Oliver Peoples opens in Amsterdam

Accessories Oliver Peoples, the luxury eyewear brand headquartered in Los Angeles, is proud to announce the opening of their Amsterdam boutique located on the historic shopping street, PC Hooftstraat on January 31st. The 100 square meter boutique is a marriage between the brand’s typical Mid-Century Modern boutique aesthetic and Dutch minimalism. The result is a timeless and serene space for clients to shop the brand's vintage-inspired eyewear.   Oliver Peoples strives to be the most culturally distinctive eyewear brand in the world. Handcrafted from the finest quality materials and known for a deliberate lack of a visible logo. Oliver Peoples remains a revered brand and continues to entice eyewear enthusiasts, creating new designs that stand the test of time. Giampiero Tagliaferri, Creative Director of Oliver Peoples: “I’ve always been fascinated by the Dutch design approach to design: clean lines, soft colors, and natural textures that translate in warm and inviting spaces despite the absence of elaborate decor. For the new boutique, I wanted to follow this approach by working with volumes, materials, and coloring that reminded me of beautiful Amsterdam interiors. The focus of the boutique is the stairs. The boutique has two floors that were originally connected by very steep hidden stairs. By opening the central area, I gave room to the new stairs to become an integral part of the display area with the steps blending into shelves and platforms to display glasses, books, and a turntable to play old vinyl records. While the ground floor houses the whole collection, the first floor serves as a more intimate fitting room mostly dedicated to optical styles and special releases. Making use of the high ceilings, the center of the boutique features a wood swing, a reminder that being playful feels good at every age.”The Amsterdam boutique will carry a wide array of optical and sunglasses for men and women with the Spring 2020 collection proudly on display. The collection exemplifies the brand’s philosophy of timeless designs fit for every look of today, with inspiration taken from the icons of Hollywood and 1970’s style. The collection features Coleridge as its centerpiece. Since its original introduction in the early ’90s, this design has been one of the brand's best-selling optical styles.  To celebrate the Amsterdam opening, Oliver Peoples is releasing ten custom pieces of the Coleridge Sun. The Coleridge Sun is an understated design with clean lines for a classic, vintage-inspired look. The sunglass is reinterpreted for the Amsterdam boutique in an exclusive colorway, Silver and Shale Gradient lenses. These new tones complement the boutique's unique design concept. For added exclusivity, each style is stamped “Exclusive at Amsterdam” to highlight the bespoke offering. Rocco Basilico, CEO of Oliver Peoples: “We are very excited to be close to our Amsterdam clients with Oliver Peoples’ first boutique in the Netherlands. The brand’s focus on craftsmanship and attention to detail perfectly aligns with the history of this city – classic beauty with timeless charm built off a base of innovation and design. Our brand is rich with California culture mixed with European influences, capable of meeting the needs of our clientele all over the world. Our latest opening continues to evolve our retail growth strategy worldwide.” Oliver Peoples, the luxury eyewear brand headquartered in Los Angeles, is proud to announce the opening of their Amsterdam boutique located on the historic shopping street, PC Hooftstraat on January 31st.

A.P.C. & Persol announce collaboration

Accessories For their first collaboration in half a century, Persol worked with A.P.C. on three color variants for their iconic 649 model. It was originally designed in 1957 for tram-drivers in Torino, Italy, but became legendary when Marcello Mastroianni wore them in the movie Divorce, Italian Style in 1961. With A.P.C., Persol worked on three new acetate colors: transparent green with gradient brown lens, transparent brown with gradient green lens and matte white with grey gradient lens. The sunglasses come in canvas and brown leather cases. A special campaign was shot by Sam Rock at the A.P.C. headquarters with A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou, Metronomy singer Joseph Mount and Sky Ferreira. The campaign is also accompanied by a set of four videos. “I really enjoy wearing sunglasses when it is sunny outside. These ones can be used to simply bare with every day light, just like Kurt Cobain had to. He has become the inspiration for those white frames the venerable Maison Persol agreed to do with us.” — Jean Touitou, A.P.C. “Both the story and philosophy of A.P.C. have much in common with those of Persol. We are two brands granting as much importance to beauty and craft as to simple functionality.” – Niels van Geet, Persol.   In stores from February 7th.

