Lois Jeans opens a new store Galería Dos in Milan

Fashion This summer, Lois Jeans is once again pushing its boundaries and opening its second home in Milan; Galeria Dos. The picturesque Italian property has been transformed into a unique 'Casa Lois'; the store concept where the modern Mediterranean aesthetic can be felt in all expressions. At the end of June, just after the official opening, the new collection No.13 will also be available there. A Spanish 'finca' in the Milanese district of Brera Nestled among the antique shops and boutiques in the narrow streets of Milan's Brera district, lies Galería Dos. An idyllic escape from home, inspired by Spanish roots and intertwined with the Italian character hidden among the stones. Galería Dos is the realization of a dream, where Lois' deep-seated soul is tangible in every corner and in every detail. A contemporary atmosphere, yet full of rich history. By settling down in the Brera district, the brand gets where it belongs; a much-loved part of the city previously inhabited by artists and bohemians. “Home is not a place, it's a feeling” The classic white arches, high ceilings and idyllic stone pillars; 'Galeria Dos' is a true escape from the everyday. In the serene space, surrounded by the organic stones, authentic details form and you experience a sense of true tranquility while shopping. A harmonious place where time seems to stand still for a moment. The love for the country and the city is reflected in the natural materials and pays tribute to the Italian heritage. Stones from old Italian villas have been reused and given a new lease of life in the in-house designed interior. Besides the Italian influences and curated objects, Lois introduces her own designed piece of furniture; an organically shaped sofa, inspired by the natural contours of the Spanish country and specially made for this gallery. In combination with the warm thatched ceiling and light stucco, the store feels like a Spanish country house where you are not a customer but a guest.

HERON PRESTON x GENTLE MONSTER

Accessories Gentle Monster and Heron Preston are thrilled to announce the launch of their first collaboration.     The new collection, inspired by the bold workwear design at the core of Preston’s vision, incorporates the brand’s signature 'spirit level' element into eyewear.     Heron Preston, founder and creative director of his namesake brand, was first drawn to this partnership thanks to Gentle Monster’s deep understanding of how to connect and juxtapose culture and art in authentic yet relatable ways.     This collection features three sunglasses in different color variations and a limited edition, custom designed case. The collaboration eyewear will be released on July 29th worldwide and available at Gentle Monster and Heron Preston's on and offline stores and global select shops.     Additionally, a special offline event will launch in late July to celebrate this joint effort. Tune in to further details on Gentle Monster and Heron Preston's social media channels.     "The level was first introduced in the collections as a heel on our women's boot. Given the success and excitement around that idea we challenged ourselves to think of other ways the level could be applied across different product categories. The shape and construction of sunglasses is the perfect platform for this idea. The horizontal line that creates the temple on the side of the glasses directly relates to the line of a level. It was the perfect fit. I decided to collaborate with GM because they always have supported big ideas and ambitious thinking. They understand how to connect through culture & arts in the most authentic ways and so working with them made me feel confident that they would be able to carry out my vision”, says Heron Preston.       Crafted in collaboration with Heron Preston, Level 0 01 is a rectangular silhouetted acetate frame with 100% UV protected black lenses. The solid, wide sunglasses are accentuated by the bold edges and level details on each temple, combining both brands’ identities into one design.     Crafted in collaboration with Heron Preston, Level 0 01(B) is a rectangular silhouetted acetate frame with 100% UV protected black lenses.

Fashion Icons are not immediate. They require visionary design but also visionary consumers. For a short, but intense, period in the 1980s, future icons of C.P. Company and Sebago were purchased, traded, worn, and repurposed by a group of young Italian fashion cognoscenti whose choices created the first streetwear movement in Italian fashion history.     Years later, the two brands join forces to celebrate 50 years since Massimo Osti launched C.P. Company and the concept of Italian Sportswear.     The capsule collection pays homage to those aesthetic references of one the most influential Italian subculture. The C.P. Company M.t.T.N. windbreaker jacket, in 3 color ways (yellow, red and blue), is an updated replica of an archive item from mid-1980s, which has been one of the first experiments by C.P. Company in dyeing a garment in nylon and cotton. While dyeing, the nylon is completely dyed whereas the cotton on the inside is “soiled” by the dye and assumes a lighter tone.     The Sebago shoes is the Docksides, one of the most iconic shoes of the brand. Launched in 1970 it has always been the symbol of saltwater, air, sun and adventure. For this special capsule, it has been created in a limited edition, manually overdyed in the same windbreaker's colours.   50.cpcompany.comsebago.com Icons are not immediate.

