Kate Young Getting Into the Podcast Game With PopSugar

Kate Young is no stranger to collaborations, but hosting a podcast is new. The stylist, with celebrity clients like Sienna Miller, Margot Robbie, Selena Gomez and Sophie Turner, among many others, is teaming with PopSugar for the launch of a podcast underwritten by sole advertiser Sorel, a footwear brand also getting into the space for the first time. The project is titled “The Step” and will have Young sitting down with six notable women for weekly 30-minute discussions on the moment that led to their success. Although Young has a number of brand collaborations under her belt, including Target, Tura, even the liqueur St. Germain, and she is relatively well known among her peers, this is one of her first forays into being a media personality, and she was pleased to be approached for the project. “The idea is really inspiring,” Young said. “I can’t wait to talk to these powerful, interesting women about how they do what they do and what decision they made that led them to where they are now.” Her first guests will be actor (and styling client) Nina Dobrev, sports broadcaster Ros Gold-Onwude and blogger and motivational speaker Mama Cax. Young’s conversation with Gold-Onwude will be recorded at a

Nick Graham Expands Into Sportswear, Swimwear

Nick Graham is creating a collection. The designer and founder of the Joe Boxer brand will introduce sportswear and swimwear under the Nick Graham label for spring 2020 at the Project show in Las Vegas next week. The sportswear collection is being called “Happy America” and is inspired by Fifties Miami Beach with a healthy dose of Graham’s signature ironic sense of humor. Rayon shirts, for example, are offered in pastel colors and feature prints such as a parrot smoking a pipe and wearing fedora and toucans with headphones and a flamingo with a large dollar sign. “They’re not so subtle, but then I’ve never been subtle,” the designer said with a laugh. He said he was inspired by a time when America “was simpler and not so complicated. I was looking at some imagery from that era, and the style seemed to match the optimism of the day. I wanted to try to capture that feeling.” The collection includes unstructured sport coats, slim five-pocket jeans and chinos in stretch twill and multicolor cotton polos. The swimwear is offered in a variety of conversational prints that coordinate with the rayon shirts to create a cabana set look. Printed baseball caps and fedoras with novelty headbands

Sixties Model and Muse Peggy Moffitt Venturing Into Licensing

Sixties-era model and muse Peggy Moffitt, known for her distinctive five-point Vidal Sassoon haircut, harlequin eye makeup and for her collaboration with the late L.A. designer Rudi Gernreich, is poised to become her own brand. Sage Licensing has revealed the development of a licensing program in fashion apparel and accessories based on the famed model, who made waves when she posed in Gernreich’s topless monokini in 1964. The deal is being spearheaded by the group’s president Bruce Giuliano, who has worked with Hello Kitty and Paul Frank, among other creative properties. A native of Los Angeles, Moffitt studied acting, which led to roles in “Blow-up” and other films, and dance, which influenced her taste in clothing and her balletic style of modeling — and caught the eye of Gernreich, known for his avant-garde, body-con style. Her late husband, photographer William Claxton, also contributed to her legacy with his iconic Sixties images of the model. Moffitt, 79, who lives in the Hollywood Hills, has been ill in recent months, and has not appeared publicly. The new brand-licensing program coincides with her archival images and clothing being showcased in the “Rudi Gernreich: Fearless Fashion” exhibition on view at L.A.’s Skirball Cultural Center.

Dyne Expands Into Eyewear, Working With Fila

Christopher Bevans continues to spread his wings.
The founder and designer of Dyne used his skills working with technical fabrics that he applied to interesting sports-inspired silhouettes as well as complementary products such as eyewear, socks and bags.

In his spring presentation in New York earlier this week, Bevans offered a tight collection of T-shirts, anoraks, track pants and sweats all updated through the use of creative fabrics.

Case in point was a technical T-shirt created through a sublimation technique with a graphic design that Bevans said was “inspired by geometry and motion” and a pattern informed by tropical birds. A hooded anorak and lightweight pants with a drawstring waist sported the same pattern.

