Agnona Marks Eternals Collection With New York Dinner

On Wednesday evening, Italian sportswear label Agnona held a private dinner with Bergdorf Goodman to mark the release of its essentials collection — a new range of four-figure wardrobe basics devised by creative director Simon Holloway.
The Waverly Inn’s garden room, with its translucent ceiling, provided dinner guests with a private, cozy viewing of the lightning storm that was covering New York. Poppy Delevingne, the collection’s spokesmodel, turned up in a camel cashmere suit just after the rain began. “It’s warm,” she said of the finely spun goat hair fibers cocooning her in heat-wave temperatures. In the more moderate climate of her native London, however, the model uses Agnona to “wrap myself up and be like a glowworm, which I love.”
Holloway said Eternals was devised as “a very elevated line of tailored clothing, pillars for every wardrobe in navy, black, camel, flannel gray and rosewood — essential pieces that are easy for women to wrap into their lives.” The collection’s suiting, loungewear and knits are meant to appeal to a lifestyle-in-motion — a woman who floats between travel, career and family life.
Holloway, who joined Agnona in 2015, was excited to report that “since joining the company, I’ve seen the [client] age

Hilfiger’s TommyNow Show at the Apollo Theater Marks Return to New York

After traveling the world, Tommy Hilfiger is bringing its TommyNow fashion show back to New York.
On Sept. 8, the company will showcase the fall 2019 Tommy x Zendaya collaborative collection, codesigned by Tommy Hilfiger and global brand ambassador Zendaya, at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. The choice of the Apollo Theater confirms a WWD report on Jan. 8.
The show is expected to continue the themes of inclusion, diversity and empowerment that Hilfiger and Zendaya brought to the TommyNow runway show in Paris for spring 2019. That runway show, which paid homage to the 1973 French-U.S. “Battle of Versailles,” featured an all-black cross-generational cast including Grace Jones, Beverly Johnson, Pat Cleveland, Grace Jones, Veronica Webb, Halima Aden, Jourdan Dunn and Winnie Harlow. Roller disco dancers on an illuminated runway warmed up the crowd of more than 1,000 guests.
The Apollo show marks Hilfiger’s return to New York, having shown in the city for fall 2016. Since that initial presentation, the worldwide tour touched down in Los Angeles for spring 2017, London for fall 2017, Milan for spring 2018, Shanghai for fall 2018, and then Paris.

New York Men’s Day Offers Peek at All-Stars, Emerging Labels

New York Men’s Day’s afternoon session on Monday showcased both emerging designers and those who have created more-established businesses, ones touted as All-Stars. Those included Krammer & Stoudt, Descendant of Thieves and Wood House Army. Private Policy, which will hold a runway show on Wednesday, was also part of the mix.
Three  pieces from Krammer & Stoudt were psychedelic-colored updates of the brand’s Americana-skewed workwear, with jackets and pants created from 12-oz. denim and decorated with Day-Glo colors in designs including hot rod flames.
Julian Woodhouse of Wood House Army offered up WHA, three graphic black-and-white vertically striped looks from his diffusion line that included an anorak, shorts and a one-piece with military details.
For Descendant of Thieves, the brand offered up an assortment of multipurpose pieces for the travel guy, including reversible shorts, lightweight jackets and swimwear that could double as regular shorts.
Private Policy used the All-Star showcase to launch Pxl, a see-now-buy-now capsule collection of black, blue and green prints on shirts, trousers, caps, a bikini top and racing shorts.
Among the other brands showing at New York Men’s Day were International Woolmark Prize 2018/19 nominees Ka Wa Key, who presented a romantic collection of hand-done tie-dye patterns and distressing on airy knits and

Loro Piana Steps Out With Shoe Pop-up in New York

Loro Piana is stepping out. The Italian brand, known for its buttery soft textiles, has unveiled a pop-up shop in New York’s Meatpacking District exalting its key footwear styles. Called “The Rare Walk, Meatpacking,” the  residency which runs till July 8, takes a fun, spirited approach to its white-soled shoes.
As customers walk into the 16,000-square-foot space at 3 Ninth Avenue, they encounter oversize fabric fixtures mimicking dunes that nod to the Mongolian territory where the brand’s well-known cashmere is sourced. The fixtures prop up the shoes, including variations of the “walk” style and a limited-edition unisex merino wool sneaker exclusive to the Meatpacking store. The store also carries exclusive bags, scarves and a selection of small leather goods.
According to chief executive officer Fabio d’Angelantonio, the summer walk shoes have been popular with a new, younger customer, adding, “It’s been a way for them to discover the brand.”
The pop-up marks the U.S. debut of Loro Piana’s made-to-measure footwear program, which offers a choice of colors, linings and material combinations. A wall of 30 shoes in grid formation broadcasts the color options. The brand has a similar program in its European stores, but the downtown New York store also offers an option

New York Fashion Week: Men’s Hanging on by a Thread

New York Fashion Week: Men’s is on life support.
Less than three weeks until the start of the men’s spring runway season, the Council of Fashion Designers of America has finally released its calendar — and it’s not pretty.
There are fewer than 20 men’s designers showing and half are with Agentry PR’s New York Men’s Day. Absent from the calendar are some designers who have been active supporters of the men’s shows since they were launched four years ago, including Todd Snyder, Robert Geller, Ovadia New York, Carlos Campos and Bode.
Instead, the calendar kicks off on June 3 with Agentry’s presentations of small and emerging designers only. The following day, N.Hoolywood will show at 6 p.m., followed by Frere at 7 p.m. The final day on June 5 will see presentations from Hecho, Freemans Sporting Club, Untitled Collective, Dyne and Linder, as well as shows from Private Policy, NIHL and Grungy Gentleman.
The reasons for the lack of participation are several. First, this marks the first time the men’s shows have moved from July to June to coincide with women’s resort. That timing is early for a lot of brands since the men’s market in New York is generally in mid- to

Bode Choosing Paris Over New York

Emily Bode is jumping across the pond to show her spring collection and will make her runway debut in Paris next month, WWD has learned.
The New York-based designer’s presentation of her heritage-inspired men’s wear has been a staple of New York Fashion Week: Men’s since its launch in 2016. But the declining significance of the shows and the character of the company’s business led to the decision.
Additionally, the brand is a finalist for the LVMH Prize, which will be awarded in Paris in June.
Paris Fashion Week’s organizers are expected to make the announcement of Bode’s participation today.
“The majority of our distribution is in Europe,” Bode said. “And we wanted the buyers and press to see the collection. We’ve been selling via line sheets and post-show, so we thought it was important to embrace the opportunity and make the jump to Paris.”
Bode is the latest designer brand to abandon the struggling New York spring calendar. The official schedule released Wednesday by the Council of Fashion Designers of America is anemic, with only around 20 men’s presentations and shows, nearly all of them emerging or little-known designers.
“I’m super-grateful to New York Fashion Week: Men’s,” Bode said, “and I’m excited to see what

Agentry to Open New York Fashion Week: Men’s Again

Agentry PR is pivoting.
The organizer of New York Men’s Day, a showcase for emerging designers, will once again open the men’s spring calendar, working in tandem with the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
The CFDA shifted the men’s dates to June 3 to 5 this season to coincide with the women’s resort calendar. This means the New York-based men’s shows will take place ahead of the men’s shows in London, Florence, Milan and Paris.
Agentry had considered sticking with the former July dates to give the designers more time to prepare their collections and align with the New York men’s trade shows, but opted to stick with CFDA instead.
But there are other changes: New York Men’s Day will now be held at Daylight Studios & Location 05, next to the newly opened Hudson Yards complex on the West Side of Manhattan. For the past few seasons, the shows had been held at Dune Studios in the financial district.
New York Men’s Day will feature presentations from nine designers, down from 12 in prior iterations. Five will be held over a two-hour period in the morning and four in the afternoon.
But the event will also feature an All Stars Showcase where previous Men’s

In the Spotlight: Willem New York Twists the Classics

Brand: Willem New York
Backstory: After graduating with a history degree from Harvard, Sean McDonagh indulged his love of kicks by working on branding for the Greats, the buzzy sneaker brand. But he soon got restless and sought to tell a fuller men’s wear story. “I’m someone who jumps into the fire,” he said. So he created Willem New York, a casual men’s wear collection rooted in American staples such as jeans, hoodies and T-shirts but with subtle design twists. In addition to updating classics, McDonagh also strives to tell a story with Willem. For spring, a collection he titled Paradise Lost, he was inspired by Seventies Montauk, N.Y., where he’s spent his summers since childhood, and photographer Peter Beard. The influence of the lensman, who is renowned for his images of Africa and its wildlife, is found in several pieces of Willem’s spring offering such as safari jackets as well as the earthy color palette.
Key pieces: Although Kenya and Montauk might not on the surface seem to have much in common, McDonagh has managed to seamlessly blend the aesthetic of both in his spring offering. The design is intended to represent “a beach town with safari details,” he said. That

Fur Supporters Plan to Keep Fighting New York City’s Proposed Ban on Fur Sales

Fur industry advocates plan to continue to turn up the heat on the New York City Council, in response to its proposal for a bill that would ban the sale of fur apparel.
Initially put forward by Council Speaker Corey Johnson and City Council members Mark Levine, Fernando Cabrera, Justin Brannan, Helen Rosenthal and Robert Holden, the proposal has since been moved to the Committee on Consumer Affairs and Business Licensing for further discussion.
If approved, violations would be punished by a civil penalty of no more than $ 500 for the first violation, and no less than $ 500, but no more than $ 1,500 for subsequent violations. Fur apparel sold or offered for sale would be subject to seizure and forfeiture.
Nancy Daigneault, vice president of the Americas for the International Fur Federation, said Friday that a number of furriers and other fur advocates have met with their respective council members and have contacted their offices. “In the last week, furriers have been picking up the phone and calling themselves and meeting with City Council members in their district, or sometimes staff if the members aren’t available,” she said. “We’re hopeful that the city will listen that it’s an ill-conceived ban.

Jos. A. Bank Reopens New York Flagship With Updated Design

NEW YORK — Jos. A. Bank has taken the wraps off a store design that is intended to be a more visible statement of its brand positioning.
The 13,800-square-foot flagship on Madison Avenue and 46th Street had been closed since June for the revamp and had a soft reopening on Tuesday. The official opening event is on March 19.
“We wanted our flagship in New York to represent a unique space as iconic as Madison Avenue,” said Mary Beth Blake, brand president for the Jos. A. Bank division of Tailored Brands Inc. The retailer was founded in 1905 in Baltimore and purchased by Tailored Brands, the former Men’s Wearhouse, in 2014.
The Madison Avenue store opened in 1994 and had not undergone a revamp for 25 years, Blake said.
The first hint that something has changed is seen on the awnings, which tout “the new tradition” that will be found inside. Upon entering, the customer finds 17-foot-high ceilings, custom furniture and fixtures in rich brown woods, Corian stone tops, brushed copper hardware and antique mirrors. Features intended to speak to the brand’s heritage include metallic wall coverings and architectural ornaments as well as a map of Baltimore on the walls of the staircase.

New York Trade Shows Set Uncertain Tone for Season

The rollicking situation with the U.S. government and the subsequent economic uncertainties are giving specialty stores some angst about their prospects in 2019.
With that as the backdrop, retailers were cautious as they shopped the trade shows in New York City last month. They scoured the aisles of Project, Liberty Fairs and Man searching for those special items that would draw customers into their stores. And luckily, they were able to find some things that fit the bill — updated knitwear, outerwear and accessories in particular — from some off-the-radar vendors with a creative bent.
“The fourth quarter overall was good, but the last two weeks of the year with the government shutdown and the market tanking took some steam out of our results,” said Ken Giddon, president of Rothmans.
Although he remains positive, Giddon said he’s expecting a “fight” to hit last year’s numbers, especially as traditional tailored clothing sales continue to drop. “There are a lot fewer suits being bought so we have to find dollars to make up for that,” he said.
And so Giddon, who admits that he loves “the hunt” at trade shows, pored through the hundreds of brands on display to find those replacement dollars. The good news,

Ermenegildo Zegna Flagship Opens in New York

Ermenegildo Zegna opens today a flagship in a New York landmark — the storied Crown Building.
Located at 4 West 57th Street and covering 7,128 square feet, the store was designed by longtime Zegna go-to architect, Peter Marino, who conceived a concept for the unit.
Zegna’s arrival is another indication that 57th Street is increasingly turning into a luxury hub of retail transformation and retail towers. As reported, Nordstrom and David Yurman are moving in, Chanel almost doubled its presence and Swiss watchmaker Richard Mille last October opened its largest store, to name a few.
Zegna’s existing Fifth Avenue store is expected to close by the end of the month. The banner in Brookfield Place overlooking Wall Street will continue to stand. In the U.S., the Italian men’s wear company counts 19 stores and seven outlets.
The striking facade of the flagship is composed of metallic strings, a reference to yarns and the company’s textile expertise, which overlay two glass floors. LED lights illuminate the abstract fabric threads at night.
To convey the Ermenegildo Zegna sensibility, there is vintage furniture, artworks and an innovative installation to present the products, which will change throughout the year and be linked with the displays in the windows.

Will New York Fashion Shows Ultimately Land at The Shed?

