FENDI presents the new Men’s Spring & Summer 2022 Collection

Fashion Week From the unprecedented perspective of the FENDI headquarters inside the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, the landscape sprawls out in a 360° vista towards the seven hills of Rome, the Apennine mountains and glimpses of the Mediterranean Sea. Nature and architecture melt into a spectacular canvas of soft colour, evolving through the course of the day to reveal the dynamic topography of the region in an infinitely changing light. “How you see things – and from where you see them – has never been more important,” says Silvia Venturini Fendi, Artistic Director of FENDI Accessories and Menswear. “Our singular point of view in this period has modified our perception of the world – and mine has become so linked to what I see from the arches and the rooftop of our building. It is almost like a bird’s eye view of Rome from here. The colours and the perspective are always changing – the soft palette of the Roman sky across the day is so beautiful and I wanted it to be a focal point of this collection.”   Reflections on watching the world from above have inspired the FENDI Men’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection, a rich interplay of lightness and ease with a laser sharp focus on the future of luxury. A subtle palette echoes spring flora and the transient skies in pastel shots of lemon and lime, ice blue, lavender, pistachio and peony against mineral shades of travertine, chalk, graphite and slate. Like a daydream from FENDI to the world, the immediate surroundings of the Roman hinterland inform prints, shapes and workmanship, in an effortless study of proportions and scale. Plucked from the FENDI archives, an illustrated map of Rome becomes FENDI Land, a cartographic drawing of the city where the Palazzo Fendi springs up at its centre and the Tiber river flows through a labyrinth of buildings and streets adorned here and there with freehand FF logos. In a harmonious suite of topographic simulations entitled FENDI Earth, abstract contoured motifs float across linen silk suiting, jacquard denim, plush crochet tees and intarsia shearling.   The conceptual distortion of scale creates new tailoring volumes, as hybrid summer suiting combines a multitude of materials, shapes and utility details. Abbreviated wool jackets are cropped at the torso or split with nylon organza and peak lapel linen blazers are fitted with pen pockets and earpods compartments. Pockets drop beneath hemlines and jackets unbutton down the hips, whilst below the waist multi-pocket city shorts define the silhouette alongside straight trousers split at the ankle or panelled in a binary of double cotton and suede.   New outerwear exhibits the inimitable prowess of the FENDI leather atelier, with vented trench coats, roomy windcheaters and overshirts punctuated by Selleria stitching and embossed detailing on reversible suede, calfskin and sustainable garment-dyed cotton. Shirting in crisp poplin or light woven cashmere features fabric buttons for an all-over monochrome tonality broken elsewhere by a series of collaged fabrications featuring mismatched jacquard collars and striped cotton sleeves. Knits follow the engineered contours of the FENDI Earth motifs in featherweight cashmere intarsia ensembles alongside zipped two-tone double cashmere and polo tops in ribbed or crochet cotton. Mock neck pullovers and tees in crochet mink scoop up in the front, exposing utility belts strung with FENDI loop charms.   The FENDI Men’s Spring/Summer 2022 accessories collection is a playful escape from reality, subverting everyday objects with the heights of FENDI craftsmanship. Swimming goggles and swimming caps in collaboration with ARENA join ping-pong racket bags as ironic summer essentials, and the Baguette is shrunk as a jewellery pouch on a fine waist chain. The Peekabooappears in matte nylon, finished with burnished edges or Selleria macro stitches, while the Baguette returns as a roomy messenger or perspex clutch. New luggage shapes in canvas and printed FF logo mesh feature a bonded convex profile for a ‘fisheye’ effect, and the new Fendiness utility buckle appears on a series of nylon webbing backpacks and crossbody styles.   Evolving from the moulded FENDI Flow sneaker, buckled sandal styles join a monochrome slip-on knit sneaker with injected appliqué details in a pastel palette. Soft suede desert boots with FF logo buckles expound upon the season’s outdoor inspirations alongside flatform wicker double strap sandals finished in plush details or Selleria stitching.     Directed by Nico Vascellari, the FENDI Men’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection film is a majestic ode to the Roman landscape with an homage to the tropes of early science fiction cinema. Mapping the parameters of the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, models reveal the building’s Rationalist architecture in precise twists and turns as day fades into night and the FENDI headquarters comes to life in a spectacular pulsing light show. Conceived by the Italian composer Alessandro Cortini, the film is accompanied by a 9-minute bespoke electronic composition for FENDI featuring synthesiser tracks inspired by interstellar travel and new perspectives on the monumental setting as seen from above.

