Tommy Hilfiger reveals the Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collaboration

Fashion Tommy Hilfiger is pleased to reveal the Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collaborative collection co-designed by iconic American designer Tommy Hilfiger and six-time Formula OneTM World Champion and global brand ambassador for TOMMY HILFIGER men’s, Lewis Hamilton.The fourth collaborative collection between the American designer and British racing driver makes positive strides forward in sustainable practices and embraces the notion of “Style For All” - a belief that great style erases all boundaries in gender, age, ethnicity and body type. The Spring 2020 TommyXLewiscollection will be available on a gender-neutral tommy.com page and in select TOMMY HILFIGER stores and wholesale locations globally starting February 16, 2020. Fans of the brand can visit tommy.com from January 21, 2020 for a sneak peek of select styles that can be added to wish lists before the collection becomes available globally. In the lead-up to the collection’s launch, two unique pieces will be released online, providing a taste of the greater Spring 2020 collection’s aesthetic. The utilitarian TommyXLewis backpack will drop on January 28, 2020 and the TommyXLewis flag crew neck sweater will drop on February 5, 2020.  The Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collection fuses two worlds: 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 Spring 2020 TommyXLewis 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 Spring 2020TommyXLewis collaborative collection is more conscious than ever, with over 75% of the apparel featuring sustainable elements, including 100% organic cotton. Sorona®, which is made from a plant-based fiber, was used as a sustainable alternative to down. The collection also utilizes lower impact washes and recycled textiles on styles including denim pants and shorts, woven tops and the bleached trucker jacket. The collection will premiere at the TOMMYNOW runway experience at Tate Modern, The Tanks on February 16, 2020 in London, United Kingdom at 8 p.m. GMT.   Tommy Hilfiger is pleased to reveal the Spring 2020 TommyXLewis collaborative collection co-designed by iconic American designer Tommy Hilfiger and six-time Formula OneTM World Champion and global brand ambassador for TOMMY HILFIGER men’s, Lewis Hamilton.The fourth collaborative collection between the American designer and British racing driver makes positive strides forward in sustainable practices and embraces the notion of “Style For All” - a belief that great style erases all boundaries in gender, age, ethnicity and body type. The Spring 2020 TommyXLewiscollection will be available on a gender-neutral tommy.com page and in select TOMMY HILFIGER stores and wholesale locations globally starting February 16, 2020.

Matcha Mafia

Matcha Mafia

Food Recently Matcha Mafia opened the doors of their first location in the Saenredamstraat in the popular Amsterdam Pijp area. The company is founded by three matcha enthusiasts that love to see the connections that matcha can provide. With Matcha Mafia they aim to be the premier matcha brand bringing matcha to Europe.    The Matcha The matcha - directly imported by Matcha Mafia - is from Uji in Japan and is the highest quality Ceremonial Grade Matcha. Matcha is green tea leaf powder full of antioxidants, amino acids (L-theanine). When drinking Matcha, you're actually drinking the entire leaf, which means that you absorb all the nutrients the leaves provide. This is why matcha contains 137 times more antioxidants then normal green tea. Also matcha boosts your energy level due to the slow supply of caffeine. In contrast to coffee, drinking matcha doesn't have any highs or lows, but a steady energy boost.   The Lattes Matcha Mafia serves, besides two seasonal specials, eight different types of lattes. These lattes can be both served hot and cold. They also offer an extensive selection of vegan milk options like oat, coconut, almond, unsweetended almond and soy milk. No artificial coloring is used and all their ingredients are a 100% natural. Not only does Matcha Mafia serve you great lattes, they also have healthy food options, such as date balls and chia seed pudding jars (both vegan and gluten free). The Mafia Marije Achterbosch (Head of Product and matcha aficionado!) discovered her love for matcha when she was modeling in New York. When she moved back to the Netherlands she missed her lattes so much that she made it her dream to bring matcha to the Netherlands. Alexander Dengler (man behind the operations) saw a business model in this idea. He decided after a career at Uber and Google that he wanted to focus more on creative entrepreneurship. Alexander is also responsible for the brand design and decor. The Matcha Mafia crew is complete with Ilona Swagemakers (Head of Retail Operations and Chief Ginger Officer) who recently moved back to Amsterdam from Singapore where she managed LAVO. She takes on the day to day business at the first Matcha Mafia location.   Recently they added two new drinks to the menu that taste absolutely and are as all other products on the menu fully organic, those are the Matcha lemonade & The Choco nuts with cacao, peanut, hazelnut and ashwagandha. Also coming to the menu soon are two brand new toasts: bruschetta with their own homemade matcha hummus and smoked salmon with matcha cream cheese. They also host Matcha workshops once a month, where people learn everything about Matcha but also about all their drinks. All the lattes have their own super foods and health benefits and they love to share this to the world.  @matcha_mafia www.matchamafia.com Saenredamstraat 26 1072 CH AMSTERDAM    You can order Matcha Mafia through UberEats, Deliveroo and soon also via Thuisbezorgd.nl Recently Matcha Mafia opened the doors of their first location in the Saenredamstraat in the popular Amsterdam Pijp area.

