Everlane Opens First Permanent L.A. Store

San Francisco-based, direct-to-consumer brand Everlane has opened its first permanent shop in Los Angeles, where it all started eight years ago.
The mission-driven basics line beloved by Meghan Markle, Emma Watson, Angelina Jolie and more, has opened a 3,188 square-foot store at 1101 Abbot Kinney in Venice, stocking Everlane’s denim, Ts and popular shoe styles including the Day Heel and Day Glove, alongside seasonal new arrivals. The space features huge glass windows, tons of natural white and a dramatic archway leading to the fitting rooms. 
“Everlane has had roots in L.A. since we launched in 2011. It’s where our first product, the T-shirt, was made just outside of downtown, where they’re still made today. It’s also the home of our first pop-up and recent experiential concept store, Tread by Everlane,” said Tara Shanahan, vice president of retail at Everlane. “We know there is a huge appetite for the brand and after testing concept shops in a few different areas in L.A., we landed on Abbot Kinney for its sense of community, laid-back feel and the incredible foot traffic it sees on a day-to-day basis.”

Kirna Zabete Celebrates the Big 2-0, Set to Toast Fendi in East Hampton

Kirna Zabete is all grown up, and she’s aged beautifully.
Owner Beth Buccini on Thursday will mark the 20th anniversary – which is actually Sept. 9 – by hosting a cocktail event celebrating Fendi‘s fall 2019 collection at Kirna Zabete’s East Hampton digs at 66 Newtown
Lane.
Kirna Zabete launched a pop-up shop in East Hampton in the summer of 2016. Buccini was hooked by Labor Day. “I said there is absolutely no way I’m closing this store,” she recalled. “Everyone is relaxed. You need something to wear that night. I had a sense it would work because people started calling me in [Manhattan] and saying, ‘When are you
coming out? Can you bring me this or that.’”
No retail anniversary would be complete without without an exclusive commemorating capsule collection. Kirna Zabete’s features vibrantly-printed summer frocks and swimsuits, sensually-blended candles and acrylic neon box signs, among other products. Buccini tapped 20 designers and brands that reflect Kirna Zabete’s colorful, exuberant ethos and were chosen for being among the store’s early brands, a recent new discoveries or touching her in some other way.

Shaq Loves Big Guys, Hates Super Teams

NEW YORK — Shaquille O’Neal is a champion of the big guy.
The retired NBA star, who played for the Magic, Lakers, Celtics, Heat, Suns and Cavaliers during his 19-year Hall of Fame career, is now a sports analyst for “Inside the NBA” on TNT, an actor, real estate developer and businessman.
But it was in his role as the big and tall style ambassador for J.C. Penney that brought O’Neal to New York Monday night. He’s had a collection of big and tall men’s wear with the retailer, called Shaquille O’Neal XLG, for just under a year, and this spring, partnered with the store and Wilhelmina modeling agency to host a model search. The three winners — Chukwukere “A.K.” Ekeh, Ricardo “Ricky” Vichot and Jordan Alexander “Alex” Cochran — are featured in the Penney’s fall campaign for the collection and have been signed to Wilhelmina’s Titan division of big and tall models.
Prior to a panel discussion, O’Neal sat down with WWD to discuss what it’s like finding clothes when you’re 7-feet, 1-inch, 325 pounds, how he thinks the Reebok brand has been diluted since being owned by Adidas, and his distaste for NBA “super teams.”

The Biggest Fashion and Beauty Brand Controversies of 2019 — So Far

So far, 2019 has had no shortage of brand controversies in the fashion and beauty worlds.
The year started off with a number of gaffes from some of the biggest luxury fashion houses, in many cases resulting in public outcry, public apologies and, sometimes, changes in company policy. Some of the most notable fashion controversies of 2019 were Gucci’s infamous “blackface” balaclava and Burberry’s noose sweater. Kim Kardashian also came under fire for cultural appropriation when she revealed the name her first fashion line, a shapewear collection called Kimono.
From the backlash against Related Cos. chairman Stephen Ross and his many companies to Jaclyn Hill’s beauty brand recall, here is a breakdown of all the fashion and beauty brand controversies of 2019, so far.
Gucci accused of cultural appropriation, twice — February and May 2019

Gucci fall 2018 
Aitor Rosas Su–Ž/WWD

Gucci came under fire for cultural appropriation not once, but twice in 2019. The first incident was in February when the designer house released a balaclava-style sweater in its fall 2018 ready-to-wear collection and on its web site, which many claimed resembled blackface.
The backlash was immediate on social media, including by Gucci collaborator Dapper Dan, who took to his Twitter account to express his disappointment

Sports Bras Are Taking Over Women’s Lingerie Collections

Sports bras are winning the lingerie race. 
Somewhere between the casualization of American fashion and the desire for comfort, sports bras have become one of the preferred bra options. In fact, in the roughly $ 12 billion to $ 13 billion North American intimates apparel market, the most growth in the last three years has been in sports bras and shapewear, according to the NPD Group. 
That could explain the rise of shapewear brands, including Commando and Kim Kardashian’s new shapewear line, along with the surge in popularity of things like bodysuits. Among the sports bra category, sales in the U.S. rose 6 percent for the 12 months ending May 2019, according to the NPD Group’s Consumer Tracking Service.

The research firm also found that Millennials alone⁠ — the cohort that currently captures the biggest chunk of the women’s intimates apparel market⁠ — spent about a third of their bra budgets on sports bras in 2018. Those numbers are expected to grow as Millennials and the generation behind them continue to age, spend more money and seek comfort. But it’s not just young people that want to feel unencumbered. 
“Women of all ages are finding sports bras more comfortable and a more fitting

Tailored Brands Sells Corporate Apparel Division for $62 Million

Tailored Brands Inc. has officially exited the corporate apparel business.
The Fremont, Calif.-based parent company of Men’s Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank said early Monday that it has sold the division for $ 62 million in cash to a group led by its existing U.K.-based management team. Of the sale price, approximately $ 56 million was received upon closing and approximately $ 6 million is being deferred to the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The company said it will use the money to pay down debt, freeing up cash for capital expenditures.
“We are pleased to have reached an agreement to sell our corporate apparel business. The consummation of this transaction supports our previously stated strategy to focus on our core retail business in the U.S. and Canada while reducing debt,” said Tailored Brands president and chief executive officer Dinesh Lathi.
At the same time, the company updated its outlook for the second fiscal quarter. It now expects net sales in the range of $ 787 million to $ 789 million, GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of 64 cents to 66 cents and adjusted diluted EPS in the range of 78 cents to 80 cents, which is above the projections made on June 12 of

The Future of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Is Still Unclear

The future of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is still up in the air. But some people — even some former Angels — don’t seem to care. 
In fact, when asked about the show by a fan on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” model and actress Kate Upton, who is also a former Victoria’s Secret catalogue model, likened the whole affair to a “snooze fest.” 
“We’re sick of seeing the same body type,” Upton said. “You have to be body inclusive now. Every woman needs to be represented.” 
Upton doesn’t seem to be the only one bored by the Fashion Show. Viewership of the annual extravaganza — once considered one of the most sought-after events in the industry — has consistently fallen in recent years.

It didn’t help when Ed Razek, former chief marketing officer of L Brands, parent company to Victoria’s Secret, told Vogue magazine during last fall’s show in New York that “no one had any interest,” in seeing transgender or plus-size models in the fashion show. “Because the show is a fantasy.” 
Razek’s comments quickly caused a fury online. (He later apologized by way of social media.) 
But the damage was down. In an era of MeToo and body positivity,

Polo Creating Sustainable Uniforms for U.S. Open

Polo Ralph Lauren is mixing it up a bit for the U.S. Open Tennis tournament this year.
The brand, which has been the official outfitter of the tournament since 2005, has reimagined the ball person uniforms it creates to be made from recycled materials. This is another indicator of the company’s push toward sustainability, which includes using 170 million recycled plastic bottles in its products and packaging by 2025 and convert the use of virgin poly-fiber to recycled poly-fiber throughout its supply chain by 2025.
The 2019 U.S. Open Ball Person’s uniform — a Polo shirt, short or skort — will be made from yarn derived from seven recycled plastic bottles and the fabric will have performance features such as stretch and moisture-wicking properties.
In addition, Polo Ralph Lauren will be collecting plastic tennis ball cans in partnership with Wilson at this year’s tournament and they will be made into the fabric for the 2020 Ball Person uniform. Over the course of the tournament, the company expects approximately 12,000 cans will be collected and recycled.
In addition to the official uniforms for the ball people, the company has created a collection of off-court styles inspired by the Polo Sport brand from the Nineties. The

Kit Kemp Plants a ‘Secret Garden’ at Bergdorf Goodman

Design specialist and Firmdale Hotels co-owner Kit Kemp is getting more settled in at Bergdorf Goodman. Building on the success of the “World of Kit Kemp” pop-up there earlier this year, the creative has imagined a “Secret Garden” vignette in a corridor on the retailer’s seventh floor. As of Aug. 18, a selection of her wallpaper with Andrew Martin, home accessories, tableware and other select items will be sold.
With the help of New York florist Lewis Miller Design, Kemp wants shoppers to be seeing green — literally — thanks to real trees and other greenery. Secret Garden is her latest installment for the luxury retailer, having had a pop-up that covered a bedroom, a drawing room and dining room from April until now. As part of the store’s English Country Manor, the Secret Garden gives way with two stone dogs garlanded with flowers, Kemp said. For a treelike effect, there are fabrics and wallpapers including “Racine,” which was inspired by French botanical posters from the Fifties. A shell table, a mosaic bird bath, custom chairs in neutral-colored felts with appliqué of florals and plants, a little pull-up stool, a collection of bird boxes and African lamps made with hundreds of

Celine Teases New Scents by Hedi Slimane

GREAT EXPECTATIONS: The first perfume project under Hedi Slimane at Celine was teased on Instagram on Sunday. The French fashion house wrote in a post that “La Collection Celine Haute Parfumerie” was making its debut, with a cryptic photo of what resembles a grooved, sculptural metallic mold in three parts.

A post shared by CELINE (@celine) on Aug 18, 2019 at 2:41am PDT

It’s been some time since Celine has introduced a perfume. Interparfums held the brand’s fragrance license between 2000 and 2011, before it was taken back in-house by the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned label, which has not launched a scent since.
Slimane is no stranger to fragrance. While fashioning men’s wear for Dior Homme, the creative director in 2004, for instance, worked on a trio of scents. The colognes he conjured up marked the first since Christian Dior was founded in 1947, and were made to evoke French perfumes of yore.
“Sometimes extreme classicism makes more sense than making something else, and it sometimes feels more contemporary,” Slimane told WWD during an exclusive preview at the time. “I

Selfridges Unveils New Generation Office Space

NEW HUB: After a long and ambitious renovation project of its accessories and men’s wear departments, Selfridges is now applying its flair for creative architecture and experiences to its executive, buying and merchandising offices, located on Duke Street, next to its London store.
For the refurbishment project, the British retailer appointed architect Alex Cochrane, a longtime collaborator, to transform the department store’s 19,700-square-foot head office — a process that took up to two years to complete.
The aim was to create a more creative and collaborative workspace environment, as well as incorporate sustainable design elements. Cue pink glass telephone booths, bright red box seats in a dedicated table tennis area and glossy green or magenta shelves. The space also features materials such as renewable wood paneling and solar panels to further the retailer’s commitment to sustainability.
Earlier this year, the retailer also announced plans to ban exotic skins from its store as part of its sustainability efforts.
It’s also ditching assigned work spaces in favor of open-plan workrooms in its buying and merchandizing area — dubbed the Hub — in a bid to be more aligned to the nomadic nature of the buying team’s busy travel schedule.

Versace Provides Travel Kits for Turkish Airlines Business Class Intercontinental Travelers

VERSACE FRESHENS UP: Duty-free shopping in airports can be a blood sport for harried travelers who tend to fall into two camps — killing time or crunched for time.
Turkish Airlines travelers can skip the last-minute blitz for moisturizer, lip balm and other in-flight sundries, since the carrier will be providing them with travel kits from Versace or Mandarina Duck. Business-class passengers taking intercontinental flights will get the Versace assortment. Female fliers will find socks, earplugs, a sleep mask, warning stickers, Versace lip balm, hand lotion, facial mist and a hair clasp all contained in a zippered orange case. The men’s version is slightly different and is stowed away on a black case. To keep the pearly whites intact, there are travel-size Colgate toothpaste tubes as part of the deal.
Staying squeaky clean is truly in fashion, as evidenced by Naomi Campbell’s viral “airport routine” video, which was filmed on a Qatar Airways plane. More than 1.4 million people have watched the five-minute spot on her YouTube channel. The supermodel breaks out her pre-packed plastic gloves to scrub down her business class surroundings, “cleaning anything that you touch or could possibly touch.”

