MATTHEW M. WILLIAMS INTRODUCES GIVENCHY VENTURE BAGS FOR MEN

Men Creative Director Matthew M. Williams presents Givenchy Venture, a line of savvy, highly adaptable bags that give the Givenchy man freedom to express his individual style.     Embodying the designer’s flair for mixing textures and hardware, two Givenchy Venture backpacks and belt bags present a unique allure when worn alone or in personalized pairings.     While based on favorite House shapes and signatures, Givenchy Venture plays up contrast, fusing luxury materials with a utilitarian attitude. An essential backpack inspired by the runner’s pack is fitted with a comfortable harness and a zip-off pouch that may be replaced by the roomier, squared Givenchy Venture belt bag. Worn together or separately, these components incorporate thoughtful design details that make it possible to add on other items such as Givenchy’s new water bottle; at the base of the pack are webbing straps that can be used to secure other essentials, like a blanket or outerwear.     Each shape in the Givenchy Venture set comes in black nylon as well as in elevated versions that may be composed to create modern mix-and-match statements. The elevated backpack in the season’s padded, grooved lambskin is inspired by vintage car seats and was created using intricate high-frequency wave processes. The belt bag comes in nylon or in croc-embossed leather.     For optimal versatility and an ultra-modern allure, the Givenchy Venture backpack may be worn in front or in back; the belt bag doubles as a crossbody piece.     The Givenchy Venture backpack set in black nylon is priced at 2,790 euros; the backpack in padded leather at 2,290 euros; and the belt bag in croc-embossed leather at 1,990 euros.     Givenchy Venture accessories will be available starting September 15th in Givenchy stores worldwide and on givenchy.com.

Style Meets Statement: Montblanc UltraBlack Collection Launch

Events Luxury Maison hosted the global launch of Montblanc UltraBlack, its first complete cross-category collection united by an all-black design theme at the Feuerle Collection in Berlin. Located in an imposing concrete bunker transformed into a minimalist gallery space, the Feuerle Collection opened its doors exclusively to Montblanc for the introduction of the new collection.     The immersive launch experience was inspired by the colour black, the absolute of colours, a statement of infinite beauty, core to the brand’s identity since the Maison’s inception in 1906, with ebonite as the main ingredient in the production of Montblanc’s original writing instruments, and one of only two colours in the company’s emblem, created in 1913.     VIP guests joined Montblanc CEO Nicolas Baretzki for a cocktail reception followed by a sit-down dinner, and a performance by Alessandro Ristori and the Portofinos. The new Montblanc UltraBlack pieces including the Montblanc UltraBlack Backpack, the Montblanc 1858 Geosphere UltraBlack Watch, Montblanc MB 01 UltraBlack Over-Ear Headphones and Montblanc UltraBlack Mini Folio were on display around the gallery space, in a play of darkness and light.     A celebration of the modernity of Montblanc’s most recognizable colour, Montblanc UltraBlack brings together with simplicity and timeless elegance multiple product categories from leather goods to writing instruments, fromwatches to new smart technologies. While unified by their black design, each product was carefully selected based on the everyday needs and mindset of those who leave a mark with everything they do, and follow their own path to success.     Montblanc UltraBlack Collection is available from September 2021 from Montblanc boutiques worldwide and online.

GCDS unveils the FW2122 Campaign "Trip Daily"

Fashion As Fall returns more chill than ever, GCDS unveils the FW2122 campaign.   Shot by Jack Bridgland in London, the brand’s FW22 range is an eye pleasing ensemble, starring ones-to-watch Cup Kase, Lucas Wrightand Cynthia Arrebola. Vibrating tanks, baggy denim, oversized footwear and dreamy maximalism: icy pinks and blues, “big carrot energy” hoodies and soft Alcantara suits and tracksuits.     With the GCDS name you know, and the fresh, frenetic, fun cartoons you love, the Fall/ Winter 2022 collection is all about vice and escape. On this trip, the global GCDS community will astral-project to a crossover all-stars event — where the pop cartoonish side lives in symbiotic harmony with the Made in Italy heritage, and faux-fur clogs coexist with Icon-woven Italian knitwear threaded throughout.     On the main stage this season: the iconic Moon Boot, remixed with lush faux-shearling and featuring a Hello Kitty collab. Across women’s and men’s apparel, GCDS has proudly collaborated with Alcantara S.p.A.– the Italian Company globally producing and marketing the Carbon Neutral and lightweight material lending a notable luxury and soft feeling to tracksuits and suits. Seasonal must-haves include huge “GCDS” drop earrings, a unique embellished body corset dress completely made of stones, while faux-fur handbags and hats show off your softer edge.     As a FW22 treat, GCDS brought along some of the most recognizable characters in the world from the Looney Tunes crew — like a larger-than-life rock Tweety maxi tee, plus detailed sketches of Porky and Daffy splashed on a wide-leg men’s denim jeans.     Photographer: Jack Bridgland Styling: Oliver Volquardsen Creative direction: Giuliano Calza Talent 1: Cyntia Arrebola Talent 2: Cup Kase Talent 3: Lucas Wright Make-up: Anne Sophie Costa Hair: Shiori Takahashi Nails: Angel’s Nailz As Fall returns more chill than ever, GCDS unveils the FW2122 campaign.   Shot by Jack Bridgland in London, the brand’s FW22 range is an eye pleasing ensemble, starring ones-to-watch Cup Kase, Lucas Wrightand Cynthia Arrebola. Vibrating tanks, baggy denim, oversized footwear and dreamy maximalism: icy pinks and blues, “big carrot energy” hoodies and soft Alcantara suits and tracksuits.     With the GCDS name you know, and the fresh, frenetic, fun cartoons you love, the Fall/ Winter 2022 collection is all about vice and escape.

