Georgina Chapman Steps Out in London a Month After Leaving Husband Harvey Weinstein

Georgina Chapman was spotted for the first time since separating from her husband Harvey Weinstein after dozens of sexual misconduct accusations.

The British fashion designer stepped out in London on Friday dressed in all black with a long coat, ankle length pants and loose sweater. She also kept clear of jewelry and wasn’t wearing her wedding ring after separating from Weinstein shortly after the first wave of accusations surfaced.

Sources previously told PEOPLE that Chapman is laying low as the scandal continues.

“Georgina’s plan is to keep staying low-key,” a source told PEOPLE. “She is focused on her children and her business. She doesn’t have any plans for public appearances.”

And while Chapman, 41, and Weinstein, 65, have been in contact to discuss their two children, the source said there is no hope of reconciliation between the two.

On Oct. 10, Chapman announced she was leaving Weinstein. In a statement to PEOPLE, she said, “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered.” She has since met with divorce lawyers.

“She is still shocked about all the women coming forward,” says the source. “She feels terrible. She is disgusted with Harvey and very angry.”

The Oscar-winning producer has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 50 women since The New York Times and The New Yorker documented decades of alleged sexual misconduct and sexual assault involving a number of women in detailed articles earlier this month.

A spokesperson for Weinstein previously told PEOPLE in a statement that “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.”

Karl Lagerfeld to Deck the Halls at Claridge’s in London

KRISTMAS KARL: Karl Lagerfeld is the latest creative type to design the Claridge’s Christmas tree, which will be unveiled in the hotel lobby on the morning of Nov. 22.
“Christmas trees are the strongest ‘souvenir’ of my happy childhood,” said Lagerfeld who was born in Hamburg, Germany.
This is the eighth year that Claridge’s has invited a designer to re-interpret the tree in their distinctive style, with past collaborators coming from a variety of creative industries.
Last year, Apple’s chief design officer Sir John Ive and Marc Newson — a designer who works across multiple disciplines, from furniture to aircraft and yachts — were tapped for the occasion.
The Claridge’s Christmas tree has become a holiday landmark in London, drawing large numbers of visitors.
In the past, tree designers have also included Alber Elbaz, John Galliano and Burberry’s Christopher Bailey, who adorned his tree with metallic umbrellas from top to bottom.

Princess Kate’s Uncle Gary Goldsmith Arrested for Assault in London

Kate Middleton‘s uncle, Gary Goldsmith, has been arrested for assault, police confirm to PEOPLE.

“Gary Goldsmith, 52, from Wimpole St., London was charged on Friday with assault by beating,” London police said in a statement. “This relates to an incident at the same address in the early hours on the same date. He was bailed to appear at Westminster magistrates court on October 31.”

Just a few hours before the alleged incident, Goldsmith posted a selfie with his wife Julie-Ann Goldsmith to his Twitter account.

Goldsmith attended both Princess Kate’s wedding to Prince William in 2011, as well as Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews in May of this year. He’s had a brush with scandal before, when, in 2009, photographs of him appearing to cut up cocaine were published in a tabloid, according to The Telegraph.

Kensington Palace declines to comment on Goldsmith’s arrest.

Coming Home: Manolo Blahnik Film Premieres at Curzon Cinema in London

MANOLO COMES HOME: After making its debut in New York, “Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards,” got its London premiere during fashion week on Monday night at the Curzon Bloomsbury cinema. Guests who numbered Blahnik, Charlotte Dellal, Stephen Jones, Isabeli Fontana, and Lulu Guinness, gathered to toast the celluloid love-letter to Blahnik and his life and work.
“His life is so filled with filmic moments, I’ve always thought his story would make for fascinating and entertaining cinema,” said Roberts – who wrote and directed the film.
For Blahnik, all the film’s praise – from Anna Wintour, John Galliano, Andre Leon Talley, Paloma Picasso, Naomi Campbell and Rihanna – made for some uncomfortable viewing. “I never believe anything like that – ‘You’re wonderful, You’re wonderful’ – it doesn’t touch me. I’m not very good with compliments and things like that,” admitted Blahnik after the screening.

Jones said his favorite moment was watching Blahnik and Galliano exchanging banter. “They both egg each other on to a place which should not be filmed,” said Jones with a smile. “But I love all of Blahnik’s funny little asides, and the arched eyebrows and the screams. Those were the best

Temperley London RTW Spring 2018

The bohemian, sunsets and summer parties-loving Alice Temperley tribe saw a poetic display of the designer’s ultra-feminine silhouettes and signature artisanal patterns. It’s true that at times this formula gets a too literal translation – although one that is never too hard to look at – but for spring, the designer gave her loyal followers something more grown-up, more thoughtful to live with.
The show opened with a halter-neck dress composed of more graphic folksy patterns. The early Fifties came to mind, perhaps set somewhere on a breezy island off the Mediterranean coast. There were no unnecessary frills or flounces, just a humble buttoned silhouette in blue, white and red with a matching head wrap.
The looks that followed, including breezy shirt and wrap dresses, were more elaborate in style, some boasting prints that harkened back to vintage pottery patterns from the Provence, but Temperley tamed them with little belts cinched tightly at the waist. No vertiginous heels here either, just a pair of flat-form knotted sandals to suit a woman who might be on vacation, but still has an agenda.
There was an interesting take on the pajama look, too, which comprised a wide-legged, cropped trouser and flow-y shirt-blazer, letting off a

Donald Robertson Celebrates New Book, “Donald”, in London

AMERICAN HUSTLE: “Somebody told me tonight that this book is just a very expensive business card,” joked Donald Robertson, signing copies of his book, “Donald – The Book,” at its launch at Maison Assouline on Piccadilly in London Friday night. “And it really is, it’s got all my stuff in it so I don’t even need to hustle [for work] so much anymore.”
Robertson — Estée Lauder’s creative director who is famous for his handpainted handbags and his Instagram account, Drawbertson, where he posts images of his fashion-centric artworks to over 190,000 followers — came to the book deal with Assouline through less-than orthodox means.
“I was at Bergdorf’s, standing there painting on bags, and I was, like, ‘I want a book cover; I want a book [deal]. I’m just going to paint on the Valentino book.’ So I just started painting on the covers, put my name on it, but it said Valentino on the side, so I put the hashtag, ‘Kiss My Assouline’. Totally without permission and I was selling them for about $ 2,800 on the shop floor.”
A phone call from Assouline founder Prosper Assouline followed. “I thought he was going to tell me to stop but he said, ‘Dude,

Prince Exhibition to Open in London

THE WORLD OF PRINCE: The belongings of pop star Prince will be the subject of a new exhibition, opening in London’s O2 arena in October.
From world-famous items such as the orange Cloud guitar from his Super Bowl halftime performance or the purple jacket and ruffled shirt from the “Purple Rain” tour to never-before-seen artifacts taken from Paisley Park, his estate outside Minneapolis, the exhibition will offer an intimate look into the legendary performer’s life.
Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, highlighted the Cloud guitar as one of the standout pieces in the collection. She told the British newspaper Evening Standard that “[even though] people always associate the color purple with Prince, his favorite color was actually orange.”
Nelson chose the British capital as the location for the first exhibition centered on her brother since it was the city that accepted the musician the most. He performed at the O2 arena for 21 consecutive nights in 2007. The exhibition, titled “My Name Is Prince” will run next to the same arena for 21 days.

Nars Teams With Refinery 29 on London Art Exhibition

POWER LAUNCH: Nars is taking a new, more modern approach to marketing its latest lip product, Powermatte Lip Pigment.
The cosmetics brand has teamed with the digital publishing platform Refinery 29 to host an art exhibition in London called “PowerMouth,” spotlighting the works of five female artists. The participating artists, which include Daantje Bons, Natalia Stuyk, Romily Alice, Shae DeTar and Vanessa Kisuule have explored ideas such as self-expression and power through a range of mediums, from photography to live installations and portraiture.
Some of the photography features close-ups of female lips, which fittingly highlight the new Nars lip range, while live installations range from poetry projections to “an interactive activity wall,” where guests are encouraged to leave their own message by kissing, drawing or writing on translucent colored sheets from the Powermatte palette.

London Fashion Week Men’s Spring 2018: Ones to Watch

Bodybound
Born and raised in London, Bodybound creative directors Kim Wilkins and Pliny Champion launched their label in 2012.
The duo met in college. Wilkins studied knitwear at Central Saint Martins and graduated in 2005, then moved on to study men’s wear at the Royal College of Art. He completed the program in 2009. Champion took a more varied route, going from studying biology to environmental public relations and photography. He ended up in fashion, graduating from Imperial College London. They have worked for labels including Alexander McQueen, Ermenegildo Zegna, Matthew Williamson, Halston and Mark Fast. The designers, who produce their collections between London and Bali, were selected by Yohji Yamamoto as finalists for the Hyères award in 2012.
Wilkins said their man is someone who “has an appreciation for subversion.” Champion added: “A little irreverence never did anyone any harm.
“We believe in challenging the relationship between utility and luxury,” Champion said. “We’re interested in the modern masculine aesthetic, and create innovative textiles and engineered knitwear for utilitarian silhouettes.”
Wilkins said the due is “always looking to challenge mediocrity. Everyone’s approach to design is unique, the collections reflect our interests. Our process is complicated, but the message is simple.”

