Gucci to Host Fast Company’s First European Innovation Festival

MILAN — “How do you live in an age of bewilderment, when the old stories have collapsed, and no new story has yet emerged to replace them?” This is one of the questions historian and author Yuval Noah Harari asks in his 2018 book “21 Lessons for the 21st Century” and which sparks a conversation on how technology is shaping and changing our society. It is not surprising then that Harari is one of the speakers of the first European Innovation Festival, staged by media brand Fast Company and for the first time hosted by Gucci.
Held between Milan and Florence July 9-11, “The Dawn of Superintelligence” will highlight the potential for collaboration between man and machine. Technological advancement and artificial intelligence bring both opportunities and challenges by combining computer science and human sensibility, and the festival was hailed as key in helping to discuss a topic stirring more questions than providing answers, said Marco Bizzarri, president and chief executive officer of Gucci, in an interview with WWD.
“The topic is of the moment, the use of data, intelligent machines and how they can change the future. The effect that all this can have on jobs, what does it mean, will machines

Eric Emanuel Opens First Solo Pop-up in NoLIta

Eric Emanuel is stepping out on his own. Following collaborations with Adidas and New Era, the streetwear designer has opened the first pop-up shop under his own name at 251 Elizabeth Street in New York.
In November 2018, Emanuel worked with New Era on a pop-up for the brand’s MLB apparel, followed by another with Adidas for the rerelease of the Adidas Rivalry in January.
But this shop, which will be open for three weeks beginning today, will be his first solo foray. It carries Emanuel’s signature basketball shorts in solid colors and Andy Warhol cow wallpaper-inspired patterns and colors and trucker caps. New product will be released every Friday, beginning with the Adidas Rivalry low-top, the 1986 sneaker initially made in France for NBA Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing, and later mesh floral and plaid shooting shirts and matching shorts. Emanuel wants the pop-up to feel like a home, hence the pink couch, wooden floors and yellow striped walls adorned with artwork.
 

The Syracuse, N.Y.-native achieved instant success by producing snakeskin basketball jerseys that were worn by rappers Travis Scott, Post Malone, A$ AP Rocky and Future, among others. Emanuel has since shifted his focus to basketball shorts.

Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner Fave Cloney Sets First Collaboration

From Giorgio Beverly Hills to Camp Beverly Hills to Juicy Couture, there is a long history of fashion brands that wink at — and ultimately export — L.A. culture on the backs of Hollywood stars. The latest one is Cloney. Kim Kardashian posted to Instagram about wearing the brand’s “Kim is my lawyer” hoodie while studying, Hailey Bieber quashed rumors of marital discord in a customized Cloney “Top Gun” “Bieber” hat and Spike Lee sported the brand’s Christopher Wallace (Notorious B.I.G.) birth announcement hoodie courtside at Staples Center in January.
On Thursday, the witty streetwear outfitter, which has 30 retail accounts worldwide, launches its first official collaboration with L.A.’s old-school haunt Dan Tana’s restaurant, with a capsule collection of hoodies and sweatpants, $ 150 to $ 185, rolling out at Fred Segal Sunset. For the uninitiated, Dan Tana’s is located in West Hollywood next to legendary rock-‘n’-roll-music venue the Troubadour, and has a red sauce Italian that hasn’t changed in 55 years. (No matter who you are, you’re treated the same; even if you are John Travolta, there’s going to be a wait.)

First Lady Melania Trump Again Dons Dior

After commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day in Portsmouth on Wednesday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania made their way to France for today’s ceremony marking the Normandy landings. Joining French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte, the President and First Lady paid tribute to service members from both countries who battled against Nazi soldiers in World War II. After the commemorative ceremony, including speeches by both of the presidents, and a viewing at the Normandy American Cemetery, there was a military fly-over at Omaha Beach. POTUS was then off to Calvados for a working lunch and bilateral meeting with Macron.
Given the pageantry that has been integral to the Trumps’ European trip, it is not surprising that FLOTUS suited up in primarily refined looks in subtle colors. For the second time this week, she chose Dior – in this case a black coat dress worn with Roger Vivier shoes with signature buckles for today’s tribute. FLOTUS is such as fan of Dior’s artistic director for women’s Maria Grazia Chiuri that she also wore custom Dior to Monday’s white tie dinner at Buckingham Palace.

First Lady Wears The Row for D-Day Commemoration

After two days of pageantry and politics in London, President Trump headed to the English coast to join Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, French President Emmanuel Macron and other politicians in Portsmouth to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
While the story of the Normandy landings was retold from the stage, First Lady Melania Trump listened in beside Greek President Prokopos Pavlopoulos, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
The First Lady went shopping in her closet, as they say, wearing a striking, flared coat dress from The Row that her stylist Herve Pierre purchased some time ago. Like the other daytime looks that Trump has sported during her London stay, the coat has a certain sensibility to it. Just as her choice of the beige Celine shirtdress had a Christian Dior New Look feel to it for a trip to 10 Downing Street, today’s ivory-colored style designed by Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen is of the same ilk. The voluminous toile skirt lends itself to movement, which there will be a lot of as the day progresses.

