Fashion chain Bonmarché employs administrators|Business|The Guardian

The fashion chain Bonmarché has actually contacted administrators, putting almost 3,000 tasks at danger.

The Wakefield-based retailer, which offers style for ladies over 50 and has 318 shops, said it had actually entered into problems after a “sustained period of challenging trading conditions and cashflow pressure”.

Administrators stated they would continue to trade Bonmarché while evaluating options for the future for business. All stores remain open for the time being and no redundancies have actually been made.

Tony Wright, a joint administrator and partner at FRP Advisory who was appointed on Friday afternoon, stated: “Bonmarché has actually been a staple on the UK high street for almost 3 years, however the persistent difficulties facing retail have actually taken their toll and caused the administration.” He stated he intended to find a buyer for business.

Helen Connolly, the primary executive of Bonmarché, said: “The high street is going through a duration of historic difficulty and we have been not able to weather the economic headwinds affecting the entire of the retail sector.”

Bonmarché, established in 1982, is the most current in a string of high street chains to enter into problems as buyers control spending amidst economic uncertainty while personnel expenses and business rates have actually increased. Profits have actually likewise come under pressure as the value of the pound has actually fallen versus the dollar, increasing the cost of purchasing goods overseas.

Karen Millen, Coast, House of Fraser and Debenhams have all fallen under administration in the past 18 months while New Look and Marks & & Spencer have actually been closing shops.

Bonmarché, which previously entered into administration with sibling chain Peacocks in 2012, provided a string of profits cautions in the past year, stating it expected to make a loss of as much as ₤ 6m this year.

The collapse follows Bonmarché was taken private by the Edinburgh Woollen Mill owner Philip Day’s Dubai-based acquisition car Spectre in August.

The worth of Day’s ₤ 5m-plus financial investment in Bonmarché will be eliminated in the administration and it is unclear if Day, who likewise owns Jaeger, Austin Reed and Peacocks, will try and preserve control of the company.

Bonmarché’s problems emerged on the exact same day that Watt Brothers, the Scottish department shop chain, also called in administrators with 220 instant redundancies and almost 90 further tasks on the line.

Louis Vuitton x Donald Trump: the huge style collab nobody asked for|Style|The Guardian

Louis Vuitton, the most valuable high-end brand in the world and reward pony of luxury corporation LVHM’s stables, has opened a Texas factory, AKA the Louis Vuitton Rochambeau Ranch. Vuitton assured the venture will provide 1,000 American tasks over the next 5 years.

At a time where brand names are feeling the pressure to be more political and woke than ever, is it not an enormous synthetic pas to discount rate politics on Vuitton’s part?

The response is … possibly? Off, it’s significant to note that this is not the first Vuitton factory in the States. No, the business has been producing its items in California for 3 years (ah, rarified European high-end!). It is, however, the very first factory opening to need LVMH’s president, Bernard “The Wolf in a Cashmere Coat” Arnault, to painfully equivocate about his important invitee, Donald Trump, who together with child Ivanka signed up with Arnault and LVMH’s leading brass for the grand opening.

“I am not here to evaluate his types of policies. I have no political role. I am a business individual,” Arnault stated of Trump at the ribbon-cutting ceremony, as reported by the New York Times. How hassle-free, considered that while the event was unfolding, United States forces were withdrawing from northern Syria, the impeachment treatment has been magnifying, and his 1,000 th day in office had actually just passed with a growing number of individuals being worried by his mental stability.

One truth universally acknowledged by marketers of our age is more youthful demographics care, more or less, about business duty. A main boycott– #grabyourwallet– of brand names economically related to the Trump campaign has actually affected the appeal of business prior to. Keep in mind the current thing with SoulCycle and Equinox?

Do the individuals who purchase Louis Vuitton care that their bag was brought to them by two males who both just recently openly chastised teenager climate activist Greta Thunberg on different events? Is Louis Vuitton not fretted about the reputational hazard of aligning their plastic-y, tan conceals with the plastic-y tan hide in chief?

Perhaps not in Texas where, after all, 77.5% of Johnson county, where the factory is situated, voted for Trump in 2016. However according to the Hollywood Reporter, stylists who manage the closets of the likes of Justin Beiber, Katy Perry and Julia Roberts have already required to Twitter to cry, basically, “Huge mistake”. Yuge!

