Ones to Watch: Phyllis Chan and Suzzie Chung of YanYan

Can sustainable fashion be both polished and quirky?
Hong Kong-based designers and childhood best friends Phyllis Chan and Suzzie Chung are banking on it with their premium knitwear brand YanYan, which utilizes deadstock and leftover yarns from mills and knitwear factories.
The two are aiming to create a youth factor around sustainability, blending grandma elegance with a playful spirit in their designs, and simultaneously touching on hot-button issues facing the fashion industry — including low-waste production, experimental retail strategy, reacting to the pace and competitiveness of fast fashion, and putting out product with more long-term, less trend-driven, potential.
“We thought about what’s a good and interesting way to create product,” Chan said on a call with Chung from Hong Kong, adding: “We didn’t want to put stuff out there that doesn’t contribute anything new. We wanted to make sweaters that were special. We wanted to challenge ourselves and make sweaters that aren’t traditional. The knitwear market is starting to grow. It’s a space for people to have fun and experiment.”
Knitwear was a natural venture for Chan, too, who moved back to Hong Kong after spending nearly a decade at Rag & Bone in New York, most recently as the director of knitwear until

Video: Watch Barry Manilow Perform Copacabana at Fashion Week

Michael Kors brought some additional star power to the finale of his fall 2019 show: the iconic American singer, Barry Manilow.
After the last model took her walk on the runway, the house lights dimmed and much to everyone’s delight, a curtain was drawn back revealing Manilow decked out in a bedazzled orange blazer. And there it was, that iconic first line: “Her name was Lola…”

The singer began singing his hit song, “Copacabana,” as models took their finale walk. They then made their way to the stage to join Manilow, including Bella Hadid who took the singer’s hand and swayed with him back and forth.
The rest of the models took their position around the stage, dancing together as Manilow showed off his own moves. The runway at Cipriani Wall Street was decorated with an array of disco balls, fitting for the singer who got his start in the Sixties.

As Manilow finished the number, he was joined by Kors and model Patti Hansen, who hugged and kissed the singer as the audience gave him a standing ovation.
While the performance was a surprise to guests, Kors had hinted at something special on the brand’s Instagram account an hour prior to the show, informing

Ones to Watch: Han Kjobenhavn

PARIS — For Jannik Wikkelso Davidsen, founder of Han Kjobenhavn, Paris was the natural next step for the Danish ready-to-wear brand.
“We’ve been showing in Copenhagen for the last eight years, and somehow we felt like we needed to move forward,” he said over the phone, a couple of days before the brand’s show on the opening day of Paris Men’s Week. “Paris was the place to be because of its rich history, but also from a business point of view: it’s where the focus is right now. Also, I liked the challenge.”
Han Kjobenhavn started out in 2008 as an eyewear brand, but developed into men’s wear two years later with the introduction of a select collection of 15 Japanese indigo-dyed pieces, which immediately got picked up by local retailers such as Storm Copenhagen. Since then, the brand has grown organically, opening two stores — one in Copenhagen, one in Aarhus — and adding women’s wear to its range a couple of seasons ago.
Davidsen’s main source of inspiration is his upbringing, growing up part of a working class family in the suburbs of Copenhagen in the Nineties. “You would create your style by mixing wardrobes: your dad’s oversize blazers and suits, your

Ones to Watch: Smalto

PARIS — It’s the dawn of a new era for Francesco Smalto, who welcomed new creative director Jean Luc Amsler to its team in September. “The goal is to modernize the brand’s image, to make it into the audacious house it used to be,” said the Swiss-born designer of the men’s wear line, which was founded in 1962 by Smalto himself.
His first collection for the brand, around 40 looks to be presented during Paris men’s week, completely reworks the masculine silhouette. “Traditional codes in men’s fashion have been blown to pieces. The suit is no longer seen as a uniform, there is a real freedom in the way men wear their garments. For example, they have completely discarded the tie,” Amsler explained.
For the first time, the creation of the Smalto ready-to-wear collection was handled both by the brand’s Italian manufacturers and in-house bespoke tailors at the Paris atelier. They revisited the Smalto fit, adding different suit cuts to cater to the new male silhouette, according to the designer, there is a real demand for more fitted styles.

