Looks from the M Missoni x Yoox collaboration.
M Missoni and Yoox will unveil an exclusive capsule collection on Friday consisting of 11 pieces, the first in a long-term partnership. Titled “Reuse, Remix, Respect,” the capsule promotes a conscious approach, utilizing sustainable and repurposed materials such as sustainable Lurex cut into sweatshirts and jersey T-shirts with colorful graphics, FSC viscose fashioned into a black jumpsuit, and Missoni-stock raschel serving as appliqué on a sweatshirt. The collection is not entirely sustainable, and includes dresses, skirts and trousers in reimagined signature chevron patterns. Prices range from $ 75 to $ 360.
This marks the first collaboration from Margherita Maccapani Missoni as creative director of M Missoni, who noted the importance of social responsibility, especially given the COVID-19 crisis: “Both M Missoni and Yoox are committed to sustainability initiatives and developments in the industry. We aim to build evergreen relationships with projects which, like ours, respect communities and share values.” She continued by saying “the crisis is affecting our daily lives and the habits of almost everyone, but is also an opportunity to reassess our values, to get in touch with our real needs and realize our fortunes, to slow down and to change our minds.”
SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT: Loewe is not letting the coronavirus crisis derail the launch of its latest Paula’s Ibiza capsule collection.
Artistic director Jonathan Anderson acknowledged the awkward timing of the annual line, now in its fourth edition, but hoped the rave-inspired clothes and accessories — and a matching new fragrance for men and women — would help lift spirits during this challenging period.
“I know this is not exactly the ideal time to launch products, but this is a project all the craftspeople at Loewe have been lovingly working on for some time, giving life to objects that are exquisitely lively and optimistic — as craft always is,” he said in a statement.
“This is a happy, undeniably escapist collection, conveyed through colorful and energetic images, and I thought it might cheer you up,” Anderson continued. “I hope you and your family are safe,” he concluded.

As reported, the Spanish luxury house, which is owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, will donate a portion of the proceeds from the collection to educational projects, starting with an initial gift of 500,000 euros.

Inaugurating “Black-ish” producer Kenya Barris’ deal with Netflix, “#blackAF” is as messy as its title — an unwieldy, self-indulgent show in which Barris, much like Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” plays a version of himself. It’s both a tired concept and an awkwardly constructed one, something that cute hashtags and the occasional clever Hollywood/L.A. reference can’t fix.

North West is following in her famous father’s footsteps.
The six-year-old took the runway at Kanye West’s surprise Yeezy Season 8 runway show on Monday during Paris Fashion Week, performing as models made their walks.
North West rapped against an auto-tuned beat, repeating lines like “yeah, cool, cute,” and “What are those?” as well as a few “woahs” as the fashion crowd cheered her on.
She was later joined by her dad, who smiled proudly at her as she continued performing. While this is her debut performance, she has routinely joined her dad at his regular Sunday Service gatherings, with videos of her dancing and singing going viral.

