Vivienne Westwood, Burberry Unite Punk and Tradition With Collaboration

CHECKMATE: Vivienne Westwood and Burberry have lifted the veil on their collaboration, with the release of their joint campaign that’s filled with an array of new and old faces dressed in head-to-toe vintage Burberry check.
Shot by David Sims, the campaign features a series of raw, candid portraits that have a whiff of Nineties nostalgia.
Kate Moss poses in a check shirt and matching high-waisted pants; Sistren, a group that creates podcasts about the stories of queer black women, are in mini kilts, knee-high socks and bucket bags all re-created in Burberry check, while musician Leonard Emmanuel wears an oversize T-shirt with the slogan “Cool Earth has a plan to save the rainforest.”

The idea for the limited-edition collaboration, Riccardo Tisci’s first, was to take a unisex approach and create a “union of punk and tradition” by reinventing some of Westwood’s most famous pieces — from berets, to lace-up platform shoes and kilts — using a vintage variation of the Burberry check.
Burberry’s chief creative officer and Westwood also came together to support the nonprofit organization Cool Earth. Westwood plans to customize four T-shirts to be auctioned off with funds going toward supporting Cool Earth.

Charlotte McKinney Talks Wolf & Whistle Collaboration and Learning Not to Compare Herself to Other People

CONFIDENTLY SPEAKING: Model and actress Charlotte McKinney is trying her hand at lingerie with a capsule collection for Wolf & Whistle.
Many know the influencer for her roles in “Baywatch,” “Flatliners,” and ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” but designer is a new moniker. “I have been looking for a lingerie line to collaborate with. It’s something that has always been a big part of my life — underwear. For me, it was kind of a no-brainer,” McKinney said. “This was the first time I had free creative control and not just being a model walking on a shoot. They were my pieces and my vision.”
Offered in sizes 2 to 12, and 32 to 36 B through G, the collection is meant to send a message of body confidence, she said. “Any girl of any size can put this line on and feel sexy and feel good. It is definitely an empowering kind of statement.” she said.
But keeping things really simple was the toughest part. “I wanted to just strip it down and keep it really clean and nice,” McKinney said. “People always want more and more [details.] For me, with lingerie, I think less is more.”
Retailing under $ 60, the 20-piece Charlotte

Mary Katrantzou on Her Unlikely Collaboration With Victoria’s Secret

In the decade since starting her namesake brand, Mary Katrantzou has designed everything from sneakers to packaging for beauty products. One thing she’d never designed? Bras. So it came as a particular surprise when she got the call from Victoria’s Secret asking her to collaborate on a collection to be presented tonight at the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion show.

“It’s so unexpected, it’s so interesting,” Katrantzou said on Wednesday night at The Plaza in New York at one of the many 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion pre-game events, including the unveiling of the Swarovski-made Fantasy bra on Monday evening (also at The Plaza). “Sometimes you have certain things you want to happen and you manifest to happen and this something that came out of nowhere.…That conversation [with Victoria’s Secret] was interesting, just because of the values we both share about empowering women.”

Katrantzou said she was especially compelled to work with the lingerie giant to collaborate on the technical aspect of designing women’s underpinnings. “That was the exciting part. You always think of the anatomy of a woman when you design and how you create a second skin for the woman,” she said. “Perfecting the fit, you want

Sabyasachi Unveils L’Oréal Paris, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Collaboration

Designer and Indian celebrity favorite Sabyasachi Mukherjee has dipped into cosmetics with beauty giant L’Oreal Paris, working with actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for the 21-piece collection, which is now available for sale online.
While the makeup is positioned as a festive collection, Sabyasachi wrote when debuting the line on Instagram late on Monday evening that he wanted the range to feel classic and simple.
“For me, classic is iconic, because classic is unforgettable,” the designer said. “The whole world is moving towards a state of effective simplicity where classic will lead the way. Makeup will be more about a stronger, lasting identity. A winged black liner with a bold red mouth offset with a simple saree and wind-swept hair is perhaps an iconic Indian beauty look.”

