James Harden and Daniel Patrick to Create Capsule

Daniel Patrick and NBA superstar James Harden are cooking up a capsule collection. The designer previewed the basketball-inspired offering and two pairs of Adidas Harden 4.0 sneakers at an event in New York City on Wednesday that drew NBA athletes P.J. Tucker and Javale McGee and other guests. The two pieces that Patrick teased, a tan hoodie and black basketball shorts, are signature styles for Patrick, who launched his own label with his wife, Jenny, in 2011. The hoodie is oversized with a taller, basketball short waistband, velvet in its hood and neon green fat stripes on the sleeves that Patrick said he “wanted to be the focal point of the collection.” The black basketball shorts have a neon green waistband and velvet pockets to match the hoodie. Both pieces feature dual tags that have Patrick and Harden’s signatures, a rubberized 3-D logo and Adidas badge of sport logo, which Patrick explained is done differently in the capsule. “We got the outline without the symbol so it’s more of a graphic,” the designer said. The Harden 4.0 sneakers, which the Houston Rockets star will be wearing beginning Nov. 1, also sport neon green colors — one totally on the upper with a gray toe,

First Look: Hugo Boss Capsule Collection by Leading Industrial Designer Konstantin Grcic

Hugo Boss has collaborated with Konstantin Grcic, one of Germany’s most influential industrial designers, on a limited capsule collection for fall 2019. Grcic’s award-winning work in seating and lighting is featured in the permanent collections of the world’s leading museums, including MoMA in New York and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris; in 2010, he was named designer of the year at Design Miami. Over his almost three-decades-long career, Grcic is perhaps best known for his focus on utility and simplicity — high fashion seems rather a long way from his usual remit. But not at all, Grcic told WWD as he showed off his Boss capsule collection in his airy Berlin studio, a converted factory floor with large windows and long white desks. “Beauty has a function, too,” he explained. “And if things are only practical, and not appealing, then you have a very different relationship to those objects. “I don’t want to stretch the metaphor too far but chairs come close to something that we almost wear,” he added. Grcic’s chairs have won design prizes and several feature in museum collections. “So it’s not a completely strange world to me.” This isn’t his first tie-up with a fashion brand either: In the

Rodarte Presents Eighties-Themed Capsule Collection at L.A. Roller Disco Party

It was an Eighties-themed night seemingly off the set of “Stranger Things” inside Milk Studios on Thursday in Los Angeles, where Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy showcased a limited-edition capsule collection. “We wanted something that spoke to nostalgia a little bit, but also felt of-the-moment,” shared Laura of the event, a collaboration with IMG’s Made and Mastercard. Neon lights filled the room, which featured a see-now-buy-now Fred Segal Sunset pop-up in the style of a romanticized teenage bedroom. The line of T-shirts, selling for $ 150 each, and sweatshirts for $ 280 — with “Radarte” written across the front — is a collaboration with artist Mari Eastman and sold exclusively at the retail store starting today until Aug. 14. “Made approached us and said that they were going to do a series of projects where they want you to unite with an artist,” said Laura prior to the presentation, which had models strutting around a makeshift roller-skating rink. “We immediately thought, ‘Oh, this is an amazing opportunity to work with an artist that we admire,’ and we’ve known Mari for years. She’s an amazing painter and professor. Everything was very organic, and it was just a step-by-step process of doing something that was heartfelt

YG Celebrates Release of Summer Capsule

LOS ANGELES — “Rats Die Slow” reads the back of one 4Hunnid T-shirt.
The message needs no explanation rapper YG (né Keenon Daequan RayJackson) said about one of the pieces from his brand 4Hunnid’s summer capsule. The recently released collection of mostly T-shirts and a pair of basketball shorts is a nod to summer and beautiful women, he went on to say as he described the items.
“It’s really just representing our lifestyle during the summer,” he said. “When summer hits, a lot of people do a lot of things and they plan a lot of trips. I wanted to make a capsule based around pretty females.”
Most of the pieces bear phrases the music artist said represent the lifestyle of “having a good time, being real, being authentic, enjoying yourself, chasing your dream and getting your money.” The capsule debuted at an event Thursday evening that included a gallery-like installation of photos from the capsule’s look book imagery.
4Hunnid, also the name of YG’s record label under Interscope, started in early 2016. It largely won a following as artist merchandise but that changed last year with the introduction of a cut-and-sew collection that made its debut at a star-studded fashion show that drew

Umbro, Kinfolk Collaborate on Rio-Themed Capsule

Umbro has teamed with Kinfolk, a streetwear label and retailer based in Brooklyn, on an ath-leisure-based collection inspired by the classic sportswear worn by the youth of Rio de Janeiro.
Classic Kinfolk and Umbro styles are being updated with the colors and signatures of the city such as the wavy pattern on the sidewalks of the Copacabana and the red, white and black of Flamengo, one of Brazil’s largest nightclubs. The club was a big part of Umbro’s 95-year history during the Nineties and its trademark bright colors were used for the collection.
“Rio’s street energy and the diversity of the city’s youth is super exciting. Kids dress with style, using what they have and wear it or customize it to make it unique,” said Jey Perie, Kinfolk’s cofounder and creative director. “I also love the incorporation of all the football jerseys in everyday street style. The Brazilian league still has the best football jersey design.”
To capture the collection, Kinfolk also worked with Brazilian photographer Ricardo Beliel, who captured the culture and atmosphere of the Maracanã Stadium in the Seventies and Eighties.
Helene Hope, Umbro’s head of global brand marketing, said the collection “captures the true vibrancy, spirit and energy of Brazilian street fashion.”

Country Music’s Kassi Ashton Designs Budweiser Capsule

Rising country music star Kassi Ashton’s talents extend beyond having a great set of pipes and the ability to write moving songs that expose the gritty and vulnerable sides of her personality. Ashton has been designing and sewing her own clothes for as long as she can remember. When Budweiser heard that, it tapped Ashton to create a limited-edition collection that will be sold at a pop-up at CMA Fest, June 6-9 in Nashville.
“I’ve been obsessed with clothes ever since I can remember,” Ashton said. “The first time I was picky about clothes, I had these black corduroy overalls that I hated. My mom made we wear them to kindergarten and I cried in my cubby until my she brought me a change of clothes.”
Ashton in middle school learned how to sew and created her own outfits. She said she jumped at the chance to work with Budweiser on the eight-piece collection. “It’s a big company that was very influential in my youth,” she said. “It’s all my dad drinks; it’s an American staple. This is a new thing for Budweiser. They’re trying to reach out to a new audience.”

Dsquared2, Drake’s OVO Collaborate on Capsule

TEAM CANADA: Dsquared2 has teamed with October’s Very Own, the lifestyle brand founded by Canadian musician Drake with entrepreneur Oliver El-Khatib and longtime producer Noah “40” Shebib, on a men’s capsule collection.
In particular, Dsquared2 founders and creative directors Dean and Dan Caten reworked the OVO signature logo, which, instead of featuring the usual owl, shows two owls — an homage to the idea of duplicity rooted in the Canadian-Italian label, actually established and managed by the Caten twins.
The two owls, combined with the graphic Dsquared2 logo, embellish a range of urban pieces, spanning from a dark indigo jacket, medium blue jeans, a gray hoodie with coordinated fleece track pants, T-shirts, as well as a beanie and a baseball cap.

J.Lindeberg’s Davey Adesida Capsule to Launch April 27

J.Lindeberg’s limited-edition capsule collection with New York-based photographer Davey Adesida will be released worldwide on April 27 in select company stores and online.
The 29-year-old Adesida was born in Nigeria but is now based in New York, where he became familiar with the work of Jens Werner, J.Lindeberg’s creative director. He reached out, they developed a friendship, and as a result, Werner selected several of Adesida’s images of the East and West Coasts to use on the capsule collection.
“Davey reached out to me since he had seen the work we have put into J.Lindeberg the past two years,” Werner explained. “He expressed he really liked my artistic expression and I felt the same way when I was introduced to his work. I also love analogue photography as it reminds me of my grandfather who did analogue photography for almost 50 years, so when that idea came up for this collaboration, it felt natural.”
The capsule consists of one T-shirt in two colorways and one shirt, all with photo prints from Adesida’s work. All pieces are unisex, and prices range from $ 125 to $ 260.

