Inspired by Shakespeare and innocent feelings of seduction, Kelly Faetanini’s “dark romance” reference is evidenced in a spring 2018 collection that balances hints of black against shades of barely-there blush.

“[For spring 2018,] we are mixing cotton Guipures over nude silk charmeuse linings and adding in hints of color, a whisper of blush and breath of blue,” says Theia’s creative director Don O’Neill. “Our elegant beaded gowns continue to be a focus, featuring lots of pearl details.”

British Black

Everyone wants that premier job, and Edward Enninful just scored it!! Conde Nast has named Edward Enniful the new editor-in-chief of British Vogue after the recent departure of Alexandra Shulman. Shulman tenure at British Vogue lasted for 25 years.

Enniful’s appointment makes him the second man and first person of African ancestry to hold the title of editor-in-chief at any Vogue magazine. Since 2011, Enniful had been the creative director of W Magazine.

“By virtue of his talent and experience, Edward is supremely prepared to assume the responsibility of British Vogue,” added Conde Nast International Chairman and Chief Executive Jonathan Newhouse. And Newhouse has called Enninful, “an influential figure in the communities of fashion, Hollywood and music which shape the cultural zeitgeist.”

Enniful will start his new position at British Vogue on August 1.

Thin is in?

When is thin too thin? Apparently, when an extremely thin model appeared in an ad for the UK’s Selfridges department store’s marketing email in January of this year. The marketing email shows a models standing sideways in a long, sleeveless dress.

There was major outcry in the UK over the model’s thinness, with consumers and several British authorities begging Selfridge to remove the ad. However, Selfridges contended that the model was weight appropriate and that ad was designed to focus on the garment, not the model. “We considered most people, including young children and women, would interpret the ad as focusing on the design and fit of the dress, rather than on desirable body image,” explained Selfridges.

UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) agreed with Selfridges after a thorough investigation of the incident. The ASA stated that they did not consider the model to be “significantly underweight.”

Conflicting Ivanka figures

Despite rallying cries against President Trump, Ivanka Trumps’ labels sales increased by 61%, well that is in 2016. G-III Apparel Group, which manufactures and sells Ivanka’s clothing labels recently revealed that between February 2016 and January 2017 Ivanka Trump’s brands generated revenue of $47.3 million compared to $29.4 million in the previous yearly cycle.

G-III Apparel contends that Ivanka Trump’s labels’ increase in sales contributed to the company’s rise in operating income. This claim goes against the statement issued by Nordstrom’s earlier this year, explaining that Ivanka Trump’s clothing and accessories were pulled from the store because of lagging sales.

Trumped out

It was only a matter of time that Trump Models would be a thing of the past. Fashion insiders have been wagging their tongues for several months that Trump Models would go the way of Never, Neverland.

With iconic supermodels Pat Cleveland and Carmen Dell’Orefice leaving the fold, fashion pundits could see the writing on the wall. In its 18-year history, Trump Models only achieved modest success, though it helped launch the careers of Steven Meisel favorite Holly-May Saker, and Sports Illustrated Swimwear star Mia Kang. However, when top agency bookers defected to start their own model management companies—Iconic Focus and Anti Management—the agency’s revenue declined steeply.

Add to those series of events, Donald Trump’s low rating in the polls with an administration filled with resignations, scandals and verbal faux pas,’ the president’s name association was too much for the modeling agency’s revenue growth. Result, closing shop!!

Editors’ Pick: Persaman New York’s Fall 2017 Handbags

Persaman_Handbags_Fall_2017Everyone is looking for balance in life. From the seeming balance between family life and career, to the balance and equality of the sexes to balance in finances and spirituality, balance is necessary to live the good life.

The balance between what we mere humans call good and evil is that explainable thing that balances out the cosmos. With all that said, balance can also be interpreted as the freedom to express all aspects of one’s personality. That balance can also be found in fashion, a balance that often bridges the gap between polar opposites. The worlds were sophistication meets whimsy, chicness is paired with a street style sensibility, and there is a marriage of traditional classics and modern charm.

