MVP Wardrobe presents the new collection for Fall & Winter

Fashion MVP Wardrobe for this “first collection” Fall Winter 2021 takes inspiration from modern princesses. Special women who have put aside the label and have had the courage to affirm themselves. The best examples are: Emmeline Pankhurst, Lady D, Jacqueline Kennedy,Amelia Earhart and Anne Londonderry Kopchovsky.     The style and charisma of these women is perfectly reflected in the collection: many blazers and coats, with more oversized volumes than usual, that seem stolen from the male wardrobe, longuette skirts, but also mini dresses, trousers and shirts with a classic cut. Denim and knitwear are now among the protagonists of the brand.... The extremely feminine details of the covered buttons and perforated cuts, now a hallmark of MVP Wardrobe items, are inevitable. Crepe, viscose, cool wool, velvet and leather are the fabrics selected for these models with a classic, chic and elegant taste, but at the same time clean and refined. The color palette varies from all the now identifying and continuing shades of the inevitable black and cream, from camel to cream, with touches of strong colours such as red, pink and burgundy. Openwork cuts, geometries, tartan prints characterise and enhance the garments and their volumes. All perfectly mixed and matched in order to obtain sensual and impeccable looks of a true Modern Princess.

FENDI presents the new collection for Fall & Winter

Fashion Week Kim Jones’ Ready To Wear Autumn/Winter 2021 collection for FENDI offers a new chapter for the house, presented through an homage to its key codes and the women who have enshrined its legacy. Drawing upon the femininity and savoir-faire which have long defined the FENDI name, this is a celebration of extraordinary Italian elegance as seen from a new perspective.     The wardrobes of the five Fendi sisters offer a foundational resource: from the bell sleeves of a washed mink and bonded suede coat, to the pinstripes of their office attire now rendered in silken shirting or perfectly proportioned wool tailoring. A utilitarian shirt jacket, inspired by Silvia Venturini Fendi’s daily uniform, is elevated into a newly luxurious, shearling iteration with a bonded mink interior.  “The Fendi family are women of intellect who work hard – and that’s what I wanted to celebrate,” notes Jones. “A powerful dynasty.”     Double cashmere and camel outerwear which extends into mink tricot or wool-fringed scarves appears at once profoundly practical and deeply desirable, its form elsewhere translated into draped shirts and dresses. “I’m taking the amazing, strong women who I both know and work with, and listening to their needs,” Jones continues. “There’s a usefulness to the collection, explored in a chic, timeless way.”   Details drawn from Karl Lagerfeld’s legacy – the understated omnipresence of the Karligraphy monogram, or the FENDI Firstshoe whose architectural heel has evolved from an archival sketch – are reworked for a new era, while motifs from Jones’ Couture collection are reprised through marbled silk dresses, rosette blooms or delicate organza embroideries on jacquard knits.     The remarkable craftsmanship of the FENDI ateliers remains omnipresent throughout – in a mink herringbone jacket made featherlight through its suspended construction, leather suiting inset with ajour embroidery, or Karligraphy monograms laser cut into suede. The embossed Selleria stitching applied to gabardine trenches, double cashmere coats or leather accessories is a tribute to that meticulous exceptionalism – a quality most visible to the women who will wear the clothes. “Fun isn’t always just about bright colours,” says Jones. “It can be about really luxurious self indulgence, which pleases the person wearing it more than anyone else.”     This is a collection designed with those women in mind: clothing which translates everyday femininity into hyper-luxurious terrain.     Alongside the collection appears a wealth of new accessories for a new chapter, directed by Silvia Venturini Fendi. The debut of the FENDI First, which pays homage to the off-kilter irreverence of the brand, tilts the FENDI monogram into the frame of a clutch and is presented in myriad variations: from a size roomy enough to fit a tablet to a micro pouch strung as jewellery, and is rendered in shearling, leather, and exotics.     Elsewhere, new silhouettes are presented through the FENDI Way tote and FENDI Touch shoulder bag, while classics like thePeekaboo and Sunshine Shopper are seen from a new perspective, distorted into new proportions and decorated with Selleria details.     This season, the FENDI hand in hand project – which enlists craftspeople from each of Italy’s 20 regions to reimagine the iconic Baguette – translates Campania’s artisanal excellence into a limited-edition series of objects d’art. Here the same, intricate wood inlays found in 6th century Benedictine monasteries become a veneered, structured Baguette with a baroque floral motif.   Delfina Delettrez Fendi introduces a new jewellery range for the house, FENDI O’Lock, which evolves the FENDI logo into graphic modernity through its carabineer form, and comes complete with padlocks that can only be opened by dialing FENDI. Wax seal pendants stamped with Karligraphy are strung from golden chains, and metal cuffs, covered in leather and embellished with Selleria details, directly reflect the empowered sensibility of the FENDI woman.         Show Credits:   Artistic Director of Couture and Womenswear Collections: @MrKimJones Artistic Director of Accessories and Menswear Collections: @SilviaVenturiniFendi Jewellery Creative Director: @delfinadelettrez Film Direction: @alexdebetak Design and show production: @bureaubetak Film Production: @bureaufuture Filming: @walterfilms Music: @michelgaubert Antiques: @galerie.chenel   Styling: @themelanieward Hair: @guidopalau Makeup: @peterphilipsmakeup Nails: @beautick_official Casting: @shelleydurkancasting   Special thanks to @therealswizzz Kim Jones’ Ready To Wear Autumn/Winter 2021 collection for FENDI offers a new chapter for the house, presented through an homage to its key codes and the women who have enshrined its legacy.

