VERSACE PRESENTS THE FALL & WINTER 2021 COLLECTION

Fashion Week “I have realized that this is the future, the new way of communicating collections.  Models are like actors, they bring the designs to life, just like when a performer portrays a character. During the filming of this show I saw how important it is to give the models time to “feel” the clothes they wear on the runway. Despite living in a digital era of immediacy, taking this time is crucial to form a genuine connection. This is what the present and future look like to me.”  - Donatella Versace      CONTEMPORARY CODES   The iconic Greca motif is reinvented for Fall-Winter 2021 as a dynamic and immersive 3D maze that feels like you can step right into it. The new Versace La Greca code features the Greek Key along with the Versace logo in various sizes and color combinations. The geometric pattern has sharp angles, clean lines and a strong palette that represents power and self-confidence.     SMALL SILHOUETTES    In womenswear the silhouettes are reduced in volume with rounded shoulders, cinched waists and A-line skirts. The trousers are cropped and there’s a cleanness that lets La Greca do the talking. The new code features on modern daywear, signature metal mesh dresses, sensual eveningwear, bold sheepskin outerwear and is embroidered on denim. Harnesses are created that cross the chest like armor and add sharp detail through embellishment and contrasting shades.       INTIMATE LINES     Men’s cuts are slim and refined with a twist. The tailoring hugs the body with sensual intimacy. La Greca features in different ways from all-over jacquard suits sometimes mixed with lurex thread, to small rubber patches on the chest like soccer badges. The fabrics jolt from shiny vinyl to matte wool.      REBEL SPIRIT    FW21 also introduces a graffiti Medusa smiley that champions the brand’s sense of humor and rebellious character. Considered a symbol of celebration, freedom and dancefloor communities, it is framed by La Greca borders and appears on foulards, men’s outerwear and women’s shirts.      MODULAR BAGS    La Greca bags come with logo hardware and they can be customized with smaller clip-on accessories and extra pockets for a look that feels very personal to the wearer. Bold shades clash on smaller bags and mix-and-match shoulder straps. The 3D Greca also appears on oversized earrings, hair pins, jewelry and confident buckles.   “I have realized that this is the future, the new way of communicating collections.  Models are like actors, they bring the designs to life, just like when a performer portrays a character.

GUCCI ANNOUNCES THE OPENING OF ITS NEW AMSTERDAM STORE

GUCCI ANNOUNCES THE OPENING OF ITS NEW AMSTERDAM STORE

Fashion Gucci is pleased to announce the opening of its new store in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The store spans over 506 square meters across three floors and houses a full array of Gucci’s products, from men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, to handbags, luggage, small leather goods, shoes, jewelry and watches, silks and eyewear.     With a look that invites customers to feel welcome and relaxed, the interior design is discreet. Soft elements like velvet chairs and leather settees, as well as vintage dark wood display furniture and the elegant wooden staircase, offset harder surfaces and industrial elements, such as rivets. Contemporary luxury is suggested not only by the employment of beautiful and idiosyncratic materials, but also through a determinedly spare use of space. In keeping with the elegant and contemporary eclecticism that characterises Gucci’s collections, the store sees the combination of traditional and modern, industrial and romantic. The concept effortlessly complements the product-offer from the House.     Contrasting merchandising elements represent different design codes of the House, and these combine to create curiosity, inviting customers to feel like they are constantly discovering new aspects of the store. Each Gucci boutique is therefore a “cabinet of curiosities”, created to delight and inspire.     The mood within the store is one of discretion, where understated drama is created by the surprising and unexpected combination of materials. Juxtaposition of this sort, where opposites forge a new connection, is repeated ubiquitously: technical, mechanical display contrast with the softness of the rich fabrics that adorn the rooms; wooden tables with velvet tops and the wood flooring in natural oak, hand-painted by Italian artisans, complement the sage-green, old rose and cipria pink velvet-upholstered boiserie. Throughout the store, one finds sumptuous seats, while vintage rugs are layered over each other for a textured effect. The result is a space that entices, surprises and feels personal to Gucci.     Store Name: Gucci Amsterdam Location: P.C.

