Luxury brands have taken over from the NBA Draft.

The 2022 NBA Draft kicked off Thursday at Barclays Center in New York with the Orlando Magic selecting Duke’s Paolo Banchero at number one. And if the top pick set the tone for a historic night of basketball, the outfits did the same for menswear.

No more WWD

This year, Neiman Marcus, Indochino and image director Kesha McLeod outfitted most recruits with suits, diamond accessories and watches. Ahead of the event, NBA sponsor Hennessy teamed up with Louis Vuitton fine jewelry designer Lorenz Bäumer on a magnum decanter for the league’s 75th anniversary, and offered a one-of-a-kind version in his kind to DJ Khaled. Philips also hosted an activation and Moose Knuckles hosted a dinner party to celebrate the recruits ahead of their big day.

The rookies got bold and bright this year, starting with Banchero, who wore a Dolce & Gabbana double-breasted purple suit with rhinestones, a “P5” diamond chain and a Richard Mille watch. He said in an interview that he wore purple to honor his parents who went to the University of Washington.

Image director McLeod has dressed Benn Mathurin, Jalen Williams, Kendall Brown and EJ Liddell in brands like Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Hublot, among others. The recruits arrived with Rimowa suitcases and received gift boxes with products from brands such as H&M, MCM, Moose Knuckles, Billionaire Boys Club, Filson, Spalding, Stance, Monfrere, Avirex, Raftis by Ari, Thursday Boot, Top Tier, ATM, Blue Scarpa, Falconeri, James Cosmetics and Venn Skincare.

McLeod dressed Mathurin in a red floral Dolce & Gabbana suit, Hublot watch, and jewelry provided by Eric Mavani, known as Eric Da Jeweler; Williams in Gucci, Hublot and Eric Da Jewelry, and Kendall Brown in Gucci shoes with a Kilburne and Finch suit. His watch was provided by Jason of Beverly Hills.

Indochino selected six rookies for the evening, including Keegan Murray, Mark Williams, Nikola Jovic, Ousmane Dieng, Jeremy Sochan and Blake Wesley. Murray wore a charcoal herringbone suit, Williams replaced his alma mater Duke in a bold bird’s-eye deep blue suit, Jovic sported a glen-checked midnight blue suit, Dieng who was drafted by the New York Knicks and immediately traded at the Oklahoma City Thunder wore a solid red suit, Sochan went bright in a bird’s-eye lilac, and Wesley was drafted in a classic black suit.

These six rookies join a long list of players who have been styled by Indochino, including Chris Paul, brand ambassador RJ Barrett and his Knicks teammates Obi Toppin and Immanuel Quickley, and new NBA champions Jordan Poole and James Wiseman of the Goldens. State Warriors.

“It’s a privilege to be able to dress these players and expand Indochino’s presence,” said Indochino general manager Drew Green. “Being able to dress many of this year’s NBA Draft picks is a privilege for our brand and gives us the opportunity to inspire basketball fans to create their own custom apparel.”

Neiman Marcus, as part of their Concrete Runway campaign, dressed number two pick Chet Holmgren and AJ Griffin for their Draft Day, Draft Night and signature-day looks. Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills style advisor Roman Tioseco dressed Holmgren in a full Ermenegildo Zegna outfit and Griffin in a Giorgio Armani tuxedo and Emporio Armani tuxedo pants, Tom Ford tuxedo shirt, an Eton velvet bow tie and Christian Louboutin velvet loafers.

“This is our second year of styling for the draft,” said Bruce Pask, director of menswear for Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. “We believe many of our customers look to athletes for style inspiration, and they trust Neiman Marcus as the premier destination for luxury menswear.”

Pask added that the draft is important in marking the beginning of athletes’ professional careers and their personal brands. “College athletes have [an over] 400% higher engagement rate than the average industry influencer benchmark,” he said. “We connect with new customers in a meaningful way while engaging in culturally relevant conversation. As part of Neiman Marcus’ first “Concrete Runway” campaign, we hope this will be a platform to explore partnerships with athletes beyond the draft in the future.

“It was great teaming up with Neiman Marcus for my night draft,” Holmgren said. “They had an incredible selection of options, and I couldn’t be more excited about what we found and how it was tailor-made in the style that I really love. I’m going to work hard all season to give my best on the court, and off the court, style-wise, I feel like I’ve gotten off to a good start.

Stars of the night include Tari Eason’s emerald green evening jacket and diamond accessories, Dyson Daniels wore a silver suit, Jalen Duren and Johnny Davis wore burgundy ensembles, Jabari Smith lined his suit jacket with his memories of playing at Auburn University and Shaedon Sharpe wore a jacket with his all-over pattern logo.

