Christian Wijnants Adds Men’s Knitwear Capsule

KNIT WIT: With the men’s market continuing to gain momentum, Christian Wijnants is the latest designer to expand into the segment, with a capsule of luxury sweaters set to launch in June.
The collection will be presented to press and buyers in Paris alongside the women’s pre-collection at the Galerie d’Architecture on Jan. 19. Wijnants said the plan for now is to remain focused on the knitwear category.
Inspired by Uzbekistan, the Great Silk Road and its textile traders, the line includes a fine round-knit sweater and a turtleneck, both made from fine merino wool, and a round-neck style in baby alpaca. The color palette includes shades of orange as well as some inspired by American painter Alice Neel.
The Antwerp-based designer, who founded his label in 2003, said the success of a small men’s wear capsule he designed a few years ago for a few fans and clients inspired him to launch the collection, which also includes jacquard sweaters, intarsia sweaters and 3-D knits.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Adds a Boss Enemy, Removes a Weapon

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s battle royale mode, Blackout, already featured zombies in select areas, but the latest update adds the fearsome Blightfather boss from Zombies into the mix.

Previously seen in Blackout during the mode’s beta stage, the Blightfather will be located south of the map’s Aslyum area in the Graveyard. You’ll know when he is available by a red pillar of light, and Treyarch said in a Reddit post that those who kill him will be “handsomely rewarded.”

Blightfather was originally seen in the Zombies map IX, and can also be fought on the Voyage of Despair map. He’s no pushover, requiring dozens of bullets to defeat.

EXCLUSIVE: L’Exception Adds Private Label Men’s Line

PARIS — L’Exception, the Paris-based online retailer dedicated to French labels, is launching a direct-to-consumer private label men’s line.
The idea, said founder Régis Pennel, is not to go into competition with the brands they sell but to present a complementary line of basics. The preppy line includes parkas, roll necks in merino wool, old-school cardigans and flannel shirts, with prices going from 35 euros for a T-shirt to 120 euros for a denim jacket.

Designing the line is Rémi de Laquintane, founder of Laquintane and cofounder of Parisian men’s wear label Éditions MR, both of which are carried by L’Exception. Lewis Lazar and Christopher Moore of French group the Oracle Sisters, which channels a Seventies vibe, are cited as the muses of the collection.
Launching on Oct. 11, the line will be sold exclusively on the retailer’s site and in a dedicated corner at its brick-and-mortar store in the Forum des Halles shopping center, with regular drops and a focus on European materials and production. The details of the supply chain will be shared on the site.
Pennel described the line as being very Parisian in style — “classic with a twist.”

Giambattista Valli Adds His Continental Cool to Sloane Street

VA-VA-VALLI: Designer Giambattista Valli landed with a bang in London this week, officially opening his first London store on Sloane Street and hosting a caviar-heavy dinner with British Vogue editor Edward Enninful.
The store, at 29 Sloane Street, is the latest in a series of openings — after Seoul and Beijing — following investment from Artemis, the investment arm of the Pinault family, the French billionaires behind the Kering group.
Later this summer, Valli will be opening in the Qatari capital of Doha, taking the store count to nine. The designer also has a store at Harrods, which will remain open despite its proximity to Sloane Street.
Part luxury home, part retail space, the Sloane Street boutique is awash with the designer’s signature floaty dresses in shades of mint and baby pink. The store carries rtw and accessories, but not haute couture.
“Come over and have a look,” said Valli during a walkthrough. “You can sit on an alligator bench while you buy an alligator bag. I love the idea of one-of-a-kind.”
Valli was referring to a small white bench part covered in alligator skin, one of the many hand-picked pieces of furniture and mid-century antiques in the new store, which spans two floors and

