AMI unveiled its Spring-Summer 22 collection through a film titled “L’Échappée Belle”

AMI unveiled its Spring-Summer 22 collection through a film titled “L’Échappée Belle”

Fashion Week L’Échappée Belle – a French expression meaning the great escape. A short feature film, the spontaneous jaunt of a close-knitted group of friends. The title is an allegorical reference to a newfound freedom, to the outdoors, to better times ahead. It is a celebration of the joy of being together, much of which we have sorely missed in the past year.     The film is set on the grounds of a seemingly abandoned funfair at night, with its deserted alleys of stands, rides and carousels. Neon lights, strong pop colors and mirrors lend a fun and intemporal atmosphere to the location, while the emptiness brings an eerie, dream-like sensation, reminiscent of our once empty cities in lockdown.     The main characters: a group of friends, carefree, leaving the city for an escape in a more poetic, almost apocalyptic environment. They enjoy being together again, at long last. The friends take possession of the funfair, wandering around in a space only for them, a night of exploration of what the future will be, a night of liberty and discovery, in a metaphor of the passage between old world and new world, between lockdown and freedom..     The 6-minute film was directed by Alvaro Colom, the Spanish filmmaker and photographer, whose background as a dancer influences his work with a graceful, choreography-like flow. New York-based Alvaro regularly shoots some of the most sought-after names in fashion, for magazines such as Vogue and Vanity Fair, and has been the mind and lens behind multiple campaigns for top fashion houses.   This marks Alvaro’s second collaboration with AMI: he has previously signed Fall-Winter 21’s digital presentation “Le Défilé”— the most-watched presentation ever in the brand’s history.     THE SET   Alexandre Mattiussi pictured the Ami Funfair as the ideal setting for his great escape, L’Échappée Belle. Traditional rides, including a carousel, a mirror maze, bumping cars and a life-size ferris wheel -all dressed in neon lights-, were recreated inside a Parisian venue.     The alleys were transformed into a runway for the models, who acted as a group of friends escaping the city into this almost surreal scenario.     THE COLLECTION      AMI’s Spring-Summer 22 highlights the quintessential design spirit of the brand. The collection of the New Normal, intrinsically fresh and dynamic, yet intuitively elegant. The approach is free lighthearted. AMI’s effortless Parisian chic; its concept of wardrobe, expressive, wearable.     The collection is defined by its familiar palette, a vibrant mix between levels of tonalities: from pastels to strong, flashy colors, and muted, darker sophisticated ones -including dusty pink, bright fuchsia, deep burgundy, pale aqua and bright green-.     AMI’s iconic, modern silhouettes get sharper shapes, more volumes, and an utmost sartorial sense. Womenswear shows a newfound femininity, stronger and modern, with pieces that emphasize the waist, refined shoes, and all-over mesh embroideries.     L’Échappée Belle features a new range of bags in neutral colors that complement the energetic tones from the ready-to-wear collection: the Accordéon, AMI’s latest “it-bag” for Spring-Summer 22, a geometric shape with utilitarian feeling, and the Small Déjà-Vu - the reinterpretation on the Déjà-Vu, first seen in AMI’s Fall-Winter 21 runway.

GIVENCHY PRESENTS SPRING 2022 WOMEN’S & MEN'S READY-TO-WEAR PRECOLLECTION

GIVENCHY PRESENTS SPRING 2022 WOMEN’S & MEN'S READY-TO-WEAR PRECOLLECTION

Fashion Week Creative Director Matthew M. Williams celebrates freedom and individual style with the graphic artist Chito.     “In my collections, I always speak to lived reality. For Spring 2022, our first pre-collection runway show, I wanted to bring together my American roots and my brand new life in Paris. There’s an energy of striking out for a new adventure, of drawing on something familiar yet creating something completely new. Chito made an ideal collaborator because we share that storyline; we speak the same language. Like me, he expresses his distinct visual signatures through unique pieces that give people total freedom to make creations their own personal statement.” Matthew M. Williams, Creative Director, Givenchy     With the Givenchy Spring 2022 pre-collection, Creative Director Matthew M. Williams expands on the new tone and attitude he has established for the House by celebrating two cultures and two loves — his homeland, and France, the country he now calls home.     A video shot by Jasmine Loignon evokes Matthew M. Williams’ journey from the U.S. to France. It opens with Lady Liberty beckoning Givenchy women and men to strike out in search of urban adventure and they roam the city freely in a rich, slightly Surreal layering of cross-border references. A spirit of bridging worlds — with a runway set amid a Paris train yard — becomes an ideal metaphor for the Creative Director’s first artistic collaboration for Givenchy: a playful, directional dialogue with the Seattle-born, Mexico-based artist Chito for clothes, accessories and RIMOWA suitcases. In the closing shot, New York and Paris become one. Creative Director Matthew M.