Lela Rose Broadens Range Via Bridal Jewelry Collaboration With Brilliant Earth

LELA SPARKLES: In a first for her company, Lela Rose has teamed with Brilliant Earth to create a collection of engagement rings and wedding bands.
Over the years, Rose has received her share of partnership proposals that missed the mark. “Diapers was definitely interesting,” Rose said. “And a very well-known soda company wanted us to do a collaboration. I was like, ‘Nooo.’ I just feel so strongly about what that does to your health. To me, that would almost be like a cigarette company saying, ‘Can you do this?’”
Brilliant Earth’s commitment to ethically and responsibly sourced diamonds won over the designer. The fine jewelry company’s use of recycled metals and conflict-free diamonds were other bonuses, as well as its support of communities where products are sourced. “That finally felt like the right company to partner with so we’re really excited about it,” Rose said.
The new Brilliant Earth X Lela Rose Bridal Jewelry collection will feature six engagement rings and two wedding bands, all in platinum, 14K rose gold, 18K white gold or 18K yellow gold. It will debut on Brilliant Earth’s site and the designer’s own on Sept. 27. Retail prices will range from $ 2,190 to $ 4,390. The rings will also be

Riccardo Tisci Sets Collaboration With Vivienne Westwood at Burberry

LIVING INSPIRATION: Riccardo Tisci is set to work with one of his original design inspirations, Vivienne Westwood.
Burberry’s chief creative officer, who will unveil his first collection for Burberry in September, announced the Westwood collaboration on Instagram earlier today.
“Vivienne was one of the first designers who made me dream to become a designer,” Tisci wrote. “I am SO honored to announce a new Burberry collaboration with the original British Punk.”
The limited-edition collection will feature re-imagined signature styles from Burberry’s archive and it will launch in December 2018. Proceeds from the collaboration will support Cool Earth, a non-profit organization whose mission is to halt rainforest deforestation.
“When I first started at Burberry, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to approach her to do something. She is a rebel, a punk and unrivalled in her unique representation of British style, which has inspired so many of us. I am so incredibly proud of what we will be creating together.”
Tisci succeeded Christopher Bailey as chief creative officer at Burberry in March. He previously held the role of creative director at Givenchy, from 2005 to 2017.
In May, Tisci gave a sneak peak on Instagram of his creative direction for the British heritage house with

Mytheresa.com Delves Into Prada’s Archives for Latest Collaboration

ON FIRE: Mytheresa.com is further strengthening its ties with Prada, via the launch of an exclusive collaboration that’s set to drop on July 4.
This is the second time the Munich-based retailer has partnered with the Italian label, although this edition took a different approach. Instead of remaining in theme with the most recent collection, the retailer has delved into the Prada archives to revive some of its most recognizable prints.
The result is a 20-piece capsule that offers a more contemporary interpretation of Prada’s famous flame and banana prints from spring 2012.

The prints have been layered together onto a range of oversize sweatshirts, loose shirts and nylon totes. They also reference the streetwear direction of the label’s latest men’s wear outing.
“Our global customer loves to experiment with prints and bright colors, so we wanted to offer them something completely edgy,” said Tiffany Hsu, fashion and buying director at Mytheresa.com.
The range also includes accessories such as Nineties-inspired bucket hats and the brand’s famous flame wedge sandals, reworked in white and neon pink.

Saloni Lodha, Eugenie Niarchos Bring Obsessions to Life With New RTW Collaboration

TEAMWORK: Designer Saloni Lodha and fine jeweler Eugenie Niarchos have brought their mutual obsessions — traveling, bright colors, embellishments — to life via a new ready-to-wear capsule collection that will drop in September.
After continuously sharing ideas and meeting in different places across the globe, the longtime friends finally decided to create something together. “We would travel to Bombay and to Hong Kong, pick up references from each place and talk about all the different dresses we wanted to design and where each style would work,” said Lodha, whose label, Saloni is best known for its vibrant, printed dresses.
“I think I can get into Eugenie’s head and we love all the same things,” the designer added during the launch lunch at Dartmouth House in London’s Mayfair.
The capsule channels the same fantasy-filled aesthetic that Niarchos’ jewelry is known for: There are tiger prints that pay homage to her spirit animal, sequin dresses and midi skirts reflecting her love of mermaids and intricately embroidered pieces that reflect on both designers’ fascination with India.

