Gucci Unveils Gift Giving Campaign for Holiday Season

HAPPY NEW GUCCI: Gucci is embracing the holiday season by unveiling its latest Gift Giving product selection and campaign, which will be extensively supported by digital activities.
Spanning many categories – ranging from T-shirts and footwear to handbags, jewelry, children’s wear and even porcelain items – the product selection is at the core of a new art book released by the house in collaboration with Spanish artist Ignasi Monreal.
Monreal designed a series of digitally-created artworks incorporating Gucci products and developing a narrative inspired by the story of the fall of Icarus.
“Icarus fascinates me because of his story, which could be read a bit like a mantra,” said Monreal.
“If you fly too close to the sun, you’re going to get burned. If you fly too low, you’re going to drown in the sea. It feels quite bluntly obvious, but I find it quite timeless, and reassuring. You have to find the middle point to land on the other side,” he continued, pointing at the “tricky human condition.” The artist also defined the mythological character as “very romantic and of course symbolic of everything young and pretty. Very East London.”
Illustrations in the book include belt-bags encircling a classical statue, small leather goods set in a contemporary, Renaissance-inspired

Alberta Ferretti Teams With Luisa Via Roma on Holiday Sweater

MILAN — Say it with a sweater.
In keeping with the success of her Rainbow Week knits — the range of sweaters with the days of the week which made their debut on the brand’s pre-fall catwalk in January — Alberta Ferretti has developed a special style for the holiday season.
A red cashmere crewneck sweater showing the wording “Merry Christmas” in ivory-white will be sold in exclusive at luxury online fashion shopping destination luisaviaroma.com starting from Nov. 17 at noon.
The sweater, which will be available for women, men and children, will retail at 295 euros for the children’s version and at 440 euros for the adult option.
In the last few months, the Alberta Ferretti brand developed special editions of the Rainbow Week sweater, including a style celebrating fashion influencer Chiara Ferragni’s 30th birthday anniversary last May and the one created for Milanese retailer La Rinascente introduced last September during Milan Fashion Week.

Celebrating the holiday season, being able to take pieces and mix and match and just always complimenting who you are through what you’re wearing, and having conversation in a really subtle and chic manner with beautiful, classic pieces that have also a point of view and a little bit of attitude; having a bit of sassiness and sexiness in a really confident and natural way.

Midcentury Christmas: Holiday Fads, Fancies, and Fun from 1945 to 1970

Midcentury Christmas: Holiday Fads, Fancies, and Fun from 1945 to 1970


A celebration of Christmas in the 1950s and ’60s Midcentury America was a wonderland of department stores, suburban cul-de-sacs, and Tupperware parties. Every kid on the block had to have the latest cool toy, be it an Easy Bake Oven for pretend baking, a rocket ship for pretend space travel, or a Slinky, just because. At Christmastime, postwar America’s dreams and desires were on full display, from shopping mall Santas to shiny aluminum Christmas trees, from the Grinch to Charlie Brown’s beloved spindly Christmas tree. Now design maven Sarah Archer tells the story of how Christmastime in America rocketed from the Victorian period into Space Age, thanks to the new technologies and unprecedented prosperity that shaped the era. The book will feature iconic favorites of that time, including: A visual feast of Christmastime eats and recipes, from magazines and food and appliance makers Christmas cards from artists and designers of the era, featuring Henry Dreyfuss, Charles & Ray Eames, and Alexander Girard Vintage how-to templates and instructions for holiday decor from Good Housekeeping and the 1960’s craft craze Advice from Popular Mechanics on how to glamorize your holiday dining table Decorating advice for your new Aluminum Christmas Tree from ALCOA (the Aluminum Company of America) The first American-made glass ornaments from Corning Glassworks Midcentury Mistletoe is sure to be on everyone’s most-wanted lists.

Destination XL Lowers Guidance After Soft Holiday Sales

The holidays were not kind to Destination XL Group, Inc..
The Massachusetts-based big & tall men’s apparel retailer, said total sales for the nine-week holiday sales period ending Dec. 31, 2016 decreased to $ 97.9 million, compared with $ 98.2 million for the same period of the prior year. Additionally, comparable-store sales for the period fell 1.4 percent.
As a result, the retailer has updated guidance to the low-end of its previously announced full-year range.
“The retail apparel environment was challenging over the holiday selling season, but we were pleased with our store results on the East and West coasts,” said David Levin, president and chief executive officer.  “We believe our strategic decision to eliminate a fall television advertising campaign, while increasing our digital advertising spend, impacted top-line performance across the country, but resulted in a better return on investment in the current environment.”
Levin said that during the November/December period, the company saw “a noticeable migration with our ‘gift-giver’ this season to online shopping.” As a result, he said the company’s direct business performed well, but it was “not enough to offset the decline in store sales. We are managing our expenses very well, which we expect will allow us to meet the low-end of our

It’s a Very Kardashian Khristmas! Kim Joins Family for Kris Jenner’s Annual Holiday Party

This is how the Kardashian-Jenners do Christmas.

