Giorgio Armani Men's and women's collections Spring/Summer 2021

Fashion Week These are timeless thoughts, as narrated by the voice of renowned and multi-awarded Italian actor Pierfrancesco Favino in the 20-minutes video-documentary that precedes and introduces the Giorgio Armani Spring/Summer 2021 show, and that, through an emotional edit of images, memories and archive interviews spans decades of Armani's dazzlingly consistent style, before making way to the new collection, broadcasted for the first time on television.   In the video-documentary, Giorgio Armani's language evolves relentlessly, whilst staying firm in its roots. It swings in subtle balances between rigour and sensuality, city and exoticism, purity and slight concessions to eccentricity. It is the result of a process of subtraction, which captures time and sublimates it, creating fashion that goes beyond fashion. Each new collection adds headwords to an expanding vocabulary, while reiterating a sense of elegance which puts the person at the centre.   For the Spring/Summer 2021 collection, silhouettes, for both men and women, are essential, soft, fluid: a blend of pure lines and neutral colours —grey, beige, black, blue— that light up with occasional geometries, swarming with rhythmic patterns, following an idea of ton sur ton that is real but also metaphorical, but never prevails over the rest. What emerges is the personality of a woman and a man who are free from aesthetic constraints, careful instead to express themselves through what they wear. Whether everything is matte or shimmering, it is the sense of measure that keeps asserting itself, overcoming time.

Gucci’s new Men’s Tailoring Campaign: Life of a Rock Star

Men For Gucci’s new men’s tailoring collection, Creative Director Alessandro Michele calls on three idiosyncratic musicians and chooses to work again with photographer and director Harmony Korine to conjure images of an archetypical rock star lifestyle, envisioning a meeting of eccentric creatives in a Californian modernist mansion, located in Los Angeles where the campaign was shot in February.   Among the bold architectural spaces and the wood, stone, glass and shagpile of this West Coast pad, musicians A$AP Rocky, Iggy Pop and Tyler, The Creator hang out with Iggy’s pet parrot, Biggy Pop, and its friend, a striking blue hyacinth macaw. The housemates goof about with their pets on the grassy terrace at night, at the kitchen table with a huge pot of spaghetti, and in the lounge in the afternoon sunlight. Together the trio have fun, and while each is undoubtedly a separate, powerful personality, their shared love of panache creates common ground.   Alessandro Michele’s eclectic vision put together these three cult artists, who have distinctive style, creating a strange, unexpected dialogue.  “The result is a group campaign with three men who I believe had fun too. There is always this image of eccentricity, because they are in fact eccentric themselves. A certain type of fun is also portrayed and the idea of how one’s obsession with appearances can create a kind of common ground that can become a sort of brotherhood. It was beautiful to see these three men together, seemingly different but very similar”, explains the Creative Director. “This is another chapter of this journey. With these campaigns, I am working on different ways of being elegant, and these three men embody this idea perfectly. I like to tell the story of elegance in completely arbitrary and unexpected ways. Perhaps elegance is something in the air that sometimes you are not even ready for. Male elegance can be unpredictable and strange.”     CREDITS: Creative Director: Alessandro Michele Art Director: Christopher Simmonds Photographer/Director: Harmony Korine Hair: Paul Hanlon Make-up: Thomas De Kluyver Talents: A$AP Rocky; Iggy Pop; Tyler, The Creator For Gucci’s new men’s tailoring collection, Creative Director Alessandro Michele calls on three idiosyncratic musicians and chooses to work again with photographer and director Harmony Korine to conjure images of an archetypical rock star lifestyle, envisioning a meeting of eccentric creatives in a Californian modernist mansion, located in Los Angeles where the campaign was shot in February.   Among the bold architectural spaces and the wood, stone, glass and shagpile of this West Coast pad, musicians A$AP Rocky, Iggy Pop and Tyler, The Creator hang out with Iggy’s pet parrot, Biggy Pop, and its friend, a striking blue hyacinth macaw. The housemates goof about with their pets on the grassy terrace at night, at the kitchen table with a huge pot of spaghetti, and in the lounge in the afternoon sunlight. Together the trio have fun, and while each is undoubtedly a separate, powerful personality, their shared love of panache creates common ground.   Alessandro Michele’s eclectic vision put together these three cult artists, who have distinctive style, creating a strange, unexpected dialogue.  “The result is a group campaign with three men who I believe had fun too.

