Diesel Teams with Netflix Series “La Casa de Papel”

JOINING THE HEIST: Let the binge-watching – and purchasing – begin. Diesel has revealed a partnership with hit Netflix series “La Casa de Papel,” also known as “Money Heist.”
Created by Álex Pina in 2017, the Spanish show revolves around a long-prepared, multi-day assault on the Royal Mint of Spain in Madrid conceived by a criminal mastermind and executed by eight thieves whose identities are undisclosed. Over the arc of just two seasons, the series gained worldwide popularity, with some of its signature elements becoming part of the pop culture, including the red uniforms; the Salvador Dalí-inspired masks worn by the protagonists during the heist; and the Italian anti-fascist song “Bella ciao” played multiple times in emblematic scenes as a metaphor of resistance and freedom.
For the third season of the show, which will be released on July 19, Diesel’s design team created the red hooded jumpsuits worn by the key characters. As part of the collaboration, the brand will also offer a limited number of jumpsuits worn on set to aficionados of the show and consumers through an online contest.

The CFDA x Project initiative will bring five men’s wear designers to the show at the Las Vegas Convention Center within a new section called N:ow Lab, a concept space that will rotate each season. Project is moving from its longtime home at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center to join the women’s and footwear shows at the convention center from Aug. 12 through Aug. 14.
The designers participating in the first edition are Kenneth Nicholson, Lukhanyo Mdingi, NIHL, Sanchez-Kane and Willy Chavarria.
Mark Beckham, chief marketing officer of CFDA, said this initiative is intended to serve as a business platform, or “matchmaking,” for these designers to connect them with potential retail customers.

The designers were chosen to ensure they have the wherewithal to produce and deliver any orders they might receive from retailers at the show, he said.

To celebrate its 25th year, the Boston-based company has recruited Aly Raisman and Dunkin’ to try to jump-start a nationwide movement. Collectively with its brand partners, consumers are being challenged to share #SomethingGood. Some might say the former Olympian did just that last year, when she testified against now-convicted former physician Larry Nassar. This Life Is Good-led effort is designed to support children in need.
The aim is to spread the power of optimism so that more individuals will achieve a happy and fulfilling life. That objective has been the brand’s mission since it started years ago. Running through September, the campaign is designed to shift the societal narrative from negative to positive. For every #SomethingGood that is shared online, the company will donate $ 1 to the Life Is Good Kids Foundation. The goal is to reach donating up to $ 1 million.
In addition, 100 percent of the net profits from a new Life Is Good limited-edition #SomethingGood T-shirt will be donated directly to the Life is Good Kids Foundation. The $ 28 T-shirt is available for men

Isaac Mizrahi Teams With New Balance for Collaboration for QVC

Just don’t expect the designer to be spewing tips about the keto diet, TRX training or burpees, when he officially launches the New Balance x Isaac Mizarhi Live! collection. A natural performer, Mizrahi has done a one-man cabaret, “Project Runway: All Stars,” an annual narrative for “Peter and the Wolf,” and has just released his memoir “I.M.” with Flatiron Books. Some of that on-stage sheen has come from nearly 10 years of air time, selling on QVC.
“People tell me, ‘Oh my God, you’re such a good salesman. I just show up and I talk about the product, which I really like. By the way, I’m not talking about ballgowns or about ironic twists on whatever. I’m just talking about these clothes that I think are well-thought through, and valuable because of how great they wear, how long they last and what they mean in a closet, as opposed to other stuff that’s so puzzling.

Burberry Teams With U.K. Charity Smart Works to Dress Women in Need

GET SMART: Burberry is marking International Women’s Day by spreading the love, and the checks and the trench coats, to women in need of work wardrobes. Since 2013, the brand has been teaming with the British women’s charity Smart Works, which offers new, donated clothing and styling advice to women in need who are trying to get back into the workforce. Burberry has always donated clothing to Smart Works, but this year for the first time it invited seven women from the program into its London showrooms for a styling session and the opportunity to pick out their capsule work wardrobes.
The clients are at stage two of the Smart Works program, meaning they have secured employment and will need clothing to wear to their new jobs, ahead of their first pay checks. Half of Smart Works’ clients are from an ethnic minority, are long-term unemployed and have been unsuccessful with a large number of job applications. Smart Works said the majority of women it helps eventually secure full employment and that it aims to dress 3,500 women this year in the U.K.

