The pandemic might have forced Gold’s Gym into bankruptcy court, but that hasn’t stopped the fitness brand from forging ahead.
The company has teamed with Puma for the first time on a performance apparel and footwear collection intended to be worn both in the gym and on the streets.
The Puma x Gold’s Gym limited-edition collection features men’s, women’s and unisex apparel line as well as training footwear and retro-inspired apparel and accessories. That includes the LQD Cell Hydra Gold’s Gym Shoe, which features a stable, cushioned midsole, rubber outsole and lateral wrap-ups for stability.
The apparel offering includes a unisex tank featuring the Gold’s Gym logo and a removable patch at the front hem, along with DryCell technology to keep the wearer dry. There is also a hoodie with a relaxed silhouette, roomy sleeves, raw-edge detail and a vintage-inspired Gold’s Gym design. A bodysuit features an inner bra with elastic taping detail and a Puma x Gold’s Gym graphic in the center. Other pieces include cropped tops, tank tops and woven jackets and pants along with a gym bag and backpack.
The collection will retail from $ 40 to $ 100 and be sold beginning today on the Puma and Gold’s Gym e-commerce sites and
Fila is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Notorious B.I.G’s famous debut album, “Ready to Die,” by creating a special collection.
The sporting goods brand partnered with the Christopher Wallace Estate on the six-piece Fila x Biggie Collection, which includes a T-shirt and visor from the Fila archives as well as a new sneaker model, each offered in two colorways.
The collection will be sold beginning today on the Fila web site and on May 21, in honor of the late rapper’s birthday, it will be expanded to select specialty retailers.
“We created this exclusive collection to honor a groundbreaking album, artist and pop culture icon who has left a lasting impact in the music world and beyond,” said Louis W. Colon 3rd, vice president of heritage and trend for Fila North America. “The era’s most iconic hip-hop stars embraced the Fila brand, with memorable looks. In 1993, Biggie took the stage in Philadelphia wearing the T-shirt and matching visor that are part of the collaborative collection today.”
The graphic T as well as the visor, both of which retail for $ 25, are available in white and aqua as well as cream. The T-shirt features a scribble design inside an enlarged Fila “F.”
Jeffree Star, one of the world’s biggest beauty influencers, has responded to the backlash he’s faced for his upcoming “Cremated” makeup collection.
The beauty vlogger and brand founder posted a 20-minute video on his YouTube channel Wednesday talking about his namesake beauty brand’s upcoming eye shadow palette, called the Cremated Palette, which has been met with criticism over its insensitive theme amid the coronavirus crisis.
“Nothing ever comes from a bad place, so if you were thinking that, absolutely not,” he said in the video while sporting a gothic-themed makeup look created from the palette. “My brand, I created this to make people smile. I created a brand for all the weirdos and the people that didn’t really feel like they fit in, so in no way was this created to be offensive ever.”

Tanya Taylor has teamed with Summersalt, a direct-to-consumer apparel brand, to launch Summersalt x Tanya Taylor swimwear today.
This is Summersalt’s first designer collaboration.
The limited-edition Brushstroke Collection of swimwear blends Taylor’s signature hand-painted prints with the classic shapes of Summersalt’s size-inclusive suits.
Taylor’s spring 2020 collection inspired the brand’s first swimwear collection. The offering, which is for one season, will be sold on Summersalt.com and Tanyataylor.com.
The Brushstroke Collection is being introduced with six styles, including five swimwear pieces and a wrap skirt, and features details such as bows and belts. Retail prices range from $ 60 for a bikini bottom to $ 125 for a one-piece swimsuit and the wrap skirt.
Among the styles are the wrap-one piece, which will retail for $ 125; the tie backflip for $ 125, the tie marina bikini top for $ 65 and the high-leg, high-rise bottom for $ 60. A wrap skirt is $ 125. Some of the swimsuits range from sizes 2-22, while others go from 2-14 and 2-12. The wrap skirt is offered in sizes XS to 2X.
Summersalt works with premium recycled materials to make its swimsuits. The brand uses recycled fishing nets in the yarn to create a sustainable fabric with five times the stretch of a regular swimsuit.

In honor of Mother’s Day, Janie and Jack, the children’s wear retailer, will release a new limited-edition all-pink collection to spread breast cancer awareness. The Think Pink Collection benefits The Pink Agenda, a nonprofit committed to funding breast cancer research and granting wishes through FAB-U-WISH.

The Think Pink Collection will donate 25 percent of sales to The Pink Agenda and FAB-U-WISH during the campaign period from May 11 through June 21. The all-pink collection includes styles not only for newborns, boys and girls, but coordinating looks for the whole family.

