EXCLUSIVE: Faith Connexion Taps Swizz Beatz for Capsule Collection

THE BEAT GOES ON: Faith Connexion and Swizz Beatz are making things official.
The rapper, DJ and producer, who has long been a fan of the collaborative label, has designed a capsule collection of 11 pieces that will be shown at the brand’s spring 2019 presentation in Paris on June 21, and hit stores this fall.
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.

Net-a-porter on Keeping Exclusive Capsules Actually Exclusive

CAPSULE CRAZY–Another day, another “exclusive” capsule collection. If that adjective fails to excite any longer, you’d be joining a growing set of voices in that view.
Conscious of consumer fatigue and a saturation point for limited edition products, Net-a-porter is trying to reinvent the future of an exclusive capsule.
Calling it “a work in progress”,  Elizabeth von der Goltz, global buying director for Net-a-porter said, “We’ve done them for such a long time. All of them almost have to be brands–we can’t say we don’t [let them]–but we like to be the only retailer you’re doing an exclusive collection for the year.”
She continued: “We’re seeing so much out there it’s getting a bit noisy to keep it really special. Every design needs to be unique and different. It’s not just a coloration, it [needs to be] different from the past seasons,” she said.
Since von der Goltz joined Net-a-porter, collaboration highlights include the debut of a Balenciaga collection, the Fendi logo project and securing a role as Kith’s exclusive online retail partner for women’s.
“There’s so much competition than when [Net-a-porter] started,” von der Goltz said. “The number one focus is to offer the best curation, the best edit, and in the markets that we’re strong,

EXCLUSIVE: Beltology Unveils Collaboration With André Saraiva

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

Exclusive: Gucci to Join Paris Fashion Week This Fall

MILAN — Continuing to speak with a French accent this year, Gucci’s Alessandro Michele is joining Paris Fashion Week this fall, WWD has learned.
Decamping from Milan for one season, the Italian luxury brand is to parade its spring-summer 2019 collection in the French capital on Sept. 24. The show marks the crescendo of a three-part homage to France conceived by Michele, creative director.
“Gucci is a global brand with deep and vibrant Italian roots and a visionary French shareholder, Kering,” said Marco Bizzarri, president and chief executive officer of Gucci. “When Alessandro told me of his desire to present the new collection in Paris — continuing the French-inspired narrative — I thought it was a perfect way to continue the creative homage to France.”
Bizzarri underscored that the show date marks the “transition day between Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks to avoid impacting schedules. We will then look forward to returning to Milan in February 2019.”
While foregoing a show in Milan for the season, the company is planning a special event to be held at the Gucci Hub on Wednesday, Sept. 19, the second day of Milan Women’s Fashion Week, scheduled to run Sept. 18-24. Details about the event are being kept under wraps.

EXCLUSIVE: Stella McCartney’s Sketch for Meghan Markle’s Wedding Reception

PLAY IT AGAIN, STELLA: The Duchess of Sussex — her family and wedding guests — just couldn’t get enough of Stella McCartney this weekend. Although McCartney wasn’t the official dresser for Saturday’s nuptials, she certainly came close, creating outfits for the day under her Bespoke label.
After changing out of her white Givenchy Haute Couture gown, Meghan Markle moved onto Stella McCartney for the evening reception, by all accounts a lively affair during which the bride broke with tradition and made a speech.

She wore a sleeveless white silk crepe gown with a high collar, and bare shoulders, pairing the dress with Aquazzura satin shoes that had baby blue soles. The clean lines and silk fabric of McCartney’s dress echoed the minimal, unembellished dress she wore for her walk down the aisle.
“I am so proud and honored to have been chosen by the Duchess of Sussex to make her evening gown and represent British design,” said McCartney. “It has truly been one of the most humbling moments of my career and I am so proud of all the team on this stunning sunny royal day.”