Jamie Foxx and Sylvester Stallone’s Daughters, Corinne and Sistine, Costar in “47 Meters Down: Uncaged”

“I don’t think I fully thought it through,” said Corinne Foxx, 25, of accepting a starring role in Johannes Roberts’ shark thriller “47 Meters Down: Uncaged,” out today. “The director asked me, ‘What’s your swimming ability like?’ I said, ‘It’s great, it’s wonderful,’ and then I got there, and I couldn’t even doggy paddle.”
“They told me I got the part on a Thursday, and by Sunday, I was on a plane,” she continued. She was given the part after another actress turned it down and learned to both swim and scuba dive in four days. “It’s survival. Either you swim or you don’t swim, so I had to figure it out. I don’t know what I was thinking, but it paid off.”
Along with being the daughters of well-established, respected actors, Jamie Foxx and Sylvester Stallone, Corinne and her costar Sistine Stallone, 21, have a number of other similarities.
They have both modeled, been Miss Golden Globe — the tradition that ended in 2017 of celebrity offspring assisting in handing out award trophies to winners — and now, they’re in their first feature film.

“You can see my house from here,” said L.A. native Este Haim on a summit of Montecito Heights overlooking Los Angeles on Wednesday night. Leave it to Eckhaus Latta to showcase someplace new, a part of town in Northeast L.A. — east of Echo Park — unfamiliar to most. “You can also see the high school I went to. This view doesn’t suck.”
The bicoastal brand, founded in New York City by Zoe Latta and Mike Eckhaus in 2011, was throwing an al fresco dinner party to celebrate their recent collaboration with Ugg.

She was a late-Ninties techno artist. When we’re on our way to a party or dinner, we like to put on music that helps inform the vibe of the night to come.”

For That Special Day: Karen Walker Creates Bridal Collection

Just as every bride has a story — or more likely 100 stories — designer Karen Walker wants to be part of that narrative with a new bridal collection.
The Auckland, New Zealand-based designer has created an assortment of wedding-day styles, after years of customers requesting bridal dresses or outfits. Until now, the timing never felt right, Walker said. But that did not deter many from buying various Karen Walker designs to wear for their big day. “But they had never been designed specifically for that intent,” she explained.
Now there are 12 bespoke dresses, four bespoke suits and two off-the-rack dresses “for those wanting to elope,” Walker said. Retail prices range from $ 950 to $ 3,500 and are sold through the new bridal shop in her Auckland boutique and online store. Bespoke shoppers can work directly with her team that includes patternmakers, tailors and other specialists in her atelier or via e-mail, FaceTime or other means. Fittings and creating toiles are all part of the package. Such procedures have been put to use for six international high-profile clients over the past 12 months. That roster included former First Lady Michelle Obama, who needed a suit for her “Becoming” book tour. Walker said,

The men’s fashion marketplace first partnered with the rapper at ComplexCon in 2018, and the follow-up, which will officially launch on Aug. 9, includes pieces from Gucci, Saint Laurent, Off-White, Burberry and Fear of God among others. It also includes custom basketball, hockey and football jerseys, and a concert-worn jacket from the Summer Sixteen Tour with Drake that reads “Them Boys Up To Something” across the sleeves and back in reference to “Jumpman,” their platinum-selling song from the “What a Time to Be Alive” mixtape.
The 50-plus pieces available in the sale have a potential value of $ 23,000.
“Whether it be low-end or high-end, we mix it in and blend it well,” said Future. “Because it’s not about what you wear or what you spend, it’s the person who’s wearing it. It’s how you put it together.”

Social Media Has a Lot to Say About Nars’ Phallic Lipstick Campaign

Nars is taking risqué marketing to the next level.
The 25-year-old beauty company, best known for its Orgasm blush — among other shade names that are sexual innuendos — has social media abuzz over its newest campaign.
Nars posted the raunchy video — which shows a nude lipstick melting into the phallic shape — to its Instagram account with the caption: “When the nudes keep you up all night.” Social media was quick to react, with many expressing their shock at the campaign.

DKNY, NFL Partner on Sport Collection

The NFL will be celebrating its 100th anniversary this season and DKNY is doing its part to help the league celebrate.
The brand is creating an exclusive DKNY Sport collection for women that will be co-branded with the logos of all 31 teams. The line offers street-style-worthy, feminine looks that were created as an alternative to the loose-fitting jerseys that have become de rigeur among fans.
This collection will offer puffer coats, sneaker dresses, classic leggings and cropped hoodies, all co-branded with the logos of the team.
Beginning in October, the line will be expanded to include sweatshirts, jackets and vests.
Prices range from $ 40 for T-shirts to $ 150 for outerwear.
The DKNY x NFL collection will be available beginning this month at Macy’s, select stadiums and on the DKNY, NFL and Fanatics web sites.
Earlier this year, DKNY offered a similar sports-inspired collection for Major League Baseball. That was part of a push by Fanatics, the largest global retailer of licensed sports merchandise, to focus on more-upscale brands.
The collection comes as a result of a licensing deal between DKNY and the NFL.

Men’s Trend Spring 2020: Man as Muse

A new model of masculinity was on display at the men’s runway shows for spring as designers tapped into today’s tectonic cultural shifts to offer softer, more fluid and gender-bending styles, including pearls and handbags for men. It all generated an artistic vibe, as seen here in a Comme des Garçons coat with pleated sleeves and shorts suit.

Baublebar to Launch Fine Jewelry on Site

Baublebar is expanding its reach into the world of fine jewelry.
The direct-to-consumer label will launch gold and diamond pieces on its web site Wednesday. Prices reflect the company’s lack of middlemen — starting at $ 55 for gold stud earrings and going up to $ 995 for a diamond-set signet ring.
Baublebar’s costume-jewelry designs largely retail for less than $ 50. The company decided to enter the world of fine after experiencing unforeseen success with the launch of its gold vermeil collection.
Baublebar expects the assortment to represent 20 percent of company sales within the next two years. Its debut collection is limited to rings and earrings, with streamlined hoop and stud shapes for earrings and simple, embellished bands for rings. Some more directional earrings take the shape of letters or safety pins.
Baublebar cofounder Daniella Yacobovsky-Fiala said their launch is strategic: “Our assortment is data-driven and our new collection reflects that. Over the past few years, we have seen the lines blurring as more people effortlessly mix fine and fashion jewelry together and choose to purchase fine jewelry for themselves.
“As a brand dedicated to giving our community a complete assortment of accessories that allow them to easily experiment with personal style, our fine collection is

Luxury Brands Are Running Fast With the Sneaker Trend

LONDON — Louis Vuitton was one of the highlights of the men’s spring 2020 season, with Virgil Abloh transforming the secluded Place Dauphine into a tourist destination with an ice cream truck, balloon artists and Eiffel Tower keychains. He also debuted the 508 High-Top LV Trainer — an Air Jordan-like model with cream lilac and blue suede finishing and red nylon laces. There was a new, unnamed running sneaker style on offer, too, and both were accessorized with plastic luggage tags, serving as a reminder of Vuitton’s heritage in travel.
Vuitton has been offering sneakers for a long time, but it was only after Abloh came on the scene that they became as desirable as a Keepall Bandoulière — at least to the streetwear community. Vuitton certainly needed to catch up, considering that Kering’s Balenciaga, Gucci and Alexander McQueen brands have been serving up hot sneakers constantly in recent seasons.
More sneakers than ever were spotted on the men’s spring runways — as well as on the street — even though many designers said the general trend is towards a more “dressed up” style, and away from streetwear. Sneaker designs ranged from collaborations such as Undercover x Nike; Ambush x Converse; Asics

Columbia Taps DJ and Artist Zedd to Release SH/FT Footwear

Columbia Sportswear is partnering with Grammy Award-winning DJ and producer Zedd on a new collection of footwear called SH/FT that is designed for nature hikes and city commutes.
SH/FT is comprised of a waterproof knitted mid-top sneaker, which is the hero style for the collection, along with a non-waterproof low-top sneaker, and collaboration mid-tops. The new range launches on Friday, and will be followed by a leather hiker boot and outdoor winter boot in late September.
“The goal is to become equally famous in apparel and footwear and have a deeper conversation in footwear,” said Peter Ruppe, Columbia Sportswear’s vice president of footwear. “Everybody believes there’s an emerging category here that’s different from where outdoor has been in the past.”
Ruppe explained that the SH/FT collection is targeted to a younger demographic that tends to wear running shoes or other footwear not suitable for hiking. The knit sneakers look like casual shoes for city walks, but feature a midsole with beading technology that took a few years to develop. According to Ethan Pochman, Columbia’s vice president of global brand marketing, “We don’t want any footwear fails on the trail. We want to deliver this ability to take them out of town and into

Model Georgia Fowler Lands in L.A. as Azzaro’s Wanted Girl

With 960,000 Instagram followers, 27-year-old model Georgia Fowler is on the verge of hitting the milestone million.
“Yes! Come on,” she said at 1 Hotel in Los Angeles, where she was promoting Azzaro’s Wanted Girl fragrance on Thursday night. She’s the face of the perfume and ambassador for the brand, which is reportedly in talks to be bought by L’Oréal from Groupe Clarins. “Follow me!”
Growing up between New Zealand and Australia, she started modeling locally at age 12. Then, at 16, she was signed to IMG Models and left home for New York City. She was able to easily adjust, she said, since much of her childhood was spent traveling with her family.
“My dad was working overseas, because he’s a professional golfer,” she shared. “So, he was on tour, and we were in a different city every week growing up.”
Today, she’s one of Victoria’s Secret’s most recognizable faces, walking the show –– now canceled –– for three years.
“It was disappointing,” she said of the fashion show’s cancelation. The model is also host of “Project Runway New Zealand.” “We had so much fun doing the show. So, we’ll see what happens.”
Victoria’s Secret has been under scrutiny this week after news broke that

Jeffrey Epstein Dies in Apparent Suicide

Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in an apparent suicide in his Manhattan jail cell on Saturday.
The convicted sex offender reportedly hung himself at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, according to NBC News. Epstein was transported to a nearby hospital where he reportedly went into cardiac arrest.
On July 6, Epstein was charged for one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors between 2002 and 2005. He was being held in the Manhattan prison awaiting his court date and was denied bail. If convicted, Epstein would have faced a maximum of 45 years in prison.
His death comes days after L Brands’ chairman, Leslie Wexner, claimed that the two had a falling out because Epstein misappropriated over $ 46 million from him and his family. The two were closely linked until the late aughts, with Epstein later taking ownership of Wexner’s Manhattan home on East 71st Street, the same residence that prosecutors demanded Epstein forfeit.

Flag & Anthem Names NFL Player Christian McCaffrey Brand Ambassador

Flag & Anthem has tapped NFL star Christian McCaffrey of the Carolina Panthers as its brand ambassador.
Previously, the men’s wear brand started by Azod Mohit and Brad Gartman has partnered with Ford Motors on a capsule collection and collaborated with country star Dierks Bentley, as well.
The partners seem to have been fated to work together. Gartman said he had followed McCaffrey’s career closely, going back to the athlete’s time at Stanford, where in 2015 he broke the NCAA record for all-purpose yards, was named Associated Press Player of the Year and was a runner-up for the Heisman Trophy. Meanwhile, McCaffrey said he shopped the brand and wore the clothes before shooting the campaign.
Gartman said McCaffrey is the “ideal core customer for the brand,” and they are in similar “emerging” stages, with McCaffrey starting his pro-football career in 2017, one year after Flag & Anthem launched. Gartman also described the partnership as “natural.”
The brand photographed its fall campaign in Colorado, which seems to have been a stroke of fate as well, considering that McCaffrey was born and raised in the state. While McCaffrey described the campaign shoot as “cool” and “easy,” Gartman expressed just how “natural” the shoot was.
“It was kind

Nick Graham Expands Into Sportswear, Swimwear

Nick Graham is creating a collection.
The designer and founder of the Joe Boxer brand will introduce sportswear and swimwear under the Nick Graham label for spring 2020 at the Project show in Las Vegas next week.
The sportswear collection is being called “Happy America” and is inspired by Fifties Miami Beach with a healthy dose of Graham’s signature ironic sense of humor. Rayon shirts, for example, are offered in pastel colors and feature prints such as a parrot smoking a pipe and wearing fedora and toucans with headphones and a flamingo with a large dollar sign.
“They’re not so subtle, but then I’ve never been subtle,” the designer said with a laugh.
He said he was inspired by a time when America “was simpler and not so complicated. I was looking at some imagery from that era, and the style seemed to match the optimism of the day. I wanted to try to capture that feeling.”
The collection includes unstructured sport coats, slim five-pocket jeans and chinos in stretch twill and multicolor cotton polos. The swimwear is offered in a variety of conversational prints that coordinate with the rayon shirts to create a cabana set look. Printed baseball caps and fedoras with novelty headbands

Is This Kylie Jenner’s Dress for a ‘Special Occasion?’

