EXCLUSIVE: GCDS Debuts Beauty Range

MILAN — Italian streetwear brand GCDS is entering the beauty arena.
The company will unveil its GCDS Beauty line on its online store on Nov. 1, followed by the launch during the ComplexCon fair in Long Beach, Calif., this weekend.
Manufactured by Italian color cosmetics supplier Intercos, the first drop of cruelty-free products includes four lipsticks targeting a young and playful audience and retailing approximately at 22 euros each.
“These products are for me the purse essentials,” said designer Giuliano Calza, who founded the label in 2015 with his brother Giordano. Calza underscored he focused on developing a functional and interesting offering. “[My goal] is not to compete with the major beauty companies, I just wanted to deliver fun products to gift my people.”
This is reflected by the bold names and the ironic catch phrases related to each product, including the Hype transparent lip balm; the Blinghoe plumping lipstick with a sparkling pink finishing; the Marijuana 4:20 ph reagent green option turning into a natural cherry blush tint once applied on the lips and the Velvet D.I.C.K. red matte lipstick.

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

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

EXCLUSIVE: Givenchy to Return to Paris Men’s Wear Calendar in January

DIFFERENT STROKES: At least one major brand is battling the tide of coed shows.
After switching to joint women’s and men’s displays following the arrival of Clare Waight Keller as artistic director in 2017, Givenchy has decided to switch back to the men’s wear fashion calendar for the fall 2019 season, WWD has learned.
The French fashion house will stage a presentation on Jan. 16 during Paris Men’s Fashion Week, before returning to the runway in June, it said in a statement.
Waight Keller, whose coed spring collection was inspired by the gender-fluid style of Swiss writer Annemarie Schwarzenbach, will continue to show women and men side by side in her ready-to-wear and haute couture shows, the brand said. Her campaigns for the house have portrayed both genders in mirror-image pairs.
“Granting men’s wear a dedicated platform starting from January reflects the house’s support of Clare Waight Keller’s vision for the brand,” Givenchy said.
The move comes at a time when a growing number of brands are opting to present women’s and men’s wear at the same time. Celine and Maison Margiela staged their first coed shows this season, while brands including Stella McCartney, Balenciaga, Haider Ackermann and Sonia Rykiel featured models of both sexes

EXCLUSIVE: Tommy Hilfiger Shakes Things Up With Zendaya

Tommy Hilfiger is shaking it up.
Hilfiger, which is owned by PVH Corp., has tapped 22-year-old actress Zendaya, who recently starred in “Spiderman: Homecoming,” and “The Greatest Showman,” to be the new global women’s ambassador. She will be featured in the brand’s global integrated campaign beginning in spring 2019.
Furthering the designer’s commitment to expand its women’s businesses, Zendaya will collaborate with Hilfiger to create a Tommy x Zendaya capsule collection. The capsule will launch as a see-now-buy-now collection in February, at a location to be determined. The collaboration is for one season, with options to continue.
Hilfiger previously collaborated with Gigi Hadid on four capsule collections that were shown in New York (“Tommy Pier”), Los Angeles (“Tommyland”), London (“RockCircus”) and Milan (“Drive”). Using the see-now-buy-now format, the collaborations were highly successful for the firm and generated huge spikes in traffic and billions of social media impressions.

EXCLUSIVE: Thylane Blondeau Readies Fashion Line

FASHION FOCUS: Thylane Blondeau couldn’t find that perfect sweatshirt, so she decided to design her own. And that led to the 17-year-old French model and actress — a L’Oréal Paris brand ambassador — to conceive a full urban clothing line under the brand Heaven May (after her middle name), WWD has learned.
Blondeau’s followers — she has 2.4 million on Instagram alone — will be able to rock the look sold on her own site, heavenmay.com, starting Oct. 11.
“I have a lot of fans, and they’re always like: ‘Where did you buy this? Where did you find this?’” she said. “And I was like, everything they like I am going to do it for them and for me.
“I wanted to do my own brand, my own thing,” she continued. “I love clothes.”
Her first sweatshirt was black, with her label’s logo on the back. “Then I did pants, and after had to do socks and shoes — everything,” explained Blondeau.
Comfort was key. One sweatshirt has a hood that can be zipped up over the wearer’s head. “So I can hide my face — you know, when you are sleeping on the plane,” said Blondeau, who has been working with Paris-based designers, sending

PICTURE PERFECT: Kaia Gerber has been named the new YSL Beauté makeup ambassador, WWD has learned.
“To be the new face of YSL Beauté is an opportunity to write a new story full of fun, color and makeup,” the model said. “I love the DNA of a brand that is so subversive, while being so luxurious and cool.”

EXCLUSIVE: LVMH Taps Designer to Revive Jean Patou

PARIS — LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton is applying its formidable finances and management might to revive the dormant Jean Patou fashion house, WWD has learned.
Sidney Toledano, chairman and chief executive officer of LVMH Fashion Group, is spearheading the project and has already selected and signed on a designer to lead it: Guillaume Henry.
Last March, Henry exited Nina Ricci and he is said to be passionate about the legacy of Patou, a French designer who brought modernity and buzz to fashion in the Twenties — and innovated in business with fragrances, logos and sport clothes.
LVMH is now in the throes of building teams around Henry with a view to launching the first collection of ready-to-wear and accessories in the second half of 2019.
It is understood the group views Patou as something of a niche, rarified name — and not its next megabrand. Consequently, LVMH will likely start with a single boutique, most likely in Paris, along with e-commerce and select wholesale partners.
The relaunch suggests the world’s largest luxury group is anticipating an easing of the streetwear craze, and a swing of the fashion pendulum back to sophisticated chic.

EXCLUSIVE: Meet the Bag That Is Launching Hedi Slimane’s Celine Reboot

PARIS — When Hedi Slimane joined Celine in February, the first thing he did was design a new bag.
It was a smart move, considering accessories make up an estimated 65 percent of the brand’s revenues and its owner, French luxury titan Bernard Arnault, had touted the arrival of the “global superstar” designer as heralding a doubling or tripling of Celine’s turnover within five years.
Fortunately, creating accessories is an exercise Slimane relishes. The designer, who previously drove skyrocketing sales at Saint Laurent and Dior Homme, named his debut Celine creation the 16, after the location of the brand’s headquarters and atelier in a 17th-century mansion at 16 Rue Vivienne here.
Marking the house’s first official comment on the Slimane era, Séverine Merle, chief executive officer of Celine, discussed the linchpin launch exclusively with WWD. “The 16 handbag is the ultimate symbol of Hedi Slimane’s vision for Celine: it emphasizes our knowledge of incredible craftsmanship,” she said.
The French house, which has shut down its e-commerce site in the countdown to Slimane’s debut show on Sept. 28, plans to unveil a redesigned platform in early October carrying a capsule of Slimane’s new collection for women and men, alongside a selection of current season merchandise,

EXCLUSIVE: Johanna Senyk Presents Françoise

PARIS — Meet Françoise, the new solo act of Johanna Senyk, who has decided to put Wanda Nylon on hold for personal reasons.
For her new venture, Senyk has partnered with the Mantova, Italy-based manufacturer Castor Srl to develop, produce and distribute the women’s collection. The bags are licensed to Italy’s Siloe, which produces leather goods for a number of leading luxury brands.
“When I met the all-woman team behind Castor, we hit it off immediately,” Senyk told WWD. The designer, who scooped the main ANDAM prize in 2016 with Wanda Nylon, also read the fact that Castor had produced Martin Margiela’s collections around the time he won the ANDAM award in 1989 as “a sign.”

