Kim Kardashian Used Healing Crystals to Recover From 2016 Paris Robbery

Kim Kardashian is diving further into the beauty world, launching three eau de parfums at her online beauty destination, kkwfragrance.com, on Nov. 15. The three variations on gardenia, her favorite flower and scent, are first come, first serve fragrances. Once they’re gone, that’s it.
In an exclusive interview with WWD, Kardashian outlined the process of creating and launching her three fragrances, Crystal Gardenia, Crystal Gardenia Citrus and Crystal Gardenia Oud, including the inspiration behind them.
“Honestly, after my Paris situation [when she was held at gunpoint and robbed], a lot of my friends would come over and bring me healing crystals, and I obviously knew what they were — it’s very L.A. and it’s very popular right now — but for me it meant something so different. I was sitting there and I’d get these collections of them and I started to really dig deeper into what they meant and the meanings behind them and started to go to these crystal warehouses in Culver City and downtown [L.A.],” said Kardashian.
Developing each scent was about “being calm and healing,” which are the two words Kardashian used to describe a newly zen approach she’s taken over the past year. The color variations of each

Peclers Paris to Host Future of Fashion Conference

PARIS — Fashion has lost its meaning. That’s the prognosis of Eric Duchamp, global chief executive officer of leading forecasting agency Peclers Paris, who on Thursday will host a conference geared at identifying — during stagnant times for the industry, and a banalization of offer — the crucial “strategic levers” brands need to activate to boost performance in the years to come.
Titled “La mode doit gagner la bataille du sens,” or in English, “Fashion Must Make Sense Again,” the Future of Fashion conference will take place at Paris restaurant Noto.
The Peclers Paris team will present future insights and some of the key macro trends that they believe will impact brands and consumers in the next five years, based on findings of a market study around brand perception conducted by Kantar TNS, as well as a range of “strategic levers” identified by the Peclers Paris team that brands need to activate to boost performance in the years to come.
Conducted online between May and June of this year, the study involved a panel of 2010 consumers aged from 16 to 60, with a 50-50 breakdown of men and women, and covered their perception of 25 brands for the women and 22 brands

Americans In Paris Share Top Tips for the City of Light

WHEN IN PARIS: Sunday morning, the designers at the Americans in Paris showroom on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, backed by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue, were still buzzing from Saturday night’s cocktail party co-hosted by Karlie Kloss. “It was amazing,” said Joshua Cooper, one half of design duo Rochambeau.
“Karlie Kloss was wearing one of my looks, this white skirt and a shirt dress,” said a proud Adam Selman. The designer added that the showroom had been busier this season, perhaps because March’s session had been hampered by the rain.
Cooper, meanwhile, apologized for the half-empty racks for his brand. “There’s a lot of models running around in our clothing this week, so it’s not all here,” he explained.
Other designers shared their favorite spots in Paris to check out while in town. “I did my favorite thing in Paris, which is to go vintage shopping,” said lingerie designer Morgan Lane.
The Rue de Bretagne in the Marais is her favorite place for hunting for second-hand gems, she added. “I bought an amazing earring with gold strings that drip down, and a beautiful white ruffled dress,” she added. Lane also hoped to get out to the Foire de Chatou, one

Salma Hayek Weighs In on Paris’ Car-Free Day

TAKE A WALK: Car-free day during Paris Fashion Week. For or against? With the city’s third edition of the event under Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo to take place on Sunday, with no vehicles allowed to circulate in the city between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. except for emergency services, taxis, buses and accredited chauffeurs, guests attending the Altuzarra show on Saturday night expressed their views.
“I’m against it, because I love to drive,” said Pierre Hardy, who likes to think he doesn’t contribute too much to the city’s pollution levels, as he only drives around 10 minutes a day. “I own an old Mercedes and an old Jaguar,” he said.
Ami’s Alexandre Mattiussi, who also attended the show, said it’s a good thing, “though I’m sure everyone’s complaining about it, with it being Paris Fashion Week. Living in Paris, it’s such a nightmare with the cars, but I do have a scooter, so I don’t want them banning scooters,” he said. “I’m going to be driving mine in any case, I’m a rebel. I’ll pay the fine.”

The Wall Group to Open Paris Office

Talent agency The Wall Group is set to open a Paris office next week in the midst of the city’s fashion week. The agency, which represents hairstylists, makeup artist and fashion stylists, has a roster that includes Danilo, Renato Campora, Ben Skervin, Hung Vanngo, Frank B, Alice Lane, Kate Young, Karla Welch and Elizabeth Stewart.
“Our decision to expand into Paris is a logical next step for our business,” said founder Brooke Wall. “We’ve worked with European talent, brands and fashion houses for years from afar, but demand continues to increase as the focus on international red carpets, film festivals and fashion presentations intensifies. We see a lot of opportunity to grow our services in-market and are excited about this evolution.”
Wall founded TWG in 2000 in New York and began with a roster of behind-the-scenes talent focused on the traditional fashion and editorial industry. TWG opened its Los Angeles office in 2003 to addresses the small but burgeoning group of artists focused on celebrity and red carpet styling. Today, those artists are among those signing lucrative consulting and designing gigs, such as Welch’s recent tie-up with Hanes, for which Justin Bieber was the poster boy.
In 2015, The Wall Group was acquired

L’Oréal Paris and Balmain Paris Unveil Lipstick Ad Campaign

GIVING LIP: L’Oréal Paris and Balmain Paris today unveiled the advertising campaign for their soon-to-launch capsule collection of lipsticks.
Embodying the ‘Balmain army’ attitude, in the campaign, lensed by Nico Bustos, Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing is captured storming across a Paris rooftop at dawn – the Eiffel Tower on the horizon – flanked by 12 models of different origins and backgrounds including Lara Stone, Neelam Gill, and Alexina Graham. They each sport a different Balmain look offset by lipsticks from the line.
According to a joint statement released by the brands on Monday, the casting is meant to reflect “three tribes of L’Oréal Paris and Balmain Paris femininity,” much like the line’s Rock, Couture and Glamazone themes, each housing four shades designed to suit a range of complexions and send “a message of beauty in diversity and female empowerment.”
Ysaunny Brito, Soo Joo Park, Doutzen Kroes model what is termed as the star shades from each of the groups. The 12 lipsticks stand in line at the bottom of the image, topped with the tagline, ‘United, We are Invincible.’
As reported the line, due launch in early September in select points of sale where L’Oréal Paris is already carried, marks the first foray into beauty

Excitement Mounts as Paris Poised to Land 2024 Olympics

OLYMPIC SIGHTS: Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo reacted happily to news that Los Angeles had struck a deal with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to host the Olympics in 2028, clearing the way for Paris to fill the 2024 slot.
“Happy that my friend @MayorOfLA is making a new and important step towards an agreement that will lead to three winners: Paris, Los Angeles and the IOC,” said Hidalgo on Twitter. “Discussions between our two cities and the IOC will continue throughout the month of August to reach a three-way agreement.”
The Paris mayor stopped short of claiming victory, a position echoed by French President Emmanuel Macron, who recently attended a series of sports events organized along the Seine river as part of the city’s bid.

Tata Harper to Open Spa Room in Le Bristol Paris Hotel

CRÈME DE LA CRÈME: Tata Harper Skincare is bringing her eponymous natural luxury skin care to Le Bristol Paris hotel, where starting on Sept. 27 and 28 she will inaugurate a first spa room in the City of Light.
“It’s a room and a little lounge,” she told journalists in Paris during a lunch on Thursday. “We’ve developed specific protocols — for face, beauty, everything — for our Bristol client.”
Harper, who is co-chief executive officer of Tata Harper with her husband, Henry Harper, said the concept at the hotel will be along similar lines to what her brand has opened in Credo in the U.S.
The Vermont-based executive also unveiled her latest product, Crème Riche, a rich cream chockablock with 43 actives. It will be launched in mid-September in France, the U.K., U.S. and Canada.
“This product has been in the making for almost three years. It involved almost five different scientists, and it has the latest in antiaging and moisturization technology today,” said Harper, citing sugar acids and microalgues technology as examples.
“It really represents the pinnacle of our formulation today,” she continued. “This was one of the most requested products that people really wanted.”