MI CASA SU CASA: Is it a wind-up or a wedding? No one knows for sure, but beauty mogul Kylie Jenner certainly has social media abuzz about her Italian escapades.
TMZ broke the news that what looked like a wedding dress was stowed away, when the beauty billionaire and Travis Scott boarded a private jet bound for “Bel Paese.” The fact that their toddler Stormi wasn’t the only member of their extended family who was along for the ride only ratcheted up the rumor mill. Kris Jenner, Corey Gamble, Scott Disick and Sofia Richie have also been photographed on various strolls in Italy.
Jenner jump-started the celebration of her 22nd birthday two days early on Thursday night with Scott over dinner, complete with a candles-ablaze birthday cake and what looked like a serragghia serenade. Italian tradition calls for a groom to serenade his bride-to-be with musicians from beneath the balcony or window on the night before her wedding. Chalk that up to coincidence. The “Sicko Mode” singer did not appear to be sharing his talents at the dinner table in Capri.
The feathery white dress that set the rumor mill in motion was carried in a white Saks Fifth Avenue garment bag. Staffers at

The Tie Bar is relocating its New York store and will open a flagship next week.
The 1,400-square-foot store at 340 Madison Avenue is located near the pop-up-turned-permanent-store it has been operating at 400 Madison Avenue since 2017. The New York flagship will join the company’s stores in its hometown of Chicago as well as recently opened units in Boston, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia.
“New York continues to be one of our important markets,” said Allyson Lewis, chief executive officer. “As we’ve grown out of solely being an accessories brand, our stores have proven extremely effective showcasing first-hand all that The Tie Bar has to offer now. When it came time to launch the first flagship outside of our hometown, it was a no-brainer that it would be in New York.”
The store will sport a new design concept that features custom wood fixtures, an outfit-building station and a wedding shop. “Our new store floor plan has been totally reimagined to create an experience that allows our customers to shop from head-to-toe,” Lewis added. “Whether mixing and matching on their own, or working with one of our in-house stylists, we’ve created a space that’s been tailored exactly to our customer’s full style needs.”

DIGITAL DOWNLOAD: How DBA Fosters Successful Influencer Brands — Offline

A decade ago, influencer marketing didn’t exist. Now, it’s a burgeoning economy — one largely dominated by women.
Digital Brand Architects knows this economy well. In fact, it helped propel it. The nine-year-old digital talent management agency represents about 170 influencers, many of whom fall within the fashion and beauty categories, and is behind major influencer-retail partnerships such as Arielle Charnas of Something Navy and Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam, both of whom launched clothing collections at Nordstrom.
Engel’s Gal Meets Glam Collection, which launched at 40 Nordstrom doors in April 2018, is said to have done $ 20 million at retail, including direct-to-consumer, last year. It is currently on track to do $ 35 million at retail in 2019, according to industry sources.
Nordstrom declined to comment.
“Our clients drive sales,” said Raina Penchansky, DBA’s chief executive officer. “Period, the end.”
DBA’s influencers are not only experts in content creation, they know how to impact brands’ bottom lines. Engel, Charnas, Rachel Parcell, Aimee Song and Camila Coelho are among DBA’s top sales-drivers. Song and Coelho recently launched their own labels with Revolve — deals that were brokered by Digital Brand Products, DBA’s four-year-old sister agency.

The social media backlash has been swift toward real estate developer Stephen Ross.
The developer behind Hudson Yards, Ross is facing criticism from celebrities and fashion designers over news that he is reportedly hosting a fundraiser for President Donald Trump at his Hamptons home on Friday. According to The Washington Post, tickets for the fundraiser range from $ 100,000 to $ 250,000.
Ross is also the chairman of real estate company, Related Cos., which owns SoulCycle and its parent company, Equinox, and is the owner of the Miami Dolphins. Many celebrities, including Chrissy Teigen, Sophia Bush and Billy Eichner, have taken to Twitter to express their outrage over Ross’ fundraiser, taking aim at his many companies.

Bridget Foley’s Diary: InStyle Marks a Milestone

The Big 2-5. With its September print issue, InStyle magazine celebrates its 25th anniversary. The magazine launched just as fashion was in the early throes of its passionate love affair with celebrities of the Hollywood sort, and well into the transition from supermodel to celebrity covers that would ultimately rule unchallenged until social media provided the classic model genre a platform for self-reinvention. InStyle’s maiden raison d’être was to cover and celebrate celebrity culture, and in homage to that heritage, celebrity is a key element of the anniversary tome. This print issue hits newsstands on Aug. 16, with stories posting throughout August.
Now, at a fractured time in the culture and fashion, the issue, via its two major fashion features, provides a delightful reminder of fashion’s purpose at its most basic level — to bring joy while helping women realize their most beautiful selves. And if along the way glam celebrities offer some inspiration, all the better. The cover story features the divine Julianne Moore in a smart interview with Helena Christensen. Moore wears fashion from the decade of InStyle’s birth, the Nineties, in a shoot by Phil Poynter styled by Karla Welch. The other major piece, written by Eric Wilson,

DXL CEO Sees Growth in Engaging Customers, Expanding Wholesale

When the Destination XL annual shareholders meeting opens on Thursday, there will be a different face at the podium: Harvey Kanter, the company’s new president and chief executive officer.
Kanter, whose résumé includes Blue Nile, Moosejaw Mountaineering, Eddie Bauer and Backcountry Travel Inc., was named to the top post at the country’s largest big and tall men’s retailer in February. He succeeded David Levin, who revealed in March 2018 that he would retire from the company at the end of the year after an 18-year run. It took the company nearly a year, and two search firms, before the board selected Kanter.
In the past six months, Kanter has immersed himself in the company’s culture and gotten a crash course in this highly specialized business. He started out as an adviser, working with Levin, who had stayed on as interim ceo, until April 1. But now that his feet are firmly planted on the ground at the retailer’s headquarters in Canton, Mass., Kanter has his game plan in place for the 225 DXL full-price and outlet stores in the U.S. and Canada. The company also operates around 100 Casual Male and Rochester Clothing stores, but both those nameplates are being phased out

Rimowa Links With MTA on Branded MetroCards

Rimowa is headed underground. The high-end luggage brand has linked with the Metropolitan Transit Authority to issue branded MetroCards within New York City’s subway system.
Some 250,000 MetroCards featuring the label’s signature corrugated-surface suitcases will be available at select subway stations across Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Rimowa’s chief executive officer Alexandre Arnault said the brand, “Continues to innovate and partner with like-minded people to showcase the creativity and heritage of the brand.
“Through our partnership with the MTA, Rimowa-branded MetroCards will appear all throughout the city. New York is a city our brand has a strong tie with, and we are excited for the MetroCard and the commuters of New York to embody our campaign’s concept that, ‘No one builds a legacy by standing still.’”
The move is in line with Arnault’s marketing vision for Rimowa — the first LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton subsidiary to take a firm stance against print advertising. The label has heavily invested in digital platforms while also focusing on interactive, outdoor advertisements in global metro areas.

Bridget Foley’s Diary: The Message Walmart Could Send

A thin marigold banner atop the homepage bears a somber message: Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the events in El Paso. See our statement.
One click on walmart.com takes you there. We are in shock over the tragic events at the Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso, where Walmart store #2201 and Sam’s Club #6502 are located. We’re praying for the victims, the community and our associates, as well as the first responders who are on the scene. We’re working closely with law enforcement and will update as appropriate. 
Following the shootings in El Paso, Tex., and Dayton, Ohio — and let’s not forget the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Gilroy, Calif., where “only” three people were murdered — anyone who believes in God has surely said a prayer for the dead; the injured; their loved ones; their communities — specifically, the Hispanic community that was so perversely targeted in El Paso; the first responders, and maybe even for the villains and potential future villains who, for whatever reason, are filled with the hate and rage that leads them to commit such atrocities. But prayers without action are at best hollow and at worst hypocritical.
Today, you can walk into about

Depop Takes Over Selfridges With a Pop-up Store

LONDON — Depop is giving its online vendors an off-line space in Selfridges.
The vintage finds marketplace has taken over space in the department store’s Designer Studio, on the third floor. The pop-up will run for three months, until the end of October.
Products have been hung on a moving rail, similar to those found at the dry cleaners to mimic the look and feel of an online marketplace. The rotating rail can be turned on and off with a switch controlled by the customer.
“It was interesting to bring our marketplace — which is so diverse, broad, scrapping and thrifty — into an elegant destination. So we came up with this idea that we thought was a nice representation of Depop, because it is this never-ending cycle of unique items,” said Peter Semple, chief marketing officer of Depop.
At the moment, merchandise on the rail includes a diamond-patterned vintage pair of pants from Versace, graphic Marily Manson and Public Enemy shirts and limited-edition sneakers from Nike from three online stores that sell to Depop — @NS_Shop, @Ladskazeem and @Archive_Dna.
Sellers will rotate out every week to give as many members of the Depop community as possible a chance to showcase their products. “The whole thing

Iman to Receive Franca Sozzani Award in Venice

IN HER HONOR: Iman will be the third recipient of the Franca Sozzani Award, which recognizes women who stand out for their artistic careers and their social commitment.
Starting her career as a pioneering model in 1975, Iman has developed skin-care collections designed for women with skin of color and has been involved in humanitarian work for The Children’s Defense Fund, Action Against Hunger and the Raise Hope For Congo campaign. In 2010, she was recognized with the CFDA’s Fashion Icon Award.

The Franca Sozzani Award was established by the family of the late Vogue Italia editor in chief Franca Sozzani.
Salma Hayek was the second recipient last year, following Julianne Moore in 2017.
The event will be held on Aug. 27, ahead of the 76th edition of the Venice International Film Festival, running Aug. 28 to Sept. 7. The ceremony will take place at Sozzani’s favorite Belmond Hotel Cipriani, a five-star hotel on Venice’s Giudecca island, and it will be hosted by Sozzani’s son, photographer and film director Francesco Carrozzini, who established the award, and his wife Bee, daughter of Anna Wintour.
“Iman’s work has disrupted the fashion industry in a way similar to Franca’s: bold, innovative and inclusive,” said Carrozzini. “Using her platform

Sixties Model and Muse Peggy Moffitt Venturing Into Licensing

Sixties-era model and muse Peggy Moffitt, known for her distinctive five-point Vidal Sassoon haircut, harlequin eye makeup and for her collaboration with the late L.A. designer Rudi Gernreich, is poised to become her own brand.

Sage Licensing has revealed the development of a licensing program in fashion apparel and accessories based on the famed model, who made waves when she posed in Gernreich’s topless monokini in 1964. The deal is being spearheaded by the group’s president Bruce Giuliano, who has worked with Hello Kitty and Paul Frank, among other creative properties.

A native of Los Angeles, Moffitt studied acting, which led to roles in “Blow-up” and other films, and dance, which influenced her taste in clothing and her balletic style of modeling — and caught the eye of Gernreich, known for his avant-garde, body-con style. Her late husband, photographer William Claxton, also contributed to her legacy with his iconic Sixties images of the model.

Moffitt, 79, who lives in the Hollywood Hills, has been ill in recent months, and has not appeared publicly. The new brand-licensing program coincides with her archival images and clothing being showcased in the “Rudi Gernreich: Fearless Fashion” exhibition on view at L.A.’s Skirball Cultural Center.

