British Fashion Council Expands China Partnerships Strategy With Ontimeshow

LONDON — The British Fashion Council is expanding its China partnerships strategy with Ontimeshow, one of Shanghai’s largest trade shows, to promote British brands during Shanghai Fashion Week later this month. They will also host a series of events with key industry partners, WWD has learned. An announcement is expected today.

Brands Roksanda and Peter Pilotto will launch a stand-alone showroom within Ontimeshow from March 28 to 31, with support from the Department for International Trade. The trip will help the brands’ business development in the market and the designers will have the opportunity to meet with key retailers, media, stylists, opinion leaders, creative industry influencers and high-net-worth individuals from the region.
“China has always been an important part of our strategy,” said Caroline Rush, chief executive officer of the BFC. “We are delighted to collaborate with Ontimeshow to bring two hero brands of London Fashion Week to Shanghai. We hope this is only the

The Skinny on Skin: The Company Expands Into Lifestyle Brand

Skin, the 15-year-old loungewear and sleepwear company founded by Susan Beischel, president and chief creative officer, is growing on several fronts.
The luxury lifestyle brand, which sells such retailers as Net-a-porter, Neiman Marcus, Bon Marché, Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys New York, introduced swimwear last year, as well as a second-tier line called Natural Skin, geared to stores such as Bloomingdale’s, Dillard’s, Hudson’s Bay and Printemps.
Natural Skin, which had a successful soft launch at retail in the fall, is priced 35 percent to 40 percent below Skin, said Ken Sitomer, chief executive officer, who joined as Beischel’s business partner in 2011. Like Skin, Natural Skin comprises sleepwear, loungewear, robes, slippers, daywear and organic cotton bras and panties, along with basic replenishments.
Skin swimwear, whose distribution has been kept relatively tight, is sold at such retailers as Net-a-porter, Everything But Water, Neiman Marcus and Matches.com.
According to Beischel, the swimwear has the same concept as Skin’s other luxe products. as far as comfort, style and being multifunctional. “The fabric had to be super soft, and I needed to wear it as a body suit, or as a bra, or a workout top,” she said. Swimwear retails from $ 160 for the basic maillot to $ 300

La Prestic Ouiston Expands With Plans for Store in Paris

A NEW FLAME: Rounding out a globetrotting tour of pop-up stores, La Prestic Ouiston is opening its first boutique in the Saint Germain district of Paris and launching an e-commerce site at the start of next year.
Nearly a decade old, the upscale Parisian label best known for original prints and fluid silhouettes, has recently experienced a surge of interest abroad, where it is sold in places including Fivestory in New York, Ron Herman in Los Angeles and Japan, Hanwha Galleria in Seoul, and soon on Matchesfashion.com.
For the label’s designer Laurence Mahéo, opening a Paris store will offer the chance to return to her design roots with one-off items. Self-taught, the designer was exposed to textiles growing up—her grandparents ran a high-end fabric store in France—and, as an adult, started selling clothing at Le Bon Marché in small batches of one-off pieces. Mahéo branched out into collections at the suggestion of the Left Bank institution’s Régine Bérault.
“I didn’t realize I was building a brand—I was making clothing,” recalled Mahéo.
“I still have a hard time realizing that it has become a French label with a certain notoriety…I feel like I have spent 10 years working like crazy and, suddenly, lifting my head

LVMH Expands Les Journées Particulières to Four Continents

FAR AND WIDE: The fourth edition of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s Les Journées Particulières promises to be bigger and better than ever, with 23 new houses taking part in the biennial event, which for the first time will stretch over four continents.
The “open days” event is spreading to the U.S., Latin America, Australia and New Zealand, with a total of 13 participating countries this year, versus six in 2016.
Among the 39 sites that will open to the public for the first time between Oct. 12 and 14 are a Louis Vuitton prototype workshop in Paris; the restored Château de la Colle Noire, formerly owned by Christian Dior; the Caffè Cova pastry shop in Milan, and Newton Vineyard in Napa Valley, Calif.
The conglomerate headed by luxury titan Bernard Arnault launched the initiative in 2011 to counter a perception that it was only interested in squeezing its houses for profit, his son Antoine Arnault told a news conference on Thursday at La Grande Epicerie de Paris Rive Droite food market, opened last year.
“I think it’s important to balance this image of the group, centered on profit and performance, with the reality,” he said. “We don’t design our collections or make decisions

