GIVENCHY PRESENTS THE NEW ANTIGONA BY MATTHEW M. WILLIAMS

GIVENCHY PRESENTS THE NEW ANTIGONA BY MATTHEW M. WILLIAMS

Accessories In 2021, the House of Givenchy embarks on an exciting new chapter for its emblematic Antigona accessories line. Named after the passionate and courageous Greek heroine, the original Antigona last year celebrated its 10th anniversary as the House’s signature women’s handbag. Iconic for its architectural construction, regal lines and effortless mix of feminine and masculine traits, it has become the foundation for a burgeoning family of sleek, urban leather accessories for women and men.     For Spring-Summer 2021, Creative Director Matthew M. Williams reinterprets the icon for a new era, blending his love of industrial hardware with Givenchy hallmarks, subtly infusing the Antigona’s elegant geometry with more generous volumes, a modern attitude and a futuristic edge. Crafted from Box-finish calfskin, the new Antigona salutes its lineage with a scaled-up version of its characteristic pentagonal patch and two signatures — a 4G in front, GIVENCHY lettering in back —evoking the House’s dual character. Luxurious and distinctive 4G padlocks, custom-designed by Matthew M. Williams for Givenchy, are inspired by the celebrated “love locks” of Paris and present an open invitation to further customize the bag as the wearer wishes. Sophisticated enhancements to the Antigona include re-proportioned handles, which are now elongated and anchored lower on the bag’s body to optimize versatility of wear. A roomy central compartment features either a zip or a magnetic closure, both finished with the 4G padlock, while a version of the mini Antigona and the unisex Vertical bag come with a removable strap for cross-body wear, in leather or the new G-link chain respectively.     Matthew M. Williams also brought his visionary aesthetic to the Antigona family’s youngest sibling, the versatile, unisex Antigona Soft bag, and gave it a companion in the form of a sleek shopper tote. Now reconsidered with strong, squared lines, drop-length handles and a 4G padlock, these multi-purpose hybrids make a sophisticated statement whether in the city or on the road.     In the most masculine interpretation of the style to date, the designer presents the nonchalant Antigona U crossbody bag, also in Box-finish leather, featuring a deconstructed version of the 4G padlock that gives this accessory a unique, urban attitude.     The Antigona family of leather handbags will be available in timeless neutral colors or seasonal shades of pink or red. Meanwhile, classic Antigona styles and sizes, in Box-finish or crocodile-embossed leather, are adorned with the new G-link chain. The latest Antigona accessories will be available in Givenchy boutiques and on givenchy.com starting on February 26th, 2021.

  FENDI presents their Men’s Fall/Winter 2021-2022 Collection

FENDI presents their Men’s Fall/Winter 2021-2022 Collection

Fashion Week The FENDI Men’s Fall/Winter 2021-22 collection designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi is an optimistic adventure framed within a game of illusions. A cinematic sequence directed by the Italian artist Nico Vascellari sets the scene for ‘What Is Normal Today ft. Silvia’ – an exclusive dance-pop track composed by Not Waving. Appearing inside an immersive 360° mirrored tunnel, models are infinitely multiplied whilst entirely alone, as a maze of suspended doorways is framed in coloured neon beneath the pulsating ceiling of a futuristic music video.      One by one, a broad spectrum of menswear classics is twisted with FENDI playfulness, emerging from darkness into full Technicolour. The result is an unabashed celebration of colour and light, and a universal message of solidarity and connection in Surreal times. A jewel palette sees emerald, vermillion, saffron, orange, fuchsia, cobalt and periwinkle colour-blocked against black, camel and charcoal, as linings, inlays and slashed seams flash with contrasting textures and shades.     Throughout the collection, multifunctionality and form unite in reversible workwear and relaxed outerwear silhouettes. Belted overcoat and trench shapes in cashmere flannel, satin, striped fur and shearling are infused with a cozy peignoir attitude, and piped pyjama hemlines bring the indoors out and the outdoors in. Diagonal quilting inflates all manner of silk jacquard separates from a shawl collar lounge coat to pullovers, shirt jackets and bermuda shorts in a luxuriant expression of cocooning comfort, and ‘inside-out’ tailoring features deconstructed panels that expose padded FF logo linings. The conventions of ribbed and cable knitting are reimagined as long johns, cardigan scarves, mitten cuffs, and a wrapped ‘sleeve’ neck sweater for a weird and wonderful take on the ‘new normal’.     An icon of the London underground scene, the multidisciplinary artist and performer Noel Fielding provides a series of psychedelic artworks for the collection, abstracting the FENDI logo and emphasizing the season’s cosmic spirit through his multicoloured, stream-of-consciousness scribble art. Faces and creatures emerge straight out of Fielding’s dreamscape narrative accenting the collection’s straightforward silhouette with moments of Art Brut insanity. Fielding’s outré pop sensibility is the latest evolution in Silvia Venturini Fendi’s playful selection of artistic collaborators, that has previously included British artists John Booth, @HeyReilly and Sue Tilley, to name a few.     The FENDI Men’s Fall/Winter 2021-22 accessories collection revels in the bright promise of the season’s chromatic palette. The all-over treatment of colour-matched leathers, matte satin and hardware creates dipped-effect Baguette and flatpack shopper shapes, and miniature luggage styles reprise an embossed stripe FF monogram leather as backpacks and crossbody pouches. In fancy leathers, the Baguette is scaled up and down as a roomy satchel or a lanyard card holder, whilst Noel Fielding’s graphic art adorns the Peekaboo and an FF buckle tote in grainy calfskin. In ultra-classic menswear tones, shearling FF slippers and slip-on laced or buckle sabots continue the collection’s indoor-outdoor conceit, joining zip-up quilted ‘spats’ ankle boots and the FENDI Force Light FF lug-sole combat styles.

