Outerwear Brand Bacon Creates Capsule for Saks Fifth Avenue

Customers into cozy, fashionable puffer jackets have yet another option to choose from.
Italian contemporary outerwear brand Bacon — which already lists Gigi Hadid among its fans — has unveiled a small capsule collection with luxury department store Saks Fifth Avenue.
The brand’s signature women’s “Puffa” style jacket was reinterpreted in two exclusive colorways: red and blue. The cropped jacket, retailing at $ 615, boasts an exaggerated collar and a tie detail.
Additional styles and dedicated colorways will be added to the capsule early next year, strengthening the tie-up with the U.S. department store.

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

WATCH: Pierce Brosnan’s Son Paris Creates Video to Encourage Youth to Register and Vote

Pierce Brosnan‘s son Paris is doing his part to help encourage young votes to register and hit the polls.

The 17-year-old son of Brosnan and his wife Keely Shaye Smith wrote, directed and produced the video “Your Voice Matters.”

“There’s a lot at stake right now,” Paris tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I think it’s important that my generation is participating in the political process.”

So proud of you dear Paris, you shone brightly in the company of all… thanks for getting your dad outta the house to celebrate the life’s work of an American Icon Ralph Lauren .

This past summer, Paris worked for Senator Ed Markey in Washington D.C. “It was a little scary at first because I was one of the youngest ones there,” he says. “I didn’t know that much about politics and legislation but he really inspired me to educate myself about issues that were important to me so that one day I could be the change I wanted to see.”

The video addresses several issues “that are relevant to my generation,” Paris adds. “I’m a surfer so of course I’m sensitive to protecting the environment but also affordable education, immigration reform, affordable health care, gun control. I talked to a wide variety of kids and heard their thoughts and voices and a lot of them were similar.”

As for possibly running for office himself some day, Paris is keeping all his options open.

“I really want to be a filmmaker and make documentaries but I could maybe see that path down the road,” he says. “I think you need to be really passionate to want to do that.”

For now he hopes those who view the video will embrace that “voting is a privilege and it’s free and if you don’t vote, then you aren’t engaged in shaping your own future,” he adds. “It’s wild to see a bunch of kids my age taking action. No matter what you believe, the earth is what we all have in common, let’s just make our voices heard and inspire others.”

Luis Fernandez Creates Cycling Jerseys for Assos

Luis Fernandez has turned his attention to the cycling world.
The designer, who is an architect by training and also served as the creative director of Craft Atlantic, has teamed with Assos of Switzerland on a collection of cycling jerseys.
Fernandez created four limited-edition tops in designs that speak to his background in both architecture and fashion. He was inspired by his background in skyscraper architecture to create the jerseys, which feature geometric block design and triangulated artwork.
“Tech and performance have always been a big part of my design work, so collaborating with Assos, a brand that has pioneered performance and Swiss-precision in the competitive cycling market, was a great treat,” Fernandez said.
The collection debuted today on the Assos web site as well as select wholesale accounts. They retail for $ 129.
Assos has been outfitting cyclists for more than 40 years. It was founded in 1976 by Toni Maier, who created the first carbon fiber bicycle frame. He is also credited with inventing the first Lycra cycling shorts, which were soon picked up by riders in the Tour de France, Olympic Games and other high-profile events. Today, the line is carried in around 1,000 independent cycling stores, its own boutiques and online.

Zachary Prell Creates iPhone Cases From Shirt Fabrics

Zachary Prell fans can now get their favorite dress shirt fabrics on their iPhones.
The men’s wear brand has partnered with Incipio, a California-based mobile device accessories brand, on a capsule collection of designs for iPhone 7/8, iPhone 7 Plus/8 Plus and iPhone X.

A case from the Zachary Prell x Incipio collaboration. 

