NEW YORK CALLING: Savile Row tailor Ozwald Boateng will hit New York on May 5 with an immersive fashion experience at the Apollo theater in Harlem, showcasing the brand’s women’s collection.
The show will be a celebration of culture, diversity, music, history and fashion and mark the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance, “starting with a short film on Africanism, and guiding us into the future of artificial intelligence,” according to the company.
VIPs within sports and entertainment are expected to appear at the former Givenchy designer’s runway show, the brand added.
Boateng, whose parents immigrated to the U.K. in the Fifties, was the youngest designer of African descent to open a business on London’s Savile Row. He founded his company in 1995, and was part of a new bespoke movement that catapulted him to international recognition.
Known for his bright flashes of color and twist on classic British tailoring, his brand offers in-store bespoke services as well as ready-to-wear men’s wear and items such as ties, shirts and knitwear.
The thing about Todd Snyder clothing is not only does it look great, it’s also extremely well-crafted. Much of it’s made from fantastic materials and clever patterns you just don’t see anywhere else. From supple chinos to killer blazers to Todd’s legendary collaborations, this is couture that’s not just stylish, but made for everyday. It’s affordable, too. And you wouldn’t have to look hard to find gear that’s far more costly and not nearly as high quality. It’s quality fashion made for the modern guy.
There’s even an entire section of the site dedicated to brands, where you’ll discover great curated collections from legendary fashion names such as Blundstone, Filson, and Red Wing to respected newcomers such as Mack Weldon and Scosha.
J’ADIOR LA MER: Dior is expanding its beach collection with the opening of dedicated Dioriviera spaces from mid-May in 44 points of sale worldwide.
Eight stores will carry merchandise, including T-shirts and tote bags, bearing the name of the destination where they are sold. These branded products will be available in pop-ups in Porto Cervo, Forte dei Marmi, Mykonos and Ibiza, and Dior boutiques in Saint-Tropez, Marbella, Capri and Portofino.
Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director for women’s wear at Dior, has beefed up the capsule line with graphic pieces inspired by Toile de Jouy and Ballets Russes costumes. Accessories such as the Dior Book Tote, Walk’n’Dior sneakers and woven bracelets feature the name of founder Christian Dior.
The Porto Cervo, Forte dei Marmi and Mykonos pop-ups will run from mid-May to late September, while a new temporary space in Ibiza will be open from early June to September. A selection of products will go on sale online in Europe and the U.S. from May 11.
Dior introduced the beach collection at its pop-up store in Mykonos last year, joining the ranks of luxury brands courting customers in summer holiday destinations with in-season merchandise and convenient temporary locations.

PARIS — Chloé is heading east. The French fashion house plans to unveil its resort collection in Shanghai on June 5, marking Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s first personal appearance in China since being appointed creative director in 2017, WWD has learned.
“It’s the first time Chloé is staging a catwalk show outside Paris in the history of the house,” said Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye, chief executive officer of Chloé.
While it will also mark the first time Chloé shows a pre-collection on the runway, de la Bourdonnaye said the event was a one-off, for now. “It is not a strategy to necessarily stage a show for the pre-collection. It was more: We want to do something special in China for the Chinese Chloé girls,” he explained.
The resort season has become an important showcase for luxury brands, with houses including Chanel, Dior, Prada and Louis Vuitton staging major shows. Ramsay-Levi was in Shanghai in January to draw inspiration for the show, said de la Bourdonnaye, emphasizing that the idea originated with its local team.
“One-hundred percent of the Chloé organization in China is Chinese,” he noted.
It’s an important distinction in the wake of the recent cancellation of Dolce & Gabbana’s planned tribute to China last November, which
As any die-hard “Game of Thrones” fan knows, winter is coming. Now, so too is the popular franchise’s first makeup collection.
The hit HBO series has teamed with Urban Decay for a makeup line inspired by the show’s Seven Kingdoms and women of Westeros. The collection gives a nod to many elements of the show, including Emilia Clarke’s “Mother of Dragons” character and the houses of Targaryen, Lannister and Stark.
In a dramatized video featuring the “Game of Thrones” much-loved intro music, Urban Decay revealed today on its Instagram the full 13-piece collection, which will be released on April 14, the same day the show returns to HBO for its eighth and final season.

