FENTY releases new 10-20 Sunglasses

Accessories Communicating that FENTY audacity and design flair for which our eyewear has become known, we introduce two new styles of sunglasses for fall: the ultra-glamorous Screenplay and larger-than-life Director’s Cut.     Titled Screenplay on account of its playful lens design and old Hollywood glamour, the first new style is a classic, feminine cat-eye shape. Of course, we couldn’t leave it as a classic cat-eye without breaking a few design rules! The signature FENTY twist comes in the lenses, which extend beyond the inner border of the frame and wrap around the outside edge, adding a flash of lens color to the profile. Screenplay comes in two colorways: Jet Black with Baby Blue lenses or Shiny Ivory with Solid Green lenses, complete with FENTY monogrammed tips.     The second style is a reinterpretation of our bestselling Blockt sunglasses, following the upside down frame design with lenses cutting out just shy of the frame, creating side slits at the edge in contrast to the overhanging lens of Screenplay. Named Director’s Cut on account of the sliced lenses, this style is quintessentially FENTY with its oversized shape and uncompromising design attitude. Director’s Cut is also available in two colorways: Jet Black with matching lenses or Shiny Ivory with Solid Green lenses, gold detailing and monogrammed tips.     The campaign was captured by Arnaud Lajeunie.   Screenplay and Director’s Cut are available now at FENTY.com Communicating that FENTY audacity and design flair for which our eyewear has become known, we introduce two new styles of sunglasses for fall: the ultra-glamorous Screenplay and larger-than-life Director’s Cut.     Titled Screenplay on account of its playful lens design and old Hollywood glamour, the first new style is a classic, feminine cat-eye shape.

In conversation with Per Axen

Fashion Continuing their work towards a more responsible design process, Weekday is proud to launch a 100% recyclable and 100% biodegradable* denim set, as part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Jeans Redesign project.   Jeans have always been a core Weekday product, they are the foundation of most wardrobes, they’re timeless, genderless and an everyday basic but unfortunately the processes that goes into making them often creates both waste and pollution. Through this project, Weekday along with 50+ other brands, uses new solutions and processes to ensure garment durability, material health, recyclability and traceability when creating denim pieces.   Made from sturdy blend of post-consumer waste cotton and organic cotton; Klean Jeans and Milton Denim Jacket were designed to last. Using as little material as possible to create the pieces, the Weekday design team looked into every detail, making sure they used the best, most durable and sustainable options possible. The ambition is now that both pieces will last for a very long time before being passed on or recycled when they reach end of life with their first owner.   “For us, this isn’t a one off , we are now looking at how we can be more e cient and responsible within all our design practices.” says Per Axen, Responsible Denim Designer at Weekday. “We really had to think about every detail, such as trims, fabric even packaging, and now that we have done this, we will look into how we can take these learnings and bring them into future designs. For example, we are super excited about the fact that we have now started using post-consumer/industrial waste cotton in all our denim products for SS21”.   20% post-consumer waste cotton 80% organic cotton, 100% recyclable, 100% biodegradable* - Available October 22   We had a delight speaking with Per Axen about the collection.     How important do you think sustainability is becoming, and how do you incorporate it within your brand?   Sustainability is a huge focus for us. When it comes to being a responsible business, there’s alwaysmore to be done. Today we are testing and investigating new ways of production, for example producing more collections on demand, instead of saturating the market with too many products. We also have a collection that we produce yearly called Re-made, which we create with unsold pieces from older collections.   Jeans have always been a core Weekday product, they are the foundation of most wardrobes, they’retimeless, genderless and an everyday basic but unfortunately the processes that goes into making them often creates both waste and pollution. Through this project, with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, we were able to truly shift from a linear process into a circular design process. In a circular model, resources stay in use for as long as possible before being recycled into new products, the new products also stay in use as long as possible before being recycled, again and again.   Moving forward we will continue to find innovating solutions on how to create a more responsible assortment, using less water and no chemicals.       Who are you and what is your profession?   My name is Per Axen and I’m the Responsible Denim Designer at Weekday. I’m originally from Varberg, a small town on the Swedish west coast. After studying fashion design at The Swedish School of Textiles in Borås I started working as a designer for both men and women. My focus has been on denim during the last six years. I live in Stockholm, Sweden, and have been at Weekday since 2011.     What can we look forward to from Weekday to come in the future?   The aim is to use the learnings from this project to become fully circular in all our production processes, in the future.   We are now looking at how we can be more efficient and responsible within all our design practices. With this project, we really had to think about every detail, such as trims, fabric, fit and even packaging, and now that we have done this, we will look into how we can take these learnings and bring them into future designs. For example, we are super excited about the fact that we have now started using post-consumer/industrial waste cotton in all our denim products for SS21     How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short- term? How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion?   For us, we have used this time to reinvent how we do what we do. Because of limitations due tolockdowns, we’ve really had to be more creative than ever when it comes to how we create collections and how we share them with our customers. For example, we have been working more with our Store Made Studio collections, where we take current unsold products and rework them in fun ways to create unique pieces as well as sharing with our customers tips and tricks, they can use at home to reinvent their wardrobe. We’ve also had to operate more flexibly across the value chain, for example break down processes between product teams and rethink the need for office meetings and travel.     Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your resume.   I have a creative studio where I do textile experiments. I share the space with a furniture designer, some artists and another designer. It’s a creative and fun place to be. I also just bought a wooden boat, so I’ll be spending a lot of free time fixing it up and sailing.     What is the most important thing to you when thinking of the future?   I think a lot about being able to make positive and sustainable change within the fashion industry. A lot of the work we do now, at Weekday, is about fundamentally challenging the perception of waste, from an unwanted thing to a valuable resource. I think this is the future, thinking in a circular way in all that we do.     What has been a longtime dream of yours? After already achieving so much.   I feel like I’m living one of my dreams, but I guess the big dream is freedom. Freedom in all that I do;economic freedom, creative freedom, freedom to live and work from anywhere. I think culture and creativity are an essential part of sustainable development because innovation needs the space to implementing new ideas. My dream is to spend more time in my studio or other places where I can be free to test different ideas.     Tell us more about the new campaign: THE FUTURE IS CIRCULAR.   We really wanted to join the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Jeans Redesign project because circular design is the future. We are therefore very proud to launch this 100% recyclable and 100% biodegradable (when you remove the buttons) denim set.   With this project we are shifting from a linear process into a circular design proces, which feels fantastic. In a circular model, resources stay in use for as long as possible before being recycled into new products, the new products also stay in use as long as possible before being recycled, again and again.   Since denim is one of our core categories it felt natural for us to start with that and to be in the forefront, when designing our denim assortment. This project has been a great challenge, because we have learned so much. When designing our next denim assortment, we have taken a lot of learnings from this project, to make sure we design and develop denim products that will last for many years, and at the same time have as low of an impact as possible on the environment. To give you one example: in all denim, starting SS21 we will use post- consumer/industrial waste cotton. We think about all the details, how can we be better – not only through the Redesign project but with everything we do.

