The Row and Oliver Peoples have linked up for a new eyewear collection that will debut during the clothing label’s Paris Fashion Week presentation. Ranging from $350 to $600 at retail, the collection will incorporate key Oliver Peoples signatures such as wire ridges and discreetly placed logo plaques. The frames are feminine reinterpretations of long-time Oliver Peoples designs, including the O’Malley style, which will be renamed O’Malley NYC. The six styles, which will come in both optical and sunglass options, will be available in stores beginning in January. The collection will be labeled The Row x Oliver Peoples. The sunglass options all feature custom mineral-glass color lenses unique to The Row’s collection.
Glamour’s Cindi Leive Previews Event With Michelle Obama
On Tuesday morning, Glamour editor in chief, Cindi Leive will host a high-profile panel at The Apollo Theater in Harlem that will include First Lady Michelle Obama, Charlize Theron and former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard. The trio will speak with Leive about the issue of global education for adolescent girls, which is a punctuation mark, of sorts, for Glamour’s The Girl Project, which it launched in 2014, a year after it honored humanitarian Malala Yousafzai with a Women of The Year prize.
The event is sponsored by Maybelline New York and may become a mainstay for the Condé Nast-owned magazine going forward, and it could expand to Glamour’s international editions. The talk will not be policy-driven, but instead be more conversational about the impact that education has had on lives of the panelists. The event will be livestreamed by AOL.
Moda Operandi Launches Flagship Concept With Burberry
Burberry will be one of the launch partners to kick off phase one of Moda Operandi’s Flagship concept. The new shops-in-shop section will be introduced on the site today. It’s the first time that Burberry’s entire runway show will be available for pre-order, as well as the first time the brand will be sold on modaoperandi.com. Dolce & Gabbana will launch on Oct. 7 and Oscar de la Renta on Oct. 19. Each sale will last for approximately 10 days.
Moda has big plans for its flagship boutiques. Phase one is mostly limited to pre-ordering from trunk shows. The second season, or phase two, will feature full collections of in-season items alongside of the trunk show offering. Each vendor will have a dedicated brand ambassador who knows the offerings inside and out.
