Laudomia Pucci: How Styling Keeps Brands Fresh Across Generations

LOS ANGELES — “Don’t crush your chiffon, honey,” Neiman Marcus senior vice president and global fashion director Ken Downing advised a model.
The 10 women stood in a makeshift backstage, styled by Downing for an afternoon in-store event at the retailer’s Beverly Hills store on Wilshire Boulevard. They wore pieces from an exclusive Emilio Pucci capsule collection for Neiman Marcus.
Laudomia Pucci, the brand’s image director in town for the event, went to the archives to deliver a fresh spin on seasoned prints originating from the late Sixties and early Seventies for the resort capsule.
“I think the idea here was to have the ‘perfect wardrobe’ for resort escape,” she said. “And, of course, in this store there is not much resort-beachwear. So it’s morning-to-evening in the season. It’s what we call ‘Pucci perfect’ because you just easily put it in a suitcase. It’s light and you have everything. It goes from the beach, swim, caftan, eveningwear. So you can dress it up and dress it down as you wish and it’s styled as you wish.”
It’s all in the styling that allows for brands to remain relevant across generations, Pucci said, offering that the business her father started has remained appealing to younger

Dsquared2 Revamps the Brand’s First Fragrance and Introduces a Women’s Version  

TIM-BER!: “We’re not killing trees anymore,” said Dean Caten of Dsquared2 at the exclusive launch of the brand’s revamped Wood fragrance, which no longer has wooden packaging.
The men’s and women’s fragrances — brown for the boys and pink for the girls — now takes the shape of a hefty beer bottle.
The 30-ml. bottle sells for 44 pounds and the 100-ml. bottle sells for 75 pounds. The fragrance launches at Harvey Nichols on Monday and the Caten brothers expressed the importance of launching exclusively with the department store.
“It’s important to give an exclusive to somebody because it makes it more important as opposed to coming out everywhere. It’s more intimate this way,” said Dean.
In May, Dsquared2 inked a licensing agreement with Euroitalia for the production and distribution of the brand’s fragrances, and Wood is the first perfume to be relaunched under this new partnership.
The men’s fragrance has been reworked while the women’s is a completely new scent created by perfumer Marie Salamagne. Both incorporate similar base notes such as white wood and ambrox.
“We’ve scrapped all of our other perfumes and since Wood was our first fragrance and our bestseller, we’re relaunching with this,” said Dan.
While the fragrance has been divided into men’s and

Max Mara Group Brands Present Capsules at MFW

FROM NANTUCKET TO MIAMI: Weekend Max Mara launched the new “Nantucket” Signature Collection in collaboration with American interior designer Anthony Baratta. The 12-piece capsule, inspired by Cape Cod, is a leisurely collection of strong looks that are easy and casual at the same time. “It all started with patterns, which turned into a collection,” said Baratta. His own and favorite designs are recognizable and add personality to a white cotton blouse with a whimsical Chinese vase or a long skirt with nautical motifs, for example. “It’s nice to see your vision taken in a different way,” he said. The capsule is joyful and romantic. Full-skirted sleeveless dresses are available in strawberry-colored gingham and blue stripes, both with passementerie rickrack trim. A flowing mid-calf length circular skirt is printed with a delicate rose motif on micro gingham checks. A patchwork of roses, gingham checks and stripes rejuvenate an asymmetric dress. The collection will be available in all Weekend Max Mara stores and on the brand’s web site starting in March next year.

Doug Ewert to Leave as CEO of Tailored Brands in September

Tailored Brands caused a few jaws to drop Tuesday afternoon when it said that Doug Ewert, its longtime chief executive officer, will be retiring from his position and his post on the board on Sept. 30. At the same time, Bruce Thorn resigned from his position as president and chief operating officer, effective Aug. 31. The company said Thorn is leaving to pursue another opportunity and his new role is expected to be revealed shortly.
Tailored Brands said that “to ensure an orderly transition,” Ewert will serve as a strategic adviser to the company until the end of the calendar year. The board is currently initiating “a comprehensive search process” to identify a new ceo.
Ewert did not respond to a request for further comment on Tuesday.
Ewert, 54, has been with the parent company of Men’s Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank for more than two decades. But his tenure in the past few years has been rocky. He was at the helm of the business during a nasty, public fight with the corporation’s founder, George Zimmer, that resulted in Zimmer being ousted from the firm in 2013.
Ewert was also in charge during the $ 1.8 billion acquisition of competitor Jos. A. Bank Clothiers

New Report Highlights House of Fraser’s Mounting Debt to Brands

LONDON — Trouble continues to mount at House of Fraser as a recent report by Ernst & Young, the professional services firm, cites that the retailer owes millions of pounds to its creditors, including major luxury brand partners.
The retail chain, which was bought on Friday morning by Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley, is indebted to a slew of retailers including Giorgio Armani, Mulberry and Kurt Geiger.
Kurt Geiger is owed 4.9 million pounds, Giorgio Armani 1.59 million pounds, Mulberry 2.4 million pounds, Warehouse 1.4 million pounds and J. Barbour 3 million pounds.
The news follows at the heels of a payment dispute between XPO Logistics, which runs two of HoF’s warehouses, and Sports Direct, who has stopped fulfilling orders for the retailer and who is owed 30.4 million pounds.
As a result, HoF shut down its web site, reportedly sitting on at least 50,000 unfulfilled online orders. XPO Logistics and Sports Direct could not be reached for comment.
The report also shows that HoF made a pretax loss of 4.1 million pounds for the year to Jan. 21, 2018 and in the first quarter to April 28, the retailer witnessed a 7.7 percent drop in turnover with earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization

All the Times Fast Food Brands Clapped Back at Their Haters on Twitter

Oooh, burn!

In recent years, Twitter has become a major marketing tool for all brands, but it’s also become a great way for fast food joints to clap back at their haters (and their competition).

While Wendy’s quickly gained a reputation for having the sassiest Twitter on the block, especially because of their ongoing feud with McDonald’s over fresh versus frozen beef, other brands took notice and began dishing out their own snarky tweets in response to customer questions, celebrity news, or other brands’ promotions.

