Through the winter in warmth and comfort with Uniqlo U HEATTECH

Fashion International clothing retailer UNIQLO today announces the launch of the first Uniqlo U HEATTECH items. The new long-sleeved crewneck shirts for men and women combine sophisticated style with innovative functionality. The thin but warm HEATTECH thermowear made its debut in 2003 and has been a customer favorite for years. Uniqlo U HEATTECH is available in-store and online today, Monday November 2.   Uniqlo U is a collection of Future LifeWear Essentials, designed by Artistic Director Christophe Lemaire and his UNIQLO R&D team in Paris. Together they rediscover everyday clothing through the use of innovative materials and contemporary silhouettes. The collection is carefully designed for every season, with a simplified, modern wardrobe at its core.     The outside of this special material is made of 100% cotton, which provides a smooth and matt feel. The inside is made with the special HEATTECH technology with the characteristic that it absorbs and retains heat to provide continuous heat. Lightweight and comfortable, the new Uniqlo U styles offer flattering silhouettes in an understated color palette. The collection is designed based on the idea that it can be worn under a (sports) jacket or as an elegant T-shirt on its own. The new HEATTECH shirts will be available from today in all UNIQLO stores in the Netherlands and via uniqlo.eu.     Gentlemen:   Inspired by classic long sleeved shirts, the shoulderline has been dropped to create a more comfortable silhouette while balancing the proportions. The crew neck design with slightly longer ribbed cuffs is perfect for layering to create a minimalist, functional look.   Sizes: XS - 4XL * Number of colors: 6     Men's HEATTECH shirt: € 19.90     Ladies:   The simple beauty of this style reflects the contemporary design concept of “less is more”. This long sleeve has a simplistic neckline and seamless shoulders which ensures a smooth play of lines around the arms.   Sizes: XS ~ 3XL * Number of colors: 6     Ladies HEATTECH shirt: € 19.90   * XS, XXL, 3XL, and 4XL sizes are only available through the Uniqlo.com store.

