Paris Saint-Germain, Manish Arora Collaborate on Capsule

KICKING AROUND COLORS: Manish Arora has teamed up with French soccer team Paris Saint-Germain for a capsule collection that will be shown at the designer’s Thursday runway show.
Arora said he was inspired by France’s “iconic” FIFA World Cup victory this year, and splashed colorful portraits of soccer stars Kylian Mbappé and Neymar onto the clothing.
“For me, creativity has no boundaries, and I really challenged myself to explore a new field,” the designer said.
The collaboration comes as the club’s owners, Qatari Sports Investments, seek to bolster the Paris Saint-Germain’s international appeal, recently opening offices in Doha and Singapore.
The ready-to-wear collection will be sold in February 2019 in China and India.

At his fall runway show in Paris, Arora placed China’s famous emoji character Tuzki in the front row, where he tipped his enormous bobble head and tapped his mini arms to the music as models streamed past.
The Indian designer, known for his bright rainbow palette, has close ties to Paris, which he also referred to when evoking the collaboration.
“From my second residence to my source of inspiration, Paris has always held a special place in my heart, both personally and professionally,” he said.
The Eiffel Tower also featured among

Cindy Crawford and Charlotte Gainsbourg Wowed by Eiffel Tower Set

TOWER POWER: The timing was perfect: the Eiffel Tower started its hourly sparkling act just as the last guests were finding their seats for the Saint Laurent show.
While actress Catherine Deneuve paused to take in the view before entering the venue, Carla Bruni praised the row of frosted palm trees alongside a long, shallow pool. “I think the décor is absolutely amazing,” she said. “I love the white palm trees, and of course the Tour Eiffel is like heaven!”
Anne Hidalgo, who the previous evening had welcomed the fashion crowd to the City Hall, said it was her first fashion show of the season, and planned to try to see others as well. “It’s always magnificent here, and I also think having it under the open sky means that in addition to all the guests from the fashion world there are also tourists and Parisians, and bystanders as well.”
Tourist buses slowed down on the way to the Pont d’Iéna to take in the scene, while hundreds of bystanders gathered round the fountains right up to the Place du Trocadéro to watch the show from a distance.
According to Cindy Crawford, “you can’t go wrong with the Eiffel Tower.”
Some of the guests were already

Uniqlo Opens Knitwear Show With Tales of Horizontal Knitting Machines

NEAT KNITS: Don’t take your sweater for granted.
This felt like the underlying message relayed by Fast Retailing Co. Ltd. executives speaking before a crowded room of journalists gathered for a Uniqlo exhibit about knitwear in Paris. People squeezed into the entrance of the show, a wide room covered with dangling wheels of colored wool, the hues arranged like a giant, three-dimensional rainbow.
Held at the Jeu de Paume museum in Paris, the show runs from Wednesday through Saturday. It’s a sort of ephemeral pop-up experience from the Japanese label, which touts the exhibit as its first, as it joins the growing ranks of brands aiming to pull in new consumers by telling people how their stuff is made.
“The Art and Science of LifeWear” features a knitting machine in action, building a sweater dress before the public. It then takes visitors through a life of a sweater through photos, showing inspection stages and the factory hanger system, finishing with the final residue removal, done by hand. Another room is covered with rows of outfits, some outfitted with knit hats, scarves and gloves.
Closing the exhibit is a pop-up shop, complete with a cash register, featuring collaborations with Andrea Crews—airport themed, with sweaters stamped “Paris”

Something Navy Crashes Site, Beats Expectations at Nordstrom

Arielle Charnas, the influencer behind the popular fashion blog and social channels Something Navy, had a “wildly successful” launch of her collection exclusively at Nordstrom on Monday, according to a Nordstrom spokeswoman. The brand was so popular it crashed the site in the first hour, which was quickly remedied.
Many customers complained online that they weren’t able to buy what they put in their shopping bag since the site crashed, and once it was back online Nordstrom had sold out of the items.
The introduction followed the successful launch of the Treasure & Bond x Something Navy capsule collection last fall. That capsule was estimated to have racked up sales of about $1 million in less than 24 hours, as reported.
On Monday, Something Navy sales beat expectations, according to the spokeswoman. Among the best sellers were a v-neck slouchy pullover, which was available in five colors for $79; the double-breasted topper coat in check pattern for $139, and the teddy coat, available in two colors, blue and tan, for $149. The tan sold out Monday and the blue is still available in large and XXL.

