Hugo Boss Teams With Jeremyville on Holiday Capsule

Every year, Hugo Boss commissions an artist to create a special collection to commemorate the Chinese New Year and the holiday season. Some years it’s easier, like 2018, the Year of the Dog, when the German brand worked with artist Julian Meagher to create Playforever, a collection centered around race cars where a dog is featured in the driver’s seat.
But 2019 will be the Year of the Pig, which creative director Ingo Wilts admitted “was a little bit challenging. How can we do Hugo Boss and a pig in a fun way?”

The sneakers are printed with pigs and other characters. 

But when the brand found New York City-based artist Jeremyville, he soon put its fears to rest. The artist offered up a colorful cityscape featuring an array of characters, including pigs, that the brand put on accessories such as bags and shoes as well as apparel. The characters were printed onto leather accessories in a relief design, a leather backpack features a Jeremyville rabbit, and a sneaker has a raised pig motif. There are also dress shirts, sweatshirts, tees and bombers as well as figurines, charms and iPhone cases.

The Jeremyville backpack for Hugo Boss.

Danielle Guizio Teams With FDNY to Create Limited-Edition Capsule Collection

FOUR-ALARM FASHION: With a few relatives who are firefighters, Danielle Giuzio understands the round-the-clock dedication that goes with the job. Now the New York-based contemporary designer has created a capsule collection with the New York City Fire Department. Developed to honor the work of New York’s bravest, the nine-piece collection of genderless streetwear features FDNY logos and incorporates uniform accents and fire truck insignia.
Four years into her own company, Giuzio started her career as a stylist, working with Lady Gaga’s stylist. More recently, she started doing a little personal shopping on the side at the request of her friends including Halsey, whom she first met six years ago. One of Giuzio’s childhood friends is now the musician’s manager. The designer said she first got to know of Halsey via the Internet. “It might have even been before Instagram,” she said.
The pair became friends during their leaner days, when each was trying to make their way. At that time, Halsey was sleeping on the floor with two of Giuzio’s other friends in a New York apartment. As for lending a hand to Gaga’s wardrobe, Giuzio said she grew up singing and dancing to the six-time Grammy winner’s music in her friends’

LONDON — 24 Sèvres is continuing its commitment to offer exclusive product from LVMH-owned labels that don’t have wide e-commerce presence.
After teaming with Céline on an exclusive range, the retailer’s next project includes the release of an exclusive capsule with Louis Vuitton.
Five of the most buzzy products from the label’s fall 2018 collection have been reissued for the capsule, including a black logo dress, the popular “Vanity” structured tote bag in taupe, the “Party” aviator sunglasses in blue-tinged frames and the famous Archlight sneakers recreated in a blue, yellow and white color palette.
“As the exclusive retailer for Louis Vuitton, 24 Sèvres has been a partner of the Maison since day one. This collaboration was a natural next step,” said a company representative, pointing to the retailer’s commitment to offering unique pieces that can’t be found anywhere else.
“This has informed the regular capsules and collaborations released since the launch in June 2017. Exclusive product is at the center of our product strategy.”
The retailer added that more capsules are in the works and it’s looking to engage a mix of luxury and contemporary labels that reflect the “mix and match Parisian lifestyle” and the way its brick-and-mortar counterpart, Le Bon Marché is

Manny Machado trade market: Eight teams talking to Orioles, but these two are the front-runners

Given that the Orioles are terrible and that pending free agent Manny Machado is the opposite of terrible, it seems highly likely that the star infielder will be moved in advance of the non-waiver trade deadline.  Machado in his age-25 season is batting .311/.378/.565 (160 OPS+) with 21 home runs in 83 games. That's on pace to be easily a career year for Machado, and he's also proved himself capable of returning to the shortstop position in 2018. He's going to get paid this coming offseason, and he may wind up fetching a bigger contract than Bryce Harper does.  In the here and now, though, Machado is very likely on his way to a contender.

