Givenchy Fall & Winter 2020 women's ready to wear collection

Fashion Week “My work is my body, my body is my work” – Helena Almeida The body language of powerful women intimates mysterious expressions of sensuality. It provokes a chain reaction and stirs a symphony of characters. Designed by Clare Waight Keller, the Givenchy collection for Autumn Winter 2020 carries a silver screen allure: harking back to the imperfect beauty of an elusive arthouse heroine. From the actress’ sultry gaze to the bodily gestures of human sculpture, lines are drawn between the gritty heyday of French cinema and musings on performance art. The collection punctuates Givenchy’s sartorial canon with a distinctly graphic story in a Mod palette blocked out in black, white and cherry red, tobacco, carnelian and cobalt. Raw cut and collaged fabrics liberate masterful volumes with an untamed elegance, as shirred blouses and knife-pleated shifts are bonded with mulberry silk crêpe, and pagoda shoulder cape and coat styles are cut in fine double-faced Melton. Tailoring is languid: high-waist flares piped with contrast tones, peak lapel blazers, and a reversible duster coat lined in smooth leather. Sculpted knits and plush faux furs hug the body in shadowy folds. Riffing on the apostrophe, the stripe and the square, patterns and embroideries adorn mid-century shapes in cascading pleats and embroideries, from liquid silver sequins to showers of plumage, tinsel, tassels and bugle beading. The Autumn Winter 2020 accessories collection sees a slim wedge or sandal laced up the ankle, and the Haute Couture ‘ombrelle’ hat return in soft felt. Articulated mobile pendants and pearls hang as body jewels. Designed by Clare Waight Keller, the GV3 returns in glossy spazzolato leather or tri-colour suede, and the Antigona Soft bagappears in its signature colors, wrapped in archive print silk foulards or inflated as a zipped and pleated pouch. more on givenchy.com   “My work is my body, my body is my work” – Helena Almeida The body language of powerful women intimates mysterious expressions of sensuality.

O'neill is ready for an endless Summer fuelled by nostalgia

O'neill is ready for an endless Summer fuelled by nostalgia

Fashion With their signature Californian surf attitude and a fresh take on the fusion between sports and fashion, O’Neill is ready for an endless summer fuelled by nostalgia for SS20. Inspired by the Californian sun, the collection’s campaign and brand’s core message for the season promotes a joyful exploration of summer style, friendship, being young and of shared experiences. This continues O’Neill’s message that summer is more than just a season. It’s a feeling. The pursuit of life and good vibes in all forms is supported by O’Neill’s path of innovation with the O’Neill Blue line. An initiative to create a more sustainable approach to apparel. The result sees recycled plastic from around the beaches & shorelines be turned into high performance eco threads and yarns that are then used to create the line of board shorts, bikinis, t-shirts, dresses and sweatshirts. The continued collaboration with BIONIC YARN, REPREVE and ECONYL is one of O’Neill’s many sustainability efforts. As a result, 100% of the SS20 bikini collection is produced with sustainable fabrics. O’Neill manages to resignify the context in which we see ocean protection – showcasing a commitment to making a difference in the industry, whilst giving sustainable clothing personality and fun through a connection to modern art, bold colour use and abstract shapes. Throughout, O’Neill combines its innovative technology from their core water sports, such as the O’Neill Hyperdry with smart t and intersects it with fashion. Seen not only in the new line of swimwear that is inspired by athletic wear, but across the entire collection. O’Neill manages to take the modern surfer from board to beach effortlessly, putting them in vintage inspired resort looks that have been interpreted for the streets. Comprised of ve themes: Modern Retro, Athleisure, California Surf Lifestyle, Water & Sun, and O’Neill Blue – the collection of menswear, womenswear and childrenswear features wearable pieces that easily adapt for a life at the beach, or the city. Collection highlights see the 70’s mixed with a modern surf attitude. With a vintage colour palette & casual silhouette, the use of soft fabrics and prints in saturated tones is juxtaposed with the 90’s obsession that shines through elsewhere. O’Neill’s new collection is then set to appeal to a wide range of customers. O’Neill, where It’s Always Summer on the Inside.

