Alberta Ferretti Teams With Luisa Via Roma on Holiday Sweater

MILAN — Say it with a sweater.
In keeping with the success of her Rainbow Week knits — the range of sweaters with the days of the week which made their debut on the brand’s pre-fall catwalk in January — Alberta Ferretti has developed a special style for the holiday season.
A red cashmere crewneck sweater showing the wording “Merry Christmas” in ivory-white will be sold in exclusive at luxury online fashion shopping destination luisaviaroma.com starting from Nov. 17 at noon.
The sweater, which will be available for women, men and children, will retail at 295 euros for the children’s version and at 440 euros for the adult option.
In the last few months, the Alberta Ferretti brand developed special editions of the Rainbow Week sweater, including a style celebrating fashion influencer Chiara Ferragni’s 30th birthday anniversary last May and the one created for Milanese retailer La Rinascente introduced last September during Milan Fashion Week.

Belstaff Teams With the Bloodhound Project on Jacket and Sunglasses

NEED FOR SPEED: Belstaff has teamed with The Bloodhound Project on a limited-edition jacket and sunglasses.
The Bloodhound Project is aimed at building a car that can set a new World Land Speed record of 1,000 miles an hour. The Bloodhound SSC, in development since 2008, is a supersonic machine comprised of a Formula One car, jet and spaceship. It has been designed with a jet engine and a rocket.
It is set to make its first run in public at Cornwall Airport Newquay in England on Thursday and will be driven by Andy Green, the current land speed record holder, who set a world record in October 1997 where he and his Thrust SSC team traveled at 763.035 mph.
“Andy and the team are exposed to extreme conditions including sun, heat and sand,” said Belstaff’s creative director Delphine Ninous. “We had to look to create a UV-protective material that is breathable and durable, with low flammability. The fabric is a double-sided stretch cotton ensuring ease of movement. The sunglasses we developed with Imatta to ensure they are protective for the extreme desert conditions, with technologically advanced lenses.”
The four-pocket jacket features a stand-up collar, reflective detailing and a hidden orange hood. There is also a

Bibhu Mohapatra Teams Up With HSN for ‘Murder on the Orient Express’

HSN and 20th Century Fox tapped designer Bibhu Mohapatra to create a capsule collection tied to the release of “Murder on the Orient Express,” the remake of the classic Agatha Christie novel premiering this week with a star-studded cast, including the film’s director Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Daisy Ridley. Mohapatra will make his debut on a smaller screen tonight, to sell the capsule called Celeste by Bibhu he designed for the film tie-up at 9 p.m. on HSN.
Mohapatra was contacted several months ago about the project. “They came with a whole research package and said, ‘This is your project, and we want you to do it,’ because they followed my work,” said Mohapatra, who is based in New York but was born in India, and launched his eveningwear-based collection in 2009. “They thought that, given the story and the time it’s set in, I would be a good person to come up with the capsule collection inspired by the movie and its characters. It’s beautifully cast and beautifully done. And the best part is they shared their entire research for the film and costume and art direction.”
The limited-edition collection includes a faux-fur cape and stoles,

Nicole Miller Teams With Puppies Behind Bars for Limited-Edition Dog Accessories

OUT OF THE DOG HOUSE: Nicole Miller has linked with Puppies Behind Bars, an organization that teaches inmates to train service dogs for wounded war veterans, and canines for explosives detection for law enforcement. Most of the puppies enter the prison when they are eight weeks old and remain there for 24 months. To help spread the word about the group’s efforts, the designer has created a $ 40 dog bowl and a $ 20 phone case with all of the proceeds going to Puppies Behind Bars. Miller will host an event for the group on Oct. 17 in her SoHo flagship. Dogs from Puppies Behind Bars will be on hand, and guests are welcome to bring their own dogs as well.
Miller initially collaborated with the nonprofit years ago, creating dog collars for the organization. She also had an honorary dog at one point and the inmate who was training the dog wrote to her periodically to tell her about its progress. “The inmates train the dogs, which I think is fantastic therapy for the inmates. But apparently, my dog was not very happy about being locked up. So after he was there a year they took him out because he was

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.

