Ermenegildo Zegna Exhibit Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Brand’s Entry in RTW

MILAN — Who knew the Ermenegildo Zegna Group produced Emilio Pucci’s first men’s wear collection in 1968? And who knew Anna Zegna, president of Fondazione Zegna, worked with Gianni Versace on the designer’s first men’s collection in 1978?
These are only two of the surprising discoveries made during a preview tour of the exhibition “Uomini all’Italiana [Men Italian Style] 1968” staged at Casa Zegna, near the brand’s storied wool mill in Trivero, a one and a half hour drive from Milan. The exhibit, organized by Fondazione Zegna, celebrates the 50th anniversary of Ermenegildo Zegna’s entry into ready-to-wear and runs May 6 to Oct. 28. “These years were the beginning of the Italian fashion system and lifestyle,” said Anna Zegna. “Women’s wear was more established, while men’s wear was starting at that time.”

The exhibit also pays tribute to the namesake founder of the company, and to his sons, Angelo and Aldo. Ermenegildo Zegna first traveled to New York in 1938 to set up a branch, the Ermenegildo Zegna Corp., to meet Italian tailors, to work on direct distribution and “to fight the supremacy of English fabrics,” as claimed by a number of photos, ads and correspondence on

Etro to Kick Off 50th Anniversary With Men’s Presentation in Milan

MILAN — “They affectionately call me the upholstery designer here,” said Kean Etro with a laugh.
Tanned and refreshed after his Christmas holidays spent between skiing in the Dolomites and sailing across the Indian Ocean, the creative director of the men’s wear line at the family-owned company is brimming with energy as he walks through the collection in an exclusive preview with WWD. His interest in home interiors is reflected in his designs and the nickname also comes from his deep and extensive knowledge of habitats around the world.
“Habitat is also the house that surrounds you and that you wear as a dress,” said Etro affably.

A medallion detail from Persian carpets that is reproduced on exquisitely embroidered jackets in silk and cotton velour is just one example of Etro’s ability to import from interiors to fashion. The lining shows colorful Etro banknotes and is so carefully defined it would be worth wearing the blazer inside out — although it is not reversible, the designer pointed out.

Emma Stone Honors 50th Anniversary of Billie Jean King’s Triple Crown Win at the U.S. Open

On Saturday Emma Stone performed a very special tribute to Billie Jean King in honor of the 50th anniversary of the tennis icon’s triple crown win in 1967.

Together with Tony nominated singer/songwriter Sara Barellis, Stone paid tribute to King at a pre-match ceremony at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City, where the U.S. Open is currently being held.

In 1967, King won her triple crown by finishing first in the women’s singles, women’s doubles, and women’s mixed doubles championship at the U.S. Open.

RELATED VIDEO: Emma Stone Reveals Her Favorite Movie Moment of All Time

Stone is playing King in the upcoming movie Battle of the Sexes, which tells another remarkable story from King’s career.

In 1973, King famously defeated ex-champion Bobby Riggs at the Houston Astrodome in a match nicknamed “Battle of the Sexes.” Riggs thought there was no way a woman could beat him at tennis, but clearly he was wrong.

At the time so many people turned in to watch “Battle of the Sexes” that it became the most-watched sporting event of all time.

Curiously enough, during filming Stone rarely sought King out to discuss her character, although King had an explanation for that.

“She didn’t want to because I’m in my 70s, and she said I’m more fully formed as a person,” King said. “She said, ‘I want to know what was feeling at 28 and 29 when she played Bobby.’ That’s where she had to concentrate.”

Battle of the Sexes will be released in theaters on Sept. 22.

Dickies Commemorates 50th Anniversary of 874 Work Pants

Dickies is celebrating a birthday.
The Texas-based brand best known for its workwear, is readying a marketing campaign to commemorate the 50th anniversary of its classic 874 chino.
According to Michael Penn, senior vice president of marketing for Dickies, the campaign will “spotlight the workers who may not always receive the applause and recognition they should.”
He said there is an app on the company’s Facebook page where customers can submit their written story, image or video about how they wear their pants and what appeals to them about the product.
“We know there is so much loyalty for the pant out there that we’re excited to hear the latest stories from the folks that wear it day in and day out,” he said. “We plan to share the photos and videos across our social media channels and feature them on different pages of our web site. If we hear a really inspiring story, we look forward to sharing that customer’s content in whichever format serves their story best.”
The 874 was an evolution of Dickies’ original cotton work pants from the Twenties and incorporated polyester into the fabric to increase durability. Today, it is a 65 percent-35 percent polyester-cotton blend. It retails for $ 22.99, is offered

TV TONIGHT: ‘Day Of The Doctor’ Reunites Three Time Lords – Matt Smith, David Tennant, John Hurt In 50th Birthday Special

When is a TV show more than a TV show?

When it’s the 50th anniversary of ‘Doctor Who’, being shown on cinema screens around the world, amid plot hints and red herrings by writers, storyline clues pounced upon and debated by eager fans,

Because Steven Moffat and his team have been successfully secretive about the events around tonight’s festivities, we only know some bare bones.

Three Timelords unite for the 50th anniversary of ‘Doctor Who’

Special guests at tonight’s party include Daleks, Zygons and Elizabeth I. Current companion Clara (Jenna Coleman) is joined by a familiar face in Rose Tyler (Billie Piper), during three unfolding plots set in different times, destined to unite in one almighty battle.

Ingrid Oliver, Jemma Redgrave and Joanna Page are also on board, but the real birthday boys are Matt Smith and David Tennant, a combination enough to keep any more recent fans happy, plus the tantalising reappearance of John Hurt to explain away all those elliptical statements we’ve received thus far.

Who’d have thought a grouchy, grandfatherly figure would have stepped into a police telephone box in 1963 and, fifty years later, still keep us guessing?
