Bridget Foley’s Diary: For Derek Lam, the Future Is Contemporary

“It was kind of like, which child do you choose?”
Ultimately the answer came with clarity for Derek Lam and his business partner/chief executive officer and husband, Jan Hendrik-Schlottmann. The two confirmed to WWD that they are shuttering the Derek Lam Collection business to focus on the Derek Lam 10 Crosby contemporary brand that now accounts for 70 percent of their company’s overall business. Last week the men informed their major retail partners that the current pre-fall collection, which completed shipping this month, will be the label’s last, at least for the foreseeable future.
Lam said they were “putting the collection on hiatus,” but the move sounded definitive as he and Schlottmann discussed it, and their company’s redirected plans, over lunch at the Nomad Hotel last week.
Despite the designer’s “which child” characterization, the decision sounded less “Sophie’s Choice” than pragmatic business move, made not in emotionally wrought haste but after careful consideration over the past two or three years. It allows the partners to focus on the contemporary brand that has been on an upward growth trajectory. Lam noted, too, a bit wistfully, that from a creative standpoint, these days the contemporary arena is less fraught, more fun and allows for greater

Kering Negotiating Lease for Saint Laurent’s Future Industrial Complex

SAINT LAURENT’S TUSCAN HUB: Kering is said to be negotiating the lease of a building in Scandicci, outside Florence, for its Saint Laurent brand, according to a note issued by the Italian town’s municipality.
CDP Investimenti, which is part of the Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, a financial company controlled by the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance, has initiated exclusive negotiations with the French luxury group to lease the Palazzo delle Finanze in Scandicci. The cement, three-story building dates back to the 1991 to 1994 period and covers almost 310,000 square feet. It was meant to house the Center of the Ministry of Finance, but it has never been fully finished or used.
Kering had no comment on Friday.
According to the note, a change of destination of the building has been approved, and it can be recovered and destined to production activities.
Local media speculate that Compagnie Financière Richemont was also eyeing the building and the note, without naming the group, said CDP had received another offer by a company “operating in the luxury sector at an international level.”
Mayor Sandro Fallani said the goal is to “save a neglected [location] and to transform it in a unique development opportunity that would bring employment, excellence

Future of Luxury Discussed at Sole 24 Ore Summit

MILAN — What’s the future of luxury? That’s the major question that Gerd Leonhard, future strategist and chief executive officer of The Futures Agency, tried to answer with the speech he gave on Wednesday in Milan during the Luxury Summit organized by the 24 Ore Business School, in collaboration with economic newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore.
“Millennials and the Generation Z expect very specific things from companies: a holistic business model, circular economy and the respect of human rights,” said Leonhard, who put the focus on embracing technology while preventing any sort of de-humanization. “Passion, persuasion, imagination and storytelling are essential to the future and they cannot be achieved through technology and machines.”
In addition, Leonhard highlighted those he thinks will be the luxuries of tomorrow: off-line, privacy; not exponential growth, and experiences.
The idea of experience is at the center of the strategy that Giovanni Tamburi, president and ceo of investment merchant bank Tamburi Investment Partners, is developing with Italian retailer OVS, which operates 1,700 stores. In March, TIP invested 74.9 million euros in the company, becoming its main shareholder with a 22.7 percent share.
“We want to move from the idea of purchase to the concept of experience,” said Tamburi. “Amazon can

Fendi Goes Back to the Future in China

SHANGHAI — It’s been 12 years, or one full zodiac cycle, since Fendi last held a show in China. Back then in 2007, it was a show-stopping spectacle held atop the Great Wall. On Friday evening, the brand returned to the country to stage its first co-gender show, although with a very different tact.
“The location of tonight is the opposite of what we chose that time,” said creative director Silvia Venturini Fendi. She was reclining at the lounge at The Middle House a few hours prior to the event, which would reprise its fall 2019 men and women’s collections.
“Last time we brought our European spirit, which is linked to tradition and heritage,” she explained, “which is why we chose the most historical monument there is in the country. Tonight, we’re focusing on the new, and the space is out of this world to me — it’s like being in a white spaceship.”
That venue was the Powerlong Museum, where a slick futuristic winding ramp that spread over multiple floors acted as the runway, recalling the spiral interior of the Guggenheim. Actor Timmy Xu opened the show, which added 15 new looks — 10 women’s and five men’s. Although not purposefully done,

The new platform, A Future World, will focus on science, technology and pop culture and feature interviews, films and discussions on sustainability.
“Climate change is finally a topic of conversation that’s at the top of our news feeds and around dinner tables, but most crucially, on our streets. This is a movement that has been driven by youth, a generation determined to pass on the planet to the children they haven’t yet had,” said Thomas Gorton, digital editor of Dazed Media.
The official platform will launch later this year but its first installment, which launched today, features an interview with Greta Thunberg, a teenage climate activist and Nobel Peace prize nominee, speaking about school strikes and protesting to combat climate change.
In the interview, Thunberg talks about her biggest environmental concerns. “Once we pass a certain point, there is no going back.