First Lady Melania Trump Dons Celine for Downing Street Garden Party

LONDON — First Lady Melania Trump swapped her summer whites for a more autumnal shade of khaki as Tuesday’s weather turned from warm and sunny to a more London shade of cold and gray.
She wore a fitted, beige Celine shirtdress for a garden party at Number 10 Downing Street, with Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband, Philip May.
She accented the all-business look with a black belt, gloves and matching crocodile Birkin bag. FLOTUS likes Celine so much that she wore a white shimmery dress from the house for last year’s White House holiday portrait.

Trump’s New York-based stylist Herve Pierre has made a habit of canvassing Madison Avenue boutiques and other designer outposts in the city in search of politically appropriate looks for his White House client.
Shopping off-the-rack, as he routinely does, requires a lot of legwork. He may have had his work cut out for him preparing for the London trip as Burberry is pretty much the only major luxury British brand with options fitting for a First Lady, and with several New York City locations.

Marchesi 1824 Opens First Global Outpost on London’s Mount Street

LONDON — Marchesi 1824, the Prada-owned Milanese patisserie, opened the doors to its first store outside Italy. Located in the heart of London on 117 Mount Street, the new store comes complete with a pastry counter, bakery and café.
Neighboring designer brands such as Simone Rocha, Christopher Kane and Huishan Zhang, the famous café will offer a wide range of pastries baked daily in-store, chocolates and the traditional Milanese panettone. The back of the shop, which spans 750 square feet, has been turned into a tea room.

The café has been redecorated in a way that respects the building’s pre-existing features and also references its historic shop on Via Santa Maria alla Porta in Milan, creating a balance between past and present.
The shop’s furniture, inspired by the current design of its Milanese counterparts on Via Montenapoleone and in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, feature cherry wood tones and blend in with the original features of the space, such as the visible partition in the entrance hall, the black-veined and yellow marble floors, as well as the original ceiling with exposed wooden beams.

Frescobol Carioca to Open First Stand-alone Pop-Up

Frescobol Carioca is testing the retail waters in the U.S.
The high-end Brazilian swimwear and casual sportswear label will open its first brick-and-mortar pop-up, a Summer Cabana, in Greenwich Village on May 20. The 600-square-foot shop at 400 Bleecker Street will be open through mid-August but may extend its stay if successful, according to cofounder Harry Brantly.
“We’re trying to be a premium luxury resortwear brand and that’s hard to do without an outpost in the U.S.,” he said. Brantly said the company did a comprehensive analysis of its business and saw that nearly 40 percent of its sales come from the U.S., “and the vast bulk of that is in New York.”
Although the sales are scattered throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn and other areas, the brand will start its retail experiment on Bleecker Street. “We’ve always loved the area and aspired to have a shop there,” he said.
He said if the pop-up is successful “we’ll go to the landlord with cap in hand” and extend the lease. “That’s the way retail is at the moment, and we’re keen to maintain our flexibility.” The brand is also considering pop-ups in Miami and Los Angeles.
In the States, Frescobol Carioca is also carried in Bergdorf Goodman,

Suitsupply Opens First Store in Paris

PARIS — Suitsupply has landed in France.
A stone’s throw from the Paris Opera, the Amsterdam-based men’s wear retailer has opened its first French store on Rue de La Paix in the 2nd arrondissement.
The 6,450-square-foot space, which was unveiled to the public on Thursday, will carry Suitsupply’s full collections, spanning men’s tailoring, outerwear, shoes and accessories, including the retailer’s newest style, a lightweight silk and wool blend suit, which was debuted in the Paris flagship.
“The decision to open in Paris was a no-brainer, as a big chunk of our online sales come from France,” said founder and chief executive officer Fokke de Jong.
“The French have an ingrained sense of elegance; they approach tailoring in an effortless way,” he continued. “We focus on the more elegant side of men’s fashion — basically, everything that has a jacket on. I think that will resonate well with the French customer.”
The privately held company chose to acknowledge the difficult timing of the opening, which comes a month after the Notre Dame fire: All sales made on the store’s opening day went to the Notre Dame restoration fund.

