Macko Joins Camp Hero Accessories Brand

Michael Macko has become a partner in Camp Hero, an accessories brand that produces unisex hand-beaded items such as bracelets, cuffs and hatbands. Macko, whose career has included stints at Saks Fifth Avenue, Details and MR Magazine, is helping the brand relaunch to focus exclusively on e-commerce and seeks outside investors to help it grow.
Camp Hero was founded in 2014 by childhood friends Allie Carroll and Dan Schneier who built a business that had over 100 wholesale accounts including Orvis, J. Crew and Murray’s Toggery. However, the strategy will now change.

“As we enter 2019, there will be a real emphasis on e-commerce and developing new business verticals,” said Carroll.
Schneier added that it was Macko who first discovered the brand and added it to the MRket show in 2014. “He’s been a mentor from day one, and his incredible creative perspective and business acumen will help bring Camp Hero to the next level,” he said.
Macko’s first order of business will be to oversee a web site redesign and revamp of the product offering to increase the assortment and the frequency of its drops, which will include limited-edition items such as the reissue of the Dia de los Muertos belt  as well

Giovanni Morelli Joins Valentino, Isabelle Harvie-Watt Exits Brand

IN AND OUT: Former Stuart Weitzman creative director Giovanni Morelli has joined Valentino as accessories design director, WWD has learned. He reports to creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli. Morelli, who left the Tapestry Inc.-owned brand in May after one year, is a former leather goods designer for Loewe, Marc Jacobs and Chloé.
Morelli’s exit followed allegations of sexual harassment filed by Stuart Weitzman’s vice president Thomas Gibb, but Tapestry itself has since taken action against Gibb, terminating him and filing its own lawsuit against the executive, alleging breach of contract, duty of loyalty and diversion of corporate opportunities.
At the same time, Valentino’s chief marketing officer Isabelle Harvie-Watt has exited the company after only six months. This was a new role at the company and it is understood it is now vacant.
Born and raised in London, Harvie-Watt has been working in Italy for more than 25 years. Before Valentino, she was a managing partner and ceo of the Spring Group — Spring Studios and Spring Place — in Milan, tasked with expanding and managing the group’s footprint in Italy. Prior to this, Harvie-Watt spent five years as ceo and country manager of Havas Media Group in Italy. While at Havas, she also founded and launched Luxhub, a global strategic consulting division for the

Ron Frasch Joins Aztech Mountain’s New Board of Directors

Aztech Mountain is gearing up for its next chapter and has tapped retail veteran Ron Frasch to serve on its newly created board.
The high-end, skiwear-skewed brand was founded in 2013 by Anthony Heifara Rutgers and David Roth who had a combined 20 years of experience in the apparel industry. Rutgers worked at LVMH’s watch and jewelry division and moved on to Marc Jacobs, while Roth has an MBA from New York University and is a trained forensic accountant whose grandfather started the eyeglass firm Avant-Garde, which was eventually sold to Luxottica, and whose father started Marchon, which was sold to VSP in 2008.
Since launching, Aztech Mountain has caught the attention of Barneys New York and other high-end retailers and is now carried in over 70 stores in 10 countries, according to Rutgers.
“A founder’s vision is always amazing, but we also know we have blinders on,” he said. “We haven’t had a lot of outside influence or anyone to ask questions and poke holes in what we’re doing. We think the brand can be much bigger, but we need to grow up a little bit and Ron will be able to tell us whether to accelerate or pull back. He’s the

Neal Kusnetz Joins Ovadia & Sons as President

The Ovadia twins have found their president.
Neal Kusnetz, the cofounder and former president of Robert Graham, who served most recently as president of men’s and private brands for Xcel Brands, has come on board to help Ovadia & Sons expand its reach.
As reported in July, twins Shimon and Ariel Ovadia were searching for someone to join the company as they expand beyond U.S. borders, relaunch their e-commerce site and move into other product categories.
And after meeting with Kusnetz, they knew they’d found the right fit.
“We feel good about this,” said Shimon. “Ariel and I started this business with pure passion to make product, but no business plan and no financial backing.”
The brothers founded Ovadia & Sons in 2010 and the business has grown substantially from a tailored clothing-skewed brand to a multi-category lifestyle label with some 100 retail accounts including Barneys New York, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Shimon said Kusnetz will oversee the day-to-day operations of the brand while he and his brother will “concentrate on product and brand image.
“Running the day-to-day takes up a lot of time and micro-managing,” he added, “and we were at a point where bringing in someone with Neal’s experience to run the operations

Meghan Markle Joins Prince Harry at Polo Match on Princess Diana’s Birthday

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry returned to the Audi Polo Challenge on what would have been Princess Diana’s 57th birthday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at the annual charity event on Sunday together.

