CHANEL PRESENTS THE NEW COLLECTION FOR FALL & WINTER 2021-2022

Fashion Week “I love contrasts, so for the more voluminous winter pieces, I wanted a small space. I don’t know if this is because of the times we live in, but I wanted something warm, lively. I imagined the models doing a show for themselves, going from room to room, crossing each other in staircases, piling their coats up in the cloakroom and going up to the next floor to get changed. And I thought of the shows that Karl would tell me about, back in the day, a long time ago, when the models would dress themselves and do their own make-up,” says Virginie Viard describing the atmosphere of the CHANEL Fall-Winter 2021/22 Ready-to-Wear show.     “So, I decided to go to Castel. I like Castel so much for its many salons, the spiral staircase, its bar, the journey through this venue, its little house style, where the models can get changed, dressed and undressed, do their make-up together, and have fun like a girls night in. It’s very sensual.” A sensuality that also touches the collection teasers and press kit, staged by the duo Inez & Vinoodh who filmed this show playing with the contrasts so loved by Virginie Viard. Contrasts between volumes, materials and spirit. A long tweed coat with a chevron motif reveals bare legs wearing voluminous boots in black curly faux fur; a trouser suit in black tweed with small checks in blue lurex is adorned with thin braces in pearls and layers of sautoir necklaces. A white coat in patent sheepskin and lined with faux fur, is coupled with “down jacket” style two-tone boots, with unzippable legs giving way to a pair of silver heeled booties to go dancing in. The salopettes-ski suits in white quilting embroidered with red and blue motifs, or in fuchsia tweed, are worn with strappy sandals embellished with chains and little black bows or pumps adorned with a camellia, while delicate blouses in chiffon or crêpe de Chine are combined with pieces inspired by winter sportswear. “This collection is a mix of two influences: the ambiance of ski holidays, which I adore, and a certain idea of cool Parisian chic, from the 1970s to now.”     Sequinned ballet flats, strass-covered minaudières worn like a sautoir necklace, a man’s black shirt with a white collar and cuffs under a precious suit in navy lurex, a tweed kilt over a knitted jumpsuit embellished with iridescent threads… “Today some of these silhouettes make me think of Stella Tennant’s allure, the way she wore certain pieces, it was so Chanel.”       #CHANELFallWinter “I love contrasts, so for the more voluminous winter pieces, I wanted a small space.

DIOR PRESENTS THE NEW COLLECTION FOR FALL & WINTER 2021-2022

Fashion Week For the autumn-winter 2021-2022 ready-to-wear collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri explores the world of fairy tales. A network of symbols, these fantasy worlds are in no way a means of escape; they serve to question and challenge, above and beyond stereotypes. Like an invitation to self-affirmation, the tin soldier’s uniform is transformed into a series of blue cashmere coats enhanced with red and white accents. Black takes pride of place on a range of looks, from skirts to the Bar jacket punctuated with Dior’s iconic cannage motif or fitted with a hood, which might have been worn by Angela Carter’s Little Red Riding Hood*. Reinvented, feminine magic, and a subtle path towards a new awareness.     #DiorAW21 For the autumn-winter 2021-2022 ready-to-wear collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri explores the world of fairy tales.