You’ve never heard of Kuala Pilah. The peaceful village is tucked out of the way in the middle of the Malaysia. But you may start seeing the faces and scenes of traditional life in the village as seen through the eyes of one of its young artists, providing the colorful inspiration for Vans Surf’s latest apparel collection, the Kide Collaboration, which drops today.
“When I am riding my bike, I always love observing the small town and village where I grew up,” says the collab’s namesake artist, Malaysian graphic designer Kide Baharudin. “I like to imagine how the place looked back in the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s. I try to find the story through my parents’ childhood. I illustrate this in my paintings. I think that was my inspiration.”
Vans was certainly inspired by Baharudin’s work, elevating the talented young painter after he won the Vans Asia Custom Culture contest in 2017 and illustrated the House of Vans Asia Tour poster. He’s been part of the family since.
And the artist is in good company when it comes to footwear trends. Walk down any street in the developed world and you get a sense of the influence of Vans, transcending the boardsports and music worlds in the past five years to arrive on a much broader cross-section of feet: from mall kids to 40-something accountants looking to accent their athleisure wear.
“The word ‘culture’ really caught my eye and inspired me to enter the competition,” Kide says, “I got excited about painting Malaysian history, culture and lifestyle onto the Vans Authentic shoe, so that skaters could learn about our culture.”
The result is a colorful and bold summer collection consisting of a Vans Slip-On crafted with water-based inks and glues on a white/marshmallow colorway with collapsible kick-down heel and UltraCush sockliner for updated comfort.
“My first Vans shoe was the Old Skool,” he adds. “In college, I loved collecting and reading Juxtapoz magazine. I saw most of the artists in the magazine painting and creating art in their Vans. It influenced my style while working in my studio, too.”
Vans also adds an Authentic SF and Slide-On with similar Kide artwork to the new line. They’re matched with a ready-to-party camp button-down of 100 percent Rayon, a 17-inch, four-way stretch tri-blend boardshort, plus a simple 16.5-liter backpack and a pair of hip hats.
Harvey Nichols and Chinatown Market are giving one lucky customer the opportunity to design a T-shirt.
The luxury retailer and the streetwear brand are launching a capsule collection on the Harvey Nichols web site, including ready-to-wear, accessories and lifestyle products such as a football and ping-pong table, and to coincide with the collection, the partners are giving one customer the opportunity to design a T-shirt with support from Chinatown Market founder Mike Cherman and president Dan Altmann.
The two will serve as virtual consultants for the winner, who will also receive all of the profits from the sales of the T-shirt, which will be exclusively available at Harvey Nichols.
“Harvey Nichols’ commitment to championing creativity and unique points of view within the industry is something that Chinatown Market has admired for a long time,” said Cherman, who has collaborated with Puma, Converse, Lacoste, Akila Sunglasses and even comedian and talk show host Conan O’Brien.
Harvey Nichols head of men’s wear Chris Mcilroy added, “We’re thrilled to offer Harvey Nichols’ customers the opportunity to converse with Chinatown Market, which is known for its refreshing approach to streetwear and boundless creativity.”
California-based ath-leisure label Legends has launched its Mamba x Legends collaboration collection, a partnership between the brand and Mamba & Mambacita Sports Academy in honor of Kobe and Gianna Bryant.
The 10-piece collection is comprised of sportswear and apparel such as T-shirts, hoodies and athletic shorts and socks, all bearing the Legends and Mamba & Mambacita Sports Academy logos and ranging in price from $ 20 to $ 105.
Legends has been the official apparel provider for Mamba & Mambacita Sports Academy since the program’s launch in 2018. Previously, only members and athletes affiliated with the program received the apparel, but this launch, which is a limited release of 1,000 units in total, is the first time the branded apparel is available to the public.
The brand decided to launch now to boost morale for the global basketball community that was deeply impacted by death of the Bryants and their fellow passengers from the helicopter accident in January, as well as the suspension of the NBA season due to the coronavirus. The collection is intended to celebrate the Bryants’ lives, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Mamba & Mambacita Sports Academy.
Things move pretty fast in the city. If you want to navigate it and enjoy everything that urban life has to offer, you need to be quick on your feet, comfortable, and able to transition seamlessly through a range of moods and environments. Ask any savvy urbanite, and they’ll tell you that having a wardrobe that can keep up is absolutely essential. Which is why we love Kenneth Cole’s new spring collection. Versatile and dripping with style, these picks are a perfect match for modern city living.
We recently put some of KC’s Techni-Cole shoes to the test while exploring New York City with full-time electrician and renowned mens fashion bloggerEric Wertz (how’s that for a resume?). As both an expert on laid-back-yet-tasteful menswear and a Brooklyn native, he was the perfect guide for shopping the Techni-Cole line and seeking out hidden gems across the city. From cutting edge urban farming to making the next great American whiskey and more, there’s so much to discover in New York—all you need is an adventurous spirit, and some quality staple pieces to keep you comfortable and looking good. Read on for our guide to some of the city’s best kept secrets and the Techni-Cole shoes that are must-haves for any urban explorer.
Here’s one thing you probably didn’t expect to find in the five boroughs: A sprawling farm perched on a rooftop. Since launching in 2009, Gotham Greens has become a leader in sustainable urban farming thanks to its high-tech approach to growing crops. All of the company’s produce is grown inside climate-controlled greenhouses—including a 60,000-square foot rooftop space in Queens—and the company uses machine learning technology to monitor plant health, cut back on energy and water use, and produce impressively high yields.
Whether you’re exploring a greenhouse or meeting up with friends, you need footwear that’s up for anything. What you need is a pair of Kenneth Cole Mello Lace-Up Oxfords. With their leather upper and breathable textile sock lining, these versatile kicks strike just the right balance between sporty and refined. They’re also built for all-day comfort: PImpact Pods in the sole provide optimal cushioning, and a grooved outsole helps the shoe flex with your feet. That means you can go from brunch to bike to hurry-up-and-catch-that train with ease.
There are few Brooklyn neighborhoods more iconic than Bushwick, a renowned haven for street art and home to a constantly growing assortment of unique bars and restaurants. If you like getting off the beaten path (and avoiding crowds of tourists), this is the place to be. Murals abound, and walking the streets is a great way to experience the incredible range of art. If you’re looking for a guide, check out the guided street art tour from Brooklyn Unplugged—starting at 10:30 a.m. daily, it’s a great way to see some of the neighborhood’s best pieces. Then you can cap things off with a tasty pie from Roberta’s.
We spent some time pounding the pavement to scope out Bushwick’s hot spots, and the Kenneth Cole Liam Sneaker was the perfect companion. With a sleek leather upper that you can dress up or down, a triple-layer cushioned midsole, and a breathable microfiber interior lining, these shoes can mesh with any outfit and keep your feet comfy through a day of urban trekking.
Kentucky isn’t the only place with award-winning bourbon. You can also find top-shelf whiskey in New York: Just head directly to Kings County Distillery. It’s the oldest and largest distillery in the city, and it’s located in a historic building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard (an area that’s definitely worth checking out). Every Kings County whiskey is mashed, fermented, distilled, and aged onsite, and there are several varieties to choose from (even a delicious chocolate whiskey flavored with cacao bean husks). Pop in for a tasting at the Gatehouse room any day, or stop by for a tour of the full distillery on Wednesday through Sunday afternoons.
It might not feel like it yet, but spring and summer are around the corner, and the Liam Leather Slip-On Sneaker makes a great addition to any warm weather outfit. Put simply, there’s a lot to love about this shoe. The lightweight sole features the Techni-Cole Rebound System for top-notch shock absorption and extra support, a memory foam insole provides a soft step-in feel, and a breathable lining will keep your feet cool when the mercury rises.
The Yotel makes a great home base for exploring New York for the weekend. Located on the far west side of Manhattan, it’s just a few blocks from the High Line and the brand new Hudson Yards development. It might be the most tech-friendly hotel in the city: each room comes equipped with a smart TV and fully adjustable Smart Bed, and luggage is handled by a Yobot—a “robotic luggage concierge” that will keep your bags safe in one of 150 storage bins. And after a full day of adventures, you can relax and unwind with a cocktail on the hotel’s expansive outdoor terrace, one of the largest of any hotel in the city.
You can’t bring your whole closet with you when traveling, which is why we like the Nolan Bit Strap Snake Detail Loafer—it can pull double duty as a dress shoe and a casual shoe. The rich leather upper is refined enough for formal occasions, but the snakeskin details add some extra personality and help these shoes fit in well with more casual looks. There’s no compromise on comfort, either: A flexible rubber outsole and a padded footbed will keep your feet happy no matter where your day takes you.

