Polo to Launch Dedicated Pride Collection, Campaign

Polo Ralph Lauren has been a champion of gay rights for a quarter-century, but this marks the first time the company has produced a dedicated collection and digital marketing campaign to support the community.
The Pride capsule collection features a five-piece gender-neutral assortment for men, women and children that will be supported by a marketing campaign focusing on inclusion and individuality. One hundred percent of the purchase price from the sale of the graphic T-shirt and 50 percent of the price of each polo shirt, hoodie, hat and tote will be donated to the Stonewall Community Foundation, a nonprofit group that benefits LGBTQ-plus organizations around the world.

The Polo shirt has been reimagined in rainbow hues for the Pride initiative.

The digital marketing campaign will feature a diverse group of individuals with deep roots within the LGBTQ-plus community, including freeskier, Olympic medalist and activist Gus Kenworthy; ballet dancer Harper Watters; writer, comedian and actress Patti Harrison; photographer and model Jacob Bixenman; actress Josie Totah, and Hetrick-Martin Institute affiliates Evrisha, Tyriq and Cory, all photographed by Cass Bird.
The campaign launches today on the company’s digital and social media channels.

Ovadia Unveiling Full Denim Collection

NEW YORK — The Ovadia brothers will introduce their first comprehensive denim and basics collection this October to offer an alternative to what they see as a stagnant designer denim market.
At the same time, the corporation has officially changed its name from Ovadia & Sons to Ovadia New York — or simply, Ovadia.
These shifts are among the first visible changes orchestrated by Neal Kusnetz, who joined the company last October as president. Kusnetz, the cofounder and former president of Robert Graham who had also served as president of men’s and private brands for Xcel Brands, took over the day-to-day operation of Ovadia to help it expand beyond the U.S., relaunch the e-commerce site and move into other categories.
The first order of business was denim.
“The whole premium contemporary denim market has been maturing for a while,” Kusnetz said in an interview at the company’s new offices in SoHo. He claimed most designer brands merely dabble in a few denim pieces while the bulk of the business is a volume “$ 99 outlet play.”
Working with Shimon and Ariel Ovadia, the twins that founded the business in 2010, they have created a 30-stock-keeping-unit collection of jeans and complementary tops and jackets with a “modern

Sterling Ruby: Pitti Uomo a ‘No Brainer’ to Debut Collection

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Los Angeles artist Sterling Ruby gave away little about the ready-to-wear label he’s set to launch in June during a breakfast for the upcoming Pitti Uomo save for one detail: the dark denim pair of jeans he was wearing from S.R. Studio. LA. CA., which he paired with a black hoodie.
The only other hint that’s been stated publicly in an announcement on the collection is it is to serve as a reinterpretation of American workwear.
The L.A. artist is a special guest of the trade show, presenting his first apparel collection — some 10 years in the making — at a June 13 event.
Ruby stood before media and other guests just ahead of breakfast being served.
“I’ve been interested in making clothes…for some time and most of it has been just kind of a private endeavor,” he said. “For the most part, it’s been something very internal. But over the last 10 years, I’ve started to understand the desire and the reasons why I was doing this to begin with, and I also started to work with people in the fashion industry, in the garment industry, from both owners of big luxury houses to the youngest designers.”

In a dramatized video featuring the “Game of Thrones” much-loved intro music, Urban Decay revealed today on its Instagram the full 13-piece collection, which will be released on April 14, the same day the show returns to HBO for its eighth and final season.

Jenny Packham Trots the Globe for Latest Collection

ALL DRESSED IN WHITE: Jenny Packham took inspiration from three different cities — New York, Paris and Bueños Aires — for her latest bridal collection.
“I wanted to convey the mood of these different places into my collection, voluminous skirts for Paris, sensual silhouettes for Bueños Aires and glamour for New York,” she said.
The bridal collection, presented in London alongside Packham’s signature and classic styles, also marked a new direction for the veteran bridal designer. She introduced contemporary designs such as a slip-style dress and a minidress with a feathered hem. Feathers also jazzed up other styles, as in the train of an A-line dress.
Packham worked a series of capes into her collection, too. A beaded column dress featured a cape-style back. Elsewhere, she paired different styles of strapless dresses with a feather capelet. “Brides can wear this over a wedding dress, it’s an alternative to buying two separate dresses for the ceremony and for the reception,” she said, adding that the bridal market is becoming increasingly competitive.
“The bridal market is becoming more cramped with new designers and lower price points, yet the market size remains the same. However, bridal customers are also seeking different styles,” said Packham, referring to a

Chriselle Lim Collection to Enter Shopbop, Bloomingdale’s

Chriselle Lim is expanding retail partnerships for her eponymous label.
In September, the superinfluencer teamed with Nordstrom to launch the debut line from The Chriselle Lim Collection, her namesake clothing brand. The collection, inspired by the fall season, was sold in 40 Nordstrom doors and online. On March 21, the sophomore line will arrive at Nordstrom and two new retail partners: Bloomingdale’s and Shopbop.

“[Nordstrom is] one of the best retailers out there, but I felt like I was ready to expand the collection and to get it into more hands,” said Lim. “Nordstrom isn’t everywhere — they’re not in New York. I have a ton of New York followers that have been asking and dying for [the collection], so Bloomingdale’s felt like the right fit. Our international customers, as well, are dying to get the collection and I believe that Shopbop has a great international shopping [experience]. I felt we were ready to expand.”
The forthcoming collection, the theme of which is “blooming,” consists of 28 stockkeeping units — tops, trousers, blazers, shorts and matching sets. There is also a larger offering of dresses, as requested by Lim’s

Keith Haring x Terez Collection Launches Today on Terez.com

Terez, the New York-based ath-leisure brand, is collaborating with the estate of the late Keith Haring to develop the Keith Haring x Terez collection.
The partnership was forged in collaboration with Artestar, which represents high-profile artists,  photographers, designers and creatives.
Haring, who died in 1990, was known for his Pop Art and graffiti-like style, which grew out of the New York street culture of the Eighties. The collaboration was said to be heavily inspired by the power of love.
The pieces from Haring’s image library used for this collaboration were those that triggered joy through their vibrant colors, something that is a Terez signature, according to the brand.
The collection includes leggings, bras, tanks, Ts, crewnecks and joggers. Prices range from $ 60 for an uplifted heart-muscle T to $ 101 for a rainbow crowd printed jogger.
The collection launches today and is exclusively being sold at terez.com.

Phoebe English Shows Fall 2019 Collection in Exhibition Alongside 30 Marionettes

EXHIBITIONIST: Phoebe English showcased pieces from her fall 2019 women’s wear offering at the Morley Gallery in South London at an exhibition called “Inanimate, Animate. (Only) Half the Reflection,” a show in two parts, the second of which features 30 charming marionettes wearing to-scale pieces from her archive.
The person-sized clothes, which made their debut during the men’s shows last month in a presentation, were suspended from the ceiling on rotating mechanisms that afforded close-up inspection of the intricate techniques that have earned her a loyal following.
There was a black pinafore dress with T-shaped cuts outlined with wide satin stitch embroidery, and a delicate white mesh harness.
“We call this coat, ‘The Coat of Dreams (and of Nightmares)’,” said English, fondly nodding to a black topper made from a great many patches of recycled black fabric, each piece encased in fine silk tulle. The kind of deceptively simple, thing that a cursory glance sets the mind to thinking, “Right, black coat” but an up-close eye-ball reveals all its complexities.
The space was scented by Timothy Han, who used the aromas of birch tar and dry wheat from his “On the Road” fragrance to emphasize English’s focus on natural sustainable fabrics, and Johanna Burnheart performed

Talbots and O, The Oprah Magazine Join Forces for Capsule Collection to Benefit Dress for Success Benefit

For its fourth cobranded collaboration with O, The Oprah Magazine to benefit Dress for Success, Talbots is anchored in the kicked-back “T by Talbots” line.
This year’s cobranded, limited-run collection leans on comfort to remind shoppers about the importance of self-care and to help them keep up appearances while on the go. O and Talbots recruited four active personalities to help spread the word — ABC’s “American Housewife” star Katy Mixon, former Olympian and fitness guru Angela Manuel-Davis, cohost of the Food Network’s “The Kitchen” Katie Lee and actor and musician Amber Riley.
During last month’s three-day “Girls’ Getaway” Holland America-O cruise, the 2,700 guests (of which 60 were men) had first dibs on the five-piece special collection and 30-plus styles from Talbots’ spring line in the O Shop. And Talbots hosted a “Love That!” fashion show where O’s creative director Adam Glassman shared his fashion advice with hundreds of women, styling the capsule collection with Talbots’ spring items. The magazine’s editor at large Gayle King was also on deck for the maiden voyage of Holland America’s “Nieuw Statendam,” as well as 25 “Mag Insiders.” When all was said and done, many cruise-goers headed to shore with three or four Talbots purchases,

Raquel Allegra Tie-dyes the Toes With New Shoe Collection

L.A. tie-dye queen Raquel Allegra has a new shoe collaboration with Pedro Garcia. She unveiled the capsule collection during a patchouli-scented party at her Third Street boutique on Thursday night. On hand during the event was BFF Lisa Bonet, one of several fierce Topanga Canyon females to appear in a photo series by Magdalena Wosinka to introduce the shoes.
“It was an excuse to play dress-up with close friends and turn it into an extended story,” explained Allegra, who first made a name for herself back in 2006, turning reclaimed L.A. County Jail tees into one-of-a-kind shirts with her signature shredding and tie-dye technique. She built her hand-crafted vision into a boho-refined brand of relaxed silk suits, evening pajamas, gauzy coats and dresses that retail at Barneys New York, Shopbop and more.
Collaborating with the third-generation Spanish shoemaker was a no-brainer, Allegra said. “The cool thing about working with Pedro is that their company feels very akin to ours; the way they tell their story is as much about people and culture and experience as it is about a shoe.”

Canada Goose Commissions Inuit Seamstresses for Collection

Canada Goose is embracing its heritage.
The Toronto-based outerwear brand has launched a social entrepreneurship program called Project Atigi, that celebrates the craftsmanship of the indigenous Inuit people, the original parka makers. Atigi is an Inuktitut word for “parka.”
On Thursday night, Canada Goose unveiled a one-of-a-kind collection of pieces hand-crafted by seamstresses from the Northern communities of Canada at an event in New York City.
The Project Atigi launch, the first of its kind in Canada, is part of the company’s commitment to Canada’s Northern regions. The brand commissioned 14 seamstresses representing nine communities across the four Inuit regions — Inuvialuit, Nunatsiavut, Nunavut and Nunavik — to each create one bespoke parka from Canada Goose materials using their traditional skills and designs.

