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. Schottenstein said the plan

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.

The move reflects the company’s commitment to expand its offering — as well as growing in the U.S. and globally — toward different segments of the market moving in the same direction as its occasion dresses while offering pieces that can be used on a daily

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.

“The campaign will allow us to collect funds to support our actions, but also to alert the future generation to environmental issues,” David Bloch, head of corporate marketing partnerships at WWF International, said in a statement. “This collection proves that it is possible on a large scale to produce clothes that are better for the environment and for our children.”
The brand first joined forces with WWF in 2010 on an ocean-themed collection, and subsequently inked a partnership with the organization in 2011 covering issues including water management and environmental strategies designed to

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. He also produces a line of unisex eyewear. He was tapped to create the uniforms for Air Canada that some

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,

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.

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.

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.”

The items, which include hoodies, T-shirts, tracksuits and leather jackets, feature art by Nina Chanel Abney. Swizz Beatz collects works by the African-American artist, who explores race, gender, pop culture and politics in her brightly colored paintings, watercolors and collages.
“I love being partners with Faith because it’s the brand of freedom and the future. It’s also an honor to be working with the amazing Nina Chanel, who is a true artist in every form,” he said in a statement.
Faith Connexion president Maria Buccellati noted the tie-up was part of a long tradition of bringing together “creative souls” at the label, which has previously worked with influencer Sita Abellan, street artists Vincent Dacquin and Pisco Logik, and brands including Disney, Kappa and K-Way, among others.

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. Ferrari has shot a few seasonal campaigns for Maison Kitsuné in the past. Earlier this year the design duo

Paris Hilton Codesigns Collection With Boohoo.com

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.
Animal prints, slinky metallics, palm prints inspired by her hometown of Beverly Hills, and cheeky slogan pieces with her mottos such as “That’s Hot” comprise the 70-piece collection. Products retail from $ 15 to $ 70.
Hilton, the 37-year-old entrepreneur, TV personality, model, author, DJ and singer, told WWD that she discovered Boohoo.com on Instagram “and loved all their cute styles, designs and accessories they make.” She described the Boohoo collaboration as “very Paris, inspired by my life and style, the early 2000s, Beverly Hills and Ibiza.”
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. What better to follow with an icon from that era, Paris Hilton.” She said the retailer has been expanding its collaborations, and earlier this year worked with Zendaya

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

Blumarine Collaborates With Salvatore Piccione on Capsule Collection

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.
Eyewear has been made from recycled plastic in collaboration with Sea2See and will aid Ambiente Europeo, a European association that promotes awareness around waste-free seas in the

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

Tommy John Introduces Women’s Collection

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.

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.”

“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

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.

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.”
The unisex collection, made up of three styles, are each

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.”
In addition to being heavily involved in the design process — due to close proximity, she was able

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.

“It’s the first time I’m collaborating with another brand on an object other than my clothes,” said Kayrouz. “I wanted to start with the basic premise of a pair of glasses: two circles and an arm, and I started the design like that.”

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

Ralph Lauren to Release Limited-Edition Polo Snow Beach Collection

Ralph Lauren is mining its archives.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of its snowboarding collection, which included the lauded Snow Beach graphic, the brand is reintroducing vintage styles and dropping new designs.
On Jan. 25, the color capsule will be available in Ralph Lauren stores and Opening Ceremony in the U.S., and on Feb. 1, a black and white assortment will drop.
The color capsule consists of 10 pieces including the Snow Beach Pullover, a collector’s item, which rapper Raekwon wore in Wu-Tang Clan’s “Can It Be All So Simple” video, the red Snow Beach vest, high-top sneakers, a fanny pack, a bucket hat and the Cold Wave fitted cape.
The black-and-white line features eight styles ranging from a water-resistant nylon poncho and a rugby covered in patches. Shoppers will be able to customize garments at the Ralph Lauren shop on Price Street in New York. The lines retail from $ 69 to $ 395.

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

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.

