Inside Sporting Kansas City and Bldwn’s Capsule Collection

Bldwn, an American fashion brand, is collaborating with Kansas City’s Major League Soccer team, Sporting Kansas City, on a limited-edition collection that takes you right to left field.
“We want to tell our local story on a global stage. We have a passion for fashion and sports, so we want to push the boundaries of what this type of collaboration can do to bring people together,” said John Moncke, vice president of brand revenue and stadium at Sporting Kansas City. “Sporting and Bldwn began in KC, and we’re both representing the local area far beyond.”
The partnership was a special connection from the beginning, with Bldwn and Sporting Kansas City desiring to place the fan, who may also be a customer, at the heart of local sports culture.
“I’ve known Matt Baldwin [founder of Bldwn], and the collaboration has happened behind the scenes for a long time. I’ve picked his brain about things like our uniform design to branded events that we have hosted for fans,” Moncke added. “One of our conversations even led to building a soccer field on the roof of a building for an event a few years ago.”
SKC x Bldwn emphasizes comfort and community, with each piece celebrating Sporting

First Look: Hugo Boss Capsule Collection by Leading Industrial Designer Konstantin Grcic

Hugo Boss has collaborated with Konstantin Grcic, one of Germany’s most influential industrial designers, on a limited capsule collection for fall 2019.
Grcic’s award-winning work in seating and lighting is featured in the permanent collections of the world’s leading museums, including MoMA in New York and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris; in 2010, he was named designer of the year at Design Miami. Over his almost three-decades-long career, Grcic is perhaps best known for his focus on utility and simplicity — high fashion seems rather a long way from his usual remit.
But not at all, Grcic told WWD as he showed off his Boss capsule collection in his airy Berlin studio, a converted factory floor with large windows and long white desks. “Beauty has a function, too,” he explained. “And if things are only practical, and not appealing, then you have a very different relationship to those objects.
“I don’t want to stretch the metaphor too far but chairs come close to something that we almost wear,” he added. Grcic’s chairs have won design prizes and several feature in museum collections. “So it’s not a completely strange world to me.”
This isn’t his first tie-up with a fashion brand either: In the

Marianna Hewitt Collaborates With DL1961 on Capsule

DL1961, the 10-year-old sustainable denim brand, is collaborating with lifestyle blogger and influencer Marianna Hewitt on a capsule collection, that will be introduced at retail next month.
Hewitt, who also has a skin-care line called Summer Fridays, has 917,000 followers on Instagram. Last week, WWD reported that Summer Fridays raised its first outside capital from Prelude Growth Partners.
Zahra Ahmed, chief executive officer of DL1961, said the impetus for the collection  was that Hewitt told her that she always has trouble finding jeans. The capsule, which consists of 24 styles, uses fibers and technology that reduces the usage of water, energy and chemicals during the manufacturing, with the goal of a more gentle environmental impact. The collection is designed with body inclusivity in mind, and offers denim, skirts, jumpsuits, tops and bodysuits, Ahmed said.
Hewitt’s collection will launch exclusively at Nordstrom on Sept. 12. The line retails from $ 149 to $ 229 and will also be available at DL1961.com, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Shopbop and selected specialty stores at the end of September. Inclusive sizing will be available at Anthropologie and DL1961.com.
The line was designed to be very feminine using rose gold hardware. It is produced in the company’s factories in Pakistan, with certain pieces

Rodarte Presents Eighties-Themed Capsule Collection at L.A. Roller Disco Party

It was an Eighties-themed night seemingly off the set of “Stranger Things” inside Milk Studios on Thursday in Los Angeles, where Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy showcased a limited-edition capsule collection.
“We wanted something that spoke to nostalgia a little bit, but also felt of-the-moment,” shared Laura of the event, a collaboration with IMG’s Made and Mastercard.
Neon lights filled the room, which featured a see-now-buy-now Fred Segal Sunset pop-up in the style of a romanticized teenage bedroom. The line of T-shirts, selling for $ 150 each, and sweatshirts for $ 280 — with “Radarte” written across the front — is a collaboration with artist Mari Eastman and sold exclusively at the retail store starting today until Aug. 14.
“Made approached us and said that they were going to do a series of projects where they want you to unite with an artist,” said Laura prior to the presentation, which had models strutting around a makeshift roller-skating rink. “We immediately thought, ‘Oh, this is an amazing opportunity to work with an artist that we admire,’ and we’ve known Mari for years. She’s an amazing painter and professor. Everything was very organic, and it was just a step-by-step process of doing something that was heartfelt

Markarian’s Alexandra O’Neill, Interior Designer CeCe Barfield Thompson Create Capsule Collection Inspired by Upcoming Sales at Christie’s

Markarian designer Alexandra O’Neill and interior designer CeCe Barfield Thompson have created a capsule collection of dresses and homeware that was inspired by Christie’s upcoming Interiors auction.
The two creatives, who became friends as New York University art history students, have drawn inspiration from the furniture, decorative and fine art that will go under the gavel Aug. 21 and Aug. 22 at Christie’s in New York. Their capsule collection will be sold exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman. O’Neill and Thompson also created vignettes that were photographed for Christie’s auction catalogue and will be featured in the auction preview, Aug. 16 to Aug. 20.
Bliss Summers, co-head of the Interiors Sale, said, “It was so kismet because they are so close and we were looking at both of them as potentials. They said, ‘Oh, we will do it together.’ We can’t really force somebody to create a product but they just individually and collectively fell in love with the property. They have this really modern spin on property, that we obviously enjoy and appreciate. They also said, ‘We want to do something new and different with these things.’”
Executives at Christie’s believe that this venture will lead to other opportunities, as has been the case

YG Celebrates Release of Summer Capsule

LOS ANGELES — “Rats Die Slow” reads the back of one 4Hunnid T-shirt.
The message needs no explanation rapper YG (né Keenon Daequan RayJackson) said about one of the pieces from his brand 4Hunnid’s summer capsule. The recently released collection of mostly T-shirts and a pair of basketball shorts is a nod to summer and beautiful women, he went on to say as he described the items.
“It’s really just representing our lifestyle during the summer,” he said. “When summer hits, a lot of people do a lot of things and they plan a lot of trips. I wanted to make a capsule based around pretty females.”
Most of the pieces bear phrases the music artist said represent the lifestyle of “having a good time, being real, being authentic, enjoying yourself, chasing your dream and getting your money.” The capsule debuted at an event Thursday evening that included a gallery-like installation of photos from the capsule’s look book imagery.
4Hunnid, also the name of YG’s record label under Interscope, started in early 2016. It largely won a following as artist merchandise but that changed last year with the introduction of a cut-and-sew collection that made its debut at a star-studded fashion show that drew
