In salute to the Instagram age, photo prints made a big showing in the spring collections. Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez marked their Proenza Schouler homecoming by decorating some basic materials, like cotton shirting, with photos of New York.
One of my favorite redheads at Only Tease is this beautiful babe named Uma. It’s Saturday and it looks like Uma is ready to head out for a wild night out. She’s wearing sexy grey top, denim miniskirt and wild looking black pantyhose. Or maybe she’s about to stay in for the night. Underneath her outfit, Uma is wearing a light blue satin bra with a matching thong.
Whether you like redheads, blondes or brunettes, I’m sure you’ll find a lady in sexy clothing at Only Tease that you’ll like. Right now, there’s more than 375 models featured at the website with new girls appearing all the time. But of course Only Tease isn’t only about the sexy women, it’s also about all of the sexy clothing that they’re wearing.
Adidas is marking the 20th anniversary of Adam Sandler’s movie The Waterboy in the best way possible. The company has put together the Limited Edition SCLSU Capsule Collection to celebrate Bobby Boucher and the South Central Louisiana State University Mud Dogs.
The collection includes a Boucher jersey, an SCLSU hat, as well as an SCLSU football jacket. The collection will have patches marking the ‘Bourbon Bowl’ and the jersey will have Boucher’s name and number stitched across the back. The Waterboy has long been considered a sports movie classic, and now you’ll be able to show your love with some badass gear.
Here’s a look at what Adidas has put together:
The Waterboy is one of Sandler’s most popular films from his career, having made over $ 185 million at the box office on just a $ 23 million budget back in 1998. The film, which starred Sandler, Henry Winkler, Kathy Bates, Larry Gilliard Jr., and Fairuza Balk, had numerous cameo appearances from real-life football players and personalities, including Lawrence Taylor, Jimmy Johnson, Bill Cowher, Lee Corso, Chris Fowler, Brent Musburger, and Lynn Swann.
The movie followed Sandler’s titular waterboy Bobby Boucher as he found his way onto the field for the middling South Central Louisiana State University Mud Dogs as a fierce linebacker. Winkler starred in the film as Coach Klein, while Bates appeared as Boucher’s domineering mother.
Lines from the movie like “H20,” “Water sucks, it really, really sucks,” “There is something wrong with YOUR medulla oblongata,” and “I like Vicki, and she like me back! And she showed me her boobies and I like them too,” are considered some of the funniest and most memorable from Sandler’s career.
The Waterboy collection hits the Adidas website on October 19.

DOWNING BY THE RIVER: For those who have wondered what it’s like to live like Neiman Marcus fashion director Ken Downing, wait no longer.
Through a Related Cos.-Neiman Marcus effort, Downing has designed and styled the interior of a model residence at Fifteen Hudson Yards. Downing’s 1,464-square-foot model residence has two bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and a price tag of nearly $ 4.3 million. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group, Fifteen Hudson Yards has 285 condos varying in size from one bedroom to four bedrooms.
As a veteran member of the four-fashion-week pack (and the air miles to prove it), Downing gleaned inspiration from the world’s fashion capitals for his at-home curation. His fondness for art collecting was another factor in the final edit. There is also an abundance of color throughout the apartment including pink walls and ceiling, a Venetian-style glass chandelier in purple, a multicolored geometric style rug and a vibrant column painted by Brooklyn artist Nathan Green in the master suite, not to mention the turquoise floor-to-ceiling interior in the condo’s library. Reflective surfaces are meant to bring the West Side view indoors.
Out-of-state residents who have no interest in moving can pick and choose their favorite
Main message: Ryoko Mukasa chose a bright, sun-filled venue for her brand’s inaugural runway show, the softly filtered green of the trees through a wall of glass setting the tone for her collection. She showed loose lavender skirts and pantsuits, bright pink and coral-colored gathered satin jumpsuits, and a layered aquamarine chiffon dress. But her strongest looks had a subtle edginess to them, such as an off-the-shoulder blouse in crisp white shirting, with a thin lace underlay at the neckline, or a checked bias-cut skirt paired with a black-and-white open-knit sweater.
The result: There were some strong pieces, but as a whole the collection felt disjointed, as if the designer tried too hard to incorporate too many contrasting elements.
Tommy Hilfiger is shaking it up.
Hilfiger, which is owned by PVH Corp., has tapped 22-year-old actress Zendaya, who recently starred in “Spiderman: Homecoming,” and “The Greatest Showman,” to be the new global women’s ambassador. She will be featured in the brand’s global integrated campaign beginning in spring 2019.
Furthering the designer’s commitment to expand its women’s businesses, Zendaya will collaborate with Hilfiger to create a Tommy x Zendaya capsule collection. The capsule will launch as a see-now-buy-now collection in February, at a location to be determined. The collaboration is for one season, with options to continue.
Hilfiger previously collaborated with Gigi Hadid on four capsule collections that were shown in New York (“Tommy Pier”), Los Angeles (“Tommyland”), London (“RockCircus”) and Milan (“Drive”). Using the see-now-buy-now format, the collaborations were highly successful for the firm and generated huge spikes in traffic and billions of social media impressions.
The partnership with Zendaya reflects Hilfiger’s continued vision to collaborate with those who share the brand’s spirit and values of breaking conventions and celebrating diversity.
“I love to collaborate with people who are passionate about making their dreams a reality and who inspire the next generation to do the same,” said Hilfiger, founder and principal designer of the

The three lovely ladies in this photo set are none other than Nicole, Hayley Marie and Louise L.

The yearlong celebration of Sonia Rykiel’s 50th anniversary continues with another special project: Generous Sweaters.
Creative director Julie de Libran thought that a capsule collection of sweaters with charitable causes was apropos to celebrate the queen of knits’ golden anniversary. De Libran enlisted a group of international, influential women to design a limited-edition sweater, the proceeds of which will go to a charity of their choosing. The group includes actresses Kirsten Dunst, Sofia Boutella and Kristin Scott Thomas; architect Kazuyo Sejima; model and activist Liya Kebede; artist Langley Fox and ballet dancer and artistic director of the Korean National Ballet Sue-Jin Kang. The charities include La Maison des Femmes, Planned Parenthood, Ving, Hope & Home for Children, Le Refuge, Lemlem Foundation, Okaeri-Gohan Shokun and the Children’s Hospital of Seoul National University.
“These extraordinary women have been much involved in the creative process, each talent has given her precious time to this charity-driven sweater capsule,” said de Libran. “I’m thankful they jumped into this initiative, focusing on charities helping women around the globe. It means a lot in 2018.”
The global launch of the capsule for Sonia Rykiel stores is Nov. 5. In the U.S., 10 Corso Como in New York will carry the collection
Before the start of Miu Miu’s spring show, the room was dark to enhance viewing of close-up video of models’ faces, their hair pulled back in headbands, one with a bold swipe of red across her eyelids, another with crimson lips, that was projected on white bubble letters spelling out the brand’s logo. It made you wonder if a beauty launch was afoot. In fact, the collection was about “deconstructing beauty,” explained Miuccia Prada after the show. “It’s talking about what’s interesting now — tailoring, glamour, elegance — reworking it and that’s what I did.”
You could take her at her word. The building blocks of a woman’s wardrobe, with the exception of any trace of hyper casual athleticwear, were on Prada’s table, up for reassessment. The question posed seemed to be: How to make it modern? The answer was to be to embrace the look of DIY, recycling, upcycling even if everything is brand new. It was all far from homespun, yet it took Prada’s signature ugly/pretty (but pretty perfect) trope in a different direction with a rare exploration of the messier side of imperfection. Consider the casting: aside from a few big name models, the runway was full of
PARIS — The long queues in front of leading luxury stores in Paris this weekend might suggest they were holding the high-end equivalent of a Black Friday sale.
But the crowds gathered outside Dior headquarters on Avenue Montaigne, the Guerlain flagship on Avenue des Champs-Elysées or the Chaumet salons on Place Vendôme weren’t looking to part with any cash — just to catch a glimpse behind the scenes of some of the 70 brands that form LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
From Oct. 12 to 14, the world’s biggest luxury group held the fourth edition of its Journées Particulières open-doors event, which gives members of the public worldwide a rare opportunity to meet the craftspeople who make everything from Louis Vuitton handbags to Tag Heuer watches and Berluti shoes.
The event is the brainchild of Antoine Arnault, head of communication and image of LVMH, who launched the biennial initiative in 2011 to counter a perception that the group was only interested in making money. It has steadily grown in size, with this year’s edition drawing a record 180,000 visitors, up from 145,000 in 2016.
Arnault kicked off proceedings with a cocktail party on Thursday at the group’s headquarters, where he posed with his father,
Check out this beautiful and very sexy schoolgirl named Brooke B. Brooke is teasing in a very naughty college uniform. I don’t know if it meets the standard dress code requirements, but I don’t know any male students that would complain. Under her tiny white blouse, Brooke is wearing a sexy pink bra with a matching pair of panties underneath her short skirt. Of course, I also have to mention how great her long legs look in those grey hold up stockings.
Click here to see more of Brooke B at Only Tease. Only Tease has sexy women in all sorts of uniforms, but it seems that the college uniform photo sets and videos are always the most popular and top rated. It’s not hard to see why, especially when the babe wearing the uniform looks like Brooke B.
SPIN CYCLE: Britain’s annual Wool Week always sets out to quash misconceptions about the fabric, and this year they didn’t disappoint, unveiling an installation of stacked, colorful washing machines in London’s Covent Garden. Dubbed The Wool Care, the installation will be on show until Oct. 21, and is meant to demonstrate the fact that wool is washable, durable — and cool.
“We always thought this was the last frontier. A lot of people think you can’t throw wool in a washing machine, but you can, and when you wash wool, you’re not creating micro-plastics. Wool biodegrades naturally in the sea,” said Peter Ackroyd, chief operating officer for Campaign for Wool.
Hackett, Vivienne Westwood, Marks & Spencer and Adidas are among some of the retailers who took part in the launch earlier this week. “Vivienne Westwood has spread the message of wool extremely well, she talks about buy well, buy less, buy wool,” Ackroyd said.
Jeremy Hackett of the men’s wear brand Hackett unveiled the installation with his dog Muffin and his Aston Martin, which has bespoke wool interiors. Among the other retailers who are preaching the gospel of wool is the outdoor apparel brand Finisterre, which is changing the perception of wool as an “old-fashioned and stuffy” material.
An earthy majesty defines Sarah Burton’s work for Alexander McQueen. It’s raw, intimate and inspired by Britain’s rich pagan past.
For spring, Burton and her design staff visited several hallowed shrines of British paganism, including Silbury Hill and Avebury Stone Circle, sites where humans left indelible marks on nature, and where now, hundreds of years later, the two forces seem indelibly joined. She came away with a new take on her compelling, long-running heroine. “She’s always pagan, I suppose,” Burton said backstage, “rooted to the ground, rooted to the earth.” She is also typically self-sufficient, determined and powerful in her femininity, yet vulnerable, too, a concept that strikes a deep chord in our fractured world. Often, she projects an archetypal warrior goddess whose strength and gentleness manifest in unison, via, on one hand, strict tailoring, corsetry and harnesses, and on the other, gentle dresses with a look of ancient-world dishabille.
For spring, Burton focused on “a woman’s journey, the moments that she experiences in life, so birth, christening, sisterhood, motherhood, friendship. The idea of expressing feelings and being empowered by emotion and vulnerability.” All while being exquisitely turned out.
Burton is the reverse of the ready-to-wear designers who show during couture; she is
Lingerie Française, an organization that represents French lingerie brands, is hosting a lingerie loft in New York.
Open from Nov. 2 to 4, it will display pieces from brands including Aubade, Chantelle, Passionata, Empreinte, Antigel, Maison Lejaby, Simone Perele and Implicite. The loft is a way to highlight these brands and introduce them to the U.S. customer, who Ulyana Sukach, director of international development at Lingerie Française, said already enjoys French lingerie.
“This loft will let visitors experience these brands in an educational and engaging way,” said Ulyana Sukach, director of international development at Lingerie Française, who noted American consumers have an appreciation for French lingerie.
According to La Fédération de la Maille, de la Lingerie & du Balnéaire, France’s lingerie market was valued at 3.9 billion euros in 2016 and it’s grown by 7.8 percent since 2013. French corsetry exports in 2017 were 371.5 million euros, 26.3 million euros of which went to the U.S.
Located at 305 Bleecker Street, the loft will not sell any merchandise — visitors will be directed to retailers who carry these brands — while offering an extensive slate of talks and experiences. There will be workout sessions, workshops on how to find the right bra and talks on

