Terez x Keith Haring Collection Launches Today on Terez.com

Terez, the New York-based ath-leisure brand, is collaborating with the estate of the late Keith Haring to develop the Terez x Keith Haring collection.
The partnership was forged in collaboration with Artestar, which represents high-profile artists,  photographers, designers and creatives.
Haring, who died in 1990, was known for his Pop Art and graffiti-like style, which grew out of the New York street culture of the Eighties. The collaboration was said to be heavily inspired by the power of love.
The pieces from Haring’s image library used for this collaboration were those that triggered joy through their vibrant colors, something that is a Terez signature, according to the brand.
The collection includes leggings, bras, tanks, Ts, crewnecks and joggers. Prices range from $ 60 for an uplifted heart-muscle T to $ 101 for a rainbow crowd printed jogger.
The collection launches today and is exclusively being sold at terez.com.

Haney Launches Red-Carpet Capsule Collection With Intermix

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

Chiara Ferragni Launches Beauty Bites Masterclass

QUEEN MIDAS: Everything Chiara Ferragni touches seems to turn into gold — or even better, into its modern equivalent of likes and followers.
The latest initiative launched by the influencer and entrepreneur behind The Blonde Salad digital platform and the Chiara Ferragni Collection footwear and accessories label is no exception.
Ferragni teamed with her personal makeup artist Manuele Mameli to launch Beauty Bites, a beauty masterclass to be held in Milan’s Teatro Vetra venue on Feb. 9–10.
Sponsored by Lancôme and Sephora, the project will “enable followers to move from virtual to real,” reads the dedicated web site providing information on the special event. Starting from 2.30 pm, the four-hour makeup and hair style masterclass will be divided in two parts: in the first, Mameli will share professional beauty techniques and tips, while the other will involve attendees — including Ferragni herself — trying to replicate the looks.
Mayhem in the social kingdom followed: after the Beauty Bites Instagram account featuring teasers, videos and Ferragni’s key beauty looks reached 44,500 followers in a few days, over 37,000 people queued online on Tuesday to buy the 700 tickets available to the masterclass, with many users giving up once they discovered that beauty — and Ferragni

Big Booby Benevolence: Woman Launches $100K Bra GoFundme To Help Other Women In Need

Stephanie Nelson AKA Persephanii

Source: Stephanie Nelson / Instagram

With a bust size of 34S, Stephanie Nelson knows a little bit about the struggles of finding a bra that fits and supports her situation properly. Ms. Nelson has launched a $ 100,000 GoFundMe effort to support other women in the journey of locating bras that both look and feel good in an overall bid to promote breast health.

Some readers might remember Nelson as one of our Baes and Baddies entries under the name persephanii, and as we noted then, her curvaceous frame is without a doubt a head-turner. However, she’s noticed the plight of women of her busty ilk in noting that many of them are wearing ill-fitting bras and how that could be contributing to their back pain and the like.

From GoFundMe:

I am a size 34S and I have no pain associated with my back and shoulders from having large breasts! It was not always like that. I wore poor suppprting bras thatugged on my back and shoulders to the point of me considering having a breast reduction.

Breast health is extremely important. Finding the right size is even more important. Many women walk around with pain in their back, shoulder and chest because they cannot find the right size. As a breast healthy woman I fear there could be a correlation to breast diseases and wearing poor supporting bras. I would like to raise money to not only purchase new bras for myself but also do give aways and events and help other women with large breasts find bras that fit well, improve their posture and help get rid of pain.

With all of that being said. BRA’S are expensive. Please donate if you’d love to see a reduction in pain and more confident breast healthy women near you!

Nelson kept it a stack in saying she wants to cop new wears for herself, but the larger goal of helping others is really the best part in all of this. Salute to her.

Saint Laurent Launches Art Project With Daido Moriyama Exhibition

SELF PORTRAIT: Just in time for the Paris Photo fair, Saint Laurent is launching Self, an art project celebrating the various facets of the brand’s identity, with an exhibition by Daido Moriyama.
Moriyama’s works will be in show from Nov. 9 to 11 in a light installation accessible to the public in the Galerie d’Orléans courtyard in front of the Palais-Royal garden.
The Japanese photographer is the first in a series of artists and filmmakers selected by Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello to participate in the project. “This project is an artistic commentary on society while emphasizing the core values of Saint Laurent,” the brand said in a statement.
The title, Self, refers to the concept of personality and also includes the brand’s initials. Further chapters will be disclosed with different formats depending on the content and the location in which they are unveiled, a spokeswoman for the house said.
The Saint Laurent brand has a long history of dialogue with the arts. Some of founder Yves Saint Laurent’s haute couture creations referenced works by the likes of Piet Mondrian, Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso.