Senyk said the aim was to combine old school Italian know-how with French taste. For the new brand, she dreamt up an imaginary character, based on the idea of an ultrasophisticated French woman who is more into creating her own look than following trends.
“She’s not too young, she’s a working girl who buys her clothes with the money she owns, she drives, she’s free. She is extremely feminine — she would never wear a fanny pack, even if they were in. She likes appropriating masculine

EXCLUSIVE: Dior to Stage First Men’s Pre-Fall Runway Show in Tokyo

PARIS — In the latest sign that Dior is beefing up its men’s business, the French fashion house plans to stage its first men’s pre-fall runway show with a collection designed by Kim Jones scheduled to bow in Tokyo on Nov. 30, WWD has learned exclusively.
The choice of location reflects not just the brand’s long-term relationship with the country, but also the British designer’s fondness for Japan and the strategic importance of the Asian market.
The show will coincide with a Dior men’s pop-up at department store Isetan in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district, set to open on Nov. 28 for two weeks, that will carry the first collection designed by Jones. The capsule line for summer 2019 will simultaneously go on sale at the Dior flagship in Ginza ahead of its global launch on Dec. 1.
Jones told WWD in July the capsule would include denim pieces embroidered with Dior’s signature bee, as reimagined by U.S. artist Kaws, whose real name is Brian Donnelly, who also designed a monumental floral sculpture for the designer’s debut Dior show in Paris in July.
The spring collection featured new accessories, including a men’s version of the Saddle bag; belts with a stylized CD buckle created by Matthew

It caps the sports brand’s Suede 50 program of collaborations marking the 50th anniversary of its original Suede sneaker. While originally focused on the shoe, the project grew into a 13-piece capsule fusing the brands’ respective codes.
Items include a women’s cropped T-shirt and jumpsuit based on Puma’s archive T7 tracksuit with 7-mm. stripes. Men’s pieces include a slim-fit hoodie with matching sweatpants and logo T-shirts.

EXCLUSIVE: Cartier to Unveil Precious Garage Concept at New York Fashion Week

Cartier will unveil its Precious Garage concept during New York Fashion Week, an installation done for the French jeweler by New York-based artist Desi Santiago.
The installation will usher in new iterations of the brand’s Juste un Clou and Écrou de Cartier collections, beginning with a party on Sept. 6 at Cartier’s Fifth Avenue mansion hosted by Mercedes Abramo, president and chief executive officer of Cartier North America, and Bernadette Hitt, director of the Cartier mansion.
Santiago has made a name for himself bridging art and fashion, staging performance and installation-based exhibitions at New York’s MoMa PS-1 and Art Basel Miami. He previously collaborated with the iconic French jeweler on a project at Salone del Mobile in Milan last year.
The Juste un Clou was created in the Seventies by Cartier designer Aldo Cipullo in New York. Using his concept of hardware as jewelry, Cipullo first created the Love Bracelet, and later the Juste un Clou, which reconceptualizes a nail as a piece of jewelry. In 2017, the brand reimagined Cipullo’s hardware concept with the Ecrou de Cartier, which interprets the head of a nut and screw as a bracelet and ring.

EXCLUSIVE: Jennifer Lawrence to Front New Dior Perfume

FRAGRANCE FACE: Jennifer Lawrence will front Dior’s next perfume, due out later this year, WWD has learned.
The American actress was tapped by the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned house as a celebrity face and ambassador on the fashion side in 2012, and her first handbag campaign for Dior broke in 2013.
Subsequently, Lawrence has appeared in many ads for the brand, including — on the beauty front — the campaign for Dior Addict Lipstick in 2015. Along with other house ambassadors, the actress also last year appeared in Dior’s charitable initiative, called the Dior Love Chain.
In a statement, the house called the new scent by Dior perfumer-creator François Demachy “an unprecedented fragrance and a powerful universe which mark the beginning of a new era for fragrance at the house of Dior.”
There were no further details available about the upcoming perfume. The last time the brand launched a major fragrance pillar was in 1999, with J’Adore.
Lawrence most recently appeared in the psychological horror movie “Mother!” and spy thriller “Red Sparrow.”
In 2016, the actress received her fourth Academy Award nomination and third Golden Globe award for her performance in “Joy,” by David O. Russell. She’d formerly worked with him on “American Hustle” and

EXCLUSIVE: Faith Connexion Taps Swizz Beatz for Capsule Collection

THE BEAT GOES ON: Faith Connexion and Swizz Beatz are making things official.
The rapper, DJ and producer, who has long been a fan of the collaborative label, has designed a capsule collection of 11 pieces that will be shown at the brand’s spring 2019 presentation in Paris on June 21, and hit stores this fall.
The items, which include hoodies, T-shirts, tracksuits and leather jackets, feature art by Nina Chanel Abney. Swizz Beatz collects works by the African-American artist, who explores race, gender, pop culture and politics in her brightly colored paintings, watercolors and collages.
“I love being partners with Faith because it’s the brand of freedom and the future. It’s also an honor to be working with the amazing Nina Chanel, who is a true artist in every form,” he said in a statement.
Faith Connexion president Maria Buccellati noted the tie-up was part of a long tradition of bringing together “creative souls” at the label, which has previously worked with influencer Sita Abellan, street artists Vincent Dacquin and Pisco Logik, and brands including Disney, Kappa and K-Way, among others.

Net-a-porter on Keeping Exclusive Capsules Actually Exclusive

CAPSULE CRAZY–Another day, another “exclusive” capsule collection. If that adjective fails to excite any longer, you’d be joining a growing set of voices in that view.
Conscious of consumer fatigue and a saturation point for limited edition products, Net-a-porter is trying to reinvent the future of an exclusive capsule.
Calling it “a work in progress”,  Elizabeth von der Goltz, global buying director for Net-a-porter said, “We’ve done them for such a long time. All of them almost have to be brands–we can’t say we don’t [let them]–but we like to be the only retailer you’re doing an exclusive collection for the year.”
She continued: “We’re seeing so much out there it’s getting a bit noisy to keep it really special. Every design needs to be unique and different. It’s not just a coloration, it [needs to be] different from the past seasons,” she said.
Since von der Goltz joined Net-a-porter, collaboration highlights include the debut of a Balenciaga collection, the Fendi logo project and securing a role as Kith’s exclusive online retail partner for women’s.
“There’s so much competition than when [Net-a-porter] started,” von der Goltz said. “The number one focus is to offer the best curation, the best edit, and in the markets that we’re strong,

EXCLUSIVE: Beltology Unveils Collaboration With André Saraiva

Start-up accessory brand Beltology is taking things up a notch as they launch their first collaboration with graffiti artist and sometimes restaurateur and nightlife impresario, André Saraiva. The limited-edition collection, Beltology x André, launches exclusively in Barneys New York’s retail locations and online June 2 during the retailer’s thedropLA@barneys events.
Beltology founders Andrew Heffernan and Anna Lundberg were local fans of Saraiva’s now shuttered Café Henri in New York when they approached him with the idea.
“We were looking to collaborate, but we thought he might be too big for our brand. But when we started telling him our brand’s story and talking we could see that he represents so many things we want our brand to represent: colorful, fun and carefree, plus he is so incredibly charming,” Heffernan explained.
The result is a limited-edition capsule collection of five new colorways of Beltology’s signature stretch woven belts, each belt has a pin with custom artwork by Saraiva and features a leather-wrapped buckle and foil stamp of his graffiti artist alter-ego “Mr. A.”

“I found my perfect belt many years ago in Paris and I always wanted to design my own in that style. My girlfriends always used to steal mine,” Saraiva lamented. He noted

EXCLUSIVE: Proenza Schouler Teams With Lancôme on Makeup Range

COLOR COLLABORATION: Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are teaming with Lancôme on a limited-edition makeup collection for fall, due out in July, WWD has learned.
The duo, whose fashion has been inspired by painters such as Carmen Herrera and Ellsworth Kelly, with distinctive approaches to color, was given carte blanche for their makeup creations.
“Lancôme has always represented the epitome of luxury beauty products, so it is like a dream come true to be able to collaborate with such an iconic and historic brand,” the duo said jointly in a statement.
Françoise Lehmann, general manager of Lancôme international, called Proenza Schouler fashion “the manifesto of a strong, free femininity. The idea of ‘empowerment’ is at the heart of their values, just as it has always been at the heart of the Lancôme philosophy.”
Proenza Schouler is the latest in a number of designer collaborations for Lancôme, which has worked on capsule color cosmetics lines with Olympia Le-Tan, Sonia Rykiel, Anthony Vaccarello, Jacquemus and Alber Elbaz — among others — in the past.
Proenza Schouler’s fragrance business is licensed to L’Oréal, also the owner of Lancôme.

God of Sales: Kratos’ New Adventure Is Fastest Selling PS4 Exclusive Ever

God of War

Source: PlayStation/Sony Santa Monica / PlayStation/Sony Santa Monica

God of War is not even a month old, and it’s already in a class by itself. Since it’s April 20th release, Kratos’ father & son adventure has moved more units than any other PS4 exclusive in just three days.

