“It’s really fun creating with Selena. She has a strong point of view and knows what she wants. We chat, catch up and just play — it’s really natural,” Vevers said.
Said Gomez, “I felt so relieved and so proud when I saw the collection for the first time. You put so much thought and work behind it; it truly represents who I am. It is very soft, it has a combination of silks and lace, sweaters and hoodies. Combining all of that into one closet feels so good.”
The opening will coincide with a promotion for fans to shop the Selena Bond Bag, one of two new styles the

Armarium Sets Southampton Pop-up

Armarium has packed up some of its more casual, albeit spectacular designs and set up a pop-up shop at 28 C Jobs Lane in Southampton, N.Y., through Labor Day. 
The luxury rental site hopes to coax clients toward cutting-edge designers outside their comfort zones such as Brock, Johanna Ortiz and Christopher Kane.
The company’s vista beyond summer includes a permanent store in Manhattan. “We’re looking to build out more of a brick-and-mortar presence in New York later this year,” said chief executive officer Trisha Gregory, who cofounded the company with Alexandra Lind Rose, creative director at large. “We’ll be doing pop-ups in Dallas and Art Basel in Miami, and we’re planning something interesting for awards season in Los Angeles.”
The pop-up also features an assortment of unique pieces from complementary brands and special activations. Maison de Mode, the online ethical fashion destination partnered with Armarium on the pop-up. Hassan Pierre, who cofounded the company with Amanda Hearst, touted its “sustainable approach to fashion.”
Gregory said when clients fall in love with a piece, Armarium directs them to a retailer where the style can be purchased. In other instances, customers are looking for a more casual relationship with a garment, and prefer renting the item and taking it on a first

Selfridges Opens Eyewear Pop-up With Lily Cole’s Brand, Wires

THROWING SHADE: Selfridges is teaming with model and social entrepreneur Lily Cole to unveil a new collection from Wires, an eyewear brand cofounded by Cole and Yair Neuman.
The pop-up will run until July 15 in Selfridges’ personalization area on the lower ground floor.
For the second collection, Neuman took a modular approach to the design: An invisible hinge was added on the wire frame to allow the wearer to collapse and store the sunglasses with ease.
The sunglasses are created to be completely customizable, with lenses that can be switched and interchanged. “It’s a nice way to marry off a desire for newness and new designs and allow people to experiment and play — but to do so in a way that is less demanding on the material,” Cole said.
The wire frames — handmade by a family-run business in Italy — retail between 140 pounds and 270 pounds and the interchangeable rims retail at 50 pounds.
To mark the opening of the pop-up, Cole and Neuman have created a special-edition pair of glasses inspired by Selfridges’ heritage, priced at 220 pounds.
Sustainability was also a driving force behind the design. “We minimize waste in the production process because we 3-D print the rim instead

Playboi Carti Pop-up at Apt. 4B to Be Stocked With Exclusives

HIGHLY PROMOTIONAL: Looks like the latest house guest at Los Angeles concept shop Apt. 4B will be Playboi Carti.
The rapper, real name Jordan Terrell Carter, has announced he’ll play host to an exclusive pop-up within the boutique retailer on Los Angeles’ famed Fairfax Avenue best known as streetwear central with Supreme, Pink Dolphin, Diamond Supply Co. and other brands there.
Apt. 4B, started by designer JP Moronta, who goes by Moon, and Monique Carmen, in 2013 is a long-standing fixture on the street. Their shop is known for its eclectic store buildout that mimics the look of a studio apartment inhabited by a Nineties hip-hop fan with a TV playing movies on VHS tapes, kitchenette and bed. The window outside the apartment facing passersby on the street is regularly rebooted based on various themes, with past displays mirroring a Nineties cell phone store and vinyl outpost.
The Carti Apt. 4B pop-up on Saturday and Sunday is to feature a 15-piece collection of T-shirts, shorts, a hoodie and beanies exclusive to the store.
The Apt. 4B store window will display artwork from Carti’s most recent project with the rest of the store for the most part maintaining its Nineties aesthetic save for some posters,

Slowear to Host Pop-up Exhibit Featuring Augmented Reality

MILAN — Slowear, a Venice-based company of Made in Italy men’s heritage brands, will host a pop-up exhibition devoted to augmented reality during Milan Men’s Fashion Week.
Named “Reality, Expanded” and developed in collaboration with the Italian edition of Wired magazine and Alchemica — the original AR exhibition by Alkanoids studio — the exhibit aims to bridge fashion and technology.
To be staged at Slowear’s showroom in central Milan on June 18, the pop-up will house a special AR installation dedicated to the brands manufactured by the company. These include Incotex casual pants, Zanone high-end knitwear, Glanshirt casual shirts, Montedoro outerwear and Officina Slowear accessories and footwear.
“Behind our clothes there are many different stories to tell: stories about their long and complex production process, about the people who made them, about the brands and the ideas that gave them shape,” said Slowear president Roberto Compagno. “These stories epitomize the core values of Slowear, yet conveying them effectively is no easy task. Using augmented reality might be a creative and compelling way for showing our customers what happens behind the scene.”
In addition, the exhibition will showcase 32 illustrations suspended between the virtual and the physical worlds. Visitors will have the opportunity to add

