Ones to Watch: Fumito Ganryu

PARIS — After making an impact at Pitti Uomo last June with the presentation of his first namesake collection since quitting Comme des Garçons, Fumito Ganryu is capitalizing on the momentum of the category he’s best known for — streetwear — and taking on Paris.
Ganryu — who counts among his peers “bad boys” Facetasm’s Hiromichi Ochiai and Sasquatchfabrix’s Daisuke Yokoyama — worked with longtime collaborator 6Up on the production of the Paris show Tuesday at the Hôtel d’Évreux. “It’s something people need for the 21st century,” said the designer of his direction, though it “doesn’t have to start with a new material or new technologies.”
Instead, explained the designer in an interview in the run-up to the show, the aim is to present his vision of the future “in the simplest way,” cutting through the “disorder” of mainstream brands in a saturated market that, for him, are just churning out “revivals of a heritage look.”
His first collection, with its future-wear vibe and deconstructed styling (think Neoprene hoodies tied at the waist to create a seamless apron effect or a yellow jacket attached to the front of another yellow jacket that gives a weird surrealistic feel), represented “one small facet of my

CFDA Introduces Sustainability Initiatives to Help Guide Designers Looking for Cleaner Ways to Work

With “where to begin” being a common conundrum for many brands considering sustainability, the CFDA has launched its Sustainability Initiatives to help designers do their part to clean up the fashion industry.
In line with the United Nations’ call for the fashion industry to act on its global mandate on sustainability, the CFDA has rolled out a four-part strategy. Many designers’ questions may be answered by referencing the first edition of the CFDA Guide to Sustainable Strategies, the Sustainable Strategies Toolkit, the CFDA Materials Index or the CFDA Sustainability Directory.
While Eileen Fisher, Stella McCartney and other designers have been committed to trying to clean up the industry’s excessive waste for a while, many less established brands are examining sustainability for the first time. The United Nations Alliance on Sustainable Fashion will stage its launch event March 14, during a media event of the 4th U.N. Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya. Just as consumers have learned about the environmental farm-to-table choices, sustainability supporters are hopeful that greater awareness about the need for sustainable fashion will lead to changing the consumption and production habits.

Galvan Pre-Fall 2019

Galvan’s German-based Atelier proved inspiration for the brand’s latest array of playful glamour. Berlin, specifically in the late Seventies, when David Bowie’s move to the city influenced its youth culture and nightlife set the backdrop.
“What was interesting, particularly, when he was there was this surge, almost, of freedom and rebellion in the midst of all of the downy, slightly depressing atmosphere that happened under the shadow of the wall,” Galvan’s Katherine Holmgren explained. “It was all about electrifying nightlife…the fantasy world that a lot of the youth created to escape their everyday.”
The Bowie centric-film “Christiane F.” inspired a satin bomber, while his iconic outfits inspired a fringed and sequined jacket paired with flared, pleated trousers. There were touches of slightly unconventional, slightly over-the-top glamour that melded nicely with the brand’s DNA of cleaner, pared down silhouettes. There were discotheque, glam-rock inspired dresses — sequined in green, with beaded fringe in blue, liquid like in rose-gold — that held the brand’s sought-after effortless feel. Sharp tailoring and separates rounded out the expanded collection — an all-white suit or beaded black bodysuit — with the right amount of modern glamour you could see on any one of the brand’s quickly growing

This is not the first time Leon fronts a fashion campaign as she was tapped as one of four models for the images of Stella McCartney’s Pop fragrance in 2016.
The 22-year-old Leon also recently walked her first runway show last September during New York Fashion Week, appearing on the catwalk of Gypsy Sport.

All the Confirmed Characters in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3

It’s safe to say that in the 10 years since Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 was released on consoles in 2009, the world’s understanding of the Marvel Universe has changed a bit, to put things lightly. Not only has the MCU taken a firm hold of the pop culture zeitgeist, but the expectations for things like crossovers and genre mashups — two of the Ultimate Alliance mainstays — have gone through the roof. The thrill of seeing heroes teaming up and facing off against familiar bad guys has become less a novelty and more an expectation, meaning Ultimate Alliance has got its work cut out for it and then some.

