FASTEN YOUR SEATBELT! CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN INVITES YOU ON LOUBI AIRWAYS TO DISCOVER HIS FALL-WINTER 2021 WOMEN’S & MEN’S COLLECTIONS

Accessories Good morning passengers, this is you captain speaking. Welcome aboard this CL1991 flight from Paris to Loubiville.     To unveil his Fall-Winter 2021 collections, Christian Louboutin imagined a one-of-a-kind digital presentation inspired by his infinite love of travel, whether physical or imaginary. Following state-of-the-art immersive experiences on Drest and Zepeto’splatforms, the House explores 3D technology this season. A fully interactive airplane was conceived to enjoy an exclusive moment discovering Christian Louboutin’s collections via a dreamy air journey.     Rendez-vous at the iconic TWA Terminal in JFK Airport in New York, a boldly futuristic space designed by famous architect Eero Saarinen, perfectly embodying the glamorous Golden Age of air travel. The Loubicrew, a cast of dynamic figures, cross the space scanned from head to toe by the passengers waiting to board. A stop is still required at the security check. Red alert! The Xray scanner is on overload! The pilot’s giant Loubi Airways Kypipouch hides the new Caracaba bag and ChristianLouboutin’s new fragrance, the Loubishark & Louis Spikes sneakers trigger the alarm and the security officer is enamored by the Blaster bag.     Bags cleared? Let’s board the Loubiplane, a space entirely redesigned with the House’s iconic details, from the red flooring to the seats customised with a bespoke print and seatbelts featuring the Loubi Airways logo. Imagined as a complete immersion into Christian Louboutin’s universe, the airplane journey is a succession of nine interactive animations featuring the key themes of the collection.     But safety first, the aircrew reinvents the traditional security video in an entertaining and stylish way. The tone is set! For more instructions, look at the card in front of your seat for in-flight styling tips highlighting this season’s lug sole range including sandals, boots and loafers, blending Christian Louboutin’s elegance with a contemporary vibe.     Need to flex your legs? Have a walk and discover the two customised airflight trolleys presenting the house’s latest fragrances and lipstick collections and a selection of cozy shoes and accessories that can be worn indoors and outdoors. The designer chose materials such as faux shearling for pool slides and iridescent velvet to maximize the comfort while keeping it luxurious and stylish.     Before going back to your seat, take a moment to check out the luggage in the lounge area which showcases ChristianLouboutin’s newest creations featuring an exclusive, playful and fun Oh Xtian! print made from a collage of many inspirations such as fashion magazines, retro posters, advertisements, vintage floral photographs and movie scenes.     In case you’d like to add sparkle to your journey, have a look in the overhead compartments: an Xray animation showcases this season’s new crystal-incrusted heels, introduced on retro styles in bright colors and a typical French Vichy pattern.     The airplane encounters fashion turbulence? Relax and enjoy some entertainment with the Loubi Inflight Magazine introducing Christian Louboutin’s rock & swing inspired group featuring signature hardware and spike details, applied on loafers, slippers and boots. More food for thought? The Loubi Times newspaper is at your disposal. And don’t forget to read some of the latest gossip of the House in OMG Magazine!     One last drink before landing? Head to the bar area at the back of the plane where a fortune telling tarot station will introduce you to an exclusive print decorating iconic shoes while also serving as the inspiration for this season’s Caracaba bag.     To all passengers, we just landed at Loubiville Airport. On behalf of Loubi Airways and the entire crew, we wish you all a pleasant stay.     DIGITAL EXPERIENCE HERE: https://loubiairways.christianlouboutin.com Good morning passengers, this is you captain speaking.

