Gucci’s campaign for Chinese New Year celebrates the House’s dedicated collection featuring Japanese manga character Doraemon

To celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year, commencing on February 12th and which heralds the Year of the Ox, Gucci’s Creative Director Alessandro Michele has imagined a dedicated collection of special items that feature the famous Japanese manga and anime character, Doraemon – the cat-type robot sent from the XXII century to help a young boy called Nobita Nobi with secret gadgets from his four-dimensional pouch. The resulting Doraemon X Gucci collaboration is also marking the manga’s 50th anniversary.

For the occasion, Doreamon takes the stage of the new Gucci Chinese New Year campaign shot by photographer Angelo Pennetta. This highly recognizable character becomes a companion who transforms everyday activities into joyful adventures. From having breakfast, to playing video games with friends or partying in the garden, the affable Doraemon in the role of an imaginary friend brings color into people’s lives.

The special collection for men and women featuring pop icon Doraemon in his classic blue color over the GG motif, across different product categories, will debut on January 12th. Later in the month of January, a new special and playful Doraemon‘s disguise, exclusively created in tribute to the year of the Ox, will be revealed.

The pieces will be promoted through Gucci’s digital channels and selected Gucci stores worldwide. Gucci Pins, the House’s ephemeral stores inspired by the pins seen on interactive digital maps, will also bring immersive shopping experiences to several cities.

The Gucci 2021 Chinese New Year Collection has its own sustainable packaging, which comprisesfully recyclablegreen bags and matching swing tickets referencing the 50th anniversary of the cartoon, all featuring Doraemon.

Furtherly under the spotlight, the Japanese manga character will take over selected store façades and street installations in different cities across Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Doraemon will also be the star of two Gucci ArtWalls in Shanghai and Hong Kong, where he will pose over the GG motif, as in the collection.

Bespoke entertainment will be available on the Gucci App bringing Doraemon figure to life thanks to Augmented Reality. Scanning the Gucci ArtWalls and the dedicated packaging, users will discover a choreography by their favourite character.

BABY DIOR UNVEILS THE SPRING-SUMMER 2021 COLLECTION

Designed by Cordelia de Castellane, the spring-summer 2021 Baby Dior collection reflects on the world of tomorrow through children’s eyes. Drawings and messages of peace,
love, and solidarity that featured in a post-lockdown exhibition held by the Parisian gallerist Kame Mennour, deeply moved the Artistic Director, who wanted this collection to reflect their spirit.

Like a return to essentials and simple, everyday joys, as well as the richness of nature Monsieur Dior so loved, these new pieces come in enchanting colors evoking, variously, vibrant earth tones and the soft, luminous shades of the horizon, transposing children’s instinctive joie de vivre into a chromatic palette, materials, and cuts.

At the heart of this imagined future, the iconic Dior Oblique motif blends with camouflage, bringing the warm hues of the forest to skirts, jackets or trousers, while pink and blue dresses appear faded by sea spray or punctuated with flowers. Another series of pieces fuses the hypnotic tie & dye technique with a California vibe, enhanced by sky-and-sea blues on long dresses, t-shirts and sweats. Completing the collection are looks inspired by the hippie movement and its fundamental philosophy of “peace and love,” as seen on airy cotton voile dresses, faded pastel prints, and crochet yokes in pristine white, symbols of reinvention that offer a blank page for mapping out the future.

In a first for Baby Dior, a new eco-responsible capsule attests to Cordelia de Castellane’s commitment to the cause. A celebration of dreams, and an ode to freedom and the freshness of
childhood, available starting in December.

MONCLER + RICK OWENS

MICHÈLE LAMY以混合討論和演出的一天為MONCLER + RICK OWENS系列發布揭幕
MICHÈLE LAMY PRESENTS A MULTI-LAYERED DAY OF DISCUSSION AND
PERFORMANCE AHEAD OF MONCLER + RICK OWENS LAUNCH
“Insulation, protection, and momentum are my impressions of what Moncler stands for, and applying my aesthetic to an insulated traveling bubble was my answer to the collaborative challenge,” said Rick Owens.On the day preceding the launch of the Moncler + Rick Owens collection, the designer’s life partner and creative accomplice, Michèle Lamy, returned to Milan to present a creative program from the hyper-personal setting of the Rick Owens designed custom tour bus.
The tour bus is an ultra-protected cocoon, upholstered in Moncler’s iconic duvet, which earlier this year took the couple across the Nevada desert on a road trip. In February, it was taken to Milan to reveal the Moncler + Rick Owens collection at the Moncler 2020 show, and now Lamy returned to the city where it began to curate a day of multi-disciplinary and intimate discussions.
Lamy, known for restlessly pushing boundaries in culture and communication, and living in a headspace without territory or borders, so set herself the task of finding a way to communicate with the outside world from the seclusion of the bus. Her series of conversations were conceived with an undulating flow, as the day was inspired by the many hours and layers of Jacques Rivette’s 1969 arthouse classic “L’Amour Fou”, with topics rippling from the beautiful to the gritty, from modern Milanese culture to environmental activism, via the medium of Zoom calls.
Conversation partners included Restaurant D’O’ owner Davide Oldani, with whom she talked about ethical and slow food. Then on to the topic of youth bringing value to their community with Vittorio Da Mosto, co-founder of Venice Calls and promoter of sustainable living, and Paolo Rosso, an art producer based in Venice who runs the Microclima, Guwahati research and RedHero eco-preservation programs. The final call was a cultural conversation with Alessio Ascari, founder of Kaleidoscope magazine, and Myriam Ben Salah, independent curator and Director and Chief Curator of the Renaissance Society in Chicago.
The day culminated in an intensely intimate live performance featuring members of Lamy’s own family. The experimental piece, set between the tour bus and the Rick Owens’ store, showcased Lamy’s signature avant-garde oeuvre, exuding feelings of the positive, the chaotic, and the irreverent, and was transmitted on Instagram live to the digital audiences of @Moncler, @RickOwensOnline and
@LaLaMichMich.
The Moncler + Rick Owens collection releases on October 22nd. The journey brings the partners back to their DNA: for Moncler, a duvet; for Owens, conceptual, and architectural forms. Extreme volumes are reinterpreted in Moncler nylons, expressed in a palette of black, silver and dust, realized in an array of radiance quilting.

FRED x CLOT

Maison FRED announces collaboration with CLOT. This first line of streetwear from the French jeweller is inspired by the world of its iconic Force 10 collection.

 Fred Samuel was not yet thirty when he opened his jewellery house in 1936 in Paris.  By engraving his business card with the words ‘Moderne Joaillier Créateur’, he instantly declared his bold and pioneering style. His youth and visionary spirit spurred him to rewrite the traditional jewellery codes and collaborate with numerous artists. He designed jewels with an air of chic casualness that was radically new for the time. Among these was the Force 10 bracelet: considered the first sports jewel, and worn by women as well as by men, it has gone on to become a genuine icon.

This season, Valerie Samuel, artistic director and vice¬-president of FRED, continues this avant-garde tradition by fusing jewellery and streetwear: “I gave carte blanche to the CLOT label to get inspiration from the universe of Force 10 and create this clothing line. The style and sporting values of our iconic bracelet find a natural place in the streetwear fashion of CLOT’s urban and arty vision.”

Started in 2003 in Hong Kong under the leadership of its two founders, Edison Chen and Kevin Poon, CLOT is a fashion and lifestyle brand combining streetwear and urban sport influences. With a global presence, CLOT draws on its Asian roots to forge bonds with the West through its ready-to-wear collections and collaborations with big names in street culture. “We always aim to bridge the East and the West through reimagining different cultural icons through our own lens, and this collaboration is no different. With what CLOT and FRED stand for, the collaboration itself is a mark of bridging the East and the West,” explains Edison Chen.

The designer further anchors Force 10 in the world of sport through the first fashion capsule collection in FRED’s history. Inspired by a set of fine jewellery and multiplied like a chain, the signature buckle appears at the neckline and on the front oft-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies in bold colours. A cap and a beanie complete the line.

“Luxury jewellery has always played a big part in street fashion and, of course, in fashion at large. We looked into FRED’s archives and took cues from advertisements and visuals from the ’50s and ’60s, bringing this to the modern day with a CLOT twist. A lot of the collection also pays homage to ’90s hip-hop such as the three-chain crewneck. Special design elements such as the lace-up detailing on the coach jacket are directly inspired by FRED jewellery pieces and, of course, the main colours of this collection are navy blue (representing FRED) and red (representing CLOT). We hoped to remix some of our brand identity with FRED’s signature designs to create a collection that appeals to different demographics and both brands’ fan bases,” Edison Chen adds.

This collaboration was unveiled in full in a digital fashion show during Rakuten Fashion Week in Tokyo on October 16th, 2020, and is now available at JUICE in Hong Kong.

THE SPRING/SUMMER 2021 MICHAEL KORS COLLECTION

UPON THE ROOF


 
Urban nature was the theme of Michael Kors’ Spring/Summer 2021 Collection, which debuted on October 15, 2020 at 9 AM (NY time) on MichaelKors-Collection.com and the brand’s social media channels. From the location in a New York Restoration Project community garden to a musical performance by American Idol winner Samantha Diaz, the show immersed guests in the season’s inspiration: nature in the city and the spirit of New York.

The collection debuted through a multi-layered digital experience accessible at MichaelKors-Collection.com. The site features three videos: a documentary-style film, directed by newcomer Haley Elizabeth Anderson, that immerses viewers in the mood and inspiration of the season; a traditional runway show, filmed in a New York Restoration Project community garden and featuring a live performance by Samantha Diaz; and a music video centered on Diaz’s moving performance of “You’ve Got a Friend,” written by Carole King.

The documentary, titled Up on the Roof, brings viewers inside Michael’s inspiration and his process for the season. Narrated by designer Michael Kors, the film explores the spirit of New York City, the strength of its people and the endless possibilities the city provides. It also includes a special guest appearance by Bette Midler, who founded New York Restoration Project in 1995 and has dedicated herself to making the city a more beautiful place ever since.

The runway show video showcases the full Spring/Summer 2021 Michael Kors Collection, seen on models Alek Wek, Sabina Karlsson, Julia Nobis, Saskia de Brauw, Mayowa Nicholas, Hiandra Martinez, Grace Elizabeth and more. The show was filmed at a New York Restoration Project garden on Anderson Avenue in the Highbridge neighborhood of Bronx, New York.

“For me, this garden is the perfect culmination of the collection, which is all about the idea of nature in the city and finding balance in our lives,” says Michael Kors. “In the middle of urban New York, we crave green, and in fashion we crave texture and the idea of something that helps us feel better, the way this garden makes you feel better. So, it really was the perfect spot for the show.”

In support of the community where the collection was presented, Michael Kors has made donations to both New York Restoration Project and the Renaissance Youth Center. The South Bronx-based Renaissance Youth Center provides enrichment programs, from performing arts to sports to education assistance, that aim to empower at-risk inner-city youth and help them maximize their potential. The donation will support the organization’s “Music on Wheels” initiative, which brings musical education to local schools that lack music programs.  

The site, MichaelKors-Collection.com, also features images of each look, biographies on the talent featured in the video, and additional editorial content. The Spring/Summer 2021 Michael Kors Collection runway show and accompanying films are also available to the brand’s international audience across YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, as well as on WeChat, Weibo, LINE and Kakao. Fans can also tune into these channels throughout the week for additional exclusive content from the season.

TIMBERLAND X CHINATOWN MARKET

Earthkeepers® Edition with TimberDry™ waterproof and ReBOTL™ fabric   

In 1978, Timberland introduced its original handsewn lug shoe featuring premium leathers, handsewn uppers and a rugged lug outsole. Since then, it’s become a worldwide symbol for expert craftsmanship and style that merges fashion and utility. This fall, the brand teams up with Chinatown Market, a leader in the streetwear/sportswear space to completely reinvent the classic icon.

Chinatown Market brings cutting-edge style to this new collection of expertly crafted handsewn shoes. The leathers are inspired by Nature and the powerful animals of the savannah. And keeping with Timberland’s longstanding commitment to protect the environment, they are sourced from tanneries rated silver by the Leather Working Group for their water, energy, and waste management practices.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Chinatown Market on this capsule collection,” said Chris McGrath, Vice President of Global Footwear Design.  “Timberland’s Creative Vision sits at the intersection of our passion for nature and the energy of fashion.  This collaboration brings both to life in a quirky twist on an iconic style.”

“Genuine handsewn” construction is a traditional method of making footwear, widely recognized as a way to craft an extremely comfortable pair of shoes. Genuine handsewn uppers are shaped and fitted to a last, or footwear mold, with simple tools and then sewn and tacked together by hand on that last. This creates an upper that is incredibly comfortable and flexible.

The Timberland x Chinatown Market collection features two styles: black with blue leather and black with animal print leather. Both will be available globally at timberland.com and Timberland® Times Square, Hong Kong store starting now.