Read on for some of the best zingers from the fast food giants.

Taco Bell

While Taco Bell doesn’t typically engage in social media fights, the brand has had a few standout moments from their own Twitter account, including their correction of a grammar error in one of White Castle’s tweets to Chrissy Teigen. The taco joint also fired back at Old Spice when the deodorant company accused the fast food chain of false advertising.

DiGiorno

Frozen pizza company DiGiorno also joined in on the fun, inciting a pizza war with Papa John’s. The frozen pizza chain mocked Papa John’s slogan “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza.” when they tweeted a declining graph meant to represent Papa John’s sales above a tweet that read, “Better Pizza. Better Sales.” The company also briefly changed their bio to the new slogan to spite Papa John’s.

Burger King

Aside from their epic promposal to Wendy’s on a marquee sign outside of one of their restaurants, Burger King has also thrown shade at the company on social media. First, the chain used social media to promote their spicy chicken nuggets, a menu item that Wendy’s had previously discontinued, leaving the Twitter-verse in an outrage. The brand found people’s old tweets asking where Wendy’s spicy nuggets went and used them as advertising for their own spicy nugget addition to their menu.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Then, Burger King promoted a 5 for $ 4 deal just days after Wendy’s announced their 4 for $ 4 deal. Even though they didn’t mention the square-burger chain in their tweet directly, Twitter users were quick to notice the shade in their tweet which read, “Because 5 is better than 4.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

However, Wendy’s never goes down without a fight, so when a Twitter user, who has since switched their account to private, asked what Wendy’s had in response to the deal, they responded with two simple words: “edible food.”

Wendy’s

Of course, Wendy’s has the longest history of roasting people on Twitter, including their iconic tweet suggesting that asking to be directed to the nearest McDonald’s is essentially the same as asking to be directed to a garbage can.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The company also recently called out pro-golfer Tiger Woods when he flubbed his first hole at the 2018 U.S. Open, scoring an unimpressive triple bogey. “Tiger, next time you’re going to get a triple…” the brand tweeted beneath a photo of their triple cheeseburger.

CEO Talks: Tailored Brands’ Doug Ewert and His Unwavering Focus

It was a David-and-Goliath-type of situation when the Men’s Wearhouse was negotiating to buy its archrival Jos. A. Bank a little more than four years ago. There was a back-and-forth bidding war between the competitors and ultimately, the larger Men’s Wearhouse walked away victorious.
But be careful what you wish for.
While the merger created the largest men’s specialty store chain in the U.S., the $ 1.8 billion acquisition added a hefty amount of debt to Men’s Wearhouse’s balance sheet and the Bank business was in worse shape than its acquirer realized. The promotional strategy it used to drive sales — buy-one-get-one, two, three or even seven, free — was unsustainable.
For two years, chief executive officer Doug Ewert took heat from Wall Street as he worked tirelessly to turn the Bank business around. Today, the newly named Tailored Brands Inc. has turned the corner, quadrupling profits in 2017 and posting comparable-store sales gains at its flagship Men’s Wearhouse and the Jos. A. Bank division.
Here, Ewert discusses the challenging journey to prosperity, the outlook for both businesses as well as its Joseph Abboud brand, its Moores division in Canada, the K&G superstore concept, and the outsized growth the company is experiencing in custom clothing.

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

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

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

How Brands Are Speaking to the Everyday Millennial Male

Hamid Onifade has an amenable face. In one shot, he can look brooding and mysterious, but with just the slightest tilt of his head or upturn of his mouth he’s innocent and childlike. He has a serene, warm visage that’s accessible, but still genetically superior.
Onifade, a 23-year-old male model from Benin, in West Africa, has been working a lot lately. He’s become the representative of choice for men’s brands and retailers that are hoping to break through the noise and incite the everyday guy, who’s not wholly engaged with streetwear, to shop. Onifade has worked for J. Crew, but he’s also modeled for Target’s men’s line, Goodfellow & Co., which launched last fall, and Goodthreads, a private label from Amazon that was made available in 2017 and is exclusive to Prime members.
Onifade hasn’t modeled for Walmart, but the big-box retailer is also reassessing how it reaches men. Aside from acquiring Bonobos last June, a company for which Onifade has modeled, Walmart recently reintroduced George, a men’s private label from its British affiliate Asda.
The activity within the men’s wear space is quantifiable. According to Euromonitor, the men’s apparel and footwear categories have grown by 19 percent globally over the past five years

Custom Becoming a Cash Cow for Tailored Brands

Tailored Brands will continue to capitalize on the strength of its custom clothing business in 2018 — after growing the category to more than $ 100 million in sales last year.
In reporting strong results for 2017 after the market closed Wednesday, Doug Ewert, chief executive officer, said he believes the company is now “the largest and fastest-growing retailer of men’s custom clothing. So far this year, custom sales are now trending above $ 3 million per week, and we are clearly in the early innings of this opportunity. With custom suits starting at around $ 400, we can serve a large addressable market of men who want a personalized look and a perfect fit and a reasonable price.”
He said the plan is to “significantly increase the penetration of custom as a percentage of total suits sold.” The bedrock of this strategy is the company’s ability to deliver a custom suit in an increasingly shorter period of time. “During 2017, we tested expedited custom delivery and validated our hypothesis that the faster we can deliver a custom suit, the more customers will give it a try,” he said.
Earlier this year, Tailored Brands said it will now deliver Joseph Abboud or Jos. A. Bank Reserve

Intimate Apparel Brands Target Bigger Market at CurveNY

NEW YORK — The CurveNY trade show, which took place at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center last week in New York, had a brand new location. As opposed to being at the far end of the venue, it was connected to Coterie, which was a welcome change for intimate apparel buyers and retailers who are attempting broaden their customer base by aligning more with ready-to-wear and offering fashion pieces.
Paul Stuart made its CurveNY debut with a line of made-to-order women’s robes that retail for $ 595. The company introduced these robes shortly after Paulette Garafalo joined as chief executive officer in the middle of 2016. The CurveNY show was their first attempt to wholesale the line, which the company said has been well received — they picked up three new stockists.

