ARKET for Spring & Summer

Fashion The floral prints of ARKET’s spring 2020 draws inspiration from the island of Djurgården in central Stockholm. Covered with extensive stretches of oak forest and vibrant wildflower meadows, it is one of Stockholm’s greenest islands and one of its most beautiful parks. The floral motifs are based on botanical studies of flowers found on the island - tulips, peonies and hoary stock growing in its gardens, and a variety of foraged wild flowers from the spaces in-between. The prints are developed from field drawings, done on location last spring and ink-on-paper paintings of floral arrangements made in our design studio on Södermalm in Stockholm.  The print works as decorative motifs on fluid satin dresses as well as an all over print on denim and shirt-dresses and summer blouses. For that mini-me look, the floral print can also be found on baby bloomers and dresses as well as dresses for children. The print also appears on selected homeware items, such as pillow cases and trays. Available for purchase in all ARKET stores and online.

SAMSØE SAMSØE Spring & Summer 2020 Mid-Century's Modern collection

Fashion Week Building further on pre-Spring’s humancentric approach to fashion, where clean lines, high quality materials and the consideration of function converge, Spring/Summer 2020 sends a nostalgic nod to the Danish Modern design movement, characterised by these same guiding principles. As relevant today as ever, the soft modernism of Scandinavia plays out on a collection where cuts become looser for the warmer months, and elements of sportwear and workwear and their way into the everyday wardrobe. Looking to the era that gave us many of our modern wardrobe staples, the collection is lled with versatile pieces that remain sartorial building blocks: structured transitional jackets cut for aboxy  from tweedy fabrics or tactile velvet areminimally detailed with practical pockets; new renditions of the ubiquitous polo shirt are imbued with nostalgic details and cut for a closet from crisp blends; and oversized sweaters in thick ribbed knits with half-zip fastenings underpin the importance of well made clothing. Just like the design movement, new materials shape the collection’s styles: Samsøe Samsøe’s longstanding tradition of crafting garments from natural fabrics results in pieces that are celebrated as much for their quality as for their simple yet modern shapes. A trench coat for her is cut from structured linen blend and pared back to its purest form with gently rounded shoulders and raglan sleeves. Fusing workwear with streetwear, classic menswear is given utilitarian edge on cotton twill trousers, cut in a new, relaxed shape. Sustainable fabrics and blends also celebrate the shapes of the classics: the bowling shirt has an updated t so it feels in nitelymore modern, cut from soft tencel that falls ina liquid-like drape. Palazzo-style pants designedwith the working woman in mind are crafted inheavy crepe with a lustrous nish. And softlytailored shirts and blouses juxtapose sleek lines with organic shapes, using these new and natural blends to reimagine traditional styles. Purposely devoid of pattern, the collection’s singular standout is a lively bird print found in our archives and inspired by furniture designer Kay Bojesen’s iconic wooden decorations, printed on an ankle-grazing silk dress with shirred cuts. Stripes move away from varsity sensibilities to take on a more nostalgic feel, and an abundance of heritage checks reference the upholstery fabrics of the mid-century movement. Touched with the era’s signature coloursand rooted in nature, monk’s robe, midnight blue and desert sand are enlivened with misty rose and seaweed green. Blurring the lines between how pieces are worn, shirts become jackets, knits become teesand trousers and shorts resemble skirts at rstglance. It’s all about function — and wearing them with an air of studied nonchalance thatbe ts the modern urbanite. more on samsoesamsoe.com Building further on pre-Spring’s humancentric approach to fashion, where clean lines, high quality materials and the consideration of function converge, Spring/Summer 2020 sends a nostalgic nod to the Danish Modern design movement, characterised by these same guiding principles.

LIU JO beachwear for Spring & Summer 2020

Fashion A new collection, a new project. Liu Jo Beachwearis re-born in a new, important dimension, driven by a major upgrade in terms of fits and product quality: actually, as from Spring/Summer 2020, the range of swimsuits and accessories for the beach or the swimming-pool will be reorganised, now staking its all on updated styles and unique fits; these are efforts that cry out for the great personality of the collection and tell about an unusual, amazing product. The figure is enhanced in the name of the search for the perfect fit, which has been specially designed in every style; so, each single item has been designed for a woman who makes self-confidence her distinctive trait, in the name of a special balance where shiny touches, trendy influences and summer glamour live together on sexy fits and special finishes.   Firstly, the next season’s inspiration nods to the iridescent world ofmetallic materials: metal effects and glossy details shineon the collection’s items, where colourful metals play with small and big sequins in matching shades and where the ‘star’ print takes centre stage, sometimes scattered all over if matched with a logoed elastic band. Next to them, there are camaieu effects and animal prints in shades of lilac – paired with neutrals, green and Tropical– for a fresh touch of lightness and transparency, flounces and romantic details.   In the midst of the season, the prints get fresh and floral; the volumes get lighter and softer, the tropical versions are matched with details of tassels, chic stripes on cotton poplin– super-feminine details spiced up by fluorescent touches. Fluorescent is the buzzword in this inspirational world, where bursts of colours and an energetic attitude live on the one-piece swimsuits and bikinis that colour up the summer, to be worn with shorts, T-shirts and mesh dresses to stand out from the crowd.   Even the more “basic” styles have been completely renewed, and now they are chic, feminine and sophisticated: made from a new Lycra, the solid-colour styles are really the go-anywhere summer pieces, brightened by metallic and gold details, ribbons and trimmings.  A new collection, a new project. Liu Jo Beachwearis re-born in a new, important dimension, driven by a major upgrade in terms of fits and product quality: actually, as from Spring/Summer 2020, the range of swimsuits and accessories for the beach or the swimming-pool will be reorganised, now staking its all on updated styles and unique fits; these are efforts that cry out for the great personality of the collection and tell about an unusual, amazing product.

