Kate Moss, Lily Allen Attend Dior Men Show

LOCATION LOCATION: Lily Allen was in mock casting-agent mode arriving at the Dior Men show on Friday, with her tell-all, best-selling memoir, “My Thoughts Exactly,” set to be made into a film or TV series.
Sporting a silver leopard-print anorak accessorized with a diamond cannabis-shaped necklace she picked up at Icebox in Atlanta, Allen, who is also working on a second book, her fifth album and two musicals, had inadvertently matched her black lipstick to the color of the venue, a sprawling ephemeral structure set on the Champ-de-Mars opposite the École Militaire, with the Eiffel Tower looming in the near distance.
When asked who should play her, the singer, who said the format for the adaptation has not yet been decided, shrugged, surveyed the space, and jokingly pointed to the nearest fellow front-rower: Christina Ricci.
An unassuming Ricci, a friend of Dior Men creative director Kim Jones who had flown from Los Angeles to support his sophomore outing for the house, was taking in the space. “It’s very impressive to see this big Brutalist tent set against the beauty and elegance of Paris,” she said.
Other high-profile guests attending the event included Kate Moss, joined by her beau Count Nikolai von Bismarck; Robert Pattinson and Naomi Campbell.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Moj Mahdara Partner on Beauty Competition

Modelpreneur Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Beautycon Media chief executive officer Moj Mahdara have their sights set on creating their own beauty competition-style TV show. “We’re working on it,” said Mahdara on Thursday night in Los Angeles, where she and Huntington-Whiteley hosted an influencer-packed dinner to celebrate the winner of their “Next Beauty Star” social media contest.
“We were introduced through a mutual friend, actually our facialist Shani Darden, and I felt like I’d known Moj for 100 years,” explained Huntington-Whiteley, who in May launched her Rose Inc. lifestyle platform which highlights new products and personalities in the beauty space. “We talked about how we could bring the brands together and feeling like we wanted to create a mentorship program to find the next rising star in the industry.”
They set five weekly challenges for their followers (create a blue smoky eye, glowing makeup, a sun-kissed look using pastel products), reviewed submissions sent via social media channels, and picked the winner, Cameron Day, who they will be sending to beauty school in L.A. “We loved Cameron and she had a really great story, coming to beauty later in life and moving to L.A. from Detroit to start her career. Hopefully she’ll be doing my makeup soon,”

Tavares Strachan Brings Space Bombers to Paris With CIFF

SPACE MAN: Tavares Strachan is getting into fashion. The Bahamian artist has created a capsule collection and installation of six bomber jackets showing in Paris.
“I never thought I’d be producing something that people would wear,” said Strachan at a preview of the installation at the Crillon. “I don’t see this as fashion to me, this is sculpture.”
Branded under the name B.A.S.E.C., for the Bahamian Aerospace and Sea Exploration Center Strachan created after undertaking cosmonaut training a few years ago, the project is staged by edgy trade fair CIFF under the tagline “The Northwind Trilogy.”
Curated by Neville Wakefield, the three-part project was unveiled at Art Basel Miami in December before hitting Paris and will head to CIFF in Copenhagen at the end of the month.
The jackets were created in collaboration with the artist’s mother, and have a social as well as commercial ambition. Crafted by local women, money raised from their sale will be used to fund training initiatives for women in the island nation and inject resources into boosting local production.
Fewer than 600 jackets will be produced in total, and they will be offered to select retailers worldwide that can support the installation concept. They will sell for around $2,000

Thirties, Forties Fashion Focus of Chicago Exhibition

SILVER SIRENS: The influence of Hollywood on American fashion between the Great Depression and World War II will be explored at an upcoming exhibit at the Chicago History Museum.
Opening April 8, “Silver Screen to Mainstream: American Fashion in the 1930s and Anna Blessmann ’40s,” will trace how the movies and costume designers help put American fashion on the map.
“The exhibition is about Hollywood’s reach, not costume design, so the central concept is how did Hollywood costume design influence fashion,” said Virginia Heaven, curator of the exhibition. “It was profound what Adrian, Howard Greer, Omar Kiam and Irene [Lentz] accomplished in both the movies and mainstream fashion. But they are just a few of the designers that migrated to mainstream fashion from costume design.”
Spanning 2,100 square feet, the exhibit will feature 30 ensembles from the museum’s permanent collection.
Some of the looks on display will include evening dresses by Chanel, Vionnet, Schiaparelli and Alix, which later became known as Madame Grès. These Parisian designs allude to how the influence of Paris was about to be eclipsed by Hollywood and WWII, Heaven said.
The majority of garments are by Americans, including Chicago designers Paul Dupont, who dressed Ruth Page, Blum’s Vogue and Martha Weathered.