EXCLUSIVE: Proenza Schouler Teams With Lancôme on Makeup Range

COLOR COLLABORATION: Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are teaming with Lancôme on a limited-edition makeup collection for fall, due out in July, WWD has learned.
The duo, whose fashion has been inspired by painters such as Carmen Herrera and Ellsworth Kelly, with distinctive approaches to color, was given carte blanche for their makeup creations.
“Lancôme has always represented the epitome of luxury beauty products, so it is like a dream come true to be able to collaborate with such an iconic and historic brand,” the duo said jointly in a statement.
Françoise Lehmann, general manager of Lancôme international, called Proenza Schouler fashion “the manifesto of a strong, free femininity. The idea of ‘empowerment’ is at the heart of their values, just as it has always been at the heart of the Lancôme philosophy.”
Proenza Schouler is the latest in a number of designer collaborations for Lancôme, which has worked on capsule color cosmetics lines with Olympia Le-Tan, Sonia Rykiel, Anthony Vaccarello, Jacquemus and Alber Elbaz — among others — in the past.
Proenza Schouler’s fragrance business is licensed to L’Oréal, also the owner of Lancôme.

Exclusive: Kim Kardashian West to Be Honored at CFDA Awards

If Donatella Versace, Naomi Campbell and Carolina Herrera, along with most of the biggest names in American fashion and various celebrity dates/presenters weren’t enough, Kim Kardashian West will grace the CFDA Fashion Awards next month as an honoree. Kardashian West is to be the first recipient of the CFDA Influencer Award.
According to CFDA president and chief executive officer Steven Kolb, it was all Tommy Hilfiger’s idea during the board meeting to decide the recipients of this year’s special honors. “Tommy Hilfiger said, ‘If you think about influencers and how they’ve changed our industry, I think we should acknowledge that,’” said Kolb. “[The board] all agreed that Kim was someone who has really impacted the industry and has changed the way brands are presented. She’s a friend of a lot of the designers and has had great influence on fashion globally.” Kolb said that with few exceptions — Rei Kawakubo and Johnny Depp among them — a condition of receiving a special award is mandatory attendance, to which Kardashian West agreed almost immediately.
Kolb couldn’t say whether the Influencer Award would be an ongoing thing after this year, but he did note the benefits that come with honoring a one-woman tentpole like

EXCLUSIVE: Chanel Picks Margot Robbie as Face of Coco Neige Line

 SNOW QUEEN: Just weeks after being introduced as the latest brand ambassador for Chanel, Margot Robbie has stepped in front of the lens of creative director Karl Lagerfeld to appear in her debut advertising campaign for the French luxury house.
The Australian actress has been selected as the face of Chanel’s first Coco Neige collection, set to hit Chanel boutiques in July and August in tandem with its fall ready-to-wear. The line, dedicated to winter sports and après-ski, mixes technical pieces with classic Chanel codes like tweed, leather and camellia motifs.
Robbie is pictured against a background of blue sky and clouds wearing items including a soft chunky sweater, a parka or a down jacket. The eight visuals will break from June 10 in the July editions of leading international magazines.
“This shoot was one of the greatest experiences of my career. The energy and vibe on set was so wonderful and collaborative,” Robbie said in a statement.
“One of the first things Karl Lagerfeld said to me was that we never need to take ourselves too seriously. He has such a creative mind and he knows exactly what he wants and the minute he captured it, we were moving onto the next shot.

EXCLUSIVE: Cartier Names Annabelle Wallis the New Face of Panthère de Cartier

Cartier is again teaming up with Hollywood and adding Annabelle Wallis to the fold as the new face of its Panthère de Cartier, WWD has learned.
The multilingual British actress who starred in “Peaky Blinders,” “The Mummy,” “The Tudors” and “The Man Who Would Be Bond” is being tapped as a brand ambassador.
“Behind her luminous complexion, blue eyes and gentle manner, the Maison discovered a great strength of character, a fearless spirit and a hunger for self-expression: the soul of a panther, driven and determined to turn convention on its head and get her teeth into something. Annabelle Wallis embodies the Panthère woman,” Cartier said in a statement.
The confirmation of Wallis is a continuation of a new advertising direction for the fine jewelry brand, which recently revealed Jake Gyllenhaal as the face of the Santos de Cartier collection.
The Cartier Panthère jewelry motif originated  in 1914, with the Panthère de Cartier watch launched in the Eighties and is a staple in the Cartier watch collection alongside the Tank, Santos de Cartier and Ballon Bleu De Cartier.

