers, slightly flared, Seventies-style, it made for a handsome retro-update.
Some looks verged on weird. Shimmery see-through taffeta felt modern as a Windbreaker, but a bit out-there when fashioned into puffy sleeves on an ankle-skimming dress, while the proportions on a trim, collarless jacket with rounded shoulders felt slightly odd.
Mostly, though, it was pretty cool, with a good deal of inventive layering. A printed silk kimono, tossed over a trim yellow puffer coat, why not? All set, with leopard-printed trousers.
Also, Phung drew up a new pattern — rooster tail

Launchmetrics: Power Brands Stole the Spotlight at MFW

MILAN — Italian luxury powerhouses got the broadest attention during Milan Fashion Week when it came to media impact.
According to figures provided by Launchmetrics, the data research and insights company, Gucci ranked first among the list of the top five brands with the greatest media impact value — the impact a brand generates with its marketing activities across social media, print and online — during the city’s fashion week, which closed here on Feb. 24.
Versace, Prada, Fendi and Giorgio Armani filled in the remainder of the positions in the ranking.
Gucci and its set contributed to the overall $ 142.4 million media impact value across online and social media coverage. The brand’s creative director Alessandro Michele had guests enter the space through the backstage hair and makeup area and view the show through a circular installation re-creating the backstage-like dressing area in place of the runway.
Launchmetrics’ data was monitored from Feb. 18 to 24.
The data research company said the news of the coronavirus outbreak in Italy, which burst at the tail end of fashion week, also contributed to its overall media impact value, generating alone $ 9.2 million, or 6.5 percent of the total. As reported, the health crisis in the country pushed

Paco Rabanne RTW Fall 2020

She-popes, knights in shining chain mail fringe and Joan of Arc gone grunge. These were the magical creatures Julien Dossena conjured with his fall Paco Rabanne collection, a ceremony of powerful chic at the storied Conciergerie.
Steeped in historicism but with modern cool, it was celebration of radical craft, contrasting lightness and darkness, austerity and ornamentation, and taking inspiration (like several other collections this season), from religious vestments, but filtered through a very Paco lens.
Harnessing some impressive workmanship, Dossena mastered all the elements, from military-influenced glossy leather tailoring to ethereal chiffon volume dresses with a baptismal bent, embroidered in metallic thread “creating a halo around the girl,” he said poetically. He breathed new life into the house chain mail, showing total metal mesh looks, fringed and hooded, jingling as the models processed through the medieval hall where guillotines fell during the French Revolution. (Pick it all apart, though, and there was a lot to wear, including fringed chain mail shawls, capelets, hoods, crop tops that would go great with jeans, and ankle grazing, jingling skirts.)
Tailoring had a military vibe, with delicate floral embroideries bordering an officer coat, and pure white papal lace softening a pleasingly prim black pantsuit. Tapestry patterned draped

Off-White x Air Jordan IV Makes Paris Fashion Week Debut

Is there another Jordan Brand sneaker coming from Virgil Abloh?
Just weeks after one-upping his Off-White x Air Jordan V sneaker with a white colorway during NBA All-Star Weekend, a white and natural colorway of the Air Jordan IV debuted at the Off-White fall 2020 collection in Paris on Thursday.
Abloh presented his collection on the likes of Karlie Kloss, Gigi and Bella Hadid, and even their mother Yolanda Hadid, who returned to the runway for the show, but the real show stealer of the night is the sneaker that accompanied two looks in the middle of the show.
The designer shared an image of the sneaker on Instagram with open-toed heels and the caption “forever attempting to jump from the free throw line.”
The Tinker Hatfield-designed sneaker first launched in 1989. The version at the show resembles past Off-White x Jordan and Nike collaboration sneakers, featuring details like zip ties on the laces, “AIR” in quotation marks on the sole and “SHOELACES” on the laces.

Movado Cancels Davos Watch Conference Over Coronavirus

The coronavirus has caused another cancellation: Movado’s Swiss watch conference in Davos.
The watch group has pulled the plug on its event, which had been planned for March 14 to 18, owing to growing concern over the coronavirus in Europe.
“When the virus was largely contained within China, we felt we could keep the Davos summit but scale it back to become a conference for our European and Middle-Eastern customers,” Movado chairman and chief executive officer Efraim Grinberg said in a statement. “Now with cases growing in Europe, we feel that we must act to protect the health and safety of our customers and employees and therefore have canceled the summit.”
This year was set to be Movado’s third annual stand-alone conference — a format the group launched in 2018 as an alternative to Baselworld. Each year the company hosts a keynote speaker, which in the past has included Tony Blair and Amal Clooney. Despite the lavish set-up, Movado estimates that its stand-alone conference costs the firm about 20 percent of what it once spent on the Baselworld fair.
Movado’s announcement follows a similar release Thursday by Baselworld’s competitor Watches & Wonders, which is also canceled due to the coronavirus.
Baselworld, however, appears to still

Rick Owens RTW Fall 2020

You might have gathered from his galavanting across the California desert in a Moncler kitted-out Airstream trailer (and showing off his killer abs on Instagram), that Rick Owens, the once geeky kid from Porterville, has been on a bit of a nostalgic trip lately. He’s mined his Mixtec heritage and the rock gods of his youth for his runways, first Kiss designer Larry LeGaspi, and now Gary Numan, godfather of electronica and star of the sublimely Rick-titled 2016 doc, “Android in La La Land.”
In true form, the designer contacted Numan, humbly asking if he could remix some tunes for his show soundtrack. And he said “yes,” opening up the floodgates for Owens to explore his teendom in the dystopian Eighties, when Numan’s calculated artifice railed against “the banality of a decaying world” — not unlike the one we’re living in today, plagued by killer viruses and apathetic politicians.
“He’s always considered a C-list David Bowie…but I like that he was more obscure and more underground…he is repetitive, hypnotic, more alien and sleek than Bowie,” said Owens, likening his leather jumpsuits and expressionlessness to a cartoon of a German artist.
The result inspired one of Owens’ more accessible collections in recent memory, still

Moore From L.A.: At Paris Fashion Week, Air Kissing Is Out, Hand Sanitizer In

The LVMH Prize cocktail party is the latest cancellation at a Paris Fashion Week gripped with anxiety over coronavirus, where bottles of hand sanitizer, not perfume, were door gifts at the Paco Rabanne show held Thursday at the Conciergerie, the historic French Revolution-era site that’s certainly seen more head-spinning disasters.
The invisible menace hasn’t emptied the lunch crowd at L’Avenue, or cleared Caviar Kaspia (“We are fully booked every night with a huge waiting list,” reports chief executive officer Ramon Mac-Crohon.) And it didn’t keep Rachel Brosnahan, Demi Moore and Sigourney Weaver from the front row at Dior, Usher from Rick Owens or Carla Bruni and Tyga (what a pair) from coming to Off-White.
But it has created new rules of engagement, as the most social creatures on earth adjust to the “social distancing” being recommended by medical professionals to prevent the spread of the virus.
Air kissing is out, the arm squeeze is in, and every greeting (at fashion week, there are so, so many) is fraught with awkwardness as people gauge their coronavirus comfort level. “Wait, did you just come from Milan?” joked Anthony Vaccarello, kissing Vogue editor Mark Holgate on each cheek backstage after the Saint Laurent show. “No!” Holgate

Dries Van Noten RTW Fall 2020

“She’s a party girl.” So the soundtrack labeled her, lest you missed it from her brash, ebullient regalia.
One wonders if Dries Van Noten was at all concerned about a letdown after last season’s brilliant fashion-moment collaboration with Christian Lacroix. If so, you couldn’t tell by his fall runway. It exploded with a very different kind of exuberance as Van Noten made a 180-reversal from spring’s pretty wonderment toward a harder, tougher take on chic.
“It’s about nightlife…” Van Noten said backstage after his show. “Going out, enjoying life, having fun — [fun is] very important — and a party girl. [There’s] something mysterious, something dark, something romantic, but a dark romance.”
He started with pictures of the work of makeup guru Serge Lutens, and pondered, “How would a girl like this look now, how would she use makeup?” His answer: audaciously. This collection was all about color and pattern and overstatement. But most of all, it was about attitude, the attitude of a woman who not only dresses to be noticed, but lives to be noticed and to revel in the joy of showing off. To that end, she paints her hair with strokes of vibrant red or blue, and her eyes

LVMH Cancels Cocktail for Designer Prize Semifinalists

CHAMPAGNE ON ICE: The cocktail celebrating the 20 semifinalists for the LVMH Prize for Young Designers is the latest event to fall victim to the coronavirus scare.
Organizers of the gathering, to be held at the luxury conglomerate’s headquarters on Avenue Montaigne in Paris, said they have decided to cancel the event, originally scheduled for Feb. 27 at 6 p.m., though participants will still show their collections throughout the day on Thursday and Friday.
In a brief statement, LVMH gave no reason for the cancellation, although it comes on the same day that France recorded its first death from the coronavirus. Six Chinese brands have scrapped their planned events in the French capital because of the outbreak, and scores of editors from China and elsewhere are skipping the season.
Gigi Hadid recently joined the committee of experts for the seventh edition of the LVMH award and is the designated ambassador for the showroom, where the semifinalists show their creations to the panel made up of 68 industry figures. What shape her endorsement will now take could not immediately be learned.
The crowded annual event is usually an opportunity for emerging talents to rub shoulders with top LVMH executives, including chairman and chief executive officer

Sharapova Retires From Professional Tennis, Expects to Continue Endorsement Deals

Maria Sharapova, the 32-year-old tennis star, may be officially saying goodbye to professional tennis, but she plans to continue with her endorsement deals, according to her spokeswoman.
During her career, the Russian-born tennis player who moved to the U.S. as a young girl has won five Grand Slam titles. She has been dealing with a shoulder problem for years. Sharapova won Wimbledon as a 17-year-old, and later won two titles at the French Open and one each at the U.S. Open and the Australian Open. She served a 15-month ban after failing a doping test in 2016, and since her return, has only reached one major quarterfinal.
According to Sharapova’s spokeswoman, the former tennis player will continue to work with Nike, which she has been working with since she was 11 years old. She plans to continue her tennis collection, in addition to a shoe line called Maria Sharapova x La Cortez, which is now in its third iteration. The latest collection launched last fall and featured apparel for the first time. She’s also collaborated on products for Head Racquets, such as court bags.

Kenzo RTW Fall 2020

These are tough times for the travel industry. With the coronavirus outbreak severely curtailing air traffic, many people are opting to stay at home. Suddenly, even the trusty student ritual of backpacking across the planet is looking less alluring.
Not so for Felipe Oliveira Baptista, whose father was a pilot and who, as a result, has travel in his DNA. His debut coed collection for Kenzo was all about wanderlust — though the concept of shelter came hand-in-hand.
Cloaks, capes, cowls and caps shielded his models from the bright sunlight raising temperatures inside the plastic tubular tent set up in the garden of the National Institute for Deaf Children. The venue felt like an apt metaphor for conflicting urges: wanting to be out in the world, yet protected from its dangers.
The designer conceived the collection like a dialogue between himself and founder Kenzo Takada, who revolutionized French fashion in the early Seventies with his colorful, unrestrictive clothes and came to show his support.
Baptista channeled that spirit with flowing capes printed with collages of tiger paintings by Portuguese artist Júlio Pomar, or prints drawn from the Kenzo archives: roses or horses painted into soft, camouflage-like motifs. An army green, full-body cocoon, shaped with

Rachel Comey Pops Up in Paris

New York designer Rachel Comey has opened a monthlong pop-up shop at 123 Rue de Turenne in the Marais.
The two-floor space features her showroom upstairs, and a store downstairs selling her spring collection, including her cult favorite Drill jumpsuits, Fetes sheer tulle wrap skirts, double-breasted boxy blazers, and glossy leather clogs.
This marks the third store for the designer after New York and Los Angeles (she also wholesales to Nordstrom, Saks and several multilabel boutiques in the U.S. and internationally, but no department stores in Paris — yet).
Why Paris, why now? “We love retail and having that direct relationship to our customers,” said Comey. “I was thinking where else to open a store, and nothing had clicked yet…But then we always come to Paris for market, four times a year, and it was an organic decision to do our showroom as a pop-up combo, so even our own accounts could walk through and see the whole collection and space.”
The pop-up is open until March 18, and Comey is hoping to connect more to the Parisian community while she’s here. As a start, she is featuring in the shop the work of Berlin-based Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili, an artist represented by the gallery just

Lela Orr Wins FGI of Dallas Rising Star Award

Fashion Group International of Dallas anointed Lela Orr as an emerging fashion talent on Tuesday evening during its annual Rising Star Awards, which were held at the Statler Hotel.
“I’m just kind of shocked,” said Orr, a Dallas native who operates her business there. “Winning in your hometown means something special.”
Orr got national exposure in the U.S. last spring during her turn on “Project Runway,” where she placed eighth. The publicity enabled her to expand beyond custom clothing into producing a small collection called Ferrah, she said.
Focused on sustainability, Ferrah offers upscale contemporary sportswear fabricated of natural materials and dyes.
“We’ve quadruped our growth as of last year, and we’re opening a storefront on Earth Day,” Orr said. “It’s kind of a test — our first storefront.” Called Sept: Sustainable Designer Collective, the shop at Trinity Groves will present clothing and accessories from a rotating cast of eco-conscious designers, including fellow “Project Runway” alum Venny Etienne and contestant Brittany Allen.
“The goal is to have seven sustainable designers hanging or displaying at a time,” Orr explained.

