ZEGNA AND LEICA JOIN FORCES IN A COLLABORATION TO BE LAUNCHED GLOBALLY

Design Fashion meets Photography: the exclusive collaboration between Zegna and Leica Camera, the legendary German camera manufacturer, yields a capsule collection of high-end camera accessories, possibly the most refined to date.      Debuted in January 2020 on the runway of the Ermenegildo Zegna XXX Winter 2020 Fashion Show, this highly expected capsule collection finally comes to life.  Designed for the modern photographer, in search of the most beautiful image but equally attentive to the subtle details of handmade craftmanship, the collaboration strengthens the link between two expressions of art and creativity, reflecting a broader dialogue between the two brands.      Zegna Artistic Director Alessandro Sartori, a photography enthusiast and authentic Leica lover, has always been inspired by photography as a creative language that he often visually uses as a reference for his collections. His own passion led Zegna to a collaboration built upon the mutual expression of creativity and innovation, craftsmanship and technicality which further cements Zegna’s reputation as a global luxury lifestyle brand.    The collaboration collection consists in PELLETESSUTATM camera holsters for Leica Q2 and Leica M cameras; PELLETESSUTATM protectors for Leica Q2 and Leica M cameras; functional crossbody bags called Insta-Pack, inspired by photographers’ attitude that fit almost all Compact Leica cameras (Leica V-Lux excluded) and the Leica CL with the 18mm ‘pancake’ Leica lens; carrying and wrist straps; Leica keyrings and round wallets (both for coins or the Leica Q2 lens cap) that feature luxury details and precious touch of the PELLETESSUTATM collection, an iconic Zegna special woven nappa, result of an innovative Ermenegildo Zegna research aimed to recreate precious fabric using extremely thin strips of selected nappa leather in place of fabric yarns.      “Zegna and Leica share the same values and a very deep integrity and quality towards the excellence of their own products; my wish is to build up a long chapter together. The vision and the DNA of Leica has always been genuine, an obsessive quest for quality, an extremely refined research, a very unique approach towards not only the world of camera and photography but mostly towards the craftsmanship and a distinctive syntax”says Alessandro Sartori, Zegna Artistic Director.     “What a wonderful addition: The creation of a Leica camera, moving images and a Zegna garment is unique and outstanding. Both brands share the same humanistic approach for values, design, sustainability, and quality”says Karin Rehn-Kaufmann, Leica Global Director Art and Leica Galleries.     The Zegna and Leica collaboration collection is distributed globally in an exclusive selection of Zegna Flagship Stores (such as New York City, Paris, London, Milan, Dubai, Shanghai, Beijing, Ginza, Isetan) as well as in 60 select Leica stores worldwide. The collection is also available on-line, on zegna.com and leica-camera.com.

A play between the  feminine and masculine,  & Other Stories presents a co-lab collection with Brøgger

A play between the feminine and masculine, & Other Stories presents a co-lab collection with Brøgger

Fashion Together with Brøgger, the up-and-coming London-based label helmed by the Danish designer Julie Brøgger, this season’s & Other Stories co-lab collection is a triumph of prints and colours that artfully balances feminine and masculine references. Inspired by the designer’s late mother, an attorney in the 1980s and 90s with a penchant for both soft, silky fabrics and power suits, the ready-to-wear pieces can fearlessly take you from day into night and beyond.     We had a chance to speak with Julie about the collaboration.     How are you staying creative during these strange times?   In the lack of outside influences, I have spent this time looking at more personal inspirations, like my mother’s wardrobe, that inspired the collection with & Other Stories. I’ve really missed all the London museums, thankfully they are reopening this week. Can’t wait to go back and get a bit of that creative fix it always gives me.     What is the collection inspired by and what is the story behind the collection?    My late mother was an attorney in the 80s and 90s and loved a good power suit for court, she would however always champion the feminine, believing it to be a great strength. Something to be celebrated, not dressed down.      How was it like collaborating with each other?   & Other Stories has a great team, and I think our mutual Scandinavian background means we have a similar approach to fashion. Wearability and function is important but so is creating pieces that are worth investing in, and stand out from the crowd.     Can you describe a modern woman in your own words?   She uses fashion as a sense of empowerment and dresses for herself and how it makes her feel, not the gaze of men.   Why have you chosen for this specific colour palette?   The prints have pretty pink shades but are balanced with darkness, I like to counterpart ‘pretty’, pretty in itself is not that interesting I think. Contrasting them makes both look better, like the soft blush with strong red in a suit.     Which specific target group would you like to reach with this collection?   The Brøgger customer is a bit different to the & Other Stories’, and their reach is much greater, so it is a unique opportunity to introduce Brøgger to women, who might not know us. The collection is designed for women who want to stand out and feel empowered with their choice of clothes, across ages and type.       Will the collection be dropped multiple times and are you planning on collaborating a second time?   It is all dropping in December, ready for the holiday season. I would love to do a summer collection with & Other Stories as well, time will tell.   Together with Brøgger, the up-and-coming London-based label helmed by the Danish designer Julie Brøgger, this season’s & Other Stories co-lab collection is a triumph of prints and colours that artfully balances feminine and masculine references.

