Richard Quinn Collaborates With Liberty on an Accessories Collection

ROUND TWO: Richard Quinn has put his personal, colorful touch on Liberty London’s floral prints for a limited-edition accessories collection that will launch on July 11. Quinn and Liberty first collaborated in 2017 after Quinn used a Liberty print for his graduate show. The following year, the department store hosted Quinn’s runway debut.
The designer had free access to Liberty’s extensive archive, which consists of 45,000 prints. He chose prints from the Sixties, Seventies and the Nineties and modernized them, magnifying and mashing them up on tote bags, purses, cardholders and scarves.
Quinn also reintroduced the Liberty logo in his own cursive handwriting during his spring 2018 show and it has been printed and embroidered on the front of his accessories collection. Prices range from 70 pounds for a silk scarf to 695 pounds for Liberty’s signature Marlborough tote with Quinn’s distorted prints.
“We, at Liberty, have always prided ourselves on discovering and fostering new talent, as our founder Arthur Lasenby Liberty sourced artists and craftsmen from around the world,” said Amelia Hornblow, director of product at Liberty.
“We are thrilled to be working with Richard Quinn, a great talent, whose collection and designs feature color and print that embody the Liberty Spirit.”
The collection will

Richard Branson’s Son Warns of ‘Civil Unrest’ on British Virgin Islands Following Hurricane Irma

Richard Branson‘s son kept his social media followers informed in the wake of Hurricane Irma, warning that prisoners on the British Virgin Islands have escaped and are armed ahead of his journey back to help in the relief efforts.

Sam Branson, who rode out the storm on the family’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands, posted video messages and photos from the Caribbean showing the devastation from Irma.

In a video on Sunday, Sam said, “I’ve been getting some updates on the ground out there on the British Virgin Islands and it’s really sad to say that there is a lot of civil unrest.”

He continued, “Unfortunately some of the prisoners have escaped and are now armed.”

The 32-year-old warned that those sending supply boats to aid the area should have security and get the latest information from officials for their own safety.

“I don’t want to panic anyone but it’s really important people are aware of the situation there,” Sam said. “Some areas are okay, some aren’t. Just get the right information. It’s just incredibly tragic.”

Sam made his way to San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Monday before sharing that he was heading back to the British Virgin Islands to help in the relief efforts.

In a blog post on Virgin.com, Sam’s sister Holly wrote that “people have been left with nothing.”

“My brother Sam is currently travelling to the BVI with supplies and aid, ranging from nappies and clothing to water purification tablets and tarpaulin for shelter,” she wrote along with a photo of the two embracing. “It’s been very hard to gain an understanding of the situation on the ground with power on the islands still down, but he will be keeping you all updated as much as possible via his Instagram account.”

The massive storm destroyed much of Richard’s private island last week as it ripped through the Caribbean earlier.

The British billionaire and Virgin Group founder, 67, also headed to Puerto Rico after hunkering down in his Necker Island wine cellar, but announced in a Monday blog post that he will soon return to the British Virgin Islands to help rebuild after the storm devastated parts of the Caribbean.

“Much of the buildings and vegetation on Necker has been destroyed or badly damaged,” Branson wrote.

“This story is about the tens of thousands of people who have lost their homes and their livelihoods. We have spent the past two days visiting team members who live on Virgin Gorda and as many people as possible, distributing aid, water and supplies.”

He added: “We have seen first-hand just how ferocious and unforgiving this storm was.”

Richard Jaeckel, Hollywood’s Man of Character

Richard Jaeckel, Hollywood’s Man of Character


Character actor Richard Jaeckel worked five decades in Hollywood alongside the industry’s biggest names. Noted for tough-guy portrayals, he appeared in such classic westerns and war films as Sands of Iwo Jima (1949), The Gunfighter (1950), 3:10 to Yuma (1957), and The Dirty Dozen (1967). Bringing strength and integrity to his roles, he was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Sometimes a Great Notion (1970). A World War II veteran and Merchant Marine, he was respected in the surfing and fitness communities for his ageless athleticism. His performance as Turk in Come Back, Little Sheba (1952) was groundbreaking for iron-pumping actors wanting to be taken seriously for their dramatic abilities. This revealing portrait of the life of a working character actor covers Jaeckel’s noteworthy career through each of his film and television appearance, from Guadalcanal Diary (1943) to Baywatch (1994). Recollections and behind the scenes stories from those he knew and worked with offer an in-depth look at the dedication and professionalism it takes to make it in Hollywood.
