Balenciaga Takes Over Selfridges’ Corner Shop to Launch the Balenciaga Track sneakers

COP THE DROP: Balenciaga has launched its Balenciaga Track sneakers at the corner shop in Selfridges. Until Sept. 23, customers can cop the latest Balenciaga shoe, which is available in four colorways: white and orange, black, yellow and gray, and blue and orange.
Muscling in on the streetwear drop model, Selfridges created a dedicated web site for the product a week prior to the launch. During the one-week window, a limited quantity of the Balenciaga Track was made available for customers to preorder.
For those who missed the online drop, customers will only be able to get their hands on the high-tech sneaker by registering online for a time slot to purchase the shoe in a bid to eliminate the long lineups that come with usual streetwear drops.
As part of the takeover, Balenciaga has commissioned American artist Mark Jenkins to build 18 male and female statues in a variety of postures and body shapes and sizes. These statues don T-shirts, hoodies and jeans, exclusive to the Selfridges collaboration and the Balenciaga Track sneakers.
Three-meter-high screens have also been installed in the space and the new Balenciaga Track is projected in 3-D. The sneakers retail at 550 pounds.

Harper’s Bazaar Australia Editor in Chief Kellie Hush Quits to Launch Fashion Venture

SYDNEY – Harper’s Bazaar Australia editor in chief Kellie Hush announced on Saturday she will step down from her position after six years to launch “a unique fashion brand.”
Hush will leave the magazine on Aug. 31, with the September 2018 edition her final issue.
Deputy editor and beauty/features editor Eugenie Kelly will take over as acting editor.
A representative for publisher Bauer Media confirmed Hush has resigned but declined to comment further, noting the company will be releasing a statement on Monday.
“I’m not Anna Wintour,” said Hush, “but I think people start speculating about [editors] moving on and I made the decision, it was a personal decision, I’m doing something really exciting which I want to do.”
She added, of her abrupt announcement, which blindsided the fashion industry, “When I spoke to my publisher Fiorella Di Santo [after resigning on Friday], I was very clear I wanted to control the message. The business is in great shape, we have just smashed our September budget for advertising. At this stage our sales are up 13 percent on budget, which in this kind of market is smashing it.

Chrissy Teigen, John Legend Cheer Brooklyn Decker at Finery’s L.A. Launch

“We realized that women were spending more on their clothing than their education, and yet there is so much that is hanging in their closets that they don’t use,” said Whitney Casey by way of explaining why she and Brooklyn Decker decided to create Finery, the virtual wardrobe and styling app they launched in March 2017.
Just over a year later, the former CNN journalist and the model-actress celebrated with a launch party at the Microsoft Lounge in Culver City, Calif. While the company is based in New York, where both divide their time with Austin, Tex., Decker has a host of friends in Los Angeles, such as Chrissy Teigen, John Legend and Jen Atkin, all of whom came to cheer her on, as did New Yorker Emmy Rossum (both she and Decker are filming television shows in L.A. this summer).

Off-White, TheDoubleF Launch Capsule Collection

Off-White has teamed with Italian online retailer TheDoubleF to launch a capsule collection, which will be on sale on the e-commerce site from Wednesday.
Called TheDouble-OFF, the capsule consists of seven unisex pieces including a jacket, a hoodie, a sweatshirt, a T-shirt, a pair of jeans, as well as a hat and a belt, featuring details in the e-tailer’s signature teal green color.
“I started from the ‘TheDoubleF’ visual DNA to create a collection with a special crafted identity that relates to the Off-White core image,” said Off-White creative director and chief executive officer Virgil Abloh.
“We believe in synergies, a critical element to differentiate ourselves in a highly competitive market. So, who better than Virgil Abloh could inaugurate our series of exclusive collaborations?” TheDoubleF ceo Francesco Galli said, referring to the series of exclusive collaborations with high-end designers and brands to be developed in coming months.  “Off-White and TheDoubleF are two emerging brands with a disruptive DNA — the result is an explosive capsule collection.”
To promote the TheDouble-OFF capsule, TheDoubleF has tapped Milan-based photographer Piotr Niepsuj, who explored the theme of duality by working with two models and mirrors.
The capsule retails from 190 euros for the T-shirt to 1,400 euros for the jacket.

Stalvey to Launch Men’s Accessories

A favorite accessory brand of Beyoncé and Gigi Hadid is going to be available for men.
Stalvey, an exotic skin accessories collection created by Jason Stalvey and popular with many female celebrities, will launch its first men’s collection for fall.
The inaugural lineup, which will include duffels, backpacks, caps and small leather goods, will be exclusive to Moda Operandi, an upscale e-commerce site that just expanded into men’s wear this month.
Stalvey, who has a background in science and medicine, launched his women’s line with Barneys New York in the fall of 2014, and it’s currently offered there as well as at The Webster, Harrods, Lane Crawford and other upscale retailers.
But while he’s made his mark in women’s wear, it’s actually men’s where he got his start.
Stalvey said that while his background wasn’t in fashion, he got into the business after being unable to find an alligator skin duffel bag that fit his needs. “I thought, it can’t be that hard,” he said. “Well, it was that hard.” But he stuck with it, found artisans in the U.S. and Italy that were able to work with exotic skins, and eventually created what he believed to be the perfect duffel. That led to him

Frankies Bikinis to Launch RTW During L.A. Runway Show

Frankies Bikinis, the Los Angeles-based contemporary swimwear line founded five years ago by then-18-year-old Malibu native Frankie Aiello, is branching out into ready-to-wear. The collection will debut alongside Frankies’ resort 2019 swim collection during a runway show in L.A. on June 21.
Aiello, now 23, said she chose to forgo showing at Miami Swim Week, which she has done for the past four years. “I feel like at this point I could show in Miami with my eyes closed. Now was the time to bring it back to my hometown and do something different,” she said. (Another 18-year-old designer, Gigi Caruso, will make her Miami Swim runway debut this year.)

The designer believes there are few rules to follow in fashion anymore, which is also the idea behind her rtw collection. “I cringe when I hear the words ‘beach cover-up.’ We wanted to detach ourselves from that and create a new era of cover-ups.”
Social media, she said, has enabled customers to reach her directly asking for styling advice on how to wear their swimsuits both on and off the beach.

Zac Posen Readies for Memorial Day Launch of New Uniforms for Delta

Zac Posen’s Memorial Day plans are all about travel, as he officially launches new uniforms for Delta.
The designer will be at LaGuardia Airport Monday afternoon with Delta staffers showing off their new attire, around the same time that a Singapore departure will be taking flight wearing his designs. In total, Posen and his team are suiting up 64,000 staffers. Lands’ End partnered on the project to handle the production, which included a wide range of sizing including petites and tall.
After the Memorial Day debut, Posen will board a plane to fly to Delta’s home city of Atlanta for the start of a whirlwind 48-hour cross-country tour that will feature fashion shows in-flight and in airports. He will also make stops in Minneapolis and Los Angeles.
Having done a considerable amount of “job shadowing,” Posen said the physicality of Delta employees’ work called for micro bacterial and stretch fabrics.

PARIS — Karl Lagerfeld and Australian beauty company ModelCo celebrated their makeup collaboration by unleashing a flashmob of 100 Karlbots on Paris landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, culminating with a dance performance on Place Vendôme on Tuesday night.
The so-called beauty butlers, decked out in black suits and metallic helmets in Lagerfeld’s likeness, performed to Blondie’s “Rapture” before filing into the Hôtel d’Evreux, where Karl Lagerfeld chief executive officer Pier Paolo Righi and ModelCo ceo Shelley Sullivan welcomed guests in a space bathed in flattering pink light.

