DAILY PAPER EXPLORES HARMONIZATION WITH ALIEN SPECIES IN THEIR END-OF-SEASON SS20 EDITORIAL

Fashion Earlier this year, Daily Paper’s Spring/Summer 2020 campaign imagined how a future society could build the foundations of a new world. The concept motivates us to examine our multiple identities as the continuation of our collective movement into another realm. Combining ancient and future knowledge, all species can have a concept of a home that is endless, inclusive and universal according to Daily Paper.     Shot by Amsterdam based photographer Lois Cohen and styled by Indiana Roma Voss, the end-of-season ‘Alien Luv’ editorial seeks to redefine our perceptions of alien species through the topics of family, love and community. The images examine the subjective nature of beauty, and how our definition of physical attractiveness changes over time and between cultures. The editorial is accompanied by a short film by director Folkert Verdoorn, that explores the wider shifts in societal norms as alien species become integrated with humans and serves as a commentary on our vision towards race and culture. Leaving it up to the viewer to decide if we as humans, can allow our past mistakes to define us or if we can shift our consciousness, love each other and create a better future for all.       PHOTO CREDITS  Creative direction: @loisycohen & @indianaromavoss Photographer: @loisycohen Agent / Producer: @celinebrill at Cake Production manager: @victorgriffioen Production assistant: @nikedolman Photography assistant: @hyungbalkema Stylist: @indianaromavoss Stylist assistant: @leawilbrand Special effects / prosthetics: @toki_made Make up: Kathinka Gernant Make up assistant: @romy_legger Hair: @sikovanberkel Hair assistant: @patrickburhenne Hair assistant: Isa Hinloopen Talents: Amber van Oirschot @ambervanoirschot Reilly Do Rosario @reillyfreemn Imani Selina @imaniselina Aucilia Do Rosario Ottawa @ottawakwami Le Chayno @lechayno Berber Bruessing Philip van den Bosch Earlier this year, Daily Paper’s Spring/Summer 2020 campaign imagined how a future society could build the foundations of a new world.

Alexander McQueen releases womenswear Pre Fall 2020

Fashion British art nouveau and arts and crafts, the restrained elegance of modernism: the sinuous iris, the proud thistle and The Glasgow Rose. The windswept earth and Northern landscapes laid bare. The core of the earth and the treasures hidden beneath its surface. Metal ores: rich seams of gold, silver and copper running throughout. Mineralogy: crystal, agate, flint, rock; opaque and sculptural on the outside, jewelled and reflective within. The juxtaposition between sobriety and seduction, the raw and the refined, the textured and the smooth, the light and the dark, all contrasts true to the handwriting of the house of Alexander McQueen.   British art nouveau and arts and crafts, the restrained elegance of modernism: the sinuous iris, the proud thistle and The Glasgow Rose.

