DKNY Licenses H. Best for Men’s Underwear

DKNY is diving into the lucrative men’s underwear market.
The brand, which is owned by G-III Apparel Group, has signed a license with H. Best Ltd. to develop men’s underwear and loungewear. The collection, which will hit better department and specialty stores for the holiday, will include cotton briefs, boxer briefs, crewneck tees and V-neck tees.

The DKNY men’s briefs by H. Best.

“DKNY has a modern, confident and strong aesthetic, and consumers have always responded well to the brand’s approach to dressing men,” said Tom Speight, chief executive officer and president of H. Best. “Each garment has technical attributes that are perfect for today’s on-the-go guy: comfortable, tagless waistbands, and antimicrobial attributes among other experience-enhancing qualities.”
Jeff Goldfarb, executive vice president of G-III Apparel, said: “Building this category is a core element in our growth strategy for the brand, and we look forward to partnering with them as we work together to launch this new collection for DKNY.”
The $2.4 billion New York-based G-III purchased Donna Karan International, parent of the DKNY label, from LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton for $650 million at the end of 2016. The men’s collection was reintroduced to the market last April after being absent since the fall of 2015.

EXCLUSIVE: Neil Barrett to Debut First London Store

MILAN — Neil Barrett is boosting its distribution with key openings and a new web site.
As a first step of a retail strategy aimed at bringing the brand founded in 1999 by British designer Neil Barrett in the most prestigious streets of the key international cities in the world, the fashion label is gearing up to unveil its first store in London.
Opening its doors just in time for the holiday season, the shop will occupy 2,153 square feet on Conduit Street in the heart of the Mayfair neighborhood and feature a “revisited, cozier version of the store concept by Zaha Hadid Architects, which is already on show in our 30 monobrand stores around the world,” said Neil Barrett chief executive officer Carlo Barone Lumaga, during an interview at the company’s headquarters in Milan.
“This is an important step for the brand and it’s even more relevant because Neil is British and he is very connected with his roots,” said Barone Lumaga, adding that the store will enable the brand to fully showcase its collection in a key market for the company. “We will definitely maintain our tight relationships with the British department stores and in the course of next year we will

Hodinkee Makes Annual Collectors Summit Free to Public

As a celebration of its 10th anniversary, Benjamin Clymer, the founder of Hodinkee, decided to forego charging attendees $3,000 to attend its Collectors Summit, which will take place in New York from Dec. 7-9.
“It’s a way to give back to our community,” said Clymer. “We decided that this is something we believe in and we figured once every 10 years we could swing it.”
The summit, which will be held inside a loft on Grand Street, will feature talks that can hold up to 150 people along with exclusive product drops, including a collaboration with Swatch.
Hodinkee has grown from a one-man-operated watch site to a 35-person company that produces a magazine, two podcasts and operates online retail. In addition to its limited-edition watch collaborations, which usually generate around $3 million in sales per year, it sells around 30,000 leather goods a year. Going forward, the company is targeting lifestyle products and has plans to collaborate on stereo equipment and camera accessories.
Next up is a physical retail space in New York, which Clymer said will be a hub for the watch world that’s open to the public. Clymer said the goal is to create a space that’s not too masculine and feels

Macko Joins Camp Hero Accessories Brand

Michael Macko has become a partner in Camp Hero, an accessories brand that produces unisex hand-beaded items such as bracelets, cuffs and hatbands. Macko, whose career has included stints at Saks Fifth Avenue, Details and MR Magazine, is helping the brand relaunch to focus exclusively on e-commerce and seeks outside investors to help it grow.
Camp Hero was founded in 2014 by childhood friends Allie Carroll and Dan Schneier who built a business that had over 100 wholesale accounts including Orvis, J. Crew and Murray’s Toggery. However, the strategy will now change.

