Stella McCartney To Release Eco-Friendly Denim In Spring 2014

Denim has always been a staple of the Stella McCartney collections and has been featured on the runway in previous seasons. For Spring 2014, the range is expanded into an offering of up to 10 styles in 20 washes including prints and colors that complement the designer’s ready-to-wear collection.

The increase in styles this season focuses on jeans and shorts in either skinny leg, wide leg or boyfriend fit with a low, high or mid-rise. Washes including over dyed, faded and degrade come in classic shades of indigo, white, grey and black; while a fresh spring palette consists of rose, lipstick and chamomile. Prints are playful in a black and white heart print and subtle in all black subtle leopard.

The range features a new denim technology including high recovery fabric that reduces stretching due to wear while also shaping the body. Continuing the designer’s commitment to sustainability, 8 styles are 100% organic cotton, farmed using a water efficient process that does not involve harmful chemicals, restores and maintains soil health.

Additionally no sand blasting has been used, a technique commonly used in denim which is harmful to workers due to the high exposure toxic silica in the air. All the denim styles are 100% made in Italy.

The denim range will ship 3 times a year and is available to retailers at market starting tomorrow for a November delivery with a retail price range from $350 to $595.

WWD News: Fashion Crowd Raises $1.2M for Hetrick-Martin Institute, Pharrell Williams Partners With Moncler, Ali Ro Expands Into Sportswear, Fashion’s Night Out Rescheduled, Fashion Scoops: Stella’s Gap Encore…

In today’s WWD News, the fashion crowd raises money for Hetrick-Martin Institute, Pharrell Williams collaborates with Moncler, Ali Ro jumps into sportswear, fashions night out is rescheduled by a day and Stella McCartney will design another collection for GapKids for a spring line due out in March!

I wanted to add that I had the fortunate pleasure of attending a Hetrick-Martin Institute fund raiser hosted by the dynamic interior design duo, George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg of Yabu Pushelberg, this past March.  It is heart warming to know that there is so much support for the Hetrick-Martin Institute’s mission to service, educate and empower the young gay and lesbian community.  If you would like to donate and help support the cause, go to

Fashion Crowd Raises $1.2M for Hetrick-Martin Institute

In an evening filled with humor, emotion and generosity, a crowd of 750 converged on Cipriani Wall Street Nov. 10, raising nearly $1.2 million for the Hetrick-Martin Institute. 

HMI provides a safe and supportive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth between the ages of 12 and 21. More than 1,200 individuals pass through the institute??™s doors at 2 Astor Place every year, where they receive a wide range of services including job assistance, counseling, college guidance, HIV-prevention workshops and hot meals. 

???The fashion community came together and pulled off a 20 percent increase in raising funds this year, and that is a true testament to the support of Hetrick-Martin??™s mission,??? said Rob Smith, Macy??™s executive vice president and general merchandise manager of ready-to-wear, and co-chair of the institute. 

The evening celebrated HMI??™s 30th anniversary, and honored HMI co-founder Joyce Hunter for her commitment to the LGBTQY community, Mayor Bloomberg for his staunch support of LGBT rights and the late Harvey Milk through a stirring video montage and an award presented to his nephew, Stuart Milk.

Pharrell Williams Partners With Moncler

The news confirms a WWD report on Sept. 10. 

The all-black lineup will make its debut for fall 2010 and includes a ???pacifist??? version of the bulletproof jacket, with Velcro-ed side slits, reversible matte/shiny down vests and elongated puffers. 

Mirroring Williams??™ environmental activism, the jackets are fashioned using textiles from Bionic, a three-year-old company he controls. Bionic spins yarns and fabrics from recycled plastic bottles. 

Williams said he was ???honored??? to join forces with Moncler, noting the project happened on a lark when he met Remo Ruffini, Moncler??™s chairman and creative director, at last year??™s Miami Art Basel showcase. ???I told him I loved his stuff and he offered to do something together, so we started tossing ideas around,??? said Williams.

The two-year-old contemporary dress brand, owned and operated by brand president Kathleen McFeeters (who also owns the Donna Morgan label), is expanding its mix for spring to include a full range of sportswear. 

???When we launched the line, we always intended for it to be a full collection, but at the time we were in a dress cycle and even the sportswear departments were flooded with dresses,??? McFeeters said. ???We added some separates here and there, but now this is a true full collection for spring.??? 

The spring lineup includes a wide variety of items, including silk blouses with rosette details, solid cotton and printed silk shorts, silk and linen jumpers, boyfriend blazers with cuffed sleeves, a range of skirts and still a large selection of dresses, from a sequin silk tank dress to a brightly printed sundress. The collection wholesales from $79 for a top to $170 for a jacket.

Fashion’s Night Out Rescheduled


Next year??™s Fashion??™s Night Out has been rescheduled to Friday, Sept. 10, instead of Sept. 9. 

The change was revealed Wednesday by the organizers, which include the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Vogue and NYC & Company, the city??™s marketing, tourism and partnerships organization. 

