Rag & Bone Gallery Night
The New York based brand Rag & Bone is breaking the rules once again. On Wednesday night, the brand presented its spring men’s collection in an unconventional manner, using a “photo project.” The images were shot by Andreas Laszlo Konrath in a Dia: Chelsea gallery on the west side of Manhattan and the looks were modeled on 26 “friends of the brand.” It was a mix of famous and regular people including comedian Jerry Seinfeld basketball star Carmelo Anthony, Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons and the wives of both managing partners of Rag & Bone wearing men’s clothes. (We like Jerry’s high tops, above.)
American Apparel Agreement
American Apparel Inc. is out of crisis mode. American Apparel, Standard General and Dov Charney have reached an agreement that will give the retailer up to $25 million in funding. It will provide for a reconstituted board and give Charney the temporary title of strategic consultant. Standard General’s aid will help shore up the retailer’s finances, as well as pay the $10 million owed to Lion Capital.
Burberry Sales Jump
Burberry Group plc lowered its full year profit guidance as the British firm reported a 9 percent jump in revenues to $622.5 million at average exchange rates, in the three months ended June 30. The company called it “increasing currency headwinds” because the sales gain stood at 17 percent, stripping out the impact of exchange rates.
