WWD EXCLUSIVE: Hyères Festival Announces New Dates for 2020 Edition

LATE SHOW: Amid serial cancellations due to the coronavirus pandemic, one major fashion event has confirmed it will hold a physical edition this year: the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography will take place from Oct. 15 to 19, organizers said Wednesday.
The 35th edition of the festival was initially scheduled for April 23 to 27, but Jean-Pierre Blanc, the festival’s founder and general director, said in March that it would be postponed until October. Unlike other events that were initially postponed, and then ultimately canceled their 2020 editions, Hyères is now set to go ahead.
The program is unchanged: Jonathan Anderson will head the fashion jury of the festival; Paolo Roversi will lead the photography panel, and Hubert Barrère, artistic director of Chanel-owned embroiderer Maison Lesage, will take the lead for the accessories prize.
The accompanying exhibitions will stay open until Nov. 29 at the Villa Noailles, the modernist villa built in the Twenties that hosts the annual event, and other locations around the Mediterranean town. France partially lifted its lockdown measures on May 11, and the Villa Noailles reopened to the public on May 15.
Sponsors of the Hyères prizes include Chanel, Hermès, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Kering, Chloé, Première

M Missoni and Yoox will unveil an exclusive capsule collection on Friday consisting of 11 pieces, the first in a long-term partnership. Titled “Reuse, Remix, Respect,” the capsule promotes a conscious approach, utilizing sustainable and repurposed materials such as sustainable Lurex cut into sweatshirts and jersey T-shirts with colorful graphics, FSC viscose fashioned into a black jumpsuit, and Missoni-stock raschel serving as appliqué on a sweatshirt. The collection is not entirely sustainable, and includes dresses, skirts and trousers in reimagined signature chevron patterns. Prices range from $ 75 to $ 360.
This marks the first collaboration from Margherita Maccapani Missoni as creative director of M Missoni, who noted the importance of social responsibility, especially given the COVID-19 crisis: “Both M Missoni and Yoox are committed to sustainability initiatives and developments in the industry. We aim to build evergreen relationships with projects which, like ours, respect communities and share values.” She continued by saying “the crisis is affecting our daily lives and the habits of almost everyone, but is also an opportunity to reassess our values, to get in touch with our real needs and realize our fortunes, to slow down and to change our minds.”

Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh Creates Exclusive Capsule for Tsum

Virgil Abloh, creative director of Off-White, wants a bigger slice of the Russian market.
Off-White has developed a capsule with Tsum, the Moscow department store, set to launch Saturday and sold exclusively at tsum.ru.
Tsum has carried Off-White’s mainline collections, but this is their first exclusive partnership. The capsule was developed in Abloh’s design studio in Milan and embraces the “spirit of the Nineties.”
Asked his impressions of Russian style and his inspiration behind the collection, Abloh said, “This community passionately embraces an eclectic style, that also happens to be very practical. There’s a lot of mixing and matching, the building of smart casual looks from luxury and vintage. Through this capsule I wanted to bring this concept to life. To me this way of dressing is so heavily linked to ‘the spirit of the Nineties’ — an era that gave us the building blocks of this current trend.”
For example, the women’s wear collection features a fitted, plunged-neck dress with exaggerated shoulder silhouette, an oversize hoodie, fitted Ts and track pants. A touch of metallic is added to bags to give a high-tech, industrial feel. Men’s wear staples include flannels, Ts and hoodies in shades of black and white, zip chain wallet and

Giorgio Armani has hired Los Angeles-based Celine Khavarani as senior vice president of entertainment industry relations for the Americas.
Khavarani will oversee celebrity dressing and relationships for Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani and Armani Exchange from the company’s Rodeo Drive office, while reporting to Gaetano Sciuto, chief executive officer of Giorgio Armani Corp., as well as Roberta Armani, head of entertainment and VIP relations.
It’s a changing of the guard for the house that shaped the business of Hollywood red-carpet dressing. Since the Nineties, Wanda McDaniel has been Los Angeles’ Armani liason, a celebrity dressing pioneer who helped outfit countless stars and executives from Jodie Foster to Leonardo DiCaprio, Dawn Steel to Martin Scorsese. At the 2020 Oscars alone, Armani dressed Renée Zellweger, Laura Dern, Natalie Portman, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, DiCaprio and more. McDaniel will continue to support the Armani Group in worldwide communication and VIP capabilities, reporting directly to Roberta Armani, the brand shared.
And it’s a full-circle moment for Khavarani, whose first job out of college was in the L.A. Armani p.r. department working under McDaniel in 1999. Khavarani then took on roles at Bulgari, followed by Jimmy Choo, Prada, where she was vice president of VIP relations, and Marc