So when will New York Fashion Week set up its fashion shows at the Shed, which opens April 5?
For years, reports have been circulating that the fashion shows would take place at The Shed once it was completed. The Shed revealed Wednesday that the new nonprofit cultural organization dedicated to commissioning, developing and presenting original works of art, across all disciplines for all audiences, will have its opening season starting April 5. The Shed looks to present world premiere works in the performing arts, visual arts and popular culture.
“We have built a home where established and emerging artists working in all disciplines can create new work in ways that we cannot even imagine,” said Alex Poots, artistic director and chief executive officer of The Shed.
And, where does fashion fit in?
Ivan Bart, president of IMG Models and IMG Fashion Properties, said, “We are hosting NYFW: The Shows at Spring Studios this February, and our focus is on the upcoming season. The Shed is an exciting new development with incredible potential to enhance New York’s culture, and we’re confident many of our talent at Endeavor, whether with IMG or WME, will perform or engage with the space.” He declined to discuss whether

What to Watch: New York Fashion Week: Men’s Latest Challenges

New York Fashion Week: Men’s has had trouble gaining a foothold since it was launched by the Council of Fashion Designers of America four years ago. The upcoming fall shows — slated for Feb. 4 to 6 — are facing even bigger challenges. First, an unexpected one-time shift in dates by the trade shows in Las Vegas means that retailers and editors who usually attend both will have to make a choice or abbreviate one or both of the events. Project, Liberty Fairs and Agenda will be held Feb. 5 to 7.
On top of that, many of fashion’s biggest and buzziest names have opted to either hold dual-gender shows or have decamped to other cities. Tom Ford will again hold a men’s and women’s show, as he has in past seasons, at 8 p.m. on Feb. 6, officially ending the men’s shows. The women’s shows kick off with Ralph Lauren on Feb. 7 at 10 a.m.
Also opting for dual-gender shows later in the week are Palm Angels — which is making its New York debut — on Feb. 8; John Elliott on Feb. 9; Opening Ceremony on Feb. 10, and Michael Kors on the final day, Feb. 13.
Calvin Klein, which

CFDA Releases New York Fashion Week Schedule

The next New York Fashion Week will see a dual-gender Tom Ford show bridge the official men’s and women’s calendars.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America released a preliminary schedule Tuesday night that includes Ford at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6, the last of the three-day men’s-specific schedule. His show will be co-ed, however.
In addition, Joseph Abboud will be showing at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 4, followed by Todd Snyder at 8:00 that night. Other known names on the men’s roster are Robert Geller who will show on Tuesday, Feb. 5, at 7:00 p.m., and Ovadia & Sons who will show an hour later that night. Tuesday will also see shows from Dyne, N. Hoolywood, Landlord and Linder.
As reported, a shift in dates by Project in Las Vegas means that the runway shows will overlap with the men’s trade shows this time. Project, Liberty and Agenda will hold their shows Feb. 5–7.
As far as the women’s shows are concerned, Ralph Lauren will kick off the week at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 7, and Marc Jacobs will end the week on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 6:00 p.m.

ExKite Limited-Edition Capsule Lands at Barneys New York

Renzo Mancini is proving that you don’t have to be based in a fashion capital to have your products sold by a luxury retailer. Of course, Mancini is a little more remote than most — some would even say, off the grid. Still, he managed to get the attention of Barneys New York buyers from Sardinia, where he lives and operates ExKite with his wife, stylist Eirinn Skrede.
The eco-friendly ExKite creates jackets from kite-surfing kites that are decommissioned and upcycled.
Mancini, a former professional kite surfer, found his calling when he was test-piloting a kite surfing brand. Testing the kites in the water, Mancini realized they could no longer be used for kite surfing, but he didn’t want to throw them away. Each kite was associated with a memory — of a beautiful day or a nice moment on the beach. With Skrede, he designed jackets, each a one-of-a-kind article.
Mancini said he didn’t “want to take a corner at Barneys because we are not yet known.” He had an idea, which sounds quite ambitious, but was second nature for the kite-surfing pro. “‘Why don’t we take two kites and put the logo of Barneys on one and the ExKite logo on

Woman Paralyzed After Falling Off Cliff While Running from Attacker Will Crutch New York Marathon

Just two years ago, Hannah Gavios lay injured after falling 150 feet from a cliff in Thailand — she didn’t think she’d live, let alone walk again. Now, she’s gearing up to complete the 2018 New York City Marathon.

On Sept. 1, 2016, Gavios fell from the cliff while trying to escape a man attempting to assault her in the southeast Asian country. As she fled the attacker, she fell and lay paralyzed. There, she was held hostage and assaulted for hours, she says.

She was later rescued but suffered a spinal cord injury from the fall. Gavios is now unable use her feet and toes, and her shins have nerve damage.

Her attacker was prosecuted and imprisoned.

“After the news of my injury, one of the most devastating things to hear was I’m unable to run, let alone walk,” Gavios, 25, tells PEOPLE. “But I needed to run again, so I thought the closest thing to that is crutching. I could participate in the race and use what I have to the fullest.”

Earlier this year, while still undergoing intense physical therapy, Gavios decided to participate in the annual marathon. She learned about Amanda Sullivan, who completed the race on crutches in the past, and was inspired to take on the feat herself.

RELATED VIDEO: Desiree Linden, Sarah Sellers steal show at Boston Marathon

“I began training at the end of March. I’d just go out for an hour, the longest I’ve ever is seven hours,” Gavios, a graphic designer in New York City, says.

“The best part of my training is getting into it and having fun with it. The hardest part is stamina, being able to keep it up for as long as possible. There are times I start to ache and my whole body hurts. But I proved to myself that I’m stronger than I think.”

Gavios has joined Team Reeve (of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation) and has raised more than $ 16,000 for the foundation, which supports people living with paralysis and funds research to find a cure. With the race just days away, Gavios says she’s “excited” to participate and start on her next challenge.

“I feel very prepared. I feel like finally the day is coming after all of this effort and energy,” she tells PEOPLE. “My long term goals are to run again. It’s not really over, I have more work to do and more mysteries to solve about spinal cord energy. I want to participate in the cause.”

Joe Bananas Makes Leap From Sydney to New York

Kim Bourke and Evan Sturrock are all in.
The co-owners of Joe Bananas, a 40-year-old Australian luxury men’s brand, have picked up stakes, moved halfway around the world to New York and opened their first store on Madison Avenue.
“When Americans dream big, they dream of making it in New York City,” Bourke said. “And when Australians dream big, they dream of making it in New York City.”
And so he and his business partner — and brother-in-law — took the leap of faith, leaving their home, and their two stores in Sydney, to open a 1,600-square-foot space at 943 Madison Avenue, between 74th and 75th streets, next door to The Met Breuer. The store had a soft opening last week and the grand opening is scheduled for Oct. 18.
A peek inside gives the first hint at what makes Joe Bananas different. Although the brand offers a wide range of products, it is best known for its colorful sport coats that are created from limited-edition, handcrafted silk textiles in patterns that are inspired by nature in Australia. It takes 250-300 days on average to weave one bolt of fabric that will in turn produce only six jackets that retail starting at $ 2,800 and go up

New York Fashion Week: Men’s, Vegas Date Overlap Causing Angst

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe — make your choice — New York Fashion Week: Men’s or MAGIC.
A shift in dates by Project, the flagship men’s wear trade show of the MAGIC Marketplace in Las Vegas, to a week earlier in February is forcing many brands and retailers to choose between the two events or, in the case of smaller designers, create extra samples in order to have a presence at both.
NYFW: Men’s will run Feb. 4 to 6 in New York City while Project will run Feb. 5 to 7 in Las Vegas.
Already Liberty Fairs and Agenda have had to leave their longtime home at the Sands Convention Center in order to align with Project’s dates and have secured a spot in downtown Las Vegas for their shows.
Sharifa Murdock, co-owner of Liberty, said she’s aiming to deliver a different experience this time. Liberty will be held at the World Market Center, which she described as an “open space with four big tents” that will allow Liberty a clean slate to “create what we want. We’re going to do something brand new,” she said.
That will include “a lot of activations” that will offer a “fresh” take on the trade show scene. “We

The San Francisco-based online men’s retailer will open its first retail location at 383 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village in November. The shop will feature “seven actionable adventures” that will highlight journeys ranging from a ​West Village Drinking Tour with Jack Kerouac to ​72 Hours in Iceland​. Each will offer a free itinerary that customers can take away from the store, insider perks at select stops such as discounts, VIP treatment, etc., and an edited selection of the season’s apparel, footwear, gear and gifts targeted to the specific adventure.
The pop-up will also offer a series of in-store events such as fireside chats and product demos. The first will be a question-and-answer with adventure photographer Chris Burkard on Nov. 6.
“When we started Huckberry in our apartments back in 2011, our mission was the same then as it is now: to inspire and equip adventures near and far,” Huckberry cofounder Andy Forch said. “Today, we’re excited to take our mission offline and serve our largest market with a fun and inspiring shopping experience we hope will push the boundaries of experiential retail.”

Barbara Bush Celebrates Nuptials to Craig Coyne with Glitzy Post-Wedding Party in New York City

Party time!

Less than a week after tying the knot with screenwriter Craig Coyne during a private family ceremony in Maine, Barbara Bush invited some of her closest friends to celebrate her nuptials in New York City.

“Most amazing couple in all the land,” wrote one of her friends on Instagram Stories, alongside an image of the pair cuddled up close during the festive bash.

“Congrats @barbaritabush and Craig!!! Xoxoxo” she added.

Alongside another image, which appeared to be taken while Barbara was giving a speech that night, another one of her friend’s wrote, “Congratulations @barbaritabush + #CRAIG.”

In the image, the newlyweds are standing together while gazing into each other’s eyes. Sweetly, her pal also added a giant heart around the couple’s bodies.

RELATED: See Barbara Bush’s Stunning Wedding Photos from Her Surprise Celebration in Maine

In addition to featuring a pair of indoor swings and two fortune-telling oracles, the swinging soiree featured plenty of dancing underneath a giant disco ball.

In one video from the night, Barbara, 36, can be seen grooving with her pals on the dance floor.

“Sweden reunion to celebrate our favorite bride @barbaritabush,” one of her friends wrote alongside the short clip.

Following the celebration, Barbara’s twin sister Jenna Bush Hager went on to share a sweet shot of the duo getting photobombed by their father, former President George W. Bush.

“Thought this was just a simple picture of a sisterly hug,” she wrote alongside the image, adding the hashtag “popsiclephotobomb.”

RELATED: George W. Bush’s Daughter Barbara Wears Vera Wang Wedding Dress & Late Grandmother’s Bracelet

The bride chose a custom ivory silk crepe Vera Wang gown featuring a spaghetti strap detail and a cowl draped neckline. She paired it with a nude sandal, an elegant, translucent shawl, which draped over her shoulders and grazed the ground, and a sentimental reminder of her grandmother (and namesake), who died at age 92 in April.

“It’s really sweet. The ‘something borrowed’ that I’m wearing is this bracelet that my grandfather gave to my grandmother on their 70th anniversary,” Barbara told PEOPLE. Her “something blue” was a pair of earrings from Jenna.

During a phone call to her colleagues at the Today show, Jenna also revealed that she ended her wedding speech by reading a love letter her grandfather wrote to the former first lady.

RELATED: How George W. Bush Almost Spoiled His Daughter Barbara’s Proposal

Barbara told PEOPLE that her father “got so excited” when Coyne asked for her hand in marriage that he almost ended up ruining the proposal!

“Craig asked my dad for my hand in marriage, and my dad got so excited that he told everybody we were engaged, but we actually had not gotten engaged yet,” the former first daughter explained.

“They had a really long, wonderful talk for 45 minutes,” she added. “I started receiving text messages from people congratulating me on the engagement. Then, in slow motion, 20 minutes later, I would receive a text message from that person saying, ‘Oops, sorry! I meant to send that to somebody else.’ And so I had a suspicion we would get engaged.”

Coyne ended up popping the question in the exact spot — on oceanside rocks behind the Bush family’s Maine house — where her grandfather proposed to an 18-year-old Barbara Pierce 75 years earlier.

“I didn’t know Craig had found out the history. Of course, I cried — and our cousins were spying from the windows taking pictures,” Barbara remarked.

David Mallett Opens New York Salon at The Webster

David Mallett is bringing his signature brand of Parisian-chic hairdressing to New York.
Mallett, an Australian native whose taxidermy-filled eponymous salon in the Second Arrondissement is something of a fashion insider institution in Paris, is set to open a third location — his first in the U.S. and first outside Paris — on the top floor of Laure Hériard Dubreuil’s The Webster in SoHo, on Oct. 16.
The 1,600-square-foot space will operate as a full-service, eight-chair salon, with color, cutting, styling and treatment services overseen by Mallett himself and staffed by longtime employees of his Paris salons, including two hairdressers, two colorists and a client director. Mallett, who opened his second outpost at The Ritz Paris in 2016, will split his time between New York and Paris going forward.
The salon on the fifth floor of The Webster was designed by French architect Charles Zana to replicate the style of Mallett’s Paris salons, which are inspired by French-style craftsmanship. Lamps, furniture and other decor were custom-made for The Webster by François Pouenat, a fifth-generation French artisan metalworker. In a nod to his native Australia, Mallett partnered with Australia-based Dinosaur Designs’ Louise Olsen on accent pieces. Mallett purposefully to designed the New York space

Versace to Hold Pre-Fall Show in New York

NEW YORK BOUND: Donatella Versace will hold her Versace pre-fall collection in New York on Dec. 2 at 7 p.m., WWD has learned. The date has a special meaning for the designer, as it is her late brother Gianni’s birthday. Details about the location are being kept under wraps. This is the first time Versace plans a fashion show for the pre-fall season.
It is understood the decision to show in New York was made before the acquisition of the company last month by Michael Kors Holdings. In a $ 2.1 billion deal, Versace joined the Kors and Jimmy Choo brands under the Michael Kors Holdings umbrella, which is renaming itself Capri Holdings to reflect the growing and changing group.
The first week of December is shaping up as quite a fashionable one, as Chanel has scheduled its Métiers d’Art collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Dec. 4, as reported.
Other brands are bringing their pre-fall collections outside national borders. As reported, Valentino will hold a runway show in Tokyo on Nov. 27 to present its men’s and women’s pre-fall 2019 collection together for the first time, and Dior plans to stage its first men’s pre-fall runway show with a collection designed by Kim Jones scheduled

