Holubar Mountaineering Brand to Be Relaunched in U.S.

Holubar has a long history and yet is virtually unknown in the American market today. But former Woolrich executive Patrick Nebiolo is out to change that.
The mountaineering brand can trace its roots back to 1946 when Alice and Roy Holubar introduced the first lightweight down sleeping bags made from nylon fabric. They later expanded into outdoor apparel and at their peak also operated 10 stores throughout the U.S. The Boulder, Colo.-based brand also made the parka that Robert De Niro wore in “The Deer Hunter.”
After several decades of strong growth in the Sixties and Seventies, the brand was sold to Johnson Wax in 1975 and then to one of its primary competitors, The North Face, in 1981, which stopped producing the line and renamed its stores The North Face.
At the end of the Nineties, an Italian group led by entrepreneur Alberto Raengo purchased Holubar from The North Face and reintroduced the brand to the European market in 2012. Now Fashion Box USA, a new business created by Nebiolo, the former managing director of Woolrich Inc., has acquired the North American license and is relaunching the brand for fall. He serves as group president and chief executive officer, while Raengo is

EXCLUSIVE: Celebrity Stylists Jamie Mizrahi and Simone Harouche Launch Intimates Brand The KiT

Celebrity stylists Jamie Mizrahi and Simone Harouche are masters of polishing off a look. 
Their job descriptions entail making the likes of the Kardashians, Katy Perry, Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba and Miley Cyrus red-carpet-ready. But it’s more than just picking out the right outfit for an event. They need to remember things like nipple covers, adhesive tape, the proper panties and other unmentionables. 
“Basically, if you don’t feel good with what’s happening underneath your clothes, you’re not presenting your best self,” Harouche told WWD. 

The Kit’s inaugural collection is comprised of 18 styles.

Now the duo and longtime friends have decided to make that expertise available to the masses with the launch of their own intimates apparel brand, The KiT. 
“We work with so many different women and different body types and we’ve seen what our clients go through, what our friends go through,” Harouche said. “Women always ask us, ‘What do you use for that? How do you get this look?’ We felt that the transition from styling to undergarments is the foundation of getting dressed.”
In fact, Harouche and Mizrahi, former creative director of Juicy Couture, have been planning out their intimates collection, which launches Sunday at thekitundergarments.com, for the last two years.

J.Lindeberg’s Creative Director Departs Brand

J.Lindeberg has parted ways with its creative director.
Jens Werner, who has been in charge of the design of the Sweden-based men’s label for the past two years, has exited the brand, WWD has learned. The veteran of Adidas and Tory Burch joined J.Lindeberg in fall 2016. For the first year, he was the design director of Sport and Fashion for the label and was elevated in November 2017 to creative director for the entire line. His first collection was for spring 2019.
Werner was brought on board by Stefan Engstrom, a minority owner, who had been chief executive officer at that time. Today, the ceo is Jonas Andersson, who was elevated to that role in December 2018. Andersson, who has been with J.Lindeberg for over seven years, did not respond to requests for comment on Monday about a successor for Werner.
Werner said Andersson is working to reposition the brand, and as a result, their visions did not mesh.
Werner said he had been working to “reshape the brand image and product, drive international awareness, and create new attraction. My brand concept, future archive, has aimed to explain the brand’s history and iconic archive, and my vision for its future. Spread over five

Elie Tahari’s Son, Jeremy, a High School Senior, Launches Streetwear Brand

Jeremy Tahari, the 18-year-old son of Elie Tahari and Rory Tahari, is out to make his mark in the fashion business. He and his two partners, Jack August and Jack Teitelbaum, have launched a brand called Anti, a men’s luxury streetwear brand, but a lot of the fits are unisex.
“Forty percent of our engagement online has been women. It’s kind of a mix,” said Tahari, cofounder and chief executive officer, who’s going into his senior year in high school in London. Teitelbaum, who is chief operating officer, is a sophomore at George Washington University, and August, chief marketing officer and creative director, is a sophomore at NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study. The business is financed by the three partners and their families.
“I know streetwear is the buzzword that everyone wants to hit right now, but for us, it’s not just a trend, it’s something we grew up with. It’s more of a lifestyle,” said Tahari, who grew up with his two friends in New York City.
Describing the philosophy of the brand, Tahari said, “We’re entering a market niche that we don’t feel has been exploited….The whole designer arena — which we feel very fortunate we’ve been able to purchase

L.A. Brand Dôen Opens First Brick-and-Mortar Store

Margaret and Katherine Kleveland, who built their direct-to-consumer, priced-right Los Angeles brand of romantic, vintage-inspired ditsy floral blouses and ruffle-trim dresses through a collective of female tastemakers with social media reach, have opened their first permanent brick-and-mortar retail store at Brentwood Country Mart.
The 900-square-foot space stocks the full range of women’s and children’s clothing, chunky knits, denim and T-shirts, as well as mary janes, ballet flats and accessories designed by the L.A. sisters, who were fashion industry veterans working at the brand Joie before they launched their own label in 2015, with pieces retailing for $ 115 to $ 598.
“We want the customer to be touched on all levels and senses upon entering the store. From the scent we burn and warm lighting to the comfortable rugs and kid corner (with toys for the little ones!), we want it to feel comfortable and easy while shopping,” the Santa Barbara-born designers said in a statement. “Every piece is unique and inspired us in some way. We hope to evoke the feeling when you stumble upon a hidden gem in a small alleyway outside of Paris, from the hand-painted walls to the special wrapping paper.”

Caruso Opens Showroom in New York to Build Brand in U.S.

Caruso has set its sights on the American market.
The Milan-based men’s brand has opened a permanent showroom in Midtown Manhattan and is meeting with specialty and department stores during men’s market this week as it strives to regain a foothold in the U.S.
Spearheading the move is Marco Angeloni, the eldest son of former Brioni chief Umberto Angeloni, who remains an “active shareholder” in the business, according to his son.
Caruso is now majority-owned by Fosun, the company’s Chinese partner since 2013. In 2017, when Fosun purchased the controlling stake from Aplomb Srl, Umberto Angeloni’s holding company with Ruggero Magnoni, Marco Angeloni was elevated to chief executive officer from chief operating officer.
Marco Angeloni, who has also worked at Bain & Co., said his father launched the fashion brand a decade ago and opened flagships in both Milan and New York City. Both those stores have since closed and Umberto Angeloni stepped down as ceo when Fosun became the majority owner. Gone, too, are the brand’s trademark mannequins with handlebar mustaches intended to be reminiscent of its namesake, the singer Enrico Caruso.

Marco Angeloni 

What hasn’t changed, however, is the brand’s quality manufacturing of tailored clothing and upscale sportswear at an affordable price. The collection

Jordan Brand Signs Zion Williamson

Zion Williamson, the first overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft by the New Orleans Pelicans, has signed with Jordan Brand. On Tuesday, Nike revealed the signing, which adds the former Duke University star to the brand’s roster of athletes that includes NBA stars Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, and recent NBA and WNBA signees Jayson Tatum, Rui Hachimura, Asia Durr and Kia Nurse. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of the Jordan Brand family,” Williamson said in a statement. “Since I was a kid, I dreamed of making it to the league and having the type of impact on the game Michael Jordan had and continues to have today. He was one of those special athletes I looked up to, and I really can’t express how happy and excited I am for this journey.”
Williamson was born in North Carolina in 2000, one year before Michael Jordan made his return to the NBA with the Washington Wizards. Many sports analysts expect a great professional career from the young prospect given his short-lived college career that drew loads of attention and endless Instagram and YouTube postings of his acrobatic play.

Men’s Denim Brand Monfrère Expands to U.K.

Los Angeles-based men’s brand Monfrère aims to make its upscale denim the go-to wardrobe piece for day and night, and it’s quickly expanding.
The three-year-old business is now in Selfridges, marking its expansion to the U.K., and has a contract with a Korean distributor, which the company expects will help its presence in the Asian market grow over the next six to 12 months.
Monfrère is sold in 55 doors, including Barneys New York and Bergdorf Goodman, and was cofounded by Sean Rudes — whose father Jeffrey Rudes started J Brand with Susie Crippen — along with Steven Dann. The founder of his namesake men’s shop in New York, Dann is also Sean Rudes’ brother-in-law.
“Sean and I were really discussing denim fits and what we were looking to purchase and wear and both of us had the same requirements,” Dann said of the company’s start.
The two wanted comfortable denim that fit well and could be worn with a T-shirt and sneakers and just as easily transition to a look with a sports jacket. The two scoured the market looking for a brand that fit their requirements, but didn’t turn up anything in line with the description. That was when they said they

Canadian DTC Jewelry Brand Mejuri Opening Door in L.A.

