Blac Chyna’s touting of a skin lightening beauty product is just a cash grab … because she allegedly doesn’t even use the stuff. Sources close to Chyna tell TMZ … despite her partnership with Whitenicious by Dencia to roll out her “Whitenicious X…
FIGHTING THE FAKERS: Compagnie Financière Richemont has become the latest international corporation to join Alibaba’s Anti-Counterfeiting Alliance, which aims to protect intellectual property rights on the e-commerce giant’s platforms.
Alibaba said this week that Richemont is now among 115 members from 16 countries and regions that are part of the AACA. Richemont said it would share its technology, expertise and other information to support the Alliance’s efforts.
Richemont has long been an anti-counterfeit crusader, with a robust in-house legal team that has gone after watch and jewelry counterfeiters and the sales platforms that sell their goods.
Richemont, New Balance, General Motors and McDonald’s, are the latest global brands to join the AACA, according to Alibaba. The alliance’s membership has more than tripled from the original 30 founding brands at its launch in 2017.
Alibaba said it works with brand partners to find and eliminate fakes at their source. In the luxury sector, Alibaba and Louis Vuitton — one of the first members of AACA — conducted an offline investigation that resulted in the seizure in May of approximately $ 14.4 million worth of counterfeit goods.
“The protection of intellectual property rights requires all stakeholders to work closely together and share their expertise. The AACA will continue its efforts to establish
“I started from cuddling people,” designer Moon Choi unexpectedly remarked. “I want to make clothing that comforts one’s life because clothing is the one thing that touches the skin first.” Choi embraced her first pre-fall collection quite literally, with modernly tweaked tailored garments that very subtly mimicked the gestures of cuddling. One of the key pieces included an overlapped double-breasted jacket with sashes that could be criss-crossed and buttoned on opposite sides, offered both long and short. “Like someone is holding you,” Choi explained. Blazers and trousers were given detachable fabric sashes that could be buttoned inside or outside a row of buttons on the garments to distort their shape as if the wearer’s clothing was being bunched during a hug.
As always, Choi’s garments were designed to be defined not by gender, but by size and after last season’s introduction of lighter materials and dresses, Choi returned to her roots with a fall-based, tailored lineup with eccentric touches that lean more refined than kitschy. “Tailoring is center to design methodology because I think it’s very attractive. It has very limited silhouettes, but in this silhouette, I can make a balance between my skills and my creativities,” she stated. The rest
The much ballyhooed Calvin Klein-Raf Simons marriage has ended in divorce — and now observers wonder what’s next for the iconic American fashion brand, and whether it can flourish without the “halo” of a designer collection.
As reported, the tie-up between Klein and Simons came to an abrupt — but not unexpected — end Friday night when Calvin Klein Inc. sent out a terse press release at 6:17 p.m., right before the Christmas holiday weekend, stating the company and Simons, who was chief creative officer, had “amicably decided to part ways.” The statement said that Klein has decided on a new brand direction which differs from Simons’ creative vision — but provided no details on what that new direction is.
Calvin Klein will not be having a fashion show during New York Fashion Week in February (it had been scheduled for Feb. 12 at 8 p.m.), and the company will now have to figure out how to move forward after the pricey, multimillion dollar experiment with Simons went bust after a mere 28 months, and eight months before the end of a three-year deal with the Belgian designer.
PVH Corp., parent company of Calvin Klein, invested between $ 60 million and $ 70 million in

TOKYO — Fashion-show producer Etienne Russo was indicted in Japan on Friday on charges of cannabis smuggling after being arrested weeks prior, according to reports by Japanese media.
Customs officials at Narita Airport outside of Tokyo are said to have found a liquid that they believe was extracted from cannabis, packed in Russo’s luggage. The founder of Villa Eugénie entered the country on Nov. 30 for the Dior men’s pre-fall fashion show that was held in Tokyo. He is said to have been seen at the show, but has been in custody since early December.
Russo and his event production firm Villa Eugénie are popular among luxury brands, having worked on shows not only for Dior but also for brands including Hermes, Thom Browne and Dries Van Noten. He makes a brief appearance in the new Netfilx series “7 Days Out” documenting preparations for a Chanel couture show.
Japan has very strict drug control laws, with zero tolerance and tough penalties for offenders. Use and possession of cannabis is punishable by up to five years’ imprisonment and a fine, whereas cultivation, sale and transport are punishable by up to 7 to 10 years in prison and a fine.
Russo will be held
Hussein Chalayan’s collection was filled with beautifully constructed clothes that would fit into any luxury wardrobe: There were asymmetric, lightly draped dresses in striped jersey or dogtooth fabrics; roomy trousers with side pleats or appliquéd panels lightly hanging on the sides; separates in a colorful forest print painted in a Chinese style, and skirts made voluminous with deep, contrasting pleats.
Apart from being a master at draping and creating unique constructions, Chalayan is also curious — and a deep thinker. This season he let his imagination run loose, unpicking the concept of pretending. Every drape, pleat and layer in the new range was informed by his philosophical interpretation of what it means to try to be someone else.
Turning the idea on its head, Chalayan bypassed all the negativity and instead focused on pretending as a catalyst to the imagination or “a medium that can healthily lift us away from our reality, adding richness to the monotony of our lives.” He also broke down the word pre-tension, discovering another alternative meaning of “applying tension to an object before use, to make it stronger.”
Chalayan managed to turn all of that abstraction into reality with clothes inspired by activities that can take the human body away from its
TAX BREAK: Despite their recent scandal in China, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have reason to celebrate the holidays: The designers have been cleared of tax evasion charges also at a fiscal level.
While Dolce and Gabbana were acquitted in 2014 at a penal level at the end of seven years of legal troubles — which included an acquittal from charges of fraud from a judge at the preliminary hearing level in 2011, a reversal at a higher court, new charges of tax evasion and two trials at lower court — fiscally in Italy the issue was not resolved and meant they could be hit by a fine by the tax commission. Case in point, in March 2013, Italy’s tax commission fined the designers 343.4 million euros, plus interest.
The fine by the tax commission is separate from the tax evasion trials, but both stem from the same accusations put forward by Italy’s Internal Revenue Agency of omitted and unfaithful earnings declarations.
The designers were charged with alleged tax evasion totaling 416 million euros related to the 2004 sale of the Dolce & Gabbana and D&G brands to the designers’ Luxembourg-based holding company, Gado Srl. The Italian tax police reportedly considered Gado essentially a

DEEPER WATERS: Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow label continues to broaden its assortment, now looking to swim for its next move.
The business, in conjunction with retailer Revolve, has launched a collection of swimwear and ready-to-wear under the House of Harlow 1960 x Revolve label. It’s the first drop, totaling some 16 pieces, of several planned for rollout across January, February, April and May.
“Swim is a strong category for Revolve definitely with the top three peak months, so it just made sense for the progression of the brand,” Richie said. “We, last resort, came out with great footwear styles so this is more about completing that story.”
The range is priced from $ 68 to $ 198 and is being sold exclusively through Revolve.
The assortment is in keeping with the design aesthetic Richie’s built House of Harlow on, with neutral colors in addition to knot detailing, stripes and crochet.
“It’s still very House of Harlow, really beautiful cover-ups to go with the swimwear so that it can transition into ready-to-wear,” Richie said.
Teaming with Revolve has helped on the back end in terms of designing House of Harlow for the market, Richie said. She cited the multibrand e-commerce company’s access to consumer data as an example
Siblings Camilla Freeman-Topper and Marc Freeman sought to explore the idea of human connection and intimacy for pre-fall. In a positive note, that meant injecting clothes with comfort, through both cozy fabric selection and design. There were silhouettes that cocooned and wrapped the body, like a transparent Lurex knit top and roomy, angora wool windowpane coat with detachable scarf to bundle up in. Sporty zip-up bodysuits and sweaters with a casual element rounded out wardrobe enhancers essential for layering.
A hallmark of the brand is approachable, easy chic, found namely in empowered tailoring. A plaid coat cut on the bias was a striking example of understated luxury for both its contouring effect and easy wear. A velvet herringbone blazer featured strong, accentuated shoulders in a great proposition for power suiting. They played to house codes of harmonious contrasts by offering fluid evening dresses to offset structured tailoring. There was an effortlessness to a billowy sheer red dress with great movement, and playfulness in the fringe framing an hourglass shape to a camel dress.
Freeman-Topper made a point to highlight the brand’s seasonless appeal. “I’ve always said Camilla and Marc is forever,” she said on a call from Australia, adding: “We have pieces
Calvin Klein Inc. and Raf Simons said Friday night that Simons is leaving his post as chief creative officer.
Both parties have amicably decided to part ways after Klein decided on a new brand direction which differs from Simons’ creative vision.
Calvin Klein will not show during New York Fashion Week in February.
The news confirms WWD reports of growing tension between Calvin Klein executives and Simons.
According to sources, the company decided in September to reduce some of Simons’ responsibilities and wanted him to agree to a new contract with fewer responsibilities. Sources said Klein decided certain areas of the business such as store design, visual merchandising, e-commerce, public relations and communications, and corporate social responsibility would report to Marie Gulin-Merle, chief marketing officer, rather than Simons, who had been given total responsibility for all creative areas when he joined in August 2016.
In late November, Emanuel Chirico, chairman and chief executive officer of PVH Corp., parent company of Calvin Klein, said in rather blunt terms on the company’s earnings call that the reimagined Calvin Klein – under Simons’ direction – is not working. He said the collection, renamed 205W39NYC, needed to become more commercial and that investments in the collection and advertising would be

It’s official — the New York City Council has approved rezoning of Manhattan’s Garment District.
After decades of wrangling and dispute among city officials, landlords, designers and long-term tenants — the sometimes warring parties have come to a truce. Thursday’s landmark vote frees up parameters that were put in place in 1987. Since that time under Mayor Ed Koch’s administration, which established the district, landlords in Manhattan’s Garment District have been required to add a square foot of garment space for every square foot removed for some other use.
Garment District loyalists lobbied for a building earmarked for garment manufacturing, a tax-incentive program to enlist more owners and to provide tools to upgrade the industry and train workers for long-term survival of the garment center’s nucleus. Community Boards Four and Five, Pratt Center for Community Development, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, the Design Trust for Public Space and The Municipal Art Society, have been pushing for Garment Center preservation.
The city’s Economic Development Corp. and the Garment District Alliance Business Improvement District, which more or less covers the area bordered by 35th to 41st Streets and Fifth to Ninth Avenues, have been behind the rezoning, which they feel would benefit the
Designer Stacey Bendet is all about emotional clothing. It’s what drives her design process, which has undertones of female empowerment. It also drove a new direction in the look book shoot to mirror videos she’s made recently that bring her clothes to life. She shot against a black backdrop to allow the clothes to really pop. Her theme for the season, after all, was a blend of pop art, Twiggy and the swinging Sixties, but brought into modern day with her signature thread of eclectic confidence.
The mixed prints here were the most striking, and ranged from a rainbow of snake prints on an accordion pleat dress to a wicked mash-up of florals, animal prints, mod checks and stripes in an easy wrap gown. She extracted the florals to create a burnout fabric, which she pieced together into a flowy colorful dress. She highlighted colorblocking elsewhere with a great tailored plaid trench and matching miniskirt.
The collection maintained an energetic tone that worked for a number occasions. A lightweight black-and-white plaid coat for day, sexy snakeskin burnout separates and saturated monochromatic looks for the office, or a patchwork denim jacket that read “love more” and “game changer” to keep it cool while
If you’re looking for a last-minute gift, or for something to hunker down with during holiday travels, consider “Nothing Is Lost,” the compelling anthology of essays by Ingrid Sischy, published last month by Alfred A. Knopf.
The title comes from Henry James — “Try to be one of the people on whom nothing is lost” — and was chosen by Ingrid’s wife and longtime career partner in editorial brilliance, Sandy Brant, who is also the book’s editor.
Nothing was lost on Ingrid. Everyone who knew her knows that. Ingrid was a keen cultural participant, observer, critic. Her writing is as she was as a person — learned, deeply insightful but laced with humor, her strong opinions tinged with tolerance for the human condition. Ingrid really got to know her subjects. In the collection of 35 pieces, her intelligence, breadth of knowledge and lack of pomposity are on full display. The essays were published beginning in 1989 and through to 2015, the year of her death, many in The New Yorker, Vanity Fair and The New York Times, although there are pieces from other sources as well, such as an introduction of her dear friend Karl Lagerfeld when he was honored at the

A well-placed zipper on a leather jacket or the lush fur lining inside a parka can transform a utilitarian piece of clothing into something that you’ll want to pair with everything in your wardrobe.

