Pharrell Williams Designs Capsule Collection for Chanel

RHYME AND REASON: Pharrell Williams arrived at Chanel’s first show in Bangkok on Wednesday night wearing a yellow hoodie festooned with sparkly CC and Coco logos — a wink to a new Chanel and Pharrell ready-to-wear and accessories capsule he did for spring 2019.
Chanel said the collection would debut exclusively on March 29, at its new Seoul flagship boutique, followed by select Chanel boutiques around the world from April 4.
Williams has appeared in campaigns for Chanel, composed a song for an original film by Karl Lagerfeld in tandem with its Paris-Salzburg show, and collaborated on Adidas sneakers for a Chanel installation at Colette in Paris last year.
Chanel confirmed the project in a press release, but gave no details about the size of the range or prices. The French house reprised its cruise show in Thailand’s capital with a new decor installed on the banks of the Chao Phraya river.

EXCLUSIVE: Diane von Furstenberg Designs Minnie Mouse’s Wrap Dress for TV Special

Who wouldn’t doubt that Diane von Furstenberg and Minnie Mouse would become fast friends?
For the prime-time ABC special Nov. 4 in celebration of Mickey and Minnie Mouse’s 90th anniversary, von Furstenberg has designed a wrap dress for Minnie Mouse.
“They asked me if I’d like to do a dress for her 90th birthday, and I said ‘OK,’” said von Furstenberg. “Obviously she’s an icon and she had to have a wrap dress. I made a wrap that had lots of different cutouts so we could play with her dots and the colors of the dot and a lot of godets.”
Minnie Mouse’s dress was created by using a 100 percent silk faille fabric in white and black and hand-embroidering sequins to create the mix of polka-dot designs. The dress was sewn by hand in New York, taking 15 people nearly 35 hours to complete.
Long considered a fashion icon, Minnie has been a muse for designers, inspiring new collections and appearing in magazines and runway shows all over the world. Her classic polka-dot ensemble has been continually reimagined by the industry through the decades. Minnie Mouse, who has a reputation for being cute, playful and flirtatious, has often been portrayed as a dancer

Neiman Marcus’ Ken Downing Designs Flashy Interiors for Model Residence at Fifteen Hudson Yards

DOWNING BY THE RIVER: For those who have wondered what it’s like to live like Neiman Marcus fashion director Ken Downing, wait no longer.
Through a Related Cos.-Neiman Marcus effort, Downing has designed and styled the interior of a model residence at Fifteen Hudson Yards. Downing’s 1,464-square-foot model residence has two bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and a price tag of nearly $ 4.3 million. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group, Fifteen Hudson Yards has 285 condos varying in size from one bedroom to four bedrooms.
As a veteran member of the four-fashion-week pack (and the air miles to prove it), Downing gleaned inspiration from the world’s fashion capitals for his at-home curation. His fondness for art collecting was another factor in the final edit. There is also an abundance of color throughout the apartment including pink walls and ceiling, a Venetian-style glass chandelier in purple, a multicolored geometric style rug and a vibrant column painted by Brooklyn artist Nathan Green in the master suite, not to mention the turquoise floor-to-ceiling interior in the condo’s library. Reflective surfaces are meant to bring the West Side view indoors.
Out-of-state residents who have no interest in moving can pick and choose their favorite

Karl Lagerfeld Designs Chanel Costumes for ‘Boléro’ Pas de Deux

COSTUME PARTY: There’s no slowing perennial overachiever Karl Lagerfeld, who has designed two Chanel costumes for the pas de deux of “Bolero,” which will be performed by Diana Vishneva, prima ballerina of the Mariinsky Ballet, and Aurélie Dupont, director of dance at the Paris Opera Ballet, at the latter company’s opening gala at the Palais Garnier on Thursday night.
The performance will be part of a new entry into the repertory of the Paris Opera Ballet: “Decadance” by Ohad Naharin, one of the world’s foremost contemporary choreographers, as a one-shot special appearance.
“Ravel’s ‘Boléro’ has always been one of my most favorite pieces of music in the world,” Lagerfeld said. “It was the first classical record I bought when I was 16 years old.”
Dupont said that after weeks of rehearsing for a show, “where we work on the positions and reflect on the role, putting on the costume allows us to completely metamorphose, to embody a role.”
“The costume is the finishing touch that allows you to become the character,” she added.
Opening with the presentation of the Ballet Corps — a tradition established by Serge Lifar, a friend of Gabrielle Chanel — where the opera dancers will parade to “La Marche des Troyens” by