The launch of Gwyneth Paltrow’s collaboration with Proenza Schouler for G. Sport — Goop’s athletic line — may have been held off “if it was another category,” said Shaun Kearney, Goop’s general manager of fashion and home. “We discussed holding the collection.”
With the current climate, many brands are postponing launches and rethinking marketing strategies. As the world turns to life’s bare essentials, retail (particularly the extravagance of luxury) has taken a back seat and been impacted by store closures and a variety of cancellations.
It’s activewear’s connection to wellness and “the Goop community looking to stay healthy” that made this release “a right fit,” Kearney continued. As nearly 40 million California residents alone were ordered to “stay at home” until further notice by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday and other states are likely to follow to help manage the outbreak, wellness — from the mental to physical — has been a rising focus.

PARIS — Givenchy, whose perfume business is said to be riding high, has tapped a new president and chief executive officer with experience in fashion and beauty, WWD has learned.
Renaud de Lesquen, currently president and ceo of Dior Americas, is to join Givenchy on April 1.
A suave but discreet executive, de Lesquen has been in the New York-based role for four years, and previously served the same amount of time as president of Dior China. Prior to that, he spent 10 years at L’Oréal in Paris, as president and ceo of YSL Beauté, and before that as global president of Giorgio Armani Beauty.
The appointment suggests Givenchy is about to embark on a new development phase — and also underscores the penchant of parent LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton to groom and promote executives from within.

EXCLUSIVE: Chloé Taps Three Women Artists for Show Collaboration

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

EXCLUSIVE: Dior Partners With Louvre to Restore Tuileries Garden

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

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

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

TEAM PLAYER: It seems like professional athletes are no longer content with simply posing for fashion brands — they are looking to seriously get involved.

He is to be a shareholder, ambassador and collaborator all rolled into one, according to a company statement, and will sit on the brand’s executive committee. The amount of his minority investment has not been disclosed.

All these different things influence each other.”

Rebecca Minkoff is trying on children’s clothes. 
The company, which sells women’s ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories, is releasing its first children’s collection just in time for New York Fashion Week. It also marks the brand’s first attempt at sustainable apparel. 
Uri Minkoff, who cofounded the brand with his sister Rebecca in 2005, told WWD, “There’s a lot of talk on how fashion impacts the environment, as well as supply chain, as well as artificial intelligence, and we felt like this was a really great and sound system to be able to become leaders in this whole space and as part of this conversation. And we’re really excited that we’re able to put all those pieces together and launch it, especially during our 15-year anniversary.”

EXCLUSIVE: Naked Cashmere Unknits Fully Recycled Cashmere Line

Naked Cashmere carries its weight in promising recycled cashmere, introducing a 100-percent recycled cashmere spring collection “Cashmere Reborn.”
Featuring soft seven-gauge cashmere pullovers, dusters, dresses, tops and tanks, and matching sets (indicative of the Instagram-induced trend of influencers palming coffee mugs in their luxury loungewear), the collection hopes to be a sustainable, luxury choice for transitioning to warmer seasons.
The premium cashmere business was founded in 2016 by Bruce and Leslie Gifford as the direct-to-consumer channel of the Los Angeles-based firm 360 Sweater Company LLC. The launch was celebrated with an ad campaign featuring Kate Moss photographed by Peter Lindbergh.
Having been in the business of cashmere for more than 20 years, today, the Giffords find themselves wrestling with flagrant misuse and green-washing of terms. Even Eileen Fisher and Patagonia have dabbled in “recycled cashmere,” with still others flaunting the use of “technical cashmere.”
In Gifford’s book, it doesn’t really mean anything: “I guess I’m the last man standing or whatever,” he told WWD.
“Most recycled cashmere is not 100 percent recycled,” added Gifford. “It’s usually cashmere blended with wool or virgin cashmere,” he said spouting off examples, like “70 percent recycled cashmere with 30 percent virgin cashmere, or 97 percent cashmere with 3 percent

GUCCI TALES OF SAN FRANCISCO: Gucci is heading west.
The Italian fashion house will stage its cruise 2021 collection in the City and County of San Francisco on May 18, although the precise venue is still being kept under wraps.
The brand’s creative director Alessandro Michele has chosen the American city for its history as a center of liberal activism and for being a cultural melting pot “where antidotes to discrimination have been cultivated, sowing the seeds for freedom of self-expression for many,” read a statement.
This approach mirrors Michele’s vision for the brand, which has been hinging on diversity and promoting the right to be oneself since he took the creative helm in 2015.
Over the last five years the designer has taken the brand’s cruise collections to different locations, all historically and culturally charged. These included the Dia Art Foundation in New York; the Cloisters of Westminster Abbey in London; the Palatine Gallery in Palazzo Pitti in Florence; the Promenade Des Alyscamps in Arles and, last year, the Capitoline Museums in Rome.