FENDI's California Sky Collection featuring Joshua Vides' vibrant graphics

Fashion FENDI brings a touch of dynamic, free spirited Californian vibe to its Prefall 2020 Collection designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi, through an exclusive collaboration with Los Angeles-based visual artist Joshua Vides, following last July’s Harrods FENDI CAFFE and Peekaboo Bar pop-up.     For FENDI’s Prefall 2020, Joshua Vides, one of the most interesting figures on the contemporary art scene who is known worldwide for his unique black & white marker style, gives his dizzyingly cool, cartoon-like treatment to a range of Women’s, Men’s and Kid’s Ready-to-Wear and Accessories pieces.   In keeping with his signature style, Joshua Vides worked a black & white color palette including his trademark marker style, peppered by sky blue and wisteria violet touches, to create charming 3D, tromp-l’oeil effects by mapping the seams and edges of a range of urban and resort styles.  He also reinterpreted a vibrant, whimsical floral allover motif and reworked the FENDI Stamps and the iconic FF logo, splashed over a degrade background inspired by the shades of the Roman sky, with cartoonish, graphic exuberance.       The eye-catching decorative motifs conceived by Joshua Vides give an artsy, audacious attitude to the Women’s designs, which combine urban staples and resort styles. Mainly focused on lightweight fabrications, the Collection spans from street-savvy nylon windbreakers, embossed cycling shorts, compact knits and printed denim pants to luxurious featherweight fur coats and cardigans, reversible padded blousons, perforated leather jackets, as well as a selection of elegant evening styles crafted from a textured cloqué jacquard fabric. For beach escapes, kaftans and poplin shirtdresses are shown next to beachwear and activewear for an energetic, dynamic vibe.    Joshua Vides’ marker style also gives a distinctive attitude to FENDI’s iconic accessories, from the Peekaboo and Baguetteiconic bags, shown in a super soft padded leather, and the new FENDI Roma shopper, to the signature Colibrìsling-backs and FF Fluid sock sneakers crafted from polished leather.      The same graphic extravaganza defines the Men’s selection, where tromp l’oeil effects, shaded details, flowers and revisited FF logo patterns give a twist to cotton jackets, satin blousons, embossed leather outerwear, sweatshirts, T-shirts, denim pants, cotton trousers, Bermuda pants, as well as accessories, including the iconic Baguette, a small travel case, a backpack, a fanny pack, small leather goods, sneakers, sandals and slides.      The Kids Collection completes the family offer featuring the Joshua Vides’ graphics, the black and white marker style and the revisited FF logo, to add a fun touch to children’s windbreakers, cotton shirts, shorts, hyper feminine dresses and accessories, such as slip-on sneakers, sandals and backpacks.     The Collection includes a new interpretation of bestseller FendiramaWomen’s Sunglasses, featuring a silver metal frame and a graphic interpretation of the FENDI Stamps on the silver mirror lenses, as well as the new Men’s Botanical Fendi Sunglasses, an extra-light white shield with the iconic reinterpreted FF logo mirrored all over the grey lens.      Explore more on Fendi.com FENDI brings a touch of dynamic, free spirited Californian vibe to its Prefall 2020 Collection designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi, through an exclusive collaboration with Los Angeles-based visual artist Joshua Vides, following last July’s Harrods FENDI CAFFE and Peekaboo Bar pop-up.     For FENDI’s Prefall 2020, Joshua Vides, one of the most interesting figures on the contemporary art scene who is known worldwide for his unique black & white marker style, gives his dizzyingly cool, cartoon-like treatment to a range of Women’s, Men’s and Kid’s Ready-to-Wear and Accessories pieces.   In keeping with his signature style, Joshua Vides worked a black & white color palette including his trademark marker style, peppered by sky blue and wisteria violet touches, to create charming 3D, tromp-l’oeil effects by mapping the seams and edges of a range of urban and resort styles.  He also reinterpreted a vibrant, whimsical floral allover motif and reworked the FENDI Stamps and the iconic FF logo, splashed over a degrade background inspired by the shades of the Roman sky, with cartoonish, graphic exuberance.       The eye-catching decorative motifs conceived by Joshua Vides give an artsy, audacious attitude to the Women’s designs, which combine urban staples and resort styles.

FENDI Renaissance – Anima Mundi

FENDI Renaissance – Anima Mundi

Culture FENDI Renaissance – Anima Mundi is the title of the streaming event that will be presented on June 20th, 2020, by the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and the Maison FENDI. This unique event is a performance of Antonio Vivaldi’s Estate from The Four Seasons executed by the orchestra of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and star violinist Anna Tifu, who for the occasion will be dressed in three different FENDI Couture looks. Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, FENDI’s picturesque headquarters in Rome, will be the stage of the performance.     The project is the result of a collaboration between Accademia di Santa Cecilia and FENDI, two realities deeply bound to the city of Rome of which they are an expression of excellence and creativity at the highest levels. The idea of the performance comes from the desire to share with the community, after the pandemic, a positive message of rebirth through art, fashion and music. The symphonic music, whose peculiarity lies in the highest quality of sound, finds for the first time its iconographic expression through FENDI’s Couture dresses which visually personify the narrative of Estate. The performance will be celebrated on the day of the summer solstice, symbolizing the common desire to restart, reunite and rejoin. Of all the concerts of the Vivaldi cycle, Estate is the one that leads the listener to a climax of exciting and engaging emotions, rendered by the musical writing with almost “visible” effects.     Anima Mundi represents the unifying principle from which each organism takes shape, articulating and differentiating itself through its individual specifications, to then unify under a Universal Soul. The performance is executed following this concept, with the musicians first playing separately and then united by a special element: the Orchestra. It will be an “itinerant” performance in space and time, the one of violinist Anna Tifu and of the orchestral professors. From the first movement, at dawn, on the steps of Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana and then under the arches, maintaining the social distance imposed by the events of recent weeks, the musicians will finally rejoin at sunset on the rooftop of the “Square Colosseum” to tune up for the last movement of Estate, playing music together again after these months of forced separation and celebrating together the warmth of music and summer.             Anna Tifu plays the 1716 Antonio Stradivari “Marèchal Berthier” ex Napoleon a very prestigious violin that the Fondazione Pro Canale of Milan lends to the most talented violinists to be played and be brought back to life.  Antonio Stradivari is universally regarded as the greatest violin maker in history. Studies say the violin left Stradivari's shop to be delivered to the Court of Spain, where it remained until the French occupation. Napoleon's General Alexandre Berthier, the Commander-in-Chief of the victorious expedition, brought the instruments to France and received it later as a gift from the emperor himself.       From June 20th, 2020, on www.fendi.com, @fendi, www.santacecilia.it, @accademiadisantacecilia   #FendiAnimaMundi   #FendiRenaissance FENDI Renaissance – Anima Mundi is the title of the streaming event that will be presented on June 20th, 2020, by the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and the Maison FENDI.

