The MAXXI Museum Holds Fundraising Gala Dinner in Rome

MILAN — The MAXXI, Rome’s Museum of the Arts for the 21st Century, held its annual “Acquisition Gala Dinner” in Rome on Monday.
The fifth-annual fund-raising event, aimed at preserving and improving the museum’s permanent collection, drew more than 500 guests, including Roberta Armani; Nicola and Beatrice Bulgari; Fendi chief executive officer Pietro Beccari, who is leaving the Roman company and will join Dior at the beginning of 2018; Daniel and Florance Guerlain, and Italian entrepreneur Luca Cordero di Montezemolo.

Giovanna Melandri, president of MAXXI Foundation, underscored the importance of the synergies between public institutions and private firms. She also highlighted that in 2016, the museum’s self-financing accounted for 42 percent, while the “Acquisition Gala Dinner” aims to raise private funds.
The attendees were welcomed by an installation created by artist and photographer Michel Comte called “Light” and unveiled for the occasion. The artwork focuses on the global warming issue and features a video projection on the museum’s façade and a sculpture in the lobby.
Inside, a seated dinner — provided by Italian Michelin-starred chef Cristina Bowerman — followed a musical performance by Lebanese musicians Tarek Atoui and Mazen Kerbaj.

Tumi Holds Sale Event to Benefit Petra Nemcova’s Charity

Tumi will hold a 20 percent off event beginning Thursday until Sept. 24 to benefit Happy Hearts Fund, with 5 percent of all proceeds donated to the charity.
Happy Hearts was founded by philanthropist and model Petra Nemcova in 2006 for the purpose of rebuilding schools in areas impacted by natural disasters. She also is a survivor of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Nemcova is Tumi’s brand ambassador.
The brand last year held a similar event, and raised nearly $ 286,000, which was earmarked for both the rebuilding of the Shree Mahendra Higher Secondary School and as a partial contribution for the rebuilding of the Shree Mahendra School, both in Nuwakot, Nepal.
Nemcova, who is in the city for New York Fashion Week, was keeping close tabs on the path of Hurricane Irma this past weekend. She and her family live in Miami, and Nemcova is also a member of All Hands Volunteers, a program partner with Happy Hearts, that had teams on standby — including Nemcova — for deployment with relief efforts.
“We are in the process of determining where we will go and help,” Nemcova said. Her charity has already provided some help to residents affected by Hurricane Harvey and she said the proceeds

What to Watch: Men’s Wear Holds Its Own in Struggling Environment

Historically in men’s wear, the highs are never as high and the lows are never as low as the more-volatile women’s market. That’s been the case this year as well even as men’s manufacturers and retailers struggle to navigate through the same rocky roads affecting the entire fashion world.
As department and large specialty stores battle the big online players, close stores and revamp their mixes, men’s wear isn’t immune to the downturn. But thanks to some must-have fashion pieces coupled with innovative in-store strategies, the second half looks promising for the men’s market.
Tailored Brands, the largest public men’s wear-only retailer with more than 1,500 stores, reported that business stabilized in the first quarter when net earnings increased. Last year, the company, which is still digesting the Jos. A. Bank acquisition from three years ago, closed more than 200 stores as it adjusted its portfolio to better address consumer demand. So while sales were down at its divisions, which include Men’s Wearhouse in the U.S. and Moores in Canada, the company did point to its growing custom business as an area of strength. “Custom is a big growth opportunity for us,” chief executive officer Doug Ewert said in June.

LVMH Holds Start-Up Style Event for Employees

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT: Out to encourage its staff to think like entrepreneurs, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton this weekend staged the inaugural edition of its internal start-up style initiative DARE LVMH, short for Disrupt, Act, Risk to be an Entrepreneur.
The three-day event gathered 60 LVMH employees from across 40 of the group’s houses and based in 15 countries to develop pitches in a WeWork co-working space in the city’s center. They were whittled down from 500 candidatures sent in after a “call for ideas” made by the group to 4,000 of its collaborators.
Each of the 60 talents selected had to present their pitches on Friday. They were then split into 12 teams to develop the ideas that got the top votes from a jury comprised of independent consultants and LVMH executives, including the luxury group’s managing director, Antonio Belloni, and human resources director, Chantal Gaemperle. Each team was joined by an independent coach or mentor from the executive ranks of a range of LVMH houses. Also joining the teams were 20 interns and students from the group’s partnering schools.
Following a final pitching session, three teams were selected by the jury and will be mentored by members of the group’s executive committee to help

WWD Predicts: Fashion Holds Court

As the New York fall collections wind down, there has been a courtly influence — as in Louis XIV and his ilk. Accessories and ready-to-wear have taken cues from the regal accoutrements of various royals, especially those from the 17th and 18th centuries. Perhaps an inspiration from the abundance of exclusive content streaming on services like Netflix and HBO with shows like “Reign,” “Versailles,” “The Crown” and “Game of Thrones.”

Kanye West Holds Yeezy 5 Show in the Dark

The anticipation for Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 5 show is riding high among fashion week-goers. The show, which is taking place at Pier 59 (way more convenient than last season’s Roosevelt Island venue), had scores of fans and paparazzi waiting out front. And while it took team WWD 30 minutes to get through four different security checkpoints, all seems calmer and more organized than West’s September show, which saw the likes of fainting models and peeved guests.

Moana Holds Off Office Christmas Party to Remain Box Office Champ

Disney’s Moana continues to perform well at the domestic box office, claiming the top spot for the third week in a row with $ 18.8 million over the weekend.

The animated film’s domestic total currently stands at an impressive $ 145 million. Disney, which has made more money this year than any company ever, is looking to continue its great 2016 run with the imminent arrival of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on December 16.

Newcomer Office Christmas Party, the R-rated comedy from Paramount starring Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, and T.J Miller, placed second with $ 17.5 million over the weekend. As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, it’s a solid result considering its $ 45 million budget. Paramount is expecting Office Christmas Party to have the same longevity as last year’s Sisters, another R-rated comedy which ended up earning a total of $ 87 million domestically.

Sanyo Shokai Holds Exhibition for 100-Year Trenchcoat

NEW YORK — Sanyo Shokai, the Japanese apparel company founded in 1943 by Nobuyuki Yoshihara, is putting the spotlight on its 100-year coat with an exhibition at 434 Greenwich Street here that runs until Dec. 13.
Titled “Let Your Story Begin,” the exhibition focuses on the journey of a man, which is contrasted with the life span of Sanyo Shokai’s 100-year coat. Life artifacts — a camera, subway map, wallet, passport, etc. — hang from the ceiling and are surrounded by multiple styles of the 100-year trenchcoat at different phases.
“So often now people buy many things and then throw them away,” said Jun Kwon, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Sanyo Shokai in the U.S. “We want people to pass this down to their children and grandchildren.”
The coat line is broken up into two collections: plaid, which features a Sanyo plaid lining under the collar, and plain. Within these collections there are two styles of coats — double and single breasted — that come in three different lengths. The 100-year coat was introduced in Japan three years ago and to the U.S. market shortly after.
According to Kwon, the coat, which is made in Japan, is constructed through 481 processes
