KOMONO introduces their optical Collection for Spring & Summer 2021

Accessories Spring-Summer 2021 sees a radical shift in our optical collection towards more sustainable practices. The introduction of eco-acetate, a completely recyclable and biodegradable natural material, revolutionizes our optical collection in unseen ways. The material is bio-degradable at around 60% after 150 days and is key to our pledge to work with only ecologically responsible acetate by 2022.   Novelty is brought within the core collection with the launch of three new styles, the Richie, the Montell and the Jill. They represent the perfect solution for those looking for a more classical style with a twist. New colorways such as the Ash, Trip and Mirage are added following their success in our sunglasses range.

Four-Piece Arizona x adidas Superstar Collection

Four-Piece Arizona x adidas Superstar Collection

Accessories Back in July 2019, Arizona Iced Tea and adidas Originals held one of the wildest sneaker releases in recent history. The Three Stirpes and the discount tea brand delivered a handful of colorful teal and pink Continentals and Yung-96 at a New York City pop up for the drink’s MSRP of 99 cents. Yes, $1 kicks. Naturally, the event got out of hand and NYPD had to step in and shut the shit down. It was a true success in marketing terms, so much so that the hype flowed onto their follow-up collection a mere month later. Now, after putting their partnership on ice, the duo return for a four-piece Arizona x adidas Superstar capsule, and today we’ve got a first look at one of those pairs.     In keeping with the Tea’s brand aesthetic, the pairs arrive in the OG can’s teal, pink, mint, and yellow hues paired with creamy leathers and shell toes. Paneling is mismatched, with beacon-debossed profile panels in teal, sail, mint, and pink respectively, each featuring tonal Three Stripe overlays. Playful motifs arrive embroidered in seemingly random placements, including bison-riding mascots, the recurring beacon motif — and even a playful jive about big cans. Further whimsical touches are added at the frozen face emoji dubraes and icicle-laden tongue tags, before co-branding floods the release at the rear overlays, insoles, and underfoot the translucent outsole. Completing the design is a quartet of lace sets, all tucked away in a casing inspired by Arizona’s Cherry Blossom Green Tea packaging.     With a second pair on the way but yet to surface — as well as confirmation on the pack’s release — you’ll want to make sure that you keep your eyes glued to our official Twitter account for further updates. Until then, you enjoy a detailed look at the first pair here below.     Adidas has unveiled their new Arizona x adidas Superstar capsule, revealing the remaining three options in the process. Two arrive in solid color options with identical markings that the first-previewed pair, while the fourth, and most recognizable, sports the cherry blossom print all over. A release has been set for February 4th, 2021, with pairs retailing for $100 a pop.     If you’re planning on picking up a pair next month, make sure you set yourself a reminder for the drop right here on our dedicated adidas Release Dates Calendar.

Christian Wijnants presents Menswear Collection for Winter 2021

Men A child’s outlook can be the most inspiring - imaginative and spirited, not yet touched by the world. As memories have served as the thread connecting Christian Wijnants’ most recent collections, Winter 2021 Menswear was no different as he narrowed in on his adolescent years, revisiting them with a whole new outlook.     The patterns tell this story, playful and graphic, referencing stripes that Christian remembers from his father’s ties, reimagined in various ways; exaggerated and manipulated, seen as a magnified stripe on a two-tone turtleneck and patterned for a checkered trench coat. The knitwear introduced Mohair pieces, a first time for the brand, along with jacquard jumpers that reference Pointillism, the use of the Mouliné knit technique in chunky separates, and the Ottoman Knit, a twist on a traditional rib pattern that is instead horizontal. The color palette varies from deep tones of bordeaux, dark navy and forest, to icier brights, amethyst, sky, and teal.     The collection finds a balance between leisure and sophistication, ease and tailored, exploring the growth through those prominent years of childhood learning. It is curated and thoughtful, offering a narrow selection of silhouettes, produced in a variety of patterns and fabrics, each taking on their own identity. The same classic shirt is produced in both silk and viscose and trench coat in cotton and checkered virgin wool.       Credits: Model Erik van Gils the BAND Management Photography Jorre Janssens Hair and Makeup Sanne Schoofs Location CC Westrand, Dilbeek A child’s outlook can be the most inspiring - imaginative and spirited, not yet touched by the world.

Louis Vuitton Aerogram by Virgil Abloh

Louis Vuitton Aerogram by Virgil Abloh

Accessories An aerogram is a lightweight sheet of writing paper that folds to form an envelope with a printed stamp, ready to be sent by airmail.     For Louis Vuitton, it symbolises the Art of Travel, a heritage close to the House’s heart that is intertwined with the most marvellous aviation experiences. Aerogram, the new collection of men’s leather goods, echoes this universe’s emblems, conveying a more contemporary than ever vision of travel.   Here, the edges are folded or bias cut at the ends, bringing to mind the shape of this historic letter associated with the rst Concorde journeys. A zipped pochette, a bumbag or a backpack, a Messenger or Keepall bag, a tote bag or a Soft Trunk Phone Box: all are crafted in black grained leather, with an exceptional suppleness resulting from special leatherwork in the House’s workshops. Connecting the heritage of travel with modernity, the Aerogram collection features clear-cut, almost architectural, lines that convey an utterly urban look created by Virgil Abloh.     On some pieces, a luggage tag, also in black leather, may evoke an on-the-go silhouette. The Louis Vuitton embossed leather signature on each piece is reminiscent of the seal, a relief promise of new horizons, from its origin to the destination of its dreams.     An aerogram is a lightweight sheet of writing paper that folds to form an envelope with a printed stamp, ready to be sent by airmail.     For Louis Vuitton, it symbolises the Art of Travel, a heritage close to the House’s heart that is intertwined with the most marvellous aviation experiences.

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.