The House of Givenchy is pleased to present the first advertising campaign by its new Creative Director, Matthew M. Williams

The House of Givenchy is pleased to present the first advertising campaign by its new Creative Director, Matthew M. Williams

Fashion The House of Givenchy is pleased to present the first advertising campaign by its new Creative Director, Matthew M. Williams.   In a series of images shot by the photographer Nick Knight, a longtime friend and collaborator, the designer lifts the veil on his aesthetic for Givenchy, revealing key hardware symbols that he will bring to the fore in collections for both women and men. Since his appointment as Creative Director of Givenchy in June 2020, Williams has been quietly honing a fresh, modern attitude for the Parisian fashion house. He began by drawing inspiration from his new life in Paris, incorporating beloved places and emblems into his designs. In particular, a picture he took of the celebrated ‘love locks’ adorning the bridges of Paris was the starting point for an original take on Givenchy signatures. Metallic symbols floating against gradated pastel grounds, creating a distinctive, street-edged tone. Williams infuses classic chains with his personal vision: flat and angular links are stylized into a “G” shape— a subtle yet immediately recognizable visual code denoting unity and interconnectedness.   Sophisticated unisex accessories express a symbiosis between the Givenchy universe and the designer’sflair with hardware. Gold-finish “Givenchy” locks nod to the U-lock design or come with a spare, narrow body and elongated shackle that closes with a textured screw. A padlock embossed with an exotic skin motif sports two asymmetrical piercings at its base so that its sibling locks can hook up, or not — an open invitation to make this iconic new symbol one’s own. For digital platforms, Williams oversaw a video, also shot by Knight, featuring custom vocals by another of his close friends, the rapper and songwriter Playboi Carti. Behind the scenes, the “work in progress”currently underway at Givenchy takes shape as images of the new House symbols cascade from a high- res printer and Carti riffs on right versus wrong pronunciations of the House’s name. In a daring choice for a debut campaign, Williams highlights Givenchy’s new symbols in still-lifes accentuated by scaled-down “Givenchy” and “4G” signatures, an assertion of discretion, worldliness and refinement.     The debut campaign by Matthew M. Williams for the House of Givenchy will break on September 26th, 2020. The House of Givenchy is pleased to present the first advertising campaign by its new Creative Director, Matthew M.

BOSS revealed their new Spring 2021 collection

Fashion Week BOSS revealed an uplifting, colorful and relaxed Spring 21 collection with an outdoor show at the Palazzo del Senato in Milan. Staged before a limited number of guests, the runway show was augmented by a multi-platform global livestream, and a simultaneous live event in China.   The Palazzo del Senato holds particular significance for the brand, as the first-ever BOSS Womenswear show was held here exactly 20 years ago. This return, two decades on, was an opportunity to celebrate the enduring confidence, elegance, and strength of the BOSS woman, as she moves together with the BOSS man into a whole new era.   The tree-lined Spring 21 runway, set amid the columns of the open-air courtyard, brought architecture and nature into perfect alignment. Every tree from the show space will now be donated to the city of Milan, and cared for by BOSS for two years.   Guests including Suki Waterhouse, Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl, Maria Pedraza (Élite), Caro Daur and Louis Hofmann (Dark)attended the show in person, while TikTok stars Bryanboy and Nic Kaufmann created content to support the TikTok livestream – a first for a German fashion brand. Walking the runway this season, models included Irina Shayk, Adut Akech, Felice Norordhoff, Mica Arganaraz, Nico Potur, Alpha Dia, Leon Dame and Jonas Gloer.

