Theory Pre-Fall 2020

Theory has quietly gone through some internal changes, resulting in the current vacancy of a creative director for women’s. The brand’s most recent, Francesco Fucci, joined in 2018 and brought forth a heightened level of sophistication and romance that built upon the brand’s practical workwear foundation. The narrative moving forward will continue to explore those realms with more connectivity to the men’s wear offering.
Overseen by the design studio, the pre-fall assortment was a tightened lineup of quintessential summer pieces celebrating strong-performing product categories that still managed to inject new ideas. It was all about the woman off duty, and giving customers the most use out of an edited assortment about half the size of last year.
There was one new jacket shape, a lightweight blazer with sharp shoulders, rendered into fire opal, black, blue suede and textured crepe to illustrate an element of sophisticated, transitional ease. Three key pant silhouettes were cut in the same cotton stretch twill, while thin knit dressing and silk dresses spoke to the idea of summer glamour. Highlights here included a rich navy top with shoulder sash and a similarly cut dress with chainlink print styled over a matching button down. Other ties and twists, including

Norma Kamali Pre-Fall 2020

For pre-fall, Norma Kamali wanted to design just plain fun ready-to-wear — accessible price-point, yes, machine washable, definitely — but fun was at the forefront of her designs. 
“Clothes that make you feel good have a lot of weight right now,” mused Norma Kamali. “There’s not much that makes us feel good in the world, but when you put something on and it makes you happy, or you feel like you want to dance it in, that’s a little bit of something…if I’m laughing or dancing, I’m OK.”
Kamali split her lineup into two distinct sections — a black, white and chrome colored set for delivery one, with happy, graphic red injected into delivery two. Classic buffalo plaid returned to her lineup alongside sequins and stripes on flirty frocks and easy-dancing separates. Versatile white shirting options felt super fresh and clean within the lineup of vivacious, functional pieces. Speaking to movement, Kamali also brought back her flowy Super Flare dress for pre-fall, after having designed “leopard-, zebra- and everything under the sun-” printed renditions from her archive specifically for the Brooklyn Museum’s upcoming exhibition, “Studio 54: Night Magic.”
Separate from the main collection, Kamali is also debuting her first array of SPF clothing through

Salvatore Ferragamo Pre-Fall 2020

With pre-fall delivering in store between May and June, creative director Paul Andrew wanted to inject an authentic sense of lightness in the collection.
“We approach the pre-fall season with a buy-now-wear-now attitude,” he said, referring to the lightweight fabrications he employed for the collection, which exuded the charming atmosphere of an endless summer. And summer time means holidays for the most, including Andrew. “These are pieces you can pack in the suitcase and, when you pull them out, they look impeccable.”
Offering a sophisticated lineup of essentials with a twist, the designer, for example, created soft-constructed suits showing jackets with front pleats, easy-chic knitted frocks highlighting the sinuous silhouette of the feminine body, as well as shirtdresses enriched with delicate drapes, which also peppered a stretch leather miniskirt worn with a cozy crewneck sweater.
There was something quintessentially Nineties’ in the denim pieces, including a pair of wide-leg pants shown with a simple knitted camisole and a wrap skirt matched with a belted jacket and a striped shirt for a touch of preppy everyday elegance.
A comfortable sense of ease also defined the outerwear offering, which spanned from a fluid trench punctuated by leather details to a slightly oversize shearling coat designed to

Saint Laurent Adds Sant Ambroeus Food Truck to Rive Droite Store

ITALIAN CHRISTMAS: Panettone on the go, anyone?
Until Dec. 24, those visiting or passing by the Saint Laurent Rive Droite store, located on the Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris, will be able to sample the cuisine of Sant Ambroeus, the famed Milanese pastry shop. Opened in 1936, the historical pasticceria is a favorite of Anthony Vacarello’s, the creative director of Saint Laurent.
A black and pink food truck is currently set up in front of the Saint Laurent Rive Droite boutique, offering two pasta dishes as well as a panettone made with marrons glacés, typically French chestnut-based sweets.
Sant Ambroeus’s traditional pandoro, a star-shaped Christmas brioche, will be available for purchase in the boutique also.
The restaurant, which also has several popular New York outposts, is no stranger to the location: in October 2017 Sant Ambroeus opened a pop-up restaurant at Colette, the previous occupant of the building. It was the concept store’s last guest restaurant before its closure in December 2017.

Jonathan Simkhai Pre-Fall 2020

Shot in various parts of Los Angeles — from industrial Ventura and the beach to empty parking lots by the airport — Jonathan Simkhai explored empty spaces in the vast city as a means to finding solitude. It’s clear that his newfound home has had an impact on his designs — a muted palette derived from sunsets, easy shapes and overall sense of relaxation. (There was even a playful marijuana print on a breezy day dress, but that was an outlier in the lineup).
In keeping things clean and minimal, he rendered the pre-collection in pared-back silhouettes with intricate detailing: think slipdresses inset with lace and a short dress outlined with topstitching and an apron skirt. Simkhai has built his brand, now almost 10 years old, on the foundation of a masculine-feminine dichotomy, which fueled the design of blazers with soft pleating and lace detail, and an innovative khaki jumpsuit with a deceiving trenchcoat exterior. There were some other great workwear options, too — as in a sturdy pinstriped romper and utility jacket with matching pants — that accompanied signatures like pretty lace patchwork dresses and knit dresses and similar two-pieces with button-down fronts.

Z Zegna Leaves Pitti Uomo After Six Seasons

BYE FLORENCE, HELLO MILAN: After six seasons of impactful presentations at Pitti Uomo in Florence, Z Zegna is making a soft comeback to Milan in January.
The Italian brand, which is focused on delivering smart and elegant men’s wardrobes fusing a sophisticated fashion aesthetic with high-tech innovation, will unveil its new fall 2020 lineup with one-on-one appointments at its Milanese showroom located on via Savona.
“After several seasons when Zegna presented its two collections, Ermenegildo Zegna XXX and Z Zegna, in Milan and Florence, respectively, we decided to focus on Milan and its fashion week, in a moment where the city returns to be the most important international destination for men’s fashion,” said Zegna artistic director Alessandro Sartori, explaining the decision.
While Sartori will meet journalists through personal appointments to illustrate the new Z Zegna collection, he will continue to stage a runway show to present the Ermenegildo Zegna XXX luxury men’s wear line. The show will take place the first evening of Milan Fashion Week, on Jan. 10 and it will immediately follow the Dsquared2 runway event, marking the Canadian-Italian brand’s 25th anniversary.

J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2020

Volume, structure and scuba fabrics: those aren’t words commonly associated with the elegantly ornate world of J. Mendel, yet were the core tenets to a more playful pre-fall collection with inspiration kicked off by the iconic photography of Richard Avedon.
Avedon’s work helped shape the collection in more ways than one. It led to the focus on movement, both dramatic and ethereal when it came to product design, and in the look book shoot with the models’ poses, though shot in color to highlight unconventional color combinations derived from painter Rudolf Stingel.
The biggest departure from past collections were the big, clean (read: unembellished) dresses cut with a glossy scuba silk fabric. They were deceivingly lightweight through the volume of fabric and puffed sleeves, paving the way for presence and romance, a hallmark to Gilles Mendel’s design m.o. that he amped up this season. “To me, it’s like a modern romance,” he said inside his Madison Avenue store, adding: “I wanted my girl to go into a fairy-tale story. Not that she’s a princess, but somehow through the volume and architectural clothes, it felt very romantic, but also very considered.”

Rossignol Opens SoHo Store to Showcase Apparel Offerings

Rossignol has brought the mountains to the city.
The venerable French brand best known for its high-end ski equipment is actually shining a spotlight on apparel in its first New York City store.
On Thursday night, the brand opened the doors to a months-long pop-up at 108 Wooster Street in the heart of SoHo. The colorful store, whose neighbors include Canada Goose and Moncler, will remain in place through the winter, and perhaps permanently, said Francois Goulet, president of Rossignol Group North America.
“This is our second activation in the U.S.,” he said. Last winter, Rossignol opened a similar pop-up in Aspen, Colo., that was so successful it remained open for a year and is back again this year, Goulet added.
He said the company’s 112-year history has been centered around ski equipment and hard goods, and it remains the core of the brand, “but we’ve been seriously into apparel for the past six or seven years.” And while there are a couple of sets of skis showcased in the New York pop-up, nearly the entire space is devoted to men’s and women’s clothing. “It’s a great place to showcase our apparel,” Goulet said.
Rossignol had annual sales of 370 million euros as of March

Nicole Miller Pre-Fall 2020

“I was channeling Pattie Boyd and Francoise [Hardy] in that era,” designer Nicole Miller informed of her seasonal muses, noting that her pre-fall collection melded a crossover of the Seventies and Eighties styles, adding, “in the midst of it all, I went to Arizona.”
While traveling to Scottsdale, Miller connected with the works of Frank Lloyd Wright — specifically his desert home, Taliesin West, (where she and her team were given a private tour) and the former interior designs of the Biltmore hotel (where Miller and her team stayed during their trip). The architect’s work was infused into pre-fall through a palette of clay, salmon and turquoise, rooted in earthy greens and muted tones. The colors rendered into a variety of desert floral printed frocks, both vivid and subdued hues with ruched details and slightly puffed sleeves.
Seventies suiting with slight bell-bottom flared pants were offered up in plaid, as a denim tuxedo set or most appealing, in black leather with embroidered floral appliqués. Little black dresses lightly nodded to the Eighties, and felt at home within Miller’s tough-girl repertoire while a graphic, lurex floral jacquard selection added retro appeal, a sleeveless tunic over flared trousers proved to be one of

Altagamma Introduces New President

MILAN — Altagamma on Friday presented its 2020 to 2022 plans and approved the appointment of its new president, Matteo Lunelli. He serves as president and chief executive officer of sparkling wine firm Cantine Ferrari and was previously vice president of Fondazione Altagamma. He succeeds Andrea Illy, who during his tenure, brought the number of partners to 110 from 76.
Among the leadership roles, Sabina Belli, ceo of Pomellato, was nominated vice president for jewelry, and Laudomia Pucci, vice president and image director of Emilio Pucci, was appointed vice president for talents and human capital. This emphasizes Altagamma’s focus on supporting Italian craftsmanship and production, noted Lunelli, who said 236,000 talents will be missing in five years without taking action to rectify this situation.
Lunelli said the mission of Altagamma remains that of “contributing to the growth and competitiveness of the Italian creative and cultural industry, and, indirectly, the country.”
In light of the changing macroeconomic scenarios, he urged Altagamma companies to “intercept the new consumer, who will be more Asian, young, digital and attentive to values such as sustainability.” For this reason, he identified being international, sustainable and contemporary as three strategic pillars to inspire the association’s activities in the next three

To celebrate his sophomore endeavor, “Fine Line,” out today, popstar and Gucci muse Harry Styles is opening pop-up shops in London, New York City and Los Angeles. All three will run concurrently from Dec. 14 to 19 with the L.A. pop-up located at 7080 Hollywood Boulevard and New York City’s on 329 Broome Street.
The events, offering raffles and giveaways, will allow shoppers to step into the world of “Eroda,” the mystical island featured in Styles’ video for “Adore You,” whose introduction is narrated by Spanish star Rosalía. Fans have been decoding the meaning behind “Eroda,” adore spelled backward, and now have the chance to experience it firsthand.

Nanushka Pre-Fall 2010

Going into the season, Hungarian designer Sandra Sandor wanted to infuse minimalism into Nanushka’s pre-fall collection. The inspiration lent itself well to the brand, which has become known for its modern bohemian garb. Asymmetric, cold-shoulder knits and trumpet skirts infused newness to the lineup, layered with signature oversize shirts and easy trousers. Rich textures were abundant, especially in leather — vegan leathers came in pleated offerings (in both box and sunray pleats) as well as in a cropped and wrapped black top or asymmetric hemmed skirts, while patchworked leather offerings were composed mostly of upcycled materials. Both ideas, Sandor noted, would continue into the brand’s fall collection, as would its expanded offering of core denim and year-round layering basics. 
Silhouettes felt slightly longer and leaner than before and feminine silk sets and slouchy knitwear were topped with new double-faced wool jackets, styled with strappy sandals and urban chunky boots. Aside from a check- or plaid-print, minimalism was rendered into the clean palette of whites, browns, black and butter yellow — Sandor described the lot as “monastic.” Overall the collection made for a strong, contemporary take on Nineties minimalism within the consistency that Nanushka is successful for.