Digital editorial starring Maria Sillandi

Fashion New exclusive digital editorial starring Maria Sillandi.     Maria: "I started modeling back when I was 17 years old. I was discovered in Estonia in a fast food restaurant. As I was not in the best shape at the time I had to loose weight to be able to model on a higher level. I was struggling, and if I had to go back in time I would not repeat it. I had to eat a certain amount of calories per day, was measuring my food, loosing hair etc. Sadly that caused an eating disorder, which many women unfortunately struggle with as well. After that I found a different agency in London which works with curvy & plus size models, they accepted m and that made me feel comfortable with myself. That is how it should be.'      Team Credits: photography: Raffaele Grosso talent: Maria Sillandi styling: Marco de Lucia art director: Gilda Koral Flora hair and make-up: Elisa Rampi   New exclusive digital editorial starring Maria Sillandi.     Maria: "I started modeling back when I was 17 years old.

Jacquemus presents the new collection "La Montagne" for Spring & Summer

Fashion Week After pausing their shows for a year, they have arrived at La Montagne. They set out to explore men’s and women’s fashion once again together and with exhilaration; to elevate a Pop feeling; to reinvent our codes with extra strength.     Thus, we drew inspiration from trek and ski garments: crisp, technical fabrics; a mix of earthy and vibrant colours; reinterpreted outerwear; carabiners and strap systems that are both decorative and functional. Yet we also integrated lingerie features, interpreting contoured shapes and details in our own language of sensuality. Styling crosses over while proportions are constantly redrawing the body – from second-skin ribbed knits to ample, fold-over pants cinched with cord. In this shared wardrobe, men wear crop tops and women wear large cargo pants. The outcome: silhouettes that develop sport references with sexiness – at once multipurpose and exciting at first sight.     The collection proposes sharp constructions throughout: tailoring in stretch wool that is soft and fluid, or else lightly padded. Pants are cut long and lean with hook-and-eye fastenings that create flared legs. Dresses in viscose, lycra and mohair are similarly fitted and include slinky columns and angular skirts with delineated waistlines and deep slits. Crisp, coated wool jackets and poplin shirts are assembled with modular details such as an integrated belt bag or detachable pockets.     Outerwear garments are reimagined with a streetwear slant: jackets in ripstop or impermeable fabrics; detachable elements that transform into shorts; thumbholes in fluffier knits. Shearling makes its debut – from cropped to oversized, natural camel and ivory to crystal blue.     Layering takes many forms – from second-skin knits visible under larger volumes, to hybrid roll-up bustiers and harnesses worn over blouses and shirts. Colours are layered throughout the line-up, too. Tonal groupings of ecru, sand, khaki green and darker brown alternate with a vivid sport-inspired palette comprising saturated red, orange and shades of pink. For balance, cool blues are accented with optic green. Black reframes the sport attitude with sophisticated allure.     Surfaces are layered with fine straps and custom hardware – shiny gold clips and clasps, lingerie finishings and signature Jacquemus nameplates. Floppy flower petals are tacked onto puffer jackets for dimension, in addition to appearing as an all-over tonal or contrast motif.     All materials are of European origin, which allows for improved traceability and lower transport time, ultimately redu- cing the carbon footprint. Suppliers are largely eco-responsible in their manufacturing methods.     The new bag, Ciuciu, offers a compact horizontal shape that is rigid and boxy with an exaggerated chain and thick strap boasting a functional pocket. Jacquemus socks in recycled ribbed cotton, offered in a spectrum of complemen- tary hues, convey the completeness of each look.     Says Simon, “For this collection, after such a particular year, I wanted to gather people inside and share a fashion moment together. I wanted to focus on the clothes, the silhouettes, the colours, the fabrics, the details, and the energy of the models. I wanted the set to be minimal and sharp, recreating an abstract artistic mountain that portrays the ins- piration of the collection.” After pausing their shows for a year, they have arrived at La Montagne.

