DIOR PRESENTS CELEBRITIES WITH THEIR DIOR BOBBY BAG

Designed for Fall 2020 by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the Dior Bobby, a flap bag with soft and feminine lines, possesses an easy and assertive elegance.

Enhancing each look with its graphic curves, and adorned with ‘CD’ initials, this essential expresses more than ever the contemporary essence of the Dior allure.

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。

NEW FALL 2020 MICHAEL MICHAEL KORS AND MICHAEL KORS MENS AD CAMPAIGNS

Michael Kors is pleased to announce the release of new Fall 2020 ad campaigns for MICHAEL Michael Kors and Michael Kors Mens, shot by Mikael Jansson and starring Bella Hadid, Luke Maehlmann, Kendall Harrison and Salomon Diaz.

The new MICHAEL Michael Kors campaign imbues the brand’s jet set roots with a sense of edgy rock ‘n’ roll glamour. Imagining Bella Hadid as the ultimate in 70s bohemian-chic, the campaign follows the star with her groupies closely in tow throughout a series of classic rock star vignettes. Through Jansson’s lens, the headliner is seen exiting a concert venue, much to the delight of her fan club, and lounging with bandmates on the road, all the while embodying effortless cool. Bella is spotted throughout her travels carrying chic variants of iconic MICHAEL Michael Kors handbags, including the quilted SoHo, trendy patchwork Carmen, and studded Mercer Gallery.

“The campaign channels the ultimate in rock star glamour,” says Michael Kors. “The laid-back cool, the attitude and the star power.”

MICHAEL Michael Kors Fall 2020 ready to wear plays up the drama with paisley motifs and florals paired with lavish faux fur, suede and denim. Equal parts carefree and chic, the styling conveys the free-spirited attitude of the season. When it comes to accessories, the campaign spotlights this season’s casual glamour with oversized statement sunglasses, suede boots and luxe handbags in fresh fabrications like patchwork and patent leather.

Michael Kors Mens exudes sophistication for a life on the go, featuring Salomon Diaz in suede outerwear and Signature logo accessories with a sport-luxe stripe. With a sharp focus on stylish and functional Signature bags, the Mens campaign gives a nod to the always on the road Michael Kors Man.

The global campaigns will debut in August, with print ads running in fall issues worldwide. The images will also appear in digital outlets, as well as social media platforms and traditional outdoor media placement.

新一季的廣告延續MICHAEL KORS品牌精髓的Jet Set風格理念,同時融入時尚前衛的搖滾元素。廣告採用一系列經典搖滾明星剪影,通過Jansson的鏡頭,可以看到Bella這位風雲人物正離開演唱會會場,身邊圍繞著雀躍不已的粉絲們。她身背MICHAEL Michael Kors一系列標誌性手袋:全新衍縫SoHo鏈條手袋、拼接款Carmen手提袋和以飾釘點綴的Mercer Gallery手提袋,跟樂隊成員在公路上愜意閒逛,流露出一派隨性的態度,呈現時尚與搖滾的精彩火花,完美演繹70年代波希米亞風格。

設計師Michael Kors表示:熱情與狂野是搖滾音樂的魅力所在,今季廣告突出了搖滾明星隨性颯爽的酷勁以及個性滿滿的時尚態度。

MICHAEL Michael Kors 2020秋季系列服飾,利用佩斯利印花及裝飾,搭配奢華的人造皮革、麂皮及牛仔,打造搶眼造型,率性不羈與活力靈動相互交融,展現今季系列自由奔放的態度;在配飾方面,廣告中的Oversized個性太陽眼鏡、麂皮靴及拼接手袋,更顯系列的休閒魅力。

MICHAEL KORS男士2020秋季系列著重刻畫在忙碌的生活中依舊保持精緻的時尚態度,Salomon Diaz身穿麂皮毛領外套,搭配飾有MK Signature Logo的奢華條紋配飾,魅力盡顯。該男士系列廣告的重點在於兼具時尚性與實用性的Signature手袋上,向步履不停的MICHAEL KORS男士們致敬。

2020秋季系列廣告已於8月正式發佈,平面廣告也將於秋季全球發佈,同時還將通過電子媒體平台、社交媒體平台和戶外媒體進行推廣與宣傳。

SS21 Phlegethon Mens’

