Selfridges Unveils New Generation Office Space

NEW HUB: After a long and ambitious renovation project of its accessories and men’s wear departments, Selfridges is now applying its flair for creative architecture and experiences to its executive, buying and merchandising offices, located on Duke Street, next to its London store. For the refurbishment project, the British retailer appointed architect Alex Cochrane, a longtime collaborator, to transform the department store’s 19,700-square-foot head office — a process that took up to two years to complete. The aim was to create a more creative and collaborative workspace environment, as well as incorporate sustainable design elements. Cue pink glass telephone booths, bright red box seats in a dedicated table tennis area and glossy green or magenta shelves. The space also features materials such as renewable wood paneling and solar panels to further the retailer’s commitment to sustainability. Earlier this year, the retailer also announced plans to ban exotic skins from its store as part of its sustainability efforts. It’s also ditching assigned work spaces in favor of open-plan workrooms in its buying and merchandizing area — dubbed the Hub — in a bid to be more aligned to the nomadic nature of the buying team’s busy travel schedule. The company added that everything within the space,

Versace Provides Travel Kits for Turkish Airlines Business Class Intercontinental Travelers

VERSACE FRESHENS UP: Duty-free shopping in airports can be a blood sport for harried travelers who tend to fall into two camps — killing time or crunched for time. Turkish Airlines travelers can skip the last-minute blitz for moisturizer, lip balm and other in-flight sundries, since the carrier will be providing them with travel kits from Versace or Mandarina Duck. Business-class passengers taking intercontinental flights will get the Versace assortment. Female fliers will find socks, earplugs, a sleep mask, warning stickers, Versace lip balm, hand lotion, facial mist and a hair clasp all contained in a zippered orange case. The men’s version is slightly different and is stowed away on a black case. To keep the pearly whites intact, there are travel-size Colgate toothpaste tubes as part of the deal. Staying squeaky clean is truly in fashion, as evidenced by Naomi Campbell’s viral “airport routine” video, which was filmed on a Qatar Airways plane. More than 1.4 million people have watched the five-minute spot on her YouTube channel. The supermodel breaks out her pre-packed plastic gloves to scrub down her business class surroundings, “cleaning anything that you touch or could possibly touch.” Turkish Airlines isn’t just offering its business-class passengers some special pampering

Locarno Film Review: ‘Vitalina Varela’

Frequently beautiful compositions and the theatrical use of a fierce kind of artifice have long been the hallmarks of Portuguese auteur Pedro Costa, regarded by a small but influential group of aesthetes as one of the great filmmakers of our era. For those in tune with his vision, the director’s films offer an exciting lesson […]

Bergdorf Goodman is hoping to attract sneakerheads by partnering with Goat for a special installation at its men’s store that will run through New York Fashion Week. On Wednesday, the retailer and the Los Angeles-based sneaker reseller will open an installation at the Goodman’s Men’s Store that will showcase some highly coveted models including Chanel’s collaboration with Pharrell on the Adidas NMD Human Race Trail, and the auto-lacing Air Mag Back to the Future. Both will be on display in the store and will also be available for purchase for $ 16,400 and $ 47,250 respectively. “Sneakers and athletic-driven sportswear have been a leading component of the designer and luxury men’s wear world, and we see this influence continuing to be very important,” said Bruce Pask, men’s fashion director for Bergdorf Goodman. “Goat is an innovator and leader in the resale space with an elevated aesthetic, peerless expertise and a focus on customer experience and service — aspects that we absolutely share, making this a perfectly suited partnership and an exciting new experience that our customers can only find at Bergdorf Goodman.” Pask said he met Matt Cohen, Goat’s vice president of business development and strategy, a little over a year ago, and they visited the

Jamie Foxx and Sylvester Stallone’s Daughters, Corinne and Sistine, Costar in “47 Meters Down: Uncaged”