The schedule switch was made so Fashion??™s Night Out would not be held during Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and to maximize local consumer and tourist participation by holding the event on a weekend evening. The organizers also said they will work closely with the fashion industry to ensure the change in date will not disrupt the ongoing trade activities of fashion week and the shows during that time. 

The first Fashion??™s Night Out was held this past Sept. 10 and was successful in getting crowds out to hundreds of stores in New York City, which stayed open late for designer and celebrity appearances, live windows, musical performances, book signings, and to sell merchandise. Fashion??™s Night Out was also held in several major cities around the world and will next year again go global. 

But while the traffic was strong, many retailers felt people were much busier partying than shopping. However, for the second Fashion??™s Night Out, it??™s expected more incentives to shop will be added. A fashion show of fall 2010 styles for consumers is being considered as well.

Stella McCartney’s Kid Rock

???I did a lot of looking at my own kids,??? Stella McCartney said on Thursday evening of the inspiration for the lines she was launching for GapKids and BabyGap. Acting as ringmaster for a wild scrum of little ones at the Little Red School House in Greenwich Village, McCartney offered a quick collection assessment: Of the band-major jacket with brass buttons, McCartney said with a laugh, ???No, it??™s not Sgt. Pepper. If I did that, I??™d have done it in bright blue.??? There was a lion-covered sweater dress, plus plenty of staple pieces like henleys and Ts. ???All the women in the office have them,??? said Gap creative director Patrick Robinson, whose son, Wyeth, stood nearby in head-to-toe Stella for GapKids. ???They??™re just cool, adorable clothes.???

 The launch was also an early celebration of Halloween on the school??™s fourth floor, where Gap billboards lined hallways and waiters dressed as bumblebees proffered vegetarian appetizers to the under-10s. A decidedly low-key, let-the-cupcake-crumbs-fall-where-they-may vibe dominated, with kids climbing the walls as parents,

including stylists Tabitha Simmons, Alex White and Teen Vogue??™s Amy Astley, commingled.   

???With kids, they start as this blob that you have to dress, and then they??™re running around and you just have to get it over their heads, and then they??™re nearly teenagers,??? McCartney said. ???I tried to cover all of that.??? With her sister Mary and her father Sir Paul??™s girlfriend, Nancy Shevell, nearby, McCartney admitted that ???I??™d be lying if I said I hadn??™t thought??? of designing a line of children??™s clothes under her own name.  As for the Halloween plans of her own three children, who stayed in England? ???Oh, you know, a sheet and two eyes cut out,??? McCartney said wryly. ???We really go for it in my house.???

Stella’s Cheeky Take on Lingerie

Stella McCartney continues to have a steamy love affair with lingerie. 

The designer, a self-described aficionado of undergarments who has had a passion for lingerie since she was a child, will unveil her spring collection of Stella McCartney intimates at the Bendon showrooms today. Licensed to New Zealand-based Bendon Ltd., the first collection was launched in the U.S. in spring 2008. 

Each of the 15 groups is named after women in what McCartney describes as cheeky situations, such as Rosie Plotting, a silk chiffon printed range featuring a black-and-white feather print from the Stella McCartney ready-to-wear collection; Eva Scampering, a playful silk chiffon ladybug-printed group with a cami, a chemise and a matching brief; Billie Twirling, a vintage-inspired knicker and chemise with scallop hem of silk satin with a matte-and-shine contrast, and Ines Sneaking, a pale pink lace and silk crepe de chine contour bra, underwire bra and coordinating undies. 

The collection, which received strong reaction when previewed to select stores this month, features vintage-inspired styles, detailing, and fabrics such as tulle and mesh. The color palette includes a range of neutral pales, and dusty pink and lavender with accents of ink blue and gray alongside pretty florals and graphic prints. 

Bras retail from $75 to $85; chemises are priced at $150; bodysuits are $135, and briefs sell for $40. McCartney??™s popular Knickers of the Week have been reworked to create silk and cotton-blend Monogram Knickers of the Week with raised embroidered vintage monogram letters, priced at $195. There??™s also a Happy Birthday embroidered cotton bikini for $45.

Scoops: Margiela’s Library Rules… Jeffrey Sebalia’s New Project…

by WWD Staff

BOOKISH: No cryptic concept here. To celebrate its new book ???Maison Martin Margiela??? by Maison Martin Margiela, published by Rizzoli, the house, or at its least lab coat-wearing p.r.s, decamped to New York last Thursday and set up Caf?© Select in SoHo like a library. White hoofed footprints on the floor led through the kitchen to a spare installation space furnished with white desks, lamps and chairs, and wallpapered with a black-and-white photo print of stacks ??” quiet and low-key, just like the party going on up front. Among the small group of editors and arty types were Terence KohTerry Richardson ??” one of the book??™s many contributors ??” and Margiela fanboy Michael Stipe, who??™s been a follower since the Eighties, ???before they even did men??™s wear,??? he said.

