SAINT LAURENT SUMMER 21 BY ANTHONY VACCARELLO

Fashion Finding the essence of things. Pure and soft shapes, a thick jersey uncovered from the late Sixties archives. Uncertain times, just like today. And as a response to that turmoil mixed with worry, but also hope and new passions, the same desire to dress just for yourself, a yearning for comfort and confidence. Outlining the body without constricting it. Going out after slipping on a tunic and trousers, a vareuse with spacious pockets, a long jacket with tidy shoulders, all like new versions of Le Smoking. A silk blouse worn with rider shorts, or a fluid, pseudo austere jumpsuit, emphasizing a lean silhouette. For the “inside” life, we have all come to know, a floral explosion of chiffon with fluffy marabout fringes, a subtly sheer Liseuse, a not so quaint charm, somewhere between fantasy and fancy. The Jewelry is illuminating the muted and enveloping colors of a collection dedicated to the freedom of movement.     « I wanted to focus on the essence of things. I think it’s a sign of the times. But I didn’t want anything bleak or heavy. The desert, to me, symbolizes that yearn for serenity, open space, a slower rhythm. The clothes are also softer, the spirit of the collection is more gentle, stripped back » Anthony Vaccarello     Credits : Video @ncanguilhem Soundtrack @sebastian_edbgr A selection of jewelry featured in the collection are designed by Claude Lalanne ysl.com #YSL #SaintLaurent #YvesSaintLaurent @Anthonyvaccarello Finding the essence of things.

GIVENCHY presents the pre-collection for Fall 2021

GIVENCHY presents the pre-collection for Fall 2021

Fashion “Ultimately, what I am trying to do in the Givenchy collections is reflect today’s world. I appreciate a certain material experimentation and an intense contrast in clothing that could only be achieved and exist now. At the same time, we embrace tradition, the techniques of the salon and timelessness; these distinct elements are not mutually exclusive. The clothing is not disposable or dictatorial, instead we want it to become central to a person’s sense of their own style, and build each season. It’s an idea of a more personal luxury, of simultaneous formality and informality, construction and comfort; it’s the luxury of people wearing clothes, not clothes wearing people.” Matthew M. Williams, Creative Director, Givenchy     Honing in on elements begun in his debut offering for Givenchy, Matthew M. Williams presents a collection of contrasts, both strident and subtle, for Fall ’21. Here, both classicism and subversion play a part; focusing on the traditional areas of tailoring, knitwear and leather there is an experimentation with the codes and techniques related to each, together with an ease applied equally for both men and women. Working with a precise, monochromatic palette in looks, the classicism of black, white and silver grey is contrasted with olive drab, vivid red and pink, becoming almost provocative in their connotations.     It is the discreet opulence of materials and methods that matter, found in an array of clothing choices both formal and informal, classical and more radical.     Clothing archetypes are once again experimented with alongside proportion in the silhouettes, bringing together ideas of both the salon and the city street. This is particularly visible in the recurring ‘cropped’motif, where jackets echo MA1 bombers, varsity and evening boleros. Signature, sculptural jersey is once again applied to realise pure yet easeful forms, at times literally punctuated with studs. Here, hardware made embellishment – a key Williams’ theme for each gender – mainly finds form in the stud this season. The new 4G Emblem bag also carries with it a tough yet decorative approach to hardware for both women and men. A constructed attitude to the Givenchy monogram is realised in guipure lace, a motif reinforcing a sense of underlying, traditional, rigorous craft as well as ascendant surface style in the collection.     An idea of a ‘second skin’ is utilised extensively, predominantly in the use of silk for women and men; both constructed and comfortable, a sinuous sensuousness travels through the collection, particularly in tailoring, This is also found in the leather pieces, where ease, structure and casual non-conformity all come into play. In turn, leather footwear becomes more fully integrated into the actual silhouettes, principally in the use of long, patent leather boots. Comfort is not forgotten in the footwear, with soles formulated using new TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane, a bridge between rubber and plastic) techniques. There is also a continuation of the Marshmallow Slide – with its extremely comfortable recovery-style sole – mixed with new, natural and more formal materials.     Collaborating on the imagery once more with the photographer Heji Shin, Williams presents a democratic and encompassing view of Givenchy. Here, the focus is on the people wearing the clothes as opposed to the clothes wearing the people – there is not just one Givenchy woman or one Givenchy man, but many. Each brings their own inimitable character and sense of style to the House. “Ultimately, what I am trying to do in the Givenchy collections is reflect today’s world.

