  • Youthful dressing and streetwear were in focus on the third day of Milan Fashion Week previews of (mostly) menswear for next spring and summer. It's a game of sophisticated materials and edgy styling, of pushing boundaries and reaching for that increasingly significant, but typically not economically independent young customer. Highlights on Sunday included Palm Angels, DSquared, Sunnei, John Richmond and Missoni. _____ SUNNEI ZEN Sunnei took a leap in sophistication with its co-ed collection featuring highly researched materials and calm, Zen-like styling. For the unveiling, founders Loris Messina and Simone Rizzo brought the fashion crowd to the white-washed concrete of a future public art space beneath a disused overpass in Milan. Providing a snapshot of the 4-year-old brand's technical sophistication, the looks included textured yet translucent knitwear, which from the front row looked soft as a sponge. On closer inspection, the outside of the designs felt resistant and a little bit scratchy. The super-light knitwear lent itself to layering - over knit pants for men and a long knit dress or skirt for women. There were matching knitwear duffels, and maxi bags took on the micro-bag trend shown on other runways. While cargo pants come in for some disparagement, the designers embraced their utility without worrying that stuffed compartments would ruin the line. In fact, the male silhouette was boxy, with oversized shirts over wide fitting shorts. Short denim jumpsuits were wide enough to suggest a dress and ensure comfort, while a lemon yellow belted jacket created a male peplum over a matching cargo trouser. Tie-back caps finished the looks. For women, there were super wide elephant pants that could be worn with ruched bandeau tops, perhaps layered with a sheer tunic. Satiny skirt outfits came cinched with scrunchy belts that gave a springy feel. Models wore platform sandals that added as much as 5 inches (12 centimeters) in height. The collection featured colors of soothing white, mix-and-match green tones, sky blue and denim along with neutrals black and brown. Rizzo and Messina declared wryly on one pullover vest, 'I HATE 'FASHION.'' The phrase clearly meant someone who tries too hard. The pair achieved the ultimate ease in Milan. _____ JOHN RICHMOND TAPS 1980S DNA He's a biker or a punker, unafraid to wear a 1980s skirt or to layer trousers or shorts with fishnets. John Richmond says the young man of today is ready for anything. And for Spring/Summer 2020, Richmond dipped back into his archive to bring back the punk skirt that graced the 1984 cover of Britain's The Face magazine, earning him a place in fashion history. The updated cotton version comes in straightforward gray and khaki, worn with showy coordinated bombers with panels of snakeskin print or metallic detailing. 'Kids nowadays wear anything. You know they've broken all the rules. So you get guys wearing jeans which are hardly there. It's all changed,' Richmond said. Snakes and snakeskin prints were the chief motifs of the co-ed collection - but no snakeskin itself. The collection featured architectural shoulders for her, accented by a cinched waist and flowing, pleated trousers for undulating movement. She might add a skin-fitting tattoo top that Richmond said was 'a montage of iconography, with rings and Bowie and all kinds of things.' There were slinkier looks for evening, including a sequined snake slithering suggestively over the shoulder. Richmond has an eye on sustainability in his broader collection, and says it is easier to find eco-polyester. The looks in stores - not on the runway - will include reused vintage. Part of the philosophy includes using footwear that is on the market. Here, Richmond collaborated with Converse for men's high-tops finished in sequins and studs with snakes or JR insignia. Richmond has been relaunching his historic brand after losing control in a business dispute for two seasons. He says it is now growing each season and as part of his latest chapter, he plans to open stores in Milan and Dubai this year and Malaysia next year. ____ MARCELO BURLON GIVES AN EASY RIDE Argentine designer Marcelo Burlon's County of Milan collection brought together extremes of technical active wear and tailored suits. The looks included Lycra running tops worn with a chino and topped with a bucket hat as easily as with runner's leggings and a flat runner's pack or with a notched suit jacket and matching trousers. A graphic top and trousers touted 1969 motorcycle road trip film 'Easy Rider' in movie poster style. The spray painting effect on sneakers and jeans gave the impression the garments had been tagged by a street artist. For more sophisticated looks, there were polo shirts down up in fading-in-and-out color gradients of black to yellow. For women, there was a long, high-slit tank dress with the same effect. A blazer gave a tailored finish to a zip-up athletic top and bike shorts. Women's jeans were worn looser and wider than the men's. Burlon also showed off his children's line with a mini-model dressed in a two-button royal blue suit. There was a double-breasted version for adults.
