DAILY PAPER EXPLORES HARMONIZATION WITH ALIEN SPECIES IN THEIR END-OF-SEASON SS20 EDITORIAL

Fashion Earlier this year, Daily Paper’s Spring/Summer 2020 campaign imagined how a future society could build the foundations of a new world. The concept motivates us to examine our multiple identities as the continuation of our collective movement into another realm. Combining ancient and future knowledge, all species can have a concept of a home that is endless, inclusive and universal according to Daily Paper.     Shot by Amsterdam based photographer Lois Cohen and styled by Indiana Roma Voss, the end-of-season ‘Alien Luv’ editorial seeks to redefine our perceptions of alien species through the topics of family, love and community. The images examine the subjective nature of beauty, and how our definition of physical attractiveness changes over time and between cultures. The editorial is accompanied by a short film by director Folkert Verdoorn, that explores the wider shifts in societal norms as alien species become integrated with humans and serves as a commentary on our vision towards race and culture. Leaving it up to the viewer to decide if we as humans, can allow our past mistakes to define us or if we can shift our consciousness, love each other and create a better future for all.       PHOTO CREDITS  Creative direction: @loisycohen & @indianaromavoss Photographer: @loisycohen Agent / Producer: @celinebrill at Cake Production manager: @victorgriffioen Production assistant: @nikedolman Photography assistant: @hyungbalkema Stylist: @indianaromavoss Stylist assistant: @leawilbrand Special effects / prosthetics: @toki_made Make up: Kathinka Gernant Make up assistant: @romy_legger Hair: @sikovanberkel Hair assistant: @patrickburhenne Hair assistant: Isa Hinloopen Talents: Amber van Oirschot @ambervanoirschot Reilly Do Rosario @reillyfreemn Imani Selina @imaniselina Aucilia Do Rosario Ottawa @ottawakwami Le Chayno @lechayno Berber Bruessing Philip van den Bosch Earlier this year, Daily Paper’s Spring/Summer 2020 campaign imagined how a future society could build the foundations of a new world.

Alexander McQueen releases womenswear Pre Fall 2020

Fashion British art nouveau and arts and crafts, the restrained elegance of modernism: the sinuous iris, the proud thistle and The Glasgow Rose. The windswept earth and Northern landscapes laid bare. The core of the earth and the treasures hidden beneath its surface. Metal ores: rich seams of gold, silver and copper running throughout. Mineralogy: crystal, agate, flint, rock; opaque and sculptural on the outside, jewelled and reflective within. The juxtaposition between sobriety and seduction, the raw and the refined, the textured and the smooth, the light and the dark, all contrasts true to the handwriting of the house of Alexander McQueen.   British art nouveau and arts and crafts, the restrained elegance of modernism: the sinuous iris, the proud thistle and The Glasgow Rose.

FENDI's California Sky Collection featuring Joshua Vides' vibrant graphics

Fashion FENDI brings a touch of dynamic, free spirited Californian vibe to its Prefall 2020 Collection designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi, through an exclusive collaboration with Los Angeles-based visual artist Joshua Vides, following last July’s Harrods FENDI CAFFE and Peekaboo Bar pop-up.     For FENDI’s Prefall 2020, Joshua Vides, one of the most interesting figures on the contemporary art scene who is known worldwide for his unique black & white marker style, gives his dizzyingly cool, cartoon-like treatment to a range of Women’s, Men’s and Kid’s Ready-to-Wear and Accessories pieces.   In keeping with his signature style, Joshua Vides worked a black & white color palette including his trademark marker style, peppered by sky blue and wisteria violet touches, to create charming 3D, tromp-l’oeil effects by mapping the seams and edges of a range of urban and resort styles.  He also reinterpreted a vibrant, whimsical floral allover motif and reworked the FENDI Stamps and the iconic FF logo, splashed over a degrade background inspired by the shades of the Roman sky, with cartoonish, graphic exuberance.       The eye-catching decorative motifs conceived by Joshua Vides give an artsy, audacious attitude to the Women’s designs, which combine urban staples and resort styles. Mainly focused on lightweight fabrications, the Collection spans from street-savvy nylon windbreakers, embossed cycling shorts, compact knits and printed denim pants to luxurious featherweight fur coats and cardigans, reversible padded blousons, perforated leather jackets, as well as a selection of elegant evening styles crafted from a textured cloqué jacquard fabric. For beach escapes, kaftans and poplin shirtdresses are shown next to beachwear and activewear for an energetic, dynamic vibe.    Joshua Vides’ marker style also gives a distinctive attitude to FENDI’s iconic accessories, from the Peekaboo and Baguetteiconic bags, shown in a super soft padded leather, and the new FENDI Roma shopper, to the signature Colibrìsling-backs and FF Fluid sock sneakers crafted from polished leather.      The same graphic extravaganza defines the Men’s selection, where tromp l’oeil effects, shaded details, flowers and revisited FF logo patterns give a twist to cotton jackets, satin blousons, embossed leather outerwear, sweatshirts, T-shirts, denim pants, cotton trousers, Bermuda pants, as well as accessories, including the iconic Baguette, a small travel case, a backpack, a fanny pack, small leather goods, sneakers, sandals and slides.      The Kids Collection completes the family offer featuring the Joshua Vides’ graphics, the black and white marker style and the revisited FF logo, to add a fun touch to children’s windbreakers, cotton shirts, shorts, hyper feminine dresses and accessories, such as slip-on sneakers, sandals and backpacks.     The Collection includes a new interpretation of bestseller FendiramaWomen’s Sunglasses, featuring a silver metal frame and a graphic interpretation of the FENDI Stamps on the silver mirror lenses, as well as the new Men’s Botanical Fendi Sunglasses, an extra-light white shield with the iconic reinterpreted FF logo mirrored all over the grey lens.      Explore more on Fendi.com FENDI brings a touch of dynamic, free spirited Californian vibe to its Prefall 2020 Collection designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi, through an exclusive collaboration with Los Angeles-based visual artist Joshua Vides, following last July’s Harrods FENDI CAFFE and Peekaboo Bar pop-up.     For FENDI’s Prefall 2020, Joshua Vides, one of the most interesting figures on the contemporary art scene who is known worldwide for his unique black & white marker style, gives his dizzyingly cool, cartoon-like treatment to a range of Women’s, Men’s and Kid’s Ready-to-Wear and Accessories pieces.   In keeping with his signature style, Joshua Vides worked a black & white color palette including his trademark marker style, peppered by sky blue and wisteria violet touches, to create charming 3D, tromp-l’oeil effects by mapping the seams and edges of a range of urban and resort styles.  He also reinterpreted a vibrant, whimsical floral allover motif and reworked the FENDI Stamps and the iconic FF logo, splashed over a degrade background inspired by the shades of the Roman sky, with cartoonish, graphic exuberance.       The eye-catching decorative motifs conceived by Joshua Vides give an artsy, audacious attitude to the Women’s designs, which combine urban staples and resort styles.

