LOEWE launches the new Anagram Jacquard handbag collection

Accessories Designed by Jonathan Anderson, the ‘Anagram jacquard’ collection sees the LOEWE anagram appear as a pattern and a standalone icon across ve of the house’s bag archetypes: the Hammock, Balloon, Cubi, Horseshoe and the new Anagram tote. The collection weaves the icon into a new, canvas fabric using a special double-warp structure to provide extra de nition and a tactile, 3D effect to the unique hues of anthracite and ecru.     Originally designed in 1970 by Spanish painter Vicente Vela, who took inspiration from the folded metal of branding irons used to mark the leather of cattle, the anagram in the shape of four ‘L‘s has become emblematic of LOEWE’S identity ever since. The design has undergone several changes over the years. In 2013, when Jonathan Anderson joined LOEWE as creative director and undertook an extensive rebranding, the existing baroque style of the anagram received a modern refresh, creating a cleaner, sharper symbol that has been incorporated in product design and across all communications since.     Classic yet contemporary, the Anagram jacquard collection introduces a pattern of repeating anagrams across the fabric of Hammock, Balloon and Cubi bags. With its soft, body-friendly form, the latter in particular takes full advantage of the comfort and practicality offered by the lightweight, yet durable, canvas jacquard, and the adjustable leather shoulder straps available in two lengths.     Horseshoes and Anagram totes offer a different approach, presenting the kaleidoscopic emblem as a standalone icon in the centre of the bags. Intricately hand-crafted by the artisans of LOEWE’s ateliers in Spain, the Anagram jacquard collection is available in the complimentary colourways of ecru with tan calfskin trim, and anthracite against matt black calfskin. Each piece is nished with LOEWE ‘Made in Spain’ branding embossed in gold on the inside of their leather straps, reminding us of its heritage, and the history behind it.     The Anagram jacquard collection will be available from 11 February, 2021.     #LOEWE #LOEWEAnagram Designed by Jonathan Anderson, the ‘Anagram jacquard’ collection sees the LOEWE anagram appear as a pattern and a standalone icon across ve of the house’s bag archetypes: the Hammock, Balloon, Cubi, Horseshoe and the new Anagram tote.

In conversation with Leo Brancovich

Fashion Last week we had a delight speaking with Leo Brancovich who works as head of design at G-STAR RAW, ad we spoke about their newest Exclusives by G-STAR RAW collection.       How is designing clothing for MotoGP & NASA different than designing fashion collections? It’s one thing to design with a function in mind, its completely different to explore the abstract beauty inherent in purely functional design. What we do at G-Star is to make “costume” out of the deconstruction, and subsequent reconstitution, of garments taken from our unique archive.   How important is sustainability for your design and how do you make your designs more sustainable? To us sustainability is not just a trend, it is really embedded in everything we do. When it comes to design, the ultimate goal is to design in “closed loops”. That means using only sustainable materials, clean chemistry and ensuring that garments are designed for reuse. Today, 90% of all materials we use is sustainably sourced and when it comes to our cotton we are now at 99%. In 2018 we presented the world’s first Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold denim fabric through Our Most Sustainable Jeans Ever. The innovative fabric contained 100% organic cotton and was dyed using zero harmful chemicals while not wasting a single drop of water. We have been building on this innovative fabric ever since and in 2025, 20% of our collection will be made from similar C2C certified fabrics. By continuously expanding our sustainable offer throughout our collections, we want to make it easier for our consumers to make a sustainable choice.   Additionally my aim as a designer is to provide a design language with longevity, expressing clear encapsulations of taste and style that move beyond fleeting trends and superficial fast fashion. This allows for garments that can be treasured for years. I am proud to say that I regularly see garments I designed 12 years ago, being worn in the street today.   What is the signature G-STAR design? Our signature in denim is European, as opposed to American, in origin. We are fundamentally forward looking, as opposed to heritage obsessed. We are inclined to remix, rather than replicate. And we are completely obsessed with the visual language of functionality.   Tell us about your passions in life and what keeps your creative flow going even during these strange times we are living at the moment? My passion is analog photography. I’m never far from my Leica M3, a TLR, or a large-format film camera. I develop the film myself in the kitchen of my houseboat. It’s a great way to explore an alternative channel for my creativity. Professionally, creativity has not been disrupted at all by the global crisis. Our philosophy has always been inward looking towards our DNA and the unequalled G-Star archive that provides limitless inspiration.   Can you tell us more about your new exclusive collection and what are it’s highlights? Key to this collection is the timelessness. Ignoring the superficiality of fleeting fast fashion and following the deeper undercurrents of culture’s flow. It is also reflected in our choice of design ingredients, which are largely extracted from functional garments within our archive. Function provides “truths” in design that outlive simple decoration.    The highlight are all styles we showed in the presentation with the little orange Anorak as the absolute highlight. It’s a perfect encapsulation of the playful spirit of exploration and reinvention that breathes life into the Exclusives collection.

