GIVENCHY DEBUTS "TEASER" CAPSULE COLLECTION BY MATTHEW M. WILLIAMS

Fashion Givenchy is pleased to unveil a “Teaser” capsule of clothes and accessories from Creative Director Matthew M. Williams’ first collection for the House.     An edited selection from the Spring-Summer 2021 ready-to-wear collection features playful, slightly subversive and effortlessly elegant looks for both women and men. Directional pieces accentuate new tailoring for women as embodied by a long, fitted blazer with a draped collar and slim, high-rise trousers with fusing at the ankles. Denims are embellished with audacious, intricate treatments that give them unique crackled or lustrous finishes. A soft, denim-like jacquard with a textured weave reprises the House’s iconic 4G emblem. Statement outerwear includes a lightweight, tailored three- quarter length coat in croc-print calfskin bonded with nappa, and voluminous urban windbreakers also in croc-print leather or in black ottoman.     Key pieces for men include a single-breasted jacket with an overlay collar and the 4G emblem discreetly embroidered on the lining. Classic-fit trousers nod to the iconic Antigona bags with original yet discreet metallic details, as do boxy shirts with zip and snap closures. An oversized parka in technical ottoman emphasizes Givenchy’s of-the-moment urban spirit, with design elements that make it both functional and elegant. Hoodies and sweatshirts, too, are embellished with newly restyled Givenchy emblems.     A love of hardware being central to his fashion aesthetic, Matthew M. Williams created a series of tech- forward prints for T-shirts with a 3D chain-embossed detail at the neck or trompe l’oeil renderings of locks and eyelets clenched over spliced “GIVENCHY” lettering.     This season’s essential bags likewise feature distinctive hardware that was specially developed by Matthew M. Williams for Givenchy. The new Antigona in black box leather now has dual Givenchy signatures, longer handles and a 4G padlock. Additional styles include two cross-body bags, the unisex Vertical mini with chain and the Antigona U for men.     Footwear includes the Lock ankle boot, the Marshmallow wedge slide for women and flat sandal for men, and the GIV 1 high-performance men’s sneaker with a lightweight, transparent sole, in black or white.     The statement-making flat cap with horns and a black leather belt with a G-chain buckle round out this premiere.     The “Teaser” capsule collection will premiere exclusively in seven Givenchy stores in Europe, Asia and the US, as well as on givenchy.com in selected countries from December 1st to 22nd, 2020. It will be followed by the first official drop by Matthew M Williams, for Summer 2021, which will bow acrossGivenchy’s worldwide retail network on February 26th, 2021.

SO Presents: Casey Amsterdam

Accessories The first sustainable and vegan brand for phone cases.     After having worked together at a large commercial phone brand, power couple Seger and Kristie dreamed of founding their own company. A company which focuses on values they consider important: sustainability, honesty and animal welfare. With Casey Amsterdam they realized that dream as they have now launched the first sustainable and vegan phone case brand.     The new way of carrying your phone:   The collection consists of a sustainable line of cases made of biodegradable material and a vegan line of cases made of high-quality faux leather. The label was also the first to design a phone case which you wear on the long side of the phone (like a holster). This way your phone is worn close to your body, and you won’t have it dangling down like the existing phone bags. Typically something which makes you wonder: why wasn’t this on the market already? Surely to say that this is the result of the creative "out-of-the-box" thinking that characterizes the brand.      Quality and environment:   Casey Amsterdam always strives for the highest possible quality while taking the environment into account. This is at the heart of their brand culture; from the manual manufacturing of the products to sustainable decision making in respect of all steps of the manufacturing, transport and sales processes. In addition, the brand is on a mission towards a world in which we no longer wear or use real leather. We strongly oppose to the way we are currently treating our animals. Casey is therefore proud to have obtained the Peta Approved Vegan quality mark for the premium microfiber material they developed themselves. "It looks like leather. It feels like leather. It endures like leather. But it's vegan."     As a fashion accessory, a practical way to store your phone, or as a conscious choice to contribute to a world where sustainable and fair manufacturing is practiced.  Casey Amsterdam is the first Dutch brand to produce vegan phone cases with the upmost love and passion.

