Direct-to-Consumer Jeweler Aurate Plants First Two Retail Stores

Aurate has begun putting its $ 13 million in funding to use. The direct-to-consumer jewelry label, which in June revealed a significant series A funding, will open its first two permanent retail locations on Saturday in New York City.
The brand, which has been operating a pop-up shop in Manhattan to test the market, will open stores in SoHo and on Madison Avenue.
The uptown store at 1015 Madison Avenue measures 916 square feet, while its location at 154 Spring Street is slightly larger at 1,242 square feet. Both locations feature experiential technology that introduces consumers to the raw materials and production methods enlisted to create Aurate jewelry. The stores were designed by female-led architecture firm Alda Ly, which is also responsible for the viral women’s coworking space, The Wing.
“Being that Aurate is a direct-to-consumer brand we have the freedom and flexibility to implement experimental strategies, and opening retail locations is no different. The installations, paying homage to the natural and sustainable elements of our jewelry, throughout the store create a truly immersive experience and are a testament to the brand’s innovative nature,” said Aurate cofounder Bouchra Ezzahraoui.
Cofounder Sophie Kahn added: “By using data collected in-store to help create the finalized experience, we’re

Coach and Michael B. Jordan Debut First Collection

Coach launches today its first collaboration collection with men’s wear ambassador Michael B. Jordan.
The partnership that was first revealed one year ago in September culminates with this collection inspired by Jordan’s influences, highlighting unique voices and anime, more specifically “Naruto,” the Japanese manga that was first published in 1997 and first adapted to anime in 2002.
“I wanted to use something personal to me,” said Jordan about the collection inspiration. “Incorporating Naruto into the collection felt really authentic since it meant so much to me growing up and still does. It’s not often that I get to blend business with personal and it’s a rare coincidence when those two worlds meet up.”
Naruto Uzumaki, the series’ titular character, is a young, optimistic ninja who realizes his potential despite rejection and tribulation. Symbols, motifs and attire from the series are prevalent in the unisex collection like the signature eye that was reworked with the luxury house’s Retro C graphic, the hidden leaf embroidered on an MA-1 jacket with removable sleeves and the cloud print that is “a signature symbol of the Akatsuki, which is like this mercenary kind of group that are the bad guys in the show,” said Jordan.

Karlie Kloss, Alicia Silverstone Front Row at Christian Siriano’s First Paris Runway Show

So nice, he did it twice.
New York designer Christian Siriano held an encore presentation of his spring 2020 collection in Paris on Wednesday, with a few famous faces in the front row, including his “Project Runway” co-star Karlie Kloss, and actress Alicia Silverstone.
Silverstone, who will next star in “The Baby-Sitter’s Club” revival, said she’s been friends with the designer for a while, and that they are travel buddies.
“I met him about four years ago. He asked me to come to a show and I hadn’t been to a fashion show since the one I had been in for Yves Saint Laurent when I was 8! The reason I went is he didn’t use fur, he didn’t use wool, and this was reason enough for me to show up. I felt so beautiful in the clothes, and he became a dear friend.”
The Paris show was the perfect excuse for a trip, she said. “He’s such a talent. I’m a huge fan of his work, and I’m so inspired by how he creates. I love everything he puts me in, and I also lie on top of him on planes.”

First Lady Melania Trump Wears J. Mendel for State Dinner in Honor of Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison

GARDEN PARTY: Geopolitics are undeniably stormy, but Friday night’s clear-as-can-be weather was well-suited for the Trumps’ outdoors state dinner for Australia Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his wife Jennifer.
First Lady Melania Trump appeared to keep things easy-breezy, sporting an aqua-colored chiffon dress designed by Gilles Mendel, the creative force behind the J. Mendel label. With wave-like effects in the chiffon, the flowy creation was in step with the Rose Garden setting. Instead of welcoming guests to the State Dining Room in the White House, the first couple welcomed guests al fresco. FLOTUS appeared to sail through the proceedings in patent leather heels from Christian Louboutin. The prime minister’s wife wore a navy column dress with velour and sequins from Australian designer Carla Zampatti, who also created the black ensemble she wore for the official welcome earlier in the day.
The Australian-friendly dinner crowd included Fox’s Lachlan Murdoch, Marvel Entertainment’s Isaac Perlmutter and Chevron’s Michael Wirth, as well as various politicians and Cabinet members like Kellyanne Conway and Betsy DeVos. The arrivals coincided with news that the U.S. would be sending more military troops to Saudi Arabia following the recent attacks on oil facilities in response to Iranian actions.

Bottega Veneta to Hold First ‘Drop,’ Re-release Sold-out Shoes

This summer gave way to a changing of the guards in modern minimalism, as the popularity of Daniel Lee’s new Bottega Veneta seemed to overtake a mourning for Phoebe Philo’s tenure at Celine.
Lee’s first collection for Bottega began hitting stores in May. Shoes from his inaugural collections became ‘It’ products on social media and quickly sold out — spawning an Instagram fan account, @NewBottega, its name nodding to the popular Philo-Celine memorial account, @OldCeline.
The @NewBottega feed was started by Polimoda student Laura Rossi in late-February, just as @OldCeline’s activity began to peter out, with posts stopping in April.
Now with over 68,000 followers, @NewBottega was only the first sign that Bottega Veneta, which is owned by Kering, is gaining a bit of a hip quotient under Lee’s tutelage. This week the brand will conduct its first “drop,” tapping a style of commerce popularized by the streetwear industry.
On Sunday, Bottega Veneta’s New York City flagship will begin selling a large shipment of shoe styles that are more or less sold out across the U.S. Its stretch pump and stretch sandal styles will again become available in black and white, respectively.
Bottega said that the store, located at 740 Madison Avenue, will close for

First Look: Hugo Boss Capsule Collection by Leading Industrial Designer Konstantin Grcic

Hugo Boss has collaborated with Konstantin Grcic, one of Germany’s most influential industrial designers, on a limited capsule collection for fall 2019.
Grcic’s award-winning work in seating and lighting is featured in the permanent collections of the world’s leading museums, including MoMA in New York and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris; in 2010, he was named designer of the year at Design Miami. Over his almost three-decades-long career, Grcic is perhaps best known for his focus on utility and simplicity — high fashion seems rather a long way from his usual remit.
But not at all, Grcic told WWD as he showed off his Boss capsule collection in his airy Berlin studio, a converted factory floor with large windows and long white desks. “Beauty has a function, too,” he explained. “And if things are only practical, and not appealing, then you have a very different relationship to those objects.
“I don’t want to stretch the metaphor too far but chairs come close to something that we almost wear,” he added. Grcic’s chairs have won design prizes and several feature in museum collections. “So it’s not a completely strange world to me.”