“I don’t think I fully thought it through,” said Corinne Foxx, 25, of accepting a starring role in Johannes Roberts’ shark thriller “47 Meters Down: Uncaged,” out today. “The director asked me, ‘What’s your swimming ability like?’ I said, ‘It’s great, it’s wonderful,’ and then I got there, and I couldn’t even doggy paddle.” “They told me I got the part on a Thursday, and by Sunday, I was on a plane,” she continued. She was given the part after another actress turned it down and learned to both swim and scuba dive in four days. “It’s survival. Either you swim or you don’t swim, so I had to figure it out. I don’t know what I was thinking, but it paid off.” Along with being the daughters of well-established, respected actors, Jamie Foxx and Sylvester Stallone, Corinne and her costar Sistine Stallone, 21, have a number of other similarities. They have both modeled, been Miss Golden Globe — the tradition that ended in 2017 of celebrity offspring assisting in handing out award trophies to winners — and now, they’re in their first feature film. “It’s been fun, because it’s my first press circuit for my own movie,” said Foxx of being asked the

For That Special Day: Karen Walker Creates Bridal Collection

Just as every bride has a story — or more likely 100 stories — designer Karen Walker wants to be part of that narrative with a new bridal collection. The Auckland, New Zealand-based designer has created an assortment of wedding-day styles, after years of customers requesting bridal dresses or outfits. Until now, the timing never felt right, Walker said. But that did not deter many from buying various Karen Walker designs to wear for their big day. “But they had never been designed specifically for that intent,” she explained. Now there are 12 bespoke dresses, four bespoke suits and two off-the-rack dresses “for those wanting to elope,” Walker said. Retail prices range from $ 950 to $ 3,500 and are sold through the new bridal shop in her Auckland boutique and online store. Bespoke shoppers can work directly with her team that includes patternmakers, tailors and other specialists in her atelier or via e-mail, FaceTime or other means. Fittings and creating toiles are all part of the package. Such procedures have been put to use for six international high-profile clients over the past 12 months. That roster included former First Lady Michelle Obama, who needed a suit for her “Becoming” book tour. Walker said,

Hannah Godwin of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Talks Drama-Free Shoot, ‘Making Pretty Powerful’ for Kensie

ABC’s “Bachelor in Paradise” is all about the drama, but the reality show’s Hannah Godwin has a more direct message in Kensie’s fall campaign. In an interview Tuesday, the 24-year-old talked about the brand’s “#Make Pretty Powerful” marketing initiative, but she wasn’t about to reveal anything about the show. Godwin edged into modeling as a high schooler, going on to appear in print ads, catalogues, e-commerce sites, music videos and commercials, particularly in the Southeast and on the West Coast. Photography is another pursuit. Having bought Kensie as a teenager, she said, “They have very cute clothes, which made me pick up their things. It’s good quality. You can rewear a lot of the stuff, which I really love. I will keep them in my closet for a year and just rewear them a bunch of different ways.” Dove Shore photographed the campaign in Beverly Hills in what the reality star described as “a magical dollhouse.” But one that was free from any sign of Dylan Barbour, Blake Horstmann or any of Godwin’s other televised admirers. In addition to the abundance of bikinis and cut-off shorts that Godwin wore for “BIP,” she also wore a few tanks. “It was so hot there. I

Darq Review

I’m a coward when it comes to nightmares, so Darq’s premise of a psychological horror game set in a lucid dream was enough to make me uncomfortably squirm in my chair on its own. My brain already loves to put me through the wringer with restless dreams, so I was worried that Darq’s subject matter might be too much for me. But its somber monochromatic visuals and puzzles that bend the laws of physics were too alluring of a sirensong, and I’m glad they pulled me to play it because, even at its most bleak, Darq is beautiful.

Darq fixates on submerging you in a dreamscape and doesn’t elaborate much in the way of a backstory. There’s no initial title screen, even; instead, a decaying apartment with a boy quivering at the center. This is Darq’s protagonist, Lloyd. He’s at the mercy of his unconscious mind, desperate to wake up – but I only know even those few details from perusing Darq’s official website. The story is intentionally opaque to replicate that “fuzzy details” feeling when you try to recall a dream from memory – more thoughts and feelings, less plot and exposition – which works in its favor.
