PORSCHE X BOSS FALL/WINTER 2020 CAPSULE COLLECTION

Men Porsche and BOSS come together for a fourth season to unveil a trend-driven capsule of menswear designs for Fall/Winter 2020, directly inspired by the aesthetics of a Porsche sports car.   Hoodies, denim, and jersey join tailoring and leather in the new collection, which, combined with bold use of color, delivers an even younger and more modern feel to the successful partnership than before.   Highlight pieces include a matte black outerwear jacket that reverses to a glossy red puffer design, a zip-through knit cardigan with channel-quilted nylon front panel, and drawstring waist pants finished with racing stripes at the pockets.   A mercerized cotton hoodie, branded glossy leather sneakers, and a perfectly cut T-shirt with stripe details all create a relaxed, yet effortlessly confident mood.   The signature BOSS attention to detail is evident throughout. Alongside curved seams inspired by the Porsche silhouette, other details also refer to the iconic sports car design. The key pocket inside every jacket on the left-hand side corresponds to the position of the ignition, while the racing stripe taping instantly recalls the distinctive backlights.   Impactful black, dark olive, and red anchor this season’s color palette, and are reflected in theFall/Winter campaign film, featuring the Porsche Taycan. Presenting the new collection alongside an all-electric car is another nod to the spirit of innovation at the heart of both brands.

C.P. Company presents the Metropolis Dyneema

Fashion C.P. Company’s iconic Metropolis jacket has been remastered as part of the brand’s Urban Protection range, which was first developed in 1998 with a collection of innovative and conceptual garments that could be transformed to protect the wearer. The very first piece in the original Urban Protection line, the Metropolis Jacket defines an overarching concept of NEXT LANDSCAPE that inspires the collection.      A theme developed by C.P. Company design team for the FW020 collection, NEXT LANDSCAPE represents a hopeful image of how nature infiltrates the urban landscape.  To launch the jacket, the brand presents a film interpreting this theme through the lens of James Massiah, a contemporary poet and musician whose work dissects the relationships between an ever-changing city and its communities.   The visual realization of NEXT LANDSCAPE confronts current tensions between a metropolitan existence and a renewed natural way of living, exploring the duality of urban spaces and their organic elements. Concepts of urban decay and regrowth touch on contemporary feelings of hope through Massiah, as his visionary words offer an honest take on the endlessly evolving environment of the city.    “NEXT LANDSCAPE is about the inevitability of change and the passage of time. In doing so, it places a special significance on those things, which throughout time and in the midst of change, remain constant.”   The FW020 Metropolis jacket has been recreated in Dyneema, a weatherproof proprietary material with the highest strength–to-weight ratio of any man-made fibre; approximately eight times that of high-strength steel. This incredibly light yet resilient fabric is combined with an elaborate system of pockets (a signature C.P. Company feature), an adjustable face mask and detachable branded ID badge detail – unique to the Urban Protection range.   Launching as part of a reimagining of the Urban Protection series, honouring a landmark in the brand’s history, the Metropolis Dyneema will be available from 7thSeptember from cpcompany.com, cpcompany.co.uk, C.P. Company flagship stores and exclusive selected retailers worldwide.   watch their new short film here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2YV71Z-VPU C.P.