Moore From L.A.: 5 Trends to Watch This Red-Carpet Awards Show Fashion Season

‘Tis the season…for Hollywood red-carpet prep!
There will be parties for hosting, blockbusters for toasting and campaigning ahead of the show — it truly is the most wonderful time of the year. But, like this holiday shopping season, this awards season is compressed. Two weeks shorter than last year’s lead-up to the Oscars, the accelerated schedule has stylists and designers working overtime, all in the name of glam.
Tom Ford has already thrown down the gauntlet by moving his runway show from New York Fashion Week to Los Angeles, hosting it on Feb. 7, two days ahead of the Feb. 9 Oscars. And he’s likely to have a banner year because of it. (Rather than a runway show, he could just have had his fall collection modeled by nominees walking the Oscars red carpet and saved a step.)
But there’s still a lot of spotlight before then. This week, nominees were revealed for the Golden Globes (Jan. 5), Critics Choice Awards (Jan. 13) and SAG Awards (Jan. 19). And, with so much streaming content from Netflix, Amazon, Apple and the like, it seems as if there is a record number of A-list women to be dressed, including Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Phoebe Waller-Bridge,

‘The Tuxedo Redefined,’ to Be Presented by NYU Steinhardt’s Costume Studies Program

“The Tuxedo Redefined: Formality, Fluidity and Femininity,” a new exhibition presented by NYU Steinhardt’s Costume Studies program, will be shown at 80 Washington Square East in New York from Jan. 11 to Feb. 5. The show explores how the tuxedo has been incorporated into women’s fashion.
Since the tuxedo was first introduced in the 19th century, it has evolved into the standard for men’s semiformal attire. “The Tuxedo Redefined” explores how women have appropriated the tradition of men’s black-tie attire, and the ways in which the garment has served as a tool for provocation that can reflect transformative notions of gender, class, and sexual identity.
The exhibit features clothing, accessories, photographs and films that demonstrate the reach of the tuxedo. For example, there’s a 1987 Chanel dress by Karl Lagerfeld, as well as fashion advertising and imagery for designer brands such as Yves Saint Laurent,  Gucci and After Six. There also are film clips and photographs featuring Hollywood stars such as Marlene Dietrich and Janelle Monáe.
The exhibit is co-curated by the master’s degree candidates of NYU’s Costume Studies program: Samantha Asam, Benjamin Chait, Lara Damabi, Amanda Driggs, Michael German, H. Colton MacKay, Yaritza Martinez Pule, Ayaka Sano, and Sarah Sebetich, under the

Staud Pre-Fall 2020

Titled “Slow Things,” Sarah Staudinger’s pre-fall collection referenced a mix of playful surf culture with ready-to-wear and accessories that nodded to summer ease and the importance of “slowing down” from the speed of daily life to enjoy the warmer months. The title could also lend itself to how the designer is approaching her work. 
Pre-fall was composed of ideas continued from spring — her voluminous silhouettes in recycled tissue nylon and crinkled organza, long-line ponte de roma knit tunics over pants and satin separates have seemingly become signatures. Custom hibiscus flower and a watercolor island prints (with cheeky, hidden surfers and beachgoers), influenced by Staudinger’s “mental vacation to Hawaii,” were splashed onto these silhouettes, making them feel new again in high summer red, aqua, marine green and yellow tones. A sheer, layered tent maxidress covered in palm leaves and hibiscus flowers felt like an ultra cool, modern mumu while a short, relaxed shirtdress echoed Forties Hawaiian silhouettes. The lineup was both playful — with Hawaiian “slow moving creatures” like starfish and snails embroidered onto linen dresses — and romantic — her dégradé gowns offered in new proportions and sun-faded hues.

“Where have you been?” Kate Hudson asked friend and jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer as Meyer walked through the doors of The Butcher’s Daughter’s private back patio in Venice in Los Angeles on Thursday night.

“The collection gets better and better,” said Meyer. “And look how cute you look.” Hudson had on the “skyglow” jumpsuit, retailing at $ 298 and made with recycled polyester. The entire line — dresses, jumpsuits, sweaters — was made in collaboration with Repreve, a provider of fiber created from recycled plastic bottles.

Or, something that would normally be a $ 450 dress, we’re selling at $ 250. A lot of it is 100 percent recycled.

Dosa Founder Christina Kim Plans to Close Store

Thirty-three years after opening her Dosa store downtown, founder Christina Kim plans to close its doors in favor of a more one-on-one concept.
In an interview Tuesday, Kim said the decision was a long time coming. While the 200-square-foot store will shutter Dec. 21, she has a 2,000-square-foot by-appointment installation-type space at 121 Varick Street that will continue. That is known as “flyingfishprojects.”
Kim said, “Our business has become so much more personalized rather than street-driven with people walking in. We are really building this relationship with clients and it has become much more one-on-one. You really talk to customers more and know what they have. We either talk on the phone, send images or they make an appointment and come in. The service has become much more important than ever before.”
Kim added, “That level of service requires more prep work, and running a ground-floor store in SoHo no longer seemed necessary. As is the case with Dosa’s Los Angeles outpost, Kim decided by-appointment meetings with clients would allow for a more collaborative, private and enriching experience.”
The designer took over the lease from her designer friend Yonson Pak, who specialized in architectural clothing. In her late 20s at that time, the store

Zero + Maria Cornejo Pre-Fall 2020

A recent trip to the Middle East inspired designer Maria Cornejo. “I loved how the girl’s dressed,” she said at a private appointment in her showroom. “The whole modesty thing, thinking about what you don’t see.”
It had her meditating on “the elements of layering,” a spirit she poured into her latest offering, finding new ways to remix pieces. A black long-sleeve top under a caftan and pant in a botanical jacquard underscored the concept, and could work in either a day or night setting.
Her separates — asymmetrical tops, cocoon coats, wide-leg pants — felt like puzzle pieces to be mixed and matched, creating different silhouettes and forms, each offering Cornejo’s sensual ideas on protection.
Fabric — ever the key to understanding her work — came in airy linens, organic cottons and recycled polyester, and with a continued focus on responsibility: Cornejo uses sustainable textiles whenever possible, and is dedicated to local production and reducing her carbon footprint, with 84 percent of the collection being made in New York City, and shipped in compostable packaging.
She has her eye on warm weather events, too, with soft tailoring on suiting, some with jacquards — great for a summer wedding or an evening soiree under

Chanel Sponsors Jean-Luc Godard Retrospective in Paris

NOUVELLE VAGUE: Following creative director Virginie Viard’s spring collection for Chanel, inspired by French New Wave movie stars such as Jean Seberg, the fashion house is sponsoring a retrospective of director Jean-Luc Godard at the Cinémathèque Française.
“Tout Godard,” set to run from Jan. 8 to March 1, will feature classics such as “Breathless,” “Contempt” and “Pierrot le Fou.” Anna Karina, who starred in Godard films including “A Woman Is a Woman,” “Band of Outsiders” and “Alphaville,” is expected to be the guest of honor on the opening night.
Chanel noted the retrospective marks the 60th anniversary of the release of “Breathless,” starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Seberg. In a neat piece of synergy, Kristen Stewart, a Chanel brand ambassador, portrays the American actress who died at the age of 40 in the upcoming “Seberg,” due to hit U.S. screens on Friday.
“This partnership is an opportunity for the house of Chanel to reaffirm its close ties with cinema and the special relationships with certain film directors and actresses that were initiated by Gabrielle Chanel in the 1930s,” it said in a statement on Thursday.

Ratajkowski also posted a selfie on Instagram showing off her message with the caption: “Today Harvey Weinstein and his former studio made a $ 25 million deal with his victims.

Narciso Rodriguez RTW Fall 2020

Last fall, Narciso Rodriguez created a coat shape with a shorter sleeve, just a simple tweak, he thought it wasn’t for everyone. It ended up being one of his most popular pieces. Fall 2020 sees him again remixing outwear; this time a trenchcoat with built-in cape. It did double duty as a dress or a piece of outerwear.
“If we are making a coat today,” he said at an intimate appointment in his showroom, “it should be a very special piece.” And special it was.
With Rodriguez, there is always a relationship on how his clothes relate to the body. Some examples, an A-line skirt with asymmetric hem made from different types of fabric panels, or a sharply cut maroon blazer over a caramel-colored shirtdress with a twisted knot at the waist. It’s the quiet pragmatism of carefully crafted pieces that his customer comes back to season after season.
Much of the offering felt timeless, like the mix of sportswear separates that could inject some soft tailoring into a wardrobe.
His color palette leaned on neutral tones, but with a few splashes of color. A mossy green long sleeve V-neck shirtdress, with darts down the front and a handkerchief hem skirt or a red-ish short-sleeve

Francesco Trapani on Tiffany & Co., the Evolution of Luxury

MILAN — Francesco Trapani doesn’t believe in chief executive officers over the age of 65.
“Of course we can’t generalize but the concept of a ceo is similar to that of a professional athlete, who usually can’t do competitive sports for that many years. That’s the same for a job so stressful as the ceo,” said the former Bulgari and LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton executive, marking the starting point of a lively panel he hosted on Thursday in Milan as part of a series of talks staged by Italian daily paper Corriere della Sera.
Trapani’s attendance at the event came a fortnight after his exit from Tiffany & Co. board, following the jewelry company’s acquisition by LVMH in a blockbuster $ 16.2 billion deal — an operation that was evidently high up on the panel’s agenda.
“My resignation from the board has nothing to do with the deal but it’s due to personal reasons, because there are rules you have to respect when you are a member of a board of an American public company…and I would have been forbidden to pursue some personal projects I cared about,” he said.
“So absolutely there’s no dissent at all. Tiffany & Co. is such an extraordinary

Emanuel Ungaro Inks New Men’s Wear License

PARIS — Emanuel Ungaro has a new men’s wear licensee, and its first collection produced by Italian company GST Srl will bow at Pitti Uomo in January.
Part of Toma Italian Brands, a newly created entity owned by brothers Salvatore and Sergio Toma and based in Sava in southeast Italy, GST will manufacture and distribute men’s ready-to-wear and sportswear designed by Ungaro’s creative director for men’s wear Philippe Paubert.
“With this new collaboration, Emanuel Ungaro intends to reinforce its leadership in the premium contemporary men’s wear segment with a positioning of affordable luxury,” Ungaro said in a statement.
The brand’s women’s collections have been designed by an in-house studio following a tumultuous period that saw the departure of creative director Marco Colagrossi in April 2018.
The house subsequently parted ways with Roy Luwolt, who designed shoes for Ungaro via a license with Malone Souliers and briefly extended the agreement to the women’s rtw line.

Tom Ford Taking His Runway on the Road

Tom Ford is taking his next runway show on the road — to Los Angeles.
The designer, director and red-carpet king will show his fall 2020 collection on Feb. 7, two nights before the Oscars.
“The decision to show in February in Los Angeles feels very natural to me. It is my home and has a strong impact on the way that I live and work within both the fashion and film worlds,” Ford said. “This year, the New York Fashion Week calendar exactly overlaps Oscar weekend, and the last time that happened I showed in L.A. and it worked quite well. There is an excitement in L.A. on that particular weekend and the relationship between film and fashion is a strong one. In my role as chairman of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, my main intent and priority is to globalize and bring attention to American fashion. There is truly no bigger or more prominent stage in the world at any given time than Los Angeles during the Academy Awards.”
Still, the decision for Ford to go west comes as a bit of a surprise, since the CFDA so far has been focused on bolstering New York Fashion Week, and

Akris Pre-Fall 2020

Often at Akris, there is an artistic connection layered throughout designer Albert Kriemler’s work. But for pre-fall it’s about a celebration. This season is Kriemler‘s 40th year at the helm of the brand’s design.
To mark the millstone, he crafted a collection of signature pieces full of the house codes he has developed over the last four decades. It shaped up to be a greatest hits collection, not about archival pieces but rather some new versions of staple ideas of the house.
The materials are one such staple he has evolved over the years: Horsehair details on a double-faced gilet, a printed top with pajama pants with a revived Seventies print from Kriemler’s father, a coat suit with a sleek pant in an extra light wool, and some technical fabrics which were used on a mix of pieces.
Daywear took the focus, with a mix of suiting and dress shapes, but there were some intriguing evening ideas, too, like a monochromatic number made up of a green double-breasted sequined blazer paired with a leather pant.
One look that was a real celebratory piece was a black evening gown with a skirt made of a square grid of St. Gallen embroidery.
The lineup was decidedly autumnal

Take a Sneak Peek at the Newest International Best Dressed List

RUM ROLL PLEASE: The International Best Dressed List will be revealed in its entirety before the crack of dawn Saturday morning via Graydon Carter’s digital weekly Air Mail.
The roster will have five categories this time around – Women, Men, Couples, Fashion Professionals and Hall of Fame. There are 10 women, 10 men and 10 Fashion  Professionals who made the cut, and two new inductees for the Hall of Fame.
Some of the winners include “Big Little Lies” actress Zoe Kravtiz for Women: pop star Harry Styles for Men; Vogue alum-turned-free-agent at Managament + Artists Tonne Goodman and designer Thom Browne for Fashion Professionals, and the ever-stylish Queen Letizia of Spain for the Hall of Fame newcomer. There is no ranking for the list, but readers will learn who received the most votes for each category.
Kravitz’s laissez-faire style may be ingrained from her parents – actress Lisa Bonet and musician Lenny Karvaitz. Zoe Kravitz has much to celebrate as of late. She was nominated for a Golden Globe award Monday for her role in the Reese Witherspoon-produced HBO series. Kravitz rang in her 31stbirthday earlier this month and she married Karl Glusman at her father’s Paris apartment last summer. For her rehearsal

BFC Takes Men’s Brands to Milan in Deal With Italy’s Camera della Moda

LONDON — With question marks still hovering over Brexit and British citizens voting today in a key general election, the British Fashion Council is forging even closer ties with its counterparts on the Continent and taking a slice of London Fashion Week Men’s to Milan.
On Thursday, the BFC will announce a collaboration with Italy’s Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana that will see a series of events take place from Jan. 11 to 13 during Milan Fashion Week Men’s. Instead of showing in London, A-Cold-Wall will stage its fall 2020 runway show at the Palazzo del Ghiaccio.
Alexander McQueen, which has staged men’s presentations in both London and Milan in the past, will return to the Italian city on Jan. 12. Stella McCartney will continue showcasing her men’s collection in Milan, this time with appointments at the brand’s showroom rather than an event.
Additionally, there are plans for other London men’s labels to  take part in a London Show Rooms art installation at Spazio Savona 56.
The BFC and the Camera also plan to invite British and Italian labels that share a special affiliation with London to a cocktail for Italian fashion manufacturers and textile companies.

