Oxford Industries is launching a new technically skewed sportswear collection, and has chosen the PGA Show in Orlando, Fla., later this month to introduce the line.“We have a rich heritage in golf and we saw the need in the market for sportswear that incorporates technical features but that can be worn for everyday life,” said Debra Miller, vice president of design and merchandising for Oxford Golf, which is overseeing the collection.She described the line, which will debut for fall, as “classic with a twist,” and said it is designed to be true sportswear, not just a golf brand. “We’ve typically had more golf product and dabbled in merchandise for the clubhouse and beyond, but now we’re pushing it to a more lifestyle perspective.”The collection, which will be targeted to green-grass shops as well as better men’s specialty stores, will consist of polos, woven sport shirts, knitwear, casual bottoms, outerwear and shoes. Miller described it as the company’s take on “sophisticated” ath-leisure.There are cotton button-down and spread-collar shirts in checks and plaids in a nylon and spandex blend that makes them quick drying, breathable and wrinkle-resistant. Polos are made from cotton and Dri-Release polyester or Coolmax in updated designs with smaller collars, more-tailored sleeves and more-contemporary designs.Oxford sportswear will also include sweaters in cotton and wool, some with Coolmax and others in French terry and spandex. There are crewnecks, V-necks, quarter-zips and button-placket styles as well as quilted vests.In terms of pants, the sportswear collection will include three types of trousers: a flat-front cotton chino, a five-pocket model and a polyester-spandex blend.The shoes will be available in drivers, loafers or chukka boot styles.[caption id="attachment_10743981" align="aligncenter" width="300"] The sportswear line includes technical features.[/caption]Retail prices include woven shirts for $125, polos for $89, sweaters for $99 to $200, shorts and pants for $89 to $125 and shoes for $195. The brand has a horseshoe logo and its tagline is "Make Today Lucky.”In addition to the PGA Show, which runs from Jan. 25 to 27, the line will be shown at the MRket show in New York as well as regional shows in Chicago, Dallas and Charlotte, N.C., this winter. Miller said a “shoppable” web site for the brand will go live when the line ships in May.Atlanta-based Oxford Industries is the parent of Tommy Bahama, Lilly Pulitzer and Southern Tide.

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
