FENDI presents the new collection for Fall & Winter

Fashion Week Kim Jones’ Ready To Wear Autumn/Winter 2021 collection for FENDI offers a new chapter for the house, presented through an homage to its key codes and the women who have enshrined its legacy. Drawing upon the femininity and savoir-faire which have long defined the FENDI name, this is a celebration of extraordinary Italian elegance as seen from a new perspective.     The wardrobes of the five Fendi sisters offer a foundational resource: from the bell sleeves of a washed mink and bonded suede coat, to the pinstripes of their office attire now rendered in silken shirting or perfectly proportioned wool tailoring. A utilitarian shirt jacket, inspired by Silvia Venturini Fendi’s daily uniform, is elevated into a newly luxurious, shearling iteration with a bonded mink interior.  “The Fendi family are women of intellect who work hard – and that’s what I wanted to celebrate,” notes Jones. “A powerful dynasty.”     Double cashmere and camel outerwear which extends into mink tricot or wool-fringed scarves appears at once profoundly practical and deeply desirable, its form elsewhere translated into draped shirts and dresses. “I’m taking the amazing, strong women who I both know and work with, and listening to their needs,” Jones continues. “There’s a usefulness to the collection, explored in a chic, timeless way.”   Details drawn from Karl Lagerfeld’s legacy – the understated omnipresence of the Karligraphy monogram, or the FENDI Firstshoe whose architectural heel has evolved from an archival sketch – are reworked for a new era, while motifs from Jones’ Couture collection are reprised through marbled silk dresses, rosette blooms or delicate organza embroideries on jacquard knits.     The remarkable craftsmanship of the FENDI ateliers remains omnipresent throughout – in a mink herringbone jacket made featherlight through its suspended construction, leather suiting inset with ajour embroidery, or Karligraphy monograms laser cut into suede. The embossed Selleria stitching applied to gabardine trenches, double cashmere coats or leather accessories is a tribute to that meticulous exceptionalism – a quality most visible to the women who will wear the clothes. “Fun isn’t always just about bright colours,” says Jones. “It can be about really luxurious self indulgence, which pleases the person wearing it more than anyone else.”     This is a collection designed with those women in mind: clothing which translates everyday femininity into hyper-luxurious terrain.     Alongside the collection appears a wealth of new accessories for a new chapter, directed by Silvia Venturini Fendi. The debut of the FENDI First, which pays homage to the off-kilter irreverence of the brand, tilts the FENDI monogram into the frame of a clutch and is presented in myriad variations: from a size roomy enough to fit a tablet to a micro pouch strung as jewellery, and is rendered in shearling, leather, and exotics.     Elsewhere, new silhouettes are presented through the FENDI Way tote and FENDI Touch shoulder bag, while classics like thePeekaboo and Sunshine Shopper are seen from a new perspective, distorted into new proportions and decorated with Selleria details.     This season, the FENDI hand in hand project – which enlists craftspeople from each of Italy’s 20 regions to reimagine the iconic Baguette – translates Campania’s artisanal excellence into a limited-edition series of objects d’art. Here the same, intricate wood inlays found in 6th century Benedictine monasteries become a veneered, structured Baguette with a baroque floral motif.   Delfina Delettrez Fendi introduces a new jewellery range for the house, FENDI O’Lock, which evolves the FENDI logo into graphic modernity through its carabineer form, and comes complete with padlocks that can only be opened by dialing FENDI. Wax seal pendants stamped with Karligraphy are strung from golden chains, and metal cuffs, covered in leather and embellished with Selleria details, directly reflect the empowered sensibility of the FENDI woman.         Show Credits:   Artistic Director of Couture and Womenswear Collections: @MrKimJones Artistic Director of Accessories and Menswear Collections: @SilviaVenturiniFendi Jewellery Creative Director: @delfinadelettrez Film Direction: @alexdebetak Design and show production: @bureaubetak Film Production: @bureaufuture Filming: @walterfilms Music: @michelgaubert Antiques: @galerie.chenel   Styling: @themelanieward Hair: @guidopalau Makeup: @peterphilipsmakeup Nails: @beautick_official Casting: @shelleydurkancasting   Special thanks to @therealswizzz Kim Jones’ Ready To Wear Autumn/Winter 2021 collection for FENDI offers a new chapter for the house, presented through an homage to its key codes and the women who have enshrined its legacy.