FIT Students Make Strong Statements in 2019 Future of Fashion Show

NEW YORK — Protection from both the elements and the news of the day was how one judge described many of the looks that paraded down the runway at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s 2019 Future of Fashion Runway show.
The show, held Thursday night at FIT, showcased some 99 looks from this year’s students graduating from the school’s Fashion Design BFA program.
In addition to featuring knitwear, sportswear, intimate apparel, special occasion and children’s wear on the runway, this year FIT introduced a Street Style and Athletics Capsule Collection that was presented at the end of the show.
The show, professionally produced by Jack Rich, is supported by a $ 2 million, multiyear gift from FIT alumnus Calvin Klein through the Calvin Klein Family Foundation, as well as the company he founded, Calvin Klein Inc. The show was also supported by Brother International Corp., which supplied FIT with more than $ 100,000 worth of sewing, embroidery and electronic cutting machine products.
The presentation was chockablock with craftsmanship and embellishments, including a chunky handknit coat; a hand-printed bomber jacket; a reflective puffer jacket; a “spaceman” sweater, and a gray industrial felt dress.

Jason Wu, Shu Qi, Bing, Gemma Chan and Yue-Sai Kan Celebrate China’s Past and Future

The state of China’s economy is tied to great debate, but attendees at Wednesday night’s China Fashion Gala focused on what’s next.
Jason Wu, Vogue China’s Angelica Cheung, actress-model Shu Qi, Esquel Group’s Dee Poon and other honorees were swarmed by well-wishers before the seated dinner at The Plaza hotel in Manhattan. The masked musician Bing, “Crazy Rich Asians” actress Gemma Chan and a bevy of models like Xiao Wen and Shu Pei upped the wattage, while Yue-Sai Kan tried to help direct traffic on the red carpet. Presented by China Institute and Kan’s China Beauty Charity Fund, the event put a forward spin on China, but that involved acknowledging its past.
Kan said, “Before I started working for China about 40 years ago, China had no fashion at all because it was just out of Communism. No one was wearing fashion. Forget about designers — 40 years ago, there was no fashion, no nothing. There has been a huge change. It is simply amazing. Forty years ago, we never would have imagined having a Chinese Fashion Gala in America.”

Grailed Founder on Future of the Men’s Fashion ‘Movement’

Men’s fashion has changed a lot in the past decade, and Arun Gupta sees it changing still.
Led by a young male consumer obsessed with streetwear, a new interest in fashion has led the popular success of sites like Grailed, which Gupta founded in 2013 as a marketplace and community platform for “super enthusiasts,” like himself. But already the culture is moving beyond streetwear.
“The men’s clothing movement, it being acceptable for men to care more about the clothes they wear, has been building for the past 10 years,” Gupta said. “But streetwear is the last phase of it.”
Already on Grailed, he said the inventory is about evenly split between streetwear and fashion, possibly a sign that the realm is cooling off a bit. And then there’s the split between the two types of fashion consumers Gupta is seeing.
“One is the consumer who buys to wear it, then there’s the consumer buying to flip it,” Gupta said. “It’s very prevalent in sneakers and now very prevalent in streetwear and it’s pretty unique to the ecosystem.”
He compared the level of resale with a brand like Celine, where new items have been slow to appear on Grailed and a brand like Supreme, which shows

STREET SIGNS: Renowned Retools, Reemerges Ready for Future

All it takes is one item to help propel a brand forward. John Dean knows that feeling well.
The founder and chief executive officer of Los Angeles-based streetwear brand Renowned started his company when he was still in Ohio in high school, selling a $ 10 shirt with a somewhat crudely drawn “Renowned” on it. It wasn’t until a T-shirt he sent to Chris Brown’s stylist ended up being worn by Brown on the cover of Nylon in 2013 that the brand gained notoriety.
“I didn’t know how the game worked where brands send boxes and boxes of clothes to celebrities,” Dean said. “I sent one T-shirt. I didn’t know any better, but he wore it on the cover of Nylon. It really caused a spark. We went from not knowing what wholesale was to being in 20 stores.”
He ultimately decided to stop studying business marketing his junior year of college, opting instead to drive four days to Los Angeles to focus on building his business. Brown continued to wear Renowned and, in 2015, the two teamed for the rapper’s “Between the Sheets” tour, for which Dean designed all the merchandise, in addition to Brown’s onstage pieces.

