Bottega Veneta's Spring campaign is a vision of hedonistic aspiration

Fashion Anchored in sensuality and pure luxury, Bottega Veneta’s Spring 2020 campaign is a vision of hedonistic aspiration. Creative Director Daniel Lee, together with photographer Tyrone Lebon, continue their view of an endless summer. The eternal signifier of elevation and luxury. Idly floating through time. Sun. Sea. Pleasure. The faint ‘click’ of a lens shutter in the distance. Paparazzi poised for a glimpse. Top deck. Carefree sensuality unfolds. Calm. Casual. Confident. Featuring models Mica Argañarazand and Edoardo Sebastianelli. Cold chains warm against sun kissed skin. Weightless leather staples bend and slouch. Earthy tones and bold pops of colour. Endless blue sky bleeds to coral and violet. Opulent jewels and sequins glitter under evening fireworks. A day of indulgence draws to an end, only to be relived the next.

Louis Vuitton presents Pre-Fall 2020

Fashion Fashion is a novel. And the Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2020 collection embarks on a narrative journey where the garments tell their own tales. These characters from their wardrobe set the scene for our days, our moods, our lives. Thismeeting of periods, stylistic movements and anachronistic combinations brings to life a rich cast of costumes. In such a ‘wearable library’, each outwrites its own chapter made up of romantic monologues. Peculiar dialogues between stylistic rebellion and ne crafts-manship. An account of sportswear’s encounter withtailoring. Taking the cultural references even further, Louis Vuitton has adorned one of the collection’s t-shirts with the original cover from William Peter Blatty’s 1971 cult science-fiction novel The Exorcist. To illustrate this collection – a term that works just as well with fashion as it does with literature or on the big screen – the House’s muses proudly take to book covers or posters as protagonists, fitting perfectly into Louis Vuitton’s history and brilliantly embracing therole of adventurer. for more go on louisvuitton.com Photographer Collier Schorr   Fashion is a novel. And the Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2020 collection embarks on a narrative journey where the garments tell their own tales.

Tommy Hilfiger reveals the Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collaboration

Fashion Tommy Hilfiger is pleased to reveal the Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collaborative collection co-designed by iconic American designer Tommy Hilfiger and six-time Formula OneTM World Champion and global brand ambassador for TOMMY HILFIGER men’s, Lewis Hamilton.The fourth collaborative collection between the American designer and British racing driver makes positive strides forward in sustainable practices and embraces the notion of “Style For All” - a belief that great style erases all boundaries in gender, age, ethnicity and body type. The Spring 2020 TommyXLewiscollection will be available on a gender-neutral tommy.com page and in select TOMMY HILFIGER stores and wholesale locations globally starting February 16, 2020. Fans of the brand can visit tommy.com from January 21, 2020 for a sneak peek of select styles that can be added to wish lists before the collection becomes available globally. In the lead-up to the collection’s launch, two unique pieces will be released online, providing a taste of the greater Spring 2020 collection’s aesthetic. The utilitarian TommyXLewis backpack will drop on January 28, 2020 and the TommyXLewis flag crew neck sweater will drop on February 5, 2020.  The Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collection fuses two worlds: the brand’s strong menswear heritage with Lewis’ streetwear style, celebrating iconic designs that embody the modern American wardrobe. Loyalty sits at the heart of the Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collection, and is reflected in pieces that nod to classic archive styles. Unexpected detailing, such as reversibility, adds function to classic outerwear silhouettes; new fits are seen on hoodies and cargo pants. Military blues and greens blend with neutral tones and neon pops, infusing the classic tracksuit, bomber jacket and field jacket with a modern edge. The Spring 2020TommyXLewis collaborative collection is more conscious than ever, with over 75% of the apparel featuring sustainable elements, including 100% organic cotton. Sorona®, which is made from a plant-based fiber, was used as a sustainable alternative to down.

