Bloomingdale’s Introducing Dylan Gray Men’s Brand for Spring

Bloomingdale’s is getting back into the men’s private brand business.
A decade after the retailer retired its in-house collections brands, Joseph & Lyman and Metropolitan View, in favor of a classifications strategy, it is launching a bridge collection for spring under the name Dylan Gray.
The line is described as “a modern, sophisticated update on classic men’s sportswear that fuses the elegance of European luxury with the ease of American sportswear.”
The 38-piece collection of soft tailored clothing, transitional outerwear, knits and trousers is manufactured predominantly in Europe. It is designed to be a hybrid of tailored and sportswear.
“We felt there was a white space in the European transitional classic zone in our stores,” said Dan Leppo, executive vice president and general merchandise manager of men’s and home for Bloomingdale’s. “We think there’s an opportunity with all that’s happening in direct-to-consumer today to offer great value and great fashion that moves beyond commodity.”
Leppo said Dylan Gray is “made with the modern man in mind, offering solutions for work or play for today’s smart casual lifestyle, without sacrificing style. It’s about fusing classic sportswear with Old World sophistication at a compelling price point.”
Prices will range from $ 98 to $ 698 and will include marled bird’s-eye polos,

Kim Herring to Head Design for Culturata Brand

Kim Herring, a men’s wear veteran who served most recently as vice president of men’s private brand at Saks Fifth Avenue, has joined Culturata as chief creative officer for wholesale. He will be responsible for designing and presenting the seasonal collections for the brand while expanding its categories to create a full lifestyle offering. His first collection will be for spring 2020.
At the same time, Culturata’s founders and design partners Jacques Haggiag and Nadine Price will be leaving the brand, but will continue to consult with the label to ensure consistency, the company said.
In 2015, Culturata, a Canadian sport shirt brand, was purchased by Grano Retail Holding’s Luxury Men’s Apparel Group subsidiary, which also operates Hickey Freeman and Samuelsohn.

“At LMAG, we have always wanted to work with Kim Herring, who we consider one of the premier sportswear design talents in North America,” said Stephen Granovsky, chairman and chief executive officer of LMAG. “When Jacques and Nadine advised us that they wanted to pursue other interests, and Kim departed Saks, we jumped at the opportunity to secure Kim for Culturata. I wish Jacques and Nadine well in their future endeavors.”

Cottweiler Becomes First British Brand to Show at Seoul Fashion Week 

LONDON — The British Fashion Council is furthering its partnership with Seoul Fashion Week in support of emerging talent, with men’s wear label Cottweiler the first to benefit from the special relationship.
Cottweiler, the streetwear brand that won the 2016-17 International Woolmark Prize for men’s wear, will be the first British name to be sponsored at Seoul Fashion Week in March. The brand will restage its fall 2019 show alongside those of South Korean designers.
“We are very grateful to be given the opportunity by the BFC and Seoul Fashion Week to present our work to a wider audience and connect to our already growing fan base in South Korea,” said designers Matthew Dainty and Ben Cottrell of Cottweiler. “This will be our first venture outside of London Fashion Week and for it to be in a city that embraces cutting-edge style like no other is an exciting prospect.”
The BFC-Seoul partnership aims to support emerging British and South Korean talent through sponsorships and to provide them with the opportunity to showcase directly to buyers and media.
“We are thrilled to be able to host Cottweiler in Seoul and to build on our partnership with the British Fashion Council,” said Jung Kuho, executive director of

Steve Aoki Collaborates With Travel Accessories Brand Fūl

For the guy on the go, travel and gear accessories brand Fūl has unveiled a range of accessories — a collaboration with Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Steve Aoki called the “Fūl-Aoki” collection.
Fūl, originally founded by Justin Timberlake in 2004 and now owned by Concept One Accessories, has carved out a space in the travel category with backpacks, belt bags and travel gear inspired by the nomadic life of a musician but curated for anyone with an active lifestyle.
“Steve and I had been talking about doing something together for Fūl over the past couple of years,” said Sam Hafif, chief executive officer of the accessories brand. “Travel is such a big part of his life. No one I know travels as extensively as he does, so his vision for the product and how it should function comes from a unique personal experience.”

The line takes a cue from the streetwear scene and Aoki’s personal style, and splits into two distinct directions.

Dunhill to Spotlight New Brand Positioning in U.S.

The Alfred Dunhill brand can trace its roots all the way back to 1893 but its presence in the U.S. market over the years has been spotty at best.
In the Fifties, the London-based brand operated major stores on Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles and Rockefeller Center in New York and counted celebrities such as Frank Sinatra as fans.
But it slowly lost its grip on the market as management changed, stores closed and the brand cycled through a number of designers including Richard James, Nick Ashley, John Ray and Kim Jones.
Enter Andrew Maag, a former Burberry executive who joined the brand at the end of 2017 and promptly set out to “right size” the business and redirect its focus back to its core business. “We were really missing the mark in the luxury space,” he said. “But we’re just now experiencing a turnaround.”
That has been helped in large part by the positive reaction to the modern tailoring created by the company’s new creative director, Mark Weston.
At the same time, Maag said that since joining the company, one of his major focuses has been updating the fleet of stores. “They desperately needed to be brought up to relevant standards,” he said.

Rising Jewelry Brand Prounis Marks Department Store Entry

Jean Prounis’ namesake fine jewelry line, Prounis, next week marks its entry into department stores.
The brand will hold a trunk show at Bergdorf Goodman for the next month. Running from Feb. 26 through March 28, the Prounis trunk show will mark its kick-off with a personal appearance by the designer on Tuesday evening from 5 to 7 p.m.
Bergdorf’s adds to Prounis’ roster of specialty stockists that already include Dover Street Market in New York and Los Angeles, Holly Golightly in Copenhagen, and Desert Vintage in Tuscon, Ariz. She has also held a trunk show with Moda Operandi’s digital interface.
“Bergdorf Goodman, in particular, has a really great timelessness. It’s such a historical store that I feel is in line with my brand story and image. They really care about quality and there is this sense of yesteryear, an homage to a New York elegance of the past,” Prounis, 25, said of her decision to show with the department store.
While the designer has a focus on direct-to-consumer and private sales, she decided to enter department stores, Bergdorf’s in particular, for the chance to reach a wider clientele.
At Bergdorf’s, Prounis will sell her signature 22-karat gold pieces, as well as five-figure designs from

The Skinny on Skin: The Company Expands Into Lifestyle Brand

Skin, the 15-year-old loungewear and sleepwear company founded by Susan Beischel, president and chief creative officer, is growing on several fronts.
The luxury lifestyle brand, which sells such retailers as Net-a-porter, Neiman Marcus, Bon Marché, Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys New York, introduced swimwear last year, as well as a second-tier line called Natural Skin, geared to stores such as Bloomingdale’s, Dillard’s, Hudson’s Bay and Printemps.
Natural Skin, which had a successful soft launch at retail in the fall, is priced 35 percent to 40 percent below Skin, said Ken Sitomer, chief executive officer, who joined as Beischel’s business partner in 2011.

Skin swimwear, whose distribution has been kept relatively tight, is sold at such retailers as Net-a-porter, Everything But Water, Neiman Marcus and Matches.com.
According to Beischel, the swimwear has the same concept as Skin’s other luxe products. as far as comfort, style and being multifunctional. “The fabric had to be super soft, and I needed to wear it as a body suit, or as a bra, or a workout top,” she said.

Randa Invests in Stantt Men’s Brand

Randa has signed on as the lead investor in Stantt, a made-to-measure men’s wear brand. Randa was joined by New England Development, CompanyFirst, Sapna Shah of Red Giraffe Advisors, and entrepreneur John DeWees. The amount of the Series A financing was not disclosed but is said to have been a multi-million dollar investment.
The New York-based Stantt was cofounded in 2013 by Matt Hornbuckle and Kirk Keel and uses proprietary DataFit Technology, which is comprised of 99 sizes and an algorithm that requires only three measurements to create a custom fit. The brand offers wovens, knits and performance cloth in a variety of regular and big and tall sizes. All garments are made-to-order and delivered in seven days.
The financing round was led by Randa Digital Labs and will be used by Stantt to “increase marketing partnerships and support to more than 300 retail partners, enhance brand touch-points across all channels, drive expansion into new product categories and enable the hiring of key personnel,” the company said.

