Macy’s Unveils ‘Park’ Men’s Department at Herald Square

There’s a new park in New York City, but it’s not a green space in one of the boroughs. This one is located in the middle of the main floor men’s department at Macy’s Herald Square.
Last week the department store quietly took the wraps off Park, a newly imagined and elevated men’s area that brings together a selection of new and existing brands in a highly visible 14,500-square-foot space on the Seventh Avenue side of the floor.
Park, which now anchors the large main floor and measures 4,500 square feet, takes over the space previously devoted to dress furnishings, which have been relocated to the fifth floor alongside tailored clothing.
“We had a soft opening last Thursday and we’re happy with the results so far,” said Mark Stocker, general business manager for men’s and kids, during a walkthrough with WWD.
He said the team at Macy’s started brainstorming over a year ago about how to best “evolve” the men’s store to be part of the “mini-revolution” occurring in retailing today. Customers are seeking an ever-changing assortment of product that is new and different. Macy’s is answering that demand with Park, which will rotate every eight to 12 weeks.
“The idea is that every time

EXCLUSIVE: Chanel Chooses Capri for Its Cruise 2021 Show

WANDERLUST: Chanel will be back on the road, to Capri, Italy, to show its cruise 2021 collection on May 7 next year, WWD has learned.
“We are very happy to go to Italy, and even more so to go to Capri,” Bruno Pavlovsky, president of fashion and president of Chanel SAS, told WWD. “It’s a very inspiring place, very inspiring for Virginie Viard. We have a lovely cruise show in the works.”
“From the 1920s, Gabrielle Chanel offered her clients lightweight and comfortable designs for yachting, coastal resorts, spa towns and other various sunny destinations such as the Riviera and the Lido beaches of Venice,” Chanel said in a statement.
It will be the second cruise collection designed by Viard, who has helmed the house’s artistic direction since the death of Karl Lagerfeld in February.
The Capri event will mark the first time since 2016 that Chanel is to present a cruise line outside of the French capital, where it’s been showing for the last three years to help the city counter the fallout from the 2015 terrorist attacks and to enhance its reputation as the global capital of fashion.
Prior to that, the fashion house was a big proponent of roving cruise shows, starting

Jil Sander RTW Spring 2020

Balance is a goal that most everyone aspires to reach in life. Probably one of the most difficult to attain, considering the chaotic lifestyle of today. But a fashion show, if considered as a representation of tiny fragments of life, gives us that peaceful feel that, for a handful of minutes, everything is in its own place and the balance is found. This happened on Wednesday night at Milan’s Brera Academy where Jil Sander unveiled a beautiful collection, which seemed to center on the concept of balance.
Creative directors Lucie and Luke Meier succeeded in finding harmony among contrasting forces, giving shape to a lineup, which felt personal, distinctive, inventive.
The minimal rigor of sartorial suits, injected with an almost severe, mannish attitude, was counterbalanced by the liquid fluidity of draped dresses with high-neck collars and long sleeves. The conceptual vibe of most intricate constructions and deconstructions, as well as the paper-like feel of textured, more rigid fabrics, were juxtaposed to the desirable, essential approachability of a pleated tunic top with a crisscross detail on the back layered over a matching skirt in a different white tone and the liquid fluidity of a black and blue silk V-neck frock.

EXCLUSIVE: Dior to Publish Book of Photographs by Nikolai Von Bismarck

OUT OF THE SHADOWS: Fashion showgoers may know Nikolai von Bismarck as the boyfriend of Kate Moss. What many don’t realize is that he’s also an accomplished photographer — one who’s about to publish his first book in collaboration with Dior men’s artistic director Kim Jones.
“The Dior Sessions,” published by Rizzoli, charts Jones’ first year at Dior through more than 100 black-and-white portraits of his friends and colleagues. They include Moss and her daughter Lila Grace, A$ AP Rocky, Robert Pattinson, David Beckham, Demi Moore, Eddie Redmayne, Takashi Murakami and Jude Law.
Photographed on film over the course of 12 months and across three continents, the project acts like a snapshot of the era, Dior said in a statement.

“Simultaneously reflecting the present and respecting the past, it holds up a mirror to modern society’s multifaceted nature, in which creatives are multihyphenates and different media — music, fashion, film, art — cross-pollinate and intermingle free of hierarchy,” it said, drawing a parallel with Christian Dior’s relationships with artists.
Jones, meanwhile, described the sitters as “a diverse cross-section of people who do amazing things.”

Giorgio Armani to Release New Handbag

FIRST BAG: Giorgio Armani will unveil a new handbag on Saturday called La Prima, or The First in Italian, as it is in fact modeled after a sleek design Armani created in 1995.
Aiming for a design that his customers would want to wear every day as well as for evening events, the accordion bag was inspired by details of his jackets.
While looking back at the original handbag, Armani developed La Prima with new techniques and hand-stitched, sartorial details.
La Prima includes the classic model with the double bellows on the sides or an updated version, rectangular and larger; two trunks in different sizes, and two shell clutches. The shoulder and tote styles can be handheld or, thanks to the double-slide handle, they can be worn as a cross-body.
The six new bags are available in a soft vegetable calf, in natural hues and in soft palmellato calfskin, spanning 11 colors: white, ice, nude, leather, burgundy, dark brown, black, grass and military green, red and powder blue. For evening, there are variations in lacquer or silk satin, in patent crocodile or lizard. There is also a more eccentric version in patent printed with a tortoise effect.
La Prima will be available in Giorgio Armani

Wright Le Chapelain RTW Spring 2020

In a small alleyway not far from the newly opened Standard hotel near King’s Cross station, Wright Le Chapelain debuted its first on-calendar collection in a refreshing way. Models were doing community work, planting plants and cleaning garbage off the street, instead of standing still against the wall.
Imogen Wright and Vincent Le Chapelain, the duo behind of brand, said this was their way of participating in the circular economy. Showing in a public venue that engages with residents and commuters not only generates zero waste but gives back to society.
The collection worn by these “social workers” is all made in London in collaboration with local tailors and seamstresses. Their thoughtful play on men’s wardrobe classics included a men’s dress shirt reinterpreted as a bias-cut wrap dress, while a check jacket was deconstructed into a panel skirt. 
The two met while studying MA Fashion at Central Saint Martins, and decided to launch a brand together in 2017. It’s still early days, but as more young brands go back to tailoring and aim to dress members of the business world, Wright Le Chapelain might soon start a style evolution with the likes of Eftychia and Peter Do.

J.Lindeberg’s Creative Director Departs Brand

J.Lindeberg has parted ways with its creative director.
Jens Werner, who has been in charge of the design of the Sweden-based men’s label for the past two years, has exited the brand, WWD has learned. The veteran of Adidas and Tory Burch joined J.Lindeberg in fall 2016. For the first year, he was the design director of Sport and Fashion for the label and was elevated in November 2017 to creative director for the entire line. His first collection was for spring 2019.
Werner was brought on board by Stefan Engstrom, a minority owner, who had been chief executive officer at that time. Today, the ceo is Jonas Andersson, who was elevated to that role in December 2018. Andersson, who has been with J.Lindeberg for over seven years, did not respond to requests for comment on Monday about a successor for Werner.
Werner said Andersson is working to reposition the brand, and as a result, their visions did not mesh.
Werner said he had been working to “reshape the brand image and product, drive international awareness, and create new attraction. My brand concept, future archive, has aimed to explain the brand’s history and iconic archive, and my vision for its future. Spread over five

Trendy Gastronomy and Streetwear Cultures Come Together at L.A.’s Family Style Food Fest

“Fashion is something I’ve always loved, and it sounded like such a great opportunity to work with a designer and learn more about their process,” shared famed French chef Ludo Lefebvre of Los Angeles’ beloved Petit Trois. “I was really excited that this food festival is different from all of the others.”
Lefebvre took part in Family Style Food Fest, a one-of-a-kind event that brought together food and streetwear, at Television City Studios in Los Angeles on Sunday. While serving dishes of their choice, chefs and restaurateurs were invited to present limited-edition merchandise they had created in collaboration with streetwear designers. Those in attendance — largely groups of teenagers and families — had direct access to those pieces, which were sold for the first time on site. General admission costs $ 40, while a VIP ticket was $ 120. 
“I think it’s a great idea to bring together these two, great art forms,” continued the chef. “And I think everyone should look fashionable when they eat.”
The festival, attended by more than 3,000 guests (who waited in long lines for a taste of the food and chance to buy goods), was put together by The Hundreds’ Bobby Kim and Ben Shenassafar, who founded the streetwear

Richard Quinn RTW Spring 2020

Lines snaked around the street outside East London’s York Hall, where the spring 2020 Richard Quinn show was set to take place, with guests waiting more than 40 minutes post the scheduled start time to be let in.
“It better be worth it” was the general consensus.
It most definitely was.
The feeling of fantasy and the grandiose were apparent from the moment you set foot in the old sport’s hall, transformed with a big crystal chandelier, blush pink carpet and arrays of flowers, next to which the Philharmonia orchestra was set up to play live.
Richard Quinn’s intention for this event was straight-forward: to put on a real show and encourage his guests to dream during these challenging times. There was no specific muse or philosophical thought process, just fashion for the sake of fashion, in its purest, most artistic form.
He telegraphed his message by dialing up the volume and the glamour, in an even bolder way than previous seasons. He super-sized the bow embellishments or the sleeves on his much-loved puff-sleeve minis; added extra layers of tulle under bold leopard print balloon dresses for an added dose of drama; mixed florals with feathers and piled up the crystals on the trims of

The luxury house launched by Rihanna with LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton will take over Galeries Lafayette Champs-Elysées from Sept. 23 to Oct. 12, bathing its tunnel-like entrance in its signature blue color.
It will mark the brand’s third pop-up worldwide, following a temporary space in the Marais district of Paris for the label’s launch in May and a pop-up in June at The Webster in New York City — and the first time the label has partnered with a department store.
Whether Rihanna will personally inaugurate the space remains to be seen. Fresh off the positive reactions to her Savage x Fenty lingerie show, described as a highlight of New York Fashion Week, the pop star would be certain to trigger a mob scene with a personal appearance at the venue.

Hart Schaffner Marx on Monday signed a new, multiseason partnership with the Chicago White Sox to be the exclusive tailored clothing partner for the baseball team. The Chicago-based company will outfit White Sox players and executives in made-to-measure suits made in its Chicago factory.
The tailored clothing company also released its fall campaign shot at Guaranteed Rate Field, the White Sox’s home since 1991, when it was called Comiskey Park and later U.S. Cellular Field. Photographer Victor Demarchelier captured model Oriol Elcacho in a Hart Schaffner Marx suit, sitting in the bleachers and on the field.
“Bringing together Hart Schaffner Marx and the White Sox, two iconic brands with more than 100 years of history in the city of Chicago, is an exciting feat,” said Jarrod Weber, group president of Lifestyle at Authentic Brands Group, owner of Hart Schaffner Marx. “This partnership celebrates our heritage and unwavering dedication to our craft.”
Brooks Boyer, senior vice president of sales and marketing for the White Sox, added, “The White Sox are honored to team up with the stylish and storied, Hart Schaffner Marx.

Moschino Sets Pre-fall 2020 Show Location

Great minds think alike.
Jeremy Scott will be staging his pre-fall 2020 women’s Moschino show Dec. 9 in the subway. But unlike Tom Ford’s moody spring 2020 extravaganza that had showgoers sitting on the platform of the abandoned Bowery station, Scott’s show will be inside the subway cars at the New York Transit Museum, the country’s largest museum devoted to urban public transportation history.
“I have never had a Moschino show in New York besides H&M and I thought there would be nothing more quintessential New York than the subway,” said Scott, who lived in the city when he attended Parsons School of Design. “I love all the people and characters you experience and the way it’s a melting pot of style. When I was in school, I remember the subway being a spotlight when you were dressed up, because it’s very brightly lit. It’s already like a runway.”