Louis Vuitton Launches Kishin Shinoyama Book in Tokyo

TOKYO — Louis Vuitton added five new titles to its “Fashion Eye” series of photo books this fall. On Thursday, the brand held a launch event at its Roppongi Hills store to commemorate the tome “Silk Road” by Kishin Shinoyama. The famed photographer is the first Japanese person to be selected as a part of the series.
The images in the book were originally published between 1981 and 1982 in eight separate volumes that included more than 1,200 photos. For the Vuitton edition, editor Patrick Remy cut this down to nearly 300, which was still far more than the roughly 70 to 80 shots that appear in the other Fashion Eye titles. So in order to keep the thickness of the book equal to that of the others in the series, the decision was made to use an extremely thin paper. Editorial director Julien Guerrier said it was a challenge to find a paper and printing method that would work without transparency issues, but eventually a solution was reached.
“It’s actually very fitting that you have this silk-like paper for a book on the Silk Road,” Guerrier said.
Shinoyama signed copies of the book and gave a short presentation at the event

AG Denim Scion Samuel Ku Launches New Line CQY

The premium denim resurgence continues in Los Angeles. Samuel Ku, who was president and creative director of AG Jeans for a decade, is launching a new denim an essentials line called CQY.
With CQY, pronounced “coy,” Ku envisioned clothes built to last – with clean and modern silhouettes balanced by a deep respect for the rich heritage of denim. Using Japanese selvage denims produced by Kaihara, and jersey knitted by the finest mills in Japan and Los Angeles, CQY’s collection will consist of minimal wardrobe essentials – a handful jean styles, a pair of khakis, a denim jacket and shirt, and a handful of cotton tops for both women and men.

The CQY campaign was styled by Samantha Traina and features Louise Follain.

11 Honoré Size-Inclusive Luxury Site Launches Editorial Content Platform

HIGH-END FASHION OPTIONS: One-year-old size-inclusive shopping site 11 Honoré hosted a breakfast at Sadelle’s in New York Thursday to toast the launch of their editorial content platform, Page 11, focused on fashion, beauty, personal style and wellness.
And toast may be an understatement. The breakfast consisted of house salmon tower, grapefruit cocktail, blueberry pancakes, cheese blintzes, scrambled eggs, sausage and avocado. And plenty of bagels — giving journalists and influencers enough sustenance to power through the first day of fashion week.
Founded last year by Patrick Herning, 11 Honoré is the first retailer of its kind to offer a selection of luxury and designer ready-to-wear from sizes 10 to 24. By partnering with designers, the site offers resources they need, such as fit technology, graders and fit models to produce in extended sizing. Many of the brands have never offered their clothing in plus sizes before, and their patternmakers might not be comfortable with it, nor have the resources. The styles are the same as in straight sizes.
The site launched in August 2017 with 15 brands, and for fall will feature 70, including Brandon Maxwell, Adam Lippes, Altuzarra, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Derek Lam, Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, Jonathan Simkhai, Christian Siriano, Theory and

Yohji Yamamoto Launches Global E-commerce Store

BEIJING–International fans of the Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto now have a one-stop digital shop for all his goods in the form of “Yohji Yamamoto The Shop”.
While the designer made his products for sale online in a Japanese-language website in July, non-Japanese speakers were left out. On Thursday, the house debuted a global store bringing together products under the designer’s multiple lines.
That includes, Yohji Yamomoto Produce, which reproduces his signature hits; entry-level and web-only brand, S’YTE; the genderless Ground Y line; luxury accessories from discord Yohji Yamamoto; to casual wear offerings Yohji Yamamoto + NOIR, and Y’s. It will also sell LIMI feu, designed by his daughter Limi Yamamoto.
It marks the first time S’YTE and Ground Y have been offered outside of Japan thus far. The online store is capable of delivering to about 130 countries across the world.
For the time being, the digital side is geared towards the western consumer. The website is displayed in English with transactions in U.S. dollars via Visa, Mastercard or Paypal but the house said it plans to release an app in the early September, and a Chinese language web store later in the same month.