Moose Knuckles SS21 "Arise" Campaign

Moose Knuckles SS21 "Arise" Campaign

Fashion After a long, stagnant winter, luxury outerwear brand Moose Knuckles takes a moment to exhale as it extends a warm welcome to spring with its SS21 campaign aptly titled ARISE.     For almost a year, life on earth has come to a crashing standstill. As the mercury fell, options evaporated, and the realities of our "new normal" set in. With nowhere to go and nothing to do, hundreds of thousands put their lives on pause. Things got bleak, but a brighter day has finally arrived. Survival is no longer enough. Press play, get up, and start living.     "We saw this as a huge opportunity to let our consumer know we’re paying attention. Weknow they've been through the wringer. We went through it too. Our message to them isthere’s a light at the end of the tunnel." - Dominique Lagleva, Global Marketing Director.     To Moose Knuckles, SS21 represents a long-awaited breath of fresh air. One last moment to unwind before the world gets back up to speed. It's a homecoming marking the return of good weather, good company (outdoors and socially distanced of course), and good vibes.     Photographer Hugo Comte's masterfully arranged composition accentuates each subject's individuality without undermining the group dynamic. Each shot a reminder of the balance between our shared humanity and the diversity that makes the world so interesting.     "I wanted to express the symbiotic nature of individuality. The idea that everyone can be unique without letting their differences divide them." Hugo Comte, Photographer     Stylist Alex Harrington set out to illustrate the shifted perspectives developed by the onslaught of idle time that was 2020. Adroitly employing the collection's distinct silhouette and bold pops of color with unique yet purposeful layering and a wardrobe that reflects the creativity and vibrance of someone fresh off a year spent in hibernation.     "We put together an all-star team to help bring this concept to life. And everyone left their mark. Nothing feels better than seeing an idea evolve as the creative baton was passed from hand to hand. I couldn't be any happier with the way things turned out." - Brody Baker, Creative Director     As always, Moose Knuckles delivers a versatile collection of comfortable sportswear and transitional outerwear, all designed to promote freedom from the elements. The season also debuts Pack Your Moose, a range of unstoppable rainwear that takes a new approach to solve spring's unpredictable weather. If you've got a questionable meteorologist, this is the collection for you. On top of the unlined recycled nylon shells, bonded seams, and recycled hardware that provide our signature Moose Knuckles protection, each coat features a packable design and fastening system so you'll never get caught unprepared for the rain again.     The campaign launches Feb.23 2021 and will be available for purchase at Moose Knuckles stores, mooseknucklescanada.com, and luxury retailers worldwide.