“As we enter 2019, there will be a real emphasis on e-commerce and developing new business verticals,” said Carroll.
Schneier added that it was Macko who first discovered the brand and added it to the MRket show in 2014. “He’s been a mentor from day one, and his incredible creative perspective and business acumen will help bring Camp Hero to the next level,” he said.
Macko’s first order of business will be to oversee a web site redesign and revamp of the product offering to increase the assortment and the frequency of its drops, which will include limited-edition items such as the reissue of the Dia de los Muertos belt as well

Former Apparel Execs Aim to Make Most Comfortable Men’s Denim

Ryan Mark and Danny Kurtzman are calling Alday, their new men’s denim line, the most comfortable jeans on the market.
Alday is the brainchild of Mark and Kurtzman, who were struggling to find stretch denim for men that wasn’t constricting.
The cofounders and designers, who met while working at 3Point Distribution, a California company that manages the design and production on a variety of brands including the men’s wear line Ezekiel, struggled to find stretch denim that felt good, so they decided to introduce their own brand on Kickstarter.
“We couldn’t find a pair of denim that was both comfortable and still looked great, so we decided to create the most comfortable denim ourselves,” Mark said. “Our goal is not to just build another clothing brand, but to create a product that people truly enjoy. We chose Kickstarter to build up a core audience that is passionate about the product and wants to be involved in its growth.”
Alday denim is made with open knit technology that features four-way stretch, deep pockets for cell phones and hardware that helps denim hold up to daily wear and tear. This results in a lightweight denim that works for a variety of body types.
The proposition has resonated on

Rémy Martin Partners With Don C

Rémy Martin is exploring product collaborations.
The liquor brand is introducing The Collector’s Series, which will feature capsule collections from various designers.
First up is the “Just Rémy” collection that is designed by Don Crawley, better known as Don C, who currently collaborates with Nike on sneakers and has his own line called Just Don.
“Rémy Martin has been a cultural icon for me and my community growing up on the South Side of Chicago, and I’m honored to partner with a brand that has been such a big part of my history,” said Crawley. “This project allowed me to effortlessly integrate my passion points and personal style to a collection that is unique to Rémy Martin. Throughout this creative process, our brands consistently remained inspirations to one another and this ‘Just Rémy’ collection is truly a one-of-a-kind showcase for both Rémy Martin and Just Don.”
The line, which will launch in Chicago later this month, will include the 1738 Sneaker Box, patterned with Just Don’s signature snakeskin detailing and featuring a bottle of premium Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal with branded “Just Rémy” sneaker laces.
“Rémy Martin is excited to present ‘The Collector’s Series’ and unite the world of luxury and lifestyle through collaboration,”

Huckberry Will Open First Shop in New York

Huckberry is jumping into the pop-up craze.
The San Francisco-based online men’s retailer will open its first retail location at 383 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village in November. The shop will feature “seven actionable adventures” that will highlight journeys ranging from a ​West Village Drinking Tour with Jack Kerouac to ​72 Hours in Iceland​. Each will offer a free itinerary that customers can take away from the store, insider perks at select stops such as discounts, VIP treatment, etc., and an edited selection of the season’s apparel, footwear, gear and gifts targeted to the specific adventure.
The pop-up will also offer a series of in-store events such as fireside chats and product demos. The first will be a question-and-answer with adventure photographer Chris Burkard on Nov. 6.
“When we started Huckberry in our apartments back in 2011, our mission was the same then as it is now: to inspire and equip adventures near and far,” Huckberry cofounder Andy Forch said. “Today, we’re excited to take our mission offline and serve our largest market with a fun and inspiring shopping experience we hope will push the boundaries of experiential retail.”
Cofounder Richard Greiner added: “Our vision is to build the most inspiring men’s retailer in the world through

