BOSS to expand Responsible Tailoring collections

Fashion This Spring/Summer 2020 season, BOSS underlines its commitment to a more sustainable approach to fashion, with a focus on premium tailoring. The brand is building on the success of its Traceable Wool designs by adding womenswear pieces to the range, and launching a fully vegan suit, free of all animal-based materials, as part of its menswear collection.   The women’s designs in traceable merino wool offer vivid spring blues and traffic- stopping red alongside timeless navy. A perfectly cut single-button jacket showcases the impeccable tailored aesthetic of BOSS Womenswear, and can be paired with a choice of wide-leg, cropped, or tapered pants in the same fabric. Pinstriped navy tailoring – two jackets, a skirt, pants, and a dress, all designed to be mixed and matched – completes the capsule.   Highlights of the men’s collection for Spring/Summer 2020 include a pinstriped wool jersey suit with drawstring pants, a summary lightweight slim-fit suit, athleisure- inspired tapered pants with cuffed hems, and an elevated polo design. This season, BOSS Menswear offers more responsibly tailored styles than ever before.   The newly introduced vegan suit is a modern slim-fit design with a lightweight construction. Available in three colors – light beige, dark blue, and black – it is crafted in Germany from pure certified organic European grown linen. All components which, in a traditional premium suit, would contain materials such as wool or horsehair, have been omitted or replaced with vegan alternatives. This ensures that the entire item is free from animal-based materials.   This Spring/Summer 2020 season, BOSS underlines its commitment to a more sustainable approach to fashion, with a focus on premium tailoring.

Filling Pieces travels to Dakar, Senegal to explore it's new collection

Fashion Amidst one of the most challenging times across the globe Filling Pieces drops their Spring Summer collection themed ‘Family’. Within this collection family is defined as a bond between human beings that is based on spirit and mutual beliefs, rather than blood. Right now that connection is more important than ever. The collection is designed around a set of fictional family members that challenges the status quo and stereotypes. As a matriarchal structure, the ‘CEO Mom’ is head of the family to the Worker Father, Rebel Cousin and Preppy Brother. Each with their own definitive style.   Within this editorial, Shot by photographer Miftha Bahardeen, Ready To Wear designer Dieylane Cisse, travels back home to Dakar Senegal, to shoot his first collection designed for the brand. He explores the story of BOYHOOD, where he has casted all the models and is translating the different ages and generations throughout the designed apparel pieces.   For the first time, the Dutch fashion brand unveils its first ever dress shoes alongside this season's ready-to-wear release in their continued mission to bridge the gap between streetwear and hi-fashion. The ‘Waspy Dress Up’ - assigned to the Preppy Brother, is amongst the first of these styles to be released for SS20. The formal, surprisingly lightweight silhouette boasts features including distinctive, stainless steel snap buckle-fastener and sole plate, complete with FP branding.   Filling Pieces SS20 drop one is available online now, with the second drop to follow later this month.

Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen launching a new collection

Jewelry Behind every successful woman is a supportive man – or maybe more. Proudly unveiling a new collection of men’s and unisex jewellery, Charlotte Lynggaard pays tribute to the men closest to her. Each piece in the collection was originally a gift for a male member of the Lynggaard family.   Michel: The stunning braided cuff bracelet was originally a gift to Charlotte Lynggaard’s husband of 25 years, company CCO Michel Normann. The original wide silver bracelet has grown into a selection of open bracelets and open rings, masterfully crafted from Sterling silver and 18K white and yellow gold. Designed to t men and women alike, the braided trophy bracelet is available in two widths.   Julius: The designer created the stamped cuff bracelet as a Christmas present for her son, Julius. Each tiny stamp subtly greets one of the men in the Lynggaard family. The sh re ects Julius’ personality – attentiveness and love of the ocean. The scull is a favourite motif of Charlotte Lynggaard’s brother, brand CEO Søren Lynggaard. Another stamp illustrates founder Ole Lynggaard’s love of nature. The evil eye stamp is meant to protect and watch over the person wearing the bracelet. All Julius bracelets are available in silver and 18K white and yellow gold. The selection also includes a wide ring, elaborately stamped and crafted from 18K gold.   Life Bracelets: Developing her vastly successful collection of Life bracelets, Charlotte Lynggaard’s new and bigger addition to the Life family is indeed larger than life. The perfect addition to a watch or styled with an open bangle, the new Life bracelet is designed with a large hook lock crafted from 18K yellow or white gold. The hand-knotted string bracelet is slightly thicker than smaller Life bracelet.   Founder's Keepers: Founder Ole Lynggaard is a classic gentleman, who prefers classic gentleman’s jewellery. His sculptural cuf ink designs are beautiful gifts for quality-conscious men of all ages.   Men’s Collection is available with retailers and in agship store worldwide from May 2020.

