ETRO UNVEILS THE NEW SPRING SUMMER 2021 ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN

Fashion Joy is an immediate, sudden feeling. It draws a smile on the face; it brings a light to the eyes, and energizes the body. It oozes energy, momentum, and owns distinctive gestures. It knows no time and no place. Models Anna Ewers, Parker Van Noord, Alessio Pozzi and Grace Musase are portrayed by David Sims in the dazzling non-place of a white background in the new ETRO campaign. These are immediate and vitaminic images, which depict a study in the making of joy and vitality: a spark in the eye, the whiteness of teeth or the wind in the hair are enough to convey the message, getting straight to the point. It is the same joy that runs through the collection, a further exploration of ETRO's family lexicon. The pictures intentionally wink at the way we were to define the way we are. If the prints, but also the accessories, are an archive anthology, with imaginative names such as Bandiere da Parata, I fiori del Cielo or L’Albero delle Meraviglie, the images are an obvious homage to a perhaps more carefree decade. Not for ETRO. What remains, in order to evolve, is in fact the joyous urge to mix signs and meanings, the vital freedom in merging worlds, the immediacy of fashion as a pure expression of joy. Yesterday and today.     Photographer: David SimsStylist: Géraldine SaglioTalents: Anna Ewers, Grace Musase, Alessio Pozzi, Parker Van NoordCreative Director: Macs IottiCasting Director: Piegiorgio Del MoroMake Up Artist: Lucia PieroniHair Stylist: Paul Hanlon   Joy is an immediate, sudden feeling.

Samsøe Samsøe for Fall & Winter 2021

Samsøe Samsøe for Fall & Winter 2021

Fashion Week ’Stillness’ is the name of Samsøe Samsøe’s AW21 collection. It’s about aspects of being grounded, seeking stillness in a world where it might be hard tond the calm places that make us into who we are. It is also a re ection of the inspiration trip that thebrand’s design team took this year.     ”This time around, the design team and I took an inspiration trip within the Danish borders, and we ended up in a summer house, spending some time together - growing stronger bonds - and building the collection around the concept of ‘Stillness’. The serene moments of ‘just... being’ is a huge part of this collection”, says Gitte Wetter, Head of Design.     In the Womenswear collection, there is a certain nod towards the Victorian era, with heavy lace dresses in soft, romantic shapes, contrasting with suede and leather, giving the collection a more masculine expression. Other shapes draw inspiration from the late 70’s, mixed with today’s more clean silhouettes.There is a playo between formal and informal, givinga perfect balance of the modern woman’s look and feel.     This season, Menswear references the 70’s with slightly more exaggerated collars, but also the 90’s through oversized, checked shirts - now reworked in more contemporary qualities - which add an extra layer to the always tactile collection. Another strong focus is the relaxed shapes as if playing dress up at home. Soft fabrics, and loosely constructed blazers and jackets give a more laid back feeling this season with wider shapes in both pants and shirts adding to the luxurious and warm feeling.     Hues of sunny yellow, dry orange, brick red, washedout brown and hints of green re ect the draw ofnature and the elements that might be around us. An overall expression that uses long lasting qualities and shapes ensures a cohesive approach for both the Men’s and Women’s collections, as sustainability is always in focus. The result is that the AW21 collection is 75,5% more sustainable, than previous collections. A part of the brands initiative is to be 100% more sustainable by year 2024.     Whether or not it is has a mental or global aspect, the collection is about the state of ’Stillness’. The times we are facing in the world we live in are highlightedand showcased in this collection. Di erent minds, di erent thoughts, di erent possibilities all make us do things di erently and the result is a totally personalinterpretation of what it is, to explore stillness. ’Stillness’ is the name of Samsøe Samsøe’s AW21 collection.

Rains presents digital runway show ANTICIPATE

Fashion Week The ANTICIPATE collection offers a conversation around the expectancy of the next, creating a collection rooted in a prowess for the unkown.     Form and function equalize into a presentation of modern utility, one that need not make unnecessary compromises. Utilitarian tailoring built from heavy PU-coated twill is contrasted to crisp fabrics in parachute-like silhouettes. Voluminous puffer ensembles create security shells, encompassing the wearers like an armor to outside elements. Together, the themes offer a sense of hope in comradery, and a collective fight for the future.        "This season, it was inevitable to take in current world affairs and build a collection that offers a confident contribution to the dialogue. We wanted to build pieces that made people feel strong, collaborative and present. It was through bold silhouettes in a uniform color palette that achieved a sense of certainty in comradery," says Tanne Winter        Shades of a grey armada are presented as a central color palette, only to be interrupted by holographic showpieces and an icy blue for a glimmer of light amongst the collection.     For AW21, Rains references sci-fi storylines, offering a cinematic introduction to the latest runway collection offered up by the outdoor lifestyle brand.     Exploring the act of expectancy-the visceral response to before and after - 30 looks marched their way to the top of the precarious platform, to be met by a water orb hovering in the cradle of open air. Juxtaposed light and dark envelop the collection, offering a mysterious setting to the otherworldly encounter.   The ANTICIPATE collection offers a conversation around the expectancy of the next, creating a collection rooted in a prowess for the unkown.     Form and function equalize into a presentation of modern utility, one that need not make unnecessary compromises.

