VERSACE LAUNCHES LA VACANZA MINI CAMPAIGN

Fashion Photographed by Camille Summers-Valli   Need a vacation? So do we.   Allow Versace to transport you to the crystal-clear waters and blue skies of Liguria with the brand’s latest mini campaign.     “With this shoot I wanted to create something fun that captures the spirit of a vacation. We all miss travel. We miss the excitement of being somewhere different, of meeting with friends and sharing experiences. These images are about enjoying life and feeling free, they encapsulate that summertime feeling of endless possibilities.” - Donatella Versace   A sequence of imagery and film capture candid moments of a very Versace vacation. Think sun-kissed models, glamourous seaside locations and iconic summer fashion. The brand’s Greca motif is ever-present throughout the series, ensuring the Versace DNA appears front and center. Shot by Camille Summers-Valli, the images highlight an offering of beach essentials, from swimsuits and silk shirts to travel bags and pool towels.   A tongue-in-cheek video diary sees the models recalling how they spent their summer, but flashbacks reveal they’re not quite telling the truth. Playful and optimistic, the series hopes to spread a little Versace glamour this vacation season.   #VersaceLaVacanza   Credits: Chief Creative Officer: Donatella Versace Photographer: Camille Summers-Valli Casting Director: Piergiorgio Del Moro Stylist: Allegra V Beck Hair Stylist: Patti Bussa Make-Up Artist: Luca Cianciolo Talent: Evie Harris, Blésnya Minher, Rozanne Verduin, Simone Bricchi, Lucas Barski, Loic Namigandet Photographed by Camille Summers-Valli   Need a vacation?

Maison Valentino confirms Zendaya as the protagonist of the new Valentino Roman Palazzo Fall 21 campaign

Fashion “Throughout an aesthetic choice, it is possible to represent a whole identity. This is the power of fashion and this is the power of human beings”. Pierpaolo Piccioli   Zendaya is the protagonist of the new campaigns for Valentino, David Sims the photographer of this narration, shooting her with his incomparable approach at the Palace Theatre in Los Angeles.   The actress has the capacity to express all the values of the brand through a single shot, turning a Valentino creation into something extraordinary. She enters the values of equality and inclusivity that Pierpaolo Piccioli and the Maison stand for, but also conveys a contemporary romanticism.   The Valentino Roman Palazzo advertising campaign continues the narrative of the Creative Director, which shot the collection in Rome, in an unexpected place in which grandeur has given way to intimacy. A delabré Palazzo with no decorations or objects. An empty space where the atmosphere became empathetic thanks to a diverse humanity, a diverse casting.   Sims, known for pushing the boundaries of fashion photography, has captured a raw and radical theatrical act in Los Angeles. Zendaya seated at the centre of the stage in a set that recalls the classical portraiture of the sound stage theatre: the point of view has changed. It is no longer a photography set, but a proper theatre. The atmosphere merges with the gestures of the actress. Time stops behind closed doors. The ability to make a theatrical moment something authorial.   Pierpaolo Piccioli continues his conscious and progressive way of making culture. The punk gesture that reopens and takes possession of the theatre, its space, and its language. The exploration, at the same time intimate and provocative, an empty space that for a moment becomes for all.   The identity of Valentino today materializes with a clear and incisive sign: both sensual and romantic, nourished by memories but not nostalgic. An identity that reflects in a new generation.     #ValentinoRomanPalazzo #RockstudAlcoveValentinoGaravani #ValentinoDivas “Throughout an aesthetic choice, it is possible to represent a whole identity.

FENDI launches the Summer 2021 Capsule featuring FF Vertigo collaboration with Sarah Coleman

FENDI launches the Summer 2021 Capsule featuring FF Vertigo collaboration with Sarah Coleman

Accessories Happy, colorful, irresistible… FENDI celebrates the summer season with a dedicated capsule collection injected with a joyful, uplifting mood. Dominated by yellow and light blue tones, the Summer 2021 capsule, spans from sophisticated and eye-catching bags and accessories to compelling ready-to-wear for women, men and children.      Seventies’ references and Nineties’ vibes fuse in a charming line-up, where FENDI’s outstanding craftsmanship and innovative, forward-thinking approach shine bright.      As part of its Summer 2021 capsule, after the official launch at Design Miami, FENDI reiterates its collaboration with New York-based visual artist Sarah Coleman, known for her disruptive manipulation of designers’ materials that she employees to rethink and repurpose everyday objects with an ironic filter.    Sharing the same passion for taking handcraft in new directions, Coleman and FENDI Accessories and Menswear Artistic Director Silvia Venturini Fendi worked together on a new interpretation of the iconic FF logo pattern, which was revisited through a Seventies’ psychedelic filter. The result is FF Vertigo, a new magnetic motif offering a twisted, turned version of the classic FF pattern.    In the accessories range, the yellow FF Vertigo is printed through an ink jet technology on the mineral tanned leather used for the legendary Peekaboobag. The same Vertigo pattern, in yellow or blue variations, is also printed on cool and resistant coated canvas and pops up on a timeless tobacco jacquard fabric. Both the variations pepper chic and functional shoppers and the new Baguette 1997 bag, a re-edition of the brand’s signature accessory, featuring slim sides and an adjustable and flappable handle, to wear under the arm, revamping the iconic spirit of this legendary style. FENDI Vertigo also decorates new bag designs, including the contemporary and cool FENDI Baulettomini bag together with the textile’s world that features featherlight fabrics ideal for the summer season. The capsule includes a fun, practical and versatile FENDI Mini Sunshine Shopperin straw with colored profiles in contrast and a more traditional leather version both with the iconic FENDI ROMA logo.     As part of the collaboration developed with Sarah Coleman, FENDI also peppered its PeekabooX-Tote and the Baguette 1997 with the FF Fisheye motif where the signature FF logo gets wavy and fluid, as it is seen through a fish-eye lens.    Cherry on top, inspired by the project showcased at Design Miami, Coleman and FENDI are also presenting a Peekaboo ISeeU style crafted from an FF logo padded nappa leather which is treated to glow in the dark.    On this occasion the Peekaboo ISeeU Small is presented, enlarging the Peekaboo ISeeUfamily; powerful attitude and proportions, it sprinkles the magic of the FENDI ultimate Icon in a smaller size appearing in timeless bicolor version in both smooth leather and Selleria.      Inspired by the sense of adventure and freedom deeply linked with the outdoor lifestyle, the ready-to-wear offering combines ultimate style and functionality. In the women’s RTW range, multi-pocket skirts, transformable jackets and cargo pants injected with an utilitarian feel are worn with hyper feminine bodysuits and draped tops showing the FF Vertigo pattern, which is also rendered on sporty windbreakers worn with coordinated gym sets, on one-piece swimsuits and bikinis, as well as on lace dresses, trench coats and fluid pants.      The same combination of effortless elegance and contemporary functionality is infused in the Men’s collection, deeply inspired by an outdoor mood. Lightweight yet resistant fabrics, including the FF Vertigo jacquard, give a chic yet practical twist to T-shirts, bowling shirts, bermudapants, as well as cool fisherman’s vests matched with coordinated baggy pants and polished raincoats and summer suits crafted from lightweight organza. The FF Vertigo multicolor motif is rendered on embossed leather on the FENDI Packstyle, while the flat Baguette, coming in a medium and mini version, are the go-to pieces enhancing the chic yet functional appeal of the collection. Adding an extra exciting touch to the lineup, the Peekaboo ISeeUbag is shown in an iconic nappa version embossed with the FF fish-eye motif.

