Iris van Herpen, the creative direction duo Maria Bodil and the creative studio Post Neon debut collaboration by unveiling the photo-based series ‘Symbiosis’

Fashion For the ‘Symbiosis’ series, Iris van Herpen, Maria Bodil and Post Neon reference the symbiotic relationship with nature by returning to the roots of our existence; the fungal network. The collaboration aims to visualise the miraculous lacery of interconnectedness from the fungi empire that weaves a dialogue between the terrestrial and the underworld.   The concept of the creation stems from the notion of symbiosis. In these rarefied times, an increasing number of people turn to the natural world, a place considered to be substantial and reliable.   The creative duo envisioned an ‘alternative reality’ in which nature and technology co-exist in harmony, nourishing each other in a sacred balancing act. The complex but elegant structures of mycelium network take centre stage in this alternate world. By exploring 3D generative shapes and textures, the creative studio Post Neon enhanced this utopian reality. Flourishing out of the surrealistic landscape, the models pose the questions: could technology and nature exist in a state of symbiosis?   This synergic collaboration comes as a natural evolution of Iris van Herpen’s multidisciplinary approach to the art of fashion and matches seamlessly with Maria Bodil’s practice of creating with leading designers. Maria Bodil is a new creative direction duo working at the intersection of photography, film and design. The duo consists of Lieve Maria Eek and Marthe Bodil Vos, Post Neon, a young creative studio based in Amsterdam, explored alternate realities, physical and non psychical spaces in the post-production of this series.

Westfield Mall of the Netherlands officially opened

Fashion Today the doors of Westfield Mall of the Netherlands officially open. A unique, fully covered shopping and experience mall of 117,000m² with a four-star service level. In this way, Westfield gives entrepreneurs the space to start selling safely under the current circumstances and in accordance with the applicable guidelines. The planned festivities will be postponed to a later time, when the restaurants, cinema and other leisure activities can also be opened. Westfield is the first comprehensive shopping experience of this size in the Netherlands.       Westfield Mall of The Netherlands is a unique, innovative shopping, dining, leisure and entertainment destination in the heart of the conurbation, Leidschendam. From brunch to shopping, from a movie to extensive dining, experience is central at this mall. Completely different from other shopping centers in the Netherlands, partly due to the arrival of various flagship stores, the high-quality architecture, distinctive catering establishments, special events and a wide range of leisure. Experience is key at Westfield, so everybody sat around the table with all the retailers to create a unique experience within the Mall.     The Gallery is also a completely new concept for the Netherlands, where visitors can find an attractive and unexpected mix of designer and lifestyle brands such as Ace & Tate, Skins Cosmetics, Smaak Amsterdam and Miccy's Jewelz on 3,000 m². Ranging from a special selection of boutiques, lifestyle shops, coffee shops and pop-up stores, this revolutionary concept in the Dutch retail world makes it possible to create the intimate atmosphere desired by consumers. A modern reinterpretation of a classic shopping street.       The fact that Westfield Mall of the Netherlands offers a wide range of flavors is also reflected in the F&B range. The brand new Eat Theater features a mix of local and well-known eateries. In addition to spacious seating, good coffee and kiosks, ten restaurants are also located, including The Butcher and pizza hotspot Toni Loco. The prominent centerpiece of the dining and entertainment space is the elegant gold hanging decorations, which create an enchanting centerpiece. The thirty golden curtains consist of no less than 12,251,200 links and have a total surface of 3,020 m2. In other words, a 235 km long chain, approximately the distance between The Hague and Maastricht.   In addition to the impressive Eat Theater, the Mall also contains the regional destination for daily groceries thanks to the Fresh! food market. You can also find bakery at Robèrt by master Patissier and Master Boulanger Robèrt van Beckhoven, known from 'Heel Holland Bakt', , and many others here. The heart of Fresh! is the special kitchen in which famous chefs will soon give cooking workshops. The chefs work with seasonal products from the entrepreneurs in Fresh! to inspire visitors in a culinary way. The refrigerated lockers for groceries characterize Westfield Mall of the Netherlands, which is fully equipped.       Westfield Mall of the Netherlands is a place that is part of the local community. A place where people want to spend time, come together, seek connection, discover new experiences and above all enjoy. With a huge Kinepolis cinema, O'Leary's with bowling, Gamestate arcade hall and the Instagram museum Youseum under one roof, Westfield Mall of the Netherlands really offers an exceptional location in the Netherlands. The restaurants and leisure destinations will open as soon as the measures allow.   “We are extremely proud that we can support our retailers in these difficult times by opening our doors. A grand opening with all our 280 hotspots is not possible unfortunately , but we hope we can have one later in this year, ”said Bart van Twillert, Country Manager The Netherlands.   Although Westfield is a diverse destination in retailers, catering and leisure, the design concept is based on the idea of ​​one movement, one design, one identity. This is reflected in the Mall's impressive interior and exterior, designed by MVSA Architects under the direction of Roberto Meyer. For example, the facade is inspired by a voile, a silk scarf, which is draped smoothly over the building like a second skin. The shape of this voile is the starting point for a spectacular facade design that brings the new and existing buildings together.   Westfield is the only global B2B and B2C brand for retail, leisure, entertainment and hospitality destinations. With the opening in the Netherlands, it has eleven centers in continental Europe. Ten centers have already been opened in France, Sweden, Poland and the Czech Republic.