PARIS — Five years after shuttering their ready-to-wear business, Viktor & Rolf are returning to men’s wear with a new collection that combines their signature dandy style with a more conscious approach to design.
The label, which belongs to Italian entrepreneur Renzo Rosso’s OTB SpA group, has entered into a worldwide licensing partnership with Tokyo-based Shiffon Co.

EXCLUSIVE: Agnona Makes Men’s Wear Comeback

MILAN — “Addressing the forgotten guy in fashion,” is the ultimate goal of Agnona creative director Simon Holloway, who is relaunching the brand’s men’s division.
The label under the Ermenegildo Zegna Group is making a comeback to the men’s arena after a 20-year hiatus with the fall 2020 collection, which will make its debut on the catwalk of the Agnona women’s show in February in Milan.
“Agnona made men’s clothes for many years and then they stopped in 2000 apparently. However, it was really the Eighties and the Nineties were the heyday of the Agnona men’s wear,” said Holloway, who joined the brand in 2015, succeeding former creative director Stefano Pilati. “But looking back, what was interesting was that, much like in women’s wear, it was a collection based on jersey tailoring, knitwear, outerwear, not a tailored suiting collection. We are lucky to start from a place that feels very contemporary.”
According to Holloway, the company realized that there is space in the men’s market for a brand offering luxury collections injected with an effortless, laid-back and sort of timeless spirit.
“There is plenty of stuff which is very traditional and there is plenty of wonderful things made by forward-thinking designers,” he said. “What’s

EXCLUSIVE: Artist Judy Chicago Creates Installation for Dior Couture Show Set

DIVINE INTERVENTION: Maria Grazia Chiuri has tapped feminist artist Judy Chicago to design the set of her spring haute couture show scheduled to take place at the Rodin Museum in Paris on Jan. 20 — and the general public will have an opportunity to view the installation, titled “The Female Divine,” from Jan. 21 to 26.
Chicago, 80, is best known for her Seventies installation “The Dinner Party,” which highlights the role of women in history and culture through elaborate dinner table place settings, dedicated to figures ranging from Boadicea to Virginia Woolf, featuring hand-painted plates depicting elaborately stylized vulvas.
For the Dior show, she has created an immersive space featuring an oversize goddess figure, extending into a specially woven catwalk carpet adorned with thousands of flowers.
In addition, the artist — who has often used needlework in her projects — designed 21 banners embroidered in English and French with questions such as “What if women ruled the world?” that were made at an embroidery school in India, as part of Dior’s efforts to support female students in what is traditionally a male-dominated sector.

MILAN — After closing the Versace spring 2020 runway show in a reimagined version of the iconic plunging jungle print dress she wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000, it’s no surprise that Jennifer Lopez posed for the brand’s new advertising campaign, which will be globally unveiled today.
J.Lo is the protagonist, along with Kendall Jenner, of a series of images shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
Immersed in a tech-driven environment, they were captured typing their names into the search bar as a metaphor of today’s concept of self-identity, which through the use of social media can be carved by choosing what to share with followers. In the pictures, both Lopez and Jenner don sculpted evening dresses, as well as jungle-printed separates.
“In terms of my career, the Jungle dress really marked a moment in time. To me, Versace represents empowerment and putting something beautiful out into the world,” Lopez said. “It’s a dream to collaborate with my friend Donatella [Versace] again on this gorgeous campaign and to create something new and fresh out of a piece of iconic fashion history.”

EXCLUSIVE: Berluti Unveils New Canvas With Globe-Trotter Collaboration

PARIS — When Kris Van Assche arrived at Berluti in April 2018, he found a brand whose heritage was mostly confined to its classic patinated leather shoes. So the Belgian designer went about inventing new historical markers for the house, composed of elements of the past with a modern twist.
Enter Berluti’s new Signature canvas, which breaks down parts of the Scritto, its signature 18th-century manuscript motif, and the logo Van Assche introduced at the start of his tenure, based on the letters carved into a wooden shoe tree dating back to 1895, the year founder Alessandro Berluti established himself as a shoemaker.
“I really wanted it to look like an instant classic,” Van Assche told WWD of his newly created canvas design, which features a seal containing the words Berluti and Paris, the date 1895 or the letter B. “It looks as if we found it somewhere in the archives — that was totally the point — but it’s a new chapter.”
To mark the debut of the canvas, available in a single colorway, Berluti is launching a collaboration with British luggage brand Globe-Trotter consisting of eight cases, ranging in size from a 26-inch trolley suitcase to a messenger bag with a

