Eclectic Nomad

Fashion The Eclectic Nomad Collection by EDITED gets us in the mood for summer with a super-trendy mix of sunshine styles. From boho and batik to sporty, the new looks effortlessly combine a wide variety of fashion references to celebrate summer and the 80s.   The 1980s are a key theme in the collection: power shoulders, accentuated sleeve designs and high waists with wide belts set the tone. Details from this unforgettable fashion decade are teamed up with new inspiration; a deliberate play on contrasts flows through the collection. Typical 80s shapes meet romantic boho patterns and flounces. Pastel shades and batik fabrics are mixed with bright-colored sportswear. Mesh knits and light denim styles are also part of the collection. Basics in white or nude shades bring everything together.   Brand Director Franziska Nellessen and the EDITED production team shot the collection lookbook with model Ilya Vermeulen in Cape Town.   The collection was designed by Design Director Clarissa Labin and her team in Berlin.   The Eclectic Nomad Collection is available from April 2, 2020 at EDITED.nl and in all EDITED stores.

New collaboration between Koche & Eastpak

New collaboration between Koche & Eastpak

Accessories In their first-time collaboration, Eastpak and KOCHÉ are celebrating the crossover of sports, street culture, and craftsmanship. The collection deconstructs some of Eastpak’s classic designs, reimagining them in the hexagonal patch style of a soccer ball. Shaped by an athletic aesthetic, the four-style collection features stand-out stitching and a vibrant mix of fabrics. Three colorways include the KOCHÉ Black patchwork of different black fabrics, the soccer jersey-inspired KOCHÉ Multi, and the embossed PU KOCHÉ Snake.   We had a chance to speak with Christelle Kocher about the collaboration:   Can you tell us more about the Koché x Eastpak collection? What was the inspiration behind the collection? The KOCHÉ x EASTPAK collection was based on patchwork and football imagery. I played with the hexagons that you find on soccer balls. It is very graphic patterns.   Can you tell us more about the inspiration behind the Snakeskin print? And behind the football print? It was fun to use the codes of luxury with snakeskin for a popular product. Of course, it is fake skin. It is interesting to mix codes of two different universes: rare and luxurious skins with popular bags inspired by soccer culture!   Why did you choose to work with these styles? And which one is your favorite piece? I love the KOCHÉ x EASTPAK Padded Pak’R. The best of our two brands in one bag.   Is this collaboration a direct reference to your SS20 collection? Definitely yes! The pieces were shown on my Spring Summer 2020 show during Paris Fashion Week. They are 100% part of my world, 100% part of my collection. However, I feel that they are kind of easy to wear with a lot of outfits. They are not reserved for a certain period of the year or season.   Did you design the apparel collection and the Eastpak accessories together or was the apparel collection already created? The 2 collections evolved in parallel. It was important for me. This is how I see collaborations. It must be organically linked, otherwise it does not work.

Filling Pieces release new skate-inspired Spate silhouette

Fashion The Spate is the latest offering within the brand’s Signature footwear collection and is described by its creator as “a contemporary twist on a traditionally modest design”. Influenced by the fluid motion of skateboarding, the campaign toys with perspective as we know it. Vanishing points lost as new angles are created. Shadows appear to disrupt the illusion, pinning the focus firmly back on the subject. Crafted from Filling Pieces’ classic matt-Nappa or suede colour combinations, the Spate incorporates design elements from several well-known styles within the Signature collection. A perforated toe cap, woven branding and contrasting mesh heel collar attribute to a more sporty appearance, whilst signature luxury elements including the leather lining and hand-finished detailing remain as standard. Filling Pieces’ SS20 campaign celebrates the concept of family in all its forms - not limited to the biological and highlighting the kinship between friends, collectives and communities united by their diversities. The Spate has been designed as a style to appeal to all - continuing the brand’s ethos of bridging-the-gap between cultures and societies.   Videography @felix_aaron Photographer @luckarsten Models @jasonharderwijk @lisrutten Assistance @johnathanbaena MUAH @laurayard The Spate is the latest offering within the brand’s Signature footwear collection and is described by its creator as “a contemporary twist on a traditionally modest design”.

