After much analysis and speculation, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, have withdrawn trademark applications for their Sussex Royal brand.
What some had pegged as potentially becoming a billion-dollar brand, the Sussex Royal brand is no longer every marketer’s dream that it once was. But the power couple could still very well reach billionaire status with their various speaking engagements, book deals, talk show appearances and other pursuits, according to one London-based branding expert.
According to news reports Friday, a spokeswoman for the Sussexes said in a statement, “While the Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new nonprofit organization, given the specific U.K. government rules surrounding use of the word ‘Royal,’ it has been therefore agreed that their nonprofit organization, when it is announced this spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘Sussex Royal’ in any territory post spring 2020,” she said.
After months of intense debate about the prospect of the Sussex Royal brand, today’s announcement sets forth a new course for the soon-to-be entrepreneurs. The former “Suits” actress and her husband, who call Vancouver Island home, will officially give up their royal duties
Loro Piana looked toward the Big Apple for fall, taking inspiration from both New York’s urban landscape and the warm tones of Central Park in the autumn. Skyscrapers inspired a structured coat made of melton cashmere in pale green, held together by a chunky light brown belt, as well as a brown baby cashmere trench with raglan sleeves. A long, ribbed, baby cashmere dress with side slits had a slightly padded turtleneck, so that the collar stays rigid, and was worn over a chic pair of cashmere trousers in matching beige.
The cashmere specialist added two technical innovations this season: the studio managed to work vicuna into jersey, which is no mean feat as the wool is so fine, and introduced its interpretation of eco-fur in the form of “cash-fur” fleece jackets, which took more than a year to develop. The material was applied to cute teddy bear-like jackets in light brown and cream, which were fully reversible. Cashmere-lined rain boots and a Forget Me Not line of accessories destined to hold all the things that have a tendency to get lost — leather phone and water bottle holders, lipstick cases and even earphone pouches — completed the range.
Joyce F. Brown, president of Fashion Institute of Technology, released a new statement Friday evening to the FIT community updating the steps the college has taken and continues to take in response to the fallout of the MFA Fashion show on Feb. 7.
As reported, during that show, model Amy Lefevre refused to wear accessories she considered racist that FIT graduate Junkai Huang showed with his looks. She walked the runway without them and told WWD she felt uncomfortable wearing them. Earlier this week, Brown issued a lengthy apology to those who participated in the show, to students and those who were offended by what they saw. The accessories, in question, were large prosthetic ears and lips and bushy eyebrows
“This moment, in our minds, is not about closing a chapter and letting wounds heal. It is the beginning of accountability. And we cannot expect our community to trust us without a full examination of how this came about,” said Brown in the new statement. She said FIT has commissioned an independent investigation “of ourselves.”
“Bond, Schoeneck & King, an external law firm, will immediately conduct a thorough and objective probe into the incident, including what led up to the show and what followed,”
A struggling stand-up comedian (Ben Schwartz) moves back home to Long Island with his tail tucked between his legs and strikes up an unlikely friendship with his eccentric dermatologist (Billy Crystal).
Set in a world where Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger and the like are not only real but celebrity role models for a disturbed hero, Leslie (Nathan Baesel), the movie examines his murderous passions through the eyes of a young filmmaker (Angela Goethals) and her crew. Appealing more to the brain than to the gut, "Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon" subtly prods at the sick dance between the news media and uber criminals without belaboring its point or lowering its tone.
This unique concert was filmed at the London Hippodrome on October 25th 2007. It formed a part of the launch for the Jimi Hendrix Live At Monterey program and featured Gary Moore and his band performing classic Hendrix tracks. At the end of the night Gary was joined by Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox of the Jimi Hendrix Experience for 3 tracks. Gary Moore was one of the finest British guitarists of all time and is one of the few players who could pay homage to Jimi Hendrix’s ground breaking and truly distinctive guitar style. This is a stunning tribute from one master guitarist to another.

Sometimes your life is split by a single decision. I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them. But now he’s back. I barely recognize the man he’s become, but I can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid. Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances, he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if I’d said yes all those years ago, he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different, we would have had a chance. One decision sent him away. One painful journey brought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him. *A contemporary romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion*
The Masterpiece is the tragic story of Claude Lantier, an ambitious and talented young artist who has come from the provinces to conquer Paris but is conquered instead by the flaws of his own genius. Set in the 1860s and 1870s, it is the most autobiographical of the twenty novels in Zola's Rougon-Macquart series. It provides a unique insight into Zola's career as a writer and his relationship with Cezanne, a friend since their schooldays in Aix-en-Provence. It also presents a well-documented account of the turbulent Bohemian world in which the Impressionists came to prominence despite the conservatism of the Academy and the ridicule of the general public.

