Paris Couture Week Day 2: Live Coverage

CHANEL:
Virginie Viard emerged from lockdown with a couture lineup so unapologetically maximalist, it could have walked straight off an Eighties runway. Party dresses, bling and Marie-Antoinette shoes were just some of the ingredients of her presentation during the online edition of Paris Couture Week.
“It’s an eccentric girl with a touch of the Eighties. I wanted something joyful,” the designer said in a preview last week, as photographer Mikael Jansson shot models Adut Akech and Rianne Van Rompaey in an adjoining studio for the show video: a one-minute, 22-second burst of images spliced with grainy black-and-white footage.

ALEXIS MABILLE:
Alexis Mabille showcased his fall couture collection with a virtual show featuring a single model and held inside a shocking pink box.
It’s not the first time the designer has skipped the runway. In recent years, he has experimented with showing his designs in static presentations and even a photo exhibition. This time around, he leveraged the power of social media, teasing his presentation with “making-of” videos.

AGANOVICH:
Under lockdown in Denmark and with their Paris studio closed, it was a time of introspection for Nana Aganovich and Brooke Taylor. Unable to produce a new collection, the design duo started out filming video interviews for their online

Frame Expands With Debut of Its First Footwear Collection

Designing the brand’s own shoe collection was the natural next step in Frame’s evolution, according to cofounders and co-creative directors Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson. 
Footwear is not entirely new to Frame, which launched a small sneaker collaboration several seasons ago and a boot capsule created with Tamara Mellon last fall. But this is the first time that Torstensson and Grede have truly explored the category in its entirety. 
“It is part of the whole look for the Frame woman, which has been our ambition since Day One,” Torstensson said. “It was a very natural build. We famously started with jeans but then added a head to toe look with ready-to-wear and also have handbags.” 
In many ways, the recent boot capsule with Tamara Mellon served to inform what the Frame woman wanted from the brand including style, the delivery of exceptional quality, comfort and a great price. “We don’t always want to wear sneakers and I don’t think a lot of women always want to wear heels,” Grede said. “So we wanted to have just really chic, casual shoes that deliver for [her] lifestyle.” 

Frame’s shoe collection launches with styles that are designed for everyday comfort featuring sandals, mules, ballet flats and more.

These Are the Top Searched Celebrities During the Coronavirus Quarantine

Celebrities may be just like us — that is, under quarantine — but there are several stars still generating interest online.
From brief paparazzi sightings, to tweets and videos urging everyone to stay at home, a new report by data trends provider, SEMrush has tallied the most-searched celebrities during the coronavirus quarantine.
Kylie Jenner received the top spot on the list with 450,000 Google searches after the reality TV star and beauty mogul was seen in paparazzi photos in late April going on a snack run in a tie-dye matching set with no makeup or shoes. Jenner went viral for her rare natural look, which is a stark contrast to the full makeup looks that she’s known for.

On a more controversial note, SpaceX and Tesla founder Elon Musk received the second spot after his tweet stating “the coronavirus panic is dumb” from March 6 went viral. The tweet resulted in over 300,000 Google searches.
Other celebrities went viral for their at-home quarantine posts, including actor Samuel L. Jackson’s video reading the new book “Stay the F–k at Home,” which has over 3.1 million views,

Nike Air Jordan Sneaker Sets New Auction Record

Sotheby’s has set a new sneaker auction record with the Nike Air Jordan 1 sneakers sold off earlier this month.
The sneakers Jordan played in in 1985 sold for $560,000 in the online auction, exceeding the previous record held by the Nike Waffle Racing Flat “Moon Shoe” from 1972 by more than $100,000.
The auction house teamed with collector and consignor Jordan Geller, who founded sneaker museum Shoezeum, on the online auction. Geller reached out to Sotheby’s to auction the shoes after the popularity of the ESPN and Netflix documentary “The Last Dance.” The sale coincided with the last episode of the documentary that airs on May 17.
The Peter Moore-designed mid-length sneakers were produced and worn during 1985 and signed by Jordan in permanent marker. Bidders ranged in age from 19 to over 50 from four continents, and 70 percent of the bidders were new to Sotheby’s. The value reached $300,000 within the final 20 minutes of the start of the sale and eventually sold at more than 3.5 times its $150,000 estimate.
“We are extremely excited about today’s record-breaking result,” said Brahm Wachter, Sotheby’s director of e-commerce development. “Building off the momentum from our debut sneaker sale last year, which previously set
