Harley Quinn Series Premiere: “Pilot” Review

Note: this is a spoiler-free advance review of the series premiere of Harley Quinn, which screened at Comic-Con tonight. The series will debut on the DC Universe app in October.

DC Universe may not come close to rivaling Netflix or Amazon Prime Video in terms of the sheer amount of exclusive content, but there is quite a lot to be said for the “quality over quantity” approach. So far DCU’s selection ranges from solid (Titans) to excellent (Young Justice: Outsiders) to literally one of the best shows of 2019 (Doom Patrol). Harley Quinn keeps the hot streak going. It’s a far more slapstick and raunchy alternative to the rest of DC’s animated line, but one that also gets Harley in a way not every adaptation does.

All the High Fashion Moments From Beyoncé’s ‘Spirit’ Music Video

Beyoncé’s “Spirit” music video is visually striking, both for its picturesque landscape and high-fashion moments.
Filmed in the Grand Canyon, Beyoncé is joined by a host of dancers and her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, dressed in looks ranging from Valentino’s spring 2019 couture collection to up-and-coming international brands, including Canadian designer Mark Fast and Brazilian brand Maison Alexandrine. The looks were styled by Zerina Akers.

The music video was debuted Tuesday evening and is a part of the upcoming “The Lion King” live-action reboot’s soundtrack, which Beyoncé curated and produced. Beyoncé herself voices adult Nala in the film and joined the film’s cast for the Los Angeles premiere on July 10, where she had a mother-daughter twinning moment with Blue Ivy, and for the London premiere on Sunday, where Beyoncé and husband Jay Z met the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The “Spirit” music video starts off with Beyoncé sitting in the desert wearing a color-blocked, exaggerated ruffle look from Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Valentino spring 2019 couture collection, which celebrated black women. She was joined by Blue Ivy, who wore a similar lilac-colored ruffle dress.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are continuing their philanthropic mission.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are starting their own charitable organization, named “Sussex Royal The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” according to The Sun’s reporter, Emily Andrews, who tweeted out the news on Wednesday. The charity will be called “Sussex Royal” for short.

Exclusive: #Harry & #Meghan’s new foundation will be called “Sussex Royal” (full title “Sussex Royal The Foundation of the D&D of Sussex).

Late Designer Azzedine Alaïa’s Personal Couture Archive Revealed – to Students

PARIS — Despite his best efforts, fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa never managed to keep his personal collection of couture garments a complete secret.
“Every time he went to a fashion auction, he used to say he was going to the physiotherapist,” said Carla Sozzani, Alaïa’s close friend and cofounder of the Association Azzedine Alaïa, speaking at an event at the maison’s headquarters in Paris on Thursday.
“We would say to him, ‘But you already went yesterday,’” she continued. “And then he’d come back laden with huge plastic parcels that he would hide under his desk. Just last month, we discovered some of those parcels: They contained rare Vionnet and Balenciaga pieces.”
The extent of Alaïa’s personal couture collection was discovered following the designer’s passing in November 2017, and was somewhat overwhelming.
More than 10,000 garments, ranging from vintage Vionnet, Charles James, Schiaparelli, Jean Patou and around 200 Balenciaga items, to more contemporary pieces like Martin Margiela and Comme des Garçons, lie in the fashion house’s archives in the Marais, left without any directions from the collector himself.
“I knew Alaïa was collecting, as I often saw him in the auction rooms and he always snagged the best pieces,” Olivier Saillard, fashion historian and director of

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Vera Gives Back

In Washington, two morons have worked hard to delay or dilute via an amendment approving ongoing funding of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund for first responders. In New York, two entities are joining ranks to do something nice for people who dedicate their lives to the protection of others.
Global Goddess of Bridal Vera Wang is pairing with Brides Across America, an organization that gifts bridal gowns and underwrites weddings for U.S. troops and, more recently, first responders.
Wang got involved as part of the observance of a major brand milestone. “2019…celebrating our 30th year in business! Who’d of thunk it?!” she mused. The approaching anniversary led her to reflect on more than her own place in fashion. “Milestones also make us grateful for all the opportunities that have come our way,” she said. “Given the world we live in, with all of its complexities and challenges, it is so joyful for me to celebrate my anniversary by celebrating people who have given their lives for us. I look forward to dressing 10 couples on their happiest of days.”
Brides Across America has been gifting gowns and weddings to military personnel since it was founded in 2008 by chief executive officer Heidi Janson.