Duro Olowu RTW Spring 2020

In the midst of back-to-back shows, London-based Duro Olowu offered a select few showgoers and friends of his brand, including artists, historians and curators, the opportunity to have a break and view a collection at a very different type of pace.
Taking over a Mayfair town house that resembled a giant cabinet of curiosities, Olowu sat in the living room alongside his guests talking through each garment, as two models took turns showcasing the looks in his spring 2020 collection.
Françoise Gilot — an artist, the former wife of Picasso and “the only one who managed to leave him” — was Olowu’s main point of reference, for the effortless way she carried herself.
He married references to Gilot’s elegant style with the energy of Eighties’ dance-hall music to create a more current look of his own that was luxurious and laid-back.
“I think that if I found myself in Kingston in the Eighties with Françoise Gilot, we’d have a great time,” said Olowu. “She’d make elaborate clothes seem practical and that’s what we tried to achieve here.”
He worked some of the colors and patterns of Gilot’s sketches, drawn during trips to Venice, India and Senegal — into patchwork coats that juxtaposed painterly and non-painterly

Todd Snyder Raises the Bar With His Revamp of Liquor Store Space

NEW YORK — The Liquor Store will always hold a special place in Todd Snyder’s heart. And now, it’ll finally have his name on the storefront.
Snyder was the senior vice president of men’s wear for J. Crew when he transformed the aging storefront of a former liquor store in a landmark building in TriBeCa in 2008 into a stand-alone men’s shop. The store’s heritage-heavy clubby interior not only catapulted J. Crew into the spotlight for its men’s collection — including its poplar Ludlow suit that was introduced at the store — but it also helped put Snyder on the map.
A year after it opened, the designer resigned from J. Crew to create his own label. And while he’s found success with the Todd Snyder brand, he’s never forgotten his experience at the Liquor Store.
Snyder said he first heard the store had closed over the winter when a friend walked by the location and texted him the “For Rent” sign in the window. “I called the number on the sign and went to Westchester to have breakfast with the owner,” he said, adding that the building from 1809 has been in the same family for three generations. “It’s her baby, but when

A.W.A.K.E. Mode RTW Spring 2020

Amid the golden candelabra and incense at St. George’s Bloomsbury church, Natalia Alaverdian presented a cohesive and wearable collection hinged on sharp asymmetric tailoring and the deconstruction of everyday wardrobe staples.
“I wanted to play the contrast between propriety and subversion, and it’s all very subtle,” the designer said. She traded her go-to oversize shirting technique for more structured, feminine silhouettes rendered in black, white and nudes.
Highlights included tailored, waist-nipped jackets with asymmetrical pockets replicated in different fabrics such as crisp cotton and transparent rubber; monochrome tank tops and bustiers made of the bottom half of blazers; and an impeccably constructed long-sleeved dress, whose body-hugging yet monastic allure fit with the location.
Alaverdian balanced structural tops with loose, draped or pleated long skirts and deconstructed pants, often in different fabrics to heighten the contrast. Seductive options came via transparent organdy and draped, silk tops and skirts with raw hems that telegraphed a luxurious yet edgy feeling.
Alaverdian sparked her lineup with some color-blocked looks in bright coral, bubble gum pink, green and baby blue combinations. She could have gone further with the bold color, and nixed the tartan looks.

Beckham’s Blend: Victoria Beckham Cooks Up Two Color-Packed Collections

LONDON — Victoria Beckham is pumping up the volume for spring: She has a ready-to-wear collection that’s packed with voluminous silhouettes and bold colors, and a new, signature color cosmetics offer that shimmers, smokes — and has a sustainable angle, too.
Nothing is stopping Beckham from pressing on with business, certainly not the departure of the company’s chief executive officer Paolo Riva, who left in July after 10 months, for personal reasons.
Ralph Toledano, chairman of the fashion house and acting ceo, said the search continues for Riva’s successor and the company’s strategies are all on track.
“We have the same plan and we’re focused on that,” said Toledano, adding the company was “extremely excited” about the launch this weekend of Victoria Beckham Beauty, a direct-to-consumer brand that will be available at Beckham’s London store on Dover Street, and via the brand’s web site.
“It’s a natural move and she’s personally passionate about it. Going direct-to-consumer was exactly the right strategy for this,” he said.

Goodlife to Open Store, Launch Women’s Wear

It’s been a whirlwind five years for Chris Molnar.
The apparel industry veteran of Michael Kors, John Varvatos and WP Lavori in Corso created Goodlife Clothing in 2014, a men’s premium basics brand whose T-shirts, Henleys and sweats are now sold at all Nordstrom and Trunk Club locations, as well as several specialty stores, a variety of upscale resorts, and online.
But Molnar is now taking the brand into its next phase, opening its first brick-and-mortar store and expanding into women’s wear.
 

Goodlife will enter the women’s business this fall. 

In November, Goodlife will open its first store, at 400 Bleecker Street in the West Village. It will measure around 400 to 500 square feet and will focus on Goodlife’s “hero product,” its premium T-shirts. Although other seasonal merchandise will also be on display in the shop, Molnar said it will be for try-on purposes only. Anyone purchasing the other pieces in-store will have them shipped for free.
“Over 75 percent of our business is our year-round jerseys and terries that are made in L.A.,” Molnar said. “So by focusing on that, we mitigate the risk of having seasonal product on the floor and reduce the inventory we need to carry.”

DVF to Be Inducted Into Women’s Hall of Fame

Diane von Furstenberg is adding another notch to her designer belt.
On Saturday, she will be inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame, alongside Gloria Allred, Angela Davis, Sarah Deer, Jane Fonda, Nicole Malachowski, Rose O’Neill, Louise Slaughter, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Laurie Spiegel and Flossie Wong-Staal.
“I am humbled and honored to be among such incredible women and inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame at the birthplace of the Women’s Rights movement,” said von Furstenberg.
The Women’s Hall of Fame, founded in 1969, is the nation’s oldest membership organization and museum dedicated to honoring and celebrating the achievements of distinguished American woman. The Hall of Fame is located in Seneca Falls, N.Y., the birthplace of women’s rights. The Hall of Fame is in the process of revitalizing the former Seneca Knitting Mill as its new home, with plans to create a state-of-the-art facility serving as a leadership center and education venue to discover stories of great American women.
Von Furstenberg, designer, philanthropist, founder and chairman of the company bearing her name, created the iconic wrap dress in 1974. She served as president of the CFDA from 2006 to 2015 and chairwoman from 2015 to 2019. In 2010, she established

Vivienne Westwood RTW Spring 2020

Activism runs through Vivienne Westwood’s blood, so she wants to use every collection she designs as a platform to broadcast her message.
For spring 2020, the designer released a film to present her collection, in which she speaks of the “rotten economy” and governments’ destructive impacts on the environment. Dressed in a striking jacquard suit from the collection, she is urging her audience to adopt a less-is-more approach.
This attitude runs throughout the collection, which is unisex and tightly edited in a bid to ensure that Westwood practices what she preaches. She has also been working alongside her team to narrow down the collections and by fall 2020, is aiming to reduce the women’s offer by 50 percent and the men’s offer by 30 percent.
When she does put a collection out there, Westwood wants to ensure that it’s worth her customers’ while, creating unique pieces that can’t be found anywhere else and experimenting with cut and construction to eliminate waste during the production process.
For spring 2020 she looked to her favorite character in Comedia Dell’Arte, Pinocchio, and created abstract, round-shaped patterns on suits, cropped tops and loose dresses that came in a riot of bright primary colors, riffing on Pinocchio’s costumes.

A Homecoming, and a New Chapter for Marques’ Almeida

LONDON — A lot has changed for Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida since the arrival of their daughter Maria, and the 300,000 euro cash injection and mentorship they received after winning the second edition of the LVMH Prize.
One thing, however, remains the same. They always spend their summers in Portugal with the family, while supervising the production of the new season’s merchandise. Almost everything from Marques’ Almeida is made in Portugal.
The brand is arguably one of the most successful LVMH Prize winners to date: It boasts 85 stockists worldwide, while a new web site with a better shopping experience, and pre-owned items is set to launch at the end of this month. The brand’s signature distressed denim, oversize down jackets and chunky boots are street style staples widely seen on showgoers.
The couple, who are returning to London Fashion Week after showing in Paris for two seasons, realizes that if they want to sustain growth, the brand needs to do things differently.
Marques’ Almeida dipped into see-now-buy-now with its spring 2019 collection and now the designers want to experiment with a direct-to-consumer approach and to swing the spotlight onto the end consumer. During an interview Marques said she wants to put the focus on

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,

Etro to Take Over Milan’s Bice Restaurant During Fashion Week

CHEZ ETRO: The Etro family knows the art of hospitality.
For the upcoming Milan Fashion Week, the Italian label is partnering with Bice, one of the city’s historical restaurants, setting up the location on Via Borgospesso with flamboyantly decorated items from the brand’s home and textile collection, as well as with pieces from the family’s private collection.
The Etro takeover will run Sept. 16 to 22.
Marking the collaboration, Etro will provide tablecloths decorated with two of its signature prints. They include a cotton fabric featuring the 1981 design called Jais, which is splashed with the paisley motif punctuated by roses and a multicolor, patchwork-style linen cloth dubbed Spring from the 1993 collection. The latter matches checkered patterns with paisley and delicate floral motifs.
Additionally, the Etro family will lend pieces from its private art and furnishing collections, including silver and glass vases, centerpieces and paintings dating back to the 19th century conveying a chic atmosphere.
“Etro is [like] Milan: industrious, reserved, to be discovered and a lover of quality. These are values that our family has always shared with Bice, which for us is like home. A special house that, if possible, we wanted to make even more intimate and welcoming,” said Jacopo Etro,

A.L.C. RTW Spring 2020

“For me, the story is these beautiful acid pastels, a new modern femininity and reinventing favorite classics from safari to a shirtdress,” Andrea Lieberman said of her upbeat spring line rooted in reality.
Upon first glance, the collection appeared colorful and charming, easy and romantic, inclusive of wardrobe enhancers in clean and modern silhouettes. She built up puff sleeves and other sleeve treatments on sweet tops and dresses meant to empower. “There’s something about having some volume in the sleeve. It’s about redefining proportions,” she added. A leather ruched top and flirty skirt set was a great example of how she brought a modern edge to feminine shapes.
Leaning on a thread of playfulness, acidic pastel colors topped tailoring and essential knit tops, while the print of the season was a hand-painted abstract butterfly rendered in two colorways. She riffed on men’s wear stripes in offbeat ways, and injected ease into a safari dress and skirt with soft flounces. Knits, too, were lightweight and fun, and included a beautiful pink pointelle dress and cream crochet set. “For me it’s about taking fabrics that we love, and putting more textural detail onto it. We’re definitely looking for that versatile, effortless moment for our

Revving Up for London Fashion Week With Dilara Findikoglu, Michael Halpern and Richard Quinn

LONDON — Designers Dilara Findikoglu, Michael Halpern and Richard Quinn are some of the most colorful, best-known names on the London Fashion Week schedule, even though their labels are still young.
Known for his colorful prints, big volumes and dramatic runway shows, Quinn is looking to up the ante this season, adding texture to his clothes by turning prints into embroideries and making his silhouettes even more dramatic.
“The show is as important as the set, the music, the choreography. We like having emotion in our shows and actually wanting people to feel something, so hopefully [this season] will have the same effect,” said Quinn.
He’s also putting a focus on creating more couture-like garments that can withstand the test of time. “I’m hopefully turning [my] prints into really extra extravagant and almost archive-like pieces,” he said.
Halpern, too, has been getting experimental with his designs. While he’s known for being a sequin-studded brand, the designer has been introducing new materials to create the same high-shine sequined and glamorous effect.
“It’s been interesting for me to see how to translate that magpie mentality that we have here into something that’s not solely sequins,” said Halpern. He’s been weaving, draping and pleating with lamé to create movement

Bergdorf’s Fetes Jonathan Daniel Pryce’s ‘Garçon Style’ Book

Subjects and friends turned out in force at the Goodman’s men’s store earlier this week to celebrate “Garçon Style,” a new book by award-winning photographer Jonathan Daniel Pryce that chronicles his street-style images. The book offers up nearly 300 photos of men in New York, London, Milan and Paris, a foreword by Sir Paul Smith and a selection of interviews with each of the city’s most stylish men.
Bruce Pask, men’s fashion director of Bergdorf Goodman, said his relationship with Pryce has actually blossomed into a friendship over the years so he wanted to not only help promote the book, but also show off the fall selection in his B. shop on the store’s third floor.
“He’s one of those people that you just enjoy seeing,” Pask said. “His work has an artful character and this book is like an extension of the shop.” In fact, the store reproduced images from the book and “hung them like shingles” on a wall next to the B. shop, providing some interesting visuals on the floor.
And Bergdorf’s is also selling the book. “It’s an easy pick-up item,” Pask said. “It’s a paperback and only $ 30. I love that he’s able to make fashion and photography

Marc Jacobs RTW Spring 2020

In his show notes and during a preview on Wednesday night, Marc Jacobs acknowledged the Sept. 11 anniversary. For anyone who worked in this industry 18 years ago in a show-related capacity, the two are inextricably linked. “Where were you when you heard the news?” The answer is at or en route to a show; working at a show; casting a show, doing something show. (I was traveling down Fifth Avenue to Bryant Park in a taxi and saw the Towers in flames in front of me.) Jacobs heard the news in a phone call from a reporter — myself. He’d slept in since the night before, he’d thrown a huge postshow party on Pier 54 with views of the Towers. In the moment, carefree reverie. In the aftermath — bacchanal before carnage — a stark reminder of how quickly life can change, and of how little control we have of our destinies.
Heavy material in the lead-up to a fashion show (or in a piece about a fashion show), but given the timing of Jacobs’ show and party 18 years ago, it would have been odd for him not to reminisce. He lost a friend in the attacks, David Rivers.

