Fall-Winter 2020/21 Haute Couture collection Photographed and captured by Mikael Jansson

Fashion Week “I was thinking about a punk princess coming out of ‘Le Palace’ at dawn,” reveals Virginie Viard. “With a taffeta dress, big hair, feathers and lots of jewellery. This collection is more inspired by Karl Lagerfeld than Gabrielle Chanel. Karl would go to ‘Le Palace’, he would accompany these very sophisticated and very dressed up women, who were very eccentric too.”   While the Spring-Summer 2020 Haute Couture collection was clearly influenced by the simplicity and rigour of the abbey at Aubazine, where Gabrielle Chanel had been placed as a child, the thirty looks of the Fall-Winter 2020/21 Haute Couture collection are marked by a desire for shimmering opulence and jewelry. Some are even accompanied with jewels from the CHANEL High Jewelry collections.   “I like working like this, going in the opposite direction of what I did last time. I wanted complexity, sophistication.”   All of CHANEL’s embroidery partners, including the Métiers d’art Lesage and Montex, as well as Lemarié and Goossens have contributed to the precious tweeds embellished with sequins, strass, stones and beads. A diamond-like braiding adorns the ink black trouser suits. Short dresses with cinched waists and corolla skirts rustle alongside long dresses with a very Grand Siècle allure and the noble authority of heroines escaping from 19th century tableaux.   “It’s true that I thought about paintings, but it was more German paintings,” says Virginie Viard. “I really had Karl’s world in mind…”   Black and anthracite grey tonalities are illuminated with flashes of pink. Painted laces enrich bolero jackets along with tweeds made of silver streaked ribbon; a jacket with an entirely smocked waist is worn over tapered boot-trousers in black suede, the ultimate sign of an ultra-rock romanticism. “For me, Haute Couture is romantic by its very essence. There is so much love in each one of these silhouettes.”   See more on chanel.com   #CHANELHauteCouture “I was thinking about a punk princess coming out of ‘Le Palace’ at dawn,” reveals Virginie Viard. “With a taffeta dress, big hair, feathers and lots of jewellery.

RALPH & RUSSO PRESENT FIRST COUTURE COLLECTION IN DIGITAL FORMAT FOR AUTUMN-WINTER 2020/2021

Fashion Week With the global coronavirus pandemic presenting unprecedented changes to the industry and the safety of all brand supporters at heart, Ralph & Russo, in partnership with the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, bring their Autumn-Winter 2020/2021 couture collection to the global stage in the form of a unique digital experience. Illustrating the journey behind this season, the experience showcases the way in which this collection was brought to life, through a number of digitised looks on our custom brand avatar, several pieces made in our atelier, and the balance of the offering created in sketch form.     Reflecting on the far-reaching beauty of our natural world and the digitally charged future, Creative Director Tamara Ralph presents a collection infused with wonder. Encouraging all to take refuge during this difficult time in the world of fantasy, to look beyond and to dream, this season all are invited to partake in a special experience as we unveil our Autumn-Winter 2020/2021 couture collection through the lens of technology.     Abundant with vibrant tones of yellow-gold and sky blue, hues of lavender and fuchsia pink, the collection harkens to the natural palette of our planet, citing seven of the globe’s most unique and awe-inspiring locations, and enhancing silhouettes with intricate floral details. From three-dimensional organza blooms to swathes of floral taffeta and tweed - each distorted, blurred like water colours, and digitally printed – the collection defies singularity, bridging the gap between technology and the elements.     Uniquely presented against the seven contemporary wonders of the world, this season is brought to life by an equally international individual; our very own avatar and muse, Hauli. Named in traditional Swahili after strength and power, Hauli is at once rooted in African origins and a reflection of womankind; of the beautiful and inspiring women bringing courage and positive change to all four corners of the world.     In combining two seemingly opposed dimensions, Tamara Ralph not only presents the brand’s first ever digital show experience, but continues to represent art and the world in its purest form; as truly knowing no bounds.

Moose Knuckles launches second round of 'Moose Knuckles gives a F*ck' global fundraising initiative