STREET SIGNS: How WeSC Transitioned From Mall Brand to Contemporary Streetwear Line

When Joseph Janus joined WeSC seven years ago as chief executive officer of the American business, the Swedish streetwear brand, which is named We Are Superlative Conspiracy, was being produced and distributed by its U.S. licensee Oved Apparel Group. Like most streetwear and skate lines at the time, the brand was focused on mass distribution in retailers such as Tillys, Zumiez and PacSun.
But Janus, who has previously worked for brands including Calvin Klein, Guess and JNCO, sensed a shift coming in the market and knew he would have to slowly make WeSC more premium.
“I wanted to bridge the gap between traditional streetwear and luxury,” said Janus. “How do we get into better department stores and grow up with our consumer who is starting to mix luxury items into their wardrobe?”
In 2013 the brand bought back its U.S. license and created an independent American subsidiary and Janus was charged with growing business in the U.S. Over the course of the last few years, he’s made small shifts to get the company, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, where it is today.
Step one was slowly increasing the price points and changing the distribution from mall stores to better department stores. Janus

Meet P448, the Sneaker Brand Wayne Kulkin Is Betting On

MILAN — If you think the sneaker trend is about to end, think twice.
Wayne Kulkin, former vice chairman and chief executive officer at Stuart Weitzman, who oversaw the label’s global expansion during a 26-year tenure, is among the latest executives to have thrown his hat into the sneaker ring.
In 2017, he teamed up with Hilco Global’s chairman and ceo Jeffrey Hecktman to form StreetTrend LLC, a holding company focused on bringing Italian heritage and craftsmanship to the sneaker arena. He soon identified P448, an Italian niche sneaker brand founded in 2014 by Marco Samorè and Andrea Curti, as a label with great potential.
“It’s an oversaturated market, but on the other hand, there’s a complete casualization. I don’t think this is going to change and [we will] go back to men wearing suits and ties and women wearing dresses all day long, so this trend is here to stay. It’s comfortable, it feels good, it’s easy to wear and cool.”

After helping to expand the label’s global retail network by signing an exclusive distribution and marketing agreement with P448 in 2017, Kulkin deepened his commitment to the brand by acquiring a stake in the company last summer.

Ones to Watch: Studio ALCH, C2H4 and Feng Chen Wang on the Power of Streetwear and Brand Collaborations

LONDON — Designers from around the world have been coming in waves to London Fashion Week Men’s and among the newest names on the calendar are Studio ALCH, C2H4 and Feng Chen Wang. But while they may be new to the London runways, they’ve already garnered international attention, having worked with brands such as Nike, Levi’s, Kappa and Converse.
The Australian designer Alexandra Hackett of Studio ALCH, who creates new garments from repurposed Nike pieces, said she’s come to London to be better integrated into the international market. “Australia is quite geographically removed, which is reflected in its industry. London is more of an internationally recognized city and you can create product that, perhaps, has more markets in different countries across the world,” she said.
Hackett caught Nike’s attention early on and the famous swoosh has become her brand’s trademark. The sportswear giant has also sponsored some of her designs. Hackett has snared celebrity fans such as Kendrick Lamar, who has worn Studio ALCH’s boiler suit made from reconstructed Nike bags, and British Grime rappers Stormzy and Skepta.
“I was always interested in Nike from a branding perspective and thought it would be a really interesting brand to work with in terms of their

Men’s Wear Brand Fisher + Baker Targets Women for Minneapolis Event

Fisher + Baker is a men’s brand, but that didn’t stop the company from targeting women for an event at its Minneapolis headquarters earlier this month.
More than 80 women showed up at the Fisher + Baker studio for a Sip and Shop event, its first initiative targeted to females.
The event also served as a fund-raiser for Minnesota Wild’s Jason Zucker’s #Give16 Campaign, which was created by Zucker and his wife, Carly, to build the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital.
Fisher + Baker donated $ 2,500 to the campaign from the event.
“Women are powerful consumers and are influential in the brand and style decisions of the men in their lives,” said Mike Arbeiter, Fisher + Baker’s chief executive officer and president. “By targeting female consumers as part of our brand engagement strategy, we are building awareness with a community that has a strong influence on men’s wardrobes.”
At the event, the women browsed through the brand’s classic styles of outerwear, sweaters and shirts while enjoying wine and cheese. Among the most popular items was the Lexington Vest, which retails for $ 298.
Arbeiter said the Sip and Shop event “was intended as a pilot concept that if

Former Free People and Blackstone Staffers Unveil Bra Brand

Cuup wants to be a bra brand that connects with customers on an empathetic level.
Launched this month by Kearnon O’Molony, Abby Morgan and Lauren Caris Cohan, each founder brought their own issues to the table, which they hope to solve with Cuup.
O’Molony, who previously served as the managing director in Blackstone’s private equity group, spent a year trying to acquire La Perla, but the deal didn’t go through because the company filed for bankruptcy. While researching the intimate apparel market, he found some issues with the market mostly involving fit, inventory and manufacturing. Cohan, who previously worked at Free People, had a hard time finding her bra size. And Morgan, who met Cohan while working at Free People and Vimeo, felt like storytelling within the intimate apparel space was lacking.
With Cuup, they are doing things differently. According to O’Molony, most bra production starts at a 34B and is scaled up and down from that. With Cuup they are creating a bra for each size and have done 80 fittings instead of the typical six to have a better-fitting product that accommodates different bodies. They are also working closely with a bra manufacturer that’s more open to producing this many sizes

MILAN — Aldo Maria Camillo will unveil the first collection of his namesake label at Pitti Uomo, running in Florence Jan. 8 to 11.
The designer was selected by the international men’s wear trade show at its Pitti Italics Special Event.
“Aldo Maria Camillo works exclusively and with great focus on men’s fashion studying the masculine silhouette, with the aim of giving a new imprint and freshness to men’s wear. His cultural references belong to an intimately classical background, supported by solid stylistic training and an acute sensitivity to current worldwide events — which goes beyond fashion. He has talent, imagination, and a sense of material,” said Pitti Immagine director of communications and events Lapo Cianchi. “The new project of Aldo Maria is very personal and immediately engaged us, because we believe that in men’s wear it is essential to return to the standards of elegance nonetheless, re-read and renewed in a modern key. We want to join him in this adventure — the launching of his self-named brand — which now more than ever before requires courage and determination.”

Martha Stewart Is Brand Ambassador for Aerosoles

Lifestyle doyenne Martha Stewart is partnering with Aerosoles to be its brand ambassador and collaborate on a line of footwear, handbags and accessories for the footwear retailer.
The first style will be a limited collection of rain boots for holiday, to be followed by a complete collection for spring that will include casual and dress flats, heeled sandals, luxury mules and slides, as well as espadrille wedges. Handbags and accessories will follow.
Stewart said, “It’s fun. What we’re trying to do with Aerosoles [is] make gorgeous shoes at the right price.”
She spoke about a recent visit to Bergdorf Goodman’s shoe salon. “You couldn’t move. There were so many people shelving out thousands of dollars for a new pair of shoes. The shoes were gorgeous, but the average Joe can’t go there. We’re trying to make affordable shoes for the average person.”
First up are the equestrian-inspired rain boots, under the tag Martha Stewart for Aerosoles, which will range in price from $ 79 to $ 99. According to Stewart, they will sell on Aerosoles beginning Nov. 1, and later on at QVC, where Stewart already sells her apparel offerings.

