Dsquared2 Men’s Fall 2019

In the Instagram era, experiences are becoming key to making a difference in the real, physical environment. While images and videos available on smartphones can help a brand spread its message, a proper event can guarantee guests will go back to their homes with special memories and emotions. This is what Dean and Dan Caten must have thought when they conceived the format of their fall runway show, with guests standing by the catwalk as at a music concert and bars serving drinks. And, indeed, the music was great — a mix of pop, dance and Madonna’s iconic songs. The thing is, people weren’t there for the soundtrack or the drinks. They were supposed to be there to see the clothes. Even if Dsquared2’s intentions were noble — offering a fun, entertaining and unconventional experience during fashion week — the result missed the mark, with several editors leaving before the end of the show because they couldn’t see a thing.
Those who managed to sneak in through the crowd witnessed a pop, rock ‘n’ roll, grungy, disco extravaganza. After presenting a pre-fall collection focused on chic, wearable pieces, the Caten brothers used their fall coed runway to send out a clear

Front Row at Prada Men’s Fall 2019

PRADA’S BRITS: British actor Callum Turner took in his first Prada show, although he said he had been to Milan a few times. “I love Milan and managed to see friends in a short amount of time,” he said, adding a few Italian words. Coming up for Turner are a BBC “conspiracy thriller” and his role as Frank Churchill in a new rendition of “Emma,” opposite Anya Taylor-Joy playing the titular heroine. “We need more Emma,” he joked about the latest cinematic version of the Jane Austen novel. Filming “in and around England” will start in May, directed by this “really cool American photographer and director Autumn de Wilde, who did Beck’s album and lots of iconic rock ‘n’ roll photos.”
British actor Will Poulter said he was in Milan just for the Prada show, although he did manage to squeeze in one Italian meal. “Yeah, we went to Pizza Express,” joked Turner, who was sitting nearby. The Brits never leave their sense of humor behind, do they? Poulter is currently playing Colin, a computer programmer, in “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” on Netflix and will star in “Midsommar,” a film about a summer holiday gone wrong, which is due for release later this year.

Canali Men’s Fall 2019

After seasons of unveiling its collections at Milan Fashion Week, Canali made a comeback to Florence with an evening event hosted inside the prestigious Palazzo Antinori. This was a smart move for the brand, as opting for a presentation format managed to openly showcase the high-end quality of its men’s offering. In keeping with current trends, Canali refreshed its tailoring with a relaxed, leisurewear-inspired approach. Graphic urban jackets were crafted from luxury fabrics, while cashmere coats featured sporty details, including detachable nylon hoodies. Corduroy pants were matched with turtlenecks with an artisan feel and country-chic blazers, while the elegant attitude of pin-striped suits was tempered by the narrow coats peppered by macro houndstooth patterns. Cozy alpaca and mohair gave a cozy, warm feel to the overcoats, highlighting the collection’s overall sense of luxurious comfort.

‘Life Has Changed Very Dramatically.’ Meet the ‘Fiji Water Girl’ Who Became the Star of the 2019 Golden Globes

Kelleth Cuthbert is having a pretty good week. In just a couple of hours, the Los Angeles-based model became the Internet crowned Fiji water girl sensation for holding water bottles at the 76th Golden Globes. But if you’ve been on social media recently, you already know that.

Pictures of the “Fiji water girl” in the background of celebrity red carpet photos have been circulating at an impressive pace since Sunday’s broadcast. Though she was just doing her job as one of Fiji’s brand ambassadors at the event (responsible for keeping all the stars hydrated), she ended up in photos with Tony Shalhoub, Idris Elba, Dakota Fanning and even Heidi Klum lovingly kissing her fiancé, which Cuthbert tells TIME was one of her favorite photos of the night.

“I’ve worked with Fiji before, but this has never happened,” Cuthbert says.

Originally from Toronto, Canada, Cuthbert has been working as a fashion model and commercial actress for twelve years, so she is certainly no stranger to Hollywood. “I think it’s fun to work the red carpet and look at the fashion, but I never get starstruck,” she says.