Sony announced today in a blog post that God of War sold an insane 3.1 million copies just three days after its release. That number puts it miles ahead of other successful PS4 exclusives such as Uncharted 4 (2.7 million in a week), Horizon Zero Dawn (2.6 million in two weeks) and The Last of Us (3.4 million in three weeks on PS3).

That is indeed astonishing in such a short period, and while the game would have sold regardless, it’s a good bet to believe word of mouth, perfect scores and highly-positive reviews helped. Head of Sony Santa Monica studio, Shannon Studstill had this to say about  game’s fantastic achievement:

“I would like to personally thank the millions of fans around the world who decided to embark on Kratos’ latest adventure with us. Your support is truly inspiring, and it’s a reason why we push ourselves every day to go beyond the boundaries of play. I’d also like to thank our Creative Director, Cory Barlog, and Director of Product Development, Yumi Yang and our entire amazing team at Santa Monica Studio. The belief in the game’s vision and the passion for storytelling across the team is undeniable. We look forward to hearing more about how fans are creating new memories of their favorite God of War gameplay moments that will be remembered for a long time.”

God of War already has critics calling it game of the year, and some are even saying it could be the g.o.a.t when it comes to video games. It’s clear the game meant a lot to the studio, God of War’s creative director Cory Barlog couldn’t hold back the tears while reading reviews of the game. If you haven’t picked up a PlayStation 4 yet, God of War is a damn good reason to do so right now.

EXCLUSIVE: Aquazzura to Launch Men’s Line, Lifestyle-Oriented Concept

DUBAI — Edgardo Osorio, creator of the luxury footwear brand Aquazzura, has big plans for his company. Here to celebrate the opening of his flagship in the region, he revealed that he aims to launch a men’s line within the next 18 months.
“It’s going to be modern, elegant leisure,” said Osorio. “I expect at least 50 percent will be sneakers. But sneakers you can wear to the office with a suit.”
Osorio said there is a gap in the market for men’s. “Men’s right now is either too fashion or too conservative; there isn’t a lot in between. As a man who travels for work all over the world, I find it difficult to find things I like. I end up getting one thing here, one thing there. But generally men don’t shop like that. They prefer a one-stop shop.” Osorio is confident he can fill that need. “If you have a brand that offers modern shoes at a competitive price point that feel comfortable and are young and have that elegance to them in a casual way, that will be a winning element.”
He said the brand also plans to launch a more “lifestyle-oriented project.” This, he said, will take priority over

EXCLUSIVE: Porsche Design Fetes 40th Anniversary With a Special-edition Sunglass

Porsche Design is commemorating the 40th anniversary of its aviator sunglasses with a special-edition frame launching in mid April. The P’8478, as the aviator sunglasses are known, were the first frame on the market to provide an interchangeable lenses mechanism and the design has been left unchanged since.
“For the 40th anniversary edition of the P’8478 sunglasses, our designers at Studio FA Porsche wanted to make something special, but they didn’t want to compromise the well-known iconic design. Therefore we decided to implement a bi-color design — the first time we’ve done this to the P’8478. Previously, the frame and its hardware always matched,” said Karsten von Engeln, chief operating officer of Porsche Design of America. “Additionally, we decided to launch this edition accompanied by our three best-selling lenses from the past 40 years.”
The new special edition frame is made with a matte-black titanium frame, gradient gray lenses and gold nose-bridge. The frames come with four different pairs of lenses, a special travel case and are available in two sizes, each limited to 1,978 pairs to correlate with the 1978 release date.
“Sunglasses are one of our biggest categories,” Engeln said. “It’s very important to the business. We work very closely with Rodenstock

EXCLUSIVE: Kaia Gerber Designs Capsule Collection With Karl Lagerfeld

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

EXCLUSIVE: Maison Margiela to Present First Men’s Collection Under John Galliano

MAN UP: With Paris Men’s Fashion Week set to kick off Tuesday, management at Maison Margiela has confirmed that the house on Friday will present the first men’s collection entirely created and developed under the direction of John Galliano.
The show will take place in the Salle Turenne of the Musée de l’Armée in the Hôtel des Invalides, a complex of buildings in the city’s 7th arrondissement containing museums and monuments relating to the military history of France.
Since joining the OTB-owned house in October 2014, Galliano has had no official involvement in the men’s collection, according to Riccardo Bellini, the house’s chief executive officer. It’s been a step-by-step process for the designer.
“Creating a new aesthetic language rooted in the maison’s couture spirit has always been at the core of Mr. Galliano’s creative vision for the future of the house. Rather than curating the past we have chosen to look at the future and John Galliano’s vision represents a forward-thinking view on the maison and its DNA,” he said. “This collection will offer an elevated and powerful new foundation for men’s wear, strongly positioned within the luxury arena.”
For men’s, the brand counts about 60 direct stores and around 400 multibrand and department stores worldwide.

EXCLUSIVE: Model Christopher Cates Pens Letter Calling for Action Against Harassment

As the uproar continues over sexual harassment in industries stretching from entertainment to media to finance, the fashion world has remained relatively on the sidelines – until now.
On Saturday, The New York Times published a long-rumored story about alleged harassment of male models by the photographers Bruce Weber and Mario Testino. Both men, via statements their lawyers gave to the Times, vigorously denied the allegations made in the story, although Conde Nast and Conde Nast International both said Saturday that they would be severing ties with the two photographers – at least for now.
The Times’ story comes several months after model Cameron Russell created an Instagram account on which anonymous individuals posted stories about their mistreatment in the industry. Last October, Terry Richardson was dropped by the leading fashion magazine publishers but only after years of allegations surrounding his behavior, while model Jason Boyce filed a lawsuit against Weber in December claiming the photographer harassed him. Weber has denied those claims, as well.
In November, 27-year-old British model Edie Campbell penned an exclusive letter for WWD to the fashion industry in which she said, “We operate within a culture that is too accepting of abuse, in all of its manifestations,” going

EXCLUSIVE: Stella McCartney Takes the Plunge Into Men’s Swimwear

STAR OF THE SEA: Stella McCartney is plunging into men’s swimwear with a debut collection that launches Tuesday in partnership ISA SpA, the Italian textile manufacturer, WWD has learned.
Animal and tropical prints — including a jaunty parrot one — from the ready-to-wear collection, star embroidery and a geometric pattern have been cast onto boxers, briefs, rash guards, cover-ups, towels and sustainable beach totes made in Kenya. The color palette includes lavender, yellow, blush pink and bottle green for the organic cotton and recycled nylon fabrics.
McCartney said because she designs swimwear for women, it was only right that she should do the same for men, and that launching the collection felt like a natural progression.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to broaden the men’s collection. I wanted to explore an area of a man’s wardrobe that is important and is perhaps slightly under-designed at times. And I wanted to bring the personality of the man into swimwear, so the relationship of the man and the woman on the beach has consistency.”
The collection will drop at the designer’s boutiques and on her web site and will also be stocked at stores including Harrods, Matchesfashion.com and Mr Porter. Prices range from 155 pounds to 255 pounds for

EXCLUSIVE: Karl Lagerfeld Inks Denim License With Italy’s Giada SpA

PARIS — Karl Lagerfeld, who has been partial to skinny jeans for more than a decade, is getting his own denim line.
The fashion brand has inked a multiyear license agreement with Italy’s Giada SpA for the production and distribution of its new Karl Lagerfeld Denim collection in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The first collection for men and women is to debut at retail in spring 2019.
“The launch of Karl Lagerfeld Denim is an exciting, high-potential addition to our brand’s diverse product portfolio,” said Pier Paolo Righi, chief executive officer of Karl Lagerfeld. He called Giada a “leading producer and marketer of premium denim production, and we are fascinated by their love for product details. We look forward to working with them to build this business.”
The development comes as the brand is preparing to unveil its revamped men’s wear collection at the Pitto Uomo trade show this week.
The Lagerfeld and Karl Lagerfeld labels have been fused under a single Karl Lagerfeld collection, which is being presented alongside a capsule line curated by the designer’s longtime personal assistant Sébastien Jondeau, as reported.