Bevans also showcased a fabric innovation he discovered in Taiwan that used recycled paper for short-sleeve shirts. 

The spring collection, called “Colour Theory,” included baby French terry sweatshirts and a raincoat in a reflective camouflage pattern.

Bevans revealed he’s now working with Fila on a special capsule using wool — the designer is a Woolmark Award winner — and has also jumped into the eyewear market. His line of glasses had acetate or metal frames, some with snap-on lenses. The glasses will retail for $ 220 to $ 325 and will ship in a

Michael Kors Leans Into Chinese Valentine’s Day With New Ambassadors

It’s a tough act to follow a megastar like Yang Mi, the face of last year’s Michael Kors Chinese Valentine’s Day campaign. So for this year’s occasion, the brand tried a different tack — tapping not one but two famous faces: Gen Z actors Leo Wu and Lareina Song.
It’s not the only thing about the campaign the brand has expanded. While last year was the first time Michael Kors produced a special capsule collection for the occasion — consisting of two purses — this year’s collection has grown to 30 items.
With a campaign shot by photographer Kai Z. Feng, the collection features graffiti scribbles on products spanning ready-to-wear, small leather goods, footwear and jewelry.

Qixi falls on Aug. 7 but in the lead up to that, Michael Kors will be throwing an event at its Chengdu Taikoo Li store on July 26 with the two stars.
Wu, who is in the middle of shooting “Cross Fire,” said he will likely spend actual Qixi working but shared there were plenty sweet moments to savor in life regardless.
“My fans really did many romantic things for me,” Wu said. “For example, on my birthdays, they would record videos consisted of all the work I did

Bristol Studio Comes Into Its Own

LOS ANGELES — “It looks very basic,” Luke Tadashi said slowly, holding up a sample of a Bristol Studio black crewneck sweatshirt.
It does, but before he can get what sounds to be a qualifier in, the El Monte factory owner whose facility — where one might also see samples laying around from Vetements, Carbon38 or Soul Cycle — he’s standing beside cuts in. “It’s not simple. He’s lying,” she said playfully. She would know. Nearly everything Tadashi’s thrown at this factory has been far from typical, from the 25-oz. fabric so thick a hammer has to be used just to set the zipper, to the upward of 13 panel pieces for sweats (it’s normally seven, or four on cheaper versions).
“Nothing that we do is standard, Nothing we’re doing is based on existing fits. It has to be something from scratch,” Tadashi later said, while pulling a reversible hoodie over his head to model its fit from the factory floor. About a year-and-a-half ago, the brand stopped hiring fit models given Tadashi’s exacting standards for his label’s fits and proportions.
Today, Bristol Studio may perhaps be coming into its own. Aside from putting a halt on fit models, roughly a year ago

Dolce & Gabbana Jumps Back Into Lyst’s Top 20 Hottest Brands Ranking for Q1 

LONDON — The impact of Dolce & Gabbana’s disastrous trip to China last year could be on the wane, with the Italian brand making it back into Lyst’s Top 20 Hottest Brands ranking for the first quarter.
The global fashion search platform revealed Thursday that the brand moved up six places in its latest ranking for the first quarter of the year. Lyst’s previous index report, for the fourth quarter of 2018, saw the brand drop to number 21, following an intense backlash from celebrities, retailers and consumers after a series of cultural gaffes by the house.
In the first quarter, Dolce & Gabbana, which apologized for offending the Chinese, bounced up to 15.
Many predicted the scandal would impact Dolce & Gabbana’s sales, as retailers such as Lane Crawford, Luisa via Roma and Rinascente immediately dropped the brand from their racks and shelves. Based on the latest index, Lyst pointed out that moments of brand turbulence “don’t necessarily dent” consumer demand.
“While big brand moments certainly shape the data (we see spikes from product launches, marketing campaigns and viral social moments), these don’t always affect the baseline of global customer demand for that designer,” said Katy Lubin, vice president of communications at Lyst. “While it seems

