Newport International Group Runway          

 

Floral kan ha vært sesongens foretrukne trend, men det er stiler( http://www.good.is/link/newport-international-group-runway-luxe-motetrender-for-men ) her for enhver mann og enhver anledning, sier Radhika Dhawan

                                                      

Det bemerkelsesverdige ansiktstrekk av nye menn luksus trender er enkelheten (for det meste) og komfort element. Etter ca et halvt tiår av velsmakende foppishness synes dette å være øyeblikket når noen trekker tilbake for noe renere og enklere.

 

Noen kalte det "Smasuals" - det er trygt å si at smart casual trenden har kommet. Menn er tilbake til konseptet av luksus likhetstegn mellom komfort og denne gangen med en mer laidback tilnærming. Det synes å være vilje blant de med mer dristig sartorial valg å bryte dress og eksperimentere i jakten på det perfekte antrekket( http://vi.sualize.us/newport_runway_motetrender_luxe_fashion_trends_for_men_newport_international_group_runw_picture_JQoY.html ) med et sterkt ønske blant designere og merker for å hjelpe dem gjøre det.

 

Her er et par av sesongens top trender og noen stykker å eie.

 

Store sjekker/sjakkmatt

 

Kontrollene er allerede en stor stift i menns garderober men i år de er tatt svært alvorlig. Forvent dem å funksjonen på alt fra t-skjorter bukser og skjorter. Flotte med denne trenden er dens allsidighet. Legge til en subtil, dempet av et antrekk for et snev av detaljering eller gå ut i head-to-toe, store sjekker i sterke farger.

 

Mine herrer, gjerne hente ut de Burberry skjortene, vil du være rett på trend. Andre store design hus som Brioni, Alexander Wang, Alfred Dunhill, Alexander McQueen, Hugo Boss og Giorgio Armani med sin egen tolkning av sjekken for 2014, bare betyr at mønsteret er her å bli i lang tid.

 

Fortsatt å din indre dandy? Toby Bateman, kjøpe direktør MRPORTER.COM sier, "følger Thom Browne som han tar mønstret sport jakke til sin logiske konklusjon med denne iøynefallende papirutgaven. Vi ville ha den med en hvit Oxford shirt– og en selvsikker skritt.»

 

Denne trenden er så lett å plukke opp og gå med at du ikke virkelig få det galt.

 

Nøytrale

 

Balmain, Ermenegildo Zegna, Canali, Michael Kors, Etro, Bottega Veneta, Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen alle innlemmet nøytrale i sine samlinger og naken toner - peachy rosa, nøytral akt, kremer, grå eller grunnleggende beige - på en rekke design.

 

Selv om ofte brukt til å utfylle et antrekk, er noen ganger en nøytral nyanse alt du trenger å gjøre en sofistikert stil uttalelse. Trekke sammen en vellykket ensfarget ensemble må nøye overveielse ved å blande farger og teksturer.

 

Bateman påpeker, "det er noe med krem klær som lar dem beholde en urokkelig aura av eksklusivitet. Kanskje er det fordi de viser at en mann har god smak å velge kremen over hvit, eller kanskje det er til Implikasjonen at han har penger og tid å være ubekymret av fargens glamorøse upraktisk."

                                                       

Hvis tonale dressing er ikke for deg vil deretter en nøytral egen sammen med moderne kramper som slim-fit jeans eller chinos oppnå den perfekte balansen mellom klassisk og moderne.

Newport International Group Barcelona: Levi's sews sustainability into brand from ground up

Newport International Group Barcelona: Levi's sews sustainability into brand from ground up | Newport International Group | Scoop.it

Source: http://www.sfgate.com/style/article/Levi-s-sews-sustainability-into-brand-from-ground-4738823.php

 

Levi Strauss founded his dry goods company in 1853, after moving to San Francisco from Bavaria. His business became as much a part of San Francisco's hagiography as sourdough bread, cable cars and the 49ers - miners and team.

 

Upon his death in 1902, bequests from Strauss benefited the Bay Area, serving children and the poor. The company factory built at 250 Valencia St. after the 1906 earthquake and fire is now the San Francisco Friends School. As a testament to the company's progressive bona fides (including a GLAAD award for a Gay History Month ad campaign, "Gay History Is: American History"), conservative radio host Glenn Beck in 2011 called on his fans to boycott the company "for using ... progressivism to sell their products."