Unique Jaguar XJ-S Shooting Brake by Paolo Gucci up for auction – Robb Report https://manpradasunglasses.com/unique-jaguar-xj-s-shooting-brake-by-paolo-gucci-up-for-auction-robb-report/ Wed, 22 Jun 2022 19:31:58 +0000 https://manpradasunglasses.com/unique-jaguar-xj-s-shooting-brake-by-paolo-gucci-up-for-auction-robb-report/ There are many special Jaguars throughout the marque’s 86-year history, but only one was born out of a collaboration with a member of the Gucci family.

There are many special Jaguars throughout the marque’s 86-year history, but only one was born out of a collaboration with a member of the Gucci family. And now this vehicle could be yours.

A 1987 XJ-S V12 HE Lynx Eventer by Paolo Gucci will be auctioned by Bonhams later this week as part of its Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​Sale. The Sports Shooting Brake was originally intended for the first of a limited run of vehicles, but due to a legal dispute ended up being the only example to ever see the light of day.

If you saw last year Gucci House you already know that the 1980s were a turbulent time for Paolo, who is played by a typically over-the-top Jared Leto in the film. The fashion designer spent much of the decade locked in a brutal legal battle with his father, Aldo, which culminated in Paolo having the eldest Gucci removed from the family business mid-decade and then informed the taxman that he had also evaded taxes. A few years later, Paolo, who is credited with Gucci’s double G logo, set out to design a limited-edition vehicle that would come with a matching set of luggage from the house.

Bonham

Paolo would eventually land on Jaguar’s XJ-S grand tourer, a vehicle so synonymous with luxury and performance during the 21 years of production (1975-1996). However, he didn’t want to work with just any XJ-S. Paolo had his eye specifically on the Eventer, a special shooting-station wagon version of the car designed by British coachbuilder Lynx. The example that Paolo drew features a special two-tone paint job, with dark blue and light blue down divided by a thin orange stripe. Inside were blue-lacquered burl elm wood trim, hand-dyed Italian calfskin upholstery, modified instrument dials, a leather steering wheel encrusted with semi-precious lapis lazuli stones and an Alcantara suede headliner.

Unfortunately, the car would never go into production despite its debut shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 1990. A limited run of 20 units had to be scrapped due to legal issues. Paolo had left Gucci by then and his lawyers successfully asserted that he had no right to use his name to endorse the vehicle, according to the auction house. Due to this, the project was canceled after only one came off the line. The car would eventually end up in the hands of Jaguar enthusiast Ian Berg in 2015, who had the car completely stripped and restored in the years that followed.

The unique Gucci-branded XJ-S shooting wagon is set to go up for auction next Friday. Bonhams expects it to sell for between $86,000 and $123,000. It might even turn out to be a bargain considering how rare the vehicle is, even though it’s not official.

A Jaguar XJS transformed into a Shooting Brake by bodybuilder Lynx will be auctioned in a few days at Bonham’s Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​auction.

The XJS was created in 1975 and keen to offer customers something unique, Lynx decided to develop a Shooting Brake version, launching the vehicle in 1982 as the Eventer. This particular model is more special than most.

Impressed with the Lynx Eventer, former design director and vice president of Gucci, Paolo Gucci, approached Lynx and began working with them to develop a special Gucci variant of the Eventer. The finished car was shown at the 1990 Geneva Motor Show, but the fashion house didn’t want its name attached to the project, so the entire Gucci branding was removed and while it was planned to build 20 units, a production never materialized, leaving this as the one and only Gucci Eventer.

Also Watch: The Jaguar XJS Has Aged In Looks, But Prices Haven’t Catched Up Yet

The car has changed hands several times since it was built in December 2014, being sold at a Bonhams auction to Ian Berg, a Jaguar enthusiast and owner of Complete Classic Car Solutions. Berg managed to contact two people involved in the original creation of the Gucci Eventer and embarked on a restoration. The car was stripped of its bare metal and repainted in a two-tone blue finish with a thin gold stripe along the sides of the car.

The interior was also restored as it was determined that scrapping and rebuilding it would be too expensive. The cabin is distinguished by bright blue leather on the seats, door panels, transmission tunnel and steering wheel. The listing shows that there are also various orange leather surfaces and gray trim on the dashboard and carpets.

Knives out Star Ana de Armas plays Marilyn Monroe in upcoming biopic titled Blond. Many audiences are excited to see how she approaches the role, but others are a bit weary after seeing Lady Gaga in Gucci House. Reddit started quite a conversation about what they want de Armas to do as Monroe.

Netflix attempts another biopic with Blond, which stars de Armas as Monroe. This new look offers an NC-17 look back at his life. It is based on the novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates. However, de Armas won’t do a look at Monroe’s life, as it’s a re-imagining of the star’s personal life.

