Everyone wants to dress like David Beckham, in spring 2016 H&M campaign

Lucire staff/23.24

David Beckham, in his ongoing collaboration with Hennes & Mauritz, has shot his latest campaign for his spring 2016 Modern Essentials Selected by David Beckham collection in Lisboa, Portugal. It is accompanied by a humorous film promoting the line, directed by Fredrik Bond.
   The previous promo showed Beckham discovering that comedian Kevin Hart dressed exactly like him. Its sequel takes things a step further, where Beckham finds that everyone around him is dressed the same as him, including all the hotel staff, an arguing couple, a grandmother, a baby, and skateborders. The accompany print campaign has been shot by Mario Sorrenti.
   The premise is showing off Beckham’s position as a style leader.
   ‚ÄėI always have the best time shooting H&M campaigns. They really understand my style and my sense of humour. It was great to wear such sharp pieces from the Modern Essentials range while having such a good time,’ said Beckham in a release.
   The collection will drop on February 18 and March 19 at all H&M stores that carry menswear, and online at hm.com.

Bang on trend, Karen Walker’s summer ’16 eyewear blasts off into space

Lucire staff/23.55




Above Karen Walker Eyewear’s Cosmonaut, One Orbit and Star Sailor‚ÄĒwhich we’re choosing as the picks of the season in the wake of David Bowie’s passing.

Karen Walker Eyewear’s Arrowed by Karen summer 2016 collection hits stores today (January 20), with new shapes dubbed Moon Disco, Moonwalk, Star City, and Lunar Flowerpatch, joining Harvest, Super Duper Strength, and Number One. Super Spaceship, One Orbit, One Astronaut and Cosmonaut are the futuristic entries, with super-flat lenses. There are new finishes in rose pink and soft grey, plus a finish called Crazy Tort (with brown and gold shades). Her acetate frames have gold, silver and rose gold metal detail, and champagne and silver mirror lenses.
   Our pick of the bunch: the thin-framed look of Cosmonaut, which leaves others in no doubt that you’re ahead of the style game, and that you’re wearing Karen Walker. Star Sailor and One Orbit are the next on our list. These space-themed ones seem right on the Zeitgeist in the wake of icon David Bowie’s passing: there’s that sense of other-worldliness and futurism to them, and we’re picking that as a style this season.

Karlie Kloss, who has endorsed brands as diverse as Lindex and Victoria‚Äôs Secret, will helm the Topshop spring‚Äďsummer 2016 campaign, which launches globally today.
   The campaign sees Karlie model the spring‚Äďsummer collection in images shot in New York by London-based photographer Tyrone Lebon, styled by Topshop creative director Kate Phelan.
   Phelan noted in a release, ‚ÄėIt is thrilling to have Karlie back, eight years after her first modelling job and first Topshop campaign alongside Jourdan Dunn. She is the ultimate Topshop girl and modern super‚ÄĒa world-renowned fashion figure, businesswoman, entrepreneur and philanthropist who will resonate with our global customers through her many talents, ambitions and passions.‚Äô
   Among the Chicago-born, St Louis-based model‚Äôs ventures are Karlie‚Äôs Kookies, a range of gluten-free cookies launched with chef Christina Tosi, with some proceeds to underprivileged children and young American fashion designers, and Kode with Karlie, which funds 21 girls from 11 US states to take full-time software engineering courses.
   Kloss has also modelled on 34 Vogue covers and campaigns for Dior and Marc Jacobs.
   On her first Topshop campaign, Kloss recalled, ‚ÄėOne of my first modelling jobs was my Topshop campaign eight years ago. My grandmother brought me over from St Louis. I was young and shy and super nervous to be on set of Topshop. Luckily I was shooting with Jourdan Dunn and we became overnight best friends. I think she had me in stitches the whole time we were shooting.‚Äô

Ab Aeterno’s wooden watches are the next thing in eco-fashion

Lucire staff/23.58



Ab Aeterno has shown its Sky collection, a range of wooden watches that contain a Swiss movement, with the remainder made in Italy.
   The firm, just over three years old, uses only sustainable materials such as wood. They guarantee that their products contain 100 per cent natural materials, including recycled materials, and are toxic-free.
   Wood was chosen for its lightness and the positive sensation wearers get, according to Ab Aeterno. The watches themselves weigh 50 g and do not have any paint or chemical treatments applied.
   Twenty-five per cent of revenue is used for R&D, says the company, to find new ways of using wood. Ab Aeterno has filed a patent on how to insert the watch movement into the case, and sources its briccole wood from Venezia.
   There are three sub-lines in the Sky collection: for women, for men, and a Unisex range.