ETRO PRESENTS THE NEW MEN'S COLLECTION FOR SPRING & SUMMER 2022

Fashion Week Travelling in a Joyful State of Grace   Everything revolves around sine waves, there are ups and downs, apparently it seems that everything is going wrong, then suddenly it restarts better and stronger than ever. - Franco Battiato, Sicily 2010   This show is for you, Maestro! With Gratitude, Admiration and Love, Kean   The “Travelling in a Joyful State of Grace” collection wants to be a tribute to Franco Battiato, a man, a musician, an artist and a thinker that deeply influenced the vision and the life of Kean Etro. The two met in 1985 when Kean, still very young, was not involved yet in the ETRO business and that year created for the brand the stage set for Franco Battiato’s “Mondi Lontanissimi” tour.   A metaphysical trip. Beyond time and space.   For Spring Summer 2022, ETRO men’s creative director Kean Etro explores one of the most iconic signatures of the brand, its nomadic spirit.   Travelling also becomes a state of the mind and of the heart. Meditation brings to unexplored territories. In a joyful state of grace.   In the footsteps of Bruce Chatwin and of Dame Agatha Christie, ETRO’s nomadic journey tinges with reminiscences of archeological explorations in sun-drenched lands, where reality and dream merge.   To the tone of Franco Battiato’s masterpiece ‘L’Era del Cinghiale Bianco’, ETRO’s soul travelers take the catwalk, - set in the surreal, suspended atmosphere of the Scalo Farini area in Milan, where nature unexpectedly makes its way through the concrete, - wearing languid, slightly sensual styles, designed to feel good.   Nothing is as it seems. The sunrise on a citrus grove inspires the sorbet and vitamin colors, while the darker tones with silver accents echo a fascinating dusk. Everything starts where it ends.   More sporty pieces layered on kaftans are crafted from silk cadi and the classic tennis knitted vests this time feature silk georgette inserts for a new free-spirited and meaningful effortless approach.

THE DIOR CRUISE 2022 COLLECTION

THE DIOR CRUISE 2022 COLLECTION

Fashion Dior chose Athens, an exceptional destination – the cradle of Western civilization and of European arts – to present its Cruise 2022 collection. In the heart of the city dedicated to Athena, Maria Grazia Chiuri reinvents her genealogy and tweaks House codes like the peplum. In that spirit, she created her own map of Greece, informed by the personalities and images that nourished her references and poetry, from the works of Giorgio De Chirico to vases decorated with wrestling matches by Alexandre Iolas. Giant silhouettes stand out in close-up on sketches by the artist Pietro Ruffo, or are camouflaged on a selection of sportswear pieces. A series of white trouser suits evoking those worn by Marlene Dietrich structure a lexicon balanced between classicism and freedom: oversized houndstooth becomes Hellenized, the cannage motif takes on new abstractions, a star appears. An alliance of heritage and modernity that – within the iconic Panathenaic Stadium, the setting for the show – reveals a manifesto for a body that more than ever enjoys liberty of movement, performing without constraint.

Sir Art Studio Introduces “New You”

Art After a challenging year, talented local Amsterdam artists are eager to explore who we are post-pandemic with the new exhibition “New You” on display at the Sir Art Studio through September. The gallery is located on Amsterdam’s vibrant Albert Cuypstraat, down the street from Sir Albert hotel.   The Sir Art Studio was introduced in December 2020 by Sir Hotels and curated by Amsterdam-based trend watcher, creative consultant and art lover Bionda Sno, who said, “My goal is to introduce artists who are underexposed by the traditional institutions.” The Sir Art Studio is a platform for emerging artists. The range of different artistic styles offers works for art connoisseurs and buyers, but also people who are new to the Amsterdam art scene.       EXHIBITION: “NEW YOU” – On display from June 5 to September 15, 2021     What started as a three-week lockdown became 15 months of separation and silence.

Finally, Matt and Romain (Hanging Petals) remind visitors to be kind to the new ‘you’ with bouquets that had a past life and now live on.     During Amsterdam Art Weekend, the Sir Art Studio is open from June 17–19 and 24–26 between 12:00–17:00.