Napapirji reveals Infinity. The first circular, 100% recyclable jacket

Napapirji reveals Infinity. The first circular, 100% recyclable jacket

Fashion Blazing a trail in circular innovation, premium casualwear brand Napapijri today unveils Infinity, its firstcircular, 100% recyclable jacket embodying Napapijri’s mission to design a circular future for fashion. The first jacket of its kind, Infinity has been three years in the making. Its main breakthrough comes from an intensive, synergistic effort to innovate the way in which fashion impacts the environment through the employment of recyclable materials and circular economy models. Infinity’s main material innovation is its mono-material composition: its filling and trims are made fromNylon 6, while its fabric is made from ECONYL® Regenerated Nylon, a high-performance nylon 6 yarn recycled from discarded fishing nets and other waste materials. The use of one material allows for an easier recycling process - the jacket can enter the recycling machine as it is - and fibres are upcycled without losing any of their original characteristic or quality, which means that ECONYL®: Regenerated Nylon can be recycled again and again. By building Infinity using Nylon 6, Napapijri has created a virtuous circle where the jacket can be recycled and reimagined infinitely. The project marks a decisive step in Napapijri’s quest for innovative solutions in circular design. AsNapapijri’s Senior Marketing Director, Vicki Bohlbro, explains: “As a brand whose origins are firmlyplaced in the beautiful alpine landscape, the safeguard of nature has always been on top of our agenda. Now more than ever, we are aware of the pressing issues we are collectively asked to address. We have chosen to do so by pioneering the future of fashion with Infinity, a jacket that embodies our efforts to combine design, sustainability, and innovation to inspire a shift in the role ourindustry has to play in the preservation of the planet and its people through circularity”. To close the loop and make the innovation truly circular, Napapijri has developed a unique digital take-back programme through which the jacket can be returned and recycled. When purchasing Infinity, customers will be invited to register their jacket online through a unique identifier. In order to encourage mindful consumption, customers will have the option of returning their jacket only after two years from purchase. Infinity will then be processed into new yarn and new products. Upon returning the jacket, customers will receive a 100 Euro voucher to be used at napapijri.com for the purchase of their next Infinity product. “Napapijri is the first brand to take a jacket back to be recycled into new ECONYL® material thanks toour unique Regeneration System,” says Giulio Bonazzi, CEO of Aquafil (the makers ofECONYL®). “So, when the jacket reaches the end if its life, it is only the beginning. This is a real first.” Blazing a trail in circular innovation, premium casualwear brand Napapijri today unveils Infinity, its firstcircular, 100% recyclable jacket embodying Napapijri’s mission to design a circular future for fashion. The first jacket of its kind, Infinity has been three years in the making.

