Maje SS19

For its 2019 Spring/Summer campaign, Maje is once again working with a young photographer with an assured fashion sense: Oliver Hadlee Pearch. His photographs of Grace Hartzel show a young Parisian constantly on the move and free from the cares of the city.

More than a series of images, they inspire us to fly away. Maje’s 2019 Spring/Summer campaign launches a new theme. A woman who dreams of being «On Tour», a citizen of the world who goes in search of the unknown and unexpected encounters – sometimes with herself. Between Paris and infinity, we try to seek the subtle balance of «here and away» to awaken our soul, and not lose ourselves in the hustle and bustle of city life.

As you run around Paris you find yourself dreaming of elsewhere, a place where you are free, unrestrained and unhindered. A place where nothing is planned and where everything is possible: palm trees invade Paris, and exotic flowers push through the tarmac and cobblestones. The colours of the world are there to enjoy. Another version of Paris, an unforgettable version. And your body soon begins to vibrate. Carried away by the memory of a delicious sense of freedom, a summer far from everything, your feet in the water, somewhere between land and sea, as you watch the last rays of the setting sun.

 

CHANEL | Fall-Winter 2019/20

Peaks as far as the eye can see, a street and snow-topped chalets. This season, the Grand Palais is transformed into a peaceful mountain village to welcome the CHANEL Fall-Winter 2019/20 Ready-to-Wear collection. A metamorphosis imagined by Karl Lagerfeld and Virginie Viard, in the atmosphere of a beautiful winter’s day, in the grand nave, a place so dear to the House.

Wearing brogans enhanced with a platform sole, protected beneath tweed fedoras, the elegant mountain dwellers seize the spirit of romantic dandies as they walk through the powdery snow. Created by Karl Lagerfeld and Virginie Viard, the silhouettes of the collection are warmed by a wardrobe marked with masculine/feminine accents, a major stamp of the CHANEL style. A palette of winter white, beige, black and navy blue is punctuated with flashes of purple, fuchsia, brick and emerald green.

With houndstooth, tartan and big check motifs, a dusting of snowflakes, in chevrons or imitating astrakhan, top stitched and quilted, tweed displays its masculinity on suits with wide-cut trousers worn high at the waist, coupled with great overcoats. Fastened with a high collar or a shawl collar and mini cape, enhanced with a trompe-l’œil bolero or a faux fur lapel, sometimes embellished with martingales, straight or double-breasted, trapeze or belted, maxi pockets slit or buttoned and folded down, the coats are different every time.
The tweed jackets are trimmed with a thick wool braid, woven or left almost raw. Others reveal a flared collar and a trompe-l’œil bolero. The big soft knit pullovers alternate with sweaters embroidered with crystals and cardigans with mountain motifs. Ski outfits are mixed with urban wear: a down jacket is sported with wide-cut trousers in big check tweed, while a zip-up ski-suit comes in tri-colour tweed. Braided or adorned with a patch pocket to slip in a ski-pass, little tweed jackets are combined with a pencil skirt, and an outfit of over-jacket and wide-cut trousers in leather.

Knitted scarves in embroidered chiffon worn against bare skin, big blouses with jabots, sautoir necklaces of chains and glass beads, plastron necklaces and white pearl earrings … there’s a great softness about the collection. The desire for sophisticated comfort emanates from the silhouettes. A very feminine delicacy escapes from these maxi enveloping volumes. It flows over second skin tops, skirts and dresses in white chiffon printed with mini skiers and CC chairlifts, with scalloped collars and flounces that float to the rhythm of the body’s movements. Romanticism abounds with the great capes in wool, the dresses with Claudine collars and tiers of rounded panels, the skirts in snowy guipure lace and the white tuxedos in duchess satin. Finally, the “snow-ball” skirts and dresses in chiffon and feathers with the bust embroidered with snowflakes in white and gold vinyl, distil the modernity, youth and dash of humour that characterise the CHANEL woman.

The bags match the tones of a season in the mountains: in black or white smooth quilted leather, supple in quilted tweed with a double C clasp interlaced with leather, a flap in faux fur or a camera case in braided shearling. Removable purses are attached to small bags with shoulder straps. Hip bags in faux fur or leather embroidered with glossy camellias alternate with gondola lift minaudières in rhinestoned resin. The emblematic bags of the House joyfully slalom between the chalet spirit for the CHANEL’s GABRIELLE bag in leather and fluffy checked tweed, a frosted inspiration for the 11.12 embroidered with sequins, and its all schuss energy for the 2.55 in neon orange quilted leather.

Eternal and constantly renewed, identifiable and yet different every time, the allure of CHANEL illuminates winter with its daring and dazzling freshness.

