Jet-a-porter Puts the Focus on Dressing for Holiday, Adventures

HOLIDAY READY: Net-a-porter is putting more focus on holiday wear as it looks to answer to the needs of an increasingly global and mobile consumer who is big on experiences, travel and her social media image.
The e-tailer has launched a new category, Jet-a-porter, offering a curated selection of resort, swimwear and ski clothing. According to the company, skiwear has increased by more than half since last year. Given its significant growth trajectory, it made up almost three-quarters of Net’s Cruise 2017 buy.
“We’ve seen major growth year-on-year since launching the sports category, Net-a-sporter, in 2014 and we don’t see this slowing down any time soon,” said Elizabeth von der Goltz, Net’s global buying director.
She said that among the best-selling brands were Fendi, Perfect Moment, best known for their onesies, Moncler Grenoble and the knitwear label Chinti and Parker, which recently created an exclusive capsule for the retailer.

Free Country showed its holiday spirit Tuesday night when it partnered with The Fresh Air Fund to host a night of ice skating at the Rink at Bryant Park.
Some 100 kids and their families joined Free Country chief executive officer Ira Schwartz and five-time Olympic medal-winning gymnast Nastia Liukin for some sliders, cookies and a few circles around the ice.
“This is our way of giving back to kids who might not otherwise have the opportunity to go skating,” Schwartz said.
Free Country also created a limited-edition T-shirt featuring the brand’s new advertising slogan — #GetOutThere — with 100 percent of the proceeds going toward The Fresh Air Fund’s free summer and academic enrichment programs for children from underserved New York neighborhoods. The T-shirt is available in four colors and for sale on the company’s web site and the company has guaranteed a minimum donation of $ 25,000 to the group.

“Like The Fresh Air Fund, we believe in the life-changing potential of the outdoors,” Schwartz said. “Every child should have the opportunity to get outside, and at Free Country we provide high-quality, accessible product that allows you to do just that.”

Fear of God, Maxfield Link for Holiday Pop-up

DAY OF RECKONING: Fear of God and Maxfield have gotten their holiday cheer on with a pop-up installation by the Los Angeles streetwear brand.
The store, located in the gallery space across from Maxfield’s Melrose Avenue location, is the site of the brand’s House of God pop-up in which Fear of God founder Jerry Lorenzo has created a church-inspired installation. Lorenzo and his team brought in a dozen vintage church pews, which face out onto an LED screen playing on a continuous loop about two hours worth of Nineties gospel singers in an effort to create re-create an environment akin to a Southern Baptist church, Lorenzo explained.
It’s about creating something with emotion first and product second, Lorenzo said of how the space was designed.
“I want you to come into the pop-up space and really understand and feel the emotion that drives what I do from a design perspective,” he said. “Fear of God is as much about rock ‘n’ roll as it is hip hop as it is sports as it is influenced by my faith in God. Last year we brought in a 1984 pick-up truck and really turned the space into this early Nineties rock ‘n’ roll basement. We

Milan’s Rinascente Reveals Holiday Windows

MILAN — Luxury department store Rinascente in Milan strengthened its bond with the city’s Teatro alla Scala, also known as La Scala theater, dedicating its holiday windows to six iconic opera performances.
Last year, the store introduced the partnership with La Scala staging Christmas windows inspired by Giacomo Puccini’s opera “Madama Butterfly,” which opened the theater’s season in 2016.
“This edition is particularly interesting because we combined our 100th anniversary with an excursus of the theater’s [last] 100 years,” said Rinascente’s chief executive officer Pierluigi Cocchini, who succeeded Alberto Baldan in February.
“We’re celebrating La Scala but also offering something out of our context, because we sell clothes and cosmetics and these kinds of displays are intriguing for visitors,” he concluded.
This year, Rinascente appointed stage designer Margherita Palli to create its windows and retrace the history of the theater throughout 100 years of opening nights. In particular, Palli conceived the scenography of the theater’s annual opening opera, Umberto Giordano’s “Andrea Chénier,” which will premiere on Thursday evening.
“The windows take the viewer inside the atmosphere of the theater on the nights of great premieres,” Palli said.
Each display showcases an artistic installation representing La Scala’s signature interior elements — as the red tapestry and chandeliers —

MCM Launches Holiday Campaign Aimed at U.S. Market

MCM continues to ramp up its presence in the U.S. The Seoul-based, German-born accessories label has launched a holiday video campaign geared at young consumers.
The party scene campaign, called “The Give & Get Down,” features model and activist Barbie Ferreira, dance duo Les Twins and singer Kacy Hill, amongst others.
MCM America’s vice president of marketing and communications Rita Shukhman said of the endeavor: “Celebrating diversity, unity and friendship during this holiday season, we wanted to create a festive and lighthearted video that embodies a genuine sense of fun and giving amongst friends. With this campaign video, MCM tells its new school luxury story through fresh and playful self-expression. The music is upbeat, the crowd is cool, the gifts are chic and we learn in the end the best gift to give for the holidays is always the gift of good vibes.”
MCM, as previously reported by WWD, is expected to become a $ 1 billion brand by 2020. The company’s U.S. division, which relaunched in 2015, has crossed $ 100 million in annual sales and has risen to become the top-selling bag company at Neiman Marcus. The U.S. market is a key focus for the brand’s 2018 fiscal year.

