Sergio Tacchini Changes Owners, Names Dao-Yi Chow Global Creative Director

Sergio Tacchini wants to get reacquainted.
The Italian sportswear brand has changed hands and named Dao-Yi Chow of Public School as its global creative director.
Tacchini, which was founded by the Italian tennis star of the same name in 1966, is now owned by Stefano Maroni, an entrepreneur and chief executive officer of licensing firm GMI USA, along with private equity firm Twin Lakes Capital and B. Riley Principal Investments. Terms of the deal, which closed today after some seven months of negotiations, were not disclosed.
After filing for bankruptcy in 2007, the brand was sold to Hong Kong financier Billy Ngok in 2008. In 2013, Ngok formed a partnership for the brand with Wintex Hong Kong, through Wintex Italia, and sold the U.S. license to Maroni and GMI USA in December 2018.
Earlier this year, Maroni opened a pop-up with record producer and executive Chris Ivery to relaunch Sergio Tacchini in the U.S. and Canada under the name STLA. In addition to a core collection of tracksuits, polos and sweatshirts, which Maroni said had a “very positive” reaction, the brand also created capsule collections with Stampd and Barbie, the latter of which is still available online. There were also collaborations with Band of

Vera Wang to Introduce Bridal Jewelry With Chow Tai Fook

SHANGHAI — Bridal doyenne Vera Wang is expanding her universe again, linking up this time with Hong Kong-headquartered Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group to produce a fine jewelry collection catering to the modern Chinese bride.
“Vera Wang Love” will debut on Oct. 19 in Chow Tai Fook Shanghai stores before expanding to other key cities including Beijing, Chengdu and Hong Kong. It builds on top of her existing offerings in the space via “Simply Vera Vera Wang” jewelry, as well as deals for homeware, and her core ready-to-wear and gowns business.
The collection will span 18-karat gold and platinum engagement rings, wedding bands and fine fashion jewelry, with a starting price point of about $ 400.
Traditionally speaking, gold and jade usually adorn brides in China, but the two sides said couples in greater numbers are starting to “incorporate diamond jewelry into traditional engagements.”
Wang has found a powerful partner in Chow Tai Fook, one of the world’s largest jewelers with more than 2,600 points of sale across China. The group’s other brands include Chow Tai Fook T Mark, Hearts on Fire, Monologue and SoinLove.
Vera Wang counts three boutiques in mainland China — in Beijing, Shanghai and Chengdu.
“The sophistication, quality, technical capabilities and vast consumer reach of

Chow Tai Fook Expands U.S. Footprint With Hawaii DFS Store

HONG KONG–Expanding its U.S. footprint, Chinese jeweler Chow Tai Fook has teamed up with travel retailer DFS to open a boutique in Hawaii in the duty free retailer’s T Galleria.
The agreement was revealed Monday and when it opens its doors next month, the unit will be Chow Tai Fook’s second American store. Last November, the brand debuted in Macy’s in Manhattan. The 970-square foot store in Honolulu is well placed to capitalize on the Hawaiian capital’s popularity as a wedding and honeymoon destination, the two companies said.
“With over 50 years of experience in Hawaii, we are confident that T Galleria’s reputation as the world traveler’s preferred destination for luxurious shopping will attract many new customers to Chow Tai Fook,” Philippe Schaus, DFS Group chief executive officer, said.
A DFS spokeswoman said the Hawaii boutique was the only joint operation the two firms are planning for the time being.
Aside from the usual Chow Tai Fook assortment, the new store will carry some Hearts of Fire branded diamond and wedding jewelry. Chow Tai Fook bought the Boston-based jeweler in 2014. The Hong Kong-listed company is one of the largest jewelers in the world with over 2,300 points of sale across greater China, Singapore, the

Public School’s Chow and Osborne: Moonlighting No More

Public School is back in session — during fashion week, that is. On Sunday, Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne will return to the calendar from a high-profile hiatus during which they showed off-season, in deference to their second job.
In May 2015, the designers were famously enlisted by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton to head up design at DKNY. Heirs to Donna Karan and Jane Chung, the partners were recruited on the strength of the uber cool brand they launched with men’s wear in 2008, all street-smart, aspirational New York attitude. Having grown up as style-savvy kids in New York, they felt a certain affinity for DKNY. As co-creative directors, they would shepherd the brand into a new era of relevance while soaking up knowledge from one of the world’s great luxury groups that they could apply to their own, still nascent business.
We’ve all heard of the best-laid plans. Little more than a year after Osborne and Chow arrived at DKNY, G-III’s Morris Goldfarb bought Donna Karan International from LVMH in a move that took everyone by surprise, including the designers. Not surprisingly, G-III’s plans for DKNY were very different from those of LVMH, and in December the designers left company.

Mini Pig Wakes From Nap To Chow Down On Ice Cream

It should really be illegal to be woken up from a nap — unless there’s food involved.

And thank goodness there is in Pickle’s case.

In the video above, the mini pig’s human wakes him up from a slumber — a move that would ordinarily be inexcusable except the human comes bearing ice cream. Pickle then tries the frosty treat for the very first time.

Watch Pickle mosey on over to the ice cream and seriously nom on the dessert.

We get you Pickle, we’d be pretty darn excited if we woke up to beautiful sweets dangling in our faces.

Editor’s note: There has been no shortage of controversy surrounding the ownership of these micro pigs. According to Best Friends Animal Society, many who chose to adopt micro pigs may not realize that the animal will eventually outgrow its miniature size, and will likely end up abandoned in already overrun animal shelters. If you’re looking for a pet, visit your local shelter or Petfinder.com.

In regards to food, while some human treats can okay for pets, others are unsafe for animals. Be sure to take a look at the ASPCA’s toxic and non-toxic plant database before treating your four-legged friends.

The Travelers Guide to Cheap, Healthy CookingOn a 26-month backpacking journey that took him through Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and Germany, Mike Hedley had an epiphany he was spending too much of his adventure money on food. Surely there was a cheaper-and healthier-alternative to the two-minute noodles, canned pastas, and other convenience foods he saw fellow travelers resort to. Hedley, a chef, began to develop simple, healthy, inexpensive recipes that even the most inexperienced cook can create on the road. Ingredient lists are short, and no exotic or hard-to-procure items are required. These recipes are designed for the most basic equipment travelers will likely have access to. For example, if you lack measuring spoons, just turn to the conversion chart in the front of the book and youll find the equivalents given in pinches, dashes, and handfuls. Recipes such as Darwin Salad, Vegetable Omelet, Barbeque Steak Sandwich, Tuna Burger, Easiest Chili, Smashed Potatoes, and Banana Rice Pudding please kids as well as adult travelers. To keep your palette interested, most recipes offer a few simple variations. For easy selection, recipes in each section are arranged in order of cost and effort involved, from cheapest and easiest to more elaborate and expensive.
