Handsome: to maintain its reputation as a fashion house

The author is an analyst at NH Investment & Securities. She can be contacted at [email protected] — Ed.

Handsome is a leading domestic high-end fashion brand. It strengthened its fundamentals both through a no-sell pricing policy and through proprietary distribution channels for The Handsome House and The Following visible earnings growth for the company’s beauty category products, share price revaluation is in the cards.

2022 will be the year of change

We are running a hedge on Handsome at Buy, with a TP of 46,000W. Our TP is derived by applying the 9x average P/E for domestic fashion brands to our 2022E NP estimate. With Handsome’s stock price of W34,950 (as of March 24) equivalent to a 2022E P/E of 7x, our TP offers a 32% upside.

As fashion represents 99% of Handsome’s existing portfolio, the company needs a breakthrough in the domestic apparel market. We expect 2022 to be a year of change for the company, given: 1) the strengthening of its online business to meet the needs of MZ generations; 2) visible result of concept stores in large cities; and 3) its plans to focus on expanding the beauty category.

Directly Managed Retail Channels to Report Strong Sales

For 2022, we forecast consolidated revenue of W1,472.9 billion (+6% yy) and revenue of W166.9 billion (+10% yy). Online sales are expected to reach W309 billion (+7% year-on-year), accounting for approximately 21% of total sales. As for EQL, although its transaction volume was only W10 billion last year, Handsome plans to develop EQL as a fashion curation platform for MZ generations. This year, the trading volume at EQL is expected to be around W35 billion.

Handsome’s own offline retail channel, The Handsome House, will likely continue to prove its worth. To date, Handsome operates The Handsome House stores in Gwangju, Busan and Jeju and its high-end outlet Handsome House F/X (Fashion Express) in Cheongju. Unlike department stores, its directly managed offline stores allow the company to save costs and deploy more effective marketing activities. We expect their average monthly sales to reach around 800 million W.

Starting this year, Handsome’s beauty category is expected to grow faster. After launching its Oera cosmetics brand in August 2021, the company plans to open Liquides Perfume Bar, a premium perfumery, in 1H22. Noting that fragrances are particularly popular among MZ generations, we believe Handsome’s recently launched cosmetics brand, including its high-margin fragrances, will drive future earnings growth. If there is visible growth in earnings from the company’s beauty category products, a reassessment of the stock price should be considered

I went to fashion week in the metaverse

Written by Lea Dolan, CNN

The night before covering a virtual reality fashion week was a lot like the night before any industry event, only instead of renting outfits and planning travel itineraries, I was downloading Google Chrome extensions and thinking too much about the creation of my digital avatar. (I played it safe in the end, pairing my natural hair and eye color with a cute nautical-inspired top and a raised eyebrow for a permanent skeptical expression.)

I was preparing to attend a week-long virtual fashion event in the Metaverse: a network of unique digital worlds that caught the attention of the fashion world. Industry headline The Business of Fashion predicted it will be the “next gold mine” as young consumers continue to dig deeper into virtual reality (81% of Gen-Z have played games video over the past six months, according to the “State of Fashion” headline which also recorded that the younger generation already spends an average of 7.3 hours per week in virtual worlds).

While fashion shows have been held in the metaverse before (designers such as Mimi Wade, Mowalola, and Collina Strada have shown individual collections on the IMVU virtual platform), the event, which kicked off March 24, hosted by online platform Decentraland, included a host of show schedules from Dolce & Gabbana and Philipp Plein, fireside chats with Tommy Hilfiger himself and even a virtual performance by Grimes, making for an all-encompassing event experience. It will likely become an annual tradition, Sam Hamiliton, creative director of the Decentraland Foundation, said on a Zoom call. “There are still a lot of moving parts, which I think is a bit traditional, but I’m confident,” he told CNN before the event opened. “Behind the scenes is a virtual version of a real fashion week. There are still people sewing behind the scenes, if you will, in 3D software.”

But the final experience was far from flawless – technical difficulties, overheating hard drives and lackluster graphics clouded the fantasy of this supposedly limitless landscape.

To enter the Metaverse, you must first verify yourself. One option (the only option that worked for me and my decade-old MacBook Air) is to link your mobile crypto wallet. My decidedly empty crypto wallet appeared in the corner of my screen for the entire session – something of a damper on the ambitious nature of fashion.

Underdressed and disappointed

But who would spend their cold hard cash in this weird digital clubhouse, anyway? Each avatar is given at least 30 pieces of clothing that they can wear for free, and even a handful of quirky accessories like sunglasses or tiaras. A few digital t-shirts seemed like more than enough creative expression for something as intangible as the Metaverse. Or so I thought.

The first event I tuned into was the Dolce & Gabbana x UNXD show, where the Italian label debuted 20 metaverse wearable looks in a venue that looked like both a football stadium and a nightclub. It was one of the first shows of the week, and as the purple and black dance floor silently flashed (music popping in and out at random intervals), attendance seemed light with what seemed like around 25 attendees. Some beamed late – literally, in a flash of electric blue light – and missed the show entirely, while other avatars, often merged together due to glitched graphics, stared straight ahead. In the bottom left corner of my screen was a running chat box feature that suggested some guests were still learning about the technology. Prior to the event, a steady stream of sarcastic comments testified to a cynical atmosphere. “Wow this place sucks,” one user remarked. “How can I have fun here?” asked another.

Watch the D&G <a class=fashion show.”/>

Instead of using human avatars as models, Dolce & Gabbana literally interpreted the concept of a podium – sending giant, bipedal feline creatures down the circular track. But the clothes – if you could call the indistinguishable collection of pixel clothes – pale in comparison to the inventive outfits of my fellow avatars. Flared glowing falcon wings, neon changshans, gold chrome cyclops sunglasses and black Tron-like leggings with electric blue panels; the metaverse dress code was futuristic chaos, and suddenly my gift tiara wasn’t cutting it anymore. But getting equipped, even virtually, is an expensive undertaking. Printed bucket hats and puffer jackets, plus a brightly winged tuxedo by the notoriously ostentatious brand Philipp Plein ranged between $1,670 and $2,740 apiece.

In addition to a parade schedule, Decentraland has also built a luxury shopping district – like a digital fifth avenue. Lavish shop windows of Elie Saab, Peter Dundas, D&G, Etro and South American brand Chufy were set up in an elegant shrub-lined street. Here, the attention to detail was impressive, from the monogrammed awning extending from every window to the opulent architecture. For example, hanging storks hung above the exterior of Chufy’s digital flagship, which was later covered in rainbows and Japanese Ukiyo-e art, including “The Great Wave.” by Katsushika Hokusai.

Inside the Peter Dundas store, a screen built into the back wall showed the brand’s Pre-Fall 2022 campaign video. The cyber models stood ready in pixelated versions of the looks shown on screen. Users were supposed to be able to buy the clothes to strut around Decentraland, but since there were no clicks to try on those chic outfits, it was more of a cold show than a revolutionized shopping experience.

Elsewhere in the metaverse, Tommy Hilfiger, DKNY, and Selfridges have created similar pop-up stores. Some, like Selfridges, built huge multi-storey postmodern structures, while other stores looked more like storefronts or open showrooms, covered in campaign logos and imagery. Each participating fashion house — a hot ticket, according to Hamilton, which said it was still turning down brands hours before the event began — was partnered with a team of Decentraland 3D software designers who built the clothes on display.

After some window shopping, I headed to the Philipp Plein after-party, where about 70 to 90 players “got some emotions” — that is, they performed pre-programmed moves like blowing a kiss, making angry hand gestures, raising a hand like a curious student, and several dance moves – in front of a DJ set broadcast live from someone’s living room.

This curious party took place at “Plein Plaza” – a sparse digital space that includes the designer’s $1.4 million cyber-skyscraper. Opposite the monogrammed tower is MONA – Plein’s underground NFT art museum which features an exhibition of previously unseen NFTs created by the designer and his collaborator and digital artist, Antoni Tudisco.

A future to explore

While other designers rented their retail space for the event, Plein purchased its digital lot in February. Her decision speaks to the high hopes many have for metaverse fashion. But the experience still has a long way to go if it is to become a shopping destination rather than a gimmick.

Decentraland’s event has been described as the first inclusive fashion week, offering a front-row seat to anyone with a crypto wallet (actually, not that much). But it took me two Macs and a Dell laptop to finally get into Decentraland — and even then my sessions lasted 15 minutes at a time before crashing.

And while virtual fashion weeks can curb the likes of air travel and unnecessary set construction for shows, there’s also an environmental cost to virtual realms that rely heavily on sophisticated computer systems.

Glitches aside, the experience offered a window into a fascinating future worthy of exploration. The ambition behind Decentraland’s first fashion week was cause for celebration. And if fashion is all about new and new, then the Metaverse was the hottest place in town. More than the announced designers, it was the other guests who brought a burst of creativity. It also showed potential for other industries. Beauty brand Estée Lauder’s giant rotating bottle of Advanced Repair night serum was a marketing spectacle to behold, and the “Unplanned Paths” digital photography exhibit at “The Chockablock” cyber-gallery was immersive enough to feel as a real alternative to in-person viewing. .

But unless you’re joining a gaming PC (and even then, expect an intense delay), virtual fashion week can be as unreachable as the real thing. For now.

Uncertainty over Carla Zampatti’s $25m Woollahra home

Uncertainty over Carla Zampatti’s $25million Woollahra home as her children decide on next steps – nearly a year after her fashion designer’s tragic death

Carla Zampatti’s daughters, Bianca and Allegra Spender, have yet to agree on a listing for the designer’s $25million property in Woollahra, nearly a year after her death.

According to title of the 1928 Italian-style house remains in Carla’s name.

Realtor Georgia Cleary advises the family on the future of the property as they decide on next steps.

However, it is believed that the house will not be on the market anytime soon before the end of Australian Fashion Week and the federal election.

Carla and her ex-husband John Spender bought the house in 1975 for $220,000 and lived there until 1986.

The designer returned to the property after the couple separated in 2009.

Carla, 78, died on April 3, days after falling during an outdoor opera performance.

The mother of three and grandmother of nine had spent a week in hospital after the crash.

Born in Italy in 1942, Zampatti emigrated to Australia with her parents in 1950 at the age of nine and created her famous fashion brand at 24.

Her designs have been worn by some of Australia’s most influential women, including Princess Mary of Denmark, Australia’s first female Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman and Ms Berejiklian.

The forward-thinking fashion designer said goodbye during a state funeral at St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney.

Carla was named Australian Designer of the Year in 1994, received the Australian Fashion Laureate in 2008 and a year later was made a Companion of the Order of Australia, Australia’s highest civilian honour.

L’Abeille opens its doors and more restaurant news in New York

From the beginning, TriBeCa’s conversion from warehouse district to food hub has featured opulent, upscale dining destinations. Think Chanterelle, Montrachet, Bouley, M. Chow and Danube. That hasn’t changed: the most recent additions include A white street, Atera, Jungsik and now this restaurant, housed in a former coffee and tea warehouse. The executive chef and a partner, Mitsunobu Nagae, serve French cuisine with Japanese touches in a setting that is both informal, without tablecloths, and luxuriously appointed with plush snow pea velvet. Mr. Nagae, 34, from Osaka, worked in Paris at Le Doyen before joining the Joël Robuchon empire, notably L’Atelier in New York, then Shun. When he found himself distraught after restaurants were closed by the pandemic, Rahul Saito, an affluent local and food lover, approached him for this new venture. They define it with the French term “bistronomie”, which means a bistro for an elegant dinner. As for the name of the restaurant, it is a sly reference to Mitsu, which means honey, named after the chef. (“Abeille” means “bee” in French.) Mr. Nagae’s menu includes miso-glazed pigeon grilled over binchotan charcoal, marinated lobster with vanilla vinaigrette, and a dessert of strawberries with lychee, rose and shiso. There’s a six-course tasting menu, $180, in addition to the a la carte menu. French bottles and especially champagnes dominate the wine list, curated by John Mckenna, the beverage director.

