Intimate Apparel Brands Target Bigger Market at CurveNY

NEW YORK — The CurveNY trade show, which took place at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center last week in New York, had a brand new location. As opposed to being at the far end of the venue, it was connected to Coterie, which was a welcome change for intimate apparel buyers and retailers who are attempting broaden their customer base by aligning more with ready-to-wear and offering fashion pieces.
Paul Stuart made its CurveNY debut with a line of made-to-order women’s robes that retail for $ 595. The company introduced these robes shortly after Paulette Garafalo joined as chief executive officer in the middle of 2016. The CurveNY show was their first attempt to wholesale the line, which the company said has been well received — they picked up three new stockists.
Ginia, a 40-year-old Australian sleepwear brand that started selling in the U.S. a year or so ago, is known for its silk pieces that blur the line between nightwear and ready-to-wear, but in order to appeal to more customers, they’ve introduced a silk cotton blend set of pajamas that retail for $ 255 — its silk sets are around $ 300. The brand, which is sold at retailers including Saks Fifth Avenue and

MILAN — Stone Island continues to expand its retail network.
“We are opening a boutique in Venice in the first semester of 2018 and we are looking for a location in Tokyo,” said Carlo Rivetti, president of Sportswear Co., which is Stone Island’s parent firm, adding that the company is also scouting stores in Milan to relocate its unit in the Italian city.
The Modena, Italy-based company counts 20 stores.
These include a 5,382-square-foot flagship in Los Angeles, which was officially inaugurated earlier this month.
“This is not only our biggest store but also the most beautiful,” Rivetti said enthusiastically. “Since we opened last summer, we can say that it has been working really well, exceeding our expectations.”

Located at the corner of North La Brea Avenue and West 1st Street, the flagship occupies an entire building and features extensive windows facing the street. Designed to carry current collections as well as an exhibition space dedicated to making customers more familiar with the brand’s heritage, the store’s interiors are marked by the presence of blue crystal walls separating the spaces, which are decorated with the brand’s iconic Rose of the Winds logo.

Joseph Fiennes Says ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Made Him An Even Bigger Feminist

It’s hard to work on a TV show like “The Handmaid’s Tale” and not be “jolted” into a “state of consciousness,” according to Joseph Fiennes. 

Fiennes plays Commander Fred Waterford, the leader of the oppressive dystopian republic called Gilead in Hulu’s hit series “The Handmaid’s Tale,” based on the book of the same name by Margaret Atwood. The book has been heralded as a feminist classic and (after some initial back and forth) the show seems to be following suit. So it comes as no surprise that Fiennes says he’s become an even bigger feminist after playing the Commander on a set full of iconic women like Elisabeth Moss (the show’s protagonist Offred) and Yvonne Strahovski (Serena Joy, the Commander’s brilliantly sadistic wife).

In a June 15 interview with Marie Claire, Fiennes said the series has really awoken him to women’s issues ― especially since the “most important people” in his life are his wife and two daughters. 

“Certainly the show has jolted me into a much more alert state of the inequality amongst the sexes,” he said. “By virtue of that, I feel much more switched on to feminism, and what it means and stands for. I want my daughters to live in a world where there is equality and parity of pay. We’ve got a long way to go. I read a statistic that if you’re a Hispanic woman it’ll be over 200 years until you achieve parity of pay. So yes, the show has jolted me into a state of consciousness.” 

The show has jolted me into a much more alert state of the inequality amongst the sexes. By virtue of that, I feel much more switched on to feminism, and what it means and stands for.
Joseph Fiennes

Fiennes also spoke about the eery way the dystopian future depicted in “The Handmaid’s Tale” has begun to feel closer to real life over the last year. From the U.S. pulling out of the Paris climate deal to the constant war over women’s bodies and reproductive autonomy, Fiennes pointed to the parallels between fictional Gilead and the United States in 2017.

