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

Dior Winter 2020-2021 Men’s Collection

– Grooming Backstage by Peter Philips

FOR THE NEW WINTER 2020-2021 MEN’S COLLECTION BY DIOR DESIGNED BY KIM JONES AS A TRIBUTE TO JUDY BLAME, PETER PHILIPS MADE EYES THE FOCAL POINT BY TRANSFORMING AN EVERYDAY OBJECT INTO AN ACCESSORY, WHICH WAS A SIGNATURE OF THE ICONIC LONDON ARTIST.

@peterphilipsmakeup

PETER PHILIPS FIRST DESCRIBES A NATURAL GROOMING LOOK: “FOR PERFECTLY PREPARED SKIN, I FOLLOWED THE ENTIRE DIOR HOMME DERMO SYSTEM ROUTINE BY APPLYING THE SOOTHING AFTER-SHAVE LOTION FOLLOWED BY THE INVIGORATING MOISTURIZING EMULSION, THE PORE CONTROL PERFECTING ESSENCE AND THEN THE ANTI-FATIGUE FIRMING EYE SERUM.”

HE CONTINUES: “FOR A NATURAL, CLEAN, FLAWLESS FACE I USED DIOR BACKSTAGE FACE & BODY PRIMER, WHICH SMOOTHS AND BLURS IMPERFECTIONS AND THEN, DEPENDING ON SKIN TONE, I CHOSE THE APPROPRIATE SHADE OF DIOR BACKSTAGE FACE & BODY FOUNDATION. I USED THE NEW DIOR FOREVER SKIN CORRECT CONCEALER FOR TOUCH-UPS AND I FINISHED UP WITH A FEW LIGHT DABS OF FLASH LUMINIZER.”

NEXT PETER PHILIPS DESCRIBES “EYES THAT WERE THE STRONG POINT OF THE LOOK. HAVING STRUCTURED THE EYEBROWS WITH DIORSHOW BROW STYLER AND DIORSHOW PUMP ’N’ BROW, I GLUED A SMALL SILVER PRESS STUD AT THE INNER CORNER OF THE EYES, OR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LOWER EYELID, IN LINE WITH THE PUPIL, RIGHT AT THE LASH LINE. BY DOING THIS I WANTED TO CREATE A FOCAL POINT FOR LIGHT ON THE EYES, AND PAY TRIBUTE TO JUDY BLAME, WHO RECYCLED EVERYDAY OBJECTS SO BRILLIANTLY.

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River

Designed by award-winning architectural and interior design legend Jean-Michel Gathy, Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River is now accepting reservations for arrivals beginning early 2020. Jean-Michel Gathy, the mastermind behind the new spectacular riverfront hotel in the capital of Thailand, reveals his definitive interpretation to the interior and landscape design of the hotel – the dominance of water features blending successive indoor and outdoor spaces and integrating elegant touches of Thai influence throughout the design delivery.

Occupying 200 metres of pristine river frontage, exceptional design immerses focus into the natural riverfront landscape. Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River provides a unique environment for a superlative sensory guest experience within the environs of a luxury urban resort.  The hotel will also introduce modern meeting and function spaces, including a riverfront Grand Ballroom with expansive outdoor terrace; and world-class entertainment offerings along the hotel’s waterfront promenade featuring an array of restaurants and bars.

 

“The core challenge that drew me to this extraordinary project was the chance to craft the ultimate urban resort experience and at the same time to create an incomparable city hotel that would not only complement but also enhance its unique, expansive riverside location” comments Jean-Michel Gathy, founder and principle designer at the multiple-award winning firm Dennison.

 

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River’s 299 guest rooms including suites with garden terraces provide a warm and sophisticated welcome with their contemporary interiors and hand-selected furnishings, which combine with abundant natural light to provide a genuine sense of place along Bangkok’s riverfront.

 

The two-story Presidential Suite is the most lavish suite with three light-filled bedrooms, uninterrupted river views and ceilings that soar to twice the regular height. A rooftop terrace overlooks panoramic river views, a stunning backdrop for hosting events or simply relaxing in the private pool.

Encapsulating the essence of riverside experience

The Chao Phraya River embodies the spirit of Bangkok’s life on its banks and waters reflecting the colorful and dynamic nature of the intriguing city. Inspired by the majestic river, Jean-Michel Gathy infuses the energy, flow and movement into the design of the hotel to reflect the natural splendor of the location. Expressing the inherent fluidity of the water demanded far more than interior design touches in the lush and abundant outdoor landscapes.

 

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River’s cascading design and open spaces afford an array of views. Its riverside setting seamlessly unifies the natural beauty of Thailand with both the historic and modern aspects of the city of Bangkok for an urban resort vibe. High ceilings and glass walls provide breathing space, while pools and flowing water echo the constant movement of the Chao Phraya River.

