ARKET is dressing up for the season ahead

Fashion A certain etiquette has traditionally ruled the way we dress for festive occasions. At ARKET, bending and adapting these rules to fit a modern lifestyle is part of the brand. This year, given the uncertainty surrounding parties and celebrations as we know them, breaking the formal-wear rulebook is more relevant than ever. For the season ahead, ARKET has rounded up their favourite festive details with an invitation to invent your own rules – and to dress up, even if no one is watching.     Over-the-knee lengths result in playful silhouettes, even more so when combined with over-the-knee boots. Heels, as a part of formal attire, are absolutely optional in modern etiquette. A pair of flat-soled boots will also easily elevate a clean-cut dress. For a lively touch, unexpected details are added; like a velvet hair bow or opt for decorative trims such as broderie anglaise, scalloped edges, and tie collars.     The ARKET version of the party dress code includes refined mid-sized bags that do not compromise on functionality so that you can enjoy day-to-night. Mini bags in boldly-coloured renderings are another easy-to-wear accessory with a festive spin found in the range.     The collection is available in all ARKET stores and online. Prices range from €17 to €350. A certain etiquette has traditionally ruled the way we dress for festive occasions.

Louis Vuitton's “Game On” collection

Accessories Fashion is a game. Presented during Louis Vuitton’s 2021 Cruise Collection by Artistic Director of Women’s Collections Nicolas Ghesquière, Game On sees creative freedom playing with canvas and lines mingling between the Monogram flowers and four suits of a card deck. French actor and Louis Vuitton ambassador Léa Seydoux embodies this new collection and jumps into a fantasy illusion where clubs bloom, spades pierce, diamonds sparkle, and the almighty heart reigns. Through a transversal collection, Game On plays its ace on the House’s most iconic pieces including leather goods, ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories.     Game On Canvas sees the Monogram reinterpreted on a black or white background with contrasting colours of bright blue and poppy red - a tiny heart replaces the House’s signature blossom. Here, the Petite Malle and Vanity PM in black and white make for an eye-catching statement. The geometric Square bag in white leather with a golden chain ups the ante.     The Dauphine, Speedy, Neverfull, and Keepall in Game On Monogram are adorned with enlarged suits of cards, giant hearts and blossoms in vivid red, blue, pink and purple, paired with golden hardware. A pair of Archlight trainers in white with leather trimmings sport a bright red heart, perfect to pair with the Paname bags duo. The queen of hearts, the Monogram Heart bag, stands true to its name as the first ever heart shaped bag. Raising the stakes, Capucines BB in white Taurillon leather and the Twist in white Epi leather complete this game of illusion.     A royal flush, the collection expresses a particular art of living that keeps the trunk-making heritage alive. It’s the symbolism of a deck of cards, he traveller’s loyal companion, endless entertainment that cultivates togetherness. Game On is a lighthearted adventure in which all of the House’s spheres of expertise play a role, driven by passionate craftsmanship, their winning hand.     Already available in selected Louis Vuitton stores worldwide.   Fashion is a game.

FENTY releases four new shoes to round off your fall/winter looks

Accessories FENTY releases four new shoes to round off your fall/winter looks. Designed by Amina Muaddi, this shoe drop introduces four irresistible new designs to satisfy the most ardent of shoe fans. Available on FENTY.com   “I wanted to create footwear that represented the muse and the brand: strong, but refined and feminine” – Amina Muaddi     Selling out in record time, Muaddi’s summer collection for FENTY introduced a new inverted stiletto heel and delicate woven structures around the foot – statement features which carry through to the new designs. For the 11-20 fall release, she presents a pump, a sling back and two sandals, including a variation on last season’s best-selling Caged In sandal. Kicking off the collection is the Corset Pump, a modern take on the classically sexy stiletto, designed for the female gaze. Known for her use of pop materials to create glass-slipper-like shoes, Muaddi brings in a glossy, transparent PVC for the first colorway of the design in Electric Blue. With a pointy toe and accentuated heel, Corset Pump builds on last season’s theme of braiding in PVC laces threaded through eyelets across the foot, tying up at the ankle. Corset Pump is also available in Coco White leather with a metallic silver stiletto. Elevating everyday looks with effortless glamour, the second style, Don’t be Square, is a square-toed sling-back pump made from soft, rippling leather. Available in Ivory, the Don’t be Square has a chic, subtle design, aesthetically comparable to last season’s wearable Meshy Mule.     The showstopping third style, Ribbon Ropes, is a shiny stiletto sandal in Candy Pink or Jet Black. Structured satin ribbons and delicate crystal-embellished straps weave across the foot, curling up around the ankle to the mid-calf.     Finally, we return to where we started: the seductive Caged-In sandals. Originally designed in summery Candy Pink and Coco White, the Caged In returns in fall colors Electric Blue, Coco White, Jet Black and Crystal Black with the same caged structure of woven leather straps running all the way from the toe to the top of the calf.     Four new design, in four colors, the 11-20 Amina Muaddi collection is available now at FENTY.com and from November 14th on farfetch.com and levelshoes.com FENTY releases four new shoes to round off your fall/winter looks.

