Fashion Exclusive editorial captured by Nina Raasch. An editorial shot in the empty streets of a usually crowded Mallorca. The same girl, while wearing different looks, is duplicated in each picture. What appears to be a busy street scene, turns out to be a one-girl-story. While capturing the melancholy of an empty holiday summer town, it's a story about spending time with oneself and at the same time being content without constant company of others. fashion stylist: Charlotte Gindreau hair and make up artist: Sabina Pinsone model Tory @ Modelwerk Exclusive editorial captured by Nina Raasch.

My Twin Collection by Messika

Jewelry Kate Moss, Sylvia Hoeks, Joan Smalls... For her next campaign,Valérie Messika has chosen to cast three contemporary icons that break the codes of Parisian jewelry.   “I wanted to create a trio of girls, a gang that would represent women in their diversity and each of whom, whatever their age, would embody a type of beauty“, says Valérie Messika.     “Kate Moss has always been my muse, she is a Legend of fashion and a rock n’ roll icon. Kate is above all a free woman. As for Dutch actress Sylvia Hoeks, she seduced me with her personality and her character. Finally, I chose Joan Smalls for her spectacular physique. She gives off a very contemporary glamour.     Beyond jewelry, this trio has an attitude. They are strong women who breathe their own style into jewelry. They in uence diamonds and not the other way around. This is, in fact, the main characteristic of Messika’s jewelry.” Created by Mert & Marcus, this campaign infuses crazy energy into the Messika collections : the energy of diamonds. This new chapter is dedicated to My Twin collection - a perfect alliance of the elegant emerald cut and the curved pear cut.     With Kate Moss and Sylvia Hoeks, Messika celebrates the perfect union between the pear, emerald and oval cuts of the My Twin collection. As our muses, they add a nishing touch to these iconic pieces for a striking yet delicate result. Messika’s renown My Twin collection, suggests a new way of sealing one’s love, via the unexpected union of different cut diamonds. The different stones sit in contrast and harmony with each other. The pear cut diamond, which is both sensual and dazzling, marries with the emerald cut, which is more stylised and hypnotic, or even the oval cut, which is sweet and gentle. In the paired version, My Twin reinterprets the classic Toi & Moi iIn an architectural way where the emerald and pear stones are drawn to each other. In the trio style, Valerie Messika combines three cuts of diamonds and pays tribute to her favourite number. She takes it a step further by imagining an union where the juxtaposed diamonds celebrate endless love. My Twin proposes modern and elegant jewelleries that are engaged in a dance of light.   Explore the collection on Messika.com Kate Moss, Sylvia Hoeks, Joan Smalls... For her next campaign,Valérie Messika has chosen to cast three contemporary icons that break the codes of Parisian jewelry.   “I wanted to create a trio of girls, a gang that would represent women in their diversity and each of whom, whatever their age, would embody a type of beauty“, says Valérie Messika.     “Kate Moss has always been my muse, she is a Legend of fashion and a rock n’ roll icon.

BOSS to expand Responsible Tailoring collections

Fashion This Spring/Summer 2020 season, BOSS underlines its commitment to a more sustainable approach to fashion, with a focus on premium tailoring. The brand is building on the success of its Traceable Wool designs by adding womenswear pieces to the range, and launching a fully vegan suit, free of all animal-based materials, as part of its menswear collection.   The women’s designs in traceable merino wool offer vivid spring blues and traffic- stopping red alongside timeless navy. A perfectly cut single-button jacket showcases the impeccable tailored aesthetic of BOSS Womenswear, and can be paired with a choice of wide-leg, cropped, or tapered pants in the same fabric. Pinstriped navy tailoring – two jackets, a skirt, pants, and a dress, all designed to be mixed and matched – completes the capsule.   Highlights of the men’s collection for Spring/Summer 2020 include a pinstriped wool jersey suit with drawstring pants, a summary lightweight slim-fit suit, athleisure- inspired tapered pants with cuffed hems, and an elevated polo design. This season, BOSS Menswear offers more responsibly tailored styles than ever before.   The newly introduced vegan suit is a modern slim-fit design with a lightweight construction. Available in three colors – light beige, dark blue, and black – it is crafted in Germany from pure certified organic European grown linen. All components which, in a traditional premium suit, would contain materials such as wool or horsehair, have been omitted or replaced with vegan alternatives. This ensures that the entire item is free from animal-based materials.   This Spring/Summer 2020 season, BOSS underlines its commitment to a more sustainable approach to fashion, with a focus on premium tailoring.

McQueen's Creative Community

Fashion Building on the idea of our creative community which underpins so many Alexander McQueen collections, today the house announces a new project encouraging creativity.   McQueen Creators is conceived to inspire and initiate creative conversation. Starting from today, their followers will be invited to engage artistically with their favourite pieces from a selection of images shared on our social channels. A selection of this work will then be republished across our social media networks. Each week a new creative concept will be released. These will connect their followers with their own McQueen teams and collaborators, from their design studio to universities and students, through a series of digital tutorials. The first week’s inspiration is taken from the Roses installation at Alexander McQueen’s New Bond Street open studio. Together we will be sketching the finale Rose dress from Autumn/Winter 2019. Future projects for the community will include 3-D creation and embroidery from home, amongst other initiatives to be announced via their social channels (bellow).   #McQueenCreators @AlexanderMcQueen Building on the idea of our creative community which underpins so many Alexander McQueen collections, today the house announces a new project encouraging creativity.   McQueen Creators is conceived to inspire and initiate creative conversation.

