Goodlife to Open Store, Launch Women’s Wear

It’s been a whirlwind five years for Chris Molnar.
The apparel industry veteran of Michael Kors, John Varvatos and WP Lavori in Corso created Goodlife Clothing in 2014, a men’s premium basics brand whose T-shirts, Henleys and sweats are now sold at all Nordstrom and Trunk Club locations, as well as several specialty stores, a variety of upscale resorts, and online.
But Molnar is now taking the brand into its next phase, opening its first brick-and-mortar store and expanding into women’s wear.
 

Goodlife will enter the women’s business this fall. 

In November, Goodlife will open its first store, at 400 Bleecker Street in the West Village. It will measure around 400 to 500 square feet and will focus on Goodlife’s “hero product,” its premium T-shirts. Although other seasonal merchandise will also be on display in the shop, Molnar said it will be for try-on purposes only. Anyone purchasing the other pieces in-store will have them shipped for free.
“Over 75 percent of our business is our year-round jerseys and terries that are made in L.A.,” Molnar said. “So by focusing on that, we mitigate the risk of having seasonal product on the floor and reduce the inventory we need to carry.”
Molnar is partnering with Leap,

Etro Celebrates Launch of Pegaso Bag at NYFW

Italian hospitality came to New York Tuesday afternoon, when Etro celebrated the launch of the Pegaso Bag with an intimate lunch hosted by Veronica Etro.

Elsa Hosk, Hunter Schafer, Suki Waterhouse, Halima Aden, Gala Gonzalez, Jessica Joffe, Rebecca de Ravenel and more came out for a little arancini and gnocchi between shows, wearing Etro florals and paisleys from pre-fall, and the New Romantic baroque minidresses or jackets from fall. Once inside the postcard-perfect back garden at Palma, Aperol spritzes were served and it felt like summer had never ended.

“We shot the campaign here, it’s a very energetic city,” Etro said of her 48 hours in the city. “We’ve been celebrating so much in Milan with the anniversary exhibition, but to come abroad is good, it’s a way of crossing borders,” she added, before making a toast to friends, who were seated at tables set with paisley Etro tablecloths and napkins, with a monogrammed Etro pillow at each seat.

The cross body bag is a re-edition of a style dating back to the Eighties, and derives its name from the winged stallion of Greek mythology which has symbolically represented the brand since 1968. And with the show schedule as packed as it has

Novak Djokovic and Montblanc Launch Special StarWalker Fineliner

NEW YORK — Novak Djokovic is a huge advocate for sports and education, but the latter is why he partnered with Montblanc through his Novak Djokovic Foundation to create a limited-edition StarWalker writing instrument.
Djokovic, who is the number-one ranked tennis player in the world and is defending his U.S. Open championship this month, had an intimate conversation with Hypebeast’s Courtney Kenefick at Soho House in the Meatpacking District to talk about his collaboration with Montblanc, his foundation, the importance of education and his experience in education and writing.
“I’ve grown up in a household where education was essential. It took more than just tennis skills to get where I am today,” Djokovic said.
Djokovic spoke at length about education in Serbia, his home country, and how it can improve early childhood education programs. “Our education is quite good [for ages] seven and older, but there’s lack of awareness of what preschool really means,” he explained. He said culture and finances are reasons for the lack of programs and awareness, and added, “As a father of two wonderful children, now I’m understanding more.”
Djokovic started the Novak Djokovic Foundation in 2007 to invest in preschool education in Serbia at a time when 55 percent

Gearbox ‘Committed to’ Borderlands 3 Cross-Play Support After Launch

Gearbox will reveal something related to the theme of “togetherness” tomorrow. But whatever it is, it won’t be a cross-play announcement for Borderlands 3.

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford confirmed that whatever Borderlands 3’s “Celebration of Togetherness” reveal is tomorrow it has nothing to do with cross-play. Instead, Pitchford assured fans that even if cross-play won’t be announced tomorrow, the online feature will hopefully come to Borderlands 3 after launch.

Last week, the official Borderlands 3 Twitter account posted an invitation to a new Borderlands 3 livestream event for Tuesday, July 16. The invitation was for an event titled, “Celebration of Togetherness.”

Fans saw the invitation as a teaser for cross-play in Borderlands 3. Having cross-play would mean that players could enjoy Borderlands 3 with friends, regardless of which platform they owned Borderlands 3 on. Xbox One Borderlands 3 owners could play together with PS4 or PC players, and vice versa.

Nordstrom, Union Throw Block Party for Concept 005 Launch

Sam Lobban wasn’t about to host just another in-store event for the launch of Nordstrom’s latest pop-up men’s concept shop. Instead, the retailer’s vice president of men’s fashion threw a high-energy block party at the Hester Street Market on the Lower East Side to introduce Concept 005: Union & Company, complete with food, drinks, live music and fun takeaways.
“We’ve been to enough boring cocktail parties,” said Chris Gibbs, owner of Union, the buzzy Los Angeles-based specialty store. “We wanted to create something we would actually go to.”
The event was properly named a block party. The vibe was a neighborhood cookout, with food provided by Jamaican restaurant Miss Lily’s. The only thing missing was an open fire hydrant for children to run around, but the young attendees found fun and games at a ping-pong table instead.
A newsstand near the entrance carried fashion magazines, gave out free candy, and scratch-off tickets for a chance to win a free T-shirt. Games such as dominoes and chess were stationed on picnic tables and wooden speakers were in the rear where Stretch and Bobbito provided tunes for the party.

Moncler and Palm Angels Launch Second Genius Collection in SoHo

Moncler and Palm Angels celebrated the launch of 8 Moncler Palm Angels, the expanded second collection for Moncler Genius, with a party at the Moncler store on Prince Street in SoHo Thursday.
Designer Francesco Ragazzi traveled from London, where he hosted a party in Camden with rapper Octavian, to New York City to host another soiree that drew guests such as Ronnie Fieg, Vashtie Cola, Nigel Sylvester, Young Paris, model Zahara Davis, and Kerwin Frost on the turntables.
The first 8 Moncler Palm Angels collection launched in October 2018, but the second effort from Ragazzi is a much bigger collection. “The first one was more like merchandise for the Genius project, while this one is like my own collection so it’s much bigger,” Ragazzi told WWD at the launch party.
The co-branded pieces, including down parkas, tracksuits, hoodies, and T-shirts, among other styles, feature graffiti, paint splatter, graphics, bright collage patterns and the phrase “mind control” on some styles. The “Palm Angels” graffiti tag that was seen throughout the store on mirrors, walls, and display windows is part of the collection’s theme of “Art Breaking.”
“I started with the idea of a vandalized art gallery,” said Ragazzi about the collection. “The purity of the

EXCLUSIVE: Mytheresa to Launch Men’s Wear for a Post-Streetwear World

LONDON — This is a man’s world, to borrow from James Brown, with big retailers such as Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges casting fresh eyes over their men’s fashion floors and expanding their spaces to cater to a brand-conscious generation.
Online players such as Mr Porter, Matchesfashion.com, Farfetch and the British site Endclothing are making more space for sneakers, men’s capsules, exclusive products and limited editions, while the Paris men’s show schedule is back-to-back, with new international names and hot contemporary labels that show men’s and women’s wear alike.
Mytheresa, which until now has sold women’s wear only, is vaulting into the arena with a gutsy proposition to deliver a new elegance to the category, complete with a lineup of luxe brands, tailored clothing and price points suited to shoppers with deep pockets.
Where other retailers may be stretching their offer or floor space to include more streetwear, T-shirts, sneakers, grooming products and entry price points, Mytheresa is taking a different direction in the belief there is untapped demand for a new take on the classics and a more formal attitude.

SYDNEY — After nearly a quarter of a century covering luxury goods through various roles at Australian fashion magazines, Australian editor Kellie Hush is taking aim at the fast-fashion arena via her own accessibly priced accessories line.
On May 24, nine months after the former Harper’s Bazaar Australia editor in chief revealed she was quitting after six years to start her own business, Hush will launch a line of handbags and jewelry called The Way via an e-commerce site, with plans to open five freestanding 800- to 1,100-square-foot brick-and-mortar stores in the Sydney region by the end of the year and 50 stores across Australia within five years.

