Blending old and new, iconic and innovative, Garrett Leight California Optical brings a fresh perspective to classically tailored eyewear.

NI NI AND KAI | GUCCI

NI NI AND KAI STAR IN THE GUCCI EYEWEAR ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN FOR SPRING SUMMER 2020 SHOT BY HARMONY KORINE

For its new Spring Summer eyewear advertising campaign, Gucci moved to the Amoeba Music Hollywood store in Los Angeles to pay homage to that staple of American ‘80s teen movies, the record and VHS rental store. Creative Director Alessandro Michele mines the colourful neon- lit setting of this archetypal hangout for youth culture to showcase the spirit of individuality. In this new campaign, the browsing customers suggest many narratives, and in their attitude of proud freedom speak of Gucci’s desire to encourage self-expression.

Chinese actress and brand ambassador Ni Ni stars once again in the House eyewear advertising campaign, and is joined for the second time by Kai, the South Korean singer, actor and dancer, member of the EXO boy band, and global male ambassador for Gucci eyewear. Models Delphi McNicol, Azu Nwogu and Jana Jonckheere also appear in the campaign.

Shot by cult filmmaker and photographer Harmony Korine, the campaign presents candid portraits – in still and moving images – of individuals or couples within the rich setting of the record store with its stacks and shelves of vinyl, tapes, CDs and videos. The emphasis is on close-up crops that bring the eyewear to the fore – both Gucci optical glasses and sunglasses – while the busy and vibrant background, alive with pop-culture graphics, suggests the energy and excitement of the retro music scene. The film also pays homage to those days when the local record shop or video exchange would be a social nexus, with the narrative plot showing customers meeting up in the store and trying on the glasses, while browsing the tapes and CDs.

DIESEL 2020

DIESEL榮幸發布2020春季系列,該系列以DIESEL經典歷史收藏品為主要創作靈感,並以兩部分呈現:第一部分重新演繹了DIESEL 90年代產品系列中的工裝設計風格;後一部分則從時尚衣飾過渡到充斥著地下文化的迷幻圖案—— 不論是局部紮染,還是滿佈的迷幻印花,皆完美呈現出本季宣的“致力工作,放肆享樂”的不羈人生態度。

實用主義元素,如工裝衣袖上的鮮橙色預警標籤或皮夾克上拼色仿製標籤,清晰又亮眼。以層次穿搭為核心搭配理念,突出的金屬元素,一如工匠手中閃閃發亮的工具。色調和諧統一的迷彩印花,令人難忘;其中,黑色連帽衛衣及金屬風橄欖綠MA-1飛行員夾克則是該系列的重點單品。重新演繹的複古面料,經由現代工藝處理,更具潮流特色。其他必備單品,包括:軍事風和運動風完美相融的連帽飛行員夾克及機車夾克、並備有一系列運用相同設計及工藝製作的男女衣飾,使用了實用主義為核心,並以工裝為創作基礎的上衣、配有可調節的及腰前置口袋和工裝口袋的短裙及長褲。

本季的工裝風格單品中,更有寓意為“第二人生”的6件創新單品:這些局部細節看似相識的單品,取用了本季具代表性的常用縫製拼接元素而成;例如,將一件夾克的口袋疊加縫製在另一件之上,以此創造一件全新的飛行員夾克。 “第二人生”的創作概念源自“轉化與演變”,部分單品更可以多種方式穿著,如可拆卸的袖子或褲腿。該系列女裝含一件Tee、一件飛行員夾克和一條長褲;男裝則包括一件運動衫,一件飛行員夾克和一件Tee

DIESEL 2020春季系列的第二部分則更具視覺衝擊力:由DIESEL的主場派對裝扮開啟,為日常高腰牛仔褲及超大號上賦予全新剪。無論是局部紮染、滿的印花圖案及奇幻色彩過渡到對比鮮明的黑白色調,皆釋放著迷幻的視覺效果。

其中一款印花的設計靈感取自經典搖滾塗鴉的圖案,拼於懷舊畫布上,兩個印花圖案的反差充滿惡作劇意味;並以激光打印技以手繪風形式呈現在DIESEL經典的5袋牛仔褲上,極具DIY精神。

提到DIESEL不朽的核心丹寧單品,不論是DIESEL的經典丹寧款式,還是JoggJeans,大膽的撞色運用是本季丹寧系列的焦點。經撕裂再修補的特殊工藝處理,線條清晰明亮,空間和層次感亦有提升。傑出的撞色組合包括:白色丹寧與粉色內襯、藍色與紅色、黑色與黃色等眾多選擇。女性款式亦更多選用乾淨、復古的水洗設計。此外,工裝丹寧系列則包含長裙、短裙、長褲、短褲;部分單品更經特殊處理,配以珍珠般的柔亮塗層。白色丹寧面料上飾以黑色或螢光色印花,或是白色面料上印製的黑色印花,高反差色調組合碰撞,別具一格。更有極致之選 —— 不同色彩與面料質感相互拼接,完美體現出本季最具前瞻性的實驗設計單品。最後,部分單品還採用了一種名為“DIVINE COMEDY”的全新處理工藝,僅使用兩種色彩將印花激光打印在丹寧面料上,效果和諧又亮眼。

實用主義的核心理念亦延伸至本季配飾中,適用於多種場合穿著的多色運動鞋履及輕便易攜的隨身袋,不失玩味與視覺衝擊。

DIOR HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE

A new Dior Homme is born.

A new, intensely woody Eau de Toilette by François Demachy.

Masculine sensuality is reinvented with Robert Pattinson in a mesmerizing new film.

I’M YOUR MAN

If you want another kind of love…

DIOR – HOMME

A perfume – And a man to go with it.

Spellbinding, stylish and sophisticated.

STOP: What does it even mean to be a man today?

Everything is changing, everything is shifting.

Dior Homme asks this question with strength and determination precisely because he is a “Dior man.”

His answer is clear, straightforward, and sensual: “I’M YOUR MAN”

Like Leonard Cohen, he proclaims his feelings and accepts his emotions.

 

A direct, clear-cut perfume.

Yet one that is also tender and facetted.

In his image.

The new Dior Homme is a declaration of reinvented sensuality;

A strong, extremely woody sensation with a caress of spices.

A confident scent, very present, yet decidedly open.

A new, masculine sensuality that redefines itself with an overdose of wood that is both rough and smooth.

Like a block of intensity, albeit one that claims a tenacious and luminous freshness.

“This new Dior Homme has an obviously virile signature. Which doesn’t prevent it from developing tender, sensual aspects. In the end, it came down to creating a portrait of modern man.”

François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator

Dior Homme Eau de Toilette HK$590/50ml ; HK$820/100ml