The Best Social Media Reactions to the ‘Cats’ Trailer

The “Cats” trailer is finally here, and the Internet isn’t too happy about it.
When it was announced that the beloved musical would be given the live-action treatment, musical theater lovers rejoiced. But many have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment — and downright terror — toward the film’s first trailer.

The trailer features a number of A-list actors and musicians, including Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Idris Elba and Dame Judi Dench, among others, who appear as felines with human-like faces and bodies. The film’s director, Tom Hooper — best known for directing films like “Les Misérables” and “The King’s Speech” — has called the technique “digital fur technology.”
Many commenters are poking fun at said technology, comparing the actors to other iterations of this anthropomorphism in film, including in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” where Emma Watson’s character, Hermione Granger, accidentally transforms into a cat, and Mike Myers’ take on “The Cat in the Hat.” Others have taken liberty with the trailer by adding in their own edits, like one user who cut in the song from Jordan Peele’s horror film, “Us,” over the “Cats” trailer.

OTB Bans Disposable Plastic Bottles Throughout Group Companies

SAY NO MORE: OTB is forgoing disposable plastic bottles. The initiative will affect 2,500 employees in Italy and over the next few months it will be extended to the group’s foreign staff, reaching more than 6,500 people.
Dubbed “Remove Plastic From Water by Removing Water From Plastic,” the awareness campaign against disposable plastic bottles stems from an internal survey that revealed how every year more than 124,000 plastic bottles are purchased and used by the fashion group’s employees — only in its Italian companies.
Founded by Renzo Rosso, OTB controls Diesel, Maison Margiela, Marni, Paula Cademartori, Viktor & Rolf and production arms Staff International and Brave Kid. As reported in June, OTB has also taken a stake in the luxury brand Amiri, founded by Mike Amiri in 2014.
Taking a concrete step in curbing its environmental impact, OTB has banned the sale of plastic bottles effective immediately and is replacing them with drinkable water dispensers. To further encourage new daily practices, the group has provided its employees with sustainable bottles, partnering with 24Bottles, the Italian design company whose mission is to drastically reduce the use of disposable plastic bottles globally.
For OTB, 24Bottles has reinterpreted its “Clima” model in stainless steel which keeps a liquid hot

YG Celebrates Release of Summer Capsule

LOS ANGELES — “Rats Die Slow” reads the back of one 4Hunnid T-shirt.
The message needs no explanation rapper YG (né Keenon Daequan RayJackson) said about one of the pieces from his brand 4Hunnid’s summer capsule. The recently released collection of mostly T-shirts and a pair of basketball shorts is a nod to summer and beautiful women, he went on to say as he described the items.
“It’s really just representing our lifestyle during the summer,” he said. “When summer hits, a lot of people do a lot of things and they plan a lot of trips. I wanted to make a capsule based around pretty females.”
Most of the pieces bear phrases the music artist said represent the lifestyle of “having a good time, being real, being authentic, enjoying yourself, chasing your dream and getting your money.” The capsule debuted at an event Thursday evening that included a gallery-like installation of photos from the capsule’s look book imagery.
4Hunnid, also the name of YG’s record label under Interscope, started in early 2016. It largely won a following as artist merchandise but that changed last year with the introduction of a cut-and-sew collection that made its debut at a star-studded fashion show that drew

FIFA 20: 5 Gameplay Changes That Actually Make a Difference

Every year FIFA introduces gameplay tweaks and news additions, and in FIFA 20 we’re promised “Authentic Game Flow” and “Football Intelligence”, but what does that actually mean? These are 5 gameplay changes that actually make a difference in FIFA 20.