Ones to Watch: Casablanca

“I want to be the first luxury brand out of North Africa,” said Charaf Tajer who, riding the luxury sportswear wave, is set to unleash his own colorful “après-sport” spin on the world. Having presented his first collection in a Paris showroom last June, the designer on Jan. 17 will stage his first show at the Hôtel Mona Bismarck.
He’s been building up to this moment. With a background in architecture, Tajer was a partner in PPP — a multidisciplinary Paris-based creative collective spanning the fashion label Pigalle and the Pain O ChoKolat and Le Pompon fashion events and nightlife concepts — and has collaborated with Virgil Abloh.
Tajer grew up in Belleville in Paris, but his parents met working in an atelier in the Moroccan city that inspired the label’s name. Produced between France and Casablanca, “the collection is 50-50 and I am 50-50,” he said.
Based on “comfort and elegance,” the label’s direction combines the ease of a hotel bathrobe with the swagger of the peacocks in tracksuits in amazing colors the designer would see out on the town in Casablanca during his youth in the Nineties and delivered with a touch of humor.

PARIS — It is System Studios’ first time on the Paris Fashion Week schedule, but the brand has been present in the French capital for quite some time. The South Korean ready-to-wear brand’s men’s and women’s collection can be found at Parisian concept-store Tom Greyhound, where its performance led the brand to start thinking about exposing its designs to an international audience.
“System Studios has become one of the three best-selling brands in the store, after Off-White and Loewe,” said David Kang, who heads the Paris division of Handsome Corp., the South Korean company owning both System and Tom Greyhound.
Tom Greyhound is System Studio’s only point of sale outside of Asia; it counts 100 retailers in South Korea alone. “We’ve had a lot of positive comments from our Parisian clients about the brand,” continued Kang. “It confirmed our wish to launch internationally.”
Inspired by Seoul’s distinctive street style, System Studios was launched in 1990 for women’s wear and 2008 for men’s wear. The brand’s international design teams — 47 people for women’s, 36 for men’s — are based in Seoul.
Based on the concept of mix and match, classical pieces, like a tailored jacket or a striped shirt, are modernized with more streetwear-inspired

Ones to Watch: Fumito Ganryu

PARIS — After making an impact at Pitti Uomo last June with the presentation of his first namesake collection since quitting Comme des Garçons, Fumito Ganryu is capitalizing on the momentum of the category he’s best known for — streetwear — and taking on Paris.
Ganryu — who counts among his peers “bad boys” Facetasm’s Hiromichi Ochiai and Sasquatchfabrix’s Daisuke Yokoyama — worked with longtime collaborator 6Up on the production of the Paris show Tuesday at the Hôtel d’Évreux. “It’s something people need for the 21st century,” said the designer of his direction, though it “doesn’t have to start with a new material or new technologies.”
Instead, explained the designer in an interview in the run-up to the show, the aim is to present his vision of the future “in the simplest way,” cutting through the “disorder” of mainstream brands in a saturated market that, for him, are just churning out “revivals of a heritage look.”
His first collection, with its future-wear vibe and deconstructed styling (think Neoprene hoodies tied at the waist to create a seamless apron effect or a yellow jacket attached to the front of another yellow jacket that gives a weird surrealistic feel), represented “one small facet of my

What to Watch: New York Fashion Week: Men’s Latest Challenges

New York Fashion Week: Men’s has had trouble gaining a foothold since it was launched by the Council of Fashion Designers of America four years ago. The upcoming fall shows — slated for Feb. 4 to 6 — are facing even bigger challenges. First, an unexpected one-time shift in dates by the trade shows in Las Vegas means that retailers and editors who usually attend both will have to make a choice or abbreviate one or both of the events. Project, Liberty Fairs and Agenda will be held Feb. 5 to 7.
On top of that, many of fashion’s biggest and buzziest names have opted to either hold dual-gender shows or have decamped to other cities. Tom Ford will again hold a men’s and women’s show, as he has in past seasons, at 8 p.m. on Feb. 6, officially ending the men’s shows. The women’s shows kick off with Ralph Lauren on Feb. 7 at 10 a.m.
Also opting for dual-gender shows later in the week are Palm Angels — which is making its New York debut — on Feb. 8; John Elliott on Feb. 9; Opening Ceremony on Feb. 10, and Michael Kors on the final day, Feb. 13.

