Vans in collaboration with Sandy Liang

Accessories A trend setter since 1966, Vans is always ahead of the curve. For spring, the ‘Off The Wall’ brand partners with New York designer Sandy Liang on a fashion forward collection of footwear and apparel.

The quirky collaboration features unique takes on five classic Vans styles plus a head to toe apparel including a hoodie, tee, bike shorts, bucket hat, and crossbody bag.Across each of the Vans x Sandy Liang footwear iterations, materials play a defining role. From fleece-like cheetah prints to metal jewelry affixed directly to the upper, each is as unique as the last. With a built-in ankle bracelet and multiple metal charms sewn directly to the pink velour upper, the Sandy Liang Era stands out as the hero of the lot. Also noteworthy is the similarly styled Old Skool (a second Old Skool colorway features black butterfly art and custom laces), and a cheetah print Classic Slip-On Platform and Vans Sport.On the apparel side, the theme of ‘90s nostalgia continues with marbled colorways and butterfly iconography. The Sandy BF Hoodie features an exaggerated boyfriend fit with novelty eyelets on the hood some with piercing detailing along with embroidered and screen-printed graphics. The Sandy LS BF Tee is made of heavy cotton jersey with novelty wash and discharge bleach art Butterfly graphic on chest and is finished with Checkerboard sleeves. The cycling inspired Sandy Bike Short is a cotton spandex blend with novelty snakeskin print and 7” inseam. A polka dot printed twill Bucket Hat with contrast satin lining and faux sherpa fashion bag—the Sandy Crossbody—featuring a single adjustable strap, exterior zip pocket, elastic cording for extra carrying options, metal hardware and a logo patch mounted on leather rounds out the accessories.   The Vans x Sandy Liang collection will be available in February 2020.

Wrangler launches Texas Slim

Wrangler launches Texas Slim

Fashion Wrangler launches Texas slim, with an incredible campaign that inspired you to live with the courage to take risks and live to the fullest.  For 30 years, Wrangler’s Texas jeans have been a best-selling fit. Now the denim icon introduces the Texas Slim, a new slimmer version for men. With a regular fit through the thigh, but cut slim on the leg, it includes all the authentic and relaxed elements of the original but with a contemporary, streamlined fit, keeping the heritage alive. To mark the launch, Wrangler creates a campaign to honor the daring and freedom of the America’s last few travelling motorcycle stunt shows. It aligns with Wrangler’s new global Wear with AbandonTM campaign, which celebrates the inspiring idea that life bursts with opportunity and adventure when you live with a spirit of risk and courage. In the early 1900's, motordromes became a popular carnival sideshow at state and county fairs across the United States. Inside the wooden drome, known as the Wall of Death, spectators watch from above as riders orbit its vertical walls on antique motorcycles in a heady mix of speed, noise and adrenaline. Defying death – and gravity. In the first half of the twentieth century there were hundreds of motordromes – now there are just a handful, a travelling piece of Americana, keeping this thrilling piece of motorcycle history alive. The riders trust each other with their lives. They hare stories of the road, broken bones, and a passion for a life of risk and adventure. Going from state to state, bringing heart-stopping danger and the romance of their nomadic lives to small-town America, the team set up and take down the motordrome together – always wearing Wranglers, engineered for hard, heavy work, and with enduring authentic Western style. Wrangler is the iconic denim cowboy brand, created in 1947 to serve cowboys and ranch workers, but soon adopted by rebels and trailblazers. Wrangler recognizes this spirit in the America’s motordrome riders, the men (and sometimes women) risking their lives to thrill a crowd, who are ensuring this way of life survives into a new generation. "Cowboys on steel, always in Wranglers."