Seletti opens its first flagship store in Amsterdam

Seletti opens its first flagship store in Amsterdam

Design After opening in Italy, Korea, Thailand and the UK, SELETTI, with its disruptive and ironic spirit, has opened its first flagship store in The Netherlands. On November 8th, the Italian design brand inaugurated the space in one of the most creative and cutting-edge cities in Europe: Amsterdam. Located in the heart of the 9 Streets district, the store – like its other global siblings – was designed by BBMDS architecture studio. The new Amsterdam store will be complemented by Seletti’s e-commerce for The Netherlands atwww.seletti.it, is now launched. During the opening of the new space, Studio Job joined Stefano Seletti in a special signing session of all BLOW by Job&Seletti products: a unique way for design aficionados and Studio Job fans to get their own “customised” piece. The Seletti Amsterdam store was conceived to meet the need for flexibility that characterizes the Seletti world, providing the opportunity to reconfigure, almost in real time, the display. A dynamic store, a four-dimensional space where the products are displayed in a tangle of lines and designs with graphic impact, playing on the contrast between "industrial" materials and precious finishes. Scaffolding creates a simple and yet interesting structure to show customers different product lines, while custom-made graphics enrich the look of the whole environment. Seletti’s eye-catching, fun and often outrageous homeware is made up of a number of design collaborations with some of the best-known names across lifestyle and fashion. The space will house some of the brand’s most iconic pieces from its collaborative collections: BLOW by Job&Seletti with its tableware and furniture designed by Studio Job and enriched by its graphics and its vision; DIESEL LIVING with Seletti, the collection designed by Diesel’s creative team which mixes fashion and design in a unique way; Seletti wears TOILETPAPER, the collaboration with the image-only magazine created by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari; and the collections created by Marcantonio with its poetic objects inspired by nature, functional and dreamy at the same time. The Seletti shop also offers customers the possibility to create their own bespoke lighting. Customers visiting the ‘Letter Wall’ will be able to design their lighting via Seletti’s smart screen by firstly composing their message and then choosing a lighting design. Seletti CEO, Stefano Seletti comments, “Amsterdam is a city where Seletti fits in perfectly! Our design is crazy, out of the ordinary and fun, mirroring the spirit of this city. We have been commercially active in The Netherlands for years now, and the time has come for us to have a unique space where our customer can enter our world and be totally embraced by it”. Finally, with the aim of expanding the brand’s distribution through new channels, Seletti will launch its e-commerce platform for The Netherlands in the coming weeks. Located on www.seletti.it, it gives access to all of the brand’s collections, allowing customers to receive their purchase directly at home or to collect them from the Amsterdam store. “Using the web is a way, for us, to be closer to our customers”, adds Stefano Seletti. “We take pride in being accessible, but accessibility is not only being affordable: it is also being able to reach our target audience everywhere! We have been developing this ‘virtual flagship store’ in many countries now and it is a success. We are sure our Dutch customers will be very happy!”.

Filling Pieces debut their first full collection

Filling Pieces debut their first full collection

Fashion Week Marking the departure from their reputation as a footwear brand, Filling Pieces return to Paris with a virtual runway showcasing their first full collection. The 27-look presentation consists of eyewear, bags, accessories, small leather goods, apparel and of course, footwear. Founder and creative director Guillaume Philibert commented that he is “beyond excited and extremely proud of the collection to be shown in Paris this week”, labelling it “The best to-date”. Without needing to access a show, consumers as well as buyers can visit the FP showroom and view the AW20 SPIRIT collection modelled by the likes of Nick Goulden, in the form of a pre-recorded runway beamed onto the walls. The concept of SPIRIT as a theme stems from the belief in a fifth element bonding earth, fire, water and air. Spirit also represents the desire to understand the unspoken bonds that unite humanity. Each element is interpreted with a unique design direction throughout the collection. Continuing the theme, Filling Pieces have commissioned Makers Unite to produce several pieces for the RTW AW20 collection. The Amsterdam-based organisation nurtures the creative talent of refugees, helping them to integrate into society. A topic which resonates deeply with FP’s brand heritage. Marking the departure from their reputation as a footwear brand, Filling Pieces return to Paris with a virtual runway showcasing their first full collection. The 27-look presentation consists of eyewear, bags, accessories, small leather goods, apparel and of course, footwear. Founder and creative director Guillaume Philibert commented that he is “beyond excited and extremely proud of the collection to be shown in Paris this week”, labelling it “The best to-date”. Without needing to access a show, consumers as well as buyers can visit the FP showroom and view the AW20 SPIRIT collection modelled by the likes of Nick Goulden, in the form of a pre-recorded runway beamed onto the walls. The concept of SPIRIT as a theme stems from the belief in a fifth element bonding earth, fire, water and air. Spirit also represents the desire to understand the unspoken bonds that unite humanity.