Nike, Artist Steven Harrington Team Up for Earth Day Capsule

Nike is getting artistic for Earth Day thanks to a collaboration with artist Steven Harrington.
The sports giant teamed with the Los Angeles-based painter to create a capsule collection intended to inspire love for the planet. Harrington is best known for his colorful California-inspired psychedelic pop works that often include dog and palm tree characters, an aesthetic he transferred to three Nike footwear models.
The Nike Flyleather by Steven Harrington collection includes an Air Force 1, a Blazer and a Cortez, each of which were created using Nike Flyleather, a proprietary sustainable material that uses at least 50 percent recycled leather.
Harrington said Nike reached out to him about a year ago to see if he’d be interested in working on the project, “and when it hit my desk, I was so excited,” he said. “I’m such a fan of the brand and the topic itself.”
Although he has worked with Nike in the past, the “different scope” of this project, and its overriding message about sustainability really hit home.
Harrington admitted that translating his art to footwear required a different mind-set. “In the initial concepting and talking with the designers within Nike,” he said, “I took the notion of footwear completely out of my

Kith Partnering With Russell Athletic on Capsule

Friday is a big day for Ronnie Fieg.
Not only is the owner of the buzzy Kith store opening his first international outpost in London’s Selfridges flagship, but he’s also introducing a new upscale collection with Russell Athletic.
The 96-piece collection was created and manufactured by Fieg and draws on Russell’s 115-year heritage with a variety of colorful retro athletic styles for men and women.
The collection is much more premium than Russell’s traditional offering, retailing for $ 55 to $ 135.
“It’s a pinnacle level product and priced according,” said Greg Galbraith, senior director of marketing for Russell Athletic. “It’s more expensive than our regular product.”
Kith created a special 14-oz. cotton fleece that was custom-milled in the U.S. to achieve a high-quality feel for the collection. Four of Russell’s original silhouettes were used as the base for the offering, which consists of a hoodie, crewneck, T-shirt and short in red, orange, yellow, green, blue and black. Each piece is overdyed in OG (Original Gangster), pastel or vintage shades and each style is limited to only 100 units.

Haspel to Celebrate 110th Anniversary With Vintage Capsule

It was 110 years ago when Joseph Haspel Sr. created a suit out of an unusual puckered Indian fabric called seersucker that could hold up to the New Orleans heat and still look good.
Fast forward to today, and Laurie Haspel Aronson, the great granddaughter of Haspel and chief executive officer of the family-owned business, is celebrating that milestone with a special vintage capsule collection, a retail partnership and a number of parties and pop-ups that kick off for spring and will continue throughout the year.
“We’re bringing the roots back to New Orleans,” said Aronson, who is headquartered in nearby Baton Rouge, La. “It’s in our DNA and part of our brand strategy.”
To that point, Haspel has partnered with Rubensteins, the venerable men’s store in New Orleans, to sell the entire spring collection in its Canal Street store. In 2017, Haspel moved from a wholesale model to direct-to-consumer. Rubensteins is its only retail account.
This past weekend, the two companies teamed for a two-day trunk show to celebrate the start of the festival season in New Orleans with an event benefiting the Jewish Children’s Regional Service. In addition, Haspel will be a sponsor of the French Quarter Festival, a Louisiana-skewed music event,

Hickey Freeman Creates Capsule for 120th Anniversary

NEW YORK — This year marks the 120th anniversary of Hickey Freeman and the brand is creating a special capsule collection for fall to commemorate the milestone.
The brand, which is owned by Authentic Brands Group and licensed to Grano Retail Investments, will celebrate the anniversary in September.
Hickey was founded by two young entrepreneurs, Jacob Freeman and Jeremiah Hickey, in Rochester, N.Y., who manufactured suits for men and boys. Over the years, the brand has survived many ownership changes but its reputation as a purveyor of high-quality, American-made men’s wear continues to this day.
Most recently, Hickey has seen its chief creative director shift from Arnold Silverstone to Aliya Moorehead, who has been elevated to vice president of design and merchandising. Moorehead, a Greensboro, N.C.-native who had worked hand-in-hand with Silverstone for the past five years, has a rich men’s wear background that also includes six years with Joseph Abboud.
Silverstone has transitioned to work more closely with Grano’s other tailored clothing brand, Samuelsohn.
In a presentation at Hickey’s Madison Avenue showroom, Moorehead said that in preparing for the 120th anniversary, she started to research men’s wear from the Twenties. “We did a little vintage shopping,” she said, adding that the Twenties “were a great era

Vogue Italia and Yoox Celebrate Upcycling Capsule

MILAN — For the second edition of The Next Green Talents award, Vogue Italia and Yoox invited seven young designers to create a unique silhouette using the sustainable technique of upcycling.
Guests flocked to the Palazzo Morando on Wednesday night to discover the selection of international designers handpicked by Sara Sozzani Maino, head of Vogue Talents. Each designer unveiled both a limited-edition silhouette, created using items from the Yoox archive and sold on the Yoox web site, and their latest collection, a selection of which will hit the online store in September.
British designer Bethany Williams had just flown in from London, where she received the Queen Elizabeth II award for her “Adelaide House” collection, which she presented during men’s fashion week in London. (The previous recipient of the award is Richard Quinn, who was graced with the presence of the Queen herself on the day of the ceremony.)
Alongside her fall 2019 collection, created in collaboration with a Liverpool-based shelter for women, Williams unveiled an upcycled denim look crafted with old Yoox prototypes. The denim was unstitched to create a completely new silhouette and screen-printed with illustrations by Giorgia Chiarion.
“Upcycling is a passion of mine,” the designer said. “I love taking something

Talbots and O, The Oprah Magazine Join Forces for Capsule Collection to Benefit Dress for Success Benefit

For its fourth cobranded collaboration with O, The Oprah Magazine to benefit Dress for Success, Talbots is anchored in the kicked-back “T by Talbots” line.
This year’s cobranded, limited-run collection leans on comfort to remind shoppers about the importance of self-care and to help them keep up appearances while on the go. O and Talbots recruited four active personalities to help spread the word — ABC’s “American Housewife” star Katy Mixon, former Olympian and fitness guru Angela Manuel-Davis, cohost of the Food Network’s “The Kitchen” Katie Lee and actor and musician Amber Riley.
During last month’s three-day “Girls’ Getaway” Holland America-O cruise, the 2,700 guests (of which 60 were men) had first dibs on the five-piece special collection and 30-plus styles from Talbots’ spring line in the O Shop. And Talbots hosted a “Love That!” fashion show where O’s creative director Adam Glassman shared his fashion advice with hundreds of women, styling the capsule collection with Talbots’ spring items. The magazine’s editor at large Gayle King was also on deck for the maiden voyage of Holland America’s “Nieuw Statendam,” as well as 25 “Mag Insiders.” When all was said and done, many cruise-goers headed to shore with three or four Talbots purchases,

Haney Launches Red-Carpet Capsule Collection With Intermix

Stylist-turned-designer Mary Alice Haney celebrated her new red-carpet capsule collection with Intermix in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, using her new Brentwood home as party venue and backdrop for shots of plenty of influencers wearing her clothes, Rocky Barnes, Jordana Brewster, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Marlien Rentmeester among them.
“The girl that is at Intermix is a Haney girl. She’s fashion-forward, she wants to party and loves a good party dress,” said the designer, who grew up in Chattanooga, Tenn., and got her start at magazines, then as a Hollywood stylist for A-listers such as Reese Witherspoon, Blake Lively and Sarah Jessica Parker.
“Tonight, we wanted to celebrate the L.A. influencers who are setting the pace for the fashion community,” added Haney, whose sparkling home, designed with Tim Clarke, has its own bar, which was serving up tequila and Champagne cocktails. (“My husband told me not to open the good stuff, but I didn’t pay attention,” joked Haney.)
“It was built in the Eighties and we’ve been renovating it for two years,” she said of the indoor-outdoor space, which has an interior garden, and houses her studio, complete with the Beverly Hills Hotel’s banana-leaf wallpaper.

“This is the first time we’ve really been able to sit back and enjoy what we’ve done,” says Rhode Resort cofounder Phoebe Vickers, celebrating her label’s new six-piece capsule collection for Shopbop at a flower-festooned dinner at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont Thursday night.
Jamie Chung, Skyler Samuels and Shopbop fashion director Caroline Maguire joined guests in wearing the collection’s vacation-ready, exclusive cactus and hibiscus flower-print dresses (some sold with fun, matching belt bags), while sipping prosecco in Bungalow One, before sitting down to dinner beneath a rainbow grove of blooms created by L.A.-based florist Art Fleur.
“We love to nurture young designers,” said Shopbop’s Maguire. “Rhode Resort especially resonates with who our brand is; it’s bright, cheery and colorful — our customer loves it.”

Christian Wijnants Adds Men’s Knitwear Capsule

KNIT WIT: With the men’s market continuing to gain momentum, Christian Wijnants is the latest designer to expand into the segment, with a capsule of luxury sweaters set to launch in June.
The collection will be presented to press and buyers in Paris alongside the women’s pre-collection at the Galerie d’Architecture on Jan. 19. Wijnants said the plan for now is to remain focused on the knitwear category.
Inspired by Uzbekistan, the Great Silk Road and its textile traders, the line includes a fine round-knit sweater and a turtleneck, both made from fine merino wool, and a round-neck style in baby alpaca. The color palette includes shades of orange as well as some inspired by American painter Alice Neel.
The Antwerp-based designer, who founded his label in 2003, said the success of a small men’s wear capsule he designed a few years ago for a few fans and clients inspired him to launch the collection, which also includes jacquard sweaters, intarsia sweaters and 3-D knits.

