GUCCI launches Off The Grid

Fashion Gucci announces the launch of Gucci Off The Grid, the first collection from Gucci Circular Lines, designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, an initiative created to support the House’s vision for circular production.    Designed for those mindful of their environmental impact, Gucci Off The Grid uses recycled, organic, bio-based and sustainably sourced materials, including ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon made from nylon offcuts and pre- and post-consumer waste.   Human beings crave a connection with the outside world and are rightly fascinated by the power and majesty of nature, and highly value the joy there is in being able to live in a natural environment. The desire to explore this way of life, and the natural world in general, is something we can consider an instinctive human desire; and journeys are valuable in being able to fulfil this need. A journey is a way of engaging and nourishing the imagination, and it is for this reason that Gucci embraces the idea of the journey as a means of self-discovery and self-expression.     Along with the launch of the collection, which comprises genderless luggage, accessories, footwear and ready-to-wear, Gucci is releasing a global campaign conceived by Alessandro Michele and shot by photographer and director Harmony Korine. Featuring a cast of city dwellers who have taken up residence in a rustic treehouse, constructed in the heart of a towering concrete and glass modern metropolis. The striking contrast between the small-scale, crudely assembled wooden structure, with its greenery and unfinished planks, and the slick, soaring skyscrapers that dwarf it, makes for whimsical images where our metropolitan explorers look like they are making a modest stand for the future of humankind. Of course, the treehouse and the simple way of life it represents becomes a powerful metaphor for the desire to escape conventional life and enjoy the experience of living more Off The Grid.     Alessandro Michele says: “The collection is the result of teamwork; everybody brought something to it. And in the campaign, too, there is this idea of dialogue among people building something new. I imagined that we could build a treehouse in a city centre, all together, like kids playing in the park. Because all of us need to build this house or to find out that our planet exists, even where it seems it’s not there, or it’s far away.”     The eclectic group of treehouse people starring in the campaign, which was shot in Los Angeles prior to recent events, includes: Jane Fonda, Academy Award-winning actress, producer, author and activist; guitarist, singer-songwriter, record producer and actor Miyavi; David de Rothschild, environmentalist and explorer; GRAMMY Award-winning rapper, singer and songwriter Lil Nas X; and King Princess, singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and music producer.     The campaign will break on the Gucci ArtWalls worldwide from June 15th in the following locations: Milan’s Largo la Foppa, in the district of Corso Garibaldi; just off East London’s famous Brick Lane; Shanghai’s Fengsheng Li, Jingan district; and Lafayette Street, in Manhattan’s SoHo neighbourhood; Hong Kong’s D’Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong; and Yongkang Street, Da’an District, Taipei.     A special section on the Gucci App will allow users to challenge themselves to a themed quiz, responding to questions about the collection and its circular production process. Taking inspiration from the campaign’s concept, players can build their own city tree house virtually by correctly answering questions, and eventually unlock dedicated wallpaper to share on social media.     Sustainability – at all levels – involves fostering respect: respect for the people we share our planet with as well as for the environment. If we lighten our environmental footprint we can explore the world with greater freedom – the freedom to follow our dreams, with curiosity, openness and joy.   #GucciOffTheGrid     The collection’s main material is 100% regenerated nylon created from recycled ECONYL® yarn. This yarn comes from nylon from pre- and post-consumer waste, including abandoned fishing nets and carpets — transforming plastics that harm marine life and old materials that will likely end up in landfills into a new high-quality thread. Gucci was the first luxury brand to use ECONYL® regenerated nylon thread for its products, beginning in 2016. Other components of Gucci Off The Grid are made from recycled materials and more sustainable alternatives such as metal-free tanned leather, recycled polyester thread and linings, recycled brass, recycled gold and palladium hardware coating, and solvent-free adhesives. To support a continued cycle, the ECONYL® offcuts are recovered from Gucci Off the Grid’s manufacturing and then recycled to create new ECONYL® materials as part of the “GUCCI-ECONYL® PRE CONSUMER FABRIC TAKE BACK PROGRAM”. Leather scraps from the collection are also recovered and upcycled as part of the Gucci-Up programme.   Regarding greenhouse gas emissions, Gucci’s core approach to sustainability here is first to avoid and reduce the impacts in its own operations and across the entire supply chain, and then, as a last measure, to protect and conserve nature though offsetting. To this end, the House has incorporated more sustainable alternatives related to the sourcing of raw materials, the manufacturing and production processes, and distribution and sales, in order to lower greenhouse gas emissions, and has offset the remaining emissions through Gucci’s annual carbon neutral commitment, which supports REDD+ projects that protect forests and biodiversity in vital places around the world to help the conservation of our planet.   The Gucci Off The Grid collection comes with dedicated FSC-certified packaging, which includes a card displaying a Gucci logo that features information about the products and the story behind the Gucci Off The Grid sustainability project.     Creative Director: Alessandro Michele Art Director: Christopher Simmonds Photographer/Director: Harmony Korine Talents: Jane Fonda, Lil Nas X, King Princess, Miyavi, David de Rothschild  Make Up: Thomas de Kluyver Hair Stylist: Alex Brownsell Gucci announces the launch of Gucci Off The Grid, the first collection from Gucci Circular Lines, designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, an initiative created to support the House’s vision for circular production.    Designed for those mindful of their environmental impact, Gucci Off The Grid uses recycled, organic, bio-based and sustainably sourced materials, including ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon made from nylon offcuts and pre- and post-consumer waste.   Human beings crave a connection with the outside world and are rightly fascinated by the power and majesty of nature, and highly value the joy there is in being able to live in a natural environment.