EXCLUSIVE: Jacquemus Goes Coed

GIRLS AND BOYS: Jacquemus is going coed. The designer’s show on Jan. 18 during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris will showcase both his women’s and men’s fall ready-to-wear collections.
Jacquemus, who launched his men’s line in 2018, previously showed the collections separately, though he tested the coed concept with his 10th-anniversary show, held in a rolling lavender field in Provence, France, in June.
Going forward, he plans to stage two shows a year on the Paris men’s calendar in January and June, bucking the trend among other brands, which tend to hold coed displays during the women’s collections, when more editors are in town.
Jacquemus said he hoped this would have a positive effect on deliveries, with merchandise arriving earlier in stores, as well as lightening the load for his teams, who last year moved into new headquarters in the tony 8th arrondissement of Paris.
To mark his decade in business, the designer known for his oversize sun hats and miniature handbags recently held a sample sale that had lines stretching around the block.

EXCLUSIVE: Nicholas Hoult, Alice Pagani Front Emporio Armani Scent Masterbrand

TAKE TWO: Actors Nicholas Hoult and Alice Pagani are the new faces of Emporio Armani fragrances, fronting the scents Stronger With You Freeze for him and In Love With You Freeze for her.
The perfumes are part of a franchise begun in 2017 with the launch of the Stronger With You and Because It’s You iterations. Stronger With You last year almost reached the top-10 of men’s fragrances in Europe, according to an Armani spokesman at L’Oréal, the brand’s perfume and beauty license.
Hoult is a British actor who has featured in the “X-Men” movies and “The Favourite.” His upcoming film projects include Taylor Sheridan’s “Those Who Wish Me Dead” and Hulu’s series “The Great.”
Pagani is an Italian actress who stars in the Netflix series “Baby” and features in the movie “Loro.” Last year, she also appeared with John Travolta and Morgan Freeman in “The Poison Rose.”
Fabien Constant directed and Damon Baker lensed the scents’ Together Stronger campaign, which is set to the soundtrack “Powerful,” by Major Lazer, featuring Ellie Goulding and Tarrus Riley.

EXCLUSIVE: Maison Kitsuné Ends Collaboration With Yuni Ahn

PARIS — The year has only just started, but change is already shaking up the Paris fashion scene.
After just three seasons at the brand, designer Yuni Ahn is leaving French ready-to-wear label Maison Kitsuné.
The creative director, who joined the label in December 2018, is stepping down from her role, according to a statement issued by the company. The decision was mutual, said a spokesperson.
“After significantly developing its internal studio team under the helm of Yuni Ahn, Maison Kitsuné will transition the design of the brand’s forthcoming collections to recent in-house key hires to be announced,” the company said.
The brand’s new creative director — who, according to the statement, is already part of the Maison Kitsuné studio — will be revealed after the presentation of Ahn’s last collection during Paris Fashion Week.
Ahn, who was born in South Korea and is based in London, trained at Céline with Phoebe Philo. Under Ahn’s creative direction, Maison Kitsuné’s range of preppy separates took a decidedly fashion-forward edge; the label joined the official Paris Fashion Week calendar while under her leadership.
“We want to thank Yuni Ahn for the significant achievements accomplished over the engagement,” Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, cofounders of Maison Kitsuné, said in the

EXCLUSIVE: Courrèges Parts Ways With Yolanda Zobel

PARIS — Yolanda Zobel is leaving Courrèges.
The creative director, who took over the French fashion house in February 2018, is stepping down from her role, according to a company statement.
The decision was mutual, the statement said, with Zobel to focus on “other creative projects.” Neither Courrèges nor the designer was available for further comment.
Zobel’s last collection for the house, corresponding to fall 2020, will be presented at the end of January and will be distributed to selected points of sale.
Relatively unknown before joining Courrèges, Zobel — who grew up in Germany — has for two decades been developing fashion collections for various brands, including Jil Sander, Acne Studios and Chloé, where she served as senior designer under Paulo Melim Andersson between 2006 and 2008.
Upon joining Courrèges, the designer, intent on upping the brand’s sustainability credentials, pledged she would discontinue its production of textured vinyl. The material had become synonymous with the Space Age label, which was founded by André and Coqueline Courrèges in 1961.
Instead, the creative director chose to focus on giving a second life to the brand’s extensive archive of existing plastic garments, as well as working with more natural fabrics such as pure cotton or, for spring 2020, algae-based