EXCLUSIVE: Kent & Curwen Teams With ‘Peaky Blinders’ on Capsule

SNEAK PEAKY: Kent & Curwen is hitting the gritty streets of Twenties Birmingham, England, collaborating with the makers of “Peaky Blinders,” the hit BBC TV crime drama, on a capsule collection.
The capsule will make its debut on Sunday during the Kent & Curwen presentation at the grand Two Temple Place, overlooking the Thames, WWD has learned.
David Beckham, an investor in Kent & Curwen and the face of its campaigns, his eldest son Brooklyn and “Peaky Blinders” creator Steven Knight are expected to be at the Kent & Curwen show.

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott Teams Up With Dsquared2 on Capsule

POWER COLLABORATION: Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott are making their debut as fashion designers in collaboration with Dsquared2 founders and creative directors Dean and Dan Caten.
The fashion photographers and the Canadian twin brothers teamed up on a fashion capsule collection, hitting selected stores and the Dsquared2 online shop in February.
As suggested by its name, the Mert and Marcus 1994 x Dsquared2 capsule captures the most iconic spirit of the Nineties, as seen through the filters of the creative crew. Including a range of eye-catching pieces for men and women, the collection is focused on a combination of bold volumes and bright hues and is infused with a hip, underground vibe inspired by the Nineties’ Berlin metropolitan scene where music, art and fashion collided creating a hip, forward-thinking environment.

Faherty Creates Capsule to Support LGBTQ Community

Faherty is in the giving spirit this holiday season.
The New York-based casualwear brand has created a new women’s collection, the Rainbow capsule, and will donate 10 percent of sales to The Trevor Project, a suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ youth.
The collection, which will be available starting Monday, consists of a sweater poncho for $ 269, a pom beanie for $ 78 and a cotton-acrylic scarf for $ 118.
To promote the initiative, Faherty will team with Brooklyn-based fashion blogger Allison Graham of “She Does Him,” who will produce and share a campaign featuring the Rainbow capsule with more than 27,000 of her followers.

“When we designed the Rainbow Sweater Poncho and matching beanie and scarf for our holiday collection, its bright colors and cozy softness evoked in us the warm and fuzzy feeling of the holidays,” said Faherty president Kerry Faherty. “But we also know the holidays can bring up feelings of sadness and loneliness for many. We reached out to The Trevor Project to set up a partnership and donate a portion of our Rainbow Collection sales to the organization. We’re deeply inspired by and grateful for the organization’s incredible efforts in the LGBTQ community and we’re honored to support them during

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

Shaniqwa Jarvis Teams With X-Girl to Drop Capsule Collection at Social Studies NY

STREET-SMART FASHION: The streetwear brand X-Girl has lined up portrait photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis for its latest collaboration.
Compact to the degree that only three items are offered, the styles are available through Sunday at Social Studies NY, a multipurpose space and pop-up. To help spread the word about the collaboration, photographer Chandler Kennedy shot the painter and model Monica Hernandez wearing the assortment. A “Mini Me” crewneck sweatshirt retails for $ 95, the $ 50 “Too Many Rich People in NY” T-shirt and the $ 50 “Less, Less, Less” tote bag, which was hand-dyed by Jarvis, are up-for-grabs.
Jarvis, who has shot for Gap, Supreme, Riposte and others, dove into the capsule collection sector last year for the launch of her Baque Creative Press-published book. Started by musician Kim Gordon and stylist Daisy von Furth in 1994, the X-Girl brand has renewed its focus on New York, and is on the lookout for new talent and creatives that align with the brand. The company has more than 100 stores in Japan and has loyalists like Chloë Sevigny and Sofia Coppola. Early on, the Lafayette Street-rooted label rallied young feminists and that ethos remains.

Alice + Olivia Unveils Capsule Featuring Artwork of Keith Haring

Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet is unveiling a capsule collection featuring the artwork of Keith Haring.
Past Alice + Olivia collaborations include Domingo Zapata, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Donald Robertson. The collection will be available today.
When Bendet was designing the resort 2019 collection, colors such as canary, cherry and cobalt were featured heavily, reminding her of Haring’s work, the company said. His signature, vibrant, fun palette of primary colors embodied Bendet’s creative spirit, which inspired the capsule collection of ready-to-wear and accessories featuring Haring’s trademark dancing figures and prints in patchwork collages.
“I have always been a fan of Keith Haring’s work — the colors and graphics,” Bendet said. “He was also one of the first artists to advance social causes, and I think at this time in our world, it’s especially important to support artists who have made a difference.”
Haring, whose work responded to urban street culture of the Eighties, died in 1990 at the age of 31. He was inspired by the graffiti artists whose marks covered the city’s subway cars.
The Keith Haring x Alice + Olivia capsule collection includes a dancing figures print on a leather jacket, reversible bomber, cardigan, T-shirts, ballgown skirts, a clutch and booties, and a

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.

Pronovias Introduces Eveningwear Capsule Collection

Bridal specialist Pronovias wants to dress women beyond their wedding day.
To complement the range of bridal and occasion dresses, the Spanish-based company unveiled a capsule collection of eveningwear, named “Evening Essentials” at its flagship in central Milan on Wednesday.
The collection comprises 15 styles between floor-length gowns and cocktail dresses, each available in four different shades — dusty turquoise, pale pink, black and red. Crafted from crepe, chiffon and tulle, the designs avoided decorations and embellishments, which are a brand’s staple, to offer leaner silhouettes in an attempt to engage a younger, more international customer base.
Catering to different body types, the design team created A-line skirts and mermaid gowns featuring halter neck, heart-shaped and off-the-shoulder necklines. Shorter hourglass styles were punctuated by tiny beads which emphasized the shape of the body and simple pencil cocktail dresses were given a twist via boat necks and cutouts on the back.

Kaia Gerber and Karl Lagerfeld Co-Host Paris Launch Party for Capsule

IT TAKES TWO: Karl Lagerfeld arrived fashionably late to his own party on the last day of Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday night for the final stop-off of a series of events celebrating the launch of his collaboration with Kaia Gerber. A party was held at the Revolve Social Club in Los Angeles on Aug. 30, with Gerber making an in-store appearance at the Karl Lagerfeld flagship at 420 West Broadway in New York on Sept. 12.
For the Paris leg, the house took over a hôtel particulier on rue Saint-Guillaume in the city’s 7th arrondissement. The site, like the collection, mixed a California vibe — think palm trees and trompe l’oeil windows looking onto Malibu beach at sunset – with nods to Lagerfeld’s world, including floor-to-ceiling projections of the designer’s private library on the walls of one of the rooms. Lagerfeld and Gerber-shaped balloons filled the corridors.
Lagerfeld’s nearest and dearest turned out for the event, including pet models Brad Kroenig and Baptiste Giabiconi; the designer’s grandson, Hudson Kroenig, and his longtime studio heads at Chanel and his namesake brand, Virginie Viard and Anita Briey.

KICKING AROUND COLORS: Manish Arora has teamed up with French soccer team Paris Saint-Germain for a capsule collection that will be shown at the designer’s Thursday runway show.
Arora said he was inspired by France’s “iconic” FIFA World Cup victory this year, and splashed colorful portraits of soccer stars Kylian Mbappé and Neymar onto the clothing.
“For me, creativity has no boundaries, and I really challenged myself to explore a new field,” the designer said.
The collaboration comes as the club’s owners, Qatari Sports Investments, seek to bolster the Paris Saint-Germain’s international appeal, recently opening offices in Doha and Singapore.
The ready-to-wear collection will be sold in February 2019 in China and India.

Shayne Oliver Presents Capsule Collection with Colmar

On the eve of Milan Fashion Week, performance apparel company Colmar unveiled its collaboration with American designer Shayne Oliver with a party filled with fake snow, held Tuesday night at the Arco Della Pace venue here.
The collaboration between Oliver and Colmar falls under the sportswear company’s A.G.E. project, which stands for Advanced Garment Exploration. The company plans to conscript designers and other creative types to give its heritage with a contemporary take.
Oliver’s capsule collection comprises three different drops. While the first delivery — priced at between 500 euros and 2,200 euros — is already available at six locations worldwide including Browns in London, I.T. in Hong Kong, New York’s Totokaelo, Gr8 in Tokyo, Milan’s Excelsior and online at Ssense, the second drop is slated to hit retail in December.

