Louis Vuitton Father's Day gifting

Men For Father’s Day, Louis Vuitton celebrates its eclectic Men’s collections. The Maison’s style codes are reinterpreted in a selection of ready-to-wear items, leather goods, shoes and accessories.     Leather goods: Leather goods celebrate the Maison’s iconic handbags with the Gaston Labels, Reverse Monogram Eclipse and Damier Graphite Utility capsule collections. Superior craftsmanship and functionality combine to satisfy all modern-day lifestyle needs. Whether it’s a messenger bag or a backpack, each bag is designed to carry the essentials of the modern, on-the-go man. Foldable, adjustable and practical, they can be easily slipped into a suitcase and worn in a variety of ways.     Accessories Selection: The accessories selection is a celebration of the iconic Monogram. Featured on classic pieces like the collection of calfskin belts, the Monogram delivers an iconic signature to the LV Ash and LV Catch Round sunglasses, while it can be worn on wide chains around the neck or on the wrist. This season, Louis Vuitton unveils a rainbow version which pays tribute to the signature colours of Virgil Abloh's collections.   Featured on classic pieces like the collection of calfskin belts, the Monogram delivers an iconic signature to the LV Ash and LV Catch Round sunglasses.   This season, Louis Vuitton unveils a rainbow version which pays tribute to the signature colours of Virgil Abloh's collections.     Ready-to-wear: Emblematic pieces created by Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton’s artistic director for menswear, illustrate the versatility of the Maison’s collections, like this reversible wool and silk coat in a classic cut featuring a Camo Monogram. For a more classic look, the Maison o ers items such as this heathered grey cashmere crew neck, available in several colours.     Shoes: The shoe collection pays tribute to the trainer, the new classic of men's wardrobes, with a model for any everyday occasion. A classic white pair with subtle grey leather trim bearing the Maison’s Monogram contrasts with the black Shiny Monogram Rivoli and Run Away Pulse models for an utterly chic yet casual look.     Watch Selection: The Tambour Horizon is a unique model of connected watch which perfectly encapsulates the Louis Vuitton spirit of travel, expertise, and creativity. The enhanced “My Travel” feature now syncs all relative travel information and gives access to the Maison’s City Guides. The new 24-hour ring around the watch face optimally completes the various contents of the “Agenda” feature. With its step counter, weather reports and air pollution indicator, the Tambour Horizon connected watch is a useful accessory that reflects one's personal style thanks to its numerous customisation options.     Unique Gifts Selection:   - Sports: Jump ropes, dumbbells, ping-pong paddles or golf clubs... Because sports play an increasingly key role in men’s lives, Louis Vuitton reinvents these lifestyle products, turning them into luxury objects. They will instantly win over the sportiest men, and motivate those who are struggling to get started!   - Games: Louis Vuitton adds colour to game-lovers’ lives with a pop line in contrasting materials, where Plexiglas meets leather and metal in a surprising encounter. Fun products such as dice and token holders are an ode to conviviality that re ects the Maison’s longstanding tradition of game-making.   - Collector Items: For aesthetes and lovers of beautiful objects, Louis Vuitton has designed a series of pieces steeped in both tradition and modernity. Two paperweights in the form of a sailing boat and a vintage car echo Gaston-Louis Vuitton's passion for childhood memories and the Maison's cherished Art of Travel.     Fragrance Selection: Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud has created ve exceptional compositions which capture breathtaking discoveries and evoke a masculine energy right on the skin’s surface. Fantasies of total freedom with Immensité, a wandering visit of a new world in Nouveau Monde, a long nighttime expedition through a stormy Orage, a surge of optimism through adventures Sur La Route, unforeseen meetings Au Hasard: each of these men's fragrances promises unparalleled intensity. Louis Vuitton continues its captivating sensory journey with the Cologne Perfumes Collection. This year, Sun Song, Cactus Garden and Afternoon Swim welcome California Dream. Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud holds onto the moment, captures the resonance of a sunset in this in nitely radiant fragrance. The ardent mandarin is consumed by fruity joyfulness, tempered by the diaphanous ambrette and its subtle warmth. To further this vivid dialogue, the Maison invited Californian artist Alex Israel to decorate the box and bottle of this new Cologne Perfume.

FILLING PIECES TAKES STEPS TOWARDS RESPONSIBILITY WITH RELEASE OF  THE COURT 683.

FILLING PIECES TAKES STEPS TOWARDS RESPONSIBILITY WITH RELEASE OF THE COURT 683.