After five years selling sophisticated activewear to men, Rhone is taking the plunge into women’s.
But the move should not be viewed as a full-on entry into the women’s arena, its founders stressed. Rather, it’s intended to honor the contributions of the women who work for the company and is being launched during Women’s History Month.
The capsule collection will be offered for sale only on the company’s web site beginning March 2. It will include tanks, hoodies, leggings and joggers created from Italian fabrics treated with the company’s GoldFusion technology, a proprietary process that infuses gold particles into the highest-performing fabrics and is soft, fast-drying, long-lasting and odor neutral. In addition, the leggings are made from sustainable fabrics created from reclaimed and recycled fishing nets removed from the world’s oceans.
The collection will retail for $ 64 to $ 138.
Nate Checketts, cofounder, said, “Let me be clear, we are not launching women’s wear. This is an extremely tight, limited capsule collection that really celebrates the women in our lives who have helped propel this brand forward.” Even so, he said he expects the collection to sell out quickly.
Checketts didn’t completely rule out eventually expanding Rhone into women’s wear, but said that if and when
Amor Oral announced today that it has added five new flavors to its lineup, set to be released in time for spring. The new flavors include Peach Mango, Licorice, Tangerine, Pomegranate and Banana. XBIZ.com – Pleasure & Retail
A thousand years have passed since a dragon has been seen in the world. Science and technology have replaced magic, which has dwindled until it has become little more than an element of myth and legend.  There are those who still have dragon blood flowing through their veins, distant descendants of the mighty creatures of old. These rare humans have the power to cast magic, the power to heal, and the power to craft alchemical weapons capable of starting wars… or ending them. But they are feared for those powers, and in recent centuries, they have been hunted nearly to extinction.  The few remaining survivors must find a way to change how humanity perceives them or be lost to the world forever.  The Dragon Blood Collection includes three full-length novels of action, magic, and romance:  Balanced on the Blade’s Edge  Deathmaker  Blood Charged
During the holidays, we put a lot of focus on time. After all, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. But how frequently do we stop to think about time itself—the importance of seconds, minutes, hours—and how we spend them? We take time off from work to spend time with loved ones and we spend too much time searching and shopping for the perfect holiday gift. BOSS offers an incredible collection of watches that will help you save valuable time this holiday season and help cross off every guy on your list (but it’s up to you to decide who is naughty or nice).
BOSS’ new timepieces, known simply as The Collection, offer an opportunity to give truly meaningful gifts this holiday. These watches perfectly combine style and performance, allowing the modern man to shift easily from day to night, from boardroom to ballroom, from office to oceanside.
The Collection includes three statement-making timepieces inspired by open skies, urban streets, and broad horizons. Each piece is an invitation to the guy in your life to write his own story which starts with a thoughtful gift from you.
Designed around the needs of the modern wayfarer, this versatile timepiece will prove a constant and sturdy companion for the adventurer in your life—no matter where their wanderlust takes them. The ultimate marriage of function and style, the Nomad features dual-time and date functions, a rotating reflector ring with 24 global city codes, a world timer and GMT functionality—not to mention a unique, engraved globe illustration on the case back.
Inspired by the wild blue yonder, the Aero brings a sense of endless possibility into any traveler’s wardrobe. Crafted with pilots in mind, the Aero’s fearless design features an engraved airplane design on the case back, a stainless steel case and a black sunray dial.
A timepiece that calls to mind the ocean’s endless sense of adventure, the Vela proves the perfect marriage of technology and possibility. Here is a true seafarer’s watch, with an engraved case back featuring a unique wave design. And the unidirectional dive bezel ensures the wearer is fully in control of the time he spends underwater.
TEAM PLAYER: According to Acne Studios creative director Jonny Johansson, the inspiration for the label’s capsule collection with basketball player Russell Westbrook was simple: “Denim and Russell — nothing more, nothing less.”
After casting the Houston Rockets point guard in its spring 2019 campaign, the Swedish label is continuing its creative partnership with Westbrook by debuting a 10-piece denim-heavy men’s wear collection, which includes outerwear, oversize shirts, jeans and shorts.
Launching Oct. 28, the capsule was teased by Westbrook himself, who wore some of the pieces to attend the Acne Studios men’s spring 2020 show in Paris. Prices start at 280 euros, or $ 310, for a pair of shorts, while jeans are priced at 320 euros, or $ 355, and jackets 550 euros, or $ 610.
In addition to an Eighties-style light blue acid wash denim, the boxy silhouettes were also done in a turquoise version, Westbrook’s favorite color. The hue was used on a half-zip Windbreaker featuring a large patch pocket on the front and drawstring hem as well as a denim utility vest with oversized front pockets and piping along the seams.
Russell Westbrook models a silhouette from his collection with Acne Studios.

From his Tom Ford suits to his Aston Martin cars, James Bond is legendary for his classic, sartorial style. He’s also comfortable in a cashmere sweater, which is where N.Peal comes in.
In “Skyfall,” the 2012 installation of the series, the stylist for the film turned to N.Peal cashmere when she was searching for a lightweight blue sweater that would match the eye color of its star, Daniel Craig. The relationship continued with 2015’s “Spectre” where N.Peal’s cashmere knits were used in that film as well.
The next film, “No Time to Die,” is due out in April, and Adam Holdsworth, the owner and managing director of the U.K.-based N.Peal, is closing to finalizing a deal to become one of the official partners for the film. But while the ink may not be dry on the contract yet, that hasn’t stopped N.Peal from creating N.Peal 007, a cashmere collection that celebrates 50 years of Bond. It will be offered for sale beginning on Oct. 18 on the N.Peal site, at its five stores in London and one in New York, as well as on Farfetch.
The collection features 13 pieces covering the six actors who have played Bond over the past half-century. This

It ain’t just for cowboys anymore.
Wrangler, a brand created initially for the professional rodeo cowboy, is now cozying up to the high-fashion community.
Last month, the brand opened a six-week-long pop-up at Fred Segal’s Los Angeles flagship to showcase a capsule collection of modern interpretations of archival pieces from four pivotal times in its history: 1919 as well as the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties.
Now it is partnering with Opening Ceremony on a reinterpretation of some of its key products from the Eighties and Nineties. Called Value, the collection includes oversize cargo pants, wide-leg jeans and graphic Ts in heavyweight fabrics. There are also checked shirts, hooded popper jackets with retro colorblocking and boxy jeans with zip-off legs.
The collection’s name is a nod to the mass merchants that sold the original versions of the pieces. But the new Value collection, which is made from all organic cotton, has more of a street style vibe and is being produced in limited quantities. The collection is being sold exclusively at Opening Ceremony stores and on its web site beginning Thursday. The collection will range in price from $ 40 for a T-shirt and $ 70 for a rugby shirt to $ 140 for a zippered jacket.
LONDON — Mr Porter is taking the big screen to the computer screen for the third time, launching the latest iteration of the Kingsman costume-to-collection collaboration.
The first drop will arrive in December ahead of the film’s release in February. Mr Porter has been working directly with the filmmaker Matthew Vaughn and costume designer Michele Clapton, who said the pieces in the retail collection “look as appropriate in the film’s period as they do in contemporary settings.”
The third film is called “The King’s Man,” and is set to be released on Feb. 14 and features an ensemble cast that includes Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode and Tom Hollander. The collection will drop in two phases with a total of 255 pieces. They include ready-to-wear and accessories such as ties, pocket squares and umbrellas, all signature items relating to the movie’s costumes.
Other items that will drop in December will include items from the first costume-to-collection range such as Turnbull & Asser shirts, George Cleverley shoes and Cutler & Gross eyewear. Two new products and brands will be introduced to the line — a limited-edition timepiece from Jaeger-LeCoultre and a writing instrument from Montblanc, both reflecting the growing watch and
NEW YORK – Anne Barge celebrated its 20th anniversary Thursday with a New York fashion show and a one-night retrospective, and creative director Shawne Jacobs is planning for the company’s next chapter.
A graduate of the American Intercontinental University in Atlanta, she joined the company in 2001. In 2012, during a trip to one of the company’s factories in China, Jacobs and her husband learned of Barge’s succession idea. “She saw us really working together as a team. Me working as creative director designing for the brand and my husband running the financial side of it,” Jacobs said.
For Thursday night’s Anne Barge runway show, gowns from the namesake’s archives were reimagined to infuse new elements to some traditional and classic styles. The result led to architectural designs made with Italian Kalika and allover floral Alençon laces for more feminine accents. There were also tulle designs with 3-D textures and metallic floral embroidery. To give brides-to-be more youthful options, the company offered jumpsuits, bustiers and illusion necklines.
Having attended its first bridal market in China in July, the company aims to build sales in China, which is not overflowing with Western bridal designers. In addition, brides in China typically wear four or five different
Supreme is one of the hottest brands on the street these days. That much, we all know.

The Lacoste x Supreme Collection is available now at Lacoste.com.
The line includes sweats, jackets, pullovers, caps, and beanies—as well as one of the coolest bombers we’ve see so far this season, if not EVER (it’s shown above). With Supreme’s street-savvy style and Lacoste’s legendary quality and performance—and of course, its iconic crocodile logo—this Lacoste x Supreme collection is on fire.
But if you want in, you’d best hurry. We had several pieces picked out for this roundup, but had to cut them when we found they were already sold out! This collection just went on sale this morning. So clearly, these items are moving fast. So get over to Lacoste right now and pick up some sweet streetwear that’s court-ready, post-gym optimal, and sidewalk cool.
All Lacoste x Supreme garments feature a SUPREME logo embroidered in various locations, some obvious and others, not so much. And of course, the classic Lacoste crocodile (it’s not an alligator!) is strategically placed somewhere on the garment. All items are unisex, too, so even the ladies can get in on the action.
Be advised Lacoste and Supreme clearly knew this collection was going to go fast. So orders are limited to three items per customer—and multiple customer orders will not be allowed.
So head over to Lacoste and pick up three items in the Lacoste x Supreme limited-edition capsule collection. This be one of the most sought-after lines this autumn on the street, in the gym, or on campus. Bank on it.
ZILVER LINING: Recycled nylon, organic cotton and vegan leather made from apples are at the core of Pedro Lourenço’s new collection for Zilver, a London-based collection that is in its third season.
“In order to move the brand forward, it is important to remember the end goal, which is to be part of a collective revolution that changes the way we produce and consume products, without destroying the planet. For us, it means to continue investing in innovative materials and new methods of production,” he added.
The spring collection is filled with certified organic cotton, while a vegan leather jacket is made from apples. Shirts are done in recycled denim and nylon, while all the specific information about the materials used in the collection will be on the garment tags.
He also put an accent on multitasking pieces: Black and white blazers and trench coats can be transformed into gilets or jackets with zips.
Last year he spoke to WWD about the importance of creating “conscious pieces” and getting as close as he can to 100 percent sustainability, although “it’s still not possible to be 100 percent sustainable,” he said.
His spring 2020 collection was rooted in astrology and specifically the Gemini zodiac.

