Canadian Activewear Brand Lolë to Open L.A. Headquarters, Release Men’s

When the women and men who wore Quiksilver and Roxy in their teens and 20s grow up, what do they wear? Former Quiksilver president Bernard Mariette, who’s been chief executive officer of Canadian activewear brand Lolë since leaving the surf giant in 2008, is betting that he knows.
“I know these ladies, I’ve followed them my whole career. The Roxy girl who was 15 to 25 years old 25 years ago is our customer now. They’re not teenagers anymore; fashion is not as important to them as style,” said Mariette.
His company is now in a position to cater to them even more, and that includes the men. Coalision Inc., the parent company of Lolë and Paradox, has secured $ 18 million in cash financing from existing backers and shareholders Simon Equity Partners and Pelican Investment Fund, a management-based fund owned by Mariette.
Mariette, a well-known yoga business guru who worked alongside Quiksilver founder Bob McKnight from 1993 to 2008, plans to break with conventional activewear brands with the recent injection of capital.

A look from Lolë’s spring outerwear collection. 

“Our priorities are developing in the U.S. market, launching men’s and developing internationally,” said Mariette. “It’s an exciting time because we have the financial resources for hiring new players

Big Sean To Open Movie Theater In Detroit

Credit: Nicky Nelson/WENN.com 

Big Sean continues to put on for his city. He plans to open a cinema in his home town.

According to The Detroit News the G.O.O.D. Music artist has partnered with Emagine Entertainment to build out a high-tech entertainment facility. Early reports state that it will house a dozen screens and additional space for “intimate” performances.

Emagine CEO Anthony LaVerde explained how the project came together. “Sean and his team reached out to us about six months ago, discussing Sean’s vision for a theater in Downtown Detroit and his desire to give back to the community and really be a part of the Detroit renaissance. This was his vision in how he can accomplish that.”

Sean detailed the project to The Detroit Free Press as an initiative with the aim of helping advance the Motor City’s economic and social status. ““We want to do something revolutionary with it. We don’t want to just make it a movie theater, traditionally. We also want it to be a hub for entertainment for the whole community. We want people to have an incentive to go the extra miles, to travel into Detroit.”

Emagine has reportedly already purchased land in Detroit’s midtown area to house the theater. It is slated for a 2020 launch.

Earlier this week the I Decided rapper surprised students from the Detroit Public Schools Community District during their trip to see Black Panther.

Alexander McQueen, Givenchy to Open South Coast Plaza Boutiques

Alexander McQueen and Givenchy are the latest luxury brands to sign leases at South Coast Plaza. They are to join more than 250 boutiques at the retail center in late spring, and the McQueen boutique will be the only Orange County location for the brand (there is a store on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles), while the Givenchy boutique is a Southern California exclusive (it’s one brand that’s missing on Rodeo Drive).
Family-run South Coast Plaza, which the late Henry Segerstrom built into one of the most profitable retail centers in the world, with annual sales topping $ 1 billion, is already home to Dior, Tiffany & Co., Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Harry Winston, Hermès and The Webster. Segerstrom was many times the first to bring European brands such as Courreges to the States. SCP this year celebrated its 50th anniversary.

The McQueen boutique will be located on Level 2 of the center in the Nordstrom Wing, while the Givenchy boutique will be located on Level 2 near Jewel Court.

Future of Shopping?: Amazon’s First Cashierless Automated Store Open For Biz

A supermarket without cashiers? Sounds insane right? Thanks to Amazon and it’s first Amazon Go store it is now a reality. The tech giant officially launched their first “cashierless” brick-and-mortar store today in Seattle.

The stores opening serves as the first phase of the experiment to see if these stores will become the wave of the future in terms of shopping. We know you’re wondering how in the world will Amazon keep tabs on what exactly is going on in the store? How will they make sure nobody is going the five-finger discount route? The first Amazon Go store will use a network of cameras and sensors to monitor shoppers and what they pick up and once they leave they will be billed for whatever they walk out of the store via the Amazon Go smartphone app.

A high tech Whole Foods basically, well, that sounds very convenient.

Now with any new idea, there are definitely bugs that have to be worked out. During the beta testing of the tech back in early 2017, Amazon was still trying to hammer out a few things. Reports of the computers that run the store “wigging out” because to0 many people entered the store, items being moved around the shelves or the customers moving around too fast for the sensors to track them.  All issues that Amazon more than likely had no serious worries about when it came time to open up the store.

There were other problems though Amazon according to a Reuters report, such as “recognizing customers that have similar body types” or children as well as adults causing chaos by picking up items and placing them on different shelves.

Now just imagine something like this in the hood? It was a struggle just to get self-checkout in your local supermarket. One thing is for sure you see one of these joints spring up you can officially say your neighborhood has been gentrified. To see exactly how an Amazon Go store works in action peep the video below. Let us know in the comment section if you are ready for “cashierless” supermarket in your neighborhood.