"It's what you do. Or don't."

Fashion With the streetwear campaign “It’s what you do. Or Don’t”, online fashion destination Zalando shows what it really means to express yourself through fashion. In a series of stylish urban films and ads, photographer Vitali Gelwich, director Daniel Wårdh, and stylist Corey Stokes, tell the story of a group of charismatic streetwear personalities in unexpected situations, mixing and matching Zalando streetwear and showing what liberation through fashion really means. In the campaign, we meet a motley crew of expressive streetwear in influencers: Parisian Jean-Jacques N’djoli with his irreplaceable Instagram profile and an impeccable sense of style, Berlin street fashionista and sneaker collector Dilan Kolkilic, the Swedish model Linnea Öhlund with a knack for the street savy model off duty look, and the master of over the top mixing and matching Joël Kurasinski from Valencia. They’re all curating their own eclectic mix of outfits from Zalando, as the campaign inspires people to discover and develop their own streetwear style. On the theme “It’s what you do. Or don’t”, the campaign shows our in influencers in outfits and situations that first look a certain way – but soon turn out to be something completely different. Playing with contrasts, juxtapositions and shifting perspectives. Showing how streetwear is all in the eye of the beholder, all up to you what you want to express, or not. In “Climb mountains. Or don’t”, Jean-Jacques in ski goggles is moving upwards against a blue sky giving the impression that he is hiking, only to reveal he’s actually walking up a set of outdoor stairs in an urban setting. In “Join the running team. Or don’t”, we see Dilan and Linnea tying their sneakers as a bunch of sporty joggers run by – zoom out and it’s clear that running is the last thing they’ll do, the sneakers are just a part of their ever so urban park outfit. “Be a benchwarmer. Or don’t” shows the gang dribbling a basketball on the sidelines of a court. Zoom out, and we see they’re all wearing VR goggles – fully engaged in their own world and definitely not on any bench. And on it goes in“Be fancy. Or don’t”,“Keep it minimal. Or don’t”and so on. With humor and style, the films show that streetwear has no rules, it’s not a set style or specia brands. It’s all about personal choices and maximum individual expression. This is Gen Z fashion for people who go their own way: eclectic, postmodern samplers and collaborators who get their inspiration from everywhere and everyone – and make it their own. Strong characters who mix and match their own unique way, high and low, old and new, niche and mainstream. Always de ning and re-defining themselves, always evolving, always making a statement. Or not. Produced by ACNE, the creative team has been handpicked for their unique mix of strong vision, fashion  and understanding of street culture. Photographer Vitali Gelwich is a Berlin based artist and fashion photographer, known for his raw documentary style and organic mix of high fashion and street culture. Stockholm based director Daniel Wårdh is a Vans sponsored skateboarder who combines the attitude and tempo of street culture with his passion for music and fashion. Stylist Corey Stokes is a super in influencer and art director, stylist and fashion editor at Highsnobiety. Re-imagining fashion for the good of all, the new Zalando campaign “It’s what you do. Or don’t.” is a loud, fun, and highly personal celebration of our differences – the pursuit of individual expression, to the rhythm of the street. Mixing and matching your own way, creating your own unique combinations like no one else. A unique fashion statement that’s individual, liberating and democratic. By highlighting the endless combinations and interpretations curated by the in influencers, the “It’s what you do. Or don’t.” campaign highlights how Zalando’s wide range of streetwear inspires and enables people to express their personality through fashion, combining and creating unique outfits in personal ways. Streetwear is rooted in being effortless cool and not looking like you’re trying too hard. It’s a mish-mash of everything and anything. It’s nostalgia and contemporary. New and thrifted. Mixing luxury with everyday casual. Completely bold or utterly au natural. One part super thoughtout, another part super random. And it might seem like there’s no thought at all behind it. But that’s the thing. There is. Streetwear is about being unique and real, expressing yourself, whatever it takes. It’s about finding inspiration where no one else is looking. Or where everyone’s looking. It’s about combos that makes sense just because they don’t. Or out ts that don’t make sense just because they do. It’s about constantly refreshing – or not refreshing at all. About having one look today and then never again. Or the same look every day. That’s the beautiful contradiction of the streetwear attitude. Be ugly, be bold, be weird. Or don’t. Be cute, be pretty, be completely undetermined. Or don’t. Go full denim. Or don’t. Be expressive. Or don’t. It’s what you do. Or don’t.   With the streetwear campaign “It’s what you do.

