BOLD STYLE: The Golden Globes returned in full force on Tuesday night, bringing with it a number of standout looks on the red carpet, especially among the men.
Male celebs like Austin Butler, Billy Porter, Andrew Garfield, Jeremy Pope and more brought their fashion A-games to the 2023 Golden Globes red carpet, with some going the classic menswear route and others trying to create bold, trendy looks. impression on the audience.
Porter probably had one of the most striking men’s fashion looks on the Golden Globes red carpet. The Emmy-winning actor attended the awards in a bright pink velvet tuxedo custom-made by Christian Siriano. The dress was a nod to one of Porter’s most famous looks — the hybrid tuxedo ball gown, also designed by Siriano, that the actor wore to the 2019 Academy Awards.
As predicted by celebrity fashion stylists, many male celebrities opted for modernized, classic looks for their Golden Globes red carpet outfits, with stars incorporating modern design elements into their classic suits or tuxedos. This was seen on the likes of Eddie Redmayne, who wore a custom black Valentino jacket paired with an oversized floral stiletto; Pope, who wore a leather suit by Dolce & Gabbana, and Tyler James Williams, who wore a cropped loose suit by Amiri.
Many famous personalities did not avoid colors this year either. Take Seth Rogen, who wore a peach Dior tuxedo; Barry Keoghan, who wore a custom powder blue Louis Vuitton double-breasted suit, and Garfield, who appeared in a burnt orange Zegna casual suit over a black shirt.
Despite more male celebs leaning towards creative style options, some still stuck to their classic Golden Globes ways, like Butler in a black Gucci tuxedo; Matt Bomer in a dark purple velvet Ralph Lauren tuxedo and Henry Golding in a black Giorgio Armani tuxedo.
With a wide range of men’s fashion on display at the Golden Globes, it’s likely that viewers will continue to see a wide variety of exceptional fashion throughout the rest of the 2023 awards season. — LAYLA ILCHI
SETTINGS: Hanro settled on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
The Swiss lingerie and sleepwear brand quietly opened a new store at 1200 Madison Avenue in Manhattan last fall, marking the brand’s second store in New York and third states.
“Manhattan’s Upper East Side has the highest density of Hanro customers in the US,” explained Stephan Hohmann, the firm’s chief executive, of the decision to move into the neighborhood. “With the new store, we have managed to offer our clientele the perfect place where they can view our entire range in person.”
The 1,200-square-foot store embodies the “less is more” theme, Hohmann continued, with a large, open format that puts product at the center of the experience.
“The pared-down design and clarity of the collection has met with very positive feedback from our customers so far,” he said.
The Upper East Side store is the company’s 13th location worldwide. Other stores can be found in Beverly Hills, Chelsea, Munich, London, Amsterdam, Rome, Vienna, Dubai and Gstaad, Switzerland.
Meanwhile, Hanro, which dates back to 1884, is in full expansion mode. In addition to the business in the USA, the company is also investing in the renovation of its stores in Vienna, Munich and Switzerland. — KELLIE ELL
TIMING TBD: For much of the industry, the Sustainable Apparel Coalition’s sustainability toolkit has been the measurement method of choice.
As previously announced, the tools are up for independent review this year, an announcement that coincided with the suspension of the consumer transparency program after the Norwegian Consumer Protection Authority made a statement about the environment. The SAC announcement on Wednesday detailed further expectations and a timeline for the review.
“Obviously, it’s important to be clear that the entire suite of tools is still very active and available to all users,” Higg Index vice president Jeremy Lardeau said in a blog post Wednesday. “Revision is done to ensure continuous improvement; the context in which the tools are used is constantly evolving and so must the tools. This is true for almost any system, database, or measurement tool. We are committed to continuous improvement to ensure we provide the industry with the most powerful tools available to enable social and environmental change.”
While SAC owns and oversees the Higg Index methodology, the Higg technology platform itself hosts the data. The last independent review of the Higg Index by SAC was over five years ago. The Higg Index includes the Higg Materials Sustainability Index (Higg MSI), the Higg Product Module (Higg PM), the Higg Facility Environmental Module (FEM) and the Higg Brand & Retail Module (BRM).
The independent audit will be conducted by the big five accounting firm KPMG. KPMG is an independent auditor for other companies including Accenture, Halliburton, CitiGroup and Coca-Cola.
“While the dates remain fluid as recruitment is finalized, we hope to receive a comprehensive report and recommendation from SAC in June 2023,” Lardeau said.
The outlined process involves recruiting 30 independent professionals (10 people for each component of the Higg Index — or device, product and brand). Once panel recruitment is complete, the review process will take approximately 11 weeks. After review, the report will be published in full.
SAC awaits potential updates regarding impact.
“This is where the potential could be for MSI and Product Module updates in the form of additional impact categories and shows where and how the world has moved since the last revision – for example there are currently five impact categories. and by comparison, the European Commission’s expected PEF is 16. We hope that the review will help identify data gaps that need to be prioritized, and we can use this insight to further encourage industry to step up and provide consistently stronger and more independent validation of LCA data to she locked herself in the tools,” he said. — KALEY ROSHITSH
