Kim Jones Pops Up at Kent & Curwen, Edward Crutchley Shows

WAIT AND SEE: Kim Jones became a front-row celebrity — albeit a self-effacing one — during London Fashion Week Men’s, popping up in the front row of the Kent & Curwen and Edward Crutchley shows over the weekend.
The designer, who will make his debut for Dior Homme later this month, is friends with David Beckham (he dressed him for the royal wedding a few weeks ago) and sat with the family during Sunday’s Kent & Curwen show. He’s also been a friend and mentor to Crutchley for years, having worked with him at Louis Vuitton.
“It’s my last weekend before Paris and I wanted to see and support my friends,” said Jones after the Kent & Curwen show, which started with lunch before models wound their way around the long white tables dotted with red roses.
Asked what his first Dior Homme collection was going to look like, he wasn’t giving anything up. “It’s a surprise,” said the designer, who in March was named artistic director of ready-to-wear and accessory collections at Dior Homme.

Melissa Pops Up on Abbot Kinney for Summer Shop

FEET TO STREET: Accessories company Melissa on Friday celebrates the grand opening of a summer pop-up on Abbot Kinney Boulevard to serve what the firm said is an important market for the brand. 
The 350-square-foot space, done in conjunction with the company’s U.S. distributor, is located at 1108 Abbot Kinney Boulevard. It is to remain open for two months, stocked with the company’s footwear and accessories for women, men, girls and toddlers. The offering will also reflect the company’s new unisex approach to sizing. 
Within that assortment will be the company’s shoe and bag collaborations with Baja East, Jason Wu, Salinas and Vivienne Westwood. 
“Abbot Kinney really embodies the Melissa vibe. The atmosphere, warm weather and willingness of locals to be unique and free with the way they dress and accessorize drew us to the space,” said Melissa vice president of marketing Raquel Metz Scherer. “Venice has such an individual spirit, different from the rest of L.A.”
As far as how the company thinks about retail elsewhere, Metz Scherer said there’s also focus on its Galeria Melissa concept in New York’s SoHo. 
“We are continuing to expand our presence in New York City, specifically at our U.S. flagship, Galeria Melissa….” she said. “We want the store to

Gentle Monster Pops Up at Dover Street Market New York

Gentle Monster has popped up at Dover Street Market New York.
The South Korean eyewear brand’s ephemeral boutique is mounted through June 18 on Dover Street Market’s first floor.
A limited-edition, black-and-gold version of Gentle Monster’s Cobalt style has been created to mark the occasion.
While an eyewear brand, Gentle Monster is also regarded for its innovative and experimental retailing strategies. It employs carpenters and architects full-time to execute conceptual interior design projects.
For Dover Street Market, the brand has found inspiration in the extraterrestrial. The company has dubbed its installation “Passengers,” predicated on a narrative where “a crew of extraterrestrial creatures embark on a passage through time and space in search of their next home. Collecting precious stones and flowers along the way, the crew is able to produce energy for their ship and tools.”
This manifests as wire, wood and stone sculptures that resemble the work of artist Nick Cave.
“Dover Street Market is a resting place for creation and magnitude, and our presence within the DSM New York space feels natural because of this. Our pursuit of experimental and episodic content is rooted in the in-person experience. It’s in these conceptual spaces that our creations are able to blur the divide between eyewear

Piaget Pops Up in Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills

Pop-up shops aren’t just for democratically priced goods. For the first time ever, luxury jeweler Piaget is popping up — inside Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills. The shop-within-a-shop, officially open for business next week through early September, features 22 one-of-a-kind high jewelry and timepiece creations that have never been shown in the U.S. and are normally unavailable outside a Piaget flagship boutique — of which there is one on nearby Rodeo Drive.
Titled “Sunlight Journey,” the collection showcases designs inspired by Mediterranean gardens, Venice, the Silk Road, the Amalfi Coast and Palm Springs, Calif. The 13 jewelry pieces and nine watches range in price from $ 11,800 to more than $ 800,000, making them among the highest-ticket items available in the store.
Among them are a white and yellow diamond and ruby sunburst collar necklace and matching earrings, a diamond-inlaid gold cuff with a timepiece hidden underneath a cabochon opal, a negative-space cuff with a large fire opal center stone, and watches featuring sunset-colored gemstones on the face.
The custom installation within the main floor precious jewelry department conveys the sun theme with a brass sunbeam-like wall installation and specially designed vitrines. The pop-up also features a dedicated presentation counter and stylized lounge seating.

Kriss Soonik Pops Up at Isetan

TOKYO — Estonian lingerie and loungewear designer Kriss Soonik made a personal appearance at a pop-up shop for her brand Wednesday night. Hosted by Isetan’s flagship department store in the Shinjuku area of the Japanese capital, the pop-up will be open through Nov. 14.
To mark the opening, Soonik conducted a “live photo shoot” in front of a small group of gathered customers. A model dressed in Soonik’s designs posed in front of the entrance to the pop-up, while the designer gave direction and snapped away on her camera. Afterward, she posed for photos with customers.
The European lingerie brand now counts its largest market as Japan, where it has had a presence for three years.
“For me, Japan was always a huge inspiration for my collections, but I never realized when I actually came here that I will find the people who love it most as well,” Soonik said. “I just had a chat with some of our [Japanese] customers and tried to find out what the reason is, and I think that the main concept that keeps popping up is the combination of sexy and cute. Most of the European and American lingerie brands are quite strong, sexy-strong as we

David Donahue Pops Up at Rothmans

The David Donahue pop-up at Rothmans. 