Off-White™ Reveals Spring/Summer 2021 Collection with Immersive Digital Turnout Called “Imaginary TV”

Off-White™ Reveals Spring/Summer 2021 Collection with Immersive Digital Turnout Called “Imaginary TV”

Fashion Week Yesterday, Off-White™ and its Founder and Creative Director Virgil Abloh hosted a groundbreaking, globally-interconnected digital event to reveal the label’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection. The get together is dubbed “Imaginary TV,” and the interface—custom built for this unique showcase—features an interactive online complex, complete with a series of special performances. Off-White™’s virtual landscape (which will remain online post-event) offers a myriad selection of channels and networks, just like a television set. Each has a specific purpose in demonstrating the concepts behind the collection. Milan-based and international performers expressing a range of artistic practices have contributed to this electronic experience, mixing fashion with frontier-pushing digital innovation. Ultimately, Abloh envisioned this space as a way to contemporarily reflect Off-White™’s pillars: “Imaginary TV” captures a universal approach to creativity by promoting inclusivity and pushing the envelope forward in terms of how the industry, consumers and fans alike interact with one another.     Products highlighted in the digital rooms include: the Off-White™ x Air Jordan collaboration, eyewear, Off-Active athletic clothing, the “Out-of-Office” sneaker, the Spring/Summer 2021 collection’s overall stories and the launch of a new accessory called The Burrow Bag. The Burrow Bag is an evolution of Abloh’s “Swiss” and “meteor shower” concepts; it debuts with a perforated shoulder bag shape, featuring luxurious materials and finished with a handcrafted finesse. This punch-holed graphic treatment is becoming more and more established in the Off-White™ aesthetic canon. Moreover, the shoulder bag on view in “Imaginary TV” is, in fact, already buyable at www.off---white.com and www.farfetch.com.     The rest of the collection, titled “Adam is Eve,” will become available over three product drops between February and May. This delivery-staggering demonstrates Off-White™’s disruptive new business model of presenting collections and immediately following these unveilings with the first drop, whereby the rest of the lineup is released throughout the season. Abloh has created a gender-blended lineup that remains optimistic and idea-diverse, rife with juxtaposed thoughts and interchangeable elements. Length, volume, color and cut are all fluid; this is the first time that Off-White™ has merged its menswear and womenswear design studios, creating a liquidity and a common ground between the two. Print is minimal, but when used, it flourishes; tones are solid and blocked, cutout and lengthened across heightening silhouettes.     “The idea of ‘Imaginary TV’ stems from a modern poetic vision for, and of, the evermore virtual world. It takes a universal and all-inclusive approach. I want to connect and generate a global network, and bring together creativity while catalyzing a range of emotions,” says Virgil Abloh. “We’re living in a world and at a time that is already largely digitally native. Within the collection itself, I wanted to capture what it is to be human at this very moment. Conundrum is OK, glitches are OK, duality is OK, and a dissolution of norms is OK.”     Within “Imaginary TV,” the Spring/Summer 2021 collection is highlighted by live performances and live activations in Italy. These installations and engagements comprised a varied mix of disciplines, lensing different cultures, humanity, artistry, a sense of celebration and self-expression. Talents include Michele Rizzo, Graffiti Milano, Caterina Barbieri, a group of free-climbing athletes, Binta Diaw, Fabio Cherstich, Damiano Afrira and Off-White™’s own skilled artisans.     “Imaginary TV” also presents international performances at various slots throughout the day. Abloh enlisted the help of an international assortment of talent across time zones, furthering this notion of proximity and connection across time and distance. These multidisciplinary talents include: Wallette, Ash Lauryin, Domi and JD Beck, Letizia Galloni, Prince Gyasi, Mdou Mocatr, Liang Biying, and Kiri Okuyama.