Twitter Launches New Bookmark Feature With The Help Of User Input

Currency and Social Media

Source: NurPhoto / Getty

Twitter finally introduced a new feature that is honestly worth using on a regular basis. If you haven’t noticed there is a new share tab located bottom right corner underneath tweets houses the new Bookmark feature that allows users to revisit the tweets later.

Still can’t edit published tweets, though.

We still appreciate this latest update, and the best part about it is you no longer have to essentially like the tweet anymore which is announced to your entire timeline. Your bookmarked tweets can only be seen by you so don’t be ashamed anymore to save that thirst trap that graces the timeline or that weird tweet you want to harp on in your free time. To find the bookmarked tweet, tap your profile avi and in the menu, you will find the bookmark tab. From there you can view and remove your bookmarked tweets.

On top of bookmarks, you can also now share tweets via direct messages or any many other ways off the platform. Twitter is finally listening to their users and used the suggestions that were given to them while they worked on the new feature.

“We Tweeted ongoing updates as we built Bookmarks so we could incorporate your input as we worked. By working this way, we learned that you like to save replies so you can answer later and that you may share a Tweet hours or days later after you’ve bookmarked it. Thank you for being part of this process — your feedback was valuable in building this update, and it made it all the more fun for us as we built a new feature for you. As a result, we all have an easier way to save, share, and stay informed.”

Bookmarking tweets is a great idea now hopefully the next new feature is editing tweets we don’t want anything else.

Margi Gad Launches Fierce + Regal Activewear With More of a Lifewear Point of View

NO TIMEOUTS: As a former private fine jeweler specializing in diamonds, Margi Gad brings a more gilded approach to activewear with her label Fierce + Regal.
A one-shouldered metallic taupe top, a platinum tunic, capri leggings with two zippers on the hip and a hooded blush-colored overthrow are among the styles. As for similarities between activewear and fine jewelry, Gad said, “Well, they both have a lot of gold. We use a lot of gold accents. This is sort of a gem of an activewear line. It is a glittering jewel in an overcrowded marketplace.”
Taking more of a lifewear approach, the collection relies on primarily Italian fabrics, aiming for more of a luxe touch. The neutral colored activewear can be interchanged with wardrobe pieces. The logo-free, minimalist chic collection lends itself to ready-to-wear, Gad said. “I really wanted something sophisticated.”
The company’s e-commerce business is up-and-running and Gad is committed to selectively building Fierce + Regal’s specialty store base. She connected with specialty stores during her first outing at the recent Active Collective at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan.
Gad said, “I have always really loved working out and being active, so this really came from a personal need. I found myself running to

Moncler Launches Charity Project with UNICEF

WARM HEART: Moncler has partnered with UNICEF – the United Nations international children’s emergency fund, – to launch a charity project. Named “Warmly Moncler For UNICEF,” the initiative aims to provide clothes and survival kits to children and families in need who live in areas around the world with harsh winter weather conditions.
In particular, the outerwear specialist and the charity association – which operates in 192 countries, – will provide thermal blankets, hats, gloves, scarves, socks and shoes, in addition to fuel to warm up homes and schools. Clean water, food and medicines will be also included in the survival kits.
Previously, Moncler supported children in need by funding the Child Priority Foundation. For the occasion, the brand launched the “Moncler Toy” initiative, which combined art and fashion.
A quirky version of the brand’s iconic cartoonish duck that imparts washing instructions inside all of Moncler’s jackets was molded from glass resin with a three-dimensional effect. The statue was then handed over to British artist Stuart Semple, who manually reproduced a mountain scene onto the duck in black and white, and auctioned it off.
Established in Grenoble, France, in 1952, Moncler was acquired by Italian entrepreneur Remo Ruffini in 2003 and is publicly listed

Pedro García Launches Nordstrom Pop-Ins, Turns Focus to U.S.