In conversation with Pim Dresen

Accessories We had a delight speaking with Pim Dresen founder of Mercer Amsterdam is a high-end sneaker label.     Tell our readers who you are in your own words.   You can describe me as a passionate sneaker designer, a creative entrepreneur and collector of unique objects.  Tennis has been in my live ever since I took my first steps, I can say that the sport made me who I am, persistent, open minded and respectful.  I always had a passion for the American sports heritage, which you can tell, observing my designs.      What is your first memory of shoes and fashion?   By the age of ten I bought my first pair of sneakers at Mercer Street, NYC, those white orange kicks got me more than excited, I can say they were my first love. It was the moment I realized a shoe can be more than an object, for me special sneakers can be a form of art.       Among all the designs so far, which one embodies your personality the most?   I don’t care for doing safe business, I like to go for extraordinary ideas, like the shoe I designed for NASA spacecraft. The creation was born out of my Iconic W3rd design. This sneaker was firstly perceived as quite a disruptive shoe. It was one of the first bulky shoes on the market, and this design took some time to land. It was way before the trend of bulky sneakers hit in and it was just me who felt for the design. When sales of this particular W3rd design went sky high it gave me the confident to fully pursue my own vision. And then when even Nasa wanted to work with me, it literally felt like the sky was my limit.        What gives you confidence in life?    To see the brand growing over the years in an unexpected way. Some of the craziest ideas became the most loved ones.         Who is the one voice that has inspired you the most in your personal life and your career?   After years of entrepreneurships the book Shoe dog, by Phil Knight was launched. I had the feeling I was reading my own words: whatever you do, don’t quit…  Of course, doing business in fashion is not only blue skies and among the years also people passed by who shared their mis-believe. I think the words in my head telling me not to quit just gave me that little extra confidence and force to prove my vision was all I needed to create beautiful things.       What is the most daring thing you did recently and tell us something that is not on your resume?   I signed the contract for our first brand store, the moment Covid- 19 kicked in. I just felt for this place, the energy was right, nothing too fancy, just nice light due to the many windows at a unique corner spot at The Pijp in Amterdam. The feeling this was the perfect spot to inspire and be inspired took over and just once more I decided not to go for the safe sight.       What are your upcoming projects  and new collections for this year?   We just released a sneaker made from vegan wine leather, made out of Italian deadstock grapes.  This vegan material behaves exactly like conventional leather and we were honored to be the first ones to create a sneaker out of it.” Unique vegan materials are an important part of our DNA and we like to make a statement turning them into effortlessly cool designs. We will continue our ‘ It’s not all socks and sandals campaign’, to show our sneakers can be unique and cool and vegan by making a statement with our locally sourced sheep woolen sneaker.      Furthermore, to support the development of a more sustainable fashion industry as a whole, Mercer just started a new project: At our new and first brand store at de Ferdinand Bolstraat 54, de Pijp, Amsterdam, people can bring their old sneakers, not just Mercer but any kind, after which they will receive a discount for their next purchase. An 8,7 percent which symbols the 87 million shoes which end up on the landfill each year. The recycle box can be found at a prominent position in the middle of the store.    The old sneakers will be fully recycled in a small town in the Netherlands, after which new textiles will be created that we also will use for our new designs.“     Why design? What inspired you to embark on a career in this industry?   I always had a passion for unique design in general. Cars, furniture, etc. My ongoing ideas about sneakers and apparel never matched any brand and this made me even  change my career as a banker to turn my creative thoughts into something beautiful.        With work you have traveled a lot. What are some of the favorite places you have seen and been to so far and why?   I love everything about NYC, the city which never sleeps, just like me.        What is your biggest outtake from last year?   Courage…      As the theme of our Spring & Summer season is ELEMENTS and it is about sustainability, nature. Tell us about your perspective on sustainability and environment.   From my personal motivation I changed the game a few years ago from designing a beautiful product to products with a story. This resulted into designing sneakers from the most exclusive plant-based and Vegan materials.  We had the honour to be the first brand ever to work with pineapple leather and as I said this month, we pioneered with our Iconic Mercer W3RD sneaker made from Wine leather.  Considering fashion is the most polluting industry in the world I think it is very important for us a small brand to make a statement and show that it is possible to make sneakers with alternative materials and source our materials locally instead of internationally. This is why we have been named brand leader of sustainability in the industry of fashion.      What makes MERCER unique and what is the purpose of creating the shoes?   At Mercer we want to change the perception of the consumer regarding sustainable and vegan products.    First we make something cool and special, and then our hidden gem, is the unique sustainable story which lays behind. In this way we can convince people to buy environmentally friendly sneakers who were not even specifically looking for this in the first place.     Mercer started out of a sneaker filled bedroom of a young guy, who was highly excited every time he sold a pair through his web shop. “In the beginning I was so thrilled every time someone would order something, and I would always personally ship the package. That excitement is still present within me and the brand. I never want to make any compromises in creating a high-quality sneaker that is the result of genuine sustainable products and an honest story.”    We had a delight speaking with Pim Dresen founder of Mercer Amsterdam is a high-end sneaker label.     Tell our readers who you are in your own words.   You can describe me as a passionate sneaker designer, a creative entrepreneur and collector of unique objects.  Tennis has been in my live ever since I took my first steps, I can say that the sport made me who I am, persistent, open minded and respectful.  I always had a passion for the American sports heritage, which you can tell, observing my designs.      What is your first memory of shoes and fashion?   By the age of ten I bought my first pair of sneakers at Mercer Street, NYC, those white orange kicks got me more than excited, I can say they were my first love.