In conversation with Damon Baker

Photography Photographer Damon Baker known for signing with industry powerhouse  by the time he turned 18 years old. He has worked with the likes of Taylor Swift, Nicole Kidman, Jared Leto to name just a few. We had a pleasure speaking to him about his career, passion and life.      Damon, please tell us what does photography mean to you? Photography to me means freedom. It allows me to go deep within my emotions and draw from that place to translate my pain and darkness into something beautiful. Without that, I’m not sure I’d ever be able to understand myself.     Your work is mostly in black and white. What is behind your love of black & white photography? I’ve simply just always felt a deep connection to black and white photography. I think it relates to my emotions also, and that I don’t feel happy all the time nor do I feel sad all the time. I live in a state of inbetween, so color doesn’t feel honest to me, grayness does.     Your photography is really edgy and unique, but you also started experiencing with color. The timeless shots you did of Hailey Bieber show your different side. Tell us more about that other side of tour work. I feel that I usually experiment with color when I am in love with somebody in my life. The colors still have a desaturation to them because like love, it is a temporarily feeling of happiness, there is still a slight darkness there.     Which was your favourite project you’ve worked on so far and why? You’ve worked with many artists and celebrities in your career. If you had to choose your favorite one you’ve photographed, who would it be and why?  Every picture that I have worked on is a favorite, honestly. Because with each picture comes a connection and a self expression and that truly is the most beautiful feeling in the world And, every person I have created with is unique and holds it’s own special story. I couldn’t choose because even if the experience wasn’t the best, it still is a story that I’ve experienced and created with.       You started your career very young and have done an impressive amount of work for your age. Was photography always something you wanted to do in life and what are your plans for the future?    I started working professionally at seventeen so I’ve learnt a lot in life but with that I had to also grow up very quickly and handle myself in the world, in different countries, with different people. I am thankful for all of this knowledge but it hasn’t been easy and it has consumed my entire life and everything that I know. I’m not sure I could do anything else at this point, it’s almost as if I was born to do this. I’d like to experience more in the future and expand on my art, hopefully growing with it.        You’re an advocate for Suicide prevention. Can you tell us more about your involvement.    I just truly want people to not feel alone in their emotions or to be ashamed of their emotions. I have learnt that without so much of my pain, I wouldn’t be half the artist I am. I want to inspire others to accept this about themselves also and to use creativity as a tool to self express freely and truly.   I think it’s important for people to know that everything I say is how I feel and I can only truly speak for myself in the hopes that it will connect with how others are feeling too. I feel we are almost made to believe that our vulnerabilities are a weakness. I disagree completely with that, I enjoy to feel, I respect my pain, without it I don’t think I’d be half the artist that I am. I channel my emotions and my vulnerabilities into my creativity and into my connecting with other people. I believe that is strength. Weakness, in my opinion, is denying yourself to feel. I speak out about my journey with my own mental health simply because I am part of the crisis. I have been, for a very long time, through sexuality, identity, anxiety, depression, not knowing what to do next. Every little part of life that feels hard, I’m part of, we all are. I found my therapy through my art and my creativity so it is not my job as an artist to sugar coat my reality, it is my job to share my voice and inspire.     Can you tell us more about your recently released project  First Impressions with Netflix? First Impressions is my directorial debut. I wanted to create an extension from my still pictures. I feel my still imagery holds so much emotion and I wanted to explore that in moving image. First Impressions is an exploration through my eye that challenges the ideology of how himself and the humans in his world are viewed. Are we perfect? Not at all. Society has manipulated the idea that gaining noticeable success suggests that all your problems are solved. Honestly, they are mostly amplified. I created this series to give a platform for my subjects to express their true selves, without judgement, in a safe space, through art.  (@Netflix @Kristine_Froseth) To be continued…     You can follow his work on instagram @Damon_Baker Photographer Damon Baker known for signing with industry powerhouse  by the time he turned 18 years old.

Its sleek calfskin body features an ample central compartment with dual zip closures on medium and large styles, with an inner card pocket, vertical side straps with turn-lock fastenings, twin top handles and a removeable shoulder strap for two modes of wear (hand-held or over-the-shoulder). A small version likewise accommodates all the essentials, with a zipped compartment, a card pocket and an adjustable, removable strap for cross-body wear.   Timeless finishes for the Antigona Soft include classic black and pearl gray. Seasonal statements feature a graphic houndstooth version that echoes ready-to-wear looks, and a version in extra supple calf leather embossed with a crocodile finish. An elevated version in two-tone, hand-pleated leather offers a dressier option.   This new variations will debut in Givenchy boutiques worldwide on September 18th, 2020.