EXCLUSIVE: Kaia Gerber Designs Capsule Collection With Karl Lagerfeld

PARIS — Move over, Gigi — there’s a new “It” girl in town.
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.

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.

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.

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. From color-block bombers to floral, foliage and hand-designed motifs, including a subtle XXX logo, the sartorial symbol for “fatto a mano” (hand-made), the fashion-forward urban wear is meant to be versatile and fun.
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.

The warm, breezy evening on the balcony of Chateau Marmont’s penthouse drew actresses Jaime King, Tallulah Belle Willis, Rebecca Dayan, Georgie Flores and Greer Grammer, as well as stylists Brit Elkin, Dani Michelle, Erica Cloud, Ilaria Urbinati, Jen Rade, Jeanann Williams, Jessica Paster, Lindsey Dupuis and Lysa Cooper.
“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.

Vanessa Traina, DECASO Curate Limited-Edition Vintage Home Collection

Two design forces have come together to curate a limited-edition collection of vintage pieces for the home.
Vanessa Traina, executive creative director of the holding company Assembled Brands, and online home decor marketplace DECASO, or the Decorative Arts Society, worked together to put together a collection of more than 60 vintage finds from 15 Los Angeles dealers, including Antique Rug Co., AW Gallery, Dana. John, Den Mobler, East Meets West Antiques, Gallery Girasole, Lumfardo, JW, Paul Marra, Pasadena Art Monkeys, Reform, Rewire, Robert Kuo, Susanne Hollis and UnHeim.
The pieces will be on sale through Oct. 19 at The Apartment by the Line — Los Angeles on Melrose Place.
“It just makes a world of sense for us,” Traina said of the partnership. “We were really looking to give as much attention to our interior community as our fashion community with The Line being a lifestyle brand. DECASO’s marketplace and selection of goods is so vast. It was a great opportunity to do something with a lot of local vendors and a really great and interesting experience to work with vendors that aren’t in our immediate network and take pieces that we wouldn’t necessarily have had in The Line and show them in

NEVER ENOUGH: Gucci is reinforcing its bond with emerging artists via yet another collaboration.
The fashion house has teamed with British artist Helen Downie, known under the moniker of Unskilled Worker, on a capsule collection of ready-to-wear, shoes, bags, silk and accessories.

Coming in dedicated packaging, for the first time the collection will be available simultaneously worldwide, launching exclusively on the brand’s online store on Oct. 11.
The launch will be supported through Gucci’s digital channels and the hashtag #unskilledworker, in addition to specific promotional activities including the creation of new art walls, fly posters and outdoor banners in key cities such as Milan, London, New York, Paris and Shanghai.
Gucci’s relationship with Unskilled Worker dates back to 2015, when the label’s creative director Alessandro Michele discovered her work on Instagram and invited her to take part in an art exhibition in Shanghai’s Minsheng Art Museum.

Dsquared2 to Launch Capsule Collection Against Online Bullying

MILAN — Dsquared2 founders and creative directors Dean and Dan Caten will launch a capsule collection in partnership with the cyber antibullying movement “Be Cool Be Nice.” A portion of the profits from the sale of the graphic lineup of apparel and accessories will go toward the foundation, which aims to stop online bullying of young adults and children.
“Online bullying is a powerful and scary issue that can have a lasting, negative impact on young people’s lives,” said Dean Caten. “We were bullied as kids and we understand how destructive it is,” added Dan Caten. The designers revealed they immediately joined the cause as “it’s important to give kids and teenagers who are forming their personalities space to discover themselves without judgment, criticism and hate.”
The capsule collection — which includes denim, sweatshirts, T-shirts, baseball caps, high-heeled sandals for women and sneakers for men — was conceived to channel “an attitude of strength, confidence and positivity.” Every item features the name of the foundation and the logo of the brand, contrasting the garment’s classic color palette of black, gray and white.

