Matt Hardy on Being ‘Woken’ in WWE: “Patience is Key”

On Tuesday, January 16th, WWE 2K18’s Enduring Icons DLC drops and fans will be able to add Matt and Jeff Hardy, along with WWE Hall of Famers Beth Phoenix and The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, to their game rosters.

I spoke with Matt Hardy, who’s currently in the midst of a fantastical feud with Bray Wyatt, about appearing in his first WWE game in a long while, finally bringing his “Broken/Woken” persona to Monday Night RAW, and whether or not his current story could lead to a Final Deletion-style match in WWE.

IGN: It’s been a long time since you’ve been in a WWE video game. What’s it like for you to be a part of 2K18’s Enduring Icons DLC?

Matt Hardy: Very exciting. Absolutely riveting. I’m looking forward to seeing it and I’m absolutely ecstatic to be in a 2K game again after seven years. Myself and my brother to be once again involved in a WWE video game is very special.

Kate Middleton Proved Her Mom Skills with This Quick-Thinking Move Today

Royal mom to the rescue!

When Kate Middleton, who is expecting her third child in April, came across a young boy who looked sick during a royal outing in Coventry on Tuesday, she immediately sprang into action.

“Princess Kate came over and give him a sickbag, our little Craig,” Carole Flynn, a learning mentor at Corpus Christi primary school, said. “I think he was a little bit overcome.”

Craig Skipper, a 10-year-old student at Corpus Christi, had been waiting for three hours in the cold to see the royal couple’s arrival.

“He went quite pale,” Flynn said. “She came over to speak to him, and noticed he was not very well. She asked if he was okay. She bent down and was concerned.”

Kate then went over to talk to one of her bodyguards and came back with a brown paper bag for him in case he got sick.

“It was lovely of her,” Flynn said. “She really took time with him. You can tell she is a mom, and has got that caring side.”

Fortunately, the bag turned out not to be necessary.

“He is a little bit better now,” Flynn added.

Kate wasn’t the only one putting her parenting reflexes to good use. Prince William expertly calmed down a little girl in the crowd who was crying because she wanted a hot chocolate.

“I have to go down now,” William told her before he had to go into the Coventry Cathedral for his next appointment. But before turning away to leave, he asked her if he should order her a hot chocolate — with marshmallows!

The young girl enthusiastically approved. “With lots of cream,” she said.

William was also given some advice for when the couple welcomes their third child in a few months — get lots of sleep.

Mom of three, Kelly Brown, who was in the crowd with her 2-year-old daughter, told reporters, “I told William ‘I’ve got three kids so get as much sleep as you can,’ and he laughed and said, ‘I’m trying.’ “

The Show/Presentation Divide

MILAN — Does the men’s wear industry need fashion shows?
After trying out the catwalk, several men’s wear brands — from Brioni to Canali — have returned to the presentation format this fashion season just as Pitti Uomo continues to shine, drawing international buyers and press to the exhibition. To be sure, the Florence-based trade show has been growing by inviting young or cutting-edge designers from around the world for runway shows and presentations. But much of its authority and relevance rests on the array of men’s wear brands showing their collections at their stands.
At the same time, Milan’s Men’s Fashion Week is going through a transition phase, as several brands have opted for coed shows and moved to women’s fashion week, from Gucci and Bottega Veneta to Missoni and Salvatore Ferragamo.
Whatever the case, it appears that there is no longer one clear-cut strategy to unveiling a collection and that anything goes. Actually, experimentation is key.
“I think that breaking the patterns is good and nobody knows what will happen next,” said Kean Etro, creative director of men’s wear at the family-owned company. “Entrepreneurs should take risks, and if you do the same old, it’s boring.”
Etro last season opted for a coed runway format, although

Sisley Unveils New Hair-care Brand

BRAND NEW: Sisley is launching a new brand — this time, for hair.
“It’s a rather emotional moment for us to introduce a new brand,” said Philippe d’Ornano, president of Sisley, during a party held in Paris on Monday evening. “The last brand we launched was by my mother and father — Sisley.” That was in 1976.
Cut to today, and the luxury beauty company will shortly roll out Hair Rituel by Sisley, whose product collection includes a revitalizing volumizing shampoo, a revitalizing smoothing shampoo, a restructuring conditioner, a regenerating hair mask and a hair-care oil.

Rossignol Men’s Fall 2018

For Rossignol’s Studio collection, Andrea Pompilio showed respect for the history of the brand and said he wished to “telegraph the precision and technicality” of the company’s expertise in the mountains for “daily, performing city pieces.”
The designer highlighted Rossignol’s down jackets, rendering them season-less and ultralight. Pompilio layered the pieces, designed to be combined freely. A standout look comprised a padded corduroy jacket with knitwear intarsia and a removable ecological shearling collar, worn over comfortable and loose pied-de-poule pants.
Functional details, such as snap-hooks and ski-lift badges, became decorative elements for the city, as did mesh pockets, applied on the sleeves of a checkered shirt in vivid and contrasting orange and blue.

EXCLUSIVE: Kaia Gerber Designs Capsule Collection With Karl Lagerfeld

PARIS — Move over, Gigi — there’s a new “It” girl in town.
Only three months after her stellar debut catwalk season, Kaia Gerber has inked her first big design collaboration, with Karl Lagerfeld, no less. The 16-year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford has worked on a capsule collection that will hit stores in September, WWD has learned exclusively.
Consisting of ready-to-wear and accessories, including footwear, sunglasses and jewelry, the line is described as blending Lagerfeld’s Parisian chic aesthetic and Gerber’s signature West Coast casual style, which has garnered her 2.7 million followers on Instagram.
The Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia collection will launch globally in Karl Lagerfeld stores, online at Karl.com and with select wholesale partners.
Lagerfeld singled out Gerber as a rising talent months before her breakout season in September, which saw her walk the catwalk for 18 brands, including Calvin Klein, Prada, Saint Laurent and Versace.
She ended it with an honor most seasoned models would die for: Opening the Chanel show for Lagerfeld, who in addition to heading his own label is creative director of Chanel and Italian fur specialist Fendi.
“When Karl first told us his idea to collaborate with Kaia, we were all excited by the incredible potential and power of bringing their

Wrong Woman Is Kidnapped and Killed in Alleged Murder-for-Hire Plot: Police

A Florida woman was kidnapped and killed in what police are calling a murder-for-hire plot gone awry.