Toronto-based, direct-to-consumer jewelry brand Mejuri is expanding to the West Coast.
The label founded in 2015 by Noura Sakkijha with the goal of delivering everyday high-end jewelry that Millennial women can afford to buy for themselves, will open a showroom/store on Aug. 10 at 8404 Melrose Avenue, adjacent to the trendy Melrose Place shopping stretch that houses Glossier, Marc Jacobs and Isabel Marant.
After Toronto and New York, L.A. marks the third brick-and-mortar outpost for the minimalist jewelry brand with 488,000 Instagram followers, which in four years has quadrupled revenue year-over-year, grown to 120 employees, and inspired waitlists up to 70,000 customers, according to a spokesperson. The L.A. location is the first to open since the brand raised $ 23 million in series B funding in April for retail expansion from venture capital firms including NEA, Felix and Imaginary.
Mejuri operates with a weekly drop model, and its delicate mini hoop and chain threader earrings, diamond-line necklaces, zodiac signet rings and dainty chain bracelets run from $ 29 to $ 2,000. The brand also sells engagement rings.
“California has always been an important market for Mejuri and there’s nothing more valuable to us than meeting our community where they are,” Sakkijha said of the new opening. “The

Jaclyn Hill’s Makeup Brand Drama: Everything You Need to Know

The summer of influencer drama continues.
As the feud between beauty influencers James Charles and Tati Westbrook settles, the drama is turning to fellow influencer Jaclyn Hill, whose highly anticipated makeup line has launched with criticism surrounding its sanitation and product quality.
Read More: The Biggest Influencer News of 2018
After numerous customer complaints and attacks by other influencers, Hill has deleted her social media accounts and the brand’s web site has temporarily been taken down after promising full refunds to all customers.
From all the influencers involved to allegations of contamination, here is everything you need to know about the drama surrounding Hill and her Jaclyn Cosmetics brand.
Who is Jaclyn Hill?
Hill is billed as one of the biggest beauty influencers, starting her YouTube channel nearly eight years ago and amassing roughly 6 million subscribers. She is credited with reviving Becca Cosmetics after partnering with the brand in 2015 to collaborate on the brand’s Champagne Pop highlighter — which sold out of its 25,000 units in 20 minutes — and later with a full collection in 2017. Her second collaboration with the brand earned more than $ 3.5 million in sales during its first day. Hill had also collaborated with Morphe Cosmetics for a 35-pan

Hollywood Stylist Anita Patrickson’s Amanu Sandal Brand Sets Hotel Partnership

Hollywood stylist Anita Patrickson has aligned with Singita luxury lodges to bring her made-to-order Amanu sandals to resorts in South Africa. It’s the first move into the hospitality sector for the brand, and a full circle moment for Patrickson, who originally hails from Capetown.
She parlayed her work as a fashion stylist for Julianne Hough, Portia de Rossi and others into a custom shoe business that launched last year in L.A., inspired both by traditional sandals made using tire rubber in Africa, and the tradition of resort sandal making on the island of Capri.
Now she’s bringing the eco-conscious, high-touch experience  customers get in her West Hollywood flagship to guests at Singita. In June, Patrickson traveled to South Africa with one of the U.S. makers to train the staff at Singita Ebony Lodge and Lemombo Lodge to cobble the shoes, priced $ 160 to $ 275, from an array of leathers, with pony hair and feather trim, in under an hour.

“My parents were both born in Kenya, and I thought this was a cool way to be able to take this craft back and teach somebody a skillset—and a way to be able to go home more,” Patrickson laughed, adding of her brand

Jordan Brand Taps Jayson Tatum as Brand Ambassador

SLAM DUNK: Leveraging the buzz from Paris Fashion Week Men’s, Jordan Brand on Friday announced the addition of Jayson Tatum and Rui Hachimura to its roster of basketball ambassadors.
With rows of white balls on sticks greeting visitors, the event took place in a hôtel particulier in the city’s 5th arrondissement dubbed the House of Jumpman, featuring a makeshift faux basketball court in the courtyard.
“I’ve been wearing Jordans since before I could walk…just getting [Michael Jordan’s] approval to come to the brand was really big for me because he’s the greatest of all time,” Tatum told WWD.
The St. Louis native, who was selected third overall in the 2017 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics, joins a family of more than 50 athlete ambassadors linked to the Nike Inc.-owned brand across multiple sporting disciplines, including Maya Moore, Kemba Walker and Blake Griffin, who were also present at the event.
The slickly groomed and heavily inked Tatum, who sported a pair of neon yellow “Flyknit 4s” by the brand, hinted at his own design aspirations. “Coming over to Jordan, there’s a lot of creativity. I definitely want to tap into that and tell my own stories,” he said.

Lee Spielman Keeps Babylon Close to Its Skateboarding Roots as the Brand Grows

LOS ANGELES — “This kid skates like he’s being chased,” Babylon’s Lee Spielman said, looking at the video playing on his iPhone.
Spielman, who started the brand Babylon with Garrett Stevenson in 2015, is just barely getting over jet lag from back-to-back pop-ups in Osaka, Japan, and Tokyo that included now sold-out collaborations with Japanese brands Wasted Youth, Bounty Hunter, Neighborhood, ReadymMade and the artist Kosuke Kawamura.
The shops were aimed at building buzz around the release of Babylon’s spring collection, which continues to expand and diversify with each season. It’s a glimpse into how the overall brand is maturing, while staying true to its core skater. Spring was accompanied with a video that went viral and won a nod from Virgil Abloh and many others for its cinematic quality. Some 20 skaters, artists and DJs, all friends of the brand, are featured in the 58-second clip that slowly pans across each person staged on a dirt path in East Los Angeles before what appears to be a burning palm tree is revealed in the final frames.
“We’re just trying to keep elevating what we can do. For us, that was a full production. It was the first time we had a big

Former Harper’s Bazaar Australia EIC Kellie Hush to Launch Accessories Brand

SYDNEY — After nearly a quarter of a century covering luxury goods through various roles at Australian fashion magazines, Australian editor Kellie Hush is taking aim at the fast-fashion arena via her own accessibly priced accessories line.
On May 24, nine months after the former Harper’s Bazaar Australia editor in chief revealed she was quitting after six years to start her own business, Hush will launch a line of handbags and jewelry called The Way via an e-commerce site, with plans to open five freestanding 800- to 1,100-square-foot brick-and-mortar stores in the Sydney region by the end of the year and 50 stores across Australia within five years.
The store concept has been created by Australian interior designer Rebecca Vulic, a former senior director of global store design for Kate Spade New York.

The launch campaign for Kellie Hush’s new accessories line The Way.

Theway.com.au will launch with 800 stockkeeping units. Handbags, which account for 60 percent of the brand’s offer and are all made from fabric or polyurethane, range from 40 to 120 Australian dollars, or $ 28 to $ 84 at current exchange, while jewelry ranges from 15 to 50 Australian dollars, or $ 10 to $ 35.

