alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet Fall 2019 collection

alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet Fall 2019 collection is inspired by fantasia, a narrative that is derived from deep inside the imagination. Not based strictly on history or fact, but rather a modern fairytale, a romantic story, a place where magic touches on reality, beauty empowers, and dreams really do come true. Dreaming the girl in a world of whimsy and color, Bendet has managed to merge art, fashion, and fantasy with a show that brings her clothes to life through a detailed and imaginative visual experience that speaks to the dreamer in you.

For the collection, the clothes evoke surreal beauty and sensual moments, set on stages of magical sparkling snow, and rooms made entirely of red roses and glowing butterflies and sparkling leaves. Bendet weaves a story of fantasy and reality, creating a magnificent and decadent fall collection. Step into the dream world of alice+olivia through artistic and elaborate sets at the enchanting Angel Orensanz Foundation, where imaginative prints are complimented by a color palette of rich jewel tones in shades of bordeaux, merlot, ruby, and pink mixed with black, white and sparkling metallics.

The Queens of Fantasia are the stand out looks – a pleated bordeaux skirt made with yards of iridescent pleated taffeta is paired with a top created in a new technique of velvet sequin, and a giant rose crown. The snow princess is in a full length skirt of ivory feathers with a gorgeous white puffer jacket.

BOSS Menswear FW2019

New and exclusive to BOSS for Fall/Winter 2019 is Traceable Wool, inspired by the brand’s heritage in tailoring and incorporating its ongoing commitment to finding more sustainable ways to produce and finish premium garments.

Six looks across the BOSS Menswear collection will be made purely from traceable merino wool, with the assurance that the entire manufacturing process is meticulously supervised and can be tracked from the origins of the fabric to the creation of the final piece. The process begins with sheep grown and shorn in New Zealand, only from accredited ZQ-certified farmers who meet the highest on-farm standards. Generating high-quality, ZQ-certified merino wool, animal welfare is safeguarded with the prohibition of mulesing and a continuous commitment to social responsibility and environmental protection. The yarn is then spun and the fabric woven in Italy at the leading national weaver, REDA, an iconic family company defined by excellent handcraftsmanship.

Incorporating business and smart-casual designs, each timeless piece in this unique capsule will feature a special hangtag to highlight the journey of traceable wool. The high-performance fabric itself offers water-resistance with a lightweight feel, and moisture control for lasting comfort and dryness. All these features come together in an impressive selection of apparel that promises the responsible sourcing of luxurious merino wool.


Stella McCartney | Winter Campaign

Stella McCartney Reveals Winter 2019Ad Campaign

“In an era of climate crisis, action is more important than ever. Our campaign features a cast of change agents who stand together for the future of our planet.”

Stella McCartney reveals her Winter 2019 Ad Campaign, making a call for climate action with a cast of inspiring change agents like Amber Valetta and members of activist group Extinction Rebellion. Narrated by Jane Goodall, the campaign is a powerful moment of unity as inspiring individuals stand with Stella to protect the planet. British photographer Johnny Dufort captures the striking campaign on the idyllic Welsh coast, encapsulating the stark beauty of nature and celebrating the activism taking place to protect it. Stella has been fighting for greener fashion with her sustainably-led label since its launch and through this campaign focuses on the importance of taking action.

Long-time friend of the house, having appeared in many previous campaigns over the years, Amber Valetta joins the cast embodying the Stella ethos as she uses her platform to help fight climate change and raise awareness of other social issues. Members of Extinction Rebellion Deya Ward, Ruby Munslow and Tori Tsui also feature, each showing their passion for positive planetary change in individual ways, like protest, political activism, filmmaking and raising public awareness. They stand with other models Emma Laird, Chloe Pearson, Chu Wong and Trinity Hill who were selected for being voices for change in their own field and further representing the activist spirit of the campaign.

