Marquee Brands has breathed new life into Ben Sherman since acquiring the label two years ago. And on Sept. 1, the brand known for its bright British-inspired men’s wear will reenter the New York market with a store in SoHo.
The 2,000-square-foot store at 130 Greene Street will be open through the holidays and will offer monthly programming and activations ranging from a speaker series and influencer dinners to concerts. In terms of merchandise, it will carry the entire Ben Sherman collection, which ranges from ready-to-wear and bespoke suits to footwear and jewelry, as well as limited-edition pieces. There will also be a full-service shirt bar that harkens back to the history of the brand, which was founded in Brighton, England, in 1963 as a young men’s, “Mod”-inspired shirt line. It has since evolved into a lifestyle brand targeting men between 25 and 40 years old.
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

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
