GIVENCHY DEBUTS "TEASER" CAPSULE COLLECTION BY MATTHEW M. WILLIAMS

Fashion Givenchy is pleased to unveil a “Teaser” capsule of clothes and accessories from Creative Director Matthew M. Williams’ first collection for the House.     An edited selection from the Spring-Summer 2021 ready-to-wear collection features playful, slightly subversive and effortlessly elegant looks for both women and men. Directional pieces accentuate new tailoring for women as embodied by a long, fitted blazer with a draped collar and slim, high-rise trousers with fusing at the ankles. Denims are embellished with audacious, intricate treatments that give them unique crackled or lustrous finishes. A soft, denim-like jacquard with a textured weave reprises the House’s iconic 4G emblem. Statement outerwear includes a lightweight, tailored three- quarter length coat in croc-print calfskin bonded with nappa, and voluminous urban windbreakers also in croc-print leather or in black ottoman.     Key pieces for men include a single-breasted jacket with an overlay collar and the 4G emblem discreetly embroidered on the lining. Classic-fit trousers nod to the iconic Antigona bags with original yet discreet metallic details, as do boxy shirts with zip and snap closures. An oversized parka in technical ottoman emphasizes Givenchy’s of-the-moment urban spirit, with design elements that make it both functional and elegant. Hoodies and sweatshirts, too, are embellished with newly restyled Givenchy emblems.     A love of hardware being central to his fashion aesthetic, Matthew M. Williams created a series of tech- forward prints for T-shirts with a 3D chain-embossed detail at the neck or trompe l’oeil renderings of locks and eyelets clenched over spliced “GIVENCHY” lettering.     This season’s essential bags likewise feature distinctive hardware that was specially developed by Matthew M. Williams for Givenchy. The new Antigona in black box leather now has dual Givenchy signatures, longer handles and a 4G padlock. Additional styles include two cross-body bags, the unisex Vertical mini with chain and the Antigona U for men.     Footwear includes the Lock ankle boot, the Marshmallow wedge slide for women and flat sandal for men, and the GIV 1 high-performance men’s sneaker with a lightweight, transparent sole, in black or white.     The statement-making flat cap with horns and a black leather belt with a G-chain buckle round out this premiere.     The “Teaser” capsule collection will premiere exclusively in seven Givenchy stores in Europe, Asia and the US, as well as on givenchy.com in selected countries from December 1st to 22nd, 2020. It will be followed by the first official drop by Matthew M Williams, for Summer 2021, which will bow acrossGivenchy’s worldwide retail network on February 26th, 2021.

Kaspersky and KRAKATAU present unique collection customized by your digital imprint

Kaspersky and KRAKATAU present unique collection customized by your digital imprint

Fashion Today, self-expression is not only about showing our individuality through the clothes we wear and how we look but also by what we do online - with many of us using new media to share our views and beliefs. How can people create their digital identities and express themselves while keeping their unique personality safe online? To raise awareness about the importance of privacy and freedom of self-expression, Kaspersky and international techware brand KRAKATAU have launched a collection of garments that can be customized via an owner’s digital identity imprint – the Safe_expression collection.   According to recent Kaspersky research, 37% of millennials think that they are too boring to ever be the victim of cybercrime. However, analysis of several Darknet markets by Kaspersky experts shows that our data can be valuable not only for us but also for cybercriminals. Thus, among the most prized and desired data sold on these markets are selfies that are shared with documents, such as passports or drivers’ licenses (worth up to $40-60), medical records (up to $30), credit card details (up to $20), PayPal accounts (up to $500), and full ID information (up to $10). This information can be used for various malicious purposes, from using peoples’ data to receive money, to blackmailing them.   The internet and online services give us vast opportunities to share our views and connect with people around the world, and we need to make sure it is a safe place to express ourselves. Today, being an individual means being brave and bold with your opinions and the task of safely expressing ourselves becomes a non-trivial one. Kaspersky is committed to protecting people’s unique data and aims to create opportunities so people can express themselves safely.     The exclusive collection designed with KRAKATAU invites you to create a garment that shows off your unique personality and reveals how ready you are to protect your privacy. The clothing items are based on a person’s digital imprint. By simply answering a few questions from a special chat bot about your online behavior and privacy habits, you will receive your very own unique print. The print is crafted from unique algorithms that analyze users’ privacy concerns. The more a person is concerned about their privacy – the more complex or the more harmonious a print will be.     “Expressing individuality has always been important for people and today we have a lot more opportunities to do it digitally. We see how people can create a positive change in the world by sharing their stories and what they stand for. But it’s also important that our self-expression should also be safe as each one of us is unique and the data we share online is of exceptional value, making it crucial for us all to know how to protect it,” comments Andrew Winton, Vice President for Global Marketing at Kaspersky. “By creating this collection with KRAKATAU we want to talk about privacy and safety in a way that it can relate to fashion and simply explain how your self-expression can remain independent and protected.”   “What we especially liked about this collaboration idea is the creative Do It Yourself (DIY) element, where people can customize clothes to fit their personalities. What’s more, the customization is not based on people’s emotions but on how they use their devices and their digital habits, which is highly important in today's digital world. In the end, security has become the key theme of the collection – it demonstrates how you can keep your data safe online, while the clothing items from the collection protect you from harsh real-world weather conditions,” comments the KRAKATAU team.     The Safe_expression limited collection uses experimental technologies and features t-shirts, sweatshirts and jackets in contrasting black and neon green colors. The items in the collection are made of Repreve functional recycling insulation and membrane fabric with water-repellent coating. Each piece is complemented by minimalistic design marks and can activate the idea behind the collection, which is to create a personalized garment customized by your digital imprint in an online builder, via the brand's website https://krakatauwear.com/pages/safe-expression.

