A Vivienne Westwood Documentary Is Being Released

BIG SCREEN MOMENT: Dogwoof, a leading film distributor in the U.K., is set to release a documentary on the queen of punk, Vivienne Westwood next Spring. Titled “Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist,” the feature-length film by Lorna Tucker, aims to act as a celebration of the British designer’s artistry, activism and her cultural significance within the fashion industry.
It will feature interviews with Westwood’s inner circle of collaborators, friends and family, including her son Joseph Corré. Tucker, who has previously produced short films for Westwood as well as for brands such as Nike and Alexander McQueen, said she wants to dig deeper into Westwood’s struggle to success and her intimate relationship with Malcolm McLaren during the Seventies.
The footage will be a blend of newly shot observational footage and old archival shots, which aim to portray the designer’s beautiful world of chaos and creation through her own words and those of her loved ones.
The documentary will compete at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, taking place on Jan. 20 as part of the World Cinema Documentary Competition. Dogwoof has a reputation for picking up critically acclaimed fashion documentaries and has released “Dries” earlier this year, as well as “Bill Cunningham New York” and “Dior

Prabal Gurung, Mastercard Team Up for Love Is Love Holiday Collection

BREAKFAST WITH PRABAL: Prabal Gurung came out Thursday morning to the Sunken Living Room at Spring Place in New York to spread the love. He has designed a limited edition of sweatshirts, in collaboration with Mastercard, with sayings such as “Love Is Love,” that will benefit the charity, Shikshya Foundation Nepal. Ten percent of the proceeds from the sale of the sweatshirts, which retail for $295, will go to this charity that facilitates the education of Nepalese children in need from primary school through higher education.
Some 200 sweatshirts were made, in two different styles and three colors. One of the designs says “Love Is Love,” while another has three interlocking hearts in yellow, orange and red, a take on the Mastercard logo.
“It’s a way of giving back,” said Gurung, who noted that the charity, of which he is a founding member, has helped 300 children with their education since it began six years ago and has impacted 15,000 lives. “I have a lot to be grateful for and I live my dream,” said Gurung, the 38-year-old Nepalese-American fashion designer, who is based in New York.

Cartier Doubles Its Space, Becomes Largest Jeweler at Harrods

DOUBLING UP: Cartier is putting its money on Harrods, where it has doubled the size of its space and now boasts the biggest boutique on the fine jewelry floor.
The jeweler tapped the architect Laura Gonzalez to design a new shop concept that made its debut this week at Harrods’ Fine Jewelry Rooms. The shop-in-shop spans 3,552 square feet, an area that was previously occupied by six boutiques.
Classic wooden pillars link the different rooms while display cases are finished in bronze and walls feature handcrafted glass and textured, metallic paint. There are marble details and velvet sofas, while a pair of modernist geometric chandeliers light up the rooms. Cartier said the aim was to create a welcoming, open space that will draw passersby into the boutique.
In addition to the main salons, which include separate areas for the prestige, diamond, men’s and women’s collections, there is a corridor that displays the brand’s leather and exotics accessories and links the boutique to Harrods. There are also areas with sliding doors that can be transformed into private VIP spaces.

Paris Men’s Week to Open One Day Earlier

EARLY BIRDS: There’ll be no rest for those headed to Europe for men’s, with Paris closing the gap with Milan. According to a provisional calendar released by the Chambre Syndicale on Thursday Paris Men’s Week will now open a day earlier, on Jan. 16, albeit kicking off at 5 p.m.
The week’s opening acts are four young brands: Palomo Spain, France’s Nïuku, Belgian-Kurdish label Namacheko and Germany’s GmbH, with all but Namacheko presenting on the official calendar for the first time.
As reported, other new additions to the official Paris Men’s runway schedule, due to wrap on Jan. 21, include Vetements and Dunhill London.
Off-White will be returning to Paris after showing in Florence in June as a special guest of the 92nd edition of international men’s wear trade show Pitti Uomo, with Sweden’s Acne Studios also making a return.
New highlights on the official presentation lineup include Myar, the solo project of Andrea Rosso, son of entrepreneur Renzo Rosso and the creative director of Diesel licenses, as well as cult Japanese label Takahiromiyashita the Soloist, which earlier in the month will stage a runway show back-to-back with Undercover as fellow guest designers of Pitti Uomo, marking its first show outside of Japan.