Determined not to be defeated by New Zealand’s isolation — and before she had even launched her brand — emerging Auckland-based designer Courtney Pellow flew to New York earlier this year to find a showroom. Zannick Studio took her on and she didn’t have to wait long to get noticed.
In September, Gigi Hadid attracted international media attention when she stepped out at Milan Fashion Week in a pair of the designer’s eye-catching patchwork Up-Cycled Sock Pants.
Handmade from faulty wool socks discarded by a New Zealand manufacturer and retailing on Pellow’s web store for 1,196 New Zealand dollars or $ 821 at current exchange, the pants were among several pieces from the designer’s debut collection that were loaned to Hadid’s stylist.
A day later, Hadid was photographed again in another Courtney Pellow style: the White Camo Cropped Jean, a relaxed-fit, mid-rise jean in a camouflage print with contrast denim waistband and patch pockets.
While upcycling accounts for just 20 percent of Pellow’s production, sustainability is front of mind for the Auckland University of Technology graduate, who is using organic cotton in her T-shirts.
Other repurposed products include the Up-Cycled Sock Jumper and a range of Bush Shirts crafted from vintage wool blankets that Pellow sources from
Naeem Khan lives in a world of opulence. Elaborately embroidered gowns, as in one this season with captivating floral appliqué, and drama, like red and navy iterations of a bridal jumpsuit with overskirt, factor heavily into his seasonal offerings. But with jumpsuits and short flirty dresses accounting for 40 percent of his bridal business, Khan is aware of a want for ease. His previous endeavors from spring and resort, especially, have focused on separates and an approachable glamour for a younger clientele.
He continued that narrative for pre-fall, and the range of occasions was quite vast. For girls not quite ready for a long-term commitment, Khan offered sheer beaded jackets and delicate yet formal sweaters that easily transitioned day-to-night for multiple wear opportunity. Silhouettes remained relaxed, as in sequined or drawstring pants with skin-baring side strips that maintained an element of allure. He offered new bold jungle and tropical prints for summer destinations, too, cut into lightweight, packable dresses and a body-curving caftan. The real standouts here were minimalistic dresses influenced by his time at Halston, including sequin knit dresses that form like liquid on the body and a new version of a caftan in seductive red that’s fitted in front
Determined to be a business that is on board with the New Zealand government’s plan to be a carbon-zero country by 2050, Maggie Marilyn is trying to do its part on a variety of levels. The company’s namesake said, “As a proudly New Zealand-made business, we are acutely aware that our location means shipping materials further because of our geographical isolation. We are now starting our journey to learn, understand and, therefore, be able to calculate our carbon footprint. It is our goal to reduce this as much as possible and have engaged outside experts to enable us to carry out this goal.”
Key sustainability achievement of 2018: It has been a really exciting second year in business for Maggie Marilyn. We have just converted all of our dispatch plastic packaging to organic compostable packaging sourced from a local New Zealand company. This packaging is made from cassava root. It doesn’t produce harmful or long-lasting microplastic particles or leave any chemical trace elements following degradation in the soil, rivers, sea or air. We have also for the past four months been writing our sustainability strategy to align with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

Sears Holdings Corp. detailed the hefty cost of closing 142 stores in a regulatory filing Tuesday. The store closures were revealed on Oct. 15 when the company filed its voluntary Chapter 11 petition for bankruptcy court protection.
Sears said it expects to “incur charges of $ 443 million” in total costs to shutter the stores. That includes $ 81 million in markdowns, $ 9 million in severance costs, $ 335 million in lease termination costs, $ 12 million in other charges and $ 6 million in depreciation in the third and fourth quarters.
Since the bankruptcy filing, Sears has tagged an additional 40 doors for closure.
The retailer, which operates under the Sears and Kmart nameplates, is trying to find a buyer for the company as a going concern. So far its chairman Edward S. Lampert, through his hedge fund ESL Investments, has offered a nonbinding bid of $ 4.6 billion for the assets. If accepted, that offer would in effect constitute Sears’s exit plan from bankruptcy. It is not clear any other party will submit a going-concern offer for the company. Liquidators are expected to submit offers, but those are geared toward winding the business down.
The company’s rich archives, the vivid colors of 16th-century painter Bronzino, whose paintings are on show at the Galleria degli Uffizi in Florence, as well as the effortless sartorial elegance of iconic men, including Mick Jagger and John Kennedy Jr., served as inspiration for the Salvatore Ferragamo women’s and men’s pre-fall collection.
During a walk-through at the company’s Milanese headquarters, women’s creative director Paul Andrew and men’s design director Guillaume Meilland put the focus on the coherent attitude running through the women’s and men’s looks. These actually exuded the same luxurious elegance, revealing the high-end craftsmanship deeply rooted in the brand’s heritage.
Taking a step back from the dark tones of the last few collections, the designers played with a lighter, more lively color palette, including bright green, orange, red and ice gray. Constructions were also softened to welcome a sense of relaxed sophistication. For example, upscale padded coats were crafted from silky fabrics, men’s shearling and leather jackets and women’s suede trenchcoats were cut in clean, lean silhouettes, while chic suits revealed a deconstructed approach.
Knitwear took center stage with precious plissé skirts, dresses showing built-in ties to wrap around the neck and embroidered cashmere sweaters. Archival prints were revamped included the
The next New York Fashion Week will see a dual-gender Tom Ford show bridge the official men’s and women’s calendars.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America released a preliminary schedule Tuesday night that includes Ford at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6, the last of the three-day men’s-specific schedule. His show will be co-ed, however.
In addition, Joseph Abboud will be showing at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 4, followed by Todd Snyder at 8:00 that night. Other known names on the men’s roster are Robert Geller who will show on Tuesday, Feb. 5, at 7:00 p.m., and Ovadia & Sons who will show an hour later that night. Tuesday will also see shows from Dyne, N. Hoolywood, Landlord and Linder.
As reported, a shift in dates by Project in Las Vegas means that the runway shows will overlap with the men’s trade shows this time. Project, Liberty and Agenda will hold their shows Feb. 5–7.
As far as the women’s shows are concerned, Ralph Lauren will kick off the week at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 7, and Marc Jacobs will end the week on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 6:00 p.m.

Luxury handbag resale firm Rebag has opened its fifth store in the Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center mall.
The store in downtown Manhattan at 185 Greenwich Street represents the handbag firm’s first mall location. It is also its third New York City site. Two other stores were opened earlier this year on the West Coast in Los Angeles, one in Beverly Hills and the other in Melrose Place. The Madison Avenue store in midtown Manhattan opened earlier this year, as well. The first store in SoHo was opened last fall as a pop-up, then was converted to a permanent location, also earlier this year.
Rebag’s neighbors in the Westfield center mall include Dior Beauty, Breitling, mattress firm Casper and the Apple Store. The store features Rebag’s signature Rebag Bar, where consumers can check in with their handbags and get an estimate on their value. Also a feature in the store is the company’s Hermès Birkin Wall, which shows all available Birkin bags at the store.
Following the opening at Oculus, Rebag will start exploring growth and traffic at U.S. mall sites.
Charles Gorra, founder and chief executive officer of Rebag, said of his firm’s goal of opening up more mall locations: “We found
“Effortless femininity that reflects the brand’s signature, modern nomadic aesthetic infused by Seventies interior design inspiration. I’m really attracted to the Seventies interiors and also the Seventies architecture,” Budapest-based Nanushka designer Sandra Sandor said of her vast pre-fall collection, pointing to Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill and Mexican artist Javier Senosiain. The collection leaned more Bofill than Senosiain with clean lines and an earth tone palette but the largest inspiration came from Seventies-inspired interiors and upholstery. For instance, velvet puffed bags and vegan leather garments such as a quilted, updated version of its Hude puffer jacket embodied a comfortable yet clean upholstery. Prints were also inspired by vintage duvets: a washed floral tank top and underlayer set or new snake print on a button-up shirt and skirt combination and updated puffer jacket.
The nomadic aesthetic — “the essence of the Nanushka philosophy” — that is rooted in the brand’s Hungarian roots flowed through in relaxed, elongated silhouettes such as long sweaters piled over skirts or daydresses with Western hints on their pockets and collars. Sandor also used tonal, fabric covered rope and tie-techniques to emphasize the female figure. There were wrapped silk dresses as well as front-tie napa leather offerings. Accessories included a