 BALMAIN PRESENTS THE FALL & WINTER 2021-2022 COLLECTION

BALMAIN PRESENTS THE FALL & WINTER 2021-2022 COLLECTION

Fashion Week 75 years ago, after the incredible triumph of his house’s first couture presentation, what did Pierre Balmain do?     He packed up his bags and started traveling.     He jetted off to America, not to talk about collections, but instead, following the directive of his friend Gertrude Stein, to act as a roving ambassador, criss-crossing the entire United States to deliver lectures on French culture and savoir-faire. He also jumped across the Channel, transporting his fresh new feminine take on couture to London, six years after the war had abruptly put an end to all imports of Parisian fashion. And, after an eight-day, multi- stop series of flights across half the globe, he touched down in Australia, bringing news of his “New French Style” to Down Under (and, of course, making sure to include a visit to the Sydney suburb of Balmain).     Now, post-2020, it’s a whole lot easier for us to appreciate just how exciting those trips must have been for Pierre Balmain. After the anxious years of war and occupation, he was suddenly being offered the long-denied possibility of escaping to destinations that he had been dreaming about for years—and it must have felt incredible.     Today’s video and men’s and women’s collections aim to channel that amazing sensation of freedom. We remember the impressive power of travel to open minds, uplift spirits and reunite those who have been kept apart, as we all look forward to soon-to-arrive better days.     Many of our designs riff on the distinctive beauty found in the uniforms of early pilots and astronauts, with takes on parachute dresses, lace-up flight boots, bomber jackets and shimmering anti-g jumpsuits. One particularly striking design relies on over 68 thousand upcycled Swarovski crystals, making very clear our atelier’s success in mixing luxury embellishments with these aviator inspirations.     As you’d expect, accessories form an important part of this collection—exactly as they do in actual trips—with a wide range of new offerings from the house. The many soft and structured carry-ons are covered with a dazzling array of color and fabric plays on Balmain’s recently relaunched Labyrinth print, and there are many clever takes on bags that look to compasses, paper airplanes and even travel neck pillows for inspiration.     And I’m sure that you’ve noticed the attitude. Balmain is Parisian, so there’s always a touch of this city’s signature insouciance in every one of our designs—but Fall 2021’s referencing of the daring audaciousness of flight pioneers seems to have somehow magnified that familiar spirit. We also, of course, look back to the glamour of mid-century travel—something that is clearly reflected in the sleek lines of our new ELY 64-83 collection (named for the house’s original telephone exchange: ELYsées 64-83, which also lent its name to Balmain’s first perfume). That range, inspired by an early ‘70s Pierre Balmain design, recalls the chic and feminine silhouettes that our founder relied on, as he and a handful of other young talents ushered in Paris’ historic post-war fashion renaissance.     Valentin Petit and his team shot today’s video inside Air France’s impressive hangars, where aeronautical and technological expertise make possible the elegant beauty of flight—just as the skills of our Parisian atelier allow Balmain runways to soar. Saluting that shared exceptional devotion to excellence, many of our artisans’ intricate embroideries were inspired by the wiring, construction and mechanics of the sleek planes and engines that play key roles in today’s film.     Finally, I insisted on pushing the envelope a bit for our Fall 2021 video—because today, as we move forward, we need to always dream big, remain optimistic and consider all possibilities. So, the moon forms not just a beautiful backdrop for this video, but also a promise—as Balmain looks ahead to the house’s future lunar runways. 75 years ago, after the incredible triumph of his house’s first couture presentation, what did Pierre Balmain do?     He packed up his bags and started traveling.     He jetted off to America, not to talk about collections, but instead, following the directive of his friend Gertrude Stein, to act as a roving ambassador, criss-crossing the entire United States to deliver lectures on French culture and savoir-faire.

