MUGLER Fall & Winter 2021

MUGLER Fall & Winter 2021

Fashion With immediacy and speed, Casey Cadwallader continues to explore the nuances of the Mugler lexicon through the evocative medium of fashion film. In a cinematic satire directed by Torso Solutions, the Fall Winter 2021-22 collection is revealed in a series of sleek vignettes that examine the tropes of the back lot, studio photography and the runway show by breaking the 4th wall and harnessing the power of the gaze. Catapulting backwards and forwards, swivelling and zooming in a constant game of inertia and perspective, adventurous camera work accompanies a vampish cast of Mugler characters spanning the ultra-famous to the entirely anonymous, from canonical supermodels to fitting models and new faces. Emphasizing the art of the pose, the reveal and conceal of flesh affirms Mugler’s no-holds-barred celebration of the feminine form in all its glory.   Demonstrating the prowess of the Mugler atelier, second skin garments expand upon obsessive construction and material research in new sculpted forms infused with colour and shine. Ultrasonic boned corsets and highwaisted zip leggings set on illusion tulle are spliced with panels of bonded recycled Lycra in lustrous inky black, midnight blue, flesh pink and reflective silver. Jersey camisole dresses and deconstructed rah-rah skirts shirred at the hip slice across the torso in shades of teal and neon yellow, oxblood, indigo and pumpkin, intertwining with bandage glove tops to create layered expressions of light and dark. Liquid velvet bodies in techno jersey and wavy buckled miniskirts are layered under sculptural wool tailoring, from a cut-out peak lapel blazer in cavalry twill and fitted corsetry jackets to a draped leather military trench coat. Allusions to the Mugler archive abound, from keyhole bustier details and a flocked star-patterned dress to snake chain body jewellery that traces sinuous lines across the body as it weaves in and out of flou garments and accessories. The intricate pattern work of spiral denim returns in new shades and fabrications alongside fluid tailored trousers split at the ankle – exhibiting the innate freedom of movement central to the Mugler world.With Jimmy Choo, the Mugler Fall Winter 2021-22 shoe collection takes on new dimensions, with a full range of styles in the season’s colours and materials from cut-out calf boots and pointed chain pumps to open sandals with metallic ball details.     Featuring:   Lala &ce @lalalipsbby, Sora Choi @sola5532, Bella Hadid @bellahadid, Kayako Higuchi @ka.ya.ko, Yilan Hua @yilan_hua, Dominique Jackson @dominiquet.a.r.jackson, Kai-Isaiah Jamal @kai_isaiah_jamal, Lidia Judickaite @lidia.judickaite, Cyrielle Lalande @cyriellellnd, Lola Leon @lourdesleon, Precious Kevin @preciouskevinn, Jill Kortleve @jilla.tequila, Ylang Messenguiral @ylangmess, Barbara Valente @___valente, Amber Valleta @ambervalleta, Ariish Wol @arrriish With immediacy and speed, Casey Cadwallader continues to explore the nuances of the Mugler lexicon through the evocative medium of fashion film.