Ones to Watch: Tiziano Guardini

For Italian designer Tiziano Guardini, sustainability is a personal matter. “I’m a vegetarian and I really have this almost primordial need to go back to living in harmony with nature, to respect it,” he said. After graduating in economics, Guardini decided to join the KOEFIA fashion academy in Rome where he followed a master’s degree in product management. He then started to collaborate with local ateliers, but taking part in AltaRoma’s Limited/Unlimited project in 2012 was the real turning point in his career. “It’s an initiative promoting free creativity without any commercial purpose and it was such a good opportunity for me because for the first time I looked into myself and told a story [close to my heart],” Guardini recalled.
In sync with that edition’s “Sculptural” theme, Guardini presented statement garments including coats made of pine needles and sculptural dresses crafted from licorice roots. After the project, he decided to develop his sustainable approach in more contemporary pieces, as he made it his mission to have “everybody dressing in a sustainable way in the future.” He gradually started to research more common eco-friendly materials to introduce in his offering, beginning with cruelty-free silk.

Ones to Watch: Courtney Pellow

Determined not to be defeated by New Zealand’s isolation — and before she had even launched her brand — emerging Auckland-based designer Courtney Pellow flew to New York earlier this year to find a showroom. Zannick Studio took her on and she didn’t have to wait long to get noticed.
In September, Gigi Hadid attracted international media attention when she stepped out at Milan Fashion Week in a pair of the designer’s eye-catching patchwork Up-Cycled Sock Pants.
Handmade from faulty wool socks discarded by a New Zealand manufacturer and retailing on Pellow’s web store for 1,196 New Zealand dollars or $ 821 at current exchange, the pants were among several pieces from the designer’s debut collection that were loaned to Hadid’s stylist.
A day later, Hadid was photographed again in another Courtney Pellow style: the White Camo Cropped Jean, a relaxed-fit, mid-rise jean in a camouflage print with contrast denim waistband and patch pockets.
While upcycling accounts for just 20 percent of Pellow’s production, sustainability is front of mind for the Auckland University of Technology graduate, who is using organic cotton in her T-shirts.
Other repurposed products include the Up-Cycled Sock Jumper and a range of Bush Shirts crafted from vintage wool blankets that Pellow sources from

This past summer, Paris worked for Senator Ed Markey in Washington D.C. “It was a little scary at first because I was one of the youngest ones there,” he says. “I didn’t know that much about politics and legislation but he really inspired me to educate myself about issues that were important to me so that one day I could be the change I wanted to see.”

The video addresses several issues “that are relevant to my generation,” Paris adds. “I’m a surfer so of course I’m sensitive to protecting the environment but also affordable education, immigration reform, affordable health care, gun control. I talked to a wide variety of kids and heard their thoughts and voices and a lot of them were similar.”

As for possibly running for office himself some day, Paris is keeping all his options open.

“I really want to be a filmmaker and make documentaries but I could maybe see that path down the road,” he says. “I think you need to be really passionate to want to do that.”

For now he hopes those who view the video will embrace that “voting is a privilege and it’s free and if you don’t vote, then you aren’t engaged in shaping your own future,” he adds. “It’s wild to see a bunch of kids my age taking action. No matter what you believe, the earth is what we all have in common, let’s just make our voices heard and inspire others.”

What to Watch: Men’s Market Grows Although Changes Abound

Men’s wear continues to make strides as guys from all walks of life prove that it’s not only women that care how they look.
From the red-hot streetwear market to suits with a slim modern fit — and technical attributes in everything — men continue to upgrade their wardrobes to keep up with the latest trends.
And it’s showing in the numbers.
Men’s wear is now estimated to represent 40 percent of the global apparel market and continues to grow. According to Euromonitor International, global sales of men’s wear increased 3.7 percent to $ 419 billion in 2017, outpacing women’s, which rose 3.4 percent to $ 643 billion.
In the U.S., sales hit $ 85 billion last year and are on track to rise 1.1 percent to over $ 86 billion this year, Euromonitor projected.
Other firms’ figures bear that out as well. According to Statista, retail sales of the men’s market in the U.S. were $ 62.1 billion in 2013 and are projected to hit nearly $ 75 billion this year.
And NPD Group said for the six months ended June 2018, total men’s apparel sales rose 3 percent to $ 29 billion with active bottoms and knit shirts gaining in popularity while dress shirts and woven shirts declined. For the second