EXCLUSIVE: Winona Ryder Named L’Oréal Paris Brand Ambassador

L’Oréal Paris has tapped Winona Ryder to appear in a campaign tied to a massive rebrand of its U.S. hair business, WWD has exclusively learned.
A “robust, 360-campaign” comprising digital, social, TV and print advertising is set to launch Sunday during the Golden Globes with a TV commercial featuring Ryder, said Anne Marie Nelson-Bogle, senior vice president of marketing at L’Oréal Paris.
Titled “The Comeback,” the campaign is tied to the repositioning of the majority of the L’Oréal Paris hair-care products, including shampoos, conditioners and treatments, plus a few new products, under a new franchise called Elvive.
The Elvive platform focuses on damage prevention, a message L’Oréal is hoping U.S. consumers — fond of curling irons, blowouts, dry shampoo and bleach — will relate to. L’Oréal research found that eight in 10 women in the U.S. have damaged hair — and 18- to 34-year-olds in particular overindex in hot-tool-related damage.
“Everyone does love a comeback, and we will be communicating that damaged hair deserves one, too,” said Nelson-Bogle of the new campaign. “For Winona, we know that from TV sets to the red carpet, her hair has gone through many transformations — her hair is dry and damaged.”

Titled “Yo! My Saint,” the track will be released on Jan. 12 across more than 50 streaming services including Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Pandora, Deezer and Google Play Music. A companion limited-edition vinyl is to go on sale on Jan. 22 in Kenzo stores and online.
While championing female talent is nothing new for Kenzo creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the project marks the first time the label has released an original song. Others brands which have produced music include Burberry, which supports British artists via its Burberry Acoustic initiative, and Kitsuné, which has its own record label.

MAN UP: The dates and times are yet to be confirmed, but the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode on Monday released the list of new additions to the official runway schedule for Paris Men’s Fashion Week in January, with Vetements among the headlining acts.
As reported, the maverick fashion label plans to stage its next coed show — for the fall 2018 season — on Jan. 19 in the French capital. Other names joining the official lineup include France’s Nïuku, Germany’s GmbH, Sweden’s Acne Studios and Britain’s Dunhill London, which in June presented the debut collection from ex-Burberry alum and new creative director Mark Weston on its home turf.
His approach may be full-on gender fluid, but Palomo Spain’s Alejandro Gomez Palomo will also be joining the men’s runway ranks this season. Off-White will be returning to Paris after showing in Florence in June as a special guest of the 92nd edition of international men’s wear trade show Pitti Uomo.
New highlights on the official presentation lineup, meanwhile, include Myar, the solo project of Andrea Rosso, son of entrepreneur Renzo Rosso and the creative director of Diesel licenses, as well as cult Japanese label Takahiromiyashita the Soloist, which earlier

The 38-year-old studied architecture at Cornell University and has 17 years of experience, including positions as design director of rtw and accessories at Narciso Rodriguez and director of design at J.Mendel. He has also held positions at Loewe and Tse.

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

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

EXCLUSIVE: Lacoste Rolls Out New Store Concept

PARIS — Lacoste is angling for an upscale, sporty feel for its new store concept, carving out room for faster-growing categories likes shoes and accessories.
The new stores also emphasize the label’s trademark polo with a wall dedicated to the shirts as the company doubles down on its roots, reflecting its strategy for an e-commerce era.
As brands jockey for attention from today’s highly solicited consumer, many are refashioning physical stores as streamlined showcases meant to project the identity of a brand while offering a larger selection of products online.
Lacoste chief executive officer Thierry Guibert, who set teams to work drawing up the new concept around 18 months ago, launched the redesign project with the idea that customers should be able to see they’re in a Lacoste store before even exploring the merchandise.
“When you entered the stores, they looked nice but you couldn’t tell it was Lacoste,” said Guibert, of the previous model. He has opened two of the new stores in London and Paris, with a third slated to open in November in Los Angeles.
The wall of polo shirts in the first redesigned Paris store comes with its own section, featuring a tall counter meant for inspecting and folding the shirts,

EXCLUSIVE: Chanel Sets Pharrell Williams Sneaker Collaboration for Colette Pop-up

PARIS — Karl Lagerfeld’s parting gift to Colette, the store that has counted him as its number-one customer for two decades, couldn’t be more fitting: a red-hot sneaker collaboration.
As part of its monthlong takeover of the concept store’s first floor, Chanel will launch an Adidas Hu NMD shoe specially customized by Pharrell Williams for the house. Further stoking anticipation, it has yet to release an image of the design, though unofficial photos have been circulating on streetwear feeds.
The music star is featured in the advertising campaign for Chanel’s Gabrielle bag, has walked the runway for the brand and once composed a song for a Lagerfeld-directed Chanel film, but this marks the first time Williams has designed a product for the label.
Other exclusives include limited-edition T-shirts designed by Lagerfeld, creative director of Chanel since 1983, and a music compilation by Michel Gaubert, who designs the soundtracks for its runway shows.
Chanel will take up residency at Colette from Oct. 30 to Nov. 25, and the store will close its doors for good on Dec. 20.
Inspired by Lagerfeld’s Antiquity-themed cruise collection, the decor of its pop-up will consist of a backdrop of draped ecru canvas punctuated by Plexiglas niches showcasing ready-to-wear and accessories.

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.
Abellan’s previous collaborations include a capsule with Misbhv

EXCLUSIVE: Karl Lagerfeld’s Suitcase Among Stars of Rimowa Campaign

PARIS — Rimowa is celebrating the 80th anniversary of its signature aluminum suitcase with a campaign featuring the luggage of personalities ranging from Karl Lagerfeld to Martha Stewart, in the first visible sign of its new strategy since being taken over by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
The campaign, set to launch across social media platforms today, was devised at the initiative of Alexandre Arnault — the son of LVMH chairman and chief executive officer Bernard Arnault — who joined the German luggage-maker as joint ceo earlier this year.
The young executive has revamped the Rimowa team, appointing Hector Muelas as chief brand officer in June. Muelas previously worked at Donna Karan International and at Apple, where he led the global brand marketing initiatives for Apple Watch.
The campaign will feature images of the cases set on a white pedestal, shot by German photographer Frank Hülsbömer, alongside quotes from their owners on how travel has “given them character and helped shape their identity,” the brand said. The only exception is Lagerfeld’s case, which the designer shot himself.
“Our suitcases have always been powerful vehicles for storytelling. Aluminum has a lot to do with it because it’s an organic material that evolves together with the traveler. We thought it’d

EXCLUSIVE: Guy Laroche Appoints Richard René as Creative Director

PARIS — Guy Laroche has joined the ranks of brands switching designers, WWD has learned.
Richard René, a veteran of brands including Hermès and Jean Paul Gaultier, has taken the helm of the label and is slated to show his first collection on Sept. 27 during Paris Fashion Week. He succeeds American designer Adam Andrascik, who had held the post since 2015.
This follows recent changes in creative direction at Lanvin, Givenchy and Chloé — all of whom will be presenting collections by new creative directors in the fall.
“I grew up with the house of Guy Laroche symbolizing for me a kind of luxury and liberty. Guy Laroche was a bold fashion designer, a forerunner and he lived in a very liberated manner, just like the women he dressed. This is the spirit I would like to trigger again and that seems to matter more than ever today,” René said.
The designer, who since 2014 had been creative director of French luxury swimwear brand Vilebrequin, said he looked forward to turning his hand again to women’s ready-to-wear. René, who produced a collection under his own name between 2004 and 2010, is known for his mix of minimalism and irreverence.

Actor Shawn Yue will appear as the first local brand ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger men’s wear in China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan for fall 2017 and spring 2018.
The exclusive partnership reflects Hilfiger’s continued commitment to expand in Asia, its fastest-growing region. The campaign goes live Friday.
“We’ve seen exciting growth in both the overall business and brand awareness in China over the past few years. Our partnership with Shawn will solidify our position in the market and introduce our men’s wear business to a new consumer,” Tommy Hilfiger said Wednesday.

Natalia Vodianova’s star-studded annual Fabulous Fund Fair is coming for New York.
Vodianova’s Naked Heart Foundation will throw its fourth annual Fabulous Fund Fair this October, and for the first time the charitable bash will be held in New York. AmfAR is a first-time partner with the Naked Heart Foundation for the Halloween-themed event, which will take place on Oct. 28.