One of the Inuit seamstresses. 

The exclusive collection includes anoraks, parkas and traditional amauti-style jackets for men, women and children, many adorned with artistic embellishments and crafted from patterns that have been passed down from generation to generation.

The coats feature traditional embellishments. 

The jackets will be on display for two weeks at Canada Goose stores starting in early February and sold on the company’s web site. They will retail for $ 5,000 to $ 7,500.
All profits from the sales will go to Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami,

Haney Launches Red-Carpet Capsule Collection With Intermix

Stylist-turned-designer Mary Alice Haney celebrated her new red-carpet capsule collection with Intermix in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, using her new Brentwood home as party venue and backdrop for shots of plenty of influencers wearing her clothes, Rocky Barnes, Jordana Brewster, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Marlien Rentmeester among them.
“The girl that is at Intermix is a Haney girl. She’s fashion-forward, she wants to party and loves a good party dress,” said the designer, who grew up in Chattanooga, Tenn., and got her start at magazines, then as a Hollywood stylist for A-listers such as Reese Witherspoon, Blake Lively and Sarah Jessica Parker.
“Tonight, we wanted to celebrate the L.A. influencers who are setting the pace for the fashion community,” added Haney, whose sparkling home, designed with Tim Clarke, has its own bar, which was serving up tequila and Champagne cocktails. (“My husband told me not to open the good stuff, but I didn’t pay attention,” joked Haney.)
“It was built in the Eighties and we’ve been renovating it for two years,” she said of the indoor-outdoor space, which has an interior garden, and houses her studio, complete with the Beverly Hills Hotel’s banana-leaf wallpaper.

Jamie Chung, Skyler Samuels and Shopbop fashion director Caroline Maguire joined guests in wearing the collection’s vacation-ready, exclusive cactus and hibiscus flower-print dresses (some sold with fun, matching belt bags), while sipping prosecco in Bungalow One, before sitting down to dinner beneath a rainbow grove of blooms created by L.A.-based florist Art Fleur.

Nike Puts Data First for New Techpack Collection 

RUSH HOUR – Nike believes that navigating the city is a sport unto itself and its new Techpack collection, of transitional sport’s wear, was designed to see customers through full 12 to 14 hour days.
The new collection will drop in Europe exclusively on the Nike app on Dec. 21. It will then be made available at all Nike stores, as of Jan. 10.
The collection marks a new strategy for the brand “to create with data-informed design.”
“This is really the first season we took a step back and looked at the way consumers were using the product. We spend an incredible amount of time working with athletes or people whose training is their prime pursuit and we know everything about them, so we said ‘Why don’t we apply some of that data-informed methodology to someone navigating the city?’” said Kurt Parker, vice president of apparel design at Nike.
“We pulled together a very international design team and found the insights to be very universal. The kid in Shanghai was living a very similar existence to the kid in London and parts of the U.S.,” Parker added.
Pieces include core performance products such as training tights, hoodies, T-shirts and shorts, including Nike’s popular Windrunner style. One of the

H&M Teams With Eytys for Gender-Neutral Collection

SWEDE TEAM: Hennes & Mauritz has teamed with Eytys for a gender neutral collection due early next year, targeting younger consumers with a fashion-forward offer.
The fast-fashion retailer will sell the Swedish label’s chunky-soled shoes and clothing for adults as well as items for children, starting Jan. 24 in some stores around the world and online.
The collaboration comes as the Swedish retailer undergoes a vast restructuring in a bid to beef up online services and speed up supply chains to catch up with rivals. The group last month said it would close Cheap Monday, a label geared to younger clients.
“The collection is all about proportions — creating a distinct unisex silhouette by playing around with loose silhouettes and chunky architectural footwear,” said Max Schiller, Eytys creative director.
Colors will include dark green, bright yellow, khaki, dark blue, black and white, while materials will include snakeskin prints, fake patent leather and stiff cotton. Shoes will be offered in boxes decorated with artwork by painter Zoe Barcza.
According to H&M’s statement, the retailer initially approached the label for a shoe collection but then decided on a full range of clothing and accessories, too, in order to show the “whole brand aesthetic and ethos,” according to Ross Lydon,

Nike Vision Expands Kevin Durant Eyewear Collection

Nike is placing more focus on its eyewear business Nike Vision.
The athletics brand, which produces and distributes its eyewear through Marchon, has released its second collection with NBA star Kevin Durant. Due to the success of the previous capsule, they’ve continued the partnership and expanded it to include sunglasses.
The two new styles of sunglasses include design details pulled from Durant’s on-court skills. The Nike KD Flicker boasts laser-etched components that are created from body-mapping Durant on court. Each of the sunglasses are laser-etched with a “KD” logo and Nike Swoosh logo on both temples. They retail from $ 99 to $ 144.
“Kevin was already wearing Nike sunglasses, so it was a natural progression from his optical collection to expand to sunglasses as well,” said Steve Tripi, marketing director at Marchon. “KD provides inspiration and direction for product design and he is involved throughout the process for approvals.”
The four new optical styles include the Nike KD 88, which is named after Durant’s birth year, and the Nike KD 929, which is named after his birthday. They were designed for young athletes and have flexible spring hinges meant to offer durability and comfort. The Nike KD 28 represents Durant’s age when he won his

Shaniqwa Jarvis Teams With X-Girl to Drop Capsule Collection at Social Studies NY

STREET-SMART FASHION: The streetwear brand X-Girl has lined up portrait photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis for its latest collaboration.
Compact to the degree that only three items are offered, the styles are available through Sunday at Social Studies NY, a multipurpose space and pop-up. To help spread the word about the collaboration, photographer Chandler Kennedy shot the painter and model Monica Hernandez wearing the assortment. A “Mini Me” crewneck sweatshirt retails for $ 95, the $ 50 “Too Many Rich People in NY” T-shirt and the $ 50 “Less, Less, Less” tote bag, which was hand-dyed by Jarvis, are up-for-grabs.
Jarvis, who has shot for Gap, Supreme, Riposte and others, dove into the capsule collection sector last year for the launch of her Baque Creative Press-published book. Started by musician Kim Gordon and stylist Daisy von Furth in 1994, the X-Girl brand has renewed its focus on New York, and is on the lookout for new talent and creatives that align with the brand. The company has more than 100 stores in Japan and has loyalists like Chloë Sevigny and Sofia Coppola. Early on, the Lafayette Street-rooted label rallied young feminists and that ethos remains.

Tackma to Offer Elevated Unisex Collection

Jeffrey Schottenstein wants Tackma to speak to more consumers.
Schottenstein, the son of Jay L. Schottenstein, chairman of American Eagle Outfitters Inc., founded the streetwear line, which stands for “They All Can Kiss My A–,” in 2011. Now he’s hoping to broaden Tackma’s scope with Tackma Studio, an elevated, unisex collection that’s being guest-designed by Gregory Abbou, who cofounded Taverniti So Jeans in 2003 and has consulted for labels including Iro, Re/Done, Genetic Denim, Guess and L’Agence.
“I wanted to bring more awareness to our brand story and mission,” said Schottenstein. “Tackma is about challenging the status quo and embracing your individuality and I think that this unisex collection embodies that.”
The collection, which is made in Los Angeles, includes T-shirts, hoodies, outerwear and long-line shirts made from French terry, Supima jersey and modal cotton. The pieces come in a mostly neutral palette of ivory, black, gray and clay pink, with special dying techniques to create marbleized tones and hand-embroidery details such as raw edges and seams. It retails from $ 170 to $ 525 for outerwear, $ 75 to $ 225 for shirts, $ 168 to $ 195 for sweatshirts and $ 170 to $ 220 for pants. The Tackma collection retails from $ 25 to $ 68.

Pronovias Introduces Eveningwear Capsule Collection

Bridal specialist Pronovias wants to dress women beyond their wedding day.
To complement the range of bridal and occasion dresses, the Spanish-based company unveiled a capsule collection of eveningwear, named “Evening Essentials” at its flagship in central Milan on Wednesday.
The collection comprises 15 styles between floor-length gowns and cocktail dresses, each available in four different shades — dusty turquoise, pale pink, black and red. Crafted from crepe, chiffon and tulle, the designs avoided decorations and embellishments, which are a brand’s staple, to offer leaner silhouettes in an attempt to engage a younger, more international customer base.
Catering to different body types, the design team created A-line skirts and mermaid gowns featuring halter neck, heart-shaped and off-the-shoulder necklines. Shorter hourglass styles were punctuated by tiny beads which emphasized the shape of the body and simple pencil cocktail dresses were given a twist via boat necks and cutouts on the back.

Y/Project to Unveil Men’s Fall Collection at Pitti Uomo

MILAN — Y/Project will show its men’s fall 2019 collection in Florence as guest brand of the next edition of international men’s wear trade show Pitti Uomo, running Jan. 8 to 11.
Y/Project’s collections are designed by Glenn Martens, who succeeded the brand’s founder Yohan Serfaty as creative director in 2013. Serfaty passed away that year.
Under the creative direction of Martens, the Paris-based label won the ANDAM Grand Prize award in 2017 and consolidated its presence in the most relevant department stores in the world, including Dover Street Market, Barneys, Selfridges, Lane Crawford and Jeffrey.
“Glenn Martens created for Y/Project a new aesthetic language, based on contradictions,” said Pitti Immagine communication and events director Lapo Cianchi. “Elegance is juxtaposed with eclectic and extravagant references, streetwear is enriched with historic details and exaggerated couture touches. The brand offers a highly conceptual design in line with the most advances projects in the market and Martens express a witty sense of humor and has a very personal fashion vision, based on freedom, experimentation and fun, without boundaries.”
Last June, Martens unveiled in Milan his capsule collection for the Diesel Red Tag label. Craig Green and Roberto Cavalli were the latest guests designer at Pitti Uomo last June.