Sweet embroideries of archival lilies of the valley pop up on both deconstructed faille frocks enriched with oversized bows and sleek skirt suits, as well as functional windbreakers. Jacquard trench coats, cocoon capes and knitted cardigans with an artisanal feel are punctuated by ribbons. Timeless gingham patterns are decorated with blooming owers on frocks cut in bold silhouettes, while the lightweight point d’esprit tulle skirts are worn with practical quilted outwear styles. Suggestive patterns of landscapes with an Oriental feel add an intriguing twist to uid dresses and oversized pajama sets with a relaxed edge. Denim gets a special treatment with Japanese pottery-inspired prints. In keeping with the eclectic spirit of the ready-to-wear lineup, the bag collection is a mix of functionality, urban and sporty touches, as well as feminine, romantic vibes. New styles include the “Knot Me Up!,” a nylon crossbody style decorated with a maxi knot; the “Minimaxi Chain” and “Minimaxi Scoubi,” showing a macro chain and a scooby doo knot handle; the “Rebel Bow” range, featuring a a clutch, a micro pouch and a hand bag showing soft maxi bows. The look is completed by versatile footwear styles, spanning from urban cool combat boots and sneakers with chunky soles to elegant kitten heel sandals.

Zenology presents their new capsule collection

Lifestyle “I am continuously inspired by fragrance - the way it triggers memories, transports to a different setting, and creates emotions. Immersing myself in creating the bold and new certainly excites me, but it is the comfort of iconic classics that inspired me to develop new fragrance-driven products from our treasured favorite fragrance.     The Camellia Sinensis fragrance is our iconic scent that sparked the hotel industry and many others to delve into the power of scent. So for me, it was the logical and the perfect way to start this journey. The calming and soothing notes of this fragrance soon became instantly recognizable and synonymous with ZENOLOGY. The woodiness of Black Tea, the herbaceous notes of Clary Sage, and the depth coming from the mysterious Guaiac Wood create a scent that fits all seasons and adapts to every setting.    However, during the colder months when the days are darker it adds the much-needed warmth and comfort. That's why I would like to present to you our black limited edition in our iconic Camellia Sinensis fragrance – as a diffuser, scented candle and hand & body cosmetics in 300 ml size including various gift sets in gift boxes designed to re-use.” - Jeroen Oude Sogtoen, Founder and Creative Director       ZENOLOGY presents a new limited black edition packaging in its treasured favorite Camellia Sinensis fragrance. Black tea, made from leaves of the Camellia Sinensis, will fill any space with its comforting and purifying woody steam.   smells like: Herbal tea   elements: Black Tea, Clary Sage, Guaiac Wood perfumer: Fredrik Dalman, In-House Perfumer ZENOLOGY       The collection features cosmetics duo’s in a new 300 ml (10.14 fl.oz.) format and comes in a matt-black square gift box.  ZENOLOGY is also launching new fragrance diffusers (sticks) and a scented candle as a part of the limited black edition that comes in a matt-black cylindrial gift box. “I am continuously inspired by fragrance - the way it triggers memories, transports to a different setting, and creates emotions.