Sean Celebrates 20th Anniversary With Addition of New Collection

Sean Cassidy was on vacation in Paris when he discovered Emilie Lafaurie’s men’s wear collection and became enamored with the line’s updated traditional designs.
That chance meeting led to Cassidy tossing aside a career in children’s book marketing to become the exclusive distributor of Lafaurie’s collection in the U.S. through his own stores.
This September, Cassidy will mark the 20th anniversary of Sean, a three-unit men’s specialty store business that carries only Lafaurie’s designs. And to celebrate the milestone, the two are teaming to introduce Beau, a special capsule designed by Lafaurie to appeal to the Millennial man.
“I really don’t like the term ‘Millennial,’” Cassidy said, “but we’re targeting the guy who is just getting on his feet.”
Beau will consist of 40 pieces including suit separates, shirts and sweaters that can be mixed and matched to allow younger guys to look professional and polished but still contemporary. The collection is manufactured in Europe, primarily France, Portugal, Spain, Bulgaria and Germany.
Prices will range from $ 98 to $ 118 for shirts, $ 88 to $ 128 for sweaters, $ 98 to $ 128 for casual pants and $ 395 to $ 435 for suits. The average price for a Emilie Lafaurie suit is $ 600.

Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2018

Genuine provocation — there’s not enough of it in fashion. Raf Simons is determined to show us what we’ve been missing. He arrived at 205 West 39th Street, Calvin Klein’s longtime address and recently renamed, at his behest, Collection label, determined to tackle large questions of cultural resonance via the fashion genre. After two collections, it’s clear that Simons’ approach is to mine broad-stroke aspects of American culture, whether out of respect, curiosity or a yen to telegraph to skeptics (if any exist), his appropriateness for the creative helm of one of the great bastions of American fashion.
On Thursday night, the room was abuzz. Guests milled about, some in states of anticipatory glee, others in confused pursuit of their seats, as numerous tablet-wielding staffers had no clue about the room’s alphabetical arrangement. “Do you know where D is?” one guest asked a third floor guide. The answer: “No, but I’ll try to find it.”
Hence, a prolonged stroll under Sterling Ruby’s latest collaboration with Simons, the rafters now hung with colorful, exaggerated pompoms and banners representing the cheery high school life, but with grim sightings — an axe here or there — interrupting the frivolity. Sinister forces have a way of infiltrating

Paige-Turner: Rosie Huntington-Whitley and Paige Adams-Geller Collaborate on Collection

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is as much admired for her street style as her catwalk moves, and Paige designer Paige Adams-Geller counts herself among the model’s fans. So much so that the two have teamed up on a 20-piece collection called Rosie HW x Paige. Ranging from $ 148 to $ 1,195 retail, the collection will be available on paige.com from Thursday, but not before a preview party tonight at Paige’s store in Brentwood, Calif. The two women took a moment to discuss how they met, why they admire each other, and what they created together.

Sotheby’s to Exhibit and Auction Mario Testino’s Personal Art Collection

ART FOR AUCTION: London’s Sotheby’s will mount an exhibition and auction of works from Mario Testino’s personal art collection in September.
“I always wanted to collect things that weren’t like me,” Testino said. “I’ve always been excited by everything that makes me look at something differently.”
The Peruvian photographer has curated a showcase of more than 300 works from his own private collection. This includes paintings, photographs, works on paper and sculptures. The starting estimates of the lots up for live auction range from 10,000 pounds for “System of Display, D” by Adam Pendleton, to 800,000 pounds for Tauba Auerbach’s “Untitled.” Also to be auctioned are works by the likes of Wolfgang Tillmans, Gilbert & George and Anselm Kiefer.
“Personal and historical memory are common conceptual motifs in the works here,” said Brandei Estes, Sotheby’s head of photographs in London. “Inviting us to challenge our common preconceptions of what we understand to be true and real. The best art affords us a journey and exploration into new ways of thinking and understanding the world around us.”
The exhibition, titled “Shake It Up,” will run from Sept. 8 to 13 following a showcase in Los Angeles last week. Sotheby’s will later auction a selection of those

