DIOR PRESENTS ITS AUTUMN-WINTER 2020-2021 HAUTE COUTURE COLLECTION

Fashion Week The autumn-winter 2020-2021 haute couture collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri was exclusively revealed online, at the heart of a magical film entitled Le Mythe Dior, directed especially for the House by Matteo Garrone, the emblematic Italian filmmaker who recently signed Pinocchio.     The Atelier’s virtuoso miniature creations come to life as if by magic, traveling through a dreamlike, fantasy universe. Embodying a veritable alchemy of the Dior dream, mythology and the silver screen, this moment of enchantment pays homage to the Théâtre de la mode, a unique event initiated in 1945 to promote French couture around the world, and Paris, more than ever, as the unrivaled capital of haute couture. Luxury being above all about the beauty of gesture, imbued with emotion and joie de vivre, it was essential and symbolic for the Creative Director of Dior women’s collections to in turn perpetuate and reinvent, during these unprecedented times, a spirit of freedom and renewal in the name of the creative energy passed down by Monsieur Dior.      It represents a major feat for Dior’s petites mains, who gamely rose to the challenge of executing miniature tailoring, involving an infinitely rigorous and passionate dialogue with a range of precious savoir-faire skills. The spellbinding collection highlights the noble character of the artisanal poetry that sculpted, shaped, embroidered and sublimated these exceptional creations. In creating these thirty-seven captivating silhouettes, Maria Grazia Chiuri wished to celebrate the work and the journeys of five indomitable, magnificently inspiring figures of the Surrealist movement: Lee Miller, Dora Maar, Dorothea Tanning, Leonora Carrington and Jacqueline Lamba. Each one a visionary, these audacious personalities transcended their role as “muse” by affirming their vocations as artists of dazzling talent.

Cartier introduces their Pasha community

Jewelry Rami Malek, Troye Sivan, Willow Smith, Maisie Williams and Jackson Wang: five authentic journeys, five accomplished talents captured by the New York fashion photographer Craig McDean.     With its distinctive codes and extraordinary design, the Pasha watch has always been for those who take a wider view of the world. This breadth of vision is shared by a new generation of talents who have cultivated their own uniqueness, like Maisie Williams, the English actress involved in various collaborative projects, or actor Rami Malek who is drawn to complex and captivating roles that don’t conform to Hollywood’s traditional standards. Personalities like the artists Troye Sivan or Willow Smith who rely on courage to assert themselves and have faith in their creativity and versatility; or in the desire to unite and connect young people, as shown by the success of the Chinese singer Jackson Wang.     “Since its creation in the 1980s, the Pasha watch has embodied a certain idea of success directly linked to its extroverted design, power and graphic nonconformism. It is as edgy as ever and in tune with today's new generation of creators. These new Pasha ambassadors owe their success to their differences, creativity, connection, multidisciplinary talents and generosity.” Arnaud Carrez, International Marketing and Communications Director of Cartier International     The Pasha de Cartier watch launches in China on 1st July and 4th September around the world. Available in 35 mm and 41 mm in steel, gold, vibrant diamond-set and skeleton movement versions.

Daniëlle Cathari: The Krul, First Memories of the Flourish of Approval

Fashion   With the Daniëlle Cathari Spring/Summer ‘20 collection, Cathari introduced her collaboration with Dutch artist Nazif Lopulissa, which was focused on the ‘Krul’, standing for the “flourish or approval”. The ‘Krul’, which is a typical Dutch symbol used when doing something right or to check something off the list, was inspired and drawn from Cathari’s personal experiences and moments within.     When starting with this concept, Cathari came across the works of Nazif, got inspired and felt related to his choice of colors, materials and shapes; it was an instant match. The collaboration resulted in not only artworks for the clothing, it also marked the first multidisciplinary product for the brand with the ‘Krul’ art object.     To highlight the ‘Krul’, Daniëlle Cathari collaborated with Dutch director Daan van Citters to bring the object into visualization through a conceptual video. Told through different stories by individuals in their personal environments, the video focuses on a nostalgic feeling and the first memories of the typical Dutch symbol.     The multifunctional ‘Krul’ art object is available to purchase at daniellecathari.com.     Credits: Creative Director: Daniëlle Cathari Director: Daan van Citters DOP: Milan van Dril Music: Joris Titawano Artist collaborator: Nazif Lopulissa   Special thanks to Britta Flinterman, Gijs Bouwens, Vera van Erp, Boudine Ottevanger and Malou Wüstefeld.       watch the full video here: https://vimeo.com/431749774     With the Daniëlle Cathari Spring/Summer ‘20 collection, Cathari introduced her collaboration with Dutch artist Nazif Lopulissa, which was focused on the ‘Krul’, standing for the “flourish or approval”.

KOMONO X ROYAL ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS ANTWERP FASHION DEPARTMENT

Accessories After a successful first edition, KOMONO is proud to renew its partnership with the fashion department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. KOMONO worked together with three master students in the creation of a pair of sunglasses linked to the students’ personal work. The result is an outspoken collection that bolsters the fresh vision of tomorrow’s top designers.     KOMONO x Annemarie Saric:   Inspired by the concept cars of the late 70s and their aerodynamic qualities, Annemarie Saric’s futuristic-looking proposition features a shaped lens and intricate temple detailing. Formed by a cut-out and collage technique of vintage car parts, the glasses are characterized by their highly sculptural effect.     KOMONO x Karolina Widecka:   Investigating the duality between a fragile appearance and an extreme shape, Karolina Widecka proposes a capsule drenched in superstition and symbolism. Inspired by ex votos and Mexican religious art, the glasses function as a token of protection for its wearer with its ‘broken glass’ upper bar.     KOMONO x Florentina Leitner:   Florentina Leitner took to the 60s and its psychedelic art to create a pair of glasses that have been stretched and liquified to a vertigo or spiralling effect. Paying tribute to the art icons of those days such as Peggy Guggenheim, the capsule is a modern reinterpretation of the avant-garde eyewear of yesteryear.     The collection will be made available, starting from July 2nd, through komono.com, KOMONO flagship stores and selected retailers for a suggested retail price of 199 euros. On the initiative of the students, part of the proceedings of this sale will go to Survived and Punished, a US-based organization who supports survivors of domestic and sexual violence who have been incarcerated or targeted by law enforcement. They also created an exclusive colorway of the sunglasses for each student, limited to 1 piece only. These pieces will sold during a 24h auction on their @komono Instagram page on the 1st of July. These styles are limited to one piece per student and will not be sold through any other channels. The proceedings of the highest bid will be donated to Survived and Punished.

Alexander McQueen releases womenswear Pre Fall 2020

Fashion British art nouveau and arts and crafts, the restrained elegance of modernism: the sinuous iris, the proud thistle and The Glasgow Rose. The windswept earth and Northern landscapes laid bare. The core of the earth and the treasures hidden beneath its surface. Metal ores: rich seams of gold, silver and copper running throughout. Mineralogy: crystal, agate, flint, rock; opaque and sculptural on the outside, jewelled and reflective within. The juxtaposition between sobriety and seduction, the raw and the refined, the textured and the smooth, the light and the dark, all contrasts true to the handwriting of the house of Alexander McQueen.   British art nouveau and arts and crafts, the restrained elegance of modernism: the sinuous iris, the proud thistle and The Glasgow Rose.
