Moose Knuckles SS21 "Arise" Campaign

Moose Knuckles SS21 "Arise" Campaign

Fashion After a long, stagnant winter, luxury outerwear brand Moose Knuckles takes a moment to exhale as it extends a warm welcome to spring with its SS21 campaign aptly titled ARISE.     For almost a year, life on earth has come to a crashing standstill. As the mercury fell, options evaporated, and the realities of our "new normal" set in. With nowhere to go and nothing to do, hundreds of thousands put their lives on pause. Things got bleak, but a brighter day has finally arrived. Survival is no longer enough. Press play, get up, and start living.     "We saw this as a huge opportunity to let our consumer know we’re paying attention. Weknow they've been through the wringer. We went through it too. Our message to them isthere’s a light at the end of the tunnel." - Dominique Lagleva, Global Marketing Director.     To Moose Knuckles, SS21 represents a long-awaited breath of fresh air. One last moment to unwind before the world gets back up to speed. It's a homecoming marking the return of good weather, good company (outdoors and socially distanced of course), and good vibes.     Photographer Hugo Comte's masterfully arranged composition accentuates each subject's individuality without undermining the group dynamic. Each shot a reminder of the balance between our shared humanity and the diversity that makes the world so interesting.     "I wanted to express the symbiotic nature of individuality. The idea that everyone can be unique without letting their differences divide them." Hugo Comte, Photographer     Stylist Alex Harrington set out to illustrate the shifted perspectives developed by the onslaught of idle time that was 2020. Adroitly employing the collection's distinct silhouette and bold pops of color with unique yet purposeful layering and a wardrobe that reflects the creativity and vibrance of someone fresh off a year spent in hibernation.     "We put together an all-star team to help bring this concept to life. And everyone left their mark. Nothing feels better than seeing an idea evolve as the creative baton was passed from hand to hand. I couldn't be any happier with the way things turned out." - Brody Baker, Creative Director     As always, Moose Knuckles delivers a versatile collection of comfortable sportswear and transitional outerwear, all designed to promote freedom from the elements. The season also debuts Pack Your Moose, a range of unstoppable rainwear that takes a new approach to solve spring's unpredictable weather. If you've got a questionable meteorologist, this is the collection for you. On top of the unlined recycled nylon shells, bonded seams, and recycled hardware that provide our signature Moose Knuckles protection, each coat features a packable design and fastening system so you'll never get caught unprepared for the rain again.     The campaign launches Feb.23 2021 and will be available for purchase at Moose Knuckles stores, mooseknucklescanada.com, and luxury retailers worldwide.

DIOR presents the new campaign for Spring & Summer

Fashion Symbols of a committed reflection on fashion’s origins and the significance of the cut, Spring-Summer 2021 ready-to-wear looks by Maria Grazia Chiuri are revealed in a series of striking photographs. Celebrating excellence in savoir-faire and creation in all its forms – from Virginia Woolf’s feminist essays to militant collages by Lucia Marcucci that enhanced the staging of the show –, the collection is captured in a campaign brimming with the unique power of painting. Inspired by Caravaggio’s mastery of chiaroscuro, these photos highlight silhouettes with an almost sacred aura of mystery, like icons in a painting, punctuated with shimmering shades of blue, red and gold. Captured by the photographer Elina Kechicheva, these images sublimate Dior codes reinvented with a new language, combining precious embroideries with paisley motifs and floral designs that blossom on dresses and trousers, as well as the essential Dior BookTote. Light, fluid pieces take on the deep blue of denim, while the revisited men's shirt is combined with the Dior Palto jacket, freeing movement with grace and elegance, alongside the irresistible Dior Caro bag. Virtuoso compositions that reveal and exalt the infinite possibilities of the art of couture.   Symbols of a committed reflection on fashion’s origins and the significance of the cut, Spring-Summer 2021 ready-to-wear looks by Maria Grazia Chiuri are revealed in a series of striking photographs.

