If you are a regular reader of this publication, the name Alexandre Plokhov is probably not unfamiliar to you. His original label, Cloak, run with the partner Robert Geller, made waves in New York fifteen years ago, leading to an appointment as the head of design for menswear at Versace. Plokhov has subsequently returned to New York, launching an eponymous label on his own. Like a cat with nine lives, Plokhov has been quietly back on the menswear scene, with a new project, Nomenklatura. Below is the lookbook for the brand’s second release.
It’s always a special occasion when Cire Trudon, the venerable French candle-maker, launching a new scented candle. This time the scent is tied to the theme of 2019’s Earth Day: Protect Our Species. Trudon’s candles are made by traditional methods from traditional materials – that is beeswax. Bees have been at the heart of Trudon’s manufacture for centuries, and some bee species are going extinct. For this project Trudon teamed up with the Perche regional Nature Park in Normandy, where the company operates. 4% from sales of this candle will go to protecting the dark bees indigenous to the region. The candle will debut in the US in early May.
Takahiro Miyashita of the Japanese menswear brand TheSoloist has always had affinity for New York. The only outpost for his first label, Number (N)ine, outside of Japan was here in TriBeCa. Much of it has to do with Al Albayan, who has been Miyashita’s right hand since the early N(N) days. Together, they have cooked up something for New York once again. RE:AL is TheSoloist is a pop-up shop, again in TriBeCa that opened last weekend and will run through July. The idea was to open a version of an airport gift shop. Miyashita is fond of traveling and not fond of diffusion lines, so doing something quite different but still familiar seemed like a fitting idea.