Fashion International luxury outerwear brand Moose Knuckles is working with visual artists from around the world to create and sell one-of-a-kind jackets as part of a global initiative to raise funds for those suffering during the pandemic. The project is the latest in a series of global fundraising initiatives by Moose Knuckles to support the ongoing pandemic, including donating profits from online sales and creating masks for hospital workers.     With each artist using a white Moose Knuckles Lead Rider jacket as their canvas, the finished one-of-a-kind wearable artworks from round one’s NYC artists, has completely sold out. Next up are Paris and Milan.    The finished one-of-a-kind wearable artworks from the participating Paris Artists are now available to purchase through the MKGAF landing page on mooseknucklescanada.com and will retail for EU600 each, while the Milan Artists’ works will be available to purchase starting from July 7th.     The program will generate funds for the following local hospitals that have also been supported through net profit donations from the brand’s ecommerce sales during the pandemic: Mount Sinai Hospital, New York Le Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM), Montreal Jewish General Hospital Foundation, Montreal Les Hôpitaux de Paris (Paris’ Hospitals Corporation) San Raffaele Hospital, Milan Artists are currently being chosen in California and Canada to participate in the Moose Knuckles Gives a F**ck campaign and will be announced in the coming weeks.     #MKGAF   The YARD Agency - known for its ingenuity in connecting with the urban generation through its work across music, sports, and fashion–has helped the brand to identify 10 artists from different areas of Paris and will include creators such as Seas5, Kader Diaby, and Taqwa Bintali.     Acapulco - an international communication and brand strategy agency for luxury, fashion, lifestyle, art, culture and design industry leaders based in Milan - has selected 11 of the best local artists such as Giorgia Andreazza, RiffBlast, and Yuri Sata x Solomostry.     Just like New York City, they customized the Lead Rider Jacket, a top-of-the-line raincoat perfect for maneuvering through rainy spring weather, with the only creative guideline being that they embody “positivity in the face of the pandemic.” International luxury outerwear brand Moose Knuckles is working with visual artists from around the world to create and sell one-of-a-kind jackets as part of a global initiative to raise funds for those suffering during the pandemic.

Transmotion by Iris Van Herpen

Fashion Week Iris van Herpen presents the short film entitled 'Transmotion' in collaboration with Carice van Houten, as part of the digital Paris Haute Couture week on July 6 , 2020.   For many, the year 2020 will go down in history books to mark a poignant chapter in their lives. Amidst tension and turmoil, silence has been brewing; clearing the ground for a seed to be planted, an opportunity to incite new growth. In the right conditions, positive change can emerge to welcome first breath.     Iris van Herpen unveils the 'Transmotion' dress in the eponymous short film, featuring mesmeric muse and on-screen maven Carice van Houten. Like most, the past few months have seen Iris van Herpen operating closer to home. Paying homage to the brand's Dutch roots, the homegrown actress serves as both inspiration and collaborator, starring in the film that references the illusionary style of Dutch graphic artist Maurits Cornelis Escher. The term transmotion not only depicts the process of change from one state, form, style or place to another, it is also the visionary perceptions of the seasons and the visual scenes of motion in art and literature. In parallel to Iris van Herpen's drive to visualise the invisible, her quest to question reality and urge to explore the realms of impossibility, the project aims to narrate the process that ushers change, to materialise an unconscious state of meditation.     The 'Transmotion' dress radiates in a diaphanous bloom of white silk organza, translucent layers pleated within the confines of an undulating form, tracing the fluid outline of the creation. Contrasted against the frailty of sheer petals, black branches of duchess satin were laser-cut, hand-stitched and form the central roots of the garment. Threads of inspiration for the graphic yet organic extensions derive from the intricate art of Ruth Asawa. This geometric lattice recalls humankind's inclination to tame nature. Beneath the surface, the branching also reveals the synonymity of mycorrhizal networks (the Wood Wide Web) and the symbiotic nature within human communities. Like fronds frozen in time, crystalline filaments sprout from the heart of the dress. Portraying delicate new life, black seed-like crystals punctuate the tip of each stamen-like strand.     The concept of the creation stems from the notion of growth and regeneration. The seemingly simple seed is the embodiment of life and the potential that comes with it. A seed embedded upside down in dirt still sees the seedling growing the right way up. The dress follows symmetry in both its axis and without context, indiscernible which way is up or down. Motion and fluidity involved in the formation of tessellations highlight the capacity to shift between negatives and positives. Amidst an era when polarising ideologies are heightened, the work reflects upon the nature of perception.     Optics is the study of sight and the behaviour of light, or the properties of transmission, deflection and radiation. Optics is also defined as the way an event or course of action is perceived by the public. Refracted light illuminates the film, igniting a movement for growth. Resembling iridescent flames, pulsating lights and dappled shadows caress Carice van Houten. The facets of perception oscillate between blur and clarity.     Intertwining craftsmanship and innovation, the project is rooted in dichotomy and duality. In line with Iris van Herpen's continuous pursuit to traverse the organic and the synthetic, the film explores the relationship between structure and fluidity. Within nature and societal terms, exist a paradox in how chaos can forge harmony, how destruction can enable regeneration. The process of metamorphosis at its peak is muddled and turbulent. This pertinence extends to the interdependency of the exterior and the interior. In recent times, individuals and communities alike have taken the form of digits on weights and measures. The connection between vigour of physicality and soundness of mind have become especially apparent; mirrored in highlighting how minute actions of individuals are integral to sustain the fabric of society. With bated breath, scales tip between fragility and resilience.     A breath can fan the winds of change, spurring the dispersal of seeds. The film sheds light on the polarisation within our society and the need to sow a catalyst for change. 'Transmotion' follows the process of a germinating first seed, that through nurture, may break ground and bloom into a better world.