Fall Opening Planned for Ivanka Trump Collection Store in Trump Tower

IVANKA READY FOR FALL: The Ivanka Trump brand will be opening a boutique in Trump Tower this fall, according to sources.
As for whether the label’s full selection — dresses, sportswear, shoes, handbags, jewelry and accessories — will be available remains to be seen. A spokeswoman for the company declined comment Friday about any specifics regarding square footage, the actual launch date and whether company president Abigail Klem is concerned that the store may appear to some to be a conflict of interest even though Ivanka has stepped away from the company.
Prior to her father’s inauguaration in January, Trump announced that she would give up her role running her fashion brand as well as her post as executive vice president of acquisitions and development at the Trump Organization. Her stepping back followed the appointment of her husband Jared Kushner in as a senior adviser to the Trump administration. At that time, her husband’s attorney Jamie S. Gorelick said in a statement issued to Vanity Fair that Trump would also “sell all of her common stock and restructure her participation in Trump Organization transactions so that she no longer benefits from the profits.”
The new Ivanka Trump Collection store will not be the only

A. Sauvage to Launch Sportswear Collection After Moving Studio to L.A.

Adrien Sauvage, who established his men’s wear label A. Sauvage in London in 2010, has become the latest designer to decamp for Los Angeles, opening up a studio in Beverly Hills this summer.
“Basically I came here for Christmas holiday and I never went back,” said Sauvage, who said Robert Downey Jr. was among the first of his clients to encourage the move. Sauvage launched his line of contemporary suiting in Harrods, then opened his own shop on Bond Street, and today his made-to-measure pieces are also available online. He still travels back to London every eight weeks for his made-to-measure clients, but says the California lifestyle has inspired a new idea — a sportswear line due out in January.
“I surveyed the land of T-shirts. I thought two or three years ago the whole sportswear thing was going to go in the bin, but it’s still here. It’s even tweaked my own style a bit. My sportswear line is going to have a casual elegance, the whole seven days a week wardrobe. It’s perfect for getting on or off a plane,” he said. He is still exploring wholesale partners for the line.
Sauvage has several star NBA clients, such as Dwyane Wade,

Couturissimo Launches in China, Previews New Collection

SHANGHAI – Couturissimo, the one-year-old brand backed by the Asian Couture Federation [ACF] and charged with a mission to democratize couture, formally introduced itself to Chinese consumers Friday with the launch of a pop-up store.
The week-long pop-up in Huaihai Road’s K11 Mall is designed to allow consumers an opportunity to get up close and personal with Couturissimo’s current season garments, which are normally available via the brand’s online platform but are also increasingly appearing at trunk shows, as well as boutique-in-boutique and pop-up concepts around Asia and the rest of the world.
According to the brand’s founder, Dr. Frank Cintamani, who is also founding president of the Asian Couture Federation, Couturissimo is looking to an online-to-offline strategy in order to attract a wider customer base. As well as K11, the brand is working with Lane Crawford in China and is also in talks with Harrods and Selfridges in London.
“For quite a while people have been debating what is better, offline or online. I think the answer is to have both positions, in an intelligent manner. I think brick and mortar has been challenged quite dramatically, so for us not to have to go straight into only standalone boutique, but working with retail

EXCLUSIVE: Jonathan Anderson Takes a Tartan Turn for First Uniqlo Collection

LONDON — Jonathan Anderson was thinking “universal and quirky,” for the first J.W. Anderson collaboration with Uniqlo, a mash-up of urban, collegiate and military-inspired looks and basics in oversized proportions, tartan and stripes.
The 33-piece collection for Uniqlo’s LifeWear, which was first revealed in March, will launch on September 19 in the U.K., followed by other markets. The collection is for men and women with pieces including a duffle coat, an oversized striped turtleneck with ties around the wrists, a crewneck sweater with an abstract fish floating across the front, a tartan down jacket and a matching padded tote.

“The point of doing this collaboration was that I believe in democracy in fashion,” said Anderson. “What I hope will be achieved is that any age demographic can pick up and find something within the collection to relate to. Doing something with Uniqlo means you come up with a wardrobe which is universal and quirky.”

