Giorgio Armani to Stage First Resort Runway Show in Tokyo

MILAN — Giorgio Armani is the latest designer to take his resort collection on the road.
Armani is staging his first runway event for a pre-collection on May 24 in Tokyo. The venue and other particulars could not immediately be learned.
The show is to coincide with the reopening of the Giorgio Armani Tokyo flagship situated in the Ginza shopping district. The designer plans to fete the reopening the same night of the show with a cocktail event.
The store was first unveiled in 2007 inside the Armani/Ginza Tower, which features the Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani and Armani Casa collections, along with the brand’s then-first spa, an Italian restaurant and a Privé bar.
Armani last hosted a runway show in Tokyo in 2007 as part of his One Night Only series of events, parading his spring 2008 Giorgio and Emporio Armani collections. Last year the format was slated to take place in Shanghai on May 25, but was postponed for technical and logistic reasons.
Last November, Valentino staged a runway show combining for the first time its men’s and women’s pre-fall collections in Tokyo, and a few days later Dior Men showcased its first men’s pre-fall runway show with a collection designed by Kim Jones

Franco-Turkish Label Dice Kayek Opens First Store

CHIC BOUTIQUE: Dice Kayek is opening its first store.
Franco-Turkish designer Ece Ege, who created the label with her sister Ayse in 1992, has chosen the Parisian Left Bank for the brand’s first boutique, which will open on the Rue Saint Benoit at the end of June, to coincide with Paris couture week.
Taking over a former art gallery, the 1,600-square-foot space designed by Belgian architect Bernard Dubois will combine a boutique and a boudoir on the lower level, where clients will be able to discover the brand’s couture creations while sipping traditional Turkish coffee.
Dice Kayek stopped being part of the official couture show schedule in spring 2016, but still designs couture pieces for private clients. The brand now shows its ready-to-wear line during Paris Fashion Week in the form of presentations.
“Retail was never our priority,” Ege told WWD. “But since opening our shop-in-shop at the Galeries Lafayette a couple of years ago, there has been a real demand from customers for our own brick-and-mortar store. We wanted to create a space where the client feels looked after, pampered even. In this day and age, a boutique needs to be about exclusivity and one-to-one treatment.”
The chosen space had actually been tried and

Rhone to Open First Permanent Store in Hudson Yards

Rhone is taking the plunge into retail.
After testing the waters with a series of pop-ups the past several years, the buzzy men’s activewear brand will open its first permanent location at Hudson Yards next month.
Nate Checketts, Rhone’s cofounder and chief executive officer, said the 943-square-foot location on the second floor of Hudson Yards’ retail complex, will be located near M.Gemi and Mack Weldon and will “showcase a modern, sleek and streamlined design.”
Checketts said the company chose Hudson Yards for its first permanent location because he believes the location “is an incredibly unique opportunity for retailers. It is shifting the way Manhattan moves and works in a real way that hasn’t happened for some time in New York. With more than 1 million square feet of retail and mixed-use space, and more than 100 luxury and specialty retailers, Hudson Yard’s urban development allows us to showcase the Rhone brand on an unparalleled platform.”
But to whet its retail appetite until Hudson Yards opens, Rhone this week opened its latest temporary location, a pop-up at 1585 Broadway that it is calling the Midtown Manhattan Retail Experience.
The location in Times Square is intended to service the Rhone customers who “work in and around the

Phuong My Stages First Runway Show in New York With an Artistic Flair

POETRY IN MOTION: Attendees at Phuong My’s Tuesday morning runway show faced a serious climate change.
As many traipsed into Spring Studios with remnants of the snowy sidewalks on their shoes, they found their seats in a more fiery setting. Aside from the red lighting and toasty temperature in Gallery II, swirling circular fabrics flew up and descended thanks to several strategically placed circular fans. ”I like the poetic so I wanted to create an emotion,” the Vietnamese designer said. “This is the first time that we entered New York Fashion Week so the whole theme is called ‘Sayonara,’ which means good-bye to the Asian fashion show as we step into the U.S. market. So we wanted to bring something with us to create something emotional.”
With distribution in more than 20 countries, Phuong My aims to start selling in the U.S. The company’s namesake, who is also the creative director, has been in business for seven years. A team of people including executives from Eyesight and Kaleidoscope Consulting helped to execute the artistic element. “We wanted to create something emotional that would transform people from New York Fashion Week to another place,” My said.