Intimates Brand ThirdLove Adds Sizing Options

Fast-growing online intimates brand ThirdLove has added 24 new sizes to its bra collection.
According to Heidi Zak, cofounder and co-chief executive officer of ThirdLove, the expansion was based on curated data that indicated the demand for the broader range of sizes. The company also conducted a beta test in June 2017 that sold out in eight days. That resulted in a wait list of 1.3 million women for the new sizes. ThirdLove’s size range — it now offers a total of 70 options — includes band sizes ranging from 28 to 48, and cup sizes ranging from an AA through H. The company also offers half-cup sizes.
In a telephone interview, Zak said the additional sizes will first be offered in its “Perfect Coverage Bra” in seven colors, including five “naked” shades to complement a range of skin tones. “We are keeping the price the same as the main line, even it costs almost 50 percent more to produce,” the co-ceo said. The average cost for a bra on ThirdLove is $ 68. Zak noted that most of the firm’s competitors offer just 25 or 26 size options.
The co-ceo added that plans are under way to add the size options to other

Danish Jeweler Monies Names CEO, Adds Paris Store

NEW ROOTS: Signaling its aim to expand, Danish jewelry brand Monies has named Anne Christine Persson as chief executive officer and is opening a Paris store with a Palais Royal address, the company said on Tuesday.
The label, known for chunky, handmade necklaces made out of petrified wood, cowbone and shells, said Persson will manage and develop the company’s business in Denmark and abroad, also handling its strategy for the future. The executive, who takes her position in April, worked at the Danish Fashion Institute and was involved in Copenhagen’s fashion week.
Founded in 1973 by goldsmiths Gerda and Nikolai Monies, the jeweler has a workshop in Copenhagen.
The new Palais Royal location will place Monies alongside brands including Stella McCartney and Acne Studios. The store stretches over 1,000 square feet on two floors, serving as a showroom for the jewelry and a place for events and exhibits as well, the founders said, noting that Paris has always been an important place for the label to meet both private and wholesale customers.

DXL Adds Mo Vaughn’s MVP Collections Big and Tall Line

Mo Vaughn’s MVP Collection has snagged its first wholesale customer, and it’s the big and tall industry’s biggest player.
The men’s lifestyle brand created by Major League Baseball’s three-time All Star and Most Valuable Player was picked up by DXL Group, which is testing the collection in a limited number of doors, according to David Levin, DXL’s chief executive officer.
“We see a movement back into the urban lifestyle for some of our stores,” Levin said. “The lifestyle that the Mo Vaughn collection represents has been a void in our assortments for the last several years.”
Levin said early results for the line, which is also available online, are encouraging and he hopes that a new marketing campaign that was built by the two companies around the launch of the label’s spring collection, will further boost sales.
“We are co-branding an online sweepstakes with MVP where users enter to win a variety of prizes,” Levin said. “The objective is to drive awareness to the new MVP Collections at DXL in several key markets.”
The collection is carried at several DXL stores in the New York area as well as units in Chicago; Atlanta; San Jose, Calif.; Las Vegas; Dedham, Mass.; Dallas, and Towson, Mary.

TOYZ ‘R’ US: Men want to have fun, too.
The Ermenegildo Zegna Group took the opportunity to launch a new collection of men’s accessories, games and home products during the international design and furniture trade show Salone del Mobile. Called Zegna’s Toyz, the items, which range from a domino set to a backpack, are made in Pelle Tessuta, an innovative woven napa made from extremely thin strips of micro-leather in place of fabric yarns. “Leather is treated as fabric,” explained artistic director Alessandro Sartori. Pelle Tessuta is woven on special looms, replicating the traditional way of weaving cloth, making it extremely light and versatile. “Feel how soft it is,” said chief executive officer Gildo Zegna. “Would you say it’s leather?”
Zegna’s Toyz will be available in the fall as part of a special holiday gift project in major Ermenegildo Zegna stores globally.
The collection is divided into Essential, including a valet box, a business card case and a sunglasses case; Toys, which includes a domino set, a playing card set and a game cube, and Technological, a selection of multimedia accessories, such as headphones, earphones and speakers, created in collaboration with audio brand Master & Dynamic.
