LBV Plans First New York Fashion Week Runway Show, Launching Ready-to-Wear

LBV LAYERS UP: As creative director of the accessories label LBV, Elizabeth Kennedy will be showing off her first ready-to-wear collection for the company during New York Fashion Week. The ethos for LBVc/o Joss Sackler 2020 stemmed from the private women’s club by the same name that was started by Joss Sackler. Salonlike in that its members share ideas and interests, the debut collection is designed to be offshoots of Sackler’s style as well as her members. Confident in Kennedy’s design acumen, the club’s founder decided to invest in her to develop ready-to-wear, well-suited for on-the-go urbanites. Cocktail dresses, eveningwear and more tailored looks are part of the 40-style collection. It will be sold via the company’s e-commerce site in January and through an estimated 20 retailers for spring. The ready-to-wear will be in the $ 700-to-$ 3,000 retail range and the evening wear will fall between $ 1,800 and $ 7,000. The inaugural runway show will be Sept. 9 at the Bowery Terrace, and high-profile stylist Alex White will be working behind the scenes. Initially, the collection will be sold direct-to-consumer via the LBV site. But in a joint interview, Kennedy and Sackler said they have plans to wholesale the collection globally. There are also

Peter Pilotto and Boss to Show at Milan Fashion Week

MILAN — Just ahead of the summer holidays earmarked for most of the Italian fashion crowd, Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana today released the first official draft of its Milan Fashion Week schedule, running Sept. 17 to 23.
Among the biggest novelties peppering the calendar, Peter Pilotto, after 12 years of shows in London, will make its official debut in Milan with a show on Sept. 18 at the Teatro Manzoni venue.
“We are very honored to join the Camera della Moda Italiana Fashion Week calendar and engage on this new journey,” said Peter Pilotto, who founded the namesake label with Christopher de Vos in 2007. “We are also proud to represent British fashion abroad in such a key and sophisticated fashion capital as Milan.” The brand in January tapped an Italian chief executive officer, Maia Guarnaccia.
The upcoming Milan Fashion Week will also see the debut of the Boss brand, which will stage a coed runway show Sept. 22 at Tortona Area Lab, as well as of leather specialist Drome, which will relocate its show from Paris.
“I think that we are unveiling a great, strong calendar featuring a great mix of international labels, storied brands and talented emerging designers,” said Camera Nazionale della

Vogue Talents to Celebrate 10th Anniversary With Exhibition at Milan Fashion Week

TALENTS ON SHOW: To mark its 10th anniversary, Vogue Talents, Vogue Italia’s fashion talent scouting project, will be celebrated during the upcoming Milan Fashion Week with an exhibition at Brera’s Palazzo Cusani, running Sept. 20 and 21.
The exhibit will include the creations of 70 designers who in the past 10 years were involved in the program, which was founded in 2009 by the magazine’s late editor in chief Franca Sozzani and Sara Sozzani Maino, currently head of Vogue Talents and Vogue Italia deputy editor for special fashion projects.
“Vogue Talents was created to support the new generation of creatives at a time when few people believed in talent,” Sozzani Maino said. “It’s borderless and barrier-free, and it searches the world, because there’s talent everywhere. Our mission going forward is to act responsibly and set an example that the world needs to change.”
The list of designers scouted by the team of Vogue Talents includes names such as Jonathan Anderson, Aquazzura, Giannico, Paula Cademartori, Arthur Arbesser, Simone Rocha and Bethany Williams.
In keeping with the 10th anniversary celebrations, some of the aforementioned designers will explain the role that Vogue Talents had in the development of their careers with short movies which will be posted

Grailed Opens Paris Pop-Up for Men’s Fashion Week

TOUCHDOWN: Grailed has landed in Paris. The online men’s fashion and streetwear marketplace has opened a pop-up on Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau through Saturday, designed to be a “shoppable showroom” of more than 300 new and archival men’s wear pieces.
The showcase is the platform’s second pop-up after one in Los Angeles’ Fairfax district that ran for a few days in April.
According to a spokesman for Grailed, the marketplace has a strong following in Europe. Paris, as one of the world’s most influential cities for men’s style, was a logical choice, he said.
At the Paris space, customizable Grailed lab coats are available on a first come, first served and “best dressed” basis, according to the platform, with 40 up for grabs each day.
On Saturday, an Instagram competition will see 1,000 euros gifted to one attendee who posts and tags the showcase with the hashtag #GrailedPFW.