Thebe Magugu RTW Fall 2020

For his first presentation at Paris Fashion Week, South African designer Thebe Magugu created an immersive experience. Guests entered a dilapidated screening room in the basement of the Palais de Tokyo to discover mannequins wearing African masks sitting on chairs facing a screen projecting a short film.
All around the room were oversize images shot by Kristin-Lee Moolman, featuring items from the fall collection against the backdrop of the Ipopeng township in the mining town of Kimberley, where Magugu was raised. The name of the suburb translates as “beautify yourself” in Setswana.
Committed to manufacturing in Africa, the winner of the LVMH Prize for Young Designers produced just 10 looks for his “Anthro 1” fall line as he works to upskill his suppliers.
There were variations on shirtdresses — some with sheer lace insets at the elbow — and feminine pantsuits. A lilac logo trenchcoat came in a check print inspired by the tablecloth in his grandmother’s kitchen, while a shirt and cropped pants featured a stripe motif made by photocopying strips of denim.
Leather bags were handcrafted in Johannesburg and featured the brand’s new logo designed by Commission Studio in London. An emblem of sisterhood, it shows the silhouettes of two seated women

Stefano Rosso to Open D-Cave Fashion and Gaming Lifestyle Pop-up

Diesel North American chief executive officer Stefano Rosso is a gamer. He grew up playing Atari but, in his words, life took over, and he put games on the back burner to start a career in fashion.
But on Thursday, Rosso and his partner Furio Garibaldi will launch D-Cave, a lifestyle gaming pop-up shop that bridges the gaming, fashion and music worlds.
“I’ve always been a player but never professionally. Recently, I was able to rediscover how much this environment has been growing,” he said. “It’s time to bring all of the elements of the lifestyle of gaming under one roof. This is almost a dream come true for people like me who have been playing since they were kids.”
D-Cave will be open at 415 Broadway through March 1, and will offer gaming and music programming over the three days. The two-floor pop-up will host a marketplace and music on the first level and dedicate the second floor to gaming events such as a FIFA gaming tournament with the New York City Football Club and New York RedBull FIFA players, Fortnite with Nate Hill of FaZe Clan and DrLupo, and an appearance from competitive fighting game player Justin Wong.

Guy Laroche RTW Fall 2020

For fall, Richard René tried his hand at upcycling. Scouring the Internet, he turned up a dozen Guy Laroche vintage pieces, and took a stab at it — or them. 
René dipped a printed blue silk dress from the late Eighties in black ink, turning it into a blouse and paired it with high-waisted wool trousers, completing the look with a repurposed wool trenchcoat — from the Seventies this time — and adding a layer of patent leather fish scales. It looked good and felt modern. 
Another dress, equally suitable for the era of office secretaries with hair-sprayed hairdos, was updated as a chic evening gown, the waist drawn in and the skirt stretched down, with fat strips of patent leather to add length. 
He also found bolts of ivory, crepe fabric from the Seventies which he worked into new designs — the material clung to the body like a “Star Trek” suit, looking sleek and sensual as a jumpsuit, or a hip-hugging dress with prominent shoulders, but a bit awkward as a pleated skirt-blouse combo. 
With no production — there hasn’t been in three years — and a limited budget, René’s experiment in upcycling has turned up a compelling proposition for a brand

Rhone Launching Women’s Capsule Collection

After five years selling sophisticated activewear to men, Rhone is taking the plunge into women’s.
But the move should not be viewed as a full-on entry into the women’s arena, its founders stressed. Rather, it’s intended to honor the contributions of the women who work for the company and is being launched during Women’s History Month.
The capsule collection will be offered for sale only on the company’s web site beginning March 2. It will include tanks, hoodies, leggings and joggers created from Italian fabrics treated with the company’s GoldFusion technology, a proprietary process that infuses gold particles into the highest-performing fabrics and is soft, fast-drying, long-lasting and odor neutral. In addition, the leggings are made from sustainable fabrics created from reclaimed and recycled fishing nets removed from the world’s oceans.
The collection will retail for $ 64 to $ 138.
Nate Checketts, cofounder, said, “Let me be clear, we are not launching women’s wear. This is an extremely tight, limited capsule collection that really celebrates the women in our lives who have helped propel this brand forward.” Even so, he said he expects the collection to sell out quickly.
Checketts didn’t completely rule out eventually expanding Rhone into women’s wear, but said that if and when

Frances Valentine Opens Dallas Pop-up

HEADING TO DALLAS: Frances Valentine intends to open a pop-up store in Dallas by year-end, and chief executive officer Elyce Arons began outreach on Monday with lunch for 20 women at Grange Hall, followed by a private home trunk show on Tuesday.
Guests included Michelle Nussbaumer, Cindy Schwartz, Capera Ryan and Chandra North Blaylock.
“We’re still small and haven’t been around very long, so we don’t have a lot of brand awareness,” explained Arons, who launched the label in 2015 with the late Kate Spade and her husband Andy, and Paola Venturi.
Yet Dallas is one of the brand’s “major” e-commerce markets and has been on her radar for a while, she noted.
“Last summer we opened a pop-up store in Sag Harbor, which we still have and are keeping indefinitely, and we had so many people come into the store and say, ‘You’ve got to be in Dallas,’” Arons explained.
It’s no secret that Dallas women are fond of bright colors and feminine style, which are hallmarks of Frances Valentine. Bestsellers at the trunk show were $ 695 linen caftans vividly embroidered with peacocks and Mexican-inspired motifs.
Arons was scouting for a space in Dallas’ hottest upscale retail spots –– Highland Park Village, NorthPark Center, the

Anrealage RTW Fall 2020

Kunihiko Morinaga nurtured his inner child for fall, taking wooden bricks as his building blocks and creating boxy panels of fabric that snapped together interchangeably to form a range of outsized, exaggerated mix-and-match silhouettes.
While the underlying fabrics and clothes referenced — a trenchcoat, chunky knitwear, a padded bomber jacket and indigo denim — were mostly familiar, the direction in which he took these staple wardrobe items was far from it.
Squares, rectangles, semi-circles and triangles of fabric were fixed together in what the designer described backstage as a comment on diversity and sustainability, with each part designed to be combined in myriad ways — the simplest combinations consisting of around five panels, the most complex up to nine.
For fashion’s indecisive — it’s not often you can choose to wear a trenchcoat, tweed, a puffer skirt and pink fake fur all at once — the lineup offered quirky appeal. But it also had less of the poetic intensity of Morinaga’s last two collections.

Milan’s Salone del Mobile Postponed to June

MILAN — International furniture and interior design trade show Salone del Mobile has postponed its upcoming 59th edition slated to run April 21 to 26 at Milan’s Rho-Fiera venue due to the coronavirus outbreak in Italy.
The trade show will take place June 16 to 21.
The Salone del Mobile and the related Design Week, animated by a wide range of events organized across the city, is the most important global event taking place in Milan, which is considered the international capital of design.
Following the decision taken by the trade show’s organizers on Tuesday, the Salone del Mobile will overlap with the spring/summer edition of Florence-based trade show Pitti Uomo, running June 16 to 19, and with Milan Men’s Fashion Week, kicking off on June 20.
As reported, Bologna-based trade show Cosmoprof has also been postponed and will now take place June 11 to 15, while the new dates of Milanese eyewear fair Mido has yet to be released but the fair is expected to be held in late May or early June.

“It was hard to decide what to do in such a peculiar moment for Milan, but we have decided to postpone [the Salone del Mobile] by a couple of months,” said Milan’s

Andbox Unveils ‘Call of Duty’ Capsule Collection

Andbox is highlighting its Call of Duty star e-game player Thomas “ZooMaa” Paparatto of the New York Subliners with a new collection inspired by him.
The three-piece capsule launching on Andbox.com on Feb. 27 merges gaming with soccer, which Paparatto grew up playing, and is comprised of a T-shirt, navy sweatshirt with gray hood, and a track suit designed by Paparatto with Collette Gangemi, who leads the Andbox in-house merchandise and apparel design team, and Andbox senior designer Mary Clark.
Clark said in a video previewing the collection that they looked to horses, Paparatto’s logo, as the central motif for the collection, and landed on a design of a mechanical horse for the T-shirt. The back of the T-shirt features the phrase “Ever Upward,” which will appear in upcoming Andbox collections. “Tommy’s personality is bold and effervescent so we wanted to capture that,” said Clark. The collection ranges in price from $ 36 to $ 120.
“I’ve always wanted to do my own apparel line. Obviously I was with FaZe for a few years, and we were in talks about doing it, but we just never got around to doing it,” said Paparatto in the video. He took to Andbox because of the design and

Dior RTW Fall 2020

“CONSENT,” flashed three big neon signs suspended from the ceiling, one each in yellow, red and green. They blinked on and off inside the tent installed at the Tuileries Garden for Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior show. Additional signs around the perimeter proclaimed, “Patriarchy = CO2,” “Patriarchy = Repression,” and “We Are All Clitoridian Women.”
The timing of this particular installation was uncanny, the day after Harvey Weinstein got his comeuppance in court, convicted of rape and a criminal sexual act. The set was the work of the feminist art collective Claire Fontaine (the duo of Fulvia Carnevale and James Thornhill). The name of the show, “I Say I,” is translated from “lo dico io” an exhibit of Italian women artists opening next month at Rome’s National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, and sponsored by Dior. The exhibit takes its name from a piece by the Italian art critic and feminist writer Carla Lonzi. (This show drew on ample material; the press notes had footnotes.)
Chiuri’s feminist dedication is admirable, as is the free rein she gives to the artists she enlists for her sets. But this messaging crossed over from pro-women activism to an unsubtle subtext of “men suck.” There was

In Wake of Rape, Sex-Trafficking Allegations, Dillard’s Drops Peter Nygård Collection

In the response to multiple allegations of rape, sexual assault and sex trafficking against Peter Nygård, Dillard’s will no longer carry his moderate sportswear label.
The retailer said in a statement Tuesday: “In light of the serious allegations concerning Peter Nygård, which are in direct opposition to our core values, Dillard’s has refused current deliveries, canceled all existing orders and suspended all future purchases from Nygård.”
A Dillard’s spokeswoman did not respond to a query asking what will become of the existing Nygård products that are currently being sold by the retailer online and in stores.
Earlier in the day on Tuesday, investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New York Police Department raided Nygård’s New York offices at 1435 Broadway, as first reported by the New York Post. Jim Margolin, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan, confirmed the seizure.
Nygard, in turn, announced through a spokesman that he is stepping down as chairman of the Nygard Companies and will divest his ownership interest.
A spokesman for Nygård issued the following statement Tuesday: “As a direct result and in furtherance of the conspiracy planned by billionaire Louis Bacon, federal agents have executed a search and seizure on Nygård offices in