EBAY??™S HOLIDAY SPOT: EBay will open its first holiday store, a 5,500-square-foot pop-up at 3 West 57th Street operating Nov. 20 to 29, except Thanksgiving Day, and stocked with a selection of Norma Kamali??™s exclusive fashions for eBay, L.A.M.B shoes, handbags from Michael Kors and Dooney & Burke, Anthropologie dresses, cosmetics from M.A.C., Smashbox and other brands, and the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue and Vera Wang Princess fragrances. Electronics, toys, home and garden items will also be displayed, but shoppers will have access to the entire eBay marketplace via Internet kiosks, handheld tablets and the eBay mobile phone application. EBay will trumpet the shop with a cocktail party Nov. 19 and on Black Friday, a limited quantity of ???daily deal??? items will be awarded to the first 100 shoppers who visit the store. Dollars spent in the holiday shop, up to $200,000, will be matched by eBay to support Global Giving, Grammy in the Schools, Oxfam America, Right to Play, Save the Children, Share Our Strength, St. Jude Children??™s Research Hospital, Starlight, Toys for Tots, U.S. Fund for UNICEF and YouthAIDS EBay.

PEP TALK: ???I love the dolly bird vibe ??” anything with a heel and an ankle strap is just me,??? said Tamara Beckwith at the launch of the 72-hour pop-up shop for Jimmy Choo??™s Project PEP at Seldfridges on Thursday night. The brand unveiled the 12-piece, limited edition collection at the store??™s Wonder Room. Twenty-five percent of net sales of the stilettos, totes and cuff bracelets will go toward the purchase of anti-HIV drugs for women and children at a rape crisis center in South Africa. Guests including Guy RitchieTheo Fennell, Beckwith and Melissa Odabash munched on fish and chips, a dish Tamara Mellon ??” dressed in a bright red Valentino dress ??” said she loves. Ritchie??™s mind, however, was miles away from the fried fish and fund-raising. ???I??™m all about the films at the moment, and I have Sherlock Holmes out in December,??? he said.

JEFFREY SEBELIA??™S NEW PROJECT: ???Project Runway??? winner Jeffrey Sebelia is injecting his rocker??™s edge into Fluxus as the Los Angeles-based casualwear label??™s new head designer. Sebelia, who scowled on millions of TVs during the reality program??™s third season before winning with his zipper-edged rockerwear, revamped Fluxus??™ lineup for spring with special wax treatments, sheer Modal and black stripe burnout. With retail prices between $66 and $300, Fluxus operates two stores in Los Angeles and also sells at retailers such as Atrium, Bloomingdale??™s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Revolve.

PHILIP GREEN, FOR SALE: Fans and competitors will be able to ???buy??? a piece of Topshop tycoon Sir Philip Green??™s very big brain at an upcoming charity auction. Krug??™s inaugural online Mind Share auction went live last week at offering 60 minutes with Green, Natalie Massenet of Net-a-porter, and a host of other VIPs in exchange for money for the thinkers??™ favorite charities. The three highest online bidders for each person will be invited to slug it out during a live auction at Christie??™s in London on Thursday. Green said he plans to donate his proceeds to the Autism Trust.

Rob Pruitt presented his First Annual Art Awards at the Guggenheim Museum with Calvin Klein Collection and in association with White Columns. Kylie Minogue, a presenter, dressed for the occasion in a spiraled Calvin Klein Collection frock. ???I match the space,??? the petite singer said, glancing at the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda. Performance artist Kembra Pfahler turned heads of guests like Nate Lowman, Julianne Moore and James Franco when she arrived wearing nothing but knee-high boots, a giant wig and blue paint. She took her seat next to Artist of the Year winner Mary Heilmann, with a napkin delicately placed between her blue bum and the Plexiglass chair. ???That??™s worth waiting for,??? Francisco Costa said.

Yves Saint Laurent got an early start on Halloween revelry when it threw a blowout masquerade ball Thursday night to celebrate the launch of its new women’s fragrance, Parisienne.


The brand made over the Angel Orensanz Foundation with blush pink backlighting, vase upon vase of lush roses and antique-looking chandeliers with flickering votive candles. And if that didn’t set the mood, the perfume’s ad campaign featuring a very suggestive Kate Moss played on a loop on flat screens throughout the venue.

 An eccentric mix of editors, models and Lower East Side night owls crammed the space to such capacity that security on Norfolk Street had to keep aspiring attendees at bay. “I haven’t been out for a while,” said one publicist as she scanned the dance floor for a familiar face. “I was wondering if I’d suddenly gotten behind and didn’t know who anyone was.”

 Surely the “mask required” dress code didn’t help matters. “I made mine at 4 am,” said Leigh Lezark, who, along with the Misshapes, shared DJ duties with Alexandra Richards. Dancing nearby, Becka Diamond was giving her vision-impairing mask a breather. “No one wants to see a pretty girl on the floor,” she joked.