Patrizia Pepe's new season's essentials

Fashion Patrizia Pepe turns the spotlight on garments and flagship accessories for Autumn/Winter, bringing a new exclusive combo to the centre of the stage: Coats + Boots.    A city serves as a dynamic and multi-faceted background, framed by modern architecture and historic buildings, where the Patrizia Pepe woman becomes the protagonist of a versatile and unconventional style, combining the season's iconic outerwear with different models of biker & combat boots.   Essential wardrobe elements, coats and trenches for the cold months reinterpret masculine codes with a contemporary twist, transforming comfortable and protective fabrics into highly recognisable silhouettes that reflect the very essence of the brand, along with its feminine and aware aesthetic.    Minimal, clean-cut lines of single-breasted coats discover the warmth of wool cloth and bouclé wool in tenuous nuances, whereas more structured garments, like the trench and military coats, play with dark tonalities, alternating technical chalkstripe fabric with faux leather blends.   The glam-rock spirit of Patrizia Pepe resounds in the sparkle of finishes and metal applications: gold buttons, silver eyelets and Fly buckles reflect the free and irreverent spirit of a Gentle Rebel who lives the metropolis by following the path of elegance in movement.   The distinctive twist of each look arises from the matching of outerwear with new city boots featuring a bold and assertive design, made of soft calf leather and developed in different models like the biker, the combat and Beatles boot as well as the platform ankle boot. High impact details stand out on decisive profiles, such as lug soles, Fly decorations impressed on rubber, fluorescent accents and metal finishings that once more emphasize the allure and attitude of Patrizia Pepe's new classic contemporary essence.     Patrizia Pepe turns the spotlight on garments and flagship accessories for Autumn/Winter, bringing a new exclusive combo to the centre of the stage: Coats + Boots.    A city serves as a dynamic and multi-faceted background, framed by modern architecture and historic buildings, where the Patrizia Pepe woman becomes the protagonist of a versatile and unconventional style, combining the season's iconic outerwear with different models of biker & combat boots.   Essential wardrobe elements, coats and trenches for the cold months reinterpret masculine codes with a contemporary twist, transforming comfortable and protective fabrics into highly recognisable silhouettes that reflect the very essence of the brand, along with its feminine and aware aesthetic.    Minimal, clean-cut lines of single-breasted coats discover the warmth of wool cloth and bouclé wool in tenuous nuances, whereas more structured garments, like the trench and military coats, play with dark tonalities, alternating technical chalkstripe fabric with faux leather blends.   The glam-rock spirit of Patrizia Pepe resounds in the sparkle of finishes and metal applications: gold buttons, silver eyelets and Fly buckles reflect the free and irreverent spirit of a Gentle Rebel who lives the metropolis by following the path of elegance in movement.   The distinctive twist of each look arises from the matching of outerwear with new city boots featuring a bold and assertive design, made of soft calf leather and developed in different models like the biker, the combat and Beatles boot as well as the platform ankle boot.

