This is America? Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino is getting sued by his own record label over streaming royalties.

Reports TMZ:

Glassnote Entertainment Group has filed a lawsuit against Childish Gambino claiming he’s aced them out of the loot he’s collected for streaming royalties.

As for those royalties … they’re a lot. The suit claims Donald has raked in more than $ 700k in streaming money and hasn’t anted up a cent to Glassnote.

What really galls Glassnote is its claim that it has paid Donald nearly $ 8 MILLION and expects to pay him another $ 2 mil in royalties in the next 3 months. The label also claims Donald made a $ 1.5 million demand from them to resolve streaming royalty disputes.

Worth noting, Glover’s latest hit, “This Is America,” is not on Glassnote.

Everywhere, artists who get jerked by their own record labels are laughing their ass off.

British Label Aries Embraces Men With New Unisex Range for Mr Porter

ONE FOR THE BOYS: The British contemporary women’s wear label Aries has added a men’s wear component and will launch a unisex collection with Mr Porter on Jan. 18. The label, which launched in 2012 and is based in east London, delved into men’s wear after seeing a demand from its customers.
“Many of my male friends already wear Aries, and I think that the community has demanded more,” said creative director Sofia Prantera. “At the beginning, Aries was created as a unisex concept; however, it was hard to commercialize. My background is in designing men’s wear and my women’s wear has derived from that. With Aries the cuts are the same — it always fit men, we just didn’t advertise it.”
The men’s pieces take their cue from the label’s Nineties streetwear aesthetic: The 20-piece collection includes jackets, denim, logo T-shirts and shorts with a deconstructed Nineties vibe. There are also T-shirts that were taken apart then put back together.
Prantera also used classical and historical symbols and blended those designs with pop styles on shirts. The price range is 69 pounds for a T-shirt to 1,412 pounds for a sheepskin jacket. The collection will be available for purchase on the brand’s

EXCLUSIVE: French Label Koché to Stage Pre-Fall Show in New York

PARIS – After Paris and Tokyo, Christelle Kocher is ready to bring her rule-breaking approach to catwalk shows to New York.
The French designer will hit the Big Apple on Dec. 12 to showcase her pre-fall collection for her ready-to-wear brand Koché, alongside a capsule men’s wear collection marking the start of a new two-season partnership with The Woolmark Co.
The display, to be held at the Strand Bookstore on Broadway, will also feature the next chapter in her ongoing collaboration with Paris soccer club Paris Saint-Germain — with perhaps a celebrity footballer or two in attendance, league schedules permitting.
Known for blending streetwear influences with the kind of upscale techniques usually reserved for couture, Kocher has staged guerrilla-style shows in locations including a crowded underground station and a historic covered shopping arcade in Paris, as part of her ethos of sharing fashion with the masses.
With its slogan “18 Miles Of Books,” the Strand is one of New York’s oldest and largest independent bookstores, featured in movies including “Six Degrees of Separation,” “Julie & Julia” and “Remember Me.”
“This is the first time we are doing a show for a pre-collection,” said Kocher, adding that she has a “special relationship” with New York, where

Gwyneth Paltrow Presents Newest Crop of ‘Trend-Proof’ Goop Label Pieces in NYC

While Gwyneth Paltrow is a year into designing clothes for her brand, Goop Label, she maintains that the mix of chunky cashmere sweaters, pique blouses and tweed shift dresses isn’t at all fashion.
“It’s really the opposite of fashion,” said Paltrow at her first preview of the line in New York on Thursday. “We’re not trying to move the needle.”
Wearing a navy velvet pantsuit of her own design and white sneakers, Paltrow walked WWD through the newest pieces, which start at $ 195 and go up to $ 1,395. New looks include dark-rinse wide-leg jeans, a cargo parka with a fake fur hood and a camel coat made from Loro Piana cashmere.
“Everything we make at Goop comes out of a white space; it’s like that with our skin care,” said Paltrow. “I love designer fashion, I’m a fan, but it’s so incredibly expensive. My point was, is there an under $ 600 version of that blazer that’s made in the same factory in Italy? It turns out, yeah. The idea of it is, how do you respect the modern woman and make beautiful designer clothing that’s trend-proof?”
From Paltrow’s “white space” came a black silk mock turtleneck jumpsuit that would be a no-brainer for an office holiday party,

