LOEWE PRESENTS THE NEW PAULA'S IBIZA 2021 CAPSULE COLLECTION

Accessories LOEWE launches a new edition of its Paula's Ibiza summer capsule, a collection composed of RTW and accessories inspired by the island of Ibiza. With this capsule, Jonathan Anderson brings the carefree spirit of the beach to everyday life, bringing the sparkle of the sunny Balearics to simple garments and easy-to-wear accessories, with a marked touch of craftsmanship. With this collection, summer is presented to us as a way of being rather than a season: a mentality that runs throughout the year, filling us with energetic joy.     Throughout its five editions, Paula's Ibiza capsule has evolved into a complete proposal for men and women. In 2021, it incorporates new shapes characterized by a softness that is reflected in the deconstructed blazers for men, and also in the set of dresses and tops that are combined with women's pants, offering multiple utilities beyond the moment of summer vacation. Silhouettes are loose-fitting, asymmetrical; effortlessness is key. The fun proposal of prints inspired by the natural world comes from the repertoire created by Paula's founders Armin Heinemann and Stuart Rudnick: parrots, pigeons, crocodiles... alternate with a fun psychedelic interpretation of the LOEWE logo.     Paula's Ibiza 2021 collection features Anagram baskets made from Iraca palm, woven in Colombia by women artisans who are members of the Corporación Oficio and the NGO Arte (an artisan collective that helps these women to become economically independent and educate their children). These woven palm baskets, combined with LOEWE's unparalleled expertise in leather work, result in timeless objects impeccably crafted in our workshops in Spain. LOEWE classics such as the Hammock, Balloon and Gate, in ecru and navy canvas, which gives them a summery feel.     The visual portfolio that accompanies the presentation is a collaboration with photographer Gray Sorrenti, with scenes of Mexico City's colorful architecture. The protagonists pose under a dazzling sun that plays with the graphic shapes of the shadows and vibrant colors of the city.     Paula's Ibiza 2021 collection will be on sale at loewe.com and LOEWE stores from April 15th.

TOMMY HILFIGER AND PATTA CELEBRATE THE STRENGTH AND UNITY OF THE DIASPORA MOVEMENT IN COLLABORATIVE CAPSULE

Fashion Tommy Hilfiger, and trailblazing Amsterdam-based street wear brand, Patta, announce the Spring 2021 PATTAxTOMMY capsule that captures the strength and influence of the African diaspora movement with the message “unity is strength, division is weakness.” Patta and Tommy Hilfiger share a belief in openness and are committed to fostering inclusivity, collaboration and community. The PATTAxTOMMY  range will be available via the Patta retail network and PattaxTommy.com globally beginning Friday, April 9, 2021 at 1 p.m. CEST, and via selected wholesale partners starting April 16, 2021.      Collaborating for the first-time, Patta and Tommy Hilfiger centered the  PATTAxTOMMY capsule around the Pan-African Flag, Black unity and community, channeling a sense of interconnected histories, present times and the future that lies ahead. To celebrate this, the iconic white, red and blue TOMMY colors have been replaced by the traditional Pan-African colors of deep red, black, green and yellow, putting African culture and community self-actualization front and center in this capsule.      The  PATTAxTOMMY campaign aims to shine a light on the multifaceted nature of life in inner cities. The video assets were captured in Lagos, Nigeria by Nigerian filmmaker Dafe Oboro through his short film, “Two Become One,” with campaign photography by Moroccan visual artist Hassan Hajjaj. To further underscore the collection’s message, Patta has produced “Katibo Yeye,” a documentary directed by award-winning Dutch film director, Frank Zichem.. The film follows Clarence Breeveld, a Suriname-born man living in the Netherlands, as he attempts to trace the shipping route from Ghana to Suriname traveled by his enslaved ancestors, visiting locations where slave trading took place. “Katibo Yeye” will be available to watch at PattaxTommy.com for a limited time only.      The unisex PATTAxTOMMY capsule collection is inspired by a series of iconic pieces from the TOMMY JEANS archive. Available in adult and kid’s sizes, the collection includes T-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, outerwear, jeans and baseball caps. T-Shirts feature the diaspora message, “GREAT PRINCIPLES, GREAT IDEALS KNOW NO NATIONALITY.” Across the range, a hybrid TOMMY JEANS flag is crossed with a Pan-African flag, which sit above the Patta logo and capsule theme of 'UNITY IS STRENGTH DIVISION IS WEAKNESS’ inspiring positivity and a “love for all” mentality.      As part of this partnership, Tommy Hilfiger and Patta will donate to The Black Archives from Amsterdam, Sistah Space from London, and The Good Neighborhood Collective from Milan – each chosen for their dedication to celebrating Afro-descendants and uplifting their voices. Patta has been a long-time supporter of these three organizations, and through the donations, the Dutch street wear company and Tommy Hilfiger seek to further build on their work to drive awareness, education and empowerment of the African diaspora movement.      For more information about Tommy Hilfiger’s sustainability journey, Make It Possible program and overarching vision to create fashion that “Wastes Nothing and Welcomes All,” visit sustainability.tommy.com.