Dennis Basso Opens First Store in Qatar

An outdoor plaza shopping center anchored by Galeries Lafayette is the home to Dennis Basso’s first store in Doha.
Basso’s 1,800-square-foot unit is near the Cartier, Graff and Van Cleef & Arpels boutiques. Back in New York, the designer said Friday that he hopes this first store will lead to others in the Midde East. The opening was made possible through the Ali Bin Ali Holding company. Designed by Ali Bin Ali’s in-house team, Basso said the decor consists of a range of cream-colored interiors with pale gray marble and vaulted high ceilings. It is also a corner store, which allows for greater visibility, enhanced by the valet car service offered near the store’s entrance.
One of the greatest features from the designer’s point of view is the outdoor air conditioning provided by cool air that is blasted upward through grates. While Qatari woman generally wear abayas and head scarves on the street, their attire tends to be more colorful or embellished when at home, at special events or traveling. “When they’re going to a gala, they really want to be gala,” Basso said, adding that his collection was well-received at the launch, which included a dinner and an in-store event.

“Authenticity is, for me, not minding being myself anymore,” she says in the episode. “I’ve always wanted to be me, but when I was younger, I was very insecure. I started in this industry really young, and I think that you kind of create this other persona of yourself.”
The second episode, which will be released May 1, features Michael B. Jordan, the face of Coach men’s wear, who takes on the issues of inclusion in Hollywood, overcoming insecurity as a young actor and his dream to one day open a school.

Italian Textile and Fashion Industry Expects Only 1.5% Growth in First Half

MILAN — The Italian textile and fashion industry is expected to grow, but at a moderate pace.
According to projections released by industry association Sistema Moda Italia’s president Marino Vago on Wednesday, revenues for the sector are expected to gain only 1.5 percent in the first six months of the year compared to the same period in 2018. In particular, the textile area is forecast to grow 1.1 percent and the fashion division 1.9 percent.
In the January-June 2019 period, export will still be the industry’s driving force but will grow at a slower pace, gaining 1.8 percent compared to the 2.6 percent increase registered in the same period in 2018. Overall, the trade balance is expected to be up 2.5 percent.
Among the elements influencing the figures, Vago mentioned the European elections and a potential recession of the area’s economy, Brexit and the commercial situation between the U.S. and China.
The executive urged to keep a cautious approach given these challenges, which might interrupt the positive momentum the industry experienced in 2018.
Preliminary 2018 data released by the association showed that last year, sales were up 2.1 percent to 55.2 billion euros, with textile and fashion companies increasing at a different pace and reporting

ROLLING OUT: Barneys New York is looking to take the cannabis lifestyle to higher ground with a new concept shop rolling out to its Beverly Hills store first.
The High End launches with product from more than 30 brands, including an exclusive deal with Beboe. The assortment touches on categories that range from home and beauty to jewelry. Among the roster of product exclusives are Devambez rolling papers, custom-blown glass pipes by Caleb Siemmon and Laboratorio Pesaro ashtrays.
“As vast as the market is, it’s actually a really small community in terms of what everyone is doing,” said creative director Matthew Mazzucca about the competitive landscape. “No one is really addressing the home, the lifestyle product aspect of it. We have access to the best designers and vendors in the world and we’re able to partner with them on special collaborations. We looked at the concept and started speaking to people about a year ago to create special product people can use in their homes that’s functional, that’s meant to be left out and displayed.”
It’s the buys, which Mazzucca called “super elevated,” that Barneys thinks will give it a leg up on the competition.

Rhone to Open First Permanent Store in Hudson Yards

Rhone is taking the plunge into retail.
After testing the waters with a series of pop-ups the past several years, the buzzy men’s activewear brand will open its first permanent location at Hudson Yards next month.
Nate Checketts, Rhone’s cofounder and chief executive officer, said the 943-square-foot location on the second floor of Hudson Yards’ retail complex, will be located near M.Gemi and Mack Weldon and will “showcase a modern, sleek and streamlined design.”
Checketts said the company chose Hudson Yards for its first permanent location because he believes the location “is an incredibly unique opportunity for retailers. It is shifting the way Manhattan moves and works in a real way that hasn’t happened for some time in New York. With more than 1 million square feet of retail and mixed-use space, and more than 100 luxury and specialty retailers, Hudson Yard’s urban development allows us to showcase the Rhone brand on an unparalleled platform.”
But to whet its retail appetite until Hudson Yards opens, Rhone this week opened its latest temporary location, a pop-up at 1585 Broadway that it is calling the Midtown Manhattan Retail Experience.
The location in Times Square is intended to service the Rhone customers who “work in and around the

Max Mara to Hold Show at Bocconi University for First Time

IN WITH THE NEW: Max Mara and Sportmax are both opting for a new fashion show venue this season.
For the first time, Max Mara will hold it fall 2019 show at the Bocconi University on Milan’s Via Röentgen, scheduled for Feb. 21 at 9:30 a.m.