David Donahue is tired of keeping a low profile.
The men’s wear brand has been around since 1973 and is carried in such high-end retailers as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and more than 200 specialty stores. But siblings Rob and Suzy Donohue, who now run the company started by their father, are hoping to heighten the brand’s visibility.
The company started as a men’s accessories manufacturer but over the years has expanded into all categories including suits, sweaters, jeans and outerwear.
The first move to get its name better known came in 2016 when the brand started dressing the NBC Sports football commentators. That relationship will expand into David Donahue dressing the sportscasters at the Winter Olympics in South Korea next year as well, Rob Donohue revealed.
On Thursday night, the brand took another step forward by opening its first pop-up shop inside of the Rothmans men’s store on Union Square in Manhattan.
Rothmans’ president Ken Giddon said this is the first time in the history of the store’s rotating pop-up program that the inventory was sparse before the party. “It started selling since we put it in,” he said. “This is a great opportunity to showcase a

Ciara’s Ex Future Pops Up on the Sidelines at Her Husband Russell Wilson’s NFL Game

Ciara‘s ex Future had fans talking when he popped up on the sidelines to root for his hometown team, the Atlanta Falcons, as they faced off against the Seattle Seahawks in Georgia on Saturday afternoon.

A photo was taken of the hip hop artist and shared on Twitter on Saturday, with the caption, “Falcons got future Hendrix on the sideline they’re liable to win by 21.”

For the uninitiated, Ciara is married to Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

It’s unclear if Ciara was at the game but she did share a photo of her fellow pregnant pal, Seahawks DeShawn Shead’s wife Jessica Shead, just before the game on an airplane.

“We Were Talking and Our Babies Were Talking Too,” she wrote in the post, which showed her and Shead’s growing bellies.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

And while Ciara and Future may have been engaged and in love at one point, they are far from friendly exes. After Future blasted her on Twitter last January and claimed she was preventing the rapper from seeing their 19-month-old son Future Zahir, a source close to the singer told PEOPLE the claims were not true.

“Ciara has said that Future uses the situation to promote his music by staying in the press using her name,” said the source of the exes, who ended their engagement in August 2014.

In a series of tweets, Future, 33, called Ciara a “bitch” with “control problems” who forced him to “go through lawyers to see baby future,” adding that he pays his ex “15k a month.”

Less than one month later, in February, the star sued her ex for $ 15 million in a slander and libel lawsuit.

In the court papers obtained by PEOPLE, Ciara pointed out several interviews in which Future accused her of using their child in publicity stunts and claimed he’d had at least 19 visitations with baby Future (the rapper claimed in a series of tweets his ex was withholding their son from him).

“She just wants what’s best for her and her baby,” a source close to Ciara told PEOPLE. “She is a really great mom. Baby Future is attached to her and a super smart kid. She’s really patient and loving with him.”

According to TMZ, Ciara dropped the libel claim in October, but is still suing for “false light.”

Aside from the recent drama with her ex, Ciara has had a happy first year of marriage. She wed Wilson in July in an English castle and the couple announced in October that they were expecting their first child together.

The couple hasn’t been shy about showing their support for one another. After their nuptials last year, Wilson reflected on the best moment of the big day.

“I’ll tell you, the best part of the wedding was watching her walk down the aisle. I had so many , but to see her gracefully walk down the aisle in that long train … and to realize I was going to spend the rest of my life with her gives me chills,” Wilson said shortly after their nuptials. “Ever since the first day I met her, she’s always been, honestly, my best friend. We’ve been so close.”

The Reindeer Pops Up for Two Nights in Support of Sarabande

REINDEER REIGN: Amid the boughs of snow-dusted branches and garlands of frosted foliage, it was impossible not to feel a little bit festive at the return of The Reindeer, an immersive temporary Christmas dining affair by Bistrotheque, the London restaurant that’s now more institution than eating establishment.
“I love Christmas,” said Tallulah Harlech, who has been busy styling shoots for Pop and Adidas, and working with designer Barbara Casasola. “I go home for the carol service at the church across the road, and we still decorate the tree with the decorations we made as kids. Mum [Amanda Harlech] got us to make them out of plastic milk bottle lids.”
Jeweler Shaun Leane is opting for more of a red hot and green Christmas: “I’m going to South Africa for three weeks,” on safari, he said. “We’re going to drive down from Johannesburg through the Karoo [region]. It’s time for a nice break.”
The evening was presented by — and in aid of — Sarabande, the Lee Alexander McQueen charitable foundation that helps students hoping to work in the creative industries. Gareth Pugh and his partner Carson McColl stood by Tord Boontje’s fang-shaped Ketel One Bar, taking in the wintry scene created for Sarabande earlier this year.

Seilenna Swimwear Pops Up at Uhuru Beach in Amagansett

POP-UP CULTURE: Seilenna, the New York-based swimwear line founded by Annelies De Rouck, is heading out east this weekend.

Located inside a barn, the shop will remain open until Sept. 6.

Man Pops The Question To High School Sweetheart After Her Last Chemo Session

These high school sweethearts aren’t even married yet, and they already know the meaning of “in sickness and in health.”

Lucas D’Onofrio’s girlfriend Tamara was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in February. She recently finished her last of six chemotherapy sessions. If that wasn’t already cause for celebration, D’Onofrio made the day extra special by planning a surprise proposal for her at Boca Raton Regional Hospital.

He decorated the room with heart balloons, flameless candles, roses and photographs, and then got down on one knee to say the magic words, “Will you marry me?”

“I wanted it to be a symbol or closing the chapter of cancer in her life and opening a new chapter with our lives together,” D’Onofrio told BuzzFeed.

Afterwards, family and friends came by the hospital to celebrate the couple’s big news. Watch the video above, and fast-forward to the 2:00 mark to see the actual proposal.
