PARIS — Online retailer 24 Sèvres is celebrating this year’s edition of the LVMH Prize for Young Designers by distributing a capsule collection of outfits designed by the eight finalists in June, to be followed by a selection of pieces from the winner’s collection in the fall.

Vogue Italia and Yoox Celebrate Upcycling Capsule

MILAN — For the second edition of The Next Green Talents award, Vogue Italia and Yoox invited seven young designers to create a unique silhouette using the sustainable technique of upcycling.
Guests flocked to the Palazzo Morando on Wednesday night to discover the selection of international designers handpicked by Sara Sozzani Maino, head of Vogue Talents. Each designer unveiled both a limited-edition silhouette, created using items from the Yoox archive and sold on the Yoox web site, and their latest collection, a selection of which will hit the online store in September.
British designer Bethany Williams had just flown in from London, where she received the Queen Elizabeth II award for her “Adelaide House” collection, which she presented during men’s fashion week in London. (The previous recipient of the award is Richard Quinn, who was graced with the presence of the Queen herself on the day of the ceremony.)
Alongside her fall 2019 collection, created in collaboration with a Liverpool-based shelter for women, Williams unveiled an upcycled denim look crafted with old Yoox prototypes. The denim was unstitched to create a completely new silhouette and screen-printed with illustrations by Giorgia Chiarion.

Stylist-turned-designer Mary Alice Haney celebrated her new red-carpet capsule collection with Intermix in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, using her new Brentwood home as party venue and backdrop for shots of plenty of influencers wearing her clothes, Rocky Barnes, Jordana Brewster, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Marlien Rentmeester among them.
“The girl that is at Intermix is a Haney girl. She’s fashion-forward, she wants to party and loves a good party dress,” said the designer, who grew up in Chattanooga, Tenn., and got her start at magazines, then as a Hollywood stylist for A-listers such as Reese Witherspoon, Blake Lively and Sarah Jessica Parker.
“Tonight, we wanted to celebrate the L.A. influencers who are setting the pace for the fashion community,” added Haney, whose sparkling home, designed with Tim Clarke, has its own bar, which was serving up tequila and Champagne cocktails. (“My husband told me not to open the good stuff, but I didn’t pay attention,” joked Haney.)
“It was built in the Eighties and we’ve been renovating it for two years,” she said of the indoor-outdoor space, which has an interior garden, and houses her studio, complete with the Beverly Hills Hotel’s banana-leaf wallpaper.

Giuseppe Zanotti Partners With Rita Ora on an Exclusive Footwear Capsule

LONDON — Giuseppe Zanotti is at it again, with plans to release yet another celebrity collaboration, this time with Rita Ora.
The footwear designer, who has worked in the past with musicians including Jennifer Lopez and Zayn Malik, asked Ora for pictures of her favorite shoes and then let his imagination take flight.
“I love working with artists because they’re very efficient,” he said, adding that Ora loves fashion and he loves music. “In both our lines of profession we need to research everything, everywhere and every day. She’s very multitasking, and I admire that.”
As a result of their close collaboration, Zanotti said he was able to work in the ‘old school’ way,” meaning that he made the initial creations by hand.
“I used to buy shoes at vintage markets, cut them up and Scotch tape parts together. It’s nice after 20 years to go back to the past to work in a very artisanal way. I was painting the shoes and changing lines with scissors,” he added during an interview on the shoot with Ora.
The Giuseppe for Rita Ora collection includes slides, stiletto sandals, pointed-toe mules and knee-high, peep-toe boots with a chunky Cuban Link chain on the heel. The chain is the showpiece of the collection and was

POWER COLLABORATION: Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott are making their debut as fashion designers in collaboration with Dsquared2 founders and creative directors Dean and Dan Caten.
The fashion photographers and the Canadian twin brothers teamed up on a fashion capsule collection, hitting selected stores and the Dsquared2 online shop in February.
As suggested by its name, the Mert and Marcus 1994 x Dsquared2 capsule captures the most iconic spirit of the Nineties, as seen through the filters of the creative crew. Including a range of eye-catching pieces for men and women, the collection is focused on a combination of bold volumes and bright hues and is infused with a hip, underground vibe inspired by the Nineties’ Berlin metropolitan scene where music, art and fashion collided creating a hip, forward-thinking environment.

Faherty is in the giving spirit this holiday season.
The New York-based casualwear brand has created a new women’s collection, the Rainbow capsule, and will donate 10 percent of sales to The Trevor Project, a suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ youth.
The collection, which will be available starting Monday, consists of a sweater poncho for $ 269, a pom beanie for $ 78 and a cotton-acrylic scarf for $ 118.
To promote the initiative, Faherty will team with Brooklyn-based fashion blogger Allison Graham of “She Does Him,” who will produce and share a campaign featuring the Rainbow capsule with more than 27,000 of her followers.

“When we designed the Rainbow Sweater Poncho and matching beanie and scarf for our holiday collection, its bright colors and cozy softness evoked in us the warm and fuzzy feeling of the holidays,” said Faherty president Kerry Faherty. “But we also know the holidays can bring up feelings of sadness and loneliness for many. We reached out to The Trevor Project to set up a partnership and donate a portion of our Rainbow Collection sales to the organization.

