TOMMY HILFIGER REIMAGINES ICONIC STYLES IN TOMMYXROMEO CAPSULE COLLECTION CO-DESIGNED WITH ROMEO HUNTE

Fashion Tommy Hilfiger, announces the launch of the Fall 2021 TommyXRomeo capsule co-designed by Mr. Tommy Hilfiger and Brooklyn designer and long-term mentee, Romeo Hunte. The collection dives into theTOMMY HILFIGER archives, using Romeo Hunte’s signature deconstruction techniques to reconstruct, remix and reimagine iconic pieces like the classic bonded trench coat remixed with sailing jacket color-blocking or clashed with a leather biker jacket. The TommyXRomeo capsule builds on the company’s ambitious People’s Place Program, a three-pillared platform with the mission of advancing representation in fashion and beyond. The Fall 2021 TommyXRomeo capsule will be available starting August 12, 2021 on tommy.com in the US and Europe, exclusive wholesale partner Selfridges, and on RomeoHunte.com.     “As a young, upcoming designer, I was lucky to be guided by incredible leaders who made a huge impact on my career,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “I am passionate about passing that on, mentoring the next generation of design talent. I’ve been supportive of and worked with Romeo Hunte for over five years. He is one of those truly exceptional newcomers – someone you know is going to make an impact as soon as you see his work.  I’m really proud of our capsule - it's truly a meeting point of our two worlds. Together we’ve really focused on passing the mic to the next generation of BIPOC creatives and thought leaders to increase representation and amplify their talent globally. Through the People’s Place Program, we want to give them a true platform to shine.”     “Tommy has been such a supportive mentor to me over the years,” said Romeo Hunte. “Reinvention is a fundamental part of my design DNA, so pushing the boundaries of the brand’s archives has been an incredibly creative and meaningful experience. We also wanted to take this concept further, challenging the status quo from the design process to the campaign and the crew to re-imagine and redefine the future. I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved and hope to inspire the next generation of talent to dream big”.       For the Fall 2021 TommyXRomeo capsule, Tommy Hilfiger opened the archives to Romeo, clashing classic TOMMY HILFIGER design codes with Romeo Hunte’s signature deconstruction techniques and with a focus on non-gender specific outerwear. The collection brings a modern and bold twist to the icons that the brand is best known for – the trench coat, the biker jacket, the Oxford shirt. Edgy yet sophisticated, each piece combines Manhattan prep with Brooklyn street, and boasts exceptional materials and elevated craftsmanship, showcasing the passion for detail that both Romeo Hunte and Tommy Hilfiger share.  A preppy button-down comes in unexpected, playful proportions, with the brand’s heritage Ithaca stripe reimagined in the colors of the New York City subway.      The TommyXRomeo campaign further aligns with Tommy Hilfiger’s People’s Place Program, which creates opportunity for creative talent from underrepresented BIPOC communities and increases visibility to foster a diverse and inclusive community both in front of, and behind, the camera. Shot in London, the campaign features models Ikram Abdi Omar, Aaliyah Hydes, Hidetatsu Takeuchi and Babacar N’Doye. The campaign crew includes:   Ronan Mckenzie (@ronanksm): Photographer, stylist, curator and founder of Home, a gallery and event space creating opportunity and recognition for BIPOC artists. Nathan Klein (@nathankleinstyling): Stylist whose styling philosophy reflects his culturally diverse background from growing up in London, U.K.  Amidat Giwa (@am_stagrams): Hairstylist whose clients include premium brands and international fashion publications.  Megumi Matsuno (@megumi.matsuno): Makeup-artist who has worked with multiple global brands and clients.     To further bring the campaign to life, two local artists in London and New York City will be invited to reinterpret the campaign imagery through vibrant wall art in key city spots in the week prior to the collection launch. Painter and pattern maker Uzo Njoku (@uzo.Art) will paint a mural in her unique artistic style on Nassau Avenue and Banker Street in Brooklyn, New York City. In London, fine artist Annan Affotey (@annanaffotey) will showcase his artistic talent with a mural at 112 Tabernacle Street. The murals will both include a QR code for consumers to explore bonus video content - including behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the murals and interviews with the artists - as well as to view and purchase the collection online.   In addition, as part of the campaign, six one-off upcycled TommyXRomeo polos will also be auctioned via the online auction site Catawiki, with proceeds donated to the FMA (Fashion Minority Alliance) a non-profit focused on collaborating with fashion and industry stakeholders to build and foster a more diverse, balanced, and inclusive industry that advances meaningful and long-term equity and advancement for BIPOC and Historically Marginalized creative talent.       Tommy Hilfiger’s mission is to become a leading sustainable designer lifestyle company that “Wastes Nothing and Welcomes All”, through how it creates its product, manages its operations, and connects with its communities and stakeholders.