The Zachary Prell x Incipio collaboration encompasses five styles of European print fabrics from the label’s sport shirt collections in navy, gray and light blue in floral or check patterns. The cotton fabrics have been fortified with a protective frame that guards against drops and scuffs. Each case also comes with a set of collar stays.
“For years, I used a basic solid case on my iPhone and began to think about how such an important everyday accessory could be more personalized and special,” Prell said. “I had a vision for marrying our modern shirting fabrics with the most advanced iPhone cases on the market. So, I began researching different case makers and consistently found Incipio to be the most innovative manufacturer.”

Original Grain Creates Special Red Sox Watch

The Yankees-Red Sox rivalry has extended to wristwatches.
Last year, Original Grain Watch Co., which specializes in storytelling timepieces, offered a limited-edition collection themed to the Bronx Bombers that used wood from the original 1923 Yankee Stadium seats.
Not to be outdone, Original Grain has turned its attention this season to its division rivals, the Red Sox. The company has created another limited-edition championship watch set, but this one features reclaimed wood from the 1946 wooden seats at Fenway Park. That watch — the .406 Barrel timepiece —commemorates the batting average that Red Sox star Ted Williams ended the 1941 season with — the last major leaguer to do so.
The watch will retail for $ 595 and launch on June 29, just in time for the start of this weekend’s series between the two teams.
The Yankee watch is still available as well and retails for $ 795.

Vevers Creates Special Imagery to Kick Off Darker Disney Collab

Stuart Vevers’ obsession with Disney continues.
To promote the launch of his Disney x Coach: A Dark Fairy Tale collection, which goes live on May 14, the creative director of Coach has created a wide assortment of images that speak to what the brand is calling the “spooky undertones and the tension of nostalgic Disney animations.”
That translates into images of poisoned apples, floating eyes and spooky castles inspired by the darker side of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and “Sleeping Beauty” that Vevers used on retro T-shirts, moto jackets, hoodies, sneakers, fanny packs and bags. The images will be used online and in stores.
“I have always loved Disney — both the movies and the fantasy worlds created that have captured my imagination for many decades,” Vevers said. “It was fun to explore the darker side of these stories and mix Disney’s nostalgic charm with Coach’s creativity to bring my memories from these fairy tales to life within our world of accessories and ready-to-wear. The Disney spirit truly reinforces the new youthful perspective we are bringing to luxury at Coach.”
This marks the third collaboration between Coach and Disney and the collection will launch on Monday in Coach stores and online. Select

LOCAL COLOR: Patrick Grant is on a mission to create skilled jobs in the U.K. textile and apparel industry, and he’s taking his work a step further with plans to launch an e-commerce site for the not-for-profit Community Clothing label, which he founded in 2016.

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

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

Westin Hotels & Resorts Creates First Upcycling Program to Create Pajamas for Children

CALL IT A NIGHT: With its “Project Rise: ThreadForward” program, Westin Hotels & Resorts is upcycling sheets into children’s pajamas — many of which will be given to those in need.
The initiative is an offshoot of Westin’s “Let’s Rise” global campaign, which is built around six pillars of well-being such as Sleeping Well, Eating Well and Being Well. Staffers at 50 of Westin’s 225 hotels were asked for ideas to take wellness into the broader communities. Of the 325 ideas suggested, the standout upcycling one came from a housekeeping supervisor at the Westin Trillium House in Canada, who pointed out the considerable amount of bed linens that her hotel, as well as others, go through during the course of a year without any systematic repurposing. She suggested creating a recycling program to put them to use.
While some thinning or damaged bed linens are torn to be used as rags for housekeeping functions or donated to shelters, a good amount wound up in landfills as waste, according to Westin’s senior vice president and global brand leader Brian Povinelli. The first 50 hotels to participate generated about 30,000 pounds of bed linens and terry cloth which has resulted in about 2,000 pairs

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.

