Maison Valentino confirms Zendaya as the protagonist of the new Valentino Roman Palazzo Fall 21 campaign

Fashion “Throughout an aesthetic choice, it is possible to represent a whole identity. This is the power of fashion and this is the power of human beings”. Pierpaolo Piccioli   Zendaya is the protagonist of the new campaigns for Valentino, David Sims the photographer of this narration, shooting her with his incomparable approach at the Palace Theatre in Los Angeles.   The actress has the capacity to express all the values of the brand through a single shot, turning a Valentino creation into something extraordinary. She enters the values of equality and inclusivity that Pierpaolo Piccioli and the Maison stand for, but also conveys a contemporary romanticism.   The Valentino Roman Palazzo advertising campaign continues the narrative of the Creative Director, which shot the collection in Rome, in an unexpected place in which grandeur has given way to intimacy. A delabré Palazzo with no decorations or objects. An empty space where the atmosphere became empathetic thanks to a diverse humanity, a diverse casting.   Sims, known for pushing the boundaries of fashion photography, has captured a raw and radical theatrical act in Los Angeles. Zendaya seated at the centre of the stage in a set that recalls the classical portraiture of the sound stage theatre: the point of view has changed. It is no longer a photography set, but a proper theatre. The atmosphere merges with the gestures of the actress. Time stops behind closed doors. The ability to make a theatrical moment something authorial.   Pierpaolo Piccioli continues his conscious and progressive way of making culture. The punk gesture that reopens and takes possession of the theatre, its space, and its language. The exploration, at the same time intimate and provocative, an empty space that for a moment becomes for all.   The identity of Valentino today materializes with a clear and incisive sign: both sensual and romantic, nourished by memories but not nostalgic. An identity that reflects in a new generation.     #ValentinoRomanPalazzo #RockstudAlcoveValentinoGaravani #ValentinoDivas “Throughout an aesthetic choice, it is possible to represent a whole identity.

CHANEL proudly reveals the new face of J12 actress Margot Robbie

Watches Everything has always been about seconds for a House created by a woman who knew how to follow her instincts. The instinct of the moment when everything is decided.     Whether it is the longest second of a lifetime on the day of an important decision, or preparing a soft-boiled egg with perfect culinary precision, catching an airplane or missing a taxi, our existence is a succession of milestones that are of no coincidence.     The J12 is the watch for these milestones, and the perfect accompaniment for every second. In this campaign for the most iconic CHANEL watch, nine iconic women share their personal experiences about a second that changed their lives.     Everything is a story of seconds for a woman who is in touch with her life and with this intimate timepiece that can shape destiny in a few seconds. The J12 is the watch for this woman.     In 2021, Margot Robbie joins the faces of the iconic CHANEL J12 watch campaign initiated in 2019.     “It feels incredibly special to be alongside such inspiring women in this campaign. Embodying the J12 watch to me is acknowledging and appreciating time.“     #J12 #ItsAllAboutSeconds #CHANELWatches Everything has always been about seconds for a House created by a woman who knew how to follow her instincts.

The long awaited Heron Preston for Calvin Klein is here with a major campaign shot by Renell Medrano

The long awaited Heron Preston for Calvin Klein is here with a major campaign shot by Renell Medrano

Fashion Through a shared vision, Heron Preston and Calvin Klein created a collection for real people. Preston came in as a creative consultant, first examining what he considered the brand’s most necessary and iconic pieces: the underwear, the white shirt, and expanded from there, remaining firmly within the guardrails of what is essential - no more, no less.     Preston says, “This goes beyond just a normal collaboration. I call it a collaboration 2.0., as the work we did, and how we did it, goes beyond just product design and placement. We tried to reshape and develop a new business language, while still fully embracing and respecting Calvin Klein’s culture, experience and history.”     “Working with Heron was such a perfect place to start. He sits at the crossroads of culture, interconnecting various disciplines - threading ways between youth and creativity. His modern way of thinking, and his approach to design and sustainability are very much aligned to the Calvin Klein brand. Heron brought a level of integrity to this collaboration, one that goes beyond the hype and actually wants to change from the inside out and influence the product,” says Jordan.       ABOUT THE NEW COLLECTION:     This collection serves as a minimalist canvas for creative exploration. The clothes come alive when worn by different people. It is a collection of pieces which are essential, but not generic. It is an elevation of baseline pieces that can be incorporated into any style. True to both the Calvin Klein brand DNA and Preston’s personal approach to design, the collection carries a unisex approach, Preston’s storytelling around essentials focuses on the pursuit of simplicity, revisiting styles and obsessing over details, always incorporating something new. A plain white t-shirt gets gussets under the armpits. Pieces are finished with raised ribbing and stitching that almost looks 3D. There is a special interior and exterior branding element to this collection. It is all about using familiar things in unfamiliar.     "The collection is so clean and sharp yet with amazing shapes and variety of cool colors such as ocean blue, orange, red and of course white, beige, grey etc. Definitely plenty of must-have pieces in the collection." We especially love that the collection was developed with close attention to environmental consciousness and more sustainable practices, a critical element to both Preston and Calvin Klein. All options were carefully considered: raw denim is used to save water, organic and recycled cotton are heavily featured, and packaging is plastic- free.        ABOUT THE BEAUTIFUL CAMPAIGN:      The campaign celebrates the raw and youthful spirit at the core of Calvin Klein’s brand identity and globally-recognized aesthetic. It is about capturing personality in natural moments and showcasing the lived experience of the clothing. The campaign takes an organic approach and features a diverse cast from Preston’s close circle and people who inspire him. From icons such as Nas and Stevie Williams to newcomers Jordan Alexander and Sabrina Fuentes, Calvin Klein continues its tradition of both seeking out emerging talent and fresh faces, to showcasing legendary figures reverberating the brand’s aesthetic and cultural attitude.       Explore more abut the new collection which is now available and campaign here:  https://www.calvinklein.nl   Through a shared vision, Heron Preston and Calvin Klein created a collection for real people.