The Mills Remembers Hong Kong’s Textile Past and Promotes Its Future

HONG KONG — Like a lot of children who grow up in magnate families, Vanessa Cheung wasn’t so sure she wanted to work for the family business.
Cheung’s grandfather, Chen Din Hwa, founded Nan Fung Group as a textiles business in 1954. It was the days before Mainland China had opened up as an option for global manufacturing and Chen’s business grew quickly, earning him a place in the billionaires’ club and the nickname the “king of cotton yarn.” At its textiles operations height, Nan Fung employed more than 3,000 people to operate in their mills, producing up to 32.5 million pounds of yarn a year.
But the industry migrated across the border into China proper in the Eighties — lured by cheap labor and other costs at a fraction of the price — and Nan Fung shifted gears, focusing instead on developing a property empire across East Asia. The textiles operations faded away and by the time Cheung, who had embarked on a career as a landscape architect, was convinced to join Nan Fung, three of the former six mills the company owned had been turned into residential units, and the other three simply were used as warehouse space.
It was those three

Royal College of Art Gets Ready for the Future

LONDON — The Royal College of Art, the London-based art and design university that nurtured the likes of Tracey Emin, Christopher Bailey and Erdem Moralioglu, is in the process of future-proofing itself with new academic buildings, curricula and scholarship funds.
The British institution, which was founded in 1837, announced a series of ambitious plans that will see it move from “the paradigm of the 20th-century art school to a 21st-century trans-disciplinary graduate school.”
The plans, which are part of a five-year campaign dubbed Generation RCA, will include the renovation of its Kensington site as well as the building of a new state-of-the-art building in Battersea, located opposite its existing campus in the area. The new site will be designed by the architects Herzog & de Meuron and will aim to facilitate a more modern way of working and teaching with ample room for open studio spaces and labs, that will also encourage cross-pollination between courses.
It will be ready to welcome students by 2021 and it will be funded by the government which has made a one-off funding contribution of 54 million pounds to the RCA campaign, alongside a philanthropic donation of 15 million pounds made by the Sigrid Rausing Trust, a British

Do Men’s Fashion Weeks Have a Future?

The rise of genderless fashion and coed shows are sparking questions over the future of men’s fashion weeks.
According to data from Launchmetrics, the Media Impact Value — a quantitative number generated by an algorithm to measure the impact of relevant media placements — of men’s showcases around the world has been constantly diminishing as big names exit in favor of coed shows held during the women’s shows. Brands are also putting more focus on communicating one unified message across their men’s and women’s wear departments.
Data gathered during the spring 2019 events last June in New York and London showed they have been lagging behind in terms of the buzz created across print, digital and social media, generating 2.1 million euros and 5.8 million euros, respectively, in earned media impact value.
Men’s showcases in Florence, Milan and Paris, on the other hand, whose schedules are filled with big brand names, continue to hold on to their relevance.
Florence and Milan generated a combined media impact value of 49.4 million euros, while Paris Men’s Fashion Week generated 57.8 million euros.

Report: Fashion’s Future Entails AI, Inclusivity and Environmentalism

As the world — and fashion — becomes increasingly automated, mindful design will be gaining ground across the board.
Dissecting some of the trends examined in Fjord’s Trends 2019 report, cofounder and chief client officer Mark Curtis pointed to three key ones — the Inclusivity Paradox, Synthetic Realities and the Last Straw — that should affect the fashion industry in the months ahead. Founded in 2001, Fjord, a design and innovation consultant business, culled information from 1,000 designers working in its studios in 28 cities across the world.
Fjord’s latest report noted such advancements as how British and U.S scientists are engineering an enzyme that eats plastic to fight pollution and how Gumdrop has collaborated to design a Gumshoe, which is made from gum scraped off the streets of Amsterdam. In March, a driverless shuttle bus designed by minimalist Japanese retailer Muji, in collaboration with Sensible 4, will hit Helsinki streets. This concept of brands with no history in mobility integrating it into their primary service layer is something Fjord researchers expect to see more of. Nike, for example, introduced a curbside pick-up service at its Melrose Avenue concept store in Los Angeles.
Partially fueling such interest is the United Nations’ prediction that