Rodarte Presents Eighties-Themed Capsule Collection at L.A. Roller Disco Party

It was an Eighties-themed night seemingly off the set of “Stranger Things” inside Milk Studios on Thursday in Los Angeles, where Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy showcased a limited-edition capsule collection.
“We wanted something that spoke to nostalgia a little bit, but also felt of-the-moment,” shared Laura of the event, a collaboration with IMG’s Made and Mastercard.
Neon lights filled the room, which featured a see-now-buy-now Fred Segal Sunset pop-up in the style of a romanticized teenage bedroom. The line of T-shirts, selling for $ 150 each, and sweatshirts for $ 280 — with “Radarte” written across the front — is a collaboration with artist Mari Eastman and sold exclusively at the retail store starting today until Aug. 14.
“Made approached us and said that they were going to do a series of projects where they want you to unite with an artist,” said Laura prior to the presentation, which had models strutting around a makeshift roller-skating rink. “We immediately thought, ‘Oh, this is an amazing opportunity to work with an artist that we admire,’ and we’ve known Mari for years. She’s an amazing painter and professor. Everything was very organic, and it was just a step-by-step process of doing something that was heartfelt

Saturdays NYC Creates Line for 10th Anniversary

Saturdays NYC has ridden a wave of momentum for the past decade that has resulted in nine stores around the world as well as a popular wholesale collection.
So to celebrate its 10th anniversary, the New York-based company has created a special collection for fall that is intended to speak to its “transition, movement and memories” since its founding in 2009.
Classic Saturdays styles such as the Everyday Classic Sweater and the Miguel Sweater have been updated with the use of speckled yarn in saffron, green and navy and high-end fabrics such as lambswool. The William Moleskin Parka has been elevated with the addition of a M-51 style fishtail and Royal Air Force-style pockets, and the Harrison Cord Jacket and the Coney Cord Pant were each hand-splattered with bleach, creating one-of-a-kind patterns. Special commemorative prints were also created and will be used on shirts, swim trunks and shorts. A special “10” label has been used on all printed tops and outerwear.
The fall collection also features a 10th anniversary bag collaboration with Porter-Yoshida that will be available in the U.S, Japan and Australia, and sunglasses by Japanese eyewear brand Eyevol for the U.S and Japanese markets.
The 10th anniversary collection will be available at Saturdays

Peabody Essex Museum Plans to Unveil Iris and Carl Apfel Gallery

After enjoying her 98th birthday at the end of this month, Iris Apfel can keep the celebration going next month at the Peabody Essex Museum’s unveiling of the Iris and Carl Apfel gallery.
The artist, designer and model is expected at PEM’s Sept. 21 gala, which will give guests a chance to see her namesake fashion and design-focused space showcasing 15 of Apfel’s ensembles for the occasion. The gallery is part of a 40,000-square-foot, $ 150 million wing that has been designed by Ennead Architects of New York. The official ribbon-cutting is set for Sept. 28 at the Salem, Mass., museum.
Like many museums and cultural institutions around the globe, PEM is ramping up its fashion quota. Apfel has been pitching in for 10 years, since the “Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel” exhibition had a successful run. In addition to 90 complete ensembles, Apfel has bestowed 1,000 separates and her late husband’s wardrobe.
Patrons may recognize Apfel’s name, likeness or designs from “Iris,” the 2014 documentary about her life; the Barbie Collector Styled doll by her, various books or modeling campaigns for Kate Spade. The noctogenerian also has signature accessories and a furniture collection. Petra Slinkard, the museum’s Nancy B. Putnam

Analyzing the Sneaker Resale Race

The sneaker wars are more intense than ever, fueled by the rise of sneaker culture due to social media, designer and celebrity collaborations and limited product runs that have created massive demand and hype surrounding said product. It’s forced the industry — not only activewear megabrands, but also luxury fashion houses and retailers — to update their footwear strategies to produce or sell more sneakers.
And in the midst of that battle, another question arises: Who will win the resale market?
StockX, Goat and Stadium Goods — three sneaker resale companies that have captured the attention of the global fashion industry — are playing a significant role in the world’s newfound interest and infatuation with sneakers. Now, with backing from investors, the race is entering a new phase, one that had been unimaginable for the sneaker resale and collecting world, which had long been a niche market for only sneakerheads.
Each company has a different business model. StockX emulates the stock market model, with real-time resale price updates for buyers to get the best deal and traders to see how valuable their collections are. Goat focuses on digital commerce and entered retail with its acquisition and merger of consignment shop Flight Club. Stadium

GOING OFF-LINE: The Modist, the Dubai-based e-commerce retailer that specializes in modest clothing, is set to open its first physical pop-up in Europe at the U.K.’s luxury outlet Bicester Village.
The pop-up, which will be open from Aug. 12 to Sept. 24, will stock a mix of the retailer’s in-house label Layeur and an edit of the luxury brands it carries on its site, such as Roksanda, Osman and Mary Katrantzou.
“Ghizlan Guenez’s game-changing vision has captured the attention of a generation with women across the globe embracing the elegance of dressing modestly. The pop-up will allow our international guests the chance to discover The Modist’s unique edit,” said Desirée Bollier, chair and chief merchant at Value Retail Management, which operates the Bicester Village Shopping Collection.
This is the first time Bicester Village has brought in an online retailer to its popular outlet center in Oxfordshire. The Modist is joining the likes of Aquazzura, Delpozo and skin-care label Omorovicza, which have all set up shop at Bicester this summer.
The luxury e-tailer, which was launched by Guenez in 2017, has aimed to leverage the growth potential of modest clothing and has attracted investors such as the specialist investment company Vaultier7, Farfetch, Nicola Bulgari and

Oscar de la Renta, Saks Fifth Avenue Partner to Mark Save Lake Tahoe’s 50th Anniversary

When models walked the runway at the League to Save Lake Tahoe’s fund-raiser in 1969, they were barefoot on a beach.
“It was raw,” said Saks Fifth Avenue’s president Marc Metrick, of the original setting. “It was fashion at its core.”
Held at a Rubicon Bay beach house on the lake, the function began as a collaboration between the late Bill Blass and Saks Fifth Avenue’s James J. Ludwig, a vice president and general manager of the retailer’s San Francisco branch at the time. Along with Eugene Levin, owner of Maurice Rentner (Blass was its designer), they took notice of Bay Area customers vacationing in Lake Tahoe for the summer and relocated their habitual fall presentation, usually held in August, to the Sierra Nevada area.
“It moved from a fashion show with boxed lunches — literally, there were boxed picnic lunches — to an involved community event,” continued Metrick.
What started as an intimate show has evolved into a significant production that has raised $ 1 million this year and a total of more than $ 18 million for programs dedicated to the protection and preservation of the Lake Tahoe Basin. The affair, which now showcases Oscar de la Renta designs, celebrates its 50th anniversary this weekend.

EXCLUSIVE: Dior to Stage Runway Show for Men’s Pre-fall in Miami

THE ART OF TRAVEL: Kim Jones is deepening his ties to the art world. The designer plans to show his Dior pre-fall men’s wear collection in Miami on Dec. 3.
Jones staged his first traveling men’s show last year with a men’s pre-fall runway display in Tokyo, featuring a monumental sculpture by Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama. He will hit Miami two days before the start of Art Basel Miami Beach, one of the highlights of the year for art collectors and fashion brands alike.
With collaborations with Kaws, Raymond Pettibon and Daniel Arsham under his belt, it’s highly likely that Jones will tap another artist to work on the show.
“When I do these collections, I always think about what’s going to go in the exhibitions about Dior or Vuitton, whenever, in 50 years’ time, so it’s kind of important to have things that can create a legacy for the brand further along the line,” he told WWD recently.
The choice of location reflects not just Dior’s long-term relationship with the U.S., but also the strategic importance of the U.S. market, which accounted for 23 percent of sales at parent company LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton in the first half of 2019.

Danielle Bernstein, Onia Make It Official With Licensing Deal

Danielle Bernstein and Onia have inked a new deal.
The influencer and swimwear brand have previously partnered on four swimwear collections, the latest of which sold $ 1 million worth of product in just three hours. The two are teaming once more, this time for a licensing deal that will make Onia the official production partner for Bernstein’s newly launched Shop We Wore What.
Shop We Wore What brings Bernstein’s line of overalls, called SSO, and future fashion collections under one roof — URL, rather. With Onia as her partner, Bernstein plans to mass produce her current and future fashion lines and sell them wholesale to her retail partners, which include Intermix, Revolve and Nordstrom.
“Onia has proven to be a dream production partner,” Bernstein said. “They have the same values as me when it comes to quality and fit and focusing on bringing a quality product at an affordable price point for our customers.”

With Onia as her production partner, Danielle Bernstein plans to expand her SSO overalls brand to other categories, starting with swim.

Caruso Opens Showroom in New York to Build Brand in U.S.

Caruso has set its sights on the American market.
The Milan-based men’s brand has opened a permanent showroom in Midtown Manhattan and is meeting with specialty and department stores during men’s market this week as it strives to regain a foothold in the U.S.
Spearheading the move is Marco Angeloni, the eldest son of former Brioni chief Umberto Angeloni, who remains an “active shareholder” in the business, according to his son.
Caruso is now majority-owned by Fosun, the company’s Chinese partner since 2013. In 2017, when Fosun purchased the controlling stake from Aplomb Srl, Umberto Angeloni’s holding company with Ruggero Magnoni, Marco Angeloni was elevated to chief executive officer from chief operating officer.
Marco Angeloni, who has also worked at Bain & Co., said his father launched the fashion brand a decade ago and opened flagships in both Milan and New York City. Both those stores have since closed and Umberto Angeloni stepped down as ceo when Fosun became the majority owner. Gone, too, are the brand’s trademark mannequins with handlebar mustaches intended to be reminiscent of its namesake, the singer Enrico Caruso.

What hasn’t changed, however, is the brand’s quality manufacturing of tailored clothing and upscale sportswear at an affordable price. The collection

Calvin Klein Inc. Stands By A$AP Rocky as He Stands Trial in Stockholm

DIVIDED OPINIONS: A$ AP Rocky is at ease in the fashion crowd, thanks to a series of collaborations, modeling and front-row appearances through the years.
The Grammy winner, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, pleaded not guilty to assault charges at the first day of his trial in Sweden on Tuesday, claiming that he acted in self-defense in a June 30 altercation in Stockholm. He has been held in Sweden since July 3 after being arrested along with two members of his entourage. The musician has reportedly been accused of punching, kicking and hitting the plaintiff, Mustafa Jafari, with a bottle.
His arrest has led to political sparring, with President Trump calling for his release through a few different medium since a phone call to Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Löfven last week. That appeal did not win points with Swedish politicians. Earlier this week Sweden’s former Prime Minister Carl Bildt tweeted his Washington Post op-ed that noted, “I was Sweden’s prime minister and no, Mr. Trump, I could not have freed A$ AP Rocky either.”
Robert C. O’Brien, U.S. special presidential envoy for Hostage Affairs, traveled to Stockholm to attend the trial, reportedly at Trump’s request.

Micaela Erlanger Signs On to Promote Platinum Guild

Celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger has been named official ambassador for Platinum Guild International USA, a marketing board that supports the platinum jewelry industry.
Erlanger — stylist for Meryl Streep, Lupita Nyong’o, Shailene Woodley and Diane Kruger and who last year released a book dedicated to accessorizing — will also be the face of the guild’s Platinum Born jewelry collection. She will make personal appearances and will feature in marketing materials related to the promotion of platinum jewelry.
“I’m passionate about accessorizing, I wrote a book last year about the topic,” Erlanger said of her decision to sign on with the platinum guild. “I think jewelry and accessories really represent your personality and jewelry is such a key component of self-expression and transforming one’s style.”
Erlanger recently became engaged, an occasion that she and her new fiancé marked with a platinum ring.
“Micaela is known for providing a fresh perspective on styling and turning her clients into fashion icons, so she will undoubtedly inspire women everywhere with her accessory advice. Plus, she has an authentic passion for the metal platinum, so it is a perfect pairing,” said Platinum Guild International USA president Jenny Luker.