Rachel Zoe is once again tapping into the children’s market. The designer and celebrity stylist has teamed with Janie and Jack, a division of Gap Inc., to launch the Rachel Zoe x Janie and Jack collection in stores this November.
The line features a variety of girls’ and boys’ clothing and accessories inspired by the holiday season and the things Zoe loves, such as gold, sparkle, texture and statement pieces. One-hundred percent of net proceeds from the collection will benefit Baby2Baby, a nonprofit organization that provides children living in poverty with basic necessities.
Over the years, Zoe has collaborated on different children’s projects, having recently launched a home decor collection with Pottery Barn Kids and Pottery Barn Teen. She said it helped her a lot when jumping into the mind-set of designing a children’s fashion line for Janie and Jack. “I feel like I was fully immersed in the creative space to design from a child’s perspective both apparel and home.” Last year, she curated favorite picks at Gymboree that were sold in-store and online.
The Janie and Jack Party collection features 38 pieces in sizes 12 to 18 months to 12 years, with retail prices ranging from $ 18 to $ 169. Pieces range
The iconic tennis brand Prince is back in a big way, with retro-inspired styles that hearken back to the vibrant 80s. Bold colors, exciting patterns, and a healthy splash of Miami pink and blue are hallmarks of the tennis-inspired line of streetwear. And now, Prince teams with Round Two Vintage founder Sean Wotherspoon for a new line of Prince gear.
The Prince X Sean Wotherspoon Collection takes a vintage aesthetic and modernizes it for an eye-catching limited-edition streetwear capsule, with tennis at its core. The 8-piece capsule consists of inside-out printed tees, crewneck sweatshirts, mesh shorts, sweatpants, and the notorious Prince tracksuit. Performance-driven comfort is the key, and it’s ideal for both on and off the court.
Drawing inspiration from the Memphis Design style of geometric patterns and prints that reigned supreme in ‘80s fashion, Wotherspoon developed signature graphics for the new collection. Remaining true the brand’s roots, check out Sean’s generous use of tennis ball yellow throughout the assortment. The unisex gear is perfect for active individuals with a sense of street style. It’s cozy, comfortable technical apparel that’s as at home on the playing field as South Beach nights.
David Grutman, creative director for Prince, tapped Wotherspoon to bring his unique perspective to the heritage brand. Both Grutman and Wotherspoon have a shared appreciation and respect for retro gear, so it’s no surprise the longtime friends have linked up to bring us this new line.

Kurt Cobain may be gone but he’s not forgotten.
The late Nirvana frontman, who took his own life in 1994, was an artist as well as a singer. Today, The End of Music LLC and Live Nation Merchandise will release the Kurt Was Here collection, which is based entirely on Cobain’s artwork.
This lineup of T-shirts and hoodies feature Cobain’s handwritten journal entries, sketches, paintings and drawings. Each item was curated and designed under the creative direction of Frances Bean Cobain, his 27-year-old daughter with Courtney Love.
The collection will be sold at Barneys New York, Selfridges and online. A percentage of the sales from KurtCobainShop.com will be donated to the Jed Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the emotional health and preventing suicide for teens and young adults.
Short-sleeve T-shirts will retail for $ 113, long-sleeves are $ 138 and a hoodie is $ 188.
A coffee table book and limited-edition fine art prints will be offered later this year. And additional product and retailers are expected to be added next year.
A spokesperson from Live Nation explained why this is the right time to create a Kurt Cobain collection.
“We believe that the importance of art is exceedingly potent in today’s social and political climate
“It’s about beauty. I have never been edgy and cool. I don’t know how to do it. I want to do my best version of beauty,” said Jason Wu backstage at his spring show, held at Pier 17 in a postindustrial venue with large windows offering a spectacular view of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Is there anything wrong with wanting to create beautiful clothes? Not at all. Especially when a designer like Wu succeeds in interpreting what is classic, sophisticated and feminine with a fresh, lively touch.
This season, Wu wanted to give a different twist to the idea of beauty he normally conveys with his clothes, which usually have a polished, “perfect” look. So he played with hand-washed fabrics, textures, sun-bleached effects, raw cut edges and intentionally unfinished details to give his elegant creations a lived-in, poetic and intriguing vibe.
The mood of slightly decadent romanticism was inspired by the images of fragile, dried flowers of Wu’s friend, photographer Maxime Poiblanc.
His nocturnal-looking flowers were printed on a washed-silk pencil skirt worn with a coordinated bralette and a lightweight trenchcoat, as well as with an exquisitely draped dress punctuated by tiny crystal embroideries.
Leather was also treated to obtain an imperfect, wrinkled
An enforcer wanted dead for crimes she didn’t commit… An assassin wanted dead for crimes he did commit… Normally, they would be enemies, but they both seek the same thing: exoneration. Unfortunately, a nefarious underground organization is attempting to kill the one man who could grant it to them, the emperor. If they want to win their freedom, they’ll have to battle powerful wizards, outscheme master schemers, and defeat bloodthirsty monsters, all while dodging friendly fire and evading the law. Exoneration isn’t easy. This boxed set includes the first three novels in this high fantasy adventure series: The Emperor’s Edge Dark Currents Deadly Games.
John Locke was an English philosopher and physician, widely regarded as one of the most influential of Enlightenment thinkers and commonly known as the "Father of Liberalism". Considered one of the first of the British empiricists, following the tradition of Sir Francis Bacon, he is equally important to social contract theory. His work greatly affected the development of epistemology and political philosophy. His writings influenced Voltaire and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, many Scottish Enlightenment thinkers, as well as the American revolutionaries. His contributions to classical republicanism and liberal theory are reflected in the United States Declaration of Independence. The John Locke Collection features: An Essay Concerning Human Understanding A Defence Of Mr. Locke’s Opinion Concerning Personal Identity Of The Conduct Of The Understanding Elements Of Natural Philosophy A New Method Of A Common-Place-Book A Letter To The Right Reverend Edward, Lord Bishop Of Worcester, Concerning Some Passages Relating To Mr. Locke’s Essay Of Human Understanding Mr. Locke’s Reply To The Right Reverend The Lord Bishop Of Worcester’s Answer To His Letter, Concerning Some Passages Relating To Mr. Locke’s Essay Of Human Understanding An Answer To Remarks Upon An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, &C Mr. Locke’s Reply To The Right Reverend The Lord Bishop Of Worcester’s Answer To His Second Letter Mr. Locke’s Reply To The Bishop Of Worcester’s Answer To His Second Letter Some Considerations Of The Consequences Of The Lowering Of Interest, And Raising The Value Of Money.

