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

Barneys Beverly Hills Door First to Bow the High End Concept Shop

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.

Cottweiler Becomes First British Brand to Show at Seoul Fashion Week 

LONDON — The British Fashion Council is furthering its partnership with Seoul Fashion Week in support of emerging talent, with men’s wear label Cottweiler the first to benefit from the special relationship.
Cottweiler, the streetwear brand that won the 2016-17 International Woolmark Prize for men’s wear, will be the first British name to be sponsored at Seoul Fashion Week in March. The brand will restage its fall 2019 show alongside those of South Korean designers.
“We are very grateful to be given the opportunity by the BFC and Seoul Fashion Week to present our work to a wider audience and connect to our already growing fan base in South Korea,” said designers Matthew Dainty and Ben Cottrell of Cottweiler. “This will be our first venture outside of London Fashion Week and for it to be in a city that embraces cutting-edge style like no other is an exciting prospect.”
The BFC-Seoul partnership aims to support emerging British and South Korean talent through sponsorships and to provide them with the opportunity to showcase directly to buyers and media.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Each side of the Psycho Bunny store will

‘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.

EXCLUSIVE: Neil Barrett to Debut First London Store

MILAN — Neil Barrett is boosting its distribution with key openings and a new web site.
As a first step of a retail strategy aimed at bringing the brand founded in 1999 by British designer Neil Barrett in the most prestigious streets of the key international cities in the world, the fashion label is gearing up to unveil its first store in London.
Opening its doors just in time for the holiday season, the shop will occupy 2,153 square feet on Conduit Street in the heart of the Mayfair neighborhood and feature a “revisited, cozier version of the store concept by Zaha Hadid Architects, which is already on show in our 30 monobrand stores around the world,” said Neil Barrett chief executive officer Carlo Barone Lumaga, during an interview at the company’s headquarters in Milan.
“This is an important step for the brand and it’s even more relevant because Neil is British and he is very connected with his roots,” said Barone Lumaga, adding that the store will enable the brand to fully showcase its collection in a key market for the company. “We will definitely maintain our tight relationships with the British department stores and in the course of next year we will

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.”

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.

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.

First Look! Linda Hamilton Is Back in Action at 61 in Next Terminator Movie

Linda Hamilton — it’s good to have you back!

The actress, 61, is set to make a major comeback next year in her third film in the Terminator franchise. (The sequel is currently untitled.)

In a first look released by Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions, Hamilton means business as Sarah Connor, a woman hellbent on defending Earth from evil robots. She’s pictured armed with a rifle, a bulletproof vest and lots of ammunition.

Unlike the other two women in the photo — franchise newcomers Natalie Reyes as Dani Ramos and Mackenzie Davis as Grace — Hamilton sports her character’s signature aviator sunglasses. Talk about bada—.

The movie, which is currently in production, is billed as a sequel to James Cameron’s first two Terminator films: The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991). Three other films have since followed Cameron’s sequel, with the last in the franchise being Terminator: Genisys (2015), which starred Emilia Clarke and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Schwarzenegger, 71, is also starring in the upcoming movie, marking a reunion for Hamilton and the actor.

It opens November 22, 2019.

Descendant of Thieves to Open First Retail Store

Men’s brand Descendant of Thieves is not afraid of all the empty storefronts on Bleecker Street and will open its first brick-and-mortar store on the beleaguered strip in November.
The shop at 203 Bleecker is to house a 600-square-foot retail store and 1,000-square-foot showroom and office. The building has housed only two other tenants in its 100-year-plus existence: a bakery and a leather goods shop. It’s located on the east side of Sixth Avenue, near Minetta Street. Its design will be a nod to the history of the space and include vintage furnishings and vintage-inspired fixtures.
“Descendant of Thieves is going against the grain in leading a movement to bring back the independent shops of yesteryear and reignite New York City’s retail,” said Matteo Maniatty, creative director and cofounder of the brand. “We chose the 203 Bleecker Street landmarked location because we knew this was exactly where we wanted to be — among other independently owned businesses that give Greenwich Village its unique character.”
The store will showcase a variety of programming, including performances, art exhibitions and community events and also offer 60-minute delivery within New York.

Nancy Sinatra Sr., Frank Sinatra’s First Wife, Dies at 101

Nancy Sinatra Sr., the first wife of the legendary Rat Pack crooner Frank Sinatra and mother of his three children, died on Friday. She was 101.

Her eldest daughter, Nancy Sinatra Jr., confirmed the news on Twitter — writing, “My mother passed away peacefully tonight at the age of 101. She was a blessing and the light of my life. 😢💙.”

On her website, Nancy Jr. revealed that her mother died at 6:02 p.m.

“This may be the saddest post I’ve ever had to write,” Nancy Jr. said. “She fought hard to remain on this earth but time got the better of her.”

“Godspeed, Momma and thank you for everything you did for us and for the world,” she added.

Reps for Nancy Jr. did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Nancy Sr.’s death comes two decades after the death of “Ol’ Blue Eyes,” who died in 1998 at the age of 82 of a heart attack.