LIU JO releases the new Sport collection for Spring & Summer

LIU JO releases the new Sport collection for Spring & Summer

Fashion A collection made to dress a cosmopolitan, ironic and feminine woman, who has made a perfect balance between comfort and style her signature: this is the Liu Jo Sportcollection that, in the Spring/Summer 2020 season, is focussed on the development of new fits, colours and shapes, on unusual combinations and on colour. And colour is just the star of the next season: from the softer shades of the first pieces to the vibrant, rich shades of summer, it tells about the many sides of a femininity that unleashes its full potential in the warmer months. So, in Spring, we find a mix of black and white (also featuring on the entire collection), Lotus and red, while, as the season goes on, it is pink, purple and fuchsia that take centre stage and are lit up with touches of Verde Germoglio – the shade that also closes the last part of the range, in tune with Belize and Verde Salvia.    In the early season, pride of place is given to sweatshirts, especially a range that combines cotton and viscose with lace in matching shades, the surface (like the T-shirts) dazzling with a special all-over frostedfinish; they should be worn with a pleated lace skirt. There are also plenty of clothes in super-trendy neoprene, softened by a silver chain piping, to be matched with T-shirts with or without fringes and logos, and with pieces where viscose is mixed with satin – also available on pants and shorts – with a multi-logo made of embroideries, glitters or metallic threads. The world of metals also thrives in a capsule of shiny, engineered items, for an unmistakable sparkling effect, while knits in viscose blend, tulle and jacquard complete everything. For the early Spring, outerwear includes comfy, super-light quilted jackets with metallic details: a long jacket with a sparkling glittery back and a quilted jacket with details of metallic rings and a matching jacket case.   As the season goes on, the world of pinks – from pale pink to bright purple – steals the limelight: here, again, there are plenty of cotton sweatshirts in block colours with sequinned details and an iconic logoed tape, or viscose pieces trimmed in striped ribs and full-studded details. Research in new volumes is key: the cotton sweatshirts that steal the show are the most innovative ones, those that look like kaftans, or the super-comfy oversized sleeveless ones; both are decorated with shiny trimmings. Now, the pieces in Milano ribs, the collection’s must-have pieces, see special combinations with mesh in matching colours and details of iridescent rhinestones, while there’s a profusion of photographic prints that thrive on ironic, colourful oversized versions. This inspirational world is ideally finished off by rib-knit pants, a pair of shorts and a blouse, while the matching knits include a mix of colours, mesh and metallic yarns, playfully lighting up the first sunny days; outerwear includes a parka jacket with rhinestone details, a coloured nylon set, oversized rain jackets in block colours or in ‘running’ style, and a sparkling jacket with full-sequinned details on one side. Lastly, the special pieces include T-shirts with new volumes and above all a new tulle skirt (with shorts underneath) and a full-sequinned leotard, available in different colours: to shine, every single day. With the arrival of the fine season, the most vibrant, lively colours tinge the collection with a tough attitude. The fabrics get even lighter, and there’s a riot of light cotton, organza, jersey and mesh, here. Clothes keep shining with fully sequinned sections and ombre prints, while attention is focussed on tropical-inspired pieces in cotton interlock (a pattern that recurs in a special Active capsule) and light, summery stretchy jersey. Here, metallic knits can be found on the most special pieces, paired with jersey, such as cotton matched with organza, so light and dreamlike. In addition, the hot summery days are dressed in a plethora of cotton and viscose jersey dresses, the most outstanding ones being striped with lace details.    In addition, as many as three different sets have been built around the more ‘Active’ world, which is going stronger than ever: in solid Lycra mixed with tulle and a matt material, in Lycra mixed with stretchy lace – plain or printed –, in stretchy jersey decorated with embroidered sequins. Engineered fabrics are also used for the world of « bottoms », which includes six high-tech stretchy pants, either ‘thick’ or loose, as well as a few pieces in eco-sustainable cotton and recycled polyester; the same focus on the world of eco-sustainability also looks to the world of sweatshirts and T-shirts, in organic cotton and natural materials.    Lastly, the entire collection is completed by ironic, trendy accessories to be worn every day with a casual attitude: belt bags, mesh and sequin backpacks, a bag that can double up as a backpack, transparent and colourful shoppers, satin and mesh totes and shoulder bags, and even coloured neoprene bags; this is a truly wide range and can be matched with anything, and it has been designed for women who love to play with their outfits, adding an ironic touch with baseball caps with rhinestones, in nylon or with fun brims, to face the sunny days in style.  A collection made to dress a cosmopolitan, ironic and feminine woman, who has made a perfect balance between comfort and style her signature: this is the Liu Jo Sportcollection that, in the Spring/Summer 2020 season, is focussed on the development of new fits, colours and shapes, on unusual combinations and on colour.
