Sotheby’s and Stadium Goods Team for Rare Sneaker Auction

Sotheby’s and Stadium Goods are partnering on a global online-only auction of 100 rare and limited-edition sneakers that opens today and runs through July 23. The auction includes a public exhibition at Sotheby’s New York Gallery at 1334 York Avenue.
The sneakers, which have been provided by Stadium Goods’ Trophy Case, the company’s collection of the rarest items, span several years and date as far back as the early Seventies with the Nike “Moon Shoe” made by Nike cofounder and Oregon University track coach Bill Bowerman for runners at the 1972 Olympic Trials. That shoe is estimated at $ 160,000 given its unworn condition.
Other models expected to draw interest include Virgil Abloh’s MCA Chicago Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 sneakers that were on display at the designer’s “Figures of Speech” exhibit at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. 
“We spend a lot of time on our Trophy Case,” said Stadium Goods cofounder and co-chief executive officer John McPheters. “A good chunk of items we’ve already had. We’ve done a ton of work behind creating this list of shoes and it’s indicative of how this world has changed.”

“We were looking for a collaborative partner to apply their DNA onto ours,” explained Montblanc creative director Zaim Kamal. “We reached out to Bape and they were happy about this collaboration. We can speak of Bape as a maison, because they have the same idea of detailing and excellence.”
Kamal had been a longtime fan and supporter of Bape and was introduced to the brand years ago when he was living in London. As a “child of the Eighties and Nineties” and “admirer of the Harajuku style,” he was drawn to the brand’s “new expression of streetwear” with “an otaku spin.” After connecting in Tokyo, the two brands set the project in motion.

The New York City Economic Development Corporation’s Made in New York campus is all about strengthening domestic manufacturing. True to that ethos, the Brooklyn-based team of nARCHITECTS, W Architecture and Landscape Architecture have been selected to design the garment production hub at the Bush Terminal in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
Started in 1999 by Eric Bunge and Mimi Hoang, nArchitects favors conceptually driven, socially engaging and technologically innovative work. The firm’s portfolio includes the expansion of the 450,000-square-foot ABC Dbayeh department store in Beirut and, Mini’s A/D/O design space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The firm is also part of the winning team led by James Corner Field Operations for Pierscape, the redesign of Chicago’s Navy Pier, Illinois’ most popular tourist attraction.
Perkins Eastman and nARCHITECTS will reimagine the two city-owned buildings on the Made in New York campus into a 200,000-square-foot garment manufacturing hub and a 160,000-square-foot light industrial manufacturing facility. In addition, W Architecture and Landscape Architecture, along with Dewberry engineers, have gotten the nod to lead infrastructure, streetscape, and public realm improvements across the nine-acre waterfront campus.

Donna Karan, Mashonda Tifrere’s Art Lead Her Team for ‘King Woman’ Exhibit at Urban Zen

Donna Karan has teamed with Mashonda Tifrere’s nonprofit Art Lead Her to put on an all-women exhibit called “King Woman” at Karan’s store and community space Urban Zen.
Pieces from Reisha Perlmutter, Delphine Diallo, Swoon and 12 other emerging and midcareer artists lined the walls of Urban Zen during a recent visit. Tifrere, dressed all in black just like Karan, pointed out one piece that especially moved her by Perlmutter. It’s a painting of a woman with vitiligo, her face peering above a pool of water in which her body’s submerged. Her hair is wet and slicked back.
“Reisha wanted to portray the woman in the portrait as strong and beautiful in her own skin,” Tifrere said. “On opening night, the woman came, and when she saw her picture hanging on the wall, she started bawling.”
There are individual stories like this one behind most of the pieces included in “King Woman”; Tifrere, who curated the showing, said it was imperative to forge relationships with the artists after selecting them to be part of the exhibition. She added she’d found all of them by looking around on Google and Instagram, then meeting them in person at art fairs.

Several arts-related shows and exhibitions are cropping up in fashion-friendly places.
As part of an ongoing effort to showcase artistic programs, Spring Place will be staging “Infoxication” Monday night.
The 50-minute multidisciplinary performance will feature art, music, dance and technology. The theme is technology’s presence in our lives. Infoxication is the latest arts-related collaboration at Spring, with the American Ballet Theatre and the Water Miller Center being others. Monday’s will be the first full production, and the largest one to date, with more than 20 collaborators, according to Spring Place’s art director, Roya Sachs. The full immersive experience includes product support from Google — Pixelbooks and Pixel phones. “It’s definitely in the vein of trying to create these more impactful and interactive programming and performances,” Sachs said.
The four-part experience is meant to take audience members on a visual, physical and mental journey. Ticket holders will learn the story of “waking, working, wanting and withdrawing.”
Collaborators include choreographer Dusan Tynek, a world premier composition by Danielle Eva Schwob, live body art by Heather Hansen, and performances by PubliQuartet and cellist Inbal Segev.

Andrea Lieberman, Petra Flannery Team for A.L.C. Dinner

The flurry of Los Angeles store openings continues at Palisades Village, the latest being A.L.C., the contemporary brand founded by former stylist Andrea Lieberman in 2008. Lieberman teamed with her former assistant and current super stylist Petra Flannery to host a small dinner at The Draycott on Thursday for her close friends Liz Friedlander, Jennifer Meyer, Erin Foster plus stylists Karla Welch, Erica Cloud and Annabelle Harron. Draycott owner Marissa Hermer was also in the mix, as was actress Olivia Hamilton.
“A small gathering is more my speed,” said Lieberman, a Westside resident. “I admire all these women so much and am so thankful for their support all these years.” Flannery has similar praise for her old boss and good friend. “I’ve learned so much from her, and how she puts her brains into her business. Andrea is proof that you can do it all — family, work, friends.”

