JONES INTRODUCES SOCKS: Dominion Hosiery Inc., a Toronto-based manufacturer, has signed a licensing agreement with Jones New York to develop and produce a line of women's socks under that label. The initial collection, 35 pieces for early spring, wholesales from $2.10 for a cotton nylon anklet to $4.20 for a cotton and nylon over-the-knee style. Shipments are to start Oct. 30. Projected volume for the new line in its first year is $1.5 million, according to Debbie Olonoff, president of D&D Legwear, the New York sales firm representing the new line. The company plans to double its offerings for fall 1995, she said. Designed to coordinate with Jones New York sportswear, the socks are being sold at Crown Pacific U.S.A. Inc.'s showroom in New York at 16 West 32nd St., where Jones New York's licensed accessories are sold. Olonoff, who resigned in April as Lord & Taylor's casual sock buyer, also is using Crown Pacific's showroom to represent Beds first line of women's athletic and casual socks. The 35-piece spring line is being manufactured by Willow Hosiery Co. Inc., a New York sock resource. Projected first-year volume for the line is at least $500,000, Olonoff said. Unlike Keds boys' and men's socks, which are sold to mass stores, the women's line will be sold to specialty and department stores, she said.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
