AIGNER presents its S/S2020 collection titled “DIVINE” in classic beauty and modern elegance where opulence is mixed with balance and a sense of moderation.

>>AIGNER, Spring/Summer 2020<<

DIVINE


The brand‘s new femininity is a harmonious symphony where muted and refined tones interplay in a reinterpretation of AIGNER‘s DNA, where the freshness and elegance of garment fabrics blend in with the modernity of leather, creating an unprecedented effect.

Accessories with a strong character complete each look. Jewellery conveys a heavenly opulence: important layered necklaces, proposed in gold and silver, metal and turtle shell, long oversized earrings made of gold and transparent material feel like a pure non-invasive presence. Felt hats with leather brims perfect the collection’s mood, where the typical shapes of feminine Latin American hats are rediscovered. Glasses proposed in large optical versions, with turtle shell details and engraved metal frames with a special degrade effect at the centre of the lenses. AIGNER’s famous shoulder bags with interchangeable straps revive the maison’s great classics, such as studs and the allover logo.

Lacoste has always valued creativity and excellence in all its forms, and this season [fall/winter 019] Lacoste´s new collaboration shines a light on five legendary outerwear labels [Pyrenex, Gloverall, K-Way®, Alpha Industries + Tailor Toyo].

Pyrenex, Gloverall, K-Way®, Alpha Industries & Tailor Toyo


Called upon for their own particular characteristics that combine excellence, history, and modernity, they were offered an opportunity to interpret the Lacoste wardrobe and revisit iconic pieces.

Pyrenex’s Made-in-France quality, Gloverall’s old British classicism, mythical French brand K-Way®, Alpha Industries’ Mid-South military influences, and Tailor Toyo’s Japanese sophistication—these five brands have taken up the challenge to each reinvent one of their top-selling products alongside Lacoste’s creative team.

Keeping close to their heritage, and spawned from the very heart of their respective ateliers, each label’s unique touch has instilled genuine expertise into unisex designs, while Lacoste’s DNA brought to the table a retro-classic sportswear aura.

Have more impressions by watching the brands presentation video below.


The goods from these collaborations between Lacoste and Pyrenex, Gloverall, K-Way®, Alpha Industries, and Tailor Toyo will be available as early as October 2nd 2019 in Lacoste’s e-shop and in physical stores.

>>Max Mara, Spring/Summer 2020<<

“…women are trained to keep secrets”


The collection is a celebration of new woman power and inspired by spy thrillers.

It is a tribute to the James Bonds out there, whose elegance is admired but his modus operandi is questioned: Bumpy car chases, shootouts and cataclysmic explosions? All dangerous, dirty and unnecessary, MaxMara seems to scream out: In Max Mara´s spring / summer 2020 collection thriller women in spy-style trenchcoats and sharp shouldered three-piece trouser suits manoeuvres their adversary into surrender with a strategic hint and a well laid trap.

She travels to the airport with her generously proportioned bush jacket and her perfectly designed Whitney bag, arrives at her palm fringed island and favours tropical military uniform-shorts that graze her knee. Her multi-pocketed shirts are perfect for keeping her cool when chasing through the jungle. In the evening she drinks cocktails at the Governors mansion and wears long pale paisley print bias cut skirts and fluid pastel gowns with tough looking braces.

“Nothing is more rock and roll than a sparkling Swarovski encrusted look! I was thinking of them as dripping and fringed. Crystal mesh playing a Trompe-l'oeil role in a print of little geometric shapes, some of which are replaced by dazzling Swarovski crystals to add sparkle that on stage and off is the life of the rock star!”

Montone had its moment among a sea of wine red, green, yellow and orange. Also spotted were leopard print and plaid alongside crocodile and snake-embossed leather. Women’s suits were light, bright and oversized while others went bare-chested à la Ricky Thompson. To add some romance — velvety separates, dainty florals, blouson sleeves and macrame. Footwear was easy to walk in; strappy sandals with square toes and slouched boots were must-haves. As for the accessories, jewellery was minimal.

The real statement makers were small but mighty: crafty handbags that came shapely and in pops of colour.

september 019

Just recently, Le Labo released two new City Exclusive scents: the "deeply aromatic tobacco absolute” TABAC 28 (Miami) and the "schizophrenic perfume” BIGARADE 18 (Hong Kong).

