After traveling the world, Tommy Hilfiger is bringing its TommyNow fashion show back to New York.
On Sept. 8, the company will showcase the fall 2019 Tommy x Zendaya collaborative collection, codesigned by Tommy Hilfiger and global brand ambassador Zendaya, at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. The choice of the Apollo Theater confirms a WWD report on Jan. 8.
The show is expected to continue the themes of inclusion, diversity and empowerment that Hilfiger and Zendaya brought to the TommyNow runway show in Paris for spring 2019. That runway show, which paid homage to the 1973 French-U.S. “Battle of Versailles,” featured an all-black cross-generational cast including Grace Jones, Beverly Johnson, Pat Cleveland, Grace Jones, Veronica Webb, Halima Aden, Jourdan Dunn and Winnie Harlow. Roller disco dancers on an illuminated runway warmed up the crowd of more than 1,000 guests.
The Apollo show marks Hilfiger’s return to New York, having shown in the city for fall 2016. Since that initial presentation, the worldwide tour touched down in Los Angeles for spring 2017, London for fall 2017, Milan for spring 2018, Shanghai for fall 2018, and then Paris.
“After traveling the world with TommyNow and an unforgettable show in Paris with Zendaya, I’m excited to return
TRIESTE, Italy — International Talent Support continues to highlight creativity in its purest form.
The 17th edition of the event aimed at promoting the next generation of designers and offering them financial support, as well as publicity, named its winners on Friday night here asking the more than 800 applicants to develop “sincerely true” collections, sticking to their own vision.
The contest returned last year after a one-year hiatus and the newly found enthusiasm pushed Barbara Franchin, founder and director of the competition, to raise the bar higher.
On Friday night, an international jury gathered at the Magazzino 42 venue, a former warehouse on one of the Italian city’s many piers, to evaluate the works of the 22 finalists. The projects included fashion, accessories and jewelry. Collections were showcased with a runway show, while the other projects were displayed through a dedicated exhibition.
Retracing the history of ITS, Franchin noted young talents have changed over the years in terms of age, origin and approach to the industry. To wit, half of the finalists this year came from the Asia-Pacific region and Franchin said the talents are “much more self-conscious today. They are more focused and straightforward as they look for their identity, without necessarily
Hair vitamins, defective lipstick, body shaming and a bribery scandal.
These are just some of the catalysts behind 2019’s biggest influencer controversies that have captivated millions of followers on social media, launching a number of think pieces on “cancel culture,” the limits of sponsored content and society’s overall fascination with influencers and social media.
From Olivia Jade’s involvement in the college admissions scandal to a feud between Something Navy blogger and designer, Arielle Charnas, and actress Amanda Seyfriend, here is a breakdown of all the influencer drama so far this year.

While Olivia Jade Giannulli — known on the Internet as just Olivia Jade — was already a well-known influencer with 1.3 million followers on Instagram, she was catapulted into the spotlight thanks to her famous parents, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli and “Full House” actress Lori Loughlin, who were charged in the now infamous college admissions scandal, where more than 40 adults allegedly used bribes to get their children admitted to elite colleges.

For trendsetters, fashionistas, and style influencers, this is one of the best shopping days of the year. Today is basically Black Friday in summer for fashion trendsetters and style influencers, because the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts July 12 at 12:30pm EST.
Starting today and through August 4, Nordstrom is cutting prices on virtually everything in the store and sitewide, with a particular focus on name brands like Hugo Boss, Rag & Bone, Salvatore Ferragamo, Tumi, Ted Baker London, etc. We’re talking major deals on luxe brands, and amazing bargains on everything else, including an awesome selection of gear from hot brands like Patagonia, Topman, BP, Nike, Ray-Ban, adidas, Bonobos, and many, many more.
There is a huge, amazing bonus—if you can make it happen. Technically, the sale doesn’t open to the public until next Friday, July 19. But starting today you can get early access to the choicest items for the next seven days—if you have a Nordstrom card. If you need one, you can sign up here, free.
Get over to nordstrom.com, log in or sign up for an account, and link your Nordstrom credit card. Now you can access all the amazing deals and fantastic bargains way before anyone else.
And be sure to sign up for The Nordy Club, so you can earn points with every purchase. Another advantage of having a Nordstrom credit card? You earn 3x’s points with every purchase, even during the Anniversary Sale. That’s a huge perk. You even get $ 100 in alterations benefits, which might come in super-handy.
For everyone else, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins on Friday, July 19 at 12:30 p.m. EST and lasts through midnight on Sunday, August 4.
What’s On Sale?
The Anniversary Sale is a real opportunity to stock up your wardrobe with staples and quality basics that will last over multiple years and seasons. We’ve loaded up on fall essentials like chukkas, coats, and jackets; fleshed out our suit with fresh blazers and dress shoes; and scored amazing deals on sweaters and pullovers, boots, and winter coats.
The key is to avoid the trendy items, and keep your focus on classic, versatile staples that will last for many years and seasons to come.

On the cusp of the annual Miami swim market, whose trade shows, runway presentations and activations are scheduled from July 11 to 16, the category appears to be as saturated as a wet swimsuit after a dive into the pool.
Marshal Cohen, chief industry adviser, retail, at The NPD Group, said other than being the victim of its own success as new and existing brands, including mass-market retailers, piled on product, resortwear’s and swim’s robust growth has fallen flat as consumers buy the same quantity but at lower prices. He also noted that both categories’ early adoption of new uses, such as beach to street versatility, has been undermined by ath-leisure. Another culprit is climate change, which is wreaking havoc on traditional weather patterns — the U.S. is coming off its wettest 12 months in history, while summer forecasts for below and above average temperatures could keep more people indoors.
“Swimwear has to get its mojo back and find growth outside the market,” said Cohen, of a sentiment felt across fashion from sportswear to trade shows, both of which have expanded well beyond their niches. “Innovation is paramount, too, so swimwear needs a wide-open throttle rather than waiting around for replenishment to

Super-stylist Karla Welch is bringing her Hollywood magic to the masses once again, this time at Express.
The celebrity wardrobe architect for Tracee Ellis Ross, Busy Phillips, Elisabeth Moss, Cleo Wade, Justin Bieber and more is teaming with the retailer on a 20-piece capsule collection of everyday summer basics with a twist in neutral hues, including oversize linen boyfriend blazers (“shoulder pads are back” she says); mechanic’s jumpsuits; tie-dye cropped Ts; men’s wear-inspired shirts; clear sequin-coated boxing shorts; off-shoulder eyelet lace shifts, and high-waist Latex miniskirts. Launching July 17 in sizes 00 to 18, the Express x Karla collection is priced $ 19.90 to $ 128, and will be sold at select stores and online.
“I actually hate summer dressing, that’s how I went into this. But this is who I am and what I want to wear. I wanted to keep it really limited and small and just what you need,” said Welch, an L.A. fashion fixture known as much for her tomboyish personal style and democratic-leaning political Instagram posts as for her red-carpet finesse.

Allbirds already makes what most consider to be the world’s most comfortable shoes. Where does the trailblazing brand go from here? Today, Allbirds breaks the mold again by releasing its first-ever patterned shoes. This limited edition collection of Houndstooth, ZigZag, and Polkadot Tree Toppers won’t be in stores until July 16, but we scored an exclusive early link, so you can get yours right now by clicking here.
These. Are. Awesome.
If you’re thinking these high tops won’t be wearable until fall, think again. Allbirds Pattern Collection Tree Toppers are made using a proprietary mesh knit textile from sustainably harvested eucalyptus tree pulp. So they’re breathable and silky-smooth, even in the summer heat. Naturally-derived and renewable, it’s much friendlier to the environment than traditional shoe material.
Even the laces are environmentally sound. They’re made of 100 percent post-consumer recycled polyester; basically, one old plastic bottle becomes one pair of durable, sleek shoelaces. The design weave takes its cue from nautical rope, and the bio-based material that forms the eyelets is tougher and more resilient than plastic.
Wanna go sockless? No problem. The plush insoles are lined with merino wool fabric for natural softness. And wool has legendary moisture-wicking and odor reduction. The cushioned footbed is derived from castor bean oil, which also cuts carbon output when compared to petroleum-based foam.
Born from Brazilian sugarcane, SweetFoam is the world’s first carbon negative green EVA. The outsole’s contours provide bouncy comfort that’s light on your feet as well as the planet.
Best of all, Allbirds shoes are completely machine washable—and the price point on these is no higher than the rest of the Tree Topper line ($ 115).
Where Can You Get Them?
The shoes are currently available via Instagram, and you can head there to learn more. For now, the three limited-edition Allbirds Patterned Collection is available only in the high-top Tree Topper style, and just in a black/grey colorway. But if they’re a hit, who knows what the future holds? Take a look at each of the three Patterned Tree Toppers below, and pick yours up today before they’re all gone.

Joel Kinnaman, the star of Hanna,The Informer, and Altered Carbon, covers our July/August issue, sporting a textured, side-swept hairstyle. It’s a cut to consider snagging for yourself, since it wears well in both professional and casual settings.
If you’re curious how it might look on you, consider the advice of Alexia Saras, regional barber manager at Fellow Barber in New York City. Here, she explains whom the style suits best, how to style and maintain it, and what to tell your barber.
How to Get Joel Kinnaman’s Hairstyle: The Kind of Hair You Need
You need to start with some length, at least up top. It’ll be harder for your barber to achieve this style if you’re working with a previously disconnected haircut, Saras notes. You’ll need something that’s easily blended from top to sides.
Because of the forward fringe that sweeps across the brow, Kinnaman’s cut works really well on guys with receding temples. It also softens the widow’s peak that forms in the middle of the recession. Just be sure to ask the barber to leave more density in the front, says Saras, so that you can sweep it down and over the recession. Get your barber’s honest opinion on your density, though. If it’s too thinned out, Salas says you’ll just look like you have a really bad comb-over.
You’ll need relatively textured hair for the style, something that has a natural wave to it without being too curly. “If you have very straight hair, it’ll stick out from the crown and parietal ridge (upper sides) and run the risk of poofing,” Saras says.
It works on thin and thick hair, and Saras says that the style reduces bulk, which is an added benefit for guys with thicker hair: “It allows you to take the sides very short, which prevents them from growing in and looking like a clown wig,” she adds.
What to Tell Your Barber
Your barber should be adept enough to know if this look suits you, as well as how to pull it off. But here are some points you can make.
“This haircut is a blend of a ‘French crop’ with longer fringe and a longer version of a crew cut on the sides,” Saras says.
On top, you want a lot of texture, so your barber should cut the sides with scissors to roughly one inch in length—or a #6 guard (though this entire look really should be styled with scissors).
“The top should be trimmed from a short two inches in the back to a long three inches in the front, done with scissors,” says Saras. “The sides are trimmed and connected to the top while breaking the corners to follow the roundness of the head.”
As for the sideburns and neck, leave them naturally faded, but not tapered.
Saras suggests a full haircut every three to four weeks, and to clean up the neck and sideburns every two weeks so that it stays natural-looking.
How to Style It
Use a nickel- or quarter-sized amount of lightweight styling cream, Saras advises. (Conveniently, Fellow Barber sells its own Styling Cream, which Saras uses on her clients with similar cuts. Product application is important here, too. After distributing the cream evenly in your palms, apply starting from the rear and sides of the head, moving forward, while targeting the roots. You can then massage the hair back from the front, and forward from the back after that, until it’s evenly applied.
Set your blow dryer on low, and point it down over the fringe, instead of under and upward. You can use the diffuser extension on the dryer, too, to better lock in the product and retain some of the moisture in the hair. “This helps keep the style looking great all day long,” Saras says.
You can go over the top of it with a light dusting of texturizing paste or clay (like Firsthand), or a zap of texturizing hair spray (like Ouai’s); it’ll ensure that your hair looks dense and defined.

Haute couture is fashion’s most grand subgenre — the most extravagant, demonstrative, luxurious, sky’s-the-limit world in which all is possible. It’s also fashion’s most intimate arena, every dress built, every flower crafted, every embroidery executed first for the runway, and then for one individual client, by highly skilled artisans who take deep pride in and feel personal ownership of their work. That juxtaposition at the heart of couture felt in particularly high relief this season as, for whatever reasons, designers chose to manifest the intimacy in quite specific ways. It made for a strong and often poignant season.
There was no question that this fall season would feel different — the first one since forever without Karl Lagerfeld at the helm at Chanel. For as long as almost everyone in the audience has been attending couture, Lagerfeld’s Chanel was an essential anchor. For some of us, his show followed a revered ritual, the “Chanel preview,” during which Lagerfeld would multitask brilliantly, hosting and gossiping, offering iPad peeks at his set and deflecting collection-specific queries to Amanda Harlech while simultaneously conducting fittings, signing off on the final touches of each look — hat or no hat, the length of a glove, the

GETTING DIGITAL: “Luglio col bene che ti voglio,” which in English translates to “July, the love I feel for you,” is not only a popular song from the late Sixties, but also the name of the first see-now-buy-now capsule collection that will go live on July 12, marking the official debut of The Attico’s new web site.
Founded in 2016 by Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio, the women’s wear label is going to offer a full digital immersion into the brand with a web site that combines an online store with a content section peppered by collaborations with up-and-coming talents from different fields, ranging from art, cinema and photography to food and design.
In addition, the e-commerce site — operated by Milan-based company The Level Group, which manages the online shops of a range of brands including Dolce & Gabbana, Stuart Weitzman and Woolrich — won’t only carry the label’s ready-to-wear and accessories collections. It will actually sell limited-edition capsule dedicated to a specific theme. Along with pieces designed by Tordini and Ambrosio, the capsule will include items developed by other brands.

