In conversation with Tiffany Hsu

Style We had a delight to speak with Tiffany about the coming Spring & Summer trends and her highlights.   What are your top 5 new trends for Spring & Summer 2020?   90´s Clean Lines: A ‘90s mood for clean, monochromatic elegance was a favourite in Milan, particularly from the likes of Jil Sander and Bottega Veneta. Minimalism and streamlined tailoring is still a mainstay trend continuing from last season— this time, in an even more pared-back way. We loved the elegant box blazers from newcomer Low Classic, as well as The Row’s impeccable construction. The simple leather accessories we saw at Loewe—modern staples with simple lines—made the biggest statement.   Neon: A rainbow of neons was seen on the runway, with over-the-top fuchsia, fluorescent orange, bright yellow and lime green making a statement within the collections. Dries Van Noten—with a surprise appearance from fashion legend Christian Lacroix —was the occasion to see a sophisticated spin on neon colours that was more inclined towards eveningwear and dresses. Standout styles for us included Valentino’s pairing of tone-on-tone bags with belts, diamonds-meet-neon jewellery from Melissa Kaye and EÉRA, and Kwaidan Editions’ highlighter-green power suit.   Jungle: Strutting down the runway in the same plunging silk-chiffon jungle dress she infamously wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000, Jennifer Lopez’s appearance at Versace was on everyone’s feeds and lips this September. The dress inspired the creation of Google Images, as well as one of the strongest prints for next season. From Fendi’s and Dolce & Gabbana’s luxuriant green leaves to Marni’s abstract blooms, tropical prints have been flowering during Spring/Summer ’20, with palm trees and vivid colors invading dresses, jackets and footwear.   Leather: Following the wave of leather-on-leather men’s tailoring, new leather looks appeared in the womenswear collections. Even if all-black leather is still a favourite, new and different shapes have emerged, such as power shoulders at Maison Margiela and elegantly oversized dresses at Givenchy. Designers also incorporated new colors, such as Gucci’s slit pencil skirt in butter yellow and Bottega Veneta’s anorak dress in tan.          Bermuda Shorts: Bermuda shorts have been introduced as the new suiting silhouette of the season, as seen from Chloé, Max Mara and Valentino. Our clients not only purchase suits as all-in-one looks, but also as separates—making this trend a key transeasonal look that offers even more options to layer and mix. Another highlight for next season is the sophisticated leather short. Exhibit A: a nappa leather, thigh-length version, brought to you by Daniel Lee’s Bottega Veneta.     How do fashion weeks in different cities and countries differentiate for you?    Generally all cities have a unique aesthetic and approach to their respectable fashion weeks. London for example is quite compact and curated – only talents that have been selected by the British Fashion Council are able to present their latest collection. Therefore you are able to see the best that the city has to offer within a short period of time. Paris on the other hand is well known for its big productions of the major fashion houses: complex backdrops and breath-taking locations are a must. For me personally Paris is always quite busy and hectic since I am not just attending shows but am also  simultaneously buying for Mytheresa. Milan, comparable to Paris, is a fashion mecca and the home of luxury heritage brands. Their creations are about incredible craftsmanship, highest qualities and tailoring. Finally New York is very laid back and the fashion crowd seems to be more experimental – something that I find inspiring.      Name some of your new fashion week highlights.   Peter Do: I am super obsessed with this up and coming US based brand. Peter’s designs are minimal and androgynous, like a 90ies revival of Helmut Lang mixed with #oldceline. What’s not to like about this super cool brand.   Low Classic: A Korean based contemporary brand which offers all the fashion staples you need in your wardrobe without burning a hole in your pocket. High waisted blazers combined with easy culottes – you name it, they have it.   Nodaleto: Julia Toledano is the “new kid on the block” in the shoe world. She offers cool chunky heels with a bit grungy touch, but not too alternative. Her styles are perfect for the fashion savvy cool girls who want something different.     What were a few of your favourite shows for SS2020?   Bottega Veneta Valentino Loewe Jacquemus Gabriela Hearst   All the amazing pieces from the looks Tiffany is wearing on the images you can now purchase at MyTheresa.com     We had a delight to speak with Tiffany about the coming Spring & Summer trends and her highlights.   What are your top 5 new trends for Spring & Summer 2020?   90´s Clean Lines: A ‘90s mood for clean, monochromatic elegance was a favourite in Milan, particularly from the likes of Jil Sander and Bottega Veneta.