At Givenchy, stars align for their new campaign

Fashion For its Spring-Summer 2020 advertising campaign, the House of Givenchy revisits its signature “couple” theme with an iconoclastic new pairing. In a glamorous, fresh dichotomy, the House reveals two icons — Charlotte Rampling and Marc Jacobs — in a campaign lensed by the photographer Craig McDean, with guidance from Givenchy Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller. Together and individually, the Paris-based actress and the New York-based designer appear in portraits that boldly celebrate individualistic beauty and the liberated, self-assured attitude so emblematic of Givenchy. The series honors the “Givenchy sitting” style of portraiture, a celebration of strength, wit and innate elegance. It follows the campaign starring Ariana Grande, for the Fall-Winter 2019 season. Wearing directional looks and key accessories from the Spring-Summer 2020 collection, each icon appears in his or her signature style, Rampling in masculine tailoring and Jacobs in more feminine pieces. Both radiate strength of character, their natural grandeur further underscored by a neutral setting. Dual perspectives feature close-ups and three-quarter length images in color and black and white. In single portraits, they offer a personal take on Bond accessories. Dressed in graphic black and white, Rampling folds the Bond shopper under her arm while Jacobs, dressed in a shiny black overcoat, carries a men’s Bond duffle that’s filled to capacity. In a naturalistic three-quarter portrait, Rampling gazes at the viewer with her signature mysterious half-smile, the season’s star handbag, the ID93 in buttery yellow suede, slung casually over her shoulder. In another image, she appears dressed in a trench and smoky aviators with the Mystic bag in cognac leather. A dual portrait shows the stars radiating grace and confidence. Posing back-to-back, they embody a complementary take on the season’s sophisticated red floral motifs. In the campaign’s companion video, Rampling and Jacobs stars appear “as they are”. Rampling - dressed in her signature masculine/feminine style – offers Jacobs a master class in the dramatic arts. With timeless chic and natural grace, the English icon coolly plays foil to the New York-based designer’s extravagant, tongue-in-cheek take on femininity. Surreal and absurd elements show the season’s footwear playing telephone, for example. The Givenchy Spring-Summer 2020 advertising campaign will be released online today and break in the March issue of selected magazines worldwide.