While your nether regions aren’t on public display nearly as often as your perfectly groomed mug (we hope), it’s still imperative—for your health, and for your partner’s ego—that you keep everything down there clean and healthy. Because your junk spends most of the day in the dark, and because moisture so easily accumulates in this area, your balls and everything else are at greater risk for infection (not to mention nastiness).
Here are the best ways to keep your balls dry, clean, and fresh, and your man parts presentable—even if only for you.
First, develop a grooming regimen for your junk:
Washing: You’re remiss not to shower—did we really have to tell you that? Give everything a scrubdown with a nourishing, mild soap or body wash. “Wash the area daily, and after working out,” says New York-based dermatologist Anthony M. Rossi, M.D. “This helps prevent bacterial and fungal skin infections that can happen.” We recommend something like Jack Black All-Over Wash, which is a facial cleanser, shampoo and body wash in one.
Powders: Then, as you get dressed, sprinkle some moisture-wicking body powder into your drawers, and evenly distribute it around your business, even down there between the legs. Jack Black’s Dry Down Friction-Free Powder keeps your skin soft as it soaks up any sweat. It also prevents chafing throughout the day, and during workouts. (It also smells freaking great.)
Creams: As an alternative to powder, you can invest in a soothing cream, like the aptly named Fresh Balls Lotion for Men which is less cumbersome to apply than powder, and dries with a cooling tingle. It’s talc- and aluminum-free, so it keeps everything dry without putting any potentially harmful ingredients into your body. Rossi’s favorite topical creams have zinc oxide, which he says is “a great barrier paste that prevents chafing and irritation” by settling in the folds of the skin to block yeast and bacteria buildup. Try Mayron’s Goods Junk Stuff for that—it also doubles as a healing cream for existing chafing and irritation.
Manscaping: Lastly, keep things trim. Some guys like to remove all their hair, but that’s not necessary. Instead, just trim the area with an electric clipper, to minimize the amount of moisture that gets trapped by the hairs. If you choose to shave all the way down, Rossi warns, you run the risk of shaving over infected skin or using a blade that has accumulated bacteria. In either scenario, you can infect the hair follicle; folliculitis is painful, so it’s imperative to keep the area clean, and to only manscape with a fresh razor.
Equip yourself with the right underwear
You can’t go wrong with cotton. It’s the most breathable fabric, and if you’re taking the aforementioned preventative measures, you should already be less prone to any swampy buildu, since cotton easily absorbs and holds sweat. Rossi suggests finding a good cotton-polyester blend, since polyester helps migrate any moisture to the outside of the fabric, allowing it to evaporate. A brand like Saxx is ideal: Their underwear is made with comfy pima cotton along with stretchy spandex and polyester; plus, SAXX’s unique “Ballpark pouch” panels act like dividers for your junk and your legs, providing the perfect combo of breathability, form-fitting comfort, and architecture (read: room for your balls).
But even if you take preventative measures, you might still get sweaty during the day. For some guys, simply sitting for a few hours can cause things to get swampy. Solution? Pack an extra pair of underwear in your work bag. Sure, it seems excessive, but sitting in your own filth all day is akin to skipping a shower after a workout and letting everything fester—it’s a recipe for a fungal infection.
If you get jock itch:
Rossi suggests over-the-counter anti-fungal solutions like Terbinafine (laminal) creams, or Lotrimin. They should remedy the situation in a few days. (Many athlete’s foot creams are also effective against jock itch; they’re both fungal infections.)
“Of course, any rash that is not clearing up or improving should be seen by your dermatologist,” Rossi adds. “Not all rashes in the groin are jock itch. Some can be cancerous.” So, if things aren’t fixed quickly, discontinue the anti-fungal cream and talk to your doctor.
SOBERING UP: The Turbulent Thirties and its fashion — ranging from the influence of Hollywood films to the rise of suburbia — will be the focus of a new show called “Night and Day: 1930s Fashion & Photographs” at The Fashion and Textile Museum. The exhibition will open Friday and run until Jan. 20.
Split into different tableaux, the exhibition highlights the changing political and cultural landscape of the decade, and its impact on fashion. There will be a total of 100 looks on display, lent by Mark and Cleo Butterfield of C20 Vintage.
“Whilst carrying out the research and planning Night and Day, it became clear that escapism was a major theme that needed to be explored. While the decade is famous for its glamorous bias-cut evening gowns that showcased a woman’s curves and its magical musicals full of romance and glamour, these years were defined by a constant anxiety about the harsh economic reality and shifting social status,” said co-curator Teresa Collenette.
“Night & Day: 1930s Fashion and Photographs,” at the Fashion and Textile Museum, London, until Jan. 20.

To counter what he sees as the darkness of the times, Nicolas Andreas Taralis moved away from his habitual somber register, injecting his spring collection with lightness and color in a sculptural way.
Rectangular strips of technical fabric were sewn together to evoke parachutes in free fall, moving with the body in transparent strips on column and bustier dresses in white and pale yellow, scarlet and fuchsia; billowing as a pale yellow puff-ball skirt with suspenders, paired with a T-shirt that read “Heroes” — in reference to David Bowie.
Tailored pieces like a dark green nylon satin suit and a black cotton jacket were crafted from panels of fabric, leaving gashes in which the wind would rustle.
Laser-cut foliage from a military register created texture on a unisex black coat intended to evoke a shell that protects the body, a motif reprised elsewhere on a white tailored jacket, its lining showing through, and on T-shirts and shift dresses. Elsewhere, Taralis delivered a more overt political message with printed slogans like “surrender” and “disobey” on bright Japanese sports mesh vests and photo prints of protests on his jersey T-shirts, adding a touch of street to what was an interesting, quirky lineup.
David Mallett is bringing his signature brand of Parisian-chic hairdressing to New York.
Mallett, an Australian native whose taxidermy-filled eponymous salon in the Second Arrondissement is something of a fashion insider institution in Paris, is set to open a third location — his first in the U.S. and first outside Paris — on the top floor of Laure Hériard Dubreuil’s The Webster in SoHo, on Oct. 16.
The 1,600-square-foot space will operate as a full-service, eight-chair salon, with color, cutting, styling and treatment services overseen by Mallett himself and staffed by longtime employees of his Paris salons, including two hairdressers, two colorists and a client director. Mallett, who opened his second outpost at The Ritz Paris in 2016, will split his time between New York and Paris going forward.
The salon on the fifth floor of The Webster was designed by French architect Charles Zana to replicate the style of Mallett’s Paris salons, which are inspired by French-style craftsmanship. Lamps, furniture and other decor were custom-made for The Webster by François Pouenat, a fifth-generation French artisan metalworker. In a nod to his native Australia, Mallett partnered with Australia-based Dinosaur Designs’ Louise Olsen on accent pieces. Mallett purposefully to designed the New York space
I’d say there’s some very lucky gent on the other side of the phone, because as soon as she gets this phone call she puts on something a little more sexy. This Only Tease photo gallery, starts with Kayla Fox relaxing in an oversized dress shirt, her bra and a pair of cute panties. However, after the phone rings is when she slips into her silk chemise and puts on a pair of stockings.
Visit Only Tease to see more of Kayla Fox and all of the sexy outfits that she’s wearing. These photos come from one of her first appearances at Only Tease and since then the beautiful brunette has become a very familiar face. She’s appeared eleven times at the website, including a brand new photo set that was released just today.
Few things in this world are as comfy as a hoodie. Weekend staples like a sweatshirt and track pants are no longer just for couch potatoes. Smart pairings and accessories can dress up what was once a purely casual look.
The soft, zippered layer with throw-on ease even has its own built-in weather shield. It’s a go-to, but the wrong one can call to mind an unemployed gamer.
Thanks to renewed attention to casual clothes from the biggest brands in fashion, it’s not hard to find an upscale iteration, such as the Sunspel Men’s Cotton Loopback [$ 225; sunspel.com], worn here under a luxury overcoat like this feather-soft cashmere one from Ermenegildo Zegna [$ 4,695, zegna.com].
It’s a slam-dunk combo of unfussy comfort and effortless cool.

The line was half a block long, not an unusual occurrence at Gagosian Beverly Hills, but certainly one that hasn’t happened since its Oscar week opening featuring Damien Hirst in February. Wednesday night’s opening of “America Too,” the third collaboration between Takashi Murakami and Virgil Abloh, drew a small army of fans, most of them young and several of them famous.
Travis Scott, Kourtney Kardashian, Usher, Kid Cudi, Orlando Bloom and Luka Sabbat were spotted in the crowd, which was sizable inside, though nothing compared with the orderly throng outside. They were let in a handful at a time, making it possible for as many fans to take in the event as possible.
Many of the artworks themselves, in a variety of media, were also oversize, including the giant “Material Too,” a take on the American flag, that hung in the center of the North Gallery. It was probably also the biggest number of iPhones seen at an art opening, as young fans excitedly Instagrammed themselves in front of the colorful works, including Murakami’s iconic rainbow flower, onto which the signature arrows of Abloh’s Off-White label were overlaid, or “Arrows and Flower Neon Sign” and a rotating piece that blinked like a
The designer in the gender-fluid, handiwork-intensive collection explored the concept of the east interpreted through a western filter. In particular, he looked to the creations of an American carpet manufacturer from the Thirties “who copied Chinese rugs.”
The designer challenged himself in the handiwork-intensive, textured collection, working with a weird palette of hues including deep purple, pistachio and mint that was outside of his comfort zone. The show set — a dingy garage with industrial lights and a wet floor sprinkled with eucalyptus oil — was equally strange.
A glitched jacquard suit in a carpet motif had a “foggy” aspect to it. Elsewhere, an eye-catching mesh dress came needle-punched with yellow silk thread, playing on the idea of forcing organic fibers into synthetic fibers.
The showpiece was an elaborate black and silver sequined robe dress, produced by hand in a workshop in Shanghai, bearing the face of an imaginary avatar.
A matching shirt and pant in a liquid mesh bonded with suiting fabric to create a wet-look effect, which was at once structured and light with an iridescence, offered the most compelling and wearable spin on the appearance-versus-reality theme.
For Joel Embiid, his newly inked deal with Under Armour is going to be “bigger than just shoes.”
Turning aside other reported suitors including Puma and New Balance, the center for the Philadelphia 76ers instead opted for a five-year apparel and footwear endorsement deal with Under Armour. He had previously been sponsored by Adidas.
At Under Armour, Embiid joins Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, skier Lindsey Vonn, ballerina Misty Copeland and others. The terms of the deal were not disclosed but ESPN reported that the endorsement will make him the highest paid center in the NBA.
In a first-person account on Under Armour’s web site posted on Wednesday, Embiid wrote: “When I sat down with Under Armour, one of the first things we talked about was how this can be bigger than just shoes, bigger than just basketball. I want to help change people’s lives.
“Basketball has given me everything, but it has to be bigger than basketball. That was the first thing that I said to Under Armour, and they were behind it 100 percent. This isn’t about a shoe deal. I mean, listen…I’m gonna make sure they design some shoes as pretty as I am. Don’t

HOMEGROWN ENVELOPE OPENERS: With Fashion Group International’s “Night of Stars” just a few weeks away, winners are lining up their presenters, and several are keeping things local.
Superstar honoree Vera Wang is going with her nearest and dearest, the one-two punch of Donna Karan and Calvin Klein. Guests at the Oct. 25 event at Cipriani’s Wall Street will find the usual galaxy of fashion designers in the crowd.
Fashion Star winner Olivier Rousteing is still mulling over his choices. That’s also the case with Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, the creative team behind Opening Ceremony and Kenzo. Another Fashion winner, Anna Sui, will have her favorite designer, Marc Jacobs, do the honors at the podium.
Luxury Lifestyle winner Moncler needs more time to ruminate. That is not the case with Beauty Star honoree Frederic Malle, who has recruited Barneys New York’s Daniella Vitale as her presenter.
While Humanitarian Award winner Barbara Bradley Baekgaard for Vera Bradley and Design Technology victor Billie Whitehouse for Wearable X are in the need-more-time category, Sustainability award winner Maria Cornejo will pick up her prize from “Avengers” actor and fellow environmentalist Mark Ruffalo.
Media Award winner Vanessa Friedman of The New York Times has lined up The Gray Lady’s big
Understated luxury is the code word for Dusan Paunovic’s collection, constructed from high-end fabrics that are the building blocks for his cathedral of minimalism. For spring, the Serbian-born designer worked in a muted color palette of neutrals, working a raw-edged beige and cream herringbone linen, for example, into an elegant yet relaxed spaghetti-strap dress.
Superlight cashmere and silk knits, wide-legged linen culottes and Japanese hand-pressed lamé skirts, all staples in the Dušan vocabulary, were the backbone of the lineup. The outerwear was also strong, as demonstrated with a camel Loro Piana water-repellent cashmere coat with lining and contrasting Mao collar in white neoprene.
His patchworks of supersoft silk scarf prints in a palette of navy, forest green and dusty pink, used on flowing pants and sleeveless tops with a simple tie at the back of the neck, worked a treat.
SHANGHAI–Bridal doyenne Vera Wang is expanding her universe again, linking up this time with Hong Kong-headquartered Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group to produce a fine jewelry collection to cater to the modern Chinese bride.
“Vera Wang Love” will debut on Oct. 19 in Chow Tai Fook Shanghai stores before expanding to other key cities including Beijing, Chengdu, and Hong Kong. It builds on top of her existing offerings in the space via “Simply Vera Vera Wang” jewelry, as well as deals for homeware, and her core ready-to-wear and gowns business.
The collection will span 18K gold and platinum engagement rings, as well as wedding bands and fine fashion jewelry, with a starting price point of about $ 400.
Traditionally speaking, gold and jade usually adorn brides in China but the two sides said couples in greater numbers are starting to “incorporate diamond jewelry into traditional engagements.”
Wang has found a powerful partner in Chow Tai Fook, one of the world’s largest jewelers with nearing 3,000 points of sale across China. The group’s other brands include Chow Tai Fook T Mark, Hearts On Fire, Monologue, and SOINLOVE.
Vera Wang counts three boutiques in Mainland China–in Beijing, Shanghai, and Chengdu.

We’ve all had a pimple—or a colony of them—every one as unwelcome as the last. Sometimes they’re fleeting, a result of poor post-gym hygiene, while other breakouts are chronic, a result of genetics or stress.
Regardless of the origins, or if you’re already panicking about the appearance of the next ones, you can make an effort to maximize your skin health. But, with so many mixed messages it’s hard to know what works and doesn’t, including the most effective products for warding off breakouts.
That’s why we sourced unbiased experts—a pool of board-certified dermatologist, actually—and asked them for the best products that round out an anti-acne regimen, be they preventative, reactive, or both. Here’s the regimen you should put into practice immediately. You’ll notice long-standing, skin-clearing effects some 2-3 months down the line—as well as far fewer breakouts and remnants along the way.
Start with the right cleanser—and cleanse 2x per day
Salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and benzoyl peroxide: These are three ingredients you should memorize. Each one is effective at preventing and minimizing breakouts.
Salicylic acid and glycolic acid work to dissolve dead cells that might clog pores.
“And a benzoyl peroxide 2-5% wash is a great anti-acne evening cleanser (such as PanOxyl),” she adds, since it fights the bacteria that take residence in your pores during the day.
The lower grades, around 2%, are good for your face, and the higher grades, nearing 5%, are good for your body.
Kassie Gaitz, M.D., suggests benzoyl-peroxide cleansers in particular to her patients who suffer from acne breakouts on the back, chest, and shoulders.
You might hear about benzoyl peroxide topical creams that can be worn overnight. Speak with your dermatologist about whether or not this is a good route for you. They tend to be high grades that can dry out your skin, plus they bleach your towels and pillowcases, which can make it an expensive habit.
There’s another overnight solution anyway, one that nearly every single dermatologist recommends; we’ll get to that later down the list.
Only use scrubs preventatively
Marisa Garshick, M.D., warns that scrubs will only aggravate acne. They should instead be used cautiously on skin that’s already clear—preventatively, that is—and you should rely on the other products on this list to minimize existing breakouts.
Use a non-comedogenic moisturizer
If you are prone to acne, then you might want to avoid oil-based moisturizers, says Jennifer S. Kitchin, M.D. They are comedogenic, meaning they clog your pores and lead to one-off pimples or bigger breakouts. Instead, stick with oil-free, non-comedogenic products (look for that term), like Olay Complete Lotion All Day Moisturizer With SPF 15.
Use retinol products overnight
Retinol is the miracle cream. It’s universally accepted as the best defense against signs of aging, and an essential pillar of a minimalist skincare regimen. It’s also going to be your key defense against acne, since it minimizes pores, balances the skin, and even reduces deep acne scars that otherwise take months to get rid of. It’s important to use them overnight for a couple reasons: 1.) They work with the body’s regenerative cycle to expedite healing and improve your skin. 2.) They make you sensitive to light and are deactivated by UV exposure. (So you need to cleanse thoroughly and use an SPF–packed product the next morning.
Kimberly Jerden, M.D., recommends speaking with your dermatologist first and foremost, to decide if a prescription-grade retinoid is best for you. That being said, “aside from my favorite prescription retinoids, I am picky about buying over the counter retinoids because many aren’t strong enough or not proven to convert,” she says.
But there is one she endorses wholeheartedly: PCA Intensive Clarity Treatment 0.5% Pure Retinol.
Do a mask once per week
An at-home face mask feels incredible, and that’s because it’s doing good to your skin: It absorbs all the grease and gunk that accumulates in your pores—deep from within the pores, that is—and gives you a very clean canvas from which to start your week. Dhaval Bhanusali, M.D., warns against doing masks too often though.
“Masks are strong. They often have salicylic acid, which, given the occlusion of the mask, really helps get the acid into the oil glands of the skin,” he says. “This then decreases oil production.”
In a bad way, since your skin’s oil is what keeps it hydrated. It’s merely the excess oil you want to eradicate. So, limit yourself to once a week on deep-cleaning masks in order to avoid excessive drying.
However, you can’t really overdo the ultra-hydrating masks, since they have a different and pro-nourishment objective.) Precede a cleansing mask with an actual cleanse, follow it with a rinse, then a moisturizer (or a retinol if it’s the end of the day). Have a look at our favorite masks, as well as the favorites of our dermatologists.