Blufin Introduces Be Blumarine Contemporary Brand

MILAN — Blufin, the fashion group controlling the Blumarine brand, is launching a new upper contemporary label, named Be Blumarine.
The new brand replaces Blugirl, which will be discontinued from the pre-fall 2019 season, when the company will unveil the first Blu Blumarine collection.
To inaugurate the new course, Blufin has tapped Mirko Fontana and Diego Marquez, the founders of the Au Jour Le Jour contemporary brand, as creative directors of Be Blumarine. Blugirl was previously designed by Anna Molinari, who will remain creative director of the Blumarine luxury line.
“This new brand was born after some serious consideration on the Blugirl label. We wanted something more mature, more modern and more dynamic, and I think that we had to incorporate in the new brand the name of our first line, which is well-known in the world,” said Gianguido Tarabini, Blufin chief executive officer. “Be Blumarine is for a woman aged from 25 who want to dress herself in a young way, with high-quality clothes that reflect the Blumarine world but are more accessible in terms of prices.”
In order to mark a clear distinction between Blumarine and Be Blumarine, Blufin developed a range for the contemporary line featuring an average wholesale price of

Spell & The Gypsy Collective, the 10-year-old contemporary brand started by sisters Isabella Pennefather and Elizabeth Abegg, opened its first stand-alone retail space in the U.S., a pop-up at 1108 Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, Calif. Open through Nov. 25, the shop has attracted cult lovers of the brand, some of whom traveled from as far away as Florida and Canada just to shop.

“Because we’re slow fashion, we don’t make too many pieces so they tend to sell out very quickly,” said Pennefather, who started out in 2008 making jewelry that she sold at the open-air market in Byron Bay, Australia. When her sister, Lizzy, came on board a few years later, they expanded into clothing and e-commerce, and the business grew from there.

‘Made in France’ Brand Rue Begand Opens First Store

PARIS — One is in Troyes, a city in eastern France with a deep-rooted textile history. The other is located in the Haut Marais, a trendy shopping district in the center of Paris.
Rue Begand — the men’s fashion brand — has opened its first brick-and-mortar store on the Rue Charlot, after launching wholesale in January at L’Exception in France and United Arrows in Japan.
Doubling as the label’s headquarters, the shop sports a photo studio in its basement where the fall 2018 and spring 2019 collections were shot for the Rue Begand e-shop, set to launch in a couple of weeks.
Named after a street in Troyes that used to house a number of clothing workshops, the brand is a celebration of local savoir faire.
“Eighty percent of our clothes are made in Troyes,” said Rue Begand’s founder Samuel Granata, adding that the remaining part is manufactured in a nearby town, with a few of the more voluminous pieces being made in Tunisia.
Rue Begand works with L’Atelier d’Ariane, a historical clothing manufacturer based in Troyes run by Granata’s mother Véronique. “My family has had the atelier for over 20 years,” said the 25-year-old founder, who runs the brand with his brother Arthur. “I spent most of

Macko Joins Camp Hero Accessories Brand

Michael Macko has become a partner in Camp Hero, an accessories brand that produces unisex hand-beaded items such as bracelets, cuffs and hatbands. Macko, whose career has included stints at Saks Fifth Avenue, Details and MR Magazine, is helping the brand relaunch to focus exclusively on e-commerce and seeks outside investors to help it grow.
Camp Hero was founded in 2014 by childhood friends Allie Carroll and Dan Schneier who built a business that had over 100 wholesale accounts including Orvis, J. Crew and Murray’s Toggery. However, the strategy will now change.

“As we enter 2019, there will be a real emphasis on e-commerce and developing new business verticals,” said Carroll.
Schneier added that it was Macko who first discovered the brand and added it to the MRket show in 2014. “He’s been a mentor from day one, and his incredible creative perspective and business acumen will help bring Camp Hero to the next level,” he said.
Macko’s first order of business will be to oversee a web site redesign and revamp of the product offering to increase the assortment and the frequency of its drops, which will include limited-edition items such as the reissue of the Dia de los Muertos belt  as well

Nana Judy Emerges on Fairfax Avenue as L.A. Comes Into Focus for Brand

LOS ANGELES — Nana Judy is the latest brand to set up shop on Fairfax Avenue, marking the brand’s entry into retail.
The company’s 2,650-square-foot store is next to Tyler the Creator’s Golf Wang shop. The space, which the company will officially ring in on its Oct. 25 grand opening, will also serve a dual purpose as the company’s U.S. headquarters and showroom.
“The brand’s been around for 11 years in Australia and we have a flagship in Melbourne, which does extremely well,” Nana Judy founder Glenn Coleman said of the thinking behind opening a Stateside store now. “We’ve been in the U.S. market for two years and the demand has been a natural progression and it happened organically through our consumers.”
The company’s had its eye on Fairfax Avenue for a few years now, Coleman said, jumping at the chance to sign a lease when space became available.
Coleman pointed to the street’s culture and the existing brands on Fairfax that made it a primary focus for Nana Judy’s first store.

Will a Larger Adidas Yeezy Boost Release Hurt the Brand?

Kanye West always wanted this.
Not having royalties and not being able to produce more sneakers were the main reasons he left Nike. And upon signing his deal with Adidas, which started in 2013, he made it clear that he wanted more people to have access to his sneakers. Today he’s making good on that promise with the release of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 in an all-white colorway that retails for $ 220. Customers will only be able to purchase the sneakers directly through adidas.com and the Yeezy Supply web site. They are reportedly releasing 1 million pairs of shoes.
West’s influence, along with scarcity, is what has bolstered the Yeezy footwear line. But what happens when a Yeezy Boost style becomes even more ubiquitous? Will it have the same trajectory as the Jordan brand, which lost market share and cache due to overproduction. WWD spoke with people in the sneaker industry to see if the release will hurt or help the brand.
Matt Cohen, vice president of business strategy and development at Goat, a sneaker resale app
WWD: What do you think of this release?
Matt Cohen: This is an interesting release because we’ve never seen something like this. For one, it’s a restock,

Meet Shefit, the Sports Bra Brand Set to Compete With Under Armour, Nike

Sara Moylan, who founded Shefit in 2013, met Jeffry Aronsson two years ago. Aronsson, who has held chief executive officer posts at brands including Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan, was speaking at a fashion talk in Detroit, his hometown, when an eager Moylan pitched him her idea: a fully adjustable sports bra.
As a competitor on the fitness circuit, Moylan had trouble finding sports bras, which represent a $ 3.5 billion dollar industry in the U.S., that fit her. She decided to make one herself by gluing and sewing fabric together — they would fall apart in the wash — but she eventually partnered with a local seamstress in Grand Rapids, Mich., where Shefit is based, to develop what she envisioned.
The patented Shefit Ultimate Sports bra, which retails for $ 67, allows wearers to adjust the bra to whatever support level they need. With velcro closures, the bust band can be loosened or tightened up to eight inches while the shoulder straps offer 15 inches of adjustability. The bra also has a magnetic zipper closure, making it easy to get on and off, and compression and encapsulation that prevents uniboob. It accommodates cup sizes A through I with sizes

Sanyo Partnering With Apolis Men’s Brand

Apolis, a socially conscious men’s brand, has inked a deal with Sanyo Shokai to expand the label’s presence in Japan as well as its product offering.
Sanyo will act as a partner, exclusive distributor and licensor for the brand and will oversee production and distribution starting with the spring/summer 2019 season.
As part of the deal, the Apolis e-commerce site will be relaunched, a flagship store will open in Tokyo, the brand will add women’s wear and its men’s wear offering will be expanded.
Creative director Raan Parton will partner with the Sanyo team to design the product, which will be manufactured in the Japanese company’s factories in that country along with Apolis’ network of global artisans rounding out the production.
Collections will be produced globally and will continue to adhere to Apolis’ sustainable standards and environmental conscientiousness.

Icecream Relaunches as Luxury Brand

Icecream, which was founded by Pharrell Williams and Tomoaki Nagao, better known as Nigo, in 2005, the same year they started Billionaire Boys Club, is back but with a sleeker, more elevated aesthetic.
Williams, who still owns the brand, and his team took into account how luxury and streetwear are commingling and brought on Matthew Chevallard, the founder of Del Toro, to design the collection, which will be released as mini capsules throughout the year. The Icecream sneakers were originally produced by Reebok.
“We wanted to pay homage to what Pharrell and Nigo created but bring it up to date,” said Chevallard. “We think this can sit alongside brands like Off White, Gucci and Palm Angels. We are also seeing consumers buying more luxury tchotchkes and collector’s items so that will be included in the line.”