IF THE SHOE FITS: Third generation shoemaker Pedro García was in Los Angeles this week to celebrate the opening of a temporary Nordstrom shop-in-shop, as the Spain-based company aims to further develop its business locally.
“In recent years this has been one of our main markets,” García said of California, pointing to a coastal climate mirroring where the company is based. “The idea is to keep developing the business, going a little bit more deep even though we know that we don’t want to go crazy with production. We want to keep delivering the quality we deliver.”
García’s grandfather, also named Pedro García, started the business in 1925, building a brand focused on the tradition of craftsmanship that’s been passed down to now the company’s third generation. The quality and style hasn’t gone unnoticed with the label seen on celebrities such as Lana Del Rey, Drew Barrymore, Emily Blunt and Sarah Jessica Parker. The line — ranging from flats to heels — are made in the company’s factory in Elda, Spain, and sold at retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Selfridges, Net-a-porter, Neiman Marcus and David Jones among others.
The company this week celebrated the temporary pop-in at Nordstrom’s new store at Westfield Century

Next Management New York Launches Men’s Division

Next Management New York is introducing a men’s division.
According to Kyle Hagler, the president of Next NY, the company has thought about launching a men’s business for a few years, but believes now is the right time.
“We feel like the possibilities in men’s modeling at this point are expansive and there’s the possibility to build out superstars who have long-lasting careers that are just as impactful as their female counterparts,” said Hagler. “I think, with careful strategy and a point of view, we will be able to have men command the same attention and money as the women do. For a long time men’s has been regarded as accessories to a women’s conversation, and that’s changing.”
Next Management New York has tapped Gaspard Lokote Lukali, who previously started Request Model Management, to lead the division.
“Sometimes managers just do what the market commands, and what Gaspard and his team have been great about doing is setting the standard as opposed to follow the trend,” said Hagler.
Prior to launching the division, Next Management NY represented musicians Travis Scott and Diplo. Additions to the men’s roster include Dylan Brosnan, son of Pierce Brosnan; Liam Daniels, son of Lee Daniels, and Skylar Penn, grandson of

Citizens of Humanity Founder Launches New Line

Jean Atelier is a new denim-based ready-to-wear collection from Citizens of Humanity founder Jerome Dahan and designer Noam Hanoch. Launching at Barneys New York and FWRD Elyse Walker for fall 2017, the collection includes trousers, French lace tops, draped dresses, outerwear as well as elevated and embellished tailored denim shirts, jumpsuits, skirts and jeans.
Dahan and Hanoch worked together for 10 years at Citizens of Humanity before Hanoch launched a collection under his own name, which eventually shuttered. Working on a higher-end denim line was always their goal when they were together at Citizens, but they were hemmed in by the constraints of the contemporary market at the time. For the past year they’ve been working, along with Dahan’s wife Elsa, the brand manager, on Jean Atelier.
“Jean Atelier is more directional creatively and has a much sexier aesthetic [than Citizens of Humanity],” Hanoch said. “We felt like the premium denim space has become very saturated and price-point driven, so we saw a tremendous opportunity in the market for a designer denim brand with a strong point of view.”
“In the last few years the denim market became very oversaturated with basics,” Elsa said. “The retail market wasn’t great in the last few years,

Couturissimo Launches in China, Previews New Collection

SHANGHAI – Couturissimo, the one-year-old brand backed by the Asian Couture Federation [ACF] and charged with a mission to democratize couture, formally introduced itself to Chinese consumers Friday with the launch of a pop-up store.
The week-long pop-up in Huaihai Road’s K11 Mall is designed to allow consumers an opportunity to get up close and personal with Couturissimo’s current season garments, which are normally available via the brand’s online platform but are also increasingly appearing at trunk shows, as well as boutique-in-boutique and pop-up concepts around Asia and the rest of the world.
According to the brand’s founder, Dr. Frank Cintamani, who is also founding president of the Asian Couture Federation, Couturissimo is looking to an online-to-offline strategy in order to attract a wider customer base. As well as K11, the brand is working with Lane Crawford in China and is also in talks with Harrods and Selfridges in London.
“For quite a while people have been debating what is better, offline or online. I think the answer is to have both positions, in an intelligent manner. I think brick and mortar has been challenged quite dramatically, so for us not to have to go straight into only standalone boutique, but working with retail

Fetty Wap Launches His Own Young & Reckless Collection [Photos]

Barring any sort of miraculous resurgence from Drake and Future or the Frozen soundtrack, Fetty Wap and his self-titled debut are poised for a top spot on the Billboard 200.

PacSun and the Young & Reckless clothing company are capitalizing off the moment and releasing the new “Still Runnin’ Pack” with the king of the “trap queens.” The new nine-piece assortment of tees, jerseys, hoodies and crews was inspired by the New Jersey Trap&B star himself.