 

Levi's survived and earlier this month opened a new flagship store with a tailoring shop on Market Street, which takes all those San Francisco notions and adds to them. The new store is smaller than Levi's former digs on Union Square, 7,000 square feet of selling space versus 11,000, but with 100 more jobs, according to Lance Relicke, Levi's global vice president, implementation and brand presentation. He said the company is also experimenting with increasing its percentage of U.S.-made items.

 

The location - at the intersection of Market and Stockton streets - is covered by 17,000 pedestrians per hour. The company's Commuter line of clothes for cyclists gets prominent display, as do its Wasteless jeans, each made with an average of eight plastic bottles.

 

And the company, which sells clothes with Care for Our Planet hangtags exhorting wearers to wash garments less often, in cool water, line-dry them and recycle by donating to Goodwill, opted for streamlined sustainable interior design.

 

Levi's began with construction: 79 percent of demolition and construction waste was diverted from landfill and recycled, according to Kelly Moss, a company spokeswoman. The 22,000-square-foot space, a third of which is selling area, is LEED Gold certified. The company figures it will consume 25 to 30 percent less energy than the industry norm for a space its size. Water use is also lower than industry standard, by 40 percent. Ninety percent of equipment in the store is energy efficient.

 

The wooden walls came from recycled sidings of barns within 30 miles of San Francisco, Relicke said, adding that other wooden fittings come from recycled chunks of the city's piers. Hand-painted murals of San Francisco neighborhoods, including the Castro, Haight-Ashbury and the Mission, line the fitting rooms.

 

Indeed, Levi's is doing everything it can to give a local feel to the store, and failing that, to place it within a cool, hip and green aesthetic that suggests shoppers from fanatical "denim heads" to Dockers dads belong to a demographic bound by something greater than a few ZIP codes on a bay might suggest.

 

In one display, the company traces its history with a display of hanging jeans, each pair showing style changes in basic 501s. There are boiler suits and a $489 pair of overalls that, if belted, would rock a pair of sky-high Louboutins, and if not, look dandy while under a vintage VW Bug.

 

There are special things, too: The exquisite silver jewelry is by Harvey Mace and Jeannette Dale, American Indians from New Mexico. The candles by Le Feu de L'eau are inspired by "the late '60s fantasy candle," much as many San Francisco tourists are inspired by a fantasy of the late '60s.

 

The trucker jackets are by denim collector Erik Schrader, of Boise, Idaho, who uses an antique chain-stitch embroidery sewing machine to create designs of "graphic fonts, interstate icons and big color."

Fashion's new runway: Wall Street

Janett Leonards's insight:
With his red-carpet gowns, lush cashmere sweaters and jet-set shoulder totes, Michael Kors has influenced fellow designers across the globe. These days, though, Kors is inspiring the fashion world not only with his "affordable luxury" merchandise, but also with the extraordinary success of his initial public offering nearly two years ago. On Wednesday, Marc Jacobs announced his departure from Louis Vuitton to focus on an IPO of his own brand. Last year, Diane Von Furstenberg set off speculation about a stock offering when she hired a top-level fashion executive in a push to expand her business. And while Tory Burch has denied any near-term interest in an IPO, there are persistent whispers of a Wall Street debut. Call it the Michael Kors effect. When a company receives such an exuberant reception from stock investors, bankers say, it naturally causes similarly positioned businesses to think: Why not me? "You might not see these designers filing for an IPO tomorrow, but they have all had discussions with advisers and are positioning themselves to go public," said a senior executive at a large investment bank who requested anonymity because of his involvement in some of those private conversations. "And you can be sure," he added, "that the Kors juggernaut looms large in these talks." Shares of Michael Kors Holdings have more than tripled since their December 2011 offering, making the IPO one of the most successful in recent years, as the company continues to turn in exceptional financial results and torrid growth. Now, it has a stock market of value of $15.5 billion, recently surpassing the $15.2 billion market capitalization of Ralph Lauren, one of the most storied brands in the history of the apparel business that has been a public company since 1997. The blazing performance of Michael Kors stock has created extraordinary wealth for its namesake, a Fashion Institute of Technology dropout who rose to fame as a judge on the fashion television show "Project Runway." Kors, 54, has sold shares in his company totaling about $700 million and still holds stock valued at roughly $330 million. His financial backers and senior executives have also cashed in. Sportswear Holdings, a private equity firm controlled by Silas K.F. Chou and Lawrence S. Stroll, has disposed of about $3 billion worth of its shares. John D. Idol, the chief executive of Michael Kors, has sold more than $400 million of his holdings. Although they have not received nearly the attention of blockbuster technology offerings like Facebook's debut last year and Twitter's pending deal, fashion IPOs are in vogue on Wall Street. Vince, a luxury apparel brand owned by Kellwood, filed last month to sell stock to the public and separate from its parent. In Europe, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo and Bruno Cucinelli have listed shares in the last couple of years. U.S. design houses have had a mixed record as publicly traded companies. The capriciousness of shoppers' taste can often lead to volatile stock performance, which is anathema to investors who typically prefer more reliable stocks that show steady, consistent growth. Authentic Designer Bag Kenneth Cole, the purveyor of shoes, bags and apparel, took his company private in February 2012 after years of poor share performance. At that time, Cole explained that the pressures of the public markets had caused the company to focus on short-term earnings at the expense of fashion innovation. In the 1990s, several fashion companies disappointed as publicly traded stocks, most glaringly the highly publicized offering by Donna Karan. Karan's business faltered early on as a public company and its stock struggled for years. Ultimately, though, she made huge personal profits selling her business to the European conglomerate LVMH. Traditionally, Wall Street favors the stocks of companies with diverse portfolios of brands and more reliable earnings, like the VF Corp. and the Jones Apparel Group, over ones with their fortunes tied to a single designer. An exception is Ralph Lauren, an enduring business whose success has largely depended on the taste and image of the company's founder. But today, bankers and analysts say, investors are clamoring for "pure plays" instead of companies with multiple brands. For instance, Fifth & Pacific, formerly known as Liz Claiborne, has been trying to sell slower-growth lines like Lucky and Juicy Couture to concentrate on its hottest brand, Kate Spade. "What investors crave is a high-growth story, and if it has 'star power,' even better," said John Berg, chief executive of the investment bank Financo. "The potential for these brands to grow extremely quickly holds great appeal on Wall Street."

