The designer has teamed with the show’s creator, HBO, on an exclusive men’s capsule collection that will launch on Thursday. This marks the first time Varvatos has collaborated with a television series and is the only luxury fashion collaboration for the “Game of Thrones” final season.

Prices range from $ 98 for a graphic T-shirt to $ 2,698 for the hand-dyed leather jacket.

A graphic T-shirt from the capsule includes references to the show.

Burberry Teams With U.K. Charity Smart Works to Dress Women in Need

GET SMART: Burberry is marking International Women’s Day by spreading the love, and the checks and the trench coats, to women in need of work wardrobes. Since 2013, the brand has been teaming with the British women’s charity Smart Works, which offers new, donated clothing and styling advice to women in need who are trying to get back into the workforce. Burberry has always donated clothing to Smart Works, but this year for the first time it invited seven women from the program into its London showrooms for a styling session and the opportunity to pick out their capsule work wardrobes.
The clients are at stage two of the Smart Works program, meaning they have secured employment and will need clothing to wear to their new jobs, ahead of their first pay checks. Half of Smart Works’ clients are from an ethnic minority, are long-term unemployed and have been unsuccessful with a large number of job applications. Smart Works said the majority of women it helps eventually secure full employment and that it aims to dress 3,500 women this year in the U.K.

Model Behati Prinsloo Teams With Seven For All Mankind

LUCKY SEVEN: Model Behati Prinsloo won’t have a Super Bowl-sized audience like her husband Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levin did last weekend, but she is front-and-center for Seven For All Mankind.
The model is the focus of the Los Angeles-based denim and lifestyle brand’s spring campaign. Lensman Guy Aroch shot her along the California coast for the third installment of #wearemankind. The model is a familiar face with the fashion crowd, having worked with Victoria’s Secret, Elizabeth Arden and Swarovski, among others.
As a jeans kind of girl, she modeled styles with denim side stripes, fringe accents, unexpected soft fabrics and pops of color. Malcolm Jackson, Ali Tate Cutler, Alicia Herbeth and Josh Upshaw rounded out her supporting cast for the Delta Galil Industries-owned label. This time around, the “We Are Mankind” initiative plays up the layers that make up individuals. The brand will also be adding new denim and ready-to-wear styles for women and men.
Executives at the denim label met the model in October and appreciated “her genuine obsession with denim and admiration for Seven For All Mankin,” a company spokeswoman said. “What we love most about Behati is that she is more than meets the eye, beyond being in this

EXCLUSIVE: Kent & Curwen Teams With ‘Peaky Blinders’ on Capsule

SNEAK PEAKY: Kent & Curwen is hitting the gritty streets of Twenties Birmingham, England, collaborating with the makers of “Peaky Blinders,” the hit BBC TV crime drama, on a capsule collection.
The capsule will make its debut on Sunday during the Kent & Curwen presentation at the grand Two Temple Place, overlooking the Thames, WWD has learned.
David Beckham, an investor in Kent & Curwen and the face of its campaigns, his eldest son Brooklyn and “Peaky Blinders” creator Steven Knight are expected to be at the Kent & Curwen show. The award-wining series, which began airing in 2013, stars Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory and Paul Anderson, and the next season is due to start in September, just as the collection drops in-store.
Kent & Curwen designer Daniel Kearns has created a three-piece tweed suit, lightweight frock coat, collarless shirts inspired by Twenties styles, peg leg trousers and flat caps. Some styles have printed canvas patches featuring the brand’s rose motif done as a Victorian-era photograph with the writing, “Garrison Tailors by Order of the Peaky Blinders.”
Garrison Tailors is a men’s wear clothing company founded by the show’s creator, Knight. The British-made tailored clothing is inspired by the Peaky Blinders-era costumes.

