Threeasfour To Present at The Jewish Museum
The fashion label Threeasfour will stage a multimedia installation featuring its designs with architecture and video projections on Sept. 15 at The Jewish Museum New York. The design trio of Gabriel Asfour, Adi Gil, and Angela Donhauser will also stage their fashion show at the museum September 8, 2013. The exhibition is called “Mer Ka Ba,” and blends ancient symbols with new technologies. It will include items from Threeasfour’s spring 2014 collection that feature 3-D-printed textiles made with the architect Bradley Rothenberg. The collection and space are inspired by sacred geometry and tile patterns found in synagogues, churches and mosques around the world. Pieces in the runway show will become part of the exhibition. The Threeasfour designers are working with Studio Christian Wassmann to build an architectural structure in the form of a six-pointed star. 3-D animation designer Alex Czetwertynski will create video projections of the five Platonic solids. The exhibition will be on view through November 10, 2013.

Talk show host Dr. Mehmet Oz has tapped a former editor at Glamour and Redbook to launch his new magazine in a partnership with Hearst.

AMF Fines LVMH in Hermès Case
On Monday AMF, the enforcement committee of France’s stock market regulator, imposed its highest fine ever on LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton over the way the luxury conglomerate acquired a 17 percent stake in rival Hermès International. The committee, in charge of sanctions, ordered LVMH to pay 8 million euros, or $10.4 million at current exchange. The decision not only deals a blow to the group headed by Bernard Arnault but could set a precedent for other companies in France, since it has wide implications surrounding a firm’s obligation to report its strategic intentions. LVMH said it would refer the matter to the Paris Court of Appeals as soon as possible. Hermès had no comment on the ruling, which came after a marathon hearing last month during which the AMF board recommended imposing the maximum applicable fine of 10 million euros, or $13 million. The AMF committee handed down its decision on June 25, but the information was only made public on Monday.
