GUCCI ANNOUNCES THE OPENING OF ITS NEW AMSTERDAM STORE

Fashion Gucci is pleased to announce the opening of its new store in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The store spans over 506 square meters across three floors and houses a full array of Gucci’s products, from men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, to handbags, luggage, small leather goods, shoes, jewelry and watches, silks and eyewear.     With a look that invites customers to feel welcome and relaxed, the interior design is discreet. Soft elements like velvet chairs and leather settees, as well as vintage dark wood display furniture and the elegant wooden staircase, offset harder surfaces and industrial elements, such as rivets. Contemporary luxury is suggested not only by the employment of beautiful and idiosyncratic materials, but also through a determinedly spare use of space. In keeping with the elegant and contemporary eclecticism that characterises Gucci’s collections, the store sees the combination of traditional and modern, industrial and romantic. The concept effortlessly complements the product-offer from the House.     Contrasting merchandising elements represent different design codes of the House, and these combine to create curiosity, inviting customers to feel like they are constantly discovering new aspects of the store. Each Gucci boutique is therefore a “cabinet of curiosities”, created to delight and inspire.     The mood within the store is one of discretion, where understated drama is created by the surprising and unexpected combination of materials. Juxtaposition of this sort, where opposites forge a new connection, is repeated ubiquitously: technical, mechanical display contrast with the softness of the rich fabrics that adorn the rooms; wooden tables with velvet tops and the wood flooring in natural oak, hand-painted by Italian artisans, complement the sage-green, old rose and cipria pink velvet-upholstered boiserie. Throughout the store, one finds sumptuous seats, while vintage rugs are layered over each other for a textured effect. The result is a space that entices, surprises and feels personal to Gucci.     Store Name: Gucci Amsterdam Location: P.C.

Louis Vuitton Men’s Collection by Virgil Abloh Pre-Fall 2021

Louis Vuitton Men’s Collection by Virgil Abloh Pre-Fall 2021

Men Conformity: the sociological endeavour of a person or a community to blend in or integrate with a societal culture to which they ought, desire or need to belong. Often, a concept rooted in luxury and privilege.     Periods of progress are followed by consolidation: a new normality. For the Pre-Fall 2021 Men’s Collection, Louis Vuittoninvestigates the mundane dress codes of an establishment in evolution. Banal by virtue, it is a traditional sartorial wardrobe inherited by some and aspirational to others. In his ongoing transformation of elitist codes into symbols of inclusivity, Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh studies the luxury of normalcy – the state of being normal – and what conforming to it means in a post-2020 society. Underpinning old codes with new values, the collection portrays the comfort of a progressive conventionality inclusive to all: the mundane wardrobe re-appropriated for a new world order.   Back-to-work tailoring expressed in a boxy silhouette nods at a generational association with conformity. The conventional staple pieces of the men’s wardrobe are approached with riotous celebration: suits daubed in tie-dye galaxy monogram print, a caban restructured with an asymmetrical monogram leather panel, and a peacoat embossed with a techy Louis Vuitton logo along the sleeve. New takes on suits materialise with hooded or zipped jackets or in all-denim, while the decorative codes of eveningwear are evoked through the mid-layer. In casualwear, the bastions of the conventional wardrobe – the blouson, the cardigan, the shirt – are conveyed in a Damier salt print, fading and distorting the classic motif.   “Separate fashion from ction” and “Don’t let your day job de ne you” – archive quotes from the Vocabulary according to Virgil Ablohpublished seasonally as part of his Louis Vuitton practice – adorn garments throughout the collection. They appear as intarsia on a sweater, debossed on a leather blouson, and in outerwear on a unique fabric where the words become visible when the garment comes in contact with rain. Skater hats and caps – in leather, python or denim – and scarves are interpreted in the galaxy and Damier salt prints. In jewellery, the signature chain link pieces magnify in size and expand with opal nishes alongside existing metal textures. Next to Cuban chains, the collection introduces Around the World necklaces and bracelets with globe and trunk pendants.   Shoes twist the familiar in a clog derby in black leather, and buckled mules in black or monogram leather. The signatureLouis Vuitton sneaker appears in a yellow and green contrast style. Bags interpret the Damier salt print on the classic coated canvas in indigo with black leather trims, and in a stone-coloured version with tonal trimming. The collection introduces a new sling bag shape with signature metal rivets and leather corners, while a new messenger bag materialises in Macassar monogram with a utilitarian rubber base forged in pop-coloured LV letters. Finally, a series of leather bags in tonal black, animating some of the house’s most classic shapes.     Conformity: the sociological endeavour of a person or a community to blend in or integrate with a societal culture to which they ought, desire or need to belong.

