Acne Studios presents its Women’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection

Fashion Week Voluminous yet shaped silhouettes, soft and worn fabrics, contrasting moments of sweetness and elegant refinement; this collection is a visual evolution moving from a dreamscape into an awakened reality.   “I was thinking about what happens when we emerge from isolation, the same but also somehow different. This collection is a dreamscape that begins with soft pastel colours, before awakening into monochromatic clarity, which is an ode to the white or black clothes worn for rituals in our life cycle, like weddings and funerals.” says Jonny Johansson, creative director of Acne Studios.     Oversized wrap coats in floral printed wool are like dressing gowns seen out of the house, the oversized buckle heightening the volume play. Knits have the effect of a long-loved teddy bear, the hems left ragged and cardigan buttonings purposefully off-kilter. Pyjamas have been hand- bleached and overdyed, appearing well-worn. Leather trenches and jackets have brushed seams, creating a denim-like aesthetic; an ode to the brand’s roots. Knits, robes and dresses are key, with a focus on wrapping, draping and ruching. Colours travel from floral pastels and pale shades through neutrals, before arriving at monochromatic blacks and whites.     Draping is a reoccurring design feature. A long-sleeved linen dress has panels of rib jersey running down both sides, from cuff to hem. Some garments are voluminous with sudden cinching at the waist. Meanwhile, another linen dress hugs the body more tightly with fabric gaps to reveal the undergarment. The body is mostly covered, but there are moments of emergence, which is evidence of the experimental draping throughout the collection. Oversized and open- structure cable knits show the skin beneath, in either tops or skirts, followed by monochromatic looks which mirror each other: a long-sleeve white dress in a fine and supple leather, buttoned from rollneck to hem with open extended cuffs; a black sleeveless gown in viscose with a hidden internal construction. Silk jackets in black or white are lightly padded and effortlessly oversized.     Ceramic animals by artist, Apollinaria Broche are carried like bags, as if an imaginary friend from childhood. Miniature versions appear attached to chokers or earrings. Shearling hats cocoon the head, while chunky handknitted mittens add to the homespun feeling. Collapsible suede bags are in geometric shapes, such as boxes and flat circles. There’s also a structured handbag which is distorted into a new warped shape. Clog boots are cut from cowhide, while leather boots have seams on the outside, both thigh-high and ankle. Leather pumps have a high stiletto heel, while strappy sandals are worn over thick socks for full comfort.     The Women’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection will be available in all Acne Studios stores and on acnestudios.com.

KATE MOSS AGENCY LAUNCHES LIMITED-EDITION BUTTERFLY COLLECTION IN SUPPORT OF SAVE THE CHILDREN

Fashion Kate Moss Agency announces its second range from KMA Studio, The Butterfly Collection, in partnership with Save the Children. The limited-edition collection launches on February 25th and includes a t-shirt and hoodie featuring an abstract butterfly print as captured by wildlife photographer Finlay Pitt.      The 100 per cent organic cotton t-shirts and hoodies, priced at £45 and £90 respectively, were inspired by Kate’s fascination of butterflies and her belief in the Butterfly Effect, whereby seemingly minor events can have large and significant consequences.      Kate Moss said: “Having recently launched KMA Studio the team and I wanted to create more sustainable merchandise which also benefits others. Inspired by the ‘Butterfly Effect’ theory of small change having a big effect and my love of butterflies, we designed this custom, abstract print. Partnering with Save The Children on a limited run of hoodies and t-shirts means we can donate to a greater cause through our small-scale project.”     KMA Studio will be donating £5 from each item sold to Save the Children to ensure that disadvantaged children around the world can stay safe and healthy to keep learning. Save the Children works in more than 100 countries, including the UK, to help young people reach their full potential and build a better future.     Caroline Whatley, Chair of Global Partnerships at Save the Children said: “We’re so excited to be partnering with KMA Studio on this beautiful limited-edition collection. Purchasing a t-shirt or hoodie from the range will mean we’re able to raise money to help change the lives of children around the world. As the Coronavirus crisis takes its toll on our most vulnerable children both here in the UK and globally, partnerships like this are more important than ever.”   The blue-green abstract print derives from photographer Finlay Pitt’s microscopic image of a butterfly wing which he captured as part of a recent photography project at university.      Finlay Pitt, photographer and conservationist, said: “I am incredibly proud to be involved in this collection for KMA Studio and Save the Children. Since I was five years old, I’ve dreamt of being a wildlife photographer. More recently I’ve been dedicating my photography to conservation work and I hope this partnership can both shed light and alleviate some of the struggles children face around the world.”      All KMA Studio products are ethically sourced and made from 100 per cent organic cotton certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard. Working closely with a factory in Tiruppur, India, to source the raw materials, KMA Studio have produced a small collection with a focus on sustainability and minimising environmental impact at all stages.       Products will be sent in recyclable packaging; swing tags have been made from recycled waste material collected during production and KMA Studio have taken all available steps to ensure the highest ethical standards throughout the process.     All products are available from KMAStudio.com from 25th February.    'Wear & Share' on social media using @SaveChildrenUK @katemossagency  #ButterflySeries Kate Moss Agency announces its second range from KMA Studio, The Butterfly Collection, in partnership with Save the Children.

