DIESEL Presents “Unforgettable Denim”

DIESEL Presents “Unforgettable Denim”

Fashion DIESEL announces the launch of its Fall 2020 campaign, which is rooted into one of denim’s key, longstanding elements: memory. Denim gets better with experience and becomes a sort of wearable record of the times you’ve had. The pen marks on the pocket? Doodles during a long flight to a faraway location. The scrape at the hem? From a night spent partying in Berlin. Denim collects these moments no matter what; not even 2020 can cancel a great pair of jeans.    In what has been a generation-defining year, DIESEL invites people—the world over—to celebrate the beautiful memories made in lieu of the plans that had to be put on hold, and wear these unexpected highlights with pride. For all the trips, events, parties, plans, ceremonies and more that could not take place in 2020, we are finding the opportunity to tell the surprise stories the connections that were made, the fun that was had, and the positive silver linings.    At the center of the Fall 2020 campaign is DIESEL’s new customizable denim collection. Through a special portal on www.diesel.com—and in select stores worldwide—clients will be able to personalize the leather tags on denim with something they could not participate this year. The intention is to commemorate what they did notdo, and the memory-making moments that ensued in the absence of those plans. A birthday party called off? Celebrate it by remembering it. A surf trip postponed? Create a keepsake for what might have been and use it as inspiration to plan for a later date – always with your favorite, unforgettable denim.   The platform is multi-subject: dozens of video clips, with real life anecdotes, directed by Pantera of the group Anonymous Content, will live online and on social media. Key visuals have been created by JP Bonino and will feature DIESEL watches and eyewear in addition to ready-to-wear.    The 2-month platform will follow the stories of various talents, influential figures including Evan Mock, the skateboarder and model. Normally a resident of New York City, he chose to enter isolation in Mallorca, Spain, reconnecting with nature. Julia Fox, an Italian-American actress, found unexpectedly restored love during lockdown. Donte Colley looked inward and became more active in fighting for what’s right. These individuals were photographed by RAYSCORRUPTEDMIND.   And it doesn't stop here: DIESEL is also partnering with different canceled events, like UNTOLD Festival, one of the most renowned music festivals in the world, to create a series of limited-edition denim trousers called the 2020 Fallen Edition. UNTOLD has won the award for Best Major Festival in Europe from its inception. In a “normal” year, it is visited by more than 350,000 fans from across the globe. Those fans will hold 2020’s edition in their imagination – and in a pair of customized Diesel jeans.