SNEAKERSNSTUFF x Vault by Vans “VENICE BEACH PACK”

Fashion To celebrate the one-year anniversary of Sneakersnstuff Los Angeles in Venice Beach, we have collaborated with Vault by Vans on two Southern Californian staples, the OG Classic Slip-On LX and the OG Era LX, as an homage to Venice Beach and the culture and history that encompasses it.   This history of Venice Beach is a notorious one, a place where creatives and artists flourished in the 1960s and ’70s, immortalized in the history books of skateboarding forever throughout the ‘80s and coincided with a punk explosion that enveloped the beach and boardwalk into the ’90s. The design of the SNS x Vault by Vans “Venice Beach Pack” is a nod to that time - the late 80’s and 90’s and what skaters, surfers, and punks were wearing.   Both the OG Classic Slip-On LX and the OG Era LX feature a canvas upper with the iconic checkerboard print in bright neon colorways and unique SNSgraphics along the sidewall as Vans has done so iconically over the years. In addition to the OG Vault by Vans Off the Wall logo hit on the heel, design details revere to orginal Vans models such as a slim fitted shape utilizing the original period correct upper patterns. Further, we see the iconic outsole undercut with hand-tooled details and tightly wrapped rubberized textile foxing only seen on vintage Vans, long-lasting thick outsole, original Vans sticky rubber, and sidewall sealing wipe. The OG build is as always, original design, original quality, and crafted the original way.

The Breitling  launches Top Time Limited Edition

The Breitling launches Top Time Limited Edition

Watches When the original Breitling Top Time was launched in the 1960's, it was a watch with a clear mission. Willy Breitling announced that his brand’s new watches were “particularly suited to the needs of the young and active professionals. We are designing a superb range of ultramodern chronographs, led by a completely new model, the Top Time.” The sports watch appealed to that demographic but also attracted young women, who were drawn to its bold new lines and its undeniable elegance. And now, Breitling is reintroducing the Top Time, a collectors’ favorite with one of the most recognizable dials in all of watchmaking.   More than half a century after introducing its Top Time watch, Breitling is launching an updated and upgraded model. Like the 1960's model that inspired it, the new Breitling Top Time has an unconventional design that makes a bold style statement. A first glance at the dial, which has long been known to collectors as the Zorro dial, makes it clear that this is a watch that doesn’t take itself too seriously. But that playful face doesn’t disguise the superb chronograph performance, which is pure Breitling.   Breitling CEO Georges Kern commented: “ When it was released more than 50 years ago, it was a watch that appealed to a younger audience committed to enjoying the freedom and the spirit of the 1960's, and, amazingly, after all this time, it continues to stand out. The Top Time is an important but often overlooked part of our heritage, and we know it’s going to resonate with men and women who love this blend of history, design, and great performance.”   Inside the Top Time’s 41-millimeter stainless-steel case is a Breitling Caliber 23 chronograph movement with a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. Its accuracy is confirmed by its status as a COSC-certi ed chronometer. The red hour and minute hands as well as the dot markers for each hour are coated with Super-LumiNova, a luminescent material that ensures legibility in all lighting conditions. Along with the central hour, minute, and chronograph second hands, the dial also features a decimal scale and two subdials – a small second counter at the 9 o’clock position and a 30-minute counter with unique red accents at 3 o’clock. The new Breitling Top Time’s modern retro look is perfectly complemented by its brown nubuck leather strap. This striking watch is limited to 2000 pieces, and its caseback is engraved with “ONE OF 2000.” One of the few features this new chronograph doesn’t have is a Geiger counter, unlike the Top Time handed to James Bond by Q in 1965’s Thunderball. The world’s favorite spy used the watch to avert a nuclear catastrophe by locating stolen missiles that had been hidden underwater. With 007, of course, style is always essen- tial, and owners of the new Breitling Top Time will have it in abundance. The Breitling Top Time Limited Edition will be the brand’s first watch offered with a blockchain-based digital passport, which confirms the authenticity and ownership of the watch with a single click. Owners can access the watch’s digital passport at any time and transfer ownership – if they choose to do so with a simple blockchain transaction. Offered in cooperation with Arianee, the digital passport will also complement Breitling’s innovative digital warranty program by offering the absolute security that can only be provided by a blockchain system. This cutting-edge technology, which makes it possible for customers to engage with the brand anonymously, allows Breitling to add new online services ranging from advanced clienteling to a revolutionary care program. The Breitling Top Time is scheduled for launch on Breitling’s e-commerce channel in March 2020 and will be available upon request from the brand’s global retail network at a later date.   Adding to the excitement surrounding the release of the new Top Time, a highly regarded London based street artist is designing a mural featuring the familiar Zorro dial. It can be seen on the corner of Redchurch Street and Ebor Street in the trendy Shoreditch area of East London from March 25 until May 20, 2020. The new Breitling Top Time: it’s hard to imagine a better way to express your personal style than with a truly great chronograph that will never be confused with any other watch!

