Martin Grant Pre-Fall 2019

Martin Grant’s pre-fall collection was inspired by a bouquet of autumn leaves he received — hence the warm tangerine and forest green hues, which marked a departure from his usual understated color palette.
It heightened the Seventies vibe of a collection that was heavy on outerwear, ranging from a crisp-looking orange pea coat to a belted, checked wool trench coat. It was a new variation on the beige trench that Meghan Markle wore on her trip to Australia and New Zealand in October, prompting a flurry of interest in the brand.
“Particularly those styles that she wore, we saw a real surge and we had a lot of interest,” Grant reported. “Our online stores have sold out and they want to reorder more, and it’s still going on.”
The designer is taking it in his stride — his clientele already includes the likes of Cate Blanchett, Lee Radziwill and Middle Eastern royals, drawn to the fuss-free elegance of his creations. Among the new propositions this season: flared pantsuits, striped blouses with billowing sleeves, and off-the-shoulder dresses for day or night.
Grant also likes to include statement pieces for evening: in this case, a tent dress featuring a retro sunset print, which also found its

Martin Grant Pre-Fall 2018

Martin Grant just launched a capsule collection for men, so it was hardly surprising that his women’s pre-fall designs had an androgynous slant.
In fact, the designer only slightly tweaked some of his men’s styles — including a trouser suit and an oversize navy coat — to adapt them to the female form. Call it a 180-degree switch: It was his tuxedo design for French director Nicole Garcia that originally led to him creating a similar style for men.
Not that it really matters: Grant’s daywear has always been grounded in luxurious staples, such as this season’s check coat with a removable shearling collar, or a jumbo cord trench. “Quiet luxury — I mean, it’s very much about the fabrics, the textures, a very, very soft fabric feel,” he said of the collection.
A case in point was a fuzzy gray alpaca sweater that read like a very upscale spin on a sweatshirt. It came in a women’s size, but Grant suggested borrowing the men’s version for an even roomier fit. The more overtly feminine options were easy yet chic: lightweight denim pieces with topstitched details, a black jersey turtleneck dress and a cocoon-like camel cape coat.
Grant left the eveningwear for later: As

Martin Grant Leaps Into Men’s Wear Amid Shift in Collections Calendar

PARIS — Martin Grant, whose razor-sharp tailoring has earned him fans including Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Connelly, is launching a capsule collection for men as part of a broader plan to switch the focus away from his main women’s collection and toward the pre-collection seasons.
Grant is set to unveil the men’s line, featuring between 15 and 20 designs, during presentations at his Paris showroom between Jan. 17 and 24.
Starting in July, the Australian designer, whose last catwalk show was held in October 2015, will resume runway presentations during Paris Couture Week showcasing his men’s designs alongside his women’s pre-fall collections and a smattering of couture.
He will present a few additions to the pre-collection to coincide with the main women’s ready-to-wear shows in March and October, but will no longer produce separate collections. Grant said the decision made sense, as pre-collections now account for 80 percent of his business.
“Logistically it’s much better for us, because it’s what the buyers want anyhow,” he told WWD during an exclusive preview of the men’s collection. “They’re putting all of their budget into the pre-collections, because they need the time to sell. For us, concentrating on that season gives us a longer lead time to develop the

Patrick Grant Dedicates Pop-up Space to Designer Peers

GROUP EFFORT: British designer Patrick Grant is lending a hand to emerging London talents with a pop-up shop called Basement at his E. Tautz flagship on Duke Street.
He tapped Topman’s creative director Gordon Richardson to curate the offer, which includes selections of labels including Lou Dalton, Mathew Miller, Alex Mullins and Louise Gray, who has done clothing and artwork for the space.
Grant said he wanted to set aside a dedicated space for his fellow designer friends who don’t have bricks-and-mortar stores of their own and added that he’s happy to welcome other brands.
“All the designers in here, I know personally very well. As designers we’ve all grown up together. We’ve shown together, we’ve done showrooms together. We have all grown up through the BFC’s [British Fashion Council’s] pipeline of New Gen. We’ve taken the last train home from Paris — we have all got drunk together. We are all really good-pals, so it made sense that we might sell together. And its great to have the support of Gordon, who has been mentor and friend to all of us.”
Prices range from 20 pounds for a Community Clothing T-shirt to 1,000 pounds for a Matthew Miller leather jacket. Both Gray and

Husker Du Drummer Grant Hart Dies at 56 Following Cancer Battle

Grant Hart, drummer and singer of the indie rock band Husker Du, has died at the age of 56.

Although the cause of death is unconfirmed, Hart had been battling cancer, according to Variety.

The news was confirmed by his bandmate Bob Mould in a Facebook post recounting how he met Hart in college and spent years making music together.

“The tragic news of Grant’s passing was not unexpected to me,” Mould wrote. “My deepest condolences and thoughts to Grant’s family, friends, and fans around the world. Grant Hart was a gifted visual artist, a wonderful story teller, and a frighteningly talented musician. Everyone touched by his spirit will always remember.”

He added, “Godspeed, Grant. I miss you. Be with the angels.”

The official Husker Du Facebook page also posted a black and white photo of Hart with no caption in the early morning hours of Thursday.

After the dissolution of Husker Du, he fronted the trio Nova Mob and also released several albums under his own name. His last solo release was 2013’s The Argument.

The Minneapolis band, which Hart formed with Mould and bassist Greg Norton in 1979, influenced many bands of the ’90s, including Green Day and the Pixies.

Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic once rebutted accolades of his band’s innovation, crediting the alternative rock band instead.

“What Nirvana did was nothing new; Husker Du did it before us,” he said, according to the Star Tribune.

