Kohl’s Ceo Pay Tops $12 Million

KOHL’S COMP: Kohl’s Corp. might be known for its value-minded pricing, but it pays up in the c-suite.

Over $ 7.2 million of Gass’ take for 2018 came in the form of stock awards, the full value of which might never be realized, but she also received a salary of $ 1.4 million and incentive pay of $ 3.5 million.
President Sona Chawla received compensation of $ 7 million while chief merchandising officer Doug Howe’s pay totaled $ 8.7 million.
Former chairman, president and ceo Kevin Mansell received compensation of $ 8.9 million despite retiring May.

Mistergentleman Men’s Fall 2019

Name: Mistergentleman
Main message: Always one of the bright spots during Tokyo Fashion Week, Takeshi Osumi and Yuichi Yoshii’s men’s brand mixed easy tailoring with streetwear, outdoor and women’s wear influences for fall. Models walked the grass-like carpeted runway in retro, relaxed snakeskin print suits paired with satin double-breasted shirts and neckerchiefs, or velvet pants with roomy overcoats. The more casual looks included dad jeans, hooded sweatshirts and duck canvas jackets, all in neutral shades of gray, brown, khaki and black, interspersed with pops of purple, green and orange.
Osumi and Yoshii played with proportions, shrinking trenches and puffer jackets into crop tops and styling them over wool coats and loose sweaters. Moto, letterman and toggle jackets were chopped up into bib-like pieces and layered over outerwear, while a series of coats and jackets were cut from two contrasting fabrics: olive corduroy and gray wool flannel, or plush fleece with the same snake print from earlier pieces. Subtle feminine touches came in the form of silk scarves worn as belts over coats, and a handful of equestrian print jackets and shifts. The brand also debuted its latest collaboration products, including quilted bags made with Outdoor Products and a black satin bomber designed

Figure Skaters’ Costumes, Artistry Wins Them Celebrity-like Endorsements

SAITAMA, JAPAN — More than a dress, figure skating costumes are an opportunity to communicate a larger concept with viewers and judges — strategically designed to complement a routine’s music and emphasize its theme. At Friday night’s ISU World Figure Skating Championships — held at the Saitama Super Arena — this meant spandex, rhinestone-laden interpretations of famous stage works such as “Carmen,” “Chicago” and “Romeo & Juliet.”
Skating enlists an extreme athleticism that sees athletes hurtling themselves three, and now increasingly four, rotations into the air and spinning so rapidly that their body encounters multiple G-forces. The sport is unique, however, in that visual presentation plays an equally important role in an athlete’s success, placing costumes in a vital position.
Skating’s athletic romance and expressive fashions have helped create a significant fanbase for the sport in countries including Russia, South Korea and Japan — where figure skaters are becoming household names and are beginning to appear in high-profile campaigns for major beauty and fashion brands.

“I think what differentiates skating from other sports is that it’s also not only about athleticism. There is an artistic component, which complicates things enormously,” said designer Vera Wang, formerly a nationally ranked skater, who also

The Best Grooming Products to Transform Dry Hair

If you have dry hair, you experience less grime and buildup than guys who have scalps that produce more oil (which is basically like a natural, all-day leave-in conditioner). That means your hair can often become brittle, wilting, and prone to breaking, making it harder to style.


The 7 Best Products for Thick, Wiry Hair

Like overly oily or thinning hair, it’s entirely possible to personalize your grooming regimen to overcome your natural dryness, and to condition the hair so it stays soft and stylable, You’ve got your work cut out for you, but with the proper products and regimen, it’s smooth sailing.

Here are some of our favorites—consider it a push in the right direction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jack Black MP10 Nourishing Oil

With a blend of 10 natural oils (argan, marula, and grape seed are the most prominent), this oil works on hair, beards, faces, and more. Use it with your usual go-to styling product; it delivers the necessary nourishment to keep strands soft yet defined all day—and with a natural shine to boot. You can also use it on its own if you have longer hair to tame frizz and flyaways. It’ll nurture dryer-than-usual ends to prevent splitting, too.

[$ 35; getjackblack.com]

Shu Uemura Absolue Overnight Hair Serum

An overnight hair mask that won’t stain your pillows, Shu Uemura’s serum absorbs quick and delivers high-powered nourishment to hair. It can tame the effects of humidity (i.e. frizz), while preserving natural shine and buoyancy. You can go right into your styling regimen in the morning, since there’s no need to rinse it out.

American Crew Matte Styling Cream

Don’t be befuddled by the key ingredients in American Crew’s styling cream. Panthenol is a B5 derivative that strengthens the hair and thickens its appearance, and benzophenones help shield it from environmental damage. Together, they add moisture and prevent anything from compromising hydration levels throughout the day. You’ll get shine-free, lightweight, medium-hold style as a bonus.

Kiehl’s Damage Repairing & Rehydrating Leave-In Conditioner

Mix a few drops of Kiehl’s leave-in conditioner with your daily styler, or use it as a lightweight styling cream on its own. It’s loaded with ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and moringa oil, a trio that delivers and preserves moisture and defends hair against the elements. (If you use a blow dryer, you can also apply it before drying, so it helps shield from heat damage. But also, you should pick up an ionic dryer, per our tip at the end of this list.) This product will keep hair hydrated and soft all day; it’s the perfect complement to a nightly serum.

Davines MOMO Shampoo

This gentle gel shampoo pulls away excess grime and product without compromising the hair’s natural moisture. “What moisture?” you ask. Touché, but since you still need to wash your head, do it with a shampoo like Davines’, which uses cartucciaru melon to soften and nourish hair, as well as a host of ingredients to strengthen and protect it: Vitamin A and C, sinc, potassium, and phosphorus.

[$ 28; davines.com]

Hair Rituel by Sisley Restructuring Conditioner

If you’re super serious about fighting back against stubborn, dry hair, then use Sisley’s conditioner. With Vitamin B5, shea and coconut oils, as well as cotton proteins, it resuscitates dry, lifeless hair. In an instant, it feels fuller, softer, and more cooperative.

[$ 75; sisley-paris.com]

Parlux 385 Powerlight Ionic Hair Dryer

If you use a hair dryer to style your hair, invest in an ionic one. They dry hair quickly without the same heat-damaging effects of other devices. This one from Parlux is a great pick. It dries hair from the inside out. It’s also low-volume, lightweight, and high-powered, so you can tote it on trips and spend less time on your morning regimen.

Fashion Now Sheds Light on Fashion Talents in Beijing

BEIJING — A group of designer brands has chosen to show as a collective with the independent fashion showcase platform, Fashion Now, at Dreamland Art Space inside Beijing’s Four Seasons Hotel on March 20 to 21.
Founded in 2013 by Yilan Jiang, former deputy fashion feature director of Vogue China, and Sisi Ma Fashion Now provides an alternative solution for designer brands that want to be seen in a more curated setting, as the official calendar in Beijing is often filled with uninspiring brands and political influence and lack the power to attract top buyers and editors.
Jiang said the intention of launching Fashion Now is to “set the bar high on physical and metaphysical levels. I want to provide quality designers and brands with a platform and space to showcase their creations, and we grow with them along with the way.”
Fashion Now is a key event for the Beijing fashion community. Angelica Cheung, Simona Sha, editor in chief of the Chinese editions of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, respectively, have attended the shows, as well as designer Xander Zhou; fashion photographer Trunk Xu; artist Shurui Li, who collaborated with Dior Lady Art #3 project, and Hu Bing, actor and men’s wear ambassador

The Reracs RTW and Men’s Fall 2019

Name: The Reracs
Main message: With her inaugural show during Tokyo Fashion Week, Naomi Kurahashi displayed just how to present classic pieces on a runway without boring the audience: make sure to have plenty of variety, use beautiful textiles, keep the pace quick, and employ inventive styling choices. The brand lived up to its profile, which says that it’s “backed by quality and practicality,” but proved that it has so much more to offer.
The collection was made up of variations on a pretty basic theme: straight-legged or relaxed, jogger-style trousers paired with V-neck sweaters or just about any kind of outerwear imaginable, all turned out in neutral tones of gray, black, navy, white and beige. But the superior construction and luxurious textiles elevated the collection beyond simple classics, with suiting material showing a drape resembling that of matte jersey, and a black pleather poncho turning more heads than it would have if it had been made from animal skin. The fabrics were so beautiful on their own that there was no need for flashy prints, but occasional flashes of Fair Isle, argyle or checked patterns kept things interesting.
The result: Kurahashi has been designing The Reracs for nearly a decade, but proved

Lane Crawford Signs Strategic Partnership With Labelhood

LONDON — Labelhood, a Shanghai-based emerging designer support platform, community and fashion retailer, has entered into a strategic partnership deal with Lane Crawford for the Greater China region.
Labelhood will open pop-up corners in Lane Crawford’s stores in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai and Chengdu, with the focus on Chinese emerging talents from the fall 2019 season.
The partnership also includes a three-season scholarship supporting the most promising Chinese designers. The retailer will support the winner’s showcase in Labelhood during Shanghai Fashion Week with a cash prize of 100,000 renminbi, or $ 14,867 each season.
The first recipient of the inaugural scholarship is the New York-based Chinese designer Caroline Hu. Educated at Central Saint Martins and Parsons School of Design, Hu was nominated as a finalist in the 2019 edition on LVMH Prize last month.
“I am truly grateful for the support from Labelhood and Lane Crawford,” said Hu. “The scholarship is a very big encouragement for independent designers like me, and it will play a positive role in promoting the growth of independent designers in China.”
Tasha Liu, founder of Labelhood, said “The upcoming collaboration with Lane Crawford reaffirms our positioning on continuous Chinese designer incubation. I believe the partnership will amplify the message.”

Barneys Beverly Hills Door First to Bow the High End Concept Shop

ROLLING OUT: Barneys New York is looking to take the cannabis lifestyle to higher ground with a new concept shop rolling out to its Beverly Hills store first.
The High End launches with product from more than 30 brands, including an exclusive deal with Beboe. The assortment touches on categories that range from home and beauty to jewelry. Among the roster of product exclusives are Devambez rolling papers, custom-blown glass pipes by Caleb Siemmon and Laboratorio Pesaro ashtrays.
“As vast as the market is, it’s actually a really small community in terms of what everyone is doing,” said creative director Matthew Mazzucca about the competitive landscape. “No one is really addressing the home, the lifestyle product aspect of it. We have access to the best designers and vendors in the world and we’re able to partner with them on special collaborations. We looked at the concept and started speaking to people about a year ago to create special product people can use in their homes that’s functional, that’s meant to be left out and displayed.”
It’s the buys, which Mazzucca called “super elevated,” that Barneys thinks will give it a leg up on the competition.

Keisukeyoshida RTW Fall 2019

Name: Keisukeyoshida
Main message: What do you get when you mix sharp tailoring and a wide range of textures with subtle bondage influences? Keisuke Yoshida’s latest offering, which was shown on a slick red runway with stairs in the center and models all with bandaged heads. A short suit with an oversize, double-breasted jacket was worn over pleather leggings punctuated with cutouts and buckles, while slinky dresses in headline printed mesh or lamé jersey were gathered all over for a balance of sexy and conservative.
There were structural elements as well, with tails of coats clipped to the backs of collars to create a vague origami effect, and sleeves that were either ballooned and extra long or topped with boned shoulder plates rivaling a football player’s padding. High-wasted pants with rows of rope fastened with toggles were paired with satin blouses trimmed in exaggerated Western-inspired yokes.
The result: Yoshida’s collection was just fantastical enough to find itself at home on the streets of Tokyo, without taking itself too seriously.

What Should Tom Ford’s Top Priorities Be at the CFDA?

Designers reacted positively Wednesday to the news that Tom Ford has been elected chairman of the CFDA — and had a lengthy “to do” list of the challenges he faces when he takes over in June.
While they praised the work Diane von Furstenberg has done over the last 13 years — working with Steven Kolb, chief executive officer of CFDA — to galvanize the American fashion industry, they say they are looking forward to Ford’s tenure and what he’ll do to bring a more global perspective to their businesses.
New York Fashion Week remains one of the thorniest issues on Ford’s plate, and a few women’s wear designers had ideas on how he could make changes to the semiannual event. NYFW: Men’s presents another problem, and some believe it got off on the wrong foot. They are hoping Ford, who has a luxury men’s business, can improve the event and have some impact to help the men’s business gain more respect.
Continuing the work the CFDA has started on diversity, sustainability, body image and other important issues remain paramount, they stressed.
But while the designers laid out the welcome mat, they had a lot to say about the tasks ahead for Ford:

The 7 Best Products for Thick, Wiry Hair

Some guys would do anything to have thick hair, but not you: You’d trade a limb if it meant you could find the right thick hair products to keep your full and furious mane under control. You watch with envy as other guys go through the day with effortless, weightless styles, while you contemplate a permanent buzz-cut just to save your sanity.


The 7 Best Curly Hair Products for Great Hair Days Every Day

Don’t give in to the clippers yet, though. You just have to learn how to tame the mane, and there are plenty of thick hair products to help you do it. With these simple additions to your hair care and styling routine, your perspective on thick, wiry locks will definitely change for the better.

 

Kevin Murphy Smooth Again Conditioner

Kevin Murphy’s conditioner uses keratin proteins to soften and smoothen thick, unruly hair. With a blend of oils and butters (like cocoa seed butter, Brazil nut butter, and monoi oil), it hydrates, tames any curls, minimizes breakage, and defends against split ends and frizzing. Use it daily to keep hair soft and smooth, and since it washes away grime, you can reduce shampoo usage to once per week.

[Available at salons; Salon Locator]

Function of Beauty Leave-In Treatment

Complete Function Of Beauty’s questionnaire, and you’ll get a unique shampoo and conditioner for your specific hair type. Now you can also add a leave-in treatment to your order, which will increase the nourishing and softening effects of the shampoo and conditioner. Just comb it into your hair like a styling cream and wear it all day long. It tames hair while keeping it hydrated, and it shields each strand from UV exposure.

[$ 18; functionofbeauty.com]

Bumble and Bumble Thick (H)air Styler

Unruly as it may be, thick hair can actually minimize the time you spend on your styling regimen. This is a heat-free cream styler, which means you apply it to towel-dried hair and let it set to avoid the drying and volumizing effects of a blow dryer. It softens, tames, de-frizzes, prevents split ends, and blocks UV rays, too.

[$ 31; sephora.com]

Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3

Before you wash or condition your hair, first rinse it clean and then comb in some of Olaplex’s Hair Perfector. Let it set for 10 minutes, and then continue with your usual regimen. The treatment was formulated by two chemists who formulated it with ingredients that relax, soften, and fortify the structure of the hair, making it more cooperative—finally.

Baxter of California Grooming Cream

Guys with wiry hair can approach stylers in one of two ways: First, you can use a soft product that adds shine and definition without actually taming anything aside from frizz. These will showcase the volume and strength of your hair, but they’re not going to lock it into place. Baxter of California’s Grooming Cream is one such product. Typically we’d recommend it to guys with finer, more relaxed hair, but it’s just as useful if you use it with the right intentions. Add a touch of hair oil to it, too, if you want even more shine to pop through.

[$ 20; baxterofcalifornia.com]

Courtesy Image

Firsthand Clay Pomade

On the other hand, you probably want a high-hold styler for most days—something that will let you lock in a combed-back style without worrying about it coming undone by noon. Firsthand’s Clay Pomade is exactly that. It gives you a matte finish, and you can use it to prop up more volumized styles. If you like the product but want more shine, drop in a pinch of hair oil.

