Ready to rock, again. Urban Outfitters and Betsey Johnson partner in exclusive revival of summer 1997 runway collection in a 10-piece ready-to-wear selection, launching online May 13.

On the latest collaboration with Urban Outfitters, designer Betsey Johnson said the collection represents a “direct reflection of my 1997 runway show,” with this collection of 10 dresses rivaling past collaborations with the brand in 2014 or 2015 by being “revived in a more simple and modern way.” Urban Outfitters’ core customer was born in the Nineties, according to Gabrielle Conforti, Urban Outfitters’ chief merchandising officer of women’s and home in a statement to WWD. “We’re excited to give them the opportunity to experience the iconic Betsey designs updated for today,” she said.
When asked of what emotion is captured in her 1997 collection, Johnson spoke of the blend in feminine whimsy and rebel rocker — appropriately rock ‘n’ roll and ruffle. Conforti added that the collaboration is filtered through Urban

Sterling Ruby: Pitti Uomo a ‘No Brainer’ to Debut Collection

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Los Angeles artist Sterling Ruby gave away little about the ready-to-wear label he’s set to launch in June during a breakfast for the upcoming Pitti Uomo save for one detail: the dark denim pair of jeans he was wearing from S.R. Studio. LA. CA., which he paired with a black hoodie.
The only other hint that’s been stated publicly in an announcement on the collection is it is to serve as a reinterpretation of American workwear.
The L.A. artist is a special guest of the trade show, presenting his first apparel collection — some 10 years in the making — at a June 13 event.
Ruby stood before media and other guests just ahead of breakfast being served.
“I’ve been interested in making clothes…for some time and most of it has been just kind of a private endeavor,” he said. “For the most part, it’s been something very internal. But over the last 10 years, I’ve started to understand the desire and the reasons why I was doing this to begin with, and I also started to work with people in the fashion industry, in the garment industry, from both owners of big luxury houses to the youngest designers.”

Ozwald Boateng to Debut First Women’s Collection in New York

NEW YORK CALLING: Savile Row tailor Ozwald Boateng will hit York on May 5 with an immersive fashion experience at the Apollo theater in Harlem, showcasing the brand’s first women’s collection.
The show will be a celebration of culture, diversity, music, history and fashion and mark the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance, “starting with a short film on Africanism, and guiding us into the future of artificial intelligence,” according to the company.
VIPs within sports and entertainment are expected to appear at the former Givenchy designer’s runway show, the brand added.
Boateng, whose parents immigrated to the U.K. in the Fifties, was the youngest designer of African descent to open a business on London’s Savile Row. He founded his company in 1995, and was part of a new bespoke movement that catapulted him to international recognition.
Known for his bright flashes of color and twist on classic British tailoring, his brand offers in-store bespoke services as well as RTW men’s wear and items such as ties, shirts and knitwear.

Byredo Toasts Collection During Paris Fashion Week

Ben Gorham brought together Byredo’s trendy community during Paris Fashion Week, from Off-White designer Virgil Abloh to Anja Rubik, Aymeline Valade and influencers Pernille Teisbaek and Caroline Daur.
The occasion was Gorham’s accessories collection for the label, which dabbles in beauty and leather goods.
“I’m based in Sweden, so this is the right occasion to bring everyone together and connect with our community,” said the designer.
But despite his cult following, Gorham is committed to going against the fashion current and taking it slow.
For fall, he presented a small, focused accessories collection where he reworked the brand’s popular Seema bag using embroideries and hand-painted techniques.

His inspiration was the art of bird-watching, which he was drawn to for its peaceful, community-based nature. He loosely translated this into bags in bright colors and hand-painted inkblots, that reflected the “perfect symmetry of birds.”
A black version featuring neon blue inkblots stood out.
“This style has quickly become our iconic bag, maybe because it has a very strong silhouette — without branding or without hard wear, it still became quickly recognizable. So I felt like I should keep exploring different iterations of this bag and use it as a canvas,” said Gorham. “I’m quite slow, but

Vita Fede Unveils Eyewear Collection

Jewelry brand Vita Fede is expanding its purview, now adding eyewear to its lineup.
The brand has just launched its first eyewear collection — with sculptural, metal-accented sunglasses priced from $ 295 to $ 390.
The line was developed in Japan, with Vita Fede founder and designer Cynthia Sakai approaching the range as if it were jewelry for the face.
“Expanding Vita Fede into the eyewear category was a very natural extension of the jewelry line. I view jewelry as any beautiful object that enhances its surroundings. The eyewear line is exactly that — it’s about offering our wearers an entirely new way to wear jewelry, in the same way they might be used to wearing a pair of earrings,” Sakai said.
Further playing to this notion of jewelry, Sakai has developed chains that latch onto the glasses like a lanyard, some accented with pearls. They will retail from $ 190 to $ 220.
For its inaugural season, Vita Fede will sell its eyewear with a direct-to-consumer model and is working to wholesale a second season, aiming for it to hit retailers this fall.

Chiara Capitani Presents Latest Numero Otto Collection

MILAN — Following the footsteps of her friends Chiara Ferragni and Gilda Ambrosio — influencers-turned-designers of the Chiara Ferragni Collection and The Attico brands, respectively — Italian Internet personality Chiara Capitani presented the latest collection of the Numero Otto label she codesigns with Vasos Sideros.
Capitani, who counts 155,000 followers on Instagram, welcomed friends and buyers at the central Grand Hotel et de Milan during fashion week here to unveil a 20-item lineup of outerwear in fox, lamb, shearling and mink fur, inspired by the Eighties.

Some of the designs in the collection were dubbed after Capitani’s friends, including the Gilda black fur bomber with contrasting blue sleeves; others referenced top models, as in the Cindy fur long coat offered both in leopard and acid green.
For this season, Numero Otto also partnered with Saga Furs, the auction house with the broadest selection of superior furs from strictly regulated European sources, reinforcing its commitment to sustainability initiated joining the WelFur project. This is the global animal welfare program taking into consideration key parameters such as the animal’s health, natural behavior, well-being and feeding, as well as human-animal relationship and how a farm is managed.

Willy Chavarria to Repurpose Wool for Charity in Fall Collection

Willy Chavarria has come up with a novel idea for his submission for the International Woolmark Prize. As expected, Chavarria, one of six finalists for the honor, will present a wool-based collection, “Futurismo,” on Saturday during London Fashion Week. It will offer what the designer described as a “Band-Aid skin,” a double-layer knitwear fabric that combines a 45 percent nylon exterior with a merino wool interior for moisture wicking, breathability and climate control.
But what he’s hoping will set apart the collection of overcoats, pullovers, cardigans and oversized trousers is his message of sustainability.
The designer is asking customers to return the pieces when they’re finished wearing them and the wool will be repurposed into roses that will be sold and the proceeds donated to Life After Hate, an organization that fights racism and violence.
Chavarria said, “The idea of Australian merino wool being an incredibly sustainable fiber made me approach human sustainability as part environmental and part humanitarian. I took a human-centric approach to share the idea that kindness is the all-encompassing objective when it comes to sustainability and shifting fashion to more bio-centric fibers.”
He said every collection he designs includes “some form of an angle in which I hope to share

Phoebe English Shows Fall 2019 Collection in Exhibition Alongside 30 Marionettes

EXHIBITIONIST: Phoebe English showcased pieces from her fall 2019 women’s wear offering at the Morley Gallery in South London at an exhibition called “Inanimate, Animate. (Only) Half the Reflection,” a show in two parts, the second of which features 30 charming marionettes wearing to-scale pieces from her archive.
The person-sized clothes, which made their debut during the men’s shows last month in a presentation, were suspended from the ceiling on rotating mechanisms that afforded close-up inspection of the intricate techniques that have earned her a loyal following.
There was a black pinafore dress with T-shaped cuts outlined with wide satin stitch embroidery, and a delicate white mesh harness.
“We call this coat, ‘The Coat of Dreams (and of Nightmares)’,” said English, fondly nodding to a black topper made from a great many patches of recycled black fabric, each piece encased in fine silk tulle. The kind of deceptively simple, thing that a cursory glance sets the mind to thinking, “Right, black coat” but an up-close eye-ball reveals all its complexities.
The space was scented by Timothy Han, who used the aromas of birch tar and dry wheat from his “On the Road” fragrance to emphasize English’s focus on natural sustainable fabrics, and Johanna Burnheart performed

Christian Siriano Pulls Gowns From Collection After Diet Prada Callout

After being called out for plagiarism by Diet Prada, Christian Siriano is pulling two gowns from his recent fall 2019 show.
On Monday, the fashion watchdog posted a series of images to its Instagram account showing side-by-side comparisons of gowns from Siriano’s show, which he presented on Saturday, to gowns from Maison Valentino’s spring 2018 couture show.

Siriano was quick to respond to Diet Prada, commenting on the post: “Yea wow last time I have this designer in my studio make a dress. Agree, it’s pulled.”

Christian Siriano’s response to Diet Prada’s accusations. 

Diet Prada called out two looks from Siriano’s collection: a billowy blue gown and a short purple dress with ruffle accents. The account compared the blue gown to a pink version from Valentino that had a similar billowy silhouette and compared Siriano’s purple dress to a floor-length version of a similar shade by Valentino.
In a comment issued to WWD, Siriano said: “I don’t look at collections, so I had no idea what they were even referencing, but yes I agree it looks very similar. I wish I could control and make every single dress myself that we put out there, but it’s not physically possible.”