Pace Is Crucial Again

A common FIFA 19 frustration was how easily slow defenders caught up with much faster attackers. In FIFA 20, an aging Sergio Ramos can no longer catch up with a galloping Leroy Sané on the break; even the terrier-like N’Golo Kanté will struggle, especially if the German knocks the ball in front of him and strides into space. The range of pace between players has been noticeably increased, plus dribbling stats also contribute greater to their speed when in control of the ball. So while Cristiano Ronaldo may not possess the blistering speed he once did, his mesmeric dribbling ability keeps distance between him and a chasing defender.

Mia Becar Launches With Direct-to-Consumer Business Model to Sell Footwear

SURE-FOOTED: The direct-to-consumer footwear company Mia Becar is up and running.
The West Hollywood-based company was started by Betzabe “Betsy” Gonzalez and Carolina Lujan. Aiming to establish repeat customers, Mia Becar will offer monthly drops of capsule collections to try to keep shoppers coming back. The shoes retail from $ 575 to $ 875. “We thought this was the future of a luxury shoe brand. We want to keep the brand fresh. We also wanted to be able to control our message and our story.”
Gonzalez and Lujan were both born in Mexico and they studied shoe design and graduated from Arsutoria School in Milan in 2017. Their debut collection was inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood and features such looks as D’Orsat pumps, peep-toe mules and stiletto booties.
Married to former New York Mets player Adrian Gonzalez, Betsy has lived in different cities over the years due to his Major League Baseball career. On the road, she noticed a need “for brands that supported noble causes, elevated women and held themselves to the highest standards.” Motivated partially by the belief that “good shoes simply make life better,” she and her cofounder Lujan visited numerous factories in Italy before starting their Italian-made footwear brand.

Nike Is Making SpongeBob SquarePants Sneakers

SpongeBob SquarePants is getting his own sneaker collection.
In celebration of the Nickelodeon TV show’s 20th anniversary, Nike is teaming with NBA player Kyrie Irving to create a SpongeBob SquarePants collection that takes inspiration from the beloved show’s characters.
Nike and Irving — a self-described super fan of the show — worked in collaboration with Nickelodeon to create five versions of the Kyrie 5 and Kyrie Low 2 sneakers that are designed after the titular character along with his friends Patrick Star, Squidward Tentacles, Mr. Krabs and Sandy Cheeks.

A post shared by SpongeBob SquarePants (@spongebob) on Jul 16, 2019 at 8:31am PDT

The Kyrie 5 sneaker is created to look like a sponge with a yellow polka dot pattern and a red and brown sole that mimics SquarePants’ uniform suit. The sneakers also include an image of the character himself on the inside soles.
Because a SpongeBob SquarePants collaboration wouldn’t be complete without his best friend Patrick, another version of the Kyrie 5 sneaker is included in the collection that takes inspiration from the

Umbro, Kinfolk Collaborate on Rio-Themed Capsule

Umbro has teamed with Kinfolk, a streetwear label and retailer based in Brooklyn, on an ath-leisure-based collection inspired by the classic sportswear worn by the youth of Rio de Janeiro.
Classic Kinfolk and Umbro styles are being updated with the colors and signatures of the city such as the wavy pattern on the sidewalks of the Copacabana and the red, white and black of Flamengo, one of Brazil’s largest nightclubs. The club was a big part of Umbro’s 95-year history during the Nineties and its trademark bright colors were used for the collection.
“Rio’s street energy and the diversity of the city’s youth is super exciting. Kids dress with style, using what they have and wear it or customize it to make it unique,” said Jey Perie, Kinfolk’s cofounder and creative director. “I also love the incorporation of all the football jerseys in everyday street style. The Brazilian league still has the best football jersey design.”
To capture the collection, Kinfolk also worked with Brazilian photographer Ricardo Beliel, who captured the culture and atmosphere of the Maracanã Stadium in the Seventies and Eighties.
Helene Hope, Umbro’s head of global brand marketing, said the collection “captures the true vibrancy, spirit and energy of Brazilian street fashion.”

Versace Is Making Sneakers Inspired by Jennifer Lopez’s Iconic Green Dress

Nineteen years later, Jennifer Lopez’s plunging, jungle-themed dress is still iconic.
Case in point: the Versace number, which Lopez wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000, is getting the sneaker treatment in a collaboration between the fashion house and clothing brand, Concepts.
Launching Friday, the two have partnered for a limited-edition Chain Reaction platform sneaker that mimics the green, jungle-print seen on Lopez’s dress. The sneakers retail for $ 1,075.