Moose Knuckles SS21 "Arise" Campaign

Moose Knuckles SS21 "Arise" Campaign

Fashion After a long, stagnant winter, luxury outerwear brand Moose Knuckles takes a moment to exhale as it extends a warm welcome to spring with its SS21 campaign aptly titled ARISE.     For almost a year, life on earth has come to a crashing standstill. As the mercury fell, options evaporated, and the realities of our "new normal" set in. With nowhere to go and nothing to do, hundreds of thousands put their lives on pause. Things got bleak, but a brighter day has finally arrived. Survival is no longer enough. Press play, get up, and start living.     "We saw this as a huge opportunity to let our consumer know we’re paying attention. Weknow they've been through the wringer. We went through it too. Our message to them isthere’s a light at the end of the tunnel." - Dominique Lagleva, Global Marketing Director.     To Moose Knuckles, SS21 represents a long-awaited breath of fresh air. One last moment to unwind before the world gets back up to speed. It's a homecoming marking the return of good weather, good company (outdoors and socially distanced of course), and good vibes.     Photographer Hugo Comte's masterfully arranged composition accentuates each subject's individuality without undermining the group dynamic. Each shot a reminder of the balance between our shared humanity and the diversity that makes the world so interesting.     "I wanted to express the symbiotic nature of individuality. The idea that everyone can be unique without letting their differences divide them." Hugo Comte, Photographer     Stylist Alex Harrington set out to illustrate the shifted perspectives developed by the onslaught of idle time that was 2020. Adroitly employing the collection's distinct silhouette and bold pops of color with unique yet purposeful layering and a wardrobe that reflects the creativity and vibrance of someone fresh off a year spent in hibernation.     "We put together an all-star team to help bring this concept to life. And everyone left their mark. Nothing feels better than seeing an idea evolve as the creative baton was passed from hand to hand. I couldn't be any happier with the way things turned out." - Brody Baker, Creative Director     As always, Moose Knuckles delivers a versatile collection of comfortable sportswear and transitional outerwear, all designed to promote freedom from the elements. The season also debuts Pack Your Moose, a range of unstoppable rainwear that takes a new approach to solve spring's unpredictable weather. If you've got a questionable meteorologist, this is the collection for you. On top of the unlined recycled nylon shells, bonded seams, and recycled hardware that provide our signature Moose Knuckles protection, each coat features a packable design and fastening system so you'll never get caught unprepared for the rain again.     The campaign launches Feb.23 2021 and will be available for purchase at Moose Knuckles stores, mooseknucklescanada.com, and luxury retailers worldwide.