In conversation with Creative Director of Lardini, Luigi Lardini

In conversation with Creative Director of Lardini, Luigi Lardini

Fashion We had a delight speaking with the Creative Director of Lardini, Luigi Lardini.     How are you staying creative during these weird times this year?   In these difficult times I keep creativity with the memories of the past. Sometimes a simple smell or a song on the radio is enough to take me back in time, reliving those wonderful moments.  Creativity is also kept alive by remembering perfectly the way we dressed once, or by finding some old drawings, photos from the past. My style office thus revisits old garments by updating them in models.  In addition, I observe a lot of the way women dress. I believe their way of dressing is fresh, updated and looks to the future. I take inspiration from their colors, fabrics and volumes of some garments.      What is the inspiration and story behind the new Fall & Winter collection?   We started to design the moodboard of the next AI21/22at the end of the first lockdown and this led us to reflect on something:the importance of some values related to the world and the beauty of nature that surrounds us,which gained more strengththanks to this forced stop. From this reflection it was easy to direct us to "Land ART", to this form of contemporary art that is expressed with the intervention of man in the territory of nature.This is the new mood of Fall Winter collection.      How are you as a brand following and embracing sustainability aspects?   We have been following the sustainability issue carefully for some seasons, inserting fabrics such as polyester from the recovery of plastic bottles or GRS certified recycled fabrics, combined with recycled accessories such as buttons and labels in the collection. Also for the women collection sustainability is essentialand we use the fake eco-friendly furs.As humans, we all have to contribute to make the world a better place. For the next SS22 we are confident to create our own “sustainable” total look capsule.     The selection of shirts for Autumn and Winter includes an introduction to a new “techno fabric”. Can you tell our readers more about it and the new fabric.   The introduction of a technical fabric in "formal shirts”has revolutionized the way they are used. Comfortable, light, anti-crease and breathable, it is a highly flexible fabric that adapts to every movement giving maximum comfort. To be worn even with the most formal of Lardini suits, the "techno fabric" has made it possible to give a valid alternative to classic cotton but adding the performance of an increasingly popular "casualwear".     How do you ensure that the furs  used in your designs are eco-friendly?   We have never liked to use fur of any kind, in replacement when necessary, we prefer to prepare collars or insides of the fur garments that derive from soft alpaca or camel yarns already used in knitwear.     When did you start your company Lardini and what made you establish a fashion brand? What is the story and ambition behind it?   Our 40th anniversary in the business has been a great achievement. In these years we have always tried to combine heritage and innovation.  The first me, with a passion for style and elegance, started out in the Seventies by creating a menswear collection. Mybrother andsisters, Andrea, Lorena and Annarita, joined forces with meand we opened a tailoring workshop, in 1978, which attracted some of the biggest names in the fashion industry.  The first Lardini menswear collection was launched in 1998, and it attracted the interest of the international markets in just a few years.  Ambition and the key of our success is the constant research of the fabrics innovation, passion and love for quality. There are many artisan phases to produce sophisticated details, and to create a garment. The combination of craftsmanship, creativity and sustainability are part of our made in Italy.  In the meantime, we prepared also the ground for the second generation, already an important part of our company, that allows us to face the future with new ideas, tools and modern skills.     As Lardini is a family business, how is it creating and working with your siblings?   With my brother and sisters it’s very simple, we grew up together. We created this company with courage and a lot of passion. For us there is no difference, the family is the company and the company is part of our big family. Within it we have our own well-defined and distinct roles as well as for the second generation, each of them have their own roles. Let’s try to be united. Always. Up to now we have been a great team.      Can you tell us more about the symbol of the company “lapel flower”. What made you decide to make it the symbol of Lardini?   Since I launched the brand, the greatest success has been the invention of the Lardini flower, a small identifying object for our brand… It has allowed growth in all markets even a few customers were buying more garments also for having the flower in different colors! The Lardini flower is a great sign of romance “there is nothing more romantic than bowing down in front of a woman, handing her the lapel flower”.     What do you have in store for 2021 and what are your creative plans for next year?   Our project plans for the next 2021, look towards a solid and constant creative process without ever stopping and looking to a better future. We will continue to work in research, also developing small capsule collections, the second edition of the “Luigi Lardini” capsule and the collaboration with the Japanese designer Yosuke Aizawa.While for the following SS22we are planning a total look capsule dedicated to the world of sustainability.     We had a delight speaking with the Creative Director of Lardini, Luigi Lardini.     How are you staying creative during these weird times this year?   In these difficult times I keep creativity with the memories of the past.