Meghan, 36, opted for a casual white button-down shirt and a pair of form-fitting black capri pants, which she accessorized with a pair of black flats, sunglasses and what appears to be the same Madewell x Biltmore panama hat that she wore to the event on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Harry was seen arriving in a white polo shirt with stripes on the side, which he paired with white pants and boots.

Meghan also attended the event on Saturday, as she cheered on Harry and his brother Prince William while the royal brothers took to the field at the Coworth Park Polo Club. William was not seen arriving at the event on Sunday.

The Audi Polo Challenge likely holds a special place in Meghan and Harry’s hearts: Their appearance at the game last year was the first time the couple attended a public event together, and they marked the milestone with a kiss.

In a sweet nod to Diana, Meghan and Harry found many ways to honor her legacy during their May wedding.

During the ceremony, Meghan’s wedding bouquet, which featured flowers Harry picked himself from their private garden at Kensington Palace, included Diana’s favorite flowers: Forget-Me-Nots.

The Duke and Duchess also included another one of Diana’s favorite flowers — white garden roses — in a unique floral display in St. George’s Chapel.

Diana sat next to Queen Elizabeth while Prince Charles rested on the antique furniture’s arm next to her. In the middle of the photo was a young William in a white polo shirt and baby blue shorts as he grinned off-camera.

Meghan Markle Joins Queen, Royal Family for Commonwealth Day Service

COMMONWEALTH CONNECTION: Meghan Markle has taken part in her first official engagement with Queen Elizabeth II and the royal family at the annual Commonwealth Day service, an annual interfaith ceremony, held at Westminster Abbey on Monday.
Markle joined members of the royal family including Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and the Duke of York. Later that day, the young royals — Prince William, the duchess, Prince Harry and Markle — were scheduled to attend a private reception.
The theme of this year’s service was “Towards a Common Future,” and focused on how the Commonwealth — an intergovernmental organization of 53 member countries that are former territories of the British Empire — can work to address worldwide issues such as sustainability, safety, prosperity and equality.
“Through exchanging ideas, and seeing life from other perspectives, we grow in understanding and work more collaboratively toward a common future,” said the Queen.
“There is a very special value in the insights we gain through the Commonwealth connection. Shared inheritances help us overcome difference, so that diversity is a cause for celebration rather than division. We shall see this in action at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, which takes

Ricky Martin Joins The Cast Of Versace-Focused ‘American Crime Story’

Ricky Martin has just been cast in the third season of Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story” anthology series, which will focus on the assassination of fashion designer Gianni Versace

Martin will play Antonio D’Amico, Versace’s longtime partner, according to Cinema Blend. The singer has worked with Murphy before, appearing on his musical high school TV show “Glee” as a sexy Spanish teacher. 

The “She Bangs” singer joins the already impressive cast, which includes Édgar Rarmirez as Versace, Penélope Cruz as the designer’s sister Donatella and Darren Criss as the killer Andrew Cunanan. It’s been noted that Donatella isn’t a fan of D’Amico in real life, so it will be interesting to see how that plays into the storyline. (Maybe a “Feud” series with Cruz and Martin as Donatella and D’Amico should be next for Murphy?)

But before we get to see Martin in his role, we need to make it through Season 2 ― the follow-up to “The People v. O.J. Simpson.” The second season of the anthology series will focus on Hurricane Katrina and its devastating aftermath in New Orleans. Matthew Broderick and Annette Bening have already been cast. 

“Versace: American Crime Story” will reportedly begin shooting something this month and is expected to air in 2018, shortly after “Katrina.”