H&M PRESENTS H&M STUDIO SS21 – AN ADVENTUROUS, VIBRANT COLLECTION OF TREASURES

H&M PRESENTS H&M STUDIO SS21 – AN ADVENTUROUS, VIBRANT COLLECTION OF TREASURES

Fashion H&M is proud to present its ‘Treasure Forever’ SS21 collection, created with adventure and self-expression in mind. Permeated with the seize-the-day spirit of treasure-seeking explorers, the collection pays homage to whimsical and carefree fantasies and fairytales. The H&M Studio SS21 collection will arrive in selected stores as well as on Hm.com from 18 February 2021.     Infused with the timeless appeal of enchanted explorers and daring dreamers, the collection offers strong sartorial hits with versatile modern casuals. Crafted, in the majority, from sustainably-sourced materials, this collection’s key pieces consist of the jacquard knitted sweater; the crushed velvet fringed black sweeping dress and the over-the-knee black boots in VEGEA leather. An electric colour palette of coral-orange and neon yellow, inspired by treasure and aquatic creatures, is balanced by neutral tones of beige and black.     H&M Studio pieces are designed to be cherished forever and so, for the first time, H&M Studio will be inviting customers to discover treasured pieces from past collections. An exclusive selection of archive pieces will be available to buy in two H&M stores globally: Berlin’s Mitte and Stockholm’s Sergels Torg stores.       H&M will also partner with Sellpy, a digital platform for selling second-hand fashion. Through a dedicated destination site at Sellpy, customers in Sweden, The Netherlands, Austria and Germany can shop archive H&M Studio pieces from previous collections, hand picked by Ann-Sofie Johannsson, Creative Advisor - H&M, for the launch of Studio SS21. H&M Group is the majority shareholder at Sellpy. Across H&M’s social media channels, customers are also invited to revisit their favorite pieces from previous Studio collections or style their new-found SS21 treasure with a previous Studio look.        ‘The SS21 collection muse finds adventure and fantasy in the everyday. The collection is a concise edit of optimistic looks to feel comfortable and confident in. Versatile silhouettes go hand in hand with strong tailoring to create playful pieces for our customers to treasure forever.’  - Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M.      ‘We wanted to capture the attitude of a confident and self-expressive explorer, so there are lots of bold pieces with under-the-sea references. The fringed skirt feels almost octopus-like, whereas the cropped painted leather jacket is a modern take on a maritime classic. Similarly, we added elements, such as tendril-like curls and irregular buttons, so that pieces feel as if pulled-from-the-ocean.’- Angelica Grimborg, Concept Designer at H&M Studio.    The SS21 campaign mirrors this enigmatic energy with a film that sees ten talents embody self-love, power and individuality as they traverse both real and fantasy worlds. H&M Studio is H&M’s most fashion-forward offering. Developed by an in-house design team at the brand’s Stockholm atelier, the limited-edition collections are unveiled biannually.      For more information about Studio S/S 21 please visit the dedicated microsite H&M is proud to present its ‘Treasure Forever’ SS21 collection, created with adventure and self-expression in mind.