Clandestine Becomes First Cuban Sportswear Label to Sell E-commerce

While political relations between the U.S. and Cuba might be chilly, the Havana-based Clandestina drove into the U.S. market by launching e-commerce.
Despite the barely month-old travel warning for American citizens and allegations of sonic attacks on staffers at the U.S. Embassy in Havana, Clandestina founder Idania del Río is trying to cozy up to the American market. Started in 2015 with Leire Fernández, the company is now the first Cuban fashion brand to sell online. While importing goods from Cuba remains challenging and costly due to U.S. legislation, independent designers in Cuba can provide their design services to American customers. Del Río and her team design all of the six styles that are offered online in the company’s studio. They are then digitally uploaded to American manufacturers that print, produce and ship the finished product to consumers in the U.S. and abroad.
Unreliable Internet and phone service, limited resources and distance from global markets are some of the factors that have deterred Cuba-based entrepreneurs from going global. To that point, a phone interview with Del Rio required numerous attempts due to the spotty phone connection “Sometimes it’s better, sometimes it’s worse. In the rain, it’s even more terrible,” she said.

Marimekko Makes Moves in Paris: A New Direction for Jackie O’s Favorite Everyday Label


In 1960, as her husband was campaigning for election as POTUS, Jacqueline Kennedy bought seven dresses from the Finnish print company Marimekko. Ka-pow! In a very early version of totally authentic and unmediated-by-agent product placement, this company won itself a little niche in American fashion folklore. But there is much more to Marimekko than Jackie O’s patronage—much more even than Maija Isola’s gorgeous 1964 Unikko floral print. In 2015, this is a significant international business, with 50 percent of its income generated by apparel sales.

That was the stat delivered by Anna Teurnell, Marimekko’s creative director of one year, as she showcased her contribution. “And 91 percent of our employees are women!” chimed in Tiina Alahuhta-Kasko, the company’s president. Teurnell launched & Other Stories, the highly successful, higher-priced diffusion brand of H&M, before landing at Marimekko, and you could see the building blocks of a diversification strategy in the mac, the parka, and the poppy-pink cargo pants in her lineup. The soul of Marimekko, though, is print, and here it was at the fore in a series of perfectly lovable pieces in a mixture of cotton and crepe. That orange dress was a particular stunner. “We want to bring color into ordinary life,” said Teurnell—or, in Jackie O’s case, an extraordinary life. Marimekko showed it is still doing today what it was doing then: delivering unpretentious pop and pattern.

London Knit Label Loma Previews Spring Collection

LOMA’S KNITS BRANCH OUT: London knitwear label Loma, which is showing its spring 2016 collection at Coterie this weekend, already counts Nordstrom, Ron Herman and Neiman Marcus among its U.S. stockists, and will launch in Saks Fifth Avenue in October.
Now founder Lorna Masters, who started the label in 2012, plans to expand closer to her home turf. “When I started the range I was living in Australia and that’s why it resonated so well, especially in California, because the lifestyles are very similar,” said Masters, a Royal College of Art graduate who designed for Nicole Farhi and French Connection before starting her own label. “California is a great market for knitwear because they don’t wear coats.”
The label has recently launched at The Shop at Bluebird and Harvey Nichols in London, and Masters said that now the label plans to expand into the U.K. and Europe, having recently appointed a German sales agent, U. Schramm-Badenhop. She will also present the collection during Tranoi in Paris in October, and is considering a presentation in London.
The label is focused on fine cashmere knits, in what Masters called “architectural” shapes. “I’ve always liked the idea of a bohemian look but done in a very

This Fashion Label Is Making It Easier Than Ever to Tap Into French-Girl Cool

atlantique ascoli

Brooches, stoles . . . estate-sale chic is going strong. And even for those who aren’t quite ready to embrace an eclectic vision à la Alessandro Michele, a little bit of ladylike appeal goes a long way. Enter Atlantique Ascoli, the eponymous brainchild of a Parisian musician, whose cult-y range of polished blouses has won her an array of well-heeled fans since launching in 2013.