Sporting facial hair in the office is commonplace. But now it’s more and more acceptable to have a long, unruly beard… within reason. Guys like Jason Momoa are living proof that even a scraggly beard can look sharp.
But how do you pull it off? What’s the difference between Momoa’s beard, and one that just looks lazy and untended to? Well, it’s the tending to that makes all the difference. The best-looking and healthiest long beards are nourished and trimmed along the way.
First Things First
First and foremost, says Shaffer, you’ve got to clean up the border of your beard. That’s the biggest secret to an intentionally scraggly beard: The perimeter is clean-cut, so it truly looks intentional.
“Attending to a few seemingly small details can mean the difference between a rugged, masculine appearance and a neglectful, lazy one,” he explains.
To do this, Shaffer says to keep the mustache trimmed above your lip, and to mind both the cheeks and neck. This will differ in how it manifests itself on each guy, depending on how high the hair grows on your cheeks, and how full it is on both the neck and face. However, the key is clean, defined lines. More guidance on trimming below.
Beard Care Regimen
With those clean lines drawn, here are the at-home steps you can take to ensure your scraggly beard draws favorable glances instead of quizzical stares. It mostly boils down to a healthy regimen.
1. Cleanse: Use a daily cleanser or beard wash to scrub your whiskers every day. Shaffer says to avoid products that use sulfates (like sodium laureate sulfate, SLS), since these can strip the natural hydration from your skin. The oil in your skin helps keep your beard soft and healthy, and sulfates will compromise that. Instead, the aim here is to wash away grime, debris, and excess oil. Pay particularly close attention to the area around your mouth, says Shaffer, since oil (and even food particles) can often collect in there.
2. Hydrate: Just like your skin and the hair on your head, a beard needs to stay hydrated in order to be healthy. The skin underneath your beard needs extra attention since it’s harder to reach with your standard moisturizer application.
“Your daily face moisturizer should be non-comedogenic,” says Shaffer. “This means it won’t clog your pores. And it should have broad-spectrum SPF (to shield from both types of harmful UV rays).”
Yes, you can apply your daily moisturizer right on top of your beard. This will protect it from the same damaging UV rays that harm your skin.
As an alternative, you can warm a few drops of beard oil in your palms and run them through your beard. The oil absorbs quickly, and gives the beard a healthy, nourishing luster. Shaffer particularly prescribes beard oil to guys who are just starting to grow their beard, since it’s especially helpful in preventing beard itch.
“Look for one with jojoba oil, which is technically not an oil, but a wax ester,” says Shaffer. “Jojoba structurally resembles sebum, the natural oil your body produces, which makes it a great candidate for moisturizing a beard.”
3. Comb: By combing your beard, you help distribute the natural oil (or any applied oils) throughout the entire beard, which will ensure the ends of your long, messy mane get as much nourishment as the shaft. If not, you’ll get lots of split ends, and notice it’s suddenly dry and brittle.
Combing your beard also exfoliates the skin under your whiskers, extracts loose hairs, coaches everything into its prime style position, and even stimulates natural oil production, which keeps everything soft and nourished. Do this nightly before bed (even if it seems silly to comb your beard when nobody is going to see it), or immediately after applying beard oil.
5. Style: Just as tousled “surfer hair” is a hairstyle on guys, a scraggly finish is also a beard style. That means you need to apply some product to hold it in place—even if “in place” means “all over the place”. Sometimes beard oil will do the trick, but it’s likely you’ll want some beard balm at the ready, too. For a large beard, just warm up a dime size amount in your hands, then massage it down from your cheeks and throughout your beard. You can then sculpt the beard as you like, bunching it as you please.
4. Trim: In order to clean up your neck and cheeks, you’ll need the following, says Shaffer: a mirror, good lighting, grooming scissors, a fine-tooth comb, an electric trimmer, and a knack for geometry. Here’s what to do.
How to Trim a Scraggly Beard
Line up your mustache: Place a fine-tooth comb diagonally just above your upper lip, keeping it parallel to the line of your mouth.
“With a pair of grooming scissors, cut the hairs that are poking out of the bottom of the comb,”Shaffer says.
Clean up your cheek line: Next, place the comb on the diagonal of your cheek, using anchor points to get your preferred angle. Again, this might look different on every guy.
“I like to use the point where my ear attaches to my head as point ‘A’, and the corner of my mouth as point ‘B’,” says Shaffer. “Using the trimmer, cut the hair above the comb, and don’t go too low here, since we’re looking for a subtle cleanup, not a full-on manicure.”
Clean up your neck line: Imagine a ‘U’ shape from the back of both ears that meets in the middle at a point above your Adam’s apple—roughly one inch above it. You want to shave everything below this line. Or, as Shaffer wisely lays out, you can also have your barber define the line for you, then shave below it every 2-3 days so you never lose track of your neckline.
Snip the strays: Use the beard scissors to snip at anything that gets more scraggly than you like. For your style, you can stand an errant hair or two, but you may need to trim the hedges along the way. The best way to manage this might be to sculpt the beard into a neat shape, as if you wanted it to be cleaned up. Snip any strays that stand out of line here. Then you can tousle and scraggle it up as much as you like from here.

In the U.S., the Council of Fashion Designers of America has taken up the mantle of the United Nations’ call for a need for the fashion industry to move on its global mandate on sustainability.
Earlier this year, the CFDA, considered a non-governmental organization, launched a sustainability-centered resource hub to provide members, educators and the professional community with open-access resources pertaining specifically to the fashion business. The NGO is also paying particular attention to professional development, and helping early-stage brands build businesses with a sustainability focus.
Among the informational options set for launch on Jan. 14 on the CFDA platform is a Materials Index that contains a directory of materials, including fiber information with descriptions. Another is a Sustainability Directory, a resource hub that connects fashion designers, companies and students with resources that include organizations and tools. There is also a Guide to Sustainable Strategies that’s meant as an overview to help members create, meet and exceed their sustainability goals. The Guide also contains case studies of members on their sustainability journey. And there’s the Sustainable Strategies Toolkit that maps and frames out the sustainability priorities so brands have access to diagnostics for their use, as well as a step-by-step guide on
Inspired by a post-World War I quote from curator Alistair O’Neill, “Women had gotten used to wearing their husbands’ cardigans,” Fran Stringer patched together feminine and masculine silhouettes for this cozy, laid-back collection.
Oversized knitwear was worn over flowy knitted trousers, while other knits included a cable-knit granddad-style cardigan and a twin set in the form of a khaki brown sweater and asymmetric skirt with ribbing.
Pringle of Scotland Pre-Fall 2019
Stringer also adopted a “make do and mend” attitude. Classic cable-knit and intarsia argyle styles were reworked and patched together and whipped into a multicolored boxy jumper and a midi dress in black and green with a high neck.
Details on other knits included ruffle cuffs and necklines and vintage-looking buttons on oversized cardigans. An outfit composed of a roomy, acid green twin set and cargo-style military trousers with a high waist looked cool and chic.
STARTING BLOCKS: LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton has opened applications for the sixth edition of its LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers.
Candidates have until Feb. 4 to submit their applications on the web site lvmhprize.com, the French luxury conglomerate said on Monday. The winner, decided by a jury including LVMH’s top designers, will walk away with a cash prize of 300,000 euros plus a year of coaching from experts at LVMH.
Launched in 2013 and spearheaded by Delphine Arnault, second-in-command at Louis Vuitton and a key talent scout at the luxury group her family controls, the prize is open to designers under age 40 who have presented and sold at least two collections of women’s, men’s or unisex ready-to-wear.
The past five winners of the main prize are Doublet, Marine Serre, Grace Wales Bonner, Marques’Almeida and Thomas Tait, and the award has also boosted the careers of its runner-up special-prize winners: Rokh, Kozaburo Akasaka, Vejas, Jacquemus, Hood by Air and Miuniku.
LVMH also rewards three graduates from fashion schools. They will each receive 10,000 euros and will join one of the group’s houses for one year.
Last year’s edition drew 1,300 applications from 90 countries, with 20 semi-finalists invited to show their work during Paris Fashion Week in

SHOW BUSINESS: Big acts missing from the official schedule of Paris Men’s Week in January will include Alexander McQueen. The house plans to switch to a series of intimate events as its new presentation format, WWD has learned. The first will take place in London in May for the fall 2019 season. “Intrinsically connected to the bespoke tailoring heritage of Alexander McQueen men’s wear, these events will be central to the evolution of the house’s commitment to the championing of creativity, craftsmanship and innovation,” the brand said. The house moved to showing in Paris in June 2017 after having shown by appointment in Milan and London in previous seasons.
As expected, Lanvin, which recently parted ways with its men’s creative director Lucas Ossendrijver, is also missing from the lineup, according to the Chambre Syndicale which released its provisional schedule for the week on Friday.
Maison Margiela will also sit out the Paris men’s shows this season as it undergoes a strategic review under chief executive officer Riccardo Bellini, who joined the company in March. The house is believed to be aligning its men’s ready-to-wear collection more closely with its women’s line and Artisanal couture collection. Maison Margiela creative director John Galliano oversees
Alice Temperley has been rethinking her business structure and embracing change — the ultimate aim being to sharpen her focus and offer smaller, but better-targeted collections.
Her latest pre-fall range offers a taste of her renewed vision for the brand: Her flair for color, pattern and all things feminine and sequined remain intact, but she is embracing a more laid-back mood and adding a heftier dose of daywear into the mix.
It came in the form of chic shirtdresses, loose tailoring and silk kimono jackets, drawing on the designer’s love of Japanese design and culture.
She also looked to Eastern woodblock prints and Japanese graphic designer Tadanori Yokoo’s posters and matchboxes to inspire the season’s prints. They were loosely translated in the form of geometric patterns on loose tailored pieces or gold flame patterns featured on silk lamé dresses.
One silk lamé dress came in a bright chartreuse shade and a wrap silhouette. The way it flowed around the body and its ability to transition from day to night seemed to encapsulate Temperley’s new direction and the potential of the brand in daywear.
The designer also wanted to add a stronger sense of ease in the range’s eveningwear section, which remains key nevertheless: Sequins were
Facing online accusations that animal-like figurines and charms in its stores and windows evoke blackface, Prada Group issued a statement saying it “abhors racist imagery” and vowed to withdraw them from “display and circulation.”
In a Facebook post, Chinyere Ezie, a civil rights lawyer, said the sight of the figurines in the Italian brand’s store in New York’s SoHo district had her “shaking with anger,” describing “racist and denigrating #blackface imagery” and “Sambo like imagery.”
Ezie noted she had just returned from a visit to the National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, taking in an exhibit on blackface.
“History cannot continue to repeat itself. Black America deserves better. And we demand better,” she wrote in her post, which got picked up by other blogs. “Shame on you Prada.”
In a statement to WWD, Prada said the figures are “fantasy charms composed of elements of the Prada oeuvre” and known as Pradamalia.
“They are imaginary creatures not intended to have any reference to the real world and certainly not blackface. Prada Group never had the intention of offending anyone and we abhor all forms of racism and racist imagery. In this interest we will withdraw the characters in question from display and circulation,” it

THE DEVIL IN PARIS: Parisian auction house Cornette de Saint Cyr is holding an auction on Dec. 19 of 100 drawings by fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.
The pictures, drawn by Saint Laurent between 1961 and 1962, were destined to illustrate a children’s book commissioned by Parisian publisher Jacques Damase, but the project never came through. This is the first time the drawings are being unveiled to the public.
Named “Le Diable à Paris” (“The Devil in Paris”), the book, written by Damase, features a dapper-looking devil, drawn by Saint Laurent, wearing a red suit and little black horns on the cover illustration.
Other drawings see the devil dress up to visit a duchess, sport a leopard-printed suit and even a bull’s head in an illustration titled “Le Diable Espagnol” (“The Spanish Devil”), where he is pictured alongside a flamenco dancer.
Drawn in ink, pastel or graphite in mostly red and black hues, the title character is faced with an array of magical creatures, such as a giraffe in the shape of the Eiffel Tower or a human body with a dragon’s head.
A statement from the auction house explained Damase met Saint Laurent through accessories designer Roger Vivier. At the time of the project, the
Since launching her eponymous label, Chung has experimented with an array of characters and personalities: She took her woman from airport lounges to music gigs and channeled some of her literary heroines such as Virginia Wolf, but she now has a more focused idea of the direction she wants to take. Her latest muse is Joan, named after Joan of Arc.
“At the beginning of this journey, we were just making things for fun, and figuring it out as it went along. Now it seems to me that a woman is emerging, and Joan of Arc felt like a good symbolic person to start with, because it’s about reframing how we perceive feminine strength,” Chung mused during a preview. “We started with a call to arms, but ended with something very soft and pretty and the idea that there is as much power in leaning into your vulnerabilities. Her in the nightgown is better than her with the sword.”
Chung translated all of this into metallic suits, fishnet blouses, and snake-printed corseted tops — a modern take on armor. They were juxtaposed with more romantic ruffled skirts and charming high-necked floral blouses, broderie anglaise dresses and loose knits with heart intarsias on the sleeves.
Natalia Vodianova’s Naked Heart Foundation has teamed with online luxury fashion web site LuisaViaRoma for her latest installment of the annual Fund Fair.
Slated to take place in London at Roundhouse on Feb. 18, the event takes inspiration from filmmaker Federico Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita,” for its fifth year in the U.K. — and sixth overall.
The Fellini theme will be represented through an over-the-top set design at the English theater — complete with a Trevi Fountain. Guests, who in the past have included Hailey Baldwin and Taylor Swift, will try their hand at classic fair games like Hook-a-duck and bowling. Participating brands Louis Vuitton, Celine, Givenchy, Dior and more will have prizes on hand for the winners. There will additionally be live entertainment from Warner Music Group at the event.
Vodianova launched her foundation Naked Heart in 2004; since then, she has raised more than 40 million euros across the United States, U.K., Russia and France. The organization aims to support children with physical, mental and sensory disabilities through the initiation and support of various projects. Over the years, the Naked Heart Foundation has financed 18 projects across seven Russian cities, including a Family Support Centre in Nizhny Novgorod and summer and