Louis Vuitton Men’s Collection by Virgil Abloh Pre-Fall 2021

Louis Vuitton Men’s Collection by Virgil Abloh Pre-Fall 2021

Men Conformity: the sociological endeavour of a person or a community to blend in or integrate with a societal culture to which they ought, desire or need to belong. Often, a concept rooted in luxury and privilege.     Periods of progress are followed by consolidation: a new normality. For the Pre-Fall 2021 Men’s Collection, Louis Vuittoninvestigates the mundane dress codes of an establishment in evolution. Banal by virtue, it is a traditional sartorial wardrobe inherited by some and aspirational to others. In his ongoing transformation of elitist codes into symbols of inclusivity, Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh studies the luxury of normalcy – the state of being normal – and what conforming to it means in a post-2020 society. Underpinning old codes with new values, the collection portrays the comfort of a progressive conventionality inclusive to all: the mundane wardrobe re-appropriated for a new world order.   Back-to-work tailoring expressed in a boxy silhouette nods at a generational association with conformity. The conventional staple pieces of the men’s wardrobe are approached with riotous celebration: suits daubed in tie-dye galaxy monogram print, a caban restructured with an asymmetrical monogram leather panel, and a peacoat embossed with a techy Louis Vuitton logo along the sleeve. New takes on suits materialise with hooded or zipped jackets or in all-denim, while the decorative codes of eveningwear are evoked through the mid-layer. In casualwear, the bastions of the conventional wardrobe – the blouson, the cardigan, the shirt – are conveyed in a Damier salt print, fading and distorting the classic motif.   “Separate fashion from ction” and “Don’t let your day job de ne you” – archive quotes from the Vocabulary according to Virgil Ablohpublished seasonally as part of his Louis Vuitton practice – adorn garments throughout the collection. They appear as intarsia on a sweater, debossed on a leather blouson, and in outerwear on a unique fabric where the words become visible when the garment comes in contact with rain. Skater hats and caps – in leather, python or denim – and scarves are interpreted in the galaxy and Damier salt prints. In jewellery, the signature chain link pieces magnify in size and expand with opal nishes alongside existing metal textures. Next to Cuban chains, the collection introduces Around the World necklaces and bracelets with globe and trunk pendants.   Shoes twist the familiar in a clog derby in black leather, and buckled mules in black or monogram leather. The signatureLouis Vuitton sneaker appears in a yellow and green contrast style. Bags interpret the Damier salt print on the classic coated canvas in indigo with black leather trims, and in a stone-coloured version with tonal trimming. The collection introduces a new sling bag shape with signature metal rivets and leather corners, while a new messenger bag materialises in Macassar monogram with a utilitarian rubber base forged in pop-coloured LV letters. Finally, a series of leather bags in tonal black, animating some of the house’s most classic shapes.     Conformity: the sociological endeavour of a person or a community to blend in or integrate with a societal culture to which they ought, desire or need to belong.