Kendall Jenner Sets Wheels in Motion for Her Own Beauty Brand

Kendall Jenner is the latest of the Kardashian-Jenner family to launch her own brand.
The model is following in her famous sisters’ footsteps and venturing into the beauty world. According to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Jenner filed for a trademark on May 2 for “Kendall” and “Kendall Jenner.”
Both trademarks are filed for beauty products across skin, hair, makeup and fragrance, including eau de parfum, hair-care preparations, bath and shower gels, body creams, skin cleansers, beauty masks, deodorant, lip gloss, nail polish and nail-care preparations, among others.
This marks Jenner’s first solo business venture. The model also co-runs the contemporary fashion label Kendall + Kylie with sister Kylie Jenner. She is also the face of and co-created oral-care brand Moon, which she holds a stake in, according to industry sources.
The Kardashian-Jenner family is already a formidable force in the beauty world. Sisters Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner both run successful beauty brands — KKW Beauty and Kylie Cosmetics, respectively — and have grown their brands to include multiple beauty product categories and have embarked on distribution partnerships with Ulta Beauty. The two sisters are also teaming for a fragrance collaboration.
While this is Kendall Jenner’s first solo brand, she has experience in

EXCLUSIVE: Randa Acquires Haggar Brand

Randa Accessories is finally making its long-desired jump into the apparel end of the business.
On Tuesday, the New York-based company revealed that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire 100 percent of Haggar Clothing Co. Terms were not disclosed, but the transaction is expected to close on May 31. The acquisition also includes the Tribal women’s brand.
Haggar is believed to have sales of around $ 500 million and Randa revenues of about $ 700 million, so the combined company would have sales of more than $ 1 billion.
Haggar’s headquarters will remain in Dallas and the current management team, headed by chief executive officer Michael Stitt, will remain intact.
A little over a year ago, Randa was locked in a battle with George Feldenkreis to acquire Perry Ellis International. Ultimately, Feldenkreis prevailed but Randa’s management was determined to regroup and find another brand that would allow it to expand beyond accessories, where it dominates the market.
That opportunity arose with Haggar, a privately held, 93-year-old, Dallas-based brand whose founding family sold the business in 2005 to private equity firm Perseus LLC and Taiwan-based Pou Chen, the world’s largest footwear manufacturer, which has been the sole owner for the past several years.
Stitt said Pou Chen had informed him around six months ago that

Kathy Ireland on Building a Multibillion Brand Under the Radar

TUCSON, Ariz. — Kathy Ireland pivoted from fashion model to selling socks in a move that earned criticism from some, but she’s having the last laugh as sole owner of a $ 2 billion business.
The chair, chief executive officer and chief designer of Kathy Ireland Worldwide capped the University of Arizona’s Terry J. Lundgren Center for Retailing’s annual conference Friday with a talk on how she grew her company into the 26-year-old behemoth that includes apparel, accessories, home, pet products and FinTech. There’s also interest in entertainment. But it all started with a commodity product she was asked to help sell.
“I was an aging, pregnant model at my kitchen table and, to tell you the truth, I was offered the opportunity to model this pair of socks,” Ireland said of the business’ start. “We didn’t even know if they were going to use my face but it was a job and it was a time when not a lot of job offers were coming my way…so we started with a pair of socks. Some said it was counterintuitive. Some said it was stupid.…We wanted to build a real brand. Something that was not dependent on any little smidgen of celebrity I might

London-Based Brand Dai to Open New York City Pop-up With Performances

STAGING A STORE: Dai founder Joanna Dai returns to New York this weekend to open a pop-up store in the Bowery that will be as much about special events as will it be about clothes.
She initially relocated to London for her job at J.P. Morgan in 2013, and wound up launching her own direct-to-consumer company in July 2017. Geared for “urban, modern career women,” the location of this week’s pop-up made sense since Dai came from New York and still has part of her network here. A number of special events are planned during the April 2 to 7 run at 208 Bowery. A two-hour styling event with Dai, a post-work meditation with Aiko Neligan, destress yoga with Magi Pierce and styling with Bloomberg’s global head of on-air wardrobe Sara DiMedioare among them.
There are also plans to introduce the Performances Spaces concept in London perhaps for a monthlong store in Soho or Covent Garden, before trying it out a second time in New York. Dai declined to reveal her self-funded company’s annual sales. Aware of the frustrations working women face for wardrobe choices, she set out to try and do something about it. After exiting a career in finance, she enrolled

Bloomingdale’s Introducing Dylan Gray Men’s Brand for Spring

Bloomingdale’s is getting back into the men’s private brand business.
A decade after the retailer retired its in-house collections brands, Joseph & Lyman and Metropolitan View, in favor of a classifications strategy, it is launching a bridge collection for spring under the name Dylan Gray.
The line is described as “a modern, sophisticated update on classic men’s sportswear that fuses the elegance of European luxury with the ease of American sportswear.”
The 38-piece collection of soft tailored clothing, transitional outerwear, knits and trousers is manufactured predominantly in Europe. It is designed to be a hybrid of tailored and sportswear.
“We felt there was a white space in the European transitional classic zone in our stores,” said Dan Leppo, executive vice president and general merchandise manager of men’s and home for Bloomingdale’s. “We think there’s an opportunity with all that’s happening in direct-to-consumer today to offer great value and great fashion that moves beyond commodity.”
Leppo said Dylan Gray is “made with the modern man in mind, offering solutions for work or play for today’s smart casual lifestyle, without sacrificing style. It’s about fusing classic sportswear with Old World sophistication at a compelling price point.”
Prices will range from $ 98 to $ 698 and will include marled bird’s-eye polos,

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Names Lindsey Vonn Brand Ambassador

Now that she’s hung up her skis, Lindsey Vonn is turning her attention to fashion.
The celebrated skier, who is retiring from competitive racing, has become the first global ambassador for Project Rock, a line developed by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in partnership with Under Armour. Vonn is sponsored by Under Armour. 
“What I find so inspiring about Dwayne is that he always gives 110 percent in everything that he does,” Vonn said. “He basically stands for 100 percent authenticity and 100 percent effort.” 
In a video posted on the Under Armour site on Tuesday, Vonn is pictured in the gym and talking about exercise with Johnson to get the message out about the collection, which is targeted at all athletes regardless of their age, gender, race, creed, sexuality or skill level, according to the brand.
She said the Project Rock collection “doesn’t necessary stand for everything in the gym. It stands for a lifestyle and how you approach life.”
Johnson broke the news on his Instagram account on Tuesday morning, calling Vonn: “A woman who I’ve known, admired and respected over the years. ‬‪The hardest worker in the room. ‬‪The best worker in the room.”
As part of the deal, Vonn and Johnson will be

Steve Aoki Collaborates With Travel Accessories Brand Fūl

For the guy on the go, travel and gear accessories brand Fūl has unveiled a range of accessories — a collaboration with Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Steve Aoki called the “Fūl-Aoki” collection.
Fūl, originally founded by Justin Timberlake in 2004 and now owned by Concept One Accessories, has carved out a space in the travel category with backpacks, belt bags and travel gear inspired by the nomadic life of a musician but curated for anyone with an active lifestyle.
“Steve and I had been talking about doing something together for Fūl over the past couple of years,” said Sam Hafif, chief executive officer of the accessories brand. “Travel is such a big part of his life. No one I know travels as extensively as he does, so his vision for the product and how it should function comes from a unique personal experience.”

The line takes a cue from the streetwear scene and Aoki’s personal style, and splits into two distinct directions.

Kourtney Kardashian Is Launching a Brand Called Poosh

Kourtney Kardashian is following in her sisters’ footsteps by launching her own brand, called Poosh.
The reality TV star took to her Instagram today to tease the launch of the brand. Kardashian posted a picture of herself lounging — naked — in a bathroom while drinking a cup of tea surrounded by shelves of beauty products.

A post shared by Kourtney Kardashian (@kourtneykardash) on Mar 4, 2019 at 12:18pm PST

Kardashian tagged Poosh’s own Instagram in the post, which shows a link to the brand’s web site offering a sign-up list for the yet-to-be launched brand. The brand name is a nickname Kardashian uses to refer to her six-year-old daughter, Penelope Disick.
While the initial teaser picture shows Kardashian in a bathroom, it’s unclear if Poosh is a beauty or lifestyle brand. But many have speculated that the line will be beauty-focused given Kardashian’s advocacy of increasing FDA regulations in the beauty industry.

Dunhill to Spotlight New Brand Positioning in U.S.

The Alfred Dunhill brand can trace its roots all the way back to 1893 but its presence in the U.S. market over the years has been spotty at best.
In the Fifties, the London-based brand operated major stores on Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles and Rockefeller Center in New York and counted celebrities such as Frank Sinatra as fans.
But it slowly lost its grip on the market as management changed, stores closed and the brand cycled through a number of designers including Richard James, Nick Ashley, John Ray and Kim Jones.
Enter Andrew Maag, a former Burberry executive who joined the brand at the end of 2017 and promptly set out to “right size” the business and redirect its focus back to its core business. “We were really missing the mark in the luxury space,” he said. “But we’re just now experiencing a turnaround.”
That has been helped in large part by the positive reaction to the modern tailoring created by the company’s new creative director, Mark Weston.
At the same time, Maag said that since joining the company, one of his major focuses has been updating the fleet of stores. “They desperately needed to be brought up to relevant standards,” he said.