Eric Wertz: The Ideal Watch for a Very Busy Man
Eric Wertz shoots his cuff and glances at the stark, black-and-gray G-STEEL on his wrist. “The watch has a tough, masculine vibe to it,” he says, “which I like.”
Eric is a man who knows style. His blog, Blue Collar Prep, garners thousands of visitors a month, and his Instagram feed has amassed 45,000 followers. “I can wear this watch with just about anything,” he adds, “but my first idea was to pair it with a black leather jacket. A simple fit, topped off with this G-STEEL—a clean, easy look for any guy to pull off.”
Eric loves the G-SHOCK because he can wear it during his day job as an electrician—the Bluetooth capability allows Eric to connect the watch to his smartphone, so he’s never late for his many appointments. Then, when his working day is done, he moves to a more polished look—and the G-STEEL makes the transition easily. In short, the watch fits Eric. “Fit is everything,” he says. “As soon as I put a piece on, I can tell if it’s going to be a wardrobe staple for me.”
Eric pauses, letting his innate assurance speak for itself. “Wear what makes you feel comfortable. Comfort evokes confidence.”
“You Can Be a Dad and Still Have Style”
On paper, Eric Wertz doesn’t fit the profile of a men’s style expert. He doesn’t reside in a loft in Tribeca, nor does he frequent trendy nightclubs. After long days of working full-time as a union electrician in the Hudson River Valley, he can be found at home with his wife Sarina (“an amazingly smart, beautiful and creative woman”) and his son Nate, “the coolest person” he knows.
Yet, despite his low-key existence, Eric has established himself as a prominent voice in the world of men’s fashion. And he couldn’t be happier. “I love that I can use these platforms to try and break stereotypes about dads. You can be a dad and still have style.” And the G-STEEL, he notes, is perfectly suited to his personal blend of reliability, confidence and style.
“Comfort and Durability, Above All”
Examining the G-STEEL’s durable carbon bezel, Eric notes, “Carbon fiber is a unique material to see in a watch.” And the G-STEEL is solar-powered and features superb 200m water resistance, meaning Eric won’t have to baby his timepiece during one of his frequent family excursions to the beach. But these aren’t the only G-STEEL capabilities that get Eric excited. “The phone finder function!” He chuckles. “I’m constantly putting my phone down and can never find it. Now I can.”
As a frequent traveler, Eric is also a fan of the G-SHOCK’s time-swapping capability, which allows him to keep track of local time while knowing the hour back home. Through the G-STEEL’s Bluetooth connectivity, Eric can manipulate the watch, changing it to show the time for any of approximately 300 cities worldwide—a must for a man who regularly communicates with designers in Europe and Asia.
Ultimately, Eric sees his style—and his G-STEEL—as part of a legacy. “Timepieces are an investment. I wanted a watch that’s going to last, one I don’t have to baby. I also look at watches as one of the rare accessories that you can have for a lifetime. It’s a piece you can hand down to your kids.”

FRENCH FLAG: Tommy Hilfiger is said to be eyeing Paris for his February “see-now-buy now” show. It is understood that the Chambre Syndicale, the organizer of the official fashion week, won’t make its decision until the end of this month if the designer can join its official calendar.
Hilfiger is reportedly looking to show his Tommy x Zendaya capsule collection in Paris as part of his see-now-buy-now extravaganzas. His globe-trotting shows, which have catapulted the brand’s social media engagement, have taken place in New York, Los Angeles, London and Milan.
Meanwhile, word has it that Hilfiger has already decided to return to his hometown in September and is considering the Apollo Theater in Harlem.
A spokeswoman for Hilfiger declined to comment on both the February and September events.
It was reported earlier this month that Ralph Lauren was entertaining the idea of showing in Paris in February, but a Ralph Lauren spokesman said Thursday the designer has decided against that idea. He plans to show in New York, although further details weren’t available.
Frida Kahlo served as inspiration for several designers over the decades. Agnona creative director Simon Holloway, though, focused on a more personal and private aspect of the Mexican artist, rather than on her colorful and exotic style.
Inspired by an exhibition of her personal belongings hosted at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum earlier this year, Holloway looked at Kahlo’s makeup and fragrances, which stimulated his sophisticated color sensibility. Delicate blush and pink tones were juxtaposed with purple, brown and gray shades in the elegant collection, which offered an upscale, covetable wardrobe for women looking for timeless, durable pieces with a modern spin.
Agnona’s outstanding textile quality stood out in the plush, cozy yet lightweight designs, including an effortless chic ribbed cardigan layered on a sable fur vest, felted cashmere narrow double-breasted coats and hyper feminine plissé knitted skirts and tops. The sense of relaxed refinement infused in the lineup was highlighted by the velour tracksuits worn with oversize camel coats, while trenchcoats crafted from luxurious performance materials revealed the collection’s practical attitude.
Continuing working with a coherent and cohesive approach, Holloway is actually shaping the new image of the Agnona brand, which is actually widening its offering to welcome onboard the younger generations
Ralph Lauren teamed up with a host of influencers for its latest holiday shopping campaign, tapping Emmy Rossum, Cameron Dallas, Iman, Taylor Hill, Olivia Palermo, Johannes Huebl the Shibutani siblings Alex and Maia to curated their own holiday shopping lists. The campaign then kicked off at the brand’s Beverly Hills flagship with a party Thursday night hosted by Rachel Zoe and Nate Berkus. Other guests included Kelly Sawyer, Elizabeth Chambers, Caroline Vreeland, Candice Nelson and David Lauren.
“They asked me to host along with Nate and to work on a gift guide for them, which of course was not hard at all since we are such a Ralph family and always have been,” said Zoe of the campaign, which she shot in Central Park. “It’s fun to help people navigate shopping. Men are the most challenging to buy for because they are so particular about what they want or don’t want but a guy is always happy to see a Ralph Lauren shopping bag. You can’t go wrong with a big Navajo cardigan or a shearling bomber. Or a holiday scented candle.”
Said Berkus, “I always appreciate giving and receiving things of quality that won’t go out of style,

Guys tends to run through our wardrobe essentials pretty quickly. T-shirts get dingy, socks get holes—it can be hard to keep up. This is where box set delivery service can come in handy; not only can you upgrade your style, follow the trends, and splurge on lust-worthy things to hang in your closet, box sets make it really easy to replenish the stuff you stuff into our drawers.
We’ve tried more than a few of these boxed services the last few years and one we really appreciate is the Style Plan from Frank And Oak. Instead of the hassle of waiting for the items to arrive, then repackaging and sending back the ones you choose not to keep, Frank and Oak gives you veto power up front. Before the box is ever sent, you get an email that tells you precisely what’s coming. You get up to three items per month, so you either accept the stylist’s selections or swap out those choices for something you really want or need. It’s really handy and super simple—especially when it comes to replacing t-shirts, socks, and such.
Here’s the best part: Right now Frank And Oak is offering Men’s Journal readers $ 30 off your first box and $ 0 Styling Fee. Just follow this exclusive link to the website, select your personal preferences, save thirty bucks, then wait for the goods to be delivered. If you like what’s chosen for you, great. If you don’t, either veto it via the email or send it back after it arrives, postage paid. And the zero Styling Fee means it’s basically a free trial; normally it’s $ 25 if you decide to veto/return an entire month’s box—but not for you.
Try it, and if you like it you save $ 30. If you don’t like it? Hey, you’re the one with the coffee stain on your shirt.

GIGLI’S TRIBUTE: Romeo Gigli was recognized on Wednesday in Milan by Brera’s prestigious Art Academy, which bestowed the Honoris Causa Diploma in communication and art teaching to the designer. Gigli also received the title of honorary member of the institution.
“Romeo Gigli, who made culture, books, traveling and kindness his own style, understands that many secrets challenge us and are hidden in mythical stories.…Gigli’s language morphed into clothes that wanted to reveal the most hidden secret: that of poetry,” stated the academy, which emphasized not only Gigli’s contribution as a designer of high fashion, but also his “ability to use the spiritual activity that created myths,” creating a “mythological vision of reality.” The academy also underscored the designer’s “tireless research [and] his ability to transform the light and history in fabrics, clothes and accessories,” his “great contribution to the enhancement of the Italian culture,” and how the designer “infused his passion for beauty, history and the journey in his work.”
The designer was born in 1949 in Castel Bolognese, near Ravenna, to a family of antique book sellers and studied architecture at university. Gigli launched his own brand in 1983 and conceived looks with architectural shapes combined with romantic, Renaissance touches, dashes of
Oh, how times have changed. Back in 1968, a pop music show on French TV might feature Françoise Hardy performing in a dress custom-made by Christian Dior from an original sketch by Sonia Delaunay. As a bonus, the segment in question began with Delaunay and Dior couturier Marc Bohan discussing the collaboration.
Cut to 2018, when a designer outfit might merit at best a cursory glance and “like” on Instagram, before the eye skips to the next quick-fix gratification. Maria Grazia Chiuri knows today’s audience has little patience for the complexities of technique and design, yet she’s also convinced they are the essence of luxury.
Her pre-fall collection reveled in the kind of intricate detail that gets lost in pictures, but forges a powerful emotional connection in real life. That gripping archival footage of an 83-year-old Delaunay got her thinking about how the artist used embroidery and color in her work in the early 20th century.
“I think it was really something revolutionary for the time,” Chiuri mused.
In intellectual terms, the collection was all about craft as a vehicle for women’s artistic expression — as explored in feminist art historian Rozsika Parker’s seminal book “The Subversive Stitch.” On an emotional level, it connected with
STAR SEARCH: Diane von Furstenberg arrived at her holiday party in New York on Tuesday night hoisting a burning object — apropos given her fund-raising role for the new Statue of Liberty Museum, and the liberty theme of her summer collection.
The object was, in fact, a roll of smudging sage that she used to perfume her flagship Meatpacking boutique, and a new, adjacent 600-square-foot room she christened as an “interactive, experiential” gallery celebrating zodiac signs. Visitors can take in — i.e. take selfies for Instagram — Konstantin Kakanias artworks on the walls and thousands of Swarovski crystals dangling from the ceiling. They can also park themselves on a sparkling crescent moon propped in one corner, as Glamour’s Samantha Barry did upon arrival. The “celestial” experience is to run through February, with a new decor and activations unveiled every two months.
There’s an exit into the retail store, which stocks zodiac gifts, stickers and postcards as mementos. Setting the sage aside, von Furstenberg toted a camera through the crowd and snapped photos of guests next to their birth signs. Revelers include Fran Lebowitz, Andy Cohen, Sofia Sanchez de Betak and magician David Blaine.

