DIOR PRESENTS THE 30 MONTAIGNE SUNGLASSES

The 30 Montaigne sunglasses – inspired by the must-have bag of the same name and christened after the House’s emblematic address – reaffirm their resolutely Dior style in new iterations designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and unveiled at the House’s Fall-Winter 2020-2021 ready-to-wear fashion show. The square, 70s-style frames, punctuated by the iconic “CD” signature, are now available in ivory, black or tortoiseshell- inspired versions. Embellished with a fine gold-finish edging, lenses tinted in captivating shades of burgundy, blue or gray complete the couture look.

 

FURLA FALL WINTER 2020 COLLECTION

 

The Furla Fall Winter 2020 collection is characterised by details that transform each item into an object of desire. Season after season, creativity is showcased in a collection that presents, in addition to bags and small leather goods for women and men, a wide range of lifestyle items including footwear, sunglasses, scarves and jewelry.

Reminiscent of the Bolognese loggias and the Palazzo Furla’s entrance, the arch, as an iconic symbol of the brand, becomes an elegant decorative and structural element of many creations.

Alongside the arch, the new season draws inspiration from the hummingbird whose plumage informs the color palette of this Fall Winter: ranging from Cherry Red to Purple Flamingo, crossing the shades of Ocean Blue up to the iridescences of Gold and Ruthenium. This rainbow of colors is a protagonist within prints, patches and embroideries featured both on leather and silky materials.

These features can be found within the Furla 1927 top handle and crossbody bags along with the new Furla Metropolis, on both its round shape and metallic leather versions. The Fall Winter is also enriched with shoulder bags, handbags, practical totes and hobo bags.

Furla Fall Winter 2020 Advertising Campaign

The new Furla Autumn Winter advertising campaign features Greta Ferro, a young Italian actress and model, chosen for her fresh and timeless elegance. Visuals are characterised by skillful color contrasts and signed by the photographer Giampaolo Sgura, under the creative direction of Magnus Berger.

The campaign’s theme is about a love story told through the exchange of postcards, in the context of a city bar. The correspondence leads back to the old courtship, which soon turns out to be a game full of sensuality and humor.

Each image evokes that peaceful moment of sipping a good cup of coffee, at the mercy of beautiful thoughts. It’s a special instant, which over time allows an appreciation of an all-Italian ritual gesture, built of balance and taste. The shots have a strong suggestive power that refers to tradition, a detail of life which even for an object like the bag becomes an integral part of the scene.

The Autumn Winter 2020 collection is represented by some of the iconic Furla creations, which for the occasion are presented in a renewed look. Objects with clean lines that express a modernity provided by the value of tradition and high craftsmanship. Not a simple accessory, but an extension of the wearer’s character.

Postcards illustrated by the artist Cecilia Carlstedt, who chose the Furla Metropolis and Furla 1927 bags as subjects, depicted under the historic arches of Milan and Bologna, underline the narrative of the story. A clear reference to the two cities closely links with the history of the brand.

Photography and fashion illustration therefore come together in a neo-romantic tale celebrating Italian design. Through creativity and craftsmanship, the story almost creates a real arch, capable of connecting the past to the future – which has always been Furla’s leitmotif.

PortsPURE FW20 Environmentally Friendly Collection

PortsPURE PRESENTS 2020 FALL WINTER

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY COLLECTION

For the Fall/Winter season, PortsPURE moves into a bright future with a collection geared towards sustainability and environmental responsibility. A continuing theme with PortsPURE and its consciousness of the environmental cost of fashion, the new collection strives to create a new language for fashion that is both stylish, perfect for the cooling temperatures, full of character, yet also eco-friendly and sustainable.

The 2020 Fall Winter Collection brings together a combination of tops, accessories and pants, which all uniquely see the extensive use of environmentally-friendly materials in their design and manufacture – PortsPURE ‘s signature style forging forwards into bold new world of eco-friendly fabrics. A Woven Denim Top uses a unique process that combines viscose Ecovero worsted yarn – derived from trees using only sustainable production processes – with continuous twisted rayon warp yarn to produce a silky yet stylish drape-effect finished piece. A Knit Jersey is matched with the lightweight and flowing top, passing GRS certification to produce a streamlined, sleek, and seamlessly eco-friendly piece that uses 40% recycled polyester and recycled fiber.

