Vault by Vans x Fergus Purcell: A Convergence of Street Culture and High Fashion

Accessories Vans always strives to collaborate with creative expressors that embody skate culture and few others have touched the contemporary scene quite like British illustrator Fergus “Fergadelic” Purcell. He is respected and well-known for blending street-level aesthetics with high fashion for some of the biggest brands out there. Adorned with hundreds of homemade stick and poke tattoos, Fergus Purcell represents the convergence of street culture and high fashion, with a shared design sensibility with Vans.    This spring, Vans introduces the Vault by Vans x Fergus Purcell collaboration, featuring unique prints on four iconic Vans silhouettes. Each style is based on the absolute OG original style, including hand-wrapped high foxing tape, original panels, original label artwork and premium materials.    Inspired by corner stores around the world, styles include a custom OG Authentic LX and OG Chukka LX, featuring a distinct print of Fergadelic artwork. “I love the contrast between the mundane ubiquity of the corner shop and the bewildering variety of the products inside,” Fergus describes. “It’s such an overload on the eye. Psychedelic. It’s these feelings that I’m channeling in this artwork.”    The second set of classic Vans styles to get the Fergadelic overhaul include an OG Authentic and OG Chukka, each in a retro, acid wash colorway. “The acid wash design is based on a memory from my youth, of coveting a pair of acid wash Vans when they came out around the late ‘80s,” Fergus said. “I’ve collided this memory with— for no reason at all, let’s call it surreal—contemporary scratch card imagery, perhaps creating shoes that are lucky and will bring a big win.”     To round out the collection, Vault by Vans x Fergus Purcell also introduce a unique 10-piece apparel and accessories offering, to tell a full head-to-toe story. Each style incorporates the corner shop inspiration for a quirky iteration of Vans classic apparel and accessory silhouettes.   The Vault by Vans x Fergus Purcell collection is available in two drops – the corner store collection on April 18, 2020, and the acid wash collection on May 23, 2020.

In conversation with Denitza Margova & Franziska Nellessen

Fashion Get ready for summer! Whether we can only long for remote holiday destinations for the time being or whether we can actually pack our bags again soon: The new jewellery collection from Margova for EDITED invites you to dream!    Whitewashed houses, golden rays of sunlight, blue skies and the lush, shimmering sea: „The inspiration for the collection has its origins in summer and is influenced by the Bohemian- Mediterranean way of life in Greece and the colour blue, which is an integral part of the scenery there“, explains designer Denitza Margova. Blue is known as the colour of air and water, of longing and vastness. By using rich tones, delicate pearls and light materials, the designer references her Greek roots and reinterprets them. The result is a beautiful jewelry collection that is cool yet elegant at the same time – the typical Margova mix.   All materials are sourced in Germany and manufactured with the finest craftsmanship, mainly in Germany.     What is the inspiration behind the collection and what is it influenced by?   Denitza Margova: The collection started with the idea of summer and where I love to spend it the most. I dove into the world of my great grandparents, who come from a small village near the Greek coast. The collection is inspired by the bohemian Mediterranean way of life and the color blue.   Why are EDITED and MARGOVA the perfect match for this collaboration?   Franziska Nellessen: We love to team up with strong and unique local brands, whose aesthetics and values match our brand. I am an admirer of the jewellery collections of MARGOVA since years and therefore super happy we have created this collection together.   How did you incorporate your roots into the new collection?   DM: With this collection I am embracing my roots in a modern way with rich colours, delicate pearls and light materials. Characteristics of the aesthetic include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity and an appreciation of the integrity of natural materials. This results in beautiful and unusual combinations.      What is your favourite summer memory?   DM: I have a couple. But most of them include sitting outside with my loved ones and enjoy great food and drinks, have a laugh and end up dancing J   FN: I always loved watching sunsets and sunrises. The sky awaking and transforming into different shades of pink and purple are my favourite moments of the day.     Which scent reminds you of summer?   DM: Fig trees and that specific smell of a mild summer night.    FN: Olive trees and sun protection lotion.     Which feeling do you want people to get from this capsule collection?   DM: I want people to feel light and happy while wearing it.   FN: Jewellery is the icing on the cake – the final touch to every outfit. These pieces should freshen up your everyday looks.    What is your favourite item from the collection?   DM: It’s definitely the RAW necklace, because every single necklace is unique. I just love the uneven raw texture of that recycled silk yarn I used for it.    FN: I have to endorse D`s opinion. It is something you have not seen much before. But I am also quite fond of the ring and always love a good anklet.     What is your favourite artwork and has it inspired you for any of your work?   DM: I love the work from Willem de Kooning and I can definitely see myself doing a de Kooning inspired collection one day.     How do you stay positive and creative during these difficult times?   DM: Not sure what it is, but I have the feeling that people became more patient. Everything takes a bit longer and this also gives me the chance to create new designs. Usually my days are full with everyday office work and I get everything done right away. After a busy day I am mostly too exhausted to do new designs, but I’m just taking everything a bit slower now and it works for me.    FN: I have an eleven months old daughter at home, who sparks a lot of joy. I enjoy going on walks with her no matter what weather and my highlight each day is cake and coffee in the afternoon.     What are your quarantine essentials?   DM: A facemask every other day and long walks with my dog.   FN: 30 minute barre workouts every other day, coffee and cuddle time.     When and where will the collection be available?   FN: The collection will launch on the 19thof May on the EDITED (https://www.edited.nl/)and Margova (https://margova.com/) websites and in our EDITED stores in Germany and Austria.     Get ready for summer!

