Wise SGR Sells Boglioli

MILAN — Storied Italian men’s wear company Boglioli is changing hands.
Private equity fund Wise SGR, which held a 98 percent stake in Boglioli, has accepted an offer made by international fund PHI Industrial Acquisitions to buy the clothing firm. Financial details of the transaction were not revealed.
According to its web site, the Madrid and Barcelona-based PHI Industrial eyes majority stakes in companies with revenues of between 20 million and 250 million euros, or $ 22.2 million and $ 277.8 million at current exchange rates, located in the European area and engaged in “any activity sector other than the financial and real estate sectors.” The fund operates with a long-term commitment, it states.
The arrival of a new owner and fresh capital will allow Boglioli to present a plan for a voluntary arrangement with creditors, “with a view to starting out anew with a solid growth plan, also looking to grow on international markets,” the company said Thursday.
The first such step will be Boglioli’s return to Pitti Uomo with the spring 2018 collection designed by the in-house team. Creative director Davide Marello left the brand after the presentation in Milan of the fall collection. Marello was tapped in 2015 and he was the first to

Neiman Marcus Sells ‘Destroyed’ Designer Sneakers For $1,425

We’ve all seen “distressed” jeans before, but this “destroyed” sneaker takes shabby chic to a whole new level. 

Neiman Marcus is selling $ 1,425 “Future Destroyed High-Top Sneakers” from luxury designer Maison Margiela on its website, and it the shoes completely live up to their name. The men’s sneakers are so mangled and dirty, they look like they previously moonlighted as a chew toy for dogs. 

Considering Maison Margiela outfitted Katy Perry in this design for the Met Gala, the shoes are right in line with the house’s avant garde-inspired style: 

The description for the shoe is hilarious, calling it “highly distressed.” But look at all of its features! 

  • Leather and textile upper
  • Round toe
  • Lace-up front with side lace guards
  • Logo patch at tongue
  • Padded collar
  • Cushioned heel counter
  • Rubber outsole

Who needs fresh kicks when these distressed ones have a cool patch and a cushioned heel? Hurry if you’d like to buy a pair, as it appears there are only two sizes left. 

If those shoes aren’t quite your style, Maison Margiela is also offering another interesting pair of shoes, called the Pollock Paint-Splatter sneaker. Though they sort of look like a pigeon Jackson Pollock-ed on them, they’re “only” $ 595. 

If you’re interested in purchasing any of the shoes, we suggest wearing them with these $ 425 Nordstrom jeans that are covered in fake mud OR these delightful mom jeans with clear plastic kneecaps

Prism Launches Worldwide Pop-ups Featuring Chloe Sells Art

HOT STUFF: London brand Prism, which has rapidly moved from eyewear into clothing and accessories, plans to beach hop this summer with a series of pop-up shops in resorts ranging from Bali to Mykonos to Venice Beach. The five pop-ups will stock the brand’s swimwear, beachwear, footwear, sunglasses and accessories, and showcase original photographic art by Chloe Sells.
“We really wanted to activate retail spaces in beach destinations that we don’t work with all year-round,” said Anna Laub, the founder and creative director of Prism, who opened her first store last year in London’s Marylebone neighborhood. “We’re taking over the stores’ windows and have tailored our space to suit each shop. We’ve also done an exclusive swimsuit for each store.”
Laub is collaborating with her friend, the artist Chloe Sells, on the windows at each location. They will be covered with handmade vinyl prints showing a variety of tropical images from Sells’ catalogue. As they’re made from vinyl, the prints can stick to the shop windows and let the light shine through for a “prismatic effect,” Laub said.
The pop-ups will start opening Wednesday, and trade for the duration of the summer. Prices range from 150 pounds, or $ 234, for a pair of espadrilles to

Artist Richard Prince Sells Instagram Photos That Aren’t His For $90K

Did you know someone could resell your Instagram pictures for $ 90,000?

Richard Prince, an established artist who plays with authorship and appropriation, made waves at the Frieze Art Fair a couple of weeks ago with his Instagram paintings.

Prince took screenshots of gorgeous Instagram pictures uploaded by models, celebrities and artists, and added creepy comments underneath, like, “Enjoyed the ride today. Let’s do it again. Richard.” Then he printed the images on canvas. Last fall, he exhibited them at the Gagosian Gallery, where they sold for $ 90,000 each.

He took photos of Sky Ferreira, Pamela Anderson and porn stars, as well as Doe Deere, the CEO of Lime Crime. Last week, she Instagrammed a picture from the Frieze exhibition.