La Perla Turns 65 in Style

NEW YORK — La Perla continues to age gracefully.
For its 65th birthday, the luxury Italian lingerie brand celebrated with a plethora of fresh flowers, white candles and influencers, all of which overflowed the tiny West Village eatery Caffe Dante Wednesday for a lunch hosted by Spanish fashion designer Gala González. 
“We share the same values,” González told WWD, regarding her affinity for La Perla. “We like elegant, yet timeless pieces.”
González, who launched her first collection, a line of resortwear, six months ago, said she wanted to throw a party for both La Perla and friends, all of whom she said share similar qualities: effortlessly elegant and sexy. 
The guest list included model Tali Lennox, visual artists Conie Vallese and Chloe Wise, actress Sasha Frolova, jewelry designer Jenny Walton, art director Madelynn Furlong, D.J. Claire-Marie Rutledge and influencers like Cipriana Quann and Sofia Sanchez de Betak. 
“They’re women who don’t try too hard,” González explained. 
That includes the designer, who was wearing a sheer lace La Perla top — sans bra. 
“I’m almost naked, but not naked,” she said. “I went for it. I just grabbed some nipple covers and was ready to go. It’s kind of out of my comfort zone — wearing a

Max Mara Pre-Fall 2020

Inspired by both the recent publication of Debbie Harry’s “Face It: A Memoir” autobiography and Marlborough Contemporary’s “Selected Works From the Collection of Holly Solomon 1968-1981” exhibition, Max Mara creative director Ian Griffiths said for pre-fall he thought about the contribution of women to the New York art and club scene between the late Seventies and early Eighties.
This reflection led him to choose Harry and Studio 54’s iconic superstar Bianca Jagger, as the muses who inspired his concise, focused collection, which was centered on revisited essentials for special occasions.
Perfectly aware of the needs of the Max Mara women, “who are not those planning their looks far ahead, but who like to have the right range of pieces they can easily mix and match without thinking too much,” as Griffiths explained, the designer injected a feminine yet sassy twist into iconic staples.
In particular, for the first time, he explored the world of ruffles, which he used to pepper a wide range of items, spanning from a black pencil skirt worn with a Max Mara iconic camel coat and the blazer of a soft tailored white suit to the elegant lightweight taffeta designs. These included a trench coats with slightly puffy sleeves,

CFDA Creates Supply Chain Collective as New Member Courtesy

The Council of Fashion Designers of America is looking to give its members more bang for their buck. The organization has established the Supply Chain Collective — an ensemble of eight companies that offer innovative supply chain solutions.
The CFDA will circulate information about the Supply Chain Collective to members beginning early next week and will help facilitate relationships between design houses and the supply chain firms.
The initiative is being overseen by CFDA program manager Cal McNeil, who said the collective represents a shift for the CFDA, which has “historically focused production initiatives around New York City manufacturing in the Garment District. The supply chain is increasingly critical to a brand’s success and is the foundational level of their business — we are giving designers connections and tangible resources to keep that foundation safe and sound.”
The Supply Chain Collective’s initial participants include ApparelMagic, a Florida-based inventory management firm; Arch & Hook from New Jersey, which offers sustainable hangers; Bergen Logistics, also from New Jersey, assists with distribution and fulfillment logistics; KEDIC Fashion Workshop in New York helps brands expand their sizing to become more inclusive; New York artisan sourcing firm, Nest; SwatchOn from South Korea, which works on fabric sourcing and

Merlette Pre-Fall 2020

For pre-fall, designer Marina Cortbawi is debuting her largest Merlette collection to date. Over time, she’s evolved what was once a smaller selection of flounced cotton dresses into a rounded-out selection of ready-to-wear, which now includes knitwear and tailored wool offerings. 
The works of Lee Krasner, whose whose exhibition Cortbawi had seen while traveling to London, influenced a palette of rouge red, ultramarine blue and lavender grounded by black, white, damson purple and sand. Her new knits came in three weights: a long Italian merino bouclé cardigan, a selection of washable, eco-friendly cotton options and a medium weight alpaca blended wool selection that included a plush turtleneck, crewneck with sleeve details that referenced the brand’s continued eyelet patterns and a tiered cardigan (each offered in various colorways). All three groupings were exquisite, especially when layered over her English-influenced houndstooth suiting (a must-have pleated short and cropped blazer). The designer’s English references even extended into her look-book shoot and short film for the collection.
An ankle-length, lavender silk cotton gown with ruched details felt new, and proved standout, for the season while easy-meets-elegant updates to her flowing offerings melded elegance and ease. For instance, silk organza and cotton poplin dresses with gingham embroidery

Tory Burch Hosts Book Party for Arthur Elgort

Tuesday evening, Tory Burch hosted dear friend Arthur Elgort at her Tory Sport store on Fifth Avenue to celebrate the release of the famed photographer’s book, “I Love…” with a cocktail party. To coincide with the release a display of Elgort’s photographs from the book have been mounted to the walls of the store, where they will be displayed through the end of the year.
“Arthur is probably just one of my favorite photographers of all time — and a friend,” Burch said from inside the store. “He shot me once with my boys, and it’s my favorite picture that ever happened. He’s just such an incredible person. I couldn’t be more thrilled [to host the party].”
In addition to the personal photograph, another favorite of hers is a shot of three people walking, which made it onto the Tory Sport wall display.
“I don’t even know who they are, maybe two models and a third person, but it’s just the movement and emotion,” Burch explained. “I mean, I love all of his work. If you look at the way he’s captured people it’s pretty extraordinary.”

Karlie Kloss and Shantell Martin Join Forces to Encourage Girls to Pursue Coding

BREAKING THE CODE: Karlie Kloss and artist Shantell Martin have joined forces to empower coders.
The British artist has designed a limited-edition hoodie imprinted with various coding symbols that will benefit the nonprofit Kode With Klossy. The $ 52.50 item is being sold on the group’s site and all of the profits will go back to the organization. A spokeswoman for the project declined to specify how many units will be sold. While many recognize Kloss from her runway turns or role on “Project Runway,” others know her as an advocate for coding. Martin, who has known Kloss for a couple of years, is also deep into coding and technology. The pair connected through a mutual friend Casey Neistat.
“I remember the first time Karlie and I were talking years ago, we were talking about codes and all these things. Fast forward a few years, it just seems like a nice fit. I get to bring the art and creativity side into an area that I’m already invested in and that I have an interest in,” Martin said Wednesday.

Dundas Pre-Fall 2020

Peter Dundas is continuing to build a strong image for his namesake line, adding new layers — and categories — to his sensual and unapologetic style.
A master of eveningwear attire, season after season, the designer is proving his commitment in pushing his fashion lexicon forward, embracing more daywear options.
For the 11th collection of his label, he was inspired by the New Romantic movement, which lent a new voice to his signature inclination toward the Seventies’ aesthetics.
Inspired by his London headquarters located at the Island recording studios, the designer infused the lineup with references to signature looks of music icons, including Duran Duran and Adam and the Ants. This approach reflected in key pieces, such as admiral coats and vests to be worn over ruffled baroque blouses with metallic stripes.
Nautical elements also defined his glossy and hyper-feminine looks. A chic pattern of ropes was splashed on long dresses and one-shoulder frocks, often styled with matching bandanas and suede thigh-high boots oozing Seventies Boho vibes. The same attitude resonated into an intricate underwater motif of corals rendered on long frilled skirts, puffed-sleeved tops and breezy midi frocks with ruffled hems.
Expanding his product offering with a more quotidian appeal, Dundas introduced denim that

Atelier Caito for Hervé Pierre Takes a Personalized Approach to Building a Business

Instead of trying to be everything to everyone, Atelier Caito for Hervé Pierre takes a more measured approach to fashion.
Two years into the business, founders Nicolas Caito and Hervé Pierre are concentrated on building relationships and specialty store distribution with Bergdorf Goodman and others. A few daytime dresses and Italian-made knitwear are new additions to the predominantly American-made collection. A sleeveless viscose and stretch dress offers an opening retail price point of $ 1,595, which is $ 300 lower than last season’s opening price point. More about wardrobe building than anything else, the item is meant to be easy to pack and versatile, whereas the label’s evening looks require more handwork and subsequently higher prices.
During a preview Tuesday at their atelier, the two founders and Caito’s wife, Camille Caito-Tetard, who serves as chief operating officer, said inroads are being made in China, Russia and Canada. They noted that new stores are intent on finding labels that are not available anywhere else so that their businesses are destinations or by-appointment only. “For us, it’s about the relationships and your brand cannot be found everywhere. It’s a luxury,” said Pierre, adding that they have declined offers to sell their collection in select cities where

Sachin & Babi Pre-Fall 2020

Sachin & Babi fills a niche space in the world of occasion dressing. They offer a young and undeniably diverse range of styles, but what really sets them apart is affordability and extended sizing with quality fashionable product.
They’re known mainly for evening options and have been working steadfastly to pivot into dressy day options, as well. Along the way, designers Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia have found their customers are really Southern belle types: girls who take pride in dressing up and enjoy a level of playfulness.
Pre-fall was all about textures, prints and surface design. The designers played around with Moroccan tiles, engineering six prints from antique tiles sourced at flea markets. Fortuitously, they’ll be heading to Morocco over Christmas break for Sachin’s parents’ 50th anniversary celebration, so it’s a safe bet similar inspiration might appear in foreseeable collections. The tile prints themselves had range, from completely new to vintage-inspired and reminiscent of archival prints — and set upon dresses and separates perfect for a summer soiree. Day looks included a blazer, halter dress and puff-sleeved blouse all cut with a Seventies hand, while one standout fitted gown with beaded neckline was geared strictly for night.

CEO Talks: Loewe’s Pascale Lepoivre on Cerebral Whimsy and a Billion-Euro ‘Ambition’

Some things take time. Loewe’s entry into the U.S. retail fray, for example. On Tuesday night, the brand opened its first U.S. flagship, on Greene Street in New York’s SoHo.
The retail arrival only took 175 years (give or take a failed Eighties effort). It’s part of the plan installed by chief executive officer Pascale Lepoivre, who took the helm in 2016 after nine years at Celine. While much of Loewe’s business is done within its 130 stores — up by a modest count of 10 since her arrival — she sees that network as more than a series of transactional centers. “We ultimately consider physical stores as media, a communication tool…the best, most complete way to show what we are, because it’s not obvious,” she says.
Loewe is in an interesting position. Since his arrival in 2013, creative director Jonathan Anderson has created for it a sophisticated, craft-based artful identity. Yet while he and his exquisite work quickly achieved insider-fashion acclaim, according to the ceo, the brand “still has low awareness beyond the fashion circles,” particularly in the United States. Among her goals: increasing awareness without sacrificing Loewe’s distinctive cerebral quirkiness.
To that end, she has identified a handful of key cities around the world ripe

Mary Beth Blake Leaves Tailored Brands as Losses Mount in Third Quarter

The changes continue to come fast and furiously at Tailored Brands, with Mary Beth Blake, a longtime company executive who served most recently as president of the Jos. A. Bank Clothiers division, exiting the corporation.
In reporting lower third-quarter results Wednesday afternoon, the Fremont, Calif.-based retailer said the divisional president role has been eliminated and Carrie Ask, who had been president of the Men’s Wearhouse and Moores division, has been named to the newly created position of chief customer officer.
“We believe the new structure heightens our focus and ability to unlock value across our brand portfolio and will enable us to show up for our customers in more effective and efficient ways,” said chief executive officer Dinesh Lathi. “After more than a decade of impactful leadership at Tailored Brands, Mary Beth Blake, brand president, Jos. A. Bank, is resigning from the company. We are immensely grateful for everything Mary Beth has done to enhance our performance and we wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

Unknwn x Thom Browne to Launch Dec. 15

Thom Browne has revealed a bit more about his capsule collection with the Miami-based retailer Unknwn.
Late Wednesday, the designer said the nine-piece apparel and accessories collection will launch on Dec. 15 and be centered around a full set hoodie-and-short combination that he described as “timeless sport meets neo-court style.” The collection will feature Browne’s signature four-bar stripe and classic athletic details and include sweatsuits updated with an exclusive Japanese 100 percent mesh with contrasting piping details.
The collection will also offer a custom color of the single strap athletic slide sandal shape — a first for the Thom Browne brand. The shoe is a key wardrobe staple for the cofounders of Unknwn — LeBron James, Jaron Kanfer and Frankie Walker — and feature the designer’s four-bar laundry tag label across the top with a molded rubber footbed and rubber sole made in Italy.