Gucci Unveils Gift Giving Campaign for Holiday Season

HAPPY NEW GUCCI: Gucci is embracing the holiday season by unveiling its latest Gift Giving product selection and campaign, which will be extensively supported by digital activities.
Spanning many categories — ranging from T-shirts and footwear to handbags, jewelry, children’s wear and even porcelain items — the product selection is at the core of a new art book released by the house in collaboration with Spanish artist Ignasi Monreal.
Monreal designed a series of digitally created artworks incorporating Gucci products and developing a narrative inspired by the story of the fall of Icarus.
“Icarus fascinates me because of his story, which could be read a bit like a mantra,” said Monreal.
“If you fly too close to the sun, you’re going to get burned. If you fly too low, you’re going to drown in the sea. It feels quite bluntly obvious, but I find it quite timeless and reassuring. You have to find the middle point to land on the other side,” he continued, pointing at the “tricky human condition.” The artist also defined the mythological character as “very romantic and of course symbolic of everything young and pretty. Very East London.”
Illustrations in the book include belt-bags encircling a classical statue, small leather goods set in a contemporary,

“I was feeling very nostalgic this season,” Taylor told WWD. “Going through the archives brought back a lot of great memories for me and I wanted to incorporate that into the holiday capsule while celebrating the evolution of the brand.”
She reimagined some of her favorite pieces with a fresh hand and celebratory spirit, including tulle skirts with crystal embellishment, a white blouse with Victorian eyelet detailing and a taffeta evening dress with glamorous ruffles. A quilted bomber jacket, high-waisted leather pants and plush sweater ground the collection with a sense of coziness. Pieces will range from $ 195 for black jeans to $ 1,295 for the leather pants.

MILAN — Say it with a sweater.
In keeping with the success of her Rainbow Week knits — the range of sweaters with the days of the week which made their debut on the brand’s pre-fall catwalk in January — Alberta Ferretti has developed a special style for the holiday season.
A red cashmere crewneck sweater showing the wording “Merry Christmas” in ivory-white will be sold in exclusive at luxury online fashion shopping destination luisaviaroma.com starting from Nov. 17 at noon.
The sweater, which will be available for women, men and children, will retail at 295 euros for the children’s version and at 440 euros for the adult option.
In the last few months, the Alberta Ferretti brand developed special editions of the Rainbow Week sweater, including a style celebrating fashion influencer Chiara Ferragni’s 30th birthday anniversary last May and the one created for Milanese retailer La Rinascente introduced last September during Milan Fashion Week.

Destination XL Lowers Guidance After Soft Holiday Sales

The holidays were not kind to Destination XL Group, Inc..
The Massachusetts-based big & tall men’s apparel retailer, said total sales for the nine-week holiday sales period ending Dec. 31, 2016 decreased to $ 97.9 million, compared with $ 98.2 million for the same period of the prior year. Additionally, comparable-store sales for the period fell 1.4 percent.
As a result, the retailer has updated guidance to the low-end of its previously announced full-year range.
“The retail apparel environment was challenging over the holiday selling season, but we were pleased with our store results on the East and West coasts,” said David Levin, president and chief executive officer.  “We believe our strategic decision to eliminate a fall television advertising campaign, while increasing our digital advertising spend, impacted top-line performance across the country, but resulted in a better return on investment in the current environment.”
Levin said that during the November/December period, the company saw “a noticeable migration with our ‘gift-giver’ this season to online shopping.” As a result, he said the company’s direct business performed well, but it was “not enough to offset the decline in store sales. We are managing our expenses very well, which we expect will allow us to meet the low-end of our

Sophie From ‘The Holiday’ Is All Grown Up

Ten years ago, rom-com fans everywhere fell in love with “The Holiday.” Starring Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Kate Winslet and Jack Black, the movie told the story of two women from different countries who traded homes for the holidays to escape their drama-filled lives for a little while. 

But in all honesty, the true stars of the movie were child actresses Miffy Englefield and Emma Pritchard, who played Law’s adorable on-screen daughters, Sophie and Olivia. (Mr. Napkin Head, anyone?!)

“I was thinking about those two kids the other day — I’m sure they’re not kids now — and seeing them. I bet they’re all grown up, aren’t they?” Law said in a recent interview with People.

Well yes, Jude. They are all grown up. 

Although Pritchard gave up acting after “The Holiday,” Englefield, now 17, appeared in two TV series ― “The Whistleblowers” and “Casualty” ― before stepping away from the spotlight.

This was her then (on the left): 

And this is her now:

Why do I take so many selfies sideways? I have no idea.

A photo posted by Miff (@miffyenglefield) on

According to the Daily Mail, Englefield studied performing arts in college. On Instagram, she describes herself as a “musical being” who’s “loud and mostly ridiculous.”

She also shaved her head for Children with Cancer UK last year, so she’s definitely a special kind of teenager. 

We’re still waiting for “The Holiday 2” to come out …

‘Rogue One’ tops new releases to dominate holiday box office

LOS ANGELES (AP) — It was an intergalactic holiday at movie theaters as “Rogue One” blasted past a spate of new releases to hold onto the top spot at the weekend box office.

‘Rogue One’ Dominates The Holiday Box Office

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” remains powerful at the U.S. holiday box office with a dominant $ 15 million on Christmas Eve and projections of a $ 120 million-plus haul over the six-day Dec. 21-26 period.

Illumination-Universal’s animated comedy “Sing” easily led the rest of the pack on Christmas Eve with a solid $ 7.9 million, followed by Sony’s “Passengers” with $ 2.9 million, Fox’s “Assassin’s Creed” with $ 2.2 million and Fox’s “Why Him?” with $ 1.8 million.

Paramount launched Denzel Washington-Viola Davis’s “Fences” with $ 750,000 at 1,547 sites in Saturday night showings and plans to expand the drama to about 2,200 locations Sunday.

Overall moviegoing slowed on Christmas Eve, as is typical, with “Rogue One” falling about 33 percent from Friday and “Sing” declining about 40 percent. Business should rebound sharply on Christmas Day on Sunday and on Monday, an official holiday for many.

Disney-Lucas film’s “Rogue One,” starring Felicity Jones, wound up business on Christmas Eve with about $ 260 million domestically in its first nine days and is projected to finish the holiday on Monday with about $ 327 million. That will be enough to pull it past “Suicide Squad” as the eighth highest domestic grosser of the year.

