‘Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color’ to Debut at the Museum at FIT This Fall

MORE THAN PRETTY IN PINK: The Museum at FIT will be giving visitors a lot to consider with this fall’s opening of “Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color.”
In what museum officials described as being called “the most divisive of colors,” the shade will be explored from the 18th century through today.
Many now associate the color with last year’s Women’s March, where thousands took to the streets wearing pink pussy hats. While that association might conjure up a feeling of empowerment for some, others link it to plastic dolls, young girls, ballerinas, princess costumes and ultra-femininity. The pink-for-girls and blue-for-boys stereotype settled into the American psyche in the mid-20th century. The premise of the show, which bows Sept. 7 and runs through Jan. 5, is to correct misconceptions and encourage attendees to question cliches. The whole experience is meant to be a reminder that, “’It is society that “makes” color, defines it, gives it meaning’ — to quote the great color historian Michel Pastoureau,” according to the show notes.
About 80 ensembles will be divided into two sections with the first area addressing the “Pretty in Pink” phenomena with 35 classic examples. To highlight the feminization of the color,

Isabel Marant’s Fall 2018 Campaign Is ‘So Isabel Marant It Hurts’

Our forum members practically begged Isabel Marant to switch up her casting last season after Anna Ewers appeared in her third consecutive campaign for the quintessential French fashion label. Marant must have heard our cries, adding model Vittoria Ceretti to star alongside Ewers for the Fall 2018 campaign (praise the fashion gods above). Welcoming back photographer Juergen Teller, the blonde and brunette twosome were photographed on location at the conceptual Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and styled by French Vogue‘s Geraldine Saglio.

Did the change in casting manage to impress our forum members, though? “Very simple and cool. It doesn’t look too Photoshopped. The models are cool, I like Anna and they look natural. I approve of this campaign,” shared Perickles upon checking out the images.

“It’s really nothing special but I appreciate the simplicity and it will look nice in magazines,” Valentine27 added.

“I like it just because it’s so Isabel Marant that it hurts! The girls and even the choice of location are totally Isabel Marant! This is exactly the type of place where you can imagine seeing an IM woman,” pointed out Lola701.

Not everyone was so forthcoming. “Great shots, boring cast,” snapped forum member anlabe32.

“The only shot I like is Vittoria’s. The rest are very dull,” disapproved bluebanter.

“For me, it’s the opposite, the only one I like is the second shot of Anna but I second you its pretty dull,” replied badgalcrush.

Zacatecas570 wasn’t exactly thrilled either. “I’ve never been the biggest Juergen Teller fan,” he said.

“Can’t stand Juergen’s photos anymore,” echoed thatsfierce.

Armani Privé Couture Fall 2018

It was 30 minutes (and 96 looks) in a 12-minute world, and worth every second of viewing.
On Tuesday evening in the gilded salons of the Italian Embassy, splendid in their intimacy, Giorgio Armani awed with his Armani Privé collection. It may have been his best ever. In his program notes, Armani said that he sought to capture “couture…as it once was: the authentic essence of luxury and perfection, the notion intended as instructional for “the young generation” and the style of presentation, “almost regal.”
If that sounds pedantic, it wasn’t at all. Rather, Armani presented an array of alluring, exquisitely crafted clothes that were elevated as befits the haute genre and diverse enough to satiate the desires of a broad range of couture clients.
Of course, Armani focused on high evening. He pioneered the red carpet phenomenon as it exists today, and time and again he uses his Privé runway to remind that he’s not seceding a smidgen of his hard-earned turf to anyone. But first the daywear — lovely! And utterly controlled: sensible shoulder options on smart, shapely jackets; pants sans tricks (and mostly pants for day); the occasional well-placed flourish in a contrasting collar or graphic piping on a sleeve.

Say What Now? Would-Be Robber Fall Throughs Convenience Store Ceiling, Gets Caught [Video]

Just because you may have seen something in an action movie, doesn’t always mean the same will work in real life.

Two would-be robbers found out the hard way.

via TMZ:

Where: Alberta, Canada
When: Earlier this week
Why: Two robbery suspects — a man and a woman — at a convenience store were attempting to flee from a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer.

Long story short … the cop busts out his taser to take down the guy. Meanwhile, his female friend tries to make a clean escape by running into the stockroom and climbing through the ceiling — y’know, ‘Mission: Impossible’ style. She almost made it. Almost.

This entire caper was captured by the store’s surveillance cameras. Thank God.

Edie Campbell and Liya Kebede Come Together for Alberta Ferretti’s Fall 2018 Campaign

Alberta Ferretti likes to keep us guessing when it comes to its advertising campaigns, never settling for a tried and tested formula. The Italian fashion label brought on photographer Steven Meisel for the Spring 2017 campaign, Tim Walker for Fall 2017 and Mario Sorrenti for Spring 2018. This season, it’s David Sims capturing the brand’s Fall 2018 campaign in his London studio with Vogue Paris fashion director Aleksandra Woroniecka on styling duties (replacing Carine Roitfeld). Gone is last season’s cast too, in favor of models Edie Campbell and Liya Kebede, starring in the dark and moody series of images.