Martin Grant Resort 2018

Martin Grant has come up with a solution for keeping armpits dry during a heat wave: air-conditioned sleeves.
Puff sleeves, leg-of-mutton arms and dropped armholes were just some of the hot-weather hacks the designer deployed in his resort collection, which featured breezy drawstring-collared blouses and cool djellaba styles that worked equally well for the beach and the city.
“I like the fact of mixing these ethnic influences with something that’s very clean and structured,” he said.
Grant worked with patterns including irregular stripes, dots and a coral-inspired print, the latter appearing on a belted black-and-white tunic dress. French workwear fabrics inspired a selection of outfits in light blue cotton poplin, including a wide-leg jumpsuit and a peasant blouse with puffed-up sleeves.
Eveningwear skewed toward Eighties styles, with items like cocktail dresses in mismatched polka dot patterns with major sleeve action. Grant also worked that voluminous shoulder into an emerald-green silk top that delivered climate control with a theatrical flourish.

Cadillac Provides Grant to Seven Men’s Designers

With the departure of Amazon Fashion as the primary sponsor of New York Fashion Week: Men’s, Cadillac is stepping up its game this season.
Cadillac House, a one-year-old event space on Hudson Street, will serve as an official runway location for the third time. But the automotive company, which has sponsored the men’s-only event since its inaugural season in 2015, this time has provided grants to seven designers showing at the venue — Todd Snyder, Robert Geller, Dyne, Kenneth Ning, Matiere, Luar and Rochambeau — which were intended to “enable the designers to push boundaries and produce an experience beyond the traditional runway show,” according to Cadillac.
The designers chosen for the grants submitted proposals demonstrating how they would creatively reimagine Cadillac House during their shows for the spring season. As a result, Cadillac is paying the entire cost of staging their shows, according to the Council of Fashion Designers of America, which hosts the week. 
“It was important to us that our commitment to NYFW: Men’s continued to evolve this season, so we provided grants to help both established and emerging designers realize their most dynamic and compelling shows possible,” said Nathan Tan, associate director of brand partnerships and experiences for Cadillac. “To cut through the clutter today, designers need to think outside the box, but too often their vision can be limited by

Martin Grant RTW Fall 2017

Martin Grant peppered his fall collection with masculine staples like trouser suits, trenchcoats and striped shirting, some of which had a Seventies flair.
To wit: an asymmetric black corduroy cape with skinny flares, or a white double-breasted tuxedo jacket with extrawide pants. Worn with a black fedora, they channeled David Bowie, circa his Thin White Duke period.
Grant introduced more unusual textures for day, including a shearling-like cream wool fabric that was used for items including a leather-trimmed jacket and a V-neck top; dressier pieces came in a slinky satin-striped fabric, such as a black puff-sleeve dress and a powder-pink pajama suit.
He went ultra-feminine for evening, with a one-sleeve cocktail dress in metallic Lurex or a black long-sleeve gown embroidered at the neck with a beautiful abstract floral motif rendered in tiny Japanese pearls, sequins and French knots.
It made for a grounded and versatile wardrobe that illustrated the designer’s skill at navigating the masculine-feminine divide. His recent red carpet credits prove it: At the César awards, France’s equivalent to the Oscars, French actress Nathalie Baye wore a midnight-blue velvet column dress, while director Nicole Garcia opted for a black tuxedo.

Martin Grant Pre-Fall 2017

Oversized silhouettes — think masculine coats, extralarge shirts and flowing pants — were at the core of Martin Grant’s pre-fall collection.
The designer presented an array of terrific outerwear, from a sleek black wool trench to a cuddly shearling cocoon coat. They came in dressier fabrics for evening, with the trench done in retro-flavored burgundy velvet and the cocoon coat in dark brocade.
Tweed and corduroy riding skirts were paired with a fitted blazer or a furry alpaca bomber jacket for a casual take on city dressing. Trousers ranged from tweed canvas flares to luxurious silk velvet palazzo pants.
For warmer climes, Grant offered new variations on his signature shirtdresses, including a dusty yellow version that combined a buttoned-up long-sleeve top with a ruffled bottom. Classic blue-and-white men’s shirting was used to create generously cut shirts or a puff-sleeve blouse.
“I’ve been moving away a little bit from the more fitted, tailored silhouette that I’ve always done. Things have become a bit more oversized, so it just seemed to make sense,” he said of the masculine influences in the collection.
“Also, I think it’s almost a desire for me wanting to find a coat for myself, so I’m actually doing it in the women’s collection,”

Germany Gives $2 Million Grant to Better Cotton Initiative

Germany’s Federal Ministry has awarded a grant of 2 million euros, or $ 2.14 million, to the Better Cotton Initiative‘s Growth and Innovation Fund.
The fund helps BCI advance its goal of reaching 5 million farmers and accounting for 30 percent of global cotton production by 2020. In 2016, the fund invested more than 5 million euros, or $ 5.36 million, in projects. The Federal Ministry contribution will enable a significant scaling-up of the portfolio for the next season, BCI said. The ministry also became a BCI member.

The funding will be invested globally in training and capacity-building to address sustainability issues in cotton farming, including pesticide use, water efficiency and severe working conditions such as child labor, gender issues and unfair pay, BCI said.
Gerd Müller, Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, said: “Making globalization socially and environmentally fair — that is our common goal, both in our Textiles Partnership and in the Better Cotton Initiative. BCI is a leader in the effort to achieve better environmental and social standards in cotton production. Together with the private sector, civil society and producer country governments, we are defining standards.”
Alan McClay, chief executive officer of BCI, noted that the BCI Growth and Innovation Fund is a global