Cowboys, Y-Fronts and the New Drag: Brands to Check Out During Paris Men’s Week

PARIS — Paris men’s fashion week is having a moment: Hailing from Los Angeles, Sweden, China or Monaco, Rhude, Eytys, Li Ning and Alter are among the rising international brands that have been added to the official men’s calendar and presentation lineup this season.
GAMUT
Things are going pretty fast for Gamut, the fashion collective created in 2017 by former students of La Cambre fashion school in Brussels — which is surprising, because the seven French nationals are intent on taking their time.
“We’re continuing to experiment with the fashion calendar: We chose to skip fall 2019 to focus on our showroom, and realized that taking nine months to create a collection was a rhythm we quite liked,” said one of the members — all of whom prefer to remain anonymous — speaking at the collective’s studio at the Porte de la Chapelle, a somewhat sketchy area in the remote 18th arrondissement.
Since its first debut show last September, Gamut has added a photographer/visual director to its team, and landed a spot on the French couture federation’s official calendar for presentations. Now it’s behaving like full-fledged business with dedicated members in charge of sourcing, production, administration and communication. Decisions are still fully collegial, though.

Pitti Uomo and Milan Men’s Fashion Week: United They Stand

MILAN — Slim? Yes. Inconsequential? No.
There’s no arguing that the Milan’s Men’s Fashion Week calendar has shrunk in days and number of shows from years past and this season, which runs from June 15 to 17, it lost a cornerstone in Prada, which exceptionally decamped to Shanghai to show on June 6. Itinerant shows and coed collections in general have chipped away at Milan’s men’s calendar — but observers are still trumpeting its central role, especially pivoting around Pitti Uomo.
“Between Florence and Milan, it’s the most beautiful fashion week in the world,” enthused Brunello Cucinelli. “Pitti Uomo is an open-air fashion show, with 30,000 people walking around in a continuous exchange of ideas and it’s complementary to the big-name fashion shows in Milan, whose nature it is to hold such shows.”
Carlo Capasa, president of the Italian Camera della Moda, has long been saying that Milan Men’s Fashion Week and Pitti Uomo together form one single Italian fashion week. “They have two different vocations but there’s no other country that has this kind of global offer and impact that Italy has,” Capasa contended, touting the 800 showrooms and 3,000 brands present in Milan.
“This is a story that comes around regularly, but Pitti

British Label Stefan Cooke Finds Its Voice, and Flies Solo, at London Fashion Week Men’s

LONDON — Stefan Cooke and Jake Burt, cofounders of the label Stefan Cooke and finalists for the LVMH Prize, are about to stage their first solo runway show on June 9 during London Men’s Fashion Week, and they’re feeling the heat. “It feels surreal to be doing it by ourselves. It also feels intimidating,” said Cooke, who has witnessed a shower of accolades over the past two years.
The brand has won the H&M Design Award and the L’Oréal Professional Creative Award, but Cooke and Burt will now have to wait until September to see if they’ve scooped the LVMH Prize.
Having shown under the Fashion East umbrella, the duo have moved on from conceptual to more commercially focused designs. The label is stocked at Machine-A, Dover Street Market and Matchesfashion.com.
Their lines for spring/summer 2020 have a more relaxed silhouette than in past seasons, where trousers and shirts were tight and cropped. They will also be introducing a new bag concept, a category that’s been performing well for the company.
As they build the brand, they’ve been asking themselves some difficult questions, such as: “How do you take all of the things that are Stefan Cooke, like textile manipulations, and turn them into