PHLEGETHON IS ONE OF THE RIVERS IN THE INFERNO DESCRIBED IN DANTE’S DIVINE COMEDY, NOT QUITE THE CENTER OF HELL BUT ON THE WAY THERE.
ROMANTICIZING DOOM HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN ADOLESCENT MOOD BUT IT’S A CLASSIC WAY TO CONFRONT FEAR AND INSTABILITY — HOPE FOR THE BEST BUT PLAN FOR THE WORST.
MY LAST FALL RUNWAY SHOULDER FREAK OUT WASN’T ABOUT POWER, IT WAS ABOUT DEFIANCE — DEFIANCE IN THE FACE OF THREAT. THOSE SHOULDERS REAPPEAR IN THIS SPRING COLLECTION ON COATS AND JKTS WITH THE SLEEVES RIPPED OFF, LEAVING A RAW ARMHOLE WITH REMNANTS OF WHITE LININGS AS A RIOT CORSAGE.
BLACK GRAIN DE POUDRE TAILORING IS TRACED WITH WHITE STITCHED LEVEL LINES — SINGLE DECISIVE LINES TO SUGGEST ORDER AND REASON; AND GEOMETRIC SATIN CIPHERS HAVE BEEN INLAYED INTO LAPELS.
TRAPUNTO SHOULDER PATCHES ARE THE INFLUENCE OF MY LARRY LEGASPI RESEARCH WHILE COMPILING A BOOK ON HIM RELEASED LAST YEAR. THESE PATCHES ARE APPLIQUED IN PERGAMENA LEATHER FROM MOTTA ALFREDO — THE LEATHER USED FOR OUR FIRST ITALIAN-PRODUCED COLLECTION 18 YEARS AGO.
MOST OF THE LEATHERS USED IN THIS COLLECTION ARE DOUBLE-FACED WITH MINIMAL, UNLINED CONSTRUCTION, INCLUDING A 0.8MM THICK NEAPOLITAN-PRODUCED JUICY DOUBLE-FACED LEATHER WE CALL DOUBLE BUTTER.
WE DID A NEAPOLITAN GELATO DÉGRADÉ PRINT ON CHIFFON AND CRÊPE, EXTENDING IT TO KNITS. THESE KNITS DOUBLE UP, PEEL UP AND DOWN LIKE A BANANA, COVERING OR EXPOSING AT WILL.
A GROUP OF KNITS AND SWIMWEAR HAS BEEN DEVELOPED FROM THE MEMBRANE T-SHIRTS OF OUR SPRING SUMMER 18 ‘DIRT’ COLLECTION AND ANOTHER KNIT STORY OF MESH TANKS ORIGINATES FROM THE MASKS USED IN FW12 ‘MOUNTAIN’.
JKTS AND SHORTS ARE PRESENTED IN STRETCH DENIM SURFACED WITH PAILLETTES CUSTOM MADE FOR US FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC.
RECYCLED PLASTIC IS ALSO USED IN OUR SHOES AND RAINCOATS. THERE IS SOME DEBATE IN OUR STUDIO WHETHER THE USE OF RECYCLED PLASTIC GLORIFIES USING A TOXIC MATERIAL THAT THERE ARE OTHER OPTIONS FOR — OR — FINDING A WAY TO REUSE SOMETHING THAT ALREADY EXISTS…
TO COUNTERBALANCE THE HEFT OF OUR SHOULDERS, WE INTRODUCE A BOZO BALLAST BOOT SHAPE WITH OUR BAUHAUS ZIPPED CARGO POCKET.
OWENSCORP FRANCE7 BIS OF HIS SONG ‘PUSSY MONEY WEED’.
「Phlegethon」是意大利中世紀詩人但丁(Dante)所寫的《神曲》(Divine Comedy)中,地獄裡其中一條河流。河流並非地獄中心,但距離亦不遠。
把厄運浪漫化一向是年少的情懷,但亦是面對恐懼與不安的一種慣常心態──期待最好的來臨同時亦作最懷的打算。
我上個秋季於台上展示誇張的肩膀剪裁並不是權力的象徵,而是拒絕屈服的態度──面對威脅時絕不妥協。那些肩膀剪裁重現於今個春季系列的大褸及外套上,被扯掉了的袖口露出殘破的白襯裡,成為混亂不羈的袖口裝飾。
採用黑色羊毛絨的西裝剪裁以白色平衡針線刻劃──單一有力的線條井然有序;幾何的綢緞被悄悄地繡在翻領裡。
肩膀上夾棉補丁的創作靈感,是啟發自上年發佈關於Larry Legaspi書藉期間,我做資料彙集時所得到的。這些補丁採用由意大利皮革生產商Motta Alfredo所生產的Pargamena皮革造成──我們18年前第一個於意大利製造的系列也是用了這種皮革。
這個系列中使用的皮革結構簡約,以雙面及無襯裡為主,當中包括一種厚0.8毫米、於拿坡利製造的雙面皮革,我們稱之為「double butter」。
我們在雪紡和縐紗上印了一個拿坡利雪糕的三色圖案,並把這圖案申延至針織衣上。而這些針織衣可雙層穿著、捲上或捲落,就像香蕉般,可隨意遮蔽或暴露出來。
今個系列的針織及泳裝啟發自2018年夏季「DIRT」系列中的Membrane T恤。另一款縷空針織背心設計靈感則來自2012年秋冬季「MOUNTAIN」系列中所使用的面具。
外套及短褲採用彈性牛仔布,綴上特別為我們以回收塑膠定製以成的閃片。
鞋履及雨衣亦以回收塑膠製成。我們的工作室裡曾經討論過使用回收塑膠這議題。當可以其他物料代替回收塑膠時,究竟使用回收塑膠會否反而歌頒了有害物質?或使用回收塑膠只是純粹把已存在的物料循環再用?
而為了平衡肩膀設計的重量,我們今季引入了笨重的厚底靴款,靴身有包豪斯式(Bauhaus)的工作拉鍊袋。