Parsons Paris Forms Advisory Board to Support Ambitious Growth Plan

Parsons Paris, the European campus of The New School’s Parsons School of Design, said Friday that it has formed an advisory board to provide guidance to university leadership on strategy and growth opportunities, help shape innovative programming and enhance the school’s reputation throughout the world.
Peter Price, chairman and chief executive officer of Premiere Previews and a former trustee of The New School, will chair the advisory board.
Parsons Paris was established in 1921 as the first American art and design school in the French capital. The school offers programs and courses that build on the fashion, design, art, media and technology, and strategic design and management curriculum of Parsons School of Design in New York.
The advisory board will hold its inaugural meeting on May 15 to coincide with the school’s annual year-end fashion show.
“As The New School celebrates its centennial this year, and Parsons Paris looks ahead to its centenary in 2021, the advisory board will play an integral role in supporting an ambitious growth plan in Paris and our mission to provide a world-class education experience for outstanding artists, designers and scholars,” said Tim Marshall, provost of The New School.

Balmain Marches Toward Democratization With New App

PARIS — Balmain is continuing to ramp up its digital credentials with the launch of an app that will allow consumers access to insider content from the house. The app, available on iTunes from today, is part of creative director Olivier Rousteing’s drive to democratize access to high fashion and make it more inclusive.
“For too many years, the legendary ateliers, boutiques and runways of Paris have only been open to a very lucky select few,” stated Rousteing. “We’d like to try to begin to change that, by inviting as many members of our Balmain Army as possible into our Balmain universe.”
The app features augmented reality content that can be accessed, for example, by scanning posters that have been fly-posted around Paris since last night. The label’s men’s show this evening will be uploaded online from Saturday, while its couture show on Jan. 23 — its first in 16 years — will be live-streamed through the app. A further option will offer an immersive tour of Balmain’s Saint Honoré flagship, due to open mid-February, and new content will be added regularly.
“We always said that Balmain will define a new communication strategy based on entertainment, based on inclusivity, based on authenticity, but

Tracy Reese Teams With United Airlines to Suit Up Female Employees

Tracy Reese will skip having a fashion show next month in New York, but she has been focused on another runway — designing uniforms for some of United airlines.
For the past five years, 70,000 staffers have been wearing uniforms (from Cintas) which have had the occasional updates. Reese, along with Brooks Brothers and Carhartt, is using her expertise to get the United team suited up in new looks. Pilots, male flight attendants and customer service reps will wear Brooks Brothers uniforms. Reese has designed uniforms for female flight attendants and customer service reps that will be manufactured by the American sportswear maker and retail chain. Carhartt will be dressing ramp service, technical operations and catering operations employees.
Still in the wear-testing stage, the final uniforms are expected to be rolled out some time in 2020.
The three U.S.-based companies are the latest brands to link up for airline uniforms. British Airways recruited Ozwald Boateng, Delta lined up Zac Posen and Turkish Airlines tapped Ettore Bilotta for their respective uniforms last year.
In a phone interview Thursday, Reese explained that United executives, “said the reason that they came to me really was because their population is very diverse and the women really felt like