‘Turn to Love’: People Post Signs of Unity at London Bridge After Deadly Terror Attack

Just hours after a terror attack in and around London Bridge killed seven and injured nearly 50 people, mourners descended on the famous structure to post messages of hope and optimism.

Video posted to Twitter showed people posting signs that stated #TurntoLove #ForLondon and #ISISwillLose #LoveWillWin at the London Bridge cordon Sunday morning.

The gesture came the morning after three attackers careened a white van into pedestrians on London Bridge, in the heart of the British capital, Sunday evening. The men then pulled knives and got out at the crowded area of Borough Market and attacked victims on the street and at pubs, Commissioner for the Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick, said in a statement.

The latest violence come less than two weeks after a deadly terror attack outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester killed 22 people plus the attacker, and injured approximately 116 — included children and parents waiting to pick up their kids from the concert.

The London attack occurred just one day before Grande and other stars will take the stage for the Manchester One Love benefit in Manchester, and the pop star’s manager Scooter Braun vowed that the show will go on despite the latest attack in London.

“After the events last night in London, and those in Manchester just two weeks ago, we feel a sense of responsibility to honor those lost, injured and affected,” Braun said in a statement on Twitter Sunday. “We plan to honor them with courage, bravery, and defiance in the face of fear. Today’s One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater purpose,” Scooter Braun wrote on Twitter Sunday morning.

Meanwhile, as the world reels from yet another tragedy, stories of ordinary citizens stepping up to help the victims have emerged.

Witnesses told of people throwing glasses, chairs and other objects at the attackers to fend them off as they stormed into a pub in Borough Market in central London, threatening to kill people during an eight minute rampage.

Others offered free places to stay or to arrange rides for people who were stranded after the attack, reports The Telegraph, noting that the response mirrors the outpouring of support after Manchester.

The Sun reports that Sainsburys, a popular supermarket chain, delivered sandwiches to emergency worker at London Bridge.

In a statement made outside Downing Street Sunday morning, Prime Minister Theresa May praised “the courage of members of the public who defended themselves and others from attackers.”

She also declared that “we cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are.”

Ariana Grande Shows Her Support For Victims Of London Attack

Ariana Grande showed her support for London on Saturday night after two possible terror attacks left at least six people dead in the city. 

The singer’s message, sent on Twitter, was simple: “Praying for London ♡” 

Police are investigating after suspects plowed a van into a group of pedestrians on the London Bridge, then fled the vehicle and began stabbing people in a restaurant at the nearby Borough Market. At least six people were killed in the attacks and at least 30 were hospitalized.

The violence in London struck less than two weeks after a deadly terrorist attack hit Manchester Arena, where Grande had just performed. A suspected suicide bomber detonated an explosive outside of the concert, killing 22 people ― many of whom were children. 

Grande tweeted shortly after the Manchester attack that she was “broken” over the violence that followed her concert.

“From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words,” she wrote.

The pop star announced days later that she would host a One Love Manchester benefit concert featuring an all-star lineup including herself, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Coldplay and Pharrell Williams. 

The concert sold out in less than six minutes. It is still scheduled to run at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday.

Azzedine Alaïa Set to Open Flagship in London

ALAÏA’S ARRIVAL: Designer Azzedine Alaïa is poised to open his first London flagship, at 139 New Bond Street, not far from Smythson, Belstaff, Ermenegildo Zegna and Delvaux, according to industry sources.
The store, former home of the vintage jeweler S.J. Phillips, will span 6,000 square feet over three floors, and is down the street from Chloé which, like Alaïa, is owned by Compagnie Financière Richemont. The Chloé store is set to open at 143 New Bond Street later this summer.
The building is owned by Trophaeum, the property owner and developer that’s been stocking nearby Albemarle Street, and other parts of Mayfair, with luxury brands, flagship stores and restaurants, including Amanda Wakeley, Aquazzura and Alexander Wang.
Alaïa is thought to be paying about 1,500 pounds, or $ 1,924, per square foot, according to sources.
Trophaeum has also recently signed with Thom Browne, Moncler and Casadei for stores in Mayfair. Casadei opened last November. On Albemarle Street, Trophaeum brought in the restaurant Isabel earlier this year, and has brokered a deal with Robin Birley, who will open a new private members club later this year.
Spokespeople for Trophaeum and Richemont declined to comment.
Alaïa has two stand-alone stores in Paris, and is stocked at a variety of retailers including Galeries Lafayette

NEW YORK — Charles S. Cohen is expanding his men’s fashion portfolio.
The billionaire commercial real estate developer who purchased a majority stake in Savile Row tailor Richard James in March, has now bought Harrys of London. Terms of the deal for the U.K.-based footwear and accessories label were not disclosed. Harrys was acquired from Palladin Consumer Retail Partners, a Boston-based private equity firm that has owned a majority stake in the brand since 2014.
Following the playbook he established with Richard James, Cohen will assume the position of chairman of Harrys but will retain Steven Newey, Harry’s chief executive officer, to run the business on a day-to-day basis. At Richard James, Sean Dixon, cofounder and managing director, has remained with the label in that role.
“Harrys of London has been a brand I have supported and respected for a long time, bringing a unique mix of luxury, contemporary craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology and design,” Cohen said in an exclusive interview. “I am excited to have this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to partner with the brand and work closely with Steven and the rest of the team.

London Sunday Times Publishes Rich List, With Brexit a Big Wealth Factor

THE WEALTH DIARIES: The 2017 Sunday Times of London Rich List is out, ranking British — and international — billionaires and millionaires whose wealth reflects the shape-shifting world economy over the past 12 months.
The 29th annual edition of the list includes Britain’s 1,000 richest people, and the compilers argue that many of the 134 billionaires were able to amass even more wealth from the “post-Brexit boom” last year, which fueled the stock market and pushed down the value of the pound. New money, they said, came mainly from the city of London, property and manufacturing.
“While many of us worried about the outcome of the EU referendum, many of Britain’s richest people just kept calm and carried on making billions,” said Robert Watts, who compiled the list.
A sidebar to the main story is the International Rich List, which is even more interesting than the British one. At number one is the Walton family, owners of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., whose net worth is estimated to be 100.6 billion pounds, or $ 136.82 billion; at number four is Inditex owner Amancio Ortega, with a fortune of 63.5 billion pounds, or $ 86.36 billion; while at number 12, there’s Bernard Arnault, whose net worth is calculated to be 35.2

‘Hot Convict’ Jeremy Meeks Deported From London

The American lawbreaker who became a viral internet sensation as the “hot convict” because of his visually arresting mugshot won’t get a chance to show England he’s become a model citizen.

Jeremy Meeks, 33, now a fashion model who had traveled to London for a photo shoot, was deported Monday night from Heathrow Airport because of his previous criminal record, according to the Daily Mail.

“I’ve been denied,” Meeks said as he walked through the airport, according to “Inside Edition.” “London don’t want me here. I done served my time. S*** is crazy. Don’t make no sense.”

Meeks, became known as the “hot convict” in June 2014 after the Stockton Police Department in California arrested him on weapons and gang charges, and his mugshot went viral. He spent two years behind bars, and was freed in March 2016. 

The “hot con” has been working as a fashion model since February. But he never got beyond the airport for his London assignment.

Meeks’ manager, Joe Jordan, said his client’s paperwork to enter the U.K. was in order. Meeks also had a letter from his parole officer giving him permission to travel, according to the New York Daily News.

None of that held any sway with U.K. immigration officials, who escorted him onto a plane eight hours after he landed in London.

Jordan told the Daily Mail he hopes Meeks’ visa problem is temporary.

“He was on the right track for what we feel was going to be his new life. Now he’s very sad,” Jordan said. “Hopefully this is just a setback and he will be able to come back from this.”

Christopher Kane Cuts Ribbon on Bond Street Pop-Up in London

ROCKING OUT: “Surreal” was the adjective Christopher Kane chose to describe the opening of his first shop on Bond Street, a pop-up that will remain in place until the end of the year.
“I grew up knowing this street, seeing all the big brands on it. I’ve had to pinch myself now that I’m here. It feels very strange – but brilliant,” said Kane during an opening party in London on Wednesday night.
As reported, the space at 15 Old Bond Street is stocking key show and commercial ready-to-wear and accessories, and will also offer exclusive pieces made for the store. Kane’s flagship on Mount Street remains open.
Kane said he likes the idea of being able “to meet and greet” potential new customers in the Bond Street space, which has in the past been home to fellow Kering brand Bottega Veneta, and to Tod’s.
He was chatting in front of a display of marbled-surface Crocs studded with chunky, colored or sparkling rocks, some natural, others lab-grown. All of them would have made Pebbles Flintstone swoon.