Cremieux Opens Second U.S. Store, Creates New Label for Dillard’s

Cremieux has embarked on a dual-pronged growth strategy as it works to increase sales.
The French brand, which got its start in Saint-Tropez in 1976, has opened its second store in the U.S. and has also created a new contemporary men’s brand for Dillard’s, its longtime American retail partner.
On Dec. 1, Cremieux opened an 800-square-foot boutique at the Royal Poinciana Plaza in Palm Beach, Fla. This joins the company’s SoHo store on Mercer Street that opened nearly four years ago.
A Florida store has long been on the wish list for Stephane Cremieux, chief executive officer of Cremieux and son of founder Daniel Cremieux. “Ever since the brand was founded, we wanted to open a store in Florida,” he said. “So when this opportunity came up, we took it.”
He said the recently renovated Royal Poinciana center is “a special place” with a curated assortment of luxury brands. “You can’t call it a mall. It’s like being in a summer house with fountains, lots of green and palm trees.” The center is home to 30 stores including Cynthia Rowley, Hermès, Magasin, Orlebar Brown and Serenella.
The design of the Cremieux store is very reminiscent of Saint-Tropez, he said, with photos of the French Riviera and

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

Men’s Wearhouse Creates Video for Veterans Day

In honor of Veterans Day, Men’s Wearhouse is doing its part to shine a light on U.S. servicemen.
The specialty retailer has created a video for its web site and social media channels featuring a former Navy SEAL, as well as U.S. Army and Marine Corps veterans, fitted them in Awear-Tech suits from Kenneth Cole and asked them to work out while wearing the suits. As part of Operation Tailored Heroes initiative, the company made a donation to the charity of their choice.
Awear-Tech uses 37.5 Technology, a patented process that removes moisture in the vapor stage before liquid sweat can form, and is made from elastic fabrics that help the suit move.
The company brought the veterans to a CrossFit box and filmed them running on a treadmill, doing squats, dead lifts, ropes climbs and other exercises.
Kenneth Cole is also featured in the video detailing how a percentage of all sales from the Awear-Tech line is donated to various veterans organizations including Hire Heroes USA, an organization that helps U.S. military members, veterans and their spouses succeed in the civilian workforce. Cole said that since the line launched, nearly $ 2 million has been donated to the cause.
The line is available exclusively at Men’s Wearhouse stores.

Rhone Creates Walden House Pop-up Experience

Rhone is taking its show on the road.
The men’s activewear brand, which received an investment from L Catterton earlier this year, has created Walden House, a mobile house that will embark on a multicity tour later this month where it will unveil product launches and partnerships.
“As we further explore our direct-to-consumer retail efforts, pop-up executions allow Rhone to gain deeper insight by immersing the brand in our key markets,” said Nate Checketts, Rhone cofounder and chief executive officer.
Walden House was created in partnership with New Frontier, a design firm that is a leader in the tiny house field. The 192-square-foot space features “garage doors” made of glass, organic shiplap walls, barn wood, walnut custom boxes and black plumbing pipe.
Walden House will make its debut at Domain in Austin, Tex., on Oct. 15 and will remain there through Jan. 15 before traveling to Las Vegas for the Project show Feb. 12-14. It will then move on to the Westfield Old Orchard in Skokie, Ill., from March 1-May 31. The Walden House will also travel throughout the summer in locations still to be determined.

The Canada native, who left her position as president of Paul & Shark North America in December, has created an e-commerce business called Via Luca that will launch later this week.
Giroux, who also held key posts at Ermenegildo Zegna and Joyce Boutique in Hong Kong in addition to her decade-long career at Paul & Shark, said the site is designed to provide a platform for high-quality Italian men’s wear brands that are largely unknown in the North American market.
Among the brands that will be offered at the launch are Alessandro Simoni, a knitwear brand; Bruli sportswear; Equipage trousers; Marfin grooming products; Laboratorio Del Carmine shirts, and Zamparini shoes.
“I’ve been in the business for 25 years, I’ve seen the evolution and I knew e-commerce was going to be a big part of it going forward,” she said.
So she ferreted out some of the finest manufacturers in Italy — many of which create product for the country’s best-known names — and created Via Luca. “I wanted to give them a voice,” she said. “Some of these businesses are second-, third- or fourth-generation brands, they’re