State Bags Strikes New Charitable Initiative Inspired by Colin Kaepernick

State Bags, an accessories brand with a give-back model, has today launched its newest charitable initiative inspired by athlete Colin Kaepernick’s famous defiance within the NFL.
The campaign, titled #WhatDoWeTellTheKids: WhyWeKneel is the latest installment of State’s aim to aid in social education programs for children. This particular campaign focuses on local athletics and law enforcement, aiming to bridge a gap between the two.
The brand has photographed and conducted interviews with athletic coaches as well as former NYPD and Marine Corps officers to examine both sides of the argument for kneeling, while also parsing the politics, social actions and public issues of our time.
State Bags has built out a web site with content dedicated to these issues and has also made a donation to Operation Conversation: Cops & Kids to mark its launch.
State cofounder Scot Tatelman said of the initiative in a statement: “As our business has grown, so has our platform and responsibility in using it to shed light on social issues and injustices that impact marginalized populations. Our newest #WhatDoWeTellTheKids project, ‘Why We Kneel’ shares the often lost narrative around Colin Kaepernick by featuring coaches, former NYPD and Marine Corps officers in communities most affected by the issues Kaepernick

“This is the first time we’ve really been able to sit back and enjoy what we’ve done,” says Rhode Resort cofounder Phoebe Vickers, celebrating her label’s new six-piece capsule collection for Shopbop at a flower-festooned dinner at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont Thursday night.
Jaime King, Skyler Samuels and Shopbop fashion director Caroline Maguire joined guests in wearing the collection’s vacation-ready, exclusive cactus and hibiscus flower-print dresses (some sold with fun, matching belt bags), while sipping prosecco in Bungalow One, before sitting down to dinner beneath a rainbow grove of blooms created by L.A.-based florist Art Fleur.
“We love to nurture young designers,” said Shopbop’s Maguire. “Rhode Resort especially resonates with who our brand is; it’s bright, cheery and colorful — our customer loves it.”

Rhode Resort was founded in New York in 2014 by Vickers and Purna Khatau, who met as freshman roommates at Hamilton College and discovered they had the same taste during their first trip to stock their dorm room at Bed Bath & Beyond. After school, Khatau gained experience as a buyer for Harvey Nichols in London, while Vickers worked in advertising. They reconnected over a desire to create daywear that bridged

Homme Plissé Issey Miyake to Hold First Presentation in Paris

NEW PLEATS: Homme Plissé Issey Miyake, a men’s line from the Japanese designer, is holding its first presentation in Paris on Jan. 17.
Choreographed by Daniel Ezralow, the artistic presentation will take place at the Pompidou Center at 9 p.m., following the Issey Miyake show earlier in the day at 11 a.m. in the Palais de Tokyo. Ezralow choreographed a presentation for Homme Plissé Issey Miyake featuring the men’s gymnastics team of Aomori University in 2013. The Pompidou Center presentation will take place in same space as a recent exhibit on Japanese architect Tadao Ando, a large room with windows lining one side.
Homme Plissé Issey Miyake was established in 2013 as a masculine counterpart to Pleats Please, which was launched two decades prior. The clothing is meant to be light and comfortable, with uniform pleats to keep fabric from sticking too close to the skin.
Designed by Miyake and his teams, pieces to be featured in the presentation are part of the fall winter 2019 collection, with most of the items pleated after being cut and sewn. The line has been growing with an offer ranging from ath-leisure and casual style clothing to suits.
In another recent Paris performance, Issey Miyake opened the

Socialite Clothing Unveils First Denim Range

It’s in the jeans.
Los Angles-based Socialite Clothing is expanding its offering by launching a denim range.
“We have always had great tops, super soft knits, and a strong dress business. The one missing element to complete the look was the denim,” owner and creative director Stephanie Kleinjan said. “Now we have completed the uniform.”
The assortment is priced from $89 to $178 with Kleinjan tapping Eero Gathers — a veteran of the category with stints at Ksubi, Genetic Denim and Seven For All Mankind — to head up the design.
Sized from 22 to 32, the range is made up of 11 jean fits, including a retro, baggy Nineties style, high-waisted versions with slim leg or straight leg options and a barrel fit style. The assortment is completed with two short styles and two jacket styles, one with cut-off sleeves and a boyfriend oversize style. The brand chose to go tonal with the logo, embroidering it in a denim thread on the back belt loop of the jean rather then a traditional denim patch.
According to Kleinjan, price was a key component when developing the collection. “With a void in the mid-hundred-dollar range, we challenged ourselves to design, develop and deliver premium denim,” she