[$ 20; firsthandsupply.com]

Old Spice Beard Oil

Sure, it’s made for beards, but this oil is also great for the thick and wiry hair on your head, too. The argan-oil blend helps tame flyaways and prevent split ends, and it adds a little shine and definition to your thick texture. Just put one or two drops into your palm along with a matte styler and apply them together.

Malamute RTW Fall 2019

Name: Malamute
Main message: For her second outing during Tokyo Fashion Week, Mari Odaka took inspiration from Tokyo’s changing landscape ahead of the 2020 Olympics, as well as from two films: Andrew Niccol’s 1997 “Gattaca” and Jim Jarmusch’s 2013 “Only Lovers Left Alive.”
Odaka created her own surreal landscape on the runway with large squares of gold Mylar illuminated by fluorescent tube lights, accompanied by a soundtrack of jarring noise. She deftly mixed contrasting textures, showing pleated chiffon trousers together with an unevenly knit scarf that resembled static on a TV, but in red and navy. A shimmering, open knit long skirt resembling a spider web glistening in the morning sun was paired with a cold shoulder black sweater with spots of ivory fringe. There were also pantsuits with relaxed, slit-ankle trousers in black on black floral brocade or pale gray suiting trimmed with tiny ruffles. An oversize grandpa sweater worn as a minidress and a red and black tracksuit with chevron detailing lent a retro vibe.
The result: The designer proved her fledgling brand to be one to watch with a strong collection of relaxed yet elegant pieces in interesting textures.

The 7 Best Curly Hair Products for Great Hair Days Every Day

When you have naturally curly hair, “perfect hair days” are often few and far between. That’s because each unruly strand has its own agenda—as do external forces like humidity, dehydration, and sun damage. To deal with this, you need curly hair products that can keep your locks hydrated but not weighed down, lifelike but also under control.


How to Get Justin Theroux’s Tousled Hair and Beard Style

That means stocking up on the right shampoo, conditioner, humidity shield, styler, and tools, and dedicating a few extra minutes each morning to applying them—it’ll spare you the frizz and fuss throughout the day. Here are our recs for the best curly hair products to try out.

SheaMoisture Detangling Shampoo

If your curls are coiled or afro-textured, they can shrink down and turn lifeless without proper nourishment. SheaMoisture’s sulfate-free shampoo doesn’t just flush away grime and grease; it also bathes hair with coconut oil, cocoa butter, red palm oil, and flaxseed oil. Together, these ingredients hydrate hair and preserve its volume and texture while shielding it from environmental damage and preventing tangles.

[$ 12; sheamoisture.com]

Davines Love Curl Shampoo

Fueled by almond extract, Davines’ Love Curl Shampoo preserves the buoyancy of wavy and curly hair. It also delivers a hint of natural shine to each strand, so your hair’s fullness and depth will be on full display. Unlike many other shampoos, this protein- and vitamin-rich formula adds moisture back into the hair (still, as with any shampoo, it’s important to follow a wash with a conditioner).

[$ 28; us.davines.com]

Sachajuan Curl Conditioner

We don’t advise washing your hair every day, since it can strip your hair of its natural, healthy oils. But you may need to do it more often than the average person, since those oils can also weigh curly hair down and compromise natural volume. Your best friend is a daily conditioning product that pumps nutrients back into the hair after a wash, or between washes. Sachajuan’s Curl Conditioner uses the brand’s propietary Ocean Silk Technology to lock in moisture and emphasize the volume and texture of your curls. Just comb it into your hair—in the shower or out—and rinse after one to two minutes.

[$ 31; sachajuan.com]

Bumble and bumble Curl Defining Creme

Part styler, part leave-in conditioner, this cream helps define curls while blocking damaging UV rays and preventing frizz caused by humidity and dehydration. The oil- and humectant-packed formula keeps the hairs in line—leaving plenty of room for effortless movement. It’s most effective when applied to dry or towel-dried hair, then blown dry with a diffuser.

[$ 31; bumbleandbumble.com]

Courtesy Image

Ouai Wave Spray

This spray uses rice proteins to texturize (that also means it’s safe to use on color-treated hair) and it lifts hair instead of weighing it down like other products do. It’s formulated to tame your locks and prevent them from coming undone during the day, and it adds a natural shine as well.

[$ 26; theouai.com]

Bio Ionic 10X Ultralight Speed Dryer

Often the best way to maintain control over your unruly curls is to blow dry them into place. Bio Ionic’s dryer does this in less time, preventing heat damage and preserving the moisture and shine in each strand. But to really treat your curls right, grab a diffuser attachment, which concentrates the hot air into smaller pockets to dry thick, curly hair more evenly.

[Blow dryer $ 29; Diffuser $ 24; sephora.com]

Living Proof Humidity Shield

Humidity can ruin even the best hair day. That’s why you should have a humidity-shielding spray at the ready, and apply it at the end of your daily haircare regimen. Living Proof’s spray uses a humidity-resistant polymer that blocks both unwanted moisture and UV rays for frizz and sun protection. It helps condition the hair, too, so it won’t detract from any other products you’ve applied to your curls.

Chriselle Lim Collection to Enter Shopbop, Bloomingdale’s

Chriselle Lim is expanding retail partnerships for her eponymous label.
In September, the superinfluencer teamed with Nordstrom to launch the debut line from The Chriselle Lim Collection, her namesake clothing brand. The collection, inspired by the fall season, was sold in 40 Nordstrom doors and online. On March 21, the sophomore line will arrive at Nordstrom and two new retail partners: Bloomingdale’s and Shopbop.

“[Nordstrom is] one of the best retailers out there, but I felt like I was ready to expand the collection and to get it into more hands,” said Lim. “Nordstrom isn’t everywhere — they’re not in New York. I have a ton of New York followers that have been asking and dying for [the collection], so Bloomingdale’s felt like the right fit. Our international customers, as well, are dying to get the collection and I believe that Shopbop has a great international shopping [experience]. I felt we were ready to expand.”
The forthcoming collection, the theme of which is “blooming,” consists of 28 stockkeeping units — tops, trousers, blazers, shorts and matching sets. There is also a larger offering of dresses, as requested by Lim’s

Tory Sport RTW Fall 2019

“Everything’s wickable, breathable…we spent four years developing fabrics,” Tory Burch explained during a walk-through of her latest collection for her high-performance sportswear brand, Tory Sport. Burch added that through her recent collaboration with Soul Cycle (a seven-piece capsule which launched on March 6) she was most excited about hearing feedback from real athletes — from full marathon runners to yogis — who have been surprised and highly impressed by its functionality. A fall favorite (and best-selling) call out included a chevron printed legging and matching bra in oatmeal brown (which sits in the collection under Burch’s new neutral program). Said leggings and bras could be piled under her continually wonderful knits or great new outerwear (a puffed, sleeping bag coat or half-quilted, half-sherpa fleece jacket).
For fall, Burch infused a study of contrasts throughout: watercolor-inspired tie dye versus clean, bright color blocking (in red, purple, navy, royal blue) and chevron graphics when it came to palette and prints, or lightweight nylon ripstop running jackets versus chunky, puffed down coats when it came to outerwear. Within the golf and tennis categories, a new white hybrid skort with a ruffled side perfectly depicted the brand’s overall contrasting play on sporty femininity.

Giorgio Armani Headed to Tokyo With Show, Armani/Ginza Tower Reopening

Signaling his admiration for the Japanese culture, Giorgio Armani is headed to Tokyo on May 24.
In the Japanese metropolis, the designer will host his first runway show for a pre-collection parading the Giorgio Armani men’s and women’s resort 2020 lineups. The location for the show has yet to be disclosed.
The show will be held in conjunction with the celebrations, that same night, for the reopening of the Armani/Ginza Tower in the city’s tony shopping district.
“I am glad to be returning to Tokyo for the reopening of Ginza Tower after its refurbishment: a major project that underscores my bond with Japan, a country whose aesthetics and culture I have always admired,” Armani said.
Nodding to the Japanese culture, the Italian designer, for instance, pierced the runway of his spring 2015 Privé haute couture show in Paris with bamboo-shaped transparent stalks and featured prints, embroideries and appliqués of the plant’s stems and leaves on the garments; gold brush strokes inspired by Japanese calligraphy decorated men’s jackets, knits and outerwear in the Emporio Armani men’s fall 2015 collection.
First unveiled in 2007, the Armani/Ginza Tower — covering about 65,000 square feet over 12 floors and two basement levels — featured the Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani

Maticevski RTW Fall 2019

Toni Maticevski upped the focus on tech fabrics, “And seeing how they translate into things that are wearable.”
The attitude stayed dressy, though. Gathered into architectural folds, a gold and silver foil jersey used on gowns was surprisingly light and soft, with foil effects also surfacing on a black wool-cashmere coat. A capsule of black-and-white chiffon evening pieces peppered with high-tech flocking in animal-meets-floral motifs were striking.
The designer broke the mood with a romantic section of dresses, including a long ivory tulle gown with a pleated top and short pale pink skirt embroidered in organic strips of metallics and sequins which lent an artisanal charm.
The pièce de résistance in the handiwork intensive collection was a floor-sweeping pastel gown covered in circular tea-stained ruffles.

Ones to Watch: Phyllis Chan and Suzzie Chung of YanYan

Can sustainable fashion be both polished and quirky?
Hong Kong-based designers and childhood best friends Phyllis Chan and Suzzie Chung are banking on it with their premium knitwear brand YanYan, which utilizes deadstock and leftover yarns from mills and knitwear factories.
The two are aiming to create a youth factor around sustainability, blending grandma elegance with a playful spirit in their designs, and simultaneously touching on hot-button issues facing the fashion industry — including low-waste production, experimental retail strategy, reacting to the pace and competitiveness of fast fashion, and putting out product with more long-term, less trend-driven, potential.
“We thought about what’s a good and interesting way to create product,” Chan said on a call with Chung from Hong Kong, adding: “We didn’t want to put stuff out there that doesn’t contribute anything new. We wanted to make sweaters that were special. We wanted to challenge ourselves and make sweaters that aren’t traditional. The knitwear market is starting to grow. It’s a space for people to have fun and experiment.”
Knitwear was a natural venture for Chan, too, who moved back to Hong Kong after spending nearly a decade at Rag & Bone in New York, most recently as the director of knitwear until

Restoring Health to the New York Harbor

A chilly morning in New York Harbor, and Mikey DeTemple welcomes the crunch of oyster shells beneath his Sperry BIONIC® sneakers, as he tells us about the importance of the creatures to the health of the harbor.

For this world-renowned photographer and filmmaker, who grew up the son of a clammer on Long Island, these glistening bivalves are a heartening sight.

“Oysters are nature’s greatest water cleaners.”

DeTemple has come down to Governor’s Island, braving the chill Atlantic wind, to photograph the results of the Billion Oyster Project—a massive restoration initiative that’s helped New York’s oysters come roaring back to life. By 2035, the Billion Oyster Project expects to distribute one billion live oysters around New York’s acres of reefs, so the Harbor can reclaim its title as the oyster capital of the world.

 

Sperry

“Progressively, this is the next logical step after you remove plastics from the water. You fill it with oysters.”

Here at the doorstep of America’s largest city, the world’s most prolific natural oyster habitat had grown lifeless over the course of the twentieth century, due in large part to plastic pollution. “Oysters can’t survive in water that’s filled with plastic,” Mikey says. That’s because oysters are filters—in fact, a single oyster can filter more than 50 gallons of water in 24 hours. But today, thanks to the good work of organizations like Sperry and the Billion Oyster Project, people are finding new ways to keep plastics out of waterways. 

 

Sperry

“I think change is happening.”

Mikey has spent most of his life in or near water—and he’s used his platforms as a surfer, photographer and filmmaker to draw attention to the issue of single-use plastic pollution. For Mikey, wearing shoes made from recycled bottles is just one more way of educating people about the problem of plastic in the oceans. “All these little things, wearing these shoes, starting these conversations, add up to one big thing,” he says. 

Mikey sees his Sperry BIONIC shoes as a perfect way to combat the plastic issue. Each pair is woven from, on average, five recycled plastic bottles recovered from coastal areas. That’s five bottles that won’t end up in our waters, making it possible for organizations like Billion Oyster Project to continue their good work of bringing our oceans, bays and waterways back to a natural state. Indeed, Mikey DeTemple views these shoes—like the oyster shells they stand upon—as a sign of hope. He cites Sperry and the Billion Oyster Project as organizations that lift his spirits. 

“Those aren’t government agencies that are doing that,” he says. “Those are people doing that. People who love the water.”

Donna Karan, Mashonda Tifrere’s Art Lead Her Team for ‘King Woman’ Exhibit at Urban Zen

Donna Karan has teamed with Mashonda Tifrere’s nonprofit Art Lead Her to put on an all-women exhibit called “King Woman” at Karan’s store and community space Urban Zen.
Pieces from Reisha Perlmutter, Delphine Diallo, Swoon and 12 other emerging and midcareer artists lined the walls of Urban Zen during a recent visit. Tifrere, dressed all in black just like Karan, pointed out one piece that especially moved her by Perlmutter. It’s a painting of a woman with vitiligo, her face peering above a pool of water in which her body’s submerged. Her hair is wet and slicked back.
“Reisha wanted to portray the woman in the portrait as strong and beautiful in her own skin,” Tifrere said. “On opening night, the woman came, and when she saw her picture hanging on the wall, she started bawling.”
There are individual stories like this one behind most of the pieces included in “King Woman”; Tifrere, who curated the showing, said it was imperative to forge relationships with the artists after selecting them to be part of the exhibition. She added she’d found all of them by looking around on Google and Instagram, then meeting them in person at art fairs.

Y’s RTW Fall 2019

One of the key themes from the Black line was transparency, with signature gabardine coats flipped inside out to put their inner workings on display, the seams exposed, as well as reversible pieces, with a split-personality coat with beige linen on one side, black silk on the other.
A uniform storyline included coats mixing houndstooth with a monochrome Y’s tartan, lovely black blazers with cutouts of jewel-tone motifs lifted from Persian carpets used to evoke medals, and a series of pinstripe coats with the stripes bleached into the fabric, as well as bleached color-blocking effects.
The Pink line offered a capsule of textured knits, including a seamless cashmere sweater; feminized spins on men’s shirting fabrics, applying details like lace and ruffles to gingham and striped styles, as well as a capsule of sweatshirts playing on the band T-shirt graphics used for Prince and the Revolution’s Purple Rain Tour in the mid-Eighties.

William Middleton Strikes Deal With HarperCollins for Karl Lagerfeld Book

Well, that didn’t take long.
William Middleton, a former Paris bureau chief of WWD and W magazine, just signed a book deal with HarperCollins to write “an unconventional biography” of Karl Lagerfeld and how he turned himself into a cultural icon. Lagerfeld died Feb. 19.
Middleton, who met Lagerfeld in 1995, did many stories with him when he worked in Paris and developed a friendship along the way.  Middleton is the author of “Double Vision,” about the powerful art-world family headed by Dominique and John de Menil that was published last spring.
Middleton said he had proposed a book to Lagerfeld about a year ago, and the designer was not interested in delving into his past. “I don’t think the history of Karl is the most interesting part. There are some elements of his past that are interesting. But it’s really what he turned himself into that’s so fascinating. I didn’t want to do a normal biography,” he said.
Immediately after Lagerfeld died, Middleton wrote a three-page proposal and e-mailed his agent, Binky Urban at ICM. “By 9 a.m., she had me on the phone [with HarperCollins vice president and executive editor Sara Nelson] and we had a contract the next week. It all

A New Kind of Athleisure: These Designers Turned MLS Soccer Jerseys into High Fashion

While most fans marked the beginning of a new Major League Soccer season by suiting up in their team’s colors and heading to a game, Adidas and MLS kicked it off with something a little unorthodox: a fashion show.