EXCLUSIVE: Aquazzura to Launch Men’s Line, Lifestyle-Oriented Concept

DUBAI — Edgardo Osorio, creator of the luxury footwear brand Aquazzura, has big plans for his company. Here to celebrate the opening of his flagship in the region, he revealed that he aims to launch a men’s line within the next 18 months.
“It’s going to be modern, elegant leisure,” said Osorio. “I expect at least 50 percent will be sneakers. But sneakers you can wear to the office with a suit.”
Osorio said there is a gap in the market for men’s. “Men’s right now is either too fashion or too conservative; there isn’t a lot in between. As a man who travels for work all over the world, I find it difficult to find things I like. I end up getting one thing here, one thing there. But generally men don’t shop like that. They prefer a one-stop shop.” Osorio is confident he can fill that need. “If you have a brand that offers modern shoes at a competitive price point that feel comfortable and are young and have that elegance to them in a casual way, that will be a winning element.”
He said the brand also plans to launch a more “lifestyle-oriented project.” This, he said, will take priority over

EXCLUSIVE: Porsche Design Fetes 40th Anniversary With a Special-edition Sunglass

Porsche Design is commemorating the 40th anniversary of its aviator sunglasses with a special-edition frame launching in mid April. The P’8478, as the aviator sunglasses are known, were the first frame on the market to provide an interchangeable lenses mechanism and the design has been left unchanged since.
“For the 40th anniversary edition of the P’8478 sunglasses, our designers at Studio FA Porsche wanted to make something special, but they didn’t want to compromise the well-known iconic design. Therefore we decided to implement a bi-color design — the first time we’ve done this to the P’8478. Previously, the frame and its hardware always matched,” said Karsten von Engeln, chief operating officer of Porsche Design of America. “Additionally, we decided to launch this edition accompanied by our three best-selling lenses from the past 40 years.”
The new special edition frame is made with a matte-black titanium frame, gradient gray lenses and gold nose-bridge. The frames come with four different pairs of lenses, a special travel case and are available in two sizes, each limited to 1,978 pairs to correlate with the 1978 release date.
“Sunglasses are one of our biggest categories,” Engeln said. “It’s very important to the business. We work very closely with Rodenstock

The star of films including “Brokeback Mountain” and “Stronger” will appear in a film advertisement for the timepiece due to be released this spring in movie theaters and online.
“Integrity, dedication and boundless curiosity: Jake Gyllenhaal embodies the Santos de Cartier man. A man who commits utterly and does nothing by halves. A man who defines fearless as honest and true to himself,” Cartier said in a statement on Monday.
“Jake Gyllenhaal reveals a new side to his talent with every film, performing a wide variety of roles. Cartier was drawn to his invincible style and fearless spirit,” it added.

EXCLUSIVE: Kris Van Assche Is Leaving Dior Homme

PARIS — Kris Van Assche is leaving Dior Homme after 11 years and will take up a new assignment within the LVMH Group, WWD has learned.
An official announcement is expected imminently, marking the first big change at Christian Dior Couture since Pietro Beccari arrived as chairman and chief executive officer six weeks ago.
Dior indicated Van Assche’s successor would be named “subsequently.”
According to sources, Kim Jones will take up the plum design role, two months after exiting as Louis Vuitton’s men’s artistic director, and reuniting him with Beccari, who had worked with the English designer when he was the No. 2 executive at Vuitton.
The same sources said Jones would present his first collection for Dior Homme in June.
He joins a clutch of prominent designers at Dior, headlined by Maria Grazia Chiuri, artistic director of women’s haute couture, ready-to-wear and accessory collections, and Victoire de Castellane, its fine jewelry designer since 1998.

