GUCCI presents the new eyewear collection

Accessories Gucci presents a new limited-edition eyewear collection exclusive to Gucci.com, which is characterised by bold detachable chains that dangle from the glasses’ temples, displaying logoed “earrings”. This innovative idea stems from Gucci’s belief that people should be able to express character and personality through their clothing and accessories, and is typical of Gucci’s unconventional approach, transforming eyewear by adding an unexpected element of playfulness.  Three limited-edition sunglasses styles are available, and each comes in two different colours. The availability is truly restricted, with only 100 pairs of each version being made. Two of the frames are more conventionally feminine in their design, while the third is more masculine, though in reality this selection is intended to have a gender-neutral appeal, in keeping with Gucci’s aesthetic. All models have temples that look like shiny Endura Gold chains, and the actual chains attached to the “earrings” fix onto these.     One style has an oversized butterfly frame in shiny Endura Gold and comes with shiny pink mother-of-pearl earrings and a solid brown lens, or shiny black earrings and a solid yellow lens. A second model has a shiny black thick squared frame, shiny white mother-of-pearl earrings and a double gradient smoke/pink lens; the same style also comes with a shiny black and ivory zebra pattern frame in acetate created exclusively for Gucci, matching earrings and a solid red lens. The third model is an aviator style with a thick frame in shiny black, with matching earrings and a solid grey lens; this style also comes with a shiny transparent light yellow-and-brown frame, matching earrings and a solid green lens. The collection has its own dedicated packaging: a pink velvet and red glasses case and a red carry pouch. A label in the case specifies that these sunglasses belong to a limited edition, exclusively created for Gucci.com.  To promote the collection, Gucci has shot a campaign in and around a sunlit swimming pool, and on a beach. The models featured display their carefree, uninhibited attitude by jumping into the water of the pool fully clothed. Pictured singly, or in pairs, often blowing pink bubble gum bubbles, Gucci’s cast of distinctive-looking male and female characters are clearly enjoying the decorative, free-swinging earrings attached to their sunglasses.     The styles will be available exclusively on Gucci.com, worldwide from April 30th 2020.    Campaign Credits   Creative Director: Alessandro Michele Art Director: Christopher SimmondsPhotographer: Mark Peckmezian Styling: Emma Wyman Hair Stylist: Alex Bronswell Make Up: Thomas de Kluyver Gucci presents a new limited-edition eyewear collection exclusive to Gucci.com, which is characterised by bold detachable chains that dangle from the glasses’ temples, displaying logoed “earrings”. This innovative idea stems from Gucci’s belief that people should be able to express character and personality through their clothing and accessories, and is typical of Gucci’s unconventional approach, transforming eyewear by adding an unexpected element of playfulness.  Three limited-edition sunglasses styles are available, and each comes in two different colours.

