Cabi, The Giving Keys Partner to Do Good

Women’s social selling retailer Cabi has found a new way to support its Heart of Cabi Foundation to help others.
Cabi’s foundation has existed since 2005, but this year the retailer partnered with inspirational jewelry brand The Giving Keys to collaborate on a design for Cabi’s fall collection.
Called the Tribute Necklace, it features a golden key inscribed with the word “Better” and a silver key inscribed with the word “Together.” The keys are meant to symbolize the power of community and in-person experiences that unite women. Each key sits on its own chain, and the two can be worn together or separately.
The necklace will be shown on the retailer’s site beginning on Saturday, but won’t be available for purchase until Aug. 1. Buyers can reach out to their Cabi stylist to purchase the $89 necklace. A portion from each sale will go to Cabi’s foundation so it can be invested in women’s causes around the globe.
So far, the foundation has distributed $50 million in apparel to women in communities affected by natural disasters, and has funded 12,800 small business loans to women across 62 developing countries to enable them to work their way out of poverty.

Cyndi Lauper Wears Libertine on Summer 2018 Tour

TRUE COLORS: If the graphic jackets and pantsuits that Cyndi Lauper has been sporting on her summer tour with Rod Stewart look familiar, it’s because they’re all current Libertine designs. The pop store bought her own jackets at Libertine’s shop-in-shop at Fred Segal’s Sunset Boulevard flagship, then visited designer Johnson Hartig’s Hollywood atelier for more.
“She was shopping at Fred Segal and fell in love with our shop-in-shop there. Then she contacted us directly and came into the studio,” said Hartig. In the studio, Lauper chose more pieces to wear on tour. “It was all current stock, we didn’t have to create any pieces because we had them all here,” Hartig said.

For her opening act, Lauper sports a pantsuit with all-over holographic sequins. “Don’t you love what happens when I rub myself? The colors change,” she said at the tour’s kick-off June 25 at the Hollywood Bowl. She then climbed onto a speaker in the crowd, teetering in sequined platform boots, to sing “Money Changes Everything.”
For her Eighties anthem “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” Lauper changed into another pantsuit, covered in a patchwork of mixed prints.
She’s billed as

Trunk Club and CB2 Partner Up

Trunk Club and CB2 have discovered some synergies.
The personal styling service and the homewares company are both in the business of improving aesthetics, so they’ve partnered on a seasonal, multiplatform marketing campaign that will feature CB2 and Trunk Club trends throughout the year.
“We are excited to explore a deeper conversation about style and how it influences your everyday life,” said Linda Bartman, chief operating officer at Trunk Club. “Our service inspires and empowers our customers to feel confident in their clothing, and this research shows the connection between what we wear every day and how we style our home.”
At the Trunk Club Chicago Clubhouse, CB2 has built a permanent installation and the fitting room and lounge areas will be switched out each season to reflect home and fashion trends. This campaign will also include a Trunk Club and CB2 sponsored sweepstakes featuring a $500 gift card to each brand.
Leading up to this campaign launch, the brands conducted a survey analyzing how much personal style dictates interior home design. Out of a survey of 2,000 consumers, nearly 40 percent said their overall happiness would increase if their wardrobe and home’s interior were aligned.
Beyond the survey, the brands will launch a seasonal

NYC Council Members Make Unannounced Visit to H&M Offices on Union Contract Negotiations

SPECIAL DELIVERY: Three New York City Council members hand-delivered a letter to H&M’s New York office, demanding the company return to the negotiating table for the betterment of 1,500 unionized H&M employees.
While about 30 members and supporters of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union waited outside of the Fifth Avenue headquarters, the elected officials — Brad Lander, Keith Powers and Ritchie Torres — visited the 11th floor. Addressed to Karl-Johann Persson, chief executive officer of the H&M Group, the letter was signed by 28 New York City Council members, including Speaker Corey Johnson. Guaranteeing minimum part-time hours, longevity increases, fair scheduling and ending clopenings — the practice of having an employee close a store at night and open the same location the following morning — are among the requests workers are seeking in a new contract.
After briefing supporters about how the delivery played out, Lander said, “It seemed like they weren’t expecting us so it took a little while to get permission. We had hoped to see Laura Hammond, who is the head of U.S. h.r. They said she was not there. We wondered if she might have been one of the mannequins, standing very still on the side.

