TOMMY HILFIGER KICKS OFF TOMMY’S DROP SHOP WITH FIRST LIMITED-EDITION RELEASE FEATURING THREE EXCLUSIVE CO-CREATORS

Fashion Tommy Hilfiger, announces the first Tommy’s Drop Shop release, featuring three micro-capsules co-designed by three uniquely avant-garde collaborators: Jonny Banger (@sportsbanger), Mago Dovjenko (@iammago) and Toby Evans (@zome.work). With the excitement and instant gratification of this limited-edition format – only 500 units will be available in each style – Tommy’s Drop Shop aims to encourage the continual discovery of creatives, their communities and artistic talents.       Tommy’s Drop Shop is Tommy Hilfiger’s newest platform for creators from all areas of the pop culture community to collaborate on lightning-quick, limited-edition releases. Each DROP will offer gender-neutral hoodies and T-shirts available in a maximum quantity of 500 units per style and made from 100% organic cotton or recycled cotton, building on the brand’s mission to create fashion that Wastes Nothing and Welcomes All. Creative collaboration has always been at the heart of Tommy Hilfiger, and over the last five years, the brand has fused this with a “See Now, Buy Now” mentality. Tommy’s Drop Shop combines the best of these approaches with a new level of speed and energy. The release will be available in all European markets exclusively on tommy.com from December 17, 2020.     “Pop culture has infused everything we’ve done for over 35 years,” said Tommy Hilfiger.  “Tommy’s Drop Shop takes this influence to new heights. The platform allows us to collaborate with even more creatives, tell even more inspiring stories and celebrate even more perspectives and walks of life. It is the embodiment of what we love to do, and I’m so excited to add it to our legacy.”     DROP 1.1 highlights Sports Banger, the independent, British lifestyle brand redefining bootlegging in the modern age. Founded in 2013 by Jonny Banger, the unisex sportswear line explores British culture and translates it into provocative products and experiences. Sports Banger fosters creative collaboration with an always-expanding collective of designers, performers, musicians and DJs. In his Tommy’s Drop Shop designs, Banger flips the TOMMY JEANS flag on its head; channels an old rave flyer; and reinterprets an iconic TOMMY HILFIGERpair of blue and red gloves worn by R&B musician, Aaliyah.      DROP 1.2 is designed by Berlin-based Mago Dovjenko, a creative director, graphic designer, illustrator, digital influencer and event host. Dovjenko began his career producing surrealist drawings, which were first recognized and esteemed by global brands when he was only 14 years old. Dovjenko still holds the record as the youngest artist to ever collaborate with top global, household-name brands. Today, he continues to partner with major brands in his role as Creative Director and Illustrator. In his Tommy’s Drop Shop pieces, Dovjenko celebrated spontaneous self-expression by ‘freestyling’ in his design process and deconstructing the iconic TOMMY HILFGIER flag. His T-shirt and hoodie feature psychedelic and graffiti-style art, including a lava lamp-inspired, oversized smiling heart.     DROP 1.3 styles, designed by London-based Toby Evans, founder of Studio Zome, are inspired by the creative director’s concept-driven work, which spans design, brand identity and creative direction, championing honest communication, confidence and conviction. By encapsulating energy, experimentation and attitude, Evans continues to progress visual culture by exploring the zeitgeist of today while envisioning what is to come tomorrow. Known for his distinctive approach to design, Evans has worked with a range of industry-defying brands, platforms and artists. In his Tommy’s Drop Shop designs, Evans boldly reinterprets TOMMY HILFIGER’s iconic aesthetic and brand codes. His T-shirt and hoodie tell a story of what paths Mr. Tommy Hilfiger may have pursued in a parallel universe, had he not become a fashion designer.     Through Tommy’s Drop Shop, young, upcoming talent will share their passion for specific pockets of creativity. The second Tommy’s Drop Shop micro-capsule will launch in February 2021.      Friends and followers of the brand can join the conversation on social media using #TommyHilfiger, @TommyHilfiger and #TommyHilfiger.