Tailored Brands Accelerates Custom-Clothing Deliveries

Custom clothing has turned out to be a major growth opportunity for Tailored Brands — the category brought in more than $ 100 million in sales in fiscal 2017.
And now the corporation’s Men’s Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank divisions are upgrading their Made in America custom clothing program by cutting down on the time required for deliveries from four weeks to three.
“As one of the largest and fastest-growing custom clothing retailers for men,” said Doug Ewert, chief executive officer of Tailored Brands Inc., “our brands have a distinct competitive advantage in that we can deliver beautifully constructed custom suits to our customers faster through our Made in America manufacturing process.”
At Men’s Wearhouse, the Joseph Abboud custom line offers more than 150 fabric choices from Italian mills in various silhouettes and styles. The collection is manufactured at the Joseph Abboud Manufacturing Corp. factory in New Bedford, Mass. At Jos. A. Bank, custom clothing is available under the Reserve name and includes more than 120 fabric choices. This collection is also made in the U.S. and features a mold-able half-canvas chest piece and a unique natural sloping shoulder.

Chinese Investors Continue Hot Pursuit of European Brands

CHINA CLUB: The march of the big-ticket Chinese investor continues. Having just announced plans to buy Bally for an undisclosed price, Shandong Ruyi may have another European acquisition it its sights: Arcadia Group.
The Chinese textile giant that controls SMCP and Hong Kong’s Trinity Group is said to be eyeing Arcadia, parent of Topshop and Topman, according to a report in The Sunday Times of London.
The report said Shandong could buy all or part of Arcadia, which also owns high-street retailers such as Burton, Miss Selfridge and Evans. The sale of the Topshop and Topman properties could prove trickier as Leonard Green & Partners holds a 25 percent stake in those businesses. LGP purchased the stake in 2012 in a deal that valued the retailers at 2 billion pounds.
An Arcadia spokesman could not be reached for comment on Sunday, and industry sources have dismissed the report, which appeared in the paper’s business section. It would not be unusual for the aggressive Shandong to be looking at any number of Western companies, given its recent buying spree.
Earlier this month, it announced plans to buy Bally, and in November, it took a majority stake in Hong Kong’s Trinity Ltd., parent of brands including

What to Watch: How Emerging Streetwear Brands Are Navigating 2018

What’s next for streetwear? Critics of the category say the frenzy — see ComplexCon or the crowds that form around Supreme every week — is unsustainable and unhealthy for the market. Newer brands, meanwhile, believe it’s an ideal time to expand their businesses. Here, three young streetwear brands detail how they will approach the year and what they believe is in the pipeline for the category.

By 2014, Andrade started his own line, 424, that’s been picked up by retailers including Barneys New York and SSENSE.

5 Latina Beauty Brands You’ll Want in Your Stocking

Latina entrepreneurs have undoubtedly been on the rise. Time reported in 2016 there’s been a 137 percent increase in Latina-owned businesses, a larger rise than in any other demographic in the U.S. Chicas also seem to be cornering the market on creating quality beauty brands, having founded cosmetic lines that have received recognition and made a lasting impression on the beauty world with their inclusive shades and innovative products.

So what makes these brands stand out in a highly active and oversaturated market? See below for what’s hot on our holiday radar:

MELT COSMETICS 

Co-founder of Melt Cosmetics and Mexican-American makeup artist Lora Arellano is the brains behind many of Rihanna’s most iconic looks. Alongside business partner Dana Bomar, Arellano’s brand is curated with originality and artistry in mind.  These fierce chica bosses could even be credited with the rising trend of blue, purple and even green lipstick.

KAT VON D BEAUTY

The Mexican-born Argentinian tattoo artist, model, beauty entrepreneur and television personality known as Kat Von D has been a leading pioneer in the beauty industry since Sephora tapped her to create a collection in 2008. She told PopSugar her Latin background plays a huge role in everything she does, including the Spanish shade names and themes for her makeup collection.

BEAUTYBLENDER 

Portuguese and Mexican beauty innovator Rea Ann Silva has forever changed the way we apply makeup and we are never going back — nunca I say!  The egg-shaped sponge came to life in ’07. It’s mostly known as the seamless liquid foundation applicator, but works well for powdering, highlighting and contouring.

BESAME COSMETICS

Argentinian-American Gabriela Hernandez created Besame Cosmetics with vintage enthusiasts and makeup historians in mind. She spares no expense when it comes to detail. She enjoys working with graphic elements from the Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Machine Age, Egyptian Revival and Orientalist periods to evoke the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.

RAHUA BEAUTY

New York City hairstylist, colorist and advocate for the conservation of the Amazon, Fabian Lliguin, a native Ecuadorian of Quechua descent, created the brand after learning the ancient beauty practices of the women of the Quecha-Shuar tribe. The plant-derived hair and body care line is formulated by one of the Amazon’s best-kept beauty secrets: Rahua.

Beauty is a cultural experience and form of expression passed down from abuelas, tias, and even hermanos (yes, we’re talking about you MannyMUA), so pay homage to your heritage with these great Latina-crafted finds at your nearest Sephora or Ulta¡Apúrate!

Streetwear Brands Cash In

When Supreme opened its Brooklyn store in early October, WWD asked Angelo Baque, the streetwear company’s former brand director who still oversees its art direction, if the business had changed since it collaborated with Louis Vuitton earlier in the year. His response? Everything was business as usual.
But the next day, WWD broke news that The Carlyle Group could be close to a deal to invest in the company. WWD later learned that the investment, which involved the private equity giant paying $ 500 million for a 50 percent stake in the business, had happened in July and the collaborative collection with Vuitton, which was unveiled at the brand’s men’s wear show in Paris in June, helped seal the deal.
The transaction gave Supreme an enterprise value of $ 1.1 billion, including $ 1 billion in equity and $ 100 million in debt. That translates into just under 10-times the company’s projected earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization of about $ 100 million, sources said.
Supreme declined to comment, but the deal has raised questions about the future of the cool kid brand — and streetwear in general. It immediately turned what was already fashion’s hottest sector into an even hotter one.