KATE MOSS AGENCY LAUNCHES LIMITED-EDITION BUTTERFLY COLLECTION IN SUPPORT OF SAVE THE CHILDREN

Fashion Kate Moss Agency announces its second range from KMA Studio, The Butterfly Collection, in partnership with Save the Children. The limited-edition collection launches on February 25th and includes a t-shirt and hoodie featuring an abstract butterfly print as captured by wildlife photographer Finlay Pitt.      The 100 per cent organic cotton t-shirts and hoodies, priced at £45 and £90 respectively, were inspired by Kate’s fascination of butterflies and her belief in the Butterfly Effect, whereby seemingly minor events can have large and significant consequences.      Kate Moss said: “Having recently launched KMA Studio the team and I wanted to create more sustainable merchandise which also benefits others. Inspired by the ‘Butterfly Effect’ theory of small change having a big effect and my love of butterflies, we designed this custom, abstract print. Partnering with Save The Children on a limited run of hoodies and t-shirts means we can donate to a greater cause through our small-scale project.”     KMA Studio will be donating £5 from each item sold to Save the Children to ensure that disadvantaged children around the world can stay safe and healthy to keep learning. Save the Children works in more than 100 countries, including the UK, to help young people reach their full potential and build a better future.     Caroline Whatley, Chair of Global Partnerships at Save the Children said: “We’re so excited to be partnering with KMA Studio on this beautiful limited-edition collection. Purchasing a t-shirt or hoodie from the range will mean we’re able to raise money to help change the lives of children around the world. As the Coronavirus crisis takes its toll on our most vulnerable children both here in the UK and globally, partnerships like this are more important than ever.”   The blue-green abstract print derives from photographer Finlay Pitt’s microscopic image of a butterfly wing which he captured as part of a recent photography project at university.      Finlay Pitt, photographer and conservationist, said: “I am incredibly proud to be involved in this collection for KMA Studio and Save the Children. Since I was five years old, I’ve dreamt of being a wildlife photographer. More recently I’ve been dedicating my photography to conservation work and I hope this partnership can both shed light and alleviate some of the struggles children face around the world.”      All KMA Studio products are ethically sourced and made from 100 per cent organic cotton certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard. Working closely with a factory in Tiruppur, India, to source the raw materials, KMA Studio have produced a small collection with a focus on sustainability and minimising environmental impact at all stages.       Products will be sent in recyclable packaging; swing tags have been made from recycled waste material collected during production and KMA Studio have taken all available steps to ensure the highest ethical standards throughout the process.     All products are available from KMAStudio.com from 25th February.    'Wear & Share' on social media using @SaveChildrenUK @katemossagency  #ButterflySeries Kate Moss Agency announces its second range from KMA Studio, The Butterfly Collection, in partnership with Save the Children.

Giorgio Armani presents men's Autumn/Winter 21/22 Collection

Fashion Week Giorgio Armani has always been fascinated by the psychology of dressing. He explores the nuances and passages in a very natural way. It is no coincidence that his style was immortalised in a film scene showing a man in front of a wardrobe, intent on making a choice. The new collection is just that: a structured wardrobe, a collection of garments that, when updated, span the decades in rapid transitions. They are clothes that each man can wear and mix and match as he wishes, to express and portray himself. There is also a touch of eclecticism in conceiving new volumes and applications: jackets are soft and flowing like shirts, coats are supple and enveloping, sweaters adhere to the body and are punctuated with geometric patterns. The way surfaces are used is also eclectic: geometric patchworks of velvet and wool, or brightly coloured floral patterns make each garment unique. The journey into a world of typically Armanian ease follows a chromatic path that switches between natural hues, deep blues and black, alongside flashes of leather, brightened by velvet. This is the portrait of a self-assured, nonchalant man, who can dispense with a jacket in the evening, wearing only a velvet shirt.

Fashion Week The new collection includes a collaboration with Patrick Cox, the shoe designer behind the iconic Wannabe loafer and a teenage friend of Dean and Dan Caten.     Restyling the Wannabe’s famed square-toe form, first launched in the 90s, the Wanna-D2 comes in different styles: a heeled loafer with a mini platform, the same style in a high boot and thigh boot, and a lower ankle boot version with a chunky heel and a front strap with D hardware.   Bodysuits and dresses embroidered with poetry are paired with sporty details, color-blocked nylon wide legged pants with elasticated ankles and a long tailored jacket, or loose denim pants with paint splatters in a camouflage pattern. Outdoorsy tweed checks and wallpaper florals in earthy tones take form in retro shapes.     Dressing for the outdoors—the Canadian woods—and the city has a new uniform in Dsquared2’s Fall Winter 2021 men’s collection. The idea is expressed in a key look of an oversized coat—a mashup of different styles and completed with a built-in check shirt—wide legged pants and thick soled moccasins styled on Patrick Cox’s iconic Wannabe design from the 90s in a special collaboration for the collection.      Starry nights in lit-up cities inspire glamorous feminine detailing on masculine pieces. A cowboy shirt has sequin embellishments, a chain fringe details a blazer.  The new collection includes a collaboration with Patrick Cox, the shoe designer behind the iconic Wannabe loafer and a teenage friend of Dean and Dan Caten.     Restyling the Wannabe’s famed square-toe form, first launched in the 90s, the Wanna-D2 comes in different styles: a heeled loafer with a mini platform, the same style in a high boot and thigh boot, and a lower ankle boot version with a chunky heel and a front strap with D hardware.   Bodysuits and dresses embroidered with poetry are paired with sporty details, color-blocked nylon wide legged pants with elasticated ankles and a long tailored jacket, or loose denim pants with paint splatters in a camouflage pattern.

