Each item will be designed by Kravitz Design as envisioned by Lenny Kravitz. Prices range from $100 for accessories up to $100,000 for the limited-edition motorcycle.</p> <p>Supporting the launch is Mark Styler Co. Ltd., which is opening several Fred Segal retail locations in Japan beginning next year. Fred Segal x Kravitz Design will be sold at Fred Segal stores in Tokyo and Los Angeles, as well as the Philippe Starck-designed SLS Las Vegas, where Fred Segal will open seven boutiques next year, including stores for womens, mens jeans, jewelry, shoes and home. The collection will also be sold at<a href="http://fredsegal.com/">fredsegal.com</a>.</p> <p>When we thought about launching Fred Segals first designer collaboration in 50 years, we approached Lenny and his team at Kravitz Design, said Adam I. Sandow, chairman and chief executive officer of Sandow. With his L.A. roots, sense of style and impeccable eye for design, Lenny really understands the Fred Segal brand and aesthetic. He was the perfect partner for our inaugural exclusive collection.</p> <p>Sandow said the first products will be launched in the stores in the second quarter of next year. There will be 10 products on a rolling schedule over the course of 12 months. Eventually, they plan to build a wholesale business around it, starting in 2015, said Sandow.</p> <p>The collection marks Kravitz Designs first collaboration with a retailer. I grew up shopping at Fred Segal and have always felt connected to the brand and what it stands for a vibe of laid-back luxury that resonates far beyond Los Angeles, said Kravitz, founder of Kravitz Design, who wears many hats as a rock musician, writer, producer, designer and actor. (He plays the role of Cinna in The Hunger Games films).Kravitz Design has done multiple projects ranging from chandeliers for Swarovskis Crystal Palace Collection to reinventing Starcks classic Kartell Mademoiselle chair. It has also designed suites at the SLS Hotel Miami Beach, as well as a two-story penthouse recording studio at the Setai Hotel and Residences and the 47-story bayfront condominium project Paramount Bay, both in Miami.</p> <p>The deal between Fred Segal and Kravitz Design was brokered by Culture + Commerce, a Sandow company and design management agency that represents both brands.</p> <p>With a shared pulse on the latest trends and a background in California style, putting Kravitz and Fred Segal together was a natural connection, said Michele Caniato, president of Culture + Commerce.</p> <p>Fred Segal, known for dressing celebrities, rock stars and locals, is rooted in Hollywood culture. Founded in 1961, the retailer was acquired by Sandow in 2012. Last month, it opened a 2,200-square-foot location at the new international terminal at Los Angeles International Airport. In the works are branded products, e-commerce and lifestyle destinations around the world, starting with Tokyo in fall 2014.</p> <p>Sandow said Fred Segal plans to open another store in Los Angeles next year and is actively looking for space in Miami. As for the Los Angeles stores, he said, Santa Monica is doing well, and Melrose is doing even better.Sandow said the Fred Segal store at LAX is the largest store in the airport, except for the multibrand duty-free mall. He noted that LAX is at 40 percent retail capacity and its already exceeding expectations. Over the next 12 months, it will be at 100 percent capacity. s been a huge success so far, said Sandow. Price does not seem to be a barrier, he said, citing strong sales with custom leather jackets by Gregory Siff retailing for between $2,000 and $3,000, and sunglasses by Anna-Karin Karlsson and Leisure Society, ranging in price from $600 to $900. He said the store is mostly catering to international travelers who are leaving Los Angeles. They want to take a piece of L.A. home with them, he said.</p> <p>From <a href="http://lennykravitz.com/">lennykravitz.com</a></p>Tue, 05 Nov 2013 13:49:00 -0800http://lennykravitz.com/news/188143View the final trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire<p><span style="color: rgb(64, 64, 64); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue'; font-size: 13px; text-align: justify; ">Catch Lenny in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in theaters November 22nd.

I was invited to meet Dustin Hoffman for a film he was directing. I was not allowed to read the script in advance, so I felt completely unprepared to meet the master. The man I grew up watching, the giant, the real deal. I had a 30-minute slot. What I learned in those few hours with Dustin was more valuable to me than a lifetime of acting classes.