Members of our forums were quick to sound off on the campaign. “Not surprised it looks so Vogue Paris since Aleksandra Woroniecka is fashion director at VP! I guess she brings some easiness and a sense of effortless French style to the brand. I like it,” approved elle_gb.

“I love it, very Vogue Paris,” echoed GERGIN.

“Reminds me way too much of VP, but Liya’s shot looks great,” Benn98 noted.

“Don’t know why but it’s giving me Isabel Marant vibes,” pointed out 333101. “But I’m pleased Liya is part of the cast!”

Forum member vetements also saw some hints of Isabel Marant. “Alberta Ferretti to me is just another pretty clothing brand that is wearable but this campaign is shot so beautifully it actually made me took notice, guess that’s how a successful campaign should be. It also gave me Isabel Marant vibes, I think probably those knee-high boots,” he said.

Perickles also showed Liya some love, writing, “Very nice! I love Liya Kebede’s shots, they look so retro and chic at the same time. Her hair and dark eyes are very intense.”

“Love Liya’s shot,” raved LustforFashion.

The Fashion Exchange to Stage Exhibition at FIT’s New Exhibition Space This Fall

EVERLASTING FASHION: After a successful debut exhibition in London earlier this year, The Commonwealth Fashion Exchange, a major project that teams fashion design talent with artisans from across the Commonwealth’s 53 countries, is planning a New York installation.
In September, fashion pieces made through the initiative will be shown at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. The show will be staged in a new yet-to-be-named exhibition on the New York campus’ John P. Pomerantz Art and Design Center. Renovations are under way in the building’s lobby, which will double the exhibition space to 4,000 square feet.
This fall’s event, which is designed to encourage the exchange of creative ideas, will be scheduled during United Nations General Assembly is in session. In London, the CFE exhibition bowed in late February as a lead-up to the 25th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, which was held in April. During London Fashion Week in February, a celebratory reception was held at Buckingham Palace, where the Duchess of Cambridge helped to mark the occasion.

CBS Fall Lineup Heads Back to the ’80s with ‘Murphy Brown’ and ‘Magnum P.I.’

CBS is going back in time this fall with the return of Murphy Brown and Magnum P.I., two of the six new shows added to the network’s lineup.

Suicide Squad‘s Jay Hernandez will be taking over the role made famous by Tom Selleck in the Magnum P.I. reboot, which tells the story of a former Navy SEAL who uses his military training to become a private investigator.


Magnum P.I.
Jay Hernandez in the 'Magnum P.I.' reboot

Meanwhile, Candace Bergen will be returning to the titular role in Murphy Brown 20 years after the series ended its 10-year, Emmy-winning run. But things are very different for the broadcast news legend this time around, having to deal with a journalism world of “fake news” and 24-hour cable.

Murphy Brown will be joining Chuck Lorre comedies The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, and Mom on Thursday nights, while the reboot of Magnum P.I. will air on Mondays. That means the Monday night comedy block that used to be two-hours long at CBS will now be one and include two new sitcoms, The Neighborhood and Happy Together.

The latter stars Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West as a married couple who reconnect with their youth when they let a pop star obsessed with their ordinary suburban life move in with them.

The Neighborhood follows the story of a man who moves his family from the Midwest to a neighborhood in Los Angeles where suddenly not everyone looks the same. While he remains unphased by the new diversity in his life, his opinionated next-door neighbor Calvin, played by Cedric the Entertainer, is worried the family will mess up the culture on their street.

The final new shows that made the cut for the fall lineup are dramas FBI and God Friended Me. And that last one is actually exactly what it sounds like — an atheist accepts a friend request from God on Facebook and begins unintentionally helping others in need because of it. CBS explained it has similarities to Touched by an Angel, but in a more contemporary setting.

And from the team responsible for the Law & Order franchise, FBI is a drama about the members of New York’s Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Two other new dramas, The Code and The Red Line, and new comedy Fam will be held for midseason, along with returning shows Instinct, Elementary, Man with a Plan, and Life.

Check out the full CBS fall lineup with the schedule below.

There were sheer organza “jean” jacket tops and blazers and organza details on jeans, an oversize crushed velvet jacket and pants, and a minimalist ribbed cashmere slipdress. As for the actual jeans, they came high-waisted and skinny with button flies and pockets, in holographic silver and a style that zipped up the front of the leg from ankle to waist. To play up the brand’s Los Angeles roots, the look book was shot at Chateau Marmont on Jacquelyn Jablonski, styled with combat boots to emphasize the Nineties-ness of it all.