Dubai-Based Designer Rami Al Ali Considers Paris Location

TAKING FLIGHT: Syrian designer Rami Al Ali is thinking about establishing a permanent presence in Paris for his namesake label.
“Paris is an important window display for the world,” said the Dubai-based designer, who showcased his fall couture collection at the Ritz Paris hotel. Around 85 percent of his clients are from the Gulf region, he said, describing them as young jet-setters who want to stand out.
Al Ali, who usually works with neutral hues and metallics, ventured into new territory this season: dusty pink.
“Everyone was afraid it would be too girly,” he said, gesturing towards the array of structured gowns in tulle, organza and silk gazar. His inspiration came from a late 19th-century portrait of an angel by the American painter Abbott Handerson Thayer, which drew him with its mix of innocence and strength.
“The color gives lightness,” he said, lifting a heavy fold. He declined reveal what secret material sewn between the layers gave it heft. “That would be getting into the spices of the kitchen,” he said with a smile.
One bright dress brought a colorful tang to the collection. Deep crimson, it was made of the thinnest, airy silk. It was easy to see how the recurring theme of vertical

Ingie Paris Resort 2018

Ingie Chalhoub took resort quite literally, offering up a languid collection inspired by the California lifestyle of the Seventies. Palazzo pants, jumpsuits and flowing dresses featured paisley or swirling vintage-style prints in a variety of pastel hues on white backgrounds, with floral adornments and hand-sewn braided details to knock home the hippie-chic message. Others were worked in plain candy-colored silk that flowed on the body, or in more structured jersey with a Neoprene texture.
These were contrasted with glittering fabrics that glammed things up. A graphic sequined guipure worked well on a long maxiskirt in off-white or a black shirt with translucent organza sleeves, while an ivory boyfriend blazer with sequin details had a relaxed charm. On a striped rough-hewn fabric, meanwhile, the contrast of metallic threads and pastels made for a refreshing look.

Rick Owens and Michèle Lamy Sign Copies of “Furniture” Book in Paris

MR & MRS: Rick Owens and his wife Michèle Lamy held court on Tuesday evening on the first floor of the designer’s store in the Palais-Royal in Paris, where they signed copies of “Rick Owens: Furniture,” the coffee table book published by Rizzoli New York.
The pair’s banter provided an insight into the creative process behind the furniture design, which Owens conceives and Lamy executes. Just don’t call it a collaboration.

“He hates the word, he’s so nervous about it,” said Lamy, adding it was just a manner of speech.
Owens said it was hard to single out a particular creation. “I like it all, because when doing a book, I really enjoy the whole laying-out process and going through every little thing,” he said. “I mean, out of all the stuff that we’ve done, that’s an edit of all my favorite stuff, so I can’t even pick my favorite.”

New and Noteworthy Additions to the Paris Calendar

Amiri 
“Amiri is Los Angeles based but the collection is directly adjacent to brands like Saint Laurent and Givenchy in over 140 of the top retail doors in the world. It only makes sense that the collection is shown within the same context and city,” said Mike Amiri who, after five seasons showing by-appointment in Paris, is hosting his first presentation, albeit informal, with two models, mannequins and an installation. The brand’s two-day presentation on Rue Royale wraps today.
But while he may be showing in Paris, he’s losing none of the label’s rock ‘n’ roll California vibe. The Venice beach boardwalk in the late Eighties and early Nineties created most of the reference points for the brand’s spring collection, said the designer, who started the line in 2014 with repaired denim.
“There was an incredibly distinct clash of cultures during this era. You had the streetball movement, break-dancers, skaters, artisans, drugs, gangs and music — all intersecting in and around the boardwalk.”
Along with the visual cues, this cultural juxtaposition inspired the process and non-conventional techniques used, said the designer, who in the new collection applied traditional denim washing techniques to fine silks, knitting Italian cashmere in Los Angeles and hand tie-dyeing each piece,

Buyers Seek Standouts With Identity at Paris Men’s Trade Shows

PARIS — It was all about having a strong identity at the recent spring 2018 men’s trade shows here. Homespun, cultural references, vintage and surf styles and streetwear were selling well, with buyers seeking standout items and new discoveries to complement their core designer offering and differentiate themselves, rather than seeking out specific trends.
“Trends are hard to build a business around these days,” observed Chris Thomas, director of retail for Melbourne, Australia’s Service Denim Stores. “We’re looking for accessories to accentuate our core offer that have a point of uniqueness in the Australian market,” he said. “The ability to be unisex is important, too.”
Indeed, more and more brands were showing what they described as “unisex” collections as the trend for outsize gender-neutral garments continues to gain traction. Labels that tapped into heritage styles and techniques, especially from Japan and France, were also popular, as were new takes on performance wear.
Brands showing at Tranoï, Man and Capsule, held over the weekend during Paris Men’s Fashion Week, said foot traffic had been relatively slow, although key buyers had walked through, with a strong presence from Asian, especially Japan, and U.K.-based retailers.

Sportswear Drives Upbeat Paris Season for Men’s Buyers

PARIS — If the Paris men’s wear shows proved anything, it’s that the sportswear trend is set to run and run — pardon the pun. Tracksuits, sneakers, hoodies, graphic T-shirts, anoraks, zip-up jackets and even surf gear were among the key trends that energized buyers at the spring collections.
“The well-tailored formal attire has been retired to the back of the closet, only to be replaced by a plethora of athletic apparel,” said Tom Kalenderian, executive vice president, general merchandise manager of men’s and Chelsea Passage at Barneys New York. “Call it what you will: ‘street’ or ‘active’ — regardless, it is becoming standard issue for every man’s wardrobe.”
Despite a heat wave on the first two days of the collections, retailers felt an upbeat vibe in the French capital, and many were happy to loosen the purse strings. Footwear was especially strong, they noted.
“The footwear trend of the moment is the runner, often built on a ‘sock’ construction and in amazing color combinations reminiscent of rich Indonesian patterns in a pop color palette,” said Kalenderian.
“We feel really energized by what we’ve seen here in Paris,” said Dean Cook, men’s wear buying manager at Brownsfashion.com. “There’s a lot of creativity here and that

Men’s Spring 2018: The Paris Medals Race

Paris spent the weekend in dual celebrations. On Saturday the city’s streets were filled with floats and joyous crowds for the Gay Pride March, while that day and Friday saw events all over town to promote the City of Light’s bid for the 2024 Olympics (although snarling traffic to do so perhaps wasn’t the best way to win over the International Olympic Committee).
Here WWD ranks the men’s shows based on how they fared in their Olympian goal: To win a medal. But, designers please remember Baron de Coubertin’s creed: “The most important thing…is not to win, but to take part….The essential thing is not to have conquered, but to have fought well.”
And while Olympians might have to wait four years for another shot at a medal, you — the lucky designers and fashion pack — only have six months until next men’s season. Let the games begin.

Paris Men’s Sizzles — In More Ways Than One

PARIS — Call it the Macron effect. With Paris men’s fashion week in full swing since Wednesday, retailers and brands say there’s a positive global energy that is helping propel business, boosted by the recent election of President Emmanuel Macron — a man well-connected with the nation’s luxury conglomerates and also contributing to the goodwill toward France.
“I moved to Paris three months ago, and I have to say that, especially since the elections, there is a high level of confidence, trust and energy. I am hearing that from all over the world,” said Balmain’s new chief executive officer Massimo Piombini.
“It’s a global energy that is spreading. There is a global drive,” agreed Pascal Morand, executive president of the Fédération Française de la Couture du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode.
That’s despite Paris being further rattled by an attack on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées on Monday, marking the fifth time in four months that security forces were targeted in the city. Morand said the federation and its members are working with state services and police to ensure safety during the men’s season and the women’s couture shows, which begin July 2.