“The exhibition includes a mirror box that showcases Natalia Stuyk’s work. As part of this installation, the audience will come across a wall where people can leave powerful messages and words of inspiration over two days — the responses left will then become their own piece of art, and a central focus to the exhibition,” said Kirsty Hathaway, Refinery 29’s executive branded content director in

Renzo Rosso Teams With Andrea Bocelli for a Charity Project

MILAN — Italian entrepreneur Renzo Rosso — founder of Diesel and of the OTB Group — and tenor Andrea Bocelli have joined forces and pledged their respective foundations in a charity project. The Only the Brave Foundation and Andrea Bocelli Foundation will rebuild the “Giacomo Leopardi” school in Sarnano, a historic Medieval town located in the region of Marche. The building and the area around it were deeply affected by the earthquake that hit central Italy last August.
“We wanted to help…for a long time now,” Rosso said. “Our philosophy is to follow the initiatives we support from the beginning till the end guaranteeing the respect of timing and investments,” he added, mentioning the restoration of Ponte di Rialto bridge in Venice in 2013 as an example.
Bocelli sounded confident about the success of the project, also considering the previous initiatives his foundation has been involved in since 2011, such as the construction of five other schools in five years.
The restoration work of Sarnano’s school has already been planned and will be started in the upcoming days.

Trump Administration’s ‘Alternative Facts’ Inspires Baseball Team’s Pig Mascot Name

Kellyanne Conway’s comment on “alternative facts” has already gone down in political folklore.

It’s now being further preserved in the shape of Minnesota baseball team The St. Paul Saints’ new pig mascot — which it has named Alternative Fats, the Star Tribune reports.

The porker follows previous pigs Little Red Porkette, Stephen Colboar, Boarack Ohama, Kim Lardashian, Kevin Bacon, and Mackleboar as the side’s lucky charm.

Club officials revealed its new mascot’s name via a statement online Wednesday, which itself was packed with what are undoubtedly also alternative facts.

Alternative Fats will enter the field each game like no other pig before him, with a white ground covering draped from his mansion-style pigpen to home plate for the billions of Saints fans to shower him with love and admiration,” it read.

“Alternative Fats will be so HUUUUGE it will make all other pigs jealous,” the press release continued, before claiming the swine would “go down in the pantheon of the greatest mascot names in the history of sports.”

Other suggestions not to make the cut included Boar’d of Trump, Ham Jong Un and Pigimir Putin.

Conway, one of President Donald Trump’s advisers, initially made the comment in January while defending White House press secretary Sean Spicer to NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet The Press.”

The Saints have also spoofed that encounter with this YouTube video:

Blushington Teams With Tucker by Gaby Basora for All-Day Trunk Show

UPTOWN GABFEST: Women buzzing by Blushington’s Upper East Side location Thursday had the added bonus of checking out spring styles from Tucker by Gaby Basora, and meeting the designer.
“The Sugar Detox” author Brooke Alpert was one of the 40 women who picked up a blouse during the all-day trunk show. Having gone from having a lot of wholesale accounts to being largely direct-to-customers, Basora said events such as the one at Blushington are “really great since people have been e-mailing inquiring where they might be able to try things on and feel the fabrics. We’ve been having a nice turnout doing little collaborations with people that we adore.”
As one brand owned by Resonance’s Lawrence D. Lenihan and Joseph Ferrara, Basora’s company is based in the West 28th Street building that once housed The Tunnel nightclub. The designer plans to use the facility’s bleacher seating for readings and other special events that will include a shopping element. With many people short on free time, it can be difficult to find time for both, Basora said.
Having recently attended a Women in Innovation Forum where BareMinerals’ founder Leslie Blodgett was among the speakers, Basora said, “It’s an interesting time right now with people

Mytheresa.com Teams With Miu Miu on Capsule, Fashion Film

SHARK TALES: In retailers’ ongoing battle for exclusivity and newness, Mytheresa.com is partnering with Miu Miu to launch an exclusive capsule collection for spring 2017.
The line, a colorful concoction of Miu Miu signatures, features ready-to-wear, as well as handbags and footwear, and will land at Mytheresa.com on April 26. Focusing on bright prints and girly embellishments, the capsule captures the playful spirit that is Prada’s sister label’s signature.
Among the standouts are the brand’s popular ballet flats and slides updated in pastel-hued shearling, and trousers and shirts done in bright floral or polka dot prints.
To introduce the new collection, the Munich-based e-tailer has teamed with Danny Sangra, a Central Saint Martin’s graduate and established director, artist and illustrator, to produce a short film called “Shark.”

In line with Miuccia Prada’s flair for drama, the two-minute short features two female protagonists sharing their life experiences in a swimming pool. Dressed in matching brightly colored, embellished sweaters and Sixties-inspired printed skirts, one shares her wish to become a synchronized swimmer, while the other is afraid of water due to a past experience with a shark.