Coperni, la nuit. Fall & Winter 2021 Collection

Fashion Week Coperni has always given priority to the sun, to daylight, to clear and distinct ideas. But with the sun cometh the night. She shows the world di erently – guiding us as always but also urging in a new time, a time to welcome in the unpredictable. Whether it’s mid- night or midday, the night is our window to see what is possible.       70x participants depart from their homes in 35x electric cars. Each vehicle will navigate the streets of Paris before arriving in the great hall of the Accord Arena in Bercy, the 12th arrondissement of the City of Light. The cars and their passengers will move into the darkness of the empty hall – enough space for over 20,000 in normal times. The choreo- graphy takes place after the vehicles have moved in to formation, becoming an integral part of the catwalk. The car radios turn on and announce the start of lming. Each indi- vidual set of headlights will light up as the rst model passes by, allowing participants to view the collection through their car window.     The Winter 21 collection is an exploration into the complexity and the mystery of night- time as we know it: sometimes pitch-black, sometimes dotted with stars, sometimes il- luminated by the moon. The night-time of celebration, of seduction and of plunging into the unknown is opposed to the nighttime of sleep, of resting our bodies and allowing dreams to take over our mind and our soul.     Frank and dynamic cuts on classic silhouettes let us glimpse the skin lying beneath. The shoulders are raised, the arms are slender - ready to enter in to the darkness. Sensuality arises from a play on zipped drapintg. Second skin mesh opposes the moving fringes. Bags in the shape of a padlock suggest something locked away in darkness. Maxima- lised forms lead us towards calmness, reconciliation and time for ourselves. Softness protects the body and light becomes therapy.     This night will be an experience.

INTRODUCING THE NINAMOUNAH Fall & Winter 2021 COLLECTION

INTRODUCING THE NINAMOUNAH Fall & Winter 2021 COLLECTION

Fashion Week Ninamounah launches today “Seduce Me”, their proposal for Fall Winter 2021. The collection, presented with an audiovisual piece in runway show format, marks a new chapter in the path of the Amsterdam based brand, debuting at Paris Fashion Week this season.     Continuing with the narrative line defined by creative director and designer Ninamounah Langestraat, Seduce Me receives inspiration from the natural world, taking biology as the starting point for the conception of the ideas that help shape the pieces in the collection. “Seduce Me” explores hypnotisingmating rituals, stimulating the viewers animalistic side and translating the aesthetics of these complex animal behaviours into garments a various and rich range of silhouettes, textures and movements.     Exaggerated cuts and oversized tailoring takes inspiration from the sexual mimicry of the animal kingdom. The defense mechanism of certain species protecting themselves from more dominant individuals is parallel to the human experience of wearing garments as armor.      Contrasting the suppleness of velvet and the discomfort of vinyl tells the story of seduction: both romantic and aggressive.  The velvety antlers of male deers is the perfect paradigm seen in nature. During mating season the velvet on their antlers shed and they use their antlers to fight for male dominance. The deception of sensuality and violence in nature,  as seen in snake trails (a sign of either mating or conflict), translates into the hypnotic, undulating seams in the recurring garments.      The urgency of red punctuates the neutral palette as a semiotic conversation between the aggressiveness and seduction it represents in both nature and the human-made world. The neutral palette is a reflection of the unarmed state and the innocence of living beings before they are ruthlessly hunted down.     This is the second season Ninamounah collaborates with artist Stef Van Looveren, with whom the brand has developed a revisited line of accessoriesstarring their already signature bags depicting human male and female gonads in a wide range of colours, from bubblegum pink to metallic gold.