Kim Kardashian West joined the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan for Kris Jenner‘s annual holiday bash on Saturday — and what a party it was!

Although the 36-year-old mom of two didn’t post any shots from the party on her own social media, she appeared to be the star of many of her sister’s Snapchats, particularly Khloé Kardashian, who just couldn’t help but gush about her older sister.

“Look who it is in the house. Mrs. West in the building,” Khloé said in a Snap video of herself and Kardashian West cuddling close. It is unclear whether Kanye West attended.

She soon devoted an entire Snap video to Kardashian West’s ensemble — a shining gold, form-fitting, cleavage-baring dress featuring a curious accessory — a lip ring.

“How to die? How dope is my f—— sister? Look at this dress and look at the jewelry. You are a bad a– bitch, Kim!” Khloé declared.

Kardashian West then took over Khloé’s Snapchat to record a clip of Khloé, who wore a shining, black and gold min-dress, holding her daughter North West.

“Look at Northie in her Alexander Wang custom little dress,” Kardashian West said, showcasing North’s black, bejeweled gown. “She loves it.”

As one would expect from a Kris Jenner party, the bash was star-studded with John Legend, Babyface and David Foster attending to perform some tunes — “Show off, Babyface!” Khloé yelled as he sang.

Kourtney Kardashian‘s footage of the soirée was perhaps the liveliest of all. She Snapped several clips showing herself and her sisters dancing, playing and singing at the party.

In one Snap, Khloé, Kourtney and Kendall Jenner are shown singing along to Beyoncé’s “Love on Top.” An in another, Khloé held Kourtney, who wore a white fur to the bash, by the waist and spun her around.

Kylie Jenner attended the bash in a sparkling black bodysuit, and she brought a group of her friends in tow. She and her BFF Jordyn Woods gave sexy poses throughout the night as Jenner Snapped photos and videos of the two.

When she wasn’t taking selfies with Woods and the rest of her crew, Kylie Snapped videos of herself cuddling up to her rapper boyfriend Tyga. The two even shared a few kisses in the footage. At one point, Kylie showed off a diamond necklace that Tyga had apparently given her as a gift. She later said she matched with her mom Kris, who was wearing a similar necklace. (It was unclear if Tyga also gave a similar necklace to Kris.)

Snubbed! Blac Chyna Not Invited to Kardashians’ Holiday Party — They ‘Can’t Stand’ the Drama

Caitlyn Jenner along with Scott Disick and Kourtney’s children were also in attendance.

Notably absent from the family gathering were Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna. A source previously told PEOPLE that Kris did not include Chyna on the guest list for the party amid Rob and Chyna’s relationship drama.

“Rob’s family is over Chyna,” the source said. “She is not invited to Kris’ holiday party.”

Twitter Users Roast FBI Over Its MS Paint-Style Holiday Tweet

The FBI’s “Happy Holidays” tweet brought plenty of seasonal cheer over the weekend, but maybe not in the way the agency intended.

Twitter users couldn’t resist poking fun at the law enforcement agency after it posted this MS-Paint-style snowman graphic Saturday alongside its festive message:

Dozens of tweeters piled in to claim that the bureau had committed a “graphic design crime.” One person even called for agents to “arrest themselves for this card.”

Some critics mockingly posted their own equally amateur-looking greetings pictures. Others used the post as an opportunity to attack the FBI over allegations that it had played a role in President-elect Donald Trump’s election win, which have resulted in a lawsuit against the agency.

Here are some of the most popular responses we’ve seen so far:

Katy Perry And Orlando Bloom Dress Up To Spread Holiday Cheer At Children’s Hospital

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom got in the Christmas spirit on Tuesday to spread some holiday cheer to kids at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. 

The couple dressed up as Santa and Mrs. Claus for their visit, and the pictures, which the hospital shared on Facebook and Instagram, are just adorable. 

By the looks of it, Perry and Bloom led the group in singing some Christmas carols, and the pop star even sang her hit “Firework.” Because as we all know, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. 

“Never naughty, always nice. The kids at CHLA received a much-deserved visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus … who happen to look a lot like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom!” reads one of the photo captions. 

Both Perry and Bloom often take time out of their schedules for philanthropic endeavors, and have both been recognized for their work. Just last month, the “Teenage Dream” singer received the Audrey Hepburn humanitarian award for her work as UNICEF’s goodwill ambassador, an honor which Bloom received last year.

Special Tip Update!

How to Ditch your To Do List this Holiday Season and Gift yourself Instant Joy.

It’s December. Most likely you have a To Do List that resembles a Horror Movie.

You’re not alone.

I have deeply meaningful work. Connecting women with their purpose, creating art with clients. You might think I’ve got my act together, but my December To Do List reads like a message from hell. It’s not pretty.

Fortunately I know a swift way out of the darkness. It requires five minutes of your time, a sheet of paper and some pencils.

