BALENCIAGA PRESENTS THE FALL 2021 AD CAMPAIGN

Fashion Launched on June 25th, 2021, a campaign directed and produced by video game developer Quantic Dream announces the launch of Balenciaga’s Fall 21 collection in stores.   Using motion capture to create animated versions of real actors, the video follows two characters that meet at a fictional facility providing temporary escapes to virtual scenarios. The protagonists wait in line for a VR headset and separately enter the controlled experience. While there, though, each cannot help but remember the other, hoping to meet up in either the digital or physical realm.     The virtual world these characters enter is partially made of the intricate settings created for Afterworld: The Age of Tomorrow—a groundbreaking cloud-based video game that introduced Balenciaga’s Fall 21 collection.     Fantastic landscapes and other characters enjoying the virtual experience cannot distract the protagonists from their goals of finding the person that caught their interest in line, though. Once the headsets are removed, the protagonists see one another and embrace, each of them transforming into other distinct characters to signify the uncertainty of place and identity in this realm, too.

LOEWE PRESENTS THE SPRING & SUMMER 2022 MEN ́S RUNWAY COLLECTION

Fashion Week LOEWE presents the Spring Summer 2022 men’s runway collection in printed form. The message is one of electrifying escapism, of hope and optimism.     Hedonistic release: the LOEWE Men’s Spring Summer 2022 collection is charged with the electrifying promise of intimacy and the feel of human touch. Creative director Jonathan Anderson keeps shapes at once abstract and straightforward, letting colours explode in a riot of saturated hues.     The theme of the night out is inspired by the work of New York-based, German artist Florian Krewer (b.1986), one of the most exciting new voices in contemporary painting. Autobiographical, yet free from an overt narrative, his work begins in either found or personal photographs he has taken. With a colour palette presenting a surprising range of night-dark blacks, unclean whites and arti cially-sweetened pinks, purples and blues, Krewer’s paintings, populated with characters that are free and chaotic, explore con icts and desires consumed in the public spaces of cities.     A sexual energy is released into the action, with glimpses of the body, or its parts, revealed by draping or strategically placed cutouts. Tripping out translates into an idea of distortion, with coats spouting metal plaques on the back or tops dematerialising into transparent multiple layers. Sequinned animal prints and the all-over paillette leave an insouciantly kitsch trail. The juxtaposition of the pragmatic and the just-plain-bonkers sets the swinging, energetic tone. Logo-patterned trench coats, leather parkas, zip-up coats gathered at the waist, roomy cargo shorts in earthy hues are juxtaposed with draped tunics, cut-out multi-layer jumpers, all-in-ones, space-dye neckerchief tops and trousers made of rope in acrylic colourways. Matching tops and shorts, or tops and trousers, are distorted by prints and decoration.     The looks are accessorised with folded boots, sandals, colourful slippers, bumbags, either in small or mini sizes. The multifaceted Puzzle arrives, for the rst time, in a supple hobo shape or as a bumbag in two sizes, the small and the mini. The LOEWE Anagram jacquard with bright neon pink and apple green colourways on rolltop backpacks and bumbags. Round glasses with brightly coloured frames add another feisty touch.     Joy and freedom come to the fore.     #LOEWE #LOEWESS22 LOEWE presents the Spring Summer 2022 men’s runway collection in printed form.

