BOSS revealed their new Spring 2021 collection

Fashion Week BOSS revealed an uplifting, colorful and relaxed Spring 21 collection with an outdoor show at the Palazzo del Senato in Milan. Staged before a limited number of guests, the runway show was augmented by a multi-platform global livestream, and a simultaneous live event in China.   The Palazzo del Senato holds particular significance for the brand, as the first-ever BOSS Womenswear show was held here exactly 20 years ago. This return, two decades on, was an opportunity to celebrate the enduring confidence, elegance, and strength of the BOSS woman, as she moves together with the BOSS man into a whole new era.   The tree-lined Spring 21 runway, set amid the columns of the open-air courtyard, brought architecture and nature into perfect alignment. Every tree from the show space will now be donated to the city of Milan, and cared for by BOSS for two years.   Guests including Suki Waterhouse, Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl, Maria Pedraza (Élite), Caro Daur and Louis Hofmann (Dark)attended the show in person, while TikTok stars Bryanboy and Nic Kaufmann created content to support the TikTok livestream – a first for a German fashion brand. Walking the runway this season, models included Irina Shayk, Adut Akech, Felice Norordhoff, Mica Arganaraz, Nico Potur, Alpha Dia, Leon Dame and Jonas Gloer.

PRADA SPRING/SUMMER 2021 WOMENSWEAR SHOW DIALOGUES

PRADA SPRING/SUMMER 2021 WOMENSWEAR SHOW DIALOGUES

Fashion Week The Spring/Summer 2021 Prada womenswear show is, by its nature, a dialogue - the debut collection by co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons, a creative conversation in progress. An initial proposal, the first example of myriad possibilities, it propounds Prada as part of a dialogue between the different viewpoints of two collaborators. A definition, and then a redefinition, of values and ideology, a fundamental examination of the meaning of Prada.   This season, in a period where the mediation between technology and humanity has become vital - bringing us together, even as we are apart - inspiration is drawn from this inherently contemporary and inevitable fusion. The process behind the collection was, inevitably, shaped by these necessary restrictions: fashion as both reflection of and reaction to the time in which it is invented. On a deeper level, technology’s indispensablepresence within not only life but daily action has led to a different dialogue between ourselves and information: today, technology is a part of humanity itself. The collection explores the notion of uniform, touching on multiple different interpretations of that concept - a uniform of Prada, of a community, a visual representation of identity, of shared and embraced values, a way of thinking. Clothes are pared-back, refined, focussed, without superfluous decoration: shell tops, straight pants, overcoats in industrial re-nylon, constructed using couture techniques, suits executed in fleece.   Garments are drawn around the body, held by the hand. It is an innately human gesture that can be transformative, translated into the architecture of pieces, to cut and form language. Artworks created by Peter de Potter, a long-term collaborator of Raf Simons, explore ideas of thought and process - returning, again, to the relationship between information, technology and humankind, but also, wider, of thought itself as first an inner monologue, then an outer dialogue, another exchange of ideas. They are used to interrupt and disrupt the uniform surfaces of clothes - as graphic tools of contrast, sometimes laid over archival Prada print, emblematic of a meeting of worlds and aesthetic discourses.   A requisite component of uniform is simplicity: recognition, reducing clothing to an essence, to the essential. The wrap, a precise rectangle of fabric, is a logical outcome of thismode of exploration of reduction, a symbol representative of the collection’s overallconsiderations. Proposed in the different fabrications that comprise the collection - t-shirt jersey, fleece, re-nylon, embroidered duchesse satin, chiné taffeta - its intention can transform, speaking of protection or decoration, utility or adornment. Simple acts have deeper meaning: the translation of garments into different materials change our reading, transforming the pragmatic to the sophisticated, and vice-versa. The addition of pockets to pieces is a practical act - but in that practicality, it speaks of living and life, of the usefulness of clothes in a dialogue with the human body.   Duality and plurality has always been inherent in the language of Prada: juxtaposing different elements, approaches and disciplines to find a paradoxical harmony in dichotomy. The physical environment of this virtual fashion show – conceived by OMA/AMO - is a personal, intimate space, tactile. Technology appears as chandeliers of monitors and cameras - decoration and use combined - animated in a dynamic ballet with figures that pass through. The soundtrack, composed for the show by Plastikman, British-Canadian electronic musician Richie Hawtin, includes the names of every woman modelling in the show: an entirely new cast who have never walked a runway show previously. For all of them, this marks a debut.   Examining a dialogue between mankind and machine, the notion of instinct and logic emerges: diametric opposites, the two nevertheless form a foundational dialogue to creativity. Both are quintessentially Prada - a consideration of the world, and a natural reaction to that stimulus. Another paradoxical dialogue, reflecting reality.   Discover more on: prada.com The Spring/Summer 2021 Prada womenswear show is, by its nature, a dialogue - the debut collection by co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons, a creative conversation in progress.