GUCCI releases the new Jackie 1961

Accessories The Gucci Autumn Winter 2020 women’s and men’s fashion shows saw the reintroduction of one of the House’s most famous styles — the Jackie Bag — imbued with new relevance.      First created in 1961, the hobo bag, with its elegant curved shape and distinctive gold hardware closure, became emblematic of the ‘60s and ‘70s jetsetter lifestyle for which the House was known. Most notably, Jackie Kennedy was photographed with the bag so frequently it became known simply as “The Jackie.”   A key member of the Gucci bag family for many decades, the Jackie has been redesigned several times over the years. Its newest incarnation, designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, is the Jackie 1961. A fusion of his fascination with archival codes and contemporary vision, the bag re-emerges to transcend traditional accessories classifications with its non-binary attitude. In fact, Alessandro Michele debuted the Jackie 1961 at HIS men’s Fall Winter 2020 fashion show. Reduced in size and worn by both men and women in diverse looks — tailoring, grunge and clothes with shrunken proportions — the House’s recognizable bag assumed an entirely new character.   Sourcing a vintage Jackie bag from his personal archive, Alessandro Michele proposes three different sizes — medium, small and mini — rendered in a new pared down silhouette. Clean lines bring the focus to the unique piston closure and the rich leather itself. All styles of the Jackie 1961 are available in black and red leather as well as GG Supreme canvas with Web stripe. The small and mini versions feature an extended palette that includes neutral-colored python as well as candy pastel hues of lilac, butter, light blue and soft pink. A longer, removable shoulder strap enhances the new Jackie’s flexible personality and versatile practicality.     The Jackie 1961 joins the Dionysus, the Marmont and the Horsebit 1955 as a Beloved Line of the House.  The Gucci Autumn Winter 2020 women’s and men’s fashion shows saw the reintroduction of one of the House’s most famous styles — the Jackie Bag — imbued with new relevance.      First created in 1961, the hobo bag, with its elegant curved shape and distinctive gold hardware closure, became emblematic of the ‘60s and ‘70s jetsetter lifestyle for which the House was known. Most notably, Jackie Kennedy was photographed with the bag so frequently it became known simply as “The Jackie.”   A key member of the Gucci bag family for many decades, the Jackie has been redesigned several times over the years.

Zalando celebrates its 10th anniversary in the Netherlands in collaboration with Ronald van der Kemp

Fashion Zalando celebrates its tenth anniversary in the Netherlands with a campaign in which Ronald van der Kemp has upcycled ten items from ten Dutch brands to ten 'couture looks'.      Zalando Netherlands is celebrating its 10th anniversary in style and is launching a new campaign in collaboration with ten Dutch brands, including Scotch & Soda, G-Star, WE Fashion and MUD Jeans. Of these ten brands, the ten most iconic items of the past decade were upcycled by the world's first sustainable couture fashion house, RVDK Ronald van der Kemp. The campaign "Story of a Decade" takes a look at fashion from the past, today and the future through ten upcycled couture looks.   Ten years ago, zalando.nl went live, two years after the founding of Zalando in Berlin. What started as a start-up selling shoes online has grown into Europe's largest online fashion and lifestyle platform in just ten years. Today Zalando attracts more than 34 million customers in 17 countries. Ten years ago, the first Dutch brands immediately joined Zalando, including G-Star and Scotch & Soda. Today they are also part of the anniversary campaign "Story of a Decade".   "With this campaign we want to put our partnership with local Dutch brands in the spotlight. After all, we can only achieve our ambition to become the starting point for fashion in Europe in collaboration with our brand and retail partners. With the upcycled looks, we not only want to celebrate the achievements of the past ten years, but also take a look at the future of fashion, of which sustainability is an important part,"said Jacintha De Graaf, Head of Zalando Benelux.   Starting today, Zalando will be putting local Dutch brands in the spotlight for ten days. The following ten Dutch brands are participating: Scotch & Soda, WE Fashion, G-Star, Mud Jeans, Fabienne Chapot, Stieglitz, Kings of Indigo, Goosecraft, ETQ, Denham. For each of these brands, Ronald van der Kemp created 10 couture looks with leftovers from his own previous collections, tailored to ten special Dutch talents. This collaboration resulted in daring and surprising looks with a high couture content.   Ronald van der Kemp, designer: "Zalando is taking important steps in these times of change in which sustainability and diversity are central. We think it is great to be able to contribute to this. For this anniversary, Zalando asked us to create a celebration of personality, diversity, creativity and sustainability. With these looks we try to enlarge the personalities of the influencers and give the clothes a look that suits our times."   Ten local talents wear the couture looks for this campaign and embody a personal vision of fashion in the future. From talented make-up artist Celine Bernaerts, to international model Nella Roz, ballet dancer Christian Yav, ex-top model Linda Spierings, artist and actress Zoe Love Smith and non-binary actor Thorn Vineyard.     We had a great chat with Ronald about the collaboration.   How did the collaboration with Zalando and you start?   Since starting with my label one of our main things was sustainability and diversity in fashion, and now that’s a hot topic. We share these values, thus Zalando approached us to work on this project. And I love the idea of working with existing materials and to make it into something unexpected or new. To make it look different, or give it new content. That’s also why we worked with many different influencers on this project, to inspire people to be proud of who they are and to express themselves.     Where was fashion for you 10 years ago and where do you see it 10 years from now?   I think my biggest thing is that people should be more individual, discovering who they are. I think 10 years ago people were  following someone that might not even be real (think filters etc.), wiping away their own personality in that sense, I hope that now and I think that people are waking up and should not try to hide, come out and embrace it. I think that is what's needed now and people are exploring that more than ever before. Also now you can reach so many people internationally with social media channels, in a way that can be both good and bad, but when people become more individual, that makes the world more exciting, especially in fashion.  I think in fashion we should produce way less and be very creative, we should also find ways to sell fashion and not neccesarily product. You can also sell a dream or an experience, think of perfumes for example. Selling a dream is definitely something bigger than just a product.     See more about the campaign: https://www.zalando.nl/zms/10jaarzalando/   #Zalando10Jaar   Zalando celebrates its tenth anniversary in the Netherlands with a campaign in which Ronald van der Kemp has upcycled ten items from ten Dutch brands to ten 'couture looks'.      Zalando Netherlands is celebrating its 10th anniversary in style and is launching a new campaign in collaboration with ten Dutch brands, including Scotch & Soda, G-Star, WE Fashion and MUD Jeans.