In conversation with Adam Katz Sinding

Photography In conversation with the incredibly talented photographer Adam Katz Sinding.     Who are you and what is your profession?   My name is Adam Katz Sinding.  Not Adam Katz.  I’m an american photographer but am based in Copenhagen, Denmark for the past 3.5 years.  I grew up in Tacoma, WA, lived in Seattle for 10 years, Paris for 6 months, New York City for 6 years, Amsterdam for 1 year and now here.  I travel(led) to fashion weeks and events around the world for the past 10 years shooting street fashion, backstage, editorials, lookbooks, and campaigns.  Lots of people think I’m a “street style photographer” but…I do a lot more than that. Currently, however…I’m sitting on my ass in Nørrebro and I’m likely the happiest I’ve ever been.     How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   Well, currently, as stated, I’m not working. That opportunity has given me a lot of perspective.  I’m of course worried about finances, but for the most part, it’s being a positive situation. That being said, I assume Fashion Week will resume.  I HOPE not to the same extent as before.  There are talks by the BFC and CFDA of combining women’s and men’s shows into one, and that could be wonderful.  We would all have to travel less, reducing our massive carbon footprint.  We would have more time for real life as well. That being said, the fashion industry is one of excess and glutony.  So who knows…but I would love to see shows combined in order to reduce my impact on the environment, increase my mental health, and generally have a higher quality of life.  People will likely go back to their original consumption levels once the economy bounces back, which is sad.  I just hope that a percentage of them can see a bit clearer what is really a “need” and not just a “want”.     How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?   I ride my bike.  A lot.  As of today I’ve ridden 6488km this year.  Last year I rode 7000km for the whole year.  I’m exploring the beautiful countryside of Denmark, seeing more than likely most Danes have!  It’s an incredible experience, and I bring along a camera and shoot some of the pastoral landscapes I find.  You can see that all on my website in the travel section.     What is in your planning or was in your planning for this year and how will Covid -19 effect that?   I mean…my job is travel.  And that has halted.  I have been in Copenhagen since March 8th, and I dont have a fashion week to look forward to until CPHFW in mid August.  I have a flight to Seattle/Tacoma on July 3rd to visit my mom for the month, and I hope I’m able to take it.  All of my jobs and other travel has been cancelled.  It’s been a bummer, I was meant to be in Mallorca and Girona to ride.  Then Utah right now to ride.  London Men’s FW should be starting in a few days, but that’s cancelled.  Pitti is moved to September.  Milan and Paris mens are cancelled or moved to September. Couture is cancelled.  It’s wild.  But I’m loving being domestic.  Buying groceries.  Riding my bike.  Doing NOTHING.  This interview is the only thing in my planner for today aside from a gravel ride later tonight and then dinner with a friend.  It’s pretty great to have NOTHING to do.     What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it?   I ran 700+km this year prior to being stuck in DK. I lost 500g.  I’ve ridden 6500km (I’d say the approximate equal to running 700km) and I’ve lost 10kg. Seeing how your body works when you’re not travelling, when you can have a routine.  Eating better (slightly) and having lower stress has done wonders for me. It’s been awesome.  Also seeing how people have come together in their isolation is pretty incredible.  In Denmark people really followed the rules for the most part.  We didnt get hit too hard here, but it was great to see people really doing their part to slow the spread.     Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your resume.   I’m a neat-freak.  I spend most of my free time of the bike cleaning and redecorating my apartment in Nørrebro.  I walk around lining up books, wiping down dusty surfaces, polishing off the calcium stains from the hard Danish water.  Vacuumming like a motherfucker (send me free stuff, Dyson!).  My apartment is finally feeling like a home, and that’s such a nice change to Airbnbs and hotels 300 days a year.     What's the first place you'd want to go when it's safe again to travel and go out of our homes and why there?   If I could go anywhere it would be home to Tacoma. If it’s not going to be a “home” place then I’d go to Tbilisi, Georgia.  The FW was cancelled there in May, and I’m really missing Khatchapuri and the Georgian landscapes and people.       What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?   Boil water and make coffee.  Before bed, I watch netflix for the first time in a decade. Before this, I had an account but only my mom used it as I was too busy with work.      