GUCCI releases the new Jackie 1961

Accessories The Gucci Autumn Winter 2020 women’s and men’s fashion shows saw the reintroduction of one of the House’s most famous styles — the Jackie Bag — imbued with new relevance.      First created in 1961, the hobo bag, with its elegant curved shape and distinctive gold hardware closure, became emblematic of the ‘60s and ‘70s jetsetter lifestyle for which the House was known. Most notably, Jackie Kennedy was photographed with the bag so frequently it became known simply as “The Jackie.”   A key member of the Gucci bag family for many decades, the Jackie has been redesigned several times over the years. Its newest incarnation, designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, is the Jackie 1961. A fusion of his fascination with archival codes and contemporary vision, the bag re-emerges to transcend traditional accessories classifications with its non-binary attitude. In fact, Alessandro Michele debuted the Jackie 1961 at HIS men’s Fall Winter 2020 fashion show. Reduced in size and worn by both men and women in diverse looks — tailoring, grunge and clothes with shrunken proportions — the House’s recognizable bag assumed an entirely new character.   Sourcing a vintage Jackie bag from his personal archive, Alessandro Michele proposes three different sizes — medium, small and mini — rendered in a new pared down silhouette. Clean lines bring the focus to the unique piston closure and the rich leather itself. All styles of the Jackie 1961 are available in black and red leather as well as GG Supreme canvas with Web stripe. The small and mini versions feature an extended palette that includes neutral-colored python as well as candy pastel hues of lilac, butter, light blue and soft pink. A longer, removable shoulder strap enhances the new Jackie’s flexible personality and versatile practicality.     The Jackie 1961 joins the Dionysus, the Marmont and the Horsebit 1955 as a Beloved Line of the House.  The Gucci Autumn Winter 2020 women’s and men’s fashion shows saw the reintroduction of one of the House’s most famous styles — the Jackie Bag — imbued with new relevance.      First created in 1961, the hobo bag, with its elegant curved shape and distinctive gold hardware closure, became emblematic of the ‘60s and ‘70s jetsetter lifestyle for which the House was known. Most notably, Jackie Kennedy was photographed with the bag so frequently it became known simply as “The Jackie.”   A key member of the Gucci bag family for many decades, the Jackie has been redesigned several times over the years.

Zalando celebrates its 10th anniversary in the Netherlands in collaboration with Ronald van der Kemp

Fashion Zalando celebrates its tenth anniversary in the Netherlands with a campaign in which Ronald van der Kemp has upcycled ten items from ten Dutch brands to ten 'couture looks'.      Zalando Netherlands is celebrating its 10th anniversary in style and is launching a new campaign in collaboration with ten Dutch brands, including Scotch & Soda, G-Star, WE Fashion and MUD Jeans. Of these ten brands, the ten most iconic items of the past decade were upcycled by the world's first sustainable couture fashion house, RVDK Ronald van der Kemp. The campaign "Story of a Decade" takes a look at fashion from the past, today and the future through ten upcycled couture looks.   Ten years ago, zalando.nl went live, two years after the founding of Zalando in Berlin. What started as a start-up selling shoes online has grown into Europe's largest online fashion and lifestyle platform in just ten years. Today Zalando attracts more than 34 million customers in 17 countries. Ten years ago, the first Dutch brands immediately joined Zalando, including G-Star and Scotch & Soda. Today they are also part of the anniversary campaign "Story of a Decade".   "With this campaign we want to put our partnership with local Dutch brands in the spotlight. After all, we can only achieve our ambition to become the starting point for fashion in Europe in collaboration with our brand and retail partners. With the upcycled looks, we not only want to celebrate the achievements of the past ten years, but also take a look at the future of fashion, of which sustainability is an important part,"said Jacintha De Graaf, Head of Zalando Benelux.   Starting today, Zalando will be putting local Dutch brands in the spotlight for ten days. The following ten Dutch brands are participating: Scotch & Soda, WE Fashion, G-Star, Mud Jeans, Fabienne Chapot, Stieglitz, Kings of Indigo, Goosecraft, ETQ, Denham. For each of these brands, Ronald van der Kemp created 10 couture looks with leftovers from his own previous collections, tailored to ten special Dutch talents. This collaboration resulted in daring and surprising looks with a high couture content.   Ronald van der Kemp, designer: "Zalando is taking important steps in these times of change in which sustainability and diversity are central. We think it is great to be able to contribute to this. For this anniversary, Zalando asked us to create a celebration of personality, diversity, creativity and sustainability. With these looks we try to enlarge the personalities of the influencers and give the clothes a look that suits our times."   Ten local talents wear the couture looks for this campaign and embody a personal vision of fashion in the future. From talented make-up artist Celine Bernaerts, to international model Nella Roz, ballet dancer Christian Yav, ex-top model Linda Spierings, artist and actress Zoe Love Smith and non-binary actor Thorn Vineyard.     We had a great chat with Ronald about the collaboration.   How did the collaboration with Zalando and you start?   Since starting with my label one of our main things was sustainability and diversity in fashion, and now that’s a hot topic. We share these values, thus Zalando approached us to work on this project. And I love the idea of working with existing materials and to make it into something unexpected or new. To make it look different, or give it new content. That’s also why we worked with many different influencers on this project, to inspire people to be proud of who they are and to express themselves.     Where was fashion for you 10 years ago and where do you see it 10 years from now?   I think my biggest thing is that people should be more individual, discovering who they are. I think 10 years ago people were  following someone that might not even be real (think filters etc.), wiping away their own personality in that sense, I hope that now and I think that people are waking up and should not try to hide, come out and embrace it. I think that is what's needed now and people are exploring that more than ever before. Also now you can reach so many people internationally with social media channels, in a way that can be both good and bad, but when people become more individual, that makes the world more exciting, especially in fashion.  I think in fashion we should produce way less and be very creative, we should also find ways to sell fashion and not neccesarily product. You can also sell a dream or an experience, think of perfumes for example. Selling a dream is definitely something bigger than just a product.     See more about the campaign: https://www.zalando.nl/zms/10jaarzalando/   #Zalando10Jaar   Zalando celebrates its tenth anniversary in the Netherlands with a campaign in which Ronald van der Kemp has upcycled ten items from ten Dutch brands to ten 'couture looks'.      Zalando Netherlands is celebrating its 10th anniversary in style and is launching a new campaign in collaboration with ten Dutch brands, including Scotch & Soda, G-Star, WE Fashion and MUD Jeans.