Luckily, based on the announcement trailer, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 seems to be meeting that challenge head-on by borrowing just the right amount of the MCU’s flair for the job. With thirty characters featured in the first trailer alone and a subtitle of “The Black Order,” a direct draw to fans of last year’s mega-blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, Ultimate Alliance 3 is bringing the Marvel Universe to life in a brand new way.

Brett Johnson Opens Milan Showroom

Brett Johnson is hoping to expand his reach in Europe and has opened a showroom on Via Manzoni in Milan to showcase his fall collection.
The American designer launched his eponymous collection in 2013 and opened a showroom and retail store in New York’s SoHo neighborhood in 2017. That location will remain open.
Johnson said the collection is currently carried in 15 wholesale accounts in Europe and Asia and the goal for this season is to add another 30 doors. The showroom in Milan is 3,200 square feet.
The collection offers classically inspired outerwear, knitwear, trousers and leathers inspired by Johnson’s upbringing in Virginia. Key pieces include soft-shoulder blazers in cashmere and alpaca, a variety of bombers, parkas, field jackets and peacoats in leather, suede, shearling or cashmere. The color palette is mainly neutral with white, forest green, mustard yellow and a variety of blues and grays.
Johnson, the son of Black Entertainment Television founders Robert and Sheila Johnson, got his start designing his own interpretation of the Nike Air Force One sneakers and then branched out into apparel. The Brett Johnson line of outerwear, knitwear, woven shirts and trousers are all manufactured in Florence.

United Nations Alliance on Sustainable Fashion Plans for March Debut in Nairobi

The United Nations Alliance on Sustainable Fashion will be officially launched March 14, during a media event of the 4th U.N. Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya.
While different U.N. institutions have tried to encompass fashion in various sustainability initiatives, this will mark a more comprehensive approach to address all aspects of a sustainable fashion industry. Just as consumers have learned about the environmental farm-to-table choices, sustainability supporters are hopeful that greater awareness about the need for sustainable fashion will lead to changing the consumption and production habits.
The Alliance on Sustainable Fashion is comprised of U.N. and specialized agencies, including Connect4Climate-The World Bank Group, Ethical Fashion Initiative-International Trade Centre, FAO, ILO, U.N. Climate Change (UNFCCC), UNECE, U.N. Environment, U.N. Global Compact, U.N. Office for Partnerships and other groups, according to Michael Stanley-Jones, the co-secretary of the new alliance. The objective is to “coordinate the U.N. system’s response to the challenges that the textiles, fashion and accessories sectors face in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” he said.
Stanley-Jones said, “Fashion is cross-cutting, so to capture the opportunity that fashion presents, the U.N. and its partners need an integrated approach that cuts across individual Sustainable Development Goals to realize the multiple benefits offered

Grin Acquires WearAway for Undisclosed Sum, WearAway Founder to Oversee Fashion, Beauty, Retail Partnerships

Grin, a Sacramento, Calif.-based influencer marketing technology company has acquired WearAway for an undisclosed sum.
As part of the deal WearAway founder Lee Greene has joined Grin as vice president of partnerships with a focus on fashion, beauty and retail. In the four years since she started WearAway as a rental marketplace and online showroom for influencers to borrow designer apparel and accessories for content and events, the company attracted more than 5,000 members, 7,000 products and 900-plus brands.
WearAway is Grin’s first acquisition. As for whether WearAway will still exist as a site, it hasn’t been decided what Grin will do with the domain, according to Grin’s chief executive officer Brandon Brown. “We’re still trying to figure out how do we integrate those assets into the company and what that looks like,” he said, adding that Grin might potentially absorb Wear and not continue it.
Founded in 2014 as a cross-promotion marketplace for influencers, Grin moved into influencer marketing in May 2017, Brown said. The two companies were connected through a mutual friend who thought the acquisition would be “a really good fit and spoke with the founders,” Greene said. “We immediately connected and really hit it off.