‘Downton Abbey’ Cast Reunite at London Film Premiere

After nearly four years since the TV series ended, “Downton Abbey” is back with its first feature film.
The film’s London premiere on Monday brought together some fan-favorite cast members, including Michelle Dockery dressed in a gold Galvan dress, Elizabeth McGovern in a hot pink Zac Posen dress and Laura Carmichael in a black Monse look.
The “Downton Abbey” film is said to continue the events of the TV series, following the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and its servant staff in the early 20th century. The film begins with a visit from King George V and Queen Mary to the Downton Abbey estate.
While the picture brings back many of the TV show’s favorites, actresses Lily James and Rosamund Pike will not appear in the upcoming film. The film is set to release in the U.S. on Sept. 20.

Monse RTW Spring 2020

Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim went bucolic for spring.
Their inspiration — a farmer’s market — brought a lively sense of serenity into their lineup, which in keeping with the brand’s signature aesthetic played with deconstructions and twisted cuts.
Charming botanical patterns were splashed on the panels of jeans and chinos; printed on silk shirts, and mixed and matched with striped fabrics with a rustic feel for asymmetric dresses.
Perfectly combining a dose of edgy design with a sense of comfort and effortless coolness, the collection also featured gardener-apron-inspired skirts and cutout sweatshirts featuring prints developed in collaboration with Renee’s Garden, a supplier of heirloom and certified organic seeds, international hybrids and open-pollinated varieties.
Tailoring got a fresh makeover with applied utility pockets and intentionally unfinished elements, while jersey evening dresses looked equally chic and comfortable.
Injected with an intriguing sense of escapism, the Monse collection will bring the joy of the countryside to the hippest streets of the world next spring.

EXCLUSIVE: Nick Graham Returning to Joe Boxer as Creative Consultant

Nick Graham has always had a soft spot for Joe Boxer, the underwear brand that put him on the map more than three decades ago. And now, he’s back.
Iconix Brand Group Inc., which purchased the Joe Boxer brand in 2005, has hired Graham as a creative consultant to spearhead a premium collection under the Joe Boxer name that will be targeted to specialty and department stores. The Joe Boxer brand is exclusive to Sears.
This is the second major move that Iconix’s chief executive officer Bob Galvin has masterminded for the company’s brands in the past few weeks. Zoo York, another of its labels, is bringing back its trio of founders to create a special Founders collection for the skateboarding brand this fall.
“I’ve known, followed and admired Nick for a long time,” Galvin said. “He’s a true marketing and creative visionary and he’s providing us with valuable insight that will help us bring Joe Boxer to a new generation. Look at what we’ve done with Zoo York. There’s so much love between these brands and their founders. Nick has so much passion for what Joe Boxer stands for so that’s why we wanted to bring him back.”

Security Detail Was Out in Force for LBV’s Ready-to-Wear Debut

Unlike most fashion company founders, Joss Sackler took her front row seat at the first LBV runway show with two security guards in tow.
The two bulky men, like six or so others stationed on the Bowery Terrace, kept a watchful eye on the crowd and the catwalk. Before the show started, four of them greeted guests outdoors on the sidewalk. The security detail seemed substantial given the relatively compact crowd of 100 or so.  Why the concern? Joss is married to David Sackler, whose family owns Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin. In recent months, consumers have rallied against and, in some instances, sued the prescription drug company for its hand in the opioid crisis, and many have called on cultural institutions supported by the Sackler Foundation and the family’s trust to refuse grants, as was the case with London’s National Portrait Gallery. After its Fifth Avenue location was swarmed with protestors earlier this year, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum said it will not accept future donations from the London-based Sackler Trust. Other institutions have also followed suit.
After the debut of LBV’s ready-to-wear collection Monday afternoon, the LBV founder was only interested in discussing the runway. “I can’t address the

Lela Rose RTW Spring 2020

“Do you like our ‘yellow brick rose?!’” Lela Rose excitedly giggled just before her spring show. The designer was referring to the runway of yellow rose petals, surrounded by white tablecloth-clad little round tables topped with various baked goods. “Café Lela,” as she called it, was set against the backdrop of New York’s cityscape and waterfront on Pier 64. 
The New York City skyline — or rather vintage postcards of the island — served as Rose’s jumping-off point for the collection. The show opened with literal takes — the cityscape printed on a pleated cotton cape-back dress or Central Park splashed across a belted cotton pale-pink number — and ended more abstract, with a layered pale pink over gold tulle gown that emulated the golden hour of sunset. 
Roses came big and small, embroidered or printed onto signature flirty cotton voile — the designer’s favorite fabric of the season — on dresses and sets with overcoats. A lightweight tiered dress with tricolored blooms and curled ruffles made for a strong look. Outside of florals, a navy and white crochet-knit dress with carwash hem felt fresh, while a blue point d’espirit blouson gown conveyed effortless romance and the “celebration of the city in

EXCLUSIVE: AMI to Hold Shanghai Fashion Show 

PARIS — For its first fashion show outside of France, AMI is headed to Shanghai. Signaling a fresh Asian thrust for the brand, the show will be held on Oct. 12, preceded by pop-up stores in Shanghai, Beijing and Chengdu, which will open on Oct. 1.
“We’re heading into our ninth year and the number nine is a lucky number for me so we decided to celebrate this anniversary rather than the 10th,” Alexandre Mattiussi, AMI creative director, told WWD.
Mattiussi, who showed his label’s first collection in January 2011, said the label has a certain resonance in Asia.
“It’s a French designer at an affordable price point,” is how chief executive officer Nicolas Santi-Weil described the label’s positioning. Mattiussi started the label because “he loved beautiful things but he felt a little disconnected with reality because all the garments he was designing were sold at a price point that he could not afford himself,” said Santi-Weil, recalling the designer’s days at Givenchy.  
“AMI is appreciated in Asia because it’s a Parisian postcard,” said Mattiussi. At the same time, he said he might make small adjustments, like changing a fabric or a certain color.

Kurt Cobain Collection Dropping Today

Kurt Cobain may be gone but he’s not forgotten.
The late Nirvana frontman, who took his own life in 1994, was an artist as well as a singer. Today, The End of Music LLC and Live Nation Merchandise will release the Kurt Was Here collection, which is based entirely on Cobain’s artwork.
This lineup of T-shirts and hoodies feature Cobain’s handwritten journal entries, sketches, paintings and drawings. Each item was curated and designed under the creative direction of Frances Bean Cobain, his 27-year-old daughter with Courtney Love.
The collection will be sold at Barneys New York, Selfridges and online. A percentage of the sales from KurtCobainShop.com will be donated to the Jed Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the emotional health and preventing suicide for teens and young adults.
Short-sleeve T-shirts will retail for $ 113, long-sleeves are $ 138 and a hoodie is $ 188.
A coffee table book and limited-edition fine art prints will be offered later this year. And additional product and retailers are expected to be added next year.

Jason Wu Collection RTW Spring 2020

“It’s about beauty. I have never been edgy and cool. I don’t know how to do it. I want to do my best version of beauty,” said Jason Wu backstage at his spring show, held at Pier 17 in a postindustrial venue with large windows offering a spectacular view of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Is there anything wrong with wanting to create beautiful clothes? Not at all. Especially when a designer like Wu succeeds in interpreting what is classic, sophisticated and feminine with a fresh, lively touch. 
This season, Wu wanted to give a different twist to the idea of beauty he normally conveys with his clothes, which usually have a polished, “perfect” look. So he played with hand-washed fabrics, textures, sun-bleached effects, raw cut edges and intentionally unfinished details to give his elegant creations a lived-in, poetic and intriguing vibe.
The mood of slightly decadent romanticism was inspired by the images of fragile, dried flowers of Wu’s friend, photographer Maxime Poiblanc. 
His nocturnal-looking flowers were printed on a washed-silk pencil skirt worn with a coordinated bralette and a lightweight trenchcoat, as well as with an exquisitely draped dress punctuated by tiny crystal embroideries.
Leather was also treated to obtain an imperfect, wrinkled

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Anna’s Family

It started with a forbidden trip to the cafeteria. The unwritten rule at Parsons, back when Anna Sui matriculated, held that design students should not hang out in the lunchroom. “It was considered a bad influence,” Sui recalls, “because you’d mix with everybody else. But guess who was always in the lunchroom?” Rebellious types? Yes. Wildly creative? Yes. Intriguing? You bet. “That’s where I met Steven [Meisel], in the lunchroom.“
Meisel was then a student of the apparently wayward discipline of illustration. After some mess-hall mingling, he invited Sui out dancing that night. She arrived with her then-boyfriend, and Meisel, with “his entourage.” At one point, he beckoned her over to his table and made a suggestion: lose the boyfriend and hang with us. Bye-bye beau, hello lifelong collaborator and friend. “We just started going out every night. My apartment became club central,” Sui says.
The relationship became more than social — Sui would style shoots for Meisel; he encouraged her as she navigated the creation of her own label. That trajectory started with a hiccup: Sui was working for an apparel company called Lenora. Inspired by punk-rock friends who made jewelry that sold at “cool rock stores,” she aspired to the

Adeam RTW Spring 2020

Hanako Maeda’s designs often have a personal connotation, and when conceptualizing her spring outing, she choose the place in Japan her parents are from — Yokohama — a seaside city and one of the first places in the country to open to the west, as inspiration. “It’s similar to Cape Cod in the U.S.,” she said of Yokohama. It’s a place where she spent a lot of time as a child, and judging from her collection, a place that clearly left an imprint on her.
Maeda is a conceptual designer who takes a theme and meditates on it, ushering in new silhouettes and ideas, all variations on her laser-focused ideas. For spring, she expanded on the idea of nautical through her signature East meets West lens.
Several times throughout the show, a piece was shown more than once — for example, a navy chunky knit with a white stripe on the sleeve and flap collar that had a detachable shoulder detail. Once it was shown with the sleeves buttoned up, and then later on in a sandy colorway with the sleeves unbuttoned, forming a new shape. The variations permutated the silhouette, giving her customer a convertibility, another theme she often riffs on.

Mahershala Ali Takes on the Topic of Masculinity at Zegna Event

Ermenegildo Zegna is not afraid of taking on complicated subjects, whether that’s conservation, sustainability or education. And now, the 109-year-old company has turned its attention to defining modern masculinity.
On Thursday night, the Italian luxury brand borrowed a private Upper East Side townhouse to unveil its new communication campaign, What Makes a Man. The ads and videos that ask that question, in hopes of starting a thought-provoking dialogue, feature “Green Book” actor Mahershala Ali. At the event, the Oscar-winning actor sat down with Zegna’s artistic director Alessandro Sartori for a chat to take on the subject.
The conversation was supposed to be moderated by Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, but he was at the U.S. Open watching his wife Serena Williams win her semifinal match.
But the two men managed just fine without him. They started out by reminiscing about how they met three years ago at an event in L.A. when Ali came into the Zegna store for a custom wardrobe. Sartori said he was impressed with how elegant the actor was and how much he knew about fabric, construction and fashion.
Ali said he’d had an interest in fashion since he was a child and one of his earliest memories was “learning how

Cooler September temperatures have made the street style set forgo their traditional summer wear for more layers, including printed suits and matching sets worn in both neutrals and colorful prints. The monochromatic look is also proving to be a favorite, with showgoers gravitating toward greens, purples and pinks.