JE NE SAIS QUOI: For its new media campaign, 24 Sèvres, the global luxury web site owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, is making fun of the usual stereotypes associated with the Parisienne.
Launching today and photographed by Cecy Young, the campaign features four women posing as counter-examples of Parisian clichés in what the online retailer is touting as a refreshing approach to idealized French style, known for its understated and effortless approach to fashion.
The tone is tongue-in-cheek: French model and actress Audrey Marnay is seen wearing a bright yellow Loewe coat on a visual stating “The Parisienne Only Wears Black,” while Nineties icon Georgina Grenville lifts her arms up in a fuzzy Dries Van Noten fake fur coat on the image headlined “The Parisienne Never Shaves.”
Since opening in 2017 as the online arm of Left Bank department store Le Bon Marché, 24 Sèvres has favored a distinctly Parisian point of view in its selection of brands.
“With this campaign, we wanted to highlight our Parisian roots, but also poke a little fun at them, making sure to address both our local consumers and women worldwide,” said Pauline Dollé-Labbé, marketing director at 24 Sèvres.
Louise Follain stars in the new 24 Sèvres
Jean and Judith Touitou took another step this season and moved outside the label’s intimate Rue Madame headquarters to show their coed lineup. They headed to a cavernous garage, emptied of cars and outfitted with roving spotlights that announced the start of the show.
The first look set the upbeat, rockabilly tone. Down the concrete car ramp came a sleek, jeans pants-and-shirt ensemble in dark blue with white stitching, a charming Elvis coiffe and pointy white boots, keys jangling from the belt. The bright blue bandana tightly wrapped around the model’s neck allowed a peek of the bright yellow T-shirt underneath.
It’s increasingly a question of survival-of-the-fittest in apparel these days and, not one to be left behind, the label is hankering after growth.
With their spring collection, the couple nudged their specific breed of easy and wearable elegance into younger territory, with their offer of jeans, colorful sweaters, smart outerwear and belt bags stamped with an A, a P or a C.
Dresses were cut sensibly, continuing in the same register as last season — non fussy, elegant and #metoo age-appropriate. These included a checked trenchcoat dress and several prairie dresses. The label’s emphasis on outerwear was expanded to include brighter colors, and
CRUZ FOR CRUISE: Chanel has unveiled its first advertisements starring Penélope Cruz, who joins the likes of Margot Robbie and Kristen Stewart as the latest star to be lensed for a campaign by Karl Lagerfeld.
The black-and-white images show the Oscar-winning actress dressed in items from the label’s nautical-themed cruise collection, shown in May in front of a 330-foot-long replica ocean liner constructed in the middle of the Grand Palais in Paris.
Cruz brings a sensual warmth to the line’s tweed jackets and striped knits. In one image, she wears a checked tweed beret and a sweater emblazoned with La Pausa, the name of the villa in the South of France built by founder Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in the Thirties, which Lagerfeld used to christen his spectacular boat.
“It’s such an iconic brand and Karl is a genius, and I’ve been admiring everything he’s done since I was a little girl, so it’s such a pleasure working with him. He’s like the king of fashion and we had a really, really interesting photo shoot, so to be in front of his camera is an adventure,” Cruz told WWD in July.

Sammie seemed like such a sweet and innocent girl until I saw her in this skin tight PVC minidress. Now, it looks like she’s about to head-off to one of those kinky fetish clubs downtown. I have to admit that it’s one very amazing look Sammie. I love how the dress hugs to her curves and really is skin tight.
Underneath her dress, Sammie is wearing a pair of grey colored stockings. When she pulls up her dress we get a peek at her black thong. Soon, we get a lot more than just a peek when she takes off the dress completely.
You can see a lot more of Sammie at Only Tease. There you can see her in all sorts of outfits like naughty uniforms and even a sexy secretary outfit. However, what I really like about Sammie is the sexy underwear that she’s always picking out for her photo shoots.
Designer and Indian celebrity favorite Sabyasachi Mukherjee has dipped into cosmetics with beauty giant L’Oreal Paris, working with actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for the 21-piece collection, which is now available for sale online.
While the makeup is positioned as a festive collection, Sabyasachi wrote when debuting the line on Instagram late on Monday evening that he wanted the range to feel classic and simple.
“For me, classic is iconic, because classic is unforgettable,” the designer said. “The whole world is moving towards a state of effective simplicity where classic will lead the way. Makeup will be more about a stronger, lasting identity. A winged black liner with a bold red mouth offset with a simple saree and wind-swept hair is perhaps an iconic Indian beauty look.”

The campaign with Rai Bachchan was shot on July 15 at the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Sabyasachi also shared how the look for the look for the packaging came together — inspired by a fountain pen that one of his team was using.
“It is sometimes funny how things just come together. We were all in deep discussion about the new packaging and nothing was quite working out. I wanted something
Anaïs Mak captured the coming-of-age vibe she was after. Tucked into plush sofas ringing the runway, guests waited under the dimmed red lights of the club’s low ceilings, the carpet’s skull-and-flower pattern barely discernible.
But when the lights snapped on and the sentimental saxophone riff streamed out — George Michael’s “Careless Whisper,” what else? — the audience was thrust into her bedroom, or wherever she had a full-length mirror, some privacy and a closet stuffed with possibilities.
“I think the girl is exploring maturing,” said Mak, the Hong Kong-born and -based designer whose label is called Anaïs Jourden. “You see a slight ‘Lolita’ influence in the collection,” she added.
The models wore mostly dresses, occasionally with a trail of ruffles, often in a bias cut and strapless at times — one had lacing between the breasts. Wearing stiletto Barbie heels — patent leather with a puff of fake fur, no straps to secure an ankle — some teetered, while others strutted confidently, hair tied up in a tussled ponytail.
“We used to rely heavily on textures and volume,” said Mak, noting the aim was ease and fluidity this time. Speaking before the show, she pointed to a pencil-shaped dress made from cotton treated for
LONDON — Halloween may be three weeks away, but Bally is already dreaming of skeletons, flies and skulls, part of its new collaboration with Swizz Beatz, and the London-based spray paint artist known as Shok-1.
Bally will reveal the capsule accessories collection on Wednesday during a flash, two-day visit to Tokyo where Shok-1 will also unveil a mural on the side of Park Building in Shibuya and host a pop-up gallery at the brand’s Ginza flagship, its largest store at 8,640 square feet.
This is the latest collaboration between Bally and Kasseem Dean, the music producer known as Swizz Beatz, who works with the Swiss brand to find talent for one-off collections.
This latest offer includes totes, clutches, high-tops and hoodies with Shok-1’s delicate X-ray paintings of flies, skeleton torsos and bony hands that form one of music’s favorite gestures, a fist with the pinkie and index fingers extended.
A backpack from the new Bally x Swizz Beatz x Shok-1 collaboration.
Frédéric de Narp, Bally’s chief executive officer, said the brand and Swizz Beatz were both eager to work with Shok-1, a British artist who began his career as a chemist and who is now known for his graceful, large-scale murals, some of which are

Your skincare regimen doesn’t need to comprise an expensive rotation of exfoliators, masks, serums, tonics, and night creams. You do, however, need to meet the baseline requirements of cleansing and moisturizing.
Such a regimen will help prevent aging, acne, and improve the overall look and feel of your skin.
So, what’s the minimum amount of products you can use to reap these benefits without breaking the bank and crowding your sink ledge? We ran the same question by some board-certified dermatologists. Here are the three key things that nearly every one of them suggested.
1. In the morning, use a moisturizer with broad-spectrum SPF 30+
It’s no surprise you need to moisturize in the morning after cleansing. It rehydrates the skin after all its natural oils wash away with the excess grime, in addition to nourishing it with vitamins and antioxidants. A moisturizer also creates a defensive layer atop the skin to shield it from toxins.
It’s also no surprise you need an SPF—one that defends against both categories of ultraviolet rays (skin-aging UVA rays, as well as sunburn- and cancer-causing UVB rays). The higher the SPF, the mightier the defense, though it’s not a proportionate scale (SPF 30 doesn’t necessarily cover you twice as effectively as SPF 15, though it does cover you significantly more). Either way, most doctors agreed that you need an SPF 30 (or greater) in your regimen. That’s easily folded into the moisturizing step by getting an SPF-packed moisturizer. So long as it’s one that is SPF 30+ and offers broad-spectrum coverage.
“The sunblock should have a physical block such as titanium or zinc,” adds Dr. Jennifer S. Kitchin. “It reflects the UV rays off your skin, and protects you from the long-term effects of photo-aging, such as skin cancer, wrinkles, and brown spots.”
2. Cleanse twice a day
Before you apply moisturizer, you need to cleanse—a minimum of twice daily. Do this any time after sleeping, sweating excessively, and before bed. This flushes away the sweat, grime, toxins, and excess oil that make your face shiny, greasy, and prone to pimples (since all those bad things can clog your pores). Every dermatologist you will ever encounter will repeat all of this, as did the dozen-plus experts we spoke with. Some specified the most optimal cleansers for different needs, however:
Dr. Holly Hanson says if you have sensitive skin (as in, easily irritable), pick a gentle cleanser like Neutrogena’s which won’t disrupt your skin’s pH levels and will still allow you to wash twice daily without punishment.
3. Use a retinol product at bedtime
While this may seem like an extraneous step, it’s the most agreed-upon necessity from dermos. You can combine your bedtime moisturizer with retinol in order to reverse fine lines, acne, and sunspots on your skin. For real, it actually reverses those things (and makes many go away) when you use it for 3+ months and continue to use it. Retinol is a vitamin A-derived product that comes in prescription grade doses, or in smaller amounts over the counter (and blended into night creams). By applying before bed, you maximize its powers, because it works in tandem with your body’s regenerative process.
Talk to your doctor about the best retinol approach for your specific needs, especially so you can avoid inverse effects. (Mainly: added sensitivity to sunlight, hence the increased importance of SPF.)
“Differin’s retinol gel would be my pick,” says Shah, adding that it was a prescription product that only recently became available over the counter. But talk to your dermatologist first before picking a retinol.

NEW FACE AT LANVIN?: Could Lanvin, said to be searching for new designer, have its eye on a hidden talent? According to sources, the French house is in talks with Bruno Sialelli, who recently exited Loewe, where he was head of men’s wear. The likelihood of the house and the designer securing an agreement could not immediately be learned. Lanvin could not immediately be reached for comment.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Sialelli had been at Loewe since March 2016. Before that, he held senior design roles in women’s wear at Paco Rabanne, Acne Studios and Balenciaga. He is a fashion graduate of Studio Berçot in Paris.
Finding a new design and management leadership has been job number one for Fosun International, which acquired the French luxury house in February.
WWD was the first to report in July that Lanvin had settled on Jean-Philippe Hecquet to become its next chief executive officer. Previously, he was head of fast-growing French fashion chain Sandro since 2014, and boasts more than 14 years of experience in various roles at LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
In March, Lanvin parted ways with creative director Olivier Lapidus and general manager Nicolas Druz, sparking speculation about who might take on the daunting
Should fashion be political?
It’s a question that has consumed editors in a week dominated by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing into sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. For better or for worse, in the era of #MeToo, a hemline is no longer just a hemline.
While some designers have shrugged off feminist readings of their collections, and others appeared to deliberately court controversy, Nicolas Ghesquière embraced the moment with his lineup of retro-futuristic clothes, shown in a maze of neon-lit tunnels set up in the courtyard of the Louvre Museum after dark.
“This is not a narrative collection. This is about my obsession to empower women,” he said after the show. “There were so many discussions the last months about the place of women, and I thought that this is really an intuition to want to give power when you are a designer.”
He did that by tapping into a few of his other obsessions: sci-fi imagery and exaggerated volumes. Dominican model Ambar Cristal Zarzuela, making her Paris debut, opened the show in an oversized blouson with mille feuille sleeves featuring photo prints of candy-colored artificial landscapes.
The sleeves were the connective tissue between his eclectic band of intergalactic explorers.
LONDON — The modeling industry has been under the microscope more than ever this past year as a result of the rise of the #MeToo movement, allegations against leading photographers about sexual harassment and this week’s Talent Protections Act being signed into law in California — according to which, talent agencies need to provide educational materials on sexual harassment prevention, retaliation, and reporting resources to their clients.
Aware of the pressing need for change in the industry, Tala Davies and Esther Kinnear-Derungs founded agency Linden Staub. They’ve been attempting to rewrite the rules of model management for three years, even before the #MeToo movement took hold.
They only represent models as the “mother agency,” which means they retain control over the strategy and big decisions around the models’ career trajectories. They have also implemented a next-day payment policy for the talent on their books, and attempt to educate them about the industry.
They’ve already helped create breakthrough personalities, including Maxim Magnus, the transgender model who has been a champion for LGBTQ rights and has been featured in an array of high-profile campaigns from Gucci to Stella McCartney and Tom Ford.

