Louis Vuitton Men’s Collection by Virgil Abloh Fall-Winter 2020

Men The title of the Fall-Winter 2020 collection, ‘Heaven on Earth’ is an image of the core values embodied by Virgil Abloh atLouis Vuitton: a dream world that transcends prejudice as an objective to inspire inclusivity and unity-in-diversity through his work. It is underpinned by the overarching philosophy of Black Imagination and the continual imbuement of Black representation within fashion, luxury and beyond. Shot in London, the campaign lends its platform to young creative talent from across the arts, featuring the likes of British actor Michael Ward and Ghanaian model Ottawa Kwami as part of its cast.     The collection studies the anthropology of the suit and the reprogramming of traditional dress codes. Virgil Abloh investigates the lifelong relationship formed by adolescent and young men with shirting and suiting in a material and gurative exercise in freedom, presented within the familiar constrictions of tailoring. The rm symbol of convention, trade and success, the tapered silhouette departs its corporate comfort zone. Twisted and turned, the dress codes of an old world are neutralised, re-appropriated and embraced for a progressive joie de vivre.   Black Imagination: The transformative process of rethinking and overturning the inherited and often unconscious expectations tied to Black identities through history, and creating an encouraging Black consciousness for the present and the future.     The utopian idea of ‘Heaven on Earth’ creates the framework for the Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter 2020 Men’s campaign. Photographed by Tim Walker, the images widen the collection’s surrealist lens through the metaphorical language of clouds. Applying his ongoing premise of Boyhood – seeing the world through the unspoiled eyes of a child – Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh employs clouds as a symbol of freedom, unity and peace. Evading constraint, territory and possession, they are dreamlike bodies oating across a sky observed universally across borders and beliefs.

Exclusive Editorial "Ophelia"

Fashion A story about the human existence. It’s about feeling stuck behind a glass wall. It’s about feeling visible but not seen. Wanted but not welcome. The texture of tenderness running up your spine, gently touching your skin. A weight gets lifted off your chest because you no longer feel trapped within your own flesh. It feels like a warm hand touching your cheek. Skin to skin. Human to human. The collected pieces of yourself form a masterpiece, a goddess pressing her breasts against the wall that’s holding her back. Filling your lungs with life knowing they will expand and contract giving yourself the permission to come home.     TEAM CREDITS: Photography DEBORA BRUNE www.deborabrune.com / @debora_brune Styling CAMILLE NAOMI FRANKE / https://www.camillenaomi.com// @camiillefr Model YASMIN @ LET IT GO MANAGEMENT / @opheliathanatos Hair and Make up ANA BUVINIC @ BASICS BERLIN/ https://www.anabuvinic.com/ @ana.buvinic.mua Assistant JELENA KOVACEVIC / @jelena_asdf LUISA BOCKSNICK / @bxnck A story about the human existence.

Gucci Fall-Winter 2020-2021 Advertising Campaign, The Ritual

Gucci Fall-Winter 2020-2021 Advertising Campaign, The Ritual

Fashion Titled The Ritual, the new Gucci advertising campaign follows the reversal of perspective that characterized Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s vision for the Fall-Winter 2020-2021 show, where the audience was invited to witness what goes on behind the scenes, behind the curtains. Further exploring the idea of looking at things from a different point of view, new possibilities opened up.     Consequently, models were asked to be the authors of the new campaign and were given the brief to simply inhabit the looks in their daily lives from the comfort of their own, intimate spaces and record themselves doing so. The lens is thus that of this eclectic cast of characters, and the result is a deeply personal, honest and candid series of self-portraits.     With freshness and authenticity, these hyper-real images depict one’s home as a personal creative laboratory, whose inhabitants are free to have fun and experiment using their imagination: they acted as photographers and storytellers, producers and scenographers. The different formats echo the array of tools used, ranging from disposable cameras to camera phones, adding to the variety of results and telling of individual decisions about how the protagonists wish to be seen.     “I decided to let the clothes travel towards the houses of the cast of models – the characters that have embodied my stories for years; individuals I chose precisely, over time, for their uniqueness that usually brings my campaigns to life. I asked them to represent the idea they have of themselves, to go public with it, shaping the poetry that accompanies them. I encouraged them to play, improvising with their life”, Alessandro Michele explained.   By ceding control, a new type of creativity is unleashed. So here’s the Gucci community, knitting, gardening, sunbathing, brushing teeth, hanging out on the roof of a building, jumping off a bed, with pets, even playing darts while skateboarding indoors on a polished wooden floor.  Though the scenarios are every day, the images are anything but, showing how Gucci’s magical Romanticism inspires a peculiar, emotional dreamlike quality.   Surprisingly, a certain consistency fosters the whole visual experiment of self-portraits and their footage, a consistency that speaks of an infusion of Gucci, even from afar.   #GucciTheRitual   Credits:   Creative Director: Alessandro Michele Art Director: Christopher Simmonds Photographer/Director: models Hair stylist: models Make up: models Titled The Ritual, the new Gucci advertising campaign follows the reversal of perspective that characterized Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s vision for the Fall-Winter 2020-2021 show, where the audience was invited to witness what goes on behind the scenes, behind the curtains.

Louis Vuitton is pleased to reveal its Autumn-Winter 2020 campaign

Fashion Louis Vuitton is pleased to reveal its Autumn-Winter 2020 campaign directed and photographed by Nicolas Ghesquière, Artistic Director of Women’s Collections. Representing total creative investment in a very personal collection, the campaign expresses contemporary freedom and the pure pleasure of clothing that is open to all manner of audacity.     To photograph this campaign, Nicolas Ghesquière invited Louis Vuitton’s friends and family to his photography studio, a creative laboratory on the Quai Voltaire in Paris: among them were close friends whose personality inspires him, kindred spirits, and favourite faces. Celebrity friends, beloved models, astonishing artists and athletes include Léa Seydoux, Marina Foïs, Noémie Merlant, Akon Changkou, Stacy Martin, Dina Asher-Smith, Lous and the Yakuza and Sora Choi. In all, 20 personalities he wished to represent in their essence. The same holds true of the House’s iconic bags that accompany this stylistic exercise — the Capucines, the Twist, the Pont 9 and the Dauphine.     With the same candor, Nicolas Ghesquière incorporates the new line “SINCE 1854.” A precious jacquard inscribed with a fundamental date, 1854, sprinkled among Monogram owers in a nod to the year the House was created. Already iconic, this Monogram distills the Louis Vuitton spirit on timeless pieces such as the Dauphine, the Neverfull and the Petit Noé. The signature “SINCE 1854” also gures on a wardrobe of essentials and accessories.     Says Nicolas Ghesquière of the campaign, “I thought it would be interesting to extend my work to photography, to follow through to the end of the creative process and give the collection its nal punctuation. In this portrait gallery, everyone is there for my own personal reasons, and I liked discovering new connections with people. I knew already. I also wanted to bring unity to di erent aspects of the House, a circular vision of what happens here. To give a timeless aspect to creations that are very anchored in the season. For me, moving into photography came from a desire to reflect the feeling we share when we’re working on a collection.”     The campaign will be unveiled in September 2020 publications worldwide.