In conversation with Kailand Obasi Morris

Fashion We had a great time speaking wth Kailand Obasi Morris about his collaboration with ICEBERG.       Please introduce yourself to our readers.   Kailand: Well, to start, my name is Kailand Obasi Morris, 19 years old, grew up in Los Angeles, California, currently living in L.A. to I would consider myself profession wise as an artists just because we say designer or musician, like I'm interested in all of those amazing, great things in our industry. Therefore, I would just give myself the title as an artist. So, yeah, I mean you know family has always been incorporated in some sort of art in one way shape or another. My mother Kai, she’s a fashion designer. My father who is Stevie Wonder, musician, so I got a pretty cool foundation, pretty cool family.     What is one of the most daring things you did recently during lockdown?     Kailand: I would say going out, but that sounds so ignorant right now. I think the most daring thing.. I think the most daring thing was me kind of dabble completely out of my comfort zone and doing a few acting things. May not seem too daring, I like acting as something I just started doing that I was always super somewhat not afraid, but conscious about. Just because, like you know in acting, you really just kind of have to give yourself. You have to be very submissive, just like being Ok, looking foolish, basically. So for me, that was definitely the most daring thing, because I've always been very timid about acting. I'm like a very low key, introverted person. So super super daring.       What would you say is your personal motto, especially nowadays?   Kailand: I mean, my motto, I go, you know for.. And that's like in anything.. I'm really about to get it tattooed on me. It’s like “the world is yours“. I just resonate with that saying so much because, you know, you can do anything you pleased to do in life. I mean, like, nothing's off the table. Nothing is impossible. So, yeah. And that's like my biggest model - “the world is yours“.     What are your upcoming projects for this year?   Kailand: So I mean, right now doing great things. I would say, of course, Iceberg. I have a collection with Iceberg, capsule collection that'll be up pretty soon and I'm very excited about it. A  long way coming. You know, I literally remember walking Iceberg, like, way back six years ago and now designing with James and Paolo, the Iceberg family. That's super surreal. A lot of great cool stuff can’t say any specific. But in television, film production coming out.. I've been working very closely with a lot of my good friends like Pierce Brosnan, Sean Koons on a lot of art sculptures, lot of that cool stuff. So definitely gonna do more installations in the near future and, you know, just galleries, pop ups, what not. What else? I mean, I would say the biggest, the biggest, like tease, when it comes to my work, it's like my social media. Just because I love to, like, tease what I do on my social media, just like drop a little hints and what not. I have a lot of crazy, amazing things coming.     Have you developed any new passions during this lockdown period?   Kailand: New passions? No, not yet I would say. I think I have so many passions already that, you know, developing new ones, maybe not yet, but somewhere in the near future.     What would be your biggest outtake from last year?   Kailand: Definitely, you know, appreciating a lot of smaller things now, I don't want to say smaller things, but just appreciating every single bit of piece to life, your life, other people's lives and just valuing just value what you have a lot of the time. The most plain and simple thing about Covid is like you have to wear a facemask every time you go outside. Like the privilege now that I consider it of like having to have been able to go outside and socialize and communicate with people without a face mask. Like I look at it as a privilege now. So, you know, really just appreciating everything on the scale of everything.     Now we're working on our new issue and we're calling it “Elements“. It's a lot about sustainability, nature and the environment. Tell us about your perspective on this subject and the fashion industry.   Kailand: I wish I had a "Just Water" bottle with me right now. This is like the one time you’ll catch me without "Just Water". I think, like for me, my life is like, you know, I'm all about sustainability and everything that I do, touch. Car - Tesla, water bottle - "just water".    Jaden Smith’s Water company that he partnered with. The bottles are I think 80 percent made of renewable resources, which is awesome. Clothing - “House of Kom“I only use sustainable fabrics, recycled coffee, mushroom leather, pineapple leather. So, you know, when we talk about this iceberg collection, a lot of the nylons that we used are like recycled nylons. So really every piece in my life is like sustainable, environmentally friendly. You know, I think especially in fashion, that's like a big, big just a big push that every fashion house should just be pushing for. Really to be a hundred percent sustainable.     