‘Project Runway All-Star’ Helen Castillo Designs Jumpsuit for Blue Man Group

DOWNTOWN BLUES: For the first time in 27 years, the Blue Man Group is adding a new item to their wardrobe. “Project Runway All-Star” Helen Castillo has created a jumpsuit for the three performance artists and, unlike their stage makeup, the design is not entirely blue.
Raised in New York, the designer attended an arts magnet middle school and subsequently saw her share of traditional Broadway shows. “Kids at school would always boast about their parents or the ‘cool aunt’ taking them to see this show. I grew up knowing it [BMG] as a household name. When I was invited to see a night showing of BMG, I couldn’t believe how close it was to St. Marks Place, where I hung out as a teenager getting my first tattoo and piercings,” she said. “It was refreshing to know there’s still an authentic New York tradition being maintained at Astor Place Theatre.”
Seen by 35 million people worldwide, the show is relatable to Castillo, who likes getting creative, messy and having fun. “Typically, I am inspired by paintings or art movements, so this opportunity was a stroke of fate. Just like visiting The Met to view the costume exhibitions, or photo galleries, the

EXCLUSIVE: Kaia Gerber Designs Capsule Collection With Karl Lagerfeld

PARIS — Move over, Gigi — there’s a new “It” girl in town.
Only three months after her stellar debut catwalk season, Kaia Gerber has inked her first big design collaboration, with Karl Lagerfeld, no less. The 16-year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford has worked on a capsule collection that will hit stores in September, WWD has learned exclusively.
Consisting of ready-to-wear and accessories, including footwear, sunglasses and jewelry, the line is described as blending Lagerfeld’s Parisian chic aesthetic and Gerber’s signature West Coast casual style, which has garnered her 2.7 million followers on Instagram.
The Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia collection will launch globally in Karl Lagerfeld stores, online at Karl.com and with select wholesale partners.
Lagerfeld singled out Gerber as a rising talent months before her breakout season in September, which saw her walk the catwalk for 18 brands, including Calvin Klein, Prada, Saint Laurent and Versace.
She ended it with an honor most seasoned models would die for: Opening the Chanel show for Lagerfeld, who in addition to heading his own label is creative director of Chanel and Italian fur specialist Fendi.
“When Karl first told us his idea to collaborate with Kaia, we were all excited by the incredible potential and power of bringing their

Maria Grazia Chiuri Designs Costumes for Guggenheim Dance Performance

When “Falls the Shadow,” a new dance production commissioned by Works & Process and created by American Ballet Theatre principal Daniil Simkin, debuts in the famous rotunda of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York on Sept. 4, the dancers will be wearing costumes specially designed for the performance by Maria Grazia Chiuri of Dior.
To some extent, the rotunda is where the design process began, nearly a year prior, when Chiuri cochaired the Guggenheim International Gala, hosted by Dior. “Basically, we approached Maria Grazia at the gala,” said Simkin. “Obviously Dior was the primary fashion house we wanted to work with.”
The choreography and staging required special considerations, as “Falls the Shadow” will be performed in the rotunda with the audience standing on the ramps surrounding it for an aerial view. Additionally, the dancers’ movements will be captured in real-time by motion sensors, generating 3-D, mapped projections on the rotunda to connect technology, music, fashion and dance.
Chiuri attended a rehearsal in New York and Simkin and the production team sent her videos of the choreography and 3-D mapping to give her an idea of what the costumes would require. “What’s special about the piece is that it’s going to be

Mint Designs RTW Spring 2016

Gardens are hardly an original source of inspiration, but Nao Yagi and Hokuto Katsui managed to make the concept feel fresh and whimsical for spring. The show opened with a series of casual dresses and separates in a cartoonlike floral pattern. This print was first shown in black and white, and then in a silver version that lent a modern, almost Space Age feel to the clothes.
 