A labor of love if ever there was one, like many before her, for Ascoli it wasn’t a gap in the industry she was combating so much as it was a gap in her wardrobe. “I didn’t think in terms of market,” she says, “as I didn’t know anything about it. I started the line organically because I had in mind particular shapes, textures, volumes, and how clothes hang on the body that I couldn’t find elsewhere and that I wanted to wear myself.” The result is a range of tops, whipped up in crisp al prato cotton, that plays with sculptural, Victorian ruffles and quietly eccentric levels of volume. New to the lineup are her skirts and dresses, equally easy and soigné. There’s an ineffable quality to Ascoli’s designs—girlish in places but all woman; her impeccable, high-necked blouses are clearly the clothes of she who has her life in order. The dichotomy between frilly and purely feminine stems from Ascoli’s hometown style. As she tells it, “I think the Parisian cares and is conscious about her allure, but when she gets going, she lets go and forgets about it.” Perhaps that accounts for the wide-ranging appeal of her considered pieces, a blank slate for women of all ages looking to add a touch more polish to their day-to-day. Case in point: Atlantique Ascoli has proved just as logical a buy for stockists like Dover Street Market as it is for ladies who lunch snapping them up at Barneys. You’ll find Ascoli’s latest offering at both, as well as Colette, The Webster Miami, and Net-a-Porter.

London Label Me+Em Raises Investment

LONDON — Me+Em, a London-based contemporary label that’s a favorite of the Duchess of Cambridge, has received funding from a consortium of investors to fuel its expansion.
Pembroke Venture Capital Trust said Thursday said that together with Venrex Fund, Sir Charles Dunstone and a number of other private investors, it has taken a “co-investment” in Me+Em. Pemroke didn’t disclose the size of the investment the group have made in the label.
Pembroke said the funding would allow Me+Em to acquire new customers, broaden its product offering, introduce wholesale and increase customer engagement with the brand, through investing in digital, social and public relations activity.
Andrew Wolfson, chief executive officer of Pembroke Venture Capital Trust commented: “We were impressed by the way the [Me+Em] product resonates with their target demographic and the team’s intelligent approach to marketing and data management,” he said.
Clare Hornby, founder and creative director of Me+Em added: “Me+Em has doubled in size over the last 18 months. I am excited about the future and working with Venrex and Pembroke, who both provide the expertise and financial support to take the brand to the next level.”

This New Korean Label Is a Gold Mine for Denimheads

korean denim label

Last winter, a fifties-style coed collection, inspired by Nicholas Ray’s Rebel Without a Cause, came down the runway at Seoul Fashion Week, brightening the stark white halls of Dongdaemun Design Plaza with red satin bombers, swingy silk culottes handmade in the city—and some of the season’s best denim.

That’s right, denim: The indigo twill that made its way from France to California to Japan is now having its moment in Seoul, from distressed peplums at Steve J & Yoni P’s diffusion line SJYP to the opening of Joe’s Garage, a dedicated denim store in Mapo-gu. But the fabric’s turn on the runway that day was something special: Think a pale pink buttoned mini with matching jean jacket, whose cuffs turn up to reveal the words “More Love” embroidered with emerald thread.

Denimheads, meet R.Shemiste which, by the way, takes its name from the Korean pronunciation of the word alchemist. Launched in January 2013 by Seoul-based design duo Jiyeun Won, 24, and Jooho Lee, 22, the label debuted its first collection at Tokyo Fashion Week, followed by a capsule-collection show at New York Fashion Week just one year later. Since then, R.Shemiste has developed a cult following among the denim-obsessed, from K-pop star Chanmi of AOA to Aussie stylist Margaret Zhang, who recently wore one of the brand’s distressed jean jackets in sunny New South Wales.

“Denim is so useful and utilitarian,” Won says. “Of all the fabrics, denim has the most possibilities—it’s the most changeable, and by dyeing or bleaching it, we can transform it to fit whatever we want to express, which is why it’s our favorite.” In particular, they love to work with high-quality Japanese selvedge denim, taking scraps from the loom and transforming them into a dark-wash jacket with zigzag stitching or low-slung boyfriend jeans worn with a cropped daisy tee.

And lately R.Shemiste has tapped into fashion’s androgynous mood, too, marrying feminine pieces (a prim chambray pleated dress) with a tougher, mannish look (pool slides and tube socks). The two are currently hard at work on their fall 2015 collection, with dyed denim wrap skirts and high-rise jeans undoubtedly on the docket.