Renaissancecore: why everybody is dressing like Anne Boleyn|Fashion|The Guardian

Fashion’s muse for celebration season 2019 looks coolly from an oil painting in the National Portrait Gallery in London. Her velvety black gown and lavish headdress are studded with pearls. At her throat is an extraordinarily Carrie Bradshaw-esque device: a gold-and-pearl initial-B pendant.

This is Anne Boleyn, or rather the concept of her as produced posthumously in the late 16th century. Her appearance is likewise really now– think square necklines, OTT sleeves and embellished headgear. It is all part of a larger trend described as “Renaissancecore” by the design blog site Manrepeller.



Facebook Twitter Pinterest The renaissance of the Renaissance is popping up far and wide. On the Strictly Come Dancing results reveal a fortnight earlier, Tess Daly used a black velour dress with an extremely Boleyn-ish square neckline and leg-o’-mutton sleeves. The same week, the Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie used a” Renaissance-inspired “dress on the red carpet. The square necklines are also extremely Ganni spring/summer 2020. Decorated headbands are quick becoming central to the visual of 2019. The Duchess of Cambridge is so connected to hers that British Style was moved to run a piece on her life in headbands. The headband’s status as the go-to accessory for ladies in the public eye was verified by its look on Carrie Symonds’head during the Queen’s speech on Monday. On the other hand, amongst the extremely young and hip, they have actually ended up being winter’s response to the flower crown, ever larger and more over the top.
Facebook Twitter
Pinterest Tudor kings were the design icons of their day, Henry VIII’s Wags in particular. Having formerly lived in France, Boleyn was a standout fashion leader, credited with popularising Gallic designs such as the “french hood”– referred to as a decorated “half moon– or crescent– design band or brim sloping far from the face”.

Anne of Cleves was no style slouch either, with some stating she popularised the leg-o’-mutton sleeve. Incidentally– whether ballooning or curtained– elegant sleeves are really Renaissance, and extremely Roksanda Ilinčić and JW Anderson. Then and now, huge sleeves are a way of using up space with clothing, a power move that resounds through the ages.

What should we make from the return of a look in which opulent fashion was used as a defence– albeit one that so frequently showed futile in the face of the (literally) cut-throat facility? Possibly absolutely nothing too encouraging. The truth that the English Renaissance has actually been explained as “the peacock age” by some historians describes its appeal for Christmas-party season in the attention economy.

Milano, 20enne “violentata fuori dall’ Old Style” – Corriere.it

La serata di venerdì è iniziata presto, con la cena “Red carpet dinner”, e poi i ragazzi hanno continuato ad arrivare per la nottata: tra loro, nella folla che all’inizio di ogni fine settimana entra all'”Old Fashion”, per uno degli appuntamenti di maggior richiamo nella scena milanese, c’period anche quella giovane donna d’origine sudamericana arrivata in città soltanto da qualche settimana; ha raccontato che per qualche ora s’è divertita, ha bevuto qualcosa, ha ballato e parlato con qualche amica e un paio di persone incontrate là in discoteca, occasioni normali per una ragazza di vent’anni, a cui può capitare anche di uscire con un uomo conosciuto durante la serata. Poi, a notte fonda, erano ormai le quattro, la scena è cambiata: perché quell’uomo le ha chiesto di uscire e lei l’ha seguito, non conosceva la zona e s’è ritrovata con lui fuori dalla discoteca di viale Alemagna, tra strade e vialetti, aiuole e macchine parcheggiate sul fianco del parco Sempione, dove a stop’ora si incrocia il passaggio di chi esce dai locali, ma si trovano anche zone appartate, poco light up. È in una zona del genere che ha detto di essere stata violentata.