The blue teddy coat is still available in a few sizes.

Charnas will make an appearance at Nordstrom’s Yorkdale

Alexis Mabille Celebrates First Restaurant, Froufrou

PARIS — A line of guests formed in front of the Edouard VII in the 9th arrondissement, but they were there for something other than the theater’s program. Designer Alexis Mabille was officially unveiling Froufrou, the theater’s new restaurant and bar. Formerly Café Guitry, Froufrou was decorated by Mabille in lavish Belle Epoque style.
The designer had spent the day presenting his spring collection, but showed no signs of fatigue as he greeted guests in the foyer. “It had to come to life,” said the designer, who admitted to spending the summer working on the project.
Chef Juan Arbelaez created the menu, a selection of dishes to be devoured with the same excess and enthusiasm as a stage actor. “At Froufrou, you will eat and drink a bit too much, laugh too loudly, make a lot of noise and enjoy a moment you’ll never forget,” said the Franco-Colombian chef.
Guests queued for a piece of his braised lamb shank, served with a generous dollop of smooth mashed potato. Waiters passed around toasted slices of baguette topped with bone marrow and white truffle, while pescatarians drifted to bowls of lemony pollack ceviche.
Chef Marc Veyrat, owner of the Michelin-starred La Maison des Bois in Manigod,

Nasty Gal Latest Brand to Dabble in Extended Sizing

Count Nasty Gal in as the latest company looking to broaden its customer base by offering more sizes.
The e-tailer said Tuesday it released a capsule collection with pieces ranging from sizes 0 to 18. The company’s product offering typically goes up to size 10 or a large.
The capsule totals more than 25 stockkeeping units dubbed transitional wear into fall with items such as graphic T-shirts, dresses, blouses and jackets retailing from $12 to $90. Nasty Gal tapped Alessandra Garcia Lorido to be the face of the capsule, which appears to be the start of a broader aim by the company to be more size inclusive.
Nasty Gal is part of Manchester-based boohoo group plc and was acquired by the company out of bankruptcy in February 2017. It’s the smallest brand within the boohoo group portfolio with revenue of 24.4 million pounds reported for the company’s fiscal year ended in February. The results, boohoo group said in its annual report, exceeded expectations as Nasty Gal continues to grow its business outside of the core U.S. under its new parent.
Nasty Gal is the latest looking to tap the plus-size market, acknowledging its somewhat tardy venture into the space saying in Tuesday’s announcement “We’re

British Fashion Council Strengthens Commercial Ties to China, With Help From David Beckham

OVERSEAS HAUL: The British Fashion Council is fast at building commercial bridges with China: After cooperating with JD.com and VIP.com during London Fashion Week earlier this month, the organization announced that 500,000 pounds worth of deals were made between the BFC and JD.com, one of China’s largest online retailers, and Ruyi International Group, the Chinese textiles and fashion company.
The money from the Chinese e-commerce platforms will go toward the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, Britain’s Department of International Trade and the re-instatement of the BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund. The fund will support an emerging men’s wear designer with a monetary prize of 150,000 pounds and a yearlong mentoring program.
“We are delighted to reinstate the BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund thanks to JD.Com Inc. and Ruyi who have committed to two years of support for our brilliant emerging men’s wear designers,” said Dylan Jones, BFC men’s wear chair and editor of British GQ.
While these new deals were struck, David Beckham simultaneously launched the BFC’s China Partnerships Strategy in Shanghai as one of his first duties as the BFC’s new ambassadorial president. The strategy focuses on helping British designers enter into the Chinese market.
The BFC is driving its Chinese partnerships forward under both the organization’s China

