Vera Wang to Introduce Bridal Jewelry With Chow Tai Fook

SHANGHAI — Bridal doyenne Vera Wang is expanding her universe again, linking up this time with Hong Kong-headquartered Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group to produce a fine jewelry collection catering to the modern Chinese bride.
“Vera Wang Love” will debut on Oct. 19 in Chow Tai Fook Shanghai stores before expanding to other key cities including Beijing, Chengdu and Hong Kong. It builds on top of her existing offerings in the space via “Simply Vera Vera Wang” jewelry, as well as deals for homeware, and her core ready-to-wear and gowns business.
The collection will span 18-karat gold and platinum engagement rings, wedding bands and fine fashion jewelry, with a starting price point of about $ 400.
Traditionally speaking, gold and jade usually adorn brides in China, but the two sides said couples in greater numbers are starting to “incorporate diamond jewelry into traditional engagements.”
Wang has found a powerful partner in Chow Tai Fook, one of the world’s largest jewelers with more than 2,600 points of sale across China. The group’s other brands include Chow Tai Fook T Mark, Hearts on Fire, Monologue and SoinLove.
Vera Wang counts three boutiques in mainland China — in Beijing, Shanghai and Chengdu.

Messe Frankfurt France to Introduce Leatherworld Paris

PARIS — Skins are in at Messe Frankfurt France, which is adding a new leather-focused section to its cluster of trade shows, scheduled to present at Le Bourget, Paris, from Sept. 17 to 20.
Dubbed Leatherworld Paris, the show will also include fake fur, accessories and synthetic alternatives to animal leather.
Participants will include Shanghai-based Ecopel, a major supplier of fake fur and imitation leather, as well as prime contractors from Pakistan and a range of leather goods makers and leather specialists from Lebanon and Turkey.
The move echoes that of competitor Première Vision Paris, which recently bulked up its Première Vision Leather salon. PV took over Cuir à Paris in 2014 and renamed it Première Vision Leather in February 2015, when it integrated all shows under the Première Vision Paris umbrella.
Gathering some 1,850 exhibitors, the group of Messe Frankfurt France shows, which already includes Apparel Sourcing, Avantex, Leatherworld, Shawls & Scarves, Texworld and Texworld Denim Paris, will also fall under a new banner “The Fairyland for Fashion.”
The event will include a range of workshops and roundtable discussions with technological, economic and sustainable themes.

It’s Official! Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra Confirm Engagement as They Introduce Their Families

It’s official!

Three weeks after PEOPLE broke the news that Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are engaged, the couple confirmed their relationship status Saturday by each posting the same romantic engagement photo to Instagram.

“Future Mrs. Jonas. My heart. My love,” Jonas, 25, captioned the shot — which showed the couple embracing as she placed her hand (and massive engagement ring) on his chest.

“Taken.. With all my heart and soul.,” Chopra, 36, wrote in the same shot on her page.

The confirmation comes as their families unite for the first time to celebrate the soon-to-be husband and wife’s engagement in Chopra’s home country of India.

Chopra shared a gallery of photos from the bash, including a group picture of she and Jonas, her mother Madhu, her brother Siddharth, and Jonas’ parents Denise and Kevin, Sr. — all smiling together in front of a custom “NP” logo (for Nick and Priyanka, natch). 

Other pictures included Chopra and Jonas posing for another engagement shot, as well as snaps taken while the two participated in a prayer ceremony.

“The only way to do this… with Family and God,” she wrote. “Thank you all for your wishes and blessings 🙏🏼♥🎉

Jonas was spotted arriving at Chhatrapati Shivaji International airport in Mumbai on Thursday evening with his mother and father in tow. Not pictured at the airport were brothers Kevin, Joe and Frankie Jonas.

As they made their exit, the Jonas patriarch had a big Tiffany & Co. bag in his hand. Of course, Tiffany’s is the jewelers that closed down its London store for Nick to buy an engagement ring for Chopra.

A source previously confirmed to PEOPLE that Kevin popped the question in July while celebrating the Quantico actress’ 36th birthday in London. “They are so happy,” the insider said of the pair, who began dating in May.

“His friends and family have never seen him like this, and they’re all really excited for him. He’s definitely very serious about her,” a separate source added.

On Tuesday, Chopra showed off the diamond for the first time in two photos with her friend (and fellow Bollywood actress) Raveena Tandon.

Tandon, 43, shared the snapshots on her social media account, both taken while Chopra hung her left arm around her friend’s shoulders.

The ring appeared to be a customized Tiffany & Co. cushion cut diamond with tapered baguettes.

