Louis Vuitton releases the new Capucines bags

Accessories A supple feel, geometric architecture and distinctive signature: the Capucines bag created in 2013 and named after Louis Vuitton’s very rst store which opened in 1854 on rue Neuve-des-Capucines – has quickly established itself as one of the House’s most iconic designs. The epitome of the trunk-maker’s know-how, it embodies Louis Vuitton’s values and DNA, reinventing itself each season in an ongoing dialogue with the times.   For Spring-Summer 2020, monochrome colours – including snow, eau de rose, dragon fruit and banane – lend a vibrant, fresh and pop touch to the Capucines bag, which comes in PM (small), BB and the new permanent Mini size. Other innovations, such as a plexiglass handle, ayers skin nish or enlarged shoulder straps for crossbody wear, will allow it to embrace an endless variety of styles at di erent times of day. A wicker reinterpretation of the iconic bag, the summer- perfect Musette, will be presented this season in a caramel leather shade.   more information on LouisVuitton.com A supple feel, geometric architecture and distinctive signature: the Capucines bag created in 2013 and named after Louis Vuitton’s very rst store which opened in 1854 on rue Neuve-des-Capucines – has quickly established itself as one of the House’s most iconic designs.

Patrizia Pepe previews Fall & Winter Collection

Fashion A journey through London’s neighbourhoods and its highly stylish, trendy and creative environments. The most vibrant looks ofthe season, distinct yet complementary, inspired by a love for music and the New Wave rhythms of the English capital. For sensual, daring and irreverent femininity. Iridescent and transparent effects form the background to the Dance Studio theme, evoking the Royal Ballet as a metaphor for the gentle, yet feisty spirit of the contemporary woman. Pure shades wrap the delicate, impalpable interseasonal garments, which are embellished with pleats, see-through meshes and rock-style logos. The unstructured, asymmetrical and cut-out jacket is overlaid on a maxi white shirt for a contemporary and non-conformist look.   A punk-chic elegance emerges from the legendary ’90s, celebrating the brand’s DNA and its bold, unconventional style. Shades of Black Rebel, Glam Lips, Optical White and Guitar Red catch the eye. Satin dresses and tailored suits define Patrizia Pepe’s City Ska ‘new look’. The celebration of the brand’s stylistic hallmarks continues with a return to floral motifs on hyper-light créponné and jacquardwoven with lurex. Patrizia Pepe’s signature looks, crafted from stretch fabrics and a perfect fit, include the suit illuminated by metal eyelets and the clubbing dress with prominent shoulders, wraparound draping and a hyper-sexy vertical slit. Contamination between masculine and feminine pervades the Tomboy theme, alternating David Bowie-style shiny acid greensatin suits with portrait prints reinterpreted with a graphic twist as the season’s Rock Icon element. The pinstripe trench coat becomes a metropolitan uniform, characterized by large lapels, shoulder patches and a waist belt with a Fly metal buckle.   In the streets of Shoreditch, the metropolitan nomad starts to draw on Brick Lane’s street art and the hipster vibrations of the EastEnd, alternating utility and sensuality. The result is a new ‘military style’ that rethinks ‘urban contemporary’ with practical shapesand natural shades. Among vintage markets and trendy bars, the ‘officer’ wardrobe shifts towards the passion of Absinth Yellow, Black and Denim.In the Sensual Shoreditch theme, rigid silhouettes give way to versatile denim workwear jumpsuits and flowing satin dresses with soft pleats.   The “Gentle Rebel” journey ends with the sporting atmosphere of Stratford, the symbolic district of West Ham football club. Dynamic silhouettes and athletic details, with a focus on urban mobility, are characterized by extra-comfortable technical materials ranging from nylon to super-stretch Lycra with contrasting colours. The oversized trench coat has a vibrant Orange Alert shade that enhances the large, enveloping design, adapting to the fast pace of the day and the glamour of the evening.     The accessories explore every possible shape and material combination. The bucket bag with a drawstring and rigid clutch bag are lit up with shiny laminated tassels. The iconic Sleepy Fly combines powder shades with punk interpretations featuring large metal sail rings. The multi-coloured lettering explodes on the surface to create a new graphic code, while the sport-style buckles are covered with coloured and logoed fabrics. Inspired by the world of gyms, the technical fabric pouch bag and shoulder bag are decorated with striking metal elements, large zips and neon pullers.   Contrasts also characterize the shoes, such as the pleated sandals with a ‘dancer’ look, boots with pointed toes and chunky heels, biker boots with branded lug soles and a soft, feminine design with new geometric heels. Contemporary sneakers, the emblem of the Patrizia Pepe woman’s streetwear style, reveal new designs boasting neon touches, all-over logos and technical finishes.   more on: patriziapepe.com A journey through London’s neighbourhoods and its highly stylish, trendy and creative environments.