New Era Doubles Down on Premium EK Collection

New Era noticed a gap in the market for premium hats that were at a contemporary price point, so they launched the EK Collection a few seasons ago, with the E and the K standing for New Era’s founder Ehrhardt Koch.
“Our brand is closely associated with the baseball cap, but the first hat he designed was a Gatsby hat,” said Billy Loncar, senior design manager for New Era Cap. “This line is paying homage to our heritage through materials, hardware and little finishing details.”
According to Loncar, each season the vintage aesthetic remains the same, but they infuse premium materials, new colors and different fabrications into the line. The line is broken down into Luxe, Vintage and Classic and includes a waffle-knit beanie, a shearling and velvet baseball cap, a velvet skully, a wool fedora and a herringbone driver’s cap. The line retails from $ 60 to $ 150. The collection is distributed on New Era’s e-commerce site along with Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Fred Segal, Barneys New York and Selfridges.
“I think one of the really great things about the EK line is the clean aesthetic and subtle details that go into the designs that buyers appreciate,” said Loncar. “The styles are wearable

Shayne Oliver Presents Capsule Collection with Colmar

On the eve of Milan Fashion Week, performance apparel company Colmar unveiled its collaboration with American designer Shayne Oliver with a party filled with fake snow, held Tuesday night at the Arco Della Pace venue here.
The collaboration between Oliver and Colmar falls under the sportswear company’s A.G.E. project, which stands for Advanced Garment Exploration. The company plans to conscript designers and other creative types to give its heritage with a contemporary take.
Oliver’s capsule collection comprises three different drops. While the first delivery — priced at between 500 euros and 2,200 euros — is already available at six locations worldwide including Browns in London, I.T. in Hong Kong, New York’s Totokaelo, Gr8 in Tokyo, Milan’s Excelsior and online at Ssense, the second drop is slated to hit retail in December. Colmar chief executive officer Giulio Colombo said a third capsule is expected for fall 2019.
“I do like to be subversive, … I do think that people are spending a lot of money on really basic, normal clothes and I wanted to add a bit of design,” said Oliver. And so he did, giving Colmar’s signature outerwear pieces exaggerated proportions, at times layering them or transforming them into capes and trimmed with

Ciongoli’s 18 East Collection Features Artisan Handwork

Antonio Ciongoli knows how things work in fashion — and he’s breaking the rules.
Ciongoli, cofounder of Eidos and one-time deputy creative director of Michael Bastian, on Thursday will unveil his new collection, 18 East, a line of men’s wear created by artisans in India and Nepal.
The line is being financed by RRR Brands, a multibrand platform that acquired the women’s brand Roller Rabbit at the end of 2017. Ciongoli joined RRR Brands as creative director last fall working with Andrew Seibert, who is also founder of the private equity firm Bricker Holdings. Roller Rabbit is also an India-inspired artisan brand.
Since resigning as creative director of Eidos a little over a year ago after a 4.5-year stint, Ciongoli has been working on 18 East. He traveled to India and Nepal and immersed himself in those countries’ handcrafted processes, visiting Jaipur, Delhi and Kathmandu.
The result is a 31-piece collection that incorporates fabrics and techniques that are ingrained in the culture there, including the use of khadi fabric for shirts and outerwear that includes a Mandu jungle jacket with an elaborate Himalayan tapestry textile back panel. Khadi is an entirely handmade cloth that uses no electricity to produce.
He also used kalamkari, a type

H&M Partners With WWF for Sustainable Kids’ Collection

SAVE THE SPECIES: Swedish retailer Hennes & Mauritz AB is collaborating with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) on a sustainable collection of children’s clothes, in its latest initiative designed to cement its green credentials in the eyes of increasingly eco-conscious consumers.
Launching Sept. 27, the line features items such as sweatshirts, leggings and hooded dresses in organic cotton, with 10 percent of each sale helping fund the wildlife conservation organization’s endangered species program.
Designs are printed with illustrations of at-risk species such as tigers, snow panthers, polar bears, elephants and penguins. WWF hopes the collection will raise awareness among the younger generation of consumers.

Descente Athletic Collection to Break in U.S. Market

After more than eight decades making its mark in the Asian market, Descente is setting its sights on America.
The Japanese athletic brand has created a wholly owned North American subsidiary, Descente Athletic Americas Inc., that is based in Atlanta, as well as an e-commerce site that will launch today.
Although Descente has sold its Mountain ski collection in the U.S. for some time, this marks the first time its Athletic lifestyle offering will be sold in America.
Fritz Taylor, a 30-year veteran whose résumé includes Nike, Under Armour, Brooks and Mizuno, has been tapped to serve as president of Descente Athletic Americas and to introduce the collection to the U.S. market.
Taylor admitted that when he was approached by Descente to join the company, he wasn’t interested. “The market is so crowded. Do we really need another sportswear brand?” he asked. But he agreed to make the trip to the brand’s Japanese headquarters, where he was impressed by Descente’s craftsmanship and innovation. “I felt like there was something really unique there,” he said, so he agreed to join.
“The sportswear market is at an interesting time where consumers are either gravitating toward disposable fashion or fewer but higher-quality garments,” Taylor added. “Our attitude is

Danielle Guizio Teams With FDNY to Create Limited-Edition Capsule Collection

FOUR-ALARM FASHION: With a few relatives who are firefighters, Danielle Giuzio understands the round-the-clock dedication that goes with the job. Now the New York-based contemporary designer has created a capsule collection with the New York City Fire Department. Developed to honor the work of New York’s bravest, the nine-piece collection of genderless streetwear features FDNY logos and incorporates uniform accents and fire truck insignia.
Four years into her own company, Giuzio started her career as a stylist, working with Lady Gaga’s stylist. More recently, she started doing a little personal shopping on the side at the request of her friends including Halsey, whom she first met six years ago. One of Giuzio’s childhood friends is now the musician’s manager. The designer said she first got to know of Halsey via the Internet. “It might have even been before Instagram,” she said.
The pair became friends during their leaner days, when each was trying to make their way. At that time, Halsey was sleeping on the floor with two of Giuzio’s other friends in a New York apartment. As for lending a hand to Gaga’s wardrobe, Giuzio said she grew up singing and dancing to the six-time Grammy winner’s music in her friends’

Christopher Bates to Sell Men’s Collection to Nordstrom in Canada

Canadian men’s designer Christopher Bates will be celebrating his 10th anniversary with a runway show Tuesday night during Toronto Fashion Week at the same time he reveals a deal with Nordstrom as the brand’s exclusive department store partner in Canada.
“Spring/summer 2019 is by far one of my most technically advanced collections and having it launch with such an iconic retailer as Nordstrom is a dream come true,” said Bates.
The spring collection is inspired by vintage tennis and cycling wear and includes a focus on technical fabrics and modern tailoring. Each piece is created with luxury textiles from Italy and include 3-D textured bomber jackets, jersey travel blazers, colorful knitwear and lightweight jackets and coats.
In addition to ready-to-wear, Bates has a bespoke business, working with a master tailor in Toronto to produce suits, tuxedos, jackets and shirts. For five seasons, Bates has partnered with Canadian specialty retailer Harry Rosen on a shoe collection, which will be rolling out from four to 10 stores next year, and he is creating a line of sneakers in collaboration with MTV that will launch next month.

Shaq, Penney’s Primed for Debut of New B&T Collection

It’s a battle of the big men.
In less than a month, Shaquille O’Neal will face off against Michael Strahan on the men’s floors at J.C. Penney when the retailer launches a new line of big & tall tailored clothing for O’Neal that will join Strahan’s collection that has been carried there exclusively since 2015.
Penney’s tapped O’Neal in March to serve as the company’s exclusive Big & Tall style ambassador and the new brand, Shaquille O’Neal XLG, is an extension of that relationship.
“It can be a very friendly competition,” said James Starke, senior vice president and head of merchandising for J.C. Penney, with a chuckle.
O’Neal wouldn’t be goaded into predicting which line would win at the register, saying graciously instead: “Michael is a friend of mine,” and adding that he believes there’s room for both celebrity collections at the store.
O’Neal’s collection, which will hit 350 stores and online on Sept. 12, will be exclusively targeted to the big & tall market while Strahan’s offers a wider range of sizes.
“We identified special sizes across the country as an underserved market, especially in men’s and kids,” Starke said. “As we were starting to formulate our strategy, we knew we needed someone who was

Anya Hindmarch Puts Latest Handbag Collection to Work

TO THE GRINDSTONE: It’s still August, but Anya Hindmarch is already smelling the autumn leaves and freshly sharpened pencils with a back-to-school style capsule collection called Bags That Work, five styles for women who live to organize and compartmentalize.
The collection is a mix of cross-body and tote bags for day, including the Vere Satchel with its zip-flap front and multiple inside compartments; the Double Zipped Chain, a rectangular number made from a series of envelope-style pouches, and the Ebury Zipped Tote, made to fit a computer or iPad.
There’s also the Nevis Tote, which allows devices to be stored upright, and the Vere Tote, which features the same zip-flap front as its smaller namesake.
Bags can be customized by adding a charm — such as a mink fried egg, a chubby leather heart or a fuzzy pair of red cherries — or by changing the strap. Pockets inside the bags are labeled for phone, cards and coins.
“I love things that work — and deliver — and I find organization deeply exciting,” said Hindmarch, adding that these bags are meant for women who jump from cars to trains and planes, and who need to find their pens, phones, notepads or board minutes quickly.

