Ron Frasch Joins Aztech Mountain’s New Board of Directors

Aztech Mountain is gearing up for its next chapter and has tapped retail veteran Ron Frasch to serve on its newly created board.
The high-end, skiwear-skewed brand was founded in 2013 by Anthony Heifara Rutgers and David Roth who had a combined 20 years of experience in the apparel industry. Rutgers worked at LVMH’s watch and jewelry division and moved on to Marc Jacobs, while Roth has an MBA from New York University and is a trained forensic accountant whose grandfather started the eyeglass firm Avant-Garde, which was eventually sold to Luxottica, and whose father started Marchon, which was sold to VSP in 2008.
Since launching, Aztech Mountain has caught the attention of Barneys New York and other high-end retailers and is now carried in over 70 stores in 10 countries, according to Rutgers.
“A founder’s vision is always amazing, but we also know we have blinders on,” he said. “We haven’t had a lot of outside influence or anyone to ask questions and poke holes in what we’re doing. We think the brand can be much bigger, but we need to grow up a little bit and Ron will be able to tell us whether to accelerate or pull back. He’s the

Jonathan Anderson Named Director of Loewe’s Board of Directors

BOARD GAME: Jonathan Anderson’s role at Loewe is no longer limited to the creative side of things. The designer has been appointed director of the company’s board of directors, Bernard Kuhn, general counsel for LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, said at the group’s annual general meeting Thursday. Sidney Toledano has been named the board’s chairman. The Madrid-based house falls under his purview in his role as executive chairman of LVMH Fashion Group.
The news comes on the heels of a wide-ranging reshuffle at the group which, in November, appointed Pietro Beccari as chief executive officer of Christian Dior Couture, succeeding Toledano.
Anderson joined the Spanish leather goods firm in 2013, bringing a strong fashion injection to the house, with former Céline executive Pascale Lepoivre coming on board as ceo in September 2016.
His runway debut at Loewe, a brand that dates back to 1846, came one year after LVMH took a 46 percent stake in his London-based signature label J.W. Anderson.

Young Han Solo ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff To Be Helmed By ‘Lego Movie’ Directors

“Star Wars” and Legos were practically made for each other, as the “Force Awakens” Lego remake trailer proved. And now, the duo behind “The Lego Movie” are headed to a galaxy far, far away.

On Tuesday, StarWars.com announced that Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the team best known for the Oscar-nominated animated film, will direct a ”Star Wars” anthology film. The directors, who were also behind “21 Jump Street, “22 Jump Street” and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” will direct a stand-alone film based on a young Han Solo. The spinoff, written by Lawrence Kasdan (“The Empire Strikes Back,” “Return of the Jedi,” “The Force Awakens”) and Jon Kasdan (“The First Time”), will reveal how Han Solo became the “smuggler, thief, and scoundrel” we first met at the Mos Eisley Cantina.

“This is the first film we’ve worked on that seems like a good idea to begin with,” Lord and Miller said in StarWars.com’s press release. “We promise to take risks, to give the audience a fresh experience, and we pledge ourselves to be faithful stewards of these characters who mean so much to us. This is a dream come true for us. And not the kind of dream where you’re late for work and all your clothes are made of pudding, but the kind of dream where you get to make a film with some of the greatest characters ever, in a film franchise you’ve loved since before you can remember having dreams at all.” Well said.

According to Entertainment Weekly, a Han Solo origin film, which was first rumored two years ago, was reportedly going to be one of the first films in the “Star Wars” anthology series. However, “Rogue One” from director Gareth Edwards, was pushed up as the first spinoff so as not to confuse fans after Harrison Ford’s appearance in “The Force Awakens.” 

Before the young Han Solo spinoff hits theaters on May 25, 2018, there’s lots of “Star Wars” to look forward to. J.J. Abrams’ “The Force Awakens” will open Dec. 18, followed by “Rogue One” on Dec. 16, 2016. There’s also the second “Star Wars” stand-alone film, which director Josh Trank left in May, as well as a separate rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off