Versace x Concepts Chain Reaction Sneaker. 
Concepts

Lopez’s dress is still celebrated as a cultural emblem of the early aughts and is credited for catapulting the singer and actress to fashion icon status. The dress was the impetus behind Google launching Google Images, with former chief executive officer, Eric Schmidt, stating that Lopez’s dress was the most popular search term that the company had ever seen.
The limited-edition sneaker is available in both men and women’s sizes and will be available on Concepts’ web site and stores in Boston and New York.

Jennifer Lopez Performs in Custom Designed Fur

IS IT HOT ENOUGH?: While half of the U.S. is gripped in a heat wave, Jennifer Lopez is storming along with her “It’s My Party”’ concert tour with all sorts of wardrobe changes, including a floor-length fur coat.
The pale gold fox coat was based on her specs and designed specifically for the Grammy winner by the Fur Salon at Saks Fifth Avenue. Lopez tried on a canvas in her New York penthouse apartment before the final look was created. In the end, she decided that a train was in order for the outerwear as well as an oversized shawl collar that doubles as a hood.
The Saks outpost has been tapped before for fur items for previous trips to the Oscars and Grammys, a spokeswoman said. Should any of her fans want to copy that look, a special-order version of the style can be had for $ 27,500.
The entertainer will soon have reason for another party — her 50th birthday is July 24. In honor of that occasion, the avant-garde footwear specialist Concepts has teamed with Versace to create limited-edition “Chain Reaction” sneakers inspired by the jungle-printed green dress with a plunging neckline that Lopez wore in 2000.

Agnona Marks Eternals Collection With New York Dinner

On Wednesday evening, Italian sportswear label Agnona held a private dinner with Bergdorf Goodman to mark the release of its essentials collection — a new range of four-figure wardrobe basics devised by creative director Simon Holloway.
The Waverly Inn’s garden room, with its translucent ceiling, provided dinner guests with a private, cozy viewing of the lightning storm that was covering New York. Poppy Delevingne, the collection’s spokesmodel, turned up in a camel cashmere suit just after the rain began. “It’s warm,” she said of the finely spun goat hair fibers cocooning her in heat-wave temperatures. In the more moderate climate of her native London, however, the model uses Agnona to “wrap myself up and be like a glowworm, which I love.”
Holloway said Eternals was devised as “a very elevated line of tailored clothing, pillars for every wardrobe in navy, black, camel, flannel gray and rosewood — essential pieces that are easy for women to wrap into their lives.” The collection’s suiting, loungewear and knits are meant to appeal to a lifestyle-in-motion — a woman who floats between travel, career and family life.
Holloway, who joined Agnona in 2015, was excited to report that “since joining the company, I’ve seen the [client] age

Chico’s FAS Florida Headquarters Locked Down After Shooter Threat

Chico’s FAS was on lockdown Thursday after the company received a tip about a shooter in the area. 
Chico’s security personnel received an anonymous call that there was an active shooter near the company’s Fort Myers, Fla. corporate headquarters.   
Local police were notified and the facilities were shut down as a result. 
“The security and safety of our employees is of paramount importance to Chico’s FAS,” said the company in a statement. “Local law enforcement and other emergency personnel were immediately notified, and are presently on site.”
All employees were notified and kept in a secure location. According to the company, no one was injured and no actual shooter was identified. 
Sheriff Carmine Marceno of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office told local press that the call was likely a hoax. Representatives at the retailer could not be reached for further comment.
Chico’s FAS is the parent company of Chico’s, White House Black Market, Soma and TellTale. Company shares are down more than 60 percent year-over-year.