REDVALENTINO SPRING/SUMMER 2021 COLLECTION

Fashion A new wind is blowing. It’s time for transformation, for discovering new levels of identity and new meanings, for changing perspective while looking at what is familiar and well known. REDValentino takes up the challenge and embraces the Spring/Summer 2021 season with a new attitude: free, independent, a bit radical.   REDValentino hits the streets, takes some risks, experiences a new bravery. The attitude gets a tad erce, irreverent, fearless. The brand’s aesthetic and stylistic codes remain the same, but they are exaggerated, blown up. The “so RED” bows, ruf es and ounces nd new proportions, new contexts, new pairings. They loose their familiar delicacy to become eye-catching symbols of a rediscovered independent femininity.   Silhouettes and lengths are reconsidered for a new look, which exudes street realness. Ruf es punctuate mini nylon frocks, the classic eyelet is magni ed on breezy dresses, point d’esprit tulle is matched with cotton t-shirts and oversized sweatshirts. Outerwear pieces with a technical look counterbalanced the ethereal femininity of tulle ounced designs, while oversized ruf es add a couture-like touch to jersey tops. Denim is manipulated to shape eye-catching attires with a customized,artisanal and very personal attitude. The restrained, concise palette of black, white and powder pink also welcomes vibrant touch of neon orange and acid green.   The ultra softness of the “Knot Me Up!”, a nylon shoulder strap embellished with a maxi bow detail, contrasts with the urban graphic look of the platform sandals featuring a puffy strap or a signature bow. “I think this season, it was really time to bring REDValentino into the street, exploring a new sense of authenticity and independency,” says the creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli. “I wanted to show a new, disruptive take on the brand’s signature aesthetic codes, delivering a wardrobe for cool, free, independent girls.” A new wind is blowing.

MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK RUSSIA

Fashion Week Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia is taking place on October, 19-23 at 8 Moscow-based venues simultaneously. Shows from the capital will be topped up with livestreams from four Russian cities. Around 60 designers and fashion houses will showcase their new collections, and all the shows and presentations will be streamed in the social media and at partner websites.   Due to the current epidemiological situation in the capital, the organizers of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia decided to move this season’s shows from Manege to independent venues with a focus on livestreams. “Our objective is to prevent crowding and comply with every letter of the sanitary guidelines introduced because of the coronavirus infection spreading. Today, safety of our participants and guests is our number one priority. At some venues, we’re going to manage the process so not to change the spirit and efficiency of the event by the glove-mask mode,” says Alexander Shumsky, President of Russian Fashion Council and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia.   The upcoming season is going to be unique, as MBFW Russia schedule is going to unite livestreamed shows from different cities and countries. This time, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia will include special shows by Russian designers, based in St. Petersburg, Sochi, Krasnodar, and Yakutsk. Moreover, a joint show by Indonesian designers livestreamed right from Jakarta will take place during the event. Other announcements on the schedule include fashion houses from Argentina, Peru, UK and USA. “The new COVID reality in 2020 offered us an unprecedented opportunity to experiment with the Fashion week format. MBFW Russia is going to become the first fashion week to livestream the shows from 6 locations throughout the globe. This is both technologically and organizationally challenging, and nevertheless, we’re starting this project with different cities and countries this season. This format is going to have high potential not only during the closed skies period,” Alexander Shumsky is sure.   Presentations of the new collections will be available for viewers from all over the world at various online platforms and media websites, as well as at VK– the major social network of Russia and CIS.