Steve Aoki to Be Face of Diesel’s New Watch Collection

Steve Aoki has snagged his newest fashion industry partnership.
The electronic dance music producer and DJ will become the watch ambassador for Diesel, serving as the face of the brand’s first transparency watch collection, which is launching today.
Last year, Aoki teamed with Asics to serve as a brand ambassador and footwear designer. This supplemented the Dim Mak fashion and lifestyle label he created more than a decade ago and his partnership in Vision Street Wear.
The deal with Diesel is intended to promote the new blue transparency watch line, the inspiration for which was drawn from the indigo dyeing of jeans, a hallmark of the brand. The new watch collection displays cream details on the dial that are inspired by the stitches used in denim, and cases and straps that fade from blue to crystal clear.
Andrea Rosso, creative director of licenses for Diesel and son of founder Renzo Rosso, said he’s known Aoki for a while and believes he and Diesel “have something in common. He never stops, he’s a manic guy; I’ve never met a guy who can do so much. And at Diesel, we never stop either. His style and his sense of aesthetic perfectly match the design and the clashing

Universal Standard Tests Same-Day Delivery with AC Survival Collection

The blanket of humidity that has enveloped much of the east coast this week has made the air-conditioned office life not such a bad place to be. But for some cubicle dwellers the indoor chill is only bearable to a point.
More than a century after the father of modern air-conditioning Willis H. Carrier finessed the first centrifugal refrigeration machine, Universal Standard has developed a way to fend off the freeze. The size-inclusive e-tailer has introduced an “AC Survival Collection,” to highlight its versions of the perfect summer sweaters. New York City consumers who order one of the options before noon can have those essentials messengered to their desks by 5 p.m. at no extra cost.
The concept also provided a way to test same-day delivery, according to cofounder Alexandra Waldman. Estimating that 100 orders would be a good showing in New York City for Thursday’s sales, the response of nearly 300 orders was a welcome surprise. “We had thought, ‘If this works, maybe we will try it a few more times and make it a regular option for our customers,’” Waldman said.
Universal Standard now plans to continue the test, due to Thursday’s success. The brand’s suggestions include the Curve Cardi in black,

The brand won’t only present its spring 2019 collection to buyers and press at the fair’s Tortona 27/Superstudio Più location, but will also celebrate its 20th anniversary with a special installation at the Tortona 31/Archiproducts venue. Here, A.F. Vandevorst will also operate a pop-up show selling limited edition ready-to-wear and accessories.
Putting the focus on Belgian creativity, White will host in the same Tortona 31/Archiproducts area “The Belgian Focus,” a special project developed in collaboration with Flanders DC, a no-profit organization founded by the Flemish government to boost the business of the region’s economy. Through the partnership, seven emerging companies, – including sustainable underwear specialist Ophelia Lingerie, printed textile maker Marlène Madou, footwear brand Morobé, bag label Lies Martens, jewelry house Studio Collect, as well as ready-to-wear firms Mooiloop and Helder Antwerp, – will showcase their creations in Milan.
The next edition of White will also see the participation of Fiorucci, which, as special guest of the trade show, will present its spring 2019 lineup in a dedicated area at the Tortona 27/Superstudio Più venue.

Giles Deacon Creates a Colorful Collection for Aspinal of London

LADIES OF LONDON: Giles Deacon has taken up his paintbrushes and colored inks to create a capsule collection for the British accessories brand Aspinal of London. The collection, which is to make its debut during London Fashion Week in September and land in-store and online Oct. 15, will be available globally. In the U.S. it will be sold exclusively at Barneys New York.
Deacon has drawn a gang of elegant women dressed in colorful Forties-style skirts, coats, evening gowns, nipped waists and trouser suits, all walking on a bed of pink roses. Aspinal has cast the print onto the brand’s totes, shoulder and handbags, wallets and other small leather accessories. One of the designs — a woman holding a large handbag — has been lifted from the bigger print and embossed on the brand’s Hepburn bag.

The mini hat-box bag has been covered in moiré leather in gold, rose gold and emerald green while the Aspinal Trunk Clutch has an iridescent hand-embroidered feather motif inspired by the Aspinal logo. The collection also includes silk scarves — and Christmas crackers — bearing the original print.
Prices range from 65 pounds for a luggage tag to 950 pounds for the embossed Hepburn bag.

Gucci to Show Spring 2019 Collection at Théâtre Le Palace in Paris

PALACE BOUND: Gucci revealed on Monday that its spring 2019 collection will be presented at Théâtre Le Palace in Paris on Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. The Italian fashion house said this is the first time the location will host a runway show.
Le Palace, located at 8 Rue du Faubourg-Montmartre, served for years as a nightclub, drawing members of the fashion and music industries as well as an underground culture.
“The Théâtre Le Palace resonates with the vision of the house as it is a venue that gave life to a (sub)culture that has inspired young generations up until today,” said a statement from Gucci.
This is a one-off show for Gucci in Paris and marks the crescendo of a three-part homage to France conceived by the Italian brand’s creative director, Alessandro Michele.
Gucci began its ode to France starting with its pre-fall advertising campaign, which harks back to that country circa 1968, when student marches and riots sparked popular rebellions against military and bureaucratic elites. Photographed and directed by Glen Luchford, it depicts Gucci-clad rebels occupying a university campus, passionately challenging the establishment and asking for change. Luchford’s black-and-white photos are inspired by the bold French Nouvelle Vague imagery of the late Fifties and Sixties and by radical filmmakers François

Off-White, TheDoubleF Launch Capsule Collection

Off-White has teamed with Italian online retailer TheDoubleF to launch a capsule collection, which will be on sale on the e-commerce site from Wednesday.
Called TheDouble-OFF, the capsule consists of seven unisex pieces including a jacket, a hoodie, a sweatshirt, a T-shirt, a pair of jeans, as well as a hat and a belt, featuring details in the e-tailer’s signature teal green color.
“I started from the ‘TheDoubleF’ visual DNA to create a collection with a special crafted identity that relates to the Off-White core image,” said Off-White creative director and chief executive officer Virgil Abloh.
“We believe in synergies, a critical element to differentiate ourselves in a highly competitive market. So, who better than Virgil Abloh could inaugurate our series of exclusive collaborations?” TheDoubleF ceo Francesco Galli said, referring to the series of exclusive collaborations with high-end designers and brands to be developed in coming months.  “Off-White and TheDoubleF are two emerging brands with a disruptive DNA — the result is an explosive capsule collection.”
To promote the TheDouble-OFF capsule, TheDoubleF has tapped Milan-based photographer Piotr Niepsuj, who explored the theme of duality by working with two models and mirrors.
The capsule retails from 190 euros for the T-shirt to 1,400 euros for the jacket.
Launched last year, TheDoubleF is

Ada Kokosar Debuts Solo Shoe Collection During Paris Couture

After debuting last season with a shoe range for Cesare Paciotti and earlier this year with a collaboration with Dodo Bar Or, Ada Kokosar presented the first solo footwear collection of Midnight 00 by Ada Kokosar at the Meurice during Couture Week. The fashion consultant took over the hotel’s Belle Etoile suite overlooking the Tuileries garden, filling it with plants until the luxury accommodation looked like it had been overrun by nature during Sleeping Beauty’s century-long nap.
What is unique about these slippers is the high-gloss finish brought by the PVC that Kokosar drapes on each draped-and-embellished design. “As a reference, I wanted to take the most iconic and utopian shoe of all times, Cinderella’s glass slipper,” she said, showing off a glossy mule with flourishes of soft fabric peeking at the edges and decorated with a bejeweled crescent moon — the brand’s emblem. Heels and flats came in soft yet saturated shades of lilac, peach or pink fabric — silk satin, duchesse or super-soft cotton. Most striking of all was the transparent ruffle that encases shoe and ankle in a shell-like cocoon. Cherry on this highly iced cake? “The PVC makes the shoe last for a very long time: it

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.”

Toiletpaper’s Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari Partner with Maison Kitsuné for Capsule Collection

COMPLETELY SURREAL: Toiletpaper’s cofounders Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari have extended their surrealistic influence through a new collaboration with Maison Kitsuné.
Meant to challenge the limits of fashion as art, Toiletpaper’s bright and racy images have been splashed onto T-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, iPhone cases and tote bags. Available as of Saturday in Maison Kitsuné’s New York store, the 15-piece collection is a second act, The first directional capsule collection between both parties debuted in Tokyo. An image of a fluffy white cat surrounded by white mice has been stamped on a smartphone case, and a close-up of a tongue covered with red, white and blue toothpaste decorates a tote bag. Retail prices range from $ 45 to $ 630 for the new genderless designs.
As the evocative name of their magazine suggests, Cattelan and Ferrari are known for pushing boundaries through their artistic and commercial enterprises. Their black humor is evident in Toiletpaper’s collection of plates, mugs, tablecloths, teapots, soaps, umbrellas and other items for the Italian design company Seletti. A plunger, for example, is among the unexpected imagery they have used for that collaboration.

Paris Hilton has codesigned a summer collection for Boohoo.com, the U.K.-based fast-fashion e-tailer, set to launch globally June 20. The Boohoo x Paris Hilton collection features a range of ready-to-wear and swimwear that reflects her favorite trends and fashion moments from the early Aughts.

Natalie McGrath, vice president of marketing at Boohoo USA, explained, “What we were seeing coming through with all the trends this year was a throwback to the Nineties and the early 2000s. We wanted to home in on that trend and own it from a collaboration standpoint.

Birkenstock and Berlin Porcelain Maker KPM Join Forces on Limited-Edition Sandal Collection

Strange Bedfellows: On the heels of its most recent collaboration with Rick Owens as well as this year’s assorted Birkenstock Box cooperations with retailers the world over, the footwear maker has tapped a somewhat unlikely royal partner for the latest take on the brand’s iconic Arizona and Gizeh cork footbed sandals: KPM Berlin.
Founded in 1763 and thus 11 years older than Birkenstock, the highly respected Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur provided its Kurland Royal Noir pattern as well as a signature porcelain inset for the limited-edition Birkenstock x KPM. There are four models in all, the Arizona and Gizeh in black-on-black embossed leather, and both models in a black and gold Royal Noir print. Limited to 300 pieces per style, the sandals are available exclusively at Berlin’s leading premium department store KaDeWe through June 9, as well as online at birkenstock.com for 280 euros a pop. For those who’d like to wear their Birkenstocks and have a matching cup of coffee, too, a large-sized KPM Kurland Royal Noir cup and saucer will set one back 1,190 euros.
The special edition was feted Thursday night with a cocktail reception at the third-floor Birkenstock X KPM pop-up shop at KaDeWe, which featured the Birkenstock sandals, items from

MILAN — Blumarine has teamed with Italian emerging designer Salvatore Piccione to launch a women’s capsule collection, hitting stores in November.
Called “We Are in Love With Salvatore Piccione,” the capsule, which in keeping with Blumarine’s offering is positioned in the luxury segment of the market, combines the brand’s signature romantic and feminine approach with Piccione’s attention to vibrant prints and colors.
“We have had Salvatore Piccione on our radar for quite a long time since we think that his aesthetic and taste are very close to the most authentic DNA of the Blumarine brand and to the fashion sensibility of our founder and creative director Anna Molinari,” said Gianguido Tarabini, chief executive officer of Blufin, the group operating the Blumarine and Blugirl brands. “We gave him carte blanche, we are very happy with the final result and we really hope to continue this collaboration for many seasons.”
The capsule, which will be unveiled to buyers on May 24 before the presentation of the new Blumarine resort 2019 lineup in Milan, includes a range of dresses, rompers and separates embellished with feminine prints, delicate bows and fur accents.

