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,

James Whiteside Takes the Heat at Thom Browne

FLASH DANCE: James Whiteside certainly loves a challenge: The principal dancer at the American Ballet Theater arrived in Paris at 6 a.m. on Saturday ahead of his smashing performance on Thom Browne’s men’s runway. As soon as the show ended he was headed back to New York for rehearsals for his day job: On Tuesday, he’ll be performing as Siegfried in Swan Lake. He called the Browne gig “an incredible opportunity” beyond what he’d ever dreamt of doing.

On top of the jet lag, he had to deal with the oppressive heat at the show, which took place under a big glass ceiling inside the Beaux-Arts. The temperature did not weigh on him though. “As a dancer I like to be hot — it’s good for the muscles,” he said.

Rimowa Taps LeBron James for Latest Campaign

Rimowa is issuing the second iteration of its “Never Still” advertising campaign, again featuring a diverse cast of globe-trotting characters.
NBA all-star forward LeBron James, Dior Homme artistic director Kim Jones and Chinese master pianist Yuja Wang were shot traveling between four countries. Each was documented by a different director, tasked with creating content that will appear in digital ads and outdoor campaigns.
Rimowa chief executive officer Alexandre Arnault said of the campaign’s second wave: “I think for a brand to really make their messages heard, there needs to be time. Nike didn’t just come up with ‘Just Do It’ only once, they continue using it today. Every day we want people to see what we stand for and keep surprising people.”
The executive says that featuring a diverse cast, “is very important to us for sure. We try to have men, women, young, old, black, white Asian from different industries — music, fashion, sports, food, whatever. We want to be as inclusive as we can — it’s another proof of authenticity to our client, all continents, genders, everything.”

Fashion Group International Names James D’Adamo Chairman of the Board

GOING UP: Two months after the death of the Fashion Group International’s longtime leader Margaret Hayes, the organization has tapped James D’Adamo as chairman of the board.
D’Adamo, who lives in New York and was raised in Canada, continues to serve as group advertising director at Hearst, a post he has held for 14 years. He is not a newcomer to FGI, having first met the late Hayes at the group’s environment summit in 1990. D’Adamo has served on FGI’s board since 2009 and he has been a member of the organization since 2001. Before her death in late February, Hayes, FGI’s former president and chief executive officer, championed D’Adamo to succeed her as chairman, according to a spokeswoman for FGI.
D’Adamo takes over responsibilities handled by Donald Loftus. FGI’s veteran director, who had a distinguished career in retail and the cosmetics industry and retired from that sector to pursue his first passion as a playwright, librettist and lyricist. He will retain the title of chairman emeritus for FGI.
D’Adamo’s fashion and publishing ties will no doubt work to his advantage with his new gig at FGI. “Margaret took FGI to great heights and gave her heart and soul to the organization. We are

Kristen Doute’s James Mae Gets Green

LOS ANGELES — James Mae, the rock-inspired line started by “Vanderpump Rules” cast member Kristen Doute, is taking new steps toward sustainability.
Doute’s line for spring includes some pieces made of either recycled fabrics or fabrics made from recycled water bottles. The move comes with the company’s shift to relocate manufacturing for its T-shirts and sweatshirts from overseas to downtown Los Angeles, with the line likely to continue getting greener as time goes on its cofounders say.
“Ideally, I think that is the goal to go completely sustainable,” said cofounder and creative partner Magen Mattox. “Right now, because we’re a brand new brand — we launched last June — we’re just trying to do it in the best way possible that we can manage.”
James Mae — named after Doute’s niece and nephew — launched as a direct-to-consumer brand with a foundation built on rock-inspired T-shirts. It’s now in talks with retailers. The company is likely to enter into wholesale around holiday, with the goal of distributing the brand through a combination of majors and boutiques.
The line includes tanks and T-shirts ranging from $ 36 to $ 45 and sweatshirts in the range of $ 55 to $ 65.

MEN’S FORUM: The Whitaker Group’s James Whitner Relies on Instinct and Close Consumer Connections to Stay Ahead

For The Whitaker Group’s founder James Whitner, being the consumer is essential to knowing the consumer.
With an assortment of stores via his company’s four retail entities — Social Status, A.P.B., Prosper and A Ma Maniére — Whitner emphasized the importance of being submerged with the people you are trying to connect with. He asked, “Are you focused on the consumer? Do you know who the consumer is and why? Most people don’t. You’re casting a wide net in men’s wear…I’m the guy. I’m the guy who’s buying the stuff and wearing the stuff.”
Aside from anticipating what his shoppers want, Whitner spoke of how he tries to design spaces that they will emotionally respond to. “I’m always trying to re-create the places and spaces I’ve been in. I feel like I have a romantic affair with the consumer in the process. Can someone cue the music? [Romantic tunes follow.] When I walk into a store, this is how I feel. I’m being romanced by the romance,” he said.
Referring to outdated business practices that can’t keep up with quick fire social media and fashion’s rapid speed of change, Whitner said, “You’ve got to set your businesses up to move like we move.