Fey says Letterman is Professor Emeritis at the Heres Some More Rope Institute, and concludes, Tonight, we declare it officially: my mom was right, David Letterman is an American treasure, like the Grand Canyon, or the Chicago skyline, or the top two Kardashians.</p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify; text-justify: inter-ideograph; text-indent: .5in;"><o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify; text-justify: inter-ideograph; text-indent: .5in;">Alec Baldwin, a frequent guest on the Late Show, explores the idea of cooking something up that would get him out of his comfort zone . . .so tonight were giving him the Kennedy Center Award. Jimmy Kimmel and Ray Romano joined the tribute. Kimmel spoke of Letterman as one of his idols. When I turned 16, I blew out the candles on a Late Night with David Letterman cake; my first car had a L8NITE vanity plate; I drew pictures of Dave on the cover of all of my textbooks; to me, it wasnt just a TV show. It was the reason I would fail to make love to a live woman for many many years to come. He concluded, You are my hero and you are a hero to most everyone in this room with the possible exception of the people who came to see the ballerina.<s><span style="color: red;"><o:p></o:p></span></s></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify; text-justify: inter-ideograph; text-indent: .5in;"><o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify; text-justify: inter-ideograph; text-indent: .5in;">Romano, who got his start as a comedian and actor through the help of David Letterman, said, I dont want to get schmaltzy.

I know youre only 65, you look good, the hearts working, but I aint taking any chances. . . I love you Dave Letterman!

Better than the Beatles. Better than the Stones even better than Tenacious D. If you dont agree with me, its because you never did the Zeppelin marathon. Black continued, They say that Led Zeppelin sold their souls to Satan come on guys, you know you did. There is no other way to explain your ungodly talent. I just want to say thank you because while you suffer in the burning pit of Hell, the human race will cherish your heavenly jams till the end of time. A small price to pay.

She was wearing Toms casual slip-ons all the time. She also explained the brands larger mission of donating a pair of shoes to someone in need for every pair sold.</p> <p>Once they met about two years ago, Kravitz says, he and Mycoskie hit it off. Theyd like to do together one of the Toms "shoe drops," possibly in Brazil or the Bahamas this summer, squeezing it in between the second leg of Kravitzs world tour that will take him through Europe and Africa. He also has two movie projects going, including the second installment of "The Hunger Games."</p> <p>"The thing a lot of people dont know about Lenny isnt just his amazing personal taste in fashion and style, but he also designs wallpaper and furniture, and he sees a bigger picture," Mycoskie says.</p> <p>His greatest contribution to the collection is adding prints, Mycoskie says, including one decorated "Let Love Rule," from his song.</p> <p>Kravitz says the basic Toms look fabric shoes that arent frilly or overly structured fits his wardrobe, even if "they remind me a little of the shoes my mom would wear in the `70s."</p> <p>He stocks pairs for guests to wear in his homes, where he has a "no street shoe" rule. "No shoes in my house," he explains. "I like to lay around the floors, and I have nice floor coverings and shags and sheepskins, and I dont like bringing in things from the outside."</p> <p>Kravitz says he aims to create a general vibe, through his clothes, decorating and broader lifestyle choices, to be comfortable, creative, engaging and inviting. And he has no problem looking for the same from passers-by.</p> <p>"I love people watching. I love observing what people do and how they express themselves," he says. "Its inspiring to see what people do and how they twist things to make themselves unique, even if its something you would never do."</p> <p>But life is full of surprises. He never expected, for instance, to be part of the tween-teen phenomenon "The Hunger Games," taking on the stylist role of Cinna, who helps Jennifer Lawrences character cultivate an image through her clothes.</p> <p>"I had no idea `The Hunger Games was so big, I didnt even know the book. I had been living under my own rock," he says. "But then I read it, loved it. ... Its interesting to walk down the street and hear girls saying, `Oh, thats Cinna, and they have no idea about the music."</p> <p>Please visit <a href="http://www.toms.com">http://www.toms.com</a> to see the entire collection.</p> <p>From <a href="http://lennykravitz.com/">lennykravitz.com</a></p>Fri, 18 May 2012 13:11:00 -0700http://lennykravitz.com/news/93801'Mama Said' Deluxe Edition To Be Released June 5<p>Lenny Kravitzs 1991 album, Mama Said, has been digitally remastered and expanded for a special Deluxe Edition to bereleased on June 5th (June 4th outside of North America) by Virgin/EMI.