Cuthbert says her Instagram following was around 53,000 before Sunday’s event. At press time, she has 189,000 followers—more than 256 percent increase. Though she’s still working on trucking through all of the emails, messages and comments she’s gotten since the Globes, she’s already been featured on the Late Late Show with James Corden.

And she’s gotten her fair share of marriage proposals on Instagram.

But because Cuthbert herself has gone viral, Fiji inevitably has, too. This marketing ploy was more than successful: Marketing analytics firm Apex Marketing Group estimates that Fiji would have had to spend $ 12 million for the same amount of brand exposure. But this wasn’t the first time the brand has worked with models in a similar fashion. Cuthbert has worked with Fiji at other events, including the Emmys. This one, luckily for both the brand and for the model, just happened to have some incredible photo-ops.

Despite working in the industry for more than a decade, Cuthbert isn’t quite used to her newfound fame. “Just a couple days ago, I was walking my dog with no makeup and sweatpants on—maybe even had my pajamas on. Life has changed very dramatically,” she says. But as for what’s next, she’s excited. “I just have to sift through everything and figure out what offers are good, but I definitely would love to do more acting, more modeling, and just to be really busy—really productive.”

Astrid Andersen Men’s Fall 2019

Andersen brought a Copenhagen chill to her collection, which unfolded in the vast outdoor courtyard of Broadgate Plaza, near Liverpool Street station. She certainly came prepared, placing little disposable glove warmers on each chair for guests, and sending out a lineup of cozy knits and plump fur coats — in addition to lots of pinstripes and hand-painted prints.
The designer said she wanted to fuse the idea of streetwear with classical tailoring and luxury fur, as the lines between catwalk and street have blurred beyond recognition.
She worked charcoal pinstripe fabric into karate-style suits, puffers and tracksuit bottoms sealed with reflective tape. Her long, swooshing pinstripe topcoats had a gangster-ish feel to them. That pairing of formal and sporty worked beautifully, although it remains to be seen what bank, law firm or judge will let those outfits through the door.
Andersen worked lots of color into the collection, too, via freeform, hand-painted prints on shirts and hoodies and a terrific lineup of knitwear, including cable-knit leggings for a cold January night, and boxy color-blocked sweaters in rich combinations including corn and mint green.
Color also came in the form of fat, luscious fur coats. They were long and silvery, hip-length and baby blue, or short

The biggest fashion trend at the 2019 Golden Globes was see-through corsets and bras


The biggest fashion trend at the 2019 Golden Globes was see-through corsets and bras

When it comes to awards season, we all love a good fashion and beauty trend. At the 2019 Golden Globes, celebrities made sure to light up the show with dazzling ensembles. We’re talking bride-like gowns, dresses with pockets, and more.

While big ballgowns flooded the red carpet, the trend that caught our attention was a little more risqué. We noticed a lot of exposed corsets and see-through tops that added a touch of high fashion. Of course, no outfit was the same. Some stars opted for a simple silhouette that had a fairytale-like design while others sizzled in jewels and lace. From Emily Blunt to Kiki Layne, these are the stars that have us searching for exposed bras and corsets.

Kiki Layne

The Crazy Rich Asians actress stunned on the red carpet with her nude-colored, tulle ballgown. It featured a see-through corset and a spicy orange ribbon that wrapped around her waist. Her ensemble was regal and princess-like.

While this is a more modest take on the exposed bra trend, Emily dazzled in a jewel-encrusted Alexander McQueen gown. It even featured intricate lace detailing.

Leave it to Heidi to show up and show out on the red carpet. Not only did she attend the star-studded event with her new fiancé Tom Kaulitz from Tokio Hotel, but she wore a whimsical Monique Lhuillier dress. Her ballgown featured an exposed corset and a bouquet of flowers at the skirt.

How to Own Your Career in 2019

Career ownership is an investment, just like home ownership. Adopting the concept of career ownership will give you confidence, freedom, and joy in knowing that you can determine your career success.

While in the process of creating a professional development workshop, Be the CEO of Your Career, I outlined what career ownership is:

-A conscious decision to take full responsibility for your career journey and never relying solely on others to determine your career trajectory;

-Strategically positioning yourself to reach personal career goals according to your own definition of success.

-Continuously invest in your professional development so your knowledge, skills, and abilities are in alignment with what your industry demands.