In a press conference held on Friday night, Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson revealed that the plot began after Ishnar Marie Lopez-Ramos, 35, allegedly hired Alexis Ramos-Rivera, 22, and his girlfriend Glorianmarie Quinones-Montes, 22, to murder a woman who was in a relationship with a man that Lopez-Ramos was in love with, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The murder was planned and executed between Jan. 7 and “the early morning hours of the 8th.”

According to police, the suspects were able to track the woman to a store at a shopping center in Osceola County. However, once there, the suspects mistakenly identified Janice Zengotita-Torres, 42, as the “intended target when she left the store.”

PEOPLE’s request for additional comment from the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office was not immediately returned.

Not realizing their mistake, “the suspects followed the victim to her apartment and in the parking lot they forcibly put the victim into the back of her own vehicle and they drove away,” Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson explained.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

The suspects then allegedly drove to a nearby bank where they obtained Zengotita-Torres’ ATM card and pin code.

After Lopez-Ramos allegedly “withdrew money from the victim’s account,” the suspects drove back to the victim’s apartment in Orlando. While Quinones-Montes went into the victim’s apartment, Lopez-Ramos and Ramos-Rivera “realized that they had mistakingly taken the wrong person.”

“However, the suspects continued with their plan of murder and allegedly tied the victim with zip ties and then her head in duct tape and garbage bags,” Gibson continued.

After Ramos-Rivera allegedly “began beating the victim until she was unconscious,” the three suspects drove the victim’s vehicle to Ormond Beach, where they dumped her body. They then allegedly drove back to Orlando before leaving the victim’s vehicle in Orange County.

According to police, the victim died “from suffocation.”

Police said Zengotita-Torres’ husband contacted the sheriff’s office on the morning of Jan. 8 to report her missing.

The body of a woman found at Ormond Beach on Jan. 8 was “positively identified as Janice Zengotita-Torres” two days later, police said.

• For more compelling true crime coverage, follow our Crime magazine on Flipboard.

Police said the first suspect they apprehended was Lopez-Ramos, who was caught “while she was attempting to use the ATM card of the victim.” After she was brought back to the sheriff’s office, Lopez-Ramos gave “a full confession” and named the two other suspects.

After the police apprehended Ramos-Rivera and Quinones-Montes, they also gave full confessions.

According to police, “all three confirmed that this was a murder-for-hire and the victim was mistakingly targeted and murdered.”

“I get emotional because it touches me so deeply that one of our citizens was killed in such a manner over a mistaken identification and in the end it appears to be a lover’s triangle,” Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson continued at the press conference held on Friday.

According to online jail records, Lopez-Ramos, Ramos-Rivera and Quinones-Montes are currently housed in Osceola County Jail and face charges of premeditated first-degree murder. No attorneys are listed for all three suspects.

EXCLUSIVE: Simon Spurr Unveils His First Collection for Eidos

MILAN — “Making the brand younger, clean, more modern and elevated, slighter closer to the Isaia brand but distinctively different” is the mission that Simon Spurr said he embraced when, in November, he joined Eidos, the Isaia company’s advanced contemporary firm.
The New York-based, British designer — who has worked in the men’s wear departments of labels including Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren before launching his namesake brand — presented his first Eidos collection exclusively to WWD in the new Isaia headquarters here.
In order to attract “more fashion costumers” but at the same time target a broad audience in terms of age, Spurr designed a versatile collection that, unlike the quintessentially Italian Isaia tailored line, is rooted in an international aesthetic.
In keeping with the British designer’s signature style, the lineup is focused on clean, lean silhouettes infused with a touch of “romanticism and sensitivity,” explained Spurr, who also highlighted the “wearability” of the collection.

EXCLUSIVE: Maison Margiela to Present First Men’s Collection Under John Galliano

MAN UP: With Paris Men’s Fashion Week set to kick off Tuesday, management at Maison Margiela has confirmed that the house on Friday will present the first men’s collection entirely created and developed under the direction of John Galliano.
The show will take place in the Salle Turenne of the Musée de l’Armée in the Hôtel des Invalides, a complex of buildings in the city’s 7th arrondissement containing museums and monuments relating to the military history of France.
Since joining the OTB-owned house in October 2014, Galliano has had no official involvement in the men’s collection, according to Riccardo Bellini, the house’s chief executive officer. It’s been a step-by-step process for the designer.
“Creating a new aesthetic language rooted in the maison’s couture spirit has always been at the core of Mr. Galliano’s creative vision for the future of the house. Rather than curating the past we have chosen to look at the future and John Galliano’s vision represents a forward-thinking view on the maison and its DNA,” he said. “This collection will offer an elevated and powerful new foundation for men’s wear, strongly positioned within the luxury arena.”
For men’s, the brand counts about 60 direct stores and around 400 multibrand and department stores worldwide.

RHONY Star Jill Zarin’s Husband Bobby Dies After Battle with Cancer

Jill Zarin‘s husband Bobby has died from cancer.

Jill announced the news in a family statement on her official website, revealing that Bobby died on Saturday surrounded by his family.

“With the heaviest of hearts, we are devastated to share the news that our beloved Bobby Zarin passed away peacefully today surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer,” the family said in a statement. “There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are. Thank you, everyone for all your love, and support during this difficult time.”

His stepdaughter Aly Shapiro remembered him in a touching Instagram post also on Saturday, sharing a gallery of photos of the two over the years.

“We ❤ Bobby…” she wrote. “Thank you for giving me such a wonderful family and being the most incredible step-Dad anyone could ever ask for. I don’t remember a time without you, and you will not be forgotten. Every shot of patron, every time we listen to Hotel California, every vroom of a Ferrari you will be right there with us. You fought with dignity and courage, surrounded by all of us with love and respect till the very end. You can rest In peace now, we love you so much.”

She also provided service details, which will be held Monday, Jan. 15 at 10 a.m. at Riverside Memorial in New York City.

Bobby was first diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2009 and went on to have his thyroid removed as well as underwent radioactive iodine treatment.

