A Homecoming, and a New Chapter for Marques’ Almeida

LONDON — A lot has changed for Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida since the arrival of their daughter Maria, and the 300,000 euro cash injection and mentorship they received after winning the second edition of the LVMH Prize. One thing, however, remains the same. They always spend their summers in Portugal with the family, while supervising the production of the new season’s merchandise. Almost everything from Marques’ Almeida is made in Portugal. The brand is arguably one of the most successful LVMH Prize winners to date: It boasts 85 stockists worldwide, while a new web site with a better shopping experience, and pre-owned items is set to launch at the end of this month. The brand’s signature distressed denim, oversize down jackets and chunky boots are street style staples widely seen on showgoers. The couple, who are returning to London Fashion Week after showing in Paris for two seasons, realizes that if they want to sustain growth, the brand needs to do things differently. Marques’ Almeida dipped into see-now-buy-now with its spring 2019 collection and now the designers want to experiment with a direct-to-consumer approach and to swing the spotlight onto the end consumer. During an interview Marques said she wants to put the focus on

Carroll & Co. to Close Store, Begin New Chapter

BEVERLY HILLS — This isn’t a story about a retailer that’s succumbed to a challenging business environment or digital disruptors.
Beverly Hills men’s retailer Carroll & Co. — frequented by Hollywood celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Cary Grant, Gene Kelly, Jimmy Stewart and Jack Lemmon — is in the midst of a store-closing sale after nearly 70 years as the founder’s son looks to relocate and reinvent the business.
John Carroll, whose father Richard Carroll started the business in 1949, has his work cut out for him overseeing the store closing sale. But once that task is wrapped, he will reenter the men’s made-to-measure business — a segment of Carroll & Co. that has taken off in recent years. About 400 square feet of the store’s 8,000-square-foot footprint is dedicated to made-to-measure and so much of its business is done there, Carroll said.
“We do so much of our business out of that small space with our plethora of loyal custom clothing customers that, for me to transition our business and be able to continue to service those people who have been so loyal over the years, makes all the sense in the world,” he said. “We do more custom business than we

Peter Hunsinger’s Latest Chapter: Socks Sized Like Shoes

Peter Hunsinger learned a lot about fashion during his three-plus decades working for Condé Nast. And now he’s putting that knowledge to work for himself.
Hunsinger, who left the magazine company in 2017 after 36 years at GQ, Vanity Fair, Architectural Digest, Gourmet, Golf Digest and more, is now going into the sock business.
He teamed with Tom Kallish of Tommie Copper to create Kane 11, a direct-to-consumer business that will provide a unique take on socks: The assortment will be sold in individual shoe sizes rather than in the range offered by other brands. Hunsinger said the company has applied for a provisional patent for the sizing model.
“There are two things I learned during my time at GQ working with Jim Nelson and Jim Moore,” Hunsinger said. “Guys really put an emphasis on fit and personal style. And there’s a revolution in men’s fit in the direct-to-consumer business with brands such as Proper Cloth, Untuckit and Bonobos.”
Add to that, guys’ propensity to buy more online and Hunsinger saw an opportunity.
“Nobody that we know of has made socks in individual sizes,” he said. Rather, they’re sized 9-12, small, medium, large or one size fits all, he said. So he and Kallish found

Ewert Departure Seen as His Decision, but Firm Ready for Next Chapter

It was Doug Ewert’s choice to leave Tailored Brands, but his departure as chief executive officer is also seen as an opportunity to get some fresh blood into the company.
That was the consensus of the men’s wear community on Wednesday as they continued to digest the surprise news late Tuesday that the longtime leader of the Fremont, Calif.-based company would be exiting at the end of September. Ewert, 54, said after the market closed on Tuesday that he would be retiring after a 23-year career with the men’s wear retailer.
Wall Street was apparently not rattled by the news since the company’s stock rose 4 percent Wednesday to close at $ 23.39.
On Wednesday, Ewert told WWD he would be open to providing more details about his decision and future plans after the company’s earnings are released on Sept. 12.
Coincidentally, the news of Ewert’s impending departure came at the same time Bruce Thorn, president and chief operating officer, said he too would be leaving Tailored Brands. Thorn, 51, has been named president and ceo of Big Lots Inc. He will assume that role at the end of September.
Once both Ewert and Thorn are gone next month, that leaves Tailored Brands without its two

Mark Hamill Says His ‘Final Chapter’ of Star Wars Will Be ‘Bittersweet’ Without Carrie Fisher

Mark Hamill is paying tribute to Carrie Fisher before his return to Star Wars.

The 66-year-old actor Tweeted on Sunday about his return to the franchise and shared some pictures of his time with Fisher in the previous movies. The two starred as twins Luke and Leia through 5 previous Star Wars films.

“It’s bittersweet facing my final chapter without her-She is simply irreplaceable,” he wrote. “I’m finding solace in the fact that she won’t BE replaced & would love the worldwide outpouring of affection from those who loved her when they heard the news.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

On Friday, Disney and Lucasfilm revealed the official cast list for the ninth trip to a galaxy far, far away and it contained one major surprise: Fisher is back as Leia, despite her shocking death in 2016.

According to the studio’s online announcement, production on the newest Star Wars adventure is expected to commence on Aug. 1, and Fisher is among the listed cast members returning for the film, thanks to some unused footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  

Returning director J.J. Abrams, who co-wrote the script for Episode IX alongside Chris Terrio, said in a statement, “We desperately loved Carrie Fisher. Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honor Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.”

Fisher died December, 2016 at age 60 of a cardiac arrest.

#FollowMeTo Couple’s Wedding Photo Is A Breathtaking Chapter In Their Adventure

Photographer Murad Osmann is famous for following his girlfriend around the world. Last weekend, he made a promise to hold her hand forever.

Osmann’s “Follow Me To” project began in 2012, when he started capturing images of girlfriend Natalia Zakharova holding his hand in different locales around the globe. After rising to Instagram fame and publishing a book in January, the two married on Saturday, June 6 in a gorgeous ceremony.

Osmann shared a snapshot from the nuptials along with a sweet message to his bride, writing, “I promise to hold your hand and tell you I love you every day for the rest of our lives.”



“We were all waiting for the moment to do the #followmeto shot right after the ceremony,” Osmann told The Huffington Post in an email Tuesday. “After we both said ‘yes,’ we [decided] to ask all the guests to participate in our photo … In the shot [on my account] I am reaching her hand and trying to follow her to the big red door that was a part of the ceremony decorations and we [used] it instead of the typical wedding arch. She is leading me to the new life and in the picture she is inviting me into it.”



Zakharova, who looked beautiful in a Vera Wang gown, shared photos on her own Instagram account including ones by photographer Nikolay Zverkov.