Mugsy Jeans Taps Chicago Cub Ian Happ as Ambassador

Mugsy Jeans, a Chicago-based men’s denim brand, has tapped Ian Happ, a second baseman and outfielder for the Chicago Cubs, to be an ambassador for the brand.
Happ will appear in the brand’s spring campaign, launching in April, and will also make appearances at the newly opened Mugsy store on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. The relationship between the two began because the athlete was a fan of the brand, the company said.
“We are thrilled to partner with Ian Happ, as athletes have always been a sweet spot for the brand because of the fit and flexibility of our fabrics,” said Leo Tropeano, founder of Mugsy Jeans. “We’re excited to expand on our athlete following with a rising star on our hometown team.”
“Working with Mugsy was a no-brainer for me,” says Happ. “The relationship has been organic from the beginning. I love where the brand is headed and the combination of style and comfort fits my life perfectly.”
The 25-year-old Happ has played for the Cubs for the past three years, although he spent the majority of the 2019 season in Triple A.
Mugsy was created as a comfortable alternative to tight or baggy jeans and offers stretch and flexibility in its fits. In

Coperni RTW Fall 2020

For the past six months, Coperni’s Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant have had the World Wide Web on their minds. With good reason: they have been working on the relaunch of their web site, which went live a few hours after the show.
The collection, which the pair designed around this launch and “as an homage to the web,” they said, traced a digital native following the footsteps of Sir Timothy Berners-Lee — the computer scientist who invented the global information system in the late Eighties — in her exploration of this ever-changing frontier.
The digital realm was celebrated everywhere: in the animated GIF invitation that featured a snippet of HTML code fading away to reveal the address; in the venue, the French start-up incubator Station F, and in the clothes themselves.
There was nothing virtual about this smart lineup, which kept to the minimal yet uber-cool vibe they cultivate. A T-shirt that said “Enter the Web” featured part of the brand’s web site code printed on the inside. Woven elements nodded to the idea of an interconnected web. Elsewhere, the network’s immaterial nature was alluded to in transparent textures or in skirts and tops that felt like they were mirroring each other,

Fashion Ambitionist’s Marissa Grossman Is Launching a Fashion Brand

Marissa Grossman, née Fuchs, of last year’s viral proposal craze, is gearing up for her next venture: a fashion brand of her very own.
The influencer, who left her role as director of brand partnerships at Goop in November, revealed the news today just a few months after she experienced a short window of Internet fame when her elaborate, branded scavenger hunt-themed marriage proposal-turned-wedding went viral via her extensive documentation on Instagram.
Many were captivated by her more than 300 Instagram Stories showing each stage of the “experience,” complete with brand tags and product mentions, but media outlets speculated that the scavenger hunt was a little more than an elaborate sponsored content stunt. A pitch deck made by Grossman’s now-husband, Gabriel Grossman, was leaked online and seemed to confirm such speculation. As did the Grossmans holding a second wedding for friends and family.
After all the publicity, Grossman has revealed she’s officially branching out on her own. On Tuesday, she revealed to her 172,000 Instagram followers the launch of a new business called Shop Ambitionist as an extension of her Instagram account and blog, which focuses on shopping, fashion and lifestyle.

Tkees Opens Miami Store, More in Works

With its flip-flops already on feet all over Miami, Tkees chose the endless-summer city to roll out retail. The decade-old, Brazilian brand opened a 700-square-foot boutique in the Miami Design District on Feb. 22; locations in New York and Los Angeles are slated by year’s end. In addition to women’s and children’s footwear and women’s apparel, which launched in 2019, the all-shoppable concept extends to husband-and-wife founders Carly and Jesse Burnett’s selection of home decor and art.
“We wanted the store to be more than a white box. We wanted it to take you somewhere,” said Jesse of expanding into brick-and-mortar after building a wholesale business that currently hovers around 600 accounts. “Even saying the word retail feels dangerous now, but retail’s not dead — boring retail is dead.”
Rather than see it as risky, he said well-rounded business models need to embrace all channels. Tkees fared well in the e-commerce transition, with digital multibrand stores and department stores’ online divisions accounting for 60 percent of its wholesale business. Miami ranks in its top three markets for e-commerce, and Tkees’s web site has only been a boon for wholesale partners.

Koché RTW Fall 2020

Christelle Kocher’s fall collection was the first since her Koché label joined forces with Renzo Rosso’s fashion group OTB, and it showed.
Set in a cavernous hall at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, the coed display had a nocturnal ambience, accentuated by the dingy lighting generated by floor projectors. It opened with one of her signature polo dresses, only done in black leather with dramatic leg-of-mutton sleeves.
Leveraging OTB’s expertise in denim through its flagship brand Diesel, Kocher had a field day with the material, sending out Canadian tuxedos galore. A patchwork shirt was paired with a skirt with a sweeping train, while those puffy sleeves were worked into a tight-fitting blouse tucked into a low-crotched pair of baggy jeans.
“I wanted it to be an evolution because this new partnership we have with Renzo is like a new beginning for the brand, with the opportunity to use high-quality manufacturers,” she said backstage. “It’s about how I can bring my personal touch to it through the cuts and embellishment.”
While a mosaic-style denim pant and skirt looked a little bulky, Kocher hit her stride with embroidered and embellished jeans, paired with a bodysuit studded with Swarovski crystals and topped with heaps of pearls and

Felipe Oliveira Baptista Talks Shedding New Light on the Kenzo Legacy

PARIS — It’s a new day at Kenzo. When Felipe Oliveira Baptista shows his debut collection for the French fashion house today, the change will be apparent before the first look hits the runway.
Under former creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the shows often took the form of artistic performances staged after dark. Baptista, by contrast, hopes to take full advantage of the daylight with his display, to be held at 10:30 a.m. in a transparent tent in the garden of the National Institute for Deaf Children.
“We went from night into day,” the designer told WWD in a preview at the Kenzo headquarters on Rue Vivienne. “Everybody’s going to be front row and everyone’s going to be looking at the clothes really, really, really close by.”
The structure is reusable. “It can be packed away like a tent and it can be blown up again next season, and nature will take care of the rest of the decoration. And I think that’s quite sustainable and it’s an interesting way of thinking of doing things in a different way,” Baptista noted.
“It even can be divided into parts, which means we can do a pop-up with part of this structure somewhere and

Philipp Plein Issues Statement on Kobe Bryant Tribute in Fall Show

The Internet was very upset with Philipp Plein over the weekend.
The designer presented his fall collection in Milan last weekend and paid tribute to Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, with purple and gold-encrusted hoodies and jerseys bearing the number 24, Bryant’s second jersey number and Plein’s name in the Los Angeles Lakers font. The extravagant show also had gold Philipp Plein-branded helicopters, planes and yacht on set, with the helicopter drawing the ire of many who were outraged at the thoughtlessness and the capsule collection.
The designer issued a statement on Monday saying, “The catwalk set-up was already planned and designed in November 2019, way before this tragic accident occurred, this is the reason why they were gilded helicopters on the runway. I would have clearly removed them if possible, but it was too late to replace them.”
Many took to social media to express their outrage, claiming that Plein was capitalizing on the tragic accident that claimed the lives of the Bryants and seven of their friends and teammates. The show also commenced days before the tribute memorial for the Bryants.
Regarding the tribute capsule, Plein said he decided to “celebrate Kobe Bryant’s legacy” with the capsule collection “and made clear

Annakiki RTW Fall 2020

With a theme as current as the danger of fake news, the sartorial possibilities were endless. Anna Yang chose to address the issue in little touches, bringing a dystopian edge to her characteristically bright silhouettes. A pink taffeta minidress with balloon sleeves looked sweet enough, until you spotted the metal screws coming out of each side of the model’s head. Some of the silhouettes — all done in bright colors and with Eighties shoulders — were finished off with silver helmets covering half of the model’s head — contraptions destined to “protect the brain,” according to the press release.
Standout looks were a rainbow striped suit jacket — which was startlingly vivid, like when you turn up the brightness on your phone screen by mistake — and a printed oversize coat and leggings combo. From afar, the print looked quaintly flowered; up close, it turned out to be an aggregation of icons from the most popular phone applications.

Sweden’s Virtual Design Museum Encourages Visitors to Get Outdoors and Try Before They Buy Products

DESIGNED TO LAST: Urban nomads, wear-testing, experiential, try-to-buy, upcycling — the Swedish Design Museum’s new “To Go” exhibit is geared for everyday adventurers. But it also is a reminder of the importance of sustainability. Billed as the first takeout design exhibit, the show is not held in a gallery or a museum but in four territories of Sweden. Participants book online reservations for backpacks to use for “To Go,” which officially starts in March. Visitors can then use the backpacks for a week at no charge to explore four different areas of the country — South, West, North and East, representing Malmö, Gothenburg, Umeå and Stockholm. The backpacks are from the Swedish brand Sandqvist, and are filled with Swedish-made design essentials selected by curators. Upon return, the backpacks are cleaned and put back in rotation for the next user.
Opened in 2017, the museum is a virtual one that was started by Visit Sweden, a marketing company that promotes Sweden as a destination and as a brand. Through the design program, commissioned by the Swedish government, Visit Sweden collaborated with Architects Sweden, ASFB-Association of Swedish Fashion Brands, the Swedish Federation of Wood and Furniture and Svensk Form, aim to highlight Sweden’s

Coronavirus Impact: How the Epidemic Has Impacted the Fashion Industry

As the coronavirus continues to spread, so too has its impact on the industry.
The world has been on edge since news of the virus’ outbreak began in late January in Wuhan City in the Hubei Province of China. The virus has quickly spread globally, with cases popping up in the U.S., the U.K., Italy, Japan, Egypt and Iran, as well as in about 30 other nations, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The coronavirus is increasingly having a negative impact on the fashion industry specifically, especially the fall 2020 fashion month season. Reports of the coronavirus hitting Italy coincided with the end of Milan Fashion Week, leading to the cancellation of a number of runway shows and events.
Here, WWD breaks down the ways that the epidemic — which has amassed a total of 77,150 cases and 2,592 deaths worldwide as of Feb. 24, according to The Washington Post — has impacted the fashion industry.

Fila RTW Fall 2020

There was a slick, Space Age feel to this collection, the first, full fall effort under creative directors Antonino Ingrasciotta and Josef Graesel. The duo took inspiration from cold-weather heroes, including the Italian mountaineer Reinhold Messner, and spun climbing, skiing and sports clothing into pieces for everyday life. Standout looks included slim puffers and sweaters adorned with abstract mountain silhouettes in white, blue or gray. Models wore elegant white puffer shawls-come-dresses, or all-black jackets more suited to urban terrain. The presentation was fun, with scarves, sneakers and gloves suspended inside huge blocks of real ice, and a soundtrack meant to echo climbers’ boots crackling on the frozen snow.
WWD Critique: Ingrasciotta and Graesel are having fun plundering the Fila archives and viewing this sports brand through the lens of fashion and streetwear. They are turning Fila into a thoughtful, polished collection that just happens to be inspired by outdoor sports.

Fashion Group International Partners With Greenwich Entertainment

EXPANDING REACH: Fashion Group International has linked up with Greenwich Entertainment, the North American distributors of the documentary “The Times of Bill Cunningham.”
FGI president and chief executive officer Maryanne Grisz is expected to reveal the partnership news tonight at a private screening in New York City. Tonight’s event at the Angelika Film Center is geared for FGI members and its board of directors. Grisz said in a statement issued Monday, “The synergistic relationship between film and fashion has never been stronger, particularly as we look to film for exciting new ways to present fashion and innovative messaging to the world.”
After watching the 74-minute film, which opened last month, tonight’s attendees can listen to a one-on-one conversation between the flick’s coproducer and director Mark Bozek and Donna Karan. The pair will speak of some of their memories of Cunningham. The documentary is anchored in a 1994 interview that Bozek conducted with The New York Times street photographer. What was supposed to be a 10-minute conversation lasted for a few hours. Cunningham died in 2016 at the age of 87.
The film is narrated by actress Sarah Jessica Parker. In the documentary, Cunningham recounts his days of working as a milliner in France

Pope plays an aspiring screenwriter navigating Tinseltown during its Golden Age in the Forties alongside a group of actors, filmmakers — and sex workers.