December is that Special Month that encapsulates family, happiness, holiday time, entrepreneurial and job actions and the hope that the year to come will be a breeze.

Dear Santa, give me more fun and less stress.

So, we create a list that contains everything we didn’t manage to finish in 2016. We desperately want to start afresh in the next year. And what better way to do that than work yourself silly?

We smartly divide The List into Work, Family and the dreaded: Miscellaneous.

That is just smart talk for a bottomless sink containing the Facebook ads you have to create without falling to pieces or calling your friend — who you should have called in May — but you remember this while brushing your teeth in the evening. Causing a chain reaction starting with: “Oh my God! I’ve got so much to do. I shouldn’t be allowed to go to bed” to “Why oh why, can’t I be more organized!” ending in “My life will never change, I’m a mess and I deserve to feel like shit.”

Result: a lot of frantic midnight typing on your smart phone until 3 in the morning.

All the while you think you can hear the stacks of unpaid bills and the unfinished tax papers moaning and bitching about you in your closet. „Argh, isn’t she horrible. We’re overdue. Pay us already. I’m just soooo ashamed.

You have to visit your sick father, spend a picture perfect day with your kids, buy tickets for the exhibition you-cannot-miss!, look visibly successful. Cook a super healthy meal and host a night for your fellow Kick-Ass Entrepreneurs.

And that Bloody List refuses to shrink!

Instead, it grows…. and grows and grows. Our To do List is ridden with guilt, shame and fear. The List ensures we will never feel good enough.

Seriously?

It’s almost 2017! Are we still giving permission to be frowned upon and belittled by a stupid To Do List?

The reason we made the list in the first place is the promise that — once the list is empty –, happiness and joy awaits.

But that bloody list is just exactly the same as the umpteenth diet that promises happiness as soon as you’ve lost the dreaded 15 pounds.

Until then… Suffer first baby! Gratification is only for the go-getters.

The List promises you that happiness is conditional. That contentment is something you need to deserve. The List says: “You are only deserving of joy when you cleared me out, solved the puzzles, did the phone calls, paid the bills and finished your website. Until than I will punish you with shame and fear.

Enough already. Be a rebel. Don’t wait for fulfillment until the list is done

Get it now.

This is the simple part. You are the Boss of The List. Never the other way around. Proof it by creating your art.

I know! How crazy simple can it be!? Here’s proof. And if you don’t belief me science is with me on this one.

2016-12-13-1481640018-535884-IMG_6484.JPG

Last Sunday I picked up my List.

My Number One Task: cleaning the bedroom.

Which is short for: clear the Himalayan sized mountain of dresses, socks and skirts, clean the damn place, tidy the closets. It was enough work to keep me occupied for the entire Sunday.

I could feel the resistance. The tiredness. Fear — I will not finish it anyway — racing through my body. Tight muscles. Set jaw. I was about to spend my precious free hours cleaning.

Finish the List!

But than I didn’t. I longed for instant happiness, for air, for love, color. I needed joy.

I graved lightness. Not in 2017. I wanted to Be Happy Now.

I picked up my pencils and paper. And I drew. I could here deep sighs. I could feel my body relaxing. As if the huge dragon on my shoulders decided to bother someone else. I felt instantly light and loved. I felt seen. I was touched. I felt more alive than the entire week before.

2016-12-13-1481639893-2648217-IMG_6497.JPG

Yes, I can hear you say: „So that’s your solution!? That’s easy for you to say. I can’t draw! I suck at art. I don’t even own a pencil. I never touched a sketchbook since Ms Smith in Third Grade told me a Cat is not supposed to have 1 ear and two tails.

I’ll let you in on a secret. It’s not about the result. It’s about the process. The magic happens when you draw a line or mix blue with red. Lightness starts when you color a small circle bright yellow.

I can also hear you mumble: “I don’t have the time for this.”

But here’s the thing. You DO have time. Five minutes of your time. Time you otherwise would use to watch another Netflix series. Or checking how many likes your Facebook post has.

There is no more to it than that. Art heals stress. It provides — those willing to listen — with profoundly meaningful answers. Creating art is more than a A Silly Hobby. It’s a Game Changer. A life Saver. It bring you instant joy.

THIS IS A SIMPLE JOY ENERGIZER- FOLLOW MY LEAD

  1. Sit down. Pick up a pencil and a sheet of paper.
  2. Breathe…
  3. Feel the tension in your body. Listen to the voices in your mind.
  4. Ask. Silently or out loud: “What do I need right now?
  5. Don’t get into thinking mode. The first thing that springs to mind is what you need.
  6. Now listen. Don’t interfere. “Pick up the blue pencil. Draw a line. Breathe.
  7. Keep drawing for at least 5 minutes. If you find this difficult. Listen to music and follow the notes.

Don’t wait for happiness. Pick up a pencil. Do it now!