“Rogue One,” the eighth Star Wars movie, is running about 42 percent behind the pace “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens,” which opened a year ago and grossed a still-stunning $ 571 million in its first 11 days on its way to a record $ 948 million domestic total.

“Sing” is projected to come in a second with about $ 71.5 million over the six days – in line with forecasts – followed by the Jennifer Lawrence-Chris Pratt sci-fier “Passengers” at about $ 29 million to $ 30 million and videogame adaptation “Assassin’s Creed” at $ 22.6 million.

James Franco’s romantic comedy “Why Him?,” which opened Friday, is forecast to finish the four-day weekend with about $ 14.4 million.

Martin Scorsese’s historical drama “Silence” is projected to finish the four days with $ 170,000 at four theaters. The film stars Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver as 17th century priests who face brutal persecution in Japan.

“Patriots Day,” from CBS Films and Lionsgate, took in $ 34,336 on Christmas Eve from seven locations and is project to wind up the six-day holiday break with about $ 280,000. The Boston Marathon bombing movie is directed by Peter Berg and stars Mark Wahlberg.

An Un-Holiday Holiday Movie Guide

It’s that time of year again! The hap-happiest time when the scent of fresh cut pine trees overrides the less savory odors of the city and everyone seems to know the words to the piped-in muzak. It’s also the time for countless Best Of 2016 lists. Best albums, best gifts, best movies, and the category I blessedly made an appearance in this year, best books. These lists are meant to get you caught up on the best of everything just in time for the extra time that winter breaks allow. But while music, books and gift giving are all a big part of December festivities in my home, there is one winter past time that takes the fruitcake–watching old movies. We spend a considerable amount of time snuggling up on the sofa like couch potatoes, or more apropos for us, laying like latkes, changing channels until we stumble upon a favorite flick.

I’m not talking holiday movies. I know all good channel surfers will pause long enough to watch Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed dance backwards into the pool of their school gym or cringe as Ralphie’s friend is triple-dog-dared into putting his tongue on that frozen metal pole. I’m talking about those favorite films that are your own. The one’s you can watch over and over again, reciting every line as the clicker falls in between the cushions of the sofa, not to be searched for again until the final credits roll.

Here are my personal top-ten, stop me in my tracks, movies.

1. The Royal Tenenbaums

No one does dysfunction quite as colorfully as Wes Anderson. This poignant tale mixes the imperfections of life with quirky fabulousness, making it pure movie magic.

My favorite scene: I could probably watch the scene of Royal playing hooky with his two grandsons and their dog set to Paul Simon’s “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard” on repeat for an entire afternoon and be completely satisfied. And I rarely like montages.

My favorite line: “Let’s shag ass.”

2. Overboard

You may be thinking with all the romantic comedies set in my native New York why have I chosen one set in Oregon? I don’t know if it’s the sweet story of two such different people finding love or the coupling of real life Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell but once I stumble upon it I can’t bare to change the channel.

My favorite scene: Goldie, dressed in an over-sized frock, while Kurt is trying to convince her that she is his wife is priceless. Her deadpan humor is spot-on in that scene.

My favorite line: “I think we can take Olaf”

Runner up: Andrew! Are you going to bring me my lemonade or do I have to squeeze it from my hat?”

3. Goodfellas

This brilliant script with multiple narrators is delivered with accents so pure that one can distinguish Long Island from Brooklyn from the Bronx. While it received six Academy Award nominations everyone knows that the true measure of a good mob tale is the diverse and violent ways in which its characters get whacked. Goodfellas would not only take home that Oscar but be sure to bludgeon someone with it soon afterwards.

My favorite scene: Famous for it’s cinematographic oomph, the one long shot of Ray Liotta leading Lorraine Bracco through the back entrance of the Copacabana has me trying to keep up in Karen Hill’s high heels every time.

My favorite line: “I know there are women, like my best friends, who would have gotten out of there the minute their boyfriends gave them a gun to hide. But I didn’t. I gotta admit the truth, it turned me on.”

4. The Sound of Music

I have been sitting a couch watching this movie for as long as I can remember. From the anticipated yearly showing in the “TV room” in my childhood home growing up to the summer when my daughters watched it daily on repeat. They may not have completed their summer math packet but at “How do you solve a problem like Maria” they were quite adept.

My favorite scene- When Captain Von Trapp and Maria share their first dance, the Landelar.

My favorite line: “Somewhere out there is a lady who I think will never be a nun. Auf Wiedersehen, darling.”

5. Pulp Fiction

If you have read my novel Nine Women, One Dress you know that I’m a big fan of multiple story lines. In Pulp Fiction Tarantino tells many different stories with the actors delivering some of the greatest monologues on film. The comparisons between the two pretty much ends there, but I could sit still for its 2 1/2 hour run time any time. Speaking of time, here is an interesting fact: All the clocks in Pulp Fiction are set at 4:20.

Favorite scene: I’m a sucker for John Travolta dancing. He and Uma Thurman’s Twist is both riveting and set at the perfect time to get off the couch and gyrate those hips a bit.

Favorite line: “Besides, Isn’t it more exciting when you don’t have permission?”

6. Clueless

Amy Heckerling’s take on Jane Austin’s Emma is 90’s perfection. Silverstone is a comic genius in this movie Dan Hedaya who plays her father Mel and Stacey Dash her best friend Dionne are right there with her.

My favorite Scene: Every interaction with Cher and her father, beginning with the first when she tries to get him to drink orange juice for his health. Cher and Mel are as great a comic duo as Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.

My favorite Line: “What’s with you, kid? You think the death of Sammy Davis left an opening in the Rat Pack?”

Or

Cher: “I like this boy, and he likes somebody else.”
Mel: “Well, obviously this boy is a complete moron.”

As if–I could pick just one.

