Vincent Van Gogh Museum Teams With The Daily Paper for Collaboration

The post-Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh has influenced legions of designers, photographers and creatives over time. Hints of his mastery have been interpreted in collections for Dries van Noten, Balenciaga, Maison Margiela, Versace, Jeremy Scott for Moschino and others through the years.
The late fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh was such a fan that as a young man he hitchhiked to Arles, France, to spend eight months retracing Van Gogh’s route there to study the painterly light and landscape that the artist made his signature.
Now, a more literal fashion interpretation has transpired thanks to a collaboration between The Daily Paper and the Van Gogh Museum. Retailing from $ 77 to $ 308, the new collection stemmed from the museum contacting the company as part of the Van Gogh Connects program, which aims to make the museum more relevant to young adults with a bicultural background, a museum spokeswoman said. “The bicultural background of the founders of Daily Paper dovetails with this project, and they are also role models within the aforementioned target group,” she said.
“The story of Vincent van Gogh immediately appealed to the founders of Daily Paper: Just like Van Gogh, Jefferson Osei, Hussein Suleiman and Abderrahmane Trabsini chose a more difficult path,

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.

Report: Chiefs, Saints, Seahawks, 49ers were only teams to claim Suggs

Only four teams put in a waiver claim for Terrell Suggs. In addition to the Chiefs, who were awarded Suggs because they had the highest waiver priority of any team that claimed him, the Saints, Seahawks and 49ers were the other teams to claim Suggs, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. There was some thought that the Ravens would claim Suggs and bring him back to Baltimore, but there was no real reason for him to do so: Because the Ravens are last in the waiver order, they could have just let him clear waivers and then signed him after that.

Taylor Stitch Teams With Stetson on Capsule Collection

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

Luxury Lingerie Brand Hanro Teams With The Little Market for Latest Collab

Retail companies and brands continue to rack in record sales from this year’s Black Friday through Cyber Monday shopping weekend. But Hanro is giving back — just in time for Giving Tuesday. 
The luxury lingerie and loungewear brand is the latest retailer to team with The Little Market, donating 100 percent of proceeds to the nonprofit when shoppers purchase The Little Market x Hanro lingerie bag. 
“It was a natural fit,” Hannah Skvarla, cofounder of The Little Market, said of the partnership with Hanro. “We are like-minded companies that prioritize quality and value conscious consumers.” 
The travel-size canvas bag, which retails for $ 15, is available while supplies last in Hanro’s Los Angeles and New York City stores, as well as at shop.hanrousa.com. 

Proceeds from the lingerie bag will go to support The Little Market.

Skvarla, who cofounded The Little Market with reality star and entrepreneur Lauren Conrad as a way to support female artisans, said she’s thrilled with the Hanro collaboration. 
“Not only is the piece timeless, adorable and practical, but proceeds from every bag sold will provide economic opportunity to women around the globe,” she said.

Fendi Teams With Kueng Caputo for Design Miami

MILAN — Fendi is bringing a touch of Rome to Miami.
Marking the brand’s partnership with Design Miami, now in its 11th year, the Rome-based company has asked design studio Kueng Caputo, formed by Lovis Caputo and Sarah Kueng, to create new pieces meant to decorate the exterior colonnade of the brand’s headquarters at the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana.
The 20th-century building, also referred to as the Square Colosseum, is characterized by imposing white travertine arched colonnades, which were a starting point for the Zurich-based duo. The resulting collection of 10 pieces is dubbed “Roman Molds.”
“We always look for something different and surprising that will represent the brand and we only work with people who will be able to express elements of Rome and of the brand,” said Fendi chairman and chief executive officer Serge Brunschwig. “After last year’s fountains created by Sabine Marcelis, we are back to emphasizing the Palazzo della Civiltà this edition.”
Inspired by the fur technique developed in the Fifties by Fendi, in which grosgrain and velvet ribbons were combined with fur, the designers combined the brand’s supple Selleria leather with the terracotta brick. They developed the soft leather into a structural, more solid material. “The brick is another link to antique

