Regaining its footing thanks to its acquisition by Patriarch Partners, Jane Cosmetics will be relaunching with a spring collection. Available online in January at janecosmetics.com and in stores this March; products range in price from $5.99 for a concealer to $9.99 for tinted moisturizer. According to the brand, the plan is to usher in a new fan base while bringing back memories for past brand devotees. In addition to beauty offerings, the new Jane will focus on female camaraderie, confidence, and giving back through The Friends of Jane, a network of women who share a love of beauty, fashion, and charity. “I’m about bringing back American brands that people don’t forget and bringing [it] new life,” said Patriarch Partners founder and chief executive officer, Lynn Tilton. “[Jane is] a brand with great products but also a reflection of what’s in my heart; supporting and empowering women.”
Seeking to prove that “confidence comes in many colors,” the brand will be offering multiple high-pigmented options in a wide range of shades including, long lasting Cream Eye Shadow and Water-Resistant Eye Liner. Lip collections will include sheer, shimmery, and color glosses, while complexion options will be cream blush, bronzer, and illuminizer. The line will also feature makeup palettes—comprised of three eye shadows and powder blush—for $9.99 each. As an additional bonus for Jane and its customers, the new products were developed with Stila (also owned by Patriarch Partners) for increased quality. “I go shopping twice a year and I was on one of my annual trips, shopping at Gucci and everyone there wanted my Jane lip gloss,” said Tilton.
Taking the final spot on the mens’ portion of New York Fashion Week calendar next month will be none other than @tomford. Though he’s shown his men’s wear in New York in the past, this will mark the first time the designer has shown his men’s collection alone during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. His runway show will debut on February 6 at the Park Avenue Armory. #wwdfashion
London-based couture house @ralphandrusso has certainly been in the spotlight, having its dresses worn by @beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Meghan Markle in her engagement photos and more. For couture, Tamara Ralph focused on ornamentation — think: feathers with chain mail, jet embroidery and clusters of pearls and crystals.

Minnie Mouse celebrated her 90th birthday by getting her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For her celebratory luncheon, @coach’s creative director @stuartvevers dressed her in a custom made prairie dress, complete with Vever’s take on the polka dot – black sequined versions – under a cropped motorcycle jacket. The designer also put his own mark on Minnie’s classic red shoes, infusing the color with sparkles and adding some Coach crystals. “We chose colors that were very Minnie and also represented quintessential Coach elements,” said Vevers. #wwdfashion #nationalpolkadotday (📷: George Chinsee)
@nickjonas is unveiling his first-ever apparel collection through a partnership with John Varvatos. The limited-edition capsule, which makes its debut in spring, also marks the first time the designer has collaborated with anyone on a line. “The process in working with Nick is amazing. It’s inspiring to be around someone who is not only connected with the trade that they do, but also with what’s happening in the environment around him, and how that connects to what we do with style,” said Varvatos.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