Benetton to Hold First Show With Jean-Charles de Castelbajac

BENETTON’S NEW COLORS: United Colors of Benetton is planning its first runway show with the artistic direction of fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, who joined the Italian company in October. The show, to be held on Feb. 19, will kick off Milan Fashion Week, which is slated to end on Feb. 25.
The arrival of de Castelbajac, who is in charge of both the men’s and women’s collections, is a new role for the company,  and one hailed as a major step for the label, following the return of Luciano Benetton as chairman of the group in January last year.
De Castelbajac first launched his brand Ko & Co with his mother Jeanne-Blanche de Castelbajac in 1968 in Limoges. The designer inspired trends such as the “anti-fashion” movement and the alternative use of objects such as rags and sponges to decorate garments.
In 1974, he cofounded Iceberg, and in 1978, he launched the Jean-Charles de Castelbajac brand, which he left in 2016. Over the years, he has also collaborated with Max Mara, Ellesse, Courrèges, Rossignol and Le Coq Sportif. Blending punk and pop references, his style dovetails with Benetton’s use of strong colors and a whimsical and irreverent touch.

Homme Plissé Issey Miyake Stages First Paris Artistic Presentation

ART ATTACK: Homme Plissé Issey Miyake staged its first artistic presentation in Paris, on Thursday night at the Centre Pompidou. Guests in attendance lined all four walls of a vast room there, which made up the “playground” that the designer had created along with concept and direction by Daniel Ezralow.
To wit, there was a line of rings and a dangling rope, plus a tightrope in place before the beginning of the performance, which featured gymnasts, dancers and models. It sprang to life after a bell was chimed solemnly and men sprinted across the space to begin dressing.
A group of them lined up sporting a selection of the streamlined pleated clothing that comes in a wide array of saturated colors, from the brand’s fall 2019 collection created by Miyake and his design studio, and demonstrated how pieces can be mixed and matched. Two guys sporting wider garb did an amazing balancing act on the tightrope.

Men walked, danced and ran around the room, filling it with a swirl of lush hues and an exuberant, joyful vibe. A high point was when some swung from the rings in ethereal, mesmerizing synchronized movement.

Thom Browne Attends First Ermenegildo Zegna Show

FAST FRIENDS: “He’s my new best friend, I love our friendship,” gushed Thom Browne of Gildo Zegna, chief executive officer of the Ermenegildo Zegna Group. Although his own show is slated for Paris next week, the designer took the time to fly to Milan to show his support for Zegna, which took a majority stake in Thom Browne Inc. at the end last August. While Browne demurred from detailing any specific future plan for the brand, he said there will be “a lot more stores opening in the next couple of years.”
In a sign of Zegna’s pull in China, Hong Kong singer and actor William Chan Wai-ting attended the show, flanked by, among others, the brand’s longtime friend, actor Daniel Brühl; model Winnie Harlow, who snapped photos of the looks throughout the show, and American actor McCaul Lombardi, who fronted Zegna’s advertising campaign with Robert De Niro in 2017. Michele Norsa, vice chairman of Missoni, was also at the show, having joined the board of Zegna in 2017.

Homme Plissé Issey Miyake to Hold First Presentation in Paris

NEW PLEATS: Homme Plissé Issey Miyake, a men’s line from the Japanese designer, is holding its first presentation in Paris on Jan. 17.
Choreographed by Daniel Ezralow, the artistic presentation will take place at the Pompidou Center at 9 p.m., following the Issey Miyake show earlier in the day at 11 a.m. in the Palais de Tokyo. Ezralow choreographed a presentation for Homme Plissé Issey Miyake featuring the men’s gymnastics team of Aomori University in 2013. The Pompidou Center presentation will take place in same space as a recent exhibit on Japanese architect Tadao Ando, a large room with windows lining one side.
Homme Plissé Issey Miyake was established in 2013 as a masculine counterpart to Pleats Please, which was launched two decades prior. The clothing is meant to be light and comfortable, with uniform pleats to keep fabric from sticking too close to the skin.
Designed by Miyake and his teams, pieces to be featured in the presentation are part of the fall winter 2019 collection, with most of the items pleated after being cut and sewn. The line has been growing with an offer ranging from ath-leisure and casual style clothing to suits.

