UNIQLO to Partner with Musée du Louvre from 2021

Fashion Global apparel retailer UNIQLO welcomes the year 2021 by announcing a four-year partnership with Musée du Louvre in Paris. The aim of the new partnership is to offer a wide-ranging program that matches the desire of both parties to better familiarize the public with the museum's must-see masterpieces and thereby increase the joy of art in daily life.       "I am honored and excited to be partnering with the world-renowned Musée du Louvre. This is a longtime dream come true,"said Fast Retailing Chairman, President, and CEO Tadashi Yanai. "UNIQLO has done much to date to share the pleasure of art with the general public, especially in keeping with our commitment to LifeWear, which is clothing designed to help make everyone’s daily life better. We hope that our partnership with the museum can enable as many people as possibleto experience and appreciate theuniversal beauty of the masterworks intheir collections."     As the first initiative in the program, the UNIQLO T-shirt (UT) brand will debut Musée du LouvreCollectionon February 4, with date to differ by market. The men's UT line was created by prominent British graphic artist Peter Saville,well-known for revolutionizing record cover designs in the early 80's, especially for Joy Division and New Order. His sophisticated graphic approach to the new collection concentrates on the inventory number system that museums use to catalog the works of art. Additionally UNIQLO will launch women's UTs featuring Louvre works with a focus on the female form as a universal message for diversity and expand its overallcollection with new items through 2024.     Starting spring 2021, UNIQLO will take over sponsorship of the Free Saturday Nights program that began in January 2019. Designed as unique, festive occasions, these night openings are aimed at encouraging new visitors to learn about the Louvre and its artworks in a more relaxed environment. For this purpose, the museum's opening hours are extended on the first Saturday of each month from 6 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. Visitors are invited to wander through the three wings of the Louvre, discovering masterpieces of art history and the little-known corners of the former palace of the kings of France.      Free Saturday Nights is popular; 160,000 people participated in 2019, mainly families and people working in the Paris region. Although temporarily suspended due to the current pandemic, this program is expected to resume its usual rhythm on the first Saturday of each month.     The UNIQLO partnership with the Louvre also includes support of the Mini-Discovery Tour, a new format launched by theLouvre in July 2020. Mostly dedicated to families, these 20 minutes guided tours will take place on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.     For more information about the partnership, including videos of interviews with museum personnel and comments from Peter Saville, please access website https://www.uniqlo.com/louvre-x-uniqlo/ Global apparel retailer UNIQLO welcomes the year 2021 by announcing a four-year partnership with Musée du Louvre in Paris.

Louis Vuitton Aerogram by Virgil Abloh

Accessories An aerogram is a lightweight sheet of writing paper that folds to form an envelope with a printed stamp, ready to be sent by airmail.     For Louis Vuitton, it symbolises the Art of Travel, a heritage close to the House’s heart that is intertwined with the most marvellous aviation experiences. Aerogram, the new collection of men’s leather goods, echoes this universe’s emblems, conveying a more contemporary than ever vision of travel.   Here, the edges are folded or bias cut at the ends, bringing to mind the shape of this historic letter associated with the rst Concorde journeys. A zipped pochette, a bumbag or a backpack, a Messenger or Keepall bag, a tote bag or a Soft Trunk Phone Box: all are crafted in black grained leather, with an exceptional suppleness resulting from special leatherwork in the House’s workshops. Connecting the heritage of travel with modernity, the Aerogram collection features clear-cut, almost architectural, lines that convey an utterly urban look created by Virgil Abloh.     On some pieces, a luggage tag, also in black leather, may evoke an on-the-go silhouette. The Louis Vuitton embossed leather signature on each piece is reminiscent of the seal, a relief promise of new horizons, from its origin to the destination of its dreams.     An aerogram is a lightweight sheet of writing paper that folds to form an envelope with a printed stamp, ready to be sent by airmail.     For Louis Vuitton, it symbolises the Art of Travel, a heritage close to the House’s heart that is intertwined with the most marvellous aviation experiences.