Kenzo Takada Celebrates U.S. Book Launch at FIT, Talks About Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly

A LIFE IN PICTURES: Tuesday night’s understated book signing for Kenzo Takada at the Fashion Institute of Technology was just his style.
About 50 guests were invited to the FIT Foundation’s low-key event at the school’s Art & Design gallery. Stateside for a three-day stay, the Paris-based designer planned to return to campus Wednesday afternoon for an informal chat with students. Known for his inclusive approach to fashion that incorporates multicultural influences with exacting techniques, Takada did not wish to judge the students’ designs — to avoid dissuading them in any way.
Undergrads were not among the well-wishers Tuesday night, since alcohol was served. Sipping on a glass of red wine, Takada was surprised to learn that FIT has a museum on campus and asked about what types of exhibitions have been staged there.
The guest of honor was looking forward to seeing the musical “My Fair Lady” on Broadway, before flying out of town. Earlier in the day, Takada dashed into Barneys New York’s Madison Avenue store to try the chicken at its Freds restaurant. En route, he also ducked into the Celine boutique because he is “very curious” about what Hedi Slimane is doing there. One eagle-eyed staffer recognized Takada and

J.Lindeberg’s Davey Adesida Capsule to Launch April 27

J.Lindeberg’s limited-edition capsule collection with New York-based photographer Davey Adesida will be released worldwide on April 27 in select company stores and online.
The 29-year-old Adesida was born in Nigeria but is now based in New York, where he became familiar with the work of Jens Werner, J.Lindeberg’s creative director. He reached out, they developed a friendship, and as a result, Werner selected several of Adesida’s images of the East and West Coasts to use on the capsule collection.
“Davey reached out to me since he had seen the work we have put into J.Lindeberg the past two years,” Werner explained. “He expressed he really liked my artistic expression and I felt the same way when I was introduced to his work. I also love analogue photography as it reminds me of my grandfather who did analogue photography for almost 50 years, so when that idea came up for this collaboration, it felt natural.”
The capsule consists of one T-shirt in two colorways and one shirt, all with photo prints from Adesida’s work. All pieces are unisex, and prices range from $ 125 to $ 260.

Liberty Debuts Biannual Print Magazine in Anticipation of Resort Wear Launch

BOOK WORM: Liberty still believes in the power of print and the department store has just launched a biannual magazine, The Liberty Book. The book’s first edition centers around the theme of travel and features interviews with designers such as Simone Rocha, Zandra Rhodes and Dries Van Noten.
“This book is a coming together of all the different aspects of Liberty because we’re curators and makers and the whole thing is based around travel because Arthur Liberty (the founder of Liberty) traveled around the world to find amazing treasures,” said Madeleine Macey, chief marketing officer of Liberty.
The magazine is broken up into five sections, people, style, insight, empower and habitat with stories from designers about their favorite places to go, their inspirations alongside editorial shoots and origins of Liberty prints. It retails for 10 pounds.
Jewelry and beauty are also covered in the magazine, such as a feature about jewelry designer Andrea Fohrman whose jewelry is inspired by stones from around the world. There’s also a men’s wear edit featuring Scandinavian label NN07 and Japanese label Kings of Cult.

California First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Time’s Up Launch #EqualPayCA Campaign

Timed to National Equal Pay Day on April 2, Jennifer Siebel Newsom (who is married to California Gov. Gavin Newsom and prefers to use the title “first partner” rather than “first lady”) has teamed with state politicians and the gender equality organization Time’s Up to unveil an awareness campaign to close the pay gap in California.
Together with California Labor Secretary Julie A. Su and The California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls, Newsom on Monday launched  #EqualPayCA with the goal of educating employees, employers and labor unions, as well as the public, about the issues. They have signed 13 inaugural corporate partners — including Airbnb, Apple, AT&T, Shutterfly and Square — to a pledge that commits them to conducting annual gender pay analyses at their companies, as well as reviewing hiring and promotion processes to enact best practices.
Because every good cause needs a shirt, there will be a “Time’s Up Pay Up” shirt released with Prinkshop, a female-owned company whose products are made in the U.S. with non-profit and women-owned factories.
“California has the strongest equal pay laws in the nation — but there is still more work to do,” Newsom said in a statement. “That’s why I applaud

Virgil Abloh Turns Out for Peggy Gou’s Label Launch

FRIENDS: “She’s like the bride,” quipped Marcelo Burlon as DJ Peggy Gou arrived ever so slightly fashionably late to a dinner at the Beefbar on Tuesday night in honor of the launch of her fashion label, Kirin.
Burlon waxed lyrical as friends of Gou sashayed about in looks from the collection, including DJ-cum-model-cum-muse Sita Abellan, dressed in a lime green plastic trench, offset by her blue hair and eyelashes, and influencer Yoyo Cao in a fake fur and color-blocked leather pant.
“I think the music can be a little louder, no?” said Gou who donned a red kimono with a twisted guns print for the occasion.
“First of all, she’s an amazing DJ. I’m a DJ, too, so I’m always playing her tracks at my parties, and then when you see her and listen to her music, it makes sense and comes together,” said Burlon. “Actually, I did one collection inspired by her, even before New Guards Group decided to launch her brand; she was on my moodboard.”
Virgil Abloh was equally approving. “We’re cut from the same cloth,” he said. “What makes a designer in today’s climate is a little bit of an intangible creative output and presence, and she has it. The

Izzue to Launch Capsule With CSM and to Show During London Fashion Week

FIRST TIME AROUND: Hong Kong fashion brand Izzue is throwing a 20th birthday bash in the form of a runway show during London Fashion Week in February. This will be the first time that Izzue’s men’s and women’s pieces will be showcased on a London runway.
“London has always been a source of inspiration for Izzue. It has always embodied British punk, so to show outside of Asia needed to be a natural next step and it needed to make sense, so it had to be London,” said Deborah Cheng, chief commercial officer at I.T group.
Izzue, which is under the multibrand I.T Group, has formed ties with London since 2013 when they launched in the U.K. in Selfridges. Since then, the brand has gone from being a pop-up to having a dedicated space in the department store’s Contemporary Studio on the third floor.
“Our pop-up was so successful back in 2013 that we were offered a permanent space on the ground floor right after, and to this day we are still exceeding their expectations. We’ve grown with Selfridges and now we are located in the Contemporary Studio,” said Cheng.

Uniqlo Partners With Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to Launch Katagami Collection

LINE THEM UP: With art pretty much always being in fashion, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has teamed with UNIQLO to launch the Katagami UT collection.
Inspired by katagami stencil from the museum’s collection of Japanese art, there are eight T-shirt designs for women and seven for men. The artsy items are being sold in Uniqlo stores and through its e-commerce site, as well as through the MFA Signature Shop. This launch builds upon the 10-year partnership both parties formed last year.
Hand-carved from paper with intricate designs, katagami stencils are traditionally used to dye cotton, silk or other textiles for Japanese garments. MFA curators worked closely with Uniqlo to select patterns from the Museum’s collection of 4,200 katagami stencils, most of which were brought to Boston by William Sturgis Bigelow, who was one of the first Americans to live in Japan. Bigelow played a key part in establishing the Japanese collection at the MFA, which now totals nearly 100,000 objects in all genres. The Uniqlo-MFA collaboration makes its debut 108 years after the MFA held an exhibition spotlighting katagami stencils — not only as tools, but also as works of art in their own right.

Scandinavian Man to Launch a Dedicated E-commerce Platform Boosting Nordic Labels

A NEW MAN: The biannual magazine and fashion platform Scandinavian Man is looking to enhance its online presence with the launch of an e-commerce channel in January. The publication, which made its debut in 2017, is aiming to propel Nordic men’s fashion and lifestyle to the forefront of the men’s international style scene.
Following a series of talks during Pitti Uomo 94, a showroom exhibition in New York and a photography project with H&M, which made three times the expected sales; cofounders Jonas Bergström and Konrad Olsson felt that expending into e-commerce would boost the awareness of Nordic labels such as Filippa K., Sand Copenhagen, Norwegian Rain and Tretorn.
“Men’s wear is booming, over the past 10 years there has been an unprecedented rise of awareness when it comes to men’s style through social media, street style photography and online shopping,” said Olsson.
He believes that men are more receptive to online shopping than women are: “Guys are more prone to making decisions in the comfort of their own home, rather than in a dressing room and when they make decisions they do it very thoroughly. They want to know about the brand, what they stand for and who else is wearing them.”

Is Spider-Man on PS4’s Launch Trailer Teasing a Big Role for Miles Morales?

Though we may get another tease or two in the weeks to come, the launch trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man is likely our last big look at the upcoming PS4 exclusive.