FENDI presents their incredible Women’s and Men’s Spring Summer 2021 Collections

FENDI presents their incredible Women’s and Men’s Spring Summer 2021 Collections

Fashion Week Seen through the looking glass, the FENDI Women’s and Men’s Spring Summer 2021 Collections are a patchwork of memories designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi. Time spent with family – generations reunited at home in Rome – is a catalyst for quiet introspection: at the window or in the garden, watching the world go by.     From the inside looking out, and the outside looking in, shadows and reflections are cast across the collections. Intimacy is abstracted through signposts of domestic life – a trousseau of stories unpacked and unfolded in a weaving together of the precious and the plain. The purity of linen is vital: romanced with cotton, feathers, fur and eiderdown quilting, it conjures images of embroidered bedding and tableware – maternal souvenirs passed down from mother to child. A flaxen palette breathes in natural shades of wheat, milk and honey amidst reflections of sky blue and cardinal red, as cinematic black and white shine like spotlights cast on cloth. Windows – metaphorical and physical – are a leitmotif impressed upon garments in a game of transparency and texture throughout.   In tandem, the Women’s and Men’s Collections explore FENDI traditions stripped bare – from boutis satin quilting to the linear encrustations of jour d’echelle ladder-work and flourishes of ajouré flowers that expose skin to create layers of light and shade. Formal structures are softened – coat backs and shirt sleeves unbutton, tailored details are ‘debossed’ in trompe l’oeil knitwear, and embroidered house coats and flared tunics elevate the comforts of home. Lightness and depth intermingle in faded flora print linens and latticework furs, or the intricate workmanship of apron dresses in silk duchesse, embroidered tulle and gazar. Acknowledging the gravity of a moment, clothes tell stories of the rigour of Italian craft and the emotion of our universal experience – FENDI workmanship applied under surreal circumstances.   The FENDI Women’s and Men’s Spring Summer 2021 Accessories collections play with construction and embellishment to conceal and reveal. In movement, embroidered silk veils float over Baguette and Peekaboo bags in floral fur and cotton ajouré or quilted FF logo leather. Woven textures abound: market baskets in recycled PVC, stretchlattice frame totes, picnic baskets and canvas luggage are pragmatic and light-hearted solutions for daily life.   The ‘hand in hand’ Baguette project celebrates a unique collaboration with local artisans across Italy, including the Abruzzo and Marche regions shown on the runway. Handcrafted in Abruzzo, a sheer Baguette is constructed in tombolo aquilano sugar-coated lace, a technique refined by Benedictine nuns since the 15th century. From Marche, a structuredBaguette woven in strands of natural willow is inspired by the baskets of local fishermen.   Laser-cut and ajouré apron belts hold the second iteration of the FENDI X CHAOS ‘tech jewellery’ capsule collection dipped in pastel colours, and chain drop earrings feature pearls and pairs of cheeky FENDI dice.  On foot for Women – woven boots, elastic pumps, and rattan pool slides evoke a tonal spring elegance. For Men – sling-back boat shoes and T-bar plimsolls are new twisted classics.     THE SHOW SETTING:   At the FENDI show space in Milan, the Women’s and Men’s Spring Summer 2021 Collections designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi are unveiled together in an intimate fashion show setting evoking the traditional and domestic inspirations of the collections. An airy scenography composed of fresh white curtains floats in the breeze – complemented by the undulating sofas that return from the Fall Winter 2020-21 Women’s show set, now covered in white cotton.   A series of luminous vignettes punctuates the space – digital ‘windows’ projected across walls and floors revealing glimpses of the outside world, from garden flora to passing birds and the day’s cycle of the setting sun. As models walk through the show set, each window projects a unique story across their looks, creating fleeting moments of shadow and light that accentuate the workmanship of each garment.   Continuing the personal narrative of the Fendi Family, the show casting includes a selection of related models: mothers, fathers, sisters and sons include Edie and Olympia Campbell, Cecilia and Lucas Chancellor, and Philippe and Dries Haseldonckx.   For guests watching at home, a dual digital format splices together live footage of the fashion show with pre-recorded clips by the German director Norbert Schoerner.     THE MUSIC:   Mixed live by the Italian musician Lorenzo Senni with a live string quartet, the FENDI Spring Summer 2021 Fashion Show soundtrack is an original synthesizer composition featuring an extract from the film The Challenge composed by Senni and tracks from his album Scacco Matto (2020). Known for the invention of ‘pointillist trance’ music, Senni follows in a line of new wave Italian electronic musicians to collaborate with the house of FENDI, with previous artists including Caterina Barbieri, Ninos du Brasil, Donato Dozzy and Alessandro Cortini.

DIESEL Presents “Unforgettable Denim”

DIESEL Presents “Unforgettable Denim”

