Roland Mouret’s Debut Book Is a Meditation on Style, and Growing Up

LIVING IT UP: “I didn’t want a retrospective or a museum show. That can all happen when I’m dead,” said a vibrant Roland Mouret, who’s set to release his first book “Provoke, Attract, Seduce” on Nov. 6 (Rizzoli).
“Twenty years have gone by. I just wanted to consider what I’ve done, look at the clothes again and try to understand them — and my creative DNA,” said the designer from his town house, showroom and shop on Carlos Place in Mayfair.
The coffee-table book was created with Mouret’s longtime collaborator, Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou, the fashion stylist and editor of 10 Magazine, and the writer Alex Fury. In it, Mouret talks about his childhood growing up in Lourdes, France, as a butcher’s son, his early career as a model and move into fashion design, his love of women’s bodies and approach to design.
He looked into his archives and reshot all of the old looks as if they were new, working with photographers including Vanina Sorrenti, Alessio Bolzoni and Cedric Buchet. There are images of his pre-collections in there, too, along with arty collages by Brian Burn and a shoot called “Butcher’s Apron” by Tierney Gearon.
“The butcher’s apron was really the start of everything,” Mouret says in the

Asos Is Serious About Growing in the U.S.

British online retailer Asos on Monday held its inaugural New York presentation for the brand’s fall 2018 men’s wear collection with an eye toward growing its U.S. business, which head of men’s Nick Eley said is in second place, behind the U.K.
The e-tailer has ratcheted up its presence during New York Fashion Week: Men’s since July, when it held a party.
Primarily aimed at young adults — Eley said the average age is 20 — Asos sells more than 850 brands and its own range of clothing and accessories. The brand is making a push, offering plus sizes for men, which Eley called a “huge opportunity.”
In addition, Eley said the men’s and women’s sides of the business have started collaborating for the first time on trends, fabrics and more, the results of which will be fully realized with the spring 2019 collection.

The brand features an abundance of over-the-top fashion and glam items. After all, Asos was originally called As Seen on Screen when it launched in 1999, before its name was shortened to an acronym. “The Asos guy is going out more and is more confident with what he’s wearing,” said Eley.
The presentation was held at 393 NYC, a long, narrow gallerylike space

The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain


A NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER�”I was born at the beginning of it all, on the Red side-the Communist side-of the Iron Curtain.” Through annotated illustrations, journals, maps, and dreamscapes, Peter S�s shows what life was like for a child who loved to draw, proudly wore the red scarf of a Young Pioneer, stood guard at the giant statue of Stalin, and believed whatever he was told to believe. But adolescence brought questions. Cracks began to appear in the Iron Curtain, and news from the West slowly filtered into the country. S�s learned about beat poetry, rock ‘n’ roll, blue jeans, and Coca-Cola. He let his hair grow long, secretly read banned books, and joined a rock band. Then came the Prague Spring of 1968, and for a teenager who wanted to see the world and meet the Beatles, this was a magical time. It was short-lived, however, brought to a sudden and brutal end by the Soviet-led invasion. But this brief flowering had provided a glimpse of new possibilities-creativity could be discouraged but not easily killed. �By joining memory and history, S�s takes us on his extraordinary journey: from infant with paintbrush in hand to young man borne aloft by the wings of his art.�The Wall is a 2007 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year, a 2008 Caldecott Honor Book, a 2008 Bank Street – Best Children’s Book of the Year, the winner of the 2008 Boston Globe – Horn Book Award for N

Ryan Seacrest’s Growing Macy’s Line

Macy’s celebrity tie-ins have been a mixed bag. For every Jessica Simpson, there’s a Martha Stewart, whose association led to a contentious lawsuit with J.C. Penney. In men’s wear, the store’s relationship with polarizing presidential candidate Donald Trump led to a highly publicized divorce between Trump and former golf buddy — and Macy’s chief executive officer — Terry J. Lundgren.
Ryan Seacrest, Macy’s latest darling, doesn’t seem to have any political aspirations. But the radio and television personality and producer has lofty goals for his branding empire, starting with the expansion of his apparel line, Ryan Seacrest Distinction, which has doubled in sales since its launch at the store a year ago.
For this fall, RSD is expanding beyond suits and furnishings into sweaters, outerwear, scarves, gloves and travel bags. And Seacrest doesn’t plan to stop there.
“I see the line in the top five at Macy’s, hopefully. We are inching in on it. It will be a lifestyle brand that will have aspects of casual, formal, athletic, workout, everything, but we are trying to manage our own expectations because we are pretty ambitious,” said Seacrest, seated in his office at Ryan Seacrest Productions in Los Angeles.

