Why Diet Starts Monday Closed Its D.C. Store

According to Davin Gentry, who cofounded streetwear line Diet Starts Monday with John Geiger, although their retail and restaurant concept became a fixture for creatives in Washington, D.C., after it launched in May of 2017, there were never plans to keep that space open for more than three months. But because of its success, and a landlord who wanted to bide time so he could find another tenant, it remained open through the end of 2018.
“We could have kept the space going, but for it to really work it required us to be there all the time,” said Gentry. “But for us to grow the brand the way we want to grow the brand, we knew we had to shut it down. It was tough for us to walk away from the space, but in order to plant seeds everywhere, we had to uproot.”
For the team behind Diet Starts Monday, which doesn’t wholesale, the road to expansion means global pop-up activations that will either be stand-alone spaces or stores within larger stores. And they are kicking things off with a pop-up at Patron of the New on Feb. 11 that will feature flannels, trucker jackets, hoodies and ski masks covered

‘This Is Us’ Cast Surprises Fans, Starts Crying Like The Rest Of Us

Much has been written about the semi-torturous experience of watching “This Is Us,” NBC’s hit show that leaves viewers in a puddle of their own tears after every episode.

After emotionally destroying us for 18 episodes, it’s about time the cast got a taste of their own medicine. As part of the network’s upfront presentation on Monday, NBC gathered some of the show’s biggest fans to share their own stories about family, parenting, adoption and grief.

What they didn’t know was that stars like Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown and Chrissy Metz were listening off-screen. As fans recounted heartwarming (and heartbreaking) stories about how the show hit home for them, the actors quietly broke down in tears.

The feels kept on coming when the stars surprised the fans, leading to meetings so emotional, series creator Dan Fogelman must have crafted them himself.

Talbots Starts Summer Book Club, Partners With Random House

THROW THE BOOK AT THEM: Talbots has rolled out a give-a-book-get-a-book program to give shoppers yet another reason to visit its stores.
Through the Talbots Summer Book Club, the retailer has set up a book exchange where customers are encouraged to drop off a favorite read that has impacted their lives, and in turn they can pick up another book that someone else recommends. Understated bookplates (that reference Talbots) are being provided to customers to write a note about why that book is meaningful to them before it is passed along to the next reader. (May also happens to be the American Association of Publishers’ “Get Caught Reading” month.)
Talbots’ end game is to create a makeshift lending library, which will lead to repeat visits by shoppers all summer long. The plan is to have thousands of books in circulation in time for the summer book reading season. At the end of the summer, any books remaining in stores will be donated to local organizations, allowing these novels to impact communities on a larger scale.
As of Memorial Day weekend, Talbots will be expanding the Book Club through a partnership with Random House that will tout some of the publisher’s leading writers. Each

Printemps Starts Radical Makeover With New Men’s Store

PARIS — Printemps on Monday unveiled a radical makeover of its flagship here with the opening of a five-floor men’s department at its historic building at 64 Boulevard Haussmann.
The redesigned Printemps de l’Homme store marks the first phase in the renovation of around half the store’s surface, or 237,000 square feet, over the space of six months, with the planned transfer of the homewares and beauty departments in May and July, respectively.
In addition, the retailer plans to enter the food category with the opening in 2018 of a three-floor department atop the new men’s store, in addition to a rooftop terrace affording 360-degree views of Paris, Printemps chief executive officer Paolo de Cesare said in an exclusive interview.
Printemps spent around 300 million euros, or $ 410 million at average exchange, on store upgrades between 2008 and 2013 and expects to invest a similar amount in the five years through 2019.
That includes 60 million euros, or $ 64 million, for the men’s store, which has gained 40 percent more space in the move.
It’s part of a plan set in motion following the acquisition of the store in 2013 by Divine Investments SA, a Luxembourg-based investment fund backed by Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani,