Louis Vuitton presents Zanellato/Bortotto Lanterns

Accessories “A journey East, a summer dinner with friends, a walk on the beach. We imagined this project as a collection of memories woven into a lantern. An intimate and personal object to keep with you to gently illuminate precious moments.“Zanellato/Bortotto.     Lanterns, Zanellato/Bortotto’s latest Objet Nomade, continues the design duo’s experiments with leather weaving that originally began with their Mandala Screen. Each Lantern, complete with its blown glass light dome, diffuses the geometric yet poetic pattern inspired by beehives, creating a warm, romantic touch when light.     Enclosed within the Lantern’s honeycomb-patterned cage of interwoven strips of Louis Vuitton leather, a rechargeable LED light and frosted glass bulb cast delicate shadow patterns, softly illuminating all spaces. The portable light also features details inspired by Louis Vuitton handbags, including the carrying strap and the three brass “feet” that protect the base’s leather covering from scratches. Inspired by long summer nights spent dancing under garland lights, the Lanterns, in delicate tones of pistachio and red berries, make for desirable and joyful evening allies.     Veritable nomadic companions, the Lanterns are available in two sizes and are designed for use both inside and outside. “A journey East, a summer dinner with friends, a walk on the beach. We imagined this project as a collection of memories woven into a lantern. An intimate and personal object to keep with you to gently illuminate precious moments.“Zanellato/Bortotto.     Lanterns, Zanellato/Bortotto’s latest Objet Nomade, continues the design duo’s experiments with leather weaving that originally began with their Mandala Screen.

Givenchy presents the CUT-OUT bag

Accessories Givenchy presents the Cut-Out, a forward-looking unisex handbag that distills the essence of Creative Director Matthew M. Williams’ vision for the House.     Distinctive for its sculptural, graphic lines, the Cut-Out nods to the Givenchy archives and ethos, notably the House’s V-shaped signature, here deftly deconstructed and counterbalanced by a squared base and a supple shoulder strap with striking silver embellishments. Like the latest reinterpretation of the Antigona, the Cut-Out is made of sophisticated, Box-finish leather. Various treatments span discreet matte or embossed textures evoking exotic scales with matte, metallic or vintage croc-effect finishes. Its modern allure is defined by the designer’s flair for innovative hardware signatures, as evidenced by the bold, cubic 4G chain, and the precedence of craft-driven flourishes, for example on a black leather version that is fully embellished with small silver eyelets that have been placed by hand.     The Cut-Out is available in Small with or without the sinuous 4G chain, and in an ample Large size that makes a distinctive, fashion-forward statement. Colors include classic beige, tan or black, as well as directional shades of baby pink, purple and red.     Prices: from 990€ to 1,390€ for the small style; 1,990€ for the large.     The Cut-Out will drop starting on February 26th, 2021, in Givenchy stores worldwide and on givenchy.com.

Fashion + Design Festival Arnhem 2021 (FDFA)re- examines the PURPOSE of the current fashion system

Exhibition Arnhem, March 24, a new year, and a new world due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, a time when people are looking en masse for a new form of reflection and immaterial possession through meaning, or PURPOSE.     Fashion + Design Festival Arnhem this year, together with designers and artists, investigates in a hybrid festival format how the desire for meaning manifests itself in fashion and design. And how the fashion system is reinventing itself.     The festival is all about PURPOSE, but certainly also about REPURPOSE and a reset of the fashion system in a contemplative way. The festival zooms in on the way in which fashion and product design responds to the changing focus from material to immaterial happiness and meaning, based on the ten dimensions.     The ten dimensions refer to domains such as consumption, equality, ratio, emotion, empathy and are derived from the Tree of Life of the Kabbalistic teaching, with the aim of finding a perfect balance through a combination of these dimensions, allowing visitors to see that contemporary ideas about meaning, sustainability and the fashion system, are not black and white, but rather look for a new balance.     FDFA offers a high-quality hybrid festival from June 3 to July 3, 2021, where online and offline events alternate and complement each other. Every week a number of dimensions from the overarching theme 'PURPOSE' are highlighted. FDFA offers depth on the theme every week by means of videos and hybrid events. The programming takes place mainly on Thursdays and Fridays in June and is organized in collaboration with partners of the FDFA.   The digital program consists of an opening week with designer talks on the theme PURPOSE within the ten dimensions. Throughout the month, the FDFA presents digital programs, such as video interviews with the talents within the dimensions, how they create videos about the creative process and craft with local Arnhem designers and substantive visual installations. The FDFA lets experts talk about the hacks for a sustainable, upcycled wardrobe, and where clothing comes from.     The FDFA gives a seminar on PURPOSE & RE-PURPOSE and within the themes talks are hosted about sustainable projects such as The Linen Project and Fashion For Good about the future of circular design and new biobased materials. The Linen Project is investigating whether it is possible to start the local production of flax, linen and (linen) products in a sustainable manner in the Netherlands, so that the quality and origin of the products can be brought back to a local level. On the interactive parts, workshops are given in crafts such as screen printing and knitting. During the Fashion Month, the final exam students of ArtEZ University of Arts and Rijn IJssel Creative Industry will show their graduation collections.   The physical program of the FDFA will consist of local, small-scale events with the local partners, a tour along different dimensions through the city, which can be taken alone, and a shop exhibition ArtEZ Toile de Luxe will be photos of ArtEZ Fashion Design Bachelor students. exhibited at various locations in the city center and the Modekwartier. Together with the PURPOSE exhibition, these form a route through the city. The program is continuous in the month of June.   The FDFA fulfills a regional platform function in the field of fashion, which links regional professionals and organizations in fashion and design and communicates current fashion and design themes. The role of the designer in the interaction with the user is central to the festival.

And how the fashion system is reinventing itself.     The festival is all about PURPOSE, but certainly also about REPURPOSE and a reset of the fashion system in a contemplative way.