FLYING PROBE: Italy’s antitrust watchdog has begun a probe to determine whether Alitalia and luxury goods group Aeffe have possibly engaged in surreptitious advertising through social media.
The antitrust authority has launched a preliminary investigation of Italy’s largest airline company and of Aeffe, in a link to its co-owner Alberta Ferretti. It is also investigating a number of influencers, including Chiara Ferragni, who posted on Instagram images of themselves wearing Alberta Ferretti designs embellished with the Alitalia logo.
On Tuesday, Aeffe executive chairman Massimo Ferretti, brother of the designer, had no comment on the issue.
In June, Ferretti unveiled the new uniforms she designed for employees of Alitalia, as well as a see-now-buy-now capsule collection. The latter was presented at the brand’s resort 2019 and “Limited Edition” midi couture fall collection runway show that month.
The new uniforms replaced this summer those designed by Italian haute couturier Ettore Bilotta, which Alitalia introduced in 2016.
The capsule was immediately available at the brand’s stores and e-commerce, as well as at selected retailers including LuisaViaRoma, Rinascente, Farfetch, Barneys and Forward by Elyse Walker, and consisted of a sweatshirt, a T-shirt and a sweater embellished with the Alitalia logo.
Natacha Ramsay-Levi built on the key elements that have become associated with the Chloé look since taking over the creative helm three seasons ago, moving between the clashing colors and prints of the line’s Seventies mix and a more proper bourgeois vibe à la Eighties — with a dash of Victoriana in the tie-neck blouses.
“The way we do fashion now is a lot about remixes and transformation, doing something new with something old,” she said.
The collection’s boho vibe was on fine form, as always without too much of a romantic tilt, with the designer folding feminine soft elements like printed silk blouses and scarves into hard-edged looks. Key ingredients included Carnaby Street-inspired velvet; trompe l’oeil-printed houndstooth fabrics that gave a horsey, “Wuthering Heights” flavor, and utilitarian wear.
Standout silhouettes included a flower-print, high-neck sweater with billowing sleeves and long, ribbed cuffs worn under a silk dress in a patchwork of flower prints with asymmetric flounces; a black silk, Victoriana-style, tie-neck blouse with a big, white, lace collar worn with high-waisted flared shorts in a cool, wool, check fabric; and a high-neck blouse in a bourgeois, chain-link print with a signature horse logo, jacquard, knitted vest, worn with ultra-long, flared purple pants.

SWEDE TEAM: Hennes & Mauritz has teamed with Eytys for a gender neutral collection due early next year, targeting younger consumers with a fashion-forward offer.
The fast-fashion retailer will sell the Swedish label’s chunky-soled shoes and clothing for adults as well as items for children, starting Jan. 24 in some stores around the world and online.
The collaboration comes as the Swedish retailer undergoes a vast restructuring in a bid to beef up online services and speed up supply chains to catch up with rivals. The group last month said it would close Cheap Monday, a label geared to younger clients.
“The collection is all about proportions — creating a distinct unisex silhouette by playing around with loose silhouettes and chunky architectural footwear,” said Max Schiller, Eytys creative director.
Colors will include dark green, bright yellow, khaki, dark blue, black and white, while materials will include snakeskin prints, fake patent leather and stiff cotton. Shoes will be offered in boxes decorated with artwork by painter Zoe Barcza.
According to H&M’s statement, the retailer initially approached the label for a shoe collection but then decided on a full range of clothing and accessories, too, in order to show the “whole brand aesthetic and ethos,” according to Ross Lydon,

LONDON — Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex took Fashion Award-goers in London by surprise when she took to the Royal Albert Hall stage on Monday evening to present Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller, the designer behind her wedding dress, with the British women’s wear designer of the year award.
“It’s such a pleasure to be here, celebrating British fashion and British designers in my new home of the U.K. I’m seeing many familiar faces, many of you I’ve known for quite a while,” said Markle, who wore an elegant one-shoulder Givenchy gown and clutched onto her baby bump throughout her speech.
She spoke about women empowering each other through the clothes they wear and fashion’s shifting culture: “It was cool to be cruel, now it’s cool to be kind,” she said.
“When you choose to wear a certain designer, we’re not just a reflection of their creativity and their vision but we’re also an extension of their values,” added the new royal, lauding Keller’s “creativity and incredible kindness.”
In turn, a very shocked Keller thanked Markle for trusting her in such an important moment in her life.
This is the second time a member of the Royal Family has attended an event organized by the British Fashion
“Sand, summer, sea,” Sarah Staudinger described of the beginnings of her latest collection for Staud. From the sand, terry cloth was introduced à la striped three-piece sets — cropped top, skirt, duster — with matching bucket hat and Bisset bag, as well as beach ready cover-ups — raw-edge seashell-colored linen sarongs with raw edges, jumpsuits and tunics and men’s wear-inspired button-ups. Summer was encapsulated through an array of adorable picnic inspired garb in poppy hues like tablecloth gingham compact knit playsuits and matching sets and plenty of crudite emblazoned offerings. The best foodie-looks included a salad printed waffle minidress with matching cardigan or a matching neon green knit set with fringe made of mini glass lemons (and matching croakies). To round out the collection, vibrant technical tube tops, skirts, shorts and dresses of varying lengths referenced the sea with pull-ties to create volume and billowing sleeves.
Accessories were a hit as well — old bags had new prints (gingham) or fabrics (linen and lizard) while new bags came triangular (big and small) and cylindrical; there were even leather sunglass-case attachments and matching sandals to complete the looks. The lineup was playful and encapsulated the fresh summer feeling through the more
LOS ANGELES — We’re sitting in plastic chairs around a podium that reads Malibu Rehab Center, surrounded by beautiful clothes, skateboards, surfboards and oh, yes, a $ 2 million Ferrari F40.
It’s a group session led by Alan Sutcliffe and Jeff Skene, founders and owners of Local Authority. The Malibu brand, founded in 2014, has built a following among celebrities and those with impeccable taste for a little bit of attitude served with a focus on details and craftsmanship. The brand grew up at Maxfield, but counts 80 accounts of tastemaker retailers. In October, it soft-launched the Local Authority footwear, spearheaded by footwear design director Mike McGlaflin, who was most recently working with Zegna, and before that, Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent. Footwear’s global launch is slated for Dec. 13.
The soft launch that exclusively brought the shoes to Maxfield, the brand’s first account, came with a now-concluded pop-up in the gallery space across from Maxfield’s main store on Melrose. The space, designed to serve as a reflection of the brand’s various facets, featured vignettes such as a nod to rock concerts with a section of a wall covered in show fliers, an homage to Rodeo Drive, skateboarding and then the reference to

MOVING ON: Rod Manley, executive vice president of global communications at Calvin Klein Inc., is leaving the New York-based fashion house.
It is understood Manley resigned for personal reasons, and to pursue another professional opportunity. His next move could not immediately be learned.
The executive could not be reached for comment over the weekend. A Calvin Klein spokeswoman said Sunday Manley is still with the company, but confirmed he has tendered his resignation. “Rod has been an incredible asset to Calvin Klein during his time with the organization. We wish him the absolute best in his future endeavors,” she said.
A seasoned communications figure, Manley joined Klein in 2015. Before that, he was senior vice president, communications at Giorgio Armani, where he has worked for nine years, both in New York and previously in the company’s Milan headquarters.
Manley oversaw the public relations, celebrity services, special events and corporate communications teams. His successor has yet to be named.
Giorgio Armani injected a young and fun vibe into his Emporio Armani collection.
The lineup’s eye-catching look was conveyed through the flamboyant patchwork of jacquard motifs peppering coats, the graphic wild animal motifs printed on suits — their mannish silhouettes softened by the plush velvet fabric — as well as by slightly exaggerated shapes. For example, a blue Neoprene blazer and deep green trenchcoat, which was layered over a feminine, ruffled silk dress, showed bold, oversize cuts.
Denim enhanced the urban vibe of the collection with bleached jeans matched with a two-tone faux fur coat and loafers for an updated, cool tomboy look. Slim jeans were also matched with sartorial jackets, enriched by maxi buttons adding an eccentric touch.
LONDON – Kim Jones, artistic director of Dior men’s wear, will be among the British and international names to step onto the stage at Royal Albert Hall Monday night as the winner of the inaugural Trailblazer award.
The award marks Jones’ “always-on cultural zeitgeist and his reputation for challenging the norms while respecting heritage, history, creativity and innovation,” the British Fashion Council said, adding the award recognizes “the very best innovators and creatives in fashion” who are significantly shaping the industry.
The BFC pointed to Jones’ collaboration with KAWS to reinterpret the Dior bee emblem and the designer’s appeal to a growing female audience, “reflecting the trend for men and women forgetting the gender focus of a collection and buying pieces they simply want to own and wear.”
“His love for travel, international cultures and understanding of consumers further enhance his creative and commercial standing,” said Caroline Rush, chief executive officer of the BFC, adding the organization is “very proud he is British born, educated and a great global ambassador for our industry.”
Jones, a Central Saint Martins graduate, said: “This recognition for my work means a lot to me.”

Ermenegildo Zegna is expanding its reach in China.
The luxury Italian men’s wear brand has opened a digital “flagship” on Tmall Luxury Pavilion in a move that marks Zegna’s first online offering in the market outside of its own e-commerce site.
Zegna was one of the first luxury-goods brands to enter China with the opening of its first store in Beijing in 1991. The country now represents about half of its overall business. At the WWD CEO Summit in October, chief executive officer Ermenegildo Zegna, said: “We used to test new things in this market [the U.S.], but now we test them in China, and if it works, then we bring them around the world. [The Chinese customer] is so alive and he wants continuous innovation — probably because he’s younger and he has more time to shop.”
As part of its launch on Tmall, Zegna has created an exclusive collection with the Chinese Football Association. The limited-edition CFA Capsule Collection, which was developed for the China market, offers navy and white activewear, polo shirts, jackets, trainers and leather accessories inspired by the national soccer team’s off-field formal and casual attire, which Zegna has designed since 2016. A fuller assortment will be available by
Nicole Miller featured her pre-fall collection on a character who embodied its mix of tough and tender — model and professional skydiver Alyona Subbotina.
“I had such a strong personality wear them. She worked into the story because I felt I always design for that strong girl who has the feminine soft side and the edge together,” Miller mused. Camouflage prints with tiny flowers were mixed with dark floral prints on multiple easy dresses, and most memorably on an oversize utility coat. One little black dress had bows sewn all over it. “If you’re a goody-two-shoe, you make it all bows, and if you’re a badass, you make it all knots or let it hang, but I showed it half and half for duality,” the designer explained.
Miller referred to her light-colored floral frocks as “the sweeter things in life,” and mixed in bomber jackets and half-leather, half-cotton denim pants to toughen them up.
Three students from the Pratt Institute of Design are under the spotlight. Their senior thesis projects are being showcased at the Ralph Pucci International showroom, 44 West 18th Street, through Dec. 14.
“We are always looking for what’s new, what’s next,” said Ralph Pucci. “The kids are not afraid to take creative chances. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. But the result is always fresh and original.”
Pucci, a member of the board of directors at Pratt, picked three of his favorite collections from last spring’s senior student show, to showcase on his new mannequins, for visual market week and for several days after.
“Ralph recognizes superior talent at Pratt,” said Jennifer Minniti, chairwoman of Pratt Institute School of Design. “These student designs are really showroom ready. We prefer to challenge the norms and provide new cultural messaging through fashion.”
Rachel Lee, 22, who lives in Brooklyn and now works at Gap Inc. in design, has eight mannequins at the Pucci showroom. “The concept for my thesis is based on my family,” Lee said. “They’re from New Orleans and I wanted to connect with the city. It’s all about color, humor and fun. My mom’s side of the family is from there. Last June,