“Università Bocconi is a world class institution. Its graduates are movers and shakers in the worlds of economics, management, law, political science and public administration – and increasing numbers of them are women,” said Ian Griffiths, creative director of the Italian brand. “Both Max Mara and Bocconi represent powerful women, which is why we are proud to be the only brand to hold a runway show there.” The building, “designed by Grafton Architects, was the first winner of the World Building of the Year award in 2008 and was lauded for encapsulating the essence of Milan,” continued Griffiths. “It’s the perfect showcase for Max Mara’s quintessentially Italian design approach.”
The following day, the brand’s sister label Sportmax will show at the multifunctional space The Mall, in Piazza Lina Bo Bardi. The company said the location is “a new epicenter” in Milan, an example of mixing “tradition and innovation.” The contemporary architecture of The Mall is seen as fitting with the

Benetton to Hold First Show With Jean-Charles de Castelbajac

BENETTON’S NEW COLORS: United Colors of Benetton is planning its first runway show with the artistic direction of fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, who joined the Italian company in October. The show, to be held on Feb. 19, will kick off Milan Fashion Week, which is slated to end on Feb. 25.
The arrival of de Castelbajac, who is in charge of both the men’s and women’s collections, is a new role for the company,  and one hailed as a major step for the label, following the return of Luciano Benetton as chairman of the group in January last year.
De Castelbajac first launched his brand Ko & Co with his mother Jeanne-Blanche de Castelbajac in 1968 in Limoges. The designer inspired trends such as the “anti-fashion” movement and the alternative use of objects such as rags and sponges to decorate garments.
In 1974, he cofounded Iceberg, and in 1978, he launched the Jean-Charles de Castelbajac brand, which he left in 2016. Over the years, he has also collaborated with Max Mara, Ellesse, Courrèges, Rossignol and Le Coq Sportif. Blending punk and pop references, his style dovetails with Benetton’s use of strong colors and a whimsical and irreverent touch.

Homme Plissé Issey Miyake to Hold First Presentation in Paris

NEW PLEATS: Homme Plissé Issey Miyake, a men’s line from the Japanese designer, is holding its first presentation in Paris on Jan. 17.
Choreographed by Daniel Ezralow, the artistic presentation will take place at the Pompidou Center at 9 p.m., following the Issey Miyake show earlier in the day at 11 a.m. in the Palais de Tokyo. Ezralow choreographed a presentation for Homme Plissé Issey Miyake featuring the men’s gymnastics team of Aomori University in 2013. The Pompidou Center presentation will take place in same space as a recent exhibit on Japanese architect Tadao Ando, a large room with windows lining one side.
Homme Plissé Issey Miyake was established in 2013 as a masculine counterpart to Pleats Please, which was launched two decades prior. The clothing is meant to be light and comfortable, with uniform pleats to keep fabric from sticking too close to the skin.
Designed by Miyake and his teams, pieces to be featured in the presentation are part of the fall winter 2019 collection, with most of the items pleated after being cut and sewn. The line has been growing with an offer ranging from ath-leisure and casual style clothing to suits.

Thom Browne Attends First Ermenegildo Zegna Show

FAST FRIENDS: “He’s my new best friend, I love our friendship,” gushed Thom Browne of Gildo Zegna, chief executive officer of the Ermenegildo Zegna Group. Although his own show is slated for Paris next week, the designer took the time to fly to Milan to show his support for Zegna, which took a majority stake in Thom Browne Inc. at the end last August. While Browne demurred from detailing any specific future plan for the brand, he said there will be “a lot more stores opening in the next couple of years.”
In a sign of Zegna’s pull in China, Hong Kong singer and actor William Chan Wai-ting attended the show, flanked by, among others, the brand’s longtime friend, actor Daniel Brühl; model Winnie Harlow, who snapped photos of the looks throughout the show, and American actor McCaul Lombardi, who fronted Zegna’s advertising campaign with Robert De Niro in 2017. Michele Norsa, vice chairman of Missoni, was also at the show, having joined the board of Zegna in 2017.

The new collection will drop in Europe exclusively on the Nike app on Dec. 21. It will then be made available at all Nike stores, as of Jan. 10.
The collection marks a new strategy for the brand “to create with data-informed design.”
“This is really the first season we took a step back and looked at the way consumers were using the product. We spend an incredible amount of time working with athletes or people whose training is their prime pursuit and we know everything about them, so we said ‘Why don’t we apply some of that data-informed methodology to someone navigating the city?’” said Kurt Parker, vice president of apparel design at Nike.
“We pulled together a very international design team and found the insights to be very universal. The kid in Shanghai was living a very similar existence to the kid in London and parts of the U.S.,” Parker added.