Palace Skateboards Teams With Adidas for Court-Driven Apparel and Accessories Collaboration

For an elevated echelon of athletes, Wimbledon — with its grass courts, all-white dress code and strawberries and cream tradition — could be considered palatial in terms of sporting events. With 11 tournament wins, Roger Federer might be considered king.
In time for the crown jewel in London’s tennis circuit, the British skate label Palace has linked with Adidas to create a court-ready collection. The Adidas tennis by Palace collection debuts globally on July 3. To help get the message out, photographer Alasdair McLellan shot Palace-sponsored skateboarders Blondey McCoy, Lucien Clarke and Rory Milanes, along with Adidas-supported tennis players Sascha Zverev and 2017 Wimbledon women’s singles winner Garbiñe Muguruza.
The two brands have whipped up an assortment of items including a white terry tracksuit with removable sleeves, an engineered polo shirt, a graphic T-shirt and two styles of short. For the women’s range — a new frontier for Palace — there is a dress, a tank top with shorts, T-shirt and skirt. Each garment has a short legging in line with those worn by leading tennis stars.
Rounding out the assortment are accessories such as crew socks, and “no-show’ ones, a tie band, caps, wristbands, a white terry bucket hat, tennis balls and

Rimowa Unveils Second Installment of Fendi Collaboration

TAKE TWO: Rimowa has unveiled the second installment of its collaboration with Fendi.
The sleek aluminum cabin trolley, launched last November, will go on sale this month in two new colors, blue and red. The earlier black-and-yellow version was featured in Fendi’s travel-themed men’s ready-to-wear show in January.
Like its predecessor, the case displays the double F logo with a brushed effect, which changes depending on the light, as well as Cuoio Romano leather handles on the top and side, and a web belt that runs across the case. A new leather Airbag charm, shaped like a paper airplane, has Fendi’s signature Bag Bugs eyes.

The novelty is that the cases will be among the first to feature Rimowa’s new visual identity, unveiled earlier this year to coincide with the brand’s 120th anniversary. Personalization options include stickers and a customizable leather name tag that snaps onto the external belt.
Fendi, which like Rimowa belongs to French conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, was the first brand to collaborate with the German luggage maker following the arrival of luxury scion Alexandre Arnault as chief executive officer.
Rimowa has also made limited-edition suitcases with Supreme, Off-White and graphic design duo M/M Paris.

EXCLUSIVE: Beltology Unveils Collaboration With André Saraiva

Start-up accessory brand Beltology is taking things up a notch as they launch their first collaboration with graffiti artist and sometimes restaurateur and nightlife impresario, André Saraiva. The limited-edition collection, Beltology x André, launches exclusively in Barneys New York’s retail locations and online June 2 during the retailer’s thedropLA@barneys events.
Beltology founders Andrew Heffernan and Anna Lundberg were local fans of Saraiva’s now shuttered Café Henri in New York when they approached him with the idea.
“We were looking to collaborate, but we thought he might be too big for our brand. But when we started telling him our brand’s story and talking we could see that he represents so many things we want our brand to represent: colorful, fun and carefree, plus he is so incredibly charming,” Heffernan explained.
The result is a limited-edition capsule collection of five new colorways of Beltology’s signature stretch woven belts, each belt has a pin with custom artwork by Saraiva and features a leather-wrapped buckle and foil stamp of his graffiti artist alter-ego “Mr. A.”

Karlbots Groove On Place Vendôme for Launch of Makeup Collaboration

PARIS — Karl Lagerfeld and Australian beauty company ModelCo celebrated their makeup collaboration by unleashing a flashmob of 100 Karlbots on Paris landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, culminating with a dance performance on Place Vendôme on Tuesday night.
The so-called beauty butlers, decked out in black suits and metallic helmets in Lagerfeld’s likeness, performed to Blondie’s “Rapture” before filing into the Hôtel d’Evreux, where Karl Lagerfeld chief executive officer Pier Paolo Righi and ModelCo ceo Shelley Sullivan welcomed guests in a space bathed in flattering pink light.

Products including ModelCo’s signature Lip Lights range, featuring a built-in LED light and mirror, were on display. The line launched globally on May 14 online and in selected stores including Nordstrom and Galeries Lafayette, with products featuring Lagerfeld’s silhouette reported to be among the early best-sellers.
“It is truly for the beauty junkie,” Sullivan said of the one-off collection. “We call them illuminated beauty because they illuminate in some way: they either light up, or they make you shine, but I think mainly the biggest excitement is taking something to the world that has been ever so popular and collectible.”

