2021 seems to be the year that Netflix is expanding into the fashion and lifestyle industry by producing fashion and lifestyle-related film series and documentaries. So far Netflix has produced the controversial four-part “Halston” miniseries and next on the list is the Martha Stewart documentary.

The documentary about the lifestyle mogul is currently underway to be directed by R. J. Cutler and produced by Alina Cho. The documentary is expected to contain plenty of juicy details about Stewart’s life including inside information about her rise from New Jersey babysitter to fashion model to lifestyle mogul. Also, Stewart’s 2004 insider trader scandal, conviction, and prison time will be included.

Though there is no official release date, the documentary is expected to release in 2022.

Welcome back

A year and a half ago Jean-Paul Gaultier announced he was retiring his brand from ready-to-wear (RTW) markets. Though the brand continued producing couture collections, Jean-Paul Gaultier was missed from RTW runway shows and markets.

Well, that has all changed. The fashion house that Gaultier founded is back with a RTW collection in collaboration with five other fashion designers. Gaultier has not showed a RTW collection since 2015, the year the fashion house was acquired by Puig. the Catalan clan that also controls Carolina Herrera, Dries Van Noten, Paco Rabanne, and Nina Ricci.

Palomo Spain, Nix Lecourt Maison, Ottolinger, Alan Crocetti, and Marvin M’Toumo are the five brands that will collaborate with the Gaultier fashion house. There will be a series of five summer drops of the collaborative effort to be released in time for LGBQTI Pride Month.

This collaborative project will include Gaultier’s nautical motifs; however, the brand has updated its signature nautical motif of US naval hats that now include the brand’s logo. The collection will also contain multiple takes on denim sailor’s trousers, even unbuttoned to show the bottom. While the summer drops will also include vintage elements, part of an emphasis on upcycling.

“Torn, distorted, distressed and transcended, the sailor-boy stripes take on a salacious, [hypersexualized] connotation for 2021,” the house of Jean-Paul Gaultier detailed in a release. This collection will began retailing on Friday, May 28 with prices ranging from €150 to €750, with 75 different SKU references.

Fashion designers/brands Tory Burch, Jeremy Scott, Thom Browne, Pyer Moss, Gabriela Hearst, Markarian and Jonathan Simkhai have all committed to show at NYFWS with live shows for the spring 2022 season.

NYFW will take place on September 8-12 with Kors showing on September 10 at 10am live. Michael Kors will broadcast his runway live on his website and other digital platforms.
