Louis Vuitton Men’s collection by Virgil Abloh Fall-Winter 2021

Louis Vuitton Men’s collection by Virgil Abloh Fall-Winter 2021

Fashion Week “Within my practice, I contribute to a Black canon of culture and art and its preservation. This is why, to preserve my own output, I record it at length.” –Virgil Abloh, A manifesto according to Virgil Abloh, 2020.     What do you want to be when you grow up? As children, our dreamsand aspirations are personi ed by archetypes: the Artist, theSalesman, the Architect, the Drifter. Familiar characters in ev-eryday society, they are inseparably de ned by their uniforms:the dress codes we associate with professions, lifestyles and knowledge. From head to toe, our minds are inherently trained to outline an archetypical wardrobe to help us identify the character of an individual. Often, these characters are tied to societal presumptions of cultural background, gender, and sexuality.     The Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter 2021 Men’s Collection investigates the unconscious biases instilled in our collective psyche by the archaic norms of society. Predetermined perceptions, they imbue our outlooks with manmade myths connected to the genetics of peo- ple, ideas and art. Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh employsfashion as a tool to change those preconceptions: keep the codes,but change the values.     The logic respects Black cultural traditions that use gures of speech (irony, punning, ri ing) to play with or reverse the conno- tations of established codes. These techniques create new meanings and subvert established canons; for example, the way a standardEnglish phrase may have an entirely di erent meaning in Blackvernacular English. Virgil Abloh applies these techniques to his design methodology, imbuing the grammar of recognised archetypeswith di erent genetics.     Informed by James Baldwin’s essay Stranger in the Village from 1953, which deals with the parallels between the author’s experi- ences as an African-American man in a Swiss village and his life in America, the show takes place between locations in Switzerlandand Paris. The frames of the performance revolve around the gu-rative notion of the art heist: the myths spun by society aroundorigin and ownership of art, visual references and those who cre-ate. (See: ‘The Performance Art Piece’.)     The conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner constructs a series of aph-orisms-as-patterns tied to these premises: “YOU CAN TELL A BOOK BYITS COVER”, “THE SAME PLACE AT THE SAME TIME”, “( SOMEWHERE SOME-HOW )”. Throughout garments and accessories, motifs and techniques play on themes of illusion, replicating the familiar through the deceptive lenses of trompe l’oeil and ltrage, and re-appropriat- ing the normal through extreme elevation. It fuels a study of the un-designed: items devoid of artisticownership and exact historical provenance. The physical show in-vitation is embodied by a balsa wood DIY model plane, an eternalsymbol of boyhood devoid of artistic ownership. Who came up with the paper cup? The metal nail? The pencil? It begs the questionof who can claim creation: who gets to make art, and who gets toconsume it. Conceived outside the art sphere, un-designed and es- sentially “normal” items represent a public domain continuously reinvented and claimed by the sector of art.     As a result, normality is accentuated: the slumber we slip intofollowing periods of social unrest. What does normality look like, what does it mean, and who has the optional privilege to embody it? Virgil Abloh brings his established idea of “Tourist vs. Pur-ist” to the forefront: his term for the outsider, who aspirestowards an esoteric domain of knowledge versus the insider, who already occupies it. The collection detects their respective codes in order to defy and unite them.     In a social climate hankering for a new normal that breaks with the archaic structure of society, archetypes become neotypes. Ifan artist doesn’t ful l our predetermined image of an artist, doesit make them any less of an artist? If a reference that originated in the sphere of the Tourist is altered into a new piece of art,can the Purist claim ownership of that reference? If Kente cloth– the fabric of Virgil Abloh’s cultural heritage – is rendered intartan, does that make Kente any less Ghanaian and tartan any less Scottish? Provenance is reality, while ownership is myth: manmadeinventions now ripe for re-invention. “Within my practice, I contribute to a Black canon of culture and art and its preservation.