The campaign "Story of a Decade" takes a look at fashion from the past, today and the future through ten upcycled couture looks.   Ten years ago, zalando.nl went live, two years after the founding of Zalando in Berlin. What started as a start-up selling shoes online has grown into Europe's largest online fashion and lifestyle platform in just ten years. Today Zalando attracts more than 34 million customers in 17 countries. Ten years ago, the first Dutch brands immediately joined Zalando, including G-Star and Scotch & Soda. Today they are also part of the anniversary campaign "Story of a Decade".   "With this campaign we want to put our partnership with local Dutch brands in the spotlight. After all, we can only achieve our ambition to become the starting point for fashion in Europe in collaboration with our brand and retail partners. With the upcycled looks, we not only want to celebrate the achievements of the past ten years, but also take a look at the future of fashion, of which sustainability is an important part,"said Jacintha De Graaf, Head of Zalando Benelux.   Starting today, Zalando will be putting local Dutch brands in the spotlight for ten days. The following ten Dutch brands are participating: Scotch & Soda, WE Fashion, G-Star, Mud Jeans, Fabienne Chapot, Stieglitz, Kings of Indigo, Goosecraft, ETQ, Denham. For each of these brands, Ronald van der Kemp created 10 couture looks with leftovers from his own previous collections, tailored to ten special Dutch talents. This collaboration resulted in daring and surprising looks with a high couture content.   Ronald van der Kemp, designer: "Zalando is taking important steps in these times of change in which sustainability and diversity are central. We think it is great to be able to contribute to this. For this anniversary, Zalando asked us to create a celebration of personality, diversity, creativity and sustainability. With these looks we try to enlarge the personalities of the influencers and give the clothes a look that suits our times."   Ten local talents wear the couture looks for this campaign and embody a personal vision of fashion in the future. From talented make-up artist Celine Bernaerts, to international model Nella Roz, ballet dancer Christian Yav, ex-top model Linda Spierings, artist and actress Zoe Love Smith and non-binary actor Thorn Vineyard.     We had a great chat with Ronald about the collaboration.   How did the collaboration with Zalando and you start?   Since starting with my label one of our main things was sustainability and diversity in fashion, and now that’s a hot topic. We share these values, thus Zalando approached us to work on this project. And I love the idea of working with existing materials and to make it into something unexpected or new. To make it look different, or give it new content. That’s also why we worked with many different influencers on this project, to inspire people to be proud of who they are and to express themselves.     Where was fashion for you 10 years ago and where do you see it 10 years from now?   I think my biggest thing is that people should be more individual, discovering who they are. I think 10 years ago people were  following someone that might not even be real (think filters etc.), wiping away their own personality in that sense, I hope that now and I think that people are waking up and should not try to hide, come out and embrace it. I think that is what's needed now and people are exploring that more than ever before. Also now you can reach so many people internationally with social media channels, in a way that can be both good and bad, but when people become more individual, that makes the world more exciting, especially in fashion.  I think in fashion we should produce way less and be very creative, we should also find ways to sell fashion and not neccesarily product. You can also sell a dream or an experience, think of perfumes for example. Selling a dream is definitely something bigger than just a product.     See more about the campaign: https://www.zalando.nl/zms/10jaarzalando/   #Zalando10Jaar