Steve Aoki to Be Face of Diesel’s New Watch Collection

Steve Aoki has snagged his newest fashion industry partnership.
The electronic dance music producer and DJ will become the watch ambassador for Diesel, serving as the face of the brand’s first transparency watch collection, which is launching today.
Last year, Aoki teamed with Asics to serve as a brand ambassador and footwear designer. This supplemented the Dim Mak fashion and lifestyle label he created more than a decade ago and his partnership in Vision Street Wear.
The deal with Diesel is intended to promote the new blue transparency watch line, the inspiration for which was drawn from the indigo dyeing of jeans, a hallmark of the brand. The new watch collection displays cream details on the dial that are inspired by the stitches used in denim, and cases and straps that fade from blue to crystal clear.
Andrea Rosso, creative director of licenses for Diesel and son of founder Renzo Rosso, said he’s known Aoki for a while and believes he and Diesel “have something in common. He never stops, he’s a manic guy; I’ve never met a guy who can do so much. And at Diesel, we never stop either. His style and his sense of aesthetic perfectly match the design and the clashing

WATCH: Veteran Reunited with Beloved Service Dog Stolen During Move

The stress of a big move from Illinois to Florida was amplified for U.S. Marine veteran Lanasu Whitner and her husband Tim when Lanasu’s service dog Wrigley was stolen, along with the couple’s car.

According to ABC News, the Whitners were stopped at an Indianapolis gas station when three individuals rushed up behind the vehicle while both the Whitners were outside of it, jump inside and drove off — with Wrigley.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to the incident and quickly posted a call for help on its Facebook page, asking locals to keep an eye out for Wrigley, a Rhodesian Ridgeback that Lanasu got to help with her seizures and migraines.

There was a break in the case when the Whitners’ SUV was recovered, but unfortunately, the service dog was not inside.

Thankfully, shortly after finding the vehicle, sightings of Wrigley started to trickle in to the Whitners and the IMPD. The military couple, who met on a mission 20 years ago, started to search the area where the car was found, in hopes that they would find Wrigley themselves.

After they turned up nothing, the Whitners decided to place a few articles of their clothing around the area where a skittish Wrigley was spotted by locals, in hopes the service dog would recognize the scent and reveal himself.

It turns out the nose knows: Wrigley eventually sniffed out one of the shirts and was reunited with his family, who wasn’t too far away. The touching reunion was caught on video.

The clip shows Wrigley eagerly bounding toward his owners and happily accepting kisses and pats.

So far the IMPD has apprehended two of the suspects from the car theft and is still searching for the third, but the Whitners, especially Lanasu, are just happy to have their best friend back in their arms.

Milan Fashion Week Men’s Spring 2019: Ones to Watch

LES HOMMES URBAN

Les Hommes is expanding into streetwear with the launch of the Les Hommes Urban line, which is available for sale at the brand’s Milan showroom during fashion week.
“The LHU collection was born out of a creative and a practical idea. When we go back to the very early days of Les Hommes, there were a lot of urban influences in the collection, such as graffiti and workwear. It is a creative playground that we always embraced and are very fascinated by,” said Tom Notte, who designs the collection with longtime business partner Bart Vandebosch.
“From the practical point of view, we were pushed to launch LHU by the feedback we were getting from our own stores. In Antwerp, where the first store was founded, we were confronted with a demand from young guys who were very interested in our collection, but because of its positioning, it was out of reach for them. We created a streetwear brand that carries the originality of a designer brand since many pieces are treated and designed with the same care as we do for Les Hommes.”
For their first LHU collection, the designers took inspiration