Introducing the Gucci psychedelic campaign

Introducing the Gucci psychedelic campaign

Fashion There is a new take on the famous GG logo, and it is all about colour, energy, impact and a dreamlike spirit. Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele has taken the GG logo and playfully reinterpreted it with a streetwear attitude through the addition of a multicolour stars motif to create a thoroughly contemporary and distinctive pattern. The approach channels the spirit of ‘70s psychedelia, which played with visual distortion, surreal imagery and wide colour spectrums. Using this new version of the monogram, which is formed by combining it with rainbow-hued stars, Alessandro Michele has imagined a highly decorative and distinctive pattern that is now applied to different pieces of luggage such as backpacks and shoulder bags, which, in a layering of colour contrasts, also have black, pink and green leather trim. The look has been rolled out to men’s and women’s ready-to-wear pieces too to deliver a wide-ranging streetwear offer as well as more elegant pieces. The new colourful logo treatment also features on women’s and men's shoes, small leather goods and a watch, and inspires a range of fine jewelry. Together, these pieces form the new GG Psychedelic Collection. For women, the ready-to-wear pieces in the GG Psychedelic print come predominantly in silk and jersey, and as knitwear. In silk twill there is a refined group of a pyjama set, an ensemble of shirt and pleated skirt, and a chemiser dress. The jersey selection is more street in attitude: a hooded tracksuit jacket that can be paired with matching shorts, a windbreaker, and a dress featuring a drawstring at the waist (a key detail of the season). For warmer weather, there is a cardigan and a short-sleeve top, both in 100% wool. For men, there are key items in the new Psychedelic monogram that have a sporty spirit. A technical jersey tracksuit is comprised of a zip-up hooded over-jacket with piping detail, combined with matching   trousers. A long nylon windbreaker and a nylon waistcoat with a quilted lining add a distinctly streetwear note, while a swimsuit in the same fabric has a quirky resort look. Finally, a bowling set of loose shirt and short trousers comes in a washed silk twill, bringing a refined twist to the offer for men. In terms of luggage, there is an extensive selection of pieces in the GG Psychedelic pattern, all trimmed with either black, green or pink leather. Many styles are from the Cruise 2020 Collection, and all combine fashionability with functionality. Given the rock heritage of psychedelia, a key piece is a rigid guitar case. In addition to this there are four styles of shoulder bag, four backpacks, a belt bag, two duffle bags, a hard hat case in two sizes, soft and hard suitcases and trolley bags. Small leather goods in the new pattern make great gifts. These are: a pouch, basic wallets, a zip-around wallet, two card cases and smartphone covers. Shoes for men and women in the Gucci Psychedelic design include a rubber slide, a slip-on and Ace low-top sneakers. For men, there is  also a new high-top version of the iconic Ace sneaker.  The GG Psychedelic world of silk and soft accessories features a wide product offer for men and women: a silk carré and a modal-silk shawl (both available with a black or pink frame), a baseball cap with a mesh back, a fedora hat, a visor, a pair of socks and a water-resistant hoodie, with its matching pouch. In addition, there is a selection of fine jewellery that references the colours of the GG Psychedelic pattern through the use of coloured gemstones (in addition to diamonds). This includes a new range of jewellery featuring Gucci’s distinctive Lionhead motif, as well as pieces from established Gucci fine jewellery lines: Le Marché des Merveilles and GG Running among others. A G-Timeless Contemporary watch also displays the new pattern on its face, which has a floating hologram effect. This piece represents a perfect blend of modernity and traditional watchmaking. The GG Psychedelic Collection will be available from mid of February in Gucci stores and online at gucci.com.

Givenchy presents "ID93" handbag

Accessories The House of Givenchy presents the “ID93” handbag, a style Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller presented on the spring-summer 2020 runway to complement the soft attitude and oversized volumes of her silhouettes. Named for the era defined by minimalism and flowing shapes, the ID93 draws on the essence of the Spring collection. Bandana details borrowed from runway looks blend with sensual, tactile shapes, giving this handbag distinctive character and texture. The ID93 features a supple construction with knot details, cousu retourné straps that are twisted, braided and stitched by hand, and a 2G signature enveloped in ultra-soft calf leather, complemented on some styles by theseason’s key natural material, hand-woven raffia. A subtle losange composition and a Givenchy chain motif rendered in precise perforations on leather, or as diagonal embroidery on raffia, further underscore its refinement. Consummate style and multiple functionalities mingle on three variations of the ID93, each with a roomy, zipped main compartment. The streamlined Crossbody comes with an adjustable strap, while the Medium and Large styles feature a zipped main compartment flanked on either side by open side pockets, plus two interchangeable shoulder straps — one hand-twisted and the other flat. Lastly, an elongated leather pull gives the ID93 extra practicality and an air of easy nonchalance. Retail prices for the ID93 range from 1,490 euros for the Crossbody style to 1,790 euros (Medium) and 2,450 euros (Large). The Givenchy ID93 bag will be launched in selected stores in February 2020.  More on givenchy.com The House of Givenchy presents the “ID93” handbag, a style Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller presented on the spring-summer 2020 runway to complement the soft attitude and oversized volumes of her silhouettes.