British Fashion Council Highlights London’s Diversity Ahead of London Fashion Week Men’s

LONDON — The British Fashion Council wanted to celebrate diversity and culture with its latest campaign, “This Is London,” during London Fashion Week Men’s, which runs June 8 to 10.
The campaign, a series of 12 images, features a group of industry figures hailing from different backgrounds, from poet James Massiah to up-and-coming designers Bethany Williams, Paria Farzaneh and Bianca Saunders, retailer Stavros Karelis, filmmaker Akinola Davis and musician Louis III. It was shot by London-based photographer Markn, who has previously worked with Nick Knight.
“We wanted to celebrate not only the designers, but also the broader creative community who all play a vital role in our industry’s culture and reputation,” said Caroline Rush, chief executive officer of BFC, who also makes an appearance on the campaign, alongside Dylan Jones, editor in chief of British GQ and chair of men’s wear at the BFC.
“The ‘This Is London’ campaign shines a light on the incredible pool of talent that makes London the creative capital of the world. From rising stars to established names, the campaign features a diverse mix of individuals, celebrating the eccentricity of our capital while illustrating that LFWM is a global platform for innovation and culture,” added Jones.

New York Fashion Week: Men’s Hanging on by a Thread

New York Fashion Week: Men’s is on life support.
Less than three weeks until the start of the men’s spring runway season, the Council of Fashion Designers of America has finally released its calendar — and it’s not pretty.
There are fewer than 20 men’s designers showing and half are with Agentry PR’s New York Men’s Day. Absent from the calendar are some designers who have been active supporters of the men’s shows since they were launched four years ago, including Todd Snyder, Robert Geller, Ovadia New York, Carlos Campos and Bode.
Instead, the calendar kicks off on June 3 with Agentry’s presentations of small and emerging designers only. The following day, N.Hoolywood will show at 6 p.m., followed by Frere at 7 p.m. The final day on June 5 will see presentations from Hecho, Freemans Sporting Club, Untitled Collective, Dyne and Linder, as well as shows from Private Policy, NIHL and Grungy Gentleman.
The reasons for the lack of participation are several. First, this marks the first time the men’s shows have moved from July to June to coincide with women’s resort. That timing is early for a lot of brands since the men’s market in New York is generally in mid- to

Agentry to Open New York Fashion Week: Men’s Again

Agentry PR is pivoting.
The organizer of New York Men’s Day, a showcase for emerging designers, will once again open the men’s spring calendar, working in tandem with the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
The CFDA shifted the men’s dates to June 3 to 5 this season to coincide with the women’s resort calendar. This means the New York-based men’s shows will take place ahead of the men’s shows in London, Florence, Milan and Paris.
Agentry had considered sticking with the former July dates to give the designers more time to prepare their collections and align with the New York men’s trade shows, but opted to stick with CFDA instead.
But there are other changes: New York Men’s Day will now be held at Daylight Studios & Location 05, next to the newly opened Hudson Yards complex on the West Side of Manhattan. For the past few seasons, the shows had been held at Dune Studios in the financial district.
New York Men’s Day will feature presentations from nine designers, down from 12 in prior iterations. Five will be held over a two-hour period in the morning and four in the afternoon.
But the event will also feature an All Stars Showcase where previous Men’s

Cottweiler Becomes First British Brand to Show at Seoul Fashion Week 

LONDON — The British Fashion Council is furthering its partnership with Seoul Fashion Week in support of emerging talent, with men’s wear label Cottweiler the first to benefit from the special relationship.
Cottweiler, the streetwear brand that won the 2016-17 International Woolmark Prize for men’s wear, will be the first British name to be sponsored at Seoul Fashion Week in March. The brand will restage its fall 2019 show alongside those of South Korean designers.
“We are very grateful to be given the opportunity by the BFC and Seoul Fashion Week to present our work to a wider audience and connect to our already growing fan base in South Korea,” said designers Matthew Dainty and Ben Cottrell of Cottweiler. “This will be our first venture outside of London Fashion Week and for it to be in a city that embraces cutting-edge style like no other is an exciting prospect.”
The BFC-Seoul partnership aims to support emerging British and South Korean talent through sponsorships and to provide them with the opportunity to showcase directly to buyers and media.