Tory Sport Fall 2018

Tory Burch focused much of her fall Tory Sport collection on the off-duty moments of life, whether going to and from the gym or the field, to travel to the weekend. “We spent so much time thinking about the seamlessness of someone’s life,” Burch said during a preview. “How do we design things that aren’t so obviously sport but are superfunctional and have the properties an athlete needs, but is also how I’m dressing and others are dressing on the weekend.” That meant a big focus on outerwear with down puffers and parkas in oversize and small and proportions. Some of the coats had positive messaging — “Get to the gym” — sewn into the linings. Running gear came in graphic multicolored checks. Tracksuits were elevated enough to wear to the office and comfortable enough for a warm-up. There were chunky hand-knit ski sweaters, seamless sports bras and leggings, Coolmax cashmere sweatpants and a wrap skirt to make one’s ath-leisurewear a little less dressed-down. There’s a new performance sock sneaker, and Burch continues to up the ante on her golf and tennis gear, infusing the fabrics with sun protection.

TTT_MSW RTW Fall 2018

Name: TTT_MSW
Main message: With his brand’s first runway show, 24-year-old designer Shota Tamada brought something that is often lacking from Tokyo fashion week: a youthful energy. Supported by Amazon Fashion’s At Tokyo program, the show re-created a car crash scene, complete with dead grass and leaves, a broken-down car and an artificial rainstorm in the center of the circular runway. Tamada said his theme for the season was “mafia,” and his motley crew of gang members emerged from the backseat of the car before walking the runway in a mix of cargo pants, faux fur coats, velour track jackets, suits, satin shirts and leather-like bomber jackets.
The result: Tamada’s collection lacked originality in terms of design and silhouettes, but employed an interesting use of color and, at times, texture.

While much of the collection was done in black, the darkness was punctuated by pops of bright orange, deep purple, royal blue, baby pink and a black-and-white graffiti print.
The result: While it may have reflected actual trends in street fashion, the collection had little originality and gave customers no real reason to buy the pieces from Paradox rather than one of the many other brands producing similar styles.

Name: Muze
Main message: Following in the footsteps of designers such as Jeremy Scott and Vetements, Masatoshi Ishida and Hiroshi Shibahara made an attempt to mix the commercial with the creative by splashing the logo of a non-fashion company across their clothes. They chose Calorie Mate, a brand of energy bars and gel drinks that is a mainstay in nearly every Japanese convenience store. The logo appeared on the sleeves of a moto jacket, across the bottom of a shirt, and on hoodies, jackets, asymmetric hemmed skirts and dresses. They also showed more simple, outdoorsy pieces in solid colors, such as a turquoise blue windbreaker and black or cream jackets in a combination of nylon and plush fabrics.
The result: The Calorie Mate pieces didn’t always hit the right tone of irony and many looked like simple advertisements, but they at least were more interesting than the rest of the collection.

Saint Laurent Taps Kaia Gerber for Fall Campaign

POCKET VENUS: Saint Laurent has tapped model-of-the-moment Kaia Gerber to feature in its fall ads.
The French fashion house on Thursday released four black-and-white images and a video, which show the 16-year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford looking sultry in a deeply unbuttoned black blouse and a cream Mongolian fur coat, against the backdrop of The Velvet Underground’s “Venus in Furs.”
In only her second season on the catwalk, Gerber ruled the Saint Laurent runway in February, appearing in three looks, including a black mini dress with a sculptural asymmetric ruffle and a floral embroidered dress with a ruched skirt.
This was the second batch of images linked to creative director Anthony Vaccarello’s fall campaign. The first, released last month only two weeks after the show, featured longtime Saint Laurent muse Betty Catroux shot by David Sims, in what was billed as her first advertising campaign.
Saint Laurent previously tapped for its spring campaign an eclectic cast of characters, which featured Kate Moss, Zoë Kravitz, Vincent Gallo and Laetitia Casta.

Hyke RTW Fall 2018

Many Tokyo brands have become known for their bright colors, extreme detailing and outlandish designs. Hyke isn’t one of them. Designed by the duo of Yukiko Ode and Hideaki Yoshihara, it specializes in meticulously constructed basics with subtle modern twists, created from some of the best textiles available.
This season Ode and Yoshihara chose to reimagine classic military styles, with a particular focus on outerwear. They updated bomber jackets in oversized shapes, with fur trim or in shearling turned inside out to show the fluffy ivory fleece. But the real stars of the collection were the gorgeous coats. From the most luxurious-looking melton wool were crafted peacoats, toggle coats, double-breasted coats and belted coats. The silhouettes were oversized, with sleeves in particular often extralong and puffy.
Worn under the outerwear were slim leather pants bunched at the ankles, pleated skirts with overlays in suiting fabric, houndstooth suit jackets, thigh-high shearling leggings, rib knit tunics and simple sleeveless dresses slit up to the navel in front. Everything was done in shades of navy, gray, olive, khaki and ivory, save for two bright orange puffy jackets, which resembled flight jackets turned inside out.
Hyke also showed items from its second season collaborating with The North