Bang & Olufsen introduces the new Beosound A1

Design Bang & Olufsen today released the second-generation Beosound A1, the Danish luxury audio brand’s award- winning portable Bluetooth speaker, which has been redesigned to include a whole raft of performance and design improvements. Beosound A1 2nd Gen comes with a refined, slimmer design that is fully dust and waterproof, has a significantly improved battery life with up to 18 hours of play time at typical volume, an overhauled user interface and - a first for a Bluetooth only speaker - a built-in Alexa voice assistant. More powerful and easier to use - the best just got better.   “Our first A1 speaker was loved by customers for its combination of minimalist design, portability, powerful sound and the built-in speakerphone that made it easy and fun to speak with friends and family. The new Beosound A1 builds on these characteristics and improves them in every way that matters”, says Christoffer Østergaard Poulsen, Bang & Olufsen VP of Product Management.   Beosound A1 retains its elegant shape and unique contours, brought to life in collaboration with renowned Danish industrial designer. The second-generation is 7 percent lighter than the original and has a fresh take on the hole pattern, with a slightly lighter casing and a tapered base giving the speaker a more weightless floating impression even though only 0,85mm lower. The leather strap – a stylish key feature that adds to its easy portability – now has a new tag to ensure that Beosound A1 remains one of the most versatile products for hanging options. Buttons have been redesigned and repositioned to improve overall user interaction. Now placed nearer to the strap for easier location, the buttons also have bigger and clearer symbols and at the same time, the LED indicator has also been moved to the top of the speaker making a significant improvement on its visibility from all angles. Inside Beosound A1 you will find two re-designed drivers for an even clearer 360-degree sound: a 3.5-inch aluminum cone mid woofer using a powerful neodymium magnetic system, a silk dome 3/4 inch dome tweeter and advanced DSP filtering powered by a pair of 30-watt class D amplifiers. The speaker now comes with aptX adaptive codec for an even better wireless listening experience.   Beosound A1 (RRP 250 EUR, 200 GBP, 350 CHF, 2000 DKK) launches in Black Anthracite and Grey Mist and is available online, in select retailers and in Bang & Olufsen stores from May 14, 2020.

FENTY launches new styles of sunglasses

Accessories FENTY launches three new styles of sunglasses to suit every high, low and incognito mood of summer.   An immediate expression of style confidence, eyewear is one of our CEO and Artistic Director’s favorite categories. Since our launch in May 2019, FENTY has pushed the boundaries on every aspect, creating new techno shapes, rainbow lenses and fusion jewelry-eyewear with crystal ear cuffs. Whether classic, retro or futuristic, each design plays with signature detailing and has a distinct FENTY attitude.   ‘Coded’, the first design in the summer release, is a modern take on a vintage shape with rectangular frames and super subtle cat-eye lenses, cut out at the edge in true FENTY style. Available in Jet Black or Milky Way with matching colored lenses, this style features gold detailing and FENTY monogrammed tips. Rihanna debuted both colorways at the inaugural Fenty Social Club.   The second style, ‘Off Record Sunglasses’ is our most vibrant design yet, delivering ultimate summer vibes. The cat-eye shape of the lens is accentuated, set in Candy Pink, Acid Green, Cosmic Blue and Black acetate frames. Clashing animal print temples add an 80s flair to the uptempo design, perfect for a summer of camera-ready digital fun.   The final style, the ‘Classified’, will be released on May 27th. The design follows the shape and cut-out lenses of the first two, with additional features of metal clasps on the cut-outs and metal plates on the temples – another signature detail evolved from the Blockt and Antisocial frames. Cutting an overall more dramatic silhouette in high impact Black Gold and a softer Rose Havana, the soon to be released design has an air of old school glamour and mid-summer romance.   The Coded and Off Record Sunglasses styles are available now at Fenty.com FENTY launches three new styles of sunglasses to suit every high, low and incognito mood of summer.   An immediate expression of style confidence, eyewear is one of our CEO and Artistic Director’s favorite categories.