Asos Streamlines, Updates the Future

The Asos men’s wear presentation Monday night at Hotel Hugo was a legit scene. A surly lobby attendant seemed to derive more pleasure from confiscating guests’ drinks than a TSA agent. “Finish it or get rid of it,” he barked at an editor waiting on line for the cramped elevator. Anyone who failed for whatever reason to get their hand stamped was assumed to be sneaking into the venue by this deputy-in-training. “Nobody gets in without a stamp,” he said. “You gotta go back.”
When the elevator opened onto Bar Hugo, a copper-accented room with a view on the lower level of a bi-floor roof concept, the crowd was pulsing, aided by the freely flowing libations. A narrow staircase led to Azul on the actual rooftop, where tribes of enthusiasts of the brand were engaged in a more raucous dance.
Ten models wearing designs representing Asos’ spring 2019 collection, called “The Future Is Now,” stood or sat on a makeshift platform, the new-age fabrics of their garments shimmering in the sun against the silver towers of the New York skyline, which created a beautiful and serene backdrop for the rooftop event and a counterpoint to the frenetic scene at the bar.

Why Marvel Has Us Excited for the Future of SHIELD

As a longtime Marvel Comics reader, this week was one of mixed emotions. On the one hand, it’s great seeing one of my favorite characters, Black Panther, getting such a bold overhaul in his new series. On the other, the release of Invincible Iron Man #600 (check out my review here) officially brought an end to writer Brian Michael Bendis’ Marvel career. Bendis has been a hugely influential force at Marvel for most of the past two decades, and it’s still strange to think of the company moving forward without him. The silver lining, though, is that he left Marvel with one final parting gift before making the jump to DC. Even as Bendis closes the door on Tony Stark’s current journey, he’s leaving Marvel with the opportunity to revitalize the SHIELD franchise.

How Woolrich Built a Store for the Future

Woolrich, the American brand based in Pennsylvania that was founded in 1830, has been undergoing some internal changes over the past few years, which Andrea Cane, its creative director, outlined at the beginning of his talk.
In 2016, the company merged with WP Lavori in Corso, Italy, its longtime licensee partner, which controls Woolrich Europe, and after that merger they formed Woolrich International. Late last year, Woolrich sold a minority stake in its overall business to Goldwin Inc., a Tokyo-based manufacturer and seller of technical sportswear, to expand the label internationally. Goldwin has purchased shares from WP Lavori in Corso, Woolrich International’s majority shareholder, and has also committed a “dedicated capital increase,” Cane said.
Woolrich previously operated under three divisions: Woolrich Outdoor, a moderately priced outdoors line; Woolrich John Rich & Bros., the contemporary offering, and a collection of wool textiles and blankets that it creates at its mill in Woolrich, Pa. But now everything is marketed under the Woolrich name.
With Goldwin’s investment, Woolrich has focused on infusing technology into its outerwear and building stores to fit this new ethos.
Cane detailed the stores that have inspired him, which ranged from Supreme because of its consistency and exclusivity to L.L. Bean because of its dedication

Luciano Benetton and Oliviero Toscani Map Out Future of Benetton, Fabrica

CASTRETTE DI VILLORBA, Italy — Luciano Benetton is back in full force, and he knows what he wants.
“We are confident, we are working and we know the turnaround won’t be fast, but we hope we will reach that level that we deserve,” said the entrepreneur, 82, in a rare public appearance on Friday. “I am back as representative of the family, flanked by good managers, but the time of the managers is over.”
Although the former chairman of the family-owned group retired in April 2012 and no longer has any operative role, he has decided to take matters into his own hands and has become newly involved in United Colors of Benetton after years of declining sales. Revenues fell 15.4 percent to 1.37 billion euros in 2016, from 1.62 billion euros in 2014.
The entrepreneur is behind Oliviero Toscani’s own return to the group and, on Friday, Benetton showed his support to the photographer by attending the official launch of the new course of Fabrica, the think tank created by the latter in 1994. The two men famously collaborated for years on controversial ad campaigns in the Eighties and Nineties, and Toscani photographed a new communication campaign for the brand that bowed in December,

Future Man EP Seth Rogen on Relatable Video Game Heroes

Future Man executive producer Seth Rogen has a lot to say about his and Evan Goldberg’s new action comedy series coming to Hulu. The series about janitor and world-ranked gamer Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson) being recruited by warriors from the future to help save the world has legs in action and comedy, but also in science fiction and a little bit of drama.

“When I watch it, it’s completely unlike anything I’ve seen on television before. I hope people think that’s a good thing. Or they’ll just be like, ‘What the f**k did these people do?'”

Nailing the tone has been tricky for Rogen. He told IGN an important thing for this series is how it needs to have a lot of stakes to it while being funny. Future Man is a comedy, yes, but it has what Rogen calls a “real” plot, meaning it’s serialized. “We’re not the first people to have done it

Fear of God’s Jerry Lorenzo on the Future of Luxury Streetwear

As much as Jerry Lorenzo operates outside of the fashion industry — he doesn’t hold shows, doesn’t present in line with the seasonal calendar and has no formal training as a designer — he’s managed to infiltrate the system by producing special product he believes is missing from the market.
He’s also managed to create and profit from an aesthetic that works in luxury settings and more mass environments — see the merchandise he designed with Justin Bieber and his collaborations with PacSun and Vans.
In a conversation with WWD style director Alex Badia, Lorenzo spoke about why he thinks his line has been able to break through and what he thinks the future holds for the luxury streetwear category. Here, excerpts from the conversation.
WWD: How did you start your business?
Jerry Lorenzo: I was living in Los Angeles. We have a Garment District downtown and you can make anything you want, whether it’s a couch or a long T-shirt. I was trying to find solutions for my own wardrobe because there were things I couldn’t find on the shelves and I figured why don’t I go downtown and make what I want.

‘Disrobed’ Author Syl Tang Discusses How Clothing Can Predict the Economy, World Issues and the Future

TANG UNCOVERS FASHION: With her new book “Disrobed: How Clothing Predicts Economic Cycles, Saves Lives and Determines the Future,” Syl Tang puts a lot of stock in clothing.
In the 12 years she freelanced for the Financial Times, she frequently touched upon a similar topic but didn’t have the time to explore it due to word count restrictions. For example, she once wrote a piece about jewelry in the Afghan world and how the department of defense funded some of these companies that were started by women. “But when I would talk to people about linking apparel, jewelry or wearables to other topics, I would see their eyes glaze over a little bit. They wouldn’t connect the dots so I knew I needed to write a book about it,” she explained.
The underlying theme is how “behind the clothing, there is this understanding of the world,” she said. To that point, the cover art for the Rowman & Littlefield book is an unzipped hoodie on a globe of the world. Through her writing, she explores the role that clothing plays in natural disasters, climate change, terrorism, geopolitics and agribusiness.
One element the author found most surprising was “how much research there is supporting

‘Juice’ Director Says We Can’t Let Future Generations Sleep On Classic Black Films

Twenty-five years since the release of “Juice,” Ernest R. Dickerson is proud that his directorial debut has stood as a cultural staple in America.

This month, Paramount Home Media Distribution will commemorate the film’s anniversary with a special release of a Blu-ray disc. Starring Tupac Shakur, Omar Epps, Khalil Kain and Jermaine Hopkins ― with cameos by Samuel L. Jackson and Queen Latifah ― the powerful drama follows the lives of four teenage friends in pursuit of power and respect in their Harlem neighborhood as they grapple with the trials of inner-city life.

Inspired by his adolescent years growing up in Newark, New Jersey, Dickerson ― who broke into the industry as Spike Lee’s cinematographer ― tells HuffPost that he wanted the drama to accurately portray the obstacles young black men and boys face living in America.

“It took about nine years to get the film made. But it grew from out of several places,” he said. “I wanted to talk about how kids were growing up in society and we were horrified by that. And so, in wanting to craft a thriller and a film noir around 16-, 17-year-old antagonists, it just felt like that was the way to go and the best story to tell. Peer pressure was always gonna be a part of it.”

The commemorative release will feature new and vintage interviews with members of the cast and crew, never-before-released footage and the original film’s alternate ending.

“Juice” marked Shakur’s first major starring film role. He beat out the likes of actor Donald Faison and fellow rapper Treach for the role of the troubled, gun-toting teen Bishop. Shakur’s seminal performance was applauded by fans and film critics.

“He understood the pain inside Bishop and could express that in his acting,” Dickerson recalled. “He made Bishop a more four-dimensional character in that he knew that this anger came from someplace. The anger came from a deep hurt.”

“Part of it was the experience of having to see [Bishop’s] father brutalized and traumatized in prison; that’s one of the things that we end at in the film. That’s the thing that Pac brought, too. When he came to the audition, people believed he was Bishop. And he believed he was Bishop, too,” he said.

The filmmaker added that prior to Shakur’s untimely death in 1996, he was “hoping to find another project” to work on with the rapper-actor.

With its January 1992 opening, the film debuted at No. 2 at the box office. It earned over $ 8 million in its opening weekend and has grossed $ 20.1 million domestically to date, according to Box Office Mojo.