Monique Lhuillier Plans Paris Show for Guests at Hôtel d’Évreux

PARIS IS CALLING: Add Monique Lhuillier to the list of American designers who has set her sights on Paris.
Following in the footsteps of Proenza Schouler and Rodarte who are Paris-bound next month, she will be showing her spring collection on July 3 at Hôtel d’Évreux with an 11:30 a.m. start time. There will be 275 guests, a more intimate group than the crowds of 750 that are invited to her New York Fashion Week shows. “It will be like sharing the magic in a different platform,” she said. “It will be my ready-to-wear but slightly elevated and more intricate.”
In November, the designer and her business partner husband Tom Bugbee decided the time was right to show the collection somewhere where they never had before. “Paris has always been a place that I hold very dear to my heart and it’s the fashion capital of the world. It’s also a great gateway to reach out to the Asian market and the European market,” she said.
Tricky as it can be dealing with the distance, the logistics and new production teams, Lhuillier said she is already accustomed to similar challenges since her Los Angeles-based team must be flown to New York for fashion

Maison Margiela to Skip Men’s Presentation in Paris

PRESS PAUSE: Maison Margiela will sit out the Paris men’s shows this season as it undergoes a strategic review under chief executive officer Riccardo Bellini, who joined the company in March.
The house is believed to be aligning its men’s ready-to-wear collection more closely with its women’s line and Artisanal couture collection. Maison Margiela creative director John Galliano oversees all three lines.
The house staged a presentation last season but has yet to decide if it will return in January with a runway or presentation format. What is certain is that it has no plans to stage a coed show during the women’s shows in September, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
For the spring-summer 2018 season, Margiela will show its men’s collection to buyers at the Staff International showroom from June 26 to July 23. The men’s shows will take place in the French capital from June 21 to 25.

Al Gore on Why the U.S. Loses Jobs, Power (and Planet Earth) by Leaving the Paris Climate Agreement

President Donald Trump’s controversial decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement was more than “inconvenient” for the U.S. — it threatens jobs, our standing in the world — and most of all, our planet, says former Vice President Al Gore.

“This is as serious as it gets,” the longtime environmentalist tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue.

“What the scientists told us 20 years ago has come true,” says Gore, who warned the world about the catastrophic effects of climate change in his 2006 Academy Award-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. He is following up that documentary with An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, which premieres in August.

“What they are telling us now will happen in the future if we don’t stop using the atmosphere as an open sewer includes the threat that human civilization itself will be in danger,” says Gore, who met with President Trump and his daughter, Ivanka Trump, after the election to discuss climate change.

“We are in a race against time,” says Gore.

The aim of the 2015 global agreement, which had the world cheering when it was ratified, is to reduce carbon emissions as fast as possible to prevent the earth from warming by more than 2 degrees Celsius in this century.

Temperatures that rise higher than 2 degrees Celsius could trigger catastrophic — and irreversible — environmental effects we can no longer control, such as food and water shortages, massive drought, more flooding, extreme weather, the rampant spread of disease and dangers posed by rising seas, say scientists.

 

The climate crisis also poses a threat to our national security — and life as we know it, say experts.

Calling the agreement a “bad deal” for the country that would cost coal miners their jobs, Trump — with the backing of 22 U.S. Senators including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — withdrew the U.S. from the international agreement.

While Trump insisted he made the right decision for the nation, his decision drew ire from major companies, world leaders and citizens around the globe.

But going green, says Gore and others, will actually boost the economy like never before. “Jobs in the solar industry are increasing 17 times faster than other jobs are increasing in the U.S.,” he says.

The fastest growing job of all? “Wind turbine technician,” he says.

“According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, that will be the fastest growing job in the next ten years,” he says.

All over the world, tens of millions of new jobs in renewable energy, new technologies and sustainability are opening up, he says.

The Sustainability Revolution, as he calls it, “is happening all over the world. It has the scope and magnitude of the industrial revolution but the speed of the digital information revolution and it’s changing everything for the better.”

Solar and wind energy, batteries and hundreds of other efficiency technologies are now becoming much cheaper, far more rapidly than anyone predicted, he says.

“It’s almost like the computer chip revolution and the mobile phone revolution where products got much cheaper, faster than anyone could have imagined, even as their quality improved by leaps and bounds.”

Power Vacuum

Not only is the U.S. losing out on economic and trade opportunities by opting out of the agreement, but it is giving up its standing as the leader of the world, leaving a void that other nations, like China, are eager to fill, says Gore.

Withdrawing our country from the pact “has isolated the U.S. in the world community,” he adds.

By leaving the agreement, the U.S. gave away any say in how the world will tackle the climate crisis in the future, he says.

“The real risk is that all of these other countries will retaliate against the U.S. by trading among themselves and concentrating new jobs in solar and wind in their countries and not the U.S.,” he says.

“They have the legal right now to put up barriers against U.S. products that don’t bear any price for carbon pollution.”

‘We Still Have a Chance’

While the world still has a lot to do to head off catastrophe, “we definitely still have a chance,” he says.

While his upcoming film, An Inconvenient Sequel, will focus on how serious this crisis is, it will also detail how “available” solutions are now, he says.

“The big change from 10 years ago is that solar, wind and other renewable technologies are now getting so cheap that it’s easy to switch over,” he says.

Also encouraging? How U.S. businesses including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, GE and others, and individual cities and states are moving on without Trump to solve the climate crisis.

On June 1, California, New York and Washington formed the U.S. Climate Alliance, which is committed to upholding the country’s goals under the Paris Agreement and take aggressive action against the climate crisis.

Since then, 10 states including Connecticut, Hawaii and Virginia have joined the coalition.

“We’re going to meet the commitments under the climate agreement, regardless of what President Trump does,” says Gore.

“If we all make up our minds to do this, we can all solve the climate crisis.”

John Galliano’s Paris Home Burgled – Paper

STOLEN: Thieves broke into the Paris home of designer John Galliano in the night of Friday to Saturday, French newspaper Aujourd’hui en France reported on Sunday.
It was not known if the designer was present during the burglary. The stolen goods included one of the last photographs of Marilyn Monroe, worth more than 50,000 euros, or $ 56,400, the paper said.
Galliano has been based in Paris since he was hired as creative director of Givenchy in 1995. He was the artistic director of women’s ready-to-wear at Dior from 1996 to 2011, when he was dismissed for making racist and anti-Semitic comments at a cafe while under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
Having successfully completed rehab, he was hired in 2014 as creative director of Maison Margiela, where he has kept a discreet public profile, in keeping with the ethos of the label’s founder, Belgian designer Martin Margiela.

It’s an interesting week for 25-year-old Harlem native A$ AP Bari to reveal he’s showing Vlone — his highly sought-after streetwear line — during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris.
It’s the same week Gucci has come under fire for a jacket Alessandro Michele presented at his Cruise 2018 show, which looked very similar to a piece Dapper Dan, another designer from Harlem, created in 1989 for Olympic gold medalist Diane Dixon. Dapper Dan, whose real name is Daniel Day, spent the Eighties outfitting celebrities in his custom pieces, which he made by printing luxury logos onto different fabrics. Critics were upset that Gucci wasn’t transparent about the reference. They later acknowledged his influence in an Instagram post.
“I feel like nobody should hate on what somebody gets inspired by,” said Bari, who is a member of the A$ AP Mob collective. “But it’s sad that it takes 20 or 25 years for them to be inspired by Dapper Dan when he could have been a designer for Gucci. Why didn’t Louis Vuitton give him an opportunity to design for them?”
Bari, who has no formal fashion training, is a reflection of how things are slowly shifting and brands are starting to work directly with streetwear designers.