Li Edelkoort to Open Paris Gallery to Spotlight Artists, New Voices

WATCH THIS SPACE: Having first opened a private art salon in Paris more than three decades ago, Trend Union founder Li Edelkoort will soon take her career full circle by unveiling a public design gallery in her company’s headquarters.
Set to open its doors Jan. 18 at 30 Boulevard Saint-Jacques, the space will showcase design and arts and crafts — “what deserves to be shown collected and cherished at this moment in time,” according to the trend forecaster. To that end, a Heartwear pop-up shop will be among the planned events.
Created in 1993 by Edelkoort and some of her fashion designer friends, Heartwear is a nonprofit that collaborates with artisans by helping them scale up their creations without compromising their design integrity, culture or environment that they live and work in. With the assistance of department stores and magazines, Heartwear develops high-level goods with broader distribution. The nonprofit’s aim is to create a lasting connection with a collective or region. Khadi cotton from India and indigo-colored textiles from Benin are two of the projects that have been executed. To try to help the specific regions become self sustainable, profits are reinvested in those where the artists are based.

Dover Street Market Hosts Festive Open House

HOLIDAY INSTALLATIONS: With Christmas approaching, Dover Street Market hosted an event to celebrate with a series of signature installations from various brands and designers, and marked Comme des Garçons’ Re/tartan Re/energy Holiday campaign launch.
London-based stylists Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall, co-editors in chief of brand new magazine-cum-posterbook Chaos SixtyNine, held a “teenage bachelor bedroom” themed installation in the basement. “We wanted it to be a space where you could put up all the posters from the magazine freely. That seemed naturally to be a teenage bedroom,” said Lyall.
The space was also used to launch the Chaos Bruv Club Collection, as well as special merchandise. “The Bruv Club is like men’s suiting, racer graphics, a bit skate and a bit gentleman,” said Stockdale. “It’s a nice mix of the two. Bruv Club to us is all-inclusive: boys, girls, anyone up for a bit of fun.”
While the second issue of the biannual title won’t be out until at least May of next year, Charlotte and Katie have collaborations up their sleeves — the first of which will be with Hayden Kays, a British artist influenced by Fifties pop art. It will include custom graphics printed onto Chaos phone cases. They will be available

Sarah Jessica Parker to Open New York Pop-up Shop

To be located at 640 Fifth Avenue with an entrance at 52nd Street, the 1,600-square-foot shop will sell an assortment of shoes — including styles reissued from the brand’s 2014 launch collection.
SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker’s line of little black dresses and handbags will also be on sale.
The shop is to be open on Black Friday, Nov. 24, and remain open through Dec. 3. Parker is expected to periodically drop into the store to greet shoppers.
“Having a home in New York for our SJP Collection has been only a seeming fantasy since we launched our brand almost four years ago.​ So it is with unbridled excitement that we share the news that we have indeed found that home, right off Fifth Avenue, in the heart of Midtown,” Parker said.
The actress, producer and designer’s business partner, George Malkemus, added: ”The very idea of the ultimate New York girl opening a pop-up and, on top of it, one opposite the famous 21 Club, has me pinching myself again and again.

A 1,300-square-foot Hawaii boutique will open at Honolulu’s Ala Moana Center on Nov. 7 followed by a 1,500 square-foot Wynn Las Vegas Resort boutique on Nov. 13. The brand currently has nine boutiques worldwide, including London, Hong Kong, Beijing, Macau, Mumbai and New Delhi.

MeUndies continues to test its brand at retail.
The Culver City, Calif.-based online business, which sells underwear and other basics, opens its temporary shop Wednesday evening at Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto in a space totaling 1,729 square feet.
“Our first pop-up will offer a glimpse of what’s to come for MeUndies retail spaces, which will allow us to enhance our membership program,” MeUndies head of retail and strategy Andres Engel said.
MeUndies, started in 2011, lets shoppers purchase items online at their convenience or sign up for a monthly membership.
The store is designed to reward members who shop the brand in real life with special discounts and first dibs at new designs. There will also be space allocated to members only for special events.
The model is somewhat in the vein of other digital brands that have entered physical retail where the focus is on boosting the member experience, while also deepening companies’ understanding of the customer base. Fabletics, which started out as an online activewear brand, benefits from a membership model that can offer those who opt into the program a more enhanced in-store experience.

Erica Tanov to Open First L.A. Boutique at The Row DTLA

Berkeley-based designer Erica Tanov will open her first Los Angeles boutique at The Row DTLA with regular hours starting next month. The 650-square-foot space, which will be open on Sundays starting this week, will feature an assortment of Tanov’s clothing, accessories and home goods, alongside a select group of independent designers and including Bay Area painter Emily Payne, Oregon ceramicist Notary Ceramics and furniture craftsman Russell Fong.
“It wasn’t on my radar to open a store in Los Angeles until Runyon Group approached me,” said Tanov of the shopping center developers behind Platform in Culver City. “When I saw that like-minded independent brands were also there, including Bay Area companies like Mission Workshop and Tartine, I was intrigued.”
Tanov said the “crumbling, industrial” vibe of the complex, the former American Apparel factories, which were built in 1918, appealed to her sensibility as well. “It was in some way very luxurious,” she said of the soaring ceilings with exposed beams and raw concrete floors. She added her own vintage fixtures and display cases and an enormous antique door she had in storage. Black powder-coated rolling racks completed the look.
Collaborations with California-based artists distinguish Tanov’s work, including fine art photographer Todd Hido, who produced