A short film from the digital campaign, which will be revealed in September, includes a reading from renowned British environmentalist Jane Goodall of an emotive poem by author Jonathan Safran Foer. Written exclusively for the campaign, the poem features poignant statements like “Here is where we are born without choosing to be born, but then choose how to live. Here is where we have our long moment, where we cannot help but leave things differently than how we found them, and have the choice to leave things better. Here and only here are we home”,reminding us of the ironies and truths of everyday life and what is truly important. The supporting social media campaign also includes a series of “how to save the world” videos, sharing information and contributing to the conversation around the climate crisis with a touch of Stella’s irreverence.

The collection itself upholds the campaign message with sustainable pieces, including an upcycled, rainbow-coloured dress made from pieces of archival fabric and a range of organic cotton utilitarian pieces. The horse jacquard dresses are made with sustainable viscose, and all jersey and denim in the collection is made with organic cotton. Sculptural textile adornments by artist Sheila Hicks are worn by Amber in the campaign, with other accessories including functional logo mini bags in ECONYL® regenerated nylon, sleek Alter-Nappa leather backpacks, and updates on the iconic circular logo bag. Modern sunglasses made from the brand’s biodegradable bio-acetate also feature.

Since launching in 2001, the Stella McCartney brand has been deeply rooted in its dedication to being a responsible and modern company taking responsibility for the resources it uses and the impact it has on the environment. As a vegetarian brand, the brand never uses leather, fur, skins or feather in any products for both ethical and environmental reasons, setting a standard for the use of alternative materials. Supporting circularity, the brand is embracing new business models that will transform how clothes are produced, sold, shared, repaired and reused; promoting long lasting product with extended use to reduce environmental impactand help slow down the amount of natural resources currently being cultivated and extracted from the planet for fashion.

The digital campaign launches on www.stellamccartney.comand on the brand’s social media channels from the 23rdof July, with an accompanying print campaign to follow in select global September issues.

The collection will be available in Stella McCartney stores and on Stella from August 2019, as well as select Stella McCartney stores and wholesale accounts worldwide.

Dior unveils Maria Grazia Chiuri’s autumn-winter 2019-2020 ready-to-wear collection, inspired by the rebellious elegance and creative audacity of the Teddy Boys’ Teddy Girls, counterparts of the English culture.In front of the objective of Brigitte Niedermair, the models Selena Forrest and Ruth Bell embody the committed spirit of these creations. On the occasion of her first campaign for the House, the Italian photographer – whose staging with graphic power gives life to fascinating diversions – imagined an artistic dialogue between past and present, figurative and art of purity. His contemporary look sublimates, through a game of curves and abstractions, the icons of the Dior style.A veritable ode to sorority, this series of shots outlines the contours of an affirmed femininity, like the silkscreen T-shirts Sisterhood is Global and Sisterhood is Powerful, which pay homage to the literary works of the American feminist poet Robin Morgan.Like a modern echo in the 1950s and the silhouette of the New Look, the Bar jacket has been redesigned in a more masculine line, highlighted by belts evoking the iconic curves of the Saddlebag. The latter, declined denim punctuated with the Dior Obliquepattern, is revealed alongside the Dior Book Toteand Diorcamp, both dressed in gingham, the iconic Lady Dior, revisited in matte leather, and the new home must-have , the 30 Montaignebag, presented in an unpublished version in crushed lamb leather, with a vintage effect.A standard of British culture dear to Christian Dior, the tartanmeets the toile de Jouyand the leopard, fetish codes of the couturier-founder. A statement of elegance according to Dior, punctuated with precious couture accessories, where shoes and heels, with small heels, pearls and sunglasses hemmed with crystals, rub shoulders with the reversible veil bobs created by Stephen Jones, the British hatter of the House.


Fall Winter 2019-20 Campaign

Photographed in the Highlands, the Chloé Fall Winter 2019 campaign revisits the notions of love, passion and commitment that Natacha Ramsay-Levy explored throughout the runway collection.

From intimate landscapes of the heart to a luminous yet rugged backdrop, this expedition showcases natural, equestrian and naval references with lightness and femininity.

