VERSACE x Lily James AW2022 Advertising Campaign

Versace AW 2022 advertising campaign sees Lily James with the new Greca Goddess bag; the actress interpreting a Versace goddess in images from well-renowned photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. As in her films, where she has played roles from headstrong princesses to sex-symbols, Lily James’s impulsive and daring attitude is the epitome of Versace confidence. Lily is seen as equal parts mythological deity and contemporary rebel as she wears new season latex ready-to-wear in a campaign that clashes classical culture with empowered seduction.


Versace Men’s proposal of a modern opulence is visually clear, with the ornate flourishes of the classical surrounding contrasted with the collection’s contemporary content.


The Greca Goddess line of bags is introduced for AW2022. Very Versace contrasts within the campaign imagery fully reflect the new bag and its juxtaposition of rich craft and elegance with a totally contemporary and new energy.

BVLGARI AW2022 Leather Goods & Accessories Collection

BVLGARI AW2022 Leather Goods and Accessories collection is inspired by an intimate dimension, where beauty can be found in everyday life – a collection that is Made in Eden. The Sun shines warm and bright above Eden; there is a gentle bond you form with Eden as you feel the sand between your toes; as darkness descends upon the land, it signifies the tranquillity that comes from resting after a hard day of work; sometimes it seems that a peaceful and serene life is comprised of nothing more than these elements. BVLGARI takes inspiration from these simplest and most natural forms of joy, and introduces three brand new colours, namely Sun Citrine, Sahara Amber, Sahara Black, a comforting palette of neutral colours that gives you a delightful taste of life. With audacious proportions and generous volumes, come a brand-new perspective to the venturesome universe of the BVLGARI snake. Ultra-soft and puffy, the Serpenti Reverse is exquisitely crafted in Metropolitan Calf Leather, it updates the iconic, well-structured frames of Serpenti into a distinctive matelassé pattern, as if designers picked clouds from the sky of Eden, sorely for the purpose of crafting leather art. The emblematic snake closure once more confirms its hypnotic appeal, adding a touch of golden magnetic glow to the piece.


Created for the fashionistas of the world, the bag is introduced in two different iterations. The compact version boasts a metallic top handle with an unprecedented bracing Cobra chain design, offering an intriguing contrast between the distinctive and cloud like quilted leather body and the scintillating metallic element. Equally iconic, the shoulder chain and leather strap sports for the first time the thicker and edgy look of the Cobra motif, for a functional crossbody wearability, while a wider central compartment and a practical external back patch pocket complete the model. A raw and invigorating treasure waiting to be discovered, the piece is available in Ivory Opal and Sahara Amber. The second iteration is a plush and roomy shoulder bag suspended from double Cobra chain and leather straps, conjuring BVLGARI’s jewellery legacy with dare and innovation. Featuring three functional gussets and a back patch pocket, the model comes in neutral Ivory Opal and vibrant Sun Citrine.


The 60s was a period of richly colourful palettes and unashamedly bold lines, it is no mystery that people back then looked at the world through undulating rainbow lenses, and the latest iteration of the Serpenti Pouch is inspired by this golden era! Taking design cues from blueprints of the 60s Serpenti necklaces, the seductive and sinuous snake is now transformed to a pouch with an irresistible soft shape, paired with the eyepopping and exuberant Sun Citrine that stays true to the 60s theme. The spruced up, elongated Serpenti Forever East West in the brand new Sun Citrine is as spirited as a young maiden dancing under the gleaming sun. By meticulously planning the placement of the black and white enamel on the classic serpent closure, the brand designer has created a gorgeous layering effect, whereas the eyes of the snake are crafted in malachite, the gemstone known for its swirly and hypnotic hues of various greens, which further enhances the layering effect. Featuring a single compartment, the model is completed by a frontal pocket, a back patch pocket, an internal seam pocket, three card slots, as well as a detachable practical leather.