Samsøe Samsøe for Spring & Summer 2021

Fashion Their Spring/Summer 2021 collection takes inspiration from the global-yet-local subcultural diversity of the people around us.     The past year has had an immense stamp on world history, and we realised we needed to go back in time, dig deeper, and analyse ourselves and our actions as well. With words such as glocal, diversity, inclusion and camaraderie being a part of our moodboards and ethics for the past few seasons, it really became the ignition for pushing this collection to what it actually has become: a story of local love.     A collective, honest understanding in-house at Samsøe Samsøe is that Nørrebro, where we’ve had our base for over 20 years, is a huge part of our heritage; and today, we as a whole get inspired by the multicultural aspect this borough brings. The sense of community and solidarity might be the strongest here in all of Copenhagen - ensuring that we as a brand always take every- thing mentioned above into consideration for the future of Samsøe Samsøe.     Folkloric traditions and cross-cultural references are portrayed through soft, geometric prints, taking inspiration from around the world. Light, airy fabrics and the casually oversized silhou- ette tells the story of a new era for the brand,bringing a luxe approach in re ned voluminousshapes. Playing around with tactility and soft tailoring speaks volumes in the shapes of our outerwear, adding an element of the Nordics into the collection; whilst pyjama stripes andoral traces have you longing for summer in anew way.     With a palette of earthy tones, moody blues, grassy greens, washed out purples and rich reds,this collection embraces all forms and gures,and tells the story of worldhood; a term we’ve delved into, especially for this collection.     We gone back to our roots, telling the story of the global-yet-local presence that Nørrebro possesses. This makes us, as a global brand, a bit more local, real and raw. Being in the now. Just how we like it.

Max Mara presents the Pre-Fall 2021collection

Fashion Elizabeth ‘Lee’ Miller; her talent defied categorization; her intelligence, creativity, beauty, drive and determination ensured her place at the fulcrum of events throughout her remarkable life. A pioneering artist, photographer and journalist, a model and muse, who inspired the likes of Man Ray, Max Ernst, Magritte, Cocteau, and Picasso.     Miller’s life was one of stark contrasts and every phase was captured in the modern medium of photography. Those grainy black and white images prompt Max Mara to take a fresh look at the colour grey. Pictures of Miller in military uniform inspire the collection’s central theme, ‘combat tailoring’. For a woman on a mission, Max Mara’s new take on the sartorial features sharp suiting, smart grisaglia and prince-de-galles with utilitarian bellows pockets. Big and boxy jackets are paired with cargo pants and skirts that hover above the knee.     Miller’s life as a fashion model began on a Manhattan street when she accidentally stepped in front of a car whose driver just turned out to the magazine publisher Condé Nast. Pictures by Edward Steichen and George Hoyningen-Huene portray her at the height of fashion, the epitome of ‘the modern girl’. These are Max Mara’s inspiration for a series of pieces in organza and silk gazaar with outsize bows and dramatically gathered sleeves.     Spots were Miller’s pattern of choice. In grey and white, and tone on tone, Max Mara features them on a scale that spans big to bigger to biggest.     Miller has long held a place in Max Mara’s pantheon of greats. On the moodboard, a 1999 campaign shot by Steven Meisel shows Carolyn Murphy with a distinctly Miller-esque vibe. Cool, confident and glamorous, she wears a white suit that ties at the side. An updated version of that suit appears in the line up with the iconic 101801 draped over the shoulders.     The artist Jessie Mann recently called out for more women role models of Miller’s ilk, ‘women who are complicated and fully three-dimensional’, in her words. Max Mara pays tribute to those women with a collection that equips them to take on the world. Elizabeth ‘Lee’ Miller; her talent defied categorization; her intelligence, creativity, beauty, drive and determination ensured her place at the fulcrum of events throughout her remarkable life. A pioneering artist, photographer and journalist, a model and muse, who inspired the likes of Man Ray, Max Ernst, Magritte, Cocteau, and Picasso.     Miller’s life was one of stark contrasts and every phase was captured in the modern medium of photography. Those grainy black and white images prompt Max Mara to take a fresh look at the colour grey. Pictures of Miller in military uniform inspire the collection’s central theme, ‘combat tailoring’. For a woman on a mission, Max Mara’s new take on the sartorial features sharp suiting, smart grisaglia and prince-de-galles with utilitarian bellows pockets. Big and boxy jackets are paired with cargo pants and skirts that hover above the knee.     Miller’s life as a fashion model began on a Manhattan street when she accidentally stepped in front of a car whose driver just turned out to the magazine publisher Condé Nast. Pictures by Edward Steichen and George Hoyningen-Huene portray her at the height of fashion, the epitome of ‘the modern girl’. These are Max Mara’s inspiration for a series of pieces in organza and silk gazaar with outsize bows and dramatically gathered sleeves.     Spots were Miller’s pattern of choice. In grey and white, and tone on tone, Max Mara features them on a scale that spans big to bigger to biggest.     Miller has long held a place in Max Mara’s pantheon of greats.