Paul Smith Celebrates Tom Hingston’s Music Career With Collaboration

MAKING PROGRESS: A mutual love of music, art and design brought Sir Paul Smith and the graphic designer Tom Hingston together. The two joined forces to debut “Progress,” an exhibition and capsule collection celebrating Hingston’s 20 years in business.
Smith called the tie-in a “natural fix” given the close ties both creatives have with the music industry. Hingston is best known for working with musicians, including Grace Jones, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Lady Gaga, to create art for album covers as well as direct music videos.
To mark his professional milestone, Hingston wanted to work with Smith to create ways of experiencing music imagery and band merchandise.
“I said, wouldn’t it be great to not do T-shirts, but some super limited-edition, high-end band merchandise instead?” said Hingston. “The products take the imagery that everyone is so familiar with and give it a whole new lease of life.”
Among the standout products in the capsule are hand-painted leather jackets by Robert Del Naja of the band Massive Attack, a velvet embroidered bomber jacket by Nick Cave and acid-colored knitwear by Chemical Brothers. “One of my favorite album covers is ‘Born in the Echoes’ by the Chemical Brothers, so we’ve taken the artwork and

H&M Taps Moschino for 2018 Designer Collaboration

Moschino, who took the “cheap and chic” ethos to a literal level with a diffusion line of the same name, is getting back into the high-low game with an H&M collaboration unveiled in the wee hours of its annual Saturday night party during the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
The tie-up was made in a surprise reveal during the annual dance party at the Corona Yacht Club near the festival grounds, just after midnight. Designer Jeremy Scott, who presided over the star-studded party, his 12th turn at the festival, should have no trouble translating his Moschino designs into less expensive and just as cheerful versions for the Swedish fast-fashion retailer.
Every year, fashion lovers and bargain hunters alike anticipate news of H&M’s latest designer collaboration the way sports fans wait for draft day. It’s hard at this point, after 16 years of the high-low mash-ups — the first of which was with Karl Lagerfeld in 2004 — to say which collaboration has been the most spot-on. The Moschino effort may just be one of the more popular, judging from the way fans have snapped up Scott’s designs since he took over as creative director in 2013.

To celebrate the launch of its exclusive capsule with designer-of-the-moment Michael Halpern, the retailer invited the London Fashion Week crowd to the famous burger joint Five Guys.
It might not have been their usual hangout, but attendees — including Aymeline Valade, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Mary Charteris and performer Honey Dijon — seemed to enjoy the change of atmosphere and the refreshingly laid-back vibe.
They ate burgers at the silver tinsel-covered booths, drank beers and milkshakes, took selfies with the disco balls that were scattered across the venue and danced until the early hours — a rarity at fashion parties — to performances by the band HMLTD and DJ Kim Ann Foxman.

SECOND TIME AROUND: Uniqlo and J.W. Anderson are working on a second capsule collection, for spring 2018, in the wake of a successful fall launch, the Japanese fast fashion giant confirmed on Tuesday.
Uniqlo said it had seen a “positive response worldwide” for the fall 2017 line. The new collection will include items for men and women and will be available at all Uniqlo stores worldwide and through the retailer’s website.

The campaign for the first Uniqlo x J.W. Anderson collaboration. 

Anderson said the collaboration was “super-exciting” for him. “I am proud of it, and I think the pieces are incredibly well made. The line was also good bridge between the ideal of British classicism and my own brand,” he said.
Looking ahead, he said the spring collection “is about items that interlink with each other. It’s about layering this time. The idea is to mix and match things together.”

Victoria Beckham Partners With Reebok, Plans Collaboration for Next Year

BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM: With her new deal with Reebok, Victoria Beckham is the latest designer to link up with a major athletic brand.
The British-born designer let her 17.6 million Instagram followers know by posting a video of herself wearing the Club C sneakers outside of the company’s new Boston headquarters. She made the most of her first day on the scene, hosting an all-company meeting, touring the office, checking out the brand’s archives and holding initial design and planning meetings.
The choice of Beckham is meant to further Reebok’s message of women’s empowerment, which includes a roster of internationally known personalities like Ariana Grande, Gigi Hadid, Aly Raisman and Teyana Taylor. With four children and a multimillion-dollar business, Beckham would appear to have little time for exercise. Whippet-lean as she is, Beckham has spoken publicly about her daily two-hour morning workouts and healthy diet. Reebok executives undoubtedly approve of that regimen. The fact that Beckham’s designs are meant to relay a sense of strength, confidence and power also met their approval.