FLOWER POWER: Jo Malone London has set up a quiet retreat in central London for the brand’s first immersive installation, which will run from Friday until Sunday. Situated at Victoria House, next to Holborn Station, the underground venue is bringing the brand’s latest limited-edition fragrance, Frangipani Flower, and the Blossom collection to life.
“The collection really called for an experience like this because it is so vast, and I really wanted to be able to transport people to another world. We’re a creative fragrance brand, so we’re not only exploring with ingredients, but with our launches,” said Wandjina Glasheen-Brown, creative director of Jo Malone London.
Upon entry, visitors are guided through a visual installation. Water droplets are designed to fall randomly from the ceiling into a basin beneath, and the ripples trigger the formation of different color patterns.
On the other side of the installation and in the main room, blossoms are arranged on a long acrylic table in a gradient from yellow to red, mirroring the colors of the new Blossom collection.

Spring apparel is starting to roll out, and one of our most anticipated releases has now dropped. The Todd Snyder 2019 Pants collection has hit stores, and we couldn’t be more psyched.
From Japanese Selvedge Denim jeans to Italian Stretch corduroy, Todd Snyder’s 2019 Pants collection has something for every guy. Whether you’re a guy who likes to look sharp, a casual dresser for whom comfort comes first, or (like most of us) fall somewhere in between and enjoy a bit of both, Todd’s new collection of bottoms has something for everyone.
Chriselle Lim is expanding retail partnerships for her eponymous label.
In September, the superinfluencer teamed with Nordstrom to launch the debut line from The Chriselle Lim Collection, her namesake clothing brand. The collection, inspired by the fall season, was sold in 40 Nordstrom doors and online. On March 21, the sophomore line will arrive at Nordstrom and two new retail partners: Bloomingdale’s and Shopbop.
Chriselle Lim modeling her namesake collection, which enters Bloomingdale’s and Shopbop on March 21.
“[Nordstrom is] one of the best retailers out there, but I felt like I was ready to expand the collection and to get it into more hands,” said Lim. “Nordstrom isn’t everywhere — they’re not in New York. I have a ton of New York followers that have been asking and dying for [the collection], so Bloomingdale’s felt like the right fit. Our international customers, as well, are dying to get the collection and I believe that Shopbop has a great international shopping [experience]. I felt we were ready to expand.”
The forthcoming collection, the theme of which is “blooming,” consists of 28 stockkeeping units — tops, trousers, blazers, shorts and matching sets. There is also a larger offering of dresses, as requested by Lim’s
Justice Koolhaas’s Essays on Modern Art are reproduced alongside at least one of each artist’s works that she owned. Unusually, these works were discards; even more unusually, she obtained them on condition that each artist signed a statement disowning them as artworks. Her theory work, a refusenikism written in deliberate opacity, is inspired by her collection of art refuse. Twombly is explored through Walter Benjamin, Deleuze & Guattari and Stéphane Mallarmé. The painter’s interest in the latter’s poetry is obvious from the word-like nature of his mark-making; equally, why Koolhaas was interested in them both is obvious from the way her fanciful and opaque theory evokes sensual understandings rather than anything we could reduce to mere ‘grammar’ or even ‘sense’. Her circumlocution suggests that artists can emerge from within themselves; the machineries of oppression and standardisation are the selfsame machineries that today’s smartest artists are learning to colonise in a reverse movement that throws power back onto itself. The real terror represented by the Jihadist today is the terror that, as Beuys envisioned, everybody realises their creative potential. Working at the margins as a culture jammer therefore demands sophistry with language. An excellent example can found in one of the Twomblys in both the Koolhaas estate and her essay here. C. M. Cohen’s comprehensive interpretations mean that the uninitiated Koolhaas student can pick and mix material from this book to suit their purposes without feeling pressured to grasp everything at once.
Count John Varvatos as among the fans of “Game of Thrones.”
The designer has teamed with the show’s creator, HBO, on an exclusive men’s capsule collection that will launch on Thursday. This marks the first time Varvatos has collaborated with a television series and is the only luxury fashion collaboration for the “Game of Thrones” final season.
The 11-piece collection features hand-dyed leather outerwear, a cross-over henley, pants, a textured messenger bag and graphic prints on spray-dyed Ts. Signature details from the series are found throughout the collection, including outerwear pieces with the Iron Throne motif printed on the inside of a jacket. Prices range from $ 98 for a graphic T-shirt to $ 2,698 for the hand-dyed leather jacket.
A graphic T-shirt from the capsule includes references to the show.
“From the very first episode, I have been inspired by the incredible costumes in ‘Game of Thrones,’” Varvatos said. “To have this opportunity to collaborate is a dream come true.”
“As we prepare for the final season of ‘Game of Thrones,’ we wanted to celebrate with an incredible collaboration for a clothing line inspired by the show,” said Jeff Peters, vice president of licensing and retail for HBO. “John Varvatos has delivered a stunning collection of
Terez, the New York-based ath-leisure brand, is collaborating with the estate of the late Keith Haring to develop the Terez x Keith Haring collection.
The partnership was forged in collaboration with Artestar, which represents high-profile artists, photographers, designers and creatives.
Haring, who died in 1990, was known for his Pop Art and graffiti-like style, which grew out of the New York street culture of the Eighties. The collaboration was said to be heavily inspired by the power of love.
The pieces from Haring’s image library used for this collaboration were those that triggered joy through their vibrant colors, something that is a Terez signature, according to the brand.
The collection includes leggings, bras, tanks, Ts, crewnecks and joggers. Prices range from $ 60 for an uplifted heart-muscle T to $ 101 for a rainbow crowd printed jogger.
The collection launches today and is exclusively being sold at terez.com.