FATHER TO SON: Arje Griegst forged a unique path as a jeweler and sculptor, since founding his eponymous label in the Sixties, and now a whole new generation has the chance to own — and wear — his work.
Two years after his father’s death, Noam Griegst is setting out to honor his legacy and bring pieces from his archive alive. They’re currently on display — and for sale — outside Copenhagen for the first time at Dover Street Market in London. The store is debuting 10 reissued designs by the late jeweler during the Frieze Art Fair, which runs until Sunday.
Griegst’s commitment to craftsmanship was unrivaled: He made his first piece of cutlery at age 10, received a De Beers Prize at 19 and went on to create a world of his own inside his Copenhagen studio, designing sculpted pieces in gold and precious stones and often receiving commissions from the Danish Royal Family.
“A single ring could take two years to make. He would cast it in wax, again and again, until it was perfected, and in the meantime we were all starving at home and my mum would go completely crazy,” Noam said in an interview. “I’ve been working
Ukrainian designer Anton Belinskiy’s first fashion show had religious airs. Incense burned on the steps inside the Palais de Tokyo, while some models sported wimples.
Belinskiy explored the concept of belief, whether religious or just as a way of giving meaning to life. He relied on the imagery of the Orthodox Church, in reference to his mother’s faith and his own trips to the local church in Kiev. Religious nods were given a pop-culture spin: tiny icons were printed on simple cotton T-shirts, while a rainbow-hued circular icon was depicted on a pink beaded crop top.
Models, both male and female, carried big sports bags. “When people retreat into religion, they pack up all their belongings and disappear,” explained the designer, who founded his brand in 2009. Film stills from “Adam and Eve” were printed on leggings, skirts and trousers. Some models wore seashell necklaces, other carried ceramic donation baskets.
The show was fast-paced and youthful, but the looks were a bit all over the place. An orange shiny jumpsuit was followed by a denim leotard worn with colorful leggings, then a Hawaiian shirt, finally a black deconstructed bustier dress. Despite this, the whole offering was energetic and exciting. The finalist for the
PRACTICALLY SPEAKING: As any politician can attest, setting the stage is essential to an public appearance. While First Lady Melania Trump is once removed in terms of being an elected official, she made today’s visit to Cairo – the finale of a four African nation tour, a cinematic one with a visit to the Pyramids in Ginzi.
Her arrival in Egypt began with some of the ingredients of the standard airport meet-and-greet: Schoolchildren, her fellow First Lady Entissar al-Sisi and a red carpet. But what was the third of four diplomatic entrances this week bordered on silent, according to a press pool. No music played and “very tough security” kept a close eye. In addition, police manned rooftops as the motorcade made its way through the city streets. Although work weeks can reel into Cairo as many as 25 million people, traffic was not an issue, partially due to Saturday being a holiday, the pool said. Media types were advised to leave their electronic devices behind, when the caravan stopped at the presidential palace. There, Trump and Egypt President Abdul Fattah el-Sisi met behind closed doors for under an hour.
Today’s activities included paying a visit to officials at the U.S. Embassy

I’M GOING ON A SAFARI: Thousands of miles away from the swarm of anticipation for a final vote and what some might describe as beastly debate over the Senate vote for Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, First Lady Melania Trump carried on with her weeklong goodwill mission in Kenya on Friday. The action-packed day included a visit to an elephant orphanage, an hourlong safari, tea with First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and a Sarakasi dance performance at Kenya’s National Theatre.
For a morning visit to Nairobi National Park, Trump dressed the part in a Ralph Lauren white button-down shirt, khaki colored pants and boots. Her white shirt remained “pristine,” during the 15-minute elephant feeding on red clay, the pool reporter noted.
After helping to feed orphaned elephants protected by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the First Lady added a white pith helmet to her ensemble before setting off to see giraffes, rhinos, hippos, zebras and other creatures on safari. Aside from the earth tones she has favored during her four-nation African trip, she also has varied her assortment of label choices beyond the European designer ones that many associate her with. This afternoon’s dance performance called for a quick wardrobe change —
Canadian designer Vejas Kruszewski, who won the LVMH Prix Spécial prize in 2016, chose to put his namesake brand on hold to focus on a new project. Now in its second season, Pihakapi, a brand developed in partnership with Italian leather manufacturer Pellemoda, blends high-quality leather with the 21-year-old-designer’s radical vision.
“Because the brand is leather-focused, I like to build the collection around the outerwear,” said Kruszewski at the presentation of his spring collection (the first offering was shown during men’s fashion week, Pihakapi being a unisex brand.)
A black leather trenchcoat featured details from this season’s key inspirations: mini leather horns recalling the anatomy of the stag beetle on the sleeves and a flame shaped cowboy collar. The same details were reworked on denim and jersey, as well as on a side-slit black slipdress, a welcome update to the wardrobe staple.
“I was really interested in reworking Western wear,” said the designer, gesturing to a white linen skirt with a black leather holster detail. He also created a pair of “refined chaps,” playing on the dichotomy between leather and fabric. The chocolate-colored leather added texture and serious flair to a pair of well-cut black trousers. Throwing in a couple of Grecian draped
In anticipation of the H&M x Moschino collection that will be in stores and online on Nov. 8, the companies have revealed their campaign photographed by Steven Meisel.
The images are inspired from a “1950 haute couture show.”
Styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, the campaign features models Gigi Hadid, Vittoria Ceretti, Rianne Von Rompaey, Stella Maxwell, Soo Joo Park, Imaan Hammam, Yasmin Wijnaldum, Oumie, Valentina Sampaio and Leyna Bloom. The campaign is called Moschino [tv] H&M.
Jeremy Scott, creative director of Moschino, who is collaborating with H&M, revealed their collaboration last April at Moschino and Scott’s annual Coachella party.
The collaboration is expected to revive certain archival pieces from Scott’s own collections, as well as those of the label’s founder, Franco Moschino. With an emphasis on playfulness and humor, the collaboration also comprises a full range of accessories.
Moschino follows in the footsteps of other successful H&M collaborations, including Karl Lagerfeld, Balmain, Marni, Kenzo, Versace and Erdem.

There are plenty of vitamin face serums populating the skincare market. But do any of them work?
Here’s why: Harmful particles in the air called free radicals do things like rust metal, turn apples brown, and cause skin to wrinkle and sag. You can prevent skin cells from breaking down by neutralizing free radicals with antioxidants that penetrate your skin’s protective outer barrier.
Most antioxidants on the market aren’t potent enough to protect skin or reverse damage. However, L-ascorbic acid, the active form of vitamin C, can. It’s been shown both to have sun-protective ability and to fix sun damage. Vitamin C also reverses fine wrinkles by rebuilding and realigning collagen. Apply serum in the morning for added sun protection during the day (though it doesn’t take the place of sunblock). It tends to be expensive—upwards of $ 100—but you need only a few drops a day to see results.
Gerald Imber, M.D., is a world-renowned plastic surgeon with more than 40 years of medical experience, and is the director of Youth Corridor Clinic in New York City.

FASHION FOCUS: Thylane Blondeau couldn’t find that perfect sweatshirt, so she decided to design her own. And that led to the 17-year-old French model and actress — a L’Oréal Paris brand ambassador — to conceive a full urban clothing line under the brand Heaven May (after her middle name), WWD has learned.
Blondeau’s followers — she has 2.4 million on Instagram alone — will be able to rock the look sold on her own site, heavenmay.com, starting Oct. 11.
“I have a lot of fans, and they’re always like: ‘Where did you buy this? Where did you find this?’” she said. “And I was like, everything they like I am going to do it for them and for me.
“I wanted to do my own brand, my own thing,” she continued. “I love clothes.”
Her first sweatshirt was black, with her label’s logo on the back. “Then I did pants, and after had to do socks and shoes — everything,” explained Blondeau.
Comfort was key. One sweatshirt has a hood that can be zipped up over the wearer’s head. “So I can hide my face — you know, when you are sleeping on the plane,” said Blondeau, who has been working with Paris-based designers, sending
The collection, presented in a salon at the Ritz Paris, was strangely wrinkled. Not to worry — it was all part of Inès de la Fressange’s vision of Parisian chic. “People are scared of linen and see it as a difficult fabric,” said the designer. “But I wanted to show that things needn’t be perfectly ironed. It gives the feeling that you’re still on holiday.”
Nevertheless the effect was scruffy, and diverted the attention from the stronger points of the collection. There was a pair of “new denim” straight leg trousers in dark blue linen, created in reaction to the Parisian heat wave; a cowboy style red shirt — “because you can look Parisian wearing a shirt from Texas” — and an elegant two-piece beige checked suit, that de la Fressange herself was wearing.
Masculine-inspired tailoring was as efficient as always, but the designer seemed tired of churning out the same old “Parisienne” ideal. “People always think that chic has to be conventional, when there isn’t necessarily a link between the two things,” she said. “I’m bored with conventionalism.”
In reaction to that, the collection went full Seventies, with colorful printed silk shirts and flared trousers. The whole offering seemed to miss the
The premium denim resurgence continues in Los Angeles. Samuel Ku, who was president and creative director of AG Jeans for a decade, is launching a new denim an essentials line called CQY.
With CQY, pronounced “coy,” Ku envisioned clothes built to last – with clean and modern silhouettes balanced by a deep respect for the rich heritage of denim. Using Japanese selvage denims produced by Kaihara, and jersey knitted by the finest mills in Japan and Los Angeles, CQY’s collection will consist of minimal wardrobe essentials – a handful jean styles, a pair of khakis, a denim jacket and shirt, and a handful of cotton tops for both women and men.
The CQY campaign was styled by Samantha Traina and features Louise Follain.
Denim runs in Ku’s blood; he is the son of Yul Ku, one of the founders of AG (Adriano Goldschmied) denim), and while he was at AG, he increased the business fourfold.
Launching for spring 2019 in stores such as Ron Herman, American Rag, Guild and Elyse Walker in January, CQY will also soft launch online with a campaign styled by Samantha Traina and featuring Louise Follain (www.cqydenim.com).

Diane von Furstenberg has decided to cease production and use of fur in all upcoming collections.
Concerned about the ethical and environmental impact of using farmed fur in fashion collections, and responding to the consumer’s desire for ethical fashion, DVF has partnered with the Humane Society of the United States and PETA to end the exploitation of animal fur in fashion
“It’s time for us to make this change and accept responsibility to ensure that we don’t promote killing animals for the sake of fashion,” said Sandra Campos, chief executive officer of DVF. “We are committed to supporting the shift to a more ethical and sustainable fashion industry by providing the consumer with innovative and sophisticated alternatives. Beginning with 2019, DVF will not incorporate the use of exotic skins, mohair, angora or fur.”
Von Furstenberg added, “I am so excited that technology has provided us a way to feel as glamorous with faux fur.”
Less than 15 percent of DVF’s fall collections since fall 2015 have included fur, angora and skin. DVF will continue to use ethically sourced shearling given the byproduct nature of this material.
DVF is working with the Council of Fashion Designers of America on a sustainability roadmap, and also focusing on innovative
A campaign video filmed in Hollywood and a tacky karaoke bar on the outskirts of Tokyo served as the perfect backdrop for this fun, crafty collection, with the models sped up and slowed down.
The signature inventiveness of Junichi Abe, an experienced patternmaker, was in fine form with offbeat touches like an accumulation of fabric textures on a skirt, the haphazard embroidery on lace collars of sweaters, and lines of tape used to join layers to garments — including a red tulle layer on a black T-shirt — or rework volumes, giving a DIY spin.
A series of triple-layered hi-tech anoraks mixing colors and materials to create depth were terrific. More cute in mood were the colored marled knits with contrast lace accents.
The designer also revisited traditional checks in polyester on neo-geek shirts, with oversized shapes used throughout the collection.
PARIS – Lacoste has named Louise Trotter as creative director.
The former Joseph designer succeeds Felipe Oliveira Baptista, who parted ways with the French heritage sportswear brand in May. Trotter, the first female creative director at the brand, will present her first collection during Paris Fashion Week in February, Lacoste said.
“We are very happy to welcome Louise. Her visionary approach on lines and materials, as well as her expertise in creating highly technical pieces, will be real assets to strengthen the positioning of our collections,” said Lacoste chief excutive officer Thierry Guibert, who wants to refocus the brand on its sports roots.
“I am delighted to join this French brand with such a unique heritage. For 85 years, the modernity of the Lacoste style has resided in this singular fusion of sport and fashion. I am proud to contribute to the writing of a new chapter in its history,” said Trotter.
The designer joined Joseph in 2009 from the British high street label Jigsaw, where she also held the title of creative director. Before Jigsaw, she served as senior vice president, creative director of H Hilfiger. She was previously vice president of product design and development for women’s merchandise at Gap brand.

