GUCCI releases the new Jackie 1961

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.

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.

Ninamounah releases the new Fall & Winter campaign

Ninamounah releases the new Fall & Winter campaign

Fashion Meta·mor·pho·sis: a morphological mutation, a time of dramatic change in form and appearance, affecting the core of one’s being. After the completed metamorphosis the transformation becomes visible. From larva to cocoon, the organism finally enters its final stage. A time of sexual maturity.     Shapes and proportions carry both robust stillness and fluid movement, like a metamorphosing lobster. Adapting to its surroundings, our muse represents an infinite of possibilities. Motor references are visible in office wear, a shirt transforms into a high cut bodysuit. Draped looks are liquified into momentous designs.     Traditional shirting and tailoring comes with an exoskeleton of boning, creating dominant silhouettes and strong shoulders. A layered suit and a sleeveless puffer coat reference a protective shell still in the process of growth. Capturing a freedom of spirit, stereotypical staples are reinterpreted with a luxurious punk attitude. A matching shirt and tie combo paired with a hybrid of a pleated skirt and tailored trousers.     A disfigurement of the artisanal tradition. Pinstripe blues and blacks, herringbone browns and green and grey checks come in pure virgin wool and luxurious silks. Reinterpretations of the label’s key pieces, the garments are a natural extension of their archival counterparts. Ninamounah does not aim to reinvent itself drastically every new season, but chooses to slowly grow with time, opting to perfect and reinterpret its own core pieces. Pieces are constructed from deadstock fabrics otherwise destined for destruction or landfill. Our leather is reconstructed from discarded leather designer couches, meaning the skin has had a previous life. A hybrid of past and future.     CAMPAIGN: Taking Metamorphosis to its extreme, drastic proportions take solid shape in the FW20 campaign. Looks fit both men and women, and are moulded and reworked into elongated silhouettes. Tailoring should be like a second skin, growing and maturing together with the body over time, possibly taking on surreal shapes. Suiting is stretched to fit a model larger than life. The cast mostly consisting of family members of the team is captured in a village in the Netherlands, placing emphasis on the intimate and local bonds that are becoming increasingly important as we slow down our pace and look to put the familiar in new contexts.     TEAM: Photography WOODY BOS Art Direction FERDI SIBBEL Beauty DAVID KOPPELAAR   Talents: PUCK (Elvis Models) CHAIMA (Vein Agency) SIDHARTHA (Vein Agency) VALENTINE LOTUS MASUMI MARJOLEIN PIETER FOS     FW20 will be available at selected retailers: LN-CC (Online), Elevastor (Paris), Nolm (Sydney), Shyness (London), Raesthete (Shanghai), Worksout (Seoul), The Elephant (Tokyo), Megusta (Utrecht) and Margreeth Olsthoorn (Rotterdam).

Urban Protection by CP COMPANY

Fashion C.P. COMPANY Creative director from 1997 to 2001, Moreno Ferrari shared Massimo Osti passion for functionality and utilitarianism over trends.  This inspired idea led Moreno to create the iconic Urban Protection collection, a landmark in brand's history.  Launched in 1998, the collection was designed to provide practical yet highly innovative and conceptual ideas for life in an urban environment. The main aim was to create a whole line of items, which could provide protection if necessary.     One of the most recognisablepieces of the Urban Protection line was the 'Metropolis Jacket’: made in 1998, the Metropolis Jacket featured a removable anti-smog face mask alongside details such as a multi-pockets system, designed to contain documents, mobile phone or pocket PC.     In 2019, C.P. COMPANY decided to remaster the Metropolis Jacket and the Urban Protection range, as a part of the NEXT LANDSCAPE FW020 collection; the overarching concept, developed by designer Paul Harvey, that represents a hopeful image of a future urban environment, in which nature is given the space to grow back vitally and spontaneously amongst the essential architectural forms of the city.     All Urban Protection clothes are characterized by a C.P. COMPANY detachable badge. The fabrics range include high performances textiles such as Dyneema, GoreTex Xenia and Infinium, and Taylon in addition to the brand's classic Proprietary Technology fabrics as Pro-Tek and C.P. Shell.     If the Mille Jacket was linked to a bucolic and romantic world, the Urban Protection is its evolution in the realistic urban context: if the iconic lens represents a link with the landscape and its observation, the mask and details of the Urban Protection garments represent instead the rhythm of the new city and urban landscapes. The Mille Jacket was born as the jacket of the romantic traveler, the Metropolis is the jacket of the metropolitan man. The Mille Miglia is a rural journey, Urban Protection is a journey on urban rails. C.P.