New Musical Shines Light On ‘Paris Is Burning’ Star And The Mummified Man Found In Her Closet

For over a year before it premiered this past weekend at the Rep Stage regional theatre outside Baltimore, the musical “Dorian’s Closet” was sparking buzz in the media, from Out magazine and the LGBT press to the Baltimore Sun and theater journals. Playwright Richard Mailman, who wrote the book and lyrics, fielded interviews while the show was in rehearsals over those long months, awaiting its debut.

The intense interest isn’t at all surprising. With music by Ryan Hasse and directed by Joseph W. Ritsch, “Dorian’s Closet” is based on the life of Dorian Corey, a prominent subject of Jennie Livingston’s groundbreaking 1990 documentary film, “Paris Is Burning,” about the remarkable Harlem drag balls of the 1980s and the powerfully-bonded community of black and Latino gay and trans people who created them. “Dorian’s Closet” has all of the glamour and the sequin ball gowns and the show-stopping numbers one would expect, relaying the story of a legendary figure on the Harlem ball scene who became internationally famous as a star in the beloved documentary. 

Corey, who used female pronouns and was the “mother” of the House of Corey, succumbed to AIDS in 1993. Soon after, her notoriety shot even higher, when police found a mummy in the closet of her Harlem apartment ― a dead, preserved body of a man who was killed by a gunshot wound, likely 15 years earlier. “Dorian’s Closet,” via musical numbers performed by a grippingly talented cast, follows that story, taking us first back to Corey’s early years in Manhattan. Mailman, who’s worked on many stage and television productions ― but for whom this is his first musical ― discussed the show, the storyline and and where it’s all going, in an interview with me on SiriusXM Progress. This is an edited version of that conversation.

Michelangelo Signorile:  Looking at Dorian Corey’s story, what made you decide, ‘This would be a great musical’? 
Richard Mailman: Why wouldn’t a mummy in the closet make the best musical ever? [Laughter] You know, all those years ago when I saw “Paris is Burning,” it screamed out to be a musical. Obviously this isn’t a musical version of “Paris is Burning.” But just the whole world ― the balls, the drag queens, their performing, that’s definitely ripe for a musical. But I was always a fan of theatrical backstage stories. There’s totally that element of Dorian’s career ― how she ended up in New York, working at [the drag bar] Sal’s in Times Square, and in the Harlem balls. But throw in what they found in the closet after she left it there and, you know, that’s a fabulous number! When I first saw the movie, I was totally intrigued by her.

 

She was the mother of the House of Corey. These were [queer] families [of choice], these houses [which competed in runway walking and voguing against one another at the balls].
There’s all of those elements as well [in “Dorian’s Closet”]. The stories of all of those children ― a lot of them tragic ― that were part of those houses and hers… just what was going on in New York at that time and around that community. I really think that right now, especially with what’s going on politically in the world right now, particularly in this country ― obviously we’ve taken a real slide backward. But I think in a way the story now becomes even more important ― for people to remember what we went through and the struggle we went through. And do we really want to go back there? There’s a lot of that in there too.

For over a year before it premiered, the show was getting this incredible buzz and it just keeps increasing and increasing right up to today. You’ve been doing interviews for about a year.
A lot of that has to do with the fact that people know “Paris Is Burning.” I think we’ve forgotten about how much of an impact that movie had. For a small documentary, how many people remember it. And it still holds up well. It’s still relevant. People remember Dorian. About a year ago when Rep Stage announced their season, and we were included in that, word got out and it just exploded. When people heard about it, they went crazy about it. It made me nervous at first. But it really made me feel good. I started getting so many emails from people who remember Dorian and really, really wanted to see her story told. I should preface the whole thing by saying it is somewhat a fictional account of her life because there’s a lot we don’t know.

There’s a lot we don’t know about the man she purportedly killed and mummified and put in the closet. Was it a boyfriend? Was it a robber? Was it both ― a scammer? There are so many different theories that are out there about what transpired. You had to take [one] narrative and run with it.
The scary part was not knowing the truth. But there was a moment when I realized that the story we really wanted to tell was not so much who he was and how it happened. But how someone could keep a body in their closet for over 15 years and what would make a person do that. By the time you get to the end of the story you understand what these people were going through and what they were faced with.

 

Stephen Scott Wormley, who plays Dorian Corey is spectacular and James Thomas Frisbee, who plays Jesse Torres, another drag performer, is also amazing.
Doing a musical is not easy. Getting even just a small production out there is very difficult and takes a long time and there are a lot of elements involved. This show rests really on Dorian’s shoulders. During almost the entire show she’s onstage. So you’ve got to have a performer not only who can carry that vocally but also who can create this character that people can fall in love with. And I have to say, this [past] weekend [audiences] took to him ― it was amazing. He does a beautiful job with [Dorian].

It has already received some great reviews after the premiere. That’s got to feel good.
It feels really, really good. You kind of lose perspective. You’re locked in a theater, trying to bring it together. You don’t know how it will fly with people. But it was kind of amazing [opening night]. All of a sudden it hit me ― they’re really, really getting it. The thing that I’m just so thrilled about more than anything is that people are walking out, feeling really [good.] This is not a happy story ―

No, but it is kind of uplifting at the end.
When I first saw Dorian, there was something about her ― to quote a song in the show. She does have this optimistic outlook in life. 

Where does the show [performed at Rep Stage in Maryland until May 14] go from here? 
From everything that everyone’s been saying to us, they really feel there’s a way bigger life for this show. It could happen any number of ways. I’m ready for whatever anyone what’s to do with it. I’m ready.

Kate Spade New York to Open Paris Flagship

TRANS-ATLANTIC TRIP: Kate Spade New York is setting up shop in Paris for the first time. The U.S. brand will open a 2,000-square-foot flagship on the Rue Saint-Honoré this summer, showcasing its handbags, ready-to-wear, accessories, small leather goods, jewelry, watches, shoes and eyewear.
Expanding its presence in Europe is a key part of the parent firm Kate Spade & Co.’s strategy. The brand opened a flagship on London’s Regent Street last year. In France, its presence is currently limited to the Galeries Lafayette Haussmann department store and the brand’s dedicated Web site.
“We have already seen strong customer demand and brand resonance in the market with our wholesale presence, making a Paris specialty store the natural next step for Kate Spade & Company’s growth,” said chief executive officer Craig Leavitt in a statement.
The new store, located at number 418 of the upscale shopping thoroughfare, will feature mid-century modern references, although its two-level façade is inspired by traditional Parisian storefronts, with painted wood and dark stone elements. Inside, furniture from the Kate Spade New York home collection will be blended into the design, the brand said.
To coincide with the opening, scheduled for June, the brand has created an exclusive clutch featuring the colors of

Hermès Brings Robert Dallet Expo to Paris

ROARING SUCCESS: More than a year after it opened at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, CT., the “Fierce and Fragile: Big Cats in the Art of Robert Dallet” exhibition is making its way to Paris.
Having toured Europe and Asia since it left the Bruce last March — taking in Milan, Munich, Hong Kong, Taipei and Mumbai — the exhibition, sponsored by Hermès and benefiting conservation group Panthera, will be on show at the brand’s flagship on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré from May 19 to June 10.
The exhibition includes nearly 75 works by the late wildlife artist, who collaborated with Hermès for more than 20 years and whose designs are still used in its collections. Focusing on eight different species of endangered feline, it features paintings, drawings and sketches from the Emile Hermès Collection as well as that of the artist’s family, and is intended to raise awareness about the dangers of extinction facing big cats.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux Bring their Laid-back California Style to the Streets of Paris

In many ways, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are the quintessentially cool Californian couple. She has her effortlessly tousled and endlessly aped locks, perennially perfect golden tan, and deep and abiding passion for paddle boarding; he channels all of the bad boy charm and understated acting chops of James Dean with a collection of motorcycle jackets to prove it. And this week the pair are proving that California is more than just a state, it’s a state of mind, taking their particular bohemian joie de vivre to the chic streets of Paris.