7. A Walk on the Moon

Everyone goes on and on about the blouse man in this sleeper set in the 60’s Catskills, so much so that many people mistakenly call the movie by that name. It’s not Viggo Mortensen’s blouse man who keeps me watching, it’s Leiv Schreiber. The heartbreak and forgiveness he shows in his emotional performance is the main reason that I can’t turn away.

My favorite scene: Even though I just pledged my allegiance to Leiv Schreiber, I have to choose the scene during the moon landing, when Pearl and the blouse man first get together. It’s done so well, a rare and tender portrayal of a usually tawdry subject.

My favorite line: Marty Kantrowitz: What’s goin’ on, Ma? Who’s gonna drown?
Lily Kantrowitz: [pause] You are.

8. The Graduate

Perfection set to the music of Simon and Garfunkel. I can probably close my eyes and watch this entire movie play out in my head. I don’t even need it to be on TV.

Favorite scene- if I have to choose, which is nearly impossible for me, I will just skip to the end, (spoiler alert, in case you’ve been living under a rock) to Elaine and Benjamin sitting on the city bus alternatively smiling and not smiling.

Interesting fact: Mike Nichols left the camera rolling at the end of the scene to capture the actor’s honest reactions.
Depressing Fact: Anne Bancroft who played Mrs. Robinson was just 35 years old in that movie.

My favorite Line: Elaine! Elaine! Elaine!

9. Parenthood

This is my sentimental frontrunner. It’s theme song, I love to see you smile was my wedding song and I gave a copy of the film to my husband to announce that I was pregnant with our first child. Sentiment aside, this movie is filled with a whole lot of relatable and funny.

My favorite scene: The one in the maternity ward at the end. It’s corny but the generations of happiness is majorly touching–plus there is the theme song playing in the background.

My favorite line: Julie: I can’t do this! This is too intense!
Helen: This is marriage!

10. Home for the Holidays

This dysfunctional families Thanksgiving gathering is cast to perfection. Holly Hunters voice, Charles Durning’s dance moves, Robert Downey Junior’s antics and every small detail in Anne Bancroft’s performance leaves me soaking it all up like Thanksgiving gravy.

My favorite scene: Charles Durning’s playing his old film projector in his basement. The remembrance of his family at the airport when they were children, holding on to his leg as a jet takes off is so poignant. That and the scene with the turkey are my two favorites.

My Favorite line: Joanne: Likewise, I’m sure. If I just met you on the street… if you gave me your phone number… I’d throw it away.

Claudia: Well, we don’t have to like each other, Jo. We’re family.

Your Guilt-Free Guide To Last-Minute Holiday Shopping That Won’t Kill The Rainforest

By Philip Rothrock
This story is cross-posted on Ecosystem Marketplace

Have you seen Gucci’s retro “Jackie” bags, patterned after one of Jackie Kennedy’s favorites?

They’re not only lovely, but they’re made of “deforestation-free” leather.

That’s a pretty big deal, because cattle ranchers are chopping forests by the football field to produce beef and leather, which is one reason agriculture generates almost 30% of all greenhouse-gas emissions worldwide.

In the past decade, scores of companies have committed to delivering “deforestation-free” commodities, and some are already making good on their promises, while others seem to be making an honest effort to do so.

But there’s a new front opening, as Canadian boutique owner Cathy Reid recently found after receiving a holiday shipment of nightgowns.

“Some of the nighties are classic cotton flannel,” she wrote on her blog. “Others are silky fabrics, soft and cozy, perfect for the cooler nights in November.”

But then a customer read the label, and found they contained something called “rayon“, which Reid soon learned is a “cellulosic fiber” made of trees.

Such fibers are more common than you’d think, and they’re supposed to be more environmentally-friendly than cotton, that ravenous vampire plant that sucks the life out of soil.

That eco-friendliness, however, is questionable – and you, as a conscientious consumer, have the power to find the answers.
2016-12-18-1482072520-1389589-TimberPulp.PNG

Seven companies have committed to improve their sourcing of wood fibers for fabrics, but none have reported progress. Here is how that’s reflected in one Supply Change profile.

The “Big Four” Deforestation Commodities

Logging for timber and pulp – which includes cellulosic fibers – is the third-leading driver of deforestation around the world, and cattle ranching – which generates leather – is number one. These, together with soy and palm, comprise the “big four” forest risk commodities responsible for most of the world’s tropical deforestation – and until recently, it was nearly impossible to know if your holiday shopping was contributing to the problem.

That started to change when manufacturers like New Balance and Louis Vuitton, as well as retailers like Inditex/Zara and C&A, started promising to chop deforestation from key commodity supply chains. Then NGOs like CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) started rating companies based on their commitments. Last year, the Forest Trend’s Supply Change project started tracking the progress that companies report toward achieving those commitments – providing in the process a fascinating glimpse into the complex, interlocking global supply chains that stretch around the world, involving cattlemen and loggers, as well as subsistence farmers and indigenous people who harvest the commodities we buy as leather, linen, and lipstick.

Keeping Tabs

Supply Change monitors hundreds of companies from around the world and across the industrial spectrum, but just 26 of these are shoe and apparel companies, and only 22 of these have promised to reduce their impact on the world’s rainforests.

That’s roughly 85% of the companies profiled by Supply Change in this sector, and almost all of those have made more than one promise – meaning that the 22 companies have generated more than 40 pledges.

Good – right?

Kind of.

Fourteen of those pledges apply to packaging – which many companies (and everyone who recycles) has committed to doing right – while just seven of them apply to clothing made with wood fiber fabrics.

By contrast, 16 apply to leather.

Those differences are no coincidence: environmentalists have been campaigning for recycled packaging since the 1960s, and many are just now waking up to cellulosic fibers. Things can, however, move fast – as we learned with leather.