Bldwn, an American fashion brand, is collaborating with Kansas City’s Major League Soccer team, Sporting Kansas City, on a limited-edition collection that takes you right to left field.
“We want to tell our local story on a global stage. We have a passion for fashion and sports, so we want to push the boundaries of what this type of collaboration can do to bring people together,” said John Moncke, vice president of brand revenue and stadium at Sporting Kansas City. “Sporting and Bldwn began in KC, and we’re both representing the local area far beyond.”
The partnership was a special connection from the beginning, with Bldwn and Sporting Kansas City desiring to place the fan, who may also be a customer, at the heart of local sports culture.
“I’ve known Matt Baldwin [founder of Bldwn], and the collaboration has happened behind the scenes for a long time. I’ve picked his brain about things like our uniform design to branded events that we have hosted for fans,” Moncke added. “One of our conversations even led to building a soccer field on the roof of a building for an event a few years ago.”
SKC x Bldwn emphasizes comfort and community, with each piece celebrating Sporting
Professional surfer Sam Hammer has been teaching people to surf and riding waves across the globe for more than two decades. From X-Games competitions to catching swells around his native East Coast, Hammer has certainly stared down his share of jaw-dropping breaks. So Men’s Journal decided to task Hammer with a very different kind of challenge: Grab a board and surf wearing nothing but a pair of boxer briefs from Ted Baker’s new underwear collection.
Most people would balk at the idea of striding down the beach in their underwear, but Hammer is braver than most. He gladly swapped his board shorts for a set of Ted Baker briefs and headed into the ocean—and he looked damn good, too.
Even when stripped down to his skivvies, Hammer was the consummate professional. After watching him paddle out and carve up some mellow swells like he was born on a surfboard, we started to wonder if surfing in your underwear, rather than being a challenge, is actually a good idea. Especially since Ted Baker’s new collection contains such high-quality products: Each pair is made from 90 percent modal, an incredibly soft, sustainable fabric derived from beech trees, and 10 percent spandex, so they flex with you as you move.
Even Hammer was impressed with the underwear, and found they held up well while he was out in the waves. That came as no surprise; these aren’t your average bargain-bin briefs. In addition to being soft and flexible, Ted Baker engineered this underwear to wick moisture, built them with non-chafing flatlock seams, and replaced pesky tags with a soft interior heatseal. That means they’ll keep you comfy when you start to sweat, and they won’t itch or irritate your skin (even when you’re paddling around in the ocean, it turns out). Of course, you don’t have to be a surfer to appreciate those features. Whether you’re hiking, biking, or just going about your work day, these briefs really shine.
And who said underwear has to be boring? The new collection comes in a wide range of colors and patterns. There’s a style here for every guy, whether you like your briefs in neutral shades or want to rock something a little more daring.
OK, so maybe our big challenge for Hammer wasn’t so challenging after all. But that’s because he was kitted out with performance underwear ready for whatever adventures come your way. Wherever you’re going, these Ted Baker boxers will keep you cool, comfortable, and looking good. No question about that.
Ted Baker London is world-renowned for its stylish and sophisticated menswear, womenswear, accessories, and everything in between.

Hugo Boss has collaborated with Konstantin Grcic, one of Germany’s most influential industrial designers, on a limited capsule collection for fall 2019.
Grcic’s award-winning work in seating and lighting is featured in the permanent collections of the world’s leading museums, including MoMA in New York and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris; in 2010, he was named designer of the year at Design Miami. Over his almost three-decades-long career, Grcic is perhaps best known for his focus on utility and simplicity — high fashion seems rather a long way from his usual remit.
But not at all, Grcic told WWD as he showed off his Boss capsule collection in his airy Berlin studio, a converted factory floor with large windows and long white desks. “Beauty has a function, too,” he explained. “And if things are only practical, and not appealing, then you have a very different relationship to those objects.
“I don’t want to stretch the metaphor too far but chairs come close to something that we almost wear,” he added. Grcic’s chairs have won design prizes and several feature in museum collections. “So it’s not a completely strange world to me.”
This isn’t his first tie-up with a fashion brand either: In the
Lauren Chan, a former plus-size model with Ford Models and a fashion features editor at Glamour, is making the leap into fashion design. She will launch an online plus-size collection called Henning on Sept. 3 on the brand’s web site, henningNYC.com.
Chan has worked on the business for over a year, having started her research in spring 2018. She did the designing herself and conducted focus groups in the beginning to see what people would like to buy.
For the fall launch, she is offering 10 styles in sizes 12 to 24. Fabrics come from the U.S., and everything is made in New York.
“It’s all very men’s wear inspired, which is a personal preference of mine,” said Chan, who herself is now a size 14, having been up to a size 20 in her life. While she has no formal design training, Chan designed the line for Glamour x Lane Bryant and did 10 collections. “That was my first foray into product,” she said.
The Canadian-born Chan was signed to Ford Models’ plus-size division right after she graduated from college. She also did freelance writing and several years later, landed at Glamour. She spent three years there as fashion features editor, and left
Target is giving shoppers a peek at its upcoming 20th anniversary collection.
The retailer sent shoppers into a frenzy when it announced it was tapping into its archives and reproducing over 300 items from its past designer collaborations, many of which sold out immediately upon release. Now, the brand has revealed all the styles for the upcoming collection.
On Thursday, Target posted the campaign for the collection on its Instagram account, which shows the designers themselves posing alongside models dressed in their designs.

