LANVIN 2021早春系列 范特西幻想殿堂

LANVIN 2021早春系列
范特西幻想殿堂
 

不斷默默地尋訪
時尚,要穿出更高尚的個人風格與品位,就必須具有隨時被嚇怕的準備之心態,鐡了心跳出自我的安全舒適區,不斷嘗新,逆流求變,與流行挂鈎。精益求精去超越自我的穿衣態度,讓内裏的虛幻怪念頭,得到解放,躍過范特西的幻想殿堂,破蛹化蝶。LANVIN創意總監Bruno Sialelli以一個幻想的國度,充斥著真實與虛幻的記憶,以及一個個虛構的故事與角色,部署一場似真亦夢的時尚幻想去開啟2021早春男女裝系列。系列的靈感來自於疫情期間,那些由電影和雜誌圖文閃現的畫面,和無窮無盡的時尚遐想。它們所想表達的,正是人們潛意識中對自由和冒險的渴望,對能再次盡情享受生活的期盼。服裝本身就是男性和女性的相互作用一樣,模特們化身成為一齣未曾上演戲劇中的男女主角,他們為各自的角色傾情演出,一動一靜的瞬間皆被別具一格的鏡頭捕捉下來。
 
 
 
幻想的她已在旁
LANVIN的品牌標識由Paul Iribe1923年設計,1927LANVIN推出的光韻香氛的瓶身正是取自標識上圓鈕扣的形狀,並配以經典的LANVIN藍色調。品牌在向經典風格致敬的同時,也不斷地自我提升,猶如現代主義設計風格的Pencil Box系列手袋,簡約大氣的線條,和對比鮮明的貓型把手設計,也正是為了向Jeanne Lanvin女士與設計師Armand Albert Rateau的合作致敬而再度推出的。LANVIN 2000年代中期的枕形Sugar Bag手袋系列標誌設計,也在此系列中得以重新打造。跨界聯乘對Jeanne Lanvin至關重要,更是LANVIN建立時尚帝國的基石。追溯到LANVIN全盛時期的1920年代,在那個黃金時代,法國藝術家Romain de Tirtoff(別名:Erté,最著名的設計當屬“nom de plume of Erté”系列)的藝術設計就是當時美學的代名詞。LANVIN以他的設計遺作作為藍本,將他的藝術作品融入到印花圖案中,猶如一幅幅荒誕奇想的插畫,描繪著虛構國度的現實生活,也同樣揭示了人們潛意識中的欲望。
 
 
 
緣是沒法去尋覓      為你尋找千萬趟
今次拍攝的場地選擇在位於法國南部的Le Palais Idéal “幻想殿堂,這座中世紀城堡是由一位看似平平無奇的法國郵差Ferdinand Cheval,花費超過三十三年建造完成,實現自己的夢想。他對中世紀城堡的奇幻重塑,更成為了André Breton Pablo PicassoMax Ernst等著名藝術家致敬和朝聖的對象。知名作家Anaïs Nin更在一篇文章中歌頌Cheval的成就。幻想殿堂 變身藝術靈感融入到早春系列中,為居住在理想國度的人們設計出一套套時尚華服。
 
 
我已遇著我欣賞的眼光
這一場真實與虛幻的對話,整體造型不僅展現出在兩戰期間高級時裝的魅力,更呈現出電影世界中的對時裝的幻想。層層疊疊的金屬花瓣飾物象徵著源於大自然的點點滴滴,伴隨著夢想與現實,為整個系列錦上添花;讓奢華極致的服裝成為思想深度和文化歷史的載體,融入經典的法式風格設計,顯得更格外耀眼,意義非凡。同時,亦再次印證了LANVIN的一貫格言和設計理念,將時尚幻想實踐,付諸行動,讓范特西美夢成真。

Hermès Opens New Store In Galaxy Macau

Hermès opens a new store located on the ground floor of Galaxy Macau marks the fourth store in Macau emphasises the ties Hermès has with the vibrant city and offers a convivial space where imagination takes shape in the sixteen métiers of the house. Macau possesses the complete fusion of traditional and modern culture, where leisure activities are accompanied by a picturesque architectural landscape.