For a standard sitcom in most respects, “Fresh Off the Boat” weathered a fair amount of off-screen drama. Despite the occasional tumult, the ABC series about an Asian-American family — which concludes its six-year run Friday — still left a mark.
A man was very eager to meet his future son in law. His daughter had gotten engaged unexpectedly and this weekend would be their first time meeting
him. He told all of his friends at work he had a whole list of questions to ask this young man.
On Saturday morning he invited his soon to be son-in-law out for a cup of coffee. As they began to talk, the father quickly found himself asking the
questions that were weighing on his mind.
“Do you have a job? I know you just finished college and all, but how do you plan to support yourself and my daughter?”
The young man paused and said, “Well, God will provide.”
The father then asked his second question, “Where do you intend to live? Do you have a house or apartment lined up for after the wedding?”
The young man paused and again, and with much conviction said, “God will provide.”
The father waited a few moments before launching into his third question. “Son, do you have any money? Any savings? A financial nest egg?”
The young man looked him right in the eye and said again, “God will provide.”
The following Monday all of the father’s co-worker were curious to find out how it had gone meeting his future son-in-law.
The father smiled and said, “I kind of like the kid. He thinks I am God!”
For the March 2020 issue, on newsstands now, Andy Samberg honored lumberjacks of yore, with an axe and everything. But there were a couple things missing (intentionally) from his look: Samberg traded the big, bushy beard for some dialed-back scruff, and ditched the hat in order to showcase his wavy, bountiful hair. His grooming sits squarely in the middle of laidback and cleaned up.
Want to mimic it? You can wear this hair-and-whiskers combo to most offices without anyone questioning your grooming habits—or rather, they’ll question them in the good sense. (What hair products? What beard trimmer length?)
These are the questions you probably have about Samberg’s off-duty lumberjack look—and the same ones we sent to Vicky Pena, head stylist at Boardroom Salon for Men (a series of barbershop clubs across the southern U.S.). Here’s Pena’s advice for how to get the beard and hairstyle Samberg rocks so well—and how to modify it for your own hair type.
How to Get the Perfect Spring Cut à la Andy Samberg
The Kind of Hair This Style Requires
“This is a great look for someone who naturally has a medium-to-strong wave pattern in their hair [like Samberg],” says Pena. With this as the main requirement, the style is achievable for varying hair densities. Samberg and guys with thicker hair will have fewer hassles. Guys with thinner densities should use a thickening shampoo and conditioner to help build volume and body, says Pena. We love Sachajuan’s thickening wash and conditioner. “These have the ability to add fiber to the hair,” she adds. The result is lightweight fullness, especially when paired with a lightweight styler (like a texturizing hair cream targeted at wavy or curly hair—like Bumble and bumble’s. “And make sure to finish it off with a setting spray that’ll give you hold without the weight,” she says. We recommend Living Proof’s flexible-hold hairspray.
As for guys with receding hair, it gets more difficult, Pena says. “Keep a little more length on the top, to allow for a slight camouflage. Then use a product with more flexibility and movement to allow the hair to wave naturally and help disguise the recession.” A texturizing hair paste could give you the definition and medium control you need for the style, without weighing things down. Try American Crew for this.
What to Tell Your Barber
Ask your barber or stylist for a taper on the sides, and no scalp exposure, says Pena. You can modify the length to your liking length, but be sure to leave the top longer. “This maintains the wave and achieves the fullness this look requires,” she says.
You can see on Samberg that the style doesn’t blend the top and sides cleanly; it’s more abrupt in contrast. You can do this, or ask for a more natural blend—whichever you prefer.
How to Style This Look
Depending on your hair density and texture, you may need to modify the products used. (Refer to the first section above.) But in general, this style should be kept light and “touchable,” so you’ll want to stick with texturizing pastes and creams, clay pomades, or sea salt sprays. (Again, see above for links to some of our favorite products for each step.) Apply them to towel-dried hair, then let them air dry—no hot tools needed, says Pena.