Harper’s Bazaar Australia Editor in Chief Kellie Hush Quits to Launch Fashion Venture

SYDNEY – Harper’s Bazaar Australia editor in chief Kellie Hush said Saturday she will step down from her position after six years to launch “a unique fashion brand.”
Hush will leave the magazine on Aug. 31, with the September edition her final issue.
Deputy editor and beauty/features editor Eugenie Kelly will take over as acting editor.
A representative for publisher Bauer Media confirmed Hush has resigned but declined to comment further, noting the company will be releasing a statement on Monday.
“I’m not Anna Wintour,” said Hush, “but I think people start speculating about [editors] moving on and I made the decision, it was a personal decision, I’m doing something really exciting which I want to do.”
She added of her abrupt exit, which surprised the fashion industry, “When I spoke to my publisher Fiorella Di Santo [after resigning on Friday], I was very clear I wanted to control the message. The business is in great shape, we have just smashed our September budget for advertising. At this stage our sales are up 13 percent on budget, which in this kind of market is smashing it. I wanted to leave on my own terms.”
Hush declined to disclose any other details about her new venture, other

Chrissy Teigen, John Legend Cheer Brooklyn Decker at Finery’s L.A. Launch

“We realized that women were spending more on their clothing than their education, and yet there is so much that is hanging in their closets that they don’t use,” said Whitney Casey by way of explaining why she and Brooklyn Decker decided to create Finery, the virtual wardrobe and styling app they launched in March 2017.
Just over a year later, the former CNN journalist and the model-actress celebrated with a launch party at the Microsoft Lounge in Culver City, Calif. While the company is based in New York, where both divide their time with Austin, Tex., Decker has a host of friends in Los Angeles, such as Chrissy Teigen, John Legend and Jen Atkin, all of whom came to cheer her on, as did New Yorker Emmy Rossum (both she and Decker are filming television shows in L.A. this summer).

Off-White, TheDoubleF Launch Capsule Collection

Off-White has teamed with Italian online retailer TheDoubleF to launch a capsule collection, which will be on sale on the e-commerce site from Wednesday.
Called TheDouble-OFF, the capsule consists of seven unisex pieces including a jacket, a hoodie, a sweatshirt, a T-shirt, a pair of jeans, as well as a hat and a belt, featuring details in the e-tailer’s signature teal green color.
“I started from the ‘TheDoubleF’ visual DNA to create a collection with a special crafted identity that relates to the Off-White core image,” said Off-White creative director and chief executive officer Virgil Abloh.
“We believe in synergies, a critical element to differentiate ourselves in a highly competitive market. So, who better than Virgil Abloh could inaugurate our series of exclusive collaborations?” TheDoubleF ceo Francesco Galli said, referring to the series of exclusive collaborations with high-end designers and brands to be developed in coming months.  “Off-White and TheDoubleF are two emerging brands with a disruptive DNA — the result is an explosive capsule collection.”
To promote the TheDouble-OFF capsule, TheDoubleF has tapped Milan-based photographer Piotr Niepsuj, who explored the theme of duality by working with two models and mirrors.
The capsule retails from 190 euros for the T-shirt to 1,400 euros for the jacket.

Stalvey to Launch Men’s Accessories

A favorite accessory brand of Beyoncé and Gigi Hadid is going to be available for men.
Stalvey, an exotic skin accessories collection created by Jason Stalvey and popular with many female celebrities, will launch its first men’s collection for fall.
The inaugural lineup, which will include duffels, backpacks, caps and small leather goods, will be exclusive to Moda Operandi, an upscale e-commerce site that just expanded into men’s wear this month.
Stalvey, who has a background in science and medicine, launched his women’s line with Barneys New York in the fall of 2014, and it’s currently offered there as well as at The Webster, Harrods, Lane Crawford and other upscale retailers.
But while he’s made his mark in women’s wear, it’s actually men’s where he got his start.
Stalvey said that while his background wasn’t in fashion, he got into the business after being unable to find an alligator skin duffel bag that fit his needs. “I thought, it can’t be that hard,” he said. “Well, it was that hard.” But he stuck with it, found artisans in the U.S. and Italy that were able to work with exotic skins, and eventually created what he believed to be the perfect duffel.

Frankies Bikinis to Launch RTW During L.A. Runway Show

Frankies Bikinis, the Los Angeles-based contemporary swimwear line founded five years ago by then-18-year-old Malibu native Frankie Aiello, is branching out into ready-to-wear. The collection, dubbed Aiello, will debut alongside Frankies Bikinis’ resort 2019 collection during a runway show in L.A. on June 21.
Aiello, now 23, said she chose to forgo showing at Miami Swim Week, which she has done for the past four years. “I feel like at this point I could show in Miami with my eyes closed. Now was the time to bring it back to my hometown and do something different,” she said. (Another 18-year-old designer, Gianna Caruso of Gigi G, will make her Miami Swim runway debut this year.) Frankies Bikinis sells in 200 retail doors worldwide including Kith, Selfridges, Diane’s Beachwear and Revolve.com, and Aiello will sell primarily on the Frankies’ e-commerce site.

Zac Posen Readies for Memorial Day Launch of New Uniforms for Delta

Zac Posen’s Memorial Day plans are all about travel, as he officially launches new uniforms for Delta.
The designer will be at LaGuardia Airport Monday afternoon with Delta staffers showing off their new attire, around the same time that a Singapore departure will be taking flight wearing his designs. In total, Posen and his team are suiting up 64,000 staffers. Lands’ End partnered on the project to handle the production, which included a wide range of sizing including petites and tall.
After the Memorial Day debut, Posen will board a plane to fly to Delta’s home city of Atlanta for the start of a whirlwind 48-hour cross-country tour that will feature fashion shows in-flight and in airports. He will also make stops in Minneapolis and Los Angeles.
Having done a considerable amount of “job shadowing,” Posen said the physicality of Delta employees’ work called for micro bacterial and stretch fabrics. Since January, he has taken 40 flights learning about employees’ lives and careers. “A lot of the cabin crews are lifers who have had incredible experiences traveling the world.” he said. “It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience to go from baggage check-in to ticketing at the counter to learning how to use the

Zara Poised to Launch Augmented Reality App

ARTEIXO, Spain — Zara is looking to press home its growing focus on its omnichannel synergies to shoppers with the planned launch of an augmented reality app geared to its Studio Collection.
Dubbed Zara AR, and conceived by Self-Service cofounder and creative director Ezra Petronio, the shop-the-look app was unveiled in the chain’s pilot store area at the Inditex headquarters here on Tuesday. It will be introduced in 120 Zara flagships on April 18, for a period of two weeks.
After downloading the app and scanning a QR code, users point their smartphones at graphic signage markings on one of three dedicated points. Once activated, models Léa Julian and Fran Summers seemingly spring to life in seven- to 12-second sequences, parading looks from the line. They can be seen from the street, moving through an empty window, for instance, or Lilliputian size, twirling across the boxes used for online deliveries.
The app features a tool for sharing the experience on social media, encouraging users to take and submit photos of the holograms.
Beyond the surface retail-tainment value, the chain’s continued focus on customer-centric technology — the basis of its business model, as the pioneer of a fast-fashion concept built on a flexible, proximity-based supply chain — combined with its

EXCLUSIVE: Gemfields and Muse Showroom Launch E-commerce Site to Sell Their Collaborations

Gemfields, one of world’s leading suppliers of responsibly sourced colored gemstones, is launching an e-commerce platform with partner Muse Showroom.
The partnership between the two began in 2016. Gemfields, which owns Fabergé and operates its own emerald mine in Zambia and ruby mine in Mozambique, wanted to create collections from its stones, and the Muse Showroom fine jewelry client base offered a way to collaborate and create pieces using them. Over the past few years, the collaboration has grown from brands exclusively at Muse to friends of the New York-based showroom and emerging designers as well.
Until now, the collections have been selling piecemeal at a variety of retail channels but Jennifer Shanker, founder of Muse Showroom, wanted a place to show the comprehensive assortment of charms, rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces.
“My goal was to curate a space that showcases the full breadth of beautiful pieces from the Gemfields x Muse collaborations,” Shanker said. “I wanted to give customers visibility and access to current and past collections, connecting them with stunning colored gemstones and talented designers in one easy, shoppable destination.”
The idea of a website had been on Shanker’s mind for several years but “…we didn’t want to compete with our retailers, but

THE GENNY PRINCESS: Daughters often clamor to wear their mothers’ dresses and Genny is listening.
The brand’s creative director Sara Cavazza Facchini is delivering a children’s wear capsule collection in time for the holiday season, inspired by her daughter Angelica’s request for a range of dresses worthy of a grownup.
Cavazza Facchini has worked on a 30-piece lineup of children’s wear, named Genny Princess. The range reinterprets the brand’s signature elements of plissé and one-shouldered dresses that defines the brand’s aesthetics.

