LONDON — Labelhood, a Shanghai-based emerging designer support platform, community and fashion retailer, has entered into a strategic partnership deal with Lane Crawford for the Greater China region.
Labelhood will open pop-up corners in Lane Crawford’s stores in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai and Chengdu, with the focus on Chinese emerging talents from the fall 2019 season.

AllSaints Unveils Fragrance Line in Partnership With Revlon

LONDON — You can buy a leather jacket, and now you can smell like one, too.
British retail brand AllSaints is diving nose first into perfumery. The contemporary label, known for its leather biker jackets, is padding its portfolio with three debut fragrances, in partnership with Revlon.
Sunset Riot, Metal Wave and Incense City are unisex scents, and according to the brand, pay tribute to the “diversity of AllSaints.” Creative director of AllSaints Wil Beedle said the fragrances have been created with unexpected combinations, such as floral notes mixed with leather and metal ones.
“We are extending our activity beyond ready-to-wear and it made sense for us to explore the fragrance world,” Beedle said. Earlier this year, AllSaints inked a licensing agreement with Global Brands Group to expand its accessories range to include footwear, socks, costume jewelry and cold weather accessories.
By partnering with Revlon, AllSaints is hoping to strengthen its position as a global retailer. “It was immediately clear that not only does Revlon have an impeccable expertise, it also has an intuitive understanding of our brand. The Revlon team were hugely supportive and allowed us to achieve what we wanted without compromising our vision,” said Beedle.
Both companies view the partnership as a way to reach

Net-a-porter, Mr Porter Extend Cartier Partnership

LONDON — Yoox Net-a-porter is continuing to invest in the growth of its fine jewelry and watch business.
The latest move is the launch of a permanent offering of Cartier watches on both Net-a-porter and Mr Porter, building on the success of the jeweler’s pop-ups on both sites.
Cartier made its online debut in May last year, with an exclusive pop-up on Net, to launch the latest iteration of its famous Panthère watch. The brand quickly resonated with the retailer’s audience: The first watch was said to have been sold out within two minutes of the launch via WhatsApp.
The Panthère will now return for the launch of the permanent collection on Wednesday, alongside other signature styles by the jeweler including Tank, Ballon Bleu and Baignoire.

The new Cartier Panthère watch. 

Prices will range from 4,000 pounds to 85,000 pounds.

She added that while the majority of the sales are generated by the site’s high-spending roster of clients, dubbed EIPs or extremely important

GAME OVER: All good things come to an end.
After 20 years of partnership, Adidas and the AC Milan soccer club are parting ways, mutually agreeing to prematurely terminate the sponsorship deal at the end of the current season.
The agreement between the two parties began on July 1998 after previous partnerships, and was scheduled to run until 2023.
AC Milan released a statement on Tuesday thanking the German company for “the consolidated relationship,” which saw Adidas’ trademark three stripes shine on the club’s signature red-and-black jerseys during 12 trophy ceremonies, including two UEFA Champions League titles; one FIFA World Club Cup; two European Super Cups; three Italian League titles; three Italian League Super Cups, and an Italian Cup.
AC Milan also said a new sponsor will be named, starting from July 2018. The club confirmed it has already signed a new deal “with a sports manufacturer for a global technical sponsorship and dual branded licensing partnership” but will disclose details only “in the coming months.”
According to the Italian press, Puma will succeed Adidas in the role. In the last couple of weeks, Under Armour was also rumored to be on the shortlist of the possible candidates to the sponsorship.