PARIS — This time last year, Kenneth Ize was preparing to showcase his work in Paris as one of the semifinalists of the LVMH Prize for Young Designers. Twelve months on, he’s gearing up for his first runway show in the French capital, to be held on the opening day of Paris Fashion Week.
“I wasn’t expecting this to come that soon, so it’s just an amazing journey,” marveled the Nigerian designer, who made it to the finals of the LVMH Prize. Though he didn’t leave with an award, the connections he made in Paris have opened many doors, with Ize’s retail network doubling to 18 stores for the spring 2020 season.
Having shown at Arise Fashion Week last April, he’s ready to bring his gender-fluid collection to a bigger stage, with the support of Naomi Campbell, who co-owns the fashion week held in Lagos. The British model is expected at the Paris show, to be held at the Palais de Tokyo on Feb. 24, though whether she will model for Ize again, or sit in the front row, is undecided.
“I just need to grow this brand and I need to open it to investors,” Ize said of his decision to show in
M Missoni is partnering with Los Angeles-based cannabis brand Pure Beauty to debut custom cannabis cigarettes in the fashion brand’s iconic zigzag patterns. The THC-containing pre-rolls will debut during M Missoni’s Feb. 4 event at L.A. landmark Pink’s Hot Dogs.
Although CBD products have been a mainstay in fashion show gift bags and at events for several seasons, this partnership on psychoactive THC products is the first of its kind between a luxury fashion house and a cannabis brand. Pure Beauty is known for its stylish aesthetic; there’s a whimsical set of eyeballs on each joint, and the cigarette-style boxes are Millennial pink. The colorful M Missoni versions will be available for purchase for a limited time at select dispensaries in California.
In a nod to creative director Margherita Missoni’s inaugural show in September, which featured a tram ride through the streets of Milan, the fall 2020 show will feature a Missoni-branded trolley transporting guests and M Missoni-clad models through the streets of L.A. to a showcase at Pink’s.
“Margherita Missoni was attracted to showing in L.A. because, ‘It’s a place where fashion is not constrained by the rules of the system and is positively influenced by different lifestyles and passions.’ Pure Beauty
Morgan Curtis and Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor were set up at New York’s Cafe Cluny.
The pair, fixtures in the fashion and music social scene — Curtis, the daughter of Jill Stuart and a designer in her own right, and de Cadenet Taylor, the daughter of Duran Duran bassist John Taylor, as well as a model, DJ and mental health advocate — had met before, but only in passing. They also had a handful of mutual friends between New York and Los Angeles. It wasn’t until the West Village encounter, however, that the two women really got to know one another.
“When we were introduced, we just instantly fell in love with each other,” Curtis, founder and designer of luxury intimates brand Morgan Lane, told WWD. “That got me really excited to do a collab. She’s a really good muse for the brand. And I love her body and I love how excited she gets about lingerie. She was just so passionate about it.”
An eye mask in the Atlanta de Cadenet x Morgan Lane collection reads, “Don’t wake the beast.”
De Cadenet Taylor was equally enamored.
“I’ve been a fan of the brand for so long,” said de Cadenet Taylor, who has previously done

TORONTO — When Ashley Freeborn and her mother Teresa Freeborn cofounded the Vancouver design brand Smash + Tess in 2014 they began what they call a “romper revolution.”
“People ask us if we are ath-leisurewear or loungewear, but what we have created is a new category of ‘everywear’ clothing, which we began by reimagining the romper and ensuring that women of all shapes and sizes could wear it well,” said Ashley Freeborn, the company’s managing director.
“They can wear this romper in bed, in the boardroom or on a plane without ever sacrificing style for comfort. But it’s not Victoria Secret. It’s easy dressing for busy women that takes them from the sheets to the streets and beyond,” Freeborn added.
Now the Canadian label — which has been spotted on Hilary Duff, Selma Blair, Kristen Bell and Jenna Dewan — has partnered with award-winning American journalist, author and reality TV celebrity Carole Radziwill to create a collection of size-inclusive basics that reflect both the brand’s “real-life” ethos and the style of the “Real Housewives of New York City” star.
Launching worldwide Jan. 15, the Carole Radziwill x Smash + Tess Collection brings a distinctive New York vibe to its sustainably crafted lineup, which includes

SHANGHAI – Saint Laurent will launch the fifth edition of its ongoing Self project here this week, this time inviting Hong Kong’s best-known film director Wong Kar Wai and the acclaimed photographer Wing Shya to co-create a film.
The series, launched a year ago, sees Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello work with various creative figures to capture different aspects of the Saint Laurent personality through art and social commentary. Previous projects have partnered with Daido Moriyama, Vanessa Beecroft, Bret Easton Ellis, and Gaspar Noé.
This latest rendition comes in the format of a film titled “A Night in Shanghai” and depicts the model Ju Xiaowen walking on a wire.
It “is a story about the introspective research of ourself, which starts from breaking the balance,” according to the brand.
A 15-second trailer was released in anticipation of its unveiling later this week. The short movie will be screened at Yuz Museum in Shanghai, accessible to the public from Nov. 22 to Nov. 24.
While the most recent edition of Saint Laurent’s Self project was a 50-minute film directed by Gaspar Noé, the full work this time is much shorter with a duration just over three minutes.

