Antonio Marras Collaborates With Zanichelli on Artistic Project

ARTISTIC DICTIONARY: In keeping with its effort aimed at raising awareness on the importance of preserving and cultivating the proper use of a language, Zanichelli, the historic publisher of the Italian dictionary, has collaborated with Antonio Marras on a special project.
In particular, the Sardinian visionary designer and artist transformed 16 copies of the Zingarelli dictionary into 16 works of art, which were unveiled on Wednesday with a press conference at the Circolo Marras in Milan.
“When Zanichelli sent me about 30 copies of the dictionary I started looking at them. They were so clean and perfect that I was almost intimidated by them. I really couldn’t understand how to approach this work,” the designer said. “Then I realized that the starting point should have been a sense of pain, desperation, loss…so I kicked off the process.”

Taking inspiration from iconic women, including dance choreographer Pina Bausch, naturalist Eva Mameli Calvino and Nobel Prize-winner writer Grazia Deledda, Marras created 16 sculptures dedicated to them.
“Since art never comes from happiness, but from torment, who knows torment better than women?,” said art critic Francesca Alfano Miglietti, explaining Marras’ inspiration.
Marras manipulated the volumes with drawings, collages, cuts, as well as applications of a wide

W Hotels Collaborates With Gigi Burris

PUT A LID ON IT: In the latest installment of the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s collaboration with the W Hotels, Gigi Burris has whipped up three Panama hats.
With a new hotel in Panama City, the company has turned to the New York designer to create a few toppers inspired by her travels. Made of naturally woven straw, the hats come in “The Canal,” a flat-brimmed fedora trimmed with a papaya-colored cotton grosgrain ribbon; “The Quera,” a wide flat brimmed hat with a heart-shaped crown, and “The Mangrove,” a safari-style short brim style with a crème-colored grosgrain ribbon and a peacock feather. Victoria’s Secret model Jasmine Tookes was among the first to sport one a few weeks back and she showed it off to her Instagram followers. Shoppers who don’t plan to fly to Panama City any time soon, can find the three styles online via the W Store. Retails prices range from $ 395 to $ 495.
The newly minted Duchess of Sussex has helped to fuel the trend by being photographed in one at various events this summer. At Wimbledon last month, she carried her Madewell version in the Royal Box with the Duchess of Cambridge. Even North Korean leader

Chinatown Market Collaborates With Good Charlotte

Chinatown Market has jumped into the musician merchandise category.
The Los Angeles-based streetwear brand also runs a consulting agency and has done merchandise work for Warner Music Group and Live Nation, but this is the first time it is lending the Chinatown Market name and logo to product.
Mike Cherman, founder of Chinatown Market, said he was good friends with Josh Madden, brother to Good Charlotte’s Joel and Benji Madden, and after finding out Joel was a fan of the brand, they decided to team up.
“Growing up I was a fan of Good Charlotte,” Cherman said. “And eventually we were at a dinner and just said we have to do this. It was good to work on something this scale, and it’s something to be said for Good Charlotte. They did a BAPE collaboration and now we are reintroducing them on a whole different platform.”
The first drop from the collection includes a T-shirt, hoodie and stickers that retail in different packages ranging from $ 10 to $ 105. They are available to purchase on Good Charlotte’s web site. Good Charlotte will release its seventh studio album, “Generation Rx,” on Sept. 14 and will go on a North American tour this fall. Cherman said this will

CDLP Collaborates With Tom of Finland Foundation

CDLP is embarking on its second collaboration.
The Stockholm-based men’s underwear brand, which was founded in 2016 by Christian Larson and Andreas Palm, is working with the Tom of Finland Foundation on a capsule collection of underwear inspired by Touko Laaksonen, the artist, whose pseudonym is Tom of Finland, who created some of the most memorable imagery of gay contemporary culture. CDLP previously worked with Swedish film director Jonas Åkerlund.
“On our side there was a strong respect for Tom of Finland and the Foundation from way before we even started CDLP. The honesty in Tom’s work has a deep story to be connected to,” said Palm, the chief executive officer at CDLP. “A story of pure talent, but also the impact that Tom’s work has had on gay culture, equality, and freedom in general. That’s something that’s important to CDLP. Tom impacted a shift during his generation and is moving the needle still to this day.”
Palm said they designed underwear based on pieces that Laaksonen designed in his work that were never produced. They’ve produced the underwear, which will retail from $ 60 to $ 85, with lyocell, a biodegradable fiber. The collection, which will be out in late September, will be packaged