Thom Browne’s capsule is colorful and sports-centric. 

Other accessories include white athletic socks, a baseball cap and a belt bag in red micro ripstop nylon with red pebble grain leather handles, brass hardware and a red, white, and blue belt.
As reported, Browne confirmed in October that he was partnering with the fashion and footwear retailer but provided no further details.

Fendi Pre-Fall 2020

According to Silvia Venturini Fendi, today’s women want to feel comfortable and sensual at the same time. They have the power to be what they want to be without renouncing their femininity.
“This collection was designed from a female point of view, by a woman talking to women and I think this is clearly reflected in the femininity we portrayed: more languid, more sensual,” said the designer, who last September unveiled her first solo runway show after the death of Fendi’s former women’s wear creative director Karl Lagerfeld.
Venturini Fendi’s intentions translated beautifully in her lineup, which, in keeping with the brand’s strategy aimed at creating consistency season after season, further explored elements already present in the spring show. These included an overall sense of bedroom-like coziness seen in the alluring quilted motifs and tactile textures.
In fact, quilting, as well as delicate micro ruffles, created a contrast with the tailored austerity of gray flannel, crafted in both sweet mini frocks and blazers paired with frilled dresses.
Playing with illusions, a corduroy effect was rendered on the soft suede of cropped flared pants and front-buttoned midi skirts — all exuding a refreshed Seventies appeal, underlined by the new Fendi ID cross-body gusset style. These

EXCLUSIVE: Moncler Launches Bio-Based Down Jacket

BON-CLER: Moncler is upping the ante of his commitment into sustainability by introducing a new bio-based and carbon-neutral down jacket.
Offered in a single navy shade, the unisex style is made with plant-based fabrics and accessories. In particular, the fabric, lining, buttons and zips all derive from castor beans, a raw material that allows for a 30 percent reduction of CO2 emissions compared to a fossil origin source.
The castor plant itself is a sustainable and renewable source since it does not affect food supply and agriculture as it is cultivated in arid regions and requires extremely small amounts of water to grow.
Finishes of the down jacket, such as inside labels, are made in cotton while the logo appearing on the frontal pocket is rendered in wool.
To further heighten its attention toward the environment and biodiversity, the company has offset the emissions generated throughout the whole life cycle of the down jacket through REDD+ certified projects — which are focused on preserving the Amazon rainforest — consequentially making the bio-based style carbon neutral.
The item will be available starting from today in Moncler stores globally and on the company’s e-commerce with a price tag of 1,300 euros.
This project follows the recent introduction of

Emporio Armani Pre-Fall 2020

For his Emporio Armani pre-fall collection, Giorgio Armani revised his signature soft take on the sartorial tradition with a young, laid-back and sometimes ironic attitude.
Playing with proportions, he cut a jacket short and boxy to refresh the image of the classic tuxedo, which included pleated, fluid pants, while he crafted another suit in a feminine blazer with the waist highlighted by a cummerbund-inspired inlaid detail, from a comfortable stretch black velvet.
Workwear inspired the silhouette and the embellishments of a velvet jumpsuit cinched at the waist with a thick belt and a pop feel was injected in a gray wrap dress splashed with an allover motif of sketched hot pink sunglasses. The pattern returned in a micro version on a draped blouse tucked into a ruffled miniskirt, its feminine attitude creating a charming balance with the mannish appeal of a knitted blouson.
Classic tailoring patterns, including Prince of Wales, checks and houndstooth, sometimes mixed and matched, exalted the sartorial elegance of the lineup, which also had more glamorous options, such as a long-sleeve minidress embroidered with sequins creating a black-and-white damier pattern.

Bridget Foley’s Diary Fabien Baron: Creativity by the Book

Coffee-table book doesn’t say it. Nor does vanity project, though by its author’s own assessment, “FB Fabien Baron Works, 1983-2019” is a nontraditional self-portrait.
Certainly, the tome, published this fall by Phaidon, is a 400-plus page exploration of the legendary creative director’s psyche, its lavish pages resonant with meaning that runs as deep as the viewer/reader wants to delve into (or project onto) Baron’s personality. It is also a rich visual history of fashion over the past 30 years, both the fashion of fashion, and its intersect with the broader culture. Finally, it is a creative masterwork. Anyone who fancies powerful imagery will be intrigued. For serious creatives, its wealth of exquisite visuals provides diverse worlds to get lost in and, more pragmatically, lesson after lesson on what makes compelling imagery — concept, color use, composition — whether the subject is as simple as the plainest fragrance bottle or as complicated as a densely populated convocation of young-and-beautiful types engaged in wanton revelry.
The book opens with a forward by Baron’s friend and frequent collaborator Kate Moss. In a lovely piece, she credits him with hiring her for her “first real shoot,” with photographer Patrick Demarchelier, and with introducing her to Calvin

Behind the Seams: Costumes for New York City Ballet’s ‘The Nutcracker’

What would “The Nutcracker” be without its pink tutus and illustrative sweets? The annual festive production is now under way at New York City Ballet, where it takes a staff of nearly 50 to craft and maintain the hundreds of intricate costumes required for George Balanchine’s holiday-season staple. WWD paid the company’s costume atelier a visit to see how they get it done.
Each year the city ballet’s in-house costume shop sees a mad dash in the lead-up to “The Nutcracker’s” five-week run at Lincoln Center, where the production is staged about 50 times. The task is one of historical reverence, as the company still uses original designs devised in 1954 by Balanchine’s chosen costumer Barbara Karinska, calling for some 150 looks with a cast ranging from ages eight into the mid-40s.
While ballet’s cascade of holiday-treat-inspired characters — hot chocolate, marzipan, candy canes and tea — appear effortless onstage, they require a taskmaster to see that they all get done. Enter Marc Happel, city ballet’s costume director who manages the shop’s tricks of the trade. That light pink tutu skirt? There’s actually “layers of flesh tulle, beige and layers of another pink underneath which gives it more depth,” Happel explained. An

Dior Pre-Fall 2020

Maria Grazia Chiuri has little truck with the cliché of the fashion designer as tortured artist. It’s a myth that’s particularly prevalent in Paris, where more than one creative has imploded on the job.
“In France, there was this idea to promote the couturier with this romantic image more close to a painter, less with a designer,” she mused, surrounded by racks of clothing in Dior’s showroom in Paris.
Since taking over a house known for some of the most theatrical catwalk shows in recent history, the Italian designer has been taking the opposite tack, turning out clothes that make cash registers sing — even if some critics have bemoaned her approach as too safe.
If anything, Chiuri is doubling down with her pre-fall collection, which feels like an extension of 30 Montaigne, the capsule collection of wardrobe essentials she introduced this year that are designed to linger in women’s closets.
“The idea of fashion is that it has to create surprise, it has to give you emotion. I want to give emotion but at the same time, I think that we have to be consistent and we have to create pieces that are not only seasonal pieces,” she explained.

Adam Lippes RTW Pre-Fall 2020

Adam Lippes is quietly making some of the most interesting clothes in New York. He’s building his brand his way, slowly, with careful deliberation that includes ample interface with customers. Lippes makes no bones that his is a largely American business, and he travels the country visiting stores. “It’s maybe the one thing I’ve done that separates me from my compatriots — spending that time,” he said during a showroom appointment. “I hear what she wants, what works.” Yet he indulges organic, gut-feeling moments, even in his approach to certain essential decisions. Is the upcoming fall season the right time for his first real runway show? Lippes thinks so, and expects to claim a Saturday morning slot.
His pre-fall collection perfectly exemplifies the subtle power of his clothes. Lippes isn’t a theme guy, though if anything, he’s inspired by interiors, whether an old wallpaper pattern from his childhood home or the lace edges of vintage linen napkins, here reconfigured as pointy collars popping out from otherwise unadorned cashmere sweaters. Yet several larger defining threads ran through his lineup. Overarching and constant from season to season: the attitude of the clothes. Lippes isn’t chasing kids. He knows who can afford to buy

Hermès to Show Resort 2021 in London

Hermès is joining the itinerant set. Creative director Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski will show her upcoming resort collection in London; the news was revealed with characteristic pith on Monday morning. “Hermès is pleased to announce that its resort 2021 collection will be presented in London on April 28, 2020,” the brand offered, giving no other details, including the specific location or why pre-season wanderlust has suddenly kicked in after years of discretion. Until now, Hermès has done only small resort shows in its Faubourg Saint-Honoré store.
Now it looks as if the storied luxury purveyor will open the season — and early, to boot. Typically, the whirlwind starts the first week of May. As of now, pending date confirmation of Giorgio Armani’s show in Dubai, Hermès will kick off the very worldly resort 2021 tour, which — following London — will move on to Capri for Chanel on May 7 and near the end, to St. Petersburg for Max Mara on May 25. These shows are marketing bonanzas for the brands, and that has extended to their location announcements. So much so that several brands have turned the notice of “where” into a two-part affair. Gucci will show somewhere in the U.S. on

Sebastian Suhl to Exit Valentino

BYE-BYE VALENTINO: Sebastian Suhl will leave Valentino at the end of January, WWD has learned.
Suhl joined the couture house in January 2018 as managing director of global markets, reporting to chief executive officer Stefano Sassi.
Before Valentino, Suhl was chief executive officer of Marc Jacobs International, which he left after a three-year stint, during which he was charged with, among other things, readying the house for an initial public offering. Suhl spearheaded the elimination of the Marc by Marc Jacobs label launched in 2000, consolidating the signature brand, focusing on accessories and tightening the label’s vertical retail footprint.
Suhl arrived at Marc Jacobs in 2014 from Givenchy, at a moment of profound change for the brand as Jacobs had just wrapped up his 16-year stint at Louis Vuitton and was set to focus solely on his namesake label.
Suhl joined Givenchy in 2012 after an 11-year career at Prada Group, and saw the Milan-based company go through a lengthy process to publicly list. Prada eventually launched its IPO on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2011. At Prada, Suhl was promoted to ceo in the Asia-Pacific region in 2005 and then named group chief operating officer in 2009, reporting to ceo Patrizio Bertelli, and heading the retail,

Brandon Maxwell Pre-Fall 2020

Sometimes fashion is about careful consideration and sometimes it’s about impulse. On Friday, as he was readying his pre-fall for retailers, a lightbulb turned on for Brandon Maxwell, illuminating the fact that, for the first time, he should show the collection to press.
A couple of e-mails later — done. Why the sudden change of routine? Maxwell’s brand is still young. He has only been shipping clothes to stores for four years, and past pre-seasons kind of left him a bit cold. “The clothes weren’t necessarily reflective of who I am or where I’m at,” he said during the hastily scheduled appointment. Feeling happy and empowered after his September runway show, Maxwell determined to transfer that buoyancy to this pre-fall effort. He set out to make a collection just of things he likes, period, no deeper resonance than that. Gathering his team, he told them, “Let’s just start with colors we like, with fabrics we like. Let’s not do anything other than just make what we like.”
Backing that up: daily direct online communication with his customer about what she likes, wants, needs. That includes daywear. Originally perceived as a red-carpet guy, Maxwell emphasized that his business is heavily weighted toward day,

The Attico Unveils Eco-Friendly Holiday Capsule

COOL AND GREEN: The Attico girl is a confident type indulging in the luxury of precious items — but she wants to be eco-friendly, too.
Founded in 2016 by Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio, the Italian women’s wear label is launching on Dec. 10 a holiday capsule collection exclusively available on the brand’s e-commerce platform comprising a range of items with sustainable features.
Nodding to the Eighties aesthetic that has become a brand’s signature, the lineup named “Call Me Back” includes six vintage fur coats crafted from mink, fox and martens that were reworked for a more contemporary silhouette, their linings and buttons overhauled. There are also three pairs of bejeweled stiletto pumps that were covered in pink, red and black Swarovski crystals’ leftovers.

To complement the offering, Tordini and Ambrosio teamed with eco-chic makeup line La Bouche Rouge, creating a matte cherry pink-hued lipstick contained in a plastic-free case made of vegan leather.