You’d think the original Instagrammers could sue Prince for copyright infringement. But because Prince edited the photos to include his own comments, the works count as original pieces of art.

Not everybody agrees Prince’s appropriation is artistically valid. Los Angeles-based artist Audrey Wollen, whose reinterpretation of Diego Velázquez’s “The Rokeby Venus” was reprinted, told i-D last fall that she was “really angry” he’d taken her work.

“What Prince is doing is colonising and profiting off a territory of the internet that was created by a community of young girls,” she told the outlet.

A critic at ArtNet laid into Prince after the Gagosian show too, writing that it had “thin offerings for anyone who is in possession of a brain.”

Some artists, though, appreciate the exposure. Stacy Leigh, whose photo series of sex dolls was featured on The Huffington Post last week, commented on Instagram that Prince “knows a good thing when he see’s it” [sic].

Prince had reposted one of her images on his Instagram, which has since been taken down. When another user asked if he printed her image for the exhibition, Leigh replied, “I wish he would!!! I would be honored.”

Missy Suicide, the founder of pinup girl website Suicide Girls, had a photo taken of the site’s main Instagram account, as well as those of her models.

“I’m not holding a grudge,” she told The Huffington Post. In fact, she noted that it seemed natural Prince was drawn to the Suicide Girls, which has 3 million Instagram followers. “Our girls’ portraits are the most compelling on Instagram, so of course he found ours,” she said.

Nor is she critical of his work. “He’s starting a conversation about what we put out there in the public, and it’s definitely an interesting conversation to start having,” she said. Missy’s just surprised people paid $ 90,000 for the images.

To bring his work down to a more affordable price point, Suicide Girls is turning the reproduction tables back on Prince by reproducing and selling their own reproductions of his reproductions. The profits will be donated to charity.

“We’re just happy to make his art accessible to the kinds of people that he’s featuring,” she said. Ironically, the Gagosian press release warns that “All images are subject to copyright.”

The Gagosian Gallery and Richard Prince did not respond to requests for comment.

Picasso Painting Sells For $179 Million, Breaking Art Auction Record

NEW YORK (AP) — A vibrant, multi-hued painting from Pablo Picasso set a world record for artwork at auction, selling for nearly $ 179.4 million on Monday night.

“Women of Algiers (Version O)” was part of a sale at Christie’s auction house that also featured Alberto Giacometti’s life-size sculpture “Pointing Man,” which was poised to set a record as the most expensive sculpture sold at auction. They were among two dozen masterpieces from the 20th century Christie’s offered in a curated sale titled “Looking Forward to the Past.”

The Picasso price, $ 179,365,000, included the auction house’s premium. The identity of the buyer wasn’t immediately disclosed.

Experts say high art prices are driven by artworks’ investment value and by wealthy new and established collectors seeking out the very best works.

“I don’t really see an end to it, unless interest rates drop sharply, which I don’t see happening in the near future,” Manhattan dealer Richard Feigen said.

Impressionist and modern artworks continue to corner the market because “they are beautiful, accessible and a proven value,” added Sarah Lichtman, professor of design history and curatorial studies at The New School.

“I think we will continue to see the financiers seeking these works out as they would a blue chip company that pays reliable dividends for years to come,” she said.

“Women of Algiers,” once owned by the American collectors Victor and Sally Ganz, was inspired by Picasso’s fascination with the 19th-century French artist Eugene Delacroix. It is part of a 15-work series Picasso created in 1954-55 designated with the letters A through O. It has appeared in several major museum retrospectives of the artist.

The most expensive artwork sold at auction had been Francis Bacon’s “Three Studies of Lucian Freud,” which Christie’s sold for $ 142.4 million in 2013.

“Pointing Man,” depicting a skinny 5-foot-high bronze figure with extended arms, has been in the same private collection for 45 years. Giacometti, who died in 1966, made six casts of the work; four are in museums, and the others are in private hands and a foundation collection.

His “Walking Man I” holds the auction record for a sculpture. It sold for $ 104.3 million in 2010.

Among other highlights at Christie’s was Peter Doig’s “Swamped,” a 1990 painting of a canoe in a moonlit lagoon, which could set a record for the British artist. It was estimated to fetch around $ 20 million. The current record is $ 18 million.

Monet’s “The Houses of Parliament, At Sunset,” a lush painting of rich blues and magenta created in 1900-01, was estimated to bring $ 35 million to $ 45 million. The Monet auction record is his 1919 “Water Lily Pond,” which sold for $ 80.5 million in 2008.

