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

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.

For the launch of its new Pasha watch, Cartier unveils a new campaign highlighting a community of unique personalities who are changing the codes of success by forging exceptional and diverse paths of creativity.

Watches Cartier is launching a multimedia campaign fronted by five extraordinary talents, Rami Malek, Troye Sivan, Willow Smith, Maisie Williams and Jackson Wang. The campaign, to be disseminated across the world, marks the celebration of the launch of the new Pasha watch, a cult watch marked by its amazing design and distinctive codes.     Since its creation in the 1980s, the Pasha watch has embodied a certain idea of success that is evident in its extroverted design, and graphic singularity. As edgy as ever, the new Pasha remains unique, yet in tune with new generations of creators, who owe their success to their differences, creativity, and multidisciplinary talents. Cartier’s new campaign recalls the unique ability of these creators to transcend preconceived ideas and forge new, exceptional paths towards achievement. The Maison entrusted the articulation of this vision to New York fashion photographer Craig Mc Dean, with images centered around the new Pasha ambassadors Rami Malek, Troye Sivan, Willow Smith, Maisie Williams and Jackson Wang.     TROYE SIVAN:   As a YouTuber, singer, and actor, how would you describe your different identities and the success you have achieved from each? How do you balance these different professions and manage your own time?    I think for me the driving force has always been an insatiable desire to create, no matter the format. That’s manifested itself in a few different ways over time, and keeps me really excited about my work. The through line through all of them is a love and need to process life through making stuff, and the kick I get out of sharing it.   What is the main thing you’ve learned from success and what are you most proud of?   I think the main thing I’ve learned is that there’s really no rules. Do what feels right, trust your instincts, take risks, and enjoy yourself. I’m most proud when someone mentions that a song/album of mine has been the soundtrack to a particular season in their life. I love when that happens to me with music, so I’m always really honoured when it happens to someone else with mine.       RAMI MALEK:   Hollywood can be a bit systematic; how do you fit in and how do you challenge that environment?   I’m instinctively drawn to projects that feel like new territory, not only for myself but for Hollywood as a whole. It is important to challenge the status quo in our industry so that representation never becomes fenced in by habit or tradition. I really hope the conversations that our industry is having right now will prevent the further perpetuation of stereotypes.   The distinct design of the Pasha watch challenges the predominance of round shapes in watchmaking and amplifies its presence, originality and singularity. How do you relate with the watch and spirit of Pasha de Cartier?   I love that Cartier has a way of honoring what is treasured of the past and marrying that with a modern accessibility and twist. It has both delicacy and strength.      “We are thrilled to unveil this campaign and introduce these extraordinary talents to our diverse audiences around the world. Cartier is a pioneering house, in constant creative exploration and strongly committed to come up with innovative campaigns as well as collections that appeal to our diverse audiences.” declares Arnaud Carrez, Marketing and Communication Director at Cartier International. “The diffusion of this campaign enables us to share our values of universality and openness. The contribution of our new Pasha ambassadors is a way for our Maison to celebrate this creative dialogue born more than 170 years ago.”         Beginning on September 4, the campaign will feature billboards in capitals of the world, as well as print advertising in major newspapers and fashion and lifestyle magazines. Furthermore, Cartier is unveiling a movie featuring these 5 exceptional talents who reveal a glimpse into their world inhabited by creativity, assertiveness and versatility, as well as 5 short movies, each dedicated to one of the talents. Viewers will be able to see and explore the movies through the Maison’s website www.cartier.com  Cartier is launching a multimedia campaign fronted by five extraordinary talents, Rami Malek, Troye Sivan, Willow Smith, Maisie Williams and Jackson Wang.

Antigona Soft bag by Givenchy is a must have for Autumn

Men For Fall-Winter 2020, the House of Givenchy has adapted its new Antigona Soft bag especially for the Givenchy man.     Named for the heroine of Greek mythology who inspired the original, iconic Antigona, the Antigona Soft first appeared in the Pre-Fall 2020 women’s lookbook. Revisited in a men’s version, the maxi style debuted on the Fall-Winter 2020 runway in Paris, as a natural extension of this season’s mood.     At a glance, the family resemblance is clear. Like the classic Antigona, the Antigona Soft is based on rigorous geometry and purity of line, transposed into a suppler construction. Inspired by Givenchy’s dual signature, the new men’s bag blends the subtle sensuality found in the women’s style now enhanced with more generous, masculine proportions.     A directional statement among Givenchy leather accessories for men, the Antigona Soft is sophisticated yet versatile. Gliding seamlessly from everyday use to weekender or extended getaways, it comes in a large size (in black or sand beige) and a maxi size; in woven black, white and red leather; with the Givenchy chains print on wool; or in timeless black calf leather. Sleek, practical features include a removable shoulder strap for extra versatility, two spacious zipped compartments, and a zipped inner pocket. Two outer handles with turn-lock hardware add to its refined allure.     The Antigona Soft maxi bag for men will debut in Givenchy boutiques on September, 2020. Retail prices: from 2,290 euros (large).