“We want to find accidental beauty—to mix and match fabrics and work from scratch, until we create something unexpected, but lovely,” Lee says. Personally, we can’t wait to see what fashionable alchemy the two will perform this fall.

Rich Homie Quan Sues Label For Over $2 Million

Rich Homie Quan is set to go to war with his label and the founder, Girvan Henry and Think It’s A Game Entertainment, LLC.

The rapper, whose real name is Dequantes Lamar, seems more than $ 2 million in unpaid eargings from Henry and TIG. He has also severed ties with them as well.

According to court documents filed today with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division, Quan alleged he TIG Entertainment violated a partnership agreement that would sell his music. A press release future details his grievances.

Court documents outline 12-counts that claim Henry has not accounted for, nor paid monies earned by Quan, including royalties, for at least four albums, which featured songs including “Flex” and RIAA Gold Certified, international hit “Type of Way.” The suit names Def Jam Recordings via a partnership with Henry, and Trinidad James’ record label, Gold Gang Music Group, LLC, by which Def Jam paid Henry and Gold Gang $ 550,000 and distributed “Type of Way.” Quan says Henry and Gold Gang had no rights to the song’s masters and he never signed a record deal with Def Jam or Gold Gang.

Rich Homie Quan also charges that Henry misappropriated funds derived Def Jam for “Type of Way” and bought a home in Atlanta. The suit also claims that Henry used Fly Merchandise to sell and profit from merchandise with Quan’s logo on it.

In addition, Quan claims that Henry, through Fly Merchandise Enterprises, LLC fraudulently claimed ownership of a logo that included Quan’s name and Henry profited from the use of that logo.
Henry misrepresented ownership of Rich Homie Quan’s name, likeness and logo marks by filing two trademark applications with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (U.S. Reg. Nos. 4,483,756 and 4,746,133).

Quan’s litigation attorney, Leron Rogers said: “Unfortunately this is a classic case of a music artist being ripped off by those claiming to have his best interest in mind. Quan has more than delivered on his part of the partnership, delivering hit songs that have sold hundreds of thousands of copies. Mr. Henry has taken advantage of Quan, and now it’s time for him to receive his just due.”

“Quan has worked really hard to achieve his vision of becoming a successful artist. He deserves to be compensated in a fair and just manner. While it is unfortunate that he has had to seek resolution of this issue through the legal system, we fully expect that justice will prevail,” co-counsel, Brianna Williams of Mélange, a Williams Firm.

The End of a Label Whore

Last night my wife and I went on an outing into the city. Prepared with $ 220 in spending money, I was out to find something new, something I just needed (though I couldn’t quite name what that was), something to make me feel good. As I walked around the store with its overcrowded aisles, clothes strewn about on plastic hangers and fluorescent lights, something felt so wrong in my core. I didn’t know what it was, but it felt as though I was violating myself.

Let me back up for a bit, 5 years ago I decided I would not shop at Walmart ever again. I had learned about the employee treatment, their poor wages and the poor quality of the items all made in China. Next came Target as well as most other huge big box stores. But, I never faltered on the desire I had to purchase “my brands” Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Coach, pretty much any high end brand with a label I attached personal feelings to and made it my own. I decided it was the quality of the store, not the actual products that gave me uncomfortable feelings.

So, last night, I decided that TJ Maxx no longer met my standards, but still had that “need” to shop. What’s a girl to do? Go to Macy’s of course. Yes, Macy’s was my new minimum standard of store. It was there that I found the bag of my dreams. A Ralph Lauren green tote that would be perfect for work, travel and was beautiful. It was $ 300, so I decided I would come back next month and purchase. “Will you really?” my internal voice asked. Hmmm, would I? Why wouldn’t I? Home I went, empty handed and feeling unsettled. Why didn’t it feel right to shop, yet I had money to burn?

As I sat in my chair to relax for the evening, my voice came back to ask, “How does Ralph Lauren treat the people that make their products? What is their standards on leather? How are they in regards to the environment?” I promptly answered great to all questions of course, it had to be right? So began the night that will change the rest of my life. In my searches I found that Ralph Lauren pays their employees in underdeveloped countries .20-1.20/hour, many times this is less than Walmart.