412 Greenwich Street (Laight Street), 212-542-3898,

A third location with a more upscale approach to this Japanese restaurant, which marries classic sushi and chawanmushi with items like a tuna tortilla, has opened. It’s on two floors, but sushi omakase ($150) is only served at the ground floor sushi bar, which has 12 seats. (Open Wednesday)

47 Prince St. (Mulberry St.), 323-828-0096,

In Tune Hospitality by Massimo Lusardi added this salon, disguised as a locksmith and cobbler, to the block where he also has Uva and Uva Next Door. The new spot, with velvet accents, serves drinks and small plates.

1488 Second Avenue (78th Street), 917-557-0217,

The movie “Saturday Night Fever” inspired this red sauce joint, an outgrowth of Manero’s Pizza. You might know what to order without even looking at the menu, except there’s no Chicken Parm. (Wednesday)

Primark brings back the nostalgic brand of the 90s and 00s for a new range of sleepwear

If you grew up in the late 90s and early 2000s, you’ll no doubt remember how iconic the Powerpuff Girls were – and Primark just brought them back.

The cartoon show was a staple for the younger generation, and while it’s had its own revival in recent years, nothing beats the original.

That’s why fans will be delighted to see the original trio of power-girls – Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup – have made their way to stores near them.

The retailer has launched a line of Powerpuff Girls-themed sleepwear

The fast fashion giant has announced that it is now selling a brand new sleepwear range inspired by the hit 90s cartoon and prices start at just £6.

The new range includes a nightgown, a top and pants combo and a pair of fluffy pink slippers.

The original Powerpuff Girls trio are the latest iconic characters to be welcomed into Primark, as the retailer regularly offers shoppers their range of nostalgia-themed products.

From Harry Potter to Disney, the department store is known for stocking some of the beloved brands we’ve loved and grown up with.

And it looks like fans can’t wait to get their hands on the new range after sharing a snap with their fans on Instagram with the caption: “New sleepwear for The Powerpuff Girls! Prices from £6/€7 # Primark #NewArrivals.”

“Need,” exclaimed one buyer.

“Oh my god,” praised another.


“Omg remember they loved them,” a fourth commented.

“HELLO??? WE NEED,” replied a fifth.

And the fun doesn’t stop there for Powerpuff Girls fans, as the retailer has also recently started stocking £12 seamless sets that feature the popular characters.

Primark’s Powerpuff Girls sleepwear range is now in stores. Find your nearest store here.

Fashion designer Brooks Luby seeks to break Fashion West rules

Fashion designer Brooks Luby calls herself a low-key rebel. She hasn’t always wanted to create clothes her own way, but over her decades-long career, she has found satisfaction in experimenting with new ways of creating clothes while sticking to traditional methods.

“When you study fashion, you are taught to create things that people will want to buy. I only do things that I want to do,” she says.

Luby’s creations with Brooks Ltd. are difficult to pin down to a particular style. Her career as a Denver fashion designer and occasional boutique owner began in the mid-’70s. She’s known for her laid-back, sophisticated outfits for special occasions, with unexpected details that have become her signature.

She says her clientele is multi-generational. “Because I’ve been around so long, I have an older generation now bringing their kids in so they have the experience of working with a designer,” Luby says. “It educates them on quality clothing and creates a bonding moment for them.”

Her latest designs focus on the reuse of materials, aligning with the slow fashion movement, which highlights the durability of high quality garments that are made to last. “When people come in, I show them how I use a leftover piece of fabric and put things together to make it interesting. Then the garment becomes a treasured item that they’ll want to keep because there’s a story behind it. “, she explains.

To fuel her new fabric reuse mission, she began asking people to bring her clothes and tablecloths that they would throw away or donate. “A lot of people have tablecloths that they spent a lot of money on or that were passed on to them by people who aren’t around anymore and they don’t use them. I make something out of them for them and it has value. sentimental. I think people want to wear clothes that mean something. At least those are the people I want to attract,” Luby says.

Another technique she’s been using recently is draping and making one-size-fits-all clothes because they don’t conform to a specific pattern. “I let the fabric talk to me and do what it wants to do on a three-dimensional body,” she says.

For Luby, it’s another opportunity to create clothes that last and stay wearable even if someone’s body changes over time. It also highlights Luby’s instincts for creating unique objects that showcase the designer’s vision. “I let the fabric hang how it wants, shape it and sew it that way. It becomes interesting and cannot be repeated because there is no pattern. It allows me to throw off the rules I have had my whole career,” she added. said.

These “rules” include patterns she’s created in the past, cut from patterns she’s perfected over the years. Luby likes to mix the two styles. “I have a pretty eclectic aesthetic,” she comments, adding that she thinks there’s always a place to have a plain sheath dress and then dress it up with a bold jacket.

More recently, she prepared for a show at Western Fashion on Sunday, March 27, where a collection of designers will showcase a standout design on a model, then host a pop-up store for purchase. Luby says she doesn’t do many fashion shows, but she’s excited about the piece she created for this one.

Luby is no stranger to fashion shows. At the age of forty, she became a breast cancer survivor and was asked to be the exclusive designer for a series of fashion shows for other survivors. “Right after my surgery, the most important thing for me was going to work,” she says. “I wanted to be seen as the same person I was before breast cancer. When I made clothes for other survivors, I made them regular clothes. I wanted to be respected for my knowledge as a fashion designer rather than a cancer survivor.”

Her clothes took on a special meaning for the women who marched on the catwalk, giving them confidence and equal treatment. “I had the chance to dress women who were going through this experience,” she says. “It’s devastating to go through chemo and lose your hair. Being asked to walk the catwalk and have your hair and makeup done makes you feel like a woman again. It’s very emotional.”

She notes that going through cancer is the type of crisis that changes people, the same way she thinks the pandemic has changed people. For Luby, stopping COVID-19 meant becoming more creative and listening more to her own voice. “I follow my own rules now and I don’t worry about other people’s rules,” she says.

Part of that means working under bespoke, appointment-only rules in his LoDo neighborhood workshop, and make the type of clothes she wants. “Before, people would come to me to do something specific for them, but that doesn’t work for me anymore, because it stifles my creativity,” she explains. “I ask them what they like and design what I think will look good on them. I think people have to trust the designer they ask to make their clothes. It’s a deep experience that I share with people.”

She adds that she doesn’t want her designs boxed and labeled a certain style. “I tried to put myself in one direction,” she says, “and it didn’t sit well with me, because I have too many things that I like to do.”

Luby’s clothes have always had a little something different about them, whether it’s bold or whimsical. She thinks now is the time for people who want to express themselves and wear high quality fashion.

“Due to the pandemic, people are dressing more according to what they want to wear and what is comfortable, as opposed to what fashion dictates,” she says. “I’m trying to ride that wave and I’m having a great time doing it.”

Brooks Ltd will be at Fashion West, Sunday, March 27 at 5 p.m., ReelWorks Denver, 1399 35th Street, Denver. Find tickets, $25 to $240, and more information at

A$AP Rocky launches its new whiskey brand, Mercer + Prince

If the word multihyphenate had a face next to it in the dictionary, we wouldn’t be surprised to find A$AP Rocky there. The rapper, producer, fashion icon, model and actor is no stranger to doing it all, with a reputation as a multi-talented man. And today, he adds another box ticked to his resume: Rocky is getting into the spirits game by launching his own new brand of craft whiskey, titled Mercer + Prince.

Rocky’s whiskey, which sells for $29.99, was created in partnership with Global Brand Equities and E&J Gallo. (It’s available on ReserveBar now and will be in physical stores later this summer.) As a big fan of darker spirits like cognac, Rocky says he’s always been intrigued by the idea of ​​making his own whiskey. – and in launching it now, he saw an opportunity to disrupt his typical production process. “It’s the only category of spirits that would allow us to have a contemporary approach,” says Rocky. “Whiskey has a reputation for being more macho and traditional, but we wanted to redefine it for everyone, taking the influence of different regions and cultures and blending it into one. The way to push culture forward, is that everything is mixed up.

At the ongoing FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week in Delhi, Chennai-based Kaveri Lalchand presents a tea party on the catwalk

Between ice cream cones, Kaveri Lalchand merges the romance of chintz, crochet and cyanotype printing on the catwalk at the ongoing FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week

Between ice cream cones, Kaveri Lalchand merges the romance of chintz, crochet and cyanotype printing on the catwalk at the ongoing FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week

Kaveri Lalchand likes to cut the cake. Even when it’s not his birthday. At parties and celebrations, she usually picks up the cake and cuts it into neat slices. This love of cuts is found in the clothes she designs.

Butterfly Bloom, Kaveri’s latest collection, features three types of hand-cut butterflies, which gives a 3D effect. Her Summer Harvest collection has pom poms and hand cut organza leaves with embroidery on them. These sub-collections including Rose, Pearls Please, Constellation, Oriental Artistry, Tropical Soul and Cyano (fusing cyanotype printing with the charm of chintz patterns, vintage Victorian silhouettes and crochet lace) are part of its main collection, Photographs and Memories, which she will be featured at the ongoing FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week in Delhi.

Nothing is digitally printed, says Kaveri, holding a beige tunic with lace detailing. Admitting design quirks, she says, “I’m obsessed with how to make something by hand and make it look like it was made by machine. We create handprints that look digital,” she smiles.

The Chennai-based designer launched her eponymous label in 2011. Over the years, she’s appeared on shows in Paris, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Dubai and London. This is the fifth time she has appeared at Lakme Fashion Week. “I first participated in 2019 and did the Spring Summer and Fall Winter shows, followed by the SS and AW 2020 shows. And I’m back this year,” Kaveri says.

Its main collection is called Photographs and Memories

After a phygital (a portmanteau of physics and digital) showing in 2020 (a format she admits is confusing), Kaveri is excited to return to physical shows. “I have just come back from Delhi where I met the directors, the LED technicians, the models. It was buzzing. Interacting with each other and putting things together in person is great,” she explains, adding that there was a bubble and the models were isolating themselves. “I had to show a negative RT PCR and do a Rapid Antigen test at the entrance to the site. During live shows, the seating capacity has been reduced to 50%. So instead of 400 something, I’ll have an audience of about 216 people,” she adds.

Fashion Week is offering two showcase spaces this time: Runway and Atelier. Kaveri chose Atelier because it gave him the ability to create a different layout for the ramp. “I’m creating a garden path and a tea set,” she says as she prepares refreshments in the store. A vintage ice cream maker in pink and white hums softly, taking pride of place among her pastel linen dresses.

As Kaveri fills one cone with orange ice cream and another with chocolate, she says, “I want my store to be a place where people can enjoy a moment of relaxation. Ice cream vending machines and old-fashioned fluffy cones bring back memories. Memories play an important role in creation.

There are eight sub-collections

Kaveri has just designed a line for children, which will be launched soon. There are adorable little linen dresses and shirts. “We have mothers, grandmothers and grandchildren wearing the same outfit from my shop,” smiles Kaveri.

She says she started drawing eleven years ago, for personal reasons. “I had a hard time finding trendy linen clothes in my size,” she says. This led her to create a brand that does not adhere to size stereotypes. “It has to do with personal body types. My styles are generous. I make clothes that make you feel good about yourself. One of the biggest compliments is when my clients say: whenever I’m down and want someone to lift me up, I wear your outfits.

A Night at the Museum with Ralph Lauren

Gigi Hadid opened the show wearing a black and white graphic sweater from the RL Collection over a crisp white shirt with black pants. His sister Bella Hadid quickly appeared on the runway, and a few looks later the neutral palette was interrupted by a pop of red, appearing as a line accent in the collection. Later in the show Tyson Beckford featured Lauren’s impeccable tailoring and a plaid pocket square.

“The models slept with us with their eyes! It was my favorite part. They invited us into the show,” Rachel Brochananalso wearing a rendition of the tuxedo with a beaded vest and accompanied by her sister, gushed.

Zoey Deutsch joined the conversation, a bright spot in a monochromatic hot pink suit, to reflect on Ralph’s legacy. “He’s the greatest American fashion designer of all time. Everyone has a connection with him and his clothes. For me, all my favorite things my dad wore were Ralph Lauren. He had a really amazing vintage collection. It’s my childhood. I would steal them. I have so many. That’s what Ralph Lauren means to me,” she said.

“I feel like it means something different to different people. I also grew up with our dad, wearing these Ralph Lauren cashmere sweaters, they feel like home,” Broshanan echoed.