Original Grain Creates Special Red Sox Watch

The Yankees-Red Sox rivalry has extended to wristwatches.
Last year, Original Grain Watch Co., which specializes in storytelling timepieces, offered a limited-edition collection themed to the Bronx Bombers that used wood from the original 1923 Yankee Stadium seats.
Not to be outdone, Original Grain has turned its attention this season to its division rivals, the Red Sox. The company has created another limited-edition championship watch set, but this one features reclaimed wood from the 1946 wooden seats at Fenway Park. That watch — the .406 Barrel timepiece —commemorates the batting average that Red Sox star Ted Williams ended the 1941 season with — the last major leaguer to do so.
The watch will retail for $ 595 and launch on June 29, just in time for the start of this weekend’s series between the two teams.
The Yankee watch is still available as well and retails for $ 795.

Sean Lowe Opens Up About 4-Week-Old Son Isaiah: I’m Excited to Watch My Boys ‘Grow Up Together’

Father’s Day is just around the corner and this year, Sean Lowe is celebrating two times over.

“I take so much pride in fatherhood,” the 34-year-old former Bachelor — who welcomed his second child with wife Catherine Giudici Lowe, son Isaiah Hendrix, on May 18 — tells PEOPLE.

Lowe and his wife Catherine are also parents to Samuel Thomas, 2 next month. And just like with their first child, they didn’t find out the sex of the new baby until his birth.

“I was very surprised that we had another boy. I couldn’t believe it for a second when I saw after he came out! I was mentally prepared to have a girl.”

Continues Lowe, “So far everyone is saying he looks like me. Which is great because with Samuel, everybody says he has his mama’s face and my coloring. So it’s nice that I have a kid who looks like me now.”

And the father of two says he’s excited to one day teach his boys some of the lessons he learned from his own dad.

“My dad was always the one who would rather do something himself rather than pay someone else to do it,” says Lowe, who has partnered with Lowe’s and CRAFTSMAN.

“I want to take that same spirit and instill it in my sons. It’s such a valuable tool to have — if something goes wrong, I can fix it myself! Not to mention I can have something to pass down to them. The CRAFTSMAN Mechanics Tool Set will last forever.”

RELATED: Catherine Giudici Lowe Feels “Absolutely Complete” After Son No. 2: “It’s Been So Surreal”

For now, the former reality star is grateful to be getting some stretches of snoozes (“Isaiah is a great sleeper!”) and treasuring the moments of brotherly bonding.

“Samuel constantly wants to give him kisses and Isaiah just lays there and takes it and never cries,” says Lowe. “He’s such a chill baby.”

“I just think it will be so fun to watch them grow up together and be best friends,” Lowe shares. “I’m really excited to watch the dynamic as these boys grow into men.”

RELATED VIDEO: Happy Father’s Day to Some of Our Favorite Dads!

As for the big day on Sunday, “I just want quality time with the kids and Catherine,” says Lowe. “There’s a donut shop down the street from us so we’ll walk down there as a family. And we might go to the community water park. It’s really hot in Dallas!”

Still, Lowe admits it sometimes feels “bizarre” to actually be a father. “I feel too immature to have a family sometimes,” he says with a laugh. “But our goal is to fill our home with laughter and love, and we do that every day.”

He explains, “It’s fun to be goofy, while still maintaining discipline. I crack a lot of jokes at Samuel’s expense. But he’s going to grow up with a good sense of humor and always knowing how much his dad loves him.”

WATCH: Go Inside the Cannes Film Festival’s Most Exclusive Party Spot — the Hôtel du Cap

 

Want to vacation among Hollywood’s most glamorous? Just head to the Hôtel du Cap.

With the 2018 Cannes Film Festival getting under way, stars are gathering at what is often dubbed the most exclusive hotel on the French Riviera — its full name is the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc — to mingle and party throughout the nearly two-week long fest. And PEOPLE Deputy Editor J.D. Heyman is giving you an inside look.

“This has been a Hollywood hotel since the beginning of the 20th century,” explains Heyman.

RELATED: All About the Utah Resort Where Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima Celebrated His Birthday

The hotel is a hot spot during Cannes. Last year, everyone from Uma Thurman and Will Smith to Jessica Chastain and Tobey Maguire stepped out at the amfAR Gala, held at the hotel every year. And models including Emily Ratajkowski and Coco Rocha shared glam photos of themselves enjoying the iconic property on social media.