BURBERRY AUTUMN/WINTER 2021 MENSWEAR COLLECTION

BURBERRY AUTUMN/WINTER 2021 MENSWEAR COLLECTION

Fashion Week ‘For my first Burberry menswear-focused collection, I wanted to celebrate the freedom of expression. Enclosed indoors, I dreamt of the outdoors and its beauty, fuelled by the thought of the creativity that comes when we are together. With this dream in mind, I became fascinated by the widespread British craft and outdoor movements of the early 20th Century, when people escaped to explore the unknown countryside. They formed communities with a deep respect for nature and the outdoors and looked forward to a future full of possibility. I was not only drawn to the artistry of their craft, colours and shapes, but also to their strong sense of camaraderie and friendship. This collection is an homage to the relationship between humanity and nature, where we can break free and come together to discover new forms of expression. It’s for those who are defining their own path, whose strength and energy have inspired this Burberry collection.’ Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer     The Burberry Autumn/Winter 2021 menswear collection gently challenges and subtly reinvents traditions, inviting freedom of expression. The collection itself is dynamic and young, vibrant and alive. Outerwear is key. Clothes are engineered to reflect motion and activity – with pleats, panels and fringes – as if moving in the wind. Layered pieces morph unexpectedly on the body. Tailoring has a sense of twisted classicism, whilst Burberry’s quintessential house codes – the trench coat and Burberry beige – are evolved.     THE COLLECTION:   Bringing a fresh perspective to the classics, the trench coat is combined with the Harrington jacket. Cotton gabardine and wool-twill car coats are fringed and cinched with scarf belts. Duffle coats are updated in striped wool with reconstructed pockets, and cropped silhouettes with bullion fringing and bold printwork. Knitwear and outerwear meld in modern juxtapositions: the V-neck of a sweater on a trench coat, and a double-breasted panelled jumper. Reconstructed varsity jackets feature in plongé leather and cotton cashmere with ‘B’ insignia. Bullion fringing adds a sense of ceremony to tunic shirts, silk crepe de chine vests and tailored trousers. Shirt dresses and pleated skirts are crafted for movement. The Burberry animal kingdom, a house code, is revisited. Animalistic prints and shapes, photographic mink and fox-fur shirts and pleated skirts, tactile faux-fur fabrications on hooded duffle coats and gilets. Tailoring is re-energised with a twisted classicism. A slim-fit tailored jacket with exaggerated lapels, worn with split tailored shorts over metallic mesh cycling shorts. Panel details transform an English-fit suit in wool ramie, and classic-fit trousers and tailored shorts in grain de poudre wool.     BAGS:   Introducing a reimagined messenger bag. The supersized silhouette features a reconstructed strap – a union of sartorial and hiking influences. Fabrications include faux fur, leather and the Thomas Burberry Monogram print. New iterations of the Pocket Bag family debut – a leather bum bag and backpack for wanderers, detailed with blanket straps.     SHOES:   Supple leather ankle and over-the-knee sock boots and sneakers on moulded soles, sculpted to resemble deer hooves. Details include crystals and metallic paillettes.     ACCESSORIES:   Deer motifs inspire the silhouettes of knitted beanies. A leather framed cashmere-Merino wool blanket, striped cashmere scarf, and walking umbrellas. Leather-clad carabiner charms, and lambskin bear-motif charms embossed with a logo graphic.     KEY PRINTS AND PATTERNS:   An homage to the natural world. Photographic animal-fur prints, and abstract and elemental artworks in vivid colours.     KEY COLOURS:   Burberry beige, bark brown, oxblood burgundy, city greys, pale blue and pink.     HAIR & MAKE-UP: Hair – Jawara Make-up – Isamaya Ffrench, Burberry Global Beauty Director ‘For my first Burberry menswear-focused collection, I wanted to celebrate the freedom of expression.

DIESEL UNVEILS BOLD NEW POP-UP STORE CONCEPT—THE FIRST UNDER CREATIVE DIRECTOR GLENN MARTENS’ VISION—IN BOTH EUROPE AND THE UNITED STATES

DIESEL UNVEILS BOLD NEW POP-UP STORE CONCEPT—THE FIRST UNDER CREATIVE DIRECTOR GLENN MARTENS’ VISION—IN BOTH EUROPE AND THE UNITED STATES

Fashion The two locations, located in Amsterdam and Washington, D.C., capture Martens’ design acumen with immersive, daring architecture and interiors. (Additional sites will follow.)        DIESEL is proud to unveil a new pop-up store concept in both Europe and the United States; it is the first such activation envisioned by the label’s creative director Glenn Martens. The European location is situated at Amsterdam PC Hooftstraat. The U.S. pop-up features at Tyson’s Corner Center, a premier retail complex just adjacent to the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.       Upon entering both spaces, customers are enveloped in DIESEL’s “For Successful Living” ethos; the immediate impression is one of boundary-pushing retail, blending a unique atmospheric experience with the physical act of shopping.       These pop-ups pay homage to DIESEL’s DNA and heritage. The stores use the company’s red tag aesthetic and hue as a primary design feature. Top to bottom, floor to ceiling, the spaces are painted in DIESEL’s iconic red. In tandem, elements of discontinuity and transformation are layered into the architecture; a “For Successful Living” logo is distorted and printed across the entirety of both stores, and is only legible when viewed from their entryways. The immersion engages the visitors’ senses on all levels, leaving a strong and lasting impression.

The immersion engages the visitors’ senses on all levels, leaving a strong and lasting impression.