 Scotch & Soda presents the Summer collection

Scotch & Soda presents the Summer collection

Fashion   A free-spirited mood defines the Scotch & Soda Summer 2021 collection, inspired by Simone Melchior, the 1950s sea explorer who challenged expectations of her gender and time to become the world’s first female scuba diver and a pioneer of marine conservation.     Drawing on her colourful life, the collection heroes an individual and personal approach to dressing built on an eclectic blend of colours, prints and classics.     Statement marine prints that celebrate Melchior’s love for the oceans and sea life abound. Starfish patterns glow in neon shades; graphic anemones pop in bright pinks and greens; metallic tiger shells playfully skew animal prints; while a rustic hand-sketched scene of farmhouses and florals nods to Melchior’s South of France upbringing.     A play on volume is explored in a multiplicity of silhouettes. Sometimes, it’s structured, like the puffed sleeves of a maxi dress; or loose and fluid in the wide leg of cargo trousers. Other times, it’s an unexpected mix of both, such as the fit-and-flow pleated skirt. Cropped shapes, high waists and full A-lines further experiment with proportions in designs that convey a sense of freedom.     An individual and personal approach to dressing playfully subverts the traditional codes of menswear. Summer tailoring is recast in pastels mirroring the colours of the sea with unexpected strength and softness. Highlights for men include a single-breasted blazer and trousers in foam green, and a shorts suit in bright wave blue. Pastels are also contrasted against clean essentials like a pink polo top in textured organic cotton towelling, a vivid dip-dyed ribbed knit, and Bermuda shorts in both surfer and tailored cuts.     The idea of seasonless dressing is key, anchored in modern classics influenced by the utilitarian practicality of marinière uniforms. Trench coats come oversized for layering in spring and ease in summer; likewise, the blazers in longer lengths. Knitted organic cotton- blend vests can be worn over dresses or as standalones, and easy pleated trousers, any time. They’re delivered in a joyful palette which takes on the hues of the Provençal countryside and sea: muted tones of sienna, sand, ecru and French blue, with bursts of orchid pink, marigold, salmon and foam green. Enriched with irreverent details, these epitomise the reinterpreted essentials that form the heart of every Scotch&Soda collection.   A free-spirited mood defines the Scotch & Soda Summer 2021 collection, inspired by Simone Melchior, the 1950s sea explorer who challenged expectations of her gender and time to become the world’s first female scuba diver and a pioneer of marine conservation.     Drawing on her colourful life, the collection heroes an individual and personal approach to dressing built on an eclectic blend of colours, prints and classics.     Statement marine prints that celebrate Melchior’s love for the oceans and sea life abound.