“The radioactive iodine usually kills off whatever undetectable cancer cells are left in your body after surgery,” he previously told PEOPLE. “We thought it was cured – and it usually is in about 93 percent of cases. But I wasn’t able to absorb the radioactive iodine. So it came back.”

The cancer wound up returning and spread to his lungs. In Fall 2016, Jill revealed to PEOPLE that he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent Gamma Knife Radiosurgery at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

Although the Real Housewives of New York City alum remained hopeful throughout Bobby’s treatment, she said “his cancer took an unexpected turn” over the summer. In July, Bobby was admitted to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, where he recovered from a procedure.

“He is not going down without a fight,” Jill told PEOPLE exclusively. “We’re hoping for a miracle,” she said about the love of her life.

RELATED VIDEO: Jill Zarin’s Husband Bobby Hospitalized with Cancer Complications

After he was admitted to the hospital in July, Jill hadn’t left his side and did everything she could to make him comfortable.

“I’m in shock,” she said. “I’m in physical shock. I’ve lost 8 lbs. already. He was doing well for a very, very long time. Then the cancer came back in his brain last fall and since then, it’s been one thing after another.”

As Bobby’s treatment continued, Jill remained dedicated to raising money for thyroid cancer research for him and others who have the deadly disease through her Annual Luxury Luncheon, which was opened to the public for the first time last year.

Last January, the couple celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary. “Happy 16th wedding Anniversary to the most wonderful husband, father and friend in the world. I love you with all my ❤❤❤ we will get thru this and be together forever,” Jill wrote about her husband. 

And in celebration of his birthday last February, Jill posted multiple photos of Bobby on Instagram with loving captions. “I’m so happy and at peace these days with the love of my life living La Vida Boca!” she wrote.

“He is the most loving and caring person I have ever known besides my father. Sometimes life just isn’t fair,” she previously told PEOPLE about Bobby. “But we have such a great love story. He is the love of my life and I will do everything in my power to heal and care for him.”

Bobby ran Zarin Fabrics, which was opened by his father, Harry Zarin, in 1936. The New York native is survived by Jill, his three children — Jonathan, David and Jennifer Zarin — and stepdaughter, Ally.

While a stunt biker performed in the background, Burlon’s models wore trucker jackets, sweatshirts, cropped bombers and jogging pants with details and shapes from the sport.  For fall, the designer continued to build the brand on these pillar elements but the collection also had a dark edge, with a dash of Dario Argento inspiration and tarot-card iconography: Images of a pink elephant with a red hat or an octopus under a UFO embellished a beautiful shearling jacket; puffer jackets with poison flies, as well as a skull with a rose or the now-staple Gothic graphics adorned his hoodies. Agonism and mystery were juxtaposed. Cupido, or Cupid, the god of desire and love, was also a recurring theme. One female model wore it drawn over a heart on a T-shirt, with a Mets bomber jacket and shredded denim shorts. Men donned oversized buffalo checked jackets, open over a T-shirt and worn over sports pants. Burlon delivered what his customers want – and then some.

EXCLUSIVE: Model Christopher Cates Pens Letter Calling for Action Against Harassment

As the uproar continues over sexual harassment in industries stretching from entertainment to media to finance, the fashion world has remained relatively on the sidelines – until now.
On Saturday, The New York Times published a long-rumored story about alleged harassment of male models by the photographers Bruce Weber and Mario Testino. Both men, via statements their lawyers gave to the Times, vigorously denied the allegations made in the story, although Conde Nast and Conde Nast International both said Saturday that they would be severing ties with the two photographers – at least for now.
The Times’ story comes several months after model Cameron Russell created an Instagram account on which anonymous individuals posted stories about their mistreatment in the industry. Last October, Terry Richardson was dropped by the leading fashion magazine publishers but only after years of allegations surrounding his behavior, while model Jason Boyce filed a lawsuit against Weber in December claiming the photographer harassed him. Weber has denied those claims, as well.
In November, 27-year-old British model Edie Campbell penned an exclusive letter for WWD to the fashion industry in which she said, “We operate within a culture that is too accepting of abuse, in all of its manifestations,” going

Why Steven Spielberg Rushed to Make The Post in 43 Days in Trump Era: ‘I Believe Truth Tellers Are Heroes’

When Steven Spielberg signed on to direct The Post in March, he planned to kick off production in May and have the retelling of the Washington Post‘s 1971 decision to publish the Pentagon Papers ready in time for a December release.

“We wanted to tell a true story about a time when an administration attempted through the courts to squash the free press, and at the pleasure of the Nixon administration, stopped facts and the truth from being disseminated to the American people to the world,” Spielberg, 71, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue.

The three-time Oscar winner sees the “scary parallels” between the 1970s events and today’s White House, which has repeatedly attacked the press, deemed outlets and stories “fake news” and endorsed “alternative facts.”

For more about Steven Spielberg and The Post pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now.

“The relevance of this story is obvious,” he says. “But our movie shows that sometimes hardship is really the rehearsal for the big show, meaning the Pentagon Papers turned into the Watergate investigation. And yet we survived. If we remember that we are all patriots instead of partisan, we will eventually all come out the other side of this.”

RELATED VIDEO: Donald Trump Calls SNL Portrayal A “Hit Job”

The Post’s Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep) and Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) serve as early examples of Americans who risked serious government retaliation (the New York Times had received an injunction from the Nixon administration against printing more of the then-classified Pentagon Papers) in order to give the public the information they thought it deserved.

“Both Kay Graham and Ben Bradlee were patriots because they put their country and the truth first at great personal and professional risks,” Spielberg explains. “I really believe that this day in age, truth tellers are heroes. And look in today’s world where some would have us believe there is no difference between beliefs and facts, I think Kay Graham’s action reminds us the facts are the foundation of truth. That’s sort of why I made the movie.”

As the Me Too movement continues to gain support, Graham — the Washington Post‘s first female publisher and the first Fortune 500 CEO — also offers a look at a woman who triumphed against the odds. “There were a bunch of glass ceilings that have been broken ever since our country was founded,” Spielberg says. “But one of the most significant glass ceilings is what Katharine Graham had to smash through.”

And he insists, “Had this movie been made during the Obama administration or had it been made during the Bush administration or the Clinton administration, I think Katharine Graham would’ve still taken on hero status.”