“I feel like I’m in a backyard in Brooklyn right now,” Meeka Hossain said outside the doors of 8400 Melrose Place in Los Angeles, where Adidas and Gucci held a buyable pop-up — and an outdoor dance party – Friday night to celebrate the launch of their capsule collection. The digital content creator, originally from Los Angeles, is a staple at fashion events.

“It’s a throwback to ’70s disco, all the fun neighborhood stuff you’d see at a block party in New York City,” Hossain continued.

Closing out a section of Melrose Place, the evening featured performances by local talent: Dance LA Entertainment breakdancers, Let’s Jump, LA – the skipping rope and Dutch doubles team – and the LA Roller Girls, who skated through the crowd by offering BBQ staples like sliders, hot dogs, and sweets that included spiked Jello shots.

“These are dangerously good,” remarked a passerby, grabbing two gin-infused gelatin treats.

The crowd went wild. Outside, they drank and mingled, sitting on bleachers and picnic tables overlooking a basketball court. Inside they shopped, largely accessories and hoodies. The collection itself, vibrant and retro, was the inspiration for the decor.

Lots of guests to match the backdrop, dressed in sports, on the theme of the new collection. The event brought out the designer Jerry Lorenzo, who turned heads everywhere he went; sisters Langley Fox and Dree Hemingway; activist and designer Aurora James; designer Waraire Boswell; director Melina Matsoukas; artist Cleo Wade; French content creator Lena Mahfouf; Saint Vincent music artists, Teezo Touchdown, Soko and Mallory Merk; actors Lena Waithe and Jeremy Pope, as well as professional athletes Bogdan Bogdanović, Chiney Ogwumike, Nneka Ogwumike and Isaiah Simmons.

The celebration continued on Saturday when the public could visit the space by appointment. The address, which once housed Marc Jacobs, is now a brick and mortar Gucci. The Italian brand will unveil the store in the coming months.

Over the years, a few celebrities have left an indelible mark on pop culture. These celebrities have become not only invaluable entertainment personalities, but also fashion icons – people like Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn are prime examples. However, no style icon is more inimitable than former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, wife of John F. Kennedy. During her lifetime, she became a major fashion force, and her affinity for a particular handbag prompted fashion house Gucci to rename the bag in her honor.

Jackie Kennedy first came to prominence as the wife of President John F. Kennedy. Her unmistakable style and graceful personality set a precedent that all other White House residents would try to copy over the years, and people couldn’t get enough of her beautiful, tasteful fashion choices.

PARIS, June 9 (Reuters) – French luxury group Kering (PRTP.PA) outlined plans to boost annual sales of its star brand Gucci to 15 billion euros over the medium term in slides released on Thursday after a presentation to investors.

Sales of Gucci, the group’s main brand and profit engine, totaled 9.73 billion euros in 2021.

The group expects to grow brand sales through a combination of increased store traffic, expanded store networks and higher prices.

She plans to periodically raise prices and continue to increase the proportion of high-end products in her collections. Examples given in the slides included precious leather handbags, personalized shoes and fine jewelry – a product category introduced in 2019.

In China, the company said it will ramp up business through “stronger local execution,” particularly at the high end, while the US focus will include adding new stores while by reducing wholesale distribution.

Gucci’s profits nearly quadrupled and its revenues nearly tripled in the 2015-19 period, under the leadership of CEO Marco Bizzarri and creative director Alessandro Michele.

While much of the brand’s success until recently has relied on young, well-heeled Chinese shoppers heading to Europe’s fashion capitals and snapping up Michele’s quirky and flamboyant designs, since the pandemic it’s s is focused on raising awareness among local consumers.

Analysts said Wednesday that new targets for the smaller, fast-growing Yves Saint Laurent would likely prompt them to revise their estimates upwards. Read more

EVERYTHING THAT SHINES : Like rival Sotheby’s, Christie’s is still booming after recent record art sales. Hoping to maintain this high momentum, Christie’s is counting on high-priced accessories and jewelry to boost sales.

Wednesday’s ‘Magnificent Jewels’ sale will feature ‘The Light of Africa Diamond’, an emerald-cut diamond that weighs 103.49 carats. This coin has an estimate ranging from $11 million to $18 million.

The sale will also include notable jewelry from JAR that comes from philanthropist, publisher and estate socialite Ann Getty, who died in 2020, including a multigem and diamond leaf brooch with a nearly 12-carat cushion-cut emerald. The presale estimate is between $500,000 and $700,000.

Another key offering from the “Magnificent Jewels” sale will be a Van Cleef & Arpels coral and gold jewelry set that previously belonged to the late leading lady of New York, Brooke Astor. The VCA NY signed necklace and VCA signed earrings are expected to fetch between $30,000 and $50,000.

Wednesday will also mark the start of Christie’s ‘evening watch sales’. A Patek Philippe wristwatch in 18-karat rose gold with a cloisonné enamel dial depicting the shores of Lake Geneva and the vineyards of Lavaux is expected to cost between $1 million and $2 million.