Despite its relatively low earnings, Dickerson says it’s imperative to reintroduce black cult classic films ― such as “Juice,” “Boyz n the Hood” and “Menace II Society” ― to enlighten a new generation of viewers. 

“These films are a part of our cultural heritage,” the filmmaker said. “And we have to make sure that they’re there for future generations to experience, and to enjoy and learn from. These are not throwaway films, this is the cultural heritage of America, and we need to make sure that we preserve that.”

“Not just these films, but all films. Films are important,” he continued. “It’s one of the greatest art forms of the 20th and 21st century. People need to take film much more seriously and the preservation of film much more serious.”

The special 25th anniversary edition of “Juice” is now available on Blu-ray and DVD. It will also be released on Digital HD on June 13.

A$AP Bari on the Future of Vlone

“I’m not into stores,” said A$ AP Bari, a member of the A$ AP Mob who works with A$ AP Rocky and Edison Chen on Vlone, a highly sought-after streetwear line. “I don’t shop at them.”
Bari, who was in New York on the night of April 6 to celebrate the opening of the Tupac by Vlone pop-up on Ludlow Street, is into experiences — a buzzword that’s often thrown around by retailers but rarely realized. He currently has no interest in selling his pieces at stores, but he’s open to working with them.
“I would do collaborations with different stores, but for them to sell my clothes? No.”
Over the past year, Vlone has gained a following for its graphic product and pop-up retail concepts that are held in various locations — Miami for Art Basel, Austin, Texas, for South by Southwest and Harlem, because that’s where Bari and Rocky grew up. And Vlone has collaborated with brands including Off-White, No Vacancy, Fragment and Nike; a pair of Nike x Vlone Air Force Ones sold for $ 94,800 on eBay.
“I want to do things for the right reasons,” said Bari. “And most of my collaborations come out of friendships.”

Ciara’s Ex Future Pops Up on the Sidelines at Her Husband Russell Wilson’s NFL Game

Ciara‘s ex Future had fans talking when he popped up on the sidelines to root for his hometown team, the Atlanta Falcons, as they faced off against the Seattle Seahawks in Georgia on Saturday afternoon.

A photo was taken of the hip hop artist and shared on Twitter on Saturday, with the caption, “Falcons got future Hendrix on the sideline they’re liable to win by 21.”

For the uninitiated, Ciara is married to Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

It’s unclear if Ciara was at the game but she did share a photo of her fellow pregnant pal, Seahawks DeShawn Shead’s wife Jessica Shead, just before the game on an airplane.

“We Were Talking and Our Babies Were Talking Too,” she wrote in the post, which showed her and Shead’s growing bellies.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

And while Ciara and Future may have been engaged and in love at one point, they are far from friendly exes. After Future blasted her on Twitter last January and claimed she was preventing the rapper from seeing their 19-month-old son Future Zahir, a source close to the singer told PEOPLE the claims were not true.

“Ciara has said that Future uses the situation to promote his music by staying in the press using her name,” said the source of the exes, who ended their engagement in August 2014.

In a series of tweets, Future, 33, called Ciara a “bitch” with “control problems” who forced him to “go through lawyers to see baby future,” adding that he pays his ex “15k a month.”

Less than one month later, in February, the star sued her ex for $ 15 million in a slander and libel lawsuit.

In the court papers obtained by PEOPLE, Ciara pointed out several interviews in which Future accused her of using their child in publicity stunts and claimed he’d had at least 19 visitations with baby Future (the rapper claimed in a series of tweets his ex was withholding their son from him).

“She just wants what’s best for her and her baby,” a source close to Ciara told PEOPLE. “She is a really great mom. Baby Future is attached to her and a super smart kid. She’s really patient and loving with him.”

According to TMZ, Ciara dropped the libel claim in October, but is still suing for “false light.”

Aside from the recent drama with her ex, Ciara has had a happy first year of marriage. She wed Wilson in July in an English castle and the couple announced in October that they were expecting their first child together.

The couple hasn’t been shy about showing their support for one another. After their nuptials last year, Wilson reflected on the best moment of the big day.

“I’ll tell you, the best part of the wedding was watching her walk down the aisle. I had so many , but to see her gracefully walk down the aisle in that long train … and to realize I was going to spend the rest of my life with her gives me chills,” Wilson said shortly after their nuptials. “Ever since the first day I met her, she’s always been, honestly, my best friend. We’ve been so close.”

GANT was founded in 1949 in New Haven, Connecticut. It has since expanded globally beyond menswear into other market segments creating a name for itself as a premier lifestyle brand with aims to increase its reach by 2020 under the new direction of global CEO Patrik Nilsson. GANT has originally been associated with effortless Ivy League style and quality tailored shirts. In addition to the classic sportswear heritage GANT line they’ve also launched GANT Diamond G and GANT Rugger, contemporary lines reflecting diverse aesthetics.

