CHANEL proudly reveals the new face of J12 actress Margot Robbie

Watches Everything has always been about seconds for a House created by a woman who knew how to follow her instincts. The instinct of the moment when everything is decided.     Whether it is the longest second of a lifetime on the day of an important decision, or preparing a soft-boiled egg with perfect culinary precision, catching an airplane or missing a taxi, our existence is a succession of milestones that are of no coincidence.     The J12 is the watch for these milestones, and the perfect accompaniment for every second. In this campaign for the most iconic CHANEL watch, nine iconic women share their personal experiences about a second that changed their lives.     Everything is a story of seconds for a woman who is in touch with her life and with this intimate timepiece that can shape destiny in a few seconds. The J12 is the watch for this woman.     In 2021, Margot Robbie joins the faces of the iconic CHANEL J12 watch campaign initiated in 2019.     “It feels incredibly special to be alongside such inspiring women in this campaign. Embodying the J12 watch to me is acknowledging and appreciating time.“     #J12 #ItsAllAboutSeconds #CHANELWatches Everything has always been about seconds for a House created by a woman who knew how to follow her instincts.

The long awaited Heron Preston for Calvin Klein is here with a major campaign shot by Renell Medrano

The long awaited Heron Preston for Calvin Klein is here with a major campaign shot by Renell Medrano

Fashion Through a shared vision, Heron Preston and Calvin Klein created a collection for real people. Preston came in as a creative consultant, first examining what he considered the brand’s most necessary and iconic pieces: the underwear, the white shirt, and expanded from there, remaining firmly within the guardrails of what is essential - no more, no less.     Preston says, “This goes beyond just a normal collaboration. I call it a collaboration 2.0., as the work we did, and how we did it, goes beyond just product design and placement. We tried to reshape and develop a new business language, while still fully embracing and respecting Calvin Klein’s culture, experience and history.”     “Working with Heron was such a perfect place to start. He sits at the crossroads of culture, interconnecting various disciplines - threading ways between youth and creativity. His modern way of thinking, and his approach to design and sustainability are very much aligned to the Calvin Klein brand. Heron brought a level of integrity to this collaboration, one that goes beyond the hype and actually wants to change from the inside out and influence the product,” says Jordan.       ABOUT THE NEW COLLECTION:     This collection serves as a minimalist canvas for creative exploration. The clothes come alive when worn by different people. It is a collection of pieces which are essential, but not generic. It is an elevation of baseline pieces that can be incorporated into any style. True to both the Calvin Klein brand DNA and Preston’s personal approach to design, the collection carries a unisex approach, Preston’s storytelling around essentials focuses on the pursuit of simplicity, revisiting styles and obsessing over details, always incorporating something new. A plain white t-shirt gets gussets under the armpits. Pieces are finished with raised ribbing and stitching that almost looks 3D. There is a special interior and exterior branding element to this collection. It is all about using familiar things in unfamiliar.     "The collection is so clean and sharp yet with amazing shapes and variety of cool colors such as ocean blue, orange, red and of course white, beige, grey etc. Definitely plenty of must-have pieces in the collection." We especially love that the collection was developed with close attention to environmental consciousness and more sustainable practices, a critical element to both Preston and Calvin Klein. All options were carefully considered: raw denim is used to save water, organic and recycled cotton are heavily featured, and packaging is plastic- free.        ABOUT THE BEAUTIFUL CAMPAIGN:      The campaign celebrates the raw and youthful spirit at the core of Calvin Klein’s brand identity and globally-recognized aesthetic. It is about capturing personality in natural moments and showcasing the lived experience of the clothing. The campaign takes an organic approach and features a diverse cast from Preston’s close circle and people who inspire him. From icons such as Nas and Stevie Williams to newcomers Jordan Alexander and Sabrina Fuentes, Calvin Klein continues its tradition of both seeking out emerging talent and fresh faces, to showcasing legendary figures reverberating the brand’s aesthetic and cultural attitude.       Explore more abut the new collection which is now available and campaign here:  https://www.calvinklein.nl   Through a shared vision, Heron Preston and Calvin Klein created a collection for real people.

