Maison Atia Opens Pop-Up in Chicago

Faux fur brand Maison Atia held its first Chicago pop-up shop and pet adoption event over five days — from Wednesday to Sunday — at PAWS Chicago, a Chicago-based animal shelter.
“It’s really about showing our brand to Chicago for the first time with the PAWS community,” said Chloe Mendel, the creative force behind Maison Atia. In partnership with the animal shelter, her brand’s tagline, “Buy a coat, save a puppy,” means that every coat sold, whether at a pop-up event or online, helps provide a homeless dog or cat transportation to a no-kill shelter.
Mendel is a sixth-generation furrier and daughter of Gilles Mendel, whose previous fashion stints included designing ready-to-wear and couture for her family business J. Mendel. She launched Maison Atia in November 2017. “The faux fur world was untapped and looked at, kind of, like rock ‘n’ roll. I want to change that conversation and really discern the quality of the faux fur. I look for color and quality,” said Mendel, who splits her time between New York City and Chicago, where she lives with boyfriend and Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, their son Augustus Juppiter, daughter Philomena Clementine, two dogs and two cats.

Lola Burstein-Rykiel Drawing Inspiration From Modern Dance Pioneer Loie Fuller for Maison St. Germain

For its October installation in Paris, Maison St. Germain has turned to Lola Burstein-Rykiel.
As creative director for the upcoming project, she is culling ideas from her hometown to imagine a multiscale experience for the elderflower liqueur. Still in the early stages of developing the art installation, Burstein-Rykiel said “an abundance of flowers and sensuality creates this ephemeral joy” that she can connect with. Another starting point is Loie Fuller’s Serpentine dance, a lasting image of the Art Nouveau Movement first performed in Paris at the Folies Bergère in 1892.
As a former student at Martha Graham’s Dance School, Burstein-Rykiel reviewed old videos of Fuller dancing the Serpentine. “Loie was just so beautiful. She transformed herself from a flower to a butterfly to a woman just by her doing it herself with her costumes and the lighting. That’s what was so interesting. It was not just the choreography. The costume, the lighting and the movement is as important as the rest. It was like a surreal art performance before her time,” Burstein-Rykiel said. “She pushed the limits back in choosing to do everything by herself. When I was looking at her dance, I was like ‘Whoa, this looks a bit like an

Toiletpaper’s Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari Partner with Maison Kitsuné for Capsule Collection

COMPLETELY SURREAL: Toiletpaper’s cofounders Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari have extended their surrealistic influence through a new collaboration with Maison Kitsuné.
Meant to challenge the limits of fashion as art, Toiletpaper’s bright and racy images have been splashed onto T-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, iPhone cases and tote bags. Available as of Saturday in Maison Kitsuné’s New York store, the 15-piece collection is a second act, The first directional capsule collection between both parties debuted in Tokyo. An image of a fluffy white cat surrounded by white mice has been stamped on a smartphone case, and a close-up of a tongue covered with red, white and blue toothpaste decorates a tote bag. Retail prices range from $ 45 to $ 630 for the new genderless designs.
As the evocative name of their magazine suggests, Cattelan and Ferrari are known for pushing boundaries through their artistic and commercial enterprises. Their black humor is evident in Toiletpaper’s collection of plates, mugs, tablecloths, teapots, soaps, umbrellas and other items for the Italian design company Seletti. A plunger, for example, is among the unexpected imagery they have used for that collaboration. Ferrari has shot a few seasonal campaigns for Maison Kitsuné in the past. Earlier this year the design duo

Maison Margiela Collaborates With Mackintosh on Trenchcoats

ALL WHITE: Maison Margiela’s iconic white lab coat is ready to hit the streets.
The Paris-based fashion house has collaborated with outerwear maker Mackintosh to create two exclusive trenchcoat designs for its spring 2018 men’s wear collection, including a white version featuring signature details such as white horn buttons and four stitches on the back.
Martin Margiela settled on the white lab coat as a staff uniform shortly after founding the maison in 1988, as part of the brand’s collective identity. It is worn by everyone from artistic director John Galliano to the house’s interns.
The second design is inspired by the Mackintosh archives, with the collar and cuffs reworked using the so-called décortiqué process that Galliano explored in his spring Artisanal collection.