EXCLUSIVE: Diesel Teams With Pronounce for China Amplification

LONDON — Pronounce is the latest fashion label to work with Renzo Rosso’s Diesel on a capsule collection. Some pieces from the collection will debut with Pronounce’s fall 2020 fashion show in London, and a show featuring the full lineup will take place during Shanghai Fashion Week in late March.
The capsule will be available in China and in Diesel’s selected global retail network.
The collaboration was developed based on the 40-year-old Diesel’s archive in Breganze, Italy, and founders of the Pronounce brand Yushan Li and Jun Zhou traveled there repeatedly for research in 2019.
They found their journey going through the archive similar to watching a river flow in time. “What inspired us hugely was Diesel’s path from beginning to now, where every single step matters — we were inspired by those ‘watermarks’ in the creative process,” explained Zhou.
Li added that they were greatly inspired by the innovative cutting and textile development they saw in the archive and applied them to new designs. One of the key items in the capsule is a hand-painted raincoat with special patterns sourced from the archive. Techniques involved with water, such as tie-dye and water drop dye, are also a signature for the capsule.

MILAN — Gucci will celebrate the Year of the Mouse with a capsule collection featuring Walt Disney’s most famous rodent: Mickey Mouse.
Launching in stores and online on Friday, the expansive range dedicated to the Chinese New Year — which begins Jan. 25 — offers women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, footwear, small leather goods, scarves, jewelry and timepieces mixing the Florentine fashion house’s signature motifs with the image of the renowned cartoon character, which already popped up in previous Gucci collections, including in the spring 2019 and resort 2020 lineups.
In particular, a new Mini GG Supreme canvas with a Mickey Mouse print has been introduced for this capsule collection. The beige and ebony fabric references a vintage signature Gucci pattern from the Eighties replicated via digital printing to blend it with the image of the cartoon character appearing in varying scale. Finished off by a protective coating and embossing delivering the appearance of linen, the material has been used on footwear, such as slip-on sneakers and the brand’s signature Princetown slippers, as well as handbags and small leather goods, ranging from small bucket bags and mini backpacks to wallets, passport cases and iPhone covers.

Gabriela Hearst will be the sponsor of this year’s Young Fellows Ball at the Frick Museum, to take place at the museum on March 12.
The annual black-tie event has previously been sponsored by brands like Altuzarra, Escada and Carolina Herrera.
“The museum is obviously a New York institution,” Hearst says. “To be able to have a record of the past in a way — there are not many Gilded Age mansions left. And I am someone who believes that to understand the future you have to learn from the past.”
Hearst, who came to the museum on her first trip to New York, when she was 18 years old — “so we’re talking ancient history” — says that supporting an institution like the museum is important to her as a source of inspiration.
“From a craft perspective and a visual simulation perspective, I find it one of the most rewarding places in the world.”
The brand typically focuses charitable efforts on Save the Children and Our Children’s Trust. “My personal focus is children and the environment, so the future,” says Hearst. “But Wes Gordon is a friend and Paul Arnold invited us to do this and I really like them, so it’s a pleasure.”

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

EXCLUSIVE: Dior and Jordan Debut Collaboration Sneakers at Pre-fall 2020 Show

Miami, December 2019. The birth of Air Dior.
Dior and Jordan Brand are ending this decade with a special collaboration sneaker dubbed the Air Jordan 1 High OG Dior, which made its debut Tuesday night at the Dior pre-fall 2020 show in Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach.
Nike produced the first Air Jordan sneaker that was unveiled on NBA player Michael Jordan in his rookie season in 1984 and was officially released to the public in 1985 — nearly 40 years after the founding of Christian Dior’s company and almost 30 years after the founder’s passing. While the legacies of Dior and Jordan crossed paths sartorial through street style, they formally meet through this collaboration sneaker thanks to Dior men’s artistic director Kim Jones.
“I chose to collaborate with Jordan Brand because Christian Dior collaborated with the best American brands of his era,” Jones told WWD. “I love mixing together different worlds, different ideas — Dior and Jordan Brand are both emblematic of absolute excellence in their fields. To bring them together in this special collaboration is to propose something exciting and truly new.”
Jones is also “mixing together different worlds” through a collaboration with Shawn Stussy for the Dior pre-fall 2020 collection.

EXCLUSIVE: Shawn Stussy Is Back in the Game With Dior Collaboration

PARIS — Kim Jones is hitting Miami with his Dior pre-fall men’s collection as the city gears up for Art Basel Miami Beach, a highlight of the year for artists and collectors. But the designer is breaking with recent tradition by collaborating not with a fine artist, but a man equally famous for his distinctive penmanship: Shawn Stussy.
The founder of the Stüssy brand, whose signature first appeared on his handcrafted surfboards before becoming one of the world’s most recognizable clothing logos, has been largely absent from the fashion scene since leaving the brand in 1996, with the exception of a brief return under the S/Double label a few years ago.
But Jones, a fan since his teenage years, had no trouble coaxing the streetwear pioneer out of retirement.
“There wasn’t much luring,” Stussy said at Dior’s headquarters in Paris. “I was just in a good place in my adventure, and he’s in a good place, and the stars just seemed to kind of line up. And if I’m going to come out for a last hurrah, why not with Dior? That’s the way I look at it. It’s the very top of the top. I have nothing but respect.”