Theatergoers, who haven’t lined up tickets for “The Cher Show,” can catch her famed fashion designer Bob Mackie at a Jan. 29 Q&A at 92Y.
Looking to give the glitzy bedazzler his due after more than 50 years in the fashion industry, Fern Mallis said she has been trying to get him to commit to the stage for a year. About a year ago, the Fashion Icons interviewer started the process. “Booking people for this is not exactly easy,” she said, adding that news reports of the Cher-inspired Broadway show only made her more impassioned to seek him out.
Mallis said she first met Mackie more than 30 years ago through the Council of Fashion Designers of America. “I remember going to one of his shows in the tents at Bryant Park that was just mind-boggling. It was so theatrical that it was like watching a Broadway show. The crowd was just on their feet. It wasn’t about the latest trends or fads. It was spectacle.”
While Cher remains perennially linked to Mackie’s career, he worked with Carol Burnett for 11 years, and dressed standouts like Judy Garland and Diana Ross, too. Mackie also sketched the nude-colored rhinestone-encrusted gown that Marilyn Monroe wore
R13’s Chris Leba is in the throes of consolidating his offices into a new downtown space — and gearing up to open his first brick-and-mortar store on the ground level sometime next year. Women’s market is in full swing, then men’s, then women’s again.
He drew light inspiration for his pre-fall from Sofia Coppola’s film “Marie Antoinette,” enticed by its frivolity and baroque elements. Subtle winks to the film were seen in the ruffles on billowing button-down shirts, and sand-washed floral-printed silks rendered into easy and sexy tops with animal print accents. Otherwise, the collection featured Leba’s usual balance of eccentric punk, tailoring and inventive denim.
At the core of the collection were young, exciting, wearable clothes with gender-ambiguous undertones. A bleached group of suiting and sweatshirts with safety-pin embellishments provided edge to more formal men’s-inspired attire, and upcycled vintage motorcycle jackets which are specially studded in Los Angeles and can’t easily be replicated. One effortlessly cool pinstriped blazer was cut generously and studded along the lapels. Leba noted many of the tailored items could end up in the men’s line, following a recent trend of gender-fluid design.
He thrived when using denim to experiment with new, inventive shapes, such as jackets with
Faherty is in the giving spirit this holiday season.
The New York-based casualwear brand has created a new women’s collection, the Rainbow capsule, and will donate 10 percent of sales to The Trevor Project, a suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ youth.
The collection, which will be available starting Monday, consists of a sweater poncho for $ 269, a pom beanie for $ 78 and a cotton-acrylic scarf for $ 118.
To promote the initiative, Faherty will team with Brooklyn-based fashion blogger Allison Graham of “She Does Him,” who will produce and share a campaign featuring the Rainbow capsule with more than 27,000 of her followers.
“When we designed the Rainbow Sweater Poncho and matching beanie and scarf for our holiday collection, its bright colors and cozy softness evoked in us the warm and fuzzy feeling of the holidays,” said Faherty president Kerry Faherty. “But we also know the holidays can bring up feelings of sadness and loneliness for many. We reached out to The Trevor Project to set up a partnership and donate a portion of our Rainbow Collection sales to the organization. We’re deeply inspired by and grateful for the organization’s incredible efforts in the LGBTQ community and we’re honored to support them during

PARIS — Virgil Abloh has added a new role to his CV: creative adviser for sustainable innovation design at Evian.
The founder of Off-White and creative director of Louis Vuitton’s men’s line is to help the mineral water company, owned by Danone, make its design process more sustainable.
“Evian is an iconic brand with a strong heritage in fashion and creativity,” the designer said in a statement. “Its sustainability ambitions align with my own. Together we can push boundaries and explore new areas of revolution, paving a better future for generations globally.”
The announcement comes as Evian steps toward its goal of becoming a 100 percent circular brand by 2025: By this date, the company aims for all its water bottles to be made out of recycled plastic.
According to the statement, Abloh will both help design Evian future products and “use his wide-scale platform to engage his audience and raise awareness around the importance of innovation in design and sustainability.”
Announcing the collaboration via its Instagram account, Evian playfully riffed on Abloh’s signature quotation marks: on a makeshift Evian business card, the designer’s name is followed by his new title, “Creative Adviser.”
“Virgil is a creative innovator who has a degree in civil engineering and a
Creative director Emily Smith’s formula for pre-fall was a little bit American southwest mixed with the work of light and space artist James Turrell, who is best known for the Roden Crater, a large-scale installation set inside a volcanic cinder cone in the Painted Desert region of Arizona. The result was a wide range of breezy silhouettes balancing a sense of ease with cool. Smith has been steering the brand in a younger direction the past few seasons, and this collection seemed to mark the full realization of those efforts.
References to the inspirations were light, and seen only through ombré, tie-dye and landscape prints in rich, earthy tones. A buttery camel leather coat with ombré effect displayed the collection’s sleek sensibility, while a gray leather jacket and skirt with the same dip-dye effect leaned more edgy and fun. Dresses were used as a canvas and featured abstract sand dunes and cloud prints — none of which read literal. An elegant chambray dress with obilike belt was the closest thing to Wild West fashion. She focused on silhouettes that lend themselves to easy summer dressing, including lounge-y and chic pajama sets, cotton wrap-front blouses and a great oversized travel scarf created by
PARIS — Kering and the Savory Institute have joined forces to apply the nonprofit’s “Land to Market” system for sourcing to the fashion industry.
Noting the industry’s part in damaging ecosystems, the luxury giant said the idea is to promote agriculture practices meant to reverse environmental damage. So-called regenerative raw materials are key to building a circular economy for the industry, and their use could be a potential game changer, the company said in a joint statement with the organization.
“Regenerative agriculture is a multibenefit solution which supports Kering’s sustainability ambitions to mitigate our environmental impacts and deliver positive outcomes along our supply chain,” said the group’s chief sustainability officer, Marie-Claire Daveu, who also heads the group’s international institutional affairs.
The company will become a “frontier founder” or partner to the Boulder-based group, and the two will work together to draw up a network of farms to supply raw materials to Kering.
Fashion companies are under increasing pressure to improve their records amidst growing consumer concern about environmental issues. Kering has positioned itself as a trailblazer on such matters in the corporate world, publishing an environmental profit and loss account for the sneaker business Puma as early as 2011, for example.

Amazon has already changed the way humans shop for pretty much everything. Now the company has its sights set on the fastest growing segment of e-commerce on the planet: apparel.
Of course, there are plenty of hurdles. People have always been leery of buying clothes they can’t first see, feel, and/or try on. And guys notoriously hate shopping for clothes. Most importantly, until recently absolutely nothing about Amazon was considered “cool.” Rather, Amazon earned its renown as the source for the life’s necessary staples: trash bags, light bulbs, and batteries.
Alexa changed all that.
The groundbreaking smart home accessory beat established tech companies to market with a fun, intuitive, and—so far—reliable product with the Echo. Thanks to its success, Amazon has been emboldened in recent years, branching into segments (like groceries) that had traditionally been off-limits to the company. It still might not be “cool,” but it’s definitely on the cutting edge.
Fashion, though, is purely subjective. Thanks to the commerce models put in place by apparel companies like Bonobos and Warby Parker, the online fashion commerce business plan has been firmly established. Now it’s up to Amazon to convince us that it’s developed a tasteful sense of style.
Enter Amazon Fashion.
It follows Amazon’s traditional presentation to a T, sorting its offerings into categories by price, size, Big & Tall, brand, and more. But Amazon Fashion breaks it down even further into curated sections such as Night Out (stylish streetwear), Workout, and In for the Night (loungewear, pajamas). Better, it curates pages to offer recommendations on various styles of dress. The Cool section features plenty of black garb, skinny jeans, leather jackets, and boots; Minimal offers staples in warm tones, like coats, sweaters, and sneakers; Casual goes for the comfortable, laid-back look with chinos, chukkas, and natural fabrics; and Classic offers traditional everyday fare like jeans, t-shirts, work boots, and pea coats.
Recently, Amazon also unveiled a number of technical innovations designed to drive its apparel business. The Echo Look is an Alexa-powered “hands-free camera and style assistant” that records and comments on your clothing choices—and offers recommendations for improvement, based on a variety of AI factors. (If that seems kinda creepy, we don’t blame you—but so did horseless carriages way back when.) The Look hasn’t yet exploded like the Alexa has, perhaps because it doesn’t allow calling and messaging the way a traditional Echo does. But with a holiday sale price of $ 50 (it’s regularly $ 200), the Echo Look is priced to move. We’ll see.
Another new fashion feature, Prime Wardrobe, lets you to try up to eight items for seven days (no dressing rooms!) and return what you don’t want, free, in a resealable box with a preprinted label. It’s another modern approach that Amazon learned from the real innovators in the e-commerce apparel space, like StitchFix.
So take a spin around Amazon Fashion. If you’re already a Prime member, you’ve got nothing to lose; just return the stuff you won’t wear. It might not totally revolutionize your closet, but it’s way easier than a dozen laps around the mall. And hey, no dressing rooms.
We caught up with surfing icon Kelly Slater in New York during the launch of the Superocean Heritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown watch, the result of a year-long collaboration between his clothing brand Outerknown and Breitling. Read our full interview below.
Men’s Journal: How did you team up to make this watch happen?
Kelly Slater: Breitling contacted us [Outerknown, the clothing brand Slater co-founded in 2015] about a year ago to talk about this idea and putting together a group of a squad with [pro surfers] Stephanie Gilmore and Sally Fitzgibbons, who are both long-time friends of mine. Breitling really wanted to represent what we mean to our sport, and give us the opportunity to include Outerknown by letting us design the watch bands.
So what’s unique about the band?
It’s made with Econyl, a yarn made with recycling fishing nets pulled from the ocean and then re-spinning back into a threading. We’ve created jackets that use it so the whole thing can be recycled. That was part of our beginning and why we launched the brand.
You’ve made your own surfboards and wave machines, so what made you get into clothing?
I just knew that something smelled a little fishy in the way clothing was made, so to speak. There was an epiphany moment. I was doing a fast for six days, I was just drinking water and about four or five days into that, I had just the clearest thoughts ever. I thought I’ve got to find out where our clothes are made when I was with another clothing company. I’ve got to find out who makes the clothes and where they’re made and what goes into it, and I need to know that whole thing because it’s provided me with so much in my life and I don’t know really anything about it. So, I started asking questions and I started getting roadblocks.
This sounds like a conspiracy theory.
I would say that it actually is. I went to a guy who worked for that company who was an artist—I’d known the guy for 20 or 30 years and figured he’d tell me. I went to his office, and I said, “Hey, I want to talk to you about something. I feel like I can get the answer from you before anyone else.” And he goes, “I don’t think you’re going to like the answers.” And he literally stood up and went and shut his door to his office and he said, “Alright, you want to talk about this? You’re just not going to like what you hear, because they’re going to buy everything as cheaply as they possibly can and make it for as little as possible, with people who don’t get paid very well, and don’t have a living wage and all that.”
You’d think for a clothing brand co-owned by a world-famous athlete, your photo would be plastered all over the website. But it’s not.
There were thoughts of calling it Slater, but I just want it to be about the clothing and more about the ideas than it was about me. My goal was to make good clothes the right way and let that stand the test of time. To me, it was more about creating this brand than it was trying to promote myself. Look, I’m proud of what I’ve done. It’s allowed me to have the access to create this company and get people that believe in the things I believe in and see what this could do in an industry that’s allowed that to happen because of what I’ve done. So, of course, I’m very proud of my accomplishments. I didn’t necessarily want to go and run the risk of being cheesy and “go buy Slater stuff.”
So are you adding clothing designer to your resume?
Well, the Apex Trunk is probably my signature piece because that’s what I live in. I worked on all aspects of the design on that trunk, but I don’t have the time to go in there and work on everything. I’m happy with it being tied to me saying the Apex predator. To me, I want to be a great white shark. When I compete, I want to be that top guy. It’s surprising that it’s not all neon though—when I was a kid everything on my surfboards was all orange and green.
I read that if you compete in the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics, it might be your last competition?
Yes, I wouldn’t say it would be my last event. I’ll probably still surf events for five years after I compete here and there. But I’m looking at potentially next year being my last full-time competitive year. And if I made the Olympics, then I would probably still compete somewhat consistently in the beginning of that year 2020, just to keep myself fresh and alert on how I need to compete, so I won’t be nervous at that time.
What does it mean for surfing to make it into the Olympics?
I can clearly see either side of it. I could be totally fine without surfing in the Olympics and I can be totally behind it as well. I see the benefit of it, and I also see that we do have a world tour that determines the best surfer in the world each year over the course of a whole year and all different kinds of conditions and I think the best surfer of the year ends up being a world champion. The pressure that’s put on the Olympics, I think, is really going to make the cream rise to the top, because you’re going to have to be just so confident in your game and what you’re doing, and decisive about that on that day, that somebody who is just a natural is going to win that thing.
You’ve been known to chase waves around the world. How do you pinpoint where the surf’s going to be?
When I first started, I had no idea. I would wake up in the morning when I was a little kid I’d take the wax off my board and my friends and I would ride our bike as fast as you can down to the beach. And most days in Florida it was nothing. As a kid, I didn’t know what made waves, I just knew that sometimes I’d wake up and the waves are big, and the wind is good. Then as a teenager, I meet a guy named Sean Collins who had a thing called Wave Track, which turned into what is now probably the biggest surf forecasting site in the world called Surfline. I was good friends with him from the time I was about 13 or 14, and he used to show me swell maps and how he would get weather maps from, say, Australia in June and July. He would be able to read what the storms are doing near New Zealand and he would know 10 days later those were going to hit the California coast. So he would have a good idea of size and interval. And then you look at local wind charts to see how it’s going to be affecting the local conditions.
I started to learn this stuff as a kid and then, through the websites and the apps that those guys have created over the years, it’s basically almost like you can self-teach any of this stuff. You go look at it and you get a good idea about how it works. But luckily there are still a few secrets about how to read them, because I love to go to Fiji and some of the websites will give an incorrect forecast and people don’t understand how to read it. If you know how to read it, it’s really obvious.
Once you hang up surfing competitively, what will you be doing?
I would say for probably a year or two I’ll travel more than I do right now. More short [surf] trips, just strike missions, like chase a swell. Right now I’ve been injured for the last year and a bit so I haven’t traveled, I haven’t chased a lot of swells down. But when I’m done competing full-time I’ll just have my eye constantly on what the ocean is doing around the world, and if I see a good swell in Namibia in July, I might go for two days. Last week, I was going to go to the Northwest coast of Africa and surf but I just kind of didn’t have the time.
Who is the next Kelly Slater?
The next guy is a kid name Eli Hanneman from Maui, he’s 15 and he’s unbelievable.