 

The previous year, on-again couple Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry all but confirmed their relationship with a cheeky Instagram post snapped on the hotel’s famous steps.

The property has also been a fixture in literature and a getaway spot for some of America’s most iconic luminaries.

Fitzgerald based the hotel in Tender is the Night ” says Heyman, adding that the Kennedy’s often chose the oceanfront hotel as a vacation destination. ” John F. Kennedy was here when he was 21 years old.” (The hotel is located just off the Boulevard John F. Kennedy.)

During the festival, the hotel serves as the site of numerous parties, including the amfAR benefit and the De Grisogono jewelry party.

RELATED: Kylie Jenner’s Post-Baby Birthday Hideaway and More Celeb-Favorite Hotels Around the World

And with Hollywood guests as hotel regulars, it’s no wonder rooms can cost at least $ 2,000 a night. In fact, up until 2006, Hôtel du Cap was a cash-only hotel, meaning guests had to either bring wads of bills in their suitcases or wire money to pay for their stay.

But the price is well worth the extravagant amenities and breathtaking views.

“It stretches over 20 acres here of pines and tropical gardens,” says Heyman. “The Hôtel du Cap is the jewel of the French Riviera.”

Ones to Watch: Batsheva’s Downtown Modesty

Amid a moment of evolving gender norms, Batsheva Hay — a former litigator — is looking to spin an empowered narrative from over-the-top modesty. In a single season, her namesake dress brand, Batsheva, has found a following, nearly selling out at Opening Ceremony.
Batsheva’s pastoral designs meld elements of Anne of Green Gables, Laura Ashley, and Eighties neo-Victoriana. Ruffled sleeves, collars and hems extend from mid-neck to knee. Hay’s dresses have found popularity among young downtown types, who pair the designs with old trainers and mussed-up hair.
For fall 2018, Hay has expanded the line to include an assortment of matching fabric handbags — each fashioned to look like small babushka pouches.

Hay, the wife of photographer Alexei Hay, embarked on the project as a post-partum hobby. “After quitting my legal job and having two kids I felt like I was wasting my intelligence and energy. I just had the desire to make some clothes I wanted to wear,” the native New Yorker explained.
“In motherhood I had a weird identity shift and body shift and I didn’t enjoy shopping anymore, I didn’t like anything except my old vintage clothes. They were in complete disrepair and I went to remake one of them with the

Ones to Watch: Paris Men’s Fashion Week

PARIS — From the debut collection of design-led sustainable men’s brand, Phipps, to Nïuku’s modern-day tribute to men’s tailoring of yore, here are some of the new talents to look out for at Paris Men’s Fashion Week, which kicks into high gear today.

“It’s about acknowledging that we’re all people, we’re in this together,” said Spencer Phipps, founder of Phipps, a new men’s wear line mixing sustainability and style that is due to launch on Jan. 20 during Paris Men’s Week. (The venue is still to be confirmed.)
The Paris-based designer, who is from San Francisco, cut his teeth in the men’s studio of Marc Jacobs in New York before working for Dries Van Noten in Antwerp for three years. After leaving Van Noten, he spent eight months researching manufacturers and materials. “I did my graduate collection in sustainability in 2008 at Parsons and it was like a joke. I ended up finding one manufacturer in New England that was basically some hippy commune that made hemp and linen and one cotton flannel,” he said.
So Phipps opted to work with manufacturers in Portugal, “a country that is basically certified [for sustainability].”
“After their economy crashed, at the same time as everyone

WATCH: Gerard Butler and 50 Cent Get Quizzed and Schooled on Their Spanish-Language Skills

50 Cent (née Curtis Jackson) and Gerard Butler are the stars of new action thriller Den of Thieves. The movie exposes Los Angeles’s criminal underbelly pitting two opposing forces against one another — that of an exclusive team of law enforcement officials within the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and that of a clever gang of outlaws who’ve masterly robbed innumerable banks. Unlike your typical “cops and robbers” drama, the lines separating the good guys from the bad guys is blurred, as the bandits try to execute — and the cops try to thwart — an impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank of downtown Los Angeles. Butler as Nick Flanagan leads the gang of cops and 50 Cent plays outlaw Levi Enson.

