Calvin Klein, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of PVH Corp., andCalvin Klein Fragrances, a division of Coty Inc., today revealed the new CK ONE underwear and jeans collection and CK EVERYONE, a clean fragrance, both inspired by the raw and rebel spirit of the original CK ONE. The collection and fragrance are unveiled in a global advertising campaign, proclaiming, “I am one, I am many. I love everyone of me.”
A tribute to individuality and the freedom of self-expression, the campaign shot by Glen Luchford stars a group of modern multi-hyphenates including musician and actor Eliot Sumner, skater and photographer Evan Mock, musician and makeup artist MLMA, rapper and dancer Priddy the Opp, and models Cara Taylor and Parker Van Noord. The energic, enigmatic visuals explore the many aspects of self, boldly embracing and proudly showcasing to the world a collective individuality and shattering of the status quo. It is a powerful celebration for those unconstrained by boundaries, gender norms and definitions. The advertising campaign will be featured globally and supported by digital, social, high impact outdoor locations, print and TV.
The new fashion collection and fragrance mark the next chapter of the iconic CK ONE story. Jeans and underwear include staple wardrobe pieces with genderless appeal. CK ONE underwear features graphic prints with bold all-over monogram logos, repeating roses and new colorwaves in key cotton and micro fiber styles. Camo prints, color-blocked styles with a ribbed, sock-inspired waistband and a Recycle capsule featuring underwear and t-shirts made from recycled plastic water bottles will also drop later this season. The CK ONE jeans collection includes logo tees, graphic hoodies and timeless denim silhouettes such as oversized trucker jackets, denim vests, and mom and dad jeans, as well as skirts and shorts with raw hem cuts.
Calvin Klein introduces its first clean, gender-free and environmentally conscious fragrance, CK EVERYONE. CK EVERYONE is formulated with naturally derived ingredients, naturally derived alcohol, is vegan, recyclable, and comes in a folding carton that contains 30% post-consumer recycled materials. CK EVERYONE is a bold new fragrance for every generation, inspired by the authentic and youthful-minded. Master perfumer and creator of the original CK ONE fragrance, Alberto Morillas crafted a clean and genderless fragrance exuding freshness using 79% of naturally derived ingredients and ignoring the traditional signifiers of gender, as reflected in the non-conformity of both the scent and campaign. A citrus fragrance that uplifts with zesty organic orange oil is paired with a blue tea accord and a vibrant cedarwood base creating the perfect combination of clean freshness, sweet sensuality and provocative edge. Combining two icons, CK EVERYONE pays homage to the iconic CALVIN KLEIN UNDERWEAR waistband with a reusable signature elastic band on the bottle.
Coinciding with the launch in North America is the I LOVE EVERYONE OF ME POP-UP in New York City. Open to the public from Thursday, February 13 – Saturday, February 15, visitors will be able to explore and shop the new CK EVERYONE fragrance and CK ONE underwear and jeans. A dedicated fragrance room will allow visitors to discover the different fragrance notes while immersive photo moments play with the concept of individuality referenced in the ad campaign. At the experience, visitors will also have the opportunity to have their image projected on the brand’s famed Houston Street billboard during the duration of the activation.

Spring 2020 Global Advertising Campaign Starring New Face of Coach Jennifer Lopez and Global Face of Coach Mens Michael B. Jordan
Coach launches “Originals Go Their Own Way,” its campaign for Spring 2020. Starring award-winning actor, singer, producer and new face of Coach Jennifer Lopez in her first campaign for the house and global face of Coach menswear, actor and producer Michael B. Jordan, the campaign tells the story of authentic self-expression through the lens of its powerful cast.
“I have a unique history with Coach that dates back to ‘All I Have,'” said Lopez. “It is a brand that embodies the essence of being born and bred in New York and I, of course, deeply relate to that. In all it creates, Coach promotes individuality and optimism in its style as well as a sense of authenticity and inclusion. Like me, we’re both New York originals, who create a unique mix of high-fashion with street edge. With Stuart’s designs and Juergen’s photography, we captured special and unique visual moments for this campaign with the iconic New York City skyline as the perfectly tailored backdrop.”
Set in New York City, Coach’s home since 1941, “Originals Go Their Own Way” communicates Creative Director Stuart Vevers‘ evolved vision for the house. Spontaneous, real and playful to reflect the inclusive and optimistic spirit of the house and New York City, it celebrates authenticity, individuality and those who forge their own unique way in life. Emphasized by the inspiring stories of Lopez and Jordan, both known as courageously independent individuals who have paved new paths while staying true to themselves, the campaign advocates for doing things your own way and expressing yourself through purpose and style.
“I’m proud to be part of the new spring campaign,” said Jordan. “The story of what makes an original is very meaningful to me for many reasons, and it was a great experience working with Stuart and Juergen to tell that story in a way that feels fresh and powerful.”
To bring the campaign to life, Vevers worked with photographer Juergen Teller, whose partnership with Coach began in the fall of 2019 and has continued through its holiday and spring campaigns. Shot in iconic locations around the city, including the Edge at Hudson Yards and the High Line, where Coach held its show for the Spring collection, the images also feature the sculpture “Brick House” by the artist Simone Leigh. The public artwork, a 16-foot tall bronze bust of a Black woman which references numerous architectural styles, is a symbol of inclusion, optimism and strength that sits beneath the house’s headquarters, and was featured in its recent show.
“At the start of a new decade, I felt instinctively that it was right to celebrate the color, energy and optimism of New York, our hometown and inspiration as a house,” said Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers. “I loved working with Juergen to bring my vision for Spring to life, and to tell the stories of Jennifer and Michael in a unique and authentic way.”
“Originals Go Their Own Way” spotlights the house’s new Spring bags, including the Hutton, the Rambler, and the men’s Pacer Backpack and Belt Bag—and a ready-to-wear collection featuring a bold new statement in leather, a reference to the house’s roots.
Coach is a Tapestry, Inc. brand. Tapestry is publicly listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker TPR.