Vionnet Teams With Artist Marc Quinn on Sustainable Collection

LONDON — Vionnet is veering in a more environmentally sound direction with a sustainable collaboration with the artist Marc Quinn that launches May 7 at Selfridges, WWD has learned.
“The fashion industry is the second biggest pollutant in the world,” said Goga Ashkenazi, Vionnet’s creative director, in an interview. She described the project as “a true coming together of minds” to raise awareness, and also to take steps toward sustainability.
Ashkenazi looked to Quinn’s “Raft Paintings” series, which features rafts made from colorful plastic bags, and created a 340-piece Sustainable Surf lineup that includes coats, dresses, blouses, trousers, cardigans, sweaters, hoodies, jumpsuits and T-shirts. There are also bags and belts.
The range, which takes its inspiration from surfing culture, uses materials such as cotton poplin, eco-leather, recycled plastics and terrycloth in hues of black, blue, yellow, pink, orange and white.
Prices range from 50 pounds for a belt to 1,842 pounds for a long gown. Fifty percent of sales will benefit Parley for the Oceans, an organization that helps to fight pollution and tackle the threat to oceans.

Bravado, VFiles Partner on Tupac Poetry Collection

Tupac, who died more than two decades ago, is still capturing the youth, despite statements made last month by Lil Xan, one of the many “lil” rappers under 25 with a predilection for face tattoos, who called Tupac’s music boring.
That aside, in honor of National Poetry Month, Bravado has partnered with VFiles to release a Tupac poetry collection, which includes hoodies, T-shirts and bandannas covered in Tupac imagery and his handwritten poetry.
“The Tupac estate offered us these incredible notes on looseleaf paper that Tupac had written himself,” said Alessandra Botticelli, vice president of retail creative and design at Bravado. “It’s his written poetry that developed into his music. We were so inspired by the innocence and the poignancy of the message that’s still relevant to our collective culture today.”
The line, which retails from $ 30 to $ 230, features the eye illustration that Tupac frequently used in place of “I,” as well as handwritten poems laid over an image of his face and a “Sometimes I Cry” graphic on an orange hoodie. It will be available to purchase beginning today at VFiles’ SoHo store for its monthly Pass The Aux event, where members of VFiles’ growing community of emerging musicians are able to

Lacoste Creates 85th Anniversary Collection

Lacoste is celebrating its 85th anniversary by reaching into its archives to create a collection of polo shirts and other pieces that celebrate each decade in its history.
The 15 reissues — eight unisex polos, three dresses, a pair of shoes and three bags — blend the original asethetic of the items with the contemporary colors used in the brand’s summer collection.
For the Thirties, Lacoste reimagined the prototype of the original polo shirt designed by Rene Lacoste in 1993 in a slim cotton interlock fabric, cut-and-sew collar, folded placket and a patch pocket on the chest. Sleeves are slightly longer than the current iteration.

A tennis dress from the Sixties. 

Other key pieces include a Fifties-inspired combination of a polo shirt and sweatshirt; a backless V-neck tennis dress with pleated hem from the Sixties; a sailor top from the Eighties, and an all-over graphic print from the Nineties.
The anniversary capsule encompasses men’s, women’s and children’s apparel, accessories and footwear, and will retail for $ 65 to $ 265. It will be available in the company’s stores and on its web site beginning on May 2.

Outdoor Voices Gives Shoppers a Jump on Running Collection With AR-Powered Trail Shops

OV IN THE TRAIL: Outdoor Voices’ decision to venture into running apparel was a natural extension for company founder Tyler Haney. The entrepreneur, who also serves as chief executive officer, is a runner. But rather than introduce the run-of-the-mill singlet and side-slit shorts, Haney drummed up a more unusual idea.
Before the collection lands in Outdoor Voices stores and its e-commerce site Wednesday, shoppers can check out the OV Trail Shop today. By downloading the OV Trail Shop app, consumers can figure out where the nearest Trail Shop is to find the new running collection. The augmented reality shopping experience enables them to check out the seams, textures and finishing touches of the items. The items will be on the Trail Shop for a week, but shoppers in 22 cities only have Tuesday to get to the closest Trail Shop in the area. In total, there will be 50 locations to get first dibs on the brand’s debut running collection, which includes a collaboration with Hoka One One. Select locations will have more than one, as is the case with New York City, which has three. To ensure there is no wandering down side streets, a map will guide users to

Tommy Hilfiger, Lewis Hamilton Team for Capsule Collection

Lewis Hamilton, British Formula One racing driver and four-time Formula One World Champion, is gearing up to introduce a men’s capsule collection in collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. They will introduce the first Tommy x Lewis collection for fall retailing.
The news comes a month after Hamilton was named a global brand ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger Men’s, starting this spring, as reported. Hilfiger is owned by PVH Corp.
Hamilton revealed the collection logo to fans at an exclusive event in Shanghai on Wednesday, putting his own stamp on the Tommy Hilfiger flag. The Tommy x Lewis flag was unveiled in an art installation that shared the inspirations behind the design, including street art influences and projections of Hamilton’s own body art. The logo is a take on Hilfiger’s signature flag trademark positioned behind Hamilton’s initials in navy, reflecting the brand’s colors and the font used in the British Formula One racer’s own tattoos.
The collection will be revealed to editors on May 7.
As reported, Hamilton was named the face of Hilfiger men’s, which includes the Collection and Tailored lines as well as underwear and swimwear. The appointment is aimed at driving the growth of Hilfiger men’s worldwide and bringing the next generation of fans

Jonathan Anderson Shows Second Uniqlo Collection in Tokyo

TOKYO—Jonathan Anderson made a quick trip to the Japanese capital to launch the second season of his collaboration with Uniqlo at a press event Tuesday. The line hits stores around the world as well as Uniqlo’s e-commerce site on April 20.
Anderson spoke about his love of Tokyo and Japanese design at an event on the 52nd floor of the Andaz hotel.
“Every time I come here I end up shopping way too much, spending all my money,” he said with a laugh. “Since I was very young I’ve always been obsessed with Japanese craft, this idea that you can build this legacy which you pass on generation to generation, which I think is quite similar in British culture.”
The Brighton Beach-inspired spring offering of Anderson’s collection with Uniqlo is made up of basics with a twist, like striped or solid t-shirts with uneven hems, ruffle collar shirts, and chino shorts. The designer, who said he wears Uniqlo every day, said he has enjoyed working with the Japanese company—he described the experience as “methodical”—and that he has been impressed by the quality it is able to deliver at low prices.
“I’ve done collaborations before, but the difference with Uniqlo is that they make the

Susan Lucci to Kick Off Signature Activewear Collection With QVC

BEND AND STRETCH: While some might argue that being a leading soap opera star for 41 years requires a certain stamina, Susan Lucci will soon be showing off her flexibility with a new activewear collection with QVC.
Set to debut April 13 with an hourlong show, the Susan Lucci collection will not be the former “All My Children” star’s first go-round with QVC. A big fan of the Life’s a Beach Inc. Pilates Pro Chair, she has been an on-air guest for a number of years selling the exercise equipment and shows her strength in the 28-minute “Susan Lucci’s Favorite Moves” video. Her QVC fans and ones from her Erica Kane days can soon dress the part, so to speak, buying the eight-piece activewear. Cropped printed leggings, a racer-back tank, a cap-sleeve rushed top and a colorblock hoodie are among the offerings. QVC reaches more than 360 million homes.
“It’s appropriate for lunching with your friends, going to the shops, picking your children up from school and not missing a beat and traveling on a plane. And I travel a lot,” Lucci said. “QVC has put me together with a wonderful team, and boy do they get it because the fit is

A picture of a female customer posted on Facebook sealed the deal for Erin Fujimoto and Tom Patterson, cofounders of Tommy John, a men’s underwear brand that’s now venturing into the women’s category.
In the picture, the customer was wearing Tommy John men’s underwear with a caption pleading with the brand to create a line for women.
“I realized that the noise from our customers became really loud. They were even coming up with suggested brand names for us like Tommy Jane and Tammy Joe,” said Fujimoto, who is also the head of merchandising. “We realized there is a void in the market and she’s being underserved, and we need to figure out what that void is.”
Fujimoto and Patterson developed the line over the course of two years and used the same three f’s — fit, fabric and function — they apply to the men’s line to create the women’s collection, which is made up of two fabrics and promises no visible panty lines, no waistbands that pinch and no bunching. Air is an ultralight mesh, antimicrobial stretch fabric with seamless, bonded edges. It comes in a thong, cheeky and a brief. Second Skin is a non-pilling, micro-modal fabric that will come

Teyana Taylor, GCDS to Debut Capsule Collection

MILAN — “I love strong, independent women who have made a name for themselves, with incredible energy,” said Giuliano Calza, founder and designer of Italian contemporary streetwear firm GCDS.
The brand is gearing up to debut a capsule collection codesigned with recording artist, dancer, fitness entrepreneur and social media phenomenon Teyana Taylor, who has 6.1 million Instagram followers.
The capsule collection, which is named “Harlem made,” pays homage to Taylor’s origins. “It’s streetwear, where the hood and high fashion meet. That’s always been me. It’s Harlem made, I am Harlem. So it represents me as well as the culture,” she explained. The lineup includes T-shirts, hoodies, bodysuits and accessories, which are priced from 20 euros for a pair of socks to 160 euros for a sweatshirt.
“Last summer, I was in Los Angeles and I came across this late Eighties T-shirt with [a picture of] Cher holding a rainbow flag in her hand, and it was one of her tour merchandise items,” explained Calza, who drew his inspiration from vintage items from that period. “Modern icons don’t communicate this strong way anymore,” he continued, highlighting that instead of chasing cool, the collection is aimed at celebrating Taylor’s uniqueness and diversity.
On April 6, GCDS is

Juicy Couture Track Collection Boasts Major Bling Courtesy of Swarovski

Juicy Couture continues to hit the refresh button on heritage styles — and why not, given all the love the Nineties are getting in fashion these days? The company’s latest track collection aims to turn heads with many of the pieces boasting Swarovski crystal embellishments and customizable details.
The 16-piece offering can be personalized via options such as monogramming or color selection. Prices range from $ 275 for a cropped jacket that can be customized to $ 1,750 for Swarovski-embellished velour shorts.
Designing the collection presented a moment to go back to the company’s roots, especially after creative director Jamie Mizrahi presented a fall collection that viewed Juicy Couture through the lens of the Seventies and Eighties. The collaboration with Swarovski is rooted in the brand’s heyday and is a nod to the crystal-embellished tracksuits of the Nineties, but with some modern twists, Mizrahi said.
“I think with every project we take on, whether it be our collections or collaborations, our first and foremost goal is to celebrate Juicy Couture as a brand, its heritage,” Mizrahi said. “It’s a widely recognized brand with a widely recognized aesthetic and we never want to lose sight of that Juicy girl.”
For Mizrahi, the past few seasons have been

Alexandre de Betak Auctions Off Personal Art Collection

SELLING UP: Alexandre de Betak is having the mother of all moving sales.
As the fashion show producer prepares to settle into his new Paris home next summer with his wife Sofia Sanchez de Betak and their baby daughter Sakura, he is auctioning off a lifetime’s collection of design objects ranging from a Darth Vader bust to a neon portrait of Gisele Bündchen.
Friends including Antoine Arnault and Natalia Vodianova, Christian Louboutin, Rick Owens and Michèle Lamy, Blanca Li and Bruno Frisoni flocked to Paris auction house Piasa to view the 188 lots that will go under the hammer on March 28 in the sale, titled “Alexandre de Betak, My Parisian Interior Art + Design.”

