LOEWE PRESENTS THE SPRING & SUMMER 2022 MEN ́S RUNWAY COLLECTION

Fashion Week LOEWE presents the Spring Summer 2022 men’s runway collection in printed form. The message is one of electrifying escapism, of hope and optimism.     Hedonistic release: the LOEWE Men’s Spring Summer 2022 collection is charged with the electrifying promise of intimacy and the feel of human touch. Creative director Jonathan Anderson keeps shapes at once abstract and straightforward, letting colours explode in a riot of saturated hues.     The theme of the night out is inspired by the work of New York-based, German artist Florian Krewer (b.1986), one of the most exciting new voices in contemporary painting. Autobiographical, yet free from an overt narrative, his work begins in either found or personal photographs he has taken. With a colour palette presenting a surprising range of night-dark blacks, unclean whites and arti cially-sweetened pinks, purples and blues, Krewer’s paintings, populated with characters that are free and chaotic, explore con icts and desires consumed in the public spaces of cities.     A sexual energy is released into the action, with glimpses of the body, or its parts, revealed by draping or strategically placed cutouts. Tripping out translates into an idea of distortion, with coats spouting metal plaques on the back or tops dematerialising into transparent multiple layers. Sequinned animal prints and the all-over paillette leave an insouciantly kitsch trail. The juxtaposition of the pragmatic and the just-plain-bonkers sets the swinging, energetic tone. Logo-patterned trench coats, leather parkas, zip-up coats gathered at the waist, roomy cargo shorts in earthy hues are juxtaposed with draped tunics, cut-out multi-layer jumpers, all-in-ones, space-dye neckerchief tops and trousers made of rope in acrylic colourways. Matching tops and shorts, or tops and trousers, are distorted by prints and decoration.     The looks are accessorised with folded boots, sandals, colourful slippers, bumbags, either in small or mini sizes. The multifaceted Puzzle arrives, for the rst time, in a supple hobo shape or as a bumbag in two sizes, the small and the mini. The LOEWE Anagram jacquard with bright neon pink and apple green colourways on rolltop backpacks and bumbags. Round glasses with brightly coloured frames add another feisty touch.     Joy and freedom come to the fore.     #LOEWE #LOEWESS22 LOEWE presents the Spring Summer 2022 men’s runway collection in printed form.

STEP INTO LOUBIFUTURE TO DISCOVER CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN’S SPRING-SUMMER 2022 MEN’S COLLECTION IN AUGMENTED REALITY

STEP INTO LOUBIFUTURE TO DISCOVER CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN’S SPRING-SUMMER 2022 MEN’S COLLECTION IN AUGMENTED REALITY

Accessories To unveil his Spring-Summer 2022 men’s collection, Christian Louboutin pursues his exploration of new digital territories with LoubiFuture. Following his avatars’ adventures on the animated gaming app Zepeto and the 3D interactive experience of LoubiAirways, LoubiFuture mixes augmented and extended realities to create a unique and immersive experience, wrapped in a colourful retro-futuristic aesthetic.     Featuring French singer Julien Granel - renowned for his vivid, pop universe - the rst part of this animation uses extended reality to take you through a vibrant odyssey across many worlds. Supported by an original music track entitled Mirage, the video invites you to follow Julien in a Vaporwaved 80’s dream, leading you from neon skycrapers LoubiTown to a sunset on the beach, to The Grand Finale atop a tower in a jungle populated by a surreal tropical wildlife.     This epic journey leads into a double showroom where displayed styles from the new collection are available to view in augmented reality. The rst room celebrates this season’s new sneaker: The Arpoador, a tribute to Christian Louboutin’s love for Brazil, named after the rocky junction that lies between Ipanema and Copacabana. These all-terrain sneakers are inspired by Brazilian modernist architecture and its love for curves are embodied in the sneaker’s exibility and versatility. Modelled and inserted in a Vaporwave setting, the 5 colourways deconstruct and reconstruct themselves in a very casual way.     A smoky tunnel leads to the second room, the Argosphere, imagined as a constantly moving optical- ber space featuring the second key line of the collection: the Our Georges. Designed in black calf leather or silver antispecchio, the three Our Georges styles are the perfect mix between style and purpose thanks to the oversized, yet light lug sole with an exaggerated signature welt and red insert at the back.     Leathergoods are showcased with three new seasonal additions: the BackParis backpack, the LoubiTown pouch and the Ruistote bag.     All styles are experienceable in real life with augmented reality through a QR Code to scan. The style is immediately modelized in the environment surrounding you and can be explored through all angles with a very precise sense of details dear to the designer.     Tomorrow is sooner than you think...   To unveil his Spring-Summer 2022 men’s collection, Christian Louboutin pursues his exploration of new digital territories with LoubiFuture.

GIVENCHY PARFUMS LAUNCHES THE CREATION OF AN NFT IN SUPPORT OF THE LGBTQIA+ CAUSE

Fragrances To mark Pride Month this year, Givenchy Parfums states its support for the LGBTQIA+ cause by launching an unprecedented project: the brand has decided to team up with London gallery owner & LGBTQIA+ activist Amar Singh and artists Rewind Collective to create a digital artwork which will be sold for the benefit of the Le MAG Jeunes organisation (https://www.mag-jeunes.org/). An initiative which perfectly reflects the House’s approach, according to which disruptive creativity and innovation always go hand in hand with values of respect and inclusion.     After having ventured into the field of gaming by creating makeup looks for the video game Animal Crossing, Givenchy Parfums is now exploring the new world of NFTs (“Non Fungible Tokens”, digital works encoded in a way that ensures their uniqueness and authenticity). The House thus becomes the first beauty brand to come up with an NFT and to put this innovation at the service of an essential cause.     Drawing inspiration from the House’s hallmarks, as well as the colours of Pride Month, this original virtual artwork is being unveiled today on the @givenchybeauty Instagram page. It will then be sold exclusively in a limited series of 1,952 on VeVe, the largest mobile-first digital collectibles platform. After the sale that will take place from June 21 to June 26, the proceeds will be entirely donated to the Le MAG Jeunes organisation.     This initiative is fully in line with Givenchy Parfums’ approach, which aims to promote a culture open to all types of diversity. The singularity and expertise of its employees are a precious source of creativity and innovation. Givenchy Parfums ensures that all are included so that they are totally free to be themselves and can fully express their potential. Each talent is unique and the strength of the House relies on merging these differences.

Fashion spreads were just one element in an editorial mix that focused on culture in the broadest sense, with a keen eye on how the past informs the present.     Narrated by a timeless theme explored through photography, art, literature and journalism, Acne Paper published the work of top level contributors from di erent generations and was admired for its elegant art direction and high production value.     The book includes the work of legendary photographers such as David Bailey, Saul Leiter, Sarah Moon, Snowdon, Irving Penn and Paolo Roversi, as well as image makers of younger generations including Roe Ethridge, Jamie Hawkesworth, Julia Hetta,Viviane Sassen and Sølve Sundsbø, to name but a very few.     Edited byThomas Persson, Acne Paper’s editor- in-chief and creative director, the book features interviews with and contributions from Azzedine Alaïa, Isabelle Huppert, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Kim Jones, David Lynch, Malcolm McLaren, Arthur Mitchell, Glenn O’Brien, Hans Ulrich Obrist,Tilda Swinton and GillianWearing.     For the cover and opening portfolio, Christopher Smith, known for his self portraits, has given his artistic interpretation of Acne Paper and its fteen themes.     Acne Paper. I would not have dared starting it had I known how it would turn out, how many fantastic people and wonderful creative encounters I would experience. And had I known how much I would miss it, I would never have stopped.” Jonny Johansson, Creative director and co-founder of Acne Studios     “Acne Paper was a lovingly crafted magazine where many talented people came together. Each issue involved individuals from all walks of life, personalities whose cultural backgrounds or areas of knowledge had probably never been featured in the same publication before.” Thomas Persson, Editor-in-chief and creative director of Acne Paper     The book will be available for purchase in selected Acne Studios stores, acnestudios.com and selected bookstores across Japan from end of June 2021.       Acne Studios is a Stockholm based multidisciplinary fashion house and publisher of the magazine Acne Paper (2005 - 2014) as well as the books Snowdon Blue by Snowdon (2012), Rodeo byVince Aletti (2013),Schlesinger Sculpture by Peter Schlesinger (2015) and Acne Paper byThomas Persson (2021).

The new Montblanc x Maison Kitsuné capsule blends iconic lines of Montblanc leather pieces with the casual and curious attitude that defines the Kitsuné’s Art de Vivre. Crafted from Saffiano printed leather and featuring a reinterpretation of Maison Kitsuné signature ‘Camo Fox’ print the collection includes a selection of leather goods in different formats, accessories and belt designed for fearless creatives who express themselves in individual and original ways.     “Kitsuné”, the Japanese word for “fox”, is a symbol of versatility that according to legend possesses the power to change its appearance, just like Kitsuné. The brand has made a name for itself adapting its repertoire according to ever evolving inspiration, blending a fashion label (Maison Kitsuné), music label (Kitsuné Musique) and cafés, roasteries, bars and restaurants (Café Kitsuné).     “What makes this partnership so dynamic and exciting is bringing together two Maisons with very different origins, stories and philosophies, yet complimentary mindsets. What we have created with this collaboration is a new, distinctive and original Art de Vivre that brings together the self- expression, creativity and playfulness of Maison Kitsuné and the passion, determination and inspiration that defines Montblanc as the Maison of Luxury Business Lifestyle,” says Vincent Montalescot, Executive Vice President Marketing, Montblanc.     Just like the multi-layered Art de Vivre enjoyed by the followers of Maison Kitsuné across different lifestyle areas, Montblanc supports and inspires those striving to leave their mark, doers who seamlessly merge their professional aspirations and other parts of their daily life into one art de vivre.

BURBERRY PRESENTS THE NEW SPRING & SUMMER 2022 COLLECTION

BURBERRY PRESENTS THE NEW SPRING & SUMMER 2022 COLLECTION

Fashion Week This presentation is all about the power and the beauty of self-expression and about escaping and coming together as one to celebrate our creativity.     I have always been inspired by music and by its ability to transport your mind – how it can connect you with times, places and people beyond boundaries. Music has played a big role in my life, like a running soundtrack and energy throughout my youth. So many of my memories forged through music take me back to an incredible time when I was discovering myself – my voice, my identity, my creativity – sharing my experiences with friends and sometimes even strangers along the way. It was like being on a universal journey, brought together by a collective sense of openness, acceptance and opportunity.     I wanted the collection to capture that free spirit of youth and its honest and daring attitude, that sense of experimentation and fluidity. There is a strong feeling of unity but also of individuality – encouraging and uplifting each other to express ourselves freely. It’s a very raw energy that’s infectious, exciting and full of life. Like an awakening.’ Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer     For the Burberry Spring/Summer 2022 menswear presentation, Riccardo Tisci melds the feelings of freedom and togetherness in an exploration of the forces that connect and inspire us – those which make us feel alive. Creating a moment of youthful positivity, the presentation gracefully centres on the power of the spiritual and the energy of music and movement.     Filmed in the outdoors, swathes of sand are contrasted against the minimalist and raw urban structure of the striking Millennium Mills in Royal Victoria Docks, East London. A slew of models cut a bold path through the set, each distinguished with daring individuality. In an unflinchingly honest representation of freedom of expression, the collection challenges conventional codes with assured fluidity. The looks brim with youthful experimentation and sensuality, expressed through rebellious faux piercing accessories and black leather halterneck vests, coats and briefs. Tailoring and outerwear are similarly readdressed with sleeveless non-conforming silhouettes and abstract prints. The collection’s name ‘Universal Passport’ can be seen emblazoned across sleeveless mesh T-shirts and cotton shirts, affirming the presentation’s message of connectivity and exploration.     A trance-like soundtrack acts as the anthem to draw together additional gatherings of revellers, interspersed throughout the space yet transported to another plane by the music of British-formed music group Shpongle. The music transcends the everyday to an open, uninhibited space where individuals come together to connect, actively participating in this collective experience to celebrate creativity without boundaries. An exaltation of dynamic youth.     Drawing upon Burberry’s long-standing support of community spirit and freedom of expression, Riccardo Tisci curates an energetic experience full of anticipation for the discovery of new and unknown spaces to explore together.

FENDI presents the new Men’s Spring & Summer 2022 Collection

FENDI presents the new Men’s Spring & Summer 2022 Collection

Fashion Week From the unprecedented perspective of the FENDI headquarters inside the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, the landscape sprawls out in a 360° vista towards the seven hills of Rome, the Apennine mountains and glimpses of the Mediterranean Sea. Nature and architecture melt into a spectacular canvas of soft colour, evolving through the course of the day to reveal the dynamic topography of the region in an infinitely changing light. “How you see things – and from where you see them – has never been more important,” says Silvia Venturini Fendi, Artistic Director of FENDI Accessories and Menswear. “Our singular point of view in this period has modified our perception of the world – and mine has become so linked to what I see from the arches and the rooftop of our building. It is almost like a bird’s eye view of Rome from here. The colours and the perspective are always changing – the soft palette of the Roman sky across the day is so beautiful and I wanted it to be a focal point of this collection.”   Reflections on watching the world from above have inspired the FENDI Men’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection, a rich interplay of lightness and ease with a laser sharp focus on the future of luxury. A subtle palette echoes spring flora and the transient skies in pastel shots of lemon and lime, ice blue, lavender, pistachio and peony against mineral shades of travertine, chalk, graphite and slate. Like a daydream from FENDI to the world, the immediate surroundings of the Roman hinterland inform prints, shapes and workmanship, in an effortless study of proportions and scale. Plucked from the FENDI archives, an illustrated map of Rome becomes FENDI Land, a cartographic drawing of the city where the Palazzo Fendi springs up at its centre and the Tiber river flows through a labyrinth of buildings and streets adorned here and there with freehand FF logos. In a harmonious suite of topographic simulations entitled FENDI Earth, abstract contoured motifs float across linen silk suiting, jacquard denim, plush crochet tees and intarsia shearling.   The conceptual distortion of scale creates new tailoring volumes, as hybrid summer suiting combines a multitude of materials, shapes and utility details. Abbreviated wool jackets are cropped at the torso or split with nylon organza and peak lapel linen blazers are fitted with pen pockets and earpods compartments. Pockets drop beneath hemlines and jackets unbutton down the hips, whilst below the waist multi-pocket city shorts define the silhouette alongside straight trousers split at the ankle or panelled in a binary of double cotton and suede.   New outerwear exhibits the inimitable prowess of the FENDI leather atelier, with vented trench coats, roomy windcheaters and overshirts punctuated by Selleria stitching and embossed detailing on reversible suede, calfskin and sustainable garment-dyed cotton. Shirting in crisp poplin or light woven cashmere features fabric buttons for an all-over monochrome tonality broken elsewhere by a series of collaged fabrications featuring mismatched jacquard collars and striped cotton sleeves. Knits follow the engineered contours of the FENDI Earth motifs in featherweight cashmere intarsia ensembles alongside zipped two-tone double cashmere and polo tops in ribbed or crochet cotton. Mock neck pullovers and tees in crochet mink scoop up in the front, exposing utility belts strung with FENDI loop charms.   The FENDI Men’s Spring/Summer 2022 accessories collection is a playful escape from reality, subverting everyday objects with the heights of FENDI craftsmanship. Swimming goggles and swimming caps in collaboration with ARENA join ping-pong racket bags as ironic summer essentials, and the Baguette is shrunk as a jewellery pouch on a fine waist chain. The Peekabooappears in matte nylon, finished with burnished edges or Selleria macro stitches, while the Baguette returns as a roomy messenger or perspex clutch. New luggage shapes in canvas and printed FF logo mesh feature a bonded convex profile for a ‘fisheye’ effect, and the new Fendiness utility buckle appears on a series of nylon webbing backpacks and crossbody styles.   Evolving from the moulded FENDI Flow sneaker, buckled sandal styles join a monochrome slip-on knit sneaker with injected appliqué details in a pastel palette. Soft suede desert boots with FF logo buckles expound upon the season’s outdoor inspirations alongside flatform wicker double strap sandals finished in plush details or Selleria stitching.     Directed by Nico Vascellari, the FENDI Men’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection film is a majestic ode to the Roman landscape with an homage to the tropes of early science fiction cinema. Mapping the parameters of the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, models reveal the building’s Rationalist architecture in precise twists and turns as day fades into night and the FENDI headquarters comes to life in a spectacular pulsing light show. Conceived by the Italian composer Alessandro Cortini, the film is accompanied by a 9-minute bespoke electronic composition for FENDI featuring synthesiser tracks inspired by interstellar travel and new perspectives on the monumental setting as seen from above.

The colours and the perspective are always changing – the soft palette of the Roman sky across the day is so beautiful and I wanted it to be a focal point of this collection.”   Reflections on watching the world from above have inspired the FENDI Men’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection, a rich interplay of lightness and ease with a laser sharp focus on the future of luxury. A subtle palette echoes spring flora and the transient skies in pastel shots of lemon and lime, ice blue, lavender, pistachio and peony against mineral shades of travertine, chalk, graphite and slate. Like a daydream from FENDI to the world, the immediate surroundings of the Roman hinterland inform prints, shapes and workmanship, in an effortless study of proportions and scale. Plucked from the FENDI archives, an illustrated map of Rome becomes FENDI Land, a cartographic drawing of the city where the Palazzo Fendi springs up at its centre and the Tiber river flows through a labyrinth of buildings and streets adorned here and there with freehand FF logos. In a harmonious suite of topographic simulations entitled FENDI Earth, abstract contoured motifs float across linen silk suiting, jacquard denim, plush crochet tees and intarsia shearling.   The conceptual distortion of scale creates new tailoring volumes, as hybrid summer suiting combines a multitude of materials, shapes and utility details. Abbreviated wool jackets are cropped at the torso or split with nylon organza and peak lapel linen blazers are fitted with pen pockets and earpods compartments. Pockets drop beneath hemlines and jackets unbutton down the hips, whilst below the waist multi-pocket city shorts define the silhouette alongside straight trousers split at the ankle or panelled in a binary of double cotton and suede.   New outerwear exhibits the inimitable prowess of the FENDI leather atelier, with vented trench coats, roomy windcheaters and overshirts punctuated by Selleria stitching and embossed detailing on reversible suede, calfskin and sustainable garment-dyed cotton. Shirting in crisp poplin or light woven cashmere features fabric buttons for an all-over monochrome tonality broken elsewhere by a series of collaged fabrications featuring mismatched jacquard collars and striped cotton sleeves. Knits follow the engineered contours of the FENDI Earth motifs in featherweight cashmere intarsia ensembles alongside zipped two-tone double cashmere and polo tops in ribbed or crochet cotton. Mock neck pullovers and tees in crochet mink scoop up in the front, exposing utility belts strung with FENDI loop charms.   The FENDI Men’s Spring/Summer 2022 accessories collection is a playful escape from reality, subverting everyday objects with the heights of FENDI craftsmanship. Swimming goggles and swimming caps in collaboration with ARENA join ping-pong racket bags as ironic summer essentials, and the Baguette is shrunk as a jewellery pouch on a fine waist chain. The Peekabooappears in matte nylon, finished with burnished edges or Selleria macro stitches, while the Baguette returns as a roomy messenger or perspex clutch. New luggage shapes in canvas and printed FF logo mesh feature a bonded convex profile for a ‘fisheye’ effect, and the new Fendiness utility buckle appears on a series of nylon webbing backpacks and crossbody styles.   Evolving from the moulded FENDI Flow sneaker, buckled sandal styles join a monochrome slip-on knit sneaker with injected appliqué details in a pastel palette. Soft suede desert boots with FF logo buckles expound upon the season’s outdoor inspirations alongside flatform wicker double strap sandals finished in plush details or Selleria stitching.     Directed by Nico Vascellari, the FENDI Men’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection film is a majestic ode to the Roman landscape with an homage to the tropes of early science fiction cinema. Mapping the parameters of the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, models reveal the building’s Rationalist architecture in precise twists and turns as day fades into night and the FENDI headquarters comes to life in a spectacular pulsing light show. Conceived by the Italian composer Alessandro Cortini, the film is accompanied by a 9-minute bespoke electronic composition for FENDI featuring synthesiser tracks inspired by interstellar travel and new perspectives on the monumental setting as seen from above.

ETRO PRESENTS THE NEW MEN'S COLLECTION FOR SPRING & SUMMER 2022

Fashion Week Travelling in a Joyful State of Grace   Everything revolves around sine waves, there are ups and downs, apparently it seems that everything is going wrong, then suddenly it restarts better and stronger than ever. - Franco Battiato, Sicily 2010   This show is for you, Maestro! With Gratitude, Admiration and Love, Kean   The “Travelling in a Joyful State of Grace” collection wants to be a tribute to Franco Battiato, a man, a musician, an artist and a thinker that deeply influenced the vision and the life of Kean Etro. The two met in 1985 when Kean, still very young, was not involved yet in the ETRO business and that year created for the brand the stage set for Franco Battiato’s “Mondi Lontanissimi” tour.   A metaphysical trip. Beyond time and space.   For Spring Summer 2022, ETRO men’s creative director Kean Etro explores one of the most iconic signatures of the brand, its nomadic spirit.   Travelling also becomes a state of the mind and of the heart. Meditation brings to unexplored territories. In a joyful state of grace.   In the footsteps of Bruce Chatwin and of Dame Agatha Christie, ETRO’s nomadic journey tinges with reminiscences of archeological explorations in sun-drenched lands, where reality and dream merge.   To the tone of Franco Battiato’s masterpiece ‘L’Era del Cinghiale Bianco’, ETRO’s soul travelers take the catwalk, - set in the surreal, suspended atmosphere of the Scalo Farini area in Milan, where nature unexpectedly makes its way through the concrete, - wearing languid, slightly sensual styles, designed to feel good.   Nothing is as it seems. The sunrise on a citrus grove inspires the sorbet and vitamin colors, while the darker tones with silver accents echo a fascinating dusk. Everything starts where it ends.   More sporty pieces layered on kaftans are crafted from silk cadi and the classic tennis knitted vests this time feature silk georgette inserts for a new free-spirited and meaningful effortless approach.