“With traditional events such as those of the British ‘season’ — and those further afield — it’s important to know that you’re dressed impeccably to have the best experience. I wanted to create a contemporary but luxurious guide to getting it right and feeling connected with local culture wherever you have traveled from,” she said.
Sargent has dressed a range of figures from royals and politicians to celebrities such as David Beckham. She honed her skills for 15 years working her way up the ranks at Gieves & Hawkes before launching her eponymous bespoke label in 2012. Sargent was also the first woman to become a head cutter in 2009 and broke the British tailoring mold last spring as the first female to set up shop on London’s Savile Row, where she now has two stores.

Florida Woman Took Photo with Slain Police Officer Just Minutes Before He Died in London Attack

A Florida mother vacationing in London snapped a picture with police officer Keith Palmer just minutes before he was killed in Wednesday’s terror attack on Parliament.

Staci Martin said she was visiting London for the first time over spring break when she stumbled upon the 48-year-old officer wearing a “funny hat,” she told WPTV.

“I see his hat and I’m like, ‘I have to take a picture of him with his hat,” she told the station, noting that the attacks occurred less than an hour after the photo was taken. “We got in an Uber not even 15 seconds later, we turned to the corner and this guy came up to the window and was like, ‘there was a shooting, there was a shooting.”

Palmer was among four victims killed in the deadly car and knife attack outside U.K. Parliament. The assailant — identified by Scotland Yard as U.K. native Khalid Masood — careened through the area at about 2:40 p.m. local time, hitting dozens of pedestrians before crashing into the gate outside the Palace of Westminster.

He got out of the vehicle and stabbed Palmer before being killed by guards, authorities said. Scotland Yard is calling the incident terrorism.

Martin said she saw Palmer’s picture in media after the attack and couldn’t believe her eyes.

“They put his picture up and I said, ‘I think that’s the guy’ and my husband and daughter thought I was crazy,” she told WPTV. “We just couldn’t believe it.”

In the photo, Martin is shown smiling wide while Palmer, who appeared to be on duty at the time, gave a small smirk.

She wrote of the photo in a Facebook post, according to WFTS.

“At 1:52 p.m., we were walking passed Parliament and I saw an officer. I liked his funny hat so I asked him if we could take a picture … He was very polite,” she wrote.

“At 2:40 he was fatally stabbed by the terrorist and died leaving behind a wife and children.”

Prime Minister May said the attacker was British-born and known to authorities, the Associated Press reports.

In the wake of the incident, authorities arrested eight people in raids around Britain, according to CNN. Their connection to the attack was not immediately clear.

Martin told WFTS that she is shocked by the timing of the events.

“You think if I had only been there a half an hour later in the exact spot,” she said. “You can call it God or fate or whatever you want to call it, it’s a little bit surreal for sure.”

British Royal Family Members Attend War Memorial Unveiling in London

WAR MEMORIAL: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince Harry, Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Charles at the unveiling ceremony of the Iraq and Afghanistan War Memorial in London on Thursday.
The memorial, a sculpture at Victoria Embankment Gardens, near the Thames, honors the soldiers who served Britain during the Gulf War and the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Guests at the service that followed at Horse Guards Parade included senior members of government, military veterans and their families, politicians and civil servants.
The Iraq and Afghanistan Memorial was created by the sculptor Paul Day and designed with two copper medallions — representing Iraq and Afghanistan — which sit in the middle of two large stones.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore an indigo twill swing coat from Michael Kors Collection and a navy hat. A fan of recycling her outfits, she had already donned the coat for a visit to the Anzac Day ceremonies during the royal tour in Australia in 2014.

Chalayan Comes Home to London

CHANNEL HOP: London Fashion Week isn’t just a hotbed of emerging talent. Established designers have their place, too. After 16 years of showing his women’s wear collections in Paris, London-based Hussein Chalayan returned to London to show his Chalayan fall 2017 collection on Saturday.
After the show, which he presented at Sadler’s Wells Theater (a venue he’s used in the past, and the site of a collaboration with a contemporary dance company last year) Chalayan laid out his reasons for coming back.
“We left London, as we felt we were making this very big effort…but a lot of people weren’t coming to London at that time. And we felt for business we had to go to Paris – and when we moved to Paris our business grew considerably,” he said. “These days it’s different. You have to remember that digital media, the whole thing, was not as developed as it is now – it was a different life.”
Chalayan also showed his first men’s runway collection in January during London Fashion Week Men’s. And in 2015, the designer debuted a sleek store on Mayfair’s Bourdon Street. Asked whether he’ll continue to show his women’s collection in London, the designer was noncommittal.

British Designer Gareth Pugh Releases Short Film Ahead of London Fashion Week

CINEMATIC TEASER: British designer Gareth Pugh has released a cinematic teaser ahead of his fall show, which takes place during London Fashion Week. Pugh will stage a runway show at 8 p.m. in Collins Music Hall in Islington Green on Feb 18.
Filmed in black and white, the production was directed by Ruth Hogben and Andrea Gelardin, who worked with creative consultant Carson McColl.
The film — which runs in under three minutes — opens up to a phrase from William Shakespeare’s King Lear, “‘Tis the time’s plague when madmen lead the blind.” The movie features Latin American singer and songwriter Rebekah Del Rio singing “Llorando,” a Spanish-version of Roy Orbison’s “Crying” in a cappella. The “Mulholland Drive” star — wearing a fur coat — is pictured performing outdoors at an apartment complex.
Pugh said the moment was as “an iconic visual conceit, and a fitting metaphor for truth in a post-truth arena and a vision of a world on the precipice of anarchy.”
No stranger to a theatrical display, the designer’s spring show held last September took a cue from the opera. In addition, the designer unveiled more than 60 costumes on the stage of Palais Garnier in Paris.

Matchless London, Schwarzenegger Create Limited-Edition Men’s Collection

“I’LL BE BACK”: Matchless London is collaborating with Arnold Schwarzenegger on a limited-edition collection of three men’s wear staples, all made in Italy.
“Having worked closely with Arnold for ‘The Terminator’ movie, it is with enormous pride and satisfaction that yet again Matchless London, with its timeless style and quality, have teamed up with such an action hero and jointly created this exciting new part of our collection,” said Michele Malenotti, managing director of Matchless London.  The project will support Schwarzenegger’s charity foundation, After-School All-Stars.
Winking to Schwarzenegger’s action hero roles, the Iron Bomber is realized in Matchless antique black leather, using an exclusive Riri Swiss handmade zip for the front and pockets. The back is emblazoned with the U.S. flag with a vintage effect. The inside label is signed by the actor.

The cowboy blazer in tanned leather has a back half belt, shaped buttoned pockets and a detachable shearling waistcoat.

Thom Browne to Open First Store in London

OPENING ON ALBERMARLE: Thom Browne has set its sights across the pond with plans to open a store in London, the brand confirmed Friday.
The American label chose to set up its first shop in Mayfair on Albemarle Street. The road is host to a number of designers, including Amanda Wakeley, Asprey and Paul Smith, as well as art galleries such as Connaught Brown, Marlborough Fine Art and Mazzoleni Art.
The brand could not comment further on the details of the store.
The New York-based designer, who was awarded the CDFA men’s wear designer award last year, is the latest fashion company to sign on with Tropheaum, a property firm that oversees Albemarle Street. Other brands that have launched stores in the U.K. through the company include Casadei, Aquazzura and Alexander Wang.
The opening of the London store is the first major expansion move by the company since Sandbridge Capital acquired a majority stake in Thom Browne last May from Japan’s Stripe International. Stripe retains a minority stake. Sandbridge’s other investments include stakes in Derek Lam, Tamara Mellon, Farfetch, Rossignol, Topshop and Karl Lagerfeld.
Since founding his men’s business in 2001, Browne has become known as one of the most directional designers in American fashion in both men’s

London Radio Station Quizzes Ryan Gosling On Musicals And Things Didn’t Go So Well

Well, this interview probably didn’t go according to plan.

Ryan Gosling sat down with London’s Magic Radio to promote his award-winning movie musical, “La La Land,” and proceeded to fail a quiz based on the film genre.

Among other things, the actor said he’s never seen “West Side Story,” and he guessed that lyrics from “The Sound of Music” were from “Mary Poppins.” 

In fairness, both movies starred Julie Andrews. Still … come on, now.

”So this is basically an intervention,” Gosling joked at the end of the quiz. “It’s a musical intervention. And I needed it.”