Samsøe Samsøe presents the new Spring & Summer 2022 collection ‘Chasing the sun’

Fashion Week ‘Chasing the Sun’ is the name of the Spring Summer 2022 collection by Samsøe Samsøe. It o ers an optimistic view of the world, and delves into the sense of never ending travels and adventures: the dreamingand hoping of brighter days ahead and afeeling of positivity within us. It attempts to capture that euphoric and inevitable desire tobreak free and explore.     The collection takes us through a time lapse, where we touch base with the inspiring and de ning 70’s and 80’s as well as take a small peek into 90’s fashion. The overall feeling and mood of the collection is retro, yet elevated. Contemporary prints, nostalgic patterns, updated jacquards and nuances in silhouettes give us a revival but which is very much in line with the trends of the new 20’s.     ‘The collection, for me, is all about explorations, travels and freedom. The freedom we’ve all missed the past year, and the travels we will be able to do again so soon. The new relationships we will gain, and the chasing of newness we’ve all longed for! I really wanted to bring across the sense of positivity and the yearning for summer, and with the colours and silhouettes of this collection, I believe we achieved that.’ – Gitte Wetter, Intermediate Head of Design.     This season, menswear recharges with the playfulness of the 70’s, portrayed in both prints and colourways. Pants are wide legged, andthe collars of shirts are slightly elongated.Jacquards and embroidered shirting add to the tactility, as do heavy knitted, loose tted cardigans. Sun-bleached colourways add to the dreamy, road trippy feel of the collection. To balance out short sleeve shirts in crisp cottons, lyocell and hemp, there is impeccably tailored suiting in wool and structured twill, both with a nod to the classic 80’s silhouettes.     Womenswear tells a story of a power woman on the move. A sense of youth, optimism and e ortlessness are concepts that describe this collection. A new colour palette is introduced; turquoise, lime greens and bright fuchsias contrast with hues of bronzed browns, dirty beige and dusty blues. Here, we see more of a time travel from 70’ssilhouettes in crochet dresses and shirtingand 80’s structured shoulders in sexy, belted suit jackets to 90’s references in leather wrap skirts in rich brown tones.     For SS22, Samsøe Samsøe has reached a level of 80,81% more responsibly sourced materials for the styles in the collection: a big step closer to their 2024 goal of reaching 100%responsible materials across all collections. ‘Chasing the Sun’ is the name of the Spring Summer 2022 collection by Samsøe Samsøe.

Louis Vuitton launches the new fragrance  "Spell on You"

Louis Vuitton launches the new fragrance "Spell on You"

Fragrances A sensual prolongation of the travelling spirit that has been the essence of the House since its founding, Parfums Louis Vuitton now unveils a new women’s fragrance inspired by the very rst of all journeys: emotion. In the original sense of the term: that which puts us in motion. Composed in Grasse by Louis Vuitton Master Perfumer, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, Spell On You captures the excitement of lovers’ games. The delicious tension that arises when two lovers are drawn to one another like magnets.     The Game of Love.     Seeking. Finding. Surrendering, then shying away... and starting all over again. As a playground, amorous passion is an utter thrill. At once romantic and mischievous, carnal and jubilant, the latest perfume by Louis Vuitton captures the ambivalence of intimacy, wavering between sensuality and complicity. An ecstatic betwixt and between!     A Magical Impression.     A passionate creator, Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud dedicates an irresistibly seductive fragrance trail to the woman who is “both romantic and a conqueror.” It is a scent that becomes one with its wearer, granting her a powerful force of attraction. Olfactory enchantment and a magnetic, haunting allure, as its name suggests. Spell On You: three heady syllables compose an unforgettable refrain. Like an invitation one simply can’t refuse. A hypnotic fragrance, Spell On You concentrates its charm right down to its colour: a simultaneously innocent and provocative pink, at once fresh and sensual. From start to finish, Louis Vuitton’s new women’s fragrance plays the card of seduction right on the line between spontaneity and sophistication.     An Ode to Iris.     Where there is love, there are flowers. Fascinated by their symbolism as much as the variety of their olfactory nuances, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud has made flowers his favourite creative territory. Today, he weaves the seduction of Spell On You around one of the most precious among them: the iris. A flower whose transformation into essences requires six years of patience. Three years underground, to develop all the facets of the scent contained in its rhizomes, and then three more years of drying before extraction: five tons are required to obtain one kilogram of absolute... “It’s like the finest varietal in a grand cru,” concludes the Master Perfumer, who marvels at its unrivalled appeal.     Available as of 2nd September 2021 at select Louis Vuitton stores and from louisvuitton.com #LVParfums #louisvuitton A sensual prolongation of the travelling spirit that has been the essence of the House since its founding, Parfums Louis Vuitton now unveils a new women’s fragrance inspired by the very rst of all journeys: emotion.

