Jeffrey Scores With Dior Men Pop-up in Atlanta

Kim Jones‘ arrival in March as artistic director of ready-to-wear and accessories at Dior Men energized the luxury brand, just as Super Bowl LIII has energized the city of Atlanta. Jeffrey Kalinsky, founder and president of Jeffrey, on Thursday night capitalized on the fan-favorite brand with a Dior Men pop-up shop at his inaugural store in Atlanta.
“We’re feting Kim’s first collection,” Kalinsky said, citing guests such as Future, Young Thug, Gunna, SouthSide, Wheezy, Phaedra Parks, Lil Van, Bernice Burgos, Brielle and Ariana Biermann. “He’s a major talent and he’s infused so much energy into Dior Men. I don’t know how many hundreds of people were in the store last night. By 7 p.m. we were jamming. Everybody was talking about the traffic for private planes. There wasn’t a place to park.
“It’s just amazing the commerce around the Super Bowl,” Kalinsky said from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, where he was waiting for a flight to Miami, admitting that he may skip the Super Bowl. “It’s been wonderful for fashion in Atlanta. The last time the Super Bowl was in Atlanta 19 years ago and we got wonderful customers from all over the country.”
Kalinsky said that dynamic is magnified today because “you have all the

Saks Scores Retail Exclusive of Kim Jones’ Dior Men’s Collection

Saks Fifth Avenue has managed to snag the early launch of the much-coveted debut collection of Kim Jones for Dior Men.
Although the line will be offered at other stores in early February — including in an installation with some exclusive pieces at Nordstrom Men in New York and Seattle — Saks has secured the early retail exclusive for the line. The line has already launched at Dior’s stores, including the eight in the U.S. that carry men’s wear.
Saks will be carrying the full collection of ready-to-wear, sneakers and accessories embellished with the brand’s signature bee logo that has been reimagined by street artist KAWS.
The summer collection will be available at Saks’ New York, Beverly Hills, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Houston and Toronto stores on Jan. 16, two weeks ahead of other retailers. It will not be available online at Saks but is being sold on the Dior e-commerce site.
Product pricing will range from $ 490 for a KAWS bee T-shirt to $ 5,900 for a crystal KAWS bee denim jacket.

Document Journal Scores Hedi Slimane’s First Celine Cover

HEDI FIRST: While a divisive figure, Hedi Slimane is one of the biggest newsmakers in fashion right now. Getting the global exclusive on a cover for his first Celine collection, shot by Slimane himself, would be a boon for any publication. The one that made it happen, less than three weeks after Slimane’s debut Celine show, is Document Journal.
Slimane was given pure creative control over a cover — one of eight different covers — for the biannual publication’s 13th edition, which is on newsstands today. The day after the show in Paris, the designer photographed Hannah Motler in one of the collection’s many veiled cocktail hats for a close-up, black-and-white profile shot. It’s a stand-alone cover with no additional editorial, photographic or written content to accompany it inside the issue.
“Hedi’s been a longtime contributor to Document,” said Nick Vogelson, the publication’s editor in chief. “It’s something we’ve been discussing for a very long time to do his first cover and we were very fortunate to have him shoot it…Typically when we work with our contributors we give them a great deal of creativity in terms of what they want to execute so he had carte blanche for this.”
Such indulgent creative terms

Broadway Scores at the Oscars


This year’s Academy Awards nominations honor many familiar names from the New York stage

By Christopher Caggiano, ZEALnyc Contributing Writer, February 7, 2017

Since the advent of moving pictures, there’s been a considerable amount of traffic back and forth between New York theater and Hollywood movies. That tradition continues to this day, as evidenced by the recently announced nominations for the 89th Academy Awards.

It’s no surprise that Broadway and Off-Broadway frequently feature some of the best performers and writers of any given age. And over the years, many artists have found success in both the theatrical and cinematic spheres. But theater isn’t as close to the center of American culture as it has been in the past. So, it’s hard not to think about this year’s nominations as a validation of the great work that theater folk do, after so many years of feeling culturally marginalized.

Here’s a sampling of this year’s Oscar nominees with Broadway and Off-Broadway ties.

The big story at this year’s Oscar nominations was the romantic musical comedy La La Land, which received a record-tying 14 nominations, including one for best picture. It used to be that a year couldn’t go by without a musical garnering an Oscar nod, but movie musicals sort of disappeared for about 30 years. Then, when Chicago snagged the Best Picture Oscar in 2002, suddenly film musicals were back in vogue.

La La Land seems even more remarkable, as it was written directly for the screen, as opposed to adapted from a pre-existing Broadway musical. This provided Broadway’s rising stars, composer/lyricists, Benj Hasek and Justin Paul, with the opportunity to snag two Oscar nods for writing the lyrics (to music by Justin Hurwitz) for the songs “Audition (‘The Fools Who Dream’)” and “City of Stars.” Pasek and Paul are also currently represented on Broadway by the hottest ticket of the season so far, the heartrending Dear Evan Hansen.

Also from La La Land, Emma Stone garnered a nomination for Best Actress. Stone made her Broadway debut in the 2014 revival (of the 1998 revival) of Cabaret, receiving very strong notices in the process.

For theater fans, one of the biggest stories to emerge from this year’s Oscar nods is the fact that wonder boy Lin-Manuel Miranda has a chance to earn that most coveted of distinctions, the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony). Miranda has won numerous Tonys, most notably for the smash hit Hamilton. He also won Grammys for the cast recordings of both Hamilton and In the Heights. He even snagged an Emmy writing music and lyrics for the 67th Annual Tony Awards. All that leaves is the Oscar, and Miranda seems a very strong contender indeed for his song “How Far I’ll Go,” from the Disney hit, Moana.