“It is truly for the beauty junkie,” Sullivan said of the one-off collection. “We call them illuminated beauty because they illuminate in some way: they either light up, or they make you shine, but I think mainly the biggest excitement is taking something to the world that has been ever so popular and collectible.”

Clergerie to Launch E-commerce Site

SHOE BIZ: Looking to spark a virtual stampede to its e-commerce site due to launch on Friday, Clergerie creative director David Tourniaire-Beauciel has whipped up an exclusive men’s and women’s sneaker in woven black and natural raffia, one of the house codes.
The site will carry the house’s men’s and women’s collections and for now will deliver to the Euro zone, the U.K. and the U.S. market. The house has also redesigned its main web site.
Clergerie chief executive officer Perry Oosting, who joined the First Heritage Brands-owned house in April 2017, said the e-commerce site will serve as a digital window into the work of Tourniaire-Beauciel, who succeeded Roland Mouret a month after Oosting’s arrival. (Tourniaire-Beauciel also designs the shoes for Balenciaga.)
The site will also be integrated with the brand’s social media platforms, and will serve to increase revenue by rendering collections available “24/7, 365 days a year,” Oosting said. The brand previously had an e-reservation system.
Future features for the site may include a personalization service and pre-order options, he said.
In a recent interview with WWD, Tourniaire-Beauciel described his take on “the new Clergerie” as a remix of key signatures: the play on masculine-feminine, architecture, comfort and craftsmanship. “[Founder Robert] Clergerie was known

EXCLUSIVE: Aquazzura to Launch Men’s Line, Lifestyle-Oriented Concept

DUBAI — Edgardo Osorio, creator of the luxury footwear brand Aquazzura, has big plans for his company. Here to celebrate the opening of his flagship in the region, he revealed that he aims to launch a men’s line within the next 18 months.
“It’s going to be modern, elegant leisure,” said Osorio. “I expect at least 50 percent will be sneakers. But sneakers you can wear to the office with a suit.”
Osorio said there is a gap in the market for men’s. “Men’s right now is either too fashion or too conservative; there isn’t a lot in between. As a man who travels for work all over the world, I find it difficult to find things I like. I end up getting one thing here, one thing there. But generally men don’t shop like that. They prefer a one-stop shop.” Osorio is confident he can fill that need. “If you have a brand that offers modern shoes at a competitive price point that feel comfortable and are young and have that elegance to them in a casual way, that will be a winning element.”
He said the brand also plans to launch a more “lifestyle-oriented project.” This, he said, will take priority over

ONE FOR THE BOYS: The Irish designer Sharon Wauchob plans to launch men’s wear — and join the coed gang — starting with London Fashion Week Men’s in June, and in concert with the Savile Row tailor Norton & Sons.
“The idea of change started with my move from Paris to London, which opened up the possibility and benefit of new avenues and new methods of showing. There was also the timing issue with deliveries and the fact that since moving to London I’ve been fascinated with bespoke men’s tailoring,” Wauchob said.

The serial entrepreneur who has launched buzzy Japanese restaurants Yardbird and Ronin is now turning her attention to the fashion world, gearing up to launch her first apparel line on Jan. 23rd.
The Canadian but Hong Kong-based business woman first founded Missbish three years ago with two friends, purely as an editorial platform, drawing inspiration by the success of Emily Weiss’ venture in cosmetics with Into the Gloss.
The site, which describes itself as a women’s fashion, fitness and lifestyle magazine, carries a street sensibility and regularly runs updates on the latest sneakers, leading to comparisons with Hypebae, the female arm ofHypebeast. Coincidentally, the Hypebeast founding team also happens to be Canadian and Hong Kong-based, but Jang says the comparisons really end there.

“Our target muse is someone who is independent, really into building community and being open to doing good things and feeling good about themselves,” Jang said. “Ultimately, looking good but that being a result of the other positive things she’s doing in her life.”

Seeing Double! Reese Witherspoon Brings Look-Alike Daughter Ava as Date to Jewelry Launch

People may mistake Ryan Phillippe‘s 18-year-old daughter Ava as his sister, but mama Reese Witherspoon could be her twin!

The mother-daughter duo attended Molly R. Stern X Sarah Chloe Jewelry Collaboration Launch Dinner in West Hollywood, California, on Monday looking like absolute mirror images of each other.

The 41-year-old actress donned a metallic patterned dress that showed off her arms along with black peep toe heels with an adorable bow detail. Ava opted for a blue velvet dress with a stylish off-the-shoulder neckline and simple strappy heels.

Though fans are impressed by the young looks of both of her parents, Ava “hates it,” according to her father.

“My daughter gets embarrassed sometimes by the fact that I do look so young and I get mistaken for her brother sometimes, which repulses her!” Ryan told James Corden on The Late Late Show with James Corden. “Like, absolutely repulses her that anyone could mistake me for her brother.”

RELATED VIDEO: Ava Phillippe Introduced to Society at Debutante Ball in Paris

In November, Ava had all eyes on her when she made her grand debut into society at the Bal des Debutantes in Paris.

“Last week felt like a dream, and I am so grateful to have so many beautiful memories from this adventure,” the teen captioned an Instagram photo showing off the size of the skirt on her Giambattista Valli Haute Couture ballgown – a gown which Witherspoon told PeopleStyle at a Tiffany & Co. event that she helped pick out “a little bit, yeah.” She added, “Giambattista Valli is a dear friend and he makes beautiful designs so we were happy and so honored that she got to wear his dress.”

Ave wrote of the event on her Instagram, “I am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to meet so many beautiful, kind, supportive, and passionate young women (and men!) at Le Bal. I also feel so privileged to take part in this event knowing that it is raising money for both the Seleni Institute and Enfants d’Asie, two organizations supporting very important causes.”

Ava was escorted by Maharaja Padmanabh Singh of Jaipur, a polo player on India’s national team, who danced the waltz together to a song from La La Land.

The event began in 1992 by Ophélie Renouard, and includes young women from notable families from all around the world. Also in attendance this year was Steve Harvey’s daughter Lori Harvey, who chose a feathery black Elie Saab gown for the occasion.

With​ ​each​ ​collection​ ​under​ ​the​ ​RD​ ​x​ ​California​ ​Girls​ ​umbrella,​ ​Rocket​ ​Dog​ ​will​ ​partner​ ​with​ ​a​ ​different ​influencer from the ​fashion and ​young​ ​Hollywood realm.
​Known​ ​for​ ​her​ ​edgy and​ masculine street-to-chic​ ​aesthetic,​ Bartoli was chosen to ​amp​ ​up​ ​the​ ​California-cool​ ​Millennial​ ​vibe.​ ​“Chloe​ ​Bartoli​ ​for​ ​RD​ ​x California​ ​Girls​ ​will​ ​bring​ ​a Nineties ​sensibility​ ​to​​ ​new​ ​heights​ ​through​ ​the​ sleek​ ​and envelope-pushing​, ​brand-​reinventing​ ​interpretations,”​ said Cathy Taylor, chief executive officer of Rocket Dog parent Millennial Brands.
Said Bartoli, “Growing​ ​up,​ ​if​ ​you​ ​didn’t​ ​have​ ​a​ ​pair​ ​of​ ​Rockets​ ​Dogs​ ​in​ ​high school,​ ​you​ ​were​ ​definitely​ ​not​ ​part​ ​of​ ​the​ ​cool​ ​crowd.​ I​ ​decided​ ​to​ ​make​ ​my​ ​collection​ ​a​ ​little​ ​bit​ ​more​ ​masculine than​ ​what​ ​they​ ​generally​ ​design​ ​​since​ ​I’m​ ​a​ ​total​ tomboy.​ I​

Balenciaga to Launch Logocentric Men’s Capsule

GO LOGO: After the unveiling by creative director Demna Gvasalia of the revisited house logo at the women’s spring ready-to-wear show in late September, Balenciaga is to launch a spring 2018 capsule collection of men’s clothing and accessories based on a continuation of the logocentric Balenciaga and Kering-branded contingent of the house’s main fall 2017 line.
Housing 47 clothing items and 14 bags and small leather goods offerings, the line will sport all-over logos and embroidered and printed versions of signature graphics like the brand’s characteristically subversive Sinners logo. The Balenciaga Race sneaker will also be revisited in an exclusive new color range, the house said in a statement.
The capsule will hit the brand’s stores and web site as well as a selection of distributors from Nov. 3 and will be available for early deliveries.