 

 

Adidas, which supplies the kits for all MLS teams, partnered with the league to launch Seams, a project where a handful of young designers reimagined soccer jerseys. The idea came about as a way to connect the sport with the world of fashion—and show that there’s more than one way to wear a jersey.

“It’s a great opportunity for us to marry our culture and trends with all 24 of our clubs,” Rachel Leber, vice president of consumer products at MLS, told Men’s Journal at the event in Los Angeles.


Gear Essentials: How 3 MLS Players Set Up a Perfect Beach Day

Four stylists and designers—Sara Gourlay, Corey T. Stokes, Andrew Andrade, and Pierre Davis—were chosen to rework the jerseys, and they created 48 different looks. We caught up with a few of them backstage before the show to learn more about how they approached the project.

mls adidas
Pierre Davis, Andrew Andrade, Corey T. Stokes, Sara Gourlay BFA, Owen Kolas

 

Corey T. Stokes is a New York-based stylist and editor-at-large for High Snobiety. He worked to merge his own tailored aesthetic with the MLS jerseys, which meant rethinking what a jersey represented and styling it in innovative ways.


How 4 Former NFL Players Are Dealing With Life After Football

“I toyed with this idea of a uniform,” he said, adding that he re-envisioned accessories, like sunglasses, and elements of a soccer kit, like shin guards. “I wasn’t too caught up on trying to fit into the soccer world, but more so taking the soccer jersey outside of it.”

adidas mls
Models backstage at Seams BFA, Owen Kolas

 

Andrew Andrade, a stylist at the LA streetwear boutique FourTwoFour on Fairfax, channeled his lifelong love of soccer into the outfits he put together for Seams.

“I think soccer as a whole is already a fashionable sport,” he said, and he found inspiration from a number of famously stylish players, like Johan Cruyff and Pelé. His looks layered jerseys over and under more traditional staples—like trousers, exaggerated collars, and blazers. He described his collection as “a little bit of fashion, but more a direct reference to soccer.”


Matthew McConaughey on Football and How He Became a Washington Redskins Fan

Sara Gourlay, creative director of the women’s streetwear brand Frankie Collective, has carved a niche for herself by up-cycling vintage pieces and fabrics into imaginative women’s sportswear—pushing for a stronger female presence in streetwear, which is often dominated with men’s looks. For Seams, she applied that same reworking technique to the MLS jerseys.

“I’d say each piece is unique,” she said. “Just like the reworking, we looked at this jersey and said, ‘What can we do with it?’”

Not surprisingly, her outfits pushed the limits of what you can do with a jersey: bags, purses, and even a catsuit made from stitched-together Vancouver Whitecaps uniforms were all featured in her collection. Although the designers were using men’s jerseys, Gourlay made sure her designs included options for women as well.

adidas mls

The show comes at a pivotal time for soccer, when women’s teams are pushing for equal pay and better representation. Soccer jerseys, as recent redesigns from Adidas and Nike demonstrate, are changing, too. For Gourlay, it’s all about moving beyond tired clichés of what women’s clothing should look like.

“The mindset before was that girls wanted to wear pink,” she says. “But women actually want to wear the same swag as guys. It just needs to be fitted to our bodies.”

adidas mls
Men’s looks modeled on the runway at Seams BFA, Owen Kolas

 

The show also highlights how much athletic wear has influenced men’s fashion. Athleisure is everywhere, and the idea of incorporating a soccer jersey into runway looks isn’t as far-fetched an idea as it might have been a few years ago. But while sweatpants and hoodies are having their moment in the spotlight, Stokes hopes to see menswear swing back to something a little more formal.

“I think there’s a fine line with making it look on purpose and it just looking sloppy and messy,” he said. “I’m interested in the idea of dressing nice again.”

As for what’s next in men’s fashion, he sees more tailored pieces, like trousers, button-downs, even casual suits becoming more popular alongside athletic-inspired apparel. Like many of the other looks on view at Seams, Stokes’ outfits gave a glimpse at how a new wave of men’s fashion could combine traditional menswear with style elements drawn from the locker room.

“It’s still comfortable, but you focus more so on good tailoring—well-fitted clothes.”

Now in its 16th year, the annual event will be held on Wednesday, April 10, at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City. The evening aims to raise awareness surrounding the people who live with HIV and AIDS, support LGBTQ youth and challenge discrimination against the LGBTQ community.

Galvan RTW Fall 2019

“It’s kind of funny when you think about seasons anymore because what’s winter for someone is summer for another,” described Galvan’s Katherine Holmgren. ”There’s always so much travel in-between different locations and climates and temperatures.” Having an international customer who shops in varying climates, the team from Galvan looked to their creative director, Sola Harrison’s, recent trip to Bali to infuse a wintery jungle theme into their fall lineup. Lush green leafy hues ran throughout — simply sophisticated in floor-length slips or more daring in an emerald green sequined blazer with fringed details. Acid green also made an appearance in scuba-like materials, like a bustier minidress, mixing the surfer, beachy vibes and jungle landscapes of Ubud and Uluwatu.
“We’re always trying to make eveningwear — glamorous, yes — but with a dash of fun and youth…and a cool factor that’s often missing,” Holmgren described. The brand continues to do so — fall meant updated sequined — as well as velvet devore-offerings (in a great leafy print). A special edition hand-placed tiger printed velvet devoré shirtdress and slinky “Bali” scarf printed — found during Harrison’s travels — gowns made for great additions to round out the collection of multiple-climate appropriate attire.

Patel, who oversees men’s, women’s, accessories, jewelry and beauty, said, “When we look at fashion, there’s a lot of storytelling that goes on.

Good Hair Day: The 5 Best Hair Products for Men

Turns out, there’s an easy solution for or all of the most common hair problems. You just need the perfect product. But even for specific issues like dry scalp or thinning hair, there are a whole store-load of hair products that claim big benefits. Sorting through the sea of creams, shampoos, and spritzes can be a bit daunting. We’re here to help.


The 5 Most Effective Ways to Regrow Thinning Hair

We’ve narrowed the field and focused on five problems underlying most bad hair days: frizzy hair, thinning hair, styling unruly locks, dehydration, and dry scalp. These five hair products will address those issues and keep your head looking and feeling great.

Martial Vivot Creme

Tame Frizz

To control flyaway hairs and frizz, skip heavy-duty pomades and grab this mild cream instead. It offers hold without weighing down hair, and the aloe-based formula conditions and moisturizes.

Murdock London Hair Play

Soften and Style

This styling product is light to the touch, yet offers plenty of hold for men with coarse hair. Ingredients like kaolin (a white clay) and vitamin B5 make manes pliable. Apply on damp hair for more control.

Antonio Berardi RTW Fall 2019

While he showcased his latest fall collection to buyers according to the traditional schedule, Antonio Berardi skipped any classic shows or presentations during fashion week this season. His beautiful collection was actually revealed to journalists with one-on-one appointments in his Milan showroom and via a range of images portraying fashion icon Catherine Baba.
“The idea that the collection starts in my world is given over to someone else, who makes it fit in her world, and the eventually of it becoming part of someone else’s universe on a totally different level is perhaps the most exciting thing of all,” Berardi said on Baba’s interpretation of her clothes.
Her bold personality actually exalted the already distinctive spirit of the collection — which, designed to complement the pre-fall range, was more focused on cocktail and evening attire.
Continuing to offer his own take on his inspiration from the year 1968 — already the theme of pre-fall — Berardi played with the sharp and the precise mixed with the soft and bohemian. A white minidress with scalloped edges and flared sleeves exuded the same feminine allure as another short dress, worked in overblown checks, showing exaggerated ruffles.

Bonnie Cashin Archivist Considering Documentary and Other Projects

As the heir to Bonnie Cashin’s archives, Stephanie Lake is the last person who needs to be reminded about the designer’s lasting influence on American fashion.
Rather than reside in the I-told-you-so corner, Lake is actively trying to inform current and future generations about how Cashin’s aesthetic continues to appear in certain designer collections.
Last month’s Diet Prada post, alleging JW Anderson’s appropriation of a Bonnie Cashin design was not the impetus for her proactive approach but a coincidence. Lake said Monday, ”My husband and I are constantly considering what our roles are and how we can best serve Bonnie’s legacy. It’s a constant theme in our lives. With JW Anderson, it did pop up just as we were getting very focused on the film. It just happened to be a coincidence as we were talking about needing to focus our energies on the next big project. It amplified what we were thinking about the timing being right.”
A JW Anderson spokesman said, “Jonathan has always been inspired by postmodernist fashion and mentioned Bonnie as an inspiration backstage after the show in London.”
Having been approached by a major documentary filmmaker last year about the prospect of a Cashin-themed film, Lake is mulling over

Yves Salomon RTW Fall 2019

A Seventies-style faun-colored intarsia coat figured among the rich range of shearlings, as the brand continues to steer the focus away from fur, also mixing textures on coats, contrasting shaved and fluffy surfaces and playing with prints, including a leopard motif, to broaden the category’s appeal.
Brought in to design the second edition of the brand’s Pieces capsule of six upcycled furs was André Walker who got creative with mink scraps. Items included a black mink jumpsuit masquerading as corduroy, a cream shirt in sheared mink, and a showstopper fringed sheared-mink intarsia dress with a face print based on one of Walker’s artworks. Sporting labels signed by Walker, the pieces will be produced in limited-edition series.

EXCLUSIVE: Paule Ka Taps Maxime Simoëns as Artistic Director

PARIS — Paule Ka has tapped Maxime Simoëns as artistic director as part of entrepreneur Xavier Marie’s plan to turn around the ailing French label.
The French designer joins the contemporary brand, which recently celebrated its 30th anniversary, from Loris Azzaro, where he spent two years as artistic director, overseeing the relaunch of its premium women’s and men’s ready-to-wear lines.
At Paule Ka, another challenge awaits him: to rejuvenate the brand, which was flirting with bankruptcy when Marie snapped it up in 2017, parting ways with its chief executive officer Catherine Vautrin and creative director Alithia Spuri-Zampetti, who had worked to extend the label’s appeal in daywear and separates.
Marie, who made his fortune as founder and former ceo of furniture and home decor company Maisons du Monde, initially brought back the label’s founder Serge Cajfinger on a one-year contract to right the ship.
Simoëns noted he has one thing in common with Cajfinger, who left the company in 2014 after serving as its creative director and chairman since 1987: they both come from the northern French city of Lille.
“I have long been familiar with the universe of the brand. To me, it’s always the cocktail and occasion dresses, a little sophisticated but not

Terez x Keith Haring Collection Launches Today on Terez.com

Terez, the New York-based ath-leisure brand, is collaborating with the estate of the late Keith Haring to develop the Terez x Keith Haring collection.
The partnership was forged in collaboration with Artestar, which represents high-profile artists,  photographers, designers and creatives.
Haring, who died in 1990, was known for his Pop Art and graffiti-like style, which grew out of the New York street culture of the Eighties. The collaboration was said to be heavily inspired by the power of love.
The pieces from Haring’s image library used for this collaboration were those that triggered joy through their vibrant colors, something that is a Terez signature, according to the brand.
The collection includes leggings, bras, tanks, Ts, crewnecks and joggers. Prices range from $ 60 for an uplifted heart-muscle T to $ 101 for a rainbow crowd printed jogger.
The collection launches today and is exclusively being sold at terez.com.

But his couture pieces grabbed all the attention, especially the twists on traditional Moroccan garb, like a top and skirt honed from finishings sourced from every city that the designer has visited in his homeland, including colored tassels in earthy hues that formed the skirt.
Also drawing the eye was a red silk scarf dress and a long gown with a split made from an artisanal striped wool with raw seams.

Gucci to Hold Cruise 2020 Show in Rome

CLOSE TO HOME: Gucci is not traveling far for its cruise 2020 fashion show — instead, it has selected one of the most striking sites in Rome: the Capitoline Museums.
The show will be held May 28 and the choice of the location results from creative director Alessandro Michele’s ongoing interest in “the Old World,” said the company, “this time drawing from a place reminiscent of his childhood.”
Located on the Capitoline Hill, the museums display a large number of ancient Roman statues, inscriptions, and other artifacts; a collection of medieval and Renaissance art, and collections of jewels and coins, among others.
In line with his interests, most recently Michele shot the brand’s pre-fall 2019 collection in the archaeological parks of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Selinunte.
Previous Gucci Cruise shows were held at the Dia-Art Foundation in New York City; the Cloisters of Westminster Abbey in London; the Palatine Gallery at Pitti Palace in Florence, and last year, the Promenade Des Alyscamps in a Roman necropolis in the southern French city of Arles.
In addition, over the next two years the Florence-based company will make a donation to support the restoration project of the Rupe Tarpea, the Tarpeian Rock, a steep cliff of the southern summit

Hermès Takes Craftsmanship Showcase to Rome

MILAN — After more than 43 stops across the world, Hermès has taken its traveling exhibition of craftsmanship to the Museum of the Ara Pacis in Rome.
Running through March 16, the “Hermès at Work” showcase, dubbed “Hermès Dietro Le Quinte [Behind the Scenes]” in Italy, continues to support the luxury house’s ongoing effort to introduce its artisans to the public. Hermès counts more than 4,500 craftspeople out of a total of 13,700 employees worldwide.
Spread over 10,764 square feet, the presentation in Rome will allow visitors to meet and interact with artisans from 10 different disciplines while they work, delving into how the luxury company produces its signature leather handbags, gloves and saddles, among others.
Master craftsmen will also do live demonstrations of the silk engraving and silk rolling that distinguishes the famed Hermès silk scarf, as well as of gem setting, watchmaking and hand-painting of the brand’s porcelain.

One of the key themes from the Black line was transparency, with signature gabardine coats flipped inside out to put their inner workings on display, the seams exposed, as well as reversible pieces, with a split-personality coat with beige linen on one side, black silk on the other.
A uniform storyline included coats mixing houndstooth with a monochrome Y’s tartan, lovely black blazers with cutouts of jewel-tone motifs lifted from Persian carpets used to evoke medals, and a series of pinstripe coats with the stripes bleached into the fabric, as well as bleached color-blocking effects.
The Pink line offered a capsule of textured knits, including a seamless cashmere sweater; feminized spins on men’s shirting fabrics, applying details like lace and ruffles to gingham and striped styles, as well as a capsule of sweatshirts playing on the band T-shirt graphics used for Prince and the Revolution’s Purple Rain Tour in the mid-Eighties.

Karlie Kloss and New ‘Project Runway’ Judges on the Show’s Kinder, Gentler Reboot

When “Project Runway” launched in 2004, it pulled back the curtain on the fashion industry, made Michael Kors a household name, and elevated the role of designer into the pop culture pantheon. Running for 16 seasons with guest judges including Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica Parker and Ciara, the show introduced such memorable moments as the Gristedes challenge and the Thunder From Down Under challenge. And it gave millions of wannabes dreams of making it like Christian Siriano, the biggest success story among the winners.
After a nearly two-year hiatus, the show returns on March 14 to Bravo for its 17th season, reimagined for now. New host, model Karlie Kloss, who is also executive producer, is joined by a new mentor (Siriano) in the Tim Gunn role, and three regular judges — Elle magazine editor in chief Nina Garcia, a veteran of the show’s earlier iteration; former Teen Vogue editor Elaine Welteroth, and designer Brandon Maxwell.