FENDI presents their incredible Women’s and Men’s Spring Summer 2021 Collections

Fashion Week Seen through the looking glass, the FENDI Women’s and Men’s Spring Summer 2021 Collections are a patchwork of memories designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi. Time spent with family – generations reunited at home in Rome – is a catalyst for quiet introspection: at the window or in the garden, watching the world go by.     From the inside looking out, and the outside looking in, shadows and reflections are cast across the collections. Intimacy is abstracted through signposts of domestic life – a trousseau of stories unpacked and unfolded in a weaving together of the precious and the plain. The purity of linen is vital: romanced with cotton, feathers, fur and eiderdown quilting, it conjures images of embroidered bedding and tableware – maternal souvenirs passed down from mother to child. A flaxen palette breathes in natural shades of wheat, milk and honey amidst reflections of sky blue and cardinal red, as cinematic black and white shine like spotlights cast on cloth. Windows – metaphorical and physical – are a leitmotif impressed upon garments in a game of transparency and texture throughout.   In tandem, the Women’s and Men’s Collections explore FENDI traditions stripped bare – from boutis satin quilting to the linear encrustations of jour d’echelle ladder-work and flourishes of ajouré flowers that expose skin to create layers of light and shade. Formal structures are softened – coat backs and shirt sleeves unbutton, tailored details are ‘debossed’ in trompe l’oeil knitwear, and embroidered house coats and flared tunics elevate the comforts of home. Lightness and depth intermingle in faded flora print linens and latticework furs, or the intricate workmanship of apron dresses in silk duchesse, embroidered tulle and gazar. Acknowledging the gravity of a moment, clothes tell stories of the rigour of Italian craft and the emotion of our universal experience – FENDI workmanship applied under surreal circumstances.   The FENDI Women’s and Men’s Spring Summer 2021 Accessories collections play with construction and embellishment to conceal and reveal. In movement, embroidered silk veils float over Baguette and Peekaboo bags in floral fur and cotton ajouré or quilted FF logo leather. Woven textures abound: market baskets in recycled PVC, stretchlattice frame totes, picnic baskets and canvas luggage are pragmatic and light-hearted solutions for daily life.   The ‘hand in hand’ Baguette project celebrates a unique collaboration with local artisans across Italy, including the Abruzzo and Marche regions shown on the runway. Handcrafted in Abruzzo, a sheer Baguette is constructed in tombolo aquilano sugar-coated lace, a technique refined by Benedictine nuns since the 15th century. From Marche, a structuredBaguette woven in strands of natural willow is inspired by the baskets of local fishermen.   Laser-cut and ajouré apron belts hold the second iteration of the FENDI X CHAOS ‘tech jewellery’ capsule collection dipped in pastel colours, and chain drop earrings feature pearls and pairs of cheeky FENDI dice.  On foot for Women – woven boots, elastic pumps, and rattan pool slides evoke a tonal spring elegance. For Men – sling-back boat shoes and T-bar plimsolls are new twisted classics.     THE SHOW SETTING:   At the FENDI show space in Milan, the Women’s and Men’s Spring Summer 2021 Collections designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi are unveiled together in an intimate fashion show setting evoking the traditional and domestic inspirations of the collections. An airy scenography composed of fresh white curtains floats in the breeze – complemented by the undulating sofas that return from the Fall Winter 2020-21 Women’s show set, now covered in white cotton.   A series of luminous vignettes punctuates the space – digital ‘windows’ projected across walls and floors revealing glimpses of the outside world, from garden flora to passing birds and the day’s cycle of the setting sun. As models walk through the show set, each window projects a unique story across their looks, creating fleeting moments of shadow and light that accentuate the workmanship of each garment.   Continuing the personal narrative of the Fendi Family, the show casting includes a selection of related models: mothers, fathers, sisters and sons include Edie and Olympia Campbell, Cecilia and Lucas Chancellor, and Philippe and Dries Haseldonckx.   For guests watching at home, a dual digital format splices together live footage of the fashion show with pre-recorded clips by the German director Norbert Schoerner.     THE MUSIC:   Mixed live by the Italian musician Lorenzo Senni with a live string quartet, the FENDI Spring Summer 2021 Fashion Show soundtrack is an original synthesizer composition featuring an extract from the film The Challenge composed by Senni and tracks from his album Scacco Matto (2020). Known for the invention of ‘pointillist trance’ music, Senni follows in a line of new wave Italian electronic musicians to collaborate with the house of FENDI, with previous artists including Caterina Barbieri, Ninos du Brasil, Donato Dozzy and Alessandro Cortini.

