Eugenia Kim Marks 20th Anniversary With First NYFW Presentation

Accessories veteran Eugenia Kim marked her brand’s 20th anniversary as a novice at New York Fashion Week.
The brand held its first fashion week presentation at Pier 59 studios on Saturday, presenting a gaggle of models dressed in high-cut swimsuits — accessorized with Eugenia Kim hats, shoes and bags.
Kim said after 20 years, it finally made sense to hold a presentation given her label’s recent expansion from solely a hat business to one that offers shoes and bags as well.
“I feel like it’s hard as an accessories brand if you are only showing things in still life — it’s hard to bring it to life. But now that we have hats and shoes and bags we can create a full look. I think it’s a moment for us to reemerge and change people’s understanding of us as an accessories brand,” the designer noted.
Kim launched shoes in 2014, while bags were introduced for spring 2017.
The designer said between 60 and 70 percent of her business is presently dedicated to hats, while the remainder is nearly evenly split between shoes and bags. She hopes that ratio will level out in coming seasons.
Kim greatly expanded her bag offering for spring — growing it from

Sean Celebrates 20th Anniversary With Addition of New Collection

Sean Cassidy was on vacation in Paris when he discovered Emilie Lafaurie’s men’s wear collection and became enamored with the line’s updated traditional designs.
That chance meeting led to Cassidy tossing aside a career in children’s book marketing to become the exclusive distributor of Lafaurie’s collection in the U.S. through his own stores.
This September, Cassidy will mark the 20th anniversary of Sean, a three-unit men’s specialty store business that carries only Lafaurie’s designs. And to celebrate the milestone, the two are teaming to introduce Beau, a special capsule designed by Lafaurie to appeal to the Millennial man.
“I really don’t like the term ‘Millennial,’” Cassidy said, “but we’re targeting the guy who is just getting on his feet.”
Beau will consist of 40 pieces including suit separates, shirts and sweaters that can be mixed and matched to allow younger guys to look professional and polished but still contemporary. The collection is manufactured in Europe, primarily France, Portugal, Spain, Bulgaria and Germany.
Prices will range from $ 98 to $ 118 for shirts, $ 88 to $ 128 for sweaters, $ 98 to $ 128 for casual pants and $ 395 to $ 435 for suits. The average price for a Emilie Lafaurie suit is $ 600.

Step Afrika! 20th Anniversary Home Performance Series

With the hit of a spotlight downstage right the shadowy silence of Ira Aldridge Theatre was replaced by the crisp, syncopated sounds and movements of the Step Afrika! dancing troupe.

Founding in 1994 primarily by Howard University students Step Afrika! has spent the last 20 years cultivating, teaching, and sharing the African-American tradition of stepping. Popularized by African-American fraternities and sororities as early as the 1970s, stepping has historical and cultural ties that draw back to South Africa’s Zulu people. Today stepping can be found in theater productions, television commercials and there is a huge non-collegiate competition circuit that starts as early as primary school age students. It’s evident that Step Afrika! values and is concerned about the future of the art form, but this tremendous milestone served as a great opportunity to look into the past from where it all started.

On June 4 in the Blackburn Center a VIP Gala was held to celebrate the many accomplishments that the first professional arts group dedicated to stepping. Founder and Executive Director, C. Brian Williams along with Step Afrika! staff, alumni and the current cast welcomed cooperate sponsors, elected officials and public supporters, before the opening night performance. The Home Performance Series featured seven sets, some debuting for the first time others reaching back to the very founding of the company. Two days later at the midway point of the performance schedule the spark from the cast is still apparent. What can go underappreciated during these kinds of showcases is striking the delicate balance between paying homage to the choreography this ensemble is known for and allowing the natural artistic evolution that comes with new influences.

