Style Notes: Dolce & Gabbana Releases Fall Ads; Jewelry Stocks Soar After Marriage Equality
Fashion (and marriage!) for all.
Riccardo Tisci isn't the only one with a fashion family. Dolce & Gabbana revealed their very own well-dressed fam in their fall 2015 ad campaign today, which featured men, women, children and plenty of spaghetti. Also making an appearance in the playful ads are the brand's bedazzled headphones, which made their debut at the fall 2015 "Viva la Mamma"- themed show. In an ironic twist, the family-based campaign comes just months after Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana stirred up controversy with their comments regarding what constitutes a "traditional" family. Time will tell if Hollywood's boycott of the brand has staying power. [Instagram]
In preparation for the likely surge in engagements following the Supreme Court's decision to legalize gay marriage this morning, investors have been betting on jewelry companies like Tiffany's & Co. and Signet Jewelers in anticipation of the increase in annual nuptials. Get ready to see a whole lot more bling! [Schaeffer's Research]
Though mall staples like J. Crew and Abercrombie & Fitch continue to struggle to stay afloat, more and more e-tailers are bringing their digital successes to the real world with brick and mortar stores. BaubleBar is the latest to make the transition, with their first store opening Saturday in Garden City, New York. The jewelry brand is hoping to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Warby Parker and Nasty Gal, who continue to expand IRL. [WWD]
H&M is (maybe) expanding their empire with a new brand. Bloomberg reports that the "mysterious" new label will be "nothing like" H&M or its other entities, including COS and & Other Stories, but H&M CEO Karl-Johan Persson is being careful not to give anything else away. While the Swedish retailer kept things very vague, they did mention that there are "some concrete things" set in motion. Way to leave us hanging, H&M. [Bloomberg]