The house of Givenchy celebrates the Antigona family of bags

The house of Givenchy celebrates the Antigona family of bags

Accessories This Fall, Givenchy celebrates the 10th anniversary of its iconic Antigona handbag by unveiling the Antigona Soft, a supple, more relaxed version of its elder sister.     Inspired by the heroine of Greek mythology, the now-classic Antigona, which debuted for Fall-Winter 2010, reinterpreted the House’s signature Boston shape and quickly became a House signature. Its architectural, rigid construction featured a tension between feminine and masculine allure — a duality that defines the Givenchy aesthetic. Today, this timeless modern style has grown into a full-fledged collection of accessories for women and men. There’s a clear family resemblance in the Antigona Soft. Like its elder sister, it comes in the same colorways and is embellished with bold zippers and a distinctive pentagonal patch.   Yet the Antigona Soft gamely plays on contradiction. Building on Givenchy duality, it offers a counterpoint to the original Antigona by blending sleek lines with suppleness. To the structured, graphic statement of a classic, the Antigona Soft replies with serene languor. Like a favorite leather coat, the Antigona Soft conveys a versatile, second-skin sensuality. Crafted in smooth calfskin, it tempers the Antigona’s signature architecture with a more fluid, androgynous appeal. Its subtle slouchiness speaks with the quiet confidence of an embrace, contrasting volume with purity of line. Inviting, enveloping straps allow the Antigona Soft to move seamlessly from day bag to weekender. Stylish and down-to-earth, the Antigona Soft comes in medium and large formats, with an ample central compartment featuring dual zip closures with signature bombé zip pulls, an inner pocket for storing cards, side straps with turn-lock fastenings, two top handles, and a removable shoulder strap for versatility of wear. A scaled-down version likewise accommodates all the essentials, with a zipped compartment, a card pocket and an adjustable, removable strap to adapt to three styles of wear. Both the Antigona and the Antigona Soft come in timeless black, white, pearl gray, aubergine and midnight blue as well as a seasonal palette of candy pink, military green and ice blue. Directional variations include styles in vintage leather with hand-placed studs; with embroidered, printed stripes; with a lustrous gradient gold metallic finish on black leather, and a version in woven cord and leather.     Retail prices: from 1,450 euros for the Antigona Soft and from 1,290 euros for the classic Antigona.

A new reality asks for a new sneaker

Accessories On releases the Cloudnova, a sneaker built with performance technology. It’s what made the sneaker in the first place. “Performance usedto borrow from fashion; now fashion borrows from performance.” says On Co-Founder David Allemann.     Fashion, sportswear and outdoor gear have been merging for a while. Our generation is blurring the boundaries between work, home, sports and play. Now, this new lifestyle is emerging for all at light speed. And a new reality is asking for a new type of all day comfort. On’s roots are in sports, performance, nature and design. Ten years ago in the Swiss Alps, three friends plotted to re-invent running and trail shoes. One of them a multiple time duathlon World Champion, the others product and design geeks. From its humble origins, On has acquired the fastest growing running community with more than 7 million fans worldwide. Athletes in On shoes are winning World Championships and Olympic Medals. And by exploring the very edge of technical innovation and design, On has been adopted by those who hit refresh and take their ideas and life into a new direction. “Today, the most inspiring people are in sneakers. We get the challenge and opportunityto re-invent how we work, explore nature, travel in small and big ways and spend time with our friends and families.”, says Allemann. The Cloudnova features On’s award-winning CloudTec® sole. Fully cushioned and agile, the feel is almost weightless. The sneaker is constructed as a sock and features On’ssignature Speedboard® - a molded plate that adds a spring to each step.   On's first limited Cloudnova drop will be released through a draw with the following online access. The Cloudnova will be launching in Black Eclipse and White Umber. Sign-ups will begin on April 30th 2020 and will close on May 6th 2020 at 11:59pm UTC.