“Fetty is the natural choice to represent the “Still Runnin’” pack, Young & Reckless says of their new brand ambassador. “He’s been on the move since we met him and months later there’s still no sign of slowing down. If we’ve learned anything
from Fetty, when you’re on top you should be working just as hard as you were when you were grinding in the early days. That’s the true key to lasting success.”

Kiton Launches Eyewear Line in Paris

NEAPOLITAN STYLE: Italian tailoring brand Kiton launched its eyewear with a gourmet soiree at its Paris store on Friday night. Amid its suits, chef Nino di Costanzo served the best of Neapolitan cuisine, a nod to the brand’s southern Italian roots.
Over aubergine bruschetta and crunchy sfogliatella, the region’s cream-stuffed pastry, Kiton chief executive officer Antonio De Matteis explained: “The glasses are supposed to be like a good suit. Every piece is custom-made for us and carefully assembled one by one.”
The eight styles of optical frames and sunglasses in 12 colors are made of titanium and cellulose acetate that is produced for Kiton by Mazzucchelli. The frames’ screws mimic those of Kiton’s tailoring scissors, while the lenses come from Barberini.
According to De Matteis, it’s the first time this Italian optics specialist produced a lens as thin and as flat as this one. “It’s a so-called basic lens 2. Usually, the industry uses a lens 6, so this makes the glasses ultra-light, while keeping a high performance,” the executive explained.
The men’s collection, which retails between 400 euros, or $ 446 at current exchange, and 700 euros, or $ 782, is slated to grow by two to three styles per season, while a ladies’ line

BABENZIEN AT BERGDORF: Brendon Babenzien, the former creative director of streetwear brand Supreme, will be at Bergdorf Goodman on Saturday during the store’s fall men’s event to introduce shoppers to his new men’s wear line, Noah. This is the first time the collection has been available at retail since Babenzien announced the project in February.
“Bergdorf Goodman is an incredible store,” Babenzien told WWD. “To maybe bring a little bit of our brand attitude and ethos to them and their customer is a cool thing to do and I think it’s going to be quite fun.”
According to Bebenzien, the grown-up collection targets customers in their late 20s to early 40s who have ties to skate culture. The line ranges from pocket T-shirts to corduroy running shorts and cuffed beanies. While most of the collection retails from $ 800 to $ 1,200, jackets have an opening price point of $ 400, T-shirts will retail for about $ 48 and tops and bottoms will start at $ 180.
Other than Bergdorf Goodman and Union in Los Angeles, the collection will only be available at Noah’s e-commerce site and New York City store, which are both set to open in October.

Cynthia Steffe Launches C.S. Roberts Collection

Cynthia Steffe is making another comeback.
The designer, who previously built a $ 30 million-plus wholesale business selling her contemporary line to stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, is getting back into the contemporary sportswear game with a new collection called C.S. Roberts.
Steffe, who lost the rights to her name to Bernard Chaus Inc. which still manufactures the Cynthia Steffe line, is married to Rick Roberts and will use his last name in the new venture. Steffe continues to be known as Cynthia Steffe personally and professionally.
The collection, which launches for spring, is novelty-driven. “It’s very much what my signature has always been. It’s soft and colorful and probably where I would have taken the Cynthia Steffe collection,” said Steffe in an interview in New York. There’s a large emphasis on dresses and blouses, as well as bottoms to work with them. “It’s lifestyle-driven and has an ease to it,” she said.
Steffe said her core customer is a woman 35 to 50 years old who loves fashion, doesn’t work and likes to shop. She is targeting department and specialty stores with the line and will show the collection to buyers next week and at Coterie this month.

Twitter Halo Launches With Tommy Hilfiger

TOMMY 360: Twitter is releasing a new video feature and Tommy Hilfiger will be the first to use it. Twitter Halo will let models, editors and bloggers capture 360-degree videos with a multicamera device backstage during and after the brand’s show on Monday.