Park Centraal Amsterdam opens in the cultural heart of the city

Travel   Modern makeover marks new chapter for Amsterdam hotel and the inception of a new hospitality brand deeply rooted in Dutch culture: Park Centraal. Refined design with a touch of 1970s glamour, inspired by a revolutionary, rule- breaking decade in The Netherlands – a defining aspect of the hotel’s DNA, Ground floor designed by Amsterdam-based studio FG Stijl including Bar Claes, a new destination for eating and drinking, with an emphasis on reinvented classics; 189 guestrooms, eight meeting rooms and artwork from contemporary Dutch artist Kat Klerks. Boasting a significant historic legacy and housed in one of the most recognisable flatiron-style buildings in Amsterdam, Park Centraal Amsterdam, formerly known as Park Hotel Amsterdam, has been given a renewed lease of life through a significant rebrand that embodies its heritage and its enviable location, in the city’s cultural epicentre. Connecting Dutch influences and contemporary design Within a short stroll, guests will find the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam’s Vondelpark, the vibrant Leidseplein, De Pijp and music temple Paradiso, a church converted in the Seventies and where world-famous musicians are known to perform. Each of the 189 rooms combine comfort with Dutch influences and contemporary design beautifully. Deep colours, rich textures and artworks by local artist Kat Klerks combine to create sophisticated and cosy spaces in the heart of Amsterdam, with many more finess touches in each of the rooms. Park Centraal Amsterdam’s ground-floor interiors designed by the locally-based studio FG Stijl feature a blend of classic and contemporary touches. On arrival, a striking three-dimensional ceiling sculpture guides guests to a chic 1970s-inspired reception desk where special lighting, patterned oak floors and arched mirrors combine to create a sense of drama. The hotel’s art collection includes 16 porcelain heart-shaped pieces by FOS Studio Collection, a nod to its position at the very core of all the action and culture in Amsterdam. “Park Centraal is a true celebration of its surroundings; a place where history, contemporary design and invigorating spaces inspired by the Dutch way of living and nearby landmarks intertwine. The building has functioned as a hotel for over a century and we are incredibly proud to have played a role in its transition into a destination that’s current and exciting”, says Bram van der Hoek, CEO & Partner, Europe Hotels Private Collection. Bar Claes, a new destination for eating and drinking Occupying the hotel’s former lobby space, new hangout for eating and drinking, ‘Bar Claes’ has been designed with a sensitivity towards the hotel’s guests and in harmony with the local lifestyle, where balance prevails. The vibrant space features multiple corners to work or leisure. From a centrepiece marble bar to a tucked-away fireplace with sitting room-style furniture and a space to play pool, allowing groups, couples and solo travellers to each choose their desired environment. Park Centraal’s playful and rule-breaking character extends to the Bar Claes’ drinks menu, where all-time favourites (Dry Martini) are offered alongside twists on classics (Verjus Mojito). The theme continues throughout the food menu, with dishes ranging from ‘Holtkamp Cheese Croquettes’ to reimagined favourites, such as ‘Claes Deviled Eggs’ with trout roe and smoked fish salad and ‘China Town style prawn toast’ with ginger, chili and brioche. Room rates from EUR 149,- per night.   About Park Centraal Amsterdam Located steps away from Amsterdam’s quintessential Vondelpark and Museum Square, the building that houses Park Centraal Amsterdam, formerly known as Park Hotel Amsterdam, has hosted guests since the late 19th century. Contemporary with a historical edge, locals and visitors can enjoy the hotel’s 189 inviting guestrooms, each of which feature selected artworks by Dutch designer Kar Klerks, Zenology products, a Marshall and Park Centraal Bedding Collection; eight meeting & event spaces; Bar Claes; and the nearby critically acclaimed Asian-fusion restaurant, MOMO with a fresh menu. The reopening of Park Centraal Amsterdam marks a significant overhaul for the historic 189-room building, which has functioned as a hotel since 1880. For more information and bookings proceed on www.parkcentraal.com Hotel has many great anemities and offer a vairiety of things to do both in the hotel and in the near area as it is truly based on the heart of the city, with museums only 5 minutes away by walking, to hot new restaurants as well as all the best shops just around the corner.  About Park Centraal As the name suggests, Park Centraal focuses on central locations, imbued with contemporary design, heritage and locally-inspired spaces to eat and drink that breathe Dutch culture throughout. With an ethos inspired by the quality of life in The Netherlands, Park Centraal aims to reflect the country’s balanced and social lifestyle, where a healthy working atmosphere is carefully combined with pleasure, manifested through vibrant bars, music and quality food. Following its inaugural opening in Amsterdam, Park Centraal will expand to The Hague in Spring 2020. Which is very exciting.

