Net-a-Porter teams with Reese Witherspoon on Draper James capsule collection

Net-a-Porter prides itself on its exclusive capsule collections, investing in them in an increasingly frequent and broad way. To that end, coming May 10 is a summer capsule collection from Draper James, the Southern-inspired lifestyle brand launched by Reese Witherspoon in 2015.

“The inspiration was a summer garden party, with all the dresses you end up buying in the summer to go to weddings and in the South to go to steeple chases,” said Witherspoon, noting she was originally connected to Net-a-Porter through Sarah Rutson, the company’s former vice president of global buying. “They were looking to connect their customer to price points that were really great for us, as well.”

Draper James’ wholesome, preppy-ish aesthetic and friendly prices are a bit of a departure for Net-a-porter, which pushes advanced fashion and luxury brands hard. Prices of the capsule start at $150 and the collection consists of dresses, tops, A-line skirts, jumpsuits with a focus on pastels and magnolia and gingham prints, as well as straw bags.

“Draper James has perfected easy summer dressing with a charmingly feminine aesthetic. It offers something new and different to the Net-a-porter customer, which we are always looking for, as well as opening us up to a new audience,” said Lisa Aiken, Net-a-Porter’s retail fashion director, noting the collection is intended as high summer and vacation dressing. “Reese was very involved in the development of this collection, so much in fact that she would Skype in for our design meetings. We took what Draper James was doing with their existing collection and gave it that Net-a-Porter spin by dropping hem lengths, exaggerating sleeves, offering off the shoulder necklines and simplifying the print. In essence it’s what Draper James was doing and adding a little bit of a fashion twist.”

If the capsule is opening Net-a-Porter up to a new audience, it’s doing the same for Draper James. The collection is the brand’s first foray into wholesale. Witherspoon noted that the label will be launching with Nordstrom next and also has two of its own new stores coming, in Atlanta and Kentucky, bringing its retail network to four stores.

Reese is currently taking part in a live panel at the Milken Institute’s Global Conference. She’ll be talking about starting and developing her businesses in the panel entitled ‘That’s Entertainment: Looking for the Next Stage’. She talks about how she had the choice of whether to take Big Little Lies to Netflix or HBO, how she identified a market for more female-driven work, and how seeing how her kids interact with media has influenced her business choices, e.g. using YouTube and social media. Watch the live stream below, and we’ll have more coverage for you after the event too…

Reese attended Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Sustainability Panel in New York City earlier today, to discuss the fashion industry’s role in protecting the environment and promoting sustainability. Reese also spoke about the role of women in film, as well as the importance of celebrities using their status to promote positive causes. Reese looked smart in a little navy dress, and accessorised with Tiffany’s jewellery. Read more about the event further down this post, and find the first few photos in our Gallery. You can read more about the work Tiffany’s does on sustainability here.

Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Sustainability Panel



TIFFANY & CO. HOSTS ‘IN CONVERSATION’ PANEL DISCUSSION ON SUSTAINABILITY

Reese Witherspoon, Michael J. Kowalski and Dudu Douglas-Hamilton joined panel to discuss ‘The Art–and Protection–of the Wild: Preserving Earth’s Treasures.’

Tiffany & Co. hosted an intimate breakfast and ‘In Conversation’ panel discussion at NeueHouse Penthouse focused on the theme of sustainability.

Panelists included Oscar® award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon, who wore Tiffany HardWear; Tiffany & Co. chairman & interim CEO Mike Kowalski; and Save the Elephants Activist Dudu Douglas-Hamilton. The discussion was moderated by Tiffany & Co. chief sustainability officer Anisa Kamadoli Costa.

Discussion topics ranged from the rising demand for corporate responsibility and the role of business and brands to the journey of Tiffany jewels and the protection and preservation of wildlife. Mike discussed Tiffany’s commitment to environmental issues, which began 20 years ago and led to the brand paving the way for sustainable practices in the luxury industry. Reese touched on the growing importance of women’s rights and diversity in film, as well as the role of celebrity and influencers in raising awareness for crucial causes. Dudu gave a personal recollection of her family’s role in pioneering elephant conservation across Africa, combatting criminal elephant poaching syndicates, and recent successes as China begins to shut down its ivory trade.

Iconic Harper’s Bazaar covers light up Empire State Building for magazine’s 150th anniversary

On Wednesday night, Harper’s Bazaar magazine celebrated its 150th anniversary in New York City by projecting its most iconic covers and shoots on the Empire State Building. Photos from Audrey Hepburn’s vintage spread to Rihanna’s recent Amelia Earhart tribute – plus Reese Witherspoon’s February 2016 cover – covered the entire Northern side wall of the famous landmark. The show, led by editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey, ran from 8:30 p.m. to midnight and was streamed live online.

A Fashion Show on the Empire State Building

On a typical New York night, you can see the Empire State Building lit up in color to honor a special occasion — green for Earth Day, for example, or red and blue for a Chicago Cubs World Series victory. But the building will look decidedly more extravagant on Wednesday, when Harper’s Bazaar will project 150 cover images — including of Audrey Hepburn, Reese Witherspoon and Gwyneth Paltrow — onto the building’s north facade to celebrate the magazine’s 150th anniversary.

The images were chosen from across the magazine’s history: There will be works from Andy Warhol and Richard Avedon, and images of Lauren Bacall and Kate Moss. The projections will be 500 feet tall and 186 feet wide and cover 42 floors of the building; they will run intermittently from 8:30 p.m. to midnight.

“What I really want is to allow New Yorkers to enjoy the greatest fashion show in the world,” Glenda Bailey, editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar, said in an interview. “It will be the greatest light show that has ever been.”

