ETRO UNVEILS THE NEW SPRING SUMMER 2021 ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN

Fashion Joy is an immediate, sudden feeling. It draws a smile on the face; it brings a light to the eyes, and energizes the body. It oozes energy, momentum, and owns distinctive gestures. It knows no time and no place. Models Anna Ewers, Parker Van Noord, Alessio Pozzi and Grace Musase are portrayed by David Sims in the dazzling non-place of a white background in the new ETRO campaign. These are immediate and vitaminic images, which depict a study in the making of joy and vitality: a spark in the eye, the whiteness of teeth or the wind in the hair are enough to convey the message, getting straight to the point. It is the same joy that runs through the collection, a further exploration of ETRO's family lexicon. The pictures intentionally wink at the way we were to define the way we are. If the prints, but also the accessories, are an archive anthology, with imaginative names such as Bandiere da Parata, I fiori del Cielo or L’Albero delle Meraviglie, the images are an obvious homage to a perhaps more carefree decade. Not for ETRO. What remains, in order to evolve, is in fact the joyous urge to mix signs and meanings, the vital freedom in merging worlds, the immediacy of fashion as a pure expression of joy. Yesterday and today.     Photographer: David SimsStylist: Géraldine SaglioTalents: Anna Ewers, Grace Musase, Alessio Pozzi, Parker Van NoordCreative Director: Macs IottiCasting Director: Piegiorgio Del MoroMake Up Artist: Lucia PieroniHair Stylist: Paul Hanlon   Joy is an immediate, sudden feeling.

Samsøe Samsøe for Fall & Winter 2021

Fashion Week ’Stillness’ is the name of Samsøe Samsøe’s AW21 collection. It’s about aspects of being grounded, seeking stillness in a world where it might be hard tond the calm places that make us into who we are. It is also a re ection of the inspiration trip that thebrand’s design team took this year.     ”This time around, the design team and I took an inspiration trip within the Danish borders, and we ended up in a summer house, spending some time together - growing stronger bonds - and building the collection around the concept of ‘Stillness’. The serene moments of ‘just... being’ is a huge part of this collection”, says Gitte Wetter, Head of Design.     In the Womenswear collection, there is a certain nod towards the Victorian era, with heavy lace dresses in soft, romantic shapes, contrasting with suede and leather, giving the collection a more masculine expression. Other shapes draw inspiration from the late 70’s, mixed with today’s more clean silhouettes.There is a playo between formal and informal, givinga perfect balance of the modern woman’s look and feel.     This season, Menswear references the 70’s with slightly more exaggerated collars, but also the 90’s through oversized, checked shirts - now reworked in more contemporary qualities - which add an extra layer to the always tactile collection. Another strong focus is the relaxed shapes as if playing dress up at home. Soft fabrics, and loosely constructed blazers and jackets give a more laid back feeling this season with wider shapes in both pants and shirts adding to the luxurious and warm feeling.     Hues of sunny yellow, dry orange, brick red, washedout brown and hints of green re ect the draw ofnature and the elements that might be around us. An overall expression that uses long lasting qualities and shapes ensures a cohesive approach for both the Men’s and Women’s collections, as sustainability is always in focus. The result is that the AW21 collection is 75,5% more sustainable, than previous collections. A part of the brands initiative is to be 100% more sustainable by year 2024.     Whether or not it is has a mental or global aspect, the collection is about the state of ’Stillness’. The times we are facing in the world we live in are highlightedand showcased in this collection. Di erent minds, di erent thoughts, di erent possibilities all make us do things di erently and the result is a totally personalinterpretation of what it is, to explore stillness. ’Stillness’ is the name of Samsøe Samsøe’s AW21 collection.

Rains presents digital runway show ANTICIPATE

Fashion Week The ANTICIPATE collection offers a conversation around the expectancy of the next, creating a collection rooted in a prowess for the unkown.     Form and function equalize into a presentation of modern utility, one that need not make unnecessary compromises. Utilitarian tailoring built from heavy PU-coated twill is contrasted to crisp fabrics in parachute-like silhouettes. Voluminous puffer ensembles create security shells, encompassing the wearers like an armor to outside elements. Together, the themes offer a sense of hope in comradery, and a collective fight for the future.        "This season, it was inevitable to take in current world affairs and build a collection that offers a confident contribution to the dialogue. We wanted to build pieces that made people feel strong, collaborative and present. It was through bold silhouettes in a uniform color palette that achieved a sense of certainty in comradery," says Tanne Winter        Shades of a grey armada are presented as a central color palette, only to be interrupted by holographic showpieces and an icy blue for a glimmer of light amongst the collection.     For AW21, Rains references sci-fi storylines, offering a cinematic introduction to the latest runway collection offered up by the outdoor lifestyle brand.     Exploring the act of expectancy-the visceral response to before and after - 30 looks marched their way to the top of the precarious platform, to be met by a water orb hovering in the cradle of open air. Juxtaposed light and dark envelop the collection, offering a mysterious setting to the otherworldly encounter.   The ANTICIPATE collection offers a conversation around the expectancy of the next, creating a collection rooted in a prowess for the unkown.     Form and function equalize into a presentation of modern utility, one that need not make unnecessary compromises.