The Pop-up Economy: Citizens of Humanity, Janessa Leone Partner at The Platform

Call it a pop-up economy. Perhaps a combination of retail uncertainty, high rents and fickle shoppers, the pop-up shop may soon need to change its definition as more and more of them appear in Los Angeles, and persist longer than the intended period. But the concept has not worn out its welcome at The Platform, the hipster retail collective in Culver City, Calif., which from the get-go has welcomed these “temporary” shops along with permanent ones.
One of the first to open there two years ago, The Edit by Freda Salvador and Janessa Leone, a partnership between the independently owned shoe brand and hat brand, respectively, has graduated to permanent status and is welcoming a pop-up of its own, with L.A.-based premium denim brand Citizens of Humanity.
The tie-up, which opens May 17, marks the first time The Edit has incorporated apparel items into its store, which necessitated bringing in some new fixtures and dressing rooms along with incorporating the jeans on the existing shelves with accessories.

Goop Celebrates Dallas Pop-up

GOOP DEE DOO: Dallas is stuck on Goop — and Gwyneth Paltrow.
When she invited local tastemakers to shop last Thursday at Goop’s pop-up in Highland Park Village, they came out in force.
“Goop has a way of curating the home, clothing and lifestyle in a way that is special and livable, and people love it,” said Christen Wilson, who’s on the board of the Tate Americas Foundation. “I bought a silver jacket for my son and a navy sweatshirt.”
“I love that you can have a margarita and buy some salt and maybe a Prada bag,” said Bagsnob blogger Tina Craig. “It’s like the next level.”
Paltrow and Highland Park Village co-owners Elisa and Stephen Summers returned the favor that evening, hosting them and 55 more for an al fresco dinner in the Summers’ verdant backyard. Among those attending were Nick Wooster, former Forty Five Ten executives Brian Bolke and Taylor Tomasi Hill, art consultants and dealers Lisa and John Runyon and blogger Jane Aldridge.
The party was an ode to Goop’s collaboration with Cointreau, which meant plenty of margaritas were washed down with fresh, veggie-oriented cuisine by chef Seamus Mullen.
“Delicious,” said Craig.

Patti + Ricky Focuses on Inclusive Design With New York Pop-up and Collaborations

ALL ARE WELCOME: Raised by parents whose careers were rooted in fashion retail, Alexandra Connell had an insider’s view of brand building from a young age. But her father Steven Bochner, who led Swatch’s sales into the U.S. and later served as president of Christian Dior Jewelry, always advised her to choose a different field.
He only coalesced, when she asked, “What if I sold empowerment?”
Her online store, pattiandricky.com, specializes in apparel and accessories for the physically challenged. “He always wanted me to help people and he knew that I was very passionate about wanting to help people with disabilities,” she said.
Launched about 10 months ago, the multibrand e-tailer caters to the more than 50 million Americans with either a mental or physical disability. Diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD as a child, Connell was always keenly aware of how disabilities and looking or acting differently could have a major impact on a person’s life. The company’s name is a tribute to her mother Patti who died 10 years ago and her cousin Ricky who is unable to walk or speak.
“My mother was always on trend and when she got sick with a brain tumor, there was nothing fashionable out there for her.

Chloe Gosselin Debuts London Pop-up

Chloe Gosselin is setting out to further establish her presence in London, with the opening of a pop-up store in Notting Hill.
The former model and footwear designer, who launched her eponymous label four years ago, said she wanted to have a space where she can showcase her collections in their entirety and meet customers.
“We wanted to be able to show all of our styles, not just the bits and pieces that stores pick up, and make the proper introduction of the brand to London. It’s a market that offers great opportunity, so I want to have a presence and get inspired by the fashion here,” said Gosselin, who celebrated her London debut with a dinner at Somerset House’s Spring restaurant.

The brand, which is best recognized for its use of bold colors, ruched fabrics and feminine bows, is stocked at Boutique 1 in the U.K.
The pop-up is located at the Pippa store in West London, a retail space by the former editor and retailer Pippa Vosper, which is dedicated to offering sample sales as well as designer takeovers. When no sample sales are on, Vosper utilizes the space to host young labels looking to showcase their collections — both discounted and full

Milly Looks to Boost West Coast Presence With Fred Segal Pop-up

CALIFORNIA VIBES: Milly cofounder and creative director Michelle Smith always felt her brand had a California aesthetic to it. A new pop-up at Fred Segal’s Sunset Boulevard flagship could help the company in boosting the line’s physical presence on the West Coast.
“I have a big presence on the East Coast and other regions like Chicago and then the South, and I can see from milly.com that I have a tremendous demand from the West Coast, but I don’t have a very strong physical presence here with my product,” Smith said of why the Fred Segal pop-up made sense. “It’s really exciting to have a physical presence here now and be able to really meet customers.”
Smith was in town to not only show her fall line to fashion editors but also prepare for Tuesday’s unveiling of a six-week pop-up at Fred Segal, which will also include Milly-dedicated windows for the next two weeks. The windows will feature some of the pieces from an exclusive capsule done in collaboration with Fred Segal, in addition to neon art curated especially for the pop-in, with a focus around themes of female empowerment and self-care.

