Mindsight Lab Touts Fashion Pop-up Exhibition

MindSight Lab, a technical start-up for fashion industry solutions, launched “Up Down,” an exhibit focused on sustainable clothing design, located on Elizabeth Street in SoHo in New York with the aim of introducing ideas that can help “reduce the industry’s environmental costs,” as well as challenge visitors to discuss and redefine the modern-day meaning of sustainability.
As an interactive exhibit, Up Down is designed to lead guests through four stages of the garment-making process while introducing eco-conscious designs, materials and methods.
Presented in three sections, “Innovative Approach,” “Creative Zero Waste” and “Human, Nature, Fashion,” the exhibit underscores the relationship between humans and nature by highlighting the “contrast of unlimited human imagination versus limited natural resources,” and the “so-called natural materials that cost even more to the environment and society.” Standout items include Clémentine Sandner’s gorgeously designed upcycled Kimono handbags, “The Collage of Textiles” made of 200 “no longer needed” clothes and RenDu’s “Echo” soundscape installation that mimics rainfall on bamboo.

Antoine Arnault Touts Open-Doors Project at Lavish Paris Dinner

As a prelude to the fourth edition of LVMH’s Les Journées Particulières event this fall — which will give the public a chance to visit leathergoods workshops, perfume laboratories, vineyards and other production sites belonging to the French luxury conglomerate — a happy few got a glimpse into the inner workings of two of the French group’s brands on Monday night.
Antoine Arnault, wearing his hat as the new head of communication and image for LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, invited select editors attending the couture shows for a glass or two of Dom Pérignon at Chaumet’s 18th-century salon, a historic monument, and then spirited guests to the Louis Vuitton flagship on Place Vendôme for a lavish dinner.
Krug was poured once everyone assembled in one of the VIP salons, a plush space where Louis Vuitton chief executive officer Michael Burke described a decade-long process to reunite two historic town houses and restore them to their former grandeur.
“That’s how we like to cherish our brands, our houses and our assets. This is why I think Antoine is so right in making it available to the public,” he said.
Guests were then ushered into a specialty atelier next door that makes custom Vuitton designs, including

Ferragamo CEO Touts Benefit of Milan Expo

EXPO-NENTIAL: Michele Norsa, chief executive officer of Salvatore Ferragamo, gave a thumbs up to Milan’s Expo. “We’ve seen an extraordinary increase in business here in August but also in September,” Norsa said ahead of the show on Sunday. The executive explained that the planning of trips to Expo has grown more structured and organized since the international fair opened in May. This has benefitted not only Milan, but Italy in general. “Most visitors stay in Milan and at the Expo for a day and a half, but also travel to Florence or Venice and Rome, for a total of at least six days in the country. The presence of tourists creates income, which generates spending, and a total positive effect,” said Norsa.

Expo, which is focused on the theme of nutrition and feeding the planet, is slated to close at the end of October.