In conversation with Rick van het Meer

Portrait We are delighted to share our recent interview with the incredibly talented Rick van het Meer.       I'll start with a difficult question: If you had to choose between GREEN or the salon, what would you choose and why?   I can't and won't make that choice, and as far as I'm concerned I don't have to. I've been able to make my hobby my job twice. Whether it's about hair or green.      As a hairdresser you are known not to go along with the hair trends but really looks at the individual what suits him / her. What do you pay the most attention to when making a hair plan?   It is important to find out who the person is. Costumizing a hairstyle goes beyond just cutting a haircut, what kind of work do you do, do you travel a lot, are you more alternative, creative or just conservative, it all counts in how I arrive at the right cut.      Where does the love of plants and designing gardens come from?   I've always had it. I grew up in Friesland and I can still draw any garden that meant a lot to me at the time. I can dream of the garden of my great-grandparents' farm, especially the dahlias in the fall around the vegetable garden made a big impression on me as a child.      Why did you choose to open a plant store?   I love being a shopkeeper, you are close to the consumer and therefore know very well what people are looking for and what is going on in the market. In addition, it is very good marketing-wise to show what you have to offer as a greenmaker.      Are there any plants among them that you have raised yourself?   No, unfortunately not yet. In the future I would love to grow my own plants.      Is there anything you learned at the salon that you now apply at GREEN?   Listening to your client and creating something beautiful together. It's not that different really. You listen to your client and together you create something that someone will enjoy for years. The reason I don't do flowers is that plants and gardens only become more beautiful with age. A flower is already dead the moment you sell it.     What is the goal for the next five years for GREEN?   To grow into a place where you can buy anything green, that I can do beautiful sustainable projects with my team. Making Amsterdam a little greener, I am all about achievable goals. This should be possible!     What does your dream garden look like?   The garden of Anna Wintour on Long Island, designed by Miranda Brooks is really how I think a garden should look like.  We are delighted to share our recent interview with the incredibly talented Rick van het Meer.       I'll start with a difficult question: If you had to choose between GREEN or the salon, what would you choose and why?   I can't and won't make that choice, and as far as I'm concerned I don't have to.

Why is wool the future of sustainable fashion?

Why is wool the future of sustainable fashion?

Sustainability Sustainable development in the global fashion and textile industry has been accelerated by the COVID-19 crisis. Consumers are willing to pay more for sustainable products and research by McKinsey&Co revealed “57% of shoppers agreed that they had made significant changes to their lifestyles to lessen their environmental impact”. For designers, brands and manufacturers looking for sustainable material solutions, wool is a natural, technical and circular fibre that can be easily integrated into sustainable material strategies. There are numerous pressures for the textile and fashion industry to shift to a more sustainable system. These pressures are demanding that brands and manufacturers rethink their materials strategies and choose bres that are less impactful on the environment. Australian wool is inherently circular and provides a solution for sustainable textile development.       Why is wool the future of sustainable fashion and what are some of the quality key benefits of wool for the customers?     Because wool is 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre and refers to the fibres produced by sheep. However do keep in mind that not all wool is exactly the same. There are more than 1000 different breeds of sheep all over the world which produce a variety of different types of wool. Australian Merino wool is more complex than any synthetic or natual fibres.    Wool is the future of sustainable fashion because it is 100% natural and renewable, 100% biodegradable, it is breathable and non-allergenic, it is super soft (softer and finer than human hair), wool uses 18% less energy than polyester and nearly 70% less water than other natural fibre to produce 100 sweaters, it is also the most reused and recycled fibre. While manmade fibres are petroleum based, non-biodegradable, microplastic pollutants, require more wasking, non-renewable to name some of it's key cons.     How does wool fit into a sustainable circular model?   With fibre production wool is as mentioned before renewable, in product manufacture it is slow fashion and not fast fashion, in distribution and retail it is again slow fashion, in product use phase it has a long product life and in product disposal it is biodegradable.     Wool forms a part of the natural carbon cycle. By storing the carbon from the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2), wool prevents the gas from contributing to climate change for the time the garment is in use. All this CO2 is removed from the atmosphere for the bre’s life – from when it is used by the grass during growth, to when it is converted into wool on the sheep, through the wool product’s use phase – until it is disposed of and biodegrades. For many wool garments, this period is greatly extended because wool is used or recycled in a variety of textiles.     There are a lot more opportunities with wool especially with technical deisgn, tracebility and circularity.      Which are some of the key innovations and designs with wool?     Definitely some of the key innovations in wool to empashize are: wind and water-resistant wool fabric, wool faux fur, seamless knitwear, wool velvet, digital printing, wool footwear, wool wadding to name a few of the most important ones.     One in particular that we find spectacular is wool in footwear. Advancements in knitting technology have facilitated the use of wool in footwear. Combining wool with different yarns in a shoe upper draws on wool’s natural properties to promote dryness, breathability, freshness, comfort and warmth. With fully fashioned knitwear uppers, waste is reduced by directly mounting the shaped piece onto the sole of the shoe. Filament-wrapped wool yarns add strength and resistance to abrasion, extending life wear of the shoes making it slow fashion.       Australia is the largest producer of Merino wool in the world, with a total of 68 million sheep and 60,000+ woolgrowers producing 90% of the world’s wool used for ne apparel. With a commitment to responsible practices and animal welfare, Australia is also the largest exporter of non-mulesed wool in the world. Wool makes up only 1.2% of the global apparel market by volume, but makes up 8% of its value, rea rming wool as a luxury fibre. Australian Merino wool is much more complex than any of the synthetic bres and most other natural fibres. It is this complexity that provides wool with the unique set of benefits which cannot be matched by any other fibre natural or man-made. It also has som medical benefits: super fine Merino wool has been found to be beneficial to the skin, providing a natural adjunct treatment for eczema that reduces the need for traditional medicines.           In conclusion wool is a sustainable solution, it is breathable, it is good for the skin, it is renewable and biodegradable and it is odour resistant. Wool is the future of sustainable fashion don't you agree?     The Woolmark Company is the global authority on wool. Through its extensive network of relationships spanning the international textile and fashion industries, the company highlights Australian wool’s position as the ultimate natural bre and premier ingredient in luxury products.      Learn and read more about wool here.