Company flagship stores in Milan, Amsterdam, London and Riccione starting from August 5th.     50.cpcompany.com

"Hurricane" for the cowboys and cowgirls of the modern age

Accessories Hurricane comes from the heart. A 100% Portuguese hand-made brand was born with the idea of creating something disruptive. A western vibe mixed with the coolness of a daily big city life.     With proposals for women, men and children, the brand launched 4 different models: Sally, the mythical Fedora model, Harvey, the typical cowboy hat with a touch of irreverence, Laura, a tribute to the Portuguese historical hat, and Delta, a model highlihted by its flicked edge.     HURRICANE is not a conventional project and each model has a special detail such as the animal print, metals, ropes and other particularities designed by the founders and crafted by portuguese artisans. All the models have an inner strap that allows the perfect fit to the head shape. However, there's the possibility of making a customized hat according to the client's request.     Hurricane also has a sustainable move & plastic-free. The packaging is made of paper and the hat itself is made of 100% biodegradable and natural wool.     All the hats are designed by the founders, Tânia and Francisco, with great attention to detail introducing their love for fashion and experience into the western vibe adapted to people’s life.     The founders became partners on the first day they’ve met. They realized they shared exactly the same vision so they got immediately aligned and started working on this with their love for hats and fashion, giving birth to HURRICANE, the brand with the hats they couldn’t find on the market.       After all, why be a soft wind when you can choose a Hurricane?     http://hurricane.pt Hurricane comes from the heart.

LV Fall Louis Vuitton Men's Collection by Virgil Abloh Fall 2021

Men For Fall 2021 Louis Vuitton presents a Menswear capsule collection designed for urbanites who favour a formal silhouette with subtle twists of nonchalance and chic.     Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2021 Collection draws inspiration from a 1914greetings card written by Gaston-Louis Vuitton. It featured an expressionist bouquet of owers against a checkerboard background, which looked like Vuitton might have scratched it out himself. The handwritten inscription “Marque L. Vuitton déposée” has even been subtly incorporated into the print.     This motif – straight out of the Maison’s archives – has come full circle to be right back on trend this season. Versions of it in charcoal grey, camel and lime are applied to technical nylon outerwear, incorporated into double-faced wool coats, printed onto cotton shirts and t-shirts, and coordinated with footwear and accessories such as neck pendants, belts and hats.   Here the multicolour tie-dye – a reinterpretation of one of Virgil Abloh’s earliest prints and a key feature of Louis Vuittonmenswear – is transformed into Monogram Sunset and used to pattern jackets and long or short-sleeved shirts. Alongside 3D-printed leather jackets, hoodies, cargo pants and denim Bermuda shorts, this makes up an ideal capsule collection for this Fall. The garments are complemented by a selection of leather pieces including the popular Keepall, the must-have Sirius briefcase and the Trio Messenger bag – all available with this new checkerboard pattern in turquoise or charcoal grey. As for the Keepall, the Soft Trunk, the Horizon suitcase and small leather goods, these come in amboyant Monogram Sunset canvas.     The Fall capsule collection will be available in Louis Vuitton stores from 4 September 2021.     For Fall 2021 Louis Vuitton presents a Menswear capsule collection designed for urbanites who favour a formal silhouette with subtle twists of nonchalance and chic.     Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2021 Collection draws inspiration from a 1914greetings card written by Gaston-Louis Vuitton.