The waterproof coats are made from rubberized fabrics, with all seams taped and glued to create a seamless effect. The two numbered limited-edition coats will be available from December in Maison Margiela boutiques, Mackintosh flagships and selected multibrand stores.
The collaboration will also include several women’s looks, featured in Galliano’s spring collection, which will go on sale in March.
The Scotland-based Mackintosh, which is owned by Japanese group Yagi Tsusho, has been upping its fashion

Dior Maison Partners With Themis Zouganeli on Tableware Collection

LONDON — Dior Maison has tapped Themis Zouganeli for its latest homewares collaboration.
Zouganeli and Dior Maison creative director Cordelia de Castellane, who was appointed to this position in March, were friends who shared a love of Mykonos before the collaboration came about and had discussed the possibility of working together in some capacity before the collaboration became a reality following talks with Dior in February.
The Themis Zouganeli x Dior Maison collection, called “Skorpios,” consists of tableware, including dinner plates, dessert plates, cups, espresso cups, platters and serving bowls, all of which are now available at the Dior Maison stores in London, to be followed by launches in Paris, Geneva, Monaco, New York and Asia later this month.
This collaboration follows partnerships with designers including Yann Debelle De Montby, Michael Cailloux and India Madhavi on items like a backgammon box, playing cards and ceramic plates that launched in the House of Dior boutique in London earlier this year.
Work has already begun on a second collaboration for fall 2017 between Dior Maison and Zouganeli, who launched her eponymous homewares collection, Themis Z, in May this year, following a successful career as an interior designer.
Themis Z is stocked at retailers including Alex Eagle Studio,

Maison Kitsuné Men’s Spring 2018

Maison Kitsuné designers Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki took a cue from the U.S. once again for their spring collection. But rather than focusing on American popular culture like they did for fall, the irreverent duo envisioned a made-up place, called “Romance.” It’s their ideal fusion between Los Angeles and Miami, with everything that imaginary mix conjures up. Hot weather? Check. Easy living? Check. Surfing culture? Check. Speedboats? Check.
In keeping with the line’s “last exit to Romance” theme, flowers popped up in prints, and silhouettes were looser than before, including an oversized coat and longer, roomier shorts and sweatshirts. Natural fabrics that were treated for an already lived-in look abounded, featuring colors such as beige, light brown, rust and ochre.
The collection merged Americana with the label’s Franco-Japanese preppy kitsch signature, to fun effect.

Melania Trump Chooses Maison Ullens for Brigitte Macron Meeting

BELGIAN SUPPORT: Just as she had chosen the Italian label Dolce & Gabbana for Wednesday’s meeting with Pope Francis in Rome, First Lady Melania Trump once again paid tribute to the host nation by wearing a Belgian designer in Brussels Thursday.
For her first photo-op with French First Lady Brigitte Macron at the Magritte Museum, FLOTUS wore a custom-made belted leather jacket and skirt from Maison Ullens with Manolo Blahnik snakeskin heels. Trump’s suit was made specifically for her trip to Brussels with Maison Ullens’ founder Baroness Myriam Ullens de Schooten and creative director Kim Ullens, according to a company spokeswoman. The Danish Laursen, who previously worked for Christian Lacroix, Azzaro, Elie Saab and Kenzo, designs the collection, worked on sketches based on Trump’s requests.
Trump’s team approached the company since she wanted to wear a Belgian label, a spokeswoman for Maison Ullens said. The company’s founder Ullens de Schooten started the company in 2009 after recognizing the lack of chic travel wear, while traveling. She met the first lady during a fitting. The French Belgian designer focused on knitwear, leather and cashmere pieces including reversible. Trump joins the ranks of such other Maison Ullens shoppers as IMF’s Christine Lagarde, Catherine Deneuve

Chloé to Open ‘Maison’

SAVE THE DATE: Chloé may be poised for a fresh chapter under its new creative director, Natacha Ramsay-Levi, but the house is also keen to protect its past — and the story of the Chloé girl.
Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye, the brand’s ceo, at a leisurely seaside lunch Saturday during the Hyères fashion and photography festival in the south of France, revealed the brand will open a “maison” dedicated to the house’s heritage on July 2 during Paris Couture Week.
The news comes a day after French Culture Minister Audrey Azoulay unveiled a series of measures to safeguard the country’s assets, including a permanent fashion collection, at a time when a number of couture houses, including Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent, are moving to preserve their archives with state-of-the-art conservation facilities.
The multi-purpose Maison Chloé building will house the brand’s archives and showrooms as well as a photography studio, according to de la Bourdonnaye. The house’s fashion shows will also be presented there, he said, as well as exhibitions to “make the brand more accessible to the public.”
The site’s inaugural exhibition – curated by Judith Clark – will be dedicated to Guy Bourdin, “the photographer who photographed Chloé the most.”
“We want it to be an artistic place [dedicated to] femininity,” added de la

MM6 Maison Margiela RTW Spring 2016

An army of eclectic-looking models stomped out into an East London warehouse space to showcase the MM6 Maison Margiela collection, which highlighted clothes that looked as if they’d been culled from a futuristic thrift store.
 