Palace Skateboards Teams With Adidas for Court-Driven Apparel and Accessories Collaboration

For an elevated echelon of athletes, Wimbledon — with its grass courts, all-white dress code and strawberries and cream tradition — could be considered palatial in terms of sporting events. With 11 tournament wins, Roger Federer might be considered king.
In time for the crown jewel in London’s tennis circuit, the British skate label Palace has linked with Adidas to create a court-ready collection. The Adidas tennis by Palace collection debuts globally on July 3. To help get the message out, photographer Alasdair McLellan shot Palace-sponsored skateboarders Blondey McCoy, Lucien Clarke and Rory Milanes, along with Adidas-supported tennis players Sascha Zverev and 2017 Wimbledon women’s singles winner Garbiñe Muguruza.
The two brands have whipped up an assortment of items including a white terry tracksuit with removable sleeves, an engineered polo shirt, a graphic T-shirt and two styles of short. For the women’s range — a new frontier for Palace — there is a dress, a tank top with shorts, T-shirt and skirt. Each garment has a short legging in line with those worn by leading tennis stars.
Rounding out the assortment are accessories such as crew socks, and “no-show’ ones, a tie band, caps, wristbands, a white terry bucket hat, tennis balls and

Paco Rabanne Teams With Apartamento Magazine

RUBBER SOUL: Paco Rabanne has handed over the window of its Rue Cambon boutique to hip interiors magazine Apartamento, which has put its take on one of the label’s signature raw materials: rubber.
The collaboration, celebrated with a cocktail at the boutique Friday evening, coincides with the magazine’s 10th anniversary, while its spring 2018 edition also features a still-life photo shoot with the substance.
“I’ve always adored Apartamento,” said Julien Dossena, Paco Rabanne’s creative director for women’s wear. “It’s a magazine that combines all disciplines with a lot of modernity and refinement, and I was thrilled to collaborate with them on this window.”
The display, which will remain in place until early July, combines recycled rubber elements with designs from the label’s current collection made with the substance.
Apartamento art director Omar Sosa explained that since the magazine’s beginnings 10 years ago, each issue has featured a still-life series built around a specific material. “For this issue, we chose rubber, and we replicated this in the window,” he said. “These still lives are about improvisation, it’s part of the game for us. It was easy, in the best way possible, because our esthetics are very aligned [with those of Paco Rabanne].”

First up is New York-based men’s wear label Abasi Rosborough, which will feature its spring 2019 collection at White Man this month.

Trina Turk has partnered with Disney Pixar to create a capsule collection of active swimwear inspired by “Incredibles 2,” which opens June 15.

“It’s very clean and simple. It’s kind of swimwear and it’s kind of activewear.

Thorsun Teams With Surf Lodge

George Sotelo has snagged a great summer job.
The founder and designer of Thorsun, a luxury men’s and women’s swimwear brand, has been named the Designer in Residence for the trendy Surf Lodge in Montauk, N.Y.
No, the gig doesn’t mean he’s spending the summer there hanging by the pool, but it does mean he’s designed the uniforms for the staff as well as the upholstery for the outdoor furniture.
Sotelo said he got to know the Surf Lodge team last summer when he did a charity pop-up there for Project Paz, which allowed him to actually sell to customers in person for the first time. “It was successful and super fun,” he said, “and I met a whole new demographic who had never heard of the brand.”
So when Surf Lodge founder Jayma Cardoso reached out to see if he’d follow Rachel Comey and Zimmerman as this year’s designer, he immediately agreed. The gig also allowed him to do women’s ready-to-wear for the first time — he designed three different patterned dresses for the staff. The men are being outfitted in surf shorts and sport shirts in one of his custom prints that he based on the color palette of the resort.

The duo, whose fashion has been inspired by painters such as Carmen Herrera and Ellsworth Kelly, with distinctive approaches to color, was given carte blanche for their makeup creations.
“Lancôme has always represented the epitome of luxury beauty products, so it is like a dream come true to be able to collaborate with such an iconic and historic brand,” the duo said jointly in a statement.
Françoise Lehmann, general manager of Lancôme international, called Proenza Schouler fashion “the manifesto of a strong, free femininity. The idea of ‘empowerment’ is at the heart of their values, just as it has always been at the heart of the Lancôme philosophy.”
Proenza Schouler is the latest in a number of designer collaborations for Lancôme, which has worked on capsule color cosmetics lines with Olympia Le-Tan, Sonia Rykiel, Anthony Vaccarello, Jacquemus and Alber Elbaz — among others — in the past.

LONDON — Vionnet is veering in a more environmentally sound direction with a sustainable collaboration with the artist Marc Quinn that launches May 7 at Selfridges, WWD has learned.
“The fashion industry is the second biggest pollutant in the world,” said Goga Ashkenazi, Vionnet’s creative director, in an interview. She described the project as “a true coming together of minds” to raise awareness, and also to take steps toward sustainability.