Writing Tennis History: Montblanc X Djokovic 311

Accessories Montblanc unveils a new limited edition tote bag created to celebrate the achievements of tennis champion and philanthropist Novak Djokovic.     As part of its mission is to inspire people to leave their mark by doing what truly moves them, Montblanc is celebrating Novak Djokovic with a limited edition tote bag. The Montblanc x Djokovictote marks one of the tennis champion’s greatest record-breaking achievements, the moment he became the first player to retain the #1 spot on the ATP for more than 311 weeks on March 8th 2021, breaking all previous records.     Limited to just 311 pieces worldwide, the design of the environmentally-conscious black tote design features the number “311”, the champion’s signature and the Serbian flag. As a luxury Maison with a purpose, Montblanc will help to raise funds to support educational programs by teaming up with the Novak Djokovic Foundation as part of the launch of the product.     “Novak Djokovic is what Montblanc defines as a Mark Maker, an individual who embodies our brand ethos: What Moves You Makes You. He leaves his mark not only on the tennis court, but makes a significant impact off the court as well because he is always driven by his passions and a higher purpose. We are proud to support his commitment to childhood education, a cause that is also rooted in our own brand DNA,” says Nicolas Baretzki, Montblanc CEO.     Serbian-born Novak Djokovic holds the record for the most weeks at World No 1 in the ATP rankings, and boast an outstanding 82 career titles including most Australian Opens (9) and 3rd most Grand Slam championships (18). With his recent 2021 French Open win, Novak became the first man in the Open Era, and only the third in history, to win every major title twice. In addition to his many tournament victories, Djokovic is deeply committed to doing his part to ensure every child can have equal access to a quality preschool education. Djokovic’s belief that writing is a fundamental part of education that every child should have access to, perfectly aligns with Montblanc’s own beliefs and its origins in the culture of writing.     “Tennis may be my passion but helping give more children access to education is my purpose. I am fortunate to be able to do what moves me every day both on and off the court, not only inspiring tennis fans but making an impact that really matters. I am delighted that Montblanc is once again part of this journey with me,” says Novak Djokovic.     The black tone of the Montblanc x Djokovic tote evokes both the dominant ink colour of Montblanc the purveyor of writing instruments, while the blue design accents evoke the blue of the planet and oceans to emphasize the importance of sustainability. Material used in the creation of this eco-friendly capsule was carefully selected to minimize environmental impact. The contemporary design pairs fabric made from ECONYL®, a sustainable nylon yarn sourced from regenerated waste that can be recycled and recreated, with elegant leather made from eco-sustainable zero impact leather. The new tote features a zipped pocket on the front of the bag adding practical functionality.     Montblanc X Djokovic is available from August 2021.

As a luxury Maison with a purpose, Montblanc will help to raise funds to support educational programs by teaming up with the Novak Djokovic Foundation as part of the launch of the product.     “Novak Djokovic is what Montblanc defines as a Mark Maker, an individual who embodies our brand ethos: What Moves You Makes You. He leaves his mark not only on the tennis court, but makes a significant impact off the court as well because he is always driven by his passions and a higher purpose. We are proud to support his commitment to childhood education, a cause that is also rooted in our own brand DNA,” says Nicolas Baretzki, Montblanc CEO.     Serbian-born Novak Djokovic holds the record for the most weeks at World No 1 in the ATP rankings, and boast an outstanding 82 career titles including most Australian Opens (9) and 3rd most Grand Slam championships (18). With his recent 2021 French Open win, Novak became the first man in the Open Era, and only the third in history, to win every major title twice. In addition to his many tournament victories, Djokovic is deeply committed to doing his part to ensure every child can have equal access to a quality preschool education. Djokovic’s belief that writing is a fundamental part of education that every child should have access to, perfectly aligns with Montblanc’s own beliefs and its origins in the culture of writing.     “Tennis may be my passion but helping give more children access to education is my purpose. I am fortunate to be able to do what moves me every day both on and off the court, not only inspiring tennis fans but making an impact that really matters. I am delighted that Montblanc is once again part of this journey with me,” says Novak Djokovic.     The black tone of the Montblanc x Djokovic tote evokes both the dominant ink colour of Montblanc the purveyor of writing instruments, while the blue design accents evoke the blue of the planet and oceans to emphasize the importance of sustainability. Material used in the creation of this eco-friendly capsule was carefully selected to minimize environmental impact. The contemporary design pairs fabric made from ECONYL®, a sustainable nylon yarn sourced from regenerated waste that can be recycled and recreated, with elegant leather made from eco-sustainable zero impact leather. The new tote features a zipped pocket on the front of the bag adding practical functionality.     Montblanc X Djokovic is available from August 2021. For more information visit www.montblanc.com