Ninamounah releases the new Fall & Winter campaign

Fashion Meta·mor·pho·sis: a morphological mutation, a time of dramatic change in form and appearance, affecting the core of one’s being. After the completed metamorphosis the transformation becomes visible. From larva to cocoon, the organism finally enters its final stage. A time of sexual maturity.     Shapes and proportions carry both robust stillness and fluid movement, like a metamorphosing lobster. Adapting to its surroundings, our muse represents an infinite of possibilities. Motor references are visible in office wear, a shirt transforms into a high cut bodysuit. Draped looks are liquified into momentous designs.     Traditional shirting and tailoring comes with an exoskeleton of boning, creating dominant silhouettes and strong shoulders. A layered suit and a sleeveless puffer coat reference a protective shell still in the process of growth. Capturing a freedom of spirit, stereotypical staples are reinterpreted with a luxurious punk attitude. A matching shirt and tie combo paired with a hybrid of a pleated skirt and tailored trousers.     A disfigurement of the artisanal tradition. Pinstripe blues and blacks, herringbone browns and green and grey checks come in pure virgin wool and luxurious silks. Reinterpretations of the label’s key pieces, the garments are a natural extension of their archival counterparts. Ninamounah does not aim to reinvent itself drastically every new season, but chooses to slowly grow with time, opting to perfect and reinterpret its own core pieces. Pieces are constructed from deadstock fabrics otherwise destined for destruction or landfill. Our leather is reconstructed from discarded leather designer couches, meaning the skin has had a previous life. A hybrid of past and future.     CAMPAIGN: Taking Metamorphosis to its extreme, drastic proportions take solid shape in the FW20 campaign. Looks fit both men and women, and are moulded and reworked into elongated silhouettes. Tailoring should be like a second skin, growing and maturing together with the body over time, possibly taking on surreal shapes. Suiting is stretched to fit a model larger than life. The cast mostly consisting of family members of the team is captured in a village in the Netherlands, placing emphasis on the intimate and local bonds that are becoming increasingly important as we slow down our pace and look to put the familiar in new contexts.     TEAM: Photography WOODY BOS Art Direction FERDI SIBBEL Beauty DAVID KOPPELAAR   Talents: PUCK (Elvis Models) CHAIMA (Vein Agency) SIDHARTHA (Vein Agency) VALENTINE LOTUS MASUMI MARJOLEIN PIETER FOS     FW20 will be available at selected retailers: LN-CC (Online), Elevastor (Paris), Nolm (Sydney), Shyness (London), Raesthete (Shanghai), Worksout (Seoul), The Elephant (Tokyo), Megusta (Utrecht) and Margreeth Olsthoorn (Rotterdam).

ARKET launches global brand campaign ‘New Nordic Everyday Design’

Fashion Entitled ‘New Nordic Everyday Design’, the campaign is a showcase of ARKET’s signature combination of simplicity, function and colourful playfulness through a series of looks drawn from its permanent collection as well as upcoming seasonal drops.     ‘New Nordic Everyday Design can be read as a simple manifesto for our philosophy and mission but also captures ideas and inspirations which we often return to in our creative work. It represents openness, innovation and a dedication to make even the ordinary things we use in daily life a little more beautiful’, says ARKET Head of Design, Anna Teurnell.     The concept of everyday beauty was one of the starting points for developing ARKET as well as a major influence on the Nordic modernist movement in the mid-20th century. Formulated in 1919 by Swedish art historian Gregor Paulsson, Vackrare vardagsvara (More beautiful everyday things) became the slogan for a new democratic approach that aimed to bridge the worlds of arts, crafts and functional form to produce affordable and widely accessible items for everyday use.     In the Nordic countries, this ambition was associated with a new ideal of beauty which favoured clean lines, a neutral colour palette and solid materials inspired by nature and the northern climate. Above all, it made functionality and durability the basis for good design.