Giorgio Armani presents: New Normal for Spring & Summer 2021

Fashion The Giorgio Armani's timeless style finds its perfect expression in New Normal: a selection of garments that is refreshed from season to season, distilling its spirit and discreet elegance into fluid silhouettes, of clean and pure design, crafted from fine materials that enhance the purity of the lines. Soft fabrics such as burette silk, double linen and silk, linen canvas and ramie silk, silk satin, check shantung and Irish linen characterise the wardrobe of this season, consisting of impeccable jackets, fluid dusters, lightweight blouses, curved- cut trousers that stop at the ankle, shirts, as well as cabans, shorts, dresses, kimono coats and collarless jackets with exotic hints. The palette of sandy neutrals, greys and pale blues with dashes of black is enlivened by noticeable textures, embossing, masculine patterns such as pinstripes, gingham, chevrons, and small necktie patterns. Tone-on-tone embroidery adds a delicate touch, while linings and natural wood buttons provide thoughtful detail. Low-heeled shoes and sandals, along with canvas and leather bags, complete the proposal.     The Giorgio Armani's timeless style finds its perfect expression in New Normal: a selection of garments that is refreshed from season to season, distilling its spirit and discreet elegance into fluid silhouettes, of clean and pure design, crafted from fine materials that enhance the purity of the lines.

OFF-WHITE™ LAUNCHES NEW ACCESSORY INSPIRED BY VIRGIL ABLOH’S ORIGINAL “METEOR SHOWER” CONCEPT: THE “BURROW BAG”
1106

OFF-WHITE™ LAUNCHES NEW ACCESSORY INSPIRED BY VIRGIL ABLOH’S ORIGINAL “METEOR SHOWER” CONCEPT: THE “BURROW BAG”

Accessories Off-White™ proudly announces the premiere of its brand new “Burrow Bag” line.     Debuting with a shoulder bag that will quickly be followed by a tote, the Burrow Bag concept is an elevated evolution of the “Meteor Shower” premises previously introduced by Off-White™ founder and creative director Virgil Abloh. These new carriers keep Off-White’s signature circular cutouts, which recall both swiss cheese holes and meteor shower craters, yet they are now imagined in more luxurious treatments with modern handcraftsmanship and voluminous touches. Ultimately, this punctured motif becomes more and more established within the Off-White™ visual canon; the bold graphic impact makes a memorable impression, and it both captures and reflects the attitude of its confident, strong and powerful wearer.   Model one, the Burrow Shoulder Bag 22, dropped on February 2nd, 2021. The item was released during the label’s combined-gender Spring/Summer 2021 digital “Imaginary TV” presentation. Colors options include black, white, red, camel and ocher yellow. Initially, the Burrow Shoulder Bag 22 was the only item from the presentation available for purchase.     With a complex construction and new nappa and suede leather finishes, along with adjustable leather straps and a detachable chain accent, the Burrow Shoulder Bag combines technical acuity with an elegant-yet-eclectic aesthetic. The base features a raised curve, as a hole cutout perforates the bottom portion of the bag. But this design feature does not sacrifice much by way of function; the Burrow Shoulder Bag has room for a wallet, cell phone and other outing necessities. This design also features more volume; the closure and body feature a slight “puff,” adding dimension to the bag’s lines and silhouette. Inside, a card-holder pocket features Off-White’s “Swimming Logo” in gold foil, as well as a “Made in Italy” stamp. Both the hardware, which features more Off-White™ markings, and the leather builds have a minimally aged effect, adding a patina of sophistication to the contemporary shape.   The Burrow Tote bag will follow in March. It will be available in two sizes, and both come unlined, keeping the carrier light and portable. More information will be released about the Burrow Tote as its drop date approaches.     The Burrow Shoulder Bag retails for $1,345 / 995€ and is now available, following the Off-White™ Spring/Summer 2021 presentation, at Farfetch.com, www.off---white.com, Off-White™ brick-and-mortar stores, and Off-White™ retail partners.