Rag & Bone Cofounder Starts Double Eleven Line

Since leaving Rag & Bone in 2006, Nathan Bogle’s journey has taken him to many different places.
After a short hiatus, he dabbled in culinary school, film school and consulting before finding his way back to the apparel business in 2012 with his line Jardine, a contemporary men’s wear collection named after his great-grandfather that shuttered in 2014. This collection, which was nothing like Rag & Bone, consisted of suit separates, dress shirts and polo shirts made of synthetic fabrics.
Now he’s taking another stab at fashion with Double Eleven, a sustainable men’s brand that embodies the Americana ethos he embraced at Rag & Bone.
“I was sitting on a factory floor on 38th Street where we made our leathers for Jardine and I was watching the guy cut the hide and basically utilize only 70 percent of it,” said Bogle. “And I just went through the calculation of the cow, feeding it and the food and water and it hit me like a ton of bricks and I thought, I’ve got to solve this.”
Bogle’s solution is layered. He’s producing Made in Los Angeles men’s wear basics — denim, T-shirts, sweaters and jackets — that are constructed with deadstock fabrics. Knits are made

‘Agent Carter,’ Marvel’s Secret Agent Show, Starts 2015 Off Right

That sound you heard as 2015 arrived was a long exhale of relief.

It feels good to give the one of the first new shows of the year, “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” a positive review. Not only is it preferable to start the TV year on an optimistic note, there were plenty of reasons to be particularly worried about this property, thus I’m especially happy it didn’t go awry.

The rocky first season of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” provided a cautionary tale that lasted the better part of a season and made it clear that bringing Marvel universe characters to the small screen is no easy task. Though “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” has gotten a lot better (huzzah!), many of those improvements came too late for a sizable chunk of the show’s viewers, who didn’t return for the stronger and more focused second season.

Despite that welcome uptick in quality, it wasn’t unreasonable to worry about whether Marvel TV shows were capable of coming out of the gate strong. DC TV properties like “Arrow” and “The Flash” felt far more assured than “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” did in its early going; the two CW shows figured out what they wanted to accomplish very quickly, and that confidence has continued to help both ride out any week-to-week turbulence. That said, “Gotham” proves that DC shows (and superhero programs in general) can still have a lot of trouble with tone and execution. The Fox drama remains uncertain of what it wants to be and who it wants to be about, and right now, it doesn’t consistently do anything except serve as unexceptional “brand management,” as EW’s Jeff Jensen wrote.

She’s not exactly Batman, but these days, Peggy Carter’s pop-culture profile is at least comparable to that of the Green Arrow, James Gordon or The Flash. The espionage agent is obviously a longtime part of the Marvel comic-book universe, but her inclusion in both “Captain America” movies made her much more famous, and when “Agent Carter” was announced, I was torn: Sure, it might be a cool show, but what if it was a high-profile train wreck? Not Peggy!

My fondness for the character runs deep: I think “Captain America: The First Avenger” is the best movie to have emerged from the post-“Iron Man” Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Carter, who is so warmly and ably portrayed by Hayley Atwell, provides some of the reasons that rock-solid, emotionally sensitive and exciting origin story works so well. A failure to do right by Carter would have been a particularly painful. To stumble when inventing mostly new characters, as “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” did, is regrettable but understandable. To mess up a well-known character who is already beloved, who fits into a known universe and who possesses so much potential — well, a TV train wreck just didn’t bear contemplating, especially given that Carter is one of the few complex, compelling women in the overwhelmingly male MCU.

Happily, my apprehensions quickly faded away as I watched the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Agent Carter” on New Year’s Day. The drama is every bit as brisk and engaging as its lead character, and I can only list one real objection to the show: its brevity. The first season of “Agent Carter” will consist of only eight episodes, so when Carter’s adventures end in a couple of months, I’m betting many of us will feel as though it ended too soon.

Even so, telling one story in a limited amount of time seems like a very Peggy Carter thing to do. Crisp, entertaining efficiency is kind of her thing.

The downside of the short run is that it might not allow “Agent Carter” to explore the show’s supporting characters in detail, which is a bit of a shame. The cast around Atwell is excellent, particularly Enver Gjokaj of “Dollhouse” as a fellow agent in the post-war Strategic Scientific Reserve (a cover for a covert spy agency). Dominic Cooper swoops in from the MCU to have fun playing the rakish Howard Stark again, but I found that James D’Arcy, who plays Stark’s butler, Jarvis, quietly stole the show out from under his flashy boss.