British Designers Turn Out for Browns East Halloween Store Launch

SPOOKY SPACE: “I’m not a big fan of Halloween I must say, but I have to be for my daughter,” said Roksanda Ilincic at the Browns East launch in London on Tuesday evening. “We were carving pumpkins in the office and also with my daughter. So there were a lot of pumpkins going on.”
Ilincic, Peter Pilotto, Christopher de Vos, Sandra Choi, Molly Goddard and Nicholas Kirkwood were among the guests who turned out to mark the launch of the retailer’s concept store in Shoreditch.
In October, Browns opened the 4,000-square-feet unit on the corner of Club Row and Redchurch Street in east London. It is the first iteration of the Browns Nomad project that will see the retailer move its multi-brand shop from venue to venue, or city to city, around the world.

Ilana Glazer and Phoebe Robinson Launch ‘Yaaas Queen’ Wildfang Collection

Ilana Glazer and Phoebe Robinson are adding two more titles to their already multihyphenate careers: comedy tour headliner and designer.
Glazer, best known as a co-creator and costar with Abbi Jacobson of the TV show “Broad City,” and Robinson, a comedian and writer who founded and cohosts with Jessica Williams the podcast “2 Dope Queens,” have created a limited collection of apparel with Wildfang, a women’s brand inspired by men’s wear with a feminist bent.
The mini collection — made up mainly of T-shirts, a tote, a hat and a bomber jacket that will be sold through Wildfang’s web site — features images of Glazer and Robinson, along with “Yaaas Queen Yaaas,” the long title for their upcoming and already sold-out YQY Comedy Tour.
The phrase is arguably one of the breakout moments of “Broad City” — memes, gifs and hashtags have all been made in its honor since the first network season of the show aired in early 2014 on Comedy Central. But Glazer and Robinson are quick to debunk any perception that they coined the term.
“As far as I know, the phrase ‘yaaas queen’ originates from queer people of color in the Eighties — drag ball culture and that vogue-ing tip,” Glazer said.

Nine Ballerinas Team Up to Launch Company Collective E-commerce

EN POINTE: Nine professional dancers — most of whom are under contract with the American Ballet Theatre — have banded together to create a clothing line called Company Collective.
The direct-to-consumer brand will debut online next month and is geared for stylish and physically fit city dwellers in their 20s, 30s and 40s. Non-ballet shoppers may not recognize how the compact collection was inspired by such rehearsal staples as black marley floors, satin ribbons, leather soles or pointe shoes. The dancers have experimented with using some of the tens of thousands of pointe shoes that are thrown away each year for recycled trims that will be released as special-edition pieces after the launch. The discarded shoes will also be featured in public art projects. The group of New York-based dancers plan to work with more dance companies to extend the collection.
Cofounder Jamie Kopit said, “As dancers, we’re very in tune with our bodies. We’re in the aesthetic arts, so we’re always looking at ourselves in the mirror and we’re creative. It makes sense that we could design what we put on our bodies, which we work so hard to perfect. Plus, a lot of dancers are used as muses or models

Dsquared2 to Launch Capsule Collection Against Online Bullying

MILAN — Dsquared2 founders and creative directors Dean and Dan Caten will launch a capsule collection in partnership with the cyber antibullying movement “Be Cool Be Nice.” A portion of the profits from the sale of the graphic lineup of apparel and accessories will go toward the foundation, which aims to stop online bullying of young adults and children.
“Online bullying is a powerful and scary issue that can have a lasting, negative impact on young people’s lives,” said Dean Caten. “We were bullied as kids and we understand how destructive it is,” added Dan Caten. The designers revealed they immediately joined the cause as “it’s important to give kids and teenagers who are forming their personalities space to discover themselves without judgment, criticism and hate.”
The capsule collection — which includes denim, sweatshirts, T-shirts, baseball caps, high-heeled sandals for women and sneakers for men — was conceived to channel “an attitude of strength, confidence and positivity.” Every item features the name of the foundation and the logo of the brand, contrasting the garment’s classic color palette of black, gray and white.

Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos Launch a Townhouse Concept Store

FRIENDLY TAKEOVER: Best known for their artsy approach to fashion, design duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos have taken over a three-story townhouse in South Kensington, as part of the Brompton Design District partnership with brands, which runs within the London Design Festival.
The duo set up a art and design space, filled with quirky pieces from their friends, who happen to be artists, as well. The objects are exclusive collaborations, all available for purchase, and are shown alongside the brand’s ready-to-wear collections, including spring-summer 2018, which debuted on Sunday and will be available for pre-order.
This is a premier of sorts for the brand, which doesn’t have its own brick-and-mortar.
“Yes, this is a suggestion of what [our store] might look like, but we are actually excited by the idea that this is temporary and that it gives a sense of ‘see it now or you might miss something,’” explained Pilotto at the opening on Sunday. Added De Vos: “We really don’t like the word pop-up, but we’ve been using it because this is a five-week-stunt, and it is a concept that works for us. There are so many different aspects to us and our work, and this is a great way

Canali to Launch Eyewear Line

MILAN — Canali SpA has inked a five-year licensing agreement with L’Amy America, part of International Luxury Group, to produce and distribute a luxury collection of sunglasses and ophthalmic frames. The collection will bow at Milan’s eyewear trade show MIDO next year and will be rolled out globally starting in March.
This is a first in terms of brand extensions for the Italian family-owned men’s wear group. General manager Stefano Canali underscored how this category in particular has “substantial content,” and stands out since it “frames the face.” The executive said finding the right partner was a priority and praised L’Amy for having Canali’s same “values and codes,” for the company’s use of first-rate materials and expertise, and its technology and craftsmanship.
He also noted that this is a first step in a strategy of extensions spanning over the next five years. “We are in no rush, we want to do things well.”
The rollout will be “well-calibrated. We don’t want to flood our stores with eyewear.” He emphasized how it was key for the product to reflect the quality of the brand, and was upbeat about the potential of eyewear for Canali. “There is room for a well-done product, that will help

Proenza Schouler to Launch New Line

Proenza Schouler is launching a secondary collection in November, WWD has learned. Reportedly called “White Label” the line is not being billed as a diffusion line, but a “sister” collection comprised of the more casual pieces — denim, T-shirts, basics — that have been part of the main line for a while but are being separated out and highlighted in an effort to boost the business with more accessible, affordable options. In January, Elizabeth Giardina joined the design team from Derek Lam 10 Crosby, where she had been vice president of design for five years.
The new collection is the second big move this year from Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez and their chief executive officer, Judd Crane, who is new to the c-suite. He was previously a buyer at Selfridges and succeeded Ron Frasch, who was acting ceo at Proenza Schouler. The company realigned its spring show to the Paris couture schedule in an effort to get more of its runway show into stores and take advantage of the bigger budgets afforded to the pre-collections.

