Filling Pieces proudly presents its Autumn/Winter 2021 collection named Garden of Eden

Fashion Presented in a lookbook shot by Paris-based photographer Francois Quillacq, Garden of Eden is inspired by the natural elements of life, with muted colours and soft fabrics that bring together the opposites of fantasy and nature. The collection reintroduces classics such as varsity jackets and wool overcoats, while also introducing items featuring a new FP monogram, premium knitwear, and new leather accessories.     Designed to bring us back in unity with our own nature, the Garden of Eden represents harmony within ourselves. Reduced to the essence, with an appreciation for everyday rituals and the simple nature of our being, this collection shows that in these trying times, being grounded is the best way to move forward. This philosophy is reflected in the soft organic materials, nature-inspired graphics and dark earthy tones that come back throughout the collection.     Creative Director Guillaume Philibert calls it Filling Pieces’ best collection to-date:    ‘Garden of Eden’ for me as the creative director has a special meaning, where the premise is this imaginary romantic place that we all desire during these times.  The color scheme, silhouettes and graphics/hardware was all curated to amplify this urge for this romantic place. Its been a great collaboration between the team and creative collaborators such as Francois Quillacq and Sandra Pechenard'      The Garden of Eden lookbook will be presented in full on Fillingpieces.com     The collection will be shared on the 12th of February but it's definitely available to share immediately.      CREDITS: Photography:    François Quillacq (@Francoisquillacq) Set Design: Sandra Pechenard   Models: Bilal (@Jhuoza) Palmyre (@palmyretrm) Presented in a lookbook shot by Paris-based photographer Francois Quillacq, Garden of Eden is inspired by the natural elements of life, with muted colours and soft fabrics that bring together the opposites of fantasy and nature.

LOUIS VUITTON PRESENTS ACCESSORIES FOR SPRING & SUMMER 2021

Accessories New territories are explored as Louis Vuitton embraces ever more fluid and shifting identities. Old codes and icons are reinvented. Following on the heels of the Spring-Summer 2021 fashion show, the Louis Vuitton accessories collection introduces bold and versatile new signatures that bring together the House’s various crafts in a harmonious blend.     With an up-to-the-minute chunky square or cat-eye shape, three new pairs of sunglasses offer this season’s take on the constantly shape-shifting Louis Vuitton design codes. The temples on the cat-eye model are formed from chain links inspired by leathercraft. The other two pairs toy with variations of the LV signature to make a feisty statement, either through Monogram acetate frames or with metallic hinges showcasing the LV Circle.     A strong presence in the Spring-Summer 2021 fashion show, the chain made of large links engraved with the Monogram flower now makes its way onto fashion jewellery. Worn as a bracelet, necklace or earrings, it comes in gilt, silvered, or diamanté-set brass.     The collection also plays with zips, here brought into motion through necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. For effortless chic it can be paired with the Monogram leather cuff, complete with 80s subculture influences, or even with silk.     There are a variety of ways to accessorise Louis Vuitton’s silk squares.  Loosely tied around the neck, cinched around the waist as a belt, or bandana-style, silk squares as well as the new LV ENVY scarf offer a versatile look.   New territories are explored as Louis Vuitton embraces ever more fluid and shifting identities.