LONDON — The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have kept the British public — and royal watchers around the world — guessing about the names of their second son’s godparents. Defying royal tradition, the couple refused to name the godparents of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, who was christened Saturday morning at Queen Elizabeth II’s private chapel at Windsor Castle in an under-the-radar ceremony.
Later in the day, the Sussexes released two pictures, a black-and-white image of themselves holding Archie, and an official color portrait with immediate family, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and Doria Ragland, Meghan Markle’s mother. The images were photographed by Chris Allerton.
The Duchess of Sussex wore a cream Dior Couture dress with matching hat and Cartier earrings, while the Duchess of Cambridge was in a coral Stella McCartney dress with a pussy bow and pleats at the front.

Since 1973, Randolph USA has made high-quality sunglasses just outside of Boston, Massachusetts with top-grade, responsibly sourced materials. 50 different artisans cut, mold, stamp, twist, solder, plate, and polish each pair of Randolph frames in a 200-step process (predominantly by hand) that takes more than six weeks for each pair. Randolph is so confident in its frame joints that each and every pair is protected by a limited lifetime warranty.
Each pair of Randolph sunglasses meet specifications precise enough to meet the demands of the world’s toughest critics, including the US Department of Defense, pilots, naval aviators, astronauts, and even Hollywood stars. You’ve probably seen them on guys like Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. Randolphs are also found in Netflix and Amazon Prime shows, worn by stars like John Krasinski, and made it to the big screen in the Captain Marvel movie.
Randolph makes more than a dozen styles of metal frames. Mix that with a myriad of lens colors, styles, and materials and there are literally hundreds from which to choose. Randolph USA even offers six distinct types of blue lenses. So you can get the season’s hottest color and still be a complete original.
Get The Blues in 6 Hues
Randolph USA offer several extraordinary shades of blue that go with any frame. The company’s most popular blues are the Atlantic Blue, an electric royal blue, and the new Polarized Cobalt, a greener ocean blue hue. Both offer full-mirrored reflection.
Engineered to meet the exacting standards of military pilots, Randolph lenses are designed to reduce eye-strain and improve visual acuity. They have built-in hydrophobic, anti-static, and scratch-resistant properties.

They protect from blue light. Plus, they block 100 percent of damaging UVA and UVB rays, as well as infrared light. Finally, they’re drop-ball tested for impact resistance with a 5/8 inch steel ball from 50 inches!
SkyForceTM lenses are lighter, combining lightweight comfort with outstanding optics in an advanced lens material that is 40 percent lighter than SkyTecTM glass. Randolph also offers a line of SkyForce AirTM gradient lenses that are darker on top and lighter on the bottom for a unique visual experience.

LONDON — For the summer months, Harvey Nichols is inviting customers to experience fragrance in a 360-degree immersive environment, with an exhibition called “Something in the Air.” The exhibition will run until Aug. 27 and feature fragrances from Memo Paris, Experimental Perfume Club, Serge Lutens and Widian.
“In the summer we have a lot of international customers coming into the store, so this is a really good opportunity to show the range of fragrances that we have,” said Deb Bee, creative and marketing director of Harvey Nichols.
Situated on the fifth floor, the installation created by Architecture Social Club invites visitors into a dark room with changing light and scented rings of smoke.
A different fragrance will be emitted every two weeks. Memo Paris will be taking over the opening two weeks with a set of fragrances exclusive to Harvey Nichols, including London Tweed, Siberian Golden Wood and Rose Paris Rose.
Each brand will also take over the space outside the installation. Memo Paris has hung floral arrangements on the walls and snaked vines around perfume bottles, which are displayed on white shelving units.

ROME — “I feel so proud of being human — I also feel little, but proud to see the human touch survive through centuries and buildings still standing after so many years,” Silvia Venturini Fendi mused ahead of the Fendi couture show in Rome on Thursday evening.
Referring to the impressive venue — the Temple of Venus and Rome overlooking the Colosseum and “dominating the city” — the designer felt an additional dose of “power” that would help her “close a circle” at a sensitive moment in her personal life and career, after working so closely with Karl Lagerfeld. Venturini Fendi underscored that the show venue had been decided upon with Lagerfeld and that he had presented her with a book on the Vienna Secession art movement, which influenced the collection, as did his 54 years designing fur and ready-to-wear for the brand. The Italian capital, its mosaics and marble works also strongly informed the collection, dubbed “The Dawn of Romanity.”
“I wanted to go back to the roots so linked to Karl: You become the company after 54 years, so this collection is dedicated to Karl but it’s also something new,” said Venturini Fendi, who also turned to nature as an

NEW DUTIES: Saint Laurent chief executive officer Francesca Bellettini has been elected president of the Chambre Syndicale de la Mode Féminine, the governing body of women’s fashion in France.
Bellettini succeeds Bruno Pavlovsky, president of fashion at Chanel and president of Chanel SAS. Pavlovsky and Chloé ceo Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye were voted in as vice presidents at a meeting of the Chambre Syndicale’s general assembly on June 20.
The meeting approved as new members the following houses: Aalto, Atlein, Jacquemus, Koché, Lacoste, Patou, Victoria/Tomas and Y/Project.
It also renewed its board, consisting of Bellettini; Pavlovsky; de la Bourdonnaye; Sidney Toledano, chairman and ceo of LVMH Fashion Group; Pietro Beccari, ceo of Dior; Guillaume de Seynes, managing director of Hermès International; Issey Miyake, founder of Issey Miyake; Séverine Merle, ceo of Celine; Sophie Duruflé, ceo of Isabel Marant; William Halimi, ceo of Barbara Bui; Vincent Vantomme, business development director at Dries Van Noten, and Daniel Tribouillard, founding president of Léonard Paris.

Scott Eastwood is stepping into some new territory. After starring in big films like Pacific Rim: Uprising and The Fate of the Furious over the last couple years, the actor is launching a new style collection, Made Here, which will have products that are inspired by the American worker.
So what exactly is Made Here about? While you’ll have to wait to see, the upcoming new line will include shirts, boxers, socks, hats and other accessories for both men and women. The idea behind the brand is that everything will be made in the United States and also will “celebrate the American worker” through its designs. Eastwood has partnered with entrepreneur Dane Chapin for the new collection.
“For hundreds of years, ‘American-made’ has been synonymous with high quality,” said Eastwood in a press release. “It’s all the hard-working folks across the country that make our brand possible. I want to honor the iconic heritage of American manufacturing and let people know it’s very much alive and well. The essence of Made Here is really very simple: it’s to celebrate the excellence of the American worker.”
While Eastwood has been hard at work on launching Made Here, he hasn’t slowed down in his acting career. Eastwood has multiple projects coming up, including the Afghanistan war drama The Outpost with Orlando Bloom, and the crime thriller The Manuscript, where he’ll star alongside Oscar winner Jamie Foxx for director Nick Cassavettes.
While you wait for the Made Here launch, you can read up on Eastwood’s previous cover story, where he told us about the time he took a road trip through the Skeleton Coast in Namibia, the time he almost crashed in a helicopter on a snowboarding trip in the Canadian Rockies, and the time he was held down by a massive wave in Australia. Yeah, Eastwood knows how to have an adventure.
The collection is set to launch in August 2019 and customers can get a head start by signing up on the Made Here website to get 10-percent off on launch day. See more at the Made Here site.

The casualization of fashion and an obsession with street wear, wellness, and wearable fashion tech are everywhere, mirroring our fast-paced, tech-obsessed lives. Sneakers have become a powerful engine of growth for luxury houses, sales of high heels are shrinking and hardly anyone wears a necktie anymore.
So why is it that the V&A has had to extend its Dior exhibition for a further seven weeks, until September? Why do the Paris couture shows remain the most awaited of the fashion season? In January, Balmain returned to the couture calendar after a 16-year hiatus, while Hedi Slimane plans to expand the category as part of many new initiatives as creative director at Celine.
Younger labels — including Mary Katrantzou, Richard Quinn and Marine Serre — are all exploring demi-couture while British designer Ozwald Boateng recently unveiled his first collection of tailored clothing for women in Harlem in Manhattan.
Why? I believe the reason is that deep down, we still want to dream. We are entranced by beauty and craftsmanship and yearn to retain some of those values. To some, the world of couture may seem detached, irrelevant, archaic even, but it still exerts a powerful pull, and also sends a strong message about longevity,
Talk about unintended consequences. The sunscreen saving us from becoming lobsters often contains chemicals that wash off into the ocean and threaten corals. Do your part. Use reef-safe sunscreens that are ocean-friendly.
These omit harmful ingredients and use non-nanosize zinc, making the sun-protecting mineral less able to be absorbed by corals.
Here are six reef-safe lotions, sprays, lip balms, and sticks that pass muster. Protect Mother Earth using this trove of ocean-friendly SPF all summer long. And don’t worry: Just because they’re gentle on the ocean doesn’t mean they’re any less effective at safeguarding your skin.

HONOR ROLL: “I can’t believe it!” Maria Grazia Chiuri exclaimed in Italian as she bounded up to her former boss, Valentino Garavani, at the Dior headquarters in Paris on Monday night.
The veteran designer was one of several hundred people gathered at 30 Avenue Montaigne to watch Chiuri receive the Legion of Honor, France’s highest civilian distinction, from France’s gender equality minister Marlène Schiappa.
About to close for renovations, the building had been decked out in an immersive installation by feminist artist Penny Slinger for Chiuri’s haute couture show earlier in the day, giving the proceedings a surrealist twist.
Flanked by her husband Paolo, son Nicolo and daughter Rachele, Chiuri was swarmed by well-wishers, including fellow designer Alber Elbaz; photographer Ellen Von Unwerth; Pathé Ouédraogo, the Burkina Faso-born designer better known as Pathé’O, with whom she worked on her recent resort collection, and author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who inspired her “We Should All Be Feminists” T-shirt.
LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the luxury conglomerate which owns the Dior label, was out in force. Antoine Arnault, head of communication and image, was joined by his partner, model Natalia Vodianova; his sister Delphine Arnault, executive vice president of Louis Vuitton; Sidney Toledano, chairman and chief executive

Paris is on fire — and that’s not just temperature-wise. From new shops, restaurants, spas and art exhibitions, the city is a hotbed of newness. Here’s a selection of where to go during this summer’s couture season.
NEW LEGACY: The Hôtel Barrière Fouquet’s Paris has a new retail space, called Legacy. Set up by Bow Group and Sébastien Chapelle, who formerly headed the watches and high-tech offer at Colette, the space sells high-tech grooming tools from Dyson and Braun; exclusive watch models from labels such as Corum and Casio G-Shock; jewelry, and books by Rizzoli and Taschen. Interior decorator Jacques Garcia designed the plush space, which is tucked next to the Marta bar, with red moiré curtains and a purple carpet. — Mimosa Spencer

Open Monday to Sunday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
HITTING THE TOWN: An eighth-floor rooftop bar, an arty terrace and a former train station transformed into a colorful restaurant: This couture season, Paris is teeming with exciting new spots to let off steam in between shows.
After a bit of shopping at Parisian department store Galeries Lafayette, head to the eighth floor of the building to take in the spectacular panoramic view of the Opéra Garnier and the
Unless your summer home is in Verkhoyansk, it’s probably time to lighten up your bed sheets. Skip the sateens, though. You’re looking for linen and breezy, organic cotton. Linen has an open weave, so it’s extremely breathable. Organic cotton feels crisp and cool even when it’s hot out. Plus, the more you wash either one, the softer they get. Here are the ones we like.

PARIS — A Paris commercial court weighing bids for beleaguered fashion house Sonia Rykiel will issue its ruling on July 25, WWD has learned.
On July 1, the court will hold a closed-door hearing with various parties including the company’s works council, administrators, bidders and executives of the label, according to sources with knowledge of the matter. The famed striped knitwear label has been in receivership since April.
Two proposals have emerged as likely front-runners, with finances and a strategy aimed at keeping the label in operation, retaining some of the company’s 130 employees, these people said. One of them has a designer lined up to become creative director.
Former Balmain chief executive officer Emmanuel Diemoz is leading one of these bids, while the other involves a wealthy French family with industrial holdings in other sectors, but no experience in the fashion business, according to the sources. Diemoz did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The executive is credited for playing a key part in the revival of Balmain, building brand heat with a younger audience through showy designs from Olivier Rousteing and a strong social media presence.
The family bidders have enlisted help from an industry expert, and a younger family
When you find a cologne you love, you want to wear it wherever you go: to the grocery store, while you run errands, to the office—basically every time you step outside of your house. But there are more than a few men’s fragrances that are super heady, and have woody, floral or earthy scents that can be way too overpowering for your colleagues at work.
So if you’ve noticed that your coworkers have been keeping their distance ever since you started dousing yourself in a new scent, or if you’ve seen a subtweet or two that could be about you, that’s their (not-so-subtle) way of telling you that you may need to make a change. And while it may be a pain to give your newfound fragrance a break, think of it this way: you spend more time with the people who share your office than you do with anyone else, and it quite literally pays to keep them happy.
Scroll through the following pages to find a handful of options that will not only satisfy your tastes, but also make your presence a little less known around the office—in the very best way possible.