Mistergentleman Men’s Fall 2018

After a two-year hiatus, Takeshi Osumi and Yuichi Yoshii returned to Tokyo’s fashion week with an effortlessly cool offering that mixed dandy with outdoorsy and streetwear with tailoring. A teal blue velour suit was worn with a funnel-neck shirt and sneakers, while a plush fleece pullover topped slick patent pants in pale pink.
In what was perhaps an acknowledgement of the fact that they already have some female customers, the designers also played with traditional gender norms, sending one woman down the runway and incorporating details normally only seen in women’s collections. Shirts and a trenchcoat that seemed relatively pedestrian from the front — aside from the fact that they had no openings — were shown to be completely backless. And card holder-sized patent leather pouches were worn as tiny, colorful cross-body bags.
Osumi and Yoshii, who style their collections themselves, are known for their clever layering, but this time they often did it in a single piece. Puffer jackets had a second, cropped layer on top, while cargo pocket arm bands and half vests were attached to sweatshirts and coats. Some suit jackets and down coats had exaggerated kangaroo pockets at the front.

While the majority of the collection was turned out in black, white or deep shades of green and burgundy, a few looks in the middle had an almost summery feel in pastels or yellow and blue checks. 
The result: While the silhouettes consisted of classic shapes and Matsui didn’t do much to put his own spin on them, it was a solid showing from a brand that hasn’t staged a runway show in over four years.

These books will make you fall in love with traveling

ADVERTISEMENT

Sometimes we have that itch to do something crazy, to just up and leave and go somewhere. But who can do that? We all have responsibilities, we are all tied down by something or someone. So what is the next best thing? Maybe reading some of the world’s most famous travelogues. Your friends may be happy that you are sitting at home reading instead of leaving them, but maybe these books will inspire you to get up and go see whats out there.

In Patagonia

This book was written by Bruce Chatwin, a reporter for the British magazine The Sunday Times. He had always wanted to go to Patagonia in Argentina as a child due to some mysterious artifacts a relative brought home as a child, but had always put off the trip. One day, while he was in Paris, he was interviewing a woman who had a giant map of Patagonia on the wall. After saying he had always wanted to go there, the woman said “me too. Go for me.”

He then up and left and spent six months traveling around the enormous region, interviewing anyone and everyone he ran into. This book was written by him and details his incredible travels.

Travels with Charley

John Steinbeck wrote this epic travelogue near the end of his life. He had been writing Americana fiction and about Americans for most of his career, but by the time he was 58 he had already been living in europe for almost 20 years, and had been living in New York City for even longer. He felt New York was a bubble separated from the rest of the country, and he decided to see the US for himself.

So he took his dog, bought a camper, and went on a 10,000 mile road trip across all of the United States. This book details how he re-discovered America and how he got back in touch with the American people.

Arabian Sands

This travelogue was written in 1959 by a British officer who was responsible for researching how to get rid of locusts in the Arabian desert. The officer, named Wilfred Thesiger, travelled around Ethiopia and Sudan as well as going all around the Arabian Peninsula.

One of the most impressive parts of the book is when he becomes one of the first ever westerners to go through the empty quarter of the Arabian desert – an area with no life or water whatsoever. This book will definitely make you want to learn more about the Middle East.

The Broken Road

Set in the 1930’s before World War Two and the Cold War, this amazing travelogue details British traveller and author Patrick Leigh Fermor as he travels across Europe. However, it isn’t just the fact that he went all the way across Europe, but how he did it which is incredible.
Starting in Hook of Holland in The Netherlands, Fermor walked, on foot, all the way across Europe to what is now known as Istanbul in Turkey. He travelled through nearly every country on the continent, crossed almost all of the major rivers there, and saw and met extremely interesting people. In fact, there are people today who try to recreate his journey.

It was a mishmash of statement outerwear — faux furs, tailored plaids, workwear denim and short puffers — layered over sweatshirts, trackpants, long skirts, cropped and distressed denim and dorky socks and trainers. Topping things off were sweatshirts and giant scarves printed with broadly positive, feminist messaging (“Women;” “Love”).

Digawel RTW Fall 2018

Name: Digawel
Main message: One of the winners of the 2018 Tokyo Fashion Award, Kohei Nishimura has been quietly building a fan base for his designs for over a decade, and participated in Tokyo Fashion Week for the first time this season. While he designs for both men and women, his pieces have a unisex quality. He used suiting fabrics for relaxed and casual trousers, pullovers and anoraks, while turning out easy suits from softer fabrics such as velour. Cozy, long sweaters and long scarves rounded out the offering.
The result: Nishimura proved himself to be deserving of his award with a tight, collection of easy pieces that mix and match together across colors, textures and genders.

