Daily Paper Explores Family Structures in Their Latest Spring & Summer editorial

Fashion Following last year’s editorial in collaboration with the all-round creative Chakhani, this feature is centring the concepts of community and togetherness within a diverse family setting.    The editorial builds on Daily Paper's four brand pillars; inclusion, unity, creativity and heritage. Uplifting each individual culture rather than excluding any, Chakhani uses the traditional family portrait as a vehicle to convey his message.    Aligned with the brand’s values and vision, family is visualised as something not exclusively bound to a shared bloodline, but rather as something that can be chosen and celebrated in a multitude of ways.     EDITORIAL CREDITS: Creative direction and photography: @chakhani.pngStyling: @hallafarhatAssistant: @so.ambrosiaSet design: @marcusviniciusdqAssistant: @kpj____Casting: @tsellot @blackhead_conceptsHair: @nappychildMUA: @jenna.Ima.makeup @bymailinhProducer: @bbysu_chiAssistant: @anhnlv Talent: @zaidcharkaoui7 @gayundertheinfluence @iliaswalchshofer@whitneykiala @exoceexiste @can_soysal @sade.nadia @malsoo__27  @tisskeen @yvannovak @khadijasound @jesuisass Following last year’s editorial in collaboration with the all-round creative Chakhani, this feature is centring the concepts of community and togetherness within a diverse family setting.    The editorial builds on Daily Paper's four brand pillars; inclusion, unity, creativity and heritage.

DIESEL X DIESEL

DIESEL X DIESEL

Fashion When I arrived at Diesel, its founder Renzo Rosso was working on a unique, temporal take on fashion collaboration: past Diesel and present Diesel. He was studying how to fuse the label's heritage within the context, and outlook, of the year 2021. Then and now, together. I thought, what better a place to begin? I embraced this vision and I am proud to have worked alongside him in amplifying what you see here, today. In some ways, it symbolizes the passing of the proverbial baton; we are celebrating Diesel’s background as we steer into a new era, and I am excited about the direction in which we are heading.     Diesel is world famous for its irreverence, its boldness, and, simultaneously, its universality. Denim is its engine, and denim is a global fashion staple. Whether through subversion, irony or sometimes flat out audacity, there was always something more being said through a Diesel garment. There is commentary about the era, and there are reflections of the moment. Look closely, and you’ll find it everywhere.     With this in mind, Renzo wanted to create a layered capsule; one that brings back vintage Diesel pieces while updating them for 2021, a year in which the world looks profoundly different than it did in the 1980’s. He called it Diesel x Diesel, and I love this meta-referential title. It is a collection of revamped “classics,” brought into the brave new now. The line-up is a tight edit of 24 pieces, selected from a register of many thousands of garments.     To accompany this collection, I thought of a brand-new campaign. It is called “Fake Smiles” but the phrase has more to do with exaggeration than artifice. Channeling Diesel’s “For Successful Living” mantra, “Fake Smiles” is about our constant pursuit of happiness. The campaign’s images feature subjects in daily mundane scenarios, all masked with extra-joyful expressions, creating surreal imagery that evokes a sense of nostalgia and captures the spirit of the decades that inspired this collection.     Our intention is to steer Diesel into the 2020’s with a new focus; one that honors its iconicity and its unique history, yet one that is powered by today’s globalized and interconnected currents. It’s an extraordinary time to be a creative director and I look forward to sharing more with you as the year rolls on. - Glenn       MORE ABOUT THE COLLECTION:    Diesel x Diesel was born out of Renzo Rosso’s desire to reintroduce our timeless icons in the modern day. The capsule takes on a distinctly North American aesthetic, with a deep look back at all the memorable research trips that Renzo and his multicultural design team did back in the late ‘80s. Inspiration cues go back to college apparel, Route 66, and the essential Diesel identifier of workwear. A varsity jacket has been reimagined in extra-distressed leather, with a new Diesel typeface in patches across the shoulder blades. A mixed-material coat of shearling, cotton, leather and jacquard wool has been recreated; it was originally inspired by a late 1980’s research trip to the South of the U.S.  A treated leather vest from the tail end of the 1980’s has patches that recall an American road trip. For each piece, the underlying idea is the bridging of entities that are separated, whether governmentally (land borders) or temporally (the then-and-now).