Richard James Opens First U.S. Store on Park Avenue

NEW YORK — It took over a quarter century — and a new majority owner from America — but Savile Row tailor Richard James has finally opened his first store in the U.S.
The 2,260-square-foot boutique on the corner of 57th Street and Park Avenue is only the third store for the London-based brand, which was founded by James and Sean Dixon 26 years ago. In March 2017, Dixon inked a deal to sell a majority stake in the business to one of its longtime customers, Charles S. Cohen, a billionaire real estate mogul based in New York. Dixon, who retains a minority interest in the company, had been searching for an investor to take the business to the next level and help it expand internationally. James no longer has any financial stake in the brand.
“This is our first American store,” said Dixon, whose title is managing director. “Our plan has always been to open in the States, and New York is the obvious choice.” He added that the company had been searching for a long time for the “right opportunity and time,” and Cohen’s investment — and the fact that he owns the retail component of the pre-war building — was

First Lady Melania Trump Wears Reem Acra for G20 Leaders’ Dinner

With the G20 in full swing, the powers that be gathered Friday night at the leaders’ dinner at Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. First Lady Melania Trump dressed for the occasion in a custom Reem Acra column dress with a vintage belt and metallic pumps. Her yellow diamond stud earrings were chosen to accent the glittery belt. FLOTUS originally selected the dress for another occasion, but it turned out to be better suited for this one, her stylist Hervé Pierre said.
She and Acra, who is based in New York, are “very good friends,” and the designer suited up Trump for a formal dinner the night before last year’s inaugural, the stylist said. Describing Acra as “a dream,” Pierre said, “Designers can be difficult. [laughing] She is really nice.”
Of course, speculation centered on diplomatic relations, especially Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s welcome to Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as the overheard informal exchange between the prince and French President Emmanuel Macron. While Trump met with prime minister of India Narendra Modi and Japan’s prime minister Shinzō Abe earlier in the day, the dinner lends itself to more relaxed conversations among world leaders.

Psycho Bunny to Open First U.S. Retail Store in Miami

Psycho Bunny is jumping into the retail fray in Miami.
The New York-based men’s brand with the slightly maniacal rabbit logo with its teeth hanging over a skull and crossbones, is opening its first store in the Aventura Mall this fall.
The brand operates two stores in Panama, two in Mexico and will open one in Bogotá, Colombia, by the end of the year. There are also 17 retail locations in Japan, including a flagship in Shibuya.
The concept is a bit unorthodox since the store will have two iterations: a 1,400-square-foot space will open as a pop-up at the beginning of November and stay in operation through the middle of January. At that point, it will be closed until the middle of March when it will reopen permanently as a 1,600-square-foot flagship.
“Because of the timing of when we signed the lease, we needed more time to [create a flagship],” said Robert Goldman, who operates the brand with Robert Godley. So to capitalize on the holiday traffic, a pop-up was created that will replicate a working artist’s studio. It is being designed by the Montreal-based architectural firm, Aedifica, which has worked with Adidas, Aldo and others.

‘Made in France’ Brand Rue Begand Opens First Store

PARIS — One is in Troyes, a city in eastern France with a deep-rooted textile history. The other is located in the Haut Marais, a trendy shopping district in the center of Paris.
Rue Begand — the men’s fashion brand — has opened its first brick-and-mortar store on the Rue Charlot, after launching wholesale in January at L’Exception in France and United Arrows in Japan.
Doubling as the label’s headquarters, the shop sports a photo studio in its basement where the fall 2018 and spring 2019 collections were shot for the Rue Begand e-shop, set to launch in a couple of weeks.
Named after a street in Troyes that used to house a number of clothing workshops, the brand is a celebration of local savoir faire.
“Eighty percent of our clothes are made in Troyes,” said Rue Begand’s founder Samuel Granata, adding that the remaining part is manufactured in a nearby town, with a few of the more voluminous pieces being made in Tunisia.
Rue Begand works with L’Atelier d’Ariane, a historical clothing manufacturer based in Troyes run by Granata’s mother Véronique. “My family has had the atelier for over 20 years,” said the 25-year-old founder, who runs the brand with his brother Arthur. “I spent most of

Dsquared2 Revamps the Brand’s First Fragrance and Introduces a Women’s Version  

TIM-BER!: “We’re not killing trees anymore,” said Dean Caten of Dsquared2 at the exclusive launch of the brand’s revamped Wood fragrance, which no longer has wooden packaging.
The men’s and women’s fragrances — brown for the boys and pink for the girls — now takes the shape of a hefty beer bottle.
The 30-ml. bottle sells for 44 pounds and the 100-ml. bottle sells for 75 pounds. The fragrance launches at Harvey Nichols on Monday and the Caten brothers expressed the importance of launching exclusively with the department store.
“It’s important to give an exclusive to somebody because it makes it more important as opposed to coming out everywhere. It’s more intimate this way,” said Dean.
In May, Dsquared2 inked a licensing agreement with Euroitalia for the production and distribution of the brand’s fragrances, and Wood is the first perfume to be relaunched under this new partnership.
The men’s fragrance has been reworked while the women’s is a completely new scent created by perfumer Marie Salamagne. Both incorporate similar base notes such as white wood and ambrox.
“We’ve scrapped all of our other perfumes and since Wood was our first fragrance and our bestseller, we’re relaunching with this,” said Dan.