Draw a cat with one ear and two tails. Smile. Enjoy the calm space your create. Breathe…

And if you can’t find an empty sheet of paper there’s always a To Do List in need of some color and joy.

Your Guilt-Free Guide To Last-Minute Holiday Shopping That Won’t Kill The Rainforest

By Philip Rothrock
This story is cross-posted on Ecosystem Marketplace

Have you seen Gucci’s retro “Jackie” bags, patterned after one of Jackie Kennedy’s favorites?

They’re not only lovely, but they’re made of “deforestation-free” leather.

That’s a pretty big deal, because cattle ranchers are chopping forests by the football field to produce beef and leather, which is one reason agriculture generates almost 30% of all greenhouse-gas emissions worldwide.

In the past decade, scores of companies have committed to delivering “deforestation-free” leather, and some are already making good on their promises, while others seem to be making an honest effort to do so.

But there’s a new front opening, as Canadian boutique owner Cathy Reid recently found after receiving a holiday shipment of nightgowns.

“Some of the nighties are classic cotton flannel,” she wrote on her blog. “Others are silky fabrics, soft and cozy, perfect for the cooler nights in November.”

But then a customer read the label, and found they contained something called “rayon“, which Reid soon learned is a “cellulosic fiber” made of trees.

Such fibers are more common than you’d think, and they’re supposed to be more environmentally-friendly than cotton, that ravenous vampire plant that sucks the life out of soil.

That eco-friendliness, however, is questionable – and you, as a conscientious consumer, have the power to find the answers.
2016-12-18-1482072520-1389589-TimberPulp.PNG

Seven companies have committed to improve their sourcing of wood fibers for fabrics, but none have reported progress. Here is how that’s reflected in one Supply Change profile.

The “Big Four” Deforestation Commodities

Logging for timber and pulp – which includes cellulosic fibers – is the third-leading driver of deforestation around the world, and cattle ranching – which generates leather – is number one. These, together with soy and palm, comprise the “big four” forest risk commodities responsible for most of the world’s tropical deforestation – and until recently, it was nearly impossible to know if your holiday shopping was contributing to the problem.

That started to change when manufacturers like New Balance and Louis Vuitton, as well as retailers like Inditex/Zara and C&A, started promising to chop deforestation from key commodity supply chains. Then NGOs like CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) started rating companies based on their commitments. Last year, the Forest Trend’s Supply Change project started tracking the progress that companies report toward achieving those commitments – providing in the process a fascinating glimpse into the complex, interlocking global supply chains that stretch around the world, involving cattlemen and loggers, as well as subsistence farmers and indigenous people who harvest the commodities we buy as leather, linen, and lipstick.

Keeping Tabs

Supply Change monitors hundreds of companies from around the world and across the industrial spectrum, but just 26 of these are shoe and apparel companies, and only 22 of these have promised to reduce their impact on the world’s rainforests.

That’s roughly 85% of the companies profiled by Supply Change in this sector, and almost all of those have made more than one promise – meaning that the 22 companies have generated more than 40 pledges.

Good – right?

Kind of.

Fourteen of those pledges apply to packaging – which many companies (and everyone who recycles) has committed to doing right – while just seven of them apply to clothing made with wood fiber fabrics.

By contrast, 16 apply to leather.

Those differences are no coincidence: environmentalists have been campaigning for recycled packaging since the 1960s, and many are just now waking up to cellulosic fibers. Things can, however, move fast – as we learned with leather.

2016-12-18-1482072780-4508714-DCShop.jpg

Responding to the Critics

In 2009, Greenpeace built a campaign around evidence connecting deforestation in the Amazon with cattle products sold to many large public-facing brands. This set off a ripple effect among buyers and suppliers alike, and New Balance immediately committed to stop buying shoe-leather from suppliers in the Amazon biome. ASOS, Coach and Eram Group followed a few years later.

On the cellulosic fiber front, an NGO called Canopy launched the Fashion Loved by Forests campaign, and scores of retailers and manufactures vowed to steer clear of wood products from ancient and endangered forests.

Those consumer-facing companies, however, are at the mercy of suppliers, and Canopy says that the ten largest suppliers, responsible for about 75% of global supply, are just beginning to set and implement their own sustainability commitments. Fortunately, the two largest, Aditya Birla and Lenzing, are close to wrapping up their first desktop audits of global operations. They make up around 35% of global supply and received highest scores in Canopy’s first update on viscose producers and forests.

Frustratingly, companies are only reporting progress on about half of commitments for companies in every sector tracked by Supply Change, and clothing retailer Inditex/Zara is one of those that hasn’t reported any measurable progress on its clothing commitment so far – perhaps because it’s waiting for suppliers (like Lenzing) to provide traceability.

The Design Cycle

When clothing companies decide to purge deforestation from their supply chains, they face the same challenge that we, as individuals do: namely, where to begin? After all, very few apparel companies produce their own raw materials. Instead, they’re consumers themselves, and they tend to go through predictable stages of improvement.