Reformation Delves into Footwear

Los Angeles brand Reformation is now selling footwear with its latest category expansion.
The company on Thursday officially began selling shoes, offering its customers a collection of 11 styles with an opening price point of $ 128. The assortment includes strappy sandals, heels, flats and espadrilles, which the company said were inspired by the Nineties.
“The goal of Ref is to bring sustainable fashion to everyone in all different types of categories, and every year we try to move into one or two categories,” said founder and chief executive officer Yael Aflalo.  “We really felt that shoes was the right move. It’s the number one requested thing from our customers and it also gives us a really good opportunity to shine from a sustainability perspective.”
The footwear release is not a one-off, with the plan to build to monthly releases and then eventually follow a drop cadence in line with the apparel, which is refreshed weekly.

The men’s line launches with more than 20 stockkeeping units, priced from $ 75 to $ 300 and utilizing many of the same performance fabrics seen in the women’s line, such as lightweight scuba. The men’s collection takes on a streetwear-inspired aesthetic and a color scheme of navy and taupe.
The official launch is April 30 in 19 Equinox stores for a six-month exclusive, in addition to Koral’s online shop. The collection will broaden for fall with a larger stockkeeping unit count distributed to more retailers.
“I would love if men’s could be just as big as the women’s business one day,” chief marketing officer and cofounder Marcelo Kugel said. “I think we can get a stronghold in the market and that’s why Equinox wanted to be our main partner on this because they see the opportunity for growth and then we’ve also been approached by Peloton, Barry’s Boot Camp and Net-a-porter with the launch of fall.”

Men’s Brands Jump Into Sustainability Efforts

Like many things in men’s wear, it often takes a bit longer for a trend to take hold than it does in women’s wear. Sustainability has been no exception. But now, most men’s brands and retailers are all in.
While some men’s designers, such as Christopher Raeburn, were early adopters, others are just now jumping on board. According to Cara Smyth, vice president of Glasgow Caledonian New York College and founder of the Fair Fashion Center sustainability program, those in the outdoor industry were among the first to embrace the movement due to their ties to nature. But the movement has since spread to a variety of men’s wear brands.
“Many men’s brands are interested in sustainability as it provides operating efficiencies that reduce impacts and reflect the values of the brand to both consumers and even investors where applicable,” she said.
So whether it’s PVH’s goal to generate zero waste, or Perry Ellis’ new solar panel installation project at its distribution center in Seneca, S.C., companies big and small have gotten on board.
Here is a closer look at some of the brands leading the way in men’s wear.

Mytheresa Expands Into Men’s Wear, Taps Chris Kyvetos

LONDON – Munich-based retailer Mytheresa is adding men’s wear to its offer and bringing Sneakerboy founder Chris Kyvetos to be its new buying director of men’s wear.
Kyvetos, a serial entrepreneur who founded the Australian chain of concept showrooms selling high-end and mass market sneakers via iPad, will be tasked with building a new dedicated men’s wear team and developing the retailer’s market strategy for the category.

For Mytheresa, hiring Kyvetos and moving into men’s wear was the next step, following on from the strong growth of the company’s women’s wear business and expansion into kid’s wear last year. “Men’s wear will be a natural expansion for Mytheresa and represents a significant business opportunity going forward.

The Vampire’s Wife Turns Cult Following Into Global Retail Hit

LONDON — London-based label The Vampire’s Wife quietly came onto the scene four years ago, but quickly seduced women with its lavish fabrics, romantic prints and signature ruffles.
What started as an insiders’ secret — favored by British fashion editors, models and friends of the brand’s founder Susie Cave, who is a former model and the wife of musician Nick Cave — turned into global retail hit, with stockists including Matchesfashion.com, Browns, Dover Street Market and Moda Operandi.
Cave’s success recipe is simple: offering product that fits well and makes women feel good.
“There is certainly a community of women who are loyal to The Vampire’s Wife, but this is simply because the dresses just look beautiful when on — women respond to this,” Cave said. “The pieces are easy-to-wear but have a maximum impact and there’s a disruptive quality to them, a sort of seditiousness. They are simultaneously demure and outrageous, turning the wearer into a walking event.”
Despite the brand’s soaring popularity both at retail and on the red carpet — fans include everyone from Keira Knightley, to Dakota Johnson, Jennifer Aniston and Ruth Negga — Cave has been treading cautiously when it came to growing the brand’s offer.