Vans and Opening Ceremony Launch First Global Footwear, Apparel and Accessories Collection

Accessories Since 2014, Vans and Opening Ceremony have forged a partnership rooted in celebrating creative expression and collaboration. This February, Vans and Opening Ceremony reunite to debut the first global collection of footwear, apparel and accessories released by the two iconic brands. Launching on February 19, the extensive collection will be made available on Vans.eu, Vans retail locations and at select wholesale partners worldwide.      Established in 2002, Opening Ceremony emerged as a creative, multi-brand retailer motivated by principles of exploration and friendship, and has since celebrated many unique and diverse perspectives of people and countries around the world. Opening Ceremony founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, both of whom are renowned designers in their own right, have amplified voices and pushed boundaries that often reach far beyond the fashion world. At the forefront of fashion for decades, Carol and Humberto continue to celebrate their longstanding partnership with Vans, this time on a global scale.     "Vans has been a long-time creative partner of ours, and we're so excited to collaborate on their iconic print this season,” says Opening Ceremony Creative Director Humberto Leon. “For this new capsule collection, Carol and I are inspired to reinvent the checkerboard, taking a new graphic approach to Vans' classic pattern."     Inspired by Vans’ iconic checkerboard print, Opening Ceremony founders reinvent the pattern with abstract snake and leopard patterns across apparel and footwear. Using Vans’ original deck shoe, the Authentic as their canvas, Opening Ceremony have created an all-over repeat pattern that highlights the positive and negative space – finding harmony between the motifs of the snake and leopard across the uppers and sole of each shoe.       The repeat leopard pattern is featured on an assortment of apparel, including a track suit-inspired jacket that includes a front zipper closure, toggle fasteners and a hidden hood. The Vans x OC leopard pant boasts a relaxed fit with welt pockets and a zipper flap. The leopard assortment is complemented by a leopard printed tote that is filled with soft padding, emblazoned with a novelty rubber Vans x OC patch.      A second delivery of footwear takes an elevated approach using monochromatic uppers in orchid and baja blue. The Authentic QLT brings two of-the-moment colorways to Vans’ maiden silhouette, with an all-over color, quilted vamp and lateral stitching. Each shoe is finished with an Opening Ceremony woven patch on the heel.      The Vans x Opening Ceremony collection will be available worldwide at Vans.com, Vans retail locations and at select wholesale partners on February 19.

Gucci presents Gucci Love, Love & Love by Brad Elterman and a special line for Saint Valentine’s Day

Fashion Cupid, the god of love, is a mischievous imp, and there is mischief and wit in the lens of Los Angeles-based rock photographer Brad Elterman, who can genuinely lay claim to being one of the greatest documenters of the music scene. Armed with his camera and flash, Elterman managed to infiltrate the world of rock ‘n’ roll in the ‘70s as a teenager, and his candid work brings us an insight into a very special moment and the lives and characters of some equally special and talented people. Elterman’s subjects read like a rock ‘n’ rollcall of prime movers, and his raw, spontaneous images give us a window into a more innocent, less self-conscious age.     Since 2014, Elterman, still taking pictures, has been producing a limited edition publication called Fanzine that showcases his work, a collector's gem. Gucci’s Creative Director Alessandro Michele, who is a fan of the low-tech zine format, chose to partner with Elterman to make one together to celebrate Saint Valentine’s Day.      For Gucci Love, Love & Love zine, Elterman has captured images of love in all its forms in his hometown of Los Angeles. Through his joyful, positive, light-hearted rock ‘n’ roll lens, we are introduced to a group of eclectic characters celebrating the diversity of love through playful poses and interaction with one another.     The photos also give a powerful glimpse on Michele’s views on Love and beauty, and are a showcase for Gucci’s product line celebrating Saint Valentine’s Day, where a striking new House Heart symbol is the distinctive feature. The Gucci Heart, which often has the 3D appearance of a child’s toy, is applied to a Romantic line of jewelry, as well as to leather and silk pieces. Also prominent in the publication are Gucci Beauty collections — from Gucci Guilty Love Edition duo of fragrances, to a selection of lipsticks and face and eye make-up products — and handbags from Gucci’s Beloved lines: Dionysus, GG Marmont, Jackie 1961 and Gucci Horsebit 1955.     Elterman’s newly commissioned pictures for Gucci, infused with the whimsical spirit of the House, are paired with other recent work of his as well as some complementary images from his extensive archive.     The zine is available online at https://lovelovelove.gucci.com/     For the enthusiasts of Gucci and Brad Elterman, a limited edition print version will be available at Gucci Garden bookstore in Florence and at Gucci Wooster in NYC from February 11th, in time for Saint Valentine’s Day.     #GucciLoveLoveLove Cupid, the god of love, is a mischievous imp, and there is mischief and wit in the lens of Los Angeles-based rock photographer Brad Elterman, who can genuinely lay claim to being one of the greatest documenters of the music scene.