‘Christian Dior’ Exhibition to Open at Royal Ontario Museum

Dior’s 70th anniversary celebration continues. Beginning Nov. 25, the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto will present “Christian Dior,” a new exhibition looking at the founder’s tenure from 1947 to 1957.
Presented by Holt Renfrew, the exhibition is curated by Dr. Alexandra Palmer, author of the 2009 book “Dior: A New Look, a New Enterprise,” who serves as the museum’s costume curator.

“It is safe to say that few people have had as great an influence on shaping the modern aesthetic as Christian Dior,” asserted Josh Basseches, director and ceo of the Royal Ontario Museum. “His standing among contemporary fashion designers remains central to this day. As the House of Dior celebrates its milestone anniversary, there is no better time for the ROM to share our extraordinary collection of Dior couture with audiences.”
The exhibition features 40 designs and is arranged by day (coats, suits and day dresses); late afternoon to early evening (cocktails and dinner dresses), and grand occasion (ball and formal gowns). Many of the pieces were worn by prominent Toronto socialites from the time period.

“Christian Dior’s revolutionary fashions captured the excitement of postwar modernity and have stood the test of time,” Palmer said. “This was made possible with the work of numerous industries and

Tokidoki Plans to Open 10 to 15 Hotels in China in the Next Five Years

TOKIDOKI’S VACANCY IN CHINA: Devotees of Tokidoki, the overly cute character lifestyle brand, will in future be able to book a room in a Tokidoki-adorned hotel.
Cofounders Pooneh Mohajer and Simone Legno plan to open 10 to 15 Tokidoki hotels in China in the next five years, with the first one expected to be welcoming guests by the end of next year. Chasing young professionals who favor ultra-clean design with touches of art, the company is laying the groundwork for its own affordable luxury hotels. The Tokidoki branded hotel will feature its own designed decor, including hospitality products that will be available for purchase at the hotel. Legno, creative director, said, “It is a 360-degree experience as a designer. I have a graphic design background so I will apply that to stationery for the Tokidoki hotel, as well as a new logo.” (His fine art will also be sprinkled throughout the hotel.)
Tokidoki’s interpretation of Kartell “Ghost” chairs will be in the hotel rooms. The company just unveiled the $ 480 Louis Ghost chair and the $ 185 Lou Lo one for children, reimagining the iconic seats that Philippe Starck designed for the company. Legno said, “We will promote it for sure. Why not?

The Wall Group to Open Paris Office

Talent agency The Wall Group is set to open a Paris office next week in the midst of the city’s fashion week. The agency, which represents hairstylists, makeup artist and fashion stylists, has a roster that includes Danilo, Renato Campora, Ben Skervin, Hung Vanngo, Frank B, Alice Lane, Kate Young, Karla Welch and Elizabeth Stewart.
“Our decision to expand into Paris is a logical next step for our business,” said founder Brooke Wall. “We’ve worked with European talent, brands and fashion houses for years from afar, but demand continues to increase as the focus on international red carpets, film festivals and fashion presentations intensifies. We see a lot of opportunity to grow our services in-market and are excited about this evolution.”
Wall founded TWG in 2000 in New York and began with a roster of behind-the-scenes talent focused on the traditional fashion and editorial industry. TWG opened its Los Angeles office in 2003 to addresses the small but burgeoning group of artists focused on celebrity and red carpet styling. Today, those artists are among those signing lucrative consulting and designing gigs, such as Welch’s recent tie-up with Hanes, for which Justin Bieber was the poster boy.
In 2015, The Wall Group was acquired

Marie France Van Damme to Open First U.S. Store in Beverly Hills

Hong Kong-based resortwear designer Marie France Van Damme is set to open her ninth boutique, and first in the U.S., on Sept. 25 in Beverly Hills. Located in the Peninsula hotel, there are two stores side-by-side totaling 464 square feet.
Van Damme, a Canadian national, said she searched for years to find the appropriate home in Beverly Hills, though soaring rents on Rodeo Drive prevented her from going there. The new shop aims to mix East and West. It will also serve as a press and celebrity showroom as she seeks to develop ties in Hollywood. Most recently, Eva Longoria wore Marie France Van Damme while on vacation and the brand is favored by celebrities such as Beyoncé, Heidi Klum, Cameron Diaz, Olivia Palermo, Christina Hendricks, and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
“Foot traffic is an important factor for my retail locations, and I felt that the constant stream of guests in and out of the Peninsula would provide the right visibility for the brand,” said Van Damme.

Sloane Stephens Wins US Open, Black Twitter Celebrates

Sloane Stephens has captured the hearts of tennis fans with her US Open win over Madison Keys on Saturday at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City. Stephens’ win was also celebrated in grand detail on Black Twitter, with many on the social media network crowning the rising star one of the game’s new leaders in the years to come.

