Presenting the Spring & Summer collection of Lardini

Fashion A king goes to a famous rishi in the forest. “Tell me, what is the nature of the self?” he asks. The old man looks at him and doesn’t answer. The king repeats the question. The rishidoesn’t answer. The king asks again, but the rishi remains silent. The king gets angry and shouts: “I ask and you don’t answer!” “I answered you three times, but you’re not listening,” the rishi says calmly. “The nature of the self is silence.” Tiziano Terzani     The silence that animates and inspires the new Lardini SS21 collection is the silence of nature: the feelings of peace, strength and intensity conveyed by a bamboo forestthrough which the sun barely lters, the purity of owing water and the light, intense colours of the owers and birds depicted in oriental art.   The colours are captured and expressed throughout the collection, which mainly features neutral tones accompanied by shades of pink, red and yellow typical ofowers, leaves and feathers, mainly used for knitwear, shirts and accessories.   This season’s new garments, which embrace the theme of sustainability, include aduster with a twill weave and an unlined glen plaid jacket, both made of certi ed eco-friendly “Rexclusive” fabric obtained through mechanical recovery of plastic bottles,100% made in Italy.   They are accompanied by special garments with exclusive characteristics, such as the Solaro suit made of tencel, linen and cotton, woven in reverse on the trousers and with a straight thread on the jacket, a technique that makes it possible to obtain a completely unique effect; the unlined, unconstructed jacket with peak lapels and a regimental pattern on a satin base weave, which can be created on both sides of the same fabric; the printed blazer with bonded fabric features a drapery effect on theoutside and illustrations depicting sartorial patterns on the inside.   The new “Club Lardini” range, which this season replaces the Sartoria line, is based on bold colour contrasts that emphasize the strong character that distinguishes thecollections season after season. The main patterns used include silk and cashmere houndstooth, pinstripes and glen plaid.   The collection is enhanced by special garments such as the safari jacket made ofstretch cotton hand-printed – using a paper-to-fabric transfer technique – with a two-tone marbled design, an aviator jacket in aged velour-effect suede with nappa   leather piping in the same colour, and a reversible blue wool jersey trench coat withan inner tone-on-tone cashmere and silk wool check pattern.   A relaxed t-shirt sweater with a bowling collar has joined the knitwear, featuring openwork stitch details and front pockets that make this garment truly unique. Lardini’s knitted jacket remains a must-have, available not only in classic cotton and linen, but also in stitch patterns and designs that embellish the garment.   The essential “Luxor” trousers are made of high-quality, natural bres, such as rustic ne wool canvas or various types of cotton and stretch linen with “old shades”that produce a vintage effect; the Oslo model, wide at the bottom and uniquely comfortable, now in its second season, embraces a palette inspired by earth colours, such as tobacco, or by exotic animals, as in the burnt pink, turquoise and carmineversions.   “In Nature everything speaks, despite its apparent silence.” Hazrat Inayat Khan.     These words, borrowed from the Indian author, were a great inspiration in the choice of exclusive prints, illustrations that recall nature and the animal world, which areclearly visible in four versions on the T-shirts, on the half-sleeve shirt with a bowling collar made of l coupé cotton poplin with a dragon y design, and on the linen version with a bamboo pattern.   The new Denim project items, especially with strong washes with worn effects andvintage-effect “Colony” dyes, are used for several models: the double-breasted jacket with a crumpled look, the cargo trousers and the 4-pocket jacket with metal buttons, all with an inner dragon y print.   The collection is completed by accessories that characterise the Total Look range: suede shoes in soft colours with contrasting tassels; fabric, suede or leather sneakers with the Lardini logo; sophisticated linen jacquard ties and pure silk scarfs and pocketsquares.   TEAM CREDITS:  Photography by FILIP KOLUDROVIC  Styling by GINO GURRIERI  Hair and make-up by WOUT PHILIPPO using Madára Cosmetics en Redken  Casting TIMOTEJ LETONJA   Models: CHELSEY WEIMAR & SANNE DE VRIES at Elite, WILLIAM LOS at The Troopers, BART GREIN  Fashion assistants: MAGDALENA ROE en MICHAEL GEERTZEN  A king goes to a famous rishi in the forest. “Tell me, what is the nature of the self?” he asks. The old man looks at him and doesn’t answer.