Jamie Anderson Shares Favorite Olympic Moments at ‘Bridezillas’ Pop-up

TRUE BLUE MEMORIES: Olympic gold medalist snowboarder Jamie Anderson made a drive-by at one of Times Square’s lesser-known destinations Thursday morning — WE TV’s pop-up “Bridezillas” Museum of Natural Hysteria.
As the first American woman to win two gold medals in snowboarding — first in Sochi and last month in Pyeongchang, Anderson has reason to hit the “Scream Booth,” but her placidness didn’t really translate. “I went in there but I had no energy to scream. I don’t like screaming. I did a little silent one. I was only an ‘Agitated Angel’ but I tried my hardest.”
Still running after appearances on “Ellen,” “Conan,” “The Chew” and a Wednesday night red-eye flight, Anderson will be checking in with The Players’ Tribune before hitting the Ralph Lauren store in SoHo tonight with a few of her fellow Team USA athletes. Wearing a Ralph Lauren white button down shirt, distressed black jeans and no-brand scubalike sneakers she bought in a thrift store in South Korea, Anderson started a conversation about her Olympic experience with “I am so grateful,”dragging out the adjective for effect. “Look” she said pulling her 2018 gold medal from a back pocket and handing it over.

Natacha Ramsay-Levi Unveils Chloé Pop-up at Selfridges

After her big debut at Chloé last year, designer Natacha Ramsay-Levi is enjoying the fruits of her labor, as her inaugural collection for the French house is dropping in stores around the world.
On Friday, she was in London to celebrate the opening of a dedicated pop-up space at Selfridges, stocking her spring collection of ready-to-wear and accessories.
“It’s incredibly gratifying. I think there are two great elements of the job; putting everything together before the show and then seeing it on the streets and in stores. I love how people mix the different pieces; it’s the best feeling in the world when you see that it works on different women,” said the designer, who has been on tour as of late, to mark her collection’s debut. Earlier this month, she was in New York at Saks Fifth Avenue.
At Selfridges, she worked with the French artist Marion Verboom to inject more personal touches to the pop-up space, located at the department store’s women’s galleries. Verboom’s sculptures, which were also featured at the Chloé show space last season, are displayed throughout the pop-up alongside Ramsay-Levi’s signature Drew bags and lace-up boots, which are already selling well at retail.

Pharrell Williams, Alessandra Ambrosio Turn Out for Rimowa’s Pop-up Party

“There are so many pictures of me rolling my suitcases through the airport so I always consider the bags, too. Luggage is a huge part of my life. It’s something I’ve invested a lot in and I take a lot of time choosing,” said Dita Von Teese, who showed up camera-ready on Tuesday evening for Rimowa’s celebration of its Rodeo Drive pop-up concept shop. Also in the mix were Pharrell Williams and his wife Helen Lasichanh, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jasmine Sanders, stylist B. Akerlund and Shaun Ross.
Alexandre Arnault, the brand’s chief executive officer, showed off the latest products and touted the fun and interactive environment, as well as the tech innovations for the luxury luggage. Said Von Teese, “When I heard about these digital tags they have, I got extremely excited about that. If it [also] has a bag tracker in it, bonus points. I want to know where that bag is at all times.”
Airport dressing has become something of its own genre among celebrities, who never like to be unprepared for the cameras. Von Teese said, “It’s something I take into consideration because it only takes once when you land in Austria or somewhere and there’s full paparazzi waiting for you,

Fear of God, Maxfield Link for Holiday Pop-up

DAY OF RECKONING: Fear of God and Maxfield have gotten their holiday cheer on with a pop-up installation by the Los Angeles streetwear brand.
The store, located in the gallery space across from Maxfield’s Melrose Avenue location, is the site of the brand’s House of God pop-up in which Fear of God founder Jerry Lorenzo has created a church-inspired installation. Lorenzo and his team brought in a dozen vintage church pews, which face out onto an LED screen playing on a continuous loop about two hours worth of Nineties gospel singers in an effort to create re-create an environment akin to a Southern Baptist church, Lorenzo explained.
It’s about creating something with emotion first and product second, Lorenzo said of how the space was designed.
“I want you to come into the pop-up space and really understand and feel the emotion that drives what I do from a design perspective,” he said. “Fear of God is as much about rock ‘n’ roll as it is hip hop as it is sports as it is influenced by my faith in God. Last year we brought in a 1984 pick-up truck and really turned the space into this early Nineties rock ‘n’ roll basement. We

Patrick Grant Dedicates Pop-up Space to Designer Peers

GROUP EFFORT: British designer Patrick Grant is lending a hand to emerging London talents with a pop-up shop called Basement at his E. Tautz flagship on Duke Street.
He tapped Topman’s creative director Gordon Richardson to curate the offer, which includes selections of labels including Lou Dalton, Mathew Miller, Alex Mullins and Louise Gray, who has done clothing and artwork for the space.
Grant said he wanted to set aside a dedicated space for his fellow designer friends who don’t have bricks-and-mortar stores of their own and added that he’s happy to welcome other brands.
“All the designers in here, I know personally very well. As designers we’ve all grown up together. We’ve shown together, we’ve done showrooms together. We have all grown up through the BFC’s [British Fashion Council’s] pipeline of New Gen. We’ve taken the last train home from Paris — we have all got drunk together. We are all really good-pals, so it made sense that we might sell together. And its great to have the support of Gordon, who has been mentor and friend to all of us.”