Unlike most fashion company founders, Joss Sackler took her front row seat at the first LBV runway show with two security guards in tow.
The two bulky men, like six or so others stationed on the Bowery Terrace, kept a watchful eye on the crowd and the catwalk. Before the show started, four of them greeted guests outdoors on the sidewalk. The security detail seemed substantial given the relatively compact crowd of 100 or so. Why the concern? Joss is married to David Sackler, whose family owns Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin. In recent months, consumers have rallied against and, in some instances, sued the prescription drug company for its hand in the opioid crisis, and many have called on cultural institutions supported by the Sackler Foundation and the family’s trust to refuse grants, as was the case with London’s National Portrait Gallery. After its Fifth Avenue location was swarmed with protestors earlier this year, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum said it will not accept future donations from the London-based Sackler Trust. Other institutions have also followed suit.
After the debut of LBV’s ready-to-wear collection Monday afternoon, the LBV founder was only interested in discussing the runway. “I can’t address the
Lil Nas Xhas done his part to keep the interest on whatever musical endeavors he has in the can, this by way of his savvy and humorous use of social media. On Saturday (June 15), the viral star has announced his debut EP.
X dropped the cover for his upcoming EP 7, which is set to drop on June 21. For part of the week, the Atlanta artist has been teasing that the project was on its way and an announcement was impending.
Details for the EP is set but it is dropping on Columbia Records. Check out the cover image below.
Count soccer superstar Lionel Messi as the latest celebrity to launch an apparel collection.
The Argentine athlete, who captains both FC Barcelona and the Argentina national team, has partnered with MGO, a brand portfolio company whose chief creative officer is Tommy Hilfiger’s sister, Ginny Hilfiger, to create Messi.
The premium lifestyle brand with “a sporty edge” will be primarily men’s wear but will include a few women’s tops as well, according to Hilfiger.
The line will launch in July on a global e-commerce site called The Messi Store that will offer teasers of product. A full rollout will begin in August.
Hilfiger said new product will be released each week, but on a limited basis to create “a get-it-before-it’s-gone tactic,” she said. If some pieces become staples, they will be produced in larger quantities.
Hilfiger said there will also be some items in the mix that will be autographed by Messi “so the lucky customer will get a signed Leo piece,” she said.
In mid-September, the brand will partner with Savile Row tailor Richard James as well as the English shoe brand Tricker’s for a small capsule that will be offered at Santa Eulalia, a high-end specialty store in Barcelona that was established in 1843.
World, meet Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the latest addition to the British royal family. He was born on May 6, but his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (better known as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle) revealed his name today at St. George’s Hall in Windsor Castle, the BBC reports. Shortly afterward, the announcement was made on the couple’s official Instagram page.
According to the BBC, young Archie is seventh in line for the throne, but his parents chose not to give him an official royal title. Instead, he’ll go by the less formal moniker of Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor. The name Archie came as something of a surprise, since it has no known connections with any other member of the royal family. While introducing him to members of the press earlier today, new parents Prince Harry and Meghan reflected on the joys of getting to know their newborn son.
“He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm,” Meghan told the BBC. “He’s been the dream.”
“I don’t know who he gets that from,” Prince Harry joked.
While their sleeping baby was certainly the main event today, the Duke and Duchess both won praise for their stylish outfits. Many were impressed with Meghan’s white dress, which didn’t hide her postpartum baby bump, CNN reports. Prince Harry was no slouch either, appearing before the cameras in a sharp light grey suit and navy blue tie.
In fact, that lighter color is a perfect shade to try on this spring and summer. Want to get Prince Harry’s look? Scroll down for your shopping list.

NEW YORK CALLING: Savile Row tailor Ozwald Boateng will hit New York on May 5 with an immersive fashion experience at the Apollo theater in Harlem, showcasing the brand’s women’s collection.
The show will be a celebration of culture, diversity, music, history and fashion and mark the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance, “starting with a short film on Africanism, and guiding us into the future of artificial intelligence,” according to the company.
VIPs within sports and entertainment are expected to appear at the former Givenchy designer’s runway show, the brand added.
Boateng, whose parents immigrated to the U.K. in the Fifties, was the youngest designer of African descent to open a business on London’s Savile Row. He founded his company in 1995, and was part of a new bespoke movement that catapulted him to international recognition.
Known for his bright flashes of color and twist on classic British tailoring, his brand offers in-store bespoke services as well as ready-to-wear men’s wear and items such as ties, shirts and knitwear.
This weekend, Fred Segal will unveil its third L.A.-area store in Malibu, a 4,000-square-foot, sun-filled shop that is designed to be a beacon of SoCal style, down to the branded beach buggy parked outside. Never mind that Fred Segal the man is long retired, and that most of the clothing in the new store bearing his name isn’t even from here. Revealed just last week, the retail chain’s third new owner in seven years is counting on the fact that the name has a life of its own, conjuring palm trees, sunsets and surf — at least in its stores on the other side of the world.
For some in L.A., the Fred Segal name conjures only memories. Segal ushered in L.A.’s first designer jeans craze in the Sixties, creating a denim bar concept that welcomed The Beatles, Bob Dylan and the Jackson 5, then pioneered the shop-in-shop phenomenon at his retail centers on Melrose Avenue and later in Santa Monica. When the ivy-covered Melrose Avenue landmark was the temple of cool in the Eighties and Nineties, it was name-checked in films such as “Clueless,” “Legally Blonde” and “Less Than Zero,” and became the de-facto wardrobe department for such influential TV