Through his joyful, positive, light-hearted rock ‘n’ roll lens, we are introduced to a group of eclectic characters celebrating the diversity of love through playful poses and interaction with one another.     The photos also give a powerful glimpse on Michele’s views on Love and beauty, and are a showcase for Gucci’s product line celebrating Saint Valentine’s Day, where a striking new House Heart symbol is the distinctive feature. The Gucci Heart, which often has the 3D appearance of a child’s toy, is applied to a Romantic line of jewelry, as well as to leather and silk pieces. Also prominent in the publication are Gucci Beauty collections — from Gucci Guilty Love Edition duo of fragrances, to a selection of lipsticks and face and eye make-up products — and handbags from Gucci’s Beloved lines: Dionysus, GG Marmont, Jackie 1961 and Gucci Horsebit 1955.     Elterman’s newly commissioned pictures for Gucci, infused with the whimsical spirit of the House, are paired with other recent work of his as well as some complementary images from his extensive archive.     The zine is available online at https://lovelovelove.gucci.com/     For the enthusiasts of Gucci and Brad Elterman, a limited edition print version will be available at Gucci Garden bookstore in Florence and at Gucci Wooster in NYC from February 11th, in time for Saint Valentine’s Day.     #GucciLoveLoveLove

GIVENCHY UNVEILS SPRING-SUMMER 2021 CAMPAIGN BY MATTHEW M. WILLIAMS

Fashion In his first global advertising campaign, the Creative Director reveals his vision with help from an all-star lineup of likeminded artists. Givenchy is pleased to unveil the first images from its Spring-Summer 2021 global advertising campaign, produced under the supervision of Creative Director Matthew M. Williams.     To illustrate his vision, the designer called on close friends in his tight-knit community of artists. Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Playboi Carti and the supermodels Anok Yai and Liam Powers were each invited to put their own stamp on key pieces, the better to highlight the importance of cultivating a powerful personal style.     “To me, fashion expresses a point of view where formality and informality, construction and comfort co-exist. My ethos is about the luxury of infusing clothes with your own personality, not being worn by them,” said Matthew M. Williams. “In each of these portraits, a strong character wears a look that reflects who they are: they’re the ones who bring the clothes to life.”         Models wear looks from Matthew M. Williams’ Spring-Summer 2021 collection that debuted last October: Anok Yai appears in a crinkled black leather jacket and trousers that pop against an acid green background, while Playboi Carti styled himself in a black leather bomber slipped off his shoulder to reveal a couple of tattoos, or in a white tank with pink denim trousers and the new Antigona crossbody bag. Kendall Jenner embodies both the feminine and masculine side of the Givenchy woman, posing either in a body-skimming russet ensemble with a thick G-chain choker and a small gold Antigona handbag, or in a sharply tailored, black overcoat and trousers with the versatile new Cut- Out bag. With feline grace, Bella Hadid crouches in profile against a sage green background; the nonchalant Marshmallow slide creates a counterpoint to the more formal long, pistachio dress with a fresh take on the ‘Jour’ open back and embellished with Matthew M. Williams’ signature hardware. The freshly re-stylized 4G emblem also appears like a hallmark in the ad’s graphic layout, floating separately from the Givenchy signature.     Givenchy’s debut campaign by Matthew M. Williams will break in social media platforms on January 28th, feature in the March issues of major international magazines and on outdoor advertising worldwide starting in February.