The collection is part of the Tommy for Lifeprogram, a pioneering circular business model that takes pre-owned TOMMY HILFIGER and TOMMY JEANS pieces as well as damaged items from retail operations to repair for re-sale, or remix into unique new styles. The collection will be available on tommyforlife.com in the Netherlands and France starting May 20.   The Remixed collection was designed using TOMMY HILFIGER and TOMMY JEANS styles that were damaged, pre-owned and traded in by consumers, and could not be repaired. Each one-of-a-kind style is made up of different garment pieces, designed by a dedicated team ofTOMMY HILFIGER designers, technicians and product developers. Styles were then handcrafted by local tailors, including The Renewal Workshop, 2020 Tommy Hilfiger Fashion Frontier Challenge winner - A Beautiful Mess -, and the PVH Product Innovation Lab. The limited-edition Remixed collection features nine styles, with a total of 250 pieces available, including:   The draped Polo dress, created using three menswear Polos; The color-block sweatshirt featuring bold layering from original styles, inspired by the Tommy archives; The patchwork jeans, redesigned to include soft contrast patchworking and pocket details.     Tommy for Life is tied to Tommy Hilfiger’s sustainability vision to create fashion that Wastes Nothing and Welcomes All. With 24 targets towards 2030, Tommy Hilfiger is taking a bold approach to environmental and social sustainability, focused on circularity and inclusivity. The design approach taken for the Remixed collection follows Tommy Hilfiger’s ambition to make products that are fully circular and that can be part of a sustainable loop by 2030. Tommy Hilfiger’s vision is powered by PVH Corp.’s Forward Fashion strategy, a set of 15 priorities designed to reduce negative impacts to zero, increase positive impacts to 100% and improve over 1 million lives across its value chain.   To participate in the Tommy for Life program, consumers in France and the Netherlands are invited to trade-in their pre-loved TOMMY HILFIGER and TOMMY JEANS items at TOMMY HILFIGER and TOMMY JEANS stores or send them via mail in exchange for discount vouchers.

In partnership with The Renewal Workshop – the leading provider of circular solutions for apparel and textile brands – Tommy Hilfiger will sort, clean and repair all collected items.  Items that cannot be restored will be reinvented into unique styles as part of future Remixed collections. Those that cannot be remixed will be recycled into yarns or repurposed, for instance into insulation, or donated via our philanthropic arm, Tommy Cares. Tommy Hilfiger plans to launch Tommy for Life in more European markets later in 2021.     To purchase product, trade in TOMMY HILFIGER products and learn more about the program, visit tommyforlife.com.

LV TRAINER LOUIS VUITTON MEN’S COLLECTION BY VIRGIL ABLOH SPRING-SUMMER 2021

LV TRAINER LOUIS VUITTON MEN’S COLLECTION BY VIRGIL ABLOH SPRING-SUMMER 2021

Accessories First presented during Virgil Abloh’s debut Spring-Summer 2019 show for Louis Vuitton, this season the LV TRAINER inspires new style variations in keeping with its exacting standards: each pair requires at least seven hours of manufacturing.     Drawing inspiration from vintage basketball sneakers, held dear by Virgil Abloh, and set on a technical rubber sole injected with gel and encrusted with contrasting Monogram flowers, this new version will add a lively touch to all the memories summer 2021 has in store for you. The House’s identity stands out once again with the LV signature on the tongue and side and the #54 signature on the back, recalling 1854, the year Louis Vuitton was founded. As always, the Monogram pattern is in the spotlight, whether reinvented on denim or embossed on grained calfskin, nubuck or smooth leather. But with its blend of materials and patterns, each LV Trainer boasts its own identity in a rainbow of vivid hues, symbolising all the colours of a summer under the sun of optimism, from dawn to sunset.     Burgundy lit up by sunny orange, blue enhanced with black accents, green contrasted with yellow details... The colours are galvanised on a grained and smooth leather design. The collection also showcases the essential white leather sneaker, adorned with the hand-written Louis Vuitton signature, and the denim canvas one, this time beige-tinted, alongside a reflective silver leather model.     This season, three versions in suede leather and denim take on neon pink and yellow shades, echoing the ready-to-wear line. One of them is entirely covered with pink rhinestones, to attract light and style at every step. While the white leather sneaker is bound to last, each colour and style variation will be subject to a limited drop launch.      Lastly, a pair of sandals, available in identical neon shades, adds the finishing touch to the collection. Fitted with the same sole as the sneaker, it is light and supple, the perfect variation of a model designed to be worn at any time of the day.