Hermès presents the new Fall & Winter 2021 collection

Fashion Week Infused with radiant mystery, power, an aura, cavalières, if not Amazons, stride forth in the lines of this new collection. If asked, they might not even recall these last few months, preferring to remember more uncomplicated times. For some women, being stuck in a rut, remaining motionless, are purely abstract ideas, for they are all about movement. It is urgent now to live again, to venture forth into the unknown, to gain a new lease of life. It is a time of rebuilding: so much remains to be explored, beginning with womanhood, a concept that haschanged quite a lot these past few years. Time ies, which is surely a sign that we need to reinvent ourselves.     This collection is an expression of the desire to explore the sensuality of new mythologies. The checkered pattern works like a painting that gets right to the point, with a gesture as pure and simple as adorning the human form with rectangles. Clothes as suitable for nightlife as for everyday life; opposites no longeropposed; contradictions y out the window as classi cations disappearinto the play of fabrics and pleats. A clou Médor opens and closes a clasp; a suit is cut parka-style, ignoring the rules of tailoring. The padded anorak makes an appearance, and though there are pants, they are cycling pants.     In counterpoint, trim such as one nds on cashmere blankets.And long jackets, coats and ponchos with integrated scarves supplying the protection one needs to feel strong, without ever hindering movement. Something to wear while taking the present in stride.     How can we put on a fashion show in today’s world? When times are challenging, we must challenge our own habits. Let us feel free to connect with other cities, other cultures. Let us attempt to be creative together—albeit from a distance. Let us dare to do what we have always done with passion: initiate a dialogue with other art forms. Let us innovate; let us produce what can only be called a triptych. More than a fashion show: a living performance, in three acts. At the heart of this three-part performance is a socially distanced Paris fashion show at the Garde républicaine, broadcast live on various media. The “prologue” takes place not in Paris but in New York, at the Armory Show, where choreographer Madeline Hollander will start things off with a free interpretation of the movements gleaned from Nadège Vanhée-Cybulski’s collection. At the close of the Paris show it’ll be over to Shanghai, where dancers under the direction of choreographer Gu Jiani will conclude the triptych, injecting renewed energy and strength into the collection.     Breathing life into clothes by making them our own. Dancing a collection to infuse other bodies, other cities, with movement—even after the show is over. Might those three moments in different parts of the world conjure up a new woman? Who knows, so swift is the pace of life...     And nally, to preserve this utopian project (what could be more utopian than fashion?), we asked Sébastien Lifshitz—a genre-crossing lmmaker steeped in modern dance and fashion—to lm the last stages of the triptych’s conception.     From New York to Paris, from Paris to Shanghai, three different ways of breathing life into clothes through movement. Three singularly different approaches, creating a sequence. What more satisfying way, in 2021, to inhabit the world together?     Infused with radiant mystery, power, an aura, cavalières, if not Amazons, stride forth in the lines of this new collection.

ISABEL MARANT presents the new Fall & Winter 2021 collection

Fashion Week A vision of the past or a projection into the future? The Isabel Marant Fall-Winter 2021 collection translates this ambiguity into silhouettes, colors and prints.     The folk and libertarian spirit of the 60’s driven by Jimmy Hendrix or Janis Joplin meets the techno impulse of the Gabberscene, a subculture that took the nineties by storm. Psychedelic multicolor oral patterns are layered with an electric blue iridescent vinyl fabric, while Texan boots are worn with oversized sportswear-inspired pieces, adorned with colored yokes.     As a journey across genres and eras, this new collection celebrates craftsmanship and cultural heritage through theevocation of memories, narrated by guipure tops and dresses, shearling boleros and embellished belts. This contrastbetween raw materials and precious details gives the wardrobe its versatile character - from day to night, masculine andfeminine together at the same time.     This season, a video shot in the outskirts of Paris, along the brutalist and hypnotic volutes of an open-air building, servesas an introduction to the collection. The exalted soundtrack by Gabber Eleganza, a symbiotic combination of folk tones and techno rhythms, echoes within its concrete walls. An ode to the long-lost parties.     MODELS: Adut Akech, Mica Argañaraz, Loli Bahia, Malick Bodian, He Cong, Leon Dame, Anna Ewers, Freek Iven, Birgit Kos, Klara Kristin, Rebecca Leigh, Malika Louback, Xu Meen, Blésnya Minher, Quinn Mora, Lola Nicon, Miriam Sánchez, Rianne Van Rompaey A vision of the past or a projection into the future?