Former Model Neha Kapur Launches Hensely Line

With her new line Hensely, Neha Kapur hopes to bring a sense of relaxed luxury to the Los Angeles fashion scene. A former model and Miss India 2006, Kapur, who is married to “The Big Bang Theory” actor Kunal Nayyar, said her first collection for spring was inspired by the movement and fluidity of dance. The silks and linens are cut to drape gracefully on the body and most of the floor-length gowns and wide-leg pants are meant to be worn with flats.
Born and raised in New Delhi, Kapur, 32, studied fashion design at Pearl Academy. She was discovered by Elite Model Management at age 18 and became one of India’s best-known models, making the covers of Vogue, Elle and L’Officiel and walking in every New Delhi Fashion Week for the past 14 years. “I think that’s where my desire to become a designer was conceived. Every time a new season rolled out, these designers had great ideas to express,” she said. “Walking the runway was actually the real teacher — knowing the fall of a garment, how it fits you, how the sleeves should fall, how does it photograph.”

Fuzzi Launches Swimwear Line

DIVING IN: Fuzzi, the Italy-based, Aeffe SpA-owned knitwear company founded by Adele Bacchiani Fuzzi in 1954 — perhaps best known for producing knits for Jean Paul Gaultier in a collaboration that began in 1983 and lasted more than 30 years — is in expansion mode. Since the closing of Gaultier’s rtw business in September 2014, Fuzzi has made a name for itself with an expanded women’s collection that goes beyond its signature printed tulle knitwear. And for spring 2016, to build upon its lineup of dresses and separates, the company will launch its first swimwear line.
Marianne Hicks, who served as the senior vice president of Jean Paul Gaultier North America for over 20 years and joined Fuzzi in 2012, serves as the collection’s New York-based creative director. Hicks works closely with Anna Maria Fuzzi, the daughter of Adele Bacchiani Fuzzi, at the brand’s Cattolica, Italy-based factory, where the team continues to expand the scope of the collection. “Having developed Gaultier’s swim business from the beginning, I was very saddened when Gaultier shut his business,” said Hicks. “I always loved swimwear, had established relationships with the stores and knew that it was an area that I wanted to eventually explore with Fuzzi.

News in Brief: Underworld Health Organization Launches Initiative To Improve Incubus Immortality Rate

THE SECOND CIRCLE, HELL—Affirming the need to reverse the trend after several millennia of discouraging numbers, officials from the Underworld Health Organization unveiled a new initiative Thursday to improve Hades’ incubus immortality rate. “It is simply unacceptable in this day and age that so many of our demon spawn never get the chance to metamorphose into evil spirits who spend all of eternity raping human women as they sleep,” said UHO spokesman Belphegor, adding that in certain lower circles of damnation, as many as 80 out of every 10,000 hatchlings do not go on to stalk the Earth for the rest of time. “If our initiative is successful, we can finally put an end to the tragic and all-too-common occurrence of a bright young incubus dying before he reaches his 1,000th birthday.” After laying out the plan, Belphegor reportedly avoided a question on its projected budget by …

Anthony M. Romano, chief executive officer of Destination Maternity, added that the label is “honored to be selected as the exclusive maternity purveyor for Harrods.”

Elizabeth Fillmore Launches Evening Collection for Resort 2016

Bridal designer Elizabeth Fillmore called her just-launched, 14-piece evening collection “Bohemian Aristocrat,” but these resort looks would be more aptly titled “Boudoir Aristocrat.” The designer chose silhouettes that have made her bridal business so successful — the best of which have a decidedly lingerie appeal. She showed lovely vintage lace trims, bed jackets (or capelets) in white and palest blue, Chantilly lace peonies over silk crepe, and a floating empire-waist silk slip gown in sky-blue and black.
“I want these clothes to be effortless and feminine with some edge,” said Fillmore. That bit of “edge” surfaced in a group of sexy, wildflower-printed black silk jacquard looks, especially the poofy high-and-low skirt and black lace poet blouse.

Anna Sui Launches Swimwear With Onis Design Group

Anna Sui will be among the new names at Miami Swim Week. Sui signed a license with Onis Design Group for a 35-piece capsule collection of  bikinis, one-pieces, and cover-ups. It will be sold at department and specialties stories, retailing between $ 98 and $ 365. Sui wanted the range to be “classic Anna” and divided the lineup into two themes, one in red-and-black with ruffles, cherries and stars; the other riffing on her signature butterfly patterns and preference for purple. Last spring, Sui did a collaboration with O’Neill and has previously included a few swimwear pieces in her runway collections, but this is her first license for a complete swim line.