Accessories Named after the additional production cost of €6,83, the Court 683 is the brand’s most responsible shoe to-date.   The ‘683’ is the first of a new conscious line of products aiming to pave the way for the entire FILLING PIECES collection to be more responsible. The campaign is shot by Woody Bos, featuring Tyvvani Ebuehi and Gogo Lupin.The imagery expresses the human need to move ever closer to the shapes created by nature. The playful interaction with our Court 683 aims to emulate organic forms, almost forgotten in the months of isolation. Inspiration comes from the simple beauty of the trees and wildflowers, something we might have taken for granted. Modelled on the Low Plain Court, key features of the 683 include the use of fully-traceable, Dutch organic leather hides, coloured using metal-free tanning. Traditional rubber soles are substituted for a sugarcane EVA equivalent, eliminating the use of petroleum from the production process.     “As a fashion brand, we are conscious that each decision we make has an impact on our environment and we need to do better. Whilst we don’t currently have access to a luxury leather alternative, the 683 is the most responsible shoe we can produce right now, with steps being taken to further develop responsible choices within our production and design process.”- Chris Alders, Head of Marketing at FP.     €6.83 is the total additional cost of FP’s responsible choices. Every aspect of the original Court has been examined and replaced by more sustainable alternatives. The organic hides are sourced through Trace your Leather Cooperative (TLC), traceable to the individual cow. The leather lining has been substituted for recycled PET mesh. Laces are organic cotton, coated in beeswax - eliminating the use of pesticides. Plastic-based insoles are replaced with recycled cork produced in Portugal, home to FP’s factories - where production emissions have been offset by investing in carbon-negative projects. A cattle-style tag with a QR code is attached to each pair and leads to a webpage dedicated to the decision-making for the 683, as well as detailing the ‘responsible’ steps put in place throughout the brand’s entire production cycle. 683 represents the commitment from FILLING PIECES to be more environmentally responsible at all levels of the company. There are plans to extend the 683 line to other signature silhouettes such as the Low Top and Low Mondo 2.0. These are identifiable by a recycled, royal blue nylon label. The Court 683 is available in four colourways from 16 June 2020, part of the first drop for AW20.     CREDITS : Photography : Woody Bos (@woodybos) Art Direction : Daniele Misso (@daniele.misso) Talents : Tyvanni Osaheni Ebuehi (@tyvvanni), Gregory Robert (@gogolupin) Styling : Anna Claassen (@annaclaassen) MUAH : David Koppelaar (@davidkoppelaar) Named after the additional production cost of €6,83, the Court 683 is the brand’s most responsible shoe to-date.   The ‘683’ is the first of a new conscious line of products aiming to pave the way for the entire FILLING PIECES collection to be more responsible. The campaign is shot by Woody Bos, featuring Tyvvani Ebuehi and Gogo Lupin.The imagery expresses the human need to move ever closer to the shapes created by nature.

For Fall & Winter 2020, Givenchy unveils Antigona soft bags for men

For Fall & Winter 2020, Givenchy unveils Antigona soft bags for men

Accessories For Fall-Winter 2020, the House of Givenchy has adapted its new Antigona Soft bag especially for the Givenchy man.     Named for the heroine of Greek mythology who inspired the original, iconic Antigona, the Antigona Soft first appeared in the Pre-Fall 2020 women’s lookbook. Revisited in a men’s version, the maxi style debuted on the Fall-Winter 2020 runway in Paris, as a natural extension of this season’s mood.     At a glance, the family resemblance is clear. Like the classic Antigona, the Antigona Soft is based on rigorous geometry and purity of line, transposed into a suppler construction. Inspired by Givenchy’s dual signature, the new men’s bag blends the subtle sensuality found in the women’s style now enhanced with more generous, masculine proportions.     A directional statement among Givenchy leather accessories for men, the Antigona Soft is sophisticated yet versatile. Gliding seamlessly from everyday use to weekender or extended getaways, it comes in a large size (in black or sand beige) and a maxi size; in woven black, white and red leather; with the Givenchy chains print on wool; or in timeless black calf leather. Sleek, practical features include a removable shoulder strap for extra versatility, two spacious zipped compartments, and a zipped inner pocket. Two outer handles with turn-lock hardware add to its refined allure.     The Antigona Soft maxi bag for men will debut in Givenchy boutiques on September, 2020. Retail prices: from 2,290 euros (large).