 Scotch & Soda presents the Summer collection

Scotch & Soda presents the Summer collection

Fashion   A free-spirited mood defines the Scotch & Soda Summer 2021 collection, inspired by Simone Melchior, the 1950s sea explorer who challenged expectations of her gender and time to become the world’s first female scuba diver and a pioneer of marine conservation.     Drawing on her colourful life, the collection heroes an individual and personal approach to dressing built on an eclectic blend of colours, prints and classics.     Statement marine prints that celebrate Melchior’s love for the oceans and sea life abound. Starfish patterns glow in neon shades; graphic anemones pop in bright pinks and greens; metallic tiger shells playfully skew animal prints; while a rustic hand-sketched scene of farmhouses and florals nods to Melchior’s South of France upbringing.     A play on volume is explored in a multiplicity of silhouettes. Sometimes, it’s structured, like the puffed sleeves of a maxi dress; or loose and fluid in the wide leg of cargo trousers. Other times, it’s an unexpected mix of both, such as the fit-and-flow pleated skirt. Cropped shapes, high waists and full A-lines further experiment with proportions in designs that convey a sense of freedom.     An individual and personal approach to dressing playfully subverts the traditional codes of menswear. Summer tailoring is recast in pastels mirroring the colours of the sea with unexpected strength and softness. Highlights for men include a single-breasted blazer and trousers in foam green, and a shorts suit in bright wave blue. Pastels are also contrasted against clean essentials like a pink polo top in textured organic cotton towelling, a vivid dip-dyed ribbed knit, and Bermuda shorts in both surfer and tailored cuts.     The idea of seasonless dressing is key, anchored in modern classics influenced by the utilitarian practicality of marinière uniforms. Trench coats come oversized for layering in spring and ease in summer; likewise, the blazers in longer lengths. Knitted organic cotton- blend vests can be worn over dresses or as standalones, and easy pleated trousers, any time. They’re delivered in a joyful palette which takes on the hues of the Provençal countryside and sea: muted tones of sienna, sand, ecru and French blue, with bursts of orchid pink, marigold, salmon and foam green. Enriched with irreverent details, these epitomise the reinterpreted essentials that form the heart of every Scotch&Soda collection.   A free-spirited mood defines the Scotch & Soda Summer 2021 collection, inspired by Simone Melchior, the 1950s sea explorer who challenged expectations of her gender and time to become the world’s first female scuba diver and a pioneer of marine conservation.     Drawing on her colourful life, the collection heroes an individual and personal approach to dressing built on an eclectic blend of colours, prints and classics.     Statement marine prints that celebrate Melchior’s love for the oceans and sea life abound.

ETRO UNVEILS THE NEW SPRING SUMMER 2021 ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN

Fashion Joy is an immediate, sudden feeling. It draws a smile on the face; it brings a light to the eyes, and energizes the body. It oozes energy, momentum, and owns distinctive gestures. It knows no time and no place. Models Anna Ewers, Parker Van Noord, Alessio Pozzi and Grace Musase are portrayed by David Sims in the dazzling non-place of a white background in the new ETRO campaign. These are immediate and vitaminic images, which depict a study in the making of joy and vitality: a spark in the eye, the whiteness of teeth or the wind in the hair are enough to convey the message, getting straight to the point. It is the same joy that runs through the collection, a further exploration of ETRO's family lexicon. The pictures intentionally wink at the way we were to define the way we are. If the prints, but also the accessories, are an archive anthology, with imaginative names such as Bandiere da Parata, I fiori del Cielo or L’Albero delle Meraviglie, the images are an obvious homage to a perhaps more carefree decade. Not for ETRO. What remains, in order to evolve, is in fact the joyous urge to mix signs and meanings, the vital freedom in merging worlds, the immediacy of fashion as a pure expression of joy.

Samsøe Samsøe for Fall & Winter 2021

Fashion Week ’Stillness’ is the name of Samsøe Samsøe’s AW21 collection. It’s about aspects of being grounded, seeking stillness in a world where it might be hard tond the calm places that make us into who we are. It is also a re ection of the inspiration trip that thebrand’s design team took this year.     ”This time around, the design team and I took an inspiration trip within the Danish borders, and we ended up in a summer house, spending some time together - growing stronger bonds - and building the collection around the concept of ‘Stillness’. The serene moments of ‘just... being’ is a huge part of this collection”, says Gitte Wetter, Head of Design.     In the Womenswear collection, there is a certain nod towards the Victorian era, with heavy lace dresses in soft, romantic shapes, contrasting with suede and leather, giving the collection a more masculine expression. Other shapes draw inspiration from the late 70’s, mixed with today’s more clean silhouettes.There is a playo between formal and informal, givinga perfect balance of the modern woman’s look and feel.     This season, Menswear references the 70’s with slightly more exaggerated collars, but also the 90’s through oversized, checked shirts - now reworked in more contemporary qualities - which add an extra layer to the always tactile collection. Another strong focus is the relaxed shapes as if playing dress up at home. Soft fabrics, and loosely constructed blazers and jackets give a more laid back feeling this season with wider shapes in both pants and shirts adding to the luxurious and warm feeling.     Hues of sunny yellow, dry orange, brick red, washedout brown and hints of green re ect the draw ofnature and the elements that might be around us. An overall expression that uses long lasting qualities and shapes ensures a cohesive approach for both the Men’s and Women’s collections, as sustainability is always in focus. The result is that the AW21 collection is 75,5% more sustainable, than previous collections. A part of the brands initiative is to be 100% more sustainable by year 2024.     Whether or not it is has a mental or global aspect, the collection is about the state of ’Stillness’. The times we are facing in the world we live in are highlightedand showcased in this collection. Di erent minds, di erent thoughts, di erent possibilities all make us do things di erently and the result is a totally personalinterpretation of what it is, to explore stillness. ’Stillness’ is the name of Samsøe Samsøe’s AW21 collection.