Marc Jacobs Adds Olympia Le-Tan to Design Team

PARIS — Followers of Olympia Le-Tan will have seen that in August the designer vacated her Paris apartment to move to New York. And she’s settled in fast.
The French accessories designer, known for her whimsical hand-embroidered book clutches, has joined the design team of Marc Jacobs, WWD has learned. Her title could not immediately be learned.
A company spokesman confirmed the hire, while noting there are no plans to revive the Marc by Marc Jacobs line, last helmed by Luella Bartley and accessories genius Katie Hillier. “We are excited to have Olympia join Marc’s design team. We have a talented group of designers and look for people who bring new sensibilities and ideas to help bring Marc’s vision to life,” he said.
The move marks a new chapter for Le-Tan, who in July announced on Instagram that she was leaving the brand that carries her name. Le-Tan had quietly dropped off the Paris Fashion Week calendar last fall after being placed into receivership. Though Le-Tan never divulged details, it is understood she is losing the rights to her name after parting ways with Gregory Bernard, the French producer behind films including “Lagerfeld Confidential,” who helped her set up her house in 2009.

Yoox Net-a-porter, Bloomsbury Team on Fashion Video Archive Project

THE ARCHIVE COMES ALIVE: Yoox Net-a-porter is investing in education and the younger generations through a partnership with Bloomsbury Publishing that will make rare fashion-show footage available to the educational market.
YNAP has worked with Bloomsbury to digitize its runway archive collection between 1979 and 2003, before shows were automatically digitized. The result is more than 3,000 videos and hundreds of hours of footage that offer a window into fashion history and a new way for students to examine the evolution of the catwalk over the years, key collections and individual designers’ work.
The footage is supported by scholarly articles and video descriptions to make the archive easily discoverable. All accompanying content has been curated by Dr. Valerie Steele, fashion historian and director of the museum at Fashion Institute of Technology.
“We have always known the value of the archive to the educational community. It provides a great link to the future,” said Tara Tierney, YNAP’s digital collections curator.
Kathryn Earle, managing director at Bloomsbury Digital Resources, said the footage highlights the impact of some of the most influential designers of the period including the Antwerp Six, Rei Kawakubo and Hussein Chalayan.

Tommy Hilfiger, Lewis Hamilton Team for Capsule Collection

Lewis Hamilton, British Formula One racing driver and four-time Formula One World Champion, is gearing up to introduce a men’s capsule collection in collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. They will introduce the first Tommy x Lewis collection for fall retailing.
The news comes a month after Hamilton was named a global brand ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger Men’s, starting this spring, as reported. Hilfiger is owned by PVH Corp.
Hamilton revealed the collection logo to fans at an exclusive event in Shanghai on Wednesday, putting his own stamp on the Tommy Hilfiger flag. The Tommy x Lewis flag was unveiled in an art installation that shared the inspirations behind the design, including street art influences and projections of Hamilton’s own body art.

The collection will be revealed to editors on May 7.
As reported, Hamilton was named the face of Hilfiger men’s, which includes the Collection and Tailored lines as well as underwear and swimwear. The appointment is aimed at driving the growth of Hilfiger men’s worldwide and bringing the next generation of fans

Rugby-Inspired Aedelhard Wants Men to Join Its Team

The new men’s wear brand Aedelhard believes rugby teaches important values and lessons to its participants, and has aligned itself with the sport. That the game can be intensely competitive and at times violent is not lost on the brand.
“Beneath the seeming barbarism and occasional debauchery often associated with rugby lives a sport rooted in respect and a strict code of conduct,” Aedelhard declares on its web site. “It’s a game that instills teamwork and discipline.”
The sport has given the world one of the most enduring pieces of fashion — the rugby shirt. It’s that side of rugby that Aedelhard is tapping into, the “sport, intellect, sophistication and gentlemanly conduct — all derived from the game,” said Darrell Kopke, Aedelhard’s cofounder and chief executive officer.

“Dressing well is a form of good manners, and we’re simplifying the process with pieces that are easy to combine, accessibly priced, well-made and designed with intention,” added Michael Nguyen, cofounder and creative director.

Aedelhard wants to disrupt the technical apparel market with elevated, classically tailored and functional performance apparel. The company considers its pricing disruptive, with trousers retailing for $ 150, blazers, $ 380 and shirting, $ 120. “We’re bringing tailoring for the masses,” said Kopke.

Net-a-porter Amps Up Its Accessories Buying Team

BEEFING UP: Net-a-porter is making strategic personnel appointments in an effort to reinforce its accessories business.
The e-commerce site has named Nayla Touma as its buying director for shoes, handbags and accessories. Touma joins Net-a-porter from Bergdorf Goodman, where she worked as division merchandise manager for footwear.
She will report to Elizabeth von der Goltz, Net-a-porter’s global buying director — also a Bergdorf Goodman alum.
Touma is to begin her new role at the end of February, with plans to relocate to London in April. Prior to Bergdorf Goodman, Touma held various positions with Bloomingdale’s.
Her hire is just part of an effort by Net-a-porter to bulk up its accessories buying operation. The site has promoted Billie Faricy-Hyett to the role of buying manager for handbags, accessories and beauty. She previously served as senior buyer for handbags, accessories, fashion and demi-fine jewelry. Additionally, Thalia Tserevegou has been elevated to the role of buying manager for shoes from her previous role as senior buyer for shoes.
Von der Goltz said of these changes in a statement: “Reinforcing our core team is essential to us shaping and developing these growing areas of our business while adopting a progressively tactical approach to the integral categories of shoes, handbags