Destiney Bleu Creates Tights for Rihanna, Teams With Minimale Animale

RIHANNA’S DESTINEY: Destiney Bleu was days late in getting to Malibu’s Will Rogers State Beach Thursday afternoon. The Los Angeles designer had gladly put her plans for an afternoon out of the office on ice, after Rihanna’s team requested a rush order of crystal-encrusted tights.
That was a first for Bleu, who said the Grammy winner has been on her wish list forever, so much so that she and her design team have been known to chant “Rihanna” to try to will that to happen. In Miami recently for a collaboration with the Minimale Animale label during the SwimShow, Bleu said Rihanna’s new song “Wild Thoughts” with DJ Khaled was heard practically everywhere she went. “It was playing literally every five minutes. Every time we would get into an Uber, it would be playing. We were like, ‘Oh my God, she is like following us around.’ I said, ‘We should take it as a sign that that’s what’s next.’ And lo and behold, they e-mailed me to design some tights for the Crop Over Festival [in Barbados last weekend].”
Truth be told, Bleu was hoping the designer-loving singer would come calling for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 27. (They

Randa Creates Digital Lab Division

Randa is upping its digital game.
The world’s largest men’s accessories firm has created Randa Digital Labs, a new division that will take the data it collects on consumer preferences and use that to quickly manufacture and test product at retail.
Heath Golden, formerly president of Randa’s neckwear and jewelry division and the one-time chief executive officer of Hampshire Group, will head the division.
“Heath’s strengths as a strategic thinker and his drive to remain on the leading edge of changes in our industry are what makes him Randa’s clear choice to lead this vital initiative,” said Judy Person, Randa’s executive vice president and group president.
Randa has collected more than two billion pieces of data on how people shop for accessories and the details they seek before making a purchase, according to Golden. Armed with that information, Randa can use one of the factories it owns around the world to quickly manufacture prototypes to meet those demands and the ship them to their retail partners to test. If successful, the product can then be added to the assortment in a larger way, he said.
“If I teach Macy’s how to sell more wallets,” Golden said, “it’s good for all of us.”

Katama Creates Capsule Collection With Surf Lodge

Katama is collaborating with The Surf Lodge.
Garrett Neff, a model who started his New England-inspired swimwear line in 2015, has created an exclusive capsule collection for the Montauk resort in the Hamptons. The Surf Lodge operates the popular boutique Surf Bazaar, along with a retail space in its lobby.
Although Neff said he didn’t grow up surfing, he and Jayma Cardoso, who co-owns The Surf Lodge, connected because of their love of nature and the water.
“You can feel his fondness for the ocean and beach life in his designs,” Cardoso said. “For Garrett, he has fond memories of Katama Bay and for myself it’s Brazil and now Montauk. We have a mutual admiration for the sea, which made it easy for me to see how we could do something great together.”
The collection, which retails from $ 145 to $ 350, consists of board shorts, trunks, T-shirts, tank tops, a jersey cardigan and a canvas tote bag. A small portion of the line will be available from June 7 through June 9 at Surf Lodge’s two retail spaces, the Surf Bazaar and the Surf Lodge lobby, and Katama’s e-commerce site. The full collection, along with Katama’s spring line, will be available the weekend of July 7 at

Alejandra Echeverría Creates T-shirt Line

Alejandra Echeverría went on a quest to create the perfect T-shirt. “I wanted something timeless and refined and could not find it on the market,” she explained. The Parsons graduate spent over a year developing the concept, resulting in Frances de Lourdes — which comes from her mother’s and father’s middle names.
The line consists of eight styles — from tanks to classic crew necks — made of Italian cashmere and silk. “These classic pieces are designed to become the new essentials,” says Echeverría, “made with care for the modern woman who wants something luxe that feels personal and special.”
Prices range from $ 190 to $ 340 for a long sleeve and it’s only sold on their site as of now, with hopes to open it up to wholesale by next spring. “We’re looking to work with stores that have close relationships with their customers and also whose customers may be less likely to find us online.”
Echeverría hopes to expand the categories into a full collection overtime. “We’ll do it slowly and add categories purposefully, where we feel we can offer something fresh. The T-shirts are really the starting point for that and I think will always be a key part of our customer’s wardrobe.”