Digital cover story with actress KAT GRAHAM

Digital cover story with actress KAT GRAHAM

Fashion Kat Graham, whose breakout role was staring as Bonnie Bennett in the hit tv show ”The Vampire Diaries”, is a Swiss-born American actress, singer, dancer, producer and humanitarian. She started her career at the early age of five, released her own music working with music titans Babyface and Prince, been involved in fashion and is an advocate for human rights, focusing on the refugee crisis with the UNHCR. Since becoming a teen idol on the show, Graham has gone on to films like ”How It Ends” alongside Forest Whitaker, ”Cut Throat City” alongside Ethan Hawke and Wesley Snipes, and making history as the worlds first African-American April O'Neil in the ”Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” series.      Exclusive digital cover story was captured by photographer Filip Koludrovic in Italy.   We had a delight speaking with Kat:   Kat, fans mostly know you through your work on ”The Vampire Diaries”. How has this role changed your career?    The role really gave me a platform internationally. It felt like Boot Camp honestly. We were doing 22 episodes a year for eight years. It was the hardest I have ever had to work on anything at that age. Right before booking the show I was touring with Will.i.am and The Black Eyed Peas. I definitely didn't think that my break was necessarily going to come from acting even though I had been acting longer than anything at that point. From that show, I was able to reach so many fans internationally, that I might not have had otherwise. I'm truly grateful for that experience. I learned so much about my craft, and also about my space in that show and the world as the only African-American in the cast.      You've been working with Dior as one of the faces of their campaign for their new series ”What's Ladylike” of their signature Lady Dior Bag. The series explores the diverse definitions and manifestations of a lady. How would you sum up this partnership?   Dior has always been a brand to me that represents strong women. Maria constantly pushes the boundaries on what is lady like? What is feminine? Who are we in our true essence? From pairing boots with skirts, to embracing African culture from hair to fabrics, Dior is truly a house of diversity and acceptance. I'm lucky and fiercely loyal to those women and that brand, because of who they are and what they represent for all women.      You've worked on PSA short film ”At Risk Youth” for Black Lives Matter 2 years ago, which landed you an Emmy nomination. The Black Lives matter movement is now more relevant and important than ever. What's your view on all that's been going on regarding this in 2020?   The murder of so many African-Americans by police forces in America is not only heartbreaking but a symptom of a deeply rooted system of injustice and discrimination in our society.  First, as an African-American actress in Hollywood, it is incredibly unfortunate and wildly oppressive that many black actors and actresses, such as myself, still to this day experience tokenism, marginalization, and are written without three-dimensional development that is so freely given to their white co-stars. It's infuriating and unacceptable. I deeply understand how important the black narrative is on film and television, as well as in music, which is why I have made the decisions that I have made in the past few years that support those narratives and have consciously chosen to not engage in projects and or with people that don't fit within that agenda.  More importantly, I want to focus on the issue at hand - end police brutality – and work through the many layers of racism that plague our society. Black lives are on the line. Right now, I want to use my voice to raise awareness for Breonna, George, Ahmaud and the many men and women who desperately need their stories told. We cannot take our focus off of this until meaningful change comes. I also want to focus my efforts on promoting solutions, such as investing in new approaches to community safety and holding officials accountable.      You're a strong advocate for human rights. You're a supporter of the United Nations High Commissioner of Refugees. What does supporting the UNHCR mean to you?   My father is eight generations Liberian. During the Liberian Civil War, my grandfather was lined up on the beach to be shot by the Charles Taylor regime. My mother is Russo-Polish, whose family fled Europe and the Holocaust. I'm half African, and half Ashkenazi, with my family living in Israel.  People who've had to find refuge in other countries in order to live a better life are prevalent in my family's history. As a result, I've made it my life mission to help raise awareness about the plight of refugees across the world. Worldwide, almost 80 million people have been forced to flee their homes because of war, conflict, persecution and human rights violations. Of those, 26 million are refugees. This is why in 2013, I joined the UNHCR - The UN refugee agency - as a High-Profile Supporter.  In the last few years, I met with Syrian refugees at the Za'atari camp in Jordan. I travelled along the Guatemala-Mexico border where I met women, children and families forced to flee their own countries to escape extreme gang violence. I visited with Somali refugees at the Melkadida camp in southern Ethiopia and travelled to Nakivale in Uganda. In all the time I was there, I met incredibly resolute, resourceful, graceful and smart people. All they wanted was the chance to stand on their own feet and show the world they had the strength to survive and to thrive. I want to give these people a voice and a chance to fulfill their potential.      In August, your action heist thriller ”Cut Throat City”, starring also Terrence Howard, Eiza Gonzalez and Wesley Snipes, finally premiered. Tell us more about this film.   ”Cut Throat City” isa film directed by RZA. I played Demyra in the film, the wife of Blink who is a struggling artist that sets out to carry out a heist with his friends, after the government neglects the 9th ward community post Hurricane Katrina. I really loved working on this film and it is probably the coolest project that I've done up-to-date.      What's next for you in film and TV?   My next film is Netflix‘s ”Operation Christmas Drop” out in November. I play a congressional aid that gets sent to the Anderson Air Force Base to shut down their mission. Fun fact, this is actually a real mission that the base does every year and is the longest running humanitarian airlift in the world to this day. This is my fourth Netflix project in the three years that I've done since wrapping TVD. I really love being a part of that family. Netflix does an incredible job of fighting for inclusion and uplifting and elevating Black talent across the board.      What do you hope to see come from the work you are doing?   I hope that through my work, whether taking photos, being in film and TV and what I've been focusing on in 2020 (which has me producing and co-founding of the Modern Nirvana wellness group), I'm able to bring empowerment and healing to the world. I hope that I'm able to give a voice to the voiceless and do it in a really creative and enlightening way, that brings more compassion and understanding to the world.      TEAM CREDITS: PHOTO AND ART DIRECTION: FILIP KOLUDROVIC STYLING : MARCO DE LUCIA @ LUISAVIAROMA HAIR AND MAKE UP: ELISA RAMPI PRODUCTION: FEDERICA FRAGNOLI @LUISAVIAROMA ALL FASHION: @LUISAVIAROMA SPECIAL THANKS TO CRISTIANA CANOSA @ COMUNE DI ORTONA A MARE (CH) FOR THE LOCATIONS EDITOR: TIMOTEJ LETONJA Kat Graham, whose breakout role was staring as Bonnie Bennett in the hit tv show ”The Vampire Diaries”, is a Swiss-born American actress, singer, dancer, producer and humanitarian.