Back to the earlier simplicity discourse. Tolstoy argued that “the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him.” Students had to start from clean slate. Fangdi Li opted to use the GANT Rugger Indigo denim shirt for her nocturnal vision: draping of the shirt on the body in a linear way over a black hoodie for a restructured silhouette. Teresa Tran kept the focus on layering possibilities. She infused vintage pieces with the GANT shirt that was accented with accessories influenced by the subcultures of the film “This is England”. Sophia Charles drew inspiration from the GANT Instagram account and the French film “La Haine” for her minimalist yet bold version with accessorized with electric red tape. Overall, the results showcased GANT adaptability and immense talent of the Academy students.

The Academy is the only American school with an accredited styling program! It seems like a natural fit for the school and the brand, both of whom focus on quality, innovation and laying a foundation for a more fashionable future. For the creative director Christopher Bastin, it’s all about legacy, “having a legacy is something that sets you apart and gives you authenticity and credibility. And, most importantly, it gives you a platform and security as a brand.” This pioneering collaboration also benefited Fashion Journalism students who were assigned to follow the process closely and report on it via various outlets. Stephan Rabimov, director of Social Media Center and Fashion Journalism, commented: “Opportunities like this benefit all involved. Our students loved working with GANT. We salute the GANT team for their visionary leadership and look forward to providing more professional experiences that are not available at any other institution.”

‘Back to the Future’ director: How we predicted Donald Trump’s Presidency

2016-11-22-1479847824-1509476-ROBERTZEMECKISBACKTOFUTUREII.jpg

‘Back to the Future’ has been all the craze for the last 13 months, ever since October 21, 2015. It has come to be known as “Back to the Future Day”, the date referenced in ‘Back to the Future II’, and it showed us which visions of the future made in the 1989 movie actually came true.

Sure, we know ‘Back to the Future’ was pretty spot on about virtual reality, tablets and even the Cubs winning the World Series (even though they were a year late). But perhaps the biggest prediction was Donald Trump’s Presidency as referenced in the film by Biff Tannen becoming the mayor of Hill Valley.

BTTF director Robert Zemeckis explained to me that the Biff Tannen character was based on Donald Trump but that they didn’t have the audacity to think that Biff could run for President.

But enormous danger still lurks. David R. Boyd, co-chair of Vancouver’s Greenest City initiative, says Journey To The Future is “an imaginative tour de force, blending science, philosophy and fiction into a delightful story about how we can and must change the world.”About the author, Guy DaunceyGuy Dauncey is a futurist who works to develop a positive vision of a sustainable future and to translate that vision into action.

What Back to the Future Got Right… and Wrong

2015-10-21-1445466461-5737418-Peter_Diamandis_Headshot.jpeg

By Peter Diamandis

Twenty-six years ago, Marty McFly and Doc Brown climbed into their time-traveling flying DeLorean and set the controls to the distant future — October 21, 2015 — which happens to be today.

This is a fun blog about the predictions that Back to the Future got right, the predictions they got wrong, and the amazing technologies we have today that they just completely left out.

For a $ 40 million budget, it’s pretty amazing what they achieved. So as you read these correct predictions, think about how you might have profited from these areas if you took action on them 26 years ago.

PREDICTIONS THAT BACK TO THE FUTURE GOT RIGHT

PREDICTIONS THAT “BACK TO THE FUTURE” GOT WRONG

Here are the technologies that aren’t quite here (yet).

Flying cars: While there are a number of companies like Zee.aero, Terrafugia and AeroMobil hard at work, this still may need an XPRIZE to give us the flying car.

Power clothing (self-drying, self-tying shoelaces): While not released, Nike claims it will release a pair of self-tying laces this year (2015) in commemoration of the movie.

Ubiquitous fax machines: For whatever reason, fax machines were a big deal in Back to the Future. They are basically a relic of the past now.

Hoverboards: Though a few companies have rigged gigantic magnets to simulate real life hoverboards, we haven’t found a way to make a practical, scalable version yet…

2015-10-21-1445467409-2920565-BTFFinal.jpg

Mr. Fusion: While many teams are claiming to get close to net-positive energy fusion, no one has yet… and even when they do, it’s unlikely to fit in the back of my car.

Well… a time machine: Though I wish we could all drive DeLoreans rigged with time machines, unfortunately, the laws of physics still prevent us from jumping around the space-time continuum at will.