Fashion 4 Development’s First Ladies Luncheon to Honor Carla Sozzani and the Alaïa Foundation

AN ALAÏA SALUTE: Fashion 4 Development is already gearing up for its First Ladies luncheon with a bevy of honorees. Carla Sozzani and the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation are at the top of that list as the recipient of the F4D Development award. She is president of the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation and founder of 10 Corso Como.
The Sept. 24 event will feature a tribute to Azzedine Alaïa and the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation complete with a runway show by Maison Alaïa. Twelve years ago, the company’s founder set out to convert his voluminous archives and holdings through the Association Azzedine Alaïa to become the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation. Sozzani and the late designer’s partner, Christophe Von Weyhe, have been instrumental in protecting his legacy. His collection is housed at 18 rue de la Verrerie in Paris, where he once lived and worked. Exhibitions are planned to share his work with future generations.
F4D founder Evie Evangelou said of Sozzani, “Carla is an extraordinary human being and she inspires goodness. Her sincere willingness to educate and bring her experience and knowledge to all, especially with fashion students through her work with the Alaïa foundation. It is a golden opportunity for all who have been touched by

First Lady Melania Trump Shops in Her Closet for G7 Arrival Look, But Wears Gucci for Dinner with the Macrons

SUNNY SIDE UP: In light of the increasingly fractured and troubled state of geopolitics, key world leaders have countless conundrums to deal with at the G7 Summit in Biarritz. Trade, climate change, Middle East tensions, Iran’s seizure of foreign ships and wariness of a worldwide recession based on warning signs in Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. are among the many points of concern. While the powers that will be locked in meetings for much of the weekend, their respective better halves understand how their secondary roles can potentially offer some much needed levity.
Perhaps that’s the reason that First Lady Melania Trump exited Air Force One upon arriving in France, wearing a bright yellow and white Calvin Klein dress Saturday. The sleeveless style was a throwback look that had been designed by Raf Simons. Management at Calvin Klein’s parent company PVH parted ways with him at the end of last year but FLOTUS remains a fan. (Simons is back in his native Belgium designing his own collection and he collaborated with the outerwear label Templa.) Trump has worn his designs for Calvin Klein for other occasions such as an outing during last summer’s NATO’s Summit.

Everlane Opens First Permanent L.A. Store

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SHANGHAI — H&M is bringing its fashion designer collaboration initiatives to China, and designer Angel Chen has created a 45-piece capsule with the retailer’s design team. The collection is due to hit stores in September.
This marks the first time H&M has worked with a Chinese design talent in pursuit of generating buzz among the local fashion community, as well as tapping into the young, fashion-minded, affluent and well-traveled Chinese speaking consumer since the collection will not only be available in China both online and in stores but also in countries with dense Chinese populations, such as Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines and Canada.
Magnus Olsson, country manager of H&M Greater China, said, “The fashion industry is undergoing a transformation, and consumers are constantly changing. We always aspire to create fashion that offers our local customers something new, delivering a good balance between fashion basics, current fashion and the very latest trends. Therefore, we are experimenting with various ways in different markets around the world to bring outstanding design and products to local consumers.

K-Swiss and IGC Debuts First E-sports Performance Shoe for MIBR

K-Swiss has entered the gaming arena, launching the first e-sports performance shoe with Immortals Gaming Club for Made in Brazil, or MIBR, the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive e-sports organization.
K-Swiss and IGC formed a partnership in April 2018 and produced the Immortals x K-Swiss lifestyle sneaker that launched in December 2018. The new e-sports shoe is a continuation of this partnership.
The limited-edition shoe, named One-Tap, had been in production for one year. It was developed for both professional and amateur gamers, who generally practice and compete in seats. One-Tap has a mesh upper, a foldable heel to be worn as a sneaker or a slide, a “Flow Cool” TPU venting unit to let air into the shoe and wool-lined insoles to cover the vents for warmth. The shoe also has MIBR branding and the Brazilian crest, in reference to the organization’s name and home.
“This first version is designed for MIBR in their colors. We positioned this version as a beta program,” said Barney Waters, president of K-Swiss. “We wanted to get a version out for the players and start to get feedback on what could be improved and come back in 2020 with a finer version of the shoe.”
Waters said only 200

Industry of All Nations Opens First East Coast Store in NoLIta

Industry of All Nations has brought its sustainability message to the East Coast.
Last week, the Los Angeles-based men’s brand officially opened its first store in New York City at 248 Elizabeth Street in NoLita. It’s the label’s third retail location, joining a unit that opened on Abbot Kinney in Venice, Calif., in 2015, and San Francisco at the end of 2016.
“New York feels right for us at this moment,” said brand manager Drew Preedeedilok. “We’ve been hearing ‘You’ve got to open a shop in New York City’ ever since we first opened in Venice. What’s more, we already see a lot of online orders coming from New York, so we know our customer is here.”
Industry of All Nations tested the waters by opening a pop-up at Unis, a specialty store located a few storefronts away on Elizabeth Street, from April to June of this year.
Founders Juan Diego and Fernando Gerscovich designed the interior of the 500-square-foot store and produced almost all of the custom fixtures from mostly recycled and repurposed materials. The brothers founded Industry of All Nations  in 2011 with the specific goal of changing how apparel is made. All of its goods are manufactured at the source of

Eric Emanuel Opens First Solo Pop-up in NoLIta

Eric Emanuel is stepping out on his own. Following collaborations with Adidas and New Era, the streetwear designer has opened the first pop-up shop under his own name at 251 Elizabeth Street in New York.
In November 2018, Emanuel worked with New Era on a pop-up for the brand’s MLB apparel, followed by another with Adidas for the rerelease of the Adidas Rivalry in January.
But this shop, which will be open for three weeks beginning today, will be his first solo foray. It carries Emanuel’s signature basketball shorts in solid colors and Andy Warhol cow wallpaper-inspired patterns and colors and trucker caps. New product will be released every Friday, beginning with the Adidas Rivalry low-top, the 1986 sneaker initially made in France for NBA Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing, and later mesh floral and plaid shooting shirts and matching shorts. Emanuel wants the pop-up to feel like a home, hence the pink couch, wooden floors and yellow striped walls adorned with artwork.
 

The Syracuse, N.Y.-native achieved instant success by producing snakeskin basketball jerseys that were worn by rappers Travis Scott, Post Malone, A$ AP Rocky and Future, among others. Emanuel has since shifted his focus to basketball shorts.

Dennis Basso Opens First Store in Qatar

An outdoor plaza shopping center anchored by Galeries Lafayette is the home to Dennis Basso’s first store in Doha.
Basso’s 1,800-square-foot unit is near the Cartier, Graff and Van Cleef & Arpels boutiques. Back in New York, the designer said Friday that he hopes this first store will lead to others in the Midde East. The opening was made possible through the Ali Bin Ali Holding company. Designed by Ali Bin Ali’s in-house team, Basso said the decor consists of a range of cream-colored interiors with pale gray marble and vaulted high ceilings. It is also a corner store, which allows for greater visibility, enhanced by the valet car service offered near the store’s entrance.
One of the greatest features from the designer’s point of view is the outdoor air conditioning provided by cool air that is blasted upward through grates. While Qatari woman generally wear abayas and head scarves on the street, their attire tends to be more colorful or embellished when at home, at special events or traveling. “When they’re going to a gala, they really want to be gala,” Basso said, adding that his collection was well-received at the launch, which included a dinner and an in-store event.