Camera della Moda Responds to New York Times Article

MILAN – A “saddened and concerned” Camera della Moda has responded to The New York Times article on “shadow workers” in Italy, which claims “thousands of low-paid home workers create luxury garments without contracts or insurance.”
”As the acclaimed writer, Edoardo Nesi acknowledges in his award-winning book, ‘Story of My People,’ published in 2013, the Italian supply chain has been under attack for a long time,” the group said in an official statement. “CNMI and its members are committed to working toward making the Italian supply chain resilient, fair and humane on every front. It is a complex process and it takes time; there are no easy solutions, but we are working together through our established Working Group on Social Sustainability and have already achieved substantive gains. We continue to implement solutions using our evidence-base and by working collaboratively.”
At a fashion show here, Carlo Capasa, president of the association, told WWD that this progress was overlooked by Times.
“For example, the NYT article uses statistics on homeworkers that date back to 1973,” read the statement. “The only recent statistics cited are from Tania Toffanin, the author of ‘Fabbriche Invisibili’ who estimated that ‘currently there are 2,000 to 4,000 irregular homeworkers in apparel production.’ Setting this in the context of

We are thrilled to create the show with our amazing team: Brian Phillips and Black Frame, Alex de Betak and Bureau Betak, IMG and our beauty and hair teams: James Kaliardos using NARS Cosmetics, Odile Gilbert for TRESemmé hair.”
Phillips told WWD that the show is planned Sunday, Sept. 9 but a location hasn’t been determined yet. For the last three seasons, Rodarte has been showing in Paris, once in a runway setting and the other two times with showroom appointments. “They’re excited to be back,” said Phillips.
Rodarte, the Los Angeles-based label designed by Kate and Laura Mulleavy, decided against showing at Paris Couture Week this month. For fall 2018, the designers showed their collection in Paris via a portrait portfolio featuring some of the women who inspire them.

Ben Sherman to Return to New York Retailing

Marquee Brands has breathed new life into Ben Sherman since acquiring the label two years ago. And on Sept. 1, the brand known for its bright British-inspired men’s wear will reenter the New York market with a store in SoHo.
The 2,000-square-foot store at 130 Greene Street will be open through the holidays and will offer monthly programming and activations ranging from a speaker series and influencer dinners to concerts. In terms of merchandise, it will carry the entire Ben Sherman collection, which ranges from ready-to-wear and bespoke suits to footwear and jewelry, as well as limited-edition pieces. There will also be a full-service shirt bar that harkens back to the history of the brand, which was founded in Brighton, England, in 1963 as a young men’s, “Mod”-inspired shirt line. It has since evolved into a lifestyle brand targeting men between 25 and 40 years old.
The store will be the only location in the U.S. to carry the entire Ben Sherman x House of Holland capsule collection. The company teamed with British fashion designer Henry Holland for a collection of unisex styles. The collection was shown on the runway at London Collections Men earlier this year and complements the main Ben

Christian Siriano on Emmys, Inclusivity and New York Fashion Week

Christian Siriano made a summer stop in Los Angeles this week, just in time for Thursday’s Emmy nominations announcement. That night, he hosted a dinner at Chateau Marmont with 11 Honoré, the size-inclusive luxury e-commerce site cofounded by Patrick Herning and Kathryn Retzer. Said Herning, “Christian was one of the first designers we launched with and he’s still one of our best-selling designers a year later. He’s really on board with changing the game.” The designer’s inclusive approach to retail and celebrity dressing has heightened his profile, but he remains as down-to-earth and energetic as ever. “I’m always up sending e-mails in the middle of the night, because otherwise, what are you going to do? We’re there for our customers.”
WWD: When was the last time you were in L.A.?
Christian Siriano: I came for my book launch last November and for a few quick Oscar fittings in January. We dressed almost 17 people and I barely was here. I don’t know how we did that; it was crazy.

EXCLUSIVE: Longchamp to Stage First Fashion Show in New York

PARIS — In one of the latest twists in the trans-Atlantic fashion show shuffle, Longchamp is planning to stage its first official runway show at New York Fashion Week this fall. Known for its best-selling Le Pliage bag, the French leather goods firm has expanded its ready-to-wear offering over recent years as part of its repositioning as a lifestyle brand.
The New York show is scheduled for Sept. 8, with the venue yet to be confirmed. The family-owned brand also plans to stage an event on its home turf at the Opéra Garnier in Paris on Sept. 11.
The NYFW show will cap Longchamp’s 70th anniversary celebrations and a U.S.-centric year for the brand. Building on its ambition to be seen as a fashion brand, Longchamp in May opened its Fifth Avenue flagship with a dedicated space for rtw and shoes in the center of the main floor, and launched a clothing and accessories capsule with Shayne Oliver. Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner, the new brand ambassador, is on board for four seasons, beginning with the fall 2018 campaign.
When asked if the New York show will be a one-off, Sophie Delafontaine, Longchamp’s artistic director, said: “We felt that this was the right time to take things to the next level and

EXCLUSIVE: VFiles Announces Runway 10 Show, Mentor Committee for New York Fashion Week

It’s back to the runway for VFiles, which will be holding its 10th show on Sept. 5.
Last season, instead of the traditional runway/performance extravaganza the company hosts, it staged “Be Heart, Make Noise,” an immersive music and fashion event done in collaboration with Adidas Originals. In the past, runway shows included celebrity guest judges such as Khloé Kardashian and Young Thug. For VFiles Runway 10, the brand is bringing its event a bit more down to earth by, for the first time, appointing a committee of eight industry leaders that will select and mentor show contestants throughout their journey to New York Fashion Week. After that, the VFiles team will provide mentorship for the following season. The pivot brings a slightly more serious — yet welcome — tone to the show that has otherwise been high on experimental fashion.
The mentor committee includes: Julie Anne Quay, founder and chief executive officer of VFiles; Laura Brown, editor in chief of InStyle magazine; Rio Uribe, designer and founder of Gypsy Sport; Candy Pratts Price, fashion consultant; Anna Trevelyan, stylist and creative consultant; Erin Magee, founder of MadeMe; Paul Cupo, designer, and James Costas-Michael, merchandise director of VFiles.

L.A. Beauty Agency Forward Artists to Open New York Outpost

Los Angeles-based beauty agency Forward Artists, which represents top talent in the hair, makeup, styling and grooming fields – including wardrobe stylists Rob Zangardi, Mariel Haenn and Micaela Erlanger, makeup artists Pati Dubroff and Melanie Inglessis and hair stylists Giannandrea and John D – has opened a New York office.

Noted Dubrof, “I’m proud to be part of an agency that truly values the artist and agent relationship by fostering the communication needs of both. A bicoastal presence will open exciting new doors for growth and collaboration with New York artists and clients.”
Said cofounder Spencer Spaulding, “We’ve had many artists and clients reaching out wondering if/when we planned on opening in New York but I only wanted to do it if it happened organically. Growth has been mindful to ensure a healthy business and that artists are properly taken care of. We have never wanted to blow-up into a monopoly of artists.

