Filling Pieces open their first permanent store in Amsterdam

Fashion Located in the heart of Amsterdam’s 9 Streets, Filling Pieces’ first permanent retail store offers a carefully curated, tangible brand experience.     The vision of the brand’s Art Director, Daniele Misso, the store has been designed to function as a creative hub and pays homage to its predecessor: the beautiful and avant-garde bookstore, Mendo. The space is intended as an interactive environment to exchange ideas and experiences between people from different backgrounds and growing communities.     “We are showcasing more than just products, curating different art from our inner-circle friendship group of artists, using our retail space as a meeting place for our community.” - Guillaume Philibert, Founder & Creative Director, FP.   Filling Pieces has once again commissioned designer Johan Viladrich for custom fittings, having previously designed the Paris showroom installation for the brand’s AW20 collection. Beyond the latest collections and exclusive product offerings, artistic collaborations merge here with product display, to create a new experience in retail. Periodically, the store will feature the work of international artists of various disciplines, providing a platform to express their interpretations and vision of society outside of conventional institutions such as art galleries and museums. For the opening, a digital reproduction of Alexandros of Antioch’s sculpture Venus de Milo is displayed. Through photogrammetry (a process mainly used for 3D scanning), Swedish artist, Mikaela Steby Stenfalk uses the 62,000+ images found under the hashtag #venusdemiloto merge together, forming a new digital original. Mikaela reflects upon reproduction and archival processes in the age of the internet, as well as our growing relationship to digital landscapes and ties to public life. The brand plans to open a larger flagship store and brand experience closer to the end of 2020, with hopes to expand to other international key cities in the next years to come.     Visit the store at the Berenstraat 11,1016GG in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Officially opened from: 17th August.

In conversation with Yoon Ambush

Accessories A Roman luxury brand, a young and talented Tokyo-based designer and the most famous snake in the world. Bvlgari and Yoon, the brilliant woman at the forefront of a new wave of female designers, introduce “Serpenti Through the Eyes of Ambush”, a limited-edition handbags and accessories collection born out of the exciting special collaboration.   Writing another inspired chapter of the “Serpenti Through the Eyes Of” series, which kicked off in 2017, the Ambush x Bvlgari collection presents an unprecedented interpretation of the timeless Serpenti Forever bag, the Roman Maison’s unquestionable icon of glamour.   Grown up with pop culture, which moulded her open mind and diverse creativity, Yoon is famed for her real-life inspired creations with high-end touch. Today she challenges herself with a new venture: “For this capsule collection I wanted to express the bold and contemporary character of Serpenti. Snakes are wondrous and fascinating creatures of nature but with Bvlgari they also became a symbol of glamour in constant evolution. Natural beauty meets human creation, all guided by a contemporary aesthetic.”     We had a delight speaking to Yoon about the collaboration.     When did you first have interest for fashion? How did your career in fashion start and what were the beginning like?   I came into Fashion by accident by being a club kid. It was intended when I started, but each road and each open door led me to where I am today. Not having an education and training in Fashion was not easy initially, but like any other job, you learn the most on the job, not at a school memorizing, so I did have my share of hard work and persistence to get to where I am today.       Tell us more about your new exciting collaboration with Bvlgari for a special Serpenti bag capsule collection. / 5. How did the collaboration with Bvlgari start and what is the inspiration behind the coming collection?   I received a Bulgari Avrora Award in 2018. The Awards celebrates women and Bulgari wanted to do a collab with a women designer on their new project so they reached out to me. While I was researching about Serpenti and snakes, I came across these fantastic images of Tree Python of Southeast Asia. I couldn't believe that there were such beauties in the wild. The colors came from Tree Pythons as well.  At glance, you would think it’s artificial, but it’s fascinating to know that these vivid tones exist in the wild. I wanted to be inspired by the beauty of nature.     What are the new elements of the coming collection, and key details you are working on to make it unique?    It was essential to express the beauty of snakes and capture it in a more approachable and lively way so I made the Serpenti head wrapped in same leather to make it more adorable.  Also padded the bag to give more fluid and plush vibe     How are you putting your stamp in the collection, with what notes of your creativity and DNA?   I brought the playful side of me to align into celebrating the beauty of Serpenti motif. Snakes are beautiful, mysterious, and magical. Bulgari gave me lots of freedom to have fun. While I kept the code for the house, I also waned to see how much I could push to bring something new that Bulgari has not seen before to be table as well.     When will the collection be released?   In the beginning of September.      Are you working on any more exciting collaboration with Bvlgari?   Would love to work on jewelry with in the future!  A Roman luxury brand, a young and talented Tokyo-based designer and the most famous snake in the world.