LACOSTE PRESENTS THE NEW CAMPAIGN "CROCODILES PLAY COLLECTIVE"

LACOSTE PRESENTS THE NEW CAMPAIGN "CROCODILES PLAY COLLECTIVE"

Fashion Moving freely and connecting different cultures are the special powers of the crocodile, the iconic emblem of the Lacoste brand. Since 1933, it has transcended time, styles and genres. It has no borders. In continuous movement, it reinvents itself in collaboration with those who wear it, capable of embracing all nuances, regardless of the era. Its playground has no limits, it is open to all and welcomes every type of character. The result is an infinite palette of encounters which find harmony in their contrasts. It celebrates the beauty of the game of life when our differences come together creatively.     This is the story that Lacoste wants to share. To go further, together. Our differences, once united, make us richer and stronger. The elegance of the collective and life.     THE POLO SHIRT AS COMMON DENOMINATOR     It is time to embrace and celebrate the differences that bring us together. We do this here with a cast of seven passionate, talented creatives. They wear polo shirts with a sense of elegance that is their own. They are captured in their cities, in the surroundings that inspire them daily. Five cities (Paris, New York, Berlin, Los Angeles, London) and seven photographers, to conjure multiple points of view.   A classic monotone or in full color, fitted or oversized, new or vintage, store bought or passed down through generations, the Lacoste polo shirt becomes the common denominator of those who share the values of the crocodile. This emblematic object becomes a platform of expression that allows you to tell your story.       SEVEN AMBASSADORS, SEVEN PHOTOGRAPHERS, ONE STORY     This spring, Lacoste is unveiling a campaign representative of the diversity that has always epitomized the brand. It is not one single ambassador, but seven creative people from all over the world, who are shaping the image of the brand. A$AP Nast, Peggy Gou, Evan Mock, Louise Bourgoin, Sonny Hall, Mélanie Thierry and Salif Gueye. Shot in their home cities, alongside their close circles of friends and family, by a creative team of their own choice, collectively personifying the crocodile in their own way. A way to celebrate the mythical agility of the Lacoste polo shirt, but also to underline the unifying and collective power of Lacoste.     In Los Angeles, rapper and Lacoste fan A$AP Nast invites his friends DJAVAN and Cory before the lens of photographer Melodie McDaniel. Tattooed on his chest or embroidered on his polo shirts, the performer "always carries the spirit of the crocodile.”     Over in Berlin, DJ and entrepreneur Peggy Gou is immortalized by Vitali Gelwich, alongside her “closest friends, the family we choose.”     In New York, skater, actor and model Evan Mock brings together his brother, sister and a skateboarder friend for an intimate shoot with photographer Stef Mitchell. Four people "ambitious and always ready to pursue their dreams.”     Crossing over to the British capital, Elliot James Kennedy immortalizes the young poetSonny Hall and his entourage in a typical London atmosphere. For him, to be collective is to feel "connected.”     Whilst in Paris, the historical home of Lacoste, French actresses Louise Bourgoinand Mélanie Thierry are photographed with their loved ones by Quentin de Briey and Joshua Woods respectively. Salif Gueye, true to himself, dances in the streets of the French capital with three of his comrade dancers, before the lens of Ilyes Griyeb. For him, his collective is his "family.”     Seven faces, five cities, seven photographers ... for one story only: their own.

Louis Vuitton presents the Pre-Fall 2021 collection by Nicolas Ghesquière

Fashion Filling up on Vuittamins is the upbeat, optimistic proposition of the new Pre-Fall 2021 collection. A heightened practical sophis-tication. Through three main stylistic pillars, Nicolas Ghesquière, Artistic Director of Women’s Collections, draws upon his major design angles since arriving at the House, visions which symbol- ise the nature of the LOUIS VUITTON woman.     From tech romanticism to energetic sportswear and rediscovered essentials.     Tech Romanticism: An opulence in which the softness of mate- rials and the delicacy of embroideries mix with an urban attitude, recalling personal memories. Energetic Sportswear: Where colours clash and reinvent chromatic duos. Blue/Bordeaux, Red / Violet, Lemon / Lime... Rediscovering Essentials: An update of House Icons, reconquering great classics.     Stacy Martin is the ambassador of the Pre-Fall 2021 collection. Photographed by Nicolas Ghesquière, she is the heroine in a newtake on the Nouvelle Vague.     “Stacy has innate elegance and an inspiring personality. I have a lot of respect for her career path, her bold choices and the roles she takes on. I very much enjoyed photographing Stacy.