MILAN — Fendi has some new BFFs.
The Rome-based luxury company is launching another series of episodes to celebrate the new Baguette, relaunched for spring/summer 2019, hinging on the concept of friendship — with one special cameo by a longtime friend of the house: Sarah Jessica Parker.
The #BaguetteFriendsForever campaign, which will be released on Fendi’s social networks starting Jan. 23, follows last year’s #MeandMyPeekaboo project that marked the 10th anniversary of the brand’s Peekaboo bags. That campaign was first fronted by Silvia Venturini Fendi and her daughters Delfina Delettrez Fendi and Leonetta Luciano Fendi, followed by Kris Jenner, her daughter Kim Kardashian and her granddaughter North West, among others.
First designed in 1997 by Venturini Fendi, the Baguette is now represented in slightly new proportions with a soft F logo on embossed leather in pastel colors or fabrics ranging from denim to embroidered jacquard. “The Baguette never really went away and in time it has become a classic,” said Venturini Fendi, remarking on the increased request for “content and fashion.”
The designer noted that younger customers have also started to buy the Baguette. “All that has history is very attractive to them, and this style has expressed a series of concepts, it epitomizes the manifesto of
Sheryl Lowe has offered female consumers her surf culture-meets-rock ‘n’ roll jewelry for nearly a dozen years, and now the Southern California jeweler is launching her first men’s line, Mr. Lowe. Inspired by her husband, award-winning actor Rob Lowe, and the couple’s two sons, Matthew and John Owen, the line is both wearable and unabashedly masculine with some “bling appeal.”

Mr. Lowe comprises neck chains, bracelets, wrist cuffs and rings. Incorporating global cultural influences and spiritual symbols, the collection is handcrafted in Lowe’s Santa Barbara studio from an array of materials such as sterling silver, sandalwood, black coral, hematite and pyrite, along with beads, stones, crystals and pavé diamonds.

“I created Mr. Lowe for different types of men — the outdoorsman, adventure seeker, traveler, artist, and corporate cool guy,” explained Sheryl Lowe, whose signature style comes through Mr. Lowe with stackable layers creating a classic-meets-edgy look. “I love the balance of mixing metals and gemstones with natural wood, earthy African designs and shell beads. It brings out the cool in every guy.”
“I love my stacks of Mr. Lowe bracelets. They are my uniform; I wear them every day,” said Rob Lowe, whose favorite items also
PARIS — Now that the social media furor has died down and order books have been filled, what did retailers really think of Hedi Slimane’s debut collection for Celine?
Reached directly after the show, which took place on Sept. 28, buyers were largely positive in their assessments — with some exceptions and caveats. Indeed, some major stores declined to comment for fear of reprisals, while others reserved full judgment until they saw what was in the showroom.
In the run-up to the first Slimane-designed handbags arriving in stores today, retailers reappraised the commercial potential of the collection, including the vast range of bags, shoes and accessories that he presented in the showroom. And while some are still mourning the era of Phoebe Philo — and others pointed to a risk of overlap with his former label, Saint Laurent — the majority are confident that the Slimane era will spell sales growth.
“I personally loved Celine,” said Jeffrey Kalinsky, designer fashion director at Nordstrom. “When I’m in a showroom and love something, I get manically overstimulated. I get kind of a rush. That happened in the way that I felt with every fiber of my being that this would be a great thing for us.”

She’s been a mainstay on television and in fashion for more than a decade, and now Nicole Richie is taking on shoppable video. The hard-to-crack concept might finally be ready to take off with the trifecta of technology, distribution and celebrity style influencer coming together in a perfect storm.
Now With, a new branded content network that produces “Style Now With” featuring Richie, has found a home on Yahoo Lifestyle, which is part of mobile giant Verizon’s content arm. Together with AOL, Ryot, Tumblr and HuffPost, the network of sites, known as Oath, garners more than a billion eyeballs.
The Now With network is the brainchild of celebrity branding expert Nicole Winnaman, who founded the company Working Sundays with celebrity wrangler Ashlee Margolis of The A List and manufacturer Twila True of True Family Enterprises.
In time, Now With will roll out not just style, but also cooking, travel, design and pet pillars, which will live on Oath’s various digital platforms.

