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

Umbro, Kinfolk Collaborate on Rio-Themed Capsule

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

Dsquared2, Drake’s OVO Collaborate on Capsule

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

“We have this intuitive cultural understanding between us, we are all from Toronto, Canada power, working with Drake was like creating with the third D, D cubed to the power of three,” said Dean Caten. “We feel that collaborations unify forces from different industries, whether it is fashion or music, coming together is the way to go,” added Dan Caten.
The collection will be available from Friday at OVO’s seven flagships across Canada, the U.S. and in London, as

Thierry Lasry, Ali Madhavi Collaborate on Video

MILK RUN: Thierry Lasry and Ali Mahdavi make quite the pair. The eyewear designer and the artist and fashion photographer hosted a cocktail on Friday night.
It was to celebrate the release of a video they did together. Called “Milky Way,” the two-minute clip features a model swimming in a pool of milk. In it, she wears a glamorous pair of cat-eye sunglasses from the spring collection.
“It was a challenging shoot,” said Lasry with a laugh, noting that you cannot really warm up the milk. The video will be used for social networks and in-store animations.
The clip marks his first collaboration with Madhavi.
“We’re both fans of the Eighties,” said Lasry.
“It’s the most creative and unpretentious period. Claude Montana was a genius,” Mugler’s ex-assistant Mahdavi opined.
Mahdavi said he’s working on a capsule collection of simple classics including a trenchcoat, a peacoat and a dress with Laurent Mercier, a former Balmain designer.
The Misshapes’ Leigh Lezark, sporting a Roksanda sleeveless coat and Geordon Nicol turned out. The duo did the score of “Time to Choose,” a new documentary by “Inside Job” director Charles Ferguson investigating global climate change that will be screened during Paris Climate Summit in December. Will Vivienne Westwood attend?

In 2016, Your Pants Will Be Your Touch Screen: Google and Levi’s Collaborate

It’s a marriage of newfangled technology meets classic American style: This morning, at Google I/O 2015 in San Francisco, the tech company announced its exclusive partnership with Levi’s to launch wearable clothing technology next year.

(And no, in this case, wearable clothing technology doesn’t mean you’ll be walking around with screens strapped to your chest—a la Teletubbies or Robert Cary-Williams circa 2001.)

Recently, Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) team designed a new type of yarn—a “conductive” yarn—that can be woven into fabrics. They’re calling this material “Jacquard.”

These conductive fibers are then woven into a garment as a panel capable of sensing touch, just like a touch screen. Electrical connectors can then be hooked up to miniature circuits as small as a button—and touch registered on the fabric can be signaled wirelessly to a computing device, like a phone or tablet.

Yup, you read that right: soon, your jeans might have touch-screen capabilities—woven into its fibers.

levis

We can’t wait to see how Levi’s uses Jacquard—jeans, jackets, bags, anyone? What would you like to see the high-tech fiber integrated into? I’d love to see Jacquard not only in clothes but repurposed for kids’ toys, curtains, rugs, and, well, basically anywhere that fabric exists in my life. Imagine the possibilities!

Jack Huston to Collaborate With Oliver Peoples

JACK OF ALL TRADES: Jack Huston is adding a new title to his CV: eyewear designer. The British actor serves as the face of Oliver Peoples, and for spring will increase his involvement by codesigning a pair of frames. “I’m a sunglass fanatic,” Huston told WWD, calling from set in Italy, where he is filming the upcoming “Ben-Hur” remake. “They approached me about collaborating on a frame and I was like, ‘Are you kidding? That sounds awesome.’”
The one-off style, which is named after the actor, features a thick acetate frame with three pin detailing along the front temples, and will be available as both a sunglass and optical frame. The frames will be available in four colors: Ebonywood, Raintree, which is a light brown, Cocobolo — which is a reddish-brown — and black. The Ebonywood and Raintree glasses will feature a new style of lenses for the brand: the VFX Plus, a polarized glass lens that features rare earth materials and infrared coating, which aims to keep eyes cool and less strained than with typical lenses. The Jack Huston sunglass frame, which retails for $ 475, will be available for purchase at Oliver Peoples boutiques and additional select stores beginning later

Jimmy Fallon Playing The Vanilla Ice Board Game Makes You Stop, Collaborate And Listen

Ice is back with an embarrassing invention.

In Jimmy Fallon’s first installment of his “Do Not Game List,” the “Tonight Show” host introduced us to a bunch of different awful games, but Vanilla Ice Electronic Rap might be the most terribly awesome of them all.

In the game, players are given an electronic beat box and rap different rhyming words that don’t make a lot of sense.

Fallon doesn’t really explain how to win the game, but this might just be one of those cases where there aren’t any winners.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