Chainmail Is a Trend Happening at Paris Fashion Week

As many stay tuned to Paris Fashion Week, an unlikely fashion trend has popped up among the Parisian street-style set: chainmail.
The 12th-century armor, originally a mesh made up of metal rings to protect the head and body, has been reimagined by many Paris showgoers, who are wearing the style in silver, gold and black as clothing, headwear and handbags.
Giving a nod to the medieval chainmail style, two showgoers were seen wearing the style as headwear, one with a black chain-link headpiece worn over a metallic silver headscarf and another wearing a silver chain-link headpiece with a matching handbag.

Others went with more of a disco theme. Designer Michelle Elie wore a silver metallic sequined dress with a matching bag, while another paired a metallic gold chain-link top with a matching gold sequined skirt.

Rokh’s Paris Fashion Week Debut Signals Ambitious Future

LONDON — When he founded Rokh in 2016, London-based designer Rok Hwang wanted to experiment with the construction of garments and propose new silhouettes.
While his fashion might be cool and of-the-moment — think oversize shirts with extra-large cuffs, deconstructed trench coats and fluid dresses — Hwang has chosen to take the more traditional, and at times more challenging, route to brand-building. He offers ready-to-wear and handbags, he is committed to a wholesale strategy and to building long-term relationships with luxury European manufacturers.
He favors traditional show formats, too, which is why he’s making his runway debut at Paris Fashion Week, having amassed a growing network of 120 retail partners, including Net-a-porter. (See review this page.)
“It’s been a personal dream to show in Paris. I also wanted to give the option to the brand to have international exposure and to pass on the message that we are now more established,” Hwang said in an interview.
In an interview last week, he was unequivocal about his ambition to build a full-fledged design house. He’s set the bar high, having cut his teeth at the likes of Celine, Louis Vuitton and Chloé. He credits his time at Celine under Phoebe Philo as a particular influence.

Retailers Weigh In on the Pros and Cons of Men’s Fashion Week

Men’s wear retailers had a choice to make this week: stay in New York for the men’s runway shows or jump a flight to Las Vegas for the trade shows.
As reported, both events overlap this season; an unfortunate shift in dates by Project to a week earlier forced merchants and vendors to choose between the two.
NYFW: Men’s will run Feb. 4 to 6 in New York City — the start of the larger 10-day New York Fashion Week — while Project, Liberty Fairs and Agenda will run Feb. 5 to 7 in Las Vegas.
The men’s part of the show calendar has had trouble gaining traction since it was introduced by the Council of Fashion Designers of America four years ago. Most of the marquee designers have either opted for dual-gender shows — Tom Ford, Michael Kors and John Elliott among them — or showed in Europe, such as Ralph Lauren and Thom Browne. Other men’s designers have opted out of showing in New York altogether including Billy Reid, Perry Ellis and Carlos Campos.
With some exceptions — Joseph Abboud, Todd Snyder, Robert Geller and Ovadia & Sons — the men’s-specific days on the calendar are full of little-known designer names, many of

Deborah Lyons Kicks Off London Fashion Week With Jazz Night

COMING HOME: Deborah Lyons loves keeping her audience entertained.
For the debut of her new fall 2019 collection, she took over London’s Burlington Arcade on the eve of London Fashion Week — which also happened to be Valentine’s Day — dressed it up with myriad red roses and invited guests and their loved ones for a jazz night.
There were drinks, chocolate treats and a live jazz performance, with the band and singers sporting Lyons’ new fall 2019 pieces, which channeled a tougher, more confident mood, with a darker color palette and a strong focus on the brand’s signature silhouettes.
Some of the highlights included plaid tailored blazers and matching slim pants, body-hugging jumpsuits and a dramatic maxidress appliquéd with red roses all over.
This was the first time Lyons showed on home turf, after taking her show on the road and hosting her debut presentation aboard a Eurostar carriage last September.
“We wanted to do something more intimate and local this time, that brought together our immediate community. Also it’s a nice way to lead into London Fashion Week,” Lyons said.
Her aim with choosing off-schedule slots and alternative presentation formats remains the same: Cutting through the fashion week noise and getting the right audience