Icecream 

First up is a capsule that harkens back to Icecream’s diamond and dollars print. The assortment includes a made-in-Italy sneaker with leather laces, a leather-wrapped sole and a gel bottom, a velour slip-on sneaker, suede slides and a trucker hat. The line retails from $ 195 for the slides to R$ 350 for the sneakers. The footwear will be sold in clear, acrylic boxes covered with the Icecream logo.

OVS, Massimo Piombo Unveil New Brand

Italian men’s wear designer Massimo Piombo has a couple of new jobs to add to its résumé.
On Thursday, Italian retailer OVS and the designer launched the new Piombo brand, cutting the ribbon of the label’s first freestanding store here. OVS and Piombo hold a 70 percent and 30 percent stake in the company, respectively.
In addition, the designer, who was named OVS men’s artistic director in March, will expand his role. Stefano Beraldo, OVS chief executive officer, announced that Piombo will take on the creative director post overseeing all the retailer’s lines, which include women’s wear and kid’s wear — a particularly successful segment for OVS according to Beraldo — along with men’s wear.
The fashion direction of the OVS women’s ready-to-wear collections will continue to be led by Caterina Salvador, under Piombo’s guidance.
The first store for the new Piombo brand, which is positioned in the contemporary, affordable luxury segment, is located in the city’s artsy Brera district. The 1,291-square-foot unit will be open for business Sept. 14, along with a second banner in Treviso, in Italy’s Veneto region.

Fine Jewelry Options Now Available for Marilyn Monroe Brand

DIAMONDS, ANYONE?: In her role as Lorelei Lee in the 1953 film “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” Marilyn Monroe performed “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” Now Marilyn aficionados can “get the look” from the M.Monroe Collection, a fine jewelry line starts at $ 150 for a simple sterling silver chain and go as high as $ 350,000 for the statement piece, the Stellar Cosmos Necklace, in 18-karat rose gold featuring 11 white diamonds in varying sizes. The majority of the pieces are priced between $ 2,000 and $ 4,000.
Many items in the collection – there are three core groups, Whisper, Aura and Stellar, all inspired by her attributes and multi-faceted personality – include a signature M hangtag that has a diamond accent mark, representing the Monroe mole on the left side of her face.
The line is available at the M.Monroe web site. Authentic Brands Group, the brand management firm that owns the intellectual property assets for the Marilyn Monroe brand, partnered with Adama Partners for the line. Adama, a New York-based venture firm focusing on the global diamond, gemstone and jewelry industries, last year combined forces with Bain Capital Private Equity and Bow Street to take online jeweler Blue Nile private.

Robert Stock to Create New Brand

Robert Stock is ready to do it again.
The founder and former chairman of Robert Graham has transitioned out of that role and will launch another brand next month.
Called simply Robert, the upscale men’s lifestyle brand will be online only and utilize a club concept where customers will pay a membership fee to join Robert’s Club and gain access to the woven shirts, knitwear, sport coats and outerwear.
Stock’s partner in the new venture is Thomas Main, former head of design at Robert Graham, and a 30-year colleague of the designer.
“This is what keeps me going,” Stock told WWD. He said that since the Robert Graham company was acquired by Tengram Capital Partners five years ago and subsequently went public, there have been a series of “ups and downs.” Stock has been serving as a brand ambassador and consultant and has not been involved in the day-to-day operation of the brand.
However, he said the parting was amicable and he remains “on very friendly terms” with the Robert Graham team. “My name is on the label and I’m still a stockholder and have a lot of feelings for the company. So if the situation calls for it, and they need me, I’m always available.”

EXCLUSIVE: Penélope Cruz Is Chanel’s New Brand Ambassador

NEW FACE IN TOWN: Chanel’s haute couture show today will have a Latin flavor: Spanish star Penélope Cruz is due to attend the display in her new capacity as ambassador for the French fashion house.
The Oscar-winning actress will be the face of the brand’s cruise campaign, shot by Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel said in a statement provided exclusively to WWD.
“It’s such an iconic brand and Karl is a genius, and I’ve been admiring everything he’s done since I was a little girl, so it’s such a pleasure working with him. He’s like the king of fashion and we had a really, really interesting photo shoot, so to be in front of his camera is an adventure,” Cruz told WWD.
Debuting in Bigas Luna’s 1992 film “Jamón Jamón,” in which she starred opposite her future husband Javier Bardem, Cruz has since worked with directors including Stephen Frears, Rob Marshall, Woody Allen and most notably, Pedro Almodóvar.
She first attended a Chanel show in 1999 and has regularly worn Lagerfeld’s creations on the red carpet, including for the Oscars and the Cannes Film Festival. In addition, Cruz wore several outfits by Chanel — including a striking black evening dress festooned with gold chains — in

The Ken Scott Brand Makes a Comeback With Resort Capsule

MILAN — Ken Scott’s joyful and creative aesthetic is making a comeback.
The Ken Scott Foundation established in 1989 by the Indiana-born designer, who died in 1991 and became popular in the Sixties and Seventies with his colorful prints, has teamed with Milan-based Daniele Ghiselli Showroom to unveil a women’s resort 2019 capsule collection.
In particular, a design team of young fashion talents went through the designer’s archives in Milan to find the prints, which they used to pepper a range of contemporary designs infused with urban, street influences.
“The Ken Scott Foundation’s archives, which are completely catalogued and digitized, count 6,000 different prints and about one-third of them are unseen,” said Ghiselli, founder and chief executive officer of the namesake showroom. “He is identified and recognized for his floral patterns, but he actually developed so many themes, including sports, boats, bicycles, cars and food, just to cite a few. His prints look so modern and I think this is just the perfect moment, considering the current trends, to bring them back.”

A look from Ken Scott resort 2019 collection.

The capsule, which includes about 60 ready-to-wear pieces, as well as 30 footwear styles and 30 bags, will retail from 120 euros for sweatshirts to 250

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

Bonobos and the Modern Male: A New Brand Story

For some time, the story around Bonobos has been its fits, diversity of styling and the $ 310 million deal to Walmart. 
But how to build a brand that lasts? The message might need to be more than product and the company’s doubling down on its marketing with a new campaign called Project172, which kicked off Monday with the launch of two TV spots. 
The campaign — with the TV commercials paired with a national e-mail, social media and radio campaign — enlisted 172 men (the total number of sizes and fit combinations in Bonobos pants), all wearing the same pair of stretch washed chinos in the same color, to share their thoughts on gender stereotypes and the changing definition of masculinity. The company is set to release on May 21 a mini-documentary with footage from conversations with those 172 individuals talking about their definition of masculinity. 
“We have been working in the last couple of years in terms of trying to position Bonobos from a brand perspective as a brand that stands for not just great fitting clothing but really helping men find their fit in the world, recognizing that the world is changing dramatically and particularly for men changing,” said Bonobos copresident

There were sheer organza “jean” jacket tops and blazers and organza details on jeans, an oversize crushed velvet jacket and pants, and a minimalist ribbed cashmere slipdress. As for the actual jeans, they came high-waisted and skinny with button flies and pockets, in holographic silver and a style that zipped up the front of the leg from ankle to waist. To play up the brand’s Los Angeles roots, the look book was shot at Chateau Marmont on Jacquelyn Jablonski, styled with combat boots to emphasize the Nineties-ness of it all.

John Elliott on Building Brand Via Social Media

TOKYO — As a child growing up in San Francisco, at about age 8 John Elliott decided he wanted to start his own company. After sketching sneaker designers in class, his mother encouraged him to send them to Nike. Surprisingly, he received a written response from the company, which serves as “hallowed inspiration” for his streetwear brand now that he has collaborated with the activewear giant — something that he dreamed of for more thanijkjkjmjmm 20 years.
In a Q&A session with WWD style director Alex Badia, Elliott discussed his brand’s evolution.
WWD: How was it to collaborate with Nike?
John Elliott: That was pretty incredible. I think being a kid that is basically a swoosh lifer, having the ability to now tap into both their heritage and their performance, it’s been a dream come true. They’re an incredible partner. I think 2018 will actually be our biggest year yet with them. We have a lot of projects in store.
WWD: Moving back a little bit, when and why did you decide to launch John Elliott?
J.E.: I had worked in the industry for about 10 years, and I was leaving one job and I moved to New York and from New York I actually ended

Golden Goose Deluxe Brand RTW Fall 2018

Golden Goose Deluxe Brand’s creative team imagined a girl going on holiday in her family’s house in the mountains. There, finding the wardrobe of her grandparents, she plays with vintage pieces, which she mixes and matches with her personal style.
In keeping with the theme, the wearable collection was infused with a sense of warm coziness. A cocooning faux fur oversized robe coat with a maxi hood was worn with corduroy pants and a roomy precious shearling jacket was matched with ski-inspired leggings in a botanical pattern.
Tweed was combined with shearling on a blouson worn with coordinated pants and a mannish sartorial suit was decorated with detachable faux fur pockets, which can be transformed into plush gloves.
Vintage mountain graphics jazzed up a double-breasted coat worked in a lively bubblegum pink, as well as a cotton T-shirt paired with a skirt embellished with a plissé silk insert.
Golden Goose also offered a luxurious take on denim, which was used for soft straight leg five pocket pants and for a cool bleached puffer jacket inspired by retro ski gear.

