Scotch & Soda presents their new collection for Spring 2021

Fashion For Spring 2021, Scotch & Soda brings a bold attitude to everyday dressing inspired by an original Nordic folktale.   Celebrating the power of self-expression, the collection connects classic with eclectic to establish a unique contemporary dress code that reflects the free-thinking spirit of the Scotch woman.   This new aesthetic sees workwear classics and denim – the core of every collection – reworked into a chic newtility uniform, elevated in rich fabrics and with subtly extravagant details.   Influenced by military outfits in the tale, key looks are executed in understated shades of khaki, army green and sand, and energised with pops of pink. A high-neck cotton twill shirt is feminised with ruffles and broderie anglaise, while a coordinating trucker jacket and high-waisted trousers come in soft- shine corduroy. Cargo trousers woven from recycled cotton and linen are cut in oversized proportions, and a clean wool-blend longline overshirt has military pocketing and stud detailing on the back and sleeves – clean designs instilled with an easy elegance that offer versatile wardrobe solutions.   Denim takes on a tailored look that expands on uniform dressing. A sleek belted denim jacket is paired with liquid-blue straight-leg jeans woven from a lyocell blend, and a boxy cotton trucker jacket in a vibrant seasonal pink is matched with boyfriend jeans finished with contrast stitching. Denim remains a focus for responsible design for spring: over half the seasonal range contains responsible fabrics or washes. This includes our new fit, the Charm, a sleek high-rise flare offered in two washes that contain organic cotton blends. All labels, zip tapes and stitching on our five-pocket jeans are made with recycled polyester, while the majority of back patches use recycled leather.   Refined essentials unite the collection, with an emphasis on ease and twists to timeless prints, from a fluid checked jumpsuit, to a graphic vertical striped jumper. Volume is explored in shirting and knitwear amplified with balloon sleeves, and full paper-bag trousers that nod to the fantastical, feminine silhouettes in the tale, but infused with a tough edge.   Vivid prints round up the season, contrasted against simple shapes. Ornate tapestry prints which depict the story of the folktale lead, appearing on a signature double-breasted suit. Fun numerical patterns drawn from military dog tags and bleeding florals are also prominent, all bespoke and hand- sketched in-house.   By effortlessly connecting the unexpected, Spring 21 offers a unique perspective on modern daywear that’s grounded in authentic, playfully detailed designs.

In conversation with Christian Louboutin

In conversation with Christian Louboutin

Design The lockdown was a relief for Christian Louboutin. A welcome break to reflect on thirty years of his shoe design. The designer, known for the red sole, shows his colors. "Before, I had too little time to think about sustainability and I mainly went along with the moment." A conversation about vision, roots and future. Two weeks after his retrospective exhibition L'Exhibitioniste opened in Paris at the end of February, the doors closed again. "It was like a fairy tale, à la Sleeping Beauty. The exhibition froze in the middle of winter and opened again in June without losing any of its topicality. ”The exhibition, which can be viewed until 3 January, is like 'a universe' where the shoe as a 'sacred object' is the common thread. is the creation of the French shoe designer for thirty years. The lockdown actually came as 'just called', says the designer from his studio in Paris with a strong French accent. Glasses adorn his forehead above a Mickey Mouse print t-shirt. Behind him on a cork notice board, Dolly Parton smiles into the camera.     Tell me how did you experience that period of stagnation?   "For me, the period of the lockdown was mostly positive. Of course, from a business point of view, this year presents many challenges. But I prefer to look at it rosy: it is a time of introspection. That obligatory pause for thought was pretty much the first in my career for me. Finally a breather. Time to reset and challenge myself again. "     What did that look bring in?   "I am a slow motion thinker. I need time for a change, want to be able to sleep on something overnight, rethink it. The retrospective on thirty years of work is reflected in various chapters. It is now time for a new chapter. My work will not change, but my process and approach do require change. Perhaps it is time to travel less and become more sustainable. Looking back, I didn't have enough time to think about these things. "     Sustainability has long been en vogue, hasn't it?   "Everyone talks about sustainability, that's true. But I don't want to fall into the marketing trap. Words like "sustainable" or "organic" sound great, but there is often a void behind them. I take it seriously and that means it takes time. I would like to do it well, instead of claiming to be sustainable because, for example, we use a different kind of leather. "     No vegan leather for Louboutin?   "It's about looking further. It is nice that some plants can replace leather. But if you have to cut down forests to plant those plants and then need a lot of water to make them grow, I don't think that's sustainable. Sustainability requires a thorough evaluation. Concepts such as vegan and fake leather fall short in this. Research on how to make less impact on the planet is at the heart of the new chapter. "     "A petit café, please."   Louboutin puts the receiver down on his desk as quickly as he picks it up. Behind him is an iconic patent leather stiletto, black with red sole, the heel about six centimeters high. He drinks his coffee black - and "not too hot".     Has your view of the planet changed this year?   "I feel that nature has sent us a lot of signals this year. Think of the water in Venice that was suddenly transparent. And also the sea that I look out on from my apartment in Rio de Janeiro. I've never seen the water so clear. Animals came back into the city… The power of nature to restore is immense. That gives me a lot of hope. We have the ability to change and transform what we have previously damaged. But that hope also requires responsibility and other choices. "     Thirty years of shoe design have passed. What will the future bring?   "This year stands for reflection. I am processing everything and trying to release new projects & new designs. The lockdown was a relief for Christian Louboutin. A welcome break to reflect on thirty years of his shoe design.