Jada Pinkett Smith Talks Growing Up In Baltimore

Long before Jada Pinkett Smith gained stardom, met Will and started a family, she was a young girl who roamed the streets of Baltimore, Maryland and battled the harsh reality that came with it.

In a recent interview with “American Way,” the “Magic Mike XXL” actress detailed her upbringing in the city and how the city’s crime rates impacted her childhood. 

“When I think back to who I was, living in Baltimore and what my ideas of survival were, and the kind of activities I was involved in at 13 years old. I was going to jail or I was gonna see a grave. Those were my two choices, because you get caught up in a mentality.” 

She also recalled the moment she was held at gunpoint by two men in one of the city’s largest public-housing project. It happened just before she got accepted into the North Carolina School of Arts. She said her mother eventually found out about the horrifying moment and promptly packed up her belongings and made her move. “She probably saved my life,” she told the magazine. 

Shortly after her transition to North Carolina, Pinkett Smith moved yet again — this time to Hollywood to pursue her acting dreams. But the fame she acquired over the years also came with much criticism. Despite the scrutiny, Pinkett Smith said she’s more concered about other issues.

“There are mothers out there losing their sons, their husbands, their daughters. I’m blessed. So scrutinize me,” she said. “I’ll take that any day over what the majority of my people are dealing with on a daily basis. I dare not complain. Hollywood scrutiny has nothing on what I’ve survived just to be here.’”

Growing Up in Central Australia

Growing Up in Central Australia


This excellent volume presents.a rich and timely collection of essays on contemporary Aboriginal childhood and youth, each chapter being grounded on extensive ethnographic experiences and studies. It is an original contribution to a growing field, namely the anthropology of childhood and youth. and offers ‘food for thought’ and a range of perspectives which allow the reader to better appreciate Aboriginal lives, challenges and points of view.” * Sylvie Poirier, Universite Laval, Quebec Surprisingly little research has been carried out about how Australian Aboriginal children and teenagers experience life, shape their social world and imagine the future. This volume presents recent and original studies of life experiences outside the institutional settings of childcare and education, of those growing up in contemporary Central Australia or with strong links to the region. Focusing on the remote communities – roughly 1,200 across the continent – the volume includes case studies of language and family life in small country towns and urban contexts. These studies expertly show that forms of consciousness have changed enormously over the last hundred years for Indigenous societies more so than for the rest of Australia, yet equally notable are the continuities across generations.

Take Down the Flag: Peter Mulvey’s Growing Song of Tribute a Call to Action

We know these names: Clementa Pinckney, Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Cynthia Hurd, Susie Jackson, Ethel Lee Lance, DePayne Middleton-Doctor, Tywanza Sanders, Daniel L. Simmons Sr., Myra Thompson. A week ago, they were alive.

A week ago, during the hour of the night in which they were studying the practice of peace and love, a young white man fueled with racist ideology and its historical narrative of hatred entered their church and shot them dead. This man carried more than a gun — he carried in his mind a controversial symbol of the South: the Confederate flag.

This past week, flags have been lowered to half-staff. But not all of them. “Every flag over Charleston is at half-staff today — except one.” This is the first line of a new song, “Take Down Your Flag,” by singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey. On tour with Ani DiFranco last week, he saw the news of the Emanuel A.M.E. Church massacre and decided to write a song. He wrote it Friday night in the basement dressing room of the Calvin Theatre in Northampton, Massachusetts, right before his set. Then he performed it. This isn’t just any song. It’s one with a mission.

In a Facebook post, Peter writes, “In Charleston, the United States Flag and the South Carolina state flag are at half-mast for nine days, for the nine victims. But the Confederate battle flag is flying at the top of its pole. News outlets are reporting that lowering it can only be done by a vote of the state legislature. I submit that lowering it can be done by two hands and human decency.”

The song ends:

It will take all of the love in all of our hearts,
but it will also take something more.

Take down your flag to half-staff.
Take down your flag to half-staff.
Take down your flag to half-staff
And then take it down for good.