Blazers with inlaid vests were matched with slightly flared pants and classic spencers inspired the silhouettes of cropped bombers embellished with embroideries and matched with flounced dresses splashed with graphic floral patterns.

Perhaps his American contemporaries were hanging out at the mall. But when he was a teenager, Idris Balogun, the founder of New York-based label Winnie, took to “the Row” — Saville Row — in London. Landing his first apprenticeship at age 15, Balogun, who grew up in a family of Nigerian immigrants, said he feels lucky to have learned the tricks of the trade at an early age — tailoring and pattern-cutting.
“The guys on Savile Row kind of think of themselves as a separate entity from fashion,” he explained, noting they stuck to the classics, avoiding the fashion industry’s seasonal churn. He himself felt the pull and eventually moved to the design studios of Burberry and Tom Ford.
“I kind of found beauty in that, in the seasonal operation, because there’s always newness,” he said. He got himself into trouble, at times, suggesting fresh ideas.
“Like, ‘Well, why do we have this line here, instead of putting it here?’ or ‘How come our lapel can’t be a bit slimmer?’ But all houses have rules and you kind of have to kind of stick to those rules when you’re a cutter,” he said.

Bode Makes Moves to Position Brand for Growth

Bode is making some significant changes in its business to support the brand’s growth. Last week, the company let go of four employees and Jack Miner, who had overseen operations and finance, exited to explore more creative opportunities, according to Bode founder and designer Emily Bode.
She said the company will be hiring more seasoned production and management staff with expertise in operations as well as domestic and international manufacturing. Bringing a chief executive officer on board is also in the cards. Bode said most of the staff up until this point had been recent college graduates, but the plan is to add people with five-plus years of experience.
The men’s designer brand created by Emily Bode three-and-a-half years ago has quickly become a darling of the fashion industry with its heritage-inspired collection that uses heirloom fabrics and vintage manufacturing techniques.

The exclusive collection will feature the Truman Presidential Seal and will include red, blue and navy neckties, a red or blue double-sided bowties, a navy bowtie and a multicolored pocket square. Called the Presidential Collection, all items are 100 percent silk and manufactured in the U.S.
The Truman Presidential Seal was established in 1945 when then-President Harry S. Truman issued an executive order that officially defined the Presidential Coat of Arms and Seal for the first time. Eventually, an eagle’s head, which originally faced right toward a bundle of 13 arrows held in its talons, was turned to face left toward an olive branch to symbolize peace.
The products will range in price from $ 55 to $ 89.50 and can be purchased online through the association’s web site or the White House History Shop and White House Visitor Center in Washington, D.C.
The organization said it will continue to partner with Brooks Brothers on additional products in the future.
A Brooks Brothers spokesperson said the Historical Association approached the company about the partnership because it “recognized

Kenneth Ize RTW Fall 2020

It’s not often that a debut show at Paris Fashion Week can boast Naomi Campbell on the runway. The British model, wearing a colorful-striped belted trenchcoat, closed Kenneth Ize’s runway display on the opening day of the French shows, in a sign of the growing importance of African fashion on the international stage.
“She made this happen, to be fair. She’s part of the journey since Day One in my career,” said the Nigerian designer, a finalist for last year’s LVMH Prize for Young Designers.
She wasn’t the only heavy hitter on hand. Model-turned-designer Liya Kebede applauded from the front row as a diverse cast paraded in Ize’s colorful coed creations, in a blend of patterned knits, Austrian lace and his signature striped aso oke cloth with fringed hems.
To be sure, Ize’s designs are not for shrinking violets. A fearless colorist, he loves piling on the striped motifs, layering up to three different patterns on a single look. And why wouldn’t you, when the handwoven fabrics — an emerald shirt and pants with a fringed belt in particular — seemed to positively shimmer with color.
But what was truly striking was the way he blended traditional and modern silhouettes. Alton Mason’s checked tunic

Meet the New Faces of Plus-Size Modeling

PARIS — Before stepping up on the Fendi catwalk on Thursday, Paloma Elsesser was hardly a unknown figure: the American model features regularly in Glossier campaigns and is a face of Fenty Beauty.
But walking for an LVMH-owned luxury house is another thing. While most Millennial-savvy, digital native brands have embraced diversity from their very inception, getting better representation of all body sizes is a relatively new phenomenon for the higher spheres of fashion — especially the European ones.
“Plus-size models started in the U.S. quite a while ago,” said Nathalie Cros-Coitton, chief executive officer of Women Management modeling agency and founder of its new Curve W360 division dedicated to curvier body types. “Maybe because the American population is a better reflection of that particular market. But what we’ve seen recently with social media and the personal expression it allows is that brands have finally realized there is a wholly different audience out there.”
While models like Ashley Graham and Tess Holliday have truly made their mark and become ambassadors for body diversity within the industry, the second wave of body positivity is brought on by a flurry of new faces that are scouted on social media, where some of them already have

Les Copains RTW Fall 2020

Les Copains is springing to life again under its new owners, Super Srl, controlled by the Bologna-based Zambelli family, which purchased the  brand last September. For this first season under new ownership, the team worked up wardrobe staples that included soft Breton sweaters; lightweight, nubby cashmere knits and lean, pleated skirts with a Seventies vibe. A featherweight peacoat in the brand’s signature navy blue rubbed shoulders with a dusty rose chubby that looked like fur but was made from mohair yarn. There was lots of tailored clothing, too, in traditional fabrics.
WWD Critique: The Zambelli family clearly knows what it’s doing, focusing on luxe staples at contemporary prices. This collection didn’t push any style boundaries, but it was modern, beautiful and wearable.

Miuccia and Raf: Fashion’s New Power Couple

MILAN — Fashion solo acts are yielding to co-creation.
In one of the biggest meetings of design muscle in history, Miuccia Prada has invited Raf Simons to become co-creative director of the Prada brand. The first codesigned collection is to be unveiled on the runway for spring 2021 during Milan Fashion Week in September.
While there is bound to be huge anticipation given Prada’s stature in the luxury world and Simons’ cult-like following with the streetwear crowd, this is no onetime drop. Asked about the length of the employment contract with Simons, who starts on April 2, Prada said, “In theory, it’s forever.”
Prada organized a press conference Sunday to reveal the partnership — which, as reported in WWD in late January, had been rumored for months — with the two designers seated on green velvet armchairs clutching microphones: he in a roomy sky-blue coat and gleaming white boots; she in a navy sweater, pants and a vintage diamond necklace.
Investors are likely to applaud the move, as equity analysts have been lamenting a dearth of newness at the Italian firm, which has been trailing its luxury rivals in recent years.
And while Prada brushed off a suggestion that she might be retiring soon, the money

How to Watch Giorgio Armani’s Fall 2020 Show Live

Giorgio Armani said late Saturday evening that his signature brand’s women’s fall show will be held behind closed doors, “given the recent developments of the coronavirus in Italy.”
“The show will be filmed in an empty theater, without press and buyers” and live-streamed at 4 p.m. CET/10 a.m. EST on Feb. 23, the company said in a brief note.
The designer was meant to hold two shows, at 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. CET, in his Via Bergognone headquarters, closing Milan Fashion Week, which kicked off on Feb. 19. “The decision was made to avoid exposing guests to any dangers to their health,” said the company. Armani held his Emporio Armani fall show on Friday.

Giorgio Armani RTW Fall 2020

Milan Fashion Week came to an end behind closed doors on Sunday, with Giorgio Armani showing his collection without an audience after a spike in cases of the coronavirus over the weekend sent shock waves through Italy, closing some museums and schools and forcing event cancellations — but not keeping people from shopping on Via Montenapoleone, it should be said, some wearing masks.
The Armani show went on online — and during the live-stream, models could be seen walking around a reflecting pool with flowers and hanging vines conjuring a ghostly nocturnal garden. On the runway, romance ruled with softened military silhouettes, flashes of pink, loads of velvet and camouflage floral patterns.
The designer rendered maxi coats in soft black or blue velvet and reinterpreted camo as an abstract pink and gray or pink and blue petal pattern on silk maxi skirts and trousers, and at least one matched set resembling a kind of femme paratrooper uniform. On the subject of softness, a hot pink, zip-front “fur” jacket over a pale gray balloon skirt looked luxe for faux, and pink satin pants peeking out from an exquisite black velvet robe coat made for a fun touch.
As always, jackets were hero pieces, and

EXCLUSIVE: Chloé Taps Three Women Artists for Show Collaboration

PARIS — Natacha Ramsay-Levi believes in the power of three: The designer has tapped a trio of female creatives to collaborate on her fall 2020 Chloé show, to be held in Paris on Feb. 27.
New York-based artist Rita Ackermann has authorized several of her paintings to be reproduced on clothes and accessories, and the soundtrack will feature Marianne Faithfull reading poems. Meanwhile, the set will include five of Marion Verboom’s totem-like sculptures.
After three years at the helm of the French fashion house, Ramsay-Levi said the time felt right to open up her creative process to other voices, with the intention of embracing a multifaceted vision of womanhood.
“I’m not there to dictate what femininity stands for today. I don’t like the idea of things being fixed. I prefer the idea of perpetual movement, and I think that chimes with the spirit of Chloé as well: staying open to infinite possibilities and embracing the unknown,” she told WWD.
Accordingly, the three artists were chosen for their capacity to reinvent themselves, starting with Faithfull, who has released more than 20 albums over a career spanning 55 years.
“She has always been at the cutting edge. She did not remain the Marianne from the Sixties that everybody

Peter Nygård and Louis Bacon Feud Ensues Following Blistering New York Times Report

THE BATTLE INTENSIFIES: Hedge fund billionaire Louis Bacon wasted no time in responding to Sunday’s searing front-page article in The New York Times, “Ultra Wealthy Neighbors, A Feud and a Rape Case.” And his rival Peter Nygard also weighed in on the matter late Sunday via a spokesman.
The lengthy investigative article chronicled the 15-year litigious and costly battle between Bacon, 63, and Nygård, 78, founder of the moderate-priced sportswear label Nygård. The billionaires have neighboring waterfront properties in the Bahamas’ affluent Lyford Cay. The “epic battle” between the two adversaries has reportedly led to “tens of millions” and the filing of 25 lawsuits in five jurisdictions.
Earlier this month 10 women, whose names have not been revealed, filed a lawsuit against Nygård alleging rape, sex trafficking and sexual assault. Some of the victims, including a few who were minors at the time, alleged they were plied with alcohol, and in some case pills by Nygård, before being raped or sodomized at “pamper” parties held at Nygård’s Mayan-inspired estate in the Bahamas. Some of the alleged victims claimed they were enticed by the prospect of modeling contracts.
Some of the New York attorneys representing those “Jane Does” claimed earlier this week that “dozens” of

Laura Biagiotti RTW Fall 2020

Staged behind closed doors due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Laura Biagiotti fall collection was set against a lush garden in tune with clothes inspired by an imaginative trip to the countryside.
Nodding to nature and to the company’s sustainable efforts, the opening look set the tone for the entire lineup: A grass-green body-hugging knit dress with a midi skirt was crafted from regenerated cashmere and accessorized with a long scarf bearing the phrase “Be Green.” Roomy argyle knitted frocks worn under maxi cardigans in the same pattern and khaki pants tucked into mid-calf booties worn with shirts featuring tapestry-inspired floral motifs exuded a country chic attitude.
Lavinia Biagiotti played with contrasting elements for cargo pants crafted from traditional men’s wear fabrics softened by cozy knitwear with plunging V-necks and paired with slouchy overcoats.
WWD Critique: As she carries forward the company she inherited from her mother, Biagiotti reinvents the house codes with laid-back elegance and a modern twist.