It’s nice to see the cast rounded out with solid players, but the soul of the show is Peggy Carter, and “Agent Carter” quickly and intelligently begins to add depth and texture to the character, who hides a well of sadness under her chipper British exterior. When the series begins, Carter is restless and frustrated within the confines of the sexist boys’ club that is the post-war SSR (a situation that was glimpsed in the Marvel One Shot also titled “Agent Carter”). Her boss and co-workers are often callous and condescending to her, yet “Agent Carter” is never dour or bitter. The show clearly wants to be an energetic slice of period escapism, and it supplies spy-game derring-do with energetic efficiency. Atwell carries the show with forthrightness and aplomb, and there are grace notes that quietly remind the audience that Peggy is still mourning Captain America (who, in this time frame, is a “Cap-sicle” at the bottom of the ocean).

The secret-agent tales in these episodes aren’t particularly new or original; the plots usually revolve around the usual MacGuffins and glowing orbs and chases and fights in warehouses. However executive producers and showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas do a good job of parceling out the show’s overall story into smaller, episodic servings, and “Agent Carter” barrels along confidently in its first couple of installments. The period details generally look swell, and the direction of the show is not only energetic but recalls the classic aesthetic of the first Cap film, as is only appropriate. (See the note below for more on that.)

“Agent Carter” doesn’t reinvent the spy game on TV, but it’s a crackling start to what I can only hope is a long-running, female-centered Marvel adventure tale. The comic-book company has several more TV series in the works (“Daredevil,” “A.K.A. Jessica Jones” and “Luke Cage” among them), and so far, Peggy Carter’s adventures are making me feel optimistic about what’s coming next.

Note: Louis D’Esposito, who directed the Peggy Carter Marvel One Shot, directed the first episode of “Agent Carter” and Joe Russo, co-director of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” directed the second hour.” During the summer, I read news reports that Marvel was exploring the idea of having “Captain America: The First Avenger” director Joe Johnston direct an episode of “Agent Carter,” but a Marvel spokesperson confirmed that Johnston did not helm an episode this season.

“Marvel’s Agent Carter” airs its first two episodes 8 p.m. ET Tuesday on ABC.

Ryan McGee and I discussed “Agent Carter,” “Downton Abbey,” “Galavant” and “Empire” on the first Talking TV podcast of 2015. The podcast here, on iTunes and below.

From Homeless To Harvard (And Beyond): Khadijah Williams Starts New Life In NYC (VIDEO)

In 2009, Oprah met Khadijah Williams, a driven young woman who grew up in homeless shelters but never stopped believing in herself and the power of education. Though she went to 12 different schools in 12 years, she managed to graduate high school with honors and was accepted into Harvard University. Four years later, she graduated with a degree in sociology and even got a shout-out from Oprah during her 2013 commencement speech.

Williams — who says she was in the bathroom when a friend came running in to tell her Oprah was talking about her on stage — now has quite an impressive reference. “Just to have someone like Miss Winfrey acknowledge you and say, ‘You did a great thing,’ … it’s not only a great confidence booster, but it’s also something I can send to employers like, “Look! Oprah talked about me, here’s my recommendation!'” Williams says.

“Oprah: Where Are They Now?” recently caught up with Williams in New York City, where she landed a job and moved into her own apartment after graduation. “Right now I am a project manager at an education technology firm,” she says. It’s a very adult job, I have actual responsibilities – which is a little bit scary, but it’s exciting.”

“Just being able to have my own apartment and make adult decisions — or try to, anyway — is very empowering,” Williams says. “And I absolutely want to give back. I will give back. And right now I’m just setting that foundation so I can do that.”

“Oprah: Where Are They Now?” airs Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on OWN. Programming note: In 2014, “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” airs on a new day and time. Catch up with past “Oprah Show” guests, newsmakers and celebrities on Fridays at 9 p.m. ET, beginning Jan. 3.