Bristol Studio Offers Its Spin on Business Casual

Bristol Studio is showing itself to have quite the range with the Los Angeles label’s latest capsule.
The newest collection from the Los Angeles men’s line, which draws inspiration from founder and creative director Luke Tadashi’s love for basketball, has released its take on business casual. It’s good timing as much of the conversation around men’s is now focused on suiting and more tailored looks.
Bristol first previewed the line at the recently ended ComplexCon in Chicago and has now officially released it to the broader market.
“The reception at ComplexCon was strong,” Tadashi said. “People were definitely excited by the concept and curious as to how the concept came to life. As with any collection or project we do, it takes some explaining, so I would often explain the concept in great detail and from there they got even more stoked about the product because they understood the reason why it exists. I think the reversability factor is also important to note because that was something people always responded with awe to.”

Rhude’s Rhuigi Villaseñor Celebrates First Puma Collaboration at Kith in L.A.

Off the heels of Rhude’s Paris Fashion Week debut last month, Los Angeles-based designer Rhuigi Villaseñor commemorated his upcoming collaboration with Puma by throwing a party at Kith on Saturday evening.
“I wanted to celebrate silhouettes that already existed, but amplify that and bring it to an audience that doesn’t necessarily understand the heritage of Puma, while incorporating my own twist,” said Villaseñor in a sit-down with Kith’s Ronnie Fieg inside the Los Angeles location of the trendy retail store on Sunset Boulevard. “I’m in a space where I feel like I can concur that. It’s for the new age.”
In front of an audience that included singer Miguel and former New York Giants player Victor Cruz, Villaseñor shared that he wasn’t initially sold on the idea of working with the sportswear company. A conversation with Puma’s global director of brand and marketing, Adam Petrick, changed his mind.
“It was about­­ –– just life and what’s happening in society, and I felt that he took a stand,” said Villaseñor. “It’s important to take a stand…We talked about gun violence and different things that I personally care about…I thought it was larger than just a partnership of products. It’s about ethics.”

Former Victoria’s Secret CEO Is Helping Lingerie Start-up Harper Wilde Grow

Harper Wilde is getting a new bra⁠ — two actually. And former Victoria’s Secret chief executive officer Sharen Turney is helping make sure the lingerie brand keeps growing. 
The Los Angeles-based start-up⁠ — which previously sold just three styles of underwire bras, some with catchy quotes on the side like “Lift Up the Ladies” ⁠— is expanding its offerings to include sports bras and bralettes. 
“We really want to be able to support her through everything,” cofounder Jenna Kerner told WWD. “We want to be all of the basics, all of her foundations. But instead of just staying in typical bras, we really wanted to expand and cover her from 5 a.m. when she’s working out, to her full day of work, and into her weekend, lounging in her bralettes.” 

The pocket in the back of Harper Wilde’s new sports bras is meant to hold small things like keys or a cell phone.

Jordan Brand Signs Zion Williamson

Zion Williamson, the first overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft by the New Orleans Pelicans, has signed with Jordan Brand. On Tuesday, Nike revealed the signing, which adds the former Duke University star to the brand’s roster of athletes that includes NBA stars Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, and recent NBA and WNBA signees Jayson Tatum, Rui Hachimura, Asia Durr and Kia Nurse. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of the Jordan Brand family,” Williamson said in a statement. “Since I was a kid, I dreamed of making it to the league and having the type of impact on the game Michael Jordan had and continues to have today. He was one of those special athletes I looked up to, and I really can’t express how happy and excited I am for this journey.”
Williamson was born in North Carolina in 2000, one year before Michael Jordan made his return to the NBA with the Washington Wizards. Many sports analysts expect a great professional career from the young prospect given his short-lived college career that drew loads of attention and endless Instagram and YouTube postings of his acrobatic play.

Sander Lak of Sies Marjan Makes Whirlwind Stop in Chicago

Sander Lak’s secret to juggling a nonstop schedule? Time management, but also, “a Diet Coke, a piece of chocolate and some licorice.” “It’s like a push and pull I have to do this but I also have to do 50 other things that are equally important,” said Lak, the designer behind the New York-based Sies Marjan. “It’s literally nonstop. It’s never one thing. It’s always 50 things at one time.”
The designer jetted to Chicago to host a cocktail reception Friday evening at The Gwen for 10 of Nordstrom’s best customers, top-level members of Nordy Club, the retailer’s loyalty program. The cocktail was followed by a fashion show at Nordstrom Michigan Avenue, showcasing 12 looks from the collection.
Lak wanted to spend the weekend in the Windy City, doing touristy stuff, like the architecture boat tours, but due to his busy schedule, that will have to wait until a trip planned for September.
“I have to split my time, not only my time, but my energy,” said Lak, whose current to-do list includes working on the women’s show in September, women’s shoes, the women’s collection for December, men’s collection for January, women’s show in February, collaborations and marketing. “I have an amazing team

You can’t always get what you want, but can get what you need — and them some — at the Rolling Stones retail experience at Bergdorf Goodman.
While the Rolling Stones might not seem like an obvious brand partner for Bergdorf’s, the British band’s red and black tongue and lips logo looms large on the facade of the men’s store, where the concept, featuring limited-edition collections for the band’s fans, will operate through Aug. 13. The pop-up retail experience will then travel with the Rolling Stones’ “No Filter” tour to Pasadena and Miami, where there will be follow-up installations at Maxfield in Los Angeles and Alchemist in Miami.
Bravado, Universal Music Group’s merchandise and brand management company, partnered with Bergdorf’s to create the concept. The pop-up has a strong fashion pedigree. Bergdorf’s tapped Sarah Andelman, cofounder of Colette, the now-defunct Parisian retailer, who culled resources through her consulting and curating company, Just an Idea. Andelman assembled a collection of disparate brands, united by their affinity for the Rolling Stones.
Visitors to the third floor of the men’s store will see two larger-than-life 8-foot-tall, 600-pound tongues that celebrate the Rolling Stones’ return to the U.S. after the European and U.K. No Filter tour closed

Wolk Morais Collection 8 Film Uses Old Hollywood Inspiration, New Hollywood Models

“Our favorite look is not here because it’s with Cate Blanchett,” says Brian Wolk during a walk-through of his new Wolk Morais collection designed with Claude Morais, at the duo’s Hollywood bungalow home-studio.
The designers’ love affair with Los Angeles continues with their eighth collection — spring 2020 — debuting in a short film format, and inspired by a mood board full of old Hollywood screen and wardrobe test images starring Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Sharon Tate, Marlon Brando and more.
“We’ve been using Los Angeles as our muse, backdrop and scenic inspiration and we felt it was time to speak the language of the city,” says Wolk, referencing previous collections, one shown at Hollywood’s historic Yamashiro Japanese restaurant, another inspired by California’s mid-century “California Cool” art movement, another by its private school-going “teenage bourgeoisie.” “Also, it was really fun to cast…we got to call all of our crazy eccentric friends and get them to participate,” he said of the short film’s lineup of Lydia Hearst, Moon Unit Zappa, Aimee Garcia, Rebecca Walker, Monica Abanonu and more.
While many may associate Los Angeles fashion with streetwear or rock ‘n’ roll, the Wolk Morais designers have been zeroing in on tailoring as a specialty,

Danielle Brooks Debuts Baby Bump in Christian Siriano Gown at ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Premiere

Danielle Brooks used a high fashion moment to reveal her pregnancy.
The actress arrived at the New York premiere for the final season of Netflix’s hit show, “Orange Is the New Black,” Thursday wearing a custom Christian Siriano silver sequin gown with a white blazer and matching oversize hat. Brooks was joined by Siriano on the red carpet, who helped adjust the gown’s train for her photo op, where she gladly cradled her baby bump for the photographers.

Dyne Expands Into Eyewear, Working With Fila

Christopher Bevans continues to spread his wings.
The founder and designer of Dyne used his skills working with technical fabrics that he applied to interesting sports-inspired silhouettes as well as complementary products such as eyewear, socks and bags.

In his spring presentation in New York earlier this week, Bevans offered a tight collection of T-shirts, anoraks, track pants and sweats all updated through the use of creative fabrics.

Case in point was a technical T-shirt created through a sublimation technique with a graphic design that Bevans said was “inspired by geometry and motion” and a pattern informed by tropical birds. A hooded anorak and lightweight pants with a drawstring waist sported the same pattern.

Bevans also showcased a fabric innovation he discovered in Taiwan that used recycled paper for short-sleeve shirts. 

The spring collection, called “Colour Theory,” included baby French terry sweatshirts and a raincoat in a reflective camouflage pattern.

Bevans revealed he’s now working with Fila on a special capsule using wool — the designer is a Woolmark Award winner — and has also jumped into the eyewear market. His line of glasses had acetate or metal frames, some with snap-on lenses. The glasses will retail for $ 220 to $ 325 and will ship in a

Willy Chavarria Men’s Spring 2020

Sex, love, glamour and immigration.
All these hot topics, mixed with masculine queer culture, set the tone for Willy Chavarria’s runway return to New York — and boy, was he missed.
Known for his Chicano heritage vibes, Chavarria’s former stint in the Nineties, the creation of “The Love Garage,” a club in San Fransisco that embraced rave culture and gritty house music, served as one of the key components of his take on what minimalism can mean.
In this case, the usually big, oversize silhouette that has defined Chavarria took a sophisticated turn that still managed to maintain a tough edge.

The first portion of the show showcased standouts such as a black washed satin robe with matching shorts, along with an array of flared and high-waisted denim numbers, often paired with souvenir jackets or matching oversize boxy shirts. Quilted leather handbags, an item typically associated with high luxury, adorned most of the models, along with black and gold chains used as necklaces, belts and handbags, which provided a refined touch.
Part two featured a collaboration with athletic brand K-Swiss: a Nineties California Chicano tennis prep collection — oversize pastels in blue and pink with a bit of neon that enhanced sweatshirts, baggy shorts and

Rapper Dave East Releases Diamond Supply Co. Collaboration Ahead of First Single From ‘Survival,’ Out Friday

“I got it tatted on me, ‘born broke, die rich,’” said rising rapper Dave East, lifting his white T-shirt and revealing the cursive letters marked below his navel.
The 31-year-old New York City native, born David Brewster Jr., came from humble beginnings, becoming a Crip as a teen, and later, facing a stint in prison for selling drugs. Following the 2010 release of his first mixtape, “Change of Plans,” and the broader attention that followed with 2014’s “Black Rose,” he’s been forging a different path and is now signed to Def Jam Recordings. With 2.4 million Instagram followers and millions of YouTube hits on each music video (“Perfect,” featuring Chris Brown, has 34 million views alone), East is one to watch.
“Them four words mean everything to me,” he continued. It’s also the title of a 2016 collaborative EP with Philadelphia rapper Kur. “You’re born a certain way, but you don’t gotta die like that.”
All eyes were on the rising rapper as he held court on Fairfax Avenue, smoking a joint in front of Diamond Supply Co., where he celebrated his collaboration with the streetwear and skateboard label on Thursday evening.
Inside the shop, “born broke, die diamond” read the $ 36 T-shirts hanging

Simon G. Jewelry Sees Growth Potential in Men’s

Simon G. Jewelry began dabbling in the men’s business about five years ago. Now it’s ready to go full force with the launch of its first men’s collection this fall.
The Glendale, Calif.-based company, which got its start in bridal, first began exploring what it could offer men beyond wedding bands by testing larger bands, and saw strong interest.
“What we came to find several years ago is that a lot of the men who were purchasing jewelry for their soon-to-be wife and even some of the same-sex couples purchasing from us, were interested in bands as opposed to just engagement rings,” said vice president of marketing and communications Brooke Brinkman, who is overseeing the men’s division. “Our men’s band business took off. As we study SEO, we’re seeing there’s a great deal of search for men’s jewelry.”
The company, when looking at January through June of this year, saw unique sessions to the landing page for men’s rings jump 1,355.27 percent from the same period last year. Sessions for men’s bracelets were up 77.27 percent for the same six-month time frame this year compared with last year.