#BORNINITALY: IDENTITY AND STORY IN THE NEW FW20 CAMPAIGN BY LIU JO

#BORNINITALY: IDENTITY AND STORY IN THE NEW FW20 CAMPAIGN BY LIU JO

Fashion Five women interpret the beauty and uniqueness of being Italian, in the new concept that celebrates the roots of the brand's DNA with authenticity.    An affirmation of pride that passes through the multi-faceted faces of five Italian women with an authentic and kaleidoscopic personality: Giulia Maenza, Aurora Talarico, Hoda El Hadef, Greta Ferroand Nabou Thiamare the protagonists of #BornInItaly, the new Fall/Winter 20 campaign by Liu Jo that dedicates next season to Italy, the origin and guardian of the brand's most authentic DNA. The concept thus continues the brand story started for the brand's 25th anniversary with the chapter #BornIn1995, metaphorically broadening its objective to include an original and personal celebration of its roots.    #BornInItaly is for Liu Jo a story that symbolically unites all women to a typically Italian vision of multifaceted and multi-shaped femininity, and that manifests itself perfectly thanks to the glamorous and fresh codes of the campaign; a completely digital exercise, born to be enjoyed in a dynamic and immediate way also and especially online. It focuses on the exaltation of a light and positive "Italian way", far from clichés but naturally nonchalant and self-confident for anyone who wears it.   The shots of the campaign then appear as a sort of joyful hymn dedicated to Italy and above all as a dedication that Liu Jo addresses to Italian women and their personalities, telling the charm and enchantment of a country that has never stopped dreaming. Today more than ever.   The images, made in a studio by Giampaolo Sgura, exalt the young women - models and actresses with a strong personality, interpreters of different and magnetic beauties - and the Liu Jo outfits for next season, leaving important space to the world of denim, accessories and footwear. There is also a series of engaging video contents, played on the characteristics of individual women and on a personal and fascinating interpretation of the Italian spirit. An unexpected approach, which - focusing on essential treatments and neutral backgrounds - enhances the iconic and convincing attitude of the protagonists, also associated with their place of birth. A sort of signaturethat pays homage to the origins and roots of each one: a precious memory that tells the pride of being #BornInItaly.   Five women interpret the beauty and uniqueness of being Italian, in the new concept that celebrates the roots of the brand's DNA with authenticity.    An affirmation of pride that passes through the multi-faceted faces of five Italian women with an authentic and kaleidoscopic personality: Giulia Maenza, Aurora Talarico, Hoda El Hadef, Greta Ferroand Nabou Thiamare the protagonists of #BornInItaly, the new Fall/Winter 20 campaign by Liu Jo that dedicates next season to Italy, the origin and guardian of the brand's most authentic DNA.

Colmar presents its collaboration with Vision of Super

Fashion Colmar presents its collaboration with Vision of Super: a collection that will conquer the underground soul of consumers attentive to trap, rap, street and contemporary culture.   The new young capsule collection reveals the iconic Colmar jackets enhanced by the graphics that have made the success of the brand created in 2018 from an idea of Dario Pozzi.It is a total look collection, with six jackets (three with a slimmer fit for men and three puffier unisex ones) and a choice of sweatshirts (with and without a hood), t-shirts, trousers, caps and a backpack.

