The tie-dye creations by DIOR

Fashion A tribute to the beauty and priceless craftsmanship of Puglia, a region close to Maria Grazia Chiuri’s heart, the 2021 Cruise collection celebrates the Dior codes and motifs the Creative Director loves, such as Tie & Dior. A testimony to excellence of savoir-faire, this precious dyeing technique is used to color long skirts, flowing shirts, flared pants and matching tops in a palette of delicate shades from pale pink to sky blue, sweet notes underscored by intense black. These hypnotic designs also unfurl on scarves and the iconic Lady Dior and Dior Book Tote bags, enhanced by captivating plays on materials such as three-dimensional cotton embroidery and faded denim layers. The fruit of constant research and experimentation, fabrics with surprising and unique looks have become a House emblem.

WEEKDAY: Store Made Holiday Studio

Fashion During this holiday season, the Weekday Store Made Studio will collaborate with three designers, one per week, for exclusive and unique design pieces. The pieces will be sold on the Weekday Big Cartel site and all money made from the collaborations will be donated to Civil Rights Defenders, an international human rights organization. Civil Rights Defenders support human rights activists in their fight against injustices such as political persecution, racism and oppression against the LGBTQI community.     The first collection is in collaboration with Ellen Hodakova Larsson.      Ellen Hodakova Larsson:   Stockholm based designer Ellen Hodakova Larsson designs focus on alternative ways of reworking old clothing to find new functions and values in already produced material. By deconstructing and recontextualizing vintage and deadstock clothing she is able to flip the original function in the process. For this collaboration Weekday gloves that once warmed hands now warms the body and bras which once held breasts are now top and skirt. Collection drops November 26th.     Annika Berger and Per Axen:   Weekday designers Annika Berger and Per Axen have spent the last year creating one off pieces for the Store Made Studio. Their focus has been on offering customers new ideas on how to be resourceful with what they already have at home. Recent collections have used cut up and mash up techniques, spray painting and dip dying to creatively refresh a wardrobe instead of making new purchases. Collections drops December 3rd.     Per Götesson:   London based designer Per Götesson is a graduate of Beckman's College of Design and The Royal College of Art. Götesson's eponymous label caught the eye of both Lulu Kennedy at Fashion East and Topman during his studies. He debuted his graduate collection on the London Fashion Week Men's catwalk with menswear collective MAN in 2016. Taking a no-frills approach to functional fashion Götesson's inspiration comes from the everyday and mundane but subverts it to add romance and poetry to traditional ideas of masculinity. Collection drops December 10th.     Claire Yurika Davis:   London-based designer, sustainability consultant and tarot reader Claire Yurika Davis specializes in slick, fetish-inspired designs. By sourcing the lowest impact materials, creating minimal waste and reducing her collections from a relentless season-to-season model to just one a year, Claire’s sustainable practices began on day one of founding her brand HANGER. Reworking pieces to her genderless, slutty and tailored aesthetic.

THE CHANEL MÉTIERS D’ART COLLECTION
776

THE CHANEL MÉTIERS D’ART COLLECTION

Fashion Week Created in 2002 to pay tribute to the French fashion savoir-faire endlessly reinvented in a constant dialogue between the House of CHANEL and the artisans, the CHANEL Métiers d’art collection is, each year, an exceptional rendezvous.      Presented in December, outside the official show calendar, this Ready-to-Wear collection unique to CHANEL, is always themed with a destination – real or imaginary – linked to the history or current events of the House.      Today, the collection expresses the creative power of Virginie Viard, Artistic Director of Fashion collections, and combines the expertise of CHANEL's Métiers d’art circle, bringing together several hundred embroiderers, feather workers, paruriers, pleaters, shoemakers, hatters and glove-makers located in Paris, the rest of France and Italy.     Some decades after Gabrielle Chanel had been the first to call upon Paris’s best artisans, the need to protect, sustain and develop these enterprises, to support their capacity for innovation and global recognition, became an obvious mission to the House of CHANEL. It came into effect in 1985 with the acquisition of the parurier Desrues, followed by nearly forty more Maisons d’art and manufactories1, employing more than 6,600 people from different generations and backgrounds, all serving the creativity of CHANEL and the other big fashion houses – without exclusivity – in France and on the international scene.      In 2021, eleven Maisons d'art2 will be moving into Le 19M, the new site established by CHANEL on the edge of the 19th arrondissement in Paris and its neighbouring town Aubervilliers, that will be dedicated to the fashion Métiers d’art. As independent entities, they will continue to work with all their clients according to the inspiration of designers.  A veritable bridge between tradition and innovation, this 25,500 m2 showcase imagined by the architect Rudy Ricciotti will meet the specific needs of the 600 artisans who will work there. This architectural oeuvre has been designed with energy efficiency in mind and aims to obtain the most demanding environmental certifications and labels. Le 19M will also house an inclusive and multidisciplinary creative space, dedicated to sharing, dialoguing and meeting with the public.      With Le 19M, CHANEL continues its work to preserve and develop the savoir-faire of the Métiers d'art and to reaffirm Paris as the capital of creation.     #CHANELMetiersdArt  #Le19M Created in 2002 to pay tribute to the French fashion savoir-faire endlessly reinvented in a constant dialogue between the House of CHANEL and the artisans, the CHANEL Métiers d’art collection is, each year, an exceptional rendezvous.      Presented in December, outside the official show calendar, this Ready-to-Wear collection unique to CHANEL, is always themed with a destination – real or imaginary – linked to the history or current events of the House.      Today, the collection expresses the creative power of Virginie Viard, Artistic Director of Fashion collections, and combines the expertise of CHANEL's Métiers d’art circle, bringing together several hundred embroiderers, feather workers, paruriers, pleaters, shoemakers, hatters and glove-makers located in Paris, the rest of France and Italy.     Some decades after Gabrielle Chanel had been the first to call upon Paris’s best artisans, the need to protect, sustain and develop these enterprises, to support their capacity for innovation and global recognition, became an obvious mission to the House of CHANEL.

