BOSS 2019 Spring/Summer Collection

BOSS Spring/Summer 2019 collection once again defines the trends for the new season. The trench coat as a modern classic represents the theme of protective layering and can be found in combination with sharp business or smart casual looks. Strong, warm colors with a breath of fresh air make us looking forward to spring and the new collection. Other key elements are florals, fresh greens and details in striking yellow. Light layering in technical surfaces and relaxed tailoring get us in the mood for summer. In addition, the collection is strongly influenced by graphics and recognizable details. The colors are strong and in contrast with color blocking, whereas all color shades come together in a smart and elevated look.

Jimmy Choo | Kaia Gerber

Stella McCartney | Kate Moss & Kaia Gerber

Top model Kate Moss is always Stella’s best friend. And it is very surprising to see Kaia Gerber (Cindy Crawford’s daughter) in Stella McCartney Summer 2019 ad campaign~

Encapsulating the laid-back attitude of the Stella McCartney woman, the new campaign images features Kaia in a tie dye organic denim jumpsuit and while in another image Kate is clad in a pure white organic cotton jumpsuit.  Both are shot amidst a dirty pastel or washed out neon backdrop that echo the palette and the sense of strength and softness of the new collection.  Stella’s signature play on masculine and feminine designs for summer 2019 are updated in relaxed pastel tailoring borrowed from the boys on Gerber and a weightless glittering lurex dress made of sustainable viscose on Moss, both paired with nude coloured ballet flats featured on the runway.  Highlighted in the new campaign is the designer’s new organic cotton canvas Stella logo monogram cluster bags made for every eventuality in both mini and maxi sizes; round flap bags, back packs, totes and Falabella shapes, as well as the updated version of the pumped up Eclypse sneaker in this season’s colours.

New ETRO Campaign

Symbols acquire new meaing and multicultural elements come to life in the urban atmosphere of a Berlin square, a space on the border between reality and the imagination. The Autumn/Winter 2017-2018 Women’s and Men’s collections, presented through Juergen Teller’s photographs, combine different prints and fabrics as an explosion of colour and patterns.

This season, the ETRO woman wears oversized outerwear and dresses with Paisley and flower patterns, rich in details with colourful ribbons and hems.

Accessories strike a balance between folk and urban style. ETRO’s Rainbow Colour Bag is the protagonist of the season, celebrating the power of colour through a combination of creative geometric patchwork, inspired by the Himalayas.

The Men’s collection presents sophisticated suits, made from superlight and uniquely tactile tartan fabrics. Iconic elements are combined with contemporary details, utilizing the entire spectrum and shades of blue.

BALLY Brings Back Retro Sneakers at Pitti Uomo

Swiss luxury brand Bally will be present at Pitti Uomo for the first time this June, launching its Spring Summer ’18 retro sneaker collection.

Bringing back the magic with the revival of its best sneaker styles over the past decades, Bally’s retro sneaker collection includes four replications of its most successful lace ups, from hip-hop era classics to smashing tennis shoes and sporty runners.

Bally Sneakers rose to recognition in the mid-1980s among rappers on the hip-hop scene. Doug E. Fresh wore a pair on his 1986 album cover Oh, My God!, and long before musicians were calling out other sneaker brands in their lyrics, Slick Rick shouts out he’s wearing ‘Bally shoes and fly green socks’. One of the four styles that have been replicated, the Competition has been produced with the same shape, lining and sole as the original shoe from the 80s. The replica will be presented alongside four additional derivations, exclusively for Pitti Uomo, in Kodak, garnet, marine and snuff.

Sport shoes were a big part of Bally’s DNA as far back as the 1960s when the brand launched its Super Smash series of tennis shoes. Reissued with a vulcanised sole and the same Bally logo on the side, the canvas shoes are available as replicas as well as three new derivations, in both hi and low top styles, and as full leather versions.

Bally’s Galaxy runner, a shoe originally created for utility in 1988, has also been reissued and is now Bally’s lightest sneaker, crafted in canvas with suede detail. The original model in garnet has been reproduced alongside two new versions in Kodak and black, with the original running sole.

The 1974 Vita-Parcours completes the collection, with original identifiable black and white check pattern and produced with a modernised sneaker sole, used in Bally’s Heimberg collection. A more urban shoe, the sneaker comes in its original form and three additional fabrications for men.

Bally’s retro sneaker collection is available in stores and online from January 2018 onwards.

ZLATAN CHALLENGES THE FOOTBALLER ELITE IN NEW UNDERWEAR COMMERCIAL

Others have done it before. Now it’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s turn. Today A-Z Sportswear is releasing an underwear commercial, starring the footballing God himself.

Last week Zlatan shared the music that gives him the inner strength to perform, in a Spotify Playlist for his own brand A-Z Sportswear. Now he is taking it one step further in a commercial about the only gold that matters – your own inner gold.

Gold belongs to anyone who dares to start something, and has the strength to see it through. Gold isn’t reserved for the precious few that can afford it. Because it’s inside all of us, just waiting to be uncovered. The more you push yourself, the brighter it shines.

To constantly inspire you to keep on believing in your own inner gold, A-Z’s boxers have gold on the inside. The Inner Gold video features music by Swedish rapper Erik Lundin. Like Zlatan, Lundin has gone from an upbringing in an unintegrated community in Sweden, and truly knows what it takes to believe in himself despite no one thinking that you can make it.

”Gold isn’t something reserved for those who can afford it. Gold is something thats inside every single one of us. It’s about knowing that anyone can shine, as long as you fight hard enough for others to see it.”

– Erik Lundin

“THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HEAVENLY CREATURES”

Spring/Summer 2017 Men and Women Collections For Spring-Summer 2017 we immerse ourselves in beautiful natural habitats – from high and dry desert to lush, flora- filled rainforest. We see these natural terrains through the eyes of the habitats’ creatures – creating crazy wild proportions: Botanical patterns and animal prints transform into micro and exploded versions. The metallic beauty of beetles inspiring a shimmering layer you can’t miss. We also draw on our favourite artists’ impressions of this natural beauty. Like Henri Rousseau, who painted the exotic of the jungle without ever having seen it. We adopt his naïve, two-dimensional, flora- ooded lens. We begin Spring in a world of greens and sun-cast-on-rain metallics. Treks into high summer habitats immerse our collection in more colour – from dirt-washed pastels to vivid toxic-warning brights. This season Scotch & Soda also introduce a beach capsule: Five white pieces edged with sweet geo embroideries and French taping for swift summer time-outs