Terre Jacobs to Launch Feel the Piece Plus-Size Line, FTP3

Contemporary sportswear designer Terre Jacobs is getting into the plus-size game, with an extension of her Feel the Piece line, called FTP3, launching for spring 2018. Jacobs, who launched Feel the Piece in 2010 at Saks Fifth Avenue, followed by the younger Tyler Jacobs line in 2012, said she’s sizing up the pieces in her regular line to make them flattering for curvy figures.
“My sister is a plus size, and she could never find cute clothes. And I would get tons of requests from women who are above a size 16. One of my staffers is actually a size 16, so she became our fit model,” said Jacobs, who is based in downtown Los Angeles. The silk striped camisole and duster she was wearing are also available in FTP3, which begins at size 16. (Feel the Piece comes in sizes XS to XL.) In addition to its signature cashmere sweaters, graphic T-shirts and off-the-shoulder modal tops, FTP3 uses French terry, eyelet, dark floral prints, rayon jersey and slub knits. Retail price points average at under $ 250.

MILAN — Canali SpA has inked a five-year licensing agreement with L’Amy America, part of International Luxury Group, to produce and distribute a luxury collection of sunglasses and ophthalmic frames. The collection will bow at Milan’s eyewear trade show MIDO next year and will be rolled out globally starting in March.
This is a first in terms of brand extensions for the Italian family-owned men’s wear group. General manager Stefano Canali underscored how this category in particular has “substantial content,” and stands out since it “frames the face.” The executive said finding the right partner was a priority and praised L’Amy for having Canali’s same “values and codes,” for the company’s use of first-rate materials and expertise, and its technology and craftsmanship.
He also noted that this is a first step in a strategy of extensions spanning over the next five years. “We are in no rush, we want to do things well.”
The rollout will be “well-calibrated. We don’t want to flood our stores with eyewear.” He emphasized how it was key for the product to reflect the quality of the brand, and was upbeat about the potential of eyewear for Canali. “There is room for a well-done product, that will help

Dsquared2 to Launch Capsule Collection Against Online Bullying

MILAN — Dsquared2 founders and creative directors Dean and Dan Caten will launch a capsule collection in partnership with the cyber antibullying movement “Be Cool Be Nice.” A portion of the profits from the sale of the graphic lineup of apparel and accessories will go toward the foundation, which aims to stop online bullying of young adults and children.
“Online bullying is a powerful and scary issue that can have a lasting, negative impact on young people’s lives,” said Dean Caten. “We were bullied as kids and we understand how destructive it is,” added Dan Caten. The designers revealed they immediately joined the cause as “it’s important to give kids and teenagers who are forming their personalities space to discover themselves without judgment, criticism and hate.”
The capsule collection — which includes denim, sweatshirts, T-shirts, baseball caps, high-heeled sandals for women and sneakers for men — was conceived to channel “an attitude of strength, confidence and positivity.” Every item features the name of the foundation and the logo of the brand, contrasting the garment’s classic color palette of black, gray and white.

Hosted by lifestyle celebrity Kristin Cavallari, the fully interactive video will be available online at Who What Wear beginning Thursday, where shoppers can select outfits, access product information, share social media platforms and purchase items directly from the runway.
“Millennials and Generation Z — who we’re calling ‘Generation App’ — are seeking style and comfort in their clothing and convenience in their shopping experience, a combination that’s not always easy to find,” said Kim Kitchings, senior vice president of consumer marketing at Cotton Inc. She said in collaboration with Bloomingdale’s, they’re making quality fabric and fashion accessible in seconds, “and you have to attend Fashion Week to get the look.”
Cotton’s 60-second fashion show merges a runway experience directly to a shopping opportunity on their mobile phone, where this generation spends a great deal of time. Seven in 10 Generation Z consumers and eight in 10 Millennial consumers said they browse for clothing on their smartphones, significantly higher than that of consumers overall (58 percent), according to Cotton Inc.’s Lifestyle Monitor.

Zorpads Founders Launch Company, Look to Extend to Other Categories

REAL SHOE-INS: Graduating from Harvard Business School might cause some to want to kick off the shoes, but two recent alum looked at that tendency as an opportunity for a viable business. Sprung from what started as a school project, Zorpads, odor-eliminating inserts are being launched by cofounders Taylor Wiegele and Sierra Smith. The pair met at Harvard Business School, where both graduated from in May.
The $ 5 one-size-fits-all items are sold on the Zorpads site, and between 10,000 and 50,000 units are expected to be sold this year, according to Smith. Once stuck to the insole of a shoe, Zorpads are supposed to last for 60 wearings.
Extending the technology for a variety of types of shoes and for the interior of gym bags are areas being considered for future growth. Wiegele and Smith tested earlier versions at HBS, and finished as semi-finalists in Harvard’s New Venture Competition. That ranking helped to attract the attention of Rough Draft Ventures which is supporting Zorpads with funding and mentoring.

NBA MVP Russell Westbrook to Talk Fashion at 92Y Book Launch With Rizzoli

WESTBROOK’S FAN BASE: The NBA’s two-time MVP award winner Russell Westbrook will be the first athlete to get the grilling from Fern Mallis at 92Y.
The stylish point guard will take to the stage Sept. 11 during New York Fashion Week. The Olympian will be talking up his new Rizzoli-backed book “Russell Westbrook: Style Drivers,” which is due out early next month. Westbrook teamed with artist Raymond Pettibon for the cover’s combo of sports and fine art. After brainstorming with Westbrook in March, Pettibon, an avid sports fans, wound up doing three different covers, the endpapers and chapter openers.
Admittedly, the Q&A is “somewhat of a departure and a little stretch” for Mallis, but she was game after Rizzoli’s publisher Charles Miers suggested the idea. She has also met the six-time NBA All-Star here and there at fashion shows. “We’ve run into each other in the city. I like him,” Mallis said. “And I grew up in a basketball family. I love basketball. Being a New Yorker, the Knicks are my team. But my dad was a basketball coach in his early youth, and my cousins were all [taller than] six feet and they played basketball.”

The actress and entrepreneur, who are both from Colombia, have partnered to establish Eby, a subscription-based intimate apparel brand slated to go live on Sept. 25. They will donate a portion of sales to the Seven Bar Foundation, which fosters entrepreneurship among underprivileged women via micro financing.
“Eby is a social enterprise,” said Black, who has a background in micro finance, which provides small loans to women. Once they pay back their loans, that money is passed on to other women. “We are all about the empowerment of women and the vehicle is underwear. Ten percent of our proceeds will go toward small loans for women to start their own businesses and come out of poverty.”
Black said she pitched the idea to Vergara, who had an interest in shapewear and lingerie, and she was immediately intrigued. While Vergara serves as an ambassador for a multitude of brands — Ninja, Kmart and Pepsi, for example – this is her first such enterprise.
“When I met Renata she was developing this best-in-class underwear. I tried the product and it was better than any other underwear I’ve had. In our first meeting, Renata talked about exploring

Ethical E-commerce Site Fashionkind to Launch Fine Jewelry Vault

With the launch of its first capsule collection, comprising 30 accessories, ready-to-wear and fine jewelry items from 11 designers worldwide, ethical e-commerce platform Fashionkind is moving toward expanding its offerings in the sustainable luxury space. Founded two years ago by former investment banker Nina Farran, Fashionkind curates sustainable luxury products from companies that give back to underserved societies and the environment.
The capsule collection includes exclusive pieces such as hand-painted jeans from Rialto Jean Project, sunglasses from Michael Nelson, bags from Khokho, as well as dinner-to-drinks apparel from Indego Africa and Colette Sol. Also included for the first time are five fine jewelry brands — Sandy Leong, Lola Fenhirst, Dana Bronfman, Tejen and Kimberlin Brown — which will be a part of the site’s fine jewelry “vault” launching in September. Prices range from $ 425 to $ 18,000 for a pair of grey and white diamond and recycled 18-karat gold drop earrings.
“I wanted to do something beyond one-offs that would go toward developing the collection and the brand,” said Farran. “After talking to brands such as Edun and Maiyet, we decided to make some changes to the site to better tell these stories. Traditional retailers may not be the ideal partners because these stories