Faye Dunaway Talks Being a Style Icon at Gucci Show

PICK AND MIX: Alessandro Michele assembled an eclectic cast of divas and misfits for his one-off Gucci show in Paris at the legendary theater Le Palace, home to France’s equivalent of Studio 54 in the late Seventies.
Leading the Hollywood contingent was Faye Dunaway, who stars in ads for the Italian brand’s Sylvie bag. The Oscar-winning actress hugged a very pregnant Soko, who plays her daughter in the campaign, before taking her seat in the stalls. Though she has influenced many designers, the 77-year-old was honored that Michele picked her.
“I couldn’t believe that he asked me to do it,” she said. “In fashion, he is the man to meet right now. I mean, the kids love him, they keep coming in, and his line and his garments are really wonderful, so I’m very happy with it and the photographs were great.”
The star of classic films like “Bonnie and Clyde” said she was flattered to be considered a style icon.
“I feel wonderful about it, I really do. You work very hard every step of the way with the designers, you know, from [‘Bonnie and Clyde’ costume designer] Theadora Van Runkle to ‘Thomas Crown,’ all of the films I’ve done, and it’s very

FASHION ROYALTY: It’s not just Stateside that the celebrations for Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary are in full swing this year. On Dec. 4, The French-American Foundation will host a gala dinner in his honor — at the Château de Versailles, no less. Lauren will be celebrated for his “unparalleled impact on the fashion world for 50 years,” states the invitation to the event, hosted under the patronage of French President Emmanuel Macron.
Lauren held his anniversary fashion show and dinner in Central Park during New York Fashion Week earlier this month.

Acne Studios Taps Cindy Crawford for Fall Campaign

ICON TO ICON: Acne Studios is no stranger to making creative leaps: having featured Juliette Lewis in its spring campaign, the Swedish brand has tapped Cindy Crawford to star in its fall ads.
The model teamed with a fellow American, photographer Sam Abell, to shoot the images in front of the Cadillac Ranch installation in Amarillo, Tx., created in 1974 by the art group Ant Farm. Abell is best known for his Marlboro Man images in the Seventies, which have been famously re-appropriated by Richard Prince.
Crawford posted the first two images of the campaign on her Instagram account on Tuesday. Acne Studios creative director Jonny Johansson said he wanted to explore fashion’s obsession with icons.

“I wanted to play with living iconography, so we commissioned Sam Abell to photograph Cindy Crawford at the Cadillac Ranch. It is the iconography of Cindy, America, and also Acne Studios, with Cindy wearing new versions of the first ever jeans we designed,” he said in a statement.
The 1996 and 1997 jeans models have been reintroduced as part of the fall collection of the brand’s denim line, known as Blå Konst. The 1997 is a five-pocket rigid jean with high rise and regular

Hedi Slimane Gives First Interview At Celine

PARIS – Hedi Slimane has given his first interview since his nomination at Celine to French daily newspaper Le Figaro. The famously discreet designer spoke to journalist Laurence Benaïm in Tuesday’s issue of the newspaper.
The interview comes days before his debut collection at Celine, which will be unveiled on Sept. 28 during Paris Fashion Week.
“I am delighted to come back to a French house, a tradition, professions, ateliers,” said Slimane. “Paris is the best at ‘handmade,’ which is incredibly chic. Beyond the virtuosity of the ateliers, this savoir-faire is due to a state of mind, a way of working, the immediate understanding of a model, a particular feeling that can only be found in Paris.”
He explains that an additional atelier has been added to the 17th century mansion that houses Celine’s headquarters, the Hôtel Colbert de Torcy in the 2nd arrondissment, which will be dedicated to the creation of Celine’s first men’s wear line.
Upon arriving at Celine, Slimane chose to rebrand the maison by taking the French accent off the house’s name.
“It’s in no way about marking my territory, quite the contrary,” said the designer, adding that it was his way of “putting the church back at the center of the

