“THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HEAVENLY CREATURES”

Spring/Summer 2017 Men and Women Collections For Spring-Summer 2017 we immerse ourselves in beautiful natural habitats – from high and dry desert to lush, flora- filled rainforest. We see these natural terrains through the eyes of the habitats’ creatures – creating crazy wild proportions: Botanical patterns and animal prints transform into micro and exploded versions. The metallic beauty of beetles inspiring a shimmering layer you can’t miss. We also draw on our favourite artists’ impressions of this natural beauty. Like Henri Rousseau, who painted the exotic of the jungle without ever having seen it. We adopt his naïve, two-dimensional, flora- ooded lens. We begin Spring in a world of greens and sun-cast-on-rain metallics. Treks into high summer habitats immerse our collection in more colour – from dirt-washed pastels to vivid toxic-warning brights. This season Scotch & Soda also introduce a beach capsule: Five white pieces edged with sweet geo embroideries and French taping for swift summer time-outs

GIVENCHY BY RICCARDO TISCI

For Spring-Summer 2017, Givenchy is launching a campaign using its most classic codes. Between strong women and men whose intrepid natures withstand space and time, the new Givenchy campaign, designed as a double page spread with images that echo and complement each other, demonstrates the principle of duality at the heart of Givenchy’s DNA.

Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the campaign blends masculine and feminine, classic and chic allures, alongside this season’s Horizon and Cross Body bags. Using this mirror image, two girl models become twins by dressing identically, a mark of recognition of the Givenchy tribe; the same boy duplicates himself and changes personality by adopting a formal and a streetwear look.

The closely cropped portraits of strong personalities of the Givenchy gang contrast with the images of pairs of youths in a Martian landscape, that references up the adventurous spirit of the brand.

GET THE AWESOME GIGI BOOTS

Gigi gives us the boot! This fall, Stuart Weitzman has collaborated with Gigi Hadid, the face of the Fall 2016 ad campaign, on an exclusive design for the brand — the Gigi Boot. The hiker-inspired high heel combat bootie was co-designed by the social supermodel and reflects her sleek street style and fashion-forward flair.

Hadid was inspired by the brand’s stellar boot reputation, but used her creative vision to put a unique, personal spin on the lace-up bootie silhouette. The Gigi Boot is set on a stacked heel, boasts bold metallic eyelets accented by duo-toned laces designed to wrap around the ankle and is finished with a detailed collar. The bootie is available in three materials, so there are multiple options for her style squad: a classic-yet-modern nero soft croco-calf leather and two shiny chic metallics, including iron specchio and copper glass. The bootie comes in a signature Gigi Hadid box and is available exclusively at Stuart Weitzman retail locations and global websites. The retail price is HKD 6200 for the metallic styles and HKD 6650 for the nero soft croco-calf version.

“This experience has been such a thrill, from choosing the style to selecting materials to creating the signature box. I am so excited to finally share these boots and be able to wear them myself!  I’m so proud to be a spokesperson for Stuart Weitzman, not only because I’m the biggest fan of the shoes, but also because of all they do to give back. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to further my partnership with Stuart Weitzman than to get creative, and am so happy to know the boots I designed will be helping kids through the non-profit organization, Pencils of Promise. I’m truly proud of this collaboration from all angles,” said Gigi Hadid.

A short film directed by James Franco and starring Hadid, titled #doitright, will kick off the Gigi Boot’s global retail debut on www.stuartweitzman.hk. Shot at Brooklyn’s iconic Gleason’s Gym, the dynamic film features Gigi as “the champ,” as she jabs and moves around the boxing ring, dominating every opponent – all while wearing the Gigi Boot. Art imitates life in the film, as the boxing concept was inspired by Hadid’s real-life workout regimen – and, like the global advertising campaign, it captures her power, agility and gracefulness. The energetic visuals are enhanced by the upbeat soundtrack “Do It Right” by Martin Solveig and Tkay Maidza.