Stephens, 24, won the final match 6-3, 6-0 over Keys, 22, which signaled a possible new era in women’s tennis as the dominance of the Williams sisters begins to slightly wane. The U.S. tennis program has been trying to develop its young core and Stephens until now, didn’t appear to be on that level. With the US Open singles title win, the Plantation, Florida native might be on her way to leading a mighty renaissance.

Black Twitter’s joy was hard to contain and since Saturday, the adoration has been growing nonstop. We’ve captured the best of the reactions to Sloane Stephens’ US Open win below and on the following pages.

An Open Letter To My Ex-Husband: Thanks For Loving Me And My New Partner

A year after her divorce, Neecey Kirby has nothing but gratitude for her ex-husband Kris. Though the pair split up in 2014 after five years as a couple, they’ve stayed friends for the sake of their two young boys. Looking back, Kirby says that spending her late 20s and early 30s with Kris changed her life entirely for the better. 

Below, the mom of two, who lives in Memphis, Tennessee, thanks her ex-husband for all he’s done for her and their kids.

 

I’ll never be the ex-wife at the table bashing her ex-husband, hoping everyone hears it. In fact, I’m the ex-wife thanking her ex-husband. I look back now at the time we were together and realize it laid the groundwork for who I am today. 

Kris, you and I have been divorced for a year this fall. We separated first, went through marriage counseling and tried our best but it didn’t work.

While married, we fought against a lot of things people told us would lead to us failing as a couple. While actively proving them wrong, we found other hurdles no one warned us about. You’re 10 years my senior and deal with mood swings, but you always try to better yourself. I’m younger, sharp-tongued and bullheaded in my beliefs. We’re opposites, but you showed me beauty in a life I had never lived.

I’ll never regret the years we were together. I created a home for myself with you, when I never really had much of one before. You helped me grow, you showed me love and compassion even in our differences. We had our own family drama, of course, but you you truly made me understand what it means to be part of a family.

Family, for me, would start with us creating our sons. We have two of the most beautiful children. Thank you for them. I see you in them every day. We had them fifteen months apart and though we hardly slept and were a bundle of nerves most of the time, we kept running and tried to do our best as parents.

We tried so hard — and depended on each other so much to fulfill our individual needs — I think we ran ourselves dry. And with everything in me, I’m sorry that I wasn’t in the marriage any longer. Yes, I know the reasons we didn’t work out. But I hold no resentment.

Thank you for loving my new partner, Sarah, simply because you know I love her. I know that your ex-wife finding love in an alternative lifestyle is hard and probably brought about so many unanswered questions for you, but when she came into my life, I was finally figuring out who I could be. You gave me confidence and helped shape the person I am today. She fell for everything you helped build. And I thank you for that.

Thank you for harboring no ill will toward my happiness, or my decision to let Sarah take an active role in our beautiful sons’ lives. We created those boys when we were strong as a couple and they’re growing to be the best parts of all three of us daily. You’ve helped me keep their lives so joyous and safe in a way I never experienced growing up. I trust that when you find love again, our sons will benefit from having the best parts of four parents in their lives.

Thank you for co-parenting with me. I never have to wonder if your heart is in it, and you trust that everything I do is for our sons.

Lastly, thank you for who you are. You were the only road I could have taken to lead me where I am today. You are responsible for so much of my happiness and for that, I thank you the most.

— Neecey

Jerome Dreyfuss to Open First London Unit on Corner of Bruton Street

JEROME’S NEW HOME: French accessories designer Jerome Dreyfuss will open his first stand-alone store in London later this month, on the corner of Bruton Street and Berkeley Square.
The store, at 20 Berkeley Square, spans 1,296 square feet, with interiors designed by Franklin Azzi. The design was inspired by Dreyfuss’ love of modernism and, more specifically, Brutalism, as well as the creations of Carlo Scarpa.
Materials include different types of concrete and oak. “I have always been fascinated by London, an amazing city in constant renewal, forever changing, forever daring. And on a personal note, I love the English people and their humor. I think it fits exactly with the spirit of the brand,” he said.
The new space, formerly occupied by Zenith Bank, is a few steps away from Dreyfuss’ wife’s Isabel Marant’s store, and will be his eighth stand-alone shop. He also sells through shops-in-shop worldwide and at stores including Harrods, Liberty, Matches, Net-a-porter.com, and Le Bon Marché.

Fetty Wap’s Album Expected To Open At #1; Drake & Future’s Sales Numbers Drop

(AllHipHop News) Fetty Wap is set to add a #1 album to his list of accomplishments this year. Billboard reports the New Jersey representative is looking to push around 110,000 equivalent album units of his self-titled LP. That should be enough to land Fetty in the pole position on the Billboard 200 album chart.

[ALSO READ: Fetty Wap’s Chart Domination Includes ‘Hot 100’ Milestone Not Achieved In A Decade]

According to HitsDailyDouble, Fetty Wap only sold close to 60,000 pure albums. The rest of the 110,000 units came from track equivalent album and streaming equivalent album totals.