And so he did, giving Colmar’s signature outerwear pieces exaggerated proportions, at times layering them or transforming them into capes and trimmed with

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’

Glenn Martens Celebrates Diesel With Red Tag Capsule

MILAN — Renzo Rosso is banking on hot young designer Glenn Martens to conceive an equally sizzling capsule collection for the Diesel Red Tag label.
“Glenn comes from Belgian training, so he has this practical-yet-surreal, Margiela-like sense,” said Rosso, whose group OTB also controls Maison Margiela, Marni, Paula Cademartori, Viktor & Rolf, Staff International and Brave Kid, in addition to Diesel. “But then he’s young and modern, and knows how to appeal to a global, educated consumer, while simultaneously being able to experiment with denim.”
Rosso may be an innovative and unconventional entrepreneur, who breaks with tradition, but he also comes prepared. “He’s been following me for three years, I’ve been told, and watching what I have been doing,” Martens said during an interview ahead of the presentation in Milan, scheduled on June 16. The Belgian designer, who is creative director of the Paris-based Y/Project label, which scooped up the 2017 ANDAM Grand Prize, made fashion fame with his deconstructed denim that can be ruched or folded back to create a wider effect.
“This is a new and fun way to celebrate Diesel, this amazing brand and its 40th anniversary,” Martens said of the Red Tag concept of capsules in collaboration with a series of edgy designers. The

CRYSTAL VISIONS: Crystal slippers are no longer limited to fairy tales. Celebrating 25 years of heels, Diego Dolcini has collaborated with Baccarat on a limited edition capsule of 15 footwear designs sporting crystal heels — a “first in the history of shoemaking,” according to the footwear designer.
Dubbed Cristal Couture, the capsule is also declined in signature Baccarat colors: ruby, amber, amethyst and black.
Dolcini named a ruby satin sandal with a torsade-shaped crystal heel echoing Baccarat’s Zenith chandelier after French singer Lou Doillon, dedicating the collection to “iconic French women of today and of the future.” (Think Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve and Mélanie Laurent, “to name but a few.”)
Hailing a “new chapter” for Baccarat, Daniela Riccardi, chief executive officer of the crystal house, in a statement said the team has been mulling “the idea of bringing Baccarat into the world of couture, catwalks and fashion shows” for some time.
The house will present a retrospective of Dolcini’s footwear oeuvre in the Salle de Bal at the Baccarat HQ on Place des États-Unis during Paris Couture Week, with a cocktail scheduled for July 1.

The Ken Scott Brand Makes a Comeback With Resort Capsule

MILAN — Ken Scott’s joyful and creative aesthetic is making a comeback.
The Ken Scott Foundation established in 1989 by the Indiana-born designer, who died in 1991 and became popular in the Sixties and Seventies with his colorful prints, has teamed with Milan-based Daniele Ghiselli Showroom to unveil a women’s resort 2019 capsule collection.
In particular, a design team of young fashion talents went through the designer’s archives in Milan to find the prints, which they used to pepper a range of contemporary designs infused with urban, street influences.
“The Ken Scott Foundation’s archives, which are completely catalogued and digitized, count 6,000 different prints and about one-third of them are unseen,” said Ghiselli, founder and chief executive officer of the namesake showroom. “He is identified and recognized for his floral patterns, but he actually developed so many themes, including sports, boats, bicycles, cars and food, just to cite a few. His prints look so modern and I think this is just the perfect moment, considering the current trends, to bring them back.”

THE RIO LIFE: Frescobol Carioca, the luxury swimwear brand inspired by the vibrance of Rio de Janeiro, is launching a summer 2018 capsule collection with help from the Brazilian illustrator and journalist Paulo Mariotti.
“It was a perfect match,” Mariotti said during the launch of the collection in London on Wednesday. “I presented a series of drawings I did over the years, about Rio and Brazil, drawings I did for myself. Eventually, the designer at Frescobol Carioca approached me, showed me the Carioca Post, and said that we needed to do something together.”
Launching later this month, the capsule collection will feature two styles each of the Frescobol Carioca tailored and sports swim shorts, each printed with either scenes of beach life or sky-scraping architecture. Two printed T-shirts that feature illustrations of the Ipanema and Arpoador beaches also form part of this capsule.

The use of tonal blues and whites link to Rio’s mosaic works, a major point of inspiration that the brand and the illustrator shared while working on the collection, and as a result the prints reflect

Hennessy Taps Jean-Raymond for First Apparel Capsule

NEW YORK — Kerby Jean-Raymond bristles when it’s suggested that he’s a streetwear designer.
But there’s no denying the founder of Pyer Moss is popular with the trendsetting Millennials who define the movement. His first sneaker for Reebok, which dropped earlier this month, sold out within minutes and is being offered on resale sites for more than $ 500.
Now Jean-Raymond has designed a capsule collection for cognac brand Hennessy’s Wild Rabbit “Never stop. Never settle.” project.
The designer was commissioned to create a line inspired by Marshall “Major” Taylor, an African-American track cyclist who won the sprint event at the 1899 ICA Track Cycling World Championships in Montreal and went on to compile a storied career in the sport. However, Taylor, who died in 1932 and was once esteemed as the fastest man on two wheels, is largely unknown today.
But with the help of Hennessy, ESPN and Jean-Raymond, that’s about to change.
On Thursday night, the brands will unveil the MMT 140 x Pyer Moss for Hennessy Capsule Collection, a mash-up of vintage cycling gear and streetwear staples, as part of an event that will celebrate the athlete. The program will include an ESPN-produced documentary, a voiceover performed by Nas, and a monument called

Teyana Taylor, GCDS to Debut Capsule Collection

MILAN — “I love strong, independent women who have made a name for themselves, with incredible energy,” said Giuliano Calza, founder and designer of Italian contemporary streetwear firm GCDS.
The brand is gearing up to debut a capsule collection codesigned with recording artist, dancer, fitness entrepreneur and social media phenomenon Teyana Taylor, who has 6.1 million Instagram followers.
The capsule collection, which is named “Harlem made,” pays homage to Taylor’s origins. “It’s streetwear, where the hood and high fashion meet. That’s always been me. It’s Harlem made, I am Harlem. So it represents me as well as the culture,” she explained. The lineup includes T-shirts, hoodies, bodysuits and accessories, which are priced from 20 euros for a pair of socks to 160 euros for a sweatshirt.
“Last summer, I was in Los Angeles and I came across this late Eighties T-shirt with [a picture of] Cher holding a rainbow flag in her hand, and it was one of her tour merchandise items,” explained Calza, who drew his inspiration from vintage items from that period. “Modern icons don’t communicate this strong way anymore,” he continued, highlighting that instead of chasing cool, the collection is aimed at celebrating Taylor’s uniqueness and diversity.

EXCLUSIVE: Off-White Releases Capsule Collection With Sunglass Hut

Off-White’s Virgil Abloh is jumping back into the sunglasses market, and this time in a big way: Abloh is collaborating with Sunglass Hut to launch a capsule collection.
The designer already has numerous collaborations under his belt, including Off-White c/o Jimmy Choo for spring; Nike c/o Virgil Abloh the Ten, and Off-White c/o Warby Parker in July 2017, which was his first foray into the eyewear market. But the partnership with Sunglass Hut is a first for his brand in terms of size and scope.
“Sunglass Hut and Luxottica offer Off-White exposure to a wide audience that might not know about the brand,” Abloh said when asked about the reason to partner with the eyewear company. Sunglass Hut offers Abloh a reach on a global scale, including Asia, Mexico, Australia, the U.K. and the U.S.
“I’ve always thought of sunglasses as an important accessory in a fashion context. It’s a small object that can give you the nuances of a brand’s opinion on design,” Abloh said. “For me, I was looking to incorporate classic shapes from the past with a youthful modern elegance. All lenses are flat, which gives each style the same edge.”

Vanessa Schindler On Slow Fashion and Her Petit Bateau Capsule

MATERIAL GIRL: “It’s really, really slow fashion,” said Vanessa Schindler who will present a capsule of evening-based looks hand-crafted in her studio in Geneva at the upcoming edition of the Hyères International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Fashion Accessories, as last year’s winner of the Grand Prize and Public and City of Hyères awards for the fashion section.
Schindler impressed a jury headed by Schiaparelli’s Bertrand Guyon with her otherworldly collection — “Urethane Pool, Chapitre 2” — based on cinematic silhouettes combining synthetic, interiors-inspired materials with urethane, a chemical resin that joins fabrics together when it dries.
This time around, she’s pushed the concept further, experimenting with new ways to build garments using the translucent, rubbery material. “The pieces are pretty much drawn with urethane,” said the designer, describing a voluminous pink wavy dress made by stretching a fabric and covering it with urethane to fix it. It also features embroidery by Maison Lesage.
The designer has also collaborated with knitwear specialist Cécile Feilchenfeldt on three pieces “drawn” with the material. “We basically filled urethane shapes with knits,” said Schindler.
The designer, who is “fascinated by the Fifties and Sixties, and interior design,” plans to work to her own schedule and focus on small editions. Urethane

At the time, heavier-weight, more rigid T-shirts were all the rage, while Splendid offered something different: lighter, more supple fabric T-shirts. Missoni was hooked.
“The quality appealed to me at the time. It was a softness and this is one of the biggest qualities of Splendid,” she said. “I bought quite a few and I’ve worn quite a few during those years. I had them in every color.”
A trio of themes form the basis of the Margherita x Splendid collection: daisy and denim; red, white and the ocean; and stripes and solids across T-shirts, caftans, skirts, dresses sweatshirt-and-short sets, swimwear, bodysuits and jeans.

