Memphis Depay teases debut EP with hot new single ‘2 Corinthians 5:7’

Music After releasing his debut single ‘No Love’ in 2018, and with singles like ‘5 Milli Freestyle’, ‘Fall Back’, ‘Dubai Freestyle’, and over 31 million plays on Spotify and YouTube alone, Memphis Depay proved that music is a serious passion and commitment for him. The 26-year-old Olympique Lyonnais football player’s new single ‘2 Corinthians 5:7’ keeps his impressive catalogue rolling and is the first taste of a debut EP which he is currently working on, to his fans’ delight.     It’s a dark hip hop tune with plucked tones and a sparsely placed distorted bass that fits his smooth voice perfectly. The menacing and deep trap beat adds catchy energy to the track’s sleek vocals. The lyrics tell of his glamorous lifestyle and of his career as a football player. It’s a unique angle for a rapper to also be able to talk about excelling at a world-class level in another field, making for some distinctive bars.     The video stays true to Memphis’ ideology, believing that for the world to change, we have to be the change, and this can only be achieved by lifting each other up. The video features some fine outfits, a gloomy dinner scene, and Depay’s tattoo-covered body. He slips into French for the outro, showing he can bring the heat in either language.    2 Corinthians 5:7 is out now: https://youtu.be/xjtNp-RStOs         Widely considered as one of the best football players in the world, Memphis Depay’s talent is much more extensive than that. Not only does the 26-year old serve the French club Olympique Lyonnais and The Netherlands’ national football team, he has also successfully been trying his hand at music.    Memphis Depay made his official debut for PSV Eindhoven in 2011 and for the Dutch national team in 2013. His football style is often compared to Cristiano Ronaldo’s, resulting in being praised as “one of the best young players in the world”.     His debut single ‘No Love’ was released in 2018, announcing a great musical career ahead. Followed by ‘Fall Back’ and with tracks like ‘5 Milli Freestyle’ and ‘Dubai Freestyle’, Memphis has amassed over 31 million plays on Spotify and YouTube alone.      In 2019, Memphis Depay also published his inspiring biography ‘Heart of a Lion’, written with Dutch sports reporter Simon Zwartkruis. The book tells his story from his childhood full of aggression and fear, with the ball as sole lifebuoy, to being the star of the Dutch national team and Lyon. In this vulnerable, yet powerful and inspiring biography, Memphis also reveals his musical ambitions.  After releasing his debut single ‘No Love’ in 2018, and with singles like ‘5 Milli Freestyle’, ‘Fall Back’, ‘Dubai Freestyle’, and over 31 million plays on Spotify and YouTube alone, Memphis Depay proved that music is a serious passion and commitment for him.

ARKET launches global brand campaign ‘New Nordic Everyday Design’

ARKET launches global brand campaign ‘New Nordic Everyday Design’

Fashion Entitled ‘New Nordic Everyday Design’, the campaign is a showcase of ARKET’s signature combination of simplicity, function and colourful playfulness through a series of looks drawn from its permanent collection as well as upcoming seasonal drops.     ‘New Nordic Everyday Design can be read as a simple manifesto for our philosophy and mission but also captures ideas and inspirations which we often return to in our creative work. It represents openness, innovation and a dedication to make even the ordinary things we use in daily life a little more beautiful’, says ARKET Head of Design, Anna Teurnell.     The concept of everyday beauty was one of the starting points for developing ARKET as well as a major influence on the Nordic modernist movement in the mid-20th century. Formulated in 1919 by Swedish art historian Gregor Paulsson, Vackrare vardagsvara (More beautiful everyday things) became the slogan for a new democratic approach that aimed to bridge the worlds of arts, crafts and functional form to produce affordable and widely accessible items for everyday use.     In the Nordic countries, this ambition was associated with a new ideal of beauty which favoured clean lines, a neutral colour palette and solid materials inspired by nature and the northern climate. Above all, it made functionality and durability the basis for good design.

Acqua di Parma unveils it's new campaign

Acqua di Parma unveils it's new campaign

Beauty A unique historic moment testing the human, social and economic standing of every generation, one that has also highlighted positive and touching counter-effects in many acts of shared unity and solidarity. The renewed recognition of small gestures of affection, closeness and support. Being moved by the power and beauty of nature, that, in these last months, has never been so resplendent in all its intensity and energy, making us aware of its vital importance and reminding us how essential it is to preserve and respect it. Acknowledging the importance of touch as a silent way of expressing  affection between loved-ones. These were the effects of a long period of isolation and social distancing. In this scenario Acqua di Parma spreads its message of hope and positivity: “Embrace the Future with a Gift of Nature” is the motto of the campaign devoted to its new fragrance, Colonia Futura.     Past, present and future are celebrated in a profound connection with nature, in the new media campaign for the emblematic fragrance of the Acqua di Parma Futura sustainability programme.     Colonia Futura is Acqua di Parma’s declaration of love for nature: a vibrant explosion of natural ingredients, wonderfully combined, but, at the same time, individually bursting out. It is transparent in its essence and vibrating with life.     The new Eau de Cologne is the emblem of the Acqua di Parma Futura sustainability plan, developed by the Maison within the scope of the LIFE program by the LVMH Group. For Acqua di Parma being sustainable means being committed to preserving the Art of Italian Living just as it has always done throughout its history. Since its early beginnings, the Maison has acted ethically with integrity and transparency, and now, with Acqua di Parma Futura, it expresses its desire to give a structure and systemic approach to its practices of sustainability. To protect and share, alive and intact, to future generations that Art of Living deeply rooted in the heritage of Italian art, nature and culture.     Colonia Futura captures the cultural and natural heritage of Colonia, characterised since 1916 by the Frutti d’Oro – its unmistakable Golden Fruits - and reinterprets it in an even more contemporary version. Sustainable to the core from its recyclable packaging to its 99%* natural origin ingredients, the new fragrance embodies Acqua di Parma’s passion for time-honoured traditional Italian craft and use of the best ingredients.