If the versatile Serpenti Forever East West is the best companion for your work days, then Serpenti Forever East-West Maxi Chain with a wide shoulder strap in leather and glam rock metallic chain would be the elegant yet defying and playful version for your work-to-cocktails look. Available in Sun Citrine, Foggy Opal, Beetroot spinel, this masterpiece crafted in Metropolitan Calf Leather is an exigency in one’s adventurous quest of self-expression. The unsurpassed allure of the Serpenti wallets are never defined by their sizes! The matelassé pattern of the Serpenti Reverse wallets is resculpted and recalculated on the petite canvas. Adorned with a minimalist variant of the snake closure, the wallet is available in Sun Citrine, Sahara Black and Sahara Amber, offering the Eden experience in the purest form. Always stunning and never boring, the classic Serpenti Forever now comes in the hues of Sun Citrine and Azalea Quartz. The Serpenti Forever Snake Invaders is inspired by the arcade game that took the world by storm – Space Invader. Hundreds of hand-sewn black glossy glass beads on top of fine calf leather are beautifully translated to endless pixels, and the result is a unique mixture of digital nostalgia and leather art, in the style of 70s opulence. Calf leather wallet like you have never seen before, because the BVLGARI Logo wallet is now hot stamped with the attractively engineered Infinitum pattern, making it extraordinarily BVLGARI. BVLGARI BVLGARI men's compact wallet features a dark ruthenium-plated brass décor enamelled in matt black and embellished with the iconic BVLGARI double logo, every single detail bespeaks the quality and artistry of the House.

VALENTINO PINK PP Advertising Campaign x ZENDAYA & LEWIS HAMILTON

VALENTINO new PINK PP advertising campaign features Zendaya and Lewis Hamilton. PINK PP: the color of love, community, energy and freedom.  Still frame of a moment, frozen in a monochrome sign that pervades everything. Pierpaolo Piccioli conceives the new Advertising Campaign following the experimental urge of a radical gesture, stripping the palette down to a single hue. Pink is a different emotional and mental space, a collateral dimension to the real that can be accessed. It is a territory, equal and opposite to the transcendence of the dream. You cannot own a color, but you can own a feeling. PINK PP: a manifestation of the unconscious and a liberation from the need for realism.  Just as a monochromatic artist, Creative Director, has used the sole color Pink PP, conserved as a neutral, to perceive all other levels. A non-color, rather than a defined palette, that becomes as a sign, a code, an identity. An absolute way that becomes totalizing. Zendaya shot by Michael Bailey Gates in a monochromatic and obsessive Pink PP space, has an attitude that recalls a sense of freedom. A freedom that acts as a neutral, that goes beyond any feminine traits. All pictures capture a moment becoming a portrait of a movement. Once again Marcell Rev (from Euphoria) gives a cinematographic taste to the video, creating a metaphoric connection with the Valentino Rendez-Vous campaign: a sofa in the middle of the studio that acts as a portal to an authentic surreal PINK PP world, awakening a dreamlike scenario. In the aura, the notes of the soundtrack by Yazoo, with the song Only You, the same of the show. Pink is the possibility for the re-composition of fashion signs, thanks to a neutrality freed from the rules of the here and now. It is a lucid dream.

BOUCHERON Presents The New "ICON" Campaign

BOUCHERON presents the new "ICON" campaign that's both feminine and masculine, genuine and radical, innovative and inspiring. The "ICONS" campaign is a reflection of a maison that, since it was established in 1858, has stretched the limits of high jewelry by offering pieces to wear, released from the safe. pieces to be felt by the skin and the mind. those they choose to be empowered with, to show their true selves, to stand out. Between style and innovation, heritage and avant-garde, discover "ICONS" as Boucheron goes xxl.


From the genius of famed photographer-stylist team David Sims and Emmanuelle 
Alt, the "ICONS" campaign reaffirms Boucheron’s standing as the first jeweler to open a boutique on place Vendôme. Beyond this dynamic duo, the jeweler has also called upon two icons to embody the five worlds of its emblematic collections. Boucheron femininity is now personified by model Anja Rubik, chosen for her pure beauty and natural sophistication. Her male counterpart is Ludwig Wilsdorff, with a radiant personality that exudes Boucheron’s masculinity, a first for a corporate campaign.


“While remaining true to our history, this new campaign – stylish and assertive – marks a shift for the House. Our distinctiveness
is expressed through the XXL concept, showcasing both our designs and our ambassadors, as well as the unprecedented presence of a man. Ludwig Wilsdorff’s intense personality makes him the perfect embodiment of Boucheron masculinity. And Anja Rubik tells a story that is utterly consistent with the House, with cutting-edge energy.” Says Hélène Poulit-Duquesne, Boucheron CEO. At times accumulated, other times individually, but always xxl, the Boucheron icons are central to the images. "Quatre", "Serpent Bohème", "Jack de Boucheron" and the "Vendôme Liseré" collection form the campaign’s four jewelry episodes.


For high jewelry, the iconic question mark necklace embodies the savoir-faire of 
the workshops at 26, place Vendôme. this avant-garde creation, designed in 1879, is also paying tribute to another historic Boucheron icon in this campaign: the countess of Castiglione. “For this campaign, I imagined oversized versions of our icons while remaining true to their original character. I feel that Boucheron presents a cutting-edge, lively, authentic vision of jewelry and High Jewelry with these pieces, and that’s how I’ve always imagined Boucheron to be. Each visual depicts very different collections. The uniting theme is the stylish quality, both aesthetic and conceptual, seen in the various dimensions of the campaign.” Says Claire Choisne, Creative Director.

HAUTLENCE Introduces A New Version of Wandering Hours Watch

HAUTLENCE introduces a new version of its wandering hours model, housed in a steel case harking back to the original, water- resistant to 10 ATM and flaunting a sportier character, the calibre B30 self-winding manufacture movement drives the central minutes disc and the three hour satellites located inside the sapphire disc. With the launch of the Vagabonde Series 4 model, an ultra-modernised version of the famous star wheel systems – so named because of their star-shaped disc driving wheels – HAUTLENCE has introduced a captivating state-of-the-art piece.


Creating new ways of reading the time has been HAUTLENCE’s vocation since its creation in Neuchâtel in 2004. The Vagabonde Series 4 is firmly in line with this philosophy. The sapphire minute dial adds volume to the rhodium-plated brass base dial, which fea- tures a frosted finish. Inside this disc, the hours rotate around the central staff, turning on their own axis to mark the passing hours. 
If there is one world in which the details are anything but, it is Haute Horlogerie. HAUTLENCE knows this, and pays special attention to the tiny things that make all the difference. Great care has been taken to ensure the finishes are in line with the very exacting standards of the brand originally from Neuchâtel. Considerable technical skill and precision are required to create the sapphire mi- nutes disc, as well as the half-moon motifs that decorate the hours.


Driving the rotation of the discs, the B30 bidirectional self-winding movement guarantees a minimum power reserve of three days. This calibre is based on a manufacture movement designed in collaboration with H. Moser & Cie., which HAUTLENCE developed in a modular way to create this stunning piece. 
The steel case on the Vagabonde series 4 model adopts the TV screen shape favoured by HAUTLENCE. The reworked version features bolder curves and is water resistant to 10 ATM. Retaining its balanced proportions, it is equipped with a bevelled sapphire crystal and a fluted crown with a rubber ring in the same colour as the integrated strap. This is an exquisite HAUTLENCE piece featuring a first-class self- winding movement and a genuine module. A watch with a big personality in which every detail says HAUTLENCE.

Objets Hermès AW2022 Collection - mylifestylenews Top 10's Pick

The 90cm animal kingdom brings the diversity of its motifs and vivacity of its colours to these paper lanterns in geometric shapes, designed by Katie Scott.


The Kelly II Sellier bag sees its silhouette revisited and rewrites the rulebook with an asymmetrical recto-verso “en désordre” construction, switching up conventions and inventing a new equilibrium. An original new story that also includes the Bolide and Birkin bags.


The R.M.S line, featuring a suitcase with a new design by Katie Scott, welcomes a small holdall in canvas and leather: the R.M.S 12h bag. Thanks to its strap, this practical bag can be attached to the telescopic handle of the suitcase. Its construction also makes it possible to fold it down flat when empty, allowing it to be slipped inside.


The Épopée motif created by Jan Bajtlik lends its playful spirit and vivid colours to these hand-lacquered wooden boxes made especially for a child’s room. Of varying heights, the boxes can be stacked to form a totem.


This bandana version of the twilly doll features the Hermès-Paris Station design and two-tone striped trim.


A new iteration for the Bolide mini bag, complete with skateboard wheels. A veritable concentrate of leather craftsmanship, this fun and offbeat, yet very practical, version comes in multiple colour schemes.


The emblematic Cape Cod welcomes a new dial with a unique aesthetic, the fruit of an innovative process developed in collaboration with the Swiss Centre for Electronics and Microtechnology. The dial, a silicon wafer plate, is specially treated and inlaid with gold to reveal the blue-tinged nuances of the Crépuscule motif by designer and graphic artist Thanh-Phong Lê. Its intimate and refined appearance is underlined by a single or double tour band in navy blue calfskin.



Hand woven and inspired by Art Deco, the graphic composition decorating this cashmere cushion is inspired by an Hermès advertisement from the late 1920s.


These jewellery pieces are designed by Juana and Ddiddue Etcheberry, the first laureates of the Hermès fashion accessories contest, launched by the house in 2020 for the Festival de Hyères. They bring together leather and metal in a balanced geometry where elementary forms coexist. The bracelet is composed of a square leather cuff that seems to float between two metal circles. The torque combines a leather necklace and two golden rings, adorning the neck in a halo of soft, glowing light.
With its graphic shapes and its vivid colours, this design by Geoff McFetridge evokes the great American musicals. Seen from unexpected angles, silhouettes swirl, twirl, and tap dance on giant letters forming the name Gene Kelly.