IRO COLLABORATES WITH M.COHEN JEWELRY

IRO COLLABORATES WITH M.COHEN JEWELRY

Jewelry This season IRO launches a female capsule collection together with the LA- based men’s jeweler Maor Cohen. Known for his eclectic menswear pieces (among his clients are Johnny Depp, Chris Hemsworth and Matt Damon), this marks the jewelry designer’s first foray into women’s. A perfect match for the French womenswear brand, set to tap into a previously unexplored niche: men’s inspired jewelry for women.     “Ever since starting our brand, we have created for a woman who knows who she is, who, despite being very feminine, loves to play up her androgynous side, so asking a men’s jeweler to develop a collection with us seemed perfec- tly natural”.     Inspired by nature, textures, architecture, culture, people and past travels, the capsule collection, consisting of 74 separate pieces, has an authentic bohemian vibe with a touch of 70s Americana. Afghani jade, labradorite, turquoise, garnet and emerald are juggled together with Italian corals, Tahitian black pearls, finely cut Australian opals and African vinyl trade beads directly sourced from tribes in Kenya. Mismatched elements and trinkets are strung onto knotted Japanese Mokuba cord, or dangle from strands of silver and snake chains. Stand-out pieces include a weighty diamond-cut 925 sterling silver cone on a delicate strand of faceted emerald stones, or an articulated statement ring adorned with a giant rotating mother of pearl.     While the pieces can be worn separately, they are meant to be layered, and even combined with other pieces. Jewelry is very personal. It’s all about crea- ting your own identity, being inspired and wearing it how you want. Maor Cohen mixes all kinds of elements, colors, materials and metals, inviting the wearer to play around with a look to make it feel authentic, natural and nonchalant - like it has grown with you over the years.”     “Working on this collection together was like combining my drums with their guitar and their flute to create our very own music. It was such an amazing and inspiring collaboration,” recounts Cohen, the self-taught Israeli designer. “It has been like finding a new family. The whole process was built on creativity, trust, sincerity and growing together. Complete magic!”     Every piece is designed and handmade in LA. The collection is set to launch for SS21 and will be available at all IRO flagship stores and selected boutiques worldwide. Prices start at $230.

VERSACE LAUNCHES LA VACANZA MINI CAMPAIGN

VERSACE LAUNCHES LA VACANZA MINI CAMPAIGN

Fashion Photographed by Camille Summers-Valli   Need a vacation? So do we.   Allow Versace to transport you to the crystal-clear waters and blue skies of Liguria with the brand’s latest mini campaign.     “With this shoot I wanted to create something fun that captures the spirit of a vacation. We all miss travel. We miss the excitement of being somewhere different, of meeting with friends and sharing experiences. These images are about enjoying life and feeling free, they encapsulate that summertime feeling of endless possibilities.” - Donatella Versace   A sequence of imagery and film capture candid moments of a very Versace vacation. Think sun-kissed models, glamourous seaside locations and iconic summer fashion. The brand’s Greca motif is ever-present throughout the series, ensuring the Versace DNA appears front and center. Shot by Camille Summers-Valli, the images highlight an offering of beach essentials, from swimsuits and silk shirts to travel bags and pool towels.   A tongue-in-cheek video diary sees the models recalling how they spent their summer, but flashbacks reveal they’re not quite telling the truth. Playful and optimistic, the series hopes to spread a little Versace glamour this vacation season.   #VersaceLaVacanza   Credits: Chief Creative Officer: Donatella Versace Photographer: Camille Summers-Valli Casting Director: Piergiorgio Del Moro Stylist: Allegra V Beck Hair Stylist: Patti Bussa Make-Up Artist: Luca Cianciolo Talent: Evie Harris, Blésnya Minher, Rozanne Verduin, Simone Bricchi, Lucas Barski, Loic Namigandet Photographed by Camille Summers-Valli   Need a vacation?

DEUTSCHE TELEKOM LAUNCHES PROJECT FUTUREPROOF IN COLLABORATION WITH SEVEN TIME GRAMMY AWARD WINNER BILLIE EILISH TO SUPPORT GEN Z IN EXPLORING FUTURE CAREERS

