Christopher Martinez Joins Olivela

Christopher Martinez has joined Olivela as executive creative director.
In his new role, he will have creative oversight across different departments, working to define Olivela’s retail concept.
Olivela has a mission-focused luxury-shopping destination. Launched in June with 12 designer brands, the site – which now has over 30 designer brands – has a mandate to provide 40 percent of the proceeds from purchases to charity to help kids around the world.
Martinez was formerly digital creative director of Barneys New York, where he oversaw the redesign of Barneys.com and TheWindow.Barneys.com. Previous positions include senior art director of T: The New York Times magazine, art director of Esquire, as well as London-based publications Time Out and NME.
Olivela was founded by Stacey Boyd, a former educator who also founded Schoola, which sells gently used merchandise to support schools in need. The company in August named Ariel Foxman as its chief brand officer.
Boyd said of Martinez: “His expertise will guide, focus and distinguish Olivela’s creative identity as it continues to expand and develop in exciting new directions.”

Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos Launch a Townhouse Concept Store

FRIENDLY TAKEOVER: Best known for their artsy approach to fashion, design duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos have taken over a three-story townhouse in South Kensington, as part of the Brompton Design District partnership with brands, which runs within the London Design Festival.
The duo set up a art and design space, filled with quirky pieces from their friends, who happen to be artists, as well. The objects are exclusive collaborations, all available for purchase, and are shown alongside the brand’s ready-to-wear collections, including spring-summer 2018, which debuted on Sunday and will be available for pre-order.
This is a premier of sorts for the brand, which doesn’t have its own brick-and-mortar.
“Yes, this is a suggestion of what [our store] might look like, but we are actually excited by the idea that this is temporary and that it gives a sense of ‘see it now or you might miss something,’” explained Pilotto at the opening on Sunday. Added De Vos: “We really don’t like the word pop-up, but we’ve been using it because this is a five-week-stunt, and it is a concept that works for us. There are so many different aspects to us and our work, and this is a great way

Christopher Kane Cuts Ribbon on Bond Street Pop-Up in London

ROCKING OUT: “Surreal” was the adjective Christopher Kane chose to describe the opening of his first shop on Bond Street, a pop-up that will remain in place until the end of the year.
“I grew up knowing this street, seeing all the big brands on it. I’ve had to pinch myself now that I’m here. It feels very strange – but brilliant,” said Kane during an opening party in London on Wednesday night.
As reported, the space at 15 Old Bond Street is stocking key show and commercial ready-to-wear and accessories, and will also offer exclusive pieces made for the store. Kane’s flagship on Mount Street remains open.
Kane said he likes the idea of being able “to meet and greet” potential new customers in the Bond Street space, which has in the past been home to fellow Kering brand Bottega Veneta, and to Tod’s.
He was chatting in front of a display of marbled-surface Crocs studded with chunky, colored or sparkling rocks, some natural, others lab-grown. All of them would have made Pebbles Flintstone swoon.
“The Crocs are doing so well and we’re going to continue to collaborate with the company,” said Kane, whose decision to put Crocs on the runway caused many front-row guests to raise their

Christopher Kane, Central Saint Martins Students Reimagine ‘Beauty and the Beast’

DISNEY FOR ADULTS: Disney is giving its adult fans a chance to relive their childhoods with a series of designer collaborations marking its new adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast.”
Christopher Kane is among Disney’s most popular collaborators, having just launched an extensive collection of ready-to-wear and accessories inspired by the new film.
As a self-confessed Disney fan and “animation snob” since childhood, the designer said he had always been looking for the right opportunity to partner with Disney.
“I hated ‘Tom and Jerry,’ I hated all that crap. I only watched Disney as a child, and ‘Beauty and the Beast’ was even more of an exception because Belle was not a princess; she was a normal girl, she was smart, she was an outsider, so that’s why I had an immediate attraction,” said Kane, who celebrated the collection launch at his Mount Street flagship on Thursday.
The new, “more mature” adaptation of the film featuring Emma Watson as Belle presented an opportunity for the designer to reimagine the children’s classic into a collection for adults.

He re-created the rose motif in myriad ways, printing it on simple T-shirts or sweatshirts with sleeve cutouts, incorporating it on a macramé lace minidress or adding oversize floral

Christopher Lloyd

Christopher Lloyd


Christopher Lloyd (Christo) was one of the greatest English gardeners of the twentieth century, perhaps the finest plantsman of them all. His creation is the garden at Great Dixter in East Sussex, and it is a tribute to his vision and achievement that, after his death in 2006, the Heritage Lottery Fund made a grant of £4 million to help preserve it for the nation. This enjoyable and revealing book – the first biography of Christo – is also the story of Dixter from 1910 to 2006, a unique unbroken history of one English house and one English garden spanning a century. It was Christo’s father, Nathaniel, who bought the medieval manor at Dixter and called in the fashionable Edwardian architect, Lutyens, to rebuild the house and lay out the garden. And it was his mother, Daisy, who made the first wild garden in the meadows there. Christo was born at Dixter in 1921. Apart from boarding school, war service and a period at horticultural college, he spent his whole life there, constantly re-planting and enriching the garden, while turning out landmark books and exhaustive journalism. Opinionated, argumentative and gloriously eccentric, he changed the face of English gardening through his passions for meadow gardening, dazzling colours and thorough husbandry. As the baby of a family of six – five boys and a girl – Christo was stifled by his adoring mother. Music-loving and sports-hating, he knew the Latin names of plants before he was eight. This fascinating book reveals what made Christo tick by examining his relationships with his generous but scheming mother, his like-minded friends (such as gardeners Anna Pavord and Beth Chatto) and his colleagues (including his head gardener, Fergus Garrett, a plantsman in Christo’s own mould).
