Bldwn, an American fashion brand, is collaborating with Kansas City’s Major League Soccer team, Sporting Kansas City, on a limited-edition collection that takes you right to left field. “We want to tell our local story on a global stage. We have a passion for fashion and sports, so we want to push the boundaries of what this type of collaboration can do to bring people together,” said John Moncke, vice president of brand revenue and stadium at Sporting Kansas City. “Sporting and Bldwn began in KC, and we’re both representing the local area far beyond.” The partnership was a special connection from the beginning, with Bldwn and Sporting Kansas City desiring to place the fan, who may also be a customer, at the heart of local sports culture. “I’ve known Matt Baldwin [founder of Bldwn], and the collaboration has happened behind the scenes for a long time. I’ve picked his brain about things like our uniform design to branded events that we have hosted for fans,” Moncke added. “One of our conversations even led to building a soccer field on the roof of a building for an event a few years ago.” SKC x Bldwn emphasizes comfort and community, with each piece celebrating Sporting

Melania Trump’s Stylist to be Honored by City Officials in French Hometown

As the year comes to a close, First Lady Melania Trump’s designer choices have been the focus of plenty of listicles.
Soon her stylist of choice, Hervé Pierre, will be in the spotlight in his hometown. Pierre’s holiday celebrations will be extended Wednesday in Sancerre, France, where he will receive the keys to the city.
“I’m so touched because everyone is working in the wine industry or in the goat cheese industry. Sancerre is located on top of a hill, which is where all the vineyards are. And at the bottom of the hill you have Chavignol goat cheese, which is the most delicious and expensive one in the world — for people who like goat cheese.” he said. “It was not so easy as a kid to do fashion in that environment.”
“The good news was that they knew what I wanted to do. You have a lot of parents who look at their teenagers and say, ‘What are we going to do with that one?’ That was not the case with my parents. I knew exactly what I wanted to do — which university, which school. It was actually a very straight line. There were no surprises,” he said.

Garment District Rezoning Goes Forward With City Council Approval

It’s official — the New York City Council has approved rezoning of Manhattan’s Garment District.
After decades of wrangling and dispute among city officials, landlords, designers and long-term tenants — the sometimes warring parties have come to a truce. Thursday’s landmark vote frees up parameters that were put in place in 1987. Since that time under Mayor Ed Koch’s administration, which established the district, landlords in Manhattan’s Garment District have been required to add a square foot of garment space for every square foot removed for some other use.
Garment District loyalists lobbied for a building earmarked for garment manufacturing, a tax-incentive program to enlist more owners and to provide tools to upgrade the industry and train workers for long-term survival of the garment center’s nucleus. Community Boards Four and Five, Pratt Center for Community Development, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, the Design Trust for Public Space and The Municipal Art Society, have been pushing for Garment Center preservation.
The city’s Economic Development Corp. and the Garment District Alliance Business Improvement District, which more or less covers the area bordered by 35th to 41st Streets and Fifth to Ninth Avenues, have been behind the rezoning, which they feel would benefit the

Talbots Partners With the ‘Christmas Spectacular’ Starring the Radio City Rockettes

HOLIDAY CHEER: In one of the more unexpected branding coups, Talbots has partnered with the “Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes,” and will be the official women’s fashion and footwear partner.
In addition to being a sponsor with presenting sponsor Chase, the Massachusetts-based chain of boutiques will have a replica storefront in the department store scene during this year’s “Christmas Spectacular” production at Radio City Music Hall. That scenario centers on two brothers who are on the hunt for the ideal Christmas gift for their sister and they wind up on a wintry adventure to discover the magic behind Santa Claus.
The Talbots-Rockettes connection will not only be on the historic hardwood stage at Rockefeller Center. The high-kicking dancers will be featured in Talbots’ holiday campaign, which will encompass the holiday catalogue and the retailer’s site. For the crucial fourth-quarter selling season, Talbots has recruited the Rockettes to field their share of meet-and-greets and to make cameos at select customer events at the Talbots Madison Avenue flagship.
Set to bow Nov. 9, this year’s production will feature a more technologically advanced “Christmas Lights” finale, combining innovation — futuristic digital projections with more traditional aspects that will extend the show beyond the stage.