Italy’s Men’s Sales, Exports Grow in 2018, Brands Support MFW

MILAN — Trade policies, Brexit uncertainties, social protests in France and European political elections are factors that could influence the economy this year, but Brunello Cucinelli is unwavering: “Of one thing I am sure: it’s not true that men don’t want to buy, I don’t believe this at all.” With “at least three different posts” on social media per day, men “must change depending on the occasion. We take more care of our looks because we will be posted. It’s a new way of life,” he argued.
Figures released by Centro Studi of fashion industry association Confindustria Moda support this positive take — even 2019 is seen as “stable” compared with 2018 and showing “limited dynamism,” based on the spring 2019 orders. That said, the Italian men’s wear industry is expected to report 2018 sales of 9.44 billion euros, up 1.5 percent compared with 2017.
Men’s wear accounts for 17.5 percent of Italy’s textile and fashion revenues and 27.9 percent of all apparel. The first half of 2018 was particularly brisk, with exports up 5.5 percent, but business slowed starting last summer. Consumer spending in Italy was defined by the association as “one of the worst [since] 2013.” However, 2018 year-end figures

Miuccia Prada’s Take on Freedom of Speech, Cultural Appropriation

SPEAKING FREELY: Miuccia Prada is one of fashion’s most intense and thought-provoking designers. She challenges herself, surrounded by artists and intellectuals and, during interviews, ponders the answers and often throws in more of her own questions. On Sunday, ahead of her fall men’s show in Milan, the designer candidly approached the subject of cultural appropriation and freedom of speech — and of thought — clearly issues that have been top-of-mind after recent accusations of racism against the brand, which her company has vehemently denied.
In December, Prada faced online accusations that animal-like figurines and charms in its stores and windows evoked blackface. The group subsequently issued a statement saying it “abhors racist imagery” and vowed to withdraw the items from “display and circulation,” while explaining that the figures are “fantasy charms composed of elements of the Prada oeuvre” and known as Pradamalia. The brand nonetheless pledged to improve its “diversity training.”
“I increasingly think anything one does today can cause offense,” Miuccia Prada said Sunday, speaking in soft tones, at the headquarters of the cultural Fondazione Prada. “There can sometimes be a lack of generosity but, on the other hand, how can we know all cultures? The Chinese protest, then the Sikh,

Dsquared2 Men’s Fall 2019

In the Instagram era, experiences are becoming key to making a difference in the real, physical environment. While images and videos available on smartphones can help a brand spread its message, a proper event can guarantee guests will go back to their homes with special memories and emotions. This is what Dean and Dan Caten must have thought when they conceived the format of their fall runway show, with guests standing by the catwalk as at a music concert and bars serving drinks. And, indeed, the music was great — a mix of pop, dance and Madonna’s iconic songs. The thing is, people weren’t there for the soundtrack or the drinks. They were supposed to be there to see the clothes. Even if Dsquared2’s intentions were noble — offering a fun, entertaining and unconventional experience during fashion week — the result missed the mark, with several editors leaving before the end of the show because they couldn’t see a thing.
Those who managed to sneak in through the crowd witnessed a pop, rock ‘n’ roll, grungy, disco extravaganza. After presenting a pre-fall collection focused on chic, wearable pieces, the Caten brothers used their fall coed runway to send out a clear

Front Row at Prada Men’s Fall 2019

PRADA’S BRITS: British actor Callum Turner took in his first Prada show, although he said he had been to Milan a few times. “I love Milan and managed to see friends in a short amount of time,” he said, adding a few Italian words. Coming up for Turner are a BBC “conspiracy thriller” and his role as Frank Churchill in a new rendition of “Emma,” opposite Anya Taylor-Joy playing the titular heroine. “We need more Emma,” he joked about the latest cinematic version of the Jane Austen novel. Filming “in and around England” will start in May, directed by this “really cool American photographer and director Autumn de Wilde, who did Beck’s album and lots of iconic rock ‘n’ roll photos.”
British actor Will Poulter said he was in Milan just for the Prada show, although he did manage to squeeze in one Italian meal. “Yeah, we went to Pizza Express,” joked Turner, who was sitting nearby. The Brits never leave their sense of humor behind, do they? Poulter is currently playing Colin, a computer programmer, in “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” on Netflix and will star in “Midsommar,” a film about a summer holiday gone wrong, which is due for release later this year.