John Kyle Farmer Creates First M.F.A. in Fashion Design for the Fashion Institute of Technology

APPLY YOURSELF: Aspiring fashion designers, who prefer to hold off on their job search until the economy gains some strength, now have the option of enrolling in the Fashion Institute of Technology’s new Fashion Design M.F.A. program. Available to students in a range of sectors including apparel design, architecture, engineering and software development, the two-year, full-time program will be built around each accepted student’s proposal that they define in his or her application.
Rather than race to graduation, FIT faculty will focus on a measured pace in order to encourage students to give more thought to their career objectives. Classes will include such unexpected ones as “The Fashion Activist,” to help students consider new ways of thinking about sustainability and design ethics and “Craft:ology” to try to instill creative confidence through craft and technology.
The program’s creator, chair and professor Jonathan Kyle Farmer, said the aim is to have students present ideas that could potentially impact the fashion world, and help them achieve that goal. “The relentless pace of fashion can hinder innovation, so here the design process will slow down to allow experimentation and reflection, and ultimately, a different way of looking at it.”
Through his work at FIT, Farmer will spur on

Denim North America Creates New Product Presentation Package

Denim North America, a division of DNA Textile Group, is introducing a new style of product presentation called the Dyed & Woven Collaborative Workshop.
“Since the mid-Nineties, there has been no significant change in the way that denim mills present fabric,” said Lisa Harris, DNA’s creative director. “We transitioned from fabric cards, to washed-leg panels and finally to full garment presentations, as it has remained for the past 10 years. We are taking a new approach by sharing our development tools directly with our customers and bringing the mill process to them. This allows for a truly transparent and collaborative development effort.”
DNA is showing the flexibility and diversity of a single base component across multiple fabrics, silhouettes and a variety of washes in the collection.
The Dyed & Woven Collaborative tool kit contains a sample from each step of the design process — from yarn slub and shade to construction, and wash — offering the ability to visualize many different combinations that the components are capable of producing. The kit has pouches of fabric swatches and yarns in a rolled up carrier ready for traveling, with pockets for DNA’s look book and other materials.

Agnès b. Creates Postage Stamps to Benefit the French Red Cross

AGNÈS B. POSTS: As part of her company’s ongoing humanitarian efforts, French designer agnès b. has designed a handful of French postage stamps to benefit the French Red Cross. Inspired by the organization’s signature emblem, she has created a booklet of five that will sell for $ 5.87 in post offices across France and in agnès b. boutiques there as well. In response, La Poste will donate to the French Red Cross $ 2.17 (based on current exchange rates) for each packet sold. The designer’s stamps, which carry such sayings as “The Red Cross was made from love and courage” and “Together with the Red Cross” are available through August in post offices and agnès b. boutiques across France.
Agnès b.’s involvement was not in response to the Red Cross’ involvement in the European migrant crisis, a company spokesman said Monday.
Deciding on “simple, airy, and pure forms that are a little bit like a child’s drawings,” the Paris-based designer said she “tried to find something, which is a metaphor of my love for the Red Cross, by inspiring me of the actions in which I had the privilege to be associated with….There is at first a heart, which I created during the siege

Jeremy Scott Creates a Collector’s Edition Barbie for Moschino

It’s official: Barbie now has a better wardrobe than us!

Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott has long considered Barbie a muse. She’s influenced him so much that the designer even dedicated his entire spring 2015 Moschino collection to Barbie. Talk about bubble-gum-pink everything—he went so far as to send a model down the runway on roller skates doing her best Roller Barbie. And now, his love for the flaxen-haired icon has gone a step further. Welcome, the Moschino Barbie:

moschino-barbie-1

“The thing I love most about Barbie, is that she is the ultimate muse, she’s worn every style and design imaginable and at the same time she’s had every possible profession you can dream of,” said Scott in a statement. “I wanted to bring all of the Moschino elements to Barbie, as I had done the reverse by bringing all of the Barbie elements to Moschino for the spring-summer 2015 collection.”

