Former GQ Staffer, Tech Start-up Founder and Creative Director to Unveil Seam

Justin Hruska, a sneaker collector with a background in tech, wasn’t satisfied with his online shopping experience. Oftentimes he would visit larger e-commerce sites and feel shortchanged because he knew he wasn’t seeing everything a brand had to offer, which meant he had to visit other sites to find what he was looking for.
“A lot of brands use wholesale for awareness and put their best-selling products on their own site,” said Hruska. “So the consumer has to jump through all these hoops before they can purchase a $ 300 sweatshirt. With Seam, we want to reimagine what that looks like.”
Seam is a men’s and women’s shopping app set to launch this summer that was cofounded by Hruska, the chief executive officer, and Jake Woolf, the editorial director. Nate Brown, who cofounded Studio Institute, a creative firm that’s worked with artists including Beyoncé and Jay Z on tour visuals, is a partner and a strategic adviser who worked helped design the app.
Similar to Farfetch, Seam will serve as a marketplace, but instead of partnering with boutiques, Seam works directly with brands and designers and the app will mirror the product available on their e-commerce sites. Woolf said because Seam holds no inventory

New York Fashion Tech Lab Inks Accenture Deal for 2018 Partnership

New York Fashion Tech Lab has signed on Accenture as a partner for the 2018 program.
Springboard Enterprises founded NYFT Lab in 2013 with the support of retailers and fashion brands to help grow women-led emerging tech companies at the intersection of fashion, retail and technology. The company this year completed its fourth annual accelerator program. There’s some funding for the program from Springboard and the Partnership Fund for New York City, but most of the funding is from within the industry. That allows industry sponsors to learn about new tech ideas and work as mentors to further develop the ideas that they are most interested in.
Senior managing director at Accenture Jill Standish, who leads the company’s Retail Industry practice globally, said that with retailers and brands being disrupted by online “pure plays,” she sees Accenture’s role as partner with NYFT Lab to help the 2018 class participants more quickly accelerate their innovations to “better serve and connect consumers to the fashion industry.”
For the 2017 class, founding members J. Crew and Macy’s continued to participate in the program. Returning for the second year as tech partner was Microsoft. Also returning were second and third-year partners Bloomingdale’s and Kohl’s. New this year was

Major U.S. tech firms press Congress for internet surveillance reformsFacebook (FB.O), Amazon (AMZN.O) and more than two dozen other U.S. technology companies pressed Congress on Friday to make changes to a broad internet surveillance law, saying they were necessary to improve privacy protections and increase government transparency. The request marks the first significant public effort by Silicon Valley to wade into what is expected to be a contentious debate later the year over the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, parts of which will expire on Dec. 31 unless Congress reauthorizes them. Of particular concern to the technology industry and privacy advocates is Section 702, which allows U.S. intelligence agencies to vacuum up vast amounts of communications from foreigners but also incidentally collects some data belonging to Americans that can be searched by analysts without a warrant.

Called Zegna’s Toyz, the items, which range from a domino set to a backpack, are made in Pelle Tessuta, an innovative woven napa made from extremely thin strips of micro-leather in place of fabric yarns. “Leather is treated as fabric,” explained artistic director Alessandro Sartori.

How Tech Entrepreneur Tristan Walker Is Reshaping The Skincare Industry

Over three years since Bevel launched, its consumers are “as diverse as one can ask for,” according to founder and CEO, Tristan Walker.

Operated under Walker’s parent company of health-and-beauty brands, Walker & Company, last year Bevel debuted on the shelves of Target and added distribution via Amazon. Consisting of a range of shaving products and signature trimmer, the popular subscription shave system is marketed as a solution for men who suffer from skin-irritation problems.

While Walker started the company to provide shaving tools for the kind of bumps and irritation that are more prevalent among black men, Walker tells HuffPost that since expanding Bevel to retail customers he has noticed more diversity amongst its clientele, which now includes women.

“We’re noticing there are different people who purchase our products offline than online,” Walker said during an interview with The Huffington Post. “I’ve mentioned in the past, a lot of folks think Bevel is just shaving for black men, but we’ve never said that, and that’s never been our thinking. We’re trying to solve a very important issue that black men and women over-index on, but everyone has.”

Though a majority of Bevel’s online customers are black men, Walker went on to add that their offline demographic is slightly skewed from its target market.

“They’re white men,” he adds. “So it’s a really interesting kind of mix of folks who buy our product, and it hasn’t affected the way that we operate either our online or offline business as a result.” 

Walker’s sharp attention to diversity and America’s census data has also resulted as a competitive advantage for the shaving startup. The Stanford University Graduate School of Business alum notes that a majority of the company’s employees includes people of color and women to mirror Bevel’s consumer base.

To that notion, Walker believes more health and beauty companies should make a concerted effort to tailor their personnel to reflect undeserved markets in America.

“You look at the larger companies elsewhere, they don’t look like or reflect the diversity of America. And they sure as hell don’t reflect the diversity of what America’s going to be like in 20 years,” he said. “This is incredibly important. So that’s how we approach it, and that’s how I hope and think everyone else should.”

As part of Bevel’s ambitions to become the industry’s leading brand for all things grooming, Walker said the company plans to release an additional line of skincare products for men and women with a range of skincare concerns, including hyper pigmentation.

Last year, Bevel received a major marketing push for its Bevel Trimmer thanks to brand ambassador-investor Nas’ lyrics on the chorus of DJ Khaled’s single “Nas Album Done.” For Walker, the hip-hop veteran underscored the company’s instinct to uplift and enrich black businesses.

“By [Nas] saying ‘My signature fade with the Bevel blade,’ everybody knows about Nas’ haircuts. So for him giving us the cosign and taking responsibility for his lineup, that’s significant,” he said. “It’s not only significant, it’s authentic. It makes sense. And also, his message is celebrating black business and empowerment and that’s something that we talk a lot about.”

Following the song’s release, the trimmer was named among GQ’s best grooming products of 2016.

“We’re thankful for that and we’re thankful that we have the partners and investors to do stuff like that on our behalf without our knowing,” he continued. “And we’re only gonna see more of that.”

Gant Launches Tech Prep Shirt Range

LONDON — Gant is tapping into technical fibers with the launch of its men’s tech prep range, WWD has learned.
“We thought we had an opportunity here of bringing innovation into products that still look very preppy,” said Gant president and chief executive officer Patrik Nilsson.
Specially woven fibers offer quick-dry, breathable and cooling effects. Garments are made from fabrics that are treated with a fast-drying and anti-absorbant finish to regulate body temperature.
The 23-piece collection includes shirting and knitwear. Key pieces include a chambray shirt in a classic button-down collar style, a fitted check shirt, a blue stripe shirt, as well as a pique jersey style. The range is priced from 85 pounds, or $ 106, for a shirt to 150 pounds, or $ 188, for a sweater. It will be available for purchase this month in stores and the brand’s web site.
Nilsson noted that 20 percent of the brand’s total business is from shirting and believes that it will grow to 30 percent by 2020. He said that the company tested the shirts while running a company relay race and marathon at Bellmanstafetten in Stockholm. “We had over 200 people from the company run,” noted Nilsson. “And all of us ran in those shirts so