The Post is in theaters now.

Canali Family Hires Designer, Stands by Namesake Company

MILAN — The Canali family is standing behind their 84-year-old namesake men’s wear company.
With a view to further expanding its collections, from formal to sportier looks and accessories, Canali has tapped Hyun-Wook Lee as its exclusive in-house designer.
“This is a very important step for us as it’s the first time we single out one designer to oversee all categories, and evolve the offer,” general manager Stefano Canali said Friday at the company’s showroom in Milan, ahead of the brand’s presentation on Saturday. Given Lee’s recent arrival at the company, his first collection for Canali will bow during Milan Men’s Fashion Week in June.
Born in Seoul in 1973, Lee comes to Canali with 17 years of experience in fashion, having worked at Berluti in Paris and contributed to its foray into men’s apparel. He previously worked at Ermenegildo Zegna, Versace and Gianfranco Ferré. Lee graduated in design and fine arts from the University of Chung-Ang in Seoul and has a background in art. He has created sculptures in wood and metal, designed jewelry and painted fabrics. In 2000, he specialized in fashion design at Milan’s Istituto Marangoni.

Boucheron Opens Vendôrama Show With Evening Event

MINGLING AT THE MINT: Guests at Boucheron’s interactive Vendôrama anniversary exhibit began their journey at the back door of the 18th-century Hôtel de la Monnaie. Who would guess that it would open on to a graffitied tunnel?
The uninitiated might be forgiven for missing the references in the tags: 1858 — that would be the year the house founder Frédéric Boucheron opened his first store — and Quatre for the jewelry line launched in 2004.
Inside a temporary exhibit space sitting in the courtyard, visitors were served up a mix of screens, live actors, and jewelry displays, set amidst rich green foliage including ivy — a traditional inspiration for the house. Even the guidebook was interactive, with pages folding out to reveal details of the jewelry on display.
“There’s a rock ‘n roll feel to it that I like,” said Charlotte Rampling, noting the unexpected presentation style, as the lighting on a collection of Quatre rings suddenly switched off behind her, making them disappear for a spell.
On one wall, guests could snap metal beads onto a giant replica of the asymmetrical Question Mark necklace—and have their photo taken there — while a display of Serpent Bohème necklaces jutted out of a tall, red lacquered

IMG Releases NYFW: The Shows Roster

IMG has released its preliminary February 2018 schedule for New York Fashion Week: The Shows, taking place Feb. 8-14 at Spring Studios, with additional shows at Industria and elsewhere.
For the first time, Spring will serve as the centralized hub for NYFW: The Shows-related activity, including runway shows and presentations. Several of the IMG-affiliated designers are showing in offsite locations.
Separately, designers who aren’t showing as part of NYFW: The Shows, such as Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang, Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang, continue to show in venues all over the city.
Last season, the main location for NYFW: The Shows was Skylight Clarkson Sq, after Skylight at Moynihan Station was no longer available. Those two venues had been the main venues since fall 2015. The spaces at Spring Studios include Gallery 1, which can seat 650 people and Gallery II, which seats 400 people.  Some 64 designers are presently on the NYFW: The Shows roster.
NYFW: The Shows, which is showing at Spring, Industria and off-site, will feature the collections of designers including:

Marco de Vincenzo Pre-Fall 2018

During a walkthrough at his Milanese showroom, Marco de Vincenzo said that the main goal for pre-fall was to try to find a balance between the necessity to continue developing a signature look and the market’s request for exceptional, standalone pieces.
The mission was actually accomplished. The brand’s signature optical effects, which highlight the designer’s color sense, were rendered through a new botanical print splashed on a pleated midi skirt worn with a Lurex turtleneck. A rainbow palette also gave a charming appeal to a sensual plissé shimmering slip style.
A tonal approach was used for the striped ribbed sweaters and for the silk maxi buttons punctuating the slightly oversized tuxedos, while crystal chains added some sparkle to the tartan pleated skirts.
From the classic tailored coats, revealing silk inserts at the shoulders, to the Lurex tromp-l’oeil frocks, everything was injected with de Vincenzo’s recognizable touch.

A Group of Refugees Are Bringing a Tapestry of Culinary Delights to New Yorkers: ‘This Is a Way to Connect’

A company based in New York City is recruiting a group of refugees from around the world to help bring their own culinary delights to the Big Apple and beyond.

When Lebanon native Manal Kahi joined her brother, Wissam Kahi, in New York City in 2013 to earn her master’s degree at Columbia University, she soon found herself missing her grandmother’s hummus. Store-bought American hummus couldn’t hold a candle to the homemade stuff from home, so to quell her homesickness, Manal pulled out her grandmother’s recipe and began making it herself.

“I had high standards when it comes to hummus, and I was a bit disappointed with the variety that I found here in grocery stores, I practically called up my grandmother and asked her how to make her hummus,” Manal, 32, tells PEOPLE. “I started making that recipe at home. And everyone around me started raving about it!”

Manal saw that there was a market for this homemade brand of hummus amongst her friends, and it gave her an idea that she mentioned to her brother—they should find a way to sell it.

As the siblings started to think about the idea in 2013, there was a refugee crisis occurring in Lebanon. A quarter of the country’s population was made up of Syrian refugees, totaling some 1.3 million people in a country of just over 4 million.

“You can only imagine the type of issues and hostility that these refugees were facing, amongst many other issues,” Manal says. “There was a little bit of guilt that we felt by not being able to do anything about it. But then there was this opportunity to do something here in the United States.”

The siblings realized that the people who could make hummus that tasted like the one from home were people who had actually come from home.

“That was really it,” Manal says. “We wanted to bring great hummus made by Syrian refugees here.”

With that inspiration, Manal and Wissam, 43, founded Eat Offbeat, a catering company that provides culinary jobs to refugees from Africa, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Nepal and around the world. The company is for-profit, meaning employees pay taxes and “bring something of value to the local economy,” the siblings explain. These refugees-turned-chefs are also introducing New Yorkers to foods they might not easily find, even in such an expansive city.

“We knew there were so many other dishes that, just like hummus, were so much better when they were homemade, when they were made based on a grandmother’s recipe versus an industrial recipe,” Manal says.