Back in Ira Aldridge the program has moved from the center stage to the back of theater. Percussionists Abdou Muhammad with the spotlight on him walks unhurriedly down the aisle yet his hands are striking his drum rapidly, building drama with every replication of his beat. Now onstage at standstill Muhammad is playing at a furious pace and crescendos as the cast takes their place onstage to start the next piece. Under the artistic direction of Mfon Akpan and Christopher Brient the full and complete use of the space was an achievement. Throughout the entire show you felt involved and enveloped in the sights and sounds of the production. If you were not diligent to read the playbill the quick pace of the changing sets could throw you off but the overall narrative of the show was easy to grasp.

Three of the sets struck really distinctive notes. The Wade set starts with a bittersweet singing of “How I Made it Over” by cast member Brittany Smith. The scene is a baptism. In the foreground a minister is strapped in knee-high boots ready to walk into the river where for a time in this country was the only place available for African- American to perform this religious rite. Everyone has a part to play, the newly cleanse saint, the exuberant church lady, other surrounding church supporters, and the choir. The mood slowly breaks from somber and builds to jubilation as the choir adorned in blue robs now giving a stirring rendition of “Wade in Water”. This is the art of stepping being uses as tool to pay homage to the deep-rooted tradition of the past. There is even an acknowledgment of the connections that could not be broken by our fateful trip across the Atlantic. For the same knee-high boots worn to protect Sunday’s Best in this land were worn by South African gold miners who would give birth to the Gumboot dancing tradition.

The next/step: hip hop set starts with two very different sounds bites. The first set within a news studio clearly after the acquittal of George Zimmerman for his involvement in the death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin. A pundit tries to explain what happen between the Sanford teenager and the neighborhood watchman within the context of white fear of black criminality. The thrust of the commentary is if the black community is interested in avoiding the sad ritual of burying more of its children then this group must comport themselves in way to never frighten white people.

As this clip plays the cast dressed in baseball caps, jeans, and sneakers swirl around two younger cast members. Given the illusions that they are trapped within a cyclone type force, the movements are fluid but have sharp breakout into tap and modern dance.

The second soundbite is from the streets of Baltimore, after the uprising following the death of Freddie Gray. A news reporter ask a protester about stores that were burnt during the unrest and seemly without delay the protester asked why did it take the burning of stores to garner genuine news coverage. Through the twisting and untwisting of bodies and perspectives the audience is presented with stepping as protest art.

The finale of the show is Ndlamus. The cast is dressed in full Zulu garb and the heart of this set is each individual member stepping to the center of the circle to perform their best freestyle moves. Courtney Thrower leap with power and style that would leave an Olympic high jumper envious. While Danielle Dubois Glover peered into the audience and used our gaze against us as she playfully moved eliciting smiles and at other times smoldering that it felt like a taboo to stare. As each cast member came to the forefront that was no appearance of competition, in fact it was sprit of collaboration as they cheered each other on and did not hide their appreciation for a well-executed move, but before long everyone had their turn and it was over. This was a great display how the art of stepping can unify.

With 30 years of history and tradition stepping is sometimes still described by using other art forms, but it is not line dancing, tap, nor Irish rhythm dance. It’s stepping. As Step Afrika! has mixed other elements of dance into stepping they are showing it’s versatility, but it is still strong enough of artistic expression to stand on its own.

As the curtain call turned into a roll call each cast member stepped forward smiling brightly each bowing deeply than flashed their fraternity and or sorority hand signs, while the audience show their gratitude. The majority of the Divine Nine Originations were represented in the cast, which was fitting since those bodies laid the foundation for stepping, as we know it. In the playbill the question was asked what will Step Afrika! look like in another 20 years? If this Home Performance Series gives us any indication into the future of Step Afrika!, it will be connected to its history, aware and willing to remark on the present, while looking to inspire the next generation.

See the Magic and Power of Brazilian Martial Art Capoeira at the Ginga Mundo Group Batizado June 18th, 19th and 20th in New York City

On June 18th, 19th and 20th, 2015, the Ginga Mundo school of the Brazilian martial art Capoeira will be hosting a Batizado (or “baptism”) at Essex Street Academy, 350 Grand Street, Manhattan, along with performances and workshops that are open to all schools as well as open to the public. The event is co-hosted by Ginga Mundo Instructor Pena Verde, Professora Pimentinha, and world famous Capoeira Mestre (or Master) Sabiá, coming directly from Bahia, Brazil.