It is also one of MR PORTER’s best-performing luxury brands, having first launched alongside Vaughn's 2015 blockbuster Kingsman: The Secret Serviceand has since delivered 12 commercial seasons to date. The second 'costume to collection' of Kingsman launched in 2017 with Vaughn's follow-up film Kingsman: The Golden Circle; the upcoming The King’s Man'costume to collection' will mark the 13thseason in this collaboration.   In The King’s Man, history's worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather together to plot a war to wipe out millions; one man must race against time to stop them. This latest installmentintroduces new cast members Mr Ralph Fiennes, Ms Gemma Arterton and Messrs Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou and Charles Dance.   The costumes in The King’s Manreflect the timeless style and functionality of tailoring and military wear from the film’s period, set during WW1, with silhouettes and styles made relevant for contemporary dress. As DirectorMatthew Vaughn says,“Classic tailoring is hard to beat and we wanted to illustrate that no matter what decade you are in, if you step into Kingsman,  you will come out looking great. For the latest ‘costume to collection,’ we embraced the time-honored materials and heavier weaves of the era, which often hang so much better than modern fabrics. We also incorporated luxury casual wear pieces that embrace the same Kingsman sophistication, but in more every day, wearable styles.”    Comprising of 170 pieces in total, this Kingsman collection has been co-created with award-winning costume designer Michele Clapton and will launch on 9September, followed by a second, edited drop of The King’s Man‘costume to collection’ in line with the film’s theatrical release on 26February 2021.    Many of the original Kingsman categories and partner brands feature within the collection, including: Kingsman original tailoring and knitwear; Turnbull & Asser shirting; Cutler & Grosseyewear; George Cleverleyshoes; Drake’s ties and pocket squares; London Undercover umbrellas;Deakin & Francis cufflinks and small accessories; Corgisocks; William Lockieknitwear; Lock & Co. Hatters; Higgs & Crick glassware and desk accessories by Smythson of Bond Street.  Additionally, MR PORTER will debut new products and partner brands including a writing instrument from Montblancand a limited-edition timepiece from Jaeger-LeCoultre, exclusive to MR PORTER from July through to the end of September.   Ms Michele Clapton, Costume Designer, says: “I’m thrilled to have worked with Matthew and the MR PORTER team in incorporating the costumes into viable men’s wear pieces that look as appropriate in the film’s period, as they do in contemporary settings. There’s a great tradition to the ‘costume to collection’ of Kingsman, first realized and founded by my contemporary and friend Arianne Phillips in the first two films. I’m proud to move forward the tradition, while taking the Kingsman story back to its origins.”   Mr Sam Kershaw, Buying Director, MR PORTER says, “With The King’s Man, we’ve had an opportunity to play with new categories and styles that fit quite naturally alongside the modern tailoring and luxury wear of the Kingsman brand. With each new film, we have grown the collection in novel and organic ways, partnering with new and existing brands and are thrilled with the result. We can’t wait to see our customer response when the latest collection launches on MR PORTER in September, through to the film’s release in February.’    MR PORTER will launch the latest collection on 9 September with an exclusive sartorial trailer of The King’s Man, a stylish teaser to the film’s 26 February release.