The Confederate flag has been flying high, a finger poking into a centuries-old open wound. Peter’s song demands that the flag at least be lowered to half-staff this Wednesday, when the body of Reverend Clementa Pinckney will lie in state at the South Carolina Capitol. “The thing that I’d most like to see,” he says, “is the Confederate flag at half-staff while Pinckney is lying in state underneath it. That would take just a small bit of the edge of the pain so many (including myself) are feeling.” The song also gives tribute to and remembrance of the nine people lost in this horrendous attack.

Peter uploaded the original version of “Take Down Your Flag” to YouTube on Saturday. It includes a verse remembering Susie Jackson. Someone asked if he’d write verses for all nine who were killed; by that time, two musicians had already covered the song, and Peter asked if they’d re-write their own verses in remembrance. This started a domino effect of musicians covering, re-writing, recording, and uploading their own additions.

Ani DiFranco sings a verse for Tywanza Sanders, Anaïs Mitchell gives tribute to DePayne Middleton-Doctor, and Erin McKeown sings about Sharonda Coleman-Singleton. Pamela Means‘ lyrics include: “Clementa Pinckney worked tirelessly for justice, peace, and love.” Vance Gilbert, speaking to the symbolism and historical residue of the Confederate flag, wrote a verse about alleged gunman Dylann Roof. Peter Mulvey most recently added a lyric for Reverend Pinckney: “Clementa Pinckney will lie in state on Wednesday afternoon. Please do not fly that flag over his body.”

In a matter of days, “Take Down Your Flag” has become a living song. Peter has just uploaded a video containing the chords and framework in hopes that more people will continue to grow this song and commemorate those we’ve lost.

Musicians, please think about recording this song with a new verse and sharing it with the world. It’s become a chain song of love, remembrance, and honor, and, most importantly, it’s a call to action. In a time like this, the world needs songs like this.

Century of the Child: Growing by Design 1900-2000

Century of the Child: Growing by Design 1900-2000


In 1900, Swedish design reformer and social theorist Ellen Key published “The Century of the Child,” presaging the coming century as a period of intensified focus and progressive thinking around the rights, development and well-being of children. Taking inspiration from Key-and looking back through the twentieth century-this volume, published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, examines individual and collective visions for the material world of children, from utopian dreams for the “citizens of the future” to the dark realities of political conflict and exploitation. Surveying more than 100 years of toys, clothing, playgrounds, schools, children’s hospitals, nurseries, furniture, posters, animation and books, this richly illustrated catalogue illuminates how progressive design has enhanced the physical, intellectual, and emotional development of children and, conversely, how models of children’s play have informed experimental aesthetics and imaginative design thinking-engendering, in the process, reappraisals of some of the iconic names in twentieth-century design and enriching the unfolding narrative of modern design with other, less familiar figures. Divided into seven sections-“New Century, New Child, New Art”; “Avant-Garde Playtime”; “Light, Air, Health”; “Children and the Body Politic”; “Regeneration”; “Power Play”; and “Designing Better Worlds”-“The Century of the Child” focuses on individuals and projects that represent innovative and comprehensive contributions to design for children.

An American Caddie in St. Andrews: Growing Up, Girls, and Looping on the Old Course


In the middle of Oliver Horovitz’s high school graduation ceremony, his cell phone rang: It was Harvard. He’d been accepted, but he couldn’t start for another year.A caddie since he was twelve and a golfer sporting a 1.8 handicap, Ollie decides to spend his gap year in St. Andrews, Scotland-a town with the U.K.’s highest number of pubs per capita, and home to the Old Course, golf’s most famous eighteen holes-where he enrolls in the St. Andrews Links Trust caddie trainee program. Initially, the notoriously brusque veteran caddies treat Ollie like a bug. But after a year of waking up at 4:30 A.M. every morning and looping two rounds a day, Ollie earns their grudging respect-only to have to pack up and leave for Harvard.There, Ollie’s new classmates are the sons of Albania’s UN ambassador, the owner of Heineken, and the CEO of Goldman Sachs. Surrounded by sixth generation legacies, he feels like a fish out of water all over again and can’t wait to get back to St. Andrews. Even after graduation, when his college friends rush to Wall Street, Horovitz continues to return each summer to caddie on the Old Course.A hilarious, irresistible, behind-the-scenes peek at the world’s most celebrated golf course-and its equally famous caddie shack-An American Caddie in St. Andrews is certain to not only entertain golfers and fans of St. Andrews but also anyone who dares to remember stumbling into adulthood and finding one’s place in the world.
