You and Mrs. Herrera have a special relationship.

OVERHEARD… “Hopefully she’ll have more time to have lunch with me!”

I have goose bumps! What has she brought to fashion?

She’s an icon and always will be. The house will have her spirit, joie de vivre, and timeless elegance. That will live on whether she’s in the atelier or not. Love seeing her staffers!

That was a true testament to the class act that she is and always will be. It’s truly a family.

Of course! I always liked to go to the 10:30 mass, because the women sat together wearing hats. Hello!

Have you been watching the Olympics?

I know! Growing up, I’d read through my favorite fashion magazines and see all of these Upper East Side bitches in their chinchilla and sable, and I was like, “This is what I want to be like when I get older.” And here I am!

I have! I watched a lot of the couples figure skating. I love it. I think they told one of the couples to tone it down because it was too risqué. I liked that part of it!

Where do you hang on the UES?

GRAYDON WATCH! WATC

I’d probably be on 77th and Park. I’m a Park Avenue woman in my head. Yes! In New York, there’s always an occasion to get dressed up, but in Sweden, there’s nothing. Where am I going to wear my minks—to the supermarket?

Spoken with Graydon?

For sure. How are Graydon and Radhika’s styles different?

“I wanted the hair to reflect the wearability of the clothes in this collection and to celebrate the uniqueness of every woman’s hair texture,” said Kevin Hughes, Moroccanoil artistic director, of his inspiration for the Veronica Beard presentation. He used, among other things, the brand’s Treatment, Perfect Defense, Curl Defining Cream, and M02000 Professional Series Tourmaline Ceramic Hair Dryer to give each model a look that was entirely her own.

“Congrats Brandusa and your amazingly tireless team. 15 years! Incredibly amazing.

MASTERS OF STYLE

New York’s stalwarts are looking hauter than ever! Accomplished, assured collections from Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera have retailers—and shoppers—salivating.

OSCAR DE LA RENTA Each season they’ve been at Oscar de la Renta, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia have made a step forward. Fall ’18 represented more of a leap. Their third runway show for the house was uniformly strong— the DNA was ubiquitous, but the Kim/Garcia spin was equally present. Women of all stripes (and botanicals) can, and should, rock these looks, because whether you’re itching for some serious daywear or a millennialfriendly ball gown, the Oscar girl is looking fresher than ever.

CAROLINA HERRERA Sob! Mrs. H’s final runway outing was a testament to her personal style, and how deeply it has resonated with the masses over the course of her storied career. Where would American fashion be without her crisp white shirting, her lean and mean day dresses, her inimitable ball gowns, and those subtly cheeky prints? Congratulations, you icon—we look forward to chatting next season in the front row.

ANNA SUI

Bohemian dream! Anna Sui’s consistency of vision means that even in the cyclical world of fashion, her meticulously developed customer remains loyal. For Fall, she sent out a jewel-toned, lamé-tinged array of rockerette ensembles. In addition to her bread-and-butter-dresses, Sui’s outerwear will prove especially winning at retail.

DEREK LAM

Yes, Derek Lam is a loyalist to American sportswear, and why not? He churns out houndstooth jackets, new-shape shirting, and easy day dresses with the very best of them. Lam showed his Fall collection at The Pool during a leisurely lunch hour—a nod to the downtown-via-uptown ladies who, yes, dine, but also work and socialize with equal aplomb.

TOMMY TALKS!

FONDEST FAREWELL!

The final leg of the TommyxGigi extravaganza will be in Milan on February 25, and if previous road shows are any indication—the London-set rock circus; New York’s carnival party—this show will be one of the most anticipated on the Milan schedule. We checked in with Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid before they head overseas. BY ASHLEY BAKER FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M