Influencers Bilal Wahib, Selma Omari, Defano Holwijn, Nesim Ahmadi, Victoria Waldau, Shayna Senior and Widya Soraya will also run a competition via their social media channels for fans to win a unique shopping experience at De Bijenkorf, where the influencers will help them pick their very own Spring 2020 TommyXLewis outfit ready to wear at the meet & greet with Lewis Hamilton.   Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collection fuses the brand’s strong menswear heritage with Lewis’ streetwear style, celebrating iconic designs that embody the modern American wardrobe. Loyalty sits at the heart of the collection, and is reflected in pieces that nod to classic archive styles. Unexpected detailing, such as reversibility, adds function to classic outerwear silhouettes; new fits are seen on hoodies and cargo pants. Military blues and greens blend with neutral tones and neon pops, infusing the classic tracksuit, bomber jacket and field jacket with a modern edge. The collaboration’s sustainability focus has advanced each season, with more than 75% of the styles in the Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collection being sourced with more sustainable materials and through partnerships that reduce negative impact in the supply chain. The latest TommyXLewis collaboration features cotton that has been 100% sourced more sustainably, including organic cotton, along with recycled materials, vegan leather alternatives, low-impact denim washes, and miDori® bioWick, a plant seed oil-based, low-carbon footprint, quick dry and wicking finishing agent.   The Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collection is available on tommy.com and in select TOMMY HILFIGER stores and wholesale locations globally.   Friends and followers of the brand are invited to join the conversation on social media using #TommyHilfiger, #TommyXLewis and #deBijenkorf as well as the handles @TommyHilfiger, @LewisHamilton and @Debijenkorf.

Diesel upcycling for 55DSL

Fashion Week DIESEL is proud to announce DIESEL UPCYCLING FOR, a new series of collections that address the need for more environmentally respectful practices in the fashion industry.   DIESEL UPCYCLING FOR is the first major initiative aligned with DIESEL’s For Responsible Livingstrategy, which focuses on a commitment to a more sustainable future, including the regular use of upcycling in production and adapting to a changing world. The strategy is based on four key pillars: Be The Alternative, Stand For The Planet, Celebrate Individuality andPromote Integrity.   Upcycling and creative reuse is the process of ‘transforming existing products, waste material and deadstock into new products’. It reduces the consumption of raw materials, as well as decreasing energy use, air and water pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions - essentially, it is the creation of something new, by using what we have already.    The brand will appoint different designers and creative minds for every new DIESEL UPCYCLING FOR collection. The aim is to showcase how upcycling can be interpreted through the creativity of the different designers and explore the endless possibilities of upcycling.    The first collection in the DIESEL UPCYCLING FOR series kicks off with a throwback partner: 55DSL. In a past forwardreinterpretation, inspiration was drawn from DIESEL’s iconic heritage denim to create a colorful, sporty aesthetic. Deadstock, archive pieces and prototypes were reworked to create a completely reimagined limited-edition product run.    DIESEL UPCYCLING FOR 55DSL takes bold dashes of color, tie-dye treatments, usage of mineral dyes, mixed materials and overlapping logos to create a fresh and bright summer lineup of only 5055 pieces, with a strong denim focus on account of DIESEL’s heritage.    Transparency is key for this collection. That’s why each piece of the DIESEL UPCYCLING FOR 55DSL has a QR code that can be scanned, directing the purchaser to a landing page that will detail the making of the garment, with a photographic timelineof all the processes used.    The capsule collection  was presented on February 22, 2020, during Milan Fashion Week. In a made now, buy nowformat, the collection will be shown in a classroom-esque live performance, with seamstresses making live pieces of the collection in front of the audience. Music will be a strong component of the experience, during which the mechanical sounds of upcycling will be played by artists, creating music through the reuse of objects.    DIESEL UPCYCLING FOR 55DSL is available from today on diesel.com, in select DIESEL flagship stores and in a network of select retailers worldwide.