What else can you tell us about the collaboration with Iceberg and the collection? When will it be released?    Kailand: Yes. So it's going to be released in July. You know, a good amount of stores worldwide, which is going to be awesome because, I have clothes, like all over the world. So, you know, I mean, really, with this collection, let's start from the beginning. I was just from a lot of the knowledge I can gain from entering at Dior and working with Kim is like, the one of the things I loved about his appreciation for art and artists is just like so high. So every Dior collection he's collaborating with an artist of some sort, whether it’ll be like, Daniel Arsham, Peter Doig, Amoako Boafo, so you know, with this collection, you know, especially being the very sensitive time of what the United States was in with a lot of, just the systemic racism and police brutality when I was like, now it would be such a beautiful time to incorporate a young black artist into this whole project. Me being a black artist and incorporate with another one I thought that would be awesome. So I was just kind of doing my research on a few people. And I came across this artist by the name of “Vxmee“, and he and I had great vibes together, great vibrations. We were talking. Our ideas were just like flying back and forth so that a lot of all of the artwork in this collection that I did with iceberg, collection that we done with iceberg is by the artist myself, “Vxmee“ and myself, it’s like super awesome. So, yeah, we did that. I'm super happy and proud of that I would say. I mean collaborated with “Vxmee“. We shot the campaign in a very fire location. A lot of the times, like when it comes to clothing, I get inspired by architecture. That's one of my biggest inspiration, is architecture. And I went to this place on my birthday in September, September 2nd. I went to this place and I was like, yo, so fire. Got my iPad sketching ideas just based off of the architecture of this place, and I just came to a full circle moment because we ended up going back and shooting at the location which was super awesome. So a lot of really cool things. I even, I won't say who, but I got the chance to work with a lot of people regarding the music aspect of the campaign, which is awesome. I can't wait for people to see and hear and look at the whole vibe.       What would be your advice to the youth looking up to you?   Kailand: My biggest advice, would really just be like once again, “the world is yours“, right? Nothing's off the table. I would be speaking to people who have been inspired by what I'm doing. I would say just to always keep an open mind, keep an open eye, an open perspective, stay inspired and just create, create what you like. The most important thing really is creating like through what you love.       How was it like designing this collection as you're based in the US and the brand is based in Italy?    Kailand: It was crazy. It was so crazy. I mean, my first collection. I mean, like in the midst of this global pandemic, I'm here in L.A., James, the CD, Paulo Gerani, like the whole team is in Italy, at the factory. We're just like, how could we figure this out? So, you know, I ended up fortunately being able to go to Italy for a week or so. I was in the factory like on my first day - the factory was gigantic. So I had to take it all and, you know, familiarize myself with the surroundings of it. And then we just got to work. James and I were just non-stop, just like getting the ideas down left. And it was so funny because when I was casting this campaign, I didn't get a chance to see the clothing until we were shooting the campaign, which was my first time touching the garments, like seeing it like, you know, like putting it on. Because I love to wear clothes that feels.. I was putting it on for the first time. But I was in Paris working. What I was doing in Paris? In Paris I think I was working with Dior at the time, again with Kim, and we were doing fittings in L.A. because the clothes got shipped to L.A. So I was like constant, like no sleep for a week, not even a week, longer than a week. Face timing my assistant and everybody who was helping out in L.A., while we were we doing fittings and castings and all that craziness. Fly back to L.A. next day, going to the location and shooting the campaign. I mean, there's a lot of work. It's always a a lot of work, but it's like fun. You know, it was my first time. I definitely enjoyed it, so.            We had a great time speaking wth Kailand Obasi Morris about his collaboration with ICEBERG.       Please introduce yourself to our readers.   Kailand: Well, to start, my name is Kailand Obasi Morris, 19 years old, grew up in Los Angeles, California, currently living in L.A. to I would consider myself profession wise as an artists just because we say designer or musician, like I'm interested in all of those amazing, great things in our industry.

