Rossignol Opens SoHo Store to Showcase Apparel Offerings

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

CFDA Teams With Project for Designer Showcase at Vegas Show

The Council of Fashion Designers of America is expanding its association with the Project trade show, starting in August in Las Vegas.
The CFDA x Project initiative will bring five men’s wear designers to the show at the Las Vegas Convention Center within a new section called N:ow Lab, a concept space that will rotate each season. Project is moving from its longtime home at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center to join the women’s and footwear shows at the convention center from Aug. 12 through Aug. 14.
The designers participating in the first edition are Kenneth Nicholson, Lukhanyo Mdingi, NIHL, Sanchez-Kane and Willy Chavarria.
Mark Beckham, chief marketing officer of CFDA, said this initiative is intended to serve as a business platform, or “matchmaking,” for these designers to connect them with potential retail customers. It will not feature runway shows, but will be a “more commercial” push that will include networking events between the brands, retailers, media and influencers attending the show.
The designers were chosen to ensure they have the wherewithal to produce and deliver any orders they might receive from retailers at the show, he said.
“As the men’s wear industry grows, our partnership with Project further reinforces our mission to strengthen the

The Iceland Airwaves CMJ Showcase

So you want to dive face first in the tangled, eccentric, all-around fantastic world of Icelandic music? You’re in luck, because there’s really only one place to start–the Iceland Airwaves music festival, in Reykjavik Nov 4-8, 2015.

“Iceland in November?” you squeak.


Heck yeah.

In true Icelandic fashion, Airwaves is set during some of Iceland’s harshest weather–and longest nights–to celebrate the best of the local talent. It’s designed as a showcase, and not just of the music. Airwaves separates the fans from the phonies.

Music Christmas

But every single one of the three Icelandic groups that I met with at CMJ’s first ever Icelandic Showcase (Mammut, Fufanu, and DJ Flugvél og Geimskip) agree that the music is well worth a little chill.

“It’s like music Christmas,” explained Mammut vocalist, Katrína Mogensen. And she’s not alone.


Each of the artists chimed in about the merry feeling and excitement they get from playing and attending the sprawling, eclectic festival. When asked how bands in the tight-knit, some would say “small” Icelandic music scene react to watching bands they routinely share stage space with, Fufanu front man, Kaktus Einarsson, seemed surprised by the question.


“We’re just so into each other.”

And he means it. Literally. “Our guitarist connects us to the hardcore scene,” he continues, “and our drummer plays in a reggae band.”


Steinunn Harðardóttir, the pixie wizard behind the turntables and drum samples of Dj Flugvel og Geimskip–translated as “Airplanes & Spaceships”–is another multi-band performer, appearing at Airwaves with three different bands. Probably the biggest departure from her ethereal DJ persona obsessed with space and evil cats is the rock three-piece, Skelkur í bringu, which translates to “Terror.”


Blurred Lines

That contrast is what makes Airwaves so great. It’s a festival where bands and genres from all over the world collide in the long dark of the Icelandic winter. And the results are sometimes frantic, but always interesting.

Katrina from Mammut claims, “One Airwaves we played eight shows in a single day,” an all too common feat during their 10-year Airwaves run. Steinunn played eleven shows at last year’s festival, and she’s scheduled for nine performances this November.

But prolific runs like that don’t just happen. Festival manager and talent booker since 2010, Glimur Atlason would know.

According to Atlason, Airwaves’ prolific performances stems from their simple three-point mission:

1. To put on a fantastic festival
2. To export Icelandic music
3. To promote tourism in the off-season

Amidst all the music, it’s easy to forget that the Airwaves festival originally launched in an IcelandAir hangar in 1999 (get it, “Air” waves) as a way to capitalize on the (then) end of the tourist season in September. But even then, one of the four bands that played was Icelandic legends, The Sugarcubes (sometimes known to the uninitiated as “the band Bjork used to be in”).

And yes, before you ask, Bjork is headlining this year.

The festival gets pushed farther back every year, and to many Airwaves has become the unofficial tourist season finale, which has seen a surge in recent years due to affordable flights, summer festivals like Secret Solstice and ATP, and the 2008 economic crisis dropping the ISK to reasonable levels for backpackers.

But despite its corporate origins, Airwaves has grown into the premiere Icelandic music festival while magically maintaining its grass roots feel.

“Airwaves is a showcase,” explains Mammut guitarist, Arnar Pétursson. “It’s a place for new Icelandic bands to get discovered and for established bands to play new songs–songs no one has ever heard.”

Katrina added, “Some of the best shows we’ve ever done have been at the off-venues at Airwaves.”

The “off venues” she’s referring to are part of the sprawling carnival feel of Airwaves decentralized layout. This year, thirteen venues across Reykjavik will play host to over 240 musical acts. Atlason claims this unique set up is what makes the festival such a success. It’s the “evolution of the modern venue.”

