NEW YORK — Beyoncé and Tina Knowles are gearing up for winter.
House of Deréon, the Knowles' contemporary collection named after Beyoncé's grandmother, has signed a licensing agreement with Tendler Furs, based here, to design, manufacture and distribute fur outerwear and accessories for the collection. The fur collection will include 15 to 25 pieces in several styles such as stoles, boleros and capes, and will be available in mink, sable, chinchilla, fox and rex rabbit furs. Coats will come in short styles and three-quarter lengths.
The fur collection and the contemporary collection will hit stores simultaneously in November for holiday 2005. The fur collection will be sold exclusively to better specialty stores, fur retailers and fur salons in department stores nationwide. Prices were unavailable.
Tendler Furs, a 78-year-old firm, is run by third-generation furriers Steven Tendler, president, and Larry Marchfeld, chief operating officer, along with managing director Victoria Goodman.
Beyoncé and Tina Knowles were traveling in Atlanta and unavailable for comment.
In May 2004, the pair created Beyond Productions with Jason and Arthur Rabin, and Cory Silverstein of Wear Me Apparel/Kid's Headquarters, based here. The partnership provides the infrastructure for licensing and brand management to House of Deréon.
The contemporary collection was licensed in January to Tarrant Apparel Group, a Los Angeles-based private label manufacturer. Last March, House of Deréon signed a licensing agreement with G-III Apparel Group to produce a capsule outerwear collection of 12 to 18 coats and jackets in wool, wovens and leather that will also be distributed for holiday to specialty and department stores.

For @monsemaison’s pre-fall 2018 collection, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim honed in on the brand’s many signatures — men’s wear, which was tweaked and feminized through deconstruction, proportion play and lots of bare shoulders. See the rest of the photos on WWD.com #wwdfashion (📷: George Chinese)

“I’m always a big champion of a female rapper, and I’m glad to see a new voice that feels unique and authentic that’s coming up, and I think we’re going to see more great things from her,” said @itsjeremyscott about @iamcardib, who performed at @moschino’s Art Basel Miami Beach party last night. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
@janellemonae’s “What’s Your Frequency?” room in @refinery29's #29Rooms made its debut this week at the opening of the Los Angeles art exhibit. “It’s about the ongoing conversation around mass surveillance, the weaponization of technology and cultural uniformity. My space was created so that we can come together and talk about the complexities of our humanity,” said Monáe. #wwdeye (📷: @bucknerphoto)
@pantone announced their Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet. Nearly 20 months after the musician Prince’s death, fashion is having a purple moment. Varying shades of purple appeared on spring or fall runways, from @christopherkane to @calvinklein. @gucci’s Alessandro Michele bathed his fall runway in ultra violet-colored light at one point. Pantone 18-3838 is meant to “push the boundaries of what inspires us to look upward and outward to the future.” #wwdnews #wwdfashion (📷: @kukukuba)
