London Fashion Week

Revlon files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and Gucci launches its first cocktail party. Catch up on these stories and more as we uncover the week’s top international fashion news.

Revlon Files for Bankruptcy

Revlon filed for bankruptcy after 90 years. The company is considered one of the pioneering makeup companies, founded in 1932 by Charles and Joseph Revson and Charles Lachman during the Great Depression. The cosmetics company started creating nail polish before introducing lipstick before World War II. Over the years, models such as Lauren Hutton and Cindy Crawford signed on in the 70s and 80s.

Revlon filed for Chapter 11 with significant debt and supply chain issues. “Today’s filing will allow Revlon to provide our consumers with the iconic products we have offered for decades while setting a clearer path for our future growth,” said Debra Perelman, President of Revlon.

London Fashion Week kicks off in June

London Fashion Week in June is underway. The June edition of the fashion event featured collections from emerging designers including Labrum London, AGR, Robyn Lynch and many more. It was a small-scale event with 33 designers on the schedule.

This event will continue in the future, even though London Fashion Week officially takes place again in September. “[LFW allows] London to celebrate the brilliant menswear designers we have, but also the cross-genre designers sharing during this time,” said Caroline Rush, CEO of the British Fashion Council.

Gucci enters the cocktail market

Gucci takes a step forward with its brand image. The luxury brand is launching a signature cocktail in collaboration with Giorgio Bargiani. The drink, Elisir d’Elicriso, contains dry gin, red wine, white vinegar and botanical ingredients, similar to vermouth.

“Personality makes every cocktail unique, I’m always on the lookout for something that reminds customers of cocktails and especially the moments associated with them,” Bargiani said of the drink when it launched in Florence. The drink will be available at Gucci Giardano 25 in Florence and can be purchased online through Gucci Osteria.

Pitti Uomo returns after two years

Pitti Uomo has made a huge comeback after a two-year freeze. The fashion event, a menswear trade show in Florence, celebrates tailoring and mainly showcases the latest in streetwear and formal wear. This is the first all-in-person event in two years, coming out of the pandemic-induced hiatus in 2020.

Buyers and designers spotted at the event included Neiman Marcus, Soulland, Grace Wales Bonner and many more. “There was an incredibly festive vibe at Pitti Uomo,” said Bruce Pask, director of menswear at Neiman Marcus. “We’re excited to be back here at the show, shopping and spotting the brands in person.”
