CFDA and Cadillac Launch a New ‘Retail Lab’ Concept

Fashion

The Council of Fashion Designers of America has elected to team up with Cadillac to create a “retail lab,” which will consist of giving designers a crash course on the process of opening up a store of their own. The concept will begin in July, 2016 with designer Timo Weiland. It is well-known that car companies are the most frequent sponsors in the fashion industry (think Mercedes-Benz’s eight year stint as the namesake for New York Fashion Week), so this partnership is within the norm.

CFDA and Cadillac Launch a New 'Retail Lab' Concept

Cadillac is relatively new to working with the fashion industry, but now it is the leading sponsor for the menswear round of New York Fashion Week. The luxury car company has also supported various shows for designers such as Jason Wu, J. Mendel, and Public School; Wu even made an appearance in a 2015 Cadillac commercial on TV.

The Retail Lab from this partnership will integrate participating designers into a mentorship program, with a distinct focus on young and budding labels who are looking to transition into the direct retail business. Through the program, the designers will be given an 800-square foot pop-up shop for three months, which will be located on the ground floor of Cadillac’s New York headquarters. In order to determine who will be able to participate in this program, the CFDA will put potential candidates through an extensive application process. The final decisions for participants will be selected personally by the advisory board for the Retail Lab, including Julie Gilhart, Reed Krakoff, Simon Doonan, and Steven Ahn, among others.

The essential grounds for participation in this concept is that the prospective designer does not have, nor has ever had, their own storefront. The Lab will give them a chance to interact with their customers in a more direct way, and will be able to be in charge of their own interior design and other visual stimulation methods. The leaders of the Lab will be covering all of the general costs of the store location (mannequins, displays, signs, etc.), and will provide advisers to help the designer with matters of marketing, logistics, and the buying of supplies for the store. And on top of all of these provisions, Cadillac will give the selected labels a $75,000 grant in order to promote future success with the visions of the designers.

Timo Weiland was selected for the first slot in July due to his previous involvement in the CFDA’s Incubator project. Steven Kolb, CEO of the CFDA, spoke on this decision, making sure to note the analysis was properly weighed, and that they made this first decision based from their 2014 program due to the Retail Lab’s quick approach.

Weiland commented, on behalf of the rest of his design team, that the label would be using the opportunity and space to extend their creative vision so the world could have a better idea of who the brand was on a more personal level. The team will also be playing around with decorations for their new temporary space, as well as temporary space, as well as show films and providing the customer with a fun shopping experience via playing the role of disc jockey on some occasions.

The application process opened on the CFDA website on April 5, and designers will have the chance to submit their applications until May 6, following the announcement at the end of May of the five selected designers who will later be participating. This is a unique project for the fashion industry, and one that will prove extremely beneficial to designers who are looking to get a foothold in the physical aspect of fashion retail. Even further, Cadillac as signed a three-year commitment to this, so we’ll see a lot of talent being rounded up over the course of the Retail Lab.

Beyonce Unveils Ivy Park Athleisure Collection

Fashion

The first news about a Beyoncé x Topshop possible collaboration began breaking the Internet back in October 2014, and it took one more year to finally get any sort of confirmation. And now, on April 1st, we can finally see its results (it’s not an April Fool’s Day prank!). To develop Beyonce’s entire Ivy Park athleisure collection, as Topshop’s owner Sir Philip Green revealed, it took a grand total of 18 months and, apparently, it is “just the beginning” of the brilliant Beyonce x Topshop journey; speaking of excitement!

Beyonce for Topshop Ivy PArk 2016 Athleisure Collection

Named after Beyoncé and Jay Z’s daughter Blue Ivy, a preview of the collection was unveiled yesterday via the singer’s Youtube channel, where Beyoncé herself gave us a sneak peek of her athleisure-inspired Ivy Park pieces. The video consists of a well-balanced array of black & white shots, where we can spot Queen B standing in the middle of a playground, wearing her lineup’s items. The video then goes all the way into its more motivational mode, with Beyoncé running on a treadmill, stretching and working out in general. At the end, she even explains what the meaning behind the Ivy Park collection is.

“I would wake up in the morning, and my dad would come knocking on my door, telling me it’s time to go running. […]I remember wanting to stop, but I would push myself to keep going. It taught me discipline and I would think about my dreams; I would think about the sacrifices my parents made for me. I would think about my little sister and how I was her hero. I would look at the beauty around me, the sunshine through the trees; I would keep breathing.”

The promo even features Ivy Park’s main source of inspiration, Blue Ivy, who is filmed while wearing some utterly cute mini versions of the activewear collection’s ensembles. The collection will sell starting from April 14 via 12 retail chains and in more than 50 countries, including Zalando (which means there’s more chance to get your hands on the pieces!), Net-a-Porter and Topshop. It’s a huge collection indeed, with more than 200 pieces the price tags of which range from $30 to $200.

Beyonce for Topshop Ivy PArk 2016 Athleisure Collection

Ivy Park is perfect for anyone who likes to work out, from beginner runners to those who are fitness aficionados. It has technical performance characteristics, which will make anyone feel at ease while doing either yoga or lifting up weights, and includes everything from leggings (which come in three shapes) to bodysuits, varsity socks, sport bras and of course print jackets, which will be perfect to wear from the office to the gym. All of the pieces have been created to enhance the women’s body and to make them feel empowered.