Bella Hadid Fronts Kith X Versace Collection Campaign

The Kith X Versace collection is adding some star power to its campaign.
After opening the last part of the Kith Park Spring 2019 show, Bella Hadid has been tapped again to front the campaign for the streetwear brand’s upcoming collaboration.
A frequent muse for Versace, Hadid appears in a series of images wearing the collection, which combines Kith’s streetwear aesthetic with Versace’s bold patterns and colors. She’s seen wearing pieces, like a printed puffer jacket over a Versace logoed bodysuit and a matching velvet tracksuit set.
The collection, which is the first time the brand has worked with a luxury fashion house and vice versa, includes 100 styles for clothing, accessories and shoes for both men and women. It includes pieces such as velour puffer jackets, denim separates, printed bike shorts and logo sweatshirts, among others. The pieces were produced in Italy, with Versace providing the fabric, and the silhouettes were designed by Kith.
For shoes, the brands looked to Versace’s Amico Trainer and updated the design to offer both a mid-top and low-top design in five different variations.
The collaboration also marks the first time Versace’s Medusa logo has been changed. Kith put its own touch by adding in its own logo across

Conor McGregor Dresses to Impress and Pitch New August McGregor Suit Collection

MAN WITH A BRAND: On the field Sunday pre-Super Bowl LIII, Conor McGregor was tough to miss wearing a custom David August lavender jacket and tie with black pants.
The UFC featherweight and lightweight champion’s 18-month-old son was dressed identically in custom suits, thanks to the designer David August Heil. As is pretty much always the case with any celebrity making such a mega-appearance — and Sunday’s game would qualify — the wardrobe choice was no coincidence. The fiery Irish MMA fighter launched a cobranded collection with August at the end of last year in time for his showdown with Khabib Nurmagomedov. The collection included a $ 39 “Eff You” T-shirt, an $ 87 “Whoop Ass” embroidered hooded sweatshirt and a $ 39 newspaper-inspired “August McGregor Post” T-shirt imprinted with a McGregor quote, “When I say something is going to happen, it’s going to happen.”
But back to the Super Bowl: McGregor decided to wear purple “to remain neutral, as he is a fan of both teams but wanted to wear something to celebrate the occasion,” according to a David August spokesman. To take that neutrality literally, McGregor might be a little color blind since red and blue make purple and red is minimal in

Haney Launches Red-Carpet Capsule Collection With Intermix

Stylist-turned-designer Mary Alice Haney celebrated her new red-carpet capsule collection with Intermix in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, using her new Brentwood home as party venue and backdrop for shots of plenty of influencers wearing her clothes, Rocky Barnes, Jordana Brewster, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Marlien Rentmeester among them.
“The girl that is at Intermix is a Haney girl. She’s fashion-forward, she wants to party and loves a good party dress,” said the designer, who grew up in Chattanooga, Tenn., and got her start at magazines, then as a Hollywood stylist for A-listers such as Reese Witherspoon, Blake Lively and Sarah Jessica Parker.
“Tonight, we wanted to celebrate the L.A. influencers who are setting the pace for the fashion community,” added Haney, whose sparkling home, designed with Tim Clarke, has its own bar, which was serving up tequila and Champagne cocktails. (“My husband told me not to open the good stuff, but I didn’t pay attention,” joked Haney.)
“It was built in the Eighties and we’ve been renovating it for two years,” she said of the indoor-outdoor space, which has an interior garden, and houses her studio, complete with the Beverly Hills Hotel’s banana-leaf wallpaper.

Olivia Culpo Debuts Exclusive Collection With Express

Olivia Culpo held court Wednesday morning at ABC Cocina, where she introduced her new Express x Olivia Culpo collection.
The collection is Culpo’s take on power dressing and street style and emphasizes “GRL PWR,” which is emblazoned on some of the pieces. It’s essentially a wardrobe capsule for the girl on the go.
Discussing how she got together with Express, Culpo told WWD, “It was a pretty organic meeting. I worked with Express before on a few one-off things. I personally was always inspired to design things that are appropriate for the everyday girl at an appropriate price point so that anybody can wear it and feel good.”
The collection is inspired by “GRL PWR” and comes in XXS to XXL and 0 to 18.
The Express x Olivia Culpo collection hit 300 stores today, as well as online at Express.com/OliviaCulpo.

Rhode Resort x Shopbop Capsule Collection Debuts in L.A.

“This is the first time we’ve really been able to sit back and enjoy what we’ve done,” says Rhode Resort cofounder Phoebe Vickers, celebrating her label’s new six-piece capsule collection for Shopbop at a flower-festooned dinner at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont Thursday night.
Jaime King, Skyler Samuels and Shopbop fashion director Caroline Maguire joined guests in wearing the collection’s vacation-ready, exclusive cactus and hibiscus flower-print dresses (some sold with fun, matching belt bags), while sipping prosecco in Bungalow One, before sitting down to dinner beneath a rainbow grove of blooms created by L.A.-based florist Art Fleur.
“We love to nurture young designers,” said Shopbop’s Maguire. “Rhode Resort especially resonates with who our brand is; it’s bright, cheery and colorful — our customer loves it.”

Loewe Unveils New Men’s Collection, Eye/LOEWE/Nature

NATURE BOYS — Loewe has launched a permanent extension to its men’s collection cleverly called Eye/LOEWE/Nature, a pun on the outdoorsy essence of the line and its focus on sustainable aspects.
The collection is comprised of accessories made in Japan, including a satchel, a tote and backpack styles, as well as parkas constructed from technical material, sweaters made from partly recycled cotton fibers, cargo shorts, trousers and shirts in the clothing categories. Prices start from $ 265 for swim briefs to $ 1,290 for a backpack and $ 1,650 for the long parka.
The collection is available now at the pop-up at 52 Brewer Street until Feb. 4 and in selected Loewe stores and loewe.com from Jan. 10. Additionally, Loewe will donate 15 euros (about $ 17 at current exchange rates) to help fight plastic pollution.
“The reality of [sustainability issues] kicked in when I was watching a program about how most of Europe gets a lot of food from Spain and, obviously, a lot of plastic packaging gets put into the ground as waste. And I thought, what can we do?” Loewe creative director Jonathan Anderson told WWD at the launch party for a pop-up store for the collection on Brewer Street in Soho, London, a savvy location

Nike Puts Data First for New Techpack Collection 

RUSH HOUR: Nike believes that navigating the city is a sport unto itself and its new Techpack collection, of transitional sportswear, was designed to see customers through full 12- to 14-hour days.
The new collection will drop in Europe exclusively on the Nike app on Dec. 21. It will then be made available at all Nike stores, as of Jan. 10.
The collection marks a new strategy for the brand “to create with data-informed design.”
“This is really the first season we took a step back and looked at the way consumers were using the product. We spend an incredible amount of time working with athletes or people whose training is their prime pursuit and we know everything about them, so we said ‘Why don’t we apply some of that data-informed methodology to someone navigating the city?’” said Kurt Parker, vice president of apparel design at Nike.
“We pulled together a very international design team and found the insights to be very universal. The kid in Shanghai was living a very similar existence to the kid in London and parts of the U.S.,” Parker added.
Pieces include core performance products such as training tights, hoodies, T-shirts and shorts, including Nike’s popular Windrunner style. One of the key product innovations

Alexander Wang Collection 2

Alexander Wang summoned the fashion flock to the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower in Brooklyn and dedicated his Collection 2 to the American hustler, referencing Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy and Foxy Brown. “Two women that probably wouldn’t be put side by side, but I felt they had an incredible parallel,” Wang said after the show on Saturday night, explaining both were born in New York to middle-class families and hustled to achieve what they wanted in life — all the while strongly representing the stereotypical uptown/downtown divide. Wang twisted and warped “codes of privilege and wealth, and class and status symbols” to give each exit his cool-girl sensibility. The strongest included tweed jackets with leather butcher’s aprons and chain bracelets worn over rubber gloves; a long, houndstooth topcoat with drone-painted smiley face graffiti by artist Katsu, and evening looks reworked with white T-shirts or men’s blazers cut generously to hang loose like sweatshirts.
Wang also winked to his time at boarding school — the result of his parents’ hustle — into some great preppy moments. There were polos constructed entirely of colored safety pins and styled under slouchy ribbed sweaters with long, leather skirts or oversize rugby shirts with studded crests and pinstriped

Nike Vision Expands Kevin Durant Eyewear Collection

Nike is placing more focus on its eyewear business Nike Vision.
The athletics brand, which produces and distributes its eyewear through Marchon, has released its second collection with NBA star Kevin Durant. Due to the success of the previous capsule, they’ve continued the partnership and expanded it to include sunglasses.
The two new styles of sunglasses include design details pulled from Durant’s on-court skills. The Nike KD Flicker boasts laser-etched components that are created from body-mapping Durant on court. Each of the sunglasses are laser-etched with a “KD” logo and Nike Swoosh logo on both temples. They retail from $ 99 to $ 144.
“Kevin was already wearing Nike sunglasses, so it was a natural progression from his optical collection to expand to sunglasses as well,” said Steve Tripi, marketing director at Marchon. “KD provides inspiration and direction for product design and he is involved throughout the process for approvals.”
The four new optical styles include the Nike KD 88, which is named after Durant’s birth year, and the Nike KD 929, which is named after his birthday. They were designed for young athletes and have flexible spring hinges meant to offer durability and comfort. The Nike KD 28 represents Durant’s age when he won his

Bill Nye, Nick Graham Celebrate Science With New Tie Collection

Next year will be a big one for science — July 20 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing — and Nick Graham is all set to pounce.
For the past three years, the designer has had a collaboration with Bill Nye the Science Guy for a collection of bow ties. And when the latest iteration makes its appearance, the ties will be part of what Graham said will be “a big, happy mashup of space.”
In a preview at his New York studio Thursday, Graham and Nye showed off the latest looks, which include the first moonbeam print, planets, various weather symbols and even an astronaut in a space suit with an American flag.
“They’re all science-themed,” Nye said. “We’re trying to get people excited about science.”
He’s also trying to get people excited about the launch of the paperback version of his book “Everything All At Once,” which is intended to offer up some life lessons to help people “think like a science guy, solve any problem and make a better world.”

Shaniqwa Jarvis Teams With X-Girl to Drop Capsule Collection at Social Studies NY

STREET-SMART FASHION: The streetwear brand X-Girl has lined up portrait photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis for its latest collaboration.
Compact to the degree that only three items are offered, the styles are available through Sunday at Social Studies NY, a multipurpose space and pop-up. To help spread the word about the collaboration, photographer Chandler Kennedy shot the painter and model Monica Hernandez wearing the assortment. A “Mini Me” crewneck sweatshirt retails for $ 95, the $ 50 “Too Many Rich People in NY” T-shirt and the $ 50 “Less, Less, Less” tote bag, which was hand-dyed by Jarvis, are up-for-grabs.
Jarvis, who has shot for Gap, Supreme, Riposte and others, dove into the capsule collection sector last year for the launch of her Baque Creative Press-published book. Started by musician Kim Gordon and stylist Daisy von Furth in 1994, the X-Girl brand has renewed its focus on New York, and is on the lookout for new talent and creatives that align with the brand. The company has more than 100 stores in Japan and has loyalists like Chloë Sevigny and Sofia Coppola. Early on, the Lafayette Street-rooted label rallied young feminists and that ethos remains.

SNK 40th Anniversary Collection Review

Whereas normally a review would try to get to the heart of what makes a game fun (or not), in the case of a compilation like the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection I’m judging the work that was put into curating, presenting, contextualizing, and enhancing the artifacts on display. These games are relics of another time, and in some cases not much fun to play today. But video game history is important, and I’m grateful developer Digital Eclipse is willing to do the work to preserve games that most people today probably haven’t even heard of.