2016-12-18-1482072780-4508714-DCShop.jpg

Responding to the Critics

In 2009, Greenpeace built a campaign around evidence connecting deforestation in the Amazon with cattle products sold to many large public-facing brands. This set off a ripple effect among buyers and suppliers alike, and New Balance immediately committed to stop buying shoe-leather from suppliers in the Amazon biome. ASOS, Coach and Eram Group followed a few years later.

On the cellulosic fiber front, an NGO called Canopy launched the Fashion Loved by Forests campaign, and scores of retailers and manufactures vowed to steer clear of wood products from ancient and endangered forests.

Those consumer-facing companies, however, are at the mercy of suppliers, and Canopy says that the ten largest suppliers, responsible for about 75% of global supply, are just beginning to set and implement their own sustainability commitments. Fortunately, the two largest, Aditya Birla and Lenzing, are close to wrapping up their first desktop audits of global operations. They make up around 35% of global supply and received highest scores in Canopy’s first update on viscose producers and forests.

Frustratingly, companies are only reporting progress on about half of commitments for companies in every sector tracked by Supply Change, and clothing retailer Inditex/Zara is one of those that hasn’t reported any measurable progress on its clothing commitment so far – perhaps because it’s waiting for suppliers (like Lenzing) to provide traceability.

The Design Cycle

When clothing companies decide to purge deforestation from their supply chains, they face the same challenge that we, as individuals do: namely, where to begin? After all, very few apparel companies produce their own raw materials. Instead, they’re consumers themselves, and they tend to go through predictable stages of improvement.

First, they promise something along the lines of making sure that all of their leather is “deforestation-free” by 2020.

Then they scramble to find out where in the world their leather comes from – which involves mapping transactions between ranchers, slaughter houses, packing companies and finally traders.

At that point, they usually examine three strategies: move forward by avoiding purchases from high-deforestation areas, help iffy suppliers improve their practices, and/or look for alternate materials.

Each of these approaches break down further – some companies aim to restructure their entire supply chains, one supplier at a time, while others turn to existing certification programs. Stella McCartney brand products even use vegan leather.

A disturbing number, however simply go silent – and, indeed, of the 24 wood-related commitments tracked by Supply Change, only 11 have any reported progress. On the leather front, progress reports are available on 12 of 16 commitments.

Once they implement a strategy, they establish procedures for monitoring progress; and – if they’re serious – they look for independent third parties who can do it for them.

Tracing the Lace

Many companies, erring on the side of caution, only make commitments they’re confident they can achieve – like making sure commodities are traceable to the region, mill or tannery they came from, and ideally to the ranch or plantation. Even that, however, can be a monumental task.

Most of the apparel companies Supply Change tracks do intend to trace their leather supply, and a few, like New Balance and Coach,   require all their suppliers to submit signed assurances that their cattle doesn’t come from the Amazon. Coach says its suppliers have done so.

Similarly, H&M requires signed partner agreements to ensure compliance with its Business Partner requirements for both its wood and leather commitments, and its going one step further for its commitment on cellulosic fiber by working with suppliers to make their own CanopyStyle Pledges.

That raises another question: can the suppliers be trusted?

Meeting the Dress Code

Scores of companies are embedding environmental and social issues into their procurement guidelines, and some – like Adidas – are hiring third parties to audit all direct suppliers and making it clear that non-compliance could terminate the contract. A few, like Puma (owned by retail giant Kering) are even providing funds to help suppliers meet their environmental standards.

Puma also publicly lists its top-tier suppliers, while multi-stakeholder initiatives like SEDEX, CERES, CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), and IDH Sustainable Trade Initiative aim to help companies find meaningful ways of engaging their suppliers on a range of environmental issues and increasingly land use management.

Other initiatives go even further – and do so in ways that promote real change on the ground.

It’s Fashionable to be Certified

When companies abandon high-risk areas, they often fix their own problem but drive poverty and desperation in the places left behind, according to Rosa Maria Vidal of the Governors’ Climate and Forests Fund.

Certification programs, on the other hand, promote sustainable resource management by ensuring companies maintain minimum environmental and social industry standards.

Roughly 20% of all wood products are certified under either the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or Program for the Enforcement of Forest Certification, but certification efforts only began to seriously consider wood fabrics three years ago. As we saw earlier, only seven companies have committed to sustainably source wood fibers embedded in their clothes, and none of them have reported progress.

In leather, the certification of choice is the Leather Working Group (LWG), which audits companies to make sure their leather isn’t associated with deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon biome – making them, in essence, an audited version of the independent commitments made by New Balance, Coach, Eram Group and ASOS. Roughly half of all leather commitments are tied to the LWG, which has already audited more than 14% of leather production.

All of the companies building pledges on LWG certification are reporting progress, ranging from 15% for H&M to around 100% for Nike and Timberland.

These consumer-facing companies rely on LWG-certified tanneries like Couro do Norte, which in turn use lists of bad actors published daily by government agencies and non-profits to keep suppliers honest.

Brazil’s three largest meatpackers – JBS, Marfrig, and Minerva – also supply the leather sector, and they use the same monitoring systems while also publishing third-party audits of their procurement.

All of these efforts are helping to push these hidden supply chains out into the open, across all commodities, so that – hopefully – products like Gucci’s bag will become the norm rather than the exception that proves the rule.

What Can I Do?

Until that day arrives, you can follow the example set by Cathy Reid’s inquisitive customer and ask your own retailers where their clothes come from. Most probably won’t be able to answer, but those questions do filter up. Here’s a list to get you started:

  • Do any of your clothes contain cellulosic fiber or leather? Are there non-leather and cellulosic fiber alternatives?
  • Where does the leather for your purses, jackets, shoes, wallets, come from?
  • How about the forest fibers? Beware, many leather items say made in Italy or China, but this refers to where the products are manufactured, the cows may still be raised in the Amazon or other threatened landscapes.
  • Does your company have a zero deforestation policy(ies) that cover world-wide production of [cattle/leather] and [wood/clothing fibers]?
  • Has your company begun implementing its policy, including supporting and holding suppliers to account?