Kenneth Cole Teams With Aloe Blacc on Find Your Bold Campaign

Kenneth Cole is searching for the next big thing in music.
The designer, along with his fragrance licenser Parlux, has teamed with recording artist Aloe Blacc and Indaba Music for the “Find Your Bold” campaign. “Find Your Bold” is a talent search to discover up-and-coming musicians — the grand-prize-winner will collaborate with Blacc on a new original track.
The campaign is designed to bolster visibility and sales for Black Bold, Cole’s latest fragrance that was released last year.
“The program is very authentic for Kenneth Cole because he is so supportive of the arts — he works very hard on the board of Sundance [Film Festival], and he’s a great philanthropist,” said Donald J. Loftus, president of Parlux Fragrances Ltd. “In line with that, he’s going to help a young artist realize his dream in a great creative process.”
The track, to be recorded in Blacc’s studio, will be released on iTunes and Spotify, along with a music video on Blacc’s YouTube channel. Kenneth Cole Fragrances will also grant the winner a $ 5,000 gift to further pursue the arts.

Submissions for the contest close on May 10, and entries will be reviewed and selected by Blacc and Cole.

Sacai Teams With Linda Farrow on See-Now-Buy-Now Range

NEW VISION: In a first for both companies, luxury eyewear label Linda Farrow has collaborated with Sacai on the launch of a see-now-buy-now line of sunglasses.
The collection made its debut on the runway at Sacai’s fall show and was available moments later on Net-a-porter.com.
Designer Chitose Abe applied her signature technique of cutting and splicing pieces to create interesting hybrids for four classic eyewear shapes. She re-created classic aviators and round and square-framed sunglasses by fusing sleek, silver metal frames with acetate ones, in a palette of navy, black and white.

“I like to play with the most authentic, pure form of a product and to find ways to create something new and unexpected that still feels real,” said Abe. “My goal was to create sunglasses that I’d personally love to wear.”
All styles retail for 285 pounds, or $ 435.

Sacai has been increasingly focusing on expanding its accessories offer over the last few seasons.

SoulCycle Teams With Free City for Apparel Collab

The ath-leisure trend of 2016 is still going strong and one of the originators of the wear-your-gym-clothes-to-brunch ethos is staking further claim into the category with a new collaboration.
SoulCycle, the cult indoor cycling studio is debuting its latest apparel collection with Free City on Dec. 9. The 10-piece collection includes zip-up hoodies in cool washed, long-sleeved shirts with graphic detail, two muscle tanks, both cropped and regular sweatpants, and a hooded silver anorak with fake fur detail. Pricing starts at $ 68 for the tank and goes up to $ 385 for the coat on soul-cycle.com.
This is the first-time SoulCycle has partnered with Free City. SoulCycle tapped into the burgeoning workout culture, and began building out its apparel business three years ago with an eponymous line. The line is incredibly popular among its riders. The firm has previously collaborated with Ramy Brook, Shopbop, Milly by Michelle Smith and the CFDA. Earlier this year, the fitness firm partnered with Target on a 10-city tour featuring three-day weekend events taught by certified SoulCycle instructors. The Target collaboration also included a Target x SoulCycle pop-up shop with specialized merch.
The company is expanding in several directions. In September, SoulCycle launched its first-ever men’s fitness apparel line.

The Hearst-owned magazine has launched a men’s jewelry line that’s available exclusively at more than 500 Macy’s stores nationwide and at macys.com.
The line, which was developed in partnership with SHR Jewelry Group, includes more than 70 pieces that are divided into four categories: day, evening, work and sport and adventure. The assortment retails from $ 50 to $ 1,500.
To bring an editorial touch to the collection, each piece will come with a style guide from Esquire editors explaining what the piece is made of and offering styling suggestions.
“Esquire’s reputation as a known fashion authority enables us to bring a unique and stylish point of view to men’s jewelry,” notes Glen Ellen Brown, vice president of Hearst Brand Development. “The collection’s accessibility and versatility help men look good without looking like they’re trying. SHR and Macy’s are fantastic partners who understand the Esquire sensibility and its appeal.”
This isn’t Esquire’s first foray into product. In September, the brand partnered with Farouk Systems Inc. on The Esquire Ultimate Grooming Collection, which is available in professional salons.