Accessories For Fall-Winter 2020/2021, Givenchy unveils seasonal colors and treatments for the Antigona Soft, the latest addition to the iconic Antigona family of handbags.   Named for the mythical Greek heroine, the Antigona Soft captures the Fall-Winter 2020 mood of discreet nonchalance. Crafted in supple calfskin with both classic and seasonal finishes and treatments, it reprises the original Antigona’s signature geometry, bold zips and pentagonal patch, now updated with a more informal, slouchy shape.   Rooted in the Givenchy couture heritage of elegant ease and masculine/feminine duality, the Antigona Soft is defined by generous proportions and a shape that lets it move from day to weekend with all the effortless versatility of a favorite leather jacket. On the runway, it was shown wrapped in large, contrasting silk scarves twisted and knotted around the handles, a visually impactful yet casual-looking way of accentuating individuality and graphic appeal.   Though relaxed in spirit, the Antigona Soft is perfectly on-point in terms of style and practicality. Its sleek calfskin body features an ample central compartment with dual zip closures on medium and large styles, with an inner card pocket, vertical side straps with turn-lock fastenings, twin top handles and a removeable shoulder strap for two modes of wear (hand-held or over-the-shoulder). A small version likewise accommodates all the essentials, with a zipped compartment, a card pocket and an adjustable, removable strap for cross-body wear.   Timeless finishes for the Antigona Soft include classic black and pearl gray. Seasonal statements feature a graphic houndstooth version that echoes ready-to-wear looks, and a version in extra supple calf leather embossed with a crocodile finish. An elevated version in two-tone, hand-pleated leather offers a dressier option.   This new variations will debut in Givenchy boutiques worldwide on September 18th, 2020.

Crafted in supple calfskin with both classic and seasonal finishes and treatments, it reprises the original Antigona’s signature geometry, bold zips and pentagonal patch, now updated with a more informal, slouchy shape.   Rooted in the Givenchy couture heritage of elegant ease and masculine/feminine duality, the Antigona Soft is defined by generous proportions and a shape that lets it move from day to weekend with all the effortless versatility of a favorite leather jacket. On the runway, it was shown wrapped in large, contrasting silk scarves twisted and knotted around the handles, a visually impactful yet casual-looking way of accentuating individuality and graphic appeal.   Though relaxed in spirit, the Antigona Soft is perfectly on-point in terms of style and practicality. Its sleek calfskin body features an ample central compartment with dual zip closures on medium and large styles, with an inner card pocket, vertical side straps with turn-lock fastenings, twin top handles and a removeable shoulder strap for two modes of wear (hand-held or over-the-shoulder). A small version likewise accommodates all the essentials, with a zipped compartment, a card pocket and an adjustable, removable strap for cross-body wear.   Timeless finishes for the Antigona Soft include classic black and pearl gray. Seasonal statements feature a graphic houndstooth version that echoes ready-to-wear looks, and a version in extra supple calf leather embossed with a crocodile finish. An elevated version in two-tone, hand-pleated leather offers a dressier option.   This new variations will debut in Givenchy boutiques worldwide on September 18th, 2020. Retail prices: from 1,450 euros.

GUCCI releases the new Jackie 1961

Accessories The Gucci Autumn Winter 2020 women’s and men’s fashion shows saw the reintroduction of one of the House’s most famous styles — the Jackie Bag — imbued with new relevance.      First created in 1961, the hobo bag, with its elegant curved shape and distinctive gold hardware closure, became emblematic of the ‘60s and ‘70s jetsetter lifestyle for which the House was known. Most notably, Jackie Kennedy was photographed with the bag so frequently it became known simply as “The Jackie.”   A key member of the Gucci bag family for many decades, the Jackie has been redesigned several times over the years. Its newest incarnation, designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, is the Jackie 1961. A fusion of his fascination with archival codes and contemporary vision, the bag re-emerges to transcend traditional accessories classifications with its non-binary attitude. In fact, Alessandro Michele debuted the Jackie 1961 at HIS men’s Fall Winter 2020 fashion show. Reduced in size and worn by both men and women in diverse looks — tailoring, grunge and clothes with shrunken proportions — the House’s recognizable bag assumed an entirely new character.   Sourcing a vintage Jackie bag from his personal archive, Alessandro Michele proposes three different sizes — medium, small and mini — rendered in a new pared down silhouette. Clean lines bring the focus to the unique piston closure and the rich leather itself. All styles of the Jackie 1961 are available in black and red leather as well as GG Supreme canvas with Web stripe. The small and mini versions feature an extended palette that includes neutral-colored python as well as candy pastel hues of lilac, butter, light blue and soft pink. A longer, removable shoulder strap enhances the new Jackie’s flexible personality and versatile practicality.     The Jackie 1961 joins the Dionysus, the Marmont and the Horsebit 1955 as a Beloved Line of the House.  The Gucci Autumn Winter 2020 women’s and men’s fashion shows saw the reintroduction of one of the House’s most famous styles — the Jackie Bag — imbued with new relevance.      First created in 1961, the hobo bag, with its elegant curved shape and distinctive gold hardware closure, became emblematic of the ‘60s and ‘70s jetsetter lifestyle for which the House was known. Most notably, Jackie Kennedy was photographed with the bag so frequently it became known simply as “The Jackie.”   A key member of the Gucci bag family for many decades, the Jackie has been redesigned several times over the years.