Napapirji reveals Infinity. The first circular, 100% recyclable jacket

Napapirji reveals Infinity. The first circular, 100% recyclable jacket

Fashion Blazing a trail in circular innovation, premium casualwear brand Napapijri today unveils Infinity, its firstcircular, 100% recyclable jacket embodying Napapijri’s mission to design a circular future for fashion. The first jacket of its kind, Infinity has been three years in the making. Its main breakthrough comes from an intensive, synergistic effort to innovate the way in which fashion impacts the environment through the employment of recyclable materials and circular economy models. Infinity’s main material innovation is its mono-material composition: its filling and trims are made fromNylon 6, while its fabric is made from ECONYL® Regenerated Nylon, a high-performance nylon 6 yarn recycled from discarded fishing nets and other waste materials. The use of one material allows for an easier recycling process - the jacket can enter the recycling machine as it is - and fibres are upcycled without losing any of their original characteristic or quality, which means that ECONYL®: Regenerated Nylon can be recycled again and again. By building Infinity using Nylon 6, Napapijri has created a virtuous circle where the jacket can be recycled and reimagined infinitely. The project marks a decisive step in Napapijri’s quest for innovative solutions in circular design. AsNapapijri’s Senior Marketing Director, Vicki Bohlbro, explains: “As a brand whose origins are firmlyplaced in the beautiful alpine landscape, the safeguard of nature has always been on top of our agenda. Now more than ever, we are aware of the pressing issues we are collectively asked to address. We have chosen to do so by pioneering the future of fashion with Infinity, a jacket that embodies our efforts to combine design, sustainability, and innovation to inspire a shift in the role ourindustry has to play in the preservation of the planet and its people through circularity”. To close the loop and make the innovation truly circular, Napapijri has developed a unique digital take-back programme through which the jacket can be returned and recycled. When purchasing Infinity, customers will be invited to register their jacket online through a unique identifier. In order to encourage mindful consumption, customers will have the option of returning their jacket only after two years from purchase. Infinity will then be processed into new yarn and new products. Upon returning the jacket, customers will receive a 100 Euro voucher to be used at napapijri.com for the purchase of their next Infinity product. “Napapijri is the first brand to take a jacket back to be recycled into new ECONYL® material thanks toour unique Regeneration System,” says Giulio Bonazzi, CEO of Aquafil (the makers ofECONYL®). “So, when the jacket reaches the end if its life, it is only the beginning. This is a real first.” Blazing a trail in circular innovation, premium casualwear brand Napapijri today unveils Infinity, its firstcircular, 100% recyclable jacket embodying Napapijri’s mission to design a circular future for fashion. The first jacket of its kind, Infinity has been three years in the making.

Filling Pieces debut their first full collection

Fashion Week Marking the departure from their reputation as a footwear brand, Filling Pieces return to Paris with a virtual runway showcasing their first full collection. The 27-look presentation consists of eyewear, bags, accessories, small leather goods, apparel and of course, footwear. Founder and creative director Guillaume Philibert commented that he is “beyond excited and extremely proud of the collection to be shown in Paris this week”, labelling it “The best to-date”. Without needing to access a show, consumers as well as buyers can visit the FP showroom and view the AW20 SPIRIT collection modelled by the likes of Nick Goulden, in the form of a pre-recorded runway beamed onto the walls. The concept of SPIRIT as a theme stems from the belief in a fifth element bonding earth, fire, water and air. Spirit also represents the desire to understand the unspoken bonds that unite humanity. Each element is interpreted with a unique design direction throughout the collection. Continuing the theme, Filling Pieces have commissioned Makers Unite to produce several pieces for the RTW AW20 collection. The Amsterdam-based organisation nurtures the creative talent of refugees, helping them to integrate into society. A topic which resonates deeply with FP’s brand heritage.