VERSACE PRESENTS THE FALL & WINTER 2021 COLLECTION

Fashion Week “I have realized that this is the future, the new way of communicating collections.  Models are like actors, they bring the designs to life, just like when a performer portrays a character. During the filming of this show I saw how important it is to give the models time to “feel” the clothes they wear on the runway. Despite living in a digital era of immediacy, taking this time is crucial to form a genuine connection. This is what the present and future look like to me.”  - Donatella Versace      CONTEMPORARY CODES   The iconic Greca motif is reinvented for Fall-Winter 2021 as a dynamic and immersive 3D maze that feels like you can step right into it. The new Versace La Greca code features the Greek Key along with the Versace logo in various sizes and color combinations. The geometric pattern has sharp angles, clean lines and a strong palette that represents power and self-confidence.     SMALL SILHOUETTES    In womenswear the silhouettes are reduced in volume with rounded shoulders, cinched waists and A-line skirts. The trousers are cropped and there’s a cleanness that lets La Greca do the talking. The new code features on modern daywear, signature metal mesh dresses, sensual eveningwear, bold sheepskin outerwear and is embroidered on denim. Harnesses are created that cross the chest like armor and add sharp detail through embellishment and contrasting shades.       INTIMATE LINES     Men’s cuts are slim and refined with a twist. The tailoring hugs the body with sensual intimacy. La Greca features in different ways from all-over jacquard suits sometimes mixed with lurex thread, to small rubber patches on the chest like soccer badges. The fabrics jolt from shiny vinyl to matte wool.      REBEL SPIRIT    FW21 also introduces a graffiti Medusa smiley that champions the brand’s sense of humor and rebellious character. Considered a symbol of celebration, freedom and dancefloor communities, it is framed by La Greca borders and appears on foulards, men’s outerwear and women’s shirts.      MODULAR BAGS    La Greca bags come with logo hardware and they can be customized with smaller clip-on accessories and extra pockets for a look that feels very personal to the wearer. Bold shades clash on smaller bags and mix-and-match shoulder straps. The 3D Greca also appears on oversized earrings, hair pins, jewelry and confident buckles.   “I have realized that this is the future, the new way of communicating collections.  Models are like actors, they bring the designs to life, just like when a performer portrays a character.

LOEWE PRESENTS THE WOMEN'S FW21 PRESENTATION: "A SHOW IN THE NEWS "

LOEWE PRESENTS THE WOMEN'S FW21 PRESENTATION: "A SHOW IN THE NEWS "

Fashion Week Since the confinement measures and movement restrictions do not allow fashion shows to be held in the traditional format, and wanting to shy away from digital presentation formats, LOEWE and Jonathan Anderson have chosen to showcase their new collection through print media: a worldwide newspaper supplement in a selection of high-circulation publications, in order to reach a wider audience than just the fashion insiders. Giving continuity to the idea of naming one of his presentations last summer "Show In A Box", another evocation on paper that replaced the fashion show that could not be, Jonathan Anderson has baptized this initiative as "A Show In The News".     A Show in the News contains images of LOEWE's upcoming looks. The design has been done by LOEWE and Jonathan Anderson's regular collaborators, M/M Paris. The photos are by photographer Fumiko Imano with model Freja Beha Erichsen, and reflect LOEWE's RTW and Accessories collection for next fall, which will go on sale at LOEWE stores and loewe.com starting next August.     Alongside the images, LOEWE's supplement comes together with an excerpt from acclaimed novelist Danielle Steel's latest book, The Affair. Her inclusion here references the literary tradition of famous works published as newspaper serials in the 19th century by such figures as Charles Dickens and Alexandre Dumas. Today, Steel remains the world's most successful living writer in publishing, with 800 million copies of her 180 novels sold. Her latest work, which makes no direct reference to either Jonathan Anderson or LOEWE, but takes place in the context of the fashion industry and its heroine is the director of a fictitious fashion publication.       The Women's Fall-Winter 2021 runway collection is a total statement, saturated with shape and color and exaggerated to the max. It highlights an explosive palette of bright hues and acrylics juxtaposed in graphic compositions, forming abstract silhouettes that swirl around the body, cover it completely and even sprout from it. Geometry is the protagonist, both in the silhouette and in the surface treatment.     Color block ankle boots with lug soles, some with pleated buckles and others with ankle bracelets add an electric shock to the collection. The multi-faceted Puzzle bag comes in colorful stripes, the Flamenco XL clutch in bright shades and the new Goya bag with a soft calf flap, showing a strong and defined line. TheAmazona bag - first launched in 1975 and now considered the quintessential LOEWE bag - captures the spirit of this season through calf nappa leather and jacquard variations of the house's logo.