The first pop-up made its debut at Isetan in Tokyo last month.
The Dior Men artistic director commissioned artist Kaws to reimagine the Dior logo and iconic bee for a variety of streetwear-inspired products including T-shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, backpacks and accessories from the Dior Oblique line such as sneakers, and denim pieces using the special craft of Japanese Boro. The complex 17th-century embroidery technique punctuates some of the casual denim pieces to give them a “couture” flavor. In addition, Jones reinterpreted the Saddle Bag for men for the first time. Retail prices range from $ 550 to $ 2,350.

JW Anderson Looks to Eighties Gilbert & George for Spring 2019 Capsule

LONDON — Jonathan Anderson is looking to the Eighties works of Gilbert & George, and specifically their early street shots of East End boys, for a men’s and women’s capsule that will launch Dec. 3 at Matchesfashion.com.
JW Anderson x Gilbert & George is part of the designer’s spring/summer 2019 collection and is meant to celebrate the artists, their take on masculinity and British modern life. Anderson has focused on three of his favorite works by the artistic duo: “Guard Plants” (1980), “Dog Boy” (1980) and “Heavy” (1988).
Gilbert & George’s candid shots of “normal” kids on the streets of London’s East End helped to make them famous, and by the end of the decade, works such as Heavy had become more stylized and reflective of the duo’s love of William Blake’s poetry.
“Guard Plants” shows the face of a boy in military-style uniform framed by leaves and vines in intense primary colors, while “Dog Boy” is a black-and-white shot of a teenage kid flanked by rows of flowers in full bloom. “Heavy” shows three dreamy young men floating in the sky with hair that looks as if it’s on fire.

Shaniqwa Jarvis Teams With X-Girl to Drop Capsule Collection at Social Studies NY

STREET-SMART FASHION: The streetwear brand X-Girl has lined up portrait photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis for its latest collaboration.
Compact to the degree that only three items are offered, the styles are available through Sunday at Social Studies NY, a multipurpose space and pop-up. To help spread the word about the collaboration, photographer Chandler Kennedy shot the painter and model Monica Hernandez wearing the assortment. A “Mini Me” crewneck sweatshirt retails for $ 95, the $ 50 “Too Many Rich People in NY” T-shirt and the $ 50 “Less, Less, Less” tote bag, which was hand-dyed by Jarvis, are up-for-grabs.
Jarvis, who has shot for Gap, Supreme, Riposte and others, dove into the capsule collection sector last year for the launch of her Baque Creative Press-published book. Started by musician Kim Gordon and stylist Daisy von Furth in 1994, the X-Girl brand has renewed its focus on New York, and is on the lookout for new talent and creatives that align with the brand. The company has more than 100 stores in Japan and has loyalists like Chloë Sevigny and Sofia Coppola. Early on, the Lafayette Street-rooted label rallied young feminists and that ethos remains.

Alice + Olivia Unveils Capsule Featuring Artwork of Keith Haring

Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet is unveiling a capsule collection featuring the artwork of Keith Haring.
Past Alice + Olivia collaborations include Domingo Zapata, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Donald Robertson. The collection will be available today.
When Bendet was designing the resort 2019 collection, colors such as canary, cherry and cobalt were featured heavily, reminding her of Haring’s work, the company said. His signature, vibrant, fun palette of primary colors embodied Bendet’s creative spirit, which inspired the capsule collection of ready-to-wear and accessories featuring Haring’s trademark dancing figures and prints in patchwork collages.
“I have always been a fan of Keith Haring’s work — the colors and graphics,” Bendet said. “He was also one of the first artists to advance social causes, and I think at this time in our world, it’s especially important to support artists who have made a difference.”
Haring, whose work responded to urban street culture of the Eighties, died in 1990 at the age of 31. He was inspired by the graffiti artists whose marks covered the city’s subway cars.
The Keith Haring x Alice + Olivia capsule collection includes a dancing figures print on a leather jacket, reversible bomber, cardigan, T-shirts, ballgown skirts, a clutch and booties, and a

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.

Hugo Boss Teams With Jeremyville on Holiday Capsule

Every year, Hugo Boss commissions an artist to create a special collection to commemorate the Chinese New Year and the holiday season. Some years it’s easier, like 2018, the Year of the Dog, when the German brand worked with artist Julian Meagher to create Playforever, a collection centered around race cars where a dog is featured in the driver’s seat.
But 2019 will be the Year of the Pig, which creative director Ingo Wilts admitted “was a little bit challenging. How can we do Hugo Boss and a pig in a fun way?”

The sneakers are printed with pigs and other characters. 

But when the brand found New York City-based artist Jeremyville, he soon put its fears to rest. The artist offered up a colorful cityscape featuring an array of characters, including pigs, that the brand put on accessories such as bags and shoes as well as apparel. The characters were printed onto leather accessories in a relief design, a leather backpack features a Jeremyville rabbit, and a sneaker has a raised pig motif. There are also dress shirts, sweatshirts, tees and bombers as well as figurines, charms and iPhone cases.