A. Sauvage to Launch Sportswear Collection After Moving Studio to L.A.

Adrien Sauvage, who established his men’s wear label A. Sauvage in London in 2010, has become the latest designer to decamp for Los Angeles, opening up a studio in Beverly Hills this summer.
“Basically I came here for Christmas holiday and I never went back,” said Sauvage, who said Robert Downey Jr. was among the first of his clients to encourage the move. Sauvage launched his line of contemporary suiting in Harrods, then opened his own shop on Bond Street, and today his made-to-measure pieces are also available online. He still travels back to London every eight weeks for his made-to-measure clients, but says the California lifestyle has inspired a new idea — a sportswear line due out in January.
“I surveyed the land of T-shirts. I thought two or three years ago the whole sportswear thing was going to go in the bin, but it’s still here. It’s even tweaked my own style a bit. My sportswear line is going to have a casual elegance, the whole seven days a week wardrobe. It’s perfect for getting on or off a plane,” he said. He is still exploring wholesale partners for the line.
Sauvage has several star NBA clients, such as Dwyane Wade,

Devereux to Launch Swimwear for Resort

Devereux is plunging into the swimwear space.
The brand will expand its resort collection to include swimwear for the first time and will introduce a 15-piece collection to retailers at the trade shows this month. It will be offered to consumers in November.
Designer Robert Brunner focused the collection around two styles: the Amalfi swim trunk and the Bond board short. The Amalfi offers an elastic waistband, side pockets, a full lining and is made from a quick-dry fabric. The Bond board short has a snap button front, side pockets and also utilizes quick-dry fabric.
“I was determined to make a proper swimwear collection that was about fit, performance and quality. I spent the last couple of years developing swimwear in Portugal because I want to give our customer the craftsmanship and quality of a fine European garment,” Brunner said.

The swimsuits will retail between $ 115 and $ 135.

DILARA’S PROPAGANDA: Luisa Via Roma’s Andrea Panconesi headed to London Thursday night to mark the launch of an exclusive capsule with the emerging designer Dilara Findikoglu.
The Florence-based retailer fully embraced Findikoglu’s rebellious spirit for the evening, hosting a dinner in a grand room at East London’s Masonic Hall, complete with rock music and withered roses scattered on the dinner table.

Daniel Hechter to Launch Men’s Sportswear Line

Daniel Hechter is making a bigger play in the U.S.
The brand, which was started by Hechter as a women’s collection in 1962 and moved into men’s and children’s six years later, wants to broaden its reach with a sportswear collection it will present at New York Men’s Day on Monday. The line will launch exclusively with Macy’s in October.
“We saw this as an opportunity to bring a European brand to the U.S.,” said Mark Bushby, the men’s sales director at Daniel Hechter. “We thought there was a white space in the market for affordable, European designer product.”
According to Bushby, who was previously the men’s director at Calvin Klein Collection, the sportswear line is an attempt to make the entire lifestyle assortment more contemporary. The collection, which is designed in Paris, consists of shirts, sweaters, jerseys, pants, blazers, lightweight outerwear and leather pieces. The line retails from around $ 75 to $ 450.
Hechter is no longer involved with the line, which he sold to Miltenberger-Otto Aulbach GmbH in 1998. The collection is carried in 2,500 points of sale globally and the sportswear is licensed by Shanghai Shenda America LLC.
Although the company is expanding its reach in the U.S., Bushby said the market has

Geller Readies Gustav von Aschenbach Launch

NEW YORK — Just call him Gustav.
Robert Geller’s new brand, which he will unveil Tuesday with a show during New York Fashion Week: Men’s, may have a mouthful of a name – Gustav von Aschenbach – but that’s in direct contrast to its style, which focuses on casual, oversize silhouettes with few embellishments.
“In my mind, that’s where men’s wear is going,” he said. “It’s about silhouettes and ease.”
Geller said he’d been “thinking about silhouettes for a long time” and felt he was finally ready to branch out.
The general shape of the silhouettes is “quite round,” he said, and the pieces are all manufactured in Japan from Japanese fabrics and are “more simple than Robert Geller.” There are no prints or patterns — although a couple of pieces have stripes. Linens and linen blends with “some synthetics mixed in” provide a worn-in aesthetic. There are oversize T-shirts and sweatshirts, cowl-neck anoraks, softly tailored topcoats and utilitarian jackets, “light and breezy pants” and shirts in “crunchy” fabrics. Knit bombers and cardigans as well as a few oversize canvas bags and sneakers round out the offering.
“The details are so simple, so the silhouette is important,” he said. “I want it to be very

Bad Boy Entertainment to Launch Macy’s Pop-up

Bad Boy Entertainment is expanding into retail.
The record label, which was founded by Sean “Diddy” Combs, is producing the Heritage collection, a line of Bad Boy merchandise that will be exclusive to Macy’s.
To celebrate the new endeavor and the release of Combs “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” documentary, which is currently streaming on Apple Music, Macy’s will hold a pop-up at its 34th Street flagship in New York that will run for six weeks starting Wednesday, June 28. July 1 also marks the 20th anniversary of Combs’ first album, “No Way Out.”
“Bad Boy is about following your dreams,” said Combs. It only made sense for me to team up with Macy’s for our Heritage Collection. This collection represents a movement I started in 1993, when I was a dreamer. When you work hard and believe, your dreams can come true. Twenty five years later, I’m still dreaming. We’re still pushing forward. Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop.”
The pop-up will be stocked with Bad Boy graphic T-shirts, coach jackets, hats, hoodies, baseball and basketball jerseys, including the yellow style Bad Boy artist Notorious B.I.G. wore in his debut video “Juicy.” The collection, which retails from $ 28 to $ 88, will be sold at Macy’s locations nationwide.

SNES Classic: Will Nintendo Learn From its Past Launch Mistakes?

I’m probably not the only old-school Nintendo fan with conflicting emotions today. On the one hand, the long-rumored/expected Super NES Classic was announced, and it sounds awesome! Two controllers, 21 games including several bona-fide all-time classics, and even the unreleased Star Fox 2. Yes!! On the other hand, Nintendo flat-out bungled the launch of the NES Classic, which was a gimme putt as far as system launches go. What should’ve been a uniting moment of universally celebrated nostalgia was instead a months-long slog of frustration, unceremoniously capped off by the quiet discontinuation of the NES Classic in April, assuring that many fans would never get their hands on the tiny trip down video game memory lane.

Krammer & Stoudt to Launch Made-to-Measure

Krammer & Stoudt is bringing its aesthetic to the tailored clothing business.
The independent men’s brand that is known for blending Southwest and Southern California influences with an East Coast bent, is teaming with Brooklyn-based master tailor Martin Greenfield Clothiers on a made-to-measure suit program that will launch on June 1. Additionally, Krammer & Stoudt is working with Newark, N.J.-based Mitch Gambert on a line of custom shirts.
The initiative will offer imported fabrics chosen by the brand and is intended to appeal to men who are seeking a custom fit in unique fabrications.
“The Krammer & Stoudt client lives and breathes creativity,” said designer Michael Rubin. “In whatever his occupation, he is the visionary. He wants to look appropriately sharp, but also wants to express himself confidently in his sartorial choices.”
Krammer & Stoudt will host private appointments with customers and take the initial measurements and help them select the fabric, style and fit. Once an order is submitted, it will take about five weeks to receive a finished suit and two weeks to receive a finished shirt. A second appointment for final fitting and adjustments may be necessary.
The suits will retail between $ 1,600 and $ 2,400 and shirts will average $ 250.

RETAIL REINVENTION: Project Womens is on board with the lifestyle trend at retail, with a new concept set to debut on its show floor in August focused on home and giftable items.
The Coeur x Project Womens space is set to feature items from between 20 and 30 brands focused around apothecary, home, tech accessories and giftable items.
“We really feel that the retailers are looking for an added value for some lifestyle and gift items so Coeur was the perfect partner for us to launch this new concept area,” saidProject Womens vice president Kelly Helfman. “It’s just really where retail’s looking right now to add that sort of product to their everyday retail apparel stores, and so we listened to our buyers that are walking our show.”
Capri Blue, Lux/Eros, Los Poblanos and Esselle are among the brands confirmed to show in this new space.
A special buildout in the center of this marketplace, which will total about 3,000 square feet, will show retailers how the product can be incorporated in with their ready-to-wear and accessories within stores.
“It’s really a lot of point-of-purchase items, but I think it’s more about not just carrying these sorts of items near the register,” Helfman said.

