SAMSØE SAMSØE & NORDISK collaborate on exclusive accessories

Accessories For their AW21 collection ‘Stillness’, Samsøe Samsøe has teamed up with the Danish outdoor brand Nordisk in a collaboration that reflects the feelings of the times we live in.     ‘We really felt that there was an urgency in working with the feelings we had when we were creating the collection. The feeling of traveling far away, escaping our everyday surroundings, but still keeping it cool and urban – even when entering the outdoorsy world – is what we wanted the collection to exude’, says Gitte Wetter, (Intermediate) Head of Design, at Samsøe Samsøe.     Importantly, the brands share the same values, in as much as their main focuses are creating long lasting products and working with high quality craftmanship. Throughout this collaboration, there was a determination to bring the outdoor universe into thecity lifestyle.     Nordisk is an outdoor heritage brand based in Silkeborg, Denmark, which is not only successful inthe central European scene, but who also includes Japan as their main market. Their strong aesthetics and innovative ways of reimagining the outdoor world is one of the reasons why there was a strong connection between the two companies, and was the initiative to produce this collection.     The collection consists of various products that are perfect for an escape to the outdoors, whilstkeeping an urban edge in terms of color range and multi functionality. For example, the blanket youmight bring with you on a camping / glamping trip could also be used as an everyday throw in your home, on the couch or bed whereas the coffee thermos works well in a practical sense and can also be your everyday commuter friend in the city, on your way to work in the morning.     Besides being a prominent player on the outdoor scene, Nordisk also has a strong in uence in the glamping universe. With dedicated spots called ‘Glamping Villages’ spread across the world - everywhere from Denmark and Italy, to Argentina and Japan – the brand ensures their exposure in the best possible way.     The collection campaign merges the two aesthetics perfectly.

In conversation with Maggie Hureau

In conversation with Maggie Hureau

Men We had a pleasure speaking with Maggie Hureau  the head of Social Impact at Harry’s Inc.        Can you tell a bit more about the brand you work for?    Harry’s journey began seven years ago in NYC, USA, when Jeff & Andy (co-founders of Harry’s Inc.) set out to try and fix the shaving category by offering high-quality razors for a fair price. The plan worked. So much so, in 2017 we crossed the pond and brought Harry’s to the UK and now to Europe with the intention to make shaving and grooming better and more accessible for all guys.   Harry’s was set out to be different. So rather than overdesign or overcharge, we prioritize quality craftsmanship, simple design, and fair value for guys who know they shouldn’t have to overpay for a great shave.   As a men’s care brand that cares deeply about men and their lives, we’ve also spent years promoting better mental health care for men and shattering narrow stereotypes about masculinity.     You are working as the lead for social impact at Harry’s. Can you tell us more about your job and what you do on a daily basis?    I may be biased, but I think that I have the best job at Harry’s in that I get to think all day, every day, how we can do better in the world and make an impact in our communities as our business continues to grow. On any given day, I’m lucky enough to work with our nonprofit partners on how to bring their programming to life, working with our brand teams to ensure our customers not only know about our social mission but can find resources themselves or helping our team get out and volunteer and give back (all employees get paid time off to volunteer with organizations of their choice).      Why do you think this goal is important, especially among men?    Mental health is an issue that disproportionately impacts men with millions suffering from mental health issues each year and higher rates of suicide, in part due to the outdated expectations around what it means to be a “man” and therefore unable to ask for help.    Since Harry’s launched in 2013, we’ve given 1% of sales back to causes we care about. A few years ago, we honed in on mental health as a cause area, and we work closely with a number of amazing organizations across the world to drive impact in local communities. By focusing on an issue that directly impacts the customers we serve, our social mission makes sense for our business, and has a real impact in the world.   As a personal care brand that serves over 10 million men worldwide, we’re uniquely positioned to have a big impact on how people talk about their mental health and how easily they can access care.    To date, we’ve reached over 850,000 men making sure they would have access to the mental health  care they need. Globally, we have donated over $6M and partnered with 14 charities worldwide.     As a brand that focuses on mental health, what is your biggest outtake from the current period of time we are living in?   When we first decided on this cause area a few years ago, mental health wasn’t a topic everyone was discussing and in many ways there was a stigma around the cause area itself. Now, we’ve all experienced collective trauma together during the pandemic and we find that people are truly embracing mental health as a cause.    The pandemic brought mental health to the forefront worldwide as people from every background grappled with grief, worry, and solitude. Sleep problems and loneliness increased, as did depression and anxiety.    But there is an exciting upside to our collective year of emotional upheaval: People are talking about mental health more than ever before, and experts are encouraged by how much the pandemic has simply helped normalize talking about mental health and seeking help. In fact, we asked our US customers and found that 78% of all consumers agree that mental health is currently in a state of crisis in our country. Over 50% of consumers have struggled with their mental health this year or feel the pandemic has had a negative impact on their mental health. However, only 29% have reached out to mental health professionals during this time. Which tells us that not only awareness is needed but real connection and access to resources.      What does self-care mean to Harry’s?    We look at self care a bit differently at Harry’s! Of course, it means taking time for yourself (which may involve our products,) but we also think true self care is about setting boundaries, saying no when needed and, most importantly, having access to mental health care. While we love our products and think they can help with your self care routine, we also realize there is no substitution for talking to professional mental health providers or asking for help when you need it.      What are your plans for taking over The Netherlands?    Our goal is to make the shaving and grooming experience better and more accessible for Dutch guys. This means being readily available however and wherever Dutch guys want to shop (strolling by the streets and popping to Etos stores or online via harrys.com)—and continue to give to organisations that promote better mental health care for men.     https://www.harrys.com/nl/nl   https://www.etos.nl/merken/harrys-grooming/ We had a pleasure speaking with Maggie Hureau  the head of Social Impact at Harry’s Inc.        Can you tell a bit more about the brand you work for?    Harry’s journey began seven years ago in NYC, USA, when Jeff & Andy (co-founders of Harry’s Inc.) set out to try and fix the shaving category by offering high-quality razors for a fair price.

IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar Ibiza

Food In 2017 IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar opened its third restaurant in the centre of Ibiza. Overlooking the Old Town and the Ibiza marina, IZAKAYA presents modern Japanese cuisine with South American influences in an outstanding shared-dining concept that suits the cosmopolitan nature of Ibiza.     Time-honoured techniques blend with innovative signatures, with spectacular dishes as the result. A sophisticated menu is composed of a variety of small, unconventional dishes made for sharing and in line with Asian ‘grazing menus. As in Amsterdam, the traditional Robata grill is at the heart of the restaurant in Ibiza, where guests will be able to watch the chef work inimitably do their work. Besides the specialities of the Robata grill, IZAKAYA has a sophisticated menu of Sakana, a variety of small dishes, and dishes created with the Hibachi fire bowl, a Japanese small hot plate. The chefs find inspiration in distinctive elements of the Asian culture.     Along with redefining Asian culinary classics, IZAKAYA gives a cutting-edge twist to the bar with an array of house-infused tonics with the Japanese Shōchū as the base. Ingredients such as lychee, juzu, jasmine tea and sake are added. The Shōchū is distilled from barley, buckwheat and sweet potato. It’s the ultimate base for the wellbeing tonics, but also for a wider selection of exclusive and surprising beverages on the Asian influenced menu. The iconic 360 degrees’ island bar executed in black steel is embraced by this overwhelming wine library set in state of the art fridges of crystal glass and polished steel.     " IZAKAYA is located in one of the coolest boutique hotels in Ibiza and it's right next to a pool with mesmerizing scenery and beautiful views. The restaurant exeeds expectations with spectacular dishes and great wine-pairing or exclusive signature ccktails. Are you planning to visit Ibiza during the Summer? In that case IZAKAYA should be a must visit place on your list." - Timotej Letonja     IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar | Passeig Joan Carles I, 1 | 07800 Ibiza Spain izakaya-restaurant.com | info@izakaya-ibiza.com | +34 871 182 526 @izakaya_official In 2017 IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar opened its third restaurant in the centre of Ibiza. Overlooking the Old Town and the Ibiza marina, IZAKAYA presents modern Japanese cuisine with South American influences in an outstanding shared-dining concept that suits the cosmopolitan nature of Ibiza.     Time-honoured techniques blend with innovative signatures, with spectacular dishes as the result. A sophisticated menu is composed of a variety of small, unconventional dishes made for sharing and in line with Asian ‘grazing menus.

Lois Jeans opens a new store Galería Dos in Milan

Fashion This summer, Lois Jeans is once again pushing its boundaries and opening its second home in Milan; Galeria Dos. The picturesque Italian property has been transformed into a unique 'Casa Lois'; the store concept where the modern Mediterranean aesthetic can be felt in all expressions. At the end of June, just after the official opening, the new collection No.13 will also be available there. A Spanish 'finca' in the Milanese district of Brera Nestled among the antique shops and boutiques in the narrow streets of Milan's Brera district, lies Galería Dos. An idyllic escape from home, inspired by Spanish roots and intertwined with the Italian character hidden among the stones. Galería Dos is the realization of a dream, where Lois' deep-seated soul is tangible in every corner and in every detail. A contemporary atmosphere, yet full of rich history. By settling down in the Brera district, the brand gets where it belongs; a much-loved part of the city previously inhabited by artists and bohemians. “Home is not a place, it's a feeling” The classic white arches, high ceilings and idyllic stone pillars; 'Galeria Dos' is a true escape from the everyday. In the serene space, surrounded by the organic stones, authentic details form and you experience a sense of true tranquility while shopping. A harmonious place where time seems to stand still for a moment. The love for the country and the city is reflected in the natural materials and pays tribute to the Italian heritage. Stones from old Italian villas have been reused and given a new lease of life in the in-house designed interior. Besides the Italian influences and curated objects, Lois introduces her own designed piece of furniture; an organically shaped sofa, inspired by the natural contours of the Spanish country and specially made for this gallery. In combination with the warm thatched ceiling and light stucco, the store feels like a Spanish country house where you are not a customer but a guest.