Carolina Herrera Teams With Mytheresa.com for Capsule Collection

Even after 35 years in business, Carolina Herrera is still all about ingenuity.
With that in mind, the designer will use Danny Sangra’s short film titled, “Something Unpredictable,” to launch a limited-edition capsule collection with Mytheresa.com.
Kat Clements headlines what is supposed to be a mockumentary of a fashion film that was shot at the Elyx House in the Hollywood Hills. The Mytheresa.com x Carolina Herrera capsule collection will make its debut May 10 on the e-tailer’s site.
Clements also makes an appearance in “Goldbricks In Bloom,” the feature film Sangra wrote and directed. Due out in September, the movie also features Zosia Mamet, Waris Ahluwalia and Jake Hoffman. The Central Saint Martins-trained Sangra has created a social satire about the rise and fall of a New York painter amidst a self-obsessed group of disenchanted young creatives. He is also working on another short film for Mytheresa with Balenciaga.
Herrera drew upon her heritage for the capsule collection for the e-tailer. In doing so, she wanted to evoke the essence and craftsmanship of her New York atelier and more specifically to reflect the vibrant spirit of her first runway show in 1981. Bianca Jagger, Andy Warhol, C.Z. Guest and Diana Vreeland were among the

New York-based Fancy Teams With Hermès

NEW YORK — With Carlos Slim Domit, Kering and Ashton Kutcher among its investors, Fancy has a new tie to the world of luxury — a limited collaboration with Hermès.
The SoHo-based shopping app clued in some of its 10 million-plus global shoppers to three customized Hermès finds — the Kick, $ 780 men’s slip-on sport shoes with an Hermès print; the Nautilus, a $ 1,670 caplets pen, and Le Flaneur d’Hermès, an $ 11,900 carbon bicycle with leather accents. The Hermès for Fancy selection is meant to relay Hermès’ “timeless, yet contemporary aesthetic and Fancy’s dedication to offering premium, unique products from around the world,” according to an Hermès-approved post on Fancy’s blog.
“Fancy is a great way for Hermès to test a presence on a social e-commerce platform,” said Caroline Watchorn, Hermès’ digital development director.
To tout the trio of products, Fancy developed a parallax animation video that allows shoppers to control the direction of the bicycle. “We set out to create a fun and engaging experience around these products,” said Joseph Einhorn, Fancy’s chief executive officer. “We are grateful to Hermès for their willingness to try something new with us.”
One of Fancy’s other potentially sizable initiatives will be the opening of a 20,000-square-foot

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,

MAN MADE: If the music at Jeremy Scott’s forthcoming runway show in New York comes blaring from the speakers singing, “Life in plastic, it’s fantastic” — the infamous lyrics from Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” — it wouldn’t be without good reason. That’s because at Scott’s Sept. 14 show, models’ feet will be bound in plastic shoes — designed in collaboration between Scott and Brazilian plastic footwear brand Melissa.
Scott — who will make his fashion week appearance straight off a noted involvement with MTV’s Video Music Awards — designed two Melissa-produced shoes for his spring show. Further information regarding their make, appearance and retail availability could not be learned.
In teaming with Melissa, Scott joins the Brazilian brand’s past collaborators including Vivienne Westwood and Karl Lagerfeld.

Baccarat Teams With Carolyne Roehm

CRYSTAL GALE: Carolyne Roehm is having a crystal moment. The multihyphenate decorator (and former fashion designer) styled some crystal creations in her Connecticut house to be photographed for Baccarat’s holiday catalog. And the French crystal-maker made its Paris flagship look like her home, including reproductions of watercolors she owns.
At a party in the Maison Baccarat on Thursday evening, Roehm reminisced about the first faceted Baccarat glasses that she ever purchased.
“Then they had the wonderful glasses called Provence that I still used,” she said, looking stunning in a Michael Kors dress, Verdura jewelry and high heels. “They are almost antiques now. I am sorry, but wine and Champagne just taste better in a pretty glass.”
Roehm’s house also is featured in her twelfth book, “At Home in the Garden,” which comes out on Oct. 27.
She entertains on a smaller scale these days than before.
“I have had 60 for dinner. Now, I find six to eight is my favorite way to entertain because then you get to talk to people,” she said.
Food-wise, she favors Italian.
“Give me a plate of pasta and I am a very happy lady,” said Roehm. “My entertaining is more casual — not in how I set the table but