Eat Offbeat operated out of spaces provided by WeWork—a company that provides shared office space for startups and entrepreneurs. With the help of the International Rescue Committee—who helps the company identify home cooks who want to be in the food industry—Eat Offbeat has hired about 30 people, with chefs stemming from about 17 different countries. Once a chef is brought on, they have complete freedom to do any dish they choose, and in this freedom, they help to expose new sets of people to dishes from their home countries with a dash of their own spin on it.

“The reaction has been overwhelmingly positive so far. Most of our customers actually come to us, so they hear about either through the media or someone recommends us,” Manal says. “Usually, they come to us because of the mission. They are intrigued by what we do or by the entire story.”

Eat Offbeat is up for a $ 1 million grand prize at WeWork’s Creator Awards Global Finals on Jan. 17. “The Creator Awards is a global initiative that recognizes and rewards companies and individuals across all industries and stages of growth,” Adam Neumann, co-founder and CEO of WeWork, tells PEOPLE. “From Austin to Berlin to Tel Aviv, over 10,000 people attended seven events around the world and WeWork helped support over 150 entrepreneurs making a difference in their communities.”

If they win, Manal says they would use the money to move their kitchen in Long Island City to a storefront in another part of the city so their chefs are more accessible to the public.

“Now, the challenge is to bring it beyond New York, and maybe, even to other countries,” Manal explains. “It’s going to help us invest a little more in tech and make sure we turn into a company that sustains itself even better… and find a new home and keep growing.”

Expanding the business and continuing their mission to give jobs to refugees will hopefully show the country, and the world, the value of displaced peoples.

“This is a way to give people an insight into the culture and the families, and really to connect with people,” Manal says. “Not to necessarily learn about that country and that culture through the eyes of that person, but through their hands and the dish of that person.”

The Pulse of Men’s Industry Strong at Pitti Uomo

FLORENCE — The energy at the Pitti Uomo show was electric as the industry continued to bask in a solid end to 2017 and was eagerly anticipating further gains this year.
But at the same time, some familiar faces were either late in arriving at the show or dressed in some new duds, since many attendees who started their international journey at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport arrived in Florence without their luggage. The so-called “bombogenesis” snowstorm on Jan. 4 resulted in thousands of canceled flights and even more lost bags, many of which were still sitting on a runway at the airport this week.
But while they may have had to snip the price tags off their spanking new outfits, Pitti attendees made the best of the situation — and helped the local retail economy at the same time before turning to the business at hand, which was to peruse the typical wide variety of fall merchandise ranging from accessories and footwear to luxury sportswear.
Roopal Patel, senior vice president of fashion director for Saks Fifth Avenue, said she was “very energized” by her first visit to Pitti Uomo. “I feel like this is the nucleus of men’s wear on a

Marchesa Unveils First Collection Since Harvey Weinstein Scandal

Will Marchesa survive?
That is just one of many interwoven sidebars to the huge, ongoing story of how the exposure of widespread workplace-related sexual misconduct will change the culture.
In the big picture a small sidebar, yet one of major significance to Marchesa principals Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig. As everyone knows, Chapman is the soon-to-be ex-wife of Harvey Weinstein, whose then-incredible Hollywood clout helped launch the brand and catapult it to red-carpet prominence.
Whether the company will ultimately survive the horror of Weinstein’s transgressions remains to be seen. In October, shortly after the news broke, WWD posed the question to a number of retailers. While several bridal stores expressed support for the brand and its principals, among major retailers, only Bergdorf Goodman’s Linda Fargo would go on the record. She noted that Bergdorf’s was the first store to commit to the brand in 2004, and that “We have been avid supporters of Georgina and Keren’s work ever since and hope to continue supporting the brand in the future.” Also in October, Berkshire Hathaway-owned Helzberg Diamonds put on hold the launch of a collection of Marchesa engagement rings.
Since then, there’s been little concrete news to report on Marchesa until now. With the pre-fall season 2018 season winding down,

Dior Pre-Fall 2018

Gender differences are so last century.
Maria Grazia Chiuri, who keeps close tabs on Millennial attitudes through her daughter and muse Rachele Regini, has been touting a feminist agenda since taking over design duties at Dior in 2016 — all the while, paying homage to highly specific facets of the French fashion house’s 70-year heritage.
In her pre-fall collection, she found a point of convergence between the two. The lineup, which mixed graphic men’s tailoring with her signature diaphanous evening gowns, was inspired by Surrealist artist Claude Cahun, best known for her photographic self-portraits in which she adopted a variety of guises.
Chiuri decided to explore this period after seeing the Dior retrospective at Les Arts Décoratifs, which wrapped last week after a record-breaking run. It included a room devoted to the couturier’s early career as a gallerist, and his friendships with Surrealists including Jean Cocteau and André Breton.
With her gender-ambiguous pseudonym and fondness for role-playing, Cahun makes an ideal muse for a generation craving new ways of defining themselves.
“At that time, in Paris, the modern woman was born,” said Chiuri, pointing at a mood board filled with images of the shaven-headed artist. “In a way, it’s very close to the idea that

Leandro Erlich Troubles the Senses With Le Bon Marché Exhibit

NOW YOU SEE IT: Le Bon Marché is tying itself in knots over its new art exhibition.
The Paris department store has invited Leandro Erlich, the Argentine artist famed for employing optical illusions in his work, to create several installations, the most striking of which makes its famed escalator look as twisted as a pretzel.
Erlich has paid homage to the City of Light’s changing skies by filling its windows with wispy cloudlike shapes. Surreal cloud formations will be projected on a giant screen erected under the store’s glass roof. Meanwhile, a bank of fake elevators promises to further scramble visitors’ perception.
“I am mainly interested in transforming elements that you believe can’t be transformed, can’t be different. It’s about the utopia of presenting the possibility of transforming what exists into something else, and this action invites us to imagine reality in a different way,” the artist told WWD.

Leandro Erlich’s installation at Le Bon Marché.

The site-specific installation was inspired by the “iconic” quality of the central escalator, designed by Andrée Putman in 1990, which Erlich – who used to live in Paris – considers as recognizable as the Eiffel Tower, albeit on a smaller scale.

Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Drops ‘Dixie’ From Name, Citing ‘Changing Attitudes’

Dolly Parton‘s dinner show attractions are getting a name makeover.

Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede — which currently has performances in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and Branson, Missouri — are dropping the “Dixie” from their brand name to avoid negative connotations with the antebellum South ahead of the 2018 season. “Dixie” is a nickname for the 11 Confederate states that seceded from the country during the Civil War era.

“Our shows currently are identified by where they are located,” the country singer said in a statement through World Choice Investments, LLC, the attraction’s parent company. “Some examples are Smoky Mountain Adventures or Dixie Stampede. We also recognize that attitudes change and feel that by streamlining the names of our shows, it will remove any confusion or concerns about our shows and will help our efforts to expand into new cities.”

The show’s official website and sign on the Knoxville location have already been changed to reflect the new name, Dolly Parton’s Stampede.

An August 2017 Slate article criticized the performance as “a lily-white kitsch extravaganza that play-acts the Civil War but never once mentions slavery.” However, some say the change was a bend to political correctness.

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett told Knox News, “Well, like everybody else, I love Dolly, and I love all that she’s done for our community, which is her community, and I’m disappointed that they’re yielding to political correctness. What’s next? Are we going to change the name of Dixie cups and the Dixie sugar company? You know, I just hope they don’t change their Christmas program.”

Another added, “Are y’all taking the nativity out of the show too? Screw all of you that had a part to play in changing the name and removing.”

Street Style Photographers at Pitti Uomo

Name: Scott Schuman
Magazines/web sites you shoot for: The Sartorialist @thesartorialist
What you like about Pitti: It’s a meeting place for some of the best-dressed men, from all around the world. It encompasses a broad range of styles and celebrates everything from streetwear to tailoring at its best.
What you don’t want to see anymore at Pitti: Poorly executed dandyism. To be a dandy can be a beautiful style when done with the right attitude but it’s much trickier than it seems. Because of its loudness, its mistakes attract the eye like a roadside accident.
Favorite street style moment at Pitti: I love shooting the January edition of Pitti Uomo, because the low sun makes perfect light for shooting all day.
 Your favorite street style icons: What draws me to Pitti every year is the new crop of gentleman that inspire me. But I am also very proud that I discovered some of today’s street style stars like Alessandro Squarzi, Domenico Gianfrate, Lino Ieluzzi.
What you expect to trend at Pitti this January in terms of street style: I never look for trends; I’m looking to create images that inspire.

Brooke Shields to Develop Apparel and Accessories Collection for QVC

BROOKE’S TAKE ON FASHION: Brooke Shields has created an apparel and accessories line exclusively for QVC called Brooke Shields Timeless. The contemporary collection will be unveiled on Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. EST with the full collection launching March 14 at 11 p.m. EST.
The 52-year-old actress and model has been closely associated with the fashion industry throughout her career, having modeled for Calvin Klein Jeans as a 15-year-old. More recently, Raf Simons, chief creative officer of Calvin Klein Inc., etched Shields’ image onto its jeans, and Shields modeled Calvin Klein Underwear in a sexy cover photo shoot for Social Life Magazine’s July 4 issue. Having acted both on stage and TV, written several books and developed an Icon collection for MAC, Shields currently appears in a major recurring role in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
This is her first apparel collection.
“After years of being dressed by professionals, I walked into my closet one day and realized I had lost sight of my own personal style,” said Shields. “I am incredibly passionate about this collection because I have created pieces that are not only chic, but that take the guesswork out of getting ready each morning. I can’t wait to share

Les Benjamins Men’s Fall 2018

The antique atmosphere of Florence’s Teatro Niccolini, the city’s oldest theater, created an interesting clash with the contemporary, quintessentially metropolitan look of Bunyamin Aydin’s fall collection. The Turkish designer mainly focused on a signature silhouette, combining cropped, straight pants with layered, more voluminous tops. These included oversize printed hoodies, featuring images inspired by antique monuments, such as the Egyptian pyramids, as well as quilted bombers, leather jackets, parkas and a range of anorak styles worked in velvet and fleece.
The brand also unveiled several women’s looks. While some of them were linked to the men’s lineup showing skinny pants, T-shirts and hoodies, others were infused with a clearly feminine attitude, such as tulle skirts, Eastern-inspired silk tunics with cutout details at the sleeves and sequined robe coats.

Victoria Beckham Gears Up for 10-Year Anniversary, Plans London Show

LONDON — Victoria Beckham plans to mark her decade in business with a series of events, including a 10th anniversary fashion show during London Fashion Week in September.
The big year will start with a change to the way Beckham shows her collections. The company said fall will be showcased via “intimate presentations” at the James Burden Mansion on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, recalling the early appointments Beckham held in New York for the then-fledgling business.
The show will take place during London Fashion Week in September, which runs from the 14th to the 18th of the month. The company said it plans to mark the anniversary with other initiatives throughout the year, including special pieces and activations.
The 10-year anniversary comes just months after Victoria Beckham Ltd. brought in NEO Investment Partners, a private investment firm based in London, as a new shareholder.
The 30 million pound investment from NEO has been earmarked to enhance the brand’s digital and physical retail presence, drive growth in core categories and launch into new categories and collaborations. The company also plans to move to new west London premises in the spring.
The brand produces the main line Victoria Beckham, a sister line called Victoria Victoria Beckham, accessories, footwear

Get Out Studio Producing Horror Anthology Series for Hulu

Hulu and Blumhouse, the studio behind Get Out, Split, and The Purge, are partnering for a monthly horror anthology series, with the first episode expected to be released in October.

The 12-episode Hulu original will air over the course of a year, with a new episode premiering each month. While each installment in the currently untitled series will have a self-contained story, “some narrative device or structural device is expected to connect them,” according to Variety.

“At the heart of the deal is an extremely passionate audience and an extremely activateable audience in terms of horror,” said Hulu Chief Content Officer Joel Stillerman. “It’s not even the larger bucket of ‘genre.’ I would say this falls squarely into the horror bucket.”

PEOPLE Explains: Texas Mom Murdered Husband and 2 Sons Before Killing Herself at Luxury Resort

On Monday morning, an unthinkable crime occurred in Galveston, Texas.