Hollywood stylist Anita Patrickson has aligned with Singita luxury lodges to bring her made-to-order Amanu sandals to resorts in South Africa. It’s the first move into the hospitality sector for the brand, and a full circle moment for Patrickson, who originally hails from Capetown.
She parlayed her work as a fashion stylist for Julianne Hough, Portia de Rossi and others into a custom shoe business that launched last year in L.A., inspired both by traditional sandals made using tire rubber in Africa, and the tradition of resort sandal making on the island of Capri.
Now she’s bringing the eco-conscious, high-touch experience customers get in her West Hollywood flagship to guests at Singita. In June, Patrickson traveled to South Africa with one of the U.S. makers to train the staff at Singita Ebony Lodge and Lemombo Lodge to cobble the shoes, priced $ 160 to $ 275, from an array of leathers, with pony hair and feather trim, in under an hour.
“My parents were both born in Kenya, and I thought this was a cool way to be able to take this craft back and teach somebody a skillset—and a way to be able to go home more,” Patrickson laughed, adding of her brand
Summer is the time when dressed-down, casual looks become stylish. Chinos, short sleeves, and linen are back, and it’s acceptable to finish off the look with your favorite open-toed shoes. Using sandals and flip flops can give your summer outfits a laid-back feel, plus they can be comfortable and stylish too.
“A lot of guys are self-conscious about sandals, but if you like them, you should wear them — guys need to have a look that they like,” menswear icon Sid Mashburn says. “Function is more important than fashion, and sandals are just good summer shoes. But it can be surprising how cool they are, how chic they are, and how elegant they are. They hit all the buttons.”
Here are some of the best sandals and flip-flops for summer, whether you’re going out for a day on the lake or a night out on the town.

MOVES LIKE JAGGER: Mick Jagger has been a fashion icon for more than 50 years — and the musician proved he’s still a trendsetter in Chicago when The Rolling Stones kicked off their “No Filter” North American tour with two shows at Soldier Field. The second show was Tuesday.
Over a two-hour set that spanned hits like “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Paint It Black,” “Gimme Shelter” and “Satisfaction,” the 75-year-old Stones frontman strutted, sprinted and grooved all over the stage — remarkable, considering he underwent heart surgery in April and was forced to postpone the tour.
Changing outfits numerous times as the band moved through the songs, Jagger opened the tour wearing a sharply tailored black-and-white diamond intarsia leather bomber jacket with a silk lining — one of his many pieces created for the tour by London-based designer Jane Hayward.
“Mick is always keen to evolve his look for every tour and is closely involved,” said Hayward, who has been designing Jagger’s tour clothes since 2014. “For this part of the ‘No Filter’ tour, leather biker and speedway jackets were referenced and reworked in bold colors and graphics with sportswear details. This was an evolution from the sharp colorblocking from the previous [European] tour.”

TAKE TWO: Gherardo Felloni is addressing the generation gap — and incidentally sending out the message that style has no age barrier — with a short film to present his fall 2019 collection for Roger Vivier.
He tapped a Hollywood heavyweight, Susan Sarandon, as well as rising star AnnaSophia Robb, to star in a short film set to go live on the brand’s social channels today. It also stars Instagram sensation Tuna the Dog, who has 2 million followers — almost as many as Sarandon and Robb combined.
Inspired by Italian director Antonio Pietrangeli’s cult 1965 movie “Lo la conoscevo bene” (“I Knew Her Well” in English), the film tells the story of an aspiring actress — played by Robb — who moves to the city to learn her trade and take lessons in style under shoe-obsessed drama teacher Sarandon.
“The relationship between different generations [is] something I’ve always been interested in,” Felloni said. “I wanted to address the theme in this short film for Roger Vivier.”
He continued, “I think it’s important to show who is the Roger Vivier woman. Susan Sarandon and AnnaSophia Robb perfectly exemplify my vision of Vivier women.…I chose them because I wanted to show a playful exchange between
Zappos is renowned for having an awesome selection of boots and dress shoes, but its wide variety of sneakers and summer kicks don’t get nearly as much love. And that’s a shame. Zappos is a fantastic destination to get all your summer gear, from shirts and shorts to sandals and flip-flops. And it’s almost always cheaper than retail. So if you can find gear on sale at Zappos? That means it’s WAY less than you’d pay at the shoe store.
And these aren’t knock-offs like you find at some of the big box stores. Zappos doesn’t rip brands off, or steal their designs. Zappos gets great deals on overstock from manufacturers and retailers, then spins that savings back around to you. So you can get the same great products you saw in the store just a couple of months prior for a fraction of the price.
Does Zappos Sell More Than Shoes?
What started as an online shoe reseller has turned into a retail empire. Zappos now sells clothing, bags, accessories, and much more. The company has been instrumental in the rebirth of downtown Las Vegas, Nevada, and is widely recognized as an awesome place to work. It puts a premium on company culture, too. So you know when you buy from Zappos you’re buying from a responsible retailer that takes care of its customers and employees—not some fly-by-night operation that might be gone next week or doesn’t answer the phone or email if you have an issue.
So get your feet into something sweet this summer, and pick up one of these awesome summer shoes from Zappos. Most of these selections have multiple colors, styles, and sizes available, so there’s something for everyone.
Whether you spend your summer weekends sipping Negronis in the Hamptons or jumping off cliffs at Copper Canyon, get over to Zappos and get some sensible summer shoes today.

MILAN — Quality, yes. Innovation, sure. Sustainability, of course.
The recipe served by Italian textile houses is a tested one: often passed by parents to children and perfected through the years, it guarantees a certain outcome every time. But is it enough to feed their businesses?
The domestic political difficulties, uncertainties linked to Brexit and the commercial tensions between the U.S. and China, as well as the increasing costs of raw materials — especially wool and cotton — are among the elements adding bitterness to spinners’ tested formula.
According to projections released by industry association Sistema Moda Italia earlier this year, revenues for the fashion and textile sector are expected to gain only 1.5 percent in the first half of 2019 compared with the same period in the previous year. In particular, the textile area is forecast to grow only 1.1 percent.
In the January-June 2019 period, exports are listed to be the industry’s driving force but apparently growing at a slower pace, gaining 1.8 percent compared with the 2.6 percent increase registered in the same period in 2018.
It’s no surprise then that exhibitors at Florence-based Pitti Filati textile trade show, opening today and running through June 28, will be sporting a cautious approach.
Most men are plagued by the same insecurity: hair loss. Some panic over thinning hair. Most fear a receding hair line. And pretty much all dread bald spots or just plain going bald. That’s where supplements come in.
You don’t even have to have male-pattern baldness to benefit from supplements. If you have a full mane, but notice hairs break easily, or are too dainty to build any volume or hold a style, there are drug-free remedies that thicken hair and prevent further fall.
Just like there are herbal remedies to help you sleep and build body mass, there are solutions to thin or thinning hair. Here are some of the best supplements you can buy right now if you want healthier, stronger, fuller hair.

Individual stories; universal experiences.
Sometimes the former coalesces into the latter for people who live their lives, or part of their lives, within various communities and subcultures. As Pride Month continues toward the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, a great deal of celebratory fervor has focused on the phenomenal strides made by the LGBTQ community, its denizens for so long shunned from essential elements of mainstream culture. As recently as the 2008 presidential primaries, both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton claimed to be against same-sex marriage. (They made public reversals in 2012 and 2013, respectively.) Today, same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states, after the landmark 2015 Supreme Court ruling. The rapid-fire changes, Stan Herman says, “are seismic.”
Stan is one of a quartet of designers who gathered last week for a cross-generational roundtable on Pride and LGBTQ issues. Now in his “90th year,” and six — or is it seven? — decades into his career, Stan is as engaged as ever as a designer. He’s a walking, talking, tennis-playing history of the modern American fashion industry, including its longtime safe-haven allure for gay male creatives and the devastation wrought by the AIDS crisis beginning in the early eighties.
When you think of Merino wool, you probably imagine a drawer full of warm winter clothing, or maybe a pair of comfy hiking socks. You likely don’t think about summer wear, especially not a pair of swim trunks. But Outerknown, the outdoor apparel brand founded by pro surfer Kelly Slater, is changing the way we think about wool with the new Woolaroo trunks, released earlier this month.
We got our hands on a pair while touring Kelly Slater’s Surf Ranch, and we’re here to tell you it’s time to leave the itchy stereotypes about wool behind. These 100 percent Merino wool trunks feel great, are super tough, and they’re eco-friendly, too. If you’re in the market for a pair of hard-working trunks that can stand up to a summer’s worth of surfing, swimming, and paddling, the it’s worth considering the Woolaroo.
What It Is:
The Woolaroo is a new swim trunk from Outerknown, and the company claims it’s the first-ever trunk made completely from Australian Merino wool (the fiber is sourced in collaboration with The Woolmark Company). It’s a nod to the swim trunks from the early days of surfing, which were made from a heavy-duty twill fabric, but it’s also a clear expression of the brand’s commitment to sustainability. Merino wool is an all-natural, renewable, and biodegradable fiber, unlike the synthetic fabrics used in many other swim trunks.
Finding swim trunks that are comfortable, stylish, and fit well is no easy task, but the Woolaroo gets high marks in all three categories. The pre-stretched wool fabric is light but tough, and the natural benefits of the fiber really shine. It’s breathable and odor-resistant without any synthetic finishes or additives, and wool’s moisture-wicking properties are also evident: Even when soaking wet, water beads up and rolls off the shorts easily. The Woolaroo strikes a good balance between utility and style as well. They hit just above the knee and look trim enough to wear off the beach, but there’s enough give through the thigh that they won’t interfere with swimming, and the zipper fly and drawstring provide a secure fit—you won’t have to worry about these slipping off in heavy surf. Of course, it’s also a definite plus to wear swim trunks that won’t contribute to the plastic that’s choking our oceans.
The Merino fabric of the Woolaroo is a far cry from your scratchy Christmas sweater, but it’s worth noting that these shorts do have a slightly coarse texture compared to synthetic fabrics. As for storage, the Woolaroo comes with a secure zippered back pocket, but on land, some might miss having side pockets to carry keys and other essentials. Watermen who need a light and lean pair of trunks likely won’t mind the lack of pockets, though.

MILAN — “How do you live in an age of bewilderment, when the old stories have collapsed, and no new story has yet emerged to replace them?” This is one of the questions historian and author Yuval Noah Harari asks in his 2018 book “21 Lessons for the 21st Century” and which sparks a conversation on how technology is shaping and changing our society. It is not surprising then that Harari is one of the speakers of the first European Innovation Festival, staged by media brand Fast Company and for the first time hosted by Gucci.
Held between Milan and Florence July 9-11, “The Dawn of Superintelligence” will highlight the potential for collaboration between man and machine. Technological advancement and artificial intelligence bring both opportunities and challenges by combining computer science and human sensibility, and the festival was hailed as key in helping to discuss a topic stirring more questions than providing answers, said Marco Bizzarri, president and chief executive officer of Gucci, in an interview with WWD.
“The topic is of the moment, the use of data, intelligent machines and how they can change the future. The effect that all this can have on jobs, what does it mean, will machines
A hot shave is one of man’s great pleasures. But who has the time or money to sit for one? Gillette wants to bring the hot shave experience out of the barber chair and straight to your bathroom with the world’s first Heated Razor. It’s available for pre-order now, and set to ship in time for Father’s Day.
Designed in Germany, the innovative and experiential arm of the grooming giant, the high-tech heated razor created a buzz last year when it launched. The GiletteLabs heated razor sold out in 5 days on Indiegogo. Now, it’s ready to be shipped to the public, and we couldn’t be more excited. With Father’s Day coming up fast, the timing couldn’t be better. It’s also a great time to consider signing yourself or the Dad in your life up with Gillette on Demand, to ensure he always has fresh razors at his disposal.
Now guys can get the soothing hot towel experience in the comfort of our own bathrooms. The wireless, five-blade razor heats up in less than a second. There are even adjustable temperature levels for ultimate comfort . And best of all, the razor is built to be completely waterproof, so we can use it in or out of the shower. Finally, a reason to look forward to our morning shave.
Does anyone shave without heat anymore? Most of us rinse our razor under a faucet of hot water before scraping away the lather. Many of us take our razors right into the shower with us, as part of our morning grooming routine. Some shave immediately after our shower. No matter when you prefer to shave, heat is an integral part of the pre-shave routine. Why? It awakens the senses and provides an elevated shaving experience.
Does This Gadget Really Work?
That’s what makes the GilletteLabs Heated Razor so amazing. Anywhere you shave, just a push of a button is all it takes. The thin warming bar sits right below the five blades, so once you dial in the temp to your preferences you can just start shaving. That’s it. No waiting for the faucet water to get hot, no standing with your face under a hot shower, holding your breath. The warming bar touches the skin just before the razor does, instantly prepping both whisker and skin for the shave to come. There are no wires to work around. It’s all powered by a Li-Ion battery that charges on a discreet stand you can put anywhere in your bathroom. There’s even magnetic docking, making charging your razor as easy as just putting it down.
If you’re ready to get the hot shave experience in your own bathroom—or know a dad who would—pre-order the GilletteLabs Heated Razor ($ 200) today. The razor will ship mid-late May (you’ll only be charged once it ships), but it will arrive at its destination in plenty of time for Father’s Day on Sunday, June 16. You can (and should) also enroll Dad in Gillette On Demand’s subscription service, so he gets a set of new Heated Razor blades (regularly $ 25) monthly, or every three or six months. It’s a great deal that keeps you from having to remember to order new blades all the time.
The GilletteLabs Heated Razor makes our morning grooming routine—the act of shaving in particular, of course, but the entire routine as a whole—far more pleasant and enjoyable than it’s ever been.
Buy Now: Be the first to shop the new GilletteLabs Heated Razor! Buy now at Gillette on Demand ($ 200) today. Product will ship in time for Father’s Day. Limited quantities available!
Tommy Hilfiger is popping into Rockaway Beach this weekend.
In a move to focus on a personalized, hyperlocalized approach to shopping for the next-gen consumer, Hilfiger will have a pop-up at the Rockaway Beach Surf Club in Rockaway Beach, N.Y., on Saturday, June 22.
This is part of Hilfiger’s larger retail strategy to plan short-term and long-term pop-up stores that meet the next-gen customers where they are.
The one-day pop-up will operate from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The activation will consist of a temporary beachside stand selling Tommy Hilfiger and Tommy Jeans product that lends itself to tie-dye customization. All items, except pool slides, will be dyeable and available pre-dyed with the option to dye on-site.
The offerings consist of women’s bodysuits retailing for $ 60 and bikini underwear for $ 20; men’s cotton low-rise trunks for $ 28, Ts for $ 30 and $ 40, unisex socks for $ 12, and slides for $ 35.
On-site photographers will take pictures of consumers at the event with Polaroid cameras and instantly deliver the photos to guests in TH branded packaging. Tie-dye designer Abbie De Castro from Smalls Studio will be on-site to create one-of-a-kind product from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Evans has a classic, laid-back style that’s definitely worth emulating.