Michael Kors Collaborates With Artist David Downton for Special Capsule

THE ART OF THE SKETCH: Michael Kors has teamed with renowned fashion artist David Downton on a special capsule collection. The designs will be shown at the Michael Kors runway show at the Beaumont Theater at Lincoln Center Wednesday at 10 a.m. The capsule will hit stores this fall.
While additional details weren’t divulged, it is believed that the illustrations will appear on handbags.
In 1966, Downton was commissioned to draw at the Paris couture by a Sunday supplement and since then his illustrated reports from the shows have appeared in such publications as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar and The New York Times. His commercial client list includes Chanel, Dior, Tiffany & Co., Topshop, Joyce Hong Kong, Harrods, Estée Lauder and the V&A Museum. He has also produced portraits of some celebrities including Cate Blanchett, Dita Von Teese, Catherine Deneuve and Linda Evangelista.
“This is our first collaboration with an artist for Michael Kors Collection, and it is very personal. David captures people’s essence and style without feeling the need to draw every detail about them — it’s the magic of a great illustrator,” Kors said.

EXCLUSIVE: Kaia Gerber Designs Capsule Collection With Karl Lagerfeld

PARIS — Move over, Gigi — there’s a new “It” girl in town.
Only three months after her stellar debut catwalk season, Kaia Gerber has inked her first big design collaboration, with Karl Lagerfeld, no less. The 16-year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford has worked on a capsule collection that will hit stores in September, WWD has learned exclusively.
Consisting of ready-to-wear and accessories, including footwear, sunglasses and jewelry, the line is described as blending Lagerfeld’s Parisian chic aesthetic and Gerber’s signature West Coast casual style, which has garnered her 2.7 million followers on Instagram.
The Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia collection will launch globally in Karl Lagerfeld stores, online at Karl.com and with select wholesale partners.
Lagerfeld singled out Gerber as a rising talent months before her breakout season in September, which saw her walk the catwalk for 18 brands, including Calvin Klein, Prada, Saint Laurent and Versace.
She ended it with an honor most seasoned models would die for: Opening the Chanel show for Lagerfeld, who in addition to heading his own label is creative director of Chanel and Italian fur specialist Fendi.
“When Karl first told us his idea to collaborate with Kaia, we were all excited by the incredible potential and power of bringing their

Shepard Fairey’s Obey Label Joins Forces With Wildfang to Create the Rise + Riot Capsule Collection

RISING TIDES: Not about to be left behind during this time of great resistance, Obey, an art-infused socially conscious brand, has joined forces with the feminist label Wildfang to create a capsule collection.
The Rise + Riot collection is geared for those who want to fight the system and band together against oppression. In one of the more unexpected descriptions of a collaboration, the line was made as a sign of togetherness and getting angry. Apparently such ire can be found in three graphic T-shirts – cropped, long-sleeved and oversized; a hooded coat; trousers, and a “Dad” hat. Designed to speak for themselves, the garments are imprinted with such self-explanatory hand gestures as shaka, the peace sign, a middle finger, a heart shape and fist. The line launches on Wildfang’s site today and Obey’s on Jan. 15. Obey’s Instagram-driven sales account for 10 percent of the brand’s business.
This marks the first time Obey has collaborated with a women’s brand and executives sought out one with an authentic voice. The timing of the launch was scheduled to coincide with the first anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration and the Women’s March. Wild Fang’s creative director Taralyn Thuot said, “We wanted to represent the

#Heineken100 Capsule With BAPE Balances Accessibility With Exclusivity

The #Heineken100 project, an annual campaign that aligns the beer company with fashion brands such as Public School and Union Los Angeles, is taking a different approach this year.
The label has partnered with streetwear brand A Bathing Ape (known as BAPE) to produce a small capsule collection, but for the first time the product will be made available to the public. Coltrane Curtis, founder and managing partner of Team Epiphany, which produces the campaign, said this shift is an attempt to open the initiative up to more people while maintaining some mystique.
“The challenge for this year’s #Heineken100 partnership is maintaining exclusivity and staying connected to the culture, while at the same time increasing the program visibility,” said Curtis. “Today’s luxury brands like Fear of God and Off-White are doing a great job at finding a balance between mass and exclusivity, and we believe this year’s program does that as well.”
The co-branded collection, which retails from $ 112 to $ 413, includes a half-zip pullover shark hoodie, a camo coach jacket, a T-shirt and a six-pack bottle carrier. Instead of being sold at A Bathing Ape locations, it will be made available today to customers over 21 at a pop-up shop at Izakaya

Dior Homme Taps Patrick Demarchelier for Capsule Ad Campaign

Patrick Demarchelier is behind the new, moody campaign for Kris Van Assche’s slinky Black Carpet spring 2018 collection for Dior Homme.
The photographer, who’s a frequent Dior collaborator, took cues from the strictly black and white color palette for the collection in his shots of stern, but fine-featured young men in a capsule collection of sharp evening looks.
The noir-heavy photos more than show off the louche tailoring of the collection — black layers of a mock turtleneck, dress shirt, tie and jacket are barely decipherable and most of the photos are half-shrouded in shadow — but Van Assche’s wish to reinterpret formalwear is apparent. He’s dubbed the collection “Black Carpet.”
“The idea of the Black Carpet was to convey the energy and rebel attitude of the runway collection in a capsule collection of eveningwear, while playing with the embellishment codes and the know-how of Dior, reworking the evening suit by pushing it in a more extreme interpretation,” Van Assche said.

Dior Homme spring 2018 capsule campaign by Patrick Demarchelier. 

The campaign is a departure from Dior’s spring 2017 men’s ads featuring the likes of Boy George and A$ AP Rocky, which showed more personalized styling and pops of color, as did the brand’s fall

Woolmark and Facetasm Team for Capsule Collections

A WOOL PAIR: Facetasm and the Woolmark Company are teaming for two capsule collections, kicking off a relationship between the Japanese brand and textile company intended to last beyond the collaboration and foster ties between the Australian wool industry and Japan’s fashion sector.
Facetasm designer and founder Hiromichi Ochiai, who visited Australia to learn about merino wool production, will become the first “global wool ambassador from Japan,” said Woolmark managing director Stuart McCullough in a statement. McCullough noted that the country represents an important market in terms of creativity and quality, and that the partnership was meant to expand merino wool “beyond traditional tailoring.”
“I believe merino wool is an essential ingredient for the brand to move onto the next step in its creation,” said Ochiai, who spent time with sheep farmers on his visit. The first capsule collection will be shown in January in Paris.

Nick Wooster Collaborates With Five Four on Capsule Collection

Five Four can now add Nick Wooster to its growing list of collaborators.
The men’s retail company has worked with Chris Paul, Robert Geller, Mark McNairy and Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi, and now has teamed with Wooster to create a capsule collection that’s available exclusively on Five Four’s e-commerce site and subscription service.
The collection was inspired by time Wooster spent in Los Angeles. He’s designed reversible jackets with reflective fabric, leopard print sweaters, plaid bomber jackets and frayed jeans.
“We’ve taken really key, basic items that I think are essential to every man’s wardrobe, like striped oxford cloth shirts for instance, and given them a slight twist,” Wooster said. “The hope is that when a guy puts this on, he stops and thinks, ‘Hey, someone really thought about this for me.’”
Andres Izquieta, co-chief executive officer and creative director of Five Four, said he’s been following Wooster for years and thought the Five Four customer would appreciate his aesthetic.
“To say we’re excited to have him develop an entire collection for our Club subscription guys in addition to an e-commerce collaboration would be an understatement,” Izquieta said. “He has a very clear vision for how to create a truly diverse wardrobe that’s based off of very

Kipling and Disney Collaborate on Accessories Capsule

Disney has teamed with Kipling on a line of accessories, beginning with holiday.
It is the latest effort by the Nineties brand — best known for its fanny-pack and cross-body styles, each accompanied by an ape charm – to increase its popularity and reach a new generation of consumers. In July, Kipling collaborated with Urban Outfitters Inc. on a limited-edition line of accessories.
In its first collaboration with Disney, Kipling has taken inspiration from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Poison apple and magic mirror motifs are scattered throughout the multistyle collection, to be priced from $ 29 to $ 149 at retail. Shapes include backpacks, handbags and small travel accessories.
“It’s really about the synergy between the two brands — Kipling is fun and energetic and youthful and shares Disney’s sense of imagination,” said president of Kipling North America Nina Flood.
Kipling’s tie-up with Disney is to continue through 2019. With each new collection, Kipling will dote on style signatures of a different Disney princess.