In conversation with Dieudonnee

Fashion As part of our collaboration with Zalando #ActivistsofOptimism we had a pleasure to work with and speak with Dieudonnee.        Can you please introduce yourself to the readers a little bit.   My Name is Dieudonnée. I'm 25 years old. I am an all around creative, I do design, I model and I do content creation.      What kind of content creation are you most excited to do nowadays?    I think there’s two main party that I really like to do. One is fashion I really like clothing, streetwear and outerwear especially. And the other side is body positivity. As a curvy model there’s a lot of things that come to my attention in my life when it comes to body positivity and confidence. So I’m happy to share that with my people.      What does optimism mean to you?    For me if means finding that silver lining in every situation that happens and I think it's impossible for a person to be 100% optimistic at all times but I think if you learn how to switch negative aspects and turn them into something good and just accepting the fact that something doesn't go as planned for example then you can live a very optimistic life which can help you feel better.     What does freedom mean to you?    I think all of us have kind of experienced how it feels to not be free and to realize actually how free we are in our lives due to the pandemic and the lockdowns. So for me freedom is actually the most important thing in life. I think that’s what everyone strives for. In the end we work and follow our passions but eventually we want to work to a life where we can do what we want to do.    And also it’s a piece of optimism that we can twist into that as well because while realizing that our freedom was taking to a certain extend it also gives as a silver lining of how free we are actually in this country.      When do you feel the most free? What makes you feel free?    I think when I’m surrounded by people that one hundred percent understand me and people that make me feel confident to be myself. That’s when I feel the most free. Also when I travel I feel very free because I feel like nobody knows me in other countries so I can do whatever I want.      What keeps you happy and positive nowadays?    I think sometimes it’s very hard for me to find positivity especially when you don’t know where the situation is going but for me my positivity mostly comes from the weather. It seems to be a small thing from outside but for me personally when the sun is shining and the weather is good it gives me so much more freedom to go where I want to go and just to be outside and be in nature. And that really makes me feel more positive as well. Also what really helps me is routine as well. I notice it when I have a routine and I go to the gym 2 or 3 days a week even though it’s just Yoga or whatever. And I get up every morning at the same time and have my hot water with lemon. It gives me this state of piece where I can always fall back to.    It’s just less stressful and makes you feel calm.      What are you looking forward to in the near future? What excites you about future?    When I’m talking about personal aspects I’m excited about my personal development and the things I want to do. I just started my own clothing brand so I’m excited to see where that’s going and also to see where it’s going with modeling.     What kind of clothing?    We make streetwear based on the female silhouettes.      Does that connect to body positivity?    Yes it does. Because I’m a big fan of streetwear and I wear a lot of Men’s clothing but I feel like every brand that I wear doesn’t necessarily fit my body type so I always have to get it adjusted. When you have a smaller waist and bigger hips, most of the pants already don’t fit. And I noticed that a lot of brands are marketed as unisex but their clothing is not based on the female body. So I just wanted it to do the other way round.      What do you daydream about?    I am the biggest dreamer ever. I daydream all the time, I always zone out. I don’t know it’s a hard question because I do it all the time. I don’t know if you believe in astrology but I’m a cancer and cancers are people that make up scenarios in their head all the time. Usually when I daydream I’m just picturing the perfect scenario of something and then hoping it will happen one day.      Team: Videography & Fashion: GINO GURRIERI @ginogurrieri  Photography: HANS VAN BRAKEL @hansvanbrakelstudio Make Up & Hair: WOUT PHILIPPO  Casting TIMOTEJ LETONJA @timiletonja Production: MAGDALENA ROE @magdalenaroe  Video Assistant: JELLE VAN BRAKEL @jelle.vbr Photography Assistant: SANDER VAN BRAKEL @sandervbrakel Fashion Assistant: MICHAEL GEERTZEN @michael_geertzen Make Up & Hair Assistant: LONA CERUTTI @lonamakeupartist Words and Voiceover: CHELSEABOY @xochelseaboy  Music: ‚Also Sprach Zarathustra, op.30’ RICHARD STRAUSS TALENTS: CHELSEABOY @xochelseaboy , MAGDALENA ROE @magdalenaroe, TIMOTEJ LETONJ @timiletonja, DIEUDONNÉE @dieudonnee via PLACE MODELS @placemodels, SANDER VAN BRAKEL @sandervbrakel, JELLE VAN BRAKEL @jelle.vbr, MICHAEL GEERTZEN @michael_geertzen, LAURENS @therealfishtank via THE MOVEMENT MODELS @themovementmodels  Photography & production assistant @daniel.sars      All clothing available on Zalando. https://www.zalando.nl   As part of our collaboration with Zalando #ActivistsofOptimism we had a pleasure to work with and speak with Dieudonnee.        Can you please introduce yourself to the readers a little bit.   My Name is Dieudonnée.

Fashion spreads were just one element in an editorial mix that focused on culture in the broadest sense, with a keen eye on how the past informs the present.     Narrated by a timeless theme explored through photography, art, literature and journalism, Acne Paper published the work of top level contributors from di erent generations and was admired for its elegant art direction and high production value.     The book includes the work of legendary photographers such as David Bailey, Saul Leiter, Sarah Moon, Snowdon, Irving Penn and Paolo Roversi, as well as image makers of younger generations including Roe Ethridge, Jamie Hawkesworth, Julia Hetta,Viviane Sassen and Sølve Sundsbø, to name but a very few.     Edited byThomas Persson, Acne Paper’s editor- in-chief and creative director, the book features interviews with and contributions from Azzedine Alaïa, Isabelle Huppert, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Kim Jones, David Lynch, Malcolm McLaren, Arthur Mitchell, Glenn O’Brien, Hans Ulrich Obrist,Tilda Swinton and GillianWearing.     For the cover and opening portfolio, Christopher Smith, known for his self portraits, has given his artistic interpretation of Acne Paper and its fteen themes.     Acne Paper.