“There are things I’m still afraid of. When I have to conquer those things I still go back to that park. Before I hit the stage I go back to that park. When it was time for me to give birth, I went back to that park. The park became a state of mind. The park became my strength. The park is what made me who I am. Where is your park?”

Tori Praver Summer 2016 Swimwear Collection

Fashion

By now, we know that Tori Praver can do just about anything. In her swimwear business, she has found great success as a designer, but with her stunning beach bod, the supermodel can even model her own looks, taking out a step in the process. It can be hard finding the perfect model for each new collection, but if you can do it yourself, then why not?

Tori Praver Summer 2016 Swimwear Collection

For the latest Tori Praver summer 2016 swimwear collection, she presented a very sex-driven line, with rather skimpy swimsuits for the beach season. The silhouettes are fresh and interesting, and the added sex appeal makes them ideal for anyone who isn’t afraid of showing up to the beach and using it as their personal catwalk, because all eyes are going to be on whoever decides to rock these swimsuits.

The bottoms are all ran high, to give a very cheeky display, which is where a great deal of the line’s sexiness comes into play. But she also paired this sometimes with a high waistline, which often works to counteract sensuality a bit, replacing it with a classic cuteness. In this case, however, Praver added cutouts and ties in many of these pieces, which kept things modern and cool. Those that are not high-waisted are often thin bands that employ the same cutout and tie appeal as the others.

Her one-piece swimsuits broke this mold, since naturally how high the waist is wouldn’t matter, and even though you were still getting minimal fabric on the backside, the added coverage in the midriff made everything sweeter. Her halter-styled piece is smooth with a textured fabric that would give great shape to the wearer’s body, although might be hard to pull off for the busty customers (although that could be said about many of the suits in this line). On the other hand, her yellow one-piece option with a paneled floral print is completely cute and sweet, with a classic design on top suited for more women’s body types. She didn’t give up her fun styling decisions altogether, by adding in lace-up details up the sides of one garment, making it lovelier.

The overall Tori Praver bikini looks are cute, as well, even above their glaring tones of sexuality. One such set that looked stunning is a strapless, barely-there top paired with solid, high-waisted bottoms. The design has sleeve caps in line with the bust, hanging on Praver’s arms, while the bust-strap is very thin, not allowing for much coverage above or below the bust line. If your goal is to show off your beach bod to the best of your ability, then this look is definitely designed with you in mind – Praver clearly designed this for herself, much as all of the looks in her line, because each one highlights her best features in one way or another.

As a model, being a talented designer is probably one of the best things to add on; she will never have to worry about finding the perfect swimsuit for a trip to the beach, because she can design and receive whatever she wants. Although those of us on the purchasing end will just be here to purchase the products of the multi-talented Praver – and her judgment as far as sensual swimwear is one I would trust any day.

Free People Festival 2016 Lookbook Has A Kaleidoscopic Effect

Fashion

The Free People Festival 2016 lookbook has just been unveiled, and it’s kaleidoscopic. Whenever Coachella and Spring Break are in the air,Free People delights us with an ad hoc inspirational festival lookbook, which this time literally catapults us back to the Seventies and makes us feel a bittersweet kind of nostalgia (even though most of us weren’t even born, in the Seventies). Along with Free People, Spanish retailerMango treated us to some festival-inspired proposals too, meaning that we now have an array of festival outfis for 2016 to wear not only to the forthcoming spring festivals, but also to all the cheerful summer parties too. You can already snag up these lovely essentials for your spring wardrobes heading to Free People’s website!

Free People Festival 2016 Lookbook

While Free People’s latest lookbook featured a softer focus and accentuated the Seventies’ most delicate and boho side, the Kaleidoscope Skies lookbook celebrates the hippy culture at its purest, with all its cosmically-charged colors, magical rainbow touches and goddess-like silhouettes. Lensed by Tina De Leon and styled by Karolina Bernat, the Free People Kaledoscope Skies lookbook features Alina Weber, letting her perfectly embody the whole party girl in the Seventies mood. Waving us peacefully off with a tambourine in her hand, Alina Weber sports au naturel makeup and hairstyle that gracefully match the proposals’ floaty lines and vintage prints, not to mention the shredded effects, the fringing and studs that will make anyone giggle.

As for the hues, the lookbook brings in all the colors of Mother Nature, meaning that one could easily find anything from earth-toned blouses to billowy, fresh rainbow-colored maxi gowns. The line-up does not only showcase oversized attire options, as most of the shorts and shirts are meant to make your legs, bellies and shoulders shine under the summery bright sun. For an even cooler effect, and just in case you would like to cover a few more areas, try adding length with any of the fringed waistcoats, which are also meant to be paired either with summer flats or chunky ankle cowgirl boots.

Suede vests will protect you from the windiest days, while band tees will serve as the perfect daytime outwear option when you just want to go to sunbathe at the park (not to mention the possibility to sporting them with a more glam rock outfit). Bell-bottom jeans, lace-up crop-tops and multi-colored crochet pullovers will then quickly become essential staples to wear both at the festivals and at any Seventies-themed party.

To top it all off, Free People put a lot of emphasis on the accessory line, offering quirky kaleidoscopic sunglasses, suede hats, leather choker necklaces and, of course, headbands, which will effortlessly complete each festival outfit.