Born Nancy Barbato, she met Frank when they were both teenagers. The pair married in 1939 in Jersey City, New Jersey — Nancy Sr.’s hometown.

They’d live there as newlyweds for years, with Frank working as a singing waiter to get his music career started and Nancy Sr. working as a secretary while raising daughter Nancy Jr., born in 1940, and son Frank Jr., born in 1944.

Eventually, the family would move to Los Angeles, where Frank would find fame on the charts and on the movie screen. Daughter Christina Sinatra, known as Tina, was born in 1948.

But a headline-making extramarital affair drove the couple apart. They divorced in 1951, with Frank famously marrying actress Ava Gardner just weeks after the papers were signed. After that, he’d have marriages to Mia Farrow and Barbara Marx.

At the time of their divorce, Nancy Sr. was 33. She was given custody of their children, their home, a Cadillac and a percentage of his wealth.

She devoted her life to her children, PEOPLE reported in 1986, but made no secret of her desire to reconcile with their father.

Nancy Sr. never remarried, preferring to retain the status of a divorced woman and be Mrs. Nancy Sinatra for life rather than lose the Sinatra name.

“Once you’ve had the best…” she told friends.

Nancy Sr. is survived by Nancy Jr., 78, and Tina, 70. Frank Jr. died of cardiac arrest in 2016 at the age of 72.

EXCLUSIVE: Longchamp to Stage First Fashion Show in New York

PARIS — In one of the latest twists in the trans-Atlantic fashion show shuffle, Longchamp is planning to stage its first official runway show at New York Fashion Week this fall. Known for its best-selling Le Pliage bag, the French leather goods firm has expanded its ready-to-wear offering over recent years as part of its repositioning as a lifestyle brand.
The New York show is scheduled for Sept. 8, with the venue yet to be confirmed. The family-owned brand also plans to stage an event on its home turf at the Opéra Garnier in Paris on Sept. 11.
The NYFW show will cap Longchamp’s 70th anniversary celebrations and a U.S.-centric year for the brand. Building on its ambition to be seen as a fashion brand, Longchamp in May opened its Fifth Avenue flagship with a dedicated space for rtw and shoes in the center of the main floor, and launched a clothing and accessories capsule with Shayne Oliver. Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner, the new brand ambassador, is on board for four seasons, beginning with the fall 2018 campaign.
When asked if the New York show will be a one-off, Sophie Delafontaine, Longchamp’s artistic director, said: “We felt that this was the right time to take things to the next level and

Samantha Cameron Studio Files First Accounts, Sticks to Plan

LONDON — Samantha Cameron Studio Limited, owner of the Cefinn contemporary clothing brand, has filed its first financial statements with Companies House in the U.K. The company, which launched in 2016, also confirmed it is on track with its business plan.
Cefinn, an acronym of Samantha Cameron’s children’s names plus an extra C, launched in 2016 and began trading last year. It sells via its own website and at outlets including Selfridges, Net-a-porter, Matchesfashion.com, The Modist and Fenwick of Bond Street.
The accounts, published early Thursday on Companies House, the official register of U.K. businesses, are unaudited and abbreviated: British companies are required to file a full, audited profit and loss statement only when turnover exceeds 10.2 million pounds.
For the financial period ended Oct. 31, 2017 the business had assets of 271,828 pounds and registered 561,795 pounds in losses, which is not unusual for a clothing start-up such as Cefinn. Cameron is the sole director of the company, which had 10 employees at the time of the filing.
Cefinn had been trading for nine months when the accounts were filed at the end of fiscal 2017. Although the company does not disclose turnover, it said sales have doubled in the past three months of

Luann de Lesseps Says She’s 6 Months Sober as She Reunites with First Husband and Kids

Luann de Lesseps says she’s six months sober.

The Real Housewives of New York City star took to Instagram to document the milestone day, which she spent in Sag Harbor, New York, with her first husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps and their two kids, Noel and Victoria.

“Greatest reunion ever!” she captioned a photo of her and the Count. “Wonderful to spend the weekend with the kids and The Count. Also counting my blessings! Celebrating 6 months of sobriety! Happy 4th of July, everyone! @noeldelesseps @victoriadelesseps #onedayatatime #lovemyfamily #grateful #rhony #countess.”

De Lesseps, 53, was arrested last Christmas Eve in Palm Beach, Florida, and charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant. (She’s since pleaded not guilty and rejected a plea deal in February.)

She later apologized for the incident, admitting that being back in Palm Beach for the first time since she tied the knot with Tom D’Agostino Jr. before divorcing him seventh months later had “brought up long-buried emotions.”

She entered a treatment facility and began focusing on her personal wellbeing.

Speaking to PEOPLE in April, the Bravo star opened up about how she explained the arrest to her kids.

“I told my children I did something that I am not proud of, and I asked them to forgive me,” she said. “They were like, ‘We don’t care about that. We don’t care about what people think. We know who you are, and we love you and we’re here.’ They were great.”

Along with her kids, de Lesseps said she could count on her fellow Housewives to be there for her — regardless of the drama always being stirred up on screen.

“The Housewives can be really bitchy sometimes, but when push comes to shove and you’re down and you need to be picked up, the ladies were right there for me,” she said.