The multi-faceted Puzzle bag comes in colorful stripes, the Flamenco XL clutch in bright shades and the new Goya bag with a soft calf flap, showing a strong and defined line. TheAmazona bag - first launched in 1975 and now considered the quintessential LOEWE bag - captures the spirit of this season through calf nappa leather and jacquard variations of the house's logo.

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.

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.

DSQUARED2 PRESENTS THE NEW COLLECTION FOR FALL & WINTER

Fashion Week 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. Outdoorsy tweed checks and wallpaper florals in earthy tones take form in retro shapes.     Dressing for the outdoors—the Canadian woods—and the city has a new uniform in Dsquared2’s Fall Winter 2021 men’s collection. 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.

Salvatore Ferragamo presents the new collection for Fall & Winter

Fashion Week Salvatore Ferragamo leaps forward to shape a new now. Inspired by the limitless conceptual freedom of science fiction and the house’s heritage of technical innovation, creative director Paul Andrew projects into the future to craft an alternative vision for the present. Fueled by optimism and hope, this is a bright and youthful collection that disrupts and upgrades 21st century tropes of uniform - business, military, evening, sporting – discarding all that is old-fashioned. This collection is driven by sensitivity for the health of our environment.     Paul Andrew says: “In fashion, the past exerts a gravity - we are always drawn to it. For this season I wanted to invert that physics. The objective was to engineer a collection that sees the present through a prism of the future – unleashing a multitude of fresh perspectives. Pre-millennial sci-fi classics Gattaca, Until The End Of The World, and The Matrixwere all cinematic influences - past imaginings of the future that have shaped today. For this ‘Future Positive’ collection I imagined the standard contours of today’s uniforms as fossilised remnants of a long-forgotten past, freed of all associations of class, colour or creed. This collection proposes new uniforms for a utopian future in which diversity and positivity combine to transform our world for the better. As Salvatore Ferragamo once said of his own work, this collection is dedicated ‘to all those who must walk’ – at a time when we must be united in our determination to reimagine, rebuild, progress.”      Ready-to-wear sees tailoring templates blended and sequenced with codes drawn from militaria, moto, athletics, scuba and beyond. For both women and men, shirting, mohair knits, footwear and accessories are connected and complementary, presented in monochrome against bursts of colour. Seasonal advances include capes, coats and parkas in heat-processed leathers and wools, fine gauge technical knitwear, knit bodysuits and dresses patterned in an abstract future camouflage. Utility parkas and casual tailoring, dresses and outerwear strafed with irregular bursts of fringed yarn. A constellation of draped jersey dresses and statements in chainmail star and shine throughout the lineup.     Key footwear include space-biker boots, scuba sock sneakers, clogs in rubberised nappa, and a sleek reinterpretation of Ferragamo’s iconic F-heel adorned with rhinestones and a galvanised finish.  Key bags include the Nano-Trifolio in rubberised nappa and a revolumed, deconstructed Studio bag. A travel bag for men comes in a futuristic Gancini-embossed leather and features a pocketed utility strap.     A dress realized in polyester made from post-consumer recycled materials. Footwear soles include wood from certified responsibly managed forestry, recycled pre-consumer TPU rubber and polyurethane and metal-free leather tanned with plant-based materials and through a certified lower environmental impact production process. Selected accessories are made from upcycled pre-consumer offcuts, addressing material waste and avoiding virgin material production, and others are made from certified recycled pre and post-consumer wool and cashmere. Part of leather have been made with a chrome-free or metal-free tanning process. Sewing threads for part of footwear and leather goods are made from 100% post-consumer certified recycled PET.     ferragamo.com Salvatore Ferragamo leaps forward to shape a new now.