Rumblings of N.E.R.D’s impending album release will intensify with news that the experimental rock band — which includes Pharrell Williams, Shae Haley and Chad Hugo — is to release a new fashion collaboration.
The trio — largely dormant for the last decade — has collaborated with Illesteva on limited-edition sunglasses. They have designed oversize frames in four colorways. Each pair of glasses is embedded with a USB drive that houses exclusive short films directed by Christian Padron.
The glasses will launch at ComplexCon on Nov. 4, where the trio is scheduled to give their first live performance in three years.

N.E.R.D, founded in 1999, last released an album in 2010. Williams has since gone on to achieve a successful mainstream solo career — releasing the inescapable schoolyard song, “Happy,” in 2013 as part of the film soundtrack for “Despicable Me 2.” He has also concentrated on fashion, teaming with Chanel and G-Star Raw on assorted projects.
N.E.R.D’s Illesteva collaboration and ComplexCon performance no doubt add to evidence that the group is readying a musical return. Williams has repeatedly confirmed that the group is preparing a new album, though he’s declined to reveal a release date.

Julien Macdonald Unveils Collaboration with McDonald’s

WHAT A PAIR: McDonald’s U.K. has been looking to elevate its image. To do so, the fast food chain has asked for the helping hand of a London designer who also happens to bear the same name: Julien Macdonald.
Macdonald designed a limited-edition burger box for the McDonalds’ signature collection, a newly launched gourmet burger range. The box, which features a baroque-style gold print inspired by the designer’s signature shimmer, sequins and body-baring silhouettes, will be available at a series of showcase events held at McDonald’s stores across the U.K. Customers can buy the box by signing up to attend the showcase events.
“I drew inspiration from my fashion creations and iconic embellished red carpet dresses. This was translated into a gold, baroque, crystal-encrusted box, which is the perfect packaging for the luxury McDonald’s collection,” said the designer.
Macdonald will also reveal a special hand-embellished box at the McDonald’s Leicester square location, which will later be auctioned, with the proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald house charities.
“This is our first ever UK packaging collaboration, it’s a brave move and it’s like nothing we’ve ever done before,” said Emily Somers, vice president of marketing at McDonald’s. “It’s a great way to mark our nationwide launch of the signature

The Quay x Kylie capsule collection, composed of four limited-edition styles and 11 stockkeeping units, will be available July 11 on QuayAustralia.com and retailers worldwide for $ 75 to $ 80 retail.

Newbark and Theory Link for Footwear Collaboration

Los Angeles-based stylist sisters Maryam and Marjan Malakpour and their footwear brand Newbark have linked with Theory to design capsule collections beginning with a pre-fall collection launching next Thursday in Theory’s Melrose Avenue flagship.
“We met Andrew Rosen when we were selected as CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists last year, so that’s how the opportunity came up, and we’ve been working on this for the last six months,” Maryam said.
The Malakpours took their core loafer and sandal styles and used Theory’s ready-to-wear fabrics and leathers such as red velvet, zebra print calf hair, denim and Army green cotton retailing for $ 264 to $ 345. The retailer already sells shoes from the regular Newbark collection.
The collaboration will launch with a two-week pop-up inside the Theory in Los Angeles before rolling out in other Theory stores. At Thursday night’s party, where hipster singer Cherry Glazerr will perform, guests will also be able to customize their shoes with one-of-a-kind Swarovski patches.
The sisters launched Newbark in 2009 with a folding leather travel flat, after growing tired of aching feet from traveling. “It’s like when your feet are barking it means they’re hurting, that’s where the name comes from,” Marjan said.
They expanded into a full footwear and accessories

Pigalle Reveals Collaboration With Missoni

Pigalle and Missoni have revealed their men’s wear collaboration.
As expected, the collection merges the Parisian streetwear brand’s signature sporty silhouettes with Missoni’s colorful knits.
Although Pigalle’s basketball influences aren’t intrinsic to Missoni, the brand’s designer and founder Stéphane Ashpool found commonalities between himself and Ottavio Missoni, who started the Italian line.
“Ottavio Missoni is one person that I’ve always admired a lot in this industry. I see many similarities between us,” said Ashpool. “He came from a sport world; he has a strong attitude; he loves color, and has an elegant taste for eccentricity and a big value for the family. It’s the same [as Pigalle]. So in a way I feel like a baby of the Missoni values.”
The men’s wear capsule collection will be available this month exclusively at Colette in Paris, Dover Street Market in Tokyo’s Ginza district and Pigalle stores in Paris and Tokyo.