Giorgio Armani presents men's Autumn/Winter 21/22 Collection

Giorgio Armani presents men's Autumn/Winter 21/22 Collection

Fashion Week Giorgio Armani has always been fascinated by the psychology of dressing. He explores the nuances and passages in a very natural way. It is no coincidence that his style was immortalised in a film scene showing a man in front of a wardrobe, intent on making a choice. The new collection is just that: a structured wardrobe, a collection of garments that, when updated, span the decades in rapid transitions. They are clothes that each man can wear and mix and match as he wishes, to express and portray himself. There is also a touch of eclecticism in conceiving new volumes and applications: jackets are soft and flowing like shirts, coats are supple and enveloping, sweaters adhere to the body and are punctuated with geometric patterns. The way surfaces are used is also eclectic: geometric patchworks of velvet and wool, or brightly coloured floral patterns make each garment unique. The journey into a world of typically Armanian ease follows a chromatic path that switches between natural hues, deep blues and black, alongside flashes of leather, brightened by velvet. This is the portrait of a self-assured, nonchalant man, who can dispense with a jacket in the evening, wearing only a velvet shirt.

The idea is expressed in a key look of an oversized coat—a mashup of different styles and completed with a built-in check shirt—wide legged pants and thick soled moccasins styled on Patrick Cox’s iconic Wannabe design from the 90s in a special collaboration for the collection.      Starry nights in lit-up cities inspire glamorous feminine detailing on masculine pieces. A cowboy shirt has sequin embellishments, a chain fringe details a blazer.  The new collection includes a collaboration with Patrick Cox, the shoe designer behind the iconic Wannabe loafer and a teenage friend of Dean and Dan Caten.     Restyling the Wannabe’s famed square-toe form, first launched in the 90s, the Wanna-D2 comes in different styles: a heeled loafer with a mini platform, the same style in a high boot and thigh boot, and a lower ankle boot version with a chunky heel and a front strap with D hardware.   Bodysuits and dresses embroidered with poetry are paired with sporty details, color-blocked nylon wide legged pants with elasticated ankles and a long tailored jacket, or loose denim pants with paint splatters in a camouflage pattern.

