MARY KATRANTZOU & BVLGARI COLLABORATE ON AN EXCLUSIVE CAPSULE EDITION FRAGRANCE

Fragrances The bold creative vision of the Roman Jeweller and the unlimited imagination of London-based Greek fashion designer Mary Katrantzou collide in an exciting collaboration ranging from Leather Goods and Textiles to the realm of Perfumery.      Writing a new chapter of the famed “Serpenti Through the Eyes of” saga and introducing the Omnia Capsule Edition by Mary Katrantzou, she infuses her poetic and jubilant style into some of Bvlgari’s most emblematic lines.      A momentous creative encounter exuding with the unbridled exuberance of the Roman Maison and Mary Katrantzou’s uplifting and joyful approach to design.         #OmniaByMaryKatrantzou     Fashion designer Mary Katrantzou reimagines the Bvlgari Omnia universe as an optimistic and colorful dreamworld, collaborating with Master Perfumer Alberto Morillas on a new fragrance and bringing joy to the entire Omnia Collection.       MARY KATRANTZOU CREATES A CAPSULE EDITION FOR OMNIA     The Greek-born, London-based fashion designer Mary Katrantzou is recognized as the “queen of prints” for her exuberant and maximalist creations. Poetic and jubilant, she crafts joy with her visual narrative, bold hues and couture techniques.   Spreading positivity through her creations, her style is the perfect match for Bvlgari’s audacity and the brilliant colors of the Omnia universe.   Inspired by the joyful spirit, vibrant allure and unbridled exuberance of Omnia, fashion designer Mary Katrantzou created an exclusive new fragrance in collaboration with Master Perfumer Alberto Morillas. In this way, Omnia by Mary Katrantzou represents a dialogue between two worlds, one that is the product of shared synergy between the two creators whose bold visions align beautifully with each other and with Bvlgari’s unapologetically vibrant aesthetic.        OMNIA BY MARY KATRANTZOU FLORAL EAU DE PARFUM:  A COLORFUL BOUQUET OF JOY AND OPTIMISM     Captivated by the uplifting energy of nature’s most wondrous flowers, Mary Katrantzou created a world of reassuring and touchable joy.   Reminiscent of Mary Katrantzou’s childhood memories and conjuring Italy’s love affair with spectacular florals, Omnia by Mary Katrantzou is “a beautiful universe that awakens our olfactory and visual senses.”    That was what the designer had in mind as she embarked on the creative process of designing her first fragrance. She envisioned the olfactive emotion as its own universe of colours and flowers. In her imagination, the bottle became a sculptural vase, spilling over with a maximalist flower bouquet that encompasses every gorgeously crafted olfactive note from Master Perfumer Alberto Morillas.    The new fragrance is a caress to the soul and an infusion of optimism in everyday life, exploding with the brightness of Mandarin and accords of Gardenia and Fig Leaf. It is a celebration of life’s purest pleasures: an explosive flower bouquet, the smell of an unforgettable bloom, the joy of colors.   Omnia by Mary Katrantzou is experienced one step at a time: a journey that begins with the moment one encounters the packaging, continues when one holds the bottle in her hands, and culminates when scent meets skin and immerses its wearer in a full-color flash of florals.

GIVENCHY PRESENTS THE NEW SIGNATURE 4G BAG

GIVENCHY PRESENTS THE NEW SIGNATURE 4G BAG

Accessories Givenchy presents its new essential handbag by Creative Director Matthew M. Williams: the 4G.     With its architectural lines and a distinctive attitude, the 4G immediately caught attention when it debuted in the Pre-Fall 2021 collection. A fresh take on an already-iconic emblem, it preserves the perfect symmetry prized by Hubert de Givenchy while reflecting the cosmopolitan air and clean, crisp aesthetics Matthew M. Williams has established for the House. It is both modern and timeless, the ideal signature for any silhouette, by day or by night.     At first glance, the 4G stands out for its pure leatherworking savoir-faire. To achieve a sleek, graphic update on the classic rectangular handbag, Matthew M. Williams worked closely with Givenchy’sexpert craftsmen to select the finest, full-grain box calfskins. Reflecting his love of industrial hardware, clasps are meticulously worked using a highly technical process and a precise alchemy of noble metals: even the crisp sound of its magnetic fastening sets the 4G apart, while nodding to the utilitarian yet luxurious 4G padlocks in the Creative Director’s debut Spring-Summer 2021 collection for Givenchy.     Both 4G styles - a flap bag and a chain bag - blend uncompromising luxury with perfect versatility, moving seamlessly from clutch to shoulder or crossbody styles of wear. The 4G flap bag comes with an elegant, removable strap that may be adjusted thanks to discreet metal brackets. The 4G chain bag features the House’s new, custom-made G-link chain in glamorous silver- or gold-finished metal, which glides through metal hoops to adapt as desired.     The interior of each 4G bag is as beautiful as it is functional. The small 4G flap bag features a main compartment for the essentials, with a flat pocket for storing important cards. Inside the medium 4G flap bag are two flat pockets and one card pocket for ease of use.   The 4G chain bags open to reveal a compartment with six card slots and one flat pocket for the small version, or a roomy interior with a single flat pocket for the medium version. A stylish and practical shoulder piece in leather keeps it anchored in place.   The 4G is available in an array of colors, from neutral black, ivory, or cappuccino beige to seasonal shades of avocado green, baby pink, red and dark khaki. Special finishes include an all-over 4G monogram achieved through high-frequency debossing on leather for a three-dimensional effect (in ivory, pink or black). Patent leather versions, in black or sky blue, have a crinkled finish. A 4G in snake- printed lambskin creates a highly realistic impression of exotic leather; a version in dark emerald green python with gold hardware is also available.     The Givenchy 4G handbag by Matthew M. Williams will debut in-store on May 1st, 2021.     Prices: 4G flap crossbody from 1,290€ (small) to 1,490€ (medium); 4G chain bag from 1,390€ (small) to 1,690€ (medium); exotic 4G in python, 3,190€.   https://www.givenchy.com/nl/en/homepage     Givenchy presents its new essential handbag by Creative Director Matthew M.