Gucci Epilogue: Ken Scott

Gucci Epilogue: Ken Scott

Fashion Gucci announces the launch of a selection of special pieces in its Epilogue collection incorporating the work of American fashion designer Ken Scott, who resided in Milan in the 60s and 70s, where he created his colourful patterned fabrics and line.     Given the name ‘the gardener of fashion’ he favoured large scale flowers in his creations including peonies, roses, poppies and sunflowers. Designs from Scott’s rich archive appear on Epilogue’s clothing and accessories for men and women. Colour and floral patterns define the looks. The prints turn up unexpectedly on fleeces, on down jackets, evening gowns, as well as silk accessories including headbands and printed on bags.     “Ken Scott was a really great creator of fabrics,” Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele says, “he mapped out flowers with romanticism and flowers into pop culture. He treated flowers like shop signs, he multiplied them, turned them into something that stood out. I like his work because I am obsessed with floral prints.”     Launching on February 18th and set in a decorated room filled with different patterns and floral arrangements, a dedicated campaign, conceived by Alessandro Michele and shot by photographer Mark Peckmezian, highlights this range of pieces. The Ken Scott patterns were taken from the products to create and customize the wallpaper, curtains, tablecloths and cushions, transforming the atmosphere in an overwhelming world of intense colours and clashing prints.     To celebrate the launch of the Ken Scott pieces, the Gucci Podcast will launch a special episode featuring writer, academic, critic and Professor of Fashion Cultures and Histories at London College of Fashion at the University of the Arts London Shahidha Bari who narrates a story about the American designer’s life, his work and his legacy in contemporary fashion.       Womenswear items featuring decorative motifs from Scott’s archive include a coat, T-shirts, sweatshirts, underwear, a top, pants, skirts, two blazers, shirts and a number of flowing dresses. All are bright, colourful and impactful, with an exuberant spirit. Menswear comprises a coat, Palace jacket, suit (split into separates), down-padded outerwear, bowling sets and tracksuit sets.     The Gucci Ken Scott collaboration is also applied to shoes. For men, the look is sporty and casual; a black cotton base fabric has been printed with contrasting gold lettering – the initials KS and GG – mixed with gold and silver flowers. This material also features for the Gucci Tennis 1977 in lace-up and slip-on models, and the Pursuit slide. The lace-up Tennis shoe also features the green-red-green House Web stripe. Then for another version of the Pursuit, and a Screener sneaker, a bright Ken Scott floral print called ‘Giardino d’Aprile’, translated as ‘April Garden’displaying a combination of bright flowers, makes a powerful impact. The Screener sneaker has blue heels and a blue-red-blue House Web stripe, while the floral Pursuit slide features a large blue interlocking GG on each shoe.     For women’s shoes and boots there are four different Ken Scott prints (‘Giardino d’Aprile’, ’Zia’, ‘Jenni’ and ‘Pomponica’), all featuring bright combinations of flowers in different colours, and all detailed with micro Ken Scott and Gucci script logos. These have been applied to a fabric base to create the materials for a number of footwear styles: sneakers (Rhyton, Ace and Screener), slides, loafers (Princetown and Jordaan), flats and high boots.     Ken Scott’s vibrant floral prints with their ‘70s vibe have also been used for silk and soft accessories and applied to a variety of pieces with different functions: silk carrés have been developed in different sizes, from small (70x70 cm), to classic (90x90 cm), to maxi (140x140 cm), in order to maximise the visibility of Scott’s prints. Furthermore, the offer is completed by colourful ribbons, cosy and refined shawls and stoles, headbands in lamé or cotton and characterful baseball caps and bucket hats. Today Ken Scott is a brand of Mantero, the renowned textile company, and designs from Scott’s rich archive are preserved by the Ken Scott Foundation, now based in Como.     CAMPAIGN CREDITS:   Creative Director: Alessandro Michele Art Director: Christopher Simmonds Photographer & Director: Mark Peckmezian Hair Stylist:  Alex Brownsell Make Up: Thomas De Kluyver Gucci announces the launch of a selection of special pieces in its Epilogue collection incorporating the work of American fashion designer Ken Scott, who resided in Milan in the 60s and 70s, where he created his colourful patterned fabrics and line.     Given the name ‘the gardener of fashion’ he favoured large scale flowers in his creations including peonies, roses, poppies and sunflowers.