DR. MARTENS X RICK OWENS

Accessories DR. MARTENS TEAMS UP WITH BRUTALIST-GRUNGE ICON RICK OWENS FOR AN EXPLOSIVE TWO-PART COLLABORATION     Dr. Martens are partnering up with the sartorially radical Rick Owens. Known for his post-apocalyptic reimagination of brutalist fashion, his designs defy convention and challenge physics. And now, after morethan 60 years of Dr. Martens and almost 30 years of Rick Owens, we’re nally uniting for one of our boldestcollaborations to date. And it’s long overdue.   Launching as a two-part collaboration in March and May, the collection is an exploration of Rick Owens’ dark, underground aesthetic applied to a classic DM’s silhouette. Subverting our 1460 Bex platform sole boot, which rose to notoriety in the 90s, our March drop is bound with the designer’s signature dramatic lacing system and loud with both brand’s philosophy for championing the alternative.   Renowned for eccentric, architectural garments, Owens’ sharp ascent to fame in the early 90s coincided with DM’sown grunge renaissance. An era when fashion was annel, orals and non-conformity, both our brands’ wearers anddie-hard following overlapped more often than they didn’t.   And our latest collaboration is no exception. Owens’ enthusiasm for dark-glam drapery and polished brutalism sees our 1460 Bex boot wrapped with Rick Owen’s trademark lacing system. Coming in a Black Smooth leather and complete with an additional pair of black laces, dual-branded sock liner and taupe heel loop. Sitting on a double-height Bex sole, the boot is nished with Taupe and Yellow double welt stitching on the Black 1460 Bex DS.   Available from 20.03.21 at drmartens.com/collaborations/rick-owens and select partners.

Chloé introduces the Kiss

Accessories Making its debut as part of the Spring Summer 2021 runway show, the Kiss bag stands out for its distinctive style – an alluring fusion of leather and jewellery to clasp in hand. With a sleek metal handle conjuring the curves of a feminine mouth, the design is a simultaneous expression of shape and sensation.     The Kiss draws inspiration from Chloé jewellery pieces that have complemented Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s recent collections. Sinuous andsensuous, the metal handle becomes the defining feature on three different styles: the Small bag, the Hobo and the minaudière. The Small Kiss makes an especially strong impression in a vibrant shade of green, while the Hobo appears relaxed and timeless in warm Arizona brown. Additional seasonal hues will include full blue, sandy beige and classic Chloé motty grey. The Small bag and Hobo styles are crafted in smooth calfskin; the minaudière is made from resin.     The Kiss has been conceived with various useful features such as removable/adjustable straps and smooth, seamless closures. As for carrying the Kiss, the metal hardware can be functional as a handle, decorative as a gleaming accent, or both. a resolutely modern bag that gives shape to desire.     The KISS will be available in chloé boutiques and on Chloé.com from February the 19th 2021.

Josh O’Connor captured by Gray Sorrenti for the new Eye/LOEWE/Nature

Men ‘Nature is integral to my LOEWE vision. The great outdoors, the wilderness even, offers both context and stimuli for what we do. In the case of Eye/LOEWE/Nature, nature is also the ideal backdrop to a collection of pragmatic pieces, both technical and crafty, from outerwear and T-shirts to shoes and accessories, designed for enjoying life outside.     This is the fifth season for Eye/LOEWE/Nature and the main focus of the collection is environmental responsibility. The thinking behind such a choice is circular: a collection devised for diving into nature must be created with a sense of respect for the environment. We focused on both recycling and upcycling, with the nal goal of being as sustainable as we can. Reusing and repurposing what has already had a life is not only a way to produce less and therefore cause less harm, but also a way to reassess craft, which is quintessentially LOEWE. Using existing sources gives uniqueness and warmth to each piece. Using recycled fabrics and yarns is a relief for nature. For every product sold, LOEWE will donate 15 euros to "A CASA for birds": a project aimed at creating semi-natural habitats for wildlife species in danger of extinction.     Vintage and workwear inspirations are mixed this season, with items that have been washed to achieve a distressed and aged feel. Hooded jackets have integrated backpacks that are both practical and unexpected. We have upcycled vintage Mexican carpets to create totally unique reversible jackets, each a mix of two carpets. Loose-fitting parkas a re patchworked from vintage quilts to create colour-block effects. Vintage parachutes are transformed into lightweight hooded jackets, vintage military jackets are cut into bermudas, and hooded parkas and vintage T-shirts are assembled to compose colourful stripe motifs on loose fitted tees. The upcycling and recycling ethos carries through to the accessories, with totes and bum bags crafted from quilted liners. We are also launching a new line in recycled nylon: bags that are super lightweight and easily packable, in functional shapes like roll top backpacks and camera bags, matching the outdoorsy spirit of ELN.     Materials are organic, upcycled and recycled, including the linen and cotton of jumpers and T-shirts. Shapes are loose, colors are muted, with occasional bright flashes of pink, orange and cobalt blue. Accessories such as scarves, hats and shoes complete the project with further focus on functionality.     The campaign features Josh O’Connor, photographed by Gray Sorrenti in the desert of Baja California, Mexico. Josh is caught in the midst of a solitary adventure, energetically confronting the elements. A van, parachute and motorbike allude to intense physical exploits under the glaring Mexican sun; man and nature bonded together.     To me, Eye/LOEWE/Nature is LOEWE at its most pragmatic, with an inspired eye. It has a timeless aura and playful practicality that sprout from an everlasting feeling of connection with nature.‘ Jonathan    #LOEWE #EYELOEWENATURE ‘Nature is integral to my LOEWE vision.