Margherita Missoni Amos Collaborates With Mott50 for Sun-Protective Swimwear

IN THE SWIM: Margherita Missoni Amos has teamed with the sun protective apparel brand Mott50 for women’s and children’s swimwear.
The resort capsule collection will launch in October with an assortment of bold-colored options. In tandem with Mott50’s chief executive officer and founder Anne Reilly, Missoni has dreamed up performance swimwear with retro elements such as zippered necklines, flounced skirts, polo collars and color-blocking.
Reached in Europe on a family vacation, Missoni said one challenge of designing this sun-shielding collection was the need for ample coverage on the arms and neckline. “Performance-oriented sun-protected swimwear is normally very sports-driven from a style perspective. It’s very sporty and contemporary. What I tried to do was to make it more retro,” she said. “Back in the day they used to cover themselves up more so I picked up some of the aspects of that and mixed them with contemporary fabrics and techniques,” adding that the references span from the Forties through the Seventies.
While the average T-shirt provides 5 UPF, Mott50 apparel claims to have 50+ UPF to fend off UVA and UVB without harmful toxins that are used in certain sun lotions. The company aims to curtail the estimated 50 million people who are treated

Married to the Mob Collaborates With Lugz

When Leah McSweeney, founder of Married to the Mob, was around 20 years old, she assisted a stylist on set for the Funkmaster Flex’s Lugz shoot.
Now, 15 years later, she’s working with the brand on her own footwear.
“Lugz holds a special place in my heart,” McSweeney said. “This is one of those moments where everything comes full circle and you step back and say ‘Damn, I created something kind of awesome with MTTM.’”
McSweeney has decorated a black Lugz boot with Married to the Mob’s signature lips graphic and a floral pattern. The boot, which features a white sole, is being sold at select Zumiez stores and on its e-commerce site. It retails for $ 79.95.
This collaboration comes after McSweeney worked with K-Swiss on a limited-edition capsule collection that debuted last year at ComplexCon in Long Beach, Calif. The campaign featured Leikeli47, a musician from New York who is known for wearing a mask.
For this campaign, McSweeney tapped designer Crystal Shankab.
According to McSweeney, things are going well for her brand and she has a couple of collaborations in the pipeline for 2018, including a major one slated to drop in November.

Craig Green Collaborates With Grenson on Footwear Range, Plans to Expand Into Accessories

LONDON — Craig Green has teamed with the British footwear brand Grenson on a capsule range as he prepares to stride fully into the accessories space later this year.
“The basis of the new collection is molding and creating volume and excess within garments,” Green said. The designer’s theme of molding also informed his footwear design as he aimed to create shoes from metal.
“When we started working on the shoes with Grenson, it was almost the idea of attempting to make the shoes look like toy soldier shoes,” Green said.
Green wasn’t given a brief and had creative freedom to design. He said he enjoyed adding his own twist to the brand’s classic style.
“It was as if you took them out of a mold and you are left with the central ridge on the toe-line — that kind of idea,” Green said. He said he added excess fold flaps to cover the laces, which resulted in a protective and workwear aesthetic that suited the brand’s ethos. Most of his collections are based around, uniform, workwear and functionality.
Green had dabbled in shoe design in the past. As a student, he created an eight-style range for Bally of Switzerland and he also collaborated with

Maison Margiela Collaborates With Mackintosh on Trenchcoats

ALL WHITE: Maison Margiela’s iconic white lab coat is ready to hit the streets.
The Paris-based fashion house has collaborated with outerwear maker Mackintosh to create two exclusive trenchcoat designs for its spring 2018 men’s wear collection, including a white version featuring signature details such as white horn buttons and four stitches on the back.
Martin Margiela settled on the white lab coat as a staff uniform shortly after founding the maison in 1988, as part of the brand’s collective identity. It is worn by everyone from artistic director John Galliano to the house’s interns.
The second design is inspired by the Mackintosh archives, with the collar and cuffs reworked using the so-called décortiqué process that Galliano explored in his spring Artisanal collection.

The waterproof coats are made from rubberized fabrics, with all seams taped and glued to create a seamless effect. The two numbered limited-edition coats will be available from December in Maison Margiela boutiques, Mackintosh flagships and selected multibrand stores.