VERSACE INTRODUCES LA MEDUSA BAG

Accessories Versace’s latest accessories line is inspired by the brand’s ultimate muse: Medusa.     Medusa is a unique icon of beauty. Once the most beautiful woman in Athens, she was widely desired by everyone who laid eyes on her. She’s a historic example of unapologetic attitude and fearless self-belief. Used throughout ancient art as a token to scare off negativity, she ensures good vibes only.  Medusa is an instantly recognizable symbol of the Versace brand. Each La Medusa handbag is adorned with a Medusa-head plaque – the same plaque that was discovered on the doors of Via Gesù 12: Versace’s first headquarters in Milan.     La Medusa handbags exude positivity through a range of bold shades, but there’s one color that truly defines the line: the DV Blue. Donatella Versace worked to create the perfect shade of blue, inspired by nature and designed to bring happiness to the wearer.     “Blue is my favorite color because for me it represents freedom. When I am in the sea, I feel free. When I’m surrounded by elements of nature and clear blue skies, I feel truly happy and all that is wrong in the world disappears. The world becomes blue.” Donatella Versace     Versace is a proud Italian brand and all La Medusa handbags are made in Italy from premium leather. The softest leather is selected to create a slouchy and unstructured finish – giving the bag a modern and youthful feel.

DIOR presents the new campaign for Spring & Summer

Fashion Symbols of a committed reflection on fashion’s origins and the significance of the cut, Spring-Summer 2021 ready-to-wear looks by Maria Grazia Chiuri are revealed in a series of striking photographs. Celebrating excellence in savoir-faire and creation in all its forms – from Virginia Woolf’s feminist essays to militant collages by Lucia Marcucci that enhanced the staging of the show –, the collection is captured in a campaign brimming with the unique power of painting. Inspired by Caravaggio’s mastery of chiaroscuro, these photos highlight silhouettes with an almost sacred aura of mystery, like icons in a painting, punctuated with shimmering shades of blue, red and gold. Captured by the photographer Elina Kechicheva, these images sublimate Dior codes reinvented with a new language, combining precious embroideries with paisley motifs and floral designs that blossom on dresses and trousers, as well as the essential Dior BookTote. Light, fluid pieces take on the deep blue of denim, while the revisited men's shirt is combined with the Dior Palto jacket, freeing movement with grace and elegance, alongside the irresistible Dior Caro bag. Virtuoso compositions that reveal and exalt the infinite possibilities of the art of couture.   Symbols of a committed reflection on fashion’s origins and the significance of the cut, Spring-Summer 2021 ready-to-wear looks by Maria Grazia Chiuri are revealed in a series of striking photographs.

LOEWE launches the new Anagram Jacquard handbag collection

LOEWE launches the new Anagram Jacquard handbag collection

Accessories Designed by Jonathan Anderson, the ‘Anagram jacquard’ collection sees the LOEWE anagram appear as a pattern and a standalone icon across ve of the house’s bag archetypes: the Hammock, Balloon, Cubi, Horseshoe and the new Anagram tote. The collection weaves the icon into a new, canvas fabric using a special double-warp structure to provide extra de nition and a tactile, 3D effect to the unique hues of anthracite and ecru.     Originally designed in 1970 by Spanish painter Vicente Vela, who took inspiration from the folded metal of branding irons used to mark the leather of cattle, the anagram in the shape of four ‘L‘s has become emblematic of LOEWE’S identity ever since. The design has undergone several changes over the years. In 2013, when Jonathan Anderson joined LOEWE as creative director and undertook an extensive rebranding, the existing baroque style of the anagram received a modern refresh, creating a cleaner, sharper symbol that has been incorporated in product design and across all communications since.     Classic yet contemporary, the Anagram jacquard collection introduces a pattern of repeating anagrams across the fabric of Hammock, Balloon and Cubi bags. With its soft, body-friendly form, the latter in particular takes full advantage of the comfort and practicality offered by the lightweight, yet durable, canvas jacquard, and the adjustable leather shoulder straps available in two lengths.     Horseshoes and Anagram totes offer a different approach, presenting the kaleidoscopic emblem as a standalone icon in the centre of the bags. Intricately hand-crafted by the artisans of LOEWE’s ateliers in Spain, the Anagram jacquard collection is available in the complimentary colourways of ecru with tan calfskin trim, and anthracite against matt black calfskin. Each piece is nished with LOEWE ‘Made in Spain’ branding embossed in gold on the inside of their leather straps, reminding us of its heritage, and the history behind it.     The Anagram jacquard collection will be available from 11 February, 2021.     #LOEWE #LOEWEAnagram Designed by Jonathan Anderson, the ‘Anagram jacquard’ collection sees the LOEWE anagram appear as a pattern and a standalone icon across ve of the house’s bag archetypes: the Hammock, Balloon, Cubi, Horseshoe and the new Anagram tote.