Silhouettes were slightly less flowy and oversize than some of Mint Designs’ previous collections, yet were still easy and unrestrictive. Dresses and skirts featured sheer pleated panels attached at the waist, and asymmetric details became more prominent with movement.
 
But the textiles were what really stood out in this show. A silver checked jacquard with brightly colored, outsize tulips woven into it was particularly eye-catching, whether it was used all over in a modern shift dress or peeking out from between pleats or under half-undone zippers. Another thick jacquard looked soft and wearable in boxy short-sleeve tops, an A-line skirt with diagonal zippers and even a little girl’s coat.

Stella McCartney Unveils Latest Lingerie Designs for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

STELLA’S GOOD CAUSE: Stella McCartney is for a second year launching lingerie designs in support of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month.
The designer has created the Alina Playing range — a balconette bra, a soft-cup bra and a bikini brief, all in the same shade of hot pink. A percentage of the profits from the range — which retails from $ 55 for the briefs through to $ 110 for the bras — will be donated to three breast cancer charities: the Linda McCartney Centre in Liverpool, England, part of the Royal Liverpool University Hospital; the National Breast Cancer Foundation in the U.S., and the National Breast Cancer Foundation in Australia.
McCartney has tapped Cara Delevingne to appear in a campaign shot by Sean Thomas to mark the launch, which pictures Delevingne wearing the set and making a heart shape with her hands at her chest. McCartney said Delevingne “represents a generation of young women that we are really trying to reach,” adding that she hopes the campaign, to launch on McCartney’s Web site and social media channels, will “inspire all generations of women to be aware of breast cancer and be aware that preventing it is the most positive approach.” Last year, Kate Moss

Tracy Feith Designs Warm Wholesale Line for Spring 2016

Tracy Feith and Winnie Beattie go way back. “She was one of my first employees,” said Feith, speaking by phone while driving in Los Angeles. By Beattie’s estimation, she was more like the third person to join Feith’s team over 20 years ago when he was starting his collection for surfy beach babes and she was a kid from Missouri desperate to be in fashion. Now Feith is working for Beattie. She hired him to design the women’s ready-to-wear line she’s launching next week for spring. It’s called Warm, just like the popular New York City store she opened in NoLIta with her husband Rob Magnotta in 2012.
This will come as great news to Feith fans, who’ve been wondering what became of him after he closed his business in 2010 (He was quietly creative directing at Toms Shoes). “I was really starting to feel the itch to get back into design and fashion again,” said Feith. “It was an easy, natural kind of collection for me to take on because it’s quite similar to the TF girl of a few years ago.

Marc Chagall’s Wild Designs for Mozart’s The Magic Flute Are at the Fenimore Art Museum

Mozart's The Magic Flute

In 1967, when a new production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute opened at New York City’s Metropolitan Opera, the steady pulse of the opera world was sent racing. The costumes and sets had been reimagined by Marc Chagall, the then 79-year-old Belorussian artist responsible for painting the ceiling of the Paris Opera House, and for installing two gigantic murals alongside the Met’s grand staircase (the latter became famous again in 2009 when the cash-strapped opera house was forced to put them up as collateral against a loan).

Chagall’s production design, the subject of an exhibition this summer at the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York, created plenty of buzz back then, not all good. “All I had heard around the Metropolitan in the weeks preceding the premiere boded ill for the multi-colored, fanciful, way-out sets and costumes,” wrote Speight Jenkins, Jr. for the Times Herald. “Every bad rumor was wrong. From beginning to end, the welter of color created the non-realistic landscape which is the domain of Zauberflöte.”

But that “welter of color” irked others. Chagall’s efforts, which included the design of 39 stage curtains and 121 costumes and masks, were met with mixed reviews, cranky opera critics haranguing the artist for, essentially, making Mozart all about Chagall.