Daily Paper releases the new Spring & summer Kids campaign

Fashion Daily Paper today launch their Spring Summer 2020 Kids campaign celebrating fatherhood through a series of portraits that offer a glimpse into the most intimate moments that fathers share with their children.   A Genuine Depiction of Fatherhood: Using our platform as a voice for positive black representation, the campaign highlights and honors the reality we see in our society - the overwhelming majority of husbands, brothers, sons & boyfriends who are balancing successful careers as artists and creatives whilst being exceptional fathers too. The editorial features a few of the London-based creatives who make up our extended tribe including Kida Kudz, Mark Maciver aka SliderCuts and Grooveguruu. To us, these men are not only our friends and family but are emblematic of what fatherhood should be.     A visual interpretation of the poem ‘Oh Child’ (referenced below) written by the multidisciplinary creative Florian Joahn, the series of photographs and accompanying film explores a central theme intrinsic to the father-child relationship – as their innocent yet naive child navigates their way through harsh realities of the modern world for the first time, a father has to make a choice between being their protector or granting them freedom. While being overprotective can rob a child of the freedom to grow and carve their own path through life, too much independence can leave a child vulnerable to a world that feels geared against them – this is the internal struggle faced by every father across the globe.     The Daily Paper’s SS20 Kids campaign visualizes a genuine depiction of fatherhood through the sincere and sober portrayal of the father-child relationship inside the home.    A Diverse Collection Designed for Babies and Children: The real stars of the editorial –  the adorable Enoch, Samuel, Makelo, and Aroko – are styled in selected pieces from the Daily Paper SS20 Kids collection. The unisex line of clothing is designed for all ages, from newborn to child, and consists of a range of rompers alongside comfy sport and swimwear focused silhouettes. Highlights include mini-me versions of iconic pieces like our ‘Tape Logo’ track pants alongside our ‘Alias’ tees to make for some seriously cute co-ordinated parent-child combinations.    Meanwhile, our swimwear offerings include a bucket hat with chin strap for all-day sun protection at the beach or poolside alongside matching swim shorts or swimsuits. For more formal occasions, we introduce vividly striped long-sleeve polos which were tailormade for matching daddy-daughter or son combos.      The forthcoming Daily Paper SS20 Kids line releases on June 19th, 12:00 PM CET at Daily Paper storefronts, select retailer The Bijenkorf in Amsterdam, and online at www.dailypaperclothing.com.