Rag & Bone Supports Project CAT With Limited-Edition T-shirt

Rag & Bone has once again partnered with Discovery to support Project CAT, an initiative designed to help preserve and protect tigers in the wild.
The men’s and women’s sportswear company has designed a limited-edition unisex T-shirt in collaboration with graphic artist Boy Kong, which is being sold on rag-bone.com for $95 and will be available in select Rag & Bone stores.
Kong, a native of Orlando, Fla., is a self-taught painter, illustrator, muralist and collage artist. He was inspired by a mixture of Ukiyo-e, Surrealism, graffiti art and animal folklore in designing the T-shirt. He recently contributed a custom 3-D art installation displayed in Rag & Bone’s Design District store in Miami.
There are fewer than 4,000 tigers left in the wild due to habitat loss and illegal poaching. Project CAT’s aim is to improve resources for security measures in the wild, increase monitoring of tiger populations, maintain land corridors to improve connectivity for wildlife movement, and implement measures to reduce wildlife conflict.
Followers of Rag & Bone are encouraged to take a selfie wearing the T-shirt and use the hashtag #projectcat when posting to their social media in the lead up to Global Tiger Day on July 29.

Watch brand Leonard & Church on Canine Fashion

DOGS ON THE MIND: Former “Teen Wolf” star Arden Cho, who cofounded watch brand start-up Leonard & Church, has a thing about collars and leashes. That’s due to her being dog mom to four-year-old Chewy, a Pekingese-Shih Tzu mix.
In addition to being a spoiled canine who eats home-cooked meals, Chewy has access to a leather line for canines from Cho’s company. Collars are $65 and leashes $75. News of the line was sent to all Leonard & Church e-mail subscribers on Thursday. According to Cho in the e-mail, the company spent more than a year designing and creating the line, and partnered with an experienced manufacturer who creates luxury leather accessories for dogs and humans, including $1,000 handbags.
“We wanted to create beautiful, high-quality accessories at a fair price for dog lovers around the world. A focus on the details. Honestly priced. Accessible luxury. It’s why we started Leonard & Church in the first place,” Cho wrote.
The watch start-up, with cofounders Jeffrey Leung and Christopher Chon, was the highest-funded watch campaign in Kickstarter history back in October 2015, raising backers from 60-plus countries. According to Chon, the company’s watches are priced between $95 and $145, and are comparable in quality to brands

Caeleb Dressel Signs First Sponsorship Deal as Professional Swimmer With Speedo

TAKE YOUR MARK: Speedo was first in line to ink recently turned professional swimmer Caeleb Dressel, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, as the newest member of Team Speedo USA.
The swimwear specialist, a division of PVH Corp., has a history with leading swimmers as the sport’s most decorated brand — more Olympic medals have been won by competitors wearing Speedo swimsuits than all other swimwear brands combined. Dressel can hold his own in terms of accolades. In addition to two Olympic gold medals, he was the first swimmer to break the 40-second mark in the 100-yard freestyle and the first to go less than 18 seconds in the 50-yard freestyle.
As a senior on the University of Florida’s men’s swimming and diving team, Dressel was named the 2018-19 SEC Male Athlete of the Year. He holds seven American long and short-course records. Speedo USA president John Graham said Caeleb is a star, plain and simple. “Our goal with Team Speedo is to always build a complete, well-rounded roster of world-class swimmers who will embody Speedo in and out of the pool and connect with our fans across the country.”
With Team Speedo, Dressel joins the ranks of Nathan Adrian, Missy Franklin, Ryan Murphy,

CPxArt Takes Fine Art Approach to Line

MUSEUM QUALITY: One-of-a-kind art is where CPxArt has gained a following for its version of high-end streetwear.
The line, started by German designers Donaldson Sackey and Sainey Sidibeh, is based in Paris, where the streetwear scene best reflects the brand’s ethos, Sackey said.
The two-and-a-half-year-old unisex line is still small, sold in roughly 15 boutiques in addition to the company’s web store.
Sackey and Sidibeh have in the past designed a collection for Wu Wear, which recently relaunched, and the two continue to do design work for the Wu-Tang Clan-affiliated brand. CPxArt also has an upcoming collaboration with Alpha Industries in Europe that will initially include jackets.
“We are fans of Eighties punk and we’re going into the design trying to bring back the punk vibe,” Sackey said of the work for Alpha Industries.
The custom approach to each piece is what CPxArt hopes will continue to set it apart from the raft of other streetwear brands looking to ride the segment’s continued rising tide. The brand’s bomber jackets are painted by hand and T-shirts bear what Sackey called “deep messages to bring people into reflection and to think about life.”
There have also been more recent collaborations with rapper JP The Wavy and actress Nina