Boss Celebrates Heritage With ‘Made in Germany’ Capsule

BERLIN — Hugo Boss is keeping things close to home with its latest capsule collection: Boss “Made in Germany.”
While the Metzingen-based giant is more normally inclined to emphasize its global expertise, Boss is now openly celebrating its heritage with a 12-piece capsule for men and women designed and manufactured in Germany.
“Made in Germany” is not exactly new for Boss, pointed out chief brand officer Ingo Wilts. The brand’s full canvas suits are all produced in Boss headquarters. “But we’re proud to be the biggest premium fashion-maker in Germany, and thought it would be great to do something German and celebrate our heritage.”
He added, “We also know that whenever we go outside Germany, in France or Asia, for example, they really appreciate [articles] made in Germany. Though it was a big effort to find someone who makes knits and leathers here.” The lion’s share of the collection, which has a natty tailored slant, was manufactured at Boss headquarters in Metzingen.
Built on the brand’s tailoring DNA and working with Italian fabrics exclusively developed for Boss, the collection features six revamped classics each for men and women. Men have their pick of a double-breasted coat and blouson in a bonded wool check, a burgundy

Danielle Guizio Teams With FDNY to Create Limited-Edition Capsule Collection

FOUR-ALARM FASHION: With a few relatives who are firefighters, Danielle Guizio understands the round-the-clock dedication that goes with the job. Now the New York-based contemporary designer has created a capsule collection with the New York City Fire Department. Developed to honor the work of New York’s bravest, the nine-piece collection of genderless streetwear features FDNY logos and incorporates uniform accents and fire truck insignia.
Four years into her own company, Guizio started her career as a stylist, working with Lady Gaga’s stylist among others. More recently, she started doing a little personal shopping on the side at the request of her friends including Halsey, whom she first met six years ago. One of Giuzio’s childhood friends is now the musician’s manager. The designer said she first got to know of Halsey via the Internet. “It might have even been before Instagram,” she said.
The pair became friends during their leaner days, when each was trying to make their way. At that time, Halsey was sleeping on the floor with two of Giuzio’s other friends in a New York apartment. As for lending a hand to Gaga’s wardrobe, Guizio said she grew up singing and dancing to the six-time Grammy winner’s music in

Encompassing ready-to-wear, accessories, footwear, sunglasses and jewelry, the day-to-night capsule carries a Paris-to-L.A. story line, with Gerber — Cindy Crawford’s 16-year-old daughter and doppelgänger — injecting a contemporary Malibu-cool vibe into the looks.
Items include a wetsuit-inspired bodysuit emblazoned with the Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia logo; logo hoodies and biker jackets, and a double-breasted tuxedo jacket worn as a dress and paired with thigh-high socks and a cap to give an American teenager vibe à la Britney Spears.

Woolmark Partners With 3.1 Phillip Lim on Fall Capsule

The Woolmark Co. has teamed with 3.1 Phillip Lim to develop a fall collection and ad campaign.
Collaborating with Woolmark, designer Phillip Lim sourced a selection of innovative fabrics and yarns to produce 24 key women’s wear pieces designed with Australian merino wool. The capsule also includes Lim’s first production of a wool puffer coat, which will be featured in the campaign.
Lim and Woolmark will host special in-store events at select Saks Fifth Avenue and Lane Crawford locations, timed with the capsule’s delivery in October.
“Our ‘Merino Series’ speaks to the spirit of individuality, a core tenet of the 3.1 Phillip Lim brand ethos,” said Lim. “For this capsule, we wanted to utilize wool in unexpected ways and reimagine its boundaries. We explored the character of a lavish nomad with colors, dusted by the sun, silhouettes patch-worked together and playful, exaggerated proportions — an eclecticism collected from travel and memory.
“Whether it is the oversized puffer coat, the checked suit, or the color-blocked panne-pressed trench, I found the breadth and possibility within the material to be quite compelling for the modern woman’s wardrobe,” said the designer.

Victoria Beckham Previews Reebok Capsule Collection in L.A. Alongside Shaquille O’Neal

While Victoria Beckham’s Reebok capsule collaboration won’t be released until later this year, the designer unveiled what she called “a little merch collection” on Thursday night during a Reebok event held at The House on Sunset in West Hollywood. Beckham was joined by longtime Reebok ambassador Shaquille O’Neal as well her husband David Beckham and their three sons Brooklyn, Cruz and Romeo, who all wore coordinating monochromatic pieces from their mother’s new line. “They are very excited because they love sportswear,” she said. “And they’re huge Shaq fans.”