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

Party time!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cabana, Funkshion Link for Magic City Fair in Miami Beach

When IMG pulled out of Miami Swim Week in 2015 after a 10-year run, it sent brands and buyers into a tailspin. Without a central location and schedule, attendees wore themselves out scrambling from makeshift venue to makeshift venue or threw their hands up in frustration and skipped fashion shows altogether.
After hearing enough complaints, Sam Ben-Avraham, founder of Cabana trade show and Liberty Fairs elsewhere, and Aleksandar Salé Stojanovic, founder of Funkshion, a fashion and event production company in Miami, hope to fill the hole with Magic City. Their five-day, multi-platform fashion and lifestyle fair centers on Cabana’s and Funkshion’s respective locales across Collins Avenue from each other between 21st and 22nd Streets in Miami Beach.
“By joining forces, we’re able to go to the next level of production, logistics and hospitality,” said Stojanovic, of curating fashion shows, educational trade seminars, networking parties and lifestyle activations like culinary demonstrations, concerts and volleyball games with the same scrutiny as Cabana’s vetting process to avoid oversaturation. “The idea is to improve on IMG, and the city of Miami Beach is being financially supportive. They’re 100 percent in because they recognize the potential.”
In the past few years, Funkshion has presented runway collections in a 500-person tent

Eclectic to Bring Its French Sensibility to New York City

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Todd Snyder Opens City Gym 2.0 Pop-up in Flatiron District

NEW YORK — The Todd Snyder brand has grown quite a bit since the first City Gym opened in collaboration with Champion Sportswear in NoLIta in 2013.
Not only has the label been sold to American Eagle Outfitters, but the designer has operated his own eponymous store in the Madison Park district for the last year. He has also kept busy working on collaborations with brands as varied as Timex and New Era.
But Snyder still found the time to whip up the second iteration of his original retail concept, a pop-up called City Gym 2.0 that opens today at 108 Fifth Ave. at 16th Street.
“The first one did so well, it was open for 1 and a half years,” he said during a walk-through of the store on Thursday. “We had an opportunity to take over this space, so we decided to open City Gym 2.0, a more modern take on what we did downtown.”
The original pop-up had more of a locker room aesthetic, but this has “more of a heritage vibe,” he said.
The store, located across from the Google pop-up, formerly housed North Sails. As a result, Snyder said the location didn’t require a lot of heavy lifting to convert

Americans In Paris Share Top Tips for the City of Light

WHEN IN PARIS: Sunday morning, the designers at the Americans in Paris showroom on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, backed by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue, were still buzzing from Saturday night’s cocktail party co-hosted by Karlie Kloss. “It was amazing,” said Joshua Cooper, one half of design duo Rochambeau.
“Karlie Kloss was wearing one of my looks, this white skirt and a shirt dress,” said a proud Adam Selman. The designer added that the showroom had been busier this season, perhaps because March’s session had been hampered by the rain.
Cooper, meanwhile, apologized for the half-empty racks for his brand. “There’s a lot of models running around in our clothing this week, so it’s not all here,” he explained.
Other designers shared their favorite spots in Paris to check out while in town. “I did my favorite thing in Paris, which is to go vintage shopping,” said lingerie designer Morgan Lane.
The Rue de Bretagne in the Marais is her favorite place for hunting for second-hand gems, she added. “I bought an amazing earring with gold strings that drip down, and a beautiful white ruffled dress,” she added. Lane also hoped to get out to the Foire de Chatou, one

