PARIS — Sonia Rykiel has appointed Nathan Levy as managing director in New York, effective immediately. Levy will oversee retail and wholesale for the Sonia Rykiel and Sonia by Sonia Rykiel brands in North and South America. He succeeds Leslie Johnsen, who in August left the position of managing director, North America, after a six-month tenure. New owner Fung Brands Ltd., which bought a majority stake in Rykiel last year, has signaled its intention of reconquering the U.S. market. Levy has held similar commercial positions, most recently as managing director of Erin Fetherston, the company said.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