Kimora Lee Simmons Buys Baby Phat, Plans for Relaunch

Kimora Lee Simmons Leissner has gotten her baby back.
The designer, former model and entrepreneur celebrated International Women’s Day on Friday by revealing that she had personally purchased the once red-hot streetwear brand Baby Phat and will relaunch the label later this year.
She declined to disclose the purchase price or the company from which it was purchased, only saying: “We had to hunt around to find it.”
Leissner was the creator of the women’s-skewed streetwear brand 20 years ago as an extension of the Phat Farm men’s label under her then-husband Russell Simmons’ Phat Fashions company.
Leissner felt at the time that women streetwear fans should have a vehicle and created Baby Phat to fit that bill. She served as its creative director from 2000 to 2010 and later added the president’s title as well.
In its heyday in the early Aughts, Baby Phat was one of Phat Fashions’ most profitable brands with a wide variety of product categories and sales in excess of $ 1 billion. It was worn by major celebrities and hosted elaborate fashion shows.
When Phat Fashion was sold to Kellwood in 2004, Leissner continued to serve as creative director of Baby Phat. A fragrance was launched with Coty in 2005 and

Capucci RTW Fall 2019

Having cycled through a number of formats and creative directors in the last few years, Capucci is banking on an injection of youth to restore the brand to the glory days of its founder, Roberto Capucci.
The label’s owner, businesswoman and art patron, Paola Santarelli, has appointed her daughter, Vittoria Bonifati, as artistic coordinator, with Valeria Giampietro as art director. They, in turn, have drafted Luisa Orsini and Antonine Peduzzi, the “It” girls behind the handbag label TL-180, to refresh the brand.
Staging a presentation in Paris for the first time, Capucci unveiled a capsule collection based on the more wearable portions of its archive. The couturier, now 88, has been a friend of the Santarellis for decades.
“He was very close with my grandmother and my mother. My mom’s wedding dress was designed by him, and also my grandmother had a lot of clothes designed by him, so I’ve known him for quite a bit, and he comes still to the atelier. He has some clients and makes haute couture,” Bonifati said.
A tunic top and cropped flared pants featured subtle black-and-white Op Art stripes that were stitched together from dozens of fine strips of fabric. A collarless coat with a scalloped edge

19 Calvin Klein Runway Looks Worth Taking a Look Back At

It’s the end of an era at Calvin Klein.
The American fashion brand announced Wednesday it will not continue its traditional collection business, meaning Calvin Klein will no longer be a fixture on the fashion week runway. The news comes after the brand shuttered its 205W39NYC label in January, following the departure of its chief creative officer, Raf Simons, the prior month.
Starting his namesake label in 1968 as a coat shop, Calvin Klein grew his brand quickly, adding sportswear and lingerie. In 1973, Klein received the Coty American Fashion Critics’ Award for a 74-piece women’s wear collection, becoming known for his youthful and classic American style.

While the proliferation of Klein’s underwear and jeans businesses — and legendary ad campaigns featuring the likes of Mark Wahlberg, Kate Moss and Brooke Shields — are a significant marker in the designer’s legacy, his designs on the runway were equally impactful. Most notably, Klein popularized the slipdress, which was routinely modeled by Moss on the runway.

Get the Aviators The Rock Wears—Get Randolph Sunglasses

What do Zac Efron, Ryan Gosling, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Krasinski, and Jon Hamm all have in common? They’ve all rocked Randolph sunglasses in their most famous roles. If you want that timeless Aviator look the stars wear, get yourself some Randolphs.

Specializing in metal-framed shades with amazing optics and top-notch quality, Randolph sunglasses are made in the USA to exacting specifications. They’re so well-made the Randolph Frame of Choice (FOC) program provides the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, and NASA with an alternative to standard-issue military spectacles.

And those same specs that support our troops—and adorn our movie stars—are available to you.

Starting with top-grade materials like real glass lenses and precious metal frames, 50 different people cut, mold, stamp, twist, solder, plate, and polish Randolph sunglasses in a six-week process that involves more than 200 steps. Mostly by hand. All to produce just one pair of sunglasses with specifications precise enough to meet the demands the world’s toughest critics: the US Department of Defense, NATO, pilots, soldiers, and astronauts. (And The Rock, of course.)

What Makes Randolph Different?

Many other American eyewear companies took manufacturing overseas, chasing better profit margins. Randolph, though, chose to stay right here at home. Randolph Engineering is the only remaining optical company from the 1970s that kept metal eyeglass frame manufacturing alive in the United States, using materials sourced in the US. Three generations in and 45 years after its inception, Randolph is still handcrafting eyewear to military specifications, right in Randolph, Massachusetts.

Randolph Krasinski

Today, Randolph is still family-owned and -operated. And they’re still handcrafting the finest sunglasses with top-grade materials, classic designs, and a relentless attention to detail and quality.

All Randolph glasses are customizable. Just pick a frame and choose your material, your lens, and everything. You can even choose to have your frames engraved, which is great for wedding parties, birthday and anniversary gifts, etc.

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

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

Hillier Bartley RTW Fall 2019

Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley cast their eyes to the Eighties, and to the pop colors and patterns of Kansai Yamamoto. Their collection was wild, full of color and languid proportions in the form of a check Zoot suit, its jacket slashed open at the front, and a camel pinstripe suit with a short jacket and roomy, tracksuit-style trousers. Blouses and dresses were draped, folded, knotted or tied, as in a silk raspberry dress with statement sleeves and piratical flair, and a black tuxedo jacket with a cascade of jewel-toned, fringed silk spilling from the back. The collection had its New Romantic moments, too, in the form of a white poet’s blouse with wide ruffles around the neck and wrists, and cotton striped shirts with layered sleeves and long flowing tails. These clothes, with their dramatic proportions and look-at-me colors, aren’t for everyone: Only the cool kids need apply.

Is G-III Planning to Scoop Up Calvin Klein Jeans License?

Could Calvin Klein Jeans, which are done in-house by Calvin Klein Inc., be changing hands again?
According to knowledgeable sources, G-III Apparel Group, which has the Calvin Klein license for women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, outerwear, swimwear and dresses in North America, has an executive search out for a president of women’s Calvin Klein Jeans. That would mean that G-III could very well be scooping up the Calvin Klein Jeans women’s license for North America.
CKI got the jeans business back when its parent firm, PVH Corp., acquired Warnaco Group in 2012.
If a deal is struck, sources say G-III would manufacture and distribute Calvin Klein women’s Jeans in North America, while the European Calvin Klein Jeans line would remain with CKI, and continue to be designed out of Amsterdam, where Tommy Jeans are produced. Both Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein are divisions of PVH.
Morris Goldfarb, chairman and chief executive officer of G-III, was traveling in Europe and unreachable for comment. A spokeswoman for PVH Corp. said Thursday the company doesn’t comment on rumors.
G-III, which has been a savior for Calvin Klein, has healthy distribution in major department stores and reportedly generated about $ 1.2 billion in wholesale volume for its Calvin Klein products last year.

Farfetch Invests in Content With Farfetch Communities Initiatives

LONDON — Farfetch is amping up its content proposal with its latest initiative, Farfetch Communities.
The retailer has recruited the likes of Chloë Sevigny, Riz Ahmed, Adwoa Aboah and Blondey McCoy to be part of Farfetch Communities and create content on the platform in the form of curated shopping edits or the sharing of daily inspirations.
The company said the community will continue to grow and, apart from the famous names taking part, will include Farfetch’s in-house creative team, industry figures, local influencers and boutique owners who work with the platform. The idea is to bring together “people who are shaping the cultural landscape from all corners of the globe.”
This will allow the retailer to start sharing content on a daily basis on its web site across its women’s, men’s and kids’ wear categories.
“Since Day One, Farfetch has brought the world’s curators and creators of fashion together with people all around the world.

A.F. Vandevorst RTW Fall 2019

For fall, An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx had a country girl in mind — low profile but feminine, used to roaming the outdoors. Not one to put up with vestimentary restrictions. So they cut open the sleeves of her suit coat, lining them with zippers in case she wanted to close them back again. Shirt sleeves, too, were opened in this way, but with buttons. There was no planned color scheme — fabrics were chosen for their qualities, and then crafted into garments, making it more spontaneous and perhaps less intellectual, explained Vandevorst. Loose, tan trousers had a sporty, orange ribbon running up the leg while a silky purple shirt had piping details on the cuff, western style  and one shoulder. Also in the lineup, season staples: a long, pleated skirt and smart outerwear, including trenchcoats.
Reflecting the label’s new emphasis on accessories, the showroom presentation was dominated by boots, sneakers and handbags galore — all shapes and sizes. Bags were mostly square-shaped, stamped with the label’s signature cross. Footwear options included a chunky-heeled ankle boot with zebra stripes on the front and lizard skin on the back — suitable, no doubt, for that country girl hitting the city streets.

Erica Hanks Has Built a Career Styling Hard-to-Fit Men

Erica Hanks racks up the frequent-flier miles.
The stylist, who has built a business dressing professional male athletes as well as some female socialites and actresses, isn’t based in the fashion hubs of New York or Los Angeles. Instead, she’s headquartered in Charlotte, N.C.
But what the fashionistas on the right and left coasts may have overlooked is that the Southern city is home to many professional sports teams including the Carolina Panthers of the NFL, the Charlotte Hornets of the NBA, and the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
When Hanks moved there eight years ago with her husband, who is in the commercial real estate business, the mother of three was looking for a way to utilize the skills she had developed working at retail stores and writing for lifestyle blogs and magazines. She quickly realized that Charlotte was “a huge sports hub,” she said, but saw that no one was working with the players to up their fashion game.
So she started networking and offering her services. She “landed a race-car driver for the Kids Choice Awards,” Hanks said, and it was — pardon the pun — off to the races. She now has a roster of around 25 professional sports clients including

Joseph RTW Fall 2019

The message would have to come from the garments; due to a scheduling conflict, Susana Clayton wasn’t in Paris to present her debut collection for Joseph.
They spoke for themselves. Clayton had clearly done her homework and crafted a sturdy lineup that relayed the label’s particular breed of chic, British cool. A laser focus on trousers turned up an array of surefire staples — flattering waists, luxurious fabrics, slightly flared. Knitwear was chunky and oversize, yet sleek, including a handsome cape-shawl topped with a turtleneck, as well as the widest scarf ever — with yarn fringes. Moving down the rack, each piece, it seemed, called for individual consideration — the simplicity conveyed by a new, streamlined approach. Tailoring was sharp, but also purified, and Clayton skimmed the collars off of some pieces, including the coats. Leather work was another strong point, and the collection included well-cut burgundy trousers and a tunic dress. Also striking was a black, goat hair coat.
This was a strong debut, and a well-managed segue from the previous designer, Louise Trotter, who has moved to Lacoste. Relaying the label’s past strength — trousers! — Clayton also managed to spin it forward nicely.

Meccaland Goes to Sydney for Second, Much Larger Edition

COSMETICS COACHELLA: Australian retailer Mecca is bringing its wild and raucous beauty festival, Meccaland, back for a second year–and this time it’s heading to Sydney.
The three-day consumer event, which last year in its Melbourne debut attracted around 10,000 attendees, will be held in Eveleigh from May 17 to 19, the premium cosmetics retailer announced on Tuesday.
“We’re taking almost four times the event space,” said Mecca founder Jo Horgan. “We’re doubling the number of brands participating and we will have even more amazing glam-bassadors (beauty influencers) than we did last year.”
Beauty VIPs like Isabella Fiori, Shani Grimmond, Pia Muehlenbeck, Sammy Robinson are on the roster for the weekend, and brands will once again be offering special edition products.
Horgan added that “five immersive ‘worlds’ will make up Meccaland – a completely new concept that I’m particularly excited about, as it will bring even more theater, more pop, fizz and color to what was already a pretty spectacular event in 2018.”
“There will be a pop-up Mecca store, large format masterclass series, a Face Off artistry competition, cheerleaders, beauty ferris wheels and so much more. The Insta-worthy opps are truly endless…and I can’t wait!” she said.

Esteban Cortázar RTW Fall 2019

For his fall lineup, Esteban Cortázar had different types of women in mind. He doesn’t like it when people ask who his client is — an exercise he likens to putting someone in a box.
“I don’t just appeal to one kind of girl,” he said, noting the same garment draws different personalities — and ways of wearing it.
That point he drove home with a diverse collection, toggling between sensual elegance and a funky cool, all of it emphatic, which is one of the reasons it worked. 
Considering “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” — influence for sharp and simple lines with graceful silhouettes — he took Holly Golightly for a spin in the Caribbean. This brought added flourish — a bit more skin and lots more color, mostly solids —  yellows and pinks — but also a crazy print with religious motifs and a wild cat.
One of his muses was a friend, the stylist Michelle Elie, who modeled the looks.
“She’s not afraid of piling it up, being more eccentric, playing with silhouettes, with proportions,” he said, pointing to a photo of her with layers that included six bucket hats in bright colors, hot pink gloves over a sheer, pink sleeve, and knit leggings under a

Tribute to Karl Lagerfeld’s Blue-eyed Birman, Choupette

PARIS — Since Karl Lagerfeld’s passing, many of his followers, quite understandably, are worried about his beloved cat: Choupette.
Born Aug. 15, 2011, Choupette started life as the pet of French model Baptiste Giabiconi, one of Lagerfeld’s discoveries. According to Choupette’s Wikipedia page, Lagerfeld was cat-sitting Choupette for Giabiconi, who was abroad. Upon the model’s return, he refused to hand her back.
Choupette scored. The designer famously liked to lavish attention on the feline, known as fashion’s most pampered pet, with two ladies-in-waiting — Françoise and Marjorie — caring for her full-time. Choupette was surely pampered by her two nannies, whom Karl would invite to the Chanel shows, introducing them to people close to him. Sébastien Jondeau, Lagerfeld’s bodyguard and personal assistant, was also tasked with watching over her.
According to the tome, “Choupette: The Private Life of a High-Flying Fashion Cat,” released by Flammarion in 2014 — compiled by Patrick Mauriès and Jean-Christophe Napias, and featuring quotes by Lagerfeld on his favorite subject — the privileged cat also has her own private medical consultant, Dr. Yola Horn, and never travels without her custom-made luggage by Vuitton and Goyard.
The cat would join her owner for lunch and dinner, on the table, eating from

Brands, Recyclers and NYC Department of Sanitation Team Up to Recycle Fashion

Starting Monday, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation is teaming with the New York City Department of Sanitation and NYC Economic Development Corp. for a citywide social media campaign titled #WearNext in order to reduce the amount of clothing being dumped in landfills.
An online map created by the NYC Department of Sanitation will guide people to more than 1,100 locations across the city where they can take clothes they no longer wear. Participating stores and other locations across the city will act as drop-off points.
The campaign, which runs through June 12, also encourages consumers to find ways to repair, reuse, resell or swap old clothing, and invites participants to share their stories on social media using the #WearNext hashtag.
Every year, New York City dumps 200 million pounds of clothing in landfills. Globally, 73 percent of the materials used to produce clothing are landfilled or burned at the end of their life, while less than 1 percent of old clothing goes on to be used to make new clothing.
Make Fashion Circular is an initiative of U.K. charity The Ellen MacArthur Foundation and is leading international efforts to establish a circular economy for fashion.