FASTEN YOUR SEATBELT! CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN INVITES YOU ON LOUBI AIRWAYS TO DISCOVER HIS FALL-WINTER 2021 WOMEN’S & MEN’S COLLECTIONS

Accessories Good morning passengers, this is you captain speaking. Welcome aboard this CL1991 flight from Paris to Loubiville.     To unveil his Fall-Winter 2021 collections, Christian Louboutin imagined a one-of-a-kind digital presentation inspired by his infinite love of travel, whether physical or imaginary. Following state-of-the-art immersive experiences on Drest and Zepeto’splatforms, the House explores 3D technology this season. A fully interactive airplane was conceived to enjoy an exclusive moment discovering Christian Louboutin’s collections via a dreamy air journey.     Rendez-vous at the iconic TWA Terminal in JFK Airport in New York, a boldly futuristic space designed by famous architect Eero Saarinen, perfectly embodying the glamorous Golden Age of air travel. The Loubicrew, a cast of dynamic figures, cross the space scanned from head to toe by the passengers waiting to board. A stop is still required at the security check. Red alert! The Xray scanner is on overload! The pilot’s giant Loubi Airways Kypipouch hides the new Caracaba bag and ChristianLouboutin’s new fragrance, the Loubishark & Louis Spikes sneakers trigger the alarm and the security officer is enamored by the Blaster bag.     Bags cleared? Let’s board the Loubiplane, a space entirely redesigned with the House’s iconic details, from the red flooring to the seats customised with a bespoke print and seatbelts featuring the Loubi Airways logo. Imagined as a complete immersion into Christian Louboutin’s universe, the airplane journey is a succession of nine interactive animations featuring the key themes of the collection.     But safety first, the aircrew reinvents the traditional security video in an entertaining and stylish way. The tone is set! For more instructions, look at the card in front of your seat for in-flight styling tips highlighting this season’s lug sole range including sandals, boots and loafers, blending Christian Louboutin’s elegance with a contemporary vibe.     Need to flex your legs? Have a walk and discover the two customised airflight trolleys presenting the house’s latest fragrances and lipstick collections and a selection of cozy shoes and accessories that can be worn indoors and outdoors. The designer chose materials such as faux shearling for pool slides and iridescent velvet to maximize the comfort while keeping it luxurious and stylish.     Before going back to your seat, take a moment to check out the luggage in the lounge area which showcases ChristianLouboutin’s newest creations featuring an exclusive, playful and fun Oh Xtian! print made from a collage of many inspirations such as fashion magazines, retro posters, advertisements, vintage floral photographs and movie scenes.     In case you’d like to add sparkle to your journey, have a look in the overhead compartments: an Xray animation showcases this season’s new crystal-incrusted heels, introduced on retro styles in bright colors and a typical French Vichy pattern.     The airplane encounters fashion turbulence? Relax and enjoy some entertainment with the Loubi Inflight Magazine introducing Christian Louboutin’s rock & swing inspired group featuring signature hardware and spike details, applied on loafers, slippers and boots. More food for thought? The Loubi Times newspaper is at your disposal. And don’t forget to read some of the latest gossip of the House in OMG Magazine!     One last drink before landing? Head to the bar area at the back of the plane where a fortune telling tarot station will introduce you to an exclusive print decorating iconic shoes while also serving as the inspiration for this season’s Caracaba bag.     To all passengers, we just landed at Loubiville Airport. On behalf of Loubi Airways and the entire crew, we wish you all a pleasant stay.     DIGITAL EXPERIENCE HERE: https://loubiairways.christianlouboutin.com Good morning passengers, this is you captain speaking.

