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.

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.

COACH MEN’S SPRING 2019

GLOBAL ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN Michael B. Jordan Debuts as Global Face of Coach Men’s in His First Campaign

Coach today announces the launch of its men’s global advertising
campaign for Spring 2019. The images star actor and producer Michael B. Jordan in his debut as the
first global face of Coach menswear.

Jordan, a star who is redefining Hollywood standards, captures the cool optimism of the Coach Guy in a
series of images set “backstage” at a faded carnival. Shot in a sunlit desert landscape outside of Los
Angeles, the photographs depict Jordan on a vintage car, dressed in the house’s reimagined iconic
American silhouettes—a colorblock shearling jacket, a blue leather moto and a patchwork leather MA-1.
The campaign also stars the new season’s hero bags, including the Signature Rivington Backpack, the
Rivington Belt Bag and the Metropolitan Carryall.

Coinciding with the men’s Spring 2019 launch, Coach also unveils its campaign for the men’s fragrance
collection, starring Jordan. Set in a garage among chrome-plated reflections, the scene shows Jordan
sitting in a vintage car and conveys the approachable masculinity of the Coach Guy.

To bring these campaigns to life, Coach worked with photographer Craig McDean, stylist Jane How, art
director Fabien Baron, makeup artist Carola Gonzalez and hair stylist Jove Edmond.

“I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Michael over the last few years,’ said Stuart Vevers, Coach Creative
Director. “He has been a true supporter of Coach so it felt like a really natural step to collaborate more
closely and create a partnership we can take to the next level.”

 

“I’m proud to be the face of Coach men’s,” said Jordan. “I’ve been a fan of Coach for a long time and truly
respect their inclusive and optimistic values. I’m honored to be a part of Stuart’s vision and creative
process.”

 

BROOKS BROTHERS FALL 17 WOMEN’S COLLECTION BY ZAC POSEN

 

For Fall 2017, Zac Posen, Creative Director for the Brooks Brothers Women’s collection offers the modern woman clothing that addresses the demands her dynamic lifestyle. “I imagined the modern Brooks Brothers woman navigating her day from office to evening,” said Posen. “She is confident, strong, but always feminine.” A classic Nina Leen photo of Eileen Ford in Life magazine circa the 1950’s served as inspiration. Busy with the launch of her prolific agency, juggling phones, a new baby, models… Ms. Ford appears cool, collected and elegant amidst the chaos surrounding her. It’s a vision of the modern woman having it all.


The collection includes a full selection of daywear including chic feminine tailoring in pinstripe and sharkskin fabrics as well as blended wool boucles which add texture. A floral print in wool voile reveals its petals in tonal glen plaid.

An engineered floral jacquard is shown as a chic cocktail dress or flirty pouf skirt paired with a black cashmere turtleneck. An iconic menswear inspired shirt is ultra-feminine with a dropped portrait collar and worn tied at the waist. Original and exclusive prints appear on cotton sateen and jersey and feature ditzy florals or a bold geometric pattern. A paneled dress in tartan in double face fabric combines Brooks Brothers’ heritage in a modern silhouette as does a knit tartan twinset.

The elegant color palette which includes shades of midnight and coronet blue, deep rich reds, and pale pink was inspired by the works of contemporary artist Gary Hume.

A full range of accessories this season punctuate the looks and include a classic kitten heel, a 70’s inspired pump and a leather oxford. Handbags are shown in tan, navy and red with whip stitched detailing.

PI’A YOUR GO-TO DESTINATION FOR SOPHISTICATED SUMMER STYLE

PI’A is excited to announce the opening of their 2-month residency at Pacific Place from1 June – 31 July.  After participating in several successful pop-ups in Hong Kong, New York & Singapore, PI’A has now opened its own exclusive space in Pacific Place.

Designed by Hong Kong-born Priscilla I’Anson, PI’A offers a unique take on modern fashion, informed by Priscilla’s six years spent in Asia working as a fashion stylist and consultant.  As a stylist, Priscilla has collaborated with some of the biggest names in fashion in Asia and, in 2015, recognised a genuine need in the market for a womenswear brand that offered well-made classic wardrobe staples, with a unique twist, at an accessible price point.  “I wanted to create a brand that was informed by what I have learned through my work as a stylist; to give my clients the pieces that they are constantly telling me they need and want.  My muses are all real women that I know and respect.”

Says I’Anson of the opening, “We are thrilled to be opening our very first PI’A store in Pacific Place.  It’s been my go-to mall in Hong Kong ever since I was a young child; instead of begging to go to the playground, I wanted to shop with my mom at the mall!  I always dreamed of having a store there one day and now that dream has come true.  We believe that the stylish, sophisticated and international clientele at Pacific Place are the perfect match for our target market.”

Ever since launching in Hong Kong in September 2015, PI’A has quickly become known for its modern classic aesthetic, which has cultivated a strong following of women who appreciate the brand’s unique take on beloved wardrobe staples.  PI’A has since garnered attention from stylish women all over the world, culminating in the brand being invited to show its collection with a showroom for New York Fashion Week in September 2016.  PI’A’s unique designs have also caught the eye of style icons such as Naomi Campbell, Paris Hilton and Myolie Wu, all of whom have worn some of the brand’s most iconic pieces.

In 2016, PI’A took the collection to Paris to shoot their Spring 2017 campaign in the beautiful Saint-Germain-des-Prés.  The storied location served as the perfect complement to PI’A’s signature classic-with-a-twist aesthetic; a striped top shot along the banks of the Seine; a structured vest dress set against the Instituit de Paris; a striking backless jumpsuit under the Pont des Arts; an off-shoulder top silhouetted against the window of a Haussmann-style building.


The PI’A Summer 2017 capsule collection will be available exclusively at Pacific Place from mid-June.  The campaign was shot earlier this year in Sydney, Australia, telling the story of an independent woman who has left the big city to find peace and inspiration by the open sea.  The result is a capsule of easy, carefree pieces, inspired by the fluidity of nature’s wild elements.

PI’A will be available for 2-months from 1 June – 31 July at Level 2, Area G, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty.

Gabriela Hearst | International Woolmark Winner

The highly anticipated capsule collection that won Gabriela Hearst the 2016/17 International Woolmark Prize will be launched into the world’s leading boutiques this August, via the International Woolmark Prize retail partner network.

Pieces from the limited-edition collection will be available to buy on mytheresa.com as well as in Harvey Nichols (London), Boutique One (Dubai), Boon The Shop (Seoul), David Jones (Sydney), Lane Crawford (Shanghai and Hong Kong) and Hudson’s Bay (Toronto). High-end department store De Bijenkorf (Netherlands) is the latest retailer to join the International Woolmark Prize and welcomes Hearst’s collection to its Amsterdam store.

“It is an honour not only to be recognised by the industry, but also to be able to work with such an exceptional material,” says Hearst, who spent her childhood growing up on her parents’ sheep farm. “Wool is an amazing fibre with so many inherent qualities that can benefit humans, and it has supported my family for so many generations.

“The recognition from winning such a prestigious award has benefited our business tremendously, and has given us confidence for the road ahead. The exposure to industry experts and top-tier retailers has been a significant asset and it has been an honour to have the opportunity to passionately represent and promote the use of Australian Merino in our industry.”

Gabriela Hearst’s womenswear collection, inspired by WW2 Italian journalist, author, and political interviewer Oriana Fallaci, presents sleek silhouettes with updates on trench coats, pleats and an evening dress teamed with the more utilitarian baseball jacket with adjoining scarf, one-piece long johns, reversible puffer vest and cycling trousers. Using ultrafine 14.5 micron Merino wool for luxurious knitwear, through to 21.5 micron wool to create a wool-velvet fabrication, Hearst was praised by the judges for her technical innovation and quality craftsmanship.

“I first wanted to show the luxurious side of wool by making the knit pieces extra light and soft,” Hearst explains. “I also sought to demonstrate the utilitarian side of wool within a fashion perspective. A baseball jacket and reversible puffer vest nod to the influence of Merino wool in sports. The use of Merino wool in high-performance sports is becoming prevalent as people recognise its inherent advantages. Wool has benefited humans for thousands of years, but its qualities make it a fibre for the future.”

Following a global search that nominated more than 75 emerging womenswear designers from 60 countries across the world, Gabriela Hearst was chosen as the winner at a prestigious final event held at the iconic Palais de Tokyo, Paris.

2016/17 International Woolmark Prize womenswear winner: Gabriela Hearst

What did winning the International Woolmark Prize mean for the Gabriela Hearst brand?