VALENTINO GARAVANI ROMAN STUD TOP HANDLE

VALENTINO GARAVANI ROMAN STUD TOP HANDLE

Accessories Maison Valentino presents “Mastery Tales”: a narrative of beauty, creative fervor, passion and tradition that distinguish the extraordinary savoir-faire of Italian artisanship and techniques of the Maison. A series of episodes to discover the timeless excellence and the culture of Couture that identify the most iconic items of the Valentino collection.     Chapter 2 is dedicated to the Valentino Garavani Roman Stud top handle bag, first introduced in Valentino Collezione Milano - SS21 fashion show.     Valentino Garavani Roman Stud is the Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli’s ultimate interpretation of the Rockstud family. A bold yet sophisticated evolution of the iconic stud, which is enlarged in a macro version. A tribute to the bugnato which characterizes the Roman Palazzos, that opens towards the street, allowing confident observations.     The new Valentino Garavani Roman Stud top handle bag, crafted in soft nappa leather, perfectly conveys the romantic punk attitude of the collection as well as Valentino’s craftmanship tradition and care for detail; its tiny silhouette is enriched by a macro quilting and maxi studs.     Every bag requires around 5 hours of work and over a meter of leather to be produced.The leather is treated to acquire its distinctive soft touch and ironed to gain its unique brightness. Details such as the detachable leather strap and the sliding chain in antique brass finishing add characters to the bag’s small silhouette.     Lastly, a total of 28 studs are applied by hand one by one decorating the bag and the leather strap. The iconic Valentino stud has been reinterpreted as if it were placed under a magnifying glass: it evolves and expands. The pyramidal hardware get outsized, muting from signature metallic accents to utmost magnified elements.     As the iconic Valentino Garavani Rockstud accessories are celebrating the 10th anniversary, Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli continues his process of resignification of the iconic codes of the Maison, where reality and dream, high and low, punk and bourgeois, couture and street cohabit. Maison Valentino presents “Mastery Tales”: a narrative of beauty, creative fervor, passion and tradition that distinguish the extraordinary savoir-faire of Italian artisanship and techniques of the Maison. A series of episodes to discover the timeless excellence and the culture of Couture that identify the most iconic items of the Valentino collection.     Chapter 2 is dedicated to the Valentino Garavani Roman Stud top handle bag, first introduced in Valentino Collezione Milano - SS21 fashion show.     Valentino Garavani Roman Stud is the Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli’s ultimate interpretation of the Rockstud family. A bold yet sophisticated evolution of the iconic stud, which is enlarged in a macro version. A tribute to the bugnato which characterizes the Roman Palazzos, that opens towards the street, allowing confident observations.     The new Valentino Garavani Roman Stud top handle bag, crafted in soft nappa leather, perfectly conveys the romantic punk attitude of the collection as well as Valentino’s craftmanship tradition and care for detail; its tiny silhouette is enriched by a macro quilting and maxi studs.     Every bag requires around 5 hours of work and over a meter of leather to be produced.The leather is treated to acquire its distinctive soft touch and ironed to gain its unique brightness.

