Coach opens new concept store, Coach Play
Coach Play Chicago is the first in a series of concept stores that aim to encourage “customers to play in Coach spaces inspired by their communities,” according to the brand. There will be multiple other stores in cities across America opening this year. Beyond the typical shopping experience and  local elements such as a community message board and historically relevant decor (street signs, marquees, baseball glove art), the store will feature a Coach Create space, where customers can create customized pieces with monograms, embellishments and more. The Chicago store is located at 444 N. Michigan Ave. {Fashionista inbox}

How Moncler is able to keep up with high fashion brands during fashion month
For Business of Fashion, Luca Solca breaks down Moncler‘s fashion marketing initiative, Genius. The skiwear brand would previously participate in seasonal runway partnerships with designers such as Thom Browne and Giambattista Valli, but has now come up with its own unique way to individually market itself to the fashion-month crowd. Rather than participating in runway, Moncler has staged parties over the course of multiple nights in large-capacity venues, where over 10,000 people are able to attend. Solca says expanding the number of people able to take and post photos of the new collection in this way “is a powerful social media multiplier no matter that each Genius attendee isn’t an influencer.” {Business of Fashion}

Unathi Nkayi’s gym session to help women regain their strength

  • September 13, 2022

Body positivity icon Unathi Nkayi has ventured into hosting gym sessions to raise awareness about the importance of staying healthy.

The fitness advocate will conduct an outdoor gym session at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens in Roodepoort, west of Johannesburg on Saturday.

Nkayi, who has shared her massive weight loss journey over the years, said exercising is important in several ways, noting that it is not only about losing weight.

“I have always been an active person having played sports my entire life. I know the benefits of exercising in general assist with mental health, better skin, and better metabolism,” said Nkayi.

“I am of the notion that sharing is caring, and I want all of us to be happy in being the best versions of ourselves. I can’t change people’s lives when it comes to health, it’s a personal journey. I can only be there to assist.”

Her gym session on Saturday will aim to celebrate women’s month by helping other women get rid of their insecurities. This she plans to do by reminding them of their strength, power, and beauty through the gym session.

“Be who you are. Embrace yourself and celebrate that which makes you unique and beautiful. It’s the best gift you can give yourself and it’s the very best example you can set for others,” she said.

Nkayi stressed that training secretes endorphins, also known as natural pain relievers, and added that it is important to feel happy each day. “Because as women we birth and raise nations, it’s important that we start with ourselves first. We cannot give what we do not have,” she added.