“No one wants to be outside,” Kaktus explains, “and that’s part of the magic. You’re trapped inside a crowded venue, so you listen.”

Maybe that simple element–the fact that no one wants to go outside during the crappy weather–is what makes Icelandic music so haunting and exuberant. Or maybe, I’m nuts.

Discover firsthand what Icelandic music (and winter) are all about at the 16th annual Iceland Airwaves festival in Reykjavik, this November 4-8.

One final piece of advice from DJ Flugvél og Geimskip:

“If you wait outside in lines, you’ll get sick.”

CFDA Plans Second Jewelry Design Showcase

DISPLAY CASE: The Council of Fashion Designers of America will hold a second iteration of its CFDA Jewelry Showcase at its New York City headquarters on Oct. 26. The showcase, comprised of 17 CFDA-member labels, will act as a group press day for participants. The CFDA held its first jewelry showcase in October 2013, and has revisited the idea after an outpouring of interest from jewelry design members.
“It helped each of the participants be in front of editors that they might not have been otherwise be in front of. The power of a group is stronger than the power of one — it’s about creating a collective force,” CFDA chief executive officer Steven Kolb said of the outcome of the 2013 showcase.
Of the CFDA’s approximately 500 member labels, some 79 are jewelry designers.
Kolb said of the organization’s showcase concept: “It’s to really put a spotlight on jewelry designers; women’s fashion week is always a big deal and  gives lot of attention to women’s designers. We launched men’s fashion week this past summer and that put a significant spotlight on men’s, so it seemed natural…to categorize other segments of membership.”
This same idea will soon extend to realms outside jewelry as well.

New Agency — State — Aims to Showcase Models’ Personalities

Rene Gonzalez, a seasoned model agent who spent years working between Wilhelmina and IMG, wanted to create a modeling agency that catered to a new generation of models in a changing industry, one in which a model’s personality — and social media following — has become more important than ever.
On Sept. 9, Gonzalez will launch State, a full-service New York-based agency that aims to not only rep models, but also to create role models. “We’re calling ourselves digital managers,” he said. “What we would like to do is let kids know that yes, you can be a model, and yes, it can be glamorous, but there are other things behind it.”
State will support its clients’ images but also their talents and interests with a focus on social and digital content. In terms of what he is looking for in new talent, Gonzalez cited diversity and depth. “We really want models that have something to say,” he said. “When we do interviews, we ask what they’re doing in school. We’re about building who you are. The criteria is open for us; it’s about what makes you interesting to a larger audience.”
The agency represents about 30 models. Among them is Arizona native

Lakme Fashion Week to Showcase 100 Designers

MUMBAI, India — There is even more glitz and party spirit at Lakme Fashion Week as the event continues the 15-year celebrations that began with the LFW summer-resort season last March.
The five-day winter/festive season opened Wednesday featuring 100 designers, a big leap from 84 in March. It is being seen as a time to take stock, both of the industry and of the event, which opened with a pre-event show on Tuesday by long-established designer duo Sandeep Khosla and Abu Jani.
The show set the tone for pomp as well as partying with glamorous embroidered evening dresses, a cream and gold color palette and retro music that had the audience foot tapping.
“We have the senior most fashion designers such as Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, Ritu Kumar, Tarun Tahiliani, Neeta Lulla, Anita Dongre and then we have the younger designers who are launched with the event. That’s the charm of Lakme Fashion Week,” Saket Dhankar, vice president and head of fashion at IMG Reliance Ltd., said.
The fashion week is organized by IMG Reliance Pvt. Ltd., a venture between Reliance Industries Ltd. and sports marketing and management company IMG Worldwide, in collaboration with beauty brand Lakme, which is a subsidiary of consumer goods

YSL Safari Jacket to Get Paris Showcase

SAND STORM: French stylist, designer and collector Olivier Châtenet is hoping to share his passion for vintage fashion with the world. He has assembled around 15 looks incorporating the famous YSL saharienne, or safari jacket, from 1969 to around 1975. They will be on display at the Salon du Vintage, a vintage fair held on Oct. 17 and 18 at the Carreau du Temple in Paris.
“[The sarahienne] had various variations including trench coat, dress, jumpsuit, with lacing, and a palette of sandy tones,”Châtenet explained. “The first one was worn by Veruschka in Vogue Paris in 1968. Then, it was part of the collection in 1969.”
Considered a specialist on Yves Saint Laurent, Châtenet recently worked as a consultant on Bertrand Bonello’s “Saint Laurent” biopic. He owns more than 3,000 pieces from Yves Saint Laurent. “I stopped counting after 3,200,” he said with a laugh.
