Style Notes: Gwen Stefani Launching Beauty Line; John Galliano Takes Maison Margiela Fur-Free
In case you missed it.
Gwen Stefani Reportedly Launching Skincare and Cosmetics Brand [TMZ]
TMZ has reported that Gwen Stefani filed for a trademark last month under the umbrella of her L.A.M.B. brand (founded in 2003) for a new cosmetics and skincare brand to be called P8NT (that would be “paint”). Makes sense, given the singer’s signature red lipstick and winged eyeliner. According to the filing, Stefani’s trademark application includes at least 50 items — lipstick, eyebrow gel, concealer, mascara, false lashes and nails, shaving cream, anti-wrinkle cream and more — and notes a potential website that would include video tutorials and articles.
New Line From Gant Features Recycled Ocean Plastic [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
The Stockholm-based brand fashion Gant on Tuesday launched a new Beacons Project shirting line for men and women crafted with polyester filament made from upcycled plastic collected from the ocean. The line is available in stores and at gant.com. Known for its shirting, Gant styles have been worn by Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Gosling, Ben Affleck and Ashton Kutcher. The initiative picks up on a growing movement toward sustainability in fashion. Last month, Adidas announced that it sold 1 million pairs of shoes made of recycled ocean plastic last year (that it began producing last May) and plans to sell 5 million pairs this year with a longer-term goal of using upcycled plastic in all of its products by 2024. Stella McCartney has also created products from ocean plastic-based yarns and fabrics, and 64 companies (including luxury conglomerate Kering’s stable of brands) submitted plans in January to increase sustainability by 2020 as part of efforts by the Global Fashion Agenda.

Heidi Klum and Emma Roberts Don Larissa Bond’s New Jewelry for Iconery [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
In 2016, Ivka Adam launched the fine jewelry company Iconery with an on-demand 3-D production model and a series of capsule lines created by influencers and celebs. Iconery’s latest partnership is with actress/model turned jewelry designer Larissa Bond on a “Life” themed line that spells out the word on a necklace, a ring and three bracelets ($95 to $630) available in 14-karat gold, 18-karat yellow gold or sterling silver. The new collection (already being worn by Heidi Klum and Emma Roberts) was feted last week at a party at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood hosted by Project Runway producer Desiree Gruber, who wore the $95 Life Tag bracelet stacked with a collection of other precious bangles, many gifted to her by her husband, actor Kyle MacLachlan.