EXCLUSIVE: Dior Confirms Kim Jones at Dior Homme

PARIS — Kim Jones is to present his first collection for Dior Homme in June as its new artistic director of ready-to-wear and accessory collections.
This confirms an earlier report on WWD.com that Jones, previously men’s artistic director at Louis Vuitton, would succeed Kris Van Assche in the plum role. Jones starts April 1.
Van Assche exits Dior Homme after leading the brand for 11 years and is expected to take up a new assignment within LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
The arrival of Jones represents the first big move by Pietro Beccari, who became chairman and chief executive officer at Christian Dior Couture six weeks ago after stints at Fendi and Vuitton.
“I am delighted to welcome Kim Jones, with whom I had the chance to collaborate previously at Louis Vuitton,” Beccari told WWD. “I admire his creative vision, which combines both his own inspirations of contemporary culture and his own reinterpretation of specific codes and heritage of a house. I am confident in his ability to recreate his universe within the maison Dior and imagine for Dior Homme an elegant and resolutely modern wardrobe.”
Jones joins a clutch of prominent designers at Dior, headlined by Maria Grazia Chiuri, artistic director of women’s haute couture,

EXCLUSIVE: Off-White Releases Capsule Collection With Sunglass Hut

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

Winchester: Exclusive New Poster – IGN First

Today, we have an exclusive new poster for Winchester, a horror film from Lionsgate and directors Michael and Peter Spierig that stars Helen Mirren, Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook and Angus Sampson. Winchester opens stateside February 2, 2018.

There are those who claim that the Winchester Mystery House is the most haunted house in America, and maybe even the world. Located in San Jose, California, the mansion was built by Sarah Winchester, the widow of William Winchester, who founded the lucrative Winchester Repeating Arms Company, and was under almost constant construction as it gradually became an eccentric architectural curiosity that, the story goes, contains the ghosts of people killed by Winchester rifles.

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.

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.

EXCLUSIVE: Model Christopher Cates Pens Letter Calling for Action Against Harassment

As the uproar continues over sexual harassment in industries stretching from entertainment to media to finance, the fashion world has remained relatively on the sidelines – until now.
On Saturday, The New York Times published a long-rumored story about alleged harassment of male models by the photographers Bruce Weber and Mario Testino. Both men, via statements their lawyers gave to the Times, vigorously denied the allegations made in the story, although Conde Nast and Conde Nast International both said Saturday that they would be severing ties with the two photographers – at least for now.
The Times’ story comes several months after model Cameron Russell created an Instagram account on which anonymous individuals posted stories about their mistreatment in the industry. Last October, Terry Richardson was dropped by the leading fashion magazine publishers but only after years of allegations surrounding his behavior, while model Jason Boyce filed a lawsuit against Weber in December claiming the photographer harassed him. Weber has denied those claims, as well.
In November, 27-year-old British model Edie Campbell penned an exclusive letter for WWD to the fashion industry in which she said, “We operate within a culture that is too accepting of abuse, in all of its manifestations,” going

Animal and tropical prints — including a jaunty parrot one — from the ready-to-wear collection, star embroidery and a geometric pattern have been cast onto boxers, briefs, rash guards, cover-ups, towels and sustainable beach totes made in Kenya. The color palette includes lavender, yellow, blush pink and bottle green for the organic cotton and recycled nylon fabrics.
McCartney said because she designs swimwear for women, it was only right that she should do the same for men, and that launching the collection felt like a natural progression.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to broaden the men’s collection. I wanted to explore an area of a man’s wardrobe that is important and is perhaps slightly under-designed at times. And I wanted to bring the personality of the man into swimwear, so the relationship of the man and the woman on the beach has consistency.”
The collection will drop at the designer’s boutiques and on her web site and will also be stocked at stores including Harrods, Matchesfashion.com and Mr Porter. Prices range from 155 pounds to 255 pounds for

HONG KONG — Much like the Indian weddings he often designs for, an outfit by Sabyasachi Mukherjee is a mélange of colors, intricate patterns and delight. Over the course of 16 years since he started his namesake couture label, the Kolkata native has become feted not just for his design sensibilities, but also for utilizing near forgotten arts-and-crafts traditions from around India.
On Nov. 2, Lane Crawford department store launched an exclusive collection of 29 ready-to-wear pieces from Mukherjee, a chance to get his aesthetic but in a more pared-down silhouette, accompanied by a display of 39 of his couture pieces. It is the first proper foray into East Asia for the designer, who is starting to make more noise globally.
Last month, he debuted a spikes-meets-sari collaboration of men’s and women’s shoes designed together with his friend Christian Louboutin. This most recent collaboration with Lane Crawford, however, was inspired by a visit to China Club, the members-only social establishment set up by the late David Tang.