In case Gosling wants to dive into the genre, he can check out the American Film Institute’s list of the “Greatest Movie Musicals Of All Time.” Since the actor said he’s already seen “Singin’ in the Rain,” he can start with film No. 2 on the list, which is, coincidentally, “West Side Story.”

Co-star Emma Stone, on the other hand, fared much better on the impromptu quiz.

Check out the interview in the video above.

Margaret Howell Offers Men’s Wear Taster in London

A LOOK IN: Margaret Howell, who plans to show a few pieces at Pitti Uomo in Florence this week, gave a taste of her men’s collection during the London men’s shows.
The fall lineup was packed with her signature sturdy, luxe fabrics and chic, classic shapes including a black boxy work wear style jacket paired with an army green shirt and dark twill trousers.
There were army trousers, rolled at the ankle and brown corduroys, too, styled with chunky sweater vests or Breton knits.
There was a heavy pea coat made with wool from Britain’s Fox Brothers and a hand-knitted crewneck sweater in three-ply wool by one of Howell’s longtime fashion collaborators, Marion Foale, and heavy button-front shirts – gingham and otherwise – made in the brand’s north London factory.
An array of tweed jackets, sweaters and trousers came in an earthy palette of mustard, gray, rust, khaki, olive and navy.
The full men’s collection will show alongside women’s wear for the first time at a co-ed show during London Fashion Week in February.

Tinie Tempah Launches Ath-leisure Range in London

TINIE’S TIME: For the debut of his label, What We Wear, Tinie Tempah looked to the British capital and youth culture for inspiration. The 28-year-old musician staged a runway show held at the British Fashion Council Show Space on Saturday, where models walked as an orchestra played classical tunes.
“I’m here to try and introduce something that is here to stay and is long-lasting,” said Tempah. “And that doesn’t just appeal to men but it can also appeal to women. I don’t see why it can’t be for everybody.”
He describes his wearer as an everyday modern man and said the aesthetic of the label takes its cue from his own style. “It is a mix of the two,” said Tempah. “I definitely dress in young street wear kind of way – very high-end though. Now, I just want to wear my own stuff. My personal tastes go from vintage or high-street to expensive elaborate one-off pieces. But for me, the things I always cherish are the most simplistic things that last the longest and don’t necessarily have to be the most expensive.”
Tempah said his range will be sold at an accessible price point. “We’ve made it very much an essentials range with

New Faces of Streetwear From London

London is known for its streetwear scene, composed of a mash-up of subcultures including hip-hop, skateboarding and surfing. The popularity of the urban market has grown recently with obscure labels becoming more mainstream and newer brands launching. Here are a few designers on the rise who are getting set to present their collections during London Fashion Week Men’s.
A-Cold-Wall
Samuel Ross named his label A-Cold-Wall as a nod to Britain’s melting pot culture. “The inspiration behind the name came from the familiarity of environments,” the designer said. “Multiple class systems interact, with the people overlapping and integrating.”
Calling London a “mishmash of high/low property piled on top of each other” with its “distant relationships of working class and upper middle class areas,” these influences appear in A-Cold-Wall’s deconstructed workwear that includes oversize scarves used as a utility holster — a bestseller.
The 25-year-old Ross — who launched his label in 2015 — was born and raised in South West London and studied graphic design and contemporary Illustration at DeMontfort University in Leicester.
Before delving into fashion, he worked on graphic and product design at Imperial Design GB and Story Worldwide and dabbled in homewares, commercial buildouts and advertising campaigns. He also worked as a street artist and

Carolina Herrera to Start Selling Bridal in London at Moda Operandi

For the first time, Carolina Herrera will be selling her wedding gowns in the U.K. through a new partnership with Moda Operandi.
From Nov. 25 to 28, a Carolina Herrera Bridal trunk show will be held at Moda Operandi’s London store in Belgravia. Shoppers will be the first to pre-order gowns from the fall 2016 collection. The alliance is in step with the American designer company’s focus on expanded global distribution. The three-day event will mark the first time Moda Operandi has gotten into bridal in such a major way.
Brides-to-be will find fluid silhouettes with embellished intricate lace scallop necklines and a bodice that appears to have a panted motif due to crystals and hand-placed lace on organza. Other styles feature chantilly and guipure lace appliqués on tulle, and sheer layers and pleats. For fall, there is also a palette of blush tones and nudes.
Since she launched her bridal collection in 1987, Herrera has dressed a range of well-known brides including, recently, model Hilary Rhoda, who wed former New York Ranger Sean Avery last month. Olivia Palermo wore a Carolina Herrera ensemble for her wedding last year. Many fans of the designer know her wedding gowns from Kristin Stewart’s “Bella Swan”

Tom Ford to Stage Show During London Collections: Men

FORD FORGES AHEAD: Tom Ford will unveil his fall 2016 men’s collection at London Collections: Men in January for the first time in a show format.
Ford, who usually holds appointments in his studio for press and buyers to view his men’s collections, has a provisional slot on the calendar for Jan. 11 at 6:30 p.m., and the British Fashion Council is set to confirm the final schedule on Dec. 7.
According to a Ford spokeswoman, a decision on how the collection will be presented has not been made at this time.
Ford, who did not stage a runway show or presentation for his women’s spring 2016 collection, took it to the small screen last month with a  video shot by Nick Knight that featured Lady Gaga.
Ford is working on his second film, “Nocturnal Animals,” an adaptation of the 1993 novel “Tony and Susan” by Austin Wright starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal. The movie is due for release next year.

Frieze London Sees Strong Sales, So Far, in an Uneasy Economic Climate

ARTFUL DODGING: Frieze Art, the London contemporary art fair, wrapped up Saturday with sold-out stands and no hint — yet — of cash-strapped collectors or repercussions from the economic slowdown in China. In the third quarter, the country notched its slowest growth in six years.
“A lot of our galleries are experiencing their best Frieze ever,” said Abby Bangster, the artistic director for Frieze Americas and Asia. “I’ve spoken to the galleries that are based in China and are here, and they have completely sold out. It’s not just Chinese buying Chinese, they have big London and American buyers. We also have a good number of Chinese collectors. We so far have not been impacted, but it is certainly something that we’re watching.”
The 13th edition of the four-day fair, held at Regent’s Park in London, saw 164 galleries from 27 countries take part. Galleries showcased works by artists including Camille Henrot; Mary Weatherford; Gabriel Orozco; Abraham Cruzvillegas, and Jimmie Durham.
While Frieze did not disclose the total amount of sales at the fair, it did release some figures from individual galleries. White Cube sold a painting by Damien Hirst for 750,000 pounds, or $ 1.16 million, while a work by Gabriel Orozco sold for $ 900,000 at Kurimanzutto. An oil painting by Chris Ofili

INDIXIA Launches in New York, Hong Kong and London to Follow

ALL IN FOR INDIA: The first New York installment of INDIXIA has launched to help underprivileged children in India who are interested in getting a higher education in fashion, design or cinema.

Pooling international supporters who specialize in fine art, design, fashion. cinema and philanthropy, INDIXIA supports Arts For India, the charity was started by Satish Modi in the U.K. in 2010. The agency receives educational support by the University of the Arts London and the Prince’s Drawing School, London. Through Arts for India’s four-year scholarship program, a donor sponsors one needy student artist at the International Institute of Fine Arts. Each year 100 underprivileged students benefit from the program.

Aiming to help as many impoverished Indian students as possible, Modi said, “By giving them the opportunity to study, they, especially women, can escape arranged marriages. With education, they are then able to make informed choices in their lives and have a much better chance and brighter future.”

Charlotte Dellal Hosts ‘Wild’ Dinner in London

LONDON – “I wanted everything to be leopard, even the guests, which is why we had a strict ‘leopard’ dress code,” said Charlotte Olympia designer Charlotte Dellal at the dinner she hosted to preview her spring-summer 2016 collection. However, not everyone observed the mandate: Dellal’s brother, Alexander, was shamefully leopard-free. But the shoe designer soon solved that: “I cut a corner from a table cloth to make him a pocket square.”
“It’s like being in the most glamorous safari tent in the world,” summed up furniture and interior designer Francis Sultana. The walls and ceiling of the private room at Daphne’s restaurant in South Kensington had been festooned with custom-printed fabric in the Charlotte Olympia signature leopard spots, which matched the tablecloths and seat cushions.
After dinner, bingo cards printed with shoes and bags from the new collection were handed out with gold bingo markers, and presenter George Lamb ran a semi-legit bingo game, with three big toy leopards as the prizes. Derek Blasberg won the first round of the game but donated his trophy to Arizona Muse.
“That’s probably the nicest thing Derek’s ever done,” said the London-based model. “I’m going to pop it in my son’s bedroom tonight so he wakes

Louis Vuitton Christens ‘Series 3’ Expo in London

LONDON — The modern fashion show is entertaining and glamorous, but over in roughly 12 minutes flat.
Louis Vuitton’s “Series 3” exhibition that opens to the public at 180 Strand here on Monday is designed to decrypt the spectacle, and exalt all the craft and creativity that goes into it.
“Fashion is a circus. There’s very little discussion about the content. But you have to go into the before, the during and the after. And if you do it in an appropriate way, it’s unforgettable,” Michael Burke, chairman and chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton, said during a walkthrough of the sprawling, high-tech showcase. “We’re experimenting with how to make you feel the show more intensely than being at the show.”
The show in question is Nicolas Ghesquière’s fall collection, paraded in a series of geodesic domes erected at the foot of the Frank Gehry-designed Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris in March. A skeletal example of one dome lords over the ceiling of the darkened room that opens the exhibition, cuing the midcentury period that the French designer frequently mines. Visitors then traverse a futuristic tunnel that plunges them into the exhibition.

