BCBG Taps Kate Young, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for 30th Anniversary

For its 30th anniversary, BCBG Max Azria is heightening its profile by appointing stylist Kate Young as creative consultant and tapping Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to appear in its spring 2019 campaign. It’s a new move for the contemporary brand founded by Max Azria in 1989.
Young, who signed not long after Marquee Brands took control of BCBG, is working alongside creative director Bernd Kroeber, who worked with Joyce Azria as part of BCBGeneration team.
“I’ve consulted for many brands, but no one really does this,” Young said of taking on a public consulting role.
“I have a sort of old school love for the brand. For me it has this association with moving to New York, which sort of goes with the ambitious working stylish girl,” Young said. “It’s fun collaborating together on colors and shapes. I’m just trying to bring a little of my aesthetic in.”
“I’ve worked nearly a year with Kate and her sensibility and her eye is so refined,” Krober said.
The spring 2019 collection picks up where former creative director Lubov Azria left off, fusing modern and romantic in many of the brand’s signature looks from pleated color-blocked dresses to power suiting to sleek evening gowns and fashion-forward voluminous dresses.
“There is a kind of ease. Nothing’s too tricky, it’s really straightforward. It’s really chic and styled-seeming but uncomplicated,” Young said.
“Most women have different sides to themselves. This season it’s more of

Ralph Lauren Taps Emmy Rossum, Cameron Dallas, Influencers for Holiday

Ralph Lauren teamed up with a host of influencers for its latest holiday shopping campaign, tapping Emmy Rossum, Cameron Dallas, Iman, Taylor Hill, Olivia Palermo, Johannes Huebl the Shibutani siblings Alex and Maia to curated their own holiday shopping lists. The campaign then kicked off at the brand’s Beverly Hills flagship with a party Thursday night hosted by Rachel Zoe and Nate Berkus. Other guests included Kelly Sawyer, Elizabeth Chambers, Caroline Vreeland, Candice Nelson and David Lauren.
“They asked me to host along with Nate and to work on a gift guide for them, which of course was not hard at all since we are such a Ralph family and always have been,” said Zoe of the campaign, which she shot in Central Park. “It’s fun to help people navigate shopping. Men are the most challenging to buy for because they are so particular about what they want or don’t want but a guy is always happy to see a Ralph Lauren shopping bag. You can’t go wrong with a big Navajo cardigan or a shearling bomber. Or a holiday scented candle.”
Said Berkus, “I always appreciate giving and receiving things of quality that won’t go out of style,

Prada Taps J.K. Simmons for Video Project

MILAN — Prada tapped Academy Award-winning actor J.K. Simmons to play the key role in its newest video project, named “The Delivery Man.”
Celebrating the fashion house’s Cahier handbag, the series includes three distinct yet interconnected chapters, subbed “Midnight Request,” “Woman’s Best Friend” and “Priorities of Love.”
Directed by filmmaker Ryan Hope, every short episode shows Simmons’ character valiantly facing obstacles to deliver the Prada Cahier bag — seen in three different color combinations — to a female recipient. These are embodied by actresses Pom Klementieff, Sasha Lane and Bahia Gold, respectively.
Debuted on Prada’s social media accounts and web site on Thursday, the first, high-paced episode “Midnight Request” is set in a nightclub, where Klementieff shares a short anecdote wrapped in a Prada fall dress with neon embellishments before receiving her blue and black Cahier handbag.

Available on Oct. 13 and 15, the other two chapters will be set in a Hollywood Hills mansion overly protected by a guard dog and in the delivery man’s own home, where a final, unexpected plot twist — according to Prada — will take place.

Sasha Lane will star in the second episode of Prada’s “The Delivery Man” series.