EXCLUSIVE: Dior Partners With Louvre to Restore Tuileries Garden

GARDEN PARTY: After building a lush garden set for its last women’s runway show, Dior is bringing its green fingers to the Musée du Louvre. The French fashion house has signed a five-year partnership with the world-famous museum to help restore the Jardin des Tuileries, one of the largest and oldest public gardens in Paris.
Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of women’s wear, will show her fall ready-to-wear collection on Feb. 25 in a vast temporary structure built over the octagonal fountain near the park’s entrance on Place de la Concorde. The location is distinct from the Espace Éphémère des Tuileries, which traditionally hosts fashion shows and other events.
Dior will finance several major projects between 2020 and 2024, starting with the reopening of the wooded area to the northeast of the garden, home to 116 trees of four species.
“This patronage brings home a message that is more vital now than ever. Each of us can be an agent of change for the ecosystems of tomorrow, whether natural or cultural,” said the house, which is owned by luxury conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
The initiative is part of Dior’s efforts to find solutions to preserve the environment and fight against climate change.

Boss RTW Fall 2020

Ingo Wilts wants to bring a bit of color to his Boss collections — and surprise people by doing so. “Typically everybody says that the Boss palette is centered around dark navy, green and black, to which we reply: not this time,” Wilts said backstage.
The tone was set from the first look at the venue: a lilac carpeted music hall in which guests sipped matching mauve smoothies while waiting for the show to start. Models walked out to a live string orchestra wearing a precise curation of colors to complement the traditional black, navy and gray Boss looks. Lilac, a daring tone for men’s wear, looked particularly good on masculine suits, while the hue freshened up an oversized duster coat and snuggly knitted polo neck jumper for women. Rust tones brought warmth to leather coats and trousers for men, as did pops of orange on parkas and faux-fur coats.
Texture was added in the form of long fringes on suits, sleeveless dresses and leather handbags, a nod to the Charleston dresses of the Roaring Twenties in honor of the new decade, and zebra patterns on coats, skirts and men’s jackets. “We didn’t want a print that was just a print,

Kenneth Ize Steps Up With Paris Fashion Week Debut

PARIS — This time last year, Kenneth Ize was preparing to showcase his work in Paris as one of the semifinalists of the LVMH Prize for Young Designers. Twelve months on, he’s gearing up for his first runway show in the French capital, to be held on the opening day of Paris Fashion Week.
“I wasn’t expecting this to come that soon, so it’s just an amazing journey,” marveled the Nigerian designer, who made it to the finals of the LVMH Prize. Though he didn’t leave with an award, the connections he made in Paris have opened many doors, with Ize’s retail network doubling to 18 stores for the spring 2020 season.
Having shown at Arise Fashion Week last April, he’s ready to bring his gender-fluid collection to a bigger stage, with the support of Naomi Campbell, who co-owns the fashion week held in Lagos. The British model is expected at the Paris show, to be held at the Palais de Tokyo on Feb. 24, though whether she will model for Ize again, or sit in the front row, is undecided.
“I just need to grow this brand and I need to open it to investors,” Ize said of his decision to show in

Weekend Max Mara Taps Lucinda Chambers for Capsule Collection

WEEKEND TREAT: Re-Find is the name of the new Signature Collection by Weekend Max Mara for fall created in collaboration with Lucinda Chambers, former fashion director of British Vogue.
“I know the brand very well. There is a shop close to where I live and I love it for what it stands for — comfort, relaxation, style and easiness,” said Chambers, who created what she believes is “the perfect wardrobe” of a few essential pieces that can be mixed and matched.
Chambers was also proud for having used fabrics that pre-existed for the brand — hence the name Re-Find. “It’s a fusion between Weekend and what I love,” she said. “I understand their customer, who is not afraid of color. They are very interesting women who feel independent and are into their own personal style.”
She chose fabrics such as cotton gabardine for pants, rustic wool for outerwear and conceived designs with unexpected contrasting stripes and floral patterns, patchwork checks and layers. A poncho-blanket was worn over a fluid dress, while oversize, mannish pants were paired with a form-fitting, skinny sweater and an oversize cape.
The color palette was vivid, with shots of ink-blue, orange, rust and earthy hues. Eccentric accessories included the maxi

Puma Introduces Sustainable Active Collection

Puma is jumping deeper into the sustainability game.
The German sportswear brand has teamed with First Mile, a company that supports recycling programs in impoverished communities, on a sustainable activewear collection.
The Puma x First Mile line consists of performance apparel and footwear for men and women all made from recycled plastics. The 25-piece collection includes performance T-shirts, leggings, jackets and Puma’s LQD Cell sneakers that are made from recycled yarn manufactured from plastic bottles by First Mile.
“Even though one of the key benefits of this partnership is social impact, the Puma and First Mile program has diverted over 40 tons of plastic waste from landfills and oceans, just for the products made for 2020. This roughly translates into 1,980,286 plastic bottles being reused,” said Stefan Seidel, head of corporate sustainability for Puma. “The pieces from this co-branded training collection range from shoes, Ts, shorts, pants and jackets — all the apparel is made of at least 83 percent to even 100 percent from the more sustainable yarn sourced from First Mile.”

The Beckhams Won London Fashion Week, According to Launchmetrics Data 

LONDON — Victoria Beckham was a clear winner during London Fashion Week when it came to media impact, according to the latest data by Launchmetrics, the data research and insights company.
Beckham’s brand ranked first among Launchmetrics’ list of top five brands with the greatest media impact value, the impact a brand has with its marketing activities across social media, print and online, at London Fashion Week, with Burberry, Tommy Hilfiger, Richard Quinn and JW Anderson filling out the remainder of the top five.
David Beckham’s Instagram post — the traditional picture he posts of himself, his sons Cruz and Romeo and daughter Harper sitting in the Victoria Beckham front row — was the top-performing single post and generated $ 1.07 million. It was posted to show support for his wife’s fall 2020 show, which took place in The Banqueting House in Whitehall, Westminster.
Victoria Beckham also topped Launchmetrics’ top five brands’ owned media list. Falling behind her were Burberry, Tommy Hilfiger, Vivienne Westwood and Aadnevik.

Valextra Launches Collective Project

ALL TOGETHER NOW: For the first time, Valextra will present in Milan today a number of its storied handbags revisited by Sunnei, Plan C by Carolina Castiglioni, Arthur Arbesser, La DoubleJ by J.J. Martin and Massimo Alba.
“I’ve always believed that unity is strength,” said Valextra’s chief executive officer Sara Ferrero during a preview at the brand’s showroom. She underscored how it is increasingly “complicated to find resources and talent” for small independent brands in a scenario where large groups are polarizing the industry, and political, social and financial turmoil, from Brexit and the Hong Kong protests to the coronavirus, are impacting businesses. “We need to think outside the box,” she said. Ferrero said the idea was to explain “what the Milanese legacy is about. I find this is not really clear outside of Italy. Milan is seen as a city for shopping, perhaps a bit boring, not like Rome or Barcelona, but we want to celebrate its history, its design and art, how it combines entrepreneurial and creative talent.”
Called Extra Milano, the collection is genderless and will be distributed throughout the year, with monthly drops starting in May with Martin’s take on Valextra. “We are all friends,” said Ferrero of

Bottega Veneta RTW Fall 2020

The question going in: a year into his role, could Daniel Lee survive the meteoric ride on a squishy It Pouch and live up to the hype? The answer coming out: You betcha.
On Saturday night, the designer’s vision for Bottega Veneta came into full focus: slightly subversive, wonderfully weird stealth wealth for the Turbulent 2020s.
At 34, Lee is one of the first children of the Nineties to head a major luxury house and his affinity for the decade characterized by all black and minimalist grit punctuated by the acid flash of rave culture, was on full display on the runway, which articulated a way forward for fashion that was not minimalism, maximalism or street, but a meeting of all three (sans logos, of course).
Backstage, he acknowledged the Nineties “are embedded” in him, but said it was Bottega Veneta’s trailblazing handbag history that was his starting point — specifically, how the brand made its name breaking with Sixties structured bags and introducing softness and sensuality into the category with leather weave intrecciato.
That thought led to more freedom, movement and comfort in the clothes, which in previous collections have been a wee bit unwieldy and stiff.
Vive la différence.

The Valentino Le Blanc Project Unveiled in Milan

COLOR ME WHITE: “The white shirt is the most democratic and most universal, but it can also be the most individual” garment, according to Pier Paolo Piccioli, who unveiled the Valentino Le Blanc project in Milan at the brand’s boutique on Via Montenapoleone during fashion week.
For spring 2020, Piccioli presented a study of the white shirt, proving his sartorial expertise and showing the shirt in several proportions, whether as a dress or a tunic, simple or elaborated. Le Blanc celebrates the ability to make the culture of couture more visible, said the designer.
With Le Blanc, Valentino also offered a customization project for the white shirt.
On the upper floor, a seamstress showed the variations available — from a beautiful white-on-white sequined floral pattern to one’s initials in different fonts.
“There are a couple of things I love — denim, a tuxedo for women, some things that are interesting to reinvent but the white shirt is one of the most interesting. It’s like a white toile,” said Piccioli. 
Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, who photographed Valentino’s spring campaign, also attended the cocktail event to launch the project.

Eyewear Trade Show Mido Postpones Dates Due to Coronavirus

MILAN — International eyewear trade show Mido has postponed its upcoming edition slated to run Feb. 29 to March 2 at Milan’s Rho-Fiera fairgrounds due to uncertainty over the coronavirus epidemic in Italy.
The fair’s organizer said the trade show would be held between the end of May and early June.
“It’s a decision we took in the wake of the seriousness of the current situation and as a response to our exhibitors and visitors,” commented Giovanni Vitaloni, president of Mido.
“The evolution of the health crisis in our country left us no doubts in deciding to postpone the 2020 edition of the show,” he added.
As of Saturday night, according to media reports, 60 Italians were diagnosed with the virus in the past two days, including 47 people in the Lombardy region, of which one resides on the outskirts of Milan.
“It’s a double effort being a week away from the show, but we cannot think about celebrating our 50th anniversary in such a serious historical context for the world and especially, in this moment, for our country,” Vitaloni added. “Our sense of responsibility not only as entrepreneurs but also as human beings, for our families, children and colleagues forced us to take this

The designer was meant to hold two shows, at 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. CET, in his Via Bergognone headquarters, closing Milan Fashion Week, which kicked off on Feb. 19. “The decision was made to avoid exposing guests to any dangers to their health,” said the company. Armani held his Emporio Armani fall show on Friday.
As reported a few hours earlier, international eyewear trade show Mido has postponed its upcoming edition slated to run Feb. 29 to March 2 at Milan’s Rho-Fiera fairgrounds due to uncertainty over the coronavirus epidemic in Italy.
The fair’s organizer said the trade show would be held between the end of May and early June.
As of Saturday night, according to media reports, 60 Italians were diagnosed with the virus in the past two days, including 47 people in the Lombardy region, of which one resides on the

Giorgio Armani Speaks Up

HEAR ME OUT: Giorgio Armani had a bone to pick on Friday after his Emporio Armani show.
“I am tired of hearing about trends. They are nothing. I want to improve the woman who lives now. There’s all this musing about the past as a trend, but I don’t agree with it at all,” said a feisty Armani. “So please stop writing about trends,” he urged the journalists assembled backstage for a briefing about the collection. “Write about what [Alessandro] Michele did at Gucci, what Miuccia Prada did at Prada and what I am doing, but let’s not play this game. You should get to the bottom of it, what is the thinking behind what we do. Stop being dominated by raving about the Nineties [as an example]. I am at a moment when I can say what I think,” he added with a knowing smile.
So much so that Armani’s additional comments sparked some online controversy.
“There is so much talk about women being raped, but women today are regularly ‘raped’ by designers,” said Armani, meaning that they are pushed to wear clothes that can be inappropriate and not fit for their age or size. “I am thinking of certain ads where

Etro RTW Fall 2020

The Etros are bundling up, and saddling up, for fall, whipping blankets into fringed coats and shawls, working warm woolen checks and plaids into tailored pieces and taking style cues from Argentina’s gauchos.
Last month, Kean Etro sent out his wooly layers and paisleys in the brand’s men’s wear show, and his sister Veronica Etro led those trends into women’s territory, adding flashes of gold thread, silver studded leather and cashmere.
“I was into coziness, everything that wraps and protects. So a lot of knitwear, a lot of capes and warmth, loose fabrics. And then, at the same time, a lot of tailoring, and the eternal charm of the dandy,” Etro said. “I call them haute bohemians.”
Prince of Wales check suits with cropped trousers and boots recalled Argentina’s horsemen, while long tassel-edged or plaid coats came cinched with thick, silver-studded leather belts. Indeed, some models look like they’d walked off the runways of Ralph Lauren, with their shrunken, striped ponchos, fringed blanket coats and wide-brimmed hats.
Prairie dresses glinted with gold threads and were printed with swirls and little dots. “I call them the cosmic prints because they seem like constellations, or like fireworks in the night,” said the designer, who covered the

Lululemon’s China Stores Respond to Coronavirus Outbreak

Lululemon is tweaking its China operations in response to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. 
The athleticwear brand issued an update on Friday saying that most of its 38 stores in China have been closed since Feb. 3, but that some of the units are “now operating on a reduced schedule.” 
Representatives for Lululemon could not immediately be reached for comment on what the “reduced schedule” involves and how many stores it affects. The company said its e-commerce site continues to operate.