Accessories The iconic, original Dr. Martens boot 1460 will turn 60 this year, and that may be celebrated. Starting this month, a series of collaborations with 12 world-famous brands follows. Each of these brands has made its own design for the 1460 boot. The first partner in this series is the Japanese streetwear brand 'A Bathing Ape'.  Six decades of self-expression. Six eras in which Dr. Martens has grown with the subcultures that embraced them. Sixty years in which they made their carriers stronger. Dr.Martens has seen the world change drastically. But one thing has remained the same all the time: the 1460 boot. Over the past 60 years, the distinctive silhouette has been shaped and toppled by countless subcultures and freethinkers. The boots mean something else to everyone who tightens their laces. So Dr. Martens transferred the 1460 boat (not only in honor of their anniversary, but also because of the start of a new decade) to 12 innovative and world-famous brands, labels and designers. Together with them Dr. Martens their iconic silhouette in a new jacket. In 2020 a brand new boat will be released once a month. The legendary streetwear brand 'A Bathing Ape' is the first to take a turn. Dr. Martens has revived this creative relationship and is now working with them for the fourth time. BAPE (A Bathing Ape) was founded in 1993 in Tokyo, Japan. The origin of BAPE lies in the Harajuku culture of the early 90s. Their most distinctive design, the 'BAPE 1st Camo', became a legendary status symbol.  BAPE has often used British culture as a source of inspiration. For the 1460 REMASTERED collaboration series, they have made the perfect mix of their own legendary camouflage print and dr. Martens' classical DNA. With this they bring an ode to the history of both brands.  This special edition has eight lace eyes and a black nose of soft leather that is flanked by a green BAPE first camo print. The boot symbolizes the best of both brands. The famous BAPE STA  logo runs across the center of the boot. The yellow BAPE logo on the hi-loop completes the picture.  We are excited to share with you the coming collaboration later this year on @numero_netherlands. The boot is available from 25 January 2020 - in very limited numbers - in selected stores and online via drmartens.com.  The iconic, original Dr. Martens boot 1460 will turn 60 this year, and that may be celebrated. Starting this month, a series of collaborations with 12 world-famous brands follows. Each of these brands has made its own design for the 1460 boot. The first partner in this series is the Japanese streetwear brand 'A Bathing Ape'.  Six decades of self-expression. Six eras in which Dr. Martens has grown with the subcultures that embraced them. Sixty years in which they made their carriers stronger. Dr.Martens has seen the world change drastically. But one thing has remained the same all the time: the 1460 boot. Over the past 60 years, the distinctive silhouette has been shaped and toppled by countless subcultures and freethinkers. The boots mean something else to everyone who tightens their laces. So Dr. Martens transferred the 1460 boat (not only in honor of their anniversary, but also because of the start of a new decade) to 12 innovative and world-famous brands, labels and designers. Together with them Dr. Martens their iconic silhouette in a new jacket. In 2020 a brand new boat will be released once a month.

Bottega Veneta's Spring campaign is a vision of hedonistic aspiration

Fashion Anchored in sensuality and pure luxury, Bottega Veneta’s Spring 2020 campaign is a vision of hedonistic aspiration. Creative Director Daniel Lee, together with photographer Tyrone Lebon, continue their view of an endless summer. The eternal signifier of elevation and luxury. Idly floating through time. Sun. Sea. Pleasure. The faint ‘click’ of a lens shutter in the distance. Paparazzi poised for a glimpse. Top deck. Carefree sensuality unfolds. Calm. Casual. Confident. Featuring models Mica Argañarazand and Edoardo Sebastianelli. Cold chains warm against sun kissed skin. Weightless leather staples bend and slouch. Earthy tones and bold pops of colour. Endless blue sky bleeds to coral and violet. Opulent jewels and sequins glitter under evening fireworks. A day of indulgence draws to an end, only to be relived the next.

Louis Vuitton presents Pre-Fall 2020

Fashion Fashion is a novel. And the Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2020 collection embarks on a narrative journey where the garments tell their own tales. These characters from their wardrobe set the scene for our days, our moods, our lives. Thismeeting of periods, stylistic movements and anachronistic combinations brings to life a rich cast of costumes. In such a ‘wearable library’, each outwrites its own chapter made up of romantic monologues. Peculiar dialogues between stylistic rebellion and ne crafts-manship. An account of sportswear’s encounter withtailoring. Taking the cultural references even further, Louis Vuitton has adorned one of the collection’s t-shirts with the original cover from William Peter Blatty’s 1971 cult science-fiction novel The Exorcist. To illustrate this collection – a term that works just as well with fashion as it does with literature or on the big screen – the House’s muses proudly take to book covers or posters as protagonists, fitting perfectly into Louis Vuitton’s history and brilliantly embracing therole of adventurer. for more go on louisvuitton.com Photographer Collier Schorr   Fashion is a novel. And the Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2020 collection embarks on a narrative journey where the garments tell their own tales.