Filling Pieces opens brand new Flagship Store in the heart of Amsterdam

Fashion Amsterdam fashion brand Filling Pieces has opened a new Flagship Store. Located underneath their head office at Spuistraat 168, the brand’s Flagship retail space will offer the full brand experience, complemented with music, events and special collaborations.     “In a time where retail is facing immense pressure, it is forced to change drastically in order to survive. With our Flagship Store we are reshaping the conventional notion of the retail experience by translating our brand values into a space, and turning it into a community hub where we can bring like minded people together. It is, quite literally, the center of the Filling Pieces universe.” - Says founder and creative director Guillaume Philibert.     After opening their first Satellite store in the 9 streets in Amsterdam last year, Filling Pieces continues their physical retail expansion with a fully flexible retail space. Like their Satellite Store, the Flagship is designed by former Filling Pieces Art Director Daniele Misso, who continues the aesthetic of the Berenstraat store into the Flagship via hard contrasts between products and materials, using metal and concrete, with bright colour accents throughout the space.   “For the Flagship Store design, we drew inspiration from the Italian Superstudio movement, which emerged in the late 60s. It’s design methodology is based on partitioning a space via grids, and using them as a guideline for incorporating certain design elements. The light installation was designed to give the store a sense of continuity, and the feeling of one big space which holds smaller, strategically placed elements and structures. The open retail floor, for example, has grids which hold seating areas where people can interact with each other, as well as a mix of sculptural art installations and product displays. The rear grids of the space, which hold the lounge area and fitting rooms, were used to create yet another, more intimate experience using a sheltered structure and rich material textures. As a whole, the store projects the feeling of a contemporary art gallery; where all the elements become sculptural at the service of the Filling Pieces collections, yet at the same time provide a social setting for the brand’s community”, explains Daniele Misso.     CREDITS: Design: Daniele Misso  Photography 1: Ewout Huibers (@ewouthuibers) ​Photography 2: Daniele Misso (@daniele.misso) Amsterdam fashion brand Filling Pieces has opened a new Flagship Store.

Louis Vuitton presents the "Charlie sneakers"

Louis Vuitton presents the "Charlie sneakers"

Accessories With its eco-responsible design made of 90% recycled and bio-sourced materials, Charlie, revealed on 12th November 2021 is the first ever unisex sneaker by Louis Vuitton. Charlie introduces new perspectives to the world of nely crafted eco-designed sneakers.     Staying true to its innovative mindset, Louis Vuitton presents Charlie, a sneaker model vibrating at the pace of modern times. Available in sizes 34 to 47 (3 to 13 in US sizes) in a low and high-top version, this new must-have for all wardrobes, regardless of gender, is ideal for an everyday life encompassing mobility, comfort and high quality, values dear to the House. Charlie marks an important step forward in terms of eco-responsibility, as it challenges all the current standards thanks to its eco-conception featuring 90% recycled and bio-sourced materials.     The concept of circular creativity has been applied in a holistic way, from the studio sketches to Louis Vuitton's shoes workshop in Fiesso d'Artico, northern Italy. This is how Charlie’s sole — which accounts for 50% of the sneaker's weight —, made up of at least 94% recycled rubber, is record breaking while remaining supple and shock-absorbing. The upper part is composed of smooth and grained synthetic material, produced from recycled polyester and a layer of Biopolioli, a corn-based plastic. The entirely recycled laces echo the tongue patch made with ECONYL®, a 100% recycled and 100% recyclable nylon derived from nylon waste, also used on the back of the Charlie and for the House’s signature. The inside sole and lining are respectively composed of recycled polyurethane and recycled polyester.     Pushing this approach even further, Louis Vuitton has redesigned the traditional packaging, protecting Charlie with a felt made with TENCELTM , branded fibers originated from renewable wood sources certified by FSC®(Forest Stewardship Council). FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified. The shoe box, made up of 100% recycled cardboard, becomes a bag, transportable thanks to a handle, also in TENCELTM wood based fibers, thus making it possible to save around 70% of materials for the two available sizes. The use of plant-based inks as well as the shoe box’s interior, which has been left in raw kraft paper, also reduce the impact to the minimum of this innovative packaging.     “Our committed journey” is Louis Vuitton’s sustainable development plan, in line with the LIFE360 (LVMH Initiatives For the Environment) plan. Through six lines of action, it aims to preserve natural resources (sustainable supply of materials, contribution to climate protection, circular approach of creativity) and to have a positive impact on society (diversity and inclusion, commitment to local communities, development of know-how).     Find out about their commitments, targets and news on louisvuitton.com With its eco-responsible design made of 90% recycled and bio-sourced materials, Charlie, revealed on 12th November 2021 is the first ever unisex sneaker by Louis Vuitton.