Sprayground Recruits Biaggio Ali Walsh for Ads, Opens Pop-up Shop in Times Square

IN THE RING: Pre-holiday pop-up shops in New York are routine but one with ties to the late Muhammad Ali is unexpected.
As the Vacant New York site can attest to, there is no shortage of shuttered storefronts in Manhattan. Nationwide the situation is not much better with store vacancy rates in the U.S. expected to be 11.8 percent in the fourth quarter of this year and slightly higher next year, according to the web site Statista.
To help offset that, if only temporarily, the New York-born brand Sprayground has opened a weeklong shop at 140 West 42nd Street and as of Nov. 21, founder David Ben-David is showing off his fandom for the late Muhammad Ali. Through an alliance with Muhammad Ali Enterprises, his company has developed a commemorative collection that includes a $ 70 embroidered backpack, a $ 70 duffel bag and a $ 350 keepsake box with a few items including embroidered boxing gloves. The line will be sold in the pop-up and online with some of the proceeds benefitting the Muhammad Ali Foundation.

Todd Snyder Opens City Gym 2.0 Pop-up in Flatiron District

NEW YORK — The Todd Snyder brand has grown quite a bit since the first City Gym opened in collaboration with Champion Sportswear in NoLIta in 2013.
Not only has the label been sold to American Eagle Outfitters, but the designer has operated his own eponymous store in the Madison Park district for the last year. He has also kept busy working on collaborations with brands as varied as Timex and New Era.
But Snyder still found the time to whip up the second iteration of his original retail concept, a pop-up called City Gym 2.0 that opens today at 108 Fifth Ave. at 16th Street.
“The first one did so well, it was open for 1 and a half years,” he said during a walk-through of the store on Thursday. “We had an opportunity to take over this space, so we decided to open City Gym 2.0, a more modern take on what we did downtown.”
The original pop-up had more of a locker room aesthetic, but this has “more of a heritage vibe,” he said.
The store, located across from the Google pop-up, formerly housed North Sails. As a result, Snyder said the location didn’t require a lot of heavy lifting to convert

Sarah Jessica Parker to Open New York Pop-up Shop

Sarah Jessica Parker’s SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker brand will open a New York pop-up for the holiday season.
To be located at 640 Fifth Avenue with an entrance at 52nd Street, the 1,600-square-foot shop will sell an assortment of shoes — including styles reissued from the brand’s 2014 launch collection.
SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker’s line of little black dresses and handbags will also be on sale.
The shop is to be open on Black Friday, Nov. 24, and remain open through Dec. 3. Parker is expected to periodically drop into the store to greet shoppers.
“Having a home in New York for our SJP Collection has been only a seeming fantasy since we launched our brand almost four years ago.​ So it is with unbridled excitement that we share the news that we have indeed found that home, right off Fifth Avenue, in the heart of Midtown,” Parker said.
The actress, producer and designer’s business partner, George Malkemus, added: ”The very idea of the ultimate New York girl opening a pop-up and, on top of it, one opposite the famous 21 Club, has me pinching myself again and again.

Selfridges Opens K-Fashion Pop-up

NEW ARRIVALS: As Seoul Fashion Week drew to a close, 10 of its most promising designer names made their way to London to launch K-Fashion, a new pop-up at Selfridges aimed at spotlighting the best of South Korean design.
The designers created exclusive capsules for the pop-up, which is housed in the women’s designer galleries, on the store’s second floor.
Among the labels on show are Moohong and D-Antidote, which embrace a streetwear sensibility; Nohke, which stands out for its tailored outerwear, Munn, Push Button, Bourie, D.Gnak, Blindness and Resurrection.
Kuho Jung, Seoul Fashion Week’s executive director, said the group of designers, called “10 Soul,” was chosen by a committee that included international and local professionals.
Jung has been spearheading a number of initiatives in order to expose Seoul’s designers to an international audience and has hosted similar events in Milan and Paris.
He said he was drawn to London and to Selfridges, given their international appeal and the opportunity to have direct contact with customers through the pop-up space.
As Korean pop culture gains momentum internationally, Jung’s vision is to create as much interest in Korean design as there is in the country’s beauty industry and music. During the most recent Seoul Fashion Week, he drew

Rhone Creates Walden House Pop-up Experience

Rhone is taking its show on the road.
The men’s activewear brand, which received an investment from L Catterton earlier this year, has created Walden House, a mobile house that will embark on a multicity tour later this month where it will unveil product launches and partnerships.
“As we further explore our direct-to-consumer retail efforts, pop-up executions allow Rhone to gain deeper insight by immersing the brand in our key markets,” said Nate Checketts, Rhone cofounder and chief executive officer.
Walden House was created in partnership with New Frontier, a design firm that is a leader in the tiny house field. The 192-square-foot space features “garage doors” made of glass, organic shiplap walls, barn wood, walnut custom boxes and black plumbing pipe.
Walden House will make its debut at Domain in Austin, Tex., on Oct. 15 and will remain there through Jan. 15 before traveling to Las Vegas for the Project show Feb. 12-14. It will then move on to the Westfield Old Orchard in Skokie, Ill., from March 1-May 31. The Walden House will also travel throughout the summer in locations still to be determined.