N.E.R.D’s Illesteva collaboration and ComplexCon performance no doubt add to evidence that the group is readying a musical return. Williams has repeatedly confirmed that the group is preparing a new album, though he’s declined to reveal a release date.

EXCLUSIVE: Balenciaga’s Avenue Montaigne Store Opens Sept. 23

INDUSTRIAL CHIC: Balenciaga is to open a boutique Saturday on Avenue Montaigne, transporting the design concept of its minimalist Rue Saint-Honoré store to the tony luxury strip.
The Haussmannian space has been outfitted with industrial touches, such as warehouse conveyor rails, aluminum display tables and slick, gray flooring in resin. Flat benches with thin, khaki-colored velvet cushions contrast with the shell of an old fireplace, original molding and marks from kids who once drew on the walls.
Artwork by American street artist Mark Jenkins is scattered around the store, including the figure of a woman in an oversized, puffy jacket slumped against a smooth, white wall.
With the opening, the brand will count three stores in Paris. The new Avenue Montaigne address, to be Balenciaga’s new Paris flagship, is its second foothold in the golden triangle district, one of the French capital’s most exclusive neighborhoods.
Balenciaga has shuttered its men’s store on Rue de Varenne.
The label has a handful of other locations designed under the eye of its artistic director Demna Gvasalia, including in London and on Madison Avenue in New York.

After a four-year run, Suite 1521, which hosted members-only trunk show events, is winding down its business.
The company was cofounded by Kim Kassel and Lizzie Tisch, longtime friends who set out to reinvigorate the personal shopping experience.
“We’re canceling all of our fall events and we are going to stay open through our shipping period, which will probably be March,” Kassel said on Tuesday. “We have fall and resort orders to ship. We will be fulfilling all of our commitments to our designers and fulfilling all of our orders to our clients.”
The company occupies a 4,000-square-foot showroom and offices at 980 Madison Avenue in New York.
Tisch said the partners couldn’t pinpoint a specific reason for the closing and there were many factors at play. “We had a real specific vision for the business, and it was all about the experience and we tried a number of different avenues. When we really sat down and started to think about how hard we’ve worked over the past four years and where this is going, we just came to the conclusion that after four years, that it would be the best decision for both of us and our team to close,” Tisch said.

EXCLUSIVE: Sir Anthony Hopkins Fronts Brioni Ads for Fall

MILAN – Further shaping the new course of its communication strategy, Brioni has tapped another legendary actor to front its fall ads: Sir Anthony Hopkins.
The black-and-white portraits were lensed in Los Angeles by Gregory Harris. Hopkins follows Samuel L. Jackson, who was also photographed by Harris for the brand’s spring ads.
The new campaign will break in airport billboards in Rome, at Milan’s Malpensa, and in Beijing on Sept. 1. It will then be rolled out in business and financial newspapers in Japan, Germany, the U.S. and U.K., including The Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, The New York Times, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and Nikkei Business Publications, as well as related newspaper supplements, such as T Magazine and WSJ. Magazine.
Brioni’s claim is “Tailoring Legends since 1945” – the date the company was founded in Rome – and the polished, sleek photos emphasize the house’s tailoring expertise.

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.

Doing something with Uniqlo means you come up with a wardrobe which is universal and quirky.”