A dime-sized amount of product is enough to start; emulsify it in your palms, then apply evenly to your hair, targeting the roots first. Coach it into place with your fingers, as the style is really not tamed with a comb. If you do use a comb to style it, be sure to break up the tooth marks with your fingers when you’re finished. Finish with a zap of setting hair spray if you want to ensure that the style lasts all day. (And just because it’s “touchable” doesn’t mean you should be touching it all day; that will significantly compromise its ability to hold form.)
How Often You Should Wash and Condition
In general, the rules of shampoo state that you should wash your hair 2-3 times a week. But with this style, guys with straight hair may want to lean more toward an every-other-day regimen. Condition more regularly, on the majority of in-between days, as well as following each shampoo—that’s the more imperative note here: Always follow a shampoo with a conditioner, but never combine them.
“If you have a natural wave, it’s safe to say you can use fewer products and go longer without having to shampoo and condition this look,” says Pena. “On the other hand, if your hair is straight and requires more product to achieve this look, you may need a more frequent shampoo and condition. This will rid your scalp of any buildup or residue.”
How to Get This Facial Hair
As for the beard-trimming guard to use for this scruffy style: “This is a #2 or #3 standard clipper guard, used all over,” says Pena. “Depending on the density of the facial hair and the individual growth rate, this look can be cleaned up and maintained every 2-3 weeks.” Just clean up the neck and cheek lines more frequently—twice a week should suffice.

SCREEN TEST: Probably best known for her melancholic, yet radiant screen presence in “Crazy Rich Asians,” Gemma Chan is the recipient of the 2020 Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award.
The British actress is expected to attend the Italian brand’s fall fashion show today, and to receive her prize at the 2020 Women in Film Annual Gala on June 10 in Beverly Hills.
Max Mara has a knack for picking actresses on an upward trajectory, having also recognized the likes of Rose Byrne, Hailee Steinfeld, Chloë Grace Moretz, Katie Holmes, Zoë Saldana and Emily Blunt. Chan is the 15th recipient of the award, which recognizes her “distinguished acting achievements and personal embodiment of timeless style and grace.”
Chan recently wrapped another Marvel superhero film “Eternals,” alongside Kit Harington, Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek that will be released in November.
Up next is “Let Them All Talk,” a comedy directed by Steven Soderbergh and also starring Meryl Streep, Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest and Lucas Hedges.
Chan’s other big-screen credits include “Mary Queen of Scots” and “Captain Marvel.” She is also a seasoned theater actress and a mainstay of popular British television series, including “Humans” and “Doctor Who.”
Is fashion a religion? Alessandro Michele thinks it’s pretty close, with the runway show its most revered ritual. Michele dedicated his fall Gucci collection to the multitiered ritual of designing, making, staging and viewing a fashion show. He spoke of the show ritual in intimate terms, and seemed to channel old-school insider passions.
“Fashion is a complex mechanism, it’s theatrical. All of us work for this ritual, that is almost religious,” Michele said during his post-show press conference, a session filled once again with deep fashion thoughts delivered in a stream-of-consciousness monologue, save for a question or two interjected by a couple of intrepid journalists. Before he was finished, Michele would liken fashion to a circus as well as religion, and his creative role to that of a doctor and physicist. He would explain snippets of his soundtrack — the Fellini voiceover (he’s “talking about the sacredness of cinema and how much ritual there is) and Ravel’s Bolero (“a march that seems to keep going indefinitely”).
Fashion believers, Michele claimed, want to break free but can’t. “It traps you. We are all trapped. Everybody — the hairstylists, the makeup artists, everybody working together so hectically — we all say that one day
PARIS — Christelle Kocher’s Paris-based brand is gaining an Italian accent.
Between her collaboration with Emilio Pucci, set to bow in Milan today, and her recent alliance with entrepreneur Renzo Rosso’s fashion group OTB, the French designer is leveraging her connections across the Alps to propel her Koché brand into a new phase of expansion.
Hot on the heels of her prestigious ANDAM Grand Prize and collaborations with Nike and Converse last year, she is the first designer to be invited by Pucci to interpret its rich heritage, as part of a new strategy aimed at fostering creativity and innovation at the house, founded in 1947 in Capri.
Kocher, known for her guerrilla-style fashion shows melding sportswear influences with couture-inspired techniques, is no stranger to the brand’s history.