Mint Designs RTW Fall 2018

Name: Mint Designs
Main message: Held in Tokyo’s Fred Perry store and serving a dual purpose as the launch of the two brands’ latest collaboration, this show had models descending dramatically down three flights of stairs while wearing patent leather boots with stilettos so high they could barely walk. Impractical footwear aside, Hokuto Katsui and Nao Yagi’s collection consisted of loose, comfortable dresses, skirts, pullovers and blouses in mixed prints and solid shades of pale aqua, red, green, yellow, purple, camel and gray. A coat that looked like it had been turned inside out, with its puffy, newspaper print lining on the outside was a standout piece.
The result: The designers are adept at mixing colors, prints and textures, and at making easy-fitting pieces look chic and stylish. While not as playful as some of their past collections, it was a solid, cohesive offering.

All were turned out in a mix of groovy prints including checkerboards, wavy stripes, zigzags, Seventies florals and polka dots, punctuated with solid shades of burnt orange, wine red, olive, khaki and purple. Accessories included thigh-high boots, fanny packs and drawstring handbags. Despite the energy of the show, it was a disappointing use of the roller rink venue, with not a single pair of skates in sight.
The result: The collection was fun and cohesive, if not particularly risky, and despite the retro theme, casual styling brought it firmly into the present.

Why Fall is the Best Time of Year to Repair or Replace Your Roof

Professional roofers don’t always see eye to eye. But one thing they all almost agree on is that fall is the best time for homeowners to address problems with their roofs. The agreeable weather makes autumn the perfect time for roofing projects, and not just because it’s finally pleasant enough to be outside!

Fall roofing lets you weatherproof your home—just in time for winter temperatures. And re-roofing now guarantees you’ll get a good seal on your roof before the nasty weather strikes. Have you ever asked yourself do roofers work in the rain? Find out here.

Need even more convincing? Here are five reasons an autumn roof replacement makes sense.

Laying shingles

Say Sayonara to Summer Damage

Rain, wind, and hail from summer thunderstorms can do a number on your roof, especially rain on an unfinished roof. An autumn repair offers the chance to fix that damage—before winter weather sets in.

Take Care of Leaks Before Winter

Even if you had a mild summer, it’s a good idea to take care of roof replacements before winter strikes. Winter can be tough on roofs, too. Ventilation issues cause ice dams to form, which puts a lot of pressure on your roof’s structure. Snow and ice on the surface can worsen small leaks and holes. It’s best to get it taken care of now while you have the chance!

Give Shingles a Chance to Seal

Getting new asphalt shingles? Better have them installed in the fall. Shingles need time to seal, which is what creates an airtight barrier against rain and wind. Shingles have a strip of adherent on them known as a seal strip. Seal strips melt in warm, ambient weather, forming that oh-so-vital seal. Again, replacing in fall gives the seal time to form before you get hit with a bunch of wind and ice.

It’s Easier to Nail Shingles

Shingles are sort of like you and me: they become brittle in sub-freezing temperatures. In fact, most manufacturers recommend temperatures above 26 degrees Fahrenheit for shingle installations. That way, they won’t break apart when your roofer nails them in.

Winter Is Coming—And So Are High Energy Bills

Winter electricity and gas bills can be a bear, especially if you have an aging roof on your home. Luckily, today’s materials are a lot more energy-efficient. And if you pair your installation with attic insulation projects like blown insulation or air sealing, you can reap some serious savings. The Department of Energy estimates that you could save up to 15% on your yearly heating and cooling costs, in fact. Not bad!

Looking to Save? Install in the Off-Season

Some experts say that budget-conscious homeowners should wait until summer or winter to install their roofs. Roofers consider this the off-season, so roof replacement costs may be cheaper then, since roofers are desperate for a sale.

It sort of works on a roofer-to-roofer basis, though. Some do indeed offer significant discounts—we’re talking up to 25% off—for off-season installs. On the other hand, some don’t, so you’re taking your chances if you wait. Whatever you do, though, don’t sit out a whole autumn with a leaky roof waiting for better prices. You’ll only cost yourself more in the long run!

AG RTW Fall 2018

Building off the ideology of being more than a denim brand, AG has recently honed in on the expansion of wardrobe staples with reinterpreted classics. Across men’s and women’s, there was a clear workwear and utilitarian bent – a shirtdress with drawstring waist, a mechanic suit with feminine pleating, or a new “Ridge” jean for men based on traditional carpenter pants fully equipped with hammer loop and multiple pockets. The range was youthful and fun and played to the idea of cross-gender styling, where roomy turtlenecks and shirting with either oversized pockets or slightly asymmetric construction could easily be shared between men or women. Even the new “Kieran” style for women, with volume around the hip, tapered construction and slight crop, seemed appropriate for anyone. There were a few pieces strictly for each, though, as in a streamlined jumpsuit for her with wrap-front pleats at the leg that could work equally well with heels at the office or sneakers on the weekend.