Take care this holiday season, and remember to read the fine print, because not all gifts may be as caring and thoughtful as you might think when their sources are tainted by deforestation and exploitation.

How to Ditch your To Do List this Holiday Season and Gift yourself Instant Joy.

It’s December. Most likely you have a To Do List that resembles a Horror Movie.

You’re not alone.

I have deeply meaningful work. Connecting women with their purpose, creating art with clients. You might think I’ve got my act together, but my December To Do List reads like a message from hell. It’s not pretty.

Fortunately I know a swift way out of the darkness. It requires five minutes of your time, a sheet of paper and some pencils.

December is that Special Month that encapsulates family, happiness, holiday time, entrepreneurial and job actions and the hope that the year to come will be a breeze.

Dear Santa, give me more fun and less stress.

So, we create a list that contains everything we didn’t manage to finish in 2016. We desperately want to start afresh in the next year. And what better way to do that than work yourself silly?

We smartly divide The List into Work, Family and the dreaded: Miscellaneous.

That is just smart talk for a bottomless sink containing the Facebook ads you have to create without falling to pieces or calling your friend — who you should have called in May — but you remember this while brushing your teeth in the evening. Causing a chain reaction starting with: “Oh my God! I’ve got so much to do. I shouldn’t be allowed to go to bed” to “Why oh why, can’t I be more organized!” ending in “My life will never change, I’m a mess and I deserve to feel like shit.”

Result: a lot of frantic midnight typing on your smart phone until 3 in the morning.

All the while you think you can hear the stacks of unpaid bills and the unfinished tax papers moaning and bitching about you in your closet. „Argh, isn’t she horrible. We’re overdue. Pay us already. I’m just soooo ashamed.

You have to visit your sick father, spend a picture perfect day with your kids, buy tickets for the exhibition you-cannot-miss!, look visibly successful. Cook a super healthy meal and host a night for your fellow Kick-Ass Entrepreneurs.

And that Bloody List refuses to shrink!

Instead, it grows…. and grows and grows. Our To do List is ridden with guilt, shame and fear. The List ensures we will never feel good enough.

Seriously?

It’s almost 2017! Are we still giving permission to be frowned upon and belittled by a stupid To Do List?

The reason we made the list in the first place is the promise that — once the list is empty –, happiness and joy awaits.

But that bloody list is just exactly the same as the umpteenth diet that promises happiness as soon as you’ve lost the dreaded 15 pounds.

Until then… Suffer first baby! Gratification is only for the go-getters.

The List promises you that happiness is conditional. That contentment is something you need to deserve. The List says: “You are only deserving of joy when you cleared me out, solved the puzzles, did the phone calls, paid the bills and finished your website. Until than I will punish you with shame and fear.

Enough already. Be a rebel. Don’t wait for fulfillment until the list is done

Get it now.

This is the simple part. You are the Boss of The List. Never the other way around. Proof it by creating your art.

I know! How crazy simple can it be!? Here’s proof. And if you don’t belief me science is with me on this one.

2016-12-13-1481640018-535884-IMG_6484.JPG

Last Sunday I picked up my List.

My Number One Task: cleaning the bedroom.

Which is short for: clear the Himalayan sized mountain of dresses, socks and skirts, clean the damn place, tidy the closets. It was enough work to keep me occupied for the entire Sunday.

I could feel the resistance. The tiredness. Fear — I will not finish it anyway — racing through my body. Tight muscles. Set jaw. I was about to spend my precious free hours cleaning.

Finish the List!

But than I didn’t. I longed for instant happiness, for air, for love, color. I needed joy.

I graved lightness. Not in 2017. I wanted to Be Happy Now.

I picked up my pencils and paper. And I drew. I could here deep sighs. I could feel my body relaxing. As if the huge dragon on my shoulders decided to bother someone else. I felt instantly light and loved. I felt seen. I was touched. I felt more alive than the entire week before.

2016-12-13-1481639893-2648217-IMG_6497.JPG

Yes, I can hear you say: „So that’s your solution!? That’s easy for you to say. I can’t draw! I suck at art. I don’t even own a pencil. I never touched a sketchbook since Ms Smith in Third Grade told me a Cat is not supposed to have 1 ear and two tails.

I’ll let you in on a secret. It’s not about the result. It’s about the process. The magic happens when you draw a line or mix blue with red. Lightness starts when you color a small circle bright yellow.

I can also hear you mumble: “I don’t have the time for this.”

But here’s the thing. You DO have time. Five minutes of your time. Time you otherwise would use to watch another Netflix series. Or checking how many likes your Facebook post has.

There is no more to it than that. Art heals stress. It provides — those willing to listen — with profoundly meaningful answers. Creating art is more than a A Silly Hobby. It’s a Game Changer. A life Saver. It bring you instant joy.

THIS IS A SIMPLE JOY ENERGIZER- FOLLOW MY LEAD

  1. Sit down. Pick up a pencil and a sheet of paper.
  2. Breathe…
  3. Feel the tension in your body. Listen to the voices in your mind.
  4. Ask. Silently or out loud: “What do I need right now?
  5. Don’t get into thinking mode. The first thing that springs to mind is what you need.
  6. Now listen. Don’t interfere. “Pick up the blue pencil. Draw a line. Breathe.
  7. Keep drawing for at least 5 minutes. If you find this difficult. Listen to music and follow the notes.

Don’t wait for happiness. Pick up a pencil. Do it now!

Draw a cat with one ear and two tails. Smile. Enjoy the calm space your create. Breathe…

And if you can’t find an empty sheet of paper there’s always a To Do List in need of some color and joy.