Givenchy launches: Gentleman eau de parfum Boisée

Givenchy launches: Gentleman eau de parfum Boisée

Beauty Since 2017, the Gentleman Givenchy line offers a new vision of elegance combining audacity and delicacy. In 2020, Gentleman Givenchy’s power of attraction is intensifying with an unprecedented fragrance: Gentleman Givenchy Eau de Parfum Boisée, a new interpretation of the range that reveals Gentleman’s sensual side to the full. A surprising fragrance that pairs the warmth of ery wood with the subtle elegance of iris... Like a gentleman who demonstrates character and sensitivity in equal measure. Composed by master perfumers Nathalie Lorson and Olivier Cresp like the line’s three previous creations, this oral woody spicy scent leads us into a fragrant encounter whose charm works in three stages: AN INITIAL SPICY CONTACT It’s love at first sight from the beginning... Fresh and multifaceted coriander seed fuses with black pepper to enliven green geranium notes. A TÊTE-À-TÊTE WITH IRIS More than a timeless elegant ingredient, iris is a distinctive element in Gentleman Givenchy’s history, a signature of sophistication. At the heart of the Eau de Parfum Boisée, this ower is structured around cedar and an addictive cocoa that adds a touch of warmth to the note. A WOODY CARESS The mysterious depth of patchouli contrasts with the enveloping voluptuousness of sandalwood. The senses lose themselves in a burning wood accord. A modern adaptation of a vintage Givenchy design, the Gentleman Givenchy bottle exudes a timeless attitude with its understated lines. The eternal elegance of simplicity. After pure white and tuxedo black, it has adopted a brand new dress code for Gentleman Givenchy Eau de Parfum Boisée: the glass is tinted brown, while the band takes on a woody appearance marked by gold-toned writing.  Bold and tender in one, sophisticated and laid-back, sexy and funny... the Givenchy gentleman is a hero whose personality has more than one facet, not to mention more than one contradiction. In any case, he graciously asserts his uniqueness. He boasts a witty style, as seen in the ad campaigns in which he is played by one of the most talented British actors: Aaron Taylor-Johnson. The actor brilliantly embodies the Givenchy gentleman in all his spontaneity and elegance. He is the archetype of today’s gentleman: entirely in step with his time, he is a committed feminist who doesn’t hesitate to speak up to defend any form of equal rights. It is no coincidence that he forms one of cinema’s most inspiring power couples of our time with his wife, director Sam Taylor-Johnson. more on @givenchybeauty Since 2017, the Gentleman Givenchy line offers a new vision of elegance combining audacity and delicacy.

Audio Obscura

Music Audio Obscura makes another bold statement in Amsterdam with the announcement of a very special party on February 1st at the Westergas. In the heart of the incredible kinetic SKALAR art installation, by Christopher Bauder and Kangding Ray, none other than Peggy Gou will headline the evening. Known for her dreamy flow in tracks such as this years hit ‘Starry Night’, the South-Korean super star will showcase her endless energy.   Never one to miss an opportunity, Audio Obscura will take over the venue and work together with the rest of the team behind SKALAR to create a unique night. The music of Peggy Gou, Kangding Ray and supporting acts will interact in symbiotic fashion with the visuals arranged by Christopher Bauder that make up the installation. The artists will perform from the middle of the incredible circular venue. The masterminds behind SKALAR, musician Kangding Ray and light artist Christopher Bauder, will close off with a special custom techno live AV set for the occasion.   SKALAR is a huge audio-visual art experience from Berlin that lands in Amsterdam’s Gashouder from January 10 to February 5. The installation is powered by Audio Obscura, WHITEvoid and Westergas. It explores the effects of light and sound on human perception, with the creators narrating the journey as light vectors, kinetic mirrors and multi-channel surround sounds interact and evolve in reaction to each other. It seeks to provide a meditation on the fundamental nature and essence of basic human emotions, where light is treated as a solid material for the artists to manipulate as a sculptor would clay or marble.   Audio Obscura makes another bold statement in Amsterdam with the announcement of a very special party on February 1st at the Westergas.

At Givenchy, stars align for their new campaign

Fashion For its Spring-Summer 2020 advertising campaign, the House of Givenchy revisits its signature “couple” theme with an iconoclastic new pairing. In a glamorous, fresh dichotomy, the House reveals two icons — Charlotte Rampling and Marc Jacobs — in a campaign lensed by the photographer Craig McDean, with guidance from Givenchy Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller. Together and individually, the Paris-based actress and the New York-based designer appear in portraits that boldly celebrate individualistic beauty and the liberated, self-assured attitude so emblematic of Givenchy. The series honors the “Givenchy sitting” style of portraiture, a celebration of strength, wit and innate elegance. It follows the campaign starring Ariana Grande, for the Fall-Winter 2019 season. Wearing directional looks and key accessories from the Spring-Summer 2020 collection, each icon appears in his or her signature style, Rampling in masculine tailoring and Jacobs in more feminine pieces. Both radiate strength of character, their natural grandeur further underscored by a neutral setting. Dual perspectives feature close-ups and three-quarter length images in color and black and white. In single portraits, they offer a personal take on Bond accessories. Dressed in graphic black and white, Rampling folds the Bond shopper under her arm while Jacobs, dressed in a shiny black overcoat, carries a men’s Bond duffle that’s filled to capacity. In a naturalistic three-quarter portrait, Rampling gazes at the viewer with her signature mysterious half-smile, the season’s star handbag, the ID93 in buttery yellow suede, slung casually over her shoulder. In another image, she appears dressed in a trench and smoky aviators with the Mystic bag in cognac leather. A dual portrait shows the stars radiating grace and confidence. Posing back-to-back, they embody a complementary take on the season’s sophisticated red floral motifs. In the campaign’s companion video, Rampling and Jacobs stars appear “as they are”. Rampling - dressed in her signature masculine/feminine style – offers Jacobs a master class in the dramatic arts. With timeless chic and natural grace, the English icon coolly plays foil to the New York-based designer’s extravagant, tongue-in-cheek take on femininity. Surreal and absurd elements show the season’s footwear playing telephone, for example. The Givenchy Spring-Summer 2020 advertising campaign will be released online today and break in the March issue of selected magazines worldwide.