ElektroCouture Launches in Time for Berlin Fashion Week

TECH-TO-WEAR: Berlin-based Start-up ElektroCouture launched its first ready-to-wear collection on Asos Marketplace online on the eve of Berlin Fashion Week on Monday.
The fashion technology house established in 2014 launched a collection of 10 pieces. The selection includes a jacket with lights created in collaboration with Polish fashion designer Mia Manu and a glowing scarf with a warming feature that is nominated for the recently launched Wearable IT/Fashion Technology prize by the Berlin Senate.
It’s the first ready-to-wear fashion tech collection available via e-tail, the founder claimed. “There is no ready-to-wear fashion tech at the moment, but the fact that Google has teamed up with Levi’s to create [a] wearable jeans is an important signal, the time is right for it,” said Lisa Lang, founder and chief executive officer of the fashion start-up. “However, the practical considerations are at the very beginning: are the clothes wearable on an everyday base, are they pretty, are they cleanable?”
ElektroCouture will present designs at the Microsoft Digital Eatery and will be part of the Fashion Tech Hub by Premium Exhibitions during Fashion Week on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Chris Christie Launches Bid to Become New President of FIFA, Citing Ability to Build Bridges

2015-06-03-1433346583-1567787-christieresized2.jpg

Photographer: Luigi Novi

In a dramatic week for world football, Sepp Blatter, the President of FIFA, gave himself a red card and announced his resignation, and Chris Christie declared his goal of replacing him.

At a hastily arranged news conference in a Dunkin Donuts, Governor Christie said:

“I have always believed that I would make a great President, so for the benefit of the people of New Jersey, America and the world, I will be formally announcing my candidacy for the Presidency of FIFA as soon as I’m done eating. “

As reporters collectively choked on their frosted maple crèmes, Christie continued:

“I have to tell you guys that I would be the perfect person to replace Blatter.

I appreciate that a deep knowledge of football is essential for this job, and I have it! I’ve been watching the Cowboys, the Giants and the Eagles my entire life and I will bring all that know-how to the table for the benefit of American football fans throughout the world.

I also hear that running FIFA is like running the mafia. That’s awesome because I’m the Governor of New Jersey for Christ sakes, so enough said about my qualifications in that regard.

Additionally, I know that the new head of FIFA must have a lot of experience dealing with the US Department of Justice in ongoing criminal investigations. Well, guess what? I’ve been doing that for well over a year now!

Most importantly, I believe FIFA really needs someone to build all the bridges that have been burnt during this entire fiasco. And as I’m sure you will agree, whenever anyone thinks of bridges nowadays, they immediately think of me!”

After his announcement, Christie did not immediately respond to questions from reporters, citing an urgent need to finish his doughnut.

In further developments, other republican FIFA presidential hopefuls also declared their candidacies, notably Rick Perry, Scott Walker and Sarah Palin — the latter of whom called the decision to give the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, “the worst supreme court ruling since Roe v. Wade.”

No matter who else throws their hat into the ring, Christie is likely be the most appealing candidate to FIFA sponsors such as McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s, Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken — particularly given his extraordinary rates of consumption.

However, when contacted for comment, Irma Crook, one of the few remaining executives at FIFA, said: “Chris Christie wants to become the new President of FIFA? Oh my God, quick! Let’s get Sepp Blatter back!”

Zoë Jordan Launches Knitlab Collection

BACK TO THE LAB: London designer Zoë Jordan is aiming to simplify women’s wardrobes with her new seasonless, capsule cashmere collection, called Knitlab, which is set to bow at retailers including Saks Fifth Avenue in the U.S. and Harrods in London in June.
The range is made up of six wool- and cashmere-mix pieces that run from heavy ribbed tunic-length sweaters with cut-out details at the shoulders and arms, to cable knits and short-sleeve sweaters. The styles will be sold year-round, and are debuting in shades such as gray, camel, black and white, some with a silver foiling effect. Each piece takes its name from a scientist — Galileo and Darwin are among the styles — as an homage to the experimental mood of the Knitlab name.
To mark the launch, Jordan has tapped seven women whom she describes as “inspiring,” and has shot them wearing the collection “in their environment,” she said. Among them are music producer Catherine Marks, pictured in a studio, taxidermy artist Polly Morgan shot in her workshop and photographer Lily Bertrand-Webb, pictured in a skate park. The images, shot by photographer Iringo Demeter, will appear on Jordan’s Web site, at zoe-jordan.com/knitlab.