From sequined Fair Isle puffer jackets to futuristic sunglasses and tailcoats, Ralph Lauren’s AW22 collection transported viewers from visions of America’s past to assumptions of its future. The juxtaposition of the two led to unexpected combinations on the runway like leather and ruffled collars, backless necklines adorned with ties, and modern women’s suits accessorized with a fitted Yankee hat and bomber jacket reading. New York.

During the show’s finale, Lauren was greeted with a standing ovation as he stood at the top of the stairs leading to the runway. As the applause soared, one thing was clear: New York was back in style.

The French brand Hermès continues to invest in its production capacity

Hermès International has continued to invest in its production capacity and announces the creation of two leather goods workshops (France, Charente and Gironde) with 500 jobs by 2026. Since 2010, the French manufacturer has opened nine leather goods workshops in France, bringing the number of saddlers employed by the group to more than 4,300.

To support the success of the leather goods and saddlery collections, Hermès confirms its ambition to grow and continue to develop its production capacity with the construction of two new leather goods workshops, the opening of which is scheduled for 2025 and the other in 2026. In time, 500 craftsmen will exercise their know-how of excellence in the future workshops located in Charente, in the town of L’Isle-d’Espagnac, and in Gironde, in the town of Loupes, specifies the company in a press release. .

These two new projects come on top of the three other sites under construction in Louviers (Eure), Tournes and Cliron (Ardennes) and Riom (Puy-de-Dôme), for which recruitment and training are underway. .

The Leather Goods of L’Isle-d’Espagnac joins the South-West Leather Goods cluster with those of Nontron and Montbron and the Gloves-Leather Goods of Saint-Junien, established in this area for more than 25 years. The Leather Goods of L’Isle-d’Espagnac will be inaugurated in 2025.

Along with Maroquinerie de Guyenne, the new Manufacture des Loupes will form the Girondin division of Hermès, which will become the group’s eighth leather goods division and will eventually employ more than 500 artisans. This new site will be inaugurated in 2026.

Strongly committed to building lasting relationships with its local partners, Hermès is preparing to set up in L’Isle-d’Espagnac by working in cooperation with the Nouvelle-Aquitaine development and innovation competition agency, and the Community of Greater Angouleme agglomeration. For the development of its new sites, the House relies on its partnerships with Pôle Emploi, the Rectorate of Poitiers, the Greta adult training service of Poitou-Charentes Angoulême Agency and the Greta CFA of Aquitaine, adds the press release. .

In a spirit of companionship that values ​​the transmission of know-how and artisanal culture, the L’Isle-d’Espagnac site will rely on the know-how of the craftsmen of the Maroquinerie de Nontron, de Montbron and de la Ganterie -Leather goods of Saint-Junien.

The Loupes site will benefit from its proximity to the expert craftsmen of La Maroquinerie de Guyenne, which will be established in the Gironde area in 2020. The Hermès School of Expertise, a training center for Hermès apprentices approved by the National will expand to Montbron in September 2022, and to La Maroquinerie de Guyenne, in early 2023. The School trains its apprentices in a sustainable profession based on the House’s excellence in leather goods know-how.

The two new workshops located in L’Isle-d’Espagnac and Les Loupes will become the 23rd and 24and production sites of the Hermès Leather Goods & Saddlery division, all located in France.

Bill protecting religious freedom passes Iowa House in bipartisan fashion

DES MOINES, Iowa – The Iowa House of Representatives has passed a bill, HF 2437which protects the right of Iowans to the free exercise of their religion last Thursday.

State Rep. Skyler Wheeler, R-Orange City, the bill’s steward, introduced the bill.

“It just says that if a government is going to treat secular conduct, secular business, etc., one way, it must also treat religious conduct the same way,” he said.

No one made any further comments and the chamber proceeded to a vote.

The bill passed 93 to 1. State Representative Charles Isenhart, D-Dubuque, was the only no.

HF 2437 is a response to COVID-19 restrictions seen in other states where churches have been closed but other businesses, such as Nevada casinos, have been allowed to remain open.

The bill prohibits a government entity from interfering with a person’s free exercise of religion. The bill also prohibits government entities from treating religious conduct more restrictively than any secular conduct that poses a reasonably comparable risk or from treating religious conduct more restrictively than similar secular conduct because of a need or of a presumed economic advantage.

The bill provides that a person whose free exercise of religion has been impaired in violation of the bill may assert that violation as a claim or defense in a judicial or administrative proceeding. It also provides that the government entity may be held liable for actual damages, attorneys’ fees, costs, and other appropriate remedies and allows the person to obtain an injunction against the government entity.

Finally, HF 2437 also prohibits a county or city from enacting any private or civil law that would interfere with a person’s free exercise of religion.


The Iowa Senate’s version of the bill, SF-2284, which came out of the committee was not put to a vote in the Iowa Senate. However, since he is attached to the Iowa House bill, he is still eligible for debate even though the second funnel deadline has passed.

SF 2284, however, includes language similar to the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act. It states that a governmental entity shall not substantially interfere with a person’s free exercise of religion unless the governmental entity can demonstrate that the action constituting or giving rise to the charge is in pursuit of a compelling government interest and is the least restrictive means of furthering that interest.

Your Tuesday Briefing: The Fight for Mariupol

Hello. We cover the ongoing destruction of Mariupol, Ukraine, the search for survivors in a Chinese plane crash and the lifting of Covid restrictions in Hong Kong.

Ukraine has rejected Russia’s request that soldiers defending Mariupol surrender at dawn on Monday. Efforts to reach the hundreds of thousands of people trapped there remained fraught with difficulty as Russian forces stepped up their attacks.

“My city is dying a painful death,” wrote one survivor after fleeing. “For twenty days, I would die of it. I was in hell.”

A powerful explosion also rocked kyiv on Monday and reduced a sprawling shopping center to rubble. A Times reporter saw six bodies there covered in plastic, as rescuers battled fires and pulled other victims from the wreckage. Here are the live updates.

The context: After nearly a month of fighting, the war is at an impasse. Russia is turning to deadlier and more brutal methods, including targeting civilians, as it suffers troop and equipment losses that would limit its ability to mount offensives.

Resistance: About two million people who remain in Kyiv are galvanized by a newfound unity. In the ancient city of Lviv, simple rituals took on a new and sometimes surreal meaning.

Diplomacy: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is drawing on other nations’ stories of struggle to rally support, invoking the civil rights movement to American lawmakers and the fall of the Berlin Wall to Germans. Our chief fashion critic also analyzed her most famous piece of clothing: the olive green tee.

Other updates:

An airliner with 132 people on board crashed Monday afternoon in the Guangxi region, a mountainous region in southern China. It was unclear if any of the crew and passengers survived.

Carrie Lam, the leader of Hong Kong, announced Monday that the city will lift its ban on flights from nine countries on April 1 and reduce quarantine times for vaccinated residents returning from overseas from 14 days to seven.

Experts and government officials have said the worst of a wave caused by Omicron may be over and residents are at higher risk of infection from community transmissions than imported cases.

But even though its new measures remain among the strictest in the world, Hong Kong’s approach appears to deviate slightly from that of mainland China, where Shanghai and Shenzhen remain in lockdown.

Context: For most of the pandemic, Hong Kong isolated itself from the rest of the world and forced travelers to self-quarantine for three weeks in a hotel.

Here are the latest pandemic updates and maps.

A little over half a century ago, there were only about three dozen red-crowned cranes in all of Japan. They are now 1,900, thanks to the work of conservationists, but few scientists think they could survive without being fed by humans.

The long-running Eurovision Song Contest pits countries against each other for pop supremacy. Artists like ABBA (Sweden), Celine Dion (Switzerland) and Julio Iglesias (Spain) have all participated once.

Now the United States wants to recreate some of the magic of Eurovision with “American Song Contest”, hosted by Kelly Clarkson and Snoop Dogg. Here is a primer.

Will I know any of the songs? No, they must be new, although applicants do not have to write their own stuff.

Who is in competition? The competition has 56 entries. Jewel (who grew up yodeling in harsh conditions in Alaska), Michael Bolton (Connecticut) and Sisqó (Maryland) are among the famous names.

Sunday Funday Moment: Famous Latina Fashion Brand Holds LA Pop-Up Tour in El Paso

EL PASO, Texas– From LA to El Paso. Los Angeles-based clothing brand Hija De Tu Madre traveled to the border this weekend to spread their positive message to all Jefas in our community.

“I only had $500 and I was living at home, so I really built this whole business on one product which is our Virgencita jacket that I wear and that was it,” said Patty Delgado, Founder, CEO and Designer of Latina Lifestyle Brand, Hija De Tu Madre.

Being the daughter of two Mexican immigrants, Delgado always knew she wanted to create something that represented her culture while empowering women and future entrepreneurs.

“I founded the company in 2016, it was during the 2016 election and I felt very called to create a space to celebrate culture,” Delgado said. “During this time, I was hearing so many negative stereotypes about immigrants and Latinos and just wanted to create a really safe space that celebrates our identity through something as simple as fashion.

Fast forward 6 years later and Hija De Tu Madre has sold products to people in over 30 countries, and this weekend the lifestyle brand held their three-day border pop-up tour and their first stop was at local Latina-owned business, Relic of Chuco.

“It’s really exciting, one that they chose to stop in El Paso and two that it’s another Latina owned business but on a bigger scale so even just seeing another business on a bigger scale scale is really motivating. I hope Latinas here are business owners and for Latinas in general to carry the brand,” said Chelsie Evaldi, owner of Chuco Relic.

Locals spent their Friday afternoon shopping for unique clothing, accessories and stationery the brand is known for.

Patty Delgado, founder of Hija De Tu Madre

Delgado hopes this border pit stop can keep El Paso and LA a little more connected.

“There’s a huge community here that we haven’t been able to connect with so much in real life,” Delgado said. “We’re based in Los Angeles so it’s really important for us to grow outside of that cause Latinos are everywhere we really wanted to connect with our Texas community.

And Delgado encourages people to continue supporting small businesses in their area.

“It’s about investing in your community and putting your money where it matters and that’s in our community and that’s where people need it most,” Delgado said.

Hija De Tu Madre’s short-lived tour wraps up in El Paso on Sunday afternoon at the Upper Valley Market, but they’ll cross into New Mexico and Phoenix. Click here for details on upcoming tour dates.

Easy styling tips for TALL women

Well, it’s a common notion that short women often have problems when shopping and wearing certain styles of clothing, but have you ever wondered what tall women go through?

Let us tell you that just like petite women, plus size women should also think twice before buying anything! If you’re a petite woman who envies a tall one for all kinds of things she can wear and look fabulous, let us tell you, tall women have their issues too. Not all styles are flattering for plus size women and they can very well make mistakes with their hair. Therefore, we are here to share some quick and important styling tips that plus size women can use in their favor.

– If you are someone who wants to flaunt your curves, use a waist tie or a belt that fits your waist perfectly.

– Are you tall and have a large chest? V-necklines will make your bust flatter.

– You should wear ankle strap shoes if you have long legs and want to make a shorter skirt look gorgeous.

– If you have a torso longer than your legs, you should try wearing an above-the-knee or high-waisted skirt with a crop top. This balances out your figure.

– If you have longer legs and a shorter torso, you can try a long top over pants. Make sure the colors and patterns are correct.

– Loose or oversized top can be tucked into high waisted jeans. This is another great way to create a curvier silhouette.

– You need to balance the wider shoulders with a fit and flare dress or even a skater skirt.

– Feel free to wear heels. If you like them, wear them. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

– If you want to wear a dress, go for an asymmetrical dress as it can be very effective in making your legs look more proportionate.

– You can layer a jacket that ends just at your waist over longer t-shirts if you are shorter at the top.

– You can use long necklaces to lengthen your torso. It helps draw attention to your waistline.

– If you’re tall and curvy, you need to show off your best features with clever tailoring. Show off your petite waist with a crop top. Choose high-waisted skirts that land on the most flattering part of your legs if that’s what you want to flaunt.

– Wear prints or bright colors on half your body as it helps you look smaller, if at all, that’s what you’re ready to look like.