CHANEL releases the new eyewear campaign

Accessories The singer Angèle, the actresses Isabelle Adjani and Margaret Qualley, and the musicians Sébastien Tellier and Pharrell Williams: five artists and five unique creative worlds light up the CHANEL Spring-Summer 2020 eyewear campaign with their aura, photographed by Karim Sadli. All of them have a special relationship with Virginie Viard, Artistic Director of CHANEL's Fashion collections. For this campaign, they chose their favourite pair of glasses from the collection. Five eyewear designs for one single attitude: one that allows everyone to assert their style.    Each pair of sunglasses highlights the originality of these inspiring faces. For Angèle, it's an oval design with a transparent acetate frame that contrasts with the metal temples attached to a necklace of grey faux pearls. Margaret Qualley's mischievous face peeps out from behind a butterfly frame in black metal, also linked with a string of pearls, this time in white. We can only guess at Isabelle Adjani's enigmatic gaze behind large square sunglasses in a black acetate with the name CHANEL inlaid like a jewelled hair slide along one of the temples. The XL rectangular shield worn by Sébastien Tellier honours the tweed that swathes its frame. The double C takes shape as a patch and signs the temples. Finally, an oversized rectangular design in black acetate worn by the CHANEL ambassador Pharrell Williams, is embellished with fine metal plaques engraved with a motif that evokes a woven tweed.    Discover the Spring-Summer 2020 Eyewear campaign from March 2020.   #CHANELEyewear #CHANELSunglasses The singer Angèle, the actresses Isabelle Adjani and Margaret Qualley, and the musicians Sébastien Tellier and Pharrell Williams: five artists and five unique creative worlds light up the CHANEL Spring-Summer 2020 eyewear campaign with their aura, photographed by Karim Sadli. All of them have a special relationship with Virginie Viard, Artistic Director of CHANEL's Fashion collections.

Moose Knuckles release the new Spring & Summer campaign

Moose Knuckles release the new Spring & Summer campaign

Fashion Canada’s notoriously intrepid and much acclaimed outwearbrand, Moose Knuckles, debuts its Spring/Summer 2020 campaign ‘Surf Rodeo’, featuring skateboarder and surfer, Evan Mock, his brother, Alika Mock, Canadian model, Melrose Boyer, and Hawaiian surfer and model, Malia Murphy. The campaign, shot on the North Shore of Hawaii, infuses cowboy aesthetics and metropolitan sensibilities for the Spring/Summer 2020 Collection. Styled and co-creative directed by Hawaiian creative, Taylor Okata,and shot by photographer Alana Spencer, sister to Evan and Alika Mock, the Spring/Summer 2020 campaign ties in the feeling of family, Ohana, and celebrates the history and shared culture between Canada and Hawaii. Predating the Wild West, Captain George Vancouver, British Naval officer and explorer, gifted cattle to King Kamehameha I, founder and first ruler of the Kingdom of Hawaii. The King then requested that Mexican vaqueros travel from California to Hawaii to teach their cowboy lifestyle throughout the Islands, what Hawaiians then labeled as “paniolo’ – Hawaiian cowboys. The storyline of the campaign further embodies the Hawaiian way of life; It portrays a group of friends on a Hawaiian adventure that leads them from a beautiful horse ranch to a beach bonfire with the cast ending the day in a sunset surf session. “Moose Knuckles takes a trip to Cowtown, an affectionate nickname for Calgary, the Alberta city steeped in Western culture,” Tu Ly, Moose Knuckles’ VP of Design, explains. Inspired by the Calgary Stampede, one of the world’s largest rodeos, we reinterpreted the stampede’s rich heritage as the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth to perpetuate the greatest outerwear brand in the nation.” The Spring/Summer 2020 Collection features a variety of lightweight quilted jackets, rainwear, seam-sealed parkas, fitted down jackets, and elevated country-influenced pieces – all in a color palette inspired by the grasslands of the Canadian Prairies, provoking a feeling of nostalgia. The standout piece of the season is a bleached denim jacket with suede fringe in a dramatized 80’s silhouette. This season’s collection includes graphic treatments, ranging from thematic horseshoes to humble “Eat Your Greens Broccoli.” The hardworking looks for the collection are designed with Moose Knuckles’ logo-patterned bandanas. Rounding out the Spring/Summer 2020 Collection, Moose Knuckles introduces custom, hand-made, python and kangaroo cowboy boots with inlay designs made by the Alberta Boot Company.  #MKSurfRodeo https://www.mooseknucklescanada.com/ Canada’s notoriously intrepid and much acclaimed outwearbrand, Moose Knuckles, debuts its Spring/Summer 2020 campaign ‘Surf Rodeo’, featuring skateboarder and surfer, Evan Mock, his brother, Alika Mock, Canadian model, Melrose Boyer, and Hawaiian surfer and model, Malia Murphy.