Digital Eclipse, known for its work on the Mega Man Legacy Collection and the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, has put together another attractive museum exhibit for retro game fans to stroll through. The SNK 40th Anniversary Collection focuses on the pre-Neo Geo years of the company — basically the ‘80s (or The Greatest Decade, as I like to call it). Fourteen games are included at launch:

Tackma to Offer Elevated Unisex Collection

Jeffrey Schottenstein wants Tackma to speak to more consumers.
Schottenstein, the son of Jay L. Schottenstein, chairman of American Eagle Outfitters Inc., founded the streetwear line, which stands for “They All Can Kiss My A–,” in 2011. Now he’s hoping to broaden Tackma’s scope with Tackma Studio, an elevated, unisex collection that’s being guest-designed by Gregory Abbou, who cofounded Taverniti So Jeans in 2003 and has consulted for labels including Iro, Re/Done, Genetic Denim, Guess and L’Agence.
“I wanted to bring more awareness to our brand story and mission,” said Schottenstein. “Tackma is about challenging the status quo and embracing your individuality and I think that this unisex collection embodies that.”
The collection, which is made in Los Angeles, includes T-shirts, hoodies, outerwear and long-line shirts made from French terry, Supima jersey and modal cotton. The pieces come in a mostly neutral palette of ivory, black, gray and clay pink, with special dying techniques to create marbleized tones and hand-embroidery details such as raw edges and seams. It retails from $ 170 to $ 525 for outerwear, $ 75 to $ 225 for shirts, $ 168 to $ 195 for sweatshirts and $ 170 to $ 220 for pants. The Tackma collection retails from $ 25 to $ 68.

Y/Project to Unveil Men’s Fall Collection at Pitti Uomo

MILAN — Y/Project will show its men’s fall 2019 collection in Florence as guest brand of the next edition of international men’s wear trade show Pitti Uomo, running Jan. 8 to 11.
Y/Project’s collections are designed by Glenn Martens, who succeeded the brand’s founder Yohan Serfaty as creative director in 2013. Serfaty passed away that year.
Under the creative direction of Martens, the Paris-based label won the ANDAM Grand Prize award in 2017 and consolidated its presence in the most relevant department stores in the world, including Dover Street Market, Barneys, Selfridges, Lane Crawford and Jeffrey.
“Glenn Martens created for Y/Project a new aesthetic language, based on contradictions,” said Pitti Immagine communication and events director Lapo Cianchi. “Elegance is juxtaposed with eclectic and extravagant references, streetwear is enriched with historic details and exaggerated couture touches. The brand offers a highly conceptual design in line with the most advances projects in the market and Martens express a witty sense of humor and has a very personal fashion vision, based on freedom, experimentation and fun, without boundaries.”
Last June, Martens unveiled in Milan his capsule collection for the Diesel Red Tag label. Craig Green and Roberto Cavalli were the latest guests designer at Pitti Uomo last June.

Badgley Mischka Joins Forces With Parker Smith for Licensed Denim Collection

DRESSING DOWN: With its 30th anniversary show done-and-dusted, Badgley Mischka has turned its attention to new horizons and has inked a licensing deal for denim.
The fact that a brand steeped in red-carpet dressing is broadening its assortment to offer more relaxed roots isn’t all that shocking. Ath-leisure is an all-day, all-night look for many and designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka appear to be adhering to increasingly casual dress codes with this latest deal. In fact, the designers each wore white jeans when taking their post-runway show bow last month in New York.
Through a deal with the Los Angeles-based premium denim label Parker Smith, Badgley Mischka will unveil its new jeans online and in stores starting in January. Both Badgley Mischka and Parker Smith are aligned in their core principles, with strong female leadership teams at their helms. In addition, this partnership celebrates a women’s inner confidence by adding a thread of glamour to couture denim and celebrating a collection that is made to fit effortlessly.

New Era Doubles Down on Premium EK Collection

New Era noticed a gap in the market for premium hats that were at a contemporary price point, so they launched the EK Collection a few seasons ago, with the E and the K standing for New Era’s founder Ehrhardt Koch.
“Our brand is closely associated with the baseball cap, but the first hat he designed was a Gatsby hat,” said Billy Loncar, senior design manager for New Era Cap. “This line is paying homage to our heritage through materials, hardware and little finishing details.”
According to Loncar, each season the vintage aesthetic remains the same, but they infuse premium materials, new colors and different fabrications into the line. The line is broken down into Luxe, Vintage and Classic and includes a waffle-knit beanie, a shearling and velvet baseball cap, a velvet skully, a wool fedora and a herringbone driver’s cap. The line retails from $ 60 to $ 150. The collection is distributed on New Era’s e-commerce site along with Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Fred Segal, Barneys New York and Selfridges.
“I think one of the really great things about the EK line is the clean aesthetic and subtle details that go into the designs that buyers appreciate,” said Loncar. “The styles are wearable

Nary Manivong Returns to the Fashion Scene With a Direct-to-Consumer Signature Collection

TIME FOR A SECOND ACT: After a four-year hiatus, Nary Manivong is back on the scene with a direct-to-consumer signature collection.
The designer decided to hit the reset button, even leaving New York for the better part of 2014, before returning. Interestingly, Manivong said he didn’t jump at the opportunity to start his own label when Handa Fashion’s Jack Shi presented the idea. The duo have known each other professionally for 10 years, but their partnership evolved over time. Not wanting to rush back into fashion full time, the conversation played out over 18 months during which Shi offered to provide all the production services for his signature label at no cost.
Manivong now occupies a floor that serves as a factory, sample room and showroom in a West 35th Street building. His capsule collection — three dresses, a skirt and six tops — will be sold online direct-to-consumer starting Thursday. Aiming to be strategic with his growth plan, he wants to find the right retail partner initially rather than multiple ones. Retail prices will range from $ 400 to $ 900 with the higher-end of the spectrum made from Laotian textiles.

Descente Athletic Collection to Break in U.S. Market

After more than eight decades making its mark in the Asian market, Descente is setting its sights on America.
The Japanese athletic brand has created a wholly owned North American subsidiary, Descente Athletic Americas Inc., that is based in Atlanta, as well as an e-commerce site that will launch today.
Although Descente has sold its Mountain ski collection in the U.S. for some time, this marks the first time its Athletic lifestyle offering will be sold in America.
Fritz Taylor, a 30-year veteran whose résumé includes Nike, Under Armour, Brooks and Mizuno, has been tapped to serve as president of Descente Athletic Americas and to introduce the collection to the U.S. market.
Taylor admitted that when he was approached by Descente to join the company, he wasn’t interested. “The market is so crowded. Do we really need another sportswear brand?” he asked. But he agreed to make the trip to the brand’s Japanese headquarters, where he was impressed by Descente’s craftsmanship and innovation. “I felt like there was something really unique there,” he said, so he agreed to join.
“The sportswear market is at an interesting time where consumers are either gravitating toward disposable fashion or fewer but higher-quality garments,” Taylor added. “Our attitude is

Matchesfashion.com kicked off London Fashion Week with the launch of its exclusive collection with Marine Serre at the retailer’s new Mayfair town house. The capsule collection featured a series of print leggings and matching tops, as well as dresses made by up-cycling old shirts dyed in different colorways.
“The idea behind that was to create a red carpet dress in which you feel quite comfortable,” the designer told WWD. “The dresses have pockets and a zipper in the back that is sport and surf-inspired.”

Ciongoli’s 18 East Collection Features Artisan Handwork

Antonio Ciongoli knows how things work in fashion — and he’s breaking the rules.
Ciongoli, cofounder of Eidos and one-time deputy creative director of Michael Bastian, on Thursday will unveil his new collection, 18 East, a line of men’s wear created by artisans in India and Nepal.
The line is being financed by RRR Brands, a multibrand platform that acquired the women’s brand Roller Rabbit at the end of 2017. Ciongoli joined RRR Brands as creative director last fall working with Andrew Seibert, who is also founder of the private equity firm Bricker Holdings. Roller Rabbit is also an India-inspired artisan brand.
Since resigning as creative director of Eidos a little over a year ago after a 4.5-year stint, Ciongoli has been working on 18 East. He traveled to India and Nepal and immersed himself in those countries’ handcrafted processes, visiting Jaipur, Delhi and Kathmandu.
The result is a 31-piece collection that incorporates fabrics and techniques that are ingrained in the culture there, including the use of khadi fabric for shirts and outerwear that includes a Mandu jungle jacket with an elaborate Himalayan tapestry textile back panel. Khadi is an entirely handmade cloth that uses no electricity to produce.
He also used kalamkari, a type

Christopher Bates to Sell Men’s Collection to Nordstrom in Canada

Canadian men’s designer Christopher Bates will be celebrating his 10th anniversary with a runway show Tuesday night during Toronto Fashion Week at the same time he reveals a deal with Nordstrom as the brand’s exclusive department store partner in Canada.
“Spring/summer 2019 is by far one of my most technically advanced collections and having it launch with such an iconic retailer as Nordstrom is a dream come true,” said Bates.
The spring collection is inspired by vintage tennis and cycling wear and includes a focus on technical fabrics and modern tailoring. Each piece is created with luxury textiles from Italy and include 3-D textured bomber jackets, jersey travel blazers, colorful knitwear and lightweight jackets and coats.
In addition to ready-to-wear, Bates has a bespoke business, working with a master tailor in Toronto to produce suits, tuxedos, jackets and shirts. For five seasons, Bates has partnered with Canadian specialty retailer Harry Rosen on a shoe collection, which will be rolling out from four to 10 stores next year, and he is creating a line of sneakers in collaboration with MTV that will launch next month.