GUCCI LAUNCHES ITS 2020 GIFT GIVING CAMPAIGN

GUCCI LAUNCHES ITS 2020 GIFT GIVING CAMPAIGN

Fashion For this holiday season, Gucci envisions a special night of the year, set in the ‘90s, when the workplace became an unlikely mixture of dance floor, nightclub and bar.     Channeling the retro vibe of those years’ office parties, the new Gucci Gift Giving campaign, conceived by Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele, shot by photographer Mark Peckmezian and filmed by director Akinola Davies Jr, portrays a cast of characters impatiently running down the clock to the end of the working day, aimlessly tapping on their keyboards and clock-watching. The date has been in the calendar for months, and there is a palpable frisson of excitement running through the grey and dull landscape of desks, photocopiers and metal filing cabinets. The seasonal decorations have been hastily put up: the tinsel, streamers and balloons are all in their places for this artificial festive setting.     As the clock strikes five, tables are turned and the corporate order of the place is shattered by ‘80s pop music and the popping of corks. Like superheroes transformed by their outfits, the Gucci-clad workers become extrovert clubbers, eager to show off their dance moves on the carpeted dancefloor. Liberated by their outfits and the sounds coming from the tape deck, the co-workers reveal their innermost characters as in a theatrical play where roles are changed and identities shuffled, transforming the normally homogenised surroundings into an exciting fantasy world.     The Gucci Gift Giving Collection offers therefore the key to access this enchanted party, bringing comfort and sparkle in the corporate land. The products were in fact shaped following two distinct families: the first batch is inspired by the cosy warmth of a winter blanket and makes use of a woolly jacquard fabric with houndstooth checks in green and red, while the second celebrates the party spirit with shiny sequins sparkling in a variety of colours from gold and silver to pastels and black.     The GG Marmont 2.0 medium and small chain shoulder bags are given the woolly jacquard treatment, as are small leather goods and luggage pieces, like the East/West Tote and medium backpack. There is also a vintage spirit at play here, as the same fabric is used on the shoes: women’s merino wool lined booties and a new genderless mule, as well as the Gucci Tennis 1977 sneaker in several styles. Other iconic accessories include a baseball cap, bucket hat, earmuffs, socks, a scarf and a poncho.     The same handbags in mini and small chain shoulder models are also offered covered with sparkling sequins, in black, silver, gold and pastel pink and green, and in a striped multicolour version. The effect is achieved by sewing three-millimetre micro sequins onto a silk panel, creating a fabric that shimmers and shines. A mini bucket bag comes in the same material and colours as the GG Marmont designs (including the stripe), and the sequins have also been applied to shoes in the form of women’s slides and loafers, as well as to the Gucci Tennis 1977 sneakers  . For those who wish to match their footwear to their bags, there are also glistening sequin-covered heels. Soft accessories complete the sequin offer: a hairband, beret and gloves in a variety of colours.     A new Gucci Arcade game inspired by the campaign will be released in the Gucci App. Taking the lead from the legendary Conga Master arcade game developed by Undercoders, the latest Gucci digital creation sees players take control of an employee inside an office setting, with the aim of joining up with colleagues to take part in a Conga dance. Bringing the party to multiple platforms, users will also be able to immerse themselves in the Gucci holiday season atmosphere enjoying a 3D experience that recreates the campaign environment. Through these innovative digital contents, Gucci keeps pushing the codes of the House in unexplored virtual territories – tightening the bond between the GG logo and the “Good Game” high five in gaming vernacular. Visiting the microsite created for the occasion, players will discover the Gucci Gift Giving collection while navigating into an interactive and joyful office, being able to purchase their favorite items on Gucci.com through this fully digital path.      The campaign also marks, on November 11th, the launch of the new Gucci packaging that features an ornate green decorative pattern embossed onto paper bags and cardboard boxes. Beige tissue paper featuring the same pattern is used to wrap pieces. Natural-coloured dust bags and suit carriers are also utilised, and throughout the packaging the Gucci logo is rendered in black. Significantly, in keeping with Gucci’s commitment to sustainability, the packaging has been created with strategic design choices at every step to have a reduced impact on the environment. All paper and cardboard come from sustainably managed forest sources and an uncoated paper has been used to ensure it is fully recyclable. The paper is also colored a unique green at the beginning of the production process to reduce the use of inks. The shopping bag handles are black torchon made of 100% recycled polyester and knotted to avoid using glues. Garment and dust bags materials are a mix of regenerated cotton and recycled polyester. Black grosgrain ribbons are 100% organic cotton. Hangers are made of recycled polystyrene.     Credits: Creative Director: Alessandro Michele Art Director: Christopher Simmonds Photographer: Mark Peckmezian Film Director: Akinola Davies Jr For this holiday season, Gucci envisions a special night of the year, set in the ‘90s, when the workplace became an unlikely mixture of dance floor, nightclub and bar.     Channeling the retro vibe of those years’ office parties, the new Gucci Gift Giving campaign, conceived by Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele, shot by photographer Mark Peckmezian and filmed by director Akinola Davies Jr, portrays a cast of characters impatiently running down the clock to the end of the working day, aimlessly tapping on their keyboards and clock-watching.

PARO STORE: An independent digital retail platform

PARO STORE: An independent digital retail platform

Fashion  PARO STORE has taken a different approach to e-retail. Founded in Amsterdam and serving the world, PARO offers a diverse range of independent design-focused brands all of which are driving positive change in the fashion industry. PARO STORE gives equal priority to design and sustainability, so shoppers do not have to compromise on aesthetics or their morals. At launch PARO brings together clothing and accessories for all, from Ullac OY, Mia Larsson, Aëdon, Atmos and Pat Guzik amongst others.     PARO STORE is the idea of two Amsterdam based creatives: Ruth Sutherland and Zoe Patience. Before they met as expats in Amsterdam, Ruth was working as a digital marketing director with Nike and Johnnie Walker and Zoe was a senior merchandiser for Calvin Klein. Their complimentary experience matched a shared frustration with the unsustainable norms of the fashion industry and led them to leave their jobs and focus on creating something different. Their approach to PARO STORE balances being a business with being a catalyst for positive change in the world.     “We know that most people want to shop in a more sustainable way, but they don’t want to compromise; something we totally understand. We want to change people's mindset by showing them that this really is the most exciting, creative and innovative side of the fashion industry. And it doesn’t involve compromising in any way.” Ruth.   The clothing industry is polluting and exploitative, and its processes deeply entrenched. There is real change happening though, and the most exciting change is being driven by a community of smaller brands and independent designers. Despite increasing demand for sustainable clothing, these brands are difficult for shoppers to find online - where there are increasingly fewer, bigger winners. PARO STORE provides a platform for many such brands and designers to come together. Each brand has its individual space on the site yet gains strength from the exposure delivered as part of a collective.  Visit PARO STORE here.  PARO STORE has taken a different approach to e-retail.