New Heritage Watches With Vintage Flair

New Heritage Watches With Vintage Flair

Watches Inspired by historical Minerva classic wristwatches from the 1940s and 50s and the spirit of neo- dandy style, Montblanc unveils three novelties within its Heritage product line, combining vintage aesthetics with distinctive colour associations and refined watch complications. The trend is for today’s stylish gentleman, fondly called neo-dandies, to be attentive to details that make a difference, whether it is the feel of a certain fabric, the cut of a jacket, the choice of colours, or the finishing touches to the ideal outfit. Genuinely passionate about sartorial details, these men master the art of being well dressed with flair and look for authenticity and aesthetic harmony, which can sometimes be anti-conformist. They embody the spirit of sophisticated elegance and are the essence of the Heritage product line. Paying tribute to historical and classic Minerva wristwatches from the 1940s and 1950s, theHeritage timepieces combine the elegance of watchmaking past with today’s bold design codes. The new models feature fully polished 40 mm and 42 mm cases, curved horns with facets, and are fitted with sapphire crystal glass boxes for an elegant vintage look. Reminiscent of the neo-dandy style, special attention has been paid to dials with distinctive colours, such as salmon, tobacco-brown, British-racing-green and they include technical finishes such as two-tone decoration, a domed-shape, and lacquer coatings that require dexterity and expertise to apply. Other details feature dots as indexes, curved Dauphine hands enhanced with SuperLuminova*, a rack minuterie with SuperLuminova small dots every five minutes, and old- school international payphone indications of 3, 6 and 9 minutes. In line with the collection’s spirit, the timepieces are adorned with Sfumato alligator straps of various colours from British-racing-green, to grey and tobacco-brown that complete the overall design. Like with all the Heritage timepieces, these new wristwatches are water resistant to 50 meters. *SuperLuminova is a registered trademark which does not belong to Montblanc   Montblanc Heritage Manufacture Pulsograph Limited Edition 100 pieces The highlight of the Maison’s product line is the Heritage Pulsograph Limited Edition 100, atimepiece inspired by what collectors call the ‘doctor’s watches’, that were used by doctors in the past to check a patient’s heart rate. Following the launch of the Montblanc Heritage Pulsograph Limited Edition with a salmon-coloured dial, the Maison is now unveiling a brand-new model in an 18 K rose gold 40 mm case with a distinctive smoked tobacco-brown dial and matching Sfumato alligator strap, reinforcing the trendy vintage style. On the case back, the sapphire crystal reveals the high level of hand-finishing of the Montblanc Manufacture monopusher chronograph Calibre MB M13.21. This high-end movement is composed of a large balance wheel with 18 screws that beats at the traditional frequency of 18,000 A/H, a column wheel and horizontal coupling, the iconic V-shaped chronograph bridge whose designed was patented in 1912, and the emblematic hand-decorated Minerva arrow. To match the 18 K rose gold case and the tobacco-brown dial, the calibre MB M13.21 features rose gold-coated plate and bridges. The refined tobacco-brown dial features several vintage design codes from the 1940s and 50s: a domed smoked lacquered dial with “grainé” hour ring and sunray finishes, 18 K rose gold-coated luminescent Arabic numerals and dots for indexes, 18 K rose gold-coated luminescent dauphine hour and minute hands, 18 K rose gold baton-shaped hands for the seconds and the chronograph indications, rack minuterie, and old school international payphone indications of 3, 6 and 9minutes on the chronograph’s minutes counter. The timepiece comes with a matching tobacco-brown Sfumato alligator strap, completing the overall vintage design.   Montblanc Heritage Monopusher Chronograph Joining the Heritage product line is this new edition in stainless steel with a salmon-coloured dial. The Heritage Monopusher Chronograph is one of the technical pillars of Minerva savoir-faire, offering an accessibly-priced model at the centre of the collection. This timepiece features the latest chronograph design with a domed, salmon-coloured dial with black rhodium-coated Arabic numerals and dots for indexes. Other features include a blue rack minuterie, black rhodium- coated luminescent dauphine hands for the hours and minutes, and contrasting blued steel baton hands for the seconds and the chronograph indications, providing great visibility. A closer look at the minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock reveals an indicator for 3, 6 and 9 minutes – a vintage touch from the days when we used coin-operated telephones and needed to track the length and cost of a call. This timepiece comes in a 42 mm stainless steel case with polished and satin-finishes, curved horns, a domed sapphire glass box, and the distinctive Minerva Manufacture embossing on the case back. The timepiece is completed with a matching grey Sfumato alligator strap from the Richemont Pelletteria in Florence, Italy.   Montblanc Heritage Automatic The new Montblanc Heritage Automatic comes in 18 K yellow gold with a brand-new lacquered British-racing-green dial and matching Sfumato alligator strap for a vintage look. This new colour combination is enhanced by yellow gold details on the dial, including 18 K yellow gold-coated curved Dauphine hands that have been enhanced with SuperLuminova, along with applied Arabic numerals and dots for indexes that are also in yellow gold. Providing great flair, the dial has been lacquered – a technique that requires expertise and dexterity. The 40 mm case is fitted with a domed sapphire crystal and an elegant British-racing-green Sfumato strap from the Richemont Pelletteria in Florence, Italy. Like all the Montblanc Heritage Automatic models, the timepiece is powered by the Calibre MB 24.27, an automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve, and is water resistant to 50 metres.   Montblanc - A true watchmaker since 1858 Montblanc watchmaking is built on a unique set-up that brings two manufactures together, based in Le Locle and in Villeret, in the Swiss Jura mountains. The Montblanc watchmaking story began in 1858 when Mr. Charles-Ivan Robert founded a watch workshop in the Saint-Imier valley. This marked the beginning of the historic Minerva era. Already during the end of the 19th century, pocket watches started to gain some fame for their crownwinding system. But the Minerva Manufacture’s most flourishing years brought them to be recognized as one of the 20th ’s century leading specialists in professional watches (stopwatches & chronographs) for measuring small intervals of time with high precision. Today, Montblanc timepieces continue the journey of Minerva’s over 160-year legacy in four fine watchmaking explorations: the Montblanc Star Legacy, the Montblanc 1858, the Montblanc TimeWalker and the Montblanc Heritage product lines, all linking the past and the present through design, style and technical innovation.   available from June 2020 on.   more on: montblanc.com   Inspired by historical Minerva classic wristwatches from the 1940s and 50s and the spirit of neo- dandy style, Montblanc unveils three novelties within its Heritage product line, combining vintage aesthetics with distinctive colour associations and refined watch complications.