DIOR PRESENTS ITS AUTUMN-WINTER 2020-2021 HAUTE COUTURE COLLECTION

Fashion Week The autumn-winter 2020-2021 haute couture collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri was exclusively revealed online, at the heart of a magical film entitled Le Mythe Dior, directed especially for the House by Matteo Garrone, the emblematic Italian filmmaker who recently signed Pinocchio.     The Atelier’s virtuoso miniature creations come to life as if by magic, traveling through a dreamlike, fantasy universe. Embodying a veritable alchemy of the Dior dream, mythology and the silver screen, this moment of enchantment pays homage to the Théâtre de la mode, a unique event initiated in 1945 to promote French couture around the world, and Paris, more than ever, as the unrivaled capital of haute couture. Luxury being above all about the beauty of gesture, imbued with emotion and joie de vivre, it was essential and symbolic for the Creative Director of Dior women’s collections to in turn perpetuate and reinvent, during these unprecedented times, a spirit of freedom and renewal in the name of the creative energy passed down by Monsieur Dior.      It represents a major feat for Dior’s petites mains, who gamely rose to the challenge of executing miniature tailoring, involving an infinitely rigorous and passionate dialogue with a range of precious savoir-faire skills. The spellbinding collection highlights the noble character of the artisanal poetry that sculpted, shaped, embroidered and sublimated these exceptional creations. In creating these thirty-seven captivating silhouettes, Maria Grazia Chiuri wished to celebrate the work and the journeys of five indomitable, magnificently inspiring figures of the Surrealist movement: Lee Miller, Dora Maar, Dorothea Tanning, Leonora Carrington and Jacqueline Lamba. Each one a visionary, these audacious personalities transcended their role as “muse” by affirming their vocations as artists of dazzling talent.

Cartier introduces their Pasha community

Cartier introduces their Pasha community

Jewelry Rami Malek, Troye Sivan, Willow Smith, Maisie Williams and Jackson Wang: five authentic journeys, five accomplished talents captured by the New York fashion photographer Craig McDean.     With its distinctive codes and extraordinary design, the Pasha watch has always been for those who take a wider view of the world. This breadth of vision is shared by a new generation of talents who have cultivated their own uniqueness, like Maisie Williams, the English actress involved in various collaborative projects, or actor Rami Malek who is drawn to complex and captivating roles that don’t conform to Hollywood’s traditional standards. Personalities like the artists Troye Sivan or Willow Smith who rely on courage to assert themselves and have faith in their creativity and versatility; or in the desire to unite and connect young people, as shown by the success of the Chinese singer Jackson Wang.     “Since its creation in the 1980s, the Pasha watch has embodied a certain idea of success directly linked to its extroverted design, power and graphic nonconformism. It is as edgy as ever and in tune with today's new generation of creators. These new Pasha ambassadors owe their success to their differences, creativity, connection, multidisciplinary talents and generosity.” Arnaud Carrez, International Marketing and Communications Director of Cartier International     The Pasha de Cartier watch launches in China on 1st July and 4th September around the world. Available in 35 mm and 41 mm in steel, gold, vibrant diamond-set and skeleton movement versions. Rami Malek, Troye Sivan, Willow Smith, Maisie Williams and Jackson Wang: five authentic journeys, five accomplished talents captured by the New York fashion photographer Craig McDean.     With its distinctive codes and extraordinary design, the Pasha watch has always been for those who take a wider view of the world. This breadth of vision is shared by a new generation of talents who have cultivated their own uniqueness, like Maisie Williams, the English actress involved in various collaborative projects, or actor Rami Malek who is drawn to complex and captivating roles that don’t conform to Hollywood’s traditional standards.

Daniëlle Cathari: The Krul, First Memories of the Flourish of Approval

Fashion   With the Daniëlle Cathari Spring/Summer ‘20 collection, Cathari introduced her collaboration with Dutch artist Nazif Lopulissa, which was focused on the ‘Krul’, standing for the “flourish or approval”. The ‘Krul’, which is a typical Dutch symbol used when doing something right or to check something off the list, was inspired and drawn from Cathari’s personal experiences and moments within.     When starting with this concept, Cathari came across the works of Nazif, got inspired and felt related to his choice of colors, materials and shapes; it was an instant match. The collaboration resulted in not only artworks for the clothing, it also marked the first multidisciplinary product for the brand with the ‘Krul’ art object.     To highlight the ‘Krul’, Daniëlle Cathari collaborated with Dutch director Daan van Citters to bring the object into visualization through a conceptual video. Told through different stories by individuals in their personal environments, the video focuses on a nostalgic feeling and the first memories of the typical Dutch symbol.     The multifunctional ‘Krul’ art object is available to purchase at daniellecathari.com.     Credits: Creative Director: Daniëlle Cathari Director: Daan van Citters DOP: Milan van Dril Music: Joris Titawano Artist collaborator: Nazif Lopulissa   Special thanks to Britta Flinterman, Gijs Bouwens, Vera van Erp, Boudine Ottevanger and Malou Wüstefeld.       watch the full video here: https://vimeo.com/431749774     With the Daniëlle Cathari Spring/Summer ‘20 collection, Cathari introduced her collaboration with Dutch artist Nazif Lopulissa, which was focused on the ‘Krul’, standing for the “flourish or approval”.