From the first steps within the fast-moving world of fashion until the moment Philibert, as the founder and creative director, is standing at a unique crossroads for himself and the company.     Filmed over the course of one year, the documentary is made in collaboration with Vice and directed by Joey Boink. It features critical figures behind the brand, such as Philibert’s friends and family, and prominent figures in the international fashion industry such as Daily Paper’s Hussein Suleiman, Pyer Moss’s Kerby Jean-Raymond and Highsnobiety’s David Fischer.      Next to the release of their documentary, Filling Pieces will also be opening their new flagship store in the centre of Amsterdam in July. With 300 square meters, this is their biggest store to date. The flagship store will not only exhibit and sell their collections but will also be a place of gathering for community creatives and entrepreneurs, where themes such as inclusivity, mental health, music, sport, and art will be discussed during exclusive panels and workshops.     Bridging The Gap: 10 Years of Filling Pieces will premiere online on the Filling Pieces website on the 30th of April at 21:00 CEST.

SAINT LAURENT PRESENTS THE WINTER 2021 COLLECTION

Fashion Standing against the hostile nature ground, Anthony Vaccarello’s Winter 21 collection shakes up Saint Laurent’s bourgeois codes. Hanging in the balance between right and wrong, the ephemeral takes over. Colors clash against the black scene, exactly where the clothes were imagined. Unshapely metal bodies come together with sixties tweed suits and fur hems, claiming their effortless nature. Glitzy imperfections taken from the classic wardrobe of nineties cult-musician Peaches, blur the line between cheesy and luxurious.     Sharp metallic jersey bodysuits echo the gleaming cascades of fantasy jewelry, disguised as precious. The irrepressible lightness of the collection mocks its serious ambitions, reversing preconceptions. The unnecessary is a featured performer, becoming necessary to revive the past.     “Serious matters push you to take other things less seriously, finding the balance while staying on the edge is a sophisticated aptitude.” Anthony Vaccarello     Credits : Video @ncanguilhem Soundtrack @sebastian_edbgr “ Sarajevo”(Richter) © Beepop Music represented by Concord Music Publishing France Taken from the Max Richter album “Memoryhouse” (P) 2002 BBC #YSL #SaintLaurent #YvesSaintLaurent #NathalieCanguilhem @anthonyvaccarello Standing against the hostile nature ground, Anthony Vaccarello’s Winter 21 collection shakes up Saint Laurent’s bourgeois codes.

Levi’s® 517 FOR VALENTINO IS NOW OUT

Fashion For the Valentino Collezione Milano Show, Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli reframes the classic Levi’s® 1969 - 517 boot cut jeans, the iconic Levi’s® style, born in a time of ultimate self- expression, made popular in the late 1960’s.     The Levi’s® brand is built on its values and Valentino’s show embodies the importance of equality, sharing the revitalization of a timeless and inclusive aesthetic experience that becomes more significant than ever. Resignification is a conceptual operation that Valentino’s Creative Director has been reflecting on for a long time. It consists in giving new value to symbols, ideas, places, atmospheres that come from different moments in time, but are still relevant for the contemporary scenario.     The collaboration features the LEVI’S® VINTAGE 517 (1969) and the LEVI’S® RE-EDITION 517, a special tag has been designed to celebrate the beginning of a new fashion exploration.     Starting from April 28: The LEVI’S® VINTAGE 517 (1969) available in selected Valentino boutiques, Valentino.com and NET-A-PORTER and MR. PORTER exclusive partners. These are real untouched originals vintage pieces dated back from the 70’s on, available in very limited quantities - only 517 units around the world. This style is characterized by one-of-a-kind peculiarities as seen on Valentino Collezione Milano runway.     The LEVI’S® RE-EDITION 517 available in worldwide Valentino boutiques, Valentino.com and selected retailers. These denims are a re-elaboration of the original style, exclusively produced by Levi’s® in occasion of the collaboration with Maison Valentino.     By remaining faithful to the 517 renowned style, Pierpaolo Piccioli conceives with new eyes a style that is familiar to all: Levi’s® boot cut jeans are juxtaposed to iconic elements of the Maison as rouches and lace, co-existing harmoniously, creating a new concept of romanticism for men and women.