Tomo Koizumi RTW Spring 2020

What gift can a creative mind give to the world? Answers may be many and very relative. In the case of Tomo Koizumi, his biggest gift to the world is his very unique, extravagant, flamboyant vision, which he brought to the stage for the second time at New York Fashion Week with a performance at the Marc Jacobs store on Madison Avenue.
“The gift from me to the world,” is how the Japanese designer explained the concept behind his presentation, which once again was supported by a stellar team, including Katie Grand, Pat McGrath, Guido Palau and Marc Jacobs, who offered the location. “I had a really big gift by having all these great people involved in my show last season and I wanted to give something back.”
In the basement of the store, a mysterious creature, a sort of glamorous gnome with cone hair and wonderful sparkling makeup, interpreted by transgender model Ariel Nicholson, captured the attention of guests with a dramatic silent play that touched on themes of transformation, love, death, happiness, humor, fatigue, obsession and fear. This catalogue of human emotions, expressed with gestures and poses, was enhanced by the seven giant frilled designs, including gowns, a short frock

Bridget Foley’s Diary Tory Burch: A Woman on the Move

Tory Burch didn’t grow up yearning to be a designer; in college she studied art history rather than fashion. She did grow up conscious of the importance of style, seeing it as representative of, and even integral to, one’s personality. That notion came from her parents, the elegant Buddy and Reva Robinson.
The world in which the Robinsons raised their children pulsed with the elegance of the familiar — pretty, preppy, proper. Burch built her business on an aesthetic that distilled and marketed that orientation. She wanted to address a broad audience, offering obvious good taste of the silky Hermès ilk (her father loved the stuff) but without the stratospheric price tag. A standard concept now, it was quietly subversive among the designer set when Burch established her brand in 2004.
Turns out accessible luxury is but one area in which she was prescient. Other designers who went into business at about the same time were typically younger than Burch, with formal design school training. Often they wanted to launch namesake brands immediately upon graduation. While their aesthetics were often more outré (relatively speaking) and their target markets more luxe-leaning, ironically such designers tended to be more inside-the-box when developing their business

Tadashi Shoji RTW Spring 2020

“Once upon a time in Japan,” exclaimed Tadashi Shoji in the backstage of his runway show revealing the inspiration behind his spring collection. “Everything is about Japan, especially the textiles but also the silhouettes.”
Actually, the designer collected a compilation of Japanese symbols and references, which he used to pepper his signature evening designs. For example, cherry blossoms bloomed on a long-sleeve dress with a sheer detail at the collar and on a brocade gown peppered by asymmetric details and draping.
Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai’s iconic “The Wave” woodblock print popped up on a fluid flounced maxidress and vibrant flowers embellished the hem of a flowing draped gown injected with charming glamour.
Shoji also played with iconic traditional silhouettes, which he updated for modern, chic designs, including the opening pink dress trimmed in black which echoed the shape of a kimono.

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood

“You have to get dressed,” Christopher John Rogers muses on the importance of fashion. Never mind that he has just quoted almost verbatim the legendary New York Times fashion journalist Carrie Donovan, only minus Donovan’s “Well, My Dear…” salutation, and her grand, theatrical delivery.
Rogers radiates an enthusiasm for fashion that Donovan would likely admire. He is one of New York fashion’s current “next generation” celebrated aspirants, determined to find their way in an industry in which roadblocks seem ever more abundant and treacherous. Yet he’s undaunted. “A little delusion is good,” Rogers says. There’s nothing delusional about his buzz factor. On Saturday afternoon at Spring Studios, he will stage his first formal runway show thanks to sponsorship from IMG. He’s a finalist in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund competition, with his next project due in October (no rest for the weary). And tonight he will ring in the official start of the spring 2020 season at Tom Ford’s dinner at Indochine for young designers and international press.

Rhone Seeks to Highlight Outstanding Men in New Outliers Campaign

Rhone has tapped Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor, surfer Garrett McNamara, NFL trainer Tareq Azim and wakeboarder Steel Lafferty to be the faces of its inaugural Outliers campaign.
Nate Checketts, Rhone’s cofounder and chief executive officer, said the company has been hesitant to take the route of many other brands that zero in on an athlete, pay him or her a fee and then hope that person connects with the consumer they’re trying to attract. “We wanted to focus instead on making the best product we could,” he said. “But we found that people want a representation of the embodiment of a brand.”
So he sought out men that he believed excelled at their craft and stood out in their fields. Rather than calling them ambassadors, Rhone opted to borrow a title from the Malcolm Gladwell book “Outliers” about high achievers.
The men will be featured in marketing materials for the brand on its web site as well as through social media and e-mails outreach. They will contribute to the brand’s blog, The Pursuit, where they will share tips and advice to encourage others.
McNamara said he’s been “a longtime fan of Rhone and am honored to partner with a brand that I

Bottega Veneta to Hold First ‘Drop,’ Re-release Sold-out Shoes

This summer gave way to a changing of the guards in modern minimalism, as the popularity of Daniel Lee’s new Bottega Veneta seemed to overtake a mourning for Phoebe Philo’s tenure at Celine.
Lee’s first collection for Bottega began hitting stores in May. Shoes from his inaugural collections became ‘It’ products on social media and quickly sold out — spawning an Instagram fan account, @NewBottega, its name nodding to the popular Philo-Celine memorial account, @OldCeline.
The @NewBottega feed was started by Polimoda student Laura Rossi in late-February, just as @OldCeline’s activity began to peter out, with posts stopping in April.
Now with over 68,000 followers, @NewBottega was only the first sign that Bottega Veneta, which is owned by Kering, is gaining a bit of a hip quotient under Lee’s tutelage. This week the brand will conduct its first “drop,” tapping a style of commerce popularized by the streetwear industry.
On Sunday, Bottega Veneta’s New York City flagship will begin selling a large shipment of shoe styles that are more or less sold out across the U.S. Its stretch pump and stretch sandal styles will again become available in black and white, respectively.
Bottega said that the store, located at 740 Madison Avenue, will close for

Vfiles RTW Spring 2020

Once again fashion and music collided at the energetic Vfiles collective show, which took place on Thursday night at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Performances by Rico Nasty, Erika Jayne and Brooke Candy, as well as YG, animated the event, which was organized in collaboration with London-based marketplace app Depop and which highlighted the talent of the four emerging designers selected from among an international group who submitted their applications this past summer.
The sculptures of artist Anna Uddenberg featuring women who either collapse on their suitcases or writhe out of them served as the starting point for Chinese designer Di Du, who recently graduated from the Royal College of Fine Arts Antwerp. A combination of dreamy, whimsical colors such as lilac and pink mixed with deconstructed lines and silhouettes sat at the core of her collection, which felt like the wardrobe of a space anime’s heroine. Standout pieces included teddy bear cowboy pants matched with an armor-like cutout top, a padded off-the-shoulder bodysuit with exaggerated sleeves, as well as a Seventies net mini frock featuring the halter neck made of a plastic bag handle.
Wesley Harriott’s designer Ricky Harriott, who is based in London, wanted to portray an empowered femininity with his well-executed lineup.

Supreme, OAMC Unveil Collaboration

Supreme reunited with its former design director for its latest collaboration, conscripting Luke Meier of OAMC, the label he launched in 2015 after an eight-year career at the cult streetwear brand.
Meier created a range of military-inspired quilted coat liners overdyed and customized with OAMC’s signature “Peacemaker” logo, in addition to Supreme’s.
Available on OAMC’s online shop, the coat liner retails at 220 euros. All profits  will benefit the Immigrant Families Together charity, a U.S.-based organization which is committed to reuniting children and family members separated at boards.
As of mid-morning, OAMC’s online shop purportedly crashed as it was inaccessible on multiple devices, and Supreme devotees took to OAMC’s Instagram account to report the issue. “This is worse than a Supreme drop,” one user groused about the malfunction.
With its weekly drops, Supreme collaborates with the likes of Nike, Stone Island, Lacoste and Undercover. Among the most sought-after tie-ups, the New York brand partnered with Louis Vuitton in 2017, marking a watershed moment for the streetwear category.
In 2017, Meier took on the creative helm at Jil Sander beside his wife Lucie Meier.

Ermenegildo Zegna Group Takes a New Path

MILAN — Gildo Zegna, chief executive officer of the Italian men’s wear powerhouse Ermenegildo Zegna, is known for being a private man, but he’s decided to take a stance to launch a new communication campaign that will be officially presented in New York on Sept. 5.
Under the hashtag Whatmakesaman, Zegna’s new campaign is actually much more than simply this season’s latest ads: It maps out a new path for the group, which is reaching out to its customers — established and new — to discuss the concept of masculinity. Gildo Zegna appears in a short film discussing the manifesto.
“I believe in this new form of dialogue and direct conversation with our customers through social media, which starts from asking questions, as we do not offer clear-cut answers,” said the executive in an interview in his office here.
“What makes a man? There isn’t a single answer to this question, as the world and the concept of masculinity continue to change in a fluid way. Asking questions is the best way to start a conversation. How much do men talk of love or failure? They tend to speak of sports, success, cars, watches, art, travels, business and discipline,” he contended.

Tresemmé Teams With Designers to Tackle Fashion’s Gender Leadership Gap

Tresemmé, the longtime official hair sponsor of New York Fashion Week, is taking steps to make its relationship with the shows a more meaningful one.
The Unilever-owned, mass market hair brand has teamed with fashion designers and Vital Voices Global Partnership to launch its #WomenLeadTheWay pledge, a commitment to help advance women in the fashion industry into leadership positions. Co-signed by designers and fashion labels such as Rebecca Minkoff, Jason Wu, Cushnie, Jonathan Simkhai and Studio One Eighty Nine, the announcement will be made public in a full-page ad in The New York Times on Sept. 5, the first official day of NYFW, WWD has learned.
The brand hopes to set an example by establishing and funding its own formal mentorship program within Unilever.
“As the official hair-care sponsor of New York Fashion Week for the past two decades, we want to use this platform as a way to make a change in the fashion and beauty industries,” said Jessica Grigoriou, brand engagement director for Tresemmé, noting the brand “prioritizes” partnering with hairstylists, designers and influencers “who are committed to supporting women on and off the runways” during fashion week.”

Red Valentino RTW Spring 2020

Pierpaolo Piccioli captured the most immediate and lively spirit of a never-ending summer with his charming collection for the Red Valentino brand.
Delicacy and femininity joined a chic metropolitan appeal in the fresh eyelet pieces, spanning from miniskirts worn with cropped matching blouses to generously cut parkas paired with lace bottoms. Mainly worked in black and white, the chic cotton style also welcomed bright accents, including the vivid red of a pretty halter neck dress enriched by floral white embroideries.
An exotic note was introduced via the vibrant prints of tropical flowers and birds splashed on flowing frocks and pajama sets, while butterfly-shaped patchwork details added a cute touch to denim designs, such as a slipdress and a jumpsuit revealing an exposed back and ruffled embellishments at the shoulders.
The brand’s signature craftsmanship stood out on cotton crochet skirts and bikinis, exuding a free-spirited, boho-chic vibe.
Versatile at heart, the lineup offered plenty of options for the Red Valentino girls, who next summer will also have the chance to shine bright at pool parties thanks to the allover sequined frocks — their hyper-feminine appeal exalted by romantic bow ties.

Louis Vuitton Collaborates With Artist Jonas Wood

Louis Vuitton, though based in Paris, will not sit out this New York Fashion Week. The maison will launch a textile collaboration with American artist Jonas Wood on Sept. 6, with the collection hitting stores worldwide by Sept 12.
Wood — who is known for colorful prints and paintings — has helped develop graphic shawls, silk scarves and stoles in wool and silk for Vuitton.

Vuitton said its partnership with Wood represents the latest textile tie-up with a fine artist, the last being contemporary sculptor and painter, Alex Israel. Vuitton has also in the past collaborated with Sol LeWitt, James Rosenquist, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Stephen Sprouse and Yayoi Kusama, among others.

