Isabel Marant Spring Summer 2021 Men’s Collection

Fashion Week This summer, the Isabel Marant man escapes from Paris to Pantin. Along the Canal de l’Ourcq, the concrete passagewaysof the CN D echo both the raw energy of the look and the frank geometry of the eece pieces.     Flexibility and freedom come from dancing. This cloakroom of everyday life lives in motion. The long coats’ sleeves as well as those of the shirts and knitwear roll up, revealing the wrists. Multicoloured nylon jackets are tied at the waist, indicating a signature form of irreverence.     Naturally, one print matches another as if they were made for each other. The sportswear codes are mixing with those of ikat pieces which look as though they had been brought back from a trip. On a pastel weave, the bright colours take the wardrobe to the sunny beaches.     He’s there behind the tinted lenses of the rst Isabel Marant sunglasses.     Photo Credits: Photographe : Marton Perlaki Models : Alpha Dia & Braien Vaiksaar Place : Centre National de la Danse à Pantin This summer, the Isabel Marant man escapes from Paris to Pantin.

‘The adventures of Zoooom with friends’ Digital Paris Fashion Week, July 2020.

Fashion Week This season’s story is somewhatunique and calls for a di erentkind of introduction. You see, a motley crew of characters had ar- rived in Paris, one unrulier than the other. Zoooom with friends, they called them, for Zoooom was their guide and time travelled fast in their pace.   In the age-old City of Lights, no stranger to the rebel, our colour- ful characters loaded their LouisVuitton trunks with the nest n-eries they could nd, boarded abarge and sailed into the sun, which always rises in the East...   Through the ve days of fashionweek, the colourful rascals swept through the city’s gilded salons, went wild at Louis Vuitton, and cruised down the River Seine leav- ing behind them a rainbow tracetrans xed across the Paris sky.   And when they left, Paris felt a little empty. Where did Zoooom with friends go? Would they everreturn? Sure they would, but rstthey had a voyage to make. What you had witnessed here could be the end of a particularly riotous story. But it wasn’t. It was the beginning.   “Sacrebleu!” cried the good folk of Paris as Zoooom with friends turned tradition on its head, painting the town and the hallowed halls of Asnières. But fright soon turned to fondness, for unusual as they were, they brought only good intentions. This season’s story is somewhatunique and calls for a di erentkind of introduction.

INTRODUCING THE SECOND CHAPTER OF #ACCIDENTALINFLUENCER – THE DIGITAL PROJECT DEDICATED TO THE GUCCI TENNIS 1977

Fashion Gucci announces the second chapter of its digital project #AccidentalInfluencer, the intriguing and playful take on the idea of imitation and replication, seen through the lenses of London based artist, photographer and director Max Siedentopf – which debuted last February.     The focus is once again on the range of Gucci Tennis 1977 sneakers, this time enriched by the recently introduced styles from the Gucci Off The Grid collection, designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele with motifs of the House and constructed with recycled, organic, bio-based and sustainably sourced materials – including ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon made from nylon offcuts and pre- and post-consumer waste.     For this new chapter, Siedentopf leads us through the every-day life of these eclectic characters accidentally matching furniture pieces and objects in their homes. The result is an array of hypnotical and haunting scenes, where individuals seem to suggest improbable visual coincidences between their looks and settings.     The campaign will be launched on Gucci’s social media platforms, and will also include bespoke videos for TikTok, dedicated clips for Instagram Stories, and a section on the Gucci App that allows customers to virtually “try on” the Gucci Tennis 1977, using the pioneering augmented reality technology the House has introduced in June 2019.     #accidentalinfluencer Gucci announces the second chapter of its digital project #AccidentalInfluencer, the intriguing and playful take on the idea of imitation and replication, seen through the lenses of London based artist, photographer and director Max Siedentopf – which debuted last February.     The focus is once again on the range of Gucci Tennis 1977 sneakers, this time enriched by the recently introduced styles from the Gucci Off The Grid collection, designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele with motifs of the House and constructed with recycled, organic, bio-based and sustainably sourced materials – including ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon made from nylon offcuts and pre- and post-consumer waste.     For this new chapter, Siedentopf leads us through the every-day life of these eclectic characters accidentally matching furniture pieces and objects in their homes.