Earnings per share came in 21 cents ahead of the 54 cents analysts projected and helped push shares of the company up 12 percent, to $ 19.26, in after-hours trading Wednesday.
Sales for the three months ended Oct. 28 fell 4.3 percent to $ 810.8 million from $ 846.9 million.
“While we still have more work to do, we are pleased with the progress in our business in the third quarter,” said Doug Ewert, chief executive officer. “We posted positive comparable sales at Jos. A. Bank and sequential comparable-sales improvement at Men’s Wearhouse and K&G, resulting in our second consecutive quarter of positive comparable sales for our retail segment.”
In the period, comparable-store sales at Jos. A. Bank increased 4.9 percent. Comps at the Men’s Wearhouse division fell 1 percent, Moores in Canada was down 2.6 percent and K&G was down 0.6 percent, he said.

Street Signs: Roc-a-Fella Cofounder on Building Streetwear Brands

On Nov. 30, Nike will celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Air Force One by releasing five different styles designed by Errolson Hugh of Acronym, Virgil Abloh of Off-White, rapper Travis Scott, Don Crawley of Just Don, and Roc-a-Fella Records cofounder Kareem “Biggs” Burke.
Burke is the unofficial godfather of the group, and in many ways planted the seed from which the rest of the collaborators sprouted. It starts with Roc-a-Fella, which he founded with Jay-Z and Damon Dash in 1994, then moves on to Kanye West, who signed to Roc-a-Fella in the early Aughts. Both Abloh and Crawley, better known as Don C, are directly connected to West — Abloh was his creative director at one point and Crawley served as the road manager and DJ from time to time. And Scott is signed to Good Music, which is West’s record label.
“This is the offspring of what we’ve built,” said Burke. “To see Virgil and Don C’s success, I love that. People talk about legacy and how I want to be remembered and I just want that family tree to keep growing.”
The Roc-a-Fella Air Force One is the only shoe from the capsule that isn’t an entirely new design. In

Brands Distancing Themselves From Louise Linton Instagram Post

Valentino has no qualms in denying any ties to Louise Linton after the new wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin posted on Instagram an image of herself exiting a government plane and provided a slew of designer hashtags.
A spokeswoman said plainly that “Louise Linton did not receive any gifted merchandise, compensation or loans from Valentino” when asked whether the company had any formal business interest in being tagged in a late Monday post by Linton.
The actress, whose most high-profile role to date is a 2007 appearance on “CSI: NY,” is also not affiliated in any way with and has received no free merchandise from Tom Ford, a brand she also mentioned in her post.
With tags like “#rolandmouret pants,” “#tomford sunnies,” “#hermesscarf,” and “#valentinorockstudheels #valentino,” it seemed like Linton was taking after the growing droves of digital influencers that are compensated for mentioning brands and their products on social media. Instagram is particularly popular for branded influencer-created content.

Brands to Ride Wave of Strong Demand at Miami Swim Week

MIAMI — As the retail sector reels, swimwear is sitting pretty. It’s just the good news that vendors and buyers want to hear as they head to the annual Miami Swim Week, whose three trade shows — SwimShow, Hammock and Cabana — begin July 22.
Neck-and-neck with outerwear and ath-leisure for healthy sales, swimwear is one of the few categories still registering growth, according to The NPD Group Inc. The market research firm reported U.S. swimwear sales totaled $ 5 billion from the beginning of June 2016 through the end of May 2017, a 10 percent increase on the same period during the previous year. Innovative fit and fabrics, the wellness movement, and being an early, natural adapter to e-commerce are factors buoying the category when much of the apparel industry is sinking.
“The definitive message on the street is that swimwear is an unstoppable force,” said SwimShow director Judy Stein, of beach-to-boardwalk styles having reached critical mass popularity. “This trend has fueled both start-ups and established brands.”
Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst for The NPD Group, further cited comfort, durability and improved sizing as reasons consumers feel confident in purchasing swimwear compared to sportswear with its fussier fits and come-and-go trends.

British Brands Converge on U.S. Men’s Market

With Brexit looming and the potential loss of commerce with other European nations, the U.K. fashion and textile industry is increasing its focus on the American market.
At the men’s trade shows in New York this week, nearly 50 designers and manufacturers of men’s wear brought their wares to the city. Among the brands showing at Project, MRket, Capsule, Liberty Fairs and Man under the tag line “Brits in New York” were Alan Paine, Austin Reed, Barbour, Edward Green, Ettinger, John Smedley, French Connection, Trickers, Derek Rose, Ted Baker London, Troubadour and Richard James.
Paul Alger, director of international business development for the U.K. Fashion & Textile Association, said, “If Brexit happens, we need to make sure we replace the business we’ll lose in continental Europe with other markets. And the U.S. is tops on that list.”
As a result, the UKFT provides grants of 1,200 pounds for brands to show internationally up to six times.
In addition to the U.S., the grants are available to manufacturers showing at Pitti Uomo in Florence, where Alger said 100 U.K. brands were represented at the latest edition in June, as well as at shows in Paris; Lyon, France; Shanghai, and Berlin.

Stop Asking Brands To Give You Free Stuff For Retweets

Back in my day, we used to have to call a 1-800 number, wait 20 minutes on hold for an uninterested operator, and then demand to speak with a manager if we had any hope of getting free stuff in the mail.

These days, there’s a jovial marketing team of millennials behind your favorite brand on Twitter, just waiting for an opportunity to slide into your DMs and give you freebies.

But there’s a new Twitter trend that’s even more annoying than those folks who make it their business to complain until they get a free meal or suite or Uber ride.

Now people are sending direct messages to brands asking how many retweets they’d need to get a super expensive product for free, and brands are responding with ridiculous, unattainable numbers ― often demanding retweets in the millions; way more retweets than any one post has ever received.

Some of these campaigns are getting hundreds of thousands, if not millions of retweets, giving free advertising to brands while giving next to nothing ― except maybe 15 seconds on The Internet’s Grand Stage ― to the consumers.

The whole thing was real cute when it first went viral.