Noir Kei Ninomiya RTW Fall 2019

Life bubbled under the all-black exterior of Kei Ninomiya’s silhouettes. The designer, who learned his craft at Comme des Garçons, themed his collection around roses, which were sported by models on blood-red headpieces created by artist Makoto Azuma, infusing the silhouettes with an organic feel.
The first looks, rigid structures made of ruched taffeta taking over the models’ bodies, hinted at alveoli, while an overskirt with dangling black taffeta threads, worn over a nude tulle skirt, looked like spider’s legs.
Further along, classic pieces like leather biker jackets morphed into different creatures entirely: on one look, a jacket was progressively weaved in to what looked like a round wicker cage, a gleaming leather contraption encasing the entire lower part of the model’s body. The same structure was thrillingly applied to the top of a dress, cradling the model’s torso up to her neck.
There was a strong sense of protection: organza tops had thick wraparound corsets bunching up the waist, while some silhouettes sported leather harnesses with what looked like blown-up tubes coming out to form full skirts. The silhouettes got bigger as the collection progressed, leaving the all-black look for touches of flesh pink and bruised purple: models’ heads peeped out from

Diane von Furstenberg, Ashley Longshore Team Up on Art Collection

Diane von Furstenberg and mixed-media artist Ashley Longshore are collaborating on a curated art collection of extraordinary women for International Women’s Month.
After meeting Longshore over tea in London in December, von Furstenberg had the idea to put together a collection of Longshore’s art. She gave Longshore a list of women who have inspired her through their energy and achievements.
“I was immediately impressed by Ashley’s contagious enthusiasm and vibrant talent,” said von Furstenberg. “I knew she was a ‘Woman in Charge,’ and I felt she would be perfect to curate our next inspiration room especially with International Women’s Month approaching. The collaboration felt seamless.”
Longshore, who is based in New Orleans, painted a collection of 37 portraits of such women as Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Jackie Kennedy, Cleopatra, Marlene Dietrich, Oprah Winfrey, Gloria Steinem, Michelle Obama, Elizabeth Taylor, Maya Angelou, Whitney Wolfe Herd and Rosa Parks, some wearing von Furstenberg’s most iconic prints and designs. The curated art collection will be unveiled Thursday during von Furstenberg’s International Women’s Day activities and will live in the flagship at 874 Washington Street in the Meatpacking District through May. The artwork will also be available for purchase.
Asked how she decided on the women, von Furstenberg said, “I

Protection, Empowerment Central Themes at U.N. Women for Peace Association Awards

No one needs reminding that the world is not a peaceful place, but attendees at Friday’s United Nations Women for Peace Association’s annual luncheon preferred to focus on the positive.
While the annual event honored actor-director-producer Ben Stiller, fashion designer Naeem Khan, philanthropists Albert and Deidre Pujols and “India’s Daughter” filmmaker Leslee Udwin, their messages stressed the need for greater women’s empowerment, improved training, workers’ rights and safety.
Before the program got under way, former New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly, who cochaired the event, spoke of what needs to happen for fashion companies to help with the problem of human trafficking. “Attention has to be drawn to it. It’s a problem that is sort of under the radar. It exists to a large extent in Eastern Europe, Central America and South America,” he said. “Sometimes it’s not as obvious as you think it would be. There is leverage being exerted against relatives, a village or something like that. It does not necessarily come to the fore; even when you question these young women, they are not coming forward with information in many instances. They have to consider what’s being held over them so it’s not always easy to investigate the

Alienation is the common thread that runs through Léa Dickely and Hung La’s collections with their acerbic, uncompromising esthetic. Staging their first runway presentation this season in a cavernous garage space, they played on the convention of dressing to blend in — inspired by manuals offering advice for Stasi agents on how to go incognito — spiked with jarring moments of look-at-me bravado.
Beige and brown tailoring provided the uniform backdrop in the form of voluminous trench coats, tailored jackets, wide flared pants and baggy masculine shirting with pointy Seventies collars, the concept of status knocked home by styling the looks with Louboutin stilettos.
Dickely and La played on the notion of what is real and what is fake, using leather and rubber interchangeably and challenging the observer to identify which is which on coats, pants and dresses.
Their nonconformism emerged through violent pops of color — bright red, vivid yellow — the latter worked for example as a zebra print or a psychedelic motif on a fitted shirt that once again harked back to the Seventies, an era of predilection for the designers.

For Anna Dello Russo, Street Style Is a ‘Job’

FASHION TOME: The first floor of Parisian concept store Montaigne Market was packed with students and visitors on Thursday for a book signing by Italian fashion editor Anna Dello Russo.
The journalist, creative consultant for Vogue Japan and brand ambassador for Istituto Marangoni started her afternoon by presenting her “AdR Book: Beyond Fashion” to students at the Paris branch of the fashion school, before heading over to Montaigne Market to sign copies.
The book, which was published in 2018, documents the fashion editor’s 30-year career in the form of box set with a pop-up book, pictures of some of her greatest looks, excerpt from her diaries, a scrapbook and a set of stickers.

“Phaidon approached me after I auctioned my clothes at Christie’s in February 2018: I had taken pictures of all my looks and we decided to turn it into a magic box, which reflected my approach of fashion better than a regular book,” said Dello Russo. “It’s an experience: it’s at times fun, at others serious, you can touch and play with it. It’s fashion explained to the kids, like a video game.”

Chainmail Is a Trend Happening at Paris Fashion Week

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

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

Leonard Paris RTW Fall 2019

Heritage can be stifling. How far can Leonard’s signature printed silk motifs actually go? Since her nomination as creative director of the house in March 2016, Christine Phung has been striving to take the brand’s identity to new heights. Sometimes her modern take works; at others it feels constrained.
The fall 2019 collection was the latter. Themed around a plane trip to Jaipur, India, the show was accessed thanks to boarding passes. Silk eye masks were laid out on seats, while on the runway models rolled Tumi suitcases, held printed neck pillows and one even wore a safety jacket. These were fun gimmicks, but they couldn’t distract from the busy prints that were splashed over total looks: in dominant tones of pink, orange, blue and purple, long silk dresses, fluid jackets, shirts, short kimonos and caftans were covered in garish orchid motifs. Most silhouettes were barely more than holiday dresses for heiresses; others looked like stewardesses from a particularly flashy airline company.
Gold lamé touches on the three black silhouettes were more convincing, taking the prints straight to evening wear. Phung played with nuances: printed silk details were ingeniously placed around wrists and belt linings on wool coats and pinstriped suits, while

Jasper Conran to Buy Yves Saint Laurent’s Moroccan Villa

NEW PAVILION: The Fondation Jardin Majorelle has agreed to sell Villa Mabrouka in Tangier, Morocco, “the House of Luck” owned by the late Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé, to British designer Jasper Conran.
In line with the instructions of Bergé, who cofounded the Fondation Jardin Majorelle with Saint Laurent, the proceeds of the sale will benefit the nonprofit organization, which oversees the Yves Saint Laurent Museum in Marrakech, Morocco, and the adjoining Jardin Majorelle and its Berber Museum, the foundation said on Thursday.
“A resident of Marrakech, the acclaimed British designer Mr. Conran will undoubtedly continue the rich heritage of the property and contribute to the vibrant and cosmopolitan revival of Tangier currently underway,” Madison Cox, president of the Fondation Jardin Majorelle, said in a statement.
Saint Laurent and Bergé purchased the villa in the Nineties and asked Jacques Grange to decorate the interior.
“The theme was an eccentric Fifties Englishman who had come to live in Tangier. Yves wanted chintz and one color per room: a blue room, a yellow and so on. It was like decorating a house for characters out of a play by Tennessee Williams,” Grange said in “Les Paradis Secrets d’Yves Saint Laurent et de Pierre

Off-White RTW Fall 2019

Virgil Abloh had a tongue-in-cheek message for those who think his Off-White brand is a license to print money: the invitation for his fall show was a clear plastic envelope filled with fake bills. Some included the soon-to-be-scrapped 500-euro note.
Though the streetwear label slipped from the number-one spot on global fashion search platform Lyst’s latest quarterly index of fashion’s most desirable brands and products — to a still-impressive number two behind Gucci — its “if you make it, they will buy it” aura appears intact.
In fact, Abloh seems so confident in the brand’s momentum that he now barely includes its signature markers — ironic quotation marks, diagonal stripes and industrial-themed belts — in his runway shows. Instead, he uses the stage as a platform to expound on his brand values.
“There’s an empowered woman, a young woman, that I’m enjoying not treating as a passing trend,” he said in a preview. After collaborating with Nike last season on a track-and-field-themed show, this time he delved into motor racing, inspired by the Rockford Speedway, a Nascar race track near his home town of Rockford, Ill.
“I’m not into sport, because we’ve kind of exhausted that idea, but I’m into male-dominated niche culture,” he

Abboud, Daughter Turn Attention to Home Design

Designing luxury men’s wear has been a passion for Joseph Abboud for more than 30 years. And thanks to his daughter Ari, he’s now turned those skills to home design as well.
On her urging, the designer and his daughter collaborated to revamp a house in their New York hometown of Bedford. They bought a 1930s Tudor Revival home with a 19th-century carriage house and set out on a yearlong journey to renovate the house.
Although the designer had designed interiors for his own Bedford and Boston residences, this was Ari Abboud’s first foray into home design. The end result is a well-appointed interior that includes leather countertops, custom cabinets, exposed beams, vintage floorboards, cozy sectional couches, leather wing chairs and even custom-designed cashmere pillows. They partnered with Restoration Hardware on the interior.
The completion of the project found them on the cover of Bedford magazine’s March/April issue.
“This was my night job,” the designer said. “It was a labor of love and family and it was great to collaborate creatively [with my daughter.]”
The house, which is fully furnished, is on the market for $ 3.65 million.

Faith Connexion RTW Fall 2019

For the brand’s first runway presentation and his first full collection as creative director, Nikola Vasari succeeded in bringing together with casual ease streetwear influences with grunge and glam references inspired by music icons such as Courtney Love, Grace Jones and Lou Reed.
The lineup was a further step in a more focused direction for the edgy label, a balance of tailoring, flou and streetwear with an edge. There was some standout outerwear — a ruched jacket in green jacquard that Vasari described as a “party bomber” was among the most striking pieces.
Animal-print motifs were key to the glam vernacular, as on a zebra-print minidress in a holographic metallic fabric or bright prints in purple, red and black on some of the later flamboyant looks, while grunge references were seen in the form of distressed knitwear or the embroidered chains that adorned several designs.
Elsewhere, a hand-painted and fur-trimmed parka was pure Faith Connexion. Other outsized outerwear pieces were paired with racy looks, as in a dress made up of strips of lace like bandages across the body.
Dominated by a largely monochrome palette, the collection offered further pops of color in the form of a green sequined shift dress or the multicolored

The Vampire’s Wife Turns Cult Following Into Global Retail Hit

LONDON — London-based label The Vampire’s Wife quietly came onto the scene four years ago, but quickly seduced women with its lavish fabrics, romantic prints and signature ruffles.
What started as an insiders’ secret — favored by British fashion editors, models and friends of the brand’s founder Susie Cave, who is a former model and the wife of musician Nick Cave — turned into global retail hit, with stockists including Matchesfashion.com, Browns, Dover Street Market and Moda Operandi.
Cave’s success recipe is simple: offering product that fits well and makes women feel good.
“There is certainly a community of women who are loyal to The Vampire’s Wife, but this is simply because the dresses just look beautiful when on — women respond to this,” Cave said. “The pieces are easy-to-wear but have a maximum impact and there’s a disruptive quality to them, a sort of seditiousness. They are simultaneously demure and outrageous, turning the wearer into a walking event.”
Despite the brand’s soaring popularity both at retail and on the red carpet — fans include everyone from Keira Knightley, to Dakota Johnson, Jennifer Aniston and Ruth Negga — Cave has been treading cautiously when it came to growing the brand’s offer.

The Best Ways to Heal Acne Scars, According to Dermatologists

When a pimple goes away and leaves a permanent scar in its place—one that appears as an imperfection in the skin—it can be devastating to imagine yourself dealing with it indefinitely. When it comes to healing acne scars, it’s important to get a few opinions—and know what you’re dealing with.

 

 

Ultimately, there are two categories. First up: textural irregularities. These are permanent divots that can take various forms on the surface of your skin.

Acne causes inflammation, which destroys the collagen in your skin, says Benjamin Garden, M.D., of Chicago Laser Dermatology. “These irregularities can be very difficult to treat, and there’s nothing that’ll make them fully disappear.” But they can be minimized.


The 5 Most Effective Ways to Regrow Thinning Hair

The second type of scarring is “residual hyperpigmentation,” or dark spots (brown or red) that embed themselves in the skin and take months or even years to heal. They can go away on their own, though the process can be expedited with the right regimen or additional treatment.

Regardless of which type of scarring you’re looking to heal, “the first step is to stop all active acne breakouts,” says Gabriel Martínez-Díaz, M.D., of M.D. Aesthetics & Dermatology. “I try to maximize the combination of medical therapies, such as Accutane (aka isotretinoin, an oral retinol treatment), with numerous minimally invasive procedures. (Read on for examples of some, and visit your dermatologist for the best treatment plan for you, as some drugs like isotretinoins may have adverse side effects.)

Once your existing acne is gone—or if you’re just targeting individual scars with otherwise clear skin— it’s time to address how to minimize the appearance of dark spots and divots. We spoke with numerous board-certified dermatologists for the methods they most often prescribe to their patients.


The 7 Best Customized Hair, Skin, and Cologne Brands for Men

How to Treat Residual Discoloration

Retinol: “My first line of defense is topical retinoids,” says Susan Bard, M.D., of Vive Dermatology. “In addition to combating active acne, it also helps fade any dark marks left behind by the acne and also stimulates collagen production to help fill in some of the depressed scars.” Apply a prescription-strength topical retinoid to your face every night. This should be part of the skincare regimen you use for the rest of your life.

Chemical Peels: “Chemical peels help control acne and help fade dark marks as well as stimulate collagen deposition,” says Bard. Sometimes, the fastest way to a smoother complexion is to “resurface” your face altogether. Chemical peels help “shed” the older surface layer of the skin with a chemical agent. The younger skin underneath is brighter, more youthful, and often smoother in complexion. In theory, you’re getting rid of that dark spot by surfacing healthier cells.

SPF + Patience: While it’s not helpful to hear, your dark spots just need time to heal. However, Sara Moghaddam, M.D., of Vive Dermatology Surgery & Aesthetics, stresses the importance of using SPFs daily, in order to shield the dark spots from the sun. While it may seem like a nice tan will “mask” the dark spot, it’ll only worsen the discoloration. By shielding the skin from UV rays, you’ll heal faster.

Lasers: “For those patients who don’t wish to wait the months (or even years) for the color to fade, there are a variety of laser systems that can help diminish the color quicker,” says Benjamin Garden, M.D., of Physicians Laser and Dermatology Institute. “These lasers target the blood vessels that leave a red spot, or target the pigment in the skin that makes a dark mark. These laser systems are very powerful and should only be performed by a doctor who has the proper training.”


Can Men Use Women’s Skincare Products?

How to Treat Textural Irregularities (Boxcar, Rolling, or Ice Pick Acne Scars)

Sunscreen + Retinol: “Sunscreen and retinols are baseline,” reminds Avnee Shah, M.D., of The Dermatology Group in New Jersey. Add these habits into your daily regimen, and never abandon them. They work to thwart further damage from the sun, and smooth and firm the skin over time by stimulating collagen (while preventing additional acne, too).