Vogue for Milano Marks 10th Anniversary

MILAN — Milan’s leg of international Vogue Fashion’s Night Out event is marking its 10th anniversary.
After revamping its format last year under the new Vogue for Milano moniker, the second edition under the supervision of Emanuele Farneti, editor in chief of Italian Vogue, will further strengthen its bond with the city. The event is scheduled for Sept. 13, ahead of the city’s fashion week kicking off on Sept. 18.
“Let’s be honest, Milan Fashion Week should restate its centrality among other [fashion] capitals and it’s important to probe the atmosphere one week before [fashion week kicks off],” said Farneti during a press conference held at the Palazzo Morando venue on Thursday.
“September will be packed with events and activities under the Milano XL [project]. The Vogue for Milano night is an auspicious anticipation of what to come in the rest of the month,” echoed Cristina Tajani, Milan’s fashion and design city councilor.
Along with late-night store openings and brands offering limited-edition items to be sold exclusively during that night, the number of events promoted by Vogue Italia is aimed at spotlighting fashion in a broader, cultural sense.
To this end, brands in the Golden Triangle luxury shopping district will open their flagships offering a

Is a Proxy Fight Next for Randa?

AT WHAT COST: Perry Ellis International’s Special Committee on Wednesday reiterated its intention to proceed with George Feldenkreis’ $437 million offer to take the company private, a transaction that was inked on June 16. That dashed the wishes of Randa Accessories, which had hoped for a second, third and fourth chance to at least engage in talks over its nonbinding $444 million offer.
Randa has maintained that it intends to continue pursuing a purchase of Perry Ellis, but it doesn’t have many options left. According to the Special Committee on Wednesday, regulatory authorities already granted early termination of the 30-day waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, clearing the way for the filing of the preliminary proxy last week. All that’s left is determining the date for the special shareholders’ meeting so investors can vote yay or nay on the planned deal.
Randa could elect to do a proxy fight, but at what cost? A banker not connected to the Perry Ellis-Randa battle — he’s requested anonymity because of his work with corporate clients in connection with proxy fights from activist investors — said, “A proxy fight is very expensive, and I’m not sure what it achieves here.

Primark Seals Deal With Unicef to Help Cambodian Children

CHILDREN’S HOUR: Primark and Unicef have inked a three-year partnership aimed at contributing to the latter’s work in education and emergency response for vulnerable children.
Primark confirmed it has committed $4.5 million to fund an education program enabling vulnerable children to attend and remain in school in Cambodia.
Planned activities include targeted support for children from minority language groups, girls, and children with disabilities; investment in school sanitation facilities; and training for teachers in positive discipline approaches.
Primark has committed a further $1.5 million to Unicef’s worldwide emergency response operations. In 2017, the aid organization responded to 337 humanitarian situations in 102 countries. In most humanitarian crises, children are most at risk, with women and children comprising 60 to 80 percent of the affected population.
“Unicef is the world’s largest humanitarian organization for children with operations in more than 190 countries,” said Unicef Ireland’s executive director, Peter Power.
He said the organization relies significantly on the private sector “to help fund our life-saving and life-changing operations for children and we are pleased to welcome Primark’s generous contribution to this work.”
Primark’s chief executive officer, Paul Marchant, said, “As an international brand we are excited to be collaborating with a global organization which shares our commitment to making

Yoox Net-a-porter, Bloomsbury Team on Fashion Video Archive Project

THE ARCHIVE COMES ALIVE: Yoox Net-a-porter is investing in education and the younger generations through a partnership with Bloomsbury Publishing that will make rare fashion-show footage available to the educational market.
YNAP has worked with Bloomsbury to digitize its runway archive collection between 1979 and 2003, before shows were automatically digitized. The result is more than 3,000 videos and hundreds of hours of footage that offer a window into fashion history and a new way for students to examine the evolution of the catwalk over the years, key collections and individual designers’ work.
The footage is supported by scholarly articles and video descriptions to make the archive easily discoverable. All accompanying content has been curated by Dr. Valerie Steele, fashion historian and director of the museum at Fashion Institute of Technology.
“We have always known the value of the archive to the educational community. It provides a great link to the future,” said Tara Tierney, YNAP’s digital collections curator.
Kathryn Earle, managing director at Bloomsbury Digital Resources, said the footage highlights the impact of some of the most influential designers of the period including the Antwerp Six, Rei Kawakubo and Hussein Chalayan.