Fashion DIESEL announces the launch of its Fall 2020 campaign, which is rooted into one of denim’s key, longstanding elements: memory. Denim gets better with experience and becomes a sort of wearable record of the times you’ve had. The pen marks on the pocket? Doodles during a long flight to a faraway location. The scrape at the hem? From a night spent partying in Berlin. Denim collects these moments no matter what; not even 2020 can cancel a great pair of jeans.    In what has been a generation-defining year, DIESEL invites people—the world over—to celebrate the beautiful memories made in lieu of the plans that had to be put on hold, and wear these unexpected highlights with pride. For all the trips, events, parties, plans, ceremonies and more that could not take place in 2020, we are finding the opportunity to tell the surprise stories the connections that were made, the fun that was had, and the positive silver linings.    At the center of the Fall 2020 campaign is DIESEL’s new customizable denim collection. Through a special portal on www.diesel.com—and in select stores worldwide—clients will be able to personalize the leather tags on denim with something they could not participate this year. The intention is to commemorate what they did notdo, and the memory-making moments that ensued in the absence of those plans. A birthday party called off? Celebrate it by remembering it. A surf trip postponed? Create a keepsake for what might have been and use it as inspiration to plan for a later date – always with your favorite, unforgettable denim.   The platform is multi-subject: dozens of video clips, with real life anecdotes, directed by Pantera of the group Anonymous Content, will live online and on social media. Key visuals have been created by JP Bonino and will feature DIESEL watches and eyewear in addition to ready-to-wear.    The 2-month platform will follow the stories of various talents, influential figures including Evan Mock, the skateboarder and model. Normally a resident of New York City, he chose to enter isolation in Mallorca, Spain, reconnecting with nature. Julia Fox, an Italian-American actress, found unexpectedly restored love during lockdown. Donte Colley looked inward and became more active in fighting for what’s right. These individuals were photographed by RAYSCORRUPTEDMIND.   And it doesn't stop here: DIESEL is also partnering with different canceled events, like UNTOLD Festival, one of the most renowned music festivals in the world, to create a series of limited-edition denim trousers called the 2020 Fallen Edition. UNTOLD has won the award for Best Major Festival in Europe from its inception. In a “normal” year, it is visited by more than 350,000 fans from across the globe. Those fans will hold 2020’s edition in their imagination – and in a pair of customized Diesel jeans.

THE TAILORED PUNK WOMEN'S AND MEN'S DSQUARED2 SPRING SUMMER 2021

THE TAILORED PUNK WOMEN'S AND MEN'S DSQUARED2 SPRING SUMMER 2021

Fashion Week Tailoring, a style core of the DNA of Dsquared2 finishes every piece for the co-ed Spring Summer 2021 collection. True to the brand’s essence, the lineup features contrasting and mixing influences. Military details are worked in elegantly, and then given a punk twist with brilliant color and accessories. Silhouettes tread the line between rebellious and refined. The resulting looks are designed to seek the spirit of those who wear them.   A military theme comes by way of clothing inspired by aviation. Nylon jumpsuits feature elongated zippers. Other utilitarian harnessing is strapped into tailored jackets and trousers. Pants in tropical weight wools, papery nylon or cotton canvas come super cigarette or slightly loose to fall over classic leather lace-ups. Oversized cargo pockets and zips detail their forms. Mini studs cover men’s jacket lapels and vests. Denim jackets are spliced on the collar and button placket to create the appearance of a strap. A men’s high waist pant is constructed with a wrapped buckled closure inspired by a military uniform.   The earthy color palette is broken with tones of orange and cobalt blue—in bold stripes appliquéd onto jackets and tops. Other stripes are applied in asymmetric style on pant legs and buttoned shirts. Denim runs the gamut of pristine intense blues to super destroyed and ripped, to bleached out white jeans. Women’s denim pants have a laminated coating.   Contrasting with the modern nylon and sartorial fabrics is transparency—lace tops for men, and dresses for women. A zebra print is worked into a top and shirt for men, constructed with other textured fabrics, while for women it takes on chic proportions in a knee length pencil skirt, or short-sleeved coat.   Sexiness is defined in women’s clean black or white tailoring: skirts and dresses with slits and mini belts, coats and jackets with plunging necklines to reveal leather harnesses that loop around the neck and down on the décolleté. Dresses have feminine shapes, in sheer knits, lace-trimmed satin or tailored form-fitting styles with peekaboo backs. Pumps and sandals with fine buckled straps, and a kitten heel thong sandal with feathers underscore the collection’s feminine appeal.   Accessories play on the punk theme: men wear pearl necklaces, as a single strand or with a pendant, or moulded leather bracelets and rings, and carry doctor style leather bags and flat fanny packs.  Women’s bags include leather rectangular styles and feather coated purses.