Ganni Prepares to Open First London Store in Soho

NORDIC NOOK: London’s Soho district is getting its own small slice of Scandinavia, with a Danish fashion retailer and Swedish eyewear seller touching town near Golden Square in the spring.
Danish contemporary fashion brand Ganni, which is majority owned by L Catterton, will open a 2,750-square-foot store at 36 Beak Street. Harper Dennis Hobbs advised Ganni on the deal. And Sweden’s Viu Eyewear, which allows customers to take up to four frames home to test them, plans to open at 5-6 Upper James Street. That store will span 850 square feet.
Both sites will be a cinnamon bun’s throw from The Nordic Bakery, the Soho institution that serves up sweet and savory dishes from the region. A concept restaurant called Folly will open nearby over the summer, but that will have a French, rather than a Scandi, angle. Behind the venture are Guillaume Depoix and Thierry Costes of the Parisian hospitality family.
The two shops and the restaurant will move into a site that is still under construction, according to Matt Paulson at Levy Real Estate, which advised the landlord Titan Investments. He added that high-end residences will be built on the upper floors of the site.

Rebag Opens First Mall Store in Downtown Manhattan

Luxury handbag resale firm Rebag has opened its fifth store in the Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center mall.
The store in downtown Manhattan at 185 Greenwich Street represents the handbag firm’s first mall location. It is also its third New York City site. Two other stores were opened earlier this year on the West Coast in Los Angeles, one in Beverly Hills and the other in Melrose Place. The Madison Avenue store in midtown Manhattan opened earlier this year, as well. The first store in SoHo was opened last fall as a pop-up, then was converted to a permanent location, also earlier this year.
Rebag’s neighbors in the Westfield center mall include Dior Beauty, Breitling, mattress firm Casper and the Apple Store. The store features Rebag’s signature Rebag Bar, where consumers can check in with their handbags and get an estimate on their value. Also a feature in the store is the company’s Hermès Birkin Wall, which shows all available Birkin bags at the store.

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.

Richard James Opens First U.S. Store on Park Avenue

NEW YORK — It took over a quarter century — and a new majority owner from America — but Savile Row tailor Richard James has finally opened his first store in the U.S.
The 2,260-square-foot boutique on the corner of 57th Street and Park Avenue is only the third store for the London-based brand, which was founded by James and Sean Dixon 26 years ago. In March 2017, Dixon inked a deal to sell a majority stake in the business to one of its longtime customers, Charles S. Cohen, a billionaire real estate mogul based in New York. Dixon, who retains a minority interest in the company, had been searching for an investor to take the business to the next level and help it expand internationally. James no longer has any financial stake in the brand.
“This is our first American store,” said Dixon, whose title is managing director. “Our plan has always been to open in the States, and New York is the obvious choice.” He added that the company had been searching for a long time for the “right opportunity and time,” and Cohen’s investment — and the fact that he owns the retail component of the pre-war building — was

First Lady Melania Trump Wears Reem Acra for G20 Leaders’ Dinner

With the G20 in full swing, the powers that be gathered Friday night at the leaders’ dinner at Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. First Lady Melania Trump dressed for the occasion in a custom Reem Acra column dress with a vintage belt and metallic pumps. Her yellow diamond stud earrings were chosen to accent the glittery belt. FLOTUS originally selected the dress for another occasion, but it turned out to be better suited for this one, her stylist Hervé Pierre said.
She and Acra, who is based in New York, are “very good friends,” and the designer suited up Trump for a formal dinner the night before last year’s inaugural, the stylist said. Describing Acra as “a dream,” Pierre said, “Designers can be difficult. [laughing] She is really nice.”
Of course, speculation centered on diplomatic relations, especially Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s welcome to Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as the overheard informal exchange between the prince and French President Emmanuel Macron. While Trump met with prime minister of India Narendra Modi and Japan’s prime minister Shinzō Abe earlier in the day, the dinner lends itself to more relaxed conversations among world leaders.

First Gears Pop! Gameplay Revealed

The Coalition has provided a first look at Gears Pop! gameplay, which offers a condensed real-time strategy experience with a few special Gears of War touches.

Revealed in a developer video, you can watch a single PvP match between studio head Rod Fergusson and lead game designer Tyler Bielman. Though a “soft” launch is coming soon, a wide release of the game will come sometime in 2019 for iPhones and Androids.