Acne Studios presents its Women’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection

Fashion Week Voluminous yet shaped silhouettes, soft and worn fabrics, contrasting moments of sweetness and elegant refinement; this collection is a visual evolution moving from a dreamscape into an awakened reality.   “I was thinking about what happens when we emerge from isolation, the same but also somehow different. This collection is a dreamscape that begins with soft pastel colours, before awakening into monochromatic clarity, which is an ode to the white or black clothes worn for rituals in our life cycle, like weddings and funerals.” says Jonny Johansson, creative director of Acne Studios.     Oversized wrap coats in floral printed wool are like dressing gowns seen out of the house, the oversized buckle heightening the volume play. Knits have the effect of a long-loved teddy bear, the hems left ragged and cardigan buttonings purposefully off-kilter. Pyjamas have been hand- bleached and overdyed, appearing well-worn. Leather trenches and jackets have brushed seams, creating a denim-like aesthetic; an ode to the brand’s roots. Knits, robes and dresses are key, with a focus on wrapping, draping and ruching. Colours travel from floral pastels and pale shades through neutrals, before arriving at monochromatic blacks and whites.     Draping is a reoccurring design feature. A long-sleeved linen dress has panels of rib jersey running down both sides, from cuff to hem. Some garments are voluminous with sudden cinching at the waist. Meanwhile, another linen dress hugs the body more tightly with fabric gaps to reveal the undergarment. The body is mostly covered, but there are moments of emergence, which is evidence of the experimental draping throughout the collection. Oversized and open- structure cable knits show the skin beneath, in either tops or skirts, followed by monochromatic looks which mirror each other: a long-sleeve white dress in a fine and supple leather, buttoned from rollneck to hem with open extended cuffs; a black sleeveless gown in viscose with a hidden internal construction. Silk jackets in black or white are lightly padded and effortlessly oversized.     Ceramic animals by artist, Apollinaria Broche are carried like bags, as if an imaginary friend from childhood. Miniature versions appear attached to chokers or earrings. Shearling hats cocoon the head, while chunky handknitted mittens add to the homespun feeling. Collapsible suede bags are in geometric shapes, such as boxes and flat circles. There’s also a structured handbag which is distorted into a new warped shape. Clog boots are cut from cowhide, while leather boots have seams on the outside, both thigh-high and ankle. Leather pumps have a high stiletto heel, while strappy sandals are worn over thick socks for full comfort.     The Women’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection will be available in all Acne Studios stores and on acnestudios.com.

DSQUARED2 PRESENTS THE NEW COLLECTION FOR FALL & WINTER

Fashion Week The new collection includes a collaboration with Patrick Cox, the shoe designer behind the iconic Wannabe loafer and a teenage friend of Dean and Dan Caten.     Restyling the Wannabe’s famed square-toe form, first launched in the 90s, the Wanna-D2 comes in different styles: a heeled loafer with a mini platform, the same style in a high boot and thigh boot, and a lower ankle boot version with a chunky heel and a front strap with D hardware.   Bodysuits and dresses embroidered with poetry are paired with sporty details, color-blocked nylon wide legged pants with elasticated ankles and a long tailored jacket, or loose denim pants with paint splatters in a camouflage pattern.