Rains presents digital runway show ANTICIPATE

Fashion Week The ANTICIPATE collection offers a conversation around the expectancy of the next, creating a collection rooted in a prowess for the unkown.     Form and function equalize into a presentation of modern utility, one that need not make unnecessary compromises. Utilitarian tailoring built from heavy PU-coated twill is contrasted to crisp fabrics in parachute-like silhouettes. Voluminous puffer ensembles create security shells, encompassing the wearers like an armor to outside elements. Together, the themes offer a sense of hope in comradery, and a collective fight for the future.        "This season, it was inevitable to take in current world affairs and build a collection that offers a confident contribution to the dialogue. We wanted to build pieces that made people feel strong, collaborative and present. It was through bold silhouettes in a uniform color palette that achieved a sense of certainty in comradery," says Tanne Winter        Shades of a grey armada are presented as a central color palette, only to be interrupted by holographic showpieces and an icy blue for a glimmer of light amongst the collection.     For AW21, Rains references sci-fi storylines, offering a cinematic introduction to the latest runway collection offered up by the outdoor lifestyle brand.     Exploring the act of expectancy-the visceral response to before and after - 30 looks marched their way to the top of the precarious platform, to be met by a water orb hovering in the cradle of open air. Juxtaposed light and dark envelop the collection, offering a mysterious setting to the otherworldly encounter.   The ANTICIPATE collection offers a conversation around the expectancy of the next, creating a collection rooted in a prowess for the unkown.     Form and function equalize into a presentation of modern utility, one that need not make unnecessary compromises.

Vans and Opening Ceremony Launch First Global Footwear, Apparel and Accessories Collection

Accessories Since 2014, Vans and Opening Ceremony have forged a partnership rooted in celebrating creative expression and collaboration. This February, Vans and Opening Ceremony reunite to debut the first global collection of footwear, apparel and accessories released by the two iconic brands. Launching on February 19, the extensive collection will be made available on Vans.eu, Vans retail locations and at select wholesale partners worldwide.      Established in 2002, Opening Ceremony emerged as a creative, multi-brand retailer motivated by principles of exploration and friendship, and has since celebrated many unique and diverse perspectives of people and countries around the world. Opening Ceremony founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, both of whom are renowned designers in their own right, have amplified voices and pushed boundaries that often reach far beyond the fashion world. At the forefront of fashion for decades, Carol and Humberto continue to celebrate their longstanding partnership with Vans, this time on a global scale.     "Vans has been a long-time creative partner of ours, and we're so excited to collaborate on their iconic print this season,” says Opening Ceremony Creative Director Humberto Leon. “For this new capsule collection, Carol and I are inspired to reinvent the checkerboard, taking a new graphic approach to Vans' classic pattern."     Inspired by Vans’ iconic checkerboard print, Opening Ceremony founders reinvent the pattern with abstract snake and leopard patterns across apparel and footwear. Using Vans’ original deck shoe, the Authentic as their canvas, Opening Ceremony have created an all-over repeat pattern that highlights the positive and negative space – finding harmony between the motifs of the snake and leopard across the uppers and sole of each shoe.       The repeat leopard pattern is featured on an assortment of apparel, including a track suit-inspired jacket that includes a front zipper closure, toggle fasteners and a hidden hood. The Vans x OC leopard pant boasts a relaxed fit with welt pockets and a zipper flap. The leopard assortment is complemented by a leopard printed tote that is filled with soft padding, emblazoned with a novelty rubber Vans x OC patch.      A second delivery of footwear takes an elevated approach using monochromatic uppers in orchid and baja blue. The Authentic QLT brings two of-the-moment colorways to Vans’ maiden silhouette, with an all-over color, quilted vamp and lateral stitching. Each shoe is finished with an Opening Ceremony woven patch on the heel.      The Vans x Opening Ceremony collection will be available worldwide at Vans.com, Vans retail locations and at select wholesale partners on February 19.