New collaboration between Koche & Eastpak

New collaboration between Koche & Eastpak

Accessories In their first-time collaboration, Eastpak and KOCHÉ are celebrating the crossover of sports, street culture, and craftsmanship. The collection deconstructs some of Eastpak’s classic designs, reimagining them in the hexagonal patch style of a soccer ball. Shaped by an athletic aesthetic, the four-style collection features stand-out stitching and a vibrant mix of fabrics. Three colorways include the KOCHÉ Black patchwork of different black fabrics, the soccer jersey-inspired KOCHÉ Multi, and the embossed PU KOCHÉ Snake.   We had a chance to speak with Christelle Kocher about the collaboration:   Can you tell us more about the Koché x Eastpak collection? What was the inspiration behind the collection? The KOCHÉ x EASTPAK collection was based on patchwork and football imagery. I played with the hexagons that you find on soccer balls. It is very graphic patterns.   Can you tell us more about the inspiration behind the Snakeskin print? And behind the football print? It was fun to use the codes of luxury with snakeskin for a popular product. Of course, it is fake skin. It is interesting to mix codes of two different universes: rare and luxurious skins with popular bags inspired by soccer culture!   Why did you choose to work with these styles? And which one is your favorite piece? I love the KOCHÉ x EASTPAK Padded Pak’R. The best of our two brands in one bag.   Is this collaboration a direct reference to your SS20 collection? Definitely yes! The pieces were shown on my Spring Summer 2020 show during Paris Fashion Week. They are 100% part of my world, 100% part of my collection. However, I feel that they are kind of easy to wear with a lot of outfits. They are not reserved for a certain period of the year or season.   Did you design the apparel collection and the Eastpak accessories together or was the apparel collection already created? The 2 collections evolved in parallel. It was important for me. This is how I see collaborations. It must be organically linked, otherwise it does not work. In their first-time collaboration, Eastpak and KOCHÉ are celebrating the crossover of sports, street culture, and craftsmanship. The collection deconstructs some of Eastpak’s classic designs, reimagining them in the hexagonal patch style of a soccer ball. Shaped by an athletic aesthetic, the four-style collection features stand-out stitching and a vibrant mix of fabrics. Three colorways include the KOCHÉ Black patchwork of different black fabrics, the soccer jersey-inspired KOCHÉ Multi, and the embossed PU KOCHÉ Snake.   We had a chance to speak with Christelle Kocher about the collaboration:   Can you tell us more about the Koché x Eastpak collection? What was the inspiration behind the collection? The KOCHÉ x EASTPAK collection was based on patchwork and football imagery. I played with the hexagons that you find on soccer balls. It is very graphic patterns.   Can you tell us more about the inspiration behind the Snakeskin print? And behind the football print? It was fun to use the codes of luxury with snakeskin for a popular product. Of course, it is fake skin. It is interesting to mix codes of two different universes: rare and luxurious skins with popular bags inspired by soccer culture!   Why did you choose to work with these styles? And which one is your favorite piece? I love the KOCHÉ x EASTPAK Padded Pak’R. The best of our two brands in one bag.   Is this collaboration a direct reference to your SS20 collection? Definitely yes! The pieces were shown on my Spring Summer 2020 show during Paris Fashion Week. They are 100% part of my world, 100% part of my collection. However, I feel that they are kind of easy to wear with a lot of outfits.