Levi’s is betting big on Bieber, Hailey Bieber.
The American denim giant, which launched its initial public offering on March 21, sending shares soaring, has tapped the model/influencer as the first face of its most iconic product, Levi’s 501s. The Hailey Bieber for Levi’s 501 campaign launches today, just ahead of festival season, and will continue to roll out through May 20 to mark the date when the original riveted blue jeans were patented 146 years ago.
Campaign images feature Bieber wearing Levi’s styles she has customized with her name and hints of neon, including the original 501, the 501 skinny and 501 shorts.
“I’ve been wearing 501 cutoffs since I can remember..they make me feel like me,” said Bieber, who confessed that the first pair of Levi’s she ever had she stole from her dad. “I still wear them today.” 
“Hailey has been wearing our icons, Levi’s 501s and 501 shorts and trucker jackets, without us having to ask her to. She’s a real authentic fan,” said Jennifer Sey, chief marketing officer of Levi Strauss and Co. Indeed, shortly after marrying last fall, she made headlines for wearing an oversize Levi’s trucker jacket customized with the name “Bieber,” confirming the news.

Lisa Rinna Changes Her Hairdo for the First Time in 20 Years Using Drugstore Dye

As Brandi Glanville once told Lisa Rinna in season 5 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: ‘You’ve had the same hairdo for 20 years!” Well, not anymore.

The Melrose Place alum debuted her new darker hairstyle on Watch What Happens Live! on Tuesday, after the third and final part of the RHOBH reunion special aired on Bravo.


Owen Kolasinski/BFA/REX/Shutterstock; Heidi Gutman

“I mean, I wanted to try something new, and you know, I’ve had the same hairdo,” Rinna, 52, explained to host Andy Cohen about her coiffed strands. “For 20 years I’ve had the same hairdo and I thought, ‘Why not?’ You know?”

The mother of two also added that the hair transformation was a bit of a spontaneous decision that was influenced by the recent Met Gala.

Instagram Photo

“I darkened it a little bit. I went to the drugstore last night, and I got this fanciful – I don’t know what it is. It’ll wash out,” she said. “Because my highlights were all crazy all over the place and I thought, ‘I’ll just darken it a little bit.’ I had a vision. It was sort of, like, for the Met Ball, the ‘Manus Machina’ look for the Met Ball.”

So will this darker color be permanent change? “I like my hairdo though,” she clarified. “I really do.”

Instagram Photo

Rinna’s signature, short hairstyle previously featured streaks of honey blonde highlights. She most memorably sported brunette locks in April 2015 when she ditched her shaggy pixie cut for dark Kardashian-esque extensions in response to Glanville’s insults about her hair.

One of the reasons Rinna likes to rock a bob is because husband of close to 20 years Harry Hamlin prefers a shorter ‘do.

Instagram Photo

“Harry likes it. He always says, ‘Keep it short.’ So I like to keep my husband happy; that is not news,” she said during a Access Hollywood co-hosting gig in April 2015.

Janet Jackson Reportedly Pregnant With Her First Child

Congratulations are apparently in order for Janet Jackson! The music icon is reportedly pregnant with her first child, a source confirmed to Entertainment Tonight. Us Weekly and E! News are also reporting the news. 

The Huffington Post has reached out to a representative for Jackson and will update this post accordingly. 

The pregnancy news comes about a month after Jackson, who turns 50 this month, decided to postpone her Unbreakable World Tour in order to plan her family with her husband, Wissam Al Mana. 

In a statement to her fans, Jackson said there had been “a sudden change,” and that she had to delay her shows. At the time, it was unclear whether she meant she was pregnant herself or growing her family in another way (such as adoption or surrogacy).

“I thought it was important that you be the first to know,” she said in a video posted on her social media accounts. “My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour. Please, if you can, try to understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up; doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you.” 

Jackson married Al Mana in a secret ceremony in 2012. This child will be the first for the couple.

Chrome Hearts Introduces Incense as Part of First Fragrance Collection

Having built a world filled with distinctively designed macarons, pizza cutters, leather jackets, sunglasses and chunky rings over the past 28 years, Chrome Hearts now wants to make it smell like spicy wood and leathery elixir.
As part of its first fragrance collection, the Los Angeles-based fashion and accessories brand is introducing incense this summer. The debut scent, called +33+, is the result of owners Laurie Lynn and Richard Stark, alongside their eldest daughter Jesse Jo, spending months smelling and contemplating various aromas.
Blending spices, wood and leather, +33+ is the only scent available for the incense, which comes bundled in 33 sticks. A package including a sterling silver holder retails for $ 200 and a refill set of sticks costs $ 100. True to Chrome Hearts’ rock ‘n’ roll creed, the black sticks are wrapped in its signature cross motif and the white box is embossed in Gothic script.
In addition to +33+, the company is working on a second scent to infuse an eau de parfum, roller oil, candles, scented nail polish and solid perfume. Yet to be priced, the new products are slated for a fall rollout.
While the company stocks its high-end products at Bergdorf Goodman, Colette and Selfridges, it plans to

British Designer Claire Barrow Stages First Solo Art Show

CLAIRE’S CREATIVITY: British designer Claire Barrow will be taking over East London’s M. Goldstein gallery for her first solo art show in April.
Titled “Bed, Bath & Beyond,” the mixed media exhibit will feature 17 pieces in ink, neon and acrylic.
The works juxtapose modern daily anxieties with medieval fables and religious iconography.
Barrow references the ritual of baptism against the daily habit of taking a shower or the fear of germs within a series of canvases, neons, shower curtains and toilet rolls.
“My initial reference point was social anxieties in British modern life. Then I was researching imagery from the Renaissance and Christianity’s depiction of hell, baptism and rebirth, so I started thinking about the similarities between that and the modern rituals of washing and feeling clean or free of guilt,” Barrow told WWD. “Once I had began painting and drawing, though, it was very much coming from my own imagination, I began referencing my feelings and instincts rather than taking any kind of direct visual inspiration.”
The NewGen recipient,who debuted her label as part of Fashion East during the spring 2013 season, has always blurred the lines between art and fashion.
“Every piece I create has art on it, there is a complete crossover

Traub Capital Makes First Investment in Knot Standard

Traub Capital, the investment arm of Marvin Traub Associates, has made its first deal and it’s for a bespoke men’s wear company.
The firm has purchased a “significant minority stake” in Knot Standard, an online custom men’s suit maker with showrooms in seven cities around the world.
“They were a client of ours a few years ago and we realized they were great people and had a great concept,” said Mortimer Singer, president and chief executive officer of Marvin Traub Associates. “We’ve been watching them grow and succeed and believe we can add the top-spin to help them grow further.”
He declined to provide a figure for the size of the investment.
Singer said investing in Knot Standard is “a new chapter for us. They’re quite cutting-edge in their approach.” He said the company is a prime example of “the intersection between customization in the men’s wear business and e-commerce/omnichannel,” both of which are growing segments of the apparel market.
Singer said that while there are a lot of e-commerce-driven businesses that got their start online, Knot Standard is using the “ability and know-how” it acquired as an online player to “guide them to retail locations.
“They started as a men’s bespoke custom clothing company online and

A First Peek at the Fashion on Sarah Jessica Parker’s New HBO Show, Divorce

We’ve collectively been thrilled about news that Sarah Jessica Parker is returning to TV ever since it was confirmed that her HBO show Divorce was actually, 100% happening. A picture of SJP filming the show in downtown Manhattan has just surfaced and already has us excited about the upcoming style we can expect to devour, covet, and draw inspiration from. It’s only a single outfit, but even so—this is major when it comes to TV fashion.

sarah-jessica-parker-pink-coat-the-divorce-hbo-show

In the snap, Parker is wearing a long, powdery pink coat over a printed dress. And while New York is legitimately experiencing chilly fall weather, the addition of nubby gray tights and classic pumps has us hypothesizing that the show will start off being set in fall or winter. The print and colored topper reveal that SJP’s character has to be somewhat into fashion, but she’s not pushing any envelopes, Carrie Bradshaw-style. That shouldn’t come as a surprise though, since the Sex and the City character was a 30-something-ish single gal and Parker’s new character, Frances, is a middle-aged woman going through a divorce.