Alife Talks 20 Years, Lee Jeans Collab and Future

Alife is hitting the reset button in its 20th year in business.
Since Rob Cristofaro founded the brand in 1999, Alife has been a popular name among New York City’s skaters, ball players and the streetwear community. The brand was one of the first in that market to introduce collaborations and a footwear collection and now, Alife is ringing in 20 years with renewed energy.
“We haven’t ever done an anniversary or really put much energy behind any of the anniversaries that we’ve had,” said Cristofaro. “What you’ll start seeing from the 20th anniversary onward is the culmination of consistent releases, launches, projects and executions.”
The New York City-based brand last year launched collaboration footwear with Crocs and this year released a capsule collection with the Brooklyn Museum and artist Faith Ringgold. The company is relaunching footwear in October, and also this fall will offer a new collaboration with Lee Jeans, extend its partnership with Adidas, and work with the Bronx Museum of the Arts for its upcoming exhibition on photographer Henry Chalfant titled “Henry Chalfant: Art vs. Transit, 1977-1987.”

Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Fashion Show Celebrated in Rizzoli Book

Karl Lagerfeld’s most fantastical Chanel fashion show sets are the subject of the upcoming Rizzoli book “Lagerfeld: The Chanel Shows.”
A collection of images by English photographer Simon Procter, the book documents many of the late Chanel designer’s runways from the last 10 years, including his very last collection for the fall 2019 ready-to-wear season — shown at the Grand Palais, designed to resemble a snowy Alpine ski resort — two weeks after his death.

“Lagerfeld: The Chanel Shows” book cover 
Simon Procter/Rizzoli

As Lagerfeld once stated, his set design ideas would come to him in his sleep. Procter’s images reflect the grandeur of these sets, including when the Grand Palais was transformed into a tropical beach, a 100-foot-high waterfall and a rocket ship, to name a few.
Procter also gives a behind-the-scenes look at many of Lagerfeld’s shows, documenting intimate moments between the designer and his model muses.
“I was lucky enough to meet him many times over the years; it was always a delight and we always did great work,” Procter writes in the book’s preface. “The two things I remember most were that he always personally greeted everyone in the room. The other, that he was very, very funny. Many times whoever was

Destination XL Breaks Even in Second Quarter

Blame it on the weather.
Destination XL Group Inc., the country’s largest big and tall men’s retailer, reported Wednesday that it managed to cut its losses in the second quarter, but weather woes caused comparable-store sales to be flat and overall sales to tick up only a modest 0.9 percent to $ 122.2 million.
The Canton, Mass.-based specialty store chain broke even in terms of net income, as compared to a loss of $ 1.2 million in the same period last year. The prior year’s loss included a restructuring charge of $ 1.6 million. Adjusted EBITDA was down, falling to $ 7.1 million from $ 8.7 million in the second quarter of last year.
Harvey Kanter, the company’s newly named president and chief executive officer, said: “The second quarter got off to a slow start as unfavorable weather impacted sell-through of seasonal product.” Even so, Kanter said results improved as the quarter progressed and the period ended with a “slightly positive comp trend.” The company’s wholesale business also improved in the period, he said.
Kanter reiterated the company’s ongoing strategic initiatives, which include “engaging with our customers in a more meaningful and personalized way from a digital standpoint, better defining and developing our working marketing plans, improving our e-commerce

Mvmt Collaborates With Artist Jeff Cole, Skateboarder Nyjah Huston

Mvmt is spreading its design wings. The Millennial-founded watch brand will introduce collaborations with digital artist Jeff Cole as well as top competitive skateboarder Nyjah Huston. They represent the brand’s first partnerships with an artist and professional athlete.
Both figures have put their own spin on Mvmt’s designs. Cole — whose graphic work has earned him more than 500,000 Instagram followers — sprung for a black and chrome motif with minimal face details. The style will launch on Sept. 4, priced at $ 180.
Huston — who is expected to compete at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo — incorporated some of his own tattoo designs into his Mvmt watch. The style is tentatively scheduled to launch on Oct. 15 and has not yet been priced.
“This is an opportunity to give [Cole and Huston] a chance to express themselves, it’s Mvmt but with their twist. I think with Cole, specifically, having that digital expertise made him even more hands-on. He took the reins and was very opinionated in every piece of the process,” said Mvmt cofounder Jake Kassan.

L’eggs Celebrates 50 Years Supporting Women

L’eggs is turning 50. 
And while the hosiery brand may have reached semi-centennial status, its style isn’t sagging. In fact, the pantyhose are still gracing millions of women’s legs around the world. Cathleen Moxham, lead designer at L’eggs, contends the brand only gets better with age. 
“L’eggs came into the market place to bring to women affordable, stylish, quality hosiery that was convenient,” Moxham told WWD. “Fast forward 50 years, in terms of a world that is about the importance of health and wellness, and that has not changed. The DNA has not changed.”

Sheer Energy is L’eggs most popular style. 
Courtesy

L’eggs, under parent company Hanesbrands, made its debut in September 1969. Aside from the distinctive packaging⁠ — an egg-shaped box because “egg” is part of the word “L’eggs” — and the catchy slogan — “Nothing beats a good pair of L’eggs” — the product was also revolutionary in that it was the first time pantyhose could be found at supermarkets and drugstores. Until then, women were limited to department stores to fulfill their hosiery needs, which was often time consuming. 
With L’eggs, suddenly women could buy a pair⁠ — or two or three⁠ — while purchasing groceries or other essential toiletries. Sales rose quickly.

What to Watch: Solving the Sizing Dilemma

One size certainly does not fit all. In fact, it often fits no one.
Sizing is a perpetual problem in the apparel industry with a lack of consistency rampant among the different brands. Much of the data used by apparel firms to create their lines is based on measurements that are decades old and no longer applicable to today’s body types.
BodyBlock AI, which uses 3-D body and consumer data to provide insight on more-accurate sizing, estimates that 80 percent of sizes do not actually fit the general population.
Kirk Keel believes the number is even higher than that.
The cofounder and co-chief executive officer of Stantt said his research found the number is closer to 85 percent. “We built a company off of that,” he said.
Seven years ago, he and Matt Hornbuckle founded the made-to-measure men’s shirt brand, which uses proprietary technology to offer “a hybrid option between off-the-rack and full custom that offers the benefits of each.”
Stantt offers 99 sizes of shirts and uses an algorithm that requires only three measurements to create a custom fit. Once the fit is determined, the fabric, collar, cuff and button options are chosen and the shirt is manufactured and delivered within seven days at an

Namesake Is Now Letting You Customize Your Leather Jacket Online

Last November, Rosa Halpern, founder of Canadian fashion brand Namesake, launched an innovative digital-meets-custom try-at-home platform for her bespoke leather jackets. Today, Halpern debuts not only a redesigned, interactive e-commerce site, but also a men’s collection and women’s customizable leather pants. 
Since April, the designer has been digitally rendering her designs and developing the web site to offer an easy-to-use, customizable platform that enables her customer to design their dream jacket or pant from the comfort of their own screen. Like Halpern’s in-person bespoke process, customers can choose the base fabric and color of their jacket and customize every detail, from hardware and lining colors to additional lace-up, fur collar or belted details. The brand’s new e-commerce site offers thousands of combinations of designs, whereas the old web site only offered a selection of 25 to 30 styles.
“I think that the try-at-home was our first tip-toe into merging digital with bespoke, and now with this, we’re nailing it…it’s layering components together. To allow people globally to understand what we’re doing, this has to exist,” Halpern described during a preview, adding, “It’s more than just online, it’s a tool for language around this. When you talk custom, the sky’s the limit.”

Organic and Passionate: Honey Dijon on Working With Comme des Garçons

BERLIN — Sometimes being a super fan does pay off. Honey Dijon, one of the fashion world’s favorite DJs, is living proof — she’s about to launch her own line of apparel and accessories in collaboration with Comme des Garçons, and, as she explained, it’s all happening because she’s just a big fan.
“You know, this is probably going to sound very Barbra Streisand, but I sometimes feel like everything I have manifested in my life is because I was a fan of it,” Dijon told WWD. “I think when you deeply love something, you put yourself in places and situations by sheer force of will, because you want to be surrounded by those people.”
Dijon described Comme des Garçons as “one of the most forward-thinking [brands] in the world” and with its help, she has created a series of premium T-shirts and accessories; the latter includes the kinds of leatherwear any music lover would covet, including three wallets, headphone and USB stick carriers, as well as record bags. Dijon described the small range as “utilitarian and aesthetically pleasing” and it will be available first at the Comme des Garçons-owned Dover Street Market stores. The products will retail for between $ 80 and

What to Watch: More Tailored Aesthetic Hitting Men’s Stores for Fall

Fall is coming, and with it, men will be leaving their shorts and flip-flops in the back of the closet — and this year reaching for a blazer.
Although streetwear and ath-leisurewear have been all the rage in the men’s market for the past few years, the pendulum has begun to swing back in the other direction. The first hint came during the fall runway shows in Europe last January when there was an undeniable shift toward a more dressed-up aesthetic. Those looks are just now hitting the retail floors, raising the spirits of merchants who have historically built their businesses on the back of men’s suits and sport coats.
Although their expectations are high, stores also realize they can’t just hang a sea of navy, black and gray suits interspersed with the occasional patterned sport coat on their floors any more and expect them to sell. Streetwear and activewear have had an indelible impact on the industry and men are not looking for their father’s — or even their grandfather’s — suits. Guys have gotten used to be being comfortable and they’re searching for features that will let them move while keeping them cool and dry.

Pink Shirtmaker Taps Matthew Goode as Brand Ambassador

LONDON — British actor Matthew Goode is the new face of the re-branded Pink Shirtmaker, previously known as Thomas Pink.
He is featured in the brand’s fall 2019 campaign, debuted on The Curve, London’s iconic Piccadilly Circus display screen, on Monday.
Christopher Zanardi-Landi, president and  chief executive officer of the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned men’s wear brand, said “The Crown” and “Downton Abbey” actor “embodies not only the Englishness of Pink and the sharpness of our cut, but also the sense of humor that’s deep in our veins.”
Pink also introduced its first bespoke line, with a new workshop in Vauxhall in London as a part of the relaunch.

Creative director John Ray, formerly creative director at Dunhill, also created the “smart shirt collection,” designed to be worn from day to evening, tucked in or worn loose.
Founded in 1984 by the Mullen brothers in London’s Chelsea, the brand offered a solution for the young men in the workplace back then who were looking for a classic shirt priced between the High Street and bespoke. LVMH purchased 70 percent of the shares in 1999 for around 48 million euros and bought the remaining 30 percent of the

Borsalino Taps Diverse Cast for Fall Ad Campaign

Borsalino’s new course is well afoot.
A year after its new owner, private equity group Haeres Equita, took full control of the Alessandria, Italy-based hatmaker, the company is unveiling an ad campaign for fall fronted by a cast of young and diverse faces that includes transgender model Valentina Sampaio.
Lensed by Italian photographer Joseph Cardo, the images blend photography with painting as hand-painted floral motifs are superimposed onto the pictures.
Models were captured in relaxed poses against a lacquered red door and raw canvases. In particular, Sampaio sits on a stool, sporting a distinctly Parisian outfit to match a blue bowler hat. The 22-year-old Brazilian model and actress has been in the news as of late after she was reportedly hired by Victoria’s Secret, drawing a strong, positive reaction on social media.
Other talents include German model Franzi Mueller, Seoul-native J Moon and U.S.-based Allen Haygood, among others.

A picture from the Borsalino fall 2019 ad campaign. 

The campaign was art directed by Giacomo Santucci, a fashion veteran and former Gucci executive, who’s a member of Borsalino’s steering committee and serves as the brand’s creative curator.
“My intention when it comes to photography is to elevate the medium to the level of other art forms,” Santucci said.

