GUCCI TO PRESENT THE EPILOGUE COLLECTION THROUGH A LIVE STREAMING

Fashion Week Gucci is pleased to announce that Creative Director Alessandro Michele will present his Epilogue collection through a special live streaming and the release of a visual narrative feature.      The event will be broadcast on Friday, July 17, 2020, the last day of the inaugural Milan Digital Fashion Week, on several digital platforms worldwide. The exclusive narrative feature will be shared at 2:00pm CEST during the 12-hour live streaming starting at 8:00am CEST. Tomorrow you can livestream it on our website.     As previously announced, Alessandro Michele wanted to write an Epilogue: a conclusive chapter in the narrative arc that began with his last show “An Unrepeatable Ritual”, when he started celebrating the magic of fashion by unveiling what lies behind the curtains of a beloved liturgy. On July 17th, he is presenting the final act of this path, a further playful experimentation aimed at reversing traditional fashion rules and perspectives.     Casting the team from his design office, the Epilogue will be presented through a unified collection, with the seeds of what will be the near, imminent future.

PRADA presents Multiple views for their Spring & Summer 2021 collection

PRADA presents Multiple views for their Spring & Summer 2021 collection

Fashion Week For Prada Multiple Views SS21, a singular statement is replaced by the perspectives of many: multiple views, by a multitude of global creatives. The collection suggests the approach: different views, for a collection that proposes a myriad interpretations of the Prada man and woman. Congruent yet individually delineated, the collection is proposed in five chapters, which in turn are interpreted by five image-makers and artists. A true conversation.     Terence Nance, Joanna Piotrowska, Martine Syms, Juergen Teller and Willy Vanderperre each propose a film capturing a facet of the Prada collection, distinct and definite in its creative statement and ideology, a point of view on Prada. These inherently and fundamentally echo the traditional fashion show, where each observer has their own physical and ideological vantage-point on the collection, their own opinions, their own observations. It also reflects the reality of this Prada digital presentation: seemingly divergent but again seen by many, this time in their own environments, their own time, their own worlds. This is an embracing and celebration of that multiplicity - when people cannot commune, we can establish a different type of community, united through ideas, goals, beliefs.     Attention is drawn back to clothes - simple clothes, with a use and a value, a longevity and a place within people’s lives. As times become increasingly complex, clothes become straightforward, unostentatious, machines for living and tools for action and activity.     The July 2020 collection focuses on the quintessence of Prada, the meaning. How clothes are worn, where, and why. Often, their meanings are compound and multiplex: simultaneously speaking of sportswear and formality, of classicism and futurism, pieces are paradoxes, situated in multiple worlds - just as their debut here is not only framed by the eye of Prada, but by a panoply of creatives. The silhouette for men is sharp and narrow, fitted, with technologically innovative fabrications of Prada nylon and stretch materials juxtaposed with traditional suiting; for women, the same fabrics are given couture volumes and treatments. Then the reverse: industrial outfits in classic fabrications, leathers, cottons, taffeta, and true sportswear, drawn from Linea Rossa, technically innovative, function dictating form. In simplifying and paring back, a logical conclusion is lingerie: a foundational layer, a vulnerability, a fragility and humanity. Pieces evocative of these clothes in both male and female wardrobes - soft knit, fragile colour, light fabric - are worn as everyday clothing. A coat is clutched over bare skin.     A radicalism is found in purity - simplicity with a complexity, yet an antidote to useless complication in precision and directness. Contradiction is celebrated: in apparent fragility can be found strength, through rigour joy. A sense of lightness not only of physicality but of emotion - the dynamism of sportswear translates throughout, a sense of enjoyment, energy, fun. A reason for fashion. Prada - and fashion - seen with multiple views.     CHAPTER I Willy Vanderperre (b. 1971, Belgium) ‘Prada evolves and changes every season; this season, the part we were shooting and filming felt like an honest collection. Stripped from fashion ideas, which turns that idea into fashion again. It also felt introspective and slightly schizophrenic. A look into the past with the future ahead. I hope that the audience feels that in the movie, a distilled pure and honest presentation of the collection.’     CHAPTER II Juergen Teller (b. 1964, Germany) ‘It was an honour to be asked to photograph and film Miuccia‘s last collection. I thought the men and women looked beautiful, elegant and modern. I enjoyed looking at Miuccia‘s vision and trying to make sense of it as honest and direct as possible.’     CHAPTER III Joanna Piotrowska (b. 1985, Poland) ‘Gesture and physicality are an essential non-verbal form of communication and play a big role in the conceptual and compositional aspects of my work. The finger snap, is a quick and subtle yet attention-demanding action. It is also used to indicate approval or to maintain rhythm. I thought that this short could be an interesting space to work with the snap as a recurring motif that marks the movements and refocuses the viewer’s attention to each new look.’     CHAPTER IV Martine Syms (b. 1988, USA) ‘The video is a collage of multiple formats and features iterative, repetitive movements intercut with beautiful people staring at images of themselves on monitors and screens in Milan and in my studio in Los Angeles. Since the collection pieces have a 60s feeling to them, I tried to include several references to cinema culture and surveillance/sousveillance from that time period to the present. I'm inspired by the way screens have come to make & unmake us, and what it means to be living, breathing, moving fleshy things in a world full of them.’     CHAPTER V Terence Nance (b. 1982, USA) ‘The film that came through was born of speed and play, I have no words through which to decode what the meaning is and was and will be but it may be about ‘time’ - and keeping your organs in that vessel we call a body while it contorts itself to love each second as it goes bye bye.’     #PradaSS21 #PradaMultipleViews For Prada Multiple Views SS21, a singular statement is replaced by the perspectives of many: multiple views, by a multitude of global creatives.