Industry of All Nations Opens First East Coast Store in NoLIta

Industry of All Nations has brought its sustainability message to the East Coast.
Last week, the Los Angeles-based men’s brand officially opened its first store in New York City at 248 Elizabeth Street in NoLita. It’s the label’s third retail location, joining a unit that opened on Abbot Kinney in Venice, Calif., in 2015, and San Francisco at the end of 2016.
“New York feels right for us at this moment,” said brand manager Drew Preedeedilok. “We’ve been hearing ‘You’ve got to open a shop in New York City’ ever since we first opened in Venice. What’s more, we already see a lot of online orders coming from New York, so we know our customer is here.”
Industry of All Nations tested the waters by opening a pop-up at Unis, a specialty store located a few storefronts away on Elizabeth Street, from April to June of this year.
Founders Juan Diego and Fernando Gerscovich designed the interior of the 500-square-foot store and produced almost all of the custom fixtures from mostly recycled and repurposed materials. The brothers founded Industry of All Nations  in 2011 with the specific goal of changing how apparel is made. All of its goods are manufactured at the source of

Taco Bell Is Making a Sunglasses Collection

Taco lovers can now take their obsession to the next level — with Taco Bell sunglasses.
The American fast-food chain is teaming with Diff Charitable Eyewear for a capsule collection launching Friday that takes inspiration from many signature elements from Taco Bell, including its signature bell logo and its packets of hot sauce.
The five-piece collection offers kitschy updates on Diff Eyewear’s most popular styles, like the brand’s Luka visor-like style, which features the word “hot” branded over each lens. The style is also in an ombré yellow to red color scheme and includes a flame motif on the frame.
Also included are versions of the brand’s Sawyer style, including reading glasses that have cartoonish illustrations of tacos and hot sauce packets on its translucent frame and a black-frame version with the orange flame design seen throughout the collection.
The collaboration will be available on Diff Eyewear’s web site and at The Bell Hotel, Taco Bell’s upcoming, limited-time resort in Palm Springs, Calif., opening in August. Purchases of the styles will come with taco-shaped cases and a cleaning cloth that resembles a hot sauce packet.
The collection includes sunglasses, reading glasses and blue light glasses and retails for $ 85 to $ 95. As part of Diff

On the Moon Landing and Space Travel

Before cell phones, before texting and TV that streams, the world had a mass date with its television sets. On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 blasted off from Cape Canaveral, and four days later, Neil Armstrong took that mind-blowing giant leap for mankind with the feisty Buzz Aldrin right behind. Fifty years later, the notion still awes.
When WWD asked fashion folks their thoughts on the anniversary and whether they’d like to venture into space, the answers were broad. Some designers watched and remember. Ralph and Ricky tuned in during dinner at the Hotel Cala di Volpe in Sardinia; Vera, in the bar of an inn in the French Pyrenees where she trained with the French Olympic figure skating team. DVF remembers the event well; she married Egon on the day of lift-off and watched the landing on their honeymoon, on a “very bad TV,” while sailing the fjords of Norway.
For many more, the moon landing was an historic event they may have learned about at school or from parents or grandparents. It fascinates still. Christian Siriano and Julie Alkire marveled that it was a moment when all Americans came together (imagine that). For others, the anniversary brings thoughts of home.

EXCLUSIVE: Aitor Throup Announces Upcoming New Men’s Label

Aitor Throup is gearing up to debut a men’s wear label, WWD has learned.
The Buenos Aires-born and Burnley, England-raised designer, known for his highly conceptualized fashion, said this project marks “the biggest thing I’ve ever worked on, I’m nearing the completion of my vision, which has been 15 years in the making, and I’m near the end of it.”
The new men’s brand, the name of which is being kept under wraps, will make its debut later this year before fully seeing the light in 2020.
Throup, who had served as G-Star’s executive creative director overseeing the men’s and women’s mainline ranges and the Raw Research men’s line since 2016, last year parted ways amicably with the Amsterdam-based label co-owned by Pharrell Williams.
Prior to his appointment at G-Star, Throup had launched his conceptual men’s label New Object Research, which debuted on the London Fashion Week: Men’s calendar in 2013. In 2016 the designer hosted a performance-presentation hybrid in a deconsecrated church in Marylebone.
The men’s label blending fashion, design and the arts paved the way for the development of the new project debuting this year. “New Object Research was a part of this process, this exploration that has allowed me to develop a