Last week’s top project came from Drake and Future. The duo’s What A Time To Be Alive is looking to fall to #2 on the album chart. The joint effort opened with 375,000 units (334,000 pure album sales).

The equivalent album units estimates for WATTBA have not been released yet, but the traditional album sales for the mixtape are nearing 60,000 copies. That would be an 80% drop in sales in one week.

Galeries Lafayette to Open Eataly

BUONGIORNO PARIS: Groupe Galeries Lafayette has signed an exclusive franchise agreement with Eataly for France.
The retailer said on Thursday it will open the first French flagship of the Italian gastronomic concept in 2018 in a 43,055-square-foot building that it owns in Paris.
That’s located next to its BHV Marais department store, on Rue Sainte Croix de la Bretonnerie, which is a stone’s throw from the future Galeries Lafayette Foundation that is due to open to the public in late 2016, as reported.
The culinary mecca marks yet another new project carried out by the group in the Marais neighborhood, following the renovation of the main BHV Marais building, completed in 2014, and the expansion of the men’s offer with the opening of dedicated outposts.
Eataly, which will include a restaurant and takeaway products, is to complement the food offering developed by Groupe Galeries Lafayette under its Lafayette Gourmet concept, the company said.

An Open Letter To My Ex-Husband: Thank You

Shortly after writer Shannon Ferguson’s divorce was finalized in July, she sat down and wrote a letter to her ex, a man to whom she was married for almost two years. Below, Ferguson, who works in digital marketing and runs the dating advice blog The Love Hawk, shares the bittersweet letter with us.

Dear ex-husband,  

It wasn’t long ago that I was getting into my wedding dress, walking down the aisle and saying the vows I intended to keep forever. It wasn’t long ago that I felt like the most loved woman on the planet because my best friend was by my side and promising to stand by me until the end of time. It wasn’t long ago but it feels like an eternity has passed since then.    

It’s been a whirlwind of trying to understand what happened — of trying to make sense of why it had to end. The year that’s slipped away has left me with so many unanswered questions but at the end of each day, I remind myself to be thankful.

So, I thank you. I thank you for our good moments and for the times you stood by and protected me. I thank you for the laughter we always shared and for the memories we created in our short time as a couple and our even longer friendship. I thank you for the flowers, the cards, the little things you did. And I thank you because I know in those moments, you were happy, too.

I thank you for leaving when you did. Even though I’m still trying to understand why, it has made me a stronger person and helped me realize that maybe some things aren’t meant to last forever. 

Thank you for not prolonging the hardship and forcing me to face the world on my own while I’m still young, while my ambition and desire is still strong. Divorce has made me more independent and helped me see the world in a new light, and for that, I thank you.

I thank you for all the lessons you’ve taught me over the last decade. You taught me that love really does exist and that it can live in someone’s heart no matter the circumstance, distance or boundaries. You loved me in spite of many circumstances and for that, I’m grateful. And you taught me that something even greater can come from the spark of friendship. You were patient and you believed, and for that, I thank you.

Lastly, you taught me that sometimes even the strongest fires burn out. You taught me that even good marriages can fade into nothing and you taught me to be more careful with my heart in the future. You taught me that maybe love isn’t truly enough to keep a marriage afloat — because God knows I loved you and I always figured you felt the same.

So without hate or animosity, I look back at the past three years since our first dance as husband and wife and all I can do is thank you. Thank you for the good times, for the hard times, for the laughter and the tears. Thank you for helping to shape the strong person I am today and for being a big part of my life for a small slice of time.

I wish you well.

— Shannon

Leonard Lauder Throws Open House for New York Fashion Week

Leonard Lauder and his bride threw a party marking the beginning of New York Fashion Week — and everybody came. Everyone in the magazine business, that is.
Held at the Fifth Avenue residence Lauder shares with his wife of eight months, Judith Glickman Lauder, the soiree drew Hearst’s David Carey and Michael Clinton, Condé Nast’s Bob Sauerberg, Allure’s Linda Wells, Harper’s Bazaar’s Glenda Bailey and Kendall Jenner (in Tom Ford, natch), to name just a few.
“Why are we doing this?” Leonard Lauder intoned from the terrace staircase. “We love New York! For those of you that think you want to move to Jersey City — forget it. New York is the center of the world and we’re glad to have you here.” In addition to cocktails on the Lauders’ two-tiered terrace, representatives of the New York City Landmarks Conservancy were available to point out everything from the residence where “Rosemary’s Baby” was filmed to the field where William and Gary Lauder played soccer, through powerful telescopes. The evening also included a private showing of Lauder’s extensive Cubist collection, which is willed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Photographs inside the residence were off-limits, however: “My insurance company will then send two copies of the bill: one

An Open Letter to My Future Parents In-Law

The night we booked our dream wedding venue, my fiance’s mother called in a panic because she forgot to mail their birthday gift to me. After chatting a few minutes, the bright pink elephant in the room was broached: Would they attend our wedding?
The heartbreaking conversation that followed boiled down to they wouldn’t attend because they “follow the Bible.”