Minnie Mouse Style Exhibition Lands in London

MOUSE IN THE HOUSE: Challenging the notion that the fashion world takes itself too seriously is the “Minnie: Style Icon” exhibition at Blacks Members Club. Walt Disney’s Minnie Mouse was a fashionista from the outset after all: SHE made her debut alongside Mickey in a 1928 animation based on the Twenties flapper as portrayed by actress Colleen Moore, and her signature polka dot skirt was inspired by Coco Chanel’s Easy Jersey collection.
The show, a partnership between Disney and the British Fashion Council, explores the character of the world’s most stylish mouse and her influence on fashion and pop culture via archive imagery, sketches, celebrity portraits and fashion spreads. It also showcases exclusive photography by model Georgia May Jagger.
Highlights include Herb Ritts’ 1987 shot of Madonna sporting a pair of mouse ears in her Tokyo hotel room; a similarly accessorized Chanel Iman on the back of an elephant for Vogue Germany; and pictures from earlier this year of British fashion designer Ashley William’s Minnie Style collection for Dazed magazine starring Georgia May Jagger – not to mention Jagger’s own snaps of Minnie in a domestic setting. “I’m really excited to be including my own photographic work, interpreting Minnie’s style and making

London Designer Katie Eary Teams With KFC on Capsule Collection

PLAYING CHICKEN: KFC has recruited edgy London men’s wear designer Katie Eary in its mission to demonstrate how much can be done in a lunch hour.
As part of the fast food brand’s #PackMoreIntoLunch campaign, KFC challenged Eary to create a capsule women’s wear collection for spring 2016 in 60 minutes.
On the day of the challenge, 25 machinists sewed like crazy to create 13 looks, worn by 10 models in a catwalk show at the Old Truman Brewery in London.
The collection, like the playful and irreverent men’s wear Eary is known for, was brightly colored, with a palette rooted in fluorescent orange and green.
Butterflies were the print motif, superimposed over hypersized KFC chickens — it shouldn’t have worked but it did. Floaty silk chiffon minidresses and cropped tops came with a lovely ostrich feather trim in neon green.
A red bias-cut slipdress that reached just above the ankles managed to be sexy and sophisticated, while the twist-front swimsuits had definite commercial appeal.
Of course, some preparations had been made. The collection had been finalized two weeks before: All the patterns had been made, and almost everything had been pre-cut for the 60-minute sew-a-thon.
There was a rawness to some looks that probably wasn’t intentional,

Annette Worsley-Taylor, Former Creative Director of London Fashion Week, Dies at 71

LONDON — Annette Worsley-Taylor, a former creative director of London Fashion Week who helped reignite global interest in British fashion, died this week at the age of 71. The cause of her death was lung cancer, a British Fashion Council spokesman said.
Worsley-Taylor was a driving force in establishing London Fashion Week. After launching the New Wave exhibition at London’s Ritz Hotel in 1974, in order to introduce young British designers to the international market, she went on to found London Designer Collections in 1975. After establishing the collections, the executive went on to win funding from the British government’s Department of Trade and Industry, to support a newly formed British Fashion Council. After that, Worsley-Taylor established the London Designer Show in 1990, which the BFC called a “prototype” for London Fashion Week in its current form.
A combination of the seemingly scatty yet surprisingly steely, the tireless Worsley-Taylor was an integral part of the renaissance of London fashion in the early Eighties when the likes of BodyMap, Katharine Hamnett, Betty Jackson and, later, Rifat Özbek and John Galliano put the British capital back on the global fashion map as their shows became must-sees for international retailers. She remained a champion of

London: Churchill’s Tailor

2015-08-27-1440684310-3921218-P2.jpg

Winston Churchill had a very hard time holding onto money, throughout his life, yet he wore bespoke…well, everything. Henry Poole & Co. was not Churchill’s first bespoke tailor but it was his longest-lasting tailoring relationship. Henry Poole himself was long gone even by the time Churchill arrived, but Poole’s descendants continue to ply his elegant trade very close by to the family’s pioneering original location on Savile Row. I decided to pay them a visit.

I entered through the doors at Number 15 and waited. A very young Russian dandy was analyzing pocket square options (as near as I could decipher) in Russian with his girl friend. Their purchase finally made, the couple exited and the gentleman who had been attending to them, Sales Manager Anthony Rowland, pivoted to greet me.

I had a very cordial time working with the current Chairman of Poole & Co., Mr. Angus Cundey, putting together my book, CHURCHILL STYLE. Mr. Cundey was most forthcoming with facts and photos, including shots of Poole’s original, handwritten, account ledger pages for Winston Churchill going back to 1905. I could see those ledger books now spread out on a table in anticipation of my arrival. I gravitated to them.

“Mr. Cundey is here and expecting you,” Anthony Rowland informed me. “But he is engaged at the moment and, with apologies, asks that you wait.”

Gladly.

The ledger books make for great reading. Not only is the calligraphic script entrancing, Churchill’s life is spelled out in the margins. His wedding suit appears on the 1908 page. The ascendances (and descendances) of his career are all accounted for in the scrawled titles of his ever-shifting cabinet posts, as are his address changes, from his first bachelor flat at 105 Mount Street.

“He really was quite slim when we first got hold of him,” Anthony Rowland pointed out.

Churchill probably saw Mr. Cundey’s grandfather the first time he came in. We had over three hundred tailors back then, with fourteen cutters on the premises. If you can imagine, from the end of what is now Abercrombie & Fitch — which would have been the western branch of the Bank of England back then — Henry Poole occupied Numbers 36, 37, 38 and 39 along Savile Row. It was a massive enterprise and one big part of it was the livery department, where customers often spent far more outfitting their servants than they spent on themselves. The rest were workrooms and the showroom, which was a very grand, opulent place with pink marble columns and gilt ceilings.

I knew that Henry Poole, in 1848, had knocked down the stable block at the back of his 4 Burlington Street premises and built a new showroom fronting on Savile Row, where his rear staff entrance had been. He thus became Savile Row’s first tailoring establishment.

“The building next door was hit by an incendiary device during the Blitz,” Anthony Rowland now told me. “We had an oil drum on our roof that came alight. It ended up with the fire brigade hosing everything down. These ledgers were all tightly packed in the basement. The water found its way down there but the ledgers survived with just the outer parts damaged.”

“Henry Poole, when he took over from his father, James Poole, in 1846, threw out forty years-worth of ledgers,” Mr. Rowland laughed.

Lord knows whose names were in those! Louis Napoleon III was Henry’s first big royal customer; five years later, the Prince of Wales, soon to be Edward VII, came aboard. Both men became friends of Henry Poole’s. Henry was a masterful networker and marketer, for his day. He moved in all the right circles. That’s how we come to have forty different royal warrants from around the world; a world’s record, I believe. The couple I just had in here from Russia, I was showing them the royal warrants of Tsars Alexander II and III.

In 1961, Henry Poole & Co. was forced out of its venerable premises on Savile Row by the Westminster Council. “They basically took the property, compulsorily purchased it and tore down our grand showroom for a car park,” Mr. Rowland observed grimly.

We didn’t return to the Row for twenty years, until 1982, when Mr. Cundey brought us back. Unfortunately, Savile Row today is again changing very rapidly. Big businesses that can afford big rents are coming in and pushing out the bespoke showrooms. The Council doesn’t seem to care. They don’t seem to appreciate history or heritage. They will once it’s gone. Thankfully, we do still have the ledgers.

Henry Poole died in 1876. He left behind quite a mess; a morass of debts and a tangled will. His cousin Samuel Cundey had worked beside Henry for years. It was Cundey’s son, Howard, who rescued the business. Howard Cundey’s sons, Sam and Hugh, then navigated the company through the war, it’s aftermath, and the 1961 exile. Now Sam’s son, Angus, who brought Poole & Co. back to Savile Row, and Angus’s young son, Simon, maintain the present and point the way toward the future.