Psycho Bunny to Open First U.S. Retail Store in Miami

Psycho Bunny is jumping into the retail fray in Miami.
The New York-based men’s brand with the slightly maniacal rabbit logo with its teeth hanging over a skull and crossbones, is opening its first store in the Aventura Mall this fall.
The brand operates two stores in Panama, two in Mexico and will open one in Bogotá, Colombia, by the end of the year. There are also 17 retail locations in Japan, including a flagship in Shibuya.
The concept is a bit unorthodox since the store will have two iterations: a 1,400-square-foot space will open as a pop-up at the beginning of November and stay in operation through the middle of January. At that point, it will be closed until the middle of March when it will reopen permanently as a 1,600-square-foot flagship.
“Because of the timing of when we signed the lease, we needed more time to [create a flagship],” said Robert Goldman, who operates the brand with Robert Godley. So to capitalize on the holiday traffic, a pop-up was created that will replicate a working artist’s studio. It is being designed by the Montreal-based architectural firm, Aedifica, which has worked with Adidas, Aldo and others.
Each side of the Psycho Bunny store will

Joe Bananas Makes Leap From Sydney to New York

Kim Bourke and Evan Sturrock are all in.
The co-owners of Joe Bananas, a 40-year-old Australian luxury men’s brand, have picked up stakes, moved halfway around the world to New York and opened their first store on Madison Avenue.
“When Americans dream big, they dream of making it in New York City,” Bourke said. “And when Australians dream big, they dream of making it in New York City.”
And so he and his business partner — and brother-in-law — took the leap of faith, leaving their home, and their two stores in Sydney, to open a 1,600-square-foot space at 943 Madison Avenue, between 74th and 75th streets, next door to The Met Breuer. The store had a soft opening last week and the grand opening is scheduled for Oct. 18.
A peek inside gives the first hint at what makes Joe Bananas different. Although the brand offers a wide range of products, it is best known for its colorful sport coats that are created from limited-edition, handcrafted silk textiles in patterns that are inspired by nature in Australia. It takes 250-300 days on average to weave one bolt of fabric that will in turn produce only six jackets that retail starting at $2,800 and go up

Ron Frasch Joins Aztech Mountain’s New Board of Directors

Aztech Mountain is gearing up for its next chapter and has tapped retail veteran Ron Frasch to serve on its newly created board.
The high-end, skiwear-skewed brand was founded in 2013 by Anthony Heifara Rutgers and David Roth who had a combined 20 years of experience in the apparel industry. Rutgers worked at LVMH’s watch and jewelry division and moved on to Marc Jacobs, while Roth has an MBA from New York University and is a trained forensic accountant whose grandfather started the eyeglass firm Avant-Garde, which was eventually sold to Luxottica, and whose father started Marchon, which was sold to VSP in 2008.
Since launching, Aztech Mountain has caught the attention of Barneys New York and other high-end retailers and is now carried in over 70 stores in 10 countries, according to Rutgers.
“A founder’s vision is always amazing, but we also know we have blinders on,” he said. “We haven’t had a lot of outside influence or anyone to ask questions and poke holes in what we’re doing. We think the brand can be much bigger, but we need to grow up a little bit and Ron will be able to tell us whether to accelerate or pull back. He’s the

Y/Project To Unveil Men’s Fall Collection at Pitti Uomo

MILAN – Y/Project will show its men’s fall 2019 collection in Florence as guest brand of the next edition of international men’s wear trade show Pitti Uomo, running Jan. 8-11.
Y/Project’s collections are currently designed by Glenn Martens, who succeeded the brand’s founder Yohan Serfaty as creative director in 2013. Serfaty passed away that year.
Under the creative direction of Martens, the Paris-based label won the ANDAM Grand Prize award in 2017 and consolidated its presence in the most relevant department stores in the world, including Dover Street Market, Barney’s, Selfridges, Lane Crawford and Jeffrey.
“Glenn Martens created for Y/Project a new aesthetic language, based on contradictions,” said Pitti Immagine communication and events director Lapo Cianchi. “Elegance is juxtaposed with eclectic and extravagant references, streetwear is enriched with historic details and exaggerated couture touches. The brand offers a highly conceptual design in line with the most advances projects in the market and Martens express a witty sense of humor and has a very personal fashion vision, based on freedom, experimentation and fun, without boundaries.”
Last June, Martens unveiled in Milan his capsule collection for the Diesel Red Tag label. Craig Green and Roberto Cavalli were the latest guests designer at Pitti Uomo last June.