Filling Pieces presents the new collection for Spring & Summer 2021

Filling Pieces presents the new collection for Spring & Summer 2021

Fashion At a time when specific circumstances push us to create in alternative ways such as computer-generated animations, Filling Pieces presents its Spring-Summer 2021 collection with a physical pre-recorded runway show.      After months of reduced physical interaction and social distancing, human connection is a luxury in demand. Our support systems have either been solidified or renewed and it is clear that we cannot live without them.      In the images from the video, spaces and perspectives become confused, contradictory and transformational thanks to the use of the opaque, flowing drapes. Models fuse with ‘worlds within worlds’, symbolising the shift to a new state of mind.     SS21 is designed with the intention of reuniting and strengthening the collective bond we have as people, finding unity in diversity. There are lots of subtle details throughout the collection, symbolic of the theme including the crowd print and the handshake - one of the new signature logos of FP.      What makes Filling Pieces and our founder successful is the support you receive from your family and friends and brands you associate with. Supporting your local network and giving them the strength to progress and grow up together is why the theme 'Support' fits so perfectly with the values of Guillaume and the company.  --- RTW Designer, Dieylane Cisse.     From footwear to ready-to-wear, eyewear, bags and accessories - the bigger the collection, the bigger the family and the larger the support.  Although most of the pieces are designed with a unisex approach, the SS21 collection introduces a more feminine focus.  Crafted in Amsterdam, Paris and Portugal.       CREDITS: Art Direction : Daniele Misso (@daniele.misso), Marije Seijn (@marije.seijn), Matthias Weber (@matt_weber) Photography: Walter Pierre (@walterpierrephotography) Videography Director : Danny Griffioen (@danny.griffioen) from That’s What She Set (@thats.what.she.set) Cinematographer : Zeeger Verschuren (@zeegerverschuren)   MUAH : Laura Yard (@laurayard) At a time when specific circumstances push us to create in alternative ways such as computer-generated animations, Filling Pieces presents its Spring-Summer 2021 collection with a physical pre-recorded runway show.      After months of reduced physical interaction and social distancing, human connection is a luxury in demand.

Balenciaga will open its newest flagship in Rome

Fashion On August 4th, 2020, Balenciaga will open its newest flagship, a largescale store in the heart of Rome. BALENCIAGA PIAZZI DI SPAGNA—located at the foot of the Spanish Steps—introduces a location-specific concept to showcase men’s, women's, and kids’ ready-to-wear, bags, shoes, and accessories on two full floors.     Glass doors and windows facing the street are curved inward, creating convexspaces that reveal a wider view of the store’s interior from outside. Inside, roomsopen up to one another, each a variation of the theme that came before it. The floors of each room are made from a variety of codified textures: asphalt-like, interlocking concrete tile, and logo-carved carpet in cement grey and theatrical red.     Influenced by the culture of preservation and drama that surrounds this newest flagship, its walls are partially obscured behind glass or red curtains, weaving elements from a museum or stage into the brand signatures. Industrial mirrors, lacquered metal, and extruded aluminium round out other details that transpose the signatures of public, civic architecture into a private, retail space.       BALENCIAGA PIAZZA DI SPAGNA ROME 67-69 Piazza di Spagna 00187 Roma Italy On August 4th, 2020, Balenciaga will open its newest flagship, a largescale store in the heart of Rome.

Gucci Fall-Winter 2020-2021 Advertising Campaign, The Ritual

Gucci Fall-Winter 2020-2021 Advertising Campaign, The Ritual

Fashion Titled The Ritual, the new Gucci advertising campaign follows the reversal of perspective that characterized Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s vision for the Fall-Winter 2020-2021 show, where the audience was invited to witness what goes on behind the scenes, behind the curtains. Further exploring the idea of looking at things from a different point of view, new possibilities opened up.     Consequently, models were asked to be the authors of the new campaign and were given the brief to simply inhabit the looks in their daily lives from the comfort of their own, intimate spaces and record themselves doing so. The lens is thus that of this eclectic cast of characters, and the result is a deeply personal, honest and candid series of self-portraits.     With freshness and authenticity, these hyper-real images depict one’s home as a personal creative laboratory, whose inhabitants are free to have fun and experiment using their imagination: they acted as photographers and storytellers, producers and scenographers. The different formats echo the array of tools used, ranging from disposable cameras to camera phones, adding to the variety of results and telling of individual decisions about how the protagonists wish to be seen.     “I decided to let the clothes travel towards the houses of the cast of models – the characters that have embodied my stories for years; individuals I chose precisely, over time, for their uniqueness that usually brings my campaigns to life. I asked them to represent the idea they have of themselves, to go public with it, shaping the poetry that accompanies them. I encouraged them to play, improvising with their life”, Alessandro Michele explained.   By ceding control, a new type of creativity is unleashed. So here’s the Gucci community, knitting, gardening, sunbathing, brushing teeth, hanging out on the roof of a building, jumping off a bed, with pets, even playing darts while skateboarding indoors on a polished wooden floor.  Though the scenarios are every day, the images are anything but, showing how Gucci’s magical Romanticism inspires a peculiar, emotional dreamlike quality.   Surprisingly, a certain consistency fosters the whole visual experiment of self-portraits and their footage, a consistency that speaks of an infusion of Gucci, even from afar.   #GucciTheRitual   Credits:   Creative Director: Alessandro Michele Art Director: Christopher Simmonds Photographer/Director: models Hair stylist: models Make up: models Titled The Ritual, the new Gucci advertising campaign follows the reversal of perspective that characterized Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s vision for the Fall-Winter 2020-2021 show, where the audience was invited to witness what goes on behind the scenes, behind the curtains.