Watch TV like never before: Philips TV unveils two new design TVs

Design Philips TV and audio expert Bowers & Wilkins join forces once again to redefine premium TV. The TV performance bar is raised with the introduction of the new Philips OLED+986 and OLED+936 designer TVs. The latter has already been praised by EISA with the Home Theater TV 2021-2022 Award. The new design sets will be available in the Netherlands from September (OLED+936) and October (OLED+986). The new sets continue the trend of their predecessor to offer the very best in European design. Beautiful natural materials are used, such as Kvadrat cloth, glass and metal. Even the remote is luxuriously finished with durable Muirhead leather. After refining the previous models, both the OLED+986 and OLED+936 now have micro-mesh grilles on the front of the speaker cabinet with Kvadrat cloth on the top of the box for a premium look. Impeccable audiovisual experience The Philips OLED+986 and OLED+936 both feature the latest high-quality OLED displays with better sharpness, more accurate colors and skin tones, and better contrast across the board. The high-end TVs offer the best quality for razor-sharp images and constantly optimize the image based on the environment for optimal user-friendliness, both during the day and at night. In addition to a more immersive TV viewing experience, the new TVs also feature Philips TV's four-sided Ambilight system, making it seem as if the movie scenes or games are taking place in the room. Gamers will also be amazed by several features, which offer subtle yet ultra-realistic, smooth transitions from picture to picture with increased sharpness.       The OLED+936 and OLED+986 provide premium sound through the optimized Bowers & Wilkins speakers to complete the cinematic experience. Philips OLED+986 – TV that makes a statement With the Philips OLED+986, available in 65”, you make a direct statement. The premium TV guarantees the highest possible picture quality and the most advanced sound system ever seen on a TV. Both on and off, this flagship model – with premium materials, refined details and a cinema-worthy viewing experience – is a design eye-catcher in every room. The OLED+986 is designed to provide exceptional audiophile sound quality, both when watching TV and when using the TV as a stand-alone music system. The speaker box is again located under the TV, with the small Tweeter-on-Top driver above it that brings out the smallest sound details. The speaker system has been optimized to provide an unprecedented sound experience with exceptional clarity and detail. Combined with Philips TV's four-sided Ambilight system, consumers are assured of a true cinematic experience. The Philips OLED+986 (65”) will be available from October for a suggested retail price of €4,449. Philips OLED+936 – audiovisual TV reaches new heights The OLED+936, available in 48”, 55” and 65”, also features various picture and sound upgrades that give the TV the best performance in the market. The premium design is a feast for the eyes, and has already won the Home Theater TV 2021-2022 Award from the widely respected Expert Imaging and Sound Association (EISA). The separate Bowers & Wilkins speaker controls any unwanted resonance, resulting in a particularly sparkling sound. The speaker is combined with a minimalist metal corner arm that allows it to be used as a table stand. As with the OLED+986, there is also an option to mount the TV on the wall. By turning on the movie, game or personal mode, the TV plays together with the speaker to provide an excellent immersive experience. Philips TV's four-sided Ambilight technology perfectly combines with the state-of-the-art sound performance of the OLED+936 to provide the most immersive TV viewing experience available. The Philips OLED+936 will be available from September for a suggested retail price of €1,999 (48"), €2,499 (55") and €3,499 (65").