J.Jill, Inc. announced the brand’s first ever design collaboration with CFDA designer Christian Siriano on a series of capsule collections, the first launched on September 12 in stores and on JJill.com. A vocal advocate for body and age inclusivity in fashion, Siriano’s first capsule collection includes an array of elevated style essentials and extra-special pieces that are perfect for fall. Sharing J.Jill’s philosophy that style is for every size and shape, each piece in the collection is available in a wide range of sizing, including XS–4XL or 0–28 as well as Petite and Tall categories.
“Christian Siriano is one of today’s most influential fashion designers and a celebrity red-carpet favorite,” said Linda Heasley, President and CEO of J.Jill. “Christian is known for his design inclusivity and, like J.Jill, believes that style is for everyone. He’s a natural collaborator for us.”
The September capsule drop includes a white shirt collection featuring the classic staple in various iterations available in-store and on JJill.com. Launching exclusively on JJill.com, the rest of the September collection includes dresses with elevated design elements such as flared sleeves, waist-conscious silhouettes, draping detail, as well as a chic, nature-inspired print. Other key pieces in the collection include a teal tie-waist puffer jacket, a faux-suede skirt and a shawl lapelled blazer with zipper detailing that can be taken from day to night.
“J.Jill is a brand that designs for all women, and that’s been a part of my ethos as a designer since the very beginning,” said Siriano. “I think fashion is something we all should have a piece of. It’s celebrating people and this idea of beauty. And what’s beautiful? For me, it’s all different types of women—shapes, sizes and ages.”
A key element of the brand’s values and a focus of Christian Siriano’s first collection is the J.Jill Compassion Fund Tee. Designed with a simple, yet powerful message: Kindness is strength, 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of the tee shirt will benefit the J.Jill Compassion Fund. Since its inception, the J.Jill Compassion Fund has given more than $17 million in grants and in-kind donations to community-based organizations across the country that support and empower women to move forward faster and establish a better life for themselves, their children and their families.
Available November 6, the Christian Siriano for J.Jill Holiday Collection features model ambassadors Candice Huffine, Maye Musk and Marquita Pring, who were selected for their commitment to women’s empowerment as well as body and age positivity, which is core to the mission of the J.Jill brand.

autumn, shoppers can seek out remarkable style and engage with key
trends in a personal way. For women, greenery is the central hue for
fall. Deep shades of kelly and olive reference the natural world and
tones can be mixed and matched effortlessly. Varied textures add
interest and dimension, like a snake and crocodile I.N.C.
International Concepts pump. For a little more boldness, walk on the
wild side with animal prints of every variety. From natural leopard
on faux fur coats to neon hues of snake on Bar III dresses, pattern
is king of the jungle this season. Try a new twist on plaid with bold
color mixes and prints of all sizes, like a tweed Julia Jordan dress
or a Vince Camuto plaid top and skirt with just the right hint of
lengths are key in skirts and dresses, like those from Tommy
Hilfiger, especially when paired with oversized sweaters. Add some
drama to a casual look with a voluminous sleeve or make the ultimate
style statement with a Lauren Ralph Lauren head-to-toe plaid suit.
Animal prints make marks on everything from handbags to Calvin Klein
intimates, while statement earrings approach the trend with
tortoiseshell prints. Western accents adorn shoes, hats and saddle
bags with buckles, fringe and whipstitch details. Chunky sole
sneakers, like those from DKNY, keep any look feeling fresh and new
arrivals shoes from Sam Edelman offer something for every style.
menswear, gray matters this fall. From sleek tailored suiting in
windowpane patterns by Tommy Hilfiger to streetwear sets by Ellesse,
the head-to-toe monochromatic look is sure to turn heads. For a
standout moment, try a silver metallic moto trucker jacket from
Michael Kors or an abstract printed trench from Alfani. The modern
utility trend also offers new twists on menswear favorites. A
military jacket from Levi’s is an effortlessly cool take on the
trend, while a head-to-toe wine-colored camo suit from I.N.C.
International Concepts is the ultimate statement.

