We have two sides to We. It’s a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde situation – without the evil elements. One side wants nothing more than to laze around all day at home, wearing lounge sets and sweats while watching TV, snacking and dozing off for a nap whenever we feel the need. The other side is just the opposite. He wants to dress up, take wearable selfies, hang out with friends, and live a spontaneous social life.

You never really know when each side is going to take over, and that makes perfecting our wardrobe a bit difficult. We don’t want to fill our closet with too many pairs of pajamas, but we don’t want it overflowing with party dresses either. That’s why we love parts that work for both sides of We. We need something comfy enough for the couch but chic enough even for a date night. Something like this dress!

MARKETS DIRECT Luxury stocks to the rescue!


January 19 – Welcome home to real-time market coverage from Reuters reporters. You can share your thoughts with us at [email protected]


Things looked pretty bad about an hour ago when European futures plunged into the red after a tough session on Wall Street where banking stocks, thanks to Goldman Sachs earnings, and tech stocks were hammered.

But European equity markets have so far avoided a sell-off thanks to luxury stocks that are to Old Continent investors what FAANGS are, or were, to American traders.

Shares of Switzerland’s Richemont topped the STOXX 600 and rose 7% after the world’s second-largest luxury group reported demand for chains for jewelry and watches.

This has had a positive effect on the whole sector and French heavyweights LVMH, Kering and Hermès are on the rise and lift the Paris CAC 40 benchmark index above the waterline mark.

Burberry in the UK was another strong performer, up nearly 5% as the luxury brand said its full-year profits would beat market expectations.

The retail sector (.SX86P) was also on track, gaining more than 2%, with Spain’s Inditex leading the pack after Goldman Sachs upgraded the stock on earnings and falling. resilient cash flow.

Marks & Spencer, Zalando (ZALG.DE) and Kingfisher (KGF.L) all rose more than 2%.

The tech sector (.SX8P) is also showing signs of resilience, losing just 0.1%, a better fate than the Nasdaq last night.

The start of the earnings season was also quite positive for Pearson shareholders, who saw the stock jump 5% after the education group raised its forecast.

Despite all the turmoil in financial markets yesterday, the Nasdaq getting dangerously close to correction territory and closing below a key 200-day moving average is probably the least surprising feature for investors.

After all, dumping expensive tech and growth stocks when bond yields rise as the Federal Reserve embarks on an interest rate hike cycle is considered basic stock market trading 101.

Overweighting bank stocks amid tighter monetary policy is another common trade, but this one backfired dramatically when Goldman Sachs (GS.N) missed quarterly earnings expectations. and plunged 7% as higher spending weighed on its fourth-quarter earnings. Read more

Traders are now waiting for Bofa (BAC.N) and Morgan Stanley (MS.N) to update the market today and see if the key theme for this new earnings season could simply be rising costs, including wages, which weigh on profits in all sectors.

With European and US equity futures down more than 0.5%, it’s fair to say that there is palpable uncertainty on this front, as the other structural forces in this tightening cycle are only strengthen in these first days of 2022.

The dollar is inflated against rival currencies with benchmark US Treasury yields trading at two-year highs as the Federal Reserve shows signs of being more aggressive in tackling inflation while in Europe , the yield on German 10-year bonds exceeded 0% for the first time since May 2019.

Moreover, the latest data shows that UK consumer prices rose to 5.4% in December, their highest level since March 1992, a level that could encourage the Bank of England to accelerate the tightening. Read more

Even the cautious Bank of Japan warned investors that inflation could accelerate faster than expected if commodity costs continue to soar. Read more

It came as oil prices rose for a fourth day to levels last seen in 2014, as a breakdown in a pipeline linking Iraq to Turkey heightened concerns over already tight supply prospects. Read more

Escada America Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy – WWD


Escada America LLC filed for bankruptcy in Los Angeles on Tuesday, marking the latest stage in the brand’s financial struggles.

The initial filing with federal bankruptcy court gave only the most minute details of the division’s situation. The company estimated it owed between $1 million and $10 million to a total of 100 to 199 creditors. It also listed assets of $1 million to $10 million.

Many of the company’s largest debts were for rent and were listed as disputed. The top three creditors were all due to pay rent and included 717 GFC in New York, which owes $5.1 million; the Beverly Hills Wilshire Hotel, $2.5 million, and Samson Management Corp. in Queens, $1.3 million.

The Mittal family sold the broader Escada business to Beverly Hills-based private equity firm Regent in late 2019.

But the acquisition soon ran into the worst of the pandemic, which led to massive fashion disruption and a wave of bankruptcies.

WWD reported on June 12 that the brand is grappling with landlords taking over some of its North American stores and downsizing.

