PRADA SS2024 DAYS OF PRADA Women & Men's Advertising Campaign

P
rada SS2024 W
omen & Men's Advertising Campaign entitled <Days of Prada> signals a reassertion of timeless priorities. Fashion is about clothes, within life, encapsulated in the living procession of the fashion show. Here, the narrative of that typically transient moment is amplified, extended for an entire season.


This campaign utilizes Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons’ September runway presentation as a catalyst for an exploration of the ecosystem of the fashion show, its complex plurality simultaneously expressive of individuality and community, the momentary and the eternal. The medium becomes the message – part of a constant search for answers to fundamental questions, around the role of fashion in our everyday lives.


A sequence of honest and pure portraits by Willy Vanderperre, poised between spontaneous intimacy and elegant formalism, encapsulates the personae of each model of the show, 40 in total. Comprising both known and new faces, every woman is championed, afforded space and agency in singular portraits – a focus placed on her, and her clothes, addressing ever-transforming notions of femininity.

Amplifying a dichotomy between the notion of the singular and the collective, these portraits are at once individual and part of a larger body of work. They reflect both the procession of the fashion show itself, and a wider dialogue with fashion as both badge of belonging and marker of personality. Prada reminds us that the profession of fashion is a collective one.


Equally, cinema is both a collective endeavor and an individual exercise, actors prized for their innate and unique abilities. Continuing a lineage of Hollywood actors embodying the Prada man, three internationally acclaimed actors and creatives are showcased: Harris Dickinson, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Troye Sivan. Here, their personal characters are celebrated – the roles they play are themselves. Protagonists of their own narratives, they are here framed alongside one other.

Hermès 2024 Home Collection

Hermès’ 2024 home collections invites you to step out of time while keeping your feet on the ground and to create a dialogue between roots and movement, between materials and know-how.


During the recent Milan Design Week 2024, Hermès presented its new collections in tandem with pieces from its heritage. This pairing plays on temporal ambiguity, demonstrating that Hermès objects are unaffected by time and passing trends.


Following a route on the theme of the ground, evoking our relationship with the world around us, the eye is drawn to a composition of raw materials – brick, stone, slate, wood and compacted earth depicting a jockey’s silk jersey.  A powerful symbol of the house’s cultural heritage, the jockey silk with colourful geometric motifs is an inspiration for leather goods and textiles. Buckets, baskets and table centre pieces in leather are given form by highly skilled saddler-leatherworkers.


Virtuoso craftsmanship is also apparent on blankets in subtle, graduated shades and on large cashmere bedspreads in new sizes, enhanced with graphic lines which are woven, dyed, tailored or quilted and embroidered.
 

The shape of the new Diapason d’Hermès lounge chair in leather and hammered aluminium is radical and elegant. Ethereal lamps inspired by the codes of equestrian vaulting and the delicate strokes of the Tressages équestres dinner service are the embodiment of lightness and refinement. All of which confirms Hermès’ original spirit of combining excellence with craftsmanship.

Manolo Blahnik Presents The Summer 2024 Collection

Manolo Blahnik presents the summer 2024 collection 
enduring inspirations of art and architecture. Embellishments take the spotlight once again with jewels, bows, buckles and buttons as the characteristically joyful finishing touches. From Blahnik’s hand-painted prints to the finest textiles and extraordinary techniques, creativity and craftsmanship remain at the heart of it all.


Manolo Blahnik has always been a master of both form and fabric. This season, modernist architecture finds new expressions in stark styles with graphic crisscrossing, undulating curves and a sculptural new heel.


Blahnik plays with absence and presence through colourful accents and cut outs on some, whilst natural rattan lends depth and relief to structural others.


An expert eye for embellishment plays this season with accoutrements reinterpreted from the gothic and belle epoque periods. Droplet-shaped glass stones, brilliant baguette buckles and butter-soft bows grace the elegant styles here. Blahnik hand-painted a botanical print for Summer’s Hangisi and further florals come in through a dramatic rose lace.


Blahnik’s lasting interest in dance first began in childhood when he discovered Les Ballets Russes through a book in his mother’s library. Exquisite costumes from the 1913 production of Nijinsky’s The Rite of Spring inspired a series of styles with evocative swirls and feather-light straps. A primary colour palette and block-toe shapes balance the tradition with a contemporary feel.


Classics are given a characteristically ‘Manolo’ twist this season with a new croc-effect calf material offered in soft and vivid tones. The love-forever Hangisi is offered in two muted, feminine shades whilst the Maysale family expands across flats, mules and pumps. An elegant new bridal edit offers styles in satin, lace and leather adorned with graceful bows and sparkling buckles.


Craftsmanship brings the Summer 2024 collection to life, shining through in structural silhouettes, remarkable embellishments and elevated classics. Manolo Blahnik takes inspirations across art and architecture and adds his inimitable creative touch for a season that’s not to miss.

EMPORIO ARMANI Introduces The Armani Sustainability Values SS2024 Capsule Collection

EMPORIO ARMANI Introduces The Armani Sustainability Values SS2024 Capsule Collection with the inspiration of tropical iridescence and the creeping of vibrant nature into the asphalt jungle.