Things to do More than 1 in 2 UK & European Gen Z are concerned about their post-pandemic futures. Deutsche Telekom’s Project Futureproof aims to stand by Gen Z and leverage digital optimism to help enable a successful future for the next generation. It is a support platform that has been developed to demonstrate the huge potential of Gen Z and help inspire them to identify future careers, as well as uncover skills they do not know they have.     Project Futureproof has been developed in collaboration with both Gen Z contributors and a diverse group of professional skills & employability experts. It aims to connect users to peer-to-peer inspiration & support. It has been endorsed by seven-time GRAMMY award winner Billie Eilish.     “The future feels uncertain”, says Billie Eilish, “but I’m always inspired by what our generation is able to achieve in the face of so many different challenges.”     In a post-pandemic world, there are many uncertainties the next generation are facing; culturally, socially & economically. Research released today by Deutsche Telekom shows 61% of UK & European Gen Z are anxious about their future job and career prospects. 54% are unsure what careers will exist in the future, with 43% saying they are unsure if they have the qualities they need to succeed.     “Gen Z are stepping into a world of work that will have been fundamentally changed by both the COVID-19 pandemic and digital transformation.” explains Ulrich Klenke, Chief Brand Officer at Deutsche Telekom. “We believe that it is our collective responsibility to help them navigate the opportunities & challenges they face. We want to show them that if they have a passion, they have a future.”     At the heart of Project Futureproof is a free-to-access digital tool that helps Gen Z to better understand their abilities and how these are connected to future career opportunities. It uses established RIASEC (vocational personality) modelling to help to connect users with potential future career clusters. The tool helps Gen Z to see how their passions, skills, talents and personality are fundamental to helping shape their future journey and how they can best use these personal attributes as part of future careers. Unlike existing services, the tool takes a uniquely Gen Z perspective, identifying key trends & changes in the world of work, delivering insights through a personalised, gamified experience.     Alongside the tool, a ‘Project Futureproof’ online hub also features helpful resources where Deutsche Telekom experts share insights on how to write CVs, prepare for job interviews and improve your social media profile. As Europe’s most valuable Telecommunications brand, Deutsche Telekom is dedicated to supporting young people with a broad ongoing range of initiatives including dual student & apprenticeship programmes, careers & employability resources, tailored youth tariffs and localised initiatives.     Project Futureproof launches today with an international Gen Z engagement campaign and an optimistic short film that invites young people to choose utopia over dystopia and trust that their passion will support them. Created by Saatchi & Saatchi, London, the film has a message of digital optimism hinting at the career opportunities that will naturally evolve from this generations’ current passions. Set in 2021, a series of sci-fi glitches offers a group of Gen Z a vision into the future, showing a glimpse into how they (and the world around them) have been changed by following their passions. Directed by Rollo Jackson, the series of vignettes of the future harness a spirit of hope and possibility with a playful, but contemporary, nod to sci-fi. Backed by a version of Billie Eilish’s ‘My Future’, the superstar also cameos in the future world. The campaign will be featured across a range of Gen Z focused digital and social media channels including Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, TikTok and Spotify. Watch the film here.     In 2020, Deutsche Telekom partnered with Billie Eilish to shine a light on the power and potential of connected technology in the hands of young people. Now more than ever, facilitating equal participation in social, economic and cultural life is a key focus for the brand. Project Futureproof is the next phase of its mission to support this generation, and what they do next.     To find out more visit: www.telekom.com/projectfutureproof More than 1 in 2 UK & European Gen Z are concerned about their post-pandemic futures.

Supperclub & New Wave launch a brand new high-end streetwear label: SUPPER

Supperclub & New Wave launch a brand new high-end streetwear label: SUPPER

Fashion In 2018 the Amsterdam-based Mitchell Rahder, Dyllan ter Hoeven and Cameron Cornelia started a new project: New Wave. They founded a brand within a segment of streetwear in which they saw that there was no offer yet, it turned out to be a success. Based on the same shared passion for creating and the ambition to build something from scratch, SUPPER was founded together with Supperclub’s Joeri Salet. Visual artist Roos Dessing was quickly added to this inspired collective and immediately knew her starting point: the collection had to offer a handle in the journey to yourself. It had to be a reflection of time.     With the current zeitgeist in mind, Roos designed the prints, texts and symbols of the collection, which is structured in such a way that everyone can identify with the different layers of the collection, both in terms of style and price range. The collection starts with the BASIC collection, leisure inspired items subtly provided with the SUPPER logo and evolves, through the use of symbolism, texts and prints that refer to the growth that we as human beings go through, through to the Alignment collection. In the latter, the vision of the label and its designer really come together.     SUPPER’s collections are a reflection of the here and now instead of the season, the present time we are in at that moment, a reflection of today. It’s a high-end streetwear label, a unit, a oneness called: SUPPER.      SUPPER is available as of now at www.supperclothing.comand starting June 1st in SUPPER’s Pop-Up store at Berenstraat 22 in Amsterdam.

GIVENCHY INTRODUCES THE NEW MARSHMALLOW SLIDES

Accessories Givenchy is pleased to present the revolutionary new Marshmallow sandal styles for women and men.     First revealed with the designer’s teaser capsule for Spring-Summer 2021, two instantly recognizable Marshmallowdesigns revisit the proportions of a silhouette with sculptural flair, representing a touchstone in the new era Matthew M. Williams is defining at the Parisian heritage house.     Building on the Creative Director’s love for exceptional, distinctive footwear, the Marshmallow fuses innovation with extreme lightness and comfort. Molded in an ultra- modern //EVA// thermoplastic resin, these monochrome slides push classic design into futuristic territory with two newshapes — a women’s wedge and a universal flat — that also star in Givenchy’s spring advertising campaign.     The assertive yet minimalist women’s wedge combines a flattering, elongated silhouette with a cushioned sole discreetly embossed with the House’s 4G emblem for a sporty urban attitude.     With its equally architectural lines and chunky, ergonomicsole, the universal Marshmallow flat slide marks the House’s first gender-inclusive footwear design and brings a playful, carefree attitude to relaxed and formal looks alike.     The Marshmallow wedge and slides are available in-store.
