W Hotels Collaborates With Gigi Burris

PUT A LID ON IT: In the latest installment of the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s collaboration with the W Hotels, Gigi Burris has whipped up three Panama hats.
With a new hotel in Panama City, the company has turned to the New York designer to create a few toppers inspired by her travels. Made of naturally woven straw, the hats come in “The Canal,” a flat-brimmed fedora trimmed with a papaya-colored cotton grosgrain ribbon; “The Quera,” a wide flat brimmed hat with a heart-shaped crown, and “The Mangrove,” a safari-style short brim style with a crème-colored grosgrain ribbon and a peacock feather. Victoria’s Secret model Jasmine Tookes was among the first to sport one a few weeks back and she showed it off to her Instagram followers. Shoppers who don’t plan to fly to Panama City any time soon, can find the three styles online via the W Store. Retails prices range from $ 395 to $ 495.
The newly minted Duchess of Sussex has helped to fuel the trend by being photographed in one at various events this summer. At Wimbledon last month, she carried her Madewell version in the Royal Box with the Duchess of Cambridge. Even North Korean leader

Chinatown Market Collaborates With Good Charlotte

Chinatown Market has jumped into the musician merchandise category.
The Los Angeles-based streetwear brand also runs a consulting agency and has done merchandise work for Warner Music Group and Live Nation, but this is the first time it is lending the Chinatown Market name and logo to product.
Mike Cherman, founder of Chinatown Market, said he was good friends with Josh Madden, brother to Good Charlotte’s Joel and Benji Madden, and after finding out Joel was a fan of the brand, they decided to team up.
“Growing up I was a fan of Good Charlotte,” Cherman said. “And eventually we were at a dinner and just said we have to do this. It was good to work on something this scale, and it’s something to be said for Good Charlotte. They did a BAPE collaboration and now we are reintroducing them on a whole different platform.”
The first drop from the collection includes a T-shirt, hoodie and stickers that retail in different packages ranging from $ 10 to $ 105. They are available to purchase on Good Charlotte’s web site. Good Charlotte will release its seventh studio album, “Generation Rx,” on Sept. 14 and will go on a North American tour this fall. Cherman said this will

CDLP Collaborates With Tom of Finland Foundation

CDLP is embarking on its second collaboration.
The Stockholm-based men’s underwear brand, which was founded in 2016 by Christian Larson and Andreas Palm, is working with the Tom of Finland Foundation on a capsule collection of underwear inspired by Touko Laaksonen, the artist, whose pseudonym is Tom of Finland, who created some of the most memorable imagery of gay contemporary culture. CDLP previously worked with Swedish film director Jonas Åkerlund.
“On our side there was a strong respect for Tom of Finland and the Foundation from way before we even started CDLP. The honesty in Tom’s work has a deep story to be connected to,” said Palm, the chief executive officer at CDLP. “A story of pure talent, but also the impact that Tom’s work has had on gay culture, equality, and freedom in general. That’s something that’s important to CDLP. Tom impacted a shift during his generation and is moving the needle still to this day.”
Palm said they designed underwear based on pieces that Laaksonen designed in his work that were never produced. They’ve produced the underwear, which will retail from $ 60 to $ 85, with lyocell, a biodegradable fiber. The collection, which will be out in late September, will be packaged

Richard Quinn Collaborates With Liberty on an Accessories Collection

ROUND TWO: Richard Quinn has put his personal, colorful touch on Liberty London’s floral prints for a limited-edition accessories collection that will launch on July 11. Quinn and Liberty first collaborated in 2017 after Quinn used a Liberty print for his graduate show. The following year, the department store hosted Quinn’s runway debut.
The designer had free access to Liberty’s extensive archive, which consists of 45,000 prints. He chose prints from the Sixties, Seventies and the Nineties and modernized them, magnifying and mashing them up on tote bags, purses, cardholders and scarves.
Quinn also reintroduced the Liberty logo in his own cursive handwriting during his spring 2018 show and it has been printed and embroidered on the front of his accessories collection. Prices range from 70 pounds for a silk scarf to 695 pounds for Liberty’s signature Marlborough tote with Quinn’s distorted prints.
“We, at Liberty, have always prided ourselves on discovering and fostering new talent, as our founder Arthur Lasenby Liberty sourced artists and craftsmen from around the world,” said Amelia Hornblow, director of product at Liberty.
“We are thrilled to be working with Richard Quinn, a great talent, whose collection and designs feature color and print that embody the Liberty Spirit.”

His commercial client list includes Chanel, Dior, Tiffany & Co., Topshop, Joyce Hong Kong, Harrods, Estée Lauder and the V&A Museum. He has also produced portraits of some celebrities including Cate Blanchett, Dita Von Teese, Catherine Deneuve and Linda Evangelista.