Five Minutes With Zen-like Fashion Week Rookie Nathalie Kelley

Most fashion week rookies are all about the photo-ops, but not actress Nathalie Kelley. While her fellow celebrity models were primping before Thursday night’s Red Dress Collection, she sat in the lotus position reading Neil LaBute’s “The Way We Get By.”
Minutes away from her runway debut at the Manhattan Center, the “Fast and the Furious” actress was calm as could be, wearing her red Randi Rahm  dress under a monogrammed red robe. At the Red Dress to help the cause, Kelley said her identity and ego were not wrapped up in what was about to happen. “I don’t care where I’m placed or if I’m seen in the photo,” she said with a laugh. “I meditate a lot.”
Losing her phone in a cab en route to another fashion show earlier in the day did not rattle her either. “I made a decision that I wasn’t going to make it a problem,” she said. “It was so nice to be fully present. “Everybody is always waiting for the show to start [pretending to swipe a phone]. I was drinking it up. It’s theater — the setting, the sound, the lighting, even watching the people. As an actress, I’m devouring that.”

EXCLUSIVE: Heron Preston on Opening Paris Men’s Fashion Week

PARIS — “Streetwear on the runways of Paris has always been that vision that I’ve shared with my friends, the ultimate opportunity to present some new fresh ideas in a city and platform that we have always looked up to,” said Heron Preston, who today at the Palais de Tokyo will present the first runway show of his namesake label, as part of the official calendar of Paris Men’s Fashion Week.
Call him a quick learner. Preston, who was “raised” by the skate culture in San Francisco where he grew up, and who first started making noise in 2012 with his art-project bootleg spins on the Givenchy Rottweiler T-shirt, said that it was only around four years ago, when he started working with Kanye West, that he was introduced to the world of Paris fashion.
A former art director for West, Preston — who’s considered a post-Internet Renaissance man — worked at Nike and was also a part of the Been Trill art and DJ collective with Virgil Abloh, Justin Saunders and Matthew Williams.

MM6 Maison Margiela to Show During Milan Fashion Week

MILAN ON THE MIND: MM6 Maison Margiela, the contemporary line of Maison Margiela, is heading to Italy.
For the first time since its launch in 1997, the label will present its new collection in Milan with an event on Feb. 20 during Milan Fashion Week.
“MM6 will take the street again in a two-hours presentation format reflecting the inclusivity spirit of the brand: one creative concept will spread through the whole collection and will take over the venue in an immersive experience,” the brand said in a statement on Tuesday.
The planned show follows the opening of the first MM6 Maison Margiela boutique in Milan’s Porta Nuova district last February. It marks the latest move for the collection, which was shown in London since the spring 2016 season, and in New York and Paris before that.
Last September, the label’s design collective swapped its usual presentation format for a runway show, which saw models parade around a dimly lit Covent Garden warehouse, complete with broken chandeliers, cracked mirrors and graffiti across the walls.

What to Watch: New York Fashion Week: Men’s Latest Challenges

New York Fashion Week: Men’s has had trouble gaining a foothold since it was launched by the Council of Fashion Designers of America four years ago. The upcoming fall shows — slated for Feb. 4 to 6 — are facing even bigger challenges. First, an unexpected one-time shift in dates by the trade shows in Las Vegas means that retailers and editors who usually attend both will have to make a choice or abbreviate one or both of the events. Project, Liberty Fairs and Agenda will be held Feb. 5 to 7.
On top of that, many of fashion’s biggest and buzziest names have opted to either hold dual-gender shows or have decamped to other cities.