YouTube’s ClothesEncounters Jenn Im to Launch Fashion Label

IM’S ADDED INFLUENCE: Through her popular lifestyle channel ClothesEncounters, YouTuber Jenn Im already has a captive audience in advance of this month’s launch of her fashion label Eggie.
Unveiling Aug. 22, the direct-to-consumer collection will have hints of her own favorite styles and statement pieces, including gender-neutral ones. The $ 25 to $ 79 price range is no doubt meant to make the collection within reach of her admirers — 1.5 million on Instagram alone. Shoppers will find cropped tops, bodysuits, hoodies, bomber jackets, tracksuits, jumpsuits and blazers. Those familiar with her beauty and fashion tutorials will recognize the easy style.
Earlier this year, Im was one influencer who helped digitally extend the “Donate Stuff. Create Jobs.” campaign that was organized by Goodwill and the Ad Council. The vlogger has been pretty public about her own thrifting, a practice she started doing at the age of 15. (As recently as Sunday she posted a video of her “man” thrifting her outfits.)
The Korean American Im calls Los Angeles home but she recently touched down in the Hamptons for Revolve. Introducing her own apparel label is ambitious for Im, who cofounded ClothesEncounter with Sarah Chu in 2010. In that time, her social footprint has exceeded 4.1 million

CFDA, Accessories Council Select Participants in Elaine Gold Launch Pad

The Council of Fashion Designers of America, in partnership with the Accessories Council, has unveiled the participants in the inaugural Elaine Gold Launch Pad business innovation program.
The Elaine Gold Launch Pad is a four-year partnership underwritten by a $ 1.5 million donation to the CFDA Foundation. It is in honor of Elaine Gold, the accessories executive, who died in 2015.
The program focuses on assisting emerging designers, from those just starting out to ones who have been in business for three years, to launch their careers in apparel, accessories, jewelry or textiles and knitwear.
The six designers are: Alexis Isabel of her namesake brand (footwear); Emily Adams Bode, Bode (men’s wear); Lucy Jones, Ffora (accessories, innovation); Ali Rose, Jack Burns, Mark Richardson, Genusee (optical); Maria Kazakova, Jahnkoy (women’s wear, men’s wear), and Jameel Mohammed, Khiry (jewelry).
The board selected 11 finalists from 97 applications. Each finalist received a $ 2,500 stipend toward their Live Design Pitch presentation, which took place at the CFDA on July 27,  as well as mentorship from Ideo’s Sabastien Park.
The participants will take part in a six-month virtual residency, which will combine creative and business mentorship with micro awards totaling $ 175,000. The goal of the program is to develop visionary ideas

A. Sauvage to Launch Sportswear Collection After Moving Studio to L.A.

Adrien Sauvage, who established his men’s wear label A. Sauvage in London in 2010, has become the latest designer to decamp for Los Angeles, opening up a studio in Beverly Hills this summer.
“Basically I came here for Christmas holiday and I never went back,” said Sauvage, who said Robert Downey Jr. was among the first of his clients to encourage the move. Sauvage launched his line of contemporary suiting in Harrods, then opened his own shop on Bond Street, and today his made-to-measure pieces are also available online. He still travels back to London every eight weeks for his made-to-measure clients, but says the California lifestyle has inspired a new idea — a sportswear line due out in January.
“I surveyed the land of T-shirts. I thought two or three years ago the whole sportswear thing was going to go in the bin, but it’s still here. It’s even tweaked my own style a bit. My sportswear line is going to have a casual elegance, the whole seven days a week wardrobe. It’s perfect for getting on or off a plane,” he said. He is still exploring wholesale partners for the line.

Ethical E-commerce Site Fashionkind to Launch Fine Jewelry Vault

With the launch of its first capsule collection, comprising 30 accessories, ready-to-wear and fine jewelry items from 11 designers worldwide, ethical e-commerce platform Fashionkind is moving toward expanding its offerings in the sustainable luxury space. Founded two years ago by former investment banker Nina Farran, Fashionkind curates sustainable luxury products from companies that give back to underserved societies and the environment.
The capsule collection includes exclusive pieces such as hand-painted jeans from Rialto Jean Project, sunglasses from Michael Nelson, bags from Khokho, as well as dinner-to-drinks apparel from Indego Africa and Colette Sol. Also included for the first time are five fine jewelry brands — Sandy Leong, Lola Fenhirst, Dana Bronfman, Tejen and Kimberlin Brown — which will be a part of the site’s fine jewelry “vault” launching in September. Prices range from $ 425 to $ 18,000 for a pair of grey and white diamond and recycled 18-karat gold drop earrings.
“I wanted to do something beyond one-offs that would go toward developing the collection and the brand,” said Farran. “After talking to brands such as Edun and Maiyet, we decided to make some changes to the site to better tell these stories.

The Amalfi offers an elastic waistband, side pockets, a full lining and is made from a quick-dry fabric. The Bond board short has a snap button front, side pockets and also utilizes quick-dry fabric.
“I was determined to make a proper swimwear collection that was about fit, performance and quality. I spent the last couple of years developing swimwear in Portugal because I want to give our customer the craftsmanship and quality of a fine European garment,” Brunner said.

Daniel Hechter to Launch Men’s Sportswear Line

Daniel Hechter is making a bigger play in the U.S.
The brand, which was started by Hechter as a women’s collection in 1962 and moved into men’s and children’s six years later, wants to broaden its reach with a sportswear collection it will present at New York Men’s Day on Monday. The line will launch exclusively with Macy’s in October.
“We saw this as an opportunity to bring a European brand to the U.S.,” said Mark Bushby, the men’s sales director at Daniel Hechter. “We thought there was a white space in the market for affordable, European designer product.”
According to Bushby, who was previously the men’s director at Calvin Klein Collection, the sportswear line is an attempt to make the entire lifestyle assortment more contemporary. The collection, which is designed in Paris, consists of shirts, sweaters, jerseys, pants, blazers, lightweight outerwear and leather pieces. The line retails from around $ 75 to $ 450.
Hechter is no longer involved with the line, which he sold to Miltenberger-Otto Aulbach GmbH in 1998. The collection is carried in 2,500 points of sale globally and the sportswear is licensed by Shanghai Shenda America LLC.

Geller Readies Gustav von Aschenbach Launch

NEW YORK — Just call him Gustav.
Robert Geller’s new brand, which he will unveil Tuesday with a show during New York Fashion Week: Men’s, may have a mouthful of a name – Gustav von Aschenbach – but that’s in direct contrast to its style, which focuses on casual, oversize silhouettes with few embellishments.
“In my mind, that’s where men’s wear is going,” he said. “It’s about silhouettes and ease.”
Geller said he’d been “thinking about silhouettes for a long time” and felt he was finally ready to branch out.
The general shape of the silhouettes is “quite round,” he said, and the pieces are all manufactured in Japan from Japanese fabrics and are “more simple than Robert Geller.” There are no prints or patterns — although a couple of pieces have stripes. Linens and linen blends with “some synthetics mixed in” provide a worn-in aesthetic. There are oversize T-shirts and sweatshirts, cowl-neck anoraks, softly tailored topcoats and utilitarian jackets, “light and breezy pants” and shirts in “crunchy” fabrics. Knit bombers and cardigans as well as a few oversize canvas bags and sneakers round out the offering.