Christie’s also had a Mark Rothko for sale. “No. 36 (Black Stripe),” which had never appeared at auction, was estimated to sell for $ 30 million to $ 50 million. The 1958 work was being sold by the German collector Frieder Burda, who exhibited it in his museum in Baden-Baden for several years.

Last year, Christie’s said its global sales of impressionist and modern art were $ 1.2 billion, an increase of 19 percent over the previous year.

#ShareaCondom Campaign Proves (Safe) Sex Sells

2014-10-23-Tinder_datecopy.jpg

Advertisers may have found the secret to millennial marketing: ego boosting, social media, and sex. Coke’s #ShareaCoke campaign and condom manufacturer Poke’s #ShareaCondom campaign have both led to tremendous spikes in product sales and popularity, especially among young consumers.

New research determined millennials top three “wants” in life, which advertisers used to develop an effective marketing method:

Want: Identity as an important, one-of-a-kind individual.
Method: Boost ego with personalization by name or high-status label.

Want: Maximum attention on social media.
Method: Instagram a Like-worthy pic with witty caption.

Want: Sex.
Method: Get sex.

2014-10-23-condombae.jpg

Coke used this data first in their summer 2014 campaign #ShareaCoke, creating new bottles for sharing with labels specifying a name or a sentimental group, like a “Star” and “Family”. Drinkers were encouraged to share the soft drink in real life and on social media. The bottles and cans were Instagrammed at an unprecedented rate.

“I was at Target with my BFF Bev and I saw a Diet Coke with a ‘BFF’ label,” said 20-year-old University of Florida communications student Christie Boone. “Obvi I bought it, and duh I Instagrammed a pic of us with it. Triple-digit Likes and zero cals; hashtag winning.”

According to Boone, #ShareaCoke also created sexual tension across college campuses as the bottles were “an icebreaker for hot randos to meet, chat, and, you know.”

2014-10-23-condomapplegenstuart.jpg

Educators, parents, and condom manufacturers have worked to make safe sex appealing to young people for decades with minimal success – until now. Shadowing Coke’s marketing tactic, Poke’s “#ShareaCondom” campaign is enjoying similar success while also preventing unplanned pregnancy and STDs.

“We were inspired to apply the passions and talents of millennials – ego, sex, and social media – and it worked,” said human sexuality researcher Jaime Henderson, Ph.D. “Condom use is at a record high!”

“I’m thrilled about this #ShareaCondom campaign,” said high school sexual education teacher Hailee Koals. “For years we’ve been trying to make safe sex cool. Who knew all we had to do was add a hashtag?”

#ShareaCondom encourages users to share a condom with a broader range of individuals, including a “Cycling Instructor”, “Apple Genius”, and “One Night Stand”.*

“Who you decide to do is your business,” said Poke’s Chief Marketing Officer Mitchell Klump. “We just want the labels to resonate with this generation’s sexual realities.”

Sex, social media, and ego drive many of our actions, whether it’s posting a picture simply for Likes (and attention) or fulfilling a natural desire for love (and possibly attention). These are prominent cultural forces that are here to stay.

“Last night I was at Target, again, and I saw a box of Poke’s with a ‘BF’ label,” Boone said. “Obvi I bought it, and duh I’m going to use them. My boyfriend and I are Facebook official. Hashtag blessed. Hashtag share a condom!”

But while trends that spread virally on social media, such as “My New Haircut” and “Harlem Shake”, ultimately always disappear, sexually transmitted diseases that spread virally are forever. Get in the mix, #ShareaCondom.

Join the conversation using the following hashtags:

Pee-wee Herman’s Bike From ‘Pee-wee’s Big Adventure’ Sells For $36,600 On eBay

Pee-wee’s bike fetched some big bucks on eBay Thursday.

The shiny red and white bicycle used by Pee-wee Herman in “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” sold for $ 36,600, or more than three times the $ 10,000 reward offered for the return of the bike in the 1985 film.

(It should be noted that Pee-wee had no intention of paying the reward since “whoever returns the bike is obviously the person who stole it — so they don’t deserve any reward.”)

That’s also more than three times the $ 10,000 the seller paid for it back in 2010.

On the other hand, Pee-wee set a much higher price for the bike in the film:

The seller says in the listing that he needs to ditch the bike “because my family is getting larger.”

The only downside is that the bike doesn’t exactly look like it did in the film at the moment. It’s in pieces.

So basically, some assembly required.