The pilot’s giant Loubi Airways Kypipouch hides the new Caracaba bag and ChristianLouboutin’s new fragrance, the Loubishark & Louis Spikes sneakers trigger the alarm and the security officer is enamored by the Blaster bag.     Bags cleared? Let’s board the Loubiplane, a space entirely redesigned with the House’s iconic details, from the red flooring to the seats customised with a bespoke print and seatbelts featuring the Loubi Airways logo. Imagined as a complete immersion into Christian Louboutin’s universe, the airplane journey is a succession of nine interactive animations featuring the key themes of the collection.     But safety first, the aircrew reinvents the traditional security video in an entertaining and stylish way. The tone is set! For more instructions, look at the card in front of your seat for in-flight styling tips highlighting this season’s lug sole range including sandals, boots and loafers, blending Christian Louboutin’s elegance with a contemporary vibe.     Need to flex your legs? Have a walk and discover the two customised airflight trolleys presenting the house’s latest fragrances and lipstick collections and a selection of cozy shoes and accessories that can be worn indoors and outdoors. The designer chose materials such as faux shearling for pool slides and iridescent velvet to maximize the comfort while keeping it luxurious and stylish.     Before going back to your seat, take a moment to check out the luggage in the lounge area which showcases ChristianLouboutin’s newest creations featuring an exclusive, playful and fun Oh Xtian! print made from a collage of many inspirations such as fashion magazines, retro posters, advertisements, vintage floral photographs and movie scenes.     In case you’d like to add sparkle to your journey, have a look in the overhead compartments: an Xray animation showcases this season’s new crystal-incrusted heels, introduced on retro styles in bright colors and a typical French Vichy pattern.     The airplane encounters fashion turbulence? Relax and enjoy some entertainment with the Loubi Inflight Magazine introducing Christian Louboutin’s rock & swing inspired group featuring signature hardware and spike details, applied on loafers, slippers and boots. More food for thought? The Loubi Times newspaper is at your disposal. And don’t forget to read some of the latest gossip of the House in OMG Magazine!     One last drink before landing? Head to the bar area at the back of the plane where a fortune telling tarot station will introduce you to an exclusive print decorating iconic shoes while also serving as the inspiration for this season’s Caracaba bag.     To all passengers, we just landed at Loubiville Airport. On behalf of Loubi Airways and the entire crew, we wish you all a pleasant stay.     DIGITAL EXPERIENCE HERE: https://loubiairways.christianlouboutin.com

Coperni, la nuit. Fall & Winter 2021 Collection

Coperni, la nuit. Fall & Winter 2021 Collection

Fashion Week Coperni has always given priority to the sun, to daylight, to clear and distinct ideas. But with the sun cometh the night. She shows the world di erently – guiding us as always but also urging in a new time, a time to welcome in the unpredictable. Whether it’s mid- night or midday, the night is our window to see what is possible.       70x participants depart from their homes in 35x electric cars. Each vehicle will navigate the streets of Paris before arriving in the great hall of the Accord Arena in Bercy, the 12th arrondissement of the City of Light. The cars and their passengers will move into the darkness of the empty hall – enough space for over 20,000 in normal times. The choreo- graphy takes place after the vehicles have moved in to formation, becoming an integral part of the catwalk. The car radios turn on and announce the start of lming. Each indi- vidual set of headlights will light up as the rst model passes by, allowing participants to view the collection through their car window.     The Winter 21 collection is an exploration into the complexity and the mystery of night- time as we know it: sometimes pitch-black, sometimes dotted with stars, sometimes il- luminated by the moon. The night-time of celebration, of seduction and of plunging into the unknown is opposed to the nighttime of sleep, of resting our bodies and allowing dreams to take over our mind and our soul.     Frank and dynamic cuts on classic silhouettes let us glimpse the skin lying beneath. The shoulders are raised, the arms are slender - ready to enter in to the darkness. Sensuality arises from a play on zipped drapintg. Second skin mesh opposes the moving fringes. Bags in the shape of a padlock suggest something locked away in darkness. Maxima- lised forms lead us towards calmness, reconciliation and time for ourselves. Softness protects the body and light becomes therapy.     This night will be an experience.