HUGO x Liam Payne release the second collection

HUGO x Liam Payne release the second collection

Fashion   After the success of their first capsule, HUGO and Liam Payne go back to their roots this season.      HUGO and Liam Payne unveil their second collaborative effort, a capsule of menswear pieces in a signature palette of black, white, navy, and red. This season celebrates the HUGO ambassador’s fast-track journey from teen pop sensation to established solo artist. Comprised of apparel, accessories, and an exclusive new sneaker style, each piece features a “go fast” chevron motif inspired by a tattoo on the global brand ambassador’s right arm.    The new collection brings together the brand’s unconventional style and Liam’s sporty aesthetic, as HUGO’s signature slim-fit jeans blend with athleisure-inspired sweaters and track pants. Nodding to the origins of HUGO and the year in which Liam was born, the brand’s logo is reinvented as ‘HUGO93.LP’ boldly printed or embroidered across all 14 pieces.   “I’ve learned so much about my own style over the past two years and I’m so grateful to continue to design clothes that I love to wear,” Liam says. “This season is very me. It’s all about easy styles that are perfect for the weekend.”   Shot by British photographer Tom Craig, the campaign features Liam in edgy, head-to-toe looks from the capsule. The setting for the shoot, an abandoned rooftop in the heart of London, makes for a stark contrast against the iconic red, white, and blue colors of the pieces.   The new collection will be available to shop online and in the HUGO store in Amsterdam from 13 May onwards.   After the success of their first capsule, HUGO and Liam Payne go back to their roots this season.      HUGO and Liam Payne unveil their second collaborative effort, a capsule of menswear pieces in a signature palette of black, white, navy, and red.

LV² BY NIGO

Fashion Squaring: the multiplication of a number by itself. The acknowledgment that one idea can co-exist with another.   For the Pre-Fall 2020 season, Louis Vuitton launches LV2 – ‘Louis Vuitton squared’ – a standalone collaboration between men’s artistic director Virgil Abloh and Nigo. The capsule collection encompasses ready-to-wear, leather goods, shoes and accessories and features dedicated graphics and interpretations of the Louis Vuitton signatures. Borne out of a longstanding camaraderie, Virgil Abloh invited the Japanese designer and founder of Human Made to partner on a one-off line fusing their individual approaches under the guise of Louis Vuitton.   Celebrating the travel-centric core of the house, LV2 observes the London Mod-era dandy through a Tokyo lens. The cross-pollination sets the tone for a tailoring-focused collection, evoking chapters in the formative years of Nigo – who found much of his early inspiration in the subcultural history of London – while honing the traditional sartorial values proposed in the men’s Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2020 collection by Virgil Abloh. A nod to Human Made, the Japanese brand founded by Nigo, a flight jacket features the graphics ‘LV Made’ alongside a Mount Fuji graphic.   A cropped Mod suit adapts and magnifies the Louis Vuitton Damier check. The motif is echoed in a double-faced duffle coat with micro-check lining, while a black fishtail parka morphs values from the dandy and sports wardrobes. Patchworking appears throughout in a meeting between the Louis Vuitton Monogram and the Damier check rendered in denim.   The LV2 patchwork is repeated in bags based on classic Louis Vuitton shapes: the tote, the keepall, and the money bag, adorned with animal charms familiar to the world of Nigo. A formal steel toe-cap derby cements the Mod spirit alongside a tasselled loafer in Monogram. The Damier check is interpreted in an ankle boot in suede Damier, a hiking boot in sporty Damier leather, a shearling boot in blown-up Damier or in denim, and a mule in the same motifs. Rectangular sunglasses feature trunk clip detailing while jewellery carries the LV2 logo.   Nigo is the founder of the brand Human Made. He formerly founded the brand BAPE, and co-founded the brand Billionaire Boys Club. Squaring: the multiplication of a number by itself.