One major point of theatrical interest this year is the film adaptation of August Wilson’s Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning Fences. Even though Wilson passed away in 2005, he nonetheless received an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. Wilson is enjoying a good deal of interest this year, as his 1982 play Jitney is currently making its first Broadway appearance. Also from Fences, we have Oscar nods for Best Actor for Denzel Washington, who was last on Broadway in Raisin in the Sun, 2014, as well as Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Viola Davis, two-time Tony winner for King Hedley II and the 2010 revival of Fences.

Another esteemed playwright who received a lot of Oscar love this year was Kenneth Lonergan, who received Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay nominations for his Manchester by the Sea. Lonergan was recently featured on Broadway in a revival of his 1996 play, This Is Our Youth. Recognized for their acting in Manchester By the Sea were Michelle Williams, who was Tony nominated for her remarkable turn in the harrowing Blackbird in 2016, and Lucas Hedges, who is currently appearing in the MCC Theater production of Anna Jordan’s Yen.

Other Oscar-nominated actors with a theater pedigree include Michael Shannon for Best Actor in a Supporting role in Nocturnal Animals. Shannon was a Tony nominee last season for his crackling performance in the smashing Broadway revival of Long Day’s Journey Into Night. Andrew Garfield, a Best Actor nominee for Hacksaw Ridge, was seen on Broadway in the 2012 revival of Death of a Salesman.

In the not-so-recently-on-Broadway department, we have Natalie Portman, Best Actress nominee for Jackie, who made what is so far her only appearance on Broadway in the 1998 revival of The Diary of Anne Frank. Nicole Kidman, who has also only graced Broadway once, also in 1998 in The Blue Room, is likewise nominated this year as Best Actress for Lion.

And finally, perennial Oscar nominee Meryl Streep picked up a record-breaking 20th nomination this year for Florence Foster Jenkins. Although La Streep is rightly considered one of the best, if not the best, actor currently living, it’s a bit surprising that she hasn’t appeared on Broadway since 1977 in Happy End. (She has, however, appeared in a number of Off-Broadway productions, including Mother Courage and Her Children as part of The Public Theater’s free series of productions in Central Park.) I know I’m not the only one hoping that she deigns to grace Broadway with her presence again sometime very soon.

8 Movie Scores We’ll Still Listen To In 2015

For people who love movie scores — these are real people, we assure you — last year was a peak time. From Steven Price’s Oscar-winning “Gravity” score to smaller ones from Joel P. West (“Short Term 12”) and Graham Reynolds (“Before Midnight”), 2013’s movie scores had a cue for every mood.

Not so this year. The most memorable moments in “Wild,” “Boyhood,” “Whiplash,” “Obvious Child,” “Selma,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “The Fault in Our Stars,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “The LEGO Movie,” “The Interview” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,” to name a few, came accompanied with either an existing track or original song (everything is awesome, you crazy “LEGO Movie”). Which is great for people who also love movie soundtracks — guilty! — but less so for score fans. Sure, Antonio Sanchez’s “Birdman” score is fantastic within the framework of the film, but would anyone want to listen to it during a random Tuesday commute?

With that in mind, here are the eight movie scores released this year that profile as having longevity — aka each will have a permanent home on our HuffPost Entertainment Spotify playlist of movie scores.

Alexandre Desplat, “Godzilla”

No one had a better year than Alexandre Desplat, who wrote three of the year’s most memorable scores (and also the ones for “The Monuments Men” and “Unbroken”). His “Godzilla” theme was so damn loud that even the title has an exclamation mark. Let them fight.

Alexandre Desplat, “The Imitation Game”

Desplat’s score for “The Imitation Game” isn’t necessarily deep, but the main theme is as Oscar-friendly as the film itself. It’s the type of track you’d expect to hear play as Benedict Cumberbatch walks up to accept his Academy Award.

Alexandre Desplat, “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

There’s that news van again. Desplat’s score for Wes Anderson’s latest film is gave millennials their very own “Third Man” theme.

Hans Zimmer, “Interstellar”

Hans Zimmer’s “Interstellar” score was no “Inception” (or even “Rush” or “Man of Steel”), but it was haunting and big. If we ever fall into a wormhole, this is what we’ll be thinking about.

Johann Johannsson, “The Theory of Everything”

Similar to “The Imitation Game,” Johann Johannsson’s score for “The Theory of Everything” feels expressly written to win Oscars. But who cares when the theme is as beautiful as this?

Alex Ebert, “A Most Violent Year”

Alex Ebert, he of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros fame, wrote 1981’s best John Carpenter score.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, “Gone Girl”

The year’s best onscreen moment? We’ll take the Cool Girl montage in “Gone Girl” over many other worthy contenders for one reason alone: this above track, written by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

Jonny Greenwood, “Inherent Vice”

Working with Paul Thomas Anderson again after “There Will Be Blood” and “The Master,” Jonny Greenwood’s noir-y “Inherent Vice” score sounds like something Bernard Herrmann would like. But then it’s also beautiful and wistful. The above track, “Amethyst,” which plays during the film’s sweetest scene, being a prime example of its power.

BONUS: Nick Thorburn, “Serial”

It wasn’t a movie, but in addition to being one of the year’s most satisfying stories, “Serial” had the most infectious theme. Sorry, Desplat.
