LADY D-LITE

Accessories Embodying the quintessence of the House’s spirit, the Lady Dior stands out for its architectural lines, symbolic of the excellence in savoir-faire of the Dior Ateliers. The iconic bag is reinvented for the spring-summer 2020 ready-to-wear collection in a fully embroidered version, reflecting Dior’s exclusive know-how, called Lady D-Lite. Its creation is the result of a unique ritual: the realization of 3-D tone-on-tone embroideries based on the Cannage motif, followed by the meticulous assembly work on a wooden form, ending with a special finish that makes the bag more hard-wearing for everyday use. The metallic parts – including clasps, eyelets and reinterpreted charms in tribute to the lucky tokens Monsieur Dior always had on him – further enhance this emblem of elegance. Each intricately thought- out detail contributes to its beauty, including the “Christian Dior” signature that punctuates its timeless, graphic style. Delivered with a matching strap, this new object of desire is available in gray, black, beige, pink and white in order to adapt to every look. Requiring infinite precision, the bag’s fabrication involves a combination of passion and patience. This creation can also be personalized at exclusive Dior events. more on dior.com Embodying the quintessence of the House’s spirit, the Lady Dior stands out for its architectural lines, symbolic of the excellence in savoir-faire of the Dior Ateliers.

DIOR for Fall & Winter 2020-2021

DIOR for Fall & Winter 2020-2021

Fashion Week “It doesn’t matter where we start from1...” Carla Lonzi, Autoritratto, 1969. Autobiography, self-portrait, story. Associating places, images, words. Freely, with fresh eyes. For this fall-winter 2020- 2021 ready-to-wear collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri maps out an atlas of emotions through the prism of her teenage diary. Two photos of her mother transport her back to this time in her life, a laboratory brimming with possibilities of what the future may hold. Images reappear, including photos of actresses who served as inspiration for clients of her mother’s couture atelier, as well as for the Creative Director herself, who used fashion as a way of asserting herself, of rebelling, and communicating to others how she wanted to be perceived. Next came other photos from the past that she revisits with her vision today: Germana Marucelli’s studio in Milan, designed by artist Paolo Scheggi; that of Mila Schön by Ugo Mulas and, lastly, portraits of Carla Accardi. This arborescent diagram inspired Maria Grazia Chiuri’s very own The Little Dictionary of Fashion2, with jeans, as well as the checks that Monsieur Dior was so fond of. “I love checks. They can be fancy and simple; elegant and easy; young and always right3.” Checks resurface on an ensemble designed by Marc Bohan: it’s this outfit, with the motif placed on the bias, that inspired the structure of the collection’s skirts. There’s also the pea coat and pleated skirts. Little collars with ties. Black and white. All this is at the heart of a perfectly balanced collection. A polka dot scarf found in the Dior archives serves as the starting point for a series of dresses in various lengths that explore the print’s infinite possibilities. As Christian Dior writes in his The Little Dictionary of Fashion: “I would say the same about dots as about checks. They are lovely, elegant, easy and always in fashion.3” Not to mention fringes, which provide mobile ornamentation on long skirts. Knitwear spans all the wardrobe essentials: sweaters, jackets, skirts, and pants. The show venue was designed in collaboration with the Claire Fontaine collective, which has exhibited at the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome. The museum is also home to the archives of Carla Lonzi, a charismatic figure who was an art critic before committing to the feminist cause. “Io Dico Io – I Say I4”, the title of an upcoming exhibition dedicated to Italian women artists, supported by Dior, becomes the starting point for a series of manifesto-like phrases. Evoking these words in English – “I Say I” – right at the show’s entrance brings to life a story of powerful self-assertion. They are the symbol of a joyful singularity, as well as a creative and collective way of approaching the multiple aspects of feminine subjectivity — and the infinite project that femininity represents.   “It doesn’t matter where we start from1...” Carla Lonzi, Autoritratto, 1969.

American Vintage Spring & Summer campaign

Fashion Once again, photographer Julia Champeau immortalises the spring/summer 2020 collection on film.   In the streets of a Mediterranean city, she captures for just a moment this luminous, unique, urban atmosphere, steeped in history. Trailing  close  behind  Lily  Taieb,  Devon  Ross  and  Étienne  de  Testa... The  wanderings  of  these  three  new  faces  reflect  their style. Between the rigorous Bauhaus architecture and the warm softness of sunbeams. First and foremost, in this singular encounter between past and present, the friends represent a moment like the anti-heroes of a Larry Clark film, draped in nonchalance. The oversized shapes and 90s sportswear take their inspirations in the past to tell stories of the present. The freedom to wear anything. Girl or boy, depending on your mood. The outfits match and mismatch. There are no more rules. It’s a state of mind. Omnipresent, cotton enwraps bodies and enhances movements. Denim, gabardine, poplin. Striding forward in canvas sneakers on the pavement or in the sand.  Once again, photographer Julia Champeau immortalises the spring/summer 2020 collection on film.   In the streets of a Mediterranean city, she captures for just a moment this luminous, unique, urban atmosphere, steeped in history.