WILD ROSE COLLECTION, ODE TO THE BOTANICAL ROSE

Jewelry The Wild Rose high jewellery collection designed by artistic director Charlotte Lynggaard depicts the uncontrived luxury of nature.     Meticulously created by hand by master goldsmith, the satinised gold petals delicately render the silky texture and natural curves of a simple wild English rose. This perfect flower crafted from 18K gold, appears to have been picked directly from a delicate garden and is an understated piece of splendour.     The brooch is a celebration of modern statement jewellery, featuring a slender, diamond-paved stem adorned with 90 diamonds and delicate, hand-satinised gold petals.      The earrings convert into a true statement piece with a diamond or coloured precious stone pendant.     A breath-taking trophy piece for a very special occasion is the Wild Rose Tiara. The design features a ravishing palette of hues and textures. Blooming sprouts in light yellow amber, coral, grey and blush moonstone beautifully bring out the sparkle and fire of 136 diamonds set in pavé sprouts and pellets. An irresistible enhancer of female beauty on an unforgettable day.     www.olelynggaard.com The Wild Rose high jewellery collection designed by artistic director Charlotte Lynggaard depicts the uncontrived luxury of nature.     Meticulously created by hand by master goldsmith, the satinised gold petals delicately render the silky texture and natural curves of a simple wild English rose. This perfect flower crafted from 18K gold, appears to have been picked directly from a delicate garden and is an understated piece of splendour.     The brooch is a celebration of modern statement jewellery, featuring a slender, diamond-paved stem adorned with 90 diamonds and delicate, hand-satinised gold petals.      The earrings convert into a true statement piece with a diamond or coloured precious stone pendant.     A breath-taking trophy piece for a very special occasion is the Wild Rose Tiara.

Berluti & Brian Rochefort collaborate

Berluti & Brian Rochefort collaborate

Men Connectivity becomes an art form in the face of separation. For the beginning of 2021, Berluti adapts to the challenges of our moment in time in a long-distance collaboration with the ceramic artist Brian Rochefort for its first creative collaboration on ready-to-wear. Recognising the values of a new era, creative Director Kris Van Assche embraces a desire for communication and concord in a collection of clothing created in partnership with the American sculptor. True to its conception – adigital effort between the designer’s home in Paris and Brian Rochefort’s studio inLos Angeles – the behind-the-scenes of the collaboration was previewed in a video between the two collaborators, screened online as part of Digital Paris Fashion Week on 9 July 2020. The film can be accessed on YouTube.com/Berluti.     The garments and accessories – to be fully unveiled and launched in stores in January 2021 – expand on the new codes established for Berluti under Kris Van Assche. A passionate ceramics collector, the creative Director’s vision is continually informed by the textures and colours related to ceramic art.This, in turn, draws natural parallels to the patina methods practised by Berluti’s own artisans in Italy. In Brian Rochefort oeuvre – an experimental and progressive force in the ceramic arena –Kris Van Assche identified a common thread with the sartorial dialogue between tradition and change embodied by Berluti. Inspired by volcanoes and exotic plants, the artist’s exuberant signature blendsintuitively with the augmented natural texture and colour language exercised at the house.     Berluti approaches the concept of collaborations from a supplementary and illuminating perspective. When, in 2019, Kris Van Assche partnered with the furniture house Pierre Jeanneret, the collaboration illustrated aspects of craft and colour shared by the two parties. For the evolving clientele of Berluti, the approach manifests in curiosity by association: a new proposal within an aesthetic to which the client already relates. In his collaboration with Brian Rochefort, Kris Van Assche builds on the character of Berluti in a gesture of connectivity and communication key to the time in which we find ourselves.     “Right now, collaboration feels like a meaningful way to create something new. As something of aceramics nerd, I have admired Brian Rochefort’s expression for a long time, and am fortunate enough to own one of his works. I couldn’t be more excited to interpret his vision through the lens of Berluti,”comments Kris Van Assche. Creative Director of Berluti. Connectivity becomes an art form in the face of separation.

FENTY releases 6-20 as third drop

Fashion The peak of FENTY’s summer trip, Drop 3 brings the shapes, prints and emotion of the release together in an after-party.     Celebrating the free spirit and curious nature of youth, the psychedelic print hinted at in the previous two drops is in full flow now as a full-bleed digital print on a stretch jersey T-shirt, leggings, and long-sleeved dress with the release’s signature side-slit. Drop 1’s tie-dye pinstripe poplin shirt and pencil skirt are also reborn in the acid flower print, along with the draped white silk shirt and bascule hoodie.     There’s a late 90s/ early 00s undertone to certain silhouettes, evoking nostalgia for the youth culture of that era: a backless top in two colorways, a white bustier top that drops to the floor, and a one-strap asymmetric dress, all in chiffon. Playing to the casual styling common to every youth aesthetic, each piece can be dressed down with jeans or cropped shorts.     Drop 3 is where we introduce our new fashion jewelry offering, in keeping with the theme of casual, multifunctional styling. Psyche flower charms made from resin and strass in red, green, pink, silver and gold adorn various lengths of a brass ball chain necklace with palladium finish. Transforming to suit every mood and outfit, the chain works as a long necklace, belly chain, doubled up necklace, tripled up anklet or bracelet. A single flower earring comes with its own super dangly chain.     That completes our 6-20 release, embodying the free, fun spirit and limitless possibilities of youth.