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott Teams Up With Dsquared2 on Capsule

POWER COLLABORATION: Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott are making their debut as fashion designers in collaboration with Dsquared2 founders and creative directors Dean and Dan Caten.
The fashion photographers and the Canadian twin brothers teamed up on a fashion capsule collection, hitting selected stores and the Dsquared2 online shop in February.
As suggested by its name, the Mert and Marcus 1994 x Dsquared2 capsule captures the most iconic spirit of the Nineties, as seen through the filters of the creative crew. Including a range of eye-catching pieces for men and women, the collection is focused on a combination of bold volumes and bright hues and is infused with a hip, underground vibe inspired by the Nineties’ Berlin metropolitan scene where music, art and fashion collided creating a hip, forward-thinking environment.

The Mert and Marcus 1994 x Dsquared2 capsule counts a range of overalls, bombers, tank tops, hoodies, oversize T-shirts, asymmetric sheath dresses and boxy tailoring styles, all crafted from a selection of fabrics that are masterfully manipulated to create laminated, paperlike and rubberized effects.

H&M Teams With Eytys for Gender-Neutral Collection

SWEDE TEAM: Hennes & Mauritz has teamed with Eytys for a gender neutral collection due early next year, targeting younger consumers with a fashion-forward offer.
The fast-fashion retailer will sell the Swedish label’s chunky-soled shoes and clothing for adults as well as items for children, starting Jan. 24 in some stores around the world and online.
The collaboration comes as the Swedish retailer undergoes a vast restructuring in a bid to beef up online services and speed up supply chains to catch up with rivals. The group last month said it would close Cheap Monday, a label geared to younger clients.
“The collection is all about proportions — creating a distinct unisex silhouette by playing around with loose silhouettes and chunky architectural footwear,” said Max Schiller, Eytys creative director.
Colors will include dark green, bright yellow, khaki, dark blue, black and white, while materials will include snakeskin prints, fake patent leather and stiff cotton. Shoes will be offered in boxes decorated with artwork by painter Zoe Barcza.
According to H&M’s statement, the retailer initially approached the label for a shoe collection but then decided on a full range of clothing and accessories, too, in order to show the “whole brand aesthetic and ethos,” according to Ross Lydon,

Shaniqwa Jarvis Teams With X-Girl to Drop Capsule Collection at Social Studies NY

STREET-SMART FASHION: The streetwear brand X-Girl has lined up portrait photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis for its latest collaboration.
Compact to the degree that only three items are offered, the styles are available through Sunday at Social Studies NY, a multipurpose space and pop-up. To help spread the word about the collaboration, photographer Chandler Kennedy shot the painter and model Monica Hernandez wearing the assortment. A “Mini Me” crewneck sweatshirt retails for $ 95, the $ 50 “Too Many Rich People in NY” T-shirt and the $ 50 “Less, Less, Less” tote bag, which was hand-dyed by Jarvis, are up-for-grabs.
Jarvis, who has shot for Gap, Supreme, Riposte and others, dove into the capsule collection sector last year for the launch of her Baque Creative Press-published book. Started by musician Kim Gordon and stylist Daisy von Furth in 1994, the X-Girl brand has renewed its focus on New York, and is on the lookout for new talent and creatives that align with the brand. The company has more than 100 stores in Japan and has loyalists like Chloë Sevigny and Sofia Coppola. Early on, the Lafayette Street-rooted label rallied young feminists and that ethos remains.

Avon Teams With Rankin for New, Edgier Winter Campaign

ALL MADE UP: Avon is trying to shake up its image by tapping British photographer Rankin to create its latest campaign The Winter Edit, which launches on Friday online and via Avon representatives.
The campaign centers around four key looks: Go Galactic, Divine Dream, Fired Up and Molten Metals, inspired by key makeup trends seen on the autumn 2018 catwalks. From metallic sheens to fiery orange shades and cotton candy tones, these edits are meant to “enable self-expression, inspire confidence and be fun,” said Stephen Rendu, Avon U.K.’s director of beauty.
“I love that Avon has such a massive reach and they’ve been empowering women as ambassadors from the start and making people feel confident, so this just feels like a really great extension of what I do normally,” said Rankin, who has shot a number of beauty campaigns promoting inclusivity and diversity.
The photographer said he brought his “edginess to their aesthetic,” and tried to reinforce the connection the social-selling brand has with its audience. “Even before social media came along, Avon had their women talking to their friends. I was really inspired by Avon’s mission to democratize beauty, because I really believe in beauty and fashion for all.”