Richard James Opens First U.S. Store on Park Avenue

NEW YORK — It took over a quarter century — and a new majority owner from America — but Savile Row tailor Richard James has finally opened his first store in the U.S.
The 2,260-square-foot boutique on the corner of 57th Street and Park Avenue is only the third store for the London-based brand, which was founded by James and Sean Dixon 26 years ago. In March 2017, Dixon inked a deal to sell a majority stake in the business to one of its longtime customers, Charles S. Cohen, a billionaire real estate mogul based in New York. Dixon, who retains a minority interest in the company, had been searching for an investor to take the business to the next level and help it expand internationally. James no longer has any financial stake in the brand.
“This is our first American store,” said Dixon, whose title is managing director. “Our plan has always been to open in the States, and New York is the obvious choice.” He added that the company had been searching for a long time for the “right opportunity and time,” and Cohen’s investment — and the fact that he owns the retail component of the pre-war building — was

2 More Suspicious Packages Found in Florida and N.Y.C. Addressed to Corey Booker, James Clapper

Following a series of pipe bombs sent in the mail to various influential Democrats over the course of this week, two more suspicious packages were discovered on Friday morning.

The FBI confirmed one of them was similar in appearance to those previously sent and was addressed to Democratic New Jersey Sen. Corey Booker. It was intercepted in Florida.

The other, the NYPD tells PEOPLE, was discovered at post office facility at 322 W. 52nd street in New York City. The area has since been closed down to vehicle and pedestrian traffic. CNN reports that it was addressed to James Clapper at the news network’s office, the former director of national intelligence, who left the role in 2017.

Clapper called into CNN after the news broke, saying, “My wife and I are away from home right now. And our neighbors have been retrieving our mail. Been very concerned about them. So in one sense, it’s kind of a relief, but it’s not a surprise.”

He continued, “This is definitely domestic terrorism. No question about it in my mind.”

On Wednesday afternoon, explosive devices were intercepted before reaching former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder. A device addressed to former CIA chief John Brennan was delivered to CNN’s New York headquarters and prompted an evacuation. Officials said the devices addressed to Obama, Clinton and CNN appear to have been sent by the same person, The Washington Post reported.

Days earlier, an explosive device was found in the mailbox of liberal philanthropist George Soros.

California Rep. Maxine Waters and actor Robert De Niro were also sent packages on Wednesday and Thursday respectively, which brings the total to at least 12.

After signing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a one-year, $ 12 million deal (a sensible move), the Lakers continued by signing Lance Stephenson, one of James' biggest rivals, to a one-year, $ 4.5 million contract. They then added center JaVale McGee to a one-year, minimum deal. On Monday, the Lakers renounced their rights to free agent big man Julius Randle, a young, talented player with big potential, to sign 32-year-old point guard Rajon Rondo to a one-year, $ 9 million deal.

James Harden, P.J. Tucker Take in Neil Barrett Show

JUMPING IN: James Harden and P.J. Tucker of the Houston Rockets flew into Milan Friday night and turned up the next afternoon in the front row of Neil Barrett’s show at the designer’s headquarters — where they were quickly surrounded by top men’s editors starry-eyed at meeting the sports celebrities and taking selfies with them.

P.J. Tucker and James Harden 

Harden is a longtime fan of Barrett’s and wears his designs often — “I have more of his clothes in my closet than I realized,” Harden said, revealing he and Barrett are in talks about a potential collaboration, although he declined to reveal details. During the show he seemed particularly excited by Barrett’s sneaker designs, nudging Tucker several times to point at specific styles.
The basketball superstar said he hoped to spend the next day doing some sightseeing in Milan before he headed to Paris for the men’s shows there. He plans to attend Virgil Abloh’s Off-White show as well as Abloh’s debut as men’s artistic director at “Louis,” i.e., Louis Vuitton. “I’m excited to see that,” Harden said.