Exclusive: Past Becomes Present With Volvita Fashion App

PARIS — Forget resale. The latest tech-driven start-up allows fashion fans the possibility to revive items from past collections.
Volvita, which will let people peruse a library of fashion brands’ previous and current collections, curate sharable playlists of favorite pieces and preorder garments that might be remade, is the brainchild of cofounders Christina Grammenos and Christian Drappi.
The concept has a sustainable angle since producing an exact number of preordered garments leads to no overstock — overproduction being one of fashion’s dirtiest secrets.
Grammenos, Volvita’s chief executive officer, was previously general manager of influencer marketing platform Tribe Dynamics, received an MBA from Harvard Business School and was a business planner at Miramax. Drappi was a software engineer at Tribe Dynamics and is now Volvita’s chief technical officer.
Jad Boutros, cofounder and ceo of TerraTrue and former chief security officer of Snap Inc.; Veronika Kapustina, practitioner in residence at the London School of Economics’ Marshall Institute; Nicole Shanahan, founder and ceo of ClearAccesIP, and AbdulAziz AlRashed invested in the recent funding round.

In another sign that Richemont is shaking up its underperforming fashion division, its Chloé maison named a new chief executive officer.
Riccardo Bellini, currently ceo of Maison Margiela, will join Chloé effective Dec. 1, the house said in a statement on Thursday, confirming a report on WWD.com.
Bellini is to succeed longtime Chloé ceo Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye, who has navigated the house through several changes in creative direction and the death of founder Gaby Aghion in 2014. He had recently put the focus on the attributes of the Chloé girl, exalted at a dedicated cultural space in Paris that opened in 2017, housing the brand’s archives, showrooms, a photography studio and exhibition space.
De la Bourdonnaye has been at the management helm since 2010. Before that, he was ceo at London retailer Liberty and president at Christian Lacroix. He had joined the fashion industry after a long career at The Walt Disney Co.
He piloted Chloé through several changes in designers, recruiting Clare Waight Keller from Pringle to succeed Hannah MacGibbon. When Waight Keller became the couturier at Givenchy in 2017, he tapped Natacha Ramsay-Levi from Louis Vuitton. It is understood Ramsay-Levi’s contract runs through the spring.

The range, which debuts online today, will consist of 155 units across men’s, women’s, accessories and skiwear. The collection features updated versions of Nineties classics, such as sporty puffer jackets, updated with new technological materials and neon hues.

The Linea Rossa range made its comeback to the market last May, as the first exclusive drop on streetwear publication Highsnobiety’s new e-commerce platform, while now Farfetch will become its permanent retail partner.
Farfetch has been working to expand its assortment of exclusives, with brands such as Alyx, Valentino, Burberry and Stella McCartney all carrying exclusive product on the platform.
It has also been looking at introducing alternative retail models including handbag resale, as part of its sustainability agenda.

EXCLUSIVE: Activewear Brand Varley Secures a $5 Million Investment

Varley is upping its game. 
The fast-growing women’s activewear brand has secured $ 5 million in investments, which the company plans to use for product development, including moving into new categories, redesigning the web site and hiring additional staff. 
“Women are definitely adopting the performance fashion lifestyle,” Lara Mead, cofounder of the brand, told WWD. “The majority of women now are doing some form of physical exercise. That doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re running marathons. But maybe they’re walking the dog or hiking with friends or going to a yoga class. We provide that performance outfit for her, whatever her activity is.”

The investments were provided by two of Europe’s most well-known business leaders: Ron Dennis and Anders Povlsen. But Mead, who cofounded the company with husband Ben Mead, said the demand for ath-leisure and activewear apparel has been growing all on its own. 
The duo founded Varley in 2015 after taking a trip to California. It was there that they saw the health-and-wellness movements and ath-leisure movements taking off.
“Much more rapidly than it was in Europe at the time,” Lara said, and realized a hole in the European market. 
“There was nothing really that we felt that translated to a European woman’s wardrobe,” Lara

EXCLUSIVE: Wacoal America Is Getting a New CEO

Wacoal America’s changing of the guards is moving into the next phase. 
Starting Oct. 1, Mitch Kauffman will be elevated to president, as Bob Vitale, who has been chief executive officer and president of the women’s intimates apparel company for more than seven years, takes on a lesser role in preparation for his upcoming retirement. The move is part of Vitale’s succession plan, which has been in the works for six months. Kauffman will officially become ceo of Wacoal America in March, the end of the company’s current fiscal year. 
“I feel very, very confident that Mitch is the right person for this position,” Vitale told WWD. “The beauty of this situation is that Mitch has been here for three-and-a-half years. So he already understands our culture and our people. And I couldn’t be more delighted in terms of someone taking over my role.”

