Yves Salomon Builds Accessories Business

French furrier Yves Salomon looks to take its business a step further. To offer clients a full gamut of lifestyle purchases, the brand will introduce accessories.
Footwear and bags, as well as boots produced in collaboration with Moon Boots and hats made in partnership with Maison Michel, are to be introduced for fall.
“We had soft accessories business, a little scarf range, but had never put any big effort into accessories because we were too concentrated on expanding the main line. We have been expanding a lot of our retail stores in the last few years and now we’d like our woman to be a complete woman with accessories too,” said the brand’s general manager, Thomas Salomon.
Rather than proclaim the accessories launch as a strategic new source of revenue, Salomon said: “There is no specific strategy about accessories; we are expanding the category to answer our customer’s request for a complete wardrobe. We wanted to use the collaboration with Moon Boot as a springboard to promote the rollout of our own footwear going forward, along with new hats, bags and other fur accessories.”
Salomon said that the accessories category would ideally comprise 20 percent of the brand’s general sales within three to five

Neil Barrett Builds His Block

MILAN — “A new chapter in my company’s story.” 
That’s how Neil Barrett described the developments at his namesake brand, which recently set up shop in a new headquarters on Milan’s Via Ceresio. The 538,200-square-foot building was part of a former electrical plant and currently houses the Dsquared2 offices with the Ceresio 7 restaurant and gym as well.
“Finally we’re able to house all the operations under one roof,” Barrett said. “I used to be in seven different buildings before and so we would always get wet during the winter moving from one appointment to the other. It kept us quite real.” 
That down-to-earth attitude is the spirit that has always guided the designer’s decisions — a low-key, steady-as-he-goes approach to growth that has enabled him to remain independent while generating revenues of more than 90 million euros in 2016.

“It’s such a pleasure to have such a big space that’s been designed specifically for every single operation in the building. It’s really tailor-made,” said Barrett.

Designed by Milanese architecture firm Storage Associati, the building, which features a faded black facade punctuated by myriad windows on both the front and the back, perfectly reflects the sleek, minimal aesthetic of the brand with its graphic combination of concrete and glass. 
“Everything revolves around this central void. The concept that I’ve always dreamed

Blake Shelton Says Walking Into a Room with Girlfriend Gwen Stefani ‘Builds Your Ego Up’

It’s a round of Voice musical chairs!

Alicia Keys is leaving NBC’s hit singing competition show as a judge next season, and while Blake Shelton is sad to see her go, it sounds like the country star doesn’t believe it’s goodbye forever.

“I’ve looked ahead,” said Shelton during an interview with ET on Monday. “This is like those Harry Potter movies. Those characters that you think are gone, then they come back. Alicia … I’ve already looked ahead on the script, and they have her coming back.”

“Seeing as I’m his main competition, I’m sure he’s happy to see me go,” added Keys, 36. “So he doesn’t have to feel such a stress and pressure every time he works with me.”

Shelton also sounded off on his girlfriend Gwen Stefani exiting the show next season (Jennifer Hudson and Miley Cyrus are taking a turn in the red chairs instead).

Just “being in the vicinity of her is unbelievable,” gushed Shelton, who had Stefani by his side Sunday night while he picked up the top country artist award at the Billboard Music Awards. “Oh my God, at some point, it kinda builds your ego up when you walk into a room with Gwen. But also it’s a crashing blow to your ego when you realize all the cheers and people shouting at ya. You realize it’s not you, it’s her! But it’s still exciting at the same time.”

Shelton jokingly confessed he’s relieved Cyrus and his pal Kelly Clarkson — who’s joining the show in 2018 — are on different seasons.

“I can tell you that I used to think Miley Cyrus would be the person that talks the most, ever in the history of this show,” he said. “Now that they brought in Kelly Clarkson … oh my God. Oh my God. Thank God they are at least on different seasons because my ears would fall off my head. There would be no oxygen left in the room. Neither one of them can stop talking.”

Forall Builds Management

MILAN — Forall SpA is beefing up its executive ranks. Maurizio Beffa was appointed chief commercial officer of the Italian men’s wear group, while Bryan La Vine was tapped as managing director of Forall USA.
Beffa is in charge of overseeing the wholesale and retail divisions of the Pal Zileri brand and to expand that business globally. Most recently, Beffa held strategic commercial retail and wholesale posts at Belstaff and Tod’s Group.
La Vine is joining Forall’s New York subsidiary from Bergdorf Goodman to help boost the U.S. market, which is considered key for the growth of the company. He reports to Beffa.
Before Bergdorf Goodman, La Vine was a top-level executive at Amazon.com and Barneys New York.
The two appointments reflect a new path charted by Forall owner Mayhoola Group to develop its business around the world. Last October, Giovanni Mannucci joined as chief executive officer from Boglioli, succeeding Paolo Roviera, who went to head Corneliani.
In July last year, Mayhoola took full control of Pal Zileri through the acquisition of 100 percent of parent company Forall Confezioni SpA, representing the fund’s commitment to expand the brand in the long-term.
The investment vehicle backed by a private investor group from Qatar first took a 65 percent

Alexander Stutterheim Builds an Unusual Kind of Luxury Brand in Sweden

In fashion, Sweden has fostered notable names such as Acne Studios, H&M and Nudie Jeans. According to Alexander Stutterheim, the cofounder of contemporary raincoat brand Stutterheim, the Scandinavian country has yet to give birth to a luxury label on par with Hermès and Margiela. He’s taken on the mission to rectify that, offering his hand-knit sweaters from his Stockholm apartment, where he has fulfilled custom orders with in-the-know shoppers, to boutiques for the first time next fall.
Slated to exhibit at Paris’ Man trade fair in January, John Sterner: Swedish Knitology is set to wholesale chunky fisherman sweaters knit by hand from ecological wool and introduce new styles, in Merino wool and cashmere, as well as accessories such as scarves, beanies, socks and gloves.
Made in a week by a grandmotherly knitter in the south of Sweden and numbered with a leather tag like a work of art, the fisherman sweater, dubbed Antidote, retails for $ 1,050. Stutterheim sees the possibility of growing the brand on the potential of the cashmere sweaters and the Merino knits, which sell for about $ 900 and $ 300, respectively. The accessories start at $ 30 for socks and fingerless gloves and go up to $ 80 for hats. Made by

Boyfriend Of The Year Builds An Entire Piece Of Furniture To Propose To His Girlfriend

One man just pulled off a proposal so romantic, it could make even the most hard-hearted person melt a little inside.

On October 9, Blake Bullinger surprised his girlfriend Carly Stene with a handmade jewelry armoire as a gift for their second anniversary. He filled the drawers with a bunch of her favorite things — a giant Rice Krispie Treat, granola bars, a pumpkin candle, brownie mix and Twix bars.

When she gets to the last drawer, Blake asks her to “dig around in there a little bit.” That’s when she finds the ring box.

“I was absolutely surprised!” Carly told The Huffington Post via email. “Blake is the most amazing man in the world and the thought of being with him forever brought on a flood of emotions — all happy ones, of course. When I saw the ring, I got butterflies in my stomach and, as you could tell from the video, I cried a lot! I was truly happy in that moment.”

And as if that wasn’t romantic enough, Blake uses his shirt to wipe away Carly’s post-proposal happy tears. Excuse us while we swoon.