Here are four ways to own your career:

-Don’t be afraid to take on different career opportunities. Each experience is designed to teach you something different in order to prepare you for the next one. You’re not obligated to stay in any one position for a long period of time, even if that job seems perfect for you. Sometimes you must force yourself to leave your comfort zone so you can grow forward in a new direction.

-You own your knowledge, skills, and abilities and have the choice to rent your expertise in exchange for payment to employers, clients, etc. You don’t have to accept any and every job offered to you. Be sure to research and know your worth, starting with the minimum and then the maximum dollar amount you are willing to accept for the expertise you offer.

-Continue learning even if you have to pay for it yourself. Invest in books, workshops, conferences, training, coaching, and other resources that will add to your development.

Be careful not to put all your trust into promises made by others because they don’t owe you anything. Remember, while its true you will need help along your career journey, not everyone who appears to be genuinely helpful has your best interest in mind. Therefore, trust your instincts always, and that feeling in the gut of your stomach. Don’t allow your mind to talk you into something different.

Fun Fashion Fact

Most people use the terms button-down shirt and button-up shirt interchangeably, but did you know there’s one detail that sets them apart. The Huffington Post explains it like this:

“Button-down shirts, like button-up shirts, have buttons running straight down the center of the front of the shirt. But button-downs have an extra set of small buttons right below the collar, and corresponding button holes on the collar tips, to fasten the collar down to the shirt”

According to Business Insider, button-downs were originally made for polo players so they could fasten their collars to their shirts during matches to keep collars from flapping up around their faces while they were playing.

The guilt-free guide to being a better person in 2019

We’re all trying our best to be ‘woke’, ethical and sustainable. But then again‚ sometimes it’s hard to know what the damn rules are. Here, Francesca Hornak breaks it down

Recycling

Essential, obviously. But if only waste disposal didn’t come with so many diktats. How clean must an empty pot of Yeo Valley be to guarantee recycling? What about an empty can of sustainably sourced tuna? Is a rinse fine, or does it need to go in the dishwasher, or is that a waste of energy? Which bin does cling film go in? What about cellophane? And Jiffy bags – part paper, part plastic? These are the kind of quandaries that have seen sane people get out of bed to give the hummus pot in the green box an extra wash, for luck.

Coffee Cups

Hooray for KeepCups! So simple, so stylish! Except that every morning one of two things will happen. You’ll either realise, as you rummage for the sodding cup at the front of a long, tetchy queue for coffee, that you have forgotten it and will have to sidle to your desk with a shameful disposable cup, conscious that yesterday you were talking loudly about ‘that documentary on plastics’. Or you’ll remember the KeepCup just as you’re about to leave home, and locate it sitting in your bag, coated in stale coffee from the day before. You’ll then make yourself late washing it, and detect a hint of Fairy Liquid in your flat white.

‘Why do I never have one of my 500 canvas totes when I’m actually in a shop?’

Facebook

Isn’t there something innately unclean about Facebook? Even before fake news and all its attendant moral dilemmas, the whole place always felt grubby, posting content for likes from people you neither like nor care about. But still we can’t help ourselves stalking the girl everyone fancied at school and then cursing Mark Zuckerberg for stealing another hour of our lives.

Bags for life

Is it wrong to miss, just slightly, the time when there was always a spare plastic bag kicking around at home? Something to line the bathroom bin with, or shove your muddy trainers in? It is wrong, and you know it. As a result, you now have a huge collection of bags for life under your sink, and an uneasy feeling that these might take even longer to biodegrade than the flimsy plastic bags of yesterday. See also: why do I never have one of my 500 canvas totes when I’m actually in a shop?

Periods

Once, you could unwrap a Tampax Compak without seeing a little grenade of toxic plastic, waiting to wash up on a beach. And in a few years’ time, we’ll probably all have mastered Mooncups and Dear Kate pants (does anyone else find this off-puttingly close to a nappy?). But until then, no woman should be begrudged the occasional Lil-Let.