Clara Daguin Couture Fall 2019

The domed Chapelle Expiatoire tucked into a quiet square in the 8th arrondissement, built on the original burial site of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette, provided the mystical backdrop for Clara Daguin’s first couture presentation.
The 2016 Hyères finalist, who specializes in combining artisanal techniques with technology in a form of science fiction meets fashion, showcased a single creation. Dubbed “Atom” and worn by her sister Mélanie like a living installation, her dress — if that is what it can be called — undulated in time to the soundtrack, activated by sound thanks to the circuits worked into the fabric.
Like the rings of gas that surround certain planets, four gauzy halos oscillated and glimmered around a column dress completely covered in five kilograms of glass beads, mirrors and neopixels, a pattern like a double-helix flickering mysteriously.
The creation of the design necessitated 3,142 hours of handiwork by a team of 31 helpers. Even in fashion’s tech-driven future, craftsmanship has its place.

Ubisoft: The Cost of Porting to Google Stadia is ‘Not That High’

Ubisoft has claimed porting its games to Stadia won’t break its bank for now during an earnings call, that also posted dwindling sales despite The Division 2 being reportedly one of the best-selling games of 2019 so far.

Head honcho and Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemont told investors that the extra R&D cash required to successfully port an existing game to Google’s cloud gaming service is “not that high.” However, he admitted that those costs might go up in the future.

“The extra cost to port, to make sure the games work well on Stadia is not that high. It’s part now of our pipelines and we have a good relationship with Stadia to make sure it is profitable for us,” he said. “Now we are not speaking about 2.0 types of games that will need more work and this we will see more in the future action.”

Stone Island x Nike Golf Capsule Kicks Off With Rory McIlroy

MILAN — The latest collaboration between Stone Island and Nike will be unveiled on July 18, the opening day of the prestigious four-day golf tournament the Open Championship, at its 148th edition, hosted this year at the Royal Portrush Golf Club in Northern Ireland.
The two pieces of the Stone Island x Nike Golf capsule, including a jacket and a crewneck, will be worn by Rory McIlroy.
“Knowing that the conditions during the tournament can change quickly, and can be quite challenging, we wanted to focus on outerwear,” said Kelly Tweeden, vice president and creative director for Nike Golf, Nike Tennis and Nike Skateboarding. “As experts in creating product that performs as well as it looks, Stone Island was a natural partner in finding the best solutions.”
Designed to facilitate the body’s movement, especially during the swing phase, and guarantee optimal thermic regulation, the jacket and the crewneck are crafted from a military cotton satin fabric bonded to a breathable, water-repellent membrane. The color palette includes gray, turquoise and yellow, this last used only for the crewneck.
“One of the things that has always made me enthusiastic is that those who love sports love Stone Island. Golf particularly fascinates me, because it is a precision game in

Michael Kors Leans Into Chinese Valentine’s Day With New Ambassadors

It’s a tough act to follow a megastar like Yang Mi, the face of last year’s Michael Kors Chinese Valentine’s Day campaign. So for this year’s occasion, the brand tried a different tack — tapping not one but two famous faces: Gen Z actors Leo Wu and Lareina Song.
It’s not the only thing about the campaign the brand has expanded. While last year was the first time Michael Kors produced a special capsule collection for the occasion — consisting of two purses — this year’s collection has grown to 30 items.
With a campaign shot by photographer Kai Z. Feng, the collection features graffiti scribbles on products spanning ready-to-wear, small leather goods, footwear and jewelry.

Qixi falls on Aug. 7 but in the lead up to that, Michael Kors will be throwing an event at its Chengdu Taikoo Li store on July 26 with the two stars.
Wu, who is in the middle of shooting “Cross Fire,” said he will likely spend actual Qixi working but shared there were plenty sweet moments to savor in life regardless.
“My fans really did many romantic things for me,” Wu said. “For example, on my birthdays, they would record videos consisted of all the work I did

