Intimate Apparel Brands Target Bigger Market at CurveNY

NEW YORK — The CurveNY trade show, which took place at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center last week in New York, had a brand new location. As opposed to being at the far end of the venue, it was connected to Coterie, which was a welcome change for intimate apparel buyers and retailers who are attempting broaden their customer base by aligning more with ready-to-wear and offering fashion pieces.
Paul Stuart made its CurveNY debut with a line of made-to-order women’s robes that retail for $ 595. The company introduced these robes shortly after Paulette Garafalo joined as chief executive officer in the middle of 2016. The CurveNY show was their first attempt to wholesale the line, which the company said has been well received — they picked up three new stockists.
Ginia, a 40-year-old Australian sleepwear brand that started selling in the U.S. a year or so ago, is known for its silk pieces that blur the line between nightwear and ready-to-wear, but in order to appeal to more customers, they’ve introduced a silk cotton blend set of pajamas that retail for $ 255 — its silk sets are around $ 300. The brand, which is sold at retailers including Saks Fifth Avenue and

Jason Wu Fetes Fragrance With Intimate Dinner

“I just want to be a housewife hosting dinner parties and making beautiful perfume,” Jason Wu smiled as guests mingled over fig sangrias.
The gathering Friday night was to celebrate Wu’s fragrance launch in an intimate setting with close friends, like Stacey Jordan Cook, who hosted the dinner at her TriBeCa loft. As waiters carried around handcrafted cocktails, guests admired the colorful floral arrangements brought from Wu’s spring show earlier in the day.
“Beauty is an arena I’ve wanted to be in,” Wu said on creating the fragrance. “I’ve done a lot of beauty collaborations and I’ve never been shy about saying beauty is such a part of my DNA. When I had the opportunity to launch my fragrance with my 10th anniversary, I couldn’t say no.”
Lily Aldridge, who is the face of the fragrance, came to the dinner still wearing the nail art from Wu’s show, which was a design mimicking the fragrance bottle.
“For years we were saying we’re going to work together and finally [the fragrance] came and it was perfect timing,” she said. “I love perfume. Even if I don’t put makeup on or I don’t have time to do my hair, just putting on a fragrance makes you

Erin Andrews Marries Jarret Stoll In Intimate Sunset Ceremony

A big congratulations goes out to Erin Andrews

The “Dancing with the Stars” co-host and sportscaster, 39, married former NHL player Jarret Stoll in a romantic, intimate ceremony in Montana on Saturday (his 35th birthday!), her rep confirmed to People. The couple reportedly said their “I dos” at sunset, with Andrews wearing a gorgeous white, off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera gown with her hair pulled back. Stoll looked dapper in a black tuxedo.

A small group of family and friends celebrated at a reception, designed by celebrity wedding planner Yifat Oren.

Andrews took to Instagram earlier in the week to share a photo of a Montana sunset, simply writing, “Stop.” 


A post shared by Erin Andrews (@erinandrews) on

Andrews and Stoll got engaged last December after dating for three years. They’ve supported each other through many ups and downs, most recently Andrews’ cervical cancer diagnosis in September 2016, which she kept secret until this year.

“I’m somebody who never misses a doctor’s appointment,” she told HuffPost of the surprise diagnosis. “That’s why I think my situation was so scary and so unbelievable. I hadn’t missed an annual with my gynecologist. This came up over a year and it really took us by shock.”

Andrews said the entire situation made her relationship with Stoll stronger than ever, as she saw that he would stand by her side through the toughest of times. 

“We hadn’t even been discussing marriage. We hadn’t discussed babies! It really puts things on the fast track for you — because you have an oncologist saying to you, ‘We highly recommend that you guys do your embryos right now, freeze them,’” she told Health magazine. “I’m like, ‘Hi, hon. I love you. I hope we’re spending  our lives together.’ And he was amazing.”

Cheers to the happy couple!

A Bride Harbors An Intimate Secret In This Haunting Short Film

Set to marry a British man, a Filipina bride-to-be struggles with her feelings for a former girlfriend in “Jane’s Wedding,” director Cole Stamm’s 2014 short film. 