INTRODUCING THE NINAMOUNAH Fall & Winter 2021 COLLECTION

INTRODUCING THE NINAMOUNAH Fall & Winter 2021 COLLECTION

Fashion Week Ninamounah launches today “Seduce Me”, their proposal for Fall Winter 2021. The collection, presented with an audiovisual piece in runway show format, marks a new chapter in the path of the Amsterdam based brand, debuting at Paris Fashion Week this season.     Continuing with the narrative line defined by creative director and designer Ninamounah Langestraat, Seduce Me receives inspiration from the natural world, taking biology as the starting point for the conception of the ideas that help shape the pieces in the collection. “Seduce Me” explores hypnotisingmating rituals, stimulating the viewers animalistic side and translating the aesthetics of these complex animal behaviours into garments a various and rich range of silhouettes, textures and movements.     Exaggerated cuts and oversized tailoring takes inspiration from the sexual mimicry of the animal kingdom. The defense mechanism of certain species protecting themselves from more dominant individuals is parallel to the human experience of wearing garments as armor.      Contrasting the suppleness of velvet and the discomfort of vinyl tells the story of seduction: both romantic and aggressive.  The velvety antlers of male deers is the perfect paradigm seen in nature. During mating season the velvet on their antlers shed and they use their antlers to fight for male dominance. The deception of sensuality and violence in nature,  as seen in snake trails (a sign of either mating or conflict), translates into the hypnotic, undulating seams in the recurring garments.      The urgency of red punctuates the neutral palette as a semiotic conversation between the aggressiveness and seduction it represents in both nature and the human-made world. The neutral palette is a reflection of the unarmed state and the innocence of living beings before they are ruthlessly hunted down.     This is the second season Ninamounah collaborates with artist Stef Van Looveren, with whom the brand has developed a revisited line of accessoriesstarring their already signature bags depicting human male and female gonads in a wide range of colours, from bubblegum pink to metallic gold.

Hermès presents the new Fall & Winter 2021 collection

Fashion Week Infused with radiant mystery, power, an aura, cavalières, if not Amazons, stride forth in the lines of this new collection. If asked, they might not even recall these last few months, preferring to remember more uncomplicated times. For some women, being stuck in a rut, remaining motionless, are purely abstract ideas, for they are all about movement. It is urgent now to live again, to venture forth into the unknown, to gain a new lease of life. It is a time of rebuilding: so much remains to be explored, beginning with womanhood, a concept that haschanged quite a lot these past few years. Time ies, which is surely a sign that we need to reinvent ourselves.     This collection is an expression of the desire to explore the sensuality of new mythologies. The checkered pattern works like a painting that gets right to the point, with a gesture as pure and simple as adorning the human form with rectangles. Clothes as suitable for nightlife as for everyday life; opposites no longeropposed; contradictions y out the window as classi cations disappearinto the play of fabrics and pleats. A clou Médor opens and closes a clasp; a suit is cut parka-style, ignoring the rules of tailoring. The padded anorak makes an appearance, and though there are pants, they are cycling pants.     In counterpoint, trim such as one nds on cashmere blankets.And long jackets, coats and ponchos with integrated scarves supplying the protection one needs to feel strong, without ever hindering movement. Something to wear while taking the present in stride.     How can we put on a fashion show in today’s world? When times are challenging, we must challenge our own habits. Let us feel free to connect with other cities, other cultures. Let us attempt to be creative together—albeit from a distance. Let us dare to do what we have always done with passion: initiate a dialogue with other art forms. Let us innovate; let us produce what can only be called a triptych. More than a fashion show: a living performance, in three acts. At the heart of this three-part performance is a socially distanced Paris fashion show at the Garde républicaine, broadcast live on various media. The “prologue” takes place not in Paris but in New York, at the Armory Show, where choreographer Madeline Hollander will start things off with a free interpretation of the movements gleaned from Nadège Vanhée-Cybulski’s collection. At the close of the Paris show it’ll be over to Shanghai, where dancers under the direction of choreographer Gu Jiani will conclude the triptych, injecting renewed energy and strength into the collection.     Breathing life into clothes by making them our own. Dancing a collection to infuse other bodies, other cities, with movement—even after the show is over. Might those three moments in different parts of the world conjure up a new woman? Who knows, so swift is the pace of life...     And nally, to preserve this utopian project (what could be more utopian than fashion?), we asked Sébastien Lifshitz—a genre-crossing lmmaker steeped in modern dance and fashion—to lm the last stages of the triptych’s conception.     From New York to Paris, from Paris to Shanghai, three different ways of breathing life into clothes through movement. Three singularly different approaches, creating a sequence. What more satisfying way, in 2021, to inhabit the world together?     Infused with radiant mystery, power, an aura, cavalières, if not Amazons, stride forth in the lines of this new collection.