Visvim has landed in TriBeCa.
The Japanese brand, which was founded by Hiroki Nakamura in 2001, has set up a temporary shop in TriBeCa at 180 Duane Street, which is home to the Williamson retail space that opened earlier this year.
The store mimics the brand’s early flagships that were titled F.I.L., which stands for Free International Laboratory. The space features white pedestals to display the luxury brand’s popular footwear, Jibari-Shiki lanterns from Kyoto and a fabric divider that hangs over the main entrance that’s covered in an American flag. The store also includes a lounge area where shoppers can try out footwear.
The outpost will carry the men’s and women’s collection and exclusive items from the F.I.L. Indigo Camping trailer.
Visvim has seven locations throughout Japan. Earlier this year Nakamura and his wife, Kelsi, opened a store in Santa Fe, N.M., dedicated to their women’s line.

Obey Takes Up Melrose Avenue Space for Pop-Up

PUNK INSPIRED: Streetwear-inspired clothing brand Obey has taken up residence on Melrose Avenue for a month-long pop-up.
The brand on Thursday evening is expected to celebrate its first foray into stand-alone brick-and-mortar in the city along with the launch of its Debbie Harry x Obey women’s collection, with artist Shepard Fairey on hand to DJ the private launch event.
The concept shop, at 7400 Melrose Avenue, totals 1,000 square feet and will have in stock pieces from the collaboration with Harry in addition to other items from the fall collection for men and women. A collection of zines will be available from various artists and publishers, including Never Press, Studio Number One and Animals Mag. Additional events are also planned for the space.
The company’s collaboration with Harry was first disclosed last year.
“I’ve been a Blondie fan my whole life and have collaborated with them in the past, which has been a dream come true. But working with Debbie on this project has been totally inspiring,” Fairey told WWD at the time of the collaboration’s announcement. “She’s been very involved and hands-on for the whole process, just another display of her incredible talent.”
The 25-piece collection includes a mix of pieces ranging from a

Five Four Opens Pop-up in Los Angeles

Five Four is dipping back into the brick-and-mortar game.
The online men’s wear retailer, which started out as a streetwear brand with multiple mall stores in California, has teamed with Alfred Coffee at 8428 Melrose Place in West Hollywood on a pop-up shop.
The temporary store celebrates the launch of Oshenta, Five Four’s new eyewear brand, and FiveFourMan.com, which will go live this fall. Five Four sells merchandise from each of its private labels on separate sites. FiveFourMan.com will bring all of these assortments together under one platform.
“We wanted to create a place where people could touch and feel and see the product,” said Andres Izquieta, who cofounded the business in 2002 with Dee Murthy. “It’s been a good experience to talk with the customers about product and show them our vision off-line.”
The 350-square-foot space, which will be open through September, carries fashion items from each of Five Four’s brands, which includes Five Four, its core line, New Republic, its footwear line designed by Mark McNairy, Grand AC, its activewear line, and now Oshenta, its eyewear collection. Izquieta said the pop-up is a traditional retail experience, but customers are able to see the full inventory from three in-store iPads from which they can order products.

Lucien Pagès Unveils Elements of Colette Pop-up

SUMMER FLING: Paris p.r. guru Lucien Pagès is gearing up for his summer-themed pop-up, Les Vacances de Lucien, in Colette’s first-floor space starting on Aug. 7. Among the exclusive items carried there will be two new lipsticks from the Rouge Dior line.
Peter Philips, Christian Dior’s creative and image director for makeup, also conceived the color cosmetics looks sported by 16 people appearing in a video installation that is to be shown in the windows of the Rue Saint-Honoré store.

Created by Studio L’Étiquette, the clip features 16 personalities, including Bella Hadid, Charlotte Chesnais, Vanessa Seward, Yazbukey and Yoon. In the video, each responds to questions posed by French journalist Sophie Fontanel.
Visitors to the concept store will — through Sept. 2 — be able to snap up especially created items from the brands represented by Pagès’ agency, many of which are one-offs, as well as a selection from their fall collections. Olympia Le-Tan, A.P.C., Loewe and RVDK/Ronald van der Kemp are among the 32 labels and designers participating.
As reported, the landmark Paris boutique is to host a series of pop-ups before closing its doors definitively on Dec. 20.

HBO to Open ‘Ballers’ Pop-up in Los Angeles

To mark the season three premiere of HBO’s “Ballers” series, the network is opening a Los Angeles pop-up at 633 North La Brea Avenue.
They’ve tapped men’s wear brands including Roc96 x MadeWorn, Pyer Moss, Buscemi, Cazal and Hall of Fame to produce co-branded capsule collections.
The show’s costume designer, Tiffany Hasbourne, said the pop-up would bring the “‘Ballers’ aesthetic to life.”
“This is going to be the most action-packed and stylish season of ‘Ballers’ yet, so there was no other way to launch than with a fully-immersive experience to capture that energy and offer our audience the opportunity to shop the ‘Ballers’-inspired collection,” she said.
Roc96, which was started by Rocafella cofounder Kareem “Biggs” Burke, teamed up with MadeWorn on a distressed, cotton jersey T-shirt that pays homage to Jay-Z’s “Can I Live” song from Reasonable Doubt, his debut album that was released in 1996. The shirt is embroidered with a 3 Ball. They will also offer a MadeWorn bomber jacket.
Kerby Jean-Raymond, who designed Pyer Moss, has made an oversized short-sleeve, ponte knit crew and a hooded sweatshirt.
And Jon Buscemi, who started his Los Angeles-based footwear and accessories brand in 2013, will offer a white slide, the 125MM high-top sneaker in black and

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.

