Uniqlo Partners With Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to Launch Katagami Collection

LINE THEM UP: With art pretty much always being in fashion, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has teamed with UNIQLO to launch the Katagami UT collection.
Inspired by katagami stencil from the museum’s collection of Japanese art, there are eight T-shirt designs for women and seven for men. The artsy items are being sold in Uniqlo stores and through its e-commerce site, as well as through the MFA Signature Shop. This launch builds upon the 10-year partnership both parties formed last year.
Hand-carved from paper with intricate designs, katagami stencils are traditionally used to dye cotton, silk or other textiles for Japanese garments. MFA curators worked closely with Uniqlo to select patterns from the Museum’s collection of 4,200 katagami stencils, most of which were brought to Boston by William Sturgis Bigelow, who was one of the first Americans to live in Japan. Bigelow played a key part in establishing the Japanese collection at the MFA, which now totals nearly 100,000 objects in all genres. The Uniqlo-MFA collaboration makes its debut 108 years after the MFA held an exhibition spotlighting katagami stencils — not only as tools, but also as works of art in their own right.

Independents’ Day: Mr. Sid Celebrates a Half-Century in Suburban Boston

The story begins when Sid Segel opened a small tuxedo rental business in suburban Boston. His sons, Ira and Robert, used that business as the seed to open Mr. Sid in 1967.
Today, that small shop has morphed into a 10,000-square-foot upscale men’s store in Newton Centre, Mass., that is run by Sid’s grandsons Stuart and Barry. The brothers, whose late father Ira was an institution in the men’s wear industry until his death in 2015, celebrated the milestone with a black-tie event last week. Later this month, the Segels will take the plunge and open a second store in downtown Boston in the newly developed Seaport district.
Here, Stuart Segel talks about the anniversary, the planned expansion and the qualities that have enabled Mr. Sid to survive.
WWD: Managing to survive as an independent retailer for 50 years is quite an accomplishment. How did the business get its start?
Stuart Segel: My grandfather, Sid, had a tuxedo rental business and had a branch in Newton Centre. My father and uncle opened their business on Sept. 25, 1967, and eventually it transformed into this. They decided to call it Mr. Sid because back then a name meant a lot for credit purposes.

Training Her Curves – Boston

Training Her Curves – Boston


Also available in the collected version Training Her Curves – Episodes One Through Seven For two years, I’ve kept secret the burning crush I have on my super-sexy, totally dominant boss Dylan Kehoe. As far as Dylan is concerned, I’m the office shadow that brings his coffee, answers his calls and books his paid submissives. All of the women are petite things, most of them with little to no substance. That’s not me. I’m a big girl with big curves. With the company expanding into designer lingerie and kinky clubs for the ultra-rich, this may be my one chance to find out if Dylan could ever desire a girl my size. You see, his brother is head over heels in lust – maybe even love – with the plus-size fetish model contracted to be the face and body of the club and clothes. If Dylan can’t see the sexy in that relationship, then it’s time for me to move on. I just hope I don’t get my heart broken before I discover the truth. “Training Her Curves” is a series of episodes (a serial) featuring three billionaire siblings in search of their happily ever after (with a few fun and very racy quirks to keep things hot). Just as your favorite television show (especially those with an ensemble cast) may shift focus between characters on an episode-by-episode basis, the loves and lives of big brother Dylan, younger brother Jake and Riona, the baby of the family, unfold around one another. EPISODE GUIDE Episodes 1, 2 and 4, feature Jake and Alexa (as told separately in THC Chicago, Miami and Dallas): As a plus-size fetish model, Alexa Hunt never expected the chance at landing a million-dollar payday, especially as the spokesmodel for an upscale line of clothing for dominatrices and female submissives. All she has to do is survive the audition – a photo shoot at Chicago’s ultra private Century Club, a pleasure house for the rich. During the first half of the shoot, she can’t help but notice a man in the crowd who keeps watching her. He thinks he has her figured

MassArt Gives Boston Fashion Sense

Cutting edge, trendsetter fashion? Yes!But in Boston? Don’t make me laugh! C’est impossible, right? Wrong.