The Empire State Building installed an LED lighting system that could generate 16 million colors in 2012, and has since hosted a few of these high-definition projects, including photos of endangered wildlife and artwork from the Whitney Museum.

Planning for the project began two years ago, and needed approval from the building and from New York City. Julie Menin, the city’s commissioner of media and entertainment, wrote in a statement that the magazine “has played a seminal role in nurturing the careers of its hometown’s creative community, including Truman Capote, Andy Warhol, James Baldwin, Richard Avedon, Cindy Sherman and so many more.”

The endeavor is an initiative of Harper’s Bazaar and Tiffany & Co. Harper’s declined to say how much it will cost. “It’s wildly expensive but it will be worth every penny,” Ms. Bailey said. (The animal projections from 2015 cost more than $1 million.) For those unable to attend in person, the projections will be streamed live from Harper’s Bazaar’s Facebook page.

April 20, 2017   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", Articles & Interviews, Career, Draper James, Gallery Updates, News & Gossip, Pacific Standard, Producing, Public Appearances, Video UpdatesComments Off on Reese at Vanity Fair’s Founders Fair today

As expected, Reese took to the stage at the first Vanity Fair Founders Fair conference today, during which she spoke about being a woman in business and her recent producing work. The Founders Fair gathers female entrepreneurs from different industries to talk about why they started their companies, how they built their businesses, and the lessons they’ve learned. Reese was joined by one of her investors, Forerunner Ventures founder Kirsten Green, and the twosome were interviewed by Vanity Fair West Coast editor Krista Smith. Reese’s cute little white dress is (presumably) from Draper James. We have the first photos in our Gallery, and scroll on down this post for a short article from the event. We’ll likely have more from this event for you in the coming days …

April 14, 2017   •  Category: "A Wrinkle in Time", "Big Little Lies", "Home Again", "Wild", Articles & Interviews, Pacific StandardComments Off on Reese talks to Vogue about “Big Little Lies”

Vogue.com interviewed Reese towards the end of last month, in the run-up to the finale of Big Little Lies; here is what they talked about:

Reese Witherspoon on Who She Initially Wanted to Play on Big Little Lies—and What She Thinks About Those Critics Who Dismiss the Show as Just Another Soap Opera

We only have a few days to go until the finale of HBO’s Big Little Lies airs—why, oh why are there only seven episodes?—but we can already anticipate the massive void we’ll be feeling once the show wraps up on Sunday. Thankfully, Reese Witherspoon is here to help us cope. As Madeline Martha Mackenzie, Witherspoon’s character has become a fan favorite for her type-A personality and wicked one liners (“I love my grudges; I tend to them like little pets,” she says in an early episode). We spoke on the phone with the star and executive producer of the hit TV show, and talked about who she initially thought she would play, whether or not Ed and Madeline have a good marriage, and what she thinks about those (mostly male) critics who dismiss the show as just another soap opera.

Some spoilers ahead for those who aren’t caught up.

What drew you to Liane Moriarty’s book? Why were you excited to bring it to the screen?
I thought the book was really well plotted. I loved all the characters, I thought they were really dynamic women and very truthful in their struggles and the way that they communicated with each other. I thought it was a unique opportunity to have five really talented, diverse women on screen together, which is something that doesn’t happen that often.

Did you always want to play Madeline, or did you ever consider playing any of the other roles?
I didn’t know who I was going to play. Nicole [Kidman] really wanted to play Celeste, but I don’t know, I thought for a minute I might have played Renata. But then I was in a meeting with David Kelley and Nicole and I said I didn’t know who I was going to play and they looked at me like I was crazy. They said, “You’re Madeline!” And I said, “I am? What do you mean?” And they were like, “You are very clearly Madeline.” And I thought, “Is this an insult? I don’t know.” But then I kind of started thinking how I would do this. I started talking to Nicole, she was very helpful when I was creating the character. We added a lot of stuff that wasn’t in the book.

I haven’t read the book, but I know that David E. Kelley rewrote a lot of Madeline for you. I know the affair with her play’s director, for example, wasn’t in the book. What was behind the decision to add that?
Well, we talked about it. I just felt like everybody sort of has a secret in the show. All five of us have a secret. We’re all hiding something from each other and I felt like Madeline needed something she was hiding as well; it added a new conflict for her to resolve. It was just something interesting to play instead of just being a busy body.

On that note, do you think Madeline and Ed have a good marriage?
I don’t think of it in terms of good and bad. I think they have an active marriage, they are working on their marriage. There are aspects that are really positive and there’s parts of it there are really difficult. I don’t know what “good” is, but there’s a lot of love there, for sure.

April 10, 2017   •  Category: Articles & Interviews, Films & Projects, Gallery Updates, Video UpdatesComments Off on “Penelope” Gallery update

Over the past few days I’ve reverted to working on the Movies section of our Gallery, and have updated the Penelope section. Some of the photos have been replaced with HQ versions, but best of all we have HQ photos from a promotional shoot Reese did for the film, plus gorgeous HD screencaptures from the film! This is one of my favourite Reese films – it’s charming and sweet, and Reese is hilarious in her small part as Penelope’s friend Annie … it’s a very watchable, fun movie.

To stick with the Penelope theme, within this post are videos of Reese’s co-stars talking about her, a couple of interviews with Reese about the film (it was the first that she produced through her former and first production company, Type A Films), and trailers.

Enjoy the updates 🙂

Annie: “I was just thinking … I might get a little work done myself … for my ears, they just kind of stick out up here a little on the top – I mean I’m no Penelope!”