In September of the same year, a division in Germany filed for insolvency (its second trip to insolvency there, after filing in 2009).

At the time, Escada pinned the case in Germany on the pandemic.

“We made great strides to improve our operations and were on track to exceed our last year results until COVID-19 swept the world,” read an internal memo. “Unfortunately, the human tragedy and economic blight caused by the pandemic has severely affected the fashion and luxury retail sectors.”

An attorney for Escada America and representatives for Regent could not be immediately reached on Tuesday.

This story will be updated as more details become available.

Conserving Beauty is Australia’s first waterless beauty brand


Although you can hardly watch the news or browse the internet without seeing stories about climate change, water scarcity is still a topic that gets less airtime than it deserves.

World Vision estimates that 785 million people lack access to clean water, and the Global Water Institute predicts that up to 700 million people could be displaced by water shortages by 2030.

“Water is a finite resource, and research indicates that two-thirds of the population will live in a water-scarce environment by 2035,” says Natassia Nicolao, founder of the first responsible skincare brand. in Australia, Conserving Beauty. “We all need to seriously think about ways to reduce our water footprint and help to interact with water, because we cannot live without it.”

Nicolao launched the brand in Melbourne in November last year, inspired by his belief that waterless formulas could deliver more – for the planet and its people.

Most beauty products contain 70-90% water, not to mention the additional water footprint created throughout the supply chain to make each product. Still, Nicolao argues that including water in beauty products doesn’t impact its effectiveness because it can’t be absorbed through the skin. It is often used as a filler to stuff products.

“Without water, the ingredients of our formulas are not diluted,” explains Nicolao. “This means that not only are our precious natural resources never wasted, but your bottom line is never watered down.”

Conserving Beauty launched with just three products: Sea You Cleansing Balm ($48), Conserve You Face Oil ($55) and Sea Your Glow Mask ($50).

A trained biochemist, Nicolao has worked for nutraceutical companies including Swisse Wellness and Elle Macpherson’s Welleco, as well as private equity fund The Foundry (which is one of Conserving Beauty’s backers).

“It became clear to me that the world didn’t need another beauty brand, but needed a movement that could create change,” she says. “I found a way to merge my lifelong love for beauty products with my passion for impacting the planet, using my scientific background and business experience to start conserving beauty.”

Nicolao reached out to the United Nations for advice to support its Decade of Action for Water and its Sustainable Development Goals before beginning to formulate its products, which are palm oil-free, cruelty-free and vegan.

She then contacted Professor John Thwaites AM, who is Co-Chair of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network Leadership Council, who provided advice and support to her business. Thwaites, who served as Victoria’s premier climate change minister, is a global leader in sustainability and water conservation, and is now chairman of Climateworks Australia, which is helping the transition to net-zero emissions. 2050.

“John shared his insights on water conservation and emphasized that the best way to make an impact is to raise awareness and provide educational information within the beauty industry,” Nicolao said. Large format.

Conserving Beauty is the first beauty member of the Water Footprint Network, a platform for businesses and organizations to solve global water crises. It allows Nicolao to monitor and sustainably manage his company’s water footprint.

“Being water responsible means focusing on the full water footprint of our products,” she says. “We start by formulating without water, but go deeper into the supply chain and manage our water footprint at every step.”

The brand is also the first global beauty partner of the non-profit organization Seatrees, which plants and protects coastal ecosystems through mangrove restoration projects. For every product purchased, Conserving Beauty plants a mangrove tree on Indonesia’s Biak Island, helping protect it from storm surges and rising sea levels, and also providing sustainable jobs for two villages in the island. ‘Isle.

“We focus on the entire product lifecycle, because true sustainability is about transparency, traceability and how we treat everyone in our ecosystem, as well as managing our water, carbon and waste footprint. .”


Virat Kohli: Brands’ innings with King Kohli are set to continue

The resignation of Virat Kohli, India’s highest paid brand endorser, as captain of the national cricket test team is not expected to impact the number of brands he endorses and/or on what it charges in the short term, executives and experts said. Kohli’s move, announced on Saturday, follows his departure as skipper of the T20 and one-day international formats.

“It is our privilege at Puma to be in a long-term partnership with Virat. He leaves behind an exceptional legacy as a captain; he is an exceptional performer as a leader and an athlete,” said Abhishek Ganguly, Director general, Puma India and Southeast Asia. . The German sports brand has an ongoing deal with Kohli which was signed in 2017 for Rs 110 crore for a period of eight years.