In conversation with Anna Pahlavi

Fashion We had a delight speaking & working  with princess Anna Pahlavi in the interview and editorial bellow.       What was the moment in your childhood when you knew you wanted to be an artist?   That came later in my life. When I arrived in Paris in my 20’s, I decided to study art . I met a lot of interesting artists, that inspired me and made me want to be a part of this creative world. A defining moment in my life was when I was accepted at Parsons School of art and design. Soon after, I had my first group exhibit at the Museum of photography (MEP). It was collaborative project with my dear friend Martin d’Orgeval who happens to be a great artist. The Museum purchased two of our pieces, from that particular exhibit, for their own collection.      Was there a lot of art and artwork around you when you grew up in Kiev?   Environment where I grew up was already a piece of work. I even fell out of a balcony because there was no fences on it. The transformative power of art can do miracles. Besides that I was mostly surrounded by books. Classics were my main interest.      What does fashion mean to you?   I think Fashion can mean only one thing- Freedom. Without freedom, fashion would not be possible.      What project are you working on at the moment?   I am preparing a new set of works where I’m, a continuation of my last exhibition which was at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Clichy. I find myself more and more drawn to nature and what it has to offer.      Does a royal and being a model and artist go together well?   Traditionally royals were original models in the society. Sometimes the aspect of character/ title that is perceived by others is only a term. I believe we all have our own identity. Our persona is not fixed in one single character. The essence of your identity and soul, that if the essence is vibrant and compassionate, than grace will be present through whatever you do. You can be a painter one day, the filmmaker the other or a botanist tomorrow. The fun part of being an individual that you can choose to transform yourself from one to the other. As for me being a royal is less commitment out of the three. The meeting point of the three would be charisma. Historically speaking charisma was a divine gift to the royal person and the source of their power. Charisma is what inspires people.     Looking back at your exhibitions, which one was your very favourite?   Everything I was working on so far, every project brought some kind of magic to my reality. But I do put a heart on all of the projects in which I collaborated together with “Let us in”, independent contemporary art organization that sharing a message of creative values and social significance in alternative locations.      Where do you get your inspiration for your artwork?   As an artist I am aware that art work is a result of interaction of us and the environment. Since I am taking a part in this process, I get inspired by everything and everyone that I surround myself with.      Emotions are a big part of your artwork,  how are those two connected?   Every viewer has a different perspective on my work based on their own experience. I like the variety of opinions. Right now my focus is on expanding human emotion to emotions of nature. A little bit like Neo-Romanticism.      Your husband is also an artist, do you contribute to each other’s artwork, or do you have very different styles?   My husband and I have separate projects, which we review together. Sometimes I model for his paintings and photographs.     How did you experience this pandemic as an artist as well as a royal?   The feeling of isolation wasn’t so bad, being connected to nature and animals was the best part of it. I was lucky enough to be locked in a nice house,  in Spain, where I had time to take care of my intellect and enough space to express myself creatively. My experiences was close to finding back the time of Otium.    Do you have big plans for when the pandemic ends?   The politicians are saying it won’t end, so why should I delude myself:)       TEAM CREDITS:  TALENT: ANNA PAHLAVI at PLPUBLICIST PHOTOGRAPHER: LOUISE THORNFELDT at BAD LAND STYLIST: ELINE HOYOIS MAKE UP: YUMI ENDO at THE WALL GROUP HAIR: LAURIE ZANOLETTI at THE WALL GROUP We had a delight speaking & working  with princess Anna Pahlavi in the interview and editorial bellow.       What was the moment in your childhood when you knew you wanted to be an artist?   That came later in my life. When I arrived in Paris in my 20’s, I decided to study art . I met a lot of interesting artists, that inspired me and made me want to be a part of this creative world. A defining moment in my life was when I was accepted at Parsons School of art and design. Soon after, I had my first group exhibit at the Museum of photography (MEP). It was collaborative project with my dear friend Martin d’Orgeval who happens to be a great artist. The Museum purchased two of our pieces, from that particular exhibit, for their own collection.      Was there a lot of art and artwork around you when you grew up in Kiev?   Environment where I grew up was already a piece of work. I even fell out of a balcony because there was no fences on it. The transformative power of art can do miracles. Besides that I was mostly surrounded by books. Classics were my main interest.      What does fashion mean to you?   I think Fashion can mean only one thing- Freedom. Without freedom, fashion would not be possible.      What project are you working on at the moment?   I am preparing a new set of works where I’m, a continuation of my last exhibition which was at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Clichy. I find myself more and more drawn to nature and what it has to offer.      Does a royal and being a model and artist go together well?   Traditionally royals were original models in the society. Sometimes the aspect of character/ title that is perceived by others is only a term. I believe we all have our own identity. Our persona is not fixed in one single character. The essence of your identity and soul, that if the essence is vibrant and compassionate, than grace will be present through whatever you do.