Max Mara Joins Shantell Martin for Limited-Edition Sunglass Range

ART IN MOTION: Max Mara opened the doors of its Rue Saint-Honoré boutique in Paris on Thursday evening to celebrate the launch of its limited-edition Prism in Motion collection of sunglasses, created in collaboration with artist Shantell Martin.
Martin, whose signature is stream-of-consciousness works in black marker pen on white canvas, created a tableau especially for the brand featuring circles, lines, squares and written messages.
“I did the initial drawing with this 3-D tool I made that allows you to draw with more than one pen at a time; I like that there’s a little bit of technology behind the fashion,” said Martin. “The inspiration was mainly motion and seeds in the form of positive messages.”
The work was then digitally reproduced and divided into 1,000 different pieces, which were reproduced on cat’s eye-shaped sunglasses, making each pair unique.
The eyewear, manufactured under license by Safilo Group, went on sale in a handful of Max Mara’s flagships on March 2, and a few pairs are also available to buy online.
Guests at the event included actresses Gabrielle Lazure, Audrey Fleurot and Inès Sastre and perfumer Kilian Hennessy.

Keanan Duffty has joined the Polimoda fashion institute in Florence as mentor for the master’s program in fashion styling, effective in April.
Duffty will continue to be based in New York but will make six trips to Polimoda throughout the year to provide advice and educational guidance to students.
The dean of Polimoda, Danilo Venturi, invited Duffty to join the faculty after the designer gave a guest presentation at the opening of the 2017 Polimoda Rendez-Vous lecture program during the Pitti Uomo show in January. Duffty, along with Sex Pistols founder and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Glen Matlock, discussed the intersection of fashion and music and its effect on modern culture, with more than 100 students in attendance. The lecture was followed by two days of intensive workshops with Duffty, for graduate and undergraduate students.
“The global fashion business is currently going through a major paradigm shift,” Duffty said. “I believe it is important for emerging talent to receive guidance from experienced academics and industry professionals in order to navigate that change. I look forward to being a mentor to Polimoda’s very talented design, marketing and fashion business students, bringing my passion for new ideas and a fresh business approach into

Bill Kreutzmann, Grateful Dead Drummer, Joins Street Musician In San Francisco (And No One Noticed)

Tickets to the sold-out Grateful Dead concerts in Chicago this summer are fetching thousands of dollars online, but one member of the band played briefly for free in public on Sunday in front of a crowd of almost no one.

A video posted on Facebook shows Bill Kreutzmann, drummer and a member of the Dead since the band began in Palo Alto, California, in 1965, joining a street musician outside the Ferry Terminal Building in San Francisco.

The musician appears to be John F. King II, who’s known for drumming on garbage cans and other found objects. Kreutzmann posted the clip showing himself performing “undercover” in front of a decidedly smaller crowd than the ones he’ll face in Chicago.

In fact, it seems as if no one noticed at all:

Remember parking lot drum circles? I do. (And I’ll still join in, undercover… even after Sunday brunches in San Francisco.)

Posted by Bill Kreutzmann on Sunday, April 5, 2015

The video can also be seen here.

Kreutzmann has been busy of late. His tell-all book, “Deal: My Three Decades of Drumming, Dreams, and Drugs with the Grateful Dead” will be released in May. And of course, in July he’ll take the stage in the Windy City with his old bandmates for what’s being billed as the Grateful Dead’s final concerts.

Dakota Johnson Joins ISIS In Provocative ‘SNL’ Spoof

Well, this got people’s attention.

Dakota Johnson of “Fifty Shades of Grey” bids an emotional farewell to her father and joins up with ISIS in an edgy “Saturday Night Live” spoof that aired this weekend.

The bit parodies a Toyota Camry ad in which a father drops off his daughter at the airport so she can presumably depart for military duty.

Only in the faux commercial, “SNL” guest host Johnson reassures her weepy pop (Taran Killam), “Dad, it’s just ISIS.” Then some gun-toting Islamic State fighters drive into view to escort her away, slamming the brakes on the sentimental moment.

In the wake of growing reports of women joining the Islamic State and kidnappings by the militant group, the sketch was sure to touch a nerve.

According to reports, it has been met with both outrage and applause.