Zuhair Murad Fall Couture 2019

With North Africa as inspiration, Zuhair Murad worked traditional carpet patterns into richly colored jacquards and hand-beaded jackets — using them to bring a new flavor to his world of decadent sensuality.
“I like in every collection to search for a theme and to let people dream, and enter the dream somehow,” Murad said before the show. His North African jaunt, which he called “Mirages et Oasis,” came in deep reds and purples, infused with Lurex, as well as some jazzy, solid-gold statement numbers. Last season’s pleated pastel rainbow dress — worn by Chiara Ferragni last week in an Instagram post that garnered more than 500,000 likes — came in gold renditions, one with a muted leopard print and embellished with sequins, and another with an iridescent sheen and a matching cape that billowed out behind.
Also in the heart-stopping category: a fiery orange chiffon dress with puffs of feathers lining the cape — the airy gown flowing from a tightly wrapped bustier.
Murad keeps it all highly elevated, yet he relishes contradictions. Here, he used velvet as a contrast to the shimmery and beaded sides of the collection, lending a quiet softness to the high volume lineup.
New this season: fabric headbands. Murad was

Moore From L.A.: Can Dockers Shed Its Dad Pants Image?

Dockers, the brand that invented casual Fridays, dressed Homer Simpson and inspired a 1991 episode of “Seinfeld” that had Jerry handwringing about dating a woman who liked a TV commercial for the chinos, is making a fashion play.
Owner Levi Strauss & Co., which had one of the most successful initial public offerings of the year, is putting renewed focus on the brand, hoping to strike gold again, this time with khaki — and a little help from some stylish Los Angeles friends.
Dockers tapped its go-to Hollywood collaborator Karla Welch, stylist to Justin Bieber and Tracee Ellis Ross, to design a capsule collection of five unisex styles now being sold at Dover Street Market, including $ 360 tapered pleated pants inspired by Fred Astaire. And it linked with cult L.A. upcycling brand Atelier & Repairs on three styles that debuted at the men’s wear trade show Pitti Uomo, including the “Kennedy” with chambray details and the “Traveler” with individual carpenter pockets for an iPhone and earbuds.
But can Dockers, forever the (saggy) butt of jokes, escape its goofy dad pants rep?
“For the last two decades, the business has been up and down and somewhat challenging,” admitted Levi Strauss & Co. chief marketing officer

K-Swiss and IGC Debuts First E-sports Performance Shoe for MIBR

K-Swiss has entered the gaming arena, launching the first e-sports performance shoe with Immortals Gaming Club for Made in Brazil, or MIBR, the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive e-sports organization.
K-Swiss and IGC formed a partnership in April 2018 and produced the Immortals x K-Swiss lifestyle sneaker that launched in December 2018. The new e-sports shoe is a continuation of this partnership.
The limited-edition shoe, named One-Tap, had been in production for one year. It was developed for both professional and amateur gamers, who generally practice and compete in seats. One-Tap has a mesh upper, a foldable heel to be worn as a sneaker or a slide, a “Flow Cool” TPU venting unit to let air into the shoe and wool-lined insoles to cover the vents for warmth. The shoe also has MIBR branding and the Brazilian crest, in reference to the organization’s name and home.
“This first version is designed for MIBR in their colors. We positioned this version as a beta program,” said Barney Waters, president of K-Swiss. “We wanted to get a version out for the players and start to get feedback on what could be improved and come back in 2020 with a finer version of the shoe.”
Waters said only 200

The ‘Gossip Girl’ Reboot Is Coming: A Look Back at the Show’s Iconic Fashion Moments

A “Gossip Girl” reboot is officially in the works.
Seven years after it went off the air, the CW teen drama, famous for its over-the-top fashion, is being remade for HBO Max, a new streaming service launching in spring 2020, which will be home to HBO and WarnerMedia programming.
According to TVLine, the reboot will also be set in New York and will highlight how social media plays into the lives of elite Manhattan private school students. The show’s former executive producers — Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran — are returning for the reboot, but it has not yet been announced if the original series’ cast — including Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Penn Badgley, among others — will be returning.
“Gossip Girl” has long been admired as one of the most fashionable TV shows of the late Aughts, attracting some of the industry’s biggest names for cameos, including Rachel Zoe, Karlie Kloss, Cynthia Rowley and Tory Burch, among others. Costume designer Eric Daman dressed the cast in looks straight from the runway, creating the show’s most iconic fashion moments. The series’ last season in particular had a number of standout looks, including Meester’s character, Blair Waldorf, who wore an Elie