  • Brand familiarity isn't everything when it comes to attracting audiences to the multiplex, and Hollywood is learning that lesson the hard way this summer with a slew of underperforming sequels and reboots. That so-called franchise fatigue came to a head this weekend with the releases of 'Men in Black: International' and 'Shaft.' The writing may have been on the wall after neither an X-Men movie ('Dark Phoenix') nor a Godzilla movie ('Godzilla: King of the Monsters') could get moviegoers enthusiastic enough to turn out. But this weekend, down over 50% from last year, is the worst yet. 'This was a rough weekend,' said Comscore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. 'We've had some big franchises that are not resonating with audiences or critics.' And there's a common denominator between all the recent disappointments: Poor reviews. All four have been certified 'rotten' on Rotten Tomatoes. 'Men in Black: International' took the No. 1 spot in North America, but it's a dubious distinction for the Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth-led reboot which isn't exactly the franchise-revitalizer it hoped to be. Sony Pictures on Sunday estimates the F. Gary Gray-directed film earned only $28.5 million over the weekend against a reported $110 million production budget. The three previous 'Men in Black' films all opened to over $50 million not accounting for inflation. However, international audiences are helping the bottom line with the film earning $73.7 million from 36 markets, bringing its global total to $102.2 million. The weekend's other big new release, 'Shaft,' which introduces another generation to the franchise, couldn't even manage to carve out a place in the top five, which instead was populated mostly by holdovers. 'The Secret Life of Pets 2' got the No. 2 spot in its second weekend with $23.8 million. Disney's 'Aladdin,' now in weekend four, took third with $16.7 million. 'Dark Phoenix' placed fourth with $9 million and 'Rocketman' coasted to fifth with $8.8 million. 'Shaft,' a Warner Bros. release, placed sixth on the charts, with a disappointing $8.3 million. Directed by Tim Story, 'Shaft' features Samuel L. Jackson reprising his role from almost 20 years ago and Jessie T. Usher as his son. It was made for around $30 million. Although critics did not praise the film, audiences who turned out (54% of whom were women) were more enthusiastic, giving the film an A CinemaScore. Even some originals had a tough time this weekend. Amazon Studios expanded its Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson comedy 'Late Night,' which it acquired the North American rights to for a Sundance record of $13 million , to 2,220 theaters where it earned $5.1 million. 'The real bright spots have been the smaller indies,' Dergarabedian said. 'We think of summer as blockbuster season, but it's turned into indie film season.' Jim Jarmusch's star-studded zombie comedy 'The Dead Don't Die' mostly survived its mixed reviews and opened to $2.35 million from 613 locations. Documentaries like 'Echo in the Canyon' and 'Pavarotti' have been making a modest mark in limited release, and the acclaimed drama 'The Last Black Man in San Francisco' expanded to 36 locations and earned $361,120. It expands further next weekend. But the marketplace is hurting and it's not a problem with the weekend, which last year saw 'Incredibles 2' open to over $182 million, but with the major movies themselves. The disappointments have come, mostly, from 'movies that just don't deliver,' according to Dergarabedian. But it's too simplistic to fault all franchises and next weekend the marketplace will be singing a different tune when 'Toy Story 4' opens. ''Toy Story 4' is going to erase the memory of this very tough weekend,' Dergarabedian said. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Comscore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. 1. 'Men in Black: International,' $28.5 million ($73.7 million international). 2. 'The Secret Life of Pets 2,' $23.8 million ($8.5 million international). 3.

  • O.J. Simpson has reportedly joined Twitter, and he claims to have opinions on “just about everything.” >> Read more trending news  Right around midnight Friday, Simpson announced via a video on the Twitter account @TherealOJ32 that he would soon share tweets and perspectives from the account. The page in just about 12 hours snagged nearly 150,000 followers. “It should be a lot of fun,” Simpson, 71, said in the video. “I’ve got a little getting even to do, so God bless. Take care.” Simpson said the account was the only “official” account, since there had been other impostor accounts circulating. Shortly after the video posted, it appeared that a duplicate account was created that shared several derogatory tweets, including one that simply read, “I killed her.” That account had about 12,000 followers as of Saturday afternoon. The football legend has become more known for his alleged ties to his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson’s death than his remarkable college and NFL career. On Oct. 3, 1995, he was infamously acquitted of the killings of Brown Simpson and her companion Ron Goldman.  In 2008, Simpson,was convicted of armed robbery and served nine years in a Nevada prison. He was released on parole in October 2017. In the hours since his Twitter account debuted, many have posted jokes and memes about Simpson, especially his comments about getting even. Many commented that his arrival to Twitter was particularly strange, since it falls just a few days after the anniversary of the murders of Brown Simpson and Goldman. (Their bodies were found on June 13, 1994.)
  • Actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish has canceled her upcoming Atlanta performance because of Georgia's new restrictive abortion law. News outlets report that the 'Girls Trip' star sent a statement to ticketholders Saturday, saying she cannot 'in good faith' perform in Georgia unless it withdraws the so-called heartbeat bill. Haddish had been scheduled to perform June 22 at the Fox Theatre. The new law would ban abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks, before many women know they are pregnant. Unless it's blocked in court, it's set to go into effect in 2020. The ACLU has already said the group will mount a legal challenge. Major Hollywood studios have said they may reevaluate filming in Georgia if the law goes into effect.