Wrangler Pop-Up Experience At Fred Segal La Will Explore Archival
Pieces From 1919, The 60s, 70s And 80s.
Wrangler®, a global icon in jeanswear and casual apparel, took over the pop up at Fred Segal Sunset (California) to present a modern day, immersive interpretation of four of the brand’s pivotal points in history. The six-week long Wrangler Pop Up Experience at iconic, experiential retailer Fred Segal’s flagship location, located at 8500 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, opened to the public on Sept. 7.
limited-edition Wrangler collection for men and women celebrates the
legacy that defines the brand today, pulling straight from the
brand’s archives and taking cue from distinctive eras that testify
to its cultural influence as a whole. Further tapping into the
brand’s heritage, many of the products were handmade at the
Wrangler Service Supply Center incorporating denim from Cone Mills,
which is headquartered in its hometown of Greensboro, N.C.
and Fred Segal have both held significant roles in the history of
fashion for decades,” said Tom Waldron, global brand president
at Wrangler. “As Wrangler evolves in front of a global audience,
we embrace the opportunity to bring new experiences to consumers that
allow us to stay true to our heritage, but show an unexpected and
featured era will rotate every few weeks, highlighting one-of-a-kind
pieces inspired by each decade’s attitude. The three additional
eras, along with foundational product in vintage-inspired denim
washes and T-shirts, will also be featured in the space throughout
the duration of the pop-up.
Wrangler can trace its roots back to the emerging textile mills of
Greensboro, where the Blue Bell Overall Company was born. This
archive-inspired capsule, “Bluebell 1919,” celebrates the
foundation of the Wrangler brand – from the laborers who wore its
first coveralls to the talented tradespeople who made them.
Authentic Blue Bell patches can be seen on workwear-inspired jackets
and coveralls that have been updated as stylish wardrobe essentials.
As one of the most culturally complex periods in recent past, the
Sixties were simultaneously unpredictable and pervaded by infectious
optimism. It was during this decade that Wrangler became the
definitive brand of youth culture, with garments worn by
revolutionaries, riders, and rock stars alike. Every design in this
collection, “War & Peace,” captures a monumental moment in
time – one longing for change. Bold, rebellious pieces are
complemented by fun and carefree tiedye for a juxtaposition of two
Empowered by the appeal of protest and the promise of progress, the
Seventies was a decade defined by bold experimentation. This
psychedelic age introduced a new cultural landscape, which
frequently blurred the lines between art, fashion, and music. Flirty
flares, hypnotic patterns, and colorful prints from this capsule,
“Psychedelic,” highlight the exhilarating sound and style of the
extraordinary disco era.
With an attitude impacted by the pulse of pop culture, the Eighties
ushered in an era where style reigned supreme. Wrangler answered the
call of this legendary decade in denim with front-row seats at top
racetracks, leading the racing craze with booty shorts, graphic
tees, and the Wrangler Jeans Machine. The “Racing” collection
pays tribute to Wrangler’s ties to racing and the fashions of this
time in history.
Segal opened its doors in 1961, debuting fashion denim as a
lifestyle concept that instantly secured the brand as an integral
part of the Los Angeles scene and celebrity culture. A unique
retailer that offers an effortless, lifestyle experience inspired by
the free-spirited style of Los Angeles, Fred Segal has discovered and
launched some of the most beloved fashion and lifestyle brands
throughout the decades.
Segal is a place of invention and reinvention, for the best brands in
the world,” said John Frierson, president of Fred Segal. “We
love the references to Wrangler’s incredible heritage story in this
experiential pop up, but we’re also excited to launch these
exclusive new products that are highly relevant right now.”
Fred Segal, which is owned by
Global Icons, offers a curated and refreshing selection of new brands
together with food and pop culture experiences. In addition to its
flagship location on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood, CA, the brand
has expanded to Los Angeles International Airport’s International
Terminal, Malibu Village and has opened stores in Europe & Asia
including Taipei, Zurich, Basel, Bern and Lausanne. FredSegal.com and

pieces available online. An exclusive launch party will be held Sept.