Louis Vuitton to Unveil Jeff Koons Collaboration at Louvre Dinner

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: Louis Vuitton is set to host a dinner at the Louvre Museum on Tuesday to unveil its collaboration with artist Jeff Koons on a series of bags featuring works by great masters, including the world’s most famous painting: Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa.”
Bernard Arnault, chairman and chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton parent company LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, is to cohost the affair with Jean-Luc Martinez, president of the Louvre Museum, which is home to the da Vinci painting and countless other masterpieces.
Koons is expected to attend alongside a host of celebrities, including Louis Vuitton friends and brand ambassadors Jennifer Connelly, Michelle Williams, Léa Seydoux, Adèle Exarchopoulos and Catherine Deneuve.

The Masters collection of bags and small leather goods follows in the footsteps of Vuitton’s previous collaborations with art world stars including Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Murakami and Richard Prince.
In addition to the “Mona Lisa,” it will feature works by Peter Paul Rubens, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Titian and Vincent van Gogh transposed on Vuitton bags such as the Speedy, the Keepall and the Neverfull.
Koons has copied masterpieces in his own work — namely in his “Gazing Ball” paintings shown at the Gagosian Gallery in New York in 2015 — and

Fashion East’s Matty Bovan Celebrates Barbie Collaboration

BIRTHDAY GIRL: Up-and-coming British designer Matty Bovan has been focusing his efforts to dressing a very special celebrity client for her birthday celebration this month: Barbie.
Mattel tapped the young designer to create outfits for the famous doll, as well as an accompanying film, to mark the 58th anniversary of the launch of Barbie.
Bovan unveiled the results of the collaboration at Mayfair’s The Women’s Space, to an intimate crowd of family and friends which included the designers Stephen Jones, Charles Jeffrey and Ryan Lo.
Bovan painted Barbie’s face with the bright, glitter eye shadows he favors for himself and dressed her in pieces from his spring 2017 collection, from chunky pink knitted sweaters, to crystal-embellished tasseled skirts and a velvet green printed dress.
“I’ve loved Barbie since childhood because for me it provided a blank canvas to be creative, plus Barbie is such a recognizable brand, so it was an immediate yes for me when Mattel got in touch,” Bovan said.
Guests gathered around the Barbies all smiles, taking pictures on their phones. Jones couldn’t resist taking a white rose and placing it upside down on one of the dolls’ heads as a hat. “Do you approve?” he asked Bovan.

St. Vincent’s Sleek, Angular Ernie Ball Collaboration Is An ‘Equal-Opportunity’ Guitar

When Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, announced the release of her guitar design collaboration with Ernie Ball manufacturers on Instagram in mid-2015, she described it asa tool that would be ergonomic, lightweight, and sleek.”

The angular aesthetic of her design is getting an update for 2017, with a new set of colors: Tobacco Burst, Heritage Red, Stealth Black and Polaris White — the latter of which she’s nicknamed “the thin white duke,” the same moniker given to David Bowie.

“Bowie’s like air. People just need Bowie to live,” she told The Huffington Post. Discussing her visual aims for the guitar, Clark continued, “I was going for a kind of retro-future aesthetic. I’m very fond of the Memphis school of design, and I’m fond of angularity in design. So I was going for that, rather than round shapes.”

The guitar features an African mahogany body, with a hand-rubbed rosewood neck and St. Vincent inlays — the two intersecting circles that represent the “S” in her logo. 

She’s seen photos of her Ernie Ball guitar in action. “One of my favorite guitar players — Omar [Rodríguez-López] from The Mars Volta and At the Drive-In — is playing a white one, left-handed. I couldn’t say enough good things about his guitar playing. I’m thrilled that he likes it.”

The instrument, Clark is clear, is an “equal-opportunity guitar,” even if the press latched on to her comment in 2015 that the design left “room for a breast. Or two,” hailing it as a boon for female guitarists. And while the design is lightweight and sleek, there’s no gender attached to it.

“I was making a joke,” she explained. “The guitar is equal-opportunity. It’s a really comfortable guitar no matter your body size or shape, but including if you are small, or if you do have breasts — men have breasts.”

“It’s an incredibly versatile guitar and I designed it with my own experience in mind,” she later added. She explained that the instrument is meant to be versatile, “both tone-wise and ergonomically,” for anyone who picks it up.