Céline Debuts Exclusive Maxfield Pop-up Shop for Fall Collection

Céline and Maxfield on Thursday night debuted a pop-up shop at the L.A. retailer featuring an early selection of fall merchandise that will be exclusive to the tony boutique for the initial rollout through June 11.
Among the ready-to-wear items on display in Tommy Perse’s one-of-a-kind Jean Prouvé “Nomade” house, which has become a de facto museum for several of Maxfield’s European designers — taking “experiential” retail to a rarified level — are a satin-back crepe wrap dress and blouse in lipstick red and off-white; a fluid jersey dress with leather trim, and a pink shearling coat.
Leather goods include the Bowling bag, luggage and classic bags in crocodile and new Clasp bag styles Cabas, Soft Medium, and Flap. Exclusive styles for Maxfield include the Compact Trotteur in plum and the Frame in red with jade contrast.

The Medium Frame bag in jade & bright red shiny smooth calfskin is exclusive to Maxfield. 

There is also a selection of shoes including mules, sandals, heels and boots, and jewelry. Retail prices range from $ 300 for small leather goods to $ 29,300 for crocodile luggage.

EXCLUSIVE: Vlone to Show During Paris Men’s Fashion Week

It’s an interesting week for 25-year-old Harlem native A$ AP Bari to reveal he’s showing Vlone — his highly sought-after streetwear line — during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris.
It’s the same week Gucci has come under fire for a jacket Alessandro Michele presented at his Cruise 2018 show, which looked very similar to a piece Dapper Dan, another designer from Harlem, created in 1989 for Olympic gold medalist Diane Dixon. Dapper Dan, whose real name is Daniel Day, spent the Eighties outfitting celebrities in his custom pieces, which he made by printing luxury logos onto different fabrics. Critics were upset that Gucci wasn’t transparent about the reference. They later acknowledged his influence in an Instagram post.
“I feel like nobody should hate on what somebody gets inspired by,” said Bari, who is a member of the A$ AP Mob collective. “But it’s sad that it takes 20 or 25 years for them to be inspired by Dapper Dan when he could have been a designer for Gucci. Why didn’t Louis Vuitton give him an opportunity to design for them?”
Bari, who has no formal fashion training, is a reflection of how things are slowly shifting and brands are starting to work directly with streetwear designers.

EXCLUSIVE: Charles Cohen Buys Harrys of London

NEW YORK — Charles S. Cohen is expanding his men’s fashion portfolio.
The billionaire commercial real estate developer who purchased a majority stake in Savile Row tailor Richard James in March, has now bought Harrys of London. Terms of the deal for the U.K.-based footwear and accessories label were not disclosed. Harrys was acquired from Palladin Consumer Retail Partners, a Boston-based private equity firm that has owned a majority stake in the brand since 2014.
Following the playbook he established with Richard James, Cohen will assume the position of chairman of Harrys but will retain Steven Newey, Harry’s chief executive officer, to run the business on a day-to-day basis. At Richard James, Sean Dixon, cofounder and managing director, has remained with the label in that role.
“Harrys of London has been a brand I have supported and respected for a long time, bringing a unique mix of luxury, contemporary craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology and design,” Cohen said in an exclusive interview. “I am excited to have this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to partner with the brand and work closely with Steven and the rest of the team. We see huge potential for expansion across the U.S., London, Asia and the Middle East, and I am eager

Stephen Colbert Grills Trump In ‘Exclusive Interview’ On First 100 Days

Many artists and legislators told HuffPost that they were not fans of Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office, but that’s just fake news unless the president weighs in.

So what does Trump think?

In his “exclusive and totally not-edited conversation” with the president, Stephen Colbert attempts to get Trump’s take.

From NAFTA to an “unsuspecting woman’s behind,” Trump touches on all of it. 

The president even sums up his first 100 days in just four words: “It’s hurting the country.”

Wow, we thought he was going to go with, “Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic, fantastic.”

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.