TABAC 28, Miami   City Exclusive   Le Labo_   “Deeply aromatic tobacco absolute (picture a Cuban Havana distilled) combined with opulent oud and a striking cedarwood blend creating a smooth,smoldering, feel. Guaiac wood and rum give the fragrance an intoxicating warmth rounded with green cardamom. The whole thing is alive, vibrant, sensual, opulent, decadent even! And it brings to Wynwood another colorful graffiti, but this one for your nostrils only.”

Guaiac wood and rum give the fragrance an intoxicating warmth rounded with green cardamom. The whole thing is alive, vibrant, sensual, opulent, decadent even! And it brings to Wynwood another colorful graffiti, but this one for your nostrils only.”


Born in the capital of perfumery [Grasse, France] and raised in NYC, the luxury artisanal perfume brand was launched in 2006.

The City Exclusive collection is expanded with two new editions: BIGARADE 18, dedicated to the city of Hong Kong and the TABAC 28 thats dedicated to Miami that are available for a limited time only.

Today, each and every fragrance is freshly hand-blended in one of their standalone boutiques around the world. Their City Exclusives aim to marry their scents with selected cities. Usually each one of these editions is sold exclusively in the certain place by which it is inspired and they were made for. For a very limited time Le Labo will be offering all editions from September 1 to September 30 in all boutiques and online.

BIGARADE 18,Hong Kong  City Exclusive   Le Labo _ “Bigarade 18 is a schizophrenic perfume. It’s very classical yet says something about you that really isn't. It’s bright and very powerful, but you can’t seem to breath enough of it in…And it’s simple. You take the best bergamote and neroli petals there are and mix it with the best musks and synthetic ambergris out there, add a drop or two of woods et voila! The resulting tension is like a tug of war between the classical smell of citruses and the warm and transgressive hum of dark notes and woods where there is never a clear winner. Bigarade 18 is rigid yet comfortable, classic yet contemporary, bright yet long-lasting. We dedicate this perfume to Hong Kong, the fragrant bay of old and new, rich with memories for us of classic smells of white florals and citruses mixed with all the discovery and grandeur.”

Archive Editions inspired by BAUHAUS / Courtesy of COS


The Staatliches Bauhaus commonly known as the Bauhaus, was a German school operational and founded upon the idea of creating a Gesamtkunstwerk (‘total work of art’) back in 1919 in which all the arts, including architecture, would eventually be brought together and combine crafts and the fine arts. The school led a revolutionary movement and formed a generation of revered artists in the early twentieth century, many of which have been a constant inspiration to the brand since it was first established 12 years ago. 

To celebrate the centennial anniversary, COS have delved into the archives spanning 12 years to curate a 13-piece capsule collection comprising of 6 womenswear and 6 menswear pieces, plus 1 accessory, which were originally inspired by the Bauhaus school and affiliated artists. 

Each garment has been hand-picked from the archives and explored further, modernising the fits for the current day. For womenswear, COS sees minimal design highlighting true tailoring with folding, draping and darting techniques to create form and body, seam detailing, and reinvented cuts. Combining tradition and modernism, the menswear collection alludes to ergonomic design with adjustable functions, raw edge techniques and hidden fastenings.

To celebrate the opening of the Swiss brand’s first UK store in London’s Soho, VIU collaborated with eight Londoners in the creative field to find out what defines and frames them as characters.

These characters include activists, tastemakers and creatives whose work is intrinsically linked to the city they call home.

They deeply care for their causes, using their voice to make a real difference, not afraid to push boundaries and raise awareness of things that are often left unsaid.

VIU got to know what inspires and challenges them, and also explored their emotional connection with London. The resulting intimate portraits, captured by renowned photographer, artist and director Simon Frederick, are part of an integrated Communications and Marketing campaign across VIU’s brand communications, digital and social media platforms. The collaborators include transgender activist Munroe Bergdorf, mental health activist and one half of Rizzle Kicks, Jordan Stephens, and fashion stylist Kyle De’Volle.


Working with these creative mavericks and pioneers, VIU will take an equally unconventional approach to promoting the campaign, using flyposting at key London sights to make noise about what VIU stands for as a brand and showcase the creatives they have chosen to collaborate with.

On a damp Friday evening amidst the chaos of New York Fashion Week, American designer, Zero + Maria Cornejo and Korean based automotive giant, Hyundai celebrated the launch of limited edition capsule collection, Re:Style.

The fifteen look women’s and menswear collection were made of up-cycled materials from the design house and Hyundai Transys car seats as well as organic cotton Cradle to Cradle Certified Gold Dylan denim.