The Sky is the Limit for Holiday Hair

It’s that time of year again. The holidays are here and many of us have calendars that are filled to the brim with everything from company parties to children’s concerts. With all this activity, we want to feel that we look our best for all the seasonal events while avoiding wearing the same hairstyle that we wear during our everyday routines.

For me, the go to for ideas is always the red carpets of Hollywood. Each year I look forward to watching the Critic’s Choice awards because the show typically falls right in the middle of the holidays. It’s great to watch my favorite Hollywood headliners dressed in the colors of the season which they pair with everything from casual to exquisite hairstyles.

So many different starlets caught my eye this year. Let’s start with Evan Rachel Wood and her asymmetrical look. When I say “asymmetrical”, I am referring to when the hair is cut, or appears to be cut, different lengths on each side. This is a style that we have seen in the past and I promise you, it’s going to stick around for the future. It’s a great look and you can create it easily with a soft textured bob.

We also saw some of our red carpet beauties with hair that was one length. Some opted for very long hair as well which supports what I have said all year in regards to natural looks being popular.

There were also several stars that put their own spin on long hair by wearing one side shorter than the other. I love this creativity. They sky was definitely the limit when it came to wearing unique styles. If I could suggest one thing to focus on this season, I would say that it’s up to you and your imagination when creating a look.

For example, you can construct a classy and trendy style by combing all your hair to one side and pinning it back or spraying it. This keeps it away from your face creating the illusion that your hair is shorter on one side. This is especially fun if your hair is not cut in an asymmetrical way.

Drastic changes can bring some sizzle to your style, too. I can think of several superstars over the years who have shaved one whole side of their head and selected to leave the other side to fall in a loose natural way. How cool is that?

I am still seeing a lot of texture. I am mentioning this because there are many ways to create all types of different textured looks. Let’s take Kate Micucci and her textured bob, I thought that she looked fabulous and the texture brought her style to life.

Lisa Bonet was another terrific example of texture. Consider for instance her updo. Since her hair is naturally curly, it allowed her the option to pull it up and leave beautiful pieces dangling loosely on one side which made for an extremely modern yet sexy look.

Both Janelle Monae and Jessica Beil illustrated that they were all about texture as they walked the red carpet like the superstars they are. I loved it! Not only did the gorgeous Jessica Beil have long textured locks, she rocked her bangs with a full textured look as well. What an awesome way to draw attention to your hair as an asset!

To sum it up, you can take any hairstyle and create your own kind of texture. This can be accomplished through using different colors such as Evan Rachel Wood did. Along with the asymmetrical cut that I mentioned earlier, she had one side of her hair that was very blonde and wore the other side very dark. This is a striking look that contributed to her textured look.

It could be that you have very long hair and you want to create texture by using a curling iron to create different lengths, types of waves, curls or even finger waves. Plain and simple, now you’re dealing with a whole different avenue for designing your style. This goes hand in hand with wearing braids and twist. Add these two items to your hair arsenal and your updo takes on a whole new persona.

Then there is always the bread and butter. Meaning, ask your stylist to take out their sheers. Request some long cut layers, choppy layers or bangs be added to your hairstyle. And again, don’t stop there because like I said earlier, the sky is the limit!

Howard Street Block Party Designed to Reel in Holiday Shoppers

NEW YORK — Holiday shopping can be a competitive sport in certain New York neighborhoods but a cluster of SoHo retailers is banding together for more of a goodwill get-together.
A thousand shoppers are expected to show up for Thursday’s Holiday Block Party on Howard Street. Michele Varian, who moved into the neighborhood in 2001 with her signature lifestyles shop at 27 Howard Street, cooked up the pre-holiday event. She made sure to include an ugly sweater contest. A committee will review participants’ photographs and the winner will be revealed on Friday. Block party goers will also find select discounts and extended hours at such stores as Outdoor Voices, The Arrivals, Roll & Hill and The Affirmation, among others.
Trying to take the pajama trend to new heights, Andy Spade’s Sleepy Jones will host an attempt to break the world record for jumping up and down on a Floyd of Detroit-made platform bed. Not surprisingly, the dress code calls for Sleepy Jones pajamas.
With extended store hours until 9 p.m., Opening Ceremony is aiming to ramp up sales to benefit Kids in Need of Defense, a nonprofit whose goal is to ensure that no refugee or immigrant child deals with the U.S. immigration court

4 Tips to Make Your Next Holiday Gathering Shine

2016-12-07-1481140120-1196452-ScreenShot20161123at5.52.50PM.png
The holiday season is a special time – festivities, food, and most importantly, friends and family! Entertaining loved ones is one of many passions my husband and I enjoy doing together. Creating memorable moments and transforming beautiful spaces requires preparation and attention to detail but it can be fun if you approach it with a fearless attitude. The most fulfilling experiences have the ability to make you lose track of time and leave stress behind. After countless parties hosted, I invited Burlington to my most recent holiday gathering to show them how the Murdocks entertain using Burlington décor to outfit my home and our festive attire. Check it out here!

Here are a few of my easy-to-do tips to accompany my recent webisode for hosting an unforgettable event:

Make a Statement
Make your event stand out with original statement pieces to elevate the energy in your home. Items like festive pillar candles, throw pillows, and specialty knick-knacks give guests a glimpse into your personal style and set the mood for a memorable evening. Wave bye-bye to outdate decor and say hello to new traditions!

Mix and Match Pieces
Mixing your old pieces with a bit of new makes all the difference. Using unique accessories that match the theme and occasion creates an entirely new experience. Up the ante on the glitz and glam because the holiday season is the perfect time to indulge with color (think: bold red, rustic gold and sleek silver), lively centerpieces, and chic table settings. Remember to stick to two or three colors when decorating. Deciding on a palette before you shop makes the selection process quick and easy.