Fall-Winter 2020/21 Haute Couture collection Photographed and captured by Mikael Jansson

Fashion Week “I was thinking about a punk princess coming out of ‘Le Palace’ at dawn,” reveals Virginie Viard. “With a taffeta dress, big hair, feathers and lots of jewellery. This collection is more inspired by Karl Lagerfeld than Gabrielle Chanel. Karl would go to ‘Le Palace’, he would accompany these very sophisticated and very dressed up women, who were very eccentric too.”   While the Spring-Summer 2020 Haute Couture collection was clearly influenced by the simplicity and rigour of the abbey at Aubazine, where Gabrielle Chanel had been placed as a child, the thirty looks of the Fall-Winter 2020/21 Haute Couture collection are marked by a desire for shimmering opulence and jewelry. Some are even accompanied with jewels from the CHANEL High Jewelry collections.   “I like working like this, going in the opposite direction of what I did last time. I wanted complexity, sophistication.”   All of CHANEL’s embroidery partners, including the Métiers d’art Lesage and Montex, as well as Lemarié and Goossens have contributed to the precious tweeds embellished with sequins, strass, stones and beads. A diamond-like braiding adorns the ink black trouser suits. Short dresses with cinched waists and corolla skirts rustle alongside long dresses with a very Grand Siècle allure and the noble authority of heroines escaping from 19th century tableaux.   “It’s true that I thought about paintings, but it was more German paintings,” says Virginie Viard. “I really had Karl’s world in mind…”   Black and anthracite grey tonalities are illuminated with flashes of pink. Painted laces enrich bolero jackets along with tweeds made of silver streaked ribbon; a jacket with an entirely smocked waist is worn over tapered boot-trousers in black suede, the ultimate sign of an ultra-rock romanticism. “For me, Haute Couture is romantic by its very essence. There is so much love in each one of these silhouettes.”   See more on chanel.com   #CHANELHauteCouture “I was thinking about a punk princess coming out of ‘Le Palace’ at dawn,” reveals Virginie Viard. “With a taffeta dress, big hair, feathers and lots of jewellery.

RALPH & RUSSO PRESENT FIRST COUTURE COLLECTION IN DIGITAL FORMAT FOR AUTUMN-WINTER 2020/2021

Fashion Week With the global coronavirus pandemic presenting unprecedented changes to the industry and the safety of all brand supporters at heart, Ralph & Russo, in partnership with the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, bring their Autumn-Winter 2020/2021 couture collection to the global stage in the form of a unique digital experience. Illustrating the journey behind this season, the experience showcases the way in which this collection was brought to life, through a number of digitised looks on our custom brand avatar, several pieces made in our atelier, and the balance of the offering created in sketch form.     Reflecting on the far-reaching beauty of our natural world and the digitally charged future, Creative Director Tamara Ralph presents a collection infused with wonder. Encouraging all to take refuge during this difficult time in the world of fantasy, to look beyond and to dream, this season all are invited to partake in a special experience as we unveil our Autumn-Winter 2020/2021 couture collection through the lens of technology.     Abundant with vibrant tones of yellow-gold and sky blue, hues of lavender and fuchsia pink, the collection harkens to the natural palette of our planet, citing seven of the globe’s most unique and awe-inspiring locations, and enhancing silhouettes with intricate floral details. From three-dimensional organza blooms to swathes of floral taffeta and tweed - each distorted, blurred like water colours, and digitally printed – the collection defies singularity, bridging the gap between technology and the elements.     Uniquely presented against the seven contemporary wonders of the world, this season is brought to life by an equally international individual; our very own avatar and muse, Hauli. Named in traditional Swahili after strength and power, Hauli is at once rooted in African origins and a reflection of womankind; of the beautiful and inspiring women bringing courage and positive change to all four corners of the world.     In combining two seemingly opposed dimensions, Tamara Ralph not only presents the brand’s first ever digital show experience, but continues to represent art and the world in its purest form; as truly knowing no bounds.

Moose Knuckles launches second round of 'Moose Knuckles gives a F*ck' global fundraising initiative

Fashion International luxury outerwear brand Moose Knuckles is working with visual artists from around the world to create and sell one-of-a-kind jackets as part of a global initiative to raise funds for those suffering during the pandemic. The project is the latest in a series of global fundraising initiatives by Moose Knuckles to support the ongoing pandemic, including donating profits from online sales and creating masks for hospital workers.     With each artist using a white Moose Knuckles Lead Rider jacket as their canvas, the finished one-of-a-kind wearable artworks from round one’s NYC artists, has completely sold out.