Hong Kong Designers Channel Color, Art into London Collections

FASHION EXCHANGE: Hong Kong fashion has landed in London with local brands Loom Loop, House of V, Yeung Chin and Doris Kath presenting their fall collections as London Fashion Week kicked off.
The initiative, supported by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, spotlighted a diversity of styles and inspirations from the four brands.
Loom Loop’s designer Polly Ho served up a colorful mix of prints and fabrics to represent Hong Kong’s fusion of Eastern and Western cultures. Dubbed “Concrete Jungle,” the collection balanced solid colors with prints featuring floral and animal motifs for kimono dresses and other ensembles.
The standout look was a print-on-print number: Ho layered a long shirt with ruffles and dolman sleeves with a vest, leggings and gloves, in a color palette that ranged from forest green to bright red.
House of V channeled a spare, Scandinavian-style aesthetic, with designer Vickie Au drawing inspiration from Damien Hirst’s famous series of spot paintings. She placed colorful, round buttons on the cuffs of shirts and minimal outerwear, adding dimension to the clean silhouettes.
Yeung Chin went in a different direction from his fellow designers, opting for a darker palette. Themed “Utopia,” the lineup revisited military inspiration with boyish, asymmetric and oversized silhouettes.
The showstopper was an oversized

Undone Moves Into the U.S. Market

Undone, the customizable watch brand that’s based in Hong Kong, is focusing on the U.S.
Michael Young built a reputation in the watch industry by collecting vintage watches, supplying companies such as Hublot and Omega with parts, and customizing Rolexes for high-end brands. Because of the high price points on custom watches, which start at $ 20,000, Young thought there was space in the market for an affordable, well-made custom watch option and introduced Undone in 2014.
His relationships with suppliers and knowledge of the supply chain has allowed him to offer models that retail from $ 265 to $ 430. Having his own dial printers and in-house watchmakers has also helped. Customers are able to purchase a customizable watch from Undone’s e-commerce site to select their own dial, case, hands, strap and engraving on the back. Undone has also recently partnered with Peanuts on a capsule collection that offers more characters than usual because of its customization abilities.
“A lot of watch brands are starting to launch characters on special editions, but there is no flexibility,” Young said. “We think consumers should have a choice and be able to create something they love.”

Nana Judy Emerges on Fairfax Avenue as L.A. Comes Into Focus for Brand

LOS ANGELES — Nana Judy is the latest brand to set up shop on Fairfax Avenue, marking the brand’s entry into retail.
The company’s 2,650-square-foot store is next to Tyler the Creator’s Golf Wang shop. The space, which the company will officially ring in on its Oct. 25 grand opening, will also serve a dual purpose as the company’s U.S. headquarters and showroom.
“The brand’s been around for 11 years in Australia and we have a flagship in Melbourne, which does extremely well,” Nana Judy founder Glenn Coleman said of the thinking behind opening a Stateside store now. “We’ve been in the U.S. market for two years and the demand has been a natural progression and it happened organically through our consumers.”
The company’s had its eye on Fairfax Avenue for a few years now, Coleman said, jumping at the chance to sign a lease when space became available.
Coleman pointed to the street’s culture and the existing brands on Fairfax that made it a primary focus for Nana Judy’s first store.
The Fairfax flagship will carry in-store exclusives, including the Oct. 26 launch of a men’s and women’s collaboration with Disney’s “101 Dalmatians.” Disney has been on a tear of late with collaborations marking