Barbra Streisand Dons Azeeza Khan on Tour

BARBRA STREISAND WEARS AZEEZA: When Barbra Streisand sang “The Way We Were” with Lionel Richie at Hyde Park in London earlier this month, the legendary singer wore an asymmetric black gown with a high-low cape and sweeping train.
The dress, which the performer styled as one-shoulder on stage, was not by her BFF and go-to designer Donna Karan — it was by the Chicago-based Azeeza Khan.
The ruffled silk gown is one of 25 looks Khan created for Streisand, including ready-to-wear, evening pieces and custom pieces created exclusively for the singer.
“The dress is a piece from my resort 2020 collection that I took to her even before releasing it to my retail partners/buyers,” Khan said. “As of today, she is the only one who has that piece. The dress is going to be called the Barbra, and it was such an honor to receive her blessing to give the gown her name.”
The Barbra will retail for $ 2,995.
Streisand is on tour with upcoming stops at Madison Square Garden on Aug. 3 and Chicago’s United Center on Aug. 6, and Khan is in final development for additional tour looks for these two shows.
“Once the tour is over, we will resume designing dresses that she has

Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum Plans First Museum Exhibition for Willi Smith

STREET-INSPIRED FASHION: The Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum is planning the first museum exhibition for the late pioneering American designer Willi Smith.
Scheduled to open in March at the Upper East Side cultural institution, “Willi Smith: Street Couture” will showcase an array of streetwear from the fashion label WilliWear. After launching the company in 1976 with his partner Laurie Mallet, Smith dove into the realm of collaborating through partnerships with artists, designers and performers. In doing so, the aim was to erode social, cultural and economic boundaries. In 1980, for example, his models danced, pranced and glided down the runway to the music of a jazz quartet of the airy Alvin Ailey Dance Center.
When the exhibition is unveiled on March 13, it will include 200-plus works by Smith and collaborators such as Juan Downey, Dan Friedman, Keith Haring, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Les Levine, Dianne McIntyre, Nam June Paik and SITE. Visitors to the Cooper Hewitt will find a number of pieces that have not been shown publicly in more than 30 years. The exhibition will run through Oct. 25.
“Street Couture” takes its name from Smith’s most iconic collection, which was presented in 1983. At that time, the designer

On Creates Alpine Hut to Introduce Outdoor Line

MOUNTAIN HIGH: On, the leading running shoe brand in Switzerland, has come up with a novel way to introduce its new outdoor collection.
The Zurich-based company has created the On Mountain Hut in the Piz Lunghin, a Swiss mountain also known as “The Roof of Europe,” in the Albula Alps. The hut is located at an elevation of 8,200 feet and sits next to an alpine lake. The zero-waste structure is reachable only on foot, is powered by solar panels and uses filtered rainwater. It will remain on the mountain until September, when it will be deconstructed.
Anyone is welcome to hike up the mountain to visit the hut, but only the winners of competitions hosted by On’s retail partners as well as its employees are allowed to stay overnight.
The hut also serves to publicize the company’s first hiking shoe, the Cloudrock Waterproof, that has a patented Mission Grip sole and is 35 percent lighter than comparable hiking shoes, according to the company. Other pieces in the outdoor collection are the Cloudventure Peak, an outdoor shoe designed for speed, as well as a Waterproof Anorak all-weather jacket with triple skin and ventilation slits made of PTFE-free materials.

Men’s Stores Are Changing the Rules of Retailing

NEW YORK — The rules of the game have changed and independent men’s specialty stores that have adapted to the new normal are on a winning streak.
Whether it’s a de-emphasis of traditional tailored clothing — long the bread and butter of independent retailers — or a dramatic shift in their vendor mix, the survivors have learned to navigate the current climate.
Many larger brands are opening their own stores — either brick-and-mortar or virtual — leaving independents hard-pressed to compete. And customers searching the Internet to compare prices on commonly found labels has also prompted stores to look elsewhere.
“We’re finally at a tipping point,” said Ken Giddon, president of Rothman’s. “The relationship between retailers and vendors has to be reworked. Retailers are waking up to the fact that things have to change. They can’t keep their heads in the sand anymore on pricing.”
He wasn’t alone. Mike Zack, owner of Circa 2000 in Plano, Tex., has been banging the same drum for a while now. “It’s a whole new world today,” he said. “We’re completely changing our vendor structure and have gotten rid of most of the big brands like Peter Millar and Tommy Bahama.

Mark Parker’s Pay Day

Mark Parker saw his compensation sprint ahead at Nike Inc. last fiscal year.
The chairman, president and chief executive officer’s compensation totaled $ 14 million for the fiscal year ended May 31, an increase of 48 percent.
Parker’s take included a salary of $ 1.7 million and $ 4.1 million in incentive pay, but the majority of his compensation came in the form of stock and option awards, totaling $ 8 million. (He might not see the full value of those awards given changes in the company’s stock price).
Last month, the company logged fourth-quarter sales of over $ 10 billion — breaking the 11-digit mark in a quarter for the first time. Profits, however, fell to $ 989 million from $ 1.14 billion as the company spent more on marketing and product launches and weathered a higher tax bill.
While Parker’s pay package is big, it’s not the largest in fashion. A WWD study this week of the top earners in retail, apparel and beauty found Fabrizio Freda, ceo at The Estée Lauder Cos., in the lead, with annual compensation of $ 48.8 million.

Polimoda Appoints Massimiliano Giornetti Head of Fashion Design

MILAN — Florentine fashion school Polimoda has tapped Massimiliano Giornetti as its first head of fashion design.
A Polimoda alumnus, Giornetti worked for 16 years at Salvatore Ferragamo, from 2010 to 2016 as creative director of the women’s and men’s lines. In 2017, Giornetti started designing the collections of Chinese luxury brand Shanghai Tang, which he exited at the end of 2018.
“Polimoda’s success reflects our ability to understand the spirit of the time and possibly anticipate it. Observing the crisis of large retailers, I think that fashion will soon need a new wave of creativity and well-made products. Polimoda has direct access to made-in-Italy know-how and revels in ethnic, cultural and gender diversity among students; these are ideal conditions for the birth of contemporary design,” said Polimoda director Danilo Venturi. “Meeting Massimiliano was serendipitous: he knows how contemporary fashion works, he is a former student, he reached the highest levels on the international scene and shares my same vision. The school will be a bit more maison with him and this will enable us to once again make our contribution.”
In his new role, Giornetti, who will officially start working at Polimoda at the beginning of the fall semester in September, is

Men’s Denim Brand Monfrère Expands to U.K.

Los Angeles-based men’s brand Monfrère aims to make its upscale denim the go-to wardrobe piece for day and night, and it’s quickly expanding.
The three-year-old business is now in Selfridges, marking its expansion to the U.K., and has a contract with a Korean distributor, which the company expects will help its presence in the Asian market grow over the next six to 12 months.
Monfrère is sold in 55 doors, including Barneys New York and Bergdorf Goodman, and was cofounded by Sean Rudes — whose father Jeffrey Rudes started J Brand with Susie Crippen — along with Steven Dann. The founder of his namesake men’s shop in New York, Dann is also Sean Rudes’ brother-in-law.
“Sean and I were really discussing denim fits and what we were looking to purchase and wear and both of us had the same requirements,” Dann said of the company’s start.
The two wanted comfortable denim that fit well and could be worn with a T-shirt and sneakers and just as easily transition to a look with a sports jacket. The two scoured the market looking for a brand that fit their requirements, but didn’t turn up anything in line with the description. That was when they said they

Steven Oo’s Pure Wit in Cashmere Knit

“Stitched in Time” marked the second year that the Chinese yarn-maker, Consinee Group, has held a fashion show in New York City. More than 400 guests attended, including corporate clients of Consinee Group, textile and fashion industry professionals, as well as representatives from the Chinese embassy and the United Nations, among others.
“Here in New York, anything and everything is possible,” said Boris Xue, chairman and chief executive officer of Consinee Group, in his closing remarks to attendees. For knitwear designer Steven Oo, Xue’s sentiment was manifested in the 88 ready-to-wear looks designed for the show, each composed of Consinee Group cashmere yarns, and were draped, fitted, twisted, ribbed and even pleated.
The show was held at Cipriani on Wall Street to celebrate the company’s nearly 20 years of cashmere competency — as the largest exporter of cashmere yarn in China. Consinee Group produces and sells nearly 10,000 tons of high-grade yarns and fabrics a year, with cashmere assuming nearly 20 to 25 percent of the world’s pure cashmere raw material production, according to the company. Clients include Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Burberry, Hugo Boss, Max Mara, Chanel, Theory, Michael Kors and Hermès, among other global fashion brands.

SHANGHAI — H&M is bringing its fashion designer collaboration initiatives to China, and designer Angel Chen has created a 45-piece capsule with the retailer’s design team. The collection is due to hit stores in September.
This marks the first time H&M has worked with a Chinese design talent in pursuit of generating buzz among the local fashion community, as well as tapping into the young, fashion-minded, affluent and well-traveled Chinese speaking consumer since the collection will not only be available in China both online and in stores but also in countries with dense Chinese populations, such as Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines and Canada.

All the High Fashion Moments From Beyoncé’s ‘Spirit’ Music Video

Beyoncé’s “Spirit” music video is visually striking, both for its picturesque landscape and high-fashion moments.
Filmed in the Grand Canyon, Beyoncé is joined by a host of dancers and her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, dressed in looks ranging from Valentino’s spring 2019 couture collection to up-and-coming international brands, including Canadian designer Mark Fast and Brazilian brand Maison Alexandrine. The looks were styled by Zerina Akers.

The music video was debuted Tuesday evening and is a part of the upcoming “The Lion King” live-action reboot’s soundtrack, which Beyoncé curated and produced. Beyoncé herself voices adult Nala in the film and joined the film’s cast for the Los Angeles premiere on July 10, where she had a mother-daughter twinning moment with Blue Ivy, and for the London premiere on Sunday, where Beyoncé and husband Jay Z met the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The “Spirit” music video starts off with Beyoncé sitting in the desert wearing a color-blocked, exaggerated ruffle look from Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Valentino spring 2019 couture collection, which celebrated black women. She was joined by Blue Ivy, who wore a similar lilac-colored ruffle dress.

Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor, the 27-year-old model, DJ and podcaster who’s also the daughter of Duran Duran bassist John Taylor and TV host and photographer Amanda de Cadenet, has a new gig. She’s teaming with Fame & Partners, a Los Angeles-contemporary collection of made-to-order essentials, on a capsule collection, which launches today.
The eight-piece capsule, which is available for a three-month period, is designed to recognize diversity with almost zero-waste sustainable manufacturing. The collection focuses on body inclusivity and will be sold exclusively online at fameandpartners.com.
“It allows us to have capabilities to customize each piece,” said Breanna Warner, who oversees brand marketing for Fame and Partners. She said customers can customize colors, length of the skirts, length of the tops, and size. They can also add straps for support. The pieces are manufactured in China.
Retail prices range from $ 129 to $ 279 and sizes run the gamut from 0-22.
De Cadenet Taylor and the team worked together to create pieces that fit women’s various body types properly.

Michael Kors Leans Into Chinese Valentine’s Day With New Ambassadors

It’s a tough act to follow a megastar like Yang Mi, the face of last year’s Michael Kors Chinese Valentine’s Day campaign. So for this year’s occasion, the brand tried a different tack — tapping not one but two famous faces: Gen Z actors Leo Wu and Lareina Song.
It’s not the only thing about the campaign the brand has expanded. While last year was the first time Michael Kors produced a special capsule collection for the occasion — consisting of two purses — this year’s collection has grown to 30 items.
With a campaign shot by photographer Kai Z. Feng, the collection features graffiti scribbles on products spanning ready-to-wear, small leather goods, footwear and jewelry.

Qixi falls on Aug. 7 but in the lead up to that, Michael Kors will be throwing an event at its Chengdu Taikoo Li store on July 26 with the two stars.
Wu, who is in the middle of shooting “Cross Fire,” said he will likely spend actual Qixi working but shared there were plenty sweet moments to savor in life regardless.