A Barbie look from the Moschino spring 2015 collection.

As such, Barbie is totally tricked out in Moschino gear. She’s wearing a slogan T-shirt, logo trimmed mesh knits, and a quilted leather bomber jacket with a matching pencil skirt. And let’s talk about the accessories! She’s wearing a leather cap, mini quilted cross body bag and—naturally, a Moschino shopping bag. Wait, we’re not done. She’s also donning mismatched earrings, several layered necklaces, sunglasses, a leather motorcycle bag, a backpack, and the unmistakable a logo chain belt. Hello, Barbie, can we read your closet?

The collector’s edition Moschino Barbie doll will be available for $ 150, exclusively at Net-a-Porter, starting on November 9. It will be part of a larger capsule collection, featuring real-life-human-size clothing and accessories.

Mom Creates Comic To Teach 7-Year-Old Daughter To Accept Her Natural Beauty

When 7-year-old Natalie McGriff struggled to embrace her natural black beauty, her mom was the first one to encourage her to love her hair and her beautiful brown skin and to apply the confidence that comes with self-acceptance.

But it wasn’t easy.

Natalie didn’t see herself reflected on TV and among the toys she owned — and because of this lack of representation began to describe herself as “ugly,” said her mother, Angie Nixon.

Nixon was determined to teach her daughter valuable lessons on self-image and self-love.

“I started a Facebook group called ‘Natalie You Are Beautiful’ where strangers and friends could post positive affirmations for her,” Nixon told The Huffington Post. “She enjoyed reading them but it still wasn’t helping her.”

Invested in her mission, Nixon took a more creative approach. She hit on the idea of a comic book that would portray the 7-year-old as a superhero with crime-fighting afro puffs. The hero’s curly hair, a trait that Natalie found hard to accept, became her crowning glory that came with special magical powers.

Natalie was immediately on board. She gave her mom story ideas for the comic and the two made the book together.

Shortly after, the pair launched The Adventures Of Moxie Girl, a comic starring a fictional Natalie who activates the superpowers in her magical puffs to fend off book-eating monsters that attack her local library.

“I was hoping to improve and raise the self-esteem of my daughter. I also wanted to instill in her a love for reading,” Nixon said. “I wanted her to realize how powerful she is and that she shouldn’t have to change for anything.”

moxie girl

Nixon submitted the comic book to a crowdfunding festival in their hometown of Jacksonville, Florida, where attendees cast ballots on who would take home the large cash prize.

It turned out Natalie wasn’t the only one who fell in love with Moxie Girl — voters championed the idea and daughter and mother took home $ 16,400 to put towards a larger print run for the comic. The book will come out in June, Nixon announced on Instagram.

Now Natalie has much stronger self-esteem — and so does Nixon. She advises other parents to always feed their children positive affirmations and model the self-respect they want their kids to have.

“How can I tell my daughter her hair is beautiful in its natural state, if I alter mine?” she said. “I have to embrace my natural beauty before I am truly able to tell her to embrace hers.”

“We have to work on ourselves as parents first. We have to model the behavior that we want to see in our children,” Nixon said.

Geico Creates ‘Unskippable’ Preroll YouTube Ads That You’ll Want To Watch Till The End

After sitting through the first five unavoidable seconds of a YouTube preroll ad, most people don’t bother watching the spot till the end. But Geico is now hoping to change that with two new preroll commercials that promise to be “unskippable.”

Both Geico ads, created by The Martin Agency, cleverly place emphasis on the first five seconds, acknowledging that they only have those few moments to capture the audience’s attention.

“You can’t skip this Geico ad,” the commercial says, “because it’s already over.”

If viewers choose to continue watching, however, they’re rewarded with an unexpected and funny ending.

One of the ads features a family sitting around a dining table while another shows two friends enjoying a barbecue. Watch how the first commercial unfolds in the video above. The other ad can be viewed here:

Brandon Scott Wolf Creates Dating Website For Himself Only

Finding love online can be difficult when you are just one of millions actively seeking a partner.