“The object of the game is to play out your units and push forward and take down the outposts and the leader at the opposite end of the field,” said Bielman.

You progressively take cover attempting to get to the other end of the field: destroying an enemy outpost at the other end will net you a single point. A power bar at the bottom of the screen fills up in discrete segments, with each unit costing a certain ammount of these segments to play.

Lingua Franca Opens First Store on Bleecker

NEW YORK — Lingua Franca is among the new storefronts on Bleecker Street here.
Rachelle Hruska MacPherson, who founded the brand of cashmere sweaters embroidered with phrases in 2016, opened her first store at 382 Bleecker Street earlier this week. The space is one of the seven storefronts Brookfield Properties bought earlier this year with plans to revive the neighborhood, a once-booming retail destination that became a bit of a ghost town in recent years. Lingua Franca, along with Prabal Gurung, Slightly Alabama and Bonberi and Fleurotica, are the tenants involved in the Love, Bleecker project done with Skylight and Brookfield to bring art, music and cultural programming to the neighborhood along with retail.
Hruska lives in the neighborhood with her family. Her husband Sean MacPherson owns the Waverly Inn, located on Bank Street. “We’re super committed to the neighborhood, and I’ve always been interested in what happened on Bleecker,” said Hruska MacPherson. “When I moved to New York 15 years ago, that’s where I went to hang out and shop and pretend to be cool. It was sad to see it be dead and fall to all these crazy high rents.”
The 560-square-foot store was designed by Sean MacPherson and features custom

Barack and Michelle Obama Are Adapting a Book Critical of Trump for Their First Netflix Project

Former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama‘s first project for Netflix will be an adaption of a scathing book about President Trump‘s administration, The Fifth Risk by Michael Lewis, according to the latest episode of Katie Couric’s podcast.

“ optioned the book to come up with a series for Netflix to help people better understand the government,” Katie Couric said during her interview with Lewis, who broke the news.

In May, the Obamas announced their decision to produce a variety of content for Netflix through their company Higher Ground Productions.

“We hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples,” the former president previously said, according to a Netflix press release, “and help them share their stories with the entire world.”

The Obamas’ adaption of The Fifth Risk will be their first endeavor in a series production. And it will serve as an entertaining and necessary “civics lesson,” explained Lewis, who is the author of other bestselling books that have been adapted to film, like The Big Short and Moneyball.

As with his other books, in The Fifth Risk Lewis informs and entertains readers about topics that can sometimes be considered tedious. During his interview with Couric, he explained how his book delves into what he sees as the huge issues that Trump’s administration is creating across departments in the federal government — issues that Lewis says are endangering the very stability of the country.

Despite Lewis’ condemnation of Trump, a spokesperson for the Obamas’ production company, Higher Ground, said that The Fifth Risk Netflix project would center around the “civic lessons” it presents and not attack Trump, according to The New York Times.

It will be a “humorous series demystifying the little-known ways in which federal agencies improve our lives and serve our nation, from the food we eat to the planes we travel on,” the spokeswoman told the Times.

According to the author, problems in the administration began before and during the transition.

“Most everyone involved with , including Trump, were not prepared to win,” Lewis said. “He had not taken seriously the idea that he had to take over this operation.”

According to Lewis, the new president decided to appoint people into government office based on “appearance,” rather than experience.

As a result, many of the briefings that Obama’s team had prepared “for the better part of a year” to present to the new administration were not even seen, Lewis says. For instance, the Department of Energy would typically show incoming officials how to “manage the nuclear arsenal,” so they can “test atomic weapons without actually blowing one up,” Lewis explained.

“Three months ago, I was still getting briefings from very important people in the government that had never been given because no one had ever showed up to hear it,” Lewis said during the podcast. “It’s just a loss of knowledge. Who can run anything that way? There’s no decent argument for not learning about the thing you need to run.”

Lewis revealed that his book also delves into Trump’s alleged ties with Russia and how that affected his decisions during the transition. Specifically, Lewis addressed Trump’s decision to appoint Michael Flynn as national security adviser, despite then-senior aide Chris Christie’s warnings against the idea. Lewis argued that Flynn’s own ties to Russia are a “plausible explanation” as to why Trump wanted him on his team. (Flynn has since pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his connections with Russian officials.)