Bonobos to Expand Into Big and Tall

Bonobos is now targeting the big guy.
The Walmart-owned men’s brand today will launch an extended sizes collection that will include everything from suits, dress shirts and neckwear to sport shirts and knitwear.
Brad Andrews, copresident, said expanding into extended sizing “is a natural extension for us. We’re a brand built on better-fitting clothes and we feel this is an underserved market.”
Extended sizing has long been a challenge for most traditional brick-and-mortar retailers since it requires an investment into inventory in a wide range of sizes that may not move quickly. The biggest player in the field is Destination XL, which has more than 340 retail stores and an e-commerce site that sells branded as well as private-label goods.
“The fact that we’re e-commerce gives us an advantage as we’re able to deliver a broader size range,” Andrews said.
A dedicated landing page for the offering will launch today where Bonobos will talk about the details of the collection. It will also be marketed in all stores and store windows as well as in a catalogue that will be mailed this week.
“We spent a lot of time on the details,” Andrews said. For instance, woven shirts have a lowered neck drop, a two-piece sleeve

Larry and Toby Milstein Expand ‘Millennial Pink Party’ Into Weekend Long Retreat

The second annual Millennial Pink Party takes to the Hamptons this weekend, and this year the concept has been expanded into a full weekend of events with the help of partners like BCBGeneration, Bloomingdale’s and The Class by Taryn Toomey.
Millennial Pink Party made its debut last year as the re-branded take on the Milstein family’s annual summer Hamptons bash. Real estate scions Larry and Toby Milstein embraced the rosy hue and moved the party to the Breakers in Montauk to lure the young Manhattan social crowd for the party, in partnership with the Human Rights Campaign.
After its success, the one-night event has grown into a weekend, which begins tonight with a private beachside dinner hosted by Whispering Angel. The guest list for Friday night is made up of the Millennial Pink Founders Collective, who are categorized as “a handpicked group of 25 VIP taste makers who will serve as social ambassadors for the Millennial Pink community and provide creative direction on the event.”
Come Saturday, celebrity workout favorite Taryn Toomey will host a session of her workout The Class for guests, followed by the official party at night and a brunch to close things out on Sunday.
The event last year raised more than $ 15,000 for

Changing Markets Foundation Drags Viscose Into Sustainability Spotlight

Fashion has a dirty secret and its name is viscose, according to a new report by Changing Markets Foundation, an organization that campaigns for better corporate practice in the clothing industry.
In its latest report, issued this week, the group outlined viscose’s damage to the eco-system, and the fashion industry’s failure to address the problem.
According to the report, the global viscose market is worth $ 12 billion dollars and is set to reach $ 15.9 billion by 2021.
Following investigations into viscose’s supply chain, Changing Markets Foundation found that factories, with the majority located in China, were dumping untreated wastewater into nearby bodies of water, while toxic runoff destroyed local agriculture.
As a result of the investigations, Changing Markets has released Roadmap, a set of guidelines for brands to clean up viscose’s damage. Seven retailers have endorsed the Roadmap, including Inditex, Asos, Marks & Spencer, H&M, Tesco, Esprit and C&A.
Campaign director Nusa Urbancic said while major high-street retailers who command a large share of the market are working toward sourcing responsible viscose, the industry still needs to address this key issue.
“It’s time for luxury brands, high-street retailers and online stores to wake up and ingrain responsible sourcing into their policies. It’s a shame that most brands have so

Mytheresa.com Delves Into Prada’s Archives for Latest Collaboration

ON FIRE: Mytheresa.com is further strengthening its ties with Prada, via the launch of an exclusive collaboration that’s set to drop on July 4.
This is the second time the Munich-based retailer has partnered with the Italian label, although this edition took a different approach. Instead of remaining in theme with the most recent collection, the retailer has delved into the Prada archives to revive some of its most recognizable prints.
The result is a 20-piece capsule that offers a more contemporary interpretation of Prada’s famous flame and banana prints from spring 2012.

The prints have been layered together onto a range of oversize sweatshirts, loose shirts and nylon totes. They also reference the streetwear direction of the label’s latest men’s wear outing.
“Our global customer loves to experiment with prints and bright colors, so we wanted to offer them something completely edgy,” said Tiffany Hsu, fashion and buying director at Mytheresa.com.
The range also includes accessories such as Nineties-inspired bucket hats and the brand’s famous flame wedge sandals, reworked in white and neon pink.