Outdoor tailoring in tartan and tweed, a palette of tundra and aquatic tones, and dresses in undulating volumes bridge Old World ceremony and sensuality.

Here, from the great heights of Scotland, the two women share spontaneous moments of sisterhood, exuding carefree confidence.



The Fall 2019 advertising campaign expands the new universe of Bottega Veneta, defined by Creative Director Daniel Lee, shot by photographer Tyrone Lebon in Los Angeles.

A stark sun-bleached concrete basin in Joshua Tree, California; with eternal blue sky and broad horizons, warmth and sensuality, set the scene for endless possibilities.

A fast car in pure gold is up-ended, as power is subverted, and these images offer a new vantage on the traditional status of luxury itself.

Post-modern symbols of status, glamour and reflection set off the graphic silhouettes of the Fall 2019 collection; this campaign captures a new vision of a modern, unapologetic luxury.

Juxtaposed subversion finds reflection in the clothes. The inherent codes of elevation, desire and sensual identity, the raw contrast of man versus machine, remains at the core of the images that reference the collection in line, cut, construction.

Fall 2019 is clean, precise, and polished. This Bottega Veneta looks from a different angle. Look with new eyes. Discover a fresh point of view.

“Strength, sensuality, being in the moment. Bottega Veneta is about defining a point of view, a new way of seeing subtle individuality, and then subverting that status”, says Daniel Lee.

Michael Kors

A HISTORY        

Michael Kors’ Signature logo print, a geometric pattern featuring the designer’s initials rendered in a clean, stylized design, was first introduced on the runway for Fall 2000 as a complement to that season’s art deco mood.

The graphic MK pattern was shown on a range of items from ready-to-wear to knitwear. Conceived as a modern take on the classic monogram, it was a nod not only to Michael’s signature but to a pattern he sketched often throughout his school years.  


Themodernity of Haute Couture is in equilibrium, where the threads of a gilded past weave a radical future. Amidst ingenuity, the Givenchy Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2019 collection embodies a palimpsest of glamour – as traces of peerless majesty are streaked with rebellion. Unravelling a tapestry of romance and antiquity,Clare Waight Keller invokes the notion of Noblesse Radicale, inflecting the traditions of Givenchy Haute Couture with new textures and volumes. Bearing the fruit of imaginary journeys  through villas, chateaux, and stately homes, these swans emerge as punk effigies – bowerbirds of plumage traced with Indian palamporeand silver filigree. Paraded through the nave of the Musée des Arts Decoratifs, each silhouette bears the name of French Châteaux, in a subtle wink to the birthplaces of the grand tradition of Haute Couture.

En tremblant, ensembles shiver with rapturous embellishment – accumulating heirloom finery from head to toe. From flowering wallpapers and rich upholstery to heraldic silverware, impressions of the past dissolve into modern contrasts of tailleur and deconstructed eveningwear. Debuting in shredded hound’s tooth and
dégradé tweed, the greyscale palette is warmed through in petrol and Prussian blue with soft shades of flamingo pink, periwinkle, jade and straw. On a sculpted round shoulder and hourglass waist, blazers and coats evoke riding capes or tuxedo hybrids in grain de poudre wool, silk satin and double-face cashmere. Invoking the immortal symbolismof the ‘Tree of Life’, the unfurling leaves, petals and ripe fruits of palampore motifs are woven through monochrome jacquards and adorned with precious beading, their chintz and chrysanthemumblooms appearing on swathes of draped taffeta, dazzling sheaths of tonal sequins, and crèpe flecked with sprays of marabou.
Flyaway ribbons cinch parachute shapes layered over dropped crinolines and pleated tulle skirts, whilst fitted bodices fall into iridescent lace pleating or fountains of fringe. Evoking the notion of ‘undone glamour’, opulent men’s silhouettes reprise the palampore motif in embellished lounge tailoring encrusted with metal work. On foot, classic pointed pumps and booties are finished in jewel-toned transparency, as sandals are traced with crystal vines.