Bad Boy Entertainment to Launch Macy’s Pop-up

Bad Boy Entertainment is expanding into retail.
The record label, which was founded by Sean “Diddy” Combs, is producing the Heritage collection, a line of Bad Boy merchandise that will be exclusive to Macy’s.
To celebrate the new endeavor and the release of Combs “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” documentary, which is currently streaming on Apple Music, Macy’s will hold a pop-up at its 34th Street flagship in New York that will run for six weeks starting Wednesday, June 28. July 1 also marks the 20th anniversary of Combs’ first album, “No Way Out.”
“Bad Boy is about following your dreams,” said Combs. It only made sense for me to team up with Macy’s for our Heritage Collection. This collection represents a movement I started in 1993, when I was a dreamer. When you work hard and believe, your dreams can come true. Twenty five years later, I’m still dreaming. We’re still pushing forward. Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop.”
The pop-up will be stocked with Bad Boy graphic T-shirts, coach jackets, hats, hoodies, baseball and basketball jerseys, including the yellow style Bad Boy artist Notorious B.I.G. wore in his debut video “Juicy.” The collection, which retails from $ 28 to $ 88, will be sold at Macy’s locations nationwide.

Teddy Ondo Ella to Launch Namesake Tailoring Line Embodying Modern Africa

PARIS — You’ve heard of Made in France, China or Italy. But what about Made in Gabon?
Entrepreneur Teddy Ondo Ella, who grew up between France and Gabon, a country located on the equator in western Africa, is out to set things straight. The self-taught designer a few months ago launched his urban streetwear line, Only Made in Gabon, which is based on Gabonese codes but produced in Portugal. The upcoming edition of New York Fashion Week: Men’s in July, meanwhile, will see the launch of an eponymous tailoring line hooked on an update of the traditional short-sleeved Gabonese suit dubbed the Abacos, short for “à bas le costume,” which in English translates to “down with the suit.”
“It was created by Africans in the Seventies as a [symbol] of anticolonialism. They took all the specifications of a regular suit, but did it their way, with a high collar and short sleeves. It’s supereasy,” said Ondo Ella, adding: “My father’s generation still wears it, but I want to bring it back and put a younger spin on it.”
Whereas the traditional Abacos is cut super loose, Ondo Ella said his take is more fitted, using top-of-the-line cloths such as weighty cottons by Cerruti.

The fashion house will launch a limited-edition color cosmetics collection with Australian beauty company ModelCo in early 2018, WWD has learned. This follows earlier collaborations with Shu Uemura on capsule holiday collections.

British Designers Turn Out for Launch of ‘The World of Anna Sui’ Exhibition

SPOTLIGHT ON SUI: Designer love was flowing on Thursday night at the opening party for Anna Sui’s retrospective at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum on Thursday night. Among the guests were Sui’s creative peers, including Stephen Jones, John Rocha, Pam Hogg, Twiggy and Rifat Özbek.
“She’s been collecting my clothes for years. Then I gradually got to know her — which has been wonderful,” said Zandra Rhodes, who founded the museum in 2003. Rhodes, who first met Sui 15 years ago, said her favorite bits of the show were the prints she did for Sui “when she did her Tahiti collection.”
Rhodes has recently been working on prints for Valentino’s men’s wear and resort collections.
Jones said he met Sui in 1982 through Marc Jacobs and the jeweler Karen Erickson. He said his favorite Sui moment was the designer’s spring 1994 show at New York Fashion Week. “Linda [Evangelista], Naomi [Campbell] and Christy [Turlington], coming down the runway in little baby-doll dresses — genius,” Jones said.
Known for her exuberant looks made from rich fabrics, prints and colors, and for tapping into subcultures, “The World of Anna Sui” features 125 ensembles complete with accessories, shoes and hats and highlights the designer’s collaborations, collections, interior work

Krammer & Stoudt to Launch Made-to-Measure

Krammer & Stoudt is bringing its aesthetic to the tailored clothing business.
The independent men’s brand that is known for blending Southwest and Southern California influences with an East Coast bent, is teaming with Brooklyn-based master tailor Martin Greenfield Clothiers on a made-to-measure suit program that will launch on June 1. Additionally, Krammer & Stoudt is working with Newark, N.J.-based Mitch Gambert on a line of custom shirts.
The initiative will offer imported fabrics chosen by the brand and is intended to appeal to men who are seeking a custom fit in unique fabrications.
“The Krammer & Stoudt client lives and breathes creativity,” said designer Michael Rubin. “In whatever his occupation, he is the visionary. He wants to look appropriately sharp, but also wants to express himself confidently in his sartorial choices.”
Krammer & Stoudt will host private appointments with customers and take the initial measurements and help them select the fabric, style and fit. Once an order is submitted, it will take about five weeks to receive a finished suit and two weeks to receive a finished shirt. A second appointment for final fitting and adjustments may be necessary.
The suits will retail between $ 1,600 and $ 2,400 and shirts will average $ 250.

Anna Sui Gears Up for London Exhibition, Secures Fall Launch for Teen Home Decor With PBteen

OPERATION ANNA: The upcoming opening of “The World of Anna Sui” at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London is only one of the many projects Anna Sui has going on this year.
While not the exhibition’s official catalogue, Abrams will publish “The World of Anna Sui” book on May 30. Sui will also roll out a home decor collection geared for teenagers with PBteen, a Williams-Sonoma brand, in September.
In the meantime, the crunch is on before the May 26 opening of what will be the American designer’s first retrospective in the U.K. More than 100 mannequins will be suited up in items from her archives, which are in the process of being shipped to the London museum that was started by Zandra Rhodes. Staffers at Sui’s West 39th Street offices are busy packing up the “ephemeron, accessories and tons of stuff” that will be featured in the show, which will runs through Oct. 1, said Sui’s longtime righthand-man Thomas Miller. “All the mannequins are fully accessorized from head-to-toe. Anna just piles on the accessories so it’s a lot,” Miller said.
While Sui is good friends with Rhodes, the roots of the exhibition stemmed from her meeting the museum’s director. A few

Swimsuits for All to Launch Smaller Sizes

Swimsuits for All is growing its size offering.
The swimwear brand, which has catered to curvy women since 2005, will produce sizes 4 and 6 within the Ashley Graham capsule collection, which is available online starting today. The 11-piece line consists of bikinis, one-pieces and cover-ups that are priced between $ 70 and $ 100 and available from sizes 4 to 22.
“In the past two years we’ve started getting a response from smaller-size women who were disappointed we didn’t sell suits in their size range,” said Sara Mitzner, vice president of creative and branding at Swimsuits for All. “This was the first opportunity we had from a business standpoint to expand our size range and we’re happy to now cater to even more women.”
According to Mitzner, for a short time period when the company first started, Swimsuits for All targeted men, women and children of all sizes, but began to focus the business on women sizes 8 and up due to customer response. Mitzner believes existing Swimsuits for All’s customers will welcome this change.
“We’re lucky to live in a culture now of women supporting women. The community of women on social media right now is incredible. There’s been such an outpouring of acceptance for

Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Launch Mental Health Film Series

This is the kind of royal treatment mental health deserves.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are yet again lending their voice to those living with mental illness, this time with a 10-part film series through their mental health campaign Heads Together.

The initiative, which is called #OKToSay, features videos on the importance of speaking up for mental health. The goal is to encourage more people to start discussions around emotional well-being. Prince Harry is also participating in the project.

Attitudes to mental health are at a tipping point,” the royals said in a statement. “We hope these films show people how simple conversations can change the direction of an entire life. Please share them with your friends and families and join us in a national conversation on mental health in the weeks ahead.”

Each video showcases people with mental health issues as they talk about how acknowledging their condition helped them learn to accept and manage it. They also highlight stories about the person’s first time talking about mental health with a loved one. The conversations explore the importance of not staying silent when it comes mental illness.

The trio launched the new videos on Thursday right before World Health Day, which this year aims to focus on depression and the treatment gap for the disorder. Recent data from the World Health Organization found that depression rates have climbed 18 percent in the last decade. More than 300 million people globally experience the mental health condition, yet nearly half of them don’t get treatment.

Previous research suggests people may avoid seeking help due fear of shame from their peers. Public advocacy like William, Kate and Harry’s can help change that, according to experts.

