Patrizia Pepe's new season's essentials

Fashion Patrizia Pepe turns the spotlight on garments and flagship accessories for Autumn/Winter, bringing a new exclusive combo to the centre of the stage: Coats + Boots.    A city serves as a dynamic and multi-faceted background, framed by modern architecture and historic buildings, where the Patrizia Pepe woman becomes the protagonist of a versatile and unconventional style, combining the season's iconic outerwear with different models of biker & combat boots.   Essential wardrobe elements, coats and trenches for the cold months reinterpret masculine codes with a contemporary twist, transforming comfortable and protective fabrics into highly recognisable silhouettes that reflect the very essence of the brand, along with its feminine and aware aesthetic.    Minimal, clean-cut lines of single-breasted coats discover the warmth of wool cloth and bouclé wool in tenuous nuances, whereas more structured garments, like the trench and military coats, play with dark tonalities, alternating technical chalkstripe fabric with faux leather blends.   The glam-rock spirit of Patrizia Pepe resounds in the sparkle of finishes and metal applications: gold buttons, silver eyelets and Fly buckles reflect the free and irreverent spirit of a Gentle Rebel who lives the metropolis by following the path of elegance in movement.   The distinctive twist of each look arises from the matching of outerwear with new city boots featuring a bold and assertive design, made of soft calf leather and developed in different models like the biker, the combat and Beatles boot as well as the platform ankle boot. High impact details stand out on decisive profiles, such as lug soles, Fly decorations impressed on rubber, fluorescent accents and metal finishings that once more emphasize the allure and attitude of Patrizia Pepe's new classic contemporary essence.     Patrizia Pepe turns the spotlight on garments and flagship accessories for Autumn/Winter, bringing a new exclusive combo to the centre of the stage: Coats + Boots.    A city serves as a dynamic and multi-faceted background, framed by modern architecture and historic buildings, where the Patrizia Pepe woman becomes the protagonist of a versatile and unconventional style, combining the season's iconic outerwear with different models of biker & combat boots.   Essential wardrobe elements, coats and trenches for the cold months reinterpret masculine codes with a contemporary twist, transforming comfortable and protective fabrics into highly recognisable silhouettes that reflect the very essence of the brand, along with its feminine and aware aesthetic.    Minimal, clean-cut lines of single-breasted coats discover the warmth of wool cloth and bouclé wool in tenuous nuances, whereas more structured garments, like the trench and military coats, play with dark tonalities, alternating technical chalkstripe fabric with faux leather blends.   The glam-rock spirit of Patrizia Pepe resounds in the sparkle of finishes and metal applications: gold buttons, silver eyelets and Fly buckles reflect the free and irreverent spirit of a Gentle Rebel who lives the metropolis by following the path of elegance in movement.   The distinctive twist of each look arises from the matching of outerwear with new city boots featuring a bold and assertive design, made of soft calf leather and developed in different models like the biker, the combat and Beatles boot as well as the platform ankle boot.

Vans and MoMA Debut Second Installment of Footwear and Apparel Featuring Works of Art by Edvard Munch, Jackson Pollock, Lybov Popova and Faith Ringgold

Accessories Following the September debut collaboration, Vans, the original action sports brand, and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) are proud to launch a second installment of footwear and apparel. The latest iteration of the Vans and MoMA collaboration takes inspiration from impactful works of art by artists Edvard Munch, Jackson Pollock, Lybov Popova and Faith Ringgold. A diverse selection of work by these artists has been thoughtfully translated onto Vans Classic Footwear and apparel styles that will be available to shop worldwide on November 11.   “Our collaboration with MoMA is a true partnership that involved working together to select both the works and footwear to ensure an authentic connection between the art and the canvas footwear models we chose,” said Angie Dita, Vans Head of Global Footwear Design for Lifestyle Footwear. “Faith Ringgold worked closely with both the Vans design and MoMA teams to story tell through the details, bringing in quilted borders to contextualize her work atop Vans.”      Edvard Munch, whose best-known work, ‘The Scream 1895’, captures the “infinite scream of nature” and angst. A print version of this work has been carefully captured on each of the canvas panels of the Vans Era in a repeat pattern that can also be found on the Old Skool backpack, short sleeve tee and pullover hoodie.    ackson Pollock was a pioneer of action painting, flinging and pouring ropes of paint onto his surfaces in a decidedly physical way. Pollock’s ‘One: Number 31, 1950’ has transformed the Vans Authentic with an all-over application atop the canvas and across the sidewalls and is complimented by a digitally printed short sleeve button-down and camper style hat.    Popova approached painting as an act of “construction” using color, line and shape to create dimensional work that expressed movement and dynamism. For the Vans MoMA collaboration, Popova’s ‘Untitled, 1917’ has been applied to the Vans Sk8-Hi using each medial and lateral side to translate her avant-garde vision across the hi-top model which is found on complimenting fleece and ringer tee options.    Faith Ringgold is an acclaimed painter, writer, sculptor, performance artist, educator and activist whose body of work highlights her experiences with racism and social injustice. Vans and MoMA. Curators worked closely with Ringgold to uplift her feminist poster art including ‘Woman Free Yourself 1971’ which brings bold type to the left side of the Vans Era while ‘Freedom Woman Now 1971’ poster art has been applied to the right side to form the affirmative demands that were called during the arrest of Angela Davis. Ringgold’s powerful words can be found on a reversible bucket hat and long sleeve tee. A second footwear style, the Classic Slip-On is inspired by Ringgold’s first series of abstract paintings, ‘The Windows of the Wedding’ which was made in the 1970’s. Inscribed on the sidewall is a quote. From Ringgold, printed in her handwriting, that states “My mother said I’d have to work twice as hard to go half as far.”   Vans and MoMA are proud to come together to instill creative expression and uplift art education through special product this fall and holiday. The second installment of the Vans and MoMA collaboration will be available globally on November 11 on Vans.euat Vans retail, MoMA Design Store locations, store.moma.org, and select retail locations where Vans are sold.