Best Shoe Design Colleges in USA

Shoes were invented to protect the feet only. Our distant ancestors living in cold regions wore animal skin shoes that also covered the calves. And those who live in warmer regions rolled palm leaves under their feet. Like most things, shoe design has come a long way since then. We wear dress shoes or oxfords for formal events, boots or stilettos for less formal occasions, sneakers for exercise, and pumps or sneakers for casual gatherings. So we have a shoe for every occasion.
Although shoe designers are in high demand, it is difficult to break into the industry without formal education. This is why, as an aspiring shoe designer, you should enroll in a formal shoe design program. Very few colleges or universities offer full-fledged shoe design programs. You can consider clothing design or fashion design programs that cover shoe design in depth.

The best shoe design colleges in the USA are:

  1. The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising
    FIDM’s Footwear Design program is part of the Fashion Design program. You will learn everything you need to know about the shoe industry, from shoe design and manufacturing to business strategy, during the year you invest in the program. You will learn how to integrate creativity with technical skills to create shoe collections that will become a trend in national and global markets. You can easily grasp the vast knowledge that the program instructors share with you. You also have the opportunity to learn and network with geniuses from top fashion brands such as Just Fab, Sam Edelman, Seychelles, Skechers, Sbicca, Steve Madden and TOMS. Many graduates have been hired by these companies while others have launched their own shoe collections.
  2. Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA)
    PNCA has partnered with PENSOLE Footwear Design Academy to launch its first program focused on shoemaking called Design Intensive. You can take one of three tracks in this intensive program: Color and Materials Design, Footwear Design, and Functional Clothing and Accessories Design. You will learn the complete design process from conceptualization to development as part of shoe design. Thus, you will gain in-depth knowledge of the entire shoe design process through the hands-on program. Experts from some of the best shoe brands will be part of the process to guide and mentor you on your journey to creating extraordinary shoe designs. You will be delighted to know that the founder of PENSOLE, D’Wayne Edwards, is one of these experts!
  3. Woodbury University
    Woodbury University is one of the universities on this list that does not offer a program solely dedicated to shoe design. But you will learn a lot about shoe design by pursuing its fashion design program. In this program, you will be able to explore niche segments of the apparel industry, including women’s denim, footwear, lingerie, and hats. Woodbury University has strong ties with several top brands such as BCBG, Kenneth Cole, Komarov and Max Mara. Through these associations, you can intern at some of the most prestigious fashion brands in the United States. Woodbury students designed outfits for members of the Burbank Philharmonic Orchestra. The university has established many such links with neighboring businesses, making it easier for students to find jobs. This alone makes Woodburn University an excellent choice for an aspiring shoe design professional. This further adds to the reputation of the university’s fashion design program.
  4. The Institute of Fashion Technology
    FIT offers a bachelor’s degree in prop design and related programs that last a year or two. Although these programs don’t focus on shoe design, you can learn a lot while earning a degree. As part of the program, you will be able to visit design studios and production facilities in one of the world’s leading fashion destination hubs, New York City. You can intern at top brands such as Brown Show, Kenneth Cole, and Nine West. You can also work on group projects and enter contests.

Hungary: the importance of mental health and psychosocial support for refugees and displaced people – a mother’s story of a life disrupted by war in Ukraine – Hungary

Normally, Maria Bilovodska runs a successful fashion brand in Kyiv, the Ukrainian capital. These are not normal times. At the registration center at the Hungarian border crossing point of Beregsurány, Maria looks tired and pale after her long journey. Sitting on a low chair, surrounded by other exhausted-looking families, she waits for a bus that will take her and her 2 children, Miron (13) and Maria (8), to Budapest, then to France where she has a sister. The children fall silent, soaking up their new reality.

Speaking to the WHO in Hungary, Maria shares her company’s Instagram page. It shows photos of models wearing the glamorous outfits they exported to Canada and throughout Europe. Within days, the bombardment of her town forced her to close her business and flee her country.

“Here in Hungary, there is no bombardment, no noise, and it is much less painful for the children. It’s so good to feel calm and safe,” she says.

After arrival, when they have rested and eaten, refugees receive information on where to access medical, mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS), COVID-19 testing and vaccination. The registration center refers refugees to dedicated specialists who can provide adults with psychological first aid, a humane, empathetic and practical form of support, and help children come to terms with the distress of having to leave their homes. Those who wish can stay several nights until their departure.

Maria says she is well cared for and now has all the information she needs to support her family on the next leg of their journey – although she can’t stop thinking of her friends and the rest of his family stuck in Ukraine.

As she shares videos of the destruction, her composure briefly cracks and she begins to cry. Many of his friends live in towns currently surrounded by the Russian army. “I tell them, please go, and they say, ‘We can’t – we can’t get safe passage. “”

Pulling herself together, Maria talks about her next steps. Although she is heading to France, she wants to return to Ukraine as soon as possible to revive her activity.

“We had never been in need before. We had a good standard of living, we earned money, we never expected any other kind of life. Now we have to leave. I really hope we have a place to go back to, our own town.

WHO has deployed an MHPSS expert to Hungary who works with local non-governmental organizations to protect the mental health and psychosocial well-being of refugees and aid workers. WHO is also working hand in hand with the Hungarian government to provide training and translation of international MHPSS guidelines.

Chelsea star Ben Chilwell is taking time off for injury rehabilitation as the England left-back models for luxury fashion brand Prada

BEN CHILWELL took a well-deserved break from rehab to pose for luxury fashion brand Prada.

The Chelsea and England star was caught up in Sports World Magazine’s fantasy threads.


Chilwell was broken last month speeding up his injury recoveryCredit: Instagram / @calteck10

The 25-year-old took Twitter to show off the stylish outfit to her three-quarters of a million followers.

Chilwell wore a white Prada undershirt, with a matching black Prada shirt on top.

But he’s not the only Chelsea star to have donned designer clothes in recent years.

On loan midfielder Billy Gilmour modeled for fashion brand Burberry in 2017.

And the pair’s talents obviously extend beyond the football pitch.

An injury against Juventus in the Champions League group stages in November initially ruled Chilwell out for the entire season.

He went under the knife late last year after sustaining a partial tear in his anterior cruciate ligament.

But in video captured by team-mate Callum Hudson-Odoi at Chelsea’s Cobham training base last month, Chilwell hinted at a return before the end of the campaign.


He was seen kicking a ball in the treatment room as he continued to speed up his recovery from a long-term injury.

And the fact that Chilwell was moving freely had given Blues fans hope they would get a glimpse of the star left-back before the end of the season.

Jackets over sweaters, leggings and even frilly tulle additions to a boring outfit will make it pop, influencers and fashionistas obviously agree.

The designer, who has designs in Kate Middleton’s Best Dresses collection, spoke of tensions between her and Meghan after calling the Duchess’ Givenchy wedding dress “simple”.

“It was a quote from a larger interview, she really didn’t say anything negative,” Christine said of Emilia’s comments about Meghan’s dress.

“People thought Emilia Wickstead had really wronged Meghan, and it turned out that Emilia Wickstead hadn’t wronged Meghan, that was a quote taken from it.”

Speaking about the epic way Meghan told the world she and Emilia weren’t on bad terms, she continued: “Maybe a month later Meghan was actually wearing a custom Emilia Wickstead dress. , and this situation shows the power of Meghan’s fashion choices.

“She was able to tell with that fashion choice, Emilia Wickstead and I are great. We’re on great terms, it was all a huge misunderstanding and look at the lovely dress she designed for me.”

The fearless sexuality of Rosa Bonheur: Google Doodle pays homage to an iconic French painter

On Wednesday, March 16, Google marked the 200th birthday of French painter Rosa Bonheur with a fascinating doodle. Rosa Bonheur was best known as an animal painter but she also made a name for herself as a sculptor, in a realistic style. One of Rosa’s best works came in the form of her paintings, namely ‘Plowing in the Nivernais’, ‘The Horse Fair’ and ‘Fenaison en Auvergne’.

Google in its doodle showed an animated image of Rosa Bonheur where she can be seen painting a flock of sheep on canvas. Rosa Bonheur was born in 1822 in Bordeaux, France and took up painting – all thanks to her father – a minor landscape painter. Rosa received the Legion of Honor from the French Empress Eugénie for her 1853 painting “The Horse Fair”. Interestingly, one of Rosa Bonheur’s works, “Monarchs of the Forest”, sold at auction in 2008 for over $200,000. Besides her paintings, Rosa was known for her fearless sexuality. She was openly lesbian.

The fearless sexuality of Rosa Bonheur

Rosa Bonheur was one of the most avant-garde artists of her time. In addition to being a lesbian, she opted for men’s clothing – a controversial decision in the 19th century. Cross-dressing required formal permission which Rosa finally obtained in 1857, but this was only within the city limits. According to the website Your dictionary, the famous painter cut her hair short and dressed in men’s clothing, which quickly became her usual style. She apparently also developed the habit of smoking cigars. Rosa Bonheur never married but had a long-standing relationship with Nathalie Micas.

If published reports are to be believed, Rosa always maintained that her behavior was itself a form of performance art and she also believed that impersonating a man was the only way for a woman to ensure social and professional equality. Rosa’s outspokenness about her personal life was groundbreaking considering the time period.

Who was Rosa Bonheur’s partner?

Rosa Bonheur has been in a relationship with Nathalie Micas for over 40 years. Micas was her childhood friend who died in 1889. She first met Micas in 1836. Nathalie Micas was represented in the Hall of Science at the World’s Columbian Exhibition in Chicago by a railroad brake she had patented. Micas also took care of Rosa’s affairs. According to the website Elisa Rolle, Princess Stirby, while referring to Micas, said: “Rosa Bonheur could never have remained the celebrated artist that she was without someone by her side.” After Micas’ death, it is reported that Rosa, during the last year of her life, leaned towards the American painter Anna Klumpke. Rosa, Micas and Klumpke are all buried in the Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris.

Briony Gorton, young owner of an internationally successful fashion label and Instagram ‘influencer’, is set to open her first boutique in her hometown of Burnley

And the 26-year-old is thrilled to open her first-ever boutique in her hometown next week. Based in the Burnley town center shopping centre, the countdown is on for the official opening of Talliah Rose next Friday.

Briony said: “It’s something I’ve wanted for a long time and there could be no other place than Burnley for my first shop.

“I’m proud of my roots, this city means a lot to me and I’m so excited to bring my brand, Talliah Rose, here.”

The newsletter mute the noise

Briony Gorton is to open her first store for her fashion brand Talliah Rose in her hometown of Burnley

Today, Briony’s online apparel and swimwear business is an international success with 211,000 followers on Instagram coupled with the 223,000 followers Briony has on her own personal account.

Briony’s entrepreneurial spirit was evident when she visited garage sales with her grandparents when she was six years old. She quickly learned the art of bartering for goods and by the age of 13 she was asking her mother, Tina, to buy items on eBay which she would sell for a profit. When she earned £700 from her small business aged 13, the writing was on the wall for Briony’s future success.

A former Burnley College student, Briony’s business took off when she bought £100 worth of fabric and had a seamstress design her bikini. The bespoke bikini, embellished with Swarovski crystals, sold on fashion site depop and within six months Briony had made £100,000 by the age of 20.

Briony dropped out of college to focus on building her business which she runs with her mother. Papa Mick also helps with the business.

Briony was devastated when people started taking her designs and selling discounted copies made in China, but she couldn’t do anything because she hadn’t filed a patent on them.

She didn’t let that stop her and started looking for factories and suppliers of clothes and shoes. She now has suppliers all over the world and her own warehouse in Accrington. And Briony is as proud of her warehouse as she is of her new store.

Briony said: “I couldn’t have done this without my parents, they supported me through everything and my mum is my rock and keeps me grounded which is vital in this business.

“I don’t come from a wealthy family, but we got together and worked hard to make my business a success. I’m proud of that.”

Several investors have tried unsuccessfully to become part of Talliah Rose, but Briony is fiercely protective of her brand.

As a well-known Instagram “influencer”, Briony is inundated with messages from young girls complimenting her on her beauty and style.

She said: “It’s important to me to get the message across that images on social media are just that, an image, and that people can portray themselves however they want.

“Also, I work hard in my business, a lot of people don’t realize that, they only see the glamorous side of it.

“I want young women and girls to see if they work hard they can achieve their dreams no matter where they come from.”