HBO execs announced the series was being written this summer and wouldn’t premiere until the summer or fall of 2016. With that timeline in mind, it makes sense that taping would just be starting now.

SJP’s ties to HBO have been strong ever since SATCeven though she reportedly tried to drop out of the project way back when.

Talking With Emily Tarver About ‘Donny’ And Her First Big-Time Role

 

“Donny” is a new comedy following real life ad-man, TV personality, and single father Donny Deutsch. Deutsch plays himself as the moronic host of a “Dr. Phil”-style daytime talk show under the direction of his executive producer/adult nanny, Pam (played by Emily Tarver). The show has a unique structure. It’s loosely scripted, and as a result, reads half reality show, half single camera comedy. I had the pleasure of talking to Emily Tarver about the real Donny, her character in the show, and what it’s like getting her first big time recurring role. 

This is so cool! We used to hang out at UCB and now we have cool jobs!

Yeah, we’re not poor improvisers working for free!

Is this your first recurring role in a TV show?

Yes, this is my first recurring role that actually turned out to be a recurring role. I’ve booked other recurring roles that didn’t turn out to be recurring. So this is nice!

Tell me about the show and your character. You’re Donny’s executive producer?

Yes, I play the EP of the show within the show. She’s also the person in Donny’s life who keeps him in line and cleans up all the messes that he makes. The show is like “Seinfeld,” where the topic of the show within the show is normally the topic or the theme of the episode.

What has been your favorite topic?

Without giving anything away, he does one where the topic of the show within the show is about men of a later age coming out of the closet after being in a heterosexual marriage. Donny tries to be supportive of that and, in being supportive, he kind of announces that he is gay. That isn’t what he’s saying but while he’s trying to be brave for these people, he sounds like he’s coming out. So I have to clean up that mess. Not that it’s a PR nightmare; it’s just that he isn’t gay.

What’s your character trying to do on the show? Is Pam trying to get out of the show or this is her big shot as a producer?

Donny sees something in her and tells her that she is to come with him wherever he goes. And, over time, she grew into this position of alpha female and his producer of things. In real life, Donny surrounds himself with very strong women who put him in his place. And so I’m the shining symbol of that. I don’t put up with his shit and he doesn’t impress me. But she enjoys the challenge and she enjoys smacking his hand when he does something so Donny.

The show has a different type of look to it. Parts of it feel like a reality show. Others feel like “The Office.”

I definitely think that was done on purpose. A lot of people don’t know Donny or what he is about. People are like: is he an actor? A host? So the show’s trying to represent a lot of different genres. And because he’s playing himself, that reality feeling you get is because you can’t pin him down. It might be confusing for some people, but I think it’s cool to watch a show and go, “What is this?” Because the only answer is: Oh! It’s something new! 

It does read very new because when you watch it, Donny doesn’t feel like an actor. He feels like the real thing and everybody else is acting around him. Was it weird acting with a guy playing himself?

Yeah! And I don’t want to toot Donny’s horn too much, but he’s just a genius and he’s so good at everything he tries. I think a big part of it is his extreme confidence. When we filmed the pilot presentation, he was giving me notes on my acting. And I was like, “Ahhh, OK.” And he was right about a lot of stuff. Being on set with him, he’ll have notes for actors and production and story and he’ll he right a lot of the time.

I also noticed that this season of TV is centered around older, distinguished antiheroes, like “The Grinder” or “Grandfathered.” “Donny” seems like a different take on it. Do you think this is a wave?

I think people are quick to categorize things because that’s how our brains work. These shows are so different and so good. And I don’t think “Donny” can be put into that category based on the lead because he’s surrounded by so many women. And Donny himself is such a feminist. He wants to tell women’s stories and have female perspectives on his life at all times. And the show reflects that. Donny doesn’t even have a male best friend.

How is doing press? Is this your first time doing big time junkets and stuff?

Yeah, we went to LA. It was just Donny and me. It was really fun.

What’s that like?

Well, you sit on stage in front of a bunch of long tables with people from different blogs on their laptops. And they have a bunch of questions. Then you go to a little room with 12 cameras. And a person has a bunch of questions. Luckily, Donny is used to it. I’m there as Emily, but also as Pam. Emily and Pam are very similar in terms of how they treat Donny. And our interaction is very organic. It’s actually been that way since my callback for the show. I had to do it with Donny while everybody on the show watched.

Are you and Donny on a texting basis?

I actually don’t have his number. And I haven’t asked for it, because I don’t want him to think that I want it. I want him to ask me for my number. And then he can be impressed that I have a 212 number.

Well, that’s a Season 2 thing.

Yeah, Season 2 for sure.

That’s odd. He seems like a guy who would need to be in constant communication with the people working close with him.

Well, I think he’s scared of me. I think he thinks I’m way cooler than him. I bet he thinks if he texted me it would bother me. I’ll never tell him that I think he’s cool. He can read it in your article.

Emily Tarver stars as Pam in USA’s “Donny“ premiering Tuesday, Nov. 10th at 10:30 p.m. ET.

ModCloth Taps Lizz Wasserman as First Fashion Director

ModCloth, the retro-minded e-tailer that in January brought on Matt Kaness as chief executive officer, has just hired its first fashion director.
Lizz Wasserman, who is based in Los Angeles and will work out of ModCloth’s office there, will report to Kaness and co-founder and chief creative officer Susan Koger, who are both based in the brand’s San Francisco headquarters. Wasserman will create seasonal collections for ModCloth’s line of branded apparel, which was introduced in August.
Wasserman, who studied sociology at the University of Wisconsin, has spent time at brands like Free People and Urban Outfitters, and was most recently Global Creative Director at 20th Century Fox Film.
“Her expertise will be invaluable as we grow our namesake label into a true ‘collection’ of high-quality pieces that are joyous, whimsical and make you feel your best,” Koger said.
Wasserman said that she was drawn to ModCloth’s supportive community and its vintage DNA, and described her aesthetic as “simpler silhouettes in beautiful prints and easy fabrics, with standout pieces.”
In this newly created role, Wasserman will “have an immediate impact on our product narratives, visual concepts and overall brand storytelling,” said Kaness, who also spent time at Urban Outfitters (although the two did not work there

First Nighter: James Earl Jones, Cicely Tyson Play “The Gin Game”; Oren Safdie’s Unseemly “Unseamly”

If you think you’re about to hear anything critical of the two old pros James Earl Jones and Cicely Tyson in director Leonard Foglia’s revival of D. L. Coburn’s 1977 comedy, The Gin Game, at the Golden Theatre, you better think again. As two lonely residents at a home for the aged who find comfort playing cards with each other in a rundown backyard, they’re well nigh perfect–which is what you already knew they would be.