So Brandon Scott Wolf has found a way to increase the odds in his favor. He’s created DateBrandonScott Wolf, a dating site where he is the only dating option.

The website claims to be “America’s No. 1 Online Dating Site for Brandon Scott Wolf.”

Women interested in dating the 25-year-old Brooklyn-based bartender and comedian simply need to fill out a profile and write an essay between 500 and 1,000 words about “an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.”

In return, Wolf promises to be the perfect partner for a woman seeking a serious relationship, which he defines as “being able to lay on a couch together while wearing pajamas and watching ‘Bob’s Burgers’ (LOL).”

So far, Wolf has received more than 45 applications, including one all the way from India, Fusion.net reports.

Wolf is cautiously optimistic he might find lasting love from one of the applicants.

“Half seem real, a quarter seem VERY real,” he told Elite Daily.

Since Wolf is a known comedian who contributes jokes to the “Weekend Update” segment on “Saturday Night Live,” you’re forgiven if you’re not sure he’s serious.

Neither is he.

“People have asked me, ‘Are you serious? Is this a joke?’ And my only response is, ‘I’m not even sure,'” Wolf told Mashable. “There’s a part of me that’s hoping someone is going to get this 100 percent, and won’t catfish me, and then I’ll ask them out on a date.”

‘Boob Goddess’ Takiko Shindo Creates Bust-Enlarging Rake

A Japanese woman known as the “Boob Goddess” hopes to rake in cash with a modified rake that she claims can firm a woman’s bust and even enlarge it.

Takiko Shindo is known for something called “Oppai Taisou,” which roughly translates into English as boob exercise massage.”

Her latest advancement in the bustling field of bust enhancement is something called the “Oppai Taisou Hand,” that is basically a pink rake for stroking and brushing one’s breasts, according to Rocket News 24.

The rakish product sells online for between $ 41 and $ 54. A commercial suggests it can increase a woman’s bust by three centimeters.

The so-called “science,” according to Shindo, is that ligaments holding up breasts need to move. Otherwise fats in the same area settle down around the chest muscles, and causes breasts to sag, Rocket News 24 reports.

As titillating as it sounds, Shindo’s theory flies in the face of modern medicine, according to Dr. Barry Handler, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon in San Diego.

“There are ligaments in breast tissue that stretch over time,” he told HuffPost. “But once they stretch, they don’t snap back. Ligaments aren’t like muscles — there’s no contractible property.”

But Shindo’s mammary massage device may not be a complete bust, according to Dr. Bruce Lee, a Beverly Hills-based gynecologist.

“Usage of the breast rake upon oneself actually does accomplish several things that theoretically could alter the perception of breast size and shape,” he told HuffPost by email. “When holding the rake in the right hand and massaging and lifting the left breast, one is actually exercising the right pectoral muscles, which lie beneath the breast.”

Lee says these muscles, when exercised, will enlarge and tighten and add shape to the upper body. He also says mechanical breast stimulation can increase breast growth in both men and women.

“Certainly, the breast hand or rake is a novel stimulus for the manufacturer, who, no doubt, is smiling. And, pardon the pun, handily raking it in,” he said.

Martina Navratilova Creates More U.S. Open Magic By Proposing To Girlfriend On Big Screen

Martina Navratilova still knows how to rise to the occasion at the U.S. Open. This time, she did it by dropping to one knee.

More than 25 years after the tennis legend won her fourth and final single’s title in New York, Navratilova surprised her girlfriend, Julia Lemigova, with a proposal. The heartwarming moment was shown on the big screen at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Saturday, reported People.

“I was very nervous,” Navratilova said later, via The Associated Press. “It came off. She said yes. It was kind of an out-of-body experience. You’ve seen people propose at sporting events before, in movies, in real life. Here it was happening to me. It was like I was watching myself do it.”

The couple has been together since 2006, according to the Daily Mail. After #shesaidyes, Navratilova took to Twitter to thank her fans for the support.