Days later my birthday card arrived, enclosed with a gift card, and signed “Love, Russ & Pat.” Every speck of glitter that fell from it mocked us. Over 17 years they had built such a convincing facade of acceptance. With painful clarity, I realized whenever they had cryptically said they were “praying for us,” it wasn’t for a safe drive home or for Tim and his brother to make amends. They never outwardly said it before, but their “love the sinner/hate the sin” mentality became obvious. Which is why their gift and the card ended up in a return envelope with the following letter.

July 20, 2015

Dear Russ & Pat:

Please, don’t discard this letter without reading it through. I write not to attack or disparage you or your beliefs. I would, however, issue you a challenge to really examine the actions you’ve taken in the name of those beliefs. Please, hear what I have to say. I think it is important you understand what has transpired and only wish to ask some admittedly difficult questions and beseech you to honestly consider them before dismissing me out of hand.

First of all, thank you for the birthday card and gift card; the sentiment was nice. I just wish it felt sincere — if not for me, then for your son, Tim. Oh, I know you love him (indeed both of us) in the best way you know how. Just like I know a lifetime of learning doctrine to mean one thing is not easy to reconcile with conflicting truths or even admit that it may be at least partially flawed. But not to even make an attempt to understand that the love you have for your living flesh-and-blood son should trump millennia-old religious texts written at a time when slavery was status quo, women were property and eating pork or shellfish was punishable by death or banishment is disheartening. No person can take every single Biblical tenet as literal law. You may protest that you do, but you and I both know the reverse is true, even if only to a degree.

Russ, surely you never shunned your wife as unclean during a certain time of the month to the extent you wouldn’t even share furniture with her. Pat, surely you wouldn’t agree to Russ keeping concubines or to you marrying his brother if he should die. And I’m pretty sure Carolyn wasn’t shunned, banished or condemned to death for divorcing one husband and taking another. So why do you take the fleeting six references to gay people in both the Old and New Testaments as nonnegotiable truth and law? Why won’t you at least entertain the possibility that the way in which scripture on this particular topic has been taught, like so many others that came before it regarding anti-miscegenation, race, slavery and women, may be flawed and tainted by archaic bias falsely cloaked under the insidious fallacy of “love the sinner, hate the sin”? Being gay is not a choice. It is not some addiction or disease that can be cured. It is innate and immutable. You can no more successfully hope and pray for a person’s orientation to change than you could hope and pray for a tomato to change into a brick.

Believe me. I wasted years of my youth trying to change because people I loved and respected expected it of me. I didn’t want to face what seemed like at the time would be an eternity of ostracism and hatred and loneliness. I tried and I tried. And I failed. And it took me a long time to realize that being who I am would lead to none of those fates — but hating myself for being who I am would. Finally, I learned that being gay is an inborn trait no different than height and hair color. After all, if it weren’t, don’t you think centuries of fervent efforts to rid humanity of it would have shown at least some modicum of success? Yet here we are.

I, and all gay people like me and your son, could no sooner turn heterosexual than you could will your eyes to change colors. And just like possessing eye colors that not everyone shares, being gay is just one in a pantheon of benignly healthy and natural human traits. We are born gay and someday, far in the future, we will die gay. Just as you are born with the eye color you will die with. It is a neuropsychological and biological fact. So, when you “hate the sin” in this instance, you are indeed hating the “sinner.”

The only choice any of us has in the matter is how we react to what is a perfectly natural form of human life. My mother could not accept it at first. She had been raised to believe as you do that gay people like your son and me are depraved and lascivious monsters. When I was forced out of the closet to her, she faced a choice: Believe what others had told her, or believe her own eyes, heart, mind and soul. Thankfully, after a difficult struggle that took a couple of years of hard honesty and self-examination, she embraced me unconditionally. Which is why I was giving you the benefit of the doubt. Experience taught me when people reject fear and instead open themselves to love, they change for the better.

Your actions and loving attitudes toward us over the past nearly two decades had given me hope that you acknowledged us as a committed couple who commanded at least some of the respect and dignity afforded to married couples like Tim’s brother and his wife. Our lack of marriage wasn’t through any lack of wanting. Had we been able to marry when we wanted, we would be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary, not planning our wedding 17 years after we met and fell in love.

So I must admit, when Tim called you to find out if you would attend our wedding and you told him you would not even consider being there for him because you “just wouldn’t feel comfortable,” I was (and still am) shocked and deeply saddened. Look at your son. I mean honestly look at your son. He is loving, caring, generous of spirit, honest, creative, witty, helpful and talented in so many ways. That you will not allow yourselves to celebrate and love him unconditionally as I do is mindboggling. Instead you focus on one facet of his being that others have told you is flawed and detestable and condemn him for it. He may not show it, but he is devastated that the last 20 years of what he thought was growing acceptance on your part now feels like just so much lying (a sentiment I can’t help but share).