Mizzen + Main to Open Six-Month Pop-up in SoHo

Men’s wear brand Mizzen + Main is opening a pop-up store on Thursday in SoHo.
The store, at 452 West Broadway, will be open for six months. While the pop-up is open, the company will offer customers a “trade program” where they can bring in a cotton dress shirt that they no longer want in exchange for $ 50 off a Mizzen + Main shirt.
The men’s brand has had four pop-ups before, but those were open for either a few days or a few weeks. The last one in Manhattan — two pop-ups were in Manhattan in 2015 and two in San Francisco in 2016 — was at the Refinery Hotel in November 2015.
According to Kevin Lavelle, chief executive officer and founder of the Dallas-based brand, “This will make us better. To be able to interact with our customers will help us understand what is needed to run retail ourselves, and for our retail partners.”
Lavelle said he doesn’t have any grand plans to open a fleet of Mizzen + Main stores. “I don’t ever really see us owning a massive retail presence. We have a great distribution network,” he said.

Ministry of Tomorrow Launches Vegan Lifestyle Magazine, Plans Pop-up Shops and Los Angeles Store

GREENER FIELDS: Keeping true to its eco-minded approach to fashion, Ministry of Tomorrow has launched a vegan lifestyle magazine called MOT Mag.
Looking to empower staffers and enlighten consumers has been the Los Angeles company’s goal from its inception, according to president and founder Julian Prolman. The content-rich read features articles such as a Vivienne Westwood profile, Pharrell Williams’ inspiration for sustainable fashion, and a piece about the digital deterioration of natural feminine beauty. MOT has created a base of 20 freelance writers and there are plans to add guest contributors who are thought leaders and social commentators, Prolman said. “We decided on publishing the magazine now in order to grow our brand in a more engaging way that builds a community and creates meaningful relationships with our target audience, as opposed to relating to them only on a transactional basis.”
Topics are chosen in different categories, based on how well they align with MOT’s brand values — sustainability, compassion and higher consciousness. Started in 2011, the company’s flagship project is in Nairobi, Kenya just outside of one of Africa’s largest slums, Kibera, where a facility has been built to sponsor professional artisan tailors.

They Are Wearing: PopUp Dinner Brooklyn

Presented by Handmade Events, PopUp Dinner Brooklyn brought one-of-a-kind creativity out for a picnic along the water at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook. The flash picnic brought together 6,000 people dressed in white from head to toe to eat, drink and dance to the rhythm of New York DJs and a special performance by Run-DMC’s Darryl McDaniels. The premise: Handmade Events provides the setting, tables, chairs and entertainment, and guests provide the rest. From the Pinterest-worthy table settings and beautifully decorated cakes to the eccentric white cocktail hats and creative interpretations of monochromatic dressing, the crowd was alive and the sense of community couldn’t be missed. The pop-up was a spontaneous and beautifully unexpected evening of style.

Original Penguin Opens Aspen Pop-up

Original Penguin has set up shop in Aspen, Colo.
The men’s wear brand has opened an 800-square-foot store located at 555 East Durant Avenue, which is next to the Aspen Mountain Club.
“It’s a strategic location that appeals to our core customer,” said Oscar Feldenkreis, chief executive officer and president of Perry Ellis International, which owns Original Penguin. “Aspen is very popular during the summer for its outdoor activities and festivals, which are some of our brand’s key pillars.

Feldenkreis said they will hold these events in partnership with local businesses in Aspen.
According to Feldenkreis, the decision to remain permanent will depend on how well the store performs over the next few months.
Original Penguin is reassessing its retail footprint. They are in the process of relocating their Miami International Airport store to a larger location and will renovate their New York flagship on Sixth Avenue near Bryant

U.S. Embassy Hosts Pop-up Shop for Haitian-American Entrepreneurs

TRUE COLORS: Embassies are all about helping the homeland, but the U.S. Embassy of Haiti went above and beyond presenting the Bien Abyé “Les Jardins de la Mode” pop-up shop.
More than 400 people turned up for the event, the finale to D.C.’s first “Haiti Week,” hosted by Ambassador Paul Altidor, and it featured an assortment of products from Haitian-American entrepreneurs. All of the apparel, accessories, home goods and gourmet products that were featured are sourced or inspired by Haiti. Bien Abyé’s founder and designer Dayanne Danier orchestrated the event, which included “Artisan du Monde” by Nathalie Tancrede, “Deux Noirs” by Eddy Albertini, “Vetiver Les Cayes” by Reginald Boisrond Canal and “Zesa Raw” by Michelle Jean. Art fans, diplomats and tastemakers checked out the collection and shopped in the embassy’s newly renovated courtyard. They also listened in when former White House liaison Karen Andre quizzed participants about their careers.
“The recent event was the first in a series and “is in line with the mission of the Embassy to be a platform for Haitian-owned businesses to showcase their products,” Altidor said.
Bien Abyé is currently offered in five U.S. boutiques and via e-commerce. “Doing pop-up allows me to give a unique experience to