EXCLUSIVE: L’Exception Adds Private Label Men’s Line

PARIS — L’Exception, the Paris-based online retailer dedicated to French labels, is launching a direct-to-consumer private label men’s line.
The idea, said founder Régis Pennel, is not to go into competition with the brands they sell but to present a complementary line of basics. The preppy line includes parkas, roll necks in merino wool, old-school cardigans and flannel shirts, with prices going from 35 euros for a T-shirt to 120 euros for a denim jacket.

Designing the line is Rémi de Laquintane, founder of Laquintane and cofounder of Parisian men’s wear label Éditions MR, both of which are carried by L’Exception. Lewis Lazar and Christopher Moore of French group the Oracle Sisters, which channels a Seventies vibe, are cited as the muses of the collection.
Launching on Oct. 11, the line will be sold exclusively on the retailer’s site and in a dedicated corner at its brick-and-mortar store in the Forum des Halles shopping center, with regular drops and a focus on European materials and production. The details of the supply chain will be shared on the site.
Pennel described the line as being very Parisian in style — “classic with a twist.”

Neil Kusnetz Joins Ovadia & Sons as President

The Ovadia twins have found their president.
Neal Kusnetz, the cofounder and former president of Robert Graham, who served most recently as president of men’s and private brands for Xcel Brands, has come on board to help Ovadia & Sons expand its reach.
As reported in July, twins Shimon and Ariel Ovadia were searching for someone to join the company as they expand beyond U.S. borders, relaunch their e-commerce site and move into other product categories.
And after meeting with Kusnetz, they knew they’d found the right fit.
“We feel good about this,” said Shimon. “Ariel and I started this business with pure passion to make product, but no business plan and no financial backing.”
The brothers founded Ovadia & Sons in 2010 and the business has grown substantially from a tailored clothing-skewed brand to a multi-category lifestyle label with some 100 retail accounts including Barneys New York, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Shimon said Kusnetz will oversee the day-to-day operations of the brand while he and his brother will “concentrate on product and brand image.
“Running the day-to-day takes up a lot of time and micro-managing,” he added, “and we were at a point where bringing in someone with Neal’s experience to run the operations

Title of Work Goes Brick-and-Mortar

Title of Work caught the retail bug when it was awarded one of the CFDA’s Retail Lab spots at Cadillac House for three months earlier this year. And now, the men’s accessories brand has opened its first official store on New York’s Lower East Side.
The 450-square-foot store is located at 57 Orchard Street and is on the ground level of the brand’s office and showroom space.
Jonathan Meizler, Title of Work founder, described the space as “transparent retail,” where customers will be able to watch the brand’s neckwear and jewelry being made within the space. The retail component is designed to be reminiscent of an art gallery with black floors that extend 3 feet up white walls, and a 15-foot wood plank in the center to showcase the objects. A two-way mirror at the back provides a trompe l’oeil effect to the atelier in the rear.
“Historically, the Lower East Side was the garment manufacturing capital in the 19th century, and many residents of the neighborhood, particularly on Orchard Street, worked in their homes constructing garments by hand,” Meizler said. “The opening of our flagship and atelier is a nod to the rich history of handmade craftsmanship of the neighborhood, and its melting pot of