Exclusive: Ralph Lauren’s Major Move for New York Fashion Week

Ralph Lauren is capable of doing big things. In the lead-up to a New York Fashion Week season that has been fraught with controversial defections of major talent, Lauren, a true blue American designer if there ever was one, is staying put (relatively) and stepping it up. He will stage his September runway show Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. at Ralph’s Garage in Bedford, N.Y., with a private formal dinner to follow the show.
The venue is Lauren’s private garage housing his collection of rare automobiles, which will be the backdrop for the show. It’s one of the most valuable car collections in the world, featuring models such as a 1938 Bugatti Atlantic, a 1929 Bentley Blower, an orange 1996 McLaren F1 LM and multiple vintage red Ferraris. In 2011, 17 cars from Lauren’s collection were shown in an exhibition at the Musée Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
To accent the masculine/feminine nature of automobile design, for the first time Lauren will also show the Ralph Lauren Purple Label men’s wear alongside the women’s collection. The show will continue the see-now-buy-now strategy that the company started a year prior — all looks from the show will be available immediately to consumers globally.

EXCLUSIVE: Tomas Maier Taps Laurent Claquin as CEO

NEW YORK — Tomas Maier has a new chief executive officer for his signature brand — and he’s already a high-profile executive at parent company Kering, WWD has learned.
Laurent Claquin, who will continue to head Kering Americas, takes on his additional responsibilities at Tomas Maier, effective today.
He reports to Jean-François Palus, Kering’s group managing director, and succeeds Giuseppe Giovannetti, who left the French conglomerate last week. Giovannetti’s next move could not immediately be learned.
Claquin joins the German-born designer at a busy time for his signature fashion house.
Maier recently rejiggered his boutique in Greenwich Village here into the brand’s first men’s-only flagship, and relaunched his e-commerce business through a partnership with Farfetch.
There are four other Tomas Maier stores selling men’s and women’s in the U.S. — Madison Avenue and East Hampton in New York and Bal Harbour and Palm Beach in Florida. The designer is mulling another men’s-only unit for Tokyo.
Maier, who has also served as the creative director of Bottega Veneta since 2001, founded his own brand in 1997. He entered into a venture with Kering three years ago, a move that allowed his label to expand its offering into a full lifestyle collection.
At present, 55 percent of the Maier business

LONDON — Jonathan Anderson was thinking “universal and quirky,” for the first J.W. Anderson collaboration with Uniqlo, a mash-up of urban, collegiate and military-inspired looks and basics in oversized proportions, tartan and stripes.
The 33-piece collection for Uniqlo’s LifeWear, which was first revealed in March, will launch on September 19 in the U.K., followed by other markets. The collection is for men and women with pieces including a duffle coat, an oversized striped turtleneck with ties around the wrists, a crewneck sweater with an abstract fish floating across the front, a tartan down jacket and a matching padded tote.

Doing something with Uniqlo means you come up with a wardrobe which is universal and quirky.”

EXCLUSIVE: Tony The Tiger Victim Of Food Terrorist Plot?

Is someone kidding around with beloved breakfast cereal mascot Tony the Tiger with a series of viral videos showing him helping a sex worker, a suicide bomber and a police officer who savagely beats a female suspect?

Or is a food terrorist trying to commit a cereal killing by making Tony look bad?

Kellogg Co. said it had nothing to do with what it called “offensive” videos posted this week showing its Frosted Flakes mascot behaving badly. Evidence uncovered by The Huffington Post suggests a well-known food activist, Jani Leinonen, may be involved.

The latest video shows a battered woman named Anna seated inside a California cafe.

“Last night I experienced the worst physical abuse of my life, for no reason,” reads a description of the video at tonyisback.com. “I feel so humiliated, betrayed, my whole body is aching. I am angry but I have not found the courage to fight back. I was so lost, but Tony came and encouraged me to go ahead with my plan to show people.”

Tony the Tiger, in the video, encourages Anna to go through with her “plan” by eating a bowl of sugary Frosted Flakes — “They’re grrrrreat,” he says in his trademark shout.

After eating a bit of the cereal, Anna stands up and shows she has a bomb strapped to her chest, which detonates as the video ends.

Actress Gina Ferranti shared a video still shot from the film on Instagram, The Huffington Post’s investigation shows. Ferranti lists the role on her acting resume, which identifies the director and production company responsible for “Tony.”

Ferranti, through her agent, declined to comment. The “Tony” listing on her resume was removed Friday night, after this article was published.

Ferranti’s resume identified the “Tony” director as Jani Leinonen, an artist from Finland who has been linked to a group of health-food activists called the Food Liberation Army.

The organization was responsible for the Jan. 31, 2010, theft of a life-size Ronald McDonald statue from a McDonald’s fast food restaurant in central Helsinki, according to NPR.org. The kidnappers threatened to decapitate Ronald unless McDonald’s answered questions about the quality of its food and its work ethics. Finnish police identified Leinonen as a suspect and  jailed him for 30 hours, according to a report on the art news website we-make-money-not-art.com.

Leinonen didn’t respond to a request for comment from HuffPost on Friday.

In her resume, Ferranti identified the company that filmed “Tony” as Route 1, a Los Angeles-based firm that provides production services. 

Route 1’s website says the company has worked with a number of well-known corporations, including Kellogg. Route 1’s show reel includes two commercials for Kellogg’s Special K products. The website was taken down after this article was published.

Route 1 recently shared a photo on its Facebook page that shows its ”amazing crew” with Jani Leinonen at the Malibu Pier.

“Thank you Tero, Jani, Anti, and Jani #2 for trusting us with your amazing project,” the post reads.

Route 1 says on Twitter it is a “sister company” of First Breath Films, which boasted of its “controversial” new films in a May 22 Facebook post: 

Route 1 responded to a HuffPost query on Facebook. An unnamed person wrote to say “my boss said to tell you” that Route 1 is a “service company” hired by artists and production companies and has “no say or input into the content in any way.”

Jason Lehel of First Breath Films on Friday night said his company “has nothing to do with the Tony shoot.”

A Kellogg spokesperson, who replied to questions without providing a name, said Friday that the company has no relationship with Leinonen, but didn’t say whether it had worked with Route 1.

“As a company grounded in the values of integrity and respect, we recognize people’s right to creative expression,” the Kellogg spokesperson said in an email. “We also believe these videos are offensive and make light of serious issues that deserve real dialogue. Tony is a beloved icon and we will protect the integrity of our brands and our characters.”

This article has been updated to include comments from Route 1 and First Breath Films and to note that the listing for the “Tony” video on Ferranti’s online resume and the Route 1 website both were taken down Friday night.

EXCLUSIVE: Crooked I Criticizes Black Rappers For Being Afraid To Talk About Social Issues (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) With police brutality being a national news story for over a year and the 2016 presidential campaign dominating coverage, some Hip Hop artists have used their status to address social/political issues. According to Kxng Crooked I, more rappers need to step up and speak on the things taking place in America today.

“I just hate the way that Black rappers are scared to talk about what’s going on in America,” said Crooked. “They’re so tune into syrup, pills, weed, cars, women. If you take those subject matters away from them, they don’t rap about sh*t.”

The Slaughterhouse member also mentioned he is thinking about no longer using the word “n*gga.” In Crooked’s view, non-Black people are over abusing the n-word.

“When I say I don’t think you should say that, they say ‘well, you say it’.’ You Know what? I have to give some kind of credit to that comment,” explained Crooked.

(AllHipHop News) Battle rap royalty will be on hand at the upcoming Keith Murray vs Fredro Starr lyrical contest. After it was announced Murda Mook will be on the stage that night, fellow legendary battler Loaded Lux has been named as a host of MC War’s “Generation X” as well.

In an exclusive interview, Lux was asked for his thoughts on the two veteran song makers’ decision to step into the battle arena. The Harlem native offered some advice to Murray and Starr by reminding them that things did not turn out well when another “industry rapper” went up against a professional battle rapper unprepared.

“I know what they do over them beats and that music, but listen man – I tell people the battle game’s like the fight game. You gotta come ready to work,” says Lux. “If you’re playing and you ain’t prepared, then it’s gonna show. You see what happened when Canibus tried to come through.”