Craig Green Collaborates With Grenson on Footwear Range, Plans to Expand Into Accessories

LONDON — Craig Green has teamed with the British footwear brand Grenson on a capsule range as he prepares to stride fully into the accessories space later this year.
“The basis of the new collection is molding and creating volume and excess within garments,” Green said. The designer’s theme of molding also informed his footwear design as he aimed to create shoes from metal.
“When we started working on the shoes with Grenson, it was almost the idea of attempting to make the shoes look like toy soldier shoes,” Green said.
Green wasn’t given a brief and had creative freedom to design. He said he enjoyed adding his own twist to the brand’s classic style.
“It was as if you took them out of a mold and you are left with the central ridge on the toe-line — that kind of idea,” Green said. He said he added excess fold flaps to cover the laces, which resulted in a protective and workwear aesthetic that suited the brand’s ethos. Most of his collections are based around, uniform, workwear and functionality.
Green had dabbled in shoe design in the past. As a student, he created an eight-style range for Bally of Switzerland and he also collaborated with

Maison Margiela Collaborates With Mackintosh on Trenchcoats

ALL WHITE: Maison Margiela’s iconic white lab coat is ready to hit the streets.
The Paris-based fashion house has collaborated with outerwear maker Mackintosh to create two exclusive trenchcoat designs for its spring 2018 men’s wear collection, including a white version featuring signature details such as white horn buttons and four stitches on the back.
Martin Margiela settled on the white lab coat as a staff uniform shortly after founding the maison in 1988, as part of the brand’s collective identity. It is worn by everyone from artistic director John Galliano to the house’s interns.
The second design is inspired by the Mackintosh archives, with the collar and cuffs reworked using the so-called décortiqué process that Galliano explored in his spring Artisanal collection.

The waterproof coats are made from rubberized fabrics, with all seams taped and glued to create a seamless effect. The two numbered limited-edition coats will be available from December in Maison Margiela boutiques, Mackintosh flagships and selected multibrand stores.

The men’s retail company has worked with Chris Paul, Robert Geller, Mark McNairy and Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi, and now has teamed with Wooster to create a capsule collection that’s available exclusively on Five Four’s e-commerce site and subscription service.
The collection was inspired by time Wooster spent in Los Angeles. He’s designed reversible jackets with reflective fabric, leopard print sweaters, plaid bomber jackets and frayed jeans.
“We’ve taken really key, basic items that I think are essential to every man’s wardrobe, like striped oxford cloth shirts for instance, and given them a slight twist,” Wooster said. “The hope is that when a guy puts this on, he stops and thinks, ‘Hey, someone really thought about this for me.’”
Andres Izquieta, co-chief executive officer and creative director of Five Four, said he’s been following Wooster for years and thought the Five Four customer would appreciate his aesthetic.

Cockpit USA Collaborates With Stylist Mike B.

Mike B., whose real name is Mike Barnett, has teamed with Cockpit USA, the heritage outerwear brand.
For Barnett, a celebrity stylist whose client list includes A$ AP Ferg, Sean Combs, the Migos and Swizz Beatz, this partnership is a full-circle moment.
He met Jacky Clyman, the owner of Cockpit USA, in the Nineties via fax and e-mail while working on The Bad Boy Entertainment leather jackets that Avirex, which was once owned by Cockpit USA, produced. They met again in New York and Barnett pitched his brand concept to Clyman, who obliged.
“During the Nineties, Avirex and Cockpit helped hip-hop culture in terms of outerwear. If you follow hip-hop, there are different eras of leather jackets. In the late 2000s, it was all about having a good Avirex or Cockpit bomber.”
Barnett has worked with the Cockpit design team to create a collection of outerwear, which includes a G1 Top Gun bomber with a removable collar, a shearling coat and a longer shearling style with a belt. The coats, which retail from $ 900 to $ 2,100, are all black with Cockpit’s signature map lining. The capsule is available now on Cockpit’s e-commerce site and Mike B.’s site.

TRUNK SHOW: Upping its game, Roland-Garros has tapped Louis Vuitton to create two bespoke monogram canvas trunks designed 
to transport and protect the Suzanne Lenglen and Musketeers’ trophies that are awarded each year to the French Open women’s and men’s tennis champions.
Featuring the house’s signature brass corners and lock, the vertical cases were handcrafted in Vuitton’s historic workshops in Asnières, with a terra-cotta interior evoking the clay surface of the tennis courts of the historic Roland-Garros venue in Paris where the tournament takes place, as well as white V-shaped stripes at the front nodding to the lines on a tennis court.
The producer of the precious cups, meanwhile, is Maison Mellerio, the world’s oldest jeweler and goldsmith, based on Paris’ Rue de la Paix.
Adding an arty spin to the hook-up, Vik Muniz, the visual artist behind the 2017 Roland-Garros poster, will customize the cases in the run-up to the women’s and men’s singles finals.