Elhanati is launching a new collection, X Man at MYTHERESA.com this November

Jewelry For the first time, Elhanati launches new collection, X Man at MYTHERESA.com this November. X is handcrafted in 24K Gold-coated Sterling Silver in the Copenhagen atelier and is coated 3 times for a long life. Three malachite pieces will be available exclusively at mytheresa.com   Elhanati MAN X, draws on strong parallels between the Scandi minimalistic style and Elhanati’s Middle Eastern mystical universe. Featuring symbols from Elhanati’s previous collections, the sleek chains add character and feature a strong, powerful yet minimalistic expression for easy-to-wear men’s jewellery.     About Orit Elhanati, designer: I have been creating jewellery for men since I started in 2011. I have never had the need to do  men’s as I have been working from a unisex approach, we have always seen men ‘stealing’ their girlfriends and wives jewellery and vice versa. After much demand we launched our new jewellery men’s collection last year, and it was natural for me to continue X for men on a larger canvas. I used my signature symbols such as the rocks from the Sinai desert and the Malachite stone that is known to protect the bearer. For me it is a question of attitude, a question of using jewellery as something that makes a statement. It becomes of a part of your every day wardrobe, but also something that you can use for that special occasion. I love beautifying the bearer, and the X collection for me is somewhat a tribute to that raw, sexy personal expression. I love the old flashy jewellery statement from the 70ies and 80ies, but this collection is more something that becomes a part of the man’s everyday attire. I want the bearer to have a natural connection with the piece, to fall in love with the piece. For the first time, Elhanati launches new collection, X Man at MYTHERESA.com this November.

REDVALENTINO SPRING/SUMMER 2021 COLLECTION

Fashion A new wind is blowing. It’s time for transformation, for discovering new levels of identity and new meanings, for changing perspective while looking at what is familiar and well known. REDValentino takes up the challenge and embraces the Spring/Summer 2021 season with a new attitude: free, independent, a bit radical.   REDValentino hits the streets, takes some risks, experiences a new bravery. The attitude gets a tad erce, irreverent, fearless. The brand’s aesthetic and stylistic codes remain the same, but they are exaggerated, blown up. The “so RED” bows, ruf es and ounces nd new proportions, new contexts, new pairings. They loose their familiar delicacy to become eye-catching symbols of a rediscovered independent femininity.   Silhouettes and lengths are reconsidered for a new look, which exudes street realness. Ruf es punctuate mini nylon frocks, the classic eyelet is magni ed on breezy dresses, point d’esprit tulle is matched with cotton t-shirts and oversized sweatshirts. Outerwear pieces with a technical look counterbalanced the ethereal femininity of tulle ounced designs, while oversized ruf es add a couture-like touch to jersey tops. Denim is manipulated to shape eye-catching attires with a customized,artisanal and very personal attitude. The restrained, concise palette of black, white and powder pink also welcomes vibrant touch of neon orange and acid green.   The ultra softness of the “Knot Me Up!”, a nylon shoulder strap embellished with a maxi bow detail, contrasts with the urban graphic look of the platform sandals featuring a puffy strap or a signature bow. “I think this season, it was really time to bring REDValentino into the street, exploring a new sense of authenticity and independency,” says the creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli. “I wanted to show a new, disruptive take on the brand’s signature aesthetic codes, delivering a wardrobe for cool, free, independent girls.” A new wind is blowing.