Brock Collection RTW Spring 2019

Breakfast at Le Coucou — a delightful way to start a Sunday morning, particularly so during the frenzy of New York Fashion Week. Laura Vassar and Kris Brock chose the restaurant, one of their favorites, as the venue for their spring Brock Collection show, imagining throughout the design process how the clothes would look in the setting.
The answer: Clothes and space looked made for each other, the undone gentility of the exposed brick walls reflecting the subtle touch of toughness beneath the collection’s prettiness. In their show notes, the designers said they had considered “this notion of raw American romance.” “We wanted it to be a breath of fresh air, and for [it to] feel alive and courageous,” Vassar said backstage post-show. “Reading about and looking at Georgia O’Keeffe’s work and how she approached it — expressing that [which] she couldn’t find words for, a feeling of wanting to do something vibrant and alive.”
For the Brock duo, vibrant and alive is synonymous with romantic and sexy-pretty. Here, they imbued their lingerie-derived signatures with a casual attitude in washed, rumpled fabrics. Wallpaper prints had a vintage feel while ikat patterns most specifically referenced O’Keeffe’s Southwest. The designers love a corset construction,

Danielle Guizio Teams With FDNY to Create Limited-Edition Capsule Collection

FOUR-ALARM FASHION: With a few relatives who are firefighters, Danielle Guizio understands the round-the-clock dedication that goes with the job. Now the New York-based contemporary designer has created a capsule collection with the New York City Fire Department. Developed to honor the work of New York’s bravest, the nine-piece collection of genderless streetwear features FDNY logos and incorporates uniform accents and fire truck insignia.
Four years into her own company, Guizio started her career as a stylist, working with Lady Gaga’s stylist among others. More recently, she started doing a little personal shopping on the side at the request of her friends including Halsey, whom she first met six years ago. One of Giuzio’s childhood friends is now the musician’s manager. The designer said she first got to know of Halsey via the Internet. “It might have even been before Instagram,” she said.
The pair became friends during their leaner days, when each was trying to make their way. At that time, Halsey was sleeping on the floor with two of Giuzio’s other friends in a New York apartment. As for lending a hand to Gaga’s wardrobe, Guizio said she grew up singing and dancing to the six-time Grammy winner’s music in

In less than a month, Shaquille O’Neal will face off against Michael Strahan on the men’s floors at J.C. Penney when the retailer launches a new line of big & tall tailored clothing for O’Neal that will join Strahan’s collection of all sizes that has been carried there exclusively since 2015.
Penney’s tapped O’Neal in March to serve as the company’s exclusive Big & Tall style ambassador and the new brand, Shaquille O’Neal XLG, is an extension of that relationship.
“It can be a very friendly competition,” said James Starke, senior vice president and head of merchandising for J.C. Penney, with a chuckle.
O’Neal wouldn’t be goaded into predicting which line would win at the register, saying graciously instead: “Michael is a friend of mine,” and adding that he believes there’s room for both celebrity collections at the store.
O’Neal’s collection, which will hit 350 stores and online on Sept. 12, will be exclusively targeted to the big & tall market while Strahan’s offers a wider range of sizes.
“We identified special sizes across the country as an underserved market, especially in men’s and kids,” Starke said. “As we were starting to formulate our strategy, we knew we needed

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

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

Andrea Jovine Returns with Knitwear Collection

Andrea Jovine, a well-regarded bridge sportswear designer in the Nineties, is making a comeback.
Jovine teamed with Nation Design, a New York-based manufacturer, to produce a collection of fall knitwear that is currently being shipped to some 400 to 500 specialty stores in the U.S. The spring line, which is being shown this week at Stitch @ Project in Las Vegas and will be introduced next week at the New York showroom, is being expanded to department stores.
The sweaters, which range in size from XS to 3X, carry the label, AJ Andrea Jovine. For spring, looks include asymmetrical tunics, raglan cardigans, side-tie sweaters, tie-front pullovers, button-sleeve dolman sweaters, ruched pullovers and a tie-front tank. Fabrics range from viscose, nylon crepe and semi-sheer transparency to mercerized cotton tape yarns, corded viscose and linen. Metallics and sheen, black, white, and sorbet colors are featured prominently.
“I’ve known Andrea a long time. She’s focused most of her time on interiors. She’s always wanted to get back into it,” said Lynne Ronon, chief executive officer of Nation Design, in an interview at company headquarters.
Jovine explained, “When we left, it was under circumstances that were not really planned, we had closed when Victor [Coopersmith, her husband and

Steve Aoki to Be Face of Diesel’s New Watch Collection

Steve Aoki has snagged his newest fashion industry partnership.
The electronic dance music producer and DJ will become the watch ambassador for Diesel, serving as the face of the brand’s first transparency watch collection, which is launching today.
Last year, Aoki teamed with Asics to serve as a brand ambassador and footwear designer. This supplemented the Dim Mak fashion and lifestyle label he created more than a decade ago and his partnership in Vision Street Wear.
The deal with Diesel is intended to promote the new blue transparency watch line, the inspiration for which was drawn from the indigo dyeing of jeans, a hallmark of the brand. The new watch collection displays cream details on the dial that are inspired by the stitches used in denim, and cases and straps that fade from blue to crystal clear.
Andrea Rosso, creative director of licenses for Diesel and son of founder Renzo Rosso, said he’s known Aoki for a while and believes he and Diesel “have something in common. He never stops, he’s a manic guy; I’ve never met a guy who can do so much. And at Diesel, we never stop either. His style and his sense of aesthetic perfectly match the design and the clashing

Universal Standard Tests Same-Day Delivery With AC Survival Collection

The blanket of humidity that has enveloped much of the east coast this week has made the air-conditioned office life not such a bad place to be. But for some cubicle dwellers the indoor chill is only bearable to a point.
More than a century after the father of modern air-conditioning Willis H. Carrier finessed the first centrifugal refrigeration machine, Universal Standard has developed a way to fend off the freeze. The size-inclusive e-tailer has introduced an “AC Survival Collection” to highlight its versions of the perfect summer sweaters. New York City consumers who order one of the options before noon can have those essentials messengered to their desks by 5 p.m. at no extra cost.
The concept also provided a way to test same-day delivery, according to cofounder Alexandra Waldman. Estimating that 100 orders would be a good showing in New York City for Thursday’s sales, the response of nearly 300 orders was a welcome surprise. “We had thought, ‘If this works, maybe we will try it a few more times and make it a regular option for our customers,’” Waldman said.
Universal Standard now plans to continue the test, due to Thursday’s success. The brand’s suggestions include the Curve Cardi in black,

Giles Deacon Creates a Colorful Collection for Aspinal of London

LADIES OF LONDON: Giles Deacon has taken up his paintbrushes and colored inks to create a capsule collection for the British accessories brand Aspinal of London. The collection, which is to make its debut during London Fashion Week in September and land in-store and online Oct. 15, will be available globally. In the U.S. it will be sold exclusively at Barneys New York.
Deacon has drawn a gang of elegant women dressed in colorful Forties-style skirts, coats, evening gowns, nipped waists and trouser suits, all walking on a bed of pink roses. Aspinal has cast the print onto the brand’s totes, shoulder and handbags, wallets and other small leather accessories. One of the designs — a woman holding a large handbag — has been lifted from the bigger print and embossed on the brand’s Hepburn bag.

The mini hat-box bag has been covered in moiré leather in gold, rose gold and emerald green while the Aspinal Trunk Clutch has an iridescent hand-embroidered feather motif inspired by the Aspinal logo. The collection also includes silk scarves — and Christmas crackers — bearing the original print.
Prices range from 65 pounds for a luggage tag to 950 pounds for the embossed Hepburn bag.

Gucci to Show Spring 2019 Collection at Théâtre Le Palace in Paris

PALACE BOUND: Gucci revealed on Monday that its spring 2019 collection will be presented at Théâtre Le Palace in Paris on Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. The Italian fashion house said this is the first time the location will host a runway show.
Le Palace, located at 8 Rue du Faubourg-Montmartre, served for years as a nightclub, drawing members of the fashion and music industries as well as an underground culture.
“The Théâtre Le Palace resonates with the vision of the house as it is a venue that gave life to a (sub)culture that has inspired young generations up until today,” said a statement from Gucci.
This is a one-off show for Gucci in Paris and marks the crescendo of a three-part homage to France conceived by the Italian brand’s creative director, Alessandro Michele.
Gucci began its ode to France starting with its pre-fall advertising campaign, which harks back to that country circa 1968, when student marches and riots sparked popular rebellions against military and bureaucratic elites. Photographed and directed by Glen Luchford, it depicts Gucci-clad rebels occupying a university campus, passionately challenging the establishment and asking for change. Luchford’s black-and-white photos are inspired by the bold French Nouvelle Vague imagery of the late Fifties and Sixties and by radical filmmakers François

Gucci-Dapper Dan Collection Hits the Market

THAT EIGHTIES SHOW: Gucci launched its Gucci-Dapper Dan collection on gucci.com and a selection of its stores globally on Tuesday.
To celebrate the collaboration and expansive lineup, the Italian fashion house tapped photographer Ari Marcopoulos to lens the collection, in a range of images paying homage to the Harlem designer’s heritage.
Inspired by archival imagery from the Eighties portraying Dapper Dan’s custom pieces, the pictures feature both young types from the neighborhood and models sporting the collection in and around the streets of Harlem, posing in a vintage car, in front of graffiti or against a wrought-iron railing.

In particular, the Gucci-Dapper Dan lineup reimagines archival pieces of the designer — especially tracksuits and jacket styles — in Gucci’s signature fabrics and decorative elements. Gucci leitmotifs, including embroidered dragons, bold letterings and the house’s signature green and red stripes, stand out on bomber jackets, T-shirts and tanks, in addition to tracksuits, which are offered in GG-printed nylon and velour. A new yellow Gucci logo also makes its appearance, inspired by the original sign of Dan’s Harlem store. In addition to a large selection of accessories, thick gold chains and medallions with lion heads and the faces of bearded Greek gods

Off-White, TheDoubleF Launch Capsule Collection

Off-White has teamed with Italian online retailer TheDoubleF to launch a capsule collection, which will be on sale on the e-commerce site from Wednesday.
Called TheDouble-OFF, the capsule consists of seven unisex pieces including a jacket, a hoodie, a sweatshirt, a T-shirt, a pair of jeans, as well as a hat and a belt, featuring details in the e-tailer’s signature teal green color.
“I started from the ‘TheDoubleF’ visual DNA to create a collection with a special crafted identity that relates to the Off-White core image,” said Off-White creative director and chief executive officer Virgil Abloh.
“We believe in synergies, a critical element to differentiate ourselves in a highly competitive market. So, who better than Virgil Abloh could inaugurate our series of exclusive collaborations?” TheDoubleF ceo Francesco Galli said, referring to the series of exclusive collaborations with high-end designers and brands to be developed in coming months.  “Off-White and TheDoubleF are two emerging brands with a disruptive DNA — the result is an explosive capsule collection.”
To promote the TheDouble-OFF capsule, TheDoubleF has tapped Milan-based photographer Piotr Niepsuj, who explored the theme of duality by working with two models and mirrors.
The capsule retails from 190 euros for the T-shirt to 1,400 euros for the jacket.