New York Men’s Dates to Move to June in 2019

Don’t get too attached to the July dates for New York Fashion Week: Men’s — they’re changing.
Starting next year, the Council of Fashion Designers of America will shift the dates for the spring men’s shows to the first week in June. This will not only coincide with the fledgling New York women’s resort season, but will also allow American designers to show before their European counterparts.
London has historically kicked off the spring season with shows that start this year on Saturday. That’s followed by Pitti Uomo in Florence, Milan and Paris. For six seasons, NYFW: Men’s has brought up the rear with shows in mid-July.
But a successful mega, 10-day, dual-gender fashion week this past February has prompted the shift starting in 2019.
“The July timing is problematic for a lot of brands,” said Mark Beckham, vice president of marketing for the Council of Fashion Designers of America. “So this will be the last NYFW: Men’s in July.”
In February, he said, the men’s shows will once again be timed to run on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before the women’s calendar starts on Thursday. ”It worked really well,” he said. But the spring shows will now start before London.

Harrys of London Opens New York Flagship

NEW YORK — Charles Cohen is just getting started.
It was just over a year ago that the billionaire commercial real estate developer purchased Harrys of London, a U.K.-based footwear and accessories label. And today, Cohen has opened the doors to the brand’s first retail store, a boutique with 770 square feet of selling space on Park Avenue and 57th Street. The store is adjacent to a space that will house a 2,000-square-foot Richard James store, the other British men’s wear brand in which Cohen bought a majority stake last March. That store is expected to open in late August.
Both brands were personal favorites of Cohen’s and were searching for new owners, so the developer stepped up and purchased them. But he’s hardly been an absentee owner. He serves as chairman for both labels and has immersed himself in reinventing the brands by modernizing and updating them.
“It’s been an exciting adventure,” Cohen said. “And it’s gone better than I ever imagined.” In fact, he said he’s just about to finalize his third fashion acquisition, one that will be “complementary” to Harrys and Richard James. He declined to provide more details, but said this one is not a British brand.
At Harrys, Cohen parted ways

Bill Cunningham to Be Focus of Upcoming Exhibition at the New York Historical Society

BILL’S NEW YORK: Street photographer Bill Cunningham was unquestionably a man of the city. The sidewalks of New York were his round-the-clock runway. Now the New York Historical Society has announced a special exhibition, “Celebrating Bill Cunningham,” that will be view on June 8 through Sept. 9.
Friends and friends’ family members of The New York Times lensman, who died in 2016 at the age of 87, provided the wide-ranging items for the show. Some New Yorkers will recognize the bicycle he used to pedal to and from assignments regardless of the weather or the hour.

Visitors to the Upper West Side museum will also find his first camera, an Olympus Pen-D 35mm, and his signature sparrow blue jacket. Other mementos include photographs of Cunningham with friends and correspondence, including handmade Valentines he liked to send to friends.
After moving to New York from his home state of Massachusetts, Cunningham worked for a period as a milliner under the label William J. The hats that will be displayed will include a beach one, as well as

Peter Marino Receives French Honor in New York

Peter Marino swapped his trademark biker leathers for wool — above the waist, at least — at a ceremony Monday night at the cultural arm of the French Embassy in New York.
That smoothed the pinning on his chest of the medal for his latest honor: Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters.
“Do you recognize it? You made it for me 15 years ago,” Marino explained to LVMH Fashion Group honcho Sidney Toledano, as he stroked the covered placket of the cropped style, in black to match his leather pants and high police boots. Toledano had presided over Dior and Dior Homme when its ateliers turned out the sharp-shouldered garment.
Toledano and Chanel’s Alain Wertheimer were among French luxury executives — marquee clients of the acclaimed American architect — who turned out for the event.
Marino’s retail projects also include gleaming flagships for Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, Ermenegildo Zegna and others — though his initial claim to fame was the Madison Avenue flagship of Barneys New York back in 1985.
“And Barneys was clearly blown away with your work because they hired you to design 17 more of their department stores,” Bénédicte de Montlaur, cultural counselor of the French Embassy, told a small crowd

Saint Laurent to Stage Show in New York on June 6

BE A PART OF IT: Having harnessed the power of the Eiffel Tower in his last two women’s ready-to-wear shows, Anthony Vaccarello now has his eye on the Big Apple.
The designer will stage his next show for Saint Laurent in New York City on June 6, according to sources familiar with the label’s plans. Such a move would be a powerful endorsement for New York Fashion Week, which has seen a clutch of designers defect to other locations in recent seasons.
Officials at Saint Laurent declined to comment on the house’s plans.
The New York calendar is in flux, following Alexander Wang’s decision to move his show to June from September. In tandem with Wang’s move, the Council of Fashion Designers of America has put into motion plans for official summer and winter fashion seasons taking place as soon as June and December 2018.
The CFDA’s web site lists June 2 to 6 as the dates for the next New York Fashion Week, to be followed by New York Fashion Week: Men’s from July 8 to 10. It is sticking to its main women’s season from Sept. 5 to 11.

The Standard High Line Brings ‘Parkland 17’ Installation to New York for ‘March for Our Lives’

The Standard, High Line is supporting the March for Our Lives this weekend with the unveiling of Parkland 17, a commemorative exhibition and call to action curated by artist Calyann Barnett, done with the support of Dwayne Wade. The installation, which was most recently on display at Wynwood Art Walk in Miami on March 10 for a 17-hour residence, is comprised of 17 desks.
Taking place on Saturday and Sunday, the installation will also feature a live mural painting of the phrase “we demand change” by artist Manuel Oliver. The hotel will also have open a call to action center, their ‘ring your rep’ phone booths, where people can phone representatives of Congress regarding gun control.
“The Standard originally became involved when Dwayne Wade approached us while he was working on the Parkland 17 installation for the Wynwood Art Walk. He wanted the installation to commemorate the lives lost, but also offer a call to action, and instinctively recruited the help of our Ring Your Rep phone booth from The Standard Spa, Miami Beach,” said Landis Smithers, chief creative officer of Standard International. “With the March for Our Lives imminent, it felt only right to bring Parkland 17 to our space

Louis Vuitton Opens Sneaker Pop-Up in New York

Ugly sneakers have stampeded into luxury fashion to become the improbable “it” shoe in the last year. So much so that Louis Vuitton, where Nicolas Ghesquiere introduced the Nineties sci-fi Archlight with a generously proportioned cushy sole for spring, is opening a pop-up shop specifically devoted to the style for a month in New York City. The temporary store will open at 122 Greene Street in SoHo on Thursday in advance of the worldwide launch of the Archlight sneaker on Feb. 23. The store will remain open until March 10. The SoHo space, chosen because the sneaker clientele tends to be a downtown crowd, and designed by the Louis Vuitton team, will be the only sneaker pop-up — the house has done fragrance pop-ups in the past — and will carry an exclusive all-black colorway of the style. Sneakers aren’t new for Vuitton but the Archlight was a major statement on Ghesquiere’s spring runway, shown in contrast to the elaborate 18th-century inspired ready-to-wear pieces.