Parajumpers debuts "FOR YOUR JOURNEY"

Fashion Italian-born luxury outerwear label, Parajumpers, debuts its Autumn / Winter 2020 campaign celebrating the paths we take in life to expand our physical and mental horizons.   The campaign, titled For Your Journey, launches in conjunction with the AW20 Collection. It features a diverse cast of creatives and artisans based in the rugged beauty of New York’s Catskills Mountains, who push the mental and physical boundaries of discovery. With this collection, Parajumpers’ vision is to celebrate the journeys we each take and the progress we make along the way.   The platform is a statement that Parajumpers is designed For Your Journey. From a product standpoint, it means they create apparel that enables you to withstand the elements on your journey. From a brand standpoint, it means they inspire you to take on new journeys that enrich your life and overall well-being.     Parajumpers’ collection inspires wearers to take on new adventures, casting themselves as the lead character in their own life story. The modernity of the men’s series is defined by new materials, shapes and by outstanding new colors. All shades of deep natural colours are enhanced by details in the unmistakable PJS orange. The women’s series brings together elegance and sportswear through soft, oversized shapes, with a nod to warmth and fashion. The strong materials are emphasized by a variety of colours, from glossy to matt neutral shades, to bright tones.   Through tactical fibers and silhouettes, each piece draws attention to often overlooked details much like the people we briefly interact with, places we pass through and fleeting moments that enrich each of our day to day lives. Parajumpers hopes For Your Journey will open wearers minds to new ways of thinking, living, and interacting with the world.

Colmar presents its collaboration with Vision of Super

Fashion Colmar presents its collaboration with Vision of Super: a collection that will conquer the underground soul of consumers attentive to trap, rap, street and contemporary culture.   The new young capsule collection reveals the iconic Colmar jackets enhanced by the graphics that have made the success of the brand created in 2018 from an idea of Dario Pozzi.It is a total look collection, with six jackets (three with a slimmer fit for men and three puffier unisex ones) and a choice of sweatshirts (with and without a hood), t-shirts, trousers, caps and a backpack. Red,  black and white are mixed in shiny and opaque fabrics and are the core of the collection with the inevitable flame design, the distinctive sign of Vision Of Super which literally lights up the Colmar logo. The result is a definitely unique and eye-catching interpretation of the iconic “stamp”.   “With this new collaboration, we wanted to explore a world of the very young more into street and underground wear,” said Giulio Colombo, Colmar CEO with a mandate for the product.     “Colmar is a company with a history going back almost a hundred years, a strong DNA and an important heritage, for us it is extremely interesting and stimulating to work on a four-hands project with a young and new brand like Vision of Super, giving rise to a collection which reflects the perfect balance between expertise and freshness.”   “Collaborating with Colmar has been a dream that came true”, explains Dario Pozzi, founder of Vision of Super. “To create this collection, we worked in close contact, together, for more than a year. The result is a series of unique pieces, made in very high quality materials and collector-worthy, dedicated to the universe of the Millennials.”   For the occasion, Colmar and Vision of Super have created a digital photography project in collaboration with the Istituto Marangoni Milano • The School of Fashion, one of the most important fashion schools in the world, which this year celebrates 85 years of history. Cecilia Rossini, Gianluca Sacchetti and Valentina Volpe, new graduates of the Styling & Creative Direction course, have taken, together with the photographer Paolo Santambrogio, a series of high impact photos which will be visible from next October on the official social networks @colmaroriginals and @visionofsuper.     The Colmar A.G.E. x Vision of Super collection will be on sale in selected stores, in the Colmar flagship stores and online on visionofsuper.com and Colmar.it from October 2020.

PORSCHE X BOSS FALL/WINTER 2020 CAPSULE COLLECTION

Men Porsche and BOSS come together for a fourth season to unveil a trend-driven capsule of menswear designs for Fall/Winter 2020, directly inspired by the aesthetics of a Porsche sports car.   Hoodies, denim, and jersey join tailoring and leather in the new collection, which, combined with bold use of color, delivers an even younger and more modern feel to the successful partnership than before.   Highlight pieces include a matte black outerwear jacket that reverses to a glossy red puffer design, a zip-through knit cardigan with channel-quilted nylon front panel, and drawstring waist pants finished with racing stripes at the pockets.   A mercerized cotton hoodie, branded glossy leather sneakers, and a perfectly cut T-shirt with stripe details all create a relaxed, yet effortlessly confident mood.   The signature BOSS attention to detail is evident throughout. Alongside curved seams inspired by the Porsche silhouette, other details also refer to the iconic sports car design. The key pocket inside every jacket on the left-hand side corresponds to the position of the ignition, while the racing stripe taping instantly recalls the distinctive backlights.   Impactful black, dark olive, and red anchor this season’s color palette, and are reflected in theFall/Winter campaign film, featuring the Porsche Taycan. Presenting the new collection alongside an all-electric car is another nod to the spirit of innovation at the heart of both brands.