According to police, a 37-year-old mother fatally shot her husband and their two sons before killing herself. The violence transpired inside a room at the San Luis Hotel on Galveston Island — an upscale spa and resort on the sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

The tragedy remains under investigation, as many unanswered questions remain. Here are five things you need to know about the case.

1. The Family Checked Into the Resort Hours Before the Killings

The suspected killer, Flor De Maria Pineda Canas, along with her 39-year-old husband, Mauricio Canas, and their two boys, 10-year-old Mauricio Jr. and 5-year-old David, had checked into the San Luis Hotel mere hours before other guests called 911 after hearing a quick succession of gunshots, according to a statement from the Galveston Police Department.

Responding officers arrived and were directed to the eighth floor. They found the room’s door dead-bolted, and could could hear “faint moaning coming from inside the suspected room and began to make entry,” the statement explains.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

After breaching the room, police found the husband and two boys “lying in bed, all with gunshot wounds.” Investigators believe they were killed as they slept, and that moments later, Flor took her own life. Police found a handgun next to her lifeless body.

2. The Killer Was Religious, May Have Suffered From Depression

Those who knew her claim that Flor Canas was earnestly religious and had been a member of Iglesia Cristo Viene in their hometown of Baytown, Texas, for more than seven years. The family, ABC 13 reports, attended mass together the Sunday morning before their deaths.

Most of the members are in shock because this is a person that was always looking for ways to help the community,” Leonila Olivares, an ordained minister, told ABC 13. “She had a servant heart.”

Talk amongst the congregation, Olivares explained, is that Flor was not suffering from emotional distress. “They’re thinking that it was because of her depression,” she said.

3. One Boy in Kindergarten, the Other in 5th Grade

According to reports, the two boys were both students at the Victoria Walker Elementary School in Baytown, a suburb of Houston. Mauricio Jr. was in the fifth grade, and David was in kindergarten.

A spokeswoman for the school, Beth Dombrowa, issued a statement to the Houston Chronicle on Monday.

“The tragic circumstances surrounding these students’ deaths are almost too much to bear,” it reads. “A student death can have a ripple effect on a school community and, because of this and out of concern for the students’ classmates and the campus faculty, we will have additional counseling services at the school. We are grieving for the loss of young life and its infinite possibilities and we pray for the family, friends and students most affected by this tragedy.”

4. Motive For The Killings Still Unclear

Detectives still do not know what drove Canas to kill her family at around 4:30 a.m., but they’re positive she was the killer.

“Forensic data collected at the scene indicates that the female is believed to be the shooter at this time, and is believed to have killed her two children and her husband before apparently taking her own life with a 9mm handgun found adjacent to her body,” the statement from Galveston Police explains.

• For more compelling true crime coverage, follow our Crime magazine on Flipboard.

Canas and one of her children “were unresponsive but still appeared to be alive” when officers arrived. All four were transported to a nearby hospital where they were pronounced dead.

5. Murder-Suicide Was Second Fatal Shooting Incident at Resort in Recent Months

Back in April, a security guard working at the San Luis Hotel was shot to death.

Phillip Molis, 23, was in the resort’s rear parking lot on April 9 when he noticed three suspicious men. According to ABC 13, Molis approached the men, who opened fire, hitting him several times.

Molis underwent complicated surgeries, but died a week later from his wounds, the station reports. Brandon Ledford, 19, has been charged with his murder and was detained in October.

Ledford has not entered a plea to the charge against him, and remains in police custody without bail. Information about whether he has retained an attorney was not immediately available.

The Soloist Eschews Streetwear Label

Takahiro Miyashita doesn’t like labels.
While his collections for TakahiroMiyashita The Soloist have often been called streetwear, Miyashita is not a fan of this nomenclature.
“I don’t think of what I do as a street brand. I think of it as clothes,” he said. “I don’t want to be labeled as any particular category. I don’t say those things myself and I don’t really like it when other people say them about me either.”
Statements like these hint at Miyashita’s self-confidence, which shines through despite a very shy and humble demeanor. Soft spoken and pensive, he rarely makes eye contact from behind his tinted lenses and he chooses his words carefully before speaking.
With no formal fashion training, Miyashita could easily have been at a disadvantage when he launched his first line, Number (N)ine, in 1996. Yet he received wide critical acclaim when he began showing in Paris in 2003, and his current brand, started in 2010, has generated just as much buzz, if not more. He says one advantage to his not attending fashion school is that he can sometimes see things in a way that other trained designers cannot.

The designer also worked statement details into the simplest styles, giving them a glamorous edge: Fat round rings for the belt of a lightweight trench; slashes at the sides and elbows of a long wool dress; long, swooshing fringes on the bottom of a dark chenille velvet dress and white cotton poplin shirts with collars in the shape of lightning bolts.

Shepard Fairey’s Obey Label Joins Forces With Wildfang to Create the Rise + Riot Capsule Collection

RISING TIDES: Not about to be left behind during this time of great resistance, Obey, an art-infused socially conscious brand, has joined forces with the feminist label Wildfang to create a capsule collection.
The Rise + Riot collection is geared for those who want to fight the system and band together against oppression. In one of the more unexpected descriptions of a collaboration, the line was made as a sign of togetherness and getting angry. Apparently such ire can be found in three graphic T-shirts – cropped, long-sleeved and oversized; a hooded coat; trousers, and a “Dad” hat. Designed to speak for themselves, the garments are imprinted with such self-explanatory hand gestures as shaka, the peace sign, a middle finger, a heart shape and fist. The line launches on Wildfang’s site today and Obey’s on Jan. 15. Obey’s Instagram-driven sales account for 10 percent of the brand’s business.
This marks the first time Obey has collaborated with a women’s brand and executives sought out one with an authentic voice. The timing of the launch was scheduled to coincide with the first anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration and the Women’s March. Wild Fang’s creative director Taralyn Thuot said, “We wanted to represent the

Who Is Brad Falchuk? 5 Things to Know About Gwyneth Paltrow’s Fiancé

With Gwyneth Paltrow confirming that she’s engaged to Brad Falchuk after three years of dating, many are curious to know more about the 46-year-old writer-producer.

The couple went public with their romance in April 2015 at Robert Downey Jr.’s 50th birthday bash, after a year of flying under the radar with their relationship. And they’ve been equally shy about their engagement: ET reported that Falchuk popped the question a year ago.