Mark Zunino Teams up with Bridal Reflections, Dresses ‘Entertainment Tonight’ Hosts for Red Carpet

Living and designing in Beverly Hills, Mark Zunino has seen the extremes celebrities rely on for red-carpet dressing and he wants consumers to avoid them.
With Mark Zunino Atelier, a new red-carpet inspired bridal and eveningwear collection, the designer wants women to have figure-flattering looks by choosing a well-constructed gown. Architecture was his course of study at Pepperdine, but accepting an undergrad job at Nolan Miller’s assistant altered his career plans. At that time in the Eighties, Miller designed costumes for the glitzy hit show “Dynasty.” Catering to clients like Sophia Loren, Bette Davis, Ann-Margret and Lana Turner (whom Miller was engaged to at one point), “we were so Hollywood engulfed. We were flying around globally,” Zunino said, during a preview of his wedding gowns at Bridal Reflections’ Fifth Avenue flagship. A one-year commitment led to a decades-long one, with Zunino eventually buying the rights to Emmy-winning Miller’s company. Miller died in 2012.
Traces of his designs for such celebrity clients as Jennifer Lopez can be seen in such unexpected bridal styles as a beaded open-back jumpsuit. With eveningwear retailing for upwards of $ 6,000 and wedding dresses starting at $ 8,000, the collection is being sold exclusively through Bridal Reflections, a three-store operation

Model Behati Prinsloo Teams With Seven For All Mankind

LUCKY SEVEN: Model Behati Prinsloo won’t have a Super Bowl-sized audience like her husband Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levin did last weekend, but she is front-and-center for Seven For All Mankind.
The model is the focus of the Los Angeles-based denim and lifestyle brand’s spring campaign. Lensman Guy Aroch shot her along the California coast for the third installment of #wearemankind. The model is a familiar face with the fashion crowd, having worked with Victoria’s Secret, Elizabeth Arden and Swarovski, among others.
As a jeans kind of girl, she modeled styles with denim side stripes, fringe accents, unexpected soft fabrics and pops of color. Malcolm Jackson, Ali Tate Cutler, Alicia Herbeth and Josh Upshaw rounded out her supporting cast for the Delta Galil Industries-owned label. This time around, the “We Are Mankind” initiative plays up the layers that make up individuals. The brand will also be adding new denim and ready-to-wear styles for women and men.
Executives at the denim label met the model in October and appreciated “her genuine obsession with denim and admiration for Seven For All Mankin,” a company spokeswoman said. “What we love most about Behati is that she is more than meets the eye, beyond being in this

Fashion Brands’ Collaborative Efforts With Soccer Teams: Is It Worth It to Play?

MILAN — It’s often said that one’s favorite soccer team is forever. Which might be true for the 736 million fans that soccer has reportedly attracted in 2017 across 18 surveyed markets, according to a study released by American measurement and data analytics company Nielsen.
The number translates into a big opportunity for companies across different categories and especially for fashion brands supplying off-the-field uniforms and developing co-branded capsule collections, to bank on soccer’s global relevance and possibly tap into new customers.
For instance, Thom Browne joined the arena last year by crafting for the first time the off-the-field tailored and formalwear uniforms of FC Barcelona with a deal covering the next three years, while Hugo Boss has renewed its partnership with the AS Roma, FC Bayern, Real Madrid, Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain teams.

Some remain skeptical. “As a marketing tool, I’m uncertain about the return on investment. First of all, there’s a target issue: Are fans of soccer teams target customers for these brands?” wondered Alessandro Maria Ferreri, chief executive officer of The Style Gate consultancy firm. He noted that brands are often putting a lot of money and efforts

