Wanda Ferragamo Remembered in Florence

FLORENCE — Tall candles twinkled in glass vases on the steps in front of the altar in the Santa Trinita church here filled to capacity and surrounding a delicate bouquet of colorful orchids, as a string quartet played Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Ave Verum Corpus.” A month after the death of Wanda Ferragamo at 96, a mass in her memory was held at the 13th-century basilica she helped restore and that stands opposite Palazzo Fini Speroni, headquarters of the Salvatore Ferragamo company.
The moving ceremony reflected Ferragamo and her legacy, attended by her children, Ferruccio, Giovanna, Leonardo and Massimo, their own numerous families and company employees. There were also former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi; the mayor of Florence Dario Nardella; Salvatore Ferragamo chief executive officer Micaela Le Divelec Lemmi and former group ceo Michele Norsa; Carlo Capasa, head of the Italian Camera della Moda; Pitti Immagine ceo Raffaello Napoleone, and the British Ambassador to Italy Jill Morris, as Ferragamo had received the Order of the British Empire recognition.
“My mother had become a grandmother at an early age, at 40, and she preferred to be called zia [aunt in Italian], which led her first grandson

Cos Presents Men’s Capsule Via Wayne McGregor-Choreographed Performance in Florence

LET’S DANCE: What better way to road-test a capsule of men’s wear essentials in movement than a performance based on the subtlety of everyday actions by British choreographer Wayne McGregor?
That was thinking of Karin Gustafsson and Christophe Copin — respectively creative director and newly appointed head of men’s wear at Cos — for bringing to life a soon-to-launch men’s capsule dubbed Soma.
The serene performance, featuring members of McGregor’s company dressed in items from the line, was held on Wednesday in the courtyard of the Istituto Degli Innocenti in Florence, and was followed by a presentation of the capsule at the local Cos flagship. Items included long bias-cut collarless shirts, a minimalist waxed and washed cotton coat with a crisp, papery surface and lightweight tailoring, in a palette limited to white, navy and gray mélange.
A limited quantity of the pieces worn by the dancers went on sale in the Florence store following the event, but the line will launch online internationally in September.
Speaking to WWD, Copin said a lot of fabric research went into the collection, down to “the sound of the fabrics when in movement.” He argued the decision to limit the capsule’s availability to online was to make it

Florence to Bloom During Pitti Uomo

MILAN — “The big Italian and international trade shows have to [involve] the cities more and more,” said Raffaello Napoleone, chief executive officer of Pitti Uomo trade show’s organizer Pitti Immagine on Wednesday.
Napoleone presented the packed schedule of shows, presentations and special projects of the upcoming edition of the Florence-based men’s trade show, which runs June 12 -15. The comments were made because Pitti Uomo is set to be an event not only within the historic Fortezza da Basso location’s walls but throughout the whole city. “We’re really glad that the involvement [of Florence] in what we do in Fortezza da Basso is increasing,” said Napoleone.
On the inaugural day of the trade show, Gucci will unveil two new halls at the Gucci Garden Galleria exhibition space, housed inside the Gucci Garden, with a cocktail event. Opened during January’s edition and located inside the historic Palazzo della Mercanzia in Florence’s Piazza della Signoria, the space also hosts a restaurant curated by the three-Michelin-star chef Massimo Bottura and a store. For the occasion, the shop will showcase a limited-edition capsule collection featuring the illustrations of a new artist tapped by the fashion label for the first time, but whose name is yet to be

Only the Brave Foundation Supports Charity Music Event in Florence

LOVE SONG: Only the Brave Foundation is supporting That’s Live 2018, a charity music event taking place at Florence’s Artemio Franchi soccer stadium on July 21.
In particular, the foundation, established by OTB founder Renzo Rosso, has secured the participation of Courtney Love as the event’s special guest.
Love will sing her “Celebrity Skin” and “Malibu” hits, along with a still undisclosed cover song with guitarist Tad Kubler.
That’s Live 2018 is organized by Rockin’1000, an initiative established in 2015 that brings together 1,000 professional musicians on the same stage.
Part of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the San Patrignano rehab community located in Rimini, in Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region.
“The first time I saw the Rockin’1000 video, I thought, ‘I want to do that!’” said Love, referring to a video, which became viral online, featuring the 1,000 musicians playing Foo Fighters’ “Learn to Fly” song in Cesena in 2015. “The sight and sound of a thousand musicians connecting with their audience in this open, transcultural way was incredible. It reminded me of the early punk scene, with its community centered around diversity and acceptance. And after I learned about Rockin’1000’s and Only the Brave Foundation’s commitment to San Patrignano, a charity dedicated

‘Brady Bunch’ Kids Post Heartwarming Tributes To Florence Henderson

Here’s a story about a lovely lady who made a big difference in the lives of her TV kids.

For years, Florence Henderson offered advice and delivered laughs on “The Brady Bunch.” On Thursday, the world said goodbye to the 82-year-old actress, and it’s clear that Henderson and her “Brady” castmates formed a real family during their time together.

Barry Williams, who played Greg on the show, tweeted that he was “deeply saddened” by the news of her death. 

“Florence was one of the most gracious people I have ever known, Proud to call her Mom and life long friend,” wrote Williams.

Maureen McCormick, aka Marcia Brady, was with Henderson on the “Dancing with the Stars” set only days before her death.

“You are in my heart forever,” she tweeted, along with a photo of herself and Henderson at “DWTS.” 

McCormick shared another post, writing, “Florence Henderson was a dear friend for so very many years & in my <3 forever.”

Actor Christopher Knight, who played Peter, also had a tribute for his TV mom. Knight called Henderson a “dear friend,” adding, “Privileged to have known her and the kindness of her heart.” 

And that’s the way they all became a real Brady Bunch.

Rest in peace, Florence.

Jamie Chung, Rita Ora, Florence Welch and Léa Seydoux Are All Fronting the Hottest Campaigns of Summer

Summer is almost here which means some of your favorite brands are releasing their warm-weather collections — and enlisting some of your favorite stars to model those collections off. Jamie Chung, Rita Ora, Florence Welch, Léa Seydoux and a social media star Cameron Dallas front impressive summer ad campaigns for Banana Republic, Tezenis, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Calvin Klein respectively — and we have all the scoop on the new lines right here.

Jamie Chung and Johannes Huebl for Banana RepublicWard Ivan Rafik and John Hillin

First up, style influencer Jamie Chung stars in Banana Republic’s summer 2016 campaign. She models alongside style ambassador Johannes Huebl (who’s married to that other other style influencer you many know, Olivia Palermo). The shoot is set in Charleston, South Carolina, which was meant to reflect the mood of the collection, which “embraces the art and culture of the soulful region” through playful prints and sophisticated silhouettes. A.k.a. they will be your wear-everywhere pieces all season.

As the world still tries figure out who “Becky with the good hair” is, Rita Ora’s name was swirled into the rumor mill after wearing a Tezenis lemon-print bikini top after Beyoncé Lemonade video aired. Which may have just been inconvenient timing. It was announced she’s fronting the Italian line, Tezenis’ summer collection, so it could have all just been in an effort to support her new brand, not throw Bey’s biggest fans into a frenzy.
