DIOR SS2020 "Think We Must. We Must Think." Runway Collection - mylifestylenews' Top 10's Pick

 DIOR SS2020 ready-to-wear collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri drew inspiration from archival photographs of Catherine Dior – Christian Dior’s sister – showing her surrounded by flowers in her garden, her passion. An essential protagonist in Dior’s history, she was a courageous heroine of unique determination and force of character: she embodied Miss Dior. Not only was that her nickname, the House’s first, now-iconic
perfume was so named in her honor.

Catherine tended the Dior family’s gardens. She was a gardener in the most complete and profound sense of the term - a woman who cultivated freedom and independence, acting in harmony with nature and the cycle of the seasons.

This new collection evokes through its motifs and embroideries, through shine and the texture of raffia – a vision of luxuriant vegetation, presented in the manner of herbaria, living catalogues and the memory of botanical species.

For Maria Grazia Chiuri, these creations have little to do with nostalgia or the revival of a decorative tradition. Rather, they raise questions, like at the beginning of a long journey, about what caring for plants and flowers means today.

Though we are living in the Anthropocene era in which man rules the planet is it still possible to re-establish the balance of this relationship? Such questioning gives rise to concrete utopias, like that of Monte Verità, a community based on avant-garde ideas that was founded in Switzerland in the early 20th century, that has been a constant source of inspiration for all manner of artists ever since.

The aura of this singular place, built in the heart of nature, illuminates a series of dresses awash in color, from yellow to red. Conscious of the visibility and responsibility her role as Creative Director entails, Maria Grazia Chiuri wished to create an “inclusive garden”, a place of co-existence and diversity in which every gesture counts.

The scenography for the show was designed in collaboration with Coloco, an atelier committed to the collective art of cultivating gardens as a driver of urban inclusiveness. These landscape artists conceived the show like a moment suspended in time, where plants of diverse origins temporarily come together. The trees that appeared at the Paris-Longchamp hippodrome for the duration of this show will continue their journey, joining several long-term projects so that this pluralistic garden’s life may endure.

More than a décor, this ephemeral landscaping concept introduces the creation and reinforcement of wooded areas rich in a diversity of plant species, a symbol signifying that everyone can contribute to the cultivation and preservation of nature’s beauty - and our future.

As imagined by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the woman gardener observes the infinite and ongoing project that every parcel of land represents, however small or vast it may be. At once delicate and determined, this creative terrain is the expression of mindfulness and caring.

ANTEPRIMA SS2020 Cuentos de Havana Collection

Sunshine beaming golden heat
Heart-quickening collision of rhythms and color
Havana, I stand on your soil
Floaty dresses dance to tune of passion

Box jacket with a beat of confidence
Beauty is where you find it

Remembrance of things past
Color pallet of vibrant facades from colonial

Days you have held, days you have lost
Havana, No one you love is ever truly lost

Playfully refined guayabera
Whimsical fringe and stripe

Beauty is vision of creation
A graceful ray of light in the ruins

Eyes seeing the freedom
Art evoke aspiration
Havana, Dare to dream. Live on purpose
Chic natural raffia, fresh linens

Mariposa planted on innocent summer skin
Beauty is elegance with strength within

Havana, Bright smile to wash away all the pains
Encounter culture, true happiness there is.


BOUCHERON Reinterprets The Maison Great Classics

Maison BOUCHERON’s most recognised and unmistakable signature creations, Question Mark necklace, revivied under the extraordinary creativity and craftsmenship of the Maison. Now, Creative Director Claire Choisne once again brings her personal vision to bear on the great classics that make up the rich heritage of the Maison founded in 1858, launching the 2020 Timeless High Jewelry collection that showcases two Boucheron signature codes. Boucheron and reinterpreting the Vendôme and the Liseré. Vendôme set Since 1858, the Maison Boucheron has been associated with the major trends in contemporary fashion and design. Its aesthetic vocabulary and stylistic grammar, galvanized by avant-garde techniques, have formed a language that expresses itself with equal ease in the convolutions of Art Nouveau and the abstraction of Art Deco. Designed around a decorative motif taken from the archives by Claire Choisne, the Vendôme collection embodies energy and elegance in the white gold of a sculptural necklace studded with brilliant-cut and baguette-cut diamonds. “I love this Chevron motif that is both timeless and contemporary, classic and current, of great plastic beauty,” says Boucheron’s Creative Director. “Its suppleness and its play of contrasts, especially on the necklaces, earrings and bracelets, provide wonderful demonstrations of skill from the workshops”, says Claire Choisne. This motif was first revived in the “26 Vendôme” collection. That High Jewelry collection was based on the architectural style of the famous square. The Vendôme bracelet is a happy union of opposites: “The sophisticated clasp can double as a central decorative element if so desired.” The wearer can thus change the Vendôme bracelet’s appearance to suit her mood. The bracelet combines the essential and the accessory, the useful and the aesthetic, paying homage in filigree to that unique spirit that gives Parisian women their charm.

