After performing during the pre-show to menswear designer Boris Bidjan Saberi’s at last years NYFW, Italian Techno duo Tale Of Us are back this year with their successful show ‘Afterlife’, debuting at New Yorks Avant Gardner.  The event will be spread across 3 rooms – The Brooklyn Mirage, the Great Hall and the Kings Hall and will include a video installation by media artist Quayola called ‘Jardins d’Été’.  Tale Of Us will accompany the video installation with their Endless album, creating a pice entitled ‘Endless- Jardins’.

Tale Of Us have a history with the fashion industry, launching ‘Afterlife x Bruno Bordese’ shoes in 2016 and worked alongside Boris Bidjan Saberi in 2017 to launch their own line ‘Afterlife x 11 by BBS’.  The music producers say they originally created Afterlife, both the event and their record label, in order to have more freedom musically and aesthetically. “It is when you have your own label and event that you can develop your vision without any compromise,” they told Forbes. According to Tale Of Us, the Afterlife event is unique from other shows because of its “overall experience for the senses.”  Afterlife has already held a successful residency in Ibiza this summer and also shown in London, Amsterdam, Miami & Mexico City amongst others.  
The New York event will also feature other talent from the Afterlife label including Recondite, Patrice Bäumel, Hunter / Game & Roland Appel and will take place on Saturday September 8th.

The Row to launch menswear this Autumn

After 12 years of producing their first luxury, minimalist collection, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are set to release a fully fledged menswear range.   Over the past few years  the twins have been experimenting with menswear, releasing one off capsule collections and shoe collaborations, and are now ready to release a full collection comprising of suits, tailored separates, denim and knitwear.  
The collection will go against the grain of the current growing sector in menswear, slogan t-shirts and hoodies, and focus on the simple, minimalist designs reflecting the work of late 80’s early 90’s work of Helmut Lang as well as the labels namesake tailoring of the area in London, Saville Row.  The tailored pieces are made in Japan “in order to achieve minimal luxurious construction” with traditional European hand-stitch techniques; the shirting is produced in France, the knitwear in Italy and the denim and T-shirts in the U.S.  The range will cost from $3,950 to $5,795 and will be available from The Rows two clothing stores in NY and LA as well as Dover Street Market, Mr Porter and other high end stores.  
After founding their luxury fashion and accessories label in 2005, based on the personal challenge to find the perfect t-shirt, the Olsens have since won three CFDA awards, two for womenswear, and one for accessories.