Candice Huffine Collaborates With Fortnight

Candice Huffine has partnered with Fortnight on a capsule collection.
The curvy model, who discovered the Canadian-based lingerie brand while on a photo shoot, worked directly with Fortnight’s founder Christina Remenyi on a six-piece collection. This is the first time Fortnight has partnered with a model or celebrity on a product.
“Before Fortnight, I never found a lingerie brand that I was so connected with,” said Huffine. “I found that lingerie for me was either very basic or very lacy and racy. I always craved something more, so when I found Fortnight it was an ‘a-ha’ moment.”
The line includes a longline wireless bra, balconette, slip, bodysuit, high-waist bottom and bikini coming in two exclusive prints that were created by Toronto artist Danielle Suppa. The collection, which will be available on Fortnight’s e-commerce site and specialty boutiques this July, will retail from $ 52 to $ 178.
Fortnight is known for its diverse sizing, but Remenyi said Huffine’s involvement and insight helped her expand the range even more with four additional bra sizes (36E, 34F and 30–32G) and move into XXL for bodysuits and slips.
“There is so much negative messaging out there in the lingerie world,” said Remenyi, who started the line in 2010. “It’s really

ENDLESS SUMMER: Next time Karl Lagerfeld heads down to Saint-Tropez, he will be able to don beachwear bearing his own likeness — even if he generally favors a white suit for his Riviera jaunts.
The Karl Lagerfeld brand has collaborated with French luxury swimwear maker Vilebrequin on a limited-edition capsule collection of eight items that includes men’s and women’s swimwear, beachwear and beach accessories.
The two brands have a common shareholder: G-III Apparel Group. G-III, headed by Morris Goldfarb, owns Vilebrequin and has a 19 percent stake in the Lagerfeld label.
The new line will go on sale in May at select Karl Lagerfeld stores, Vilebrequin stores and on their respective e-commerce sites, with prices ranging from 60 euros to 210 euros, or $ 65 to $ 225 at current exchange.
Inspired by iconic Rivieras and coastlines, the pieces come in a vibrant azure shade set off with pops of graphic black and white, and feature Lagerfeld’s instantly recognizable silhouette printed in black in lieu of a logo.
For men, they include a polo shirt and two styles of swim shorts: one fitted with a flat-belt waist, and the other inspired by classic Seventies silhouettes. For women, the offer consists of a bikini, a tunic and swim

Nike Collaborates With Emerging Designers on Elements of Style Project

NikeLab is turning its attention to up-and-coming designers.
The brand tasked Stavros Karelis, the founder of Machine-A, a boutique in London, with selecting five new designers to create looks based on the Air VaporMax sneaker, a new style that will be released on March 26, which is Air Max Day.
He chose Azar Rajabi, a Canadian designer who has interned for Damir Doma and Prabal Gurung; Shizhe He, a Chinese designer based in New York, and Central Saint Martins graduates Liam Johnson, Paula Canovas and Wanbing Huang.
Each of these designers used the VaporMax as a starting point for their creations.
Shizhe He utilized plastic packaging film that’s typically used to protect furniture during transit to build a dress. Rajabi used pearlized Neoprene mesh and texturized vinyl for her hooded creation. Johnson played with buoyancy and lightness for his abstract piece that’s meant to mimic clouds. Canovas worked with nylons and knots. Huang built a headpiece and full-length bodysuit inspired by the woven Flyknits.
NikeLab recently partnered with Riccardo Tisci to redesign the Nike Air Max 97 and they also opened a NikeLab store within Bergdorf Goodman’s men’s department.

Red Valentino Opens in Hong Kong, Collaborates With Walky Land

Red Valentino is opening its new store in Harbour City, Hong Kong today with a special artist collaboration and capsule collection. Pierpaolo Piccioli, who developed the store concept with architect India Mahdavi, also enlisted artist Monika Forsberg, also known as Walky Land, for a special display — three heart-shaped works of art dedicated to love and creativity — and a capsule line.
It’s no coincidence that the store opens on Valentine’s Day. “It felt natural to base the whole collection around a love theme,” said Forsberg. “We decided to mix hearts and nature and birds — elements that I have in common with the brand. For inspiration, I went for a walk where I live. It’s romantic in a British Victorian way and the front gardens are full of florals even in the winter, which spills over into the street. I soaked up the vibe and then sat down and started drawing…. I drew a large pile of hearts and plants and birds whilst listening to an audio book and planning my youngest son’s birthday party. I work in a room facing our garden. I used marker pens and gouache a little bit of ink and some coloring pens.”
The capsule collection, available in select Red Valentino stores, and online, launches in the San