Lands’ End has teamed up with the youthful, neo-prep brand Rowing Blazers on a limited-edition capsule collection launching this fall. Inspired by Lands’ End’s rich history, and Rowing Blazers’ irreverent, fashion-forward take on classic American style, the unisex capsule,Lands’ End x Rowing Blazers Collection, will feature rugby shirts in 100% cotton and a weekend bag in Lands’ End’s trademark Seagoing Duffle construction. The limited-edition rugby shirts are made in the USA.
End is no stranger to the rugby shirt, creating and designing the
official jerseys for the USA Eagles in the late 1980s. They passed
the field test and have been a beloved part of the brand’s offering
ever since. Rowing Blazers is the official blazer supplier to the USA
men’s and women’s rugby teams.
Rowing Blazers, largely credited with bringing the rugby shirt back to the forefront of menswear today, is a youthful, irreverent clothing brand dedicated to the classics. Known for its casual jackets, rugby shirts, and dad hats, Rowing Blazers has garnered industry praise for its thoughtful, inclusive, and slightly subversive take on traditional American style; and for its simultaneous dedication to authenticity, employing vintage construction techniques in many of its pieces, and outfitting many of the world’s top rowing and rugby clubs.
have seen the Rowing Blazers brand emerge over the last couple of
years and love how they blend streetwear with classic prep,”
said Chieh Tsai, Chief
Product Officer at Lands’ End. “We felt a lot of
synergy between the brands and wanted to highlight a product that was
part of the original Lands’ End assortment back in the 80s. We put a
modern spin on the classic rugby and updated it with Rowing Blazers
flair. We are excited to bring to life this colorful collaboration
between two all-American brands.”
Blazers and Lands’ End might seem at first blush to be at opposite
ends of the spectrum,” said Rowing Blazers founder and
former U.S. team rower Jack
Carlson. “Rowing Blazers is a small, young, New
York-based fashion, borderline streetwear, brand. Lands’ End is a
legendary all-American brand based in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. But
there’s actually a lot of very meaningful shared DNA. Lands’ End
began as a sailing and yacht supply company; Rowing Blazers began as
a supplier and outfitter for rowing clubs. There’s a shared passion
of the stories behind products; a real love for color, simplicity,
and meaning. Perhaps most importantly, the rugby shirt has become a
key category for both brands. I think Lands’ End should be credited
in no small part with introducing the rugby shirt as a staple of the
American wardrobe; taking it from a niche or novelty item and making
it a true staple.”
This limited-edition collection debuted on September 5th, with a new limited-edition rugby shirt being released every month through November. The collection will be available for purchase at www.landsend.com, www.rowingblazers.com, and at the Rowing Blazers Clubhouse in New York.

Ushers In Seasonal Marketing Campaign With A Fresh Cast Including
Musician H.E.R. And Entrepreneur Luka Sabbat
iconic lifestyle brand continues to celebrate its uniqueness and
elevated position by featuring personalities who highlight the
diversity and spirit of UGG®.
Global lifestyle brand UGG® unveiled their sixth UGG® Collective global campaign for Autumn/Winter 2019, featuring a cast of real Californians including GRAMMY® Award-winning musician Gabi Wilson of H.E.R., plus entrepreneur and style influencer Luka Sabbat.
majestic mountains and wild woodlands to buzzing cities and quiet
beach towns, California represents an eclectic paradise that brings
together people from all across the world. For the brand’s new
campaign, UGG® and the cast traveled across San Francisco finding
breathtaking locations in the Presidio and historic Battery
“The UGG Collective consists of Californian musicians, actors, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, photographers and professional athletes. Like UGG®, they are bold, provocative, free-spirited, optimistic and real,” said Andrea O’Donnell, President, Fashion & Lifestyle Brands. “Each season, we select new groups of unique individuals to represent the brand. In telling their stories, we tell ours.”
season the cast includes:
Gabi Wilson/H.E.R. dives into enigma to get listeners to focus on her sound rather than the person behind it. Writing and practicing music since the age of three, the California native’s soulful songs have garnered praise from the likes of Alicia Keys, Bryson Tiller, and Rihanna. Touted as one of R&B’s rising stars, she won her first GRAMMY Award in February 2019 and is part of a growing group of young creatives who are revising identity and art in the digital age.
Luka Sabbat does everything his own way. Growing up between New York and Paris with fashion-industry parents, he has an innate sense of style infused into everything he does—most notably, his self-made project “Hot Mess,” a collaborative collection of unapologetically raw photography, film, clothing, and furniture. Boldly unfiltered, he redefines what it means to be a young creative entrepreneur.
Crystal Moselle is intent on bringing more female perspectives to film, turning her lens on an all-girl cast in Skate Kitchen, which follows a group of unapologetically young, queer, and feminist skateboarders in NYC. Honest in her storytelling, Moselle’s tender curiosity allows her to create soft yet extraordinary moments on screen—uncovering beauty in pain, and truth in fiction.
Daniel Woods never cowers in the face of failure, embracing it as a ladder to greatness. Competitively climbing since age eight, he is currently at the top of his game, winning a gold medal at the IFSC World Cup in 2010 and dominating the American Boulder Series for the last decade. Passionate and daring, he pushes the limits of possibility on a daily basis.
Lola McDonnell is a free-spirited model whose wild heart and love for travel lead her to some of the world’s most beautiful places. Often accompanied by fiancé and fellow Collective member Zackery Michael, she leads an unconventional life of adventure.
Zackery Michael lives life on his own terms as a self-taught photographer who’s always on the road. From shooting fashion editorials in NYC and celebrities in L.A. to documenting the mountain tribes of Myanmar, his photography focuses on intimate shots of people and places, often featuring his girlfriend Lola McDonnell.
brand campaign was shot by photographer Frederic Auerbach and
produced by 3Star Productions. The cast was assembled by casting
director Shay Nielsen, and came to life with the help of wardrobe
stylist Kate Ruth, hair stylist Nikki Providence and makeup artist
Dana Delaney. The locations were given flair and detail with the
assistance of set designer Eli Metcalf.