Despite what the incident cost her, de Lesseps said she found a silver lining and hasn’t resumed drinking.

“Unless I was humiliated publicly, I don’t think I would have done anything,” she said. “This was a warning. It was meant to happen so that I could take a step back and look at myself in a different way. I’m grateful to the universe for making me change my life.”

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

Gabriela Artigas & Company Opens First Retail Store on Melrose Avenue

Gabriela Artigas & Co., the 10-year-old Los Angeles-based jewelry brand that wholesales in more than 70 brick-and-mortar stores globally, has opened its first retail store at 7970 Melrose Avenue, a stone’s throw from Reformation, G-Star, Adidas Originals, Revolve showroom, Fred Segal and Jonathan Adler.
Influenced by their roots in Mexico City, sisters Gabriela and Tere Artigas, who are designer and director of sales, respectively, founded the line, which ranges from delicately minimalist earrings to bold architectural necklaces and bracelets, in 2008. The company formerly occupied a studio and private showroom space nearby, but when water damage forced them to move, they found the Melrose space and decided to try retail.

Tere and Gabriela Artigas in the Los Angeles boutique. 

“We’ve learned so much about our customer over the last decade that we felt confident enough to present our own space,” said the designer.
The 850-square-foot store is a design collaboration between the Artigas sisters and their friends Tatum Kendrick of Studio Hus; Hillary Taymour of contemporary apparel line Collina Strada, and their brother, Alex Artigas of Artless Corp., who custom designed the mid-century modern and minimalist-style furniture.

Bonobos Signs First Designer Collab With Thaddeus O’Neil

Bonobos has launched its first designer collaboration.
The digital brand, which was acquired by Walmart last year for $ 310 million, has tapped Thaddeus O’Neil for an upscale, casually skewed assortment of men’s wear that made its debut on its web site and in two of its Guideshop stores on Thursday.
The Bonobos x Thaddeus O’Neil collaboration was inspired by the work of American architect Buckminster Fuller and offers T-shirts, cabana shirts, swimwear, casual pants and shorts, sweaters, outerwear, swimwear, knitwear and accessories. Prices range from $ 78 to $ 348.
Katie Boiano, vice president of design for Bonobos, said about a year ago, the company decided it wanted to partner with a designer “and Thaddeus was a natural fit based on his personal style and aesthetic.” Bonobos was especially drawn to the “vibrant colors and easygoing styles” that are hallmarks of O’Neil’s collection.
Thaddeus O’Neil grew up surfing on Long Island and was a member of the CFDA Incubator program. He designs a unisex line that he describes as “playwear” — looks that are bohemian, beachy and inspired by surf culture. The Bonobos assortment pays homage to the ocean, the earth and wildlife.

After announcing the arrival of their fifth child on Saturday, Chip and Joanna Gaines revealed what name they’ve decided on for their son: Crew.

“Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here and we couldn’t be more in love,” Joanna, 40, wrote in an Instagram post featuring the baby boy’s first photos. “He made an unexpected (and speedy) entrance into the world two and a half weeks early — which is fitting given he was a sweet surprise from day one. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful.”

In the first of four images, the mother of five is seen looking at Crew as he sleeps in the hospital.

In other pictures featured in the same post, Chip can be seen comforting his wife, Joanna smiles while holding the baby and the whole family gathers around the new bundle of joy as Chip looks at the kids with pure excitement.

An additional post shared on her Instagram page shows the couple’s four oldest children —  Emmie Kay, 8, Duke, 9, Ella, 11, and Drake, 13 — standing outside their mother’s hospital room, eagerly awaiting news of their sibling’s arrival.

“One of my favorite pics a friend showed me after Crew was born,” captioned Joanna. “They couldn’t wait to meet their new baby brother ❤.”

While the word is most widely used as a slang term for a group of friends, according to Pamela Redmond Satran of Nameberry, as a name, Crew is just 23 years old!

The name made its very first appearance on the Social Security extended list in 1995, when it was given to a mere six baby boys. Crew’s use as a baby name grew quietly until 2005, when actor Joshua Morrow of The Young and the Restless chose it for his son.

Crew first broke into the U.S. top 1,000 names in 2010, and currently stands at No. 712, with 339 baby boys given the name last year.

Perhaps in an attempt to throw their fans off their decision to break with tradition, shortly after the couple announced they were expecting a fifth child, Chip asked a child named Gage to help him “think of a D-name” — presumably to match his older sons’ first initial.

Chip and Joanna recently opened up in a PEOPLE cover story about their expanding household, including how they split parenting duties.

“Chip is the best swaddler,” Joanna said. “He’s always been able to rock our babies to sleep. He’s like, ‘I’m going to be holding the baby the entire time!’ ”

Of diapering, she added, “We need to figure that one out again. I don’t even remember, but I do remember the blowouts and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ I’ve gotta get my stuff together. It’s coming!”

Joanna also shared that the couple may not be done having kids just yet. “I joke with my friends that I’m going to be that 45-year-old who’s pregnant,” she revealed. “Chip is such a kid at heart and we both love a big family. I’m open to whatever. I’m just having fun with it.”