Microneedling With or Without Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): “Microneedling works by creating micro-injuries a few millimeters into the skin,” says Shah. “This promotes collagen remodeling, which allows scarring to improve.” (More on this in a bit.)

“I love microneedling for acne scars,” adds Lilly-Rose Paraskevas, M.D., of Rose Dermatology. “With every treatment, the scars are shallower and less noticeable. Even the redness within the scars can be improved. Unlike some laser treatments, there’s no risk of burns or discoloration from microneedling.”

Many doctors will combine this with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which involves the extraction of your own plasma (by first drawing the blood and separating the plasma in one session), and injecting it into the area to stimulate healing. (PRP can be paired with laser therapy, too.)

“Lately I’ve been stunned by the combination of microneedling with radiofrequency, when used alone or in conjunction with PRP,” says Martinez-Diaz. “I’ve been using the device Secret RF by Cutera with outstanding results. The device enables me to treat a wide variety of acne scars in different depths.” Just note you’ll need a series of treatments, so it can get a bit pricy, but it’s worth it.

“PRP heals the acne scars even faster and leads to reduced inflammation and overall improvement of skin tone,” adds Matthew Elias, D.O., of Elias Dermatology. “It’s by far one of the most popular treatments in our office.”


How to Pop a Pimple (and When to Leave Your Face Alone)

Lasers: Lasers are another frequently used solution for permanent scars, and they penetrate the skin much like a microneedle to stimulate collagen production and smoothness. “When looking at lasers, I like either a Fraxel or something like an Erbium for deeper scars (Sciton Joule is the class leader here),” says Dhaval Bhanusali, M.D. Ask your own dermatologist about these options for his or her feedback on your specific condition. “Fraxel has a 3-4 day downtime and patients usually need 3-5 treatments, whereas the Erbium laser has more like a 7-10 day downtime and patients see significant improvement in 1-2 sessions,” Bhanusali says.

Certain fractional lasers, such as the Erbium, can often target just the damaged skin, while leaving healthy cells intact. The CO2 laser is another option: “If you have ‘ice pick’ scars, as in the deep, narrow kind, then Fractionated CO2 laser treatments are best,” says Anne Marie McNeill, M.D., of Newport Beach Dermatology & Plastic Surgery. “It gives a permanent improvement in scars and also in general skin texture.”

Fillers: You can inject collagen into the skin, and these fillers will “lift” certain areas so the skin appears more smooth, plumping up some of those indentations. This works best for wider scars, called “rolling” scars, says McNeill. For this, she says to ask your dermatologist about fillers, such as Bellafill. In many cases, Bellafill treatments can last 5-10 years.

“Bellafill affords a long-term solution to acne scars by adding volume to the scar and keeping it at the same level as the surrounding tissue,” adds Elias.

Speak to your dermatologist about the type of scarring you have, and the best type of treatment available.

Women’s Ready-to-Wear Season in Paris: The Scene

There’s never a dull moment in the City of Light. Here, a smattering of ideas of what to do between fashion shows.
GENERATION US: Two new stores, run by former Colette employees, have emerged on the northern tip of the Rue Cambon in Paris following a broad reshuffling of retail space in the tony neighborhood. Adding a sheen of Colette-cool to the luxury stronghold, the stores offer a range of streetwear, watches, sneakers and magazines from a wide swath of brands.

Inside the new Nous store. 

The five-strong team behind Nous includes Olivier Breton, Marvin Dein, Enson Malbranche, Tarek Amoura and Sylvain Brondel. “After the closing of Colette, it was normal to continue our momentum, build our own project with the know-how and contacts we built up over so many years,” said Dein, who spent five of his 10 years at Colette buying sneakers.

The Nous facade. 

The triangular space at Number 48, opened first, sprinkling streetwear with art, watches from labels including Rolex, Label Noir and Romain Jérome, glasses from Gucci and Spektre, jewelry from Nina & Ko, Tom Wood and John Hardy, and high-tech objects from Bang & Olufsen and Hadro. Across the street are cosmetics and perfume from labels such as Codage,

A. Teodoro RTW Fall 2019

Albino Teodoro’s fall mood board had heraldic drawings from a Thirties linotype, the late designers Cristóbal Balenciaga and Gianfranco Ferré, and Fifties magazine covers designed by Roman Cieślewicz.
The hodgepodge of references yielded a charming collection that played around uniforms with a feminine touch, mostly pantsuits and coats. A double-breasted cashmere topper with structured shoulders and a column-like silhouette featured stitched piping and engraved metallic buttons with a military feel. Sleek suits were crafted from wool crepe in bright tones, such as magenta and aquamarine.
“There’s always a feminine touch I want to inject,” Teodoro said. To wit: a billowing collar added softness to a severe top made of black Vatican canvas, and ruffled sleeves added a dash of glamour to an elongated blazer.
For evening, the heraldic wallpaper prints appeared on a shirtdress and slouchy overcoat combo, which looked chic.

PARIS — Fans of Martin Margiela will have an opportunity to snap up some museum-grade items from the private collections of his inner circle during Artcurial’s upcoming auction of 277 rare and exceptional pieces by the Belgian designer.
Coming on the heels of two major Paris retrospectives last year at the Palais Galliera fashion museum and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, the online sale from March 6 to 11 coincides with a double anniversary: the birth of Maison Martin Margiela in 1989 and the departure of its reclusive founder in 2009.
Pénélope Blanckaert, Hermès vintage and fashion arts director at Artcurial, curated an exhibition of the lots with Christophe Brunnquell, former artistic director at Purple magazine. It will run at Artcurial’s headquarters from Feb. 26 to March 6, coinciding with Paris Fashion Week.
“It’s rare to have such a complete sale,” Blanckaert told WWD. “We have pieces from the first collection to the last. I love that — it’s truly a retrospective.”
The items on offer include selections from professional collectors like Emmanuelle and Philippe Harros, the duo behind Quidam de Revel, and Hideo Hashiura, the owner of cult Tokyo vintage shop Laila, who is believed to own around 4,000 Margiela pieces.

Lady Gaga Wears 128-Carat Tiffany Yellow Diamond at the Oscars

Lady Gaga has brought some extra star power to the Oscars red carpet — to the tune of a reported $ 30 million.

Presented under neon cloud shapes, Arthur Arbesser’s second collection for Fay, the Italian outerwear specialist owned by Tod’s group, was based around the idea of a timeless wardrobe. “I want to make sure it’s a brand that both my father and my nephew would want to wear,” explained the 36-year-old, who also designs for his own brand.
Looks from this coed collection were playfully layered. On women’s silhouettes, short leather gilets in rich bordeaux and cream were worn over coats in contrasting hues, transforming a classic wool peacoat into a statement piece. “The gilet becomes almost like an accessory,” Arbesser said. “There is this idea that you can easily spice up an item, while at the same time keeping it classic and functional.”
The collection felt current, which is partly due to its theme: Arbesser took inspiration from the symbol of the cloud in both the meteorological and digital sense, looking at our modern obsession with data storage. The designer swapped nylon for caramel leather on the brand’s signature “4 Ganci” jacket, recognizable thanks to its four hook fastenings, and added a hood, making it instantly more relaxed. Another version in pristine white vinyl looked fresh and modern.

EXCLUSIVE: 24 Sèvres to Launch Capsule With LVMH Prize Finalists

PARIS — Online retailer 24 Sèvres is celebrating this year’s edition of the LVMH Prize for Young Designers by distributing a capsule collection of outfits designed by the eight finalists in June, to be followed by a selection of pieces from the winner’s collection in the fall.
The global luxury web site owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton has been expanding the scope of its collaborations as online retailers seek to stand out in a crowded landscape by offering exclusive products.
The LVMH Prize finalists will be selected by a committee of experts during a showroom event at the luxury giant’s headquarters on March 1 and 2 during Paris Fashion Week.
The capsule is scheduled to go on sale online in early June, to coincide with the prize-giving ceremony where a jury — made up of designers including Nicolas Ghesquière, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Marc Jacobs — will designate the winner.
Eric Goguey, chief executive officer of 24 Sèvres, said the initiative was in line with the site’s ambition to provide a highly curated offering with a Parisian perspective. “As a digital site, we are very much in tune with the fast pace of young designers, who are themselves often very connected,” he

Chanel at the Oscars: 13 Iconic Karl Lagerfeld-Designed Red Carpet Looks

Karl Lagerfeld was a master of many things, from design to photography — but his red-carpet looks were especially spectacular. With the Academy Awards coming up on Sunday, WWD looks back at the late designer’s most memorable Chanel looks at the Oscars.
Historically, Lagerfeld’s take on Oscar fashion was about clean silhouettes and a neutral color palette fused with intricate, couture details such as embroidery and beading, as seen on the likes of Diane Kruger, Sarah Jessica Parker and Pharrell Williams.
Julianne Moore wore Chanel couture dresses back-to-back for her best actress win in 2015, and then again to present in 2016. Lagerfeld created a custom look in 2018 for Margot Robbie, for whom he designed a minimalist white gown with off-the-shoulder crystal embroidery, to critical acclaim.
Perhaps the most newsworthy Chanel look at the Oscars, however, came in 2001 when Jennifer Lopez wore a sweeping taupe ballgown with a transparent bodice. Only in Hollywood.
Click through the above gallery to see more of Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel designs on the Oscars’ red carpet.

Agnona RTW Fall 2019

This collection, in 50 shades of neutrals, might just win the prize for most comforting collection of Milan Fashion Week. Simon Holloway, Agnona’s artistic director, may have been going for grunge, but what he served up was so much better.
There were textured coats, some long and lean, others in bathrobe styles, wide-leg trouser suits with elongated jackets in chocolate, cream, taupe or olive, and turtlenecks roomy enough to accommodate two small people.
Ribbed scarves skimmed the floor, opaque knitwear fluttered and models wore beanies. Even the footwear was a comfort, cream combat boots or slip-on sandals and socks in stone, gray or mud.
Holloway said he was thinking about the moment he left university in the early Nineties, and that eye-opening grunge aesthetic, “but I wanted to do it in a super-elevated way.”
He certainly didn’t disappoint, enveloping his models in double-face cashmere, tweed jersey, flannel, leather and quilting right down to the shirts and underpinnings — manna for the Agnona customer who’ll want to wrap themselves up, kick back and hum a few strains of “Come as You Are.”

Wrangler Unveils Icons Collection With Soho Pop-up

RETRO FINDS: Wrangler has looked to its past for its latest range, dubbed Icons. The collection, which launches Feb. 25, will feature six reissued heritage styles including the 11MWZ, the first pair of jeans the brand ever created.
“We as a brand wanted to set a milestone for the story of Wrangler, our first global product range. We worked long and hard researching, aligning and developing what these Icons are,” said Sean Gormley, creative director of Wrangler.
To mark the occasion, Wrangler has launched a pop-up in Soho, London, inspired by a Seventies recording studio. It will be open until March 24. Customers who visit the pop-up will be able to view the archival pieces alongside their modern counterparts and be treated to weekly in-store live music nights featuring artists such as IAMDDB and Black Honey.
Wrangler will also host a three-day party during SXSW, South by Southwest music festival, which runs from March 8 to 17 in Austin for influencers and press.

16 Oscars Red Carpet Looks You Forgot Happened

Every year, the Oscars red carpet produces a number of standout looks that stand the course of time.
However, there are also looks that leave the cultural lexicon soon after the ceremony, but are still memorable in their own right.
For example, take Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon’s look at last year’s Academy Awards. Before Timothée Chalamet and Michael B. Jordan championed the harness during this year’s awards season, Rippon was seen sporting the look under a tuxedo, created by Moschino.

Before she was nominated for any Oscars, Nicole Kidman established herself as a red-carpet standout in 1997, when she arrived to the ceremony wearing one of John Galliano’s first designs as creative director at Dior: a chartreuse-colored silk dress with floral embroidery.

There were also the red-carpet flops, such as Juliette Lewis’ ill-advised cornrows in 1992 and Faith Hill’s rainbow Versace gown in 2002, and the more creative costumes, like costume designer Lizzy Gardiner’s American Express dress from 2004.

Max Mara Atelier Fall 2019

The coat, of course, is the first thing coming to people’s minds when they think about Max Mara. The brand’s iconic piece was celebrated with the Max Mara Atelier fall collection, 14 outerwear shapes injected with impeccable elegance.
Realized with couture-like constructions and luxurious materials, the collection took inspiration from the neo-expressionist artworks of Mimmo Paladino. Gold linings and details were hidden inside the pieces for an extra touch of exclusivity.
Looks telegraphed a discreet femininity influenced by a mannish sensibility, worked in a restrained color palette of black, gray-beige, rust, blue and orange. Styles included a covetable double-breasted model showing pleats on the side creating a charming 3D volume, a “foulard” design to softly wrap around the body, as well as a trench-like number cut slimmer through the bodice and then showing a slightly flared silhouette enhanced by an obi belt.
A urban attitude was introduced via a zippered cashmere bomber, the front crafted from mink fur, while the mohair cardigan-coat oozed luxurious ease.

Karl Lagerfeld Cremated in Nanterre

CLOSING CEREMONY: Karl Lagerfeld was cremated in a private ceremony in Nanterre, in the outskirts of Paris, on Friday, according to local reports.
Virginie Viard, his longtime right-hand woman who has taken over the creative reins at Chanel, was in attendance alongside a number of industry executives and friends of the designer, according to a report in Closer magazine. They included LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton chief Bernard Arnault, Sidney Toledano, Anna Wintour, Princess Caroline of Monaco, Carine Roitfeld and Lagerfeld’s bodyguard, Sébastien Jondeau.
A number of guests, including Inès de La Fressange and model Baptiste Giabiconi, are said to have headed to the Chanel headquarters on Rue Cambon after the ceremony.
The couturier, who died on Tuesday, always made clear that he did not want a public funeral after his own death, telling Numéro magazine in an interview last year that he preferred for his ashes to be scattered near those of his mother Elisabeth and those of his cat Choupette, should she pass away before him.
According to a report in Le Monde, part of his ashes will join those of his longtime partner Jacques de Bascher, who died of AIDS in 1989.

The 5 Most Effective Ways to Regrow Thinning Hair

At the first sign of hair loss—or even before that, if you’re proactive—you should visit your board-certified dermatologist to discuss the latest and most effective retention and prevention tactics. (Assuming you want to keep your hair, that is.)

There are numerous options available to men now, and they each have extremely high success rates. We tapped our network of experts to get their opinions on the most common methods. Before we get into them, here’s what some of those board-certified dermatologists have to say about the road ahead.

 

 

1. Start Early

“We know the best chance to regrow, retain, and fortify hair is with early intervention,” says Robert Finney, M.D. of Heights Dermatology and Laser. “If you start to notice thinning, that’s when you should begin treatment. Don’t be in denial.”

The longer you wait, the less effective results are: “Men who begin to notice a bit of early thinning with hair loss starting at the vertex of their scalp, but who aren’t completely bald, have the best chance to slow down loss, halt loss altogether (by maintaining their hair density), and even regrow some or all of their hair,” says Laura Haygood, M.D., of Adagio Dermatology & Aesthetics. “This means the earlier you start, the better the results, in general.”