“When you wake up and you see that America has pulled out of the climate deal in Paris, that sends huge messages about putting coal before the planet. Gilead has suffered from a fragile ecology that is now toxic and affecting fertility rates,” Fiennes told Marie Claire. “There is truth to it ― there is connection, themes, and parallels, sadly. It’s getting sharper and sharper, especially for women ― the autonomy of their bodies, and pro-choice vs. pro-life. Look at the administration, the imbalance of the female presence ― there’s a lot to draw on.”

One silver lining? The protests and resistance the U.S. has seen since President Donald Trump took office. 

“It was wonderful seeing the woman’s marches, and seeing numbers bigger than the president’s inauguration,” Fiennes said. “It gives one great heart that there are people present, alert, and awake, and voicing their frustrations. We need more of that.”

Head over to Marie Claire to read the rest of Fiennes’ interview.

How To Get An 86 Percent Bigger Chipotle Burrito For Free

Sadly, Chipotle’s chips and guac will probably never be free. But Apartment List’s Dylan Grosz says a super-sized, overstuffed mega burrito can be yours for the cost of a standard order if you follow his 6 genius hacks. The prospect is thrilling, to say the very least.

Bigger is better — especially when it comes to Mexican food — and Grosz says his tips allow patrons to upsize their Chipotle burritos by 86 percent. 

Contrary to the conventional wisdom associated with ordering a burrito, Grosz suggests ordering a burrito bowl. By his calculations, the bowl comes with 15 percent more ingredients in total. Just ask for two tortillas on the side, and you’re on your way to maximizing. Sure, you’ll have the wrap the thing by yourself, but you’ll get more bang for your buck and master the art of a tight roll

Another way to make your order hefty is to go halfsies on everything. Grosz says ordering two half portions of a filling will yield more mass than asking for one full portion. For example, if you order half portions of two different meats, he says you’ll get 54 percent more meat (though you may be charged a little extra for more expensive meat, he notes). 

Grosz did more math than most people do when eating fast food to unearth the slickest, most resourceful secrets for getting a 31.7-ounce burrito for the cost of a 17-ounce burrito. Check out his four remaining supersized Chipotle tips at Apartment List.

American consumers enjoy few things more than outwitting corporations and getting free food, and Chipotle isn’t the only place where a little smarts gets you a lot more. At Starbucks, for example, you can get a tastier, more powerful and less expensive cappuccino if you order a “short” size.

At McDonald’s, you can get a Big Mac for the cost of a McDouble, an average savings of just over $ 3. Just order a McDouble and ask (nicely) for special sauce, lettuce and onion in lieu of pickles and ketchup, and you’ve got yourself a Poor Man’s Big Mac. And finally, at Arby’s, you’ll save if you order two Junior Roast Beef Sandwiches instead of one Classic Roast Beef sandwich. Cool beans beef, right?

 Here’s to eating bigger, better and freer, America!

Mens Health Power Training: Build Bigger, Stronger Muscles Through Performance-Based Conditioning

Mens Health Power Training: Build Bigger, Stronger Muscles Through Performance-Based Conditioning


One of the nation’s elite strength and conditioning coaches presents a unique training program designed to help men achieve functional strength and muscular balance throughout their bodies For decades, the conventional measure of an individual’s strength was the amount of weight he could bench press. Now, that measure is being challenged by expert trainers like Robert dos Remedios who argue that the variety of movement patterns used in functional training is the real key to getting bigger, stronger, and more powerful. In Men’s Health Book of Strength, this acclaimed collegiate strength and conditioning coach describes in detail the methods he has used to develop hundreds of Division I scholarship athletes, including several current NFL players. The key features that make this book a standout in the fitness field include: exercises geared toward functional strength that can be utilized in real-world situations, from playing sports to lifting furniture training sessions that are short, intense, and highly effective compound, multijoint exercises that replace the less-effective isolation exercises found in many fitness books no-nonsense dietary information utilizing a new and innovative food pyramid developed by the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition that will optimize strength gains, recovery, and physical progress