Gucci Pre-Fall 2020

Alessandro Michele is a designer who likes to develop consistent and elaborate narratives. Over the past few years he has proven that he doesn’t feel the need to jump from one message to another season after season. His pre-fall collection confirmed this signature attitude, defining Michele not only as a rule-breaker but also an authentic brand and image builder.
The spring 2020 show marked a turning point for the designer, who shifted his flamboyant, heady and madcap aesthetic into more restrained and simpler territories.
“The pre-fall 2020 collection is the next chapter after the September show. It tells the same story about proportion, silhouette and, above all, the balance between shape and color,” said Michele, referring to the studied combination of fairly essential lines and eye-catching tones including, for example, the vibrant red of a streamlined Seventies leather suit, the bright orange of a polished cocoon cape and the vivid lime green of a double-breasted damier jacket with wide lapels matched with a cream-white pleated skirt and bold purple suede boots.
In keeping with his approach, the collection, which was photographed by Bruce Gilden, focused more on defining particular human characters rather than following more traditional merchandising formulas. This strategy helped convey that

Beyoncé Reveals First Look at Ivy Park Adidas Line

Beyoncé’s Ivy Park ath-leisure brand is back with a unisex collection.
The singer revealed on Instagram Monday pieces from her first collection with Adidas, which she decided will be unisex after seeing that men were also interested in the line.
The collection, which will be released on Jan. 18,  is the first for Beyoncé as the full owner of the Ivy Park brand.
She initially launched Ivy Park in 2016 with Topshop tycoon, Philip Green, but after a series of sexual assault allegations against him, Beyoncé bought back his shares in November 2018 to assume full ownership of the line. It was announced this April that she was teaming with Adidas to continue the Ivy Park brand.
Beyoncé opened up about the new collection for her Elle Magazine January 2020 cover story, stating that the new collection “incorporates my personal style and expands that to include something for everyone. I love experimenting with fashion, mixing high and low, sportswear with couture, even masculine and feminine. This new line is fun and lends itself to creativity, the ultimate power.”

Agnona Pre-Fall 2020

The Scandinavian elegance as portrayed by Finnish artist Helene Schjerfbeck served as the main inspiration for creative director Simon Holloway.
In particular, the designer looked at the painter’s portraits to create the collection’s signature crisscross neckline defining the essential, chic organic cotton shirts worn under impeccably crafted mannish suits, as well as the feminine, fluid dresses splashed with a wintery floral blossom.
An authentic sense of luxury minimalism took center stage in the lineup, where traditional silhouettes were peppered by special details, such as the knitted back inserts on suits and the leather touches on the lapels of soft tailored coats. Draping gave a dynamic attitude to a cashmere and silk fitted top, which was matched with a plissé skirt in fine wool.
Putting the focus on sustainability, this season the company introduced a new eco-friendly viscose and wool blend and stretch pants were crafted combining wool and recycled polyester. Agnona also replaced down feather and synthetic padding with layers of recycled cashmere.

Google to Foster Professional Artists With Creator Labs Initiative

Google wants to align itself with creators.
The tech giant is launching Creator Labs, an incubator for professional photographers, videographers, directors, YouTubers and artists. The initiative is meant to highlight the camera capabilities of Google’s Pixel 4 phone, aka the tool with which the creators are capturing content. The program also creates opportunity for Google to be a part of current and future social and cultural conversations.
“Our goal is to commission content that’s captured on Pixel 4, both photo and video, that is grounded in social impact and cultural narrative,” said Ava Donaldson, influencer manager at Google who oversees Google Pixel influencer activations. “It goes back to the DNA of what YouTube is, which is to nurture and give a platform to people that want to create content and artists on the rise.”
Creator Labs was formed in partnership with Lens, a division of IMG helmed by Steven Chaiken that seeks to represent visual artists in a forward-thinking way.
“We look to rethink and reimagine how artists should and can be represented and how we can be nurturing and fostering their creativity in the best possible way, especially with a rapidly changing content creation landscape,” explained Chaiken. Lens, he added, consists of a

Rosetta Getty Pre-Fall 2020

In 2016, Rosetta Getty became so fond of the sculpture works of contemporary artist Anna-Sophie Berger she had one of her delicate fabric works, “She Vanished,” installed in the entrance of her New York town house. Fast-forward to now, where the artist’s oeuvre stood as the prominent inspiration for Getty’s pre-fall 2020 collection.
While Berger’s tactile works minimally made its way into the ready-to-wear, her bold colorblocking seen in “Don’t Smoke” invigorated Getty’s palette and great moments of graphic layering (to note: the artist also photographed the collection in lieu of Getty’s traditional showroom installation during market). For instance, a graphic black-and-white gingham top and pant cleverly separated by a contrasting skirt layer of chili and aqua gingham. The brighter tones were used layered against each other (an appealing double-breasted suit set) or as tonal looks (Seventies-inspired poplin button-ups over matching poplin or bias-cut silk skirts). A slight nod to the Seventies ran throughout in an excellent buttery leather flared pant, romantic, floaty dresses and an easy leopard trenchcoat. 
Aside from ample leather offerings — which ranged from suiting to a strapless LBD — fabrics, and the general demeanor, were lighter than in the past, due to taking another look at seasonal

Phillip Lim and his partner and chief executive officer Wen Zhou chose to hold their 3.1 Phillip Lim pre-fall appointments for press and retailers at their store on Great Jones Street, a symbolic shift of venue for the brand. “The word is transformation,” Lim said.
Like many others in fashion, Lim has been reevaluating his working ways. “As a brand, we’ve been going through a shift in terms of what’s important to us, meaning a more conscious way of working. I call it ‘3.1 Sustainable Balance’ because it’s about giving the customer the promise of expanding her wardrobe while bringing in more sustainable clothes [produced in] a more sustainable way of working. At the end of the day, I have to make clothes. It’s about her wardrobe, so how do I give her an emotional reaction to it, and do it responsibly?”
To the latter point, Lim has been hyper-focused on materials, and said 60 percent of the fibers he used in this collection are sustainable — some natural, some recycled — a swift increase from the 18 percent he registered when he embarked on this path in 2018.

Victoria Tang on Restoring Shanghai Tang

HONG KONG — Victoria Tang was 10 years old when her father, the late Sir David Tang, launched Shanghai Tang, making the luxe Chinese label part and parcel of her childhood memories. The younger Tang often wore the clothing on important holidays, while her father, she recalled, wore it religiously.
“He would come to pick us up from school in his Bentley, with a cigar, in his cheongsam,” she said, referring to the traditional Chinese garment and a signature item of the house. “And I would just think, ‘Wow, he really wants to stand out from the crowd.’ I didn’t really understand why he was doing it, because back then you just wanted to blend in. Why can’t he just wear a suit like a normal person?”
The brand was one of the first to recognize that the Chinese would become the force for luxury consumption that it is now. Initially, Shanghai Tang rose quickly — just four years after launch, it was sold to the Swiss luxury group Compagnie Financière Richemont. But while it was able to accurately predict the boom in Chinese appetite and taste for luxury, Shanghai Tang was never quite able to fully capture it.

Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2020

“It’s about wardrobing,” said Jason Wu.
The designer’s pre-fall outing was born out of dualities, a trip he took to Houston where he got a private tour of an estate designed by architect Philip Johnson and decorated by the legendary couturier Charles James and the opposing forces of minimalism and maximalism.
“I myself have a little of those two sides,” he said, with a laugh.
Think a wild blue zebra print but on a sharply cut chic slipdress with bits of lace hanging out. It created a bit of tension between the loudness of the print and sensual details.
Languid dresses, sharp suiting, a V-neck white shirt with peasant sleeves, an asymmetrical wool sweater — all wardrobe builders but full of Wu’s idiosyncrasies. Another example: A rich sandy-colored trenchcoat with knife pleats on the back. These were pieces with subtle design twists that were fairly seasonless depending on one’s climate.
There were plays on texture and fabrications, too, like a forest green chunky knit paired with a clay colored suede skirt with a slit over the knee.
Wu sees the collection as an elevation for him; it was a concept that rang true. In the past he may have played with a bit of girlish charm,

De Fursac Opens First Store Abroad With Selfridges Pop-up in London

PARIS — Marking its first step to international expansion, De Fursac, the contemporary French tailoring specialist recently bought by SMCP Group, is opening a pop-up store in Selfridges in London on Monday. 
“It’s a brand that is defined less by fashion than by a certain coherence — a client will never feel like he’s made a mistake because the label suddenly veered off into a different direction,” said Elina Kousourna, who was recently named chief executive officer of the brand, which sells suits to young men embarking on their professional careers. In a joint interview with the label’s creative director Alix Le Naour, Kousourna spoke to WWD at a showroom in the label’s Paris headquarters, perched over a busy intersection in a northeast corner of the capital. 
Kousourna played a key role in the brand’s acquisition by SMCP, which was finalized in September. The group intends to apply the blueprint for growth it has developed for its contemporary Parisian labels Sandro, Maje and Claudie Pierlot, rapidly building a store network in Europe and Asia. 
The brand’s strong identity made it an ideal target for SMCP. Armed with financing generated by listing on the Paris stock market in 2017, the group has set out to

Savile Row Hosts Pop-up With Major British Names

BIG LOVE: British retailers and brands including Mr Porter, Trunk, Jimmy Choo, Sunspel, Richard James and Connolly have cleared out their cupboards, clothing racks, shops and showrooms for a charity sale that’s set to take place on Savile Row with prices that would put many a sample sale to shame.
After staging an impromptu sale last year that netted 75,000 pounds for the U.K. homeless charity Crisis, Anda Rowland of bespoke tailors Anderson & Sheppard and the men’s wear stylist and writer Tom Stubbs are preparing an encore this month.
In addition to lassoing many of Britain’s major men’s wear labels, the two have tapped media friends to donate press gifts, accessories, beauty products and fragrances, and to work the shop floor.

Tory Burch RTW Pre-Fall 2020

Some references are about more than an appealing visual on a mood board. Tory Burch has long been in awe of Amelia Earhart’s bravery, drive and fearlessness. At the same time, Burch considers the legendary aviator no slouch in the fashion realm. “I find her incredibly stylish,” the designer said during a showroom appointment, indicating a photo on said mood board in which Earhart works a librarian-esque kind of chic. In fact, Earhart’s pioneer tendencies were not confined to the wild blue yonder. She was also an early marketing maverick with a fashion lifestyle line sold at R.H. Macy.
Surely ample fodder for Burch, who loves to celebrate strong women. For pre-fall, she flew well with the inspiration in a collection reflective of Earhart’s casual polish and a waft of Forties panache while staying grounded in today’s demand for casual polish. (Yes, Earhart disappeared in 1937. Fashion is allowed liberties.) There was pragmatic discretion to the mostly neutral palette and relaxed silhouettes that combined easy tailoring and controlled fluidity. While a separates focus imbued a fresh sportswear sensibility, Burch often showed looks in suit-like matches — jacket, tunic, wide pants all in brown-and-beige stripes; denim blazer over pleated jeans; satin shirtdress

Dior Opens Pop-up Store in Cortina d’Ampezzo

LET IT SNOW: After popping up at seaside resorts last summer, Dior is heading to the slopes with a temporary store in high-end ski resort Cortina d’Ampezzo, in collaboration with Italian luxury retailer Franz Kraler.
The façade of the store, which opened on Friday, features Dior’s seasonal decoration of blue-and-gold baobab tress, inspired by creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri’s cruise collection show in Marrakech in April.

But the main feature of the boutique is the camouflage pattern that appears as a wall décor, as well as on items including a revisited Bar jacket, a small Book Tote bag embroidered with the name “Cortina,” and suitcases and backpacks from the DiorTravel line, available in select locations before its global launch in January.
Open until April, the Dior store on Corso Italia also carries designs by men’s wear creative director Kim Jones, and offers a personalization service for selected items such as Book Totes, Saddle bags and Walk ‘n’ Dior sneakers.

Dennis Basso Pre-Fall 2020

Pre-fall 2020 has Dennis Basso taking a romantic stroll in the garden.
While some of his contemporaries are loading up the season with summery fare, Basso has his feet firmly planted in the world of fall.
After 36 years in the business, Basso is fond of saying he’s dressed whole generations of families, and over the past few seasons he has taken strides to inject some youthful energy into his work. His fur handiwork delivered this point, with shorter evening coats, a wrap that could double as a scarf, and tiered chubbies. Overall, the fur lineup had cleaner silhouettes. Some were in cashmere fur, a new fabric for the brand.
His garden had florals, in prints and embellishments. One large flower print was blown out on a navy fabric, which was used on a section of pieces, from dresses to a few jackets, like a parka with cargo details and sporty zip-up details, it was lined with sheared mink inside, and nipped at the waist with a bungie-like chord. The style had a youthful, but still very uptown flare. His garden party continued on day dresses, cocktail frocks and ballgowns. Eveningwear came lightweight and airy.