FENDI Lays the Foundation Stone of FENDI Factory

FENDI Lays the Foundation Stone of FENDI Factory

Culture FENDI lays the foundation stone of FENDI Factory, its new pole of excellence located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside in Bagno a Ripoli, close to Florence, highlighting the Maison’s continuous commitment towards environmental sustainability and social responsibility.     To mark the importance of this milestone for the Roman luxury house, Serge Brunschwig, Chairman and CEO, planted a tree on the construction site: a Turkey oak, a symbol across different cultures of virtus, dignity and courage. In particular, the Turkey oak tree plays a key role in the Fendi Factory project, celebrating the local biodiversity of the area.     Covering a land surface of 8 hectares, FENDI Factory, which has been designed by Milan-based architecture firm Piuarch, will occupy a 13,000-square-meter area formerly housing the Fornace Brunelleschi kiln. FENDI kicked off the works in the area in August 2018 to clear and prepare the construction site.     “Italy is synonymous with tradition, history, beauty and above all excellence. We embrace the opportunity to invest in the Made in Italy and to sublimate the core values of craftsmanship, artisanal savoir-faire and the power of handcrafting. Expertise and experimentation are all elements that support our marketing and company culture and at FENDI we believe that keeping and transmitting this level of tradition is fundamental for the coming generations. We are very proud of our roots, of this new chapter in Bagno a Ripoli, offering our teams a sustainable and caring working environment, “states Serge Brunschwig, FENDI Chairman and CEO.     Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces, FENDI Factory will feature a series of buildings connected with squares and stairs that, located at different levels, will be harmoniously integrated into the natural conformation of the Tuscan hillside. With plenty of sunlight filtering through the large glass walls, the functional and efficient manufacturing plant will offer a healthy workplace, where artisans will be able to express their skills and creativity at their best. Designed to guarantee unparalleled efficiency, FENDI’s new plant, including a range of manufacturing areas, offices and warehouses, will feature rational spaces enabling an easy circulation of people and goods.   “The start of the works of the new FENDI Factory production facility in Bagno a Ripoli witnesses the importance of the development agreements promoted by the MiSE, which aims at supporting our companies in the process of technological transformation, while protecting both the skills of our workers and the reconversion of existing plants in the territories in which they are located”, states the Minister of Economic Development, Stefano Patuanelli. “Encouraging investments in training, research and development is in fact one of the pillars – adds Patuanelli – of the strategy that the MiSE is carrying out, also through the 4.0 Transition plan. Historic fashion brands like FENDI represent Italian excellence in the world. The contribution of this sector to economic growth and to the presence of Italy in international markets is strategic, just as it is fundamental to support the authenticity and craftsmanship of their productions. The challenge for our productive fabric is to combine Made in Italy with innovation, technology with digitalization, skilfully merging the old and the new know-how, ancient manual skills and 4.0 training, always with an attentive eye to environmental sustainability”, concludes the Minister.   “Our bond with FENDI is strong and rooted and we are proud to have co-financed the national program that today consolidates a historic brand, relaunches growth prospects and gives us the reconversion of an historical industrial site like the former Fornace Brunelleschi," declares Eugenio Giani, President of the Toscana region. “We are proud –of the development agreement that unblocked the Mise resources, focused on leather goods and on the use of innovative technologies, and that opens a season of new employment with the prospect of doubling jobs.”   “FENDI’s new site represents a news of absolute impact for the Metropolitan City of Florence and beyond, because it combines the recovery of the former Fornace Brunelleschi and the spaces of the area with technological and employment development, doubling, as a matter of fact, the number of employees. It is a great project that, on the other hand, finds support and further increase in expectation precisely because it can pride of operating in the ‘Greater Florance’”, says Dario Nardella, Mayor of Florence.     “The start of the construction works of the new FENDI facility at Capannuccia is, today, a wave of hope for the future in such a complex moment,” asserts Francesco Casini, Mayor of Bagno a Ripoli. “It’s a new demonstration of how Bagno a Ripoli is a territory of opportunities for those who want to realize quality investments and of how in Florence and Tuscany one can do, and do well, with rapid and definite times, a virtuous collaboration between private and public sectors. Once again, with this intervention, the road to sustainable development is taken, allowing one of the leading groups in the fashion industry to have a new production plant immersed in the beauty of Chianti, looking to Florence, with a remarkable and very important impact on the economy and employment of the entire Tuscan and Florentine territory. And all of this without consuming a new soil, yet recovering an abandoned, degraded and squatted industrial site, that for a long time has represented an environmental emergency, thus transforming a critical problem into an extraordinary opportunity.”   In keeping with the Roman luxury house’s continuous commitment towards sustainability, FENDI Factory has complied so as to aiming at the prestigious LEED Platinum certification. Both the perimeter and interior walls will be made of glass, enabling the sunlight to filter and offering employees serene views of the Tuscan countryside and of the impeccably designed courtyards presenting local varieties of plants and flowers. Enabling the new FENDI site to blend in with the environment, the external walls of the different building will match glass with a natural mix of soil and concrete in a signature earthy tone reflecting the color shades of the Tuscan hillside and celebrating the ancient tradition of the site.   In addition, FENDI has created a public park in the same area, opposite the kindergarten, featuring playgrounds, wide benches and following the same approach of biodiversity of the FENDI Factory landscape, with native plant species and some areas dedicated to the growth of plants to have as natural an effect as possible.     FENDI Factory is set to inaugurate in 2022.