The Louis Vuitton Archlight sneaker in all black will be exclusive to the SoHo pop-up.

Upbeat Mood Prevails at New York Men’s Trade Shows

NEW YORK — New year, bright outlook.
That sums up the mood of specialty stores shopping the men’s trade shows here. A strong end to 2017, a soaring stock market and some tempting merchandise options for fall all combined to boost retailers’ spirits.
“Holiday was great,” said Ken Giddon, president of Rothmans, which operates three men’s stores in New York. “There have been some weather difficulties in January but that’s OK. We had a surprisingly strong fall so inventories are not what we had expected. My mood is good — it’s an exciting time to be a retailer.”
He said he has been working more with his suppliers to create partnerships that benefit both. “Every conversation is not: ‘What are you selling and how much is it?’ But it’s, ‘How can we work together.’ That’s what it’s going to take to make the wholesale model work today and I actually enjoy making deals almost more than I enjoy looking at merchandise.”
That said, Giddon did manage to find several brands that he liked at the shows. “I’m surprised at how many great Scandinavian brands there are,” he said, pointing to the Scandinavian Man section at Project. He especially liked Hestra gloves and Cords trousers.

Eclectic to Bring Its French Sensibility to New York City

Franck Malègue has had a long-standing love affair with New York City, so it’s no surprise that he chose Manhattan as the location for his first store outside of Paris.
The owner and designer of Eclectic, a men’s outerwear brand, will open a 1,600-square-foot store at 27 Greene Street, next to The Webster, early next year. It will join his two shops in Paris, in Le Marais and off the Avenue Montaigne, and a concession shop at Le Bon Marché.
The Paris-born Malègue started Eclectic in 2011 after spending several years in brand development for cosmetics, accessories and ready-to-wear companies. The tight collection of coats and jackets blends traditional designs with high-tech materials in a line he describes as “active tailoring,” or “tailored urbanwear” that “bridges together durability, functionality and elegance.”
Eclectic offers just 18 styles and each piece uses a canvas interlining in the front panels and lapels to give the garments shape and employs technical fibers and fabrics such as Cordura, Airnet, bi-stretch cotton and microfibers to provide wind- and water-repellency, stretch and other properties for today’s active man. One example is a sport coat in a 3-D mesh that Nike uses for its shoes.

New York Cares and The Fashion Foundation Help New Yorkers in Need

‘TIS THE SEASON: More than halfway to its goal of collecting 125,000 donated coats, this year’s annual New York Cares Coat Drive has less than a week to go.
New Yorkers can drop off coats at multiple locations including the group’s West 31st Street warehouse, any New York Police Department precinct, all Queens library branches and Grand Central Terminal or Penn Station through Dec. 31. Those who don’t have jackets to give can text “coat” to 41444 to donate money that will be used by the nonprofit to buy and deliver coats. The city has at least 1.7 million people living below the poverty line including 60,000 who are without permanent housing, according to a New York Cares spokeswoman.
The group has collected and donated 1.8 million coats to New Yorkers in need over the past 29 years. This year’s requests from shelters, social service agencies and schools is an increase compared to last year’s tally of 109,000 coats.
Another local group, The Fashion Foundation, recently wrapped up another charitable initiative.

Mario Batali Spotted in New York City for the First Time After Sexual Misconduct Accusations

Mario Batali was spotted in public for the first time since five women came forward to accuse the celebrity chef of sexual misconduct.

The 57-year-old headed out for lunch in New York City on Wednesday, wearing his signature look of fleece vest and shorts. However, he swapped out his signature Crocs for a pair of grey-and-orange Yeezys. Batali covered up in a baseball cap, sunglasses and a black scarf.

The chef has withdrawn from his businesses and been fired from ABC’s The Chew after four women accused him of “inappropriate touching in a pattern of behavior that spans at least two decades” in an Eater story published earlier this month. Another woman, actress Siobhan Thompson, also came forward to claim Batali “inappropriately touched her breasts” while she worked as a hostess at one of his restaurants.

RELATED VIDEO: Celebrity Chef Mario Batali Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Multiple Women

Batali came under fire again last Friday when he apologized for his bad behavior in a newsletter to fans that included a recipe for pizza dough cinnamon rolls.

“As many of you know, this week there has been some news coverage about some of my past behavior,” Batali wrote on Friday. “I have made many mistakes and I am so very sorry that I have disappointed my friends, my family, my fans and my team. My behavior was wrong and there are no excuses. I take full responsibility.”

“Sharing the joys of Italian food, tradition and hospitality with all of you, each week, is an honor and privilege. Without the support of all of you — my fans — I would never have a forum in which to expound on this. I will work every day to regain your respect and trust,” he continued, signing the letter “mb.”

He then added a post script: “In case you’re searching for a holiday-inspired breakfast, these Pizza Dough Cinnamon Rolls are a fan favorite.” A photo of the dessert and a link to the recipe followed.

In a statement to Eater about the original accusations, Batali said, “I apologize to the people I have mistreated and hurt. Although the identities of most of the individuals mentioned in these stories have not been revealed to me, much of the behavior described does, in fact, match up with ways I have acted. That behavior was wrong and there are no excuses. I take full responsibility and am deeply sorry for any pain, humiliation or discomfort I have caused to my peers, employees, customers, friends and family.”

“I know my actions have disappointed many people,” he continued. “The successes I have enjoyed are owned by everyone on my team. The failures are mine alone. To the people who have been at my side during this time — my family, my partners, my employees, my friends, my fans — I am grateful for your support and hopeful that I can regain your respect and trust. I will spend the next period of time trying to do that.”

Happy Socks Opens New York Flagship

Happy Socks is embarking on its largest retail push in North America.
In September, the Swedish sock brand, which was launched in 2008, revealed that it ended its license deal with United Legwear and starting in January it would operate in the U.S. market directly — under the United Legwear deal, they opened a store in SoHo in 2013.
This space, which is located at 448 West Broadway, a couple shops away from its original store, has served as a pop-up for Hysteria, Happy Sock’s recently launched women’s line, but now it will act as a permanent flagship.
The 518-square-foot store will sell Hysteria along with Happy Socks’ entire assortment including Dressed, its line of men’s dress socks, and the Happy Socks branded collection including collaborative product.