TOMMY HILFIGER Introduces Fall 2022 “TH MONOGRAM” Collection

Tommy Hilfiger created a new monogram with celebrated British illustrator and graphic designer Fergus Purcell. Building on the Company’s history of collaborating with the most significant contemporary creatives, the monogram reimagines the TOMMY HILFIGER brand’s core DNA, and will appear for the first time in the Fall 2022 collection. The new design is the result of extensive research into the TOMMY HILFIGER archive. Purcell has created a bold reinterpretation of the motifs he discovered on iconic pieces from the brand’s design history. Created from an interlocking T and H, the monogram collides the classic with the new, bringing a new perspective to prep sensibility: as such, it is quintessentially TOMMY HILFIGER. “Since 1985, the ‘TH’ monogram has stood for authentic prep style, playfully reinvented for all,” says Tommy Hilfiger. “Fergus Purcell has been a truly inspiring collaborator. His elevated approach and connection to street culture is unique. It has been a joy to reinvent our monogram with him - for 2022 and beyond.” “What I love about the brand is that it’s high impact; very colourful, very confident and very immediate.” adds Fergus. “These were the inspirations that drove my design, and the desire to make something that was new and iconic but also felt as though it could have existed already. I’m very pleased with the results!” Purcell’s new motif has inspired Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2022 “TH Monogram” collection, which brings a forward-thinking spirit to East Coast heritage style across men’s, women’s and kidswear. Premium monogrammed pieces are offered in the brand’s signature Burgundy, Navy and Snow White. On puffers, accessories and unisex styles, the monogram is abstracted into an all-over pattern, whilst on the iconic Rocky Parker and across tailoring, it is depicted as a tonal lattice. Shifts in scale reflect the dynamic versatility of this new brand mark. Refined fabrication and detailing elevate the offering. Casualwear is crafted in premium wool and recycled yarns. Prep classics are filled with recycled down and feature intricate jacquard. Statement-placed embroidered monograms, leather paneling and metal-trim buttons embellish throughout. Just as the monogram, with its differently-sized letters, is perfectly imperfect, the collection is infused with unexpected aesthetic twists that disrupt the status quo. Each piece can be adjusted and layered to reflect an individual’s personal style. Silhouettes can be reworked and reimagined.

VALENTINO FALL 2022 Advertising Campaign


“Wear it however you want.”


“I always think my work is to take a new picture of something that you know already,” says Pierpaolo Piccioli, Creative Director of Maison Valentino. “I do it with new life and new shapes, so you view the landscape from my way of seeing.” Piccioli is talking about his Valentino Promenade Fall 2022 womenswear collection and Valentino After Club Fall 2022 menswear collection, and its accompanying campaign, titled “Portrait of a Generation”. The pieces take signatures from Valentino’s heritage and put them in fresh light: stripes and zebra prints, capes and blouses, prints and embroideries. “When Mr Valentino started designing, there were so many rules for how you wore clothes,” says Piccioli. “Now, fashion is about self-realisation. This collection is shifting Valentino to this new world, giving new meaning to the codes and values.” A floor-length dragon print silk shirt can be worn as a dress, a summer coat, “we don’t need to define it,” says Piccioli.


A cropped striped sweater is worn with a utilitarian jacket, mini-skirt and Valentino Garavani sneakers. An embroidered cape, minimal in cut but maximal in detail, is worn with a simple sweater, leather pants and Valentino Garavani VLogo Chain loafers. To capture the collection, portraits were taken on the street at Arnold Circus, East London. Furniture was used to give the sense of stooping, an urban tradition where items are left on the street for others to take.


Casting was about attitude, “not treating them as models but as humans,” says Piccioli. “We wanted to dress them the way they dress in their own life. It is about individuality and uniqueness, which connects to my work in Couture. It is about diversity and inclusivity. It is about community.”  At the heart of Arnold Circus is a raised garden, centred by a bandstand. The gardens are cared for and planted by volunteers from the community. Valentino has made a donation to the Friends of Arnold Circus for the shoot. “I love that the community takes care of the place,” says Piccioli. “It is an idea of a city that I like. You share something, you take care of something together.” The area reminds Piccioli of his hometown. 


“Roma is about all these layers of eras, people and cultures,” he says. “It is the harmony of what is different, in an effortless beauty that comes from all layers together in balance.” These are the layers that make up Piccioli’s work: the heritage, the new generation, his own point of view. “I like that these designs have a sense of freedom,” he says, “forgetting rules and going into the next chapter in a very free way.”