I began digging deeper and learned that whenever the factories demand more money, Ralph Lauren simply says they will go elsewhere and find a new factory to do it cheaper.

Then I watched the documentary True Cost where they dive deeply into the devastating effects of the fashion industry. The effects are on everyone, as the fashion industry is destroying our Earth at an unbelievable rate and promoting slavery in the farthest corners of the globe, privately of course so that their “consumers” don’t need to see or think about the horrors that are happening.

I am by no means innocent. I have been a label whore my entire life, filling my consumer needs with one “bargain” at a time. At one point I had an entire bedroom filled floor to ceiling with nothing but my clothing. I look around at my home now, a mix of things purchased without question and sustainable ethical goods, and a closet full of labels. Never once had I thought of whose hands made them. If I was buying an item for $ 17 how much were the people who produced it getting paid. A young worker in the documentary only gets to see her child once a month, as she works 16 hour days for $ 10 per week, all in the hopes of her daughter having a better chance at life and not having to work in a textile factory. She says, “We think of those garments as being made with our blood.” Wow! How much blood had my purchases shed? How can I contribute to this?

The fact is I no longer can, nor will I. As I continue down my spiritual journey, I am continuously assessing and reevaluating my beliefs. This begins with animals, my food, the quality of cleaning and laundry products in my home and the healing ingredients I ingest. Why would the clothes I wear or products I purchase be any different? This is not easy. It feels so uncomfortable inside to know what I am saying. No more major brand shopping unless they are made in US or fair trade. Not only looking at clothing, but furniture, linens, purses, luggage, the list goes on and on. I participate in nothing else as the typical American consumer, and I no longer will participate in this. The majority of us float through our day blindly in this country taking for granted all that’s here, demanding lower prices, so we can just buy more and spend more as our countries debt grows. For myself, with $ 28,000 in credit card debt, filling myself with things, always “needing” more. Where does it end? This stops for me now. I will not contribute another cent to “blood trade.” This means every purchase being assessed and researched, this means spending possibly 10x more than I would have a TJ Maxx. This means purchasing a whole lot less but having so much more and stopping to think before I try to fill a void with things again.

I end with these questions, if you are not ok imagining your child being forced to work 14 hour days in a factory of inhumane conditions for pennies a day, are you ok with someone else’s child doing it to make you your next great “deal”? Do you know where your last purchase came from? Do you know how that company takes care of the people who produced it? Do you know how that company takes care of the Earth? Not sure if you care… What if it was you in that factory getting beat for standing up and asking for fair wages? What if it was your field getting flooded with the polluted water that is making half of the town children retarded from the chemicals? Then, do you start to think about your bargains?

Casa Nuestra: Mexican Sister Act Anndra Neen Adds Glassware to Its Jewelry Label

Aandra Neen glassware

Annette Stephens and Phoebe Stephens of Anndra Neen—the jewelry line renowned for its earthily chic and hammered-metal designs—are in homemaking mode: They’ve recently moved into a renovated studio in Mexico City’s Juárez neighborhood (where the company is based—the sisters grew up in the megalopolis), and now, they’re introducing items for la casa, starting with glassware.

“Our father collected Steuben glass,” says Phoebe, before Annette adds: “We wanted something that represented Mexico, but also, our childhood.” They’ve managed both to wonderful effect, forging tumblers, decanters, and ice-buckets carved with symbols of their town and youth; peacocks, which their family kept as pets; quetzals, a regally exotic bird of Mayan lore; and stars, suggesting either Mexico City’s domed nighttime skies or its endless, blinking sprawl below. (And, when you’re ready to pour your first drink, Phoebe recommends a macerated apple and gin with sparkling water, like the cocktail she serves at Melody Nelson—the bar she owns in Distrito Federal—while Annette favors a lemonade with chia seeds.)

Each piece is made entirely by hand by a local craftsman, who works in nearby Xochimilco, an entrancing suburb with floating gardens and misty canals. “Once you mess up, that’s it, you have to restart,” notes Phoebe of the meticulous skill needed to etch the vessels. The use of endemic know-how speaks to the Stephenses’ environmental and social consciousness: Their goods are low-carbon-footprint in build (everything is procured in small-batch production, with minimal waste) and artisanal in practice. “Our staff is immensely proud of what they do,” says Annette. “Now, they ask to see photos of women with the pieces—we send pictures back on WhatsApp!”