VALENTINO DES ATELIERS

VALENTINO DES ATELIERS

Fashion A Haute Couture collection. A community of artists. A dialogue of inspirations. A project by Pierpaolo Piccioli Curated by Gianluigi Ricuperati     With the artists Joel S. Allen, Anastasia Bay, Benni Bosetto, Katrin Bremermann, Guglielmo Castelli,Maurizio Cilli, Danilo Correale, Luca Coser, Jamie Nares, Francis Offman, Andrea Respino, Wu Rui, So aSilva, Alessandro Teoldi, Patricia Treib, Malte Zenses. And with the participation of Kerstin Bratsch.   Valentino Des Ateliers is a project deeply wanted by Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli, according towhom ‘Fashion is not ‘art’, because the latter has no purpose outside of itself, while the rst always has a practical scope, a function, a use. Acknowledging differences is the rst step in educating ourselves towardsa mutual listening, made of curiosity, enthusiasm and respect. This listening needs time, just like Haute Couture and at the end of the day like art. That’s why, this project’s progress has been slow, a pace perhaps unusual for our actual world but right and intimate for the world I would like to live in.’   Guided by these values, Maison Valentino decided to entrust to the dialogue with artists the ‘invention site’ of this season’s Haute Couture Collection, which is traditionally the fashion sector closest to the values of uniqueness, singularity, research and experimentation that are so inherent to the art practice.   The idea is to draw inspiration from the work of a group of contemporary artists, chosen together with Gianluigi Ricuperati, in order to create the collection’s dresses. And to inspire them in return, asking them to ‘respond’ with their own creativity to the extraordinary forge of knowledge and talent in craftsmanship, textiles, tailoring, colors that feeds Haute Couture.   But the process was not limited to this: the two sides, the artists’ Ateliers and Valentino’s, worked together to design and create some of the pieces, in a way of being and doing which is at once both singular and plural, individual and collective.   In fact, thanks to a series of live and remote encounters, the artists - mostly painters, since painting is to art as haute couture is to fashion, being both languages eternal and material, traditional and ever-renovating, real renewable sources of beauty - have nourished the vision of Pierpaolo Piccioli and Valentino.   It is therefore a translation between different languages, a complex and delicate passage between the two-dimensional nature of painting and the three-dimensional one of fashion. Which, moreover, finds its ultimate and fundamental purpose in the dressing of the body - which is at the center of everything.   The name of the project, Valentino Des Ateliers, contains its salient features: the dynamism of conversation, the multiplicity of teamwork, always taking the side of talent.     The collection is presented at the Venice Biennale, in the absolute and natural space of the Gaggiandre, where Vuslat Foundation commissioned the installation of “Idee di pietra – Olmo”, 2008 (bronze, river stone, water); Curated by Chus Martinez, Special Event at the La Biennale di Architettura 2021, emerging from the lagoon observing the catwalk along which the clothes will be presented.   Vuslat Foundation wanted to identify in this work a reference to its main mission, supporting the principle of generous listening: listening to the planet, listening to each other, listening to ourselves. In the words of Pierpaolo Piccioli, ‘Venice was part of the vision I had from the very beginning: it was the only place in the world in which to present such a collection, a context where nothing can be added or subtracted: the light and power of Venice are the perfect setting in which I’d love to immerse my work.’   According to curator Gianluigi Ricuperati, ‘we must imagine Valentino Des Ateliers as a concert for two distinct worlds - painting and Haute Couture, contemporary art and clothing art - in which each side own voices listen to each other’s song before pronouncing themselves.’ A Haute Couture collection. A community of artists. A dialogue of inspirations. A project by Pierpaolo Piccioli Curated by Gianluigi Ricuperati     With the artists Joel S. Allen, Anastasia Bay, Benni Bosetto, Katrin Bremermann, Guglielmo Castelli,Maurizio Cilli, Danilo Correale, Luca Coser, Jamie Nares, Francis Offman, Andrea Respino, Wu Rui, So aSilva, Alessandro Teoldi, Patricia Treib, Malte Zenses. And with the participation of Kerstin Bratsch.   Valentino Des Ateliers is a project deeply wanted by Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli, according towhom ‘Fashion is not ‘art’, because the latter has no purpose outside of itself, while the rst always has a practical scope, a function, a use. Acknowledging differences is the rst step in educating ourselves towardsa mutual listening, made of curiosity, enthusiasm and respect. This listening needs time, just like Haute Couture and at the end of the day like art.