Dr. Martens teams up with A Bathing Ape

Accessories The iconic, original Dr. Martens boot 1460 will turn 60 this year, and that may be celebrated. Starting this month, a series of collaborations with 12 world-famous brands follows. Each of these brands has made its own design for the 1460 boot. The first partner in this series is the Japanese streetwear brand 'A Bathing Ape'.  Six decades of self-expression. Six eras in which Dr. Martens has grown with the subcultures that embraced them. Sixty years in which they made their carriers stronger. Dr.Martens has seen the world change drastically. But one thing has remained the same all the time: the 1460 boot. Over the past 60 years, the distinctive silhouette has been shaped and toppled by countless subcultures and freethinkers. The boots mean something else to everyone who tightens their laces. So Dr. Martens transferred the 1460 boat (not only in honor of their anniversary, but also because of the start of a new decade) to 12 innovative and world-famous brands, labels and designers. Together with them Dr. Martens their iconic silhouette in a new jacket. In 2020 a brand new boat will be released once a month. The legendary streetwear brand 'A Bathing Ape' is the first to take a turn. Dr. Martens has revived this creative relationship and is now working with them for the fourth time. BAPE (A Bathing Ape) was founded in 1993 in Tokyo, Japan. The origin of BAPE lies in the Harajuku culture of the early 90s. Their most distinctive design, the 'BAPE 1st Camo', became a legendary status symbol.  BAPE has often used British culture as a source of inspiration. For the 1460 REMASTERED collaboration series, they have made the perfect mix of their own legendary camouflage print and dr. Martens' classical DNA. With this they bring an ode to the history of both brands.  This special edition has eight lace eyes and a black nose of soft leather that is flanked by a green BAPE first camo print. The boot symbolizes the best of both brands. The famous BAPE STA  logo runs across the center of the boot. The yellow BAPE logo on the hi-loop completes the picture.  We are excited to share with you the coming collaboration later this year on @numero_netherlands. The boot is available from 25 January 2020 - in very limited numbers - in selected stores and online via drmartens.com.  The iconic, original Dr. Martens boot 1460 will turn 60 this year, and that may be celebrated. Starting this month, a series of collaborations with 12 world-famous brands follows. Each of these brands has made its own design for the 1460 boot. The first partner in this series is the Japanese streetwear brand 'A Bathing Ape'.  Six decades of self-expression. Six eras in which Dr. Martens has grown with the subcultures that embraced them. Sixty years in which they made their carriers stronger. Dr.Martens has seen the world change drastically. But one thing has remained the same all the time: the 1460 boot. Over the past 60 years, the distinctive silhouette has been shaped and toppled by countless subcultures and freethinkers. The boots mean something else to everyone who tightens their laces. So Dr. Martens transferred the 1460 boat (not only in honor of their anniversary, but also because of the start of a new decade) to 12 innovative and world-famous brands, labels and designers. Together with them Dr. Martens their iconic silhouette in a new jacket. In 2020 a brand new boat will be released once a month.

Bottega Veneta's Spring campaign is a vision of hedonistic aspiration

Fashion Anchored in sensuality and pure luxury, Bottega Veneta’s Spring 2020 campaign is a vision of hedonistic aspiration. Creative Director Daniel Lee, together with photographer Tyrone Lebon, continue their view of an endless summer. The eternal signifier of elevation and luxury. Idly floating through time. Sun. Sea. Pleasure. The faint ‘click’ of a lens shutter in the distance. Paparazzi poised for a glimpse. Top deck. Carefree sensuality unfolds. Calm. Casual. Confident. Featuring models Mica Argañarazand and Edoardo Sebastianelli. Cold chains warm against sun kissed skin. Weightless leather staples bend and slouch. Earthy tones and bold pops of colour. Endless blue sky bleeds to coral and violet. Opulent jewels and sequins glitter under evening fireworks. A day of indulgence draws to an end, only to be relived the next.