LACOSTE PRESENTS THE NEW CAMPAIGN "CROCODILES PLAY COLLECTIVE"

LACOSTE PRESENTS THE NEW CAMPAIGN "CROCODILES PLAY COLLECTIVE"

Fashion Moving freely and connecting different cultures are the special powers of the crocodile, the iconic emblem of the Lacoste brand. Since 1933, it has transcended time, styles and genres. It has no borders. In continuous movement, it reinvents itself in collaboration with those who wear it, capable of embracing all nuances, regardless of the era. Its playground has no limits, it is open to all and welcomes every type of character. The result is an infinite palette of encounters which find harmony in their contrasts. It celebrates the beauty of the game of life when our differences come together creatively.     This is the story that Lacoste wants to share. To go further, together. Our differences, once united, make us richer and stronger. The elegance of the collective and life.     THE POLO SHIRT AS COMMON DENOMINATOR     It is time to embrace and celebrate the differences that bring us together. We do this here with a cast of seven passionate, talented creatives. They wear polo shirts with a sense of elegance that is their own. They are captured in their cities, in the surroundings that inspire them daily. Five cities (Paris, New York, Berlin, Los Angeles, London) and seven photographers, to conjure multiple points of view.   A classic monotone or in full color, fitted or oversized, new or vintage, store bought or passed down through generations, the Lacoste polo shirt becomes the common denominator of those who share the values of the crocodile. This emblematic object becomes a platform of expression that allows you to tell your story.       SEVEN AMBASSADORS, SEVEN PHOTOGRAPHERS, ONE STORY     This spring, Lacoste is unveiling a campaign representative of the diversity that has always epitomized the brand. It is not one single ambassador, but seven creative people from all over the world, who are shaping the image of the brand. A$AP Nast, Peggy Gou, Evan Mock, Louise Bourgoin, Sonny Hall, Mélanie Thierry and Salif Gueye. Shot in their home cities, alongside their close circles of friends and family, by a creative team of their own choice, collectively personifying the crocodile in their own way. A way to celebrate the mythical agility of the Lacoste polo shirt, but also to underline the unifying and collective power of Lacoste.     In Los Angeles, rapper and Lacoste fan A$AP Nast invites his friends DJAVAN and Cory before the lens of photographer Melodie McDaniel. Tattooed on his chest or embroidered on his polo shirts, the performer "always carries the spirit of the crocodile.”     Over in Berlin, DJ and entrepreneur Peggy Gou is immortalized by Vitali Gelwich, alongside her “closest friends, the family we choose.”     In New York, skater, actor and model Evan Mock brings together his brother, sister and a skateboarder friend for an intimate shoot with photographer Stef Mitchell. Four people "ambitious and always ready to pursue their dreams.”     Crossing over to the British capital, Elliot James Kennedy immortalizes the young poetSonny Hall and his entourage in a typical London atmosphere. For him, to be collective is to feel "connected.”     Whilst in Paris, the historical home of Lacoste, French actresses Louise Bourgoinand Mélanie Thierry are photographed with their loved ones by Quentin de Briey and Joshua Woods respectively. Salif Gueye, true to himself, dances in the streets of the French capital with three of his comrade dancers, before the lens of Ilyes Griyeb. For him, his collective is his "family.”     Seven faces, five cities, seven photographers ... for one story only: their own.

Vans Collaborates with Joel and Tosh Tudor for Collection That Blends Classic Style with a Look to the Future

Vans Collaborates with Joel and Tosh Tudor for Collection That Blends Classic Style with a Look to the Future