Head on over to the Heads Together campaign’s website to watch the #OKToSay videos and learn more about the project.

Cristiano Ronaldo to Launch CR7 Denim Line

Cristiano Ronaldo has expensive taste.
When the Real Madrid soccer player isn’t on the field, he likes to wear denim from Balmain, Givenchy and Dsquared2. But oftentimes, these brands don’t fit him off the rack. This dilemma was tdhe starting point for CR7, his men’s denim brand that will be available in June.
“I don’t take myself too seriously, but I take what I do very seriously. So when I had the opportunity to launch my own denim line, I didn’t want it to be like any other line on the market,” Ronaldo said. “Inspired by what’s important to me, this collection is for more than just my fans. It’s for anyone who shares my values, who lives a limitless life and loves denim.”
It’s being produced and distributed by Uniti Fashion, a sourcing and manufacturing company founded in South Africa. The line is designed around the premise of comfort and high-fashion influences.
“We are doing more on a daily basis and we need clothes that can work for us,” said Henry Monsell, global marketing director for CR7. “With this line, we are showing Cristiano’s persona off the field and telling a story about his work ethic, discipline and loyalty.”

Raj Swim Looks to Break the Mold With Launch of Vyb

In the battle for swim market share, Raj Manufacturing looked from within and is trying a new tack with the launch of its Vyb line.
The line, pronounced vibe, was developed with the help of about a dozen Millennials — many of them company employees and a few bloggers — and manufactures locally in Tustin, Calif., using deadstock fabric — of which some is luxury quality from some of the big name brands for which its parent Raj produces swimsuits.
The strategy aims to be relevant to that oh-so-powerful Millennial consumer and also appeal to the sustainability and transparency that have helped brands such as Everlane and Reformation nab loyal followings.
It’s perhaps the best of both worlds for Vyb with the backing of a large parent in Raj — which designs and makes designer and private label swimwear and also operates the retailer SwimSpot — that has taken a largely hands-off approach to the line’s development, pointed out Raj senior designer Holly Swope.
“It wasn’t hyper-managed or micromanaged. It was very organic and real and authentic,” Swope said of the line’s development.
The idea behind the brand was to appeal to a consumer’s different style moods rather than being, for example, only a bohemian-inspired

Galeries Lafayette to Launch Rolf Ekroth Capsule

HYERES, HYERES: Showing its support for young designers, French department store Galeries Lafayette for the third year in a row has invited a fashion finalist from the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography to create a capsule to be sold in a selection of its stores.
Following in the footsteps of Louis-Gabriel Nouchi and Sophie Harand, Finland’s Rolf Ekroth has designed a unisex capsule of rain gear that will go on sale at Galeries Lafayette Haussmann in Paris in September, as well as in a handful of regional department stores operated by the retailer and its e-shop.
Housing four apparel designs and two sneakers, the line will be unveiled at the Hyères Festival’s upcoming edition in late April, in the “Formers” area of the Villa Noailles.
Ekroth, who started out his career as a social worker then professional poker player, studied fashion at Helsinki’s Aalto University, making his way to the festival with a men’s wear collection inspired by golf.
Galeries Lafayette, a longtime sponsor of the festival, for the first time will announce its next guest designer at the event’s prize-giving ceremony on April 30.

Azealia Banks Looked Cheeky at the Moncler x Greg Lauren Launch

REAR WINDOW: Azealia Banks, “Vampire Diaries” actress Kat Graham and the designer Peter Dundas turned out for the launch of Moncler’s special collection with the artist and designer Greg Lauren during Paris Fashion Week.
The collection, dubbed Collide, features iconic Moncler puffer jackets torn off at the waist and stitched together with vintage pieces including Dickies jumpsuits, military uniforms and jean jackets.
At the VNH Gallery in the Marais, a number of the looks were displayed in a special tent that echoed the look of the collection — seeming to have been ripped and sewn back together with one half in blue puffer and the other in a military-inspired canvas.
The rapper Banks also opted for a deconstructed look, rolling up to the party in a pair of barely there Daisy Dukes that were cut into a thong in the back.
The collection by Greg Lauren — who is the nephew of designer Ralph — is the latest in a string of collaborations with artists and performers that Moncler has forged since 2004, including with Junya Watanabe, Comme des Garçons, Pharrell Williams and the Rolling Stones.
Each of around 200 pieces created by Lauren for the collection is unique and limited edition. The collection will be available from the

Petit Bateau to Launch Capsule by Hyères Festival Winner Wataru Tominaga

STRIPES EARNED: Hyères festival winner Wataru Tominaga’s graphic, pop sensibility comes splashed across a capsule for Petit Bateau due to launch in time for summer.
The hook-up marks a tradition upheld by the brand since partnering with the festival in 2013 where winners of the event’s Première Vision Grand Jury Prize are invited to reinterpret iconic Petit Bateau garments and codes. The designer follows in the footsteps of previous laureates Satu Maaranen, Kenta Matsushige and Annelie Schubert.
Tominaga layered up motifs on the capsule’s sporty creations which vibrate with green, red and blue milleraies and marinière stripes interspersed with checks and blooms.
“As a designer who is more focused on personal development, it was an interesting challenge to come up with designs for Petit Bateau, which is about democratic yet high-quality clothing. It was about finding the right balance,” said Tominaga who was compared to a “young Issey Miyake” by Julien Dossena, president of the festival’s 2016 fashion jury.
The designer, who got to visit the brand’s factory in Troyes and was given access to a number of archive designs, is currently on an artists’ residency program at the Palais de Tokyo and is due to present a performance piece in a private residence in Athens

Jennifer Lopez, Giuseppe Zanotti Celebrate Shoe Launch at Neiman Marcus

ALL THAT GLITTERS: Neiman Marcus’ windows facing Wilshire Boulevard dazzled in the frosty night air Thursday and were hard to miss once the curtains dropped.
Jennifer Lopez’s arrival, running a little over an hour behind schedule, was cause for celebration among those braving the cold to see her and also signified the big window display unveil. Neiman’s four windows now contain a bedazzled array of some of Lopez’s memorable looks, including the plunging green silk chiffon number by Versace that she wore to the Grammys and a silver cutout dress by Charbel Zoe worn at the MTV Video Music Awards.
The sparkles were fitting as Lopez and Giuseppe Zanotti were on hand at the Beverly Hills store to mark the launch of their collection Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez. The line was introduced this month at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom, among other retailers. The collection, which also includes two handbags, retails from $ 795 to $ 1,995.
“It’s easy to work [with her] because if you are close to the artist you have a deep connection,” Zanotti said.

Adam Lippes to Launch Men’s Wear Collection on Matchesfashion

Adam Lippes is creating his first full men’s wear collection for luxury e-commerce site Matchesfashion.com.
According to Lippes, his original plan was to sell a small assortment of men’s wear on his e-commerce site, but after mentioning the line to the team at Matchesfashion, which sells his women’s collection, they became intrigued and started to work together on the assortment.
“My whole concept is a little fashion in men’s can go a very long way,” said Lippes, who added that during trunk shows many female customers ask about men’s wear. “These are seasonless clothes that the customer is going to live in. They aren’t fashion with a capital ‘f’ pieces that are going to be marked down.”
The 16-piece line, which Lippes is calling “ath-luxury,” includes knits made with a double-face Italian merino fabric, dress shirts in two lengths, T-shirts, casual cotton pants, wide cotton shorts and a sweatshirt. The collection, which retails from $ 95 to $ 390, comes in a neutral palette of powder blue, heather gray, navy, tobacco and white. It will be available on Matchesfashion.com and Adamlippes.com on Jan. 26.