Spotify launches today on PS4 and PS3 with PlayStation Music

Spotify launches today on PS4 and PS3 with PlayStation MusicMusic playback on PlayStation consoles gets a boost today with the arrival of PlayStation Music featuring Spotify, which replaces Sony's Music Unlimited service. The app is launching in 41 markets worldwide, allowing most of Spotify's 60 million users — three-fourths of whom use the ad-supported free version of the service — to stream music while they play games on their PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4. You can use PlayStation Music completely for free: It doesn't require a PlayStation Plus membership, and you can use it with a free Spotify account or Spotify Premium, which costs $ 9.99 per month. Representatives for Sony and Spotify told Polygon during a demo of the PS4 app last week that the two companies worked together closely on PlayStation Music, and it shows: "Seamless" is the best word we can think of to describe the experience.

Vanessa Seward Launches Her New Label With a Salute to French Sophistication

Vanessa Seward fall 2015

The Paris shows have been dotted with designer debuts left, right, and center—some ruffling more feathers than others. And framed by the chinoiserie wallpaper of the Mona Bismarck American Center today, the French designer Vanessa Seward paraded the first looks of her eponymous collection—an evolution of a partnership with A.P.C. that, as Vogue announced last September, will roll out worldwide with new stores and a full, ladylike wardrobe.

Back then, Seward was talking about “accessible luxury,” an oxymoronic sort of catchphrase that the designer shed a little light on with today’s straightforward outing—one that channeled her polished, demure aesthetic into a full range, her first since she left Azzaro in 2011. What does that catchphrase translate to? Well, it seems a quiet, flirty sophistication is at play in Seward’s current vision, one in which quality materials meet her learned, feminine design sensibility without falling heavy on the pocket.

It helps, too, that her nostalgic viewpoint falls conveniently on trend, with nods to seventies softness leading her daywear separates with flared shapes in floaty printed crepe. She balanced those with more tailored pieces, like a pencil skirt in smooth claret leather, and the omnipresent raw denim she cut as a vented caban or a trim suit. Her high-waisted jeans (a signature) were tapered to a bell-bottom and came monogrammed with each model’s name, one of several sweet touches like four-leaf-clover crepe and a flash of bronze lamé that lightened up the decidedly fundamental, pragmatic nature of her first offering.

Evening looks touched on that Azzaro glamour: She split a black column up the thigh with a silk bow, and described the white silk blouses under black tailoring as “Parisian gaucho” (a tribute to her Argentinian roots). Seward isn’t trying to change the face of fashion with her nonchalant designs, but neither are the leagues of women who will add her creations to their chic, understated, working wardrobes.

Beyonce Launches Vegan Home Delivery Meal Service In Hopes You’ll Feel #Flawless

If a diva is a female version of a hustler, then, logically speaking, a vegan diva is the female version of a vegan hustler.

The clean-eating Beyonce herself recently partnered with her personal trainer, exercise physiologist Marco Borges, to launch the 22 Days Nutrition plant-based home delivery meal service. The service offers three meal plans, where you can sign up to receive anywhere from one to three meals a day for 22 days delivered to your door each week. A full three-meals-a-day package will cost you a total of $ 629.79, including shipping of $ 19.95. According to the website, all of the meals are gluten-free, soy-free and organic. Each meal is “a perfect balance of protein, carbohydrates and fat with limited salt and sugar.”

22days

The meal plan busts the myth that vegans struggle to get enough protein in their diets. “In reality, eating a variety of beans, nuts, seeds and grains will give your body the protein it needs to keep energy levels up and build and keep muscle tone,” the website says.

Twenty-two days of veganism may seem random, but the time span is a conscious choice of Borges and Beyonce. “The program’s philosophy is based on the concept that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit and on the 22nd day you are well on your way to forming new habits,” says a statement. The meal plan is targeted to those who want to lose weight, cook less or simply “experience a whole new way of eating.”

“I am so grateful that I took the challenge and credit Marco with leading by example,” Beyonce says in the statement. “He is the most energetic person I know and it’s all because of his decision to live a healthy lifestyle. He came up with a great program to get people motivated to make better nutritional choices. All you have to do is try. If I can do it, anyone can.”

Beyonce’s first public stint with veganism was in December 2013, when she and her husband Jay Z adopted the plant-based diet for 22 days. Jay Z referred to the challenge as “a spiritual and physical cleanse.”

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

M.Patmos x Ryan McGinness

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

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

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

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

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

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