Persaman New York Fall 2017 Men's Bags

Persaman New York Fall 2017 Men’s Bags

All these fashionable aspects are capsulized in Persaman New York new fall 2017 handbag collection. Staying true to Persaman’s strong design ethos, the fall 2017 collection exuberates class, style and a touch of playfulness. The collection, inspired by the modern-day bohemian, features the soft hues of the seasons—burgundy, squash yellow, and pumpkin orange—juxtaposed with intricate metal work used throughout each bag. Persaman New York found its muse for this collection through travel, entertainment and the arts; this inspiration lead the brand to enlist the work of local artisans to create the handmade details that the Persaman customer truly adores.

Twenty years after being founded in New York City, Persaman New York remains a lifestyle brand and a destination for consumers that want modern bohemian clothing, accessories, home and gifts that reflect their own lives, passions from their homes, arts, travel and entertainment. With a belief in sustainable products, Persaman New York personally supervises and hires local artisans who work together to handcraft a lot of the brand’s products.

For fall 2017, Persaman New York has found that delicate balance between craftsmanship, sophisticated whimsy, and market viability. And consumers all the better for it!!

Fashion Reverie Spotlight: Joan Juliet Buck’s “The Price of Illusion”

Downloads364“All the world’s a stage. And all the men and women merely players; they have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts … –“As You Like It” William Shakespeare

Joan Juliet Buck’s stage for almost her entire lifetime has been her ability to eloquently express her emotions through words. From being an actor, an essayist, a novelist, and an editor-in-chief, Buck has proven time and time again that she is one of those rare individuals that can use many platforms and stages to demonstrate her talent.

In her new memoir “The Price of Illusion: A Memoir,” Buck brilliantly details the circuitous and uncanny incidents in her life. And this fully realized life, though its wanderings, resettlements, and final denouement is played against the backdrop of fashion, film, theatre and eccentric characters. Joan Juliet Buck herself being the most vivid and unpredictable character of any in the memoir.

Fashion Reverie was graced with the incredible opportunity to interview Joan Juliet Buck a few weeks after the release of “The Price of Illusion: A Memoir.” And as in her memoir , this interview is revelatory.

Fashion Reverie: Why title your memoir “The Price of Illusion”?

Joan Juliet Buck: It was the title that fit the story. I didn’t know what the story would be until I finished every single draft of the book. When I finished every single draft—and there must have been about 15 drafts—I had an idea that there had been a lot of illusion in my life, and thus the title.

FR: What prompted you to write this memoir at this point in your life?

Joan Juliet Buck: Well, I’m getting on in age. When I reached the age of 62, I started looking back on my life and what I’ve accomplished. And when I looked back at my life, nothing added up. A lot of things that happened in my life if I tried to tell those things in a work of fiction it would seem like a round of hallucinations. So, I realized, first of all, I am only thinking clearly when I am typing or writing in my diary. I needed to think about every thing that had happened, and make sense of it.

When I started my book I started with some incidents that had happened much later in my life. I stared with a terrible incident that happened while I was on holiday with this guy I thought would be my Prince Charming. That was first thing I had to write about because I had to examine what was going on with me at the time.  I had to figure out that story, living in a house with people I didn’t know with a man I didn’t like, holding the corpse of a man who was my host on my knees. That was something I needed to figure out.

After that, I decided to go back to the beginning because the one book that everyone wanted me to write about was my time as editor-in-chief at French Vogue and funnel that knowledge into a book about French couture. Which is something I have never been interested in writing about. (I had written two novels in the 1980s that didn’t sell that well.)

I had to figure out how I ended up at French Vogue in a job in which I was miscast. And when I started writing about that experience, I began to understand that if it had not been for an illusion in Hollywood that began before I was born and continued after I was born—that Communists were running the movie industry, an illusion held by Senator Joseph McCarthy—my parents would not have moved to Paris when I was a young child. Not that my parents were Communists, but it was a ridiculous situation in Hollywood at that time. Everything that happened to me, good, bad or indifferent, all that comes from that fact that I grew up in Paris and the delusion that my parents were Communists and had to become expatriates.