“We’re inspired by the resilience and commitment of our team in China as we navigate the emerging impacts of the coronavirus,” Lululemon chief executive officer Calvin McDonald said in a statement. “The safety of our people is our highest priority, and we are adjusting store operations based upon the recommendations of local authorities.” 
“Despite the current disruption to our growing business in China, we remain confident in the long-term opportunities this market holds for Lululemon,” he said. 
The company said it has been working with local authorities to figure out decisions on store operations there, and said it expects to issue another update during its next earnings call scheduled for March.
The outbreak still appears to be concentrated in China, where it has sickened at least

H.E.R. Brings Her Signature Style to Diff Eyewear

When it comes to H.E.R.’s style, her signature piece has been her black tinted sunglasses worn both on and off-stage.
The R&B singer has skyrocketed to fame over the last few years — releasing her second album “I Used to Know Her” last year and winning two Grammy Awards — all the while masking her identity behind her go-to shades in an effort to let her music speak for itself.
While H.E.R. has revealed more about her background over the years, her tinted sunglasses are still her go-to accessory, and are now the source of inspiration behind her first collaboration with Diff Eyewear.
“I feel like shades are just the icing on the cake and they add that extra oomph to my outfit,” she said in an interview, talking about her style. “I like to pair clothes or accessories that wouldn’t usually go together. I’m a sneaker girl, but I like to make comfort fancy.”
The four-piece H.E.R. x Diff Eyewear collection includes black and gold versions of the Bella sunglasses, an oversize square-shaped frame that the singer describes as “bold and very bossy.”

Tod’s RTW Fall 2020

Tod’s first look clearly telegraphed that a new creative director is in place: easy and baggy sea-blue corduroy pants, worn under a mannish beige blazer and azure blouse, a wool scarf casually wound around the neck.
Walter Chiapponi, who joined the company in October after years working at Bottega Veneta with the brand’s former creative director Tomas Maier, said he “wanted to give a soul and a total look to Italian lifestyle.”
He succeeded, with a collection that had a romantic vein, seen in the mannish gray felt coat delicately embroidered with azure flowers, as well as a Seventies’ hippy touch, as in the patchwork leather coats. A beautiful plum coat was sensually worn over a pair of corduroy pants, a large hobo bag a must-have.
Chiapponi developed Tod’s bread-and-butter moccasins with chunky heels and thick stitches on the toes. In sync with the sustainability efforts the industry is putting in place, he used existing scraps of leather in structured clutches.
There were also several denim jeans, not often seen on the Tod’s runway, and puffers, which contributed to the younger mood of the collection.
Chiapponi’s interest in Fifties architecture and art — he listed Alberto Burri, Lucio Fontana and Gio Ponti as some of

Eric Buterbaugh Throws Party at Just One Eye

“We’re calling it a relaunch,” said Eric Buterbaugh, celebrating his fragrance line at Just One Eye, the art and fashion boutique in Los Angeles. “It’s so amazing to have my brand in the store and for [owner Paola Russo] to let us clear it out and throw a party like this.”
It was a disco party — also held to toast his birthday, which was a few days away. “It’s everything I love,” he continued, looking around the space. The decor, kitschy and Seventies-themed, showcased blown-up pink flamingos.
“It’s a little bit campy,” he shared with a grin. The tall, wading bird is prominently featured on the fragrance packaging, inspired by a trip to Necker Island. “It’s that island that Richard Branson owns. They have like, I want to say, 2,000 flamingos there. Have you seen them in that mass? It’s the most beautiful thing I have ever seen in the world.”
Buterbaugh, who counts Demi Moore and Gwyneth Paltrow as friends and clients, is one of Hollywood’s top florists. Out in support were Courteney Cox, Gia Coppola, Monique Lhuillier, Nicole Richie, Rachel Zoe, Tallulah Willis, Sara Foster, Jacqui Getty and Nicky Hilton.

Harry and Meghan Withdraw ‘Sussex Royal’ Trademark Applications

After much analysis and speculation, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, have withdrawn trademark applications for their Sussex Royal brand.
What some had pegged as potentially becoming a billion-dollar brand, the Sussex Royal brand is no longer every marketer’s dream that it once was. But the power couple could still very well reach billionaire status with their various speaking engagements, book deals, talk show appearances and other pursuits, according to one London-based branding expert.
According to news reports Friday, a spokeswoman for the Sussexes said in a statement, “While the Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new nonprofit organization, given the specific U.K. government rules surrounding use of the word ‘Royal,’ it has been therefore agreed that their nonprofit organization, when it is announced this spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘Sussex Royal’ in any territory post spring 2020,” she said.
After months of intense debate about the prospect of the Sussex Royal brand, today’s announcement sets forth a new course for the soon-to-be entrepreneurs. The former “Suits” actress and her husband, who call Vancouver Island home, will officially give up their royal duties

Versace RTW Fall 2020

Versace has had a banner season — nearly breaking the Internet with the last women’s runway show by sending out Jennifer Lopez in (almost) the same jungle-print gown she wore to the 2000 Grammys, then outfitting new-gen voluptuous beauty Lizzo as a Hollywood goddess for the Oscars earlier this month.
But on the runway Friday night, there were no star turns other than Donatella herself, projected Warholian-style in repeating portraits on the digital video screen spanning the 40-meter runway. She may still be the figurehead, but there’s no denying the house of Versace has changed under Capri Holdings: it’s less about charting new design territory, and more about repackaging greatest hits, with a few updates for the changing times. Having tackled age inclusivity (thank you, Nineties supermodels and J.Lo) in September, this season, it was on to gender.
“Today’s generation does not care about gender…there’s no female or male,” the designer said during a preshow press conference of her decision to take her show coed. That was after she opened with a few choice words about the horrific rise in hate crimes around the world: “What happened in Germany a few days ago is almost the last drop, I mean, we need

FIT’s Joyce Brown Takes Several Steps to Deal with Fallout of MFA Fashion Show

Joyce F. Brown, president of Fashion Institute of Technology, released a new statement Friday evening to the FIT community updating the steps the college has taken and continues to take in response to the fallout of the MFA Fashion show on Feb. 7.
As reported, during that show, model Amy Lefevre refused to wear accessories she considered racist that FIT graduate Junkai Huang showed with his looks. She walked the runway without them and told WWD she felt uncomfortable wearing them. Earlier this week, Brown issued a lengthy apology to those who participated in the show, to students and those who were offended by what they saw. The accessories, in question, were large prosthetic ears and lips and bushy eyebrows
“This moment, in our minds, is not about closing a chapter and letting wounds heal. It is the beginning of accountability. And we cannot expect our community to trust us without a full examination of how this came about,” said Brown in the new statement. She said FIT  has commissioned an independent investigation “of ourselves.”

Kylie Jenner’s ‘Stormi’ Clothing Line Hits Trademark Roadblock

Kylie Jenner’s growing fashion and beauty empire has hit a roadblock.
The 22-year-old beauty mogul is in a legal battle with New Orleans-based clothing company, Business Moves Consulting Inc., which is opposing her trademark applications for her two-year-old daughter, Stormi Webster. The company had successfully filed a trademark for “Stormi Couture” in March 2018 for clothing such as dresses, footwear, hats, pants and T-shirts, among other items.
Court documents filed on Feb. 18 state that the company believes Jenner’s trademark request for “Stormi World” is “confusingly similar to [Business Moves Consulting’s] Stormi Couture trademark in terms of its appearance, sound, meaning and overall commercial impression and it is likely to cause confusion, mistake and deception” between the company’s brand and Jenner’s. The documents also state that Business Moves Consulting believes that Jenner has no intent on creating goods or services under the trademark.

Fendi RTW Fall 2020

Extreme dieter Karl Lagerfeld didn’t hold back when it came to his disdain for larger sizes, once telling an interviewer “nobody wants to see curvy women.” But Silvia Venturini Fendi is in charge now, and on Thursday night she put inclusivity front and center on the Fendi runway with more sizes (Paloma Elsesser) and ages (Carolyn Murphy and Karen Elson), marking a new era for the house.
What would Karl say?
“Times change and he was always ready to change his mind…,” Venturini Fendi said backstage, explaining that for her second collection working as a solo act following Lagerfeld’s death last February she wanted to think about “the woman I want to dress — strong, independent and free, but within the traditional codes of femininity.”
That meant drawing inspiration from boudoir and silver screen femme fatales, including those Lagerfeld himself costumed for the Seventies film, “Maitresse.”
”It was a movie that made a big scandal at that time because it’s the story of a woman who lives in Paris in a two-floor flat and on one level, she has a very bourgeois and normal life, and in the basement she is a dominatrix,” Venturini Fendi said.

3 Ways Rihanna Electrified the Fashion and Beauty Industries

Rihanna’s effect on the fashion and beauty industries is undoubtable.
Long acclaimed for her eclectic, edgy style, the Barbados-born singer who turns 32 today, has brought her star power to a number of brands — including Armani, Dior and Manolo Blahnik, to name a few — before delving into her entrepreneurial side.
She made her business foray in 2017, creating her Fenty Beauty line with inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of the brand’s mission. Rihanna launched the brand with an unprecedented 40-shade foundation range — much larger than the average beauty brand offer starting out — and has expanded the range to now include 50 options, setting the new standard that brands have soon after followed.
Rihanna then took that ethos and applied it to the intimates industry, hosting a lingerie fashion show for the second collection of her Savage x Fenty line that challenged beleaguered lingerie giant, Victoria’s Secret.
She’s now bringing her business acumen to luxury fashion with her Fenty fashion label in partnership with LVMH. Just a few months after launching the brand, Rihanna was the recipient of the Urban Luxe Award at the British Fashion Awards in December.

Luisa Beccaria RTW Fall 2020

Florals aren’t just for spring: designer Luisa Beccaria delivered a botanical extravaganza for her fall collection, which was inspired by a winter garden and shown during a presentation at Lu’Bar, the restaurant helmed by her children Lucilla, Lucrezia and Ludovico.
In addition to her usual romantic dresses — a pink princess gown with an embroidered tulle skirt, a high-neck chiffon dress in a pink Liberty print — Beccaria experimented with elements from a winter wardrobe to make her delicate, floral-printed silhouettes weather-appropriate: thin floral-print turtlenecks were worn with most of the looks, including a light gray velvet dress with white embroideries and a Peter Pan collar worn over faded flowery leggings. There were a couple of outerwear options, such as a faux fur burgundy jacket and pink herringbone coats.
Dark blue foliage silhouettes snaked up straight-leg denim jeans, and an allover chintz was spotted on a chiffon dress, matching turtleneck, fabric boots and even the sofa the model was sitting on. The styling was cleverly done: all the models sported blue hair, giving a bit of edge to the looks, while the allover floral prints were almost surrealistic on some of the silhouettes: The models literally blended into the background.