Barbiere hair and styling is now complete with 6 new formulas.

Barbiere hair and styling is now complete with 6 new formulas.

Beauty The BARBIERE universe is expanding with six new formulas specially developed for men's hair. Acqua di Parma chose the best ingredients and therefore created a number of synergetic compositions. Like the other products from the BARBIERE collection, the hair care and styling products create a sensual experience. The fresh, vibrant scent of Colonia is combined - depending on the purpose of the formula - with a light, rich, smooth or almost imperceptible texture.  For a fresh, clean feeling, there are three BARBIERE shampoos that effectively protect against pollution and keep hair shiny, thick and luxurious: Mild Shampoo, Thickening Shampoo and Illuminating Shampoo. Acqua di Parma has developed the Defining Cream, Modelling Clay and Fixing Wax to look flawless all day long in just a few simple steps and with easy-to-use formulas: three different ways to style hair. The modern interpretation of a long tradition, BARBIERE is the quintessence of the Italian shaving ritual. Its innovative formulas are designed speci cally for the different stages of personal grooming: shaving, after shaving, beard care, facial treatment and now the new haircare and styling line. Hair care is fundamental for de ning facial appearance, harmonising perfectly with shaving or beard trimming and skin care. And so the BARBIERE universe has been enriched with six different formulas especially for men’s hair. Acqua di Parma selects the best ingredients and creates a line of synergistic compositions. Just like the other products in the BARBIERE collection, hair care and styling also offer a satisfying sensorial experience. A fresh, radiant fragrance of Colonia and textures that are light, rich, consistent or impalpable according to the purpose for which the formula is intended.   MILD SHAMPOO A shampoo expressly designed for everyday use. Its mild formula gently and thoroughly removes impurities, respecting the balance of skin and hair. With its light, transparent texture, it undoes environmental damage, protecting hair from smog and pollutants. Thanks to its conditioning agents, it nourishes skin and hair leaving it soft, lustrous and easy to comb. It should be massaged into the scalp and then rinsed with warm or hot water and, for those who like to take extra care, it can be applied with a comb and left in for a minute. Recommended for all hair types and skin types, including sensitive skin.   THICKENING SHAMPOO Taking care of your hair means making it stronger and healthier. With a formula that has a volumising effect, rich in active ingredients aimed at strengthening hair and ideal for everyday use too, the Thickening Shampoo works on the structure of e hair to revitalise and add body. Designed to ensure a delicate yet deep clean, delightful to the touch with its soft, creamy consistency, it respects the balance of sensitive skin too, effectively undoing any environmental damage. Recommended for all hair types, thanks to the conditioning agents in the formula, no conditioner is required. It should be applied to damp or wet skin and distributed and massaged evenly over skin and hair. For those who like to take extra care, it can be applied with a comb and left in for a minute.   ILLUMINATING SHAMPOO FOR GREY AND WHITE HAIR A shampoo with a pleasantly smooth consistency, speci cally for white and grey hair. The blue and violet pigments neutralise any yellow tones, making the colour bright and de ned. The formula acts on the scales of the hair, closing and compacting them, revitalising hair and giving it a shinier appearance. Suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin, it gently removes impurities and protects hair from pollution. For optimum performance, the Illuminating Shampoo should be distributed over the entire length of the hair, massaged and combed to facilitate the even action of the formula. Once applied, it should be left in for a minute before rinsing. It is recommended that the Illuminating Shampoo is used once or twice a week at most, alternating it with another BARBIERE shampoo, for complete hair care.   DEFINING CREAM The texture is light and creamy. A few simple strokes through the hair with a small amount of product are enough to obtain a natural style. The formula is designed to condition hair without drying or weighing it down and to eliminate static electricity. A Cream that is perfect for always feeling good and styling that can be easily shaped several times a day. Ideal for both long and short hair.   MODELLING CLAY Use this Clay for styling with a semi-structured, opaque effect that leaves hair soft and natural without drying. Its residue-free formula gives hair a medium hold that can be remodelled multiple times a day. Suitable for long and short hair, it should be applied with your ngers for a free, informal look or with a comb for a more de ned appearance.   FIXING WAX The ideal formula for de ned and elevated styling, giving hair a subtle shine and a hold that lasts throughout the day. Designed for all hair lengths, it does not dry or leave residue on the hair. It is recommended that the Wax is applied using a comb for the best style de nition. Apply the product directly to small locks of hair to achieve an even more structured look.   more on acquadiparma.com The BARBIERE universe is expanding with six new formulas specially developed for men's hair.