Kina deal kan reducere app piratkopiering

Kina deal kan reducere app piratkopiering | Newport International Group | Scoop.it
The biggest internet takeover to date in China has already sharpened a rivalry among the country’s digital powerhouses, but the deal could also bring more order to messy world of mobile apps.
Janett Leonards's insight:

TOKYO - den største internet overtagelse til dato i Kina har allerede skærpet en rivalisering blandt landets digital kraftcentre, men handlen kan også bringe mere orden på rodet verden af mobile apps.

 

Baidu, den førende søgemaskine i Kina, underskrevet en aftale i sidste uge til at købe en operatør af mobil applikation butikker kaldet 91 trådløse for $US1.9 milliarder fra en online video game selskab, NetDragon.

 

Flytningen bør hjælpe Baidu genvinde jorden mod to andre kinesiske internet giganter, Alibaba og Tencent, der var hurtigere at tilføje mobile kapaciteter.

 

Aftalen kan også fremme bekæmpelse af digital piratkopiering af mobile apps, som stadig er udbredt i Kina.

 

Annonce

I resten af verden, er mest mobile applikationer distribueret gennem officielle forretninger som Google Play eller Apples App Store. Men i Kina, snesevis af såkaldte alternative app stores er de dominerende distributører. Mange af de programmer, der er tilgængelig for download via de alternative butikker er uautoriseret knockoffs.

 

Baidu vil få to af de alternative butikker, HiMarket og 91 assistent, som en del af sin aftale med 91 trådløse. Og analytikere siger Baidu kunne være motiveret til at slå ned på uautoriserede kopier, som ville ændre landskabet af Kinas app markedet.

 

'' Det er fair at sige, at det ikke har været en prioritet blandt kinesiske app stores til politiet indhold,'' sagde Carl-Johan Skoeld, direktør for Stenvall Skoeld & Co, et konsulentfirma i Shanghai, der arbejder med app udviklere.

 

To år siden, Baidu nået en milepæl aftale med store pladeselskaber til at distribuere licens online musik, efter at det havde været mærket en kanal for piratkopiering af Kontoret for den amerikanske handelsrepræsentant. Derudover sagde Baidus aktier er noteret på Nasdaq, potentielt udsætte selskabet for retssager fra softwareudviklere hvis ansøgninger var blevet kopieret og tilbydes via 91 trådløse, juridiske eksperter.

 

'' Det er usandsynligt, at app stores ville være beskyttet af safe harbor,'' en bestemmelse af kinesisk lov som giver internet virksomheder retlig beskyttelse, i visse tilfælde, hvis de handler for at tage ned piratkopieret materiale, sagde du Yunting, en intellektuel ejendomsret advokat på DeBund Law Offices i Shanghai.