YOOX NET-A-PORTER AND THE PRINCE’S FOUNDATION LAUNCH SUSTAINABLE LUXURY CAPSULE OF WOMENSWEAR AND MENSWEAR DESIGNED IN ITALY AND CRAFTED IN THE UK BY MODERN ARTISAN TRAINEES

Fashion YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP and The Prince’s Foundation today launch a ready-to-wear luxury collection of womenswear and menswear, comprising 18 pieces. The capsule, branded YOOX NET-A-PORTER for The Prince’s Foundation, is the culmination ofThe Modern Artisan project, a rst of its kind partnership which aims to strengthen textile skills training and equip trainee artisans in the UK and Italy with the skills and con dence needed to produceluxury apparel collections to the highest standards.   In a Group first, the capsule collection comprising 10 pieces of womenswear and eight pieces ofmenswear is available across all four YOOX NET-A-PORTER online stores (NET-A-PORTER, MR PORTER, YOOX, and THE OUTNET), giving the artisans a unique opportunity to debut their work to 4.3 million customers.   An evolution of the relationship between HRH The Prince of Wales, President of The Prince’s Foundation, and Federico Marchetti, Chairman and CEO of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP, the collection celebrates both the rich heritage and future of British and Italian textile craftsmanship. The Modern Artisan project guides trainee artisans through the process of bringing a luxury collection to market, marrying training in data insights with sustainable practices and traditional production skills to equip the students for their future careers as truly modern artisans.   Six Italian students from leading design school Politecnico di Milano’s Fashion in Process (FiP) research laboratory led the design of the YOOX NET-A-PORTER for The Prince’s Foundation collection. Meanwhile British artisans undertook training in small batch productions skills at Dumfries House, the headquarters of The Prince’s Foundation in Ayrshire, Scotland, allowing them to craft the majority of the collection by hand in the estate’s Textile Training Centre. During the manufacturing process, the artisans learnt advanced technical production skills such as industrial sewing, pattern drafting and quality control, while also developing the expertise to handle wool, cashmere and silkfabrics to ensure garment nishes meet the requirements of the luxury market. These skills have beenformally recognised with the manufacturing artisans completing a Modern Apprenticeship Award in Heritage Textiles in partnership with Glasgow Clyde College. The knitwear was designed by the Italian artisans and manufactured at Johnstons of Elgin’s knitwear mill in Hawick, Scotland, where all of the artisans learnt about the British knitwear development process. Throughout the project, the British and Italian artisans collaborated across borders to share knowledge, cultures and experiences to enrich the collection.   In today’s fast-paced digital world, the artisans learned how data and technology can be intrinsic tothe design process for lasting luxury. They were granted exclusive access to ve years’ worth of YOOXNET-A-PORTER data on long-term preferences of the Group’s 4.3 million customers, to create a timeless collection they knew would resonate in the luxury customer’s wardrobe. They learnt how to process image data and use AI visual recognition to inform the styles and silhouettes of their designs. In the womenswear collection, details from the wide legs and midi lengths to the cinched-in waists and pussy bows were design choices informed by customer preferences. Similarly, data informed the choice ofcolours in the menswear, from the camel coat to the navy trousers, and in uenced de ning features suchas the drawstring detail at the waist of the casual trousers.   