Louis Vuitton, UNICEF Launch #Makeapromise Day

GOOD CAUSE: Louis Vuitton is to launch its first #makeapromise day on Jan. 12 in partnership with the United Nation’s Children’s Fund, or UNICEF, to raise funds for children in urgent need.
The initiative comes a year after the luxury brand embarked on the charitable project with an initial three-year global partnership with the UNICEF fund.
During this day, some 12,000 Louis Vuitton sales associates in 460 Louis Vuitton stores worldwide will pitch the partnership and promote the sales of the Silver Lockit jewelry items, with $ 200 from each sale of the $ 600 pendant and $ 500 bracelet donated to UNICEF. An offer will be made that day for those who purchase two Silver Lockits items in all Louis Vuitton stores and on louisvuitton.com.
The event will be held in tandem with a campaign where clients will be encouraged to come accompanied with someone close to make a “pinky promise” and to share their promise online with a hashtag #makeapromise. Vuitton staff is also inviting clients to make direct donations online throughout the year and especially during emergencies.
Since January 2016, the partnership has helped raise $ 2.5 million to help bring children life-saving humanitarian support in Syria and Nigeria.

Heacket, ‘World’s Most Durable Heated Jacket,’ Readies for Launch

HOT HOT HEAT: Owen Zhang is a self-professed lover of the outdoors.
After getting his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at the The University of Minnesota Twin Cities in Minneapolis, Zhang traveled home to Shenzhen, China to launch Meltpartners, a company that manufactures and retails outdoor sporting goods. In 2014, he linked with a company there called Heacket — a play on the words “heat” and “jacket” — and together the two set out to create “the world’s most durable heated jacket.”
Two years later, a new line of jackets is ready for its debut. The Heacket team has set up an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to test the market, where interested buyers can preorder the style at a discounted price.
WWD received an early sample of the jacket, a chic navy blue style with a generous hood, red contrast zipper detailing and a wind and water-resistant outer shell. The jacket is also offered in pink and black in a range of sizes for men and women. There are four battery-operated controlled heating zones — both battery and charger are included with purchase — and the jacket takes three seconds to warm up.

Roc-A-Fella Records Cofounder Kareem ‘Biggs’ Burke to Launch 14 Capsule Collections Nationwide

Kareem “Biggs” Burke is executive producing a new type of project.
The cofounder of Roc-A-Fella records is overseeing the simultaneous drop of 14 Roc96 collections at 14 specialty stores throughout the U.S. starting in December. Each collection is inspired by a different song from “Reasonable Doubt,” Jay Z’s debut album that turned 20 this year.
“I was trying to do one drop a month and obviously there are 14 songs and there aren’t 14 months in a year, so we decided to consolidate it,” said Burke, who tasked his design team with thoroughly listening to the album before creating the collection. The line, which retails from $ 25 to $ 145, features T-shirts, hoodies, hats, beanies and reprinted “Reasonable Doubt” cassettes. The assortment has graphics and messaging that riff off of lyrics from the classic album.
The Foundation Showroom is handling the distribution of the collection, which will be available on Dec. 4, Jay Z’s 47th birthday, at the following stores: Social Status locations in Pennsylvania and North Carolina; A Ma Maniere in Atlanta; Feature in Las Vegas; Woodstack in Brooklyn; Politics in New Orleans; Creme in Norfolk, Va.; Xhibition in Cleveland; Corporate in Cincinnati; Ubiq in Philadelphia; Concepts in Manhattan and Boston; Soho Gallery in

F4D Development’s Evie Evangelou to Launch Sustainia Living at Copenhagen Fashion Summit

F4D’s NEW WAY OF LIFE: Fashion 4 Development founder Evie Evangelou will have a captive audience when she launches Sustania Living at this month’s Copenhagen Fashion Summit.
First held in 2009 during the United Nations’ Climate Change Conference — COP15 — in Copenhagen, the summit has also been held in spring 2012 and 2014. More than 1,200 attendees are expected at this year’s edition at the Copenhagen Concert Hall. The nonprofit gathering is organized by Danish Fashion Institute on behalf of Nordic Fashion Association.
This year’s edition will include presentations by HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, H&M’s head of sustainability Anna Gedda, and Renzo Rosso, the president of OTB, the parent company of Diesel, Maison Margiela, Marni and Viktor & Rolf.
At the May 12 all-day event, Evangelou will talk up Sustainia Living, a platform created in collaboration with Sustainia, an offshoot of the leading Scandinavian think tank Monday Morning, to try to raise awareness about sustainable living and motivate individuals to be more conscientious consumers.

FKA Twigs to Launch Fragrance

SMELL THE TWIGS: FKA Twigs has been described as a rising star and an all-around enigma, but she’s yet to be called a fragrance creator — until now. The multihyphenate music phenomenon is collaborating with House of Matriarch on a fragrance due out later this year, according to the indie scent brand’s founder Christi Meshell.
Meshell connected with FKA Twigs two years ago when she developed a custom perfume for the performer. “Real beauty knocks you a little bit off-kilter, and FKA Twigs knocks you a little bit off-kilter. She brings a feminine voice to beauty in a new and raw way,” Meshell said, quoting David Byrne. “I am really happy to be working with her. She’s inspiring to me. She’s gutsy.” She added it hasn’t been determined whether the upcoming scent will be a version of the custom perfume or a completely different fragrance. Regardless, don’t expect FKA Twigs to rush the fragrance into Wal-Mart stores. “She’s very antiestablishment like I am. She doesn’t want to sell it at any retailer,” said Meshell. “Overnight, she’s going to add it to her Web site. Her fans are dying for anything she drops.”

Uniqlo and Lemaire Have a Winning Weekend Launch

Already committed to making the Uniqlo and Lemaire collaboration more than a one-season wonder, Uniqlo has added production runs for fall in advance of holiday sales.
Lines formed outside Uniqlo’s three Manhattan stores for Friday morning’s launch and some stores sold out of select items by lunchtime, according to Justin Kerr, director of merchandising. There were also lines intermittently throughout the weekend as stock was replenished, and a velvet rope was set up in the SoHo store to keep everyone orderly.
“It was our best example of how high the demand was. With this launch, we put up a special landing page 30 days before. It received such a strong reception from so many different people. We were really excited to see so much engagement before the collaboration started. That carried through to the online sales,” Kerr said. “We launched it at midnight on Thursday, and by 8 a.m. Friday there were very exciting results even in those eight hours when everyone was presumably sleeping. Some must have missed some sleep to order Lemaire.”
Knitwear and outerwear were the strongest categories, with a $ 170 cashmere blended robe coat and a $ 70 cashmere blend square sweater being two bestsellers. An assortment of the 31-piece

Gaultier Hits Tokyo to Launch Japan Apparel Collection

Jean Paul Gaultier held court at the French embassy in Tokyo on Wednesday to launch his collection for Japanese retail giant Seven & i Holdings. The project is Gaultier’s first fashion foray outside couture since he discontinued his own pret-a-porter line last year.
The designer said he was overwhelmed by the work involved in producing luxury ready-to-wear and the need to churn out several collections a year.
“I wanted to concentrate on what I like. What do I like? To make couture. To make pret-a-porter also, but not like the way it is now, because now you have to make pre-collection, cruise, all that, you know, which is a lot a lot of demand. And it doesn’t really stop…which is not good, because we have no time to think,” Gaultier told a press conference. “So I prefer to be free of that, and to make some capsules and some experiences and some new adventures that give me more freedom. And in that way I feel more free and more energetic and a little more excited.”
The line, called Jean Paul Gaultier for Sept Premieres, goes on sale Wednesday online and at Seibu and Sogo department stores and Ito Yokado general stores across Japan.