THE GREEN SOUL OF ZEGNA

Fashion A SUSTAINABLE ETHOS HAS LED US SINCE OUR INCEPTION. RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS PEOPLE, COMMUNITY AND TERRITORY HAS BEEN AT OUR CORE SINCE 1910. ENSURING THE HIGHEST QUALITY WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS IS OUR LEGACY. GIVING BACK IS OUR PATH. PASSION IS OUR MOTIVATION FOR PRESERVATION. IN LOVE WITH NATURE FOR 110 YEARS, AT ZEGNA WE CONTINUE TO TAKE CARE OF THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.     At Zegna, we have taken care of the world we live in from the beginning, following in the footsteps of our founder Ermenegildo Zegna. This is our company mission, based on a constantly-evolving thought: looking at the future with the belief that our actions today will shape our tomorrow. At Zegna, social and environmental responsibility have been our roots for 110 years. When we were founded in 1910, Ermenegildo Zegna’s dream was not just to create the world’s finest textiles but to make his hometown and the world around it a better place, ensuring the highest-quality products without compromising the quality of life for future generations. His vision is still the heart of everything we do. The environment is at the core of our efforts: we believe the very best garments can only come from the best natural resources, and that these resources need to be cared for. The advanced vertical integrated of our business model facilitates our journey towards a sustainable product and holds us accountable for responsible practices and processes.      2020 marks our 110th anniversary. On this landmark year we are proud to renew our sustainability pledge, exemplified by OASI Zegna, where our Lanificio Zegna was established and our green philosophy was ignited. OASI Zegna is a unique model of our environmental consciousness, a territory that now covers 100km2 from Trivero to Valle Cervo in the Alpi Biellesi, that would not have been possible without the visionary approach of our founder.      As a living example of the company’s sustainable philosophy, Zegna is partnering with Green Pea to create a new shop-in-shop at the world’s first Green Retail Park in Turin, showcasing us as one of the most sustainable fashion luxury brands. Based on a true respect for earth and nature, Green Pea shares our company’s conscious mindset. With a 200m2space, the Zegna shop features an exclusive selection of our most iconic products, including the #UseTheExisting project, representing our commitment to sustainability. Launched with the Ermenegildo Zegna XXX F/W2019 collection, #UseTheExisting embodies our pledge to use more and more natural and technical fabrics developed with innovative processes from pre-existing and post-consumer sources with the aim to make the dream of zero waste possible. It’s a vision that perfectly complements Green Pea’s mission to feature high-quality products created using materials that are in harmony with nature. It’s an authentic vision requiring an individual commitment to meet a collective purpose.       “In an ever-changing world, luxury companies can simply adapt to changes or choose to be a positive force in driving these changes. Our responsibility is to leverage our past to build a better present and future. This carries over into everything we do, following our founder’s legacy. I’m very pleased that Zegna is part of the Green Pea project, partnering with Oscar Farinetti who shares the same sustainability ethos with us”, says Gildo Zegna, CEO of Ermenegildo Zegna.     Zegna’s offering within Green Pea will also include an exclusive Made to Measure brand experience featuring a unique selection of products and textiles, such as ACHILLFARMTMwool that comes directly from our own farm in Australia, and 12MILMIL12 woven from our luxurious, superfine Australian wool. Moreover, Zegna offers Green Pea’s customers a selection of handmade products developed in collaboration with the San Patrignano community and an exclusive new range of OASI Zegna cashmere plaids made with #UseTheExisting fabric. Beyond our products, customers will also have the opportunity to experience OASI Zegna first-hand in a scaled-down version of the nature park thoughtfully replicated outside its original environment: a walking pathway showcasing a total of 14 different botanical species on the building’s terrace, mapping out the history of our green lung OASI Zegna.