Echo Brand Celebrates 95 Years of Business With Event at Bloomingdale’s

“We now have three generations of family members working side by side every day from 29 years old to almost 90,” said Steven Roberts, chief executive officer and chief innovation officer of Echo Design Group. “I think we have as much passion for the business today as we have ever had.”
This year, the family-owned accessories and home design company celebrates 95 years of business, and to commemorate the milestone on Thursday, the brand is hosting a “National Scarf Day” event with Bloomingdale’s and style influencer Natalie Lim Suarez of @NatalieOffDuty.
“Echo’s headquarters have been in Midtown [New York] for our entire 95 years. How fitting to be able to celebrate our 95th with our friends and partners of so many years at Bloomingdale’s. Their customers have been supporting and appreciating Echo products for many years,” Roberts said.
Known for scarves, which continue to be a staple, Echo also makes puffy nylon jackets, rainwear, hats, wraps and leather gloves. There is a comprehensive home line that extends to duvets and pillow shams, table linens, paper napkins, ceramic soap dispensers and shower curtains.

Shailene Woodley and Ben Volavola’s Dior Show Date

LET’S DANCE: “It’s so hard to see in here, it’s so dark,” said Blake Lively, blindly making her way into the Dior show on Monday at the Paris Longchamp hippodrome. The lights had been shut off in the indoor venue, with rows of beams creating pools of light across the floor. Peering across the space, an excited Lively said it was her first Dior show in around a decade, but the actress, who plays a bigwig fashion p.r. in her latest film, “A Simple Favor,” looked at home in her surroundings. Asked if she was feeling the part, she replied: “Oh, no, no, no, I would not like to do that. They do get a lot of free stuff, though, so that part sounds fun.”
A few rows down, Shailene Woodley was frantically texting her partner, Fijian rugby player Ben Volavola, to make sure he made it to the show on time. The actress said she recently moved to Paris to be with Volavola, who plays for French club Union Bordeaux Bègles. “I’m constantly taking notes on what these beautiful Parisians are wearing,” she said of her new life in the fashion capital.

Emily Ratajkowski and Haim Attend Jacquemus Spring 2019 Show

Despite the show’s theme being “La Riviera,” the weather wasn’t quite Côte d’Azur at the Italian Embassy in the 7th arrondissement, where the Jacquemus spring 2019 show was soon to take place.
“I’m freezing,” said Inès de la Fressange, hugging her black corduroy jacket around her shoulders as she entered the courtyard.
She hopped over to her friend and fellow Parisienne Caroline de Maigret, marveling at her choice of a plunging black silk jumpsuit in this chilly weather. Both women have become ambassadors of Parisian style, having each written a book about the art of the true Parisienne.
De Maigret, who featured in Simon Porte Jacquemus’ second collection six years ago, said it was the designer’s communicative energy that led her to collaborate with the brand. “He had really great ideas. I was hooked from the very beginning,” she said. “Years later, he still has the same incredible energy.”
Out in the back garden, Emily Ratajkowski was sipping a glass of Champagne and also praising the 28-year-old designer’s sunny nature. “I met Simon a year ago at his last spring collection, and I now have a friendship with him.