Off-White, Monse to Design Costumes for New York City Ballet

New York City Ballet will soon mark the sixth installment of its Fall Gala, with costumes by an unconventional group of designers.
Monse’s Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim, Off-White’s Virgil Abloh, Tsumori Chisato and Jonathan Saunders have been paired with choreographers, working in tandem to create original works set to premiere at the Sept. 28 event.
Monse will work with New York City Ballet principal dancer Lauren Lovette to create costumes for her second choreographic work for the company. Chisato has been paired with NYCB resident choreographer Justin Peck. Abloh will design costumes for a new piece by choreographer Gianna Reisen. Saunders — designing ballet costumes independently of DVF, where he is chief creative officer — has been paired with NYCB soloist Troy Schumacher, who is creating his third choreographic work for the company.
Sarah Jessica Parker has reprised her role as the gala’s event chair. The fashion gala was conceived by Parker in 2012. Each year, the actress, designer and producer wrangles fashion designers for the costuming task. Past participants have included Thom Browne, Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, Carolina Herrera, Marques’Almeida, Valentino, Olivier Theyskens and Dries Van Noten, among others.

Lingerie and Beachwear Market in Upbeat Mood for Mode City

PARIS — The mood was resilient at the recent Mode City and Interfilière intimate apparel trade shows here, reversing several years of declines in visitor numbers. Exhibitors and visitors alike were in a positive state of mind, especially as concerns the growing beachwear and ath-leisure categories.
Visitor numbers at Mode City grew 18 percent, show organizer Eurovet said, without giving numbers, with 72 percent of traffic hailing from international markets. Visitor numbers for sister fabric fair Interfilière were not disclosed. The events took place at the Porte de Versailles exhibition center from July 8-11, returning to the French capital after moving temporarily to Lyon last year because of the UEFA Euro 2016 soccer final in Paris.
“Business is performing quite well,” said Lise Charmel managing director Olivier Piquet. “The weather has been good in Europe, which is boosting the swimwear market, and even the department stores have been seeing good growth. It’s giving the market a renewed energy,” he said. Lise Charmel was seeing strong demand for its plain swimsuits with cutout motifs and its exclusive tropical prints, Piquet said.
Caroline Laplace, buying manager for lingerie at Printemps, mirrored the positive sentiment. Beachwear, she said, “is performing very well. It has been a

Cole Haan Enlists Justin Peck to ‘Choreograph’ New York City Ballet Campaign

Dancers from the New York City Ballet, along with company choreographer-in-residence Justin Peck, are lending an animated touch to Cole Haan’s newest campaign.
Peck, flanked by corps de ballet member Gretchen Smith and principal dancers Amar Ramasar, Megan Fairchild and Sara Mearns, leap and bound in branded GIFs and still images — portraying the brand’s Grand Evolution, Grand Motion and Studio Grand collections.
Cole Haan has worked with Smith, Fairchild and Mearns since 2014. The campaign marks its first partnerships with Peck and Ramasar.
Peck noted that the GIF medium proved challenging to choreograph. “It was a little tricky, especially the shots that involved all five of us — it was a really great challenge. The GIFs are super fun to make, we ended up kind of learning as we went because GIFs have very short windows of time to display movement. We had to find the right pacing of movement so it looked fluid and coherent.”
The choreographer is in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., for the company’s annual residency at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. This summer he will spend time in San Francisco to work with the San Francisco Ballet while also workshopping movements for the Broadway revival of “Carousel.”

‘Broad City’ Season 4 Trailer Is Here With A ‘F**k You, Trump’ Moment

Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are back for season 4 of “Broad City,” and things are looking as outrageous as ever. 

Fans can look forward to seeing some major cameos (Ru Paul, Wanda Sykes and Steve Buscemi to name a few), lots of pot, choice words for the president, an encounter with plastic surgery, a trip to Florida, and of course, a strap-on.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Glazer described the newest season as “dark as fuck.” She added, “It is as dark as the world is today.” 