Jessa Duggar Reveals She Was One Of Josh’s ‘Victims,’ Defends Against ‘Child Molester’ Label

NEW YORK (AP) — One of reality TV star Josh Duggar’s sisters says in a television interview airing Wednesday that she was a victim of her older brother, who has been accused of sexual misconduct as a teenager.

In a Fox News Channel interview, Jessa Duggar says she wants to defend her brother. She says accusations that he is a child molester or pedophile are “so overboard and a lie.”

The Associated Press generally does not identify victims of sexual mistreatment. But Jessa Duggar is speaking publicly, in an interview that Fox’s Megyn Kelly also conducted with Duggar’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. The Arkansas family is featured in TLC’s series “19 Kids and Counting.”

The Duggar parents said Josh Duggar fondled his sisters when he was a teenager. He apologized for unspecified bad behavior when he resigned last month as a Family Research Council lobbyist.

In another excerpt provided by Fox, Michelle Duggar said there was “so much grief in our hearts” when they heard about the abuse.

“As parents we felt we’re failures, you know?” she said. “Here we tried to raise our kids to, to do what’s right and know what’s right. And yet, one of our children made really bad choices.”

As parents, they were devastated, she said.

Arkansas police last month said they had destroyed a record outlining a nearly decade-old investigation into Josh Duggar. Published reports from news outlets that obtained the report before it was destroyed said Duggar was accused of fondling five girls in 2002 and 2003. No charges were filed. Police began investigating Duggar in 2006 following a tip from a family friend.

“19 Kids and Counting” is one of TLC’s most popular shows, coming off a season of strong ratings after featuring the weddings of Jessa and her sister Jill. TLC immediately pulled reruns of the show off the air when the allegations concerning Josh Duggar surfaced two weeks ago. The network has said no decision has been made about whether the series will continue.

Jim Bob Duggar is a former state representative in Arkansas. Some of the state’s Republicans have expressed support for the family, including GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, whose campaign kickoff was attended by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

5 Reasons That Cool, Under-the-Radar Australian Label Ellery Is Poised for a Major Breakout

Ellery pre-fall 2015

Flamboyant, fluted tailoring clocked up significant street-style mileage during the fall 2015 shows. Remember the bold, seventies-inspired blouse sported by supermodel Abbey Lee in Paris—or the exaggerated flares worn by Natalie Joos in New York City? This distinctive new retro-modern silhouette comes courtesy of designer Kym Ellery, whose eponymous, Sydney-based label is quietly transitioning from under-the-radar treasure to global go-to. Comprised of architectural tailoring and fluid separates, her collections are easy, cool, and unconventionally luxurious. In the midst of Australian Fashion Week, we catch up with the 31-year-old talent and chart the five reasons why you should bookmark the brand now.

1. The Founder
Prior to launching her own line in 2007, Kym Ellery worked on the fashion team at the Aussie fashion magazine Russh. “My background in styling has definitely influenced how I’ve evolved the label,” she says. “From speaking the same language as editors, to knowing that there was a real need for a modern, entry-level label that young women could turn to.” Then there’s Ellery’s own signature style, itself the subject of much adoration, which she describes as, “classic, understated, predominantly androgynous, and almost always monochromatic.”

2. The All-Star Ambassadors
In addition to supermodels and fashion insiders, the brand has amassed a cool following of A-list screen sirens and pop icons such as Rihanna, Solange Knowles, Cate Blanchett, and Elle Fanning. “I feel incredibly lucky, because they are all such strong, beautiful women and they’ve discovered the label organically,” says the designer, adding, “I’d love to see Diane Kruger in one of our dresses, or perhaps Tilda Swinton in a suit. That would be a dream.”

3. The Look
Ellery’s seventies-inspired tailoring strikes a careful balance between restraint and romance. “We’ve become known for reinventing vintage silhouettes, like our classic flared pant which has become a staple,” she says. “I’m an absolute perfectionist about the right cut. Everything is crafted locally here in Sydney so I can keep a close eye on quality. I’m also fastidious about fabrics and work with mills in Switzerland and Italy to develop innovative new textures.”