Dover Street Market Spotlights Walter van Beirendonck Alumnus Joost Jansen

COZY KNITS: Dover Street Market is gearing up for fall and has collaborated with designer Joost Jansen on an installation, which launched Friday, celebrating Jansen’s love of knitwear.
Jansen, who has worked with the likes of Walter van Beirendonck and Henrik Vibskov, launched his own brand Survival of the Fashionest in 2017. The name pokes fun at the industry yet it also reflects the core values of his brand, “In a way it stands for me fighting to do something different, I want to use good materials, traditional techniques and keep craftsmanship alive,” Jansen said.
For his debut collection, Jansen worked alongside 250 grandmothers in Bulgaria to incorporate hand-knitting techniques with a modern twist. “I use a lot of color and for me it’s important to show all the details of the craftsmanship and bring awareness to it,” he said.
The installation demonstrates these techniques and Jansen’s knitwear, which takes up to three weeks to make, is pressed between two plastic sheets. These sheets are then suspended from hanging bars encouraging customers to rotate the display to view the knitwear from all angles.
“Pictures of clothes are mostly taken from the front, so we came up with this idea of having it turn so

Zanellato Stages Exhibition

CINEMA AND BAGS: Zanellato paid homage to Italian movies staging an exhibition during Milan Fashion Week called “Divine — Bags and Faces in the Italian Cinema.” A selection of charming paparazzi photos of actresses ranging from Anita Ekberg, Monica Vitti and Sophia Loren to Claudia Cardinale, Virna Lisi, Ursula Andress and Gina Lollobrigida carrying their favorite handbags were displayed alongside the 15 bags they inspired.
“There is nothing dusty about these photos,” said creative director and chief executive officer Franco Zanellato. “These actresses are as modern now as they were then. I am so happy to be able to show these images that tell the story of our culture from the Sixties.”
Zanellato designed bags that included the white Nina in python with a powdery effect and shearling, the Zsa Zsa tote in pony hair or the Postina with special silk thread embroideries. “These are special editions and as each woman has secrets, every bag has a hidden pocket with a slide of the photo that inspired the bag,” Zanellato said.
The exhibition was staged in collaboration with the Fondazione Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia-Sede Lombardia.

Joseph Names New Creative Director, Chief Executive Officer

LONDON — Joseph has named Susana Clayton its new creative director, following Louise Trotter’s exit last July.
Clayton, a Givenchy and Chloé alumnus, will work across men’s and women’s wear; her first collection being for fall 2019.
The brand has simultaneously appointed a new chief executive officer, Barbara Campos, who joins Joseph from Marni, where she was global wholesale director.
“I look forward to embracing the brand’s origins and to realign it with Joseph Ettedgui’s vision, creating a balance between fashion and a timeless wardrobe of luxury essentials,” Clayton said of her appointment.
Her design career spans 20 years. Most recently she was design director of women’s wear at Givenchy, but she also has worked for the likes of Gap and Rag & Bone.
Campos, who will join the company on Nov. 1, said Clayton’s wide-ranging design experience is one of her greatest assets.
“[Susana] has an impressive background in luxury fashion teamed with an excellent commercial understanding of the business,” Campos added.
Campos succeeds the brand’s current ceo Hirosuke Takagi, who is moving to the newly created position of chairman.
Clayton’s hire continues the trend of brands tapping behind-the-scenes design directors to take over the creative reins at leading houses.

Josep Font Leaves Delpozo

Josep Font is stepping down as creative director of Spanish luxury brand Delpozo. He was hired to relaunch the brand six years ago by Grupo Perfumes y Diseño, which has held the house’s perfume license since 1992 and acquired the label in full in 2011. A successor will be named at a later date.
Prior to joining Delpozo, Font had his own label, which he showed during Madrid, Barcelona, Tokyo and Paris fashion weeks. He revived Delpozo, originally launched in 1974 by Spanish couturier Jesus del Pozo, with a flare for dramatic, colorful and eccentric collections that often employed couture techniques and silhouettes. Though based in Spain, the brand held its fashion show during New York Fashion Week before switching to London for the last two seasons.
“Josep has been a key figure for the relaunch of Delpozo,” said the company’s president Pedro Trolez, who owns Grupo Perfumes y Diseño, in a statement. “Over the past six years, he has helped rejuvenate and continue the legacy of Jesus.”
“I am very proud of what we have achieved together in the short space of six years,” said Font. “ I want to thank my talented team who has been committed since the beginning of this