A guy named Carter Wilkerson asked Wendy’s how many retweets it would take to get free chicken nuggets for a year. Wendy’s responded a minute later with “18 million,” and the internet went crazy. To his credit, Wilkerson has 2.9 million retweets as of this writing, but he hasn’t even reached Ellen DeGeneres’ record of 3.3 million retweets, and he’d need about 5 percent of the entire Twitterverse on his side to reach the 18 million goal.

Wilkerson isn’t even drunk on his newfound power. He’s selling T-shirts emblazoned with the now infamous hashtag #NuggsForCarter, and says the proceeds will go toward adoption services in the U.S. 

It all goes downhill from there. The Twitter user embedded above gave Mercedes-Benz more than 248,000 retweets worth of free advertising. Then you’ve got smaller campaigns like this one, between a user looking for free wings and Hooter’s:

Brand analysts say there might be more behind-the-scenes work at play with this new advertising scheme. 

“It’s sort of a smarter story from the influencer’s side,” Melissa Gonzalez, a retail and market analyst based in New York, told HuffPost. “People are looking to get that virality, so they’re gonna post a picture of that direct message hoping that it gets picked up and makes people follow them more.”

Gonzalez also noted that it’s nigh impossible to tell whether some of these brands might be working with Twitter users or other influencers to sell a product. Regardless, it’s hard to establish the value of a retweet to a company, but you can’t imagine that Wendy’s spent many employee hours coming up with one tweet that said, “18 million.”

Asking brands for free stuff in exchange for retweets doesn’t often work out, but sometimes the attempts are just hilarious (the Smash Mouth example especially):

Even HuffPost’s own Igor Bobic fell victim to the trend, though we’ll give him a pass because the man just wants his salad back on the menu:

Everyone else, just stop. Your favorite brands are more savvy than ever before online, and they’re feeding off your followers.

But now that we’re here, hey United, how many retweets for a scorpion to drop down and sting me mid-flight? Oh, wait…

Brands Bet on Active Underwear

When it comes to men’s underwear these days, it’s all about performance.
Along with a surge of start-ups including Related Garments, MeUndies and Nice Laundry, which are changing the way men purchase underwear and socks via subscription services and “build your own box” purchasing options, the active category is offering underwear brands a means for growth.
According to Marshal Cohen, the chief industry analyst for The NPD Group Inc., sales in the underwear category, which he said is a $ 2.8 billion business in the U.S., are down by 2 percent from last year. But the active underwear category, which makes up 20 percent of the market, is advancing quickly.
“The performance styles are saving the business,” said Cohen. “If you don’t have an active component within your underwear business, you are going to be hard-pressed to find growth.”
Cohen said sales are down because the consumer has shifted from purchasing underwear when they want it to only buying it when they need it — in other words, when those briefs or boxers are no longer wearable. And the active category is expanding because the active and ath-leisure apparel trends, which have slimmer silhouettes, necessitate new, performance-focused styles.

Tailored Brands Names Bruce Thorn President

Douglas Ewert has relinquished the president’s role at Tailored Brands Inc. to Bruce Thorn.
Thorn, formerly executive vice president and chief operating officer, will report to Ewert, who continues as chief executive officer.
“Bruce has been instrumental in driving Tailored Brands’ operational excellence initiatives through a period of tremendous change for our company,” said Ewert. “Under his stewardship, we right-sized our store base, optimized our supply chain and cost structure and strengthened our omnichannel capabilities. We look forward to his ongoing leadership as we continue to innovate the men’s specialty store experience at Tailored Brands.”
Thorn joined the company in June of 2015 and has been overseeing the supply chain, store operations, information technology, strategic planning, omnichannel initiatives and human resources, among other areas. He will continue to serve on the company’s executive committee.
Prior to joining the men’s wear retailer, Thorn was executive vice president of store operations, services and supply chain for PetSmart Inc. He has also worked for Gap Inc., Cintas Corp., Lesco Inc. and the U.S. Army.
Earlier this month, Tailored Brands reported earnings in 2016 of $ 25 million, or 51 cents a diluted share, up from losses of $ 1 billion a year earlier. Tailored Brands’ total operating income for the year came in at $ 132.8

Tailored Brands Results Hurt by Failing Macy’s Partnership

The marriage between Macy’s and Tailored Brands is on the rocks.
At the same time that it reported sales declines for fiscal 2016 and warned of another tough year ahead, Tailored Brands revealed that its tuxedo rental initiative at Macy’s Inc. has failed to perform up to expectations.
Wall Street was quick to punish the company, pushing its stock down $ 7.53, or 32 percent, Thursday to close at $ 15.84 on the New York Stock Exchange.
In mid-2015, the men’s wear retailer inked a deal with Macy’s to open tuxedo rental shops inside 300 stores. By the end of 2016, Tailored Brands had opened 170 shops.
However, during a conference call with analysts, Douglas Ewert, chief executive officer of Tailored Brands, said: “The results we’ve seen thus far have been disappointing. We anticipated start-up losses of $ 10 million during 2016, which grew to $ 14 million, due in part to most of our stores missing the bulk of the wedding season.

Bombas Partners With Authentic Brands to Launch Muhammad Ali-Inspired Socks

SOCK IT TO HIM: The sock maker Bombas and Authentic Brands Group, the owner of Muhammad Ali Enterprises, have linked up for a multiyear partnership to market the Muhammad Ali brand.
The prized athlete, activist and humanitarian died last summer at the age of 74.
Built on the policy that one pair of socks is donated to an underserved person for every pair purchased, Bombas has donated more than two million pairs of socks to date across the U.S. Cofounder David Heath said, “Muhammad Ali is not only an icon for his athleticism, but also for his charitable efforts. His devotion, perseverance and generosity have served as longtime inspiration for us, and we are proud to introduce a partnership that celebrates his greatness, both in the ring and in the community.”
The former heavyweight champion was also dogged about activism. He helped expedite the delivery of medical supplies to an embargoed Cuba, provided more numerous meals to the world’s impoverished and met with Saddam Hussein in 1990 to help secure the release of 15 U.S. hostages from Iraq.
The Muhammad Ali x Bombas collection will draw inspiration from iconic quotes, images and the personal style of “The Greatest of All Time.” The launch will be supported