Philippe Model Paris for Spring & Summer

Philippe Model Paris for Spring & Summer

Accessories 90s aesthetics. A re-working of the atmospheres and styles of the decade that symbolised theabsolute coexistence of different, sometimes opposite trends, which represented a moment of infinitepossibilities - styles, inventions, modernity, ways of life – in fashion and beyond. From musical subcultures to aesthetic ones, the 90s mixed opulence with minimalism, grunge with gothic, clubbing with purism, making every association acceptable and legitimising the sporty model in everyday life. Philippe Model Paris embraces this quest for experimentation and freedom of expression through a collection in which materials and colours come together in unexpected combinations. The senses of touch and sight are stimulated in an almost psychedelic manner. From fluorescent varnish to soft, sophisticated leather, from nylon to metal animal print, from printedpony hair to absolute mono-colour elegance: a dynamic and harmonious blend thatmakes a well-known, familiar taste current and contemporary. There are two major innovations, for both men and women, in terms of models and shapes. EZE: The first is EZE, an aesthetic tribute to the 90s, with its oversized shape and the mix and match style ofmaterials and colours reminiscent of a more underground, sophisticated taste. Eze is a new running shoe that is ultra-light, thanks to the use of innovative Eva technology, withdeliberately extreme volumes combining very different materials and colours.   SAINT DENIS: The second is SAINT DENIS: an original idea of what a sneaker is, it was inspired by basketball culture and style, innovatively interpreted while confirming the brand’s Parisian soul. This even includes thename: In addition to being one of the most famous multi-ethnic quarters of Paris, Saint Denis is alsowhere the first basketball court in the world was built in 1892, and where the first basketball match in France and in Europe took place in 1893. Despite the sport having been invented by James Naismithin the United States a year earlier, the French capital, and Saint Denis in particular, can claim the honour of having the oldest basketball court in the world. When it comes to aesthetics, both the sole and the upper are characterised by the dynamism and movement of their lines and by varied materials.   TRPX & PRSX: TRPX and PRSX, reinterpretations of the brand’s iconic models, are literally dressed in new texturesand colours, from fluorescent to animal print to vinyl, ensuring that the brand’s heritage is always instep with the times. While Montecarlo, the running shoe par excellence with an innovative design that has marked an important evolution of the brand in terms of proportions, takes the concept of colour blocking to the extreme, pairing pop with metal.     The Philippe Model Paris brand has its roots in the creative genius of the namesake French founder and artist who, thanks to his eclectic talent, has earned a prominent place among the world’s fashion greats. In 1978, at just 22 years old, Philippe Model launched his fashion accessories brand, immediately collaborating withFrance’s top couturiers. The brand gained prominence in the 1980s, when the first iconic shoe, the Elastique,became a symbol of modern femininity, well ahead of its time in terms of the revolutionary concept of comfort seen in future sneakers. 2008 marks the year in which the creative talent of the French designer and artist met Italian excellence and know-how. In 2016, the brand set down a new path of international developmentwhen it was acquired by 21 Invest, an Italian private equity firm led by Alessandro Benetton. In addition to its elegant Parisian showroom, in 2017 the brand opened its new head offices in Via Bigli, at the heart of Milan’s fashion district and just a few meters from the first single-brand shop, inaugurated in May of the same year, in Via Sant’Andrea 17. 2018 saw even more openings, such as the Parisian boutique in Rue de Grenelle, plus Saint Tropez, Lyon and Rome’s Piazza di Spagna location. In addition to strengthening strategic markets such as the USA and Asia, the brand has opened one new shop in South Korea and five in China. 90s aesthetics.
