GCDS invites you to K-HAWAII!

K-Hawaii is GCDS’s modernized amalgamation of the word Kawaii (cute or adorable in Japanese) and Hawaii, one of the most beautiful places in the world, a tropical paradise rich with history. GCDS presents summertime seduction, where Kawaii is cute and at the same time sexy. This futuristic take on manga touches on the very concepts that formed the genre: a careful balance of suspense and humor, regulation versus fantasy, and idealized love featuring over-stylized and over-sexualized heroines.

Kawaii is represented by iconic pop symbols from The Care Bears to Hello Kitty, with vibrant colors and playful prints, all fused together by Anna Trevelyan’s styling. The juxtaposition of Jurassic Park (filmed in Hawaii) with Kawaii: cute but deadly. The same goes for our eyewear, expertly crafted by The Marcolin Group. GCDS began its partnership with the leading worldwide eyewear company who exclusively created iconic sunglass styles for the show: a perfect combination of irony, experimentation and streetstyle. Lastly, all our hair styling is arranged by Syd Hayes, and makeup by Erin Parson.
Manga seeks to represent certain aspirations in a particular society, cultural evolutions we strive to achieve. Self-identity and forced standards are morphing us into hentai manga characters rather than something realistic. Everything we see online today — filtering, makeup, and contouring — is exactly what you get from a K-Hawaii manga aesthetic: a sugar-coated candy character. Social media’s infinite scale and ubiquitous presence in daily life should lead us to seek the niche, and yet in some ways we become more homogenous, both culturally and aesthetically.
K-Hawaii represents this next evolution.

GCDS誠意邀請您加入K-HAWAII!

GCDS現代化融合了日語Kawaii (解作可愛) 及世界上最美麗的地方之一﹑歷史悠久的熱帶天堂夏威夷 Hawaii,而另組成K-Hawaii。本系列呈現夏季誘惑,既可愛又不失性感。充滿未來風格的漫畫形成了新的概念﹕懸念與幽默﹑規範與幻想之間的微妙平衡﹑以及過份程式化和性化女主角理想中的愛情。

Kawaii以經典角色The Care Bears和Hello Kitty為代表,Anna Trevelyan(英國著名造型師)把整個系列中鮮艷活力的色彩和俏皮玩味的印花等造型融合一起。 在夏威夷 (Hawaii) 拍攝的侏羅紀公園與Kawaii亦擁有相同的特點﹕可愛但足以致命。GCDS與全球領先的眼鏡公司Marcolin集團建立合作關係,採用相同的設計風格,專門為是次春夏時裝秀精心打造了一系列充滿諷刺﹑實驗和街頭風格的太陽眼鏡。而髮型及化妝則由Syd Hayes和Erin Parson負責。

我們致力追求社會上的文化改變﹑進化,這些願望都可在漫畫中找到,自我認同及強制性標籤正在將我們由真實的自我轉變成已變形的漫畫人物。現今在網上所看到的所有東西,包括各種濾鏡﹑化妝和人工塑造正是K-Hawaii的漫畫美學中所要表達的重點︰一個裹著糖衣徒有外表的漫畫形象。大規模及普及化的社交媒體應在日常生活中引導我們尋求合適的定位,然而無論是文化還是審美上,卻在某種程度讓我們變得同質化。

K-Hawaii代表著新的進化。

VERSACE EROS FLAME

Versace Eros Flame the new men’s fragrance, strikes you right through the heart.

It bears an important message for new generations about the dignity of love and the power of diversity.

Versace Eros Flame is a fragrance for a strong, passionate, self-confident man who is deeply in touch with his emotions.

He simultaneously perceives present feelings and savours the eternal scent of true love, transporting us from the real world to a mythological universe, the home of heroes who transform their imperfections into strengths.

The olfactory notes of Versace Eros Flame are characterised by strong contrasts in which the most noble and elegant ingredients enrich and enhance one another.

The head notes are particularly vivacious. Fresh, juicy Italian hesperidic fruits such as lemon, tangerine and bitter orange are warmed with notes of black pepper from Madagascar and enveloped in aromatic wild rosemary. Through an olfactory wave of pepperwood, geranium and rose facets, we reach the base notes where precious woods such as Texas cedar, patchouli coeur,

Haitian vetiver, mountain oak moss accord and sandalwood subtly blend to create a soft and sensuous roundness with the tonka bean that perfectly intermingles with vanilla.

Hermès Wood Marquetry

The Slim d’Hermès and Arceau watch lend themselves to a new expression of expertise: Wood Marquetry.

To transpose these complex volumes and curves to the scale of a dial, Hermès craftsmen begin by miniaturising the motif.

They then select the essence and colour of the material that will serve as a medium of expression – a blend of precious woods.

Wood such as Macassar amaranth and ebony – and rare, like chestnut, yellow pear and madrona burr for Slim d’Hermès Pégase Paysage watch (12-piece limited), and tulipwood for Arceau Astrologie Nouvelle watch (8-piece limited).

 

The various woods are thus chosen for their shades close to the original design, but also for their specific grain, perfectly adapted to the meticulous art ofWood Marquetry.

The artisan cuts out the multitude of tiny elements forming the pattern, before assembling them like a jigsaw puzzle, gluing them in place and finishing them by sanding and varnishing.

Three weeks of work are necessary to create a dial.

The second iteration of the vegan adidas Stan Smith will drop in stores

 on December 2nd

The latest launch in a long-term partnership with adidas, a new design for Stella McCartney’s vegan take on the iconic Stan Smith will be introduced for Spring 2020.

Refreshed with a new, light colour palette for Spring 20, white and black stripes adorn the heel and playful hints of rainbow gradient show through the laser cut stars that make up the classic three-stripe pattern.

Following the success of the first ever vegan Stan Smith, launched by Stella McCartney in 2018, the second sneaker is classic yet versatile and comes with two sets of interchangeable laces; traditional white for a sleek, tonal look, reminiscent of the shoe’s tennis origins, and bright rainbow for a playful, summery appeal. Inspiration for the rainbow hues cues from the designer’s Spring 2020 collection, and speaks to the brands fun, inclusive mindset. Size ranged for both men and women, the new Stella Stan Smith is priced at £235 and will be available from December 2nd in Stella McCartney stores, stellamccartney.com, and select retailers worldwide.
