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.
Beckham said, “I have always championed instilling confidence in women and Reebok is a brand that has been at the forefront of this same message for decades. To have the

EXCLUSIVE: N.E.R.D Comeback Rumors Fueled With New Fashion Collaboration

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

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.

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?