Randa Invests in Stantt Men’s Brand

Randa has signed on as the lead investor in Stantt, a made-to-measure men’s wear brand. Randa was joined by New England Development, CompanyFirst, Sapna Shah of Red Giraffe Advisors, and entrepreneur John DeWees. The amount of the Series A financing was not disclosed but is said to have been a multi-million dollar investment.
The New York-based Stantt was cofounded in 2013 by Matt Hornbuckle and Kirk Keel and uses proprietary DataFit Technology, which is comprised of 99 sizes and an algorithm that requires only three measurements to create a custom fit. The brand offers wovens, knits and performance cloth in a variety of regular and big and tall sizes. All garments are made-to-order and delivered in seven days.
The financing round was led by Randa Digital Labs and will be used by Stantt to “increase marketing partnerships and support to more than 300 retail partners, enhance brand touch-points across all channels, drive expansion into new product categories and enable the hiring of key personnel,” the company said.
Heath Golden, president of Randa Digital Labs, said his company “appreciated the value of Stantt’s business model from the beginning. We are confident that Matt and Kirk will leverage these funds to take the company to the next

STREET SIGNS: How WeSC Transitioned From Mall Brand to Contemporary Streetwear Line

When Joseph Janus joined WeSC seven years ago as chief executive officer of the American business, the Swedish streetwear brand, which is named We Are Superlative Conspiracy, was being produced and distributed by its U.S. licensee Oved Apparel Group. Like most streetwear and skate lines at the time, the brand was focused on mass distribution in retailers such as Tillys, Zumiez and PacSun.
But Janus, who has previously worked for brands including Calvin Klein, Guess and JNCO, sensed a shift coming in the market and knew he would have to slowly make WeSC more premium.
“I wanted to bridge the gap between traditional streetwear and luxury,” said Janus. “How do we get into better department stores and grow up with our consumer who is starting to mix luxury items into their wardrobe?”
In 2013 the brand bought back its U.S. license and created an independent American subsidiary and Janus was charged with growing business in the U.S. Over the course of the last few years, he’s made small shifts to get the company, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, where it is today.
Step one was slowly increasing the price points and changing the distribution from mall stores to better department stores. Janus

Tomorrow Consulting Creates Japanese Fashion Brand Incubator

TOMORROW, TODAY: Fashion accelerator Tomorrow Consulting is launching an incubator to grow high-potential Japanese fashion brands worldwide. It was created with the Japan External Trade Organization and Japanese influencer Daisuke Gemma, and has chosen as its first brand Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi.
“This project comes from a big need of the Japanese market, to help and support talented young designers in new ways, to help the development of their brands,” Luca Corsetti, Tomorrow Consulting’s managing partner, told WWD. “We curated a selection of brands and, for sure, Poggy was the very first one.”
Corsetti said Japanese brand executives will be aided to understand the needs of international markets, including communications and operations. “We decided to support from end to end — from the strategy up to the execution of the product,” he explained.
Corsetti called Kogi, United Arrows & Sons creative director who is known widely as “Poggy the Man,” among the most talented people in Japanese fashion. “Poggy has one of the most brilliant visions about the market at large,” he said.
Kogi’s brand includes collaborations with rising Japanese designers, each one focused on a particular product category. The collection on display currently in Tomorrow’s Right Bank showroom includes shirts made of repurposed bananas

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.

Men’s Wear Brand Fisher + Baker Targets Women for Minneapolis Event

Fisher + Baker is a men’s brand, but that didn’t stop the company from targeting women for an event at its Minneapolis headquarters earlier this month.
More than 80 women showed up at the Fisher + Baker studio for a Sip and Shop event, its first initiative targeted to females.
The event also served as a fund-raiser for Minnesota Wild’s Jason Zucker’s #Give16 Campaign, which was created by Zucker and his wife, Carly, to build the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital.
Fisher + Baker donated $ 2,500 to the campaign from the event.
“Women are powerful consumers and are influential in the brand and style decisions of the men in their lives,” said Mike Arbeiter, Fisher + Baker’s chief executive officer and president. “By targeting female consumers as part of our brand engagement strategy, we are building awareness with a community that has a strong influence on men’s wardrobes.”
At the event, the women browsed through the brand’s classic styles of outerwear, sweaters and shirts while enjoying wine and cheese. Among the most popular items was the Lexington Vest, which retails for $ 298.
Arbeiter said the Sip and Shop event “was intended as a pilot concept that if

‘Standard of the West,’ Black Bear Brand Leather

A BEAR FOR WEAR: Resurgence of slow fashion and putting hands to work, and resting on nearly 100 years of heritage, Black Manufacturing is uniting its “union of makers” with its newest leather-jacket collaboration, colluding in the Pacific Northwest where the “outdoors and industrial collide.”
Fixed on quality and made-to-order utility, Black Bear Brand’s product selection includes leather jackets, heavyweight shirts of wool and tweed weave, knit accessories and collaborations such as that of the latest Black Bear Brand x Langlitz Leathers featuring Horween Leather Co. horsehide, tanned specially for the collaboration.
Since 1914, when George G. Black built the namesake manufacturing center to foster the growth of the label, the emphasis has been on providing product with purpose. And this “union of makers” is tethered to the Black family’s founding mission to dissolve competing sweatshop conditions and place emphasis on worker welfare and emotional resonance.
WWD spoke with Josh Sirlin, creative director, curator and principal at Black Manufacturing, the overseer of Black Bear Brand and its “union of makers,” which is essentially “sharing what’s behind the product” and “participating in the creating,” as Sirlin stated.
Softening production timelines, each leather jacket begins with a “personal consultation with each customer during the ordering process” to perfect sizing

Mother-Daughter Brand MaisonCléo Debuts Capsule With Opening Ceremony

FAMILY AFFAIR — MaisonCléo, the French ready-to-wear brand born on Instagram, is teaming with Opening Ceremony for a capsule collection.
The brand, founded by Marie Dewet and her mother Nathalie in September 2016, has designed three pieces — a cotton shirt, a silk top and a silk skirt — which will be sold exclusively on the Opening Ceremony web site.
The capsule is limited in numbers: only 40 pieces will be available on the web site, both due to fabric limitation — the brand uses leftover and surplus fabrics from established fashion houses — and to its small team.
Based between Lille and Calais, in the north of France, MaisonCléo is entirely made by Nathalie (also known as “Cléo” to her friends because of the Cleopatra-style eyeliner she used to sport when she was younger) who has been a seamstress for over 30 years.
“A lot of retailers have approached us but the stock they ask for is always too high,” said Dewet. “Opening Ceremony spotted us on Instagram, and we managed to agree on a collection of 40 pieces, which my mother spent two months creating.”

MILAN — Aldo Maria Camillo will unveil the first collection of his namesake label at Pitti Uomo, running in Florence Jan. 8 to 11.
The designer was selected by the international men’s wear trade show at its Pitti Italics Special Event.
“Aldo Maria Camillo works exclusively and with great focus on men’s fashion studying the masculine silhouette, with the aim of giving a new imprint and freshness to men’s wear. His cultural references belong to an intimately classical background, supported by solid stylistic training and an acute sensitivity to current worldwide events — which goes beyond fashion. He has talent, imagination, and a sense of material,” said Pitti Immagine director of communications and events Lapo Cianchi. “The new project of Aldo Maria is very personal and immediately engaged us, because we believe that in men’s wear it is essential to return to the standards of elegance nonetheless, re-read and renewed in a modern key. We want to join him in this adventure — the launching of his self-named brand — which now more than ever before requires courage and determination.”

The brand’s signature women’s “Puffa” style jacket was reinterpreted in two exclusive colorways: red and blue. The cropped jacket, retailing at $ 615, boasts an exaggerated collar and a tie detail.
Additional styles and dedicated colorways will be added to the capsule early next year, strengthening the tie-up with the U.S. department store.

“We want to shift the customers’ perspective on down jackets and we are really focused on trying to evolve the silhouettes. After a few seasons of oversized shapes, we’re gently shifting toward more refined styles, without giving up our rock soul,” said founder and ceo Andrea Pilato Barrara.
The brand delivers fall duvet coats for women featuring oversized proportions and in a number of bright colors informed by the Nineties aesthetic. Established in 2008 as a sportswear label, Bacon will launch its first summer season in 2020 with a selection of windbreakers. Starting with the current fall season, it also introduced two men’s

Australian Cult Brand Spell & The Gypsy Collective Lands in U.S.