Philippe Model Paris for Spring & Summer

Philippe Model Paris for Spring & Summer

Accessories 90s aesthetics. A re-working of the atmospheres and styles of the decade that symbolised theabsolute coexistence of different, sometimes opposite trends, which represented a moment of infinitepossibilities - styles, inventions, modernity, ways of life – in fashion and beyond. From musical subcultures to aesthetic ones, the 90s mixed opulence with minimalism, grunge with gothic, clubbing with purism, making every association acceptable and legitimising the sporty model in everyday life. Philippe Model Paris embraces this quest for experimentation and freedom of expression through a collection in which materials and colours come together in unexpected combinations. The senses of touch and sight are stimulated in an almost psychedelic manner. From fluorescent varnish to soft, sophisticated leather, from nylon to metal animal print, from printedpony hair to absolute mono-colour elegance: a dynamic and harmonious blend thatmakes a well-known, familiar taste current and contemporary. There are two major innovations, for both men and women, in terms of models and shapes. EZE: The first is EZE, an aesthetic tribute to the 90s, with its oversized shape and the mix and match style ofmaterials and colours reminiscent of a more underground, sophisticated taste. Eze is a new running shoe that is ultra-light, thanks to the use of innovative Eva technology, withdeliberately extreme volumes combining very different materials and colours.   SAINT DENIS: The second is SAINT DENIS: an original idea of what a sneaker is, it was inspired by basketball culture and style, innovatively interpreted while confirming the brand’s Parisian soul. This even includes thename: In addition to being one of the most famous multi-ethnic quarters of Paris, Saint Denis is alsowhere the first basketball court in the world was built in 1892, and where the first basketball match in France and in Europe took place in 1893. Despite the sport having been invented by James Naismithin the United States a year earlier, the French capital, and Saint Denis in particular, can claim the honour of having the oldest basketball court in the world. When it comes to aesthetics, both the sole and the upper are characterised by the dynamism and movement of their lines and by varied materials.   TRPX & PRSX: TRPX and PRSX, reinterpretations of the brand’s iconic models, are literally dressed in new texturesand colours, from fluorescent to animal print to vinyl, ensuring that the brand’s heritage is always instep with the times. While Montecarlo, the running shoe par excellence with an innovative design that has marked an important evolution of the brand in terms of proportions, takes the concept of colour blocking to the extreme, pairing pop with metal.     The Philippe Model Paris brand has its roots in the creative genius of the namesake French founder and artist who, thanks to his eclectic talent, has earned a prominent place among the world’s fashion greats. In 1978, at just 22 years old, Philippe Model launched his fashion accessories brand, immediately collaborating withFrance’s top couturiers. The brand gained prominence in the 1980s, when the first iconic shoe, the Elastique,became a symbol of modern femininity, well ahead of its time in terms of the revolutionary concept of comfort seen in future sneakers. 2008 marks the year in which the creative talent of the French designer and artist met Italian excellence and know-how. In 2016, the brand set down a new path of international developmentwhen it was acquired by 21 Invest, an Italian private equity firm led by Alessandro Benetton. In addition to its elegant Parisian showroom, in 2017 the brand opened its new head offices in Via Bigli, at the heart of Milan’s fashion district and just a few meters from the first single-brand shop, inaugurated in May of the same year, in Via Sant’Andrea 17. 2018 saw even more openings, such as the Parisian boutique in Rue de Grenelle, plus Saint Tropez, Lyon and Rome’s Piazza di Spagna location. In addition to strengthening strategic markets such as the USA and Asia, the brand has opened one new shop in South Korea and five in China. 90s aesthetics.

Corneliani releases the Circle Collection

Corneliani releases the Circle Collection

Men Corneliani designs a new ‘circle’ of values and products of low environment impact, based on responsibility and transparency at every stage of the manufacturing cycle. CIRCLE is a stylistic and productive code that symbolizes the life cycle; it is the beginning of a new path of social and environmental awareness and responsibility; it is a 'circle' of people and products through which the brand renews its ties with its long-standing clients and new eco-sustainable consumers, who are increasingly attentive to the nature of what they choose to wear. With this project, the company writes the first chapter of a new story that reflects the constant dialogue with the final buyer and the need for a concept of elegance that is not only aesthetic, but also, and above all, ethical. From this comparison comes a first capsule collection of garments united by the exclusive use of natural and organic fibers from companies and suppliers who have long since embarked on the path of sustainability.   Through this approach, Corneliani starts a first phase of change and prospective alignment with the methods, certifications and international standards that regulate the compatibility of industrial processes. The company’s management team and the brand's production chain unite with an alternative mentality and a concrete conduct aimed at integrating and guaranteeing the new generation values, centered on transparency and traceability. The path inaugurated by Corneliani aims to implement and operate new system synergies that allow the company to expand its horizons and increase its quality thanks to a solid and conscious vision, shared both within the team and with all contacts and suppliers in the production chain. The will to act in a positive and responsible way implies a natural reflection on primary issues such as the protection of the territory, the well-being of people and the definition of effective solutions for the reduction of CO2 emissions and water and energy consumption, with the aim of reducing the environmental impact and the waste of non- renewable resources. Closing the 'circle' presupposes a commitment to transparent, clear and verified information regarding the choices made in this new path, guided by sustainable thinking in the direction of a more modern and healthy production system.   Corneliani CIRCLE debuts with six total looks with an essential, versatile and urban taste, faithful to the identity, style and excellence that have always distinguished the brand. The capsule is integrated in the SS 2020 collection and includes outerwear, trousers, shirts, knitwear and footwear. The capsule is distinguished by a dedicated label and product tags, in which the customer will also find a link to a dedicated section in corneliani.com with all information on materials and production.   The CIRCLE means: Circle of transparency and inclusion with respect to the new values adopted by the company. Circle of communication on the quality of the new generation and on the different aspects concerning style, innovation and responsibility. Circle of territoriality. Circle of research and development with the team inside and outside the company.

