Adidas and Allbirds announced a collaborative project

Accessories Adidas and Allbirds announced a collaborative project to accelerate solutions to reduce the 700M metric tons of carbon dioxide emitted by the footwear industry annually1. The partnership aims to innovate on manufacturing and supply chain processes in addition to exploring renewable material resources, resulting in the creation of the lowest carbon footprint ever recorded for a sports performance shoe.      To achieve this unprecedented goal, Adidas and Allbirds will open the doors to each other's suite of sustainable innovations and unlock the opportunity to set a new industry standard in the fight against climate change.       "Our brands don't want to just participate in the sustainability conversation, we want to continue being catalysts and creators of substantial improvement," says James Carnes, VP of Adidas Brand Strategy. "The recent progress that our brands have made in the name of sustainable innovation has created the perfect momentum for this partnership to influence industry practices forever.       "There is an urgent need to reduce our global carbon number, and this mission is bigger than just Allbirds or Adidas," says Tim Brown, co-CEO of Allbirds. "Whether we realize it or not this is a race that we are all running together as a planet and it is one that trumps the day-to-day competition of individual companies. I am hopeful that this partnership will be an example for others to follow as we pursue a more sustainable, net zero carbon future."       Everything has a carbon footprint-the production of a product emits carbon dioxide (along with other greenhouse gasses) that contributes to climate change. To create a product with the lowest carbon footprint possible, the collaboration will explore innovations across the entire supply chain-from material choices to manufacturing facilities and transportation methods that utilize renewable energy and fuels. Currently, the average running shoe has a carbon footprint of approximately 13.6 kg CO22.      "While we are prioritizing the planet, we're staying committed to improving the athlete's experience," says Carnes. "That means the end result should yield no compromises for athletes or the planet."     The project is dedicated to creating an athletic shoe that meets Adidas performance standards, which are among the most stringent in the industry. To ensure we are holding ourselves to the highest standards, the shoe's carbon footprint will be analyzed using Allbirds's life cycle assessment tool, which measures the end-to-end carbon emissions.       "Our great hope is that this partnership will catalyze other people to share both their best ideas and research so that we can work together in the fight to live more sustainably," says Brown. "This is a problem that won't be solved by one company alone."       Adidas has committed to a 30% reduction in its carbon footprint by 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 as part of its End Plastic Waste initiative. Allbirds's "Tread Lighter" program represents its ongoing practices to measure and reduce emissions across the entirety of the business, offsetting anything remaining to maintain a 100% carbon neutral business.       To find out more about Adidas' End Plastic Waste initiative, visit www.adidas.com/sustainability. To learn more about Allbirds's "Tread Lighter" program and the company's carbon reduction initiatives, visit www.allbirds.com/sustainability.

Louis Vuitton opens a newly designed store in Rotterdam’s department store de Bijenkorf

Fashion Louis Vuitton announces the opening of a new store in Rotterdam’s department store de Bijenkorf.   Two years after opening its pop up store at de Bijenkorf Rotterdam, Louis Vuitton unveils a new permanent store located on the ground floor of the city’s historical department store. Enriched and rejuvenated, the new space will now showcase Louis Vuitton’s latest women’s and men’s products, including leather goods, small leather goods, shoes, accessories and Les Parfums Louis Vuitton. In addition, the House’s perfumed candles collection by Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud are collectable for the first time in the Netherlands.     Travel Destination: Bordered by a lavish garden of wildflowers, the store’s façade echoes Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram flowers and blows a breath of springtime. Adorned with bright latticework panels, the transparent walls open the interior to the exterior and invite clients to immerse themselves into the House’s history. At the entrance, the womens- and menswear reveal themselves in a dynamic interior concept, embellished with handpicked designer furniture and modern elements. The modular architecture and the combination of diverse materials and textures make the space elegant and contemporary: the subtle use of Louis Vuitton leather, along the shelves with different shades of woods, reflects the House’s savoir-faire.  Art finds space inside the store and complements the interior architecture. Local elements from Dutch designer Dirk Vander Kooij, as well as vintage furniture from the 1950s by Louis van Teeffelen and Friso Kramer, bedeck the men’s space. A piece from Piet Hein Eek takes centre stage at the women’s universe, lightened by a sunset photograph by Sølve Sundsbø.    Bespoke Offer: In addition to the complete collection of Les Parfums Louis Vuitton and scented candles, the store will also feature the Colognes perfumes collection, including the latest creation California Dream, which will be exclusively pre-launched in Rotterdam. Clients can also discover the House’s personalisation services such as hot-stamping for leather goods, My LV Heritage and My LV World Tour. A special stamp has also been produced, paying tribute to Rotterdam and representing the Erasmus bridge. The stamp can be imprinted with the hot-stamping technique for leather goods in the men’s universe of the store.      Store Information: Louis Vuitton Rotterdam de Bijenkorf Coolsingel 105 3012 AG, Rotterdam Louis Vuitton announces the opening of a new store in Rotterdam’s department store de Bijenkorf.   Two years after opening its pop up store at de Bijenkorf Rotterdam, Louis Vuitton unveils a new permanent store located on the ground floor of the city’s historical department store.

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!

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.