“I think had positive reasons for wanting chaos. I think they were friends of his… people who had connections to Russia like Mike Flynn, who he wanted to be able to put in important positions,” Lewis said. “I think thinks he functions better if things are not orderly.. was just kind of attracted to, ‘Let the chips fall where they may.’ ‘I’ll take care of all of this. I’ll decide who is going to be in the cabinet,’ mainly by casting them by appearance.”

Those type of staffing decisions have huge consequences, Lewis argued. The government is being dangerously mismanaged, according to his book. Lewis’ hope is to reframe Americans’ understanding of how government works.

“Trump is a symptom, not just cause here. We don’t elect someone who is so ignorant and negligent unless we have gotten to the point where we so misvalue and misunderstand the thing he’s running,” Lewis told Couric. “If society understood the government, if we all had a good civics lesson, we’d all say that person shouldn’t be running that because it’d be a catastrophe because that enterprise, the government, is really important.”

He continued: “The narrative needs to change first, that’s why I wrote the book… So people stop seeing the government as the problem and start seeing it as a tool, as a solution. If this society is going to survive, it’s got to happen.”

Psycho Bunny to Open First U.S. Retail Store in Miami

Psycho Bunny is jumping into the retail fray in Miami.
The New York-based men’s brand with the slightly maniacal rabbit logo with its teeth hanging over a skull and crossbones, is opening its first store in the Aventura Mall this fall.
The brand operates two stores in Panama, two in Mexico and will open one in Bogotá, Colombia, by the end of the year. There are also 17 retail locations in Japan, including a flagship in Shibuya.
The concept is a bit unorthodox since the store will have two iterations: a 1,400-square-foot space will open as a pop-up at the beginning of November and stay in operation through the middle of January. At that point, it will be closed until the middle of March when it will reopen permanently as a 1,600-square-foot flagship.
“Because of the timing of when we signed the lease, we needed more time to [create a flagship],” said Robert Goldman, who operates the brand with Robert Godley. So to capitalize on the holiday traffic, a pop-up was created that will replicate a working artist’s studio. It is being designed by the Montreal-based architectural firm, Aedifica, which has worked with Adidas, Aldo and others.

‘Made in France’ Brand Rue Begand Opens First Store

PARIS — One is in Troyes, a city in eastern France with a deep-rooted textile history. The other is located in the Haut Marais, a trendy shopping district in the center of Paris.
Rue Begand — the men’s fashion brand — has opened its first brick-and-mortar store on the Rue Charlot, after launching wholesale in January at L’Exception in France and United Arrows in Japan.
Doubling as the label’s headquarters, the shop sports a photo studio in its basement where the fall 2018 and spring 2019 collections were shot for the Rue Begand e-shop, set to launch in a couple of weeks.
Named after a street in Troyes that used to house a number of clothing workshops, the brand is a celebration of local savoir faire.
“Eighty percent of our clothes are made in Troyes,” said Rue Begand’s founder Samuel Granata, adding that the remaining part is manufactured in a nearby town, with a few of the more voluminous pieces being made in Tunisia.
Rue Begand works with L’Atelier d’Ariane, a historical clothing manufacturer based in Troyes run by Granata’s mother Véronique. “My family has had the atelier for over 20 years,” said the 25-year-old founder, who runs the brand with his brother Arthur. “I spent most of

Dsquared2 Revamps the Brand’s First Fragrance and Introduces a Women’s Version  

TIM-BER!: “We’re not killing trees anymore,” said Dean Caten of Dsquared2 at the exclusive launch of the brand’s revamped Wood fragrance, which no longer has wooden packaging.
The men’s and women’s fragrances — brown for the boys and pink for the girls — now takes the shape of a hefty beer bottle.
The 30-ml. bottle sells for 44 pounds and the 100-ml. bottle sells for 75 pounds. The fragrance launches at Harvey Nichols on Monday and the Caten brothers expressed the importance of launching exclusively with the department store.
“It’s important to give an exclusive to somebody because it makes it more important as opposed to coming out everywhere. It’s more intimate this way,” said Dean.
In May, Dsquared2 inked a licensing agreement with Euroitalia for the production and distribution of the brand’s fragrances, and Wood is the first perfume to be relaunched under this new partnership.
The men’s fragrance has been reworked while the women’s is a completely new scent created by perfumer Marie Salamagne. Both incorporate similar base notes such as white wood and ambrox.
“We’ve scrapped all of our other perfumes and since Wood was our first fragrance and our bestseller, we’re relaunching with this,” said Dan.