The pay is good at the top of Ralph Lauren Corp.
Ralph Lauren, who is executive chairman and chief creative officer, saw total compensation of $ 22.2 million last fiscal year, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission late Friday. That marked a modest decline from $ 22.6 million a year earlier.
Lauren’s take included a salary of $ 1.8 million and incentive pay of $ 9.2 million. But the biggest portion of his compensation came in the form of stock awards pegged at $ 11 million, although he might not receive the full value given share-price fluctuations.
The company’s president and chief executive officer, Patrice Louvet, received compensation of $ 13.9 million, including a salary of $ 1.3 million, $ 5.2 million in incentive pay and $ 7.3 million in stock awards.
That actually marked a steep decline for the ceo, who logged pay of $ 23.8 million the year before, his first with the company.
There’s no such thing as a maintenance-free beard. If you’re sporting whiskers, you’ve got to take care of them—otherwise your face might become an itchy, unruly mess. But traveling complicates the grooming equation: How do you give your beard the care it needs without lugging around an extra carry-on full of supplies? For travel photographer Clint Johnston, a trio of grooming products from Wahl is the answer. Compact, easy to use, and effective, the Wahl Beard Oil, Beard Wash, and Beard Softener wet goods bundle makes the perfect travel companion and checks all the boxes for beard care.
“I use my wet goods products daily,” says Johnston in the video above. “I love having a dedicated product to keep my beard healthy, and I can use it on the go.”
The three products in the bundle are specifically formulated to give your beard all the care it needs. The sulfate-free Beard Wash cleans your scruff (and also works as a face cleanser), the Beard Oil moisturizes your whiskers, and the Beard Softener prevents itching and skin irritation while making your beard soft to the touch. With these products, your grooming routine becomes a simple three-step process: Just wash, apply the oil to moisturize, and add in the softener to keep your beard looking and feeling great. For Johnson, that means he can get the look he wants with minimal time and effort.
“It allows me to transition from rugged to refined in a matter of minutes,” he says. “As soon as I get home, I can just clean up and I’m ready to go.”

When Christian Louboutin was growing up in Paris, heels were not allowed at the Palais de la Porte Dorée, an Art Deco gem dedicated to African and Asian arts.
Sweet revenge comes in February 2020, when the museum, whose partial restoration was funded by the luxury shoemaker, will house an exhibition devoted to Louboutin’s creativity and his diverse aesthetic passions.
“It’s an open window to my brain,” was how Louboutin summed up the vast showcase, where more than 200 pairs of shoes will be sprinkled among an eclectic mix of art works, furnishings, installations, performance pieces and some fashion items, including crosses and crowns. “The heel is back in the museum in full force, only it’s not only an exhibition of high heels. We have flat shoes, too.”
The delicate mosaics and parquet floors are what compelled the museum to ban spindly footwear back in the day. And its ornamental splendor is what sparked Louboutin’s passion for decorative arts, which would become a key source of inspiration for the future designer.
In an interview on Thursday, Louboutin recalled being awed by the tall doors sheltering one of the museum’s sumptuous salons, its door handles made of jutting horns that evoked the wonder of Africa.
Whether you’re heading out on a long bike ride or lounging by the pool, no outdoor summer activity is complete without a good pair of shades. And if you’ve been toting around the same frames for years—or your good pair went overboard at the lake last season—now’s the perfect time to upgrade. Brands are rolling out their newest spring and summer sunglasses, so you have plenty of great options to choose from.
Although they fall into the “accessory” category, a good pair of frames is really an essential. They can make or break an outfit, says Courtney Mays, stylist for NBA player Kevin Love.
“Sunglasses are the final touch to complete a look,” she says. “They add that instant cool factor, even if you’re in sweats.”
When picking out a new pair, focus on fit, shape, and style, Mays advises. Look for frames that fit your head well (and stay put when you wear them), and opt for a shape and style that matches your wardrobe and personality. The best way to determine what works is to visit a store and try on frames, she says. Once you find a shape you like, you can experiment with different materials and colors.
Already have a pair of shades in your drawer? Add to your collection by branching out into new styles.
“Go for a color, lens, or metal you wouldn’t normally choose,” Mays says.
We perused recent releases and put together this collection of our favorite new men’s sunglasses. From ultralight, sporty shades to updates on classic frames, there’s something here for every occasion—and every guy.
It’s the most swaggy time of the year … when the top NBA prospects in the game show off their style on the biggest days of their lives … and these guys went all out in the name of FASHION!!! Zion Williamson is rockin’ an all-white suit — just like…
Could San Francisco become a fashion capital?
It’s not a media hub like New York or a manufacturing center like L.A., but it is a hotbed of fashion disruptors following historic blue jeans maker Levi Strauss & Co. and casual Friday pioneer Gap in changing the way people dress and shop.
What sets many of San Francisco’s fashion brands apart is that they are direct-to-consumer, mission-driven and digitally enabled from inception to tackle industry challenges, including sizing and transparency. Many are also led by female chief executive officers or creative directors designing into a polished, functional aesthetic that’s resonating in this new feminist era.
Now that these start-ups are coming of age (and setting $ 1 billion-plus public offerings), they are attracting more talent, including designers, stylists and editorial directors, and a new creative class is starting to emerge in San Francisco.
Everlane has ambitions to be the next Gap, only with a transparent supply chain. ThirdLove, the size-inclusive, female-first lingerie maker, is taking on Victoria’s Secret. Cuyana is selling attainable luxury ready-to-wear and leather goods with the mantra “fewer, better things.” Meanwhile, fashion-tech brands Stitch Fix and online resale giant The RealReal are reshaping the shopping experience.
“We’re not a fashion-forward city, but that’s OK.

Indochino has inked an exclusive, multiyear deal with top NBA draft prospect RJ Barrett.
Barrett, a Toronto native and a forward on the Duke Blue Devils as well as the Canadian Senior Men’s National Team, is expected to be among the top five picks in the NBA Draft on Thursday. He is the son of Rowan Barrett who played professionally in Europe and South America.
Under the terms of the deal with Indochino, Barrett will be featured in the company’s campaigns and the brand will create an exclusive RJ Barrett collection of custom apparel and customizations that will be released to coincide with his expected season debut in the NBA for the 2019-20 season.
He will also wear select looks from Indochino throughout the season and to a number of high-profile events throughout the year. He will kick off the partnership by wearing Indochino to the NBA Draft at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
“The experience of hearing my name called on draft day is one I’ve been working toward my entire life,” said Barrett. “It is the first of many unforgettable moments I hope to have in my NBA career. It’s important to me that my look always reflect the moment and leave
You invest in technologically advanced running shoes, wearables, and fitness gear. So why do you settle with subpar underwear? It might seem like it’s all the same, but there’s a huge difference between a garment designed with performance in mind and one that comes in a 12 pack. (If you’ve made the switch to performance socks, you know the difference.)
We tested the newest briefs on the market to find the ones that stand up to WODs so hard you soak through your clothes as well as freezing outdoor runs, all while preventing chafing and maximizing comfort. If you’re looking for next-level underwear, these five pairs are tough—and comfy—enough for adventures in sweltering heat or bitter cold.

PARIS — There’s something about Paris, what with six packed days of men’s shows starting today, the calendar bulging with 10 more official shows and reflecting a United Nations of diverse fashion talent.
“Paris is the center of the fashion industry. It’s the pinnacle of luxury and a hub of creativity,” enthused Spencer Phipps, a San Francisco native showing at the Cite Internationale des Arts Tuesday. “Starting a business here as an American, it pushes us to innovate and puts the way people view the brand in a different context.”
Hed Mayner, based in Tel Aviv, said he chose Paris as his platform partly because he happened to live in the French capital shortly after his studies in Jerusalem, and found the team that puts together his namesake label. “Besides this, we wanted to get closer to the hub of the fashion world, which will provide us with the opportunity to increase our knowledge, and network with industry leaders and creative minds,” he added.
With men’s weeks in other capitals withering, young designers are attracted to the creative energy in Paris, and the opportunity to capture not only attention, but business, given the concentration of press, influencers and buyers congregating this week. About
Spring is that time of year when you go to grab your white sneakers but realize you wore them to the point where half of your shoe separates every time you take a step, the laces are about to snap, and cleaning them off just won’t do the trick anymore. In short, it’s time to invest in a new pair of kicks.
And if you’re like us, you want a pair of sneakers that look cool enough to wear with your favorite dress shirtand, once it’s Friday at 5 p.m., that vintage tee you scored on the cheap a few years ago.
Sure, there are tons of great white sneakers that fit the bill you can easily buy online right now. But no one really wants to drop money on a pair that doesn’t quite nail that perfect mix of dressy-meets-casual without looking like you’re heading to the gym for a bodyweight workout. Good news: J.Crew launched its new J.Crew x Nike Killshot 2 sneakers this month, and you can finally buy them online (well, if you’re not trying to buy a size 13).
Yes, you’ve seen them before, but the brand revamped one of its best-selling pairs of kicks this time around with what it calls a “sail green” swoosh logo. The suede-and-leather upper serves up some simple style with just the right amount of color, which makes them a little easier to dress up or down—we think they’ll look cool with that new spring suit. And if you’re not completely sold on that green Nike logo, you can still get them in the go-to navy-and-white version for the same price. They’re 90 bucks, but they’re the kind of shoes you’ll want to wear until they completely fall apart—that is, if you can get them before they sell out again.