L’inchiesta

Lo ha raccontato qualche ora dopo, quando è riuscita a riprendersi, dopo essere andata a casa di un’amica. È rimasta lì fino al mattino. A quel punto è uscita e poco dopo è entrata negli uffici della polizia ferroviaria della stazione “Garibaldi”, probabilmente il primo posto delle forze dell’ordine che ha incrociato. La denuncia l’ha firmata lì. La ragazza è stata accompagnata al centro per il “soccorso violenza sessuale” della clinica “Mangiagalli”, per le treatment mediche e per l’assistenza psicologica. Polizia e vertici dell’ospedale hanno trasmesso l’incartamento con i primi accertamenti medici e giudiziari in Procura e il magistrato ha affidato l’inchiesta alla quarta sezione della Squadra mobile, specializzata nei reati sessuali. Da qualche giorno i poliziotti stanno verificando nei particolari il racconto della ragazza, che è riuscita a fornire soltanto elementi piuttosto sommari sul suo aggressore, che ha conosciuto soltanto quella sera e che non aveva mai visto prima. Ripercorrere il suo racconto, come sempre accade in indagini del genere, sarà fondamentale per avere un quadro più definito dell’intera vicenda. Dal primo ingresso in discoteca, alle testimonianze degli amici, alle conoscenze occasionali avvenute all’interno del locale, al momento cruciale dell’uscita, nel cuore della notte e nelle ore succeeding, fino al momento della denuncia.

Il racconto

La scansione dei tempi potrà essere decisiva per l’analisi dei filmati delle telecamere di sicurezza, sia di quelle del place, sia di quelle pubbliche e private che si trovano nei dintorni. È in quelle immagini che potrebbe essere rintracciata la sagoma dell’aggressore. In quel caso, se si trovasse un fotogramma, sarebbe possibile incrociare le caratteristiche dell’uomo con la descrizione che la vittima ha inserito nella denuncia. La ragazza è una giovane sudamerica che si è trasferita a Milano soltanto di recente, e che quindi non ha grandi contatti in città se non quelli nel mondo della moda e delle scuole per intraprendere la carriera nel “style”. Proviene da una famiglia piuttosto facoltosa ed è sempre stata abituata a viaggiare e frequentare un ambiente internazionale.
Sembra che venerdì fosse la prima volta che andava l'”Old Fashion”.

Looks modernos e fashion para mulheres maduras

Looks modernos e style para mulheres maduras.

Inspire-se com as dicas e ideias de looks para se vestir bem e se sentir bonita em qualquer idade.

Estar em uma idade mais avançada não deve ser empecilho para gostar de moda e saber se vestir bem.

E idade nenhuma é motivo para se esconder atrás de roupas largas que escondem sua silhueta e te deixam sem forma.

A consultora de moda e estilo Fernanda Maranho aponta que um erro muito comum que as senhoras cometem é que muitas, por estarem um pouco acima do peso, costumam usar roupas largas e sem shape (corte/ formato), e então acabaram parecendo ter uma silhueta maior do que são na realidade.

“Idade não é desculpa para não ter estilo” afirma a consultora.

Mas infelizmente o mundo da moda às vezes acaba esquecendo das mulheres mais maduras e criando mais modelos de roupas para as mais jovens, o que pode acabar dificultando a valorização da moda pelas senhoras.

Felizmente, com algumas dicas e inspirações de appearance, é possível que mesmo num mundo em que a moda tem o foco nos jovens, a mulher madura também possa criar visuais cheios de estilo e que valorizem sua idade, personalidade e silhueta.

Como criar looks formais bonitos

Para você se inspirar a criar looks formais elegantes, confira as combinações sugeridas a seguir e também as dicas da consultora sobre cada visual.

Vale lembrar que você pode adaptar os looks com outras cores e estilos que mais combinam contigo.

Vestido reto ou estruturado

“Este modelo de vestido é ótimo pois é clássico e atemporal.

Além do mais tem esse recorte sob os seios que modela o corpo e deixa a silhueta elegante” diz a consultora.

“Outro ponto positivo deste vestido é que ele é very versátil.

Trocando os acessórios ele pode ser usado tanto em eventos mais casuais quanto mais formais.

E também transita bem entre o verão (se usado com sapato aberto) e inverno (combinado com meia-calça, bota e casaco)” sugere.

Para os pés, a consultora recomenda sapatos de salto médio e grosso; “são sempre mais confortáveis, mas ainda assim elegantes” diz.

Camisa + bermuda alfaiataria

“Bermuda de alfaiataria é sempre um ótimo recurso para continuar elegante mesmo no verão.

Para deixar o appearance mais atualizado, dobre as mangas da camisa (esse é um ótimo truque para diminuir o volume da parte exceptional do corpo) e prenda a parte da frente da camisa no cós da bermuda” sugere Fernanda.