Daily Paper Presents Spring/Summer 2021 Collection: Future Roots

Fashion Daily Paper presents their Spring/Summer 2021 collection Future Roots as they release their second drop of Spring ready silhouettes and colorways. This season Daily Paper explores ancient wisdom and traditions of pre-colonial civilisations alongside the creativity and innovation of post-colonial activist movements. Looking at the past with reverence and humility; to the present with critical wit; and to the future with an empowered optimism, Daily Paper hopes to inspire and educate the current generation to realise their potential to create diverse new identities for tomorrow.     Custom Branded Lace:   The foundation of the collection is the revival of histories and the memories of the past through a modern lens which is particularly well demonstrated in the choice of fabrics for this season. Extensive research into the origin stories of various African textiles is reinterpreted through satin scarf attachments, tailored staples, dart-waisted dresses and voluminous shirting that is cut from a custom branded white cotton broderie anglaise. The lace is embroidered with empty portrait frames, acknowledging the heroes of the past for your own interpretation that paved the way for the future to come. This season's colors include pastel turquoise, lilac and yellow, soft beige and brown, bright green and different shades of whites for an elevated Spring/Summer wardrobe.       Credits : Photography: David Nana Opoku Ansah  Creative and Art Direction: Florian Joahn  Styling: Edem Dossou Styling Assistant: Mohammed Blakk  Make Up: Elizabeth Boateng  Talents (left to right): Seth Bedzo and  Erza Tamaa     Brown Jacquard and Nostalgic Elements:   A further sense of heritage is conveyed in a newly- introduced monogram print of the Daily Paper shield, which is used on brown satin jacquard two-pieces. Elsewhere, blazers, flared trousers and pleated skirts in school- uniform-inspired checks is a nod to the student style and classrooms of the 60s and 70s where the activist mindsets were developed. With it’s nostalgic elements and historical references, the collection’s message rings clear: our future roots will always draw their power from the past.      Daily Paper presents their Spring/Summer 2021 collection Future Roots as they release their second drop of Spring ready silhouettes and colorways.

REINE DE NAPLES CŒUR ETERNAL LOVE BY BREGUET

Watches With delicacy and subtlety, and as Valentine's Day approaches, Breguet enlivens the face of the Reine de Naples with a new invention: a hand in the shape of a changing heart. Its curves expand or contract, as if by magic and very gently, as it makes its way around the elongated oval dial. Rose gold and diamonds add to the radiance of this sleek creation, with a hint of vermilion. This exclusive Cœur, or Heart edition, limited to 28 numbered pieces and accompanied by a matching clutch as its case, is reserved for a selection of Breguet boutiques.     The first wristwatch ever made, the model no. 2639 was a treasure trove of ingenuity right from its origins in 1810. Breguet was inspired by this innovative watch and by the client, Caroline Murat, Queen of Naples, who commissioned it, for its iconic contemporary collection. Today, for its new creation dedicated to women and to love, the House of Breguet has designed a new system protected by several patents. The magic of an innovative mechanism changes the heart shape of the minute hand – off-center at 6 o’clock – depending on its position on the oval dial. Breguet, which has always developed special watches dedicated to women, is thus faithful to its history and its practice. For this new creation, its curves stretch as the hand moves across the top half of the dial, and become more rounded at the bottom. A real heart that beats... A pared-down dial highlights the delicate elegance and great romanticism of this piece. Touches of vermilion red add to the intensity of the lines of the hours chapter, the leather strap, and the crown, which is adorned with a ruby. This luxurious and exclusive composition is brought to perfection with rose gold and diamonds. This model, reserved for brand boutiques, is presented in an envelope clutch bag finished in grained calfskin leather and dyed vermilion red to match the strap of the Reine de Naples Coeur.     Celebrating Delicacy and Romance:     For the face of this new Reine de Naples, Breguet has opted for understated elegance. The heart-shaped minute hand moves over a sapphire-crystal dial, lacquered in white for a very soft and subtle translucent effect. Its tip, marked by a subtle red heart, indicates the minutes on the hours chapter, punctuated by tiny hearts every five minutes. For better readability, something dear to Breguet, the quarter numerals are distinguished by their size and their outline, lacquered with vermilion. The hour, indicated by a drop of purple lacquer, appears in the center through a window. The rose gold of the dial flange and bezel is set with 128 diamonds. The setting of the folding buckle, also in gold, echoes the brilliance of the case, amounting to a total of approximately 0.94 carats.     The Magic of a Vibrant Heart, an ode to love:     The latest invention of the House of Breguet is a minute hand composed of two independent arms, capable of twisting thanks to an ingenious set of gears to create a heart that is extended at 12 o’clock and more rounded at 6 o’clock. Equipped with an oval-shaped cam – mirroring the curves so characteristic of the Reine de Naples – the mechanism allows each of these arms to move at different speeds. This innovation, created exclusively for the Reine de Naples, is protected by four patents. The gears of this complication, like all the components of the caliber, are all carefully hand-finished in the Breguet tradition – whether visible or invisible to the eye. The sapphire-crystal caseback of the rose gold case reveals the movement of the caliber, the 78A0. On the gold rim, the individual number of the watch is engraved, recorded in the archives of the House of Breguet, which have been maintained since the end of the eighteenth century.     With the Reine de Naples Cœur, Breguet conjures up the magic of love, thanks to an innovative hand that traces a heart of ever-changing shape.
