Wrangler® Brings Iconic Designs to Fred Segal Sunset With Capsule Collection

Immersive 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.

The 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.

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. (Photo: Business Wire)

Wrangler 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 fresh twist.

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 attitudes. (Photo: Business Wire)

The 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.

  • 1919: 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.
  • 1960s: 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 attitudes.
  • 1970s: 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.
  • 1980s: 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.

Fred 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.

Fred 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.”

Today, 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 on Instagram @FredSegal.

To complete the pop up experience, guests can grab a selfie next to a custom Wrangler Indian Bobber Scout and pose in front of the large Wrangler logo that changes with each decade.

The Wrangler capsule collection apparel will be available in-store exclusively at Fred Segal Sunset for a limited time, with select pieces available online. An exclusive launch party will be held Sept. 19 for influencers and media to experience the first featured era – the 70s.

UGG Collective Launches For Autumn/Winter 2019

Brand Ushers In Seasonal Marketing Campaign With A Fresh Cast Including Musician H.E.R. And Entrepreneur Luka Sabbat

The 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.

From 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 Chamberlain.

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.”

This 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.

The 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.

Legendary Bootmaker Of The American West, Lucchese, Announces New Collaborations And Retail Partnership With Neiman Marcus

Ralph Lauren, Brandon Maxwell, King Ranch, and Erin Wasson Help Mark the Brand’s 135th Year in Business

Lucchese Bootmaker, headquartered in El Paso Texas, is celebrating its 135th anniversary this year with a variety of partnerships and capsule collections. Known for making the finest cowboys boots on the planet, Lucchese has always balanced rugged, frontier traditions with an appeal to those focused on aesthetic.

Below are a few of the highlights of how Lucchese is marking its anniversary this year:

Erin Wasson

Erin Wasson in the Jacqueline Boot: Designed with Texas native Erin Wasson, the Jacqueline boot ($1,595 with free ground shipping) is a traditional western silhouette for the modern woman. The smooth black goat is accented by white stitch pull holes and piping. Single stitch welt construction. Leather sole. Handmade in Texas.

  • ERIN WASSON: Continuing their presence in the style arena, Lucchese just released a limited collection of fashion-focused boots with model/designer Erin Wasson. The brand has partnered with another iconic Texas brand — Neiman Marcus – to provide wider access to both traditional boots and fashion boots alike. This move signifies a shift in consumer demand, as exotic cowboy boots are now becoming a staple in consumer wardrobes, available at a wider range of retailers ranging from Western-focused to luxury fashion.

    The King Ranch Barn Boot

    The King Ranch Barn Boot

  • KING RANCH: Lucchese has partnered with another legendary Texas brand, the King Ranch, to produce a limited edition collection of boots that are rugged enough for the harsh environment of South Texas. In addition to this partnership, Lucchese has released a well-reviewed technical product called the Barn Boot, its first foray into the “work boot” category. The mud and grime releasing outsole and cushioned insole was an immediate hit with both new and long-time Lucchese loyalists.
  • RALPH LAUREN: In addition to staying true to its roots with traditional products, Lucchese was in the spotlight during New York Fashion Week in September. Ralph Lauren, who has worn Lucchese boots for many years, selected them as his favorite bootmaker. Lucchese worked with Mr. Lauren to create co-branded boots which debuted in Central Park at the legendary designer’s 50th-anniversary collection show.
  • BRANDON MAXWELL: Fashion designer and fellow Texan Brandon Maxwell used custom boots as the invite for guests at his Spring/Summer 2019 New York Fashion Week show.”It was a dream to work with Lucchese on our invitations,” said Brandon. “Lucchese is a quintessential Texas brand so to share this bit of my home state with our guests immediately showcased hospitality. Seeing videos of friends and guests receive this big Texas dose of generosity made it all the more special.

Texas-based Lucchese is a legendary bootmaker and iconic brand of the American West. Applying the same craftsmanship principles and techniques since 1883, Lucchese artisans use only the finest leathers, preeminent materials and a proprietary twisted cone last to construct boots of unrivaled quality, fit, comfort and style.
