Pitti Immagine to Mark 30th Anniversary With Dedicated Stamp

PITTI’S STAMP: Pitti Immagine, the organizer behind the Pitti Uomo men’s wear trade show, is marking its 30th anniversary this year and to celebrate the milestone, Italy’s minister of economic development will issue a dedicated commemorative stamp.
Created by designer Italo Lupi, the stamp bears the black writing “Pitti Immagine 30 Anni [30 Years]” against a gray background and is crossed by colorful lines reminiscent of stitching and seams.
The stamp will be presented at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday during the inauguration event of the 95th edition of Pitti Uomo — the first day the stamp will be authorized for use. Pitti Uomo will run Jan. 8 to 11.
“Thirty years ago, the Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana started using the Pitti Immagine name … We wanted to remember this anniversary with an official event and nothing is more official than a stamp, a paper rectangle treasuring a discreet fascination and aura as something linked to history, even in the era of non-material communication and liquid society,” said Raffaello Napoleone, chief executive officer of Pitti Immagine.
Flanking the issue of the commemorative stamp, Pitti will also mount “The Fashion Mailbox” exhibition, exploring the relationship between fashion and stamps from the 19th century

Scandinavian Man to Launch a Dedicated E-commerce Platform Boosting Nordic Labels

A NEW MAN: The biannual magazine and fashion platform Scandinavian Man is looking to enhance its online presence with the launch of an e-commerce channel in January. The publication, which made its debut in 2017, is aiming to propel Nordic men’s fashion and lifestyle to the forefront of the men’s international style scene.
Following a series of talks during Pitti Uomo 94, a showroom exhibition in New York and a photography project with H&M, which made three times the expected sales; cofounders Jonas Bergström and Konrad Olsson felt that expending into e-commerce would boost the awareness of Nordic labels such as Filippa K., Sand Copenhagen, Norwegian Rain and Tretorn.
“Men’s wear is booming, over the past 10 years there has been an unprecedented rise of awareness when it comes to men’s style through social media, street style photography and online shopping,” said Olsson.
He believes that men are more receptive to online shopping than women are: “Guys are more prone to making decisions in the comfort of their own home, rather than in a dressing room and when they make decisions they do it very thoroughly. They want to know about the brand, what they stand for and who else is wearing them.”
The e-commerce channel will be

Hugo Boss, National Portrait Gallery Pays Tribute to Michael Jackson With a Dedicated Exhibition

MAN IN THE MIRROR: London’s National Portrait Gallery is taking a look at the life and work of Michael Jackson with an exhibit marking what would have been the singer’s 60th birthday on Aug. 29. The show, which is sponsored by Hugo Boss and Sony Music, opens on June 28 and will run until Oct. 21 before moving to Paris.
“Michael Jackson: On the Wall” explores the lingering influence of Jackson’s music — and his cultural persona — on contemporary artists and their works. It features photographs, installations, paintings and works by 40 artists including Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, David LaChapelle and Grayson Perry. There is a graffiti-style portrait of Jackson by Haring, as well as a large-scale work by artist Graham Dolphin. It’s made from vinyl covers from Jackson’s 1982 “Thriller” album.
“When the National Portrait Gallery told us that this artwork was included, it was a no-brainer for us to work with them because, on the cover [of the Thriller album], Michael is wearing the iconic Hugo Boss white suit,” said Hjödis Kettenbach, head of global communications at Hugo Boss. “It’s amazing to have this connection to him,” she said.
Boss will also release a revamped, slim-fit edition of the white suit, which cemented the King of

8 Fashion Brands That Are Dedicated to Saving the Planet

For Teen Vogue, by Emma Sarran Webster.

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

1. Amour Vert

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

2. Sevenly Ntl Park Foundation & Project Aware

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

3. Proof Eyewear

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


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

5. Sararose on Oak

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

6. Fibre Athletics

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

7. Animal Behavior

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

8. Oliberté

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