What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far? Hmmmmm…that’s hard. Probably Guernica or The Third of May 1808.  They are both hard hard hard subjects, but I love these paintings.  They are especialy relevant in this moment of horrible police brutality in the USA.   Subjugated people being further subjugated or killed by the establishment.  History repeating.  I dont see how they can inspire my work in anyway, but their images do live in my brain, and it’s important to recall these moments of struggle and pain in order to remember how lucky we are in our cozy little bubbles.     What is your work-out routine like, especially nowadays with more time on your hands?   Wake up, ride, ride, ride, coca-cola, rideriderideride, home, shower, falafel pita…sleep.  I rode 926km last week and I feel like I’m unstoppable now. I’m not trying to be faster.  Not trying to be better.  Just trying to explore, use my body, get a nice ugly tan from the Lycra, and see/hear/smell/feel the world that’s outside the city.      Are you able to rest during this time of stillness? 200%.  I like to be busy, but excercise if cathartic for me, so working out is rest for my brain.      What do you miss the most during these times? My friends from FW.  My mom.  My friends back home.  That’s about it.  Nothing else from “before” seems that important anymore.     Follow Adam: WEBSITE: AdamKatzSinding.com INSTAGRAM: @ AKS and @AdamKatzSinding     portrait of Adam by Willem Sizoo and all images in the article by AKS In conversation with the incredibly talented photographer Adam Katz Sinding.     Who are you and what is your profession?   My name is Adam Katz Sinding.  Not Adam Katz.  I’m an american photographer but am based in Copenhagen, Denmark for the past 3.5 years.  I grew up in Tacoma, WA, lived in Seattle for 10 years, Paris for 6 months, New York City for 6 years, Amsterdam for 1 year and now here.  I travel(led) to fashion weeks and events around the world for the past 10 years shooting street fashion, backstage, editorials, lookbooks, and campaigns.  Lots of people think I’m a “street style photographer” but…I do a lot more than that. Currently, however…I’m sitting on my ass in Nørrebro and I’m likely the happiest I’ve ever been.     How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   Well, currently, as stated, I’m not working. That opportunity has given me a lot of perspective.  I’m of course worried about finances, but for the most part, it’s being a positive situation. That being said, I assume Fashion Week will resume.  I HOPE not to the same extent as before.  There are talks by the BFC and CFDA of combining women’s and men’s shows into one, and that could be wonderful.  We would all have to travel less, reducing our massive carbon footprint.  We would have more time for real life as well. That being said, the fashion industry is one of excess and glutony.  So who knows…but I would love to see shows combined in order to reduce my impact on the environment, increase my mental health, and generally have a higher quality of life.  People will likely go back to their original consumption levels once the economy bounces back, which is sad.  I just hope that a percentage of them can see a bit clearer what is really a “need” and not just a “want”.     How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?   I ride my bike.  A lot.  As of today I’ve ridden 6488km this year.  Last year I rode 7000km for the whole year.  I’m exploring the beautiful countryside of Denmark, seeing more than likely most Danes have!  It’s an incredible experience, and I bring along a camera and shoot some of the pastoral landscapes I find.  You can see that all on my website in the travel section.     What is in your planning or was in your planning for this year and how will Covid -19 effect that?   I mean…my job is travel.  And that has halted.  I have been in Copenhagen since March 8th, and I dont have a fashion week to look forward to until CPHFW in mid August.  I have a flight to Seattle/Tacoma on July 3rd to visit my mom for the month, and I hope I’m able to take it.  All of my jobs and other travel has been cancelled.  It’s been a bummer, I was meant to be in Mallorca and Girona to ride.  Then Utah right now to ride.  London Men’s FW should be starting in a few days, but that’s cancelled.  Pitti is moved to September.  Milan and Paris mens are cancelled or moved to September. Couture is cancelled.  It’s wild.  But I’m loving being domestic.  Buying groceries.  Riding my bike.  Doing NOTHING.  This interview is the only thing in my planner for today aside from a gravel ride later tonight and then dinner with a friend.  It’s pretty great to have NOTHING to do.     What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it?   I ran 700+km this year prior to being stuck in DK.