Coach 1941 Pre-Fall 2020

Stuart Vevers is taking us all on a camping trip or, better yet, a glamping one. Taken with the idea of outdoor adventure, the designer put forth a pre-collection that blends a thread of sporty utility with the New York-centricity he began with spring.
He ran with the theme of “Big Apple Camp,” hitting on a narrative of outdoorsy urban dress for a trip to a rooftop garden or Central Park. Style codes drew reference from nostalgic childhood movies like “E.T.” to personal camping trips he took with his family in the late Seventies and early Eighties.
Silhouettes erred on the side of retro glam, including a flirty striped cardigan tucked into leather belted shorts; polos with elongated piqué collars; and a posh suede multipocket jacket paired with a soft skirt that had a playful apple print. The latter look was grounded by chunky heeled boots reminiscent of impractical campsite footwear Vevers saw as a kid. “The personal always creeps in there,” he mused during a walk-through.
He had fun elsewhere through a “Big Apple Camp” slogan printed in disco-era lettering and onto faded camp T-shirts with double collars, and positioned signature chambray button-downs against colorful, lightweight leather jackets that further expanded the brand’s leather

Rochas Parts Ways With Alessandro Dell’Acqua

PARIS — Rochas said on Friday it has parted ways with its women’s wear creative director Alessandro Dell’Acqua, who during his six-year tenure updated its couture heritage with his signature mix of glamorous embellishment and graphic tailoring.
Philippe Benacin, chairman and chief executive officer of Rochas parent company Inter Parfums SA, thanked the Italian designer for bringing a “feminine and sophisticated” vision to the historic French fashion house.
“Alessandro did a great performance by reestablishing Rochas as a French modern luxury house with its very colored style, full of details and involving a great attention to fabric,” he said in a statement.
Dell’Acqua, who also designs the No. 21 line shown in Milan, will unveil his last collection for Rochas in February 2020. The house plans to name his replacement at a later date.
The 56-year-old started his career in 1995 with a knitwear line called AA Milano, which later morphed into his signature line. After losing the use of his name and creative control of the brand in 2009, he returned the following year with No. 21, a premium contemporary line named after his birthday on Dec. 21.
He has also designed for La Perla, Borbonese, Malo, Brioni and Les Copains, and last year created

L’Agence Marks First Collab With Last Marilyn Monroe Photos

Jeff Rudes knows what his L’Agence shopper wants and feels the brand’s first collaboration featuring Marylin Monroe is the right note.
“Our customer is sophisticated and this speaks to her,” Rudes, cofounder and chief executive officer, said of a new limited collection of pieces featuring photos of Monroe by Bert Stern, a shoot that became famous as the actor’s last before her death. “A lot of our customers are 35 and up, she goes up to 70 years old, and she’s probably already familiar with Bert Sterns.”
But deciding on any collaboration, as it’s the very first for L’Agence, which Rudes cofounded in 2008 a few years after founding J Brand, was tricky.
“I was one of the first to do fashion collaborations at J Brand with Christopher Kane and Proenza Schouler, but L’Agence isn’t a jean brand, we’re a fashion brand, we’re lifestyle, so we’re limited in who we can collaborate with.”
In the end, Rudes approached the Bert Stern Trust and was given the ability to choose among any of his “Last Sitting” photos of Monroe. The most sought after of which are the photos Monroe struck an orange “x,” the photos she didn’t like, and that color and the “x” are

Red Valentino Pre-Fall 2020

There’s a new lady in town, and she’s painting the town red, Red Valentino that is. For the pre-fall season, the Red Valentino girl got a very cool, edgy update with all the masterful craftsmanship and house codes in tow. 
Inspired by the Eighties’ British clubbing and Nineties’ punk Riot Girls, whimsical, dreamy offerings felt fresh and rebellious in hot pink and red, layered with fabulous leather jackets and pants, acid-wash denim, faux-fur shaggy jackets and graphic logo or leopard-print offerings. Cocktail shakers were aplenty, beaming retro prom, but in a modern aspiration way. For instance, a bubblegum-pink corseted tulle mini topped with hot pink leather biker jacket. Signature romantic bows were more undone, and offered in an acid green color, eccentrically topping off blouses or turned into playful earrings. The collection felt entirely right for the Red Valentino woman, but with more zest and unapologetic style than before.

Lanvin Fetes 130 Years With Capsule and Shanghai Exhibition

SHANGHAI — Lanvin is stepping firmly back into the spotlight.
After some troubled years in which the luxury label saw upheaval on both its creative and business ends, the French house is celebrating its 130th birthday in style. With the backing of new Chinese owner Fosun International, it debuted a large exhibition here on Friday at the Fosun Foundation in a major weekend for the house that also feted a new flagship store and release of a capsule collection.
The exhibition, titled “Dialogues,” is open to the public until Feb. 9, and presents 75 pieces from the Lanvin archives dating from the house’s founding in 1889 to the present day. It’s also the first such event put on by the brand that highlights not just founder Jeanne Lanvin’s work but its creative directors through time, from Alber Elbaz to current designer Bruno Sialelli, who was installed last January. Highlights include the wedding gown of the founder’s daughter, Marguerite Lanvin, and the costumes of various stage and film actors the house clothed, some of which are being presented for the first time to the public.
While many brands present exhibitions in pure chronological fashion, curator Judith Clark wanted the outfits from Lanvin’s different designer

Aubade Taps Chinese Artist Hong Wai for Capsule Collection

LINGERIE ART: French lingerie brand Aubade is looking east.
The label, owned by Swiss company Calida, has tapped Chinese artist Hong Wai for a capsule collection of eight pieces for fall 2020.
“She might not be a famous name, but she has a strong narrative,” said Martina Brown, deputy managing director of Aubade, in reference to the brand’s previous collaboration with design duo Viktor & Rolf. “The overall trend today is to look for emotional values, so for us it was important to be able to tell a real story.”
Born in Shanghai and based between Paris and Macau, Wai paints contemporary interpretations of Chinese ink paintings with a feminine touch: the traditional art form has usually been dominated by male artists.
Instead of the usual landscapes, the artist has chosen to focus her work on the feminine form and the art of lingerie. “As soon as I came across her work, I knew that she would be the perfect fit for Aubade,” Brown said.

The conception of the collection started with Wai’s swirling hand-painted motifs, which were turned into lace embroideries by a Swiss manufacturer. The illustrations were transposed on four bras, three briefs and a nightgown

Lafayette 148 Pre-Fall 2020

For Lafayette 148’s pre-fall collection, creative director Emily Smith pushed aside an overarching, thematic idea and welcomed seasonal sensibility. While her usual muses of artists and their works were not at the forefront, artful ideas made their way into the collection, à la hand-painted florals and an Indian-summeresque palette. For instance, an easy tan dress with poufed sleeves covered in white blooms that felt perfect for high summer; ditto to a matching pant paired with nubby basket-weave inspired sweater, an unlined, breezy blazer and sleek topcoat. 
No matter the summer occasion, the collection had it — a tiered and pleated pale emerald colored dress or bronzed orange silk charmeuse skirt set for weddings; clean, earth-toned suiting for the office and poplin tops and dresses with rounded, poufed sleeves for everything in between. The collection held plenty of versatility, as in a grouping of striped options (printed, yarn-dyed and knit) and hydrangea print frocks (which came both embellished and through multiple colorways), with special moments for layering (a beautiful, painstakingly hand-done chevron weave leather skirt). Overall, the lighthearted, “not-so-serious” lineup offered seriously good clothing.

Elie Saab Debuts Home Collection

AT HOME WITH ELIE: Elie Saab is branching out into interior design.
The Lebanese designer has signed a partnership with Swiss home design company Corporate Brand Maison to add furniture and interior design projects to its existing ready-to-wear and haute couture activities.

J.C. Penney Cozies Up With Hallmark in Hopes of a Better Holiday

The holidays are in motion at Hallmark Channel and J.C. Penney Co. Inc., with the companies announcing a strategic partnership this week as part of Hallmark’s 10th anniversary of its “Countdown to Christmas.”
It seems the retailer is hoping to bolster last year’s “conspicuous” holiday slippage. What proved to be a good holiday sales season for most retailers, left J.C. Penney wanting. Stores closed earlier this year and this summer, bankruptcy rumors stirred — so a good holiday season this time around is essential for a turnaround.
The partnership with J.C. Penney will involve “custom on-air content, digital and live activations, exclusive in-store retail displays” centering on the debut of “Christmas at Dollywood.”
Just this week, the 117-year-old retailer added a new chief digital officer, Karl Walsh, as the latest tweak in Penney’s rebuild of its top management over the past year, as reported by WWD.
Other than the new strategies in digital, Penney’s also brought on a pilot into resale this summer with the help of ThredUp, as part of its broader reinvention and clamor for department stores to stay relevant.
A movie premiere at Village East Cinema on Thursday night in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan kicked off the partnership, with Penney’s

The Marc Jacobs Pre-Fall Resort 2020

Collection. Items. Sounds like a fashion oxymoron. But no one in fashion is more adept at reconciling the oppositional than Marc Jacobs, whether opposition of perception (good taste, bad taste) or fact (unified collection, single items).
That’s just what he’s doing at The Marc Jacobs. With its launch year now in the rearview mirror, the line remains an assortment of wardrobe items to mix and match at will, its components derived either from the designer’s past work or from the trove of vintage that inspires him. Pieces are as disparate as The Forties Dress and rugged fare produced in concert with first-time collaborator, Crockett, Tex.-based workwear firm Stan Ray. Yet there’s no reason there can’t be a little structure imposed on the eclecticism. Here, Jacobs did that primarily via the palette, vibrant brights tempered into a gentler pastel range repeated through a series of photo-real prints, another of the lineups mini motifs. These include floral and cake motifs.
Yes, cakes. Guests arriving to the showroom came upon a huge, pretty confections display — clue! More than mere evil gastronomic temptation, it presaged a bakery motif that included photo prints of vintage cakes, some as single images on sweatshirts and some collaged into

Bella Freud Dresses Little Simz in a Periwinkle Tux for Matches Show

CIAO, BELLA: “Ginsberg Is God,” according to Bella Freud’s cult, slogan sweaters, but the crowd celebrating the designer’s spring 2020 collection at the Matchesfashion town house in London had other ideas: On Thursday night, they worshipped at the musical altar of Little Simz.
Dressed in a periwinkle Bella Freud corduroy tux, the British rapper and singer took over the second-floor space of the Matchesfashion.com town house with a live performance that saw her jump off the speaker-filled stage and take it to the floor for her final song.
There was a Seventies spirit in the air, and a sense of irreverence in Freud’s latest designs, which focused on tailoring and were inspired by the Texan swagger of Jerry Hall. There were also velvet tuxedo combinations in a new pink palette to express the “intensity of London, like a Roxy Music album,” according to Freud. The designer has also done a white velvet tuxedo as a Matchesfashion exclusive.

Willy Bogner Plans for the Future by Appointing Trustee for Family-Founded Business

Willy Bogner has lined up a succession plan for Bogner, the skiwear and sportswear company that his family started in 1932.
The 78-year-old namesake of the Munich-based company has reorganized his responsibility for the Willy Bogner GmbH & Co. KGaA by appointing Arndt Geiwitz as trustee to represent his interests as Bogner’s owner. In addition to ownership rights, the trustee will represent his entrepreneurial responsibility for the company.
Bogner’s aim is to set up a long-term succession plan in the best interests of the company and its employees, and to try to ensure that the interests of the family are protected. Going forward, Bogner will focus on contributing to further development of the brand, design and fashion collections.
In a statement, Bogner noted that working with the management board over the past two years the Bogner brand is back “on a successful course with attractive fashion collections.” Two years ago his model-turned-designer wife Sônia, who helped her husband modernize the family business, died after a long illness.
Bogner said, “It is very important for me to ensure that our company, my life’s work, is set-up for a sustainable and successful future. There is still a lot of work ahead of us. At the age of

Victor Glemaud Pre-Fall 2020

Victor Glemaud’s pre-fall collection was inspired by Swedish painter Hilma af Klint, whose work was recently exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum. Glemaud was taken by the artist’s use of floral motifs and graphic stripes.
He added floral stitches to the crochet of summery pastel dresses, and cool stripes to a cropped shirt with matching flared trousers, giving the look a fun Seventies vibe, especially when paired with the cowboy boots shot throughout the look book (used at the suggestion of stylist George Cortina, who recommended handmade boots with vivid and graphic colors). “I love a stripe,” Glemaud said during a preview, which was apparent given the number of striped pieces he made — including a pink, white, purple and blue top styled with matching ankle-length skirt.
He paired another graphic sweater with a blue and white “v” neckline over swim bottoms made more for sunbathing than swimming. Other psychedelic multi-striped swimwear was reminiscent of what Farah Fawcett might have worn in the Seventies. Staying true to his aesthetic, Glemaud put out another collection meant for young women who want fashion pieces for on the go.

Marc Jacobs Reenters Men’s Arena

Marc Jacobs is back in the men’s business, in part thanks to a popular guy named Charlie Brown. After several years of absence from the men’s arena, the brand has introduced its new range quietly, within the items-based The Marc Jacobs collection.
Collaborations are a key component of The Marc Jacobs, including one with “Peanuts.” When its launch lineup shipped for pre-fall 2019, the brand found men started buying larger sizes. That prompted Jacobs to add various pieces in men’s sizes, the first of which, for resort, are available at the brand’s stores and on its e-commerce site. “We have great pieces, exciting collaborations and had a big response with the launch of The Marc Jacobs from guys wanting the ‘Peanuts’ sweatshirts, the corduroys…so we thought why not pick some of the key pieces and offer them in men’s sizing,” Jacobs said.

