London-based contemporary men’s wear design duo, Ada + Nik (Ada Zanditon and Nik Thakkar) has become the first ever British brand to be selected for the prestigious Gen Art 2015 award at New York Fashion Week (following in the footsteps of eponymous labels including Rodarte, Zac Posen and 3.1 Phillip Lim). 

Gen Art, the 20-year-old organization that is known for launching new talent in film, fashion and art, has selected Ada + Nik who will show during Gen Art Fresh Faces in Fashion. The event will take place Sept. 9 at Pier 59 in New York City at 7 pm.

Keri Ingvarsson, co-owner of Gen Art, will produce Fresh Faces 2015, alongside a fashion jury led by Christina Neault, a programming fashion consultant to Pier 59 and former IMG executive, and supported by Betsey Johnson; fashion TV personality and host Robert Verdi; actress, model and lifestyle blogger Lydia Hearst; Gen Art Fresh Faces designer alumnus Duckie Brown, and George Wayne. The last time Gen Art showed in New York was September 2012.

“We were looking for sophomore designers that had retail outlets or e-commerce, yet wanted to expand their reach globally,” Neault said. “Creativity and innovation in their collection were very important in our selection process, as well as the designer’s press coverage and industry accolades.”

Fresh Faces in Fashion has lined up sponsors including Aveda, DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse, Peroni, Saint Geron, Voga Italia, and Alice Bow.

In addition to being featured in September’s New York Fashion Week show, Ada + Nik will be mentored and advised by members of the Gen Art fashion jury. Finalists will be afforded retail opportunities through Gen Art’s New York and Los Angeles showrooms and at major trade shows, as well as a holiday concept shop with a retail or e-commerce partner that hasn’t been disclosed yet. The 2015 winner — who will be named Sept. 9 — will be awarded a yearlong incubation program to accelerate their career in partnership with Gen Art, including strategy, financial, marketing and sales resources. Gen Art sought nominations through 50 fashion universities, colleges and educational programs worldwide, inviting each institution to nominate their fashion alumni who would benefit most from the new Fresh Faces. There were more than 1,000 entries.

TUMI, the international travel, business and lifestyle accessory brand has teamed up with multi-award winning and street-savvy clothing label PUBLIC SCHOOL,  giving fashion lovers and jetsetters worldwide another reason to travel in style.

PUBLIC SCHOOL, the creation of New York designers, Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, have collaborated with TUMI to create a six piece collection encompassing both brand philosophies of high-quality design that brings its customers functional superiority and technical innovation. Each travel piece will prominently feature the PUBLIC SCHOOL design aesthetic, including the monochromatic color scheme of which the label is known for. 

One of the up-and-coming conspirators in the new wave of young irreverent American mens/womenswear, PUBLIC SCHOOL drew inspiration and energy from their hometown of New York City, and have injected it into the collaborative collection which includes a 21" carry-on and 24" check-in wheeled bag, travel satchel, backpack, day tote and dopp kit. The wheeled pieces are crafted from TUMI's own Tegris®material in Black Graphite with a laser-cut netting overlay, creating a weave pattern effect on the exterior of the cases. The overlay of materials is based on an architectural idea of mimicking the weave of a garment and applying it to manmade material. This pattern, featured throughout the collection, is infused into the hardware and luggage tags of the day bags and accessories, as well as the 2-D effect on the bottom of the travel satchel. Nylon and leather are incorporated into the day bags and dopp kit, while the tote, described by the PUBLIC SCHOOL duo as the 'quintessential bag' was designed in leather and suede.

Growing up, both Chow and Osborne attended public school in New York City, which had a huge influence on their lives and individual style. Each piece in the collection bears a "PUBLIC SCHOOL x TUMI" embossed story patch on the interior lining as well as a rubber tassel inspired by the key chains and "strings" that hung from the designers' backpacks in high school.

The PUBLIC SCHOOL x TUMI collection will be sold exclusively starting September 2015 at TUMI collection stores,, select retailers and specialty stores globally.

Introducing Women's Fall/Winter 2015 by WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie

WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie is pleased to present its Fall/Winter 2015 women’s collection, a celebration of the modern woman who has designed her own life as it continuously evolves to encompass many new and diverse roles. 
A professional, an artist, a mother, a lover, an entrepreneur - today’s woman has the option to choose and embrace the lifestyle that empowers and supports her, as she in turn nurtures and supports her nearest and dearest. She is Mother Earth, representing the qualities we find most comforting, inspiring and strong.
This season, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie co-founders Byron and Dexter Peart were inspired to honor today’s woman by creating a collection that respects tradition while also encouraging an exploration of things to come.  Recognizing that never before has ease of mobility played such an integral role in our everyday lives, this collection further develops Byron and Dexter’s belief in hands-free simplicity for the on-the-go woman. 

Every item in the collection is designed to support the modern woman with as many utilitarian considerations as possible. The collection introduces new styles such as the Mini Piper, a compact take on the popular Piper backpack which launched last season, the Portela, a sleek yet spacious wallet, and the Lenoir, an opulent fur glove perfect for the winter season. The new leather Logan and Strauss shoulder totes are the ultimate two-in-one styles; available in a multitude of colors, the cleverly-designed bags are completely reversible to reveal an alternative, playful metallic side.  
Collection favorites also make an appearance, such as the cross-body City Bag and the free-spirited, edgy Demiranda, this time updated with matte and metallic leathers as well as rich fabrics and textured finishes. Throughout the collection, leathers in warm, saturated earth tones of spiced orange, burnt umber and cocoon are juxtaposed with contrasting fabrics such as rose gold metallic and rich boucle in almond and carbon.
Convertible totes, zippered wallets and utilitarian backpacks provide unquestionable versatility and ease as they seamlessly transform from day-to-night, formal-to-casual, and work-to-weekend. Leather accessories such as the Arlanda, Columbo and the new Madeline glove stylishly punctuate any ensemble--making for ideal holiday gifts--while fall’s Liberty print, Aurora, features splashes of jewel tones, lending a luxurious touch to the collection’s interiors.  
This season, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie extols the virtue of the modern woman, rooted in traditions while always branching out to discover the extraordinary.