Kiton Celebrates KNT Line

NEW YORK — Antonio De Matteis, the chief executive officer of Kiton, looked on like a proud father as his twin sons, Mariano and Walter De Matteis, explained their collection KNT, short for Kiton New Textures, which hit stores Thursday night.
“It’s all their vision,” said Antonio, wearing a suit at the Kiton flagship here while his sons wore the more relaxed styles from the KNT collection.
The line utilizes the same premium fabrics as Kiton, but the collection, which is the same price point, is much sportier. The brothers showcased jackets, joggers, shirts and sneakers. The textile patterns are inspired by urban architecture and the color palette is mostly black, white, gray and blue. For now, the pieces are showcased in a small space in front of the Kiton store. The twins said they are attempting to cater to the existing Kiton customer and bring in a new one.
“We love creating new paths, discovering and exploiting opportunities where others only see obstacles,” said Mariano. Walter added: “We are honest to ourselves, respectful of our own historical DNA and of our own spirit without compromise.”

The Tie Bar Partners With Vitale Barberis

The Tie Bar wanted to test out a more premium product, so it partnered with Vitale Barberis, the Italian mill, on a line of seven ties and two bowties constructed with fabrics sourced from the mill.
“The Tie Bar has always taken pride in bringing our customer a premium quality product at an unbeatable value,” says Allyson Lewis, chief executive officer of The Tie Bar. “Our customer has been asking for a higher-end offering for years, but it was important for us to find the right partner to maximize the value for our customer.”
The line features premium Italian wool fabrics that retail for $35. The Tie Bar’s typical pricing for ties is $19. It includes windowpane patterns coming in trending colors for fall. The line was meant to complement The Tie Bar’s collection of dress shirts and pants. It’s available at The Tie Bar’s six permanent stores and its e-commerce site.
The Tie Bar has also expanded its distribution strategy and signed a deal with Destination Hotels. Its products — ties, bow ties, pocket squares, belts and socks — will be available to purchase at six Destination Hotels in the U.S. The capsule includes a custom tie and bow tie designed exclusively

New Era Doubles Down on Premium EK Collection

New Era noticed a gap in the market for premium hats that were at a contemporary price point, so they launched the EK Collection a few seasons ago, with the E and the K standing for New Era’s founder Ehrhardt Koch.
“Our brand is closely associated with the baseball cap, but the first hat he designed was a Gatsby hat,” said Billy Loncar, senior design manager for New Era Cap. “This line is paying homage to our heritage through materials, hardware and little finishing details.”
According to Loncar, each season the vintage aesthetic remains the same, but they infuse premium materials, new colors and different fabrications into the line. The line is broken down into Luxe, Vintage and Classic and includes a waffle-knit beanie, a shearling and velvet baseball cap, a velvet skully, a wool fedora and a herringbone driver’s cap. The line retails from $60 to $150. The collection is distributed on New Era’s e-commerce site along with Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Fred Segal, Barneys New York and Selfridges.
“I think one of the really great things about the EK line is the clean aesthetic and subtle details that go into the designs that buyers appreciate,” said Loncar. “The styles are wearable

How Advisory Board Crystals Merges Wellness With Streetwear

Outside of making somewhat interesting, limited-edition product, the loose formula for breaking through and succeeding in streetwear today goes as follows: 1. Be Supreme; 2. Be Supreme alumni; 3. Be associated with Kanye West or 4. Seed clothes to influencers who are probably also connected with West.
Neither Heather Haber nor Remington Guest, the couple behind Advisory Board Crystals, which is self-funded, have worked for Supreme, and while they idolize him and appreciate his candor, they don’t know Kanye West. They also don’t seed clothes to anyone, including Justin Bieber, who purchased their pants from Patron of the New and wore them earlier this month. And although they live in Los Angeles, which has turned into a breeding ground for streetwear brands that cross over into luxury territory, they orbit in their own very private world that’s consumed by each other and building Abc., shorthand for Advisory Board Crystals.
“We don’t know anyone,” said Guest. “I know Scott Sternberg from Band of Outsiders, but that’s just a different thing.”
Despite being disconnected from the streetwear scene, over the course of two years Abc. has quickly become a key player in it. The couple has worked with retailers including Grailed, Colette, Bergdorf Goodman, Union