Document Journal Scores Hedi Slimane’s First Celine Cover

HEDI FIRST: While a divisive figure, Hedi Slimane is one of the biggest newsmakers in fashion right now. Getting the global exclusive on a cover for his first Celine collection, shot by Slimane himself, would be a boon for any publication. The one that made it happen, less than three weeks after Slimane’s debut Celine show, is Document Journal.
Slimane was given pure creative control over a cover — one of eight different covers — for the biannual publication’s 13th edition, which is on newsstands today. The day after the show in Paris, the designer photographed Hannah Motler in one of the collection’s many veiled cocktail hats for a close-up, black-and-white profile shot. It’s a stand-alone cover with no additional editorial, photographic or written content to accompany it inside the issue.
“Hedi’s been a longtime contributor to Document,” said Nick Vogelson, the publication’s editor in chief. “It’s something we’ve been discussing for a very long time to do his first cover and we were very fortunate to have him shoot it…Typically when we work with our contributors we give them a great deal of creativity in terms of what they want to execute so he had carte blanche for this.”

Huckberry Will Open First Shop in New York

Huckberry is jumping into the pop-up craze.
The San Francisco-based online men’s retailer will open its first retail location at 383 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village in November. The shop will feature “seven actionable adventures” that will highlight journeys ranging from a ​West Village Drinking Tour with Jack Kerouac to ​72 Hours in Iceland​. Each will offer a free itinerary that customers can take away from the store, insider perks at select stops such as discounts, VIP treatment, etc., and an edited selection of the season’s apparel, footwear, gear and gifts targeted to the specific adventure.
The pop-up will also offer a series of in-store events such as fireside chats and product demos. The first will be a question-and-answer with adventure photographer Chris Burkard on Nov. 6.

Chanel Unveils First Campaign With Penélope Cruz

CRUZ FOR CRUISE: Chanel has unveiled its first advertisements starring Penélope Cruz, who joins the likes of Margot Robbie and Kristen Stewart as the latest star to be lensed for a campaign by Karl Lagerfeld.
The black-and-white images show the Oscar-winning actress dressed in items from the label’s nautical-themed cruise collection, shown in May in front of a 330-foot-long replica ocean liner constructed in the middle of the Grand Palais in Paris.
Cruz brings a sensual warmth to the line’s tweed jackets and striped knits. In one image, she wears a checked tweed beret and a sweater emblazoned with La Pausa, the name of the villa in the South of France built by founder Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in the Thirties, which Lagerfeld used to christen his spectacular boat.
“It’s such an iconic brand and Karl is a genius, and I’ve been admiring everything he’s done since I was a little girl, so it’s such a pleasure working with him. He’s like the king of fashion and we had a really, really interesting photo shoot, so to be in front of his camera is an adventure,” Cruz told WWD in July.

Hedi Slimane Hits Back at Celine Critics in First Comments on Furor

RIGHT TO REPLY: Hedi Slimane has hit back at critics of his debut show for Celine, saying those who accused him of misogyny for showing women dressed in short skirts were conservative and puritanical, and suggesting there was a homophobic undertone to the outpouring of vitriol on social networks.
Slimane’s designs for women and men have polarized critics. In his program “5 Minutes de Mode by Loïc Prigent” on France’s TMC channel on Wednesday night, journalist Loïc Prigent featured some of the reactions, including the headline of Booth Moore’s review for the Hollywood Reporter: “Is Hedi Slimane the Donald Trump of Fashion?”
He also made public Slimane’s first comments on the brouhaha, in the form of quotes from an e-mailed statement shown on screen.
“It’s always very jarring and I always feel like people are talking about someone else. Besides, the spirit of the show was light and joyful, but lightness and insouciance are being called into question these days. I’ve already been through this at Saint Laurent,” Slimane was quoted as saying.
“You’re dealing with politics, conflicts of interest, cliques, a predictable attitude, but also staggering exaggerations of conservatism and puritanism,” the designer added. “Violence is a reflection of our time – the

Meghan Markle Reveals the Secret Way Her Wedding Veil Honored Her First Date with Prince Harry

It doesn’t get more romantic than this.