MILAN — After working with the likes of Nico Vascellari, Reilly Hey and Sue Tilley, and in January with her mentor Karl Lagerfeld, Silvia Venturini Fendi will reveal today the latest Fendi guest designer: Luca Guadagnino. The “Call Me By Your Name” director has designed a special print for Fendi’s men’s spring 2020 collection to be unveiled here Monday in a new location for the brand, the neoclassic 18th-century Royal Villa.
A longtime friend of Venturini Fendi, Guadagnino first worked with the brand on a video for spring 2006. In 2007, they partnered to set up the First Sun production company, which produced the director’s acclaimed 2009 film “I Am Love,” starring Tilda Swinton.
Guadagnino, whose “Call Me By Your Name” received an Oscar nomination for Best Picture and one for Actor in a Leading Role for Timothée Chalamet’s interpretation, in 2012 founded the production company Frenesy Film specifically for taking on projects with major fashion brands, and he has directed or produced short films or commercials for, among others, and in addition to Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Ermenegildo Zegna, Salvatore Ferragamo, Sergio Rossi, Cartier and Pomellato, and, most recently, Valentino.
Fendi chairman and chief executive officer Serge Brunschwig revealed the collaboration during an interview at Fendi’s
When it comes to being a frequent traveler, you don’t always have time to book a time slot with your local barber. But if you’re looking to achieve a badass, stylish cut on your own, you need the right tools to maintain it. For Clint Johnston, a travel photographer who has been to many far-reaching places, the way to do that is with the Wahl Elite Pro Clipper Kit.
As someone who travels more often than not, Johnston doesn’t always have time to go get a shape-up or a haircut at the barber. That’s where the Wahl kit comes in. “It’s essential for my everyday needs,” Johnston says. “It keeps me looking fresh, so if I’m out all day hiking and shooting, I can come home, clean up, and go out at night, no problem.”
The kit comes with a number of different guard attachments, varying in length from short to long, as well as a cleaning brush, scissors, blade oil, and more, so it can take care of almost any hair-styling need you want. After spending time out in the wilderness, all it takes is a few strokes and you can clean up any stray hair or spots to get a fresher look.
“Wahl helps me upgrade my grooming game because it helps me transition from rugged to refined in a matter of minutes,” Johnston says. “As soon as I get home, I can clean up and I’m ready to go.”
“It was incredible to see obviously the pride of the Italian nation and of Mr. Armani, who is the real image of Italy, coming out with the athletes. It was incredibly powerful – I got goosebumps,” admitted Tom Bateman after the Emporio Armani show.
The actor was referring to the finale of the show, which was closed by 20 Olympic athletes and nine Paralympians of the Italian team wearing the new EA7 Emporio Armani uniforms for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, with graphics paying homage to Japan. Previously, Giorgio Armani has dressed the Italian athletes at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, and the Sochi 2014 and Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics. The athletes walked to the tune of “Love is in the Air,” around a stage lit up to reproduce the colors of the Italian flag.
Bateman is keeping busy, shooting the Netflix drama “Behind Her Eyes,” due out later this year, an adaptation of the best-selling book by the same name penned by Sarah Pinborough. Bateman plays the lead character, David. “It circles around a married couple and another woman, but I can’t say too much and give it away–it’s dark, twisted and
A good pair of performance briefs should go unnoticed. That’s the ironic, telltale sign of a stellar piece of apparel: You forget you’re wearing it. Meanwhile, a bad pair will scrunch, chafe, and require some awkward lunging or a not-so-discrete hand down your pants to adjust.
To keep your most sensitive area as dry and comfortable as possible, we’ve tested some of the top options on the market. Here are the best six performance briefs to wear whether you’re training or just going about your everyday life. They’ll withstand stifling heat and swampy humidity without breaking a sweat—even if you do.
Celebrating a life as large as Karl Lagerfeld’s requires monumental ingredients.
So on June 20, the vast nave of the Grand Palais in Paris will be wallpapered with 56 towering portraits of Lagerfeld and decked out with three giant LED screens, vast custom carpets, two Steinway pianos, two large bars and a main stage that will welcome a rotating cast of top film and music stars, all with ties to the late designer, who died Feb. 19 after an unprecedented fashion career.
The tribute, named “Karl For Ever,” has been organized by the houses of Chanel, Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld and conceived by theater and opera director Robert Carsen.
“I wanted to celebrate him in the fullest way possible,” Carsen said in an interview Friday, revealing details of the decor and the 90-minute spectacle, which will intersperse video footage with live performances. The cast will include musician Pharrell Williams, dancer Lil Buck, violinist Charlie Siem, and actresses Tilda Swinton, Helen Mirren, Fanny Ardant and Cara Delevingne.
Carsen corralled 60 people to speak on camera in Lagerfeld’s photo studio tucked behind his 7L bookstore and stacked with his extensive collection of art and literary tomes. This who’s who of Lagerfeld’s life spanning fashion,
We all land on different ends of the spectrum when it comes to skin—few striking that perfect combination. Some suffer from dryness, struggling to keep their whole face or specific patches hydrated and free from flakes. Others err on the side of greasy. If your forehead is prone to extra oil, then you’re conscious of the matter. Your skin can look slick and shiny at the end of the day
It’s not detrimental to your skin health. On the contrary, the added sebum can actually help protect against pollutants and minimize the appearance of wrinkles (essentially natural anti-aging). But the accumulation of grease can be annoying as hell. You have to wipe it constantly throughout the day, and your forehead can reflect light in photographs.
How do you remedy this? There’s no need to cover your brow or go crazy with a harsh grooming protocol (washing your face too often can actually trigger your skin to produce more oil). Tend to your skin with the right products and regimen.
Here are six things to help minimize oil buildup and shine.
1. Use a Toner
Toner should be your first attempt at managing oil production. It works to balance the pH levels of your skin, while removing excess dirt or grime from the pores that your cleanser may have missed. Toner should be applied after cleansing, but before any serum and moisturizer. Avoid any alcohol-based toners and astringents, in favor of something with cooling herbal ingredients. These will neutralize oil without over-drying and irritating the skin. Witch hazel is a much-touted toner, too, and helps balance pH levels effectively, though you should discontinue if you notice any dryness or redness. (It’s not likely, but pay attention.)
Once you’ve applied your moisturizer, you can add a lightweight coat of mattifying primer atop the skin. It comes as a liquid that dissolves into a powder-like substance. (Or, you can simply pat some anti-shine powder* on your forehead, too, like they do on movie sets to help prevent the actors from radiating like traffic lights.) This invisible layer will absorb excess oil throughout the day, preventing the buildup of grime and shine. Most of them also mask the appearance of enlarged pores, giving you a matte, smooth complexion.
Try these: Mënaji Liquid Powder Shine Eliminator [$ 36; menaji.com] and Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder* [$ 12; mariobadescu.com]
Another aggravator of shine is when you coat the skin with excessively dense creams and lotions. This suffocates the pores, and you end up sweating or glistening more than you otherwise would. That’s why you should stick with lighter creams that absorb quickly and don’t add any excess oil to your forehead. Oil-free products will proudly announce themselves to you on their packaging. And it’s not that some oils are bad as a skincare ingredient. They make excellent moisturizers for dry and “normal” types of skin, but are a bit excessive when you’re already prone to excessive oil. Try this: Boscia Green Tea Oil-Free Moisturizer [$ 38; boscia.com]
4. Consider Mattifying, Tinted Moisturizers
Another option for your moisturizer is a tinted, mattified option. Not only will this work to even out any inconsistencies in your complexion (by neutralizing redness, lightness, or dark spots), they also often come with SPF. The same drill applies as above, however, look for lightweight, oil-free options that won’t aggravate your sebum production or block your pores. While you’re browsing for tinted moisturizers, note that you might see them listed as “BB Creams”—a.k.a. “blemish balms”—so be sure to browse those options, too. Try this: La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Cream for Oily Skin, SPF 20 [$ 29.99; laroche-posay.us]
5. Keep Blotting Papers in Your Bag or Backpack
Remember how some people used to pat their greasy pizza with a napkin? While their gesture was pointless, it did make the pizza appear less greasy. And that’s what blotting papers do for your forehead. Only they aren’t napkins: These tote-able papers soak up the oil and instantly remedy the situation, leaving no product or residue behind.
Try this: Sephora Mattifying Blotting Films [$ 8; sephora.com]
There are two ways to combat oily skin via cleansing: Logic would tell you to use a cleanser for oily skin, something with salicylic acid to help keep your pores clear. And that’s the truth. However, while that’s a good solution for people with oily skin, it doesn’t mean that they should cleanse with that heavier-duty product multiple times a day. (Just once will suffice.)
If you want to wash your face an extra time or two midday—like after a workout, or just because you’re just getting glossy—then swap in something a little gentler, sans oil, to compensate for the fact you’re washing more than most people.
PARIS — Kenzo is parting ways with creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, WWD has learned.
After eight years at the helm, the design duo will present their final collection for the brand on June 23 during Paris Men’s Fashion Week. They will officially depart the label on July 1 to focus on their U.S.-based Opening Ceremony store chain and fashion label, with their successor to be named at a later date.
During their tenure Leon and Lim repositioned Kenzo as a contemporary label, revived key archival signatures like the embroidered tiger, and launched collaborations with everyone from Vans to fast-fashion retailer H&M.
Their fashion shows became known for performances including live bands, traditional Japanese theater and dance troupes. Meanwhile, the designers commissioned photographers and filmmakers including Jean-Paul Goude, David LaChapelle, Gregg Araki and Sean Baker to work on their campaign shoots and films.
Sylvie Colin, chief executive officer of Kenzo since 2017, paid tribute to the pair for modernizing the brand, which is preparing to celebrate its 50th anniversary next year, while building a close relationship with its 80-year-old founder Kenzo Takada.
“Humberto and Carol consistently brought diversity and inclusion to the forefront at Kenzo, using their collections, fashion shows, advertising, and special projects to
One of the pioneers of breathable, cooling golf shirts, Callaway brought the hex pattern into the game years ago. The hex allowed Callaway’s golf shirts to breathe and dry quickly. It wasn’t long until golfers on courses around the world soon raved about Callaway’s fantastic golf shirts.
Today, Callaway is one of the most recognized brands on the course. It’s worn by dozens of pros and legions of duffers worldwide. And the reason is simple: Because it works. Comfortable as well as stylish, Callaway Apparel looks as good off the course as it works on it.
But Callaway Apparel didn’t stop when it was ahead. The company is utilizing modern technology and contemporary fabrics to craft golf wear that stretches, breathes, and dries like no other. And this time of year, those qualities are essential on the course.
Stay Focused on the Game
A sweat-soaked shirt is not just unsightly and embarrassing, it’s uncomfortable. And when you’re not comfortable, you get distracted. If you’re distracted, you don’t play well. It’s as simple as that. Golf is a game of millimeters, not just inches, and the slightest distraction can ruin a shot. One bad shot can ruin the whole round. And a bad round of golf makes for a bad day all around.
So head over to callawayapparel.com today, and check out their big sale on cooling apparel. It’s moisture-wicking and heat transferring, keeping the wearer comfortable and dry and keeping his mind on the game. And it’s good-looking enough to take anyone far beyond the course.
The selection is vast, and much of it is on sale. A bunch of it is made just for Big & Tall guys, with sizes up to 5X. There’s also a great Clearance section, where you can score awesome deals on blowout items. And every order over $ 99 gets free shipping.
Here are few pieces of Callaway cooling apparel we wouldn’t mind swinging in this summer.

MILAN — Venice-based luxury footwear label René Caovilla has partnered with Chopard on a sandal style to be auctioned during Natalia Vodianova’s Naked Heart Foundation, hosted in Geneva on Thursday.
The design is a fuchsia silk satin sandal embellished with a front brooch and an ankle bracelet. The latter, which features oval-shaped pink sapphires and white moonstones for a total of 104 carats, can be unfastened to be worn as jewelry on the wrist. A ring adorning the heel completes the precious footwear style, which will be worn by Swedish model Elsa Hosk during the event.
The René Caovilla for Chopard sandal style.
As reported, René Caovilla tapped Hosk as its face until 2020. The model appears in the brand’s latest campaign, which was styled by Elizabeth Sulcer and lensed by New York-based Norwegian photographer Hanna Tveite.
Proceeds of the auction of the footwear design will entirely go to the Naked Heart Foundation to support the families of disabled children.
Salt may be nature’s exfoliant, but sodium chloride-infused grooming products can do more than slough away skin.
Sprays can give texture to thin strands, boosting your hair’s natural volume and helping you pull off certain hairstyles you might not otherwise be able to achieve.
It may seem counterintuitive, but lotions containing the mineral can actually help your skin cells drink in (and retain) moisture. And masks with NaCl can smooth away dead skin, exfoliating your mug for a closer shave.

A vibrant installation greeted visitors to the Carolina Herrera showroom, where last week Wes Gordon showed his resort collection for the brand. The clothes and potted flowering plants were bright and pretty, in keeping with the vision Gordon saw for the house when he first signed on as a consultant working under “Mrs. Herrera,” and with which he forged ahead upon taking full creative control after her retirement.
That Gordon has swiftly infused the collections with a younger, lighter aura is readily apparent, and we set a date to talk about his vision in greater detail. But when I arrive two days later for that chat, there are other topics to discuss first, like farming. Gordon and his husband Paul Arnhold, two citified guys hailing from Atlanta and Manhattan, respectively, own a place in Roxbury, Conn., “the gayest farm in the world.” (That’s Gordon’s distinction, as I am consummately unqualified to judge farming on any criteria.) He makes that statement after namechecking the farm’s two bunnies, Kate and Pippa. The dog, Birdie, thinks they’re her puppies. (Understandable confusion; all three are black and white.)
Gordon and Arnhold spend as many weekends at Thistledown Farm as possible, but not all weekends, and not
When it comes to dressing up as the temperatures rise, there are plenty of ways to keep things cool.
Here are three surefire ways to pull off the suited look this season—no matter where you’re headed.
1. Cotton Casual
The perfect combination of form and function, cotton suits are stiffer than winter wools but lighter and far more breathable. Dress them up with a button-down and loafers. Or keep things casual with a T-shirt and sneakers.
When the heat index spikes and humidity soars, this southern staple stays cool and breathable, a stylish option at both work and summertime events Seersucker is also a lot of fun to wear, adding panache and personality to your wardrobe. No wonder it’s the go-to ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼summer-wedding attire.
Brooks Brothers Regent Fit Stripe Seersucker Suit ($ 498, brooksbrothers.com); Dolce & Gabbana White Dress Shirt ($ 395, select Dolce & Gabbana stores); Thom Browne Classic Necktie, ($ 190, select Thom Browne stores); To Boot New York Capo in Cognac ($ 395, toboot.com); and matching To Boot New York Cognac Calf Belt ($ 150, toboot.com); Kane 11 Lemans Vapor Socks ($ 21, kane11.com).
3. The Right Blend
Contrary to popular belief, you can wear wool in the summer—provided it’s the right wool. Look for a suit marked “summer weight.” The fabric is lighter and has a looser weave, making it as breathable and comfy as cotton or linen.

PARIS — Givenchy, the brand that spearheaded the luxury streetwear revolution with its Rottweiler print T-shirts and high-top sneakers, believes the next big wave in men’s wear is tailoring.
When creative director Clare Waight Keller stages her first stand-alone men’s runway display on Wednesday evening as the special guest of the Pitti Uomo trade show in Florence, expect a hefty dose of the couture sensibility she’s been honing since arriving at the house in 2017, succeeding Riccardo Tisci.
Philippe Fortunato, chief executive officer of Givenchy since 2014, said while there’s still healthy demand for the brand’s logo merchandise, timeless looks are making a comeback.
“Fashion will be evolving from that very conspicuous, obvious logo statement into something which is much more refined, sophisticated, less branded, with a strong emphasis on classicism,” he told WWD in an interview at the French fashion house’s historic headquarters on Avenue George V here.

“These are fashion pendulums that are swinging. We’re very happy to embrace that, and we want to work toward a stronger coordination from that statement between men’s and women’s collections,” he added. “You will see a bit less of that overall big branding in the collections.”

A spa facial is great, but you can really get one at home: wash, exfoliation, steam, blackhead removal, mask, lotion. What’s your bathroom not outfitted for? Laser facials. We spoke with Kelly Rheel, owner of Flash Lab Laser Suite in New York City, about why you might want to get zapped.
What Does a Laser Facial Do?
There are different machines, but some of the most sought-after models shoot lasers at skin to boost collagen production to make your face look healthy and feel softer. Lasers can reduce acne scars, improve tone, and remove tattoos. The FDA-approved Clear and Brilliant machine is widely available and costs about $ 400 per treatment. You’ll notice a change after one session, but some people will want to do three to six monthly treatments. (Many spas offer package deals.)
It stings, but it’s over in about 15 minutes. Some treatments go deeper into the skin, and your technician will apply numbing cream half an hour before you get going. (Also, a pre-treatment whiskey helps.)
Will I Be Red in the Face?
Your skin will be pink and warm to the touch for up to 24 hours, then feel rough for up to three days. It’s not so severe that you have to hide out. Just hydrate and use a moisturizer with SPF.

SUMMER SPIRIT: New York-based brand and retailer Opening Ceremony is launching a capsule collection for Yoox.
Designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, who founded the brand in 2002, have been inspired by the vibrant energy of music festivals to design the eight-item women’s wear lineup, which comprises sweetheart neckline dresses, empire waist tops, crop tops, printed pants and bike shorts.
“We have such a personal connection to music and it has been at the center of what we do since the beginning of Opening Ceremony,” Leon said. “This collection is inspired by our love for music, and the energy and youth culture around musical festivals,” he added, while Lim underscored how “discovery and individuality” are values they share with the e-tailer.
The collection favors a mix-and-match approach by offering relaxed silhouettes crafted in bright floral fabrics and graphic polka dots as well as featuring basic pieces coming in contrasting solid colors.