adidas for Prada Two Icons of Design and Innovation Come Together to Launch the A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 silhouette

Accessories The next iteration of the Adidas and Prada partnership has arrived. Until now, the two brands manifested their collaboration through a specific perspective as Prada brought its distinct lens to adidas, reinterpreting the Superstar sneaker with expert craftsmanship. For the next stage in the ongoing partnership, adidas brings its expertise to Prada, creating the forward thinking A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 silhouette for the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team.     Both Prada and adidas have continually expressed an innate passion for athletic performance. Prada has participated in the oldest trophy in sport, the America’s Cup, for over two decades with the Luna Rossa sailing team; adidas’ continuous commitment to pioneering sporting innovation and precision technology has also extended to the America’s Cup, as the brand equipped a challenger team between 2005 and 2007.     Crafted for the sport of sailing, the A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 is inspired by the design of the new AC75 Luna Rossa boat as well as iconic Prada and adidas sneakers from the past. Celebrating a shared legacy of sporting excellence and designed as an extension of the athlete’s body, thesilhouette features a sleek, lightweight look and feel, matched with flexible barefoot stability. While the performance-focused shoes will be worn in competition by the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team, a lifestyle version will be available for purchase.     Fueled by a combined dedication to innovation and sustainability, the A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 serves as a collaborative step toward both brands' commitments for the environment. The upper is composed of PRIMEGREEN, a series of high-performance recycled materials, which is then complimented by a hydrophobic E-TPU outer shell, providing flexible, breathable support and preventing water from penetrating the silhouette. The sneaker’s ergonomically designed EVA tongue and perforated, soft, synthetic-suede inner saddle accentuate its sailing performance capabilities. Moreover, the sneaker features a perforated BOOST midsole as well as a wrap-around outsole to provide elevated protection, durability, and freedom of movement. The specially crafted laces which have been designed to be narrow at the bottom, enabling Speed Lacing, and wider at the top, preventing tied knots from coming open easily during competition. The silhouette then comes packaged in a sleek co- branded box that slips inside of a custom water-resistant pouch-bag.     Accompanying the launch of the silhouette is an elegantly shot campaign, which explores the sensation of lightness through visual depictions of luminosity and weightlessness.     Serving as the next evolution of this forward-thinking partnership, the adidas for Prada A+P LUNA ROSSA 21 silhouette launches globally in a white colorway on December 9 2020, via Prada boutiques and adidas flagship stores worldwide, alongside selected wholesalers. The range is also available via prada.com and adidas.com.     #adidasforPrada The next iteration of the Adidas and Prada partnership has arrived.

GUCCI IS SUPPORTING UNICEF USA TO HELP FUND THE SUPPLY AND EQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF A SAFE COVID-19 VACCINE WITH A US$500,000 DONATION AND A 21-DAY MATCHING CHALLENGE