The Gigi Boot not only looks amazing, but helps do amazing things. Her design is a celebration of the Stuart Weitzman partnership with Pencils of Promise, a financial commitment this fall 2016 season to build three schools: one each in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos. With a focus on creating quality elementary education programs within the rural regions of developing nations, the Stuart Weitzman and PoP partnership takes a step closer to the vision that every child has the basic right to education.

Berluti for KRUG

RESTYLING BERLUTI’S EMBLEMATIC UN JOUR BRIEFCASE for KRUG

For late 2016, Berluti and Krug are embarking on the next chapter of their collaboration by creating two exclusive, limited-edition bags with only 100 numbered examples available: Short Journey and Long Journey. Drawing their inspiration from Berluti’s emblematic Un Jour briefcase, these bags have been designed as exclusive accessories for collectors

and Krug Lovers alike. The dual-purpose bags, which are Champagne carriers for transporting bottles of Krug and Joseph glasses, or travel bags for carrying Berluti shoes, also stand out by virtue of their exclusive dark cherry patina, which lends them a deep gloss.

Both bags feature an outer zip pocket with a patinated Venezia leather zip-pull. The interior is lined with « grigio topo » micro ber and the signature « Berluti pour Krug »

features inside and out. Included is also a bag charm reproducing the iconic shape of a bottle of Krug Champagne.

The small design, Short Journey, features three removable compartments in a bag supplied with a bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée accompanied by two Joseph glasses in a annel pouch signed « Berluti pour Krug ». This small bag can also hold a pair of Berluti shoes and a shoe care kit. *

The large design, Long Journey, features six removable compartments in a bag supplied with a bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée and one of Krug Rosé, accompanied by four Joseph glasses, also presented in a annel pouch. This large-format bag can also hold up to three pairs of Berluti shoes. *

“YOU’VE GOT TO CLIMB MOUNT EVEREST TO REACH THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS”

JACQUELINE SUSANN

Way before Barbie there were paper dolls: 2D, hand-drawn mannequins delivered on the page with their own illustrated wardrobes. For his Spring Summer 2017 Moschino collection, Jeremy Scott finds inspiration in this original game of cut and paste for girls of taste.

Plus to muster that sweet, hard rush of insta-gratification for this season’s instantly-shoppable offering, Scott turns to another genre of ‘Dolls’ – as Jacqueline Susann termed them in her scandalous novel of 1966. It’s a capsule collection with a powerful dose of capsules.

Deploying trompe l’oeil detailing, angled illustrative flourish, and a first-look ’til last-look motif that echoes the white tabs of the original paper dolls, the collection is a Moschino-flavoured reverie on the ceremony of personal facade. It begins with a spaghetti strapped, slimly fitted shift dress that suddenly furls mid-calf to echo the foldable stand of the original paper dolls: its front is illustrated to make the wearer seem deshabille, in black bra and panties. She is the template, ready to be outfitted.

Early looks echo the joyous source code of the house’s creator: Franco Moschino’s signature black on red polka dot, his chains, that peace sign, those teddy bears. But those pearls are flattened panels, that bling is painted on, and those bears ain’t there. Whimsically subversive agit-chic. Dada-touched irreverence. A sly examination of stereotype that extends to the set: the gold chairs with red-velvet cushions, an intimate, half- raised, red-carpeted runway. A boldly old school reset.

What you see and what you get are never in sync. An apparently half shrugged-on trench coat, with a wickedly manicured hand just visible at its lapel, is nothing of the sort. What is ostensibly a capelet in pastel paint-by-numbers floral that seems to balloon below it certainly isn’t. Keep looking.

Scott takes a trip. Hoodies and sweats, quilted and chain-strewn leather minis, faux-kini bodies, Daisy Duke fishnet leggings, bikers and bombers, logo sportswear, washed denim: is this the real life, or just fantasy? The capsule of capsule strewn handbags, backpacks and dresses – plus a prescription pillbox clutch – hints at escape from reality.

The finale is a procession of augmented unreality eveningwear. Ruche and swoosh and swirl frozen in a 2D moment, yet 3D real. An interplay of true and skewed. From the front, a sugary hit of colour and flounce given hyper-real definition though illustrative steroid. From the back though, a blank. Paper dolls.