When I moved back here three years ago from Washington, DC (not exactly the epicenter of fashion either but several measuring tapes ahead of Bean Town), I bemoaned the lack of intentional fashion, as opposed to the accidental or incidental that is Boston’s paradigm. Determined to uncover any latent possibilities, I set out on a style quest that has turned up a few gems.

Most recently, Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt)’s formidable fashion design curriculum and senior collections made me a believer. On May 9, 2015, the art school that parallels New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology and Parsons fashion design programs showcased its 108th student fashion show, entitled “Vision.” (A previous commitment kept me from the show itself, but I viewed several of the collections beforehand.) Anna Wintour and Tim Gunn surely would have coveted my first peek at these boutique-ready garments.

MassArt professor James Mason, himself a 2006 alum who worked in retail as well as designed his own collections before returning to teach, curated this year’s show. He, along with other department instructors, help hone the skills and dreams of the young, talented designers. The program doesn’t force themes (à la Project Runway) upon students, but rather allows them “to do what they do best,” says Mason, adding, “I love what I do.”

While a student entering the Fashion Design program need not have sewing skills, s/he must possess a passion for fashion. Senior Megan Reynolds, whose collection, “Pangaea Apocalypse,” I found to be one of the most moving, said her inspiration was “the apocalypse… with survivors picking up and creating their own personal style.” She employed silhouettes that juxtaposed a half skirt shape with trousers and colors (some hand-dyed with curry and turmeric) that mixed winter with fall. It is a remarkably emotional collection for someone of Megan’s youth because of the maturity of fabric and color selection and the courage of its interchangeable gender notes and androgyny. It was no surprise she cited recent CFDA awardee Hood by Air as one of her designer inspirations.

2015-06-16-1434467035-694677-Unknown7.jpeg

MassArt seniors work on their final collection for the entire year. They are given carte blanche in terms of self-expression. Over the course of four years, students study pattern drafting, illustration, computer creation, draping, women’s and men’s wear, tailoring, made-to-measure, bridal, fashion history and more. They also spend time working in teams. By sophomore year, they have finished three full garments; by junior year, seven and senior year, 10. According to Megan, MassArt gives students “time to create… and think things through,” along with training in “craftsmanship.”

Although I was only able to view a portion of the featured fashion lines, I was duly impressed. In addition to Megan Reynolds, the following designers offered unique and highly polished collections:

Emelie Bergh’s “Second Shift” collection showcased soft, transparent and hand-dyed fabrics crafted with painstaking detail.

2015-06-16-1434468381-4261593-BertonephotoEBergh2.jpg

Victoria Braga’s “Sweet” was inspired by homemade desserts, hence the peach, white and gray palette, silk screened fabrics and smoothly interchangeable pieces.

2015-06-16-1434468275-722950-DomenicophotoVBraga4.jpg

Kim Nowers showed her “Theresa Elizabeth” collection, aptly titled because it felt quite erudite with its burgundy palette, hand-applied rosettes, exquisite fit and Charles James worthy draping.

2015-06-16-1434467243-5192135-Unknown2.jpeg

Lindsay Hills titled her collection “Distress” meant quite literally. Items often featured unfinished hems or torn edges on soft fabrics and dark palettes mixed with harsh elements such as belts and suspenders.

Margaret Galvin’s “Inferno”, based on Dante’s Inferno, explored lavishly clad characters in looks like mashed red velvet suiting, burnished leather or soft, pure white folds.

2015-06-16-1434468474-1305255-DomenicophotoMGalvin2.jpg
Photo by: Pino Domenico

Rachel Krafton’s “Framework” played creatively with new shapes, a mixture of textures including non-traditional fabrics constructed to display metaphors such as the wearers being “the same women though all not going to the same place.”

2015-06-16-1434468560-5541264-BertonephotoRKrafton2.jpg
Photo by: Richard Bertone

And finally, the narrative in Carly Hempel’s “You Need Me” reflected on “women’s bodies and insecurities.” The models appeared confident, though, highlighting clothing that hugged the body via soft knits and impeccable construction lines.

