Retailers Hail Return of Tailoring, Bold Color at London Men’s Week

LONDON — The light men’s wear schedule for spring gave retailers a chance to deep-dive into emerging trends and give emerging talent a chance to shine. Craig Green, Stefan Cooke and Martine Rose were among the darlings of the three-day showcase, with retailers lauding their bold designs and strong aesthetic.
“Craig Green’s collection was a glorious, uplifting, colorful expansion on a signature style that he has really defined,” said Bruce Pask, men’s wear fashion director of Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, who also talked about the increasing influence of tailoring on the London runways.
Simon Longland, general merchandise manager for men’s wear and sports at Harrods, also noted the new focus on tailored looks. “There were celebrations of modern tailoring at its finest, generously cut and in a sleek style. This was a key feature that ran through several shows,” he said.
Here, retailers talk about some of the London highlights.

All Hail the Stand-alone Men’s Showcase

PARIS — Whoever said fashion was fickle? At the opening of one of the most highly anticipated Paris men’s weeks in history, could the conscious uncoupling of a cluster of the industry’s most influential brands returning to stand-alone show formats for men’s trigger an about-turn from other players aboard the coed movement? And could the shift indicate that the coed format on many levels is not working out?
Among the switchers adding major clout to the week, which opened Tuesday, Givenchy, Jil Sander and Celine will present the first stand-alone men’s shows under their respective creative directors — Clare Waight Keller, Luke and Lucie Meier and Hedi Slimane — with the latter marking the brand’s first men’s show.
Paris newcomer J.W. Anderson has also returned to a separate showcase for men’s.
“We observe that after testing the formula, several brands [are going] back to stand-alone shows in order in their view to more clearly value each of the two collections,” noted Ralph Toledano, president of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode.
It’s a move that’s drawn the collective thumbs-up from men’s editors and buyers. But with the coed juggernaut already well in motion, the future of the dedicated men’s fashion

Mom Suffers Severe Bruises After Protecting Baby from Hail Storm: ‘I Covered Her with My Body’

An Australia mom was covered in black and blue bruises this week after she and her young daughter became trapped in a hail storm and she had no choice but to shield the baby with her body, reports say.

Fiona Simpson, 23, told The Project that she wasn’t aware of the weather forecast in Queensland before she decided to take her grandmother and 4-month-old daughter, Clara, to a coffee shop on Thursday. When severe rain started picking up, Simpson pulled over to the side of the road, she wrote in a Facebook post. That’s when it started to hail.

“The back window, where Clara was, the whole back window just blew out … glass went everywhere through the car,” the told The Project. “So I took off my seatbelt, climbed through the back and just laid on top of her.”

The hail pelted Simpson’s back, leaving her with bruising to her back, arms and her face. She shared photos of her damaged skin in the Facebook post, writing, “I covered my infant with my body to stop her from getting badly injured.”

“I know I’ll be sore tomorrow,” she added in the post. “I’m just so relived that my daughter and grandmother are alright.”

She added that she’s learned her lesson and will never drive in a hail storm again. In a follow-up post, Simpson wrote that she and Clara were home safe Thursday night. Her grandmother is recovering at a hospital.

“At the end of the day, all that matters is that we’re alive,” she told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. “A car can be replaced and bruises can heal, and we’re just all safe right now.”

Simpson told The Project that Clara only suffered a few bumps and bruises. After the incident, she took the baby to the hospital where Clara was “happy and smiling and giggling and playing.”

“She’ll be alright. She hasn’t even really noticed, to be honest,” Simpson said of her daughter. “We’ll all be fine. We’re tough.”

Hail Mary! Broncos Fan Sacked By Security Guard On Christmas

The Denver Broncos got a big lump of coal on Christmas Day when the Kansas City Chiefs gave ‘em a good ol’ fashioned American drubbing ― they lost 33-10, and even my mom was embarrassed for them. But it was a Broncos fan who suffered the worst sack of the game.

With a few seconds left in the third quarter on Sunday, a Kansas City security guard deployed a diving, crushing tackle on the fan as he ran across the field.

During the national broadcast of the game, Westwood One radio’s Kevin Harlan celebrated the sack with a hilarious play-by-play (watch and listen here).

“Merry Christmas, my friend!” Harlan exclaimed, after predicting that the downed fan would spend the night in jail.

Luckily, there are a lot more recordings of Harlan calling play-by-plays when fans take the field. Take the Jets game earlier this month:
