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。

DVF

Introduces the Spring 2020 Collection: Floral Rhapsody

The DVF Spring collection is entitled Floral Rhapsody, encompassed with effortless silhouettes and a variety of prints ranging from abstract to geometric. Blossoming florals and buds scatter throughout the collection in anticipation of a new season.

Spring is introduced in the month of February with a sense of awakening. Bold botanical prints, pops of pink and repetitive geometrics dance across whimsical silhouettes and figure flattering styles.

As March makes its graceful entrance, we are greeted with a process of renewal. Nestled within the monthly product are moveable, unencumbered shapes which allow for a feeling of lightheartedness and revival.

April is represented by the final stage of progression into Spring – blossoming. The growth of florals and elements of nature mirrors the growth in our confidence.

Stella McCartney

– Summer 2020 Ready-to-wear

This collection is inspired by all of the fierce women, past, present and future, who aren’t afraid to make the world their own. The free-spirits, the wild ones, the artists and the risk takers. True individuals with strength of character who shine their light bravely. As natural beauty meets modernity, fluid meets graphic and eccentricity meets simplicity, structure is built up and broken down, expressing strength of heart and the duality of the modern woman.

Circular symbols are a guiding force throughout, unfolding from flowing silhouettes unexpectedly, representing life, vitality and femininity. A classical colour palette of graphic and precise black, white, natural and Oxford blue is splashed with washed shades of lemon, flame orange and ginger.

DIOR PRESENTS CHINESE NEW YEAR

On the occasion of the Chinese New Year, a new capsule offers exclusive creations and accessories. Icons and emblems of the House – such as the Lady Dior, the Dior Book Tote and the Saddle bag – are adorned with delicate flowers. Red, one of Christian Dior’s favorite shades, which he called “the color of life”, adorns this exceptional, spring-like and elegant motif, as does the women’s ready-to-wear collection for spring-summer 2020 collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri. A poetic dialogue between Chinese cultural traditions and Dior savoir-faire.

DVF CNY Animation

 

In celebration of this biggest festival of Chinese community, DVF is launching a CNY animation with some festive elements, namely the Rat (Chinese Zodiac), Fireworks, Lantern and Skyline.

Stella McCartney launches a new Stella #stansmith for Spring 2020

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. Leather-free and made using completely vegan materials, the shoe embodies the designer’s commitment to cruelty-free, sustainable practices without compromising on style. Paying homage to Stan Smith, his face remains printed on the tongue of the right shoe, whilst the left is emblazoned with Stella’s portrait and signature. 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.

 

Movers & Cashmere Launches Series IV “The Essence”

“Ultimate aesthetic and creative collusion of architecture, art and fashion”

A Proud Scandinavian partnership with Sørensen Leather and Norm Architects

Movers & Cashmere launches its fourth series, its design philosophy embodies the concept of The Essence of Things – “In art, one does not aim for simplicity; one achieves it unintentionally as one gets closer to the real meaning of things.” – Constantin Brancusi. Clothes pared back to their essence with reduced forms, natural materials, and a neutral, harmonious palette. From clean silhouettes, delicately elevated sleeves, considered high necks, soft yet structured trouser lines, double-faced fabrications, punctuated and detailed aniline trims, the elegantly grown-up collection compliments the true essence of the modern woman who define these pieces. Appreciated beyond time and seasons, they are the essence of things transcended from the essence of their owner.

Since the brand’s debut in 2016, Movers & Cashmere continues to empower “of the moment yet timeless” designs, and to join forces with collaborative partners based on mutual ideologies, a true passion for design and appreciation of natural materials. Stepping into its forth series, the brand put their work in wider context, opening up a new creative perspective on its multidisciplinary art collaboration with world-class Danish leather house, Sørensen Leather and globally renowned Copenhagen-based architecture & design studio, Norm Architects. A visual dialogue between touch and architecture, the collaboration combines the visionary modern living philosophy of Movers & Cashmere with the architectural and tactile world of Norm Architects and Sørensen Leather, where Cashmere-Leather apparel pieces dances in the universe of soft minimalism architecture and leather objects through the lens and art direction of Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, renowned Danish Architect and founding partner of Norm Architects, manifesting the true elements of Scandinavian design.

Movers & Cashmere’s Series IV collection has a big emphasis on seasonless double-faced cashmere outerwear. A continuation of the collaboration with  Sørensen Leather, the exclusive leather house of world-class architects and designers, namely Arne Jacobsen among many others, the collection introduces reimagined signature piece, Aarhus Cashmere-leather bomber, The Movers Cashmere-Leather Wrap Coat and Outlined Cashmere-Leather Cape Jacket. The outerwear line-up is a clever manipulation of natural materials, combining the best of both worlds, Cashmere and Leather, crafted with impeccably soft and sumptuous world-class Inner Mongolian cashmere, subtly detailed with luxurious nappa leather. Celebrating the partnership, the brand has created an all-black Sørensen Leather limited edition bomber jacket in matt black hardware in place of the brand’s signature rose gold hardware. The sculptural collarless wrap coat is the one coat you will wear all winter, seasons after seasons, made to stand the test of time, not built on grand statements but on smart investments – this is where we let the materials do the talking. The collection’s new statement hero, the clean and concise cape jacket manifests architectural & sculptural shapes and punctuations. All collective pieces not to be missed.

 

Complimenting the graceful new line-up of outwear are utilitarian pieces that are effortlessly designed for modern women’s everyday purposeful wanderings. In the Form Turtleneck Sweater offers a serene clean balance between pure and fluid lines. The turtleneck is also introduced in Eco-Cashmere – sustainable, all natural, undyed, and chemical-free, where strong simplicity are channelled into the most pure materials in its most natural color. Precious in its best way. A somewhat more serious-minded straight-up, no-fuss The Structured Trousers are also in the line-up, classically tailored, soft but structured, comfortable but workable for all our power women – strong, relaxed and confident. While throughout the serenity of The Essence series, presented in a neutral palette along with subtle autumn & winter hues and pops of blue, the brand also makes a delightful colourful statement through the Balance Blocks Cashmere Sweater, presenting emotions with substance and modernity.

The collection is now exclusively available at online flagship moversandcashmere.com and will be available at iconic Scandinavian fashion destination VEIN in Lee Garden One Hong Kong and global select stores starting from November 2019.