I looked up to see silver-haired, 78-year-old Angus Cundey approaching from the rear of the showroom, resplendent in a blue pinstripe suit.

“So, you want to talk about Winston Churchill,” he smiled, dropping down into a chair beside me.

Well, you know he first came to us in 1905, when he bought a vast quantity of clothes that we finally delivered to him in 1906. And that’s how it went for a very long time; quite large quantities. We made his overcoats, we made all sorts of elaborate court dress for him. The one garment that he particularly loved was the Trinity House uniform, which is today on display at Chartwell.

“I’ll tell you something sad,” Angus Cundey went on, after a moment.

Churchill’s orders with us went lower and lower following the Wall Street Crash. He must have gotten very depressed because he no longer came in to see us, he would summon a cutter down to Chartwell. And my father told me that the cutter always returned quite cross because Mr. Winston Churchill would keep him waiting for at least an hour. Then, to make matters worse, he stopped paying his bills. By 1937, he owed us about 160 pounds. This upset my father very much. Finally, in 1940, on the very day that Churchill became Prime Minister, our accounts clerk sent a bill to 10 Downing Street. That was a wicked thing to do. What happened to the accounts clerk, I can’t say, but to my father’s dying day, he rued the loss of Winston Churchill, who we’d clothed for the whole of his life. Sir Winston did eventually pay the bill, but he never came to see us again.

Anthony Rowland had brought out a strikingly familiar-looking grey pinstripe suit.

“This is a suit of Churchill’s that we still make today,” Angus Cundey beamed. “We call it our Churchill and it is a perfect copy of one we used to make for him. I’d say we’ve sold about a hundred of them over the years. This is the Churchill style.”

“In Churchill’s day, the suits were much heavier; made from an 18-ounce flannel,” Anthony Rowland added:

Whereas this one is really a 10. We’ve otherwise tried to maintain the identical marbled grey affect, with the same pinstripe going through it. It is a three button coat with a waistcoat. The blue lining is more our artistic license; it probably would have been grey for Churchill, maybe even a black. The trousers are cut for braces and there is a button fly. Zips didn’t really come in until after the war.

And how much does it cost, I asked, indiscreetly?

“About £3,515,” Angus Cundey answered. “Back in 1939, it probably cost the same in equivalent value. Still, I am the first to admit these are extravagant prices. But you must realize, a cutter makes every bit of it by hand, from the stitches to the button holes. And its all done right here.”

London: Churchill’s Bedroom

2015-08-24-1440436151-1662974-ChurchillWarRooms.jpg

I am in London. I have come largely on Churchill business. My daughters, Lea and Sara, are with me, sharing the singular pleasures that are to be savored seeing London through a Churchillian prism — as well as other fun stuff.

Touring The Churchill War Rooms with Phil Reed as our guide was one such pleasure. Built in 1939 as the Cabinet War Rooms, the complex comprises the bunker built beneath Whitehall for Churchill and his cabinet to hunker down in. The War Rooms today are one of London’s top tourist attractions (by crowd numbers, I am told). Phil Reed is the longtime director, as well as the driving force behind the terrific Churchill Museum added on in 2005.

The War Rooms were hastily completed some few days before England declared war on Germany. Though never quite so bomb-proof as advertised, they certainly constituted ground zero for Britain’s wartime braintrust during the Blitz. Churchill slept here, but only for a sum total of three nights. He detested being underground when all the action was upstairs. Today, his eloquently ascetic little bedroom appears just as it was, right down to the thin, green, bedspread and the bedpan on the floor below it. The BBC radio microphone on the desk nearby saw more use ultimately than the bed; Churchill delivered four broadcast addresses from this bedroom.

With characteristic elan, Phil invited Lea and Sara to freely explore Churchill’s boudoir. He let them sit at Churchill’s desk and deliver their own orations into the microphone. He also asked them not to sit on the bed.

My girls were, of course, enthralled by this very tactile proximity to history. Phil next marched us to the Map Room. There, the pins marking the courses of fighter planes in the air and ships at sea remain precisely as they were at war’s end when the War Rooms were victoriously abandoned on August 16, 1945, to be reopened and restored as a museum in 1984. Sara lifted the receivers on a few of the many colored phones and was astonished by their heft. Lea marveled at a single lump of sugar in an open ration packet on the table beside one of the officer mannequins. The lump and packet actually had been left behind on this table, Phil informed us, and have resided there ever since.

We now followed Phil to the Cabinet Room itself. We watched him unlock the door.

“This is the room from which I will direct the war,” Churchill had intoned upon seeing the place for the first time in May 1940. His War Cabinet would meet here 115 times, usually as bombs fell overhead.

The cramped, squarish maze of baize-covered tables appeared as undisturbed as that sugar lump.

“Go sit in the big chair,” Phil said to Lea and Sara (and to me). “Churchill’s chair.

“Grip the ends of the armrests,” Phil instructed. Lea did.

“They’re all cut up,” Lea gasped.

“That side is gouged from Churchill’s finger nails,” Phil explained. “The other, with the deeper cuts, those are from his ring.”

Nothing could better bring home the enormity of Churchill’s task and the fearful power of that room. We all gaped.

London Gallery to Mount Elizabeth Taylor Exhibition

GETTY’S GLAM GIRL: Getty Images Gallery will mount a retrospective on Elizabeth Taylor and her fight to stamp out HIV and AIDS. Staged in connection with the Elizabeth Taylor Trust and The Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation, “Grit and Glamour” is to commemorate Taylor’s 30-year involvement in raising awareness about the illness. “Grit and Glamour” will feature 50 photographs ranging from studio portraits and contact sheets to backstage images, behind-the-scenes imagery and unpublished photos of Taylor’s career and philanthropic work.
“The aim of the exhibition was to celebrate Ms. Taylor’s courageous work in raising awareness of HIV/AIDS when it was hardly spoken about, and the title reflects this,” said Getty Images Gallery curator Susanna Harrison. “We wanted the images to reflect her incredible spirit and determination, whilst at the same time showcasing her legendary beauty and rise to become one of Hollywood’s best-loved actresses. Images range from her days as a teenage star and attending her first gala events right up to establishing her AIDS foundation. They show her as a wife, mother and actress with both candid shots and classic portraits,” she told WWD.
The show is to run from Oct. 9 to Nov. 7 at Getty Images Gallery in London. It will then

Victoria and Albert Museum to Host Fashion Installations During London Design Festival

DESIGNS ON LONDON: The London Design Festival will have a distinct fashion flavor, with names including Swarovski, Selfridges and Kvadrat taking part in the September showcase.
Swarovski has teamed with designer Kim Thomé on an installation called “Zotem,” which is meant to be a fusion of “totem” and “zoetrope.” The 59-foot tall monolith was created with more than 600 bespoke Swarovski crystals and will stand at the entrance of the V&A Museum. The Swarovski crystals are presented in a gridlike pattern within a matte black aluminum frame.
RELATED STORY: Swarovski’s Fashion Element >>
“The only brief I was given was that I was to use Swarovski crystals and that it would be situated in the Grand Entrance of the V&A — which was enough for me to work with,” Thomé  told WWD. “As I had no preconceived idea of what I was going to do when I was first given some sample Swarovski crystals, the project was really led by what I learnt by experimenting with the crystals and exploring the how they could be experienced differently.”
He said the inspiration behind Zotem was a response to the interior architecture of the V&A’s Grand Entrance. “I wanted to create a site-specific installation that would entice

London Fashion Industry Favorite, Kids Company Charity, Set to Close

END OF AN ERA: Kids Company, the London charity that has long been a favorite of many a British fashion label, is set to close its doors on Wednesday after months of turmoil and the resignation of its chief executive Camila Batmanghelidjh, who founded the charity in 1996. The charity, whose aim was to help vulnerable, inner-city children, is closing over claims of financial mismanagement.
Labels including Fendi, Stella McCartney, Mulberry, Folli Follie and Matthew Williamson have all hosted events or collaborated with Kids Company in the past. Last year, Fendi organized an auction of its Peekaboo bags, designed by celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Jerry Hall and Cara Delevingne, in aid of Kids Company. The event marked the opening of Fendi’s New Bond Street store.
In 2013, Paltrow and Williamson hosted a dinner in London to raise awareness for the charity, while in 2010 Stella McCartney hosted a Fashion’s Night Out event for the organization, showcasing creations by children that Kids Company supported. Folli Follie and Mulberry have both produced designs in collaboration with the organization.
Batmanghelidjh founded Kids Company in 1996, with the aim of supporting children, young people and families in need. Batmanghelidjh, who cuts a striking figure, with her