2015-06-16-1434468623-8395327-BertonephotoCHempel2.jpg
Photo by: Richard Bertone

As I listened to student designers discuss their work with faculty panelists, I was struck by their varied methodologies as well as the diversity of the designs themselves. Some had complex stories and descriptives while others eschewed any deep meaning or explanation.

My only regret is that I did not see all of the collections as I’m certain there were many more showstoppers. With each senior class show, MassArt continues to establish its firm fashion footing well beyond Boston while concomitantly securing Boston’s often elusive style presence.

Since Boston

Since Boston


Twelve years ago, Carole Samuelson was burning the candle at both ends. At one end, was her strong attraction to Grayson Smith, and at the other was Peter Jones. These conflicting relationships led to a breakup hurting Grayson, and was followed by her marriage to Peter. When Peter dies in a car accident, their marriage is cut tragically short and Carole is left with a 6-month-old daughter. Now, after twelve long years, Carole, a freelance photographer living in Boston, and her ex-love, Grayson, an antiques dealer in La Jolla, California, are reunited at a wedding in Boston on Columbus Day weekend.

Boston and the Dawn of American Independence

Boston and the Dawn of American Independence


In 1760, no one could imagine the American colonies revolting against Great Britain. The colonists were not hungry peasants groaning under the whip of a brute. They lived well. Land was cheap, wages were good, opportunities abounded. While many colonists had been in the New World for generations, they identified with Britain, and England was still “home.” Yet in the space of just 15 years these sturdy bonds snapped. Boston – a town of just 16,000 – lit the fire for American Independence. Brian Deming explains how and why in his lucid, lively, and deeply researched Boston and the Dawn of American Independence. To dodge British taxes, Boston merchants for as long as anyone could remember had routinely smuggled in molasses from French and Spanish possessions in the Caribbean. Boston distillers transformed this sweet cargo into rum, the liquid gold traded around the world. But British authorities cracked down on smuggling and imposed the Sugar Act to help pay for the debts incurred during their wars against France. Then came the hated Stamp Act, a tax on documents, newspapers, and printed materials of all kinds. In courtrooms, in the press, and in the streets, Bostonians rallied in protest against taxation without representation. As anger swept America, Boston was at the center of the storm, which burst forth with the infamous massacre and the Boston Tea Party. By 1775, open warfare erupted at Lexington, Concord, and Bunker Hill. Boston and the Dawn of American Independence ties these scenes together with the people of the time, including John and Sam Adams, John Hancock, and Paul Revere, as well as Thomas Hutchinson, the beleaguered Massachusetts royal governor, and James Otis, the bombastic, unstable early patriot. Readers hear their voices, but also those of many amazing, colorful, and memorable personalities – feisty mob leaders, defiant Tories, terrified townspeople. Deming illuminates this epic story with views of everyday life inside taverns, outside newspa.

Boston Concertgoers Hospitalized After Experiencing Medical Issues During Avicii Event At TD Garden

BOSTON (AP) — Many people who attended an electronic dance music show featuring Swedish disc jockey Avicii at the TD Garden arena on Wednesday showed up intoxicated and several were hospitalized, authorities said.

TD Garden spokeswoman Tricia McCorkle said that at Wednesday night’s Avicii concert “there were a number of transports due to medical issues.” The Emergency Medical Service took 22 people to the hospital, and a dozen more were under evaluation, EMS Deputy Superintendent Mike Bosse told the Boston Herald. Bosse said he contacted the Boston Police Licensing Division, which cited the TD Garden for allowing lots of intoxicated concertgoers to enter.

Avicii spokeswoman Diana Baron said she was waiting for a full report from the venue and promoter.

Two people died over the weekend at a Las Vegas music festival attended by Avicii, one of the biggest names in electronic dance music. Authorities said Monday it will take several weeks to determine what caused the deaths of the Electric Daisy Carnival fans.

Police said nearly 800 people were treated for medical conditions and 25 were hospitalized during the three-night electronic music festival, which organizers said drew about 400,000 people at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Festival organizers told police that 134,000 fans attended Friday, Saturday and Sunday night shows featuring pulsing lights, Ferris wheels, seven stages of music and DJs including Avicii, Diplo, Afrojack and Tiesto.