CHANEL PRESENTS THE SPRING & SUMMER 2021 READY-TO-WEAR CAMPAIGN

Fashion A very special emotion arises when CHANEL welcomes a long-time friend. Charlotte Casiraghi, the new CHANEL ambassador and spokesperson, illuminates the campaign for the Spring-Summer 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection, shot in the legendary principality of Monaco by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.      “The story around Charlotte’s life in Monaco started with the cinematic idea of day for night”, explain the Dutch photography duo. “Staging the set ups in similar locations both at night and during the day was the starting point for this series in which Charlotte fluctuates between dream and reality. Is she real, we wonder, or is she an apparition wandering in a place she might not fully belong to?” An ode to the seventh art where enchantment competes with fascination. “Charlotte has a mysterious quality, a push-pull duality that emphasizes our play on the merging of reality and dream,” they add.      Day and night, in black and white or in colour, by a swimming pool or in the privacy of a bedroom, Charlotte Casiraghi embodies, in this mythical Monaco, a specific idea of cinema that inspired Virginie Viard for the collection.      Certain words come to mind when contemplating these silhouettes, like the flashbulbs on a red carpet. Starting with glamour: a long, sleeveless black tweed gilet decorated with bows worn over flowing trousers, a suit in iridescent black tweed with a satin collar and cuffs, a chiffon ensemble embroidered with sequins, a leather jacket and skirt, a black strapless dress in tweed and chiffon. Then sophistication: a long dress in pleated chiffon printed with the letters "CHANEL", a pink and navy blue dress belted like a cardigan, an ecru dress in cotton tweed emphasised with braid, a long dress in crêpe de Chine printed with small flowers. Finally, joy and colour: a red cashmere embroidered sweater over a pair of capri pants, a striped tweed dress adorned with jewelled buttons.      The CHANEL Spring-Summer 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection will be in boutiques from March 2nd 2021.      #CHANELSpringSummer A very special emotion arises when CHANEL welcomes a long-time friend.

Finally, joy and colour: a red cashmere embroidered sweater over a pair of capri pants, a striped tweed dress adorned with jewelled buttons.      The CHANEL Spring-Summer 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection will be in boutiques from March 2nd 2021.      #CHANELSpringSummer

BURBERRY REVEALS ITS SPRING/SUMMER 2021 CAMPAIGN

Fashion ‘For the Spring/Summer 2021 show, I wanted to create this incredible experience bringing together fashion, art, music, technology, live performance and to then explore the dialogue they have with each other. I have always been inspired by the concept of duality, so it was amazing to see the unique energy and dynamic tension that was found in the fusion of all these worlds. This campaign is all about continuing that examination of different perspectives, contrasting the rawness of the internal environment with the ever-blooming nature of the outdoors.’ Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer     Today, Burberry reveals its Spring/Summer 2021 campaign, bringing together contrasting worlds in an exploration of differingperspectives and viewpoints.     Photographed by Juergen Teller, the campaign presents a dichotomy between images: two different realms, indoors and outdoors, nature and fashion. Images captured within the scenography of the Spring/Summer 2021 show, with models immersed in nature, are juxtaposed with classical raw studio shots. Through these opposing lenses, the collection is presented from different viewpoints, transforming with the environment around them. Playing upon the overarching theme of the collection, rooted in a modern love story between a mermaid and a shark, the Spring/Summer 2021 campaign continues to expand on one of Burberry’s signature house codes: duality – constantly exploring the fusion of romanticism with innovation, form with function and past with future.     The Spring/Summer 2021 collection remasters the iconic emblems and hallmarks of the luxury fashion house – its character, nature and unique British DNA – with a modern free energy. A spirit of rebellion re-energising tradition. Natural canvas, denim and industrial, rubberised fabrications combine with delicate chiffon and crystal embroideries – streetwear meets classic.     Alongside Juergen Teller, Riccardo gathered a team of iconic talent including stylist Katy England, Burberry Global Beauty Director Isamaya Ffrench and hair stylist Gary Gill. The cast includes models He Cong, Tyler Forbes, Khali Ghani, Kayako Higuchi, Tashi Kwaiye, Reece Nelson, Yiorgos Paraskevas, Aylah Peterson, Claus Royo, Liv Walter, Anok Yai. ‘For the Spring/Summer 2021 show, I wanted to create this incredible experience bringing together fashion, art, music, technology, live performance and to then explore the dialogue they have with each other.