ETRO PRESENTS THEIR MEN’S FALL WINTER 2021/22 COLLECTION

Fashion Week Iconoclastic, unconventional, personal. A message of hope and faith. Since the sun always shines after the storm. Menswear Creative Director, Kean Etro, embraces an optimistic, uplifting mood for his Fall Winter 2021/22 collection, which kicks off a new chapter for the brand.     A new attitude takes center stage, with ETRO engaged in a conversation about what makes the fashion house relevant for today’s consumers. A sense of freedom runs through the lineup, where established rules are broken to create a fresh, immediate and appealing vocabulary of iconic pieces to mix and match with a frisky approach. The boundaries between daywear and evening wear blur. Function and aesthetics blend. After the long days of confinement, it is time to take the street with a fierce, bold attitude.     The playful and the ironic meet the elegant and the sumptuous in a mix of high and low, casual and elegant. Impeccable blazers with cadet details and robe coats in rich fabrications are layered on color- blocked sporty anoraks decorated with discreet Paisley patterns. Recycled wool maxi sweaters find place next to shirts featuring collars made of archival silk linings, while the Pegaso logo pops up on bomber jackets and oversized hoodies. The street cool appeal of baggy utility denim pants splashed with cashmere motifs is counterbalanced by the impeccable sartorial sophistication of camel coats and double-breasted suits featuring deconstructed fluid silhouettes. Pajama-inspired piping details enrich shirts. Quilted jackets are crafted from ETRO’s vintage upholstery textiles. Retro sport-inspired logo bands run down the legs of nylon track pants. Clashing contrasts also define the footwear selection, with beautifully constructed brogues and loafers, punctuated by studs, juxtaposed to patchwork sneakers with neon laces. Mandalas and Paisley patterns stand out on highly functional backpacks, pouches and cross body bags with multiple pockets on the straps to carry everyday essentials.     Cherry on top, a range of vests coming in a blend of wool and mohair are part of a see now-buy now genderless capsule collection immediately available, in the neon tones of blue, yellow and pink, on etro.com.

Ninamounah: Collection 006 for Spring / Summer 2021

Fashion A reflection of our most intimate surroundings. For Spring/Summer ’21 they looked inwards. Melting together deadstock materials and recalibrated signature silhouettes. Born from a moment of stillness and reassessment, our new collection comes from a feeling of hope for a bright new future.     Taking cues from traditional Dutch costume and Ninamounah’s usual threesome of leather motor suits, French corsetry and pinstripe tailored suits, the collection offers a contemporary take on familiar tropes. The ‘Kraplap’, a breastcloth garment made of stiff, starched cotton is interpreted as a tailored suit jacket and trousers.     Trousers featuring thigh high contrast panelling are informed by fishermen’s boots, while a traditional trench coat is rendered in luxurious satin hues. Inspired by motor garments, pieces feature side panelling and a relocated seam. A zipper in the waistline can be worn open to show extra skin.     By embracing the method of reclaiming used materials with a specific user’s history for our designs, Ninamounah synthesizes traces of a forlorn past with future realities. Working exclusively with fabrics and leathers that would otherwise be discarded or destroyed, we take responsibility for our planet.       Photo Woody Bos Art Direction Ferdi Sibbel Hair La Toya Velberg Make up David Koppelaarand Jan Fuite Bodypaint Julia Kiryanova   Talents: Nella (Paparazzi Models) Rogier (Success Models) Jairo (Known Model Management) Mira (Vein Agency) A reflection of our most intimate surroundings.

Fashion Continuing a long tradition of acclaimed designer collaborations, H&M is thrilled to announce a new collaboration with the London-based fashion designer Simone Rocha. The Simone Rocha x H&M collection will include Rocha’s signature womenswear, alongside menswear and childrenswear.