SAINT LAURENT MEN'S SPRING & SUMMER 2022

SAINT LAURENT MEN'S SPRING & SUMMER 2022

Men Green Lens is a large-scale installation by artist Doug Aitken, commissioned by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent. A living art-installation and a cultural stage, set in Venezia, Italy, where the city landscape creates a strong eco narrative within the artwork that speaks to the idea of the future world.     Located on the island of Isola Della Certosa, Green Lens is a living experiential artwork and also a destination, a place to explore, to inspire and to be inspired.     It will evoke the future through its crystalline reflective interior which reveals a kaleidoscopic view and dense botanic environment. It will be a freestanding artwork, and from the exterior, it will create a combination of reflections mixed with clouds, mist and wild green vegetation evoking a mysterious presence. Inside the sculpture there will be an enormous living kaleidoscope-like space that reflects the landscape, sky and the shifting surroundings.     This installation turns the landscape into a living abstraction.     Green Lens sparks dialogue that links the natural landscape with our future. In the 21st-century, we look toward to the future and how to harmonize with the natural environment, striving to create a new balanced world. We seek an environment where nature is empowered again, creativity is championed, and the weight of the past lifts, becoming fluid and inspiring.     In concomitance with Biennale of Architecture, the artwork will be accessible until the end of July, like a liquid architecture, creating a fully immersive environment. The idea is to encourage all visitors to look towards a positive view of the future, a synergy where natural landscape and innovation merge.     Green Lens will also be activated with a sequence of performances and conversations that are thought-provoking and inspiring, focusing on the future as interpreted by musicians, speakers and dancers. “What is the Future?” is the narrative threaded throughout the project. These activations will be filmed and released for the public to have access to a living artwork and stage for voices, creativity, culture, performance and music.     “Green Lens is a living artwork. It is both an artwork, installation and stage. It’s like a lighthouse, that one can journey to and have a very personal experience, while it also transmits light, ideas and questions. A focal point that allows all of us to share our ideas and visions for the future post Covid...a celebration and inquiry into the future.” - Doug Aitken     “Saint Laurent’s cult iconography always combined creative disciplines across art and fashion. Through those collaborations I want to merge different fields’ artistic visions in a unique artwork.” Anthony Vaccarello Green Lens is a large-scale installation by artist Doug Aitken, commissioned by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent. A living art-installation and a cultural stage, set in Venezia, Italy, where the city landscape creates a strong eco narrative within the artwork that speaks to the idea of the future world.     Located on the island of Isola Della Certosa, Green Lens is a living experiential artwork and also a destination, a place to explore, to inspire and to be inspired.     It will evoke the future through its crystalline reflective interior which reveals a kaleidoscopic view and dense botanic environment.