J.W. Anderson Asks Public to Create Spring/Summer 2018 Brand Campaign

ME, TOO: Jonathan Anderson is taking a collaborative approach to his spring/summer 2018 ad campaign, asking members of the public to submit pictures so that he can promote future imagery – and image-makers – with the slogan Your picture/Our future.
“By asking for submissions in this way, it really feels like the right way
 to find new imagery. We have taken a chance on image-makers in the past, and we decided to do it in an even bigger way now,” the designer said, adding that he wants to help emerging talent along.
“I felt as if we were given a chance. We were all young, new and coming through together, particularly when we launched our campaigns. It felt right to give somebody else that opportunity. Fundamentally, it is about talent giving a chance to talent —this is something I really believe in.”
He said the aim is to “galvanize a new generation of image-makers—aged 18-30—and to help one of them develop a distinct voice in the forthcoming campaign.”
Anderson, the label’s founder and creative director, is working with Benjamin Bruno, the brand’s creative consultant and M/M (Paris), who usually work with Anderson on his campaigns.
Anderson also plans to curate the submissions for a show

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.

“We are really treatment specialists,” said Isabelle d’Ornano, Philippe’s mother, after the screening of a brief film to present the brand. Hair care, after all, is considered the new skin care today.

Designer Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Husband and Brand Cofounder Divorcing

It looks like the married owners of cult favorite boutique and brand Maryam Nassir Zadeh are headed for a split.
Eponymous founder Maryam Nassir Zadeh and her husband and business partner Uday Kak, who is also a photographer, made a contested divorce filing in a local Brooklyn court late last week. Documents in the case are sealed, but a contested filing generally means there is either a dispute over child custody, assets or both.
The now-former couple shares two daughters and public profiles list Zadeh and Kak as partners in the boutique, which has a storefront in New York’s Lower East Side, along with a popular e-commerce business. There is also a Maryam Nassir Zadeh line of shoes and bags, priced roughly between $ 400 and $ 900, as well as design-forward apparel, which Zadeh designs and has expanded over the last year.
Zadeh held her second fashion show in September at the East River Track in New York, with seating on bleachers and a surprise performance by Solange Knowles. She’s been producing seasonal collections since spring 2015.

The boutique carries a number of luxury designers, from the established to the new, like Marni, Rochas, Isabel Marant, Jacquemus, Lemaire, Jesse Kamm and Dumitrascu, and offers an

Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Pre-Fall 2018

Founded in 2000, Italy’s Golden Goose Deluxe Brand has more recently been growing within the U.S. For pre-fall 2018, the brand designed a ready-to-wear and shoe collection around a fictitious woman who fantasized about stories of her grandfather, should she have ever met him. Notes from the designers claimed the collection, “is an ode to real imagination and imagined realities.” Vintage references ran throughout; there was Forties-inspired suiting, like a lilac set or striped trouser, along with multiple trenchcoats with full gun flap and box pleats. Men’s wear references and the reemergence of the brand’s original cowboy boots were also strong throughout. A mismatch of graphics — celestial, collegiate, tropical scenes, logos and floral prints — could have been pared down to make the whole idea more concise.

Maria Cornejo to Serve as Brand Ambassador at Première Vision New York

CORNEJO’S CRYSTAL CLEAR VISION: Première Vision and the Council of Fashion Designers of America have crowned Maria Cornejo as the brand ambassador for next month’s Première Vision New York.
The designer is crafting a selection of exclusive designs for the show, putting to use textiles from the Swiss company Schoeller Textil. She said of the collaboration, “First, I am a total fabric nerd. I start always with fabric, draping. That’s the way we design the collection, designing the fabric. Secondly, the collection is going more and more toward sustainability.”
The show will run Jan. 16 and 17 at Pier 94 in New York.
The opportunity to work with Schoeller, the 2017 Fashion Smart Creation prize at the last PV Awards, was a selling point for Cornejo who also commended the company’s avant-garde reputation in this arena. The Swiss textiles maker was honored for its double-face fabric with a color-contrasting back in ECONYL yarn. “This was an amazing opportunity. There was no reservation for me to do it because it was also about spotlighting sustainability, showing that it doesn’t have to be boring,” she said. “It can be design. It doesn’t have to be granola or look beige. There are different ways to approach

How Tommy John Introduces Its Brand to Macy’s Customers

Tommy John has made its way to Macy’s.
The men’s underwear brand, which was founded by Tom Patterson in 2008, began as an online-only company, but eventually moved into wholesale partnerships with Nordstrom and Men’s Wearhouse. Now, the company has secured a selling area at Macy’s Herald Square where Tommy John will operate a holiday pop-up that’s open through January.
“The underwear section of any department can be a very crowded space with hundreds of brands, styles and silhouettes cramped into limited square footage,” said Patterson. “By choosing to launch the Tommy John pop-up in Macy’s Herald Square, we’ve pulled Tommy John away from all the underwear brands on the market and taken over our own space to showcase the product and its features and benefits.”
In addition to a pop-up that showcases what Patterson described as an improved shopping experience that transforms underwear from a commodity to a more considered purchase, the company made a splash with an appearance from  comedian Kevin Hart, who invests in Tommy John and recently released collaborative product with the company. The first 200 customers who purchased pieces from the Tommy John x Kevin Hart collection were able to meet Hart, take a photo with him at

J Brand RTW Spring 2018

Staged in a sun-filled studio set with loads of green plants and wicker chairs on which the models lounged, it was easy to infer an organic, clean California aesthetic from J Brand’s spring collection. The collection’s jeans — many cropped with high waists, wide or straight legs in powdery pink, natural off-white and traditional blue indigo — will pair well with the pottery-loving, gluten- and dairy-free cool girl’s lifestyle. From jean jackets to white Ts to a black leather miniskirt, the shapes were mostly clean and classic with little to no whiskering and the only distressing a raw hem or two. For the first time, men’s was included in the presentation, with the guys playing perfect counterpart to the girls in skinny jeans and relaxed jackets in shades of white, gray and faded blue.

Marina Testino Unveils Point Off View Fashion Brand

Marina Testino is ready for her fashion debut. The recent Parsons School of Design graduate and niece of famed photographer Mario today unveils Point Off View, her fashion brand.
After graduating in May and signing with The Society Management’s creative roster, Testino went to Peru to work on the collection. She says she consulted with some of her teachers from school, as well as her aunt, who lives in Peru and studied fashion. “Really, it was kind of a secret project,” Testino says. “I saw my uncle [Mario] over the summer and I showed him the collection, but once it was done, not a lot of people knew that I was doing it.”
Through Point Off View, Testino hopes to release about two capsules a year, featuring a different artist collaboration with each. The first, designed solely by Testino, is called Edition Zero.
The Edition Zero offerings include a “Risky Business”-inspired button-down for $ 120, a denim jacket for $ 210 and an army jacket for $ 180. Each piece is emblazoned with whimsical phrases like “go skinny dipping” or “buy me a drink” or “misbehaving.” Testino says she designed the line for “young women, ages 16 to 30 years, that are outgoing and fun and

George Zimmer Acquires Competing Online Tuxedo Rental Brand

George Zimmer is building his empire.
Generation Tux, the online tuxedo rental business founded in 2014 by the gravelly voiced founder of Men’s Wearhouse has acquired a competing business called Menguin in a stock exchange deal worth $ 25 million.
As part of the deal, Menguin has relocated to Louisville, Ky., the headquarters of Generation Tux, and its chief executive officer, Justin Delaney, will become president of both brands, which will continue to be run as separate businesses. His cofounder Bogdan Constantin will serve as chief marketing officer.
“I met these guys about a year ago and they had a small company that was doing about the same volume we do,” Zimmer said. “But the difference was that we invested many millions more than they did. They built their business on old-fashioned hard work and knowledge.”