It may be overstating it to say the characters they play both find comfort in the gin game. Tyson’s Fonsia Dorsey is very happy with the cards she dealt, because she’s the one declaring “Gin” just about every time, whereas Jones’s Weller Martin, the supposed expert at the game, never appears to have a fighting chance against her.

His card-playing prowess, only worsening as the two acts march on, is, of course what Fonsia and Weller discuss repeatedly, but they get around to other subjects as well. One topic is their families, who are either literal or figurative distances from them. The goings-on at the home is another ready topic, and when one of the dances underway inside moves them, they even dance. Needless to say, that’s a big audience-delighting development.

Weller, who can be loud and prone to anger when losing, has a habit of swearing. It’s a character trait Fonsia dislikes. So Coburn goes for laughs by eventually having her lose control of her tongue. Putting four-letter obscenities into the mouths of octogenarians–okay, nonagenarian in Tyson’s case–is a cheap trick but it works.

This is the third time the crowd-pleaser has adorned Broadway–Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronin, Julie Harris and Charles Durning preceded the current stars–and the play is no worse for wear. Whether it was ever a flawless piece of writing is less certain. It does have a second-act problem, which is that Coburn knows what to do with Fonsia and Weller up to a point and then doesn’t reckon how to take them further. By the time the second act ends, it’s become too much a repetition of the first.

In addition to Jones and Tyson, who do have the advantage of sitting for much of their on-stage time, there’s another truly standout production feature. It’s Riccardo Hernandez’s set. Along with a handy card table and a couple of chairs for the card players to occupy, he’s piled any number of discarded wheelchairs and walkers against the upstage wall.

Those are a constant reminder that though they were once used, their owners are no longer around. Somehow keeping death as a constant adds vitality to the energetic Jones and Tyson. Fonsia and Weller may not have that much longer to enjoy their gin game, but as played by Jones and Tyson, the pair is far from adding any discarded device to Hernandez’s stack.
******************
Sexual harassment has been a topic of conversation for some time, but whether Oren Safdie’s Unseamly, at Urban Stages, adds anything to the welter of current examinations is questionable.

In a play that slowly disintegrates into hysteria, Malina (Gizel Jimenez) has come to lawyer Adam (Tommy Schrider) in hopes he will convince his firm to take on her harassment case against Standard apparel company CEO Ira (Jonathan Silver), whose sometimes thoughtful and sometimes careless treatment of employees is well known. (Does Safdie have former American Apparel head honcho Dov Charney in mind as a model for Ira? Most likely.)

Initially, Adam listens to the lithe and sensual Malina objectively, attempting while he takes notes to have her describe incidents that would hold up in court as undeniable instances of harassment. As she tells her tales of being involved with Ira over an eight-month period, Adam hears nothing he finds solid evidence and initially dismisses her. But as Malina recounts her first interview with Ira, the shameless womanizer materializes, and while Adam continues taking notes on the sides of Brian Dudkiewicz’s clean-walled set, Ira and Malina reenact their past.

As they do, Unseamly slowly changes from a play about sexual harassment into a soft porn charade with sexual harassment as its handy peg. The more Malina, in time changing into a black lace outfit, shakes her booty even as Ira shakes his–there’s even a Malina-Ira dance break that Jimenez choreographed–the more lawyer Adam loses his objectivity and begins to get drawn into behavior less reflective of a professional keeping his law firm uppermost in his mind. Eventually, he shows signs of being as sexually compulsive as Ira, even down to talking at Ira’s breakneck speed.

As the audience discovers nothing in Malina’s saga that shows her as being anything but complicit in her interactions with Ira, Unseamly takes on the appearance of an overwrought screed about all men being helplessly licentious where women, no matter how agreeable they may or may not be, are concerned. The unpleasant irony is that Unseamly ends up exploiting exactly what it pretends to be exposing.

One thing definitely true of Unseamly is that the non-stop hyperactivity demands three actors speaking and moving indefatigably. As directed by Sarah C Carlsen, Jimenez, Schrider and Silver are up for every bit of that.

First Nighter: Robert O’Hara’s “Barbecue” Sizzles a Bit, Sam Shepard’s “Fool for Love” is Catnip for Actors

The first act of Robert (Bootycandy) O’Hara’s Barbecue consists of four scenes, two each in alternation, depicting a lower-class white family and a lower-class black family on what looks like a picnic in a shady Middle America forest preserve.

Curiously, the five members of both families, on vivid display at the Public, share the same names–James T. (Mark Damon Johnson, Paul Niebanck), Lillie Anne (Becky Ann Baker, Kim Wayans), Marie (Arden Myrin, Heather Alicia Simms), Adlean (Constance Shulman, Benja Kay Thomas) and Barbara (Tamberla Perry, Samantha Soule).

As the act progresses and no actual barbecuing happens, it’s revealed that in each family unit James T., Lillie Anne, Marie and Adlean aren’t present simply to scream and shout at each other over long-brewing resentments. They’ve planned this outing as an intervention. Prone to drinking and drugging as they are–Lillie Anne more or less excepted–they’re worried about sibling Barbara, whose substance abuse apparently outdoes theirs by a country mile.

Since the actions of both groups virtually mirror each others’ and the term “bad behavior” only begins to describe how they engage intramurally (though more verbally than physically), the point playwright O’Hara’s looks to be establishing is that white trash and black trash are equally trashy.

And while some of the tactics they use to bait each other are occasionally amusing, there’s a whiff of superiority about his intentions. There’s the sense that O’Hara is sending a middle-class audience the snootily comforting “aren’t the less privileged just awful?” message. Not too accepting of him, is it? The poor(er) may always be with us, but that’s no excuse to denigrate them as relentlessly as O’Hara does almost to the act’s end when the two Barbaras, the supposed interventions, finally arrive.

But then the cunning dramatist pulls a fast one. Having led the patrons through four scenes that have more than started to try patience, he shifts gears in as radical a manner as any sleight-of-hand playwright has in recent, and even not so recent, memory.

As a result and because of the Barbecue structure, just about any further description of the action–and that means the entire second act–would turn into a monumental spoiler. Perhaps it’s acceptable to indulge a quasi-spoiler and report that for much of the comedy’s remainder the two Barbaras, who heretofore have said just about zilch, take focus. One of them begins to resemble an actual celebrity along the lines of Whitney Houston and one of them, a memoirist, feels partially derived from James Frey’s notorious account of his life as an addict.