You’ve had a long and productive relationship with Gigi. What do you love best about her as a creative collaborator? Gigi is the ultimate Tommy girl, which has made her the ideal choice as a creative collaborator. I loved designing the TommyxGigi collections with her, and seeing Gigi blend her personal twist and unique take on modern style with the brand’s DNA into every piece of the collections. How has she evolved over the course of your working relationship together? Gigi has always been very hands-on with the collections, and over time her knowledge of the design process has evolved as she’s learned more of the technical aspects that go into each piece. She has spent countless hours in the studio with the team, studying a variety of fits, cuts, and fabrics. What are some of your favorite stories about Gigi from your time working together? Taking the runway show to California for TommyxGigi Season 2; it was so nice seeing Gigi share the TommyNow experience in her hometown. What do you think she’ll be doing in 10 years? Gigi has become a fashion icon. She has a strong work ethic, and her positive, down-to-earth energy and effortless cool captivate people around the world. She can accomplish anything she wants. You were a pioneer of the see-now, buy-now method of unveiling a collection. Why was that a successful approach for the brand? You have to listen to your customers, and right now they’re saying they want immediate gratification and they want experiences. They want to buy looks when they see them. With TommyNow, we’re delivering on this desire while also merging the worlds of fashion, technology, and pop culture. Taking risks is important. Without risk, there is no reward. What’s bringing the brand to Milan this season? My vision for TommyNow was to create a global platform that we could take on tour to bring our show experience to new audiences around the world. It’s all about blending fashion, entertainment, and pop culture with experiences, performances, and inspiring interactions. Why does your brand resonate so strongly in Europe? To what do you attribute its success in that market? I think our product has been successful globally because of its quality, fit, and design. While it is inspired by classic American style, we always put our Tommy twist, which makes it unique. And because we love your taste in music—what albums are on rotation these days? Any concerts you’re looking forward to seeing soon? The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, and Bob Dylan are always in heavy rotation. My kids keep me updated on the latest music and artists. I like Jay-Z’s 4:44 album and Brockhampton’s music. What are some of your favorite spots in Milan? What do you have planned for this particular trip? There are so many amazing restaurants—my favorites are Bice and Giacomo Bistrot! I love traveling to Italy; I spent time there this summer with family. We went to Venice and Capri. On my upcoming trip, I plan to work!


GIGI REVEALS!

GETTY IMAGES (7)

What does it feel like to be showing the final TommyxGigi collection? Bittersweet! Showcasing our TommyxGigi collections in different cities around the world has been amazing and surreal. It’s been an amazing journey; I’ve learned so much and am truly thankful to the whole Tommy team for embracing me, and for their time and hard work. I am proud of our fourth capsule, and so excited to showcase this collection in Milan. This season’s design process has been another memorable experience, and I hope everyone has fun with the pieces! What’s the vibe or concept for this collection? Spring 2018 is all about speed and racing. We have combined Tommy’s love of motorsports with my personal twist on sporty style. This season, we wanted to challenge ourselves while designing, taking timeless classics and reimagining them in edgy leather, luxe silks, and distressed denim. The silhouette is mix-and-match with oversize pieces combined with super skinny designs to spark a strong and confident new take on race-track star style. Why did you want to bring this particular collection to Milan? Milan is one of the fashion capitals of the world! I am excited to share the TommyNow experience in Italy. Give us your favorite story from your time working with Tommy! My favorite memory with Tommy is definitely our finale runway walk during the first TommyNow show in New York. It was the first time I ever took a bow as a designer and collaborator, which made it so special. It was also cool seeing my designs come to life on the runway for the first time. What are some of the greatest lessons you’ve learned from this experience, and from Tommy himself? Collaborating with Tommy has been a dream come true, and an incredible introduction into the world of design. He has been an amazing design mentor, and we’ve had a lot of fun creating all our capsules together. I’ve learned so much about the importance of expressing my individuality and finding inspiration in everything around me. I loved and embraced that there’s always room to improve, and I feel like I was able to carry new tools through each collection. I’m mostly grateful that Tommy gave me the time and space to learn and grow through four seasons! You’re one of the busiest people in fashion—what are your secrets for getting it all done? Getting plenty of sleep and spending time with my friends and family during my downtime. I feel that everyone needs that balance in order to continue bringing energy and passion to what they do. What’s your all-time-favorite piece from TommyxGigi? It’s hard to choose one! My standout favorites are probably from this season, because I’ve learned so much about executing my ideas from start to finish. I love the jackets and the pants. They’re proportioned exactly how I’d hoped. ß

MARKETINGFiles

OLGA KNOWS BEST Meet Olga Osminkina, PepsiCo’s VP of Hydration and the marketing exec behind some of the hottest beverages in town. Here’s how this prolific branding maven turned LIFEWTR into a serious force in the fashion world.

