MILAN — Dondup has taken direct control of its children’s wear line.
Starting with the spring/summer 2019 season, the collection will be produced by the Italian specialist Gimel, although Dondup will design and distribute the range.
The line, which was introduced in 2006, will be also available at Dondup online store and at the brand’s flagship on Milan’s Via della Spiga. The spring/summer 2019 collection will be presented at international trade show Pitti Bimbo.
“We are excited to bring our children’s wear line in house, because it’s a strategic project that will strongly contribute to the company’s growth,” said Dondup president Matteo Marzotto. “We are happy to have chosen Pitti Bimbo as the stage to present this new phase, and we really thank Pitti’s organizers for the great attention and professionalism they demonstrated.”
According to Marzotto, Dondup will focus both on consolidating the line’s business in Italy and expanding its international presence.
The Dondup children’s wear range is available at 150 multi-brand retailers in the world and, according to Marzotto, the goal is for the line to account for 10 percent of the company’s total business.
Dondup, which is controlled by private equity fund L Catterton, closed 2017 with revenues of 56.5 million euros.

Madonna to Direct Ballet Biopic ‘Taking Flight’ About Michaela DePrince

Madonna will get in the director’s chair again with the forthcoming film “Taking Flight,” a drama based on the life of Sierra Leone-born ballerina Michaela DePrince.
MGM began developing the film in 2015 after acquiring the rights to Michaela and her mother Elaine DePrince’s memoir “Taking Flight: From War Orphan to Star Ballerina.” The book follows Michaela’s life from an orphan in war-torn Sierra Leone to her adoption in the U.S and her journey to becoming a professional dancer.
“Michaela’s journey resonated with me deeply as both an artist and an activist who understands adversity,” Madonna said in a statement first published in Variety. “We have a unique opportunity to shed light on Sierra Leone and let Michaela be the voice for all the orphaned children she grew up beside. I am honored to bring her story to life.”
The screenplay was written by Camilla Blackett and producers include Alloy Entertainment’s Leslie Morgenstein and Elysa Koplovitz Dutton along with Ben Pugh and Madonna’s longtime manager Guy Oseary.
Many know DePrince from the 2012 ballet documentary “First Position.” She was adopted at age four and taken to the United States by Elaine and Charles DePrince. She landed her first professional job at age 17 in

No B.S. Guide to Brand-Building by Direct Response


Entrepreneurs and small business owners are urged to avoid the two biggest branding mistakes they can make-first, investing in building their brand in ways that copycat big-name companies, and second, struggling to build a brand sensitive to everyone and anyone, rather than focusing on those who are spending with them. Led by Dan S. Kennedy, with the support of Forrest Walden and Jim Cavale, the co-founders of Iron Tribe Fitness, and other marketing/branding vets including Bill Gough, the number-one marketing adviser to Allstate agents; Steve Adams, CEO of a chain of 21 retail stores and an e-commerce business, and Nick Nanton, of the Dicks-Nanton Celebrity Branding Agency, entrepreneurs learn how to develop and gain profit from their personal or business brand-without corporate-sized investment. Mastering Kennedy’s branding truths and utilizing proven direct-response advertising and marketing methods, entrepreneurs create their own brand tribe-customers who believe in, buy, and promote their brand. Truths and tactics are illustrated with case studies, examples and insights from other well-known brands.

Harrison Ford Set To Return For ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel That Denis Villeneuve Will Direct

Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Rick Deckhard in a sequel to “Blade Runner.” Alcon Entertainment announced the news in a press release, while also touting that Denis Villeneuve (“Prisoners”) would replace Ridley Scott in the director’s chair. Scott, who directed the acclaimed first film, is still on board as executive producer.

“We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on ‘Prisoners,'” Alcon co-founders and co-CEO’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said in a statement. “Hampton [Fancher] and Michael [Green], with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most universally celebrated films of all time, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with this amazing, creative team.” Fancher was the original film’s co-writer.

Ford was officially offered the role back in May of last year. “We would be honored, and we are hopeful, that Harrison will be part of our project,” Kosove and Johnson said at the time.

In December, Scott said Ford was excited about the project. “I sent him this [script] and he said it’s the best thing he’s ever read,” Scott told MTV. “It’s very relevant to what happened in the first one.”

According to the press release, the story for the new film will pick up “several decades” after the conclusion of 1982’s “Blade Runner.” Production is expected to start in the summer of 2016.

Nicole Holofcener On ‘Enough Said,’ Her Golden Globe Snub And The TV Show She’d Most Like To Direct

Nicole Holofcener wrote and directed one of the year’s most-loved sleeper hits: “Enough Said,” the romantic-comedy starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini as divorcees who spark an unexpected connection. Holofcener’s naturalistic writing style and grounded character dramedies have charmed audiences on the big screen for the better part of two decades, first with “Walking and Talking,” and later with movies like “Friends with Money” and “Please Give.” She’s also directed episodes of some of the decade’s best television series: “Sex and the City,” “Gilmore Girls,” “Six Feet Under,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Enlightened,” among others.

Last year, however, she was the subject of much acclaim. Reviewing “Enough Said,” Slate’s Dana Stevens praised Holofcener’s “admirable delicacy” and “razor-sharp dialogue.” Stephanie Zacharek of the Village Voice applauded her “knack for observing not just the way people respond to extreme situations, but what they do in everyday ones.” Along the way, the writer/director collected Best Screenplay nods at the Satellite Awards and the Independent Spirit Awards. If things go our way, she’ll earn an Oscar nomination for the movie come Jan. 16. In the meantime, though, we snagged a few minutes with Holofcener on the phone, where she was candid about being snubbed for the Golden Globe, the television show she’d most love to direct and what it was like to work with Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini.