In other words, O’Hara’s seeming satire of a stratum of American society morphs into a satire of a completely different stripe. He’s sending up commercial cynicism as manifested in contemporary America life. Okay, maybe it’s also fair to say he makes an implied larger point by focusing narrowly on publishing and Hollywood. In his wily way, he even gets around to an Oscar race.

While he’s at it, he’s created 10 juicy parts for his cast to play under Kent Gash’s colorful direction and in Paul Tazewell’s often hilarious costumes that take into account the attraction women often have to leopard spots. Perry’s Barbara is at first super-confident, as the script has it, but begins to crumble, where Soule’s Barbara, who’s initially slightly intimidated by those second-act circumstances, gains her footing with aplomb. The others grab hold of their exuberant roles as if they were caged lions thrown thick steaks.

Whether the elongated nature of the first act is compensated for by the second act–which surely depends on falling for the second-act development–is up in the air. But O’Hara can be thanked for taking the risk as well as for much of the furious humor he unleashes.
******************
Since Sam Shepard’s 1983 Fool for Love didn’t appeal to me then and not in subsequent productions I’ve seen, I wondered whether this latest one, at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel J. Friedman, would finally change my mind. Though when the lights went up on it, I was impressed by Dane Leffrey’s claustrophobic representation of a motel room on the edge of the Mohave Desert, nothing that ensued changed my ho-hum attitude towards the script.

Anyone who knows Shepard’s plays knows he’s impelled to assess the barren quality of American culture through depictions of the spiritually depleted American West. Fool for Love is no exception. (Mohave Desert = emotionally arid–get it?)

Eddie (Sam Rockwell) and May (Nina Arianda) are battling out their unspecified relationship alone, although sitting immobile in a chair just aside from the sterile motel accommodation is The Old Man (Gordon David Weiss.) The assumption is that the two are lovers, perhaps attempting to overcome an estrangement–or perhaps not.

For the longest time in the 75-minute one-act, The Old Man says nothing. Eventually, he addresses either Eddie or May, while whoever else is in the room hears nothing of what’s exchanged. Eventually roped into the fray is sincere gentleman caller Martin (Tom Pelphrey), who doesn’t quite know how to play the quivering vibes.

As those 75 minutes tick by, the connections between Eddie, May and The Old Man become clear. That’s to say they become clearer, although many patrons may well be left figuratively trudging through the Mohave sand, trying to catch up with what’s transpiring–and that includes an explosive before-fade-out occurrence that lighting designer Justin Townsend executes well. Sound designer Ryan Rumery also has a few ear-catching turns.

For patrons the effort put into making sense of events may not be worth it. What does go a fair stretch towards rendering the expended efforts rewarding are the performances. At first glimpsed sitting at the edge of the bed bent over with her hair hiding her face, tuft-like, Arianda plays the labile May as if she’s a tornado gathering force. Rockwell sees the cowboy-hatted Eddie as a not-yet-ignited stick of dynamite. He’s all contained menace. Weiss grabs attention for much of the time by doing nothing to grab attention and so is that much more attention-grabbing when he goes for it. Pelfrey does befuddled nice guy exactly right.

It may be that the lure for actors of such pungent roles explains the frequent Fool for Love sightings. Indeed, it may be that Shepard’s demanding work-out is more entertaining for the performers who get to take on Eddie and May than it is for anyone who gets to watch them.

Comedian Who Lied About Surviving 9/11 Opens Up For The First Time

Comedian Steve Rannazzisi, in his first public comments since he was exposed for lying he was in the World Trade Center during the 9/11 attacks, explained how he believed his deception protected him from “cruel” fellow comedians and defined his career.

Rannazzisi, star of “The League,” apologized Tuesday during a 40-minute interview on Howard Stern’s radio show and addressed last months’ New York Times story that revealed he wasn’t working in the Merrill Lynch office on the 54th floor of the World Trade Center south tower when the north tower was hit. Rannazzisi recounted the fake experience to interviewers for years and claimed the ordeal motivated him to follow his dreams of being an entertainer.

“Do you think of yourself as psychologically disturbed? How do you view yourself after doing this thing?” Stern asked.

“Psychologically disturbed — I don’t know if that’s the way to put it,” Rannazzisi said. “I do see someone and am starting to figure out more about myself: codependency and wanting people to like me and to make people happy.”

The “why” is still unclear, he said.

“It wasn’t calculated at all,” he said. “It was as simple as sitting at the Comedy Store and everyone being like, ‘Hey, you’re from New York?’ ‘Yeah.’ ‘Were you just there? You were around?’ ‘Yeah, I was downtown.’ ‘You worked there?’ ‘Yeah, I did.’”

Within seconds, Rannazzisi said he felt he couldn’t set the record straight.  

“You have like 15 seconds, I think, to kind of go, ‘Wait, hold on. Stop. I’m sorry. That’s not true.'” he said. “If you pass that 15 seconds … now, it becomes a thing where you’re like, ‘Now, I have to be the guy that’s very strange and weird and just said I lied about 9/11.’”

Once the fake story gained traction, Rannazzisi said the resulting sympathy gave him security in the brutal comedy community.

“I think it might have been like, comedians are cruel people, especially in the beginning,” he said. “And I kind of was like, well maybe people will not be as mean to me or not make as many jokes about me because they think that this is what I went through.”

When the Times confronted him last month with conflicting versions of his 9/11 story, Rannazzisi responded with a statement confirming that he had lied. The confession may be damning to his career, but he said he feels relief and is glad he can finally apologize.

“I know what I did was terrible, and I know that I hurt a lot of people — people that lost people, people that helped people survive — and those people, those are the people that I truly am sorry,” he said. “That’s why I wanted to come on here.”

Leaked ‘Game Of Thrones’ Video May Be Your First Look At Season 6

Filming of “Game of Thrones” season 6 is well underway. Thanks to the obsessive sleuthing of the fandom and some sneaky paparazzi work by enterprising locals, we already know a lot about what’s in store (including the fact that Jon Snow almost certainly did not stay dead). But we haven’t seen any footage from the set — until now. 

On Tuesday, Spanish fan site Los Siete Reinos posted a covertly shot video showing what seems to be a sword fight outside the Tower of Joy. The video looks like it was taken on a cellphone, a long distance from the set at the 900-year-old Castillo de Zafra, so you can’t make out much. But there’s clearly man-to-man fighting going on. Take a look:

Los Siete Reinos — Spanish for “The Seven Kingdoms” — posted still photos from the same sequence. They, too, are blurry and shot from afar. But the lack of detail didn’t stop “Game of Thrones” fan site Winter is Coming from speculating that the characters fighting are Ned Stark and Arthur Dayne, and that the woman in white standing near them is Ned’s sister Lyanna. 

Fans have suspected for some time that season 6 would include the Tower of Joy sequence. Casting calls for the show included a posting for a character called Legendary Fighter, who many believe is Ser Arthur Dayne, a famed Dornish member of King Aerys’s Kingsguard. The casting call said the character “carries a hugely famous sword on his back.” In “A Song Of Ice And Fire,” the book series upon which “Game of Thrones” is based, Dayne wields a sword called Dawn, which was forged, likely from a meteorite, thousands of years ago before the events of the series. 