Accessories Brands Update the Classics

MILAN — Accessories brands here emphasized craftsmanship, innovative treatments and embellishments with eye-catching details and colors, while staying true to their history and tradition. Comfort was a priority, as was exclusivity and luxurious materials.
Tod’s carefully crafted loafers were accented with geometric leather details and stitching in contrasting colors, such as a bright orange, which revved up the timeless design.
Santoni accented double monk-strap styles with fur and also introduced its first shearling bag.
In a clash between sartorial English dressing and punk rebellion, Jimmy Choo’s Sandra Choi jazzed up sneaker-shoe hybrids, edged with silvery or star-shaped studs.
Crystals in different shapes and sizes lit up Giuseppe Zanotti’s black evening slip-on, and rich brocade patterns with Twenties-inspired embellished elegant loafers.
Marking its 80th anniversary and presented in a pop-up store concept by Snarkitecture, Valextra presented an all-white collection, with furry details adding a touch of luxury.
Winking to the Fifties, Filippo Fiora and Filippo Cirulli at the Edhèn brand showed a collection of dress-up shoes that included a vintage looking double monk-strap loafer.
Church’s and Car Shoe, both controlled by the Prada Group, offered interesting variations of their staples — a strap-monk with ankle boot with a worn-in look, and a sneaker with a contrasting gommino sole in

Can Urban Streetwear Brands Make a Resurgence?

Don’t call it a comeback.
Before there was streetwear, there was urban streetwear, which consisted of brands that were a direct product of hip-hop culture.
Walk into any retailer today, whether it’s a big-box chain or a luxury department store, and there are traces, reinterpretations and sometimes replicas of urban streetwear pieces from brands such as Fubu, Phat Farm, Rocawear, Sean John and others that hit their peak during the late Nineties and early Aughts.
While brands including Guess, Nautica and Calvin Klein have capitalized on this Nineties trend with capsule collections targeting a younger consumer — Guess partnered with A$ AP Rocky and Nautica tapped 19-year-old rapper Lil Yachty  — urban streetwear brands have yet to do the same.

Lil Yachty in a piece from the capsule collection. 

In some cases, it’s intentional as former teen favorites have opted to grow along with their customers and stop chasing a fickle young consumer. But for others, the industry says it’s impossible to make a major comeback given the current marketplace.
“I don’t want to make clothes for Millennials,” said Russell Simmons, who founded Phat Farm in 1992. “That’s not my brand.”
Simmons is instead concentrating on his new Los Angeles yoga studio and active line, which are both called Tantris

Tailored Brands Returns to Profitability in Third Quarter

Investors applauded signs of turnaround at Tailored Brands’ Jos. A. Bank division, driving the company’s stock up 39.7 percent to $ 26.44 Thursday.
But just as the troublesome acquisition of Bank seems to be getting back on track, the firm’s other divisions are feeling the pain of the challenging retail environment.
The company raised guidance for the year and is expecting full-year 2016 adjusted earnings per share will hit $ 1.70 to $ 1.85 a diluted share, up from the previous range of $ 1.55 to $ 1.85.
The updated guidance reflects the company’s expectation for Jos. A. Bank’s comparable sales to be up mid- to high-single-digits and Men’s Wearhouse’s comparable sales to be down slightly in the fourth quarter.
Eric Beder of Wunderlich Securities reiterated his buy rating on the stock Thursday, raising the target price to $ 30 from $ 20 and increasing the earnings per share projections for fiscal year 2017 and fiscal year 2018 to $ 1.79, from $ 1.70 and $ 2.16 from $ 2.
Moody’s was similarly upbeat with analyst Mike Zuccaro saying: “As expected, Tailored Brands is making progress with the Jos. A. Bank turnaround, as well as its store rationalization initiatives and goal to achieve $ 50 million of cost savings this year.  With a focus on reducing debt, the company is

8 Fashion Brands That Are Dedicated to Saving the Planet

For Teen Vogue, by Emma Sarran Webster.

2016-04-26-1461683665-2292972-AmourVert2.jpg

As Earth Day approaches, we’re reminded that there are plenty of ways to show our love for the planet and contribute to its conservation–many of which involve our wardrobes. We can shop for eco-friendly clothes and accessories, we can don apparel that sends an Earth-loving message, and we can support companies that promote conservation causes year-round. These eight brands make it a mission to donate at least a portion of their proceeds to charities focused on environmental preservation.

1. Amour Vert

Not only are Amour Vert’s pieces 100% sustainable and made in the USA, but the company–which counts celebs like Emma Roberts, Olivia Palermo, and Blake Lively as fans–also works continually with the non-profit American Forests® as part of its “Buy a Tee Plant a T(r)ee” program. For each one of tee sold, Amour Vert plants a tree in America. In honor of Earth Day, Amour Vert is upping the ante: Post a picture of a tree on Instagram and tag #PlantATreeAV and @AmourVert, and they’ll plant another one.

2. Sevenly Ntl Park Foundation & Project Aware

Sevenly believes, over anything, that “People Matter,” and they put their money where their mouth. The company commissions “cause art” that celebrates its charitable partners, and features specific charities for its 7-day cause campaigns. But you can shop for pieces connected to a variety of causes on any day. For any items sold that are associated with a specific charity, Sevenly will donate 7% directly to that charity, and give 100% of its overall profits to its partners. Among those partners are the National Park Foundation and Project Aware, a non-profit focused on ocean conservation.

3. Proof Eyewear

Proof’s commitment to the environment is ingrained in its products: unique, eco-friendly wooden sunglasses. But the company is also committed to giving back to Mother Earth through its Do Good Program and Recycle Program. Sell your outdated or broken frames back to them, and they’ll donate them to someone in need. In the past, Proof aided with reforestation in Haiti and just last year, they donated $ 12,000 to The Nature Conservancy in Idaho.

4. WeWOOD

WeWOOD, which sells unique timepieces made mostly from scrap-wood, partners with both American Forests® and Trees For The Future to help keep our forests healthy and lush. The brand opened its doors in 2010 and planted 7,000 trees that year alone. Since 2011, they’ve planted more than 420,000 trees, and have a goal of planting 1 million trees by the year 2020.