Hugo Boss Teams With Jeremyville on Holiday Capsule

Every year, Hugo Boss commissions an artist to create a special collection to commemorate the Chinese New Year and the holiday season. Some years it’s easier, like 2018, the Year of the Dog, when the German brand worked with artist Julian Meagher to create Playforever, a collection centered around race cars where a dog is featured in the driver’s seat.
But 2019 will be the Year of the Pig, which creative director Ingo Wilts admitted “was a little bit challenging. How can we do Hugo Boss and a pig in a fun way?”

The sneakers are printed with pigs and other characters. 

But when the brand found New York City-based artist Jeremyville, he soon put its fears to rest. The artist offered up a colorful cityscape featuring an array of characters, including pigs, that the brand put on accessories such as bags and shoes as well as apparel. The characters were printed onto leather accessories in a relief design, a leather backpack features a Jeremyville rabbit, and a sneaker has a raised pig motif. There are also dress shirts, sweatshirts, tees and bombers as well as figurines, charms and iPhone cases.

Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA Teams Up With White Castle For Its Vegan Slider

RZA: Live From The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin

Source: Steven Ferdman / Getty

For nearly 100 years, White Castle has been one of those fast food chains that people either love, hate, or tolerate when it’s time to feed the munchies. Wu-Tang Clan’s The RZA has teamed up with White Castle to promote its veggie burger slider in a most unique way, continuing a long-running partnership of sorts between the brands.

Veg News reports:

White Castle shared a promotional video on Instagram, wherein Wu-Tang member and longtime vegan RZA directed followers to a hotline set up to promote the Impossible Slider. “Peace. My name is RZA9000, formerly known as the RZA. I have uploaded my consciousness into a supreme data system and now I possess the knowledge infinite,” the disembodied voice of RZA says in the video.

“Together with the Wu-Tang Clan, we will slide through space, seek wisdom, and expand the parameters of the mind. If you are an Earthling and you need answers, call 1-833-4-SLIDER.” The phone number connects to a recorded message, wherein RZA urges callers to leave a “question about existence” that may be used as part of the campaign, ending the recording with a cryptic statement. “All will be revealed. Wu-Tang in space, eating vegan Impossible Sliders—October 1.”

Back in April, Ghostface Killa and Cappadonna rocked a set at a Brooklyn White Castle to promote the launch of the Impossible Slider, and a look on some Wu-Tang members’ social media pages show and prove that the might WTC is down with the mighty WC.

According to most accounts, the Impossible Slider is selling well and will eventually be made available via all its chains nationwide.

Danielle Guizio Teams With FDNY to Create Limited-Edition Capsule Collection

FOUR-ALARM FASHION: With a few relatives who are firefighters, Danielle Guizio understands the round-the-clock dedication that goes with the job. Now the New York-based contemporary designer has created a capsule collection with the New York City Fire Department. Developed to honor the work of New York’s bravest, the nine-piece collection of genderless streetwear features FDNY logos and incorporates uniform accents and fire truck insignia.
Four years into her own company, Guizio started her career as a stylist, working with Lady Gaga’s stylist among others. More recently, she started doing a little personal shopping on the side at the request of her friends including Halsey, whom she first met six years ago. One of Giuzio’s childhood friends is now the musician’s manager. The designer said she first got to know of Halsey via the Internet. “It might have even been before Instagram,” she said.
The pair became friends during their leaner days, when each was trying to make their way. At that time, Halsey was sleeping on the floor with two of Giuzio’s other friends in a New York apartment. As for lending a hand to Gaga’s wardrobe, Guizio said she grew up singing and dancing to the six-time Grammy winner’s music in