Diane von Furstenberg and mixed-media artist Ashley Longshore are collaborating on a curated art collection of extraordinary women for International Women’s Month.
After meeting Longshore over tea in London in December, von Furstenberg had the idea to put together a collection of Longshore’s art. She gave Longshore a list of women who have inspired her through their energy and achievements.
“I was immediately impressed by Ashley’s contagious enthusiasm and vibrant talent,” said von Furstenberg. “I knew she was a ‘Woman in Charge,’ and I felt she would be perfect to curate our next inspiration room especially with International Women’s Month approaching. The collaboration felt seamless.”
Longshore, who is based in New Orleans, painted a collection of 37 portraits of such women as Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Jackie Kennedy, Cleopatra, Marlene Dietrich, Oprah Winfrey, Gloria Steinem, Michelle Obama, Elizabeth Taylor, Maya Angelou, Whitney Wolfe Herd and Rosa Parks, some wearing von Furstenberg’s most iconic prints and designs. The curated art collection will be unveiled Thursday during von Furstenberg’s International Women’s Day activities and will live in the flagship at 874 Washington Street in the Meatpacking District through May. The artwork will also be available for purchase.
Asked how she decided on the women, von Furstenberg said, “I
EXHIBITIONIST: Phoebe English showcased pieces from her fall 2019 women’s wear offering at the Morley Gallery in South London at an exhibition called “Inanimate, Animate. (Only) Half the Reflection,” a show in two parts, the second of which features 30 charming marionettes wearing to-scale pieces from her archive.
The person-sized clothes, which made their debut during the men’s shows last month in a presentation, were suspended from the ceiling on rotating mechanisms that afforded close-up inspection of the intricate techniques that have earned her a loyal following.
There was a black pinafore dress with T-shaped cuts outlined with wide satin stitch embroidery, and a delicate white mesh harness.
“We call this coat, ‘The Coat of Dreams (and of Nightmares)’,” said English, fondly nodding to a black topper made from a great many patches of recycled black fabric, each piece encased in fine silk tulle. The kind of deceptively simple, thing that a cursory glance sets the mind to thinking, “Right, black coat” but an up-close eye-ball reveals all its complexities.
The space was scented by Timothy Han, who used the aromas of birch tar and dry wheat from his “On the Road” fragrance to emphasize English’s focus on natural sustainable fabrics, and Johanna Burnheart performed
Obviously someone at adidas wasn’t wearing their thinking cap when curating a nod to African Americans. To many, A pair of mayonnaise flavored shoes were insensitive to say the least.
As per Hypebeast the sporting goods manufacturer definitely took a cultural loss when it came to their Black History Month collection. Included in the drop was a UltraBOOST model which in theory would make sense given it is one of their most popular sellers. Problem was it was an all white silhouette AND was named “UNCAGED”. Naturally the move got a huge side eye from sneaker enthusiasts and anybody with a bit of common sense alike.
Considering the set were made in the spirit of “Celebrating Black Culture” adidas released a formal statement apologizing for the huge faux pas.
“Adidas released a new collection in celebration of Black History Month featuring designs inspired by the Harlem Renaissance. It includes footwear and apparel across a variety of categories. Toward the latter stages of the design process, we added a running shoe to the collection that we later felt did not reflect the spirit or philosophy of how adidas believes we should recognize and honor Black History Month. After careful consideration, we have decided to withdraw the product from the collection.”
The sneaker has since been pulled. Other feet pieces included in the collection include re-invisioned versions of the Dame 5, Harden Vol. 3 and a Harlem inspired UltraBOOST. The adidas Black History Month went on sale starting February 5 here.
Dwyane Wade may be retiring at the end of the NBA season, but Bleacher Report is making sure his fans have some memorabilia to help send him off in style.
The online sports site today will debut the D. Wade World Tour collection, an exclusive line of apparel designed to commemorate the basketball star’s career.
The collection of T-shirts, long-sleeve shirts, hoodies and hats is intended to highlight major moments in Wade’s life and include images of him as a child as well as some of his career milestones printed on the back of the pieces to mimic concert tour merchandise.
Prices range from $ 30 for a Dad hat and $ 35 for a T-shirt, to $ 45 for a long-sleeve shirt and $ 75 for a hoodie.
The line will be promoted through an advertising and social media campaign by both Bleacher Report and Wade that will include a concert tour-style photo shoot with the Miami Heat player.
“I have been closely involved in every step of the design process of this very personal collection,” Wade said. “My fashion partnerships have always been an authentic reflection of who I am. It’s been a joy to look back at my career and incorporate very special moments into the
L.A. tie-dye queen Raquel Allegra has a new shoe collaboration with Pedro Garcia. She unveiled the capsule collection during a patchouli-scented party at her Third Street boutique on Thursday night. On hand during the event was BFF Lisa Bonet, one of several fierce Topanga Canyon females to appear in a photo series by Magdalena Wosinka to introduce the shoes.
“It was an excuse to play dress-up with close friends and turn it into an extended story,” explained Allegra, who first made a name for herself back in 2006, turning reclaimed L.A. County Jail tees into one-of-a-kind shirts with her signature shredding and tie-dye technique. She built her hand-crafted vision into a boho-refined brand of relaxed silk suits, evening pajamas, gauzy coats and dresses that retail at Barneys New York, Shopbop and more.
Collaborating with the third-generation Spanish shoemaker was a no-brainer, Allegra said. “The cool thing about working with Pedro is that their company feels very akin to ours; the way they tell their story is as much about people and culture and experience as it is about a shoe.”