Cacharel RTW Fall 2018

Designers at Cacharel trotted out a breezy lineup of floral prints for fall, in all shapes and sizes, employing them in a mission to appeal to a younger crowd.
A sleek, leather coat with wide sleeves carried a butterfly wing on one side, while chunky knit sweaters had a bright pansy on a shoulder. Small pansies formed a pattern for a blouse, gloves and a jacket. The logo was another feature, appearing larger and thus a bit louder on a blue blouse, in white lettering.
Highlighting accessories, the brand also introduced a new felt cap, fashioned after a riding helmet. The season reflected the house’s efforts to reposition itself. Executives at the label declined to reveal the identity of the design team, but said the brand has been increasing the amount of business it generates outside France.

Situationist RTW Fall 2018

Irakli Rusadze offered a sleek lineup of original and sophisticated silhouettes for fall. Presenting in the Palais de Tokyo contemporary art museum, the designer showed his clothing against a backdrop of artwork from fellow Georgians of his generation, including gender-bending portraits and protest graffiti.
But that’s where the youthful ingenuity ended: Rusadze’s collection was a mature exhibit of highly skilled tailoring. Eye-catching leather pieces included a round-shouldered coat in a reddish brown, paired with trim trousers. Men were dressed in military-style suits, with wide shoulders and a cropped waist.
Also displayed was a rack of pieces made from the same white cloth, the better to emphasize the shapes of the clothing. Rusadze only works with all natural materials such as cotton, wool and leather; transferred to these rich fabrics, the clothing rose to a new level.

The fall collection was a What Would Phoebe Do special designed by her team, which broke down into highly commercial pieces that could have been left over from last spring. An ivory knit dress was gathered into bunches fastened with what looked like big bangles in ribbed white resin and gold. Scarf dresses with abstract prints were draped and tied into loose knots around the body, forming a pretty schmatta silhouette. A burgundy leather coat had a weird cape top and there were witchy-chic boots and versions of earthy-glam jewelry that’s in Céline stores now. Philo’s devotees have one more season to get her look, but she took her fairy dust with her.

Masha Ma RTW Fall 2018

Masha Ma tends to be assertive in her futuristic approach, and this season was no exception. For her namesake label, the Chinese designer trained her sights on outerwear and offered a sturdy lineup of puffer jackets in all the latest technical fabrics. All shapes and sizes, too — cropped, cinched, slouchy, hooded— you name it. She is also creative director of the Chinese market for the high end brand Kolon Sports, which targets 25- to 35-year-olds.
Everyone’s doing puffer coats these days, but hers stood out, both aesthetically and technically: with Gore-tex galore, a heat pad patch that raises the body temperature and a shimmery black material with an iridescent rainbow sheen. They looked capable of withstanding major atmospheric drama. Intellectual inspiration was Satoshi Kon’s animated film “Perfect Blue,” a harrowing psychological thriller that deals with split personalities.
For the softer side, there were lavender and lots of white, skirt hemlines dropped lower this season and the tailoring felt looser; Ma turned down the punk vibes a notch.
She also sent out large bags in the puffer jacket material.
“I want it to be easy on the street that you can chuck everything inside,” she explained after the show.

Graco recalls 36,000 high chairs for potential fall hazard

by

Michelle Stein

posted in Products

On March 2, Graco announced a recall of roughly 36,000 high chairs (along with 3,200 sold in Canada) because of a potential fall hazard. This recall involves Graco Table2Table 6-in-1 highchairs, models which are sold exclusively at Walmart, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC.)

Apparently the highchair’s rear legs can pivot out of position, causing the chair to become unstable — which in turn poses a fall hazard to a child in the highchair. In fact, a total of 38 reports of the rear leg doing just this have been received by Graco so far. This includes five injuries to children who sustained bumps and bruises because the high chair fell over while they were in it.

Product description

This recall involves Graco Table2Table™ 6-in-1 highchairs with model number 1969721. Affected models were sold for about $ 100 between October 2016 and December 2017 at Walmart stores across the nation. This 6-in-1 highchair converts to six different modes, including a traditional highchair, a booster seat and toddler chair and table. The highchair’s cushion is white with gold and gray polka dots. The model number is printed on a label on the underside of the toddler seat and on a label on the back of the booster seat. Graco and Table2Table highchair are also printed on the label on the underside of the toddler seat.

What you should do

To double-check if your high chair is included in this recall, you can visit Graco’s website and enter the model number and manufacturing date here. If you do have an affected high chair, you should immediately stop using it and contact Graco for a free repair kit. For questions or to request a repair kit, contact Graco at 1-800-345-4109 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday, or email gracoconsumercare@newellco.com.

“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience our consumers may have experienced and we appreciate the loyalty of our consumers,” Graco said in a statement on its website.

What do you think of this recall? Do you own one of these highchairs?