In conversation with Taylor Zakhar Perez

Men Taylor Zakhar Perez was introduced to fans in Netflix's sequel ”The Kissing Booth 2” this summer as Marco, the most notable role of his career to date. Thanks to his singing and dancing skills, his social media exploded after the movie first came out. But acting is not all there is about him.       Taylor, you studied music theater before your acting career. How did your switch from theater to TV and film happen?   The natural progression of an actor/artist is working your way through different performance formats and learning about all the pieces of the puzzle...from stage to screen and even prop styling to producing.  To me, Los Angeles was the end goal and I was lucky enough to have a casting director refer me to a few acting studios to make the transition.      You have 7 siblings. What would you say is the most valuable thing you've learned growing up in such a big family?    First let me say that if you didn't grow up with brothers and sisters, you missed out. Even though they aggravate, antagonize and sometimes leave scars on your body, I wouldn't be who I am today without them. You learn patience, compassion and ultimately how to function in the world with all the personalities out there. I was lucky, my family prepared me for a lot of the curveballs in life and I developed a really good sense of humor.      Your background is of strong importance to you, it also impacted your major while studying. What made you so eager to study Spanish, Culture and Community?   College was a weird space, I had two majors, one minorand no friends. I took 25 units a quarter and my teachers thought I was a pain in the ass, but isn't everyone at that age? The outreach aspect intrigued me most on this particular major, I wanted to be of service in the underserved communities. I worked with an NGO that helped DREAMERS prep and apply to universities because it was sort of their only hope for success in higher education.      What is your goal you want to achieve in your acting career?   Just one? I have so many. My primary goal is to maintain my sense of selfand remember where I come from. That being said, I want to do everything from jumping out of helicopter action roles to pee your pants high-stakes comedies, but also diving into dark indie films that shed light on the unthinkable things that happen in this world. My goal is to be limitless; produce my own projects, bring my screenplays and ideas to life, and say yes to the right collaborations. So often we are forced to assimilate to what ”they” want us to be, but that's not me and it never will be.       When you auditioned for ”The Kissing Booth 2”, you didn't know what were you auditioning for. How did the role of Marco Pena change your life and what is the best thing about being part of this film?   Marco Peña sort of broke the internet when we premiered, it was madness. My Instagramgained millions of followers overnight and my face was everywhere. I am incredibly grateful for my costars that went through this a couple years back and they sort of helped me adapt to it. The best part of the whole experience has been the support from our director Vince Marcello, his attention to detail and specificity leveled me up as an artist and made set a safe place for us to be vulnerable. Also Joey, she just raised the bar and made me want to be better everyday.     How do you feel about your impending stardom status? Is it weird having so many fans all of a sudden following you on social media and trying to get in contact with you?   If fans text me, I'll hit them back. Sometimes I spend an hour just chatting with fans,getting to know them and get their take on life, love, whatever. Technology is cool, man. As for the “impending stardom” ... well, I think actualstardom is contingent on the next projects I choose. I can choose to be a one-trick pony or pivot into something more dramatic or action heavy. The choice is obvious and I'm all in.     You are very much into charitable work. What makes charity so important for you and do you support any specific charity organization or cause? Tell us more about about this part of your life.   My mom and dad come from humble beginnings and they've always made a point to tell us how privileged we were growing up. No joke, any time we were ungrateful,it turned into an hour lecture which ultimately turned into some kind of house/yard work.  I don't have one organization that I exclusively work with, but I have some family members with disabilities and I try to gear my outreach toward non-profits that support research or directly aid in a child's development (e.g. education, familial assistance, etc.);anything that can take the stress off of the working parents.      We know you love to travel, but this is heavily restricted at the moment. How did you spend your time during quarantine, besides riding your motorcycle?   Giving up traveling for a moment was tough, but it's for the greater good and I am all for that. I was able to finish a film I wrote, start working on another, collaborate with friends, get back on the piano and was able to take a step back and assess what my next move as an actor is. This “overnight” meteoric rise during a lockdown was like nothing I ever expected, but it allowed me to weigh the importance of everything in my life and have major clarity.

Tell us more about this finished project that you wrote.   I've been behind the scenes for many years working art department, bringing projects into production, casting and coordinating, etc. So for me, as I was pursuing a career in front of the camera,it only made sense to keep building my behind the camera knowledge as well. It also helped that I was at UCLA, which has a great TV & Film department, so I was able to take what I learned there and apply it to today.