Dine With Vision
On my web series with Burlington, I invited guests into my home to share my top decorating tips and talk about the importance of sharing New Year’s goals with friends and family so they keep you accountable. ‘Connection through conversation’ is a mantra I live by and creating a unique sharing experience over dinner is a great way to fill the room with love and laughter.

Shine Bright
One of the best-kept secrets in party planning and design are flameless candles. They keep your party hot, but not overheated. And while nothing makes winter warm and cozy like a lit fireplace, pillar candles are a great alternative to get the look you want.

For me, breaking bread with loved ones is what makes the holidays so extraordinary. Home is where the heart is, so don’t dim your creativity when crafting a holiday table, assembling organic florals, trimming your tree or hanging that special picture frame. Every detail matters when you create warm holiday memories for years to come!

Michelle Obama Is Holiday Cheer Personified In This Festive Gown

The annual Kennedy Center Honors are always a delight for the soul, boasting epic musical performances and heartfelt speeches. Thanks to Barack and Michelle Obama, these evenings have been a treat for the eyes over the last eight years, too.

That’s largely because FLOTUS, who has been turning it all the way up these last few months in the White House, never ceases to amaze us with her keen sense of style and on-theme dressing.

Take this floor-length, off-the-shoulder Gucci stunner, for example. It’s even got a bow embellishment to symbolize the present she truly is (or, you know, the holiday season in general). 

The first lady previously showed off her holiday flair last week for an event at the White House, wearing a similar dress with long sleeves and a full skirt that was also beautifully embellished. Its length and lack of sparkle made it just a tad less fancy than this one, but there’s no denying they’re both show-stopping party dresses. 

President Obama, of course, looked exceptionally dapper in his tuxedo and bow tie, but this home run from FLOTUS is once again the main event.

COS Taps Six Furniture Designers to Play Musical Chairs for Holiday Film by Lernert & Sander

ALL IN GOOD FUN: With its new Lernert & Sander film, COS seems to be simultaneously parodying how essential seating is for this season’s holiday get-togethers and poking fun at fashion designers’ ongoing game of musical chairs.
But those six designers vying for five highly designed seats in “COS x Musical Chairs” weren’t found in a casting call. As visitors to COS’ site can learn, the competitors also created the contemporary furniture they are vying for. In what appears to be an international effort, the H&M-owned retail chain recruited Canadian designer Philippe Malouin, Dutch-born Marjan van Aubel, Denmark-based Hay cofounder Mette Hay, German product designer Tino Seubert, British furniture designer Lucy Kurrein and Seungji Mun, whose Mun studio is based in Seoul and Copenhagen. Each wears items from the COS party collection and plays the game to music provided by a COS-dressed four-piece band.
The artists and filmmakers known simply as Lernert & Sander certainly know how to work the fashion crowd, having provided a bevy of creative services for such companies as Kenzo, Hermès, Brioni, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Colette, Nowness, Viktor & Rolf, L’Oréal and Wieden & Kennedy among others. Reached in their Amsterdam studio Thursday, the duo didn’t have time

Kids Who Love ‘The Snowy Day’ Are Getting An Early Holiday Present

If you’re looking to build a diverse children’s library, one of the first books you’re likely to come across is “The Snowy Day.” 

Ezra Jack Keats wrote and illustrated “The Snowy Day” in 1962 as a response to the overwhelming whiteness of children’s literature. Upon publication, it became the first picture book to feature an African-American protagonist. 

“None of the manuscripts I’d been illustrating featured any black kids ― except for token blacks in the background,” he wrote in an unpublished autobiography.  “My book would have him there simply because he should have been there all along.”

But “The Snowy Day” is beloved for much more than its political importance. It’s a relatable yet somehow magical story about a boy named Peter exploring his neighborhood on a snowy day, and the illustrations and text are deceptively simple. 

One of my son’s favorite pages shows Peter sitting in a warm bath after telling his mother about his adventures. We always read the text together: “And he thought and thought and thought about them.”

Keats won the Caldecott Medal for Illustration for the book in 1963. 

“The Snowy Day” is still loved by kids today ― it’s #2 on Time’s list of The 100 Best Children’s Books Of All Time ― and Amazon Studios is now releasing an animated holiday special based on the book, which will be available on Prime on November 25. The special will be narrated by Laurence Fishburn and includes the voice talent of Regina King, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Angela Bassett, as well as an original song by Boyz II Men. 

Amazon has released a joint trailer with their other book-based holiday special, “If You Give a Mouse a Christmas Cookie,” which you can view below.  

Diversity in children’s literature continues to be an issue today. And as parents who have slogged through a boring book purchased because the protagonist was brown know, reading about a character that looks like you isn’t always the same as being enchanted by one.

A book like “The Snowy Day” just doesn’t come around all that often.

Destination XL to Ditch TV Ads for Holiday

Destination XL Group Inc. won’t be on the airwaves this holiday season and the company is bracing for the impact.
In reporting a narrowed third-quarter loss on Friday morning, David Levin, president and chief executive officer of the Canton, Mass.-based men’s big-and-tall retailer, said: “We continually look to maximize the return we achieve on every dollar we spend, and that scrutiny is heightened in a difficult retail environment such as the one we are experiencing. Because of this disciplined approach, we have decided not to spend advertising dollars on television in the fourth quarter. Our marketing campaign in the fourth quarter will consist of radio, digital and social media, and we will continue to evaluate the use of television in the future.”
As a result, of this “lack of television exposure, coupled with the delayed arrival of cold weather,” Levin said the company now has “a more cautious outlook for sales and EBITDA.”
In the quarter, the company reported that due to the strength of its DXL store concept, its net loss was $ 4.5 million, or 9 cents a diluted share, compared to $ 5.5 million, or 11 cents a share, in the prior-year quarter. The retailer posted an overall comparable-store sales gain of 0.9