Regata de seda + calça alfaiataria + sports jacket

Para eventos que exigem certa formalidade e elegância, o combination calça de alfaiataria reta + sports jacket é uma aposta certa, afirma a consultora de moda e estilo.

“Ouse na cor da blusa usada por baixo do blazer, isso vai iluminar seu rosto e trazer um elemento de moda ao look.

Sapatos bi colores e um colar complementam o visual” complementa.

Vestido longo tipo regata decote canoa

A consultora de moda afirma que um ótimo recurso para quem quer disfarçar os pneuzinhos é investir em vestidos com esse drapeado na diagonal.

“Além de camuflar a região, ele também acintura e modela o corpo” diz.

Quanto aos acessórios, ela sugere: um belo colar dourado chama atenção para o rosto e o ilumina e a clutch de pérola é elegante e atemporal.

Ideias de looks despojados para senhoras

Para criar visuais bacanas e confortáveis para o dia a dia, aposte em peças chave que você gosta e varie os looks mudando outros itens da composição, como acessórios e o calçado.

Veja a seguir ideias bacanas que você pode adaptar e mais dicas da consultora Fernanda Maranho.

Vestido de malha cache-coeur

Fernanda destaca que investir em vestidos é uma maneira prática (por ser uma única peça) e elegante de se vestir.

“Para escolher o melhor modelo que valorize seu corpo, tenha em mente quais são seus atributos.

Tem pouco peito e braços definidos?

Um modelo sem manga e gola canoa cai como uma luva.

Tem bastante seio, um pouquinho de barriga e muitas curvas?

Opte por um que tenha decote V, cintura império e saia reta ou evasé.

Prefere um modelo que veste bem todos os biotipos?

O famoso vestido envelope é democrático e atemporal.”

Bata ou túnica + jeans bootcut

Segundo a consultora de estilo, para o dia-a-dia, nada mais prático que calça denims.

Um modelo ótimo e que veste bem todos os tipos físicos é a calça flare.

Essa modelagem tem cós médio (cerca de dois dedos abaixo do umbigo), é mais justo nas coxas e abre um pouco a partir dos joelhos.

“Por ser uma peça neutra, ela pode ser combinada com batas mais largas (só tome cuidado para não ser muito larga pois muito volume acaba aumentando o seu corpo visualmente), camisas, regatas de seda. com praticamente qualquer tipo de blusas e casacos” afirma a profissional.

Ela ainda adiciona que para o dia, vale combinar com sapatilhas ou sandálias baixas.

Mas dá uma advertência: quando compramos uma calça, devemos optar por usá-la ou com sapatos baixos ou sapatos de salto, e mandar fazer a barra de acordo com essa escolha.

Chemise + legging

“A gente sabe que não há nada mais confortável que calça legging, porém é necessário tomar alguns cuidados.

Por se tratar de uma calça justa, temos que ter em mente que ela contorna o nosso corpo, ou seja, não disfarça nada” orienta a consultora Fernanda Maranho.

“Se você não consegue viver sem calça legging, combine com uma blusa ou camisa mais comprida e acinture com um cinto.

E se você é baixinha, opte por usar a mesma cor de blusa e de calça ou cores próximas.

Esse truque alonga a silhueta”, sugere a profissional.

Macacão

Fernanda diz que se você acha que só porque passou dos 40 não pode usar peças que estão na moda, engano seu!

O macacão está very em alta e temos uma seleção bastante grande e democrática de modelos.

“Se você é bem magrinha e quase sem curvas, pode abusar dos modelos com as pernas mais afuniladas e pregas no cós.

Se você é mais cheia de curvas, escolha um modelo de cor mais escura, que tenha as pernas mais retas ou amplas (tipo pantalona) e com mangas” orienta.

“Sapatilhas de bico fino também ajudam a alongar a silhueta e podem ser usadas para adicionar um ponto de cor no appearance.”

Dicas de uma estilista para você se vestir e se sentir bem

FOTO: REPRODUÇÃO/ OTÍLIA REIS Otília Reis, estilista da Ores Maison, de Belo Horizonte, é a entrevistada que revela um pouco da sua visão de moda para senhoras e fala de sua experiência como mulher nessa área:

“O mundo hoje vive momentos de grandes transformações em todos os sentidos.