A FEW AMAZING THINGS WE HAVE TODAY THAT THEY MISSED

So what did Back to the Future (potentially) miss? At least, what amazing technology do we have today that they didn’t highlight?

Rapid, cheap whole genome sequencing and editing: We now have the ability to sequence a full human genome for under $ 1,000. The technology is developing at 3x the rate of Moore’s Law. We now have the ability to cheaply and precisely edit the genome with CRISPR/CAS 9. This will open up a new frontier of health and longevity that will have enormous implications on the future.

3D Printing: You can 3D print just about anything these days from 300 different materials (including plastics, metals, concrete, chocolate and human cells) Complexity is free and scalability is inherent.

Emergence of AI: We are in the early days of Artificial Intelligence. Tens of billions of capital are being poured into an AI “arms race” over the last decade. One fun recent example is Tesla’s “autopilot” software upgrade that just came out. It can drive you autonomously on the highway.

On-Demand Economy: Amazon is working on same-day delivery mechanisms (possibly using drones). Uber has become ubiquitous as the simplest, most reliable way to get around.

GPS: We really take for granted how good the GPS units in our phones really are. They receive up-to-the-second traffic data, route us to the shortest path, and even give us “street view” or satellite imagery to investigate what a place looks like before we get there.

Private Spaceflight and Hyperloop: While Back to the Future flaunted flying DeLoreans, I’m proud of where we are with private spaceflight and the start of Hyperloop.

The Uncanny Predictions ‘Back To The Future II’ Made About 2015

The “Future” is here!

On Wednesday, October 21, Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled from 1985 to 2015 in “Back To The Future II” in order to stop McFly’s son from being imprisoned. The world they arrive in is vastly different from the one they left. “Jaws 19” is showing in movies, cars look like they’re from “The Jetsons,” and for some reason women have really bizarre hairstyles.

Here’s how the film’s version of 2015 stacks up to the one we live in today:

“Original Penguin was the first acquisition we made,” said Oscar Feldenkreis, president and chief operating officer of PEI, in an interview at the company’s New York City offices. “We originally bought it for its strong golf business. But it’s been the fastest-growing brand for our company.”

That Time ‘Gilmore Girls’ Predicted The Future Of Online News

“Gilmore Girls” was a groundbreaking show. It was celebrated for its portrayal of a nuanced relationship between a single mother and daughter, was written in a trademark style and has experienced a major resurgence in popularity in the past year, since coming to Netflix. 

We always knew the show was special, but we didn’t realize how extraordinarily prescient it could be at times. In fact, one of its main characters predicted the future of feel-good news (the kind of thing you’d see on Upworthy today) all the way back in 2005. 

In the show’s sixth season, Lorelai Gilmore expresses her frustration with all of the bad news being reported in the newspaper, then says she plans to start her own publication that’s only for “good” news. 

Sound familiar? It should. Positive-leaning sites like Upworthy, ViralNova and even The Huffington Post’s own Good News page have attracted huge followings in the past few years.

Research shows that exposure to inspirational news can significantly improve your mood – which might explain why these sites have become so popular.

Lorelai’s idea was a good one, and it was years ahead of its time. (Upworthy launched in 2012.) And to think we always considered Rory the smart one!

Ideal for when you want to find the balance between practicality and fashion, these can either be used as a funky under baby vest or a trendy outfit with leggings. Comes carefully gift wrapped in our exclusive Spoilt Rotten Milk Carton packaging. You wouldn?t put chemicals on your skin, so why have chemicals in your baby clothing? Spoilt Rotten have produced a range of baby clothes that are 100% Organic Cotton. No chemicals what so ever it used in our production process. NONE. Our Baby T-Shirts and Baby grows are made from a high quality 100% Organic cotton and abide by The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), The Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) and The Soil Association Why do we choose Organic Cotton at Spoilt Rotten? Did you know that traditional Cotton is the second most pesticide-laden crop in the world? Five of the top nine pesticides used on cotton in the U.S. (cyanide, dicofol, naled, propargite and trifluralin) are well known as dangerous chemicals. Organic Cotton on the other hand is grown in certified pesticide-free and herbicide-free soil using organic farming methods, covered in the Global Organic Textiles Standard. A babies skin is 5 times thinner than our own, allowing toxins to penetrate much more easily. With organic cotton you can be sure that during production no harmful chemicals were used which also makes it less likely to trigger allergies. Organic Cotton is also softer, for your babies skin, as the fibres have not been damaged by the chemicals. The print on the front of the garments are also non-harmful and no chemicals are used. They are all individually printed to order so you can be sure of a high quality standard.
