PARIS — What goes into an Eres bathing suit? The famously discreet French luxury swimwear brand gave WWD an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour, lifting the curtain on the elaborate process behind its swimwear creations, from the color selection and testing of its exclusive fabrics to the manufacturing of the final product at one of the brand’s partner factories.
Part of the Chanel group since 1996, Eres was founded in 1968 by Irène Leroux, who sought to liberate the swimsuit from the constraints of padding and boning, approaching the garment as a second skin based on the body’s architecture. Also part of Leroux’s modern vision, Eres was the first brand to sell swimwear year-round.

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