Numbering some 30,000 objects, the collection is remarkable in depth and breadth, encompassing art of great quality from diverse eras and around the globe.

Focusing on fashion as an art form, the exhibition is arranged thematically to explore designers’ creative use of color and pattern, shape and volume, draping, metallics, bridal traditions and innovations, and exquisite embellishments. Works will be grouped together to offer striking visual comparisons and demonstrate the relentlessly creative spirit of fashion.
A pair of ensembles from fifty years apart opens the exhibition, each embodying fashion-forward dressing for its time.

Company was Founded by Henry Sands Brooks, Two Hundred Years Ago April 7, 1818
On April 7, 2018, Brooks Brothers, America’s oldest retailer, reached its milestone 200-year anniversary. Since opening its doors on April 7, 1818, in New York City, Brooks Brothers has grown from a small family haberdasher to become a global brand that has shaped and defined American style through its product innovations.

“Our anniversary today marks a significant and historic milestone not only for Brooks Brothers but also for the retail industry,” said Claudio Del Vecchio, Chairman, and CEO of Brooks Brothers. “This is a moment to celebrate two hundred years steeped in both tradition and innovation.“
American fashion today is a result of years of groundbreaking innovations and revolutionary disruptions by Brooks Brothers. While perhaps best known today as a “classic” brand, it is important to note that the brand’s founder, Henry Sands Brooks (1772 – 1833), was no traditionalist at all. He was actually a dandy and an influencer among his peers, always on the lookout for the newest and most novel styles for his emporium in lower Manhattan selling “every new style of cloth, of the finest quality, made to order in the best and most fashionable mode.”

It is therefore ironic that some of Brooks Brothers’ most classic items today were the result of either invention and innovation — many radical for their time. In fact, Brooks Brothers is notably responsible for the introduction and popularization of some of fashion’s most iconic and enduring items, including the navy blazer, the reverse striped rep tie, the polo coat and the Number One Sack Suit. Even today’s athleisure trend has its origins in Brooks Brothers’ adaptations of sports clothes for daily life — most notably the 1900 invention of the Original Polo® Button-Down Oxford shirt. Finally, Brooks Brothers was responsible for the single most significant contribution to fashion — ready-to-wear tailored clothing, which was introduced to America in the mid-1800s as a consequence of the Gold Rush.

This sartorial passion was passed down from Henry to his sons, Elisha, Daniel, Edward, and John: the actual Brooks Brothers. These were fashion’s earliest influencers. For the past two centuries — and straight through to today — Brooks Brothers has outfitted an ever-changing world and is consistently pursuing quality and innovation, always with a respect for the past and an eye toward the future.
A Selection of Brooks Brothers Milestones:
Before there was the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, the Statue of Liberty, Grand Central Terminal, and the cities of Hollywood and Chicago, there was Brooks Brothers.
In 1818, Henry Sands Brooks opened clothing shop “H. & D. H. Brooks & Co” on the corner of Catherine and Cherry Streets. The first recorded transaction was actually a loan to a friend.
In 1865, President Abraham Lincoln wore a custom-made Brooks Brothers coat to his second inauguration. Sadly, he was also wearing it when he was assassinated a month later.
Brooks Brothers Original Polo Button Down Oxford
In 1900, Brooks Brothers invented the original button-down-collar shirt after noticing that polo players in England were pinning down their collars while playing.
In 1902, Brooks Brothers introduced the reverse-stripe rep tie, an adaptation of British regimental ties.
In 1915, Brooks Brothers opened its 346 Madison Avenue flagship store, where it remains today.
In 1953, Brooks Brothers invented the first ever non-iron shirt.
In 1957, Brooks Brothers introduced Argyle socks to America.
In 1961, Brooks Brothers designed the “#2 suit” — a favorite of longtime customer President John F. Kennedy.
In 1976, Brooks Brothers launched a full women’s collection.
In 1979, Brooks Brothers was one of the first international brands to expand to Japan.
In 2008, Brooks Brothers acquired Southwick in Massachusetts so that it could resume the manufacturing of tailored clothing in America.
In 2016, Brooks Brothers appointed Zac Posen as creative director for the Women’s Collection.
Throughout its history, Brooks Brothers have forged relationships with generations of customers: artists and politicians, working people and captains of industry, and Hollywood legends, as well as 40 out of 45 U.S. Presidents.
Today, Brooks Brothers currently have more than 280 stores in the United States and more than 700 locations internationally in 45 countries and continue to lead with a pioneering spirit, continually developing materials and designs that deliver performance, innovation and high-quality design.
Pieces featured in the long-form music video included selections from Calvin Klein 205W39NYC Fall/Winter 2017 Collection, formerly known as the Calvin Klein (Luxury Ready-to-Wear) Collection (and recently reconfigured under Simons), Calvin Klein Jeans, Calvin Klein Platinum, and Calvin Klein Underwear.
Simons has had a longstanding appreciation of The xx – Jamie Smith, Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim – and was drawn to the band’s work with McLellan on the music videos for “On Hold” and “Say Something Loving.” Seeing a connection between the videos and his own work at Calvin Klein, Simons was pleased to collaborate on the third video of the trilogy, lending his eye to the architectural and atmospheric elements and utilizing an eclectic cast of Calvin Klein collaborators.
In order to write and record their latest album, I See You, Sim says, the band made a concerted effort to stretch themselves beyond their hometown of London, to seek out the light. “We wanted to do something new,” he says, “so we had to go someplace new, which has spilled over into the artwork and visuals.” In looking for the proper aesthetic depiction of the band’s new, expansive outlook, they called on photographer-filmmaker Alasdair McLellan. “The way he captures skies and a certain light is beautiful,“ says Sim. “And exactly what we wanted.”Continue reading →
Pierre Cardin Visits the Newport Mansions This Summer to Host Runway Show Introducing a Retrospective Exhibition of His Work by The Preservation Society of Newport County
Legendary fashion designer Pierre Cardin will personally host a fashion runway show at The Breakers this June, providing a spectacular introduction to a new fashion exhibition highlighting his most iconic work that will be on display at Rosecliff, another iconic Newport Mansion, through the end of 2017.

Trudy Coxe, CEO & Executive Director of The Preservation Society of Newport County, said, “We are honored by Mr. Cardin’s support of the Preservation Society in this amazing way, and especially that he will personally travel to Newport from Paris to be with us in June. As perhaps the world’s most iconic fashion designer, it is only appropriate that his fashions will be featured in two of the world’s most iconic historic properties, The Breakers and Rosecliff.”
Pierre Cardin: 70 Years of Innovation, will open in the exhibition gallery at Rosecliff on May 27, featuring 42 original pieces from Mr. Cardin’s private archives that document and celebrate his prolific career from the 1950s through his 2016 spring/summer collection.
Located at 548 Bellevue Avenue, this beautiful house was completed in 1902 for Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs. Architect Stanford White modeled the house after the Grand Trianon at Versailles. Rosecliff was the setting for many spectacular Newport parties. More recently it has been used as a setting for several Hollywood movies, including The Great Gatsby, True Lies, Amistad, and 27 Dresses.
Pierre Cardin, 1990 (courtesy Archives Pierre Cardin)
Pierre Cardin (b. 1922) is a product of immediate post-WW II possibilities and his designs continue to reflect his engagement with a changing world. Beginning with his haute couture work with Christian Dior in 1946, he helped develop the ‘New Look’ that would forever change mid-twentieth-century fashions. Just four years later Cardin founded his own company, and in 1959, broke with tradition by presenting a ready-to-wear women’s collection. This was a tremendous feat given that custom-fitted clothing for wealthy patrons ruled the great Parisian fashion houses at this time. Cardin was a pioneer in making high fashion accessible to a larger audience.Continue reading →

In addition to the television commercial campaign, BEARPAW will also advertise with publications such as Marie Claire, InStyle, Popsugar, Refiney29, Footwear News and Earnshaw’s over the next year.
Without dwelling too deeply on the root cause (for the moment), it’s very rare to find black fashion designers represented in a great many of the recent costume exhibitions at museums great and small across the United States. At this moment, if you want to see a decent and wide-ranging look at black fashion designers, you would have to visit the recently opened National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C., where designs from Tracy Reese, other black fashion designers and other creative men and women are on permanent display. The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (The Museum at FIT, Seventh Avenue at 27 Street, New York City 10001-5992), since 1975, has continuously work to create exhibitions, programs, and publications that are both entertaining and educational. Black Fashion Designer is eye-opening, entertaining and above all else, quite educational. It’s a good start.