Kiosk Takes Its International, Eclectic Merchandising to London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts

The founders of Kiosk have taken their indie-minded approach to retail to the Institute of Contemporary Arts.
In 2005, Kiosk was created in SoHo in response to downtown Manhattan’s shift to hyper-commercialism and the beginning of massive rent hikes. It now has a long-term position inside the ICA’s entrance near the museum’s book store.
Before “discovery” and “storytelling” were buzzwords for boutiques, Alisa Grifo opened the artisically styled Kiosk at 95 Spring Street. Led only by a small makeshift sign on the street, many shoppers had that can-this-be-right feeling as they traipsed up a beaten set of stairs surrounded by graffiti-covered walls, wandered down a hallway and entered through a beaded door curtain. Looking more like an installation, than a shop, Kiosk showcased independently produced, affordable items that had been sourced from different parts of the world. “We wanted a place where people could look, learn, touch and talk about what we were showing and wax on about anything in the world,” Grifo said.
Over the years, she and her husband and business partner Marco ter Haar Romeny trekked to different countries, rooting out common but emblematic keepsakes — Icelandic candy, Portuguese beer glasses and an Italian metal tape dispenser among them. They

Kering Appoints Nathalie Diamantis as Jewelry President for the Americas

Kering has appointed Nathalie Diamantis as its president for jewelry in the Americas. She is tasked with growing the businesses of Kering’s three fine jewelry brands: Pomellato, Boucheron and Dodo.
Diamantis’ oversight spans North America and Latin America, and she began her new job last week. Diamantis replaces Alain Huy in the role, which he had held since January 2016. Huy is no longer with Kering, a company spokesperson confirmed. His next move could not immediately be learned.
Diamantis joins Kering with experience in the North American jewelry market. Previously, she served as Bulgari’s senior vice president for retail, travel retail and wholesale for North America. Diamantis has also worked for Van Cleef & Arpels as the jeweler’s vice president for wholesale distribution in the Americas.

J.W. Anderson Nixes London Men’s Show to Pursue Coed Model

HIS AND HERS: The coed juggernaut keeps gathering steam.
One of London’s most anticipated men’s shows, J.W. Anderson, will vacate that calendar from January and shift to a coed display timed with the British capital’s fashion week for women in February.
The fall 2018 collections are to be paraded jointly on Feb. 17, and the London-based brand will stage two shows a year and not four.
In the past month alone, Balenciaga and Salvatore Ferragamo are among brands shifting to a combined women’s and men’s format from next season.
Etro, Dsquared2, Calvin Klein, Burberry, Kenzo, Moschino, Vivienne Westwood, Tom Ford and Cédric Charlier are among others to have already jumped on the bandwagon.
Generally, having one display instead of two per season allows brands to reduce costs, while presenting a cohesive fashion message that works for many labels in an increasingly gender-blurry world — and one increasingly thin on men’s fashion publications.
Prized for his fast-paced shows and daring designs, Anderson was recently honored by the British Fashion Council as British Designer of the Year for Women’s Wear for his J.W. Anderson collection and Accessories Designer of the Year for Loewe during a gala event at Royal Albert Hall.

London’s Design Museum to Salute Azzedine Alaïa With Retrospective

ALL ABOUT AZZEDINE: London’s newly opened Design Museum in Holland Park will look back on the life and work of Azzedine Alaïa in a show that the designer had helped to curate before he died of heart failure last month.
The retrospective, which Alaïa had worked on with Mark Wilson, chief curator of the Groninger Museum, will look at the impact his work has had worldwide.
The show, “Azzedine Alaïa: The Couturier,” will run from May 10 to Oct. 7 and feature specially commissioned pieces of design and sculpture by Konstantin Grcic, Marc Newson and Kris Ruhs, with whom Alaïa collaborated in 2015. The 2015 show at the designer’s Paris gallery called “The Hanging Garden” featured an installation of 45,000 shapes.
Alaïa is recognized for his ability to drape and sculpt on the human frame with different materials, using innovative cuts, fits and tailoring methods. In July, he returned to the couture calendar after a six-year hiatus and was ready to open a long-awaited London flagship early next year.
Alaïa was celebrated by fashion designers new and old in the industry. Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons described Alaïa as a designer who “worked with his heart and soul.”
Last week at the Fashion Awards in London, Alaïa was top of mind, with lineup