The collection design, carried out during the 500th anniversary year of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, took inspiration from the convergence of art and science in da Vinci’s work. The result is a sophisticated collection that marries formal lines and simple construction. Da Vinci’s knots are a feature throughout the collection. His studies of drapery inspired the womenswear, realised through folds, pleats, smocking, ties and bows. The menswear references da Vinci’s technical studies of engineering and anatomy, and his fascination with architectural details.   Sustainability is at the very heart of the collection, re ecting the shared values of The Prince’s Foundation whose President, HRH The Prince of Wales, has championed action for a sustainable future for more than four decades, and Federico Marchetti, Chairman and CEO of YOOX NET-A-PORTER. The Group has been dedicated to driving sustainability in luxury fashion since 2009. A conscious selection of suppliers and high-quality materials were fundamental to ensure the collection stands the test of time and can be passed down through generations. Cashmere and wool weresourced from Scottish textiles rm Johnstons of Elgin while fully traceable, organic eco silk was sourcedfrom Centro Seta in Italy. Natural and organic materials were prioritised, as was end-of-roll, and no synthetic fabrics were used in the collection. Each style is equipped with a digital ID, providing the story behind the product, its materials, the artisans who designed and made it, as well as care and repair recommendations to enable customers to treasure these pieces for years to come.   “The Modern Artisan project is a unique collaboration that champions sustainability and preparestrainees with the skills and con dence needed to gain employment in the fashion and textile industry,or start their own business. Managing the project on behalf of The Prince’s Foundation at Dumfries House and overseeing our skilled tutors teach the trainees artisanal skills and traditional methods of production to a new generation of makers has, for me, been a dream come true. I am very much lookingforward to seeing what the artisans do next and am con dent that each and every one of them will usethe skills they have developed throughout The Modern Artisan project to make a positive impact on the fashion and textile industry and help preserve these invaluable heritage craft skills.” – Jacqueline Farrell, Education Director, The Prince’s Foundation at Dumfries House   “I’ve long been inspired by uniting seemingly opposing worlds. The Modern Artisan project harnesses BigData and Arti cial Intelligence to transform the ancient profession of craftsmanship into a contemporarycareer: we have equipped the next generation of artisans with the digital tools of the trade to navigate an ever-evolving landscape. Designed in Italy and crafted in the UK, this truly sustainable luxury collection illustrates the vast possibilities of cross-border collaborations to tackle environmental challenges and train creative talents in these uncertain times and beyond.” – Federico Marchetti, Chairman and CEO, YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP   All pro ts from the sale of the collection will be donated to The Prince’s Foundation to enable thecharity to develop and deliver training programmes that will help preserve traditional textile skills. The Modern Artisan project is a long-term partnership between YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP and The Prince’s Foundation, which will be showcased at Michelangelo Foundation’s Homo Faber in 2021.     To shop YOOX NET-A-PORTER for The Prince’s Foundation, visit NET-A-PORTER, MR PORTER, YOOX, and THE OUTNET from 12 November 2020.     For more information about The Modern Artisan project please visit: www.ynap.com/pages/the-modern-artisan/ YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP and The Prince’s Foundation today launch a ready-to-wear luxury collection of womenswear and menswear, comprising 18 pieces. The capsule, branded YOOX NET-A-PORTER for The Prince’s Foundation, is the culmination ofThe Modern Artisan project, a rst of its kind partnership which aims to strengthen textile skills training and equip trainee artisans in the UK and Italy with the skills and con dence needed to produceluxury apparel collections to the highest standards.   