GUESS?, INC LAUNCHES GUESS ORIGINALS x PLEASURES DREW BARRYMORE COLLECTION

Fashion This Spring 2021, GUESS?, Inc. is excited to announce the launch of GUESS Originals x PLEASURES Drew Barrymore capsule. The 36-piece PLEASURES capsule offers a selection of men’s and women’s styles printed with iconic ‘90s GUESS campaign imagery featuring Drew Barrymore. The collection will be sold at select GUESS stores and guess.eu from March.       PLEASURES, a Los Angeles based streetwear brand founded by Alex James and Vlad Elkin in 2015, is known for its punk, metal and grunge leanings. Since its launch, PLEASURES has been collaborating with other world-famous fashion brands.     “This is our third collaborative release with GUESS and our largest range to date.” said PLEASURES founders, Alex James and Vlad Elkin. “With each collection, we keep pushing the boundaries while maintaining the heritage of GUESS. Drew is an American Icon.”     The GUESS Originals x PLEASURES capsule is built around timeless Drew Barrymore GUESS campaign imagery from 1993 by Wayne Maser, featuring unreleased photographs. The 1993 campaign was shot just as Drew was transitioning from a child star into her own as an adult. Around the time of the campaign, her whole look and personality transformed from innocent and youthful to extremely edgy and grown.      “The idea for the Drew Barrymore capsule started 3 years ago on another project with PLEASURES,” said Director of Brand Partnerships at GUESS, Nicolai Marciano. “There has been such an overwhelming number of people who mention her ‘93 campaign when they discuss GUESS’s most memorable work. In comparison to other legacy models we have worked with in the past, the time period of Drew’s career felt like the perfect unexpected moment of nostalgia to introduce to a new generation of GUESS fans.”     The collection features iconic polka dot and denim print from the ‘90s archive. Re-introducing the denim jacket set and sweat suit, GUESS wanted to juxtapose modern silhouettes with vintage Drew Barrymore images. The 36-style capsule features an assortment of styles for men and women in red, white and black colors.       The men’s offering includes a denim top and pant set, hoodies, crewneck and joggers set, button-down and t-shirts ranging from 39 Euro – 99 Euro.  The women’s offering includes a selection of baby tees, rib tank tops, an oversized tee, and hoodie along with a jacket and pant denim set which is made with a heavy enzyme wash, creating a vintage feel in the denim.  The women’s collection ranges from 29 Euro – 129 Euro.  To round out the collection accessories in the form of hats, totes, socks and sunglasses range from 12 Euro – 79 Euro.

DIESEL CELEBRATES REAL LOVE THROUGH DEEP PERSONAL CONNECTION IN ITS LATEST CAMPAIGN, “WHEN TOGETHER”

Fashion A portrait of desire, with absence fueling the fire.    DIESEL presents “When Together,” a short film featuring eight real-life couples physically and emotionally reconnecting in bliss following periods of absence from each other’s lives. Whether isolated from one another by walls, streets, borders, or seas, it is time apart that has fueled longing, desire and the subsequent ecstasy of being back together. Something captured here through DIESEL’s daring lens: real, raw and intimate. Combined, they embody every form of love. “When Together” is the first campaign formulated under DIESEL Creative Director Glenn Martens. Deep down, it’s about looking forward to a world in which true connection may occur once again, without fear and without angst.

Christian Wijnants presents Menswear Collection for Winter 2021

Men A child’s outlook can be the most inspiring - imaginative and spirited, not yet touched by the world. As memories have served as the thread connecting Christian Wijnants’ most recent collections, Winter 2021 Menswear was no different as he narrowed in on his adolescent years, revisiting them with a whole new outlook.     The patterns tell this story, playful and graphic, referencing stripes that Christian remembers from his father’s ties, reimagined in various ways; exaggerated and manipulated, seen as a magnified stripe on a two-tone turtleneck and patterned for a checkered trench coat. The knitwear introduced Mohair pieces, a first time for the brand, along with jacquard jumpers that reference Pointillism, the use of the Mouliné knit technique in chunky separates, and the Ottoman Knit, a twist on a traditional rib pattern that is instead horizontal. The color palette varies from deep tones of bordeaux, dark navy and forest, to icier brights, amethyst, sky, and teal.     The collection finds a balance between leisure and sophistication, ease and tailored, exploring the growth through those prominent years of childhood learning. It is curated and thoughtful, offering a narrow selection of silhouettes, produced in a variety of patterns and fabrics, each taking on their own identity. The same classic shirt is produced in both silk and viscose and trench coat in cotton and checkered virgin wool.       Credits: Model Erik van Gils the BAND Management Photography Jorre Janssens Hair and Makeup Sanne Schoofs Location CC Westrand, Dilbeek A child’s outlook can be the most inspiring - imaginative and spirited, not yet touched by the world.