Australian fashion labels, many of which are in the spotlight as Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, tours the antipodes, have long been popular in Southern California, where the climate and beach culture mirror the land of Oz.
Spell & The Gypsy Collective, the 10-year-old contemporary brand started by sisters Isabella Pennefather and Elizabeth Abegg, opened its first stand-alone retail space in the U.S., a pop-up at 1108 Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, Calif. Open through Nov. 25, the shop has attracted cult lovers of the brand, some of whom traveled from as far away as Florida and Canada just to shop.

“Because we’re slow fashion, we don’t make too many pieces so they tend to sell out very quickly,” said Pennefather, who started out in 2008 making jewelry that she sold at the open-air market in Byron Bay, Australia. When her sister, Lizzy, came on board a few years later, they expanded into clothing and e-commerce, and the business grew from there.
“I remember when we had a clunky web site and early bloggers such as Oracle Fox [whose given name is Amanda Shadforth] bought our things at the

‘Made in France’ Brand Rue Begand Opens First Store

PARIS — One is in Troyes, a city in eastern France with a deep-rooted textile history. The other is located in the Haut Marais, a trendy shopping district in the center of Paris.
Rue Begand — the men’s fashion brand — has opened its first brick-and-mortar store on the Rue Charlot, after launching wholesale in January at L’Exception in France and United Arrows in Japan.
Doubling as the label’s headquarters, the shop sports a photo studio in its basement where the fall 2018 and spring 2019 collections were shot for the Rue Begand e-shop, set to launch in a couple of weeks.
Named after a street in Troyes that used to house a number of clothing workshops, the brand is a celebration of local savoir faire.
“Eighty percent of our clothes are made in Troyes,” said Rue Begand’s founder Samuel Granata, adding that the remaining part is manufactured in a nearby town, with a few of the more voluminous pieces being made in Tunisia.
Rue Begand works with L’Atelier d’Ariane, a historical clothing manufacturer based in Troyes run by Granata’s mother Véronique. “My family has had the atelier for over 20 years,” said the 25-year-old founder, who runs the brand with his brother Arthur. “I spent most of

Macko Joins Camp Hero Accessories Brand

Michael Macko has become a partner in Camp Hero, an accessories brand that produces unisex hand-beaded items such as bracelets, cuffs and hatbands. Macko, whose career has included stints at Saks Fifth Avenue, Details and MR Magazine, is helping the brand relaunch to focus exclusively on e-commerce and seeks outside investors to help it grow.
Camp Hero was founded in 2014 by childhood friends Allie Carroll and Dan Schneier who built a business that had over 100 wholesale accounts including Orvis, J. Crew and Murray’s Toggery. However, the strategy will now change.

“As we enter 2019, there will be a real emphasis on e-commerce and developing new business verticals,” said Carroll.
Schneier added that it was Macko who first discovered the brand and added it to the MRket show in 2014. “He’s been a mentor from day one, and his incredible creative perspective and business acumen will help bring Camp Hero to the next level,” he said.
Macko’s first order of business will be to oversee a web site redesign and revamp of the product offering to increase the assortment and the frequency of its drops, which will include limited-edition items such as the reissue of the Dia de los Muertos belt  as well

Goat Enlists Los Angeles Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma to Help Build Brand Buzz

EXPRESS YOURSELF: Online sneaker reselling marketplace Goat has inked a deal to have Kyle Kuzma serve as the face of its brand.
The Los Angeles Lakers player, as part of the deal, will don various sneakers sourced from Goat throughout the season during and outside of games. The deal reflects a seizing of the NBA’s reversed course on a rule that had dictated what sneaker colors players could wear on the court. The rule change now allows for any color footwear during games.
For Goat, Kuzma marks the first time the company is spending to have an ambassador for the brand and follows a flurry of activity this year.
Goat has grown through its digital marketplace that lets people buy and sell sneakers authenticated by Goat.
In February, the company, which launched in 2015, merged with Flight Club, a sneaker consignment retailer with doors in Los Angeles and New York, effectively combining the worlds of physical retail and online for sneaker reselling. It also pulled in $ 60 million in additional funding this year, bringing its total capital raised to date to $ 97.6 million.
In the summer, the company said it hired Lizzie Francis as chief operating officer, the first for Goat. The executive joined the

Giovanni Morelli Joins Valentino, Isabelle Harvie-Watt Exits Brand

IN AND OUT: Former Stuart Weitzman creative director Giovanni Morelli has joined Valentino as accessories design director, WWD has learned. He reports to creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli. Morelli, who left the Tapestry Inc.-owned brand in May after one year, is a former leather goods designer for Loewe, Marc Jacobs and Chloé.
Morelli’s exit followed allegations of sexual harassment filed by Stuart Weitzman’s vice president Thomas Gibb, but Tapestry itself has since taken action against Gibb, terminating him and filing its own lawsuit against the executive, alleging breach of contract, duty of loyalty and diversion of corporate opportunities.
At the same time, Valentino’s chief marketing officer Isabelle Harvie-Watt has exited the company after only six months. This was a new role at the company and it is understood it is now vacant.
Born and raised in London, Harvie-Watt has been working in Italy for more than 25 years. Before Valentino, she was a managing partner and ceo of the Spring Group — Spring Studios and Spring Place — in Milan, tasked with expanding and managing the group’s footprint in Italy. Prior to this, Harvie-Watt spent five years as ceo and country manager of Havas Media Group in Italy. While at Havas, she also founded and launched Luxhub, a global strategic consulting division for the

Frederic de Narp Talks Growth, Brand Strategy in Tokyo

TOKYO — Bally launched its latest artist collaboration at its flagship in Ginza here on Wednesday, unveiling a series of limited-edition products while hosting the opening of an exhibition by London-based street artist Shok-1. The project is the second in a series of artist collaborations curated by music producer Kasseem Dean, who goes by the name Swizz Beatz.
Frédéric de Narp, chief executive officer of the Swiss brand, began his career in Japan and still retains a high level of admiration for the country and its culture. He said that his decision to have a creative collective — rather than a single creative director — head Bally’s design activities was inspired by the country he once called home.
“This creative collective mindset, for me, was born in Japan. This is what I wanted to learn from the Japanese culture, what belongs to the Japanese culture, and what the Japanese are the best at,” he said. “This sort of respect and working together as a group, it’s a cliché, but it is true. And it’s not a fact of a one-woman show or a one-man show. It’s a fact of a group, and I believe in this, especially for a brand that has

Cofounder Jack Miner Exits Hecho Brand

Hecho, a men’s casualwear brand inspired by and made in Mexico City, has lost its cofounder, designer and chief proponent.
Jack Miner, who created the label in 2014, has exited the brand “to pursue new professional opportunities,” the company said. Daniela Xacur, Miner’s business partner and chief executive officer, will continue her “active role in the company,” and will work with its new creative director, Brenda Díaz de la Vega.
Díaz de la Vega was the editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar Mexico and Latin America and also worked in communications for Chanel.
Reached through his personal e-mail, Miner said he and Xacur “faced irreconcilable differences with regard to the future of Hecho at the end of August. Ultimately, as the minority shareholder to her majority stake, I made the decision to move on from the company.”
Xacur could not be reached for comment on the future of the label. However, its web site was not operating on Tuesday.
Hecho, which is carried at Barneys New York, Matchesfashion.com and other high-end retailers, centers around swimwear and beach-related sportswear.

Will a Larger Adidas Yeezy Boost Release Hurt the Brand?

Kanye West always wanted this.
Not having royalties and not being able to produce more sneakers were the main reasons he left Nike. And upon signing his deal with Adidas, which started in 2013, he made it clear that he wanted more people to have access to his sneakers. Today he’s making good on that promise with the release of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 in an all-white colorway that retails for $ 220. Customers will only be able to purchase the sneakers directly through adidas.com and the Yeezy Supply web site. They are reportedly releasing 1 million pairs of shoes.
West’s influence, along with scarcity, is what has bolstered the Yeezy footwear line. But what happens when a Yeezy Boost style becomes even more ubiquitous? Will it have the same trajectory as the Jordan brand, which lost market share and cache due to overproduction. WWD spoke with people in the sneaker industry to see if the release will hurt or help the brand.