Karl Lagerfeld RTW Fall 2018

When a brand is this closely identified with its founder, even a change of facial hair has commercial implications. Karl Lagerfeld’s new beard has his team mulling whether to tweak the Lagerfeld caricature that pops up on everything from handbags to iPad cases.
His main collection is immune from such risks. Ranging from strict tailoring to logo-heavy ath-leisure, the fall line drew inspiration from architecture, with references ranging from Art Deco to Zaha Hadid. A black cape coat featured a stitched satin lapel, while the seams of a LBD recalled perspective lines.
Lagerfeld’s name was writ large on everything from sweatshirts with elbow splits to a cheerleader top with a matching skirt, and appeared as a ticker tape motif on jeans and handbags. Also dropping next fall: Lagerfeld’s collaboration with Kaia Gerber, with a West Coast-meets-Left Bank sensibility.
The designer is famed for his ability to take on the personality of the brands for which he designs, whether that’s Chanel and Fendi now, or Chloé in the Eighties. But at the house of Lagerfeld, it’s rightly all about Karl.

Versace RTW Fall 2018

“The Clans of Versace” – Donatella Versace’s fall collection was, according to the opening quote of her show notes, an ode to women who “know that today nothing is acquired through birth, but rather earned through what they achieve.”
A lovely thought, and powerful, but complicated to express via clothes on a runway — even if you hadn’t cast Kaia Gerber. No knock on Kaia. She’s a beautiful girl who, in a short time, has become a very good model. But one would be hard-pressed to miss the irony between the show’s stated platform and Kaia’s casting.
Such is the dilemma of deep-thoughts messaging on the runway: Little details can prove awkward. Happily, not so the clothes themselves in Versace’s follow-up to last season’s supermodel scarf-print spectacular. On Friday night, Versace showed a flamboyant, feisty collection, her “clans” construct imposing unity on several disparate ideas. She baited the youth vote with timed-honored tartans, her take descended as much from Vivienne Westwood’s Worlds End as the Highlands: varsity mufflers, sweaters and kilts, all wantonly mismatched and pieced together in pretty-in-punk pilings. For evening, these morphed into a black bustier over logo T and zany, pouffed-out skirt – a delightful take on bad-girl glam.

Moncler Genius RTW Fall 2018

“A Republic of imagination” is how Moncler described its new Moncler Genius project, which the company unveiled with a special event opening Milan Fashion Week on Tuesday.
To be sure, imagination and creativity stood out throughout the installation, which featured a building with seven cells, each of them housing one of the seven collections that Moncler will launch over the next few months with special drops. At the entrance of the space two imaginative museum bookshops displayed the lineup that was developed by Francesco Ragazzi, creative director of Palm Angels, and the eighth brand involved in the Genius project.
Lights were projected on the silver tarps covering the cells, featuring arch entrances giving access to the eight different microcosms. Reflecting the specific identity of each collection, the cells were all decorated with customized installations.
For example, Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli embellished his cell with works by artist Sidival Fila, which were deeply linked with the sense of purity infused in his Moncler Pierpaolo Piccioli collection. “I wanted to focus on authenticity and the essentials,” the designer said. “That’s the reason why I used the most basic nylon, which I crafted for the silhouettes I like, inspired by Piero della Francesca and Beato

Maki Oh RTW Fall 2018

Designer Amaka Osakwe took a playful jab at the press’ capacity for error in her fall collection. After a feature came out that made the brand seem lingerie-focused, Osakwe began playing around with ideas of how she would actually make bedroom clothing in a Maki Oh way. It’s not a far cry from the narrative she usually crafts for her girl; last year, it was tailored around what she would wear heading to a late-night casual encounter.
Her watchwords this time were “lazy sensual.” It described the inherent sexiness of a sheer white lace dress and metallic cami top, but was just as applicable to the languid pants and mixed print dresses that revealed bits of skin. These fluid dresses felt more in step with the colorful pattern play Osakwe offers, though in a quieter palette.
In fact, some of the strongest pieces drew from tailoring and what her girl is wearing coming home from work. There were slight subversions that provided special elevations, like a plaid blazer with a sleeve cut in a different fabric or a tailored black coat with a single sleeve that opened with a ruffle. Even with the center around sensuality, the ease surrounding these

“I didn’t get a dress until this morning! It was still on a machine,” Claudia Li exclaimed while noting how stressful putting together her fall presentation had been. Thankfully the dress in question — made of burnt orange sequins with contrasting graphic black lines — made it and was a clear bright spot in the lineup.
The designer has felt the weight of a gloomy social landscape this past year and wanted to put out a message of hope, which she did charmingly. There were vibrant pops of hot pink and cactus green balanced with cheerful prints and an aesthetic attitude that was more confident and elevated.
While researching stories about silence, Li came across Turkish fairy-tale, “The Silent Princess,” in which a cursed prince, even on the brink of death, finds the will to carry on. It was a potent message of resilience. “I felt like there is hope. You need to keep going and be determined. It’s about endurance.”
Season to season, Li displays a more mature hand. Indeed, this range felt more rounded out and approachable, with different brand “isms” like structure and playfulness applied in more minimal ways. Her penchant for volume was seen as exaggerated collars on