LACOSTE X NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

LACOSTE X NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

Fashion Lacoste and National Geographic unite for a collaboration that celebrates the beauty of the natural world.   Lacoste is proud to work with National Geographic on a capsule collection that combines Lacoste’s timelesssilhouettes and celebrated ts with the rich, majestic prints and forms of the animal kingdom. It is acelebration of this Earth and all its wonder; and a call to action to remind of the importance of conservation. The central inspiration for this exclusive range ofmenswear, womenswear and childrenswear comes from the ambitious National Geographic Photo Ark project. Ledby award-winning photographer and National GeographicFellow Joel Sartore, the Photo Ark is a long-term effort to document every species living in the world’s zoos, aquariums, and wildlife sanctuaries. The project, and in turn this new collaboration, aims to celebrate the diversityand splendour of the animal kingdom. To craft this collection, Lacoste meticulously combed Sartore’s existing archive of over 10,500 species, nally deciding to spotlight four key animals, chosen for theirvibrant stories and exceptional beauty; the Grévy’s Zebra(Equus grevyi), the Green and Black Poison Dart Frog (Dendrobates auratus), the Halloween Pennant Dragon y(Celithemis eponina) and the Jaguar (Panthera onca).Watch as the croc goes stripey like the zebra, or speckled like the dart frog.   Across the collection, the dazzling coats and scales of thesefour species are interpreted as graphics and prints. Wearerscan adopt the spots of the Jaguar, or wrap themselves in the mesmerising wing of the Dragon y, with its hypnotic,delicate cross-connecting lines. Education is paramount – every garment within the collection comes with a special hangtag detailing information about each species. Did you know that most Poisonous Dart Frogs aren’t poisonousat all? Or that the Halloween Pennant Dragon y gets itsspooky name from its orange wings?

Lacoste and National Geographic unite for a collaboration that celebrates the beauty of the natural world.   Lacoste is proud to work with National Geographic on a capsule collection that combines Lacoste’s timelesssilhouettes and celebrated ts with the rich, majestic prints and forms of the animal kingdom. It is acelebration of this Earth and all its wonder; and a call to action to remind of the importance of conservation. The central inspiration for this exclusive range ofmenswear, womenswear and childrenswear comes from the ambitious National Geographic Photo Ark project. Ledby award-winning photographer and National GeographicFellow Joel Sartore, the Photo Ark is a long-term effort to document every species living in the world’s zoos, aquariums, and wildlife sanctuaries. The project, and in turn this new collaboration, aims to celebrate the diversityand splendour of the animal kingdom. To craft this collection, Lacoste meticulously combed Sartore’s existing archive of over 10,500 species, nally deciding to spotlight four key animals, chosen for theirvibrant stories and exceptional beauty; the Grévy’s Zebra(Equus grevyi), the Green and Black Poison Dart Frog (Dendrobates auratus), the Halloween Pennant Dragon y(Celithemis eponina) and the Jaguar (Panthera onca).Watch as the croc goes stripey like the zebra, or speckled like the dart frog.   Across the collection, the dazzling coats and scales of thesefour species are interpreted as graphics and prints. Wearerscan adopt the spots of the Jaguar, or wrap themselves in the mesmerising wing of the Dragon y, with its hypnotic,delicate cross-connecting lines.