H&M Teams With Eytys for Gender-Neutral Collection

SWEDE TEAM: Hennes & Mauritz has teamed with Eytys for a gender neutral collection due early next year, targeting younger consumers with a fashion-forward offer.
The fast-fashion retailer will sell the Swedish label’s chunky-soled shoes and clothing for adults as well as items for children, starting Jan. 24 in some stores around the world and online.
The collaboration comes as the Swedish retailer undergoes a vast restructuring in a bid to beef up online services and speed up supply chains to catch up with rivals. The group last month said it would close Cheap Monday, a label geared to younger clients.
“The collection is all about proportions — creating a distinct unisex silhouette by playing around with loose silhouettes and chunky architectural footwear,” said Max Schiller, Eytys creative director.
Colors will include dark green, bright yellow, khaki, dark blue, black and white, while materials will include snakeskin prints, fake patent leather and stiff cotton. Shoes will be offered in boxes decorated with artwork by painter Zoe Barcza.
According to H&M’s statement, the retailer initially approached the label for a shoe collection but then decided on a full range of clothing and accessories, too, in order to show the “whole brand aesthetic and ethos,” according to Ross Lydon,

STREET-SMART FASHION: The streetwear brand X-Girl has lined up portrait photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis for its latest collaboration.
Compact to the degree that only three items are offered, the styles are available through Sunday at Social Studies NY, a multipurpose space and pop-up. To help spread the word about the collaboration, photographer Chandler Kennedy shot the painter and model Monica Hernandez wearing the assortment. A “Mini Me” crewneck sweatshirt retails for $ 95, the $ 50 “Too Many Rich People in NY” T-shirt and the $ 50 “Less, Less, Less” tote bag, which was hand-dyed by Jarvis, are up-for-grabs.
Jarvis, who has shot for Gap, Supreme, Riposte and others, dove into the capsule collection sector last year for the launch of her Baque Creative Press-published book. Started by musician Kim Gordon and stylist Daisy von Furth in 1994, the X-Girl brand has renewed its focus on New York, and is on the lookout for new talent and creatives that align with the brand. The company has more than 100 stores in Japan and has loyalists like Chloë Sevigny and Sofia Coppola. Early on, the Lafayette Street-rooted label rallied young feminists and that ethos remains.

Hugo Boss Teams With Jeremyville on Holiday Capsule

Every year, Hugo Boss commissions an artist to create a special collection to commemorate the Chinese New Year and the holiday season. Some years it’s easier, like 2018, the Year of the Dog, when the German brand worked with artist Julian Meagher to create Playforever, a collection centered around race cars where a dog is featured in the driver’s seat.
But 2019 will be the Year of the Pig, which creative director Ingo Wilts admitted “was a little bit challenging. How can we do Hugo Boss and a pig in a fun way?”

The sneakers are printed with pigs and other characters. 

But when the brand found New York City-based artist Jeremyville, he soon put its fears to rest. The artist offered up a colorful cityscape featuring an array of characters, including pigs, that the brand put on accessories such as bags and shoes as well as apparel. The characters were printed onto leather accessories in a relief design, a leather backpack features a Jeremyville rabbit, and a sneaker has a raised pig motif. There are also dress shirts, sweatshirts, tees and bombers as well as figurines, charms and iPhone cases.

Danielle Guizio Teams With FDNY to Create Limited-Edition Capsule Collection

FOUR-ALARM FASHION: With a few relatives who are firefighters, Danielle Giuzio understands the round-the-clock dedication that goes with the job. Now the New York-based contemporary designer has created a capsule collection with the New York City Fire Department. Developed to honor the work of New York’s bravest, the nine-piece collection of genderless streetwear features FDNY logos and incorporates uniform accents and fire truck insignia.
Four years into her own company, Giuzio started her career as a stylist, working with Lady Gaga’s stylist. More recently, she started doing a little personal shopping on the side at the request of her friends including Halsey, whom she first met six years ago. One of Giuzio’s childhood friends is now the musician’s manager. The designer said she first got to know of Halsey via the Internet. “It might have even been before Instagram,” she said.
The pair became friends during their leaner days, when each was trying to make their way. At that time, Halsey was sleeping on the floor with two of Giuzio’s other friends in a New York apartment. As for lending a hand to Gaga’s wardrobe, Giuzio said she grew up singing and dancing to the six-time Grammy winner’s music in her friends’