Payless on Wednesday began offering a limited-edition holiday collection of footwear, inspired by Martha Stewart’s everyday life and style.
The new line, available at payless.com, is — for now — just a capsule collection for holiday. The line was in collaboration with Sequential Brands Group Inc., the brand management firm that owns the Martha Stewart brand.
Sequential’s chief executive officer Karen Murray said the new partnership “complements our strategy for the Martha Stewart brand, which is to create beautiful, high-quality products and make them available at an affordable price where consumers shop.”
Stewart last month partnered with Aerosoles for a separate footwear line called Martha Stewart for Aerosoles. She is also Aerosole’s brand ambassador. The line at Payless is part of the core Martha Everyday brand. The limited-edition capsule at Payless for includes a strappy, stiletto sandal; a flat, kitten-heel mule and two variations of sling-backs. Price points range from $ 29.99 to $ 34.99. Additional styles — casual sandals, sneakers and slip-ons — are on the agenda for spring 2019.
The lifestyle maven said, “Whenever I am designing items for my customers, I always want to give them the best possible product at the most affordable price. When I started designing this line for Payless,
A Cartier ad, an Eddie Murphy movie and Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang. It sounds like a mixed bag of references, yet Carly Cushnie managed to extract a common thread of opulence to inform her lovely pre-fall collection, brimming with sensual dresses for which the brand is known and a key expansion of daywear.
The Cartier ad was by Jean Larivière in the Fifties, where a leopard slinks its way inside a store, representing a type of otherworldly glamour you can only dream of. It led the designer to think about the late Eighties comedy “Coming to America,” where Murphy plays a prince coming to New York from a made-up African country. Mixed together, they provided Cushnie with a recipe for light Eighties silhouettes and overall posh gloss, seen in exaggerated shoulders throughout and the draped tulle sleeves of a fabulous little black dress.
Cai Guo-Qiang’s “Heritage” piece of 99 animals sharing a watering hole informed the color palette and use of mixed prints. The mixed print dresses and skirts were the most captivating upon first glance, featuring asymmetric construction offsetting animal prints, colorblocking and pleats. But monotone dresses with sculptural lines and fluid construction proved to be more seductive, like a red

See lots more of Carole at Only Tease. This sexy model has does an impressive sixty sets for Only Tease, including four very hot videos. After you browse through her photos and videos, I’m sure you’ll understand why she’s been voted Newcomer Of The Years and later the Model Of The Year.
Something for the holiday wish list: Dior will release its latest photo book, “Dior by Gianfranco Ferré,” on Dec. 15 throughout Europe, with worldwide distribution set for Jan. 15. The book, published by Assouline, will be released in two separate editions, one in English and one in French, showcasing the Italian designer’s work for the house between 1989 and 1996.
“Dior by Gianfranco Ferré” is the fourth volume in the series the Dior house is releasing chronicling each creative director of the brand. Noted moments throughout the 320 pages include the fall 1989 Ascot-Cecil Beaton collection and the fall 1996 Indian Passion collection.
The book’s copy was written by Alexander Fury with photos by Laziz Hamani. It will retail for 70 euros.
In the late Eighties and early Nineties, Amy Arbus took her first street-style photographs in New York. For pre-fall, the Parisian See by Chloé girl channels those streets — “a time when youth culture thrived amidst the city’s diverse social scenes” — clad in a juxtaposition of boyish-prep-meets-fresh-femininity. Cue Prince of Wales carrot pants paired with a lilac, Victorian-inspired ruffled shirt and chunky clogs, or a varsity poncho over a drop-hem day dress and paisley pussy-bow blouse.
Paisley prints and embroidered trims ran their course throughout in faded and dusty blues on flirty matching sets and breezy dresses, while sweaters — from chunky ribbed or slightly distressed dresses to sweater vests and cardigans — kept looks cool. A particularly great paisley sweater, paired with oversized denim shorts, made for a great mash-up, as did the strongest look: a gold brocade button-up shirt, cinched under a wide belt and paired with a paneled gray denim and beige cotton carrot pant. The lineup gave modern interpretation to Arbus characters of yore.
LONDON — British retailer Browns is amping up its efforts to support emerging talent by becoming the latest partner of the British Fashion Council’s NewGen scheme.
NewGen promotes London’s most promising up-and-comers by providing mentoring, financial support and showcasing opportunities during London Fashion Week.
As a partner, Browns said it will work toward strengthening the designers’ support network by further funding the scheme and providing mentorship programs that will focus on passing on the Browns team’s business and retail expertise.
Members of the Browns team will also sit on the NewGen judging panel to determine which designers will receive sponsorship in the coming seasons.
Current recipients include Halpern, Richard Quinn, Phoebe English, Matty Bovan, Liam Hodges, Kiko Kostadinov and Alighieri.
“Through partnerships like this, we will continue to demonstrate the Browns ethos, and we look forward to working closely with the BFC and the designers to build out meaningful initiatives with support and mentorship at the heart,” said Holli Rogers, the retailer’s chief executive officer.
Earlier this year, Browns also set up a new department dedicated to scouting and supporting young talent and is now looking to expand it into different segments, to reflect the huge variety of categories emerging talent can belong to.