GUCCI launches Off The Grid

GUCCI launches Off The Grid

Fashion Gucci announces the launch of Gucci Off The Grid, the first collection from Gucci Circular Lines, designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, an initiative created to support the House’s vision for circular production.    Designed for those mindful of their environmental impact, Gucci Off The Grid uses recycled, organic, bio-based and sustainably sourced materials, including ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon made from nylon offcuts and pre- and post-consumer waste.   Human beings crave a connection with the outside world and are rightly fascinated by the power and majesty of nature, and highly value the joy there is in being able to live in a natural environment. The desire to explore this way of life, and the natural world in general, is something we can consider an instinctive human desire; and journeys are valuable in being able to fulfil this need. A journey is a way of engaging and nourishing the imagination, and it is for this reason that Gucci embraces the idea of the journey as a means of self-discovery and self-expression.     Along with the launch of the collection, which comprises genderless luggage, accessories, footwear and ready-to-wear, Gucci is releasing a global campaign conceived by Alessandro Michele and shot by photographer and director Harmony Korine. Featuring a cast of city dwellers who have taken up residence in a rustic treehouse, constructed in the heart of a towering concrete and glass modern metropolis. The striking contrast between the small-scale, crudely assembled wooden structure, with its greenery and unfinished planks, and the slick, soaring skyscrapers that dwarf it, makes for whimsical images where our metropolitan explorers look like they are making a modest stand for the future of humankind. Of course, the treehouse and the simple way of life it represents becomes a powerful metaphor for the desire to escape conventional life and enjoy the experience of living more Off The Grid.     Alessandro Michele says: “The collection is the result of teamwork; everybody brought something to it. And in the campaign, too, there is this idea of dialogue among people building something new. I imagined that we could build a treehouse in a city centre, all together, like kids playing in the park. Because all of us need to build this house or to find out that our planet exists, even where it seems it’s not there, or it’s far away.”     The eclectic group of treehouse people starring in the campaign, which was shot in Los Angeles prior to recent events, includes: Jane Fonda, Academy Award-winning actress, producer, author and activist; guitarist, singer-songwriter, record producer and actor Miyavi; David de Rothschild, environmentalist and explorer; GRAMMY Award-winning rapper, singer and songwriter Lil Nas X; and King Princess, singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and music producer.     The campaign will break on the Gucci ArtWalls worldwide from June 15th in the following locations: Milan’s Largo la Foppa, in the district of Corso Garibaldi; just off East London’s famous Brick Lane; Shanghai’s Fengsheng Li, Jingan district; and Lafayette Street, in Manhattan’s SoHo neighbourhood; Hong Kong’s D’Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong; and Yongkang Street, Da’an District, Taipei.     A special section on the Gucci App will allow users to challenge themselves to a themed quiz, responding to questions about the collection and its circular production process. Taking inspiration from the campaign’s concept, players can build their own city tree house virtually by correctly answering questions, and eventually unlock dedicated wallpaper to share on social media.     Sustainability – at all levels – involves fostering respect: respect for the people we share our planet with as well as for the environment. If we lighten our environmental footprint we can explore the world with greater freedom – the freedom to follow our dreams, with curiosity, openness and joy.   #GucciOffTheGrid     The collection’s main material is 100% regenerated nylon created from recycled ECONYL® yarn. This yarn comes from nylon from pre- and post-consumer waste, including abandoned fishing nets and carpets — transforming plastics that harm marine life and old materials that will likely end up in landfills into a new high-quality thread. Gucci was the first luxury brand to use ECONYL® regenerated nylon thread for its products, beginning in 2016. Other components of Gucci Off The Grid are made from recycled materials and more sustainable alternatives such as metal-free tanned leather, recycled polyester thread and linings, recycled brass, recycled gold and palladium hardware coating, and solvent-free adhesives. To support a continued cycle, the ECONYL® offcuts are recovered from Gucci Off the Grid’s manufacturing and then recycled to create new ECONYL® materials as part of the “GUCCI-ECONYL® PRE CONSUMER FABRIC TAKE BACK PROGRAM”. Leather scraps from the collection are also recovered and upcycled as part of the Gucci-Up programme.   Regarding greenhouse gas emissions, Gucci’s core approach to sustainability here is first to avoid and reduce the impacts in its own operations and across the entire supply chain, and then, as a last measure, to protect and conserve nature though offsetting. To this end, the House has incorporated more sustainable alternatives related to the sourcing of raw materials, the manufacturing and production processes, and distribution and sales, in order to lower greenhouse gas emissions, and has offset the remaining emissions through Gucci’s annual carbon neutral commitment, which supports REDD+ projects that protect forests and biodiversity in vital places around the world to help the conservation of our planet.   The Gucci Off The Grid collection comes with dedicated FSC-certified packaging, which includes a card displaying a Gucci logo that features information about the products and the story behind the Gucci Off The Grid sustainability project.     Creative Director: Alessandro Michele Art Director: Christopher Simmonds Photographer/Director: Harmony Korine Talents: Jane Fonda, Lil Nas X, King Princess, Miyavi, David de Rothschild  Make Up: Thomas de Kluyver Hair Stylist: Alex Brownsell Gucci announces the launch of Gucci Off The Grid, the first collection from Gucci Circular Lines, designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, an initiative created to support the House’s vision for circular production.    Designed for those mindful of their environmental impact, Gucci Off The Grid uses recycled, organic, bio-based and sustainably sourced materials, including ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon made from nylon offcuts and pre- and post-consumer waste.   Human beings crave a connection with the outside world and are rightly fascinated by the power and majesty of nature, and highly value the joy there is in being able to live in a natural environment.