Sorry I'm late!

Music Sorry I'm late! Allow me to introduce myself ; my name is Asma Emy El Ghalbzouri and i am the Music and Culture editor for Numéro magazine Netherlands. As we strive to make up for lost time when it comes to music we would love to give you a recap and a small taste of all thats coming in 2020.   Let's start at the beginning and honor some of the most amazing festivals this summer. Mojo has been a big player in Holland for some time now and Lowlands has been their pride and joy. Although the festivals features quite a bit of hip hop acts,it didn’t stop them from wanting to dabble in a full hip hop festival and with great success if you ask us. WOO HAH is a splendid gathering in the south of Holland with a wide selection of hip hop’s latest and finest.   Mysteryland never ceases to disappoint either. A wide variety of house,edm and techno djs, all of them being household names in their genre, grace the immaculate and beautifully decorated stages for energetic sets. I have always had a soft spot hardstyle and hardcore. it is the most fascinating part of Dutch culture and grew to be a worldwide phenomenon. Defqon being one of the coolest and most celebrated of them all really blew me away this summer.   We also visited some festivals abroad in a region that is finally celebrated and honored for its amazing musical talent ; North Africa. We have choosen to explore Morocco and the country has stolen our musical hearts. We spoke to different established and emerging artists and we were mesmerized. Loco Dice, Chromeo and Yesin Bey played Oasis festival and I was so delighted to find out that Dave’s mother is from Moroccan jewish decent. I remember walking the streets of New York back when I used to be a hairstylist and got to assist backstage at the seasonal hectic fashion frenzy also known as fashion week. Chromeo blasting in my ears with help of revolutionary item called the ipod. Dj Kicks (remix) is one of the coolest albums out there and i will fight you for it.   Moroccan dj’s Yasmean, Dris Bennis aka Casa Voyager and African kings Art Comes First played immaculate sets and took us through a magical journey that embodies progressive Africa at Oasis festival.As the night progressed Walshy Fire,Art Comes First and Chromeo decided to share a stage and played a back to back which I will forever cherish as one of the most enchanting musical moments in my life.   Atlas Electronic gave us hedonistic and gypsy vibes. Dj Gan Gah showed up and out as he plays a set featuring well known edited chaabi and reggada songs. I must say he is one of my favorite discoveries yet! Born in Morocco and now residing in Brussels,this Moroccan powerhouse mixes Moroccan folk music in techno and house edits making it possible to enjoy at any music festival. I would suggest you check out his Habib Tronics on Spotify,its the new wave chaabi music he created just for our enjoyment. Zohra Idrissi aka Gypzee seranedes us under a star filled sky with the sweetest funky songs. She reminds me of a young Erica Badu. Sassy and lyricly on point. This Moroccan beauty, who lives in London, has slowly but surely making her way in music and this time blessing us with this beautiful performance in this magical country she calls home as well.   The interviews with all these amazing artists and more are featured in our music and culture special about Morocco which will be posted in 2020!   We lavishly resided in excellent care at Riad 144 in the old town of Marrakech as owner Jean Witho opened his heart and home to wandering artists and reporters. This Riad has a few of the most exciting and beautiful rooms I have ever seen. Each one with a different theme displaying different sides and styles of Morocco. The Berber room displaying beautiful amazigh art or the more “modern” room if you will with African contemporary pieces. Tobias the turtle roams free in the communal area just to make sure all the guests have a good time and will join you for your afternoon tea or beautiful glass of wine.   We have some great interviews with legendary djs, producers, rockstars and rappers making its way to online and print. We spoke to the movers and shakers when it comes to innovation in sound, venues, managing artists and festivals. We had drinks with emerging artists and went to heaps of listening parties to share in their new found excitement.   We can't wait to share more and to inspire you to listen to great artists and visit different places around the world to change your “backdrop” as you dance the night away.