H&M launches successful second-hand platform Sellpy in the Netherlands

Fashion Second-hand shopping platform Sellpy - already a success in Sweden since 2014 - is now available in the Netherlands. Sellpy offers customers a wide selection of quality pre-loved fashion from different brands and a flexible, service-oriented shopping experience, making sustainable consumption even more attractive.     Sellpy makes selling and buying vintage fashion easier than ever: customers can choose from a wide range of items, all of which have been checked for quality. To make selling clothes easier, items can be shipped for free* to Sellpy and the whole sales process is taken care of, including the photography of the items and placement in the webshop. Items that cannot be sold will be used for textile recycling.     "We see that the awareness and demand for sustainable fashion is increasing among our customers. We are therefore very happy that with Sellpy we now also offer a platform in the Netherlands where customers can buy second-hand fashion and sell clothes, thus extending the life span," says Susan Krau, country manager H&M Netherlands.     The transition from linear to circular use of textiles is one of the H&M Group's main goals in its work towards a more sustainable fashion industry. Investments in new business models in the areas of rental, repair and re-commerce play an important role in this respect. Through its investment arm H&M CO:LAB, the H&M Group has been investing in Sellpy since 2015.     "We’re excited about Sellpy’s continued international expansion which we support with our investment and strategic partnership. We truly believe in the entrepreneurs and team behind Sellpy and their unique circular business model, which perfectly aligns with our vision to become fully circular," says Nanna Andersen, head of H&M CO:LAB at H&M Group.     "We see a steady growth in demand for sustainable consumption, where second hand is a great option. Every garment bought pre-owned saves resources for our planet. It’s therefore very exciting that we continue to grow, and empower more customers in Europe to live circular”, says Michael Arnör, CEO of Sellpy.

Fashion As part of its Louis Vuitton for UNICEF partnership, Louis Vuitton adds four new colours of the Silver Lockit bracelets and launches its first Doudou Louis.      Louis Vuitton for UNICEF presents four new Silver Lockit bracelets and the Doudou Louis to raise funds for children in need. Perfectly colour coordinated, the new Silver Lockit bracelets come in pastel blue, pink, celadon green, and black. Incorporating recycled silver and organic cotton for the first time, the Silver Lockit bracelets feature the iconic padlock as well as the LV signature circular logo. In its rainbow of pastel colours, Doudou Louis, the Louis Vuitton for UNICEF teddy bear appears for the first time in textile format. Made from organic cotton, the Monogram printed textile covers the teddy bear, with embroidered Monogram flowers making up Doudou Louis’ blue eyes. Worn solo, stacked along one’s wrist, or even as snug tiny necklaces on Doudou Louis, the Silver Lockit bracelets and teddy bear are collector’s items for all admirers alike.    In continuation of its #MAKEAPROMISE campaign, Louis Vuitton is committed to raising awareness and funds for UNICEF to support the most vulnerable children around the world. By purchasing the Silver Lockit and Doudou Louis, clients will have the opportunity to help support UNICEF’s work on providing access to water, sanitation, nutrition, education, health and protection services to the most vulnerable children. This also includes support of UNICEF’s COVID-19 emergency response efforts to recover and to reimagine a world fit for every child in this unprecedented global health, economic, and social crisis.   The Silver Lockit is inspired by the tumbler lock invented by Georges Vuitton in 1890 to protect clients’ most precious belongings. Created in 2016, it was chosen as a symbol of sealing one’s promise to help children at risk. The four new Silver Lockit bracelets retail at $465 US, $100 US of which is donated to UNICEF and the Doudou Louis retails at $955 US, of which $200 US is donated to UNICEF.   Since the launch of the Silver Lockit, the partnership has raised nearly $13 million US for UNICEF.

This also includes support of UNICEF’s COVID-19 emergency response efforts to recover and to reimagine a world fit for every child in this unprecedented global health, economic, and social crisis.   The Silver Lockit is inspired by the tumbler lock invented by Georges Vuitton in 1890 to protect clients’ most precious belongings. Created in 2016, it was chosen as a symbol of sealing one’s promise to help children at risk. The four new Silver Lockit bracelets retail at $465 US, $100 US of which is donated to UNICEF and the Doudou Louis retails at $955 US, of which $200 US is donated to UNICEF.   Since the launch of the Silver Lockit, the partnership has raised nearly $13 million US for UNICEF. The Silver Lockit bracelets and Doudou Louis launch on 29th January on louisvuitton.com and in selected Louis Vuitton stores worldwide.   Join us. #MAKEAPROMISE UNICEF does not endorse any company, brand, product or service.