Season 4 takes place in the winter, Jacobson told Vanity Fair last January, which is a departure from past episodes. The duo wrote the fourth season thinking that Hillary Clinton would win the election so they had to change the script before shooting in February. Clinton appeared on the show in March.

“Broad City” returns to Comedy Central on August 23.

Uber inadvertently underpaid New York City drivers for over two years

Uber inadvertently underpaid New York City drivers for over two yearsUber generally takes a commission from its drivers after deducting taxes and some fees, but it instead took a higher percentage from its New York City drivers using the full fare before accounting for sales taxes and fees, according to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the news. “We are committed to paying every driver every penny they are owed – plus interest – as quickly as possible,” Rachel Holt, Uber’s regional general manager for U.S. and Canada, said via email. All New York City drivers under the 2014 agreement would be eligible for a refund, regardless of whether they are still active or not, as long as they completed an Uber ride, the Journal report said.

New York City Ballet’s Unity Phelan Counting on Milly for Gala Dress

MILLY AT THE BARRE: As a former dancer and the mother of one enrolled in the School of American Ballet, Milly designer Michelle Smith’s alliance with New York City Ballet’s Unity Phelan is not about keeping up appearances.
Phelan, who became the NYCB’s youngest soloist last year, will wear a customized Milly dress at the NYCB’s Spring Gala on May 4. Smith met Phelan through the dancer’s boyfriend, Cameron Dieck, at a fund-raiser for the School of American Ballet. “He was seated next to me. He is a really nice guy and such a good dancer. He said, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re Milly. You have to meet my girlfriend Unity. She’s beautiful and she would look amazing in your clothes,’” Smith said. “He introduced us right there at the event and we all just became friends.”
Smith invited Phelan, who earned acclaim in Christopher Wheeldon’s “American Rhapsody” last year, to visit her showroom to check out her dresses and fabrics. “We’re very comfortable together so it was rather informal. Cameron came up with her,” Smith said. As of Thursday, the dancer was deciding between a black sheer organza silk coupe motif with a plunging halter neckline with a large billowy skirt and

Pope Francis Warns Leaders to Be Humble in Surprise TED Talk from Vatican City: ‘Your Power Will Ruin You’

Pope Francis promoted humility and warned of the dangers of too much power in a sobering TED Talk delivered straight from Vatican City.

In his recorded TED Talk shown on Tuesday at TED’s international conference in Vancouver, the 80-year-old spoke out about compassion and caring for others, but also used the opportunity to warn arrogant leaders.

“Please, allow me to say it loud and clear,” he began. “The more powerful you are, the more your actions will have an impact on people, the more responsible you are to act humbly. If you don’t, your power will ruin you, and you will ruin the other.”

 

The remarks come about a week after White House press secretary Sean Spicer said at a press briefing that Donald Trump would “be honored” to meet the Pope. Although the president and the pontiff haven’t seen eye to eye in the past, Archbishop Angelo Becciu told the Italian news agency ANSA that “Pope Francis is always ready to receive heads of state who request an audience.”

The Pope drew on his own family’s circumstances when encouraging listeners to care for the needy. He said he often wonders how his grandparents, migrants from Italy who moved to Argentina, would have done in today’s “culture of waste.”

“I could have very well ended up among today’s ‘discarded’ people. And that’s why I always ask myself, deep in my heart: ‘Why them and not me?’ ” he said.

Pope Francis Throws a Pizza Party for 1,500 Homeless People to Honor Mother Teresa

It took more than a year for TED officials to convince the Pope to participate in the conference, CNN reports. And Bruno Giussani, the TED international curator who organized the Pope’s talk, hailed His Holiness as the “only moral voice” capable of reaching people across boundaries.

In his nearly 18-minute address, the Pope declared: “A single individual is enough for hope to exist, and that individual can be you. And then there will be another ‘you,’ and another ‘you,’ and it turns into an ‘us.’ And so, does hope begin when we have an ‘us?’ No. Hope began with one ‘you.’ When there is an ‘us,’ there begins a revolution.”