The men’s retail company has worked with Chris Paul, Robert Geller, Mark McNairy and Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi, and now has teamed with Wooster to create a capsule collection that’s available exclusively on Five Four’s e-commerce site and subscription service.
The collection was inspired by time Wooster spent in Los Angeles. He’s designed reversible jackets with reflective fabric, leopard print sweaters, plaid bomber jackets and frayed jeans.
“We’ve taken really key, basic items that I think are essential to every man’s wardrobe, like striped oxford cloth shirts for instance, and given them a slight twist,” Wooster said. “The hope is that when a guy puts this on, he stops and thinks, ‘Hey, someone really thought about this for me.’”
Andres Izquieta, co-chief executive officer and creative director of Five Four, said he’s been following Wooster for years and thought the Five Four customer would appreciate his aesthetic.

ALL DRESSED UP: Ready to roll out a limited edition dress for Dress Barn that will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Carmen Marc Valvo is considering another collaboration.
Hoping to work with Dress Barn on a diffusion line, Valvo said, “We’re having that conversation. We played with the idea a little bit in the past. As in retail, there’s a lot of change with presidents and senior management. So the conversation is in the works and hopefully something can come from it. It’s exciting because it presents a new challenge.”
Valvo is counting on high-profile friends like Queen Latifah and Hilaria Baldwin, Vanessa Williams and Katie Couric to wear and post images of his BCRF dress. After designing a limited edition BCRF dress for Dress Barn last year, the designer sent one to a Miss Universe winner, who tweeted an image of the dress and in doing helped Valvo reach his goal of 500,000-plus social media impressions. “We’re really expanding our horizons this year.

Mike B., whose real name is Mike Barnett, has teamed with Cockpit USA, the heritage outerwear brand.
For Barnett, a celebrity stylist whose client list includes A$ AP Ferg, Sean Combs, the Migos and Swizz Beatz, this partnership is a full-circle moment.
He met Jacky Clyman, the owner of Cockpit USA, in the Nineties via fax and e-mail while working on The Bad Boy Entertainment leather jackets that Avirex, which was once owned by Cockpit USA, produced. They met again in New York and Barnett pitched his brand concept to Clyman, who obliged.
“During the Nineties, Avirex and Cockpit helped hip-hop culture in terms of outerwear. If you follow hip-hop, there are different eras of leather jackets. In the late 2000s, it was all about having a good Avirex or Cockpit bomber.”
Barnett has worked with the Cockpit design team to create a collection of outerwear, which includes a G1 Top Gun bomber with a removable collar, a shearling coat and a longer shearling style with a belt. The coats, which retail from $ 900 to $ 2,100, are all black with Cockpit’s signature map lining. The capsule is available now on Cockpit’s e-commerce site and Mike B.’s site.

“Collaborations have been very popular for a long time, and we have done them in the past but never been that strategic in terms of what they can do for us as a business. This collaboration stretches what the brand stands for and what we can do design-wise,” said Andrea O’Donnell, president of Ugg.

M.I.A Collaborates With Astrid Andersen on Capsule Clothing Range

M.I.A. MERCH: The British singer-songwriter Mathangi Arulpragasam — better known by her stage name M.I.A. — has teamed with the Danish designer Astrid Andersen on a capsule clothing range that launches this week.
The collaboration came about after Arulpragasam requested some spring 2017 garments from Andersen, and the musician asked if they could work together in some way. She lauded Andersen’s merging of “function, sport, simplicity and futurism.”
“M.I.A’s message is strong and pure and her personality is strong-willed and determined. That’s rare to find and that’s what made her so incredible to work with,” said Andersen. “For this particular project, it all happened super fast. We have the same references, so it was natural to create pieces from my spring 2017 collection and use her colors and artwork.”
The designer, who was inspired by artwork from the musician’s latest album, “AIM,” used silhouettes from her spring 2017 show. She revamped them using light technical materials in black, coral and beige.
The collection made its debut at the Astrid Andersen flagship in Denmark to celebrate Copenhagen Fashion Week. The range consists of anoraks, T-shirts and track pants. Prices range from 50 pounds for a T-shirt to 120 pounds for an anorak. It will be