At home with Mads Mullins

Fashion At home with Mads Mullins at IMG, captured by Alex Cruz.     Who are you and what is your profession?    My name is Mads Mullins, I am an artist, a self proclaimed weirdo, and very eclectic.  My profession is a creative visual artist (model) I make art by using my body in ways that create a story.       How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   I believe that the fashion industry won’t change that much once we get past Covid-19. If the virus doesn’t go away anytime soon the effects on the fashion industry will be more on the side of restricted travel but that’s all I see changing. Artists always find a way to continue to create.     How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?    I spend most of my time with my family or playing video games. I do try to continue making art and keeping my creativity thriving      What is your first memory with fashion? And how did you start modeling?   My first memory is when I was 4 years old in England in a little market, I saw a long pink coat with fur around the edges that I just fell in love with, the coat made me feel expensive and pretty. I started modeling around two years ago when I saw my mother agents ad on Facebook, I contacted her and got signed immediately.      What is your daily beauty routine like? And what beauty products you cannot go without?   I wake up and brush my teeth and I exfoliate my face with the milk makeup cleanser and then I moisturize and do a lip scrub so I can put on my lip moisturizer.  I can’t go without my milk moisturizer and lip gloss, they make my skin so glowy.      Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your resume.    I used to be an animal care technician at my local SPCA, I love animals so much.  I also know how to weld metal.      What's the first place you'd want to go when it's safe again to travel and go out of our  homes and why there?    I just want to get back to work so either back to Paris or New York.      What is your favorite song at the moment and why? Do you have a playlist that you would like to share with us?   Right now I am obsessed with the song strawberry kisses by Olivia Herdt, this song just makes me happy and relaxed. It’s a bit different then my usual rock and 80s style.      What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?   When I wake I grab my switch and play animal crossing, the last thing I do is either play more animal crossing or play Call of Duty on Xbox.      Have you ever been to Amsterdam? If yes, describe your experience of Amsterdam in one sentence.    Sadly I have not been to Amsterdam yet but I hope I can go very soon.      What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far?   This is a hard question because all art speaks to me in different ways, but if I had to say it would be the beautiful works of Hanna Jaeun in particular the painting called “past memories”. In my art I have been inspired by her but I would like to do more works like her style.      What make-up products do you swear by?   I live for milk makeup products. They make my sensitive skin feel so smooth and nice     What is your favorite shade of lipstick and why?   I love a sheer pink glossy lipstick or a dark classic red.  At home with Mads Mullins at IMG, captured by Alex Cruz.     Who are you and what is your profession?    My name is Mads Mullins, I am an artist, a self proclaimed weirdo, and very eclectic.  My profession is a creative visual artist (model) I make art by using my body in ways that create a story.       How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   I believe that the fashion industry won’t change that much once we get past Covid-19.

If yes, describe your experience of Amsterdam in one sentence.    Sadly I have not been to Amsterdam yet but I hope I can go very soon.      What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far?   This is a hard question because all art speaks to me in different ways, but if I had to say it would be the beautiful works of Hanna Jaeun in particular the painting called “past memories”. In my art I have been inspired by her but I would like to do more works like her style.      What make-up products do you swear by?   I live for milk makeup products. They make my sensitive skin feel so smooth and nice     What is your favorite shade of lipstick and why?   I love a sheer pink glossy lipstick or a dark classic red.