BANG & OLUFSEN INTRODUCES BEOSOUND LEVEL, A POWERFUL HOME SPEAKER MADE TO MOVE

BANG & OLUFSEN INTRODUCES BEOSOUND LEVEL, A POWERFUL HOME SPEAKER MADE TO MOVE

Design Bang & Olufsen  introduced Beosound Level, a portable wireless home speaker that delivers impressive sound, unrivalled craftsmanship and a modular design that improves longevity. With its slim design and built-in recessed handle, portability is at the heart of Beosound Level. Whether standing upright in the kitchen, lying flat on a table or hanging gracefully on the wall, the speaker intelligently changes its tuning to deliver an exceptional music listening experience in any position, in any room.     “Beosound Level is the ultimate speaker for people who want the flexibility and convenience of a portable speaker but don’t want to sacrifice on sound quality and multiroom connectivity for the ultimate music listening experience. It works effortlessly with Spotify Connect, AirPlay 2 and Chromecast and because of Beosound Level’s modular design, we are future-proofing Beosound Level so that it can deliver our signature sound for decades to come”, says Christoffer Poulsen, Senior Vice President and Head of Product Management at Bang & Olufsen.     A pure expression of timeless design by Torsten Valeur and crafted at Factory 5 in Struer, Denmark, Beosound Level showcases Bang & Olufsen’s unrivalled expertise in aluminium manufacturing with its pearl blasted aluminium frame. Using materials that soften technology whilst suiting any interior, the speaker covers are available in a natural oak veneer, which has been treated to highlight the natural grains and texture of the wood, reminiscent of luxury Scandinavian furniture, and a seamless knitted dark grey Kvadrat textile which makes Beosound Level inviting to touch and visually appealing from any angle.     Beosound Level can easily be carried around the home and even taken into the garden thanks to its wireless technologies and IP54 Dust and Splash Water Resistant Rating. The speaker’s user interface is seamlessly integrated into its aluminium frame and the buttons can be activated through soft touch, allowing you to reach your favourite song or radio station effortlessly. When approaching the speaker, Beosound Level lights up to greet you through integrated proximity sensors adjusting its brightness to suit day or night. After you are finished interacting with the speaker, the light slowly dims, allowing the minimal design to take centre stage.     AN ELEGANT CHARGING EXPERIENCE: When it is time to charge, Beosound Level has unique charging capabilities, including the easy charge solution, an aluminium magnetic plug which seamlessly clicks onto the back of the speaker. This innovative design makes charging easy, elegant, and as stylish as the speaker itself, so you can leave the charger on your tabletop with pride. Bang & Olufsen have also designed an optional wall bracket that allows you to charge the speaker whilst still listening to music and effortlessly detach the speaker when you want the music to move with you.     SUPERIOR SOUND THAT IS MADE TO MOVE: With 105 watts of music power, Beosound Level delivers excellent clarity and dynamic bass due to its powerful five-driver speaker setup with two 4” woofers, one 2” full range driver, two 0.8” tweeters and low distortion amplifiers which allows for adaptive sound staging and delivers 79dB bass capability and 96dB in mid-range loudness.   Beosound Level has advanced multi-channel supporting acoustic features including nextgeneration active room compensation and comes with industry leading 16 hours of playtime at typical listening volumes. This is made possible by intelligently analyzing the behavior and continuously adjusting the power consumption and tuning of the speaker. The audio architecture of Beosound Level has been created to automatically adjust its acoustic tuning from 180-degrees to 360-degrees based on the way it is positioned, optimising your listening experience.       IMPROVING LONGEVITY THROUGH DESIGN: Bang & Olufsen is renowned for its long-lasting products, and with Beosound Level the company is also introducing new solutions to fight technology obsolescence, enhance resource efficiency, and improve longevity. In addition to its timeless appearance, Beosound Level has been modularly designed for easy maintenance, service, and repair where customers can perform simple operations like replacing the battery and service partners can easily access vital parts of the speaker.     Beosound Level comes with Bang & Olufsen’s new replaceable streaming module, which will power all the company’s future home speakers. The module has been frontloaded with enough processing power and connectivity technology to receive new performance updates and features for many years to come, and the module can easily be accessed for exchange and reconnection to the main board as a service solution. In case connectivity and streaming technology should become outdated over time, the module can be replaced with the latest version. This means that the speaker can be future proofed by updating to the latest technology standards to deliver decades of great sound experiences.     Bang & Olufsen will continue to produce the easily exchangeable front covers in new materials and colourways so that the speaker can evolve with your personal style and identity, whilst also delivering an element of luxury to any interior. Adding to the resource efficient profile of Beosound Level, the body of the speaker is created from a high- performance recirculated polymer material.