The couple have been on a stylish tour of the City of Light all week, making one high fashion pitstop after the next, including an appearance at the exclusive Louis Vuitton dinner in honor of the brand’s latest handbag collaboration with artist Jeff Koons. But on Wednesday night they changed up the pace a bit, forsaking glamorous gatherings in favor of a quiet date night in the neighborhood of the Louvre, dining at wine bar Verjus.

RELATED PHOTOS: Jennifer Aniston Is PEOPLE’s 2016 World’s Most Beautiful Woman!

For their evening out, Jennifer and Justin took a break from the matchy-matchy style streak they’ve been having. The actress gave a slight twist on her typical collection of all-black dresses, mixing it up with a low-key maxi dress featuring a smattering of pink flowers all over, a knotted halter neckline, a low back, and a classy touch of exposed sideboob. Her husband, on the other hand, stayed true to his foolproof “winter from the waist down” fashion formula in a leather jacket, black t-shirt, and faded black jeans.

One other way Theroux switched things up? Rather than post a schmoopy Instagram with his girl as he had done several days prior, he posted a shot of the “Eifellas” (himself and The Leftovers creator Damon Lindelof) in front of the famed Paris landmark. But of course in Paris, there’s plenty of love to go around.

Buyers Upbeat at Paris Men’s Trade Shows

PARIS — With Japanese buyers back in force, a positive energy pulsed through the men’s trade fairs, Capsule, Man and Tranoi, held here in tandem with the men’s runway shows. While spends were flat on-year, buyers’ moods were upbeat.
“This is a good time in men’s wear,” said Wanda Colon, chief merchandising officer at Unkwn, an urban concept store targeting Florida’s 18-25 set.
“This show [Capsule] is a good integration of what’s happening in fashion now – a mix of very high with accessible, what big box stores are trying to do,” she continued. “To cultivate this youthful feeling, not necessarily young, but savvy, very active on social media. A lot of brand energy right now is coming from that. And stores are chasing these young, alternative independents because they’ve seen the energy and buying power of this customer.”
Trading on the youth influence as a launchpad, Capsule showed four labels voted into the show by followers of Highsnobiety.com. Tranoi curated Atelier, a space for young designers, at its inaugural Carreau de Temple show.

Harumi Klossowska de Rola Shows Her Designs in Paris

ALL THAT GLITTERS: While she moves on the sidelines of the fashion world and counts Haider Ackermann among her close friends, artist and jewelry designer Harumi Klossowska de Rola is rarely in the limelight.
That is exactly where she was to be found Sunday evening, however, with the opening of an exhibition of her work at the Van Cleef & Arpels-supported jewelry school just off Paris’ Place Vendôme.
As well as her animal-themed fine jewelry, the exhibition includes objects ranging from sculpted bronze lamps to a four-panel screen hand-covered in gold leaf and painted with a lion.
The eclectic crowd of guests at the event included Kylie Minogue, Kristin Scott-Thomas, Christian Louboutin, Elie Top, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli.
The daughter of the late artist Balthus and painter Setsuko Klossowska de Rola was asked by Van Cleef & Arpels to create an exhibition of her one-off jewelry pieces, and she chose to also show her sculptural work in order to highlight the bridges between fine art and jewelry.
“I would love to study at the school, there is so much I could learn here,” said Klossowska de Rola, who has no formal training in jewelry but has in the past collaborated with Chopard as well

Porter Classic Shows Off Indigo Cool at Paris Men’s Week

PARIS — Porter Classic has set up shop in Isetan Mitsukoshi’s Japan Store in Paris — showing and selling its garments for the first time outside Asia.
The brand, which was founded in 2007 by designer Katsuyuki Yoshida and his son Leo, is known for its use of traditional Japanese stitching techniques to create textured indigo garments.
The company has stocked the pop-up shop with a representative selection of indigo staples from its PC Classics line including stitched indigo jackets, pants and patchwork accessories in relaxed, contemporary cuts.
Garments made using the sashiko stitching technique feature a rippled texture. The kendo stitch — borrowed from Japanese boxing gear —is visually smoother but still adds a coarse contrast to the supple indigo when touched.
The brand is also showing a selection of special edition patchwork blazers made with vintage swatches from the designer’s collection.
The designer discovered the patched sashiko fabrics in a museum in northern Japan. “My father was touched by the way the material had been kept for and cared for over generations,” said Leo Yoshida at the pop-up’s opening reception Wednesday. “The fabric comes from farmers, and from moms who would sew things back together when they tore.”

‘Gentleman’ Thief Slips Away With $5M Jewelry Loot in Paris

TO CATCH A THIEF: A thief made away with jewelry worth more than 5 million euros, or $ 5.3 million at current exchange, in what is being described as one of the most deftly executed heists ever staged in Paris.
Two rings and two loose diamonds were stolen on the morning of Dec. 30 at a showroom on Rue de la Boétie in the French capital’s tony 8th arrondissement, a spokesman for the Paris police said on Thursday. He confirmed the reported value of the loot but was unable to provide any additional details.
The thief posed as a potential client during a private appointment at the De Grisogono showroom, according to French media reports. Drawing comparisons with fictional French gentleman thief Arsène Lupin, daily newspaper Le Parisien said the suspect discreetly swapped the precious pieces for copies and left without anyone noticing what had happened.
The matter has been referred to the Paris public prosecutor. Officials at De Grisogono did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
If confirmed, it would not be the first time the Geneva-based jeweler has been targeted by thieves in France. In 2013, robbers made away with a high jewelry necklace worth 2 million euros, or around $ 2.6 million,

Perrin Paris Files Lawsuit Against Philipp Plein

IN THE CLUTCH: Leather-goods maker Perrin Paris has filed a lawsuit against luxury sportswear firm Philipp Plein, requesting an injunction and significant damages for infringing its so-called “glove-clutch,” a design-patented model that the French firm describes as a marriage between its glove-making heritage and modern chic. The suit is pending at a court in Hamburg, Germany, Perrin Paris said.
Perrin Paris alleges that the Lugano, Switzerland-based firm known for its bejeweled leather and crystal-studded knits copied its Eiffel model glove-clutch. “It’s the exact duplicate, same size, same design, same concept — the hand receiving portion of our bags that we design-patented. They only added a skull,” said Michel Perrin, whose great-great grandmother founded the company in Saint-Junien with gloves as its core business.
Julie Macklowe carried the Philipp Plein clutch on the red carpet at the Met Gala in May.
“In the beginning, we contacted Philipp Plein out of court asking him to stop selling it. We were given the impression that they would remove it from distribution. But recently, we realized that they were continuing to sell them in their outlet stores, at a discounted price,” Perrin explained.
Before the defense was due in court, he said, the German firm contacted Perrin Paris asking for a settlement offer, which

Cruise Control: Chanel to Remain in Paris for Resort Show

FRENCH LESSONS: He’ll always have Paris — even during cruise season. Karl Lagerfeld is to parade his next cruise collection for Chanel in the French capital, reaffirming his attachment to the city and its importance for fashion, WWD has learned.
Chanel confirmed May 3 as the date of the show, but has yet to disclose the venue or other details.
Lagerfeld and Chanel recently privatized the Ritz Paris and staged three shows for the Métiers d’Art collection, a pre-fall range of ready-to-wear embellished by the specialty couture ateliers that Chanel owns. He dubbed it “Paris Cosmopolite” to evoke a time when elegant women from the world over converged on the mythic Place Vendôme hotel, established in 1898.
The Rue Cambon house has been a pioneer in staging itinerant shows and has taken its cruise collection as far afield as Seoul and Havana and its Métiers d’Art collection to Dallas, Edinburgh and Salzburg. Lagerfeld typically uses each destination to exalt a facet of the house’s lore — or to invent a new chapter.
But Paris remains a key font of inspiration for Lagerfeld, whose Métiers d’Art effort for Chanel in December 2015 was themed “Paris in Rome.” Staged at Cinecittà film studio No. 5, it boasted a