Strangers Come Together to Help Man With Down Syndrome Rebuild His Movie Collection After Fire

When a raging wildfire destroyed Mark Orsillo’s home and prized movie collection, strangers from around the country rallied together on Facebook to make sure that the 34-year-old man with Down Syndrome wouldn’t have to wait to begin rebuilding.

Orsillo and his parents only had about 20 minutes to evacuate their Oroville, California home as the fire approached on Saturday night. Danielle Devine, Orsillo’s sister, rushed to help her brother gather his belongings. Devine was able to fill two bags, but she knew she needed to rescue a portion of Orsillo’s collection of 300 movies. With time running out and no room to spare, she was only able to save about 20 DVDs. Her parents, Pastors Steve and Vicki Orsillo, saved what they were able to throw into their car.

When the family returned, they saw that the house they had lived in for 27 years—a house that Steve Orsillo built—was completely incinerated, and nothing was salvageable. “Mark’s apartment is attached to my parents’ house and both were just completely gone, just totally gone. That was our childhood home,” Devine tells PEOPLE. Her brother, meanwhile, was still reeling from the loss of his collection.

“DVDs for Mark are everything,” Devine says. “He watches them, talks about them, collects them and organizes them, they’re his hobby.”

On Monday, in an effort to help ease some of Orsillo’s pain, Devine posted to Facebook asking people to donate any unwanted DVDs to her brother. “He is an OCD movie collector and lost hundreds of movies,” she wrote in a Facebook post. “This is very hard for him.”

It didn’t take long for the movies to come rollin’ in.

Within hours, strangers from around the country left comments announcing the DVDs they were sending Orsillo’s way. They included movies and TV shows like Spider-Man, Kindergarten Cop, Harry Potter, and Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. “The response has been incredibly surprising,” Devine says.

As of Friday, Devine says her brother’s new collection has now reached close to 400 DVDs, and she thinks it may top a thousand in the coming weeks.

The family is doing well after the fire, Devine says, and Steve Orsillo plans to rebuild the house on the property. A donation page has been set up the assist the family and has already surpassed $ 12,000. And while it is wonderful her brother is getting attention, Devine wants to remind others that there were many families who lost their homes during the fire, and they need help, too. Today, the fire is 95-percent contained.

On Friday, Devine posted a heartwarming video of Orsillo seeing his new collection for the first time:

Devine, who played basketball at Arizona State, says her brother was always her biggest fan when she was on the court. “It’s really cool that I can return the favor now, because I am his biggest fan.”

“Mark is just the most loving person you’ll ever meet,” Devine continues. “He doesn’t have any bad days, he forgives everyone very easily and never gets offended. It’s almost like the love is being returned to him a million times over, and he deserves it more than anybody.”

“Yes I do!” Mark excitedly yells in the background.

Devine laughs. “Yes, you do,” she says.

Robert Geller Brings Forth New Collection

Robert Geller is branching out.
A perennial men’s wear favorite who launched his namesake collection in 2007, Geller will introduce an entirely new line for spring during New York Fashion Week: Men’s.
Called Gustav von Aschenbach, the collection will be lower priced than his namesake line and will make its debut at a presentation at Cadillac House at noon on July 11.
“This is a completely new project,” he said. “It is not a diffusion line.” As such, the collection will not bear his name anywhere on it. “I don’t want people to see it as a secondary line,” he stressed.
“I was trying to look at the market and see where there’s an opportunity,” he explained. Realizing that retailers were drawn to the Robert Geller collection but that its designer-level price points put the line out of reach for some, he set out to provide an alternative.
“We’re working with a new partner in Japan on this and found some great factories to produce it,” he said. So while the initial idea was to just test the new concept, it turned out so well that he will offer 40 styles in five separate colorways for a 200-piece collection. “When I saw the samples, I