2015-05-26-1432670366-2005211-IMG_9541.jpg

Instructor Pena Verde demonstrating a Capoeira kick called an Armada Martelo at Sacred Studio in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, where he teaches class (all levels) on Tuesdays at 6:00pm and Saturdays at 2pm. (Photo by Ace Murray / Brooklyn Juice Photography.)

Capoeira — pronounced “capo-wey-da” — is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines dance, music, percussion, songs, self-defense techniques and acrobatics. According to legend, Capoeira began over four centuries ago when African slaves in Brazil trained to fight under the guise of dance in order to fool their masters and liberate themselves. Graceful sweeps and cartwheels performed to rhythmic drumming concealed their deadly techniques of attack, defense and trickery…and a totally one-of-a-kind martial art emerged.

Capoeira is played in a circle, called a roda (pronounced “hoda”) to the sound of live music — specifically songs written for the sport, and instruments (the Berimbau, the Atabaque, the Pandeiro and the Agogô) which determine the rhythm, pace and style of game that is played.

2015-05-26-1432670829-8318153-SabPemstreetroda.jpg

Mestre Sabiá playing with Professora Pimentinha at an outdoor roda in Belgium he organized. As you can see from all the onlookers behind the players, Capoeira always draws a crowd. To see more click here.

Capoeira is, in a word, beautiful, and mesmerizing to watch. There is a joyful and playful spirit to Capoeira (in fact, in Portuguese you joga or play Capoeira) and, because it utilizes dance and acrobatics and players don’t just punch, kick and hit each other, there is a mystery and magic to the martial art that make it truly unique.

However, Capoeira is also a dangerous martial art of deception and trickery in which the whimsy of a smiling Capoeirista (as practitioners are called) performing an acrobatic movement (referred to as Floreios — or flourishes — in the sport) can turn on a dime into a powerful kick to the torso or take down at the heels that sends the opponent flying across the roda and landing ingloriously on their back. If a real fight has broken out (which can happen amongst the professional ranks) it will lead to real injury. This is a part of what is referred to in the sport as Mandinga, which is the trickery and deception that is central to a powerful Capoeira game because the most successful attempt to kick or take-down your opponent is the one they don’t see coming.

A Batizado is a traditional Capoeira event where new players are initiated and Capoeiristas advance in rank. At a typical Batizado world-class professional Capoeiristas from all over the city and the world come to help initiate new players, play each other, and to perform for the audience. I would describe Capoeira in that sphere as a combination between Carnival, Cirque du Soleil and a back-alley favela street-fight. It is truly a sight to behold. And a Batizado is the place to witness it.

Of course, nothing as spectacular as Capoeira comes easy. Unlike many other ancient physical arts that have been commercialized and watered down (think of 6 week online Yoga teaching certificates and Karate Black Belts given out at strip malls) Capoeira has stayed true to the historical standards, thresholds and rigor that make it so spectacular. No amount of money can pay for a rank – it must be earned through years of training – and there are very few Capoeira masters in the world, and those few who have achieved it have devoted their entire lives to the art.

But like any great achievement, gaining any real skill and rank in Capoeira is worth it. And the rigor and rewards can be seen at Pena Verde’s classes.

2015-05-26-1432671324-9534647-IMG_9530.jpg

Students train individual movements in formation (such as the Negativa seen above) which are assembled in sequences, and all of which require a tremendous amount of strength, training, agility and flexibility to get right. (Photo by Ace Murray / Brooklyn Juice Photography.)

2015-05-26-1432671616-4940268-IMG_9445.jpg

Students learn dozens of basic kicks, ducks and maneuvers which can be assembled in infinite variation, and practice them in a game of constant motion and surprise, as seen above with Pena kicking a Bênção and a student practicing a duck, or Esquiva, all done to the type of game determined by the music. (Photo by Ace Murray / Brooklyn Juice Photography.)