No caso da mulher, houve algumas mudanças radicais.

Deixamos de ser ‘bonequinhas de luxo’ e fomos enfrentar o mundo do lado de fora.

Passamos a ser profissionais e com isto termos novas atividades e uma vida social diferente, com vontades e anseios maiores, somando muitas mudanças.”

“Mas uma grande transformação que passamos é ter um ciclo de vida maior.

Hoje uma mulher de 50, 60 anos ou mais, ainda está jovem, bonita e muitas vezes com um corpo invejável!

Ao contrário de anos atrás que nos consideravam ‘velhas’.”

“Tiro como exemplo a mim mesmo que com 57 anos sou estilista, tenho varias atividades sociais e profissionais e muitos anseios e agora vou fazer pós-graduação em Moda.

Embora formada em economia, quero me especializar ainda mais para que no futuro possa lecionar e transmitir minha experiência de mais de 30 anos trabalhando neste setor.”

“Uma grande pergunta que sempre me fazem: “como se deve vestir esta mulher ‘madura’?

Se, ainda, somos jovens de corpo e mente não existe mudança no vestuário!

Apenas pequenas adequações.

A moda se tornou muito democrática, tudo é permitido desde que esteja em sintonia com três itens: seu estilo de vida, seu tipo físico e sua personalidade.”

Estilo de vida:

“Sua vida social, lugares que frequenta (formais, informais ou esportivos) e o trabalho que exerce. O tipo de vida que você leva vai influenciar seu guarda roupa.

Se você for uma advogada, por exemplo, se vestirá diferente de uma professora ou uma médica” orienta a estilista.

Mas é válido lembrar que você pode mesclar estilos e que você pode se vestir de forma diferente na vida pessoal e na profissional.

Tipo físico:

“Como eu disse, tudo é permitido se adequando ao seu tipo físico” sugere Otília.

Por isso, é importante conhecer seu corpo, descobrir qual é a sua silhueta e valorizar seus pontos strengths.

Personalidade:

“Para cada uma há também uma maneira de se vestir” diz a estilista.

Uma mulher de personalidade forte pode preferir se aventurar com looks mais masculinos e strengths, enquanto uma mulher de personalidade mais doce pode optar por looks que transpareçam essa delicadeza.

E o melhor de tudo: se você quiser, pode misturar vários estilos, desde que se sinta bem e feliz.

Sendo assim, não se deixe levar pela ideia de que você está “velha demais” para algo.

Nunca é tarde para ser feliz e investir em looks bonitos que te façam se sentir elegante em qualquer idade.

Não tenha medo de gostar de moda e se preocupar com seu visual.

Não existe idade certa para se cuidar e se amar.

Looks modernos e fashion para mulheres maduras. Inspire-se

O mundo da moda tem ganhado cada vez mais adeptas entre as mulheres mais maduras e com isso o surgimento de blogs de moda voltados à esse público também tem aumentado.

É válido lembrar também que muitas mulheres estão adotando o cabelo grisalho ou totalmente branco e se livrando da necessidade de viver pintando os fios, curtindo um visual diferente e que combina com a idade.

Essa é só mais uma das muitas “tendências” que estão surgindo a partir do desejo feminino de serem mais livres e naturais, amando-se em qualquer idade e forma.

Fashion Designer Briana Danyele Uses Her Platform to Talk About Organized Racism|Teen Vogue

Whereas some designers discover and fall in love with fashion, 23-year-old designer Briana Danyele says that for her it wasn’t actually an option. “It was simply going to be something that I belonged of due to the fact that it belonged of me,” the recent Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) graduate informs me over the phone. Danyele not only understood at an early age that she wanted to be a designer, but she also desired to make clothing that made people feel something beyond the tangible, whether that’s confidence or the need to take action.With her most

current collection, “The Illusion of Development,” that feeling is action, or rather a take a look at what can occur as a result of inactiveness. The 18-piece collection, which she displayed in May as apart of SCAD’s spring style graduate program, highlights what she refers to as “the cyclical struggle we have actually produced with systemic bigotry.” “I question how far have we really advanced in the defend social justice from the 1950s to today,” Danyele informs Teen Vogue. “In my collection I take you through a plan of where we were as a country, where we are as a nation, and my wish for where we are headed.”