George Zimmer 
Joshua Scott

The four-year-old Menguin has been experiencing a compound annual growth rate of 800 percent. Generation Tux expects to have sales next year of between $ 20 million and $ 30 million.
He said the number of rentals and revenue of the two companies was similar, but the expense structure at Generation Tux is much higher. One marked difference is that Menguin did not own its rental inventory while Generation Tux does.

Timberland Introduces New Boot Style With Nationwide Brand Activation

Timberland is embracing creative product drops.
The VF Corp.-owned outdoors brand has introduced Ghost White, its first six-inch, all-white boot. The limited-edition style will be released this week. The company will celebrate the launch by rolling out six customized ice cream trucks today in New York, Baltimore and Washington, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Los Angeles, where customers will be gifted free ice cream and compete for a chance to get a free pair of boots. The ice cream trucks will be stationed outside of participating Timberland retailers where shoppers can purchase the boot.
“Timberland is a well-respected brand, but I thought it was important to let people interact with the brand,” said Mel Peralta, Timberland’s lifestyle marketing manager, who was hired by the brand in March to handle all of its brand collaborations.
In terms of the boot’s design, Peralta said this is an effort from Timberland to integrate functionality with style.
“This is our first white-on-white colorway on our classic six-inch premium silhouette,” said Peralta. “For us it’s a superimportant boot that’s the perfect marriage between heritage and style. It has the DNA of a workman boot because it’s waterproof, but it’s a stylish look.”

Bachrach President Talks New Brand, Growth Opportunities

One-hundred twenty days. Maybe men’s retailer Bachrach could get an award for that.
In four months and at a cost of about $ 1.3 million, the company filed for Chapter 11, reorganized and emerged nine stores lighter, armed with a new plan for its future.
“The most important thing that we had to accomplish was to close the non-performing stores,” said president Brian Lipman of the bankruptcy’s objective. “Our portion of stores was spread between A, B and C malls. We’re a 100 percent mall-based retailer and some of the locations we had were either in the wrong malls for the product price point we sell or the occupancy costs were just out of the stratosphere. We just couldn’t make money in those doors. And that’s what we accomplished.”
Bachrach, via its in-court restructuring, closed nine doors and now has a fleet of 15 along with e-commerce, in both of which the company sees growth opportunities. While the retailer will consider store growth, that will be in existing markets and will avoid spreading the business too thin, which was one of its issues pre-bankruptcy, Lipman said. It will also look to nab a new, younger customer with the launch of a more fashion-forward, digital

Steve Aoki Named Co-owner, Brand Collaborator for Vision Street Wear

Authentic Brands Group, which owns Vision Street Wear, has teamed up with Steve Aoki to bolster the line.
The DJ and producer will serve as brand collaborator and co-owner. Aoki said he would be involved in all areas of the business, including overall strategy, marketing and creatively developing each collection.
“This is a whole different world than doing an endorsement deal or a sponsorship deal and just rocking some T-shirts,” said Aoki. “Vision is a beloved brand to me. It’s a brand I grew up wearing and loving through my adolescence and now I am in this position to be a part of maintaining and growing the brand on all different verticals.”
Vision was founded 40 years ago by Brad Dorfman, who started out producing skateboards before introducing Vision Street Wear. Authentic Brands Group acquired Vision Street Wear, which works with partners in Japan and South Korea, in 2014.
Nick Woodhouse, president and chief marketing officer for Authentic Brands Group, believes Aoki, who played at his bachelor party, is the ideal person to build up the brand.

Wallflower Jeans Taps ‘Moana’ Star Auli’i Cravalho as Brand Ambassador

Wallflower Jeans, the junior denim and sportswear resource, has tapped actress Auli’i Cravalho as the new face of the brand, beginning with the fall back-to-school campaign. The Hollywood newcomer, known for voicing Disney’s “Moana,” will star this fall in NBC’s “Rise,” while fronting the #FeelingIt campaign for Wallflower. Previous Wallflower girls have included Katherine McNamara, My Life as Eva, Olivia Holt, Bella Thorne and Sarah Hyland.
“I love that Wallflower caters to so many different styles and sizes. As a growing teen, there’s a sense of pride in wearing clothing that makes you feel like you, and because Wallflower is ever-expanding and staying on trend, it means they’re really growing with me,”said Cravalho, who called her first fashion shoot “a fantastic whirlwind experience.”
“I had initially heard about Wallflower through previous brand ambassadors, and it didn’t take long for me to realize how awesome the brand is. Affordable, cute, well-made clothing isn’t the easiest thing to find,” she added.
The fall collection places an emphasis on buy-now-wear-now and curating your own closet.

Rich Hilfiger Does Tango Hotel Brand

Rich Hilfiger, a recording artist and Tommy Hilfiger’s son, has caught the apparel bug.
Joining forces with Al-Baseer Holly (Bonic), a rapper turned visual artist, and pro skateboarder Stevie Williams, the longtime friends have launched a lifestyle brand built on “permanent vacation,” an ideal all three founders not only promote but live their lives by.
Named Tango Hotel, the Los Angeles company had a quiet launch last July in Miami (without any product to speak of), where it partnered with Agenda to host the trade show’s kickoff event at Raleigh Hotel, owned by Tommy Hilfiger, with a poolside performance by Travis Scott.
Tango Hotel was launched in select Macy’s stores across the country in June, with a collection of men’s designer socks and briefs featuring original artwork from both Rich Hilfiger and Holly.  It was also shipped to specialty boutiques and is being sold at Tangohotelbrand.com with prices starting at $ 12 for socks and $ 25 for briefs.
“The brand is all about the idea of Tango Hotel being a place of permanent vacation, a state of mind,” Holly said.
“The Tango fit is how underwear is supposed to fit, it feels like you have nothing on,” Hilfiger added. “We have the best looking waistband in

Activewear Brand Varley Looks to Assert Performance Positioning

Activewear brand Varley doesn’t want to be known for just leggings and sports bras with pretty prints.
The company, with offices in London and Los Angeles, is making moves to distinguish itself from the competition with the release of its Collection 2, or C2, by playing up its technical fabrications and its line’s wide-ranging uses for workouts or everyday life. Like many in the space, it’s hoping to not get pigeonholed in what is now a crowded ath-leisure and activewear space.
“I think when we started here the marketplace was much narrower. There weren’t as many brands out there doing or offering what we were doing,” Varley chief executive officer and founder Lara Mead said. “All of a sudden we had the ath-leisure boom and Varley kind of got washed up in that.”
To remain competitive, the company is looking to hammer home the point to consumers that its offering isn’t just workout gear and can be for everything from walking the dog or running a marathon, with its technical fabrics that offer moisture wicking, compression and four-way stretch.
“We were just worried that people weren’t aware of that,” Mead said.

Costume Jewelry Brand Melinda Maria to Collaborate With Sarah Michelle Gellar, Petra Flannery

Los Angeles-based costume jewelry brand Melinda Maria is finding its groove with a slew of collaborations and an expansion on QVC. The brand, which has a celebrity following that includes Selena Gomez, Alessandra Ambrosio, Taylor Swift, Chrissy Tiegen and Victoria Justice, is known for fashion-forward pieces that retail from $ 38 to $ 298, with a median price of $ 78.
This summer, founder and designer Melinda Maria Spiegel launched her first collaboration with Rebecca Gayheart and Kelly Oxford to benefit the Chrysalis foundation — a pair of butterfly-shaped earring jackets, a bracelet and a necklace.