Dsquared2 to Launch Capsule Collection Against Online Bullying

MILAN — Dsquared2 founders and creative directors Dean and Dan Caten will launch a capsule collection in partnership with the cyber antibullying movement “Be Cool Be Nice.” A portion of the profits from the sale of the graphic lineup of apparel and accessories will go toward the foundation, which aims to stop online bullying of young adults and children.
“Online bullying is a powerful and scary issue that can have a lasting, negative impact on young people’s lives,” said Dean Caten. “We were bullied as kids and we understand how destructive it is,” added Dan Caten. The designers revealed they immediately joined the cause as “it’s important to give kids and teenagers who are forming their personalities space to discover themselves without judgment, criticism and hate.”
The capsule collection — which includes denim, sweatshirts, T-shirts, baseball caps, high-heeled sandals for women and sneakers for men — was conceived to channel “an attitude of strength, confidence and positivity.” Every item features the name of the foundation and the logo of the brand, contrasting the garment’s classic color palette of black, gray and white.

AllSaints’ Wil Beedle on New Men’s Capsule

AllSaints creative director Wil Beedle was on a return trip back from shooting Maya Thurman-Hawke in Woodstock, N.Y. last spring when it hit him: nothing really happens in the men’s market.
“I’ve been playing with the ideas of the city and the countryside and how they’re connected as a women’s wear collection and I was thinking about how for women’s wear we always played between these two codes: the city and the countryside and it changed. The evolution of it shifted,” he said. “But for guys there was this kind of wonderfully comforting and frustrating permanence of our ways of dressing.”
AllSaints’ capsule collection for men, which it’s calling Nothing Really Happens, takes a playful jab at Beedle’s observation.
“As a guy, the way that I dress and my own wardrobe has evolved but it’s always kind of remained fundamentally unchanged all my life,” Beedle said. “I wanted to celebrate that sense of permanence but also be provocative as well because, of course, things change and evolve.”
Beedle had the campaign imagery and accompanying film shot in the depths of suburbia, trekking to Santa Clarita, Calif. in the valley to pull teens, twentysomethings and men in their 50s who live and work there to

The app, which has made some inroads within streetwear as a tool to help brands and retailers with product drops, will help make certain pieces from designers available for sale through its app as part of special presentations happening at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in conjunction with the Capsule and Liberty Fairs trade shows.
“There’s never been an official partnership between the trade fairs and the CFDA so fashion week now extends to market week,” said Capsule director Christopher Corrado.
Layering in the capabilities of Frenzy adds to that partnership, Corrado continued.
“It really does lay the path for the future of the way that we hope to engage consumers in our trade event.…There’s been obviously a lot of conversation around the seasonality of the fashion industry and how we capitalize on all the excitement that happens around a runway presentation and how we actually engage the end consumer and that’s exactly what Frenzy does from an event producer opinion.”

Kenny, known for creating collage-inspired banners and flags, reinterpreted some of the house’s best-known scarf designs and patterns to create original artworks used on two dozen products including T-shirts, mugs, cushions and phone covers.
Nicolas Topiol, chief executive officer of Christian Lacroix, said the celebration was designed to underline the activities of the house, which has focused on men’s wear, accessories and homewares since it went into administration in 2009.
“We feel at this point, with the recent history of the house, that we wanted to celebrate the past 30 years, but more importantly, the next 30 years,” Topiol said. “We really wanted to share the anniversary with the largest number of people possible.”
Available in limited quantities, the line will go on sale in early August at the Ron Robertson store in Santa Monica, Calif. Prices range from 12 euros for a small patch to 240 euros for a scarf.
“The U.S. has always been very important for the house of Lacroix. Obviously it’s a very French house and the roots are in couture, but at the same the U.S. press has supported Lacroix

Axel Arigato Unveils Second Clothing Capsule

BLOOMING BUNCH: Following its initial launch last March, Axel Arigato has created its second clothing capsule for men.
“Working with a capsule collection allows me to experiment and try out different concepts on a smaller scale,” said creative director Max Svärdh. “I’ve been really into florals this season and wanted to let the concept express itself in three different garments.”
Titled “Saku,” the collection takes its cue from the Japanese word for bloom. The six-piece range consists of sweatshirts, hoodies and T-shirts in a red, black and white palette. The lineup includes logos accented with floral embellishments. The price range is from 55 pounds or $ 70 for a T-shirt to 125 pounds or $ 159 for a hoodie. The capsule is available for purchase at the brand’s web site, London flagship and Stockholm concept space.
“We recently opened up our temporary concept store titled “Axel Arigato Gallery” in Stockholm,” said chief executive officer Albin Johansson, “which we are very excited about as well as our second capsule clothing collection. For us Axel Arigato is a platform to test different ideas and concepts. With all we do, we want to create an idea of constant movement and energy. We want our customers to discover new

Katama Creates Capsule Collection With Surf Lodge

Katama is collaborating with The Surf Lodge.
Garrett Neff, a model who started his New England-inspired swimwear line in 2015, has created an exclusive capsule collection for the Montauk resort in the Hamptons. The Surf Lodge operates the popular boutique Surf Bazaar, along with a retail space in its lobby.
Although Neff said he didn’t grow up surfing, he and Jayma Cardoso, who co-owns The Surf Lodge, connected because of their love of nature and the water.
“You can feel his fondness for the ocean and beach life in his designs,” Cardoso said. “For Garrett, he has fond memories of Katama Bay and for myself it’s Brazil and now Montauk. We have a mutual admiration for the sea, which made it easy for me to see how we could do something great together.”
The collection, which retails from $ 145 to $ 350, consists of board shorts, trunks, T-shirts, tank tops, a jersey cardigan and a canvas tote bag. A small portion of the line will be available from June 7 through June 9 at Surf Lodge’s two retail spaces, the Surf Bazaar and the Surf Lodge lobby, and Katama’s e-commerce site. The full collection, along with Katama’s spring line, will be available the weekend of July 7 at

Études Launches ‘Smiling Sun’ Capsule

KEEP ON SMILING: French collective Études is taking a political stand with a new unisex capsule named after and inspired by the iconic “Smiling Sun” logo. Created in 1975 and designed by Danish activist Anne Lund, the logo became a symbol of the anti-nuclear power movement and was translated into 50 languages.
Described by Études cofounders Aurélien Arbet and Jérémie Egry as “a collection celebrating the anti-nuclear movement that embodies the new generation’s environmental consciousness,” the capsule supports the nuclear power phase-out movement and features the logo revisited as patches and prints on denim, caps, T-shirts and sweatshirts. It grew out of a sprinkling of looks that featured in the brand’s spring 2017 show.
So far Germany, Belgium, Spain and Switzerland are the only countries to have committed to a nuclear power phase-out, following in the footsteps of Italy, which closed its last reactors in 1990 following the Chernobyl accident, as the first and only country in the world to do so.
The Smiling Sun capsule will enter the brand’s Paris store on May 18 as well e-commerce site Ssense.com, with other points of sale to be confirmed.

Liberty, Capsule to Move Men’s Shows to Javits in July

Liberty Fairs and Capsule Show are on the move — at least for a little while.
The trade shows were unable to secure their usual location at Pier 94 for the spring men’s wear shows in July and will move to the Jacob Javits Convention Center where Project and MRket will also be holding their shows.
However, Liberty and Capsule said the move is temporary and they will be back at Pier 94 for the January 2018 editions of their shows.
“No matter where we travel, our vision remains the same — create enjoyable and memorable experiences for brands, retailers and editors,” said Sam Ben-Avraham, founder of Liberty Fairs. “I am excited for attendees to make long-lasting connections at The Javits and another successful season. To me, the venue itself is less important than the connections and experiences happening inside and I look forward to channeling our unique vision through a new location.”
Deirdre Maloney, cofounder of Capsule, added: “Colocating with Liberty has been great for the market. But this summer with our shows and the UBM shows all at Javits, we expect buyers will be in paradise.”
Capsule joined Liberty at Pier 94 for the first time in January of 2016, leaving its former home

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

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

Alessandro Michele Creates Capsule for Mr Porter

LONDON — Alessandro Michele is preparing for an encore at Yoox Net-a-porter Group, launching Gucci’s first capsule men’s collection with Mr Porter, WWD has learned.
The 43-piece collection, which will debut on May 18, comes a year after Gucci collaborated on a similar project with Net-a-porter.
“Our customer has truly embraced the new direction of Gucci under the creative direction of Alessandro Michele, and we wanted to reward them with something unique,” said Toby Bateman, managing director of Mr Porter.
He said the site already does a brisk business “across the Gucci range, from the iconic pieces through to the tailored clothing. Given the influence Gucci and Alessandro are having in respect of global trendsetting, it seemed to be a natural next collaboration for us.”
Bateman added that Gucci has a knack for appealing to a wide range of customers.
“There is something for each type of Mr Porter customer. The logo print hoodie and Ts appeal to the younger, more urban guy, while a classic Horsebit loafer will last and wear a lifetime for the discerning, slightly older one.”
The collection runs across ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories, and includes the house’s textures and fabrics in a color palette of zesty oranges and yellows, azure blues