In conversation with Marques’Almeida

Fashion We had a pleasure speaking with Marques'Almeida about their collaboration with 7 FOR ALL MANKIND and sustainability.       The collection sort of based on sustainability, how did you make the collection sustainable?   The collection is called reM’Ade by 7FAM because its part of the reM’Ade label we created under our main MARQUES ‘ ALMEIDA label in which the products are done with deadstock or waste materials. 7FAM is one of the first collaborators to embark on this journey with us to produce collections with waste materials!     How did this collaboration happen?    It came as a continuation of our first very successful and happy collaboration and because we were both as creatives and as brands thinking about sustainability and what steps we could take next to join this conversation and raise awareness to this issue in the fashion world.     A collab is between 2 designers, how did you make sure that the collection has the Marques’Almeida look and feel?   7FAM have always been incredibly generous and trusting when it comes to our creative vision and their team is incredibly hands on to bring on their knowledge and heritage to make this shared vision comes to life!     This is the second collaboration with 7 For All Mankind, will there be more collaborations with them in the future?   We hope so. :)     What or who inspired the designs in the collection?   For us at M’A is always about making sure it attracts a diverse audience – yes we have an ideal of girls in mind, and maybe more so when we started years ago, but that has been loosing importance everytime because its become more about understanding embracing and loving diversity and we hope these pieces get worn and loved and enjoyed by a different range of people!     Sustainability, inclusivity and diversity are something you’re aiming for with your brand, how do you achieve that?   We’re taking steps as we go along and learning more about it and making mistakes and learning from our mistakes but for us it really has to do with questioning that in everything we do .making sure we’re using our platform to give voice to whoever doesn’t normaly have a voice in this industry as they’ll know better than us what we should say what we should do to be a more inclusive supportive industry.     And how do you feel about the fashion industry right now? Are they doing enough to achieve these goals as well?   Unfortunately not. There’s a lot of greenwashing and a lot of performance – and its hard to navigate and I don’t mean to discourage younger smaller brands with judgement. But the big corporations must really question things and turn them on its head because its them who will make the real change. That’s why we were so thrilled that a big company like 7FAM with its enourmous reach would join forces with us so willingly on a project like this J     In your bio you quote Helmut Lang “fashion is about attitude not hemlines,” how do you apply this mindset to your work?   I guess it means that for us its always about the purpose, the principle, about what it says and not just the product in itself as a soulless product is not worth much.     Is there something you learned from 7 For All Mankind while working on this collection together?    We learned the challenges a bigger company has in front of them when they try to go a different route. In many ways its easier to change when you’re a smaller company. We also always learn thorugh them about the heritage and technical knowledge in the jeanswear field which we very much appreciate     You won various prizes in the past, is there something on your bucketlist that you really want to achieve in the future?   Change, meaningful change, that’s our biggest dream right now. We’re just coming of of the first 10 years of M’A and we hope the next 10 are about affecting real meaningful change.     We had a pleasure speaking with Marques'Almeida about their collaboration with 7 FOR ALL MANKIND and sustainability.       The collection sort of based on sustainability, how did you make the collection sustainable?   The collection is called reM’Ade by 7FAM because its part of the reM’Ade label we created under our main MARQUES ‘ ALMEIDA label in which the products are done with deadstock or waste materials. 7FAM is one of the first collaborators to embark on this journey with us to produce collections with waste materials!     How did this collaboration happen?    It came as a continuation of our first very successful and happy collaboration and because we were both as creatives and as brands thinking about sustainability and what steps we could take next to join this conversation and raise awareness to this issue in the fashion world.     A collab is between 2 designers, how did you make sure that the collection has the Marques’Almeida look and feel?   7FAM have always been incredibly generous and trusting when it comes to our creative vision and their team is incredibly hands on to bring on their knowledge and heritage to make this shared vision comes to life!     This is the second collaboration with 7 For All Mankind, will there be more collaborations with them in the future?   We hope so. :)     What or who inspired the designs in the collection?   For us at M’A is always about making sure it attracts a diverse audience – yes we have an ideal of girls in mind, and maybe more so when we started years ago, but that has been loosing importance everytime because its become more about understanding embracing and loving diversity and we hope these pieces get worn and loved and enjoyed by a different range of people!     Sustainability, inclusivity and diversity are something you’re aiming for with your brand, how do you achieve that?   We’re taking steps as we go along and learning more about it and making mistakes and learning from our mistakes but for us it really has to do with questioning that in everything we do .making sure we’re using our platform to give voice to whoever doesn’t normaly have a voice in this industry as they’ll know better than us what we should say what we should do to be a more inclusive supportive industry.     And how do you feel about the fashion industry right now?