The Raquel Allegra x Pedro Garcia capsule collection, $ 395 to $ 560, includes two styles of sneakers, smoking slippers and
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.

Tracy Anderson has partnered with Lingua Franca, the sustainably sourced, fair trade luxury cashmere brand, on a collaboration.
The three-piece collection reflects Anderson’s approach to fitness and healthy living, with hand-stitched embroidered sayings such as “You Are How You Move,” “Create Balance” and “Lifegiving.”
“Each sweater represents a message that I personally follow, and have instilled in my clients for years,” said Anderson, founder and creator of the Tracy Anderson Method. “I am so excited to be partnering with Lingua Franca, a socially progressive brand that I have admired since its inception, and bringing these stylish, health conscious and celebratory pieces to women everywhere.”
The sweaters, which retail for $ 380, will be available for a limited time at Tracy Anderson studio locations in New York and Los Angeles and at tracyanderson.com. The colors are smoke, cream and sea foam. This is a one-time collaboration.

Rachelle Hruska MacPherson, founder of Lingua Franca, said a close friend of hers took her to her first Tracy Anderson class last year and she felt its effects immediately. “Since then I have been a devotee of the Tracy Anderson Method workouts, especially the live-streaming ones, which I do from home.

“This is the first time we’ve really been able to sit back and enjoy what we’ve done,” says Rhode Resort cofounder Phoebe Vickers, celebrating her label’s new six-piece capsule collection for Shopbop at a flower-festooned dinner at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont Thursday night.
Jamie Chung, Skyler Samuels and Shopbop fashion director Caroline Maguire joined guests in wearing the collection’s vacation-ready, exclusive cactus and hibiscus flower-print dresses (some sold with fun, matching belt bags), while sipping prosecco in Bungalow One, before sitting down to dinner beneath a rainbow grove of blooms created by L.A.-based florist Art Fleur.
“We love to nurture young designers,” said Shopbop’s Maguire. “Rhode Resort especially resonates with who our brand is; it’s bright, cheery and colorful — our customer loves it.”

