BERLIN — Hugo Boss is keeping things close to home with its latest capsule collection: Boss “Made in Germany.”
While the Metzingen-based giant is more normally inclined to emphasize its global expertise, Boss is now openly celebrating its heritage with a 12-piece capsule for men and women designed and manufactured in Germany.
“Made in Germany” is not exactly new for Boss, pointed out chief brand officer Ingo Wilts. The brand’s full canvas suits are all produced in Boss headquarters. “But we’re proud to be the biggest premium fashion-maker in Germany, and thought it would be great to do something German and celebrate our heritage.”
He added, “We also know that whenever we go outside Germany, in France or Asia, for example, they really appreciate [articles] made in Germany. Though it was a big effort to find someone who makes knits and leathers here.” The lion’s share of the collection, which has a natty tailored slant, was manufactured at Boss headquarters in Metzingen.
Built on the brand’s tailoring DNA and working with Italian fabrics exclusively developed for Boss, the collection features six revamped classics each for men and women. Men have their pick of a double-breasted coat and blouson in a bonded wool check, a burgundy
The Erotic Heritage Museum has announced it will be hosting Tuesday Thomas and Cyrus Naderpour’s “Freak Show!” for a limited-run summer residency.
The veil is being lifted on Hèrmes at a temporary exhibition that opened to the public Saturday at the company’s Beverly Hills boutique.
“Harnessing the Roots,” curated by Bruno Gaudichon, begins in the back of the Rodeo Drive store and starts with the story of bridles and the house’s history with horses and the equestrian world.
“For Hèrmes, it is the first time that we open the veil because we are rather discreet on our past,” said Menehould de Bazelaire, Hèrmes artistic director of cultural patrimony, who was in town from Paris for the opening. “We don’t want to be proud of what was made before by Hèrmes. We always want to remember to be proud of what we will make tomorrow. It’s our challenge.”
Visitors in the exhibition’s first room are greeted with a terracotta horse dating back anywhere from 2500 to 1900 BC, which is juxtaposed with a 19th century Hèrmes bridle just a few paces away. Both pieces come from the Émile Hèrmes collection, with the terracotta statue the oldest piece of the group.
“This was the idea of Émile Hèrmes when he started his private collection,” de Bazelaire said. “He wanted to create a bridge between the past, the origin
Every relationship has its milestones: first meetings, big fights, and developing the kind of shorthand that only the two parties in a partnership understand.

BIG IN CHINA: Vera Wang and Ron Perelman were among the honorees at the China Institute’s annual Blue Cloud gala Thursday night.
The gathering at Cipriani’s lower Broadway location in the Cunard Building was meant to center on the Institute’s commitment to advancing understanding and deepening trust between China and the U.S. Ning Yuan, chairman and president of China Construction America, and Robert Hong Xiao, chief executive officer of Perfect World Co. Ltd. were also honored, as well as New York Gov. Andrew Coumo, who wasn’t able to attend the black tie dinner.
Beforehand, China Institute chairman Chien Chung Pei, better known as “Didi,” said of the honorees, “They share the spirit and mission of China Institute to shape positive and strong U.S.-China relations through education, culture and business.”
Derek Lam also turned up to support Wang. She later told the crowd how growing up in the U.S., her parents Cheng Ching and Florence Wang encouraged her to embrace American culture, never allowing her to forget her Chinese heritage. That delicate balance was what provided her and her brother “with such a unique view of the world and a sincere appreciation for both cultures,” she said.
Noting how the world she once knew has
The fashion world has always had a complicated relationship with America. In the collective estimation of the trendsetters who make their living crisscrossing the globe to find the very best things you can put on your back, the clothing, shoes, and accessories produced by the designers here in the States aren’t as experimental as what you’ll find in London or Tokyo, nor as sensual as the stuff

After digging into the archives, Brooks is rereleasing four classic silhouettes for the new season.
A minor league baseball team in Utah cancelled its planned “Caucasian Heritage Night” after it spawned the expected backlash, protest and controversy. MLB’s Los Angeles Angels affiliate the Orem Owlz is the team earning this month’s award for profound insensitivity, and stupidity.
Reports the Salt Lake City Tribune:
“Caucasian Heritage Night” in Orem came and went in the span of a couple of hours Friday, apparently taking the director of communications for Orem Owlz with it.
The Owlz, a Pioneer League affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels, had scheduled Caucasian Heritage Night for Aug. 10 as part of the season’s promotions. But on Friday, after news outlets took interest and Caucasian Heritage Night was trending nationally on Twitter, the rookie-league team canceled the event.
In a statement released Friday afternoon, the team said the promotion was intended to be a lighthearted event.
“Minor League Baseball and the Orem Owlz is about baseball, togetherness and family fun for all fans of all races, religions and orientations. Our goal in this promotion, like any of our promotions, is to have fun and make fun of everyday normalcies,” the Owlz said. “Our night was to include Wonder Bread on burgers with mayonnaise, clips from shows like ‘Friends’ and ‘Seinfeld’ and trying to solve the vertical leaping challenge.”
Sounds like pure struggle.
The team issued statement also says, “We understand, in light of recent tragic events, that our intentions have been misconstrued. For that, we sincerely apologize.”
So if the tragedy in Charleston didn’t happen, does that mean the event would have gone on as planned? And if you’re wondering, “What’s the big deal?” You’re part of the problem because “white privilege.”
As Deadspin points out, Utah is 85% white, so there’s that.

Zendaya tells Access why she took the time to trace her family’s origins during Immigrant Heritage Month.
Inspired by Halston’s trip to Acapulco, Mexico, in 1976 — which the designer took with an entourage of “Halstonettes” in tow — Marie Mazelis channeled a tropical vibe for her sexy resort lineup. “I wanted to capture that spirit of glamour and ease and holiday,” she said.
Wide-legged jumpsuits, billowy blouses, sheer caftans and lightweight pleated dresses — done in a palette of punchy greens and lavenders, and punctuated with pops of black and white — had a retro feel with deep necklines, high slits and cutouts accented with hardware.