The new throwback line pays homage to O’Neal and consists of two shirts and two hoodies emblazoned with the NBA All Star’s name. The pieces will be available next month on Reebok and Beckham’s web sites. The collection was inspired by Beckham’s recent visit to the brand’s Boston headquarters, where she explored the Reebok archives and found herself drawn to its heritage basketball pieces from the Nineties.
While Beckham has lent her name to promoting the new merchandise, her personal branding isn’t anywhere on it. “This is just a little collection that I wanted to do to celebrate Reebok, celebrate Shaq and really celebrate

Teyana Taylor, GCDS to Debut Capsule Collection

MILAN — “I love strong, independent women who have made a name for themselves, with incredible energy,” said Giuliano Calza, founder and designer of Italian contemporary streetwear firm GCDS.
The brand is gearing up to debut a capsule collection codesigned with recording artist, dancer, fitness entrepreneur and social media phenomenon Teyana Taylor, who has 6.1 million Instagram followers.
The capsule collection, which is named “Harlem made,” pays homage to Taylor’s origins. “It’s streetwear, where the hood and high fashion meet. That’s always been me. It’s Harlem made, I am Harlem. So it represents me as well as the culture,” she explained. The lineup includes T-shirts, hoodies, bodysuits and accessories, which are priced from 20 euros for a pair of socks to 160 euros for a sweatshirt.
“Last summer, I was in Los Angeles and I came across this late Eighties T-shirt with [a picture of] Cher holding a rainbow flag in her hand, and it was one of her tour merchandise items,” explained Calza, who drew his inspiration from vintage items from that period. “Modern icons don’t communicate this strong way anymore,” he continued, highlighting that instead of chasing cool, the collection is aimed at celebrating Taylor’s uniqueness and diversity.

Eres Partners With The Apartment for 50th Anniversary Capsule

French luxury swimwear brand Eres is turning 50 this year. The company is rereleasing five of its signature bodies in new colors and patterns as part of a Reeditions capsule. It’s partnering with The Apartment by The Line, the New York store owned by Vanessa Traina, on a pop-up shop for the capsule in mid April.
This is the first time The Line is carrying Eres, a brand Traina has been eyeing for a while. “It’s a brand I’ve always dreamt of working with,” Traina said. “When we were building the foundations of The Line, it was built around items we all had in our closets. Eres certainly holds a prominent stake in my summer and year-round wardrobe.”
The Apartment is the only New York retailer that will carry the capsule, which consists of eight suits. Three of the shapes, the Sirene, Surligné and Niko, and two emblematic prints, the Playa and Miami, were reissued. “Women’s bodies changed, shapes changed but the more important change was the development of new fabrics with Elastane inside,” said Marie-Paule Minchelli, head of the design studio for Eres. “Eres used an exclusive fabric called Peau Douce, that’s the secret of our second skin effect.”

Michael Kors Collaborates With Artist David Downton for Special Capsule

THE ART OF THE SKETCH: Michael Kors has teamed with renowned fashion artist David Downton on a special capsule collection. The designs will be shown at the Michael Kors runway show at the Beaumont Theater at Lincoln Center Wednesday at 10 a.m. The capsule will hit stores this fall.
While additional details weren’t divulged, it is believed that the illustrations will appear on handbags.
In 1966, Downton was commissioned to draw at the Paris couture by a Sunday supplement and since then his illustrated reports from the shows have appeared in such publications as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar and The New York Times. His commercial client list includes Chanel, Dior, Tiffany & Co., Topshop, Joyce Hong Kong, Harrods, Estée Lauder and the V&A Museum. He has also produced portraits of some celebrities including Cate Blanchett, Dita Von Teese, Catherine Deneuve and Linda Evangelista.
“This is our first collaboration with an artist for Michael Kors Collection, and it is very personal. David captures people’s essence and style without feeling the need to draw every detail about them — it’s the magic of a great illustrator,” Kors said.

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.

Bruce Oldfield, British Couturier, Unveils Custom-Made Women’s Wear Capsule Collection

A COUTURIER’S CAPSULE: British couturier Bruce Oldfield is launching a capsule collection of custom-made women’s wear and accessories that is “more commercial” but aimed to please his high net worth clients.
Oldfield, who has designed for the likes for Princess Diana, said due to the rising prices over the last few years — and the decreased value of the pound — he has lost some clientele not because they can’t afford to, but opted to book a holiday instead. “It’s redressing the balance slightly,” said Oldfield. “It’s very easy to do custom-made. I don’t have to make a collection or build stock — which suits me. I’m a small self-owned brand. It’s really just offering something to that customer that I know is there — at a more affordable price.”
The custom-made collection is a capsule that consists of gowns, day dresses, skirts, blouses, jackets alongside accessories including bags, stoles and scarves. While Oldfield omitted placing embellishments on apparel, he developed a new embroidery on accessories, which he employed on a stole as seen in a silk velvet stole appliquéd onto Chantilly lace.
“When I first started, my first job was in New York at Henri Bendel,” said Oldfield. “I love that American sensibility.

Dior Homme Taps Patrick Demarchelier for Capsule Ad Campaign

Patrick Demarchelier is behind the new, moody pre-collection campaign for Kris Van Assche’s slinky Dior Homme designs for spring.
The photographer, who’s a frequent Dior collaborator, took cues from the strictly black and white color palette for the spring 2018 Dior Homme collection in his shots of stern, but fine-featured young men in a capsule collection of sharp evening looks.
The noir-heavy photos more than show off the louche tailoring of the collection — black layers of a mock turtleneck, dress shirt, tie and jacket are barely decipherable and most of the photos are half-shrouded in shadow — but Van Assche’s wish to reinterpret formalwear is apparent. He’s even dubbed the collection “Black Carpet.”
“The idea of the Black Carpet was to convey the energy and rebel attitude of the runway collection in a capsule collection of eveningwear, while playing with the embellishment codes and the know-how of Dior, reworking the evening suit by pushing it in a more extreme interpretation,” Van Assche said.

