PARIS — A dozen teams are to compete in the Louis Vuitton Pacific Series, a yachting regatta to be held in Auckland, New Zealand, in February.
Those participating in the series, initiated after Vuitton withdrew its 25-year sponsorship from the qualifying series for the America’s Cup last year, include America’s BMW Oracle and Switzerland’s Alinghi, which remain embroiled in a legal fight over the America’s Cup. “Getting all the teams back on the water is a good thing,” said BMW Oracle’s Russell Coutts during a conference at New Zealand’s embassy here Thursday.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