Late Designer Azzedine Alaïa’s Personal Couture Archive Revealed – to Students

PARIS — Despite his best efforts, fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa never managed to keep his personal collection of couture garments a complete secret.
“Every time he went to a fashion auction, he used to say he was going to the physiotherapist,” said Carla Sozzani, Alaïa’s close friend and cofounder of the Association Azzedine Alaïa, speaking at an event at the maison’s headquarters in Paris on Thursday.
“We would say to him, ‘But you already went yesterday,’” she continued. “And then he’d come back laden with huge plastic parcels that he would hide under his desk. Just last month, we discovered some of those parcels: They contained rare Vionnet and Balenciaga pieces.”
The extent of Alaïa’s personal couture collection was discovered following the designer’s passing in November 2017, and was somewhat overwhelming.
More than 10,000 garments, ranging from vintage Vionnet, Charles James, Schiaparelli, Jean Patou and around 200 Balenciaga items, to more contemporary pieces like Martin Margiela and Comme des Garçons, lie in the fashion house’s archives in the Marais, left without any directions from the collector himself.
“I knew Alaïa was collecting, as I often saw him in the auction rooms and he always snagged the best pieces,” Olivier Saillard, fashion historian and director of

Rag & Bone’s Mashed-up Men’s Spring Collection

Marcus Wainwright is feeling twisted these days.
For the spring men’s collection, Wainwright, the founder and chief brand officer of Rag & Bone, “mashed things up” by taking the brand’s key pieces and updating them to appeal to a street and sports fan.
Wainwright said the collection just returned to New York after being shown to buyers in Europe, where it received a strong reception from retailers.
“Our men’s business is really strong,” he said. “Men’s in general is having a prolonged moment and ours is very stable and growing nicely.”
But what customers were clamoring for, he said, was “more fashion.” Not over-the-top trendy items, but pieces that “push the line and the tenets of the brand,” he said.
So for spring Wainwright answered the call by designing “a more twisted Rag & Bone,” he said during a walkthrough of the line at the company’s Meatpacking District showroom in Manhattan. “Every season we go back to workwear, British tailoring and military references but we’re also bringing in sports elements.”
Case in point: part of the spring offering was “very loosely inspired by tennis from the 1920s onward,” Wainwright said, pointing to a collection of sweaters with V-neck ribbing and other details specific to the sport.

Philipp Plein Designs Off-Field Uniforms for A.C. Monza Soccer Team

Once again Philipp Plein is set to reinforce its bond with the sports world as the official partner of Italian soccer team A.C. Monza.
Under a three-season agreement, the luxury fashion brand has designed off-field uniforms for the team and its management. These include black suits with details in red, the club’s insignia color, such as the brand’s staple skull on the jackets’ lapels or the piping on accessories. Reflecting Philipp Plein’s style, gothic lettering appears on the suits and the coats. As for accessories, the uniform comprises calf leather oxford shoes with contrasting bright red laces, and a printed crocodile tote bag with stitched lettering.

Media tycoon and former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi in 2018 took control of A.C. Monza, which plays in the Series C league, through his Fininvest group. An avid soccer fan, Berlusconi owned the A.C. Milan team until 2017.

This is not the first athletic gig for the brand, which previously inked several partnerships in the sports world, such as with A.S. Roma and A.S. Monaco and Lugano’s Hockey Club.

Clara Daguin Couture Fall 2019

The domed Chapelle Expiatoire tucked into a quiet square in the 8th arrondissement, built on the original burial site of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette, provided the mystical backdrop for Clara Daguin’s first couture presentation.
The 2016 Hyères finalist, who specializes in combining artisanal techniques with technology in a form of science fiction meets fashion, showcased a single creation. Dubbed “Atom” and worn by her sister Mélanie like a living installation, her dress — if that is what it can be called — undulated in time to the soundtrack, activated by sound thanks to the circuits worked into the fabric.
Like the rings of gas that surround certain planets, four gauzy halos oscillated and glimmered around a column dress completely covered in five kilograms of glass beads, mirrors and neopixels, a pattern like a double-helix flickering mysteriously.
The creation of the design necessitated 3,142 hours of handiwork by a team of 31 helpers. Even in fashion’s tech-driven future, craftsmanship has its place.

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Vera Gives Back

In Washington, two morons have worked hard to delay or dilute via an amendment approving ongoing funding of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund for first responders. In New York, two entities are joining ranks to do something nice for people who dedicate their lives to the protection of others.
Global Goddess of Bridal Vera Wang is pairing with Brides Across America, an organization that gifts bridal gowns and underwrites weddings for U.S. troops and, more recently, first responders.
Wang got involved as part of the observance of a major brand milestone. “2019…celebrating our 30th year in business! Who’d of thunk it?!” she mused. The approaching anniversary led her to reflect on more than her own place in fashion. “Milestones also make us grateful for all the opportunities that have come our way,” she said. “Given the world we live in, with all of its complexities and challenges, it is so joyful for me to celebrate my anniversary by celebrating people who have given their lives for us. I look forward to dressing 10 couples on their happiest of days.”
Brides Across America has been gifting gowns and weddings to military personnel since it was founded in 2008 by chief executive officer Heidi Janson.

Sotheby’s and Stadium Goods are partnering on a global online-only auction of 100 rare and limited-edition sneakers that opens today and runs through July 23. The auction includes a public exhibition at Sotheby’s New York Gallery at 1334 York Avenue.
The sneakers, which have been provided by Stadium Goods’ Trophy Case, the company’s collection of the rarest items, span several years and date as far back as the early Seventies with the Nike “Moon Shoe” made by Nike cofounder and Oregon University track coach Bill Bowerman for runners at the 1972 Olympic Trials. That shoe is estimated at $ 160,000 given its unworn condition.
Other models expected to draw interest include Virgil Abloh’s MCA Chicago Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 sneakers that were on display at the designer’s “Figures of Speech” exhibit at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. 
“We spend a lot of time on our Trophy Case,” said Stadium Goods cofounder and co-chief executive officer John McPheters. “A good chunk of items we’ve already had. We’ve done a ton of work behind creating this list of shoes and it’s indicative of how this world has changed.”

The Best Social Media Reactions to the ‘Cats’ Trailer

The “Cats” trailer is finally here, and the Internet isn’t too happy about it.
When it was announced that the beloved musical would be given the live-action treatment, musical theater lovers rejoiced. But many have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment — and downright terror — toward the film’s first trailer.

The trailer features a number of A-list actors and musicians, including Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Idris Elba and Dame Judi Dench, among others, who appear as felines with human-like faces and bodies. The film’s director, Tom Hooper — best known for directing films like “Les Misérables” and “The King’s Speech” — has called the technique “digital fur technology.”
Many commenters are poking fun at said technology, comparing the actors to other iterations of this anthropomorphism in film, including in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” where Emma Watson’s character, Hermione Granger, accidentally transforms into a cat, and Mike Myers’ take on “The Cat in the Hat.” Others have taken liberty with the trailer by adding in their own edits, like one user who cut in the song from Jordan Peele’s horror film, “Us,” over the “Cats” trailer.

Zuhair Murad Fall Couture 2019

With North Africa as inspiration, Zuhair Murad worked traditional carpet patterns into richly colored jacquards and hand-beaded jackets — using them to bring a new flavor to his world of decadent sensuality.
“I like in every collection to search for a theme and to let people dream, and enter the dream somehow,” Murad said before the show. His North African jaunt, which he called “Mirages et Oasis,” came in deep reds and purples, infused with Lurex, as well as some jazzy, solid-gold statement numbers. Last season’s pleated pastel rainbow dress — worn by Chiara Ferragni last week in an Instagram post that garnered more than 500,000 likes — came in gold renditions, one with a muted leopard print and embellished with sequins, and another with an iridescent sheen and a matching cape that billowed out behind.
Also in the heart-stopping category: a fiery orange chiffon dress with puffs of feathers lining the cape — the airy gown flowing from a tightly wrapped bustier.
Murad keeps it all highly elevated, yet he relishes contradictions. Here, he used velvet as a contrast to the shimmery and beaded sides of the collection, lending a quiet softness to the high volume lineup.

Nordstrom, Union Throw Block Party for Concept 005 Launch

Sam Lobban wasn’t about to host just another in-store event for the launch of Nordstrom’s latest pop-up men’s concept shop. Instead, the retailer’s vice president of men’s fashion threw a high-energy block party at the Hester Street Market on the Lower East Side to introduce Concept 005: Union & Company, complete with food, drinks, live music and fun takeaways.
“We’ve been to enough boring cocktail parties,” said Chris Gibbs, owner of Union, the buzzy Los Angeles-based specialty store. “We wanted to create something we would actually go to.”
The event was properly named a block party. The vibe was a neighborhood cookout, with food provided by Jamaican restaurant Miss Lily’s. The only thing missing was an open fire hydrant for children to run around, but the young attendees found fun and games at a ping-pong table instead.
A newsstand near the entrance carried fashion magazines, gave out free candy, and scratch-off tickets for a chance to win a free T-shirt. Games such as dominoes and chess were stationed on picnic tables and wooden speakers were in the rear where Stretch and Bobbito provided tunes for the party.

OTB Bans Disposable Plastic Bottles Throughout Group Companies

SAY NO MORE: OTB is forgoing disposable plastic bottles. The initiative will affect 2,500 employees in Italy and over the next few months it will be extended to the group’s foreign staff, reaching more than 6,500 people.
Dubbed “Remove Plastic From Water by Removing Water From Plastic,” the awareness campaign against disposable plastic bottles stems from an internal survey that revealed how every year more than 124,000 plastic bottles are purchased and used by the fashion group’s employees — only in its Italian companies.
Founded by Renzo Rosso, OTB controls Diesel, Maison Margiela, Marni, Paula Cademartori, Viktor & Rolf and production arms Staff International and Brave Kid. As reported in June, OTB has also taken a stake in the luxury brand Amiri, founded by Mike Amiri in 2014.
Taking a concrete step in curbing its environmental impact, OTB has banned the sale of plastic bottles effective immediately and is replacing them with drinkable water dispensers. To further encourage new daily practices, the group has provided its employees with sustainable bottles, partnering with 24Bottles, the Italian design company whose mission is to drastically reduce the use of disposable plastic bottles globally.
For OTB, 24Bottles has reinterpreted its “Clima” model in stainless steel which keeps a liquid hot

Viktor & Rolf Couture Fall 2019

The prime definition of glamour as “an attractive or exciting quality that makes certain people or things seem appealing” links it unquestionably to the world of couture. Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren considered another facet of the word and started an “investigation into the original meaning of the word — casting a spell,” Snoeren said.
They had, they said at a preview, wanted to work with Claudy Jongstra, a fellow Dutch artist who has embraced sustainability in her work. To create felt such as the one used as a cornerstone of this collection, she raises her own flock, shears their wool herself and then dyes them using only plant pigments taken from her organic garden — including the elusive “Burgundian black,” a medieval recipe that produces a deep black with red undertones, which she redeveloped. Talk about a process.
But there was no preaching message behind Horsting and Snoeren’s musing. Rather, they wanted to inspire action. As the general feeling of doom about the environment rises on all sides, the designers wanted to “show something that would give a positive message,” Horsting said. “To cast a positive spell that says things can be done,” Snoeren added.

YG Celebrates Release of Summer Capsule

LOS ANGELES — “Rats Die Slow” reads the back of one 4Hunnid T-shirt.
The message needs no explanation rapper YG (né Keenon Daequan RayJackson) said about one of the pieces from his brand 4Hunnid’s summer capsule. The recently released collection of mostly T-shirts and a pair of basketball shorts is a nod to summer and beautiful women, he went on to say as he described the items.
“It’s really just representing our lifestyle during the summer,” he said. “When summer hits, a lot of people do a lot of things and they plan a lot of trips. I wanted to make a capsule based around pretty females.”
Most of the pieces bear phrases the music artist said represent the lifestyle of “having a good time, being real, being authentic, enjoying yourself, chasing your dream and getting your money.” The capsule debuted at an event Thursday evening that included a gallery-like installation of photos from the capsule’s look book imagery.
4Hunnid, also the name of YG’s record label under Interscope, started in early 2016. It largely won a following as artist merchandise but that changed last year with the introduction of a cut-and-sew collection that made its debut at a star-studded fashion show that drew

Britain’s John Lewis Revamps Offer, Puts Urban Spin on Men’s Wear

LONDON — British department store John Lewis & Partners, where customers can find everything from lamps and frying pans to flat-screen TVs and computers, is putting a fresh spin on men’s wear in a bid to speak to multiple generations, street and sneaker devotees and necktie-free urbanites.
The retail stalwart, which also owns the upmarket supermarket chain Waitrose, has held relatively steady in the crisis that is sweeping the British high street. The store continues to invest in its store real estate, own-brand merchandise, staff training and has been swinging the spotlight onto own brand and exclusive products that customers cannot buy anywhere else.
It’s a tough time for British brick-and-mortar clothing retailers in particular. They’re falling victim to online competition, fast-fashion and streetwear competitors, as well as luxury brands keen to woo younger shoppers with entry-price merchandise such as sneakers and T-shirts.
Marks & Spencer is a prime example of the struggle so many are facing: On Thursday the retailer said in a terse statement that its managing director of clothing and home, Jill McDonald, was leaving the business after two years.