“The pieces are versatile and can be styled together or separately, so people can let their individual style shine through. We want people to have fun with this collection and envision people wearing these pieces at musical festivals in the summer and beyond,” concluded Leon.

Hyperhidrosis is the pits, as is any excessive sweating or persistent perspiration. It prevents you from feeling comfortable in your own skin and clothes, and it forces you to soak in your own bodily swamp all day while your coworkers question a curious stench in the air. You need to step things up with clinical-strength deodorants.
A clinical-strength stick or wipe is enhanced with aluminum to neutralize and stop sweat for up to seven days, depending on the product and your own regimen and reaction to it. They’re stronger than the usual antiperspirants, but their aluminum grades are higher.
If you suffer from any such sweaty condition, then the clinical-strength deodorants below will keep you smelling and feeling fresh. Use any of them year round if you need to, or ad hoc if you have a big work presentation and first date approaching.

In the era of fashion-as-entertainment, it’s amazing it took this long for a designer to stage a full-fledged runway extravaganza at an actual Hollywood studio.
Jeremy Scott did just that Friday night in Los Angeles, bringing a monster of a Moschino Resort collection to Universal Studios’ eerily blissful suburban Americana stand-in used for “Leave it To Beaver,” “The Munsters” and “Desperate Housewives.”
It was the culmination of a lifelong dream for the designer, who has ambitions to make a film of his own one day a la Tom Ford, and remembered the first time he visited Universal Studios from Kansas City at age 13 in typical aw-shucks fashion: “We stayed at the Sheraton. I was with my family, and I told the other people in the hot tub I was going to be a famous star one day…I didn’t really think I was going to be a fashion star.”
The show was scripted from the moment guests entered the gate of the studio, hallowed ground for Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg – and for Hollywood’s most prolific costume designer, Edith Head. With a short video of Scott as tour guide, guests took the backlot tour trams, rolling past sets for “Psycho” and “Jaws” and
Bright, busy, and colorful prints are back this summer. Sinuous, floriferous prints and patterns have come around again, daring men to once again embrace the breezy, flowery blouse as the go-to summer shirt. And thanks to Todd Snyder’s new Liberty Prints collection, you can be among the most sinuous and floriferous at your summer gathering.
Okay, enough of the flowery language. We love floral prints, and are firm in our belief that it takes a confident man to wear them without irony. Of course, bright colors and natural patterns are the ideal summer palette. It’s particularly suited for backyard parties and dockside barbecues. If you think you’re making a bold statement by wearing a flowery shirt, you’re absolutely right. If you believe you’re an original, well, Oscar Wilde might beg to differ.
What’s the History of Liberty London?
Since 1875, Liberty London has been renowned for its signature floral patterns. From the outset, its designs were used in everything from wallpaper to clothing, from eyeglass cases to furnishings. The store’s founder Arthur Liberty sought to collect and curate the finest, most exotic goods from around the world.
From the outset, Liberty’s floral motifs embodied a quintessential Englishness. The company was both an advocate and beneficiary of the Art Nouveau movement. In the 1960s Liberty successfully rebranded its trademark designs into Swinging Sixties-cool, tinged by nostalgia. Today, its familiar-yet-exotic archive of over 45,000 vintage floral designs have been captivating artistic shoppers for nearly 150 years.
“Familiar-yet-exotic” perfectly captures the spirit of Todd Snyder’s legendary collabs. Todd has never hesitated in reaching out to other designers and labels to incorporate nostalgia into modern design. And his Todd Snyder x Liberty London Collection is no exception, with camp collar shirts and shorts that showcase this irresistible handiwork.
It’s not a huge selection, with just three prints in both shirts and shorts. But the Todd Snyder x Liberty London Collection is guaranteed to make a splash at any summer gathering—as long as you wear it with confidence, of course.

FEMALE PERSUASION: Celine is putting the spotlight on women artists with its latest boutique in Paris, its fourth opening in the French capital in as many months.
The store on Rue Duphot, just off Rue Saint-Honoré, carries women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories. In line with creative director Hedi Slimane’s new retail concept, inaugurated in New York City in February, the 3,770-square-foot space features a mix of his furniture designs, vintage pieces and original art works.
They include a ceramic sculpture by German artist Katinka Bock; a sculpture by Chinese artist Hu Xiaoyuan incorporating materials such as rosewood, ink, raw silk and nails; a wall-mounted sculpture by Canadian artist Georgia Dickie, who often works with found objects, and a work by fellow Canadian Rochelle Goldberg. Rounding out the selection is a man, Brazilian artist Deyson Gilbert.

Walls are covered in stone including Grand Antique marble, a deep black stone with graphic white veining from the South of France, and travertine from Iran, in an overall design that blends elements of Brutalism, Modernism, Bauhaus and Dutch art movement De Stijl.
Among the store’s most striking features is a staircase linking the ground floor to the first floor, framed

Harry’s new 2 in 1 ($ 7) is a quick, nourishing way to clean and condition your hair without stripping it of its natural oils and essences. It lathers up nicely and rinses clean, and then you’re done. No fooling around with a separate bottle of conditioner, no waiting 60 seconds for some magical conditioning effect to take place. That’s it, you’re done.
And it has a pleasant scent that isn’t overly fragrant, with light notes of lavender as well as bracing peppermint, and soothing eucalyptus. It’s great for all hair types, plus it’s paraben-, dye-, and sulfate-free. With enough moisturizing properties to make it okay to use it everyday.
Now you’re ready to move on to another of Harry’s fantastic hair grooming products.
Harry’s Sculpting Gel ($ 8) is perfect for guys who want a light but firm hold on their coif. It locks in any style in any shape, but remains soft and gentle to the touch. Unless, of course, you’re going for a slicker look, in which case you comb it through while your hair is wet.
It won’t fade or flake away light some other gels, and there’s no alcohol—so it won’t dry or damage your hair. And it rinses out clean at the end of the day. Paraben-free, sulfate-free, and never tested on animals, Harry’s Sculpting Gel has a light and refreshing scent, with hints of lemon and fresh herbs. It leaves your hair firmly in place, and won’t come off on your—or anyone else’s—fingers.
For long-haired dudes after a more natural look, Harry’s has something for you as well. For an unruly mane that desires a soft hold and a carefree finish, you need Harry’s Taming Cream ($ 8). It’s lightweight cream that’s ideal for curly, coarse, thick hair, leaving it naturally casual without feeling stiff or sticky.

This stuff is great for guys who want to look like they put zero effort into their hair. With a matte finish and malleable hold, Harry’s Texturizing Putty ($ 12) delivers subtle definition without stickiness or stiffness. It’s ideal for professionals, guys with short hair who want keep it tidy without looking like they spent more than a few minutes in front of the mirror.

It leaves your hair smelling rich and woodsy, and lets everyone know how you feel about your hair: There are far more important things for a man to worry about.

PARIS — Colette has left the building, but its spirit is alive and well: the space that housed the Paris concept store for 20 years will reopen on Saturday as Saint Laurent Rive Droite, a new retail format developed by creative director Anthony Vaccarello that will sell everything from Jean Prouvé chairs to Saint Laurent-branded condoms.
Billed as “a creative and cultural destination,” the new boutique and its sister unit on Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, opening the same day, represent a departure for Saint Laurent, known for its minimal stores featuring acres of veiny marble and gleaming shelves.
In addition to offering a wide range of products — including limited-edition collaborations and rare books and vinyl — alongside women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories, the Paris space will also house a takeaway coffee counter and a club that can be turned into an event space.
The ground floor is chockablock with novelty branded items including gold skateboards, yoga mats, water bottles, earphones, Frisbees, phone cases, lighters, stationery, matchboxes, cocktail sticks and USB keys — there will even be biscuits featuring founder Yves Saint Laurent’s drawings.
“The idea was to propose a larger vision of Saint Laurent beyond the clothes, accessories and campaigns,” Vaccarello
News flash! Allbirds just dropped four new summer colors. If you haven’t yet sunk your feet into the soft, breathable glory that is all-wool Allbirds, here’s a rare opportunity to do so while still being a trendsetter. If you’re already an Allbirds advocate, then this is your chance to stand out from the flock.
The Shoreline Collection features four new coastal-inspired colorways that are ideal for summertime. And they’re in styles that are awesome for warm weather fun. They cost the same as standard Allbirds—but these Limited Edition colorways will fly off the shelves. So if you’re on the fence, you’d better hop on over it, and quick.
This fresh aqua colorway is reminiscent of cool blue pool water, and makes us want to signal for the cabana boy to bring us another mimosa. It’s available in Allbirds’ original Wool Runner and high-topped Tree Topper, and also in the casual Tree Skipper ($ 95, above). It’s a laced summer slip-on, perfect for kicking off and relaxing in the chaise.
Hot August nights and slow summer sunsets call for a smoldering colorway, and the Sunkissed delivers. It’s available in four Allbirds styles, including Wool Runners, Tree Skippers, Tree Toppers, and the breathable Tree Runners ($ 95, above). You can get it with a matching sole, but we rather like the contrast of the light grey here.
Just because the sun is bright and hot doesn’t mean your shoes have to be. Stay cool, calm, and collected in this subdued, classy colorway. It’s only available in Allbirds’ original Wool Runner style ($ 95, above), and only with the color-matched sole. But don’t let the fabric scare you; 100 percent natural Merino stays cool when it’s hot, and warm when it’s cool. And it’s totally suited for year-round wear—even to the office.
This icy blue can chill the vibe at any summer gathering. It’s also available with the summer active Tree Runner sneaker ($ 95, shown at top), but we’ll take it paired with Allbirds also-chill, lace-less summer Tree Loungers slip-ons ($ 95, above). Perfect for when you have a drink in your hand and your toes in the sand, just like Diamond Dave.
Remember, these fresh Allbirds colorways won’t last—they rarely do, but because these are so perfectly summer-suited, do yourself a favor and jump on this. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to add a free all-wool Allbirds beer koozie to your shopping cart. Once you add a pair of shoes, the $ 10 price tag drops right off, automatically.

WAITING TO EXHALE: The eight finalists for the LVMH Prize for Young Designers will have to hold their breath for a few months longer: the finals of the competition, traditionally held in June, has been postponed until Sept. 4, the group said Wednesday.
LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the luxury conglomerate which holds the annual prize, did not provide a reason for the delay, but a source familiar with the situation cited calendar conflicts among some of the senior executives and designers expected to attend the prize-giving ceremony.
Last year’s event took place on June 6 in the presence of Emma Stone and Jaden Smith, both Louis Vuitton brand ambassadors. Japanese designer Masayuki Ino won the main prize with his streetwear label Doublet, while the runner-up special prize went to South Korean designer Rok Hwang’s London-based women’s wear label Rokh.
Jaden Smith, Masayuki Ino and Emma Stone.
Among those competing for this year’s grand prize of 300,000 euros, plus a year of coaching from experts at family-controlled LVMH — the parent of brands including Louis Vuitton, Dior and Fendi — are four labels making gender-neutral clothes, two women’s wear designers and two men’s wear designers.
The finalists are Anrealage, designed by Kunihiko Morinaga; Bethany Williams;

But the best part is, the collection is not so massive as to be overwhelming. Like the products within it, the men’s collection is straightforward and to the point.

FRAGRANCE FACE: Dua Lipa has been named the ambassador of YSL Beauté’s upcoming women’s fragrance.
“I connect so much with the campaign because of its fearlessness,” the songstress said in a statement. “I stand for the importance of being confident, strong and powerful, and of not compromising on who you are, what you do and what you believe in, of always being proud of the things you do, and I feel that goes down very well with the same philosophy behind Yves Saint Laurent’s new fragrance.”
“The voice of her generation, Dua Lipa embodies the values of independence and freedom, which have always been part of Yves Saint Laurent’s DNA,” said Stephan Bezy, international general manager of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté at L’Oréal.
London-born Lipa broke onto the scene with her eponymous first album in 2017 and now is the most streamed female artist worldwide.
Lipa was nominated for five categories at the 2018 Brit Awards. With more than a billion views on YouTube for the video of her single “New Rules,” she became the youngest female artist to reach this milestone.
She has won two Grammy awards and three Brit awards, and on Instagram has amassed 30.3 million followers.

