PARIS EXPLORING POP-UP OBSESSIONS
The Haussmann branch of Parisian department store Galeries Lafayette has been taken over by the popular French designer, who has taken the fashion world by storm, Jacquemus. The brand is bringing its own Mediterranean vibe and visual obsessions to the floors, shop windows and forecourt of Galeries Lafayette Haussmann. The store includes a variety of immersive installations. Starting from outside, with the white cube hosting the Café Fleurs on Boulevard Haussmann, where hot drinks and pristine bouquets are on sale. Along the boulevard, the store’s shop windows showcase some of the cult objects, from sunshades to a washing line with a romantic twist, a grenadine with water, a launderette, a biscuit dunked in coffee and raffia. All of them rendered with a bright, pared-down aesthetic, to the sound of cicadas and the murmur of water. It feels almost real, if one could forget the boulevard’s heavy traffic.
LOEWE X HOWL’S MOVING CASTLE CAPSULE COLLECTION
Following the success of previous collections, which were dedicated to the cinematic classics “My Neighbour Totoro” and “Spirited Away”, Loewe releases the newest ready-to-wear and accessory designs feature key characters from the 2004 movie Howl’s Moving Castle. Blending hand-drawn and digital animation, Howl’s Moving Castle is technically innovative, exemplifying the power of craft as a bridge between the old and new – a creative approach that Loewe is proud to share. Pushing creativity with bold, intricately crafted pieces the brand designed to bring the world of the film, literally, to life. Thus, the Loewe collection signals the final instalment of the sell-out collaboration between the Spanish luxury house and Japanese animation studio.
THE ATTICO KICKING OFF WITH SWAG
As much as the fashion crowd at large right now, The Attico’s Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini are obsessed with the ‘90s and they are celebrating some of the decade’s icons in their latest capsule collection for fall 2023. Dubbed “Kick Your Game,” it pays homage to the R&B stars including Mary J Blige, Aaliyah and TLC — their style is a mix of high and low, streetwear and glamour. Comprising ready- to-wear and accessories that capture the zing of that era’s fashion, the collection updates The Attico’s styles, including cargo pants, jerseys and washed – out denim jeans scattered in crystals, as well as tops, frocks, skirts and leggings decked in a multi-coloured bandana motif. Playing with contrasting silhouettes, oversize bomber jackets and low-slung baggy pants mingle with skin-baring body-con pieces with cut outs and chainmail or feathery details. The capsule collection is complemented by accessories, a fast-growing category for The Attico.
SAME BRAND, DRAMATIC DAWN
Ferragamo unveils the new advertising campaign photographed by Rafael Pavarotti, a boldly sensual reflection of Creative Director Maximilian Davis’ vision for the Spring-Summer 23 collection. Against a dramatic backdrop of signature Ferragamo
vibrant red, the new codes of the house appear in sharp focus: elegant ease and contemporary clarity; sensuality realised with linear precision. The sunset degrades colours and high-shine Wanda handbags; the sculptural forms of accessories and sensual footwear, including a bag with cut-out details and Elina sandal stand out with graphic impact. This is Ferragamo’s new language of luxury: distinctly modern, sophisticated and fascistically desirable. This is a crystallised vision of the new dawn for the house: rooted in its Italian history, but with a direct vision towards the future.