In a sneak peek from the upcoming HBO documentary Queen of the World, Meghan Markle opens up about the secret tribute to her first date with Prince Harry hidden within her spectacular 16-foot wedding veil.

While getting a chance to see her dress for the first time after tying the knot in May, Meghan, 37, reveals the special significance behind a “piece of blue fabric” stitched inside.

“Somewhere in here there’s a piece of blue fabric that’s stitched inside — it was my something blue,” Meghan remarks while inspecting the veil in the video above.

Sweetly, she adds, “It’s fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date.”

RELATED: See the Exciting Moment Meghan Markle Lays Eyes on Her Wedding Dress After the Big Day 

Of course, the cathedral-length veil also represented a special connection to the Commonwealth.

The bride’s headpiece, made from silk tulle, featured a trim of hand-embroidered flowers from each of the 53 counties in the Commonwealth, the family of nations linked to the U.K., in threads and organza.

“I’m really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together,” Meghan says in another clip. “And I think the other members of the family had a similar reaction and just appreciation for the fact that we understand how important this is for us and the role that we play, and the work that we’re going to continue to do within the Commonwealth countries.”

RELATED VIDEO: HBO’s Queen of the World: Meghan on Commonwealth Role

Meghan adds: “It was good news all around, I think, so I hope people like it as much as I liked helping to create it.”

Designer Clare Waight Keller previously told PEOPLE that the idea came to her after several conversations with Meghan about what “story” she wanted to tell with the celebration.

“There was a conversation early on about the story that we were going to tell through this wedding,” she said. “Part of what I wanted to do was talk to her about what type of stories they could be. The fact that her and Prince Harry will be working a lot in the Commonwealth was something that I thought was really intriguing and could be something built on to be part of the day.”

“We had different conversations back and forth and I came up with the idea of maybe representing each of the countries, the 53 countries of the Commonwealth, through their flora and fauna,” she added. “We both loved the story of that. It also meant that single one of those countries also journeyed up the aisle with her. It was a really poetic moment.”

RELATED VIDEO: Meghan Markle’s Mom Doria Had the Ultimate Proud Mom Moment at the Palace: I’m ‘Head Over Heels’

The documentary features members of the royal family speaking about Queen Elizabeth and the Commonwealth — and it will air just before Harry and Meghan head to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga on their first official tour of Commonwealth nations.

A palace source previously told PEOPLE that Meghan takes part in “a conversation, a stand-up chat” for the film. The series will also feature appearances from Harry, Prince Charles and Prince William.

Queen of the World premieres Monday, Oct. 1 on HBO at 8 p.m.

Milan Hosts First Alaïa Exhibition

AL FRESCO: After Paris and London, Milan is hosting an exhibition of designs by Azzedine Alaïa that in terms of setting is among the most spectacular yet.
At the opening night on Thursday, 21 looks were unveiled in the Galleria degli Arazzi of the storied Palazzo Clerici, under spectacular frescoes by 18th-century artist Giambattista Tiepolo.
Guests including Silvia Venturini Fendi, Delfina Delettrez, Fausto Puglisi, Alberta Ferretti, Anna Molinari, Caroline Vreeland, Giuseppe Zanotti and Carlo Capasa joined Alaïa’s partner Christoph von Weyhe and close friend Carla Sozzani at the event.
Olivier Saillard, the fashion historian who curated the show, said seeing the outfits in the gilded reception room, which also features tapestries and a wood marquetry floor, cast them in a fresh light.
“There are clothes I have handled dozens of times, and for example this little white dress, I think, looks a lot more alive here,” he said, pointing to a short Grecian-style draped jersey dress.
“It’s the first time that Azzedine Alaïa is the subject of an exhibition in Milan. It’s like a little appetizer in the hope of perhaps doing something bigger one day,” he added.
Supported by the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation and Vogue Italia, in partnership with Place Vendôme Qatar, “Azzedine Alaïa Couture

Carbon38’s First Retail Store Opens in Palisades Village

E-commerce destination Carbon38 is now a bicoastal brick-and-mortar presence with the graduation of its Bridgehampton pop-up to permanent status, and next week’s opening of a newly built boutique in Palisades Village.
Like the other boutiques in the retail center, Carbon38 was able to impart its own design aesthetic on the exterior as well as the interior. The 1,141-square-foot store designed by Montalba Architects features a blackened steel storefront and charred wood canopy riffing on the “carbon” in Carbon38, while the inside is clean, white Calcutta marble.

The interior of Carbon 38’s Palisades Village store. 

The store will carry items from the brand’s most recent collaborations with Cushnie, Alala and Selkie and offer complimentary tailoring, private shopping events, in-store panel discussions and a bar-style “community table” where customers can learn about the brand and product.
“We’ve been traipsing around different neighborhoods across the globe for a while, but I wanted our first store to be in our hometown,” said cofounder and chief executive officer Katie Warner Johnson. “Spaces and architecture are so important to us, and it’s rare to be walking into a space that’s wet clay, and a gift that it’s so close to home.”