A post shared by Target (@target) on Aug 15, 2019 at 6:14am PDT
The look book revisits Target’s fashion designer collections over the last 20 years, including its first collaboration in 1999 with Michael Graves — a homeware collection — and its latest collaboration in 2018 with British lifestyle brand Hunter.
The upcoming anniversary collection — which hits stores on Sept. 14 and is available for pre-order on Sept. 3 — includes other collaborations with designers like Zac Posen, Anna Sui, Missoni, Phillip Lim, Rodarte, Jason Wu and Lilly Pulitzer,
Just as every bride has a story — or more likely 100 stories — designer Karen Walker wants to be part of that narrative with a new bridal collection.
The Auckland, New Zealand-based designer has created an assortment of wedding-day styles, after years of customers requesting bridal dresses or outfits. Until now, the timing never felt right, Walker said. But that did not deter many from buying various Karen Walker designs to wear for their big day. “But they had never been designed specifically for that intent,” she explained.
Now there are 12 bespoke dresses, four bespoke suits and two off-the-rack dresses “for those wanting to elope,” Walker said. Retail prices range from $ 950 to $ 3,500 and are sold through the new bridal shop in her Auckland boutique and online store. Bespoke shoppers can work directly with her team that includes patternmakers, tailors and other specialists in her atelier or via e-mail, FaceTime or other means. Fittings and creating toiles are all part of the package. Such procedures have been put to use for six international high-profile clients over the past 12 months. That roster included former First Lady Michelle Obama, who needed a suit for her “Becoming” book tour. Walker said,
The NFL will be celebrating its 100th anniversary this season and DKNY is doing its part to help the league celebrate.
The brand is creating an exclusive DKNY Sport collection for women that will be co-branded with the logos of all 31 teams. The line offers street-style-worthy, feminine looks that were created as an alternative to the loose-fitting jerseys that have become de rigeur among fans.
This collection will offer puffer coats, sneaker dresses, classic leggings and cropped hoodies, all co-branded with the logos of the team.
Beginning in October, the line will be expanded to include sweatshirts, jackets and vests.
Prices range from $ 40 for T-shirts to $ 150 for outerwear.
The DKNY x NFL collection will be available beginning this month at Macy’s, select stadiums and on the DKNY, NFL and Fanatics web sites.
Earlier this year, DKNY offered a similar sports-inspired collection for Major League Baseball. That was part of a push by Fanatics, the largest global retailer of licensed sports merchandise, to focus on more-upscale brands.
The collection comes as a result of a licensing deal between DKNY and the NFL.
It was an Eighties-themed night seemingly off the set of “Stranger Things” inside Milk Studios on Thursday in Los Angeles, where Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy showcased a limited-edition capsule collection.
“We wanted something that spoke to nostalgia a little bit, but also felt of-the-moment,” shared Laura of the event, a collaboration with IMG’s Made and Mastercard.
Neon lights filled the room, which featured a see-now-buy-now Fred Segal Sunset pop-up in the style of a romanticized teenage bedroom. The line of T-shirts, selling for $ 150 each, and sweatshirts for $ 280 — with “Radarte” written across the front — is a collaboration with artist Mari Eastman and sold exclusively at the retail store starting today until Aug. 14.
“Made approached us and said that they were going to do a series of projects where they want you to unite with an artist,” said Laura prior to the presentation, which had models strutting around a makeshift roller-skating rink. “We immediately thought, ‘Oh, this is an amazing opportunity to work with an artist that we admire,’ and we’ve known Mari for years. She’s an amazing painter and professor. Everything was very organic, and it was just a step-by-step process of doing something that was heartfelt
“Our favorite look is not here because it’s with Cate Blanchett,” says Brian Wolk during a walk-through of his new Wolk Morais collection designed with Claude Morais, at the duo’s Hollywood bungalow home-studio.
The designers’ love affair with Los Angeles continues with their eighth collection — spring 2020 — debuting in a short film format, and inspired by a mood board full of old Hollywood screen and wardrobe test images starring Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Sharon Tate, Marlon Brando and more.
“We’ve been using Los Angeles as our muse, backdrop and scenic inspiration and we felt it was time to speak the language of the city,” says Wolk, referencing previous collections, one shown at Hollywood’s historic Yamashiro Japanese restaurant, another inspired by California’s mid-century “California Cool” art movement, another by its private school-going “teenage bourgeoisie.” “Also, it was really fun to cast…we got to call all of our crazy eccentric friends and get them to participate,” he said of the short film’s lineup of Lydia Hearst, Moon Unit Zappa, Aimee Garcia, Rebecca Walker, Monica Abanonu and more.
While many may associate Los Angeles fashion with streetwear or rock ‘n’ roll, the Wolk Morais designers have been zeroing in on tailoring as a specialty,
Rodarte is throwing a summer party with the Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs on Aug. 1 in Los Angeles.
The Eighties-themed concert bash is being held in collaboration with Made and Mastercard to celebrate a new capsule collection of “Radarte” pieces incorporating artwork by Los Angeles-based painter Mari Eastman, which will be sold at L.A.’s Fred Segal beginning Aug. 2. The event is expected to draw 300 guests, including friends of Kate and Laura Mulleavy, models, celebrities and fashion notables from the Endeavor agency roster. (The designers are represented by the talent agency, which also owns Made.)
“We are so excited to make these T-shirts and sweatshirts featuring artwork by artist Mari Eastman. We are such fans of her body of work,” the Mulleavys said in a statement of the capsule, which will also incorporate blockchain technology developed by Mastercard.
“Mastercard is happy to be a part of this collaboration. We will address the 94 percent of supply chain leaders who think digital transformation will fundamentally change supply chains for the better with the unveiling of a technology that will help consumers explore the journey of the product and shop with confidence,” said a company statement from Mastercard.