At home with McKenna Hellam

Fashion At home with McKenna Hellam at IMG, exclusively photographed by Xavier Avery.     Who are you  and what is your profession?   I am mckenna Hellam, a typical southern girl next door. I also am an independent business woman that is in fashion marketing by playing dress up!   How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   I think things in th fashion world will change and lead more toward social media and creative type shoots from a distance. Face masks will become a fashion accessory for sure! I think the world return to a new normal-I’m not sure what that will look like but I hope the distancing rules lighten some, I’m going to an aunt and I want to be there for everything!     How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?   I have been spending my time quarantined with my best friend and my family. Ive been able to do a few FaceTime photoshoots! While they are a great way to still create, they don't compare to shooting in person.      What is your first memory with fashion? And how did you start modeling?   My first memory of fashion is playing dress up in my mom and older sisters clothes. Especially trying on their heels if they had any.     What is your daily beauty routine like? And what beauty products you cannot go without?   My beauty routine is fairly simple. I wake up wash my face, moisturize, and put sunscreen on. Sometimes ill put makeup on for something to do. I wash my face at night and then moisturize. If I'm feeling like wanting to do a little more I'll put on some type of face mask.     What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it?   In quarantine I have kinda learned how to do a headstand. I learned by watching someones video on instagram and just kept practicing. I'm still not very good at it yet.      Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your resume.    I can do voices, especially a really good stitch impersonation.     What's the first place you'd want to go when it's safe again to travel and go out of our homes and why there?   Back to my apartment in Brooklyn. I'd go back there because I'm starting to miss NYC and my comfortable bed!     What is your favorite song at the moment and why? Do you have a playlist that you would like to share with us?    One of my favorite songs at the moment is Freakin' Out On The Interstate by Briston Maroney. I just love the way it sounds and it's just super cute. I have a few playlist on Spotify of my favorite songs and artists!     What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?    The first thing I like to do when I wake up is make coffee! Before bed I like to try and read a book!     Have you ever been to Amsterdam? If yes, describe your experience of Amsterdam in one sentence.   I have been to Amsterdam a couple of times but unfortunately it was just a fly into a job then leave right after, but I definitely want to return and explore it more!     What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far?   My favorite painting is the creation of man by Michaelangelo. Soft colors and the simple suggestion of human touch and beginning of time with way bigger implications.     What made you start creating masks with your mother for the nurses and everyone on the front lines?    We started creating masks because my mom came home from her doctors office where she works and said that they were have to reuse masks and protective gear. So, we took it upon ourselves to help and makes some masks to temporarily use!