Laauw create masks and support Dutch hospitals

Accessories We are aware of the scarcity of face masks in Dutch hospitals, so – because every contribution has been nicely included – they donated 1,000 facial masks to the Jeroen Bosch Hospital in Den Bosch. At the time of writing, these masks are produced by their supplier. In addition, Meike, their junior designer who works at their design studio (in their flagship store) in Den Bosch, has time to spare. The sales floor is very quiet, which makes Meike a bit restless. In the time that she now had to spare, she got creative. And there, of course related to these times, a design for a face mask originated. A good example that this virus blocks and hurts a lot, but that creativity cannot be stopped.     Comment from the founders: This damn virus, it affects all of us. We need to stay indoors as much as possible – just as spring is arriving -, social contacts are suspended until we-have-no-clue-when and the virus is spreading, making people in the care sector working overtime.  Right now our store is empty, appointments are being rescheduled and various productions have been stopped. We can’t and shouldn’t do anything, but we found out that we just can’t sit still. So we started looking for what we can do. For ourselves, for our environment and just in general in this whole situation, to make something positive out of it.    For more visit their website: Laauw.com We are aware of the scarcity of face masks in Dutch hospitals, so – because every contribution has been nicely included – they donated 1,000 facial masks to the Jeroen Bosch Hospital in Den Bosch.

In conversation with Ferry Corsten

In conversation with Ferry Corsten

Music   Hailing from Rotterdam, Ferry Corsten’s illustrious career is exemplified by a passion for music that began as a hobby and spiralled into a full-blown profession, as he continues to push the boundaries of trance music, rising 15 places to #59 in last year’s DJ Mag Top 100 poll. While synonymous with dance music and songs primed for the dancefloor, Ferry has always harboured a love for the more stripped back forms of sound, be it cinematic, orchestral or ambient, highlighted by him completing his first film score for David Gleeson’s 2018 thriller ‘Don’t Go’, which was released as a soundtrack early last year. Ferry continues to explore the more ambient side of his creativity with a new album under his FERR alias, ‘As Above So Below’, which was released last Friday, and sees Ferry reveal some of his most personal work to date, coming at a perfect time when people around the world are looking for ways to keep their cool.  Alongside hit global exploits as a DJ, chart scaling achievements in the studio, Ferry continues to have a day-to-day involvement in his Flashover Recording simprint, who recently announced they will be partnering with Armada Music for future releases. Launched back in 2005, Ferry’s label enables him to scour the world for fresh talent and release music by cutting-edge producers, giving them a voice on the world stage, alongside hosting his own label parties everywhere from Amsterdam Dance Event to Miami Music Week.   We had the opportunity to speak with Ferry about his change in direction, the inspiration behind the album, and the current situation the world is facing.   Could you tell us more about your new ‘As Above So Below’ album that is released this week? It’s a far cry from your previous output, what was the reasoning behind this change in direction? I’ve always had a big passion for this type of music. I love to listen to it myself when I want to disconnect from the usual music productions. Sometimes, I find myself having an hour here and there that I can use to just create other music than the usual thing. I noticed at some point that I had accumulated a lot of tracks that I had been making over time and thought of sharing this with the rest of the world.    What did you want to achieve with this new album? Was there a creative vision that you wanted to realise or was it a completely blank canvas? It was a completely blank canvas. I specifically told myself not to switch back into auto pilot…meaning the formulated, structure way of producing that I do for a lot of my dance stuff. This album was completely free reign and literally going with the flow.     After so many years in the industry, what keeps you motivated? I think I’ve managed to remain for so many years in this industry because I really love what I do. I am one of the very lucky people in this world to have been able to make my hobby into a fully-fledged career. I’m also very lucky that people enjoy what I produce and play. Without them I would not be able to do what I do. Although it is a dream job, every job has its difficulties and this job is no different than others. You are constantly on the go, always working. You don’t have as much family time as you wish. But knowing as well that there are people that want to hear your music and watch you play definitely keeps me (and my family) motivated.   What is the most exciting part of releasing this new album to the world? The most exciting part is that it is what people never expected from me and seeing their reactions to it.      What is the message you are trying to send with this new album, which feels especially important with the difficult times we are going through at the moment?  Yeah, the timing seems impeccable but of course the release date was planned months before. I could never have foreseen a world that we are in today. The whole motivation behind this album and this music is to tell people that it’s ok to slow down every once in a while. To sit back, relax, zone out, and recharge.   What were your inspirations for the album? Can you name a couple of recommendations for people new to this sound who may want to explore a bit deeper? A good reference is the music you can find in my stillpoint by Ferry Corsten playlist. This playlist features artists that are in this same realm of music, notably Olafur Arnulds, Nils Frahm, Jon Hopkins, to name a few.     How do you find new sources of inspiration and musical discovery to keep your music fresh?   Keeping your music fresh starts with a big imagination. The sky is the limit. I like to listen to different genres that are somewhat close to my original style of music and look for elements that I can bring in to my own genre.     What is next for you after the new album release? I’m currently working on my new Ferry Corsten album. At the minute I’m using the time that I have being locked up during these hard times as an opportunity to work on this!           Hailing from Rotterdam, Ferry Corsten’s illustrious career is exemplified by a passion for music that began as a hobby and spiralled into a full-blown profession, as he continues to push the boundaries of trance music, rising 15 places to #59 in last year’s DJ Mag Top 100 poll.