Veganism

Touted as the no-brainer route to a more sustainable life (assuming you can find joy in life without cheese). That is, until you Google ‘air miles from almond milk’ or ‘is coconut oil worse for you than butter?’ and feel immediately exhausted. But let’s face it, who regularly has time to roast legs of lamb anyway? You’re probably unintentionally vegan half the time out of sheer culinary laziness. Job done.

Healthy holidays and a sunscreen rethink: top five travel trends for 2019

Rising eco-awareness, wellness breaks and a farewell to passports … we look at changes in the world of travel for the year ahead

Last October, Club 18-30 holidays staggered off into the sunset, aged 50. To the relief of Mediterranean resorts that had spent decades dealing with the carnage caused by epic drinking challenges, it appears that buckets of warm sangria – or worse – have lost their appeal. We have entered the era of the healthy holiday, driven by young people who want to be sober enough to take a flattering selfie. The rise of ‘ego travel’ was cited by Thomas Cook when it retired the Club 18-30 brand, turning its focus on its Casa Cook and Cook’s Club brands, design-conscious hotels with gyms, tasting menus, upmarket cocktails and yoga.

London Fashion Week Men’s Fall 2019: What to See, Eat and Where to Shop

LONDON — The first weekend in January is never an easy one, but London has the antidote, with a lineup of streetwear and luxury stores and restaurants serving everything from classic British to Taiwanese food, all of which will be open during London Fashion Week Men’s.

London store End. 
Peter Cook

END OF THE LINE: British property group Shaftesbury has expanded its retail portfolio, opening the first London outpost for the online men’s wear store, End. Occupying 9,000 square feet on the corner of Broadwick and Marshall Streets, the two-story glass-fronted space offers a range of collections from labels including Off-White, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Nike and Adidas Consortiums. The store, which already has units in Newcastle, England, and Glasgow, Scotland, features modern furnishings such as marble staircases and glass showcases.
End is part of a strategy by Shaftesbury to position Soho as a go-to destination for emerging brands. The company has been offering reasonable rents in the neighborhood, which is a few minutes’ walk from Oxford and Regent Streets. Shaftesbury has also helped to install Supreme, Palace, Carhartt and Dukes Cupboard, a multibrand retailer, in the neighborhood. Samantha Bain-Mollison, head of retail at Shaftesbury, has been driving the strategy. She describes End as “influential, with a renowned selection of directional and globally sourced men’s wear.” — Hannah Connolly

Tibi Pre-Fall 2019

News first: Tibi has officially launched men’s. Ssense picked up the smattering of men’s looks that appeared on Amy Smilovic’s spring runway and will be incubating the collection for at least a yearlong exclusive. “We didn’t really know we were tapping into something new in the market,” Smilovic said during a pre-fall preview. “Ssense really believes there’s a whole area missing for soft tailoring. Men’s doesn’t really have any young designer correlation. There’s nothing for a guy who’s like, ‘I want to pay a little more than contemporary and a lot less than designer and I don’t want to be street.’”
In terms of the pre-fall lineup at large, Smilovic focused on lightening things up in terms of attitude, a sense of humor. “We never do a theme, per se, but we were feeling the need to shake things up a bit, keeping on the track of updating classics, and a little bit of not taking yourself so seriously felt right,” she said. “We love suiting and a real urban palette, but we wanted to infuse it with a nature vibe.” Nothing was funny-ha-ha, but there were moments of cheekiness, for example, an oversize women’s suit cinched with a supersized, Eighties-inspired belt

5 Must-See Anime to Watch This January 2019

This year’s winter anime lineup is chock full of new and returning series, making it pretty easy to kick off the new year by adding a couple more shows to our list. After all, there’s no better New Year’s resolution than vowing to watch more anime. The new series premiering this month are sure to set you on the path to success. Here are the five anime series you need to watch this January.

W’z

  • Premiere date: January 6
  • Studio: Frontier Works and GoHands
  • Genre(s): Action, Music

In recent years, anime about music has become increasingly popular, and Frontier Works and GoHands add to the mix with their original anime collaboration W’z. The series follows Yukiya, a 14-year-old who DJs days and night. Like literally any other artist, Yukiya wants to be famous — and important. But Yukiya’s afraid of getting hurt, so he plays music for a crowd of one and uploads his videos online. Things take a turn when he comes across a mysterious live broadcast from “that world.” Yukiya always believed that he couldn’t achieve his dreams by himself, that he needed to work toward his goal with someone else.