Cerruti 1881 to Open Temporary Paris Boutique

HERE TODAY: The high-end men’s prêt-à-porter label Cerruti 1881 will, over the coming days, open a temporary boutique in a prime, footfall-rich Paris street ahead of the opening of its new flagship next summer. The event also marks the kick off of the house’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 2017.
The 3,200 square feet store, at 51 Boulevard Haussmann in the city’s fashion district, is located across from Printemps and will house products from across the brand’s universe, including rtw, watches and jewelry, eyewear and accessories. There will also be an area dedicated to bespoke tailoring. Features in the minimalist space, which will stay open through July, include cement floors, industrial beams, light sculptures and modular fixtures.
Chief creative officer Jason Basmajian, who joined the house in October 2015, said the interiors have “an industrial-chic feel, but are housed in a grand Haussmannian classic structure.” The store, he added, is located on a busy crossroad “that is both decidedly Parisian, as well as international, with eight large windows that showcase the full universe of Cerruti.”
During the festive period some 10 million people are expected to pass through Boulevard Haussmann, where Galeries Lafayette is also located.
Founded in 1967 by Nino Cerruti, Cerruti 1881 has been part of the Hong Kong-based

Designers’ Christmas Trees Unveiled in Paris

‘TIS THE SEASON: Francis Kurkdjian, Ali Mahdavi and Jean-Claude Jitrois were among guests who turned out to the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris on Friday night to inspect Christmas trees they designed for an annual charity event organized by fashion journalist Marie-Christiane Marek.

Jean Paul Gaultier, Dior, Chanel, Elie Saab and Emanuel Ungaro are among other designers and fashion houses that have created 30 Christmas trees or artistic pieces to go under the tree that are to be auctioned off Monday night at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, and simultaneously on Drouotlive.com.

The 21st edition of the Sapins de Noël event is being held under the patronage of  Ralph Toledano, president of the Fédération Française de la Couture, and Pascal Morand, its executive president, and Montaigne Committee president Jean-Claude Cathalan.

French rising actress Marie-Ange Casta, alongside boxing champion Cyril Benzaquen, pushed a button in front of the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées to light the famous luxury thoroughfare.
Jitrois, who called Casta “an ambitious and talented young woman,” has been participating to the designer Christmas trees initatiative since its first edition. This year, he was inspired by the Tower of Babel. “Because everyone was speaking the same language,” he said, noting that his tree with a metal structure involves Swarovski crystals and leather fringes.

Guerlain Dispatches Barbers in Paris in Men’s Health Initiative

A CUT ABOVE: Have moustache, will travel. That’s Guerlain’s mantra this month as barbers shuttle around Paris offering men facial-hair trims in support of the Movember Foundation, a charity addressing such men’s health concerns as prostate and testicular cancers, mental health and suicide.
Throughout November, the foundation urges men grow to grow moustaches to raise awareness and funds for its cause.
Guerlain, the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned fragrance and cosmetics label, is offering trims for both moustaches and beards in two of its boutiques and via barbers who are being driven around the French capital in an electric truck.
The moustache trim going for 10 euros, or $ 10.75 at current exchange, and beard trim priced at 26 euros, or $ 28, are being carried out in partnership with the hair salon La Barbière de Paris. Full proceeds from the services will be donated to Movember France.
Last November, Guerlain — whose involvement in the program is being led again by its in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser — was the largest contributor to Movember’s cause in France, thanks to a team focusing on moustaches.
Guerlain has been running its social and environmental program, called Au Nom de la Beauté (or In the Name of Beauty), since 2007. The

Paris Hotels Set for Full Occupancy During Couture Week

NO VACANCY: Paris Couture Week and Euro 2016 are set to lift Paris’ hoteliers’ spirits, in the grim climate for tourism following the Paris and Brussels attacks.
Paris Couture Week, slated from July 3 to 7, is to coincide with the UEFA soccer tournament, which is to run for its part from June 10 to July 10. The quarterfinals match set for July 3 at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis outside Paris is to fall on kickoff day of Couture Week.
“We’re typically already at the highest level of occupancy during fashion week,” a spokeswoman for the Plaza Athénée said, expecting an even busier week this season due to Euro championship factor, based on the early feedback of the hotel’s booking department. Spokeswomen for the Royal Monceau and the Bristol Paris echoed the sentiment. (July 10, the day of the final match, is unavailable on the booking section of the Bristol Paris’ Web site.)
The Ritz Paris is still cornering its reopening date — initially planned on March 14 —  following a fire that broke out on the top floor of the hotel on Jan. 19. June 1 is the first date when guests can start booking on the hotel’s Web site, with

John Oliver Has A Profanity-Filled Message For Paris Attackers

John Oliver has an unequivocal message for those responsible for the terror attacks that killed more than 130 people in Paris on Friday: F**k you. 

Oliver started Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight” with a few words about the deadly assaults.

“There are a few things we can say for certain,” Oliver said before telling the audience he was about to unleash a “moment of premium cable profanity.”

“First, as of now, we know this attack was carried out by gigantic fucking arseholes, unconscionable flaming arseholes; possibly working with other fucking arseholes, definitely working in service of an ideology of pure arseholery,” Oliver said. “Second, and this goes almost without saying, fuck these arseholes, fuck them — if I may say – sideways.”

Oliver also offered some words of support for the people impacted by the tragedy.

“Nothing about what these arseholes are trying to do is going to work. France is going to endure,” he said.

Watch the clip above to see Oliver explain why.

Karl Lagerfeld Photo Expo Bows in Paris

PARIS — “He knows exactly what he has in the frame. There are no accidents, no surprises.”
So says Eric Pfrunder, image director of Chanel and co-curator of “Karl Lagerfeld, a Visual Journey,” a sprawling and diverse photo exhibition that opens at the Pinacothèque de Paris art gallery here Friday and runs through March 20.
Pfrunder knows better than anyone. In January 1987, when Chanel’s couturier complained to him about the quality of some press-kit photos, Pfrunder dared him do better. “I said to Karl, ‘OK, now you do it,’” he recalled on Thursday during a walk-through of the spare, dimly lit showcase.
Of course, Lagerfeld has never stopped shooting – campaigns, editorials and artistic imagery — always choosing the best location, the best lighting and without any waffling, according to Pfrunder.
“Karl has an eye,” he marveled. “He’s not taking 300 shots. He’s doing five, maybe six. Generally, it’s the first frame that is the best. He’s very fast because he has one vision, and that’s it.”
While Lagerfeld is reluctant to describe his photographic style, Pfrunder cited a storytelling approach, and a distinct “atmosphere” heightened by strong contrast. “When it’s black, he likes it deep black,” he said, pointing to a never-before-seen nude series of

Opening Ceremony Brings Mission Chinese Food to Paris

HOT STUFF: Humberto Leon and Carol Lim stirred together some of the fashion pack’s favorite ingredients – a hot young chef and a smartphone with razor-sharp picture quality – for a dinner in Paris celebrating the new partnership between their Opening Ceremony label and Samsung on a special accessory collection.
The duo flew in Angela Dimayuga, executive chef of cult New York eaterie Mission Chinese Food, to cook up a meal for friends and editors in town for Paris Fashion Week. “Carol and I love food, and we’re not shy about it,” said Leon. “It’s super exciting to have everyone be able to experience this.”
Dimayuga whipped up a feast including braised peanut and woodear mushroom, drunken fish en papillote, mapo tofu and tea fragrance rice for guests including Leigh Lezark and Geordon Nicol, Susanna Lau, Leaf Greener and Kenzo chief executive officer Eric Marechalle.
The Chongqing chicken wings, packed with “explosive chili,” lived up to their billing. Lim confessed she knows the menu by heart.

