PARIS — When it comes to selling a lifestyle, Ilse Cornelissens and Tim Van Geloven, founders of Antwerp-based concept store Graanmarkt 13, have taken a charmingly literal approach to the game. Entering their high-end store — a white townhouse in a tree-lined square within the city’s theater district that once served as the grain market — feels like entering someone’s home. “Stay as long as you want” is the store’s tagline. The serene decor boasts open spaces and huge, linear atelier windows, mixing warm oak parquet flooring, textiles, glass and metal. The ground floor offers hand-picked items from niche fashion and interior brands.
Clients can even book out the couple’s former home, the Apartment, a luxury two-story flat with hotel service on the site’s upper two floors offering four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a light-drenched, glass-walled living room with balcony.
“I feel like the [Emmy] nomination is this absurdly generous bonus to something that I’ve already been excited by for quite some time now,” Darren Criss tells @ktauer about his nomination for his role as Andrew Cunanan in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, “My general attitude toward life is I hope for everything but expect nothing. But when you’re playing for the Warriors, there’s a good chance you’ll make it to the championships. And I’m not saying I’m Steph Curry, but when you’re on [showrunner] Ryan Murphy’s team, it seems more palpable than ever,” he continues. (Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek
