Louis Vuitton's “Game On” collection

Accessories Fashion is a game. Presented during Louis Vuitton’s 2021 Cruise Collection by Artistic Director of Women’s Collections Nicolas Ghesquière, Game On sees creative freedom playing with canvas and lines mingling between the Monogram flowers and four suits of a card deck. French actor and Louis Vuitton ambassador Léa Seydoux embodies this new collection and jumps into a fantasy illusion where clubs bloom, spades pierce, diamonds sparkle, and the almighty heart reigns. Through a transversal collection, Game On plays its ace on the House’s most iconic pieces including leather goods, ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories.     Game On Canvas sees the Monogram reinterpreted on a black or white background with contrasting colours of bright blue and poppy red - a tiny heart replaces the House’s signature blossom. Here, the Petite Malle and Vanity PM in black and white make for an eye-catching statement. The geometric Square bag in white leather with a golden chain ups the ante.     The Dauphine, Speedy, Neverfull, and Keepall in Game On Monogram are adorned with enlarged suits of cards, giant hearts and blossoms in vivid red, blue, pink and purple, paired with golden hardware. A pair of Archlight trainers in white with leather trimmings sport a bright red heart, perfect to pair with the Paname bags duo. The queen of hearts, the Monogram Heart bag, stands true to its name as the first ever heart shaped bag. Raising the stakes, Capucines BB in white Taurillon leather and the Twist in white Epi leather complete this game of illusion.     A royal flush, the collection expresses a particular art of living that keeps the trunk-making heritage alive. It’s the symbolism of a deck of cards, he traveller’s loyal companion, endless entertainment that cultivates togetherness. Game On is a lighthearted adventure in which all of the House’s spheres of expertise play a role, driven by passionate craftsmanship, their winning hand.     Already available in selected Louis Vuitton stores worldwide.   Fashion is a game.

FENTY releases four new shoes to round off your fall/winter looks

Accessories FENTY releases four new shoes to round off your fall/winter looks. Designed by Amina Muaddi, this shoe drop introduces four irresistible new designs to satisfy the most ardent of shoe fans. Available on FENTY.com   “I wanted to create footwear that represented the muse and the brand: strong, but refined and feminine” – Amina Muaddi     Selling out in record time, Muaddi’s summer collection for FENTY introduced a new inverted stiletto heel and delicate woven structures around the foot – statement features which carry through to the new designs. For the 11-20 fall release, she presents a pump, a sling back and two sandals, including a variation on last season’s best-selling Caged In sandal. Kicking off the collection is the Corset Pump, a modern take on the classically sexy stiletto, designed for the female gaze. Known for her use of pop materials to create glass-slipper-like shoes, Muaddi brings in a glossy, transparent PVC for the first colorway of the design in Electric Blue. With a pointy toe and accentuated heel, Corset Pump builds on last season’s theme of braiding in PVC laces threaded through eyelets across the foot, tying up at the ankle. Corset Pump is also available in Coco White leather with a metallic silver stiletto. Elevating everyday looks with effortless glamour, the second style, Don’t be Square, is a square-toed sling-back pump made from soft, rippling leather. Available in Ivory, the Don’t be Square has a chic, subtle design, aesthetically comparable to last season’s wearable Meshy Mule.     The showstopping third style, Ribbon Ropes, is a shiny stiletto sandal in Candy Pink or Jet Black. Structured satin ribbons and delicate crystal-embellished straps weave across the foot, curling up around the ankle to the mid-calf.     Finally, we return to where we started: the seductive Caged-In sandals. Originally designed in summery Candy Pink and Coco White, the Caged In returns in fall colors Electric Blue, Coco White, Jet Black and Crystal Black with the same caged structure of woven leather straps running all the way from the toe to the top of the calf.     Four new design, in four colors, the 11-20 Amina Muaddi collection is available now at FENTY.com and from November 14th on farfetch.com and levelshoes.com FENTY releases four new shoes to round off your fall/winter looks.

Yannis Sergakis presents his new collection

Jewelry You may see this girl walking in the Parisian lighted alleys or strolling barefoot on one of the Greek islands known for its hues of blue. She’s merging in a 70’s setting, showing off her elegance, revealed by her simplicity. Not imposing her style, but wearing it in the most nuanced and subtle way. A touch of black here, a touch of white there, exhibiting her very own and unique version of modernity.   Diamonds that work for every day. Delicate, elegant, ethereal, designed to be worn, instead of over-shadowing the one wearing them. Pieces that de ne the concept of discreet luxury and intriguing simplicity; craftsmanship defined by pace and dedication. Each piece is introduced in its own time; when it is perfect and ready to leave the workshop. Inspiration is drawn from beautiful moments, a book, a stroll, a sweet night, conversations with friends, laughs, the sparkleof a Cycladic wine, islands, emotions. The challenge is how the two eternal symbols, gold and diamonds, can create a design that best captures these emotions every time.     About Yannis Sergakis:   Born literally into precious stones - the lifelong Athenian spent his childhood in the showroom of his diamond trader uncles – Yannis still relishesseeing diamonds sparkle every day. A love affair first expressed through collecting and trading, much laterthrough designing. Having gone through a full diamond circle, he shifted to launch his own brand, evolving ideas that grew from his background and Greece’s notable heritage in jewellery-making, yet driven by his ability to create pieces with both a sense of past craftsmanship and a contemporary energy.     A testament to his impact is the popularity of the house’s signature Charnières, an early reveal of his point of view in wearable ne jewellery design. A buy-less advocate, Yannis truly wishes for people to take the time to appreciate and enjoy each single piece that comes into theirhands.

FENDI Lays the Foundation Stone of FENDI Factory

Culture FENDI lays the foundation stone of FENDI Factory, its new pole of excellence located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside in Bagno a Ripoli, close to Florence, highlighting the Maison’s continuous commitment towards environmental sustainability and social responsibility.     To mark the importance of this milestone for the Roman luxury house, Serge Brunschwig, Chairman and CEO, planted a tree on the construction site: a Turkey oak, a symbol across different cultures of virtus, dignity and courage. In particular, the Turkey oak tree plays a key role in the Fendi Factory project, celebrating the local biodiversity of the area.     Covering a land surface of 8 hectares, FENDI Factory, which has been designed by Milan-based architecture firm Piuarch, will occupy a 13,000-square-meter area formerly housing the Fornace Brunelleschi kiln. FENDI kicked off the works in the area in August 2018 to clear and prepare the construction site.     “Italy is synonymous with tradition, history, beauty and above all excellence. We embrace the opportunity to invest in the Made in Italy and to sublimate the core values of craftsmanship, artisanal savoir-faire and the power of handcrafting. Expertise and experimentation are all elements that support our marketing and company culture and at FENDI we believe that keeping and transmitting this level of tradition is fundamental for the coming generations. We are very proud of our roots, of this new chapter in Bagno a Ripoli, offering our teams a sustainable and caring working environment, “states Serge Brunschwig, FENDI Chairman and CEO.     Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces, FENDI Factory will feature a series of buildings connected with squares and stairs that, located at different levels, will be harmoniously integrated into the natural conformation of the Tuscan hillside. With plenty of sunlight filtering through the large glass walls, the functional and efficient manufacturing plant will offer a healthy workplace, where artisans will be able to express their skills and creativity at their best. Designed to guarantee unparalleled efficiency, FENDI’s new plant, including a range of manufacturing areas, offices and warehouses, will feature rational spaces enabling an easy circulation of people and goods.   “The start of the works of the new FENDI Factory production facility in Bagno a Ripoli witnesses the importance of the development agreements promoted by the MiSE, which aims at supporting our companies in the process of technological transformation, while protecting both the skills of our workers and the reconversion of existing plants in the territories in which they are located”, states the Minister of Economic Development, Stefano Patuanelli. “Encouraging investments in training, research and development is in fact one of the pillars – adds Patuanelli – of the strategy that the MiSE is carrying out, also through the 4.0 Transition plan. Historic fashion brands like FENDI represent Italian excellence in the world. The contribution of this sector to economic growth and to the presence of Italy in international markets is strategic, just as it is fundamental to support the authenticity and craftsmanship of their productions. The challenge for our productive fabric is to combine Made in Italy with innovation, technology with digitalization, skilfully merging the old and the new know-how, ancient manual skills and 4.0 training, always with an attentive eye to environmental sustainability”, concludes the Minister.   “Our bond with FENDI is strong and rooted and we are proud to have co-financed the national program that today consolidates a historic brand, relaunches growth prospects and gives us the reconversion of an historical industrial site like the former Fornace Brunelleschi," declares Eugenio Giani, President of the Toscana region. “We are proud –of the development agreement that unblocked the Mise resources, focused on leather goods and on the use of innovative technologies, and that opens a season of new employment with the prospect of doubling jobs.”   “FENDI’s new site represents a news of absolute impact for the Metropolitan City of Florence and beyond, because it combines the recovery of the former Fornace Brunelleschi and the spaces of the area with technological and employment development, doubling, as a matter of fact, the number of employees. It is a great project that, on the other hand, finds support and further increase in expectation precisely because it can pride of operating in the ‘Greater Florance’”, says Dario Nardella, Mayor of Florence.     “The start of the construction works of the new FENDI facility at Capannuccia is, today, a wave of hope for the future in such a complex moment,” asserts Francesco Casini, Mayor of Bagno a Ripoli. “It’s a new demonstration of how Bagno a Ripoli is a territory of opportunities for those who want to realize quality investments and of how in Florence and Tuscany one can do, and do well, with rapid and definite times, a virtuous collaboration between private and public sectors. Once again, with this intervention, the road to sustainable development is taken, allowing one of the leading groups in the fashion industry to have a new production plant immersed in the beauty of Chianti, looking to Florence, with a remarkable and very important impact on the economy and employment of the entire Tuscan and Florentine territory. And all of this without consuming a new soil, yet recovering an abandoned, degraded and squatted industrial site, that for a long time has represented an environmental emergency, thus transforming a critical problem into an extraordinary opportunity.”   In keeping with the Roman luxury house’s continuous commitment towards sustainability, FENDI Factory has complied so as to aiming at the prestigious LEED Platinum certification. Both the perimeter and interior walls will be made of glass, enabling the sunlight to filter and offering employees serene views of the Tuscan countryside and of the impeccably designed courtyards presenting local varieties of plants and flowers. Enabling the new FENDI site to blend in with the environment, the external walls of the different building will match glass with a natural mix of soil and concrete in a signature earthy tone reflecting the color shades of the Tuscan hillside and celebrating the ancient tradition of the site.   In addition, FENDI has created a public park in the same area, opposite the kindergarten, featuring playgrounds, wide benches and following the same approach of biodiversity of the FENDI Factory landscape, with native plant species and some areas dedicated to the growth of plants to have as natural an effect as possible.     FENDI Factory is set to inaugurate in 2022.

Artipoppe releases a podcast series to inspire women

Artipoppe releases a podcast series to inspire women

On the Playlist Artipoppe releases a podcast series to inspire women to rethink their position and power in the world. In 2012 Anna van den Bogert founded Artipoppe, a Dutch babywearing brand. What started with a single baby carrier turned into much more. Not just a rapidly growing international business, but a way to connect with mothers worldwide and to give voice to an ongoing movement about how to create more space for mothers, for women, in today’s society. This is such a vast subject that Van den Bogert decided to create a podcast around it. In this series many inspirational thinkers are being interviewed about motherhood in general, but also about health, spirituality, fashion, social justice and how to save our planet for the future of our children. Our guests: co-founder of plant-based food program Sakara Life Danielle Duboise, member of the European parliament Samira Rafaela, healer Mama Medicine (Deborah Hanekamp), indigenous rights activist Nina Gualinga, food writer and entrepreneur Ella Mills (Deliciously Ella), birth doula Carson Meyer and many more.       In the first episode Van den Bogert will explain in detail what ‘The New Motherhood’ means to her. This is a term, a philosophy that Artipoppe’s founder has briefly touched on in interviews and on social media. In a nutshell, she believes that in our current patriarchal societies feminine energy and motherhood can oftentimes be smothered. Van den Bogert wants to make way for a world in which the mother, creator of all life, and families take center stage. Moving into a world, a future reality, that’s more about community, lifting each other up and really being connected. This extends to us being more connected to nature and therefore our human nature, listening to our instincts as people and parents.    Technically this would mean that mother and child, parent and child feel truly welcomed in all arenas of society. Whether taking a Zoom call, giving a lecture or attending a meeting with your baby in tow. New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern, who brought her child along in the first months after giving birth, is a huge inspiration to Van den Bogert. She would like to encourage women to trust themselves, trust their intuition, and to claim their space in society. Yet for that to unfold it should also become the status quo to see parent and child together anywhere in public. Also, when mothers bring a baby to a social gathering or breastfeed in public – without having to experience any social anxiety or fear of judgement. That’s where Van den Bogert would like to see a shift in consciousness. So mothers can feel empowered to walk their own path, to deeply connect to their babies and to express themselves for all that they are; a mother, a woman and so much more.    The New Motherhood is a holistic approach to motherhood and humanity as a whole. Motherhood touches all of our lives. So, in a way Artipoppe doesn’t just speak to mothers, fathers, but to everyone out there. It’s only together that we can achieve a brighter future with sustainability, inclusivity, connection and love as the norm.      Artipoppe’s products are made in Europe and delivered to over 70 countries worldwide. The brand is loved and worn by celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Jude Law, Shay Mitchell and many more. The Artipoppe Podcast will be out on December 2nd, hosted by freelance journalist Kaira van Wijk.

FENDI ROMA presents the new collection for the holidays

Fashion Get into the Holiday mood with FENDI’s new Collection dedicated to the most sparkling and wonderful time of the year.    The brand’s iconic FENDI Roma logo becomes the protagonist of a Collection, including Women’s and Men’s Ready-to-Wear and Accessories, designed to bring a touch of urban sophistication to the winter wardrobe.    Conceived for modern travelers, the Collection is injected with a functional and versatile spirit. In the Women’s range, chunky knits with the FENDI ROMA logo are paired with hyper feminine skirts, while the classic tracksuit gets a chic makeover coming in a fluid viscose satin enriched with golden FENDI ROMA bands. Men’s urban puffers are rendered in the signature FENDI yellow, also used for maxi logo scarves, showing a cozy feel contrasting with the impeccable minimalism of slick suits.     To meet the needs of the chilly and rainy season, FENDI also collaborates with K-Way® to offer a chic, customized version of the legendary reversible nylon windbreakers, which can be folded in a pocket and carried as a pouch. The printed face, coming in mat black, is matched with a solid one, - black and gold for Women, dark blue for Men. For a truly luxurious touch, FENDI and K-Way® also developed a Women’s and Men’s exclusive style, where nylon is combined with an FF logo printed on mink fur in brown.    To shine bright at the upcoming holiday events, FENDI, along with creating a range of FF logo jewelry pieces, including earring and a necklace to tie around the waist,  also presents a range of glamorous styles, inspired by the eternally charming party vibe of New York’s nightlife mecca Studio 54.       Gold metallic accents take center stage in the show-stopping GoldenCapsule Collection. Silhouettes get fluid and languid in the Lurex jersey frocks. Draped collars and sculptural plunging necklines define the maxi dresses revealing sensual high slits, the mini frocks showing contrasting black piping. Gold cloque is crafted for pleated skirts and jumpsuits, all paired with logo mesh bodysuits worn as see-through underpinnings.    Inspired by the actual FENDI packaging, the FENDI Roma Packaging styles, which made their debut on the FENDI Men’s Fall/Winter 2020-2021 catwalk and followed in a pink color variation in the Women’s Collection, makes a comeback with Bags and Small Leather Goods framed in black and embellished with the iconic FENDI Roma logo. Developed in a restrained color palette of signature FENDI yellow and of delicate powder pink, the Collection plays with contrasts by juxtaposing the sharp cut and rigid constructions of the shopping bags to the cloud-like softness of the pouches featuring practical drawstrings. In addition, for a touch of exquisite extravaganza, the Collection also includes a bold interpretation of the Peekaboo bag decorated with a cascade of fringes.  An invite to enjoy the holiday season with a relaxed mood, jacquard, leather and shearling slippers featuring the iconic FF logo, while for more active explorations FENDI offers combat boots and revisited hiking ones with chunky soles.  Glamour, cozy or sporty…  Embrace the festive mood with the FENDI ROMA Holiday Collection.      Available in FENDI Boutiques and on fendi.com from November 2020.  Get into the Holiday mood with FENDI’s new Collection dedicated to the most sparkling and wonderful time of the year.    The brand’s iconic FENDI Roma logo becomes the protagonist of a Collection, including Women’s and Men’s Ready-to-Wear and Accessories, designed to bring a touch of urban sophistication to the winter wardrobe.    Conceived for modern travelers, the Collection is injected with a functional and versatile spirit.