Mia Becar Launches With Direct-to-Consumer Business Model to Sell Footwear

SURE-FOOTED: The direct-to-consumer footwear company Mia Becar is up and running.
The West Hollywood-based company was started by Betzabe “Betsy” Gonzalez and Carolina Lujan. Aiming to establish repeat customers, Mia Becar will offer monthly drops of capsule collections to try to keep shoppers coming back. The shoes retail from $ 575 to $ 875. “We thought this was the future of a luxury shoe brand. We want to keep the brand fresh. We also wanted to be able to control our message and our story.”
Gonzalez and Lujan were both born in Mexico and they studied shoe design and graduated from Arsutoria School in Milan in 2017. Their debut collection was inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood and features such looks as D’Orsat pumps, peep-toe mules and stiletto booties.
Married to former New York Mets player Adrian Gonzalez, Betsy has lived in different cities over the years due to his Major League Baseball career. On the road, she noticed a need “for brands that supported noble causes, elevated women and held themselves to the highest standards.” Motivated partially by the belief that “good shoes simply make life better,” she and her cofounder Lujan visited numerous factories in Italy before starting their Italian-made footwear brand.

Dressed in full evening gowns, guests crowded onto the catwalk to pose for photographs. Drag queen Violet Chachki furiously fanned herself as she greeted Swedish p.r. Fredrik Robertsson, rocking a green sequined hooded dress. Catherine Deneuve swooped in on Alber Elbaz, running her fingers through his bleached hair.
In a corner, Christina Aguilera sat with a sour expression as camera flashes went off in her face. Meanwhile, Hong Kong billionaire Stephen Hung, wearing silk Versace pajamas and velvet slippers, maintained an impassive expression behind his mirrored Ray-Bans. Robert Altman, eat your heart out.
By the time the show kicked off at 3:15 p.m. to the sound of Technotronic’s “Pump Up the Jam,” the space was filled with the kind of nervous energy one usually finds in a nightclub.

American Eagle is prepping kids for the back-to-school season by offering a collaboration collection with multiplatinum-selling hip-hop artist Lil Wayne.

Guo Pei Couture Fall 2019

If one believes in the multiverse theory, it’s entirely possible that Guo Pei’s creations are just the thing to wear when stepping out for a formal occasion. Such was the premise for a collection titled “Alternate Universe” that read as a Neil Gaiman-esque mythology in which goddesses of all creeds mingle among mortals. After all, what else to conclude from a show that starts with a pair of conjoined twins appearing from under a crow-laden arch?
That the Chinese couturier kept to a predominantly cream, metallic and gray palette gave her collection a cohesiveness reminiscent of Greek statuary. And details emerged despite the profusion of embellishments.
Embroidered scenes on dresses depicted “angels and Satan sit[ting] next to each other,” “monkeys sitting on the king’s throne under the guidance of prophets,” flocks of birds and esoteric motifs in the manner of illuminated manuscripts. There was one ballgown decked out as a human puppet theater, strings held by some sort of animal. A crow was perched on the shoulder of another gown with ballooning sleeves.
The final look was a complete tableau, the model in a marigold dress framed by a green knoll of silk chiffon grass, garment and landscape bleeding into each other.

In celebration of the Nickelodeon TV show’s 20th anniversary, Nike is teaming with NBA player Kyrie Irving to create a SpongeBob SquarePants collection that takes inspiration from the beloved show’s characters.
Nike and Irving — a self-described super fan of the show — worked in collaboration with Nickelodeon to create five versions of the Kyrie 5 and Kyrie Low 2 sneakers that are designed after the titular character along with his friends Patrick Star, Squidward Tentacles, Mr. Krabs and Sandy Cheeks.

Umbro, Kinfolk Collaborate on Rio-Themed Capsule

Umbro has teamed with Kinfolk, a streetwear label and retailer based in Brooklyn, on an ath-leisure-based collection inspired by the classic sportswear worn by the youth of Rio de Janeiro.
Classic Kinfolk and Umbro styles are being updated with the colors and signatures of the city such as the wavy pattern on the sidewalks of the Copacabana and the red, white and black of Flamengo, one of Brazil’s largest nightclubs. The club was a big part of Umbro’s 95-year history during the Nineties and its trademark bright colors were used for the collection.
“Rio’s street energy and the diversity of the city’s youth is super exciting. Kids dress with style, using what they have and wear it or customize it to make it unique,” said Jey Perie, Kinfolk’s cofounder and creative director. “I also love the incorporation of all the football jerseys in everyday street style. The Brazilian league still has the best football jersey design.”
To capture the collection, Kinfolk also worked with Brazilian photographer Ricardo Beliel, who captured the culture and atmosphere of the Maracanã Stadium in the Seventies and Eighties.
Helene Hope, Umbro’s head of global brand marketing, said the collection “captures the true vibrancy, spirit and energy of Brazilian street fashion.”

Case in point: the Versace number, which Lopez wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000, is getting the sneaker treatment in a collaboration between the fashion house and clothing brand, Concepts.
Launching Friday, the two have partnered for a limited-edition Chain Reaction platform sneaker that mimics the green, jungle-print seen on Lopez’s dress. The sneakers retail for $ 1,075.

Lopez’s dress is still celebrated as a cultural emblem of the early aughts and is credited for catapulting the singer and actress to fashion icon status. The dress was the impetus behind Google launching Google Images, with former chief executive officer, Eric Schmidt, stating that Lopez’s dress was the most popular search term that the company had ever seen.
The limited-edition sneaker is available in both men and women’s sizes and will be available on Concepts’ web site and stores in Boston and New York.

Maison Margiela Artisanal Fall Couture 2019

Chinos, lederhosen, breeches, flares — they’re not just kinds of pants. They’re among the historical research materials pictured in vintage photos on John Galliano’s Maison Margiela Artisanal mood board, from which he distilled a plan “to explore the trouser and how that could be transformative.”
Yes, Galliano believes in the power of pants (he prefers “trousers”) to transform, not only from one item of clothing into another, but an entire belief system as represented by sartorial selection. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
In the couture collection he showed on Wednesday morning, Galliano offered part three of his exploration of decadence. “Before, we were feeling the excess, and now I’m feeling we’re in decay, reflected by the breakdown of social structure. I’m feeling impulsive and anarchic,” he said in contemplative mode during a preshow visit at the very on-brand headquarters, a bastion of beautifully curated, chic dishabille. He then added a wry rejoinder. “I sound like a teenager, don’t I?”
Not at all. Nor did he sound like a typical designer during a typical preview. Galliano’s fashion speak is often dense. Talk of decadence moving toward decay led him to observe that “so few of us remember how to rely on instinct,” and

Jennifer Lopez Performs in Custom Designed Fur

IS IT HOT ENOUGH?: While half of the U.S. is gripped in a heat wave, Jennifer Lopez is storming along with her “It’s My Party”’ concert tour with all sorts of wardrobe changes, including a floor-length fur coat.
The pale gold fox coat was based on her specs and designed specifically for the Grammy winner by the Fur Salon at Saks Fifth Avenue. Lopez tried on a canvas in her New York penthouse apartment before the final look was created. In the end, she decided that a train was in order for the outerwear as well as an oversized shawl collar that doubles as a hood.
The Saks outpost has been tapped before for fur items for previous trips to the Oscars and Grammys, a spokeswoman said. Should any of her fans want to copy that look, a special-order version of the style can be had for $ 27,500.
The entertainer will soon have reason for another party — her 50th birthday is July 24. In honor of that occasion, the avant-garde footwear specialist Concepts has teamed with Versace to create limited-edition “Chain Reaction” sneakers inspired by the jungle-printed green dress with a plunging neckline that Lopez wore in 2000. In touting Friday’s launch,

Stone Island x Nike Golf Capsule Kicks Off With Rory McIlroy

MILAN — The latest collaboration between Stone Island and Nike will be unveiled on July 18, the opening day of the prestigious four-day golf tournament the Open Championship, at its 148th edition, hosted this year at the Royal Portrush Golf Club in Northern Ireland.
The two pieces of the Stone Island x Nike Golf capsule, including a jacket and a crewneck, will be worn by Rory McIlroy.
“Knowing that the conditions during the tournament can change quickly, and can be quite challenging, we wanted to focus on outerwear,” said Kelly Tweeden, vice president and creative director for Nike Golf, Nike Tennis and Nike Skateboarding. “As experts in creating product that performs as well as it looks, Stone Island was a natural partner in finding the best solutions.”
Designed to facilitate the body’s movement, especially during the swing phase, and guarantee optimal thermic regulation, the jacket and the crewneck are crafted from a military cotton satin fabric bonded to a breathable, water-repellent membrane. The color palette includes gray, turquoise and yellow, this last used only for the crewneck.
“One of the things that has always made me enthusiastic is that those who love sports love Stone Island. Golf particularly fascinates me, because it is a precision game in

The ‘Gossip Girl’ Reboot Is Coming: A Look Back at the Show’s Iconic Fashion Moments

A “Gossip Girl” reboot is officially in the works.
Seven years after it went off the air, the CW teen drama, famous for its over-the-top fashion, is being remade for HBO Max, a new streaming service launching in spring 2020, which will be home to HBO and WarnerMedia programming.
According to TVLine, the reboot will also be set in New York and will highlight how social media plays into the lives of elite Manhattan private school students. The show’s former executive producers — Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran — are returning for the reboot, but it has not yet been announced if the original series’ cast — including Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Penn Badgley, among others — will be returning.
“Gossip Girl” has long been admired as one of the most fashionable TV shows of the late Aughts, attracting some of the industry’s biggest names for cameos, including Rachel Zoe, Karlie Kloss, Cynthia Rowley and Tory Burch, among others. Costume designer Eric Daman dressed the cast in looks straight from the runway, creating the show’s most iconic fashion moments. The series’ last season in particular had a number of standout looks, including Meester’s character, Blair Waldorf, who wore an Elie

Valentino Couture Fall 2019

The magic continues. On Wednesday night at the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli staged another dazzling show. Make that an event, one without the bells and whistles of a major set, but with a high-intensity front row that itself dazzled — Gwyneth Paltrow and Celine Dion in white, and Piccioli’s new BFF Naomi Campbell, who didn’t get the white memo and instead rocked hot pink stripes and a floppy hat. Their row of honor was anchored by Valentino Garavani and Giancarlo Giammetti. (The positive relationship between the house and its founders, who cashed out years ago, is a lovely anomaly.)
The audience settled in for the latest turn in a brilliant series that has catapulted Piccioli to the forefront of the haute oeuvre. After the passing of Karl Lagerfeld and with John Galliano doing fascinating experimental work at Maison Margiela, Piccioli is its undisputed leader. His belief in couture’s ongoing relevance is well-known, including that even haute can espouse inclusivity as indicated by last season’s casting of mostly black models.
“It’s important today to dream of a world without boundaries, where everyone can live their own routes, everywhere. It’s just a dream, of course,” Piccioli  said during a preview. The

Bridget Foley’s Diary: For Derek Lam, the Future Is Contemporary

“It was kind of like, which child do you choose?”
Ultimately the answer came with clarity for Derek Lam and his business partner/chief executive officer and husband, Jan Hendrik-Schlottmann. The two confirmed to WWD that they are shuttering the Derek Lam Collection business to focus on the Derek Lam 10 Crosby contemporary brand that now accounts for 70 percent of their company’s overall business. Last week the men informed their major retail partners that the current pre-fall collection, which completed shipping this month, will be the label’s last, at least for the foreseeable future.
Lam said they were “putting the collection on hiatus,” but the move sounded definitive as he and Schlottmann discussed it, and their company’s redirected plans, over lunch at the Nomad Hotel last week.
Despite the designer’s “which child” characterization, the decision sounded less “Sophie’s Choice” than pragmatic business move, made not in emotionally wrought haste but after careful consideration over the past two or three years. It allows the partners to focus on the contemporary brand that has been on an upward growth trajectory. Lam noted, too, a bit wistfully, that from a creative standpoint, these days the contemporary arena is less fraught, more fun and allows for greater