“We design the pieces together and only the strong pieces will survive the cut. It’s not a traditional way of doing a collection for me; it’s very item-driven more than a ‘collection’ because the purpose is to create pieces so customers feel like they are wearing a beautiful piece of Melinda Maria and feel good about giving back,” Spiegel said.
Next month she will link with Sarah Michelle Gellar to benefit the World Hunger Organization, and in September, she will tie up with Kelly Sawyer and Norah Weinstein

Gordon Reid: Uniqlo’s New Global Brand Ambassador

NEW FACE: Uniqlo has appointed Gordon Reid, the world’s top male professional wheelchair tennis player, as its latest global brand ambassador. Reid, a Paralympics singles gold medalist, is the first British athlete to represent the company in such a capacity.
“Mr. Reid is a champion of great resilience and human character, overcoming adversity to triumph at the highest level of his sport,” Tadashi Yanai, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Uniqlo’s parent company, Fast Retailing, said in a statement. “These are exactly the values we look for in our brand ambassadors, so it will be a great honor to see him compete in Uniqlo apparel at Wimbledon, where he made history as its first ever men’s singles wheelchair champion.”
Through its global brand ambassador program, Uniqlo represents Shingo Kuneida, another wheelchair tennis star. Other athletes currently in the role include golfer Adam Scott, tennis player Kei Nishikori and explorer Marin Minamiya.
“It’s a real privilege to be joining Uniqlo as part of such a great team of global brand ambassadors,” Reid stated.

SHOPPING DEALS UPDATE:


Nike Reimagines Jordan Brand for Fall

A classic is getting a new spin from Nike.
The Oregon-based athletic company has rebooted one of its stalwart brands for fall, pushing the design envelope to give it a new look and new direction.
“We’re excited about today,” said David Creech, vice president of design for Jordan Brand. “We feel like it’s a new day for Jordan apparel and one of the big reasons why is we have this rich heritage. We’re trying to create a story inspired by our DNA, scripted into new designs to create a design language for the future. So in the past I think we didn’t leverage more of the DNA of our brand like we could.”
Fall aims to change that.
Most of the pieces in the collection bear a wing-like detailing that is a nod to the flight suit Michael Jordan was photographed in, for a detail Creech said sets the tone for future seasons.
Creech was on hand in Los Angeles Thursday evening as the company offered press and influencers previews of the season at an event held at a private residence in the Beverly Glen neighborhood. The collection was on display throughout the home’s first floor and garage where a black-and-white Ferrari sat.

Jack O’Neill, Founder Of Iconic Surf Brand, Dies At 94

Jack O’Neill, a pioneer in wetsuit technology and founder of the iconic California surf brand, died of natural causes Friday at the age of 94, the Orange County Register reported.

Friends of the Santa Cruz local confirmed his death to Monterey news station KSBW 8 on Friday.

For those who don’t surf, O’Neill’s name is still recognizable as the popular surf brand with a wave-like logo seen on T-shirts, sweatshirts and board shorts, usually worn by anyone who can appreciate a beach-centered lifestyle. 

For those who do surf, however, O’Neill was an innovator of the sport and a true soul surfer. He was known as the eye patch-wearing pioneer (his eye was injured in a surfing accident) who created one of the first neoprene-based wetsuits, which allowed surfers to remain in cold water much longer, according to the O.C. Register.

While others have claimed to have invented the wetsuit, it is O’Neill who is widely credited with expanding surf culture into the colder coastal areas of the world.

In 1952, O’Neill opened a small surf shop at Ocean Beach in San Francisco ― a first for the area ― and looked for ways to stay warm in Northern California’s chilly waters, San Francisco Gate reported. While working on the neoprene-based wetsuit, O’Neill moved his shop south to Santa Cruz.

“I thought that I’d have a little shop on the beach and some people to surf with. But I kept up on the neoprene wetsuit and I soon got letters from around the world ― people who were interested in staying warm in the water,” O’Neill said in a 2012 interview with surf news site Surfline.

“Nobody is more surprised than I am how it’s grown,” he said of his invention.

Surf brands and wetsuit makers still use neoprene. O’Neill, as a brand, has branched into men’s and women’s athletic wear, lifestyle clothing and swimsuits. In 1996, O’Neill, the surfer, founded the O’Neill Sea Odyssey, a youth program that teaches environmental and marine conservation.

In an interview with RedBull TV published in December, O’Neill revealed what he values most: “The three most important things in life are surf, surf and surf.”

O’Neill celebrated his 94th birthday on March 27. He died at home surrounded by family, according to KSBW 8.

Balenciaga to Open First-Floor Brand Takeovers at Colette

GUEST HOUSE: Balenciaga recently revamped its Rue Saint-Honoré store, a few doors down the same Paris street from Colette. Now Balenciaga is kicking off a series of monthlong brand takeovers of the first floor of the landmark concept store.
For its guest slot — scheduled to run June 19 to Aug. 5, with a custom-made design under the artistic direction of its creative director Demna Gvasalia — Balenciaga is to present its men’s fall collection, an exclusive women’s collection and limited-edition products specially designed for the event. Other surprises are in store, according to Colette, with the Kering-owned brand also due to stage an artistic installation in the floor’s gallery space. Only the store’s Beauty Box space will remain unchanged.
Gvasalia, whose design ethos is based around “enhancing, underlining and re-presenting that which already exists in a new light,” in March unveiled a new design concept for Balenciaga’s Rue Saint-Honoré flagship based on a clothing warehouse, with industrial conveyor rails similar to those in the brand’s production headquarters in Italy, ceilings covered in aluminum foil, and long, aluminum tables for accessories.
Following in Balenciaga’s footsteps, meanwhile, will be Les Vacances de Lucien, offering a selection of designs from brands represented by Paris-based Lucien Pagès’ namesake public relations agency, which will take over the space from

No, You’re Not Imagining Things: Every Celebrity Has Been Wearing This Brand

When Selena Gomez posted the first selfie that more or less confirmed her relationship with The Weeknd at Weekend 1 of Coachella, we didn’t immediately think, “Are they or aren’t they?” (Although, that question this pop up very shortly after.) Instead, we thought to ourselves: “Hm, where have we seen Selena’s dress before?” It took us a full second to realize where we’ve spotted the bright blue, floral-printed, square-necked slip dress with the matching bandana before: on nearly every fashionable Instagram star that’s been turned on to fellow cool girl Harley Viera Newton’s clothing line, HVN.

It hasn’t even been a year since the model/DJ launched her eponymous label last summer exclusively on MatchesFashion. But the line, which translates vintage-inspired dress silhouettes into contemporary printed-silk styles, has grown immensely, both in terms of where it’s stocked (HVN is now sold at Opening Ceremony, Net-a-Porter, Kirna Zabete, and more industry-favorite retailers) and who’s wearing it. Alexa Chung, Caroline Issa, and Natalie Joos were early supporters of the label — but as its selection of peppy patterns has multiplied, so has its fan base: Everyone from Jennifer Garner and Kelly Ripa to Sasha Lane and Gomez has recently have worn HVN; it’s an eclectic gang of stylish women who’ve all got an appreciation for nostalgic prints on flowy dresses. And we must say, the #OOTD envy is real.

“I’ve been really lucky to have some amazing women wearing my dresses,” Viera Newton told Refinery29. Margot Robbie was one of HVN’s earliest adopters, opting for the cherry-print Morgan dress; stylist Kate Young tipped her off to the brand. “This print definitely became a top seller, and is now a core pattern I have brought back for other seasons,” she told us of the fruit-themed pattern. As for the DJ-turned-designer’s “dream HVN girl,” that’d be none other than Rihanna: “I would love to see how she would style the dresses and make them her own.”

Now, the entry price on Newton’s line is pretty steep: Styles start at $ 445 and cap out at $ 755. So, if any of these dresses have piqued your interest, you may want to start saving your pennies now, before the warm weather settles in fully. But judging from the crop of celebrities that have worn HVN in the past few months (many of whom are repeat customers), these are the type of pieces you keep wearing again, and again, and again, and again, regardless of the season. Read on to see what all the hype is about.

Put down the fringe and pick up one of HVN’s peppy floral prints — it’s what Selena Gomez would do (and actually did do at Coachella this past weekend).