She does this without compromising her design prowess. There’s a heavy focus on embroidery: sleeves embossed with Maya Angelou’s words, “Still I Rise,” a set of pants that state “No Justice,” and another that includes words from the Declaration of Independence. There’s a silk-tulle dress with “I Am Human” embroidered in the center, worn on top of a customized shirtdress. Another standout appearance: a two-tone embroidered jacket with custom-printed denim trousers comprised of faces of those who have actually been lost due to racially questionable disputes, consisting of cops brutality. “I wanted to produce lovely clothing aesthetically and intelligent clothing conceptually,” Danyele says.Courtesy of SCAD She

signs up with a wave of designers

including Pyer Moss’s Kerby Jean Raymond, Prabal Gurung, Mara Hoffman, and Gypsy Sport’s Rio Uribe who have actually utilized style– whether by means of style, casting, or with public declarations– to speak up on issues including bigotry, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, body shaming, and more. Style is, after all, a type of expression, so it’s only natural to see designers using their platforms to speak out about things that are necessary to them. “The discussion that my clothes develops is my favorite feature of my collection, for sure. My work offers you the chance to speak about difficult subjects. And if you pick to do so, you are picking to help us grow,”Danyele says.This deliberate point of view on design was in Danyele from an early age. She recalls memories of trying out coral satin heels for her eight-grade dance and feeling like a superstar, strutting and twirling in the aisles at Payless.”That was when it clicked for me: I wished to offer other people the confidence that those satin heels offered me,” she says.” When people believe in themselves, they can do excellent things. And when individuals do excellent things, they can alter the world. I simply wanted to do my part.”

Your heart can only feel sorry for Kanye– his other half is too sexy, apparently|Fashion|The Guardian

If you ever desire to know what sort of a feminist somebody is, simply inquire about the Kardashians.

Some will tell you that the females of the household, who have actually made billions thanks to their sense of design, are great businesswomen who have actually recovered their bodies by monetizing them. Others will slate their feminism because it doesn’t apply to anyone who isn’t hot.

The argument is a microcosm for a larger fight about ladies’s bodies and who gets to own them. And surprisingly, Kim Kardashian West herself underlined this very concern on Sunday, during a fiery exchange with her spouse Kanye West.

On the program’s most current episode, West confessed that he believed Kardashian’s 2019 Met gala gown was “too attractive”. (The gown was famously designed to make Kardashian-West appear like she was dripping damp.) Kanye stated he had gone through a ‘”shift” given that his rap artist days, when he was obsessed with desiring his other half to look great for others. Fast forward to today, and the dress is too much for him.

Coming from a guy who invested years speaking about and benefiting from his partner’s body, you can see why a couple of eyebrows are being raised. When asked about their romance by radio host Angie Martinez in 2013, West said he fell for Kardashian West after seeing a photo of her with Paris Hilton. He bragged that she was among the most beautiful females “probably of human presence”.

So it sounded quite rich when he admitted on the program on Sunday: “I didn’t recognize that was affecting my soul and my spirit … You’re my spouse and it affects me when photos are too hot!”

Does life get any harder than this?

In reaction, Kardashian-West advised him: “You constructed me up to be this attractive individual, positive and all this things. Simply due to the fact that you’re on a journey of transformation does not mean I remain in the exact same area with you.”

Whatever you consider Kardashian-West, we should applaud her for summarizing the biggest problem with the beauty standard on women in one sentence. The very reason some people hate her– that she motivates a body perfect that requires self-torture for many individuals to achieve– is perpetuated by guys like West.

It was perpetuated when he committed a whole music video to how fantastic Kim’s shape looks on a motorcycle; and it is perpetuated when, having accomplished the body ideal, West berates her for being too attractive.

She was best to call him out for being a hypocrite. All we can do now is hope that his spirit and soul can conquer it.

Sam Darnold, Jets upset Cowboys in chaotic style

Possibly Sam Darnold is a magic wand.

The Jets got Darnold and their groove back Sunday and notched their first success of the season, a 24-22 win over the Cowboys … not that it was simple.

The Jets jumped out to an 18-point lead early and after that held on for dear life late.

The win snapped a seven-game losing streak dating to last year and got coach Adam Gase his very first success with the Jets. They are now 1-4.