Introducing Allbirds Apparel with Purpose: A nature-evolved collection of form and function

Fashion The future of fashion is one that feels better, on you and on the planet. And in 2020, it’s become more clear than ever that the most modern way of life is to live one closer to nature.   From the start, we knew that our vision of evolved environmentalism was broader than just shoes. And as the chasm between disposable fast fashion and utilitarian basics has grown, the fashion industry has clung to the same outdated methods that continue to drive excessive carbon emissions, soil depletion, and synthetic waste.    So we asked ourselves, why couldn’t we give people clothes they’ll love and simply make them better?   Allbirds Apparel: The Future of Fashion:   This October, we are extending our responsible, modern minimalism beyond shoes. We leaned into our core tenets–simple design, premium natural materials, and commitment to sustainability–to create Apparel with purpose. Allbirds Apparel not only feels better, performs better, and looks better, it’s also better for the planet.     The introductory collection––TrinoXO™ Tee, Wool Jumper, Cardi, and TrinoTM Puffer––aren’t just a return to nature, they’re an evolution of nature. The world’s first full line of Apparel to be labelled with the Carbon Footprint of each piece, these cutting-edge classics combine next-generation natural textile innovation with an appreciation for heritage methods and materials. Embodying our “right amount of nothing” design philosophy, Allbirds Apparel is subtle yet visually distinctive, and feels luxurious.    TrinoXO™ Tee  Your new favourite tee is made from sustainably sourced, renewable materials. The TrinoXO™ Tee’s secret ingredient is Allbirds’s latest material innovation – XO™, a naturally derived fibre made from discarded shells from marine life, the second most abundant biopolymer on Earth. The chitosan from these shells has unique capabilities, allowing your clothes to stay fresh for longer without relying on extractive materials like Zinc or Silver. The TrinoXO™ Tee may be made from a revolutionary material, but it is a celebration of classic, heritage design.    Wool Cardi + Jumper Knit from premium ZQ-certified New Zealand Merino, Allbirds’s sweaters are a true celebration of our favourite wonder-fibre. Like all of Allbirds’s Wool, the Merino in the Cardi and Jumper is superfine and responsibly sourced. The Cardi and Jumper are an extension of Allbirds’s unique take on minimalism – slightly oversized with a textured knit structure and distinctive design details, you’ll be reaching for these sweaters all winter long.    TrinoTM Puffer Traditional puffers are made from oil-derived synthetic fabrics, toxic fluorine-based water repellents, and down fill. Not anymore – the Allbirds TrinoTM Puffer is a unique take on the classic silhouette that unites expressive design and environmental responsibility. The exterior is made of a Merino and Tencel blend, with a fluorine-free Durable Water Repellent (DWR) to keep you dry. Instead of traditional or synthetic down, our Puffer is filled with Tencel and recycled polyester, creating an innovative and effective down-alternative.    The future of fashion requires less washing  The future of fashion is made with better materials The future of fashion is measured The future of fashion is carbon neutral The future of fashion is form and function The future of fashion is no compromise.