Alex and Ani Lines up 15 ‘Warriors’ for the Eco-Conscious Brand’s First Influencer Campaign

INFLUENCING WARRIOR POSE: Add Alex and Ani to the list of brands that is introducing its first influencer campaign.
Making its debut Sept. 6, the “Warrior of the Soul” initiative will be rolled out on paid and organic social media, e-mail marketing, online retargeting ads and via the eco-conscious brand’s more than 100 retail locations in the U.S. The effort is a major pivot from traditional advertising to influencer marketing — a tool the Rhode Island-based Alex and Ani is employing for the first time.
To try to connect with a range of shoppers, there will be photography and video content spotlighting 15 Warriors from different backgrounds, demographics and locations in the U.S. Each Warrior will have his or her own boutique on Alex and Ani’s e-commerce site. The diversified approach is meant to drive sales to not just what’s trending, but what’s meaningful to these individuals and why.
The video series plays up fearlessness in the face of adversity, as evidenced by Warriors like model, activist and toxic shock syndrome survivor Lauren Wasser. She was filmed running for the first time after her second amputation. All of the influencers tell their stories through signs and symbols in Alex and Ani jewelry. Wasser,

Louis C.K. Returns to the Stage for First Stand-Up Set Since Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Nine months after Louis C.K. was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, the comedian reportedly returned to the stand-up stage on Sunday for a surprise set at the Comedy Cellar in New York City.

Club owner Noam Dworman told The New York Times that C.K., 50, took the stage for a 15-minute set around 11 p.m. local time, performing for a sold-out crowd of roughly 115 people.

The Louie star “was very relaxed,” and was dressed in a black V-neck T-shirt and gray pants, the outlet reported.

He did not mention the allegations against him, and instead worked his way through “typical Louis C.K. stuff” like racism, parades, and tips for waitresses. “It sounded just like he was trying to work out some new material,” Dworman explained to the Times. “Almost like any time of the last 10 years he would come in at the beginning of a new act.”

The audience greeted C.K. with a standing ovation, said Dworman to the Times — though one attendee has since called the club to object about the appearance, the owner recalled, wishing he had known in advance “so he could’ve decided whether to have been there or not.”

The New York Times published an article in November in which five women detailed their alleged experiences with C.K., including claims he masturbated in front of them.

Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov alleged that while with C.K. in his hotel room after their show at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in 2002, he “proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating.”

Comedian Rebecca Corry alleged that C.K. “asked if we could go to my dressing room so he could masturbate in front of me” while filming a TV pilot in 2005, and writer Abby Schachner alleged she heard him masturbating through the phone during a 2003 call. A fifth, anonymous woman alleged that while working on The Chris Rock Show in the late 1990s, C.K. masturbated while she sat with him in his office, and a co-worker corroborated her story to the Times.

RELATED: FX CEO Says Network ‘Didn’t Know’ About Louis C.K.’s Alleged Sexual Misconduct

C.K. responded with a lengthy statement in which he admitted that “these stories are true.”

He added, “The hardest regret to live with is what you’ve done to hurt someone else. And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them … I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen.”

Since then, FX severed ties with C.K., whose shows Louie and Better Things aired on the network. C.K. was dropped by all his reps, too, while Netflix cancelled an upcoming stand-up special and HBO cut all of his content from its library. Orchard also canceled the release of his film I Love You, Daddy — though C.K. bought the rights to the title back.

Chanel Creating First Men’s Makeup Line

BOY MAKEUP: Diving into the swelling men’s grooming trend, Chanel is launching its first makeup line for guys, a three-product range, starting in South Korea on Sept. 1.
The collection includes a tinted fluid, coming in four colors; a matte moisturizing lip balm, and four shades of eyebrow pencil.
Chanel’s Boy division, which already counts products such as handbags and a perfume, is named after Boy Capel, the lover and muse of Gabrielle Chanel.
“Just as Gabrielle Chanel borrowed elements from the men’s wardrobe to dress women, Chanel draws inspiration from the women’s world to write the vocabulary of a new personal aesthetic for men,” the company said in a statement. “Lines, colors, attitudes, gestures….There is no absolutely feminine or masculine prerequisite: Style alone defines the person we wish to be.
“By creating Boy de Chanel, its first makeup line for men, Chanel reaffirms the ever-changing codes of an unchanging vision: Beauty is not a matter of gender, it is a matter of style.”
The collection will be rolled out to the rest of the world in November on the house’s e-commerce platforms and in January 2019 in Chanel’s boutiques.