This collection, like all her work, celebrates her personal inter-ethnic heritage and the myriad inspirations which have defined the growth of her label, from the traditions and crafts of Hong Kong through to the greats of art history.      TheSimone Rochax H&M collection considers the many silhouettes, fabrications, embellishments shapes and influences that have defined the Simone Rochaworld, offering new twists on signatures and paying homage to key collections that have defined the Simone Rochabrand story. We see glimmers of Tudor courtiers, of wild florals, of portraits and photographs, of dolls and playthings. There is tartan, beading, florals, pinks, reds, and bespoke fabrications, developed in house, especially for this collaboration. In forming this collection, Simone Rochaspent time reflecting on her brand’s archive, combing her past collections and carefully reworking favourites into dynamic new propositions that feel right for today.     The collection, which will be released March 11, also celebrates a decade of the Simone Rocha label – a great achievement for an independent London-based brand. Rocha’s label is acclaimed for the strength of its vision – and a consistency that runs throughout each new garment, allowing wearers of the brand to mix and match pieces across seasons. This collection is informed with a similar desire to create hard-working pieces to be loved, cherished and worn again and again. It is an invitation into the Simone Rochaworld, extended to all.     “I am so thrilled to be working with H&M on this very special collection. It truly is a celebration of the signatures of my brand, and the influences that have shaped me. As a designer, and as a customer, I’ve been such a fan of the H&M collaboration concept. Margiela, Alber Elbaz, Comme des Garcons – it’s such an amazing list of alumni to be a part of.”– Simone Rocha.     “Simone Rochahas been on the H&M wish-list for some time. This collaboration offers a new audience the chance to own a very special piece of design history. All of us at H&M have been so inspired to work with a female designer who spends so much time thinking about contemporary femininity, and womanhood, and who is so committed to excellence in craft and design, from the process of developing special fabrications, to pushing silhouettes, shapes and embellishments. Every garment within this collection is unique, special and the result of years of work and meticulous research.” - Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M.  Continuing a long tradition of acclaimed designer collaborations, H&M is thrilled to announce a new collaboration with the London-based fashion designer Simone Rocha.

DR. MARTENS X KEITH HARING: A NEW COLLABORATION WITH THE BOUNDARY-BREAKING SOCIO-POLITICAL ARTIST

Accessories Keith Haring’s impact on the art community was unparalleled. Even those who aren’t familiar with his name are familiar with his work. His art is everywhere. On t-shirts. On the side of buildings. Chairs, keyrings and badges. And now our boots and shoes. As part of a series of collaborations with radical artists, DM’s are shining a spotlight on Haring’s legendary artwork.     The New York-based artist’s colourful, cartoonish graphics were deep-rooted in social activism. His publicly-minded pieces questioned authority whilst being accessible and upbeat. There was always more than met the eye. And therestill is. An artist who spent his life ghting for the oppressed and against convention, the proli c artist’s legacy continues to make waves. In our rst collaboration, we pay tribute to an individual who lived the DM’s mindset everysingle day.     Their Original silhouettes are printed with Haring’s instantly recognisable illustrations, and detailed with two bright character lace charms. The 1460 boot is built from Smooth leather enhanced with black graphic detailing across theupper. Complete with a strip of his bold, colourful gures graphic on the heel.     Their two 1461 shoes are made from Smooth leather and decorated with his staple designs — the rst a nod to his ‘angelicbaby’ designs with white colouring, and the second is an all-over print featuring Haring’s iconic characters.     Finishing off the collaboration is a black kids 1460 boot. Constructed from soft Hydro leather, it’s printed with his classic bat graphic and features a cartoon dog on the lace charm and an illustrated sock liner.

Vault by Vans Presents The OG Authentic LX Zodiac Pack

Vault by Vans Presents The OG Authentic LX Zodiac Pack

Accessories Vault by Vans commences the New Year with a spin on the OG Authentic LX, featuring a mishmash of zodiac signs that nods to cosmic influences and extends to a collection of apparel and accessories.      Leading the pack, the OG Authentic LX in zodiac and black offers an allover embroidered pattern on a full canvas upper, showcasing artwork by Johannes Wieser, a designer and vintage collector based in Stockholm, Sweden.     Johannes worked with Vans to apply an interpretation of his artwork to the collection, which grew organically from a single T-shirt to what the designer describes as an entire universe. He likened the process to Japanese Raku pottery, a hand-molded technique in which a kiln is filled with different herbs and glazes producing dramatically unique variations. The resulting Zodiac Pack represents the mutual respect and ethos created through the partnership.     Johannes’ design carries over to the Vault OG Zodiac chore coat, a 100-percent cotton heavyweight canvas jacket with reversible print, Vault by Vans specific snap closures, dual-entry pockets, cuff adjusters, and a custom woven label.      The collection also includes a Vault by Vans OG Zodiac heavyweight hooded pullover fleece, as well as a short sleeve T-shirt in black, each featuring glow-in-the-dark and puff ink. A Vault by Vans OG Zodiac bucket hat with 100% cotton printed canvas and reversible zodiac and solid black colorways, as well as a Zodiac tote with an internal drop pocket and Vault woven label round out the offering.     The Vault by Vans OG Authentic LX Zodiac Pack is now available at select Vault by Vans retailers.