Earlier this month, the brand War Paint launched an advertisement for a line of men’s makeup—specifically, concealer, tinted moisturizer, foundation, bronzer, and anti-shine powder. There aren’t a lot of brands that target makeup directly to men. On paper, it’s a winning formula: a market opportunity upon which brands like War Paint can capitalize. After all, there are plenty of skincare and haircare brands “for men”. Why not launch a men’s makeup brand?
The aforementioned ad, however, chose a very targeted angle, showcasing a muscled, tattooed “man’s man”, if you will, with skull rings and perky pecs, applying tinted moisturizer to his face. The implication: This brand is for REAL MEN. Grunt! A tweet from War Paint explained they created these products because they “couldn’t find a makeup brand formulated specifically for men’s skin”. Huh? “It’s about understanding that not all men have that confidence [to buy makeup in the women’s aisles],” the founder said in another video. “I didn’t, and I suffered.”
I can understand being a victim of bullying for cystic acne or vitiligo or birthmarks, but not for fear of buying Maybelline. The muscley ad itself has since been deleted, but you can envision it easily, like a razor commercial trying to sexify its new 5-blade technology while playing during a WWE broadcast.
The Internet Powers That Be quickly took War Paint to task, and for a number of rightful reasons. One, that Native American-appropriated name. Two, men’s skin is exactly the same as women’s skin. It’s your genetics that take hold instead: While men have larger pores on average, gender plays no role in oil levels, texture, or complexion. And three, the Web called out the way War Paint positioned itself in this corner of the ring, specifically by using the hypermasculine actor and no other models, capitalizing on outdated male stereotypes.
War Paint very much pinned itself into this corner—especially in an industry that’s rounding its edges against consumers who are sharpening their senses. I’ve been writing about grooming for nearly six years, for just about every men’s publication. If you’ve ever Googled tips on styling your hair or trimming your beard, there’s a good chance I wrote that article. Sometimes I write for guys in their 30s, sometimes for young men starting college, or for those going grey and losing their hair. More and more, I’ve been asked by editors to write about products like concealer, primer, and tinted moisturizer—things many of us refer to as makeup, not that it matters what you call it. In the last year especially, the positioning I use in these articles has hinged as well. We aren’t holding our readers’ hands as much when it comes to personal care.
We tell you about the function of the product, and endorse a favorite, just as we would a conditioner or a moisturizer. Some male audiences still need an encouraging push, like “Concealer is not makeup, just like lip balm isn’t lipstick. Try it. Maybe you’ll like it.” Take this as my vow to let go of all hands, moving forward on the matter. It’s a learning moment for me, also, as a grooming writer.
I wrote about War Paint a couple times last year, as soon as they were out the gate. Their products work really well, I should add. I recommended them confidently, despite the less-than-desirable name. I even liked that they had positioned themselves as a men’s brand, because I know the audience well: Men should be using these kinds of products, but they can be stubborn. There’s something about our fragile egos that can’t be caught wearing makeup, much less shopping amongst brands with pink labels or female models. As a proud queer man, I type that with sarcasm and exhaustion. It’s all the bad things—heteronormative, stereotypical, toxic, fragile masculinity. But as a grooming writer who knows his audience, I understand that guys are more apt to buy a product targeted at men as opposed to women. (And the same in reverse.)
While I delight in genderless, unisex brands that understand the mass market, I’m not suggesting grooming and beauty brands shy away from targeting a gendered audience. But target wisely: Don’t make up any facts. Don’t suggest this consumer was ignored or marginalized. He wasn’t. He was just too proud. But as his collective mind opens up, educate him on the functional benefits of the product and brand. After all, that’s the strong suit, since the very tenet of grooming is function. Men like function. Women like function. And we all like to feel included. So, unless you only want to target a hypermasculine audience with a fragile ego, then give us a campaign that includes all the faces of your target demographic. Your product isn’t as innovative as you wish it were, I promise you. But advertising sure as hell can be.
For what it’s worth, I look forward to War Paint’s next campaign, and hope they correct course. I suspect they will. Just as we editors and writers have learned and evolved with the industry—and just as we get to influence those evolutions—I’m happy to see brands grow and change with it, too.
For the time being, let me show you an ad that got it right. It’s from Harry’s. Here’s a brand that could be targeting both men and women with razors, but they’ve always honed in on men. The brand just sold for a billion dollars, so you really can’t convince anyone that this positioning was a bad idea. In this ad, Harry’s hasn’t left any of us out. It features all types of men, of varying skin colors, be they straight or queer, cis or trans, baby faced or fully bearded, young or not so very. What they did leave out is the misguided masculinity and the misinformation.
And, for good measure, here are some makeup products I like, and you might like, too. Some are targeted at men, some aren’t, and some land someplace in between. After all, what does it matter, if they all work effectively?
French Champagne house Perrier-Jouët refers to its cuvées or vintages in fashion lingo, comparing them to silk lace and citing their floral and intricate style. It should come as no surprise then that Perrier-Jouët tapped Prabal Gurung to design a bottle and Champagne flutes, the first in a series of designer collaborations. The bubbly will be served at tonight’s CFDA Fashion Awards at the Brooklyn Museum in Gurung’s flutes.
Perrier-Jouët in 1902 became associated with Art Nouveau when a swirl of Japanese anemone were engraved on a bottle. Gurung, who said the brand’s bottles “look like works of art,” rendered the delicate anemone flower in his bold hues, infusing the design with new energy.
The designer said he was inspired by the beauty and elegance of Perrier-Jouët’s signature flower. “We wanted to bring our brand ideal — that we’re stronger in color — to the design, so we juxtaposed our bright-hued floral with the delicate Perrier-Jouët anemone to celebrate who we both are and what we stand for together. The colors are a metaphor for our inclusive ethos and represent the way I want the world to look.
“Flowers have always been my favorite print to design with,” Gurung said. “They’re beautiful and
Todd Snyder just has a gift for finding the sweet spot between nostalgic romance and modern feasibility. His savvy blend of contemporary fashion with timeless style comes through in most of his designs—though we particularly love the collaborations. The brand’s latest collab with legendary watch brand Timex is one for the ages.
The story goes something like this: While browsing through the Timex archives one day, Todd’s eye was captured by a long-forgotten timepiece that seemed achingly familiar. But this was more than simple nostalgia. The Mercury looked just like the watch Todd imagined his own father wore. It had a silver face and a brown leather strap, with just a hint of gold. Somehow, the old Timex seemed rugged and elegant at the same time. Classy, but tough. Todd was determined to bring this overlooked classic back to life according to today’s exacting standards.
So to honor the memory and style of Todd Snyder’s father, and of every dad who wore a Timex with class and grace, the Welton Bi-Metal brings yet another classic into the 21st century. Just in time for Father’s Day.
The Perfect Father’s Day Gift
Originally named the Mercury, the new Timex + Todd Snyder Welton Bi-Metal ($ 158) retains the sleek, form-follows-function appeal of mid-century design while incorporating the latest in timekeeping technology. The original V-Conic has been replaced with quartz movement. A 34mm stainless steel case houses a brushed silver face with simple, elegant gold numerals and hands, and it’s capped by a domed acrylic crystal and adorned with a subtle 18mm lug. Bound with a brown leather strap, the aesthetic of the casual but classy Welton Bi-Metal hearkens back to the golden age of American design.
Water resistant up to 30 meters, the Welton Bi-Metal is perfectly sized and elegant without being flashy. It still exudes a rugged grace, and its style will let you take it from the office to the workshop without missing a beat. Of all the Timex + Todd Snyder collaborations, this is the one we’d most like to give—or get—for Father’s Day.
So here’s to dads everywhere. Thanks for showing us, day in and day out, that men can be rugged and classy at the same time.

MONACO BRIDE: Charlotte Casiraghi tied the knot with Dimitri Rassam, the father of her seven-month-old son Balthazar, in a civil ceremony in Monaco on Saturday.
The bride wore a short guipure dress embellished with crystal-embroidered bows and satin sandals, all designed by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent, the brand said in a statement. Her hair was styled by John Nollet, the hairstylist said in a separate statement.
Guests at the ceremony included socialites Bianca Brandolini and Eugenie Niarchos, as well as her brothers Andrea Casiraghi, with his wife Tatiana Santo Domingo, and Pierre Casiraghi, with his spouse Beatrice Borromeo, according to French media reports.
Rassam, a film producer, is the son of French actress Carole Bouquet and producer Jean-Pierre Rassam. It is the first wedding for Casiraghi, who has another son, Raphaël, from a previous relationship with French humorist Gad Elmaleh.
The daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco and granddaughter of American film star Grace Kelly, Casiraghi is a regular at fashion week events, regularly attending Gucci and Saint Laurent shows.
The Monaco royal appeared in Saint Laurent’s fall 2018 campaign and had previously featured in ads for Gucci, which like Saint Laurent belongs to French conglomerate Kering, headed by François-Henri Pinault. She also
By now you know about Allbirds, the San Francisco-based company that makes Merino wool shoes. Everyone raves about them: people love the style, the comfort, the carbon-neutral production. And we love Allbirds, too. That’s why we’re really excited to tell you about Allbirds’ latest promotion. Buy a pair of Allbirds today, and you can get a Merino wool Allbirds koozie, free!
Normally $ 10, Allbirds is throwing in a free koozie with every shoe purchase for a limited time. Turns out, the same merino wool that works so well at keeping your feet cool and dry (or warm and dry) is also great for keeping your beverage cold and your hand warm. Who knew?
So, while you’ve probably heard of Allbirds, have you tried the shoes yet? Then it’s time to find out what all the buzz is about. Give Allbirds a try today, and get your free koozie. If after 30 days you’re not confident that this is the world’s most comfortable shoe, Allbirds will take it back and refund your money, no questions asked. But please, keep the koozie.
The company is based on a simple plan: Better materials, better design, and responsible, sustainable production. That’s it. The sheep wool—20 percent finer than human hair—is responsibly harvested (and the sheep are treated very well, thanks). The manufacturing utilizes modern techniques to reduce energy and materials waste. The lightweight, comfortable soles are made of low-density foam that’s made with castor bean oil, for supreme cushioning and a lower carbon output compared to petroleum-based foams. The laces and eyelets are made using 100 percent recycled plastic, and the packaging is 90 percent post-consumer recycled cardboard.
And the shoes are as simple and clean as the production—free of gaudy logos and unnecessary embellishments that take away from what the product was designed for: to be the most comfortable shoe ever. And there’s the kicker: they’re machine washable.
There are only three Allbirds styles for men, and just two materials to choose from: Merino wool, or Allbirds’ proprietary knit that’s made using responsibly-farmed eucalyptus pulp. The shoes are broken up into two families: Wool, and Tree. The Wool is renowned for its temperature regulating and moisture-wicking softness that keeps your feet warm in cold weather, and cool in hot weather. The Tree, meanwhile, is designed for lightness and breathability. Best of all, the eucalyptus has that same cooling effect on your feet that it does in your nose when you breathe it in. Both are soft and not scratchy at all. And, of course, responsibly produced.
You can go for the Runners, active shoes designed with a lightweight, low-density foam outsole made for all-day comfort. Or you can opt for Loungers, comfy slip-ons with a super-lightweight sugar-cane SweetFoam sole. Those come in either the Wool or Tree material.

CHICAGO — “Incredible” is how Virgil Abloh described being recognized by his hometown with his first major retrospective, “Figures of Speech,” opening June 10 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
“I think within the narrative, within the work and the show is a little bit like, it’s a little bit sort of like, reaffirming these full circles like happen in places,” said Abloh, the artistic director of Louis Vuitton men’s wear and founder of Off-White during a sit-down interview Thursday morning at the new NikeLab Chicago Re-Creation Center, at 673 North Michigan Avenue.
“We’re in Chicago, it’s usually not a place that has like — it’s known for its art and it’s known for its architecture and design history,” said Abloh. “I think in terms of contemporary art that emanates, me as a contemporary artist emanated around the world to sort of do certain things, it’s sort of a full circle to have them curate a show and recognize that work.”
It was a full-circle connection with Michigan Avenue, as well — this is where his dream to work in fashion began, when he and pal Kanye West visited the Vuitton store just a few blocks away.
“It was this street,” Abloh said.
Not to be a downer, but 2019 could produce the hottest summer we’ve ever experienced. And while your comfort is far from global warming’s biggest victim, it is the one you have to manage every time you go for a hike, visit the farmer’s market, or spend a day touring a new city.
PARIS — Coperni, Hed Mayner, Koché and Kwaidan Editions are this year’s finalists for the French fashion prize ANDAM, worth 250,000 euros.
“This year’s selection of Andam finalists was particularly diverse and interesting,” noted Renzo Rosso, head of Italian fashion group OTB, owner of Maison Margiela, who is this year’s mentor to the prize winner. Rosso noted the selection was not linked to a single market trend or “too business driven.”
Coperni, founded by Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant, was a finalist for an ANDAM prize in 2014. The designers went on to become artistic directors of Courrèges until 2017 and relaunched their brand earlier this year, taking to the catwalk for Paris Fashion Week in February.
Israeli designer Hed Mayner also showed his men’s wear collection in Paris in February, playing on bulk and layering in neutral tones. Koché, Christelle Kocher’s upscale ready-to-wear label with streetwear and contemporary art references, was featured in WWD’s feature “Ten of Tomorrow in 2016.”
Léa Dickely and Hung La are the design duo behind Kwaidan Editions, a finalist for the LVMH prize last year.
ANDAM, the French acronym for the National Association for the Development of the Fashion Arts, is one of France’s oldest and most prestigious prizes,
The inimitable Kyle Chandler is on screens large and small this summer. He’s in for a monster haul at the box office with Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and streaming into homes across the U.S. with Hulu’s Catch-22.
But he’s making waves for more than just his acting chops. His textured hair has the volume and movement surfers dream of, as seen in Chandler’s June 2019 Men’s Journal cover shoot. It’s enhanced even further by gray hairs, and is an all-out showcase of his natural gifts.
It’s a look that’s easily imitated, too—with a few restrictions. It you want to sport Chandler’s hairstyle for yourself, then follow these tips from barber Eli Shaffer, of Blind Barber Highland Park. Shaffer outlines the kind of hair this style requires, how to modify it for a receding hairline, what to tell your barber, and, of course, how to maintain and style.
How to Get Kyle Chandler’s Hairstyle: The Kind of Hair You Need
Guys with medium-density hair will have the easiest time emulating this look, especially if they have natural waves or cowlicks, Shaffer says. “It doesn’t hurt to have a thicker head of hair, either,” he adds. “Chandler has a really amazing front cowlick that’s highlighted by a swath of gray hair. It’s super unique.”
Guys with gray hair will also enjoy the added texture: “The gray hairs lack melanin—the component that gives hair a hue. The two work together to give hair a lot of movement. For guys considering covering their grays, this is a great reason to embrace them.”
If you have a receding hairline, then Shaffer suggests keeping things loose and textured. “The trick to managing a receding hairline is to not cover it up. A natural recession can give a hairstyle character.”
Who is this style not for? Men with slick, straight hair. “This movement and texture is reserved for hair with natural waves,” Shaffer says. It’s something no product can help you emulate when your hair is medium-short like this.
Ask for a classic taper, says Shaffer, and leave the clippers down. Get a scissor cut on the sides, approximately half an inch long. “The top is point cut, connected to the sides, with a round shape, approximately two inches long.” Your natural waves should be texturizing enough on their own, but the barber can further texturize the style with shears if need be.
How to Maintain This Style
As with most short or medium styles, you’ll want to visit your barber for a cleanup roughly every six weeks, says Shaffer. That could be shortened to four weeks if you want an especially clean perimeter, or eight if you don’t mind getting a little shaggy. But after that point, you really no longer have a “hairstyle” so much as a grown-out one. If you stick to 4-6 weeks, however, then Shaffer says to have the barber take off about half an inch, so that the shape and structure are maintained.
How to Style It
Again, your natural waves and thickness will work to your advantage here, so styling is fairly easy. Shaffer says to start by applying sea salt spray on clean, damp, towel-dried hair. The salt spray enhances texture and definition. “No blow dryer is needed and will actually work against some of the natural movement created in this style,” Shaffer adds. You should be able to coach it into place with your fingers. You could also comb it into place, then lift and separate it with your fingers for a piecier finish. Embrace the dishevelment: It only further showcases your waves and texture.

