PRADA LINEA ROSSA FALL & WINTER 2020 THE CAMPAIGN

Fashion Dynamic, modern, new. The Prada Linea Rossa Fall/Winter 2020 campaign celebrates the new active collection with an exceptional cast of young and international talents from different parts of the world - globally in uential gures, cultural game-changers. This Linea Rossa campaign features Chinese actress and dancer Jin Chen, South-Korean musician and producer Chanyeol Park, and American actress and change agent Yara Shahidi.     The singular nature of each of their talents is matched via the pairing of these Linea Rossa personas with different photographers: each creates an image re ective of the individual, a window into their lives. Supporting diverse local artistic realities, the three talents were shot separately, each in their own countries, by local photographers: Jin Chen was portrayed by Leslie Zhang, Chanyeol Park by Jung Wook Mok, and Yara Shahidi by Renell Medrano.   Reinterpreting the meaning of the line that is the emblem of Prada Linea Rossa, the concept of the Fall/Winter 2020 campaign is the timeline, a lineage of the self. Like Linea Rossa, it represents evolution, progress, pushing forwards - a line of life.   This season, the red line is used to narrate the three talent’s lines of work, which re ect their multifaceted careers and unique back-stories, the histories and encounters that have brought them to today.   In the connection of each to contemporary society, to the experience of the now, and their focus and drive to pioneer and to excel, this trio of campaign talents are united through attitude with each other, and with Linea Rossa, with its ethos of modern, high-performance clothes engineered to the needs of dynamic life today. They share a line of thought.     Credits: Photography and video by: Leslie Zhang for Jin Chen Jung Wook Mok for Chanyeol Park Renell Medrano for Yara Shahidi Creative direction: Ferdinando Verderi Dynamic, modern, new.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: BREITLING’S CHRONOMAT FOR WOMEN

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: BREITLING’S CHRONOMAT FOR WOMEN

Watches Lights, camera, double debut: we’re thrilled to present Breitling’s new Spotlight Squad as we launch our line of Chronomat 36 and 32 watches – for women of purpose, action, and style.     “Our inspiration for this new collection is the Breitling woman herself, as represented in our #SQUADONAMISSION campaign: a woman of purpose, action, and style who’s at the top of her game,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern.     Some people have mastered the art of not only shining in the spotlight, but also shining their light on others and inspiring change in the world. Three of them are on our Spotlight Squad: Charlize Theron, Misty Copeland, and Yao Chen. These extraordinary entertainers are at the top of their game, and have shattered the stereo­ types clinging to their gender and respective fields. Originally from South Africa, Oscar­winner Charlize Theron has proven her versatility in numerous roles and genres. In 2004, she won the Academy Award for Best Actress after playing a serial killer in Monster. In 2019, she starred in and co­produced the dramaBombshell, for which she was nominated for another Academy Award. In 2007, dancer Misty Copeland was only the second African­American woman to be promoted to soloist with American Ballet Theatre (ABT); in 2015, she was the first African­American woman to become a princi­ pal dancer. That year, Time magazine named her one of the world’s 100 most influential people. Chinese TV and film actress Yao Chen has won many awards, including the Audience Choice category of China’s Golden Eagle Award (2010) and Best Actress at the Busan International Film Festival (2016, Asian Content). In 2019, she won the Golden Mulberry Award for Lifetime Achievement at the Far East Film Festival.     A Passion for More:   In addition to excelling on screen and on stage, these three are not afraid to take control of their own story­ lines while trying to improve the lives of others. Indeed, they form a tenacious squad of women who stand up for their beliefs and the issues closest to their hearts. Breitling CEO Georges Kern adds: “Who better than Charlize Theron, Misty Copeland, and Yao Chen to turn the spotlight on major global causes as they redefine what it means to be a strong woman? Three leading stars known for being fierce and pushing boundaries. What binds them together is the Spotlight Squad and Breitling’s dedication to change, diversity, and reshap­ ing the world we live in.” “And now – dedicated to women – the new Chronomat 36 and 32 collection embodies flair, confidence, and an active lifestyle.”     Ready for any Mission:   With its commitment to core values and innovation, Breitling is also about pushing boundaries, whether it is high above the clouds, on the ground, or deep below the ocean waves. As versatile and attractive as the Spotlight Squad, its latest collection – the Chronomat 36 and 32 series – takes women wherever they want to go. Breitling’s first­ever Chronomat designed for women is suitable for any mission. While its roots are in the 1980s, this forward­looking timepiece is dedicated to innovative women of today who are reshaping atti­ tudes and challenging stereotypes. Sporty yet elegant, this modern­retro­inspired watch easily takes its wearer from business meeting to the beach – and everywhere in between. It symbolizes competence and effortless style.     Dutch Ambassadors:   Igone de Jongh trained at the National Ballet Academy in Amsterdam and The Royal Ballet School in London. Subsequently, she is promoted to principal soloist at the age of 24. Trust, perseverance and optimism are her core values. Even when she ended up wrong at twelve with the risk of never being able to dance again, she has not given up on her dream. What followed was an impressive career, which, thanks to her unique way of movement, brought about packed houses and standing ovations.   “For me, time is being in the moment: honest, sincere. Train and practice until my coordination and timing are right - are one. Then you become weightless, as if time stood still. Moments that make everything worthwhile. ”     In addition to being an actress and film maker, Hanna Verboom is also a social entrepreneur. Hanna is the founder of Get It Done (2007), an organization that inspires and activates people to work for others. At the end of 2014, she founded Cinetree, an on-demand film platform that, together with experts, makes a selection of inspiring films and documentaries every month. In addition to her own businesses, Hanna is committed to local, sustainable brands and social initiatives. Big dreams, small steps, this is her entrepreneurial mantra.   “Time is everything, it's the one thing we can't hold on to. It's the one thing we can't control or buy. That is why I consciously choose to only do things that I really believe in. ”     Yootha Wong-Loi-Sing is an actress and singer. She starred in LOVE IS_, a series for the Oprah Winfrey Network, and in REALLY LOVE, for which she received a prestigious acting award at the American festival SXSW. Growth is the great motivator in her life. During the filming of the lead role in 'How expensive was the sugar', an impressive time arose in which she could use her great talent and learned the importance of gathering knowledge. She received a nomination for a Golden Calf for this role.   “For me, time is surrender, showing myself my most vulnerable side. Time is endless and has no beginning and no end. It's about how much you enjoyed something, with your heart, the purest compass. ” Lights, camera, double debut: we’re thrilled to present Breitling’s new Spotlight Squad as we launch our line of Chronomat 36 and 32 watches – for women of purpose, action, and style.     “Our inspiration for this new collection is the Breitling woman herself, as represented in our #SQUADONAMISSION campaign: a woman of purpose, action, and style who’s at the top of her game,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern.     Some people have mastered the art of not only shining in the spotlight, but also shining their light on others and inspiring change in the world.