Alia Bhatt turns 29: A look at the actress’ style evolution

After the release of Gangubai Kathiawadi, there is no doubt that Alia Bhat is one of the biggest names in the Bollywood industry. From its beginnings in student of the year like Shanaya to her stellar performance in Sanjay’s big movie Leela Bhansali as Gangubai, Alia has gone from strength to strength in the span of ten years.

Along with her on-screen performances, her clothing choices have also seen a dramatic shift when it comes to taking risks, playing with her style while being acutely aware of what works for her.

On the highway Actor’s 29th birthday, let’s take a look at her evolution of styles over the years:

She has always been styled by celebrity stylist Ami Patel. In this look for Kapoor and sons promotion, Alia wears a black ensemble by Shivan and Narresh.

This Gucci back-to-school look that you can’t imagine wearing Alia these days!

Alia’s approach reconciletoo, has become refined and much more minimalist, as have her fashion choices.

Alia wore an anti-fitting white satin dress with black feather detailing for the promotions of Dear Zindagi.

This sequin saree by Manish Malhotra with the off-the-shoulder blouse and smoky eyes is one of many outfits from a style era that Alia seems to have bid farewell to.

She also wore a lot of A-line dresses, something we haven’t seen her wear in a while.

During the promotional tour for Badrinath ki DulhaniyaAlia seemed to have pivoted to more refined silhouettes and toned down on the smoky eyes for minimalist kohl-lined eyes.

Her first red carpet fashion moment that we loved was on IIFA 2017 when she wore this stunning black dress by Zuhair Murad, ushering in a glamorous Alia who knows how to make a statement.

Even for her traditional cutsAlia has started opting for more timeless ensembles, like this pretty green Sabyasachi lehenga together which she wore while posing next to handsome Ranbir Kapoor for making their relationship Instagram official.

From then on, Alia began to minimize OTT glam and maximize timeless elegance with her makeup and accessories.

The sketched Moschino suit was a pleasant surprise, marking the start of Alia’s bold and experimental fashion streak.

Cut to one of his recent and almost viral looks in this Manish Malhotra lehenga with a super cool infinity blouse that she wore as a bridesmaid for Anouchka Ranjan.

And finally, the last of them (equally beautiful) white sets which she wore for the promotion of Gangubbai Kathiawadimaking as many ripples in fashion as in the film industry.

Rwandan designer on her promotion to Swedish fashion brand H&M | The new times

Fashion designer Sandrine Gisa made history last week after being appointed head of the Visual Merchandising Group (VMG) at Hennes & Mauritz, a Swedish multinational clothing company based in Stockholm which focuses on fast fashion clothing for men, women, teenagers and children.

As of November 2019, H&M is present in 74 countries with more than 5,000 stores under the company’s various brands, with 126,000 full-time equivalent positions.

The Muhanga-born designer, who now lives in Gävleborg, a town in southern Sweden three hours from the capital Stockholm, is the youngest to hold such a position at just 29, which people say , became a huge problem as the last youngster to lead the global department had done so at 42.

In an interview with new times, Gisa talks about becoming the first Rwandan to work for the global fashion brand and what it means for her and the Rwandan fashion industry in general.


What powers do you hold in your new appointment at H&M?

I manage the visual merchandises (MD) department. H&M has so many departments and every design it’s ever done has to go through visual design before it becomes something people buy. It must be approved by the visual design department before going into production.

The fact that H&M is a global company headquartered here in Stockholm means that all decisions made must be implemented in all H&M stores, of which there are more than 5,000 worldwide.

When I got the job, it scared me a little when I realized that the decision our team is going to make will be global.

What does your appointment in such a big fashion brand like H&M mean for you as a designer and for the fashion industry in Rwanda?

When I was appointed in December, I went home and told my mother and my brothers. I just thought the job wasn’t a big deal until I started seeing people at the company so excited, saying there were people who had been with the company for over 35 years but never managed to return to the post.

I started to take things seriously when one of my bosses said to me ‘did you know that you are the first and the youngest woman to hold this position, especially from Africa? Your country should be proud of you!

Since then, I understood why people see it as something huge for me and for the Rwandan fashion industry in general.

Honestly, I’m a person who believes in actions over words. I like to take things slowly and let actions speak for me because I have people who have always doubted me.

So the position really means a lot to me personally or to my country.

How was your journey in fashion until H&M appointed you?

My mother is a seamstress, I grew up watching her do this for a living. She still helps me on my journey. I remember designing all the collections I presented at Kigali International Fashion Week in 2019.

So I grew up with the dream and passion of one day becoming a designer to the point that I tore up the clothes she bought for me to give them my favorite designs. We were arguing about it but I insisted, and then she had no choice but to teach me how it was done.

With the passion, I now have a master’s degree in fashion business and I happened to work at H&M during my internship as a tailor. Since then, we have become familiar. It is very difficult to work in a big company. With passion, I started working for them as a saleswoman in their store, and after finishing my studies, I joined their design team.

I didn’t go that far because I come from a wealthy family, but that’s all I told my dad and he never doubts me. I’m not the best in the whole company but God made me the chosen one.

Do your new responsibilities force you to stop your career as a fashion designer?

Yes, I have no choice but to quit because I’m supposed to work closely with them.

However, my goal is to one day own such a great company to develop and help my country because as a designer I personally watch how things are done and later see how we transfer skills because we have so many story that we could put into a design that can inspire people around the world.

How do you think this step can inspire the fashion industry in Rwanda and the African industry in general?

I think it can inspire Rwandan fashion and the African fashion industry because we have so much in us that people see but we fail to recognize ourselves.

Because in everything we do, we do it as an African native that when someone sees it, they get inspired and it’s sad that other people take advantage of our ideas. I would like to see the same happen not only in my country but in Africa as a whole. I would like this to happen in Africa too, especially in my home country, because we have so much to offer people who just think of genocide while our name always comes up.

What major fashion events have you attended during your career as a designer?

I represented Sweden at the Kigali International Fashion Week in 2019 in Kigali then in 2020 in Tokyo.

Other events where I have presented my collections include Scandinavia Fashion Week in Scandinavian countries.

But for now, for the sake of my new job, I can’t continue doing it because I’m no longer allowed to present at other fashion events because to avoid conflicts with employers, I might copy their creations.

Why do you think visual design is important to becoming a successful designer?

Visual merchandising design moves with the times. People used to make visual designs and presentations on papers, but they easily lost them or the papers got old. But, in the digital age, you can create your visual designs on your laptop and protect them from those who want to copy them.

Beauty and fashion leaders create their own space

Beauty line and fashion retail leaders agree that while the industry has grown more diverse and racially inclusive in recent years, there is still a lot of work to be done.

A panel discussion titled “L’Oreal: Representation in Beauty” took place on Momentary Saturday as part of NWA Fashion Week.

Angel Beasley, director of specialty hair for Walmart, who also leads diversity and inclusion for all of Walmart Beauty, moderated the discussion.

Beasley first asked the panelists to discuss what it’s like to be a minority in the worlds of beauty and fashion and what drives them to lean in and pursue their craft.

Korto Momolu, a fashion designer who appeared on the fifth season of “Project Runway” and now resides in Little Rock, said she thinks it’s important to use her voice to represent herself, as well than other immigrants and the Arkansans.

As a Liberian, Momolu says she sometimes comes up against negative attitudes about her past as an immigrant, but she would like more people to understand that she considers Arkansas her home and a place to be. work hard.

Kendall Dorsey, a celebrity hairstylist who worked backstage at NWA Fashion Week, said he was definitely in spaces where he felt different and was the only person of color in the room.

“At first I felt like I had ‘made it’, but then I had to find my way through this lifestyle,” Dorsey said. Now that he has achieved some level of recognition, he hopes to champion others in a similar position, other black creatives from small towns or rural parts of the country, in hopes that they can find platforms and places to cultivate their talent.

“I worked so hard for every nook and cranny that came my way,” Dorsey said. “I wanted to be seen.”

Each panelist has faced their own challenges in establishing themselves in the beauty industry. For Dorsey, one of those moments was an unwelcome comment about her personal style. He was called intimidating and aloof, which affected him for years until he made peace with not having to “fit in” everywhere.

Tenaj Ferguson, director of marketing for Loreal, particularly in the area of ​​multicultural beauty, said she spends a lot of time thinking about how to approach diverse consumers and welcome them to the brand. She felt defeated in her past work when she had an idea, presented it but was not heard.

Ferguson said there’s a difference between inviting diverse voices to the table and actually asking them what they think, as well as acknowledging and empowering them.

Momolu’s toughest moment came when she had the opportunity to present a collection to Neiman Marcus shoppers in New York. She had reinvested all of her funds into her brand to make it happen and found herself on a shoestring budget, but the meeting was dismissive, telling her to come back with a different collection next season. This inspired her to stick to her instincts and do things her way.

Let’s be “stronger with our voices”, said Momolu. “When we walk into these rooms, if there’s no table for us, let’s make our own out of scraps of fabric. I did it my way. Artists, stand up for what you believe in.”

Luis roi de Liévin: the French star starts the season in style in front of his audience – Elite News

France Vincent Louis started his season with a win and gave the home crowd exactly what they wanted with a thrilling win at the Liévin Indoor Triathlon Festival on Saturday night.

The two-time world triathlon champion and Super League Triathlon legend was pushed all the way in the final, but his short course prowess gave him the win.

It may have been indoors, but the Stadium Arena Couvert Liévin event featured a swimming pool and a transition area inside a 200m athletics track, on which the cycling events took place. and running.

A succession of heats and then semi-finals reduced it to the last 12 contenders, with Luis the big favorite – and not only with the fans.

Thin margins in the final

Margins were good however in such a short format, lasting less than 10 minutes, and it started with a 150m swim, with Luis emerging from the water in second place.

But he was soon in front on the bike and never gave up that position.

Coming out of T2 and starting the 1km race, it soon became clear that it was a three-way battle, with Spaniard Genis Grau and Hungarian Csonger Lehmann keeping the pressure on Luis throughout.

But a stinging kick down the home straight gave Luis a fraction of the daylight on his two rivals and he crossed the line in 9:33, just a second ahead of Grau.

Lehmann finished third clear, ahead of Briton Harry Leleu fourth and Irishman James Edgar fifth.

The event was last held in 2019, when Briton Chris Perham triumphed, but this time he retired in the semi-finals as he continued his comeback from injury.

However, there was another winner in the women’s event in the person of Germany’s Nina Eim.

This race was also a thriller for the capacity crowd, with Belgian Jolien Vermeylen looking in control of the race.

However, Eim passed with two laps to go and then held off compatriot Lisa Tertsch by two seconds for the victory.

Vermeylen had to settle for third place, while Briton Iona Miller narrowly missed out on the podium in fourth.

“It’s such a cool event,” Eim said afterwards. “It’s always fun to race here – I’ve missed it and hope to be back next year.”

A fashion designer shapes a sustainable business

From throws made from 100% recycled wool to ‘anti-squat’ leggings made from recycled polyester and recycled spandex, one ambitious designer has tackled the colossal carbon footprint of the fashion industry.

Angela O’Donnell, from Cork, founded sustainable and ethical fashion brand YAWUW – an acronym for You Are What U Wear – last year.

Having gained in-depth knowledge of textiles and development with her former luxury womenswear brand, Angela’s “moment of enlightenment” came when she first became a mother.

Angela’s ‘light bulb moment’ came after the birth of her daughter

She said: “The climate crisis will be one of the biggest issues in the next generation and the fashion industry is one of the worst culprits.

“My moment of enlightenment was when my little girl was born. When she’s my age, 37, and she goes, ‘Mom, what’s going on in the world? made ?’ I can say that I did something.

“I went to design the best products to try and change an industry that is just decimated because of the textiles they use and the conditions people work in.”

Angela’s designs use 100% recycled or organic materials

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, we dispose of around 110,000 tonnes of textiles as waste each year in Ireland. Of these textiles, 42,000 tonnes are clothing.

Angela uses recycled polyester yarn obtained from plastic bottles (PET), organic cotton, recycled wool and recycled elastane for her creations.

She said: “It’s so much easier to design products and clothes made from traditional textiles because these textiles are readily available.