Pharrell Williams, Alessandra Ambrosio Turn Out for Rimowa’s Pop-up Party

“There are so many pictures of me rolling my suitcases through the airport so I always consider the bags, too. Luggage is a huge part of my life. It’s something I’ve invested a lot in and I take a lot of time choosing,” said Dita Von Teese, who showed up camera-ready on Tuesday evening for Rimowa’s celebration of its Rodeo Drive pop-up concept shop. Also in the mix were Pharrell Williams and his wife Helen Lasichanh, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jasmine Sanders, stylist B. Akerlund and Shaun Ross.
Alexandre Arnault, the brand’s chief executive officer, showed off the latest products and touted the fun and interactive environment, as well as the tech innovations for the luxury luggage. Said Von Teese, “When I heard about these digital tags they have, I got extremely excited about that. If it [also] has a bag tracker in it, bonus points. I want to know where that bag is at all times.”
Airport dressing has become something of its own genre among celebrities, who never like to be unprepared for the cameras. Von Teese said, “It’s something I take into consideration because it only takes once when you land in Austria or somewhere and there’s full paparazzi waiting for you,

Brooks Brothers Gets Festive for St. Jude

It’s been over a decade — and $16.5 million — since Brooks Brothers threw its support behind St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
And Tuesday night, the retailer tuned its Madison Avenue flagship into holiday central for its annual fund-raising event for the facility.
Following on the heels of a similar party at its Rodeo Drive store earlier this month, the New York edition drew over 400 guests including Andrew Rannells, Cara Buono, Christopher Hanke, Erich Bergen, Holly Taylor, Jesse Palmer, Julee Cerda, Max von Essen, Michael Nathanson, Michael Zegen, Mike Doyle, Miriam Morales and Sean Avery.

In addition to shoppers and supporters, a number of former patients from St. Jude also attended and told their stories about how the hospital saved their lives after they were diagnosed with cancer — and at no cost to them or their families.
Marlo Thomas, national outreach director and daughter of founder Danny Thomas, said it costs $2.6 million a day to run St. Jude, so generous donations are needed to continue to fund the hospital’s efforts.
For 12 years, Brooks Brothers and its chief executive officer Claudio Del Vecchio have

Guggenheim Reveals the Short List of Six Artists Competing for Hugo Boss Prize 2018

American artists have made a strong showing, accounting for half of the six finalists for the Hugo Boss Prize 2018.
This year’s finalists include Simone Leigh, Frances Stark and Wu Tsang from the U.S., and Bouchra Khalili from Morocco, Teresa Margolles from Mexico and Emeka Ogboh from Nigeria. Women outnumbered men this edition by four to two. In addition to the international acclaim, the winner will land an exhibition at the Fifth Avenue museum in 2019 and a $100,00 cash prize administered through the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. The winner will be named next fall.
Dividing her time between Berlin and Oslo, Khalili, works in film, video and photography exploring subjects like migration, language and belonging. Through her sculptures, installations and actions, Margolles addresses darker matters like violence, death and poverty — sometimes incorporating bodily fluids sourced from bloodshed or traumatic experiences. Another two-city artist, Ogboh travels between Lagos and Berlin concentrates on sound installations to capture specific elements of a hub to examine nationalism and xenophobia at times.
From her studio in Los Angeles, Stark paints, draws, does collage, video, performance and digital performances to examine the human condition. The Brooklyn-based Leigh also works in a range of mediums — sculpture, video and

Prada Releases Video Series

MILAN — Prada is embracing the holiday season releasing a series of witty short movies directed by American filmmaker Autumn de Wilde and celebrating the art of gift-giving.
Named “The Postman’s Gifts,” the video project is divided into two main story lines, each comprising four, non-sequential episodes.
The first story line is named “The Postman Dreams 2,” as it is a sequel of the brand’s first namesake collaboration with de Wilde, launched in 2015, while the second is titled “The Postman’s Gifts.”
Staged in different, surreal and color-saturated sets, each episode of the “The Postman Dreams 2” series focuses on the brand’s signature Prada Galleria bag and features Hollywood actor Elijah Wood playing the role of the postman.
Available on Prada’s social media accounts and web site, the first two episodes “The Bogey” and “The Troublemaker” saw Wood’s character deliver the iconic bag to Emma Roberts, playing herself as a movie star, and Sasha Frolova, staging a cat-and-mouse game with the postman, respectively.