First, they promise something along the lines of making sure that all of their leather is “deforestation-free” by 2020.

Then they scramble to find out where in the world their leather comes from – which involves mapping transactions between ranchers, slaughter houses, packing companies and finally traders.

At that point, they usually examine three strategies: move forward by avoiding purchases from high-deforestation areas, help iffy suppliers improve their practices, and/or look for alternate materials.

Each of these approaches break down further – some companies aim to restructure their entire supply chains, one supplier at a time, while others turn to existing certification programs. Stella McCartney brand products even use vegan leather.

A disturbing number, however simply go silent – and, indeed, of the 24 wood-related commitments tracked by Supply Change, only 11 have any reported progress. On the leather front, progress reports are available on 12 of 16 commitments.

Once they implement a strategy, they establish procedures for monitoring progress; and – if they’re serious – they look for independent third parties who can do it for them.

Tracing the Lace

Many companies, erring on the side of caution, only make commitments they’re confident they can achieve – like making sure commodities are traceable to the region, mill or tannery they came from, and ideally to the ranch or plantation. Even that, however, can be a monumental task.

Most of the apparel companies Supply Change tracks do intend to trace their leather supply, and a few, like

New Balance and Coach,   require all their suppliers to submit signed assurances that their cattle doesn’t come from the Amazon. Coach says its suppliers have done so.

Similarly, H&M requires signed partner agreements to ensure compliance with its Business Partner requirements for both its wood and leather commitments, and its going one step further for its commitment on cellulosic fiber by working with suppliers to make their own CanopyStyle Pledges.

That raises another question: can the suppliers be trusted?

Meeting the Dress Code

Scores of companies are embedding environmental and social issues into their procurement guidelines, and some – like Adidas – are hiring third parties to audit all direct suppliers and making it clear that non-compliance could terminate the contract. A few, like Puma (owned by retail giant Kering) are even providing funds to help suppliers meet their environmental standards.

Puma also publicly lists its top-tier suppliers, while multi-stakeholder initiatives like SEDEX, CERES, CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), and IDH Sustainable Trade Initiative aim to help companies find meaningful ways of engaging their suppliers on a range of environmental issues and increasingly land use management.

Other initiatives go even further – and do so in ways that promote real change on the ground.

It’s Fashionable to be Certified

When companies abandon high-risk areas, they often fix their own problem but drive poverty and desperation in the places left behind, according to Rosa Maria Vidal of the Governors’ Climate and Forests Fund.

Certification programs, on the other hand, promote sustainable resource management by ensuring companies maintain minimum environmental and social industry standards.

Roughly 20% of all wood products are certified under either the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or Program for the Enforcement of Forest Certification, but certification efforts only began to seriously consider woof fabrics

three years ago. As we saw earlier, only seven companies have committed to sustainably source wood fibers embedded in their clothes, and none of them have reported progress.

In leather, the certification of choice is the Leather Working Group (LWG), which audits companies to make sure their leather isn’t associated with deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon biome – making them, in essence, an audited version of the independent commitments made by New Balance, Coach, Eram Group and ASOS. Roughly half of all leather commitments are tied to the LWG, which has already audited more than 14% of leather production.

All of the companies building pledges on LWG certification are reporting progress, ranging from 15% for H&M to around 100% for Nike and Timberland.

These consumer-facing companies rely on LWG-certified tanneries like Couro do Norte, which in turn use lists of bad actors published daily by government agencies and non-profits to keep suppliers honest.

Brazil’s three largest meatpackers – JBS, Marfrig, and Minerva – also supply the leather sector, and they use the same monitoring systems while also publishing third-party audits of their procurement.

All of these efforts are helping to push these hidden supply chains out into the open, across all commodities, so that – hopefully – products like Gucci’s bag will become the norm rather than the exception that proves the rule.

What Can I Do?

Until that day arrives, you can follow the example set by Cathy Reid’s inquisitive customer and ask your own retailers where their clothes come from. Most probably won’t be able to answer, but those questions do filter up. Here’s a list to get you started:

  • Do any of your clothes contain cellulosic fiber or leather? Are there non-leather and cellulosic fiber alternatives?
  • Where does the leather for your purses, jackets, shoes, wallets, come from?
  • How about the forest fibers? Beware, many leather items say made in Italy or China, but this refers to where the products are manufactured, the cows may still be raised in the Amazon or other threatened landscapes.
  • Does your company have a zero deforestation policy(ies) that cover [cattle/leather] and [wood/clothing fibers]?
  • Has your company begun implementing its policy?

Take care this holiday season, and remember to read the fine print, because not all gifts may be as caring and thoughtful as you might think when their sources are tainted by deforestation and exploitation.