Stamm, who co-wrote 2013’s “Riddle” starring Val Kilmer, said he was inspired by a real-life woman he met in the Philippines. The woman, who was also named Jane, worked as a housekeeper in a Manila hostel. Although Jane identified as sexually fluid, she told Stamm that she planned to marry a man “so that she could have children to take care of her when she got older.”

“I found this fluidity to be really interesting and started observing the LGBT culture more and more, eventually going with Jane to the slum where she sometimes lived called Paranaque, where I met all of her queer friends, including her girlfriend,” Stamm, who originally hails from North Carolina and now resides in Los Angeles, told The Huffington Post.

He had praise for the actress Angeli Bayani, who portrays Jane. “Angeli is really brave and imaginative with lots of technical skill. I gave her some brief notes about the character and watched her transform completely into the tomboyish Jane character within seconds during the audition,” he said. “The transition from Angeli to Jane was seamless.”

You can catch a sneak peek at “Jane’s Wedding” above, then head to Viddsee, which curates and shares powerful short films, to watch the full-length clip.

Sonia Bronstein Shah Focuses on Intimate Luxury, Handmade Classics for ‘Les Glorieuses’

GLORIOUS FORTIES: Sonia Bronstein Shah, founder and designer of London-based label Les Glorieuses, launched her brand to fill the gaps she saw in her own wardrobe.
The result is a curated collection of classic pieces, from the perfect little black dress, to one-shoulder blouses and denim, which she sells through intimate, one-to-one appointments.
“I decided to create the pieces I wanted to wear and if and when someone wanted to buy it, I would also make it for them,” said Bronstein Shah, who likes to classify her label as demi-couture and incorporates aspects of the couture experience in the way she approaches her customer.
“The clothes are elegantly simple but customers can choose from an array of different fabrics that we have available and the experience is very personal. I’m not interested in volume.”
Versatility is another focus for the brand, as Bronstein Shah aims to create season-less pieces that can be worn on different occasions when dressed up or down.
In order to dress up everyday pieces, the label also offers an accessories line, named “Les Precieuses,” which includes minimal chain necklaces and bracelets, as well as pearl-embellished rings and earrings.
Even though the brand focuses on basic pieces and embraces a minimalist, clean aesthetic, Bronstein

Tourism and the Globalization of Emotions: The Intimate Economy of Tango

Tourism and the Globalization of Emotions: The Intimate Economy of Tango

Today, an increasing number of people from all over the world travel to Buenos Aires to dance tango. To accommodate these intimate voyagers, tourist agencies offer travel packages, including classes in tango instruction, dance shoe shopping, and special city maps pointing out the tango clubs in town. Some of these agencies even provide “taxi dancers” — mainly Argentine men, who make a living by selling themselves as dance escorts to foreign women on a short term stay. Based on a cheek-to-cheek ethnography of intimate life in the tango clubs of Buenos Aires, this book provides a passionate exploration of tango — its sentiments and symbolic orders — as well as a critical investigation of the effects of globalization on intimate economies. Throughout the chapters, the author assesses how, in an explosive economic and political context, people’s emotional lives intermingle with a tourism industry that has formed at the intersection of close embrace dances and dollars. Bringing economies of intimacy centre stage, the book describes how a global condition is lived bodily, emotionally and politically, and offers a rich, provocative contribution to theorizing today’s global flows of people, money, and fragile dreams. As the narrative charts a course across a sea of intense, immediate emotional sensations, taken-for-granted ideas about sex, romance and power twist and turn like the steps of the tango.