First Lady Melania Trump Visits Obama Hall and Ghana Museum

HAIL TO THE CHIEF: First Lady Melania Trump spent part of Wednesday morning visiting Obama Hall in the Emintsimadze Palace in Ghana’s Cape Coast. A photo of President Obama, who visited the site during his first year in office, is hung in the lobby, according to a press pool report.
Trump was greeted with an “Awkwaaba” (Welcome) sign with a photo of her own likeness and name. She had traveled there to meet with Osabarima Kwesi Atta II, the chieftain of the regional Fante tribe.
The First Lady arrived to a flurry of Ghanaian and American flags outdoors. Yellow and purple sashes — meant to be signs of royalty and wealth — adorned the interiors. Girls played traditional horns, better known as antentebens. In an olive jacket, tan pants and chocolate brown stilettos, Trump appears to be maintaining an earthy palette thus far for her four-nation trip.
As is customary, the First Lady was seeking permission to visit the Cape Coast Castle, which served as an outpost to transfer slaves. Obama likened it to a Holocaust concentration camp.
With approval granted, Trump ditched her heels for flats, as there was some ground to cover. At what is believed to be the site in Ghana

Alexis Mabille Celebrates First Restaurant, Froufrou

PARIS — A line of guests formed in front of the Edouard VII in the 9th arrondissement, but they were there for something other than the theater’s program. Designer Alexis Mabille was officially unveiling Froufrou, the theater’s new restaurant and bar. Formerly Café Guitry, Froufrou was decorated by Mabille in lavish Belle Epoque style.
The designer had spent the day presenting his spring collection, but showed no signs of fatigue as he greeted guests in the foyer. “It had to come to life,” said the designer, who admitted to spending the summer working on the project.
Chef Juan Arbelaez created the menu, a selection of dishes to be devoured with the same excess and enthusiasm as a stage actor. “At Froufrou, you will eat and drink a bit too much, laugh too loudly, make a lot of noise and enjoy a moment you’ll never forget,” said the Franco-Colombian chef.
Guests queued for a piece of his braised lamb shank, served with a generous dollop of smooth mashed potato. Waiters passed around toasted slices of baguette topped with bone marrow and white truffle, while pescatarians drifted to bowls of lemony pollack ceviche.

Grandma Breaks Into Happy Tears After Meeting Her New Dog for the First Time

Pooches have a powerful sway over one’s emotions, as Shirley Lann knows.

The 84-year-old grandmother lost her beloved dog of 14 years one month ago, reports NBC4i.com. The dog’s death was especially hard on her since Lann shared the canine with her late husband.

To Lann’s family it was obvious there was a hole in the woman’s life without a furry friend, so her loved ones decided to help her out.

After searching a local shelter, they found the perfect pup — a Lhasa Apso named Sammy.

The family surprised Lann with the new addition at a medical rehabilitation center, where Lann was staying to recover from some recent health problems.

Her grandson, Matthew McVey, captured the first meeting on camera and posted the video to Twitter.

“My grandma lost her dog that she’s had for the past 14 years about a month ago (she was extremely close with her since it was my late grandfather’s dog too) and hasn’t been the same since she passed. Today my mom surprised her with Sammy,” McVey posted along with the clip.

In the video, Lann breaks into happy tears the moment Sammy steps into the room. Soon the fluffy pup is in her arms and Lann hugs Sammy lovingly to her chest.

McVey told Inside Edition the pair, who became fast friends, will be living together once Lann finish her recovery and moves back home.

Law Roach Styles His First Runway Show for Bosideng

LAW ON FASHION WEEK: The morning after Law Roach had styled his first runway for show for Bosideng, he was back on set working on a photo shoot. His agent Kent Belden was approached by the sporty company about lending his talents for its NYFW debut. “I was super-excited that they did. It was my first time styling at a New York Fashion Week show. It was exciting,” he said. “I’m actually really flattered and honored that this brand chose me. They could have easily used a stylist from Shanghai or somewhere else. The fact that they saw something in my work that made them want to collaborate with me was like, ‘Wow.’”
As stylist for such clients as Zendaya, Ariana Grande and Tiffany Haddish, Roach had not styled or cast a runway show before. Started in 1976, Bosideng specializes in down outerwear with distribution in more than 72 countries. His inaugural effort for the brand was a learning experience, partially due to the fact he doesn’t speak Mandarin and most of the people he worked with didn’t speak English. “It was challenging but also amazing how the language of fashion is so universal — so many of the things that