MUGLER PRESENTS  Spring & Summer 2021 PART 02

MUGLER PRESENTS Spring & Summer 2021 PART 02

Fashion Presented as a metafictional commentary on the fashion show construct, Part 02 of the Spring Summer 2021 collection designed by Casey Cadwallader is a no-holds-barred expression of electric MUGLER energy. Directed by TORSO in Long Island City, New York, a 6.5-minute film questions the linear continuum of a runway presentation, as hyper-charged MUGLER characters exhibit feats of near superhuman strength through stunt doubles, POV cameras and a satirical use of the infinite void.     Applying the tropes of the comic book heroine in the fashion space, Cadwallader gathers personalities from the worlds of cinema, television, music and the arts in an unprecedented casting that challenges traditional expectations of beauty: seen backwards, in fast forward, and upside-down in a collective exploration of the ‘glitch’. From Euphoria’s Hunter Schaefer and Pose star Dominique Jackson to the performance artist Kembra Pfahler, electronic musician Eartheater, cultural commentator Patia Borja and models including Alek Wek, Bella Hadid, Omahyra Mota and Irina Shayk, an armada of unique personas embody the multiplicities of the MUGLER woman in all her power and glory.   Evolving the illusory proposition of Part 01, the second chapter of the MUGLER Spring Summer 2021 collection continues to elevate the structural and proportional play of transparency inherent to the MUGLER legacy. Shape and comfort rise to the fore, as the evolution of fashion technology and materiality expand the possibilities of suspended architectures for trompe l’oeil fabrications that accentuate anatomical curves and erogenous zones with unprecedented ease. Block colours and a pulsing stratum of light wave prints contrast natural skin tones with black, white, sky blue, acid yellow, vermillion and cherry red.   Precision and flexibility are key throughout the collection, as plunging necklines define segmented, second-skin swimsuit tops bifurcated with illusion tulle. Hems seem to float in mid-air. MUGLER denim falls off the hips in slouchy spiral patterns or spliced with recycled, bonded Lycra. Bold-shouldered shirt jackets disappear into a phantom hourglass silhouette, long-sleeved cotton and satin halter shirts frame a daring midriff, and low-slung trousers are slashed down the ankle. Moments of controlled drape appear in ruched tulle pencil skirts, shirred jersey dresses and gathered goddess tops. Deconstructed masculine button-down shirts with open backs fly off the body in stark opposition to a glittering array of iridescent crystal appliqué designs that sculpt harness opera gloves, bodysuits and minidresses in two-tone iridescent topographies. Fused with the season’s laced hosiery stilettos, brightly piped MUGLER x Wolford seamed stockings echo the collection’s sinuous relationship with the human body.     Presented as a metafictional commentary on the fashion show construct, Part 02 of the Spring Summer 2021 collection designed by Casey Cadwallader is a no-holds-barred expression of electric MUGLER energy.

In conversation with Jérôme Dreyfuss

Fashion   We had a great time speaking with designer Jérôme Dreyfuss.     Tell our readers who you are in your own words.   I am a French designer who’s trying to make the people happy. I am deeply concerned by the climate change and I do work hard on trying to change the mentalities to give hope to the new generations and help them to change the world….     What is your first memory of fashion?    I remember Catherine Deneuve. She was the Image of the French women…right after Brigitte Bardot.     Among all the collections you have designed, which one embodies your personality the most?    I think each collection is all little part of what I am, how I feel at the moment I am building it. It is like a picture of me at a certain time.   What gives you confidence?    Love! Who is the one voice that has inspired you the most in your personal life and your career?    The voice of confidence…   What is the most daring thing you did recently and tell us something that is not on your resume.   I had the luck to meet President Macron, and I told him how much I was disappointed about the fact that he is not acting enough on the climate change. I did the high school of music …this is not on my resume!   What is your personal motto?    When you want, you can!   What are your upcoming projects for this year?    I am re-designing my stores and launching a unisex line of bags.   Why designing? What inspired you to embark on a career in this industry?    I am designing because it is the only way I found to express myself as I was young. It was just my way, I started when I was really young as it was really natural to me.   What is your work of art about and what does it mean to you?    To me, Fashion is not art.  I am just proposing my point of view. I am just trying to give happiness and wellness to my clients.     With work you have traveled a lot. What are some of the favorite places you have seen and been to so far and why?    The most amazing was my trips to India. I remember my first time in Delhi like being in Star Wars! Everything was new, the colors, the smells, the feelings…I really fall in love with this amazing country.   I also loved Japan. I am a huge fan of architecture and I must say that I have discovered that the bases of everything I love in architecture is coming from the Japanese culture…   What is your biggest outtake and lesson from last year?    I have learned that I could organize my company in a different way. I have learned to give more trust to my collaborators.   As the theme of our Spring & Summer season is ELEMENTS and it is about sustainability, nature. Tell us about your perspective on sustainability and environment.    I do believe that we have to consume less, that we have to eat less meet, that we have to change the way we are living. It is a huge challenge and I think that my generation has to show the right way to the next generations. I am putting all my energies in this, and I am glad it is finally starting to move a little bit (everybody was laughing at me 20 years ago as I was talking about it….). Vivienne Westwood is for me an example to be followed, she is the most inspiring and clever designer in the fashion industry.     Tell us about your new collection.   For this SS21 collection I wanted to give a wind of freedom. Counterbalance with the general atmosphere related to the global pandemic and allow us to dream and escape. Bright colors and tangy prints for a gipsy universe, dream of the open roads, a nomad’s life, sleeping under the stars… Ready for the trip ?   We had a great time speaking with designer Jérôme Dreyfuss.     Tell our readers who you are in your own words.   I am a French designer who’s trying to make the people happy.
