New York fashion week: Look hot in the cold

Tribeca Festival films go behind the scenes in fashion, dance and theater

Robert De Niro waves upon arriving for the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival opening night screening of 'Time Is Illmatic' in New York By Patricia Reaney NEW YORK (Reuters) - From final fittings at a famous Parisian fashion house to rehearsals for a young choreographer's new work for the New York City Ballet and a global tour of "Richard III," documentaries at the Tribeca Film Festival give viewers the film equivalent of a backstage pass. "Dior and I," which opens on Thursday, follows creative director Raf Simons, 46, as he prepares his first couture collection for Christian Dior, and uncovers similarities between the Belgian designer and the French founder of the famous Parisian fashion house. "There were all these uncanny things," said New York-based, French-born director Frederic Tcheng about the two men, both shy, reserved and inspired by the arts. Using voiceover excerpts from Dior's 1956 memoir "Christian Dior & I," Tcheng introduces viewers to Dior, both the man and the fashion house he created.

Exclusive: 'Leopard King' Cavalli nears 450 million euro sale to Permira - sources

Cavalli acknowledges the audience at the end of his Spring/Summer 2014 collection during Milan Fashion Week By Pamela Barbaglia and Sophie Sassard LONDON (Reuters) - Italian designer Roberto Cavalli is in advanced talks to sell a majority stake in his eponymous fashion house to London-based buyout firm Permira in a sale worth about 450 million euros ($621 million), four sources close to the deal told Reuters. A sale would mark the end of more than 40 years on the haute couture scene for Cavalli, known as "The Leopard King" for his animal prints colorfully cast in leather, silk and velvet. And it would demonstrate once again the appeal of Italian family-owned fashion firms for investors after rival label Versace sold a 20 percent stake to U.S. private equity firm Blackstone for 210 million euros in February. An agreement between Permira and Cavalli could be reached in the coming weeks after the 73-year-old designer, rarely seen without his large sunglasses and cigar, dropped his reluctance to ceding a controlling stake, the sources said.


Don't have a Pucci scarf? Brand's new 'Scarfie' app lets you pretend you do

Emilio Pucci 'Scarfie' app Luxury Italian fashion brand Emilio Pucci has launched its first mobile app, celebrating the label's signature accessory, the printed silk scarf. Scarfie is a playful twist on the selfie social media trend, letting users take photos of themselves and then personalize the image with the addition of a Pucci scarf. Pucci is curating a specially selected portion of the stylish snaps to publish on its new, dedicated Tumblr page at emiliopucciscarfie.tumblr.com. Pucci is by no means the first fashion label to dip its toe into the unstable waters of offbeat apps: last month designer Karl Largerfeld launched a quirky emoji app called emotiKarl, featuring ideograms inspired by the fashion world.


A gay artist will get his images on stamps in Finland

Finland's postal service will honor "Tom of Finland" with stamps taken from his work - homoerotic drawings of muscular men wearing tight, black leather uniforms, when they wear anything at all. The stamps, which will be issued in September, are based on the drawings of Touko Laaksonen, better known by the pseudonym "Tom of Finland," who split his time between Finland and California. "Tom of Finland is considered one of the most well-known Finnish artists around the world," Finnish postal service Itella said in a statement issued this week regarding Laaksonen, who died in 1991. "His emphatically masculine homoerotic drawings have attained iconic status in their genre and had an influence on, for instance, pop culture and fashion." Graphic artist Timo Berry, who designed the sheet of three stamps, said they portray a sensual life force and being proud of oneself.

Texas woman sentenced to life in stiletto-heel killing

By Amanda Orr HOUSTON (Reuters) - A Texas jury sentenced a woman on Friday to life in prison for stabbing her boyfriend to death with the 5-1/2-inch stiletto heel of her shoe during an argument after an alcohol-fueled night out last year. Ana Trujillo, 45, was convicted on Tuesday of killing University of Houston professor Stefan Andersson, 59, who had been stabbed about two dozen times in the face and head during an altercation at his upscale condominium. "I didn't mean to kill him," Trujillo told Judge Brock Thomas after hearing the sentence. Jurors took less than two hours to convict Trujillo of murder and the same jury deliberated for several hours on Friday before deciding that she should serve life in prison.

Move over, Mum: Prince George is new fashion icon

Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge holds Prince George during a play session with other parents and babies in Wellington on April 9, 2014 Just months ago it was his mother's fashion choices that sparked a buying frenzy -- but with just one pair of mini-dungarees Prince George appears to have stolen her fashion limelight. When the eight-month-old future king crawled about in a playgroup in Wellington, New Zealand, on Tuesday for what was billed as his first major public engagement, his outfit sold out within hours -- the same effect that his mother Catherine has had in the past. "In today's fashion climate what your children wear says as much about you as it does them," Estelle Lee, editor-in-chief of Baby and Me, a magazine for new parents, told British newspaper The Times. Two days ago, George's kangaroo-themed toy bag that was carried by his father Prince William as they arrived for their tour Down Under prompted a rush of orders on the website of the Australian Koala Foundation.


Why Do So Many Fledgling Fashion Businesses Fail?

The fashion world is, by its very nature, an extremely image-conscious environment. So, it stands to reason that fledgling designers believe they need to create the right impression when they venture into this rarified territory.

Nicole Kidman is the face of Jimmy Choo for the fourth season in a row. The world-famous Australian actress looks at least 20 years younger in the new Pre-Autumn/Winter campaign from Jimmy Choo. Scantily clad, Nicole Kidman barely looks like herself in the images, which seem to have been heavily edited.

Nonetheless, Kidman looks glamorous and rebellious, wearing a white blazer with black and silver boots, in line with the rock 'n' roll aesthetic of the Jimmy Choo pre-fall collection.

Grey skies don't deter Rihanna at Paris fashion week

Singer Rihanna poses before the Lanvin Fall/Winter 2014-2015 women's ready-to-wear collection show during Paris Fashion Week By Alexandria Sage PARIS (Reuters) - Rainy skies did not deter the fashionistas from gathering this week in Paris - with singer Rihanna this season's front-row "It" girl - as the Fall/Winter ready-to-wear collections promised cold weather looks to warm the iciest of hearts. As winter refused to say goodbye in the City of Light, Dior head designer Raf Simons resuscitated his "flower woman" on Friday, this time sheathing her in doubled-breasted power suits with white laces up the sides. Still, the audacious fabric and colour combinations, such as emerald green and fuchsia, kept fans of the house of Dior buzzing, and Rihanna, who sipped champagne from the front row at Lanvin the night before, slipped backstage to schmooze with Simons. Designer ready-to-wear, or pret-a-porter in French, is an 85-billion-euro ($116 billion) global business, according to Euromonitor, and the fashion week that runs from Tuesday through to March 3 is a major advertising weapon for brands.

A frosty oak tree rose from beneath the stage in a flurry of snow at Dolce and Gabbana before models glided out in clothes stitched with squirrels, foxes and childlike flowers. Salvatore Ferragamo showed a textured collection of furry coats, metallic dresses and leopard-print skirt suits for autumn and winter, in a startlingly bright white room.