TOMMY HILFIGER AND ACTOR AND ACTIVIST, INDYA MOORE CO-DESIGN GENDER FLUID CAPSULE COLLECTION

Fashion Tommy Hilfiger announces the launch of theSummer Pre-Fall2021TommyXIndya capsule collection co-designed by non-binary actor and activist, Indya Moore. The collection celebrates the uniqueness, beauty and diversity of the global community and the belief that great style knows no boundaries, with a range of size-inclusive, non-gendered designs.The TommyXIndya partnership builds on Tommy Hilfiger’s ambitious People’s PlaceProgram, a three-pillared platform with the mission of advancing representation in fashion and beyond. The TommyXIndya capsule will be available starting July 13th in the US on tommy.com, starting July 20th globally on tommy.com and at select retail locations in Europe.     “Great style knows no boundaries, and this has always driven my dream to create fashion for all,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “Our People’s PlaceProgram is a huge step in this direction, as we continue to work hard to advance representation and further inclusivity across all areas of fashion.This collection embodies everything we stand for. From the design process to the campaign, the  TommyXIndyapartnership is here to make people feel seen, accepted and included. This message means so much to everyone at Tommy Hilfiger. Working with Indya to share their story has been a unique and inspiring experience.We're so proud to share it with the world.”     In co-designing the TommyXIndya capsule collection, Indya Moore sought to empower their community to express themselves without limitations. From the polo shirt, Oxford button-down shirt and bandeau top, to the pin-stripe blazer and double-bridged sunglasses, each style was inspired by a signature piece from the TOMMY HILFIGERarchive and reimagined to respect multiple gender expressions. Features such as widened shoulders and adaptable silhouettes aim to encourage continuous self-expression, fluidity and exploration. The capsule also tells Indya Moore’s personal story, with details like their initials in collegiate font, their hometown of the Bronx, New York spelled across the chest, and a lotus flower graphic running throughout, symbolizing rebirth, growth and self-actualization.     “This capsule goes beyond great style,” said Indya Moore. “It breaks a cycle and sets a new standard across the industry. Too many people are made to feel that something is wrong with them just for being themselves. It means everything to me to know that with our capsule, no one is made to feel wrong or different or broken. Everyone works perfectly for this collection, no matter who they are.”     TheTommyXIndya campaign aligns with Tommy Hilfiger’s People’s PlaceProgram ambition to create opportunity for creative talent from underrepresented BIPOC communities and increase visibility to foster a diverse and inclusive community in front of, and behind the camera. Shot in the Bronx by Myles Loftin, the campaign is a celebrationof Indya Moore’s hometown, symbolizing a return to their roots, proud and confident of their growth. In a celebration of individuality and self-expression, the campaign features five groundbreaking activists sure of their place in the world and ready for adventure – confident, beautiful, seen and celebrated exactly as they are: Indya Moore (@indyamoore):  The groundbreaking star of FX television series Pose and one of Time magazine’s 2019 100 most influential people in the world. Indya Moore is a vocal advocate for trans rights. Chella Man (@chellaman): Multimedia artist Chella is a deaf, transgender man of Chinese and Jewish heritage. He is the author of the book, Continuum, which chronicles his intersectional experiences. Gia Love (@love.gia): Activist and model Gia is the creator of the “What’s Your Fantasy” campaign that advocates for the rights of black transgender women. Cory Walker (@corywalkers): Cory is a model and actor based in New York City. They are represented by New Pandemics, a casting and management agency leading the fight for meaningful LGBTQIA+ representation.  Pidgeon(@pidgeon) Intersex advocate and co-founder of the Intersex Justice Project, Pidgeon was honored as an LGBTQIA+ Champion of Change by the Obama White House.     As part of the partnership, donations were made to three causes that resonate with both Indya Moore and Tommy Hilfiger’s values:  Rainbow Railroad, a non-profit that helps persecuted LGBTQI+ individuals around the world to find safety; Reuniting of African Descants (ROAD),a Black trans-led grassroots project invested in advancing the social and economic well-being of African Descendants, with an urgent focus on queer, same-gender-loving, transgender, and non-binary people, and ultimately the entire community; and the Global Coralition who focuses on accelerating marine restoration with local island communities by combining the power of art and science. Inspired by the spirit of these charities, Indya Moore also designed three charms that feature on the TommyXIndyabag and hat.   Tommy Hilfiger’s mission is to become a leading sustainable designer lifestyle company that “Wastes Nothing and Welcomes All”, through how it creates its product, manages its operations, and connects with its communities and stakeholders.