“I love reading the biographies of designers and I read about the life of Emilio Pucci years ago,” she said in an interview at her design studio, located on a cul-de-sac in the multicultural district of Ménilmontant in Paris. An aristocrat, Olympic skier and air force pilot, Pucci pioneered a lifestyle approach to fashion.
“He was a real character, and I think his approach was very modern. His brand was founded on comfortable jersey clothes, which was very

Everyone owns a pair of Levi’s. From the seminal 501 style to the 541 athletic cut, these guys have denim on lockdown. But the 167-year-old brand that invented jeans has its sights set on new territory with its latest collection. Levi’s has made a play into the chino game when it recently launched the Khalid for Levi’s XX Chino Collection. Needless to say, these aren’t your typical chinos.
Levi’s started by using its encyclopedic knowledge of fit and fabric to make this latest collection one that’s equal parts stylish and comfortable. This youthful approach to chinos is backed by a campaign featuring 21-year-old “Young, Dumb, and Broke” singer Khalid. “Khalid is the perfect embodiment of the Levi’s spirit—his authenticity, his personal style, and his optimism,” says Jennifer Sey, chief marketing officer of global brands. The collection strays from the typical chino offering with new, more street-smart styles (no bootcut here) inspired by its namesake.
Here’s how the new fits work: There’s a Standard Taper fit for those who typically reach for a slim straight. If you like them even slimmer, try the Slim Taper fit. (Don’t worry about it being too tight; these pants all have stretch.) Then there’s a Straight Cropped that has a full leg (think 501) but is cropped just above the ankle. “These chinos are meant to be worn super-casual like a jean—all in a fun, youthful range of colors,” Sey says.
Some of those colors are decidedly more playful, like pink and jade blue. But they’re available in trusty chino colors like khaki, black, and olive green, too. If you prefer a more casual, worn-in feel, the collection also has garment-dyed chinos—meaning it’s dyed after it’s sewn together instead of before. It’s the finishing touches that make a garment feel lived-in right off the rack.
Perhaps the best part of this new collection is the price: Everything’s under $ 80. They’re the fun, youthful, and pretty damn affordable way to break up your everyday denim rotation. So if you’re not wearing your favorite denim, you now have an option from the makers of the jeans you already love.
The Khalid for Levi’s XX Chino Collection is available now in stores and at levi.com.
Obie Trice better get his lawyer all the Holiday gifts. The Detroit rapper won’t be charged for shooting his girlfriend’s son during an argument.
Back in December 2019, the former Shady Records rapper got into an argument with his girlfriend’s teenaged kid, a weapon was drawn, and according to Trice, the gun accidentally went off.
According to TMZ, the Oakland County Chief Assistant D.A. Paul T. Walton claims there was not enough evidence to bring any charges against the rapper, who maintains he pulled the gun strictly in self-defense. However, he will be charged with misdemeanor possession of an unregistered firearm, and if found guilty he can face up to 90 days in jail for the offense.
Per the initial police report, the incident started after he got into a physical altercation with his girlfriend. The fight lead to the involvement of her 18-year-old son, and the struggle for both of them only elevated from there.
Reportedly, at some point Trice went to his car to retrieve his weapon, and the son tried to take the gun from him. During their tussle, a shot was accidentally discharged, and a bullet went through the kid’s groin. Painful as that surely was, he was well enough to drive himself to the hospital, though.
No word on if Obie Trice and the girlfriend are still together. If they are, their family get togethers will surely be very, very awkward.
Trice’s last album on Shady Records was 2006’s Second Round’s On Me.

Shoppers will soon be able to go Commando in their jeans.
The innerwear brand is launching its first denim collection, available online at wearcommando.com starting Feb. 25 and in stores next month.
But Kerry O’Brien, founder of Commando, isn’t trying to cover anything up: She still loves the foundational pieces that launched the brand in 2003. It’s just that the Vermont-based designer — who flew back and forth between Burlington, Vt., and New York several times during New York Fashion Week — is on the go. She needs more than one outfit to take with her.
“Imagine opening up your closet and finding everything you love to wear,” O’Brien told WWD. “This is what we’re looking for. We want to be able to go into new categories and create the full Commando closet, not just a few pieces. Because our customer is very busy. She has things to do and she doesn’t have time to stop.”
It’s only fitting then that the assortment is expanding.