Liseré set
Appearing for the first time in the Hiver Impérial High Jewelry collection, the Boucheron Liseré translates the secret of a deep impression felt by Claire Choisne, the Maison’s Creative Director, when she was in the Moscow area once. “This collection pays tribute to the ties forged between Frédéric Boucheron and Russia. In preparation for this collection, we spent several weeks visiting the Golden Ring area. There was snow everywhere. The sky, the ground... everything was white. Then suddenly I saw a black line that turned out to be the bark of a tree trunk. There was a whole forest of white birch trees in front of us, but were it not for that dark line, I wouldn’t have had a clue it was there! It made an impression on me.” This intense, profound, but simple, memory has inspired a ring of great graphic purity, on which a line of black lacquer scalloped with baguette-cut diamonds forms the unique edging for a sparkly, sumptuous 10-carat emeraldcut diamond. “For me, this edging is the essence of modernity,” says Claire Choisne. “Its graphic brilliance gives the jewellery a mystical appeal and real personality.” The Liseré edging now borders an array of gemstones that shine brightly at the centre of contemporary and sculptural rings, earrings and bracelets.


Salvatore Ferragamo SS2020 Advertising Campaign

Salvatore Ferragamo SS2020 Advertising Campaign is about freedom, to be how you want, where you want, and with whom you want and reunites with Harley Weir to conjure a campaign that expresses and celebrates this liberation.

A diverse cast showcases a layered and sophisticated collection by Ferragamo’s creative director Paul Andrew in which the artisanal plays against the directional to create pieces that transmit ease, confidence, individuality, and above all, freedom.

The mercury is rising in a portfolio of images and video that are designed to conduct a tangible sensation of midsummer’s heat. The joy of friendship and the thrill of discovery are heightened by the sensual pleasures of sunlight.

Paul Andrew says: “We showed this collection outdoors in Milan last September as a way to emphasise that these are clothes designed to be worn for pleasure, during the summer, and with friends. Collaborating with Harley Weir and with the movement direction of Eric Christison, we extended that visualisation into a wild and sun-drenched landscape in which the models run free and feel the heat.

We've used the campaign to highlight certain items, including the new Viva pump and some of the gorgeous hand-knit crochet work, as complements to summer spent roaming free in the company of people you love."

Van Gogh Museum x Daily Paper Capsule Collection

Inspired by the life and work of Vincent van Gogh, fashion and lifestyle brand Daily Paper has designed a capsule collection together with the Van Gogh Museum, incorporating several of Van Gogh’s masterpieces into a range of garments in a collaboration which sees the worlds of fashion and art merge. 

An official launch event was held at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam recently and the collection is now available both online via dailypaperclothing.com and the Van Gogh Museum webstore as well as the Daily Paper flagship store and the Van Gogh Museum Shop in Amsterdam alongside selected retailers worldwide. 

Vincent van Gogh’s masterpieces is reimagined as wearable art and this collaboration collection consists of 21 pieces, including jackets, trousers and t-shirts. Given unprecedented access to van Gogh’s drawings, paintings and quotes, each custom designed garment incorporates pieces of the famous painter’s work reproduced in high-resolution and full colour as contemporary graphic prints.

Alongside some of his more iconic works such as Irises (1890), Self-Portrait as a Painter (1887-1888), several lesser-known sketches and works by van Gogh also play a significant role in this clothing line offering an accessible introduction to collectible wearable art. ‘Some of Van Gogh’s less popular works are just as masterful as his better-known ones, yet not a lot of people are aware of them. That's why we decided to focus on them.“ (Abderrahmane Trabsini, co-founder of Daily Paper).

For some designs, the paintings are combined with quotes by Van Gogh to give new context and meaning to his body of work. In one piece, Garden of the Asylum (1889), which he painted while admitted as a patient at an asylum in Saint-Rémy, is combined with the quote ‘Success is sometimes the outcome of a whole string of failures’, creating a thought-provoking statement into how a fierce determination can drive creatives like Van Gogh to insanity in the pursuit of perfection.

Campaign Shot in the city of Amsterdam, the most likely home of a twenty-first century Van Gogh and Daily Paper, the collection campaign reimagines a selection of the artist's masterpieces as seen through the eyes of Van Gogh would he be alive today. Captured by the young up-and-coming Dutch photographer Nick van Tiem, the shoot sees the medium of photography rather than the paintbrush or drawing pen as a vessel for a present-day Van Gogh’s art. A photo echoing The Potato Eaters (1885) replaces the farmers of the nineteenth century with the multicultural youth that serve as the everyday people who would be subjects for this piece. Wheatfield with a Reaper is reimagined as both a solitary worker captured in an ordinary day-to-day field - a supermarket – or as youths gathered on the football pitch. A modern reenactment of a self-portrait of the artist sees his straw hat replaced by the afro of a young black creative. This could be what the Van Gogh of today would depict. "This collaboration with Daily Paper presents us with a fantastic opportunity to connect youth culture with Van Gogh’s art, making the relationship between the two stronger and more accessible’. Says  Martin van Engel, Programme Manager of “Van Gogh Connects.

"Collaborating with the Van Gogh Museum allowed us to show a different side of our culture, because if you know Daily Paper, we mainly focus on our African culture, but we also have our Dutch upbringing in common." Comments Abderrahmane Trabsini, Co-founder Daily Paper.
