Fausto Puglisi shows first look at Cavalli couture
Couture, but make it cryptic. Roberto Cavalli is set to officially launch couture during the upcoming Cannes Film Festival, according to sources. To whet clients’ appetites, snippets of the collection have been teased on Instagram, with creative director Fausto Puglisi sharing five one of a kind looks on his own platform accompanied by mysterious captions. So, what to expect? Sizzling cut-outs, nude panels, embellishment, feathers, and nods to animal prints—which all makes sense, for a house with codes so rooted in sexiness and sensuality. With the likes of J.Lo, Ciara, Lily James, Meg Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, and Anitta among his many fans, we can’t wait to see what Cavalli x Cannes x Couture has in store. Watch this space.
Century 21 is coming back
There’s few New Yorkers who don’t have a story of a major Century 21 designer score—and in music to everyone’s ears, the discounted department store is set to return. Century 21 will be re-opening its doors in the Financial District in spring 2023. The news comes after the Gindi family, who founded the company, bought it back when its then-owner declared bankruptcy and closed all stores in 2020. “This is very exciting for us. This is a family business, founded by our father, so it’s not only a business decision, it’s an emotional one, too,” co-CEO Raymond Gindi said of the news. “We also owe it to our customers. Keeping Century 21 going is something we have been pushing toward ever since we closed.”