Juventus Looks to Japan, China, Australia to Build Licensed Product Sales With Help From IMG

CHARGING EAST: Like scores of other big-name entities, Juventus Football Club SpA has set its sights Eastward to build licensed product sales in Japan, China and Australia.
After lining up IMG last year to broker licensing deals in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, the 120-year-old soccer club has added apparel, gadgets, car accessories and luggage. To try to extend its reach in Japan, the Italian organization will be selling two more apparel lines for women and men, including one imprinted with cartoonish Juventus illustrations early next year. The other will feature specially designed jackets, shirts, sweatshirts and polo shirts. Sales potential is strong, considering the club has a social media reach of nearly 44.8 million. Never mind the followings of players like forward Paulo Dybala, who reportedly gained eight million Instagram followers this year alone.
Fans in Japan will also have the chance to buy branded car accessories such as seat covers, cushions and sun shades, as well as game cards, phone cases, key chains, wallets and mugs. Juventus luggage and other apparel is already sold in China. Marcelo Cordeiro, IMG’s licensing director, said, “The unveiling of Juventus’ new identity and logo presents many exciting opportunities for future and continued brand extension.

Geox Extends Breathable Technology to New Outerwear Range

THE JACKET THAT BREATHES: Geox — the company that patented “the shoe that breathes” — has developed its heat-release concept within the brand’s outerwear range for fall.
The Italian brand, known mostly for its footwear, applied its patented high-tech “Respira” solution to a new range of outerwear, both for men and women. The lineup includes two styles — Amphibiox is a hooded parka with large front pockets, while Nebula is a more urban outerwear piece peppered by zippers in contrast hues. The jackets, which retail at $395, can be purchased at the brand’s flagship stores, as well as on geox.com.
In keeping with the company’s aim to deliver products characterized by thermoregulation features, the lineup takes advantage of convection, such as the likeliness of hot air to move upward, and features a spacer between the lining and the outer shell. Through a patented breathing tape located on the shoulders, heat moves away, giving the clothes a 40 percent improvement in breathability. Geox also held laboratory tests to prove this high-tech solution’s efficacy.
Geox, which operates 1,095 monobrand stores and sells its collections in 10,000 multibrand boutiques, revealed in May a new store concept, which made its debut in Rome, Milan, London, Toronto and Kuala Lumpur. The concept’s high-tech

Adidas Outdoor and Parley for the Oceans Continue Design Collaboration

MAKING WAVES: Sportswear brand Adidas Outdoor and Parley for the Oceans, a program that combats pollution by reusing collected ocean plastic as a raw material for consumer goods, said they are continuing their partnership due to sustained momentum from consumers. Parley’s recycled material is spun into yarn from plastic ocean waste collected from beaches and coastal communities to be reused in manufacturing footwear and apparel.
Adidas Outdoor, which has worked with the organization since 2016, manufactured a variety of jackets, parkas and footwear styles with Parley’s yarn for its fall 2018 collection. Adidas Outdoor said the items are made with 100 percent recycled polyester. The material is breathable and features waterproof capabilities that protect from wind, rain and snow.
Greg Thomsen, the managing director of Adidas Outdoor, told WWD that the brand has “seen continual momentum for sustainable and environmentally friendly material.” He added that, “While this isn’t a new concept in the outdoor industry, mainstream consumers are now on board. They are concerned with not only how their apparel is made, but also where the raw materials are coming from. Meeting challenges with innovation and imagination is yielding new and exciting solutions that not only alleviate issues at hand, but also

Goop Links With LeCatch’s Marlein Rentmeester on Marmy Coat

Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle company Goop has linked with everyone from Stella McCartney to Michael Kors on exclusive merchandise, and its latest tie-up comes with LeCatch blogger and former Lucky editor Marlien Rentmeester. The Marmy army jacket, which Rentmeester unveiled for a Claire V. collaboration, has gotten a holiday upgrade for Goop with the addition of a removable faux-fur stole and cuffs. The piece, which retails for $595, will launch on Goop.com Dec. 14 and is also available at the Goop Lab store in the Brentwood Country Mart.
“I don’t think my wardrobe could survive without an army jacket. They’re just so versatile,” said Rentmeester, who is often seen about town wearing hers over a cocktail dress. “My goal with Goop was to design the all-time, most sophisticated army jacket, one that’s polished, luxe and eternally chic. It goes beyond the basic by essentially being three jackets in one flattering one-size-fits-all piece. The detachable, ribbon-trimmed stole was inspired by Jon Snow’s lush fur capes on ‘Game of Thrones.’ I wanted it to look warm and extravagant, something that I could throw over a dress or a cozy sweater and look ‘done.’ The fur arm trim is also removable, which allows the jacket