Ada Kokosar Debuts Solo Shoe Collection During Paris Couture

After debuting last season with a shoe range for Cesare Paciotti and earlier this year with a collaboration with Dodo Bar Or, Ada Kokosar presented the first solo footwear collection of Midnight 00 by Ada Kokosar at the Meurice during Couture Week. The fashion consultant took over the hotel’s Belle Etoile suite overlooking the Tuileries garden, filling it with plants until the luxury accommodation looked like it had been overrun by nature during Sleeping Beauty’s century-long nap.
What is unique about these slippers is the high-gloss finish brought by the PVC that Kokosar drapes on each draped-and-embellished design. “As a reference, I wanted to take the most iconic and utopian shoe of all times, Cinderella’s glass slipper,” she said, showing off a glossy mule with flourishes of soft fabric peeking at the edges and decorated with a bejeweled crescent moon — the brand’s emblem. Heels and flats came in soft yet saturated shades of lilac, peach or pink fabric — silk satin, duchesse or super-soft cotton. Most striking of all was the transparent ruffle that encases shoe and ankle in a shell-like cocoon. Cherry on this highly iced cake? “The PVC makes the shoe last for a very long time: it

Toiletpaper’s Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari Partner with Maison Kitsuné for Capsule Collection

COMPLETELY SURREAL: Toiletpaper’s cofounders Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari have extended their surrealistic influence through a new collaboration with Maison Kitsuné.
Meant to challenge the limits of fashion as art, Toiletpaper’s bright and racy images have been splashed onto T-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, iPhone cases and tote bags. Available as of Saturday in Maison Kitsuné’s New York store, the 15-piece collection is a second act, The first directional capsule collection between both parties debuted in Tokyo. An image of a fluffy white cat surrounded by white mice has been stamped on a smartphone case, and a close-up of a tongue covered with red, white and blue toothpaste decorates a tote bag. Retail prices range from $ 45 to $ 630 for the new genderless designs.
As the evocative name of their magazine suggests, Cattelan and Ferrari are known for pushing boundaries through their artistic and commercial enterprises. Their black humor is evident in Toiletpaper’s collection of plates, mugs, tablecloths, teapots, soaps, umbrellas and other items for the Italian design company Seletti. A plunger, for example, is among the unexpected imagery they have used for that collaboration. Ferrari has shot a few seasonal campaigns for Maison Kitsuné in the past. Earlier this year the design duo

Atelier Caito for Hervé Pierre Shows Sophomore Collection

Buyers, who trekked west to see the Atelier Caito for Hervé Pierre collection this week, also got a glimpse of one well-aligned apartment in the Soori High Line. Soo Chan’s SCDA architectural firm created the 11-story, West 29th Street residential building. The space’s floor-to-ceiling windows, Augsburg oak-paneled walls, discrete one-lane swimming pool and spare sunlit terrace shared a similar linear sense to the label’s sophomore collection. “It makes sense. My customer would live here,” Pierre said matter-of-factly.
Chan agreed, offering the yet-to-be rented pad to the designer. Geared for bankers, Wall Street executives and other on-the-move women, the label may not be overly enticing for editorial spreads, but it is a winner with stores. Unable to keep up with demand, the duo and had to cap sales last season. Caito’s wife, Camille, is also involved with the business. Later this month, the team will fly to Paris to show the collection to customers from the Middle East, Russia, Kazakhstan and London.
A long-sleeve red dress with a tubular knot at the neckline and another at the waist was created with Pierre’s former boss Carolina Herrera. The designer had advised him “to add a touch of red to his next collection.” Borrowing an

Vans, Marvel to Unveil Superheroes Collection

POWER PACKED: Vans and Marvel teamed again for a collaboration that represents a broader assortment sparked by an initial collection between the companies five years ago.
The lineup touches footwear, apparel and accessories for men, women’s and kids and is significantly larger than what the two produced in their first go-round.
“For this collection, we have 70-plus sku’s across footwear and apparel,” said Ashley Ahwah, Vans senior director of global footwear merchandising. “This was definitely a unique project because we tried to capture the essence of Marvel.”
The initial collaboration in 2013 mainly focused on accessories and footwear, Ahwah said. “This season we have true, robust collections across men’s, women’s and kids.”
The offering is comprehensive, with footwear, backpacks, socks, pullovers, T-shirts, jackets and hats that combine Marvel comic book artwork and Vans graphics.
Characters pulled into the collection include Black Panther, Deadpool, The Avengers, Iron Man, Hulk and Black Widow, among others.
The collection, expected to be released June 8, will be supplemented at retail with window displays in-store and will also be sold online.
“When we approach these projects, the overall goal is to drive energy and promote sell-out from our consumers. That is definitely something we’re anticipating,” Ahwah said of how the collection is

Birkenstock and Berlin Porcelain Maker KPM Join Forces on Limited-Edition Sandal Collection

Strange Bedfellows: On the heels of its most recent collaboration with Rick Owens as well as this year’s assorted Birkenstock Box cooperations with retailers the world over, the footwear maker has tapped a somewhat unlikely royal partner for the latest take on the brand’s iconic Arizona and Gizeh cork footbed sandals: KPM Berlin.
Founded in 1763 and thus 11 years older than Birkenstock, the highly respected Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur provided its Kurland Royal Noir pattern as well as a signature porcelain inset for the limited-edition Birkenstock x KPM. There are four models in all, the Arizona and Gizeh in black-on-black embossed leather, and both models in a black and gold Royal Noir print. Limited to 300 pieces per style, the sandals are available exclusively at Berlin’s leading premium department store KaDeWe through June 9, as well as online at birkenstock.com for 280 euros a pop. For those who’d like to wear their Birkenstocks and have a matching cup of coffee, too, a large-sized KPM Kurland Royal Noir cup and saucer will set one back 1,190 euros.
The special edition was feted Thursday night with a cocktail reception at the third-floor Birkenstock X KPM pop-up shop at KaDeWe, which featured the Birkenstock sandals, items from

EXCLUSIVE: Jacquemus to Present First Men’s Collection in South of France

CLOSING ACT: He’s already the opening act of women’s Paris Fashion Week, and now Simon Porte Jacquemus is to close Paris Men’s Fashion Week, with his own event set the day after the official season ends — and somewhere far, far away from the City of Light.
The maverick designer will present the first men’s collection under his Jacquemus label in a yet-to-be-disclosed southern French city on June 25.
Among the possible locations, Porte Jacquemus, whose sun-soaked universe is deeply inspired by his upbringing in Provence, has deep ties with Marseille, where he spent much of his youth. The designer already presented a catwalk show there last May, as the special guest of the city’s OpenMyMed festival.
For that, he had models in looks from his spring 2017 women’s collection walk across a soaring flat footbridge linking the open-air Place d’Armes in the Fort Saint Jean, a 17th-century military complex with panoramic views over the port of Marseille, to the Rudy Ricciotti-designed main building of the Museum for Europe and the Mediterranean, or MuCEM.

Bravado, VFiles Partner on Tupac Poetry Collection

Tupac, who died more than two decades ago, is still capturing the youth, despite statements made last month by Lil Xan, one of the many “lil” rappers under 25 with a predilection for face tattoos, who called Tupac’s music boring.
That aside, in honor of National Poetry Month, Bravado has partnered with VFiles to release a Tupac poetry collection, which includes hoodies, T-shirts and bandannas covered in Tupac imagery and his handwritten poetry.
“The Tupac estate offered us these incredible notes on looseleaf paper that Tupac had written himself,” said Alessandra Botticelli, vice president of retail creative and design at Bravado. “It’s his written poetry that developed into his music. We were so inspired by the innocence and the poignancy of the message that’s still relevant to our collective culture today.”
The line, which retails from $ 30 to $ 230, features the eye illustration that Tupac frequently used in place of “I,” as well as handwritten poems laid over an image of his face and a “Sometimes I Cry” graphic on an orange hoodie. It will be available to purchase beginning today at VFiles’ SoHo store for its monthly Pass The Aux event, where members of VFiles’ growing community of emerging musicians are able to

Trina Turk Ties Up With Macy’s INC for Summer Collection

Who says print is dead?
Certainly not the apparel retailers, as veteran Los Angeles designer Trina Turk is linking with Macy’s INC International Concepts line to create a mini-collection showcasing her signature patterns and colors. Launching May 15, the collection will offer an INC spin on both her eponymous women’s line, founded in 1995, and the six-year-old Mr Turk men’s line. While a selection of Turk’s contemporary line is already available in select Macy’s doors, the INC collaboration marks her first entry into Macy’s more accessibly priced arena as well as the first wholesale channel for Mr. Turk.
“Macy’s approached us about a year ago, and we thought it would be fun to get our brands out to wider audience, especially for summer when we can do color and print,” said Turk, whose only previous venture in the more populist space was a Banana Republic tie-up six years ago.
The Trina Turk x INC collection comprises 40 stockkeeping units including apparel, accessories, swimwear and shoes retailing from $ 29.50 to $ 119.50 and the Mr Turk x INC collection is 14 apparel sku’s ranging from $ 14.98 to $ 129.

Sofia Sanchez de Betak Teams With the Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts for Japanese-Inspired Capsule Collection

ALL WRAPPED UP: The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts has recruited Sofia Sanchez de Betak to launch a capsule collection.
Thirty-plus styles will be featured in the Chufy x The Luxury Collection when it debuts next month at Bergdorf Goodman, The Webster, FiveStory and other international outposts. Known as “Chufy,” the Buenos Aires-born, New York-based art director and fashion consultant was literally on-the-go walking in New York during a phone interview Tuesday.
De Betak chatted enthusiastically despite a near run-in with an electric skateboarder, “a taxi driver fighting with a lady” and a messenger in search of directions. Having visited Japan three times in the past year, she quickly became a fan of the kimonos that were waiting in her hotel rooms upon arrival at the The Prince Gallery in Tokyo and the Suiran in Kyoto. Her new line for The Luxury Collection reinterprets classic styles and prints in “a more personal, upbeat and lively way.”
Generally not in the same place for more than two or three weeks at a time, she eased up on the travel a bit after the birth of her baby, Sakura, a name inspired by the Japanese word for cherry blossom. “Hold on. I actually have an

Victoria Beckham Previews Reebok Capsule Collection in L.A. Alongside Shaquille O’Neal

While Victoria Beckham’s Reebok capsule collaboration won’t be released until later this year, the designer unveiled what she called “a little merch collection” on Thursday night during a Reebok event held at The House on Sunset in West Hollywood. Beckham was joined by longtime Reebok ambassador Shaquille O’Neal as well her husband David Beckham and their three sons Brooklyn, Cruz and Romeo, who all wore coordinating monochromatic pieces from their mother’s new line. “They are very excited because they love sportswear,” she said. “And they’re huge Shaq fans.”

Shaquille O’Neal and Victoria Beckham at the Reebok event in Los Angeles. 