Tis the season for snowflakes and sugarplums, and if you enjoy holiday traditions, there isn’t anything more traditional than attending a performance of the holiday classic The Nutcracker. This classic ballet features music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky with a libretto adapted from E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, by way of Alexander Dumas’ adapted story The Nutcracker. The première was in 1892 at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, with choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. Over the years it has been restaged by an array of famous choreographers, and is even updated from time to time (see below), but it always warms our hearts and allows us to experience the holidays through the eyes of a child once again.

Be sure to catch one of the numerous productions on view here in NYC this season — you’ll be glad you did.

Mark Morris Dance Group’s The Hard Nut

For something completely different — Mark Morris Dance Group’s beloved retro-modern reimagining of The Nutcracker comes back to BAM for the holidays in the form of The Hard Nut. A cascade of wit and wintry beauty, this lavish, gender-bent love letter to the classic transplants E.T.A. Hoffmann’s original story from the straight-laced 1890s to the swinging 70s, with raucous parties, dancing G.I. Joes, whimsical costumes, and a Waltz of the Snowflakes like no other. Based on the comic book art of Charles Burns and featuring Tchaikovsky’s complete original score, performed live by the 53-piece MMDG Music Ensemble, Morris’ lyrical, modern retelling playfully preserves the warm spirit of an essential holiday tradition.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld Unveils Le Marché Bleu Holiday Pop-up

The “It” girl, creative director of Didier and founder of Romy and the Bunnies will add a distinctively French flair to Le Marché Bleu, a new holiday market slated to open to the public on Dec. 10 and 11. The two-day pop-up shop, produced by Grey Goose, will be located in SoHo at 64 Wooster Street.
Restoin Roitfeld curated the shop’s inventory, which will feature an assortment of French delicacies, several of which cannot be found in the U.S. — think hot chocolate from Angelina cafe in Paris; Pierre Hermé macarons, an Alain Ducasse advent calendar, Astier de Villatte cuff links and a selection of Scarlett Johansson’s “Yummy Pop” from the new popcorn shop the actress opened in Paris’ Marais district. “I still have such deep ties to France and love incorporating it in my work,” Restoin Roitfeld said of the partnership.
Other, more fashion-centric items include Cire Trudon candles, an Olympia Le-Tan clutch, Armor Lux slippers, Smythson notebooks, and a Yves Delorme cashmere blanket in addition to Grey Goose spirits and drinkware.

Emma Stone and the SNL Ladies Nail a Song About Awkwardness of Casual Holiday Gift Giving

‘Tis the season — for digging through your closet for present to regift.

The ladies of Saturday Night Live along with host Emma Stone served up a completely relatable tune about the peril of swapping holiday gifts with casual acquaintances and the one item that always fills the void: a candle.

In the style of a ’90s music video, the SNL cast chronicled the journey of a peach-scented candle as it changes hands from one struggling gift giver to another.

But Aidy Bryant also gives a warning not to undermine the value of the present by pairing it with another little goody.

She sings, “When you give a candle that is all that she needs, don’t pair it with the lotion or some little cream. A lot of people think two gifts are better than one, but that just makes each seem smaller and dumb.”

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays (11:30 p.m. ET) on NBC.

An Annual Fashion Industry Holiday Bash is Canceled

THE END OF THE PARTY: Publicist James La Force and husband writer Stephen Henderson have decided to forgo their annual holiday party known for it’s somewhat raucous atmosphere, due to the outcome of the presidential election.
In an interesting approach to this years’ election drama, the couple went ahead and printed their invitation pre-Trump victory with an illustration of Hillary in a Santa suit waving a flag with the caption “Make America Merry Again”.  Alas when she did not win the duo, who wrote “So confident we were of her victory, we designed and printed the attached invitation before Nov. 8th”, were presumably in that “liberal bubble” the likes of Michael Moore have been pontificating about post-election. Invitees who have in the past has included Peter Som and Michael Bastian  received these original invites along with an explanation of their reasons for canceling the holiday fete and their intentions to donate the party budget to Planned Parenthood, Housing Works, an organization close to Henderson’s heart and The Stonewall Foundation. Lest too much disappointment be garnered over an invitation to a fashionable haunt with a fashionable crowd , the pair offered that more parties were on the way, just “not in 2016.”

Don’t Be Fooled By This Romantic Holiday Card Photo

All is not as it seems in the cheesy holiday snap, above.

It may look like a couple is romantically embracing beside a bunch of Christmas presents in the image’s thumbnail.

But see what happens when it’s zoomed out…

Single college student John Olmstead decided to poke fun at the romantic holiday card genre after seeing a similar spoof online, reports BuzzFeed.

I thought it was hilarious, so I wanted to do it, but my arms are too skinny to look like legs,” the 22-year-old from Mattoon, Illinois, told Mashable. “So, I had to improvise and shove my feet into those tiny boots.”

He posted the photograph to Twitter on Wednesday, and it’s since garnered more than 90,000 likes and almost 50,000 retweets.

Many fellow Twitter users admitted that Olmstead’s parody struck a chord:

The Holiday Party: An Introvert’s Survival Guide

2016-11-21-1479752721-5236844-SpiritHuffPo.jpg

Holiday parties are torture for introverts. Who’s with me?!

