PARIS — The Fédération Française de la Couture, du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode, French fashion’s top governing body, announced Wednesday that the Chambre Syndicale for ready-to-wear has elected four companies as new members.
Acne — already part of the Chambre Syndicale for men’s fashion — Anthony Vaccarello, Jitrois and Viktor & Rolf, joined the ready-to-wear association that comprises around 80 members.
The federation also said that the Chambre Syndicale of ready-to-wear’s executive board has unanimously elected as its new president Ralph Toledano, president of Puig’s fashion division. He replaces Guillaume de Seynes, Hermès International’s managing director, who became the association’s vice president along with Jean-Marc Loubier, Sonia Rykiel’s chairman.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