“Peecee and I getting our pouts in order ! 😂,” Tandon wrote in the caption.

Although Jonas and Chopra only dated for two months prior to their engagement, their friendship dates back longer than that.

At the 2017 Met Gala, the actress decided to bring the pop star along as her date since the pair both wore Ralph Lauren to the fashion event.

“We were both wearing Ralph Lauren! And we decided to go together because it was fun,” Chopra explained on Jimmy Kimmel Live last year when asked why they had decided to walk the red carpet together. “Yeah we were on the same table. We know each other so we were like, ‘Hey you know what, let’s go together.’ And I was like, ‘Okay. Let’s go together!’ It just ended up working out.”

Smith Optics Introduce Smart Ski Goggles Through Rental Program

SMITH SKIS SMART: Snowboarders and skiers bound for Ski amadé resorts can measure their speed and check the latest slope conditions thanks to new smart ski goggles from Smith Optics.
With the help of Evolaris, an app has been developed to help winter enthusiasts navigate the 760 trails at what is Austria’s largest skiing resource.

A Man’s World: Mr Porter Set to Introduce Mr P

LONDON — There’s a new man at Mr Porter known as Mr P, a collection of essentials and trend-led seasonal pieces designed, sourced, manufactured and distributed exclusively by the men’s fashion site.
The collection will launch on Nov. 7 and offer more than 50 pieces, a mix of wardrobe building blocks and five themed capsule collections that are meant to complement — rather than compete with — the site’s 400-plus brands.
In an exclusive interview, Mr Porter’s managing director Toby Bateman said the Mr P product has been engineered to work as an overarching wardrobe.
“Men’s brands tend to either be casual or formal or technical, but the reality is that men don’t necessarily dress head-to-toe in one particular way. We wanted to create a brand that in one aesthetic could bring casual, smart and technical together. Creatively, this is what we’re trying to achieve.”
Essentials, including a white T-shirt, 15-gauge cashmere knitwear and water-resistant travel blazers, will be carried year-round, while the first capsule will be based around Lucian Freud and his arty London friends from the Fifties.
The capsule collections will drop every few months, and the Lucian Freud-themed one features a Breton long-sleeve T-shirt for 95 pounds, a black doubled-breasted corduroy jacket

uThe line includes the Voyage assortment, which consists of three men’s styles and two women’s styles created for the wind; and the Forecast lineup, which includes two men’s styles and two women’s styles designed for the rain.

La Perla to Create In-House Academy, Introduce Welfare Program

Italian luxury underwear label La Perla will open an in-house academy and introduce a series of benefits aimed at developing the business and enhancing the value of its employees. These initiatives have been included in the renovated company agreement inked with the trade unions on Dec. 22 at the firm’s headquarters in Bologna, Italy.
Called “Academy La Perla,” the permanent professional training program will be launched starting in 2017 to increase the business’ know-how, as well as integrate a new generation of workers in the firm. The training program will provide them with the technical knowledge requested for several jobs, such as designing, prototyping and tailoring. Agreements with local schools will further accelerate the recruitment process while the know-how will be transmitted to the young generation by senior employees, who will also be offered reductions of work time once closer to retirement age.
As part of the new work contract, a health-care policy, which will cost La Perla a maximum sum of 250 euros, or $ 261 at current exchange, for each worker, will be introduced March 1.
Also starting next year, a monetary bonus is expected to be established as a prize for each employee. If La Perla’s net sales reach the break-even point, each worker will receive 1,000 euros, or $ 1,045, as reward. The sum can reach a maximum of

Virgil Abloh to Introduce Furniture Designs at Art Basel Miami Beach

Off-White founder Virgil Abloh has made diagonal lines the signature imprint on sneakers, camouflage jackets, T-shirts and a number of other fashion items designed for his high-end streetwear label. Now he’s ready to emphasize clean lines in his furniture collection, which will be introduced at Art Basel Miami Beach.
Trading cotton and leather for more durable materials such as steel, stone and wood, Abloh is readying the debut of tables, chairs and credenzas at the influential art fair. While the medium changes, the theory applied toward design remains the same.
“My brand was always holistic,” Abloh said on the phone three days before the show was scheduled to open to the public on  Dec. 1. “Noticing the design in everyday is a large part of my ethos.”
Abloh’s appreciation of clean design is informed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, who set the academic curriculum and modern aesthetic for the architecture program that he attended at Illinois Institute of Technology. Beyond studying the grid on which van der Rohe built his movement in Chicago, Abloh said, “I am very much a student of Tom Sachs or [Marcel] Duchamp in terms of how I view art and modern art and contemporary art.