Black Fashion Designers, opening December 6, 2016 (Fashion & Textile History Gallery, December 6 – May 16, 2017) at The Museum at FIT, examines the significant, but often unrecognized, impact that designers of African descent have had on fashion. The exhibition features approximately 75 fashions by more than 60 designers. Although there have been exhibitions (few and far between) on individual black designers, this is the first major exhibition in many years that highlights the global history of black fashion designers from the 1950s to the present. All of the objects on display are part of the permanent collection of The Museum at FIT.
Patrick Kelly, dress, Fall/Winter 1986, France, Museum purchase, 2016.48.1
Black Fashion Designers opens with a fall 1986 evening dress by Patrick Kelly, embellished with vintage buttons. Buttons were a recurring motif for Kelly, whose grandmother would mend the family’s clothing. Alongside it is a fall 2012 ensemble by Nigerian-born, British designer Duro Olowu, whose knowledge of international textiles and affinity for mixing prints is evident in an intricate lace cape.
The introductory section of the exhibition also includes a beautiful wedding gown by society dressmaker Ann Lowe, who is best known for designing Jacqueline Kennedy’s wedding dress. Lawrence Steele, a Milan-based African-American designer, is represented by a stunning black evening dress accented with Swarovski crystals. Lagos-based designer Amaka Osakwe was inspired by the rich history of Nigerian story-telling when creating her contemporary, cut-fringe dress. Another highlight is Laura Smalls’s red-and-white floral print dress—famously worn by First Lady Michelle Obama when she sang with rapper Missy Elliot on James Corden’s carpool karaoke.

Black Fashion Designers is organized into eight themes, beginning with “Breaking Into the Industry,” which examines black designers working in New York. During the 1950s and early 1960s, Arthur McGee and Wesley Tann challenged discrimination in the industry. Other designers followed in their footsteps, playing a major role in building New York as a fashion capital. During the 1970s and 1980s, for example, Willi Smith built a large, international fashion house from his quirky twists on classic sportswear, seen in a multicolored, striped ensemble. Today, Tracy Reese is an indispensable mainstay. Her multicolored striped gown shows her feminine and elegant style.
Lawrence Steele, dress, Spring 2002, Italy, Gift of Lawrence Steele, 2016.62.1
The next theme, “The Rise of the Black Designer,” focuses on the period from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s, when disco music and dance clubs inspired fashion. Stephen Burrows’s gold evening pajamas and Scott Barrie’s black-and-red silk jersey wrap dress, defined the era’s glamorous, body-conscious style. The fashion and mainstream press of the 1970s celebrated black designers such as Burrows and Barrie, in contrast to today, when only one percent of the designers shown on VogueRunway.com are black.Continue reading →

Costume Institute Benefit on May 1 with Co-Chairs Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, and Anna Wintour; and Honorary Chair Rei Kawakubo
Exhibition Dates: May 4–September 4, 2017
Member Previews: May 2–May 3, 2017
Exhibition Location: The Met Fifth Avenue, Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Exhibition Hall, Floor 2
As expected (and the most gossiped-about morsel of news during the European leg of the Spring/Summer 2017 womenswear fashion shows), The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced today that The Costume Institute’s Spring 2017 exhibition will be Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons, on view from May 4 through September 4, 2017 (preceded on May 1 by The Costume Institute Benefit). Presented in the Museum’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Exhibition Hall on the second floor, the exhibition will examine Kawakubo’s fascination with interstitiality, or the space between boundaries. Existing within and between entities—self/other, object/subject, fashion/anti-fashion—Kawakubo’s work challenges conventional notions of beauty, good taste, and, ultimately, fashionability. Not a traditional retrospective, the thematic exhibition will be The Costume Institute’s first monographic show on a living designer since the Yves Saint Laurent exhibition in 1983.
“In blurring the art/fashion divide, Kawakubo asks us to think differently about clothing,” said Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Met. “Curator Andrew Bolton will explore work that often looks like sculpture in an exhibition that will challenge our ideas about fashion’s role in contemporary culture.”
Rei Kawakubo said, “I have always pursued a new way of thinking about design…by denying established values, conventions, and what is generally accepted as the norm. And the modes of expression that have always been most important to me are fusion…imbalance… unfinished… elimination…and absence of intent.”
The exhibition will be curated by Andrew Bolton, Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute, who will collaborate on the exhibition design with Rei Kawakubo. Nathan Crowley will serve as exhibition production designer for the fifth time, working in collaboration with The Met’s Design Department.
The exhibition will feature approximately 120 examples of Kawakubo’s womenswear designs for Comme des Garçons, dating from her first Paris runway show in 1981 to her most recent collection. Organized thematically rather than chronologically, the examples will examine Kawakubo’s revolutionary experiments in interstitiality or “in-betweenness”. By situating her designs within and between dualities such as East/West, male/female, and past/present, Kawakubo not only challenges the rigidity and artificiality of such binaries, but also resolves and dissolves them. To reflect this, mannequins will be arranged at eye level with no physical barriers, thereby dissolving the usual distance between objects on display and museum visitors.
“Rei Kawakubo is one of the most important and influential designers of the past 40 years,” said Andrew Bolton, Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute. “By inviting us to rethink fashion as a site of constant creation, recreation, and hybridity, she has defined the aesthetics of our time.”
In celebration of the opening, The Met‘s Costume Institute Benefit, also known as The Met Gala, will take place on Monday, May 1, 2017. The evening’s co-chairs will be Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, and Anna Wintour. Rei Kawakubo will serve as Honorary Chair. Raul Avila will produce the gala décor, which he has done since 2007. The event is The Costume Institute’s main source of annual funding for exhibitions, publications, acquisitions, and capital improvements.
Special support for the exhibition and gala will come from Apple, Condé Nast, Farfetch, H&M, and Maison Valentino.
A publication, authored by Bolton and designed by Fabien Baron, will accompany the exhibition. It will be published by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and distributed by Yale University Press.
A special feature on the Museum’s website, www.metmuseum.org/ReiKawakubo, provides information about the exhibition. Follow on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to join the conversation about the exhibition and gala. Use #MetKawakubo, #CostumeInstitute, and #MetGala on Instagram and Twitter.