Karl Lagerfeld Collaborates With Vilebrequin on Swimwear Capsule

ENDLESS SUMMER: Next time Karl Lagerfeld heads down to Saint-Tropez, he will be able to don beachwear bearing his own likeness — even if he generally favors a white suit for his Riviera jaunts.
The Karl Lagerfeld brand has collaborated with French luxury swimwear maker Vilebrequin on a limited-edition capsule collection of eight items that includes men’s and women’s swimwear, beachwear and beach accessories.
The two brands have a common shareholder: G-III Apparel Group. G-III, headed by Morris Goldfarb, owns Vilebrequin and has a 19 percent stake in the Lagerfeld label.
The new line will go on sale in May at select Karl Lagerfeld stores, Vilebrequin stores and on their respective e-commerce sites, with prices ranging from 60 euros to 210 euros, or $ 65 to $ 225 at current exchange.
Inspired by iconic Rivieras and coastlines, the pieces come in a vibrant azure shade set off with pops of graphic black and white, and feature Lagerfeld’s instantly recognizable silhouette printed in black in lieu of a logo.
For men, they include a polo shirt and two styles of swim shorts: one fitted with a flat-belt waist, and the other inspired by classic Seventies silhouettes. For women, the offer consists of a bikini, a tunic and swim

Karl Lagerfeld Taps Illustrator Steven Wilson for Capsule Collection

COLOR WHEEL: Karl Lagerfeld is getting the color printing treatment.
The designer has tapped artist and illustrator Steven Wilson to collaborate on a limited-edition capsule collection of clothing and accessories featuring designs made using layers of cyan, magenta and yellow – the hues that form the basis of the printing process.
Wilson created graphics including a portrait of Lagerfeld, his cat Choupette, the brand logo, a camera and a pair of sunglasses. They feature on items such as an embroidered satin bomber jacket, sweatshirts, jeans, a tote bag and an assortment of accessories that will go on sale in stores and online on April 1.
“The principe behind the graphics is that they are made using just three layers. Abstract cyan, magenta and yellow shapes are laid on top of one another to create a design that has identifiable form,” Wilson said in a statement. “The beauty of this process is that where the colors overlap, you get secondary colors — red, green and so on.”

Celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinati and Eddie Bauer have reunited for another limited-edition capsule collection, this one for women and launching for fall 2017 at select Eddie Bauer stores and eddiebauer.com in late September. Urbinati last paired with the Seattle-based vertical retailer in 2015 for a men’s capsule collection launched at Sundance Film Festival.
“We appreciate the way she has remained true to the brand’s ethos while modernizing some of our classic silhouettes, creating a fresh take on many of Eddie Bauer’s iconic pieces,” said Eddie Bauer chief executive officer Mike Egeck. “Ilaria’s sense of style, combined with Eddie Bauer’s rich outdoor heritage, has created something truly special that is relevant for today’s outdoor and fashion consumer.”

Galeries Lafayette to Launch Rolf Ekroth Capsule

HYERES, HYERES: Showing its support for young designers, French department store Galeries Lafayette for the third year in a row has invited a fashion finalist from the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography to create a capsule to be sold in a selection of its stores.
Following in the footsteps of Louis-Gabriel Nouchi and Sophie Harand, Finland’s Rolf Ekroth has designed a unisex capsule of rain gear that will go on sale at Galeries Lafayette Haussmann in Paris in September, as well as in a handful of regional department stores operated by the retailer and its e-shop.
Housing four apparel designs and two sneakers, the line will be unveiled at the Hyères Festival’s upcoming edition in late April, in the “Formers” area of the Villa Noailles.
Ekroth, who started out his career as a social worker then professional poker player, studied fashion at Helsinki’s Aalto University, making his way to the festival with a men’s wear collection inspired by golf.
Galeries Lafayette, a longtime sponsor of the festival, for the first time will announce its next guest designer at the event’s prize-giving ceremony on April 30.

Petit Bateau to Launch Capsule by Hyères Festival Winner Wataru Tominaga

STRIPES EARNED: Hyères festival winner Wataru Tominaga’s graphic, pop sensibility comes splashed across a capsule for Petit Bateau due to launch in time for summer.
The hook-up marks a tradition upheld by the brand since partnering with the festival in 2013 where winners of the event’s Première Vision Grand Jury Prize are invited to reinterpret iconic Petit Bateau garments and codes. The designer follows in the footsteps of previous laureates Satu Maaranen, Kenta Matsushige and Annelie Schubert.
Tominaga layered up motifs on the capsule’s sporty creations which vibrate with green, red and blue milleraies and marinière stripes interspersed with checks and blooms.
“As a designer who is more focused on personal development, it was an interesting challenge to come up with designs for Petit Bateau, which is about democratic yet high-quality clothing. It was about finding the right balance,” said Tominaga who was compared to a “young Issey Miyake” by Julien Dossena, president of the festival’s 2016 fashion jury.
The designer, who got to visit the brand’s factory in Troyes and was given access to a number of archive designs, is currently on an artists’ residency program at the Palais de Tokyo and is due to present a performance piece in a private residence in Athens

Linda Farrow Taps Four Digital Influencers for Spring Capsule

DIGITAL VISION: Linda Farrow is sidelining designers in favor of digital influencers for its spring capsule collection.
The luxury eyewear brand, which is known for its seasonal collaborations, has so far been teaming with a host of designers to create capsules. They have ranged from established names such as Matthew Williamson and Dries Van Noten to younger, eccentric labels including KTZ, Yazbukey and Bahrain-based Khaleda Rajab.
For the latest capsule, the brand has instead tapped four influencers: Australian native Nicole Warne, known for her blog Garypeppergirl.com; Leaf Greener, a Chinese stylist and publisher of her own WeChat fashion magazine; Elena Perminova, a Russian model and founder of Instagram charity “SOS by Lena Perminova,” and the Netherlands-based Negin Mirsalehi, who is a vlogger and founder of a hair-care line.
The four women, who boast a combined following of up to 7 million, have designed one pair of sunglasses each and are featured together in a new campaign promoting the collection, shot by Mariano Vivanco.
Simon Jablon, the brand’s chief executive officer, said the decision to work with the influencers was based on the idea of “global togetherness,” and on teaming people with whom the Linda Farrow customer can relate to.

Fourth of November Collaborates With New York Knicks on Capsule Collection

Kareem “Biggs” Burke continues to pull from his roots for his apparel endeavors.
The Roc-A-Fella records cofounder, who owns the denim brand Fourth of November, has teamed with the New York Knicks on a limited-edition capsule collection in celebration of the basketball team’s 70th anniversary.
“As a real New Yorker it’s an absolute honor to collaborate with the Knicks,” said Burke.
The collection includes a classic varsity jacket made of Melton wool and lambskin, and a snapback. Both feature the Fourth of November logo along with ’70 and ’73, which indicate the years the Knicks won an NBA Championship. The jacket, which retails for $ 350, and the snapback, which retails for $ 46, will be sold exclusively at the Madison Square Garden team store. Only 70 pieces of each style will be produced.
When working with Roc-A-Fella, which was acquired by Def Jam in 2004, Burke helped grow Rocawear, the label’s streetwear brand, into an almost $ 700 million business, and although he had no plans of reentering the fashion business, when a childhood friend introduced him to Fourth of November, which was founded by Carlos Rodriguez, he joined the team to help them grow the company.

Roc-A-Fella Records Cofounder Kareem ‘Biggs’ Burke to Launch 14 Capsule Collections Nationwide

Kareem “Biggs” Burke is executive producing a new type of project.
The cofounder of Roc-A-Fella records is overseeing the simultaneous drop of 14 Roc96 collections at 14 specialty stores throughout the U.S. starting in December. Each collection is inspired by a different song from “Reasonable Doubt,” Jay Z’s debut album that turned 20 this year.
“I was trying to do one drop a month and obviously there are 14 songs and there aren’t 14 months in a year, so we decided to consolidate it,” said Burke, who tasked his design team with thoroughly listening to the album before creating the collection. The line, which retails from $ 25 to $ 145, features T-shirts, hoodies, hats, beanies and reprinted “Reasonable Doubt” cassettes. The assortment has graphics and messaging that riff off of lyrics from the classic album.
The Foundation Showroom is handling the distribution of the collection, which will be available on Dec. 4, Jay Z’s 47th birthday, at the following stores: Social Status locations in Pennsylvania and North Carolina; A Ma Maniere in Atlanta; Feature in Las Vegas; Woodstack in Brooklyn; Politics in New Orleans; Creme in Norfolk, Va.; Xhibition in Cleveland; Corporate in Cincinnati; Ubiq in Philadelphia; Concepts in Manhattan and Boston; Soho Gallery in

Net-a-porter Launches Jacquemus Capsule Collection

Jacquemus is the latest in Net-a-porter’s stable of designer collaborations. Launching on Nov. 28, “Bleu Blanc” is a nine-piece collection of ready-to-wear by Paris-based designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, based on the asymmetric shirting and men’s wear-inspired styles from his main collection. The pieces include cinched shirtdresses, a dress made from two jackets sewn together, a wrap coat, a cable knit sweater, an off-the-shoulder top, pants with exaggerated cuffs and a skirt that looks like it was made from a blazer. It’s all done in white, navy and pinstripes, hence the name of the collection. Prices range from $ 115 and $ 840.
Net-a-porter has carried Jacquemus for a year and reports strong sell-throughs for the collection. “The reasoning behind the capsule was to establish ourselves as a destination for the brand,” said Lisa Aiken, Net-a-porter’s fashion director. “They haven’t done any capsules with any other retailers, so we wanted to be the first. We are also selling out of the existing collection so quickly, and wanted to give customers an opportunity to shop something special from the brand between the seasons.”