One passionate decision can be hell for an archangel. Gabriel's mission from God was simple. At least that's what he thought, until Helen Warner, his charge, loses her husband in the cataclysmic disaster perpetuated by Asmodeus, the ruthless demon of lust. Unable to stand by and watch while Helen plummets, losing her faith and her will to live, Gabriel defies the rules that have governed his entire existence and plunges to earth with no regard for the consequences. Problem? Intervening without God's permission sets him on a dangerous course rife with deadly distractions and pitfalls, and now, his immortal soul hangs in the balance. His life becomes even more complicated when he befriends Narsaé, a beautiful, powerful, yet untrained force in her own right. Pitted against Asmodeus and his army of demons, unexpected human emotions—jealousy, doubt, even love—threaten his most basic beliefs. Gabriel must protect those he has come to love and unite the warring factions against their common enemy, Asmodeus, while controlling the foreign, often debilitating emotions that torment him. Can Gabriel save their home, all the besieged residents, and Watchtower 11, sending Asmodeus and his army of demons to a fiery Hell? Failure means certain death for all. But Gabriel must face an even more difficult challenge than war and death—will he risk Heaven, immortality, and his very soul for the love of Narsaé?

SWEDE TEAM: Hennes & Mauritz has teamed with Eytys for a gender neutral collection due early next year, targeting younger consumers with a fashion-forward offer.
The fast-fashion retailer will sell the Swedish label’s chunky-soled shoes and clothing for adults as well as items for children, starting Jan. 24 in some stores around the world and online.
The collaboration comes as the Swedish retailer undergoes a vast restructuring in a bid to beef up online services and speed up supply chains to catch up with rivals. The group last month said it would close Cheap Monday, a label geared to younger clients.
“The collection is all about proportions — creating a distinct unisex silhouette by playing around with loose silhouettes and chunky architectural footwear,” said Max Schiller, Eytys creative director.
Colors will include dark green, bright yellow, khaki, dark blue, black and white, while materials will include snakeskin prints, fake patent leather and stiff cotton. Shoes will be offered in boxes decorated with artwork by painter Zoe Barcza.
According to H&M’s statement, the retailer initially approached the label for a shoe collection but then decided on a full range of clothing and accessories, too, in order to show the “whole brand aesthetic and ethos,” according to Ross Lydon,

BUZZING INTO TOKYO: Roughly 100 customers lined up outside Isetan’s men’s building in Shinjuku on Wednesday morning, waiting for the doors to open so they could get their hands on the spring 2019 men’s capsule collection that Kim Jones designed for Dior. It is the first offering released by the designer since he took over as artistic director.
For the capsule, Jones tapped New York-based artist Brian Donnelly, known professionally as Kaws, to reimagine the brand’s classic bee motif, as well as to create a new Dior logo specially for the collection.
At the pop-up, customers can purchase T-shirts to be customized in front of them with a spray gun that dispenses permanent ink in the chosen design. They are also printed with the date and the number of their purchase.
Exclusive to the Tokyo store are items that feature the Kaws bee in pink rather than yellow, including T-shirts, sweatshirts and small leather goods. Also available are Japanese selvedge denim jeans embroidered with the traditional boro method, and the iconic Dior Saddle bag, which Jones has reinterpreted for men for the first time.
Sunglasses and belts with buckles designed by Matthew Williams of Alyx and jewelry by Yoon Ahn complete the offering.
An enforcer wanted dead for crimes she didn’t commit… An assassin wanted dead for crimes he did commit… Normally, they would be enemies, but they both seek the same thing: exoneration.

If they want to win their freedom, they’ll have to battle powerful wizards, outscheme master schemers, and defeat bloodthirsty monsters, all while dodging friendly fire and evading the law. Exoneration isn’t easy. This boxed set includes the first three novels in this high fantasy adventure series: The Emperor’s Edge Dark Currents Deadly Games.
MILAN — Sergio Rossi is stepping into the holiday season in a sparkling way.