In a Group first, the capsule collection comprising 10 pieces of womenswear and eight pieces ofmenswear is available across all four YOOX NET-A-PORTER online stores (NET-A-PORTER, MR PORTER, YOOX, and THE OUTNET), giving the artisans a unique opportunity to debut their work to 4.3 million customers.   An evolution of the relationship between HRH The Prince of Wales, President of The Prince’s Foundation, and Federico Marchetti, Chairman and CEO of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP, the collection celebrates both the rich heritage and future of British and Italian textile craftsmanship. The Modern Artisan project guides trainee artisans through the process of bringing a luxury collection to market, marrying training in data insights with sustainable practices and traditional production skills to equip the students for their future careers as truly modern artisans.   Six Italian students from leading design school Politecnico di Milano’s Fashion in Process (FiP) research laboratory led the design of the YOOX NET-A-PORTER for The Prince’s Foundation collection. Meanwhile British artisans undertook training in small batch productions skills at Dumfries House, the headquarters of The Prince’s Foundation in Ayrshire, Scotland, allowing them to craft the majority of the collection by hand in the estate’s Textile Training Centre. During the manufacturing process, the artisans learnt advanced technical production skills such as industrial sewing, pattern drafting and quality control, while also developing the expertise to handle wool, cashmere and silkfabrics to ensure garment nishes meet the requirements of the luxury market. These skills have beenformally recognised with the manufacturing artisans completing a Modern Apprenticeship Award in Heritage Textiles in partnership with Glasgow Clyde College. The knitwear was designed by the Italian artisans and manufactured at Johnstons of Elgin’s knitwear mill in Hawick, Scotland, where all of the artisans learnt about the British knitwear development process. Throughout the project, the British and Italian artisans collaborated across borders to share knowledge, cultures and experiences to enrich the collection.   In today’s fast-paced digital world, the artisans learned how data and technology can be intrinsic tothe design process for lasting luxury. They were granted exclusive access to ve years’ worth of YOOXNET-A-PORTER data on long-term preferences of the Group’s 4.3 million customers, to create a timeless collection they knew would resonate in the luxury customer’s wardrobe.

In the Women’s range, chunky knits with the FENDI ROMA logo are paired with hyper feminine skirts, while the classic tracksuit gets a chic makeover coming in a fluid viscose satin enriched with golden FENDI ROMA bands. Men’s urban puffers are rendered in the signature FENDI yellow, also used for maxi logo scarves, showing a cozy feel contrasting with the impeccable minimalism of slick suits.     To meet the needs of the chilly and rainy season, FENDI also collaborates with K-Way® to offer a chic, customized version of the legendary reversible nylon windbreakers, which can be folded in a pocket and carried as a pouch. The printed face, coming in mat black, is matched with a solid one, - black and gold for Women, dark blue for Men. For a truly luxurious touch, FENDI and K-Way® also developed a Women’s and Men’s exclusive style, where nylon is combined with an FF logo printed on mink fur in brown.    To shine bright at the upcoming holiday events, FENDI, along with creating a range of FF logo jewelry pieces, including earring and a necklace to tie around the waist,  also presents a range of glamorous styles, inspired by the eternally charming party vibe of New York’s nightlife mecca Studio 54.       Gold metallic accents take center stage in the show-stopping GoldenCapsule Collection.