BURBERRY AUTUMN/WINTER 2021 MENSWEAR COLLECTION

BURBERRY AUTUMN/WINTER 2021 MENSWEAR COLLECTION

Fashion Week ‘For my first Burberry menswear-focused collection, I wanted to celebrate the freedom of expression. Enclosed indoors, I dreamt of the outdoors and its beauty, fuelled by the thought of the creativity that comes when we are together. With this dream in mind, I became fascinated by the widespread British craft and outdoor movements of the early 20th Century, when people escaped to explore the unknown countryside. They formed communities with a deep respect for nature and the outdoors and looked forward to a future full of possibility. I was not only drawn to the artistry of their craft, colours and shapes, but also to their strong sense of camaraderie and friendship. This collection is an homage to the relationship between humanity and nature, where we can break free and come together to discover new forms of expression. It’s for those who are defining their own path, whose strength and energy have inspired this Burberry collection.’ Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer     The Burberry Autumn/Winter 2021 menswear collection gently challenges and subtly reinvents traditions, inviting freedom of expression. The collection itself is dynamic and young, vibrant and alive. Outerwear is key. Clothes are engineered to reflect motion and activity – with pleats, panels and fringes – as if moving in the wind. Layered pieces morph unexpectedly on the body. Tailoring has a sense of twisted classicism, whilst Burberry’s quintessential house codes – the trench coat and Burberry beige – are evolved.     THE COLLECTION:   Bringing a fresh perspective to the classics, the trench coat is combined with the Harrington jacket. Cotton gabardine and wool-twill car coats are fringed and cinched with scarf belts. Duffle coats are updated in striped wool with reconstructed pockets, and cropped silhouettes with bullion fringing and bold printwork. Knitwear and outerwear meld in modern juxtapositions: the V-neck of a sweater on a trench coat, and a double-breasted panelled jumper. Reconstructed varsity jackets feature in plongé leather and cotton cashmere with ‘B’ insignia. Bullion fringing adds a sense of ceremony to tunic shirts, silk crepe de chine vests and tailored trousers. Shirt dresses and pleated skirts are crafted for movement. The Burberry animal kingdom, a house code, is revisited. Animalistic prints and shapes, photographic mink and fox-fur shirts and pleated skirts, tactile faux-fur fabrications on hooded duffle coats and gilets. Tailoring is re-energised with a twisted classicism. A slim-fit tailored jacket with exaggerated lapels, worn with split tailored shorts over metallic mesh cycling shorts. Panel details transform an English-fit suit in wool ramie, and classic-fit trousers and tailored shorts in grain de poudre wool.     BAGS:   Introducing a reimagined messenger bag. The supersized silhouette features a reconstructed strap – a union of sartorial and hiking influences. Fabrications include faux fur, leather and the Thomas Burberry Monogram print. New iterations of the Pocket Bag family debut – a leather bum bag and backpack for wanderers, detailed with blanket straps.     SHOES:   Supple leather ankle and over-the-knee sock boots and sneakers on moulded soles, sculpted to resemble deer hooves. Details include crystals and metallic paillettes.     ACCESSORIES:   Deer motifs inspire the silhouettes of knitted beanies. A leather framed cashmere-Merino wool blanket, striped cashmere scarf, and walking umbrellas. Leather-clad carabiner charms, and lambskin bear-motif charms embossed with a logo graphic.     KEY PRINTS AND PATTERNS:   An homage to the natural world. Photographic animal-fur prints, and abstract and elemental artworks in vivid colours.     KEY COLOURS:   Burberry beige, bark brown, oxblood burgundy, city greys, pale blue and pink.     HAIR & MAKE-UP: Hair – Jawara Make-up – Isamaya Ffrench, Burberry Global Beauty Director ‘For my first Burberry menswear-focused collection, I wanted to celebrate the freedom of expression.

In conversation with Cesar Casier

Fashion Tell us about how your jouney in this profession started for you?  I started modeling when I was 18 years old and moved to New York when I was 19, where I lived for 8 years.I did campaign for Armani, Armani exchange, Squared, Levi’s, Reply, Tissot,… walked fashion shows for YSL, Dior, Missoni, Gucci,… And was featured in VOGUE PARIS, VOGUE HOMMES, L’OFFICIEL, NUMERO,…   In addition to being a model, food lover, traveler and proud author of my two cookbooks Model Kitchen and Cesar's Kitchen and the travel guide Trippin, I have launched the Cesar Casier Knitwear Collection. While growing  up, I was always surrounded by fashion. My mom owns a high-end fashion boutique “OONA" in Ghent and my stepmom is a fashion designer. They were my biggest influencers and shaped my views on fashion while growing up, the logical next step was to start my own collection.      100% MADE IN BELGIUM.   KNITWEAR COLLECTION:   The Cesar Casier Knitwear Collection is 100% made in Belgium, something that is very rare nowadays. Everything I design is produced in a small family owned factory located in Sint-Niklaas, a city between Antwerp and my hometown Ghent. Fact is that back in the days there were about 300 factories located in this area and now there are only two left, a sad reality. Therefore, it is important to support the revival of Belgian knitwear as much as possible!     GENDER NEUTRAL FASHION:   Next to my roots, my brand represents Gender Equality. A human right I hold dear and it is something I stand for. I translate this into my designs, as they are mostly unisex. I want my brand to lead the way in gender-neutral fashion. In my opinion, gender no longer dictates the way people dress and it does not force anyone into a box. That is why I try to design as much gender neutral pieces as possible, this allows us to express ourselves exactly the way we all want to. My designs are timeless, comfortable and basic, yet fashionable and with an eye for detail and great quality.     What does charity mean to you?   I've always loved nature and even more, the animals who live in it. That’s why, for every sold item on my website,  I’ll donate 1 euro to a charity. For my previous collection I’ve donated money to help save the dolphins, The Great Barrier Reef and the Giraffes in the wild. By donating money to a good cause, I want to send awareness to the public about the beauty of nature and to support animal and nature welfare!