 

TIMBERLAND x LIBERTY FABRICS 首個聯乘系列

MADE WITH LIBERTY FABRICS

 TIMBERLAND X LIBERTY FABRICS 首個聯乘系列

Timberland celebrates the beauty of nature by bringing floral and botanical prints from renowned Liberty Fabrics to a collection of women’s boots and shoes made to step outside. Liberty Fabrics are hand drawn or painted by designers in London then transformed onto fabric at Liberty’s Italian printing mill.

Timberland 與 LIBERTY FABRICS 合作推出全新聯乘系列,把大自然、藝術與品味糅合於一起! 以 LIBERTY FABRICS 著名的印花圖案貫穿整個 Timberland女裝鞋履系列,絢爛細緻的印花布料由Liberty Fabrics的倫敦設計師親手繪製,並於意大利的自家印刷廠編製成印花布織品。

LIBERTY FABRICS – ORIGINAL BRITISH DESIGN SINCE 1875

Shortly after opening on Regent Street London in 1875, Arthur Liberty became renowned for his silks. By the 1890s Liberty Fabrics was a byword for the very best of avant-garde textile design. Today, every bolt of Liberty fabric is the product of a bespoke production process: hand drawn or painted by the in-house design team in London, Soho. Transformed onto fabric at Liberty’s own Italian printing mill, near Lake Como. Liberty Fabrics are created by skilled technicians who oversee the production of over 300 different designs every year.

以絲綢工藝品而聞名的Liberty Fabrics於1875年由 Arthur Liberty在倫敦繁華的攝政街所創立;到1890年,品牌已成為紡織界首屈一指的時尚標籤,至今所有印花設計仍然是由倫敦蘇豪區的內部設計團隊親手繪畫而成。Liberty 在意大利科莫湖附近擁有自己的織物印刷廠,由資深的技術人員開發並每年負責監督生產300多種不同的設計。

THE CONCEPT – MADE WITH LIBERTY FABRICS. ’MADE TO STEP OUTSIDE’

Our concept celebrates the beauty of nature by bringing timberland’s passion for the outdoors and liberty’s floral and botanical prints to life in a context that reflects the idea of ‘made to step outside’. Through CGI we bring to life an animated yet organic, living and growing garden that interacts with the products and talent. To create a digital first, modern representation of the liberty pattern, that is relevant to the younger consumer and fuses the worlds of nature and technology.

透過結合Timberland崇尚戶外生活的態度與 Liberty 經典的迷人花卉圖案,主要鼓勵大眾在日常生活中實踐「made to step outside」的理念,抱著滿腔的熱誠以表揚大自然的廣闊和美麗。為配合數碼化時代的年輕消費者,設計師採用像真度極高的CGI 技術,將栩栩如生的花卉一一呈現於產品上,同時以另一種方式重新演譯Liberty的圖案,完美地融合大自然和革新的科技世界。

MAJE FW20 Collection – Girls They Wanna Have Fun

This season, Maje is travelling back in time and space to Le Palace. The place to encounter: supermodels, sequinned dresses, pussycat bows, DJs, genres, turquoise velvet, new accessories, trends, a young English girl and lots of chilled out chicks determined to have fun.

Paris by night, Le Palace of the 80s. Grace singing La vie en rose, Prince’s first concert, Yves’ band… and Karl’s, a set by Grandmaster Flash… and then an account in Libé the next day. For me, the party was only just getting started.