CHANEL PRESENTS THE SPRING & SUMMER 2021 READY-TO-WEAR CAMPAIGN

Fashion A very special emotion arises when CHANEL welcomes a long-time friend. Charlotte Casiraghi, the new CHANEL ambassador and spokesperson, illuminates the campaign for the Spring-Summer 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection, shot in the legendary principality of Monaco by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.      “The story around Charlotte’s life in Monaco started with the cinematic idea of day for night”, explain the Dutch photography duo. “Staging the set ups in similar locations both at night and during the day was the starting point for this series in which Charlotte fluctuates between dream and reality. Is she real, we wonder, or is she an apparition wandering in a place she might not fully belong to?” An ode to the seventh art where enchantment competes with fascination. “Charlotte has a mysterious quality, a push-pull duality that emphasizes our play on the merging of reality and dream,” they add.      Day and night, in black and white or in colour, by a swimming pool or in the privacy of a bedroom, Charlotte Casiraghi embodies, in this mythical Monaco, a specific idea of cinema that inspired Virginie Viard for the collection.      Certain words come to mind when contemplating these silhouettes, like the flashbulbs on a red carpet. Starting with glamour: a long, sleeveless black tweed gilet decorated with bows worn over flowing trousers, a suit in iridescent black tweed with a satin collar and cuffs, a chiffon ensemble embroidered with sequins, a leather jacket and skirt, a black strapless dress in tweed and chiffon. Then sophistication: a long dress in pleated chiffon printed with the letters "CHANEL", a pink and navy blue dress belted like a cardigan, an ecru dress in cotton tweed emphasised with braid, a long dress in crêpe de Chine printed with small flowers. Finally, joy and colour: a red cashmere embroidered sweater over a pair of capri pants, a striped tweed dress adorned with jewelled buttons.      The CHANEL Spring-Summer 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection will be in boutiques from March 2nd 2021.      #CHANELSpringSummer A very special emotion arises when CHANEL welcomes a long-time friend.

BURBERRY REVEALS ITS SPRING/SUMMER 2021 CAMPAIGN

BURBERRY REVEALS ITS SPRING/SUMMER 2021 CAMPAIGN

Fashion ‘For the Spring/Summer 2021 show, I wanted to create this incredible experience bringing together fashion, art, music, technology, live performance and to then explore the dialogue they have with each other. I have always been inspired by the concept of duality, so it was amazing to see the unique energy and dynamic tension that was found in the fusion of all these worlds. This campaign is all about continuing that examination of different perspectives, contrasting the rawness of the internal environment with the ever-blooming nature of the outdoors.’ Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer     Today, Burberry reveals its Spring/Summer 2021 campaign, bringing together contrasting worlds in an exploration of differingperspectives and viewpoints.     Photographed by Juergen Teller, the campaign presents a dichotomy between images: two different realms, indoors and outdoors, nature and fashion. Images captured within the scenography of the Spring/Summer 2021 show, with models immersed in nature, are juxtaposed with classical raw studio shots. Through these opposing lenses, the collection is presented from different viewpoints, transforming with the environment around them. Playing upon the overarching theme of the collection, rooted in a modern love story between a mermaid and a shark, the Spring/Summer 2021 campaign continues to expand on one of Burberry’s signature house codes: duality – constantly exploring the fusion of romanticism with innovation, form with function and past with future.     The Spring/Summer 2021 collection remasters the iconic emblems and hallmarks of the luxury fashion house – its character, nature and unique British DNA – with a modern free energy. A spirit of rebellion re-energising tradition. Natural canvas, denim and industrial, rubberised fabrications combine with delicate chiffon and crystal embroideries – streetwear meets classic.     Alongside Juergen Teller, Riccardo gathered a team of iconic talent including stylist Katy England, Burberry Global Beauty Director Isamaya Ffrench and hair stylist Gary Gill. The cast includes models He Cong, Tyler Forbes, Khali Ghani, Kayako Higuchi, Tashi Kwaiye, Reece Nelson, Yiorgos Paraskevas, Aylah Peterson, Claus Royo, Liv Walter, Anok Yai. ‘For the Spring/Summer 2021 show, I wanted to create this incredible experience bringing together fashion, art, music, technology, live performance and to then explore the dialogue they have with each other. I have always been inspired by the concept of duality, so it was amazing to see the unique energy and dynamic tension that was found in the fusion of all these worlds. This campaign is all about continuing that examination of different perspectives, contrasting the rawness of the internal environment with the ever-blooming nature of the outdoors.’ Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer     Today, Burberry reveals its Spring/Summer 2021 campaign, bringing together contrasting worlds in an exploration of differingperspectives and viewpoints.     Photographed by Juergen Teller, the campaign presents a dichotomy between images: two different realms, indoors and outdoors, nature and fashion. Images captured within the scenography of the Spring/Summer 2021 show, with models immersed in nature, are juxtaposed with classical raw studio shots.