  • New Mexico's film industry appears to be on the brink of a boom thanks to abortion law controversies in other states and expanded incentives. A recent spike in film production in the state comes as Hollywood targets both Georgia and Louisiana over recently passed restrictive abortion laws, the Albuquerque Journal reports. The political developments are being watched closely in New Mexico, which is poised to benefit even though state officials have said there's no organized campaign to lure film productions from those states. 'I don't know that we are necessarily using that as a drawing card, because we are a drawing card,' New Mexico Film Office Director Todd Christensen said. The jump also comes as New Mexico is set to more than double its annual state spending cap on film incentives. In addition, NBCUniversal announced Friday it will build a television and film studio in a warehouse district just north of downtown Albuquerque as it seeks to expand its footprint in one of the fastest-growing film production hubs in the country. The company said it entered a 10-year venture with a developer to reshape an empty warehouse into a studio with two sound stages and offices. The studio will be used to produce shows for broadcast and cable channels. The New Mexico Film Office said the coming Amazon TV series production 'The Power' reached out to New Mexico because of Georgia's political climate. 'The Power' will be a 10-part series based on Naomi Alderman's 2016 novel in which women around the world suddenly gain the ability to electrocute people. New Mexico has on its books a 1969 state law that banned abortion in most cases. But the law became unenforceable after it was superseded by the landmark Roe vs. Wade ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court. An attempt to scrap the 1969 law failed during the last state legislative session in the Democratic-controlled Senate. Democrats have downplayed the vote and have vowed to try again in the near future. New Mexico was one of the first states to launch a film incentive program in 2003 and upped the ante with a new package of film and TV incentives passed by lawmakers during this year's 60-day legislative session and signed into law by Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham in March. The package raises a 2011 cap on what the state can pay out to film and TV productions from $50 million to $110 million per year, while also authorizing the spending of up to $225 million to pay down an accumulated backlog in film incentives. Film companies receive 25 percent rebates on qualifying expenditures on goods and services in New Mexico. There is a 30 percent rebate for some TV shows. In recent months, the New Mexico Film Office has received about two calls a day from production companies asking about the new incentives and possible locations in the state. 'We're getting calls,' Christensen said. 'If the script fits, they'll come here. In some cases, they can change the scripts to fit New Mexico.' Not all legislators are thrilled with the expansion of the state's film incentive program. State Sen. Mark Moores, a Republican who voted against this year's bill, said he would be uneasy about using the abortion laws in Georgia and Louisiana as leverage, adding that he has a problem with 'out-of-state corporate extortion' on what he described as a social issue. 'If we as a state make a political decision for New Mexico that they don't like in the future, will they extort us like they're trying to do to Georgia?' Moores asked. ___ Information from: Albuquerque Journal, http://www.abqjournal.com
  • O.J. Simpson launched a Twitter account with a video post in which the former football star said he's got a 'little gettin' even to do.' Simpson confirmed the new account to The Associated Press on Saturday, saying in a phone interview while on a Las Vegas golf course that it 'will be a lot of fun.' 'I've got some things to straighten out,' he said. He did not elaborate before he said he had to go and ended the call. Simpson has generally kept a low profile since his release from prison in October 2017 for robbery and kidnapping over an attempt to steal back some of his sports memorabilia from a Las Vegas hotel room. In the Twitter video, Simpson said his followers would get to read all his thoughts and opinions on 'just about everything.' 'Now, there's a lot of fake O.J. accounts out there,' he said, adding that this one would be official. He appeared to record the message himself and ended it with a grin. The 71-year-old recently told the AP he was happy and healthy living in Las Vegas 25 years after the killings of his ex-wife and her friend. Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were stabbed to death on the night of June 12, 1994. Simpson was ultimately acquitted of the crime after a televised trial that riveted the nation and raised thorny issues of racism, police misconduct, celebrity and domestic violence. Relatives of the two victims have expressed disgust that Simpson is able to live the way he does. Simpson was ordered to pay $33.5 million for the wrongful deaths of the two victims, but most of the judgment has not been paid. Simpson has continued to declare his innocence in the two slayings. The murder case is officially listed as unsolved. In his recent interview , Simpson told the AP that neither he nor his children want to talk about the killings ever again. 'My family and I have moved on to what we call the 'no negative zone.' We focus on the positives,' he said. ___ Linda Deutsch is a retired special correspondent for The Associated Press. She covered all of Simpson's legal cases during her 48-year career as a Los Angeles-based trial reporter.

  • A two month, multi-agency investigation has ended with the arrests of two suspects involved in a Romanian skimming ring that affected nearly 400 residents across Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia.   Specifically, more than 80 Putnam County residents were affected with more than 300 others in areas like Jacksonville, Keystone Heights, Newberry, and into Southeast Georgia.