An exercise in sustainability for the car retailer and business-as-usual for the sustainable womenswear brand. The relaxed styles feature loose silhouettes with modern touches and Asian inspired design.

The jovial crowd convened at Public Kitchen at PUBLIC Hotel on the Lower East Side, indulging on bites, cocktails, and gossip. But it was former Sex and the City actress, Sarah Jessica Parker who held court when she arrived svelte in a custom Re:Style jumpsuit for the event. Other notable attendees included Miss J Alexander and celebrity stylist, Ty Hunter.

The whole idea is to do something creative with things that have had a life before,” says Maria Cornejo. “It’s about making something new and re-imagining things. Re-create, re-imagine, re-cycle. How do we get creative with less?” Committed to lessening their eco-footprint, Hyundai will soon be heading to China for Beijing Fashion Week to introduce Re:Style to the Asian market.

In addition to the capsule collection, Hyundai and Zero + Maria Cornejo have also designed a run of limited-edition T-shirts that will be sold in-store and online.

Mariage Spring/Summer 2020 is an exploration of spectacular beauty characterised by the mingling of signature masculine and feminine elements. The curated offering of dramatic ball gowns, elegant columns, flirty minis and tailored creations present Viktor&Rolf’s singular approach to bridalwear, where the garments are reinterpreted into statement pieces with a surreal Viktor&Rolf twist. 

This season offers an elaborate selection of feminine silhouettes adorned with bold stud and crystal embroideries, sculpturally draped constructions, and an abundance of intricate broderie anglaise flowers cascading down the gowns. Signature sculptural creations are infused with feminine and masculine motifs and an evolution of Viktor&Rolf’s signature tulle ruffle artworks. New fabrics such as lurex jersey, shiny mikado and tulle are introduced that bring a lightness to the entire Mariage collection. 

The emphasis is placed on the décolleté detailing, featuring bejeweled illusion necklines with elegant and sheer ruffle layering, off-the-shoulder necklines that wrap around the back, scallop shaped collars and sculptural draped sweethearts. This season explores tulle ruffle techniques and outstanding sculptural draped roses. 

The highlight of the season is the introduction of separates into the collection, presenting the outspoken Viktor&Rolf take on the bridal suit. The collection is produced in partnership with Justin Alexander, an international bridalwear designer and manufacturer.

* Danko Steiner & Nick Knight


august 019

At the core of what we are doing at Burberry is a passion for the house to become an identity and a lifestyle – one that transcends barriers and is inclusive to all. This campaign explores the many facets of British culture and how they coexist. Together, Danko and Nick celebrate the importance of self-expression and identity through their own distinct lenses.

*The cast includes Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk, Fran Summers, Sora Choi, He Cong and Alexis Chaparro, alongside Freja Beha Erichsen, Finn Rosseel, Shayna McNeill, Anna Ross, Kacie Hall, Heejung Park, Mammina Aker, Xie Yunpeng, Junior Vasquez, Benji Arvay and Maxwell Annoh who all make their Burberry ad campaign debuts.

Burberry unveils its Autumn Winter 2019 campaign, reuniting photographers Danko Steiner and Nick Knight to explore and represent the breadth of who Burberry appeals to.

For Autumn Winter 2019, silhouettes are refined through a contemporary lens. Trench and car coats are transformed with shearling and Scottish-woven cashmere scarf details, and English-fit suits worn with double-collar shirts.

Classic styles are disrupted with injections of youth: tailored blazers with track tops and quilts; double-waist track pants; reconstructed rugby, polo and football-shirt dresses. British maritime traditions inspire striped wool duffle coats, pea coats, silk shirts with shell buttons, and pleated skirts.

Burberry codes are explored through a palette of beige, new iterations of the Thomas Burberry Monogram and bold interpretations of the Icon stripe. Fabrics include cotton gabardine, silk crepe de chine, wool jacquards, tailored neoprene, faux fur and fluid jersey – elevated with hand-appliquéd crystal and bottle cap details.

Two new signature bags – Lola & Title – feature alongside key shapes from Riccardo’s debut collection. The Society is also updated in extra-large and portrait styles for men.


Burberry’s Autumn Winter 2019 collection, Tempest, celebrates the contrasts and contradictions in British culture and weather, from the structured to the rebellious, evolving the cues and codes first set out in Riccardo’s debut collection for Burberry last year.