Louis Vuitton reveals its new brand campaign

Louis Vuitton reveals its new brand campaign

Fashion Louis Vuitton reveals its new brand campaign, a perennial voyage transcending the times, an emotional journey across landscapes and borders, an innocent curiosity for what lies both beyond and within. At Louis Vuitton, travel goes beyond discovering a physical destination, it is equally a process of self-discovery, a personal journey. Through an entirely local production team, dreamlike settings photographed by Viviane Sassen come to life as the core values of the House are translated into imagery: the Art of Travel, dreams and escapism, transmission from generation to generation, and continuous optimism.   Imagination takes flight to Iceland, the Land of Fire and Ice, an island of light and darkness with mesmerising landscapes. Through contrasting scenery, from the island’s southern black sand beaches and mystical peninsulas to the northern dramatic glacier lakes and small lava caves, children appear, as if in a reverie. Beds of ice and snow lay softly on background plains, with shy rays of light daring their way through the misty skies. The high standing mountains mirror themselves in the infinite pool of water, calmly sectioning off colours of blue and grey.   The inner child is set free towards a dream, gazing upon the bright future with a sense of innocence and joy. And as in a child’s world, anything is possible: hat boxes become musical tambourines, Alzer trunks magically morph into an Eiffel Tower, the surreal sized keys to trunk locks parade along the island’s coastline. A sense of freedom with the lightness of tomorrow, a voyage to a land within.   Photographer Viviane Sassen takes her lens on an emotional journey beyond Iceland’s ethereal landscapes for the House’s 2020 brand campaign. Icelandic school children venture across the island’s impressive nature, playfully exploring the horizons of the island. Since the 1980s, globetrotting photographers have captured the iconic Monogram and galleries of personality portraits in everchanging scenery, shot in unexpected corners of the world, each artist creating powerful imagery still relevant today.     Louis Vuitton reveals its new brand campaign, a perennial voyage transcending the times, an emotional journey across landscapes and borders, an innocent curiosity for what lies both beyond and within.