This easy-to-wear modular wardrobe designed for an urban safari or life in contact with the elements. Flowers, animal motifs and boreal nuances meet a mimetic palette of natural and muddy tones with hints of blue and acidic notes of guava, butterfly and flamingo.


For women, the body is lightly grazed by the generous volumes of cargo trousers or washed denim, shirts, oversized bomber jackets and shirt jackets or revealed by sudden transparencies and small sensual pieces such as crop tops, shorts, jumpsuits and short skirts. The animal jaguar motif extends across clothes and accessories to emphasize the inspiration of wild nature.


The men's selection presents a relaxed image: field jackets, sleeveless jackets with large pockets, Bermuda shorts and voluminous trousers.


Washed denim is the defining presence along with 
animal prints on shirts, sweatshirts and Bermuda shorts and the slogan Welcome to the jungle on sweatshirts, t-shirts and pullovers.


Looks are completed by trainers, sandals, bandanas and urban safari hats. Materials are organic or recycled, in line with the group's sustainability strategy and the ASV protocol that defines sustainability requirements for materials and processes.

BEING YOU 2024「型」春接夏廣企

BEING YOU
2024


要型得起,当然不能卖懒,时刻就绪装身,以“新”造型示范作则。 而时尚广告的发放,能够即时唤起你那短暂沉睡的欲望,时而热血沸腾的广企大片画面,更让视觉升华,刺激肾上腺,让购买欲倍增。 不造作,真情流露做自己,颂扬自我真实个性,优雅地型得起,做自身故事的主角。GUCCI ANCORA广企由创作总监Sabato De Sarno构想,发表其首次操刀的2024年春夏系列,强强联手和他初出道时刚投身时尚行业时首位合作的摄影师David Sims去叙述颂扬美,跨越 时尚藩篱,自我表达与隽永魅力的故事。 这位英国著名时尚摄影师的独有个人摄影风格,捕捉模特儿同步亮相的瞬间,活现虚实之间的几何视觉,透过合照聚焦她们各自配搭2024年春夏系列的独特方式,简约特显模特 儿的个性去诠释现实生活和真实女性的故事。五位新面孔Ana、Fadia、Jiahui、Nyajuok和Violet成为Gucci Ancora硬照的主角,同时穿上塑造日常优雅格调的基本服饰,展现美的多元面貌,流露自信和最自然的美感。 感性被视为展现美、自由与自信的态度,成为系列的核心主题,向每位女性发出切身的邀请︰呼召她们活出独特自在的人生,沉醉于唯有时尚方能触发的独有的 “仍然””既有”和“延续”的ancora情感。


而SANDRO的2024春夏系列广告大片再度携手Atelier Franck Durand工作室,并由造型师Joe Mckenna 和著名摄影师Chris Rhodes共同呈现。Rolf Schrader再次出镜,身着一件镂空钩针连衣裙、Achol Ayor穿上一件不对称金丝流苏连衣裙搭配标志性海军蓝风衣、Zaquei的廓形西装与米白色皮质机车夹克相碰撞、而Antoine则通过一件螺纹镂空钩针上衣为整体造型增添格调。整个系列将材质与色彩融合,并以陶瓷艺术象征品牌的创意及可塑性,来演绎与品牌紧密相连的艺术及创意世界。


和谐二字蕴藏在 Loro Piana 的品牌本质当中,秉持中庸之道:在人与自然、自身与各地文化、不同世代、原生形状与当代线条之间追求平衡。2024春夏广企由模特儿Selena Forrest、Jonas Glöer、Awar Odhiang、Rianne Von Rompaey 和徐奔锦演绎从多重感官角度描绘日本建筑和乡村景色中的平衡之美。多个线条流畅的造型、迷人又充满魅力的纹理和富活力感的简约风格,都让人联想到日本,其本质、尤其敬重手工艺的精神及对与自然世界和谐共处的追求。归根结底,日本是一种感觉、一种精神状态、一种从自然孕育而生的文化及深情的诠释。

 
由知名时尚摄影师Mario Sorrenti 掌镜,拍摄采用大量自然光,提升服装与环境之间的质感,并单独展示每个主题:走在街上或站在岸边、坐在田野里、倚靠在现代和传统建筑上去呼唤静态美,让人感受到与当地社区及平静祥和的环境融为一体,流畅的肢体语言,服装采用的色系和布料上纹理与外在环境的天然色彩和谐共存。
 

这一辑探索亲密关系的广企拍摄,传达着平衡之美,没有矫揉造作。影像中清晰感受到日本的氛围,在追求和谐的过程中,它会是一个暗示、一种示意、一道痕迹使之连续性变成一种形象塑造行为,相信世间万物都与更大的宇宙环环相扣,而整体之美存在于每个部分之中。人类在大自然中找到了自己的位置,探索一种相互连结的感觉,而服装和配饰则激发了这种意识。这些画面浓墨重彩,散发出喜悦、温暖与平静的气息,与品牌的静奢概念形影不离,相辅相成。