Luka Sabbat Teams With Champion on Collab Celebrating 100 Years

The artwork for Luka Sabbat’s new collaboration with Champion stemmed from an obsession of his: scans of brain activity.
“There’s this thing in Malibu that my friends and I have done,” Sabbat explains over the phone on Halloween afternoon. The multihyphenate “Grown-ish” actor, influencer and artist is on his way to get strawberry pancakes with a friend, then they’re going trick-or-treating. “This doctor puts plasma in your blood, you do a bunch of exercises and it tracks your brain activity. It lets you know if you have an overactive brain, a sleepy brain and which parts of your brain you’re using most.
“I have an overactive brain,” he adds. “I always have to do a million things.”
But the project with Champion currently has his full focus. As part of its 100-year anniversary campaign, the clothing brand tapped Sabbat to not only create a piece of art that’ll appear on the Champion reverse weave hoodie, he also worked with the nonprofit organization Art Start, with whom Champion has partnered.
Sabbat says he was inspired by what he saw from youth involved in Art Start’s Emerging Artists program — and reminded of his own artful inclinations from when he was younger.

EXCLUSIVE: Acne Studios Teams With Russell Westbrook for Men’s Capsule Collection

TEAM PLAYER: According to Acne Studios creative director Jonny Johansson, the inspiration for the label’s capsule collection with basketball player Russell Westbrook was simple: “Denim and Russell — nothing more, nothing less.”
After casting the Houston Rockets point guard in its spring 2019 campaign, the Swedish label is continuing its creative partnership with Westbrook by debuting a 10-piece denim-heavy men’s wear collection, which includes outerwear, oversize shirts, jeans and shorts.
Launching Oct. 28, the capsule was teased by Westbrook himself, who wore some of the pieces to attend the Acne Studios men’s spring 2020 show in Paris. Prices start at 280 euros, or $ 310, for a pair of shorts, while jeans are priced at 320 euros, or $ 355, and jackets 550 euros, or $ 610.
In addition to an Eighties-style light blue acid wash denim, the boxy silhouettes were also done in a turquoise version, Westbrook’s favorite color. The hue was used on a half-zip Windbreaker featuring a large patch pocket on the front and drawstring hem as well as a denim utility vest with oversized front pockets and piping along the seams.

Shaq Loves Big Guys, Hates Super Teams

NEW YORK — Shaquille O’Neal is a champion of the big guy.
The retired NBA star, who played for the Magic, Lakers, Celtics, Heat, Suns and Cavaliers during his 19-year Hall of Fame career, is now a sports analyst for “Inside the NBA” on TNT, an actor, real estate developer and businessman.
But it was in his role as the big and tall style ambassador for J.C. Penney that brought O’Neal to New York Monday night. He’s had a collection of big and tall men’s wear with the retailer, called Shaquille O’Neal XLG, for just under a year, and this spring, partnered with the store and Wilhelmina modeling agency to host a model search. The three winners — Chukwukere “A.K.” Ekeh, Ricardo “Ricky” Vichot and Jordan Alexander “Alex” Cochran — are featured in the Penney’s fall campaign for the collection and have been signed to Wilhelmina’s Titan division of big and tall models.
Prior to a panel discussion, O’Neal sat down with WWD to discuss what it’s like finding clothes when you’re 7-feet, 1-inch, 325 pounds, how he thinks the Reebok brand has been diluted since being owned by Adidas, and his distaste for NBA “super teams.”

Founded in 2016 by Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio, the women’s wear label is going to offer a full digital immersion into the brand with a web site that combines an online store with a content section peppered by collaborations with up-and-coming talents from different fields, ranging from art, cinema and photography to food and design.
In addition, the e-commerce site — operated by Milan-based company The Level Group, which manages the online shops of a range of brands including Dolce & Gabbana, Stuart Weitzman and Woolrich — won’t only carry the label’s ready-to-wear and accessories collections. It will actually sell every two months a limited-edition capsule dedicated to a specific theme. Along with pieces designed by Tordini and Ambrosio, the capsule will include items developed by other brands.

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.