Apple Watch Debuts in London, Paris Stores

TIME TRAVELERS: Apple Watch made its European retail debut on Friday morning with upscale shop-in-shops at Selfridges in London, where the brand filled the windows with an installation of iridescent butterflies, and Galeries Lafayette in Paris.
The stores were packed with mostly male shoppers testing out the 38 iterations of the multitasking watch that’s part personal trainer and executive assistant, part navigation device and instant chat tool. Oh, and it tells the time, too.
“This is just fabulous: It syncs with the iPhone, which means you have the freedom to leave your phone on your desk and still be able to check on everything,” said Herbert Yip, a Hong Kong native who was visiting London with his family.
Yip said he was leaning toward ordering the sports model. “I was going to buy another device to use as my health kit, but when I knew the Apple was coming out with its own, I waited,” he explained.
The Apple Watch shop at Selfridges is located in the Wonder Room on the ground floor, which is also home to brands such as Bulgari, Chopard, Cartier and Tiffany & Co.
Apple has filled the space — which is permanent and spans about more than 1,000 square feet — with towering ficus

Westfield Turns to Virtual Reality in London

WESTFIELD’S VIRTUAL TRENDS: Westfield in London has turned to virtual reality technology to showcase its spring 2015 fashion trends to customers in its Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City malls. Both locations will host a series of digital fashion experiences in March and April called Future Fashion, to bring trends such as denim, florals and “future modern” to life for the malls’ customers. One experience will allow customers to use virtual reality headsets to explore abstract interpretations of different trends in what Westfield called “a completely fantastical space.” Gesture-tracking technology will also mean that customers can use their hands to interact with characters in the virtual world and travel through the space. Another will center on fashion avatars, as part of which customers can use their body movements to create avatars on large screens, in a palette of patterns and images that reflect the trends, such as woven threads or flowers.
Meanwhile Edit Me, Westfield’s trends micro-site — which is available on touch screens in the malls — will allow customers to curate and shop products from Westfield’s retailers that fit with those trends. Westfield has partnered with Inition, a London-based emerging technologies production company, to create the experiences. Myf Ryan,

Alexander McQueen Play to Open in London

MCQUEEN ON STAGE: It seems as if the buzz around the “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibition that opened last week at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum has inspired a host of creative endeavors exploring the late Lee Alexander McQueen’s life. Two books have already been published this year — Andrew Wilson’s “Alexander McQueen: Blood Beneath the Skin” and Dana Thomas’ “Gods and Kings: The Rise and Fall of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano” — and now a play about the late designer is in the pipeline, too. May 12 will see the opening of “McQueen,” a play written by James Phillips and directed by John Caird, at London’s St. James Theater. Among the cast are “Glee” star Dianna Agron, who will make her British stage debut playing a fictional character called Dhalia and Stephen Wight, who will play McQueen, while British actress Tracy-Ann Oberman will play Isabella Blow. Wight has appeared in the BBC’s “Sherlock,” and stage productions including Michael Grandage’s “Don Juan in Soho,” and Nicholas Hytner’s “The Habit of Art,” while Oberman is known for her British television work. The theater states that the work is “more than a bio play,” and describes it as “a journey into the visionary

Jack the Ripper: The 1888 London East End Serial Killer

Jack the Ripper: The 1888 London East End Serial Killer


East London included the London docks and run-down areas of Whitechapel, Spitalfields, and Bethnal Green As the parish of Whitechapel in London’s East End became increasingly overcrowded, housing conditions steadily worsened and the area was overrun with violence, robbery, and alcoholism. London’s East End was perfect for crime. A maze of streets, alleys, courts, and yards covered the East End and the gaslights, which were few and far between, did little to illuminate the dark shadows. The Ripper’s chosen victims, the prostitutes of the East End, were easy kill targets. The woman working the streets in the East End were hardly a dream date. Many were overweight or skinny with homely faces, missing teeth, bad breath, and were outright drunks with hair-trigger tempers and nasty dispositions. They typically lived in flophouses (the “doss houses”) whenever they did not drink their money away and walked about with everything they owned on their person. Although these prostitutes might not have won any beauty contests, at least they were available for a man to satisfy his sexual needs in an age when their Victorian Era wives considered sex as a task to be reluctantly endured to procreate children. Sex was usually performed standing up against a building or fence, as the prostitute had no inclination to lay down on her back in the mud in her only change of clothes. In most cases the prostitute lifted up her dress with her back to the client. She was the perfect target for the Ripper and obligingly set her self up to have her throat easily slit in a dark corner of the street or alleyway with little effort or struggle. This book contains virtually all the information available to the London Metropolitan Police and Scotland Yard in 1888 along with subsequent hindsight the police at the time did not have at the time. And although some suspects were clearly identified by the police as possibilities for Jack the Ripper, the lack of evidence and lack of credibility of eye witness a

London Belles


London Belles is a tale of four very different young women thrown together by war. Finding freedom and independence – as well as love, passion and heartbreak – for the very first time, a unique bond is formed as the hostilities take their toll on Britain. United by chance, bound together in times of need When tragedy strikes, Olive is forced to seek lodgers. Three girls come knocking at her door, each in need of a roof over their heads. Sally has left Liverpool to work as a nurse in London and when she arrives she is a shell of her former self. Where once stood a vivacious, sociable girl, now stands one plagued by homesickness and a betrayal that is devastatingly fresh in her mind. Dulcie is living the high life in the West End, a world away from her home in Stepney. Working at Selfridges gives her access to the most fashionable clothes and makeup, but at home she is the black sheep of the family; always second to her sister. So she decides it’s time to make a bid for freedom. Agnes grew up in an orphanage, having been left on the steps as a new-born baby. But with war looming, and the orphanage relocating to the country, she must now seek out a job and lodgings. But with change comes exciting new opportunities, worlds away from the life she’s known… As the women prepare for war, all of their futures hang in the balance. Soon their lives will change irrevocably and the home that binds the London Belles is no longer the sanctuary they once sought.

Bill Murray Introduced An NFL Game In London Wearing A Bear Hat

Bill Murray is the type of guy who could engage in any weird, random act of absurdity and we’d hardly question it. Why? Because he’s Bill Murray.

The “St. Vincent” actor introduced the Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons NFL game that took place on Sunday in London. He was wearing a bear hat, because why not. “If I were an Englishman and heard the Falcons were gonna fight the Lions in public, it would sound a little too cruel for me,” Murray says in the video. “I’d stay home and drink beer and tea like they do.”

Murray also announced another NFL game taking place in the U.S. between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Arizona Cardinals. Then the actor broke into a cardinal whistle and did a weird little dance. It’s bizarre, it’s hilarious and it’s definitely our second-favorite Murray commercial. (You know which one’s first.)

Royal Navy Victualling Yard, East Smithfield, London

Royal Navy Victualling Yard, East Smithfield, London


The Royal Navy victualling yard was excavated in 1983-8 as part of the Royal Mint site. Founded in 1560, on the site of a Black Death cemetery and the suppressed Cistercian abbey of St Mary Graces, it was the first large-scale naval food supply base in Britain and remained the principal one until the 18th century. The yard closed in 1785, having proved inadequate for the needs of the expanding Georgian navy. A substantial part of the ground plan of the yard was recorded, including salt houses and pickling sheds, slaughterhouses and yards, bakeries, coopers workshops, storehouses, and the offices and dwellings of yard personnel. The evidence suggests that food processing was increasingly industrialised from the late 17th century onwards. The excavated remains are compared to the substantial documentary evidence available, particularly two detailed plans of 1635 and 1776. The success and ultimate failure of the yard as a supply depot is assessed, including the extent to which former abbey buildings were reused by the navy and the deleterious effect this had. The work reported on here represents the most extensive excavation and post-excavation analysis of an early post-medieval naval victualling establishment in this country.

First Nighter: “Skylight,” “The Pajama Game” Revived, “Adler & Gibb” New in London

LONDON–When Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy) drops in on Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) totally unannounced in the revival of David Hare’s 1995 play Skylight, at Wyndham’s, he’s clearly there to fan the embers of a six-year affair that ended two years earlier. That’s when Tom’s dying wife Alice learned about what was going on, and Kyra left the household, having long told Tom she would depart immediately if Alice ever found out.

At Alice’s council-flat-like home (Bob Crowley’s cleverly claustrophobic design), Tom and Kyra go through two acts of quarreling about their various motives, alternating between reconciliation and permanent rupture, but not incidentally before Tom’s son Edward (Peter Beard) has preceded his father to Kyra’s, saying his father is in psychological trouble and needs her help.

Once Tom–snazzily dressed in slim blue overcoat, jacket, trousers and slim tie–and Kyra, garbed in practical black (Crowley’s costumes), get gabbing, what they say to each other is sometimes soothing but, with a short break for an unseen encounter in bed, mostly wounding. Tom accuses her of being grandly abusive by leaving as she had. She upbraids him for his callous attitude towards her current employment: teaching deprived children.