7 Biggest Grooming Mistakes Balding Men Make

2. Recession Is an Exception

“A receding frontal hairline rarely responds to treatment,” warns Haygood. “Men may focus on regrowing hair along the entirety of the frontal, crown, and vertex of the scalp.” The vertex is that transition point between the crown and midscalp.

3. Be Patient

“Whichever hair treatment you choose, it’s important not to give up on the treatment too quickly and stick with it for at least 3-6 months,” says Lindsey Yeh, M.D. It takes time for hair to grow and actually see changes.

You’re playing a long game (forever, even): “Once you notice improvement, you must maintain the treatment regimen to retain these results,” Haygood adds. “So, if and when you decide to stop treatment, the hair simply gradually reverts to the density it would have otherwise been at that point in your life.”


6 Best Fixes for Hair Loss

The 5 Best Methods to Regrow Hair

1. The Pill

One of the most common means of regrowing hair is a 1mg prescription of finasteride. (That’s its generic name. You may know it as Propecia.) It inhibits the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which gradually suffocates and shrinks hair follicles, causing hair to thin and fall away before the follicle dries up.

“Oral finasteride is a great treatment for male-pattern baldness,” says Anne Marie McNeill, Ph.D M.D. of Newport Beach Dermatology. “It’s simple, safe, and one study just showed it reduces your chance of prostate cancer, aside from helping to grow hair.” As we mentioned, start when you’re just starting to thin, and it’ll help you keep the hair you have.

“Oral finasteride is one of the best treatment options available,” echoes Finney. However, a small percentage of people can experience a sexual side effect, like decreased libido and erectile dysfunction. “If someone has tried this and experienced those side effects, or is concerned about them, I shift the discussion toward a topical finasteride and minoxidil combination, like HairStim by Hair Medicinals,” Finney says. “HairStim is a prescription solution that combines these drugs—and the minoxidil is at higher concentrations than you can get over the counter.” (See the next tip for more on minoxidil.) “I’ve found patients who had a sexual side effect from finasteride orally, don’t get it from topicals.” That’s because it’s not getting absorbed in your blood and traveling around your body.


Thinning Up Top? Here Are 5 Ways to Get Thicker, Fuller Hair

2. The Potion

The other at-home option you hear about most often is minoxidil, the generic for Rogaine. It works by stimulating blood circulation to hair follicles, which in turn fattens the hair shaft and strengthens the follicle. It’s administered as a topical solution or foam twice daily.

“One tip I share with patients is that there are special compounding pharmacies (often the Mom & Pop pharmacies we love, rather than the big chain pharmacies) who are happy to provide an even stronger version,” says Haygood. “Many of my patients like the 7% minoxidil, although in the end I recommend choosing based on cost, convenience, and how the product feels on your skin, especially since you’ll be using it on a daily basis.”

Nearly every doctor you consult will advise combination therapy to further boost your results, and a combination of finasteride + minoxidil is the most common pairing.

3. The Plasma
In the last couple years, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has grown enormously in popularity. It involves extracting one’s own blood, separating the plasma (which takes 10 minutes, in office), then injecting that plasma back into the patient’s scalp. Plasma has active growth factors that can stimulate inactive or weakened follicles. It’s also a common combination therapy method, paired with finasteride, minoxidil, or both.

“PRP is my favorite treatment for hair growth, and studies show 75 percent of men see [significant] hair growth,” says Anna Karp, D.O. of Skin Institute of New York. “I recommend two treatments, one month apart, at minimum.” (Many doctors will advocate for 4 monthly treatments out the gate, followed by an annual top-off.)

“PRP is natural and doesn’t require patients to remember to do anything at home,” says Finney. “It’s a much newer treatment, but has proven over the last several years to be a great option to regrow, retain, and fortify.”


How to Treat Thinning Hair: the Modern Guide

4. The Program
An effective at-home supplement and grooming regimen can also fortify hair and help revive some of the weakened, near-death follicles. It’s important to note that these are not nearly as promising as the above methods, but supplements are also no gimmick: They provide the nourishment your hair needs to stay strong. So, perhaps it’s as much a prevention and proactive method.

“We find by combining as many techniques as possible to combat all the possible causes we will yield the best results,” says Matthew Elias, D.O., of Elias Dermatology.

“I typically recommend a hair vitamin such as Nutrafol, Viviscal, or biotin forte with zinc,” says Lauren Meshkov Bonati, M.D., of Mountain Dermatology. “I also suggest they use Nioxin shampoo and conditioner.”

5. The Procedure
If all else fails, or if those patches are just too far along, it might be time to consider a hair transplant—if you’re that invested in this process. Talk to your doctor about the best options available, and for his or her recommendation on where to do it. This should really be a last resort, since results vary drastically.

Know that emerging technologies are suggesting we may soon be able to clone hairs and grow them anywhere we please. But in the meantime, this method extracts thicker hairs from the sides and back of your head, and places them in areas of inactive growth to “fill in” the hair. It takes a while to see results, too: After a couple months, the transplanted hair will fall out, only to begin its first new growth cycle. So, once that springs out and fills in, it could take 4-6 months to see lasting results (albeit temporary ones, if you aren’t proactive about retaining it this go around).

“I usually encourage patients to try topicals for 6+ months before deciding if it’s worked for them,” says Avnee Shah, M.D., of the Dermatology Group. “[Still then,] I encourage a combination of therapies. The more the merrier.”

Vogue Italia and Yoox Celebrate Upcycling Capsule

MILAN — For the second edition of The Next Green Talents award, Vogue Italia and Yoox invited seven young designers to create a unique silhouette using the sustainable technique of upcycling.
Guests flocked to the Palazzo Morando on Wednesday night to discover the selection of international designers handpicked by Sara Sozzani Maino, head of Vogue Talents. Each designer unveiled both a limited-edition silhouette, created using items from the Yoox archive and sold on the Yoox web site, and their latest collection, a selection of which will hit the online store in September.
British designer Bethany Williams had just flown in from London, where she received the Queen Elizabeth II award for her “Adelaide House” collection, which she presented during men’s fashion week in London. (The previous recipient of the award is Richard Quinn, who was graced with the presence of the Queen herself on the day of the ceremony.)
Alongside her fall 2019 collection, created in collaboration with a Liverpool-based shelter for women, Williams unveiled an upcycled denim look crafted with old Yoox prototypes. The denim was unstitched to create a completely new silhouette and screen-printed with illustrations by Giorgia Chiarion.
“Upcycling is a passion of mine,” the designer said. “I love taking something

Moschino RTW Fall 2019

Everyone was a winner at Moschino Thursday night when creative director Jeremy Scott created his own “Price Is Right”-style game show as a backdrop for his fall collection, complete with shiny new car, washer-dryer, bedroom set, refrigerator and more.
“It’s hard not to be a fan of game shows growing up in America,” Scott said backstage. “You see glamorous girls in glamorous outfits and it’s all about the luck of chance. It’s a very American idea that you can turn your life around, go from rags to riches with that lottery ticket or by selling that screenplay. There is something about it that captures the imagination.”
Students of Scott may remember that this is not the pop provocateur’s first entrance into game-show territory. In 2001, “Wheel of Fortune” (the real one on TV) invited Scott to make over Vanna White, back when he was still an up-and-comer on the L.A. scene and not atop a European luxury brand. For five shows, she wore Scott-designed outfits while turning the tiles, including a dress printed with dollar bills bearing the designer’s face.

Supreme Finds Temporary Home on Bowery During Remodeling

The center of gravity of New York’s streetwear scene moved four blocks east on Thursday as Supreme set up a temporary retail home at 190 Bowery Street for the launch of its latest collection.
While the brand’s home base on Lafayette Street has gone dark from time to time as the brand switched between seasons, the store is closed now for remodeling after nearly 25 years.
The brand’s fans got the message and queued up outside the Bowery Street door, which gives only a hint at an oversize version of the red-and-white Supreme logo through a row of windows. The store features a typically sparse interior, with hats, sneakers, shirts, skate decks and the rest lined up along the walls. Occupying the middle of the space is a baby blue, comic Sphinx-like sculpture flashing a peace sign.
Among the latest from the brand are a green and black Supreme/Castelli cycling jersey, a metallic jacquard crewneck, a reversible faux suede leopard coat and a drum set, co-branded with Pearl.
Supreme designs its stores internally and it remains to be seen just how the original space will be transformed. Word is the location will be closed for one to two seasons.

How to Pop a Pimple (and When to Leave Your Face Alone)

It’s natural to want to pop every pimple that rears its ugly (red, white, or black) head on your face. But resist the urge: You can do a lot of damage to the skin, the consequences of which you’ll be living with far longer than it would take for the pimple to heal. That’s why it’s important to know which kinds of pimples are even poppable in the first place, and how to actually pop them on your own, to avoid further problems.

 

 

Technically, you aren’t supposed to pop any of them on your own, advises Anna Guanche, M.D., board-certified dermatologist and celebrity beauty expert. It’s something you should let your own board-certified dermatologist handle, or minimize with a good at-home skincare regimen. But—doctor’s advice aside—some of us are obviously still going to pop at home. So what’s the least destructive way to proceed?

We got a few suggestions on the matter from Guanche, reticent as she is to advise any at-home popping. Before we get into that, it feels necessary to shed light on one frequent cause of acne, particularly for gym-goers: “Whey protein has been linked with an onset of acne,” Guanche says. “Physically active men who are breaking out should take a look at their protein powder.”


The Skincare Products a Dermatologist Travels With

How to Know if a Pimple Is Safe to Pop

Again, because we have to say it, try to avoid picking at your skin. “Popping pimples is known to lead to lifelong scarring and more acne,” says Guanche. But if you must, here’s a breakdown of types of pimples, along with their poppability.

Never, Ever Pop:

“Undergrounders or cystic acne should never be touched,” Guanche stresses. This is the one hard rule—do not even touch them. “They can worsen with the intense pressure, and will often lead to a ‘backwards volcano eruption.’” Secondly, she adds that inflammatory papules or slightly raised red bumps on the skin should also never be popped, since nothing is going to come out. You’re just going to add unnecessary pressure and harm the skin.

Proceed With Caution:

“Blackheads should only be squeezed out under steam, and in a clean environment,” says Guanche. (And, ideally, by a professional.)

While popping whiteheads seems obvious—that raised, white or yellow pustule is just begging for a squeeze!—Guanche says it’s risky since dermatologists require a blade “to create an opening for the keratin to come out.” By popping it on your own, you risk scarring and creating even more acne by doing so.


Why Iceland’s Blue Lagoon Is So Good for Your Skin

How to Properly Pop a Pimple

Guanche (still reticent about any at-home popping), says that if the pimple has a white pustule and you plan to pop it, then first take a warm shower to loosen it up. “After the shower, apply a gentle cloth to both sides of the pimple and push slightly downward, with gentle pressure instead of pushing your fingers together.” She says that if you push your fingers together, sometimes you can cause additional irritation to the surrounding skin, which could lead to a red or dark scar.

After popping, dab on a small amount of antibiotic ointment and let it heal in peace.

Why You Shouldn’t Pop Prematurely

“When a pimple is popped, it leads to keratin (the protein that clogs pores) moving further down into the skin, and the skin doesn’t like this,” Guanche says. “The keratin is seen by the immune system, and heavy inflammation sets in.” Now you’ve got even worse problems.

How to Heal Pimples—Without Popping

Leave a pimple alone? Impossible, you say. But really, resist the urge to burst that baby open, and if it’s persistent or powerful or painful, then book an appointment with your board-certified dermo right away. In the meantime, Guanche suggests a warm compress and a dot of over-the-counter hydrocortisone to help reduce inflammation and heal the pimple.


Try These 6 Products to Protect Your Skin This Winter

The Best Way to Prevent Pimples

If you don’t want to deal with any of this, then double down on your skincare regimen. Guanche says this is the best way to avoid acne all together: “See your board-certified dermatologist for a regimen that may include certain topical prescriptions. This regimen should also include a cleanser, sunscreen, and moisturizer. Check out the ultimate skin regimen we got from a handful of board-certified dermatologists.

And note that regimens don’t fix your skin overnight. Some products take 4-6 weeks for the results to really show themselves—and even longer for prescription-grade products like retinol (which is one of the best products to heal and prevent acne; ask your dermo about a prescription-strength option).

When to See a Dermatologist

Guanche says to visit your board-certified dermatologist if your pimple is any of the following: huge, extremely tender, near the eye socket, or if the skin around the pimple is also reddened. “Your doctor may be able to offer a kenalog injection (a cortisone/steroid shot to reduce inflammation). This could help your symptoms in less than 24 hours.”

Karl Lagerfeld’s Best Chanel Red Carpet Looks of All Time

Karl Lagerfeld has designed no shortage of memorable red carpet looks.
The late Chanel fashion designer was tasked with dressing both his muses, such as Cara Delevingne and Keira Knightley, along with A-list celebrities during awards season, including Emma Stone and Margot Robbie.

No stranger to the Met Gala red carpet, Lagerfeld was responsible for the looks for both Yara Shahidi and Lily-Rose Depp’s first times attending the annual costume event. Shahidi, for example, attended her first Met Gala last year wearing a Chanel Couture tulle dress with an intricate full-length beading.

Chanel spokeswomen, Julianne Moore and Marion Cotillard, also have a long history of being dressed in Lagerfeld’s creations. Most notably, Moore picked up her first Academy Award in 2015 wearing a Chanel Couture gown made with 80,000 sequins.

Au Jour Le Jour RTW Fall 2019

Setting aside the ironic, playful graphics, which characterized their early efforts, Diego Marquez and Mirko Fontana embraced a more urban, glamorous aesthetic.
“The irony is still there but is expressed in a different way,” said Marquez, referring in particular to the intentionally wrong proportions characterizing some of the pieces. For example, a pair of jeans showed an exaggerated high waist and a T-shirt had oversize, boxy shoulders.
A playful touch was introduced via fox fur coats worked in neon colors, also appearing on the threads giving an eye-catching touch to cable knit sweaters and minidresses, while a range of frocks, which seemed designed for young disco queens, featured precious crystal embroideries and cascades of degrade sequins.
Even if the designers’ intention to step out of their comfort zone is definitely remarkable, this collection, which missed a certain cohesiveness and probably the so-called X factor, demonstrated that Au Jour Le Jour still needs to find clear aesthetic codes to fully develop its repositioning strategy.

EXCLUSIVE: Giorgio Armani on Coed Show, Re-branding and Emporio Armani Caffè and Ristoranti

MILAN — Giorgio Armani is shaking things up.
For the first time, the designer will hold a coed show for his signature line on the evening of Feb. 23 at Silos, the exhibition space he opened in 2015 — which is also a first after years of showing at his Teatro. A day earlier, his Emporio Armani Caffè & Ristorante, closed since May, will reopen after a complete makeover (the Emporio show will take place on Feb. 21).
A pioneer in the arena of designer food and hospitality, Armani felt it was time to revisit the location, which opened in 2000, and move on from a graphic setting to a warmer atmosphere.

Can Men Use Women’s Skincare Products?

Using skincare products designed for women is not bad for your skin, but it’s unnecessary. Men’s skin is different, primarily due to the presence of facial hair.

 

 

In order to sustain those hair follicles, a man’s facial skin is thicker, and the blood supply richer. Follicles secrete more natural oils. When men shave, it acts as an exfoliant, getting rid of dead skin cells. And men’s skin is not exposed to the same hormonal variations as women’s.


Skincare 101: Dos and Don’ts for Better Skin

All these factors make men’s skin less susceptible to signs of aging. This is most obvious on the upper lip. Virtually all women of a certain age have vertical lip lines, but it’s rare for men. Expensive anti-wrinkle ingredients, such as alpha hydroxy acids, peeling agents, and peptides, are unnecessary.