Dior Homme spring 2018 capsule campaign by Patrick Demarchelier.

Kipling and Disney Collaborate on Accessories Capsule

Disney has teamed with Kipling on a line of accessories, beginning with holiday.
It is the latest effort by the Nineties brand — best known for its fanny-pack and cross-body styles, each accompanied by an ape charm – to increase its popularity and reach a new generation of consumers. In July, Kipling collaborated with Urban Outfitters Inc. on a limited-edition line of accessories.
In its first collaboration with Disney, Kipling has taken inspiration from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Poison apple and magic mirror motifs are scattered throughout the multistyle collection, to be priced from $ 29 to $ 149 at retail. Shapes include backpacks, handbags and small travel accessories.
“It’s really about the synergy between the two brands — Kipling is fun and energetic and youthful and shares Disney’s sense of imagination,” said president of Kipling North America Nina Flood.
Kipling’s tie-up with Disney is to continue through 2019. With each new collection, Kipling will dote on style signatures of a different Disney princess.

Exclusive: Faith Connexion Taps Sita Abellan for First Capsule Collection

Sita Abellan is bolstering her design cred. The model, DJ and self-described “technoprincess” teamed with Faith Connexion for its first capsule collection, out next week.
“It was amazing to work on this capsule with Faith Connexion,” said Abellan, who modeled for the brand’s summer 2017 look book. “It felt [like] I could really express myself without boundaries. I’m very happy about this collaboration.”
Inspired by the song “Typical Girls” by female punk-rock group The Slits, the capsule collection puts forth nine pieces that embody Abellan’s devil-may-care attitude. These include: black tulle leggings, a Nineties-inspired poplin minidress, a mesh-and-tulle robe, high-waisted stretch silk leather trousers, a black silk jumpsuit, a mini cargo vest, motorcycle trousers and a metallic blue calfskin biker jacket adorned with 2,500 studs. There’s also a top made entirely of “Faith” patches that pays homage to the brand while exemplifying Abellan’s enthusiasm for DIY. Most of the designs incorporate her signature shade (and current color of her hair): electric blue.
“Sita is the eyes of the new generation and through the collaboration with Faith we captured this mood through her electric touch and her identifiable iconic blue used throughout the collection,” said Maria Buccellati, Faith Connexion’s president.

Dsquared2 to Launch Capsule Collection Against Online Bullying

MILAN — Dsquared2 founders and creative directors Dean and Dan Caten will launch a capsule collection in partnership with the cyber antibullying movement “Be Cool Be Nice.” A portion of the profits from the sale of the graphic lineup of apparel and accessories will go toward the foundation, which aims to stop online bullying of young adults and children.
“Online bullying is a powerful and scary issue that can have a lasting, negative impact on young people’s lives,” said Dean Caten. “We were bullied as kids and we understand how destructive it is,” added Dan Caten. The designers revealed they immediately joined the cause as “it’s important to give kids and teenagers who are forming their personalities space to discover themselves without judgment, criticism and hate.”
The capsule collection — which includes denim, sweatshirts, T-shirts, baseball caps, high-heeled sandals for women and sneakers for men — was conceived to channel “an attitude of strength, confidence and positivity.” Every item features the name of the foundation and the logo of the brand, contrasting the garment’s classic color palette of black, gray and white.

Ashley Graham Designs Capsule for Marina Rinaldi

MILAN — Ashley Graham and Marina Rinaldi are taking their relationship one step further.
The Ashley Graham x Marina Rinaldi capsule collection for spring will be unveiled in Milan on Sept. 22, during Milan Fashion Week. The event will be staged at the newly restored 19th-century Teatro Gerolamo and is called “Let’s Denim” as the line hinges on jersey designs that look like denim. “This allows for extra comfort,” explained Lynne Webber, managing director of Marina Rinaldi. “It’s very difficult for plus-size customers to find the right fit with denim and we wanted to use comfortable fabrics that have a super recovery quality and dress all silhouettes.”
Graham has been fronting Marina Rinaldi’s advertising campaigns for two seasons. “We thought it was a good idea to reinforce this [commitment] with this new role as a designer,” Webber remarked. “Ashley is a super positive role model with a vast following on social media. The capsule is centered on Ashley as a typical consumer, there is an identification with her.”
With an entry price starting from $ 180, the capsule includes a practical lineup of shirts, dresses and body-hugging pants as well as strapless jumpsuits and motorcycle jackets, with metallic details with Graham’s signature.

GEORGIA’S GEAR: Georgia May Jagger has teamed with Volcom Stone Row on a capsule range.