Arceau Grande Lune

Arceau Grande Lune

Watches The new Arceau Grande Lune featuring a deep blue dial with a sunburst motif highlights the creativity of a timeless model. In 1978, Henri d’Origny freed the round watch from established aesthetic codes by imagining a classic and singular curve: the Arceau watch was born. Its case with asymmetrical stirrup-shaped attachments and sloping Arabic numerals evoking a galloping horse reveal a discreet and enduring elegance that lends itself to every possible expression of Hermès creativity and know-how.     The sunburst blue face of the new Arceau Grande Lune is paired with a matching Abyss blue alligator strap, an intense colour accentuated by the casual elegance of the steel case and sapphire caseback.     Swept over by slender hands and enlivened by sloping numerals creating an in-motion effect, this dynamic-looking display is complemented by a moon phase and date counter adorned with a starry sky, as well as a double day and month window appearing beneath the Hermès logo. Hours, minutes, seconds and complete calendar indications are displayed to the rhythm of a mechanical self-winding movement housed in a case crafted in the Hermès watchmaking workshops, as are the dial and strap.

Daily Paper and Off-WhiteTM Collaborate With Collective Surf Ghana to Build Ghana's Very First Skatepark

Fashion Powerhouses Daily Paper and Off-WhiteTM join forces with social collective Surf Ghana and spatial design studio Limbo Accra to create Freedom Skate Park, Ghana's very first fully functional skate park in the heart of Accra. As part of their Beyond The Return pop-up in Ghana, Daily Paper is releasing a capsule collection with Surf Ghana and an exclusive collaborative tee with Off-WhiteTM that will be available for sale with 100% of the proceeds going to the construction of the skatepark. One of only 10 skateparks in all of Africa, Freedom Skate Park plans to begin construction in the first quarter of 2021 and open later that year - ushering in a new day in African sport and creative life.     A Collaboration Between Global Diasporic Visionaries:   The Daily Paper x Surf Ghana capsule collection and the exclusive Daily Paper x Off-WhiteTM tee will make its debut at Daily Paper's pop-up store in Accra, Ghana on December 21, 2020 with a global release to follow on dailypaperclothing.com on January 15, 2021. The collaboration will kick off with Daily Paper going into conversation with Surf Ghana's founder Sandy Alibo, co-director Joshua Odamtten and Limbo Accra's founderDominique Petit Frère, co-hosted by Stories of Young- founder Ashlee Janelle through a paneltalk in Daily Paper's pop-up at Mhoseeno Studios in Accra.      "With this initiative we hope to evolve the skate culture in Ghana to the next level and give locals a platform to grow their talents within a space that will hopefully become their biggest training ground to date. More than board sports, the park will be a creative hub for young Ghanaians to come together, exchange ideas, inspire each other and build their futures through recreational activities. They now have a place where they can be themselves, freely develop their skills together with likeminded people and reach their true potential. Hence the name Freedom Skate Park." - Jefferson Osei, Co-Founder of Daily Paper     Contributions from Virgil Abloh's Design Firm Alaska Alaska and Vans:   Virgil Abloh's design firm Alaska Alaska created the Freedom Skatepark logo and will contribute to the design of some spatial elements of the skate park.   The original action sports brand Vans is also honored to contribute to the future skateboarding program of the skatepark seeking to grow participation of skateboarding in Africa. The icon of creative expression will support the initiative to inspire the culture and values of skateboarding onto the global stage.     