Accessories In a collaboration that bridges generations through its aesthetic, materials, and the riders who influenced it, Vans is proud to present the Vans x Tudor Collection, a footwear and apparel capsule that reflects the spirit of one of Vans’ most iconic surf families.    Marked by its vintage prints, retro lettering and classic style, the Vans x Tudor Collection reflects the aesthetic of Joel Tudor, a Vans team rider for almost 25 years, and his 14-year-old son Tosh. Whether they’re logging at Cardiff Reef in the summer or charging Pipeline in the winter, the two can often be found surfing together, their flowing and casual styles almost indistinguishable at times. The Vans x Tudor Collection captures their lifestyle, combining a retro San Diego color palette with classic Hawaiian vibes.   “It’s so cool to see where Tosh is in his career and work on these projects together with my son,” says Joel. “We’re both super stoked on how this collection turned out.”   The Vans x Tudor Collection features five footwear styles, led by the Chukka DX SF in java/turtledove. It was important to Joel that the collection include the Chukka, a shoe that was a huge part of his childhood. Playing off the traditional Chukka boot style, but with the functionality Vans loyalists have come to rely on, the Chukka features an all-canvas upper with contrast stitching and retro lettering on the midsole that Joel himself designed. “I’ve been obsessed with the lettering and fonts of the psychedelic rock posters of the late 1960’s for as long as I can remember,” Joel says. “Wes Wilson, Bonnie Maclean, there’s so many great artists.  I developed my own style after years of studying them earlier on.”   The Chukka DX, along with the other closed-toe footwear in the collection, also features a cork-lined, removable UltraCush Lite footbed for elevated comfort and support.     Also key to the footwear collection is the UltraCush Slide-On. Taking its cues from Vans’ iconic Slip-On style, this slide sandal features contrast stitching on the synthetic nubuck strap, reminiscent of the Slip-On’s distinctive tongue. The Slide-On comes in java with turtledove contrast stitching and a printed lining.      The Sk8-Low Reissue SF, Authentic SF and Nexpa Synthetic sandal in the same versatile colorway complete the footwear collection. The Sk8-Low features a suede and canvas upper with contrast stitching and midsole lettering, while Joel’s artwork covers the all-canvas Authentic’s upper. The sandal’s UltraCush footbed ensures all-day comfort, while interior strap artwork provides a touch of intrigue.     Leading the apparel collection is the Vans x Tudors SS Woven, a breezy button-up featuring 20% organic linen and 80% cotton and the Vans x Tudors retro lettering logo on the chest pocket. Combining understated colors with funky florals, the SS Woven embodies the Tudors’ classic and laidback approach to surfing as a way of life and pays homage to the Hawaiian shirt. “The Hawaiian shirt has always been a staple piece of clothing for me,” says Joel. “You can wear them for any occasion.”     The Tudor Floral allover print is also featured on the Vans x Tudors Boardshort, a 100% polyester short with lace-up waist, Vans woven label on left side seam and a right rear pocket with button and flap. The classic aesthetic carries through in the above-the-knee 17” outseam.   Rounding out the apparel collection are the Vans x Tudor LS and SS cotton tees, made from 100% cotton and featuring Joel’s own retro lettering artwork. The LS, in antique white, and SS in saffron, carry on the subtle, faded color palette influenced by the Tudors’ Southern California roots.    As part of the Vans team since 1997, two-time World Longboard Champion Joel Tudor is synonymous with Vans surfing and his son Tosh is carrying the torch while making his own mark on surf style and culture. Joel’s passion for surf history and classic longboarding, combined with Tosh’s love for art, music and design, combine to make a collection of apparel and footwear that is for the surfer whose love for riding waves is not just a hobby but a way of life.   The Vans x Tudor LTD collection is available now at authorized retailers and Vans.eu/surf.

Artist Thirza Schaap publishes her first Plastic Ocean book

Photography Amsterdam artist Thirza Schaap came to Capetown in 2012, where she was struck by the vast amounts of plastic waste on the beaches. This kicked off her now renowned project Plastic Ocean.      Schaap scoured the beaches looking for plastic waste that never stops washing upon the shores.  Back home, she transformed the seemingly meaningless items into the most beautiful sculptured still life objects. By photographing these sculptures and creating paradoxical images, she hopes to invoke an emotional reaction with the audience. A collision between the initial aesthetic appeal and the second glance: repulsion and the realisation that this waste leads to such tragic consequences.     “It bothered me that just photographing the washed-up, weathered plastic finds never managed to reflect the beauty of their colours and textures. - Thirza Schaap     Schaap hopes that her first book Plastic Ocean will create a must wider awareness when it comes to pollution and that it helps to counter the use of plastic. World-renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort, who was one of the first people to report about Plastic Ocean, was happy to write the preface.      The book will be available at selected bookshops by the end of April 2021 and can be pre-ordered from today via 1605 Publishers.com.
