Fashion

BELLA Hadid has started the Christmas countdown by filming a saucy video for the first day of the Love magazine advent calendar.

The Victoria’s Secret star is seen working up a sweat by performing an aerobics routine to mark the first day of December.

The saucy clip is sure to raise temperatures as the winter chill sets in ahead of the festive season.

Bella has slipped into a 1980s-style leotard to pump iron in the sweat-drenched clip.

It appears to be inspired by Eric Prydz’s saucy video for his 2004 single Call On Me.

She also sits on a rubber exercise ball, lifts weights and tries out yoga poses during the film, which was shot by Rankin.

In one scene she is also seen seductively munching on a banana, and smoking a cigarette.

The video, which is titled Aerobics, marks the first installment of the magazine's annual Christmas countdown.

It's Bella's fourth appearance in the star-studded digital advent calendar.

This year's will feature the cream of the entertainment world, featuring stars including Abbey Clancy, Daisy Lowe, Emily Ratajkowski, Heidi Klum, Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian.

Bella's model sister Gigi Hadid is also slated to make an appearance in the Christmas countdown.

upon us, Love Magazine has finally kicked off its advent calendar. Like any other advent calendar, it offers a new surprise every day until Christmas, but in this case, the treats are model- and celeb-starring videos. For day one, the mag starts out strong with a steamy workout vid starring Bella Hadid.

The model stretches, flexes and breaks a sweat in full '80s garb (though she was born in '96) wearing high-cut leotards, sweat bands, leg warmers et al. And her decade-appropriate beauty look consists of glittery colored eyeshadow and lip gloss, to top it all off.

In the short film, directed by Rankin, an oiled-up and well-tanned Hadid conducts the hottest workout plan we've ever seen. Here are some highlights:

She flaunts her curves on a yoga mat.

She does a dramatic hair flip on an exercise ball.

She stormed the stage in a triumphant debut at the Victoria's Secret annual fashion show in Paris on Wednesday evening. 
And Bella Hadid proved her star power once more as she was the first supermodel to pose for this year's LOVE Video Advent  - the iconic Christmas countdown which sees sizzling snaps from the world's fashion elite.
The 20-year-old supermodel certainly kicked off the calendar with a bang as she wowed in the clip, called Aerobics, directed by Rankin, and styled by Victoria Young, in which she sported a plethora of retro-inspired sportswear.
Bella oozed sex appeal in the clip which saw her contort into a bevvy of compromising positions to achieve the sexiest video possible to kick off the sixth year of the world famous calendar.
The incredible clip was filmed to the tune of Eric Prydz's 2004 hit Call On Me, which has become synonymous with saucy exercise scenes after the seductive music video caused stirs when it was first released 12 years ago.

KERING SEES FIRST 'TANGIBLE' RESULTS OF GUCCI REBRANDING

Fashion

Gucci had an up-and-down 2015 as Alessandro Michele's rebranding made its way to customers' eyeballs, subconsciousness and stores. But finally in the last quarter of the year and the first quarter of 2016, comparable sales grew by 4.8 percent and 3.1 percent, respectively. And on Thursday, Kering reported Gucci's best sales growth so far: In the three months ending on June 30, comparable sales increased by 7 percent. Revenue in the first half of the year increased by 3.9 percent to €2 billion, about $2.2 billion. In a conference call, Chief Financial Officer Jean-Marc Duplaix described it as the first tangible results of Gucci's massive refresh under Michele's direction after quarters of positive signs. As Kering's biggest brand, that means good news all around for the luxury conglomerate. 

Gucci's design transformation is not yet fully complete: Currently, 70 percent of sales are actually due to new product (i.e. designed by Michele), and Duplaix expects that number to rise to 90 percent by the end of the year in Gucci's own stores. But the most transformed design categories — ready-to-wear and footwear — are the biggest growth drivers while full-priced handbags also saw double-digit growth. Western Europe drove most of the sales increase in the first half of 2016, accounting for 20 percent of the comparable revenue growth, while North American sales decreased by 2 percent. Wholesale orders also stood out, as the category grew by 15 percent. 

Over at Saint Laurent, sales were through the roof, as has been typical for Hedi Slimane's collections leading up to his departure in April. Comparable sales grew up 24.2 percent in the first half of the year, thanks to double-digit growth across all retail regions and in wholesale. It amounted to €548 million in revenue, about $607 million. 

Meanwhile, things are still troublesome at Bottega Veneta, which is feeling the Asian tourism slowdown and saw leather goods sales suffer. Comparable revenue decreased in the first six months by 9.1 percent to €571 million, or $632 million. Kering says action plans are already in place, but it's too soon to see the impact of them on the bottom line.