At home with Sean O'Pry

Men During the quarantine times we had a chance to work on an exclusive project and interview with top model Sean O'Pry, who was captured on the streets of New York with his girlfriend Fernanda Liz by Kat Irlin.     Who are you  and what is your profession?   Hey everybody, I’m Sean O’Pry. Pronounced ( O-prī not O-prey) I’m from Kennesaw, GA and I have worked as an advertising associate(model) in fashion since 2006.   How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   I think fashion is an expression and not a perception since I have the honor to portray other people's ideas and art through my image and movement. Being from a small town in Georgia, I don't think of perception too much. I think that has helped me through my career.    Looking short-term, I believe things will change drastically. Not just in fashion, but the way we live our lives. Specifically, within the fashion industry, traveling, location shoots, interaction on photoshoots, and events will take a backseat for a while. Thus, we will all have to reinvent ourselves for the time being.    Long-term is a lot harder to look at, as there are a lot of factors to consider. Some of these we might haven't seen or heard of yet. Will we have a vaccine, will the fear of something like this happening again go away? Like the rest of the world, I think the fashion industry will have a new normal. Much like social distancing it's a term I hadn't considered before but I'm excited about being on a journey with the most creative people in the world and seeing how we evolve together.   I genuinely think this is a fantastic time for the fashion industry to reset. It will allow the amazing creative people in the industry to do what they do best. Envision, create, and innovate the way we work. I think COVID-19 will make a massive shift in the industry in a positive way. Quality over quantity every day     How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?    During quarantine outside of the usual Netflix and wine I’ve been drawing and painting quite a bit. I’ve been very fortunate to be ‘stuck’ with 2 ‘people’ I love very much. Tallulah and Fernanda.     What is your first memory with fashion? And how did you start modeling?   My first fashion memory would come day 2 into modeling on my first shoot with Nagi Sakai.  We were shooting D magazine with another model from my agency named Marcus Hedabrandh. It was my first time changing in front of anyone other than a family member and they gave me these mui mui sandals with socks ,shorts and a big jacket...I turned to the other model changing at the time( Marcus) and asked “do I really have to wear this..?” He laughed and walked away. We are friends now, it took him a few years though. I talked a lot.           What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and what made you learn it?  It might sound weird but silence. The ability to be centered in such an unsure time.   Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your CV.   My first job was building retaining walls for pools over 3 summers, and then I worked at Abercrombie kids as a welcomer. I got fired after 3 weeks.     What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed? First thing I do is make a coffee and feed Tallulah. Last thing I do is kiss my girls and pray before I go to sleep.     Have you ever been to Amsterdam? If yes, describe your experience of Amsterdam in one sentence.   Yes I love Amsterdam. Describe Amsterdam in one sentence....Too much fun.   What is your go-to work-out for staying in shape? What does working out mean to you?  If you know me I pace constantly, so my mind and metabolism run at 1000x a minute, I’ve been fortunate for that. Working out for me will be more weight training than cardio to keep weight on and gives me a since of peace and fulfillment. Growing up in sports it was a part of the natural progression and I’ve continued that into this field as well.      What is your favorite books and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far? At the moment focusing more on educational books within art and architecture than self help or fiction. Studying a lot of Sol Lewis/frank Lloyd Wright and Dan Flavin retrospectives.   Are you working on any cool new projects during these times?   At the moment I’m in the startup phase of a new exciting venture with my friend Oliver. More information coming soon.     Tell us about your beautiful golden retriever. How great is it to have a dog as part of your life?     Tallulah is hands down the best dog. Cuddles on command and also when she decides, which is constant. Only downside is the amount of vacuuming because of all the shedding during the warmer months.      What is your favorite place you have visited so far and that you would love to re-visit in the future again?   Savusavu, Fiji. If you love an untouched beautiful oasis of people, land and water, this place is for you. The land and water are from another world but it’s the locals that really make this island magic.

At home with Will Peltz

Fashion Exclusive interview with the talented actor and model Will Peltz, photographed by Justin Campbell.     How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined? - I just recently have joined my family in quarantine and have taken the opportunity to spend time together. We play chess, watch old movies and prepare meals together. At this time the world is a different place so we have to adapt and create in different ways.       What is your first memory with fashion? And how did you start modeling? My first memory with fashion would definitely be when I got my first pair of Jordan’s and is still very much a part of my style today. I’ve always been a sneaker head. I did a piece with Interview Magazine promoting my movie Men, Women and Children which brought me into the fashion world.      What is your daily beauty routine like? And what beauty products you cannot go without? Washing my face and applying sunscreen.      What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it? I’ve learned to take my time with things. I was always in such a rush before.      Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your CV? I’m double jointed in both of my thumbs :).      What's the first place you'd want to go when it's safe again to travel and go out of our homes? A movie theatre!      What is your favorite song at the moment and why? Do you have a playlist that you would like to share with us?  I’ve actually been listening to a lot of classical music. I find it very calming.       What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed? The first thing I do when I wake up is have my morning coffee. My nightly routine changes every night.      Have you ever been to Amsterdam? If yes, describe your experience of Amsterdam in one sentence. Unfortunately I have not but I can’t wait to go someday.     What is your go-to work-out for staying in shape? What does working out mean to you?  I’ve been doing a lot of walking and rollerblading lately but honestly I can’t wait to play basketball when quarantine is over.      What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far?  ‘Starry night’ by Van Gogh, not yet.       How was it like being a part of Euphoria?   It was really cool to be a part of a show that speaks so honestly to this generation.      Do you have any new roles coming up soon? Yes, I’m very excited to be playing the role of Luke in the upcoming film, Thirteen Minutes.