Draper James and Rockets of Awesome Collaborate for Children’s Wear With Help From SCAD Students

YOUNG ENOUGH: For its Mommy & Me capsule collection, Reese Witherspoon’s lifestyle brand Draper James tapped Rockets of Awesome to produce it and Savannah College of Art and Design students to help design it.
The SCAD students pitched in on what is the Nashville-based brand’s first venture into children’s apparel. Like the Reese Witherspoon-founded brand’s women’s collection, the styles for the junior set is southernlike in that there are plenty of stripes and true blue styles. SCAD students in the Collaborative Learning Center — fashion, accessory design, graphic design, fashion marketing and management, and fibers — helped design the collection over the course of a semester. That experience included a few classes led by Draper James’ team. Their designs were featured in the university’s annual fashion show SCAD FASHWKND.
The confirmation that “Legally Blonde 3” is in the works wasn’t the only celebratory news that Witherspoon had to share in the past few days with her 13 million Instagram followers.

"There's this thing there with he and LeBron that's a little weird," Thompson said. According to Thompson, James and Curry were close from Curry's days at Davidson to his early years in the league.

James Franco Is Calling Exes, Plans to Attend SAG Awards in Wake of Accusations

James Franco is digging into his past in the wake of allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior.

“James has been reaching out to former girlfriends for the past month asking about his behavior,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He’s known this was coming and was trying to get ahead of the story.”

Following news of the allegations, Franco, 39, took a step back from the spotlight — even skipping the Critics Choice Awards last week where he won the Best Actor honor for his role in The Disaster Artist.

But despite being a no-show, Franco is still set to attend the Screen Actors Guild Awards this weekend, where he is nominated for Best Actor.

“There is no reason to believe that he won’t be there,” says a source close to Franco.

During a recent appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the actor addressed the sexual harassment allegations issued by a number of women on Twitter after wearing a Time’s Up pin at the Golden Globe Awards.

“There are people that need to be heard,” the actor told Meyers. “I have my own side of this story, but I believe in these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out enough that I will hold back things that I could say, just because I believe in it that much,” he said. “So if I have to take a knock because I’m not going to try and actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much.”

In an article published in the Los Angeles Times on Jan. 11, five women accused the actor of abusing his power as an acting teacher and mentor in a sexually exploitative manner. In it, two students claimed the actor would often become angry on set when they would refuse to film topless while another former acting student at the film school Franco founded said he once removed safety guards while filming an oral sex scene on the set of the 2015 film The Long Home.

Additionally, actress Violet Paley recounted her previous social media claims that Franco exposed himself and tried to pressure her into oral sex. Though she said they had a consensual relationship, Paley said: “that time wasn’t consensual.” She also alleged that he told her friend to meet him in a hotel when the friend was 17.

Franco’s attorney, Michael Plonsker, denied each of the women’s allegations, and cited Franco’s comments on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday as his formal denial.

“Look, in my life I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I have done,” Franco told Colbert. “I have to do that to maintain my well being. The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate. But I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long. So I don’t want to shut them down in any way.”

James Corden Reveals His ‘Quite Terrifying’ Recurring Nightmare

 

Is James Corden afraid of the ocean? That or his sleeping subconscious might be trying to tell him something.

The Emmy-nominated Late Late Show host joined PEOPLE’s Editor-in-Chief Jess Cagle in the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview (streaming now on the People/Entertainment Weekly Network) and revealed a few deep dark secrets — namely that he has a scary, chronic nightmare.

“My recurring nightmare is that I’m in the middle of the ocean, and no one knows I’m there, and I don’t know what to do,” Corden said. “We’re joking about it now, but it genuinely is quite terrifying.”

Cagle also asked Corden about the one thing he wishes he could do on TV, the celebrity he’d most like to kiss and what keeps him up at night.

“The one thing that I wish I was allowed to do on television but I’m not is call in sick with no repercussions,” Corden said. “If I had to kiss one celebrity right now, it would be John Mayer because, you know, it just sounds like it’s fantastic.”

And while Corden admitted that his kids (daughter Carey, 2½, and son Max McCartney, 6) keep him up at night, overall his life is good — especially since his wife Julia is expecting their third child.

“If life’s not good right now, how’s it ever going to get better than this?” he said. “It’s amazing.”

James Corden Sends 297 Copies Of ‘Philadelphia’ To Donald Trump

James Corden blasted President Donald Trump Tuesday for ignoring the HIV/AIDS crisis ―but he’s come up with a humorous solution to educate him.

Following a report that six members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS resigned in protest against Trump’s lack of policies to fight the epidemic, Corden urged Trump to readjust his attitude.

Corden became serious as he pointed out that nearly 60 percent of the more than 1.1 million people in the U.S. who live with HIV and AIDS are unable to access lifesaving medications, and questioned whether the president cared.

Then “The Late Late Show” host changed gears, surmising that this was perhaps because Trump has never seen the acclaimed 1993 AIDS drama “Philadelphia” starring Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington. The film enlightened Corden, and he thinks it could have the same effect on the president.