Cecconi's Amsterdam

Food Cecconi's Amsterdam serves classic northern Italian food with a modern twist.   Located on the ground floor of the Bungehuis, the 130-seat restaurant includes a lounge with retractable glazed ceiling for an Italian courtyard feel, a large horse shoe shaped bar and a formal dining area and private dining room overlooking the canals of Amsterdam.   Originating in London’s Mayfair, Cecconi’s was first opened in 1978 by Enzo Cecconi, the youngest-ever general manager of the famous Cipriani in Venice. Reopened and then taken over by Soho House in 2005, the restaurant has been kept true to its original form. Cecconi’s Amsterdam continues to reference its history.   Executive Chef Lorenzo Zanaga worked alongside Soho House’s Executive Chef Andrea Cavalerie, to create a menu that offers a variety of cicchetti (Italian tapas), seasonal vegetables and salads, along with house-made pastas and pizzas. Main dishes include a selection of meat, fish and vegetarian options, all prepared in a wood- burning oven or charcoal grill.   The restaurant offers some incredible dishes, and delicious cocktails. It's in my opinion and opinion of many people the best Italian restaurant in Amsterdam. I have experienced it after a delighful time at their spa Cowshed right next door. You can book it as a package, which i would suggest for a relaxing afternoon. - Timotej Letonja     Soho House’s in-house team, Soho House Design, led the restaurant’s design. Blending the old with the new, the space fuses classic Venetian elements such as pink exterior plaster works, which speak to the restaurant's Italian heritage, with vintage furniture and Art deco characteristics of the Bungehuis. The three distinct areas were created to offer something for everyone – from a dinner in the main dining room or lounge, to a negroni and pizzetta at the main bar.   Cecconi’s Amsterdam is open from Monday through Sunday. Mondays through Wednesdays between 3pm and 6pm there is Cecconi’s Aperitivo Hour, with a small menu consisting of bites and drinks.   For private events, options range from partial buy-outs, to dinners or cocktail receptions within the restaurant's private dining room.    Additional Cecconi’s outposts are located in West Hollywood and Miami, along with London, Berlin, Istanbul and most recently, Barcelona.     For more information about Cecconi's Amsterdam, please visit their website: www.cecconisamsterdam.com Cecconi's Amsterdam serves classic northern Italian food with a modern twist.   Located on the ground floor of the Bungehuis, the 130-seat restaurant includes a lounge with retractable glazed ceiling for an Italian courtyard feel, a large horse shoe shaped bar and a formal dining area and private dining room overlooking the canals of Amsterdam.   Originating in London’s Mayfair, Cecconi’s was first opened in 1978 by Enzo Cecconi, the youngest-ever general manager of the famous Cipriani in Venice.

2nd Matcha Mafia location opening in Amsterdam serving Holland’s first and only Matcha Bagel!

2nd Matcha Mafia location opening in Amsterdam serving Holland’s first and only Matcha Bagel!

Food Matcha Mafia’s first location opened in April 2019 on Saenredamstraat in the popular Amsterdam Pijp area. They are scheduled to open their second location in August 2020 in Amsterdam in the famous nine streets area.     The Matcha:   Their matcha - directly imported by Matcha Mafia - is from Uji, Japan and is the highest quality 1st harvest Ceremonial Grade Matcha. Matcha is green tea leaf powder full of antioxidants, amino acids (L-theanine) and natural caffeine. When drinking Matcha you're actually drinking the entire green tea leaf which means that you absorb all the nutrients the leaves provide. That is why when you drink matcha you get approximately 137 times more antioxidants and 10 times more nutrients than drinking normal green tea. Matcha also boosts your energy level with caffeine over 3-4 hours for a more mellow and sustained and steady energy boost without the jitters for people who are sensitive to caffeine.     The Drinks:   Matcha Mafia serves eight Signature Lattes, Refreshers and Seasonal Specials. The lattes are served both hot and cold (both in store and delivery). They also offer an extensive selection of vegan milk options like oat, coconut, almond and soy milk, and their very own vegan milk blend called “Mafia Milk”! The brightly colored drinks (Orange, Green, Pink, Purple, Blue) are completely 100% natural and use no artificial coloring. They are paired with health ingredients and adaptogens such as Ashwagandha, CBD, Maca Root, Collagen, Activated Charcoal and Blue Majik. While it is not featured on the menu, they do serve coffee and even have a drink called the ‘Dirty Matcha Latte’ which is a matcha latte + shot of espresso, for those in need of a big caffeine rush!     The Food:   Not only does Matcha Mafia serve you great drinks, they also have healthy food options and try to be Vegan and Gluten Free friendly. They serve a selection of Matcha Toasts, Matcha Bagels, and Mafia Bowls. Some signature dishes include their famous Matchacado Toast (rated #6 best selling vegetarian dish in the Netherlands), Breakfast Bagel on Holland’s first and only Matcha Bagel, and their Halloumi Breakfast Bowl. They also offer treats such as Matcha Banana Bread, Mochi Ice Cream, Chia Seed Pudding (vegan and gluten free), as well as their own Matcha Chocolate with Rice Puffs. All this and much more!     The Mafia:   The company is founded by couple Marije Achterbosch and Alexander Dengler who brought their love of matcha back with them to Holland after living in New York and experiencing the matcha latte culture there. Frustrated that there was nowhere in Amsterdam to get a good quality matcha latte, they decided to open the doors to their first location last year along with the help of their friend Ilona Swagemakers. While Marije is the woman creating all the wonderful recipes, together their dream is to educate and bring matcha to everyone in the Netherlands, Europe and the world!