GUCCI releases Eyewear campaign for Spring & Summer

Accessories For its new Spring Summer eyewear advertising campaign, Gucci moved to the Amoeba Music Hollywood store in Los Angeles to pay homage to that staple of American ‘80s teen movies, the record and VHS rental store.Creative Director Alessandro Michele mines the colourful neon-lit setting of this archetypal hangout for youth culture to showcase the spirit of individuality. In this new campaign, the browsing customers suggest many narratives, and in their attitude of proud freedom speak of Gucci’s desire to encourage self-expression.   Chinese actress and brand ambassador Ni Ni stars once again in theHouse eyewear advertisingcampaign, and is joined for the second time by Kai, the South Korean singer, actor and dancer, member of the EXO boy band, and global male ambassador for Gucci eyewear.Models Delphi McNicol, Azu Nwogu and Jana Jonckheere also appear in the campaign. Shot by cult filmmaker and photographer Harmony Korine, the campaign presents candid portraits – in still and moving images – of individuals or couples within the rich setting of the record store with its stacks and shelves of vinyl, tapes, CDs and videos. The emphasis is on close-up crops that bring the eyewear to the fore – both Gucci optical glasses and sunglasses – while the busy and vibrant background, alive with pop-culture graphics, suggests the energy and excitement of the retro music scene. The film also pays homage to those days when the local record shop or video exchange would be a social nexus, with the narrative plot showing customers meeting up in the store and trying on the glasses, while browsing the tapes and CDs. more on gucci.com             Creative Director: Alessandro Michele Art Director: Christopher SimmondsPhotographer/Director: Harmony Korine Styling: Jonathan Kaye Hair Stylist: Alex BrownsellMake Up: Thomas de Kluyver and Gao Jian For its new Spring Summer eyewear advertising campaign, Gucci moved to the Amoeba Music Hollywood store in Los Angeles to pay homage to that staple of American ‘80s teen movies, the record and VHS rental store.Creative Director Alessandro Michele mines the colourful neon-lit setting of this archetypal hangout for youth culture to showcase the spirit of individuality.

Lacoste Fall & Winter 2020-2021

Fashion Week Held at the Tennis Club de Paris, the Lacoste Autumn Winter 2020 runway show is the third act in creative director Louise Trotter’s intimate dialogue with the bold spirit of René Lacoste. A powerhouse on and off the tennis court, René’s unrelenting thirst for excellence, his dedication and verve was matched by none other than his wife Simone Thion de la Chaume – herself a champion golfer. Together, they reflected the very definition of a sporting power couple. Today Louise Trotter celebrates the harmonies in their contrasts, and the beautiful ricochet of references between her sport and his. By applying modern technology to the sartorial aplomb of a century ago, a fresh sense of sportif style rises to the fore. Future classics are imbued with the timeless élan of Lacoste’s French heritage.    Designed for elegance and performance - at leisure or play - the collection exudes a consummate and athletic ease. Lacoste green and navy are joined by clay court browns, spearmint, sky blue, candy pink, orange, lemon and tan, in a lively palette that recalls our collective memories of weekend tournaments, friendly matches, and the off-duty uniforms of the sporting elite. Comfort and ease is the luxury of today: bringing the focus closer to the body, sports blazers and trousers are tailored in technical jersey and shell knits and brushed pullovers play with the structures and scale of Prince de Galles, houndstooth and Vichy checks. Pulled from the lexicon of French pop culture, the Lacoste crocodile peeks out from jacket linings and a pastel all-over print, as tennis skirts in Japanese jersey are worn with racket and club print silk blouses, and boxy polo styles feature chunky knit collars, contrast plackets and leather trims.    Protective outerwear is revisited - the trench, duffel, car coat and hooded vareuse anorak are finished in sleek pairings of bonded jersey neoprene, soft alpaca or checked double face piped with leather, thermal topstitching, or archive ‘framis’ taping. Straight from the 1980s, the original T-Clip sneaker is updated in contrast pastel shades, whilst brogued golf lanyards and caddy bags are a tongue-in-cheek nod to Simone Lacoste’s lifelong talent.    Designed by René Lacoste, the original L1212 polo is elevated in a double-knit mercerized cotton. Premiering at the Autumn Winter 2020 fashion show, it is featured in a fly poster campaign at the Tennis Club de Paris worn by the season’s runway cast and photographed by Quentin De Briey.