Tokyo-based record label GOON TRAX will be in charge of the music, and various other musical artists will lend their talent to the series. Frontier Works and GoHands’ original anime project premieres this January.

The Cost of Smiles

  • Premiere date: January 4
  • Studio: Tatsunoko Production
  • Genre(s): Military, Mecha, Slice of Life, Drama, Fantasy

Anime studio Tatsunoko Productions (Psycho-Pass 2, Casshern Sins) is celebrating its 55th anniversary with an original anime, The Cost of Smiles. The studio describes their latest project as a story of two girls from a distant planet. There’s Yuuki, a cheerful 12-year-old princess who spends her days at the palace with her friends — and who can save the world with her smile. Then there’s Stella, a 17-year-old soldier who can only use her smile to protect herself.

Toshimasa Suzuki (Heroic Age, Fafner: Heaven and Earth) will direct the anime at Tatsunoko Productions, and Shinichi Inotsume (Gangsta., Persona 5 the Animation) will pen the script. NOB-C and Naoto Nakamura will bring the characters to life. How these two young girls’ paths become intertwined remains to be seen. But by the trailer alone we can see that The Cost of Smiles is overflowing with robot battles that mecha anime fans will undoubtedly enjoy.

The Kotobuki Squadron in the Wilderness

  • Premiere date: January 13
  • Studio: WAO World and GEMBA
  • Genre(s): Action, Military, Adventure

Girls und Panzer director Tsutomu Mizushima‘s new original anime, The Kotobuki Squadron in the Wilderness, will premiere this January. His latest project centers around a group of bodyguards for hire known as the Kotobuki Squadron. The group is led by a beautiful yet strict squadron leader who must keep her rambunctious squad under control. But when it comes time to fight, they take to the air to battle against the pirates that plague the skies, pushing their Hayabusa fighters to the limit.

According to Mizushima, the anime will be a combination of 3DCG and hand drawings. And unlike Girls und Panzer  — which featured various types of tanks from around the world —  the airplanes in The Kotobuki Squadron in the Wilderness are all Japanese-made. So, no foreign fighters will appear in the series. Make sure you tune in this January to follow this eccentric all-female group of fighter pilots working to protect the aerial shipping lanes of a vast wasteland.

Super Dimensional Revolution Anime: Dimension High School

  • Premiere date: January 10
  • Studio: Polygon Pictures
  • Genre(s): Comedy,  Live-action, School

While anime has dabbled in 3DCG animation there hasn’t been a series — if memory serves us right — that mixes anime with live-action parts. Luckily, Polygon Pictures is set to dive into this new venture. Their latest project, Super Dimensional Revolution Anime: Dimension High School, follows five high school boys in remedial school who get transported into an anime world. Their mission: to stop the god of destruction from taking over the 3D world. To do this, the boys must regularly cross between the anime world and real life, transforming from real people to animated characters and back again, as needed.

Yuuichi Abe (The Girl in Twilight, SD Gundam Force) will direct and write the hybrid anime for Polygon Pictures, while Izumi (Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru) will design the anime versions of the characters.

Happy 2019!

As festive and full of good cheer as the holidays are, I’m relieved when they’re over. Goodbye Christmas music that causes annoying earworm. Goodbye Winter collections, holiday baking, holiday eating, sparkly lighting, relentless retail sales, and extremely busy airports. I’ve begun thinking about Spring and Summer fashion, and I’m breathing a sigh of relief. 

I look forward to the start of the new year, making January one of my favourite months. It’s a time to reflect, reboot, improve, clean up, make changes, and start afresh. I think about my priorities, how I can do things in a better way, and be a better person. Most of all, I make a point of creating peace in my heart about the things that bothered me during the previous year so that I can move on and enjoy life.

I’ll be reflecting a lot about fashion and style this month, and look forward to hearing your thoughts as you reflect with me. In the meantime, I wish you a happy, healthy and fabulous 2019 that is full of love, laughter, fab adventures, fun fashion, great style, and peace in your heart.