Chris Paul on Five Four Collection and Being a Free Agent

NEW YORK – Chris Paul didn’t seem stressed about being a free agent.
The NBA player, who is currently between teams, was in good spirits on Tuesday night while celebrating the launch of his capsule collection with Five Four, a men’s wear subscription service, at Catch in the Meatpacking District.
“This is sort of my first time being a free agent, and I can see how it can become stressful and taxing and you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. But I’m so fortunate to have the family and support system that I have,” said Paul.
Although Paul has worked with the Jordan brand for the past 10 years, this is the first time he’s partnered with a fashion company. According to Paul, some of that had to do with his contract with the Nike-owned company, but a lot of it had to do with the relationships he built with Andres Izquieta and Dee Murthy, Five Four’s cofounders. Paul first met Izquieta and Murthy when he was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers and was intrigued by the Lob City sweatshirts that fans were wearing in the stands, which Five Four used to make.
“It’s been amazing to watch their growth since

Lacroix Taps Brian Kenny for 30th Anniversary Capsule Collection

PARIS — Christian Lacroix is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a capsule collection designed by New York-based multimedia artist Brian Kenny.
Kenny, known for creating collage-inspired banners and flags, reinterpreted some of the house’s best-known scarf designs and patterns to create original artworks used on two dozen products including T-shirts, mugs, cushions and phone covers.
Nicolas Topiol, chief executive officer of Christian Lacroix, said the celebration was designed to underline the activities of the house, which has focused on men’s wear, accessories and homewares since it went into administration in 2009.
“We feel at this point, with the recent history of the house, that we wanted to celebrate the past 30 years, but more importantly, the next 30 years,” Topiol said. “We really wanted to share the anniversary with the largest number of people possible.”
Available in limited quantities, the line will go on sale in early August at the Ron Robertson store in Santa Monica, Calif. Prices range from 12 euros for a small patch to 240 euros for a scarf.
“The U.S. has always been very important for the house of Lacroix. Obviously it’s a very French house and the roots are in couture, but at the same the U.S. press has supported Lacroix

Brock Collection Resort 2018

To all the hopelessly romantic women who daydream of dressing like a Renaissance maiden in a period piece yet know how that would look (ridiculous), there’s hope for you in Brock Collection. Laura Vassar and Kristopher Brock have found a way to bring the fairy tale ethos into modern-day without resorting to costume drama. Their antique floral-driven resort collection was a great example of this.
“We wanted the concept of floral on floral without being overwhelmed by a bunch of different florals,” said Brock, noting that they used a similar floral motif in different colors, scales and bases throughout the collection, which also pushed corset dressing in a versatile, unrestrictive way. Pretty and elegant, the whole lineup had a rustic, faded dreaminess to it, as Vassar and Brock worked in tulle, silk, taffeta and soft burlap.
A burlap off-the-shoulder corset top was layered over a tea-stained tulle floral print turtleneck and matching long pleated skirt. A sturdier tea-length silk dress with a corset bodice was trimmed in sculptural ruffles, one or two of them lined with horsehair to accentuate the female form. A lightweight sundresses with smocking details was sweet and naive. Two burlap corset dresses — one ivory, one flax-colored —

Mitchell & Ness Releases Swingman Collection

Mitchell & Ness is trying out a new collection.
The retro sportswear brand, which holds an eight-year licensing agreement with the NBA, will release the Swingman assortment. The collection consists of basketball jerseys and matching basketball shorts from former and current players.
“The Nineties are trending with oversized clothing and retro footwear, and sports apparel is the top complement for that trend,” said William Warren Jr., marketing manager at Mitchell & Ness. “Throwback jerseys have been very popular again since the reboom in 2013.”
The collection includes rookie jerseys from NBA’s current star players such as LeBron James and Stephen Curry, in addition to pieces from former basketball legends such as Magic Johnson and Allen Iverson. The jerseys retail for $ 130 and the shorts are priced at $ 75. They will be available this week on Mitchell & Ness’ e-commerce site, its flagship store in Philadelphia and select retailers.
Since Adidas sold the company to Juggernaut Capital Partners and Kevin Wulff last year, Mitchell & Ness has continued to double down on its heritage and expand. Earlier this year the company updated its Hardwood Classics department at the NBA flagship on Fifth Avenue in New York and they will continue their collaboration project with Just