Max Mara releases the Whitney bag

Accessories To reinvent oneself. To continually renew the message. This is the goal of every artist and every museum. A case in point is the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, founded in 1930 by the sculptor and art patron Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney. A museum that emerged in 2015 as one of the cultural epicenters of downtown New York when it moved into the futuristic Renzo Piano designed building that faces the High Line at 99 Gansevoort Street and is now celebrating its 5th anniversary.   It just happens to be the anniversary shared by another notable icon, the Whitney Bag, created by Max Mara in collaboration with the Renzo Piano Building Workshop to celebrate the opening of the Whitney Museum of American Art. Crafted in soft, quality leather, the hallmark of the “Whitney Bag” – as indeed the architectural structure of the building – is its elegant surface, featuring distinctive ribbing that gradually becomes fine lines, directly recalling the steel tie- beamed exterior of the new Whitney Museum. These graphic lines are created using traditional leather craft with innovative industrial techniques. Brass plates are used to mold the strips of leather that are then topstitched together to construct the pattern on the bag. In describing the Whitney Bag, all metal detailing is based on the observation of the structural metal components of the architectural project by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop. The façade of the building is used as inspiration for the buckles, while the inside pocket and the unmistakable snap hook act as a signature feature of the bag.   “The Whitney bag has been designed to be timeless, and after five years it still represents a modern, elegant and simple way to design, where details and craftsmanship really matter.” Elisabetta Trezzani, partner RPBW.   To celebrate its 5th anniversary, the cult bag has been revived in a special edition version dedicated to the American painter Florine Stettheimer who boasts an important presence at the Whitney. A feminist and activist ante-litteram (1871-1944), Stettheimer’s work “Sun”, created in 1931, inspired the bag’s five new color variants and the design of the floral printed lining. Indeed an anniversary issue, or better yet five, to collect like works of art.   Florine Stettheimer (1871 – 1944) was a pioneer of modern art. A native New Yorker, Stettheimer embraced New York City’s emergent modern art community where she established herself as a painter, poet and theatrical designer. An early feminist, Stettheimer is credited with painting the first female nude self-portrait. She received widespread acclaim for her costume and set designs, notably for Gertrude Stein and Virgil Thomson’s opera, “Four Saints in Three Acts”. Stettheimer’s avant-garde painting style often focused on societal quirks with her family and friends as the subjects. Her work has been showcased in more than 40 international exhibitions.   The Whitney Museum of American Art, founded in 1930 by the artist and philanthropist Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney (1875– 1942), houses the foremost collection of American art from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Mrs. Whitney, an early and ardent supporter of modern American art, nurtured groundbreaking artists at a time when audiences were still largely preoccupied with the Old Masters. From her vision arose the Whitney Museum of American Art, which has been championing the most innovative art of the United States for more than eighty years. The core of the Whitney’s mission is to collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit American art of our time and serve a wide variety of audiences in celebration of the complexity and diversity of art and culture in the United States. Through this mission and a steadfast commitment to artists themselves, the Whitney has long been a powerful force in support of modern and contemporary art and continues to help define what is innovative and influential in American art today.   To reinvent oneself.

Stettheimer’s avant-garde painting style often focused on societal quirks with her family and friends as the subjects. Her work has been showcased in more than 40 international exhibitions.   The Whitney Museum of American Art, founded in 1930 by the artist and philanthropist Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney (1875– 1942), houses the foremost collection of American art from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Mrs. Whitney, an early and ardent supporter of modern American art, nurtured groundbreaking artists at a time when audiences were still largely preoccupied with the Old Masters. From her vision arose the Whitney Museum of American Art, which has been championing the most innovative art of the United States for more than eighty years. The core of the Whitney’s mission is to collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit American art of our time and serve a wide variety of audiences in celebration of the complexity and diversity of art and culture in the United States. Through this mission and a steadfast commitment to artists themselves, the Whitney has long been a powerful force in support of modern and contemporary art and continues to help define what is innovative and influential in American art today.