The Keith Murray versus Fredro Starr battle is scheduled for October 4 at Brooklyn’s Milk River. Tickets are available at mcwars.com. AllHipHop.com will also broadcast the event live.

EXCLUSIVE – Urban Legends: Part 1 Philly’s Jimmy Da Saint

Urban Legends is an AllHipHop.com original written series based on miraculous individual turnarounds in the urban entertainment world. Our features take a look at influential members in the Hip-Hop music, movie and television communities and we examine how they were able to find a better path despite their rough upbringing in the streets of urban America.
Below in our premiere story, we speak with Jimmy Da Saint about how he was able to overcome a life of crime to become one of the best-selling Black book authors in our era creating the Black Scarface series and others.   Having been incarcerated with the original Rick Ross during his federal prison stint, Jimmy developed an array of skills and published over 30 novels while he was incarcerated in prison. Read more and find out how Jimmy Da Saint put it all together from his own label that included members of State Property (Oschino and Sparks) to his highly successful booking and entertainment agency that he still runs today along with the Philly Hip-Hop Awards. A kid from West-Philly did that, and now he’s a book writer and a successful entrepreneur.

Let us highlight those that have persevered and turned over a new leaf after dealing with personal struggles. People that were caught up in the worlds of drugs and violent crimes but found a better way. They chose to do things the right way and these individuals are being rewarded. Enjoy, hope you learn something.

AllHipHop: If you could talk to me about your upbringing, where you’re from in Philly, how you were raised.  Just kind of want to know a little bit about that.

Jimmy Da Saint: Well I was raised in West Philadelphia, and I grew up – I wouldn’t say poor, see I didn’t know I was poor because my mom made sure I had everything.  So even though I grew up in the projects in West Philadelphia, I always had Christmas and Thanksgiving and Easter and all that kind of stuff.  My mom made sure that me and my brothers and sisters had that.  When I was younger, I was really into sports heavy,  I was a really good baseball player.  I played baseball in high school, junior high school and all that kind of stuff, and then I don’t know what happened.  When I got out of high school I just wanted fast money, I was just influenced by neighborhood drug dealers and guys who were getting fast money. That influenced me and I eventually wound up getting in that same profession – selling drugs and just being the whole street thing.

AllHipHop: So when you were selling drugs, were you selling crack?  Cocaine?  Were you selling weed?  What were you doing?

Jimmy Da Saint: Both.  Crack and cocaine, and I sold a little weed here and there.  I was really wasn’t too big on the weed, but I had it from time to time – I could get it.  I would get it to my workers that I would sell it– I didn’t actually sell it, myself.  I was in a position I had other people selling it for me.

AllHipHop: Right.  OK, go on.
Jimmy Da Saint:  That was it.  And I just got heavy into the whole drug thing and wound up, you know –  while I was in the whole drug business, I was also in the music business.  I was always involved with music because I used to be a rapper,
that happened to just be involved with drugs.  So I’d be selling drugs to other drug dealers that sold drugs for me and I’d be in the studio talkin sh*t and having fun living the life.

I’d be in the studio the majority of the day because I had a studio I owned– me and a friend of mine, they were making music and that’s why I wound up starting a group called ICH, Inner City Hustlers.  Two of the group members of ICH Oschino & Sparks, who I managed,  I wound up getting them a deal– a situation wi Rock-a-fella by Jay-Z.  He wound up signing two of my artists that were in my group.  I also managed a producer named Black Key at the time, and he wound up signing with Ruff Ryders.  He wound up doing a DMX album that was the Great Depression.

AllHipHop: Yeah, I know that.

Jimmy Da Saint: Yeah, I’ve known Black Key and worked with E-Ness since he was 13 –  he used to be Taz, like the Tasmanian Devil.  When I went to prison and came home from prison, he was E-Ness, so that was something new.  It’s like when I knew Cassidy, he was Lil’ B.  I came home from prison, he’s Cassidy.

AllHipHop: Yeah, that’s crazy.

Jimmy Da Saint: Yeah, so I was involved heavily in the music back then, mostly because I wound up getting a record deal, but I continued to sell drugs and I wound up getting in bad.  I was in my barbershop, and a FBI informant came in to buy a kilo of cocaine off me.  I sold him a kilo of cocaine, and I wound up getting indited.  A few days later, the FBI came and kicked my door in.  The person I sold the cocaine to was an informant and I didn’t know that he was working for the FBI.

AllHipHop: That’s crazy.  You pretty much answered my second question  “ICH,”  so you covered that but can you elaborate a bit more on “ICH”

Jimmy Da Saint:  Yeah ICH was pretty big and it’s crazy because in ’97 I was actually shot in an attempted kidnapping. I was in a wheelchair for a while, I was on a dialysis machine because my kidneys blew out, but I survived that and I wound up going right back into the whole drug thing again and I wound up getting indited and getting ten years in a federal prison.

But ICH was always a part of the mix.  ICH was a very, very, very popular group in Philadelphia.  When I came home from federal prison in 2010  I started ICH all over again, a new ICH with newer and younger members but I just stopped ICH, maybe, eight months ago.  I just stopped it and started focusing on one or two artists and not the whole group thing, eight artists at a time.

So I made them popular all over again.  I got XXL featured, if you go to Vibe.com or whatever, you’ll see it pops up. ‘Cause everybody was talking about them, we did a show with Wu-Tang and everybody– DMX, JadaKiss and we were the opening acts for all of them.  So when I came home it was easy for me to get five young, good city rappers, put them all together and I did the ICH all over again.  People remember the original ICH because of Oschino and Sparks.  They know Oschino and Sparks is from the group ICH and Jay-Z signed them and made a group called State Property and put those two members in State Property.

AllHipHop: Yeah.  So with these books and stuff like that, what was the spark that just, kind of made you pick up the pen one day and that kept you at it, you know what I mean?  What drove you?

Jimmy Da Saint:  You know, I just wanted to do something.  I remember the first day I went to prison– I actually started writing the first day I went to prison, day one.  Like, it didn’t take me a month, two months to get in there.  I remember walking in the yard and I was like, “Damn, I got ten years,” and I just wanted to write about it.  It’s just like I wanted to write and I remember they gave us some pens and pads to do something in our spare time– I began to write and I started writing and writing and then I was like, alright, start focusing on my first a book I wrote, called ‘Decisions,’ but I never put it out.

The first book I ever wrote, I let a few people read it and they liked it, then I started continuing to write, write, write and next thing you know I had four or five novels written and I got them typed and everything and I sent it out to a friend of mine, Vicky Stringer, who owns the largest Black independent book company in the world.  I sent it out to her because I was reading her book, and on the inside of her book, she said, “Write me.”

I wrote her and told her I was a book author and she wrote me back and said, “Send me the book.”  I sent it to her, she sent me a number back and said, “Call me as soon as possible.”  I called her, she said, “You got you a two-book deal.  This book is amazing.  I love it and I sent it to my publisher and they want to publish your book.”

And it happened just like that.  I was like, “Really?”  And they gave me advance money, and it was just a book deal– just like a record deal, but it was a book deal.  I was like, “Wow.”  I was just so inspired, I continued to keep writing and writing and writing and I wound up writing thirty novels while I was incarcerated.  I ghost-wrote a few books for other people and I got seventeen novels out right now, and a few are best-sellers.

I was like, “OK, I think I found my niche.”  I got a story to tell, I got shot, I grew up in the projects, I’m from the streets of Philly, I was a real drug dealer, I got indited by the FBI and the DEA, you now what I’m saying?  All my friends– half of my friends been murdered, I was in the rap game. I was with Jay-Z, with Dame Das.  This is my life– this has been my life.  Drugs and rap music has always been my life, so I could talk about this all day.

AllHipHop:  That’s crazy man.  I guess what’s amazing is that, you know, people don’t usually equate author, or novelist with drug dealer, street-shooting rapper – most people in society don’t associate the things at all.  They wouldn’t think that somebody who did that, could do what you did with these books.  What do you say to those people and why do you think you were able to do that?

Jimmy Da Saint:   It’s my life its real. Rick Ross was one of my closest friends in prison.  I walked up to him and I said, “You’re known for being a drug dealer,” and I said, “I can help change that.”  And he laughed and said, “Well what can you do?”  I said to him, “I’ll write a book.  I’m a book author– put best-selling book author next to your name, and we can get rid of that.”