SNEAKERSNSTUFF x Vault by Vans “VENICE BEACH PACK”

Fashion To celebrate the one-year anniversary of Sneakersnstuff Los Angeles in Venice Beach, we have collaborated with Vault by Vans on two Southern Californian staples, the OG Classic Slip-On LX and the OG Era LX, as an homage to Venice Beach and the culture and history that encompasses it.   This history of Venice Beach is a notorious one, a place where creatives and artists flourished in the 1960s and ’70s, immortalized in the history books of skateboarding forever throughout the ‘80s and coincided with a punk explosion that enveloped the beach and boardwalk into the ’90s. The design of the SNS x Vault by Vans “Venice Beach Pack” is a nod to that time - the late 80’s and 90’s and what skaters, surfers, and punks were wearing.   Both the OG Classic Slip-On LX and the OG Era LX feature a canvas upper with the iconic checkerboard print in bright neon colorways and unique SNSgraphics along the sidewall as Vans has done so iconically over the years. In addition to the OG Vault by Vans Off the Wall logo hit on the heel, design details revere to orginal Vans models such as a slim fitted shape utilizing the original period correct upper patterns. Further, we see the iconic outsole undercut with hand-tooled details and tightly wrapped rubberized textile foxing only seen on vintage Vans, long-lasting thick outsole, original Vans sticky rubber, and sidewall sealing wipe. The OG build is as always, original design, original quality, and crafted the original way.

Cosy At Home with American Vintage

Fashion For spring/summer 2020, American Vintage dreams up a retro sportswear wardrobe for a casual silhouette. Skin bares itself. Cuts are made for movement. Style stops taking itself too seriously. In short, the perfect attitude for summer.   Sporty details, cool spirit It’s all in the details. Subtlety over obviousness. The feel of waffled cotton. The suppleness of thick fleece, which falls perfectly, as if weighted. The cocooning hood of a hoodie. Elasticated ribbing that cinches oversized cuts at the wrists and waist and encircles the necks. A sporty 80s spirit adapts to daily life in the city with shorts worn high on the thighs, the reassuring texture of terry cloth or the worn, vintage effect of cotton canvas. A loose two-tone T-shirt contrasts tones of blue, grey or pink with the sunny streets of a Southern city, filled with lazy summer charm. Applied on second-skin pieces, a flocked trim with the “AMV Camp” logotype slides over the fabrics for shirts that show off retro insignia, like American school or summer camp uniforms.   Developed with natural materials, such as smooth, ribbed or waffled cotton, this wardrobe lets the body move and the skin breathe freely. While more technical fabrics, such as polar fleece, a flowing windbreaker or taffeta, reinvent the utilitarian look, ready to stand up to the chillier moments of summer. Inspired by sport but cut for the city, these pieces become the urban outfits of new-generation fashion.   for the collection visit AmericanVintage-Store.com For spring/summer 2020, American Vintage dreams up a retro sportswear wardrobe for a casual silhouette.