Hearts on Fire Teams With Wedding Dress Influencer Hayley Paige

PUT A RING ON IT: Jewelry brand Hearts on Fire is getting into the influencer game.
The Boston-based jeweler has teamed with wedding dress influencer and designer Hayley Paige, entering a licensing agreement to produce a range of bridal jewelry under her name. The collection will become available for purchase in spring 2019 through Hearts on Fire retailers, as well as the brand’s own e-commerce channels.
The agreement is a move by Hearts on Fire to appeal to the mass-market Millennial consumer.

EXCLUSIVE: Karl Lagerfeld Teams With Puma for Capsule Range

IT TAKES TWO: It’s a busy season for the Karl Lagerfeld brand, which is gearing up for the worldwide launch on Oct. 19 of a men’s and women’s capsule with Puma. It caps the sports brand’s Suede 50 program of collaborations marking the 50th anniversary of its original Suede sneaker. While originally focused on the shoe, the project grew into a 13-piece capsule fusing the brands’ respective codes.
Items include a women’s cropped T-shirt and jumpsuit based on Puma’s archive T7 tracksuit with 7-mm. stripes. Men’s pieces include a slim-fit hoodie with matching sweatpants and logo T-shirts. A backpack, shoulder bag and baseball cap sport custom Karl Lagerfeld x Puma branding, with prices for the capsule ranging from 40 euros to 175 euros.
The line includes two unisex Suede sneakers inspired by Lagerfeld’s personal style: a tuxedo jacket, high white collar, tie and sunglasses — reinterpreted through graphics, say, or in playful details like removable sunglasses.
The collection will be available for pre-sale at karl.com and puma.com from Oct. 18, rolling out to Karl Lagerfeld and Puma stores as well as selected retailers worldwide the next day.
Other brands and personalities to have collaborated on Puma’s Suede 50 program across 2017 and 2018 include Ferrari, Michael

After teaming with Céline on an exclusive range, the retailer’s next project includes the release of an exclusive capsule with Louis Vuitton.

MONKEY BUSINESS: Plans by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett to have virtual members take over their group Gorillaz — including a possible future for the band led by artificial intelligence — continue to take shape.
But the virtual band members, including characters 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Russel Hobbs and Noodle, will continue to have a real-life physical extension through the merch, with a capsule for the British band’s clothing line G Foot in the works with Paris-based streetwear label GEYM.

Trina Turk Teams Up With ‘Incredibles 2’ for Active Swimwear

Trina Turk has partnered with Disney Pixar to create a capsule collection of active swimwear inspired by “Incredibles 2,” which opens June 15.
Launching Wednesday, the capsule encourages an adventurous lifestyle and inspires consumers to embrace their inner superhero. The 12-piece capsule consists of black activewear pieces with graphic red and white stripes and the “Incredibles” logo, two black and ivory geometric print jersey dresses, one pair of Edna Mode-type women’s sunglasses and two men’s swim and active pieces.
“It’s very clean and simple. It’s kind of swimwear and it’s kind of activewear. It can go either way,” said Turk, describing the rash guard, leggings and women’s swimsuits (a bikini with two top options, a one-piece tank and a long-sleeve swimsuit). The “Incredibles” logo is a lower case “i” with a swirl around it.
The collection will be sold at Trina Turk’s 12 freestanding boutiques, trinaturk.com, mrturk.com and shopdisney.com. The women’s and men’s line retails from $ 56 to $ 288.
“I’m a big fan of ‘The Incredibles,’” said the L.A. designer.  “I love the references in the production design to iconic midcentury modern architecture in Palm Springs, as well as the dynamic characters, especially Edna Mode. We created an active swimwear capsule collection to wear