Netflix’s NSFW Tweet Goes Viral With Brand Accounts Leading Responses

“What’s something you can say during sex, but also when you manage a brand Twitter account?”
That’s the question that Netflix posed to its Twitter followers Thursday afternoon, which is a riff on a popular meme and is part of the streaming service’s promotion of the second season of its show, “Sex Education.”
The tweet has since gone viral thanks to a number of major brands across virtually every industry chiming in with their brand slogans, with answers ranging from comical to NSFW.

what’s something you can say during sex but also when you manage a brand twitter account?

Maybelline, for one, tweeted back “Two to three strokes will do the trick,” while Axe responded, “now 33 percent bigger.” Coach also got in on the fun, responding with, “All wrapped up and ready to give.”

Cushnie Pre-Fall 2020

Eighteenth-century French Rococo style may seem like an aesthetic detour for Carly Cushnie to draw inspiration from. After all, the period is characterized by ornamentation and heavy, rich fabrications, whereas Cushnie leans toward a minimal and sensual femininity. But it was the romance from the period the designer gravitated toward, which imparted inherently sleek silhouettes with newfound volume that managed to remain lightweight.
Foremost here were pieces utilizing crisp taffeta as gathered bunches along the bust, ranging from a chic jumpsuit whose streamlined body stood in contrast to the volume above it, to a flirty yellow minidress featuring the season’s Rococo-inspired floral jacquard. Cushnie cut the print in ways both statement-making (a blue head-to-toe set with puffed sleeves and plunging neckline) and subtle (through tonal knitted jacquard dresses), always leveling a thread of modernity.
The tether to the era was never overbearing, either. Instead, Cushnie took concepts of Baroque French dress and relaxed them to create great summer items. Corsetry elements, for instance, were used to fasten a floral duster, while similar drawstring ties created the ruffled collar of a clean white dress. Tailoring was softened with drapy sleeves, and the aforementioned knit jacquard dresses featured the most sensual necklines. Soft, confectionery

Bluestar Alliance Completes Acquisition of Hurley from Nike

Bluestar Alliance, LLC has completed its acquisition of Hurley International from Nike Inc.
This confirms a report in WWD in late October. Terms of the deal between Bluestar Alliance and the $ 36.4 billion juggernaut Nike were not disclosed.
Surfers were the first to embrace the Hurley brand which was started in Southern California in 1979 by the then-twentysomething Bob Hurley with partners Bob Rowland and Joe Knoernschild. Hurley had worked on surfboards for such companies as Lightning Bolt; Wind-an-Sea and Wave Tools.
Nike acquired Hurley in 2002, when the then-Costa Mesa-based company generated annual sales of $ 70 million. Buying the brand started by surfing industry authority Bob Hurley gave Nike automatic credence into the surf, skateboard and snowboard category, which was new terrain for Nike at that time. With the mammoth support of Nike, Hurley broadened its reach beyond its SoCal roots to appeal to more international shoppers. Hurley stepped down as chief executive company from his namesake brand in 2015.
Citing Bluestar’s momentum since its founding in 2007, the company’s chief executive officer Joseph Gabbay described Bluestar as “a premiere brand management and marketing company and Hurley is a pinnacle asset with a long runway of growth ahead. As surf culture resonates throughout

Art Basel Miami Beach 2019: Kris Van Assche Unveils Berluti Pierre Jeanneret Design Collaboration

For much of the European designer crowd, the trip to Miami for Art Basel has been in-and-out (see Alessandro Michele, Daniel Lee) and it was no different for Berluti’s Kris Van Assche.
“Twenty-hour flight for 24 hours in Miami,” Van Assche said Thursday evening from the rooftop above the Berluti boutique in the Design District.
Van Assche was in Miami this week for his third Art Basel, to debut his collaboration with François Laffanour of Galerie Downtown: 17 original Pierre Jeanneret pieces, upholstered in Berluti’s Venezia leather.
“I’ve loved Pierre Jeanneret furniture for a very long time,” Van Assche explained. The collection includes items ranging from cinema chairs and a daybed to a desk, a bench and an armchair, done in colorful hand-applied patina, a break from the tradition of shoes and accessories for the Berluti brand, he said.
“I wanted to break that open and have it be about clothes, but use patina now in this very contemporary context,” the designer said. “Tradition with shoes is fine but it’s also possible to use that tradition in a very contemporary and modern way. So it’s about proving that all that know-how can also be used for something totally different. This is a big step

Michael Kors Collection Pre-Fall 2020

Investment dressing, versatility, timelessness. In this age of environmental awareness, it’s front-and-center of the fashion discussion. As Michael Kors nears his 40th anniversary in business (not a typo — 40 years), he’s thinking about those characteristics relative to his own work. So much so that as he prepared his pre-fall collection, Kors did some archive-surfing, and identified some timeless pieces, including a windowpane ruana over a bodysuit and culottes from 1981. He thought it looked darned good, and to open his pre-fall presentation (he calls it “transseason”) he reissued the look fairly faithfully, minus the overdone makeup and flashy jewelry.
The ruana’s vague southwestern feel got Kors thinking about the Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum he’d seen a while back — “her clothes, so modern” — and the explosive cultural moment country and the American West are experiencing right now. He rattled off a litany: Orville Peck, Lil Nas X, the indomitable Dolly Parton. “There’s this incredible movement,” Kors said, wondering if it might be about “finding something to be proud of in Americana today.”
Hefty musing for a pre-fall collection. And happily so, because the collection looked great, a chicly indiscrete fusion of Western and Kors-ian tropes. For starters,

Gucci Goes After Alleged Counterfeiters in New Suit

Gucci America Inc. wants to send a message.
The oft-imitated designer brand sued more than three dozen web sites it accused of selling knock-off shoes, accessories and clothes, and of appropriating its brand name. 
The web sites siphon off customer traffic from Gucci and essentially operate as part of a black market network for fake designer products, according to the brand’s complaint filed Thursday in Florida federal court. 
Gucci said in the suit that it spends “significant monetary resources” to ward off counterfeiters, and asked for millions in statutory damages at a rate of $ 2 million for each counterfeit item the web sites sold.  
“The exponential growth of counterfeiting over the Internet has created an environment that requires companies, such as Gucci, to file a large number of lawsuits, often it later turns out, against the same individuals and groups, in order to protect both consumers and itself from the ill effects of confusion and the erosion of the goodwill associated with the Gucci brand,” the company said in the suit. 
The web sites at issue are registered in the U.S. and overseas, and run by unknown businesses, according to the complaint. Some of the sites named in the suit could not immediately be

Forte Forte Pre-Fall 2020

For pre-fall, Giada Forte took an imaginative trip along the East Coast.
References to the American countryside culture, reflecting in the blanket-inspired graphic embroideries peppering maxi cardigans and coats, were juxtaposed to the sparkling accents of frocks and fluid, deconstructed suits that looked perfect for glamorous nights out in New York City.
The overall mood was unquestionably Forte Forte with washed silks, rich textures and deep colors conveying that poetic, emotional, distinctive style which is deeply associated with the brand.
Slouchy pants matched with small jackets enriched with velvet inserts, blouses with tiny ruffles at the collar shown with effortless chic suede outfits, as well as denim oversize suits with double-breasted jackets were some of the key looks of this highly wearable lineup, designed for women who want to embrace sophistication in a very unique way.

Sportmax Celebrates 50th Anniversary With Capsule, Book

MILAN — Sportmax is marking its 50th anniversary in 2019 with a dedicated anniversary capsule and a book published by Assouline.
“The book stems from the idea to chronologically retrace moments in history that were reflected by Sportmax, which has always been part of its times, music, architecture and politics,” Maria Giulia Prezioso Maramotti, retail director of parent company Max Mara Fashion Group, said in an interview.
The book — divided into five decades, from the Seventies to today and unveiled in London on Wednesday evening — illustrates the work of major fashion photographers who collaborated with the brand, from Sarah Moon and Peter Lindbergh to David Sims, whose image of model Kiki Willems was chosen for the book cover. The tome, which costs $ 195, includes some previously unpublished documentation, with drawings, backstage photos, editorials and campaigns, as well as a series of special images in which the French photographer Grégoire Alexandre interprets a selection of signature garments from the Seventies until today. French artist Aurore de la Morinerie created a number of illustrations inspired by Sportmax and featured in the Assouline book.

Veronica Beard Pre-Fall 2020

Titled “Sundaze,” the Veronica Beard pre-fall collection was made to evoke lazy afternoons and an Indian summer, brimming with easy printed dresses and elegant fluid tailoring.
Designers Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard captured the mood in numerous ways: first, with a saturated palette of warm terra-cotta, mustard, and dusty pink; secondly, through romantic florals at times playfully patchworked together. Highlights included a flattering smocked floral dress and another flirty number pieced together and ruched around the waist.
There was variety in the mixed-media construction, from a more casual knitwear-and-shirting hybrid to a sturdy quilted jacket bringing together denim and the season’s floral print, for pieces that required zero fuss. For all the prints and colors present, the collection remained inviting.
The designers have expanded into so many categories over the past few years — swim, denim, footwear, extended sizing — that one almost forgets about the ubiquitous dickey that started it all. There were some great jacket options here, including a Birdseye blazer with plaid inset along the waist, and a chic mustard blazer adorned with the brand’s new crest buttons. There’s an inherent play on boy-meets-girl when it comes to design, too, seen most evidently in soft military silhouettes that

Festive Shopping Goes Green in London

LONDON — The run-up to Christmas has long meant increased spending, but some brands and retailers are proposing a new, and more mindful, approach to festive shopping.
It includes pop-up shops — mostly dotted across buzzy East London — that offer sustainably made fashion and lifestyle products, as well as talks and events aimed at educating the consumer on how to make better purchasing decisions and live a sustainable life.
“I want consumers to know that every single person can make a huge difference with their purchasing,” said Cora Hilts, cofounder of the sustainable luxury lifestyle platform Rêve En Vert.
Rêve opened a concept pop-up at The Factory in Dalston in November, offering customers the chance to shop a selection of the brands it stocks online, and to be part of panel discussions or workshops spreading the sustainable message.
Brands featured in store include the Scandinavian women’s wear line Envelope 1976, organic cotton brand Organic Basics, fragrance house Sana Jardin and the plant-based skin-care brand BySarah, among others.
“We talk about the notion of strong-knit community so often at Rêve En Vert that I really felt the timing around Christmas was great to create a space where we could be collaborative,” Hilts said. “The space

Aquazzura Extends Colorful Vision to Jewelry

LONDON — Edgardo Osorio of Aquazzura lives a colorful life that involves many a stylish woman and trips around the world — including a yearly trip to Turkey with a close-knit group of friends, among whom is up-and-coming Turkish jeweler Begum Khan.
“There’s always an impromptu Begum shoot on our trips and this time we thought that we really should work on something together. We started playing with the idea on holiday and went to Istanbul, explored the bazaar and looking at all these patterns and ideas and symbols, so everything just happened,” said Osorio.
He has just debuted the results of the idea sparked in Turkey — his first jewelry collection, which has been designed in collaboration with Khan.
The line is as exuberant as the designer’s signature shoes, with the pineapple motif that appears on the soles of his stilettos translated onto statement earrings, brooches and necklaces done in 24K gold, crystals, root rubies, root emeralds, quartz and citrines. Heart- and beetle-shaped earrings, a symbol of good luck, also feature in the collection which is exclusive to Aquazzura boutiques.