Young Royals Launch Global Academy, Take Part in Radio Talk Show

ROYALS ON THE RADIO: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince Harry to launch a school called the Global Academy in West London on Thursday.
The royal trio headed to the school in Hayes, London, met with students and took part in a Heart radio breakfast show, broadcast from the Global Academy. The talk was held with students — and Spice Girl Emma Bunton — and focused on topics pertaining to mental health.
During the talk, the duchess said the first conversations about mental health should start when children are young. She suggested starting “these conversations from a much earlier age but through play, even if their language hasn’t yet developed.”
She also addressed loneliness: “Yes, it is lonely at times and you do feel quite isolated but actually so many other mothers are going through exactly what you are going through. It is being brave enough…to reach out to those around you.”

Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Launch Mental Health Film Series

This is the kind of royal treatment mental health deserves.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are yet again lending their voice to those living with mental illness, this time with a 10-part film series through their mental health campaign Heads Together.

The initiative, which is called #OKToSay, features videos on the importance of speaking up for mental health. The goal is to encourage more people to start discussions around emotional well-being. Prince Harry is also participating in the project.

Attitudes to mental health are at a tipping point,” the royals said in a statement. “We hope these films show people how simple conversations can change the direction of an entire life. Please share them with your friends and families and join us in a national conversation on mental health in the weeks ahead.”

Each video showcases people with mental health issues as they talk about how acknowledging their condition helped them learn to accept and manage it. They also highlight stories about the person’s first time talking about mental health with a loved one. The conversations explore the importance of not staying silent when it comes mental illness.

The trio launched the new videos on Thursday right before World Health Day, which this year aims to focus on depression and the treatment gap for the disorder. Recent data from the World Health Organization found that depression rates have climbed 18 percent in the last decade. More than 300 million people globally experience the mental health condition, yet nearly half of them don’t get treatment.

Previous research suggests people may avoid seeking help due fear of shame from their peers. Public advocacy like William, Kate and Harry’s can help change that, according to experts.

Head on over to the Heads Together campaign’s website to watch the #OKToSay videos and learn more about the project.

Cristiano Ronaldo to Launch CR7 Denim Line

Cristiano Ronaldo has expensive taste.
When the Real Madrid soccer player isn’t on the field, he likes to wear denim from Balmain, Givenchy and Dsquared2. But oftentimes, these brands don’t fit him off the rack. This dilemma was the starting point for CR7, his men’s denim brand that will be available in June.
“I don’t take myself too seriously, but I take what I do very seriously. So when I had the opportunity to launch my own denim line, I didn’t want it to be like any other line on the market,” Ronaldo said. “Inspired by what’s important to me, this collection is for more than just my fans. It’s for anyone who shares my values, who lives a limitless life and loves denim.”
It’s being produced and distributed by Uniti Fashion, a sourcing and manufacturing company founded in South Africa. The line is designed around the premise of comfort and high-fashion influences.
“We are doing more on a daily basis and we need clothes that can work for us,” said Henry Monsell, global marketing director for CR7. “With this line, we are showing Cristiano’s persona off the field and telling a story about his work ethic, discipline and loyalty.”

Galeries Lafayette to Launch Rolf Ekroth Capsule

HYERES, HYERES: Showing its support for young designers, French department store Galeries Lafayette for the third year in a row has invited a fashion finalist from the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography to create a capsule to be sold in a selection of its stores.
Following in the footsteps of Louis-Gabriel Nouchi and Sophie Harand, Finland’s Rolf Ekroth has designed a unisex capsule of rain gear that will go on sale at Galeries Lafayette Haussmann in Paris in September, as well as in a handful of regional department stores operated by the retailer and its e-shop.
Housing four apparel designs and two sneakers, the line will be unveiled at the Hyères Festival’s upcoming edition in late April, in the “Formers” area of the Villa Noailles.
Ekroth, who started his career as a social worker then professional poker player, studied fashion at Helsinki’s Aalto University, making his way to the festival with a men’s wear collection inspired by golf.
Galeries Lafayette, a longtime sponsor of the festival, for the first time will announce its next guest designer at the event’s prize-giving ceremony on April 30.

The prized athlete, activist and humanitarian died last summer at the age of 74.
Built on the policy that one pair of socks is donated to an underserved person for every pair purchased, Bombas has donated more than two million pairs of socks to date across the U.S. Cofounder David Heath said, “Muhammad Ali is not only an icon for his athleticism, but also for his charitable efforts. His devotion, perseverance and generosity have served as longtime inspiration for us, and we are proud to introduce a partnership that celebrates his greatness, both in the ring and in the community.”
The former heavyweight champion was also dogged about activism. He helped expedite the delivery of medical supplies to an embargoed Cuba, provided more numerous meals to the world’s impoverished and met with Saddam Hussein in 1990 to help secure the release of 15 U.S. hostages from Iraq.
The Muhammad Ali x Bombas collection will draw inspiration from iconic quotes, images and the personal style of “The Greatest of All Time.” The launch will be supported

Azzaro Kicks Off Anniversary Year With Launch of Capsule Collection

AZZARO RISING: Loris Azzaro began celebrations of its 50th anniversary with the presentation on Wednesday of a capsule collection designed by socialites Bianca Brandolini and Eugenie Niarchos.
Gabriel de Linage, chief executive officer of the Paris-based fashion house, said it was the first of five key events scheduled throughout the year, ahead of the planned relaunch of its women’s ready-to-wear collection in 2018.
In March, it plans to open its first men’s store in France in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district of Paris. This will be followed by a retrospective at an undisclosed location in May, to be accompanied by a book published by Editions de la Martinière.
The house is set to reveal soon a successor for Arnaud Maillard and Alvaro Castejón, its former artistic directors who exited their roles in June after a three-year stint. In addition, it plans to launch a men’s capsule collection in the fourth quarter.
“We are trying to develop men’s and women’s in parallel. They are both very strong segments: men in particular thanks to the perfume, which is very well-known, and women’s fashion thanks to couture, which is at the heart of Azzaro,” de Linage told WWD.

Jennifer Lopez, Giuseppe Zanotti Celebrate Shoe Launch at Neiman Marcus

ALL THAT GLITTERS: Neiman Marcus’ windows facing Wilshire Boulevard dazzled in the frosty night air Thursday and were hard to miss once the curtains dropped.
Jennifer Lopez’s arrival, running a little over an hour behind schedule, was cause for celebration among those braving the cold to see her and also signified the big window display unveil. Neiman’s four windows now contain a bedazzled array of some of Lopez’s memorable looks, including the plunging green silk chiffon number by Versace that she wore to the Grammys and a silver cutout dress by Charbel Zoe worn at the MTV Video Music Awards.
The sparkles were fitting as Lopez and Giuseppe Zanotti were on hand at the Beverly Hills store to mark the launch of their collection Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez. The line was introduced this month at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom, among other retailers. The collection, which also includes two handbags, retails from $ 795 to $ 1,995.
“It’s easy to work [with her] because if you are close to the artist you have a deep connection,” Zanotti said.
The designer’s collaboration with Lopez is certainly not the first time he’s worked with a famous face, having designed custom shoes for Kim Kardashian,

Adam Lippes to Launch Men’s Wear Collection on Matchesfashion

Adam Lippes is creating his first full men’s wear collection for luxury e-commerce site Matchesfashion.com.
According to Lippes, his original plan was to sell a small assortment of men’s wear on his e-commerce site, but after mentioning the line to the team at Matchesfashion, which sells his women’s collection, they became intrigued and started to work together on the assortment.
“My whole concept is a little fashion in men’s can go a very long way,” said Lippes, who added that during trunk shows many female customers ask about men’s wear. “These are seasonless clothes that the customer is going to live in. They aren’t fashion with a capital ‘f’ pieces that are going to be marked down.”
The 16-piece line, which Lippes is calling “ath-luxury,” includes knits made with a double-face Italian merino fabric, dress shirts in two lengths, T-shirts, casual cotton pants, wide cotton shorts and a sweatshirt. The collection, which retails from $ 95 to $ 390, comes in a neutral palette of powder blue, heather gray, navy, tobacco and white. It will be available on Matchesfashion.com and Adamlippes.com on Jan. 26.
This isn’t the first time Lippes has designed for men. His first line, Adam+Eve, which he launched in 2004 and later sold, produced

Louis Vuitton, UNICEF Launch #Makeapromise Day

GOOD CAUSE: Louis Vuitton is to launch its first #makeapromise day on Jan. 12 in partnership with the United Nation’s Children’s Fund, or UNICEF, to raise funds for children in urgent need.
The initiative comes a year after the luxury brand embarked on the charitable project with an initial three-year global partnership with the UNICEF fund.
During this day, some 12,000 Louis Vuitton sales associates in 460 Louis Vuitton stores worldwide will pitch the partnership and promote the sales of the Silver Lockit jewelry items, with $ 200 from each sale of the $ 600 pendant and $ 500 bracelet donated to UNICEF. An offer will be made that day for those who purchase two Silver Lockits items in all Louis Vuitton stores and on louisvuitton.com.
The event will be held in tandem with a campaign where clients will be encouraged to come accompanied with someone close to make a “pinky promise” and to share their promise online with a hashtag #makeapromise. Vuitton staff is also inviting clients to make direct donations online throughout the year and especially during emergencies.
Since January 2016, the partnership has helped raise $ 2.5 million to help bring children life-saving humanitarian support in Syria and Nigeria.