A shoe from Sergio Rossi’s 2018 holiday capsule collection.
Flanking the launch, a short video dubbed “A Magic Spark” has been created to promote the lineup on the brand’s web site and social media.
Through the work of multimedia artist Sofia Mattioli and illustrator Delphine Cauly, the video combines illustration with live action, as footage of a dancer sporting the footwear are alternated with sketches depicting the styles and the company’s factory in San Mauro Pascoli.
CHRISTMAS PHILOSOPHY: It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini.
For the first time, the label has developed a capsule collection for the holiday season that includes two sweater styles in merino wool inlaid with Christmas-inspired motifs and slogans, retailing approximately at 350 euros each.
A mini red turtleneck pull carrying the “Team Santa” wording in ivory-white on the front and the number “25” on the back is embellished with a snowflake motif. A matching scarf and a black, oversize hoodie with the same lettering are also in the collection.

In addition, the lineup includes an alternative, round-neck sweater style available in four color combinations and embellished with “Dear Santa” on the front and the “I’ve been naughty” lettering on the back, with overall patterns of hearts, reindeer and snowflakes. A kids’ version has also been developed bearing the alternative “I’ve been good” wording on the back.

Two brands that are all about the communal — zero-waste fashion label Livari and WeWork are teaming for a multipurpose party.
Aimed at using the art of fashion as a medium for activism, New York-based Livari is launching its Collaboration Collection Nov. 27 at WeWork’s Times Square location. About 150 guests will get an earful about different causes, catch MPowered’s solar-powered light installation, walk through a museum-style tutorial, sample indie products like Foughnuts Baked Donuts and shop for cause-related limited-edition products.
Livari was started by actress Alysia Reiner of “Orange Is the New Black” and “Equity,” Claudine DeSola, founder of the Caravan Stylist Studio, and Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs, creator of the Tabii Just label and an organizer of the 2017 Women’s March on Washington, who now works full-time for the group. In between talking with Hilaria Baldwin for her podcast “Mom Brain” Monday and doing a B-roll for “Her Big Idea,” Reiner talked about how the event came together.
Through her environmentalist friend Erin Schrode, she connected with WeWork’s global head of social media partnerships Jacob Shwirtz, who is looking to do more community building among influencers and celebrities and more environmentalism. “What they’ve asked me to do is to have a desk
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.
Housed in Milk Studios, Social Studies NY builds from the success of last year’s Social

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.

Adidas is marking the 20th anniversary of Adam Sandler’s movie The Waterboy in the best way possible. The company has put together the Limited Edition SCLSU Capsule Collection to celebrate Bobby Boucher and the South Central Louisiana State University Mud Dogs.
The collection includes a Boucher jersey, an SCLSU hat, as well as an SCLSU football jacket. The collection will have patches marking the ‘Bourbon Bowl’ and the jersey will have Boucher’s name and number stitched across the back. The Waterboy has long been considered a sports movie classic, and now you’ll be able to show your love with some badass gear.
Here’s a look at what Adidas has put together:
The Waterboy is one of Sandler’s most popular films from his career, having made over $ 185 million at the box office on just a $ 23 million budget back in 1998. The film, which starred Sandler, Henry Winkler, Kathy Bates, Larry Gilliard Jr., and Fairuza Balk, had numerous cameo appearances from real-life football players and personalities, including Lawrence Taylor, Jimmy Johnson, Bill Cowher, Lee Corso, Chris Fowler, Brent Musburger, and Lynn Swann.
The movie followed Sandler’s titular waterboy Bobby Boucher as he found his way onto the field for the middling South Central Louisiana State University Mud Dogs as a fierce linebacker. Winkler starred in the film as Coach Klein, while Bates appeared as Boucher’s domineering mother.
Lines from the movie like “H20,” “Water sucks, it really, really sucks,” “There is something wrong with YOUR medulla oblongata,” and “I like Vicki, and she like me back! And she showed me her boobies and I like them too,” are considered some of the funniest and most memorable from Sandler’s career.
The hats have unique features taken from classic Nautica jackets, including patches, zippers, pockets, and labels, giving each set an authentic, vintage look. The three main styles include the New Era X Nautica Hydro Race Collection, New Era X Nautica Scuba Collection, and the New Era X Nautica Color Block Collection.
The hats and visors in each collection range from $ 40-$ 75, and are available at the New Era website, and at select Jimmy Jazz stores and on jimmyjazz.com.
Here’s a look at the New Era X Nautica collection:

Not only are we offering custom editions of MCM’s handbags and leather goods, we are offering an unexpected range of exclusive MCM product in collaboration with brands like Wilson, Everlast, Champion and New Era.

