Hollywood Stylist Anita Patrickson’s Amanu Sandal Brand Sets Hotel Partnership

Hollywood stylist Anita Patrickson has aligned with Singita luxury lodges to bring her made-to-order Amanu sandals to resorts in South Africa. It’s the first move into the hospitality sector for the brand, and a full circle moment for Patrickson, who originally hails from Capetown.
She parlayed her work as a fashion stylist for Julianne Hough, Portia de Rossi and others into a custom shoe business that launched last year in L.A., inspired both by traditional sandals made using tire rubber in Africa, and the tradition of resort sandal making on the island of Capri.
Now she’s bringing the eco-conscious, high-touch experience  customers get in her West Hollywood flagship to guests at Singita. In June, Patrickson traveled to South Africa with one of the U.S. makers to train the staff at Singita Ebony Lodge and Lemombo Lodge to cobble the shoes, priced $ 160 to $ 275, from an array of leathers, with pony hair and feather trim, in under an hour.

“My parents were both born in Kenya, and I thought this was a cool way to be able to take this craft back and teach somebody a skillset—and a way to be able to go home more,” Patrickson laughed, adding of her brand

Lane Crawford Signs Strategic Partnership With Labelhood

LONDON — Labelhood, a Shanghai-based emerging designer support platform, community and fashion retailer, has entered into a strategic partnership deal with Lane Crawford for the Greater China region.
Labelhood will open pop-up corners in Lane Crawford’s stores in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai and Chengdu, with the focus on Chinese emerging talents from the fall 2019 season.
The partnership also includes a three-season scholarship supporting the most promising Chinese designers. The retailer will support the winner’s showcase in Labelhood during Shanghai Fashion Week with a cash prize of 100,000 renminbi, or $ 14,867 each season.
The first recipient of the inaugural scholarship is the New York-based Chinese designer Caroline Hu. Educated at Central Saint Martins and Parsons School of Design, Hu was nominated as a finalist in the 2019 edition on LVMH Prize last month.
“I am truly grateful for the support from Labelhood and Lane Crawford,” said Hu. “The scholarship is a very big encouragement for independent designers like me, and it will play a positive role in promoting the growth of independent designers in China.”
Tasha Liu, founder of Labelhood, said “The upcoming collaboration with Lane Crawford reaffirms our positioning on continuous Chinese designer incubation. I believe the partnership will amplify the message.”

AllSaints Unveils Fragrance Line in Partnership With Revlon

LONDON — You can buy a leather jacket, and now you can smell like one, too.
British retail brand AllSaints is diving nose first into perfumery. The contemporary label, known for its leather biker jackets, is padding its portfolio with three debut fragrances, in partnership with Revlon.
Sunset Riot, Metal Wave and Incense City are unisex scents, and according to the brand, pay tribute to the “diversity of AllSaints.” Creative director of AllSaints Wil Beedle said the fragrances have been created with unexpected combinations, such as floral notes mixed with leather and metal ones.
“We are extending our activity beyond ready-to-wear and it made sense for us to explore the fragrance world,” Beedle said. Earlier this year, AllSaints inked a licensing agreement with Global Brands Group to expand its accessories range to include footwear, socks, costume jewelry and cold weather accessories.
By partnering with Revlon, AllSaints is hoping to strengthen its position as a global retailer. “It was immediately clear that not only does Revlon have an impeccable expertise, it also has an intuitive understanding of our brand. The Revlon team were hugely supportive and allowed us to achieve what we wanted without compromising our vision,” said Beedle.
Both companies view the partnership as a way to reach

Net-a-porter, Mr Porter Extend Cartier Partnership

LONDON — Yoox Net-a-porter is continuing to invest in the growth of its fine jewelry and watch business.
The latest move is the launch of a permanent offering of Cartier watches on both Net-a-porter and Mr Porter, building on the success of the jeweler’s pop-ups on both sites.
Cartier made its online debut in May last year, with an exclusive pop-up on Net, to launch the latest iteration of its famous Panthère watch. The brand quickly resonated with the retailer’s audience: The first watch was said to have been sold out within two minutes of the launch via WhatsApp.
The Panthère will now return for the launch of the permanent collection on Wednesday, alongside other signature styles by the jeweler including Tank, Ballon Bleu and Baignoire.

The new Cartier Panthère watch. 

Prices will range from 4,000 pounds to 85,000 pounds.
Elizabeth von der Goltz, Net’s global buying director, said that the aim was to offer a variety of both styles and price points. “There is a mix of steel and gold styles as well as precious pieces, so there really is something for everyone,” she said.
She added that while the majority of the sales are generated by the site’s high-spending roster of clients, dubbed EIPs or extremely important
