SWISS MAG: Christina Ferrari, most recently interim editorial director of Wallpaper, and before that, managing editor of Teen People, is launching a new English-language magazine in Switzerland with her husband, Henry Muller, former editorial director of Time Inc. They have joined forces with two Swiss journalists, Pierre Grosjean and Gabriel Sigrist, and American entrepreneur Andy Sundberg, former founder of Internet access provider Iprolink. Scheduled to launch early next year by Violet Media S.A., the as-yet-unnamed magazine will be the only English-language magazine that covers all of Switzerland, including news, opinions and lifestyle information. It will have offices in Geneva and Zurich.
MORE SECURE PORTS: Two Italian ports, La Spezia and Genoa, have been added to the list of foreign ports participating in the U.S. Customs Service’s cargo pre-inspection program, the agency announced.

The ports of Le Havre, France; Hamburg; Bremerhaven, Gemany; Antwerp, Rotterdam and Singapore have already signed up.
DONNA’S ANTI-DRUG: DKNY Jeans has joined forces with the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy’s Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign to release a 2003 calender showcasing 14 male stars, including Enrique Iglesias, Jonathan Jackson and Jay Hernandez. The calendar plays off the campaign’s "What’s Your Anti-Drug?" theme, which encourages young people to embrace a passion or hobby instead of drugs. Photographed by Herb Ritts with creative direction by Donna Karan’s team, each celebrity is pictured with a quote telling what his anti-drug is. Iglesias’s anti-drug is windsurfing, and he is quoted as saying: "It kept me focused on the positive things in my life and it also helped me learn that you’ve got to be yourself to be cool." About 750,000 copies of the calendar will be inserted in the December-January issues of CosmoGirl magazine, with thousands more available on newsstands in New York, Florida and California. It will also be available as a free download on Freevibe.com, a pop culture Web site for teens and tweens.

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)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