M.I.A. MERCH: The British singer-songwriter Mathangi Arulpragasam — better known by her stage name M.I.A. — has teamed with the Danish designer Astrid Andersen on a capsule clothing range that launches this week.
The collaboration came about after Arulpragasam requested some spring 2017 garments from Andersen, and the musician asked if they could work together in some way. She lauded Andersen’s merging of “function, sport, simplicity and futurism.”
“M.I.A’s message is strong and pure and her personality is strong-willed and determined. That’s rare to find and that’s what made her so incredible to work with,” said Andersen. “For this particular project, it all happened super fast. We have the same references, so it was natural to create pieces from my spring 2017 collection and use her colors and artwork.”
The designer, who was inspired by artwork from the musician’s latest album, “AIM,” used silhouettes from her spring 2017 show. She revamped them using light technical materials in black, coral and beige.
The collection made its debut at the Astrid Andersen flagship in Denmark to celebrate Copenhagen Fashion Week. The range consists of anoraks, T-shirts and track pants. Prices range from 50 pounds for a T-shirt to 120 pounds for an anorak. It will be

“The pieces really just encompass what summer is all about; having fun and enjoying life’s bounty. We also wanted to make a weekend vacation wardrobe for the urban woman. What can she throw in the duffel and wear back to work on Monday morning?” said the designer, adding that she was drawn to the sophisticated yet “fresh and fun” aesthetic, Browns is known for.
Some of the highlights in the collection include a bold, red pleated skirt; a gingham midi dress, and a straw bag and hat. Prices range from 540 pounds or $ 695 for the swimwear pieces to 2,710 pounds or $ 3,491 for a gingham ruffle dress.
The line will launch on Browns’ web site on July 19 and will coincide with the drop of a number of

Online retailer Forward by Elyse Walker and the Council of Fashion Designers of America have linked to launch the CFDA & Forward Rising Talent Retail Program, in which Walker, her buying team and partners Mike Mente and Mike Karanikolas of RevolveClothing.com will mentor up-and-coming luxury fashion designers with retail strategies as well as guiding them in the development of exclusive capsule collections for Forward.
Designers Juan Carlos Obando, Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis of Suno and Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard of Veronica Beard were hand-selected by both parties for the inaugural program, a two-day workshop in Los Angeles on best practices across various verticals through a retail market lens to achieve the next stage of growth.

H&M Unveils Capsule Collection by Ximon Lee

PARIS — Hennes & Mauritz AB on Thursday unveiled an eight-piece capsule collection by Ximon Lee, the first men’s wear designer to win the Swedish high street retailer’s annual Design Award.
In line with the growing trend of genderless clothing, Lee envisions the outfits being worn by both men and women. The line is to go on sale in select H&M stores and online on Oct. 22.
Known for extreme silhouettes, Lee used bonded fabrics to create items like a heavy twill denim jacket and a pair of wide shorts. He said translating his concept pieces, which incorporate materials like cardboard and plastic, into a commercial line with H&M was a long process.
“When I started working on the collection with them, they were very open to my opinions. I’m very particular in terms of the color, the material and even when it comes to snaps and zippers, I didn’t want to sacrifice any ideas that I began with. The production went really smoothly,” Lee told WWD.
The designer, who is based in New York City and graduated from Parsons The New School for Design last year, plans to show his first full collection in a show or presentation format during men’s fashion week in

London Designer Katie Eary Teams With KFC on Capsule Collection

PLAYING CHICKEN: KFC has recruited edgy London men’s wear designer Katie Eary in its mission to demonstrate how much can be done in a lunch hour.
As part of the fast food brand’s #PackMoreIntoLunch campaign, KFC challenged Eary to create a capsule women’s wear collection for spring 2016 in 60 minutes.
On the day of the challenge, 25 machinists sewed like crazy to create 13 looks, worn by 10 models in a catwalk show at the Old Truman Brewery in London.
The collection, like the playful and irreverent men’s wear Eary is known for, was brightly colored, with a palette rooted in fluorescent orange and green.
Butterflies were the print motif, superimposed over hypersized KFC chickens — it shouldn’t have worked but it did. Floaty silk chiffon minidresses and cropped tops came with a lovely ostrich feather trim in neon green.
A red bias-cut slipdress that reached just above the ankles managed to be sexy and sophisticated, while the twist-front swimsuits had definite commercial appeal.
Of course, some preparations had been made. The collection had been finalized two weeks before: All the patterns had been made, and almost everything had been pre-cut for the 60-minute sew-a-thon.
There was a rawness to some looks that probably wasn’t intentional,

Roksanda Marks 10 Years with Capsule Collection

Roksanda Turns 10: Roksanda Ilincic’s Roksanda label marks its 10th anniversary this year, and the London-based designer has dipped back into her archive to celebrate the milestone.
The designer has this week launched a 10-piece capsule collection that’s inspired by Ilincic’s back catalogue of designs — which make a feature of bold colors and strong silhouettes — over the past 10 years.
The looks include the Margot dress that Ilincic first showed in spring 2012, a shift dress with tuliplike sleeves, which she’s redone in tomato red and a voluminous, tiered smock dress, which originally came in deep purple, but is now in black.
Ilincic said looking back at her archive, she believes that “as a designer you evolve and change season to season.” “Culture has changed and the economic situation has changed,” Ilincic mused, noting that all those influences impact her aesthetic.
And while Ilincic launched her line on the London Fashion Week schedule for spring 2006 with “12 occasion dresses,” the line now comprises looks that her woman can wear “seven days a week,” the designer said. Alongside ready-to-wear, the label also includes a children’s collection, Blossom, and swimwear, while looking ahead she has categories such as handbags and fine jewelry in her