2015-05-26-1432671665-2687792-IMG_9474.jpg

Students spend years learning how to do the first, basic movement of Capoeira, which is the Ginga (or swing), which Pena can be seen teaching a white chord (or beginner) how to do above. (Photo by Ace Murray / Brooklyn Juice Photography.)

2015-05-26-1432671704-798698-IMG_9363.jpg

Pena with Cordão de Ouro guest Faisca leading the roda on the Berimbaus. All Capoeiristas must learn how to play the Berimbau, which is the primary instrument of Capoeira. The pace and rhythm of the Berimbau determine what kind of game players play — São Bento Grande (high, fast and combative); Benguela (medium to slow and more towards the ground); or Angola (a game with a heavier emphasis on trickery played close to the floor). (Photo by Ace Murray / Brooklyn Juice Photography.)

If you want to see the magic, excitement, danger and power of Capoeira up close, or if you want to take the workshops and / or join in playing in a Batizado roda, the Ginga Mundo Batizado is the place to do so. See details below:

The Batizado and workshops will be held at Essex Street Academy, 350 Grand Street, Manhattan. All Capoeira schools welcome, and events and workshops are open to the public.

Designs for 20th Century Interiors


From Art Deco and the Bauhaus to the explosion of colour in the 60s and the return to minimalism in the 90s, this volume explores the 20th-century approach to designing interiors. It features a selection of original sketches, drawings and CAD (Computer Aided Design) printouts from the National Collection of Designs at the V & A. Furniture, ceramics, sale catalogues and other items from the V & A collections provide clues as to the relationship between initial idea and finished product. The illustrations show the innovative and often cutting-edge designs produced by some of the leading designers of the day. Four key sections – living rooms, kitchens and dining rooms, bathrooms and bedrooms – not only demonstrate a range of ideas for the domestic interior, but also highlight the huge lifestyle changes that occurred across Europe and America during the 20th century. Looking at the tension between the ‘traditional’ and the ‘new’ looks, the book also examines the importance of image to 20th-century consumers of designed products.

20th Century Photography


The history of photography began some 150 years ago, but only relatively recently has it been fully recognised as a medium in its own right. Cologne’s Museum Ludwig was the first museum of contemporary art to devote a substantial section to international photography. The L. Fritz Gruber collection, from which this book is drawn, is one of the most important in Germany and one of the most representative anywhere in the world, constituting the core of the museum’s holdings.This book provides a fascinating insight into the collection’s rich diversity; from conceptual art to abstraction to reportage, all of the major movements and genres are represented via a vast selection of the century’s most remarkable photographs. From Ansel Adams to Piet Zwart – the best and most important photographers of the century are listed in alphabetical order, with images and biographical information.It offers more bang for your buck! ‘…a fast-food, high-energy fix on the topic at hand’ – ‘The New York Times Book Review’.

20th Century Fashion

20th Century Fashion


Passion for fashion. Between the first decade of the 20th century, when women were still locked into figure-shaping corsets, to the last years of the millennium, when sexy sweats and low-rise jeans became must-have status items, fashion evolved from a luxury enjoyed by the highest echelon of society to a global business that whisks trends off the runway and into the stores before the last supermodel has left the catwalk. From full skirts to miniskirts and morning coats to leisure suits, men’s and women’s clothing design evolved so rapidly that it was all one could do to keep up and stay in style. Each decade is now associated with definable fashions, short-lived fads and signature silhouettes. And in recent decades, retro has become de rigueur, as designers continually recycle the past for modern-day inspiration. Featuring over 500 ads from the Jim Heimann Collection, these fashion advertisements from 1900 to 1999 give readers a stylish retrospective on the century that defined, redefined, and reinterpreted fashion as we now know it.Arranged by decade and bursting with illustrations, the book’s introduction, chapter text, and year-by-year timelines explore major trends in fashion – from a speciality business to the mass market. Highlighted throughout the book are the historical events, key magazines, the influence of movies and pop culture, and important trends, brands, and retailers. Whether you’re a clothes horse or a fashion amateur, this visual history will provide a comprehensive guide to the evolution of 20th-century style.