4. The New Collection
Ellery’s pre-fall line, available at Dover Street Market New York starting next month, pays homage to David Bowie, whom the designer credits as her ultimate muse. “This season, I was especially inspired by his style during the Thin White Duke era—the gray fluted suits—and also the Ziggy Stardust chapter, which is where all the gold brocade comes into play,” she says. Other high notes in the new offerings include a lightweight chrome coat, draped sleeveless paisley top, and slouchy sleeveless waistcoats.

5. The International Takeover
Besides retaining the headline slot at Australia Fashion Week, Ellery will make its official, on-schedule debut in Paris next season. “Showing on the main schedule in Paris has always been my ultimate goal, so we’re all extremely excited about this year and what the future might hold,” she says. We’re certainly staying tuned.

Vanessa Seward Launches Her New Label With a Salute to French Sophistication

Vanessa Seward fall 2015

The Paris shows have been dotted with designer debuts left, right, and center—some ruffling more feathers than others. And framed by the chinoiserie wallpaper of the Mona Bismarck American Center today, the French designer Vanessa Seward paraded the first looks of her eponymous collection—an evolution of a partnership with A.P.C. that, as Vogue announced last September, will roll out worldwide with new stores and a full, ladylike wardrobe.

Back then, Seward was talking about “accessible luxury,” an oxymoronic sort of catchphrase that the designer shed a little light on with today’s straightforward outing—one that channeled her polished, demure aesthetic into a full range, her first since she left Azzaro in 2011. What does that catchphrase translate to? Well, it seems a quiet, flirty sophistication is at play in Seward’s current vision, one in which quality materials meet her learned, feminine design sensibility without falling heavy on the pocket.

It helps, too, that her nostalgic viewpoint falls conveniently on trend, with nods to seventies softness leading her daywear separates with flared shapes in floaty printed crepe. She balanced those with more tailored pieces, like a pencil skirt in smooth claret leather, and the omnipresent raw denim she cut as a vented caban or a trim suit. Her high-waisted jeans (a signature) were tapered to a bell-bottom and came monogrammed with each model’s name, one of several sweet touches like four-leaf-clover crepe and a flash of bronze lamé that lightened up the decidedly fundamental, pragmatic nature of her first offering.

Evening looks touched on that Azzaro glamour: She split a black column up the thigh with a silk bow, and described the white silk blouses under black tailoring as “Parisian gaucho” (a tribute to her Argentinian roots). Seward isn’t trying to change the face of fashion with her nonchalant designs, but neither are the leagues of women who will add her creations to their chic, understated, working wardrobes.

At French Breakout Label Coperni Femme, Minimalism Meets Craftwork, and Comes Full Circle

Photo: Jean-Baptiste Talbourdet

For a young designer working inside today’s saturated, tumultuous fashion world, it pays to be obsessive, it pays to do one thing, and it pays to do that really well. It’s with that sort of honest mindset and pragmatic viewpoint that Coperni Femme duo Arnaud Vaillant and Sebastien Meyer started out in 2013, with their boutique ready-to-wear line that combines fresh minimalism with intensive handwork. They are doing it all under the celestial auspices of Nicolaus Copernicus, the astronomer whose heliocentric philosophies they continue to muse upon in their fourth collection, respecting the symmetrical craft of their earlier efforts while focusing anew on the circular motif.

Meyer is the self-confessed fabric whiz of the pair, who today offered a meticulous explanation of the circular discs that he intricately patchworked together for fall’s hero pieces—down the front of a flared mini, peplum blouse, or belted caban in felt and navy suede, for example. He introduced silvery kangaroo leather into the mix too, a material chosen for its papery quality, which belies an innate sense of texture (in the same way he cut jackets in a rich Italian cloqué reversed to expose its rougher side). Couple those decadent skins with Japanese denim and crisp poplin and the Coperni Femme formula rounds out into a much more pragmatic conceit than you might have imagined—the sleek, straightforward nature of their crisp silhouette functions like a blank canvas for these tricky surface treatments sans problème. Elsewhere the designers reprised their knotted sleeve motif from spring, with slinky extra-long knit sleeves slit down the wrist, or a particularly pretty shirting option with detachable, scalloped cuffs. Never was a ruffle so sharp.