The Emmy-winning fifth season of “Game of Thrones” brought the show’s plot nearly to the end of the events depicted in the books George R.R. Martin has published thus far, so even diehard readers are in the dark about much of what will take place in season 6.

But the fight at the Tower of Joy is an exception. We got some of the story — or at least Ned Stark’s memory of it many years later — in the first book, A Game of Thrones

The story goes that near the end of Robert’s Rebellion, Ned Stark and six of his companions rode to the castle in the Red Mountains of Dorne, where Prince Rhaegar Targaryen had taken Lyanna Stark after “abducting” her. Rhaegar had named the castle “The Tower of Joy.” When Stark et al. arrived, they encountered three members of the Kingsguard — Dayne, Ser Oswald Whent and Lord Commander Gerold Hightower — guarding the entrance.

A brutal fight ensued. Even though the knights of the Kingsguard were outnumbered, they managed to kill five of Stark’s party. Ned Stark later said that Dayne would have killed him, too, had his old friend Howland Reed — father of Bran’s traveling companions Jojen and Meera Reed — not saved his life. When Stark and Reed entered the tower, they found Lyanna dying in a “bed of blood.”

Here’s where things get really interesting. Before Lyanna died, she made Stark promise something. He never revealed what. But fans think that it concerned Jon Snow — who, the theory goes, was actually the child she had with Rhaegar. The bed was bloody, by this thinking, because Lyanna had just given birth. She made her brother promise to claim that Jon was his own son to keep him safe. 

There’s a bit more evidence for the R+L=J theory scattered throughout the books. But it all ultimately rests on the Tower of Joy sequence. Which is assumedly why “Game of Thrones” creators Daniel Benioff and D.B. Weiss chose to film the sequence for the next season. It could be their way of confirming, once and for all, the theory that Jon Snow is the son of Rhaegar and Lyanna.

It’s still not clear how the sequence will fit into the show. Season 5 began with the first flashback of the series — a childhood memory of Cersei Lannister’s. But everyone present at the fight is dead by the time season 6 starts — except Howland Reed. Many fans believe that Reed — who hasn’t yet made an appearance in the books — will reveal what transpired, and therefore Jon’s parentage, at some point in the last two books.

Maybe that’s what will happen in the show, too. But casting info makes it clear that this isn’t the only flashback we’ll see in season 6. So the prevailing theory instead is that Bran Stark will use his mysterious and growing powers to look back in time, and that the fight at the Tower of Joy will be seen through his mind’s eye.

The strongest evidence of this theory? Isaac Hempstead-Wright, the actor who plays Bran, was allegedly spotted at the Castillo de Zafra this week. At this point in the series, Bran is in a cave north of the Wall, thousands of miles from Dorne, so there’s basically no way he’s going to travel to the Tower of Joy in person. 

The bottom line? Jon is the son of Rhaegar and Lyanna. And we’re finally going to get confirmation this spring.

J.J. Martin Launches First Clothing Collection

TEST PATTERN: J.J. Martin can add a new line to her résumé: fashion designer.
The journalist and vintage fanatic on Thursday night held a cocktail with retailer Matchesfashion.com during Milan Fashion Week to mark the launch of a collection of dresses made with Italian manufacturer Mantero Silk.
For her first outing under the label LaDoubleJ Editions, she opted for a short-sleeved A-line style that hits just above the ankle, available in eight archival patterns dating from the 1910s to the Eighties.
“I’m a big maximalist. I love print, I love pattern, but I think you kind of need it in really simple lines,” said Martin, sporting one of her own creations in a bold pattern called Confetti.
“Basically, what we wanted to do was create the easiest, most fail-safe silhouette that literally looks good on every woman, and you’ll have no problems with those areas that every woman is concerned about: the hips, the butt, the stomach. You can have as much dinner as you want, you still fit in the dress,” she added.
Available exclusively on her Web site, LaDoubleJ.com, and Matchesfashion.com, the dresses retail for $ 480. Further collections are already in the works.
“We’re going to keep the silhouettes very simple. I do not

Karl Lagerfeld Unveils First Kids Collection

CHILD’S PLAY: Kids and grown-ups munched on cotton candy and Karl Lagerfeld-stamped marshmallows at an event to present the new Karl Kids collection on Wednesday at Karl Lagerfeld’s headquarters in Paris.
Workshops for kids included one to make a key chain in the shape of Karl Lagerfeld’s profile and a pattern coloring workshop where kids could dress a Karl Lagerfeld figurine.
Lagerfeld’s fashions are now offered for boys and girls from newborn up to 16 years old, along with a range of accessories including black gloves, a black tie and a Choupette headband, named after Lagerfeld’s pet cat.
The feline also appears as the whiskered logo festooned on the clothes.
Lagerfeld’s signature kids’ wear collection is set for spring 2016 retailing, with France’s Groupe CWF having the global license.
Selected pieces will be available at children’s e-retailer Melijoe in December before the full collection rolls out to multibrand stores and department stores internationally in January.
French actress Céline Sallette came with her 6-year-old daughter Alice. “She wants to decide what she wears now,” Sallette uttered with a sigh, while browsing the collection.
The actress has a flurry of films set for release by year-end including “Les Rois du Monde” and “Cessez-le-feu” with Romain Duris as well as the second season of

First Nighter: Matthew-Lee Erlbach’s “Sex of the Baby,” Phil Blechman’s “The Black Book”

Although Matthew-Lee Erlbach appears to have written myriad plays and tele-whatevers, I’ve only seen his one-man Handbook for an American Revolutionary. That was enough for me to be eager to see the next available work from him, which turns out to be Sex of the Baby, at Access, a Dragon-Man with a Suitcase production.

The first scene–in which sculptor Daniel (Devin Norik), one half of a mixed-race gay couple, interviews surrogate-mother candidate Bekah (Clea Alsip)–was so amusing as well as intriguing in terms of the issues potentially at play that I felt assured Erlbach had the goods.

Further assurance came with the second of the play’s 90-minute intermissionless scenes, all of which take place in the Access loft space, the playing area of which Joseph S. Blaha has turned into an enticing lower Manhattan loft apartment.

In this one Daniel and movie-mogul partner Michael (Korey Jackson), who’s skedded to be the sperm donor–“Who’s milk is going to be in the shake?” Bekah has already asked–are hosting best pals and another mixed-race couple, Erick (Erlbach) and T’Kia (Marinda Anderson), who are already expecting. Erlbach has impressively caught the tenor of young Manhattanites gabbing about their lives, and Erlbach as actor and the other three play the sequence with such natural polish that I was even more certain I was in sure hands.

Then came scenes three, four and five (the scenes are titled “Fertilization,” “Implantation,” “Gestation,” “Hormonal Changes” and “Birth Defects”), and along with them came Erlbach’s big letdown. Erlbach decides it’s high time to be dramatic–or, more to the point, melodramatic–and starts filling his work with twists that strain credulity mightily.

Suddenly, Daniel, who from the get-go seemed gay as a pink hat, falls for Bekah, and though he announced to her earlier that his low motility precluded him from pouring milk into the Bekah shake, he impregnates her. In subsequent revelations erupting during the three final scenes, Erlbach has it that Daniel must do some fancy manipulation to keep Michael from learning what’s transpired between him and Bekah and that the seemingly happy Erick and T’Kia are barely hanging on to their union and that Erick’s real crush is–.