VANS DONATES $1M+ TO GLOBAL CHARITIES IN SUPPORT OF MENTAL HEALTH

Accessories  Today, Vans, the original action sports brand and advocate for creative expression, commemorates the second-annual #VansCheckerboardDay held on November 19, with a more than $1 million donation to 10 global charities to champion the power of creative expression.     Following a period of global isolation, this year's Vans Checkerboard Day rallied Vans Fans around the world to amplify and help grow the mission of the global charity partners whose shared purpose is to use creativity-focused programs to impact mental health and wellbeing. Through a donation from Vans and by empowering fans to help raise more money by purchasing limited-edition product designed by Geoff McFetridge, donating their Vans Family points or by participating in the newly launched text-to-donate function in the U.S., each charity partner will receive over $100,000 USD, directly from Vans or from the Vans Checkerboard Fund at Tides Foundation. The donations will enable charities to expand their services and resources to help the growing number of youth address mental health concerns through creative outlets such as art, music and action sports, including:   Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) will use the funding to redevelop their website which will greatly improve the digital support to the hundreds of thousands of people who come to CALM for help and advice, so that they can reach more people before the point of crisis. And continue to serve those who are at high risk of suicide, no matter what.     The Wave Project will now be able to expand its Beach School project within Cornwall and provide access to surf therapy for more isolated young people. The Beach School programme enables young people to improve their mental wellbeing whilst reconnecting with their creativity and potential through learning at the beach.     Arte Por La Vida will now be able to expand their work across Mexico and ensure they can provide the necessary resources to a growing number of beneficiaries in need, including materials for workshops, launching new programs, paying teachers and professionals that lead sessions, and ensure that individuals have transportation to get to and from workshops or sessions.     House of Vans Chicago mural by OJ Hays & Jasmine Webb was one of ten local murals created across the U.S. to help spread positivity and promote mental wellnesswithin communities.     Global fans showed up virtually around the world to participate in a variety of digital brand initiatives focused on uplifting and driving awareness for the power of creative self-expression as a resource for mental health and well-being, including over 2 billion views of the #VansCheckerboardDay TikTok Challenge and ambassador testimonials from Tony Hawk, Yaya Zahir and Catalina Bu sharing a behind-the-scenes look at how their own forms of creative self-expression have helped them this year.     Vans brand ambassadors Tony Hawk, Yaya Zahir and Catalina Bu share how they use their own forms of creative self-expression to address mental health and well-being.   “While it is an understatement to say that 2020 has been incredibly stressful, anxiety-ridden and frustrating, I believe there’s a tremendous opportunity for creativity to play a powerful and meaningful role in how we navigate and overcome challenges caused by global isolation,” says Doug Palladini, Vans Global Brand President. “Vans Checkerboard Day took on a very specific mission this year – to champion the power of creativity as an outlet for mental health. With the global pandemic continuing to impact many aspects of our lives, we set out to reinforce our brand commitment and responsibility to be there for our Vans family by connecting through creativity.”     Since 2013, Vans has donated more than $10 million to creative charities globally, enabling creative expression in communities around the world. Vans believes that creativity is an essential part of being human and that everyone should be able to express themselves through the unique mediums that come from action sports, art, music and street culture. The Vans Checkerboard Fund at Tides Foundation will allow Vans to connect with more organizations around the world that work to enable creativity for our youth.

DIOR presents the Fall 2021 collection

Fashion For Maria Grazia Chiuri, creating a collection is above all about exploring the bonds she weaves with her time. The Fall 2021 line thus is infused with a double movement between innovation and heritage, ultramodernity and the savoir-faire in the Dior ateliers. Hyper-colorful, transparent, shiny, embroidered or silvered, each piece outlines a new Pop attitude with a sportswear spirit, evoking the aesthetic power of designer Elio Fiorucci, as well as the way Andy Warhol revisited and reinterpreted Renaissance paintings by Paolo Uccello. Mizza Bricard, the muse of muses for Christian Dior, loved leopard print – which became an emblematic code of the House – and today it punctuates many looks, reflecting a radiant, vibrant optimism alongside the vitality of raspberry and chartreuse hues. Fashion becomes an experience to be explored, symbolized by a series of white T-shirts designed like an inspiring diary, a space of infinite freedom for the imagination. Dior icons, including the Bar jacket, are reinterpreted with audacity and refinement. An ode to energy and joie de vivre, exalted by the richness of exceptional craftsmanship.