If you’ve been nostalgic for some vintage style from back in the day, New Era has some great news for you. New Era and Nautica have collaborated on a limited edition line of hats made from deconstructed vintage Nautica jackets.
The hats have unique features taken from classic Nautica jackets, including patches, zippers, pockets, and labels, giving each set an authentic, vintage look. The three main styles include the New Era X Nautica Hydro Race Collection, New Era X Nautica Scuba Collection, and the New Era X Nautica Color Block Collection.
Here’s a look at the New Era X Nautica collection:

WINDOW SHOPPING: London’s Serpentine Sackler Gallery will present its first fashion-focused exhibition, “Passer-by,” which opens this week and runs until Jan. 6. Produced by Atelier E.B, the creative company set up by fashion designer Beca Lipscombe and artist Lucy McKenzie, the exhibition focuses on the future of retail display.
The gallery has been sectioned into three distinct spaces with a focus on the mannequin as the central theme. There is a bespoke showroom housing Atelier E.B’s latest collection, alongside a display of photography and historical materials and a series of works by contemporary artists.
This series spotlights the work of more than 30 artists including Tauba Auerbach, Calum Stirling and Elizabeth Radcliffe encompassing fashion, sculpture, commercial design and film displayed to look like a retail emporium.
The exhibition explores the relationship between window dressing in the digital age and mannequins from Adel Rootstein, the famed mannequin-maker. Atelier E.B has also invited these artists to visualize and create modern display fixtures.
Atelier E.B’s previous collections — as well as its new collection — are showcased as part of the exhibition, with pieces hung in windows and dressing rooms and customers encouraged to try on and order items.
Johannes Boehl Cronau showed his spring collection on the ground floor of Lafayette Anticipations, where models mingled on a floor strewn with pink slips of paper, wearing opened-toed mules. He continued to expose midriffs, using thinly knit bra tops this time, which he paired with cycling shorts in the same material.
The designer has a sharp focus, training his efforts on a select assortment of silhouettes that emphasize his eye for detail; he said he hoped the collection would mark a “really good start for what we’re trying to do.”
Drawing influences from carpentry from his childhood in Germany, he made a luxurious version of a tool belt, one in shiny black leather, another one in gray, which he used to complete an all-gray look. The trousers were both refined and easy, with two short zippers running vertically on the front, matched with a knit bra top.
Black nylon trousers with zips and a few flaps turned out to be an opened-up boiler suit, which was worn with a lightly knit tank top. He used the same knit for an elongated dress that had loops hanging off of the bottom, like mini arm straps.
He slightly enlarged fisherman’s hats, which came in somber hues
MCM has partnered with Nordstrom on pop-up shops to house an exclusive capsule collection.
Nordstrom vice president of creative projects Olivia Kim worked with the MCM team to delve through its archives and unearth retro styles for the project. Merchandise will become available for sale on Oct. 5 in select Nordstrom stores as well as online.
In addition to handbags and accessories, the MCM pop-ups will also feature hats by New Era, Everlast boxing gloves, Wilson basketballs and Champion sweaters — all utilizing MCM’s monogram material. The pop-up spaces, operated through the Pop-in@Nordstrom program, will remain open through Nov 11.
“I have been a longtime fan of MCM and it was an incredible experience to travel to Korea last year to visit the archives and have the opportunity to reimagine some of their most iconic styles through our creative lens,” Kim said. “Our goal is always to provide newness for our customers and continue to fuel their sense of discovery. Not only are we offering custom editions of MCM’s handbags and leather goods, we are offering an unexpected range of exclusive MCM product in collaboration with brands like Wilson, Everlast, Champion and New Era. We wanted this collection to feel approachable, inclusive and
Today from Only Tease, I have to share with this smoking hot photo gallery of Ellie. Ellie is a blonde hottie that would definitely make any classroom more interesting. Ellie is wearing a light blue blouse and tie underneath her sweater. She’s also wearing navy colored miniskirt, it’s a cute yet with her wearing it, very sexy outfit.
Ellie starts to take off her uniform and we get a really exciting show. She’s not wearing a bra and she has a really remarkable pair of breasts. She’s only wearing a pair of white cotton panties under her uniform. And of course I have to mention her sexy navy colored holdup stockings.
Visit Only Tease to see more of this sexy blonde babe teasing in her college uniform. I have a feeling not much learning would get done when she’s around, but that’s okay with me.
Sure, work boots might be sturdy, but they don’t exactly have a reputation for being stylish. Whether your job requires you to have heavy-duty footwear or you just like tough boots that can get you through the day without weighing you down, we spied a style that’s sure to check off all your boxes. As an added bonus, it’s from two brands we can’t get enough of.
Todd Snyder collaborated with Red Wing Shoes to bring you the Moc Toe Boot. Between the haberdashery and wear-everywhere apparel and accessories Todd Snyder is synonymous with, to the experience Red Wing Shoes has with creating premium work boots (the brand’s been doing it since 1905), you know you’re going to get a great boot that will work just as hard as you do.
The updated style still has traces of the original 877 classic moc boot, yet is made easy to wear even on days you don’t need the extra safety and support. The durable Vibram sole provides great grip, while the shoe is crafted with a mix of premium leather and suede for a thoroughly sporty look. The style is available in two street-ready shades: Charcoal and Copper. The ultra-versatile boot is perfect for pairing with chinos or go casual with your favorite jeans.

IN THE TRENCHES: For her first solo trip abroad, First Lady Melania Trump is en route to Ghana, the first of four countries she plans to visit this week.
While many Washingtonians might want to take flight as the battle over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh continues, FLOTUS’ trip was months in the making. Her wardrobe choices also required considerable planning. Without President Trump at her elbow — or any of the other Trump family members within sight — this will be an individual experience, and presumably a statement–making one from start to finish.
In an interview Friday, Trump’s stylist Hervé Pierre said, “It’s her trip. She really decided to do it. From the beginning, she wanted to do this.”
Expected to land in Ghana at 6 a.m., the First Lady’s travel itinerary includes stops in Malawi, Kenya and Egypt before returning to the Beltway Sunday. “She will spend time with schoolchildren, visit hospitals and do some of the things that tourists do while they are in Africa,” according to pool reporter Katie Rogers of The New York Times. “Why Africa? The White House says she has never been before and has long wanted this to be the destination for her first solo
Wang Chen Tsai-Hsia continued to strip years off her brand in this fresh, sporty, youthful collection, with tracksuit tops spliced with lace bands and sneakers finishing off all the looks.
Lengths were mainly short, with the designer moving between clean cotton silhouettes and her signature lingerie styles, including frilly slips, sheer tulle petticoats and a pretty sheer black top mixing in polka dots.
The set, with its path of colored blocks printed with symbols from a Chinese game, lent a vague “Alice in Wonderland” mood, underscored by the innocent attitude of the collection, with some looks embroidered with animals.
Rabbits climbed across a silk bomber cut slightly longer at the back, while ducks in flight animated a more minimalist pairing of a white shirt with a T-shirt shape and a black zipped skirt. A black coat teamed with beasties. The designer also sent out pared-down takes on traditional dress with illustrated landscape scenes depicting bridges and storks.
It never tipped into kitsch territory, though, with Tsai-Hsia using discreet placements and tone-on-tone embroidery. It was charming, adding personality to the collection, and space to dream.
Reebok will launch a fall campaign Tuesday that ties in with the rerelease of the Aztrek, an off-road runner introduced in 1993 that has futuristic layers and a chunky design that embraces the heart of the Nineties sneaker style. The campaign features six Nineties-raised tastemakers for a content series titled “Aztrek: ’90s Re-run.”
The Aztrek, which was relaunched at retail this summer and sells for $ 90, is unisex and epitomizes the “dad sneaker” trend. It is sold at Champs and Reebok.com.
Featured in the campaign is humorist and social media personality Jay Versace; vintage streetwear reworker Sara Gourlay of Frankie Collective; cult vintage shop owner Kirk Tilton of For All to Envy; Jordan Page, a retro style expert and streetwear archivist, and Josh Matthews and Angie Chavez, vintage collectors and curators.
Each partner was shot in rare vintage NIneties Reebok gear that they personally curated or custom-created, resulting in five “one-of-one” capsule collections, all of which will be available for anyone to enter to win on reebok.com (for free), starting today. Sourced from their personal wardrobes, and coupled with vintage shopping, each collection pays homage to the style of the Nineties, as well as the Aztrek’s distinctive design elements and colorways.

Who is ready to spend a night out on the town with the glamour model Sam Buxton. In today’s Only Tease update, it looks like Sam is off to a trendy club in her slinky gold colored dress and shiny black pantyhose. Things get even steamier when Sam slips out of the dress and shows off her sexy curves and very erotic french knicker panties.
Every day, Only Tease updates with several new photo sets and videos. Today, it was very hard to choose just one to post here. However, I hope you visit Only Tease and see all of them. I can promise you won’t be disappointed when you see Sophia Smith stripping out of her gym kit or Nicola R teasing in her naughty college uniform.
Come see everything that Only Tease has to offer.
Football is back, and that means winter is right around the corner. Once the cold weather starts coming in, you’ll need to be prepared for it, whether you’re watching from the stadium of your favorite NFL team, having people over for a backyard BBQ for the games, or if you’re tailgating outside the stadium. New Era has partnered with the NFL to help you do just that, with their New Era NFL Cold Weather Collection.
The collection includes knit caps for all 32 teams in the league. The three styles of the collection are the New Era NFL Sport Knit, the New Era NFL TD Knit, and the New Era NFL Women’s Knit cap. The hats can make for a great holiday gift, or something to treat yourself to make sure you’re supporting your favorite team this season.
Each of the caps has fleece lining to help keep your head warm, and they’ll do the same for the players, coaches, and team staff on NFL sidelines this season as part of the league’s official collection. We’re big fans of the NFL Sport Knit cap, because it’s hard to go wrong with a pom pom top when you’re cheering on your favorite football team.
All the different styles for each of the 32 teams are available for $ 28 at the New Era website, and other retailers.
Here’s a look at some of the hat styles from New Era:

PICTURE PERFECT: Kaia Gerber has been named the new YSL Beauté makeup ambassador, WWD has learned.
“To be the new face of YSL Beauté is an opportunity to write a new story full of fun, color and makeup,” the model said. “I love the DNA of a brand that is so subversive, while being so luxurious and cool.”
“Kaia is a blossoming talent with a unique sense of style and a stunning beauty,” said Stephan Bezy, international general manager of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté at L’Oréal. “The perfect embodiment of her generation’s desire for authenticity and edginess, as a muse and ambassador she will convey those values, which entirely resonate with what YSL Beauté stands for.”
The 17-year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford is a model-of-the-moment. She’s graced covers of magazines such as Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia, Love and Pop. Gerber made her debut runway season in fall 2017, which was followed by a slew of other catwalk appearances.
She boasts 3.8 million followers on Instagram.
“I think these days, everything you do has to be measured with a degree of responsibility,” Gerber said. “If there are people who view me as a role model, I really hope to be able to create positive images and
Masha Ma kicked off her spring lineup with a shirtdress, which she described as “clinical, clean and sharp.” It was also very feminine, confirming this was an exercise in slate-cleaning. What followed marked a turn into a softer, more fluid and luxurious place with a collection that felt self assured.
She turned her back on the club scenes but her interests continue to lie in a strange, futuristic universe — and she referenced the film “Annihilation” for this season.
The color palette had less black and electric blue, but a lot of bright emerald green, yellow and safari hues. Outerwear remained an obsession, with ongoing support from sponsor Kolon Sport; highlights included a long, pale yellow rain coat with fin-like flaps jetting up off the back, a shiny emerald green bomber with oversize arms and a short tan rain jacket with a hood.
“I want my woman to be protected in my clothes but at the same time not restricted,” she said backstage before the show. She also noted the label has taken on casting director Barbara Nicoli, known for her work with Gucci, and that under new operating rules, aims for a beautiful and intellectual look.
“I want them to look intellectual, not
THE BUDDY SYSTEM: Abercrombie & Fitch Co.’s Hollister brand has joined forces with 18-year-old Natalie Hampton and her antibullying app, Sit With Us. Hampton, a victim of bullying herself, created the app when she was 16 to help students find allies and lunch buddies at school. The app now has more than 100,000 users in eight countries.
The partnership acknowledges Hollister’s 2018 support of National Bullying Prevention Month. This year represents the brand’s sixth antibullying campaign. Kristin Scott, Hollister’s brand president, said, “Sit With Us is the perfect partnership for Hollister, aligning well with Hollister’s brand value of celebrating the freedom to belong.”
Hollister has focused on promoting inclusivity and raising awareness of antibullying, as well as providing resources for middle and high school students in need. Since 2013, the teen brand has raised and donated slightly over $ 1.7 million to local, national and global organizations that support antibullying efforts, and awarded scholarships to 50 students who have overcome bullying in their lives. The brand in July noted that multiplatinum recording artists Khalid and Noah Cyrus joined Hollister’s #CarpeNow initiative for the balance of 2018, and they will be a part of the Hollister and Sit With Us campaign.
Hampton said, “I believe school
Today, I’d like you to meet a sultry blonde babe named Kerri. It’s the first time I’ve mentioned her, but I’m sure it won’t be the last. Check out this photo gallery featuring Kerri, courtesy of Only Tease. Kerri teases right out of her tight white top and green miniskirt. It’s not long before she’s posing in just her panties and thin, very sheer pantyhose.
You can see more of this delightful blonde inside Only Tease. Every day of the week, several new photo sets and videos are added to Only Tease. These photo sets and videos contain nothing but beautiful women teasing in erotic outfits – outfits like uniforms, erotic lingerie, etc.
You no longer need to choose between fashion and function this fall.
That’s because the world’s most stylish brands now offer great-looking threads that are as attractive as they are rugged and durable. Take this warm technical parker from Hugo Boss (above, $ 845; hugoboss.com). Its sleek all-navy look is cool enough for city streets but it’s also made from a polyamide fabric that won’t crease or tear if you brush up against a few sharp corners in the great outdoors.
Here are some more standout fall pieces that embrace the best of both worlds.
The ballistic nylon in this Burton Tinder Tote ($ 71.95, amazon.com) and the Fyre Scout Boot ($ 258, thefyrecompany.com) might not have met the bullet-blocking standard its WWII-era creators wanted, but it’s damned good at resisting everyday wear and tear.
The same goes for the cotton-polyamide blend in Belstaff’s Burfield Park shearling-lined parka ($ 1,895, belstaff.com).
YOU CAN DANCE: Audience participation is not usually part of the deal when you go to the ballet, but the opening gala of the season at the Paris Opera set out to shake up traditions.
Guests were invited to join the Paris Opera Ballet on stage at the ornate Palais Garnier, where they were led by dancers to perform a waltz. In their colorful evening dresses, the untrained participants stood out from the sea of tuxedo-clad dancers.
“We weren’t given any indications whatsoever,” said music producer Pedro Winter, who was the only male picked to go on stage. “The dancers guided me through touch and by maintaining constant eye contact. It turned out to be pretty instinctive in the end. You just let go.”
It was all part of Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin’s “Decadanse,” an electrifying performance featuring 31 dancers. The first act, an energetic group choreography to the tune of Goldfrapp’s “Black Cherry,” gave an indication of the unusual evening to come.
Russian prima ballerina Diana Vishneva and Aurélie Dupont earned rapturous applause for their “Boléro” pas de deux, wearing black asymmetrical costumes designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. Dupont, who retired from dancing in 2015, succeeded Benjamin Millepied as director of the
Transporting her audience, as always, Hyun Mi Nielsen took to a darker place this season. Wearing strange wooden clogs with pointy toes and covered in studs — a collaboration with shoe designer Zoe Lee — models moved briskly around the room, the clip-clopping accompanied by the gentle clinking of swaying metal embellishments. Underneath the profusion of hardware, black leather, piercings and chokers — in motion, all of it — sat a compelling lineup of fresh silhouettes that conveyed beauty of an uncommon sort.
“I have this thing about light and dark,” she said, pointing to her childhood in Denmark where the winters are very dark and the summers are very light.
Still focused on her magpie collector, who can’t resist a shiny object that catches her eye, she obsessed over rivets. They decorated the clothing, gravitating to different parts of the body, covering an entire cape in one case and even stuck onto bare skin, broadening her territory.
Lightness came in the form of billowing silk, recalling her last haute couture collection — she now prefers to show her collections on the ready-to-wear calendar to better connect with clients. It came in a sparsely colored tie-dye with shades of brown and a light
HIDDEN MESSAGE: Guests at the Haider Ackermann show were asked to tiptoe around a white chalk drawing on the floor of the Palais de Tokyo. “My name is on the floor!” marveled jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez, who immediately took a picture with her phone.
Model Farida Khelfa noted with dismay that hers was half wiped off. She has a role in Jean Paul Gaultier’s “Fashion Freak Show” at the Folies Bergères, but one that doesn’t require her to be on stage. “I play Dominique, the woman who helped him start in the business when he was very young. But it’s a filmed sequence.”
Sitting next to an elaborate “Tilda and Sandro” drawing, Tilda Swinton discussed the importance of color in her upcoming film, a remake of Dario Argento’s horror movie “Suspiria” directed by Luca Guadagnino out Nov. 2. She plays Madame Blanc, a teacher at the Markos dance academy in Berlin.
“All of us are affected by the colors we wear,” said Swinton, adding that Madame Blanc’s outfits are a variation of orange, brown, gray and purple. “There is a very iconic dress Madame Blanc wears that is just brown, and it made me think that she looked like a tree. When you’re making a
Game on! Today at Only Tease you can enjoy Kim B in an extremely sexy referee uniform. I have no idea what sport she is going to be officiating but whatever sport I’m sure the men are going to have a hard time paying attention to the score when she’s around.
Who knew a referee uniform could be so sexy. I’m pretty sure that low cut blouse and extremely short miniskirt isn’t part of the regulation uniform, but I’m not going to complain. And underneath Kim is wearing a pair of white cotton panties.
Click here to visit Only Tease to see a lot more of this super sexy referee. At Only Tease, Kim B is just one of the many beautiful ladies that you can enjoy teasing in sexy uniforms. There you can see babes stripping out of nurse uniforms, sexy office clothing and the always popular police woman outfit.
Classic watch brands—like Breitling, Rolex, and Omega—have a long pedigree of looking sharp and working hard. Their watches have storied backgrounds, serving as timepieces for astronauts and race-car drivers alike.
If you’re looking for timeless investment pieces to upgrade your collection, here are four classics you should consider. They’re sharp yet durable, so they’ll stay in perfect condition when it comes time to pass down to your kid… if you can bear to part ways with ’em.