All that loud music and making awkward chit-chat whilst standing around in uncomfortable shoes. Rudolf, take the wheel!

I used to dread the holiday season simply because every weekend there was another tinsel-laden-torture-fest to attend. No more! I have crafted a fail-proof holiday party survival plan for introverts.

As a life coach, let me say first and foremost, if you don’t want to go to the party, PLEASE, for the love of all that is gingerbread-scented, DON’T GO! You don’t have to feel obligated. You don’t have to feel badly for not going and you REALLY don’t have to make excuses.

Simply repeat after me:
I’m sorry. I won’t be able to make it, but thanks ever so much for the invitation!” End of story.

HOWEVER, if you choose to go, here’s how to make any party a pleasure instead of a pain:

1. Dress in something that makes you feel amazing.
There is nothing that will make you feel more self-conscious than a dress you have to keep yanking up (or down). Keep it simple. Keep it classy.

2. Don’t overindulge in alcohol.
A little bit of alcohol can be a social lubricant but too much forces you out of your shell. This drains your energy while creating a vulnerability hangover, not to mention the possibility of an actual physical hangover to boot.

3. Take frequent timeouts.
The key to happy holiday party-going for an introvert is energy conservation. Take frequent breaks from the buzzy party atmosphere. Find a quiet spot and spend a few minutes grounding yourself. Step out of your uncomfortable shoes, take a couple of slow breaths, and come back into your body. No need to rush. Once you feel like yourself, you can head back out. Don’t forget your shoes! Repeat as often as necessary.

4. Be yourself.
Oh, that old chestnut. But how?! Be a little vulnerable. Risk starting conversations that are actually meaningful or interesting to you. Introverts have trouble with small talk because we value deeper communication; quality not quantity. Try practicing genuine curiosity about the people you meet. Discover the human behind the ugly sweater.

5. Have an exit strategy; use as needed.
When you start to feel tired, over-stimulated, or just out of sorts, it’s time to say goodbye. I give you permission to leave whenever you want…even if it’s still early. Go on, it’s okay. Find the host/hostess thank them for their hospitality and say goodnight.

Now go put on your sassy pants; it’s time to party!

Destination XL to Ditch TV Ads for Holiday

Destination XL Group Inc. won’t be on the airwaves this holiday season and the company is bracing for the impact.
In reporting a narrowed third-quarter loss on Friday morning, David Levin, president and chief executive officer of the Canton, Mass.-based men’s big-and-tall retailer, said: “We continually look to maximize the return we achieve on every dollar we spend, and that scrutiny is heightened in a difficult retail environment such as the one we are experiencing. Because of this disciplined approach, we have decided not to spend advertising dollars on television in the fourth quarter. Our marketing campaign in the fourth quarter will consist of radio, digital and social media, and we will continue to evaluate the use of television in the future.”
As a result, of this “lack of television exposure, coupled with the delayed arrival of cold weather,” Levin said the company now has “a more cautious outlook for sales and EBITDA.”
In the quarter, the company reported that due to the strength of its DXL store concept, its net loss was $ 4.5 million, or 9 cents a diluted share, compared to $ 5.5 million, or 11 cents a share, in the prior-year quarter. The retailer posted an overall comparable-store sales gain of 0.9

Uniqlo Recruits Mona Kim Projects to Create Holiday Windows in New York

In line with its streamlined marketing, Uniqlo has recruited Mona Kim to warm up its three New York stores with colorful heat waves.
Meant to highlight the chill-fighting technical features of Uniqlo’s apparel, there will be swaths of orange and other sunburst shades in the retailer’s three New York stores. In from Paris, Kim, a visual artist and multidisciplinary design consultant, has been holed up in a Williamsburg, Brooklyn, design studio for the past month fine-tuning the installation.
She said Monday, “I just thought it would be interesting to do something extremely simple. What if we were immersed in this transcendental color to cut through all the visual clutter that we’re surrounded by in the holiday season?”
The grading shades of colors are being placed in windows, on floors and staircases, underneath beams, display cases and up shelves. The company’s Fifth Avenue flagship should be ready Wednesday, the SoHo store will be set on Friday and the West 34th Street store should be complete on Saturday. Lumisty, a glass film that creates an optical illusion, is used in select locations.

Olivia Culpo Shows Us How to Pull Off 3 Holiday Beauty Looks

Olivia Culpo is the ultimate beauty girl: “I’m such a product junkie—I love to play with everything, and I’m often the one doing my friends’ makeup before we go out,” she admits. The former Miss USA can also pull off just about any makeup look you can think of, thanks to perfect brows, serious cheekbones, and an enviable pout. So with all that in mind, we asked Culpo and makeup artist Tina Turnbow to dream up three dramatic holiday looks to get you inspired this season. Twinkling shadow, rich velvet lips—these looks aren’t shy or subtle, but that’s the point. “It’s a time for celebrating,” adds Culpo, “so you should have fun with your makeup, too.”