Louis Vuitton Fall & Winter 2020-2021

Fashion Week Collisions of time. What if all of the innumerable eras that nourish fashion could come together in the here and now? And what if, in the present moment, we could confront history with contemporary freedoms, staged for the pure pleasure of fashion? A clash of styles, unexpected pairings, subverted functions... Dressing without protocol. Going from old to new and from unprecedented to patrimonial. Anachronism becomes an attitude. Testing one’s agility with respect to a wardrobe. This collection is like a sartorial tune-up in which personality takes precedence: everyone can pen their own history. The 200 characters in the historic grandstand are the work of Milena Canonero, Stanley Kubrick’s Designer of Costumes, who worked on “A Clockwork Orange”, “Barry Lyndon” and “The Shining”. Some 200 characters range from the 15th century to 1950. The music was composed by Woodkid and Bryce Dessner. The piece’s title, “Three Hundred and Twenty”, refers to the number of years between the various movements referenced in a baroque composition injected with minimalistic, repetitive musical verses. It resurrects Nicolas de Grigny, a contemporary of Bach who never won the recognition of his peers, and never played at the Louvre. In fitting with this clashing of times, today – centuries later – we are listening to Nicolas de Grigny at the Louvre. Collisions of time.

Givenchy Fall & Winter 2020 women's ready to wear collection

Fashion Week “My work is my body, my body is my work” – Helena Almeida The body language of powerful women intimates mysterious expressions of sensuality. It provokes a chain reaction and stirs a symphony of characters. Designed by Clare Waight Keller, the Givenchy collection for Autumn Winter 2020 carries a silver screen allure: harking back to the imperfect beauty of an elusive arthouse heroine. From the actress’ sultry gaze to the bodily gestures of human sculpture, lines are drawn between the gritty heyday of French cinema and musings on performance art. The collection punctuates Givenchy’s sartorial canon with a distinctly graphic story in a Mod palette blocked out in black, white and cherry red, tobacco, carnelian and cobalt. Raw cut and collaged fabrics liberate masterful volumes with an untamed elegance, as shirred blouses and knife-pleated shifts are bonded with mulberry silk crêpe, and pagoda shoulder cape and coat styles are cut in fine double-faced Melton. Tailoring is languid: high-waist flares piped with contrast tones, peak lapel blazers, and a reversible duster coat lined in smooth leather. Sculpted knits and plush faux furs hug the body in shadowy folds. Riffing on the apostrophe, the stripe and the square, patterns and embroideries adorn mid-century shapes in cascading pleats and embroideries, from liquid silver sequins to showers of plumage, tinsel, tassels and bugle beading. The Autumn Winter 2020 accessories collection sees a slim wedge or sandal laced up the ankle, and the Haute Couture ‘ombrelle’ hat return in soft felt. Articulated mobile pendants and pearls hang as body jewels. Designed by Clare Waight Keller, the GV3 returns in glossy spazzolato leather or tri-colour suede, and the Antigona Soft bagappears in its signature colors, wrapped in archive print silk foulards or inflated as a zipped and pleated pouch. more on givenchy.com   “My work is my body, my body is my work” – Helena Almeida The body language of powerful women intimates mysterious expressions of sensuality.

O'neill is ready for an endless Summer fuelled by nostalgia

Fashion With their signature Californian surf attitude and a fresh take on the fusion between sports and fashion, O’Neill is ready for an endless summer fuelled by nostalgia for SS20. Inspired by the Californian sun, the collection’s campaign and brand’s core message for the season promotes a joyful exploration of summer style, friendship, being young and of shared experiences. This continues O’Neill’s message that summer is more than just a season. It’s a feeling. The pursuit of life and good vibes in all forms is supported by O’Neill’s path of innovation with the O’Neill Blue line. An initiative to create a more sustainable approach to apparel. The result sees recycled plastic from around the beaches & shorelines be turned into high performance eco threads and yarns that are then used to create the line of board shorts, bikinis, t-shirts, dresses and sweatshirts. The continued collaboration with BIONIC YARN, REPREVE and ECONYL is one of O’Neill’s many sustainability efforts. As a result, 100% of the SS20 bikini collection is produced with sustainable fabrics. O’Neill manages to resignify the context in which we see ocean protection – showcasing a commitment to making a difference in the industry, whilst giving sustainable clothing personality and fun through a connection to modern art, bold colour use and abstract shapes. Throughout, O’Neill combines its innovative technology from their core water sports, such as the O’Neill Hyperdry with smart t and intersects it with fashion. Seen not only in the new line of swimwear that is inspired by athletic wear, but across the entire collection. O’Neill manages to take the modern surfer from board to beach effortlessly, putting them in vintage inspired resort looks that have been interpreted for the streets. Comprised of ve themes: Modern Retro, Athleisure, California Surf Lifestyle, Water & Sun, and O’Neill Blue – the collection of menswear, womenswear and childrenswear features wearable pieces that easily adapt for a life at the beach, or the city. Collection highlights see the 70’s mixed with a modern surf attitude. With a vintage colour palette & casual silhouette, the use of soft fabrics and prints in saturated tones is juxtaposed with the 90’s obsession that shines through elsewhere. O’Neill’s new collection is then set to appeal to a wide range of customers. O’Neill, where It’s Always Summer on the Inside.