“You can buy them from multiple suppliers, but whereas sourcing and keeping sustainable textiles from 100% recycled PET or recycled spandex, or something like that, it’s really difficult because they are not common.They are usually made in the Far East and sourcing them, testing them is very difficult.

“My life would be ten times easier if I just said to myself, ‘Yeah. I’m going to send this over there.’ do you take videos of your factories?”

Using 100% recycled textiles can be a challenge. Angela spent a year prototyping a pair of leggings that would pass the ultimate test.

She said: “The reason leggings are really hard to make from 100% recycled material is because most of the leggings you’re buying right now say they’re made from plastic bottles.

“But when you dig into the composition, you see that they’re only partially made from recycled bottles. It’s the rest of the composition that’s spandex or nylon that’s really hard to recycle.

“On my original samples, the leggings are made from 80% recycled polyester and 20% recycled spandex, but since the textile is so new, we were unable to dye the inside of the leggings.

“So when you put them on and do your squats, you can see yourself basically snapping. It was a disaster.

“With our final prototype, the quality of the recycled textile is so much better, and we could dye it completely. They are completely transparent!”.

Angela believes that the environmental impact of the global fashion industry will only be reduced by government policy.

She said: “I’ve always been obsessed with fashion. I’ve always used fashion and style as a way to express myself. But when you realize the reality of the industry and how quickly with which fashion businesses run and operate, you can’t ignore that anymore.

“I think real change will only come when governments say, ‘If you bring products here, you have to tell us that 50% of your textiles are made from sustainable materials. This is how you offset your carbon. Your packaging is biodegradable. Three simple things’.”

In our “Climate Heroes” series of reports, we shine a light on the people who are taking action to protect our environment and fight climate change. Although these people come from all walks of life, they share a common goal of improving the world around us.

FW22 Fashion Week Style Of “Euphoria” Cast, Ranked

Miu Miu’s micro-mini skirt and adidas x Gucci collab are undeniably eye-catching for the fashion heart, but the industry is simultaneously entangled in a love affair with the cast of hit-and-miss Euphoria. fall-winter 2022 fashion month.

While EuphoriaIG villain and cool vintage outfits are the stuff of high school staff’s worst nightmares, the looks are an essential cornerstone of the top-rated show, especially for TikTokers.

But, the gag is – most actors are just as stylish IRL.

The Euphoria cast took over fashion month, gracing the front rows and even walking for brands like Prada, Blumarine and Bottega Veneta, to name a few.

From superstars to “happy to be here” non-enthusiasts, we’ve ranked the Euphoria the cast’s off-screen fashion month style from best to worst.

1. Zendaya: the “it” girl

Naturally, Zendaya, the latest face of Valentino, attended the house show on March 6.

After her Valentino Rendez-vous campaign, the Emmy-winning actress did it again with a dazzling pink number. I mean, you can never wear too much pink at Valentino’s pink show for their pink collection, can you? By the way, did I mention the collection was pink?

Either way, her sophisticated and chic look single-handedly won fashion week — another win for Zendaya and her CFDA Fashion Icon credentials.

2. Chloe Cherry: Breakout Star

While the internet can’t stop talking about Chloe Cherry’s lips, the catwalk can’t live without it.

During FW22 Fashion Month, the Euphoria star became an industry eye candy, walking and attending shows for LaQuan Smith, Blumarine, David Koma, Fashion East, Supriya Lele and GCDS.

It’s safe to say that Cherry is now a fashion girl, luscious lips or not.

3. Alexa Demie: Queen Balenciaga

Although I wish Alexa Demie made more appearances at fashion week, her Balenciaga FW22 moment satisfied my craving.

Micro bongs? The leather skirt-over-pants combo? Maddie’s goth energy? Alexa Demie was the moment at Balenciaga – especially for her fans who chanted her name and Maddie’s iconic Season 2 line “you better be kidding” outside of the show.

4. Angus Cloud: king of underrated style

I mean, who doesn’t love Angus Cloud? As EuphoriaAn underrated style hero, Cloud is also fashion’s off-screen gem.

During fashion week’s epic events, the Highsnobiety FRONTPAGE interviewee gave us some iconic moments, including sharing her Cheetos with fellow Coachettes Tommy Dorfman, Megan Thee Stallion and Rina Sawayama during the show.

Not to mention, he and Maude Apatow served up much-needed “Fexi” content, matching tartan ensembles at the Thom Browne FW22 presentation.

Moments in style are one thing but big bonus points for Cloud’s Cheeto moment – the behavior of the king.

5. Hunter Schafer: The Grand Finale

Hunter Schafer was the grand finale of Prada’s FW22 show, creating a proud moment for mums – Schafer’s mother was on hand to support her daughter’s Prada debut.

Not to mention, she also closed out the Gogo Graham FW22 show with a comfy ultra-oversized jacket and teddy bear hand accessory. Ah, talk about an elegant “night night” to the spectators.

6. Jacob Elordi: the bag hunter

At the Burberry and Bottega Veneta runways, Jacob Elordi gave us some tasteful bag action.

Between the matching Burberry jacket-bag combo and the Bottega intreccio leather shoulder bag, I have to say that Elordi’s handbag saga has been quite a sight to watch, adding promising excitement to her monotonous looks.

Although Elordi sadly ditched a handbag for Saint Laurent’s FW22, I’m here for the times it’s in its bag (literally).

7. Maude Apatow: Fashion Week Director

While our 2020 FRONTPAGE guest Maude Apatow attended the Saint Laurent show with teammates Dominic Fike and Jacob Elordi, her actual looks were pretty uneventful.

However, Apatow’s real moment of brilliance came when she channeled an IRL director Lexi while hosting a panel for Rodarte during New York Fashion Week.

8. Storm Reid: The Prada Girl

As a personal fan of rising star Storm Reid in the fashion industry, I longed for more style moments at FW22 events.

Reid is apparently going through her Prada girl phase, wearing several Prada looks in recent weeks, including the sunshine-yellow Prada outfit she flexed during the brand’s FW22 show.

Considering that Prada’s yellow number was the only truly jaw-dropping look of fashion month, it’ll have to do until her next style moment. We want more!

9. Dominic Fike: “Just happy to be here”

As for musician Dominic Fike, he was just “happy to be there”, according to an interview he gave at the Saint Laurent show.

Like his Euphoria character, the “Phone Numbers” artist was a mystery man during fashion week, wearing mostly monotonous all-black looks. While he claimed to be happy to be engulfed in the fashion festivities, he mostly gave off an “I’d rather be anywhere but here” vibe.

As an editor who barely survived fashion week, I can say: I get it, Fike.

Repossi pays tribute to Robert Mapplethorpe in fine jewelry

As one of the great studio photographers of the 20th century, Robert Mapplethorpe saw his life stretched out to the point of nausea. And yet, despite Mapplethorpe’s notoriety, his jewelry designs – a significant part of his creative output prior to his photography – remain criminally ignored.

“He was fascinated by finery, especially jewelry, which he made from an early age,” says Michael Stout, former Mapplethorpe attorney and chairman of the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation. “And he’s always been very interested in expanding his artistic footprint in the fashion world.”

The new Americana Eagle necklace.

The photographer in 1971.

Mapplethorpe, who died of AIDS in 1989, could finally get his wish. Next month, at the request of the foundation, Gaia Repossi, the third-generation creative director of the eponymous company, unveils 10 new high jewelry pieces inspired by Mapplethorpe originals from the early 1970s. two-pronged offer was launched last year.) “They were perfect,” Repossi says of the trinkets Mapplethorpe made for friends and acquaintances, including Halston, Marisa Berenson and Yves Saint Laurent (who Mapplethorpe claimed to have snatched her dice jewelry and domino handcuffs). “But I really wanted to elevate them using noble materials.”

While Mapplethorpe’s long chains and fetish necklaces were made from found objects such as skulls, rabbit’s feet, beads, feathers and even the occasional crustacean, Repossi’s updates are rendered in golds and exquisite diamonds, and their price ranges from $2,050 for a ring to $197,000 for an Americana Eagle necklace. “It’s impossible to collaborate with someone who isn’t there,” Repossi explains, “so I was very careful not to violate their vision.”

His concern has already won the admiration of influential fans. “She really captured the essence and spirit of her designs,” says Frances Terpak, Senior Curator and Head of Photographs at the Getty Research Institute and co-author of Robert Mapplethorpe: The Archives, a book that pays particular attention to the artist’s early Polaroids, sculptures and jewelry. “There is a collector’s bias in favor of his black and white photographs, and the Repossi collaboration will go a long way to remedying that.”

Repossi examines some of Mapplethorpe’s original creations.

No one would have been happier than Mapplethorpe himself. “He absolutely would have loved the Repossi collection,” says Stout. “As he got richer, the level of jewelry he bought for himself increased. He certainly wasn’t going to Harry Winston, but he wasn’t just into cheap pearls anymore, nuts and skulls.

There will be no shortage of Mapplethorpe-related events to wear the pieces. Triptych (Eyes on each other)a musical composed by Bryce Dessner about the life and photography of Mapplethorpe, is scheduled for an extensive international tour, after a run in the United States which was interrupted by Covid; Hadrian, an opera composed by Rufus Wainwright, is revived in Madrid and Barcelona this summer, with artwork by Mapplethorpe as part of the scenography. And in July in London, Alison Jacques, the British gallery that has represented Mapplethorpe since 1999, will present her works, including jewelry, curated by fashion designer Jonathan Anderson.

“Robert sought ultimate perfection and exquisite beauty, often in controversial subjects that were far removed from the art world, with all its polite or seemingly sophisticated inhabitants,” says Jacques. “It is this rapprochement between opposite, often conflicting worlds that has made him the emblematic artist that he is and will be for many generations to come.”

It’s time for micro fashion trends to fall – Massachusetts Daily Collegian

This is how fashion is rapidly changing our climate

Social media apps like TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook have exploded to new heights. Social media has provided fame and high status to social media influencers. This status offers endless possibilities in the world of marketing and advertising. For example, big TikTok influencers can post Shein races, sometimes worth well over $800. Almost immediately after, the influencer’s fans flocked to Shein to buy, buy and buy again in hopes of being like their idol. Because the phrase “Shein Haul” has become so common in society, we need to investigate consumerism as a global community.

Fast fashion is cheap, accessible and consistent with current clothing trends. Companies like Amazon and Shein have exploded due to its wide range of styles and trends at skeptical prices. Fast fashion often has negative results for our environment. The fast fashion industry is experiencing quiet and rapid changes due to the phenomenon of micro-trends. Micro fashion trends are distinct low-end clothing designs that quickly become unpopular in a short period of time. Ads on social networks are punctuated by sharp marketing strategies aimed at attracting a large audience.

The global fast fashion market has grown due to advancements in marketing, media, and technological developments. Garment companies thrive financially while profiting from the woes of our society. Factory workers internationally and in the United States work in inhumane conditions and experience wage theft. The fashion industry has relied on the exploitation of underpaid workers, many of whom work unreasonably long hours. Many fast fashion brands are also notorious for unethical tactics used in clothing development, such as the use of harmful plastics.

Sixty percent of fabric fibers are now made of synthetics derived from fossil fuels, so when clothes end up in a landfill (about 85% of textile waste in the United States is landfilled or incinerated), they won’t end up in a landfill. will not break down. Several other materials that risk harming the environment include fabrics like nylon, an all-synthetic material. Rayon is another cheap material that you see everywhere; its toxic chemicals harm the environment and factory workers who take precautions before using them. Viscose rayon is the least environmentally friendly type of rayon, but the most widely used because it is the cheapest. According to an article in the New York Times, “the viscose process is the most harmful to the environment due to toxic chemicals and inefficient recycling of said components”.

Consuming our clothes ethically is an immediate way to counter the fast fashion industry and the problems that come with it. From an environmental point of view, a more expensive shirt can save the costs of several cheap shirts. Another way to combat fast fashion is to shop for clothes. Apps like Depop, ThredUp and ASOS Marketplace are great places to start if you prefer online savings.

Buying upcycled or upcycled clothing is also ethical because clothing is created from unwanted clothing or scraps. Although recycled or upcycled clothing tends to be more expensive, it saves the costs of buying more clothing in the future. It also prevents more clothes from being thrown away and collected in our landfills. Sustainability efforts have obviously increased over the past decade since news about our climate has become much more dire.