“Until last night, everybody thought that either Andrew Wyeth at the Whitney Museum or Paul Klee at the Guggenheim had the biggest one-man show in town,” grumbled John Canaday in the New York Times. “But it turns out to be Marc Chagall at the Metropolitan Opera.” He added: “A lot depends on which you want more, Mozart or Chagall. This reporter has a greater weakness for Mozart, which made the evening extremely wearing for him.”

Alan Rich, writing for the World Journal Tribune, described a scene in which art-besotted operagoers burst into “wild applause” with “each new stage picture,” an experience that, no doubt, distracted from the music. “By the end of last evening, many members of the Metropolitan Opera House’s audience were convinced that Marc Chagall had not only designed the new production of The Magic Flute, but had also composed the music, written the libretto, sung the major roles, and conducted,” Rich lamented, then punctuated that flight of hyperbole with one last athletic eye roll: “If you admire Chagall’s art, a trip to the Met’s new Flute is at least as valid as a trip to the Museum of Modern Art. And, furthermore, you can divert your attention from it all (with a little effort, to be sure) and have Mozart’s incredible opera thrown in as a bonus.”

Despite initial backlash, Chagall’s production stayed in rotation until the 1981–82 season. In the decades since, other big-name artists have tried their hand at designing The Magic Flute, notably David Hockney for the Met and Maurice Sendak for the Houston Grand Opera (Sendak, wrote the New York Times Magazine, felt Chagall’s production lacked imagination, and that he had “merely imposed his shtetl symbolism on the opera.”) Since retirement, Chagall’s designs have, for the most part, been filed away in the Met’s dusty basement archives. But this summer, fans whose weakness for Marc rivals or outshines their weakness for Wolfgang, are in luck: The Fenimore Art Museum has unearthed several of the artist’s original costumes, along with masks and other production paraphernalia, and relocated the lot to Cooperstown for display through December.

“Chagall was a big music fan, Mozart in particular,” Chris Rossi, the exhibition’s curator, tells Vogue.com over the phone. “His ideas of perfection were the Bible and The Magic Flute. This must have been pure heaven for him.”



Chagall The Magic Flute

That sense of delight comes across loud and clear: The costumes, divorced from the operatic setting, are beautiful, appearing, as Rich wrote nearly 50 years ago, like “Chagall paintings wrapped around people.” Among those on display are the artist’s feathery take on the bird-catchers, Papagena and Papageno (“in amazingly good shape, considering it’s covered in feathers” notes Rossi); his dusty rose and violet gown for the princess Pamina; a set of sun and star-adorned robes in jewel-tone greens and blues for the fatherly Sarastro; a wildly painted cobalt and aubergine silk chiffon and linen gown for the Queen of the Night (“If I could wear any costume in the exhibit, I would wear this one,” says Rossi); and a gold-lamé jacket-and-pant ensemble for the flute-playing hero Tamino, punctuated by an orange tie-dyed silk sash.

“It looks to me like something that would have been influenced by the Beatles, by India,” Rossi speculates about Tamino’s flair. “It could be me reading into it, but it definitely looks like something of what was happening in the world was sneaking in.” A Chagall homage to the counterculture? “He was really hip,” laughs Rossi. “I’ll just say it. It’s amazing.”

For an even more modern take on Mozart’s 1791 opera, museum visitors can head over to the local Glimmerglass Festival, where a new, completely contemporary production of The Magic Flute, directed by Madeline Sayet, goes up on Friday, and runs through August 23. “We were interested in exploring contemporary people trying to find balance and wholeness in life, finding oneself in nature,” I am told by the production’s costume designer Kaye Voyce, most recently responsible for outfitting Ewan McGregor and Maggie Gyllenhaal in last winter’s Broadway revival of Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing. “Even in their most extreme, the costumes are definitely clothing.”

Voyce plans to see the Chagall show, but has been too slammed to make it yet (“honestly, the legacy and history of this piece is incredibly daunting!” she admits). For her own take, she looked at a range of influences: everything from technical gear to hunter camouflage to traditional Native American garb to neoclassical dresses. Her Queen of the Night will wear a twenties Madeleine Vionnet–inspired beaded gown that “feels like a dress you could wear to a gala.” Pamina wears a sweater skirt from Brooks Brothers Black Fleece. Sarastro has a coat made out of a neoprene fabric that could be mistaken for Alexander Wang. “We tried to figure out what it would look like at some deep secret lab at Apple where everything new is created,” she explains.