On Tuesday night, LeBron James made his home debut for the Lakers in a preseason game against the Nuggets. The superstar gave fans a glimpse of what’s to come this season with several exciting plays in the first half. www.espn.com – TOP
We have a feeling the purple and gold will be represented well by LeBron James. His first game as a Los Angeles Laker was a success.
On Sunday, September 30 Los Angeles squared off against Denver in their preseason opener at the Staples Center. From the beginning of the game ‘Bron made it clear he wants prime billing on The Lake Show.
As ESPN noted his first official contribution to the team came in the form of a no-look assist bounce pass to Brandon Ingram which led to a slam dunk. James’ first points were also in superstar fashion as he sank a three-pointer from 26 feet away. He finished the night with nine points, three assists, and three rebounds.
The three-time champion took to Instagram to commemorate his first outing on the new team. “Can’t even front, it’s just felt different! Goosebumps! #striveforgreatness#thekidfromakron“.
He went on to detail his excitement in a post-game interview. “It always feels different for me anytime you change uniforms,” he explained. “It felt different when I changed from a St. Vincent-St. Mary jersey to a Cavs jersey, from a Cavs jersey to a Heat jersey, back to a Cavs jersey and now being a Laker. So, it definitely feels different, and it’ll take a little bit of time getting used to.”
The Lakers play their first official game of the 2018-2019 NBA season on October 18 against the Portland Trailblazers. Their opener is at The Staples Center on Oct. 20 against the Houston Rockets.
PARTY FAITHFUL: The front row at Hedi Slimane’s show for Celine was filled with longtime friends of the designer, with Karl Lagerfeld, Catherine Deneuve, Lou Doillon, Joséphine de La Baume, Alexa Chung and Mark Ronson joining a legion of musicians at the event, held in a tent in front of the Hôtel des Invalides on Friday.
While the dark venue provided good cover for many celebrities in attendance, there was no missing Lady Gaga, who stood in the center of a throng of flashing cameras with Lagerfeld. The singer provided the first glimpse of Slimane’s new Celine designs when she was seen carrying the 16 handbag on Instagram on Aug. 30.
Gaga, wearing an Alaïa snakeskin trenchcoat, was on a break from promoting her new movie “A Star Is Born” following its U.K. premiere on Thursday. Ronson helped to write the track “Shallow,” in which she sings a duet with her costar Bradley Cooper.
Sitting opposite her was Alex Kapranos, lead singer of Franz Ferdinand, who has worn Slimane’s creations since the designer was at Dior Homme.
“Hedi’s always been a good friend to the musicians all around the world and we all love him as well — he’s a great guy. Personally speaking,
LONDON — Camille Charrière has been a pioneer of blogging platforms and social media from the get-go. But as the influencer market becomes more and more saturated, she has been experimenting with ways to cultivate her voice and shine a spotlight on behind-the-scenes stories that often get forgotten in the fast-paced world of Instagram.
Her first project came in the form of the podcast “Fashion No Filter,” hosted alongside the writer and fellow influencer Monica Ainley. The duo readily took on the challenge of producing in-depth discussions about fashion by stripping away the visuals and encouraging their listeners to flex their imagination muscles. The result was a series of humorous audios that discussed topics ranging from sustainability to the street-style phenomenon and feminism, with the likes of Roksanda Ilincic, Caroline de Maigret and Chloé president Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye taking part.
Building on the success of the podcast, Ainley and Charrière went on to produce a documentary with French TV channel Paris Premier that will make its debut on Sunday and examine all things style and fashion through a tongue-in-cheek compare-and-contrast exercise of the British and French fashion capitals.
Here Charrière, who is already plotting season two of “Fashion No Filter” and more
Eco-chic lipstick line La Bouche Rouge is landing in the U.S. via The Webster.
An exclusive lipstick shade of pink designed by The Webster founder Laure Hériard Dubreuil will debut at the trend-setting Miami-based concept shop’s SoHo location on Monday.
The grapefruit hue matches the pink tones consistent with The Webster’s branding aesthetic and signature pink flamingo-emblazoned logo, but is meant to adjust to the wearer’s pH levels, imparting only a sheer tint on the lips. It was customized using La Bouche Rouge’s patented technology that uses micronized pigments and an artificial-intelligence algorithm to match shades found in objects or photos — including those found on a client’s smartphone.
La Bouche Rouge is a sustainable luxury cosmetics brand founded by L’Oréal veteran Nicolas Gerlier. Paris-based Gerlier launched the line — it now consists of 12 lipsticks — in France in October with the support of LVMH’s cosmetology research division. Formulations are clean, containing no endocrine-disrupting ingredients or allergens, and each tube comes in a refillable, plastic-free capsule made of tanned calfskin leather. Ezra Petronio serves as creative director.
It is not often that Dubreuil stocks a beauty brand in one of her stores. “I like to do it when it has a lot of meaning to