Heacket, ‘World’s Most Durable Heated Jacket,’ Readies for Launch

HOT HOT HEAT: Owen Zhang is a self-professed lover of the outdoors.
After getting his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at the The University of Minnesota Twin Cities in Minneapolis, Zhang traveled home to Shenzhen, China to launch Meltpartners, a company that manufactures and retails outdoor sporting goods. In 2014, he linked with a company there called Heacket — a play on the words “heat” and “jacket” — and together the two set out to create “the world’s most durable heated jacket.”
Two years later, a new line of jackets is ready for its debut. The Heacket team has set up an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to test the market, where interested buyers can preorder the style at a discounted price.

Roc-A-Fella Records Cofounder Kareem ‘Biggs’ Burke to Launch 14 Capsule Collections Nationwide

Kareem “Biggs” Burke is executive producing a new type of project.
The cofounder of Roc-A-Fella records is overseeing the simultaneous drop of 14 Roc96 collections at 14 specialty stores throughout the U.S. starting in December. Each collection is inspired by a different song from “Reasonable Doubt,” Jay Z’s debut album that turned 20 this year.
“I was trying to do one drop a month and obviously there are 14 songs and there aren’t 14 months in a year, so we decided to consolidate it,” said Burke, who tasked his design team with thoroughly listening to the album before creating the collection. The line, which retails from $ 25 to $ 145, features T-shirts, hoodies, hats, beanies and reprinted “Reasonable Doubt” cassettes. The assortment has graphics and messaging that riff off of lyrics from the classic album.
The Foundation Showroom is handling the distribution of the collection, which will be available on Dec. 4, Jay Z’s 47th birthday, at the following stores: Social Status locations in Pennsylvania and North Carolina; A Ma Maniere in Atlanta; Feature in Las Vegas; Woodstack in Brooklyn; Politics in New Orleans; Creme in Norfolk, Va.; Xhibition in Cleveland; Corporate in Cincinnati; Ubiq in Philadelphia; Concepts in Manhattan and Boston; Soho Gallery in

Yanina Couture to Launch Ready-to-Wear Pieces for 2017

BIRDS OF A FEATHER: Moscow-based couturier Yulia Yanina made her first-ever trip to Los Angeles this week to show off her fall collection. While her ethereal embroidered tulle and mesh gowns have been worn by Gigi Hadid, Gwen Stefani, Emma Roberts, Kate Hudson, Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson and Sophie Turner, among other stars, Yanina had so far only met a few of them in person. She has had rendezvous with several movie stars at the Cannes Film Festival, which she attends every year.
“Los Angeles is not what I thought it would be like, but I find the people here so friendly,” she said from her room at Chateau Marmont, surrounded by her birds of paradise and Russian love letter-themed collections. The designer, clad in a black satin embroidered coat dotted with ostrich feathers, which she paired with boyfriend jeans and mules, seemed to fit right in with the high-low vibe in Hollywood. Along with her daughter Daria, whom she sends to the States for celebrity fittings, she spoke of her inspirations, namely the romance of Imperial Russia. The skirts of several gowns were embroidered with skylines of St. Petersburg and profiles of Alexander Pushkin and his wife and muse Natalya,

Genny to Launch Capsule Collection With Bergdorf Goodman, Plans U.S. Expansion

More than five years after Swinger International relaunched the Genny label, the company is amping up its focus on the American market.
Creative director Sara Cavazza Facchini and Swinger chief executive officer Mathias Facchini flew in from Italy to meet with media and a few key prospective clients Monday at Spring Place.
In addition to the Art Deco-inspired spring collection, the company was previewing its new capsule collection, which will make its debut on Bergdorf Goodman’s sixth floor this week. A sleek long white coat, a black plunging V-neck jumpsuit with embroidered silver beading, a pale lavender skirt with a molded jacket and pale blue faille coupe dress with a coordinating jacket are among the options. The 12 or 13 offerings are geared for special occasions and cocktail parties as well as for after-work options for chic businesswomen, the creative director said. Dresses retail from $ 850 to $ 1,350, jackets and coats are $ 1,400 to $ 1,800 and pants and skirts are $ 450 to $ 1,000.
The fact that many Genny shoppers in Europe are visiting from the U.S., especially California and New York, was impetus to increase its U.S. distribution, she said. The label has 100 concept stores and four freestanding ones. In September, Genny

Later to Launch? Why Couples Should Get Married Later…

So, the other day, I felt like a total adult. Like, so adulty, that it made me feel uncomfortable. Why? Well, my hus and I took a long overdue trip to the attorney’s office to sign our wills, health care proxies, and other important documents so that we could protect our kids from any additional anguish should the worst case scenario become a reality. Wouldn’t you say that I am officially an adult? I know! Right? Ugh. It was a tough day, but necessary!

The reason I’m writing about this? Well, Mr. Attorney said something to me that I couldn’t shake in regards to when my kids should have access to their trusts (when we actually have $ $ to give them!). He said that age 35 is the new 25. What does that mean? Well, depending on how my kids develop (and who they develop into), giving them access to a decent sum of money without a chaperone (the executor), could be a mistake. I mean… Who’s to say that my future, 25 year-old daughter wouldn’t blow it on shoes or, gulp, drugs, instead of a wedding or down payment??? Right? When I went to fight him on this point, he said that “kids these days are later to launch…” That phrase totally stopped me (and my argument) dead in my tracks. Why? Because he’s right!

I’m in my late 30s, and my parents and most of my friends’ parents got married and had kids by 25(ish). Seems totally insane, right? Seriously, I couldn’t even imagine having a kid in my 20s, let alone being responsible for his/her well-being! And, when you look at the trend as far as age in relation to weddings these days, people are getting married later in their lives because, they are later to launch! They are leaving their parents homes later, they are settling into their careers later, they are finding love later. So, it makes sense that they are getting married later. And later is better for a lot of reasons. Why?

1. You’re done weeding. Huh? You’re done weeding out the bullshit. You’ve dated and dated, and now you know what you want. Gone are the days of sowing oats… Now, you’re aged to perfection, and you only want one oat to sow.

2. In the same way you know what you want in a partner, you have a better understanding of what your wedding will look like. More of what you want, less of what other people want, and most likely, more of your own money. You begin to think practically and take responsibility for that practicality.

3. Perspective. Yup! My favorite word. You care more about the person you’re going to marry, and your life after the wedding, than the wedding itself. I mean, you’re excited about your wedding day, but it’s not the only day you will look back on fondly… Especially when you have your whole lives to look forward to!

4. It’s not your parent’s wedding, it’s yours, and the people on the “A” list are on the only list. Not to mention, they actually want to be there. An added bonus? You know everybody who’s coming.

5. You’re used to yourself, and you like who you’ve become. No more “faking it until you make it”. Or settling. You’d rather be alone than settle for the wrong dude (or lady).