GIVENCHY DEBUTS "TEASER" CAPSULE COLLECTION BY MATTHEW M. WILLIAMS

Fashion Givenchy is pleased to unveil a “Teaser” capsule of clothes and accessories from Creative Director Matthew M. Williams’ first collection for the House.     An edited selection from the Spring-Summer 2021 ready-to-wear collection features playful, slightly subversive and effortlessly elegant looks for both women and men. Directional pieces accentuate new tailoring for women as embodied by a long, fitted blazer with a draped collar and slim, high-rise trousers with fusing at the ankles. Denims are embellished with audacious, intricate treatments that give them unique crackled or lustrous finishes. A soft, denim-like jacquard with a textured weave reprises the House’s iconic 4G emblem. Statement outerwear includes a lightweight, tailored three- quarter length coat in croc-print calfskin bonded with nappa, and voluminous urban windbreakers also in croc-print leather or in black ottoman.     Key pieces for men include a single-breasted jacket with an overlay collar and the 4G emblem discreetly embroidered on the lining. Classic-fit trousers nod to the iconic Antigona bags with original yet discreet metallic details, as do boxy shirts with zip and snap closures. An oversized parka in technical ottoman emphasizes Givenchy’s of-the-moment urban spirit, with design elements that make it both functional and elegant. Hoodies and sweatshirts, too, are embellished with newly restyled Givenchy emblems.     A love of hardware being central to his fashion aesthetic, Matthew M. Williams created a series of tech- forward prints for T-shirts with a 3D chain-embossed detail at the neck or trompe l’oeil renderings of locks and eyelets clenched over spliced “GIVENCHY” lettering.     This season’s essential bags likewise feature distinctive hardware that was specially developed by Matthew M. Williams for Givenchy. The new Antigona in black box leather now has dual Givenchy signatures, longer handles and a 4G padlock. Additional styles include two cross-body bags, the unisex Vertical mini with chain and the Antigona U for men.     Footwear includes the Lock ankle boot, the Marshmallow wedge slide for women and flat sandal for men, and the GIV 1 high-performance men’s sneaker with a lightweight, transparent sole, in black or white.     The statement-making flat cap with horns and a black leather belt with a G-chain buckle round out this premiere.     The “Teaser” capsule collection will premiere exclusively in seven Givenchy stores in Europe, Asia and the US, as well as on givenchy.com in selected countries from December 1st to 22nd, 2020. It will be followed by the first official drop by Matthew M Williams, for Summer 2021, which will bow acrossGivenchy’s worldwide retail network on February 26th, 2021.

Kaspersky and KRAKATAU present unique collection customized by your digital imprint

Fashion Today, self-expression is not only about showing our individuality through the clothes we wear and how we look but also by what we do online - with many of us using new media to share our views and beliefs. How can people create their digital identities and express themselves while keeping their unique personality safe online? To raise awareness about the importance of privacy and freedom of self-expression, Kaspersky and international techware brand KRAKATAU have launched a collection of garments that can be customized via an owner’s digital identity imprint – the Safe_expression collection.   According to recent Kaspersky research, 37% of millennials think that they are too boring to ever be the victim of cybercrime. However, analysis of several Darknet markets by Kaspersky experts shows that our data can be valuable not only for us but also for cybercriminals. Thus, among the most prized and desired data sold on these markets are selfies that are shared with documents, such as passports or drivers’ licenses (worth up to $40-60), medical records (up to $30), credit card details (up to $20), PayPal accounts (up to $500), and full ID information (up to $10). This information can be used for various malicious purposes, from using peoples’ data to receive money, to blackmailing them.   The internet and online services give us vast opportunities to share our views and connect with people around the world, and we need to make sure it is a safe place to express ourselves. Today, being an individual means being brave and bold with your opinions and the task of safely expressing ourselves becomes a non-trivial one. Kaspersky is committed to protecting people’s unique data and aims to create opportunities so people can express themselves safely.     The exclusive collection designed with KRAKATAU invites you to create a garment that shows off your unique personality and reveals how ready you are to protect your privacy. The clothing items are based on a person’s digital imprint. By simply answering a few questions from a special chat bot about your online behavior and privacy habits, you will receive your very own unique print. The print is crafted from unique algorithms that analyze users’ privacy concerns. The more a person is concerned about their privacy – the more complex or the more harmonious a print will be.     “Expressing individuality has always been important for people and today we have a lot more opportunities to do it digitally. We see how people can create a positive change in the world by sharing their stories and what they stand for. But it’s also important that our self-expression should also be safe as each one of us is unique and the data we share online is of exceptional value, making it crucial for us all to know how to protect it,” comments Andrew Winton, Vice President for Global Marketing at Kaspersky. “By creating this collection with KRAKATAU we want to talk about privacy and safety in a way that it can relate to fashion and simply explain how your self-expression can remain independent and protected.”   “What we especially liked about this collaboration idea is the creative Do It Yourself (DIY) element, where people can customize clothes to fit their personalities. What’s more, the customization is not based on people’s emotions but on how they use their devices and their digital habits, which is highly important in today's digital world. In the end, security has become the key theme of the collection – it demonstrates how you can keep your data safe online, while the clothing items from the collection protect you from harsh real-world weather conditions,” comments the KRAKATAU team.     The Safe_expression limited collection uses experimental technologies and features t-shirts, sweatshirts and jackets in contrasting black and neon green colors. The items in the collection are made of Repreve functional recycling insulation and membrane fabric with water-repellent coating. Each piece is complemented by minimalistic design marks and can activate the idea behind the collection, which is to create a personalized garment customized by your digital imprint in an online builder, via the brand's website https://krakatauwear.com/pages/safe-expression. Today, self-expression is not only about showing our individuality through the clothes we wear and how we look but also by what we do online - with many of us using new media to share our views and beliefs. How can people create their digital identities and express themselves while keeping their unique personality safe online? To raise awareness about the importance of privacy and freedom of self-expression, Kaspersky and international techware brand KRAKATAU have launched a collection of garments that can be customized via an owner’s digital identity imprint – the Safe_expression collection.   According to recent Kaspersky research, 37% of millennials think that they are too boring to ever be the victim of cybercrime.