What to Watch: Cactus Plant Flea Market and Who Decides War Taking Streetwear Forward

Now is as good a time as ever to know the names Cactus Plant Flea Market and Everard Best.
The streetwear brand and the New York City-based designer have been separately building solid followings and are seen transcending the streetwear world and crossing into mainstream fashion at a time when designers and retailers may be experiencing streetwear fatigue.
First, the two are far from new, and second, they hit several marks expected to propel them forward.
Cactus Plant Flea Market is a mysterious streetwear brand founded by Cynthia Lu with an origin that dates back to 2015. Lu, who worked closely with Pharrell Williams at Billionaire Boys Club and at the artist’s multimedia creative collective I Am Other, produces graphic T-shirts, hoodies, and accessories that are favored by the Grammy Award-winning producer, along with Travis Scott, Tyler the Creator, and Kanye West.
The brand is carried at Dover Street Market in New York City, and this year launched collaborations with Stussy, Anti Social Social Club, with Kid Cudi for Coachella and took part in Nordstrom’s Union & Company pop-up.
Nike also collaborated with Cactus Plant Flea Market on Air Vapormax sneakers for women for Air Max Day 2019, and a Nike Blazer, dubbed the “Sponge,”

Inside Sporting Kansas City and Bldwn’s Capsule Collection

Bldwn, an American fashion brand, is collaborating with Kansas City’s Major League Soccer team, Sporting Kansas City, on a limited-edition collection that takes you right to left field.
“We want to tell our local story on a global stage. We have a passion for fashion and sports, so we want to push the boundaries of what this type of collaboration can do to bring people together,” said John Moncke, vice president of brand revenue and stadium at Sporting Kansas City. “Sporting and Bldwn began in KC, and we’re both representing the local area far beyond.”
The partnership was a special connection from the beginning, with Bldwn and Sporting Kansas City desiring to place the fan, who may also be a customer, at the heart of local sports culture.
“I’ve known Matt Baldwin [founder of Bldwn], and the collaboration has happened behind the scenes for a long time. I’ve picked his brain about things like our uniform design to branded events that we have hosted for fans,” Moncke added. “One of our conversations even led to building a soccer field on the roof of a building for an event a few years ago.”

The Only Agency Opens London Office

Management company The Only Agency has opened a London office to expand its presence from New York and L.A. to Europe. The agency, which represents hairstylists, makeup artists and fashion stylists, has a roster that includes Law Roach, Maeve Reilly, Erica Cloud, Cristina Ehrlich, B Akerlund, Fabio Immediato, Joey Maalouf and more.
“Working with such a vast group of celebrity talent and visionaries, The Only Agency has always had an international presence. Thus, it was only a matter of time that we established a global home base for our talent and expanded our brand internationally,” said founder Kent Belden. “When deciding where this expansion would take place, London immediately came to mind as one of the top fashion and media hubs of Europe. In addition to London being an incubator to some of the most inspiring talent in the world, the combination of London’s proximity/accessibility to the crux of the European market, it’s lively energy, and creative nature, made opening an office there the logical next step.”
The office has four full-time team members, and talent is already working with celebrities including Maisie Williams and the Spice Girls.

What to Watch: Men’s Wear Online Sales Have Grip, Customers’ Habits Shift

What men want is the holy grail online retailers are trying to figure out in order to better cater to their male audience, which is evolving fast — and growing even faster.
According to market search firm Euromonitor International, global sales of men’s fashion, including apparel and footwear both online and off-line, are poised to generate revenues this year of $ 452.47 billion versus $ 440.24 billion in 2018, with sales in 2020 expected to climb to an estimated $ 473.86 billion.
Munich-based retailer Mytheresa is the latest to dive into the fray by kicking off a men’s section in January, while Moda Operandi entered the market last year. Mr Porter — launched in 2011 — introduced its own label, Mr P, in 2017 and Matchesfashion.com has been ramping up exclusive men’s wear drops and capsules with international luxury labels.
Customers’ rapidly changing purchasing habits and craving for fresh product are pushing online fashion destinations to constantly adapt in a bid to stay relevant.
“The men’s wear consumer is constantly evolving, he is far more sophisticated and braver in his style and online purchases than he used to be,” said Fiona Firth, buying director at Mr Porter.
“They are less risk averse and certainly quicker to purchase items.

Levi Strauss Exhibition Coming to San Francisco Museum in 2020

Storied American jeans maker Levi’s will be the subject of an exhibition opening next year in San Francisco.
“Levi Strauss: A History of American Style,” on view Feb. 13 to Aug. 9, 2020 at The Contemporary Jewish Museum, will be the largest public display of Levi Strauss & Co.’s archival materials ever assembled. Featuring more than 150 items (including vintage apparel and advertising materials, as well as ephemera related to the life of Levi Strauss the man), the exhibition will showcase the story of the Bavarian Jewish dry goods merchant in 19th-century San Francisco, the birth of his iconic blue jeans and its influence on American style and identity, according to press materials.
The museum’s curators worked with the brand to mine pieces from the Levi Strauss & Co. archives, located at the company’s headquarters in San Francisco.
In 1873, near the end of the Gold Rush, Levi Strauss obtained a U.S. patent with tailor Jacob Davis for the process of putting metal rivets in men’s work pants to increase their durability. Strauss’ civic and philanthropic contributions were fundamental to San Francisco’s municipal development, the exhibition will show, and the trajectory of the brand has reflected the changing American consciousness, from its initial

Miu Miu’s Latest Women’s Tales Film to Focus on Brigitte Lacombe

BRIGITTE ON CAMERA: Miu Miu will present its 18th short film as part of the Women’s Tales series in Venice on Sept. 1 during the city’s International Film Festival.
Dubbed “Brigitte,” the latest installment of the series focuses on photographer and longtime Miu Miu and Prada collaborator Brigitte Lacombe, offering insight into her creative process at work.
Set in a hydraulic factory in London, the short film is directed by Scottish filmmaker Lynne Ramsay, whose most recent feature “You Were Never Really Here” starring Joaquin Phoenix won the Best Screenplay and Best Actor awards at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017.
In the short film, which is shot in a deep monochrome mood, Lacombe discusses her life and ideas with Ramsay, while people close to the photographer make an appearance, including her sister Marian.
Approached by Ramsay with the idea of a documentary, Lacombe said she “absolutely wanted to be a part of it. And I always saw this as a collaboration.…I knew I wanted at the end to turn the camera on Lynne.”
“I hate having my photo taken. Brigitte [Lacombe] was the first person who captured me,” echoed Ramsay, who originally trained as a stills photographer. “She cast a magic spell. I wondered:

Olivia Palermo Launches E-commerce Platform, Hints at Future Label

Olivia Palermo has her sights set on the future of fashion.
The entrepreneur has spent the past decade studying the ins and outs of the industry. Once a member of Diane von Furstenberg’s public relations department, Palermo has blossomed from street style star to fashion authority, transcending the typical restraints of reality television to ultimately earn the respect of some of fashion’s icons.
A week before his death, Karl Lagerfeld revealed that he had chosen Palermo to co-design and style a collection for his namesake label. The collaboration officially released in June and is one of the first to be sold on Palermo’s new e-commerce and editorial platform.
The online boutique will bow on Sept. 3 with select products from a total of 25 brands. The platform is a culmination of Palermo’s style expertise and designer connections. To date, she has created and collaborated on 10 fashion collections — including ones with Banana Republic, Nordstrom and Aquazzura — and has driven a total of $ 19 million in sales. As she intimated to WWD, she is also contemplating a fashion label of her own.

What to Watch: Tailored Brands Is Showing Signs of Improvement

There are green shoots beginning to emerge for Tailored Brands.
Earlier this month, the country’s largest men’s-only public retailer raised its projections for the second fiscal quarter, which will be released on Sept. 11. It now expects net sales in the range of $ 787 million to $ 789 million, GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of 64 cents to 66 cents and adjusted diluted EPS in the range of 78 cents to 80 cents, which is above the projections made on June 12 of adjusted EPS of 65 cents to 70 cents.
This is the first positive sign that the new management team is having an effect on a business that has been under strain since paying a whopping $ 1.8 billion to buy Jos. A. Bank in 2014, saddling the company with debt. Add to that a shift in the men’s market with tailored clothing — Tailored Brands’ bread and butter — undergoing a precipitous decline in favor of streetwear and athletic wear.
In the past year, the once high-flying company has seen most of its top executives exit and a new slate of officers at the helm. In March, Dinesh Lathi was elevated to chief executive officer, replacing longtime chief Doug

First Look: Hugo Boss Capsule Collection by Leading Industrial Designer Konstantin Grcic

Hugo Boss has collaborated with Konstantin Grcic, one of Germany’s most influential industrial designers, on a limited capsule collection for fall 2019.
Grcic’s award-winning work in seating and lighting is featured in the permanent collections of the world’s leading museums, including MoMA in New York and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris; in 2010, he was named designer of the year at Design Miami. Over his almost three-decades-long career, Grcic is perhaps best known for his focus on utility and simplicity — high fashion seems rather a long way from his usual remit.
But not at all, Grcic told WWD as he showed off his Boss capsule collection in his airy Berlin studio, a converted factory floor with large windows and long white desks. “Beauty has a function, too,” he explained. “And if things are only practical, and not appealing, then you have a very different relationship to those objects.
“I don’t want to stretch the metaphor too far but chairs come close to something that we almost wear,” he added. Grcic’s chairs have won design prizes and several feature in museum collections. “So it’s not a completely strange world to me.”
This isn’t his first tie-up with a fashion brand either: In the

Henning, a Plus-Size Tailored Collection, Will Be Introduced Online Sept. 3

Lauren Chan, a former plus-size model with Ford Models and a fashion features editor at Glamour, is making the leap into fashion design. She will launch an online plus-size collection called Henning on Sept. 3 on the brand’s web site, henningNYC.com.
Chan has worked on the business for over a year, having started her research in spring 2018. She did the designing herself and conducted focus groups in the beginning to see what people would like to buy.
For the fall launch, she is offering 10 styles in sizes 12 to 24. Fabrics come from the U.S., and everything is made in New York.
“It’s all very men’s wear inspired, which is a personal preference of mine,” said Chan, who herself is now a size 14, having been up to a size 20 in her life. While she has no formal design training, Chan designed the line for Glamour x Lane Bryant and did 10 collections. “That was my first foray into product,” she said.
The Canadian-born Chan was signed to Ford Models’ plus-size division right after she graduated from college. She also did freelance writing and several years later, landed at Glamour. She spent three years there as fashion features editor, and left

EXCLUSIVE: Telfar to Show Film in NYC, Runway in Paris

Telfar is heading to Paris.
The New York City-based designer will present his next runway show on Sept. 23 to open Paris Fashion Week. He won’t leave New York City empty-handed though — the brand will present a film on Sept. 6 featuring a collective of directors and writers including Petra Collins, Ryan Trecartin, Steve Lacy, Clayton Vomero, Ian Isiah, TORSO, Diamond Stingley, Juliana Huxtable, Jeremy O. Harris, Kelsey Lu, and others.
The nonlinear format film was shot in New York, Los Angeles, Ohio, and Paris among others.
“We think we are doing this out of necessity,” said designer Telfar Clemens. “I think it’s good for fashion as a whole to rethink how it works. This is really just an experiment happening live.”
Telfar was established in 2005, although the designer had been producing nongendered clothing since 2002.
In 2017, he collaborated with White Castle on a capsule collection after hosting his runway show afterparty at the fast food chain’s Times Square location in 2015. He won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in the same year and was awarded $ 400,000, and in 2019 was a CFDA Award nominee for Accessory Designer of the Year.

His legendary fashion career was ignited by an award. In his twilight years, he acted as a judge for the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers, leaving most contenders starstruck.
And now he will be immortalized with a fashion prize in his name. LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton confirmed exclusively to WWD that its Special Prize will henceforth

Belstaff To Relocate to Regent Street With New Retail Concept

LONDON – Belstaff is changing postcodes and moving its flagship store from Bond Street to Regent Street. Opening in September, the move comes as part of the brand’s new ‘community-first’ retail concept, which they debuted in February in its new Spitalfields store.
“With our new vision for store design and a community building focus, we felt it was time for a move. The store environment is part of a holistic approach to revitalising this great British heritage brand. It is a customer-first approach to ensure our stores are inclusive, approachable and inspiring spaces for our community,” said Helen Wright, ceo of Belstaff.
The retail concept, designed by Brinkworth, will be a reflection of the brand’s Stoke-on-Trent origins. The 2077 square feet store will feature brass fittings, a timber stairwell and leather selves as well as a cotton canopy ceiling.
Customers will also be able to get their Belstaff purchases repaired and restored at a waxing station located on the ground floor. Belstaff will also offer classes for the customers to show how to take care of their waxed cotton and leather clothes.
With these new store additions, Belstaff hopes to engage meaningfully with their customers. The retailer hops to host panels, special screenings and podcast recordings

While many of her fashion blogger contemporaries are boosting their personal brands by launching their own labels through online retailers — a trend as of late — Jacey Duprie of Damsel in Dior is showcasing her virtual world “IRL” with a brick-and-mortar location this fall.
“I want to get it open, like, yesterday,” said Duprie inside Platform, the trendy shopping project in Culver City and location of her pop-up, By Damsel. The two-month lease, with the option to extend, starts Nov. 1. “As soon as we can get in there, get it painted, get set up, we’re open.”