“This is the first time I’m selling anything. I’ve always collected thinking I would keep things my whole life. There are people who buy shares in order to leave a heritage. I always said I would leave kinetic art and design,” Betak said ruefully.
He started collecting Japanese robots in his teens, later graduating to furniture and kinetic art by the likes of Joel Stein and Marcello Morandini — not to mention lamps, lamps and more lamps. By his own admission, things were getting a

2(x)ist Partners With Mr Turk on Holiday Collection

Underwear brand 2(x)ist is trying out collaborations.
The company has teamed with Mr Turk, a men’s contemporary line, on a holiday collection that will be sold exclusively on 2(x)ist’s e-commerce site and within Mr Turk’s eight boutiques in the U.S.
“I think that collaborations are becoming even more relevant in the marketplace and it’s a great way to connect brands that have synergies and an overlapping consumer base,” said Tom Speight, the president and chief executive officer at 2(x)ist. Mr Turk is known for the use of unique prints and textures and we are known for our well-fitting underwear and loungewear. We speak to that Millennial consumer who likes fashion and is not afraid to be bold.”
The collection, which includes 12 stockkeeping units, is made up of popular 2(x)ist silhouettes in Mr Turk prints. It includes loungewear, underwear, onesies and special pieces like a smoking jacket-inspired robe. There will also be gift sets, that are new for 2(x)ist. Most of the collection is under $ 100, but certain items like the sleeping jacket will retail for $ 400.
According to Speight, the goal is to broaden distribution for spring 2019.

EXCLUSIVE: Off-White Releases Capsule Collection With Sunglass Hut

Off-White’s Virgil Abloh is jumping back into the sunglasses market, and this time in a big way: Abloh is collaborating with Sunglass Hut to launch a capsule collection.
The designer already has numerous collaborations under his belt, including Off-White c/o Jimmy Choo for spring; Nike c/o Virgil Abloh the Ten, and Off-White c/o Warby Parker in July 2017, which was his first foray into the eyewear market. But the partnership with Sunglass Hut is a first for his brand in terms of size and scope.
“Sunglass Hut and Luxottica offer Off-White exposure to a wide audience that might not know about the brand,” Abloh said when asked about the reason to partner with the eyewear company. Sunglass Hut offers Abloh a reach on a global scale, including Asia, Mexico, Australia, the U.K. and the U.S.
“I’ve always thought of sunglasses as an important accessory in a fashion context. It’s a small object that can give you the nuances of a brand’s opinion on design,” Abloh said. “For me, I was looking to incorporate classic shapes from the past with a youthful modern elegance. All lenses are flat, which gives each style the same edge.”

Influence Peddler: Chriselle Lim, J.O.A. Partner on Collection

Chriselle Lim is getting into the apparel game.
The superinfluencer has teamed with contemporary clothing brand J.O.A. on a 23-style ready-to-wear collection, Chriselle x J.O.A. The line, which will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom, will enter 40 doors across the U.S. and Canada and launch on nordstrom.com on March 15. The selection of versatile dresses, jumpsuits, tops and blazers — several of which can be worn in multiple ways — ranges in price from $ 59 to $ 124.
This is the first design collaboration for Lim, who called it a “waiting game on my end to find the right partner.”
“I’m always trying to shop for myself. It’s important for me to purchase things, especially with what I do. When you’re buying things on your own with your own money, you’re very conscious about what you’re spending, from quality to price point,” said Lim, pointing out that J.O.A. is a brand she discovered at Nordstrom about a year-and-a-half ago and has been buying ever since. “I felt comfortable with the price point [J.O.A.’s] and I felt satisfied with the quality. You never know when you shop online.”

Nasty Gal, Artist Jaydee Link Up for Statement-Making Collection

A point of view has never been something the Nasty Gal brand was ever lacking. The digital fashion firm on Thursday debuts a collaboration with New York mixed media artist Jaydee in a bid to up its game around International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month.
The strategy is twofold. The collaboration with Jaydee — who the brand found through Instagram — includes T-shirts, tote bags and a mix of denim and vegan leather jackets bearing various statements and designs created by the artist around female empowerment.
The jackets are priced from $ 140 to $ 180, T-shirts with an entry price point of $ 30 and totes are $ 16.
“International Women’s Day is something we’ve approached from a content standpoint the last few years,” said Nasty Gal editorial director Tiyana Grulovic. “We’ve been thinking about it for a really long time and we finally found our ideal partner in Jaydee. She’s an artist that’s self taught. She comes from a place of female empowerment and really clicked with our brand.…It was really important to us, as our first product launch on International Women’s Day, to get it right.”
Jaydee makes and sells clothing bearing her hand-painted designs, appliqué, embroidery and beading with past collaborations having linked

Asher Levine to Release Men’s Ready-to-Wear Collection

NEW YORK — Asher Levine is ready to bring his celebrity style to the masses.
The designer, who has dressed everyone from Lady Gaga and Whoopi Goldberg to Will.i.am and Bruno Mars, has created his first commercial ready-to-wear collection for fall.
The line will be shown by appointment during New York Fashion Week: Men’s, from Feb. 4 to 7, at a location on Orchard Street on the Lower East Side.
The shift in focus is part of a maturation of the label — which just snagged the women’s wear design award from Fashion Group International — that the now-29-year-old incorporated as a business in 2009.
“I started sewing as a kid,” said the Florida native during an interview at his Harlem studio, “and was president of the 4-H Silly Stitchers.” He moved to New York right after graduating from high school to attend Pace University’s business school, where he studied entrepreneurship. During college, he started working in the industry, for Geoffrey Beene and other companies, before receiving a call from Nicola Formichetti, stylist for Lady Gaga, who reached out to discuss Levine designing something for the entertainer.
He created an oversize leather biker jacket, and he was on his way.

Calvin Klein Collection RTW Fall 2018

Raf Simons marked his first year at Calvin Klein by filling the American Stock Exchange building with a silo’s worth of popcorn, not for people to eat but to wade through and sit in, for his fall show. My dad would say, “Waste not, want not, Raf.” But world hunger is a global issue, popcorn is not exactly nutritious and this collection was about America.
Belgian-born Simons came into CK with a wrecking ball, as everyone wanted him to, and remade the house of minimalist American sensuality from his particular outsider’s view of the USA. His shows have been full of bold, challenging fashion that has already proven very influential. (See the uptick in Western boots clomping catwalks near and far). Yet despite some very beautiful clothes, Simons hasn’t painted the prettiest picture of this country and its culture. To remind you, his spring show was partially inspired by an American nightmare, which does not read apolitical in these fraught administrative times.
The initial thoughts that came to mind waiting for the show to start — “Glad I never worked at a movie theater,” “Will PVH pick up the bill for everyone’s popcorn-covered dry-cleaning?” — yielded to “Does Raf Simons hate America?” after several

Dennis Basso Unveiling Daytime Ready-to-Wear in 35th Anniversary Collection

In tandem with the 35th anniversary of his eponymous label, Dennis Basso will introduce his first daytime ready-to-wear collection at his runway show Monday at St. Bartholomew’s Church during New York Fashion Week.
“We’ve found that as the world changes and rearranges, women are not getting as dressed up anymore,” observed Basso, who maintains a “fully vertical” 30,000-square-foot atelier in Long Island City, N.Y. “They’re wearing daytime clothes in the evening mixed with evening pieces and it’s evolved to a whole different level.”
Basso, who for years has made casual ready-to-wear pieces available at a lesser price point to customers of his QVC line, has called this latest collection “sporty,” but he asserts he won’t be producing high-end jogging suits — at least not yet.
“We’re making beautiful leather skirts, cashmere jackets and flannel with some embroidery,” continued Basso. “When I started out in 1983 nobody would ever wear a sparkle or hanging earrings in the afternoon. That’s all changed. Today everyone is mixing everything up and we’re able to incorporate this on the runway with, of course, the big gorgeous furs and eveningwear the Dennis Basso brand has been known for.”
“I’m coming out from the evening and going daytime,” added Basso with

Rabih Kayrouz Launches Eyewear Collection With Revel Paris

EYE SEE: Rabih Kayrouz is branching out into eyewear with the launch of a limited edition of sunglasses with French brand Revel Paris. The Lebanese designer celebrated the collaboration with a family-style dinner at the expansive space that houses his store, workshop and showroom in Paris.
Ballet dancer Marie-Agnès Gillot and writer Sophie Fontanel, who starred in his fall show during Paris Couture Week, sat with other guests on benches at two long tables decorated with candles and tall vases holding leafy branches. A buffet table groaned with homemade food.
At the back of the room, a display showed off the shades, which come in 32 variations: small, medium and round; with half or full frames, and in eight colors ranging from navy and tortoiseshell to absinthe and orange. The full frames feature a clear transparent line of crystal through the middle.