I hope this is not the case. The eternal optimist in me hopes your love for him truly is unconditional and is merely and unfortunately at odds with your faith to such an extent that you are unsure how you should act or how you should feel, but that, regardless, eventually you will land on the side of love rather than fear.

But the realist in me fears that is not the case. Deep down, I’m afraid that you are truly choosing how you’ve been taught to interpret your faith over allowing yourselves to love your son wholly and unconditionally. And to allow such a thing causes an astoundingly profound disservice to everyone involved.

Please prove the realist in me wrong. You are missing out on what should be a truly wonderful relationship with your son that is more than just awkward small talk made to hide your uncomfortable truth in a desperate attempt to keep him in your life. It would be real. It would be honest. It would be unconditionally loving. You would want to celebrate him as much as I do, not hide away who he is like a dirty secret.

As an aside, we don’t want to destroy marriage or “redefine” it. We want to join in its exalted status. To declare to each other and the world vows of love and fidelity to one another and only one another. You may feel uncomfortable with it, you may even loathe the very notion. But it is fact. Now that we legally can, we will be getting married this fall. I just wish you had chosen to be there and celebrate with us and the rest of those whom we hold dearest in our hearts.

But that moment has passed. The damage is done and I fear there is no going back. Regardless of your motives or justifications or future attempts to reconcile, the simple fact is you chose the words of an ancient book and the fire-breathing vitriol of preachers over the love of your own child.

This is why I must regretfully return your card and gift; I just don’t feel comfortable keeping them.

With sincere love and respect,

James

An Open Letter to Gatsby, Daisy, Tom, and Of Course Tobey Maguire.

2015-08-14-1439594973-704477-flapper.png

Hello ladies and gents,

I figured it was about time to address the marital quagmire you find yourselves in. Despite having had the benefit of thousands of literary critics and moviegoers pick apart your lives over the years, none of you, for reasons we can only speculate, has ever sought the practical advice of a divorce lawyer. Enter me.

We all know your story: Daisy and Tom married young; Gatsby was in love with Daisy all along, stalked her for years and moved into the house across the pond so he could stalk her more easily (Gatsby I’ll say it: you creepy); Tom was, shall we say, a bit of a ladies’ man; Gatsby, seeing the marriage wasn’t so good, made a move on Daisy, and then stuff really hit the fan. Since then, your social engagements have been nothing but awkward, and I’m guessing you’d all really prefer to just get on with your lives.

I mean, it’s not like we haven’t seen this chain of events play out before (give or take a few champagne-drenched flapper parties). It’s more or less the oldest story in the book. And I want to make it clear up front, I’m not blaming any of you. Well, except Tom, obviously you’re a swag-bellied canker blossom, but otherwise you’re all fantastic people. The issue here is not to apportion blame, but really to just give you some tips for handling this situation in a way that’s going to allow you all to escape this doomed marriage with the least amount of headache. I’ve outlined a simple plan below.

Daisy, read up on Pope Francis. Being Catholic, I know you have your issues with divorce, which seems to be the reason you’ve stuck it out with Tom for as long as you have. But, in a brilliant plot twist, the Pope has let us know with a slight chuckle that remarrying is actually fine! They were just kidding before.

Daisy and Gatsby, stop sleeping together. Just for a while. Since Tom was having affairs long before you were, Daisy, and you’ve got the utility receipts from his Fornication Condo to prove it, you’ll probably be all right–but just to be extra careful during the divorce, keep it in your pants until the papers are signed.

Daisy, get character witnesses. That is, if you want custody of your daughter, who is fortunately still young enough that she won’t remember any of this if you act now, have a list of people lined up who can vouch for you being the primary caregiver (and for Tom being, well, Tom).

Tom, prepare to pay up. You’re filthy rich and I’m inclined to believe no judge is going to find you a sympathetic character. Behold: your wife is embracing the liberté of the Roaring Twenties! And it’s going to cost you a pretty penny.

Gatsby and Daisy, keep my card. I sense you’ll be needing it in five to seven years. To quote your great wisdom, Mr. Gatsby, “Repeat the past? Why of course you can!”

Tobey Maguire, get the hell out of there. Just go. This is a tangled web (get it?!) and these people are crazy.

Respectfully,
James J. Sexton

An Open Letter To My Ex-Husband

When writer Susan Campos and her husband Bill divorced in 2004 after eight years of marriage, her goal for their parenting relationship was progress, not perfection.

Years later, Susan and Bill have made some incredible progress for the sake of their teenage son: They’re neighbors, connected by their adjoining backyards. Below, the LA-based former TV anchor writes a letter of appreciation to her co-parenting partner in crime. 

Dearest Bill,

When you first suggested moving across the street shortly after our divorce, I’ll admit, I had my reservations. OK, I thought you were nuts. But not only was it the best thing for our now teenage son, it made both our lives so much easier. When you called a few years later to say the house behind me was available — and that our son would now only need to walk some 15 steps between adjoining backyards — I knew it was a brilliant move, even if it took a few days for me to consider.

To be honest, most of that time was spent coming up with quips to use when people raised their eyebrows and asked questions. “Yes, there’s privacy,” I’d tell them. “No, it’s not some Big Love compound with Bill and his new wife.” 