Virgie Tovar’s Plus-size Personality Talks Fashion, Body Positivity

Virgie Tovar was on the hunt for a few household products when she caught a glimpse of Target’s new swim campaign. 
There was a woman with a muffin top hanging over the bikini bottoms. Another one had visible burn marks. Yet another with pregnancy scars. 
“I just kind of stopped dead in my tracks,” Tovar told WWD. 
The advocate, influencer, author of books like “You Have the Right to Remain Fat” and plus-size personality knows a lot about super-size fashion. She’s worked with brands such as Curvy Couture lingerie, Dia&Co., Eloquii, Torrid and Anthropologie, has a master’s degree in what she calls “fat studies, essentially,” and travels around the country to talk about weight-based discrimination. 
Still, “I literally never thought that in my lifetime that I would see that. I grew up fat. I come from a fat family. I experienced a lot of fat shaming and fat phobia growing up. And it really impacted how I walked through the world.”

A Surprising Project Is Brewing at Fondazione Prada

COMING UP AT FONDAZIONE PRADA: The next event to be held at Fondazione Prada was hard to guess. Miuccia Prada revealed on Thursday that the foundation will host a three-year project on neuroscience starting this year. Speaking ahead of her Prada show, the designer was reluctant to provide details as it is still a work in progress and it does not have a title yet.
“Glamour is a word I never use, but I’m using it more often when I work at the Fondazione rather than when I work in fashion because many intellectuals are insisting for Prada to be in the exhibit on science we’re doing,” said Prada, adding that “the most important brainiacs in the world said they will attend.”
The Milan headquarters of Fondazione Prada, which was established in 1993, is a complex comprising seven existing buildings recovered from a distillery dating back to 1916 and three new structures, including Torre, all located in Largo Isarco, in the southern part of Milan, and designed by Rem Koolhaas, with Chris van Duijn and Federico Pompignoli, from his Rotterdam-based architecture firm OMA. While the location was first unveiled in May 2015, Torre was the last building to be finished and unveiled in

A. Teodoro RTW Fall 2020

There is a detail in Elsa Schiaparelli’s biography that has remained stuck in designer Albino Teodoro’s memory: When she felt uninspired by the contents of her wardrobe before going to a party, Schiaparelli confessed to simply draping herself in a piece of fabric, tying it directly around her body.
The focus was very much on fabric and wild volumes in A. Teodoro’s fall collection, including an extravagant raw silk red opera dress with pouf sleeves that would have been a perfect match for Schiaparelli’s eccentric taste. The designer presented a compact collection of 20 silhouettes in a restricted color palette of black, cream and red, delivering an exquisite selection of evening looks that are begging for a red-carpet moment.
A cloud-like white top was paired with a flowing black silk skirt tied simply on its side, while a stunning black flower-printed jacquard suit jacket had, instead of buttons, a cropped bustier corset holding it together. Even the outerwear had couture touches: a boxy black wool coat was turned into a statement piece of its own by the addition of a voluminous asymmetric front ruffle in black duchesse satin.

Behind — and Under — Moschino’s Marie-Antoinette Hairstyle

CANDY HEADS: Beauty looks at the Milan Fashion Week reached new heights when Bella and Gigi Hadid, Kaia Gerber and Irina Shayk walked the Moschino fall 2020 catwalk sporting baroque, pastel-toned wigs inspired by Marie-Antoinette.
Interpreting creative director Jeremy Scott’s intention to mix the 18th-century inspiration with a rock vibe, hair stylist Paul Hanlon played the modern Léonard-Alexis Autié — the famed hairdresser behind the eccentric looks of the French Queen — and created the intricate wigs, which required a week of work.
“Hair looks are characterized by extreme and very high volumes. Together with Jeremy Scott, we took inspiration from the colors of the macarons, making everything a little more punk,” said Hanlon of the wigs, which came in pastel shades of pink, azure, green and lilac, as well as in the more traditional blonde and brunette options.

Backstage at Moschino’s fall 2020 show.

To create the look, Hanlon first divided the hair into four sections and flatted each one on the head weaving braids adhered to the roots. He then spritzed a generous amount of hairspray and blow-dried the mane to create a solid base for the eccentric wigs. These were previously coiffed backcombing hair around a cylindrical structure and shaping

Loro Piana to Open a New Flagship in Tokyo

NEW IN JAPAN: Loro Piana will open a new flagship in Tokyo’s luxury Ginza district in May.
The facade of the four-level banner was designed by Japanese architect Jun Aoki. Inspired by a scarf, it is the only facade on the street that is not flat.
The company counts 171 stores in the world, and in Japan, with the addition of the Ginza unit, there are 18 units. To mark the launch, Loro Piana will create a number of dedicated products specially made for the flagship.
The brand is helmed by Fabio d’Angelantonio, who joined the company in September 2016 from the Luxottica Group.
While the essence of the luxury brand and its investments into sourcing the best yarns and materials around the world remains constant, the company, based in Italy’s Quarona, has transitioned from a family-owned structure to a managerial organization, following the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s acquisition of a majority stake in the summer of 2013.
Antoine Arnault, son of LVMH chief executive officer Bernard Arnault, is Loro Piana’s chairman and Pier Luigi Loro Piana is vice chairman.

Channeling a sartorial inspiration, the brand presented a chic gray skirt suit showing a blazer with an inlaid belt putting the focus on the waist for a feminine silhouette. Asymmetric knitted sets and dresses exuded effortless elegance, while a chocolate brown pleated tulle evening gown showed the most glamorous side of the brand’s timeless aesthetic.
WWD Critique: For sure, Fabiana Filippi is known not only for the upscale quality and for the wearability of its designs, but this season the label also demonstrated the ability to play with current trends seamlessly integrating them in its elegant fashion language.

The Last Days of Barneys New York

NEW YORK — Standing smack-dab in the middle of Barneys New York’s subterranean beauty floor at its Madison Avenue flagship, the onetime beacon of luxury commerce now resembles a set from the depths of a Space-Age horror film.
Light bounced off the stark white fixtures that once held tubes of luxury lipstick and antiaging potions as fluorescent track lighting flickered along a mirrored wall where perfume bottles had been displayed like prized whiskies. They were gone, as were all of the skin-care testers — save for a few straggler bottles of Augustinus Bader’s much fussed about $ 300 “miracle” cream, which seemed to have been strategically decanted of their contents.

What was once at the cutting edge of fashion, entertainment and consumption has quickly been rendered as a time capsule from grander, off-line times. Barneys’ famed flagship will close on Sunday, sold through of its last stained velvet chair and scratched steel display case.
“This is Stanley Kubrick-esque for sure,” said a stationery designer, who once sold at Barneys and had returned to document its final days with a series of cell-phone photos. Over the last week, the dissolution of one of New York’s

Antonio Berardi Designs Capsule for Marina Rinaldi

BERARDI’S TAKE: Marina Rinaldi unveiled during Milan Fashion Week a capsule designed by Antonio Berardi, who said the experience was “an interesting learning curve,” as it allowed him to rethink his style and aesthetics on different body types.
Berardi’s sensual lacing inspired by corsets were placed on the back of jackets and on the sides of skirts and pencil dresses, and silk chiffon floor-lengths dresses or blouses were printed with a pattern reminiscent of the marbled perfumed papers that used to line drawers.
“My mother used to wear Marina Rinaldi, so I was thrilled to be asked to collaborate,” Berardi said. “I always try to bring out the best in a woman, to have respect, so the looks are never too vulgar or out there. These are 10 pieces meant to last for more than one season and to be mixed and matched, worn from day to evening.”
Berardi has always worked with strong colors and here, too, he used French blue, a pill-box red or flame, as he described it, and black. “Women like bright colors,” he contended.
Jackets with trompe-l’oeil lapels were worn with gloves embellished with a chain-bijou appliqué, a detail that, similarly to the golden multichain necklaces, are important

Jil Sander RTW Fall 2020

Old Celine? Fuggedaboutit. There’s a new brand of intellectual femininity to believe in: Jil Sander.
On Wednesday night, designers Luke and Lucie Meier proved to be new leaders of Milan Fashion Week with their spectacular collection shown at Casa del Design, the city’s forthcoming museum of industrial design.
In a soothingly spare white hall with arched windows evocative of a church, the models walked out as if in ceremony, taking seats in simple cane chairs lining the runway. It meant all the more time to linger on the gorgeous clothes, which at every turn managed to be restrained without being plain, feminine without being overly frilly, special without feeling like one-season wonders.
“It’s not about minimalism, it’s about purity,” Lucie Meier said backstage, explaining the duo’s approach, which felt more everywoman accessible than ever this season.
Tailoring was contoured to the feminine form, as on a beautiful curved black coat with soft ties at the wrist that could be a wardrobe hero piece, and on a black sleeveless long line blazer shaped at the waist, and side-slit skirt, both made of ribbed knit for a soft touch.
Cape details added noble grace to several pieces in the collection, including an ivory ribbed cashmere sweater dress

Italian Fashion Chamber Shows Solidarity With China

LOVING CHINA: As the coronavirus outbreak is trapping Chinese designers and fashion folks in the country, the Italian Camera della Moda officially kicked off Milan Fashion Week on Tuesday night with the “China, we are with you” initiative showing the local fashion world’s solidarity with the affected country.
As reported, the project aims to involve members of the Chinese fashion community through live-streaming of the shows on Tencent-owned platforms, including WeChat, dedicated social media platforms, including a brand new Weibo account, and the creation of ad-hoc videos, backstage content and interviews enabling buyers and designers to partake remotely in the fashion experience.
“This initiative was created to share a message of closeness, trust and strength. In a moment of crisis the fashion world has to stay united and build bridges and not walls. We decided to use technology to bring the experience of Milan Fashion Week to the Chinese world,” said Carlo Capasa, president of the Italian fashion chamber.
Further stressing its commitment, the association struck a deal with Chic Group, a real estate developer, financial analyst and brand management consultancy, which has been supporting Chinese designers through its Fashion Town in Xi’an and its network of multibrand stores called Il Parco.

Alberta Ferretti RTW Fall 2020

Will the real Alberta Ferretti please stand up?
It’s been two years since the designer once known for ethereal evening pivoted her business to daywear, but it’s still a bit unclear what exactly she stands for.
While the spring 2020 collection was about boho separates filtered through rose-colored, Seventies glasses, fall 2020 was about…well, too many things.
The collection seemed to reference the Eighties, with a pleated pants-palooza of yuppie checked cashmere tailoring and chunky gold jewelry, as well as cool-girl riffs on the leather dressing trend that had pleated trousers tucked into tall boots, worn with oversize bombers. The new denim was old denim — in a washed black, pleated baggy silhouette, worn with soft spun mohair sweaters. It was all OK, but lacked the kind of distinction that would make one sit up and say, “Oh, that’s Ferretti.”
Then out came enough ruffles, ruches, fringes and frills to party like it’s 1989. Candy-colored puff-sleeve blouses tucked into skirts ending just over the boots, and black chiffon gowns and aprons weighed down with metallic brocade or silver fringe embroideries occasionally veered down the path of matronly.
Even if the idea was to zigzag between two sides of the dressed-up Eighties canon, it was hard

New York Underground Fashion Lives on With SC103

It was the evening after New York Fashion Week had ended, but the road was not yet over for Claire McKinney and Sophie Andes-Gascon of the emerging label SC103.
Last week the design duo showed their sophomore collection in an empty storefront on lower Ludlow Street — where the runway spilled out onto the sidewalk, causing models and errant pedestrians to share the same pavement. It demonstrated McKinney and Andes-Gascon’s willingness to cast themselves outside the established fashion industry.
SC103, named for McKinney and Andes-Gascon’s shared apartment in Clinton Hill in Brooklyn, N.Y., launched with a similarly underground runway show six months ago. The event drew hundreds of downtown creative types and featured artist Bobbi Salvör Menuez, San Francisco creative Jackie Shuya Tan, Café Forgot cofounder Vita Haas and fashion multihyphenate Maryam Nassir Zadeh as models.
Uncertain if they would ever show again, the collection was a now-or-never effort, with the designers parading a bounty of references and techniques that explored elements of femininity and handicraft. This season the same crowd returned to see a thoughtful, more focused collection that was based in shock.
One evening in the months after their last show, McKinney and Andes-Gascon’s apartment caught on fire, destroying most of their

Brunello Cucinelli RTW Fall 2020

Brunello Cucinelli has carefully and clearly molded and sharpened its luxurious image season after season and the brand is further emphasizing its identity for fall.
“We went back to some minimalism, cleaning up in an important way,” said Carolina Cucinelli, daughter of the namesake founder. This doesn’t mean eschewing elaborate workmanship, as in the beautiful organza bomber with sequined trims or the embroidered, irregular crochet top with a three-dimensional foliage effect.
In Cucinelli’s world, minimalism meant lots of winter white, beige and graphic touches of black as well as an intriguing juxtaposition of men’s wear fabrics with feminine details. Examples included a tailored light charcoal blazer with bold shoulders tucked into a floor-length, pleated and fluid napa leather or tulle skirt.
Leather was more relevant than usual in this collection, which had a strong equestrian inspiration. High boots were worn with knee-length Bermudas and cozy ribbed sweaters fit for any English countryside walk. Cucinelli played with masculine and feminine elements pairing pinstriped pants or pied-de-poule vests with an allover splatter of sequins and laminated leather blouses.
Shirts were oversize and worn like a coat in the softest cashmere ever — after all, one wouldn’t expect any less from Cucinelli.