The CHANEL ambassadors Penélope Cruz, Kristen Stewart, Ellie Bamber, Anna Mouglalis, Nana Komatsu, Ann Hsu, Alma Jodorowsky, Marine Vacth, Gwei Lun-Mei, Victoria Song, Jennie Kim, Caroline de Maigret and Liu Wen, the actresses Marion Cotillard, Céline Sallette, Virgine Ledoyen and Monica Bellucci, the models Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell, and the American singer Janelle Monae as well as the singers Eddy de Pretto and Sebastien Tellier attended the CHANEL Fall-Winter 2019/20 Ready-to-Wear show this Tuesday March 5th 2019 at the Grand Palais.

Longchamp SS19 Advertising Campaign

For her second season as the face of Longchamp, American supermodel Kendall Jenner is photographed by Mikael Jansson for the House’s Spring/Summer 2019 advertising campaign.


The visuals capture the energy and sensuality of Longchamp’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection, which was shown at New York Fashion Week last September. In designing the collection, Longchamp Creative Director Sophie Delafontaine was inspired by Seventies glamour, and her vibrant silhouettes, fusing Parisian elegance with a laidback Californian vibe, paid tribute to style icons Veruschka and Anita Pallenberg.

This is an attitude that comes naturally to California-born Kendall Jenner, who models the collection’s sheer animal prints, ikat motif, fringed suede jackets and gladiator sandals in a series  of single and double-page spreads conceived in the spirit of a fashion editorial.Capturing Kendall in dynamic poses, Mikael Jansson makes full use of the collection’s statement fringes to evoke the energy and freedom that are fundamental to the active Longchamp woman. The other star of the campaign is the Amazone bag in padded red leather, which Kendall wears cross-body on a leopard-print shoulder strap, while other visuals feature the extravagant fringed and python-styled versions shown on the runway.


The Longchamp Spring/Summer 2019 print campaign with Kendall Jenner, comprising a variety of outdoor formats in addition to press, will break worldwide from February 2019.

Jimmy Choo | Kaia Gerber

New ETRO Campaign

Symbols acquire new meaing and multicultural elements come to life in the urban atmosphere of a Berlin square, a space on the border between reality and the imagination. The Autumn/Winter 2017-2018 Women’s and Men’s collections, presented through Juergen Teller’s photographs, combine different prints and fabrics as an explosion of colour and patterns.

This season, the ETRO woman wears oversized outerwear and dresses with Paisley and flower patterns, rich in details with colourful ribbons and hems.

Accessories strike a balance between folk and urban style. ETRO’s Rainbow Colour Bag is the protagonist of the season, celebrating the power of colour through a combination of creative geometric patchwork, inspired by the Himalayas.

The Men’s collection presents sophisticated suits, made from superlight and uniquely tactile tartan fabrics. Iconic elements are combined with contemporary details, utilizing the entire spectrum and shades of blue.

BALLY Brings Back Retro Sneakers at Pitti Uomo

Swiss luxury brand Bally will be present at Pitti Uomo for the first time this June, launching its Spring Summer ’18 retro sneaker collection.

Bringing back the magic with the revival of its best sneaker styles over the past decades, Bally’s retro sneaker collection includes four replications of its most successful lace ups, from hip-hop era classics to smashing tennis shoes and sporty runners.

Bally Sneakers rose to recognition in the mid-1980s among rappers on the hip-hop scene. Doug E. Fresh wore a pair on his 1986 album cover Oh, My God!, and long before musicians were calling out other sneaker brands in their lyrics, Slick Rick shouts out he’s wearing ‘Bally shoes and fly green socks’. One of the four styles that have been replicated, the Competition has been produced with the same shape, lining and sole as the original shoe from the 80s. The replica will be presented alongside four additional derivations, exclusively for Pitti Uomo, in Kodak, garnet, marine and snuff.

Sport shoes were a big part of Bally’s DNA as far back as the 1960s when the brand launched its Super Smash series of tennis shoes. Reissued with a vulcanised sole and the same Bally logo on the side, the canvas shoes are available as replicas as well as three new derivations, in both hi and low top styles, and as full leather versions.

Bally’s Galaxy runner, a shoe originally created for utility in 1988, has also been reissued and is now Bally’s lightest sneaker, crafted in canvas with suede detail. The original model in garnet has been reproduced alongside two new versions in Kodak and black, with the original running sole.

The 1974 Vita-Parcours completes the collection, with original identifiable black and white check pattern and produced with a modernised sneaker sole, used in Bally’s Heimberg collection. A more urban shoe, the sneaker comes in its original form and three additional fabrications for men.

Bally’s retro sneaker collection is available in stores and online from January 2018 onwards.