MILAN IN LOVE: On Sept. 20, Alberta Ferretti will open a new shops-in-shop at La Rinascente‘s department store in Milan, located on the third floor. To celebrate the unit, Ferretti created an exclusive collection of crewnecks.
The range of four different cashmere and wool blend sweaters features a heart-shaped intarsia on the front with a handwritten slogan that says “Innamorati a Milano,” or “Fall in Love in Milan.”
Similarly to the eye-catching color combinations of Ferretti’s “Rainbow Week” sweaters, the new lineup of knitwear will be available in mélange gray with pink lettering, red with ivory lettering, black with red and pink with mint green.
Retailing at 440 euros, the collection will be sold in limited quantities, exclusively at La Rinascente, starting Sept. 20.
Most recently, the Alberta Ferretti “Rainbow Week” sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 and limited-edition collection, have been sported by the likes of Isabeli Fontana and Izabel Goulard in Venice, on the red carpet of the city’s international Film Festival.

IT’S A FIRST: Eva Longoria, Rosario Dawson and Alysia Reiner are part of the batch of well-known newcomers that will be showing during next month’s New York Fashion Week.
They will be part of Kia STYLE360’s roster at Metropolitan West, which is located at 639 West 46th Street where live-streaming the shows, 360-degree virtual reality broadcasts and Facebook Live will all be part of the deal. Staring things off on Sept. 11, will be Studio 189 by Dawson and Abrima Erwiah. The proactive duo are trying to use artisanal sustainable fashion as an agent for social change.

BABATON 1-01: Aritzia’s in-house studio collection Babaton, known for its minimalist take on basic wardrobe essentials and sold exclusively at the retailer, is launching a more upscale companion. The 1–01 Babaton collection, which debuts for winter with 11 pieces, is marked by more luxurious Japanese fabrics and architectural, modernist proportions, with some dresses and suits taking cues from Nineties minimalism.
“We believe that every woman should be able to have the best fashion of the season — made from the highest quality fabrics in the world, with the utmost care and precision — at an accessible price point,” Oliver Walsh, the retailer’s chief marketing officer, told WWD. “We heard the desire for a studio collection that explores cutting-edge fabrications and innovative proportions. The curated selection of limited-edition pieces that makes up 1–01 Babaton is our answer to that need. It’s an elevated, considered line for a sophisticated, modern woman.”
Priced from $ 195 to $ 495, the collection launches exclusively at Aritzia stores and online at aritzia.com on Tuesday.

Jordan McGraw and his band Hundred Handed released their debut single today, “Love Me Like The Weekend.” The new pop rock band’s sound is the product of the fun seeking, crazy minds of its three members Jordan McGraw (vocals/guitar), Drew Langan (drums) and Matt Black (bass). The three friends set out to recapture the excitement of being in your first band with the experience they captured touring the world on the road that led them to Hundred Handed.
Says McGraw, who is Dr. Phil’s son, “We were inspired by a fresh start here with our new band, Hundred Handed. The song is about never taking yourself too seriously … Whether you’re an adult pretending to sneak out of your parents’ house to getting into trouble, or a high school kid banging their head against the desk until Saturday comes. Every day should have a little bit of Saturday in it. We are here to make the weekend permanent!”
“Love Me Like The Weekend” is now available on iTunes and all digital platforms. It’s the first single from the L.A. based band’s forthcoming debut album co-produced by Hundred Handed and Eddie Jackson; also collaborating with songwriter/producer Mike Green (Paramore, 5 Seconds of Summer) and songwriter The Golden Hippie.
Coldplay’s latest LP Ghost Stories just came out last year, but they’ve announced that they’re already working on their next one — reportedly titled A Head Full of Dreams.