Kohli’s fronts for nearly 30 brands and its annual revenue from endorsements was estimated at Rs 178.77 crore in 2021. Labels include Puma sportswear, Hero two-wheelers, MRF tires, Audi cars , Myntra fashion platform, American Tourister luggage, Vivo smartphones and Hyperice wellness. He also endorses and owns a stake in clothing and accessories brand Wrogn.

“Huge social network following an asset”

“Brands are looking for form and until Kohli is active and successful on the pitch, brands will stay with him,” said social commentator Santosh Desai, drawing a comparison to former skipper MS Dhoni. “Dhoni remains visible in advertising even now, as does Kohli,” he said. “Also, there is no one on the cricket team at the moment who matches Kohli’s stature as a player.”

A TAM Sports celebrity endorsement report based on IPL13 and IPL14, released in November last year, ranked Dhoni and Kohli as the top two celebrities in both tournaments. Dhoni was at No. 1 and Kohli in the second slot.

Executives in the sports marketing industry said Kohli would continue to dominate others in the brand endorsement space for at least another four to five years.

Sangeet Shirodkar, co-founder and managing director of sports marketing firm 27th Sports, who has worked on endorsement deals for Kohli and previously for MS Dhoni, does not expect any decrease in the value of the Kohli brand. “Virat’s personality goes beyond cricket and his massive following on social media is an asset,” he said. “Today, brands value an ambassador for their influence in the digital world more than just a captain tag.”

Bunty Sajdeh, co-founder of Cornerstone Sport and Entertainment, the talent management agency that represents Kohli, declined to comment. Other major brands that Kohli is associated with, such as Myntra and Hyperice, did not respond to questions.

Some leaders differ

Some other executives said his exit from the captaincy would gradually affect brand equity and associations. “Kohli’s departure will certainly impact both his recommendations and his price gradually, if not immediately,” said Sandeep Goyal, managing director of ad agency Rediffusion. “Historically, the lion’s share of brand endorsements in Indian cricket has always gone to the captain. Either how many brands Kohli endorses or what he charges will reduce.”

Kohli reportedly charges Rs 7.5 to Rs 10 crore per day for brand endorsements.

According to Hopper Instagram Richlist 2021, Kohli is paid Rs 5 crore per sponsored post on Instagram. He has 179 million followers on Instagram and 46 million on Twitter. He has been India’s most valuable celebrity for four consecutive years.

A celebrity brand valuation study by Duff & Phelps estimated the cricketer’s brand value in 2020 at $237.7 million, ranking him first in India, followed by actors Akshay Kumar at 118 $.9 million and Ranveer Singh at $102.9 million.

The value is based on endorsement portfolios and individuals’ social media presence.

Tips from above: Womenomics pioneer Kathy Matsui’s guide to Tokyo


This article is part of a guide to tokyo by FT Globetrotter

I am a second generation Japanese American; I grew up in California but never visited Japan when I was growing up. A Rotary Foundation scholarship brought me to Japan for the first time after college, and that’s where I learned Japanese well and met my family here. Fascinated by my ancestry, I wanted to learn more, so after completing my master’s degree in the United States, I returned to Tokyo, which has been my home for over 30 years.

The demographic headwinds in Japan are formidable. In 1999 I published my first report on “womenomics”, and my thesis was that if Japan could increase its low female labor force participation rate to reduce the gender employment gap, it could help boost GDP. To my surprise, the Japanese government adopted womenomics as part of its growth strategy in 2013, and in 2019, Japan’s female labor force participation rate of 71% actually exceeded those of the United States and Japan. Europe. So I thought I’d highlight some female leaders, chefs, and entrepreneurs who are connected to the museums, restaurants, and shops I love, along with some of my other top Tokyo tips.

One of my favorite museums is the Mori Art Museum, which specializes in international contemporary art in a variety of genres, including design, architecture, fashion and photography, under the direction of Mami Kataoka. As in many Japanese industries, art is no different: there is a shortage of female leaders. At this iconic museum in central Tokyo, Kataoka is a rare example of a leading woman who has risen to the top.

I used to work at Goldman Sachs, which is in the same Roppongi Hills complex where the museum is, so during lunch breaks I would occasionally check out their exhibits. A memorable sight was that of Chiharu Shiota, a Japanese artist based in Berlin. She created an installation in which an entire room was strung from floor to ceiling in red threads – it was very powerful.

Thanks to the influence of Kataoka, the Mori has put a major spotlight on diversity with its recent exhibition Another energy: the power to keep challenging, featuring a rare collection of works by 16 female artists from around the world aged 70 or over, most of whom are still active. The powerful sculptures, paintings and videos have focused on issues ranging from feminism to migrant history seen through the lenses of these artists, who began their careers during the turbulent period of the 1950s-70s.