The denim collection, which ranges in size from XS to XL, comes in three washes: indigo, ash and faded blue. Each pair retails for $ 128. There’s also the addition of the “Fast Track Collection,” which has bras and underwear that
Andrea Lieberman is direct in her design approach and evolution for A.L.C. “I never think it’s a radical departure for us,” she noted. “It’s very focused on our girl, her story, her life, her needs. For me, I definitely feel like it’s a lot about keeping things modern.”
To that end, she focused on classic items meant to round out a covetable wardrobe: Think tailoring, knitwear and jeans cut with a preppy Seventies spirit. She brought in interesting textures with chintz pleated fabrics and drapey, side-ruched corduroy tops tucked into the perfect high-waisted straight-leg jeans. A warm palette of auburn, sumac and earth tones made a roomy coat, furry jacket, sweaters and clingy knits more inviting. A tight pink polo cut with a low neckline maintained the perfect balance of nostalgia, proportion play and attitude. “These are things she puts in her closet,” Lieberman concluded. They fill “a real need in a woman’s wardrobe in a modern, sexy and effortless way.”
Joe’s, the premium denim lifestyle brand, has partnered with writers and actresses Erin and Sara Foster on a capsule collection and ad campaign.
The sisters were lensed in Malibu, Calif., by Mike Rosenthal, and styled by their sister, Jordan Foster. The ads break today.
In addition to appearing as the faces of the brand, which is sold at retailers such as Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and nordstrom.com, as well as Joe’s freestanding boutiques and joejeans.com, Erin and Sara Foster will introduce a capsule collection as part of the spring 2020 line.
The sisters infuse their personal styles under the label “Favorite Daughter for Joe’s.” The collaboration will include each of the sister’s favorite fitting jeans: The Sara, a super high-rise skinny, and The Erin, a high-rise straight. Both fits will be offered in three washes. The collection will include their versions of the “perfect cargo pant,” and a range of additional sportswear. Retail prices range from $ 98 to $ 298 and the capsule will launch in late April.
Suzy Biszantz, chief executive officer of Joe’s Jeans, said this latest partnership is an example of the company’s commitment to evolve the brand with fresh concepts and collaboration.

In tiny Colewell, Pennsylvania, the residents gather at the post office for mail and gossip, while the days pass quiet and serene. That is until news comes that the office is to close, and beloved clerk Nora (a marvelous Karen Allen) is left to fight for her job and reflect on the choices she has made that kept her in Colewell for so many years. Touching, with a hint of melancholy, Tom Quinn’s eloquent film is an ode to small-town life and the quiet emotions that come with nostalgia and memories of the past. Infusing Nora with integrity and grace, Allen captures the intimate and often private struggle that occurs later in life, when unexpected changes occur. Heartened by a great supporting cast including Hannah Gross and Kevin J. O’Connor, Colewell gorgeously captures rural America, while giving space to the beauty of time passing and reflecting on what determines a life well lived.

I know I did!" -Erin Bedford, USA Today bestselling author of Grinding Lightning."Another great story from K.N. Lee that pulls you in from the very beginning. With pirates, dragons, magic and mermaids; this is a book to hit every one of your favorite topics. It was a quick read that leaves you to wanting more. After I finished reading all I was hoping was that there was a second story to come. Like always, K.N. Lee was able to depict a story that you get immersed in, along with you falling in love with the characters."- M.M. Chabot, author."Don't blink. This short-form, high fantasy offering from KN Lee packs so much into it, you should plan to read it twice. Once because you can't put it down, and again to catch everything you miss the first time through. All the emotions are accounted for…now if the author would just give me the answers already. Book II can't hit soon enough." -Savannah Verte, award-winning author of Viva Zapata"K.N. Lee has brought us dragons in a way you've never seen them before. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!"- S.J. Cairns, bestselling author of Soul Discovery"With a gentle touch but real emotions, Half-Blood Dragon uses magic, adventure, love, and betrayal to give us a mirror for our own society. Through the entire book, we meet characters who are stripped of choices solely because of things they can't control about their "blood."I'm really intrigued to see where the next two books take us. There are so many questions we need answers to. I want to know more about the Red Dragon, what Rickard really wants, what's going to happen to Rowen, and will Gavin ever have a moment where he doesn't get on Elian's nerves, LOL! Great job to K.N. Lee and hoping the sequels come soon!"- Cait Reynolds, bestselling author of Downcast.