PARTY FAITHFUL: The front row at Hedi Slimane’s show for Celine was filled with longtime friends of the designer, with Karl Lagerfeld, Catherine Deneuve, Lou Doillon, Joséphine de La Baume, Alexa Chung and Mark Ronson joining a legion of musicians at the event, held in a tent in front of the Hôtel des Invalides on Friday.
While the dark venue provided good cover for many celebrities in attendance, there was no missing Lady Gaga, who stood in the center of a throng of flashing cameras with Lagerfeld. The singer provided the first glimpse of Slimane’s new Celine designs when she was seen carrying the 16 handbag on Instagram on Aug. 30.
Gaga, wearing an Alaïa snakeskin trenchcoat, was on a break from promoting her new movie “A Star Is Born” following its U.K. premiere on Thursday. Ronson helped to write the track “Shallow,” in which she sings a duet with her costar Bradley Cooper.
Sitting opposite her was Alex Kapranos, lead singer of Franz Ferdinand, who has worn Slimane’s creations since the designer was at Dior Homme.
“Hedi’s always been a good friend to the musicians all around the world and we all love him as well — he’s a great guy. Personally speaking,
Lutz Huelle pounced on some classics and roped them into his game. He was hankering after more elegance this season and turned to bourgeois motifs like roses, polka dots and an alligator skin print, and eager to push these couture elements out into the street.
For a dressy coat — it was beautiful — he picked a red rose print set against a dark background that added vibrancy to the colors. Puffed up shoulders from last season pushed outwards a smidgen; sleeves were wide, stopping near the elbow; the waist was cinched.
“How would she wear it?” Huelle asked. “With a sweatshirt underneath to go shopping!”
The designer also thought about mothers and daughters raiding each other’s closets — not to mention the father’s wardrobe.
“This whole notion of old and new is completely gone, in a way, because a beautiful garment is a beautiful garment…there’s no rule about how people dress these days,” the designer observed backstage before the show.
Taking full advantage of this welcome state of affairs, he offered a lineup of deconstructed jean jackets, bombers with ruffles or drawn tight to the waist with a Fifties New Look flair, and, what he claimed to be his first jacquard cocktail dress. This,
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of its Alhambra jewelry collection, Van Cleef & Arpels will bring its interactive installation to South Coast Plaza from Oct. 4 to 14. First unveiled in London and Tokyo, the 1,000-square-foot structure will be located in the shopping center’s Jewel Court.
Inspired by the shape of the clover motif and based on the collection’s theme of luck, the installation comprises four connected rooms, each telling a different part of the Alhambra story. As they make their way through the installation, visitors are invited to experience four digitally augmented, dreamlike journeys that lead them further into the universe of Van Cleef & Arpels.
A view of the VCA 50th Anniversary installation.
In continued celebration of the collection, Van Cleef & Arpels will be prelaunching a limited-edition, Vintage Alhambra 10-motif necklace and 5-motif bracelet in yellow gold and blue agate, available exclusively at South Coast Plaza. Meant to symbolize the California ocean, blue agate returns to the collection for the first time since 1989. Combined with yellow gold, this translucent form of chalcedony also has a soft radiance that evokes the blue glow of twilight.
After introducing the first Alhambra long necklace in 1968, VCA continues to enhance the permanent collection

Whether you can’t wait for it to finally be cold enough to wear that new puffer coat you acquired or are still clinging on to the last bits of summer, your transitional weather-wear wardrobe can probably stand to use a few new items. When it’s not quite warm enough for your go-to T-shirt and jeans and still a touch too hot for heavy-duty knits, you need options that are breathable enough to keep you cool and comfortable all day.

Yes, really, everything: from lightweight knits and waxed jackets to denim and boots. You’ll have to act fast, though: The sale only runs for 24 hours until midnight September 13 (PST).

THE MET’S SUNDAY BEST: Last-minute museum-goers still have 10 days to catch the record-breaking “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Fifth Avenue location and The Met Cloisters.
With 1.3 million visitors at the Upper East Side museum and nearly 200,000 at The Met Cloisters — and counting — the show is the most-visited one for The Met’s Costume Institute. Spanning 60,000 square feet and 25 galleries, the exhibition is the largest that has ever been staged. A myriad of designs from Thierry Mugler, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Thom Browne, Azzedine Alaïa, John Galliano for the House of Dior, Claire McCardell, Madeleine Vionnet, Isabel Toledo, Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino, Elsa Schiaparelli and other designers are on view throughout the Met. The layout inevitably is leading many attendees to areas of the museum beyond the Costume Institute. On the flip side, visitors who may be in search of non-fashion exhibitions may be introduced and perhaps tempted to explore more in The Costume Institute.
The success of the exhibition has been another winning moment for The Costume Institute’s curator in charge Andrew Bolton, who has helped to rev up attendance numbers in recent years. “Heavenly Bodies” appears to be closing
“Dress good to look good. Look good to feel good. And feel good to run fast!”
That quote from Olympic champion Florence Griffith Joyner holds particular resonance for Virgil Abloh, who after his collaboration with Nike and Serena Williams teamed up again with the sportswear giant for his spring Off-White ready-to-wear show. This time, he turned his attention to track and field, a theme that ran through his seasonal statement, from the racing bibs sent out as invitations to the stadium-themed set and the models themselves. The designer tapped eight female star athletes to walk in his show at the Garage Amelot in Paris.
Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner opened the show in crisp white shirts and short skirts. Kaia Gerber was close behind, in a shirtdress with a tank top pieced together from Nike socks. With their metronomic clips, the models easily outpaced the athletes, overtaking some as they wound their way around the track, while a jumbotron flashed their names and countries of origin.
Some of the sports stars blended in effortlessly. Vashti Cunningham, a U.S. high jumper and the daughter of former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham, flexed her 6-foot, 1-inch frame in a tiered cream tent dress, paired with white
BERLIN — Hugo Boss is keeping things close to home with its latest capsule collection: Boss “Made in Germany.”
While the Metzingen-based giant is more normally inclined to emphasize its global expertise, Boss is now openly celebrating its heritage with a 12-piece capsule for men and women designed and manufactured in Germany.
“Made in Germany” is not exactly new for Boss, pointed out chief brand officer Ingo Wilts. The brand’s full canvas suits are all produced in Boss headquarters. “But we’re proud to be the biggest premium fashion-maker in Germany, and thought it would be great to do something German and celebrate our heritage.”
He added, “We also know that whenever we go outside Germany, in France or Asia, for example, they really appreciate [articles] made in Germany. Though it was a big effort to find someone who makes knits and leathers here.” The lion’s share of the collection, which has a natty tailored slant, was manufactured at Boss headquarters in Metzingen.
Built on the brand’s tailoring DNA and working with Italian fabrics exclusively developed for Boss, the collection features six revamped classics each for men and women. Men have their pick of a double-breasted coat and blouson in a bonded wool check, a burgundy

COSTUME PARTY: There’s no slowing perennial overachiever Karl Lagerfeld, who has designed two Chanel costumes for the pas de deux of “Bolero,” which will be performed by Diana Vishneva, prima ballerina of the Mariinsky Ballet, and Aurélie Dupont, director of dance at the Paris Opera Ballet, at the latter company’s opening gala at the Palais Garnier on Thursday night.
The performance will be part of a new entry into the repertory of the Paris Opera Ballet: “Decadance” by Ohad Naharin, one of the world’s foremost contemporary choreographers, as a one-shot special appearance.
“Ravel’s ‘Boléro’ has always been one of my most favorite pieces of music in the world,” Lagerfeld said. “It was the first classical record I bought when I was 16 years old.”
Dupont said that after weeks of rehearsing for a show, “where we work on the positions and reflect on the role, putting on the costume allows us to completely metamorphose, to embody a role.”
“The costume is the finishing touch that allows you to become the character,” she added.
Opening with the presentation of the Ballet Corps — a tradition established by Serge Lifar, a friend of Gabrielle Chanel — where the opera dancers will parade to “La Marche des Troyens” by
For the most part, Richard René stuck to his palette, black and white, as announced in the show notes. These came in the form of a handwritten note signed by Guy Laroche observing the dark shadows and overly bright lights of a Parisian nightclub in the Eighties, at 6 a.m. Something was scribbled about a broken vase, adding to the mystery and setting imaginations on a spin.
The lineup turned out to be a curious exercise in contrasts. Large, angular patches of black and white were transposed or stuck together in odd and surprising ways. A simple white sleeveless dress had a black sleeve pinned to one side while a suit jacket was black on the left and white on the right. There was an impeccably tailored trenchcoat, all white — no wait, it was entirely black in the back. And so it went, startling at times, but also prompting gasps of wonderment at one point.
Heading into dressier territory, René continues to experiment as he seeks the right register for a brand that has befuddled a succession of designers in recent years. Recognizing the challenge, he sent down one piece with a message on the back: “Work in progress.”
EARLY BIRD: Despite giving one of her first live performances since the birth of her daughter Kulture, Cardi B was among the guests filing into the 10 a.m. Mugler show in Paris on Wednesday.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper posed for photographers in a tailored black jacket that was cut open in the back to reveal sheer cycling shorts with lacing details — as well as a glimpse of her black thong. She was up at 6 a.m. getting her makeup done for the show.
“It was really hard for me to get up this morning because, you know, the time difference — I’m still in an America time frame in my head — so I was like, ‘Oh, man!’ But you gotta do it. Gotta work!” she said with a bright smile.
The rapper is riding high despite her high-profile brawl with Nicki Minaj at the Harper’s Bazaar Icons party during New York Fashion Week.
She performed at the Etam lingerie event in Paris on Tuesday night, a day after “Girls Like You,” her track with Maroon 5, made it to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making her the first female rapper with three Billboard number-one singles.
Kayla Fox is spending her Sunday relaxing in just a cotton button down shirt and a sexy bra and panty set. However, after getting a phone call from her male friend she decides to strip out of that outfit and into something a lot more exciting. She puts on a pair of sheer stockings and a silk chemise, I have a feeling that when her friend arrives he’s going to definitely like what he sees!
Visit Only Tease today to see more of Kayla Fox. These photos are just a sample of what you can find inside the website. There’s ten exciting photo sets of Kayla with well over a hundred photos in each set. There’s an additional two sets waiting to be released soon. And of course, Kayla is just one of the many models featured at Only Tease.
We’ve always associated Matthew McConaughey with perfect surfer hair. His mane is full despite the fineness of his hair, thanks to its natural, wavy texture. He cleans it up for black-tie events, but wears it casually otherwise. McConaughey is proof you don’t need to have some businessman’s cut to be taken seriously. Instead, you only have to know how to style and maintain your hair.
To learn how to do exactly that, we spoke with our stylist pal Greg Ruggeri of Salon Ruggeri in NYC. He has enviable wavy hair, much like McConaughey’s, and helps many of his male and female clients make good of their own. Here’s Ruggeri’s advice on how to cop McConaughey’s look for yourself.
The Type of Hair You Need
As with any style, you need to have the right kind of hair in order to execute this one perfectly. This comes down to density, texture, thickness, and so forth. And with McConaughey’s style, Ruggeri says you need to have fine- to medium-textured hair (so, not thick and wiry), and it needs to have “a slight wave or soft curl to create the appearance of floppiness.”
If you have thick and straight hair, this style will end up looking like Brad Pitt in the late aughts. It’s not a bad result, but it’s important to note you’ll have different results, and that this piecier McConaughey style is probably not yours to execute.
And of course, it will need to be dense—that is, not overtly thinning—and grown an inch or two past your ears.
What to Tell Your Stylist
Ruggeri says you won’t need to cut much, but that your stylist should do a general tidying up everywhere.
“Keep the length, giving the appearance of a slightly grown-out haircut,” he says. “Then, ask him or her to texturize the ends all over, to create definition and softness.”
How to Style it Casually (Like Our October 2018 Shoot Above)
Ruggeri says to start with a curling balm (like Liquid Rollers from Evo), which will emphasize your natural curly texture, as well as a salt spray (like Australian Salt Spray from David Mallet) to enhance and control it. You can also substitute the balm for a light paste (like Box o’ Bollox by Evo), which will preserve your wavy texture if you aren’t working with actual curls.
“When hair is slightly wet, apply the pomade or curling balm to your hands,” says Ruggeri. “Rub together gently, distributing evenly over your palms. Then lightly rub the product over your entire head. Don’t think too much about it.”
You can comb it in with your fingers, then go back through and scratch at it to dismantle the neatness. You just want to keep it loose, unfussy.
“Once the first product is applied, lightly spray salt spray to create slight texture,” Ruggeri adds. “If you want a simpler approach, try just using the salt spray by itself. Your only concern here is not to use too much.”
Start with a couple sprays, evenly over the hair, and work from there, gauging the texture and definition as you go.
How to Style it Formally
When it comes to dressed-up styling, Ruggeri says that the formal execution is not much different than the casual approach: “The difference with formal styling here is that you’d use slightly more product,” he says. You’ll get a glossier finish, and Ruggeri advises using your fingers to play with the balance and weight—until you see that it flatters and frames you properly.
How Often to Get it Cleaned Up
Ruggeri says you should return to your stylist every 4-8 weeks for a slight trim with scissors. You don’t want to do anything with an electric clipper, and you only want to clean up the ends and lightly texturize anything that isn’t already so.
Note: Guys with straight hair will have to texturize their hair with scissors more often. How frequently you visit is just a matter of how fast your hair grows, and a matter of how quickly the style looks or feels unlike the one you first received.