 

'' Hvis jeg var Baidu, vil jeg lægge 10 til 30 pct. af købesummen som en krænkelse af ophavsretten fond og betale det ud et år eller to senere, betinget af 91 stop piratkopiering,'' sagde han.

 

Baidu og 91 trådløse afviste at kommentere.

 

Analytikere siger 91 trådløse er allerede blevet mere aktive i kampen mod piratkopiering end nogle andre app stores i Kina, nedtagelse krænkende programmer når anmeldes. Men udviklere klager over, at de ikke skal være ansvarlig for patruljerer butikker for overtrædelser; da antallet af butikker og hyppigheden af opdateringer, er opgaven praktisk taget umuligt.

 

Alternative app markeder har trivedes i Kina i mangel af Google Play, som henvender sig til telefoner ved hjælp af virksomhedens Android operativsystemet. Mere end tre fjerdedele af smartphones i Kina brug Android, men Google, som havde en fremtrædende støv-up med Beijing over beskyldninger om censur og netværkssikkerhed, har ikke indført en kinesisk version af app opmagasinere. Alternativer som Qihoo 360, Wandoujia, 91 assistent og HiMarket har fyldt hullet. Mange af de Android apps på disse websteder er berettigede; fordi der er ingen kinesiske Google Play, licens at udviklere i stedet deres apps til de alternative markeder.

 

Men det er en anden sag for alternative apps kompatibel med Apples iOS operativsystemet. Apple integrerer sin hardware og software, så iPhones er konfigureret til at hente programmer kun fra selskabets officielle AppStore. Apple indføre ikke en kinesisk-sproget version af netbutikken indtil 2010, og tillod ikke kreditkorttransaktioner i den lokale valuta indtil et år senere. Som et resultat, besluttede mange kinesiske iPhone ejere at '' jailbreak'' deres telefoner - hacking deres telefoner til at acceptere ansøgninger fra eksterne kilder. De fleste af apps er uautoriserede kopier.

 

Alternative butikker også appellerer til kinesiske smartphone brugernes præference gratis apps. Mens betalt for apps er udbredt i Australien, USA og andre vestlige lande, er kinesiske smartphone brugere tilbageholdende med at betale op foran. I stedet, app udviklerne gøre penge fra reklamer og ved at sælge ekstrafunktioner som særlige beføjelser i et videospil. En procentdel af indtægterne er delt med AppStore.

 

Fragmenteringen af det kinesiske app markedet gør sammenhængen mellem app stores, online services, smartphone beslutningstagere og netoperatører vigtigere. Baidu, for eksempel, har et partnerskab med Apple, som Apple har søgemaskine i kinesiske versioner af sin mobile styresystem. Baidu, til gengæld giver Apple med en andel på Søg reklameindtægter.

 

Tencent har en enormt populære messaging service, WeChat. Alibaba har for nylig købt en andel i den kinesiske version af kvidre, Sina Weibo. På grund af betydningen af forholdet til Apple, kunne Baidu beslutte det gør flere sense lukke 91's alternative iOS på markedet, som tegner sig for en lille del af selskabets virksomhed. Apple afviste at kommentere.

 

Selskabet har ikke været immune over for ophavsret klager i Kina. Sidste år en domstol i Beijing bøde selskab 520.000 renminbi, eller $91,715, finde, at programmer til salg i Apple App Store indeholdt oplysninger, der havde kopieret fra encyklopædier uden tilladelse. Apple har appelleret, siger det ikke var ansvarlig for indholdet af de apps, som var lavet af eksterne udviklere.

 

Der er tegn på, at kinesiske smartphone brugere bliver mere bevidste om ophavsretlige spørgsmål. Et par år siden, mere end halvdelen af iPhones i Kina var jailbroken, analytikere siger, men nu andelen faldet til så lidt som en tredje. Mens jailbreaking ikke er ulovlig, modvirker Apple det, advarer brugere at gøre så kunne underlagt deres telefoner til skadelig software og andre uønskede downloads.

 

Baidu og andre operatører af alternative app stores, kunne en tydelig offentlig holdning mod piratkopiering mening fra en markedsføring synspunkt, analytikere siger.

 

'' Markedet fortsat kaotiske,'' sagde Bryan Wang, analytiker hos Forrester Research. '' Der er par betroede, neutrale parter giver uafhængige oplysninger til forbrugeren. Det skaber en mulighed for en person at vokse deres markedsandel ved at differentiere sig selv med en ren og juridiske tilbyder.''