In conversation with Daan Baeten

Accessories Exclusive interview with the founder of NUBIKK, Daan Baeten.     What made you decide to start your footwear company back in 2012?    As a son from a family with three generations of leather and shoemaking experience, I rolled into the shoe business. Back in 2012, I felt the need to start my own business because I missed a comfortable, fashionable shoe at a fair price. With all the experience I’ve gained from my family in combination with my drive and passion to create things, I started NUBIKK, a shoe brand that believes fashion should go hand in hand with comfort.       What makes Nubikk unique and what is the purpose of creating the shoes?   At NUBIKK we create leather products, from the best Italian leathers, with lightweight soles throughout the entire collection to reach the best comfort. Because customers like the same lush feeling as experienced when wearing sportswear. Additionally, the same level of cushioned insoles is now also used in NUBIKK’s formal wear for women and men, like the high heeled boots and espadrilles. So the purpose of it all is to bring fashionable shoes, combined with comfort, to a wide audience.      How important do you think sustainability is becoming, and how do you incorporate it within your brand?   Sustainability is indeed a very important topic. At NUBIKK, every department is working very hard to look at the possibilities to leave the smallest footprint possible. For example, we care very much about the work environment of our team, in our factories and all suppliers and places where our materials come from. We deliver all our goods completely plastic-free, develop soles made of pure latex, use sugar cane as a material for lightweight soles, hence, the least amount of chemicals are used during the production of our materials. There is an entire section on our website that explains everything we do.      What made you expand your product line to accessories and t-shirts?   Our focus and expertise lie with shoes, but our passion lies with fashion in general. Hence, during the last few seasons, we are exploring other products as well such as handbags for women, accessories like phone cases, and lately t-shirts and sweaters. We had the idea to make a great fitting shirt from organic cotton. To show that shirts made of more sustainable material look and fit much better as compared to products with cheaper and polluting materials.  I am coming from a shoe family. That means my heart is with shoes and a different variety of shoes. We do not solely focus on sneakers but try to expand our horizon.     What can we look forward to from Nubikk to come in the future?   Currently, we are working on several square-toe shaped boots and we recently dropped boots with ‘see-through' glass heels in different colors, with a great fit and removable cushioned insoles. But we also see a shift in our product range moving slowly from sneakers to boots and derby shoes. We have made them all in a cool way. They will drop this winter.  2019 was a great year for us with international expansion and opening our very first flagship store in Amsterdam. For the winter collection of 2020, we have a lot of great new designs coming up and also a big collaboration. On which I can’t say too much but it’s coming soon.   NUBIKK.com Exclusive interview with the founder of NUBIKK, Daan Baeten.     What made you decide to start your footwear company back in 2012?    As a son from a family with three generations of leather and shoemaking experience, I rolled into the shoe business.

A trip around the Mediterranean with Chanel

A trip around the Mediterranean with Chanel

Fashion Cruise 2020/21 collection - ‘Balade en Méditerranée’ (A trip around the Mediterranean)   “Initially I had Capri in mind, where the show was supposed to take place, but didn’t happen in the end because of lockdown,” says Virginie Viard, “So we had to adapt: not only did we decide to use fabrics that we already had, but the collection, more generally, evolved towards a trip around the Mediterranean… The islands, the scent of the eucalyptus, the pink shades of the bougainvillea.” And a free, laid-back allure inspired by the legendary actresses of the 1960s when they would holiday on the Italian and the French Riviera.    This collection was conceived to travel light with “a wardrobe that can be carried in a little suitcase on wheels, a shopper and an embroidered handbag”, a few easy to wear, multipurpose items of clothing that all go together perfectly, and can even be transformed: long skirts become strapless dresses when pulled up, long jackets in black chiffon can be worn by day over a triangle bikini, or by night with an embroidered bandeau top and jeans, “and if worn over bare skin, it becomes a déshabillé.” The dresses in fine transparent lamé are coupled with jackets that can be untied and slipped over a pair of crêpe shorts, while wraparound dresses and skirts liberate movement. Bougainvillea pink illuminates suits in leather as supple as a second skin, and in tweed that’s been left unlined for more fluidity.      A collection of refined simplicity, to be discovered on chanel.com.    #CHANELCruise Cruise 2020/21 collection - ‘Balade en Méditerranée’ (A trip around the Mediterranean)   “Initially I had Capri in mind, where the show was supposed to take place, but didn’t happen in the end because of lockdown,” says Virginie Viard, “So we had to adapt: not only did we decide to use fabrics that we already had, but the collection, more generally, evolved towards a trip around the Mediterranean… The islands, the scent of the eucalyptus, the pink shades of the bougainvillea.” And a free, laid-back allure inspired by the legendary actresses of the 1960s when they would holiday on the Italian and the French Riviera.    This collection was conceived to travel light with “a wardrobe that can be carried in a little suitcase on wheels, a shopper and an embroidered handbag”, a few easy to wear, multipurpose items of clothing that all go together perfectly, and can even be transformed: long skirts become strapless dresses when pulled up, long jackets in black chiffon can be worn by day over a triangle bikini, or by night with an embroidered bandeau top and jeans, “and if worn over bare skin, it becomes a déshabillé.” The dresses in fine transparent lamé are coupled with jackets that can be untied and slipped over a pair of crêpe shorts, while wraparound dresses and skirts liberate movement.

With its key elements  fashion, lifestyle, art, design, architecture & technology, ə’kadəmē merges its core and visual identity:     With its 160m2 the space is a commixture of exactly that. The carefully selected collaborations with Bang & Olufsen, Vitra, Kvadrat and Flos ensures an exclusive and modular experience throughout the store. The space therefore acts as an exposition of ideas.   www.ekademe.com