A.P.C. Sacai Interaction #9

Fashion As of spring 2019, A.P.C. has invited friends of the brand to collaborate on small collections on a regular basis.     The Interactions program has featured Kid Cudi, Suzanne Koller, Brain Dead, JJJJound, Carhartt WIP, Goop, Catherine Deneuve and Charlotte Chesnais. Today, A.P.C. is proud to present its new Interaction with Sacai, the Japanese brand founded in 1999 by Chitose Abe, famous for her innovative and experimental hybrid clothing. For this essentially unisex collection, available from XXS to XL, A.P.C. and Sacai had fun mixing their logos, resulting in: SA.P.C.AI.   The focus was then placed on uniting the iconic materials of each brand, denim and nylon, in order to bring a new approach to A.P.C.’s star clothing: jeans, the denim jacket, the denim dress and even the denim tote bag. Likewise, for jersey, Sacai sparked a small revolution by adding complexity to classic A.P.C. tees and sweatshirts with zipper effects and a choice of very heavyweight materials.     Finally, the silhouette was completed with sandals and white fringe sneakers.     As Jean Touitou explains, “This Interaction is a precise illustration of how A.P.C. and Sacai came together, inter- weaving diverse elements of language to achieve a sort of crossbreed that represents the style of our two brands. These pieces are unusual for us, as they push the limits of what we might call ‘wearability’ as far as possible. They are the fruit of a long process of creative deconstruction and reconstruction. We got enormous pleasure from seeing this clothing being taken apart and redesigned.     And to quote Maurice Blanchot, referring to the novel Destroy, She Said by Marguerite Duras: ‘Destroy. How this rings: softly, tenderly, absolutely.’ (Maurice Blanchot, Friendship, 1971). This is exactly what we felt when we achieved this work.”     The photos of this collection were shot by Tim Elkaïm under the artistic direction of Suzanne Koller.     Collection available from March 19, 2021.

LACOSTE X POLAROID: LET THE COLOR IN

Fashion Lacoste is in full color for Spring 2021 with a fresh collaboration with Polaroid. The Crocodile strikes a pose in the boldest of brights from the rainbow. Get ready to let the color in with the collection dropping March 17.     Lacoste is seeing life through rose—or red, green, and yellow—tinted glasses again in 2021: un ltered, close-up, and wide-angle. It’s about changing perspective, putting your best foot forward, and living in the present. It’s a chance to make a fresh start and leave 2020 behind, to redial and rethink the landscape to get ready to make new memories. The best way to good vibes is a brand-new collaboration between the crocodile brand and the iconic Polaroid brand for a technicolor capsule collection that’s bold, colorful and fun.     Polaroid has been capturing memories on glossy instant lm for over 80 years—from major events to private occasions— all in vibrant colors and warm tones. For Spring 2021, Lacoste dug deep into this legendary, high-color, and cultural heritage. Inspired by Polaroid’s famous rainbow logo from its rst instant color lm developed in 1963, the Lacoste x Polaroid collection centers around the distinctive blue, green, yellow, orange and red rainbow from the creative brand.     The Lacoste crocodile marches across bold, block-color backgrounds on classic polos and hoodies, while polo dresses and shirts in oversized stripes make for a supercharged silhouette that stands out. Accessories also feature the full-color treatment, as white sneakers get subtle color- ash accents, tennis shoes go rainbow-striped, and caps, watches and backpacks are a concentration of high-energy sporty style. Look carefully and you’ll see the crocodile has taken center stage with the pièce de résistance – a limited-edition Polaroid 600 instant camera.     For Lacoste Live, archive Lacoste images are layered onto colorful oversized polo shirts, hoodies, T-shirts and track pants.   Because 2021 is a time for new experiences, Lacoste has stepped up to the challenge of producing the rst-ever lmed ad created solely from Polaroid photos. Immortalized by Iconoclast in Marseille, in both natural and ash lighting, dancers and skaters create a jigsaw in perpetual movement one frame at a time, image by single image. United by the characteristic Polaroid rainbow spectrum and the Lacoste pieces in the collection, each shot is a tribute to joy, boldness, and freedom.     The collaboration drops online and in-store on March 17, when the Polaroid rainbow will take the oor in a super- sized decor as the collections comes to store windows.     The Lacoste x Polaroid collection will be available online and in Lacoste stores and spaces from March 17, 2021. The Lacoste Live x Polaroid collection will be available online and in selected stores in Paris, New York, Milan, London and Shanghai from March 17, 2021.
