Dreams for NoMad Hotel... In the Bag?... Art Opening at Dior...

French designer Jacques Garcia has decorated hotels in Paris... Could Akris, the Swiss maker of luxury clothing, be mulling an eventual foray into accessories?


TAILORING TACTICS: Aiming to bring the tailoring tradition to university students, Brioni, the Italian luxury men’s wear label, has signed its second consecutive partnership agreement with London’s Royal College of Art and will sponsor its men’s wear fashion design course for three years. Brioni’s master tailor will work with the college in deciding on the year’s curriculum, as well as teaching students the trade. In order to complete their degree, students will spend a week of hands-on tailoring at the Brioni Tailoring School in Penne in Abruzzo, halfway down Italy’s boot-shaped peninsula. Upon completion of the degree, three students will be selected by a panel of industry experts and a prize for their work will be awarded in Milan during men’s fashion week next June. Last year’s laureates displayed their creations in the windows of London’s Harrods, Takashimaya in Tokyo and Bergdorf Goodman in New York.