Chopard launches new timepieces for the Mille Miglia collection

Watches Since 1988, Chopard has been the main partner and official timekeeper of the famous endurance 1000 Miglia race, a close collaboration born of the Scheufele family's longstanding passion for classic cars, which Karl-Friedrich Scheufele – Co-President of the Maison – both collects and drives, including at various motorsports events.     Founded in 1927, the 1000 Miglia is one of the most famous automobile events in the world. Originally, the 1,618 km route – the equivalent of 1,005 Roman miles – was a speed race that started and ended in Brescia, with a passage through Rome. After its original formula was interrupted in 1957, the 1000 Miglia was relaunched in 1977 as an endurance race for cars built between 1927 and 1957, still covering 1,000 miles. Over the years, the original route has undergone a few changes, but has remained faithful to the route designed 93 years ago by the original organisers, criss-crossing Italian scenery that has remained virtually unchanged since the beginning of the 20th century.      Chopard is proud to present a new series of watches. The Mille Miglia Race Edition chronograph is available in a 250-piece limited edition with a 42 mm-diameter case in bead-blasted DLC stainless steel and ethical rose gold with black leather strap and dial; and in 1,000 pieces entirely in bead-blasted DLC stainless steel, each powered by a chronometer-certified mechanical movement with automatic winding.

ETNIA BARCELONA & IGNASI MONREAL

Accessories The Spanish eyewear brand Etnia Barcelona likes to describe itself as independent, rebellious and unruly. It does what it wants, does not follow trends and sets its own course. In the contemporary Spanish artist Ignasi Monreal, the brand also found that the perfect partner in crime for a collaboration. Ignasi Monreal is the "enfant terrible" of contemporary Spanish artists. He paints, makes ceramics, videos and animations, designs and sometimes works as a creative director. In short, a multi-talent that is difficult to pigeonhole. That is precisely why he and Etnia Barcelona are such a good match. Because this Spanish eyewear brand is also difficult to categorize under one heading. Both know their classics and draw effortlessly from history, but just as easily work with new forms and techniques. Everything they make is personal and unique with surrealism as an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Both also like to create visual surprises, resulting in these unique sunglasses. The cubist shape and the two extra eyes are both intriguing and confusing and refer to modern pop art as much as to classical religious work.

JEROME DREYFUSS SPRING SUMMER 2021

Fashion “The current crisis has strengthened our convictions: producing less to curb rampant consumerism, reducing the number of annual collections, promoting the use of materials from sustainable agricultural. We have gone from 4 to 2 collectionsa year, I hope that we will be able to keep to this pace and step gracefully out of the rat race. We don’t need new modelsevery two months.” Jérôme Dreyfuss     Two collections per year, but more creativity, more colors, different leathers and natural- ber fabric woven in France. Responsible materials. Without ever losing sight of the woman who walks past our boutique window, who can’t decide between two colors, who thinks before buying. The woman who breaks open her piggy bank for a suede Germain, the one who collects every single Charly. The one who wants to carry Lulu, Bobi, Léon, all the time. The one who is going to pass on Lino, as a gift, or maybe sell it online. So what? Women have a thousand lives. And so do our bags.     SPRING SUMMER 2021   Summer sewn up within French borders. Gypsy at heart. Summer in Camargue, amingos re ected in pink salt ats beneath sun-bleached skies. Galloping bareback on white horses, hair blowing in the wind, a pack slung over your shoulder. Dreams of the open road, a nomad’s life, sleeping under the stars. Caravans, cavalcades, dueling guitars. Peels of laughter from the back of a van. Getting away, running away. A picture postcard. Freedom.   “The current crisis has strengthened our convictions: producing less to curb rampant consumerism, reducing the number of annual collections, promoting the use of materials from sustainable agricultural.

CRUYFF OPENS FLAGSHIP STORE IN MANCHESTER

Fashion After the success of the stores in Barcelona and Amsterdam, Cruyff opens its doors in Manchester today. The new luxury boutique is located in Arndale, the heart of Manchester. A bold move to open a new store in the current pandemic, but the attack is the best defense. "We are very excited and proud to open our first Manchester store. The city is an iconic hub for music and creativity. It's also one of the largest soccer cities in the world, a perfect combination". according to Ferenc van der Vlies, co-owner of Cruyff.     The store proudly embodies the vision of Cruyff, a spacious but modest space in the city of Manchester. In the words of Johan Cruyff: 'you will see it when you get it'. Cruyff offers a wide range of first class men's and women's shoes, sneakers, tracksuits, puffer jackets, graphic shirts and classic tracktops. Sleek lines and sharp silhouettes throughout the store reflect the range of clothing and shoes that complement each other for an immersive, first-class shopping experience. In addition to Cruyff, the store will also provide space for guest brands, fully in line with Johan's philosophy as a trainer, giving talented brands a stage. With Cruyff's ethos and core values, the upcoming men's clothing brand 'Off The Pitch' from Rotterdam will kick off as the first guest.       After the success of the stores in Barcelona and Amsterdam, Cruyff opens its doors in Manchester today. The new luxury boutique is located in Arndale, the heart of Manchester. A bold move to open a new store in the current pandemic, but the attack is the best defense.