Jordan Joins Forces With Attico for Women’s Apparel Launch in Italy

MILAN — Nike’s Jordan Brand has tapped two ambassadors to celebrate the recent launch of its women’s apparel line in Italy: The Attico’s founders Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini.
On Wednesday, the brand kicked off Milan Fashion Week by taking over the city’s central Museo del Novecento museum to stage a workshop hosted by the two entrepreneurs, who have been teasing the initiative on their personal Instagram accounts.
Ambrosio and Tordini centered the workshop around the concept of upcycling, providing leftover and excess fabric of their brand to invite attendees to rework them and create new accessories.
Around a long black table installed in the museum’s Lucio Fontana hall overlooking the Duomo cathedral, 60 people — selected out of the more than 1,000 who registered for the event — crafted bottle bags, belts and jewelry from The Attico’s discarded textiles as well as from former basketballs, basket net ropes and chains.
“We’re honored they have picked us as ambassadors of Milan and of this project,” said Ambrosio, underscoring the importance of upcycling for her.
“We already approached this theme other times and we strongly believe this is the right path to follow,” she added, referencing the brand’s former capsule collections of upcycled vintage denim developed with

EXCLUSIVE: Gemma Chan to Attend Max Mara Show

SCREEN TEST: Probably best known for her melancholic, yet radiant screen presence in “Crazy Rich Asians,” Gemma Chan is the recipient of the 2020 Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award.
The British actress is expected to attend the Italian brand’s fall fashion show today, and to receive her prize at the 2020 Women in Film Annual Gala on June 10 in Beverly Hills.
Max Mara has a knack for picking actresses on an upward trajectory, having also recognized the likes of Rose Byrne, Hailee Steinfeld, Chloë Grace Moretz, Katie Holmes, Zoë Saldana and Emily Blunt. Chan is the 15th recipient of the award, which recognizes her “distinguished acting achievements and personal embodiment of timeless style and grace.”
Chan recently wrapped another Marvel superhero film “Eternals,” alongside Kit Harington, Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek that will be released in November.
Up next is “Let Them All Talk,” a comedy directed by Steven Soderbergh and also starring Meryl Streep, Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest and Lucas Hedges.
Chan’s other big-screen credits include “Mary Queen of Scots” and “Captain Marvel.” She is also a seasoned theater actress and a mainstay of popular British television series, including “Humans” and “Doctor Who.”

Gucci RTW Fall 2020

Is fashion a religion? Alessandro Michele thinks it’s pretty close, with the runway show its most revered ritual. Michele dedicated his fall Gucci collection to the multitiered ritual of designing, making, staging and viewing a fashion show. He spoke of the show ritual in intimate terms, and seemed to channel old-school insider passions.
“Fashion is a complex mechanism, it’s theatrical. All of us work for this ritual, that is almost religious,” Michele said during his post-show press conference, a session filled once again with deep fashion thoughts delivered in a stream-of-consciousness monologue, save for a question or two interjected by a couple of intrepid journalists. Before he was finished, Michele would liken fashion to a circus as well as religion, and his creative role to that of a doctor and physicist. He would explain snippets of his soundtrack — the Fellini voiceover (he’s “talking about the sacredness of cinema and how much ritual there is) and Ravel’s Bolero (“a march that seems to keep going indefinitely”).
Fashion believers, Michele claimed, want to break free but can’t. “It traps you. We are all trapped. Everybody — the hairstylists, the makeup artists, everybody working together so hectically — we all say that one day

EXCLUSIVE: Christelle Kocher Talks Pucci Collaboration and Taking Her Brand Global

PARIS — Christelle Kocher’s Paris-based brand is gaining an Italian accent.
Between her collaboration with Emilio Pucci, set to bow in Milan today, and her recent alliance with entrepreneur Renzo Rosso’s fashion group OTB, the French designer is leveraging her connections across the Alps to propel her Koché brand into a new phase of expansion.
Hot on the heels of her prestigious ANDAM Grand Prize and collaborations with Nike and Converse last year, she is the first designer to be invited by Pucci to interpret its rich heritage, as part of a new strategy aimed at fostering creativity and innovation at the house, founded in 1947 in Capri.
Kocher, known for her guerrilla-style fashion shows melding sportswear influences with couture-inspired techniques, is no stranger to the brand’s history.
“I love reading the biographies of designers and I read about the life of Emilio Pucci years ago,” she said in an interview at her design studio, located on a cul-de-sac in the multicultural district of Ménilmontant in Paris. An aristocrat, Olympic skier and air force pilot, Pucci pioneered a lifestyle approach to fashion.
“He was a real character, and I think his approach was very modern. His brand was founded on comfortable jersey clothes, which was very

Virgil Abloh, Kim Jones Talk Design at Jordan Panel in Chicago

CHICAGO — Virgil Abloh has a long list of accomplishments that include creative directing one of the biggest music talents in the world and art directing one of the world’s most successful fashion houses. And he got there by skipping class.
“I’m a huge advocate for skipping class,” he said to a handful of students during a Fashion Deconstructed panel hosted here by the Jordan brand for students of its Wings program. “I remember for my final thesis for my master’s program, I essentially pinned up my work so my professor thought I was there and then I skipped class to go to a Kanye ‘College Dropout’ record signing like 10 blocks away.”
Abloh was joined by Dior Men’s artistic director Kim Jones, Jordan athlete and Washington Wizards rookie Rui Hachimura, and Jordan vice president of design Martin Lotti for the panel discussion and workshop, held at the Jordan Hub23 pop-up at the General Richard L.

Going Commando in Denim

Shoppers will soon be able to go Commando in their jeans. 
The innerwear brand is launching its first denim collection, available online at wearcommando.com starting Feb. 25 and in stores next month. 
But Kerry O’Brien, founder of Commando, isn’t trying to cover anything up: She still loves the foundational pieces that launched the brand in 2003. It’s just that the Vermont-based designer — who flew back and forth between Burlington, Vt., and New York several times during New York Fashion Week — is on the go. She needs more than one outfit to take with her. 
“Imagine opening up your closet and finding everything you love to wear,” O’Brien told WWD. “This is what we’re looking for. We want to be able to go into new categories and create the full Commando closet, not just a few pieces. Because our customer is very busy. She has things to do and she doesn’t have time to stop.” 
It’s only fitting then that the assortment is expanding.
The denim collection, which ranges in size from XS to XL, comes in three washes: indigo, ash and faded blue. Each pair retails for $ 128. There’s also the addition of the “Fast Track Collection,” which has bras and underwear that

A.L.C. RTW Fall 2020

Andrea Lieberman is direct in her design approach and evolution for A.L.C. “I never think it’s a radical departure for us,” she noted. “It’s very focused on our girl, her story, her life, her needs. For me, I definitely feel like it’s a lot about keeping things modern.”
To that end, she focused on classic items meant to round out a covetable wardrobe: Think tailoring, knitwear and jeans cut with a preppy Seventies spirit. She brought in interesting textures with chintz pleated fabrics and drapey, side-ruched corduroy tops tucked into the perfect high-waisted straight-leg jeans. A warm palette of auburn, sumac and earth tones made a roomy coat, furry jacket, sweaters and clingy knits more inviting. A tight pink polo cut with a low neckline maintained the perfect balance of nostalgia, proportion play and attitude. “These are things she puts in her closet,” Lieberman concluded. They fill “a real need in a woman’s wardrobe in a modern, sexy and effortless way.”

7 Highlights From New York Fashion Week Fall 2020

While the New York Fashion Week fall 2020 schedule lacked a number of major designer brands, the week was still full of memorable moments that sent social media abuzz.
This season, designers’ front rows had a number of viral moments, namely Leslie Jones at Christian Siriano, where videos of the comedian enthusiastically cheering on model Coco Rocha sent social media into a frenzy, and at Brandon Maxwell, where stars from Netflix’s new docu-series, “Cheer,” sat in the front row and gave each model their famous “mat-talk.”
Other designers brought some added star power to their shows, including Miley Cyrus walking at the Marc Jacobs show, Debbie Harry singing at Coach and Orville Peck performing at Michael Kors.

Roksanda RTW Fall 2020

This kaleidoscope of a collection was one of Roksanda Ilincic’s most powerful — strong on color, texture and references to the work of female artists Lee Krasner and Rana Begum, whose tie-dyed fishnets were strung across the ceiling of a courtyard at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.
Filled with regal shapes and culinary colors such as grape, bordeaux, blueberry and orange, this grand outing had a certain Joan of Arc toughness about it, and tapped into the emerging London mood. Designers have been sending out sturdy wool tailoring, supple leather, long lengths and sleeves. It’s a new suit of armor for the everyday warrior who’s fighting on the personal, professional and political front, and who wants to look fabulous, and feel comfortable, as she gallops into battle.
Ilincic showed off silk gowns with regal capes spilling down the back, and long two-tone dresses with voluminous tiers and ruffles. Bright colors burst from a sweater made from chunky braids and loops of yarn, while a belted coat was a patchwork of wooly color and texture. A pattern resembling shards of colored glass covered a dress with long, billowing sleeves that gathered gently at the elbow.

Eat, Watch, Wander and Work Out at the New London Hotspots

LONDON — Granted, there isn’t much time in between shows and presentations during the busy days of London Fashion Week. But for the lucky ones with a few hours to spare, here are some nine-to-nine ideas.
Start the day at Apple Butter Café in Seven Dials, Covent Garden, at the newly opened East-meets-West all-day café. It serves up Middle Eastern-inspired dishes such as the Croissant Florentine with beetroot sauce and a signature dessert known as The Apple.
Covent Garden has multiple new offerings across food and fashion. Not to be missed, Dominique Ansel, creator of the famous Cronut and winner of the World’s Best Pastry Chef, has opened a second outpost, Treehouse, at 24 Floral Street. The two-floor space features a French-inspired takeaway boutique bakery and bistro that serves up a selection of pastry-focused sharing plates.
Farther down Floral Street the fashion retailer Jigsaw has launched a new flagship concept while across the road, Glossier has announced that it’s hugely popular pop-up cosmetic play-space that will remain open permanently.
If you’re looking for an afternoon tea spot, or a London specialty, head to King Street in Covent Garden to sample a special afternoon tea by Petersham Nurseries and Cool Earth, a charity that protects the world’s most

Rejina Pyo dialed down the quirkiness of past collections, adamant that her clothes satisfy “working women who need to get on with their lives. I wanted these to be plain clothes done in a beautiful way. I don’t want to be in a dream world.”
So she sent out leather blouses with square necklines and mismatched buttons; delicate, shiny pouf-sleeve tops and bouclé pencil skirts; rough-edged overcoats layered over hoodies, and perky sweater and trouser combos in colors like brown and cantaloupe. The highlight was a colorful patchwork fur pieced together from factory-floor offcuts.

With help from the British Fashion Council, Wang was granted an exceptional talent fashion visa to remain in Britain.
Her solo show will carry on from her previous collections. Expect to see big hats, decadent qipao and hyperfeminine dresses with high-shine, ruched fabrics. Wang has also added some wintry pieces — and more wearable items — based on feedback from buyers.
