Last week we showed you a steamy shot of Irina Shayk posing for VMAN, so it only seems fair that we give her boo Cristiano Ronaldo some equal coverage in the skin department. The footballer has teamed up with Daily fave Richard Chai on a line of his very own underwear that he’s kind enough to model for his customers.
Creatures Of The Wind: “Hail Hyperborea” was the theme of Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters’ Spring show this season. What on earth does that mean? Something otherworldlyâ€”mythological, to be exact. “It’s a place in ancient Greek mythology where the sun shined 24 hours and everyone lived forever,” said Peters. Sounds (and looked) good to us. The resulting collection included several gold and silver lame below-the-knee skirts and short sleeved Forties and Fifties inflected button downs that were less glitzy-glam than they were straight-up cool. As for the era references, the duo sourced the vibe and silhouettes of the collection from the photographs of Eugene von Bruenchenhein, an obscure artist who hailed from Wisconsin. The shutterbugâ€™s portraits of his wife from that time period have recently been thrust into the spotlight thanks to the Venice Biennale. Thus, the Chicago natives infused elements of Western clothing mixed with a Grease-esque â€œPink Ladiesâ€ feel. Think swing skirts with big rose accents, neck scarves, and a long pale pink blazer with a destroyed flower Swarovski crystal detail worn over a cashmere metal melange ribbed sweater and black paper nylon sport shorts that sashayed down the runway to Hisham Baroocha’s mix of the Beach Boys and Nancy Sinatra.
Outerwear brand Andrew Marc has named Richard Chai creative consultant. The designer will help the brand expand its signature spate of men’s and women’s leather jackets. The news comes on the heels of Stephen Budd’s appointment last month as the company’s new president; Budd previously served as president of brand collections at Elie Tahari.