Viktor & Rolf Couture Fall 2019

The prime definition of glamour as “an attractive or exciting quality that makes certain people or things seem appealing” links it unquestionably to the world of couture. Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren considered another facet of the word and started an “investigation into the original meaning of the word — casting a spell,” Snoeren said.
They had, they said at a preview, wanted to work with Claudy Jongstra, a fellow Dutch artist who has embraced sustainability in her work. To create felt such as the one used as a cornerstone of this collection, she raises her own flock, shears their wool herself and then dyes them using only plant pigments taken from her organic garden — including the elusive “Burgundian black,” a medieval recipe that produces a deep black with red undertones, which she redeveloped. Talk about a process.
But there was no preaching message behind Horsting and Snoeren’s musing. Rather, they wanted to inspire action. As the general feeling of doom about the environment rises on all sides, the designers wanted to “show something that would give a positive message,” Horsting said. “To cast a positive spell that says things can be done,” Snoeren added.

Quentin Tarantino Shares His Vision of an R-rated Star Trek Movie

Quentin Tarantino has shared his vision for the much-discussed Star Trek project, which – if it is ever approved for production – is expected to mark his final film as a director.

During a recent interview with Deadline, Tarantino spoke about his interest in exploring strange new worlds with Star Trek producer JJ Abrams, who reportedly supported his idea of boldly going with an R-rated entry.

“Deadpool showed that you can rethink these things, do them in a different way,” Tarantino explained. “So really, even before JJ knew what the idea was, his feeling was, if it wants to be an R rating, fine.”

Ripndip Suits Up for Texas River Float

LOS ANGELES — What started out as pricy marketing campaign for Ripndip might have the potential to be something more lucrative for the Los Angeles skate brand.
The company on Friday will host another River Float this time at surf park BSR Surf Resort in Waco, Tex. It’s projecting some 3,000 attendees for the third annual event, up from last year’s float, which drew a crowd of 2,000.
The event first began as an idea by Ripndip founder Ryan O’Connor as means of doing something fun and head-turning for the brand’s fans. It’s a big expense: it’s free for all ages and comes with a complementary Ripndip floatie for every attendee. This year’s event has also grown to include three Ripndip merchandise pop-ups that will include event-specific T-shirts and other pieces with the range retailing from $ 10 to $ 75. Performances from Paul Wall, Young Gravy and others are also part of the event.
“The cost of putting something like this on sometimes outweighs what we could sell through the booth, through the pop-ups,” O’Connor said. “But maybe this year the pop-ups will pay for the event. That’s the goal. But it is still marketing until we start charging for tickets, which maybe next

Canadian DTC Jewelry Brand Mejuri Opening Door in L.A.

Toronto-based, direct-to-consumer jewelry brand Mejuri is expanding to the West Coast.
The label founded in 2015 by Noura Sakkijha with the goal of delivering everyday high-end jewelry that Millennial women can afford to buy for themselves, will open a showroom/store on Aug. 10 at 8404 Melrose Avenue, adjacent to the trendy Melrose Place shopping stretch that houses Glossier, Marc Jacobs and Isabel Marant.
After Toronto and New York, L.A. marks the third brick-and-mortar outpost for the minimalist jewelry brand with 488,000 Instagram followers, which in four years has quadrupled revenue year-over-year, grown to 120 employees, and inspired waitlists up to 70,000 customers, according to a spokesperson. The L.A. location is the first to open since the brand raised $ 23 million in series B funding in April for retail expansion from venture capital firms including NEA, Felix and Imaginary.
Mejuri operates with a weekly drop model, and its delicate mini hoop and chain threader earrings, diamond-line necklaces, zodiac signet rings and dainty chain bracelets run from $ 29 to $ 2,000. The brand also sells engagement rings.
“California has always been an important market for Mejuri and there’s nothing more valuable to us than meeting our community where they are,” Sakkijha said of the new opening. “The