Givenchy Fall & Winter 2020 men's ready to wear collection

Fashion Week An innate ability to interpret tradition with spontaneity is the key to new elegance. Self-expression is paramount, permitting moments of unbridled opulence and psychedelia within the everyday. Clare Waight Keller liberates the Men’s Fall - Winter 2020-21 collection with an intimate ode to the modern man, adorned. The tenets of the New Age drifter imply a penchant for collecting, embellishment and artifice. The subcontinental style of the 14th Maharajah of Indore (1908 - 1961) is a key visual cue for the season’s symbiotic relationship between clothing and jewellery. In the 1930s, he travelled to Los Angeles from India, where he fell in love. The fearless aristocrat embraced Modernism and elements of the West throughout his life and spent his days draped in pearls, gemstones, and precious metals. His influence immerses the collection in a lavish hedonism, juxtaposed by the fetish remix of a sleek future wardrobe. Elegant hardware evolves the silhouette of slimline Givenchy tailoring, as double-breasted blazers and nipped coats fasten with brooches, kilt pins, and fob chains spinning with charms. Wrapped shirts and gilets mimic their formality, whilst a contrasting suit lapel, jewel-toned latex layers and a zipped cummerbund subvert classic proportions. Horology and lapidary sketches become totemic prints on stretch tulle and jersey tops, informing flourishes of bullion thread and crystal embroideries on Haute Couture topcoats. Injecting toughness, glossed leather trousers, oversized patchwork knits and boxy shirt jackets echo the sleek nocturnal attitude of chrome-capped, square toe boots worn under a bootcut pant. In hand, the giant Antigona Soft carry-all is crafted in polished calfskin with woven toile or rich shearling panels.

Sorry I'm late!

Music Sorry I'm late! Allow me to introduce myself ; my name is Asma Emy El Ghalbzouri and i am the Music and Culture editor for Numéro magazine Netherlands. As we strive to make up for lost time when it comes to music we would love to give you a recap and a small taste of all thats coming in 2020.   Let's start at the beginning and honor some of the most amazing festivals this summer. Mojo has been a big player in Holland for some time now and Lowlands has been their pride and joy. Although the festivals features quite a bit of hip hop acts,it didn’t stop them from wanting to dabble in a full hip hop festival and with great success if you ask us. WOO HAH is a splendid gathering in the south of Holland with a wide selection of hip hop’s latest and finest.   Mysteryland never ceases to disappoint either. A wide variety of house,edm and techno djs, all of them being household names in their genre, grace the immaculate and beautifully decorated stages for energetic sets. I have always had a soft spot hardstyle and hardcore. it is the most fascinating part of Dutch culture and grew to be a worldwide phenomenon. Defqon being one of the coolest and most celebrated of them all really blew me away this summer.   We also visited some festivals abroad in a region that is finally celebrated and honored for its amazing musical talent ; North Africa. We have choosen to explore Morocco and the country has stolen our musical hearts. We spoke to different established and emerging artists and we were mesmerized. Loco Dice, Chromeo and Yesin Bey played Oasis festival and I was so delighted to find out that Dave’s mother is from Moroccan jewish decent. I remember walking the streets of New York back when I used to be a hairstylist and got to assist backstage at the seasonal hectic fashion frenzy also known as fashion week. Chromeo blasting in my ears with help of revolutionary item called the ipod. Dj Kicks (remix) is one of the coolest albums out there and i will fight you for it.   Moroccan dj’s Yasmean, Dris Bennis aka Casa Voyager and African kings Art Comes First played immaculate sets and took us through a magical journey that embodies progressive Africa at Oasis festival.As the night progressed Walshy Fire,Art Comes First and Chromeo decided to share a stage and played a back to back which I will forever cherish as one of the most enchanting musical moments in my life.   Atlas Electronic gave us hedonistic and gypsy vibes. Dj Gan Gah showed up and out as he plays a set featuring well known edited chaabi and reggada songs. I must say he is one of my favorite discoveries yet! Born in Morocco and now residing in Brussels,this Moroccan powerhouse mixes Moroccan folk music in techno and house edits making it possible to enjoy at any music festival. I would suggest you check out his Habib Tronics on Spotify,its the new wave chaabi music he created just for our enjoyment. Zohra Idrissi aka Gypzee seranedes us under a star filled sky with the sweetest funky songs. She reminds me of a young Erica Badu. Sassy and lyricly on point. This Moroccan beauty, who lives in London, has slowly but surely making her way in music and this time blessing us with this beautiful performance in this magical country she calls home as well.   The interviews with all these amazing artists and more are featured in our music and culture special about Morocco which will be posted in 2020!   We lavishly resided in excellent care at Riad 144 in the old town of Marrakech as owner Jean Witho opened his heart and home to wandering artists and reporters. This Riad has a few of the most exciting and beautiful rooms I have ever seen. Each one with a different theme displaying different sides and styles of Morocco. The Berber room displaying beautiful amazigh art or the more “modern” room if you will with African contemporary pieces. Tobias the turtle roams free in the communal area just to make sure all the guests have a good time and will join you for your afternoon tea or beautiful glass of wine.   We have some great interviews with legendary djs, producers, rockstars and rappers making its way to online and print. We spoke to the movers and shakers when it comes to innovation in sound, venues, managing artists and festivals. We had drinks with emerging artists and went to heaps of listening parties to share in their new found excitement.   We can't wait to share more and to inspire you to listen to great artists and visit different places around the world to change your “backdrop” as you dance the night away.