The new throwback line pays homage to O’Neal and consists of two shirts and two hoodies emblazoned with the NBA All Star’s name. The pieces will be available next month on Reebok and Beckham’s web sites. The collection was inspired by Beckham’s recent visit to the brand’s Boston headquarters, where she explored the Reebok archives and found herself drawn to its heritage basketball pieces from the Nineties.
While Beckham has lent her name to promoting the new merchandise, her personal branding isn’t anywhere on it. “This is just a little collection that I wanted to do to celebrate Reebok, celebrate Shaq and really celebrate

Tommy Hilfiger, Lewis Hamilton Team for Capsule Collection

Lewis Hamilton, British Formula One racing driver and four-time Formula One World Champion, is gearing up to introduce a men’s capsule collection in collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. They will introduce the first Tommy x Lewis collection for fall retailing.
The news comes a month after Hamilton was named a global brand ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger Men’s, starting this spring, as reported. Hilfiger is owned by PVH Corp.
Hamilton revealed the collection logo to fans at an exclusive event in Shanghai on Wednesday, putting his own stamp on the Tommy Hilfiger flag. The Tommy x Lewis flag was unveiled in an art installation that shared the inspirations behind the design, including street art influences and projections of Hamilton’s own body art. The logo is a take on Hilfiger’s signature flag trademark positioned behind Hamilton’s initials in navy, reflecting the brand’s colors and the font used in the British Formula One racer’s own tattoos.
The collection will be revealed to editors on May 7.
As reported, Hamilton was named the face of Hilfiger men’s, which includes the Collection and Tailored lines as well as underwear and swimwear. The appointment is aimed at driving the growth of Hilfiger men’s worldwide and bringing the next generation of fans

Nike, Converse Create Art of a Champion NBA-Themed Collection

NEW YORK — Sixteen is a magic number in basketball. It marks the number of playoff wins a team needs to capture a National Basketball Association championship title.
And so Nike, along with its Converse and Jordan divisions, has latched onto that number and created a retro-inspired collection of 16 shoes called the Art of a Champion that celebrates special performances in NBA playoff history. The shoes will slowly be introduced to the market over the next two months and will launch with the Kobe 1 Proto “Final Seconds” on April 14. That shoe will retail for $ 175, and will be followed by the Converse Pro Leather Mid “The Scoop,” on April 19 ($ 100), and then the Air Force 1 High Retro “Rude Awakening” on April 26 ($ 130). The Nike Air Force 270 “Gold Standard” ($ 170) will be the final release on June 14.
The collection will also include a “mystery drop” that will feature this year’s NBA champion. During an event at Nike’s New York headquarters on Monday, the company drummed up interest in the collection by hosting a question-and-answer session with three former NBA greats: Ray Allen, Rasheed Wallace and Julius Erving. The men reminisced about highlights from their storied

Teyana Taylor, GCDS to Debut Capsule Collection

MILAN — “I love strong, independent women who have made a name for themselves, with incredible energy,” said Giuliano Calza, founder and designer of Italian contemporary streetwear firm GCDS.
The brand is gearing up to debut a capsule collection codesigned with recording artist, dancer, fitness entrepreneur and social media phenomenon Teyana Taylor, who has 6.1 million Instagram followers.
The capsule collection, which is named “Harlem made,” pays homage to Taylor’s origins. “It’s streetwear, where the hood and high fashion meet. That’s always been me. It’s Harlem made, I am Harlem. So it represents me as well as the culture,” she explained. The lineup includes T-shirts, hoodies, bodysuits and accessories, which are priced from 20 euros for a pair of socks to 160 euros for a sweatshirt.
“Last summer, I was in Los Angeles and I came across this late Eighties T-shirt with [a picture of] Cher holding a rainbow flag in her hand, and it was one of her tour merchandise items,” explained Calza, who drew his inspiration from vintage items from that period. “Modern icons don’t communicate this strong way anymore,” he continued, highlighting that instead of chasing cool, the collection is aimed at celebrating Taylor’s uniqueness and diversity.
On April 6, GCDS is

Graffiti Artist ‘JonOne’ Creates Candy Crush Collection for Fashion Designer Agnès b.

AGNÈS B’S SWEET ART: Agnès b.’s spring collection borrows from Candy Crush, but her label’s version features artwork by that name from the graffiti artist John “JonOne” Perello.
Unlike the rabidly popular smartphone game, the artist’s “Candy Crush” collection will include limited-run apparel and accessories for women and men. Known professionally as “JonOne,” the American-born artist got to know the designer after moving to Paris in the Eighties. After showing his work at her Galerie du Jour in Paris in 1989, Perello showed his work in two group shows at the gallery before having his first solo show “Fireworks” in 2015. His “Candy Crush” art was produced for the solo show in 2015.
That was a big year for Perello. After being commissioned for a large-scale work that is displayed in the French National Assembly in Paris in 2015, Perello’s work was reproduced as a French postage stamp. The American-born artist was awarded the Ordre national de la Légion d’honneur that same year.
In honor of the Candy Crush collection, Perello is creating three large canvases for its launch at agnès b.’s downtown New York store. Set to open on April 3, the exhibition will also feature the work of artists from The 156

Alexandre de Betak Auctions Off Personal Art Collection

SELLING UP: Alexandre de Betak is having the mother of all moving sales.
As the fashion show producer prepares to settle into his new Paris home next summer with his wife Sofia Sanchez de Betak and their baby daughter Sakura, he is auctioning off a lifetime’s collection of design objects ranging from a Darth Vader bust to a neon portrait of Gisele Bündchen.
Friends including Antoine Arnault and Natalia Vodianova, Christian Louboutin, Rick Owens and Michèle Lamy, Blanca Li and Bruno Frisoni flocked to Paris auction house Piasa to view the 188 lots that will go under the hammer on March 28 in the sale, titled “Alexandre de Betak, My Parisian Interior Art + Design.”

“This is the first time I’m selling anything. I’ve always collected thinking I would keep things my whole life. There are people who buy shares in order to leave a heritage. I always said I would leave kinetic art and design,” Betak said ruefully.
He started collecting Japanese robots in his teens, later graduating to furniture and kinetic art by the likes of Joel Stein and Marcello Morandini — not to mention lamps, lamps and more lamps. By his own admission, things were getting a

2(x)ist Partners With Mr Turk on Holiday Collection

Underwear brand 2(x)ist is trying out collaborations.
The company has teamed with Mr Turk, a men’s contemporary line, on a holiday collection that will be sold exclusively on 2(x)ist’s e-commerce site and within Mr Turk’s eight boutiques in the U.S.
“I think that collaborations are becoming even more relevant in the marketplace and it’s a great way to connect brands that have synergies and an overlapping consumer base,” said Tom Speight, the president and chief executive officer at 2(x)ist. Mr Turk is known for the use of unique prints and textures and we are known for our well-fitting underwear and loungewear. We speak to that Millennial consumer who likes fashion and is not afraid to be bold.”
The collection, which includes 12 stockkeeping units, is made up of popular 2(x)ist silhouettes in Mr Turk prints. It includes loungewear, underwear, onesies and special pieces like a smoking jacket-inspired robe. There will also be gift sets, that are new for 2(x)ist. Most of the collection is under $ 100, but certain items like the sleeping jacket will retail for $ 400.
According to Speight, the goal is to broaden distribution for spring 2019.

EXCLUSIVE: Off-White Releases Capsule Collection With Sunglass Hut

Off-White’s Virgil Abloh is jumping back into the sunglasses market, and this time in a big way: Abloh is collaborating with Sunglass Hut to launch a capsule collection.
The designer already has numerous collaborations under his belt, including Off-White c/o Jimmy Choo for spring; Nike c/o Virgil Abloh the Ten, and Off-White c/o Warby Parker in July 2017, which was his first foray into the eyewear market. But the partnership with Sunglass Hut is a first for his brand in terms of size and scope.
“Sunglass Hut and Luxottica offer Off-White exposure to a wide audience that might not know about the brand,” Abloh said when asked about the reason to partner with the eyewear company. Sunglass Hut offers Abloh a reach on a global scale, including Asia, Mexico, Australia, the U.K. and the U.S.
“I’ve always thought of sunglasses as an important accessory in a fashion context. It’s a small object that can give you the nuances of a brand’s opinion on design,” Abloh said. “For me, I was looking to incorporate classic shapes from the past with a youthful modern elegance. All lenses are flat, which gives each style the same edge.”
The unisex collection, made up of three styles, are each

Maui Jim Creates Two Lenses for Optical Collection

Maui Jim, known for its patented PolarizedPlus2 lens technology and UV protection, is infusing its propriety know-how into the brand’s first optical eyewear collection.
“Our retailer partners were asking for Maui Jim to launch a line of ophthalmic frames and lenses and we’ve always been a technical lens company at heart, and now we’re turning that proficiency and focus toward the next chapter in our story — the Maui Jim Optical Collection,” said Craig LaManna, Maui Jim marketing director, ophthalmic. “This collection of frames is as sophisticated in their engineering as they are elegant in their styling. We believe in the perfect balance of art and science.”
The company has created two propriety lenses for the launch. The first, called Maui Passport Everyday, is calculated for optimal placement, resulting in an ideal balance of distance, intermediate and near vision. The second, Maui Passport Office, is meant for customers who frequently use the computer throughout the day, providing them with more clarity and comfort at near and intermediate distances.
“We had been working on the designs for over a year while testing the lens materials and frames in our state of the art lab. At the end of 2016, we rolled out the line in a few select countries with some of our retail partners to get feedback from them and consumers,” LaManna said. “In 2017, we started to ramp up distribution, and now we are

Ballantyne Introduces Luxury, Artisanal Limited-Edition Collection

MILAN — Ballantyne is refreshing the image of the brand by raising its creative content and artisanal approach.
For fall 2018, the luxury knitwear company has introduced Ballantyne Lab, a new limited-edition line of men’s and women’s cashmere pieces, which are produced in an atelier installed inside the brand’s factory in Treviso, Italy.
“This collection, which represents our haute couture, will be sold to a limited number of retailers — about 15 in Italy and an additional 10 in the world,” said Fabio Gatto, who acquired Ballantyne from the Charme Investments SCA fund in 2015 for six million euros. “We are selecting specific stores, which have an online presence and qualified staff able to explain the products to final customers.”
The collection features prices which are 30 percent higher than the regular range.
The company is relaunching the label’s iconic Diamond Bag — favored by Queen Elizabeth II — that is available in 18 solid colors and 12 special variations, spanning from velvet to quilted leather and shearling. Gatto said he also plans to implement the brand’s knitwear production in Scotland. In the past, Ballantyne used to create the majority of its products in its Scottish factory located in Innerleithen.
“Currently we manufacture only 10 percent of the collection there, but

Asher Levine to Release Men’s Ready-to-Wear Collection

NEW YORK — Asher Levine is ready to bring his celebrity style to the masses.
The designer, who has dressed everyone from Lady Gaga and Whoopi Goldberg to Will.i.am and Bruno Mars, has created his first commercial ready-to-wear collection for fall.
The line will be shown by appointment during New York Fashion Week: Men’s, from Feb. 4 to 7, at a location on Orchard Street on the Lower East Side.
The shift in focus is part of a maturation of the label — which just snagged the women’s wear design award from Fashion Group International — that the now-29-year-old incorporated as a business in 2009.
“I started sewing as a kid,” said the Florida native during an interview at his Harlem studio, “and was president of the 4-H Silly Stitchers.” He moved to New York right after graduating from high school to attend Pace University’s business school, where he studied entrepreneurship. During college, he started working in the industry, for Geoffrey Beene and other companies, before receiving a call from Nicola Formichetti, stylist for Lady Gaga, who reached out to discuss Levine designing something for the entertainer.
He created an oversize leather biker jacket, and he was on his way.
A version of that jacket has