Dominated by yellow and light blue tones, the Summer 2021 capsule, spans from sophisticated and eye-catching bags and accessories to compelling ready-to-wear for women, men and children.      Seventies’ references and Nineties’ vibes fuse in a charming line-up, where FENDI’s outstanding craftsmanship and innovative, forward-thinking approach shine bright.      As part of its Summer 2021 capsule, after the official launch at Design Miami, FENDI reiterates its collaboration with New York-based visual artist Sarah Coleman, known for her disruptive manipulation of designers’ materials that she employees to rethink and repurpose everyday objects with an ironic filter.    Sharing the same passion for taking handcraft in new directions, Coleman and FENDI Accessories and Menswear Artistic Director Silvia Venturini Fendi worked together on a new interpretation of the iconic FF logo pattern, which was revisited through a Seventies’ psychedelic filter. The result is FF Vertigo, a new magnetic motif offering a twisted, turned version of the classic FF pattern.    In the accessories range, the yellow FF Vertigo is printed through an ink jet technology on the mineral tanned leather used for the legendary Peekaboobag. The same Vertigo pattern, in yellow or blue variations, is also printed on cool and resistant coated canvas and pops up on a timeless tobacco jacquard fabric. Both the variations pepper chic and functional shoppers and the new Baguette 1997 bag, a re-edition of the brand’s signature accessory, featuring slim sides and an adjustable and flappable handle, to wear under the arm, revamping the iconic spirit of this legendary style. FENDI Vertigo also decorates new bag designs, including the contemporary and cool FENDI Baulettomini bag together with the textile’s world that features featherlight fabrics ideal for the summer season. The capsule includes a fun, practical and versatile FENDI Mini Sunshine Shopperin straw with colored profiles in contrast and a more traditional leather version both with the iconic FENDI ROMA logo.     As part of the collaboration developed with Sarah Coleman, FENDI also peppered its PeekabooX-Tote and the Baguette 1997 with the FF Fisheye motif where the signature FF logo gets wavy and fluid, as it is seen through a fish-eye lens.    Cherry on top, inspired by the project showcased at Design Miami, Coleman and FENDI are also presenting a Peekaboo ISeeU style crafted from an FF logo padded nappa leather which is treated to glow in the dark.    On this occasion the Peekaboo ISeeU Small is presented, enlarging the Peekaboo ISeeUfamily; powerful attitude and proportions, it sprinkles the magic of the FENDI ultimate Icon in a smaller size appearing in timeless bicolor version in both smooth leather and Selleria.      Inspired by the sense of adventure and freedom deeply linked with the outdoor lifestyle, the ready-to-wear offering combines ultimate style and functionality. In the women’s RTW range, multi-pocket skirts, transformable jackets and cargo pants injected with an utilitarian feel are worn with hyper feminine bodysuits and draped tops showing the FF Vertigo pattern, which is also rendered on sporty windbreakers worn with coordinated gym sets, on one-piece swimsuits and bikinis, as well as on lace dresses, trench coats and fluid pants.      The same combination of effortless elegance and contemporary functionality is infused in the Men’s collection, deeply inspired by an outdoor mood. Lightweight yet resistant fabrics, including the FF Vertigo jacquard, give a chic yet practical twist to T-shirts, bowling shirts, bermudapants, as well as cool fisherman’s vests matched with coordinated baggy pants and polished raincoats and summer suits crafted from lightweight organza. The FF Vertigo multicolor motif is rendered on embossed leather on the FENDI Packstyle, while the flat Baguette, coming in a medium and mini version, are the go-to pieces enhancing the chic yet functional appeal of the collection. Adding an extra exciting touch to the lineup, the Peekaboo ISeeUbag is shown in an iconic nappa version embossed with the FF fish-eye motif.