Also opting for dual-gender shows later in the week are Palm Angels — which is making its New York debut — on Feb. 8; John Elliott on Feb. 9; Opening Ceremony on Feb. 10, and Michael Kors on the final day, Feb. 13.

London Fashion Week Men’s Fall 2019: What to See, Eat and Where to Shop

LONDON — The first weekend in January is never an easy one, but London has the antidote, with a lineup of streetwear and luxury stores and restaurants serving everything from classic British to Taiwanese food, all of which will be open during London Fashion Week Men’s.

London store End. 
Peter Cook

END OF THE LINE: British property group Shaftesbury has expanded its retail portfolio, opening the first London outpost for the online men’s wear store, End. Occupying 9,000 square feet on the corner of Broadwick and Marshall Streets, the two-story glass-fronted space offers a range of collections from labels including Off-White, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Nike and Adidas Consortiums. The store, which already has units in Newcastle, England, and Glasgow, Scotland, features modern furnishings such as marble staircases and glass showcases.
End is part of a strategy by Shaftesbury to position Soho as a go-to destination for emerging brands. The company has been offering reasonable rents in the neighborhood, which is a few minutes’ walk from Oxford and Regent Streets. Shaftesbury has also helped to install Supreme, Palace, Carhartt and Dukes Cupboard, a multibrand retailer, in the neighborhood. Samantha Bain-Mollison, head of retail at Shaftesbury, has been driving the strategy. She describes End as “influential, with a renowned selection of directional and globally sourced men’s wear.” — Hannah Connolly

CFDA Releases New York Fashion Week Schedule

The next New York Fashion Week will see a dual-gender Tom Ford show bridge the official men’s and women’s calendars.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America released a preliminary schedule Tuesday night that includes Ford at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6, the last of the three-day men’s-specific schedule. His show will be co-ed, however.
In addition, Joseph Abboud will be showing at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 4, followed by Todd Snyder at 8:00 that night. Other known names on the men’s roster are Robert Geller who will show on Tuesday, Feb. 5, at 7:00 p.m., and Ovadia & Sons who will show an hour later that night. Tuesday will also see shows from Dyne, N. Hoolywood, Landlord and Linder.
As reported, a shift in dates by Project in Las Vegas means that the runway shows will overlap with the men’s trade shows this time. Project, Liberty and Agenda will hold their shows Feb. 5–7.
As far as the women’s shows are concerned, Ralph Lauren will kick off the week at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 7, and Marc Jacobs will end the week on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 6:00 p.m.
French accessories house Longchamp, which staged its first New York show last

Alexander McQueen Missing From Paris Men’s Week

SHOW BUSINESS: Big acts missing from the official schedule of Paris Men’s Week in January will include Alexander McQueen. The house plans to switch to a series of intimate events as its new presentation format, WWD has learned. The first will take place in London in May for the fall 2019 season. “Intrinsically connected to the bespoke tailoring heritage of Alexander McQueen men’s wear, these events will be central to the evolution of the house’s commitment to the championing of creativity, craftsmanship and innovation,” the brand said. The house moved to showing in Paris in June 2017 after having shown by appointment in Milan and London in previous seasons.
As expected, Lanvin, which recently parted ways with its men’s creative director Lucas Ossendrijver, is also missing from the lineup, according to the Chambre Syndicale which released its provisional schedule for the week on Friday.
Maison Margiela will also sit out the Paris men’s shows this season as it undergoes a strategic review under chief executive officer Riccardo Bellini, who joined the company in March. The house is believed to be aligning its men’s ready-to-wear collection more closely with its women’s line and Artisanal couture collection. Maison Margiela creative director John Galliano oversees