Document Magazine Hosts Paris Dinner

FANTASY DINNER: Document magazine and stylist Olivier Rizzo hosted a dinner in Paris on Saturday night to celebrate the New York-based title’s fall issue.
There was an intimate vibe in the salon of Lapérouse, the art-stuffed, 18th-century restaurant on the Left Bank where the event took place.
Miuccia Prada, Raf Simons, Kris Van Assche and Simon Porte Jacquemus were among the attendees.
“It’s like a dream. It’s so perfect,” said Nick Vogelson, who cofounded Document with James Valeri, speaking of the guest list. “We chose this venue because Miuccia presented her first Miu Miu collection here.”
Jacquemus had an addition to his own fantasy dinner invitee lineup.
“I would add my cousin. It would be fun to have a child joining the table,” the designer said, referring to seven-year-old Jean, who made a sensation opening Jacquemus’ spring show. “Everything is seen differently through the eyes of a child.”
Has the experience been life-changing for Jean?
“He’s just happy he’s skipping school,” Jacquemus said with a laugh, agreeing people will keep an eye out for what’s up next for Jean and Hudson Kroenig, Karl Lagerfeld’s godson, today’s It kids of the fashion world.
Meanwhile, guests indulged on foie gras, beef and caramel soufflé – the restaurant’s signature dessert. And after

Pas de Calais Sets First Paris Shop

PIED-À-TERRE: Pas de Calais, a Japanese brand named after the northern region of France, celebrated the opening of its first flagship in Paris’ trendy Marais area on Wednesday.
“The store will help us raise brand awareness in Europe, where our business is not as large as in the U.S.,” said the label’s chief executive officer Kobayashi Tsukasa, noting the Continent accounts for about 30 percent of total turnover at present.
Designer Yukari Suda said the fall collection was directly inspired by Pas de Calais’ moody weather, which translated into various shades of gray, white as well as creamy tones.
Cashmere, silk and organic, hand-woven Indian Khadi dominated the graceful lineup packed with practical and easy options.
Tie-dyed silk dresses and bathrobe-y cashmere coats stood out in particular.
“I always wanted to create comfortable garments that feel soft on the skin,” said Suda, who is also an avid collector of vintage lace from Pas de Calais, which she incorporates into her collections.
Pieces retail from $ 250 for a top; dresses average between $ 400 and $ 600, while coats start at $ 1,000.
The roughly 800-square-foot unit at 15 Rue de Poitou, which replaces former multibrand store Shine, matches the brand’s organic, artisanal feel, featuring textured walls, rustic, wooden furniture and hand-laid wooden floors resembling an arty jigsaw puzzle.

Carine Roitfeld Unveils Uniqlo Line in Paris

FEELING TIGHT: Carine Roitfeld — one of France’s most famous editors and fashion personalities — presented her 40-piece collection with Japanese retail giant Uniqlo to editors and friends on Wednesday during Paris Fashion Week. The line is set to hit stores worldwide on Oct. 28.
“I love the details,” said Roitfeld, grabbing a panther faux fur coat to show off its reversible side. “There are pockets everywhere, including on tight-fitting skirts. It’s a no-brainer but I love it.”
“I am placing an order right away. I am going to start wearing tight-fit skirts,” said Inès de la Fressange, who’s done her fifth collection for the retail giant, and calls Naoki Takizawa, Uniqlo’s creative director her “Japanese twin brother.”
Roitfeld paid tribute to the fellow French style icon: “Our styles are crisscrossing and complementary. A peacoat paired with a pencil skirt, I should have thought about it earlier,” she said with a laugh.
“We have the two most beautiful pearls of Paris,” said Paris-based fashion consultant Jean-Jacques Picart, referring to Roitfeld and de la Fressange.
“They’re two exceptional French women, with strong personalities: They are both very popular; very different but they have the same values.”
Picart, who counts Uniqlo among his clients, predicts the 179 euros,

There is Nothing Dead in This Grandiose Former Funeral Establishment of the City of Paris.

2015-09-27-1443379118-5206737-104mainpix.JPG

Art Galore.

The 104, as it is called, spelled out in French as Le Centquatre-Paris, is a multimedia art center partly funded by the city of Paris. Located in a vast compound of gigantic halls and structures, it houses dance floors, exhibit halls, stores, libraries, workshop classes and stages. Calling itself an artistic and cultural factory, the place is geared towards public service — Art as a public service is definitely a great concept!

On any given day a buzz of artists, dancers, yogis, actors, painters, sculptors, fill the cavernous space with laughter and life. Visitors pop up at the arts library, shoppers stroll through the Emmaus thrifstore. It’s at the same time neighborhoods hang-out for young skaters, and an elite art space for openings and happenings.

Its success is real and tangible. You can witness art in various forms glow right under your eyes, and see how art really is a street expression in its best form. Over 60 percent of the performing artists at the 104 are not French.

2015-09-27-1443380423-538875-104logo.png

The fall schedule of exhibition is heavy with many new shows coming up: dance performances, visual arts, circus acts, theater and music fests. Solo acts or ensemble pieces, no matter what month you are able to go, several art forms will be on display or happening, including a ball in April open to all. About 50 artists in residence are planned to offer their creations for the 2015-2016 season.

An official opening was held Sept. 26 to present the 25,000 square feet of available galleries and open spaces to the public for the new season. On Oct. 3, a Nuit Blanche (White Night) is planned, when the space will stay open all night. The calendar is so full of events that it would be impossible to see and hear everything offered to each senses.

Les Pompes-Funèbres : From Death to Life.

Located on the site of a former municipal undertaker, the name comes from the original entrance’s address, at 104 rue d’Aubervilliers. This was not the mom and pop funeral home where one would visit one deceased family member in a flower-filled room and weep. This was where hundreds of horse-drawn hearses used to park and be maintained. Now an artistic factory, it churns out events and gatherings at a vertiginous speed.

The buildings were erected in 1873 by the diocese, ruled by religious staff; later on, with the separation of state and church, the city created in 1905 the Service municipal des pompes funèbres (Municipal Service of Funeral Process), considered at the times as a liberal progress, as it meant that from then on, regardless of religion or condition, everyone was due a proper funeral.

Before that, divorced women, suicide victims, atheists, all were to be buried at night without any dignified ceremony or family members present. The municipal monopole was taking care of everything, from coffins to hearses, from porters to cemeteries. One of the important rituals after a death was to wrap the front door of the building where the deceased laid with massive black curtains on each side of the front door – those were called the pompes.

This black veil was used until the 1980s. The Municipal Monopole was still in practice until the middle of 1997. Since then, the ceremonial is now left to family and private companies.

2015-09-27-1443379187-2043800-104hearse.jpg

At the Pompes Funèbres, 27,000 hearses were in use, with a staff of 1,400, only forty of which were women. Carpenters, wood workers, steel workers, mechanics, auto body specialists, seamstresses, cooks for the on-site workers’ cafeteria. Civil servants, horse caterers and other employees were lodged on the premises. There was even a football team, musicians, and firefighters dedicated to the ensemble of constructions. The funeral parlor did not handle corpses – that was done in private parlors. Except in times of war, when the bodies of soldiers were given back to their families.

Creativity at its Best.

So the place was truly always alive (pun intended) in a way, but for some 15 years when it was closed down, before the re-birth as an art center in 2008. When I last visited at the beginning of September, I saw several artists using the multi-levels center floor as a dance stage and yoga space, kids running around huge sculptures, workers having a sandwich on beach chairs, the feel of community involvement was very tangible.

2015-09-27-1443379310-119530-104weipei.jpg

At each end of the space giant art pieces jetted to the open sky – this is a place that could easily accommodate one of Louise Bourgeois giant spider sculptures. Not every art space can. An enormous funky piece made of hundreds of bicycles wheels and frames in a sculpture by Chinese Al Weiwei named “Stacked” was taking one end of the forum – representing the transportation mode of his native country, while a metal snake of rust-color boxes was being installed for the upcoming vernissage.