Givenchy presents the CUT-OUT bag

Accessories Givenchy presents the Cut-Out, a forward-looking unisex handbag that distills the essence of Creative Director Matthew M. Williams’ vision for the House.     Distinctive for its sculptural, graphic lines, the Cut-Out nods to the Givenchy archives and ethos, notably the House’s V-shaped signature, here deftly deconstructed and counterbalanced by a squared base and a supple shoulder strap with striking silver embellishments. Like the latest reinterpretation of the Antigona, the Cut-Out is made of sophisticated, Box-finish leather. Various treatments span discreet matte or embossed textures evoking exotic scales with matte, metallic or vintage croc-effect finishes. Its modern allure is defined by the designer’s flair for innovative hardware signatures, as evidenced by the bold, cubic 4G chain, and the precedence of craft-driven flourishes, for example on a black leather version that is fully embellished with small silver eyelets that have been placed by hand. The Cut-Out is available in Small with or without the sinuous 4G chain, and in an ample Large size that makes a distinctive, fashion-forward statement. Colors include classic beige, tan or black, as well as directional shades of baby pink, purple and red. Prices: from 990€ to 1,390€ for the small style; 1,990€ for the large.     The Cut-Out will drop starting on February 26th, 2021, in Givenchy stores worldwide and on givenchy.com.

Salvatore Ferragamo presents the new collection for Fall & Winter

Salvatore Ferragamo presents the new collection for Fall & Winter

Fashion Week Salvatore Ferragamo leaps forward to shape a new now. Inspired by the limitless conceptual freedom of science fiction and the house’s heritage of technical innovation, creative director Paul Andrew projects into the future to craft an alternative vision for the present. Fueled by optimism and hope, this is a bright and youthful collection that disrupts and upgrades 21st century tropes of uniform - business, military, evening, sporting – discarding all that is old-fashioned. This collection is driven by sensitivity for the health of our environment.     Paul Andrew says: “In fashion, the past exerts a gravity - we are always drawn to it. For this season I wanted to invert that physics. The objective was to engineer a collection that sees the present through a prism of the future – unleashing a multitude of fresh perspectives. Pre-millennial sci-fi classics Gattaca, Until The End Of The World, and The Matrixwere all cinematic influences - past imaginings of the future that have shaped today. For this ‘Future Positive’ collection I imagined the standard contours of today’s uniforms as fossilised remnants of a long-forgotten past, freed of all associations of class, colour or creed. This collection proposes new uniforms for a utopian future in which diversity and positivity combine to transform our world for the better. As Salvatore Ferragamo once said of his own work, this collection is dedicated ‘to all those who must walk’ – at a time when we must be united in our determination to reimagine, rebuild, progress.”      Ready-to-wear sees tailoring templates blended and sequenced with codes drawn from militaria, moto, athletics, scuba and beyond. For both women and men, shirting, mohair knits, footwear and accessories are connected and complementary, presented in monochrome against bursts of colour. Seasonal advances include capes, coats and parkas in heat-processed leathers and wools, fine gauge technical knitwear, knit bodysuits and dresses patterned in an abstract future camouflage. Utility parkas and casual tailoring, dresses and outerwear strafed with irregular bursts of fringed yarn. A constellation of draped jersey dresses and statements in chainmail star and shine throughout the lineup.     Key footwear include space-biker boots, scuba sock sneakers, clogs in rubberised nappa, and a sleek reinterpretation of Ferragamo’s iconic F-heel adorned with rhinestones and a galvanised finish.  Key bags include the Nano-Trifolio in rubberised nappa and a revolumed, deconstructed Studio bag. A travel bag for men comes in a futuristic Gancini-embossed leather and features a pocketed utility strap.     A dress realized in polyester made from post-consumer recycled materials. Footwear soles include wood from certified responsibly managed forestry, recycled pre-consumer TPU rubber and polyurethane and metal-free leather tanned with plant-based materials and through a certified lower environmental impact production process. Selected accessories are made from upcycled pre-consumer offcuts, addressing material waste and avoiding virgin material production, and others are made from certified recycled pre and post-consumer wool and cashmere. Part of leather have been made with a chrome-free or metal-free tanning process. Sewing threads for part of footwear and leather goods are made from 100% post-consumer certified recycled PET.     ferragamo.com Salvatore Ferragamo leaps forward to shape a new now.