Jimmy Choo Creates Bejeweled Shoes for Gènavant Collection

CAMBRIDGE COUTURIER: In an unconventional fusion of stilettos and sapphires, pumps and pearls,  Jimmy Choo has added fine jewelry to his repertoire with Gènavant.
Choo has been working with his godson Reggie Hung on the collection, which was the subject of a one-day exhibition at the Cambridge International Art Gallery on Friday.
He and Hung unveiled a glittering selection of bejeweled shoes — and shoe-inspired jewelry — during the event, which drew clients, friends and family including Choo’s daughter Emily.
The shoemaker talked about the importance of craftsmanship and said Gènavant was created to keep the skills of fine jewelry alive.
“The main reason I’m here is for Reggie. The most important thing is the skill and I want to keep supporting the crafts and the craftsmen so they can create more beautiful things,” said Choo.
The shoes and jewelry on display were done purely for the show, and the exhibition is set to travel to London, Milan, Shanghai and Beijing.
The artisanal pieces were meant to evoke grace, peace and elegance, according to Choo. Heels were embellished with rubies, pearls, sapphires and other stones, making for some weighty shoes — with price points to match.
He said prices will range from 1 million pounds to 4 million

Gap Flashes Back Nearly 50 Years, and Decades In Between, for Collection

Ah, memories.
Gap Inc. will launch Archive Reissue — Logo Remix, a collection for men and women that includes T-shirts, sweatshirts and rugby shirts, designed with logos from across the decades of the brand, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2019. Logo Remix will be available at gap.com on Jan. 27 and select Gap stores globally beginning Jan. 29.
A limited-edition Logo Remix capsule featuring 30 one-of-a-kind items, made by deconstructing and reworking vintage Gap logo sweatshirts and T-shirts from the brand’s archives, was assembled by hand at Gap’s New York design studio.
A Logo Remix film is populated by a cast of  global talent that’s creating culture on their own terms through music, acting, comedy and activism. “They’re the world’s leading culture remixers,” said Craig Brommers, Gap’s chief marketing officer. “Gap is always one to celebrate and bring culture to the mainstream.”
The group, which includes Awkwafina, Bria Vinaite, Connor Franta, Maya Jama, Metro Boomin, Miles Heizer, Naomi Watanabe, Sabrina Claudio and SZA, will appear in a 30-second version of the film that will air on Sunday during the Grammy Awards.
If the music for the film sounds familiar, it’s Eighties anthem “Hold Me Now,” by the Thompson Twins, remixed by Boomin, who updated the original with his signature 808 beat, making it relevant to today’s hip-hop culture.

Billionaire Boys Club, Italia Independent Team Up on Co-Branded Collection

MILAN — Two of the most stylish boys in the world are collaborating on a special project.
Pharrell Williams and Lapo Elkann have teamed up to create a co-branded clothing and eyewear collection, which is expected to be unveiled in June.
The agreement was signed between Williams’ hip streetwear fashion label Billionaire Boys Club and Elkann’s Italia Independent.
The Italian firm will produce under license the co-branded collection, which is meant to reflect the style of both companies.
“We are all very excited to enter this new chapter of eyewear with Billionaire Boys Club and Italia Independent,” said Williams. “Lapo and I have been friends for years so I’m glad we finally get to work together on this project.”
This partnership marks an important step in the re-launch of Italia Independent, which, along with consolidating its eyewear business, aims to expand its fashion offering.

Lapo Elkann 
Giovanni Gastel

Elkann paid respect to Williams’ work with his brand “because it tells a story that goes beyond the simple sale of clothing: it’s a club of people united by determination, love and enthusiasm for what they do, which are values that have also driven Italia Independent for ten years,” said Elkann. “The two creative teams will work with great empathy to create a collection that will

We look forward to bringing trusted, reliable and beautifully styled footwear to our customers throughout the country.”

Stefano Pilati Teases Upcoming Collection on Instagram, Again

PILATI’S ENCORE: Stefano Pilati has taken to Instagram Stories for the second time, revealing teaser images that suggest that his latest fashion project — revealed in June — is progressing, although he has yet to detail plans for it.
“For the second Instagram Stories story of Random Identities, the focus is on the fashion, as in the art used as the background of the 15 looks,” Pilati said to WWD over e-mail. He was referring to the images of his models, who are posed in front of artworks. “The brand concept is still in development and once more, the clothes aren’t for sale. #itisnotaboutsilhouettes #artbystefanopilati.”
Pilati plans to post 15 looks. The first ones include some male models wearing women’s clothes and some women wearing men’s wear. They are wearing trousers, coats and knee-length skirts in a palette of black, white, khaki and denim — and a little bit of brown. He also showed a striped leather bomber, slim suits, a belted dress, button-down shirts, sweaters as well as T-shirts.
It is understood that the artworks in the background were created by Pilati in the Nineties, before he embarked on his fashion career.

Only three months after her stellar debut catwalk season, Kaia Gerber has inked her first big design collaboration, with Karl Lagerfeld, no less. The 16-year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford has worked on a capsule collection that will hit stores in September, WWD has learned exclusively.
Consisting of ready-to-wear and accessories, including footwear, sunglasses and jewelry, the line is described as blending Lagerfeld’s Parisian chic aesthetic and Gerber’s signature West Coast casual style, which has garnered her 2.7 million followers on Instagram.
The Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia collection will launch globally in Karl Lagerfeld stores, online at Karl.com and with select wholesale partners.
Lagerfeld singled out Gerber as a rising talent months before her breakout season in September, which saw her walk the catwalk for 18 brands, including Calvin Klein, Prada, Saint Laurent and Versace.
She ended it with an honor most seasoned models would die for: Opening the Chanel show for Lagerfeld, who in addition to heading his own label is creative director of Chanel and Italian fur specialist Fendi.
“When Karl first told us his idea to collaborate with Kaia, we were all excited by the incredible potential and power of bringing their

EXCLUSIVE: Simon Spurr Unveils His First Collection for Eidos

MILAN — “Making the brand younger, clean, more modern and elevated, slighter closer to the Isaia brand but distinctively different” is the mission that Simon Spurr said he embraced when, in November, he joined Eidos, the Isaia company’s advanced contemporary firm.
The New York-based, British designer — who has worked in the men’s wear departments of labels including Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren before launching his namesake brand — presented his first Eidos collection exclusively to WWD in the new Isaia headquarters here.
In order to attract “more fashion costumers” but at the same time target a broad audience in terms of age, Spurr designed a versatile collection that, unlike the quintessentially Italian Isaia tailored line, is rooted in an international aesthetic.
In keeping with the British designer’s signature style, the lineup is focused on clean, lean silhouettes infused with a touch of “romanticism and sensitivity,” explained Spurr, who also highlighted the “wearability” of the collection.

Featuring more tailoring than in previous seasons, the Eidos fall 2018 effort offers impeccable slim suits, including styles with double-breasted jackets reworked to accommodate six vertical buttons, instead of four. While the overall silhouette of the pants is straight and slim,

EXCLUSIVE: Maison Margiela to Present First Men’s Collection Under John Galliano

MAN UP: With Paris Men’s Fashion Week set to kick off Tuesday, management at Maison Margiela has confirmed that the house on Friday will present the first men’s collection entirely created and developed under the direction of John Galliano.
The show will take place in the Salle Turenne of the Musée de l’Armée in the Hôtel des Invalides, a complex of buildings in the city’s 7th arrondissement containing museums and monuments relating to the military history of France.
Since joining the OTB-owned house in October 2014, Galliano has had no official involvement in the men’s collection, according to Riccardo Bellini, the house’s chief executive officer. It’s been a step-by-step process for the designer.
“Creating a new aesthetic language rooted in the maison’s couture spirit has always been at the core of Mr. Galliano’s creative vision for the future of the house. Rather than curating the past we have chosen to look at the future and John Galliano’s vision represents a forward-thinking view on the maison and its DNA,” he said. “This collection will offer an elevated and powerful new foundation for men’s wear, strongly positioned within the luxury arena.”
For men’s, the brand counts about 60 direct stores and around 400 multibrand and department stores worldwide.

Marchesa Unveils First Collection Since Harvey Weinstein Scandal

Will Marchesa survive?
That is just one of many interwoven sidebars to the huge, ongoing story of how the exposure of widespread workplace-related sexual misconduct will change the culture.
In the big picture a small sidebar, yet one of major significance to Marchesa principals Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig. As everyone knows, Chapman is the soon-to-be ex-wife of Harvey Weinstein, whose then-incredible Hollywood clout helped launch the brand and catapult it to red-carpet prominence.
Whether the company will ultimately survive the horror of Weinstein’s transgressions remains to be seen. In October, shortly after the news broke, WWD posed the question to a number of retailers. While several bridal stores expressed support for the brand and its principals, among major retailers, only Bergdorf Goodman’s Linda Fargo would go on the record. She noted that Bergdorf’s was the first store to commit to the brand in 2004, and that “We have been avid supporters of Georgina and Keren’s work ever since and hope to continue supporting the brand in the future.” Also in October, Berkshire Hathaway-owned Helzberg Diamonds put on hold the launch of a collection of Marchesa engagement rings.
Since then, there’s been little concrete news to report on Marchesa until now. With the pre-fall season 2018 season winding down,

Brooke Shields to Develop Apparel and Accessories Collection for QVC

BROOKE’S TAKE ON FASHION: Brooke Shields has created an apparel and accessories line exclusively for QVC called Brooke Shields Timeless. The contemporary collection will be unveiled on Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. EST with the full collection launching March 14 at 11 p.m. EST.
The 52-year-old actress and model has been closely associated with the fashion industry throughout her career, having modeled for Calvin Klein Jeans as a 15-year-old. More recently, Raf Simons, chief creative officer of Calvin Klein Inc., etched Shields’ image onto its jeans, and Shields modeled Calvin Klein Underwear in a sexy cover photo shoot for Social Life Magazine’s July 4 issue. Having acted both on stage and TV, written several books and developed an Icon collection for MAC, Shields currently appears in a major recurring role in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
This is her first apparel collection.
“After years of being dressed by professionals, I walked into my closet one day and realized I had lost sight of my own personal style,” said Shields. “I am incredibly passionate about this collection because I have created pieces that are not only chic, but that take the guesswork out of getting ready each morning. I can’t wait to share

Shepard Fairey’s Obey Label Joins Forces With Wildfang to Create the Rise + Riot Capsule Collection