The Breitling  launches Top Time Limited Edition

The Breitling launches Top Time Limited Edition

Watches When the original Breitling Top Time was launched in the 1960's, it was a watch with a clear mission. Willy Breitling announced that his brand’s new watches were “particularly suited to the needs of the young and active professionals. We are designing a superb range of ultramodern chronographs, led by a completely new model, the Top Time.” The sports watch appealed to that demographic but also attracted young women, who were drawn to its bold new lines and its undeniable elegance. And now, Breitling is reintroducing the Top Time, a collectors’ favorite with one of the most recognizable dials in all of watchmaking.   More than half a century after introducing its Top Time watch, Breitling is launching an updated and upgraded model. Like the 1960's model that inspired it, the new Breitling Top Time has an unconventional design that makes a bold style statement. A first glance at the dial, which has long been known to collectors as the Zorro dial, makes it clear that this is a watch that doesn’t take itself too seriously. But that playful face doesn’t disguise the superb chronograph performance, which is pure Breitling.   Breitling CEO Georges Kern commented: “ When it was released more than 50 years ago, it was a watch that appealed to a younger audience committed to enjoying the freedom and the spirit of the 1960's, and, amazingly, after all this time, it continues to stand out. The Top Time is an important but often overlooked part of our heritage, and we know it’s going to resonate with men and women who love this blend of history, design, and great performance.”   Inside the Top Time’s 41-millimeter stainless-steel case is a Breitling Caliber 23 chronograph movement with a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. Its accuracy is confirmed by its status as a COSC-certi ed chronometer. The red hour and minute hands as well as the dot markers for each hour are coated with Super-LumiNova, a luminescent material that ensures legibility in all lighting conditions. Along with the central hour, minute, and chronograph second hands, the dial also features a decimal scale and two subdials – a small second counter at the 9 o’clock position and a 30-minute counter with unique red accents at 3 o’clock. The new Breitling Top Time’s modern retro look is perfectly complemented by its brown nubuck leather strap. This striking watch is limited to 2000 pieces, and its caseback is engraved with “ONE OF 2000.” One of the few features this new chronograph doesn’t have is a Geiger counter, unlike the Top Time handed to James Bond by Q in 1965’s Thunderball. The world’s favorite spy used the watch to avert a nuclear catastrophe by locating stolen missiles that had been hidden underwater. With 007, of course, style is always essen- tial, and owners of the new Breitling Top Time will have it in abundance. The Breitling Top Time Limited Edition will be the brand’s first watch offered with a blockchain-based digital passport, which confirms the authenticity and ownership of the watch with a single click. Owners can access the watch’s digital passport at any time and transfer ownership – if they choose to do so with a simple blockchain transaction. Offered in cooperation with Arianee, the digital passport will also complement Breitling’s innovative digital warranty program by offering the absolute security that can only be provided by a blockchain system. This cutting-edge technology, which makes it possible for customers to engage with the brand anonymously, allows Breitling to add new online services ranging from advanced clienteling to a revolutionary care program. The Breitling Top Time is scheduled for launch on Breitling’s e-commerce channel in March 2020 and will be available upon request from the brand’s global retail network at a later date.   Adding to the excitement surrounding the release of the new Top Time, a highly regarded London based street artist is designing a mural featuring the familiar Zorro dial. It can be seen on the corner of Redchurch Street and Ebor Street in the trendy Shoreditch area of East London from March 25 until May 20, 2020. The new Breitling Top Time: it’s hard to imagine a better way to express your personal style than with a truly great chronograph that will never be confused with any other watch! When the original Breitling Top Time was launched in the 1960's, it was a watch with a clear mission. Willy Breitling announced that his brand’s new watches were “particularly suited to the needs of the young and active professionals. We are designing a superb range of ultramodern chronographs, led by a completely new model, the Top Time.” The sports watch appealed to that demographic but also attracted young women, who were drawn to its bold new lines and its undeniable elegance. And now, Breitling is reintroducing the Top Time, a collectors’ favorite with one of the most recognizable dials in all of watchmaking.   More than half a century after introducing its Top Time watch, Breitling is launching an updated and upgraded model. Like the 1960's model that inspired it, the new Breitling Top Time has an unconventional design that makes a bold style statement. A first glance at the dial, which has long been known to collectors as the Zorro dial, makes it clear that this is a watch that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