Denim and woven pants appear in this collection, with the former emphasizing the elasticity on the weft of the twill-dyed fabric. Handsome and silhouetted, the wool-like, machine-washable material of the pants are made of a special polyester fiber that has been treated to give the daringly new interpretation of traditional punk tartan full elasticity and wrinkle resistance. In a similar twist, the woven pants are the culmination of a sustainable development concept, composed mostly of TENCEL yarn and characterized by the material’s signature softness and natural luster. Ideal for sensitive skin, the woven pants bring supreme comfort without any expense to the environment, their contemporary look and sophisticated finish a signature of PortsPURE ‘s creative mastery.

The accessories of the 2020 Fall Winter Collection see new innovation towards environmentally friendly design codes, with a bag utilizing a new fiber interwoven non-lint anti-velvet fabric which achieves excellent breathability and lightness. With an exceptional eye towards its ethos of environmental sustainability, PortsPURE also emphasizes the use of recyclable raw materials, creating a chic new cap whose softness, thermal insulation and lightness belies its recycled origins – a testament to the dedication and achievement of PortsPURE’s craftsman and designers.

In the new 2020 Fall Winter Collection, PortsPURE demonstrates its keen understanding of sustainable fashion and puts its ideals into exquisite practice. Through incredible innovation and its signature contemporary flair, PortsPURE continues its quest to safeguard the precious beauty of the earth; to reduce the burden of human consumption on the planet; and to create a new story for modern fashion that is truly sustainable, and for all.

PortsPURE 2020秋冬系列著眼於可持續發展以及對環境的責任,這也是品牌一直以來的理念,以及對時尚環境成本的意識覺醒。品牌藉着此全新系列致力於為時尚創立新定義,在保持PortsPURE的獨有設計個性的同時,也確保生態環境可持續發展。

 

2020年秋冬系列囊括了上衣、配飾及褲子的時尚配搭,它們在設計和製造過程中均採用環保材料,如此極具PortsPURE的標誌性風格正帶領潮流邁入環保物料的新世界。系列中的梭織牛仔布上衣採用獨特的工藝,把僅使用可持續的木材資源進行纖維生產的EcoVero精紡毛線與人造長絲交織結合,製成輕薄、具柔軟手感及懸垂效果的緞面織料。另外,針織衫與輕盈上衣皆通過GRS認證(紡織服裝全球回收標準),使用40%的再生聚酯和再生纖維生產出絲滑舒適的時尚環保單品。

牛仔布和梭織長褲絕對是日常必備的穿搭。前者強調斜紋織布的彈性,具羊毛手感的牛仔布採用特殊的聚酯纖維製成,配搭棉纖維使衣物富有彈力和抗皺性。而梭織長褲則是可持續發展概念的最佳代表作,由TENCEL紗線物料製作,極具柔軟度及自然光澤感。同時,品牌也採用EcoVero® Viscose by Lenzing的環保纖維,褲子光滑的棉質與普通合成纖維的粗糙及化學成份相比下,更適合敏感性皮膚,猶如融入人體般舒適,帶來與別不同的穿著體驗。由此可見PortsPURE由生產過程到挑選物料,均展現出品牌對可持續發展時尚的決心。

品牌的2020秋冬系列配飾也在環保設計方面取得新突破,印花手袋採用了一種長短纖維交織而成的不起毛防絨布料,此布料具備出色的透氣性、防水性和輕便性。另外,PortsPURE採用可循環再造的原材料,打造出柔軟、輕便及保暖的時尚別緻的帽子,不但具環保意義,同時印證品牌的工匠和設計師在環保理念中的高瞻遠矚與成就。

PortsPURE全新2020秋冬系列展示品牌對可持續發展時裝的理解,並將之付諸實踐。品牌致力於保護地球的珍貴環境,透過不斷創新及探索,著眼於創造能與人類及生態環境共享的服飾,務求減輕對地球的負擔,為現代可持續發展的時裝樹立新里程碑。

NEW ERA x HAVAIANAS COLLABORATION

Capturing the vibrant fun and colorful energy of summer, New Era — the international lifestyle brand with an authentic sports heritage that dates back to 1920 — and Havaianas present their exciting NEW ERA x HAVAIANAS “STEP INTO JOY” collaboration.