There are, of course, some needs that are the same. Men’s facial skin loses elasticity in a fashion similar to women’s, so products that help build collagen, particularly vitamin C serum, should be used daily. A moisturizer with sunscreen is also a good idea. Few men need to apply moisturizers more than once daily, and a two-in-one makes it easy.


Try These 6 Products to Protect Your Skin This Winter

Embrace a low-maintenance routine. In the morning, wash your face and shave, then apply a serum, followed by a moisturizer with SPF. The key is sticking to it.

Damian Lewis, Helen McCrory Talk Fashion, New Projects at London Shows

FASHION ROUNDS: Husband-and-wife actors Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory kicked off their week in style, attending a range of fashion shows on Monday, including Erdem, Roksanda and Christopher Kane. “I love the glamour and the theater of it: These shows are like 15-minute or five-minute plays,” said McCrory, who said she sees fashion as “a great, big, theatrical dress-up box.”
McCrory, who plays Aunt Polly in the British TV show “Peaky Blinders,” about gangsters in post World War One England, said she also wanted to cheer on her pals Erdem Moralioglu and Roksanda Ilincic. I go to see and support their work just like they would come and see me in a play or film. We support each others as artists in London.”
Having just wrapped up series five of “Peaky Blinders,” the British actress has had her hands full with Tom Rob Smith’s new BBC drama “MotherFatherSon,” in which she will star alongside Richard Gere, Billy Howle and Pippa Bennett-Warner.
Lewis, meanwhile, is working on the new season of “Billions,” reprising his act as the ambitious billionaire Bobby Axelrod and playing alongside Paul Giamatti. That said, there’s one role he can’t see himself taking on in the future: Fashion designer. “People have seen my sense

Emilia Wickstead RTW Fall 2019

Emilia Wickstead immersed herself in “The Godfather” trilogy, enchanted by the quintessentially Southern Italian charm and refinement that defined Francis Ford Coppola’s film series.
For her latest fall presentation, she took over the Art Deco restaurant Le Caprice, hosting an intimate salon-style show and transporting her guests back to this nostalgic universe, complete with classic Italian music, head scarves, pearls and lavish fabrics galore.
The character of Mary Corleone — played by Sofia Coppola in the film — and her signature berets were at the center of the story line dreamed up by Wickstead.
The designer also drew from the men’s wear codes on-screen, delivering tailored jumpsuits and mannish coats in a traditional palette of chocolate brown, or draping leather over a suit — a reference to the movies’ distinct gangster vibe and abundance of leather jackets.
Wickstead ensured that she translated this old-school charm to her own universe of modern femininity. Cue androgynous wool tweeds done in midi dresses with voluminous long sleeves, pleated A-line dresses featuring wallpaper prints that could have easily been taken out of one of the lavish rooms on the movie set and romantic bouclé tweed suits accessorized with pearl-embellished headscarves, like the ones worn by Corleone.
For the finalé, Wickstead

Eyes On Ukrainian Outerwear ‘Ochi’

Best known for its top-selling yellow trenchcoat and with its latest collection to be stocked by Net-a-porter, Ochi outerwear is setting its “eyes” on the international fashion market. The brand name translates to “eyes” in English from Ukrainian and has captured the gaze of fashion model Cate Underwood as well as Vogue Ukraine’s fashion director Julie Pelipas, both seen sporting the outerwear.
Here, Ochi’s Iana Kuznietsova, founder and designer of the brand, shares her insights into the target customer, the company’s market position and its distribution approach.

WWD: In three words, how would you describe the Ochi brand? Who is the target customer?
Iana Kuznietsova: Ochi is about movement and travel. I create clothes for the so-called “nomadic” women who are sensual and strong. Sometimes they need their outerwear to provide outward defense, and our trenchcoats work as a shield and a touchpoint to the world at the same time.
WWD: Being based in Ukraine, how does your environment inform your design process? What are the main fashion hubs in Ukraine? 
I.K.: Although Ukraine’s main fashion hub is its capital, Kyiv, our brand is based on the South of Ukraine, in Odessa. Powerful sea and sun energy bring us unlimited inspiration.

The 7 Best Customized Hair, Skin, and Cologne Brands for Men

In the grooming industry, 2019 will be known as the year of customized care. More and more brands are allowing consumers to identify concerns and goals as they pertain to skin, hair, hygiene, and more.

 

 

They ask you to complete online questionnaires—some simple, some insanely extensive—and pack their products with ingredients, and even scents, that address your wants and needs on a granular level. After all, if you’ve got curly, coarse, and oily hair as well as dandruff, your shampoo and conditioner should have different ingredients than the guy with straight, fine hair with no flaking. Think of all the possible skincare combinations, too, when you factor in oil levels, age, environmental factors, and more.

Here are seven brands that helped launch the phenomenon, and each company’s approach to customized products. If you’re less than satisfied with your current regimen, it might be time to invest in something tailored precisely to you.


The Best Men’s Grooming Products to Take on the Go

 

Function Of

What it’s for: Customized hair care

The Function Of Beauty site prompts you to create your hair profile. Is it wavy, curly, or straight? Is it fine or coarse? Oily or dry, or neither? Next, you input up to five “hair goals”, which could be anything from soothing your scalp to volumizing, oil control to minimizing frizz. This all determines which ingredients go into each product. You pick individual colors for your shampoo and conditioner set, as well as a scent, and the brand even prints your name on the side of each bottle. Costs vary depending on the sizes you order, but if you get 16 oz. bottles of shampoo and conditioner (which should last 3 months), it’s under $ 50.

Curology

What it’s for: Customized skincare

Curology’s online quiz asks about your major skincare concerns and goals, then generates a “superbottle” night cream just for you (once a dermatologist reviews your results). Apply it before you sleep, so your skin’s overnight regenerative cycle works with the product to correct things like acne, signs of aging, or uneven skin tone. You can order the superbottle along with a standard cleanser and daytime moisturizer, too, or just opt for the standalone night cream.

Clinique

What it’s for: Customized skincare

With the recent launch of iD, Clinique enters the custom skincare game with its own refined approach to the process. First, you pick your base—moisturizing lotion, oil-control gel, or hydrating jelly—then you select your “insert cartridge” from the list of five: fatigue, lines & wrinkles, pores & uneven texture, irritation, or uneven skin tone. Any of the 15 potential results costs comes in under $ 40.

Hawthorne

What it’s for: Customized fragrance and hygiene

Hawthorne works with some of the industry’s most sought-after perfumers to create a bunch of different fragrances to match each customer’s personality. You fill out their quiz that factors in things like diet and personal interests, and they set you up with two fragrances: one for “work” and one for “play”, both for a total $ 100. They complement each other nicely, but more importantly, they complement you. And just recently, Hawthorne expanded into scented deodorant, soap, and body wash, too, so you can smell and feel as fresh as each scent you’re “prescribed”—whether you’re wearing it or not.

Geologie

What it’s for: Customized skincare

Geologie’s diagnostic quiz is a little simpler than the competition, but that’s not to any detriment: They still address the core things like aging, inflammation, acne, and so forth, with dozens of possible outcomes for the five-product assortment they’ll send you. First they’ll start you on a 30-day trial with the entire set—cleansers for your sink and shower, moisturizers for day and night, and an eye cream. After you test them out, you can order a 90-day supply of whichever products you like best, or all of them if you so choose.

Prose

What it’s for: Hair care

Prose’s quiz asks you questions about your hair’s thickness, length, typical hair fall patterns, oil levels, as well as your diet, zip code (to determine pollution), and more. You tell Prose your goals, what kind of fragrance to plug into the formula, and then Prose generates a product to target your key concerns—with various levels of intensity (like if you’ve got severe dandruff but moderate oil production). They give you the option of a pre-shampoo hair mask, shampoo, and conditioner, all for $ 88, or you can pick and choose the ones you want to buy (for $ 38, $ 25, $ 25, respectively). There’s a hair oil launching in spring, as well, which can then be added to your order.

Proven

What it’s for: Customized skincare

Proven is the most complex of the customized skincare companies, since it uses a database called the Skin Genome Project to create its products: The SGP crawls 20,238 skincare ingredients, 100,000 products, 8 million testimonials, and over 4,000 scientific journal articles to identify the most effective and favorable results for Proven’s clients. When you complete their extensive skincare profile—which even factors in the water quality of your zip code—a dermo reviews the data and prescribes a 3-product set, including a customized cleanser, moisturizer, and night cream, all of which have ingredients tailored to your various needs. The 2-month supply runs $ 145, but the steeper cost is worth the upgrade if you want the most tailored fit of all.

Burberry RTW Fall 2019

With a debut collection that’s just hitting the shop floor, Riccardo Tisci is still under the microscope at Burberry, and he’s had to work rapidly — and publicly. There are shareholders to please and stores to fill, 442 worldwide, plus franchises and wholesale outlets, and a drumbeat of monthly T-shirt, hoodie and accessories drops sold via Instagram. The company, which has a market capitalization of 8 billion pounds on the London Stock Exchange, is also in transition mode under new chief executive officer Marco Gobbetti, with big plans for growth.
Tisci took a step forward for fall, tightening up the show, clarifying his vision and making a return to that classy streetwear for which he’s known. His lineup featured tailored coats with puffers tacked to the back or with big faux furry hoods bursting from the collars. He tore apart rugby shirts and stitched them into a dress, punk-ed up leather baseball jackets with little phrases like “Burberry isn’t good for you” down the woolen sleeve, and gave a shearling a tough edge with slicks of black patent leather.
The designer has never made a secret of his intentions: He wants to dress everybody — mothers and daughters, fathers and sons —

Adidas Originals Unveils Collaboration With Ji Won Choi

TAKE FIVE: New York-based Korean fashion designer Ji Won Choi is the latest emerging talent Adidas Originals tapped to design a capsule women’s ready-to-wear collection.
“The idea was to take the very classic Adidas tracksuit and reinterpret it with my aesthetic in five different ways. I took the very iconic Adidas stripes and repeated it everywhere to create a consistent and cohesive visual language and merge it with the sportiness and playfulness of the brand,” Choi explained during the presentation.
The clothes were shown in a huge basement near Camden market during London Fashion Week. A colorful 3-D maze was built and models walked up and down on interconnected staircases as in an infinite loop.
Alex Weiland, the director of special projects at Adidas who discovered Choi on Instagram, said it’s “important for us to give a new platform for young designers. London has such an appetite for emerging design talents. So we decide to take her here.”
She said the first drop is slated for Feb. 23 at retailers including Kith, Dover Street Market and Barneys New York. A second drop in a black-and-white colorway will happen in May.

5 Things You Should Consider When Buying a Pre-Owned Watch

When it comes to shopping for your next luxury watch, you should begin your search by first asking yourself a few simple questions.

“What is your budget? Start there,” says Nathan Nerswick, a client services manager at Crown & Caliber, the Atlanta-based online watch shop where you can sell luxury timepieces and buy everything from a used OMEGA Speedmaster to a Rolex GMT-Master II.

“A lot of people don’t want to talk about money, but I think that’s kind of a baseline,” Nerswick tells Men’s Journal in the video above. “You need to be able to say, ‘Hey, I’m willing to spend $ 5,000.’ Cool, let’s look at $ 5,000 watches.”


Inside the Lab: Crown & Caliber, the Online Luxury Watch Shop

Knowing your budget can help you narrow down your search, especially when you’re looking at the endless options online. Next, Nerswick explains to also focus on the other watches you own. “There’s a big difference between it being your first watch or your fifth watch,” he says, “and so that can really inform the direction we’re going.” But there’s plenty more to consider, especially for the place you’re buying the watch from.

“When you’re looking to buy a watch from anyone—certainly online—the No. 1 thing you need to ask them is if they have actual trained watchmakers,” says Jason Allen, Crown & Caliber’s chief marketing officer. The online shop has its own in-house watchmakers in Atlanta who authenticate and work on every watch that goes up on the brand’s website.

Edward Crutchley and Colovos Win Woolmark Prize

LONDON — Edward Crutchley and Colovos have been named the winners of this year’s International Woolmark Prize.
A panel of judges, which included designer Alber Elbaz, InStyle editor in chief Laura Brown and actor Gwendoline Christie, chose the winners from among 12 finalists.
Colovos won in the women’s wear category and Crutchley won for men’s wear as well as the Innovation award. The winners were announced during London Fashion Week.
The competition recognizes design talent that uses Australian Merino wool in beautiful and creative ways. Previous winners include Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent.
“I think for someone who is so focused on textiles, it’s really a validation for me that what I do is of value, and I think that’s something that we all look for in our work,” said Crutchley, who is known for working with artisanal textiles.
For the collection that he presented to the panel, Crutchley said he wanted to set himself a challenge by creating pieces using 100 percent merino wool. “No blends, no mixes and to achieve as many different levels of texture, weights, and drapes as I could,” he said.
Looks ranged from devorée pieces and intricate jacquards to tie-dyes.
Crutchley and Nicole and Michael Colovos of Colovos are awarded 200,000 Australian dollars,

Halpern RTW Fall 2019

Some designers are responding to the dire political mood in the U.K. by darkening their color palettes and toughening up their fabrics.
Michael Halpern is instead delving further into his fantastical world of sequins and all things shiny and over-the-top.
For his fall range — shown in the Deco ballroom of a Mayfair hotel — he referenced Russian illustrator Erté to create striking Twenties-inspired silhouettes and colorful, multilayered prints echoing Erté’s fantastical illustrations.
“There’s nothing rooted in reality here. Why can’t a fish have wings?” said Halpern, pointing to a print featuring leopard patterns mixed with illustrations of fish morphing into birds.
He wanted to flex his muscle beyond his signature sequined creations, applying his fantasy prints on voluminous duchesse satin coats; showcasing his draping skills with a series of more pared-down jersey maxidresses in bright yellow or fuchsia; or playing with a striking gel organza fabric and working it into a draped minidress or a one-shouldered top featuring a long train.
Yet Halpern is not ready to completely let go of sequins just yet. In fact, he thinks he has “barely scratched the surface with what you can do with sequins.”
He sprinkled a healthy dose of sparkly creations here, renewing them by cutting or

Phoebe English Shows Fall 2019 Collection in Exhibition Alongside 30 Marionettes

EXHIBITIONIST: Phoebe English showcased pieces from her fall 2019 women’s wear offering at the Morley Gallery in South London at an exhibition called “Inanimate, Animate. (Only) Half the Reflection,” a show in two parts, the second of which features 30 charming marionettes wearing to-scale pieces from her archive.
The person-sized clothes, which made their debut during the men’s shows last month in a presentation, were suspended from the ceiling on rotating mechanisms that afforded close-up inspection of the intricate techniques that have earned her a loyal following.
There was a black pinafore dress with T-shaped cuts outlined with wide satin stitch embroidery, and a delicate white mesh harness.
“We call this coat, ‘The Coat of Dreams (and of Nightmares)’,” said English, fondly nodding to a black topper made from a great many patches of recycled black fabric, each piece encased in fine silk tulle. The kind of deceptively simple, thing that a cursory glance sets the mind to thinking, “Right, black coat” but an up-close eye-ball reveals all its complexities.
The space was scented by Timothy Han, who used the aromas of birch tar and dry wheat from his “On the Road” fragrance to emphasize English’s focus on natural sustainable fabrics, and Johanna Burnheart performed