Arielle Charnas, the influencer behind the popular fashion blog and social channels Something Navy, had a “wildly successful” launch of her collection exclusively at Nordstrom on Monday, according to a Nordstrom spokeswoman. The brand was so popular it crashed the site in the first hour, which was quickly remedied.
Many customers complained online that they weren’t able to buy what they put in their shopping bag since the site crashed, and once it was back online Nordstrom had sold out of the items.
The introduction followed the successful launch of the Treasure & Bond x Something Navy capsule collection last fall. That capsule was estimated to have racked up sales of about $ 1 million in less than 24 hours, as reported.
On Monday, Something Navy sales beat expectations, according to the spokeswoman. Among the best sellers were a v-neck slouchy pullover, which was available in five colors for $ 79; the double-breasted topper coat in check pattern for $ 139, and the teddy coat, available in two colors, blue and tan, for $ 149. The tan sold out Monday and the blue is still available in large and XXL.
The blue teddy coat is still available in a few sizes.
Charnas will make an appearance at Nordstrom’s Yorkdale
At a time when the United Nations is meeting in New York, discord between nations has rarely appeared so high. Christelle Kocher has other ideas.
Her spring collection was an ode to unity, under the guise of a celebration of women worldwide. That could be a soignée Parisienne, strutting down Avenue Montaigne in a fuchsia blazer, or a young girl in Indonesia going out with friends in a sequined top and matching headscarf, paired with pleated track pants.
“It’s an homage to diversity, a rallying call in which fashion can be a good vector of unification,” Kocher said backstage after the show, held at the French Communist Party headquarters in Paris, a saucer-shaped building designed by Oscar Niemeyer in the Sixties.
Kocher has always connected with a more nuanced vision of Paris than most people who live here experience — the result of shuttling between her job as artistic director of Maison Lemarié, part of Chanel’s stable of specialty ateliers, and her own studio in the multiethnic neighborhood of Belleville in the northeast of Paris.
This season, she broadened that vision to places she has visited, and those she dreams of discovering. A black bodysuit was embroidered with silver sequins in geometric motifs inspired
NEAT KNITS: Don’t take your sweater for granted.
This felt like the underlying message relayed by Fast Retailing Co. Ltd. executives speaking before a crowded room of journalists gathered for a Uniqlo exhibit about knitwear in Paris. People squeezed into the entrance of the show, a wide room covered with dangling wheels of colored wool, the hues arranged like a giant, three-dimensional rainbow.
Held at the Jeu de Paume museum in Paris, the show runs from Wednesday through Saturday. It’s a sort of ephemeral pop-up experience from the Japanese label, which touts the exhibit as its first, as it joins the growing ranks of brands aiming to pull in new consumers by telling people how their stuff is made.
“The Art and Science of LifeWear” features a knitting machine in action, building a sweater dress before the public. It then takes visitors through a life of a sweater through photos, showing inspection stages and the factory hanger system, finishing with the final residue removal, done by hand. Another room is covered with rows of outfits, some outfitted with knit hats, scarves and gloves.
Closing the exhibit is a pop-up shop, complete with a cash register, featuring collaborations with Andrea Crews—airport themed, with sweaters stamped “Paris”

“We now have three generations of family members working side by side every day from 29 years old to almost 90,” said Steven Roberts, chief executive officer and chief innovation officer of Echo Design Group. “I think we have as much passion for the business today as we have ever had.”
This year, the family-owned accessories and home design company celebrates 95 years of business, and to commemorate the milestone on Thursday, the brand is hosting a “National Scarf Day” event with Bloomingdale’s and style influencer Natalie Lim Suarez of @NatalieOffDuty.
“Echo’s headquarters have been in Midtown [New York] for our entire 95 years. How fitting to be able to celebrate our 95th with our friends and partners of so many years at Bloomingdale’s. Their customers have been supporting and appreciating Echo products for many years,” Roberts said.
Known for scarves, which continue to be a staple, Echo also makes puffy nylon jackets, rainwear, hats, wraps and leather gloves. There is a comprehensive home line that extends to duvets and pillow shams, table linens, paper napkins, ceramic soap dispensers and shower curtains. The one unifying element among all these seemingly disparate categories: the vibrant and eclectic prints that have always been at the
Alexis Mabille ventured into new territory this season — tiptoed, rather — offering a few pieces in black.
“I usually work with midnight blue, but this time I felt like adding black — but always with bold colors,” he was quick to note. The black clothing served as an accent to the collection, he suggested, pointing to a few items tucked in front of a ground-sweeping dress in bright yellow.
One of the rare black pieces was an off-the-shoulder shirtdress, cinched at the waist, in an airy satin organza, its puffed out sleeves an elegant nod to his couture roots.
It is becoming a tradition for Mabille to present his ready-to-wear collection in an intimate, by-appointment setting — part of his project of refocusing the collections around high-end daywear while pre-collections move further into dressier, evening territory.
Ever playful, Mabille tooled around with materials, making two vastly different dresses using the same pattern. Here was a light, airy day dress in striped blue cotton poplin; suddenly, in a silky satin in midnight blue with back lace trim, it took on a sultry tone for evening. There were quite a few of these silky, lacy numbers, peeking out from the more regal, sculptured pieces.
PARIS – Hedi Slimane has given his first interview since his nomination at Celine to French daily newspaper Le Figaro. The famously discreet designer spoke to journalist Laurence Benaïm in Tuesday’s issue of the newspaper.
The interview comes days before his debut collection at Celine, which will be unveiled on Sept. 28 during Paris Fashion Week.
“I am delighted to come back to a French house, a tradition, professions, ateliers,” said Slimane. “Paris is the best at ‘handmade,’ which is incredibly chic. Beyond the virtuosity of the ateliers, this savoir-faire is due to a state of mind, a way of working, the immediate understanding of a model, a particular feeling that can only be found in Paris.”
He explains that an additional atelier has been added to the 17th century mansion that houses Celine’s headquarters, the Hôtel Colbert de Torcy in the 2nd arrondissment, which will be dedicated to the creation of Celine’s first men’s wear line.
Upon arriving at Celine, Slimane chose to rebrand the maison by taking the French accent off the house’s name.
“It’s in no way about marking my territory, quite the contrary,” said the designer, adding that it was his way of “putting the church back at the center of the
Take a look at these sexy photos of a cute blonde named Karen showing off her patterned pantyhose. She’s wearing a hot outfit – tight red top, white shorts and black heels, but the best part of this outfit is definitely her nylons. She slowly teases out of her outfit, showing off her beautiful figure and blue panties. By the end of this set, the only things that she’s still wearing is her panties and pantyhose.

Even though Game of Thrones is one of the most critically-acclaimed television series of all time, actor Kit Harington, who plays the flowingly-haired Jon Snow on the HBO blockbuster, wasn’t so sure about the show’s chances during the 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards.
It wasn’t that Harington didn’t have confidence in all the hard work the cast and crew put into Season 7, quite the opposite in fact. But after taking a year off from the awards due to eligibility issues in 2017, the actor thought the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences might not have the show in the front of their minds when it was time to give the awards out. That idea turned out to be all for naught: Game of Thrones ended up winning the award for Outstanding Drama series for the third time.
“It was exciting to be at the Emmy Awards again and to win, because we weren’t expecting to a win this time,” Harington told Men’s Journal. “We were away for a while, and I wasn’t even sure we’d get nominated, which in some ways sounds mad. But we missed a year and sometimes they’ll wait for a final season to give the awards. I thought Season 7 was brilliant, and I’m glad they recognized that.”
Harington was front-and-center for Season 7 of the series, helping to forge alliances between warring Houses and trying to convince everyone in Westeros that they needed to fight back against the marching White Walkers beyond the Wall. The explosive, jam-packed season helped set up quite a few intriguing storylines for the final year of the show.
For as much as he’s sad that the series is ending after Season 8, Harington said that he’s thankful and lucky to have been part of the show for so long. Being on the show has catapulted Harington into stardom, and even helped him meet his wife, Rose Leslie, who played the character Ygritte on the series. The two married at Wardhill Castle in Scotland during the Summer of 2018.
“The whole experience has been incredible,” Harington says. “I’ve felt very fortunate to work with so many amazing people.”
Harington’s role as Jon Snow has also helped make him a global star, which is one reason why Dolce & Gabbana teamed up with the actor to make him the face of their men’s fragrances. The most recent release is The One Grey (available at Macy’s and Macys.com), a new fragrance that has bold and elegant smell, combining the scents of cardamom, vetiver, as well as hints of grapefruit, warm tobacco, and grey woods.
Harington spoke with Men’s Journal following the Emmy Awards and spoke about his experiences filming in 40-degrees below zero in Iceland, working with Dolce & Gabbana, and what he kept from the Game of Thrones set.
We know you can’t tell us any spoilers about the final season of Game of Thrones, or HBO will swoop in and kidnap us. But generally, what are you excited about and for fans to see of Season 8?
This is going to be so boring, but it’s a minefield to say anything. Even in the past when I’ve said something it gets taken the wrong way, or that I revealed something. Even if I’ll say that it’s going to be an exciting season, it’ll get put out in the wrong way. I don’t know how I’m going to deal with this when I actually have to promote the thing, but I don’t want anything to get taken wrongly. I’ll say this about Season 7, it was just brilliant to work on. The intensity of doing episodes, and getting to do more than I’ve ever done on the show, it was fantastic and a wonderful experience, and it’ll be exciting for fans to see what’s next.
Season 7 had some of the most thrilling scenes the show has ever had, including the journey in “Beyond the Wall.” What was it like to shoot those scenes and work in the locations you’ve been able to film in?
We filmed a lot of that in Iceland. It was brutal, being out there in minus-40 degrees and the freezing wind. It can be quite an experience. Overall, I love location work. I’m more of a person that thinks there is a benefit of filming on location, whether it’s Game of Thrones or something else. You get to go to these incredible locations and step on to these amazing sets in places where people would have to pay to come visit. If you’re in film, that’s what you want to do. You can’t really complain when you are bitterly cold, because you’re in some of the most stunning places in the world like Iceland or Croatia and so on.
Did you keep anything from the Game of Thrones set?
I actually didn’t take anything too crazy. I kept some of the armor that I use for Jon Snow’s outfit, like the wrist protectors I’ll wear in his costume. I thought those were pretty cool.
What have you enjoyed about your experience working with Dolce & Gabbana in the past and on this campaign?
It’s exciting to work on something global and to work alongside people who enthusiastic and passionate about what they do. It helps when you like the fragrance personally already when you wear it. It’s a great scent and I enjoy it. It’s kind of surreal to me to find myself walking through an airport and you see your own face staring back at you. Doing this type of stuff is a different side of work for me, because it’s not exactly acting, but you also get to be creative and performative with it, and D&G are great collaborators in that sense. Plus, you get to wear some nice suits and look great for a day [laughs].
You looked very sharp at the Emmys with the Game of Thrones cast. Do you have any style tips for regular guys?
I was wearing a Dolce & Gabbana suit at the Emmys, so that was fun to be able to look sharp like that. As an actor, you get a lot of help with your style, but advice-wise, I’d say that I don’t really have any tips, but for me getting dressed up is about feeling comfortable. I’d say for anyone to keep that in mind, because if you feel comfortable and feel good about yourself, you’ll look better too.

Josep Font is stepping down as creative director of Spanish luxury brand Delpozo. He was hired to relaunch the brand six years ago by Grupo Perfumes y Diseño, which has held the house’s perfume license since 1992 and acquired the label in full in 2011. A successor will be named at a later date.
Prior to joining Delpozo, Font had his own label, which he showed during Madrid, Barcelona, Tokyo and Paris fashion weeks. He revived Delpozo, originally launched in 1974 by Spanish couturier Jesus del Pozo, with a flare for dramatic, colorful and eccentric collections that often employed couture techniques and silhouettes. Though based in Spain, the brand held its fashion show during New York Fashion Week before switching to London for the last two seasons.
“Josep has been a key figure for the relaunch of Delpozo,” said the company’s president Pedro Trolez, who owns Grupo Perfumes y Diseño, in a statement. “Over the past six years, he has helped rejuvenate and continue the legacy of Jesus.”
“I am very proud of what we have achieved together in the short space of six years,” said Font. “ I want to thank my talented team who has been committed since the beginning of this
Like many designers and brands this season, Winonah de Jong gave in to her wanderlust, and took a trip — a safari to be precise. She sent out a glamorous — and travel-friendly — collection that was full of easy, classic pieces including cotton blouses, jumpsuits and safari jackets. De Jong put her personal spin on the trench, slipping a belt on the inside so that the coat could be cinched and still remain drapey at the front. A cinnamon cotton safari suit came with an elastic nipped waist and a midi skirt, while a jumpsuit in a similar shade was belted at the waist.
A camouflage print crept over long and languid trousers, a jumpsuit and a skinny minidress with long sleeves and built-up shoulders — a Winonah signature. Other summer-ready looks included a pink cotton dress with ruffle sleeves that gathered at the elbow, and a similar style done in white with embroidered black animal shapes hand-drawn by de Jong. Those black-on-white, naif drawings were a highlight of the collection, with a menagerie of African beasts striding across pieces including a ruffle-front skirt, high-waist trousers and a blouse with puff sleeves.
PARIS — LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton is applying its formidable finances and management might to revive the dormant Jean Patou fashion house, WWD has learned.
Sidney Toledano, chairman and chief executive officer of LVMH Fashion Group, is spearheading the project and has already selected and signed on a designer to lead it: Guillaume Henry.
Last March, Henry exited Nina Ricci and he is said to be passionate about the legacy of Patou, a French designer who brought modernity and buzz to fashion in the Twenties — and innovated in business with fragrances, logos and sport clothes.
LVMH is now in the throes of building teams around Henry with a view to launching the first collection of ready-to-wear and accessories in the second half of 2019.
It is understood the group views Patou as something of a niche, rarified name — and not its next megabrand. Consequently, LVMH will likely start with a single boutique, most likely in Paris, along with e-commerce and select wholesale partners.
The relaunch suggests the world’s largest luxury group is anticipating an easing of the streetwear craze, and a swing of the fashion pendulum back to sophisticated chic.