Zalando celebrates its 10th anniversary in the Netherlands in collaboration with Ronald van der Kemp

Fashion Zalando celebrates its tenth anniversary in the Netherlands with a campaign in which Ronald van der Kemp has upcycled ten items from ten Dutch brands to ten 'couture looks'.      Zalando Netherlands is celebrating its 10th anniversary in style and is launching a new campaign in collaboration with ten Dutch brands, including Scotch & Soda, G-Star, WE Fashion and MUD Jeans. Of these ten brands, the ten most iconic items of the past decade were upcycled by the world's first sustainable couture fashion house, RVDK Ronald van der Kemp. The campaign "Story of a Decade" takes a look at fashion from the past, today and the future through ten upcycled couture looks.   Ten years ago, zalando.nl went live, two years after the founding of Zalando in Berlin. What started as a start-up selling shoes online has grown into Europe's largest online fashion and lifestyle platform in just ten years. Today Zalando attracts more than 34 million customers in 17 countries. Ten years ago, the first Dutch brands immediately joined Zalando, including G-Star and Scotch & Soda. Today they are also part of the anniversary campaign "Story of a Decade".   "With this campaign we want to put our partnership with local Dutch brands in the spotlight. After all, we can only achieve our ambition to become the starting point for fashion in Europe in collaboration with our brand and retail partners. With the upcycled looks, we not only want to celebrate the achievements of the past ten years, but also take a look at the future of fashion, of which sustainability is an important part,"said Jacintha De Graaf, Head of Zalando Benelux.   Starting today, Zalando will be putting local Dutch brands in the spotlight for ten days. The following ten Dutch brands are participating: Scotch & Soda, WE Fashion, G-Star, Mud Jeans, Fabienne Chapot, Stieglitz, Kings of Indigo, Goosecraft, ETQ, Denham. For each of these brands, Ronald van der Kemp created 10 couture looks with leftovers from his own previous collections, tailored to ten special Dutch talents. This collaboration resulted in daring and surprising looks with a high couture content.   Ronald van der Kemp, designer: "Zalando is taking important steps in these times of change in which sustainability and diversity are central. We think it is great to be able to contribute to this. For this anniversary, Zalando asked us to create a celebration of personality, diversity, creativity and sustainability. With these looks we try to enlarge the personalities of the influencers and give the clothes a look that suits our times."   Ten local talents wear the couture looks for this campaign and embody a personal vision of fashion in the future. From talented make-up artist Celine Bernaerts, to international model Nella Roz, ballet dancer Christian Yav, ex-top model Linda Spierings, artist and actress Zoe Love Smith and non-binary actor Thorn Vineyard.     We had a great chat with Ronald about the collaboration.   How did the collaboration with Zalando and you start?   Since starting with my label one of our main things was sustainability and diversity in fashion, and now that’s a hot topic. We share these values, thus Zalando approached us to work on this project. And I love the idea of working with existing materials and to make it into something unexpected or new. To make it look different, or give it new content. That’s also why we worked with many different influencers on this project, to inspire people to be proud of who they are and to express themselves.     Where was fashion for you 10 years ago and where do you see it 10 years from now?   I think my biggest thing is that people should be more individual, discovering who they are. I think 10 years ago people were  following someone that might not even be real (think filters etc.), wiping away their own personality in that sense, I hope that now and I think that people are waking up and should not try to hide, come out and embrace it. I think that is what's needed now and people are exploring that more than ever before. Also now you can reach so many people internationally with social media channels, in a way that can be both good and bad, but when people become more individual, that makes the world more exciting, especially in fashion.  I think in fashion we should produce way less and be very creative, we should also find ways to sell fashion and not neccesarily product. You can also sell a dream or an experience, think of perfumes for example. Selling a dream is definitely something bigger than just a product.     See more about the campaign: https://www.zalando.nl/zms/10jaarzalando/   #Zalando10Jaar   Zalando celebrates its tenth anniversary in the Netherlands with a campaign in which Ronald van der Kemp has upcycled ten items from ten Dutch brands to ten 'couture looks'.      Zalando Netherlands is celebrating its 10th anniversary in style and is launching a new campaign in collaboration with ten Dutch brands, including Scotch & Soda, G-Star, WE Fashion and MUD Jeans.