G-Star RAW guerrilla show

G-Star RAW guerrilla show

Fashion Week On Saturday evening, March 7, Felice Noordhoff opened the G-Star RAW guerrilla show, which literally took travelers and guests through 30 years of denim innovation in the Metro from North to South. The show - a collaboration between G-Star, Amsterdam Fashion Week and the GVB - turned out to be a surprising combination of three Amsterdam brands. Influencers, press and friends of the brand gathered at Metro Station North of the North / South Line. The surprise was great when everyone was asked to board the metro, together with unsuspecting travelers in possession of a valid GVB ticket. During the ride from North to South, models displayed a combination of G-Star RAW icons, such as the 5620 G-Star Elwood, artwork from shows from New York Fashion Week and new Hardcore Denim styles, among others - without interrupting normal service. The unprecedented manifesto of G-Star was evident during the show: dedicated to denim's fabric, craft, culture and history. Gwenda van Vliet, CMO of G-Star RAW: 'We have been innovating in the field of denim for 30 years. We wanted to show this in a unique way. A guerrilla show in a subway tunnel - that's G-Star RAW.

The show - a collaboration between G-Star, Amsterdam Fashion Week and the GVB - turned out to be a surprising combination of three Amsterdam brands. Influencers, press and friends of the brand gathered at Metro Station North of the North / South Line. The surprise was great when everyone was asked to board the metro, together with unsuspecting travelers in possession of a valid GVB ticket. During the ride from North to South, models displayed a combination of G-Star RAW icons, such as the 5620 G-Star Elwood, artwork from shows from New York Fashion Week and new Hardcore Denim styles, among others - without interrupting normal service. The unprecedented manifesto of G-Star was evident during the show: dedicated to denim's fabric, craft, culture and history.

LADY D-LITE

Accessories Embodying the quintessence of the House’s spirit, the Lady Dior stands out for its architectural lines, symbolic of the excellence in savoir-faire of the Dior Ateliers. The iconic bag is reinvented for the spring-summer 2020 ready-to-wear collection in a fully embroidered version, reflecting Dior’s exclusive know-how, called Lady D-Lite. Its creation is the result of a unique ritual: the realization of 3-D tone-on-tone embroideries based on the Cannage motif, followed by the meticulous assembly work on a wooden form, ending with a special finish that makes the bag more hard-wearing for everyday use. The metallic parts – including clasps, eyelets and reinterpreted charms in tribute to the lucky tokens Monsieur Dior always had on him – further enhance this emblem of elegance. Each intricately thought- out detail contributes to its beauty, including the “Christian Dior” signature that punctuates its timeless, graphic style. Delivered with a matching strap, this new object of desire is available in gray, black, beige, pink and white in order to adapt to every look. Requiring infinite precision, the bag’s fabrication involves a combination of passion and patience. This creation can also be personalized at exclusive Dior events. more on dior.com Embodying the quintessence of the House’s spirit, the Lady Dior stands out for its architectural lines, symbolic of the excellence in savoir-faire of the Dior Ateliers.