REDVALENTINO PRESENTS THEIR NEW COLLECTION FOR SPRING 2021

Fashion Nature and the city. A new sense of escapism emerges. A liberating desire of freedom takes center stage. As the frantic rhythm of the city slows down, Mother Nature reclaims its space. The quotidian life merges with the dream and nature ties the knot with beauty in the Red Valentino Spring 2021 collection. The Roman fashion house taps German artist Timo Helgert, known for his escapist virtual installations, to photograph the collection against digitally created backdrops fusing the urban landscape with the natural environment.   If the scenario evolves, the quintessential spirit of the RED Valentino remains the same: feminine yet audacious, elegant yet rebellious. The brand’s eclectic girls mix the high and the low. Their street attitude nds a balance with their spontaneous gentle sophistication. Dresses and separates, injected with delicate romanticism, are matched with urban outerwear pieces. Sweet embroideries of archival lilies of the valley pop up on both deconstructed faille frocks enriched with oversized bows and sleek skirt suits, as well as functional windbreakers. Jacquard trench coats, cocoon capes and knitted cardigans with an artisanal feel are punctuated by ribbons. Timeless gingham patterns are decorated with blooming owers on frocks cut in bold silhouettes, while the lightweight point d’esprit tulle skirts are worn with practical quilted outwear styles. Suggestive patterns of landscapes with an Oriental feel add an intriguing twist to uid dresses and oversized pajama sets with a relaxed edge. Denim gets a special treatment with Japanese pottery-inspired prints. In keeping with the eclectic spirit of the ready-to-wear lineup, the bag collection is a mix of functionality, urban and sporty touches, as well as feminine, romantic vibes. New styles include the “Knot Me Up!,” a nylon crossbody style decorated with a maxi knot; the “Minimaxi Chain” and “Minimaxi Scoubi,” showing a macro chain and a scooby doo knot handle; the “Rebel Bow” range, featuring a a clutch, a micro pouch and a hand bag showing soft maxi bows. The look is completed by versatile footwear styles, spanning from urban cool combat boots and sneakers with chunky soles to elegant kitten heel sandals.

Antony Micallef Presents His Latest Artwork At Hong Kong Spotlight by Art Basel

Art Antony Micallef is known is described as a modern Expressionist, and he's widely recognized as one of the finest painters in contemporary art today, Micallef roots his work in social commentary and self-examination. Known for his visually charged figure paintings, Micallef's latest body of work, Constructing Auras is being shown at Hong Kong Spotlight by Art Basel, opening today.     We see a continuation of the artist’s last exhibition, entitled Raw Intent from 2016. Here, he built up a relief-like surface with heavy paint to depict a figurative mass in front of a muted background. Utilizing an impasto technique, the material is pushed to its extreme and blurs our reading of painting and sculpture. Through the use of tools such as scrapers and palette knives, Micallef twists the paint to further distort the depicted figure in the hope of realizing an embodiment that will "breathe" on its own.   “I want my forms to encompass a sense of life. This body of work is all about the materials used and the palpable essence of the material depicting a sense of being. All the things I was interested in and influenced by that I never thought I could incorporate into my art have amalgamated into this body of work like one big mixing pot." Antony Micallef   Evolving on from this, Constructing Auras, which consists of 14 works, highlights the close relationship between the creator and the object and the co-dependence between these two entities. There's a fusion of forms that manifested itself through the artist’s meticulous studies of forms from nature, drawing inferences from a wide range of disciplines from paleontology to couture textile, influenced by forms of nature, the early works of Alexander McQueen, as well as the V&A's Fashioned From Nature exhibition. This also brought about a new technique that saw Micallef apply layers of paint - much of which was recycled from the walls of his studio - as if they were a textile. The result? Compelling sculptural paintings that resonate with us all.     Constructing Auras, will run from 27 - 30 November 2020 at Hong Kong Spotlight by Art Basel.