At home with Marcos Fecchino

Men Exclusive images captured via Zoom by Zeb Daemen and a great conversation with Marcos Fecchino.   Who are you and what do you do?   Who I am? That’s a good question. I am Marcos Fecchino a passionate Argentinian living in New York who loves Art, Fashion, Architecture and Nature. I’m a sensitive, good friend who loves to dance. On the work side I’m a Producer and Creative Director in fashion. My job is basically to take a concept and, working together with a team, transform that concept into a unique final result.    How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   This Virus unfortunately is affecting all of us in the fashion industry in a big way. The affect is particularly dramatic in Fashion because it’s often considered a non-essential, and during an economic crisis consumers are saving money they’d typically spend on fashion in order to purchase essentials.  I think things will slowly pick up, and fashion will come back in force. It’s a durable industry and we’re survivors. There will definitely be a new normal – it’s not going to be the same. But this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I think we should embrace change and focus on building a better and more sustainable industry.    How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?   During quarantine I’ve been taking time to think about my priorities, how I’ve been distributing my time and my energy. It’s an opportunity to stop and think in depth about our lives and ask ourselves if there are ways we can improve and live a healthier and better life.  Normally I travel almost every week and it’s hard to find time to think about these things when you’re constantly on the run, so having this break has been a blessing in certain ways.   What is in your planning or was in your planning for this year and how will Covid-19 effect that?   Career wise, I had many projects lined up, both short term and long term, but the pandemic has forced every single project to be canceled or postponed.  There is still uncertainty around how we will move forward and when, which makes my job very difficult. Many of my clients are in Europe and I think they might start working more locally and not traveling across the Atlantic for 24 / 48 hours for a shoot. Basically I’m having to assess changes in both my professional and personal life month to month, and I’m trying my best to exercise patience and be prepared when things start to open back up.    What is your daily beauty routine like? And what beauty products you cannot go without?   Well . . . In the morning I wash my face with iS Clinical Cleansing Complex, then I use Hyaluronic Acid and a moisturizer with SFP(very important). At night I wash my face again, apply Vitamin C Serum and eye cream both from iS Clinical and last but not least a few times a week I use a toner from Biologique Rechere called P50 1970. When I am on the beach or during summer time I minimize the products I use, because skin typically doesn’t need too much in hot or humid climates, but washing your face during this time is so important.      What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it?   I’ve learned a few things during Quarantine, including some new cooking skills, sewing, and even cutting hair.  It’s been fun. We’ve been sewing masks for a local hospital, and I’ve been cutting hair for family members which is exciting but definitely nerve-wracking.     Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your CV?   I smile more than people think. Also I used to compete in downhill skiing (my favorite sport!) when I was growing up in Argentina.   What's the first place you'd want to go when it's safe again to travel and go out of our homes and why there?   Japan! I’ve been planning a trip there for a long time, and had to reschedule because of the virus.    What is your favorite song at the moment and why? Do you have a playlist that you would like to share with us?   “How Long” by Paul Carrack has been stuck in my head recently. I’ve also been listening a lot to Chet Baker and Stan Getz.     What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?   When I wake up I need to shower or wash my face right away. Before bed I like to read a book or a mindless article to calm my mind.     Have you ever been to Amsterdam? If yes, describe your experience of Amsterdam in one sentence.   I haven’t and I cannot believe it due to how much I travel. I’d love to go though!    What is your go-to work-out for staying in shape? What does working out mean to you?   My go-to workout is a mix between weights and cardio, because I like the balance. Working out for me means that I am putting work into myself, both my body and my mind. Staying in shape is about more than having a good body. It keeps me balanced and reduces stress from work and travel.   What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far?   I don’t really have a favorite painting. I love art from all different periods and places. But I will say that one painting that changed the way I see things is “The Girls of Avignon” by Picasso. I saw this painting when I was a kid and it was my introduction to understanding and appreciating Art. It made me realize there is much more than what you see at first sight. The painting shows so much about what was going on during that period and why. Looking at art for me It’s like you traveling in time.   Can you please share with us  your social media:   WEBSITE:www.marcosfecchino.com          INSTAGRAM: @marcosfecchino Exclusive images captured via Zoom by Zeb Daemen and a great conversation with Marcos Fecchino.   Who are you and what do you do?   Who I am?