Frye Expands Into Women’s and Men’s RTW

The Frye Company, the 155-year-old American leather goods brand known for its footwear and accessories, is expanding into ready-to-wear, launching full collections for men and women for fall 2018 retailing.
The collections reflect the all-American, workwear-based sensibility of the shoes — specifically the brand’s most popular boots styles, including the Harness, the Campus and the Engineer boots. The finishes and stitchwork of the boots is translated onto leather jackets and outerwear. The women’s line reflects a “modern bohemian” look, while the men’s muse is a “modern rebel.” There are marled, Western-inspired knits, prairie dresses, workwear pants and jeans, and rugged outerwear including Western leather jackets, distressed perfectos and parkas. The prices range from $ 48 to $ 698 and the collection will be carried in Frye stores and online, as well as wholesale partners which are yet to be determined.
The Frye Company is part of Authentic Brands Group’s portfolio. The ready-to-wear expansion is being done in partnership with Global Brands Group.
Jarrod Weber, executive vice president of grand at ABG, called the rtw foray “the natural next step for the brand,” adding that “the authenticity of Frye’s 155-year heritage translates very well in the apparel and outerwear categories.”

Dior Expands in Germany With First Berlin Flagship

DIOR’S ARTISTIC BERLIN: Dior is growing its retail footprint in Germany with the French fashion house’s first stand-alone store in Berlin. Opening Saturday, the flagship at number 56 on this designer-studded stretch of Kurfürstendamm is marked by assorted artistic features. It provides the latest example of Berlin’s long-standing practice of incorporating art into retail environments.
Fabricated out of repurposed materials, the shop’s metal furniture by designer Stefan Leo, who has contributed to other Dior interiors, creates trompe l’oeil effects. Prague’s graffiti pioneer, Jan Kaláb, provided a softer note with his rounded, abstract LB Bubble artworks, while the Versailles parquet floors in the women’s department recalls Christian Dior’s personal fondness for the 18th century.
The store houses the Dior women’s and men’s collections, jewelry and perfume, and joins Dior German flagships in Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich, as well as dedicated spaces in KaDeWe Berlin, Oberpollinger Munich and Breuninger in Stuttgart. The company would not comment on further expansion plans in Europe’s strongest economy.

Loewe Moves to Bond Street, Expands U.K. Presence

LONDON — Loewe is growing its retail footprint in the U.K., with a new store and increased shop floor space in key U.K. department stores, all in the works for next year.
The label is planning on moving its London flagship location from Mount Street to a bigger space on 41 New Bond Street, which will follow the Casa Loewe concept, first introduced by creative director Jonathan Anderson in Madrid and Tokyo.
The new store, which spans 500 square meters across three floors, will stock the full men’s and women’s advanced ready-to-wear, handbag and leather accessories collections, as well as contemporary works of art from photography to sculpture and art pieces, handpicked by Anderson.
The brand said the new Bond Street location is a reflection of the brand’s “international growth strategy,” and it will be followed with openings of a number of other “global hubs,” which will reflect the brand’s new direction under Anderson, and its focus on offering its customers ample space and a shopping experience in a carefully curated environment.
The store is set to open in September.
In addition to the new flagship, Loewe has also been working toward making itself more visible in London’s key department stores. The brand is set

Garde Robe Expands Its Wardrobe Storage Service to Australia

CYBER CLOSET HEADS DOWN UNDER: Garde Robe, the luxury clothing storage and valet service with locations in New York, California and Nevada, is expanding its international reach to Australia with new locations in Melbourne and Sydney through a partnership with IAS Fine Art Logistics.
For the uninitiated, Garde Robe specializes in the preservation and storage of textiles and offers a “Cyber Closet” delivery service for its clientele — which includes designers, who use it to protect and manage their archival collections, as well as celebrities, couture collectors and socialites — for $ 350 per month. “When we first started, people thought this service was just for New Yorkers [who] don’t have enough closet space,” said vice president and co-owner Doug Greenberg. “But most of our clients have multiple residences anyway. It’s more about the [monetary] value of the clothes that they own and also the sentimental value. Some clients have so much clothing that they need someone to help them manage it, just like you would if you were a collector of art.”
The decision to expand to Australia — home to a burgeoning fashion industry — came about rather practically; Greenberg said the combination of apartment and coastal living there creates a