Fashion As part of our collaboration with Zalando #ActivistsofOptimism we had a pleasure to work with and speak with Laurens.      Can you please introduce yourself to the readers a little bit.   Hi my name is Laurens I’m a Dj, producer and a model. I lived in the Dominican Republic for over six years and I moved back to the Netherlands last year.      What does optimism mean to you?    Optimism actually means a lot to me because I personally am pretty optimistic person and also my family, my parents kind of taught me that. Especially my mindset you know I always think of the future in a positive way and on a long-term basis so that's why it's kind of a big part of my life.     What does freedom mean to you?    What freedom means to me.. For example you can be free financially wise but that's not what it means to me. Freedom to me means being stable with our mind, being in a good mental position. Because you can have anything you want but if you're not happy for example it doesn't really do anything to you. You always be sad or depressed. Freedom really means to me being mentally healthy.     When do you feel the most free?   I personally feel the most free when I'm on stage performing because when I'm on stage you know nothing around really matters you only focus on the music and you see all the people dancing, so that makes me happy and free in a way.      What keeps you happy and positive in these days?    Mainly my life goals. Because I want to be a professional DJ, producer and model of course so I’m just really focused on that. Even though during Covid I couldn’t do a lot of shows so I put more time into producing and tried to master my craft even better. That’s just what keeps me going, that vision of the future.      Where are you looking forward to the future?   I'm looking forward to accomplishing my dreams and goals which is being a professional DJ and international artist and a professional model as well. And also being able to spend a lot of time with my friends and family and involving them into what I do, taking them with me and be able to share my craft with other people.     What are you daydreaming about?    What am I daydreaming about?  What I am mostly daydreaming about is me being on let’s say ‘Ultra’ Miami performing on the main stage. Just being there and everyone is dancing to my music and I'm just up there with a good team behind me of course and see my family and my friends with me there. That really gets me excited and makes me happy.      Team: Videography & Fashion: GINO GURRIERI @ginogurrieri  Photography: HANS VAN BRAKEL @hansvanbrakelstudio Make Up & Hair: WOUT PHILIPPO  Casting TIMOTEJ LETONJA @timiletonja Production: MAGDALENA ROE @magdalenaroe  Video Assistant: JELLE VAN BRAKEL @jelle.vbr Photography Assistant: SANDER VAN BRAKEL @sandervbrakel Fashion Assistant: MICHAEL GEERTZEN @michael_geertzen Make Up & Hair Assistant: LONA CERUTTI @lonamakeupartist Words and Voiceover: CHELSEABOY @xochelseaboy  Music: ‚Also Sprach Zarathustra, op.30’ RICHARD STRAUSS TALENTS: CHELSEABOY @xochelseaboy , MAGDALENA ROE @magdalenaroe, TIMOTEJ LETONJ @timiletonja, DIEUDONNÉE @dieudonnee via PLACE MODELS @placemodels, SANDER VAN BRAKEL @sandervbrakel, JELLE VAN BRAKEL @jelle.vbr, MICHAEL GEERTZEN @michael_geertzen, LAURENS @therealfishtank via THE MOVEMENT MODELS @themovementmodels  Photography & production assistant @daniel.sars      All clothing available on Zalando. https://www.zalando.nl As part of our collaboration with Zalando #ActivistsofOptimism we had a pleasure to work with and speak with Laurens.      Can you please introduce yourself to the readers a little bit.   Hi my name is Laurens I’m a Dj, producer and a model.