But it’s the hunter gatherer Papagena, who visually steals the show, spending two scenes encased in full 3-D camouflage—the type of fake grass and leaf-adorned, Big Foot–resembling getup that you might find skulking next to a rack of shotguns at your local Cabela’s.

“It’s called a Ghillie suit,” Voyce explains excitedly about her own over-the-top moment. “In the opera she’s supposed to appear in disguise. We thought that’s perfect! It kind of makes you look like a monster, but it’s great.”

Utah Valley University Designs ‘Texting Lane’ For Students

While less deadly than texting drivers, texting walkers are now getting their own public intervention. Utah Valley University unveiled a “texting lane” June 7 with the hopes of calling the attention of phone-absorbed students.

As students head to the new Student Life and Wellness Center at the Orem, Utah, institution, they will be diverted into one of three lanes, labeled “walk,” “run” and -– in keeping with the times -– “text.” The lanes themselves make up a track that imitates the athletic facilities within the complex.

The school’s creative director, Matt Bambrough, designed the graphic mostly to draw students’ attention.

“This design was intended to be visual first and functional second,” Bambrough told The Huffington Post. “In our research, the most successful environmental graphics… match that formula.”

“This graphic is obviously more aesthetic than functional,” he said in a press release, adding, “we’ve noticed that most texters aren’t actually following the posted lanes.”

The reality is that texting while walking can have legitimate harmful effects. Each year thousands of pedestrians end up in the emergency room due to walking and texting injuries -– a number that increased fivefold between 2005 and 2010, as cell-phone usage surged. More than half of all cell phone owners have experienced “distracted walking” — bumping into something or someone — according to a recent Pew Study.

Despite the dangers of looking down, Bambrough insists that the lane better serves the purpose of making students look up.

“This was certainly done in a way that was meant to be fun and not to be a directive of the university,” Bambrough explained. “We have 18- to 24-year-olds walking on campus glued to their smartphones, it’s the nature of the world we live in.”

Utah Valley may be a “text lane” pioneer on campus, but the the concept has been appropriated for publicity stunts on sidewalks all over the world, from Belgium to China to Washington, D.C.

Check out photos of the “texting lane” at Utah Valley University:

Adidas Introduces Three LGBT-Friendly Designs On Its Iconic Footwear In Honor Of Pride Month

Sportswear giant Adidas is following in the footsteps of Nike and Levi’s in putting a rainbow-hued twist on some of its most iconic designs in time for LGBT Pride Month.

Three Adidas staples — the Stan Smith, the Adilette Slide and the Superstar — are getting the limited edition makeover as part of the “Pride Pack.” Each of the designs draws inspiration from the LGBT rainbow flag, “a symbol of equality and inclusiveness that signifies the diversity of the LGBT community,” according to press materials.

Vivienne Westwood Designs Cover for ‘Alice in Wonderland’

WESTWOOD’S WONDERLAND: Vivienne Westwood has teamed with Vintage Classics on a special gift edition of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” to mark the tale’s 150th anniversary.
Westwood has created a cover that features her harlequin print and an image of Alice. She has also written the introduction to the book and added several pages about her views on capitalism, the environment, sustainable energy and activism to the new edition.
“Kids! Never become complacent,” Westwood wrote in her introduction. “The world we think we know reflects the way we are conditioned to see it. Maybe it’s not like that at all. Carroll is on your side. Always wonder. ‘Alice in Wonderland’ is timeless, but with my cover and endpapers, by adding the ‘climate map’ and the text, ‘end capitalism,’ I have helped fix it in the present moment.”
Carroll’s classic inspired Westwood’s fall-winter 2012 collection and she considers the tale one of her childhood favorites.
“It’s just such genius!” the designer told WWD during a Mad Hatter’s Tea party at her Conduit Street store in London. “It’s so brilliant. It is really subversive of official opinion and official attitudes to children. Our world is the world we make it.”
Westwood also read excerpts from the story to 20 children from various