為捉緊充滿能量與動感的夏日,從1920年開始引領時尚生活潮流的美國帽牌巨人New Era 與巴西著名拖鞋品牌HAVAIANAS推出 “STEP INTO JOY”聯乘系列。

Targeting fans of both iconic lifestyle brands, two styles of New Era’s popular headwear silhouettes — the adjustable mesh TRUCKER and a reversible BUCKET — are paired with Havaianas’ Brazilian-made flip-flop sandals, in two fresh designs with a Tropicana-meets-street-style aesthetic. Each piece in the collaboration features co-branded logos.

是次聯乘系列絕對為兩個著名休閒時尚品牌的粉絲而設,每款產品都均有兩大品牌的標誌。New Era細選舒適透氣的網狀TRUCKER和創新設計的雙面BUCKET與巴西製造的Havaianas人字拖鞋配搭,起了承上啟下的作用,將熱帶風情與街頭風格展現得淋漓盡致。

The “Step Into Joy” summer campaign, that also pays tribute to New Era’s 100th anniversary this year, features two contemporary Brazilian artists, Bruno Menon (@brunomenon) and Patricia Leda (@sublinhando). The duo co-created street-style sticker-sheet graphics that make up the collaboration’s two key visuals.

今個夏日的聯乘企劃”Step into Joy”連同兩位巴西當代藝術家Bruno Menon(@brunomenon)和Patricia Leda(@sublinhando)合作設計各式各樣充滿色彩和街頭元素的插畫圖案,營造視覺引導,提升了視覺的衝擊,同時亦向New Era成立100週年而致敬。

xVessel G.O.P Capsule Collection by Vanness Wu

吳建豪主理品牌 xVESSEL球鞋作品

Other streetwear labels riff on vintage sneaker design: VanNess Wu strips it down to the bone.

Since founding xVessel in 2018, the Taiwanese-American singer/actor turned designer has become an anatomist of street style. The label’s G.O.P. shoe line earned a commission from Yohji Yamamoto for SS20, and its directional aesthetics make it easy to see why.

The G.O.P. hits a grunge note with its distressed uppers, slashed and re-stitched into sections and fraying at the hems. But the eye-popping deconstruction happens at the midsole. Stacked layers with contrast stripe are displaced and cut away in sections – creating a disrupted line and visual interference that verges on trippy. At the midpoint, the layers are stripped all the way back to expose the cork footbed.

Cushioning for a smooth ride. Aesthetics designed for double-takes.

Four-shoe capsule (HK$1,890) in black and white – on JOYCE NOW

正當其他街頭服飾品牌不斷為運動鞋配上復古設計,相反Vanness Wu將其運動鞋抽走復古設計。

自2018年創立xVessel以來,這位美籍台湾歌手/演員躍身成為一位解剖街頭風格的的設計師。

G.O.P.鞋款的設計美學,於SS20獲得了山本耀司(Yohji Yamamoto)的青睞,與G.O.P.鞋款推出聯乘鞋款。

G.O.P.鞋款的設計用上仿舊鞋面增加玩味,而鞋邊被割開又重新縫接而成。最令人意想不到的是,鞋的中間部份利用堆疊與對比條紋,創造一視覺迷幻。在中間的位置,層層的軟木被剝開,露出軟木鞋底。

包含美學設計及平穩舒適的雙重欣賞。

xVessel四鞋款 (HK$1,890) 各有黑白色供選擇在JOYCE NOW發售。