There’s also an online sale going on for designer handbags that ends on Thursday. Called “The New York Edit,” the 194 pre-owned styles include dozens from Hermès, as well as options from Gucci, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. On Monday, a shiny 2016 Hermès Gris Tourtrelle Porosus Crocodile Kelly bag had a bid of $14,000. There are also a few miscellaneous items such as the Hermès 2021 Savannah bag charm which as of Monday afternoon had a current bid $300 to $100 below the estimated opening price.

Returning to New York last fall after working for a few years in Christie’s London office, Rachel Koffsky was named senior vice president of international handbags on June 1. also continue to work as an auctioneer.

One handbag that’s getting a lot of attention online is a 2021 Hermès custom matte pink alligator Birkin 25 handbag that had a bid of $120,000 as of Monday afternoon — double the high end of its estimate.

Another current standout is a matte white Himalayan crocodile flipped Kelly 25 with palladium hardware that had a bid of $120,000 as of Monday afternoon. This was approaching the estimated opening price of $150,000. “A very similar piece recently sold in Hong Kong for $450,000,” Koffsky said.

In her former role as Senior International Specialist, she has traveled to many different countries assisting handbag collectors with the care of their collections, curating collections and running auctions. She also worked as an auctioneer for the company’s handbag auctions in London. Christie’s has also reintroduced handbag sales in Paris and Milan. The April sale in Paris for the most collectible bags sold 100% of the 70 models, thanks to international participation. Citing a recent “phenomenal” sale in Hong Kong, Koffsky said expectations for New York were also high.

“The market is very strong for handbags. We are seeing very strong demand. The pandemic has changed the way many people have approached shopping and collecting. It really lowered a lot of barriers to entry, in terms of people feeling comfortable participating online and with the secondary market,” she said.

Additionally, supply chain issues and the closure of some factories have caused some customers to look to the aftermarket for options. Many are doing this for the first time in their lives. Resale interest is led by Gen Z, whose members are “very comfortable buying and selling in the secondary market,” Koffsky said. “It’s a feeling that’s [increasingly] shared by all generations.

Handbags are part of Christie’s luxury segment, which also includes watches, wine and jewelry. Although the jewelry department is a separate department, the handbag team works closely with its employees and there is a lot of crossover with buyers. “Often, customers come to see a diamond. And walking through the galleries, they will be taken by a Birkin or vice versa,” Koffsky said.

Christie’s expects a lot from its sale of handbags online.

Christie’s New York has more planned for this fall from the Ann & Gordon Getty collection. Through a series of auctions in October, nearly 1,500 decorative and fine art items from the couple’s San Francisco apartment will be on offer. “Entrance to the Grand Canal to the East” by Il Canaletto and “Chrysanthemums in a Vase from China (1902)” by Henri Matisse are expected to bring in around $6 million and $4 million, respectively. Proceeds from the sale, which will benefit the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation for the Arts, are expected to reach up to $180 million, according to the auction house.

When Olga Levy returns a Gucci bag to TJ Maxx, she expects a quick refund. Instead, the business stagnates. What’s going on?

Q: I placed my order with TJ Maxx last year and paid by PayPal credit. I returned a few purchases, including two clothes and a Gucci bag. They reimbursed me for the clothes, but not the bag.

After many attempts to get a refund for the bag and several emails with TJ Maxx customer service, I turned to PayPal.

But PayPal declined my case because the item was “as described”.

I never said the item was not as described, I just asked for their help in retrieving a refund for an item I returned. Can you help ? —Olga Levy, Honolulu

A: TJ Maxx should have refunded the purchase immediately. So why not?

A review of the correspondence between you and TJ Maxx shows one of the issues. “We apologize for the delay in processing your return,” he said.

“When items like this are returned, we have to authenticate them. This causes a delay in processing the refund.

TJ Maxx suggests you may have returned another Gucci bag. But you assured me that you did indeed return the same Gucci bag to TJ Maxx that you received. So what was wrong?

It looks like when TJ Maxx didn’t refund the order, you filed a dispute with PayPal. This litigation was ongoing when you contacted me.

So when I contacted TJ Maxx, he said he couldn’t refund you until you dropped your case.

Disputing your PayPal dispute is a lot like filing a credit card chargeback (but not exactly the same thing).

If you had won and TJ Maxx had returned your money as well, you would have gotten two refunds.

You could have contacted one of the TJ Maxx customer service people. I list their names, numbers, and email addresses on my nonprofit consumer advocacy site, Elliott.org. They may have helped you solve this problem quickly.

I contacted TJ Maxx on your behalf. He checked your return and verified that it was the correct Gucci bag. It also agreed to refund your purchase, but said you need to drop your PayPal dispute first. Once you did, you received a refund of $1,162.