 

Staying in tune with the urban resort concept, the peaceful hotel ambiance invites guests to feel instantly relaxed and at home. The hotel grounds are uniquely arranged around a series of cascading green courtyards, each one with its own distinctive but interconnected and related mood and points of interest. A combination of structural elements, trees, fountains, reflective ponds and materials are used to achieve subtle distinctions between them. A distinctive example can be seen at The Lounge where reeds are introduced into the design to create a soothing natural statement.

A seamless transition

Paying homage to the site’s culturally rich and vibrant Chao Phraya River, Jean-Michel Gathy seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor spaces, converging landscape together with interior design. Working closely with the architects and making the absolute best of the hotel’s generous proportions, Jean-Michel Gathy has enriched the stunning variety of volumes in the architectural design, while infusing a rare sense of seamless transitions between each of the hotel’s distinctive spaces.

 

Jean-Michel Gathy also adds: “In such a magnificent setting, transitions are paramount. Dramatic ceiling alignments, open arches, and the use of parallel exquisite materials within and outside the buildings all contribute to a defining sense of unity amid variety. The overall effect is supremely engaging yet also restful.”

 

Classy with a hint of Thai

“Bangkok is a truly engaging and incredible city that inspires me with its energy and rich heritage.” shares Jean-Michel Gathy who has also drawn on the inherent contrasts of locality, bringing a subtle approach to Thai influences which he describes as “Classy with a hint of Thai”. Jean-Michel Gathy integrates elegant touches of Thai influence into everything from the elevator frames, to fabrics and other intricacies.

 

Gentle tones and silk are selected and used for the interior to inspire a feeling of refined lightness and as a contemporary expression point and more importantly to inspire a feeling of Thai culture and values. When guests enter the tranquil grounds from Chareoenkrung Road, a nature-inspired welcome awaits before the atmosphere becomes grander in the interconnected courtyards.

 

A defining art collection by Jean-Michel Gathy

Thailand’s natural beauty and the city’s urbane charms come together in every aspect of the interiors, punctuated by a defining art collection curated by Jean-Michel Gathy himself. Celebrating the country’s legendary craftsmanship and artistry, a dedicated Art Space in the hotel showcases the talents of contemporary Thai artists along with individually commissioned art installations throughout public and private spaces, both indoors and outdoors.

 

Jean-Michel Gathy has thoughtfully imbued along the way, the luxury DNA of the legendary Four Seasons brand. Quality, sophistication and understated elegance prevail, all essential characteristics that perfectly encapsulate the prestige thoughtfully encapsulated at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River.

Fenty Beauty

MORE LIFT. MORE LENGTH. MORE LASHES.

THE DO-IT-ALL MASCARA THAT REVEALS ’EM ALL. 

Introducing Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara – The ultimate do-it-all mascara designed for full-on, fanned-out eye-opening lashes, featuring an exclusive flat-to-fat brush that instantly volumizes, lifts, lengthens & curls. 

FULL FRONTAL VOLUME, LIFT & CURL MASCARA

BUILDABLE VOLUME. EYE-OPENING LIFT & CURL. ULTIMATE LONGWEAR. EXCLUSIVE FLAT-TO-FAT BRUSH. ($208) 

Get full-on lashes like never before with Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara. Designed to deliver Rihanna’s full lash look, Full Frontal’s do-it-all formula is proven to volumize, lengthen, lift & curl lashes—exposing every little lash with eye-opening definition.

Full Frontal’s lightweight, ultra black formula was specifically paired with an exclusive flat-to-fat brush: The FAT side holds max product to quickly load and lift lashes; the FLAT side defines and curls. And thanks to the round, pointed tip, you can load up and reveal every little lash you never knew you had. We’re talking flat to fat… just like that.

Full Frontal builds easily, too, giving you plenty of playtime to layer, define, separate—whatever it is you need to do to create the look you want. And thanks to the longwear, water-resistant formula life- tested by Rihanna to stand up to smudging, sweat and tears, this mascara keeps up while you turn up, keeping lashes fully exposed from root to tip until you’re ready to wash it off.

How To: Use the FAT side to load and lift, wiggling at the base of your lashes to build volume. Use the FLAT side to comb through and define, curl, and separate. Use the pointed tip to coat the hardest-to- reach lashes in the inner corners. Layer as desired.

Artistry Pro Tips:

– For max volume, make sure the FAT side of the brush is fully loaded. Layer until you reach your desired effect.

– For max curl, use the FLAT side of the brush to push up lashes while coating them from root to tip.

– For max length, use the pointed tip of the brush and apply vertically, focusing on your lash ends.


Rihanna’s way: Rihanna loves to accentuate her eye shape with a fanned-out lash look. To achieve this, add extra layers to just the outer edges of your lashes while brushing them outward.
“I like to get every single little lash to expose them all. I wanted to make sure this mascara lets you do that. You get volume, lift, and curl all with one product and this amazing brush.”
– Rihanna

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara will be available starting January 16, 2020 at Sephora, Harvey Nichols, Beauty Bazaar, and Beauty Avenue.