Let’s go way back… I was born in a little town in the ex–Soviet Union called Norilsk, in Siberia, and the only way to get there is to take a four-hour flight from Moscow. My family is descended from the entourage of Russian czars. I had an infatuation with the U.S. by the age of 6—I learned English on my own. I remember my mom asking me why I was doing that, and I told her, “Well, it’s because I’m going to live in New York one day.” And here I am! [Laughs] My mother was a doctor and an engineer, and I went to a special math school and graduated as a programmer. I was also the lead singer in a rock band, a beauty pageant winner, and I had my own TV show—I think that was the start of what I call whole-brain thinking. What brought you stateside? When I was 14, I got a scholarship from the American government, so I came to the U.S. to study when I was a senior in high school and then won a scholarship after to go to university in the U.S. When I was a freshman in college I learned that my mom had cancer. Obviously, I went home to care for her. While I was there, I needed to work, so I ended up joining a fashion retail company in Siberia. The owner decided to go to the States, and they asked me to move to California and work as the executive director. There I was, 18 years old, with a lot of responsibility and 40 people reporting to me. How did your career evolve from there? I went back to Siberia for a year and moved my mom to Moscow. When she passed, I went back to school. Upon my graduation, I got a few job offers. I chose Procter & Gamble because I wanted to have a chance at a global career at a FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y.

“BRANDS HAVE TO HAVE A CLEAR PURPOSE, AND BRING THAT PURPOSE TO LIFE IN EVERYTHING THEY DO.” Danone Waters back then was following what I was doing, and he wanted to do the same for Evian in the U.S. It was an opportunity to launch another iconic brand in a premium space. I took it on!

After being featured in Series 3 for LIFEWTR, all three designers now produce their own collections, and one of them sold a collection for the first time. What does excellent marketing mean in 2018? To me, it boils down to a simple concept: In our day and age, brands have to have a clear purpose, and bring that purpose to life in everything they do. What are the keys to your career success? It’s a mix of personality traits and capabilities—the notion of whole-brain thinking and the ability to see the big picture but also the details. I have a quest for learning that never, ever stops. Through conquering fears and maturing, I’ve been unapologetically authentic and true to myself. What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given? Never label anything as a failure. Always label everything as a learning experience. ß

We also have some beautiful satin and chenille pieces in a rich color palette. I love the combination of our copper satin pants and chenille sweater. The mix of textures is stunning. What did you make of Coterie your first year? I remember feeling completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of exhibitors. And it’s only grown larger over the years! Who are you designing for? The modern woman; she’s busy and on-the-go. She wants to look put together, but effortlessly. Our pieces are easy to wear and easy to care for.

AGNIESZKA KULAKOWSKA, CREATIVE DIRECTOR What’s new for you this season? Our campaign is really special for us; we cast women who are our actual customers. We wanted to use real women, not models because we wanted to show women can look fabulous at any age and at any size. What do you get out of Coterie? Inspiration! It’s a never-ending road of new ideas.

REPEAT CASHMERE

MELISSA PASSARELLA, CHIEF SALES OFFICER USA What’s special about this season’s lineup? Our prints—specialty plaids, herringbone, and houndstooth! Have you noticed Coterie change over the years? We’ve seen a big transition, a refocus on the “experience.” What makes for a successful Coterie booth? You have to make a statement. In the past, we’ve had a 20-foot-tall wall that features our muse Doutzen Kroes. It’s been a huge draw and a conversation starter!