EXCLUSIVE: Brioni Confirms Fabrizio Malverdi as New CEO

PARIS — Brioni has charged Fabrizio Malverdi, its new chief executive officer, with accelerating the international expansion of the elite Italian tailor following a period of turmoil, WWD has learned.
Brioni parent Kering said Malverdi, most recently ceo of Agent Provocateur, would assume the management helm on April 18 and report to Jean-François Palus, Kering’s group managing director.
This confirms a report in WWD on Feb. 28 that Malverdi was in line to succeed Gianluca Flore, who exited the role last month.
Malverdi is perhaps best known for his stints as managing director of Dior Homme and as ceo of Givenchy, where he accrued expertise in the high-end men’s wear market.
At Brioni, he will be tasked with repositioning the brand and bringing stability. The company has been in a state of flux after going through two creative directors in less than a year, confounding some customers and retailers. Issues linked to positioning, pricing and communication also weighed on the brand, as did a rationalization of its workforce at its headquarters in Penne, Italy.
Flore, a former Bottega Veneta executive, joined Brioni in November 2014 and handpicked Brioni’s former creative director Justin O’Shea, a women’s retail executive who had no design experience. O’Shea abruptly departed the

EXCLUSIVE: Givenchy Confirms Clare Waight Keller as Next Couturier

NEW YORK – Clare Waight Keller, Givenchy’s next artistic director, is to show her first collection for the French house during Paris Fashion Week in October and has been tasked with propelling its roots as a Fifties couture house further into the modern age.
“She has this great ability to break the rules and innovate without making a revolution,” said Givenchy chief executive officer Philippe Fortunato, who confirmed the hire exclusively to WWD. “Her very focused approach will help the brand in building the ongoing momentum we have – and taking it to the next level.”
An official announcement is expected later today, detailing that her creative responsibilities include women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories collections as well as couture. May 2 is her start date.
Waight Keller becomes Givenchy’s sixth couturier and the first woman at the creative helm, thrusting the former Chloé designer into the haute spotlight as Givenchy marks its 65th anniversary this year.
The fact of having for the first time a woman envisioning the brand, designing for women and men, is unique for the house. That by itself will give it a different angle and a different point of view from the past.
In a statement, Waight Keller said founder

Exclusive: Brioni Taps Samuel L. Jackson for Spring Ads

MILAN —  Brioni is going back to its tailoring roots by tapping legendary actor Samuel L. Jackson to front its sophisticated spring ads in a strong move away from the recent campaign portraying members of Metallica.
In the polished and sleek black-and-white images, Jackson strikes a pose by mostly looking straight into the camera.

Most recently, the American actor wore a blue velvet Bespoke Brioni suit at the Academy Awards and a suede blouson and cashmere sweater by the Italian brand at the Independent Spirit Awards. By choosing Jackson, Brioni underscores its longstanding link with Hollywood, from the on-screen James Bond character to actors ranging from Denzel Washington to Michael Keaton, to name a few.
Jackson, who has been featured in movies including “Pulp Fiction,” “Star Wars,” “Django Unchained” and “The Avengers,” was photographed in Los Angeles by Gregory Harris.

The campaign is part of a wider project titled “Tailoring Legends” — portraits of international leading men from different industries each with their own interpretation of the brand.

Exclusive: Calvin Klein Hosting God’s Love We Deliver Summer Party at Hamptons Home

Calvin Klein is set to host the annual God’s Love We Deliver Midsummer Night Drinks June 10 at his palatial Southampton, N.Y., waterfront home.
This will be the first time the designer has hosted the fund-raiser at his 10-acre seaside property, upon which he constructed a modern glass structure for a reported $ 75 million.
“It didn’t take much convincing since Calvin is such a strong supporter of the cause,” intimated a committee member of GLWD, which prepares and delivers nutritious meals to people living with advanced stages of HIV/AIDS in the New York area. “We’re all just thrilled to see the house,” added the insider.
On March 9, the organization raised $ 1.5 million at the Love Rocks NYC benefit concert at the Beacon Theatre. Emceed by Bill Murray, the sold-out show featured performances by Joe Walsh, Jackson Browne, Mavis Staples and Michael McDonald, among others.
“Play ‘Free Bird,’” shouted one rowdy concertgoer at GLWD President Karen Pearl’s speech ahead of a musical set that concluded with a rousing, yet predictable, rendition of “With a Little Help from My Friends,” featuring a house band led by “Late Show With David Letterman” alums Will Lee and Paul Shaffer.