New Flower by Kenzo

Beauty FLOWER BY KENZO reinvents itself in a new fragrance. The vibrant red poppy melds with the intensity of a bright pink and comes in a generous, oversized bouquet. FLOWER BY KENZO POPPY BOUQUET, a new oral Eau de Parfum that celebrates a contagious energy and the power to make the world more beautiful. A bouquet with a ery heart. A new fragrance composed four-handedly. Twenty years after the creation of FLOWER BY KENZO, Master Perfumer Alberto Morillas dreamed of a new orality in keeping with the iconic fragrance. He combined his knowhow with the passion of young perfumer Dora Baghriche. Together, they reinterpreted the bold factory signature of FLOWER BY KENZO and imagined FLOWER BY KENZO POPPY BOUQUET. In tribute to KENZO’s Japanese roots, the fresh and juicy Nashi Pear introduces a truly pop oral explosion, made of voluptuous Bulgarian Rose, luminous Jasmine and sensual Gardenia. At the base, creamy accents of Almond Wood reveal a new intensity. A captivating trail. An extraordinary persistence. An upright bottle with new freedom of expression. A new color-block poppy in a vibrant chromatic palette of red and pink. The perfect mix and match, a tribute to KENZO Fashion. One of the first couture houses to dare this duo of colors with style. One, two, three bottles of different sizes gathered side by side, and it is a graceful and generous bouquet, a joyful blossoming, a oral invasion....

FENDI Fall and Winter 2020-2021

FENDI Fall and Winter 2020-2021

Fashion Week Sometimes it’s beneath the prettiest façades that the deepest truths lie. Through the FENDI Women’s Fall/Winter 2020-2021 Collection, creative director Silvia Venturini Fendi delves into the dual personalities of la donna FENDI, charting the idiosyncrasies of her potent femininity. The subversive concept of ‘soft power’ emerges – from the boudoir to the boardroom, an expression of all things ladylike charged with emotion and ritual. Polarities of colour and texture prescribe smooth concrete greys and warm neutrals against a flush of pastels and a sunny FENDI yellow. Structure and softness dominate, asserting an illicit balance between strict austerity and sensuous abandon.    Emerging through offbeat contrasts and elegant monochromy, a heady mix of cashmere, fur, leather and lace become the pillars of this season’s FENDI wardrobe. Tailoring and outerwear is built around a nipped waist; flared officer’s coats, burnished perfectos and high-octane blazers are boned through the bodice with shoulders that plane to a flat point or drop into a Juliet sleeve. Voluptuous shapes unfurl into cozy loopback sweaters, a bonded leather accordion skirt and bibbed organdie blouses – countering the strict line of a nurse’s collar, men’s shirt stripes or corset detailing in quilted satin and felt. Revisiting animalia, a paisley of leopard spots appears in brushed wool tailoring and intarsia fur, whilst ornamentation arrives in a swathe of fringed beads or the neon shock of apricot Chantilly lace. Provocative yet restrained, a daring education from FENDI’s femme fatale is the order of the day.    The FENDI Fall/Winter 2020-2021 Accessories Collection exemplifies this season’s boudoir themes, as padded lambskin ‘brace’ booties and satin ‘suspender’ pumps elicit vampish airs.  In three sizes, a new accordion-frame Peekaboo bag opens in a deep ‘smile’ to reveal interchangeable inside pockets in smooth leather and precious skins. It appears also dipped in gold leather fringes or traced with appliqué lacework and beaded tassels. The iconic Baguette bag in handknit wool is joined leather shopper bags and charms inspired by vintage FENDI packaging, returning from the last Men’s Collection.   In collaboration with the London-based accessories brand Chaos designed by Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall, a series of ‘tech jewellery’ pieces and small accessories offer a luxurious alternative to everyday storage. No device is left uncovered, from woven gold mesh smart phone pouches to a perforated ‘FF’ minaudière, smart earphones and smart watch keychains. Leather straps, zipper lanyards and chain-link bracelets sport an assortment of alphabet charms, gilded lighters and a discreet shot glass set. A scribble pen earring functions on paper and tablets alike.   The FENDI Women’s Fall/Winter 2020-2021 runway show features a live soundtrack by SONOIO, an electronic music project by Italian musician Alessandro Cortini, touring keyboardist of the internationally acclaimed industrial rock group Nine Inch Nails. more on Fendi.com Sometimes it’s beneath the prettiest façades that the deepest truths lie.