Fourth of November Collaborates With New York Knicks on Capsule Collection

Kareem “Biggs” Burke continues to pull from his roots for his apparel endeavors.
The Roc-A-Fella records cofounder, who owns the denim brand Fourth of November, has teamed with the New York Knicks on a limited-edition capsule collection in celebration of the basketball team’s 70th anniversary.
“As a real New Yorker it’s an absolute honor to collaborate with the Knicks,” said Burke.
The collection includes a classic varsity jacket made of Melton wool and lambskin, and a snapback. Both feature the Fourth of November logo along with ’70 and ’73, which indicate the years the Knicks won an NBA Championship. The jacket, which retails for $ 350, and the snapback, which retails for $ 46, will be sold exclusively at the Madison Square Garden team store. Only 70 pieces of each style will be produced.
When working with Roc-A-Fella, which was acquired by Def Jam in 2004, Burke helped grow Rocawear, the label’s streetwear brand, into an almost $ 700 million business, and although he had no plans of reentering the fashion business, when a childhood friend introduced him to Fourth of November, which was founded by Carlos Rodriguez, he joined the team to help them grow the company. The line, which consists of denim and varsity jackets,

Timo Weiland Collaborates With Jaboneria Marianella for Limited-Edition Soaps

TINY BUBBLES: Timo Weiland has teamed with Jaboneria Marianella’s mother-son team of Marianella Febres-Cordero and David Foote for an assortment of limited-edition soaps. Inspired by Weiland’s fall collection, the eight fragrant vegetable-based soaps are packaged in colorful patterned wrappers like chevron. The $ 16 Jaboneria Marianella/Timo Weiland soaps have a run of 500 units.
Shoppers can find the special-edition items at the new Jaboneria Marinaella Soap Bar at the Gansevoort Market, which is housed at 353 West 14th Street in Manhattan. Weiland and Foote became friends more than 10 years ago. Foote said, “Timo’s designs have always inspired me. I love how he plays with masculine silhouettes and concepts, and applies them to women’s wear.”
Having worked in fashion illustration, Foote said he plans to collaborate with other designers going forward. His drawings can be found in Poppy King’s book “The A to Z of Lipstick,” which was published earlier this month. Foote said, ”I love the idea of pairing up a fashion designer and their vision with ours, the combination of ideas really sparks something unique.”
Weiland’s mother, Alison, has been part of his company’s story from the beginning. The designer said it was inspiring to work side-by-side with another mother-son team. “Keeping

The Hill-Side Collaborates With Toms

The Hill-Side has teamed with Toms.
The Brooklyn-based men’s wear line, which is known for its use of Japanese fabrics, has created a capsule collection for Toms that’s available today.
“We started working with Toms on this project over a year ago and the original idea was to create a collection of our favorite Toms footwear silhouettes in our signature Japanese fabrics,” said Emil Corsillo, cofounder of The Hill-Side. “This idea quickly expanded to include kids’ shoes in the same fabrics, The Hill-Side accessories in an exclusive printed fabric, and three styles of Toms eyewear.”
The footwear assortment features three of Toms signature silhouettes that are made in The Hill-Side’s Japanese fabrics including a lightweight Indigo Sashiko, navy cotton herringbone tweed and a gray cotton herringbone tweed.
The eyewear line includes three styles that feature hand-finished tortoiseshell acetate frames with a fabric inlay made from The Hill-Side’s custom big halftone floral print. That same fabric is used for the line of accessories, which includes pocket squares, scarves, bow ties, neckties and kids’ ties, which is a first for The Hill-Side.
The look book for the collection was shot in Brooklyn and features Andrew Tarlow of Marlow & Sons, Niyi Okuboyejo of Post-Imperial, Nick Carnevale of

The Eighth Collaborates With Richard Phillips on Underwear Collection

UNDERWEAR AS ART: The Eighth, a men’s luxury underwear brand, has worked with New York artist Richard Phillips on two limited-edition slim boxer styles made from silk twill.
The underwear, which will retail for $ 175, features prints inspired by two of Phillips’ works, Weed II and Engine. One style is printed with a faded weed fauna print and the other is covered with engine imagery.

DiFerdinando Collaborates with Kids of Ronald McDonald House for a Cause

Handbag designer Danielle DiFerdinando participated in some child’s play but for a serious cause — the Ronald McDonald House. At a party she hosted for the children and mothers at the Ronald McDonald House on Manhattan’s Upper East Side last February, “We had the kids participate in a contest to sketch a tote bag based on what made them happy ­— anything from animals, nature, superheroes, or love,” recalled DiFerdinando. “We combined the sketches from the children and came up with a tote design. The kids were so happy to see their designs come to life.”
The tote, now available on macys.com and danielle-nicole.com, retails for $ 70. A percentage of the sales will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House New York, which provides a temporary “home-away-from-home” for pediatric cancer patients and their families. “It makes you stop and think what is really important in life — health and family,” said DiFerdinando, designer of the Danielle Nicole handbag line and long-time volunteer at Ronald McDonald House.