An expansion of ideas, a broadening of scope and a re-commitment to responsible retail and sustainable business practices.   The Prada Re-Nylon collection is a groundbreaking evolution of the brand’s mostrecognisable signifier, nylon - an emblem of Prada’s distinct viewpoint on modernluxury, an industrial beauty, and contemporary life for more than four decades. Re-Nylon is the next step in fabric technology and sustainable luxury - a textile that can be endlessly regenerated without loss of quality, a true cyclical luxury.   Prada Re-Nylon first debuted in 2019 with a capsule bag collection of six classic styles for men and women: a wardrobe of accessories created from the ecologically-conscious, 100% sustainable regenerated nylon. For 2020, the range is expanded and extended, translating Re-Nylon into Prada ready-to-wear for the firsttime. Also for the first time, both of Prada’s signature nylon textiles are offered insustainable Re-Nylon fabrications. Prada’s nylon gabardine is an icon ofcontemporary luxury, fine yet hard-wearing and lustrous, woven on silk looms; while nylon Piuma - Italian for ‘feather’ - is an incredibly fine and lightweight nylon with the feel and handle of silk. Here, both are reinvented for the 21st century in entirely regenerated and future-sustainable Re-Nylon textile - a next generation Prada.   Translating Re-Nylon into Prada ready-to-wear, pieces fuse sportswear elements with silhouettes and approaches of luxury: slim-line tailored single-breasted overcoats for men, full-skirted and slender cocktail dresses and cocoon-coats for women. Alongside these gendered offerings are fluid sports clothing, padded jackets, spots-detailed trousers and shorts, and t-shirts. Paying homage to the iconic 1984 Prada nylon backpack - the first introduction of nylon into the sphere of luxury - dresses feature front-pockets, buckles and webbing shoulder-straps, a hybrid of accessory and attire, utility as decoration. By seemingly reworking the Prada backpack into a dress, it also echoes the notion of recycling and regeneration, the changing of old into new that is central to the ethos of Re-Nylon.   Alongside ready-to-wear, the collection features the first Re-Nylon footwear, regenerated nylon used to create new iterations of the Monolith combat boots and shoes, and low- and high-top sneakers. The accessory offering is also expanded, including hats, belts and multiple bag silhouettes for men and women. These styles include belt-bags, backpacks, cross-body styles and an archival Re-Edition style drawn from 2000, highlighting the continuous and timeless appeal of Prada nylon. All accessories and garments feature the Prada Re-Nylon logo, the Prada triangular logo reworked as a looping arrow, a symbol of perpetual renewal and of the cyclical, everlasting life of Re-Nylon.   Prada Re-Nylon is entirely crafted from a regenerated nylon created through the recycling and purification of plastic collected from oceans, fishing nets, landfills and textile fibre waste globally. Through a process of de-molymerization, purification and then transformation into new polymers and then threads, this material can be recuperated and made into new nylon fabric. The choice of the ECONYL® yarn for the Prada Re-Nylon collection actively contributes to the reduction of the global warming up to 90%* compared to the use of the virgin nylon yarn.   Representing a commitment to sustainable practice now and in the future, the expansion of the Prada Re-Nylon offering renews a company-wide estimate goal for sustainability: to convert all Prada virgin nylon into regenerated nylon by the end of 2021. Furthermore, this bold and ongoing decision represents a shift in how we seeluxury as fundamental as Prada’s introduction of nylon. If that invented a modern,industrial concept of luxury, Re-Nylon proposes a new notion. It transforms not only methods of production, but also that of the final product - in that it proposes that no product is truly final. Re-Nylon is not an idea of luxury, but an ideology - one that is sustainable and truly responsible.   The Prada Re-Nylon collection is available in selected Prada boutiques worldwide with dedicated in-store and window set-ups, via prada.com as well as through selected retail partners with special pop-up stores.

FENDI X CHAOS

Accessories The FENDI X CHAOS Capsule Collection for Fall/Winter 2020-21 is a new collaboration between the Maison and the London-based accessories brand CHAOS designed by Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall, with a series of ‘tech jewellery’ pieces  that offer a luxurious alternative to everyday accessories. First unveiled at the FENDI Women’s Fall/Winter 2020-2021 Fashion Show in Milan this February, the pieces are a result of the longstanding creative relationship between FENDI and CHAOS — one established by Karl Lagerfeld and continued today by FENDI Artistic Director Silvia Venturini Fendi.      The FENDI X CHAOS collaboration reimagines accessories iconic to the era of old Hollywood glamour into the modern the world. The collection is a contemporary take on traditional accessories and  present innovative way is which to carry and protect them. Irony and humour abound, as no digital or analog device is left uncovered. Born from a mutual love of vintage cigarette cases, gold lighters and evening clutches, the first FENDI X CHAOS designs fuse perforated and engraved metal shapes with FENDI leather craftsmanship, touches of satin and iconic logo hardware, instantly transforming a smartphone, smart watch, and wireless earbuds into jewel-like accessories. Each of the tailor-made cases are designed as an interconnected system to clip onto the season’s FENDI waist belts, zipper chain lanyards from the collaboration or any FENDI handbag – for a seamless transition from your home office to the airport lounge.      Other fantasy items accent this debut collaboration with utilitarian elegance and an inherent sense of fun, elevating everyday items into glamorous tools. A multifunction gold and silver scribble pen works on paper and tablets alike or it can be worn as an earring like in the FENDI Fall/Winter 20-21 catwalk looks. A four-piece metal shot glass set is suspended from a moulded leather keyring: the perfect novelty to take you from your morning green juice shot to a cheeky after-work tequila. Complementing the traditional clip-on smartphone case in engraved metal, a leather and satin minaudièrecase features a gold chain handle or it can be paired with a FENDI clipped satin strap and a long, flapped evening purse is crafted in glittering gold mesh ‘chainmail’. With no ‘tech’ left unturned, even the laptop gets the FENDI X CHAOS treatment with playful FENDI fur and shearling protective panels. Like instant collectibles, each FENDI X CHAOS creation is a playful plug-in designed to be mixed and matched – bringing the CHAOS theory of customization into the FENDI universe.   The FENDI X CHAOS Capsule Collection for Fall/Winter 2020-21 is a new collaboration between the Maison and the London-based accessories brand CHAOS designed by Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall, with a series of ‘tech jewellery’ pieces  that offer a luxurious alternative to everyday accessories.