One model wore a smocked camisole dress seemingly crafted from plastic bag material, while another wore an oversized sweater adorned with an airbrushed mystical horse motif, offset with a spangly sequined scarf wound over her waist and shoulders. According to the label’s show notes, the collection took its cues from “London and the creative community surrounding MM6,” and it certainly had an artsy, thrown-together feel.
 
But what the diffusion line wasn’t so heavy on was real-world clothes – aside from the odd pair of drapey pants or denim vest – for those customers not balancing on the creative cutting edge.

Maison Standards, Pascal Humbert Team Up

NOT QUITE STANDARD: French fashion label Maison Standards is teaming up with uniform designer Pascal Humbert to create a collection of a dozen pieces.
The new line, set to launch in September, initially includes two suits for women, two for men, a skirt, military shirts and a sailor coat,with prices ranging from 70 euros, or $ 80 at current exchange, for the shirts to 195 euros, or $ 222, for the navy sailor coat. The suits are to be manufactured at Italian high-end woolen mill Vitale Barberis.
“For us, it’s about broadening our offer, with a new wardrobe that is more chic, more structuring,” said Uriel Karsenti, founder of Maison Standards. Karsenti said Humbert’s design work on uniforms grabbed his attention because of its similarities with Maison Standards’ raison d’être, which is to “find the right harmony between discretion and recognizable symbols.”
The Paris-based designer, who in the past has presented a signature label during couture week, designs uniforms for luxury brands, including most recently Biotherm.
“[The silhouettes of the Maison Standards line] are very androgynous. But men’s clothes are made for men and women’s for women. We have different measurements,” Humbert said.
The same holds true when it comes to making uniforms:  “It’s nearly impossible to make something that fits

Maison Kitsuné Opens Second New York City Store

NEW YORK — Maison Kitsuné has landed in the Lower East Side.
The French and Japanese fashion brand has opened its second New York City store on Rivington Street between Bowery and Chrystie Streets.
Although the block isn’t a prime retail destination, the 700-square-foot shop fits right in. It sits next to Green Fingers, a Japanese botanical shop that will fill the new space with plants, and is across the street from the Freemans mini empire, whose lifestyle proposition — it expanded from a restaurant to a barber shop and men’s wear brand — is quite similar to that of Maison Kitsuné, which started as a music label, evolved into an apparel brand, and now has two Café Kitsuné shops in Paris and one in Tokyo.
Masaya Kuroki, who cofounded the brand in 2002 with Gildas Loaëc, Daft Punk’s former manager, is pleased with the location.
“It’s important to feel the neighborhood. There’s already a life and culture here,” said the architect-turned-designer, who was happy to see three stylish men attempt to browse the store before it officially opened last Friday.
Kuroki thought in dichotomies when designing the store. While he wanted the space to be a rougher take than the brand’s first New York

Maison Margiela RTW Fall 2015

The model clutched her paper-bag purse like it was the most precious thing on Earth and marched headlong down the runway, as if tightening into a strong wind.
 
John Galliano had brought a gust of his hobo poetry — and also a visual metaphor for a recent chapter in his biography — as he stepped back onto the Paris fashion stage as creative director of Maison Margiela. His first women’s ready-to-wear collection for the house that Martin built was a winner: spunky, approachable and full of personality.
 
If the artisanal couture collection he showed in January left the audience wanting, here there were plenty of fine, real-world clothes: narrow maxi coats with that twinge of vintage Margiela always peddled; tattered tartan miniskirts that winked to Galliano’s London club days; and the kind of delicate, hourglass gown in black lace that Mr. Bias has always done so effortlessly.
 
Another daring brand reinvention is getting under way, and Galliano — rebounding from anti-Semitic outbursts that led to his ouster from Dior in 2011 and a spectacular fall from grace — demonstrated range and finesse, not letting Margiela’s conceptual roots overpower his own romantic inclinations. For every patent peacoat with roughly hacked off sleeves there was