Saint Laurent Inaugurates Paris Headquarters

NEW DIGS: Saint Laurent may again be absent from the Paris men’s show calendar this season, but its new showroom is guaranteed to generate buzz: After three years of restoration work, the French fashion house has moved into its expansive new headquarters on Rue de Bellechasse on the French capital’s Left Bank.
Buyers will get their first peek at the premises during the men’s sales campaign, scheduled for Jan. 20 to 26. It marks a return to the roots for the house, founded by Yves Saint Laurent in 1961, which previously had its head office and showrooms on Avenue George V.
The site at 37-39 Rue de Bellechasse originally dates back to 1671, when it was founded as the Abbaye de Penthemont convent. Rebuilt in the 18th century, it was most recently used by the Ministry of French Armed Forces.

Saint Laurent was due to share the building with a Marriott hotel, though it eventually secured the exclusive use of the premises. The brand declined to confirm the final size of the headquarters, initially billed as 3,000 square meters, or 32,300 square feet.

The new line will offer 12 stockkeeping units and seven styles — five for women and two for men — and all styles will retail at 165 pounds.

Paris Men’s Show Calendar Still In Flux as Protests Loom

IN FLUX: The calendar for next Saturday’s shows at Paris men’s fashion week continues to evolve, as organizers work to avert any danger of France’s yellow vests movement spoiling their carefully planned showcases.
Following Dior’s decision to advance its show to Friday, several other brands have rescheduled, although they have stuck to their original Jan. 19 date. Brands have contacted guests to advise them of the new time slots, but have requested the details be kept confidential in order not to alert protest organizers.
The show calendar on the web site of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, French fashion’s governing body, has not been updated yet to reflect the changes. Brands showing on Saturday include Sacai, Loewe, Thom Browne, White Mountaineering and Hermès.
Ralph Toledano, president of the federation, said it was in touch with city authorities to make sure everything goes without a hitch.
“We are working with the Paris police, which have made a number of recommendations concerning locations and time slots. Naturally, they are implementing every possible and imaginable measure, so we have followed those recommendations in a responsible manner,” Toledano told WWD.
He noted that it wasn’t the first time the federation has tweaked its schedule

In partnership with the British Fashion Council and BFC ambassador David Beckham, designers Nicholas Daley, Paolina Russo and Priya Ahluwalia will present their designs at the “MakerLab Presents: Here to Create” presentation at Garage Amelot on Jan. 18 at 4 p.m.
Models will walk down the runway wearing customized pairs of Adidas Originals SC Premiere shoes, crafted by the three designers in collaboration with Parisian ateliers.

Diamond Producers Association Appoints Managing Director for North America

The Diamond Producers Association, or DPA, has appointed Kristina Buckley Kayel as its North American managing director.
Buckley Kayel previously served as vice president of communications, North America for Van Cleef & Arpels. She has also held marketing and public relations roles at Bottega Veneta, Ferragamo and Baccarat.
Beginning her new role on Feb. 4, Buckley Kayel will be responsible for creating new marketing strategies that further the organization’s “Real is Rare” motto.
“Kristina’s experience in the fine jewelry sector, along with her comprehensive communications expertise, business acumen and creativity, gives her a unique industry perspective. We are excited to have her join the Diamond Producers Association and work with us to strengthen and build upon our mission in the United States,” DPA chief executive officer Jean-Marc Lieberherr said of the hire.
The DPA was founded in 2015 by seven of the world’s biggest diamond-mining organizations as an industry-saving measure. Lab-grown diamonds are on the rise and Millennials have proven averse to the diamond tradition — weary of their conflict-riddled past and high price tag. Thus, the mining companies sprung to action, looking to reingratiate themselves with younger generations.
The DPA’s ‘Real is Rare’ campaign was launched in 2016 with the goal to teach Millennials

Will New York Fashion Shows Ultimately Land at The Shed?

When will New York Fashion Week set up its fashion shows at the Shed, which opens April 5?
For years, reports have been circulating that the fashion shows would take place at The Shed once it was completed. The Shed revealed Wednesday that the new nonprofit cultural organization dedicated to commissioning, developing and presenting original works of art, across all disciplines for all audiences, will have its opening season starting April 5. The Shed looks to present world premiere works in the performing arts, visual arts and popular culture.