HAVANA CLUB AND PIGALLE PARIS LAUNCH EXCLUSIVE CAPSULE COLLECTION

HAVANA CLUB AND PIGALLE PARIS LAUNCH EXCLUSIVE CAPSULE COLLECTION

Lifestyle Cuban rum brand Havana Club has joined forces with French label Pigalle Paris, best known for its colorful streetwear collections and iconic, brightly colored basketball courts. Together they release a limited-edition capsule collection. This consists of a unisex clothing collection and a bottle of Havana Club 7 with special label designed by Stéphane Ashpool, founder and creative director of Pigalle Paris.       When Stéphane Ashpool first visited Cuba, he says he immediately fell in love with the Island. This gave him the idea to create a collection in collaboration with a local brand as a tribute to the beauty of the island. Stéphane ended up at Havana Club, a much-loved Cuban brand that also fits perfectly with Pigalle's vision. Both brands share core values ​​such as community involvement, diversity and inclusivity.     Inspiration: the colors of Cuba.     Ashpool took inspiration for the collection from the streets of Havana, which fascinated him from the very first moment with the colours, the vibrant energy and the music. The warm pastel colors of the sun-stained houses can be seen throughout the island in architecture and design. Every color he used for this collection reflects a piece of Cuba's unique history: from the eclectic architecture and the vintage cars to the colorful skies at sunset.     Limited edition capsule collection:     Ashpool incorporated these iconic Havana colors into the bottle's label, which he also designed himself. This label with handwritten message formed the basis for the capsule collection, consisting of a leather jacket, a box logo T-shirt, a tracksuit and a cap. Stéphane also incorporated the same faded tones in the tie-dye print on the T-Shirts and tracksuits. The tracksuit, like the leather jacket, has a '7' on the back. This is a direct reference to both the '7' on the Havana Club 7 bottle and to the sportstyle culture that the designer has been inspired by for many years. With this unique limited edition, Ashpool manages to bring the streets of Havana and Paris together in its own way.     Both the creatively designed Havana Club 7 bottle and the capsule collection are available in limited edition. The bottle of Havana Club 7 costs €39.95 and is exclusively available via www.drankboutique.nl. The unisex collection is exclusively for sale at Four Amsterdam from last week. Prices range from €50 for the T-Shirt to €90 for the hoodie. The leather jacket, which will be available worldwide in a limited edition, costs €1,000.     Cuban rum brand Havana Club has joined forces with French label Pigalle Paris, best known for its colorful streetwear collections and iconic, brightly colored basketball courts.

GIVENCHY PARFUMS LAUNCHES THE CREATION OF AN NFT IN SUPPORT OF THE LGBTQIA+ CAUSE

Fragrances To mark Pride Month this year, Givenchy Parfums states its support for the LGBTQIA+ cause by launching an unprecedented project: the brand has decided to team up with London gallery owner & LGBTQIA+ activist Amar Singh and artists Rewind Collective to create a digital artwork which will be sold for the benefit of the Le MAG Jeunes organisation (https://www.mag-jeunes.org/). An initiative which perfectly reflects the House’s approach, according to which disruptive creativity and innovation always go hand in hand with values of respect and inclusion.     After having ventured into the field of gaming by creating makeup looks for the video game Animal Crossing, Givenchy Parfums is now exploring the new world of NFTs (“Non Fungible Tokens”, digital works encoded in a way that ensures their uniqueness and authenticity). The House thus becomes the first beauty brand to come up with an NFT and to put this innovation at the service of an essential cause.     Drawing inspiration from the House’s hallmarks, as well as the colours of Pride Month, this original virtual artwork is being unveiled today on the @givenchybeauty Instagram page. It will then be sold exclusively in a limited series of 1,952 on VeVe, the largest mobile-first digital collectibles platform. After the sale that will take place from June 21 to June 26, the proceeds will be entirely donated to the Le MAG Jeunes organisation.     This initiative is fully in line with Givenchy Parfums’ approach, which aims to promote a culture open to all types of diversity. The singularity and expertise of its employees are a precious source of creativity and innovation. Givenchy Parfums ensures that all are included so that they are totally free to be themselves and can fully express their potential. Each talent is unique and the strength of the House relies on merging these differences.