It has been teased since December, most recently on Tuesday night when Marc Jacobs posted three new photographs to Instagram. Today, the designer’s new collection, THE Marc Jacobs, makes its debut at retail.
The launch marks a major milestone for the Jacobs brand. The timing seems perfect, Jacobs having put together a string of strong runway collections, including fall’s masterful outing, along with an interlude that fascinated across generations, in the form of resort 2019’s look-for-look redux of the seminal grunge collection he designed for Perry Ellis for spring 1993. That collection got the wheels turning for THE Marc Jacobs, which, for those familiar with the history of the designer and his brand, registers as something of a redux itself. Not in line-for-line reissues (although there is an archival component), but in its positioning both within the greater market, and within the Marc Jacobs brand itself.
“I want either a beautifully made version of a very simple thing or I want something very out there. That’s it, that’s what I like,” Jacobs said during a phone chat on Tuesday afternoon, describing his consumer approach to fashion.
The dichotomy applies as well to his long-standing vision of his work. He and his, longtime business

HOMECOMING: There’s no place like home, according to Chanel.
Chanel’s next Métiers d’Art collection will be shown in Paris on Dec. 5, according to a statement issued by the house. The exact location is yet to be revealed.
The Métiers d’Art 2019-2020 collection will be the first designed exclusively by Virginie Viard, Karl Lagerfeld’s longtime right hand, who took over creative direction of the house following the designer’s death in February.
The collection traveled to the Metropolitan Museum of Art for New York for Chanel Métiers d’Art 2018-2019 and Lagerfeld’s native Hamburg, Germany, in 2017. The Métiers d’Art collection hadn’t been presented in France since the Paris-Cosmopolite collection at the Ritz in 2016, in honor of the luxury hotel’s reopening.
Lagerfeld introduced this pre-fall ready-to-wear collection — embellished with the specialty couture ateliers Chanel owns — in 2002. Previous destinations for the Métiers d’Art show include Edinburgh, Scotland; Shanghai; Rome; and Dallas.
The announcement comes as Chanel is strengthening its bond with the French capital. In February 2018, the house signed on as the exclusive private sponsor of the renovation of the Grand Palais with plans to pledge 25 million euros toward the works, which are due to be completed in time for the Summer Olympics in
You’ve been asking your barber for “the usual” for too long now. These three styles are trending for spring, but they’re also fairly low-maintenance and easy to wear for most men. Whether you’re going for something with a little length or shorter on the sides, here are the best spring haircuts and styles to consider this season, according to three experts.
“Instead of that buzzed, faded look, where the sides go from thick at the top to sparse, opt for more allover evenness on the sides. It’s a very tailored, groomed look that’s still short.” — Oscar Blandi, celebrity stylist
“Have your barber use shears and razors instead of clippers for a rounder shape. To style, use a foam or pomade and blow dry and shape hair.” — Paul Wilson, American Crew’s global artistic director
Buzz Cut 2.0
“For fine hair, a choppy cut with a little length in front keeps you sharp. For texture, I like Acqua di Parma Serum—it’s great for all the hair on your head.” — Natalia Bruschi, celebrity groomer

PARIS — Having collaborated with brands including Fendi, Supreme and Off-White on high-profile limited-edition models, German luggage-maker Rimowa has focused its efforts in-house for its first collection of colored suitcases since the introduction of its new visual identity last year.
One year in the making, the polycarbonate cases in four Millennial-friendly hues are scheduled to launch on Wednesday at Japanese department store Isetan in Tokyo, before a worldwide rollout on June 6 in Rimowa flagships, department store corners and online.
It’s the latest step in the reinvention of the 120-year-old company under chief executive officer Alexandre Arnault, who engineered its acquisition in 2017 by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. Having drastically cut back its wholesale network and revamped brand communications, Arnault turned to the product itself.
“The first couple of years of what we did really was focusing on collaborations. That was a way for us to bring excitement to buying a suitcase,” he told WWD in an interview at the brand’s new offices at the LVMH headquarters in Paris, where visitors are greeted by a Supreme-branded pinball machine.
“This is the first time in a while where we’ve actually innovated on our own core product. We’re not collaborating with anyone. We’re not having
We’ll tell you something you probably already know: Polo shirts aren’t just a uniform for the golf course. The simple three-button collared shirt is now available in more fabrics, patterns, and styles than ever before, and brands are experimenting with new interpretations of the menswear staple. Whether or not they’ve been in your rotation before, the latest crop of men’s polo shirts are making a strong case for spot in your dresser.
But as you’ll see below, there are lots of great options to choose from. Picking the right polo for you depends on a few different variables, so we reached out to stylists for guidance on what to look for. First off: Make sure you pick one that fits. Size up if the buttons are pulling, says Lisa Cameron, stylist to celebs like Queer Eye‘s Karamo Brown, and make sure you have enough length to cover your stomach if you raise your arms up. But don’t go too baggy—a trimmer polo can accentuate your physique. “If you want to make your arms look a bit bigger,” says stylist Patrick Kenger, “find a polo with some ribbing around the end of the sleeves, which will hug your arms and help them ‘fill out’ the shirt sleeve.”
In addition, try to avoid shirts with lots of branding or big logos. “Keep it clean,” Kenger says.
Stylists agree the polo is a versatile shirt, and you can wear it with quite a few different outfits. For starters, try using it as a replacement for your usual T-shirt.
“One of the best ways I’ve heard it put is that a polo is a gentleman’s T-shirt,” explains Kenger. “If you want to bump things up from the usual T-shirt and jeans outfit, then a polo is a great substitute.”
It also looks great with a suit. You can opt for a monochromatic look by matching your polo with the suit’s color, or go for a complementary color scheme, like a navy suit and pink polo, Cameron advises. You can also try pairing a polo with a bomber jacket, or wearing it with a simple pair of chinos and some sneakers.
Feeling inspired? Here are some of the best new polos to mix up your look this season.

MILAN — Hennes & Mauritz and Love Stories are renewing their partnership.
After debuting a joint lingerie capsule collection last summer, the fast-fashion giant and the Dutch brand have teamed to launch a swimwear-centered line. The announcement came just a few days after the introduction of the Giambattista Valli x H&M collection previewed at the AmfAR gala in Cannes last week.
“It’s a dream to be collaborating with H&M again, offering customers a Love Stories aesthetic at H&M prices,” said the lingerie label’s founder Marloes Hoedeman, adding that the lineup has been designed “for fun summer holidays — whether you’re relaxing with a cocktail or surfing the waves.”
Hitting select stores of the Swedish chain globally on June 13, the “Love Stories Swim Club x H&M” collection will comprise 26 items including T-shirts, sarongs, loose beach tunics, bags, bucket hats, flip-flops and towels, in addition to swimsuits and wetsuits.
Working with H&M’s in-house design team, Hoedeman translated her brand’s signature mix-and-match approach into interchangeable items blending candy colors, animal prints and sporty details.
She was inspired by Seventies-era Slim Aarons photographs of poolside scenes and her own holidays spent in Ibiza to conceive the offering, which is fit for both sunbathing and surfing.

When it comes to gadgetry, you’re an early adopter. So why not give your grooming routine the same high-tech treatment? A new generation of techy grooming products promises to make keeping your hair, beard, and skin in shape way easier than before. Here are the grooming products that will get you looking fresh, faster.
The typical hair dryer takes forever to do its job, and it damages hair in the process. The Dyson Supersonic dries using a jet of air, so it doesn’t have to get so hot. That means it leaves your hair healthier, shinier, and less frizzy—in half the time.
Dab face wash on the Foreo Luna 2 for Men and let the sonic pulses excavate dirt and oil from pores while also rubbing away dead skin. You can also use it before shaving for a smoother result. It’s shower safe, and one charge lasts about seven months.
Anywhere there’s hair, the Braun MGK5080 Grooming Kit has got a solution. (It even has an ear and nose trimmer.) And with 13 length settings, you can change your hair or beard gradually—or all at once.

Donna Sturm, Verdura’s manager for design and product development, died on May 4 at age 67.
The cause of death, according to the company, was a traumatic brain injury incurred on April 24 – the result of being hit by a bicycle while crossing 57th Street on her lunch break.
Sturm spent two decades at Verdura, bringing collections and product assortment to life. Before Verdura, Sturm worked as a bench jeweler for Tiffany & Co.
“Donna was a rare talent and deeply loved, both in the jewelry industry at large and within our close-knit Verdura family. She had a wonderful eye and a tremendous skill for finding unusual materials and bringing them to life,” said Nico Landrigan, president of Verdura and Belperron.
Sturm is survived by her husband Ted Panken, daughter Angelina, mother Joanna DeLuca and sister Bettina Sturm. The family will hold a memorial service at the UN Church Center on June 16 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Could we love Taylor Stitch any more? It’s always been one of our favorite menswear brands. But today, Taylor Stitch doubled down on its responsible sustainability platform with the groundbreaking announcement of Restitch, a bold buyback program to give your clothes a second life and keep them out of landfills.
“Restitch is our response to the clothing industry’s overproduction issue,” says Mike Maher, CEO and co-founder of Taylor Stitch. “85 percent of all apparel ends up in landfills …. Through Restitch, there is no end of life—only end of use.”
Restitch is quick and seamless. Just download a shipping label at taylorstitch.com or visit a Taylor Stitch retail store to drop off your old Taylor Stitch clothes. You earn Common Club credit for every donation, from $ 15-$ 25, which you can then put towards the purchase of new Taylor Stitch gear. Your old TS gear is then reconstructed into fresh, one-of-a-kind garments that are resold at a fraction of the price as part of TS’s Vintage Collection.
How Does Restitch Work?
To kick off the program, Taylor Stitch tapped its devoted community, and received nearly 1,500 garments across outerwear, denim, shirting, knits, footwear, and accessories. From that first batch, the team has selected 42 pieces for its first ever Vintage Collection. Each item is a one-of-a-kind garment. From jeans to Henleys to Chore Coats to chinos, the Vintage Collection is awesome—and it’s already selling out. But never fear. Thanks to Restitch, it’s only a matter of time before the vintage Collection is restocked with more diamonds in the rough.
Since its launch in 2008, Taylor Stitch has been committed to making the world’s best clothing in a way that is kind to the people who make it, the places they make it in, and the planet. The company deploys a hybrid selling model, the Workshop, to bet big on proven winners and mitigate making things that ultimately end up as landfill. Restitch is a continued expression of this in that the program ensures the promise of clothing built to last for the long haul, while also dramatically reducing the company’s carbon, waste, and water footprint.

Rising country music star Kassi Ashton’s talents extend beyond having a great set of pipes and the ability to write moving songs that expose the gritty and vulnerable sides of her personality. Ashton has been designing and sewing her own clothes for as long as she can remember. When Budweiser heard that, it tapped Ashton to create a limited-edition collection that will be sold at a pop-up at CMA Fest, June 6-9 in Nashville.
“I’ve been obsessed with clothes ever since I can remember,” Ashton said. “The first time I was picky about clothes, I had these black corduroy overalls that I hated. My mom made we wear them to kindergarten and I cried in my cubby until my she brought me a change of clothes.”
Ashton in middle school learned how to sew and created her own outfits. She said she jumped at the chance to work with Budweiser on the eight-piece collection. “It’s a big company that was very influential in my youth,” she said. “It’s all my dad drinks; it’s an American staple. This is a new thing for Budweiser. They’re trying to reach out to a new audience.”

Loro Piana is stepping out. The Italian brand, known for its buttery soft textiles, has unveiled a pop-up shop in New York’s Meatpacking District exalting its key footwear styles. Called “The Rare Walk, Meatpacking,” the residency which runs till July 8, takes a fun, spirited approach to its white-soled shoes.
As customers walk into the 16,000-square-foot space at 3 Ninth Avenue, they encounter oversize fabric fixtures mimicking dunes that nod to the Mongolian territory where the brand’s well-known cashmere is sourced. The fixtures prop up the shoes, including variations of the “walk” style and a limited-edition unisex merino wool sneaker exclusive to the Meatpacking store. The store also carries exclusive bags, scarves and a selection of small leather goods.
According to chief executive officer Fabio d’Angelantonio, the summer walk shoes have been popular with a new, younger customer, adding, “It’s been a way for them to discover the brand.”
The pop-up marks the U.S. debut of Loro Piana’s made-to-measure footwear program, which offers a choice of colors, linings and material combinations. A wall of 30 shoes in grid formation broadcasts the color options. The brand has a similar program in its European stores, but the downtown New York store also offers an option