Barbour by ALEXACHUNG Autumn Winter 20 Collection

Fashion This Autumn Winter 20, leading heritage and lifestyle brand Barbour continues its collaboration with British fashion brand, ALEXACHUNG, to create an archive inspired outerwear collection that sees classic styles reimagined through the ALEXACHUNG lens for modern city and country living.     Taking inspiration from the Barbour archives dating back to 1910, the eleven-piece collection which features 2 new baseball cap styles, is a celebration of British craftmanship and tradition that evokes a love of the great outdoors.     Alexa Chung said: “This is arguably my favourite collection to date as we approached the design process with more ambition, delving even deeper into the Barbour archive to explore new silhouettes and make them our own. This particular collection evokes an element of nostalgia fuelled by childhood memories of seeing my elders wearing similar shapes in Hampshire.     Silhouettes are more adventurous whilst the palette is paired down. Navy features quite heavily which might not come as much of a surprise to anyone who has been following my personal wardrobe, whilst earthy tones like the chestnut brown and brick red rust feel pleasingly synonymous with both brands. It's an autumnal English postcard of outerwear.     The goal with every approach is to create pieces that feel versatile enough to wear for everyday situations, both in the city and countryside, but on this occasion, she’s missing home...”     Paul Wilkinson, Global Commercial and Marketing Director, Barbour said ‘We are proud to announce another season with ALEXACHUNG. Alexa’s interest and passion in the Barbour archive has helped create another special collection which highlights Barbour’s timeless appeal reimagined by ALEXACHUNG – they’re classic country styles with a subtle fashion twist.”     Taking inspiration from the Barbour Bedale Wax, which was designed by Dame Margaret Barbour in 1980 as an equestrian jacket, the Barbour Violet Wax adds contemporary styling to a Barbour icon. Lined in a choice of Barbour’s Classic, Ancient or Red Navy Tartan, key features on the jacket include functional bellows pockets, a detachable hood and a corduroy collar. Studded back vents allow breathability, whilst a trademark ‘sugar lump’ chest pocket and a pull ring zip, add a sharp and branded look. Finished in a Sylkoil wax cotton, this is a garment that caters perfectly to both town and country living.     A timeless piece derived from Barbour’s famous fishing jacket, the Spey first introduced in the 1980s, the Barbour Floyd Wax is a cropped style that updates the aesthetic of a fishing jacket with a look suited for city life. A shearling wool collar provides warmth during colder months, together with a Classic Tartan and a black and white Northumbria Check lining which contrast against the jacket’s earthy colourways of ‘Fern’ and ‘Tan’.     Casual in design, the Barbour Cindy Sports Cap is a panelled baseball cap with a curved front and Barbour label branding on the bill. Lightweight, this accessory is available in three colourways: ‘Monks Robe’, ‘Sunset Orange’ and a ‘Northumberland Check’. Made with the winter season in mind, the Barbour Cindy Sports Wax Hat takes a Sylkoil wax finish. Country shades of ‘Fern’ and ‘Navy’ are partnered with a Classic Tartan and a Navy Red Tartan lining, completing a signature look.     The Barbour by ALEXACHUNG Autumn Winter 20 range will be available from September 20 at Barbour.com and selected stockists worldwide.     See barbour.com/alexachung for more details.

Cargo: Spring-Summer 2021.   “To stop a man on the street and stand still while talking to him, is not so difficult difficult as to say something something to a passer-by passer-by in passing, passing, without standing still and without delaying the other, without attempting to persuade him to go the same way, but giving him instead an impulse to go precisely his own way.” –Søren Kierkegaard, Concluding Unscientific Postscript to Philosophical Fragments, 1846.    Sail with the stars, through uncharted waters, where no man has gone before. On the second stop of the Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2021 voyage, Men’s Artistic Artistic Director Director Virgil Abloh explores the unlimited seas of the imagination. Fantasy is the faculty of imagining the impossible. Embedded within our upbringing, the impossible impossible is defined de by societal societal notions notions followed followed blindly blindly from one generation to the next. The collection proposes an alternative to rationalism: in order to break the chain – to achieve the impossible impossible – the mind must journey journey into the subconscious subconscious and cross the borders of reason. Surrealism: an artistic movement concerned with twisting the norm, imbuing the familiar with new meaning, and making the ordinary extraordinary.   In August 2020, when the Louis Vuitton voyage set sails from Shanghai, the rambunctious stowaways known as Zoooom with friends travelled travelled in tow. Now, the crazy characters characters disembark disembark in Tokyo, stirring up their hypnotising parade of inclusivity and unity.