Uniforms for Delta’s non-customer facing employees were developed by clothing retailer Land’s End with design inspiration and color consultation from Posen. Delta announced the production and design partnership with Land’s End last week.
“The world’s best employees deserve the best uniforms and this new collection is classically influenced, yet modern,” said Ed Bastian, Delta’s CEO. “Zac and the Delta team worked closely with our people to create timeless and fashionable pieces that reflect the thoughtful and innovative spirit of Delta.“
Posen partnered directly with Delta employees from nearly every work group to design the collection, developing a functional wardrobe fit for Delta’s diverse employee group and the environments where they work. Employees influenced the design and final selection of each uniform piece.
“We wanted Delta employees to look glamorous on the job without sacrificing functionality and style,” said Posen. “I worked alongside employees to understand how they interact with the clothes they wear and developed a look that empowers and excites, because we want Delta’s global workforce to exude the confidence and thoughtfulness that reflects the airline’s brand.”
Posen’s designs drape employees in a wholly-reimagined mix of colors dubbed Passport Plum,Cruising Cardinal and Groundspeed Graphite, with accents of Skyline Slate and Traveling Thistle to bring a cohesive look across customer-facing and technical job functions.
There are a number of subtle details including a signature winged collar on the women’s Traveling Thistle blouse, the Delta logo, also known as the widget, accented throughout the collection and for non-customer-facing employees, reflective Delta widgets on high-visibility outerwear.
At the Delta Hub Runway Unveiling, some of the items in the lineup for the flight attendants and customer service agents include a feminine Passport Plum V-neck dress, peplum sweater, wrap dress, ottoman skirt suit and swing jacket. For men, a Groundspeed Graphite three-piece suit, Passport Plum crew neck sweater and widget-printed tie, among other pieces. For technical employees working on the airport ramp or in Delta’s TechOps division, a mid-layer sweater,three-in-one ANSI jacket and rapid-dry polo shirt are among the lineup.Continue reading →

“I wanted my love of the holidays to come to life with this ‘ugly’ sweater collection,” stated Goldberg. “There’s no better way to celebrate the season than by wearing or giving an ‘ugly’ holiday sweater and spending time with family and friends, which is really what it’s all about.”

“Lord & Taylor celebrates the holiday season unlike any other retailer – from our iconic windows to the ever-growing gifting shops,” stated Liz Rodbell, President of Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor. “The collection fit seamlessly into our plans for this year’s ‘Happy Christmas’ gifting shop, which will feature a variety of novelty items. We are thrilled to include Whoopi in our holiday traditions; we know it will surprise and delight our customers during this special time of year.“
To celebrate the launch of the Whoopi Goldberg sweater collection, Lord & Taylor‘s Fifth Avenue flagship will dedicate one of its iconic windows to the collection with a special installation. Goldberg will join Lord & Taylor on Tuesday, November 15 to unveil the window for New Yorkers and tourists alike to enjoy through the Thanksgiving holiday.
The eight limited-edition styles will be available for purchase at 37 Lord & Taylor stores as well as on www.lordandtaylor.com; all sweaters retail for $139.