2016-04-26-1461683694-2721593-SararoseOnOak.jpg

5. Sararose on Oak

Sararose on Oak offers a variety of clothes and accessories, all produced with a focus on protecting Mother Earth. Among its many charitable contributions, the company donates 10% of all its sales to the non-profit Ocean Conservancy, which works to protect Earth’s oceans, and the wildlife and communities that depend on them.

6. Fibre Athletics

Fibre Athletics is a certified Chicago Fair Trade company focused on “cultivat[ing] positive human development” and its environmental impact through fashion. As part of its mission, the brand contributes 1% of its profits to two charities, including The Eden Project, which restores forests in Haiti, Madagascar, Ethiopia, and Nepal.

7. Animal Behavior

Animal Behavior’s tag line is “Inspired By Nature To Protect Nature,” and it certainly lives up to the phrase. Each collection is inspired by a critically endangered species in an effort to raise awareness, and to protect animals and their natural habitats. The current (and first!) collection, Panthera, was influenced by the endangered Amur Leopard, and 5% of every purchase made goes to Panthera, a non-profit devoted to conserving wild cats as well as their ecosystems.

8. Oliberté

Oliberté is a sustainable brand that supports workers’ rights in sub-Saharan Africa. In 2013, its factory in Ethiopia became the world’s first Fair Trade Certified™ footwear manufacturing factory. In addition to its eco-friendly products and processes, the company is also part of the 1% For The Planet movement, and donates 1% its proceeds to the cause.

The New Crop: 5 Standout Men’s Wear Brands

GREG LAUREN
He has what can arguably be called the most famous last name in American fashion. But that doesn’t intimidate Greg Lauren.
“It’s a very powerful name and it’s impossible for me to meet anyone without them having preconceived notions, but it’s only part of me. It doesn’t define me,” he said.
His father is Jerry Lauren, the longtime executive vice president of men’s design for Ralph Lauren Corp., And, of course, Jerry’s brother is…Greg’s Uncle Ralph. So the provenance is impressive indeed.
But Greg Lauren is his own man, with design on his mind and art in his heart. And his apparel collection, which launched in 2011, is an extension and evolution of his paintings and paper sculptures.
“I never looked at it as making a jump into fashion,” he said. Instead, he paired the innate knowledge he acquired growing up in a fashion family with his artistic aesthetic.
What that translates into on the runway is a collection that uses repurposed fabrics such as vintage duffel bags, sailors’ uniforms and Army tents to create a military-inspired assortment of deconstructed suits, field jackets, trenchcoats and even a touch of tailored clothing.
Lauren grew up loving “vintage military everything….That led me to experiment and make a

Tmall Promotion Underscores Heightened Competition in China For U.S. Brands

DEALS, DEALS, DEALS: Tmall.com created an online frenzy with its latest blowout featuring more than 1,000 fashion brands.
The apparel promotion, held twice a year — one for spring and another for fall — this time around boasts a number of brands exclusive to Tmall.com, including Timberland, Decathlon and Zara.
The retailer sweetened the deal to customers with a same-day shipping option, aided by participating stores that will send items purchased online to a customer’s home.
It’s part of a larger strategy to bridge the online and off-line worlds, said a spokeswoman with Tmall.com parent Alibaba Group.
“That’s a very important strategy for Alibaba Group,” the spokeswoman said. “You have a lot of shoppers sometimes when they order online, they want to go in stores and get a sense of the look and feel of something.”
So customers shopping in-store, can make a purchase online with the scan of a QR code or schedule to have product seen in-store delivered to their homes. The option is available in more than 10 cities.
It’s another point of distinction for the online retailer as competition remains fierce to bring U.S. brands to the Chinese consumer.
The sale — running through Wednesday — comes on the heels of Alibaba’s announcement this

5 Brands Refreshing Men’s Denim

With the rise of the men’s ath-leisure trend — the NPD Group said U.S. sales of activewear were up 6 percent in the first quarter of this year — the common narrative is that denim is what’s taking the hit.
While that’s true to a certain extent — NPD also found sales within the men’s denim category were down by 2 percent from last year in the same time frame — it hasn’t stopped brands from entering the market.
“It’s never really a good time to launch a denim brand, but we just felt like consumers are always looking for something new,” said Casey Egan, who cofounded Deconstructed Indigo Garments, a men’s and women’s denim line, in 2014. “No matter what trend comes through, denim will always have a place. We just want to challenge people to think differently about the way they wear it.”
Egan’s line joins four other men’s denim brands that are hoping to refresh the category by offering interesting washes, special details and new silhouettes that move beyond the skinny jean.
 
RON HERMAN
Ron Herman, who owns Ron Herman stores in California and Japan, admits the denim category is crowded.
“Of course the market is saturated, but there’s always room for good product,” he

How Men’s Wear Brands Stay Relevant

In three years, Brooks Brothers will turn 200. Paul Stuart opened its doors for the first time in 1938. The first incarnation of what is now the Mitchells Family of Stores made its debut in Westport, Conn., in 1958.
But the longevity of these retailers is more the exception than the rule.
For decades, stores like these were the backbone of the men’s industry. But as time passed and the country changed radically, a large number of specialty retailers were unable to survive and are now just a footnote in the industry’s history. The stores that have survived and prospered attribute their endurance to their ability to evolve — without losing sight of their history.
“Everything has to move forward — rust will kill you,” said Tom Mastronardi, chief marketing officer for Paul Stuart.
Arnold Aronson, managing director of retail strategies for Kurt Salmon Associates, agrees: “On a macro level, it has certainly helped that the men’s business has been on one of the more healthy and growing retail categories as men have become more fashion-conscious and eclectic in both their business and casual attire,” he said. “But the major reason that has allowed some, not all, of the venerable men’s retailers to survive

8 Amazing New Handbag Brands That Will Inspire You to Go Shopping Now

street-style-bags

If there’s one thing we learned from the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag phenomenon, it’s that when you find a bag you love, buy it immediately or risk being waitlisted.