Tom Ford Fall RTW 2018

Pussy Power. The catchy alliteration appeared in bold lettering on two handbags and a pair of shoes at Tom Ford’s show on Thursday night. One couldn’t miss the unsubtle messaging — political and sexual, with a dollop of knowing vulgarity. But then, Ford has never been one to hedge.
His second show in two days, his women’s outing on Thursday night utilized the same theater he installed in the Park Avenue Armory and first used for men’s on Tuesday, its sophisticated gray providing a calm counterpoint to his frenetically exuberant clothes. Recently repatriated to Los Angeles, Ford is obsessed with the place. It has impacted his work profoundly, even if the clothes sizzle with an intensity to match that of his Gucci Girl, back when. Twenty or so years later, in these more evolved times, the word “girl” is verboten in reference to anyone eligible to vote. Ford calls his new runway archetype his California Baby.
Oh, but she’s no babe in the West Coast woods. She’s allergic to subtlety, with confidence through the roof (long-standing hallmarks of Ford’s woman), a dose of eccentricity and a sense of humor. To that end, Ford co-opted the logo of that onetime bastion of Los

Tiger of Sweden Men’s RTW Fall 2018

For his first outing as creative director of Tiger of Sweden, Christoffer Lundman was looking for an effortless feel, and sent out a classic and tailored collection.
Lundman said he wanted to tell a story about creativity and the brand’s heritage and referenced Stockholm’s Filmhuset — a building designed by Harry Schein and Peter Celsing and home of the Swedish Film Institute — and its founder Schein.
Taking the “special energy” of the historical venue, Lundman created a story focused on the building, and created characters that harked back to the golden era of Swedish film.
“I wanted to reshift the focus and start telling a story of what we’re really good at, which is tailoring,” said Lundman. “This year marks 115 years. We have an amazing heritage and I wanted to lift that to the forefront. We spent a lot of time on fabric development because we worked with very few colors, and the fabrics were super-important because I felt that they could create life on the rails without any sort of pop colors.”

John Varvatos Men’s Fall 2018

John Varvatos went “rogue” for his fall show, eschewing the official fashion calendar to present on the eve of Grammys weekend in New York.
He selected an old synagogue on the Lower East Side and filled the front row with musicians and executives in town for the big event at Madison Square Garden: all three Jonas brothers, Thomas Rhett, Young Paris and Iggy Azalea among them.
It was ironic then that this season, Varvatos showed less of a rock ’n’ roll aesthetic than in the past. “I never think of us as rock ’n’ roll,” the designer said backstage before the show. “That’s other people’s perception. But it does have an edge to it.”
Instead, the designer set out to “change it up,” with a show he titled “John Varvatos 2.0” that “explored the notion of looking back to look forward,” according to the show notes.
He turned to his greatest hits over the past 17 years — textured fabrics, handknit sweaters, hand-finished leathers and pumped-up trainers — modernized in terms of silhouette and materials — to offer his take on the street “and how we’re living today.”
Despite the slightly oversized proportions, the collection was not streetwear — intentionally. “I appreciate streetwear but I’m

Mark E. Smith Dead: The Fall Lead Singer Dies at 60

The lead singer of the English post-punk band The Fall, Mark E. Smith, died on Wednesday, January 24. He was 60. 

The Fall’s manager Pam Van Damned released a statement to announce Smith’s passing via Cherry Red Records.

“It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Mark E. Smith. He passed this morning at home,” the statement reads. “A more detailed statement will follow in the next few days. In the meantime, Pam & Mark’s family request privacy at this sad time.” 

The late singer formed The Fall in 1976 with original members Martin Bramah, Una Baines and Tony Friel. Smith was the only founding member to stick with the group and released more than 30 albums with the band.

Smith’s former bandmate Marc Riley, who was in The Fall from 1978 to 1983, spoke about his passing on BBC 6 Music.

“[Smith] taught me a lot about life and he taught me a lot about music,” Riley said on Wednesday. The news broke when he was on air. “Aged 16 he really did teach me so much … The Fall were my favorite band when I joined and they were still my favorite band when I got kicked out.”

Smith’s ex-wife Brix Smith Start took to Twitter to react to the news. ”I’m taking the news in right now. I will put a statement out tomorrow. I hope you will all understand. Thank you for your lovely messages, they mean a lot. I love you, Brix,” she captioned a photo of with Smith. 

Smith was also married to Saffron Prior from 1991 to 1995. He is survived by wife Elenor Smith. The pair tied the knot in 2001.