The unique vision for the store, conceived by the Parisian architecture agency RDAI, is established from the first encounter thanks to the brilliant jade-coloured floor-to-ceiling façade inside the mall. The colour evokes the symbolism of this local stone, its association with protec-tion and eternal friendship, and the cultural history of the city and its Portuguese influences. Up close, a study of the façade reveals handmade ceramic tiles artfully assembled in a chevron pattern and glazed in gradient shades from emerald to the purest white, the stone's most precious hue. The wide windows showcase animated displays of the latest collections and accessories.


The entrance leads into an expansive, open-plan layout that is centred around the leather universe, followed by individual spaces dedicated to the lively silk collections, the perfume and beauty métiers, women's ready-to-wear, watches and jewellery, men's ready-to-wear, and home and equestrian collections in a surrounding pattern. The design encourages an intuitive explora-tion and the eye is drawn to the geometric cherrywood frames that display a prominent selection of silk scarves. In this way, a sense of intimacy is created within each universe. The back of the store is framed by a wall fashioned from lacquered bamboo blades, each of which having been oxidised using the Japanese hand-applied bokashi technique, highlighting the artisanal approach harnessed into the store design.


The store unites a singular design identity that combines the singularity of the local culture with Hermès' recognisable architectural codes, such as the signature Ex-Libris, the mosaic flooring inspired by the Faubourg Saint-Honoré flagship store, and the Grecques lighting, which enhances the volume and layout of the space. The palette pays homage to the historic houses in the nearby Taipa village, painted in sun-faded greens and sunset pinks. These shades reappear in bespoke dégradé hand-woven carpets, leather seating, and in the green and jade cabochons that decorate the graphic black and white mosaic flooring that recalls traditional Portuguese tiles. The customised motif evolves in a gradient that amplifies the rhythm and dis-covery of the store.

The new Hermès store in Macau offers local customers and new visitors an enhanced retail ex-perience in a welcoming environment with unique identity. It binds the city’s cultural legacy and contemporary exuberance with the Parisian house's creativity and fine craftsmanship in an en-chanting dialogue.

BALLY SS2021 Elemental Balance Collection

B
ALLY presents SS2021 Elemental Balance Collection honoring its heritage of craftsmanship with natural materials and legacy details. Presented for the first time in a virtual format and accessible worldwide through our dedicated digital platform at Bally Studio, the new season collection celebrates the enduring, intrinsic power of the handmade. Exploring the symbiotic relationship between humans and the environment, the collection offers intimate ideas of luxury in a sanguine world, where micro-woven leathers, raw raffias and finely interlaced straw commingle, reinforcing the importance of time-honed techniques, simple and sublime.


A reimagined archival B-Chain and modern pine motif add graphic touches, while languid and layered looks are of the time yet timeless, maintaining an elegant and ethereal equilibrium. Inspired by an open embrace of life spent living in harmony with nature, the SS2021 collection further demonstrates that tradition does not live in opposition to innovation, but alongside it, autonomous and free.


Bally signatures, like the Janelle buckle, graphic B-Chain and 1851 hardware feature for SS2021 across new pointed lasts and stilettos, balanced with natural materials, whether a wraparound leather ankle fringe on the Breeze or as raffia weave. Stylish silhouettes see micro-woven chevron and grid details, as with our first - ever Bally Western cowboy boots or on versatile slip-on flats, while studded clogs make a rooted, back -to- basics statement.


Lattice -worked leather and straw bags are coupled with house signifiers, from the 1851 hardware to the Cecyle lock. Hero laser- cut calf leather with subtle stitching debuts with the Bally Frame across the Vestige collection, also reinterpreted as an artful brush-like motif printed on canvas totes. The B- Chain is reimagined across applications, embossed on leather clutches, or as a patterned cotton jacquard, and stands out with the Saddle bag.


Separates demonstrate Bally’s legacy as a leather architect, while bias - cut silk dresses bring a softer, elegant touch. Bi -material, from linen to suede, meet archival accents, like a-line skirts with gold-tone buttons and side slits, or as mariner-style knitwear. Breezy long shirt dresses and gentle leather smocking also showcase adjacent to a printed head-to-toe, Frame-inspired look.