So, later to launch…? Okay Mr. Attorney, I understand what you’re saying, and now that I’ve had time to let it marinate, I’m going to rest my case.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner to Launch Kendall + Kylie Handbags

It’s probably an understatement to say that the ubiquitous Jenner sisters are on a roll, but the youngest members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan are staking more of a claim in the fashion landscape with the addition of handbags to their contemporary label Kendall + Kylie.
Set for a fall debut at major luxury retailers and specialty shops worldwide, including Bloomingdale’s, Holt Renfrew, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue, the collection comprises 18 styles priced from $ 75 to $ 450 retail.
The overall aesthetic is both clean and sophisticated, and definitely aspirational, both for younger fans emulating the sisters’ style, and for the bags themselves, which borrow some style cues from some of the Jenners’ favorite luxury labels. The styles — two of which are purse charms — represent both Kendall’s feminine tomboy look, and Kylie’s streetwear edge. There’s a sleek pebble leather backpack, a clean satchel style, a mini bucket bag and an oversized clutch. The sisters’ inspiration came from some of their favorite travel destinations, including Big Sur, Tokyo and London.
“Bags are definitely a must-have accessory; they can take your outfit to a whole new level,” said Kendall. “Our handbag collection is super modern and pairs really well with pieces from our ready-to-wear

Uniqlo and Lemaire Have a Winning Weekend Launch

Already committed to making the Uniqlo and Lemaire collaboration more than a one-season wonder, Uniqlo has added production runs for fall in advance of holiday sales.
Lines formed outside Uniqlo’s three Manhattan stores for Friday morning’s launch and some stores sold out of select items by lunchtime, according to Justin Kerr, director of merchandising. There were also lines intermittently throughout the weekend as stock was replenished, and a velvet rope was set up in the SoHo store to keep everyone orderly.
“It was our best example of how high the demand was. With this launch, we put up a special landing page 30 days before. It received such a strong reception from so many different people. We were really excited to see so much engagement before the collaboration started. That carried through to the online sales,” Kerr said. “We launched it at midnight on Thursday, and by 8 a.m. Friday there were very exciting results even in those eight hours when everyone was presumably sleeping. Some must have missed some sleep to order Lemaire.”
Knitwear and outerwear were the strongest categories, with a $ 170 cashmere blended robe coat and a $ 70 cashmere blend square sweater being two bestsellers. An assortment of the 31-piece

Gaultier Hits Tokyo to Launch Japan Apparel Collection

Jean Paul Gaultier held court at the French embassy in Tokyo on Wednesday to launch his collection for Japanese retail giant Seven & i Holdings. The project is Gaultier’s first fashion foray outside couture since he discontinued his own pret-a-porter line last year.
The designer said he was overwhelmed by the work involved in producing luxury ready-to-wear and the need to churn out several collections a year.
“I wanted to concentrate on what I like. What do I like? To make couture. To make pret-a-porter also, but not like the way it is now, because now you have to make pre-collection, cruise, all that, you know, which is a lot a lot of demand. And it doesn’t really stop…which is not good, because we have no time to think,” Gaultier told a press conference. “So I prefer to be free of that, and to make some capsules and some experiences and some new adventures that give me more freedom. And in that way I feel more free and more energetic and a little more excited.”
The line, called Jean Paul Gaultier for Sept Premieres, goes on sale Wednesday online and at Seibu and Sogo department stores and Ito Yokado general stores across Japan.

Supra Marks Noiz Shoe Launch With First Print Campaign

To mark the launch of the Noiz, its new lifestyle sneaker, Supra, which was recently acquired by K-Swiss Global Brands, is introducing its first print campaign.
Titled, “Always on the Run,” the ad features skater Boo Johnson wearing the Noiz. The print campaign, which will kick off this week, coincides with a microsite and an Instagram initiative where Supra ambassadors, including photographer Humza Deas, Australian street artist Meggs, filmmaker Sergi Castellà and chef Michael Voltaggio, create their own branded content. Fans can submit photos and videos using the #AlwaysOnTheRun hashtag and the handle @SupraFootwear for a chance to win the Noiz sneakers or a free trip to New York.
“There is no one that’s more of a creative and independent spirit than the skateboarder,” said Robert “Cape” Capener, Supra’s brand president. “They are constantly on the move and have an insatiable curiosity about what’s around the corner.”
According to Capener, this campaign marks the beginning of a much larger 2016 plan, which will include celebrating the company’s 10th anniversary and a larger global push. And despite the change in ownership, Supra’s ethos remains the same, Capener said.
“From day one, we’ve said that Supra was born from skate and we are going to stick

Shay Mitchell, Kohl’s Launch Ath-leisure Line

“PRETTY LITTLE LIARS” STAR LAUNCHES LINE WITH KOHL’S: Move over, Kate Hudson and Carrie Underwood. “Pretty Little Liars” star Shay Mitchell is the latest actress to step onto the ath-leisure playing field.
Mitchell inked a deal with Kohl’s to launch Fit to Wander, a collection of sports bras, graphic Ts, fashion tanks and leggings retailing from $ 24 to $ 48, for the back-to-school season. “The line speaks to my personal philosophy of embracing all that life has to offer and being the best you can be, whatever your passions,” said Mitchell. Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief merchandising and customer officer, added, “It embodies Shay’s adventurous spirit and fashion savvy.” The line offers details such as leggings with adjustable waistbands that can be worn up high for more coverage or folded down for a low-rise look, strategic seams and panels that flatter the figure, extended bust bands on bras to reduce garment shifting and chafing, and racer back straps for a full range of motion. The leggings and sports bras are made from Wandertech, a polyester-Spandex blend with sweat wicking and a 4-way stretch.

P.J. Salvage on Track to Launch Intimates, Boost Kids’ Offering

Lounge and sleepwear brand P.J. Salvage is set to launch intimates and is also preparing for a re-set of its kids’ offering under new parent Delta Galil Industries Ltd.
P.J. Salvage’s parent, Loomworks Apparel, was acquired for an undisclosed sum by the Tel Aviv-based firm in a deal revealed this month. The transaction is expected to close Friday.
Nothing changes operationally as a result of the deal and P.J. Salvage headquarters will remain in Irvine, Calif., P.J. Salvage chief executive officer Peter Burke said.
“The whole acquisition by Delta certainly opens up a whole new world for us as far as worldwide distribution and production,” Burke said.
The company thinks there’s room in the market for its assortment of bralettes, bandeaux, thongs, hipsters, shorts and kimonos — some of which can be mixed and matched with casual day looks.
“P.J. Salvage has a really strong brand following worldwide and the time is right for us to launch intimates,” Burke said. “We’re not trying to compete against a lot of the other brands putting out a basic lace, thong and panty.”
The collection includes roughly 30 stockkeeping units priced at retail, come February, between $ 18 and $ 70.

Jos. A. Bank Veteran to Launch Online Men’s Business

A new player is poised to enter the men’s wear scene.
Steve Marshall, the former divisional vice president of merchandising for Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc., has teamed with some of his co-workers at the Hampshire, Md.-based chain to create Wilkes & Riley.
The business, which will launch in November as an online play, will offer a full collection of men’s wear, from tailored clothing and furnishings to sportswear.
“Retail has been in my blood since I was a kid,” Marshall told WWD. He started his career at Bugle Boy and moved on to Merry Go Round before joining Jos. A. Bank in 1999.
Marshall said he was offered the opportunity to remain with Bank by its new owners, Men’s Wearhouse, which purchased the business for $ 1.8 billion last year, but didn’t want to relocate to California, where the corporation is headquartered. So he opted instead to remain in Maryland and use the skills he had acquired over the years in sourcing and merchandising to open a new company.
Wilkes & Riley will be self-financed and Marshall said he has some other investors as well.
“I always wanted to run my own company and be the head of the ship,” he said. “Jos. A. Bank was a

Mary Katrantzou, Adidas Launch Second Capsule Collection

EIGHTIES EDGE: “I’m an Eighties baby, and it was amazing to just go back and look at all of these aerobics classes and the Seoul Olympics and just take symbols from that,” said Mary Katrantzou at the launch party in London for her second capsule collection for Adidas Originals. “We started thinking about symbolism and how we can take that within the context of Adidas. But also the silhouettes — there are little tennis dresses and diving suits and track tops so I thought that was a fun spin on the idea of symbols.” The party took place on the rooftop of Snap Studios in East London, with totem poles made by Katrantzou and the prop designer Richard Storey and adorned with the designer’s prints.
Katrantzou used collages made from sports items including a stopwatch, a tennis racket and a badminton shuttlecock for the 24-piece collection. Pieces include a structured T-shirt adorned with patches and crystals, a reversible varsity jacket, a crepe tank dress, leggings, tracksuit bottoms, boyfriend T-shirts, boy shorts, jersey swimsuits and footwear. Katrantzou also put a holographic spin on footwear with bold patterns and floral jacquards.