Thorsun Teams With Surf Lodge

George Sotelo has snagged a great summer job.
The founder and designer of Thorsun, a luxury men’s and women’s swimwear brand, has been named the Designer in Residence for the trendy Surf Lodge in Montauk, N.Y.
No, the gig doesn’t mean he’s spending the summer there hanging by the pool, but it does mean he’s designed the uniforms for the staff as well as the upholstery for the outdoor furniture.
Sotelo said he got to know the Surf Lodge team last summer when he did a charity pop-up there for Project Paz, which allowed him to actually sell to customers in person for the first time. “It was successful and super fun,” he said, “and I met a whole new demographic who had never heard of the brand.”
So when Surf Lodge founder Jayma Cardoso reached out to see if he’d follow Rachel Comey and Zimmerman as this year’s designer, he immediately agreed. The gig also allowed him to do women’s ready-to-wear for the first time — he designed three different patterned dresses for the staff. The men are being outfitted in surf shorts and sport shirts in one of his custom prints that he based on the color palette of the resort.

Huntsman Teams With Sotheby’s for First Online-Only Auction

TAILOR MADE: In partnership with Sotheby’s auction house, the Savile Row tailor Huntsman & Sons is staging its first online-only luxury lifestyle sale. Bidding starts May 22 and will run until June 1.
“At first I wasn’t interested in doing this collaboration, but then I started thinking of all the interesting things I wanted to produce, and before you know it, we had a lot of possibilities,” said Pierre Lagrange, Huntsman’s owner.
Lots range from bespoke jackets and sportswear to sporting goods and objects for the home.
Some of the pieces serve more than one purpose, such as a safari jacket with a backgammon print (for impromptu games in the Serengeti) and a walking stick that doubles as a cigarette holder, in the vein of James Bond. Other noteworthy pieces include those created in collaboration with Harley Davidson, Adidas and Reebok. There is also an orange suit jacket worn by Taron Egerton in the movie “Kingsman: The Golden Circle.”

EXCLUSIVE: Proenza Schouler Teams With Lancôme on Makeup Range

COLOR COLLABORATION: Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are teaming with Lancôme on a limited-edition makeup collection for fall, due out in July, WWD has learned.
The duo, whose fashion has been inspired by painters such as Carmen Herrera and Ellsworth Kelly, with distinctive approaches to color, was given carte blanche for their makeup creations.
“Lancôme has always represented the epitome of luxury beauty products, so it is like a dream come true to be able to collaborate with such an iconic and historic brand,” the duo said jointly in a statement.
Françoise Lehmann, general manager of Lancôme international, called Proenza Schouler fashion “the manifesto of a strong, free femininity. The idea of ‘empowerment’ is at the heart of their values, just as it has always been at the heart of the Lancôme philosophy.”
Proenza Schouler is the latest in a number of designer collaborations for Lancôme, which has worked on capsule color cosmetics lines with Olympia Le-Tan, Sonia Rykiel, Anthony Vaccarello, Jacquemus and Alber Elbaz — among others — in the past.
Proenza Schouler’s fragrance business is licensed to L’Oréal, also the owner of Lancôme.

The Kooples Teams With PETA

French brand The Kooples, which pledged to transition to a fur-free brand in 2016, has teamed with PETA on a collaborative clutch bag.
The vegan leather style retails for $ 65, with all proceeds benefiting PETA.
Kooples global chief executive officer Nicolas Dreyfus said: “One day I received a call from PETA asking to sit down. They came to my office and showed me a video and said, ‘You have to stop using fur. You have a powerful name and a huge network, I’m sure you can help make it stop.’ I didn’t see that there was another option.”
In September 2016, the brand vowed to go fur-free and marked its first fur-free fall collection in 2017. “Our bestseller this season is a faux fur coat for women. It shows that people are ready to buy faux fur if the product is good and is of good quality,” he said.
“I don’t want to be proud of stopping to use fur, we are not the first one to do this and I hope we are not the last. I want the whole industry to follow the decision,” Dreyfus said. The trend toward going fur-free has been strengthening. In October 2018, Gucci pledged to go fur-free,