Did you have Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini in mind while writing the script? Was anyone else considered for these roles?
I did not have them in mind. I did have a couple of other actors in mind that I won’t mention at the moment because it would be kind of uncouth. I had a general idea of who I would like and who would be great, but you never know who’ll be interested or available. But it does help, as a writer, to put faces on characters. It helps me to write.

As an actress, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a master of improv. Was there an improv component to the project?
We stuck to the script. It’s funny, I wouldn’t say so much improv as ad-libbing. I don’t know if there’s a big difference, but it’s not like they would improvise and take the scene somewhere different. It’s more like they added a line or two, or changed a line and made it funnier, or added a line at the end of the scene where they thought maybe I cut. It was more like that, and it was very useful. I kept so much of their ad-libs; they’re hilarious and smart and so appropriate for their characters. It was great.

Can you offer an example of a scene that was improved by ad-libbing?
Yeah, Julia gets out of the car, she says, “I like your paddles.” He says, “I like your ass.” And that was Jim. That’s not in the script, and he said that in rehearsal, and I said, “Oh, you’ve got to say that when we shoot.” And he’s like, “No, Albert would never say that.” And there comes a point where it’s like, yeah, Albert might not have said it, but it makes Albert so much sexier and more funny that I want him to say that. I want him to be able to do that. It’s wonderful, right? I mean, what a great way to end the scene — it adds so much.

Right, an added punch.
And it makes him seem sexier because he has the guts to say that.

I know you cast Catherine Keener in basically every movie you direct. Do you think of her as a muse? What’s your gravitation toward her?
My gravitation toward her is based on her talent and our comfort level. I think she’s an extraordinary actor. She has been my muse. I didn’t write [Keener’s “Enough Said” character] Marianne with her in my mind, at least not consciously — but I have written parts just for her, and so in that respect she’s a huge inspiration. She’s fun, she’s smart, she makes my scripts better. Let’s go with that, right?

Did you get to talk to Julia after the announcement of her Golden Globe nomination?
No. Well, I texted her because I never know where the hell she is. I texted her, and then she texted me back. I texted her congratulations, and she texted me, “I hope you’re all right,” because I didn’t get a nomination.

And are you all right?
Well, I was very disappointed, actually. Of course, anybody who says they’re not is lying. As much as I was disappointed for the film and for myself, but I was also disappointed because I really wanted to go and be with her and have fun doing that together. So I don’t think that’s going to happen.

So you don’t see yourself getting invited as being associated with her nomination?
I don’t think so. And I don’t think I’d feel comfortable going since I wasn’t nominated or the movie wasn’t. I’m very happy she was. I’d be heartbroken if she wasn’t; she deserves every acknowledgement she gets.

You’ve directed some of the biggest TV shows of the past decade. What one show would you love to direct right now?
Oh gee, what’s on the air now? I’ve stopped watching anything recently. I read about that show “Getting On,” I think it’s called.

Yeah, with Laurie Metcalf?
Exactly. I wanted a job on that so badly, and I just found out it’s not picked up, I think. Maybe I should figure that out.

It’s on the air now. You should watch it, it’s great.
Yeah, I’m planning on watching the whole thing. It’s so up my alley that when I read about it, I was like, “I want to do one of those!”

It totally seems like your directing style. Would you want to do “Veep”?
Absolutely, I do. I kind of feel like that’s a machine that’s going so well. I don’t know who directs all the different ones, but it’s not as much in my style, obviously. I don’t know, it would be a blast, it really would. But I don’t know, it’s in Washington, and they’ve kind of got their directors set, so it’s not something I’m hoping to — I don’t know how to put it.

Do you have a classic episode of TV or a TV show as a whole that you look back and wish you had been a part of?
Well, yeah, I wish I had directed “The Sopranos.” Watching that, I was like, “Ugh, wish I could have gotten in there, that would have been a blast.” That didn’t happen. I grew up watching “I Love Lucy” obsessively, but I’d be dead by now if I had directed one of those.

You have a “special thanks” credit on “Where the Wild Things Are.” Did your involvement with that film lead you to meet James Gandolfini?
Oh no, I actually just wrote and directed “Where the Wild Things Are” and so they felt that had to put my name there. [Laughs] No, I did not meet Jim through [director Spike Jonze], but I watched several cuts of that movie and gave feedback and helped him try to fix some dialogue. That was the “thank you.” I met Jim in a very traditional way: I actually sent him a script of mine a few years ago and wanted to meet him about being in it, but he wasn’t quite right for that particular part, so I kept in the back of my mind because I loved meeting him so much.

Can you tell me what particular part that was?
It was a part that Oliver Platt eventually had in “Please Give.” He was Catherine Keener’s husband, and Jim would have been great, but he had just come off of “The Sopranos” more recently and his character kept screwing around. He had so many mistresses, and in “Please Give,” the character cheats and I didn’t want that connotation. Although I thought he would have been great in the part as well, but I’m so glad I got a bigger part for him and a chance to work with him longer than that.

Your next movie, “Every Secret Thing,” seems different. What attracted you to a crime story, and how do you decide once you’ve written a script whether you’ll direct it as well?
Well, this one was very easy. I was hired by Frances McDormand, who was producing it, to adapt the book, and I thought the book was really interesting and psychological. And the main two characters were 11-year-old girls, and I love that kind of dark psychological stuff, and I enjoyed writing it. And when it came time to direct it, I realized I couldn’t go with something that dark that long in my life.

So that was a decision you made?
Yeah, and it involved the death of a baby, and I just couldn’t go there.

So you could write it, but you didn’t want to have to put yourself in the scene of having to direct it for maybe months on end?
Yeah, and then edit it for months, exactly. I couldn’t face that. I think I made the right choice.

“Enough Said” is in theaters now. It will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Jan. 14.