While many recognize the critical impacts of micro-trends in fast fashion, many are not changing their shopping habits as many may believe they are a minor attribution to our global effects. However, the false reality of this is revealed as our world continually consumes unethical clothing to the detriment of mother nature. Ultimately, we can see that our consumption habits need to change.

Creator Agnès b. Famous the work of Frédéric Bruly Bouabré – WWD

Agnès Trouble, the fashion designer known as “Agnès b. uses his passion for the work of Frédéric Bruly Bouabré.

Visiting New York for the first time in two years, the designer said on Wednesday that she had begun to learn about her work after seeing some of it at the Center Pompidou in 1992. The designer attended a preview on Tuesday. premiere at the Museum of Modern Art for “Frédéric Bruly Bouabré: Le monde délié.” An art collector for decades, she has curated an exhibition of her work at her SoHo boutique in Manhattan that doubles as a gallery.

The MoMA exhibit is open to the public Sunday through August 13. This is the first exhibition in the history of the museum dedicated to an Ivorian artist. “I think it was time for that, really because it’s amazing to see all this [work]”, said the designer. “The show at MoMA is absolutely magnificent. It’s philosophical. It’s political. It’s genius.

The designer has been collecting the artist’s work for many years and has exhibited his pieces at the Galerie du Jour in Paris. His work has featured in his collection of artist t-shirts. The piece she loaned to the MoMA show is called “Hommage aux femmes du monde”. Produced in 2007, it consists of 200 drawings in ballpoint pen and colored pencil on cardboard in 6 x 4 inch postcard format, Bouabre’s signature.

The opening of the Howard Street store display was scheduled for Wednesday evening. The exhibition will present 65 drawings in ballpoint pen and colored pencils on loan from the Galerie du Jour. This downtown show will remain on view until May 15.

It is also the first glimpse of Bouabré’s work, from the 1970s until his death in 2014.

Passing through New York, the designer reconnected with her team in the city. In addition to the Howard Street store, there are iconic boutiques in Union Square and uptown Madison Avenue.

“Very happy” to be back in New York, she believes the city will come back to life after so many people have been impacted directly or indirectly by COVID-19. “Spring is coming even though it is snowing today. People will go out again and want to go out. It’s a bit the same in Paris.

However, she acknowledged that “people are worried” about the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the reactions of Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Nobody can tell what he’s going to do, which is a problem,” she said. “And I really like Russia. I have been to St. Petersburg and Moscow several times. I like the people there. There are very nice people in the streets and everywhere. I made an exhibition here with my photographs of Moscow. For now, however, the designer is all about New York and she hopes things will get better for everyone over the next few weeks.

Balenciaga goes where fashion has never dared to go

PARIS — In a cold, dark airplane hangar on the outskirts of Paris, amid reports of more than 1.5 million refugees fleeing Europe from Ukraine, Demna, the unnamed Balenciaga designer who had fled Georgia at the age of 12 during this country’s civil war, built a huge snow globe and started a storm.

In the wind, men and women struggled, holding fake trash bags apparently full of belongings, donning stiletto boots, clutching heavy black coats that flew around them, heads bowed. A few were shivering in boxer shorts, with only towel-like shawls for protection. The long dresses flowed inside out. The music was pounding; overhead, lights (bombs? lightning?) shone in the darkened sky.

Outside the glass, an audience watched, clutching blue and yellow T-shirts the shades and nearly the size of the Ukrainian flag that had been left on each seat, along with a note from the designer (which also read , in Ukrainian, a classic poem — a prayer of strength for Ukraine — by the writer Oleksandr Oles, at the beginning of the programme).

The war had, Demna wrote in the note, “triggered the pain of past trauma that I have carried with me since 1993, when the same thing happened in my country and I became a refugee forever. Forever, because it’s something that stays with you. Fear, despair, the realization that no one wants you.

Thus, a collection originally conceived as a commentary on climate change – a theme that Demna began to explore before the pandemic and which he intended here as a meditation on an imaginary future where snow is relegated to the status of fantasy. created by man – has instead become an exceptionally powerful response to war.

Over the past week and a half of the dispute, fashion has all but apologized for its own existence; dare to offer a frivolous and useless product in a context of global crisis. There has been a lot of lip service to the idea of ​​beauty as an ointment; a lot of things like “All I can do is what I do best”. (Plus, donate cash and emergency supplies, of course, and close stores in Russia.) Lots of reminders to everyone the industry employs.

This is a perfectly valid response to the situation. She can even draw inspiration, as with Valentino, which also began with a voice-over by designer Pierpaolo Piccioli, offering a hymn to the Ukrainian people – “We see you, we feel you, we love you” – before moving on to a collection designed to showcase the power of the individual.

It was built on a single hue: no black or white, but rather a kind of signature hot pink – dubbed Pink PP, about to become an official Pantone color – which was also the hue for the walls and floor. There was a brief section of black, like some sort of palate cleanser, but it was the pink that stood out. And offered an update to the classic Valentino red.

Chunky pink platform shoes under pink tights. Floor-sweeping pink shirt dresses that looked more like royal dresses. Little abbreviated pink sequin dresses. Sheer pink blouses. Molded mini roses. Pink tea dresses covered with flowers. Pink handbags. Pink everywhere we looked, except the faces, which each stood out on their own. The effect was a bit dizzying, but it got the point.

Of course, getting down to business, like Matthew Williams did at Givenchy, is good too.

He combined the streetwear influences first brought to the brand by Riccardo Tisci (layered t-shirts, like a ride through the logos of the past; hooded nylon anoraks under tailored jackets; thigh-high leather boots) with his clichés (“Breakfast at Tiffany’s” beads; ruffled fusions of tulle and organza) plus her own affinity for a bit of hardware. The result was her most cohesive collection to date.

Yet, as Demna has proven, there’s no reason for designers to be afraid to tackle the tough stuff. He had almost, he says in his notes, canceled the Balenciaga show, until “I realized that canceling this show would mean giving in”. So instead, he shook it. It was a risk.

After all: very expensive leather trash bags come dangerously close to bad taste. Although it is the same designer who created very expensive versions of the Ikea bag. Part of his schtick is to elevate the unseen everyday to luxury status, poking fun at the pomposity of the fashion beast.

And the fact that some of his models are wrapped in Balenciaga-branded packing tape jumpsuits might look a lot like a social media-only catnip gimmick.

Especially because Kim Kardashian actually modeled a packing tape look in the audience — an outfit (can you even call it that?) she said took four Balenciaga assistants to create. Not only did the tape make sticky, creaking sounds as it walked, but Ms. Kardashian was, she professed, worried that when she sat down, some sections might tear. (It didn’t, much to her relief, although she said she still didn’t know how she would go to the bathroom.)

Yet backstage after the show, Demna said the tape wasn’t just a joke — it was also a nod to the dressing-up experiences he had as a rootless kid. . And that they would sell the rolls in stores, so everyone could DIY their own look, in a sort of extreme version of do with it and fix it.

The one who has made it clear that for him, the clothes themselves, in ready-to-wear anyway, are perhaps the least of the worries. After all – apart from a strapless denim jumpsuit made from two pairs of jeans (the waist of one formed a bustier over the other), a dress screen-printed to imitate lace, and bags made from merged pairs of boots – most of the stuff as seen through the snow – long jersey dresses, hoodies, asymmetrical flowers, wraparound condoms – looked much the same as they have for a few seasons now.

But combined with last season’s Simpsons show; virtual reality experiences; past and immersive climate change scenarios (for those wondering, most of this season’s set would be recycled, with carbon emissions being offset); plus the Donda shows he worked on with Ye; the unsettling depiction of refugees under glass confirmed Demna’s position as fashion’s greatest and most fearless set designer.

His subject is not the silhouette, it is the human condition. On an epic scale of pop culture.

  • The French group Hermès has three stores in Moscow
  • Hermès “deeply concerned about the situation in Europe”
  • Russians spend $9 billion a year on luxury goods -Jefferies

PARIS, March 4 (Reuters) – The world’s biggest luxury brands said on Friday they planned to temporarily close stores and suspend business operations in Russia.

Bag maker Birkin Hermes and owner of Cartier Richemont were the first companies to announce such measures, followed by LVMH (LVMH.PA), Kering (PRTP.PA) and Chanel.

Palm Angel’s striking jacket featured a black stripe down the hem, giving his look a distinctly Kill Bill-inspired feel.

The best fashion in cinema

Since the dawn of Hollywood, fashion and cinema have been intimately linked. Extravagant outfits and creative costumes will add symbolism and visual splendor to any movie room. In turn, the best clothes on the big screen have influenced shoppers around the world. From Afrofuturistic tribal designs to Shakespearean characters dressed in designer clothes, these films are a feast for the eyes.

Sofia Coppola’s ode to the controversial Queen of France finale lives up to the titular heroine’s reputation as fashion’s first celebrity. Each gown designed by Milena Canonero steals the stage and relays Marie Antoinette’s rise from a naive Austrian princess to extravagant levels of nobility. As the protagonist’s confidence grows, we see her wigs grow, with one even accurately depicting a model ship to celebrate France’s naval power. Marie Antoinette even stuck to the Queen’s ‘cottagecore’ phase as we see Kirsten Dunst flee to the countryside in a delicate white shirt.

“Every dress designed by Milena Canonero steals the stage”VARSITY/DANIELLE JUMP

Canonero refuses to adhere to the militant historical accuracy that complements the film’s tongue-in-cheek aura, also evident in the film’s pop soundtrack. Amidst the anachronistic use of “I Want Candy,” we see heaps of candy-colored Manolo Blahnik shoes (with the brief glimpse of a Converse) that remind the viewer to revel in lavish scenes and never take the leap. film too seriously.

Ruth E. Carter’s costumes perfectly encompass Black Panther’s pressing theme of Afrofuturism. Throughout the creation of the film, Carter diligently researched and incorporated traditional pieces from across the continent. No scene embodies this more than T’Challa’s initiation ceremony into his royal role, when the tribes of Wakanda line the cliffs of Warrior Falls; each figure is adorned with deliberately chosen African clothing such as Basotho blankets and Maasai headdress.

“Carter has balanced traditionalism with cutting-edge fashion design”

To promote the MCU’s brand of superheroes, Carter balanced traditionalism with cutting-edge fashion design, such as 3D printing and interweaving of fictional vibranium metal in myriad costumes. One set that captures this is when a River Tribe elder (Isaach de Bankolé) wears a modern suit by Ghanaian-British designer Ozwald Boateng paired with an African lip plate. Balancing African tradition with current black tailoring, Carter’s costumes are essential in promoting the film’s message.

For Luis Buñuel’s 1967 film, beautiful day, the costumes help tell the story of a married young bourgeois woman, who spends her days as a high-class sex worker while her husband is at work. Catherine Deneuve, who plays Séverine Serizy, is dressed head to toe in Yves Saint Laurent, the couturier responsible for her entire wardrobe. Vogue described this film as “YSL’s most remarkable contribution to cinema”.

“The black vinyl trench coat has become a cult classic”VARSITY/DANIELLE JUMP

Adapted from Joseph Kessel’s 1928 novel, the costumes capture the duality of the character, at once prudish, erotic, seductive and alluring. The black vinyl trench coat has become a cult classic, making its way into mainstream fashion; you can still see it on the catwalks today. Even the shoes Deneuve wore for the film, which were part of YSL’s 1965 spring-summer collection, were eventually named after the film. Deneuve herself says it, “the character’s style really owes a lot to the image that Saint Laurent has created for itself”. However, perhaps it’s not just Séverine who should thank the Parisian designer, but fashion as we know it.

Take a Closer Look at Baz Luhrmann’s Reimagining of William Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet. You’ll notice that it’s not all gangsters and glitz running around beautiful Verona – well, Venice Beach – but there are some pretty ostentatious outfits too.