In conversation with Gottmik

Fashion We had a delight speaking with Kade Gottlieb AKA Gottmik.       Who are you and what is your profession?   Hi! My name is Kade Gottlieb AKA Gottmik from RuPauls drag race season 13 and I am a performer! From makeup to drag I am ready to show my artistry in every way possible!      When did you start as a Make-Up Artist? How and why did you start?   I have been in love with makeup for as long as I can remember but I started working as a signed professional makeup artist when I was 21! I grew up painting and drawing, so seeing my skills translated on people made it living art and I was obsessed.     What are your first memories when it comes to fashion?   The first time I was beyond moved and realized I wanted fashion to be a part of my life was Alexander McQueens Fall 2009 collection. I was in 7th grade and I remember feeling emotions and seeing beauty in a way I never had felt before. A backstage photo from that runway to this day is hung above my bed!      What inspires you the most when it comes to fashion?   I love when art makes people feel something. When I do anything I want to put my emotions and my life experience into whatever I’m doing and that’s what inspires me when it comes to fashion as well. Feeling emotion through a runway is just such a butterfly magic moment for me.     What person in the (fashion) industry inspires you the most?   Anyone that pushes boundaries in the fashion industry inspires me. Galliano, Gaultier, McQueen, Rick Owens, Vicente Westwood, Thome Browne. I could go on forever!      What is your first memory with drag? And how did you start doing drag?   I first saw drag when I was 16 at my first pride in Phoenix Arizona! The queen I saw was very androgynous and I remember thinking that I finally found my art form. It was a way to explore gender and I never looked back!     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 off the top of my head I’d have to say that strong enough by Cher is my favorite song because I’m on tour right now with two of my favorite people in the world (Vanessa Vanjie Mateo and Asia Ohara) and we play that song right as the show is about to start and we dance like I have never danced in my life every time!!       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 honestly I check my phone to see what time it is because if I’m not being woken up by an alarm these days I’m panicking that I missed something. The last thing I do before I go to bed is thank God and the universe for my life. Literally every blessing and opportunity that is coming my way currently seems so surreal and truly feels like my dreams are coming true, so I have to give credit where credit is due!     Tell us about your highlights in your career, especially after RuPaul's Drag Race?   Being on RDR was absolutely a dream come true for me, and every opportunity that has followed so far has been insane and it has only been a few months! I got to present an award at the MTV movie and tv awards with RuPaul, Michelle Visage, and Symone, I got to go on tour with some of the best drag entertainers in the world, and now I’m on the cover of Numero!      How has it been after the show? How did it affect your personal life and growth?   My life after the show has been non stop. I haven’t really had a full day off since the finale and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Every day I am growing as a person and an artist whether is physically thanks to drag queens around me teaching me old tricks, or if it’s spiritually/ emotionally thanks to meditation and finding inner strength to get me through these long days! either way I’m beyond blessed and thankful and so excited for what the future holds!     What are some of your favorite moments when thinking of your RuPaul's Drag Race experience?   Since we filmed during a pandemic, my favorite moments when thinking of my RuPauls drag race experience would have to be about relationships I made with the other queens. Being able to interact and bond with such amazing artists at a time where we could even leave the house outside of set was insane and made us all cherish every single moment.     How did RuPaul's Drag Race affect your career?   RuPauls Drag Race changed my life and career forever in so many ways. I will never give up the art of makeup but for now I was honored to have my own personal artistry shown of the biggest drag stage in the world and I’m ready to show what I can do even more than the world saw on the show. I am forever thankful to RuPaul, World of Wonder, and VH1 for giving me this opportunity and I’m ready to push my artistry to the next level.      What are your next steps and plans?   My next steps are to stay true to myself, work harder than I ever have before, take every opportunity that comes my way, and fight for my community. I was able to open a few doors for trans and non binary people by being a voice on RuPauls drag race and I want to keep that momentum going and keep elevating queer and trans people as much as I can always.      Did your fashion style develop or change throughout that period? And if so why?    My fashion style definitely stayed true to me, but seeing myself on tv really helped me understand and physically see what I need to refine and level up. I am always ready to learn and have an open mind towards my art so I can’t wait to keep pushing my art to the highest level I can possibly imagine!     Team credits:  Photo : Jack Waterlot @jackwaterlotstudio  Talent: Gottmik Stylist : Karen Levitt @karenlevittstylist  Hair by Tracy Moyer @tracymoyerhair@therexagency Nails by Erin Moffett @artdeptagency  Fashion director: Lisa Jarvis @lisajarvis_stylist  Casting: Timotej Letonja @timiletonja  Photo assistants: Shane Rooney Production assistant: Allison Nguyen We had a delight speaking with Kade Gottlieb AKA Gottmik.       Who are you and what is your profession?   Hi!