Chanel Sponsors Restoration of Sixties Film Featuring Costumes by Gabrielle Chanel

COSTUME PARTY: Chanel has sponsored the restoration of Alain Resnais’ 1961 masterpiece, “Last Year at Marienbad,” starring Delphine Seyrig in a series of dresses designed by Coco Chanel.
Poignantly, Studio Canal’s newly restored digitized version of the film will premiere as part of the classic film section at the Venice Film Festival where the original film was awarded a Golden Lion close to 60 years ago.

“Last year at Marienbad,” 1961, Alain Resnais.

The process included cleaning up flaws and readjusting the color grading to highlight the photography and lighting developed by Sacha Vierny and Alain Resnais using a Dyaliscope lens. The soundtrack was also restored using the original 35mm mix.
Accessorized by pearls, the film’s costumes were based on “a wardrobe tethered to everyday life but that evoked the allure of 1920s cinema stars, as well as a modern and timeless elegance,” according to Chanel.

Dennis Basso Features Mary J. Blige in Ads, Provides Fur for J.Lo’s ‘Dinero’ Music Video

HE’S GOT TALENT: Dennis Basso has reason to sing, having lined up Mary J. Blige for his newest ad campaign and suited up Jennifer Lopez for the cover of her latest single.
Blige, a friend who has attended many of the designer’s fashion shows over the years, was the right choice for a number of reasons, he said. “The world of music is always strong, but it seems stronger than ever. She’s a modern-day woman, extremely talented, very beautiful and she represents a powerful woman,” Basso said. “I just like who she is and what she stands for. Being part of the music industry is also exciting.”
“Very involved with orchestrating the feeling and the look” of the shoot, the designer was on location when Bernard Hunt photographed Blige for the new campaign. “For someone who performs in front of tens of thousands of people, it was very cute to see her focused on getting it right. She was not Mary J. the singer. She was Mary J. the singer, who is now the high fashion model,” Basso said. “She is a very kind, humble woman. I like that about her.”

BACK TO THE ORIGINS: Fiorucci is back in Milan.
The brand is gearing up to present its spring 2019 collection at Milan trade show White Milano, during the fair’s upcoming edition scheduled for Sept. 21 to 24 to coincide with the city’s fashion week.
The Tortona 27/Superstudio Più venue will host a special area where the brand has been invited to show its new collection as special guest of the trade show.

Bottega Veneta To Skip Spring 2019 Runway Show

NO SHOW: Bottega Veneta will skip the catwalk in September.
The Italian luxury company under the Kering umbrella won’t host a runway show to present its spring 2019 collection, the first designed by creative director Daniel Lee, who was tapped by the brand last June.
According to Bottega Veneta, Lee, who succeeded former creative director Tomas Maier, will make his runway debut in Milan in February. Maier had held the position for 17 years.
A graduate of Central Saint Martins, Lee, 32, was most recently director of ready-to-wear at Céline, owned by rival French conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. This follows earlier stints at Maison Margiela, Balenciaga and Donna Karan.
Bottega Veneta, which will present its spring 2019 collection to buyers at its Milanese showroom, won’t be the only big name to skip Milan Fashion Week in September. Power fashion house Gucci will decamp from Milan for one season to unveil its spring 2019 collection in Paris on Sept. 24.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Plans ‘Jewelry: The Body Transformed’ Exhibition for Fall

ALL THAT GLITTERS: The allure of jewelry never seems to wane with many consumers and the Metropolitan Museum of Art will be giving them more to explore with “Jewelry: The Body Transformed.”
An encyclopedic assortment including headdresses, ear ornaments, brooches, belts, necklaces and rings spanning from 2,600 B.C.E. until the present will be featured. About 230 objects will be culled primarily from the museum’s permanent collection including recent acquisitions. Museumgoers will also see an assortment of sculptures, paintings, prints and photographs that are meant to “amplify the many stories and transformation that jewelry tells,” when the exhibition bows on Nov. 12.
Some of the more unusual elements will be a head-to-toe ensemble from ancient Egypt that was designed to accompany the elite into the afterlife. There will also be items from the Royal Cemetery of Ur from a ritual of ancient Mesopotamia, which is present-day Iraq. Regalia that once belonged to the rulers of Calima, which is now Colombia, will also be on view.
The universality of jewelry will set the stage with a dramatic installation of precious objects made for the body at the beginning of the exhibition. In other galleries, there will be thematic groupings for “The Divine Body,” “The Regal