Mojo has been a big player in Holland for some time now and Lowlands has been their pride and joy. Although the festivals features quite a bit of hip hop acts,it didn’t stop them from wanting to dabble in a full hip hop festival and with great success if you ask us. WOO HAH is a splendid gathering in the south of Holland with a wide selection of hip hop’s latest and finest.   Mysteryland never ceases to disappoint either. A wide variety of house,edm and techno djs, all of them being household names in their genre, grace the immaculate and beautifully decorated stages for energetic sets. I have always had a soft spot hardstyle and hardcore. it is the most fascinating part of Dutch culture and grew to be a worldwide phenomenon. Defqon being one of the coolest and most celebrated of them all really blew me away this summer.   We also visited some festivals abroad in a region that is finally celebrated and honored for its amazing musical talent ; North Africa. We have choosen to explore Morocco and the country has stolen our musical hearts. We spoke to different established and emerging artists and we were mesmerized. Loco Dice, Chromeo and Yesin Bey played Oasis festival and I was so delighted to find out that Dave’s mother is from Moroccan jewish decent. I remember walking the streets of New York back when I used to be a hairstylist and got to assist backstage at the seasonal hectic fashion frenzy also known as fashion week. Chromeo blasting in my ears with help of revolutionary item called the ipod. Dj Kicks (remix) is one of the coolest albums out there and i will fight you for it.   Moroccan dj’s Yasmean, Dris Bennis aka Casa Voyager and African kings Art Comes First played immaculate sets and took us through a magical journey that embodies progressive Africa at Oasis festival.As the night progressed Walshy Fire,Art Comes First and Chromeo decided to share a stage and played a back to back which I will forever cherish as one of the most enchanting musical moments in my life.   Atlas Electronic gave us hedonistic and gypsy vibes. Dj Gan Gah showed up and out as he plays a set featuring well known edited chaabi and reggada songs. I must say he is one of my favorite discoveries yet! Born in Morocco and now residing in Brussels,this Moroccan powerhouse mixes Moroccan folk music in techno and house edits making it possible to enjoy at any music festival. I would suggest you check out his Habib Tronics on Spotify,its the new wave chaabi music he created just for our enjoyment. Zohra Idrissi aka Gypzee seranedes us under a star filled sky with the sweetest funky songs. She reminds me of a young Erica Badu. Sassy and lyricly on point. This Moroccan beauty, who lives in London, has slowly but surely making her way in music and this time blessing us with this beautiful performance in this magical country she calls home as well.   The interviews with all these amazing artists and more are featured in our music and culture special about Morocco which will be posted in 2020!   We lavishly resided in excellent care at Riad 144 in the old town of Marrakech as owner Jean Witho opened his heart and home to wandering artists and reporters. This Riad has a few of the most exciting and beautiful rooms I have ever seen. Each one with a different theme displaying different sides and styles of Morocco. The Berber room displaying beautiful amazigh art or the more “modern” room if you will with African contemporary pieces. Tobias the turtle roams free in the communal area just to make sure all the guests have a good time and will join you for your afternoon tea or beautiful glass of wine.   We have some great interviews with legendary djs, producers, rockstars and rappers making its way to online and print. We spoke to the movers and shakers when it comes to innovation in sound, venues, managing artists and festivals. We had drinks with emerging artists and went to heaps of listening parties to share in their new found excitement.   We can't wait to share more and to inspire you to listen to great artists and visit different places around the world to change your “backdrop” as you dance the night away.
