Rihanna’s Stylist Has His Eye On These 5 New Designers

elm100117shopssamira-lead-1508257156
ELLE Fashion Director Samira Nasr talks shop with Mel Ottenberg, stylist to ELLE cover star Rihanna. What feels very of-the-moment? Mel Ottenberg: This is a great time to experiment. It’s all about a mix of oversize, androgynous shapes with ultra-feminine bags and shoes. Spring for the ridiculous shoe, not just the “sexy” shoe. What do you consider an absolute fashion faux pas? I find the reality of low-rise pants to be absolutely terrible. Where a stretch skinny jean once felt like enough, it’s not anymore. I’m really into a waist and embroidery when it comes to denim this season. What style essentials should every woman own? A jacket and a sweater that change your life when you put them on. And this season, an oversize shirt. Who do you think...

Valentino is taking fashion's love for athleisure to the next level. The brand is opening sport-themed pop-up shops in New York, Milan, Hong Kong, and Tokyo to sell its athletic-inspired Resort 2018 collection, which creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli presented in May.
The interiors are designed to resemble chic gyms, and training spaces. (A release from the brand even teases "imaginary basketball nets.") In addition to the resort range, the pop-ups will also be selling sports gear, including basketballs, sneakers, yoga mats, and tracksuits.
The limited-edition items are all marked with a new logo, "VLTN," which was inspired by old Valentino logos in the '80s and '90s, according to WWD. Take a look at some of the athletic gear below:

Steven Meisel

The change is effective at the end of the month.

Coach Inc. is changing its name to Tapestry to better incorporate all of the brands it owns, which includes Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman. The name change becomes official at the end of the month. Tapestry already has its own website up and running. The new moniker "is more inclusive," according to Victor Luis, CEO of the New York-based label. "We are now at a defining moment in our corporate reinvention, having evolved from a mono-brand specialty retailer to a true house of emotional, desirable brands," he said in a statement. The change is part of Coach's pursuit of younger shoppers who may not feel the same draw to store windows on Manhattan's...

The Best Of What’s New This Fall

DAN & CORINA LECCA

Your wish list calls for double denim, timeless trenches, and floral fantasies.

As an intelligent, fashion literate woman of style, you’ve moved beyond trends. Trends are the enemy of longevity; the death of individuality. Trends, as you have read repeatedly, are over, although you recognize that this may be a question of semantics. Switch the word “trends” for “updates” or “evolution” or “refreshers,” and trends start to seem not only relevant but vital. Also, you cannot help observing that without trends there is no momentum, no moving forward (even if sometimes the shift seems to be back to a previous era). So like a tech junkie hovering over her cell phone on a de-connectivity retreat or a Wall Street wolf prowling...

The sister brand will reportedly be called "White Label."

Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, the design duo behind Proenza Schouler, are launching a new line this fall.
According to WWD, the brand is called "White Label" and will offer more casual, accessible pieces like denim, t-shirts and basic essentials. White Label reportedly won't act as a diffusion line to Proenza but rather as a "sister collection." While the price point is still unclear, chances are the wardrobe essentials will be offered at a more affordable price, for those who can't afford Proenza Schouler pieces ranging in the thousands.