Since this is Hare, the dialogue is cutting cut-crystal. Tom and Kyra are smart people–Edward is also bright and nice but troubled–and so they have smart things to say about themselves and each other. Before the chatty work is over, Hare has weighted it in Kyra’s favor, in spite of giving Tom the funnier, even cute, comments. Tom also gets laughs every time he refers to a part of London audiences think amusing at their mere mention.

Because there’s so much palaver and little action–a few items, like a kitchen drawer, do get thrown–director Stephen Daldry keeps Kyra, Tom and, when he’s present, Peter on the constant trot. Tom can sit still but doesn’t like to. Kyra spends a good deal of her time preparing a meal that doesn’t get eaten. If she isn’t slicing and dicing, she often stands about listening severely with arms folded across her chest.

When Skylight premiered with Michael Gambon and Lia Williams in the roles, they seemed like stick figures expressing opposite political views. That isn’t the case here. Not that Gambon and Williams weren’t effective, but somehow Mulligan and Nighy bring convincing vitality to this stage. Nighy plays a man so intent on getting to his point that he often fails to end words in order to get on to the next point. All he lets out are, say, “Los Angel–” or “confu–.”

Because the second act of Skylight is too much a repeat of the first in terms of the focal pair’s back-and-forthing, it isn’t among the best of Hare’s 29 full-length words, but thanks to the playing and the directing here, it’s full of dramatic oomph.
**************************************************************************************************
A curious thing happened when I saw the revival of The Pajama Game, at the Shaftesbury, on the only day, a matinée, I was able to get to it. I learned at picking up my press seats that both leading ladies–Joanna Riding and Alexis Owen-Hobbs–would be replaced by their understudies, Lauren Varnham as Babe Williams and Helen Ternent as Gladys.

It wouldn’t be that unusual a recurrence, were it not for specific theater lore associated with the original 1954 Pajama Game production and what happened one day when the original Gladys (Carol Haney) couldn’t go on, and her understudy did: Shirley MacLaine. Movie producer Hal B. Wallis was in the second audience for which she performed, and the rest is theater/movie history.

Wallis is gone, but if Harvey Weinstein had shown up in the orchestra the day I was there (I didn’t see him, but you never know), history could now be repeating itself for Varnham or Ternent or both. They each delivered vivacious performances in the musical for which Richard Bissell and George Abbott supplied the libretto (based on Bissell’s novel 7 1/2 Cents), for which the young songwriting of Jerry Ross and Richard Adler supplied the memorably jubilant score and for which the first reviews were deserved raves.

If The Pajama Game is new to you, it takes place at the Sleep Tite pajama factory (imagined as a dark and hulking environment by Tim Hatley), where the workers, led by grievance committee head Williams comes up against shop manager Sid Sorokin (Michael Xavier) over demands for a raise that company head Mr. Hasler (Colin Stinton) refuses to grant.

Today, the minuscule hike the employees want dates the tuner, and the loose treatment women on site receive from the men would probably be toned way down, but the start-to-finish ebullience and those songs–three of which (“Hey There,” “Hernando’s Hideaway,” “Steam Heat”) became Top 40 clicks–guarantee a good time.

Director Richard Eyre makes certain that nothing misfires, and choreographer Stephen Mear keeps the joint jumping. (Bob Fosse was the original dance master, and he remains hard to equal.) The cast is bright-eyed and sharp, especially tall, good-looking Xavier of the ringing voice; Stinton at his harrumphing, Gary Wilmot as jealous-of-Gladys time/study man Vernon Hines and Claire Machin as secretary Mabel.
*************************************************************************************************
In the first act of Tim Crouch’s Adler & Gibb, just opened at the Royal Court, an American student (Rachel Redford) stomps into a pit carved from the orchestra, approaches a lectern and starts reading a paper on the fictional collaborative artists Janet Adler and Margaret Gibb (Amelda Brown). This is after the play starts, and audience members taking their seats have watched a couple of children on the stage, lying prone and drawing.

As the student haltingly reads her text, she calls for accompanying slides, at which point actors Brown and others take the stage and begin to talk. Apparently, these living slides are Margaret resisting a movie crew come to make a documentary on the artistic pair.

What Crouch is getting at, in part certainly, is a send-up of the respect shown conceptual artists, in this instance two who when asked to contribute to the Whitney Museum’s permanent collection, send a three-month old mongrel puppy.

As the actors declaim, often loudly and directly at the audience, the children hand them props and perform other duties. At one point in the puzzling first-act proceedings, Louise (Denise Gough)–who’s meant to portray Adler in the film–takes an air-filled plastic bat and savagely beats to supposed death one of the children.

Enough proceeding that pointless gesture had been off-putting, but it was then that I, who never leave a play I’m reviewing, decided to break my rule and skip the second act of a work playwright Crouch directed with Karl James and Andy Smith. It took three of them to oversee this specious material?

Kerry and Lavrov: The London Sessions (Secret Transcript)

Kerry: Hello, Sergey. How are you?

Lavrov: Good, John. You?

Kerry: Fine, fine. How was your flight?

Lavrov: Nice. It’s a short hop from Moscow. You know, John, I’ve always wanted to ask you: Do you have a bed on your plane?

Kerry: Not just a bed. There’s a bedroom and a full bathroom with a shower.

Lavrov: Ah, that’s why you always look so fresh.

Kerry: Yes, but I gotta tell ya, Sergey, I’m tired. I’m always jet-lagged.

Lavrov: Too bad you don’t get miles.

[Both laugh.]

Kerry: I don’t need miles, Sergey. I’m worth $ 300 million. I could buy my own plane.

Lavrov: [Sighs.] It is so important to marry well.

Kerry: So, Sergey, what are we going to do? Are you guys really going to annex Crimea? And you know, you’re not fooling anyone with the “they aren’t Russian troops” bit.

Lavrov: Look, if it were up to me, the Russian troops would be back in their barracks already. But it’s the big guy. He has his heart set on it. You know, “place in history,” blah, blah, blah.

Kerry: I understand. But you gotta know he is making folks nervous.

Lavrov: He’s making me nervous. Look, this is a guy who never misses an opportunity to take his shirt off in public.

Kerry: Can’t you talk to him?

Lavrov: I’ve tried. He won’t listen. What will Obama do?

Kerry: I don’t know. He’s getting a lot of pressure from the hardliners.

Lavrov: Can’t you just put them in jail? Trumped-up charges? Corruption? Works for us.

Kerry: [Sighs.] Sometimes I wish our system were more like yours. It would make life so easy.

Lavrov: Seriously, though, you wouldn’t send troops, would you?

Kerry: Sergey, we both know that we’re spread a little thin. It depends on the American public.

Lavrov: No offense, John, but the American public couldn’t find Crimea on a map if they were selling big-screen TVs for a dollar.

Kerry: I know, I know. Look we probably wouldn’t send troops, but if the Europeans decide to do something, then we’d have to support them. Your boss is scaring them. You know it brings back a lot of memories: the communist menace, Russian adventurism.

Lavrov: John, that was over 20 years ago. We’re capitalists now. Speaking of which, thanks for talking to Cameron. The oligarchs and mob bosses are really on our backs about making sure they have access to their cash in London.

Kerry: My pleasure. Tell them not to worry. So what are you doing for dinner tonight?

Lavrov: Not sure.

Kerry: I heard about this great new Italian place in Chelsea.

Lavrov: Enricos?

Kerry: Yeah, that’s the place. I hear their tiramisu is fantastic.

Lavrov: It is. So where do you want to meet next time?

Kerry: Wanna do Geneva again?

Lavrov: We just did Geneva.

Kerry: Right. How about Berlin?

Lavrov: And spend more time with Angela? No, thanks. How about Istanbul? I know this little place that serves the best baklava.

Kerry: Sounds good. OK, the press is waiting. What are we going tell them?

Lavrov: Shall we go with the usual “constructive dialogue”?

Kerry: Didn’t we use that last week?

Lavrov: No, I think we went with “frank exchange of views.”

Kerry: You’re right. Sorry. It’s the jet lag. OK, then. Game face on?

Lavrov: Let’s do it.

Doré’s London

Doré’s London


London in the middle of the 1800s was a subject endlessly sketched by artists, studied by social reformers, and discussed by writers. This comprehensive collection of drawings by Gustave Doré, France’s most celebrated graphic artist of the period, presents a panoramic portrait of that engrossing city — from fashionable ladies riding in a sunlit park to ragged wretches in a shadowy side street. Here are amazingly perceptive sketches of workaday London, busy market places, the Christy Minstrels, a waterman’s family, thieves gambling, the Devils’ Acre in Westminster, flower girls, waifs and strays, a wedding at the Abbey, provincials in search of lodgings, a garden party, prisoners in the Newgate exercise yard, stalls at Covent Garden Opera House, and many other scenes that capture the London of a bygone era.