4 Life-Lifting Books for 2019 Beyond ‘Becoming’

I don’t know a woman who doesn’t have Michelle Obama’s memoir, Becoming, and isn’t following her tour, whether up close or via Twitter. Never has a book been more heavily hyped, analyzed, and quoted — and it has paid off. Even Oprah must be thinking, ‘Daaammn!’ Like Lady Michelle, we are all always on the road to becoming our best imagined selves and great books can help us get there. Here are four life-lifting books for 2019, that I encourage you to take along for the ride.

 

Go back in time with Zora

Barracoon: The Story of the Last “Black Cargo” (Amistad/HarperCollins Publishers) is a first-person history of Cudjo Lewis, the last known survivor of the last slave ship to make the transatlantic journey. Painstakingly transcribed in his own dialect, it requires an attentive reader.

books for 2019

If you’re shaking your head no to another slave story, here are three reasons to at least try this one:

For starters, Cudjo’s story is recounted by the magnificent Zora Neale Hurston, who interviewed him at his home in Plateau, Alabama, over the course of three months in 1927. We often forget that Hurston was not only a great writer, she was a trained anthropologist, and to read this is to experience all parts of her intellect, interests, and cultural contributions and to see her in a new light.

Reason two: the brief, but illuminating, foreword by Alice Walker who begins with a warning: “I’m not sure there was ever a harder read than this.” But she goes on to note how universally Cudjo’s storytelling resonates, bringing to life “the nobility of a soul that has suffered to the point almost of erasure, and still it struggles to be whole, present, giving.”

Finally, there is incredible importance in this story itself. We are a people who suffer from so much lost history. Hard as it may be, we are strengthened by learning all we can, and sharing it.

Open your brave heart

Have you heard of Cleo Wade? As a creative – through storytelling, public art, and community building largely on social media – she has been noted above all as a poet and influencer. If you haven’t heard of Wade, it’s time you do.

Peppy, motivational, inspiring and relatable, her book, Heart Talk: Poetic Wisdom For A Better Life (37 Ink/Atria Books, Simon & Schuster) is easy to read in quick bursts, each of which will leave you feeling a bit lighter, and brighter, and braver.

books for 2019

It’s dedicated to “every human being,” opens with a letter to “Dearest You,” and ends with a highly quotable poem that goes on for 17 pages. It says, in part: “I see that the clearest route to bliss is to be alive while you are here to be with yourself in a love so deep the oceans get jealous and even outer space wants to be inside.”

Are you enough?

Self-help books almost always have catchy titles and tap into something that makes total sense. But a few pages in we may become lost, or bored, or not wanting to be preached to, worked over, or challenged. That list is already, too, long.

That could be why “The 7 Laws of Enough: Cultivating a Life of Sustainable Abundance,” drew me in.

books for 2019

Although the book covers some well-tread territory, (“You are enough. You do enough. You have enough, already,”) the idea of sustainable abundance feels like a worthwhile goal and the calm, compassionate tone of its co-writers Gina LaRoche and Jennifer Cohen will keep readers engaged. So does the book’s super-digestible 7 laws, a favorite is #5: Resting is Required.

Like any self-help tome worth its weight (this one is blessedly light), there is homework at the end of each chapter — lots of suggested journaling, reflecting, and inventory-taking designed to break unhelpful habits.

“Reading isn’t enough,” the authors note in their intro. “You must make an everyday practice of being who you wish to be, and living how you wish to live.” Practice is code for a committed vigilance to changing the habits and thinking derailing your joy.

“This is the gym of your life,” they write. “We invite you to a lifetime membership.”

Join the Black Girl Cook Club

For an anthology of 2018 writings by black contemporary black woman authors, look no farther than Well-Read Black Girl: Finding Our Stories, Discovering Ourselves (Ballantine Books). Compiled by Glory Edam, the young visionary bookworm who founded the Well-Read Black Girl book club, the book is unique for its celebration of black women writers by 21 avid black woman readers who became gifted writers themselves. Their essays, prompted by the question, “When did you first see yourself in literature?” are thoughtful and intimate. Their responses, writes Edam, do more than pay homage to their role models, “They reveal what influences their craft, drives their curiosity, and defines their legacy.”