Jimmy Choo Creates Bejeweled Shoes for Gènavant Collection

CAMBRIDGE COUTURIER: In an unconventional fusion of stilettos and sapphires, pumps and pearls,  Jimmy Choo has added fine jewelry to his repertoire with Gènavant.
Choo has been working with his godson Reggie Hung on the collection, which was the subject of a one-day exhibition at the Cambridge International Art Gallery on Friday.
He and Hung unveiled a glittering selection of bejeweled shoes — and shoe-inspired jewelry — during the event, which drew clients, friends and family including Choo’s daughter Emily.
The shoemaker talked about the importance of craftsmanship and said Gènavant was created to keep the skills of fine jewelry alive.
“The main reason I’m here is for Reggie. The most important thing is the skill and I want to keep supporting the crafts and the craftsmen so they can create more beautiful things,” said Choo.
The shoes and jewelry on display were done purely for the show, and the exhibition is set to travel to London, Milan, Shanghai and Beijing.
The artisanal pieces were meant to evoke grace, peace and elegance, according to Choo. Heels were embellished with rubies, pearls, sapphires and other stones, making for some weighty shoes — with price points to match.
He said prices will range from 1 million pounds to 4 million

Gap in Flashback, Mines 50-Year History for Collection

Ah, memories.
Gap Inc. will launch Archive Reissue — Logo Remix, a collection for men and women that includes T-shirts, sweatshirts and rugby shirts, designed with logos from the brand’s 50-year history. Logo Remix will be available at gap.com on Jan. 27 and select Gap stores globally beginning Jan. 29.
A limited-edition Logo Remix capsule featuring 30 one-of-a-kind items, made by deconstructing and reworking vintage Gap logo sweatshirts and T-shirts from the brand’s archives, was assembled by hand at Gap’s New York design studio.
A Logo Remix film is populated by a cast of  global talent that’s creating culture on their own terms through music, acting, comedy and activism. “They’re the world’s leading culture remixers,” said Craig Brommers, Gap’s chief marketing officer. “Gap is always one to celebrate and bring culture to the mainstream.”
The group, which includes Awkwafina, Bria Vinaite, Connor Franta, Maya Jama, Metro Boomin, Miles Heizer, Naomi Watanabe, Sabrina Claudio and SZA, will appear in a 30-second version of the film that will air on Sunday during the Grammy Awards.
If the music for the film sounds familiar, it’s Eighties anthem “Hold Me Now,” by the Thompson Twins, remixed by Boomin, who updated the original with his signature 808 beat, making it relevant to today’s hip-hop culture.

Jerome LaMaar Using 9J Store to Relaunch Collection

After taking an 18-month break from showing, Jerome LaMaar will return to New York Fashion Week Feb. 6 at Tumblr’s headquarters. Five years after he started his collection, the designer has spent two years building up his 9J online business and boutique in the Bronx. Through advising other designers, he said he developed a better sense for what to sell in the store, he said. “What I learned in this process was that customers didn’t really care about other brands. When they came to the store, they wanted pieces from me.”
LaMaar is all about figuring out what makes his customers come to the Bronx to shop. Beyoncé and Tina Knowles helped to raise his profile two years ago by wearing his designs and posting their support. Cardi B’s stylist Kollin Carter has pulled pieces from his line, and Carter recently told WWD that LaMaar is on their wish list. “And she’s from the Bronx,” LaMaar said.
Guests at his “very simple” presentation will find the designer’s fragrance, eyewear, bedding, chairs, furniture and unisex men’s wear. The plan is to show buy-now unisex styles that can be purchased immediately. The color palette has also been toned down, with black, ash and dark

Haspel, G.H. Bass Collaborate on Footwear Collection

Haspel Clothing has partnered with G.H. Bass & Co. on a casual footwear capsule for spring.
The G.H. Bass & Co. x Haspel capsule will consist of five styles — a boat shoe, driver, buck, sneaker and the footwear brand’s signature Bass Weejuns penny loafer. They will sell for $ 99 and $ 155.
The brands both boast a long history, with Bass being founded in Maine in 1876 and Haspel getting its start in New Orleans in 1909.
“At Haspel, we’re always thinking about partnerships that will encourage our customers to try something new,” said Laurie Haspel, president and chief executive officer of Haspel Clothing. “Since 1909, suiting has been our specialty. While we’ve successfully introduced sportswear and other accessories into the collection, we have consistently maintained a watchful eye on footwear.”
Amie Freedland, creative director of G.H. Bass, said the brands’  “shared values — consistent quality and timeless design — have resulted in generations of customers whose loyalty has never wavered. We look forward to bringing trusted, reliable and beautifully styled footwear to our customers throughout the country.”
The G.H. Bass & Co. x Haspel collection will be available online at both companies’ web sites in the spring.

Stefano Pilati Teases Upcoming Collection on Instagram, Again

PILATI’S ENCORE: Stefano Pilati has taken to Instagram Stories for the second time, revealing teaser images that suggest that his latest fashion project — revealed in June — is progressing, although he has yet to detail plans for it.
“For the second Instagram Stories story of Random Identities, the focus is on the fashion, as in the art used as the background of the 15 looks,” Pilati said to WWD over e-mail. He was referring to the images of his models, who are posed in front of artworks. “The brand concept is still in development and once more, the clothes aren’t for sale. #itisnotaboutsilhouettes #artbystefanopilati.”
Pilati plans to post 15 looks. The first ones include some male models wearing women’s clothes and some women wearing men’s wear. They are wearing trousers, coats and knee-length skirts in a palette of black, white, khaki and denim — and a little bit of brown. He also showed a striped leather bomber, slim suits, a belted dress, button-down shirts, sweaters as well as T-shirts.
It is understood that the artworks in the background were created by Pilati in the Nineties, before he embarked on his fashion career.
This is the second time Pilati has used the social media

The color capsule consists of 10 pieces including the Snow Beach Pullover, a collector’s item, which rapper Raekwon wore in Wu-Tang Clan’s “Can It Be All So Simple” video, the red Snow Beach vest, high-top sneakers, a fanny pack, a bucket hat and the Cold Wave fitted cape.
The black-and-white line features eight styles ranging from a water-resistant nylon poncho and a rugby covered in patches. Shoppers will be able to customize garments at the Ralph Lauren shop on Price Street in New York. The lines retail from $ 69 to $ 395.

EXCLUSIVE: Simon Spurr Unveils His First Collection for Eidos

MILAN — “Making the brand younger, clean, more modern and elevated, slighter closer to the Isaia brand but distinctively different” is the mission that Simon Spurr said he embraced when, in November, he joined Eidos, the Isaia company’s advanced contemporary firm.
The New York-based, British designer — who has worked in the men’s wear departments of labels including Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren before launching his namesake brand — presented his first Eidos collection exclusively to WWD in the new Isaia headquarters here.
In order to attract “more fashion customers” but at the same time target a broad audience in terms of age, Spurr designed a versatile collection that, unlike the quintessentially Italian Isaia tailored line, is rooted in an international aesthetic.
In keeping with the British designer’s signature style, the lineup is focused on clean, lean silhouettes infused with a touch of “romanticism and sensitivity,” explained Spurr, who also highlighted the “wearability” of the collection.

Featuring more tailoring than in previous seasons, the Eidos fall 2018 effort offers impeccable slim suits, including styles with double-breasted jackets reworked to accommodate six vertical buttons, instead of four. While the overall silhouette of the pants is straight and slim,

Brock Collection Pre-Fall 2018

Fabrics were the starting point for Laura Vassar and Kris Brock’s pre-fall collection. The couple has a taste for the traditional, some might say old-fashioned even, tending toward taffeta, lace and an intense jacquard based on an old wallpaper dug up in the fabric library of one of their mills. Yet they balance their old-world romance with an eye for the now. Their signature corsetry was done with raw edges and undone cuts, cut in separates that could be worn with a skirt or layered over one of their fine knit ruffled dresses, or jeans. Working in ultralight cotton voile took the preciousness out of corseted gowns, giving them a sense of comfort and ease that one doesn’t typically associate with corsetry. They also upped their evening offering in silhouettes that felt more edgy and sophisticated compared to some of their flirtier work — a black long-sleeved embroidered slim tulle gown with an elaborate peplum and a similar silhouette in white lace that could easily wonder into bridal territory, a category that’s on the designers’ minds but not in their business plan yet.

Diane Gilman to Release New Fit Technology in Jeans Collection

The “Jean Queen” is going high tech.
Diane Gilman, a champion for Baby Boomer women’s fashion who has built a $ 150 million denim collection at HSN, has developed a new technology that is intended to solve several issues that typically plague women of a certain age.
Gilman’s new Fit Solution technology, developed in partnership with her longtime manufacturing partner Sunrise Brands, offers inner-support compression in the back panel of a silky four-way stretch knit fabric that is intended to lift the butt while providing maximum stretch across the body.
The Uplifter Virtual Stretch Skinny or Bootcut jean will launch Thursday on HSN and is one of several new models Gilman will be unveiling this winter.
Gilman said the Fit Solution technology is “very effective for a far more youthful and toned side and back view. We give you back what nature and gravity took away.
“I must say, I have worn the Uplifter and really love them,” she added. “They give me a perfectly lifted/rounded bottom and sleek back thigh. The silky knit fabric on the inside is like a gentle but effective girdle.”
In addition to the Uplifter, other models will include a Seamless skinny version designed to provide slimmer thighs and hips, and a

Tiffany & Co. Save the Wild Collection Exceeds Expectations

Tiffany & Co. has exceeded expectation of its Save the Wild charitable collection.
The jewelry firm had specially created the range of pendants, bracelets and brooches to benefit the Elephant Crisis Fund, which aims to halt the poaching and trafficking of elephants, while also reducing a demand for ivory.
Tiffany, today recommended as “buy now” investment in guidance issued by HSBC, had originally projected to raise $ 1 million in fund for the charity by January 2019. Tiffany reached that goal earlier this week, more than a year ahead of schedule.
One-hundred percent of the collection’s proceeds benefit the Elephant Crisis Fund.
“We are thrilled this collection has been so well received, and to see that our clients share our passion for conservation,” said Anisa Kamadoli Costa, Tiffany chief sustainability officer. “One million dollars raised in only the first few months means real impact on the ground in the fight against elephant poaching and ivory trafficking.”