Daily Paper releases the new Spring & summer Kids campaign

Fashion Daily Paper today launch their Spring Summer 2020 Kids campaign celebrating fatherhood through a series of portraits that offer a glimpse into the most intimate moments that fathers share with their children.   A Genuine Depiction of Fatherhood: Using our platform as a voice for positive black representation, the campaign highlights and honors the reality we see in our society - the overwhelming majority of husbands, brothers, sons & boyfriends who are balancing successful careers as artists and creatives whilst being exceptional fathers too. The editorial features a few of the London-based creatives who make up our extended tribe including Kida Kudz, Mark Maciver aka SliderCuts and Grooveguruu. To us, these men are not only our friends and family but are emblematic of what fatherhood should be.     A visual interpretation of the poem ‘Oh Child’ (referenced below) written by the multidisciplinary creative Florian Joahn, the series of photographs and accompanying film explores a central theme intrinsic to the father-child relationship – as their innocent yet naive child navigates their way through harsh realities of the modern world for the first time, a father has to make a choice between being their protector or granting them freedom. While being overprotective can rob a child of the freedom to grow and carve their own path through life, too much independence can leave a child vulnerable to a world that feels geared against them – this is the internal struggle faced by every father across the globe.     The Daily Paper’s SS20 Kids campaign visualizes a genuine depiction of fatherhood through the sincere and sober portrayal of the father-child relationship inside the home.    A Diverse Collection Designed for Babies and Children: The real stars of the editorial –  the adorable Enoch, Samuel, Makelo, and Aroko – are styled in selected pieces from the Daily Paper SS20 Kids collection. The unisex line of clothing is designed for all ages, from newborn to child, and consists of a range of rompers alongside comfy sport and swimwear focused silhouettes. Highlights include mini-me versions of iconic pieces like our ‘Tape Logo’ track pants alongside our ‘Alias’ tees to make for some seriously cute co-ordinated parent-child combinations.    Meanwhile, our swimwear offerings include a bucket hat with chin strap for all-day sun protection at the beach or poolside alongside matching swim shorts or swimsuits. For more formal occasions, we introduce vividly striped long-sleeve polos which were tailormade for matching daddy-daughter or son combos.      The forthcoming Daily Paper SS20 Kids line releases on June 19th, 12:00 PM CET at Daily Paper storefronts, select retailer The Bijenkorf in Amsterdam, and online at www.dailypaperclothing.com.

Kenzo & Vans collaborate

Accessories For Spring 2020, KENZO reprises its partnership with the iconic skate brand Vans with a new footwear collaboration. Vivid, all-over floral prints taken from the KENZO archives wrap legendary Vans Sk8-Hi, high-top sneaker, and the Old-Skool, low-top sneaker – the iconic silhoue e featuring the classics Vans Sidestripe. The styles come in three prints each, ranging in men’s and women’s sizing.     Expanding on the skate inspiration is a capsule of ready-to-wear pieces and accessories designed by Felipe Oliveira Baptista – his rst capsule collection for the Maison. Like the KENZO/Vans sneakers, archival floral prints are the thread of this dynamic, youthful wardrobe. Sharp cuts and unisex themes lend a sporty comfort to the pieces. The capsule includes 46 ready-to-wear pieces, including jersey items made with 100% organic co on – as well as a selection of bob hats, baseball caps, backpacks and bags.     Complementing the capsule is an exclusive lifestyle item created in collaboration with The Skateroom: a KENZO skateboard art edition. With a limited quantity of 150 pieces, the skateboard deck is available in selective KENZO stores globally and on KENZO.com. 100% of the pro ts from the KENZO skateboard art edition will be donated to a social skate project to empower at-risk youth in Jamaica.     In a raw reportage featuring images and videos, Ari Marcopoulos captures seven real skaters and friends in Los Angeles – Tre’Veon Ladson, Tyron Wa s, Vincent Nava, Omoye Brown, Surish Singh, David Branom and Rebecca L’Amore. Out ed in pieces from the capsule against the Californian backdrop, the campaign provides an intimate insight into their everyday lives.     The capsule will be available in KENZO stores globally and KENZO.com from June 17th, 2020.