Furla Opens First Store in Florida at Aventura Mall

Furla brought blossoms and butterflies to fete its one and only Florida store. The Bologna, Italy-based accessories brand and its chief executive officer of the Americas, Scott Link, hosted back-to-back events on July 12: a brunch at its new, nearly 1,200-square-foot location in Aventura Mall, and a sit-down dinner with a flower stand for press and influencers to make their own bouquets at Soho Beach House. The summery theme referenced pre-fall 2018’s women’s bags printed and embellished with florals and butterflies from studs to leather appliqués.

Starbucks to Open First Italian Store in September

On Sept. 6, the Seattle-based company will host an event in Milan to celebrate the opening of the first Italian Starbucks Reserve Roastery.

This includes a collaboration with Milan-based bakery group Princi, which in partnership with the American coffee maker opened its first international store in Seattle last year. The world’s biggest Starbucks Reserve Roastery will open in Chicago next year.
According to Starbucks, the opening of the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Milan will kick off a strategy aimed at bringing the coffee chain to the streets of the most important Italian cities.

Descendant of Thieves to Open First Retail Store

Men’s brand Descendant of Thieves is not afraid of all the empty storefronts on Bleecker Street and will open its first brick-and-mortar store on the beleaguered strip in November.
The shop at No. 203 is to house a 600-square-foot retail store and 1,000-square-foot showroom and office. The building has housed only two other tenants in its 100-year-plus existence: a bakery and a leather goods shop. It’s located on the east side of Sixth Avenue, near Minetta Street. Its design will be a nod to the history of the space and will include vintage furnishings and vintage-inspired fixtures.
“Descendant of Thieves is going against the grain in leading a movement to bring back the independent shops of yesteryear and reignite New York City’s retail,” said Matteo Maniatty, creative director and cofounder of the brand. “We chose the 203 Bleecker Street landmarked location because we knew this was exactly where we wanted to be — among other independently owned businesses that give Greenwich Village its unique character.”
The store will showcase a variety of programming including performances, art exhibitions and community events and will also offer 60-minute delivery within New York.

Brother-in-Law Surprises Groom in Wedding Dress During Couple’s First Look: ‘It Was So Funny!’

Heidi Zherelyev, of Tempe, Arizona, has always been a prankster. So she just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get a laugh out of Val Zherelyev before they wed on June 30.

For the couple’s first look — just before they said their “I dos” in a sweet ceremony at The Gathering Place — Heidi enlisted the help of her older brother, Eric Dodds, to slip into a wedding dress, stand in her place, and surprise her unsuspecting husband-to-be. Photos of the funny moment showed Val laughing with a shocked expression when he saw Dodds in the white, form-fitting gown and brown tennis shoes.

“I was totally convinced it was gonna be Heidi. As I turned around, it was just so unexpected. It took me about five or six seconds to process what was happening. It was just so funny,” Val, 26, tells PEOPLE. “I’ve known Eric almost 10 years … seeing him like that was totally out of his character. It was hilarious.”

Heidi says she and her friend Chelsea had been cooking up the prank for several months before the big day, intending for the joke to “break the ice and get rid of the wedding-day jitters.” Chelsea even lent her own wedding dress from her big day for the joke, and Dodds didn’t join in on the fun until the day of the ceremony, Heidi, 25, says.

“I sprung it on him last minute,” Heidi recalls. “He was a little apprehensive at first, but of course he obliged. Because he’s my big brother and he has to. Once he started putting on the dress, he transformed into the character of the bride.”

She adds: “He had fun with it. We were making jokes. He was putting on my deodorant and perfume so he’d smell more girly.”

In the silly shots, Eric is shown playfully touching the gown. And he and Val even posed for a wedding photo of their own.

“I’ve never seen him do anything remotely close to something like that,” Val tells PEOPLE. “Being a big brother, he kind of stepped up. I was anxious to see … and having that happen threw everything off the rails for a second. But then it put the cherry on top of the day.”

The photos quickly made their way around the interview, amassing thousands of “likes” on Facebook since they were first posted last week.