And that is the big price of illusion and things you have to give up for that. And all the other illusions including being very happy to create the illusion for my father after my mother’s death, and making him feel that everything he lost, he had not lost, bringing him to live with me in Paris, and doting on him and making him feel as though he had never lost anything, when in fact, he had.

Joan_Juliet_BuckFR: As a child you moved around a lot from Los Angeles, to Paris, London, and Milan. And from what I’ve read in this book, there were some poignant celebratory times and some times that were isolating and lonely. Through all this meandering what stands out most was your attempt at finding your place in the world, finding out who you are and finding your truth as home. Why do feel that you have that sense of instability as a child, always searching for home. And have you found that now?

Joan Juliet Buck: My home is this book. I made my home out of writing this book. I realized in doing this book what degree I am a wanderer. My parents were wanderers and I’m a wanderer. Wanderers have a lot of textiles they can fold up and stick on the walls and floors of the next place they are going to be and call it home.

FR: You have worked as an actor, an essayist, a novelist, a fashion editor-in-chief, and a film critic. Which role or job do you like best, and why?

Joan Juliet Buck: I like acting because I get to play with others. I like being a movie critic because I liked explaining what I saw to other people. I love writing the essays I do for Harper’s Bazaar because they are improvisations and I never know what I am going to write, so it’s a form of acting. The one job that was kind of painful was being editor-in-chief. There were so many things to deal with in one day. I remember worrying about people wanting other peoples’ parking spaces.

FR: You had written for several American and international publications before you became editor-in-chief at French Vogue or Paris Vogue. You did solicit the position, but why do you think Jonathan Newhouse hired you for the position?

Joan Juliet Buck: Probably, because I had been associated with one Vogue or another for over twenty years. I was reliable, a hard worker, also French is my first language. I was one of them, but also one of the other guys

Collages1251

FR: You detail in the book that Americans were elated with you being awarded editor-in-chief at French Vogue, but the French were perplexed. Why?

Joan Juliet Buck: My friend Clara called up and said, “I am speechless.” That was like screaming what the f**k on the phone. The people who knew me knew that I was not an executive, I was not career minded, I was not someone who worked in an office. I was this dreamy, slightly eccentric person who walked barefoot every day and read a lot of books. That is not the profile of someone is the editor-in-chief of a fashion magazine.

FR: While at French Vogue from 1994–2000, you changed the look of the magazine with weightier content and a different approach to editorial content, as well as significantly increasing circulation, yet Newhouse dismissed you, why?

Joan Juliet Buck: The first few years were glorious and the circulation went up forty percent; that was my triumph, triumph, triumph!! At that time, I was magic and could do no wrong. But, those types of runs end for everyone. Then, later the circulation of French Vogue dipped.

Essentially, someone told Jonathan Newhouse something about me. He was told I was drug addict. I don’t know who told him that. I don’t even know what type of drug I was supposed to be addicted to!! When there is a rumor about you, you don’t actually know what the rumor is because people are talking about you behind your back.

So, there was rumor, there was a plot and I was really unaware of what was going on. I was particularly venerable because at the time I had spent the summer with a man I thought was my Prince Charming and his best friend had ended up dead in my arms through a totally random chance.  That had put me in a traumatic state. I came back to work stammering and people started to suspect drug use. All those incidents and situations happened around the same time, so I was let go.

FR: Is the character Jacqueline Follet in “The Devil Wears Prada” a composite of you or based on you?

Joan Juliet Buck: I have no idea because I have no memory of Lauren Weisberger.  I wasn’t at American Vogue when she was Anna Wintour’s assistant. When I saw the movie I thought, “Huh, that’s weird, it’s the editor-in-chief of French Vogue who wanted Anna Wintour’s character’s job. But is it me or Carrie Roitfeld, I don’t know?

FR: What do you want readers to get from this phenomenal memoir?