Meet P448, the Sneaker Brand Wayne Kulkin Is Betting On

MILAN — If you think the sneaker trend is about to end, think twice.
Wayne Kulkin, former vice chairman and chief executive officer at Stuart Weitzman, who oversaw the label’s global expansion during a 26-year tenure, is among the latest executives to have thrown his hat into the sneaker ring.
In 2017, he teamed up with Hilco Global’s chairman and ceo Jeffrey Hecktman to form StreetTrend LLC, a holding company focused on bringing Italian heritage and craftsmanship to the sneaker arena. He soon identified P448, an Italian niche sneaker brand founded in 2014 by Marco Samorè and Andrea Curti, as a label with great potential.
“It’s an oversaturated market, but on the other hand, there’s a complete casualization. I don’t think this is going to change and [we will] go back to men wearing suits and ties and women wearing dresses all day long, so this trend is here to stay. It’s comfortable, it feels good, it’s easy to wear and cool.”

After helping to expand the label’s global retail network by signing an exclusive distribution and marketing agreement with P448 in 2017, Kulkin deepened his commitment to the brand by acquiring a stake in the company last summer.

Thom Browne Attends First Ermenegildo Zegna Show

FAST FRIENDS: “He’s my new best friend, I love our friendship,” gushed Thom Browne of Gildo Zegna, chief executive officer of the Ermenegildo Zegna Group. Although his own show is slated for Paris next week, the designer took the time to fly to Milan to show his support for Zegna, which took a majority stake in Thom Browne Inc. at the end last August. While Browne demurred from detailing any specific future plan for the brand, he said there will be “a lot more stores opening in the next couple of years.”
In a sign of Zegna’s pull in China, Hong Kong singer and actor William Chan Wai-ting attended the show, flanked by, among others, the brand’s longtime friend, actor Daniel Brühl; model Winnie Harlow, who snapped photos of the looks throughout the show, and American actor McCaul Lombardi, who fronted Zegna’s advertising campaign with Robert De Niro in 2017. Michele Norsa, vice chairman of Missoni, was also at the show, having joined the board of Zegna in 2017.

Kiton Men’s Fall 2019

“Respect” was one of the words spelled out on the walls of the Kiton showroom in Milan. “We must not forget where we come from,” said chief executive officer Antonio De Matteis. “I think too many are losing their way.”
To avoid that trap, Kiton’s core customer remains central to the brand and he is a global traveler—whether for business or pleasure. And that man needs a light, deconstructed suit that can be pulled out of a suitcase without any fuss. “Formal wear becomes smart casual clothing,” said De Matteis. One that comes with price tags that can reach between 30,000 and 50,000 euros in the case of soft vicuña jackets.
Exclusive fabrics continued to add new touches to Kiton’s staple Prince of Wales or houndstooth jackets. Four-ply cashmere jackets and hoodie shirts stood out, flanked by military styles similar to parkas with fur collars or reversible quilted jackets and a cashmere coat lined in weasel, nutria or mink combined with a double face garment with an extractable fleece lining.
Mariano and Walter De Matteis, the twin brothers and sons of the ceo, presented the third collection of their KNT line, which employs the same premium fabrics as Kiton but with a sportier

Giorgio Armani Shows his Love of Colors

TRUE COLORS: The photographic exhibit “Fabula,” unveiled Friday evening at the Armani Silos space, isn’t what one would really expect from Giorgio Armani–and the designer knows it. “I was tickled by the idea that people think I love neutrals so much, that this is a contradiction and that Armani doesn’t love colors, but, actually, here they are,” said Armani during a walkthrough. “I fell in love with these color palettes, and I had fun with the images.”
Indeed, the exhibition of more than 250 images by French photographer Charles Fréger, his largest to date and running until March 24, is joyful and entertaining, capturing a variety of subjects from around the world, ranging from the Finnish ice-skating team and images of young Sumo wrestlers and Sikh soldiers to whimsically and artfully painted Jaipur elephants or quirky yet traditional masked costumes.

Two photos by Charles Fréger 
Charles Fréger

Armani, who years ago staged his own “Eccentrico” exhibition said there is a “need for eccentricity today. He lamented how generally “we are now stupidly attracted by small and banal things, but we need to be stimulated.” In fashion, too, it seems “anything now is an invention, but that’s not true. We must be inventive.”