But Heidi says Dodds still doesn’t understand just how “famous” he is as a result of the viral photos.

“He’s in disbelief,” Heidi says of her brother. “He hasn’t even really seen how far this has spread. We tried to explain to him … girls are even asking who the guy in the dress is. He can’t believe that something so silly and normal for our family, that people think it’s so great.”

She adds: “He’s always been such a good older brother to me. This was just natural of him to help his little sister out and make her wedding day the best that he possibly could and do his part, as silly as it may have been..”

First Lady Melania Trump Makes an Entrance at Blenheim Palace Wearing a Yellow J. Mendel Gown

First Lady Melania Trump made a dramatic entrance wearing a pale yellow J. Mendel gown at tonight’s black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace.
The evening host British Prime Minister Theresa May also appeared to take the dress code seriously, wearing a sleeveless red gown with a noticeably high slit. Her husband, Philip, like President Trump, kept things basic in a traditional tuxedo.
A different version of FLOTUS’ pleated dress was available in J. Mendel’s Madison Avenue store this spring in another shade. At the request of the First Lady’s stylist Herve Pierre, the label’s designer Gilles Mendel created one especially for tonight’s dinner at the country estate that was Winston Churchill’s birthplace. The choice of pale yellow, a favorite color of Queen Elizabeth II, was intentional and was meant to “pay homage” to HRH, according to Pierre.
The Trumps, joined by the Mays, ascended the red-carpeted steps of Blenheim Palace to two-folded fanfare — protests outside the palace and a military ceremony featuring a performance of the “Liberty Fanfare” by bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh guards. A three-course meal will be served to guests, who include a number of prominent British business leaders. After the dinner, the Trumps will travel to the U.S.

Now, to mark this shift in direction and the brand’s 40th anniversary, the German label is planning its first runway show during New York Fashion Week, in a bid to highlight its international appeal and speak to a broader audience.
“Given all our activities around the refreshing of our brand, we felt that this was a fantastic moment to go out and join an international fashion week. We decided to go to New York because the U.S. is one of our core markets; we have been there since day one. We have a strong retail presence in the country and very strong relationships with some of the best department stores,” said Iris Epple-Righi, the brand’s chief executive officer. “We need to show the brand to a wider audience, which we wouldn’t have been able to [achieve] if we were to only do a presentation.”

Kris Van Assche Unveils First Design for Berluti on Instagram

Having teased Berluti’s new visual identity with a fly poster campaign during men’s fashion week in June, Kris van Assche is the latest designer to unveil his first looks for a new house at a wedding.

The incumbent designer at Berluti revealed on Instagram the custom-made wedding outfits for French writer and director Samuel Benchetrit, who married French singer and actress Vanessa Paradis in an intimate ceremony on Saturday.
The groom was seen in a dark blue suit at the town hall of Saint-Simeon, which is 60 kilometers west of Paris, while van Assche also showed a white tuxedo on image feed.

The bride opted for a vintage white dress and veil for the civil ceremony before donning a Chanel outfit for the evening party. Paradis’ daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, spotted in a pale-yellow spaghetti strap dress, matched her mother’s hairstyle.
Kim Jones had similarly revealed his first design for Dior Homme at a wedding. David Beckham wore it at the royal nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Gabriela Artigas & Company Opens First Retail Store on Melrose Avenue

Gabriela Artigas & Company, the 10-year-old Los Angeles-based jewelry brand that wholesales in more than 70 brick-and-mortar stores globally, has opened its first retail store at 7970 Melrose Avenue, a stone’s throw from Reformation, G-Star, Adidas Originals, Revolve showroom, Fred Segal and Jonathan Adler.
Influenced by their roots in Mexico City, sisters Gabriela and Tere Artigas, who serve and designer and director of sales, respectively, founded the line, which ranges from delicately minimalist earrings to bold architectural necklaces and bracelets, in 2008. The company formerly occupied a studio and private showroom space nearby, but when water damage forced them to move, they found the Melrose space and decided to try retail.

“We’ve learned so much about our customer over the last decade that we felt confident enough to present our own space,” said the designer.
The 850-square-foot store is a design collaboration between the Artigas sisters and their friends Tatum Kendrik of Studio Hus; Hillary Taymour of contemporary apparel line Collina Strada; and their brother, Alex Artigas of Artless Corporation, who custom designed the mid-century modern and minimalist-style furniture.