Joan Juliet Buck: I readers to laugh, cry, recognize themselves and the people they love and the people they haven’t loved. I want them to see their whole lives in this book. I am hearing from people that they are seeing themselves in this book and that makes me really happy.

FR: What’s next for you?

Joan Juliet Buck: I have started something that I am very excited about that I cannot talk about quite yet. I have a simple life, I live in the country, I write and every once in a while I act. I performed in two plays this past winter. So, what’s next is more writing, more acting and springtime.

“The Price of Illusion: A Memoir” is published by Atria Books.

Power to the people

When is enough, enough? Apparently, enough is enough when commercial products co-opt social movements in order to sell consumers their products.

Such is the case with the new Pepsi commercial that uses Black Lives Matter protest iconography to sell Pepsi with Supermodel Kendall Jenner offering riot gear-less police a peace pipe–offering of a can of Pepsi. The recent Pepsi commercial also featured a Muslim reporter in a hijab recording the protest, smiling approvingly as the cop accepted the Pepsi peace offering.

Due to overwhelming consumer outrage, Pepsi has pulled the controversial commercial.  Consumers tweeted “THIS AD IS TRASH.” “If I had carried Pepsi, I guess I never would have gotten arrested. Who knew?” Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson tweeted.

“Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding,” the company said in a statement. “Clearly we missed the mark, and we apologize. We did not intend to make light of any serious issue. We are removing the content and halting any further rollout.”

Dr. Boyce Watkins, a social commentator and author, had called that ad “arguably the most racist commercial in history.” (Thomas Reuter, 2017)

Bye, bye Jenna

On the heels of dwindling sales and a $2 billion debt load, iconic fashion icon, Jenna Lyons, is leaving her post at J. Crew as president and creative director. Lyons tenure at J. Crew lasted 26 years. Lyons will stay on at J. Crew as a creative advisor through December 2017.

“She has made many significant contributions to J.Crew and has built an incredibly talented team,” said CEO Mickey Drexler said in a statement released Monday following news reports of Lyon’s departure. “J.Crew is focused on continuing the progress underway as we execute on our strategic initiatives and position the Company for the long term.”

Lyons brought her quirky style to J. Crew, expanding the brand beyond its classic prep aesthetic. While at J. Crew, Lyons reinvented the pencil skirt and instigated now classic trends as ball gowns with sweaters and the bubble necklace.

Payless_01

Payless goes shoeless

Another one is about to bite the dust!! On Tuesday Payless ShoeSource filed for Chapter 11 protection with plans to restructure debt. Payless also expects to close over 400 underperforming stores in the US and Puerto Rico.

Payless ShoeSource was acquired by Guggenheim Partners in January and advised to restructure debt by filing bankruptcy and closing underperforming stores. Payless has 4,400 stores globally with 3,600 of those stores in North America.

“This is a difficult, but necessary, decision driven by the continued challenges of the retail environment, which will only intensify,” Payless Chief Executive Officer W. Paul Jones commented in a fashionnetwork.com article. Upon closing underperforming stores, Payless looks to “aggressively manage” it remaining stores and expands into Latin America and other international markets.

Celebrities at the 2017 CMAs have really stepped up their fashion sensibilities; case in point is Carrie Underwood. Carrie sparkled in a La Bourjoisie bejeweled gown that featured a tulle train and choker collar. Carrie was beautifully accessorized with Harry Kotlar diamond drop earrings, a Hearts on Fire diamond band and Djula diamond rings.

You wouldn’t normally think of a celebrity glamming it up at the premiere of “Smurfs”. But Demi Lovato always follows the beat of her own drum, looking perfectly lovely and glam in a Tadashi Shoji multi-colored gown with low décolletage. Demi is appropriately accessorized in Harry Kotlar canary diamond studs and a canary diamond ring.

Not one of Fashion Reverie’s favorite looks of the week. But hey, you can’t knock it out of the ballpark every time. Coach of “The Voice Kids UK’s” Pixie Lott wore an Elisabetta Franchi spring 2017 light blue halter top with ruffle detail to the H&M Conscious Collection Dinner.