French Fur Federation Sets Up Help Line for Victims of Antifur Violence

FUR REAL: As the fashion world increasingly turns its back on fur, the French Fur Federation is fighting back with the creation of a dedicated center for providing information on the fur industry called Le Centre National d’Information sur la Fourrure, or CNIF, and even a help line for victims of antifur violence.
In response, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals on Tuesday released a statement declaring that it is “time for compassion.”
“Today, most consumers do not want to wear the skin of animals that have been abused in this way, and for something so unnecessary, considering the number of cruelty-free vegan alternatives that are winning over the fashion world,” said PETA.
“As long as there is clothing made from animal skin in shop windows, PETA, and other associations and activists defending the cause, will continue to defend the interests of the animals that are tortured and slaughtered to make them. We also encourage consumers who are concerned about animal welfare to call for a ban on fur production in France.”
As reported, real fur was thrust under the spotlight during the spring collections season, where antifur protesters made their presence strongly felt. In New York, protesters disrupted a presentation of

Jeffrey Rudes Puts Luxury Men’s Line on Hiatus

Jeffrey Rudes has put his luxury men’s wear collection on hold.
In May, the Los Angeles-based Rudes closed his 5,800-square-foot store at 57 Greene Street in SoHo. The store opened in July 2015 and was home to his eponymously named collection. It was his only freestanding store and had also served as the setting for his men’s wear presentations during New York Fashion Week: Men’s.
At the time of the store closing, Rudes said he planned to focus on the brand’s more lucrative online business and select wholesale accounts.
Last week, an eviction notice was pinned to the door of the shop, citing nonpayment of rent and a return of the empty retail location to the landlord, 57-63 Greene Realty LLC.
Reached via e-mail, Rudes said he “gave the store back to the landlord last month.” At the same time, he addressed a line on his former e-commerce site that read: “Coming back soon.”
Rudes wrote: “I put the business on hiatus for a while. I am reworking the business model to enter into the luxury designer market from another point of view.”
Rudes is best known as the founder of J Brand, a business he created in 2005. He resigned as chief executive officer in May

Kering Hosts Party to Celebrate Agnès Varda’s Honorary Oscar

GOING FOR GOLD: Kering threw open the doors of its Paris headquarters on Monday for a party celebrating filmmaker Agnès Varda’s honorary Oscar.
Well-wishers including Isabelle Huppert, Jane Birkin, Louis Garrel, Jacques Audiard and fellow Oscar-winning director Michel Hazanavicius thronged around the diminutive director in the chapel of the historic building, built during the reign of Louis XIII.
Many of them wore badges proclaiming “I ❤️ Agnès” handed out by UniFrance, the agency dedicated to promoting French films around the world, which co-hosted the event. JR, the French photographer and artist who stars with Varda in their recent documentary “Faces Places,” sidled up proffering roasted chestnuts.
The Belgian-born director, 89, lapped up the attention, though she played down the fact that she was the first female director to be awarded an honorary Oscar.
“You shouldn’t be making a big deal the fact that I am a woman, but you should be making a big deal of the fact that they chose someone who does not represent Hollywood values, because as I said in my speech, I am not bankable,” Varda told WWD between spoonfuls of pumpkin soup.

Holly Fulton to Lead Fashion Design Course

NEW ROLE: British designer Holly Fulton is taking an academic turn, becoming head of fashion at the Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts.
Fulton, known for her graphic prints and bold use of color, had previously worked with students as a visiting lecturer at the Royal College of Art and Kingston University and also as part of her global ambassador role at Graduate Fashion Week.
“Education is something I am passionate about and this position feels very natural for me. I have had some great mentors in my career and now I am in the right place to share what I’ve learned with students, while helping them to develop their own style and practice. I intend to give them an experience they would not be able to get at any other university,” said Fulton, who will continue to design her own label.
Karin Askham, head of collage at the CSVPA, an independent arts school, said that it was important for the school to appoint a practicing fashion designer who can equip students with the skills needed for working in the industry today.