A hot and hilarious romantic comedy collection – perfect for fans of Lauren Blakely, Sophie Kinsella, and Julia Kent! Sexy Australian billionaire Grant Devlin is ruining my life. He exercises shirtless in his office, is notorious for his lunchtime hook-ups, he even yawns sexily. If I didn't need this job so bad, I'd take his black Amex and tell him where to swipe it.  He doesn't even know I exist, but why would he? He jets off to Paris with supermodels, I spend Friday nights with Netflix and a chunk of Pepperidge Farm frozen cake—waiting for his call. Because every time he crashes his yacht, or blows $ 500k on a single roulette spin in Monte Carlo, I’m the PR girl who has to clean up his mess.  But this time, it’s going to take more than just a fat charity donation. This time, the whole company is on the line. He needs to show investors that he’s settling down, and Step #1 is pretending to date a nice, stable girl until people forget about what happened with the Playboy Bunnies backstage at the Oscars.  My plan is perfect, except for one thing:  He picks me. PRAISE FOR THE BILLIONAIRE BARGAIN "It had me hooked and laughing from the first page!!! I just can't tell you how much I loved it. It was a wonderful, funny, passionate read !" Paige, Give Me Books "Holy hot Aussie billionaire romance! The Billionaire Bargain is raw, funny, witty, entertaining, and steamy . Grant Devlin, is a playboy CEO billionaire of Devlin Media Corp or as I like to say: sex on a stick …more like one hot tall blonde Aussie candy-coated stick!" Karen, Bookalicious Babes Blog "I really like this book. A Lot. Like a lot a lot. Lacey is one awesome chick and I love her. I fell in love with her in the first few pages of the book and then fell harder when she said Exactly What Was On Her Mind to Grant. I adore her." Heather, OwMyshelf

It was a long time coming: Madewell, a brand synonymous with great denim and well-made basics, has finally dropped a collection for guys. Cue the (deserved) fanfare.
To fashion history nerds, this isn’t necessarily a new venture. Madewell was originally a men’s workwear brand that started in 1937, though was repurposed as a women’s label in 2004. Finally, after two years of design, research and fine-tuning, the brand launched a menswear line that’s perfect for upgrading your wardrobe with some really well-designed and stylish staples.
The drop features plenty of denim (21 styles in three fits), tees and jackets. It’s available starting today both at Madewell and at Nordstrom. Check out our picks below.
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
The latest collaboration between Florsheim Shoes and Horween Leather Co. was a century in the making. The founders of both companies were longtime friends—they were even in each other’s weddings—and the brands have worked side by side for generations.
This newest collection’s classic silhouette and colors are an homage to both brand’s heritage. They’re also damn good-looking pairs of boots. Here’s the process of how the tried-and-true leather gets made.
The Horween Leather factory has been tanning leather in Chicago since 1905. Originally based on Goose Island, the fifth-generation company now operates out of a factory that dates back to the 1880s in Chicago’s Bucktown area. Here’s the process from start to finish.
After Horween receives leather from its suppliers via railcar—a staggering 600,000 to 700,000 heads of cattle per week—they’re put into mixers that burn the hair off the raw hides with an enzyme wash. This is called baiting, the step before the skins are tanned.
Behind a caged door lies the secret to the Florsheim collaboration’s beautiful leather: a cocktail of chrome (a mineral salt that provides strength and heat resistance) and other top-secret ingredients that make its leather strong and long-lasting. The factory also vegetable tans leather with tannins from tree bark. The processes are different, yet both yield beautiful leathers.
Inside the factory, you’ll find one-of-a-kind, often vintage devices—like this giant drum that gives the leather its signature color—that are used in the tanning process. From rawhide to tanned leather, the process takes around six months.
Each process involves a team of highly trained workers, many of whom have worked in the factory for more than a decade. However, their training can be intense. “If they’re still here after the first month, they’re usually here for life,” says Skip Horween, president of Horween Leather Co.
Employees lay the recently tanned hides onto a giant, multilevel dryer before inspection.
Above, the hides—which appear blue from the chrome cocktail—are measured for thickness and later sorted to be made into different products, from wallets to footwear to balls for every kind of sport.
This “staking” machine prods the leather with pins that move up and down to gauge the leather’s firmness, which ultimately decides which product it will be used to create.
Here, a worker inspects the leathers for holes and blemishes, which determine the grade of the leather. It’s then separated and moved onto processing.
Another worker marks each leather to determine where in the factory it will go next.
The factory also makes various suede and nubuck leathers using the inside of the leather, which is easier to process than traditional leathers because of its exposed “nap” or texture.
In addition to the leather used in the Florsheim boots, Horween also processes its famous shell Cordovan leather, which is made from the rump of horses and is extremely durable.
Even if you haven’t heard of Horween, odds are you own a football, basketball, or pair of high-quality boots or sneakers that were tanned in this facility.
Select hides are hand-sprayed with color for development before mass production. Above, this is a sample being made into white sneakers.
After coloring, the hides are hung to dry before being sent off to manufacturers like Florsheim for cutting and processing into shoes and small leather goods.
Stacks of various leather samples wait to be used for sales meetings and trade shows.
After being shipped to Florsheim’s factory, they’re cut and manufactured into the final Florsheim boots you see here. It’s a long, arduous process, but the result is a sleek, yet classic boot that’s durable and stylish.
The Florsheim Foundry Collection was made in limited quantities and is available now. [Florsheim Foundry Collection, $ 280; florsheim.com]