New Uniqlo U by Christophe Lemaire

New Uniqlo U by Christophe Lemaire

Fashion   Simplicity meets elegance and convenience: International clothing retailer UNIQLO today announces that it will launch the Uniqlo U fall / winter collection on September 17. The collection, designed by artistic director Christophe Lemaire and his UNIQLO R&D team in Paris, updates the well-known classics in a varied color palette. The use of neutral tones in combination with deep, muted colors evoke a feeling of warmth and comfort. The new collection consists of items for women, items for men and accessories.     New for women: details and comfort:   Lemaire's inspiration can clearly be found in minimalism this season. This manifests itself in simplistic and functional pieces designed to further expand a modern wardrobe. The classics have been updated with new details and more comfort; the color palette has also been broadened by adding more neutral, warm tones. Especially the gray-blue color that we see this season, provides a subtle contrast in the collection - it is also the perfect color to wear all year round. Satin and crinkled viscose provide a luxurious accent and provide a sophisticated addition to these simplistic silhouettes.   A long, padded jacket elegantly combines volume with softness and warmth. The vintage-inspired dresses feature refined details and a relaxed fit, while the knits sensually embrace the body shape. A boxy jacket is worked out in a wool blend, which provides the perfect mix of a cool, masculine look with feminine shapes.       New for men: refined warmth:   The energetic European street culture from previous decades can be seen as a spearhead in the inspiration for the men's line. We see classic sports elements combined with cool boxy fits and oversized silhouettes. The neutral tones provide a classic look and, in combination with black, white and dark blue, form the perfect wardrobe. This season's rich accents come mainly from orange tones and a deep burgundy. Textures such as corduroy, a wool blend fleece and wool jersey provide even more comfort.   A quilted corduroy shirt in a casual tapered silhouette makes it both sophisticated and warm. A key piece from the collection is the boxy half-length coat, featuring an oversized collar and storm closure at the front. This jacket stylishly offers resistance to rainy weather conditions. The application of soft fleece on a shirt jacket ensures that it can be worn both indoors and outdoors. Even the shorter coats will help you through the cold this season because they are made of wool blend fleece.     shop the collection: https://www.uniqlo.com/uniqlo-u/20fw/us/en/   Simplicity meets elegance and convenience: International clothing retailer UNIQLO today announces that it will launch the Uniqlo U fall / winter collection on September 17.

Especially the gray-blue color that we see this season, provides a subtle contrast in the collection - it is also the perfect color to wear all year round. Satin and crinkled viscose provide a luxurious accent and provide a sophisticated addition to these simplistic silhouettes.   A long, padded jacket elegantly combines volume with softness and warmth. The vintage-inspired dresses feature refined details and a relaxed fit, while the knits sensually embrace the body shape. A boxy jacket is worked out in a wool blend, which provides the perfect mix of a cool, masculine look with feminine shapes.       New for men: refined warmth:   The energetic European street culture from previous decades can be seen as a spearhead in the inspiration for the men's line. We see classic sports elements combined with cool boxy fits and oversized silhouettes. The neutral tones provide a classic look and, in combination with black, white and dark blue, form the perfect wardrobe. This season's rich accents come mainly from orange tones and a deep burgundy. Textures such as corduroy, a wool blend fleece and wool jersey provide even more comfort.   A quilted corduroy shirt in a casual tapered silhouette makes it both sophisticated and warm. A key piece from the collection is the boxy half-length coat, featuring an oversized collar and storm closure at the front. This jacket stylishly offers resistance to rainy weather conditions. The application of soft fleece on a shirt jacket ensures that it can be worn both indoors and outdoors. Even the shorter coats will help you through the cold this season because they are made of wool blend fleece.     shop the collection: https://www.uniqlo.com/uniqlo-u/20fw/us/en/

Filling Pieces open their first permanent store in Amsterdam

Fashion Located in the heart of Amsterdam’s 9 Streets, Filling Pieces’ first permanent retail store offers a carefully curated, tangible brand experience.     The vision of the brand’s Art Director, Daniele Misso, the store has been designed to function as a creative hub and pays homage to its predecessor: the beautiful and avant-garde bookstore, Mendo. The space is intended as an interactive environment to exchange ideas and experiences between people from different backgrounds and growing communities.     “We are showcasing more than just products, curating different art from our inner-circle friendship group of artists, using our retail space as a meeting place for our community.” - Guillaume Philibert, Founder & Creative Director, FP.   Filling Pieces has once again commissioned designer Johan Viladrich for custom fittings, having previously designed the Paris showroom installation for the brand’s AW20 collection. Beyond the latest collections and exclusive product offerings, artistic collaborations merge here with product display, to create a new experience in retail. Periodically, the store will feature the work of international artists of various disciplines, providing a platform to express their interpretations and vision of society outside of conventional institutions such as art galleries and museums. For the opening, a digital reproduction of Alexandros of Antioch’s sculpture Venus de Milo is displayed. Through photogrammetry (a process mainly used for 3D scanning), Swedish artist, Mikaela Steby Stenfalk uses the 62,000+ images found under the hashtag #venusdemiloto merge together, forming a new digital original. Mikaela reflects upon reproduction and archival processes in the age of the internet, as well as our growing relationship to digital landscapes and ties to public life. The brand plans to open a larger flagship store and brand experience closer to the end of 2020, with hopes to expand to other international key cities in the next years to come.     Visit the store at the Berenstraat 11,1016GG in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Officially opened from: 17th August.