2015-09-27-1443379253-9869926-104sculpture.jpg

Concerts for all ages and all style are planned for the fall schedule. Several art shows will also open at the various venues encompassed in the buildings. It’s a real artistic community all housed under one roof. A glass roof that is.

The architecture is reminiscent of the former market halles (market halls) that were once famously popular in the center of the capital. Why waste beautiful edifices? The eco friendly turn-around of the classic buildings is a testament of the creativity of its new users, all artists.

Side Shows.

A food truck selling pizzas is permanently parked inside the Centquatre. The Emmaus store resales clothes and furniture pieces at very low prices, and involves members of the community to work there. Canvas beach chairs invite people to lounge at will. Several corners are meant to be used as sitting areas, or even picnic settings.

The café’s menu is full of childhood favorites, such as toasts, soft eggs, fries and milk-shakes. It is named the Café Caché (the Hidden Café). Another resting place for food is the Grand Central restaurant, the loft-like space offering traditional French dishes at a medium range price – think sausage and lentils, beef cheeks, mussels and fries, rabbit with granny smith apples, steak with Béarnaise sauce, etc..

2015-09-27-1443379498-4706031-grandcentral.jpg

The CentQuatre had a challenge — to fill the enormous spaces spread on several city blocks, and despite its sheer size, the place works — it is both a community haven and a convivial space for all. Despite being located in an untrendy area of Paris, that has not stopped Parisians of every corner to make the trip for the sake of art. Over half a million visitors/spectators came by last year. Bravo!

Wool Gets the Spotlight at Paris Museum

PARIS – A flock of sheep invaded the Palais de Tokyo in Paris this weekend as part of a global awareness campaign orchestrated by The Woolmark Company.
The three-day event, ending Sunday, includes artwork made of wool, a photo exhibit about the natural fibre, and a series of dance performances showing off wool’s versatile nature.
Brands, including Adidas, which developed running apparel based on wool, and Dormeuil, supplier of fine wool fabrics to bespoke tailors including Cifonelli, Camps de Luca and Brioni, set up stands to let visitors get physical.
WWD caught up with Peter Ackroyd, global strategy advisor for The Woolmark Company, at the event.
WWD: What is so special about wool?
Peter Ackroyd: Its diversity. It can be made into suits, blankets or sportswear, and we think we don’t even know all the end-uses of wool. But it’s not only a very diverse fibre — at the end of its life it goes back to earth and enriches the soil. It doesn’t end up as landfill. We put a wool sweater next to an acrylic sweater in Prince of Wales’ garden. In five months, the wool sweater has almost entirely gone back to nature, the acrylic one — you just shook it and put it

All that and more will be reflected in “Karl Lagerfeld: A Visual Journey,” an exhibition of his photography slated to open Oct. 16 and run until March 20 at the Pinacothèque de Paris, a private museum just behind the Madeleine Church.
The showcase is being chosen by publisher Gerhard Steidl and Eric Pfrunder, image director at Chanel and one of the designer’s chief image collaborators, who in 1987 encouraged Lagerfeld to try his hand shooting the photos for a Chanel press kit. That would open up a new career path for the German designer, who would go on to shoot campaigns for Chanel, Fendi, Dior Homme and others, along with editorial shoots, and a slew of artistic projects for exhibitions or books.
“People always want to know about my style of photography. I can’t answer that,” according to Lagerfeld. “That’s up to viewers to decide. I don’t have a style, but several, or none. You should never stay still, neither in life, nor in fashion, nor in photography.”
Similarly, Lagerfeld experiments with all kinds of photographic and printing

Zoe Cassavetes Said Directing Film for Ritz Paris

PUTTIN’ ON THE RITZ?: Could Zoe Cassavetes have directed a film for the Ritz relaunch?
Word has it the director of “Broken English” has shot a film involving fashion people and designers for the reopening of Paris’ mythic, five-star hotel.
A spokeswoman for the Ritz Paris had no comment.
There’s a lot of anticipation for the reopening — the hotel is officially taking reservations from March 14— billed as the biggest refurbishment in the history of the 117-year-old establishment.
Cassavetes, the daughter of  actor and filmmaker John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands, is very much plugged to the fashion world. Her fashion credentials include being a muse of Marc Jacobs, participating in Miu Miu’s “Women’s Tales” — and being a front-row regular at fashion shows.

YSL Safari Jacket to Get Paris Showcase

SAND STORM: French stylist, designer and collector Olivier Châtenet is hoping to share his passion for vintage fashion with the world. He has assembled around 15 looks incorporating the famous YSL saharienne, or safari jacket, from 1969 to around 1975. They will be on display at the Salon du Vintage, a vintage fair held on Oct. 17 and 18 at the Carreau du Temple in Paris.
“[The sarahienne] had various variations including trench coat, dress, jumpsuit, with lacing, and a palette of sandy tones,”Châtenet explained. “The first one was worn by Veruschka in Vogue Paris in 1968. Then, it was part of the collection in 1969.”
Considered a specialist on Yves Saint Laurent, Châtenet recently worked as a consultant on Bertrand Bonello’s “Saint Laurent” biopic. He owns more than 3,000 pieces from Yves Saint Laurent. “I stopped counting after 3,200,” he said with a laugh.

7 Childhood Trends From The 2015 Paris Couture Week Runways

Haute couture is often viewed as spectacle rather than practical wear. But here we are at the end of Paris Couture Fashion Week, thinking of all the things we could wear from designers like Elie Saab and Fendi

If there’s one trend we noticed it’s that some of our childhood outfits made it down the runway. Remember the Champagne-colored Jessica McClintock gowns from junior prom? Ralph & Russo is trying to make them a thing. Oh, and striped tights? Looks like Jean Paul Gaultier is calling for a resurgence. 

Check out the childhood trends that sauntered down the runway and be inspired to play some dress-up this weekend.

Paris: A Holiday That is Always With You

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Paris Review Hosts Spring Revel

MAKE MINE EXTRA DRY, PLEASE: Blame on the pre-and-post dinner open bars, or the crowd’s thirst for a George Plimpton-worthy good time, but The Paris Review’s Spring Revel lived up to its billing once again Tuesday night.
As the literary pub’s editors Lorin Stein, Louis Begley, Mona Simpson, Richard Ford, Katie Roiphe, Gary Shteyngart, Kurt Anderson, Tao Lin, Emma Cline and other scribes worked the room, former Massachusetts Governor William Weld recalled shooting the breeze decades ago with Plimpton and Hunter S. Thompson during the magazine’s 62 White Street days. “George and I shared an affinity for three-cushion billiards,” he said with a laugh. “Hunter admired my style because he thought I was more of a dissolute than I really was.
“When I was 17, I worked in Paris near the Place Vendôme. We all lived in Paris and lived and died for that,” he said somewhat wistfully.
Then fellow Harvard Hasty Pudding performer Sharon Hoge buzzed by for a quick hello and to remind him of his collegiate cross-dressing days singing, “Career girls are independent” on stage. Weld explained, “So my preparation for my career in politics was prancing around on stage wearing women’s clothes and high heels.”
“And a huge brassiere,” she

Here’s A Sneak Peak Of Kendall Jenner In Vogue Paris, And She Looks Absolutely Gorgeous

With all the hype surrounding the Kimye wedding, it’s hard to believe that anything else is going on with the Kardashian-Jenner clan at the moment.

It turns out, however, that is not the case. On the contrary, it’s been a pretty huge week for Kendall Jenner, too. Kris Jenner took to Instagram Wednesday with a sneak peek of her 18-year-old daughter’s spread in the upcoming issue of Vogue Paris, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier. Captioned “PARIS VOGUE June/July 2014 Wow @kendalljenner stunning!! Congratulations!! #proudmama,” Jenner is obviously ecstatic over the news. And we have to admit, she looks absolutely gorgeous in the photos.

This has been a whirlwind year for Kendall, who has already walked the runways at New York and Paris Fashion Weeks and starred in her own Vogue US selfie-inspired spread back in February.