Tracy Reese Teams With Artist Mel Chin for Art Project Designed to Raise Awareness of Flint’s Water Crisis

EVERY LAST DROP: Conceptual artist Mel Chin recruited Tracy Reese to create a fashion element for his retrospective “All Over the Place” at the Queens Museum in New York.
Coproduced by the public art-focused nonprofit No Longer Empty, the exhibition will feature 70-plus examples of his work — drawings, paintings, sculpture, installations and videos. Running through Aug. 7, the multilocation show will include sites in Times Square and the Broadway-Lafayette subway station. Adept at revealing environmental and socioeconomic systems and injustices, Chin recruited the Detroit-born Reese for “Flint Fit,” a fashion project designed to magnify the water crisis in Flint, Mich.
At Chin’s suggestion, 90,000 used water bottles were collected by Flint residents, who continue to use bottled water for everyday purposes more than three years after lead-contaminated water became a citywide problem. Once shipped to Unifi in Greensboro, N.C., the bottles were shredded and converted into fabric. Reese then designed a water-inspired collection that included rainwear and swimwear. About 14 women at the St. Luke N.E.W. Center produced the nine looks, which will be unveiled in a fashion event Sunday in the museum’s Watershed Gallery.

‘Wonder Woman’ Actress Gal Gadot Teams Up with Reebok to Encourage Physical Fitness

BUSY GAL: Reebok has recruited “Wonder Woman” actress Gal Gadot for a new partnership.
In an assortment of images, the “Wonder Woman” actress shows off her strength wearing items from the brand’s training collection. Working out is fundamental for her. Aside from having a mother who worked as a physical education teacher, the Israeli-born, 32-year-old served for two years as a combat instructor in the Israel Defense Forces. The mother of two has opted for some physically demanding roles too such as “Fast & Furious” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Gadot’s strength training will presumably be ramping up in the months ahead, since “Wonder Woman 2” is slated to hit theaters in November 2019.
As for her own workout regime, “my trainer and I make sure to keep our training regime as diverse as possible so it keeps it different and fun. I lift weights, cardio and boxing. We also focus on flexibility,” she said via e-mail.
With 17.6 million Instagram followers, Gadot joins the ranks of Gigi Hadid, Victoria Beckham, Ariana Grande and other widely followed women who work with Reebok. For its newest celebrity-supported campaign, Reebok tapped photographer Collier Schorr.
Hired to reinforce Reebok’s “Be More Human” mantra, Gadot said via

Celebrity Stylist Ilaria Urbinati Teams With Strong Suit

NEW YORK — Expect to see Armie Hammer sporting a black-and-white hopsack sport coat on a red carpet sometime soon.
The jacket is part of a collaboration between celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinati and the Little Rock, Ark.-based Strong Suit that will be launching for spring.
The pair was introduced around two years ago by actress Cameron Richardson, and the result of that meeting will be a collection of men’s suits, sport coats and dress shirts under the Strong Suit by Ilaria Urbinati label that will launch at Nordstrom’s new men’s store slated to open in New York in April. The collection will also be carried at the retailer’s Melrose Place store in Los Angeles.
“Ilaria is genuinely looking for the best style for her clients,” said Jamie Davidson, founder and creative director of Strong Suit, which was purchased one year ago by Oxford Industries. “She cares about the substance of the clothes, not the branding. So I’m incredibly grateful that she decided to work with a little start-up from Little Rock.”
The negotiations with Nordstrom, which carries Strong Suit’s regular men’s collection at several stores, started over a year ago. But once they saw the collection, “they were totally on board with it,” he said.

The Kooples Teams With PETA

French brand The Kooples, which pledged to transition to a fur-free brand in 2016, has teamed with PETA on a collaborative clutch bag.
The vegan leather style retails for $ 65, with all proceeds benefiting PETA.
Kooples global chief executive officer Nicolas Dreyfus said: “One day I received a call from PETA asking to sit down. They came to my office and showed me a video and said, ‘You have to stop using fur. You have a powerful name and a huge network, I’m sure you can help make it stop.’ I didn’t see that there was another option.”
In September 2016, the brand vowed to go fur-free and marked its first fur-free fall collection in 2017. “Our bestseller this season is a faux fur coat for women. It shows that people are ready to buy faux fur if the product is good and is of good quality,” he said.
“I don’t want to be proud of stopping to use fur, we are not the first one to do this and I hope we are not the last. I want the whole industry to follow the decision,” Dreyfus said. The trend toward going fur-free has been strengthening. In October 2018, Gucci pledged to go fur-free,

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.”

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.

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.”

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

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.