Basta Surf Teams With Photographer Gray Malin on Resort Collection

SURF’S UP: Basta Surf will soon tout wearable art for an upcoming resort collection.
The swimwear company is set to deliver in November a collection in collaboration with photographer Gray Malin, known for his images of dreamy beach scenes. The collection fuses prints used from Malin’s photographs onto Basta Surf swimwear.
Malin and Basta Surf founders Emily Ford and Samantha August pored over Malin’s image collection and ultimately narrowed it down to prints that were blown up to create patterns for the collection. One was shot in Australia overlooking the beach on New Year’s Day and captured a giant wave rolling through. The other print was shot in Lisbon and captures beachgoers, picking up the bright colors from the clothing and umbrellas dotting the landscape.
“One really celebrates the water and one really celebrates the beach,” Malin said.
The collection, in which everything is reversible, consists of nine pieces. A one-piece swimsuit will retail for $ 218, two-pieces for $ 235 and a halter jumper with neon tassels is $ 398.
The line will be carried in Barney’s, Shopbop and Neiman Marcus, among other retailers.
“We both clearly have a love of travel and that’s executed so beautifully with this product and the quality is what we both do

Jeweler Lara Bohinc Teams With Lapicida on Furniture

CELESTIAL COLLECTION: London-based jewelry designer Lara Bohinc is working again with Lapicida, a British company that specializes in natural stone. She has designed a furniture collection that will launch in September at Decorex, the design fair held in Syon Park, near London. In 2014, she created the Solaris rotating table, which was influenced by celestial forms, and she’s looked once again to the stars — and to Venice — for her latest outing.
“I’ve visited Venice many times, but working with Lapicida has led me to see the city’s decorative stonework with a new and informed eye,” Bohinc told WWD. “There’s such an exciting visual mix going on there; you see classical stone marquetry techniques such as Pietra Dura alongside contemporary designs in marble. I love geometry and strong, graphic forms and I love rich, textural materials.”
Her three-piece Lunar collection includes the Half Moon dining table, the Sun and Moon coffee table and the Full Moon side table made from colored marble and brass or 18-karat gold-plated steel rims. Influenced by Venetian architecture, Bohinc has also used marble inlays, in colors such as Persian gold, verde Guatemala, red wine, black and gold.
The price range is from 5,995 pounds, or $ 9,364 for a

Gucci’s Chime For Change Teams up With Global Citizen

In an effort to raise awareness about girls’ and women’s issues around the globe, the Gucci-led Chime For Change has secured a long-term partnership with Global Citizen, a group striving to end extreme poverty by 2030.
To that end, Gucci and Chime For Change have signed on as the presenting partners for this year’s Global Citizen Festival that will be held on Sept. 26 in New York on Central Park’s Great Lawn. Thousands are expected to catch performances by Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran, Pearl Jam and Coldplay.
Beyoncé will be right at home, and not just because she and Jay Z live in TriBeCa. In 2013, she cofounded Chime for Change with Salma Hayek to help raise funds and awareness for girls’ and women’s empowerment with a focus on education, health and justice. Through crowdfunding, the group has raised more than $ 7.3 million to support 409 projects in 86 countries through 144 nonprofit partners.
Never one to shirk the spotlight, Beyoncé helped launch the partnership with Global Citizen with an announcement video. Her cohort Hayek noted that Chime for Change and Global Citizen were both started “with the idea that individuals have a significant role to play in creating global change.” She said, “This partnership will reach millions

Silver Jeans Teams With Jose Bautista

Silver Jeans is partnering with Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista on the Joey Series, a new limited-edition denim collection for fall.
Although the family-owned Canada-based brand has worked with celebrities on licensing deals in the past, this is its first time collaborating with an athlete on a men’s capsule collection. Owner Michael Silver said the relationship with Bautista started organically after a business friend who represents athletes suggested they work together.
“They invited me to a baseball game and he was absolutely not what I expected. He has a keen eye for fashion and wanted to get in on the fashion industry, but he didn’t want to put his name on just anything,” said Silver.
Named after Bautista’s moniker, Joey Bats, the Joey Series includes two styles: the Eddie, a relaxed-fit jean with a tapered leg, and the Gordie, a loose-fit, straight-leg jean. The Dominican player worked with the design team on subtle details that range from baseball-like stitching on back pockets and lead stitching on watch pockets to screen prints of old baseball cards on pocket linings and cross bat embroidery on waistbands. The jeans will be numbered and will retail for about $ 5 above Silver’s regular collection, which starts at

But this isn’t your average fashion/celebrity collaboration. The Grammy-nominated rapper is not only designing a collection of sneakers — like fellow musician Alicia Keys’ line for the company — he’s also helping the brand develop programs designed to keep kids off the streets.

“Reebok has a history of helping kids in the community realize their potential is limitless,” Lamar said in a press release. “I saw what the brand was doing, and I wanted to be a part of it and make it even stronger. It’s as simple as that. Kids that listen to my music are looking for inspiration. It’s important that I continue that message in anything I represent.”