Zalando brings the fashion industry and consumers together to close the gap between attitudes and behaviors around sustainable fashion

Sustainability Zalando publishes report with insights and recommendations to bridge the gap between what consumers say they want to do in terms of sustainability and what they actually do when buying fashion. To make it easier to make sustainable choices, Zalando is launching a new shopping experience that allows customers to search for what is important to them Zalando continues to invest in Pre-owned and also makes the offer available in Austria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy and Sweden.     Zalando, Europe's leading online fashion and lifestyle platform, today publishes the report, "It Takes Two: How the Industry and Consumers Can Close the Sustainability Attitude-Behavior Gap in Fashion." The report examines the difference between what people say they want to do and what they actually do. It shows that many customers find it difficult to apply their personal sustainability values ​​when buying clothes. The report contains clear recommendations on how to solve this problem by working together. In response to the findings and recommendations, Zalando is launching a new shopping experience that allows customers to browse the more sustainable range in a way that reflects the values ​​they pursue. In addition, Zalando continues to invest in Pre-owned and gives customers in seven new markets the opportunity to buy and trade in second-hand fashion themselves, after it has already been successfully launched in Belgium and the Netherlands, among others.     Based on consumer research conducted in five European countries *, the report states that the fashion industry must make sustainable choices more attractive, realistic and accessible. At the same time, consumers should give more priority to sustainability in their fashion choices, just as they do in other areas of their lives.     David Schneider, Co-CEO at Zalando, says: “We aim to have 25% of our gross trade volume (GMV) in more sustainable products by 2023. During the corona crisis, customers let us know that sustainable shopping has become more important than ever to them. However, when we asked them what they thought of sustainable fashion, the association “guilty” came to the fore. The feeling that came up the least was “fun”. If the fashion industry takes sustainability seriously, we need to resolve this dissonance around sustainability now to build a stronger future for fashion. ”     The “It Takes Two” report lists ten recommendations that can help fashion companies close the gap between attitude and behavior. The report identifies three priorities that need to be addressed quickly. First of all, the fashion industry must gain confidence with simple and convincing communication. Second, behavior change must be promoted. Finally, attention must be paid to circularity with solutions to close the chain.     Kate Heiny, Director Sustainability at Zalando, explains: “Our customers say that sustainability is very important to them, but they find it difficult to put these values ​​into action when they go shopping or online shopping. As a platform, our job is to empower ourselves, our brands and our customers to make more sustainable choices, inspire them to take joint action and drive lasting change. That's why we prepared this report, from which we can all learn: Zalando, the fashion industry and consumers. This report concluded that if we really want to close the gap between attitude and behavior that has existed in fashion for a long time, collaboration is the only solution. We will have to do it together; the fashion industry and our consumers. ”     Zalando wants to lead by example and has already implemented one of the report's recommendations: "Speak about sustainability in a way that everyone can understand." The recommendation is based on the finding that one in two customers does not understand what sustainability means in the context of fashion. Thanks to a new feature in the Zalando shop, customers can now browse the range based on the values ​​they consider important, such as water conservation, employee well-being, reuse of materials, animal welfare, limiting CO2 emissions and extending lifespan of fashion items. In 2018, Zalando already started labeling products with a "sustainability flag", such as items made with more sustainable materials or production methods. Today, this sustainable range already includes more than 80,000 items from more than 500 brands. With the launch of this new shopping experience, Zalando is taking it a step further in its drive to give consumers a better understanding of sustainable fashion, enabling them to make more informed choices.     This is a subject that is very important to us and we are happy to be sharing this with our readers.     Read more about it on their website: https://corporate.zalando.com/en/attitude-behavior-gap-report#foreword Zalando publishes report with insights and recommendations to bridge the gap between what consumers say they want to do in terms of sustainability and what they actually do when buying fashion. To make it easier to make sustainable choices, Zalando is launching a new shopping experience that allows customers to search for what is important to them Zalando continues to invest in Pre-owned and also makes the offer available in Austria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy and Sweden.     Zalando, Europe's leading online fashion and lifestyle platform, today publishes the report, "It Takes Two: How the Industry and Consumers Can Close the Sustainability Attitude-Behavior Gap in Fashion."