Tie Bar Opens Madison Avenue Pop-up

NEW YORK — The Tie Bar has entered the men’s wear fray on Madison Avenue — at least for the next six months.
The Chicago-based men’s furnishings brand has taken a temporary space at 400 Madison Avenue between 47th and 48th Streets for a pop-up shop to showcase its new dress shirt collection in addition to its assortment of neckwear, socks, pocket squares, tie bars and other accessories.
Allyson Lewis, chief executive officer, was in town to put the finishing touches on the shop, which will have its official opening on Thursday.
“This is a very different location for us,” she said. “It’s more of a work destination, but we are a workwear brand at heart.”
This marks the third pop-up the Tie Bar has had in New York. Its other two were in SoHo and Greenwich Village. It has also had pop-ups in Boston and Washington, D.C.
The brand launched dress shirts last October and released its second collection in early April. “In October, we focused on core wardrobe staples but now we have more seasonal fashion — light spring colors and fabrics,” she said. “And they’re performing very well.”

Dress shirts are a new addition for Tie Bar.

Daniel W. Fletcher Launches Pop-up Store at Liberty London

IN WITH THE NEW: Up-and-coming men’s wear designer Daniel W. Fletcher has secured Liberty London as his first stockist in the U.K.
The young designer has partnered with Liberty on a three-week pop-up store, which aims to introduce Fletcher’s aesthetic to the Liberty customer and give the brand more visibility. The retailer will then go on to stock Fletcher’s fall range as part of its men’s wear department.
“I have been talking to Liberty for a while now but we waited until we could launch something properly. I didn’t want it to get lost on a rail at the back of a store. This is my first stockist in London, which is the home of the brand, so I wanted to mark that moment properly,” said the designer, adding that he was drawn to the retailer’s distinctly British identity, which is in line with the references to English heritage often used in his collections.
The young designer, known for his politically minded collections — his first show was staged as a flash protest against Brexit — has so far been sold at Opening Ceremony in the U.S. and on the brand’s own e-commerce platform. He said that he hopes the partnership with Liberty will expose

French Label Études Studio Sets Pop-up at Harvey Nichols

ARTY COMBINATION: Known for its collaborative approach to fashion, French men’s wear label Études Studio has taken over Harvey Nichols’ lower ground pop-up space Project 109.
The shop, which opened on Wednesday and is slated to run for five weeks, stocks the brand’s spring collection as well as an exclusive capsule consisting of a T-shirt and a tote bag, adapted from the collective’s latest “Dérives In,” or “Drifting In,” series, harkening back at the French notion of the “flâneur.”
Both items retail at 80 pounds, or $ 99.50 at current exchange.
Boasting the label’s penchant for art and photography, the pop-up also showcases images from video artist Colin Snapp, who shot the collective’s latest ad campaign.
A multifaceted platform that produces apparel, edits limited-edition art books and provides creative services, Études is a studio established by artist Aurélien Arbet and graphic designer Jérémie Egry in 2012.
It is backed financially by a swath of independent creatives, including DJ, producer and former Daft Punk manager Pedro Winter; Pierre-François Le Louët, president of the French Federation of Women’s Ready-to-Wear; and most recently singer Woodkid, who all swear by the label’s minimalist streetwear with an arty touch.

Dior today concludes its global roadshow of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s spring 2017 collection, with an installation at the Jean Prouvé “Nomade” house at Maxfield in Los Angeles, which will premiere for invited guests at an event Wednesday night and be on display to the public through April 14.
The initiative kicked off at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York, continuing on to The Webster in Miami, and Antonia in Milan.
Dior has pulled out all the stops to promote its first spring collection under Chiuri and the pop-ups were chosen because they represent different markets and clientele.

MIAMI — Saks Fifth Avenue christened its wholesale partnership with North Sails Collection with a pop-up at its new Brickell City Centre store in Miami. The shop, which will be housed on the store’s third level during the month of March, will then travel to the retailer’s Union Square store in San Francisco in May, followed by Manhattan’s Brookfield Place in July.
North Sails’ foray into U.S. wholesale — it operates freestanding stores in New York; Annapolis, Md.; and Newport, R.I. — coincides with the 52 Super Series Miami Royal Cup regatta, which runs through March 11, when top local clients are invited to be in the center of the action on a spectator boat.
“Guys are interested in pop-ups and an elevated shopping experience, and we’re putting a lot of effort into them,” said Tom Ott, senior vice president and general merchandise manager for men’s wear at Saks Fifth Avenue, of the afternoon outing on Biscayne Bay, which he believes will appeal to Miamians’ outdoor lifestyle, sailor or not. “Once you do these experiential events, customers become loyal and excited about the brick-and-mortar experience.”