Icecream Relaunches as Luxury Brand

Icecream, which was founded by Pharrell Williams and Tomoaki Nagao, better known as Nigo, in 2005, the same year they started Billionaire Boys Club, is back but with a sleeker, more elevated aesthetic.
Williams, who still owns the brand, and his team took into account how luxury and streetwear are commingling and brought on Matthew Chevallard, the founder of Del Toro, to design the collection, which will be released as mini capsules throughout the year. The Icecream sneakers were originally produced by Reebok.
“We wanted to pay homage to what Pharrell and Nigo created but bring it up to date,” said Chevallard. “We think this can sit alongside brands like Off White, Gucci and Palm Angels. We are also seeing consumers buying more luxury tchotchkes and collector’s items so that will be included in the line.”

Icecream 

First up is a capsule that harkens back to Icecream’s diamond and dollars print. The assortment includes a made-in-Italy sneaker with leather laces, a leather-wrapped sole and a gel bottom, a velour slip-on sneaker, suede slides and a trucker hat. The line retails from $ 195 for the slides to R$ 350 for the sneakers. The footwear will be sold in clear, acrylic boxes covered with the Icecream logo.

OVS, Massimo Piombo Unveil New Brand

Italian men’s wear designer Massimo Piombo has a couple of new jobs to add to its résumé.
On Thursday, Italian retailer OVS and the designer launched the new Piombo brand, cutting the ribbon of the label’s first freestanding store here. OVS and Piombo hold a 70 percent and 30 percent stake in the company, respectively.
In addition, the designer, who was named OVS men’s artistic director in March, will expand his role. Stefano Beraldo, OVS chief executive officer, announced that Piombo will take on the creative director post overseeing all the retailer’s lines, which include women’s wear and kid’s wear — a particularly successful segment for OVS according to Beraldo — along with men’s wear.
The fashion direction of the OVS women’s ready-to-wear collections will continue to be led by Caterina Salvador, under Piombo’s guidance.
The first store for the new Piombo brand, which is positioned in the contemporary, affordable luxury segment, is located in the city’s artsy Brera district. The 1,291-square-foot unit will be open for business Sept. 14, along with a second banner in Treviso, in Italy’s Veneto region.

H&M Stages See-Now-Buy-Now Fashion Show in Shanghai in Time for Tmall Super Brand Day

H&M’S SUPER DAY: For the first time, H&M dove into Super Brand Day Wednesday on Tmall, one of the leading e-commerce platforms.
To try to maximize its efforts, H&M China staged a see-now-buy-now H&M Studio A/W 2018 fashion show in Shanghai with some H&M-clad, well-known guests: Model Ju Xiaowen, pop idol Wang Ziyi, actress Rayza and musician and actress Summer. The garments worn by the celebrities sold out within minutes, according to H&M. In total, about 1,000 members of the media, influencers and special guests joined executives and staffers from H&M and Tmall for the runway show. The event was also live-streamed on Tmall. A hot-pink pussy bow blouse, a pink-and-red pleated skirt, a shimmery black cocktail dress, light-blue men’s suit and a gray crewneck sweater imprinted with a large “H” on the front were some of the runway styles.
Tmall’s base of shoppers helps to bolster H&M China’s 400-plus stores, as well as its e-commerce site. The company launched its Tmall store in March and Wednesday’s tie-in was the latest evolution of the alliance. Through its #YourDayYourWay campaign, Chinese shoppers were offered special promotions via the H&M Tmall store.

Eyewear Brand Felix Gray Gives Back to Teachers

BACK TO SCHOOL: Eyewear brand Felix Gray has a new, limited-edition collection called “Salute our Teachers” — essentially its fall 2018 color drop — that introduces three colors for its Manatee, Jemson and Roebling frames.
The selection is part of the brand’s spotlight of teachers as the school season starts this fall. And recognizing that many teachers pay for school supplies out of their own pockets, Felix Gray will donate 10 percent of all sales from the collection to teachers’ classrooms through DonorsChoose.org. The organization is a nonprofit that supports classrooms around the country.
Felix Gray was cofounded by David Roger, who serves as the company’s chief executive officer. The eyewear brand is known for specializing in blue-light blocking through its own proprietary lenses. The frames are made from Italian acetate. As of earlier this year, the glasses are available in nonprescription, prescription and reading lenses. It also offers a sunglasses option.

Fine Jewelry Options Now Available for Marilyn Monroe Brand

DIAMONDS, ANYONE?: In her role as Lorelei Lee in the 1953 film “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” Marilyn Monroe performed “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” Now Marilyn aficionados can “get the look” from the M.Monroe Collection, a fine jewelry line priced between $ 150 for a simple sterling silver chain to $ 350,000 for the statement piece, the Stellar Cosmos Necklace, in 18-karat rose gold featuring 11 white diamonds in varying sizes.
Many items in the collection include a signature M hangtag that includes a diamond accent mark, representing the Monroe mole on the left side of her face.
The line is available at the M.Monroe web site. Authentic Brands Group, the brand management firm that owns the intellectual property assets for the Marilyn Monroe brand, partnered with Adama Partners for the line. Adama, a New York-based venture firm focusing on the global diamond, gemstone and jewelry industries, last year combined forces with Bain Capital Private Equity and Bow Street to take online jeweler Blue Nile private.

Robert Stock to Create New Brand

Robert Stock is ready to do it again.
The founder and former chairman of Robert Graham has transitioned out of that role and will launch another brand next month.
Called simply Robert, the upscale men’s lifestyle brand will be online only and utilize a club concept where customers will pay a membership fee to join Robert’s Club and gain access to the woven shirts, knitwear, sport coats and outerwear.
Stock’s partner in the new venture is Thomas Main, former head of design at Robert Graham, and a 30-year colleague of the designer.
“This is what keeps me going,” Stock told WWD. He said that since the Robert Graham company was acquired by Tengram Capital Partners five years ago and subsequently went public, there have been a series of “ups and downs.” Stock has been serving as a brand ambassador and consultant and has not been involved in the day-to-day operation of the brand.
However, he said the parting was amicable and he remains “on very friendly terms” with the Robert Graham team. “My name is on the label and I’m still a stockholder and have a lot of feelings for the company. So if the situation calls for it, and they need me, I’m always available.”

Selfridges Opens Eyewear Pop-up With Lily Cole’s Brand, Wires

THROWING SHADE: Selfridges is teaming with model and social entrepreneur Lily Cole to unveil a new collection from Wires, an eyewear brand cofounded by Cole and Yair Neuman.
The pop-up will run until July 15 in Selfridges’ personalization area on the lower ground floor.
For the second collection, Neuman took a modular approach to the design: An invisible hinge was added on the wire frame to allow the wearer to collapse and store the sunglasses with ease.
The sunglasses are created to be completely customizable, with lenses that can be switched and interchanged. “It’s a nice way to marry off a desire for newness and new designs and allow people to experiment and play — but to do so in a way that is less demanding on the material,” Cole said.
The wire frames — handmade by a family-run business in Italy — retail between 140 pounds and 270 pounds and the interchangeable rims retail at 50 pounds.
To mark the opening of the pop-up, Cole and Neuman have created a special-edition pair of glasses inspired by Selfridges’ heritage, priced at 220 pounds.
Sustainability was also a driving force behind the design. “We minimize waste in the production process because we 3-D print the rim instead

Escada Preps for First New York Fashion Week Show, Amid Brand Revamp

LONDON — Escada has been in the process of refreshing its image, having recruited designer Niall Sloan and introduced a new store concept on London’s Sloane Street last year.
Now, to mark this shift in direction and the brand’s 40th anniversary, the German label is planning its first runway show during New York Fashion Week, in a bid to highlight its international appeal and speak to a broader audience.
“Given all our activities around the refreshing of our brand, we felt that this was a fantastic moment to go out and join an international fashion week. We decided to go to New York because the U.S. is one of our core markets; we have been there since day one. We have a strong retail presence in the country and very strong relationships with some of the best department stores,” said Iris Epple-Righi, the brand’s chief executive officer. “We need to show the brand to a wider audience, which we wouldn’t have been able to [achieve] if we were to only do a presentation.”