Never let success get to your head, or failure to yourheart.” Joshua also repeats these quotes in a campaign film showing the story behind the collection, shot in London earlier this year.     “The subtlety is what I like about BOSS,” Joshua says. “The navy and the gold, I thinkit’s a great combination. It’s deep, it’s rich, and the navy gives it an elegant feel.” “Never let success get to your head, or failure to your heart” – Anthony Joshua     This Fall/Winter season, BOSS builds on its strong partnership with boxer Anthony Joshua to launch an exclusive, co-created capsule collection of easy-wear pieces.     Presented in an elevated shade of midnight with highlights of gold, the BOSS x AJBXNG capsule collection presents ten pieces in a seamless combination of thebrand’s signature elegance and Joshua’s desire to include “the color that representsa win.”     T-shirts, sweatshirts, jersey pants, knits, and a hooded jacket make up the capsule, each featuring a curved interpretation of the iconic BOSS logo in gold, either as a signature detail, or in oversized form across the chest or upper back.

Nxt Museum, the first new media art museum in the Netherlands, opens its doors

Art From last week, visitors can immerse themselves in the futuristic world of Nxt Museum.The groundbreaking museum - which is the first in the Netherlands dedicated to New Media Art - opens its doors to the public with the inaugural exhibition ‘Shifting Proximities’.     Located in the up-and-coming North of Amsterdam, Nxt Museum presents eight large-scale, multi-sensory art installations, four of which have been commissioned by and are premiering at Nxt Museum. Each of the multi-disciplinary installations has been created in collaboration with local and international artists, designers, technologists, scientists and musicians, fusing creative ideas with pioneering academic research and technological innovation.     Merel van Helsdingen, Founder and Managing Director of the museum, said: “We’re excited beyond belief to be welcoming our first visitors today after three years in-the-making and some hurdles along the way. At Nxt Museum, we fuse innovative art and state-of-the-art technology to reflect on the present and look towards the future. I hope that our visitors will feel challenged, stimulated and inspired by these incredible artworks and will leave with new understandings of the world and their place within it.”     Shifting Proximities, curated by Bogomir Doringer with co-curator Jesse Damiani, examines how human experience and interaction are affected by social and technological change. Visitors are invited to engage and interact physically, emotionally and intellectually with the art — from experiencing the formation of a black hole, to learning how plants communicate with each other, and subjecting themselves to the flaws of facial recognition algorithms.     Curator Bogomir Doringer said: “We’re opening the museum in times of COVID-19, which has dramatically shifted the proximities between us and has changed life as we know it. In moments like these, we must come together and unite towards common goals. Shifting Proximities explores how technology helps us stay connected and protected, while confronting how it can be mobilised to control and exploit us. We place artists at the forefront of navigating these complex contradictions and, by relying on active audience participation, we aim to highlight the role and responsibility of us all in shaping the future.”     The works in the first exhibition are: ●  Connected (2020), a new commission by audio-visual artist Roelof Knol with sound by Marc Mahfoud ●  Topologies #1 (2020), a new commission by United Visual Artists (UVA) ●  Habitat (2020), a new work by artist Heleen Blanken with software developer NAIVI and sound artist Stijn van Beek ●  Distortions in Spacetime (2018-2020) by audiovisual pioneers Marshmallow Laser Feast ●  Econtinuum (2020), a new commission by ecological artist Thijs Biersteker in collaboration with plant neurobiologist Stefano Mancuso ●  Biometric Mirror (2018-2020) by sci-fi artist and body architect Lucy McRae and Dr Niels Wouters, an action researcher in human-computer interaction and digital ethics ●  Nxt Stage presents: Dimensional Sampling (2019-2020) by artist and coder Yuxi Cao (James) with sound artist Lau Hiu Kong (Lawrence) ●  Nxt Lab presents: a series of four videoworks by Algorithmic Justice League and Joy Buolamwini. Shaking up the tradition of wall texts, digital artist Benjamin Muzzin and sound designer Danny van der Lagt have been commissioned to create explanatory materials that use a combination of projections, moving-image and text to delve further into the rigorous research and collaborative creative process behind each of the art installations. The ‘transition rooms’, situated between the art installations, also offer visitors a place to relax, reflect and re-set as they move through the exhibition.     Shifting Proximities takes over the entirety of Nxt Museum’s 1,400 square metre exhibition space, includingNxt Lab – a dynamic space for education, research and development, and home to the artist residency programme – and Nxt Stage, a platform for innovative performances and audiovisual art. These two regularly- rotating spaces allow Nxt Museum to stay relevant and respond to urgent socio-political concerns.