Maria Cornejo to Serve as Brand Ambassador at Première Vision New York

CORNEJO’S CRYSTAL CLEAR VISION: Première Vision and the Council of Fashion Designers of America have crowned Maria Cornejo as the brand ambassador for next month’s Première Vision New York.
The designer is crafting a selection of exclusive designs for the show, putting to use textiles from the Swiss company Schoeller Textil. She said of the collaboration, “First, I am a total fabric nerd. I start always with fabric, draping. That’s the way we design the collection, designing the fabric. Secondly, the collection is going more and more toward sustainability.”
The show will run Jan. 16 and 17 at Pier 94 in New York.
The opportunity to work with Schoeller, the 2017 Fashion Smart Creation prize at the last PV Awards, was a selling point for Cornejo who also commended the company’s avant-garde reputation in this arena. The Swiss textiles maker was honored for its double-face fabric with a color-contrasting back in ECONYL yarn. “This was an amazing opportunity. There was no reservation for me to do it because it was also about spotlighting sustainability, showing that it doesn’t have to be boring,” she said. “It can be design. It doesn’t have to be granola or look beige. There are different ways to approach

Thom Sweeney Opens First Store Outside the U.K. in New York

NEW YORK — Thom Sweeney is making a statement with its first U.S. store.
The London-based brand that got its start as a bespoke maker in 2006, today will take the wraps off a 3,000-square-foot store at 362 West Broadway in SoHo — its first unit outside its home country.
The store stocks the brand’s ready-to-wear — which it started producing in 2013 — and has a large room dedicated to fittings for its signature made-to-measure and custom garments. It also features a special cutting room where a U.K.-based cutter will visit once a month to tend to clients along with a bar and lounge areas to encourage customers to stay a while.
“We think it stands out because there’s nothing else in the area like it,” said Thom Whiddett, who founded the brand with Luke Sweeney.
The two men met while they were both working for British tailor Timothy Everest — Whiddett as an apprentice and Sweeney as the head of the made-to-measure department. They decided to team to create the Thom Sweeney label, setting up shop in a small apartment in Mayfair, where they took private orders.
In 2009, they opened a bespoke studio in a former art gallery on Weighhouse Street, followed

Sarah Jessica Parker to Open New York Pop-up Shop

Sarah Jessica Parker’s SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker brand will open a New York pop-up for the holiday season.
To be located at 640 Fifth Avenue with an entrance at 52nd Street, the 1,600-square-foot shop will sell an assortment of shoes — including styles reissued from the brand’s 2014 launch collection.
SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker’s line of little black dresses and handbags will also be on sale.
The shop is to be open on Black Friday, Nov. 24, and remain open through Dec. 3. Parker is expected to periodically drop into the store to greet shoppers.
“Having a home in New York for our SJP Collection has been only a seeming fantasy since we launched our brand almost four years ago.​ So it is with unbridled excitement that we share the news that we have indeed found that home, right off Fifth Avenue, in the heart of Midtown,” Parker said.
The actress, producer and designer’s business partner, George Malkemus, added: ”The very idea of the ultimate New York girl opening a pop-up and, on top of it, one opposite the famous 21 Club, has me pinching myself again and again. I couldn’t be happier for my dear, dear friend and partner, Sarah Jessica Parker.”

Street Signs: ‘Friendly’ Sneakersnstuff Rolls Out Welcome Mat in New York

Erik Fagerlind, who cofounded the specialty sneaker chain Sneakersnstuff with Peter Jansson in 1999, says 80 percent of its business now comes from e-commerce sales — up from 50 percent five years ago. But physical retail remains a significant part of its growth strategy outside of home country of Sweden, having planted shops in London, Paris, Berlin and now New York.
“In a world where everything is available and accessible, you have to provide a little bit more than product,” Fagerlind said. “You have to provide the service to be relevant with your consumer.”
Sneakersnstuff will bring its popular concept to New York in early December. The 3,500-square-foot shop will be located in the Meatpacking District, designed by Jenny Askenfors of Bofink Design Studio and feature a basement bar. Wil Whitney, who has deep roots in the New York skate and streetwear scene — he was a former manager at Stüssy, helped start Nom de Guerre, a men’s wear brand and Brooklyn shop that closed in 2010, and most recently worked for Noah — will manage the boutique. There are plans to open a Los Angeles flagship in 2018.
In Fagerlind’s view, the Meatpacking District was the ideal spot because it’s not saturated with

Why Supreme Opened a Second New York Store

NEW YORK — After more than 20 years of being in business, Supreme’s Manhattan store was beginning to bust at the seams.
The streetwear brand had alleviated the lines and crowds with a new release system — customers no longer need to camp out as they put their name on a list and enter the store during a designated time slot — but demand for the product has continued to increase, which is why the team opted for a 3,000-square-foot store in Brooklyn at 152 Grand Street between Bedford Avenue and Berry Street. On Thursday morning, when the shop opened to the public, Mayor Bill De Blasio commemorated the occasion by cutting the ribbon, which was appropriately covered with the Supreme logo.
“The truth is we maxed out on the Manhattan space. We were at capacity,” said Angelo Baque, Supreme’s former brand director who started his own creative agency but still oversees art direction for the company. “We couldn’t serve any more customers or sell more items.”
The new, larger space follows Supreme’s retail formula: wooden fixtures, sparse merchandising that lines the perimeter of the store, a flat screen playing skate videos in the window and a couple of concrete blocks for seating. The

Brett Johnson to Open Store in New York

Brett Johnson is taking the plunge into retail.
The designer, who launched his eponymous men’s wear collection in 2013, will open his first store in SoHo on Thursday.
The unit at 109 Mercer Street between Prince and Spring Streets, will have 1,600 square feet of selling space and around 1,400 square feet devoted to showrooms and offices. There will be a soft opening this week and a grand-opening party is scheduled for Oct. 12.
Johnson, who was formerly based in Virginia, has relocated to New York to be closer to the business.
“For us, it’s just easier to control everything from out of the store,” he said. “Our clientele is primarily based in New York, so it just made sense.”
Johnson, the son of Black Entertainment Television founders Robert and Sheila Johnson, got his start designing his own interpretation of the Nike Air Force One sneakers and then branched out into apparel. The Brett Johnson line of outerwear, knitwear, woven shirts and trousers are all manufactured in Florence.
The collection has been sold at Neiman Marcus as well as a handful of specialty stores in the U.S. He said the best-selling items are outerwear and knitwear, but the store will also offer made-to-measure, a category that

Marilyn Manson Hospitalized After Massive Stage Prop Collapses During New York City Concert

Marilyn Manson‘s New York City concert ended abruptly Saturday night after a stage prop collapsed on top of him, causing him to be brought to a hospital for his injuries.

The 48-year-old rocker was performing a cover of the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” about 45 minutes into his Hammerstein Ballroom show when he began to climb a structure displaying two giant gun props, Variety reports. The podium began to wobble, then Manson fell backwards with the prop coming down on top of him.

The house and stage lights went off for several minutes. They then came back on with an announcer saying the show was over “due to injury.”

The singer’s representative told Variety, “Manson suffered an injury towards the end of an incredible NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital.” The extent of the injuries is unknown.

A representative for Manson did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for further comment.

Eyewitness Anthony Biscardi told the BBC that Manson was covered by a black sheet before he could be taken off stage on a stretcher, adding that the performer was “pretty limp, almost as though he was unconscious.”

At his Friday night show in Pittsburgh, Manson reportedly tumbled off the stage during his concert. He told the crowd he broke his ankle before calling his tour manager a “fascist,” according to Loudwire.

Manson was three dates into his The Heaven Upside Down Tour in support of his 10th studio album, which is due to be released this Friday. He was scheduled to perform in Boston on Monday night.

It was not immediately clear if any of Manson’s concert dates will be postponed due to the incident.