The Paris-based brand revealed exclusively to WWD the launch of a handbag collection, Zadig & Voltaire x Kate Moss, bowing Sept. 26, a day after the label’s runway show at the Ritz in Paris. (The location was chosen because it was one of the supermodel’s haunts.)
“The primary reason for partnering with Kate was to work with her creatively on developing a new line of handbags. And so this is what they’ve done,” said Christopher Tate, chief executive officer of Zadig & Voltaire, North America, and a board member at the company. “[Cecilia and Kate] were models around the same time and sort of grew up in the industry together, so it’s not a new relationship. This is the first time they’re working together at Zadig & Voltaire in the context of collaborating on products.”
“She was a customer of Zadig & Voltaire — her daughter loves our T-shirts, and we had some friends in common, so we were linked. But then, she’s such a superstar, it’s not like I’m going to hang out with her everyday,” said creative director Cecilia Bönström. “I admired from afar. But then, she’s been a busy girl, you know.

Rolling Stones Retail Experience Pops Up at Maxfield L.A.

A tongues-and-lips logo Artipoppe baby carrier, Bird scooter and Ladurée macarons can be yours at the new Rolling Stones x Bravado pop-up shop at Maxfield L.A. this week.
Timed to the band’s “No Filter” tour, which stops at the Rose Bowl on Aug. 22, when half of Hollywood is expected to rock out, the store features an assortment curated by Sarah Andelman of Paris boutique Colette and the consulting company, Just an Idea bringing together special products inspired by and celebrating The Rolling Stones, including Cactus Plant Flea Market T-shirts with the new barbed wire tongue-and-lips logo, Edward Bess lipsticks, Casetify Iphone cases, Yeti coolers and more.
L.A.-based multimedia artist Matt McCormick, who draws inspiration from Western Americana, painted the installation that resides in Maxfield’s pop-up space across the street from the flagship. And there are plenty of gigantic fiberglass lip sculptures for Insta moments, of course. The multicity experience, which kicked off last month at Bergdorf Goodman, is the brainchild of Universal Music Group’s Bravado merchandising arm.
The pop-up is open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Saturday, Aug. 24, at 8825 Melrose Avenue.

First Lady Melania Trump Shops in Her Closet for G7 Arrival Look, But Wears Gucci for Dinner with the Macrons

SUNNY SIDE UP: In light of the increasingly fractured and troubled state of geopolitics, key world leaders have countless conundrums to deal with at the G7 Summit in Biarritz. Trade, climate change, Middle East tensions, Iran’s seizure of foreign ships and wariness of a worldwide recession based on warning signs in Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. are among the many points of concern. While the powers that will be locked in meetings for much of the weekend, their respective better halves understand how their secondary roles can potentially offer some much needed levity.
Perhaps that’s the reason that First Lady Melania Trump exited Air Force One upon arriving in France, wearing a bright yellow and white Calvin Klein dress Saturday. The sleeveless style was a throwback look that had been designed by Raf Simons. Management at Calvin Klein’s parent company PVH parted ways with him at the end of last year but FLOTUS remains a fan. (Simons is back in his native Belgium designing his own collection and he collaborated with the outerwear label Templa.) Trump has worn his designs for Calvin Klein for other occasions such as an outing during last summer’s NATO’s Summit.
The First Lady also took something from

Chiara Ferragni Named Guest Editor of Upcoming Grazia Italia Issue

FERRAGNI-FICATION: It seems the world can’t have enough of Chiara Ferragni.
Exactly a year after hosting the pop version of a royal wedding, the personality behind The Blonde Salad digital platform and the Chiara Ferragni Collection footwear and accessories label will once again mirror Meghan Markle assuming the role of guest editor in chief for a magazine.
Instead of Vogue, Ferragni will curate the upcoming edition of weekly magazine Grazia Italia, which will hit newsstands on Aug. 29. This is the first time the publication names a guest editor.
Ferragni broke the news on Thursday via Instagram. In a range of Instagram Stories, she revealed the issue will be “all about inspiring women, diversity, cyberbullying” and other matters close to her heart and that could inspire her 17.2 million followers.
“I want to dedicate this issue to my followers that have been my strength and super-loyal during the years,” she added before thanking Grazia Italia’s editor in chief Silvia Grilli for the opportunity and for being “a big support for me since the beginning.”
On her hand, Grilli teased the collaboration in the magazine’s current issue, released on Thursday. In her editor’s letter she defined Ferragni as “one of the firsts to understand the potentiality of

Designers & Agents Trade Show Founder Pivots to Cannabis With The Plant Lore Agency

After more than three decades in the fashion industry, most notably as the cofounder of the Designers & Agents trade show, Barbara Kramer is pivoting to cannabis.
Kramer has opened The Plant Lore, a full-service agency offering branding and product development, sales representation and retail support. Based in Los Angeles, she and her team are representing 10 high-end brands making CBD-infused products, including CBD + Nature (skincare); Gron (beauty and confections); Hello Goldie (tea); Mimoi (color face foundation with SPF); Ondo (tinctures), and Beboe (CBD vape pens). They have partnered with Wunderlich Kaplan Communications to offer brands public relations support.
“I have always been interested in coloring outside the lines,” said Kramer, whose entrepreneurial spirit has moved her from New York to L.A. several times, while she was working as a showroom owner and sales agent for such fashion brands as Tocca, Jean Paul Gaultier and Petit Bateau. She and Ed Mandelbaum started D&A in 1996, focusing on the advanced contemporary category, and expanded the fair beyond New York and L.A. to Paris and Tokyo. Over the years, she’s produced runway shows, collaborated with the CFDA on events and been a buyer for Tootsie Plohound shoe stores. Three years ago, when she started

Novak Djokovic and Montblanc Launch Special StarWalker Fineliner

NEW YORK — Novak Djokovic is a huge advocate for sports and education, but the latter is why he partnered with Montblanc through his Novak Djokovic Foundation to create a limited-edition StarWalker writing instrument.
Djokovic, who is the number-one ranked tennis player in the world and is defending his U.S. Open championship this month, had an intimate conversation with Hypebeast’s Courtney Kenefick at Soho House in the Meatpacking District to talk about his collaboration with Montblanc, his foundation, the importance of education and his experience in education and writing.
“I’ve grown up in a household where education was essential. It took more than just tennis skills to get where I am today,” Djokovic said.
Djokovic spoke at length about education in Serbia, his home country, and how it can improve early childhood education programs. “Our education is quite good [for ages] seven and older, but there’s lack of awareness of what preschool really means,” he explained. He said culture and finances are reasons for the lack of programs and awareness, and added, “As a father of two wonderful children, now I’m understanding more.”
Djokovic started the Novak Djokovic Foundation in 2007 to invest in preschool education in Serbia at a time when 55 percent

U.S. Polo Assn. Creates 30-Minute TV and Digital Show, ‘Women in Polo: The Palm Beaches’

U.S. Polo Assn. has teamed with Palm Beach County Tourist Development Council to sponsor a new TV and digital show called “Women in Polo: The Palm Beaches,” a 30-minute in-depth look at past, present and future female polo players. The show’s release is in tandem with U.S. Polo Assn.’s yearlong brand campaign, “Inspiring Others,” supporting female polo players through women’s training programs, charities, tournaments, as well as lifestyle and fashion events. The launch is timed with Women’s Equality Day on Aug. 26 which commemorates the 1920 adoption of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
“With U.S. Polo Assn. being the official brand of the United States Polo Association, it was important for us to recognize these amazing women and share their inspirational stories both on and off the polo field,” said J. Michael Prince, president and chief executive officer of USPA Global Licensing Inc., which manages the multi-billion U.S. Polo Assn. brand.
The show will reach more than 100 million households across a national audience and will air Labor Day weekend on the TVG network, which focuses on equestrian sports. In addition to the national broadcast, the show will air on ThePalmBeaches.tv and be available in Palm Beach County hotels and

Kering-Led Fashion Pact Has 32 Signatories in Run-up to G7 Summit

PARIS — Geopolitical tensions might be running high ahead of this weekend’s summit of the Group of Seven industrialized nations, but the fashion industry is eager to paint a different picture — one of corporate rivals banding together with pledges to do better for the environment, signing on to the “Fashion Pact.”
Eliminating single-use plastics, using renewable energy and promoting regenerative agriculture practices are among the commitments from signatories of the pact, which will be presented by Kering chairman and chief executive officer François-Henri Pinault at the upcoming summit hosted by France in its coastal city Biarritz.
Structured around the climate, biodiversity and the oceans, the initiative is spearheaded by Pinault, who was mandated for the job by French President Emmanuel Macron last April. Thirty-two companies have signed on so far, representing around 150 brands, and more are on the way, according to Kering and officials from the French president’s office and the country’s ministry of ecology. 
Companies that have signed on so far range from fast-fashion retailers H&M and Zara-owner Inditex; sportswear labels Adidas and Nike; American-based companies Capri Holdings, Gap, PVH, Ralph Lauren and Tapestry; European luxury groups Chanel, Hermès International, Prada, Ferragamo, Giorgio Armani and Burberry, and Asia-based Fung Group.

Everlane Opens First Permanent L.A. Store

San Francisco-based, direct-to-consumer brand Everlane has opened its first permanent shop in Los Angeles, where it all started eight years ago.
The mission-driven basics line beloved by Meghan Markle, Emma Watson, Angelina Jolie and more, has opened a 3,188 square-foot store at 1101 Abbot Kinney in Venice, stocking Everlane’s denim, Ts and popular shoe styles including the Day Heel and Day Glove, alongside seasonal new arrivals. The space features huge glass windows, tons of natural white and a dramatic archway leading to the fitting rooms. 
“Everlane has had roots in L.A. since we launched in 2011. It’s where our first product, the T-shirt, was made just outside of downtown, where they’re still made today. It’s also the home of our first pop-up and recent experiential concept store, Tread by Everlane,” said Tara Shanahan, vice president of retail at Everlane. “We know there is a huge appetite for the brand and after testing concept shops in a few different areas in L.A., we landed on Abbot Kinney for its sense of community, laid-back feel and the incredible foot traffic it sees on a day-to-day basis.”

Shaq Loves Big Guys, Hates Super Teams

NEW YORK — Shaquille O’Neal is a champion of the big guy.
The retired NBA star, who played for the Magic, Lakers, Celtics, Heat, Suns and Cavaliers during his 19-year Hall of Fame career, is now a sports analyst for “Inside the NBA” on TNT, an actor, real estate developer and businessman.
But it was in his role as the big and tall style ambassador for J.C. Penney that brought O’Neal to New York Monday night. He’s had a collection of big and tall men’s wear with the retailer, called Shaquille O’Neal XLG, for just under a year, and this spring, partnered with the store and Wilhelmina modeling agency to host a model search. The three winners — Chukwukere “A.K.” Ekeh, Ricardo “Ricky” Vichot and Jordan Alexander “Alex” Cochran — are featured in the Penney’s fall campaign for the collection and have been signed to Wilhelmina’s Titan division of big and tall models.
Prior to a panel discussion, O’Neal sat down with WWD to discuss what it’s like finding clothes when you’re 7-feet, 1-inch, 325 pounds, how he thinks the Reebok brand has been diluted since being owned by Adidas, and his distaste for NBA “super teams.”