Accessories Since 1966, Vans has stood as a champion of individuality and self-expression. The brand’s commitment continues with the release of sensory inclusive footwear designs as part of the Autism Awareness Collection. With this project, Vans celebrates the unique aspects of all people. Designed specifically with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in mind, the ultra-comfortable footwear collection is offered with sensory-inclusive elements including a calming color palette and design features that focus on the senses of touch, sign and sound. A portion of the proceeds from Vans’ Autism Awareness Collection will benefit the A.skate Foundation, which introduces skateboarding to kids with Autism through acceptance, therapy and education. The Vans Autism Awareness Collection will be available this March. To be more inclusive to common sensory sensitivities, Vans worked with the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards to create designs utilizing Vans ComfyCush technology for all day comfort and ease of wear for adults, kids and toddlers. The ComfyCush Old Skool is the first in the collection with blue suede uppers, Checkerboard adorned with red velvet hearts and a special message on the backs of each heel. Vans ComfyCush Slip-On PT has been outfitted with a squishy check upper in a cool-toned grey with a heel-pull for easy-on capabilities. A second ComfyCush Slip-On PT focuses on sight to feature a holographic water printed upper and blue twill sidewalls. A final ComfyCush Slip-On PT with white canvas uppers is adorned with LOVE adorned on one foot and VANS on the other and is finished with a fuzzy tactile blue heart in support of ASD. Made exclusively for kids and toddlers, the all-new ComfyCush New Skool V features a rubber toe cap with added vamp overlay for durability, a single strap hook-and-loop closure for equal tightness and fit, pull tab for ease of entry, and a foam padded collar and ComfyCush bottom unit for ultimate comfort. Rounding out the Vans Autism Awareness Collection is an assortment of short and long sleeve tees for kids that showcase graphic treatments in cool, calming color palettes. With this collection, Vans will donate a minimum of $100,000 of its proceeds to A.skate, an organization that allows children with autism to be a part of the social world through skateboarding. A.skate holds clinics for children on the spectrum at no cost to the families, provides grants to children with autism for skateboarding gear, as well as promote awareness and educates families about the therapeutic benefits of skateboarding.

Filling Pieces release new skate-inspired Spate silhouette

Fashion The Spate is the latest offering within the brand’s Signature footwear collection and is described by its creator as “a contemporary twist on a traditionally modest design”. Influenced by the fluid motion of skateboarding, the campaign toys with perspective as we know it. Vanishing points lost as new angles are created. Shadows appear to disrupt the illusion, pinning the focus firmly back on the subject. Crafted from Filling Pieces’ classic matt-Nappa or suede colour combinations, the Spate incorporates design elements from several well-known styles within the Signature collection. A perforated toe cap, woven branding and contrasting mesh heel collar attribute to a more sporty appearance, whilst signature luxury elements including the leather lining and hand-finished detailing remain as standard. Filling Pieces’ SS20 campaign celebrates the concept of family in all its forms - not limited to the biological and highlighting the kinship between friends, collectives and communities united by their diversities. The Spate has been designed as a style to appeal to all - continuing the brand’s ethos of bridging-the-gap between cultures and societies.   Videography @felix_aaron Photographer @luckarsten Models @jasonharderwijk @lisrutten Assistance @johnathanbaena MUAH @laurayard The Spate is the latest offering within the brand’s Signature footwear collection and is described by its creator as “a contemporary twist on a traditionally modest design”.