Bonobos and the Modern Male: A New Brand Story

For some time, the story around Bonobos has been its fits, diversity of styling and the $ 310 million deal to Walmart. 
But how to build a brand that lasts? The message might need to be more than product and the company’s doubling down on its marketing with a new campaign called Project172, which kicked off Monday with the launch of two TV spots. 
The campaign — with the TV commercials paired with a national e-mail, social media and radio campaign — enlisted 172 men (the total number of sizes and fit combinations in Bonobos pants), all wearing the same pair of stretch washed chinos in the same color, to share their thoughts on gender stereotypes and the changing definition of masculinity. The company is set to release on May 21 a mini-documentary with footage from conversations with those 172 individuals talking about their definition of masculinity. 
“We have been working in the last couple of years in terms of trying to position Bonobos from a brand perspective as a brand that stands for not just great fitting clothing but really helping men find their fit in the world, recognizing that the world is changing dramatically and particularly for men changing,” said Bonobos copresident

L.A. Brand Rails Founder Jeff Abrams Speaks About London Store Plans, Plots Accessories and Homewares Expansion

LONDON-BOUND: Los Angeles-based label Rails founder Jeff Abrams says he feels like he’s been in expansion mode since he started his company with upcoming plans to open a store in London and potentially grow his line to include accessories and homewares.
Stocked at Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and Trilogy, he recently held a pop-up showcase at Harrods showcasing his full spring 2018 women’s wear range, which was filled with his signature shirts, easy dresses and rompers. Prices ranged from 140 pounds for a shirt to 300 pounds for denim or knitwear.
Launched in 2008, the label is known for its luxe soft button down shirts won by the likes of celebrities including Jessica Alba and Kendall Jenner.
He said there’s a lot of room for growth for his brand in Europe. “We’re always trying to identify places where we have room for growth,” Abrams said. “Even in this market where we’ve been for a couple of years, there’s still so many places where we’re not selling yet. We’re actively growing those markets in Asia, Middle East, South America. There are so many places that we can see customers are visiting us online and buying our product, but we may not have retail distribution and

Kors Signs Pro Golfer Charl Schwartzel as First Golf Brand Ambassador

KORS HITS THE LINKS: Michael Kors has signed a sponsorship deal with South African professional golfer and Masters champion Charl Schwartzel. The partnership will feature Schwartzel as the brand’s first golf ambassador wearing Michael Kors Men’s apparel throughout his worldwide appearances, which include PGA, European and Sunshine tour events.
“Charl has reached the pinnacle of achievement in the game of golf and his exceptional career is the reason why he is the perfect ambassador for Michael Kors,” said John D. Idol, chairman and chief executive officer of Michael Kors Holdings Ltd. “Not only is Charl one of the most accomplished players on the tour but he represents the timeless values as well as the traditions of the sport. We are proud that he will represent us both on and off the course.”
Schwartzel said he was honored to be representing a luxury brand such as Kors. “Michael Kors Men’s sportswear provides the perfect combination of fit, form and function while I’m competing. I’m also excited to collaborate with the company on the development of their sportswear, providing input on performance features to be incorporated in the line.”

Patrick Grant Creates E-commerce Site for Community Clothing Brand

LOCAL COLOR: Patrick Grant is on a mission to create skilled jobs in the U.K. textile and apparel industry, and he’s taking his work a step further with plans to launch an e-commerce site for the not-for-profit Community Clothing label, which he founded in 2016.
Grant, who owns the men’s clothing brand E. Tautz and Savile Row tailor Norton & Sons, launched Community Clothing with the aim of making affordable clothing, creating jobs and supporting British textile communities. It uses a direct-to-consumer model and offers basics for men and women, with a focus on denim and outerwear.
“We want to sustain and create a lot of skilled jobs in the textile and garment making industry. We think we can create 5,000 in the U.K.,” he said. “We’d like it to be big because the bigger it gets, the more jobs it creates,” Grant said. “The more efficient the factories become, the lower the prices, the better for everyone. We think the U.K. market for the product we make is huge, tens of billions, and most of the incumbents are failing to deliver.”
As part of his expansion plans, Grant will launch an e-commerce site early April that will also feature behind the scenes stories and interviews with British

J Brand RTW Fall 2018

J Brand’s fall lineup was divided into three categories: Super Evening, Super Fashion and Super Color. All of it was super Nineties, putting it super on trend. There were sheer organza “jean” jacket tops and blazers and organza details on jeans, an oversize crushed velvet jacket and pants, and a minimalist ribbed cashmere slipdress. As for the actual jeans, they came high-waisted and skinny with button flies and pockets, in holographic silver and a style that zipped up the front of the leg from ankle to waist. To play up the brand’s Los Angeles roots, the look book was shot at Chateau Marmont on Jacquelyn Jablonski, styled with combat boots to emphasize the Nineties-ness of it all.

Gilt to Tease New Men’s Brand During Pre-Super Bowl Festivities

Gilt is latching onto the frenzy surrounding Sunday’s Super Bowl to drum up interest in its new private label men’s brand. Called NHP, the collection will launch on the Gilt web site in June and rollout to sister Saks Off 5th stores in the fall.
NHP, which stands for New High Performance, will include both tailored clothing and sportswear and is targeted to the athletic Millennial male.
Wednesday night in Minneapolis, the host city of the Patriots-Eagles matchup this weekend, Gilt will host a cocktail party and preview the collection for the announcers, celebrities, professional athletes and influencers in town for the game.
“We are looking to develop a program for young, fashionable guys, and we think there’s a big opportunity for hip, cool, updated suits that are closer to the body,” said Tom Ott, chief merchant of Gilt and Saks Off 5th. “There are not a lot of options for those guys at the lower end of the market.”
The suits will retail for $ 495 and will feature high-performance fabrics and attributes such as comfort and flexibility, he said. Ath-leisure sportswear looks will also be offered.
At the event in Minneapolis, the looks will all be styled with sneakers to make the point that

Sisley Unveils New Hair-care Brand

BRAND NEW: Sisley is launching a new brand — this time, for hair.
“It’s a rather emotional moment for us to introduce a new brand,” said Philippe d’Ornano, president of Sisley, during a party held in Paris on Monday evening. “The last brand we launched was by my mother and father — Sisley.” That was in 1976.
Cut to today, and the luxury beauty company will shortly roll out Hair Rituel by Sisley, whose product collection includes a revitalizing volumizing shampoo, a revitalizing smoothing shampoo, a restructuring conditioner, a regenerating hair mask and a hair-care oil.

“We are really treatment specialists,” said Isabelle d’Ornano, Philippe’s mother, after the screening of a brief film to present the brand. Hair care, after all, is considered the new skin care today.

EXCLUSIVE: Winona Ryder Named L’Oréal Paris Brand Ambassador

L’Oréal Paris has tapped Winona Ryder to appear in a campaign tied to a massive rebrand of its U.S. hair business, WWD has exclusively learned.
A “robust, 360-campaign” comprising digital, social, TV and print advertising is set to launch Sunday during the Golden Globes with a TV commercial featuring Ryder, said Anne Marie Nelson-Bogle, senior vice president of marketing at L’Oréal Paris.
Titled “The Comeback,” the campaign is tied to the repositioning of the majority of the L’Oréal Paris hair-care products, including shampoos, conditioners and treatments, plus a few new products, under a new franchise called Elvive.
The Elvive platform focuses on damage prevention, a message L’Oréal is hoping U.S. consumers — fond of curling irons, blowouts, dry shampoo and bleach — will relate to. L’Oréal research found that eight in 10 women in the U.S. have damaged hair — and 18- to 34-year-olds in particular overindex in hot-tool-related damage.
“Everyone does love a comeback, and we will be communicating that damaged hair deserves one, too,” said Nelson-Bogle of the new campaign. “For Winona, we know that from TV sets to the red carpet, her hair has gone through many transformations — her hair is dry and damaged.”
In a commercial airing during the Golden Globes,

Designer Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Husband and Brand Cofounder Divorcing

It looks like the married owners of cult favorite boutique and brand Maryam Nassir Zadeh are headed for a split.
Eponymous founder Maryam Nassir Zadeh and her husband and business partner Uday Kak, who is also a photographer, made a contested divorce filing in a local Brooklyn court late last week. Documents in the case are sealed, but a contested filing generally means there is either a dispute over child custody, assets or both.
The now-former couple shares two daughters and public profiles list Zadeh and Kak as partners in the boutique, which has a storefront in New York’s Lower East Side, along with a popular e-commerce business. There is also a Maryam Nassir Zadeh line of shoes and bags, priced roughly between $ 400 and $ 900, as well as design-forward apparel, which Zadeh designs and has expanded over the last year.
Zadeh held her second fashion show in September at the East River Track in New York, with seating on bleachers and a surprise performance by Solange Knowles. She’s been producing seasonal collections since spring 2015.