He liked that and he said, “Wow.”  And I did it.  And I wound up writing a number one-selling book, Black Scarface.  That’s why it was co-written by Rick Ross.  I wanted to do something.  I wanted to show that I’m really one of y’all, like, really.  Not a fake one of y’all, I’m really one of y’all.  I’m from the streets.  No father, single mother, projects, crack cocaine, weed cocaine, murders, prison, FBI, rap music– I am that person all the way.  I don’t have to tell you about nobody else life, I can tell you about my life.

AllHipHop: What did you and Rick Ross talk about

Jimmy Da Saint: You know, Rick Ross told me something very important.  I’ll never forget it, he was like,, “Jim, you need to learn the art of networking.”  He said, “You so talented because you could write raps, you could write songs, you could write books.”

I was the commissioner of the basketball league in jail, I gave all those little concerts and poetry shows in jail. I was influential in prison and he was like, “But because you are so talented, these talents are going to go to your head and stuff because everybody depends on you,” He said, “You learn to be more humble and learn how to network more,” he said, “You’ll be a very powerful individual if you can do that.”

He’s the one who told me, “Just like this person over here might not be nobody, and just like this person over here is Jay-Z’s assistant or whatever, whatever, whatever, don’t break your neck for that assistant because everybody is the same and everybody is important.”  He used to tell me this all the time.  And I took that, I came home with that mentality– everyone counts.  Everybody.  Everyone, like this interview with you, or like an interview with Rock Lord Radio, underground radio with three viewers everyday, that’s important to me also.  If I can get my point across to those three individuals.

AllHipHop: Can you talk to me about your new movie with Rick Ross?

My new movie project is called FACE, based off my bestselling novel Black Scarface. It was co written by the real Rick Ross and Rick will be a producer on it. My partners on the project are Vance & Khan from Ruffhouse Records and William Alexander from Crevice Ent. in L.A. so I’m really looking forward to the possibilities on this one.

AllHipHop: Lastly, can you discuss your booking agency in Philly?

My company is called DaSaint Ent.  I manage artists, write books, produce movies, music and concerts with the local Live Nation. I have a back to school show I did with Mone’ Davis and several up and coming talents. I have the Philly Hip Hop awards and several other concerts I work on throughout the year. I’m staying busy!

Exclusive: Michael Ealy & Morris Chestnut Talk Good Vs. Evil In The Perfect Guy

Just in time for cuffing season and autumn date nights, Sony is unleashing the steamy thriller, The Perfect Guy upon audiences. The film splices just the right amount of chocolate box star power as Sanaa Latham stars as Leah, a successful professional who gets involved with a seemingly perfect guy Carter (Michael Ealy) after her longtime relationship with Dave (Morris Chestnut) hits a stagnant point. Unbeknownst to her upon their first date, Carter possesses a lethal alter-ego and when Dave comes back into the picture, an even more serious conflict is spawned.

The film combines the talents of director David M. Rosenthal and writers Alan B. McElroy and Tyger Williams alongside Ealy and Lathan in the executive producer chair. Hip-Hop Wired caught up with both of the leading men of the film and we broke apart their unique dynamic in The Perfect Guy.

Morris, if you had a dollar for every time a fan claimed you were “the perfect guy” how much money would you be holding?

Morris Chestnut: [Laughs] I thought you were going to ask me, if I had a dollar for every time some yelled out ‘Rickyyy’ [from Boyz n the Hood] I’d be a billionaire; I’d be richer than Donald Trump. Luckily I have people and fans who root for me but they don’t really tell me I’m the perfect guy.

You are pretty much the ideal good guy in every movie you play. How close were you to shaking things up this time around?

Morris Chestnut: The shake-up was when I came into the restaurant and had a situation with Mike’s character. That was the closest…and it was fun! Mike’s a really good dude; he’s a great actor and we had a great time shooting it.

Mike, you actually got to play the bad guy. Did you like doing this role?

Michael Ealy: I loved it. I loved everything from start to finish. In terms of coming on board to the project to producing the project and being part of the creative process and developing the script to where it needed to be. And shooting this movie was amazing.

The movie got shot in like a month?

Morris Chestnut: We shot it pretty quickly and it was pretty contained.

Michael Ealy: It was about two months for me.

Was this your first time executive producing, Mike?

Michael Ealy: Yes, the first and definitely won’t be the last. I could definitely see myself behind-the-scenes and transitioning as time goes by.

But the audience doesn’t want to see you behind-the-scenes, though.

Michael Ealy: Yeah…that’s alright [Laughs]. It depends on the content you give them and I think you got to share the love. Everybody has to get the shine in all aspects.

What was it like working with a first-time director?

Michael Ealy: David isn’t a first-time director. He’s a first-time studio director. He’s done independent films and I’ve seen his work and David’s sensibilities were exactly what we needed in this movie. Because he’s not in the studio system, he has more indie traits and once you’ve seen the film, you’ll understand that it’s not as polished as say a Think Like a Man. It’s not as conventional and that’s what we’re going for. It’s a genre piece and people know the genre but we shot it from a grimy sensibility opposed to relying on other troupes from other movies.

With a stalker tale like this, we’ve started to see it more prevalent in the news. Is there some sort of domestic violence message in this film?

Morris Chestnut: I definitely think so. I’d say the overall message is really trying to get to know the person [that you date]. Take your time and don’t rush into anything too quickly and really learn to understand them.

Michael Ealy: I’d say this story is bigger than domestic violence. I think domestic violence almost simplifies the script because it’s not a case of domestic or verbal abuse–that’s What’s Love Got to Do with It. This is a thriller–like a romantic, psychological thriller if you will–and it’s more about Carter’s goal. Carter’s goal isn’t to hurt Leah. Carter’s goal is to make Leah do what he wants, which is to love him. As long as she’s loves him, then she’s going to be O.K. and that’s the sociopath in him talking. It’s about control and power.

Is Carter setting light-skinned brothers back with this film?

Michael Ealy: You know…[Laughs]…no! People have made this comment and that’s not really the goal. And I feel like there will be a couple of light-skinned brothers that will be proud of this [Laughs]. But I don’t think being a sociopath has anything to do with the tone of anyone’s skin so that won’t apply here and people will see that in the movie.

Speaking of Ricky, did you get a chance to check out Straight Outta Compton yet, Morris?

Morris Chestnut: I haven’t! I’ve been working on this TV show, Rosewood and it’s been really hard for me to take out 2 1/2 hours for the movie. But I’m definitely going to see it real soon.

How do you feel about being on TV once again?

Morris Chestnut: It’s a blessing, to having the opportunity and I’m looking forward to it doing well. The good thing about a movie is you get a lot of time to sit in your trailer to get your character right. TV shows move so fast which could be a good and a bad thing. Some time you don’t get to get into a scene as much but it’s also good not waiting like eight hours just to shoot the first shot.

Both of you guys are part of a pretty tight-knit group of Black Hollywood. When you get a script and see that one or the other–like Sanaa Latham is on board, does it make an automatic go for you?

Morris Chestnut: For me, that was definitely one of things seeing both Sanaa and Michael were involved. I said, ‘Wow, these are two high-caliber actors and I want to be a part of it and add to the mix and see if we can make something special.’ And our characters never really worked together in the movies that we’ve done together so this was a chance for that happen.

Michael Ealy: We had a good crew. Working with Sanaa was something I wanted to do for a long time and she didn’t disappoint because she’s just that good. And funny…so funny.

Trailers look like they give a lot of the movie away but they really don’t. What can people expect from The Perfect Guy?

Morris Chestnut: They give some good moments away but there’s still the journey. A lot of times what I find is when it’s a good movie that’s well-executed, you kind of forget the trailer and getting engrossed in the movie step-by step, so hopefully this happens with this one.

Exclusive! IMG Is Growing New York Fashion Week Presence With New HQ

IMG fashion week

IMG’s expanded reach over New York Fashion Week isn’t limited to its show spaces (this season’s venues include Moynihan Station and Skylight Clarkson Sq), its recent acquisition of Made Fashion Week, or the sleek black-and-white logo that will appear on invites and the like. IMG is also launching NYFW HQ, a programming space to be located at 451 West Fourteenth Street, the south side of the building that houses Milk Studios.