A New Sport Ecosystem:   The initiative of a skatepark has been nurtured by Surf Ghana since its start in 2016. It's core mission has been to offer easy access to board sports for youth across Ghana, but because of the sport's relatively recent popularity in the country, Ghana has not had the infrastructure necessary for a functioning skate community to fully thrive - now it finally will. Presently, the ever-growing community of active skateboarders has created an ecosystem that supports well-being, creativity, and entrepreneurship that is all 100% Made in Ghana.     The multifaceted space will also function as a training ground for Ghana's possible inclusion in the skateboarding category of the 2021 Olympic Games. Finally, the park will solidify the growth of board sports in Ghana and help the youth participate in creative activities that build confidence, self-esteem, and provide a valuable platform for self-expression.     Beyond the Return Pop-Up:   With the overwhelming success of the 2019 pop-up store, Daily Paper will return to the capital of Ghana in December 2020 - hosting a celebration of the Beyond the Return initiative with a 2 week pop-up and creative space for their community. A continuation from last year's activities, Daily Paper will host a full house of local talent, students, creatives and tourists, through panel talks and events next to seeing a return of the football tournament from last year on the pitch built with Puma back in 2017. Another highlight is the premiering of a limited edition Daily Paper and Off-WhiteTM designed Tony's Chocolonely chocolate bar that will be gifted in the pop-up for the first visitors.

THE VERSACE PRE-FALL 2021 COLLECTION

Fashion Pre-Fall 2021 is all about Versace essentials for the men and women of today. Inspired by modern muses, Donatella Versace has created designs that celebrate personality and individual identity, presenting the new must-have pieces for a world that has evolved and changed.     The womenswear collection focuses on cuts, new silhouettes and unexpected matchings of fabrics and colors.     Sleek black leather, a material that has always been integral to the brand, comes in the form of tailored blazers, A-line skirts and dresses. The silhouettes are clean and the color palettes center on block black and caramel with pops of reds, oranges, and electric blues throughout. Sporty sweatshirts are turned into dresses with nipped-in waists. This season’s little black dress, which is made from heavy jersey or leather, goes from day to night and is sometimes embellished with broken-up Versace bijoux. Accessories are bold this season and come in punchy colors as well as black and caramel. We introduce a new hobo-style La Medusa handbag in three sizes and refresh our classic Virtus line with new finishes including ecological faux fur.     The menswear presents the modern uniform for the guy of today. Athletic sportwear, tactile cashmere pieces, flannel-trimmed oxford shirts and utilitarian outerwear. There are clean-cut overcoats in vibrant blue and green. Versace’s version of a camouflage print – Baroccoflage – comes in khaki-brown and navy-electric blue combinations. Suits are sharply tailored but come in new fabrics. Some feature faint Baroccoflage prints and are worn with relaxed sportswear for a clashing effect.     Jersey and sweatshirts have been crafted from eco-sustainable fabrics, and the formalwear is made from over-printed deadstock as part of Versace’s ongoing commitment to become a more sustainable brand.     CREDITS: Photographer: Theo Sion Stylist: Jacob K Models: Kayako Higuchi Grace Hartzel Miriam Sanchez Sculy Mejia Escobosa Evelina Lauren Cheikh Dia David Trulik Hair: Alessandro Squarza Make-up: Miriam Langellotti Casting Director: Piergiorgio Del Moro Pre-Fall 2021 is all about Versace essentials for the men and women of today.