EXCLUSIVE: Ramdane Touhami Introduces Fashion Game and New Creative Agency

GAME ON: Fashion’s a game, literally, for entrepreneur Ramdane Touhami, who created a board game called Art, Recherche & Industrie to mark the official launch of his creative agency of the same name.
“It’s kind of a Monopoly of fashion and design,” he told WWD on Monday, the day before he would host a fete in Paris for the kickoff. “The idea of this game is you go around exactly like in Monopoly. You have to build your first store, your flagship store. And after, in the rules, we wrote clearly you have to be the richest. Don’t be nice to anyone, they’re all hypocrites.”
Three hundred of the artisanally designed games are being produced for Touhami to gift. “This is sarcastic fun, but it’s still fun,” he said.
The “franc mode” currency ranges from 100 FM bills to 50,000 FM bills, which feature portraits of famous fashion figures, including Gabrielle Chanel and Jeanne Lanvin.
As players pass go, they collect 20,000 FM in salary. Here, the roads are named after tony shopping streets, like Rue Cambon, Fifth Avenue and Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The three other corner squares of the board are Burn-Out, CEO Bonus and Holidays Simple Weekend.

Mr Porter Taps Sid Mashburn for Exclusive Collection

Sid Mashburn is taking the plunge into wholesale.
The Atlanta-based designer and retailer has teamed with Mr Porter on a collection of elevated tailored clothing, sportswear, footwear and accessories that will launch on the site today. The capsule will be sold on Mr Porter’s e-commerce site as well as in Mashburn’s five stores in the U.S.
Mashburn, a veteran of Ralph Lauren, J. Crew, Tommy Hilfiger and Lands’ End, created his own brand in 2007 alongside his wife Ann, a former editor at Condé Nast. The brand expanded into women’s wear in 2010.
Mashburn said Sam Kershaw, Mr Porter’s buying manager, reached out to him last summer and said he was interested in potentially doing something together. “He liked and appreciated our brand and what we stood for,” he said. They met in New York and then at Mashburn’s flagship in Atlanta, which cemented the deal. The Sid Mashburn label offers a contemporary take on American traditionalism.
Mashburn knows that wholesaling is a different ballgame and admitted he’s “a little nervous and a lot excited” about the launch. But he has experience in direct-to-consumer businesses with Lands’ End and J. Crew and has also built an online business for Sid Mashburn, so he’s comfortable

EXCLUSIVE: Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri Talks Sustainability

PARIS — Maria Grazia Chiuri is thinking green.
In the run-up to her spring 2020 runway show for Dior on Tuesday, the designer has been delving into the brand’s archives — and in particular its rich tradition of floral designs — while trying to imagine how that heritage could be updated to address today’s climate crisis.
Her answer? A collaboration with the Paris-based landscape and urbanism collective Coloco on the set for the show, to be held at the Longchamp racecourse in Paris, which will feature 164 trees that will subsequently be replanted in four locations in and around the French capital.
“I asked them, ‘How can we do a set that speaks to the garden in a contemporary way?’” Chiuri told WWD in an exclusive interview in the brand’s temporary design studio overlooking the Seine river. “We have to translate this idea of a garden into concrete action: a support project that can create other gardens in the community.”
Coloco, whose expertise ranges from botanical activism to ecological engineering, was founded on the idea that gardens should be collective endeavors. The show set was conceived as an “inclusive garden” that promotes the need for plant diversity as a response to climate change.

EXCLUSIVE: Chanel Chooses Capri for Its Cruise 2021 Show

WANDERLUST: Chanel will be back on the road, to Capri, Italy, to show its cruise 2021 collection on May 7 next year, WWD has learned.
“We are very happy to go to Italy, and even more so to go to Capri,” Bruno Pavlovsky, president of fashion and president of Chanel SAS, told WWD. “It’s a very inspiring place, very inspiring for Virginie Viard. We have a lovely cruise show in the works.”
“From the 1920s, Gabrielle Chanel offered her clients lightweight and comfortable designs for yachting, coastal resorts, spa towns and other various sunny destinations such as the Riviera and the Lido beaches of Venice,” Chanel said in a statement.
It will be the second cruise collection designed by Viard, who has helmed the house’s artistic direction since the death of Karl Lagerfeld in February.
The Capri event will mark the first time since 2016 that Chanel is to present a cruise line outside of the French capital, where it’s been showing for the last three years to help the city counter the fallout from the 2015 terrorist attacks and to enhance its reputation as the global capital of fashion.