Barbour by ALEXACHUNG Autumn Winter 20 Collection

Fashion This Autumn Winter 20, leading heritage and lifestyle brand Barbour continues its collaboration with British fashion brand, ALEXACHUNG, to create an archive inspired outerwear collection that sees classic styles reimagined through the ALEXACHUNG lens for modern city and country living.     Taking inspiration from the Barbour archives dating back to 1910, the eleven-piece collection which features 2 new baseball cap styles, is a celebration of British craftmanship and tradition that evokes a love of the great outdoors.     Alexa Chung said: “This is arguably my favourite collection to date as we approached the design process with more ambition, delving even deeper into the Barbour archive to explore new silhouettes and make them our own. This particular collection evokes an element of nostalgia fuelled by childhood memories of seeing my elders wearing similar shapes in Hampshire.     Silhouettes are more adventurous whilst the palette is paired down. Navy features quite heavily which might not come as much of a surprise to anyone who has been following my personal wardrobe, whilst earthy tones like the chestnut brown and brick red rust feel pleasingly synonymous with both brands. It's an autumnal English postcard of outerwear.     The goal with every approach is to create pieces that feel versatile enough to wear for everyday situations, both in the city and countryside, but on this occasion, she’s missing home...”     Paul Wilkinson, Global Commercial and Marketing Director, Barbour said ‘We are proud to announce another season with ALEXACHUNG. Alexa’s interest and passion in the Barbour archive has helped create another special collection which highlights Barbour’s timeless appeal reimagined by ALEXACHUNG – they’re classic country styles with a subtle fashion twist.”     Taking inspiration from the Barbour Bedale Wax, which was designed by Dame Margaret Barbour in 1980 as an equestrian jacket, the Barbour Violet Wax adds contemporary styling to a Barbour icon. Lined in a choice of Barbour’s Classic, Ancient or Red Navy Tartan, key features on the jacket include functional bellows pockets, a detachable hood and a corduroy collar. Studded back vents allow breathability, whilst a trademark ‘sugar lump’ chest pocket and a pull ring zip, add a sharp and branded look. Finished in a Sylkoil wax cotton, this is a garment that caters perfectly to both town and country living.     A timeless piece derived from Barbour’s famous fishing jacket, the Spey first introduced in the 1980s, the Barbour Floyd Wax is a cropped style that updates the aesthetic of a fishing jacket with a look suited for city life. A shearling wool collar provides warmth during colder months, together with a Classic Tartan and a black and white Northumbria Check lining which contrast against the jacket’s earthy colourways of ‘Fern’ and ‘Tan’.     Casual in design, the Barbour Cindy Sports Cap is a panelled baseball cap with a curved front and Barbour label branding on the bill. Lightweight, this accessory is available in three colourways: ‘Monks Robe’, ‘Sunset Orange’ and a ‘Northumberland Check’. Made with the winter season in mind, the Barbour Cindy Sports Wax Hat takes a Sylkoil wax finish. Country shades of ‘Fern’ and ‘Navy’ are partnered with a Classic Tartan and a Navy Red Tartan lining, completing a signature look.     The Barbour by ALEXACHUNG Autumn Winter 20 range will be available from September 20 at Barbour.com and selected stockists worldwide.     See barbour.com/alexachung for more details.