THACKER

TONI HACKER, DESIGNER & FOUNDER What’s new this season for your brand? We’re introducing a lot of fantastic new handbags, all with a focus on utility, color, and texture. Lots of studs, leopard, and a colorful embossed python. Favorite thing to do at the Javits Center? We love trying new foods from different vendors—a cheese plate and glass of wine in one of the lounge areas is a lovely break during the show.

BELLA DAHL

STEVEN MILLMAN, VP OF SALES What’s most exciting about this collection? We’re introducing the biggest print assortment to date! We are super excited about the new Fall plaid.

SAIMA CHOWDHURY, FOUNDER & CEO What’s new this season for your brand? We are introducing season-less clothing. We’re using our yummiest and softest fabric called Ohm Terry. You feel it against your skin. When you’ve got insanely soft essentials year-round, why wear anything else?

LAUREN ALEXANDER, CREATIVE DIRECTOR What excites you most about the Fall lineup? Animal prints are by no means new, but we’re doing our first cheetah print. Something that simple takes more time to perfect. Animal prints can go south quick! What’s your best booth strategy? Two things we always need: a comfortable seating area and water. Placement of your booth, your real estate, matters, just as much as who your neighbors are!

Michael Kors’ FW18 collection is about to hit the runway, and you can expect a celebration of all-things “Iconic,” a major theme in the designer’s latest range. It was only natural that Kors brought his friend, renowned fashion illustrator David Downton (an icon in his own right), on board for their first-ever fashion collaboration. What drew these two legends together—literally? They explain! BY SYDNEY SADICK

DAVID DISHES!

What sparked this partnership between you and Michael Kors? We met when I drew Michael for Claridge’s, which is where he stays whenever he’s in London. I am artist-inresidence there, and about five years ago, we began a project to draw, from life, the hotel’s esteemed guests from the world of style and fashion. The spark began then, I think. You should probably ask Michael! What was it like to work with Michael? It was easygoing, direct, and professional. No drama. Michael is clear in his vision, which makes for a happy working relationship. These sorts of things only ever happen when the time is right. The stars were aligned! You created four illustrations for Michael—what was the concept? “Icons.” Not specific women but an amalgamation of archetypes, like “The Lioness” and “The Gamine.” Where did you look for inspiration? I didn’t have to look far. I think Michael and I share many of the same beauty and style ideals. How did you get into drawing? I trained as an illustrator and became a fashion FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M

illustrator more or less by accident when an art director sent me to Paris to cover the couture shows. Since then, I have worked in and around the fashion world. I am not sure what I would call myself…labels are for jam! What was your first major fashion illustration? I drew the fittings for the Valentino show at the Ritz in Paris in July 1996. A heady experience! Which illustrations are you most known for? Probably my portraits for Vanity Fair over the past five years, and the four covers I did for Vogue Australia’s 50th-anniversary issue featuring Cate Blanchett, which were also drawn from life. Have your drawings ever been used on clothing or accessories before? Once or twice, but not on this scale. You live in London—what do you like about coming to New York? The sense that anything is possible—probable, even! Which other projects are you working on? I am about to launch a new limited-edition book, DD21, celebrating my 21 years drawing at the couture shows. See you at Michael’s show? Absolutely!

Michael, why does David’s work appeal? He captures someone’s essence and style without feeling the need to draw every detail about them. It’s the magic of a great illustrator. Why was this kind of collaboration of interest? The Fall 2018 collection is an homage to personal style, and the idea of things that are iconic. I wanted to emphasize the diversity of beauty and style today. There’s no one way to look. David has been celebrating stylish, iconic women with his illustrations throughout his career, so collaborating was a natural fit for us. How did you incorporate his work into your designs? David captured the spirit of a diverse group of stylish women for the collaboration: the chic sophisticate, Brooke; the glamorous icon, Claudia; the luxe gamine, Sabine; and the modern goddess, Lola. The illustrations have been incorporated onto bags and readyto-wear. I love the idea of the items being a conversation piece. How did you and David work together? I’ve known David for a long time, so he was the first person who came to mind when we had the idea of collaborating with a fashion illustrator. The process was seamless! ß