But why go on about something with such a vague purpose–unless it’s meant to be a screed on contemporary selfishness among millennial privileged millennials? Adroit as the actors are, Erlbach certainly among them–and Michelle Bossy’s direction is adroit, for the most part–playwright Erlbach’s introducing bits of sitcom and then high histrionics and then a wild-eyed neighbor (Ali Sohaili) in what becomes an annoying mishmash is irreversibly off-putting. It’s the kind of off-putting that has a reviewer thinking twice when the next Erlbach work comes along.
******************
The Black Book, at ATA after a 2012 Araca Group run, takes place on a large chessboard realized by Ann Beyersdorfer. Seen from the moment audience members enter the small auditorium, it immediately suggests that dramatist Phil Blechman, who also directs, is about to make a point of life’s being a game of chess.

Yes, the old, dreary saw. And if that’s not enough to sink a theater lover’s heart even before the action kicks in, out comes a character listed in the program as C. C. (billed in one place as Anto Pereira, as Antonieta Pereira in another). She’s garbed in a straitjacket, the long sleeves of which hang loose. It instantly becomes clear she has the use of her arms in order to carry about, and often lovingly embrace, the available outsized pawns. She does so intermittently throughout the play.

In a program note, we’re informed that Blechman began The Black Book when a Syracuse undergraduate in response to a classmate’s suicide, which goes a long way to explaining why his play takes place on a fictional campus and exclusively involves students and teachers, with the exception of the institutionalized C. C.

It doesn’t explain why what occurs is so utterly pretentious, with C. C. shuffling around po-faced and a suicidal poet and C. C.’s brother Colin Archer (David Siciliano) not only menacing teachers and other students–including blonde Nicole (Haley Dean) for whom he has eyes–but also haranguing the audience, the members perhaps intended to be sitting in for other campus denizens.

At one point, stentorian Archer, who’s been bounding up and down the raked auditorium steps and causing a whole lotta shakin’, steps to the edge of the stage and declares, “I could say anything right now, and you’d listen to it.” Yes, we would but not without thinking, “I’m only listening because I can’t see any graceful way to leave.” He does this in addition to reading aloud a (not good) poem he’s written that’s been inserted in the programs for ticket buyers to have as their own.

As sound designer Christopher Marc repeats ominous stings throughout, it’s difficult for onlookers to determine what’s going on with English teacher Arthur Chase (Gabe Templin), his pal (and possible criminal) Axel Cooper (Sean Borderes), psychology teacher Riley Andrews (Catie Humphreys), Nicole’s boyfriend (Joe Reece) and school psychologist Julie Edwards (Margy Love).

As The Book Black–haranguer Colin keeps a black book before he gives it, I think, to Nicole–heads towards an end and an actual chess game is played, a puzzled patron begins getting the idea that a metaphorical chess game has been carried out by the figures, a game in which one of them is caught at having done something dire in the past that affected sweet little Nicole. But who can say for sure? I can’t. Nor have I any interest in trying.

From time to time sound supplier Marc also pipes in a male voice sing-songing the phrase “I am slowly going crazy.” Watching The Black Book, I, too, was going crazy–and not so slowly.

Planner First, Everything Else Second

This past weekend was a perfect example of why I prefer to be the first person hired during the planning process, and also why it’s the best decision for a couple to make. The details for the wedding this weekend all fell together, and there wasn’t a single moment where I was worried about the professionals working that day. And while I offer “Month Of/Day Of” and Partial Coordination services, Full Coordination & Planning is the best option offered to couples, by far.

For instance, when a couple gets engaged, there is an overwhelming sense of “what do I do first?”, which is almost always followed by a panic to do everything at the same time. Countless hours are spent flipping through magazines for inspiration and looking at websites for reviews of vendors that the couple has never even heard of.

When you begin with a planner, everything starts to calm down. There are no reality TV-worthy meltdowns about the budget and how you don’t know if you should pick a destination wedding or stay close to home. It’s like walking into a little room of heaven where you can let go of that tight grip of control, speak your mind about your wishes, and have someone else do all of the leg work. You will get everything from budget assistance to venue and vendor recommendations. These will be real recommendations based on real experience, and not that star rating garbage system on the internet – when anyone could be writing those reviews.

But maybe you like a challenge. You want the drama. Well, if that’s the case, then jump in headfirst and pick up a planner along the way. Book the venue, stretch the budget, and when you’re really feeling the heat, hire a planner. Just know this: what you’ve already done, the planner might not be able to undo, and furthermore, the planner is not responsible for.

Want an example? I’ve got 400. How about when the couple has picked the venue, put down the deposit (non-refundable, by the way) and finds out 2 months prior to the wedding that their vendors only have one hour to set up? One hour for flowers, music, photobooth, linens… and everything else. They take that information back to their vendors and the florist points out that without at least 2 hours, there will be an additional fee. Then the 20-piece band chimes in with the fact that they have equipment that will take at least 3 hours for full set up. Uh-oh spaghetti-O’s. Now what? Your planner that you hired post-venue, post-florist and post-band, cannot really help you here. You signed contracts with everyone and when you booked the venue, you probably didn’t ask how long you would have for set up. Why would you? You’re not a planner and you don’t know to ask those questions.

Then there is the issue of what a vendor promised you at a meeting you were at, which was never confirmed in writing, and is now being questioned. Did you have a planner at that time? No? Well, then it’s your word versus your vendor’s word. Odds are that if you had a planner they might have been at that meeting, and if not, they would have at least confirmed it all in writing so that there would be no confusion later. With a planner along for the whole ride, they can do all of your speaking for you, which means there’s no confusion and everyone is on the same page.

How about on the actual wedding day when the vendors that you secured are falling behind the timeline, while the vendors your planner brought in are doing their jobs? While your planner can guide your vendors along and try and keep things together, if you hired these people, you are basically responsible for that decision. Stylists taking longer than expected and thus, cutting into photography time? Much like if you use someone aside from someone that your planner recommends, if you booked this vendor pre-planner, you might just be stuck. Florist didn’t show up with the correct centerpieces? Maybe it’s a florist that your planner would’ve steered you away from way back when you started your planning process.

The bottom line is: Hire a planner from Day 1 and use them for everything they’re good at. This includes using their Rolodex, which can be worth the price of a full planning package alone. They can tell you which vendors are the real deal, and which ones are writing their own 5-star reviews. They can spot a problem with a vendor a mile away before you even know it will be an issue. They will ask the questions that need answers that you didn’t even think of. Most importantly, they can assemble a team that will work well together on your wedding day. Because when a hair stylist and a makeup artist clash, it’s pretty much like watching an asteroid hit the planet.

There are countless instances when a client comes to me with a problem and I think “if you had hired me first, this wouldn’t be an issue right now”. Don’t be that client. You wouldn’t hike Mt. Everest without a guide, get to the middle and then hire one, right? Your wedding is Mt. Everest. Bring a planner to avoid any and all avalanches.