Like any divorced family, issues would arise but maybe our atypical thinking has helped us avoid some of the pitfalls that trip up other divorced parents. Time has taught us that negotiation, compromise and out-of-left-field ideas go a long way in peacefully raising a child after the big D.

So before I live to regret agreeing to sing your praises publicly, allow me to rattle off three of your qualities (you have a dozen for me, right?) that have made you a good match for co-parenting.

1. Your martini-dry sense of humor.

Thankfully you’re funny when hashing out problems that arise and once the issue is settled, we can usually tease one another about it later. But you’re especially skilled at slyly calling out some of my more memorable parenting gaffes. A few years ago, when our son peppered me with questions after a human development class (“How old are people when they start having sex?” “How old were you when you first had sex?”) I remember thinking, “Ugh, I hope he doesn’t go and ask Bill this one, too.” Hours later, you sent a text with the ultimate bust: “28, huh?” That will teach me to try to pass myself off as a prim Victorian when I should have just passed on answering the question.

2. You’re man enough to be a great gal pal when I need it and a ghost when I don’t.

You’re much more sensitive than you let on. Besides having smart discussions with our son, you’re pretty solid with dating advice, and most importantly, you only advise if I ask first. Your quiet approval from a respectful distance of my more serious relationships is much appreciated.

3. Your measured parenting skills are impressive (and well-matched to my occasionally overprotective ones)

OK, I’ll admit it: the freedom you give our son when sometimes I might clip his wings does often end well. Where I’m afraid of him playing football or, frankly, any sport with any contact whatsoever, you encouraged him to try a sport he ended up truly loving. And when I get a little neurotic or infuriated with the classic teenage backtalk, you’re there to provide backup.

So in closing, thank you for stepping up and creating an environment where our son only has to take a few steps when he needs not just one, but both of us.

Your parenting partner,

Susan

You might be surprised that I’m writing you this letter, considering that you are one of the world’s most prominent examples of a happy marriage. But, as a seasoned divorce attorney, I’ve learned to spot the ones whose marriages are on the way out–and frankly, Cinderella, I’ve seen that look in your eye.

You probably don’t want to admit it. You’re probably thinking, If I get a divorce from Prince Charming, will I be letting the world down? Will I be disillusioning thousands, nay millions of little girls whose dreams of finding fairytale romance hinge on my prime example? Cinderella, we can only hope.

With this in mind, I’m going to advise you now as if you had wandered into my office, impractical shoes and all, asking “How do I divorce Prince Charming?”

Lesson One: Get a prenup.

I’m not going to sugar-coat this, Cinderella: You, like most ill-advised Disney princesses, have been operating under the assumption that a Prince will make you happy. I’m guessing based on the fact that you were roughly sixteen when you got married, and that your decision to marry was doubtless driven by a desire to escape a life of indentured servitude, you were probably more focused on the door than you were on arranging a prenup.

I mean, let’s be blunt here: Prince Charming has substantial assets, and this was probably part of the attraction. But, as you’ll find out in the process of divorcing him, the Prince’s assets–his royal inheritance etc.–are what we in the divorce business call “pre-marital assets”–in other words, you can’t touch them. Thus, like so many women before and after you, you were in a financially disadvantaged position at the start of the marriage, you thought it would be rude to ask for a prenup, and now at the end of the marriage here you are in a financially disadvantaged position once again.

I know, it’s unfair. Considering how you’ve spent your life looking after Prince Charming and your royal children, how you’ve smiled and waved when you were supposed to, fulfilled your responsibilities (even indulging his fantasies of having you dress up like a house wench and tickle his feet with your feather-duster)–even with all that, now you’ve been left in a position where you probably can’t touch his royal monies. Such is the law–it’s a prenup or nothing, for you.

Lesson Two: Commingle your assets.

Considering your lack of a prenup, my advice to you now is to secure some assets for yourself by “commingling”. In effect, commingling assets means mixing joint money, or your personal accounts (for example, what you get from renting your father’s house to those wicked stepsisters of yours) with your husband’s inherited money (the palace bank account). The idea is to make it difficult for Prince Charming’s lawyers to show clear separation of accounts in the court, therefore making a case that the money from said accounts should be split down the middle.

In short: open a joint bank account. Make big financial outlays (country house, jewels, angel investment in a Talking Mouse Circus) using mixed moneys. Avoid making big joint purchases from your husband’s inherited funds whenever possible, because you won’t have any claim to those in the divorce. And so on.

Contrary to the widespread belief among legendary damsels in distress, marrying royalty isn’t generally all it’s cracked up to be. Without a prenup, frankly it doesn’t matter that you caught him in three different broom closets with three different scullery maids last year; his pre-marital assets are still likely to stay with him.

Cinderella, you understand the complications of the fairy tale marriage; you, more than anyone, know what it really means to live “happily ever after.” I urge you to take that knowledge, along with your glass slippers and your wits, to the bank.

Respectfully,

James J. Sexton