The Thirties: An Intimate History of Britain

The Thirties: An Intimate History of Britain

Acclaimed author of ‘Wartime’, Juliet Gardiner, brings to life the long neglected decade of the twentieth century – the 1930s. J.B. Priestley famously described the ‘three Englands’ he saw in the 1930s: Old England, nineteenth-century England and the new, post-war England. Thirties Britain was, indeed, a land of contrasts, at once a nation rendered hopeless by the Depression, unemployment and international tensions, yet also a place of complacent suburban home-owners with a baby Austin in every garage. Now Juliet Gardiner, acclaimed author of the award-winning Wartime, provides a fresh perspective on that restless, uncertain, ambitious decade, bringing the complex experience of thirties Britain alive through newspapers, magazines, memoirs, letters and diaries. Gardiner captures the essence of a people part-mesmerised by ‘modernism’ in architecture, art and the proliferation of ‘dream palaces’, by the cult of fitness and fresh air, the obsession with speed, the growth and regimentation of leisure, the democratisation of the countryside, the celebration of elegance, glamour and sensation. Yet, at the same time, this was a nation imbued with a pervasive awareness of loss – of Britain’s influence in the world, of accepted political, social and cultural signposts, and finally of peace itself.

Sheryl Spanier Grabs Us All With Her Intimate Performance

She doesn’t shout at you. She’s not big and brassy, not like some of our other acclaimed cabaret performers. And yet, Sheryl Spanier, in her simple red-sequined jacket, in her almost-offhand stage presence, commands the room as if she were whispering to each of us and we all stopped talking so we could hear the important things she wanted to tell us.

Her most recent success, on June 9, was at the cozy Don’t Tell Mama room on West 46th Street, in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen.

You think you’ve heard the clever lyrics and melodic strains of a Rodgers and Hart tune before? Think again. You remember those old Technicolor movies about turn of the (20th!) Century music? You will re-hear them in a completely different mode as Ms. Spanier brings a modern, but respectful, quality to standards we have been humming since childhood.

Watching her on the stage is like listening to your sister (oh, if I only had one) talk about her life. Yes, Ms. Spangler is singing, but she is also talking, talking to you and not bringing attention to herself, but rather explaining how love works, reflecting on the world, reflecting on feelings. It’s really a philosophy lesson as much as a cabaret performance.

The title of her performance–no, let’s call it a dialogue–is “Give Me the Simple(r) Life.” And in a way, the show is that simple. She brings the most sophisticated music of the American Songbook down to an earthy intelligence, sparked by her intuitive understanding of the lyrics. She doesn’t have to be pedantic, or holler. She’s in command of her subject and she shares it without having to show off.

In this Twitter-frenzied world of celebrities who abuse their 15 minutes of fame, who seem to be obsessed with self and selfies, who mistake four-letter words for gravitas, it is more than refreshing to spend 45 minutes with a lady who respects you, the words and music, and herself. And how many performers could end their show by saying to their husbands, “I love you, David,” without sounding corny? But like the totality of her show, it worked. Let’s hear some more.

Intimate Violence

Intimate Violence

Take an updated approach to treating partner violence! Intimate Violence: Contemporary Treatment Innovations examines new and innovative approaches to treating domestic violence, de-emphasizing the unilateral, psychoeducational approach in favor of treatment modalities that focus on the offenders’ individual characteristics. The book presents up-to-date information on techniques for working with men and women who commit intimate partner violence, moving past a one size fits all mentality to develop treatment that affects long-term changes in beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes. It also includes a brief history of perpetrator treatment, feminist perspectives on treatment, and recent research findings that suggest domestic violence offenders need more than education and attitude adjustment. Intimate Violence explores key treatment issues not usually found in more traditional approaches, particularly shame and attachment. The book focuses on alternate methods based on assessment and tailored to meet the treatment needs of specific populations, including women, lesbian batterers, men with borderline personality disorder (BPD), and Aboriginal men living in Canada. It also examines the Beit Noam, an Israeli live-in intervention program for abusive men, and addresses the legal and ethical issues surrounding the court-mandated treatment of offenders. An international, interdisciplinary panel of practitioners, researchers, and academics also discuss: Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Physical Aggression Couples Treatment (PACT) attachment theory therapeutically based interventions feminist/social learning treatment individual, group, and integrative therapies transpersonal psychology systems thinking field theory and much more! Intimate Violence: Contemporary Treatment Innovations is an essential resource for clinicians, researchers, educators, and advocates working in psychology, social work, counseling, law, health care, and related disciplines.