50 Cent and Butler put aside their tough guy roles to get grilled by PEOPLE CHICA on their Spanish-speaking skills.

Watch the duo learn español below:

After brushing up on their Spanish, the pair revealed what makes Den of Thieves stand out from other heist flicks. “You never know where it’s going to go,” said Butler. “It’s a clever movie. It kind of has it all. You see at the gang level. You see them at the performance level, and then you’re also getting these surprising, emotional moments with families and lives gone wrong.”

50 Cent agreed, adding: “It’s like cops and robbers and a lot of times those films don’t show you who the characters are, their lives and actual backgrounds. It’s interesting to see that part.”

The film, out in theaters today, also stars O’Shea Jackson and Pablo Schreiber.

London Fashion Week Men’s Fall 2018: Ones to Watch

John Alexander Skelton
Born and raised in York, John Alexander Skelton received his master’s in fashion men’s wear at Central Saint Martins and took on internships at E. Tautz and Patrik Ervell before launching his label last year. Selected by Giles Deacon, Skelton is a recipient of the Sarabande scholarship, an initiative from The Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation that aids young designers. He is working out of a studio at Sarabande in east London.
Sustainability is a key theme for Skelton, who incorporates repurposed materials into his ranges and takes a DIY approach to his work. He has a loom in his studio and many of his fabrics are handwoven, as is much of his knitwear. “Everything I dye is also done by hand using natural dye. The handcrafted element is my signature, in a way,” said the designer.
For fall 2018, Skelton has been working with mills in Ireland, mixing British wool and Irish linen.
“I have been doing a lot of hand weaving, as well, on the loom. I have also done a few natural dyes this time, one using an ancient European dye, the European version of indigo, called woad,” he said.
Skelton’s main focus has always been on the process and

What to Watch: How Emerging Streetwear Brands Are Navigating 2018

What’s next for streetwear? Critics of the category say the frenzy — see ComplexCon or the crowds that form around Supreme every week — is unsustainable and unhealthy for the market. Newer brands, meanwhile, believe it’s an ideal time to expand their businesses. Here, three young streetwear brands detail how they will approach the year and what they believe is in the pipeline for the category.
424

Del the Funky Homosapien in 424. 

Guillermo Andrade opened his Los Angeles concept store, FourTwoFour, which is located on Fairfax, in 2010. He sold pieces from Fear of God along with more established firms such as Rick Owens and Thom Browne. By 2014, Andrade started his own line, 424, that’s been picked up by retailers including Barneys New York and SSENSE.
WWD: What do you think about the current state of streetwear?
Guillermo Andrade: It seems to me that it is very positive. The amount of opportunity out there for a young brand like mine is exponential.
WWD: How do you plan on navigating the industry in 2018?
G.A.: Amongst the sea of hype and all the noise around hot brands, there is one thing that cannot be forgotten and that is product is king. I will continue to focus

What to Watch: Sneaker Chains Constrict

While the demand for sneakers continues to increase, it’s no longer enough to sell them in a run-of-the-mill retail environment.
Larger chains including Foot Locker, which closed 24 U.S. stores in 2017, and Shiekh Shoes, a West Coast retailer with 120 stores that filed for bankruptcy in November, must adapt to a changing consumer who wants to buy special product in a thoughtful space and is inundated with alternative ways to purchase shoes — whether that’s an e-commerce site, specialty boutique, resale app, or a festival and marketplace like ComplexCon or Sneaker Con.
“Today I think we have a few too many sneaker stores in the U.S.,” said Yu-Ming Wu, the cofounder of Sneaker Con. “There is an incredible demand for rare sneakers but when it comes to the general release sneakers like Air Jordans, the supply doesn’t meet the demand. Some of these guys have relied on the old model that every Saturday an Air Jordan is going to sell out, but that’s not always going to hold true today.”
Shiekh Shoes owes $ 16 million to Nike, and the store’s founder, Shiekh Ellahi, attributes his troubles to the shrinking demand for bricks-and-mortar retailers as well as suppliers’ desire to sell their products