Neymar Jr Tapped for Replay Ad Campaign, Capsule Collection

Replay has chosen Neymar Jr as the new face of the brand.
The Italian denim company and the soccer star, who plays in the Barcellona F.C. team and is the captain of the Brazilian national team, signed a partnership contract valid through August 2018.
Neymar Jr won’t only appear in Replay’s new ad campaign but he will also design a special collection, to be called “NJR,” for the label. Replay already provides the FC Barcelona team with the official off-field uniforms and shoes.
“When Matteo [Matteo Sinigaglia, Replay chief executive officer] offered me the chance to take part in this project, I immediately agreed to represent a brand which reflects my style,” said Neymar Jr.
“I’m very happy to link our brand to such a talent as Neymar, who is not just an incredible champion, but also a legend, able to enchant crowds with his energy, passion and determination,” Sinigaglia said. “These are the values which have always driven Replay. And it’s this shared vision which made this collaboration possible.”
Replay is controlled by Fashion Box, which operates in 50 countries distributing the Replay, Replay & Sons and We Are Replay collections in 3,000 points of sales in the world, as well as in 200 retail stores.

Capsule Men’s RTW Spring 2016

Capsule nabbed a slot at New York Fashion Week: Men’s and showcased seven emerging designers who will also appear at the trade show next week.
 
London-based brand CMMN explored the concept of real versus fake for its spring collection and this was realized with silhouettes that were purposely off. Cropped jackets with longer sleeves were styled with wide-leg trousers and shorter, slim pants. On the fabric side, technical nylons and latex were paired with organic denim and French terry. It was a nice play on proportion and fabric that made for a strong offering.
 
Maiden Noir’s lineup was based on atmospheric, landscape photographs taken by Amanda Ringstad. On-trend staples — anoraks, bomber jackets, jogging pants and matching denim coordinates — came in either washed-out fabrics or strong jolts of cobalt and copper. It was a fresh interpretation of commercial pieces.
 
There was a nautical tone in Baartmans and Siegel’s collection. Coming in various shades of blue, white and gray, the assortment featured a utilitarian jacket covered in an enlarged digital print and sailing shorts worn over chambray styles. The designers updated luxury sportswear nicely with print and texture.

Galeries Lafayette Taps Hyères Finalist for Capsule Line

NEW FACE: French department store chain Galeries Lafayette has tapped Louis-Gabriel Nouchi, a finalist in the 2014 edition of the Hyères Festival, to design a 15-piece capsule collection for fall set to go on sale on Sept. 23.
The collection is made up of minimalistic looks in bright colors that use abstract patterns and oversized volumes to mix feminine and masculine codes.
“The idea was to have that masculine-feminine ambivalence, on one side a very masculine woman who becomes even more feminine like that I think, and on the other side a man playing with the feminine codes without being ridiculous. It’s about the right balance between the two,” Nouchi said in a YouTube interview.
“I also really like color, because I think it’s the field in which we can try new combinations, new proportions,” he explained.
A graduate of La Cambre, Nouchi was spotted at the Hyères Festival, which Galeries Lafayette has sponsored for eight years. Recently, the retailer recruited young design duo Marius et Léonie to create a capsule collection for its Version Originale private label. It has also supported the ANDAM prize since 2003.

Mary Katrantzou, Adidas Launch Second Capsule Collection

EIGHTIES EDGE: “I’m an Eighties baby, and it was amazing to just go back and look at all of these aerobics classes and the Seoul Olympics and just take symbols from that,” said Mary Katrantzou at the launch party in London for her second capsule collection for Adidas Originals. “We started thinking about symbolism and how we can take that within the context of Adidas. But also the silhouettes — there are little tennis dresses and diving suits and track tops so I thought that was a fun spin on the idea of symbols.” The party took place on the rooftop of Snap Studios in East London, with totem poles made by Katrantzou and the prop designer Richard Storey and adorned with the designer’s prints.
Katrantzou used collages made from sports items including a stopwatch, a tennis racket and a badminton shuttlecock for the 24-piece collection. Pieces include a structured T-shirt adorned with patches and crystals, a reversible varsity jacket, a crepe tank dress, leggings, tracksuit bottoms, boyfriend T-shirts, boy shorts, jersey swimsuits and footwear. Katrantzou also put a holographic spin on footwear with bold patterns and floral jacquards.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Rebecca Hessel Cohen Partner on Capsule Collection

FANCIFUL BUNNIES: Rebecca Hessel Cohen, creative director of Love Shack Fancy, designs ethereal gauze maxidresses and playful lace rompers that are perfect for casual days in the city or the beach. Julia Restoin Roitfeld, an art director, fashion consultant and model, runs the online publication Romy & the Bunnies, which is dedicated to pregnancy and motherhood. Cohen and Restoin Roitfeld met last summer in the Hamptons where their daughters, 22-month-old Scarlet and three-year-old Romy, respectively, were taking swimming lessons from the same teacher.
The mothers developed a friendship that led to LoveShackFancy X Romy and the Bunnies, an eight-piece capsule for children aged six months to five years, inspired by their daughters.
The collection, which has an easy summer bohemian vibe, will be sold at a handful of retailers, including Sunset Beach in Shelter Island, N.Y., and Aerin in Southampton, N.Y., The Webster in Miami and Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche in Paris. The capsule will also be available on the Web sites Loveshackfancy.com and Romyandthebunnies.com.