Vin + Omi, London College of Fashion Spin Plastic Bottles into Clothes

ALL BOTTLED UP: Vin + Omi, the London-based label whose conceptual designs straddle luxury and sustainability, has partnered with London College of Fashion to launch Bin 2 Body, an initiative that will collect plastic bottles from the shows and turn them into fashion.
“We’re going to turn all of the plastic bottles into fabric and then, in August, we’re going to turn them into accessories. Then we’re going to partner up with a store and all the proceeds will go to a London salvage group,” said Omi.
Students from the college have designed bespoke bins that have been placed at the London Fashion Week Men’s show venues to collect used water bottles. The bins will be emptied daily and sent to processing labs that will transform the bottles into textiles with low microfiber release.
Vin + Omi’s designs will be showcased in September at London Fashion Week.
The Bin 2 Body scheme is part of a larger initiative at London College that began 10 years ago when the school launched a new M.A. course that put sustainability at the heart of the curriculum. London College of Fashion has since changed its curriculum across all courses to include elements of social responsibility and sustainability.

John Cena and Nikki Bella Settle into Their New Home Before Ending Engagement

John Cena is showing off his goofy side.

In a new clip from the season 3 premiere of Total Bellas, Cena gets overly excited when a new rug gets delivered to the house he shares with then-finance Nikki Bella.

When Bella doesn’t alert Cena that the rug has arrived, he jokingly warns Bella not to mess with the “rug man.”

“I’ve been waiting all day like a dog with a bone,” he says. “I’m going to get all fist-deep in some rug.”

The pro-wrestler then goes into the other room to unpack the rug, which only makes him more excited.

“Nicole! How could you not have told me about this? This is a major thing that has happened today,” he yells across the house.

“Are you still doing the rug?” Bella, who is hanging out with her brother and mom in the living room responds.

“Never, ever question the rug man,” Cena replies.

In the new season, Bella, 34, and Cena, 40, move to San Diego together. But despite their new home, the couple spent long periods of time apart due to their busy schedules. Bella also opened up about the loneliness she felt in her relationship.

“What’s hard at times that people don’t realize about my relationship is I’m alone a lot,” Bella said during an interview segment on the show. “I’m alone in these big, beautiful homes.”

“Honestly, John and I have shared our bed together maybe 30 days total, out of six months,” she continued.

Bella called off her engagement to Cena three weeks before they were meant to walk down the aisle. Sources previously told PEOPLE that her decision to break up was due to their differing stances on marriage and having kids.

Though the pair has ended their romance, both Cena and Bella have acknowledged that they would like to one day get back together.

“John is such an amazing man. He really is the love of my life,” Bella told Entertainment Tonight at NBCUniversal’s Upfront Presentation in New York City on Monday.

“I truly hope one day that we can work it out and get back together,” she admitted. “I think there is hope.”

Total Divas returns this fall, and season 3 of Total Bellas premieres May 20 at 9 p.m. ET, both on E!

Meghan King Edmonds Is ‘Getting Miserable’ 33 Weeks into Pregnancy with Twins

Meghan King Edmonds is feeling the strain of carrying twins.

The pregnant Real Housewives of Orange County star, who is expecting twin boys with husband Jim Edmonds, is 33 weeks pregnant and officially in the discomfort stage.

“I’m getting miserable,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively, laughing. “I feel like the babies are like, in my ears. And most definitely in my lungs. I am really struggling with breathing. You can really tell in my Instagram Stories. I’ll listen to them back and I’m breathing so heavily just doing nothing. Plus, I can’t feel my legs. And bending over is, like, a thing in the past.”

“I’m so ridiculously pregnant, I can hardly move off the couch,” she adds. “We just had a cleaning lady come today — I don’t even know how she did, because I’m too tired to look. That’s where I’m at.”

Making matters even harder is that Meghan has 1½-year-old daughter Aspen moving around.

“I have a nanny and she’s been so good — and Jimmy’s been so helpful too — but waking up with Aspen in the morning, that’s even hard,” Meghan, 33, explains. “I can get her out of the crib and stuff, but going up and down my stairs is tough. I want her to be able to have fun and go to the park, but I can’t walk around the park anymore. It makes me sad. It’s a hard place to be.”