With the launch of its long-awaited mascara, MÁDARA aims to challenge the traditional beauty advertising customs

Beauty In October 2021, the award-winning MÁDARA Organic Makeup range will be joined by the long-awaited mascara, combining reinforcing ingredients and dream performance in a clean, natural certi ed formula — true to the brand’s roots and uncompromising values.     DEEP MATTER Bold Volume Mascara     NATURAL CERTIFIED | LASTING PERFORMANCE | NO SYNTHETIC COLOURANTS CRUELTY-FREE | 100%VEGAN | EARTH-CONSCIOUS PACKAGING     The natural certified, high performance formula and sophisticated wand give way to creative freedom and invite to explore unusual techniques, creating everything from natural looks to experimental styles.   Working on Deep Matter, the MÁDARA creative team dared to embrace uncertainty and question the traditional narratives of beauty advertising, turning the process into a creative experiment itself.     “What we often see in beauty advertising, especially in the case of mascara – cliché images of an enchanting lady that is trying to seduce the viewer, and the e ort is conscious and obvious. We decided to walk a different path, looking for a deeper and more authentic way to communicate with our audience. To give in to the process, and see where it leads.   Our initial aim was to capture a direct and authentic gaze, free from cliché expression, super cial emotion and resemblance of one’s social roles – of a woman, a model, a mother, a daughter, a wife.

Molton Brown celebrates their 50th year anniversary

Beauty British fragrance house Molton Brown celebrates their 50thanniversary this year. To celebrate, the brand is going back to their roots with the relaunch of their iconic ‘Orange & Bergamot’ fragrance. The scent has been part of Molton Brown’s portfolio since it’s inception under the name ‘Orange Grove’, and stems from a time where Molton Brown was the first brand in Britain specializing in luxurious soaps. Inspired by sunny Sevilla and streets full of lush orange trees, the Neroli filled perfume has been relaunched in a limited edition bottle, decorated with silver-and-white branches, sprouting the orange citrus fruit that the perfume is so rich with.                                                                                                      This is a big year for Molton Brown. Since it´s inception in 1971, Molton Brown has always festively kicked off the holiday season. With the launch of their new limited edition collection in the brand new fragrance of ´Jubilant Pine and Patchouli´, Molton Brown honours this tradition. The new bouquet, created by master-perfumer Jacques Chabert, is inspired by the warm energy of London’s South Molton Street on Christmas Eve. Opening with classic notes of fresh pine, dried juniper berries and the herby accents of cinnamon, the fragrance’s heart is filled with sweet, red fruit, and is finally closed with top notes of fresh suede.       Finally, the British house releases their gifting collection, consisting of four festive giftboxes and one advent calender, glimmering in jewel tones of fierce emerald and gold. Standouts are the deluxe giftbox with 10 luxurious travel size bottles of Molton Brown’s most iconic Bath&Shower gels, and the desirable Advent Calendar, housing 24 miniatures of the brand’s favourite picks, one for each day until Christmas Eve.     Molton Brown’s festive season collections launch on 1 November at Skins, Babassu, de Bijenkorf, and selected stores physically and online.