So Corden’s staff, at first rebuffed by the White House, sent 297 copies of “Philadelphia” to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago in Florida.

“We hope that if Trump watches ‘Philadelphia,’ he’ll understand two things: One, Tom Hanks definitely deserved that Oscar,” Corden said. “And number two, we hope that he’ll realize that HIV and AIDS is something that you or any president of the United States ― or any world leader for that matter ― can never afford to ignore.”

Watch the segment above and hope that Trump takes the time to watch this memorable character below.

James Corden Roasts David Beckham For Matching Outfits With Posh

We’ve all committed a few fashion faux pas we’d rather not recall. But James Corden isn’t letting David Beckham forget his for a second. 

On his show this week, the comedian busted out a throwback photo series of David and his wife Victoria Beckham in coordinating outfits, in anticipation of the couple’s 18th wedding anniversary next month.

Corden was a merciless fashion cop, poking fun at the matching purple ensembles the couple wore on their wedding day in 1999.

He also had choice words for some some revealing pants-and-top combos they sported on the red carpet two years later.

Beckham refused to apologize for the duo’s outfits of yore.

“I’m not saying I regret them because at the time, it felt right,” he told Corden. “Now, I’m not so sure.”

See some of the pair’s highlights ― or are they lowlights? ― below and in the video above.

James Franco Talks ‘Sleazy New York’ at Coach Breakfast

James Franco made his first appearance as the face of Coach’s forthcoming men’s fragrance wearing a navy intarsia sweater with a Space Shuttle motif — and talking about the “sleazy New York of the Seventies” and its then “burgeoning porn industry.”
The actor, whose face broke into a big smile the minute he addressed a press gathering on Monday morning in Manhattan, was referring to the yet-to-be-released HBO series “The Deuce,” in which he plays twins involved in that industry.
Coach unveiled a short commercial and print ad lensed by Steven Meisel, picturing Franco leaning against a vintage car with the Manhattan skyline in the background.
“The shoot was interesting,” Franco demurred, before sitting down to a three-course breakfast perfumed with cardamom, kumquat and geranium, which are among notes in the scent, produced under license by Inter Parfums SA.
The event fell on a special day for Victor Luis, chief executive officer of Coach Inc. “Today is my 11th anniversary at Coach,” he told the crowd, introducing Joshua Schulman, president and chief executive officer of the Coach brand, who started work that very morning and was toting a seating plan for the brand’s vast offices in a futuristic office tower at Hudson Yards.

The Third James Bond, Roger Moore Has Died

Sir Roger Moore, the actor most famous for being the third person to play James Bond in the mainline film series, has died at 89.

Announced by his children on Twitter, Moore passed away after a “short but brave battle with cancer”.

Moore played the world’s most famous spy in seven films, including Live and Let Die and The Man With the Golden Gun. He brought the most outright humour to the Bond series of any of the mainline actors, and remains a favourite of many for that reason.

James Corden Delivers Emotional Tribute To The ‘Manchester I Know’

James Corden returned to the “Late Late Show” set on Monday evening to deliver a special message in response to the attack in Manchester at an Ariana Grande concert.  

Speaking to the camera on a quiet, empty set, Corden seemed to be on the verge of tears as he acknowledged the victims. 

“It shocks me every time we hear this sort of news that attacks like this can happen, but especially when there will be so many children at this concert tonight,” he said.

An Englishman, Corden spoke about many of the good things that came out of Manchester, from its musicians to its sports to its food, and mentioned that it was also the birthplace of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst.

“But when I think of Manchester, the place that I know, I think of the spirit of the people there. And I’m telling you, a more tight-knit group of people you will be hard-pressed to find. Strong, proud, caring people with community at its core. And if it was even possible, the spirit of the people of Manchester will grow even stronger this evening.”

Royal Kiss-Off! Do Pippa and James or Kate and Will Have the More Swoon-Worthy Lip Lock?

You may now kiss the bride!

Newlyweds Pippa Middleton and James Matthews shared a sweet kiss while holding hands outside St. Mark’s Church, just moments after tying the knot in a private wedding ceremony.

The couple’s touching moment was reminiscent of Prince William and Princess Kate’s memorable kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after they said their “I dos” at Westminster Abbey. They also snuck in a second smooch to the delight of the crowds below them!

Middleton and Matthews were all smiles as they left the church with their adorable bridal party surrounding them.

Following the service, the bridal party departed to Englefield House for a small reception, which will be followed by a lavish party later this evening at the home of Carole and Michael Middleton in Bucklebury.