The boutique carries a number of luxury designers, from the established to the new, like Marni, Rochas, Isabel Marant, Jacquemus, Lemaire, Jesse Kamm and Dumitrascu, and offers an

Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Pre-Fall 2018

Founded in 2000, Italy’s Golden Goose Deluxe Brand has more recently been growing within the U.S. For pre-fall 2018, the brand designed a ready-to-wear and shoe collection around a fictitious woman who fantasized about stories of her grandfather, should she have ever met him. Notes from the designers claimed the collection, “is an ode to real imagination and imagined realities.” Vintage references ran throughout; there was Forties-inspired suiting, like a lilac set or striped trouser, along with multiple trenchcoats with full gun flap and box pleats. Men’s wear references and the reemergence of the brand’s original cowboy boots were also strong throughout. A mismatch of graphics — celestial, collegiate, tropical scenes, logos and floral prints — could have been pared down to make the whole idea more concise.

How Tommy John Introduces Its Brand to Macy’s Customers

Tommy John has made its way to Macy’s.
The men’s underwear brand, which was founded by Tom Patterson in 2008, began as an online-only company, but eventually moved into wholesale partnerships with Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue. Now, the company has secured a selling area at Macy’s Herald Square where Tommy John will operate a holiday pop-up that’s open through January.
“The underwear section of any department can be a very crowded space with hundreds of brands, styles and silhouettes cramped into limited square footage,” said Patterson. “By choosing to launch the Tommy John pop-up in Macy’s Herald Square, we’ve pulled Tommy John away from all the underwear brands on the market and taken over our own space to showcase the product and its features and benefits.”
In addition to a pop-up that showcases what Patterson described as an improved shopping experience that transforms underwear from a commodity to a more considered purchase, the company made a splash with an appearance from  comedian Kevin Hart, who invests in Tommy John and recently released collaborative product with the company. The first 200 customers who purchased pieces from the Tommy John x Kevin Hart collection were able to meet Hart, take a photo with him

J Brand RTW Spring 2018

Staged in a sun-filled studio set with loads of green plants and wicker chairs on which the models lounged, it was easy to infer an organic, clean California aesthetic from J Brand’s spring collection. The collection’s jeans — many cropped with high waists, wide or straight legs in powdery pink, natural off-white and traditional blue indigo — will pair well with the pottery-loving, gluten- and dairy-free cool girl’s lifestyle. From jean jackets to white Ts to a black leather miniskirt, the shapes were mostly clean and classic with little to no whiskering and the only distressing a raw hem or two. For the first time, men’s was included in the presentation, with the guys playing perfect counterpart to the girls in skinny jeans and relaxed jackets in shades of white, gray and faded blue.

Drew Barrymore Launches Lifestyle Brand on Amazon Fashion

Drew Barrymore today launches a contemporary lifestyle brand called Dear Drew on Amazon Fashion. Described as “a love letter to women around the world,” the collection includes apparel, handbags, jewelry, luggage, hair tools, lingerie and loungewear, priced from $ 28 to $ 248.
In the first campaign image, Barrymore wears the Mulberry Street tie-front skirt, SoHo fan drop earrings, Little Italy identification bracelet, NoLIta cuff and You are Strong clutch. While the items are clearly inspired by New York neighborhoods, the collection is meant to have an international appeal.
“We’re delighted to be teaming up with Drew Barrymore to debut her new brand on Amazon Fashion,” said Amazon Fashion director Kate Dimmock, who praised Barrymore’s “impressive career and creative energy,” as well as her “free-spirited style.”
Amazon Fashion has private label basics brands Lark & Ro, Ella Moon, Mae, Paris Sunday, Amazon Essentials, Buttoned Down, Good Threads and Scout + Ro, but Dear Drew is the first celebrity-driven fashion brand launching on the e-tailer.

Helly Hansen to Acquire British Outdoor Brand Musto

GREAT OUTDOORS: In a marriage of two European outdoor performance brands, Helly Hansen has said it plans to acquire Musto, the British specialist sailing and country apparel company, from Phoenix Equity Partners and other shareholders. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Norwegian Helly Hansen, which specializes in sailing and skiwear, climbing and mountaineering gear, said the purchase will allow it to become a global leader in professional sailing apparel and expand its reach in the U.K.
Musto has two British Royal Warrants and is the official supplier to the British National Sailing Team and the British Equestrian Federation through the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
The acquisition is part of a long-term growth strategy set out by Helly Hansen in 2015 that has seen the brand invest in product development and enhance distribution channels. Helly Hansen said it plans to invest in Musto’s international growth ambitions and deepen its technological and sourcing capabilities.
Peter Smith, chief executive officer of Musto, will continue in his role, and report to Paul Stoneham, his counterpart at Helly Hansen, who will also become executive chairman of Musto.
“Our focus will be to expand Musto internationally as an iconic British lifestyle brand with deep technical sailing credentials alongside Helly Hansen. The

That campaign garnered its best results ever earlier in September when the Montreal-based brand owned by Reitmans became part of New York Fashion Week’s official 2017 shows.
According to data from NYFW producer IMG, “Addition Elle was the most viewed video from Fashion Week’s web and app platforms, getting 45,000 views within 24 hours of being posted,” said Roslyn Griner, Addition Elle’s vice president of visual planning and marketing.
“Those numbers were more than triple the amount of Fashion Week’s second-most watched video, which featured Gigi Hadid on the Prabal Gurung runway,” Griner revealed.
Addition Elle also gained 20,000 new fans on Instagram during fashion week, while its live feed got 74,000 videos, which represented a 54 percent view rate.
Moreover, Miss Universe, Miss America, actresses Danielle Brooks, Gabourey Sidibe and other celebrities watched the September show from their front-row seats, while Addition Elle’s new Jordyn Woods collection gained exposure on fashion magazines’ web sites.
Addition Elle also used Ashley Graham in its Sept. 11 show to help boost the brand’s fashion democracy message.

George Zimmer Acquires Competing Online Tuxedo Rental Brand

George Zimmer is building his empire.
Generation Tux, the online tuxedo rental business founded in 2014 by the gravelly voiced founder of Men’s Wearhouse has acquired a competing business called Menguin in a stock exchange deal worth $ 25 million.
As part of the deal, Menguin has relocated to Louisville, Ky., the headquarters of Generation Tux, and its chief executive officer, Justin Delaney, will become president of both brands, which will continue to be run as separate businesses. His cofounder Bogdan Constantin will serve as chief marketing officer.
“I met these guys about a year ago and they had a small company that was doing about the same volume we do,” Zimmer said. “But the difference was that we invested many millions more than they did. They built their business on old-fashioned hard work and knowledge.”

The four-year-old Menguin has been experiencing a compound annual growth rate of 800 percent. Generation Tux expects to have sales next year of between $ 20 million and $ 30 million.
He said the number of rentals and revenue of the two companies was similar, but the expense structure at Generation Tux is much higher. One marked difference is that Menguin did not own its rental inventory while Generation Tux does.

Timberland Introduces New Boot Style With Nationwide Brand Activation

Timberland is embracing creative product drops.
The VF Corp.-owned outdoors brand has introduced Ghost White, its first six-inch, all-white boot. The limited-edition style will be released this week. The company will celebrate the launch by rolling out six customized ice cream trucks today in New York, Baltimore and Washington, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Los Angeles, where customers will be gifted free ice cream and compete for a chance to get a free pair of boots. The ice cream trucks will be stationed outside of participating Timberland retailers where shoppers can purchase the boot.
“Timberland is a well-respected brand, but I thought it was important to let people interact with the brand,” said Mel Peralta, Timberland’s lifestyle marketing manager, who was hired by the brand in March to handle all of its brand collaborations.
In terms of the boot’s design, Peralta said this is an effort from Timberland to integrate functionality with style.
“This is our first white-on-white colorway on our classic six-inch premium silhouette,” said Peralta. “For us it’s a superimportant boot that’s the perfect marriage between heritage and style. It has the DNA of a workman boot because it’s waterproof, but it’s a stylish look.”
Timberland will celebrate the launch with an event at