Satanist Really Appreciates The New Starbucks Holiday Cups

This fall, Starbucks has altered their holiday cup design to reflect a more inclusive attitude toward their customers’ religious beliefs, trading the traditional snowflakes and elves for a simpler red.

Though the change was met with criticism by many Christians, devoted Satan-worshipper Arnold Gregory welcomes the move. 

“It’s good to feel included,” said Gregory, donning a ritual mask of his own design.

The 32-year-old says he’s noticed the service at his local Starbucks has also gotten much quicker in recent weeks.

“Not sure what it is,” he said, breathing heavily through the mask’s mouth hole and speaking as a serpent might, ”but they’re great about getting me in and out as quickly as possible.”

    Paris: A Holiday That is Always With You

    2015-05-19-1432074578-4851506-HP_1_IMG_9603_2.jpg

    Every time I visit Paris, I think about the way Hemingway referred to the City of Light as a “Moveable Feast.” But I have to admit that I like the Russian translation of the title even more, “A Holiday That is Always with You.” When a few weeks ago I returned from a trip to Paris, a surprise package was waiting at my door with the book, Why LA? Porquoi Paris? An Artistic Pairing of Two Iconic Cities, by Diane Ratican. And, if that was not enough of a coincidence, the next day, I went to Paramount Studios to attend the third annual Paris Photo LA, the prestigious international photo fair with its home base at the Grand Palais in Paris.

    2015-05-19-1432074632-8129173-HP_2_fountainbleu.jpg

    So, let me share with you my recent adventures in and around the City of Light, where I was a guest of the Paris Region Tourist Board at the Grand hotel du Palais Royal, across from the Museé de Louvre, an ideal place to stay for any art aficionado. My hosts also arranged my first ever trip to Chateau de Fontainebleau, the imperial residence which Napoleon considered to be “the real home of kings, a house of centuries.” I was especially intrigued to see there the relatively modest — by size — private apartment of Napoleon himself. With its sprawling parks and gardens, the Chateau was the splendid home to French royalty from the 12th century until the abdication of Napoleon III in 1870. There is so much to see and to experience in Fontainebleau; one should plan to spend at least a whole day there.

    2015-05-19-1432075266-1797048-HP_4_VAUX.jpg

    The same day, we drove to resplendent Chateau de Vaux le Vicomte, which is only one hour away from Paris. In 1641, it was purchased by Nicolas Fouquet, who, several years later, became the Minister of Finance for Louis XIV. Fouquet had grandiose plans for his estate. At one time, it was said that Fouquet employed 18,000 workers to maintain his gardens and rebuild his castle. Among them were the famous architect Le Vau, the landscape designer le Notre, and artist Le Brun.

    2015-05-19-1432075338-4624421-HP_3_VAUXIMG_5453.jpg

    In a tragic turn of events, after lavish festivities to celebrate the opening of his estate, Fouquet — the richest man in France after the King — was arrested under a false accusation of misappropriation of public funds. Voltaire famously said, “On 17 August [1661], at 6 in the evening, Fouquet was the King of France; at two in the morning, he was nobody.” In 1875, after many years of neglect, the Chateau was sold to Alfred Sommier, and today, it is administered by his descendants and regularly opens to the public.

    2015-05-19-1432075399-716367-HP_5_PHILHARMONIE.jpg

    Back in Paris, I spent a good amount of time getting familiar with two new major cultural projects, Jean Nouvel’s Philharmonie de Paris and Frank Gehry’s Fondation Louis Vuitton. Even four months after its official opening, the Philharmonie building is still 20 percent incomplete. The building is impressive, but not particularly likeable. But, what’s important is that it has become a big success with the public from Day One, mostly due to its splendid acoustics and reasonably priced tickets. On the ground floor, there is an exhibition space, currently devoted to David Bowie; the next exhibition will feature the art of Marc Chagall.

    2015-05-19-1432075454-1265309-HP_6_FLV.jpg

    My visit to Fondation Louis Vuitton, the translucent glass fantasy by Frank Gehry in Boulogne Forest, made me forget the splendor of Fontainebleau and Chateau de Vaux. At the age of 86, Gehry has delivered his most adventurous, most ambitious architectural project. There is a seamless interaction between the outdoor and indoor spaces, which makes one think about the influence of Los Angeles modernist architecture.

    2015-05-19-1432075513-3170910-HP_7_FLVext.jpg

    One climbs up several levels of the building, discovering numerous terraces and patios. And, with every twist and turn, yet another view of Boulogne Forest with Paris in the distance is revealed. And, for the first time in his practice, Gehry chose to reveal the architectural and engineering structure of his building, the structure that made me think about the gorgeous skeleton of a gigantic dinosaur. Even compared to his celebrated Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and his Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Fondation Louis Vuitton shines as Gehry’s absolute best.