Music and Youth provide hope in this uncertain times with Levi's

Music and Youth provide hope in this uncertain times with Levi's

Fashion I’m sitting in my apartment (where else would I be?) in the middle of week 7 of quarantine and I’mdreaming about live music. Wasn’t that fun? That sense of connection and togetherness, wedged too close together, trying to stake a good spot. Experiencing the immediacy and pure joy of music. Together. Together together – in the same space. Not like virtual together. Real together. Dancing, singing, jumping for joy. Celebrating! I’m holding out for that. I want that again. We’re doing the right thing – staying home, staying connected. But I think its ok to say I long for live music. And I know we’ll get back to it. When it’s safe and we can jump for joy without fear. As I think about live music, I can’t help but think wistfully about festival season. Levi’s always goes big at music festivals with Levi’s®Tailor Shops across the globe – featuring world class denim customization – its art really. Coachella is the biggest festival of all and so is our denim customization at Coachella. And our guest list. Last year our festival campaign, timed to launch during Coachella, featured Hailey Bieber as the face of the iconic 501. Nothing represents the fun of festival season like a 501 cutoff in the desert. This year I was so excited to revisit the magic with Hailey, with the addition of our friend Jaden. But in lieu of dancing in the desert, I’m left daydreaming about some of my favorite Coachella performances of the past (Janelle Monae, Lorde, Beyonce) while conjuring what would have been my new favorites from this year’s intended lineup – Ari Lennox? Frank Ocean? Well, there may not be any festivals but we’re launching the campaign anyway because we all deserve to dream a little. As I look at these images I’m reminded of our history – one mired in youthful optimism and progress. I’m reminded of photos from Woodstock in 1969 – billed as 3 days of peace and music. It was the epitome of activism, optimism and creativity. As Bob Haas (LS&Co. Chairman Emeritus and great-great-grand nephew of the company’s founder Levi Strauss) has said, “Levi’s is the embodiment of the energy and events of our time.” When the Berlin Wall came down, German youth stood atop it wearing Levi’s as a symbol of freedom and democratic inclusivity. Go to any Pride Parade around the world and you will find a Levi’s float and LGBTQ+ and their allies wearingLevi’s. It’s not an accident. Levi’s has always been the choice for those who dare to speak up and out, to use their voices, to fight for change, to hope for better days, more inclusion, more love, more joy. Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected official in California wore Levi’s as he fought for gay rights here in San Francisco. Artists with unwavering creativity and a bold vision – Georgia O’Keefe, Andy Warhol, and Keith Haring – all wore Levi’s. And musicians with original voices – yep, you guessed it. Levi’s. Debbie Harry, John Lennon, the Ramones, Bruce Springsteen, Kurt Cobain, Run DMC, Joan Jett, Elvis, Beyonce. The list goes on. Levi’s. Levi’s has always been a symbol of democratic inclusion and youth empowerment, the choice of those daring to push for a better tomorrow. Levi Strauss himself was the embodiment of this ideal. He left his home in (Bavaria) to seek a better life on the shores of California. He opened a dry goods store and donated the first of his profits to a local orphanage. As we look at today’s youth – this generation that is unapologetically demanding, creating, and pushing for the world they deserve to live in – it is clear that they are carrying forward a legacy. Make no mistake, young people are being hit hard during this crisis. Beyond not getting to experience seminal milestones like graduations and proms, they are graduating into tremendous economic uncertainty, their planned futures unclear for now. They are living at home with their parents when most would be breaking out on their own. They are on pause for the immediate future with incredible challenges ahead. But their optimism and sense of community and identity will carry them through. I see it in my own kids. My son is 19, a college student, an artist.He’s not afraid to be exactly the person he is. To claim his artist status. To express himself through art in a way that is so uniquely HIM. And he revels in being part of a larger artist community. They find strength in the collective. We could all learn from that. I’m sitting in my apartment (where else would I be?) in the middle of week 7 of quarantine and I’mdreaming about live music. Wasn’t that fun?

GUCCI releases Prefall 2020 campaign

GUCCI releases Prefall 2020 campaign

Fashion Infancy is a magic time of perfect harmony with the whole of creation; of pure innocence and absolute spontaneity. It is the realm of imaginary friends and pets - any pet, even a skunk or a frog - as best friends. Like an Arcadia, or a mythic era that will never be repeated, it lasts for a very short while, which is probably why its charm is eternally crystallized as the perfect moment to aspire to, no matter what. We would all love to be children again, with or without the knowledge acquired through adulthood.    The new Gucci advertising campaign is an ode to retrieved innocence, a return to the infant world, a call for a real engagement with nature and, with that, with life. It is simple and direct, just like infancy should be: a beautiful wild landscape bathed in gleaming light as the ambiance for a spontaneous interaction between a cast of characters and a group of wonderful fairy tale animals. That’s it, with the unexpected presence of swings and slides: perfect childhood pastimes usually not found in the wild.   Through the lens of Alasdair McLellan, a series of portraiture vignettes, as expressive as they are vibrant, take shape, depicting the beauty and the personalities of a group of men, women and their beloved animals. Deers, fawns, owls, blue birds, skunks, squirrels, frogs, hedgehogs, ducks and rabbits are featured across the images: spirit animals dialoguing with the subjects in ways that recall classic allegories and cartoons.    With its call to nature, the campaign is ultimately an invitation to enjoy the simple things in life. Sometimes, it just takes very little, or a burst of imagination, to find some balance. On a swing, maybe. Or, with a fawn.   #SoDeerToMe     Nature, wildlife and its denizens are particularly important to Gucci, which, since 2018, has been totally carbon neutral across the whole supply chain. In February 2020, Gucci joined The Lion’s Share Fund, a unique initiative raising much-needed funds to protect endangered species and their natural habitats. Animals appear in approximately 20 percent of all advertisements in the world, yet despite this, animals do not always receive the support they deserve. By donating 0.5% of its media spend every time an animal is featured in advertisements, as all the partners involved in The Lion’s Share Fund do, Gucci can give ongoing contributions to drive tangible on the ground results for this urgent cause.        Creative Director: Alessandro Michele Art Director: Christopher Simmonds Photographer/Director: Alasdair McLellan Hair Stylist: Paul Hanlon Make Up: Thomas De Kluyver Infancy is a magic time of perfect harmony with the whole of creation; of pure innocence and absolute spontaneity.