Signature sneakers are reintroduced for SS2021 in vintage colorways, while dress shoes take on a new life with micro -woven leather details, alongside the new Glide leather sandals with graphic B- Chain motifs for effortless ease. House hardware, including the 1851 and B-Chain, presented for the first time last season, are reinforced across categories on core classics and drivers for men.


Bold, graphic heritage marks inspired by archival references are printed on natural materials, as with the twill cotton Coaster tote, or across leather and straw. The Bally Frame animates the Vestige with laser- cut leather, as the B-Chain logo subtly features in embossed leather or nylon; the High Point collection of men’s accessories continues to resonate with Bally Stripe details.


Casual luxe leather jackets and overcoats layer over brightly colored knits, light denim and patterned pine motifs. Refined silhouettes, belted trenches and bi - material linen and suedes strike a refined, urbane look.


Elemental foundations meet time-honored details, like versatile leather silhouettes, whether woven, laser cut or whip- stitched. The new season leverages this expertise with the finest grains, fusing decades of knowledge and skill with cutting - edge techniques, defining a sartorial style that’s inspired by twill cotton, suedes, calf leather and ultralight knitwear, sophisticated and easy.


Neutral and earthy tones from bone, ginger and khaki to fiery ochres complement cool watery hues, from lighter oceania to darker midnight blues.


The SS2021 film “Daydream,” directed by Antonio Monfreda, captures a sense of environment and place, true to Bally’s reverence for nature and design. Through a cinematic prism, these worlds are integrated into the rugged earth, with mesmeric shapes molded by light and the elements. Depicting a dreamlike moment lost in nature, a youthful group band together in a field of reveries, outfitted in the new season collection. Fiery ochres emulate fire in a sun-dappled setting, alongside watery blue hues; a warm breeze blows across tall stalky grass. As the sartorial search party ensues, artisanal leathers, natural canvases and gold-tone hardware reveal themselves to the viewer. A single symbolic tree punctuates the film, representing a wistful memory of our past, present and planet. A romantic rumination or an eternal idea, this is our daydream.

Bell & Ross Presents New BR03-93 GMT


2021 is the year of further strengthening the bond with its core business and 1st passion, Aviation. It is also the year Bell & Ross rethinks its GMT Instrument and launches a new version. True to its iconic square flagship model, the new BR 03-93 GMT replaces the existing version. Redesigned, more modern, more functional, more readable. This “tool watch” goes back to basics in terms of design and shape which were influenced by two keywords: functionality and legibility. Horologically speaking, the GMT function was first developed to meet with both the needs and specifications of aviators and especially pilots. The acronym GMT is used to indicate a second time zone but not necessarily from Greenwich. This complication has since been popularized and is nowadays commonly used by travelers. Bell & Ross has made aviation, particularly aeronautical instruments, its specialty. Its designs very often match specifications created by professional users.In 2007, the brand launched its 1st GMT Instrument, the BR 03‑51 GMT TITANIUM. Two complications at the service of the long-haul traveler: a second time zone and a large date for optimum readability. The use of high-tech materials like brushed titanium for the case and carbon fiber for the dial optimizes the watch performances. A carbon version was released later in 2013. This complication has subsequently been chosen to equip the Vintage series. Following on from the BR V2-93 GMT 24H launched in 2018, Bell & Ross has completed its range of watches targeted at modern frequent travelers - both professionals and civilians - in search of a chic and functional timepiece. The BR V2-93 GMT Blue – launched in 2020 and picked by Air France pilots – adorns a galvanic blue sunray dial as a nod to the world of air travel and long transatlantic trips, while the second-hand counterweight is subtly styled in the shape of an aircraft. An indispensable tool for aircraft pilots and an ally for globetrotters, but it is also useful for those who are currently experiencing to keep track of multiple time zones simultaneously. Certainly, useful when travelling between different time zones, this function is worth having if your activity occurs in different time zones. It is the ultimate utilitarian tool watch when working remotely and wanting to stay in sync with an overseas office or when you need to schedule meetings across time zones.
