Peabody Essex Museum Plans to Unveil Iris and Carl Apfel Gallery

After enjoying her 98th birthday at the end of this month, Iris Apfel can keep the celebration going next month at the Peabody Essex Museum’s unveiling of the Iris and Carl Apfel gallery.
The artist, designer and model is expected at PEM’s Sept. 21 gala, which will give guests a chance to see her namesake fashion and design-focused space showcasing 15 of Apfel’s ensembles for the occasion. The gallery is part of a 40,000-square-foot, $ 150 million wing that has been designed by Ennead Architects of New York. The official ribbon-cutting is set for Sept. 28 at the Salem, Mass., museum.
Like many museums and cultural institutions around the globe, PEM is ramping up its fashion quota. Apfel has been pitching in for 10 years, since the “Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel” exhibition had a successful run. In addition to 90 complete ensembles, Apfel has bestowed 1,000 separates and her late husband’s wardrobe.
Patrons may recognize Apfel’s name, likeness or designs from “Iris,” the 2014 documentary about her life; the Barbie Collector Styled doll by her, various books or modeling campaigns for Kate Spade. The noctogenerian also has signature accessories and a furniture collection. Petra Slinkard, the museum’s Nancy B. Putnam

Heron Preston, Iris Alonzo on Sustainability at Depop Live

NEW YORK — Sustainability is a hot topic in fashion and one that Heron Preston and other executives took on during a panel discussion at the Depop Live pop-up in SoHo over the weekend.
With the irreversible effects of climate change looming over the world, the fashion sector is under pressure to reduce its environmental footprint and remove the shame of being labeled the second most polluting industry after oil. Although that label has been dismissed as fake news, indisputable figures show it is nonetheless a pressing issue that should not be taken lightly.
Bridget Anderson, deputy commissioner of recycling and sustainability at the New York City Department of Sanitation, shared a 2017 study that said 200,000 tons, or 400 million pounds, of textiles and clothing are discarded every year in New York City alone.
Everybody World cofounder Iris Alonzo took the claim further, using T-shirts as an example. “A T-shirt is half a pound, so in theory that’s 800 million T-shirts.”
Anderson said the city spends $ 100 a ton to throw textiles into a landfill.
The hourlong session, entitled “Can Fashion Save the World,” was hosted by the peer-to-peer shopping app and was intended to raise awareness among the Gen Z audience, whose members account

Iris van Herpern Talks About Her Experimental Approach to Futuristic Design

Preparing for the final U.S. stop of “Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion” at the Phoenix Art Museum, even the designer found herself considering her work in a new way.
In a phone interview Thursday, she said the museum’s expansive setup allows for visitors to see a big part of her work all in one room and the connectivity of her 10 years-plus career. “Obviously, as a fashion designer, I work in collections. Each collection has its own story, but there is always a continuity in the work. There are things that come back, materials that come back, textures that have become my identity over the years. Somehow seeing all my collections together over the years, I see my own work in a different light,” she said.
Once the exhibition moves on to Toronto, the Dutch designer plans to update it with more recent pieces from her past few collections. Known for her experimental, futuristic creations, the designer liked joint efforts. She recently did the dancers’ and singers’ costumes for Claude Debussy’s only completed opera, “Pelléas et Mélisande” at Opera Antwerpen in Antwerp. Marina Abramovic, who handled the sets, rang up van Herpen after seeing her designs. Up for the challenge, the designer said she met with

Jude Law’s Daughter, Iris Law, Lands a Huge Modeling Gig

With so many children from famous families becoming models these days, it’s hard to keep up with them all (trust us!) but there was no missing Iris Law’s latest gig. Yes, that would be Jude Law’s teenage daughter, who just snagged her second Burberry Beauty campaign (and the photos are gorgeous!). And to keep you firmly in the fashion and beauty loop, we rounded up even more killer celeb ad campaigns to get you excited (and strt your shopping).

Burberry Beauty

The 16-year-old daughter of Jude Law and Sadie Frost landed her first Burberry campaign in January, modeling the Liquid Lip Velvet line. This time, she’s fronting The Essentials collection, which includes the brand’s core makeup items – prime, contour and highlight – all available now. In the ad she models the glowing makeup like a longtime pro, despite being a relative newbie, which means it’s only a matter of time before she starts hitting the runway for the brand too.

Chanel

Next up, another high-end beauty brand (Chanel) with a new product featuring another famous face (Kristen Stewart). The brand released new images of Stewart’s new campaign for its Ombré Première mono eyeshadow collection, which is meant to encourage women to expresses themselves by mixing and matching the range of colors to intensify the hues.

Piaget

High-fashion jewelry brand Piaget is shaking things up with its new Possession jewelry collection that features six vibrantly-colored stones (a first for the brand) that are all available on net-a-porter.com (also a first!). And Piaget chose the perfect boundary-pushing model for their ads, Olivia Palermo. The campaign, shot by her hubby Johannes Huebl, features Palermo wearing the new stones, but the accompanying video really shows the gems up-close and personal.

Tommy John

Kevin Hart not only loves his Tommy John underwear so much he’d star in the brand’s ad campaign, he loves them so much he also co-produced the 22-part mini series ad campaign! That’s right, he helped create 22 shorts (pun medium intended) all highlighting an aspect of the underwear Hart loves. And not that we have to tell you (it’s Kevin Hart!) but they’re hilarious. Watch one of the first videos to be released, below, and watch out for the rest to roll out on  Tommy John’s YouTube channel and Hart’s Instagram throughout the year.

Iris van Herpen Couture Spring 2017

For her fall couture collection, Iris van Herpen said she was interested not only in the patterns on outfits but also the gaps in between them. The designer approached the outfits like kinetic art, adding to their visual impact by showing them against a backdrop designed by Italian artist Esther Stocker.
It was a collaboration seemingly made in Instagram heaven, but the poor lighting at the venue meant that only the runway photographers were able to capture the intended effect. For the rest of the audience, even seeing the clothes proved a challenge.
That felt like a wasted opportunity, considering the amount of work that went into each of the 16 looks. In a preview, van Herpen said the curved lines that formed hypnotic repetitive patterns on the clothing were computer-designed but molded and painted by hand with a blend of polyurethane and pigment.
“The shapes are constructed, but it’s the body that changes the shapes and warps the angles when you walk in it,” she explained.
Working in black and white, the designer applied the designs on transparent rubber to create short dresses that quivered like jellyfish. The formations glistened on the surface of a long-sleeve black silk dress and appeared suspended in space on