Gomez wears HVN's Falling Floral Nora Dress.

Baby, you’re a (HVN) firework: here’s Ashley Benson in the latest riff on the Morgan shirtdress.

HVN Morgan Firework-Print Short-Sleeved Dress, $ 625, available at MatchesFashion.

HVN’s cosmic prints have been a recent favorite among the brand’s biggest fans. Kate Mara is partial to the comet print on the Lily silhouette, a ’90s-esque slip with a belted waist.

HVN Lily Harley’s Comet-print silk slip dress, $ 445, available at MatchesFashion.

Once we all collectively decide to move on from millennial pink (it’ll happen one day, folks — we’ve got to brace ourselves for it), we have a feeling mint green will fill the pastel-hued void in our wardrobe. Kelly Ripa already found her match in this HVN shirtdress.

Ripa wears HVN's Morgan Vine dress.

Jennifer Garner is actually one of HVN’s biggest stans: She owns the Morgan in the Tarzan print (pictured), and has also been spotted multiple times in the blue, heart-printed Maria dress.

Alliance Apparel to Roll Out New Nightlife-Inspired Brand

KEEP ‘EM COMING: Alliance Apparel has plans Wednesday to launch the label H:ours to be sold through Revolve’s online shop.
The aim for the contemporary company’s latest line is to offer a collection of nighttime including form-fitting minidresses and bodysuits. The collection launches at an event set for Wednesday evening at Avenue L.A. that’s expected to draw Chanel Iman, Jasmine Tookes, Hailey Clauson, Chiara Ferragni and Olivia Culpo among others. H:ours at launch will retail from $ 98 to $ 338.
The rollout of Alliance’s latest collection is good timing as other Los Angeles brands playing in the contemporary space lose steam. Bebe is shuttering stores as BCBG Max Azria Group and its portfolio of brands wind their way through a bankruptcy restructuring.
Alliance has been on a tear more recently with its brand launches following its 2015 acquisition by Revolve for undisclosed terms. The deal brought Alliance’s portfolio — which at the time consisted of Lovers + Friends, Tularosa and NBD — into the multibranded e-tailer’s fold.
The deal was followed up not too long after with the launch of the footwear brand Raye. Last year saw the introduction of Majorelle and Grlfrnd denim along with a House of Harlow 1960 x Revolve collection.

J Brand Fall RTW 2017

J Brand’s fall lineup was all about a woman’s power wardrobe. “You can see that in not just styles and silhouettes, but fabrications and the color palette,” explained Mary Peffer, global director, marketing and communications.
The collection is heavy on jewel tones, black and taupe, which were all worked back into the other denim pieces.
Velvet and corduroy were the fabrics of choice. “We have worked with velvet usually as bottoms for our fall collections, but this time around, we really transitioned the fabric into ready-to-wear,” said Peffer, referring to the several camisole, slipdresses and jackets.
There was also a focus on outerwear: motorcycle jackets in classic black leather and denim and even a shearling and leather number.
But ironically, their most feminine look was perhaps the strongest — a black leather belted super high-waisted pencil skirt worn with a simple black fuzzy sweater.

Supreme’s Angelo Baque Exits Brand

NEW YORK — Supreme’s longtime brand director Angelo Baque has left the streetwear firm.
Baque has launched his own creative agency, Baque Creative, and will continue to consult for Supreme. He said he has not been replaced.
According to Baque, who has been working on his agency since late last year, Supreme is one of his clients and he will still oversee the overall art direction for the brand — including look book and editorial visuals — and offer his opinions about collections.
Baque, through his own creative agency, also works with Nike NSW and Converse.
“I spent 10 years with the brand and I’ve changed a lot in those 10 years,” said Baque, who met James Jebbia, Supreme’s owner and founder, when he was a store associate at Stüssy. “When I started with Supreme, I didn’t know what the hell I was going to do. There was no title and it was just wide open. The company was so small back then. It was 2006 and I was able to figure it out and see where I fit in. I have a photo background and I felt like I could help the brand and bring a new perspective to the visuals.”

Luke Wilson Links With Criquet as Investor and Brand Ambassador

Luke Wilson is taking a laid-back approach to celebrity branding in the fashion business.
Known for his affable, easygoing persona on the big screen in movies such as “Old School,” “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” and “The Royal Tenenbaums,” the actor has linked with Criquet, a golf apparel line based in Austin, Tex., as a minority investor and brand ambassador. Following in the footsteps of Pharrell Williams at G-Star Raw and Miranda Kerr at Kora Organics, he’s the latest celebrity to go beyond being the face of a brand.
The 45-year-old Texas native, who is an avid golfer, has become accustomed to his new role. Last June, he pulled the black polo shirt that Criquet first gave him in 2011 to wear on national television in an interview with “The Today Show.” Three months later, at New York Fashion Week, he sported a striped version from the company at a dinner hosted by Grace Coddington and Calvin Klein.
“We like to say our shirt is a high-performance shirt for the 19th hole, whether it is a bar or a place where you’re most at ease with your friends,” said Hobson Brown, Criquet’s cofounder, who also heads marketing.

Kids’ Brand Art & Eden Mixes Artists and Charity

It’s never too early to involve kids in art, fashion and charity.
Art & Eden, the children’s line started by a veteran maker of women’s contemporary fashion and private-label clothing, is bringing together creative works by artists and a mission to do philanthropic work. Launched on Jan. 25 at 130 specialty stores and major retailers such as Nordstrom in the U.S. and El Palacio de Hierro in Mexico, the New York-based company is a culmination of two years of research by Susan Correa, who previously ran a women’s line called Cooper & Ella and developed private label collections for retailers ranging from T.J. Maxx to Saks Fifth Avenue.
“It was a huge struggle for me to be able to leave two multimillion dollar industries and get on board with Art & Eden,” she said. But she asked herself: “How can I make the business of fashion better?”
Correa’s first attempt at ethical fashion was a dud. She tried four natural dyes but they turned out lackluster. “One of the lessons I learned is that the product needs to be one that is incredibly appealing to the parent,” she said. She changed tack. “We built it as a collaboration of art from around the world.”

J Brand, Vrai & Oro, Gossamer Among Latest Deals Struck for Row DTLA

CRITICAL MASS: Activity at the Row DTLA appears to be gaining momentum, with several retail and office deals now in the pocket of the downtown Los Angeles redevelopment.
The market’s been closely watching the project, at 2 million square feet of space that’s in the midst of a reimagining a six-building portfolio built by the Southern Pacific Railroad originally as its rail yard in the Twenties. The properties, acquired in 2014 by New York real estate investment firm Atlas Capital Group and Square Mile Capital Management for a reported $ 357 million, includes the current headquarters and main factory of American Apparel. Brokerage and development firm Runyon Group is in charge of leasing up the project.
Among the list of new tenants is J Brand, which will take up 29,000 square feet of office space for its new headquarters, to be located in a two-story building and slated for a spring opening. Mitu, a digital media firm that began as a YouTube page and today works with Latino content makers, will take up another 13,000 square feet of office space there, also in the spring.

Appelate Court Tosses Out LVMH’s Claim Against Spoof Brand My Other Bag

GOOD HUMOR: LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton has lost its legal fight against spoof tote bag company My Other Bag. On Dec. 22, the United States court of appeals for the Second Circuit tossed out the luxury conglomerate’s appeal from a judgment of the United States District Court for New York State’s southern district.
In January 2016, Judge Jesse M. Furman had struck down the luxury conglomerate’s formal allegations of trademark dilution, violation of fair use, dilution by blurring, trademark infringement and copyright infringement. The firm first filed these claims against My Other Bag in 2014.
In its summary order, which affirmed the judgment of the district court, the Second Circuit said that “obvious differences in My Other Bag’s mimicking of Louis Vuitton’s mark, the lack of market proximity between the products at issue, and minimal, unconvincing evidence of consumer confusion compel a judgment in favor of My Other Bag on Louis Vuitton’s trademark infringement claim.”
On the trademark dilution claim, it said: “At the same time that they mimic Louis Vuitton’s designs and handbags in a way that is recognizable, they do so as a drawing on a product that is such a conscious departure from Louis Vuitton’s image of luxury—in combination with