ISABEL MARANT presents the new Fall & Winter 2021 collection

Fashion Week A vision of the past or a projection into the future? The Isabel Marant Fall-Winter 2021 collection translates this ambiguity into silhouettes, colors and prints.     The folk and libertarian spirit of the 60’s driven by Jimmy Hendrix or Janis Joplin meets the techno impulse of the Gabberscene, a subculture that took the nineties by storm. Psychedelic multicolor oral patterns are layered with an electric blue iridescent vinyl fabric, while Texan boots are worn with oversized sportswear-inspired pieces, adorned with colored yokes.     As a journey across genres and eras, this new collection celebrates craftsmanship and cultural heritage through theevocation of memories, narrated by guipure tops and dresses, shearling boleros and embellished belts. This contrastbetween raw materials and precious details gives the wardrobe its versatile character - from day to night, masculine andfeminine together at the same time.     This season, a video shot in the outskirts of Paris, along the brutalist and hypnotic volutes of an open-air building, servesas an introduction to the collection. The exalted soundtrack by Gabber Eleganza, a symbiotic combination of folk tones and techno rhythms, echoes within its concrete walls. An ode to the long-lost parties.     MODELS: Adut Akech, Mica Argañaraz, Loli Bahia, Malick Bodian, He Cong, Leon Dame, Anna Ewers, Freek Iven, Birgit Kos, Klara Kristin, Rebecca Leigh, Malika Louback, Xu Meen, Blésnya Minher, Quinn Mora, Lola Nicon, Miriam Sánchez, Rianne Van Rompaey A vision of the past or a projection into the future?

VERSACE PRESENTS THE FALL & WINTER 2021 COLLECTION

Fashion Week “I have realized that this is the future, the new way of communicating collections.  Models are like actors, they bring the designs to life, just like when a performer portrays a character. During the filming of this show I saw how important it is to give the models time to “feel” the clothes they wear on the runway. Despite living in a digital era of immediacy, taking this time is crucial to form a genuine connection. This is what the present and future look like to me.”  - Donatella Versace      CONTEMPORARY CODES   The iconic Greca motif is reinvented for Fall-Winter 2021 as a dynamic and immersive 3D maze that feels like you can step right into it. The new Versace La Greca code features the Greek Key along with the Versace logo in various sizes and color combinations. The geometric pattern has sharp angles, clean lines and a strong palette that represents power and self-confidence.     SMALL SILHOUETTES    In womenswear the silhouettes are reduced in volume with rounded shoulders, cinched waists and A-line skirts. The trousers are cropped and there’s a cleanness that lets La Greca do the talking. The new code features on modern daywear, signature metal mesh dresses, sensual eveningwear, bold sheepskin outerwear and is embroidered on denim. Harnesses are created that cross the chest like armor and add sharp detail through embellishment and contrasting shades.       INTIMATE LINES     Men’s cuts are slim and refined with a twist. The tailoring hugs the body with sensual intimacy. La Greca features in different ways from all-over jacquard suits sometimes mixed with lurex thread, to small rubber patches on the chest like soccer badges. The fabrics jolt from shiny vinyl to matte wool.      REBEL SPIRIT    FW21 also introduces a graffiti Medusa smiley that champions the brand’s sense of humor and rebellious character. Considered a symbol of celebration, freedom and dancefloor communities, it is framed by La Greca borders and appears on foulards, men’s outerwear and women’s shirts.      MODULAR BAGS    La Greca bags come with logo hardware and they can be customized with smaller clip-on accessories and extra pockets for a look that feels very personal to the wearer. Bold shades clash on smaller bags and mix-and-match shoulder straps. The 3D Greca also appears on oversized earrings, hair pins, jewelry and confident buckles.   “I have realized that this is the future, the new way of communicating collections.  Models are like actors, they bring the designs to life, just like when a performer portrays a character.