The Biggest Fashion and Beauty Brand Controversies of 2019 — So Far

So far, 2019 has had no shortage of brand controversies in the fashion and beauty worlds.
The year started off with a number of gaffes from some of the biggest luxury fashion houses, in many cases resulting in public outcry, public apologies and, sometimes, changes in company policy. Some of the most notable fashion controversies of 2019 were Gucci’s infamous “blackface” balaclava and Burberry’s noose sweater. Kim Kardashian also came under fire for cultural appropriation when she revealed the name her first fashion line, a shapewear collection called Kimono.
From the backlash against Related Cos. chairman Stephen Ross and his many companies to Jaclyn Hill’s beauty brand recall, here is a breakdown of all the fashion and beauty brand controversies of 2019, so far.
Gucci accused of cultural appropriation, twice — February and May 2019

Gucci came under fire for cultural appropriation not once, but twice in 2019. The first incident was in February when the designer house released a balaclava-style sweater in its fall 2018 ready-to-wear collection and on its web site, which many claimed resembled blackface.
The backlash was immediate on social media, including by Gucci collaborator Dapper Dan, who took to his Twitter account to express his disappointment

Tailored Brands Sells Corporate Apparel Division for $62 Million

Tailored Brands Inc. has officially exited the corporate apparel business.
The Fremont, Calif.-based parent company of Men’s Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank said early Monday that it has sold the division for $ 62 million in cash to a group led by its existing U.K.-based management team. Of the sale price, approximately $ 56 million was received upon closing and approximately $ 6 million is being deferred to the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The company said it will use the money to pay down debt, freeing up cash for capital expenditures.
“We are pleased to have reached an agreement to sell our corporate apparel business. The consummation of this transaction supports our previously stated strategy to focus on our core retail business in the U.S. and Canada while reducing debt,” said Tailored Brands president and chief executive officer Dinesh Lathi.
At the same time, the company updated its outlook for the second fiscal quarter. It now expects net sales in the range of $ 787 million to $ 789 million, GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of 64 cents to 66 cents and adjusted diluted EPS in the range of 78 cents to 80 cents, which is above the projections made on June 12 of

The Future of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Is Still Unclear

The future of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is still up in the air. But some people — even some former Angels — don’t seem to care. 
In fact, when asked about the show by a fan on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” model and actress Kate Upton, who is also a former Victoria’s Secret catalogue model, likened the whole affair to a “snooze fest.” 
“We’re sick of seeing the same body type,” Upton said. “You have to be body inclusive now. Every woman needs to be represented.” 
Upton doesn’t seem to be the only one bored by the Fashion Show. Viewership of the annual extravaganza — once considered one of the most sought-after events in the industry — has consistently fallen in recent years.

It didn’t help when Ed Razek, former chief marketing officer of L Brands, parent company to Victoria’s Secret, told Vogue magazine during last fall’s show in New York that “no one had any interest,” in seeing transgender or plus-size models in the fashion show. “Because the show is a fantasy.” 
Razek’s comments quickly caused a fury online. (He later apologized by way of social media.)

Polo Creating Sustainable Uniforms for U.S. Open

Polo Ralph Lauren is mixing it up a bit for the U.S. Open Tennis tournament this year.
The brand, which has been the official outfitter of the tournament since 2005, has reimagined the ball person uniforms it creates to be made from recycled materials. This is another indicator of the company’s push toward sustainability, which includes using 170 million recycled plastic bottles in its products and packaging by 2025 and convert the use of virgin poly-fiber to recycled poly-fiber throughout its supply chain by 2025.
The 2019 U.S. Open Ball Person’s uniform — a Polo shirt, short or skort — will be made from yarn derived from seven recycled plastic bottles and the fabric will have performance features such as stretch and moisture-wicking properties.
In addition, Polo Ralph Lauren will be collecting plastic tennis ball cans in partnership with Wilson at this year’s tournament and they will be made into the fabric for the 2020 Ball Person uniform. Over the course of the tournament, the company expects approximately 12,000 cans will be collected and recycled.
In addition to the official uniforms for the ball people, the company has created a collection of off-court styles inspired by the Polo Sport brand from the Nineties. The

Equinox to Donate $1 Million to Charity Following Stephen Ross Backlash

Equinox is pledging $ 1 million to charity in the wake of the controversy surrounding real estate developer Stephen Ross.
Ross — the Related Cos. chairman behind Hudson Yards, SoulCycle and Equinox — came under fire last week when news broke he was hosting a fundraiser for President Donald Trump at his Hamptons home with tickets going for up to $ 250,000.
Equinox executive chairman and managing partner, Harvey Spevak, wrote to gym members in an e-mail on Thursday, speaking out on the controversy and announcing the company will be donating $ 1 million to a number of charities.
“The last week has been difficult for all,” he wrote. “I am sorry for the impact it has had on our community — and I’m sorry we haven’t said more. We have not been ignoring the situation. I have been in our clubs listening to our teams and members. I really appreciate the open and honest feedback I received.”
Celebrities, fashion designers and others on social media expressed their outrage over Ross’ fundraiser, targeting the many brands he’s behind. A social media boycott has been called against Equinox and SoulCycle, with many canceling their memberships. Designers like Prabal Gurung and Rag & Bone have also pulled their upcoming

Celine Teases New Scents by Hedi Slimane

GREAT EXPECTATIONS: The first perfume project under Hedi Slimane at Celine was teased on Instagram on Sunday.

A post shared by CELINE (@celine) on Aug 18, 2019 at 2:41am PDT

It’s been some time since Celine has introduced a perfume. Interparfums held the brand’s fragrance license between 2000 and 2011, before it was taken back in-house by the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned label, which has not launched a scent since.
Slimane is no stranger to fragrance. While fashioning men’s wear for Dior Homme, the creative director in 2004, for instance, worked on a trio of scents. The colognes he conjured up marked the first since Christian Dior was founded in 1947, and were made to evoke French perfumes of yore.

Fashion Controversy in China: How Givenchy, Coach and Versace Are Involved

Brands such as Givenchy, Coach and Versace have all come under fire recently for marking Hong Kong as its own country on their merchandise and web sites. The brands have been criticized for offending Chinese sovereignty as the Hong Kong protests continue after 10 weeks.
The fashion controversy in China continued in the past week when models Liu Wen and Yang Mi ended their newly-minted contracts with Coach and Versace, respectively.

The models’ split from the luxury brands is part of a larger controversial issue surrounding fashion designers and Chinese geopolitics that have caused other Chinese ambassadors to break ties with the brands.

Kit Kemp Plants a ‘Secret Garden’ at Bergdorf Goodman

Design specialist and Firmdale Hotels co-owner Kit Kemp is getting more settled in at Bergdorf Goodman. Building on the success of the “World of Kit Kemp” pop-up there earlier this year, the creative has imagined a “Secret Garden” vignette in a corridor on the retailer’s seventh floor. As of Aug. 18, a selection of her wallpaper with Andrew Martin, home accessories, tableware and other select items will be sold.
With the help of New York florist Lewis Miller Design, Kemp wants shoppers to be seeing green — literally — thanks to real trees and other greenery. Secret Garden is her latest installment for the luxury retailer, having had a pop-up that covered a bedroom, a drawing room and dining room from April until now. As part of the store’s English Country Manor, the Secret Garden gives way with two stone dogs garlanded with flowers, Kemp said. For a treelike effect, there are fabrics and wallpapers including “Racine,” which was inspired by French botanical posters from the Fifties. A shell table, a mosaic bird bath, custom chairs in neutral-colored felts with appliqué of florals and plants, a little pull-up stool, a collection of bird boxes and African lamps made with hundreds of

Selfridges Unveils New Generation Office Space

NEW HUB: After a long and ambitious renovation project of its accessories and men’s wear departments, Selfridges is now applying its flair for creative architecture and experiences to its executive, buying and merchandising offices, located on Duke Street, next to its London store.
For the refurbishment project, the British retailer appointed architect Alex Cochrane, a longtime collaborator, to transform the department store’s 19,700-square-foot head office — a process that took up to two years to complete.
The aim was to create a more creative and collaborative workspace environment, as well as incorporate sustainable design elements. Cue pink glass telephone booths, bright red box seats in a dedicated table tennis area and glossy green or magenta shelves. The space also features materials such as renewable wood paneling and solar panels to further the retailer’s commitment to sustainability.
Earlier this year, the retailer also announced plans to ban exotic skins from its store as part of its sustainability efforts.
It’s also ditching assigned work spaces in favor of open-plan workrooms in its buying and merchandizing area — dubbed the Hub — in a bid to be more aligned to the nomadic nature of the buying team’s busy travel schedule.

Versace Provides Travel Kits for Turkish Airlines Business Class Intercontinental Travelers

VERSACE FRESHENS UP: Duty-free shopping in airports can be a blood sport for harried travelers who tend to fall into two camps — killing time or crunched for time.
Turkish Airlines travelers can skip the last-minute blitz for moisturizer, lip balm and other in-flight sundries, since the carrier will be providing them with travel kits from Versace or Mandarina Duck. Business-class passengers taking intercontinental flights will get the Versace assortment. Female fliers will find socks, earplugs, a sleep mask, warning stickers, Versace lip balm, hand lotion, facial mist and a hair clasp all contained in a zippered orange case. The men’s version is slightly different and is stowed away on a black case. To keep the pearly whites intact, there are travel-size Colgate toothpaste tubes as part of the deal.
Staying squeaky clean is truly in fashion, as evidenced by Naomi Campbell’s viral “airport routine” video, which was filmed on a Qatar Airways plane. More than 1.4 million people have watched the five-minute spot on her YouTube channel. The supermodel breaks out her pre-packed plastic gloves to scrub down her business class surroundings, “cleaning anything that you touch or could possibly touch.”
Turkish Airlines isn’t just offering its business-class passengers some special pampering

Bergdorf Goodman is hoping to attract sneakerheads by partnering with Goat for a special installation at its men’s store that will run through New York Fashion Week.
On Wednesday, the retailer and the Los Angeles-based sneaker reseller will open an installation at the Goodman’s Men’s Store that will showcase some highly coveted models including Chanel’s collaboration with Pharrell on the Adidas NMD Human Race Trail, and the auto-lacing Air Mag Back to the Future.

Jamie Foxx and Sylvester Stallone’s Daughters, Corinne and Sistine, Costar in “47 Meters Down: Uncaged”

“I don’t think I fully thought it through,” said Corinne Foxx, 25, of accepting a starring role in Johannes Roberts’ shark thriller “47 Meters Down: Uncaged,” out today. “The director asked me, ‘What’s your swimming ability like?’ I said, ‘It’s great, it’s wonderful,’ and then I got there, and I couldn’t even doggy paddle.”
“They told me I got the part on a Thursday, and by Sunday, I was on a plane,” she continued. She was given the part after another actress turned it down and learned to both swim and scuba dive in four days. “It’s survival. Either you swim or you don’t swim, so I had to figure it out. I don’t know what I was thinking, but it paid off.”
Along with being the daughters of well-established, respected actors, Jamie Foxx and Sylvester Stallone, Corinne and her costar Sistine Stallone, 21, have a number of other similarities.
They have both modeled, been Miss Golden Globe — the tradition that ended in 2017 of celebrity offspring assisting in handing out award trophies to winners — and now, they’re in their first feature film.
“It’s been fun, because it’s my first press circuit for my own movie,” said Foxx of being asked the

Eckhaus Latta and Ugg Throw an L.A. Dinner Party in Honor of Their Collaboration

“You can see my house from here,” said L.A. native Este Haim on a summit of Montecito Heights overlooking Los Angeles on Wednesday night. Leave it to Eckhaus Latta to showcase someplace new, a part of town in Northeast L.A. — east of Echo Park — unfamiliar to most. “You can also see the high school I went to. This view doesn’t suck.”
The bicoastal brand, founded in New York City by Zoe Latta and Mike Eckhaus in 2011, was throwing an al fresco dinner party to celebrate their recent collaboration with Ugg.
“We listened to a lot of techno in the car,” she said of the ride over with sisters and Haim bandmembers, Danielle and Alana Haim. “We listened to a bunch of Eiffel 65. And do you remember Rockell? She was a late-Ninties techno artist. When we’re on our way to a party or dinner, we like to put on music that helps inform the vibe of the night to come.”
“These are my sisters,” she continued, as Danielle and Alana appeared. The three were donning the same outfit, head to toe.
“It’s legitimately the same garment,” said Este. “We had the opportunity to, and we just kind of grabbed the bull

For That Special Day: Karen Walker Creates Bridal Collection

Just as every bride has a story — or more likely 100 stories — designer Karen Walker wants to be part of that narrative with a new bridal collection.
The Auckland, New Zealand-based designer has created an assortment of wedding-day styles, after years of customers requesting bridal dresses or outfits. Until now, the timing never felt right, Walker said. But that did not deter many from buying various Karen Walker designs to wear for their big day. “But they had never been designed specifically for that intent,” she explained.
Now there are 12 bespoke dresses, four bespoke suits and two off-the-rack dresses “for those wanting to elope,” Walker said. Retail prices range from $ 950 to $ 3,500 and are sold through the new bridal shop in her Auckland boutique and online store. Bespoke shoppers can work directly with her team that includes patternmakers, tailors and other specialists in her atelier or via e-mail, FaceTime or other means. Fittings and creating toiles are all part of the package. Such procedures have been put to use for six international high-profile clients over the past 12 months. That roster included former First Lady Michelle Obama, who needed a suit for her “Becoming” book tour. Walker said,