What I CAN tell you is that the third film will make you feel some type of way, it's an emotional satisfying  culmination of a coming of age story. As with many film franchises (with heart),the final one is always about what these characters have learned since the beginning of their journey and I think everyone will be empowered after watching it.    For the full story and editorial, get your copy at: https://www.boutiquemags.com   TEAM CREDITS: Talent: Taylor Zakhar Perez @taylorzakharperez  Photography: Erinn Springer @springerinn Casting / EIC: Timotej Letonja @timiletonja Styling: Jordan Boothe @jordanboothestudio @lmcworldwide  Production: Maria Zakhar  Grooming: Brandy Moreno Creative direction: Erinn Springer & Maria Zakhar Interview by: Jana Letonja @janaletonja Special thanks to Amita Malani and Andrea Braff at @viewpoint.pr  Taylor Zakhar Perez was introduced to fans in Netflix's sequel ”The Kissing Booth 2” this summer as Marco, the most notable role of his career to date. Thanks to his singing and dancing skills, his social media exploded after the movie first came out. But acting is not all there is about him.       Taylor, you studied music theater before your acting career. How did your switch from theater to TV and film happen?   The natural progression of an actor/artist is working your way through different performance formats and learning about all the pieces of the puzzle...from stage to screen and even prop styling to producing.  To me, Los Angeles was the end goal and I was lucky enough to have a casting director refer me to a few acting studios to make the transition.      You have 7 siblings. What would you say is the most valuable thing you've learned growing up in such a big family?    First let me say that if you didn't grow up with brothers and sisters, you missed out. Even though they aggravate, antagonize and sometimes leave scars on your body, I wouldn't be who I am today without them. You learn patience, compassion and ultimately how to function in the world with all the personalities out there. I was lucky, my family prepared me for a lot of the curveballs in life and I developed a really good sense of humor.      Your background is of strong importance to you, it also impacted your major while studying. What made you so eager to study Spanish, Culture and Community?   College was a weird space, I had two majors, one minorand no friends. I took 25 units a quarter and my teachers thought I was a pain in the ass, but isn't everyone at that age? The outreach aspect intrigued me most on this particular major, I wanted to be of service in the underserved communities. I worked with an NGO that helped DREAMERS prep and apply to universities because it was sort of their only hope for success in higher education.      What is your goal you want to achieve in your acting career?   Just one? I have so many. My primary goal is to maintain my sense of selfand remember where I come from. That being said, I want to do everything from jumping out of helicopter action roles to pee your pants high-stakes comedies, but also diving into dark indie films that shed light on the unthinkable things that happen in this world. My goal is to be limitless; produce my own projects, bring my screenplays and ideas to life, and say yes to the right collaborations. So often we are forced to assimilate to what ”they” want us to be, but that's not me and it never will be.       When you auditioned for ”The Kissing Booth 2”, you didn't know what were you auditioning for. How did the role of Marco Pena change your life and what is the best thing about being part of this film?   Marco Peña sort of broke the internet when we premiered, it was madness. My Instagramgained millions of followers overnight and my face was everywhere. I am incredibly grateful for my costars that went through this a couple years back and they sort of helped me adapt to it. The best part of the whole experience has been the support from our director Vince Marcello, his attention to detail and specificity leveled me up as an artist and made set a safe place for us to be vulnerable. Also Joey, she just raised the bar and made me want to be better everyday.     How do you feel about your impending stardom status? Is it weird having so many fans all of a sudden following you on social media and trying to get in contact with you?   If fans text me, I'll hit them back. Sometimes I spend an hour just chatting with fans,getting to know them and get their take on life, love, whatever. Technology is cool, man. As for the “impending stardom” ... well, I think actualstardom is contingent on the next projects I choose. I can choose to be a one-trick pony or pivot into something more dramatic or action heavy. The choice is obvious and I'm all in.     You are very much into charitable work. What makes charity so important for you and do you support any specific charity organization or cause?