Charlotte Moss Creates Collection for Ibu

By Women, For Women: Charlotte Moss is spreading her wings.
The interior designer and lifestyle authority collaborated on fall clothing, jewelry, shoes and accessories for Ibu, a three-year-old brand offering artisanal wares handmade by women in 34 nations. Moss and Ibu founder and creative director Susan Walker showcased the goods Wednesday and Thursday at Ceylon et Cie in Dallas.
From a Panamanian mola clutch to a cream and black felted wool coat made in Kyrgyzstan, Charlotte Moss for Ibu merges ethnic motifs with urban sophistication.
“It’s almost evergreen,” said Moss, gazing at a rack of the designs. “A caftan is forever. I often look at it as, ‘How do I justify certain prices for fashion when you know it’s done next season?’ Now I want to dress like this. We’re a global world, and it’s global attire.”
Walker is a former minister and trained weaver who got the idea for Ibu while visiting Timor and noticing that tourist shops sold soulless trinkets instead of native craftwork.
“There are people who want to pay for the real deal,” she said. “Women were putting their stories into textiles, and it’s a cultural language. I wanted to save that and put money into the hands of the women

J.C. Penney Drops Russell Simmons’ Argyleculture Collection

J.C. Penney has decided to discontinue selling Russell Simmons’ Argyleculture brand in light of the sexual assault allegations that caused the hip-hop mogul to step down from the helm of his many companies on Thursday.
In a statement to WWD, the Plano, Tex.-based retailer, said: “In light of the recent allegations against Russell Simmons, J.C. Penney has decided to discontinue selling Argyleculture merchandise.”
Last fall, Penney’s took over from Macy’s as the primary distributor of the preppie-inspired urban brand Simmons founded over a decade ago.
The decision came as Simmons, who cofounded Def Jam and went on to start Def Comedy Jams, Phat Farm, Tantris Global Grind and more, released a statement Thursday stating that he would be leaving these businesses.
This follows a guest column by writer Jenny Lumet in the Hollywood Reporter accusing Simmons of making her have sex with him in 1991. Simmons has a different view, but said “feelings of fear and intimidation are real.”
According to Simmons, his companies will now be led by a group of executives, but he didn’t detail who or which companies they would be leading.
“The companies will now be run by a new and diverse generation of extraordinary executives who are moving the culture and consciousness

Tokio Hotel Launches First Fashion Collection at The Store in Berlin

BERLIN — German pop band Tokio Hotel is getting its look together. At least that was the prime motivation behind the creation of the first Tokio Hotel capsule collection, which launched at The Store in Berlin’s Soho House this week. It also is available on the group’s web shop.
Designed by Tokio’s front man and most out-there fashion aficionado Bill Kaulitz, the 12-piece streetwear range not only works on the band’s very different style types but looks primed for a broader fan base in terms of look. And price.
Geared for men but not gender-specific, the range retails from 16 euros to 198 euros. It is composed of a black “Dream Machine” bomber jacket that reverses to bright yellow; black or red crew neck sweatshirts plus a black hoodie; black and white logo T-shirts; logo socks in yellow or red; a knit scarf, headband, and cap.
Sound basic? Yes, but not quite. The shapes have a clean finish and are oversized for contemporary flair, and then there’s the wordplay, band specific and otherwise. The hoodie’s sleeve, for example, features the lyrics of Tokio Hotel hit “Boy Don’t Cry” written in yellow on the sleeve, while the cap shouts “High as F–k.” The black

Genny to Launch Children’s Wear Capsule Collection for Spring 2018

THE GENNY PRINCESS: Daughters often clamor to wear their mothers’ dresses and Genny is listening.
The brand’s creative director Sara Cavazza Facchini is delivering a children’s wear capsule collection in time for the holiday season, inspired by her daughter Angelica’s request for a range of dresses worthy of a grownup.
Cavazza Facchini has worked on a 30-piece lineup of children’s wear, named Genny Princess. The range reinterprets the brand’s signature elements of plissé and one-shouldered dresses that defines the brand’s aesthetics.
“I had been thinking about it for some seasons, now. I developed a range of occasion dresses, which also include three floor-length gowns,” explained Cavazza Facchini.

For the holiday season, starting from Monday, a selection of eight pieces from the Genny Princess collection will be available on genny.com.

Gosha Rubchinskiy to Present Collection in Yekaterinburg

Gosha Rubchinskiy is inviting the fashion industry to discover another region in Russia.
The designer is to show his fall 2018 collection in Yekaterinburg, the fourth-largest city in the country. The city, which is a two- to three-hour flight from Moscow and Saint Petersburg, is known for its golden-domed Church of All Saints and its setting on the Iset River.
The show, scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 14, comes about six months before the 2018 World Cup that’s happening across Russia. Rubchinskiy has a partnership with Adidas Football and frequently references the popular sport in his collections.
This is the third successive time the designer has shown in Russia. Last season he opted for Saint Petersburg and the season before that he presented his collection in Kaliningrad, a remote city in Russia that’s along the Baltic Coast. The runway show took place in a building that used to operate as a youth cultural center during the Soviet era, a time period that the designer consistently references.
Rubchinskiy, who is also a photographer and filmmaker, introduced his label in 2008 and presented his first three shows in Moscow. He then moved to Paris for four seasons, from June 2014 to January 2016, as a protégé of

Thom Browne Grows Collection, Business and Retail Footprint

MILAN — “It was time to bring it all home,” said Thom Browne of his focus on and the development of his namesake brand.
During a walk-through of his men’s pre-collection in Milan, which clearly showed how extensive his line has become, with every category expanding significantly, the designer explained how he is looking forward to the future as the company is expected to close 2017 with sales gain of 20 to 25 percent.
“I made a conscious decision a year ago to spend all of my time on my own brand, which is really coming together,” said Browne, adding that he had been “really happy” with his past collaborations. These include the Moncler Gamme Bleu line, whose last season was presented for spring 2018. As reported earlier this month, Remo Ruffini, chairman and chief executive officer of Moncler, said the company was also closing the Gamme Rouge collection, designed by Giambattista Valli, in line with a new strategy that is expected to be presented in February.
“I am evolving my brand, but making sure it’s my own way, so that you can see the Thom Browne sensibility. I am staying true to the label but reaching out to a bigger audience,” the designer explained.

Nick Wooster Collaborates With Five Four on Capsule Collection

Five Four can now add Nick Wooster to its growing list of collaborators.
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.
“To say we’re excited to have him develop an entire collection for our Club subscription guys in addition to an e-commerce collaboration would be an understatement,” Izquieta said. “He has a very clear vision for how to create a truly diverse wardrobe that’s based off of very

Aritzia Collaborates With Levi’s for Exclusive Collection

THE CLASSICS: Aritzia and Levi’s celebrated a collection between the two that offers classic silhouettes from the denim company in exclusive washes for the retailer.
The collaboration is the first time the companies have worked together with a launch party Thursday evening that drew Charlotte McKinney, Nazanin Boniadi, Georgie Flores, Ashley Madekwe and AJ Michalka.
“Levi’s is known for their iconic silhouettes and their classics and we have the quality and attention to detail,” said Aritzia vice president of marketing Sally Parrott. “So we felt like it was a good opportunity to pull them together.”
The vintage-inspired collection is being sold through the Aritzia web site and select Aritzia doors. The two silhouettes, the Wedgie and the 501 Skinny Ankle, are available in four washes priced at $ 98.
Aritzia, with more than 80 stores, has plans to reopen a larger store in San Francisco on Market Street with an opening date yet to be determined. The retailer said last month in its quarterly report it’s on track to open two stores and expand or reposition three to four stores, which includes San Francisco, during the rest of its fiscal year.

Sally LaPointe Fetes Resort 2018 Collection With Dinner in L.A.

New York designer Sally LaPointe spent the last couple of days in Los Angeles strengthening ties with the fashion community and hosting a dinner on Wednesday night at Chateau Marmont. LaPointe had a little help from entrepreneur NJ Goldston, who cohosted the affair with Mimi Cuttrell.

“It’s my first time doing something like this in L.A.,” said the designer, who currently sells in 25 retailers including Moda Operandi, Allora by Laura in Santa Barbara, Switch in Beverly Hills, and 1508 in Venice Beach.
LaPointe is often on the road for trunk shows at boutiques, but took a few days to meet with stylists and editors at Palihouse West Hollywood. “The clothes seem like a good fit in L.A., because they are about easy dressing,” she said. Although she prefers designing for fall, where she can use luxurious trims like fox fur on sweaters, she has found a following among women like Goldston who travel often.

Rapper Buddy to Help Fila, Sanrio Mark Hello Kitty-Themed Urban Outfitters Collection

HELLO KITTY’S NEW BUDDIES: Hello Kitty fans can only preorder the new Barbie Hello Kitty, but they can find the Fila x Sanrio collection at Urban Outfitters. Shoppers will find a women’s collection of apparel and accessories featuring Hello Kitty as well as the Keroppi, Chococat and Badtz-Maru. Apt timing, considering Hello Kitty turned 43 on Nov. 1.
Created by the Japanese illustrator Yuko Shimizu in 1974, the Hello Kitty icon has covered a lot of territory in that time, having had its pink-leaning designs stamped on sandals, EVA airplanes, microwaves and coffee. In one of the more unexpected tie-ins, this fall Sanrio partnered with Tanaka Farms, a family-owned farm in Irvine, Calif. for a yearlong partnership featuring Hello Kitty & Friends.
Fila, which has been working to upgrade its image beyond the brand’s athletic roots, first showed the new Hello Kitty installment at ComplexCon. Colby Black, UO’s general merchandise manager of men’s, said, “We were working on a new project with Fila for ComplexCon and just by chance had a phone call with Sanrio the same week.

Helbers Suspends Collection Due to Production Woes

LONDON — Paul Helbers has put his eponymous men’s wear collection on ice due to production problems and confirmed Friday that the fall 2017 collection had not been delivered to clients.
The Dutch designer cited “a considerable controversy with our production coordination platform in Italy” and said “further development of the Helbers wardrobe will be put on hold for the moment.” He indicated that there were some quality issues. “The affordable high quality of the line is what we believe part of our initial success and requires a rigorous manufacturing standard.”
Helbers said that although the brand will be unavailable on the market, “I will continue to consult on collections, style, interior decoration, photography and visual communication.”
He said his signature brand would remain loyal to the ateliers with which it has been working, and that he is currently studying “alternative set-ups for the coordination of our production and logistics. The deliberate small scale of our company is to be able to work with specialized ateliers who can craft with skill and innovation.”
Helbers launched his first 20-piece collection in January 2016 in Paris, and became known for his laid-back tailoring, rich colors and fabrics. Before going solo, he did a five-year stint as

“This can’t be just a hen party,” remarked McCall, who made sure that guests also brought male plus-ones to liven things up. While models mingled among the crowd wearing McCall’s shirred, sheer cocktail dresses, Qualley and her band Rainsford gave an acoustic performance in the living room. That later gave way to a raucous dance party with McCall leading the band of models.