What makes you feel more confident is a matter of personal preference. For some that means honing in on physical fitness or leveling up in their career. For others it’s investing in a better grooming regimen. If that’s the case, you might want to start with your smile.
Most Americans fall in one of two categories: You either had braces as a kid, but neglected to wear your retainer after (guilty), so your teeth have inevitably and tragically shifted; or you never had ’em growing up, and now you’re able and willing to do something about it.
As an adult, you’d be hard pressed to commit to braces. But Invisalign treatment is a much more appealing option. Thinking about taking the plunge? Here are some of the most common questions you can expect to have, answered by Ken Cooperman, D.M.D., of Chambers Street Orthodontics.
How Much Does Invisalign Treatment Actually Cost?
It differs case by case. A lot of it depends on who’s providing your care. The cost tends to be a bit higher in New York City and major metropolitan areas, but I would say between $ 3,500-$ 8,000, comparable to the cost of braces, depending on the severity of the case. It doesn’t have anything to do with the number of aligners themselves either. Some more intricate cases might involve removing certain teeth or pairing several rounds of Invisalign treatment with jaw surgery, because we’d be interacting with an outside surgeon.
What Are the Attachments and Accessories?
We try to show people what these are going to look like so nobody gets a surprise when they’re just expecting aligners, and suddenly we’re talking about attachments or filing in between the teeth to create additional space. The attachments are tooth-colored ridges that are adhered to your teeth like braces brackets; they snap into the aligners for a tighter fit to make sure the teeth are continuing to move the way we predict they will. Invisalign treatment is primarily based on a computer predictor.
Do You Need the Attachments?
There are some movements that are never going to occur without those attachments. If we need to rotate a tooth, attachments increase the efficiency and to try to minimize the lack of movement so the prediction stays as close as possible to reality. Attachments make a very significant difference on the quality of your treatment result.
What’s the Average Patient Like?
It’s a mix. When I was a kid, I had braces, and wore my retainer for a year, then thought I was done, per my orthodontist’s instructions. Everything was fine until I was in my late 20s and suddenly my bottom teeth started moving again so I needed round two. So we get many, many people who approach us about Invisalign treatment who once had braces and need to correct some changes. But there are a very large subset of patients who just didn’t have the opportunity, or the wherewithal, or the interest to have orthodontic treatment when they were younger, and now they want to look their best. The one thing that’s very consistent, at least in our practice, is the concept of long-term retention in that once you achieve your treatment results, you want to maintain it for the long-term. You can’t just use a retainer for a year because nobody wants to come back for round three.
Say Someone Is Going to a Cocktail or Holiday Party. What’s the Lesser of Two Evils: Leaving the Retainer Out or Keeping it in and Drinking Clear Alcohol?
I would say that it’s 100 percent better to take it out for a short time: Have your fun, rise your mouth and/or brush your teeth, then put it back in. Even though we want people to have them in as close to 24 hours a day as possible, you’ve got to have a life. If you end up missing eight hours because you went out for a long dinner, then had drinks with friends, that’s OK. You’ll just keep that set of aligners in for an additional day. But if you’re doing that all the time, then that’s when you start having a little bit of trouble. Try to be consistent and then make up for lost time at the end of that aligner.
Will Brushing My Teeth 5x a Day Ruin My Enamel?
It’s not going to destroy your enamel unless you’re using a very hard toothbrush or you’re exerting excessive pressure. You want to be thorough, but gentle when you’re massaging your teeth and gums. The greater risk as opposed to destroying the enamel, would be over-brushing the gums and causing recession, which means the part of the gum that normally covers the root of your teeth is going down. All in all, you want to brush your teeth often, because you want good oral hygiene to keep your teeth and aligners clean.
What Do Clients Say Is the Hardest Part About the Treatment?
I think it’s the getting-used-to period. When you first put them in, many people have a lisp. Sometimes it takes people a couple of hours to get used to them, and sometimes it takes a couple of days or weeks. The other one is that it can make your mouth sore. You might have to eat softer foods at the beginning of each new aligner. And sometimes the aligners will scratch the inside of the cheeks a little bit, or people who are prone to active ulcers will get canker sores. Then the biggest challenge is integrating Invisalign aligners into your everyday life. People are used to just grabbing a handful of crackers, but you can’t really do that anymore: You need to pop the aligners out, snack, then brush your teeth, so getting into that rhythm is hard.
How Do Invisalign Aligners Compare to New Mail-Order Aligners?
I know there used to be some type of limited partnership between some of these do-it-yourself orthodontic organizations, which were using Invisalign’s older technology that’s entirely dependent on computer generation. We started having patients coming in and saying, “I spent this money with this mail-order orthodontic company, and I’m still unhappy with the way my teeth look.” There are no x-rays taken before or during treatment. We’ve actually had a case where someone came in with a large cyst in their jaw that had to be surgically removed. In short: Do it the right way. You want an expert—a human—to diagnose what’s going on with your gum and bone health. It’s less expensive, yeah, and some patients are willing to take that risk.
Are There Any Conditions That Could Be Worsened or Aggravated by Invisalign Treatment?
I don’t know about worsened, but when a patient comes in with a pre-existing TMJ situation [dysfunction in the jaw joint that causes pain], we’ll typically send them out to a specialist to have that diagnosed and taken care of before they come in. I don’t think there’s an association between the exacerbation of TMJ symptoms and Invisalign treatment, but who wants to be the test case? I don’t think I would like to explore that particular relationship personally. The same goes for people who wear night guards for grinding their teeth and chronic pain. If you have a severely, rotated tooth, Invisalign treatment might not be appropriate either, because there’s just not enough surface area that’s showing and the aligner might not be able to grasp the tooth and get the change we want. In that case, we’ll say you might need traditional braces for a couple months after. But those cases have decreased significantly.

DKNY will expand its fashion jewelry imprint through a partnership with The Swarovski Group.
The brand, a subsidiary of G-III Apparel since late 2016, has signed a multiyear licensing agreement with the Austrian gem purveyor.
The resulting DKNY jewelry will be available in all international markets except for North America and is set for a September 2019 retail launch.
The collection will include necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings — all priced at under 99 euro. There will be two collections issued per year.
“Swarovski’s superior craftsmanship, rich legacy and dedication to creating beautiful and attainable luxury accessories make [it] an ideal partner for the DKNY brand’s international launch into jewelry. “We look forward to growing the category with this iconic brand as our partner, and to continuing to extend the global reach of DKNY to consumers worldwide,” said Jeff Goldfarb, executive vice president for G-III Apparel Group.
“It is with great excitement that we enter into this partnership with DKNY. A truly iconic brand that is synonymous with modern fashion, the collection was developed with innovative designs, clever use of Swarovski crystals, and unparalleled attention to detail which perfectly reflects the dynamic energy of DKNY,” said Markus Langes-Swarovski, a member of Swarovski’s board.
DKNY is currently
“It’s just amazing how dynamic society is today, how global events just rear their heads and it changes the environment that you’re in, even the pace of what we do — everything,” said Clare Waight Keller.
The designer was talking about the genesis of her pre-fall collection for Givenchy, which was inspired by Joseph Cambell’s classic “The Power of Myth,” a book she turned to recently in an effort to make sense of an increasingly chaotic environment. The Greek myth of Icarus, whose hubris led to his demise, felt particularly relevant.
Waight Keller was drawn to its symbolism, in an era when nuclear war — or a Chinese consumer boycott — may be just an ill-judged social media message away. She also liked how it provided a graphic hook for the women’s and men’s looks, in the form of hand-painted prints and bursts of solar yellow and fiery red.
The women’s wardrobe was structured around two key silhouettes: long and lean for the tailored coats with neat shoulders, crisp bolero jackets with finlike arched sleeves, and monochrome evening gowns; boldly oversized for the fake furs, cocoon coats and Eighties-style leather trenches.
Hand-crafted details abounded, from the threaded ruching on the front of a buttery
LONDON — Jonathan Anderson is looking to the Eighties works of Gilbert & George, and specifically their early street shots of East End boys, for a men’s and women’s capsule that will launch Dec. 3 at Matchesfashion.com.
JW Anderson x Gilbert & George is part of the designer’s spring/summer 2019 collection and is meant to celebrate the artists, their take on masculinity and British modern life. Anderson has focused on three of his favorite works by the artistic duo: “Guard Plants” (1980), “Dog Boy” (1980) and “Heavy” (1988).
Gilbert & George’s candid shots of “normal” kids on the streets of London’s East End helped to make them famous, and by the end of the decade, works such as Heavy had become more stylized and reflective of the duo’s love of William Blake’s poetry.
“Guard Plants” shows the face of a boy in military-style uniform framed by leaves and vines in intense primary colors, while “Dog Boy” is a black-and-white shot of a teenage kid flanked by rows of flowers in full bloom. “Heavy” shows three dreamy young men floating in the sky with hair that looks as if it’s on fire.

Johnny “King Nerd” Dowell has teamed with Master and Dynamic.
The London-based artist, who graduated from Central Saint Martins, has hand-engraved 10 MH40 Over-Ear headphones.
Dowell, who spent 15 years engraving at James Purdey and Sons, a British gunmaker, is known for working with some leading watch brands but had more room to play with this partnership.
“The sleek and modern designs of Master and Dynamic headphones combined with the premium quality and materials have always stood out to me as a product with engraving potential and here we are,” said Dowell. “For this particular project I was inspired by a traditional scrolling style, which starts with a nice curve and features ornate details that flow back and forth between the patterns, juxtaposing classic techniques with contemporary product.”
The headphones, which retail for $ 999, are available to purchase now. Master and Dynamic has previously worked with filmmaker Sam Kolder and architect David Adjaye.
“Lisbon is the coolest, it’s like a melting pot of all of your different cities.…It doesn’t feel like it’s fully finalized its identity, which I love, because you’re still discovering and it’s not like every tourist is at the same place,” designer Tanya Taylor said of her first trip to Portugal in August. From her travels, Taylor brought back the breezy, coastal spirit and infused it into her latest pre-fall collection.
Shapes felt clean and fresh, cut slimmer with flirty open-back details or slightly puffed sleeves in place of the anticipated abundance of ruffles. “Everything just felt so easy and soft and kind of feminine,” Tanya described of Portugal, which she infused into her line à la a palette of classic blues (from navy to “minty-turquoise”) and purples in various artful floral prints, as well as black-and-white polka dots, on easy dresses and flowy skirts. Newness came through knits: electric lime pointelle and chunky, striped terry-cloth-matching cardigans and little cropped sweaters, sporty knit dresses.
Taylor rounded out the collection with a group of red and blue surfer étoile printed pieces inspired by her time at Gigi’s Beach Bar in the Portuguese Algarve region. The collection embodied Taylor description of her girl:
A clutch of bespectacled Angelenos joined luxury eyewear brand Oliver Peoples on Thursday to fete the launch of the Assouline tome “California as We See It.” Cohosted by photographer and Los Angeles style arbiter Lisa Eisner, who penned the book’s foreword, the party drew Shaun Ross, Levi Dylan, William Peltz, Stormi Henley, Markus Molinari, Brad Elterman, Lorenza Izzo, Ivan Olita and Tasya van Ree, along with Oliver Peoples chief executive officer Rocco Basilico and creative director Giampiero Tagliaferri.
“Do you remember their first shop?” asked Eisner of the Sunset Plaza store a few blocks down the street. “It was right in the middle of all this history — George Hurrell’s studio, Billy Haines’ showroom, Adrian’s shop. Then there were all the rock clubs like The Whiskey a Go Go and The Roxy.” She also pointed out the pioneering retailer Charles Gallay — the first boutique in the U.S. to carry Azzedine Alaïa — and the location used for the apartment of Richard Gere’s character in “American Gigolo.”
“That’s sort of the area in which we played, and when I bought my first pair of Oliver Peoples in the Eighties, we were like this clique,” she said. Eisner has also photographed several campaigns

Los Angeles-based running shoe brand Athletic Propulsion Labs (APL) has partnered with The Woolmark Company on the first technical-knit shoe to hit the global market with the wool certification trademark.
The TechLoom Breeze Merino Wool collection is APL’s most sustainable and lightest running shoe to date, made with 80 percent Australian merino wool and knitted with APL’s patented, stretch-rebound TechLoom upper to deliver strength, greater elasticity and maximum support during performance and sports lifestyle activities. It’s the first launch in a series of long-term certified wool product collaborations between APL and The Woolmark Company.
Over two years in development, the certified Wool Rich Blend engineered knit is designed to keep its shape using filament-wrapped wool yarns to add resistance to abrasion and extend wear. The yarns are also stain- and odor-resistant, naturally regulating the temperature of feet. Utilizing the latest fully fashioned knitting technology, the shoe is knitted to its final shape, reducing the amount of fabric waste often caused by regular cut-and-sew techniques. The knitting technology also allows for seamless design features such as breathable panels. Other popular brands such as Allbirds offer wool sneakers, but APL has taken a more “luxury performance” stance in the market.
Cofounder Adam Goldston explained, “After
Real or faux? As the great fur debate has moved brands passionately one way or the other, Sally LaPointe has kept her cool. The designer has become synonymous with covetable fur-accented sweaters and, with the launch of e-commerce earlier this year, has certainly seen a demand for mink. But she also introduced faux fur and shearling for resort and has seen interest here from a younger, more conscientious clientele.
She continued to expand that fur language into pre-fall, using fox fur as trimming on cozy-yet-sleek knitwear while utilizing faux fur and shearling in bold, statement outerwear. The brand is founded upon the principle of casual yet cool glam, so a faux-fur duster was grounded with a cut-and-sew wool alpaca set or sequined pants and a turtleneck, topped off by silver o-ring zipper pulls.