EXCLUSIVE: Dior to Publish Book of Photographs by Nikolai Von Bismarck

OUT OF THE SHADOWS: Fashion showgoers may know Nikolai von Bismarck as the boyfriend of Kate Moss. What many don’t realize is that he’s also an accomplished photographer — one who’s about to publish his first book in collaboration with Dior men’s artistic director Kim Jones.
“The Dior Sessions,” published by Rizzoli, charts Jones’ first year at Dior through more than 100 black-and-white portraits of his friends and colleagues. They include Moss and her daughter Lila Grace, A$ AP Rocky, Robert Pattinson, David Beckham, Demi Moore, Eddie Redmayne, Takashi Murakami and Jude Law.
Photographed on film over the course of 12 months and across three continents, the project acts like a snapshot of the era, Dior said in a statement.

“Simultaneously reflecting the present and respecting the past, it holds up a mirror to modern society’s multifaceted nature, in which creatives are multihyphenates and different media — music, fashion, film, art — cross-pollinate and intermingle free of hierarchy,” it said, drawing a parallel with Christian Dior’s relationships with artists.
Jones, meanwhile, described the sitters as “a diverse cross-section of people who do amazing things.”

The luxury house launched by Rihanna with LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton will take over Galeries Lafayette Champs-Elysées from Sept. 23 to Oct. 12, bathing its tunnel-like entrance in its signature blue color.

Whether Rihanna will personally inaugurate the space remains to be seen. Fresh off the positive reactions to her Savage x Fenty lingerie show, described as a highlight of New York Fashion Week, the pop star would be certain to trigger a mob scene with a personal appearance at the venue.

“Vetements has always been a collective of creative minds. We will continue to push the boundaries even further, respecting codes and the authentic values of the brand, and keep on supporting honest creativity and genuine talent,” Demna’s brother Guram Gvasalia, cofounder and chief executive officer of the Zurich-based fashion house, said in a statement. “What Demna has accomplished over the past few years represents a key chapter in the story of Vetements.

PARIS — For its first fashion show outside of France, AMI is headed to Shanghai. Signaling a fresh Asian thrust for the brand, the show will be held on Oct. 12, preceded by pop-up stores in Shanghai, Beijing and Chengdu, which will open on Oct. 1.
“We’re heading into our ninth year and the number nine is a lucky number for me so we decided to celebrate this anniversary rather than the 10th,” Alexandre Mattiussi, AMI creative director, told WWD.
Mattiussi, who showed his label’s first collection in January 2011, said the label has a certain resonance in Asia.
“It’s a French designer at an affordable price point,” is how chief executive officer Nicolas Santi-Weil described the label’s positioning. Mattiussi started the label because “he loved beautiful things but he felt a little disconnected with reality because all the garments he was designing were sold at a price point that he could not afford himself,” said Santi-Weil, recalling the designer’s days at Givenchy.  
“AMI is appreciated in Asia because it’s a Parisian postcard,” said Mattiussi. At the same time, he said he might make small adjustments, like changing a fabric or a certain color.

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

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

SHANGHAI — H&M is bringing its fashion designer collaboration initiatives to China, and designer Angel Chen has created a 45-piece capsule with the retailer’s design team. The collection is due to hit stores in September.

EXCLUSIVE: Aitor Throup Announces Upcoming New Men’s Label

Aitor Throup is gearing up to debut a men’s wear label, WWD has learned.
The Buenos Aires-born and Burnley, England-raised designer, known for his highly conceptualized fashion, said this project marks “the biggest thing I’ve ever worked on, I’m nearing the completion of my vision, which has been 15 years in the making, and I’m near the end of it.”
The new men’s brand, the name of which is being kept under wraps, will make its debut later this year before fully seeing the light in 2020.
Throup, who had served as G-Star’s executive creative director overseeing the men’s and women’s mainline ranges and the Raw Research men’s line since 2016, last year parted ways amicably with the Amsterdam-based label co-owned by Pharrell Williams.
Prior to his appointment at G-Star, Throup had launched his conceptual men’s label New Object Research, which debuted on the London Fashion Week: Men’s calendar that year with a performance-presentation hybrid in a deconsecrated church in Marylebone.
The men’s label blending fashion, design and the arts paved the way for the development of the new project debuting this year. “New Object Research was a part of this process, this exploration that has allowed me to develop a new platform, a new