Sacai Collaborates With North Face

NORTH FACE TIME: Sacai‘s Chitose Abe, the Japanese designer known for splicing garments into robust hybrids, has collaborated with cold-weather outerwear company the North Face on a small range for women and men. Styles include an oversize parka based on one of Sacai’s best-selling designs, and a spin on the MA-1 bomber jacket fused with North Face features. They’ll be unveiled during Sacai’s fall 2017 men’s show on Saturday, with the full collection due to hit a handful of retailers in September, including Colette in Paris and Dover Street Market in London. The project falls under the North Face’s new premium concept, The North Face Urban Exploration, which aims to up the fashion quotient of its utility gear.
Statement outerwear — trenches, biker jackets, shearlings and puffers — have become a signature of Sacai, so the collaboration makes a lot of sense of that level. It also comes at a time when designer brands are thirsty to co-opt the aura of everyday authenticity and natural street cred that belongs to brands with loyal sport followings, such as the North Face and Supreme, with which Louis Vuitton revealed its high profile collaboration earlier this week in Paris.

Kareem “Biggs” Burke continues to pull from his roots for his apparel endeavors.
The Roc-A-Fella records cofounder, who owns the denim brand Fourth of November, has teamed with the New York Knicks on a limited-edition capsule collection in celebration of the basketball team’s 70th anniversary.
“As a real New Yorker it’s an absolute honor to collaborate with the Knicks,” said Burke.
The collection includes a classic varsity jacket made of Melton wool and lambskin, and a snapback. Both feature the Fourth of November logo along with ’70 and ’73, which indicate the years the Knicks won an NBA Championship. The jacket, which retails for $ 350, and the snapback, which retails for $ 46, will be sold exclusively at the Madison Square Garden team store. Only 70 pieces of each style will be produced.
When working with Roc-A-Fella, which was acquired by Def Jam in 2004, Burke helped grow Rocawear, the label’s streetwear brand, into an almost $ 700 million business, and although he had no plans of reentering the fashion business, when a childhood friend introduced him to Fourth of November, which was founded by Carlos Rodriguez, he joined the team to help them grow the company. The line, which consists of denim and varsity jackets,

Weiland and Foote became friends more than 10 years ago. Foote said, “Timo’s designs have always inspired me. I love how he plays with masculine silhouettes and concepts, and applies them to women’s wear.”
Having worked in fashion illustration, Foote said he plans to collaborate with other designers going forward. His drawings can be found in Poppy King’s book “The A to Z of Lipstick,” which was published earlier this month. Foote said, ”I love the idea of pairing up a fashion designer and their vision with ours, the combination of ideas really sparks something unique.”
Weiland’s mother, Alison, has been part of his company’s story from the beginning. The designer said it was inspiring to work side-by-side with another mother-son team. “Keeping

The Brooklyn-based men’s wear line, which is known for its use of Japanese fabrics, has created a capsule collection for Toms that’s available today.
“We started working with Toms on this project over a year ago and the original idea was to create a collection of our favorite Toms footwear silhouettes in our signature Japanese fabrics,” said Emil Corsillo, cofounder of The Hill-Side. “This idea quickly expanded to include kids’ shoes in the same fabrics, The Hill-Side accessories in an exclusive printed fabric, and three styles of Toms eyewear.”
The footwear assortment features three of Toms signature silhouettes that are made in The Hill-Side’s Japanese fabrics including a lightweight Indigo Sashiko, navy cotton herringbone tweed and a gray cotton herringbone tweed.
The eyewear line includes three styles that feature hand-finished tortoiseshell acetate frames with a fabric inlay made from The Hill-Side’s custom big halftone floral print.

DiFerdinando Collaborates with Kids of Ronald McDonald House for a Cause

Handbag designer Danielle DiFerdinando participated in some child’s play but for a serious cause — the Ronald McDonald House. At a party she hosted for the children and mothers at the Ronald McDonald House on Manhattan’s Upper East Side last February, “We had the kids participate in a contest to sketch a tote bag based on what made them happy ­— anything from animals, nature, superheroes, or love,” recalled DiFerdinando. “We combined the sketches from the children and came up with a tote design. The kids were so happy to see their designs come to life.”
The tote, now available on macys.com and danielle-nicole.com, retails for $ 70. A percentage of the sales will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House New York, which provides a temporary “home-away-from-home” for pediatric cancer patients and their families. “It makes you stop and think what is really important in life — health and family,” said DiFerdinando, designer of the Danielle Nicole handbag line and long-time volunteer at Ronald McDonald House.