So whether you’re still on the waitlist for a Mansur Gavriel bag or are simply on the hunt for a terrific everyday handbag, scope out these styles from eight new brands we’re beyond excited about.

gunas-handbag

The Brand: Gunas New York

The “It” Bag: The Flamingo satchel, $ 165
Why We Love It: This vegan bags hits all the high notes: Great color, silhouette, lots of details and it’s affordable.

mandy-chang-handbag

The Brand: Mandy Chang Design Studio

The “It” Bag: The Pushing The Envelope tote, $ 480
Why We Love It: It’s no surprise that this bag earned the top prize at the Independent Handbag Awards earlier this month. It’s angular, but graceful at the same time. It’s an ideal work bag.

little-liffner-bag

The Brand: Little Liffner
The “It” Bag: The Saddle Up bag, $ 279
Why We Love It: Swedish designer Paulina Liffner delivers luxurious elements, such lizard embossing and custom hardware, at a fair price. This saddle bag’s got them all.

vaska-handbag

The Brand: Vaska Bags
The “It” Bag: Sini, $ 345 (converted from euros at current exchange rates)
Why We Love It: The silver foil stamp, smooth periwinkle leather and perfect proportions are all so right now. It’s minimalism at its finest!

mary-lai-handbag

The Brand: Mary Lai

The “It” Bag: The Knox Backpack, $ 458
Why We Love It: The backpack trend is still going strong, but it’s a slippery slope from downtown cool to downright childish. This one has the look of a shopper with those oh-so-convenient straps that make multitasking that much easier.

la-contrie-handbag-1

The Brand: La Contrie

The “It” Bag: Rohan, $ 805 (converted from the euro at current exchange rates)
Why We Love It: While this is the priciest of the lot, take note that designer Edwina de Charette hand-makes each bag in the color and cord combinations of your choosing. And the quality is terrific; you’ll wear this one for years to come.

ok-autumn-bag

The Brand: OK Autumn
The “It” Bag: Standard Circle bag, $ 350
Why We Love It: London-based designers Hyung-ok Park and Autumn Gaeul Ryu are all about geometry and architecture. This bucket-duffel hybrid is based is based on a circle and folds flat. Perfect for travel!

kara-bag

The Brand: Kara

The “It” Bag: Large Stowaway Bag, $ 390
Why We Love It: If you love the look of a minimal bag, but prefer something unstructured (a.k.a. the bag you can stuff everything but the kitchen sink into), this is your best bet. Plus, the zip closure is ideal when you’re wearing it cross body, so no one can tell that you’ve packed your gym clothes among other unmentionables in there. Don’t worry, we won’t tell either.

Speaking of stuffing your bag, here’s the ideal way to stuff your carry on, according to the Man Repeller:

There Are More Than 100 New Brands at Forever 21: Are You Missing Out?

Get ready to shop Forever 21 in a whole new way. You may know about the retail empire’s in-house lines—like separates-driven Love 21 and plus size-friendly Forever 21+—but did you know that the store also sells other non-Forever 21 brands exclusively on its website? Check out what we found in Forever 21’s Branded Shop.

forever21

Blessed Are the Meek Open-Knit Midi Dress, $ 180, forever21.com

According to a brand spokesperson, the Forever 21 shop-in-shop experience launched in November 2014 (quietly, we might add) with approximately 20 non-Forever 21 labels. To date, there are currently more than 100—and more to follow. They range from more well-known names such as Dolce Vita, Ban.do, and Happy Socks, to up-and-coming brands like Amber Sceats, Rise of Dawn, and Clashist.

While Forever 21 isn’t the first brand to make retail partnerships work—J.Crew’s In Good Company collective started back in 2007 and Target launched a limited partnership with brands called The Shops at Target in 2012—it is interesting to see the company diversify its offerings past what we’ve known for almost 20 years.

Shop our picks from the Branded Shop below then let us know: Are you excited for Forever 21’s new direction?

Sunrise Brands Sells Superdry License to SuperGroup Plc.

Sunrise Brands has sold its North American license for Superdry to Superdry’s parent company, SuperGroup Plc. Terms were not disclosed.
The deal includes the exclusive rights to distribute Superdry products in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. It follows on the heels of SuperGroup’s acquisition of its Scandinavian, Spanish and German licensees over the last 18 months.
Sunrise Brands acquired the Superdry North American license in 2008 and has opened 15 stores around the U.S., including New York, Miami, San Francisco and Los Angeles. A store is also slated for Las Vegas.
Superdry also sells wholesale at Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s and Hudson’s Bay.
“We are proud to have spearheaded the launch of the Superdry brand in North America over these past seven years,” said Gerard Guez, founder and chief executive officer of SDUSA, LLC. “As we hand the reins back to SuperGroup, I remain extremely bullish on Superdry’s future in North America and know it is in good hands. This is an important step in SuperGroup’s long-term vision of bringing the Superdry brand back under one roof, and I couldn’t be happier for the company and its shareholders.”

Fashion Brands Turning Out for Coachella

COACHELLA’S FASHION PLAYLIST: At this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which starts Weekend One on April 10, there’s been a turnover among some of the major fashion companies that have used the three-day weekend as one long branding showcase. Guess and Lacoste have exited the scene this year, while Pandora jewelry is arriving at the Parker Palm Springs resort with the “Pandora Jewelry Fashion Experience,” four runway shows over three days featuring Siwy Denim, Plenty by Tracy Reese, Nanette Lepore and Whit. The designers, who are creating limited edition Pandora pieces to be worn with their collections, most of which will be shoppable right from the runway, will be on hand for meet-and-greets with the invite-only crowd.
H&M, a six-year sponsor of the festival, will have a pop-up shop/experiential tent for its H&M Loves Coachella collection at the Indio, Calif., fairgrounds, but is skipping a big off-site bash this year in favor of a more intimate gathering at the Parker on Friday evening.
Saturday, April 11, will be a day of dueling fashion events in Palm Springs. The Council of Fashion Designers of America will partner with PopSugar Inc. and guest Mara Hoffman for a brunch to celebrate the April