Like Jane, I was from London. I’d left college and the Camden clubs where I’d learned how to dress. Flowing lightweight pieces, loads of different materials – I had learnt my lesson well. Luminous tweeds, trapezoid heels, jaunty Prince of Wales check and turquoise velvet. I was ready and so was the ferry!

But it was Paris after all. Paris…

These Parisian girls are pretty daring without even appearing to try – the ultimate mash-up. Bronze draped jersey under a trench coat, pants & shoes with rock pussycat bows, and traditional jackets worn over sequinned glitter dresses. In the day – exuberant, ultra-shabby chic, and confident of their artistic impression: I don’t understand a word when they sing in English.

They were devastatingly sexy. I almost ran for the Eurostar.

And then I met Loulou. She adored turtlenecks, the twist, fuchsias, puffer jackets, eyelet belts and big shoes.

She dreamed of the countryside and collected cognac bags. She said that Parma was a colour. She just wanted to have fun – at work and at night.

We kissed to Let’s dance by Bowie.

And so I stayed. Le Palace, Le Palace that closed, Le Palace that reopened, a print with mini hearts, the very beginning of the French touch, Les Bains, the comeback of the brogue, the hype around super models, the first grunge sheepskin overshirt and floral neo-grunge pieces.

Let the party continue because in Paris, it never stops.

所以我決定留下來,見證Le Palace結業又重開,還有迷你心形圖案、法國風格的開始、Les Bains、壓花皮鞋回歸、有關超模的熱潮、第一款頹廢風格羊皮襯衣外套及新頹廢風格花紋服飾。

就讓派對一直延續下去吧,畢竟巴黎是不眠之城。

Maje今季穿越時空,回到巴黎的著名夜店Le Palace,遇上一眾超模、珠片裙、蝴蝶領結、DJ、各類音樂、藍綠色絲絨、新穎配飾、時尚潮流、英國少女,還有無數盡情狂歡的年輕女子。

夜幕低垂的巴黎,1980年代的Le Palace。Grace唱著名曲《La vie en rose》、Prince舉行首場演唱會,還有Yves和Karl的樂隊、Grandmaster Flash的佈景,以及翌日《解放報》的報導。對我來說,派對才剛剛開始。

我和Jane一樣來自倫敦,大學畢業後,在肯頓的夜店學會打扮。飄逸輕盈的服飾、各式各樣的物料,我掌握了穿衣之道。亮麗的粗花呢、梯形鞋跟、活潑的威爾斯格紋及藍綠色絲絨,我已準備好登船啟程!

然而,這裡是巴黎。巴黎……

這些巴黎少女不用刻意嘗試,已非常大膽,懂得創意混搭。乾濕褸下配襯銅色褶襇平織上衣,配上長褲及飾以型格蝴蝶結的鞋履。而傳統外套配上閃片連身裙,華麗時尚,散發藝術美感,從容自信,可惜當她們高唱英文歌時,我完全聽不懂。

她們極度性感誘人,令我急不及待要登上歐洲之星火車。

然後我遇上Loulou,她喜歡樽領衫、新意、紫紅色、夾棉外套、孔眼腰帶及誇張的鞋。

她嚮往鄉郊,喜歡買啡色的手袋。她說Parma是一種顏色,而她無論在工作時或晚上,都只想盡興而回。

我們在Bowie的《Let’s Dance》之中接吻。

Celebrating travel in the Dior style, the Dior Around the World capsule comprises a selection of graphic creations featuring camouflage and motifs by Pietro Ruffo, a Roman artist* admired by Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior’s Creative Director.

為旅遊添上一份時尚感,Dior Around the World Capsule系列的設計採用由深受Dior 創作總監Maria Grazia Chiuri 欣賞的羅馬藝術家Pietro Ruffo* 創作的迷彩及特色圖案。Pietro Ruffo為是次合作創作了一幅世界地圖,然後重新演繹Dior先生著名的幸運星圖案,將天空、陸地、星宿與動植物連繫起來。新款的Dior Book Tote手挽袋、Saddle手袋、Diorcamp手袋、綴以Christian Dior名字的露跟涼鞋、輕巧的毛衣以及水手風條紋上衣,皆以此特色圖案點綴。

另外,此系列中的限量版牛仔外套、Dior Book Tote手挽袋及涼鞋現於香港Dior專門店作全球獨家發售。

*這位多元化的藝術家的作品包括水彩畫、雕塑及素描,他曾為Dior 20172018年秋冬高級訂製服系列時裝展設計佈景,並替Dior2019年在威尼斯舉辦的Tiepolo Ball設計表演戲服。