Culture Gucci continues in its commitment to fight the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic by making a donation of US$500,000 to UNICEF USA on behalf of the #GucciCommunity, to ensure the future COVID-19 vaccine is equitably procured and distributed in the most vulnerable communities around the world.     To encourage global solidarity for this work and further calling on its community, Gucci will also match funds raised for UNICEF's work, dollar for dollar, up to an additional USD $100,000 through the “21-day challenge”. Contributions made through https://gucci.benevity.org/community from Dec 5 until Dec 26, 2020, are eligible for this match.     “As the pandemic threatens the hard-won gains to protect and advance child’s rights around the world, UNICEF is working on the equitable global supply and distribution of a safe COVID-19 vaccine when available,” said Michael J. Nyenhuis, President & CEO, UNICEF USA. “UNICEF USA is incredibly grateful for Gucci’s support to help rally global solidarity on this work and their commitment to help every child survive and thrive.”     “No one is truly free unless we are all free: this also includes being free from sickness – said Marco Bizzarri, President and CEO, Gucci. Now that a COVID-19 vaccine appears to be ready for use, the true challenge is ensuring that it is procured and distributed fairly. This is why,  under the “We Are All In This Together” call to action we launched in March, we are today announcing a donation of $500,000 to UNICEF USA, to help in securing COVID-19 vaccines to the world’s most vulnerable communities. Over the next 21 days, everyone is invited to give their donations, large or small, which Gucci will match, up to a maximum of an additional $100,000.     This is a global battle, a global effort – continued Bizzarri  - and the commitment also needs to be global.”     Gucci is answering UNICEF’s global call for support for COVAX, the vaccine pillar of the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator, an innovative global collaboration organised to accelerate the development and production of, and equitable access to, COVID-19 tests, treatments and vaccines.     The global pandemic is not simply a health emergency, it is also a child rights crisis, which threatens to have lasting effects for the progress of an entire generation.      Global equitable access to a vaccine, through which healthcare workers and those most at risk can be protected, is the only way to mitigate the public health and economic impact of the pandemic, and this is what COVAX is designed to deliver.     Gucci’s donation will support UNICEF’s work in preparing for the roll-out of a safe vaccine, including logistics to forecast demand, the preparation of cold chains (temperature-controlled supply chains) and the advance purchasing of supplies. Furthermore, UNICEF will receive Gucci’s help to fund immunisation programming to build the capacity of local healthcare systems, and to ensure community awareness and mobilisation to make certain there is demand for vaccines when they arrive.     Gucci has a long history of partnering with UNICEF on many projects, however in choosing to work with the organisation in this instance the House is allying itself to an expert in the area of vaccine procurement and distribution. UNICEF is uniquely positioned to prepare for what could be the largest, most rapid vaccination programme the world has seen to date.     Already, UNICEF procures more than two billion doses of vaccines annually for routine immunisation and outbreak response on behalf of nearly 100 countries, making it the largest single vaccine buyer in the world; it has also been working on health systems-strengthening for the past 70 years and understands and supports the role of a grassroots approach to help positive health outcomes at community level.      Currently, UNICEF is leading efforts to procure and supply COVID-19 vaccines for more than 180 countries on behalf of the COVAX Facility. The COVAX Facility is open to all countries to ensure that no country is left without access to a future COVID-19 vaccine.     Gucci’s contribution to UNICEF will go towards activities such as: test kits helping to stop community transmission; cold chain equipment to keep doses of vaccines effective as UNICEF delivers them to low- and middle-income countries; the cost of transport of vaccines; oxygen concentrators with accessories to deliver oxygen therapy and monitoring to patients; and face masks to keep protecting personnel on the ground.     #GucciCommunity #UNICEFWontStop Gucci continues in its commitment to fight the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic by making a donation of US$500,000 to UNICEF USA on behalf of the #GucciCommunity, to ensure the future COVID-19 vaccine is equitably procured and distributed in the most vulnerable communities around the world.     To encourage global solidarity for this work and further calling on its community, Gucci will also match funds raised for UNICEF's work, dollar for dollar, up to an additional USD $100,000 through the “21-day challenge”.

ZENDAYA IS THE NEW FACE OF MAISON VALENTINO

Fashion Zendaya enters the world of values of Pierpaolo Piccioli, which is resignifying the Codes of the Brand, creating new connections between past, present and an imaginary future. For the Creative Director of Valentino, the actress is a natural representative of his contemporary concept of romanticism.     The perception of identity within the contemporary community is the essential element of Piccioli’s creative process, which opens the individual’s vision to a poetry that belongs to reality, that aims to the creation of a personal imaginary made of self-expression and not of aspirations. An imaginary where it is possible to feel empathy. Awareness, inclusion, empathy and contemporary romanticism are the values that the Creative Director conveys to the Valentino community.     Zendaya and Pierpaolo share the identity values of a generation she speaks for, in her most spontaneous, personal and progressive way.     “The reason why we chose Zendaya as the new face for Valentino is because she perfectly embodies and represents what Valentino is and stands for, today. She is a powerful and fierce young woman that uses her talent and her work to express herself, her values and her generation as well.”Pierpaolo Piccioli     “I am honored to have been chosen as the face of Valentino. I’m so excited to begin this amazing collaboration with Pierpaolo and the entire Valentino family.”  Zendaya     #VALENTINOGARAVANI #ROMANSTUD Zendaya enters the world of values of Pierpaolo Piccioli, which is resignifying the Codes of the Brand, creating new connections between past, present and an imaginary future. For the Creative Director of Valentino, the actress is a natural representative of his contemporary concept of romanticism.     The perception of identity within the contemporary community is the essential element of Piccioli’s creative process, which opens the individual’s vision to a poetry that belongs to reality, that aims to the creation of a personal imaginary made of self-expression and not of aspirations.