Darnold threw 2 first-half goal passes and the Jets took a 21-3 lead in the second quarter. The Cowboys, who have lost three directly after opening the season with 3 straight wins, mounted a furious comeback and quarterback Dak Prescott ran for a 4-yard goal with 47 seconds remaining to cut ball game to 24-22. Dallas then failed to transform the two-point conversion when Prescott’s toss to tight end Jason Witten fell to the grass thanks to a blitzing Jamal Adams up the middle.

The defense starred on the last significant play, but Darnold stole the show in the very first half.

Darnold tossed 2 touchdown passes, consisting of a 92-yard bomb to Robby Anderson in the opening half. After missing out on 3 games while dealing with the effects of mononucleosis, Darnold showed no indications of rust and made the Jets offense look legitimate again.

Offending coordinator Dowell Loggains said today Darnold was not a “magic wand,” but he appeared like one Sunday. The presence of Darnold elevated everything about the Jets.

Suddenly, Gase appeared like a good coach once again. The offending line could operate. The receivers might capture. The beer got less expensive at MetLife Arena. … OK, possibly he didn’t fix everything.

The defense gave Darnold a big assist, keeping the Cowboys out of completion zone up until there was 6:30 staying in the 4th quarter. Dallas installed an 11-play, 84-yard drive to make Jets fans sweat. Ezekiel Elliott scored a 5-yard touchdown to cut the Jets’ cause 21-16.

The Jets addressed with a great drive of their own with Darnold linking on a 30-yard pass to Jamison Crowder and an 18-yard pass to Anderson to move them into scoring variety. The drive stalled and Sam Ficken made a 38-yard basket to make it 24-16 with 3:23 left in the game.

Dallas installed its last drive after that and was assisted by pass disturbance penalties on Darryl Roberts, Blake Cashman and Adams that got Dallas inside the 20. Prescott scored but they might not complete the comeback with the failed two-point conversion.

The Jets defense had actually played actually well against the Cowboys No. 1 ranked offense, but began to buckle in the 4th quarter.

The Jets offense that had looked dominant in the very first half sputtered in the 2nd half. Darnold threw an interception to Jourdan Lewis on third-and-5 from the Cowboys’ 11, but the Cowboys wound up missing a basket.

The Cowboys offense was missing out on starting deals with Tyron Smith and La’el Collins and broad receiver Amari Cooper left in the first quarter with a quad injury. Gregg Williams’ defense had the ability to press Prescott and contain star running back Ezekiel Elliott.

The Jets offense had actually been nonexistent the previous 2 video games with Luke Falk at quarterback, but Darnold breathed life into the system. The Jets assembled a 14-play, 83-yard drive in the very first quarter, rounded off by a 2-yard touchdown run from Le’Veon Bell. It was Bell’s second touchdown of the season and very first rushing. Ball game provided the Jets their very first lead given that the 4th quarter of the Week 1 game versus the Expenses at 7-0.

The Jets might be looking to carry on from Leonard …

Dallas cut the cause 7-3 on a Brett Maher 50-yard field objective at the start of the second quarter.

The Cowboys were threatening to score once again later in the 2nd quarter. They drove to the Jets’ 6-yard line, but then were stopped on third-and-1 and fourth-and-1 by a swarming defense. Rookie defensive lineman Quinnen Williams made the stop on fourth down, dealing with Prescott on a quarterback keeper.

On the very first play after the fourth-down stop, Gase called up a deep ball. Darnold found a streaking Anderson at midfield and Anderson was off to the races. He beat cornerback Chidobe Awuzie on the play and then caught it just behind safety Jeff Heath. The 92-yard goal provided the Jets a 14-3 lead with 34 seconds left in the half. It also was the second-longest goal in Jets history. Only a 96-yard pass from Ken O’Brien to Wesley Walker in 1985 versus the Bills was longer.

The Jets were refrained from doing, though. They got the ball back with two minutes left in the half and moved down the field quickly, the big play being a 33-yard pass from Darnold to Demaryius Thomas. Darnold gotten in touch with tight end Ryan Griffin for a 5-yard touchdown and a 21-3 lead with 27 seconds left in the half.

Maher kicked a 62-yard field objective for Dallas as time expired in the half to cut the Jets’ lead to 21-6.