RISING TIDES: Not about to be left behind during this time of great resistance, Obey, an art-infused socially conscious brand, has joined forces with the feminist label Wildfang to create a capsule collection.
The Rise + Riot collection is geared for those who want to fight the system and band together against oppression. In one of the more unexpected descriptions of a collaboration, the line was made as a sign of togetherness and getting angry. Apparently such ire can be found in three graphic T-shirts – cropped, long-sleeved and oversized; a hooded coat; trousers, and a “Dad” hat. Designed to speak for themselves, the garments are imprinted with such self-explanatory hand gestures as shaka, the peace sign, a middle finger, a heart shape and fist. The line launches on Wildfang’s site today and Obey’s on Jan. 15. Obey’s Instagram-driven sales account for 10 percent of the brand’s business.
This marks the first time Obey has collaborated with a women’s brand and executives sought out one with an authentic voice. The timing of the launch was scheduled to coincide with the first anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration and the Women’s March. Wild Fang’s creative director Taralyn Thuot said, “We wanted to represent the

Brock Collection Pre-Fall 2018

Fabrics were the starting point for Laura Vassar and Kris Brock’s pre-fall collection. The couple has a taste for the traditional, some might say old-fashioned even, tending toward taffeta, lace and an intense jacquard based on an old wallpaper dug up in the fabric library of one of their mills. Yet they balance their old-world romance with an eye for the now. Their signature corsetry was done with raw edges and undone cuts, cut in separates that could be worn with a skirt or layered over one of their fine knit ruffled dresses, or jeans. Working in ultralight cotton voile took the preciousness out of corseted gowns, giving them a sense of comfort and ease that one doesn’t typically associate with corsetry. They also upped their evening offering in silhouettes that felt more edgy and sophisticated compared to some of their flirtier work — a black long-sleeved embroidered slim tulle gown with an elaborate peplum and a similar silhouette in white lace that could easily wonder into bridal territory, a category that’s on the designers’ minds but not in their business plan yet.

Ermenegildo Zegna Couture to Debut XXX Collection in L.A.

Ermenegildo Zegna is making a play in the wearable fashion space with the debut of the Ermenegildo Zegna Couture XXX Collection at an event in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The collection of mix-and-match essentials retailing from $ 135 to $ 2,295 will be available at Zegna’s New York and Los Angeles boutiques from Tuesday and globally on Feb. 8.
The functional style concept comprising sweatshirts, denim, outerwear, caps and sneakers is made with natural and eco-friendly materials including pure cotton, recycled polyester and technical silk fabrics.

The street smart wardrobe will be unveiled for celebrities and VIPs at a party hosted by Zegna artistic director Alessandro Sartori and featuring his friend (and creative collaborator) Benjamin Millepied, whose L.A. Dance Project will perform at the Sheats-Goldstein residence wearing six exclusive XXX Collection pieces that will only be sold in the U.S.
“The Ermenegildo Zegna Couture XXX Collection represents the coolest, youngest and more energetic side of the Ermenegildo Zegna brand,” said Sartori. “What I really like is to link the Milan Ermenegildo Zegna

Gosha Rubchinskiy to Present Collection in Yekaterinburg

Gosha Rubchinskiy is inviting the fashion industry to discover another region in Russia.
The designer is to show his fall 2018 collection in Yekaterinburg, the fourth-largest city in the country. The city, which is a two- to three-hour flight from Moscow and Saint Petersburg, is known for its golden-domed Church of All Saints and its setting on the Iset River.
The show, scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 14, comes about six months before the 2018 World Cup that’s happening across Russia. Rubchinskiy has a partnership with Adidas Football and frequently references the popular sport in his collections.
This is the third successive time the designer has shown in Russia. Last season he opted for Saint Petersburg and the season before that he presented his collection in Kaliningrad, a remote city in Russia that’s along the Baltic Coast. The runway show took place in a building that used to operate as a youth cultural center during the Soviet era, a time period that the designer consistently references.
Rubchinskiy, who is also a photographer and filmmaker, introduced his label in 2008 and presented his first three shows in Moscow. He then moved to Paris for four seasons, from June 2014 to January 2016, as a protégé of

J.C. Penney Drops Russell Simmons’ Argyleculture Collection

J.C. Penney has decided to discontinue selling Russell Simmons’ Argyleculture brand in light of the sexual assault allegations that caused the hip-hop mogul to step down from the helm of his many companies on Thursday.
In a statement to WWD, the Plano, Tex.-based retailer, said: “In light of the recent allegations against Russell Simmons, J.C. Penney has decided to discontinue selling Argyleculture merchandise.”
Last fall, Penney’s took over from Macy’s as the primary distributor of the preppie-inspired urban brand Simmons founded over a decade ago.
The decision came as Simmons, who cofounded Def Jam and went on to start Def Comedy Jams, Phat Farm, Tantris Global Grind and more, released a statement Thursday stating that he would be leaving these businesses.
This follows a guest column by writer Jenny Lumet in the Hollywood Reporter accusing Simmons of making her have sex with him in 1991. Simmons has a different view, but said “feelings of fear and intimidation are real.”
According to Simmons, his companies will now be led by a group of executives, but he didn’t detail who or which companies they would be leading.
“The companies will now be run by a new and diverse generation of extraordinary executives who are moving the culture and consciousness

Charlotte Moss Creates Collection for Ibu

By Women, For Women: Charlotte Moss is spreading her wings.
The interior designer and lifestyle authority collaborated on fall clothing, jewelry, shoes and accessories for Ibu, a three-year-old brand offering artisanal wares handmade by women in 34 nations. Moss and Ibu founder and creative director Susan Walker showcased the goods Wednesday and Thursday at Ceylon et Cie in Dallas.
From a Panamanian mola clutch to a cream and black felted wool coat made in Kyrgyzstan, Charlotte Moss for Ibu merges ethnic motifs with urban sophistication.
“It’s almost evergreen,” said Moss, gazing at a rack of the designs. “A caftan is forever. I often look at it as, ‘How do I justify certain prices for fashion when you know it’s done next season?’ Now I want to dress like this. We’re a global world, and it’s global attire.”
Walker is a former minister and trained weaver who got the idea for Ibu while visiting Timor and noticing that tourist shops sold soulless trinkets instead of native craftwork.
“There are people who want to pay for the real deal,” she said. “Women were putting their stories into textiles, and it’s a cultural language. I wanted to save that and put money into the hands of the women

Nick Wooster Collaborates With Five Four on Capsule Collection

Five Four can now add Nick Wooster to its growing list of collaborators.
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.
“To say we’re excited to have him develop an entire collection for our Club subscription guys in addition to an e-commerce collaboration would be an understatement,” Izquieta said. “He has a very clear vision for how to create a truly diverse wardrobe that’s based off of very

Thom Browne Grows Collection, Business and Retail Footprint

MILAN — “It was time to bring it all home,” said Thom Browne of his focus on and the development of his namesake brand.
During a walk-through of his men’s pre-collection in Milan, which clearly showed how extensive his line has become, with every category expanding significantly, the designer explained how he is looking forward to the future as the company is expected to close 2017 with sales gain of 20 to 25 percent.
“I made a conscious decision a year ago to spend all of my time on my own brand, which is really coming together,” said Browne, adding that he had been “really happy” with his past collaborations. These include the Moncler Gamme Bleu line, whose last season was presented for spring 2018. As reported earlier this month, Remo Ruffini, chairman and chief executive officer of Moncler, said the company was also closing the Gamme Rouge collection, designed by Giambattista Valli, in line with a new strategy that is expected to be presented in February.
“I am evolving my brand, but making sure it’s my own way, so that you can see the Thom Browne sensibility. I am staying true to the label but reaching out to a bigger audience,” the designer explained.

Ilana Glazer and Phoebe Robinson Launch ‘Yaaas Queen’ Wildfang Collection

Ilana Glazer and Phoebe Robinson are adding two more titles to their already multihyphenate careers: comedy tour headliner and designer.
Glazer, best known as a co-creator and costar with Abbi Jacobson of the TV show “Broad City,” and Robinson, a comedian and writer who founded and cohosts with Jessica Williams the podcast “2 Dope Queens,” have created a limited collection of apparel with Wildfang, a women’s brand inspired by men’s wear with a feminist bent.
The mini collection — made up mainly of T-shirts, a tote, a hat and a bomber jacket that will be sold through Wildfang’s web site — features images of Glazer and Robinson, along with “Yaaas Queen Yaaas,” the long title for their upcoming and already sold-out YQY Comedy Tour.
The phrase is arguably one of the breakout moments of “Broad City” — memes, gifs and hashtags have all been made in its honor since the first network season of the show aired in early 2014 on Comedy Central. But Glazer and Robinson are quick to debunk any perception that they coined the term.
“As far as I know, the phrase ‘yaaas queen’ originates from queer people of color in the Eighties — drag ball culture and that vogue-ing tip,” Glazer said.

Helbers Suspends Collection Due to Production Woes

LONDON — Paul Helbers has put his eponymous men’s wear collection on ice due to production problems and confirmed Friday that the fall 2017 collection had not been delivered to clients.
The Dutch designer cited “a considerable controversy with our production coordination platform in Italy” and said “further development of the Helbers wardrobe will be put on hold for the moment.” He indicated that there were some quality issues. “The affordable high quality of the line is what we believe part of our initial success and requires a rigorous manufacturing standard.”
Helbers said that although the brand will be unavailable on the market, “I will continue to consult on collections, style, interior decoration, photography and visual communication.”
He said his signature brand would remain loyal to the ateliers with which it has been working, and that he is currently studying “alternative set-ups for the coordination of our production and logistics. The deliberate small scale of our company is to be able to work with specialized ateliers who can craft with skill and innovation.”
Helbers launched his first 20-piece collection in January 2016 in Paris, and became known for his laid-back tailoring, rich colors and fabrics. Before going solo, he did a five-year stint as

Alice McCall Fetes Collection in Los Angeles With Rainey Qualley

Australian designer Alice McCall, known for her colorful playsuits and rompers, showed off a new, elevated collection for spring 2018 in Los Angeles on Thursday night with help from campaign face Stella Maxwell and singer Rainey Qualley. The brand has become a favorite of “It” girl Kaia Gerber, who has worn it three times this month, as well as Emma Roberts and Chrissy Teigen.

“This can’t be just a hen party,” remarked McCall, who made sure that guests also brought male plus-ones to liven things up. While models mingled among the crowd wearing McCall’s shirred, sheer cocktail dresses, Qualley and her band Rainsford gave an acoustic performance in the living room. That later gave way to a raucous dance party with McCall leading the band of models.