Carolina Herrera Teams With Mytheresa.com for Capsule Collection

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

London Designer Katie Eary Teams With KFC on Capsule Collection

PLAYING CHICKEN: KFC has recruited edgy London men’s wear designer Katie Eary in its mission to demonstrate how much can be done in a lunch hour.
As part of the fast food brand’s #PackMoreIntoLunch campaign, KFC challenged Eary to create a capsule women’s wear collection for spring 2016 in 60 minutes.
On the day of the challenge, 25 machinists sewed like crazy to create 13 looks, worn by 10 models in a catwalk show at the Old Truman Brewery in London.
The collection, like the playful and irreverent men’s wear Eary is known for, was brightly colored, with a palette rooted in fluorescent orange and green.
Butterflies were the print motif, superimposed over hypersized KFC chickens — it shouldn’t have worked but it did. Floaty silk chiffon minidresses and cropped tops came with a lovely ostrich feather trim in neon green.
A red bias-cut slipdress that reached just above the ankles managed to be sexy and sophisticated, while the twist-front swimsuits had definite commercial appeal.
Of course, some preparations had been made. The collection had been finalized two weeks before: All the patterns had been made, and almost everything had been pre-cut for the 60-minute sew-a-thon.
There was a rawness to some looks that probably wasn’t intentional,

Roksanda Marks 10 Years with Capsule Collection

Roksanda Turns 10: Roksanda Ilincic’s Roksanda label marks its 10th anniversary this year, and the London-based designer has dipped back into her archive to celebrate the milestone.
The designer has this week launched a 10-piece capsule collection that’s inspired by Ilincic’s back catalogue of designs — which make a feature of bold colors and strong silhouettes — over the past 10 years.
The looks include the Margot dress that Ilincic first showed in spring 2012, a shift dress with tuliplike sleeves, which she’s redone in tomato red and a voluminous, tiered smock dress, which originally came in deep purple, but is now in black.
Ilincic said looking back at her archive, she believes that “as a designer you evolve and change season to season.” “Culture has changed and the economic situation has changed,” Ilincic mused, noting that all those influences impact her aesthetic.
And while Ilincic launched her line on the London Fashion Week schedule for spring 2006 with “12 occasion dresses,” the line now comprises looks that her woman can wear “seven days a week,” the designer said. Alongside ready-to-wear, the label also includes a children’s collection, Blossom, and swimwear, while looking ahead she has categories such as handbags and fine jewelry in her

Zegna Unveils Japan-Made Capsule Collection

TOKYO—In bid to highlight this country’s high level of craftsmanship and lure new customers, Ermenegildo Zegna is rolling out an exclusive capsule collection made entirely in Japan by local artisans.
The 22-piece collection, labeled “Ermenegildo Zegna Couture Made in Japan”, will go on sale Saturday at Zegna’s flagship in Ginza. It will bow at the brand’s Osaka store on Oct. 1. The company plans to roll out certain pieces to other stores around the world later this year.
Zegna celebrated the collection’s launch with a cocktail party Thursday night at the recently opened Aman Tokyo hotel in the central business district of Otemachi. Stefano Pilati, Zegna’s head of design, and chief executive Gildo Zegna hosted the affair. Guests sipped champagne as they mingled in the lobby area of the hotel, where a nearly 100-foot-high ceiling creates the illusion of being inside a giant Japanese paper lantern.
Photographer Takashi Homma shot the capsule collection on five Japanese “key opinion leaders,” including actor Ryo Kase, who appeared in Clint Eastwood’s “Letters from Iwo Jima,” as well as a chef, a musician and an architect. Homma’s photos were on display at the party, along with a video about the project and the collection itself. Olivier Zahm,

Capsule Men’s RTW Spring 2016

Capsule nabbed a slot at New York Fashion Week: Men’s and showcased seven emerging designers who will also appear at the trade show next week.
 
London-based brand CMMN explored the concept of real versus fake for its spring collection and this was realized with silhouettes that were purposely off. Cropped jackets with longer sleeves were styled with wide-leg trousers and shorter, slim pants. On the fabric side, technical nylons and latex were paired with organic denim and French terry. It was a nice play on proportion and fabric that made for a strong offering.
 
Maiden Noir’s lineup was based on atmospheric, landscape photographs taken by Amanda Ringstad. On-trend staples — anoraks, bomber jackets, jogging pants and matching denim coordinates — came in either washed-out fabrics or strong jolts of cobalt and copper. It was a fresh interpretation of commercial pieces.
 
There was a nautical tone in Baartmans and Siegel’s collection. Coming in various shades of blue, white and gray, the assortment featured a utilitarian jacket covered in an enlarged digital print and sailing shorts worn over chambray styles. The designers updated luxury sportswear nicely with print and texture.

Galeries Lafayette Taps Hyères Finalist for Capsule Line

NEW FACE: French department store chain Galeries Lafayette has tapped Louis-Gabriel Nouchi, a finalist in the 2014 edition of the Hyères Festival, to design a 15-piece capsule collection for fall set to go on sale on Sept. 23.
The collection is made up of minimalistic looks in bright colors that use abstract patterns and oversized volumes to mix feminine and masculine codes.
“The idea was to have that masculine-feminine ambivalence, on one side a very masculine woman who becomes even more feminine like that I think, and on the other side a man playing with the feminine codes without being ridiculous. It’s about the right balance between the two,” Nouchi said in a YouTube interview.
“I also really like color, because I think it’s the field in which we can try new combinations, new proportions,” he explained.
A graduate of La Cambre, Nouchi was spotted at the Hyères Festival, which Galeries Lafayette has sponsored for eight years. Recently, the retailer recruited young design duo Marius et Léonie to create a capsule collection for its Version Originale private label. It has also supported the ANDAM prize since 2003.

Mary Katrantzou, Adidas Launch Second Capsule Collection

EIGHTIES EDGE: “I’m an Eighties baby, and it was amazing to just go back and look at all of these aerobics classes and the Seoul Olympics and just take symbols from that,” said Mary Katrantzou at the launch party in London for her second capsule collection for Adidas Originals. “We started thinking about symbolism and how we can take that within the context of Adidas. But also the silhouettes — there are little tennis dresses and diving suits and track tops so I thought that was a fun spin on the idea of symbols.” The party took place on the rooftop of Snap Studios in East London, with totem poles made by Katrantzou and the prop designer Richard Storey and adorned with the designer’s prints.
Katrantzou used collages made from sports items including a stopwatch, a tennis racket and a badminton shuttlecock for the 24-piece collection. Pieces include a structured T-shirt adorned with patches and crystals, a reversible varsity jacket, a crepe tank dress, leggings, tracksuit bottoms, boyfriend T-shirts, boy shorts, jersey swimsuits and footwear. Katrantzou also put a holographic spin on footwear with bold patterns and floral jacquards.
Prices range from 70 euros, or $ 76, for a graphic print tank to

3X1 and Victor Cruz Create Capsule Collection

Victor Cruz has made another fashion play.
The New York Giants player, who fronts Givenchy’s fall 2015 campaign, has partnered with denim line 3X1 on a capsule collection that will be available this September. This is the first celebrity collaboration for the denim brand.
“We really like him as a person,” said Scott Morrison, founder of 3X1. “He came into the shop the first time after the Giants won the Super Bowl and we’ve always wanted to do something a little more unique and special on the men’s side.”
Cruz brought back ideas from a Japan research trip to help design the five-piece collection, which is called A Fall to Remember.
According to Morrison, the line is made from Japanese fabrics and features core items that can fill out a guy’s wardrobe. It includes a classic shirt-jacket with vintage-inspired patch details; a long-sleeve chambray shirt with ombré detailing on one sleeve; a coated denim pant with a tuxedo stripe; a pair of ripped jeans made from stretch selvedge denim, and an indigo dyed wool Melton military coat.
The line is priced from $ 325 for the tuxedo pant to $ 1,325 for the pure indigo wool coat and proceeds from the collection will go to the Victor