“There are also quite ostentatious outfits”

For that, we can thank Australian costume designer Kym Barrett, contemporary of Luhrmann’s wife and two-time Oscar-winning costume designer, Catherine Martin. Initially joining the couple as a wardrobe assistant at Luhrmann Ballroom strictly (1992), Barrett shared the director’s radical vision, as head of wardrobe, as they dared to tackle – or rather take over – Shakespeare’s classic romance. From the simple Hawaiian shirt worn by Romeo in the film’s opening scenes, to Tybalt adorned with devil horns at the Capulet ball. From Mercutio’s sparkling lingerie set to Juliette’s more modest angel wings. In collaboration with Prada, Yves Saint Laurent and Dolce & Gabbana, Barrett brings Luhrmann’s screenplay to life, marking his film not only in the history of cinema, but also in the history of fashion.

There’s one word that can describe Paul Tazewell’s designs in Spielberg’s remake of the 1961 classic: burst. The characters burst out of their costumes and the costumes burst from the screen. One would imagine that best dressed would be the character with the most obvious sex appeal, Anita, in her lemon dress trimmed with blood red ruffles. This outfit is present in the film’s most exuberant and carefree number, Americawhere Tazewell sneaked in a tribute to the past, with an all-dancer dressed in the famous lilac dress that Anita wore in 1961.

“The characters burst from their costumes and the costumes burst from the screen”VARSITY/DANIELLE JUMP

Respectful of history, it is not hampered by it. It confidently inverts the color palette that depicted gangs at war in 1961, yellow and purple. Now the latter wear rusty copper vests and are the first to walk the streets in a darker palette. Their muscles almost burst from the torn, oil-stained vests. It feels like youthful energy can explode out of these confines of fabric at any moment.

At first glance, it might seem like there’s not much to like about Ralph Egleston and Deanna Marsigliese’s costume designs for the 2004 and 2018 iterations of The Incredibles, at least beyond those amazing fitted suits (pun intended). Still, it’s no surprise that a movie starring a fashion designer as sassy as Edna Mode is full of fashion secrets. Did you know that Edna is based on the real life of Edith Head, eight-time Oscar winner for her styles of the 1950s? Egleston took inspiration from Head’s mid-century shapes by making the character pieces simple and elegant – you can almost smell Frozone’s smooth periwinkle turtleneck!

“Edna is an ode to fashion, the real heroine dressed to kill”

In animation, there is an unwritten rule that a character should not change their appearance too often, lest the changes break the audience’s suspension of disbelief. As a result, every costume has to pack a punch, and that couldn’t be more true than the gems of the movies: Edna’s outfits. She appears in a dripping satin kimono and a squeaky black beetle costume, among other things. Edna is an ode to fashion, the true heroine dressed to kill.

Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin strike gold again in this film adaptation of Gatsby the magnificent, again starring Leonardo DiCaprio, alongside Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and Joel Edgerton. Winner of an Academy Award for Best Costume Design, Martin owes many of his iconic outfits to Prada, Brooks Brothers and Tiffany & Co. These brands alone symbolize the glitz and glamor of the film and its era.

“Martin’s goal was to modernize and sexualize the Roaring Twenties”

From Gatsby’s pink suit to Daisy’s diamonds, suits are key to differentiating “old money” from new. Tom Buchanan (Edgerton) even snidely remarks that “the man in the pink suit went to Oxford”, indicating that an “Oxford man” would never wear such an untraditional ensemble. While costume historians argue over the lack of authenticity, Martin’s goal was to modernize and sexualize the Roaring Twenties and the characters who lived through them. The costumes perfectly complement the contemporary soundtrack, featuring Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful,” Beyonce’s haunting take on “Back to Black,” and the equally ethereal cover of Jack White’s “Love Is Blindness.”

Few films cover two distinct fashion decades; Back to the future is a rare find in this respect. When Marty McFly travels back in time from 1985 to 1955, he wears Nike sneakers, a red padded vest and a pair of Levi 501s, all under a yellow hazmat jumpsuit. Immediately he stands out, mistaken for a space invader when he first met him in the 1950s. When Marty’s mother, Lorraine, meets him, she still calls him Calvin because Calvin Klein is “written everywhere [his] underwear”.

The film’s climax occurs at the Enchantment Under the Sea school dance, where Marty’s parents have their first kiss. Lorraine wears a pastel pink strapless dress with a 1950s-style flared skirt, and George, Marty’s dad, wears an all-white suit with a black bow tie. Meanwhile, Marty dons a gray blazer and burgundy tie but accidentally exposes himself as an outsider while playing “Johnny B. Goode”. While Back to the future isn’t about fashion per se, costume plays a vital and often overlooked role in film’s successful portrayal of culture clash.

Epson participated in Sustainable Brands 2022, showcasing sustainability in fashion and apparel

Epson was part of the Sustainable Brands 2022 Yokohama (SB’22 Yokohama) event, which was a hybrid international conference held both online and at Pacifico Yokohama North last month, with Epson showcasing its efforts to improve sustainability in fashion and apparel industry.

SB’22 Yokohama was Epson’s fifth time at a sustainable brands conference.

Alongside the Yokohama event, SB’22 Asia-Pacific, the first such multilateral conference, was also held in Korea, Malaysia and Thailand.

These conferences offer participants the opportunity to highlight their efforts in terms of sustainable development with the aim of strengthening corporate recognition and promoting commitment.

Epson participated in three programs at SB’22 Yokohama.

1. Plenary Session (Plenary 1-5)

Epson’s Global President, Yasunori Ogawa, delivered a speech titled “Epson’s Sustainability Vision and Initiatives to Solve Societal Issues”. As part of this, he will highlight value propositions addressing societal issues and explain how Epson seeks to build co-creation relationships.

2. Breakout session (C1-3)

The panelists included a designer, a fashion coordinator, a garment production control system supplier, and representatives from Japan’s environment ministry, a printing company, and Epson, and discussed their various points. on the theme “The future of sustainable fashion using digital technologies”. .”

3. Activation Center

In the Activation Hub, Epson demonstrated its collaboration with Japanese designer Yuima Nakazato through a pop-up boutique exhibition that featured his latest sustainable fashion designs printed using Epson inkjets and boutique designs using projection technology to reduce environmental impact.

A streaming replay of the event is available from March 1 through March 31, but sadly, SB organizers unsustainably closed stream registration last month, which seems incredibly crazy in the modern world of streams, but that’s life.

Either way, with product and technology sustainability being a priority these days, Epson and many other companies are doing their part to ensure a sustainable future, showing that the evolution of technology is the only real response to sustainability issues, so that we can continue to live modern lives, rather than retreat to caves and reduce papyrus to paper.

Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2022 Street Style is full of high-profile inspirations

After spending three weeks perfecting their outfits in New York, London and Milan, the fashion crowd is ending things on a high in Paris. The French city marks the final leg of the fashion month tour de force. If you’re in the mood for new outfit ideas to kick-start your creativity, turn your attention to street style from Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2022. You’ll want to witness it all the iconic and candid style moments.

The PFW program began with Off-White’s tribute to Virgil Abloh – and all of your favorite models paraded on the catwalk. Next came presentations from Dior and Saint Laurent, where guests really stepped up their street style game. Rihanna wore a nude dress at Dior while other showgowers bundled up in leather and fur coats. The latter was a popular choice for those attending the Vaquera show. Many people have worked with pops of bright color, whether by way of a tart orange hat or a pair of green boots, in their attire.

90% plastic and 10% textile waste: Nigerian designer’s sustainable fashion impresses internet users

In a world where fast fashion is considered one of the biggest contributors to pollution, some designers are offering innovative solutions while mixing sustainability and fashion. Nigerian Adejoke Lasisi is one such designer.

Lasisi, who works for Planet 3R, a company that converts plastic waste into eco-friendly products, uses discarded plastic and textile waste to create a slew of fashionable products.

She collects the polyethylenes, plastic bottles and packaging, then dries them and throws them away. Lasisi masterfully weaves shredded plastic into traditional Yoruba cloth called aso oke as well as some textile waste. She then uses the newly made recycled fabric to make bags, clothes and other fashion accessories.

Speaking to Reuters, Lasisi said: “In the community where I live, I have come to realize that a lot of people are throwing away their trash, you know, to the point of burning it and that has negative impacts on our environment and our health. So I thought how can I take care of this waste with the skills that I had already learned from my mother, namely weaving skills, then I started to use the waste that was problematic in the community and I started creating opportunities from it in such a way that we are now creating products and at the same time creating opportunities for empowerment.

In recent years, Lasisi’s efforts have been recognized around the world and in 2020 she won the Africa Green Grant award. Many people have taken inspiration from his conservation initiatives as his efforts are shared on social media.

Inside a $12 Million French-Style Estate Outside Philadelphia – Robb Report

A French Norman-style estate on the outskirts of Philadelphia, once owned by heirs to the Campbell Soup fortune, has just had its price reduced by more than 50%, from $23.95 million to $11.75 million .

But don’t rush for your checkbook just yet. There’s a reason for this seemingly stunning price drop.

Linden Hill, a 20-minute drive from downtown Philadelphia in suburban Tony Gladwyne, was designed in the late 1920s by local architect Edmund Gilchrist for wealthy stockbroker Rodman Ellison Griscom. Built to look like a picture-perfect French village, it included a stately 20-room main mansion, a host of cottages, outbuildings and barns, and extensive grounds.

In the 1950s, the estate was sold to Campbell Soup chemist John T. Dorrance, best known for inventing the concept of condensing soup (which dramatically reduced transportation costs). In total, Dorrance and her family lived in Linden Hill for over half a century.

Fast forward to 1992, and Bob Burch, a prominent venture capitalist, entrepreneur and former brother-in-law of fashion designer Tory Burch, bought Linden Hill and, with his wife Susan, raised their five children on the estate.

Part of the estate’s considerable appeal, but also an apparent negative, was the fact that it was accompanied by 67 acres of lush, forested land. Maintenance proved to be a constant challenge. So in 2013, Burch decided to sell, putting the domain on the market for $24.5 million.

The property has two swimming pools.

Impressive features of the complex include a 14,467 square foot stone main house, turret gatehouse, various guest and staff houses, stables, 10 car garage, two swimming pools, tennis court and miles of horses. -equestrian and pedestrian trails.

But even with price cuts – at one point it was briefly offered for $19.5 million – finding a buyer proved elusive. Burch therefore proposed a series of creative alternatives which included dividing the estate into plots, or even converting it into a retirement home. All plans are said to have been shot down by local residents and area planning committees.

Now, after seven long years in and out of the market, it seems there is finally a solution for Linden Hill.

Burch, his lawyer and longtime realtor Lisa Yakulis of Kurfiss Sotheby’s International Realty are about to get approval to divide the 67 acres into five lots. This would include three new residential sites, each around 10 acres and priced at $3.6 million.

“We are really optimistic that this time our proposal will be approved. We even have one of the new lots under contract,” says Yakulis of Kurfiss Sotheby. Robb Report.

The best part of the proposal is that the original Linden Hill estate is now being offered intact with all of its buildings, but this time with approximately 31 (was 67) acres of land and a price tag of $11.75 million, or 51% less. .

“At this price, we think Linden Hill becomes extremely affordable and very attractive. There are much smaller, less architecturally and historically significant estates in the main line area of ​​Philadelphia that are priced about the same,” Yakulis adds.

The redesign of the estate won’t affect the original property in any way, she explains. The stately, straight, arrow-shaped driveway from cul-de-sac’d Monk Road in Gladwyne will still lead to the so-called farmyard, flanked by the charming turreted gatehouse and various outbuildings.

The driveway still continues through a narrow opening, flanked by tall chimney guesthouses, into the estate’s main courtyard with the imposing mansion straight ahead.

“The main house is just the most majestic example of French Norman-inspired design, built to breathtaking scale with magnificent symmetry. And it is unique in that the owners have preserved it perfectly. , restored and maintained,” says Yakulis.

Inside the main house there are eight bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, a living room with hand-carved paneled walls, a fully modernized kitchen, and an entry hall with a grand main staircase. For birdwatchers, a short walk from the house is a whimsical stone aviary with a turreted tiled roof and wrought iron cages on either side, one currently for the Burch family’s egg-laying hens, the other for peacocks and guinea fowl.

“Before Covid-19, potential buyers would look at all the different buildings and wonder why they would need all these rooms and all this space,” Yakulis says.

“Now with families working from home and older kids staying home longer, suddenly having all that private space is very appealing. The one thing Linden Hill offers in abundance is space” , she adds.