Iconic tennis brand Prince has teamed up with Miami-based hospitality powerhouse David Grutman for a new lifestyle collection that’s just right for summer. Combining responsive performance athleisure wear with stylish Art Deco-inspired colors that pop, it’s available now at Prince.
The Prince x David Grutman Collection nods to both the culture of tennis and the fun-loving, active lifestyle that has made Miami one of the hottest fashion destinations of the last few years. Grutman, founder of famous Miami hotspots such as LIV at the Fontainebleu Miami Beach, Story, and Bar Bevy], is the new Creative Director of the renowned tennis company.
Grutman has been called one of “The 50 Most Influential People in EDM” by Rolling Stone. This new collection showcases the electrifying South Beach spirit of the nightlife impresario. The collection blends classic athleisure silhouettes with the vibrant color palette of Miami—a vintage look that never goes out of style.
But don’t let the stylish flair detract you from the fact that this is serious performance apparel. It moves with you, works hard when you do, and to take your game to the next hot level.
The 20-piece lifestyle capsule consists of polo shirts, crewneck sweatshirts, shorts, and tees as well as accessories like caps and sweatbands. Also available as part of the collection is the famed nylon tracksuit – a tennis sideline staple. Delivering two styles, an all-black track suit featuring art deco inspired line embellishments, and a color-popped version with the classic Miami hues of aqua and fuchsia. Grutman’s EDM influence is apparent throughout the collection, which currently features both unisex and women’s-specific styles.
We expect to see this collection everywhere this summer. The new Prince x David Grutman Collection is available now at princeoffcourt.com.
Allbirds already makes what most consider to be the world’s most comfortable shoes. Where does the trailblazing brand go from here? Today, Allbirds breaks the mold again by releasing its first-ever patterned shoes. This limited edition collection of Houndstooth, ZigZag, and Polkadot Tree Toppers won’t be in stores until July 16, but we scored an exclusive early link, so you can get yours right now by clicking here.
These. Are. Awesome.
If you’re thinking these high tops won’t be wearable until fall, think again. Allbirds Pattern Collection Tree Toppers are made using a proprietary mesh knit textile from sustainably harvested eucalyptus tree pulp. So they’re breathable and silky-smooth, even in the summer heat. Naturally-derived and renewable, it’s much friendlier to the environment than traditional shoe material.
Even the laces are environmentally sound. They’re made of 100 percent post-consumer recycled polyester; basically, one old plastic bottle becomes one pair of durable, sleek shoelaces. The design weave takes its cue from nautical rope, and the bio-based material that forms the eyelets is tougher and more resilient than plastic.
Wanna go sockless? No problem. The plush insoles are lined with merino wool fabric for natural softness. And wool has legendary moisture-wicking and odor reduction. The cushioned footbed is derived from castor bean oil, which also cuts carbon output when compared to petroleum-based foam.
Born from Brazilian sugarcane, SweetFoam is the world’s first carbon negative green EVA. The outsole’s contours provide bouncy comfort that’s light on your feet as well as the planet.
Best of all, Allbirds shoes are completely machine washable—and the price point on these is no higher than the rest of the Tree Topper line ($ 115).
Where Can You Get Them?
The shoes are currently available via Instagram, and you can head there to learn more. For now, the three limited-edition Allbirds Patterned Collection is available only in the high-top Tree Topper style, and just in a black/grey colorway. But if they’re a hit, who knows what the future holds? Take a look at each of the three Patterned Tree Toppers below, and pick yours up today before they’re all gone.

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

Remember when you had to be ready to knuckle up at a sneaker camp out in the United States? Well China is bringing those feels back in 2019.
As spotted on High Snobietythe recent launch of the highly anticipated KAWS x Uniqlo drop caused a real scene at a Chinese retail location. So much so that consumers sprinted into the mall location. Even before the gate was lifted fans crawled in to get first dibs. The frenzy was so lit that they eventually started ripping the wears right off the mannequins.
While this is nothing we haven’t seen at a Black Friday sale things went left rather quickly when some shifty shoppers couldn’t cop their wish list. Footage shows one individual tussling with another male in an effort to rip the t-shirt right off him.
The KAWS x Uniqlo collection sold out immediately online when it was originally released on Monday evening, China time. Thankfully there is more to go around as it is also hitting Europe on June 6. More clips from the madness below.

The thing about Todd Snyder clothing is not only does it look great, it’s also extremely well-crafted. Much of it’s made from fantastic materials and clever patterns you just don’t see anywhere else. From supple chinos to killer blazers to Todd’s legendary collaborations, this is couture that’s not just stylish, but made for everyday. It’s affordable, too. And you wouldn’t have to look hard to find gear that’s far more costly and not nearly as high quality. It’s quality fashion made for the modern guy.
There’s even an entire section of the site dedicated to brands, where you’ll discover great curated collections from legendary fashion names such as Blundstone, Filson, and Red Wing to respected newcomers such as Mack Weldon and Scosha.