Gucci to Host Event During January’s Fashion Week in Milan

MILAN — Gucci will cap off the upcoming Men’s Fashion Week in January with a performance event here.
As Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana president Carlo Capasa revealed during a press conference on Wednesday presenting the schedule of the city’s upcoming fashion week, the fashion label — which will return to Milan in February with a coed show after it decamped to Paris last September for one season — will host the “Motus presents MDLSX with Silvia Calderoni” performance event at its Gucci hub headquarters on Jan. 14. The performance, which will be produced by independent theater company Motus and directed by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò, will blend a monologue by Calderoni and video projections exploring the notion of gender identity in a play inspired by the 2003 novel “Middlesex” by American writer Jeffrey Eugenides. Capasa dubbed the event “not to be missed,” noting how important it is for Gucci to be part of the official schedule.
Men’s Fashion Week will run Jan. 11 to 14 and while, as reported, the Giorgio Armani brand is the latest to join the likes of Gucci, Bottega Veneta and Salvatore Ferragamo to skip the January shows to host a coed runway event in February, Emporio Armani

Catherine Deneuve Set to Sell YSL Wardrobe During Couture Week

BELLE DE JOUR: French actress Catherine Deneuve is putting her personal collection of Yves Saint Laurent pieces up for auction at Christie’s France.
Starting January 23 during Paris Couture Week, the auction house will unveil 300 items of clothing and accessories belonging to Deneuve, a longtime friend of Saint Laurent’s.
It will put on sale 150 lots on January 24, with additional pieces being presented online from January 23 to January 30. An exhibition of the lots will be open to the public between January 19 and 24.
“Today, I am letting go of my house in Normandy where I kept this collection, not without sadness,” said Deneuve in a statement. “These are creations by such a talented man, who only designed to make women more beautiful.”
A standout piece up for sale is a short, fringed and embroidered dress from the spring 1969 haute couture collection that Deneuve wore when she first met Alfred Hitchcock in 1969, estimated to sell for between 3,000 euros and 5,000 euros.
Other lots include a long peacock blue silk evening dress from the fall 1997 collection worth 2,000 to 3,000 euros, and a black wool Le Smoking tuxedo, chosen by Deneuve to wear at the couture house’s 20th

New York Fashion Week: Men’s, Vegas Date Overlap Causing Angst

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe — make your choice — New York Fashion Week: Men’s or MAGIC.
A shift in dates by Project, the flagship men’s wear trade show of the MAGIC Marketplace in Las Vegas, to a week earlier in February is forcing many brands and retailers to choose between the two events or, in the case of smaller designers, create extra samples in order to have a presence at both.
NYFW: Men’s will run Feb. 4 to 6 in New York City while Project will run Feb. 5 to 7 in Las Vegas.
Already Liberty Fairs and Agenda have had to leave their longtime home at the Sands Convention Center in order to align with Project’s dates and have secured a spot in downtown Las Vegas for their shows.
Sharifa Murdock, co-owner of Liberty, said she’s aiming to deliver a different experience this time. Liberty will be held at the World Market Center, which she described as an “open space with four big tents” that will allow Liberty a clean slate to “create what we want. We’re going to do something brand new,” she said.
That will include “a lot of activations” that will offer a “fresh” take on the trade show scene. “We

Tokyo Fashion Week Receives Tepid Reviews With Some Bright Spots

TOKYO — Eagle-eyed buyers at Tokyo Fashion Week discovered some gems beyond the runways — even one that might satisfy despondent Phoebe-philes.
“I think there may be an opportunity for Hyke to gain a bigger following. For people who were fans of Phoebe Philo’s Celine who are now looking elsewhere, Hyke could possibly fill that void,” said Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi, creative director of United Arrows & Sons.
Hyke staged a large-scale show in a rented venue for the first time this season. And while it is already carried by some of the best stores in Japan and across Asia, Kogi believes it may have potential in the West as well.
Tomomi Miyamoto, a men’s wear buyer for Hankyu and Hanshin Department Stores, said she planned to pick up Japanese brand Comoli, which also did not participate in fashion week. “The quality of the materials is unique to Japan, and the designer’s proposal for the way clothes should feel when you wear them is fresh,” Miyamoto said. “I can feel its strength in its conviction to be unshakable by trends.”
Tokyo Fashion Week finished its six-day run on Saturday to largely mixed reviews. After what many considered to be a strong autumn season, the spring 2019 installment generated