THE COSTUME INSTITUTE'S FALL EXHIBIT WILL SHOWCASE ITS GREATEST FASHION HITS ACQUIRED IN THE LAST DECADE

Fashion

Some of the most fascinating moments in "The First Monday in May" — the documentary released this year about the 2015 Met Gala and "China: Through the Looking Glass" exhibit — were the behind-the-scenes glimpses at how theMetropolitan Museum's Costume Institute staff unboxes and prepares its priceless, unwieldily and extremely delicate collection pieces for display. Now, almost 10 years after its last acquisitions-focused exhibit (2007's "Blog.mode: Addressing Fashion"), the Institute is once again shining a light on its giant archive of more than 35,000 costumes and accessories for its fall exhibit: “Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion." 

Organized by assistant curator Jessica Regan, the exhibit will include 60 of the Costume Institute's most significant acquisitions made over the past decade, including a 2015 John Galliano for Maison Margiela dress, a 1980s Halston gown and a 2010 Viktor & Rolf ball gown. According to WWD, the exhibit will also include a black embroidered dress designed by Karl Lagerfeldfor his first ever Chanel collection, remade by the designer on the occasion ofHarold Koda's retirement from the museum in Jan. 2016. In fact, a whole gallery in the exhibit will be dedicated to the many pieces donated to the Institute to honor Koda's departure.

Much in the way the Institute's current exhibit "Manus x Machina" (closing Sept. 5) breaks down how couture pieces were produced, the upcoming exhibit will shed light on the Institute's acquisition strategy. Each object "will be accompanied by an in-depth explanation of its significance within the canon of fashion history," said the museum in a statement. Newer acquisitions will be paired with older ones to show the continuity of influences and silhouettes. And ensembles will be displayed on packing crates and palettes to underscore their recent arrival to the museum. 

"Our mission is to present fashion as a living art that interprets history, becomes part of the historical process and inspires subsequent art," said chief curator Andrew Bolton in a statement. "Over the seven decades since The Costume Institute became part of The Met in 1946, our collecting strategy has shifted from creating a collection of Western high fashion that is encyclopedic in breadth to one focused on acquiring a body of masterworks."

“Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion" will be on view in the Anna WintourCostume Center from Nov. 8 to Feb. 5 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute.

BURBERRY SUES RAPPER AND PRODUCER BURBERRY PERRY FOR TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT [UPDATED]

Fashion

Scroll down for updates to this story.

Burberry filed a lawsuit on Tuesday with the Southern District of New York against rapper and producer Burberry Perry for trademark infringement and dilution. Official court documents state his real name is Perry Moise; he chose "Burberry" as part of his stage name and used the label's signature check print and equestrian logo to promote his self-titled EP, which was digitally released in May and includes a track featuring Kylie Jenner that online outletsimmediately publicized as her singing debut.

Burberry reached out to the hip-hop artist upon the release of his debut album with a cease and desist, only to receive no response from Moise or his team. The attempts continued through June and July with multiple emails, follow-up letters and phone calls. Representatives for Burberry have provided Fashionista with the following statement:

As a global luxury brand, Burberry considers the protection of its intellectual property vital for the health of its business and to safeguard its customers. As such, Burberry goes to great lengths to protect its creative designs and will take all necessary action against the abuse of Burberry trademarks.

Burberry, the brand, is seeking "immediate injunctive relief," which means that instead of providing any monetary damages — such as the February casewith JCPenney's alleged knockoffs — Moise should simply remove any and all association with the company, including a new stage name. The request is also somewhat timely as Moise has plans to release new music in August, drop a mixtape in September and go on a multi-city tour throughout the U.S. and Canada during those months. And as the go-to producer for rapper (andYeezy model) Lil Yachty, we have a feeling he'll be tagging alongside hisheadlining tour in August, too.

One of the main reasons why Burberry is taking action against Moise is because music is heavily associated with the brand. In 2010, the company founded Burberry Acoustic, a digital platform that commissions and celebrates emerging artists with exclusive performances. In September of last year, Burberry was also the first fashion brand to get its own channel on Apple Music. Concerns from the legal team include the possibility of consumer confusion during instances when "Burberry" is searched on music streaming outlets like Apple Music or Spotify.

On another note, this could also explain why Gucci hasn't started any legal beef with rapper Gucci Mane. Aside from dressing musical acts like Florence Welch and Beyoncé, the brand has little involvement in the music industry. In February, creative director Alessandro Michele teamed up with street artist Gucci Ghost, who regularly uses the Italian brand's double-G logo in his work, for Gucci's fall collection.

We reached out to Moise's management for comment but did not hear back by press time. Though Moise's Burberry Perry stage name still remains, imagery related to the British brand have since been removed from the artist's Soundcloud page and social media accounts, where you can kind of get the idea of what he thinks about this whole infringement thing anyway.