LONDON — 24 Sèvres is continuing its commitment to offer exclusive product from LVMH-owned labels that don’t have wide e-commerce presence.
After teaming with Céline on an exclusive range, the retailer’s next project includes the release of an exclusive capsule with Louis Vuitton.
Five of the most buzzy products from the label’s fall 2018 collection have been reissued for the capsule, including a black logo dress, the popular “Vanity” structured tote bag in taupe, the “Party” aviator sunglasses in blue-tinged frames and the famous Archlight sneakers recreated in a blue, yellow and white color palette.
“As the exclusive retailer for Louis Vuitton, 24 Sèvres has been a partner of the Maison since day one. This collaboration was a natural next step,” said a company representative, pointing to the retailer’s commitment to offering unique pieces that can’t be found anywhere else.
“This has informed the regular capsules and collaborations released since the launch in June 2017. Exclusive product is at the center of our product strategy.”
The retailer added that more capsules are in the works and it’s looking to engage a mix of luxury and contemporary labels that reflect the “mix and match Parisian lifestyle” and the way its brick-and-mortar counterpart, Le Bon Marché is

Ant-Man and the Wasp Sets Up Two Marvel Teams

Ant-Man and the Wasp may have chronicled the story of Scott Lang, Hank Pym and Hope van Dyne attempting to rescue the long-lost Janet van Dyne from the Quantum Realm, but along the way it also subtly sowed seeds for the debut of two teams from Marvel’s comics — teams that could be part of the as-of-yet unrevealed Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Manny Machado trade market: Eight teams talking to Orioles, but these two are the front-runners

Given that the Orioles are terrible and that pending free agent Manny Machado is the opposite of terrible, it seems highly likely that the star infielder will be moved in advance of the non-waiver trade deadline.  Machado in his age-25 season is batting .311/.378/.565 (160 OPS+) with 21 home runs in 83 games. That's on pace to be easily a career year for Machado, and he's also proved himself capable of returning to the shortstop position in 2018. He's going to get paid this coming offseason, and he may wind up fetching a bigger contract than Bryce Harper does.  In the here and now, though, Machado is very likely on his way to a contender.

Palace Skateboards Teams With Adidas for Court-Driven Apparel and Accessories Collaboration

For an elevated echelon of athletes, Wimbledon — with its grass courts, all-white dress code and strawberries and cream tradition — could be considered palatial in terms of sporting events. With 11 tournament wins, Roger Federer might be considered king.
In time for the crown jewel in London’s tennis circuit, the British skate label Palace has linked with Adidas to create a court-ready collection. The Adidas tennis by Palace collection debuts globally on July 3. To help get the message out, photographer Alasdair McLellan shot Palace-sponsored skateboarders Blondey McCoy, Lucien Clarke and Rory Milanes, along with Adidas-supported tennis players Sascha Zverev and 2017 Wimbledon women’s singles winner Garbiñe Muguruza.
The two brands have whipped up an assortment of items including a white terry tracksuit with removable sleeves, an engineered polo shirt, a graphic T-shirt and two styles of short. For the women’s range — a new frontier for Palace — there is a dress, a tank top with shorts, T-shirt and skirt. Each garment has a short legging in line with those worn by leading tennis stars.
Rounding out the assortment are accessories such as crew socks, and “no-show’ ones, a tie band, caps, wristbands, a white terry bucket hat, tennis balls and

Paco Rabanne Teams With Apartamento Magazine

RUBBER SOUL: Paco Rabanne has handed over the window of its Rue Cambon boutique to hip interiors magazine Apartamento, which has put its take on one of the label’s signature raw materials: rubber.
The collaboration, celebrated with a cocktail at the boutique Friday evening, coincides with the magazine’s 10th anniversary, while its spring 2018 edition also features a still-life photo shoot with the substance.
“I’ve always adored Apartamento,” said Julien Dossena, Paco Rabanne’s creative director for women’s wear. “It’s a magazine that combines all disciplines with a lot of modernity and refinement, and I was thrilled to collaborate with them on this window.”
The display, which will remain in place until early July, combines recycled rubber elements with designs from the label’s current collection made with the substance.
Apartamento art director Omar Sosa explained that since the magazine’s beginnings 10 years ago, each issue has featured a still-life series built around a specific material. “For this issue, we chose rubber, and we replicated this in the window,” he said. “These still lives are about improvisation, it’s part of the game for us. It was easy, in the best way possible, because our esthetics are very aligned [with those of Paco Rabanne].”