GUCCI LAUNCHES A NEW COLLABORATIVE PROJECT BASED  AROUND THE G-TIMELESS WATCH

GUCCI LAUNCHES A NEW COLLABORATIVE PROJECT BASED AROUND THE G-TIMELESS WATCH

Watches Gucci has pioneered several collaborative projects, sharing its vision in the digital space. Now, House Creative Director Alessandro Michele has invited a number of visual artists from around the world to bring their personal and idiosyncratic perspectives to bear on the G-Timeless automatic watch.      Alessandro Michele asked different visual artists (illustrators, painters and digital artists) to indulge their imaginations and create artworks featuring various models of G-Timeless automatic watches. All were challenged to creatively interpret the watches in their own way, and to focus in particular on the element that makes the G-Timeless so distinctive: the motif of the bee, first introduced to Gucci in the 1970s,which is the key decorative feature on the stone dials of these timepieces, where it functions as every hour-marking index.     The artists truly represent the global community. While some, like Winnie Chi from China and Kieron Livingstone from the UK, have previously collaborated with Gucci, most are new discoveries for the House: like London-based Oh de Laval and Tishk Barzanji, Balfua from California, David Macho from Spain and Andrey Kasay from Russia. Other artists include the USA’s Margot Ferrick and UK’s Cambo, who have already had their artworks for this project previewed on Gucci’s Instagram as a teaser, together with Winnie Chi, who has presented an animation. Although each artist has brought a deeply personal eye to the project, all the pieces share a dreamy, surreal mood, perfectly in keeping with Gucci’s eclecticism.     The Gucci G-Timeless watch features a stone dial decorated with the House’s famous bees, while the transparent case back gives a glimpse of the automatic movement that powers the timepieces.     There are eight Swiss-made variations of the G-Timeless in all, with a 38mm or a 42mm case. Three models combine an 18kt yellow gold case with a black onyx, brown tiger eye or green malachite stone dial. Five further variants combine a steel case with a blue lapis stone dial or a black onyx stone dial.   #GucciTimepieces Gucci has pioneered several collaborative projects, sharing its vision in the digital space.

DIOR PRESENTS THE MEN’S SUMMER 2021 COLLECTION AND THE ARTISTIC COLLABORATION WITH AMOAKO BOAFO

Fashion Week THERE IS THE WESTERN WORLD’S PERCEPTION OF AFRICA AND THEN THERE IS ACTUALLY THE REAL AFRICA. THE AFRICA YOU COME FROM OR HAVE REGULARLY VISITED. KIM JONES AND AMOAKO BOAFO REPRESENT BOTH. BOAFO, A PAINTER BORN IN ACCRA, GHANA; JONES, BORN IN LONDON WITH A CHILDHOOD SPENT IN ETHIOPIA, BOTSWANA, KENYA, TANZANIA AND VARIOUS OTHER PLACES IN AFRICA, INCLUDING BOAFO’S NATIVE GHANA. A HOME I IMAGINE HE WAS REMINDED OF WHEN HE CAME ACROSS AMOAKO’S ART IN 2019 AT THE RUBELL MUSEUM IN MIAMI WHERE HE WAS A RESIDENT ARTIST. AMOAKO’S ART DROWNS THE VIEWER IN THE SHIMMERING LIGHT OF THE BLACK GAZE, WHICH WE SO RARELY SEE IN FASHION OR THE ART WORLD. EACH OF HIS SUBJECTS CELEBRATES BLACK LIFE, BLACK SKIN SHROUDED IN EXUBERANT COLORS SPLAYED ACROSS HIS CANVASES. COMBINING HIS TOOLS WITH AMOAKO’S, KIM BRINGS TO LIFE A WARDROBE INTENDED FOR THE PAINTER’S SUBJECTS. PULLING THESE BEAUTIFUL CHARACTERS OFF THE MUSEUM’S AND COLLECTORS’ WALLS WHERE THESE WORKS NORMALLY DWELL AND BRINGING THEM TO A SPACE WHERE AFRICAN CULTURE IS AT TIMES REFERENCED BUT RARELY FULLY ACKNOWLEDGED IS WHERE KIM’S TALENT AS A DESIGNER EXTENDS BEYOND JUST A GARMENT AND ASCENDS TO WHERE ALL ARTISTS ASPIRE TO GO... TO THE HEART OF A STORY, AND THE MOST POWERFUL STORY IS A STORY RARELY TOLD.     A CORNUCOPIA OF STRIPES, FLORALS AND NEONS. THE COLORS, CUTS, PROPORTIONS, PARING, AND LAYERING OF THE GARMENTS ARE ALL ARTFULLY MANIPULATED BY THE BLACK GAZE OF AMOAKO’S PAINTINGS. KIM DOESN’T HIDE HIS HAND, WHICH GUIDES THIS COLLECTION PURPOSELY, BECAUSE THE HAND IS AFRICA, AND THROUGH THAT, EDUCATION IS GAINED, A STORY IS TOLD AND A PAINTER AND HIS SUBJECTS ARE CELEBRATED IN THE CONTEXT OF A DIOR COLLECTION THAT SHOWS ANOTHER CHAMBER OF KIM’S VAST INFLUENCES AND HIS ABILITY TO HARNESS THE CULTURES HE HAS EXPERIENCED IN HIS LIFETIME. THIS ISN’T JUST A COLLECTION; THIS A SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TWO ARTISTS THAT GIVES BIRTH TO A COLLECTION OF CLOTHING THAT IS MORE THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS. TWO MEN WHO LOVE AFRICA AND ITS PEOPLE, TELLING THEIR STORIES IN SPACES THESE SUBJECTS RARELY GET TO GRACE, AND IN THAT LIES THE POINT OF ALL THIS.

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.