Tadashi Shoji Pre-Fall 2020

Tadashi Shoji sees the city of Istanbul as a reference point to guide his pre-fall 2020 collection. The designer said the Hagia Sophia, the museum and former Greek Orthodox Christian patriarchal cathedral, later an Ottoman imperial mosque, with all of its lavish details and architectural wonders lead him on his roadmap for the season.
The theme played out in a lineup of frothy dresses interpreting the building’s lavish structure with semitransparent silhouettes that play off themes of sheerness and illusion — like a blue, ombre, tiered, floor-length dress, cascading down the body like water.
The tightly edited rage, just over 30 looks, leaned in on ornamentation, like the silver and gold brocades seen on a section of dresses. There were a few touches of masculinity, too, like a double-breasted black tuxedo number with a lace tank underpinning and crystal buttons. Shoji’s work lands at an average of $ 408 at retail, so it’s a lot of craftsmanship for your buck.
There were moments of lightness, a mix of billowy draped pieces and some dresses cut close to the body with heaps of laces, tulles and bold colored fabrics. It adds up not so much to a hit you over the head reference of the

Art Basel Miami Beach 2019: Fendi Debuts Scented Baguette in Design District

“There is a before and after Baguette,” said perfumer Francis Kurkdjian on Wednesday night, huddled by the sofas on the second floor of the Fendi boutique in the Design District with Silvia Venturini Fendi and artist Christelle Boulé. “Before Baguette, we were talking about handbags. After the Baguette, we talk about the ‘It’ bag.”
The trio was there talking about the newest addition to the Fendi Baguette handbag lineage — the FendiFrenesia Baguette, the result of a collaboration between all three creatives. “I think today after the bag, if you go to Wikipedia you will read, ‘baguette: a kind of French bread, and a bag,” added Venturini Fendi of the bag’s enduring legacy.
The new bag, introduced exclusively at the Miami boutique in two different sizes, incorporates Kurkdjian’s patented scented leather, with a vial of the FendiFrenesia scent tucked inside each bag. It’s multisensory: you can see it, smell it, feel it and hear it (the sound of the clasp).
“When I heard that Francis had this patent, this idea, and he had this exclusive, I thought it was so natural to apply to the Baguette,” said Venturini Fendi; Maison Francis Kurkdjian is also part of the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton family. “I

Christian Siriano Pre-Fall 2020

The first impression one might take away from seeing Christian Siriano’s new collection is that it’s very muted. There was only black, white, gray and beige, which might seem off-brand for the designer, especially coming off a spring collection that he said was “literally a trip on crazy color.” But it was a refresh of sorts, a “palette” cleanser, while maintaining the drama and excitement Siriano brings to the evening world.
He experimented with tailoring in playful ways that allowed the clothes to be more modern and cool. There wasn’t a single straightforward blazer: rather, he spliced a black one with sheer overlay on one side, while another off-white number appeared cropped, yet actually featured a built-in sheer skirt. It allowed for more versatility in styling, where sheer pants could layer under such a skirt or with any of the reworked tailoring. The experimentation crossed over to dresses, too, including a drapy sleeveless dress with lapels and an off-the-shoulder piece with double-breasted button closure. “I wanted things that felt almost somewhat utilitarian, even masculine in a way,” he said during a walk-through.
The structured silhouettes took their cues from interior design, where balance plays a vital role. He was particularly drawn to

Adidas Seeking a Higher Profile in American Market

Adidas wants a bigger chunk of the American market.
At the end of 2018, Adidas had an 11.5 percent share of the U.S. athletic footwear retail market and a 5.4 percent share of its activewear market, according to NPD’s Matt Powell. But Zion Armstrong, the company’s North American president, wants to significantly grow its share.
In an interview at Adidas’ new 45,000-square-foot New York City headquarters in Greenwich Village, Armstrong, a New Zealand native and 21-year Adidas veteran, said the U.S. represents 40 percent of the global sports market, “so our biggest opportunity is here.”
From 2016 to 2018, he said, Adidas has doubled its top-line sales in the U.S. and “is on track for a record year” in 2019. “We’re very happy with the progress we’ve made, but we’re not happy with where we are.”
He said that with a market penetration in the low single digits, “there’s an immense opportunity. We’re moving out of the minors and into the majors.”
He hopes to raise the company’s sales in America by zeroing in on innovations in product for both performance and lifestyle, enhancing its sustainability initiatives and launching some key collaborations, including the first collection with Beyoncé, which will make its debut in mid-January.

Les Hommes Sets New Strategy

MILAN — Les Hommes is following a development path in the wake of the return of its former chief executive officer John Haenraets, who exited the company two years ago.
The Milan-based men’s wear company, which was founded in 2009 in Antwerp by Tom Notte and Bart Vandebosch and is controlled by Flemish family holding company Palmyra Brands trough the N-Vdb vehicle, is reorganizing its internal structure, as well as revising its delivery schedules.
In particular, starting from the fall 2020 season, the brand merged its Les Hommes Urban contemporary sportswear collection into the main label, Les Hommes.
“From a creative point of view, we felt the necessity to unify the two lines into a single brand to define a clear idea of contemporary elegance, which is going to be the key element for the future of the brand,” Notte said. “We will focus on the unification of opposites, combining sport and tailoring for the creation of hybrids.”
“This idea was already in their heads and I just had to find the way to transfer it on paper,” Haenraets said. “I think it’s very important that the brand had clearly defined what it is about. And this idea of contemporary elegance will drive our business and

New Miu Miu M/Marbles Stool Debuts During Art Basel Miami Beach 2019

After introducing the M/Matching Colorstool during Milan Design Week earlier this year, Miu Miu and M/M (Paris) have teamed for a second edition. They’re introducing the M/Marbles Stool during Miami Art Week, with two large-scale versions of the stool installed at the Miami Design District Post Office and The Standard Hotel.
“The idea is to create a life-size, human-scale box in which you can experience the stool,” says M/M (Paris) cofounder Mathias Augustyniak of the two sculptures on display during Art Basel. “To have a larger version of the stool that could almost look like a tent or house, and then that is to bring this idea of domesticity, what could be a Miu Miu temporary house.”
He notes that the new iteration of the stool, and sculptures, are reflective of Miami’s take on Art Deco and extravagance. “Everything becomes a bit bigger, everything becomes a bit more luxurious,” he says. While the first stool was priced to be relatively accessible, the new stool is slightly more expensive, reflective of being more of an art piece than a functional design object. It was created in a similar style as the original stool, but with elevated design tweaks: palmwood with solid walnut and hand-blown Murano

Marissa Webb Pre-Fall 2020

Marissa Webb decided to edit down this season’s collection to more intentional pieces and focus more on her core classic styles. “We never have an inspiration,” said Webb, whose signature colors of greens, browns and camo were present in her pre-fall collection.
This season’s shapes are more “slouchy,” like the knit sweaters that can double as a chic top paired with trousers or jeans or can be worn with knee-high boots comes in an assortment of colors. A standout piece was the long-sleeved button-down shirtdress that ties in front; it also comes in black, brown and camo green.
There were still touches of masculinity within the collection with the tailored suiting in both black and pastel pink. For those homebodies, Webb designed loungewear in the form of high-waisted sweats and sweatshirt in black and white and also a sweatshirt that zips open at the neck and Bermuda sweat shorts that can be worn from the couch to brunch.

Patrick Robinson’s Passion Project

After more than 25 years in the fashion business, Patrick Robinson was frustrated with a lot of what he saw: lots of waste, lots of unnecessary pieces, lots of corporate mumbo-jumbo.
So the designer, who has worked for such bold-faced brands as Giorgio Armani, Anne Klein, Perry Ellis and Gap and also had his own eponymous collection, decided it was time to take a step back.

Amanda Jones

He hired a guide and spent 18 days backpacking in the wilderness. It was during that solitary time of reflection that Robinson experienced a reawakening and decided on his next career move.
It’s called Paskho, an ancient Greek word that means passion.
The initial idea for the brand was to embrace the “values and virtues” he’d developed growing up in Southern California. He was doing his best to live a clean life: eating well, growing his own vegetables and cultivating chickens and bees. But seeing the waste that was being generated in his last corporate position at Gap, he thought there had to be a better way.

“The temperament of [Vancouver where Reigning Champ is based] is kind of somber, always raining, and when I started designing this, that was the temperament of my life at that period and I wanted to speak to that with this collection,” said designer and creative director Jide Osifeso.
The creative lead and founder of fashion label Hymne partnered with the Canadian brand on a 14-piece collection entitled “Weeping Eye” that is inspired by overcoming ego and generational trauma and “victory.” The collection ranges in price from $ 115 to $ 550 and is available at Reigning Champ stores, and global retailers such as Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Matchesfashion, Browns London, Lane Crawford, Nubian and the Hymne web site.
The collection is comprised of anoraks, cargo pants and sportswear pieces in premium fleece and stretch nylon fabrics. Reigning Champ revived its stretch nylon fabric at Osifeso’s request, as the fabric was one of his favorites. He applied it to a hockey jersey and cargo pants that he said “is probably my favorite one and has been the most popular in the line.”

R13 Pre-Fall 2020

For a brand with a strong and clear identity, Chris Leba manages to inject newfound excitement into R13 each season. Sure, there was trademark suiting, plaids, army influences and boxy proportions filtered through the brand’s rebellious grunge lens, but it was accented here with special design quirks that felt fresh. 
Leba shied away from the print-heavy direction he’s been going the past few seasons, instead focusing on subverting khaki, plaids and more workwear-leaning fabrications. He updated khaki outerwear and pants with turn-back cuffs to reveal his signature leopard print, and offered a lot of cool urban jumpsuits cut big and cinched with double belts. 
Many outerwear pieces were versatile with internal contrast drawstrings to cinch the waist in back yet leave the front unaffected; a light gray double-breasted coat was a notable standout for retaining a boxy, disaffected appeal. Patchwork camo jackets in various lengths were topped off with giant utility pockets and touted the gender-ambiguous realm Leba likes to play in. 
The takeaway from each R13 collection is that Leba has fun. He puts out delicate floral slipdresses with youthful energy, cool torn-up sweaters and utilizes leopard print as if it were a neutral fabric — all while maintaining the brand’s rock-‘n’-roll

Now this bastion of maleness is set to court a new audience. On Thursday, the men’s store and social club will feature its very first women’s apparel pop-up, courtesy of new luxury brand Careste.
The lineup on offer — comprised of the label’s latest dresses, blouses and scarves — will focus on the theme of modern romanticism cast in 100 percent limited-edition, Italian silks. The creations were designed by Elizabeth Shah, formerly of Giorgio Armani, Sonia Rykiel and Emanuel Ungaro, among others.
By the brand’s estimation, pop-ups are a smart, liberating strategy. The company doesn’t get bogged down by owned stores or the inventory and warehousing  concerns and dead stock that usually go with them.
“Strategic shop-in-shops in luxury retailers is one of the key ways that we are expanding Careste’s presence and mission, and our collaboration with Wingtip is just the beginning of a concerted effort to expand into this critical channel nationwide,” Celeste Markey, Careste’s chief executive officer, told WWD, of the 475-square-foot space within Wingtip.
According to Markey, Careste expects sales of from $ 75,000 to

Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2020

Move over, Michael Kors. You’re not New York fashion’s only overt optimist. Wes Gordon’s right up there with you. At his informal presentation at the Carolina Herrera showroom on Wednesday, Gordon started his casual narration by saying that he’s happiest at his farm in Connecticut where he and his husband go every weekend, having picnics, hosting friends and watching the dogs romp freely.
His idea for pre-fall was, he said, “[to take] the love and laughter and good feelings of Saturday and Sunday, transporting that to Monday to Friday…not just saving the colorful, happy moments for the weekends.” To that end, he “went a little ‘Green Acres’ and Ava Gabor, a little bit if the high-city glamour mixed with some country wit.”
The collection made good on its concept (even if Gordon went a little more Ava than Eddie Albert), delivering glamour with subtle sweetness and a casual attitude that belied the often-intricate constructions of the clothes. He opened with happy tailoring — a belted pantsuit in a light blue-and-white plaid that has good old gingham somewhere on its ancestral tree. Feisty short looks came in a draped marigold number inspired by Zendaya’s Carolina-clad appearance on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,”

Miami’s Tighemi Boutique Celebrates Everything Moroccan

Caftans can be found on every corner of Miami, but few to none hail from Morocco’s finest ateliers. Lisa and Lauren Walsh, mother and daughter fashion-collectors-turned entrepreneurs, are shining the spotlight on the North African niche through the Tighemi lifestyle boutique in the Miami Design District. In addition to voluminous caftans hand-sewn by Moroccan artisans from Italian silks, the recent New York transplants import customized clothing, accessories and home décor (tighemi translates to “home” in Berber) from Morocco.
“Moroccan dress usually gets clumped in with other ethnicwear, so we’re trying to give it some individual identity,” said Lauren, who had no intention of turning their trips to Marrakesh, which originated with her mother’s fine art photography pursuits, into a business. “It just happened organically that we came across these incredible craftsmen for a combination of curating and collaborating.”
Tighemi’s modern styles are a mix of natural fabrics. “Moroccan cashmere” — densely woven cotton — gets its nickname from its softness, and structured totes and weekenders in Italian leathers can take a beating on the Gulfstream circuit. Many pieces like coats and gondola dresses are embellished with buttons and other accents embroidered from sabra, a traditional silk in Morocco that’s spun from a

Taylor Stitch Teams With Stetson on Capsule Collection

Taylor Stitch is embracing its cowboy side.
The San Francisco-based men’s brand has collaborated with Stetson on a capsule collection of seven styles that will be available beginning Dec. 5 and rolling out throughout the month of December on the Taylor Stitch web site.
The shirts, jeans and hats feature organic cotton and performance fabrics that use hemp and recycled polyester. The footwear, an updated take on the classic moto boot, is handmade in Leòn, Mexico.
Michael Maher, Taylor Stitch’s chief executive officer, said, “We decided to partner with Stetson based on their heritage founded in creating quality products that last. Like Stetson, we’re dedicated to building timeless styles that are well made and get better with age. The biggest difference is that they’ve been doing it for over 150 years and have the experience and customer following that comes with that. By taking a risk and stepping outside of our comfort zone, we’re able to reach an entirely new customer base that may not know about Taylor Stitch, and as a young, growing brand that’s hugely helpful. Likewise, through the partnership we’re able to showcase a legendary brand like Stetson in a new light to our loyal Taylor Stitch fans.”