BURBERRY REVEALS ITS SPRING/SUMMER 2021 CAMPAIGN

Fashion ‘For the Spring/Summer 2021 show, I wanted to create this incredible experience bringing together fashion, art, music, technology, live performance and to then explore the dialogue they have with each other. I have always been inspired by the concept of duality, so it was amazing to see the unique energy and dynamic tension that was found in the fusion of all these worlds. This campaign is all about continuing that examination of different perspectives, contrasting the rawness of the internal environment with the ever-blooming nature of the outdoors.’ Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer     Today, Burberry reveals its Spring/Summer 2021 campaign, bringing together contrasting worlds in an exploration of differingperspectives and viewpoints.     Photographed by Juergen Teller, the campaign presents a dichotomy between images: two different realms, indoors and outdoors, nature and fashion. Images captured within the scenography of the Spring/Summer 2021 show, with models immersed in nature, are juxtaposed with classical raw studio shots. Through these opposing lenses, the collection is presented from different viewpoints, transforming with the environment around them. Playing upon the overarching theme of the collection, rooted in a modern love story between a mermaid and a shark, the Spring/Summer 2021 campaign continues to expand on one of Burberry’s signature house codes: duality – constantly exploring the fusion of romanticism with innovation, form with function and past with future.     The Spring/Summer 2021 collection remasters the iconic emblems and hallmarks of the luxury fashion house – its character, nature and unique British DNA – with a modern free energy. A spirit of rebellion re-energising tradition. Natural canvas, denim and industrial, rubberised fabrications combine with delicate chiffon and crystal embroideries – streetwear meets classic.     Alongside Juergen Teller, Riccardo gathered a team of iconic talent including stylist Katy England, Burberry Global Beauty Director Isamaya Ffrench and hair stylist Gary Gill. The cast includes models He Cong, Tyler Forbes, Khali Ghani, Kayako Higuchi, Tashi Kwaiye, Reece Nelson, Yiorgos Paraskevas, Aylah Peterson, Claus Royo, Liv Walter, Anok Yai. ‘For the Spring/Summer 2021 show, I wanted to create this incredible experience bringing together fashion, art, music, technology, live performance and to then explore the dialogue they have with each other.

Givenchy presents the CUT-OUT bag

Accessories Givenchy presents the Cut-Out, a forward-looking unisex handbag that distills the essence of Creative Director Matthew M. Williams’ vision for the House.     Distinctive for its sculptural, graphic lines, the Cut-Out nods to the Givenchy archives and ethos, notably the House’s V-shaped signature, here deftly deconstructed and counterbalanced by a squared base and a supple shoulder strap with striking silver embellishments. Like the latest reinterpretation of the Antigona, the Cut-Out is made of sophisticated, Box-finish leather. Various treatments span discreet matte or embossed textures evoking exotic scales with matte, metallic or vintage croc-effect finishes. Its modern allure is defined by the designer’s flair for innovative hardware signatures, as evidenced by the bold, cubic 4G chain, and the precedence of craft-driven flourishes, for example on a black leather version that is fully embellished with small silver eyelets that have been placed by hand. The Cut-Out is available in Small with or without the sinuous 4G chain, and in an ample Large size that makes a distinctive, fashion-forward statement. Colors include classic beige, tan or black, as well as directional shades of baby pink, purple and red. Prices: from 990€ to 1,390€ for the small style; 1,990€ for the large.     The Cut-Out will drop starting on February 26th, 2021, in Givenchy stores worldwide and on givenchy.com.