LOUIS VUITTON PRESENTS ACCESSORIES FOR SPRING & SUMMER 2021

Accessories New territories are explored as Louis Vuitton embraces ever more fluid and shifting identities. Old codes and icons are reinvented. Following on the heels of the Spring-Summer 2021 fashion show, the Louis Vuitton accessories collection introduces bold and versatile new signatures that bring together the House’s various crafts in a harmonious blend.     With an up-to-the-minute chunky square or cat-eye shape, three new pairs of sunglasses offer this season’s take on the constantly shape-shifting Louis Vuitton design codes. The temples on the cat-eye model are formed from chain links inspired by leathercraft. The other two pairs toy with variations of the LV signature to make a feisty statement, either through Monogram acetate frames or with metallic hinges showcasing the LV Circle.     A strong presence in the Spring-Summer 2021 fashion show, the chain made of large links engraved with the Monogram flower now makes its way onto fashion jewellery. Worn as a bracelet, necklace or earrings, it comes in gilt, silvered, or diamanté-set brass.     The collection also plays with zips, here brought into motion through necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. For effortless chic it can be paired with the Monogram leather cuff, complete with 80s subculture influences, or even with silk.     There are a variety of ways to accessorise Louis Vuitton’s silk squares.  Loosely tied around the neck, cinched around the waist as a belt, or bandana-style, silk squares as well as the new LV ENVY scarf offer a versatile look.   New territories are explored as Louis Vuitton embraces ever more fluid and shifting identities.

Following on the heels of the Spring-Summer 2021 fashion show, the Louis Vuitton accessories collection introduces bold and versatile new signatures that bring together the House’s various crafts in a harmonious blend.     With an up-to-the-minute chunky square or cat-eye shape, three new pairs of sunglasses offer this season’s take on the constantly shape-shifting Louis Vuitton design codes. The temples on the cat-eye model are formed from chain links inspired by leathercraft. The other two pairs toy with variations of the LV signature to make a feisty statement, either through Monogram acetate frames or with metallic hinges showcasing the LV Circle.     A strong presence in the Spring-Summer 2021 fashion show, the chain made of large links engraved with the Monogram flower now makes its way onto fashion jewellery. Worn as a bracelet, necklace or earrings, it comes in gilt, silvered, or diamanté-set brass.     The collection also plays with zips, here brought into motion through necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.

 Scotch & Soda presents the Summer collection

Scotch & Soda presents the Summer collection

Fashion   A free-spirited mood defines the Scotch & Soda Summer 2021 collection, inspired by Simone Melchior, the 1950s sea explorer who challenged expectations of her gender and time to become the world’s first female scuba diver and a pioneer of marine conservation.     Drawing on her colourful life, the collection heroes an individual and personal approach to dressing built on an eclectic blend of colours, prints and classics.     Statement marine prints that celebrate Melchior’s love for the oceans and sea life abound. Starfish patterns glow in neon shades; graphic anemones pop in bright pinks and greens; metallic tiger shells playfully skew animal prints; while a rustic hand-sketched scene of farmhouses and florals nods to Melchior’s South of France upbringing.     A play on volume is explored in a multiplicity of silhouettes. Sometimes, it’s structured, like the puffed sleeves of a maxi dress; or loose and fluid in the wide leg of cargo trousers. Other times, it’s an unexpected mix of both, such as the fit-and-flow pleated skirt. Cropped shapes, high waists and full A-lines further experiment with proportions in designs that convey a sense of freedom.     An individual and personal approach to dressing playfully subverts the traditional codes of menswear. Summer tailoring is recast in pastels mirroring the colours of the sea with unexpected strength and softness. Highlights for men include a single-breasted blazer and trousers in foam green, and a shorts suit in bright wave blue. Pastels are also contrasted against clean essentials like a pink polo top in textured organic cotton towelling, a vivid dip-dyed ribbed knit, and Bermuda shorts in both surfer and tailored cuts.     The idea of seasonless dressing is key, anchored in modern classics influenced by the utilitarian practicality of marinière uniforms. Trench coats come oversized for layering in spring and ease in summer; likewise, the blazers in longer lengths. Knitted organic cotton- blend vests can be worn over dresses or as standalones, and easy pleated trousers, any time. They’re delivered in a joyful palette which takes on the hues of the Provençal countryside and sea: muted tones of sienna, sand, ecru and French blue, with bursts of orchid pink, marigold, salmon and foam green. Enriched with irreverent details, these epitomise the reinterpreted essentials that form the heart of every Scotch&Soda collection.   A free-spirited mood defines the Scotch & Soda Summer 2021 collection, inspired by Simone Melchior, the 1950s sea explorer who challenged expectations of her gender and time to become the world’s first female scuba diver and a pioneer of marine conservation.     Drawing on her colourful life, the collection heroes an individual and personal approach to dressing built on an eclectic blend of colours, prints and classics.     Statement marine prints that celebrate Melchior’s love for the oceans and sea life abound.