A rep for Paltrow has not commented yet, but a source close to the actress previously told PEOPLE, “She’s crazy about Brad.” Though the source said that she’s “cautious about marriage” and “very happy with how things are,” it wasn’t “out of the question” for the couple to walk down the aisle in the future.

Here are 5 things to know about Falchuk.

1. He’s worked with Ryan Murphy for years 

Falchuk began his television career as a writer, working on a few short-lived series before joining the season 1 writing staff of Murphy’s FX series Nip/Tuck in 2003. From there, the two formed a strong bond — teaming up to create Glee (2009), Scream Queens (2015) and the upcoming Connie Britton/Angela Bassett-led 9-1-1 for Fox, as well as the horror anthology series American Horror Story (2011) for FX. He and Murphy also serve as executive producers on the true crime anthology series FX’s American Crime Story, which premiered in 2016 with a season devoted to the O.J. Simpson trial and will open 2018 with a season devoted to the Gianni Versace murder.

2. He met Paltrow on the set of Glee

It was on Glee where Falchuk and Paltrow would meet, as she joined the show in 2010 for a season 2 guest spot to play lackadaisical substitute teacher Holly Holliday. The appearance went so well that Paltrow would reprise her role as Holliday three more times, including the show’s 100th episode in 2014. All in all, she cover 10 tracks on the show — from Joan Jett’s “Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah)” and Prince’s “Kiss” to Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” and her most popular cover, Cee-Lo Green’s “Forget You,” which she later performed life with Green in the 2011 Grammy Awards.

3. He’s a father of two 

Falchuk has two children, Brody and Isabella, from his 10-year marriage to Suzanne Bukinik, which ended in a divorce filing in March 2013. He often shares photos of the two on social media — and has taken Isabella with him as his date to the Emmys in the past.

So far there haven’t been any shots of Brody and Isabella with Paltrow’s two kids with the rocker — daughter Apple, 13, and son Moses, 11 — whom she shares with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

4. He gushes about Paltrow on Instagram

Speaking of sharing about loved ones on social media, Falchuk sure hasn’t shied away from expressing his love for Paltrow on Instagram.

“This is the most beautiful woman of all time and today is her birthday,” he wrote in September on Paltrow’s 44th birthday, captioning a photo of her eating pizza, drinking red wine and flashing what he described as “that f—— perfect smile.”  He continued: “We are all so lucky that she came into the world (but no one is luckier than me). Happy Birthday, Love.”

Other photos of Paltrow on his site come from his “getting ready” series, which often features Paltrow in various stages of preparation. “#LegsForDays” Falchuk hashtagged one shot of his fiancée.

5. He’s priming a groundbreaking new television project

Falchuk’s newest project, the pilot of which is currently filming in New York City, is the upcoming FX show Pose. Set in the Big Apple in the ’80s, the show focuses on a “the collusion of various worlds including the elite rich and the downtown ball culture,” according to Entertainment Weekly.

That’s not what makes it unique, of course. No, Pose will break through as the show with the most transgender series regulars of any show in American television history. A first look image of trans cast members Hailie Sahar, Indya Moore, Dominique Jackson, Angelica Ross, and M.J. Rodriguez dropped earlier this month.

Pose also features Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek, and Tatiana Maslany in major roles. Tony Award winner Billy Porter (Kinky Boots) is also set to appear.

Retailers Seek Best-in-Class Brands at Pitti Uomo

What specifically are you looking for at Pitti?
Literally everything. Absolutely anything can catch my eye if it is well conceived and crafted, unique in presentation, best of class and, therefore, perfect for our very discerning customer. The great thing about Pitti Uomo is that there is such a vast variety of compelling clothing, sportswear, accessories, leather goods, knitwear that it is incredibly inspiring season after season.

I always love to see the Brunello Cucinelli collection. It’s beautifully presented and merchandised and walk-throughs with the team — always impeccably turned out in the new collection — and Mr. Cucinelli are inspiring and thoughtful. The Classico Italia section is always compelling and filled with Made in Italy product that is beautifully crafted and presented.

EXCLUSIVE: Stella McCartney Takes the Plunge Into Men’s Swimwear

STAR OF THE SEA: Stella McCartney is plunging into men’s swimwear with a debut collection that launches Tuesday in partnership ISA SpA, the Italian textile manufacturer, WWD has learned.
Animal and tropical prints — including a jaunty parrot one — from the ready-to-wear collection, star embroidery and a geometric pattern have been cast onto boxers, briefs, rash guards, cover-ups, towels and sustainable beach totes made in Kenya. The color palette includes lavender, yellow, blush pink and bottle green for the organic cotton and recycled nylon fabrics.
McCartney said because she designs swimwear for women, it was only right that she should do the same for men, and that launching the collection felt like a natural progression.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to broaden the men’s collection. I wanted to explore an area of a man’s wardrobe that is important and is perhaps slightly under-designed at times. And I wanted to bring the personality of the man into swimwear, so the relationship of the man and the woman on the beach has consistency.”
The collection will drop at the designer’s boutiques and on her web site and will also be stocked at stores including Harrods, Matchesfashion.com and Mr Porter. Prices range from 155 pounds to 255 pounds for

Per Götesson Men’s Fall 2018

Per Götesson wanted to create his ideal men’s wardrobe for fall.
“I always like to explore notions of new masculinity and modern masculinity,” said Götesson. “There is something soft maybe, and then juxtaposed with typical men’s wear cuts and [embroidery] and a bit of accessories.”
The Sweden-born designer staged his first stand-alone presentation at Machine-A in Soho after showing as a part of the Topman-sponsored Man collective.
Götesson described his man as erotic, sensitive, but not afraid as well — serious yet sincere. He focused on separates rather than complete looks and aimed to fill a man’s wardrobe with outerwear, denim and shirting — making everything interchangeable.
He continued to explore denim and proportion and made silhouettes of jeans drapey or tighter cropped. He simplified an oversize coat, which came across pared back as he removed the epaulettes and belt.
He looked at utility and men’s wear items like technical Army vests. Taking details from utility garments, he created Army green thermal leggings which featured cargo pockets. He paired this with a denim zip-up anorak parka with a fleece collar.