Exploring Morocco with Oumayma

Exploring Morocco with Oumayma

Travel We would like to introduce to you our new contributor Oumayma Elboumeshouli.   Oumayma is a fashion influencer and all-round creative from the Netherlands. She lives in between Amsterdam, The UAE and Marrakech. From a young age she knew what she wanted and pursued her dream of creating creative content and strategies for different kinds of brands. With her Arabic heritage she often uses the Moroccan scenery as a great source of inspiration. Oumayma knows how to tell a story and creates mind blowing images. Her style can be described as ‘urban chic’ as she knows how to combine high-end fashion with street style items. Oumayma has an eye for detail and a talent for styling, photography and art direction. Brands love to work with Oumayma as her content is a real piece of art. She is professional, driven, creative and carefully selects the brands she wants to work with.     I would like to dedicate my first article to my heritage: Morocco. A country that has a special place in my heart. After every visit I leave more inspired. I’m sharing some locations which are worth visiting when you are in Morocco.   RIAD EL FENN https://www.instagram.com/p/BvCdUocnPal/ One of my favorite places to stay in Marrakech is Riad El Fenn in the Medina. What I love most about this Riad is not only the location (which is super easy reachable by car) but also the surroundings. All the touristic attractions are a few minutes away on walking distance. Also the interior game of this Riad is super strong.   THE MEDINA https://www.instagram.com/p/B5Zz_UNBKaX/ If you want to experience the real authentic Morocco make sure to bring your most comfortable shoes and prepare yourself your long and inspiring strolls in the medina. It doesn’t matter how many times I have visited, I always manage to find some hidden gems such as authentic Moroccan restaurants and shops.   HOTEL MAMOUNIA https://www.instagram.com/p/BkVPF9qn0eU/ One of the most luxurious destinations in Morocco and hotels in Africa. Another favorite for me when it comes to having ‘me-time’. I love to visit the hotel just to enjoy some Moroccan tea and sweets in the famous garden. The hotel has also a selection of luxurious brand boutiques with the latest runway collections.    AGAFAY STONE DESERT https://www.instagram.com/p/B5Zz_UNBKaX/ When in Marrakech it is an absolute must see, to visit the Agafay stone dessert which is located 20 miles outside the city centre. Make sure to plan an entire day in the dessert or even spend the night. The Agafay desert has literally everything you desire in the middle of nowhere. For me as a creative it’s an absolute source of inspiration and a huge set to create content. Most people like to visit and do activities such as quad biking and camel rides.   HUGGING GOATS ON YOUR WAY TO ESSAOUIRA https://www.instagram.com/p/BvQ3iFKnU8w/ If you love goats, make sure to stop on the road when you’re on your way to Essaouira from Marrakech. You can spot different Argan trees with goats in it. Sometimes if you ask the farmer nicely they will let you hug one of the goats and have a photo moment with them just like I did.   LIKE A MOVIE STAR https://www.instagram.com/p/BpU5jx5iuxI/ I travel a lot to the south of Morocco because that is where most of my family lives. My dad was born In Ouarzazatte which is an absolute must visit when you’re on your way to the south. Another hidden gem is Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, a old town which is now mostly used as a movie set and decoration. The little town is 5 miles on your left before you reach Ouarzazatte.    SAHARA AROUND THE CORNER https://www.instagram.com/p/BpT7L4ai9iX/ Zaggoura, to me one of the most magical places in Morocco where you could see the skies full of stars in the night and enormous palmtree fields for the best dates. This city is also called the gate of the Sahara because it’s basically around the corner.   For more images check out her profile on instagram @oumaymaboumeshouli We would like to introduce to you our new contributor Oumayma Elboumeshouli.   Oumayma is a fashion influencer and all-round creative from the Netherlands. She lives in between Amsterdam, The UAE and Marrakech. From a young age she knew what she wanted and pursued her dream of creating creative content and strategies for different kinds of brands. With her Arabic heritage she often uses the Moroccan scenery as a great source of inspiration. Oumayma knows how to tell a story and creates mind blowing images. Her style can be described as ‘urban chic’ as she knows how to combine high-end fashion with street style items. Oumayma has an eye for detail and a talent for styling, photography and art direction. Brands love to work with Oumayma as her content is a real piece of art. She is professional, driven, creative and carefully selects the brands she wants to work with.     I would like to dedicate my first article to my heritage: Morocco. A country that has a special place in my heart. After every visit I leave more inspired. I’m sharing some locations which are worth visiting when you are in Morocco.   RIAD EL FENN https://www.instagram.com/p/BvCdUocnPal/ One of my favorite places to stay in Marrakech is Riad El Fenn in the Medina. What I love most about this Riad is not only the location (which is super easy reachable by car) but also the surroundings. All the touristic attractions are a few minutes away on walking distance. Also the interior game of this Riad is super strong.   THE MEDINA https://www.instagram.com/p/B5Zz_UNBKaX/ If you want to experience the real authentic Morocco make sure to bring your most comfortable shoes and prepare yourself your long and inspiring strolls in the medina. It doesn’t matter how many times I have visited, I always manage to find some hidden gems such as authentic Moroccan restaurants and shops.   HOTEL MAMOUNIA https://www.instagram.com/p/BkVPF9qn0eU/ One of the most luxurious destinations in Morocco and hotels in Africa. Another favorite for me when it comes to having ‘me-time’. I love to visit the hotel just to enjoy some Moroccan tea and sweets in the famous garden. The hotel has also a selection of luxurious brand boutiques with the latest runway collections.    AGAFAY STONE DESERT https://www.instagram.com/p/B5Zz_UNBKaX/ When in Marrakech it is an absolute must see, to visit the Agafay stone dessert which is located 20 miles outside the city centre. Make sure to plan an entire day in the dessert or even spend the night. The Agafay desert has literally everything you desire in the middle of nowhere. For me as a creative it’s an absolute source of inspiration and a huge set to create content. Most people like to visit and do activities such as quad biking and camel rides.   HUGGING GOATS ON YOUR WAY TO ESSAOUIRA https://www.instagram.com/p/BvQ3iFKnU8w/ If you love goats, make sure to stop on the road when you’re on your way to Essaouira from Marrakech.

Fashion Exclusive editorial captured by Nina Raasch. An editorial shot in the empty streets of a usually crowded Mallorca. The same girl, while wearing different looks, is duplicated in each picture. What appears to be a busy street scene, turns out to be a one-girl-story. While capturing the melancholy of an empty holiday summer town, it's a story about spending time with oneself and at the same time being content without constant company of others. fashion stylist: Charlotte Gindreau hair and make up artist: Sabina Pinsone model Tory @ Modelwerk Exclusive editorial captured by Nina Raasch.