Another wonderful cultural experience comes via Japanese digital art collective teamLab. They exhibit in huge warehouse-style buildings, using projected images and other techniques to create mesmerizing immersive works of art. One of my favorite places is TeamLab Planets, where you enter barefoot, and one of the facilities is a dark, water-filled room where colorful digital koi fish swim around your feet. Another of their exhibits is floating flower garden, filled with 13,000 hanging orchid plants that float up and down as you approach them, and as the boundary between you and the art dissipates, you suddenly become one with the flowers. It’s experiential, interactive and a very fun experience.

Another artist I admire is Reiko Sudo, Japan’s most influential textile designer, who founded Nuno Company (“nuno” means fabric in Japanese), and her work is part of the permanent collections of the Met Museum and MoMA in New York and the V&A Museum in London. Nuno’s Principal store is in Roppongi and you can order anything to make, like jackets, dresses and pants. Everything she does is a work of art, and I admire her mission to preserve the craftsmanship of textile manufacturing. Sudo combines traditional weaving practices with modern technology, and she uses unconventional materials such as washi (Japanese rice paper), for example, to create fabrics. Nuno is my favorite place to buy gifts for friends overseas because each item is so unique, beautiful and functional.

As for my favorite subject, food, there are two restaurants run by female chefs that I particularly like. Summer, a small one-table, six-person restaurant in Shibuya, is run by Natsuko Shoji, a young chef who, in 2020, was the first Japanese woman to win the title of Asia’s Best Pastry Chef. She’s also very good with savory dishes, but her star dishes are of course her desserts, where she takes the intersection between fine dining and art to the next level. During a recent visit, she covered the table with rose petals, then decorated a long block of ice with delicately shaped mango roses with strawberries – it was not only a stunning work of art, but also incredibly delicious.

Shoji is also a fashion icon and has developed into stardom (David Beckham and Noma chef René Redzepi are fans of his work). She’s adorable, hungry, and aiming for the top in a male-dominated industry.

A more low-key restaurant that I love is called Trip, run by owner-chef Yuri Nomura, which is also in the Shibuya area. Nomura is synonymous with organic food, from farm to table; his dishes are both appetizing and healthy. Her menu changes daily based on what’s available (she sources locally from a network of sustainable producers, including her parents’ farm). Its cuisine is a mixture of Western and Japanese cuisine. Every dish at Eatrip is delicious, but Nomura makes the most amazing lemon pie. It’s very thin – but once you take a bite of it, your mouth will explode with the combination of fresh citrus flavors and a delicate cookie crust. She also makes a delicious appetizer platter made up of grilled vegetables, pâté, tapenades and fresh toasted bread, which is one of the must-haves on her menu.

In Japan, there is a category of restaurants called B-kyu, which stands for “Rated B” and refers to cheap but delicious “soul food.” The most popular B-kyu foods include gyoza Dumplings, onigiri (rice balls) and Yakitori, among others – and there are so many great options to choose from. But the best gyoza can be found at Gyozaro Harajuku in the Omotesando district of Shibuya. Here you can have six large steamed or fried dishes gyoza and a bowl of rice and chicken stock for around £3. You can order them with or without garlic – get them with the latter. It’s the most satisfying meal, especially on a winter’s day, and everything is cooked to order. You can buy frozen gyoza also, what we did during lockdown for a quick dinner at home. It’s a simple and basic meal, but it’s the most delicious dumplings.

To browse all the culinary treasures of Tokyo, we regularly walk in Yoyogi Park, an oasis of nature in the middle of this giant metropolis. Our children are grown now, but when they were little, Yoyogi was where they learned to ride bikes and where we had many birthday parties. Since we became empty nests, my husband, Jesper Koll, and I take our dogs to Yoyogi and he jogs there almost every day. From cherry blossoms in spring to fall foliage, it’s a lovely spot year-round. As many Japanese people tend to live in small houses, the park is also a training ground for musicians, athletes and actors. You see talented people playing their musical instruments, skipping or acrobatic teams showing off tricks, or troupes of actors rehearsing. This is everyone’s stage.

Finally, one thing I love to do that I don’t do often enough is ride a yakatabune. They are historic boats dating from the Heian period (794 to 1185) that were used by members of the imperial court to recite poetry, share secrets or sympathize with friends in private. Today they are used for entertainment. I have rented them with friends and colleagues – we have many fond memories of riding the yakatabune. They can be Reserve for a few hours in the evening to cruise Tokyo Bay, and come with a Japanese meal, drinks and, of course, a karaoke machine, making for a very fun and lively evening. Living in Tokyo, you often forget you’re near the water because of all the skyscrapers, but these boat rides remind you that you’re living on an island, and the city’s nightscape is especially spectacular from the bay.