It has such deep personal meaning, and I wish my father and grandfather were here to

experience it with me. Sheep and wool were an integral part of their lives as ranchers. From a

designer perspective, it is an honour not only to be recognised by the industry, but also to be

able to work with such an exceptional material. Wool is an amazing fibre with so many

inherent qualities that can benefit humans, and it has supported my family for so many

generations.

 

The recognition from winning such a prestigious award has benefited our business

tremendously, and has given us confidence for the road ahead. The exposure to industry

experts and top-tier retailers has been a significant asset. With the prize money, we invested

in an E.R.P. (Enterprise Resource Planning) system, which will help with efficiency and

sustainability in all aspects of our business. I believe luxury can and should be produced

without wastefulness. It has been an honour to have the opportunity to passionately represent

and promote the use of Australian Merino in our industry.

 

How did working on the collection shape or change the way you work with wool?

I wanted to showcase not only the functionality of wool, but also the fact that it can be ultraluxurious.

 

Consumers have the misconception that wool can be itchy, but I wanted to show the

alternative. I aimed to perfect a 14-micron yarn in 16 gauge. The result is super soft.

 

Can you explain more about the concept behind your winning International Woolmark

Prize collection?

I had so much passion for the concept and loved every minute of the design process. The

collection was very clear from the start in my mind. I first wanted to show the luxurious side of

wool by making the knit pieces extra light and soft. I also sought to demonstrate the utilitarian

side of wool within a fashion perspective. A baseball jacket and reversible puffer vest nod to

the influence of Merino wool in sports. The use of Merino wool in high-performance sports is

becoming prevalent as people recognise its inherent advantages. Wool has benefited humans

for thousands of years, but its qualities make it a fibre for the future.

 

How did you innovate with and use Merino wool in this collection, and what are the

benefits of it in this context?

I wanted to be luxurious but not wasteful. Part of the collection is made with already existing

fabrics. We found two extremely luxurious Loro Piana fabrics with limited stock, making the

collection both sustainable and exclusive since many pieces will be limited edition.

 

Who or what inspires you as a designer?

Strong women are always the main inspiration for my designs. Recently, women such as

Cecile Richards, Kamala Harris and Tammy Duckworth have inspired me with their

intelligence and efforts for the service of others.

 

Collection Overview

Uruguay-born, New York-based designer Gabriela Hearst believes in the traditional values of

quality – values which were instilled at a young age by her parents. Hearst grew up on a

sheep farm in Uruguay, a world away from the fashion capitals, and it wasn’t until her father

passed away that she married her passion for the farm with her love for fashion.

Hearst’s International Woolmark Prize collection presents sleek silhouettes with updates on

trench coats, pleats and an evening dress teamed with the more utilitarian baseball jacket with

adjoining scarf, one-piece long johns, reversible puffer vest and cycling trousers. Microns

range from the ultrafine 14.5 microns for knitwear through to 21.5 microns, offering a woolvelvet

fabrication.

 

“I want to show the ultra-luxury side of wool. People tend to think of wool as their

grandmother’s hand-knit sweater, but it’s such an amazing fabric with immense qualities,” she

said. Hearst’s muse for her final collection was WW2 Italian journalist, author, and political

interviewer Oriana Fallaci. “She interviewed the most dangerous men on the planet,” Hearst

said of the late Fallaci. “She was not afraid of asking the hard questions, and she has so many

qualities that I admire in a woman – she was tough and fearless. But underneath the

toughness is always a sensitive human being.”

 

Biography

Born in Uruguay, Gabriela Hearst grew up on her family’s ranch. After more than a decade

spent in design in New York, Hearst honoured her family’s heritage through the launch of her

eponymous label in Fall 2015, as well as taking over the operations of her father’s ranch.

Hearst wanted to create a brand that reflected a slower pace and process: where things are

made with care and detail, where tradition is more important than trend, where there is a

purpose to every piece. Combining the utilitarian and the beautiful, she creates long-lasting

garments that hold memories for the woman who wears them. Wool has always been an

integral part of her life and knitwear is the cornerstone of the brand. For the Fall/Winter 2016

collection, Hearst partnered with a women’s non-profit, Manos del Uruguay. The tweed pieces

were handmade by local craftswomen with Merino wool from Hearst’s farm.