To those who think it’ll serve as a lounge for editors and buyers to rest their stilettoed feet between shows, think again. HQ will showcase art installations, talk series, and additional events from September 11 to September 16. Some happenings will be open to the public, others will require IMG’s NYFW credentials, and several will be invitation-only. “Typically these sorts of events are happening around us, but no one has really corralled everything into one hub and had a broader, overarching conversation about what’s happening in fashion,” says IMG’s Leslie Russo. “We wanted to be the ones to introduce that conversation during the week.”

It’s bound to be a lively one. Some shows will be live-streamed and rebroadcast from the windows of HQ, and they’re expecting large crowds to gather on the sidewalk to watch. No invite necessary. Can’t make it? IMG will be promoting its programming on its @nyfw social channels and on nyfw.com.

EXCLUSIVE: Jon Connor Talks ‘Compton’ Studio Sessions with Dr. Dre, the ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Movie, and Getting Signed to Aftermath

On Tuesday, August 11, AllHipHop.com had the wonderful opportunity to speak with Aftermath recording artist (and AHH Breeding Ground alumni), Jon Connor.  The Flint, Michigan, native’s skills and tireless dedication to his craft have really been paying off as late.  Not only did he sign with the legendary Dr. Dre, but he also made two outstanding contributions to Dre’s Compton offering.connor-dre

During our conversation, Connor, among other things, broke down what its like working with one of the best producers to ever do it, shared memories of being on the set for Straight Outta Compton, and hinted that he has more dope music on the way.

One of the things he said to me while wrapping up was, “At the end of the day, I’m a fan of Hip-Hop just like everybody else.  I’m one of the people.”  And that is something which, even with all his success, has never evaded him.

If Connor continues to build on his already strong pillars of talent, respect for Hip-Hop culture, and gratitude for his fans, he will have a long and successful career which surpasses the competition.

It’s still Aftermath and there ain’t goin’ be nothin’ after that!

AllHipHop.com: Thank you so much for taking time to speak me and AllHipHop.com.  We really appreciate it.  You and I have talked before and that was a real pleasure, so I’ve been looking forward to this interview.

Jon Connor: I want to say back, the same thing with you all.  It’s mutual.  I appreciate you all and the way you have always supported me from day one.  It’s always a pleasure, man.

First off, congratulations on the Compton album.  Are you pleased with the response it has been getting?

Yes, there has been an overwhelming love.  And just knowing that everybody has been so excited and finally we get this project from Dre that people have been waiting so long for.  The love is overwhelming; the response has been amazing.  And the way it’s going hand-in-hand with the Straight Outta Compton movie, you couldn’t ask for a better platform or set up.

I’ve seen social media pics of you, Dre, and others in the studio where you’ve referred to yourself as a “student.”  What would you say is the greatest lesson you’ve learned from these sessions?

There’s so many because, with Dre, Dre is the greatest producer of all-time.  For me, he’s like the Quincy Jones of Hip-Hop.  So the thing is, everyday you’re constantly learning.  I’d say one of the greatest things I’ve learned from Dre is that greatness is in the details.  Don’t let anything slide.  If you’re tired or haveDre, Game, Jon Connor been working for 12 hours and are ready to go to sleep, you still put in the same effort and the same time as when you first got there.  Work your hardest until you can barely keep your eyes open.  If you have to go through every song and comb through every lyric and melody and harmony and cadence, you do it because he [Dr. Dre] has a commitment to greatness.  We all call Dr. Dre the greatest of all-time and I’m just fortunate and blessed enough to be able to be at the studio and understand why.  I’ve always thought I had a grind and hard work ethic in me, but, by being around Dre, it just got taken to another level.

Just to follow up with that, to paint a picture, have you been in the studio with Dre where you’ve watched him make a beat?  Or has it been where he has pulled up an instrumental and asked you to write to it?  How does that whole process work?

That process is actually different from record to record.  There are joints where I was actually there for the conception of the music.  Like “One Shot One Kill,” I was there when that beat got made.  “One Shot One Kill” is like my baby *laughs*.  I watched it go from an idea and a sample to the addition of the live instrumentation and Snoop and everything that it eventually ended up becoming.  But it’s different from record to record, Dre is the type of cat where it’s all based on the feel.  If he’s feeling it and the vibe and the energy is there… he doesn’t care how the creative process happens.  The one common denominator in every record is that the vibe and positive energy is there.

That’s actually a great segue into one of my other questions.  What went through your head when you first found out that you were given song credit as the lead performing artist on “One Shot One Kill” as opposed to just being a guest feature?

I still don’t know if that has completely soaked into my brain.  It’s crazy.  I have a record with me featuring Snoop Dogg on Dr. Dre’s last album.  That’s beyond anything I could have ever dreamed.  It feels amazing.  Statik Selektah hit me and he said, “You are forever etched in Hip-Hop history.”  And the magnitude of that statement, I don’t know if I’ll ever really be able to fathom or truly understand it.  All I know is that it’s an amazing feeling and honestly it’s hard for me to even put it in words.

And then, of course, there’s “For the Love of Money”  which you also appear on.  Prior to telling a friend about this interview, he sent me a screenshot of his phone with that song highlighted and a caption which read “This song is on repeat.”  He told me how he looked you up, and I said that I’d been following your work for years.  You’re satisfying old fans and getting new ones.  It’s a beautiful thing, bro.

And with that I want to say ‘thank you’ and tell your man I said, ‘thank you‘ too.  It’s an amazing time.  This is my dream.  I’m a kid from Flint, Michigan, man.  It’s one of the most poverty-stricken places in the United States and so for us to be talking about the things we’re talking about, I’m truly humbled by that and I just to let the people know there’s more where that came from and I’ll forever be thankful to Dre for giving me this platform.  And I want to thank AllHipHop because you’ve all been rocking with me for years and y’all know the grind that I’ve put down and how hard I worked for this.  And with Dre, he saw and understood me as an artist and believed in me enough to give me a platform.  I’m just humbled by all of this.

One of the things I did to prepare for this is I went back and listened to “Big Brother” off of your Best in the World series.  And listened to how you described the whole scenario where Dre signed you.  How did that situation play out?

Yo, it was three phone calls and a flight.  There was the initial call when Xzibit hit me like, “Yo, I’m gonna let Dre hear your music.”  Then the second call was, “Okay, give me 10 songs you want Dre to hear.”  Then the third call was, “Dre wants you to be in California tomorrow.”  When I got to California, I was working the whole time.  Think about it, man.  I’m from Flint.  If you’re from Flint, you think Dr. Dre lives on like Mars or Jupiter.  And so for him to like your music… he was just playing beats and I rapped every verse I ever wrote.  I was pulling out verses from high school.  I was like I’m not leaving this house until Dr. Dre falls in love with what I do.  Whatever he needed to hear, I was gonna spit it.  It got to the point where I rapped so much, he finally just stopped the music and was like, “Alright, what do you want to do?”  And that was the moment that changed my life.

Thoughts on Straight Outta Compton?

It’s crazy, my experiences with the movie because I was fortunate enough to go on the set as they were making the movie.  There’s no weirder feeling, I was on the set one day where they were shooting a scene with the characters that play Dr. Dre and his wife Nicole.  And I’m sitting in one of these chairs on set as the real Dr. Dre and Nicole are sitting in front of me.  I leaned into Dre and was like, “Man, do you feel crazy right now?”  When I got signed to Aftermath, the movie was still at its infant stage where they still coming up with the script and picking actors.  I had a chance to legitimately watch this movie grow and become what it has become…  I think people already know it’s going to be good because it’s the story of N.W.A and we all want to see it,  but just the attention to detail that Gary, Dre, and Cube put into the movie – I think it’s going to surprise people because they’ll be things about N.W.A and their relationship and how things went down that none of us as fans knew.  It’s a great movie for Hip-Hop and a great movie in the sense of just being a great movie. 

Jumping back to music, do you have any more “Best in the World” stuff coming out or is your next release going to be your Aftermath debut with original music?

You know what?  I don’t want to give away too much, but just know that the things that I am working on are almost done.  And we are so close to completion, it’s crazy.  But right now though, I just want the people to enjoy Compton.  For me right now, it’s all about Dre and thirty years plus of the greatest to ever do it.  It’s Dre Day!