ITALIAN TRIBUTE: Vogue Italia took over Milan’s Cinema Manzoni on Friday night to pay tribute to legendary Italian musician Mina Mazzini, who is the focus of the magazine’s October issue. The issue features a range of fashion shoots showing famous models, including Gisele Bündchen, Carla Bruni and Mariacarla Boscono, posing as Mina — she dropped her last name as an artist — in different stages of her life and career and captured by international photographers, such as Luigi & Iango, Giampaolo Sgura and Dario Catellani.
“I don’t know Mina, unfortunately. But I’m excited to learn about her, the pictures are fabulous. The pictures are amazing, they did an amazing tribute,” said Jeremy Scott, who was among the guests at the party, which included a live performance by drag queen Violet Chachki and a gospel choir.
Asked about his favorite Mina song, designer Francesco Scognamiglio mentioned “Ma che m’hai imparato a fa.” “It’s a great Neapolitan song she covered and that our Maestro Gianni Versace used for his Atelier runway show in Paris in 1993 and which has been the most emotional moment of my life,” he said.
Mina is not only a music legend, but she has always been a style icon and a muse for
Color is the news at Herno, said Claudio Marenzi, chief executive officer of the Italian outerwear company. A range of reds, from crimson to burgundy; plus fuchsia, periwinkle and kiwi green added a vibrant edge to big parkas and capes.
As usual, Herno invested in research and materials, with a new waterproof parka made in cotton with a polyurethane coating. Inside, rainbow-striped, thermo-taped seams completed the look. A drawstring with gold metal details added a feminine touch to the functional garment. An oversize bomber was updated in a new nylon sailcloth that reversed to a taffeta voile. A number of light down vests presented an intriguing watercolor pattern of people silhouetted on a white background.
Marenzi was also upbeat about the performance of the new Herno flagship opened in mid-August and officially unveiled with an event during Milan Fashion Week. “With a space on Via Montenapoleone that is five times our former unit in Via Sant’Andrea, there is a lot more traffic and visibility,” he said. A new flagship will open in Paris on rue Saint-Honoré in October, he added.
MILAN – A “saddened and concerned” Camera della Moda has responded to The New York Times article on “shadow workers” in Italy, which claims “thousands of low-paid home workers create luxury garments without contracts or insurance.”
”As the acclaimed writer, Edoardo Nesi acknowledges in his award-winning book, ‘Story of My People,’ published in 2013, the Italian supply chain has been under attack for a long time,” the group said in an official statement. “CNMI and its members are committed to working toward making the Italian supply chain resilient, fair and humane on every front. It is a complex process and it takes time; there are no easy solutions, but we are working together through our established Working Group on Social Sustainability and have already achieved substantive gains. We continue to implement solutions using our evidence-base and by working collaboratively.”
At a fashion show here, Carlo Capasa, president of the association, told WWD that this progress was overlooked by Times.
“For example, the NYT article uses statistics on homeworkers that date back to 1973,” read the statement. “The only recent statistics cited are from Tania Toffanin, the author of ‘Fabbriche Invisibili’ who estimated that ‘currently there are 2,000 to 4,000 irregular homeworkers in apparel production.’ Setting this in the context of

The collaboration between actress, producer and activist Jessica Biel and Gaiam, the yoga, fitness and wellness brand, was revealed Thursday night at The One Hotel Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn, N.Y. The event marked the first celebrity-created line for Gaiam, a division of Sequential Brands Group Inc., since 2016, as part of a multiyear partnership with Biel.
“She [Jessica] has been a true collaborator, thoughtfully codesigning the capsule collection with a keen focus on the functionality of each style,” said Eddie Esses, president of Sequential’s active division. “She really pushed to ensure each piece would fit seamlessly into busy modern lifestyles.”
During the event, the 36-year-old Biel said she was grateful for the partnership. “This is a really authentic partnership for me, yoga and wellness are a huge part of my personal life and have been for a long time. I wanted something that women could feel good in whether they are doing yoga, working out or just running errands, playing with their kids or simply lounging,” said Biel, who has a three-year-old son with husband Justin Timberlake. She said the idea was to create something versatile that blends fashion elements with comfort and function and is accessible for every lifestyle.
The deal was
According to the show notes, Act N°1, making its debut at Milan Fashion Week, the brand wanted to raise awareness of the child marriage issue affecting Georgia, the native country of Galib Gassanoff, who designs the brand with Luca Lin. The mission was absolutely noble yet it was difficult to understand how they translated their condemnation into the clothes.
The designers used tulle and several fabrics inspired by wedding dresses, and street versions of white wedding gowns were presented on the catwalk. However, the collection was more about manipulated silk slipdresses and wrap tulle styles featuring broken chains, inserts and draping details, distressed denim pants and shirts crafted in bizarre silhouettes. The grungy collection was more suitable for rebellious city girls, rather than for taking a stand on social issues.
AL FRESCO: After Paris and London, Milan is hosting an exhibition of designs by Azzedine Alaïa that in terms of setting is among the most spectacular yet.
At the opening night on Thursday, 21 looks were unveiled in the Galleria degli Arazzi of the storied Palazzo Clerici, under spectacular frescoes by 18th-century artist Giambattista Tiepolo.
Guests including Silvia Venturini Fendi, Delfina Delettrez, Fausto Puglisi, Alberta Ferretti, Anna Molinari, Caroline Vreeland, Giuseppe Zanotti and Carlo Capasa joined Alaïa’s partner Christoph von Weyhe and close friend Carla Sozzani at the event.
Olivier Saillard, the fashion historian who curated the show, said seeing the outfits in the gilded reception room, which also features tapestries and a wood marquetry floor, cast them in a fresh light.
“There are clothes I have handled dozens of times, and for example this little white dress, I think, looks a lot more alive here,” he said, pointing to a short Grecian-style draped jersey dress.
“It’s the first time that Azzedine Alaïa is the subject of an exhibition in Milan. It’s like a little appetizer in the hope of perhaps doing something bigger one day,” he added.
Supported by the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation and Vogue Italia, in partnership with Place Vendôme Qatar, “Azzedine Alaïa Couture

TAKING FLIGHT–Shoes from Allbirds, the Leonardo DiCaprio-backed sustainable brand have quickly morphed into a consumer favorite. Now via a partnership with Air New Zealand, the buzzy brand has ventured into a different kind of accessory, producing an in-flight eye mask for the first time.
Dubbed ‘the Bird Mask’ the travel accessory is made out of ZQ-certified New Zealand merino wool and castor bean oil-based foam. It includes molded eye indentations which allow for natural eye movement during sleep, and a birdlike beak to act as a seal against the face to block out light.
Air New Zealand, known for its quirky celebrity-filled flight safety videos, has made the mask available on board the business premier cabin on selected North American routes throughout October, including the airline’s service between Los Angeles and London.
“By putting our heads together we’ve created a product our customers will truly value and re-use again and again, while also benefitting New Zealand’s international brand awareness,” said Air New Zealand chief marketing & customer officer Mike Tod.
“We jumped at the chance to work with Air New Zealand, a brand that similarly prioritises thoughtful design and customer experience,” said Allbirds co-founder Tim Brown. “By bringing our comfort expertise to the Bird Mask, we’ve been able to create
It was movie night in Milan, with Moncler Genius screening a series of films to showcase a second round of collections from its guest designers and brands on Wednesday night, including Simone Rocha, Craig Green and Noir.
The short videos were projected onto screens or walls in the stylishly rough industrial space across from Fondazione Prada — and the mood was arty and fun. Rocha’s film featured a cast of models, hats wrapped in veils, wearing her techno-Victorian designs and frolicking in the grass or tilling the soil wearing her flower-embellished dresses and apron styles.
The video had a “Picnic at Hanging Rock” feel and was directed by Tyler Mitchell. Rocha said during the event that she wanted the video to have a “dystopian” feel and to show the two different sides to the collection, which featured natural and man-made fabrics such as lightweight nylon, cotton poplin, vinyl and plastic.
“I also wanted to show the models at work and at play, tending and pruning the garden on one screen, and having fun on the other,” Rocha said during the cocktail party in the courtyard of the venue.
Green brought his childlike tent-cum-kite constructions, which appeared in his fall 2018 runway show earlier this
LONDON — Camille Charrière has been a pioneer of blogging platforms and social media from the get-go. But as the influencer market becomes more and more saturated, she has been experimenting with ways to cultivate her voice and shine a spotlight on behind-the-scenes stories that often get forgotten in the fast-paced world of Instagram.
Her first project came in the form of the podcast “Fashion No Filter,” hosted alongside the writer and fellow influencer Monica Ainley. The duo readily took on the challenge of producing in-depth discussions about fashion by stripping away the visuals and encouraging their listeners to flex their imagination muscles. The result was a series of humorous audios that discussed topics ranging from sustainability to the street-style phenomenon and feminism, with the likes of Roksanda Ilincic, Caroline de Maigret and Chloé president Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye taking part.
Building on the success of the podcast, Ainley and Charrière went on to produce a documentary with French TV channel Paris Premier that will make its debut on Sunday and examine all things style and fashion through a tongue-in-cheek compare-and-contrast exercise of the British and French fashion capitals.
Here Charrière, who is already plotting season two of “Fashion No Filter” and more

Somewhere in your office, your posse, maybe even your family, you know the guy. The guy who wakes up every morning to a dresser drawer laid out like the sartorial equivalent of a ’50s suburb: Rows and rows of the exact same pair of socks. Don’t be that guy. Not when bringing a little adventure to your stride is as easy as a subscription to NextSock, which sends cozy, VIP-quality socks to your door in a variety of random patterns and styles. That’s two pairs a month in plaids, polka-dots, argyles or Christmas-sweater quirky—anything but tidy-whites or business blacks.
Take a cue from colorful sock rockers like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jon Hamm or Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Or ask any stylist: Whether it’s between jeans and sneakers or khakis and wingtips, that inch or two of fabric is your license to get a little crazy in a sly, subtle way. You’d be crazy not to.
Especially now, when a three-month subscription to NextSock is 60% off the regular price of $ 60. In other words, $ 24, shipping included—just $ 4 a pair, $ 2 a sock or (potentially) eight cents per argyle diamond. However you cut it, it’s a cheap way to turn that sock drawer into a treasure chest.
The post This Subscription Box Is the Best Way to Ace Your Sock Game appeared first on Men's Journal.
PRESSING ON: Six months after the death of designer Amsale Aberra, the namesake company is moving forward with a new retail concept geared toward bridesmaids.
Starting Sept. 24, bridal parties can schedule appointments at the Amsale creative studio in New York’s garment district. Shoppers will find The Bridal Party at Amsale. The direct-to-consumer approach will give customers a full range of colors, fabrications, sizes, silhouettes and styles of both the Amsale and Nouvelle Amsale Bridesmaids collections. In step with the ever-increasing experiential options at retail, shoppers will have a behind-the-scenes view of the company’s Midtown design studio.
Neil Brown, chief executive officer of Amsale, said the introduction of The Bridal Party at Amsale is a “natural progression” for the brand as the retail landscape is changing. To that end, the way that brides and bridesmaids shop for dresses has “significantly shifted,” he said.
The more personalized shopping experience is designed to play up the attention to detail. There are more than 200 styles from both the Amsale and Nouvelle Amsale Bridesmaids collections. Clients will be encouraged to leaf through the numerous styles and try on different looks and take a close look at the fit of their selections.

Annakiki may not be a household name, but Chinese designer Anna Yang clearly has the ear of the creative set.
Having dressed Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy in a metallic ruffled dress for the Wearable Art Gala earlier this year, Yang has found another fan in British singer Ebony Bones, who attended the label’s spring show in Milan.
“It’s really nice to support female designers, and I think it’s intriguing that she’s done so well in Europe and she’s not European. It’s definitely a juxtaposition of different cultures: East meets West, and very fun as well,” said Bones, who wore Annakiki on the cover of her critically acclaimed recent album “Nephilim.”
The inspiration flows both ways. Yang’s spring collection, titled “Fashion Glitch,” channeled her love of electronic music with club-kid gear in shiny fabrics and fluo shades.
This was fashion for the Instagram age: think an acid green liquid-effect biker jacket with ruffled mariachi sleeves, or a holographic vinyl windbreaker and matching Bermuda shorts. The designer used studs and crystal beads to bedazzle everything from cut-off denim shorts to cropped jackets and roomy coats.
The Vegas vibe extended to an oversized black suit with rows of rhinestones in lieu of pinstripes. It made for an irreverent
MILAN — Picking up from a few looks teased in February on the fall runway, Fendi is rolling out a capsule collection based on the Fendi/Fila logo created by Instagram artist @hey_reilly. Called Fendi Mania, the capsule will hit stores on Oct. 16 with special events planned for New York, Beverly Hills, Paris, London, Moscow, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo and Kuwait.
“We are obsessed with Fendi and we want to share this obsession,” said chief executive officer Serge Brunschwig with a laugh. “The mania started with the fall show, but now it’s a more expansive and important capsule targeting men, women and children [ages three to 12], all together for the first time.”
Brunschwig, who joined Fendi in February from Dior Homme, succeeding Pietro Beccari, said that after the FF Reloaded project and the brand’s revisitation of the FF logo, Mania was “an interesting way to express the Fendi identity. It’s a very luxurious collection, very creative and with plenty of our fur.”
The bold Fendi Mania logo appears in two color combinations, red with blue and yellow with white, also with graphic diagonal stripes and is combined with the FF logo on precious mink coats and reversible bombers. The Fendi Mania logo also