GUCCI IS PLEASED TO PRESENT THE EPILOGUE CAMPAIGN

GUCCI IS PLEASED TO PRESENT THE EPILOGUE CAMPAIGN

Fashion Last July, Creative Director Alessandro Michele opened the final chapter of a three-part tale of subversion – one of shifting the gaze and questioning the rules, roles and liturgies that have come to define fashion as we know it. On that occasion, a twelve-hour live stream framed a narrative feature, revealing to the outside world what usually lies behind closed curtains. Here, throughout the course of one day, the Gucci design team became the hectic cast of models, captured on camera while patiently posing on set.   That intense shooting day paved the way to the campaign that is now presented. Set within two contrasting Roman locations, the grandiose, late-Mannerist Palazzo Sacchetti and the distressed, graffiti-covered Campo Boario area, the pictures bring together the Gucci design team, which worked with Alessandro Michele on the very same collection they are wearing, under a poetic play of juxtapositions and perspectives.    In an open dialogue between the external decadence and the personal extroversion of these two seemingly irreconcilable spaces, these usually anonymous faces come and go between their on-set tasks in the palazzo and the ramshackle squat. By doing so, they present a theatrical allegory that reconciles the real and the surreal, reflecting on the relationship between fashion fictional imagery and the reality of its productions.    In the words of Creative Director Alessandro Michele: “I brought together different things, which represent the messy beauty that I have always sought: the chaos of beauty. What happens to the relation between reality and fiction when prying eyes sneak into the mechanisms of the production of an image? What happens to fashion, when the true goes back to being just a moment of the false? Breaking the spell that forces my collaborators to passionately work on clothes they later have to abandon, I asked the team to wear them. And so we did a self-sufficient job, all inside our house, mixing things we had already done with things we were about to – overcoming the schemes of the time coherently with my idea of The Epilogue, the final resolution of a future that is largely present”.    Shot by Minneapolis-based photographer Alec Soth and filmed by Roman directors Damiano and Fabio D’Innocenzo, winners of the 2020 Berlin International Film Festival's Silver Bear for Best Screenplay, the campaign leads to the conclusion of the narrative arc that began in February with the An Unrepeatable Ritual show, when Alessandro Michele brought the backstage preparations to the centre stage. The tale continued in May, with the release of The Ritual campaign, a radical experimentation that blurred the lines between models and authors in search of a spontaneous, unpredicted idea of beauty. Now, following July’s live-streamed presentation, this fairy tale eventually finds its Epilogue.   CREDITS: Creative Director: Alessandro Michele Art Director: Christopher Simmonds Photographer: Alec Soth Film Directors: Damiano and Fabio D’Innocenzo Locations: Palazzo Sacchetti and Campo Boario Last July, Creative Director Alessandro Michele opened the final chapter of a three-part tale of subversion – one of shifting the gaze and questioning the rules, roles and liturgies that have come to define fashion as we know it. On that occasion, a twelve-hour live stream framed a narrative feature, revealing to the outside world what usually lies behind closed curtains. Here, throughout the course of one day, the Gucci design team became the hectic cast of models, captured on camera while patiently posing on set.   That intense shooting day paved the way to the campaign that is now presented. Set within two contrasting Roman locations, the grandiose, late-Mannerist Palazzo Sacchetti and the distressed, graffiti-covered Campo Boario area, the pictures bring together the Gucci design team, which worked with Alessandro Michele on the very same collection they are wearing, under a poetic play of juxtapositions and perspectives.    In an open dialogue between the external decadence and the personal extroversion of these two seemingly irreconcilable spaces, these usually anonymous faces come and go between their on-set tasks in the palazzo and the ramshackle squat. By doing so, they present a theatrical allegory that reconciles the real and the surreal, reflecting on the relationship between fashion fictional imagery and the reality of its productions.    In the words of Creative Director Alessandro Michele: “I brought together different things, which represent the messy beauty that I have always sought: the chaos of beauty. What happens to the relation between reality and fiction when prying eyes sneak into the mechanisms of the production of an image? What happens to fashion, when the true goes back to being just a moment of the false? Breaking the spell that forces my collaborators to passionately work on clothes they later have to abandon, I asked the team to wear them. And so we did a self-sufficient job, all inside our house, mixing things we had already done with things we were about to – overcoming the schemes of the time coherently with my idea of The Epilogue, the final resolution of a future that is largely present”.    Shot by Minneapolis-based photographer Alec Soth and filmed by Roman directors Damiano and Fabio D’Innocenzo, winners of the 2020 Berlin International Film Festival's Silver Bear for Best Screenplay, the campaign leads to the conclusion of the narrative arc that began in February with the An Unrepeatable Ritual show, when Alessandro Michele brought the backstage preparations to the centre stage.