Inès de La Fressange Hits LaDoubleJ Pop-Up at Le Bon Marché

PRINTS CHARMING: Inès de la Fressange was among the first customers hitting J.J. Martin’s pop-up shop at Le Bon Marché for her clothing label LaDoubleJ. Founded in 2015 by the Californian, Milan-based writer and vintage fanatic, the collection is based on dresses and shirts in vintage prints lifted from the archives of Italian textile producers.
“We started with this first dress, really easy, really simple, in eight patterns, and now we have seven or eight models. The idea is never collections, just pieces. We launch a new piece every two months, two new prints, and it just kinds of adds on, and we don’t get rid of anything. This worked 12 months ago; we still love it,” said Martin, showing people around the stand, located on the store’s first floor and open through March 31. The plan is to add plates and napkins with Bitossi, a brand that’s been around since the Fifties, specializing in ceramics, and Mascioni. “The goal is to work with cool Italian companies that are under the radar.”
“It makes me happy,” said designer Lars Nilsson, taking in the vibrant installation wallpapered in the same prints as the designs. Vincent Darré was also on hand, having supplied the space’s vintage

Louis Vuitton Opens First Men’s Pop-up Store in Milan

MILAN — Louis Vuitton’s first men’s pop-up store in Italy, which was inaugurated here on Friday and will officially open Saturday, coincides with the city’s men’s fashion week and will close on Jan. 29. Located in the arty Brera district, the store carries the men’s spring collection exclusively in Italy, including shoes, bags, travel cases, accessories, small leather goods and watches.
The store has a distinctive artistic feel. The decor pays homage to Africa and the art of the Chapman brothers, who inspired Kim Jones, the brand’s men’s artistic director, on the spring collection. The renderings of the Big Five animals by brothers Dinos and Jake Chapman stand out on the walls, contrasting with the storied feel of the venue, with its antique fireplace and coffered ceilings.
“Brera is an interesting area and full of life, in which history, art and fashion blend and become protagonists,” said Jones, pointing to the relevance of the project in Milan as “the capital of men’s wear.”
Jones worked with the Chapmans to create four animal prints on the Louis Vuitton Monogram pattern, seen on ready-to-wear, accessories and leather goods, including two rigid beauty cases, available upon request.

SPIRITUAL JOURNEY: The London-based jewelry designer Noor Fares launched the latest installment of her “Akasha” collection, in Mayfair’s Lamb Art gallery, which will also house the brand’s first pop-up shop.
“Akasha,” which means ether in ancient Hindu and symbolizes the intangible, takes the form of a spiritual journey. Fares explored the various healing powers of stones and incorporated different geometric patterns into the jewelry derived from Hindu symbolism.
“Spirituality has always been a personal interest, I do a lot of research, and I’m interested in stones’ different attributes within different cultures. Jewelry is something so personal that narrative becomes a key element in the collection, people almost expect it to have a deeper meaning,” said the Lebanese-born jeweler.
Multicolored stones are arranged into circular-shaped rings and pendants from the collection, which represent mandalas or sacred circles. The designer highlighted that she chose nine stones from the Indian science of healing gems, which are meant to draw the essence of the 9 planets when combined together.
Other pieces incorporate triangular-shaped white topaz stones arranged to face in opposite directions in order to represent the masculine and feminine energies. Fares pointed to a delicate gold choker featuring the triangular topaz stones as one of the most

VFiles Hosts Justin Bieber ‘Purpose Tour’ Pop-up

BIEBER BOUTIQUE: VFiles has cleared its SoHo store in Manhattan to make way for Justin Bieber’s “Purpose World Tour” merchandise.
The Millennial-minded social media platform and retailer is hosting a two-day pop-up that opens today and is dedicated to Bieber’s concert merchandise, which includes a denim jacket, T-shirts, hoodies, hats and sweatpants that retail from $ 30 to $ 360. The pop-up will also include two limited-edition hoodies that are exclusive to VFiles and a T-shirt designed specifically for his Brooklyn concert, which will be held tonight and tomorrow night at the Barclays Center. Customers, who were let in 20 at a time, are only allowed to buy one of each item.
The line for the pop-up, which snaked down Mercer Street, was filled with mostly young people wearing other merchandise from their favorite pop stars — Beyoncé’s Ivy Park logo and Kanye West’s “The Life of Pablo” graphics were scattered through the crowd.
Shoppers in line were either Beliebers or they worshiped at the altar of Jerry Lorenzo, the Fear of God designer who helped with the merchandise and designed custom pieces for the tour. Lorenzo was set to make an appearance at the pop-up, but in a very Bieber-like move, he refused press

British Designer Claire Barrows Hosts Pop-up, Revamps Website

SECRET STORE: To coincide with the launch of her revamped Web site, Claire Barrow will host a “secret” pop-up store, offering limited-edition designs beginning Aug. 7. Shoppers can sign up on clairebarrow.com to receive a code to gain access to shop at the pop-up.
The online shopping area will offer 24 pieces including silk scarves, ruffle tops, tote bags, shirts, sew-on patches and leather coats and jackets. Designed exclusively for the store, the pieces have been hand-painted by Barrow. In addition, she’s selling a series of leather iPhone cases designed together with The Case Factory. The price range is 20 pounds, or $ 31, for a painted patch to 1,500 pounds, or $ 2,340, for a lambskin leather swing coat.
“It’s a pre-collection, but very limited edition, each thing having been hand-painted, dyed, etc. by myself,” Barrow told WWD. “Like all my collections, it has a story behind it. The idea of hand-painting things to sell online inspired the collection because it got me thinking about art you can wear and e-commerce; it’s a bit like being in the [museum] gift shop rather than the gallery. From this idea I constructed a curated ‘gift shop’ range of products for a make-believe museum of ancient erotic