Supra Marks Noiz Shoe Launch With First Print Campaign

To mark the launch of the Noiz, its new lifestyle sneaker, Supra, which was recently acquired by K-Swiss Global Brands, is introducing its first print campaign.
Titled, “Always on the Run,” the ad features skater Boo Johnson wearing the Noiz. The print campaign, which will kick off this week, coincides with a microsite and an Instagram initiative where Supra ambassadors, including photographer Humza Deas, Australian street artist Meggs, filmmaker Sergi Castellà and chef Michael Voltaggio, create their own branded content. Fans can submit photos and videos using the #AlwaysOnTheRun hashtag and the handle @SupraFootwear for a chance to win the Noiz sneakers or a free trip to New York.
“There is no one that’s more of a creative and independent spirit than the skateboarder,” said Robert “Cape” Capener, Supra’s brand president. “They are constantly on the move and have an insatiable curiosity about what’s around the corner.”
According to Capener, this campaign marks the beginning of a much larger 2016 plan, which will include celebrating the company’s 10th anniversary and a larger global push. And despite the change in ownership, Supra’s ethos remains the same, Capener said.
“From day one, we’ve said that Supra was born from skate and we are going to stick

Shay Mitchell, Kohl’s Launch Ath-leisure Line

“PRETTY LITTLE LIARS” STAR LAUNCHES LINE WITH KOHL’S: Move over, Kate Hudson and Carrie Underwood. “Pretty Little Liars” star Shay Mitchell is the latest actress to step onto the ath-leisure playing field.
Mitchell inked a deal with Kohl’s to launch Fit to Wander, a collection of sports bras, graphic Ts, fashion tanks and leggings retailing from $ 24 to $ 48, for the back-to-school season. “The line speaks to my personal philosophy of embracing all that life has to offer and being the best you can be, whatever your passions,” said Mitchell. Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief merchandising and customer officer, added, “It embodies Shay’s adventurous spirit and fashion savvy.” The line offers details such as leggings with adjustable waistbands that can be worn up high for more coverage or folded down for a low-rise look, strategic seams and panels that flatter the figure, extended bust bands on bras to reduce garment shifting and chafing, and racer back straps for a full range of motion. The leggings and sports bras are made from Wandertech, a polyester-Spandex blend with sweat wicking and a 4-way stretch. The other pieces are made from baby French terry and cotton/rayon for maximum draping and comfort. Mitchell is repped by

P.J. Salvage on Track to Launch Intimates, Boost Kids’ Offering

Lounge and sleepwear brand P.J. Salvage is set to launch intimates and is also preparing for a re-set of its kids’ offering under new parent Delta Galil Industries Ltd.
P.J. Salvage’s parent, Loomworks Apparel, was acquired for an undisclosed sum by the Tel Aviv-based firm in a deal revealed this month. The transaction is expected to close Friday.
Nothing changes operationally as a result of the deal and P.J. Salvage headquarters will remain in Irvine, Calif., P.J. Salvage chief executive officer Peter Burke said.
“The whole acquisition by Delta certainly opens up a whole new world for us as far as worldwide distribution and production,” Burke said.
The company thinks there’s room in the market for its assortment of bralettes, bandeaux, thongs, hipsters, shorts and kimonos — some of which can be mixed and matched with casual day looks.
“P.J. Salvage has a really strong brand following worldwide and the time is right for us to launch intimates,” Burke said. “We’re not trying to compete against a lot of the other brands putting out a basic lace, thong and panty.”
The collection includes roughly 30 stockkeeping units priced at retail, come February, between $ 18 and $ 70.
Within the intimates line will be a bridal collection aimed at the

Jos. A. Bank Veteran to Launch Online Men’s Business

A new player is poised to enter the men’s wear scene.
Steve Marshall, the former divisional vice president of merchandising for Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc., has teamed with some of his co-workers at the Hampshire, Md.-based chain to create Wilkes & Riley.
The business, which will launch in November as an online play, will offer a full collection of men’s wear, from tailored clothing and furnishings to sportswear.
“Retail has been in my blood since I was a kid,” Marshall told WWD. He started his career at Bugle Boy and moved on to Merry Go Round before joining Jos. A. Bank in 1999.
Marshall said he was offered the opportunity to remain with Bank by its new owners, Men’s Wearhouse, which purchased the business for $ 1.8 billion last year, but didn’t want to relocate to California, where the corporation is headquartered. So he opted instead to remain in Maryland and use the skills he had acquired over the years in sourcing and merchandising to open a new company.
Wilkes & Riley will be self-financed and Marshall said he has some other investors as well.
“I always wanted to run my own company and be the head of the ship,” he said. “Jos. A. Bank was a

Mary Katrantzou, Adidas Launch Second Capsule Collection

EIGHTIES EDGE: “I’m an Eighties baby, and it was amazing to just go back and look at all of these aerobics classes and the Seoul Olympics and just take symbols from that,” said Mary Katrantzou at the launch party in London for her second capsule collection for Adidas Originals. “We started thinking about symbolism and how we can take that within the context of Adidas. But also the silhouettes — there are little tennis dresses and diving suits and track tops so I thought that was a fun spin on the idea of symbols.” The party took place on the rooftop of Snap Studios in East London, with totem poles made by Katrantzou and the prop designer Richard Storey and adorned with the designer’s prints.
Katrantzou used collages made from sports items including a stopwatch, a tennis racket and a badminton shuttlecock for the 24-piece collection. Pieces include a structured T-shirt adorned with patches and crystals, a reversible varsity jacket, a crepe tank dress, leggings, tracksuit bottoms, boyfriend T-shirts, boy shorts, jersey swimsuits and footwear. Katrantzou also put a holographic spin on footwear with bold patterns and floral jacquards.

Ruffian Designers to Launch New Line

RUFFIAN DUO TO DEBUT NEW LINE IN L.A.: Designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais are still in the honeymoon phase of their Los Angeles love affair. Inspired by their recent move from New York, the Ruffian designers will launch a new line called Wolk Morais on April 13, which marks the one-year anniversary of their arrival in Hollywood. Focused on the pre-seasons rather than spring and fall, the line will offer a dressier take that Wolk calls “luxury sportswear with evening elements” meant to be worn year-round. It will be shown in October and April annually. All pieces are sourced and produced in Los Angeles and will retail between $ 795 and $ 4995.
“When we moved here there was a dramatic climate change in our native New York and it gave us a new perspective on the way women dress. The pre-seasons make the most sense because they have the longest shelf life and been most financially successful for our retailers.”
The duo says they moved West to have creative freedom outside of the traditional New York fashion system, and showed Ruffian’s spring 2015 collection at Gavlak Gallery in Hollywood. This time, they’ll debut Wolk Morais at Kohn Gallery, fitting because it was

Adidas and Y-3 Launch Tennis Collection

PARIS — Adidas continues to fuse sports technology with fashion via a new collaboration between its tennis division and the Y-3 brand.
The collection, which includes a range of functional accessories such as socks and wristbands, alongside footwear as well as apparel, is already in stores and will make its sports debut at Roland Garros in May, where it will be worn by tennis players Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Ana Ivanovic, as well as the French tournament’s ball boys and girls.
Boasting Y-3’s bold aesthetic, the line integrates Adidas’ “coolmax technology for supreme ventilation and comfort,” along with its ultra-light adizero concept, developed for footwear and “designed to maximize clay court use,” the Herzogenaurach, Germany-based sporting goods maker assured.
While the apparel is kept in Yohji Yamamoto’s signature black-and-white palette, the accessories reference Y-3’s current spring collection in Hawaiian floral prints.
“We wanted to make something new, something exciting, something people didn’t expect. A new movement in tennis. To compete is very tough — with Y-3 we wanted to win,” Yamamoto explained.