She brings up a fair point, on the heels of a press round for her directorial debut in the horror anthology “XX.” Clark said she was asked about the experience of being a woman, specifically, in film — a line of questioning she’s answered ad infinitum as a musician.

“I’ve spent a lot of time in my career side-stepping and unpacking the question of what’s it like to be a woman in music,” Clark said.

Later, she added, “I will say that no one has ever asked a guy in film or [music] what its like to be a guy in [film or] music. I think, personally, I would rather talk about the ins and outs and the specificity of the craft and ideas than spend any more time with this particular question.”

In this case, she’d rather talk about her guitar — and the fact that it’s accessible to a range of musicians.

“I think the idea is to make a great tool for artists and to make a great tool that is friendly to play whether you’re just starting out or whether you’ve been playing for 30 years or more,” Clark said.

And for those just starting out in the music world, Clark has this advice: “I just think it’s really important to know all aspects of your craft … Find out what you can about engineering, and learn about frequencies, and be able to be the engineer or speak to engineers live and in studio. And just make things that you like. Not things that you think other people might like, but things that you like. And things that matter to you.”

New York City Skaters Lash Out at Supreme and Louis Vuitton Collaboration

Supreme might have unveiled its MetroCard design last week to mass fanfare, but another of its collaborations is proving to rile the brand’s skater base.
Controversy continues to ripple through New York’s Lower East Side skate community following Louis Vuitton’s fall men’s runway show in Paris last month — when the French house unveiled its collaboration with Supreme.
In teaming with the skate-oriented streetwear label, Vuitton will release a collection heavy on accessories — including skater-type ephemera. The collection’s reported high price tags have left Supreme’s original base of skaters nonplussed, with many exclaiming that they feel “exploited” in seeing their tribal garb fed through the luxury assembly line.
According to streetwear blogs, it’s expected that a skateboard carrier from the collection — sold with skate deck and accessories included — will be priced at $ 54,500. Louis Vuitton did not offer comment on the estimated price.
WWD rode the D train down to the Lower East Side, and spoke with a gamut of skaters — at an LES skate park, skate shop and skate bar.
“I think it’s stupid as s–t,” an anonymous thirtysomething skater said of the collection at the Lower East Side watering hole, Forgtmenot. Most skaters who spoke with WWD requested anonymity for fear of

Anna Sui, O’Neill Celebrate Collaboration

SURF’S UP: It was a sea of boho chic as Anna Sui and O’Neill celebrated their 12-piece spring collection at a launch party Thursday in Orange County.
Anna Sui for O’Neill rolls out in Sui’s SoHo flagship, O’Neill stores, Tilly’s and Macy’s among other retailers Friday, following about a roughly year-long process planning the spring collection.
“It’s such a good fit for both of us,” Sui said. “Both of us excel in prints and they were good at taking my touches of lace or crochet and adapting it for more of the surf lifestyle, but anyone could also wear them in the city.”
Flowing dresses mixed with crocheted bathing suits and twists on some of Sui’s popular prints mark the collaboration, with all pieces retailing for under $ 100.
Anna Sui for O’Neill infuses more gypsy-inspired detailing, darker colors and embroidery for fall with the designer’s favorite piece being a romper.
The collaboration marks the first time O’Neill has worked with a major designer, according to design director Rachael Hill, and it looks to perhaps be the catalyst of more.
The company is now in talks with another women’s designer on its next collaboration, Hill said.

Fitness Loves Fashion: A New Collaboration We Can’t Wait to Shop!

athleta-derek-lam-10-crosby-collaboration

Whether or not there’s actual science to back it up, I know I’m a lot more likely to head to the gym if I’m excited to put on my workout clothes. The athletic market has been buzzing for a while now, and this morning brought news of a designer teaming up with a fitness brand for a three-season-long collaboration that’s gonna be rad. Drumroll, please…

Athleta and Derek Lam 10 Crosby are collaborating on a range that’ll first hit stores in September (collections will include fall 2015, winter 2015, and spring 2016). Pieces will incorporate the best of both brands, including the two-in-one functionality a lot of 10 Crosby’s garments have and the fabrics that make Athleta’s workout togs so fab; expect leggings, sweats, dresses, and custom sneakers that you can wear from gym to brunch, priced from $ 58 to $ 388.

I’d be excited regardless, but I’m especially jazzed right now. I just bought my first pair of Athleta leggings, and I love the fit and the fun fabric (I got stripes and sheer!).

How much attention do you pay to what you wear to the gym?