In conversation with Luna Blaise

Fashion We had a delight speaking with the star of hit series "Manifest" Luna Blaise.       You are currently shooting the 3rd season of “Manifest”, can you tell us more about the new season and your role on the show?   Yes, I am currently in NY shooting Manifest S.3.  I play Olive Stone and this season you can expect to meet more passengers from flight 828 along with unexpected twists and turns. Just like me Olive is also coming of age and learning and growing as a young woman. Shooting the show this season during the pandemic has been challenging at times.  Our cast and crew have had to adapt to a new way of filming. Our writers have really worked hard to write episodes that insure our safety when filming and also continue to tell the exciting story of flight 828 and the Stone Family. I really think fans will love season three.         Name some of the recent highlights, like moving to New York City.   I guess my biggest highlight has been moving away from LA without my mom and on my own for the first time living alone as an adult. I am finally adulting and navigating through life as a young woman. It’s exciting, challenging and such a fun journey to be on. I miss my family but I am so inspired to be on this next chapter of my life.        Tell us something your are passionate about and is not on your resume.   I am super passionate about traveling the world. My father is from Scotland and his entire family is there. I have this entire side of my family tree that I have never been able to visit or explore and they all live in Europe. I have plans to travel extensively once it’s safe to travel again.      What is the biggest outtake of 2020 for you, and what was the biggest lesson of the previous year for you?   As a young person that was born and raised in LA I have to admit I really never witnessed social injustice first hand. That all changed when BLM movement gained global media attention. 2020 was a true awakening for me. I educated myself and realized that I had to spread awareness for equality by using my platform and advocating for those who continue to be treated unfairly by systemic racism and bigotry. I attended dozens of protests and continue to learn and educate myself everyday. The biggest lesson I learned in 2020 was that we as people have the power to make a real difference when we work together as one for the greater good for all.      Inclusivity is a key value of our magazine, how do you advocate this shared value in your everyday life?   Thanks to my very liberal and inclusive parents I was raised in a home where love has no labels. I was taught to always be kind, respectful and inclusive to everyone. This mindset is the only option I know. To love, respect others and be kind is the only way I live my life.      Can you remember the moment you first discovered your interest for acting?   For me there has never been a memory where I can’t remember wishing I was I inside the TV or on the big movie screen. When I was very little and we went to the movie theaters,  I would run down to the front of the movie screen as soon as the credits would start to roll and dance in front because I thought that meant I was in the movie too. I think I did that from the age of three to about the age of ten. At home I would always watch the directors commentary, making of the films and behind the scenes. I would also watch movies I loved over and over and over reciting the script as it went along. I have always wanted to act. I just love the craft.      How did your acting career start?   My first real theatrical movie I appeared in was called “Memoria” directed my Nina Ljeti and executive produced by James Franco. I was eleven. I have been working in film and tv ever since.      Who is the voice that has inspired you the most in your personal life?   My parents have inspired me the most in my personal life and also my career. My dad is a filmmaker and writer and my mom is a talent manager and producer. Our family business is in entertainment. From an early age they instilled a strong work ethic in me to work hard, be respectful, keep my head in the game, stay focused and believe in myself. Through their love, support and constant encouragement I am a confident independent thinker that works hard and has fun doing what I love as a career.      Do you believe that your acting can have a positive impact?   I absolutely believe this 100%. My mom has always told me that success has zero meaning if you don’t share it by paying it forward to help others and make a difference.      What is your own definition of beauty?   For me being confident, authentic and true to yourself is the ultimate definition of beauty.      How do you get ready for a red carpet evening?   To set the mood I always have a good vibes playlist ready.    TEAM CREDITS: Photographer: rayscorruptedmind Stylist: Donte McGuine Creative Producer: Sahtia Rivers at the Jeffries editor: Timotej Letonja hair and make-up: Christina Turino We had a delight speaking with the star of hit series "Manifest" Luna Blaise.       You are currently shooting the 3rd season of “Manifest”, can you tell us more about the new season and your role on the show?   Yes, I am currently in NY shooting Manifest S.3.  I play Olive Stone and this season you can expect to meet more passengers from flight 828 along with unexpected twists and turns.

I just love the craft.      How did your acting career start?   My first real theatrical movie I appeared in was called “Memoria” directed my Nina Ljeti and executive produced by James Franco. I was eleven. I have been working in film and tv ever since.      Who is the voice that has inspired you the most in your personal life?   My parents have inspired me the most in my personal life and also my career. My dad is a filmmaker and writer and my mom is a talent manager and producer. Our family business is in entertainment. From an early age they instilled a strong work ethic in me to work hard, be respectful, keep my head in the game, stay focused and believe in myself. Through their love, support and constant encouragement I am a confident independent thinker that works hard and has fun doing what I love as a career.      Do you believe that your acting can have a positive impact?   I absolutely believe this 100%. My mom has always told me that success has zero meaning if you don’t share it by paying it forward to help others and make a difference.      What is your own definition of beauty?   For me being confident, authentic and true to yourself is the ultimate definition of beauty.      How do you get ready for a red carpet evening?   To set the mood I always have a good vibes playlist ready.    TEAM CREDITS: Photographer: rayscorruptedmind Stylist: Donte McGuine Creative Producer: Sahtia Rivers at the Jeffries editor: Timotej Letonja hair and make-up: Christina Turino