Petit Bateau Taps Jean-Charles de Castelbajac for Capsule Line

PARIS — Petit Bateau has tapped Jean-Charles de Castelbajac to put a fresh spin on house classics like the striped top and sailing jacket.
The designer, known for his Pop Art-inspired creations and love of primary colors, has designed a capsule collection of a dozen items for children and adults that will go on sale at the Petit Bateau store on the Champs-Élysées and online on Oct. 12, before rolling out to some of the brand’s other stores on Oct. 19.
They include a top and a dress where the horizontal striped jersey has been spliced together diagonally to create a chevron pattern; a bright yellow rain poncho with see-through panels set into the hood; and tops featuring de Castelbajac’s whimsical drawings of characters including a young sailor.
The latter illustration was inspired by his seven-year-old grandson Balthazar, who also modeled for the collection’s look book, which was photographed by his dad Guilhem. “It’s a family affair, like the song says,” quipped the designer, also known by his initials JCDC.
He tapped into memories of childhood vacations in Brittany, in particular his first girlfriend, who wore striped tops and a yellow waxed jacket to go sailing.
“There is a mixture of femininity and functionality. I

The Fresh Prints of M.Patmos: The Designer Launches a Capsule Collection with Artist Ryan McGinness

M.Patmos x Ryan McGinness

At first glance, it might seem a case of opposites attracting. There’s Marcia Patmos, the designer behind M.Patmos, the line of luxe knits and sleek, modern pieces who’s constantly updating her definition of minimalist cool each season with new textiles and motifs. It’s that continued focus on innovation and technique that’s earned her recognition like the Ecco Domani award and, most recently, the International Woolmark Prize. Then there’s Ryan McGinness, the skater turned fine artist whose paintings and installations incorporate public signage, graphically rendered text, and iconography, bringing corporate logos and symbols into a museum context.

But a mutual friend sensed that the work of the designer and artist would indeed have quite a lot to talk about, and the result of that conversation plays out in a M.Patmos x Ryan McGinness spring 2015 capsule collection, a fresh offering of limited-edition pieces that merge bold, graphic-centric prints with refined silhouettes. They’re part of her spring collection, which lands in stores soon, including, this time around, the museum shops of the Cooper-Hewitt and the Whitney, whose new building Patmos has been watching go up from her studio near the High Line.

“Our friend thought—and it was true!—that Ryan’s work would translate well to textiles and fashion,” Patmos says over tea and the indie pop rock of the Vaselines and the Psychedelic Furs playing in the background at a Fort Greene coffee shop. “I went to his studio and it was so inspiring, we talked about techniques we wanted to try, we found we had a lot in common. He liked the idea that so much of my stuff is menswear-influenced, because, of course, he wanted to be able to wear the clothes himself. So we shifted toward the idea of the clothes being unisex and reconfigured things a bit.” She pulls out a T-shirt meant for any gender—printed in 3M reflective ink, with four gray lines shooting across the surface into a spray of leaves and flora, like an intersection of masculine and feminine—“It glows in the dark!” Patmos points out. And you can imagine the squiggle-print-on-print pattern of a gray, black, and white sweatshirt-sweater landing in her closet just as easily as his: These are eminently borrowable pieces.

Well, except, perhaps for the reversible scuba dress, whose flattering cut alas makes it too form-fitting for even the most fluid-minded wearers to share, but whose multiple-screen print shows up just as beautifully when worn inside out. The traveler ethos that runs through M.Patmos’s collections means clothes that are intended to be styled in numerous ways. “We wanted to keep the body very lean, to sort of temper the boldness of the pattern,” Patmos says.

This is her inner minimalist talking, of course: Even when she’s pairing up with master artisans like the Nepalese group she works with each season, or the Tibetan nomads she’s collaborating with on a yak-fiber coat for fall, Patmos’s instinct is to keep things looking modern, never “too crafty.” “I love superbeautiful plain art,” she says. “My husband and I went to Dia: Beacon yesterday, and that place is always just heaven to me, so simple and calm and usually not that colorful. But I’m also attracted to things that are a mix.”

So working with McGinness proved to be both “a lot of fun and very organic” and also completely surprising at times. Like when the artist opted for the bright edging on the pashmina they made together, in cooperation with a group of Nepalese artisans Patmos works with every season. The bulk of the pashmina is covered with McGinness’s cartoon thought bubbles exploding across the surface, which feel pop and classic (“they could almost be paisley!”) all at once. “So much of his own palette is very rigid, very black and gray, so it was really interesting to see the colors he picked,” Patmos says. And when she unfolds the blanket-size scarf in the midst of a wintry coffee-shop scene of rain-spattered windows, silver laptops, and drab parkas flung over the backs of chairs, the optic effect of the black-and-white print and the shades of cherry-blossom pink and citrus instantly catch the eyes of more than a few eavesdroppers in the room, eager for welcome signs of spring.