A new contemporary knitwear collection called DH, designed by future mother-in-law/daughter-in-law duo, Jane Miller Saltzman and Jodi Scherr will be carried by Saks Fifth Avenue this fall, along with a handful of specialty stores.
“My son fell in love with her, and I fell in love with her,” said Saltzman, whose son is marrying Scherr next June.
Saltzman, who has worked in merchandising for Design History, a contemporary firm started by her husband, Brad, who is founder and chief executive officer, and Scherr, whose background is in retail, decided to launch a collection together after getting to know each other. Saltzman said they would talk endlessly in the Hamptons about fashion and trends, what they loved and magazines they read. “She was the daughter I never had,” said Saltzman, who has two sons.
Jodi Scherr and Jane Miller Saltzman
“I always had this itch to be more on the creative side,” said Scherr, whose earlier roles were as an assistant buyer at Bergdorf Goodman for cosmetics, fragrances and sunglasses and an e-commerce merchandise assistant at Bloomingdale’s.
The fall collection features a curated selection of sweaters, tops and outerwear, combining femininity and classic minimalism with an edge.

TO THE GRINDSTONE: It’s still August, but Anya Hindmarch is already smelling the autumn leaves and freshly sharpened pencils with a back-to-school style capsule collection called Bags That Work, five styles for women who live to organize and compartmentalize.
The collection is a mix of cross-body and tote bags for day, including the Vere Satchel with its zip-flap front and multiple inside compartments; the Double Zipped Chain, a rectangular number made from a series of envelope-style pouches, and the Ebury Zipped Tote, made to fit a computer or iPad.
There’s also the Nevis Tote, which allows devices to be stored upright, and the Vere Tote, which features the same zip-flap front as its smaller namesake.
Bags can be customized by adding a charm — such as a mink fried egg, a chubby leather heart or a fuzzy pair of red cherries — or by changing the strap. Pockets inside the bags are labeled for phone, cards and coins.
“I love things that work — and deliver — and I find organization deeply exciting,” said Hindmarch, adding that these bags are meant for women who jump from cars to trains and planes, and who need to find their pens, phones, notepads or board minutes quickly.

Steve Aoki has snagged his newest fashion industry partnership.
The electronic dance music producer and DJ will become the watch ambassador for Diesel, serving as the face of the brand’s first transparency watch collection, which is launching today.
Last year, Aoki teamed with Asics to serve as a brand ambassador and footwear designer. This supplemented the Dim Mak fashion and lifestyle label he created more than a decade ago and his partnership in Vision Street Wear.
The deal with Diesel is intended to promote the new blue transparency watch line, the inspiration for which was drawn from the indigo dyeing of jeans, a hallmark of the brand. The new watch collection displays cream details on the dial that are inspired by the stitches used in denim, and cases and straps that fade from blue to crystal clear.
Andrea Rosso, creative director of licenses for Diesel and son of founder Renzo Rosso, said he’s known Aoki for a while and believes he and Diesel “have something in common. He never stops, he’s a manic guy; I’ve never met a guy who can do so much. And at Diesel, we never stop either. His style and his sense of aesthetic perfectly match the design and the clashing