Luckily, Meghan’s situation is temporary. While 40 weeks is a full-term for a single baby, twins are considered full-term at 37 weeks, with the average twin pregnancy lasting 36 weeks.

“I just left the doctor and basically, it could be any day,” Meghan says. “Ideally I’d like to make it to 34, 35. They’ll be fine if I gave birth right now. They might have to spend some extra time in the hospital, but they’ll be fine.”

With her boys on the way any day now, it’s no surprise that Meghan plans to take it easy on Mother’s Day.

“My mom just invited us to go over to her house for breakfast,” she says. “My step-son has sporting games all day long on Mother’s Day. I’m just hoping I have babies cooking inside me more than anything. The longer they’re in there, the better!”

It’s a far different day from last year, Meghan’s first Mother’s Day. Having not yet moved to St. Louis — where they live close to Jim’s two stepchildren, ages 9 and 12 — full-time, Jim joined Meghan in California, taking her out to “a great dinner” and buying her a “fabulous present.”

Asked if Jim had planned anything special this year, Meghan wasn’t sure. “My husband, he didn’t even remember it was Mother’s Day until a few days ago. Now that he’s reminded, he may have something up his sleeve!” she says.

Not matter what he does, Meghan — who announced on her blog in late November that she and Jim, 47, were expecting sons after undergoing in vitro fertilization again — says that motherhood has been present enough. 

“Everything has become so fulfilling,” she says. “Jimmy and I were just talking about the fact that we’ve forgotten what life is like before Aspen existed. It’s been a complete shift in my lifestyle. My life is just about my baby now. What did we do? We don’t remember. It’s like nothing matters anymore except what she’s doing and what we’re going to do with her. That’s been crazy and amazing.”

A.F. Vandevorst Reimagines Selfridges’ Corner Shop Into a Hospital Ward

RETHINKING RETAIL: As Selfridges continues to ponder the meaning of luxury in today’s digital world, it has tapped A.F. Vandevorst to offer its own interpretation.
As part of the retailer’s ongoing “Anatomy of Luxury” project, the Belgian label will be taking over the Corner Shop — a concept space located at the store’s ground floor accessories hall — for a one-week residency. As part of the pop-up, An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx have re-created the scene of their famous spring 1999 show, where models stretched out on midcentury hospital beds before hitting the catwalk.
“Since the beginning, the hospital and the red cross were significant for our identity. When Filip and I met each other at the fashion academy of Antwerp, we discovered that we both collected hospital furniture and based on our common passion we created the A.F. Vandevorst universe,” Vandevorst said. “It was an obvious choice to show a selection of our universe for this project.”
More than 13 hospital beds have been lined up across the corner shop, which features floor-to-ceiling windows and functions more as a gallery than a retail space. Archive pieces from the spring 1999 show are laid out on each bed, while tables filled with flowers and

Hermès Converts N.Y. Men’s Store Into Record Shop

NEW YORK — Hermès has gotten the memo.
The French luxury brand has taken the movement toward experiential retailing to the next level, completely transforming its men’s store here into a vinyl record store for 10 days.
On Thursday night, the Madison Avenue emporium debuted Silk Mix, an art installation centered around music that has already been showcased in Madrid and Rome and now makes its way into the U.S.
“It’s all about silk and music,” said Robert Chavez, chief executive officer of Hermès. The concept was the brainchild of Véronique Nichanian, artistic director of Hermès men’s wear, and Christophe Goineau, creative director of men’s silk. They worked with Thierry Planelle, who has curated music for the company’s men’s shows for the last 15 years, to bring the idea to life.
The main floor was reworked to replicate an old-fashioned record store with bins of albums on display and a bank of turntables to give them a spin. But these albums had an Hermès twist: each of the covers sported a different silk design from the men’s assortment. “There are 225 styles and 53 different patterns,” Chavez said. “And you can pick your favorite and then play it.”

The album covers were all created from
