H&M Studio teases spring–summer 2017 women’s and men’s ahead of Paris Fashion Week début


NEWS  by Lucire staff/January 27, 2017/5.58

As in previous years (click here for 2014, and here for 2016), H&M Studio will show a collection during the autumn–winter prêt-à-porter shows at Paris Fashion Week, but this time, it’ll be for spring–summer 2017—and it’ll go on sale the next day.
   Hennes & Mauritz has teased the men’s and women’s collections ahead of their public début on March 1.
   The collections show a muted colour palette of black and white, punctuated with items in a bright fuchsia–pink shade. H&M is looking forward to a relaxed spring, with sheer fabrics as well as leather. One women’s print features the word ‘Love’ in small white letters on black stripes; dresses are full and voluminous, and ruffles give a bohemian look. The men’s looks are androgynous, including headbands, sheer sleeves and hoods, long coats, thin collars, and, for the man who dares have colour in his life, the same pink tone is available. (See Lucire Men for a preview of the men’s designs.)
   The Swedish retailer will also launch H&M Studio Kids. Images of that collection go live on February 7.

Chanel shows off spring–summer 2017 haute couture, with Lily-Rose Depp as the bride


NEWS  by Nathalia Archila/January 25, 2017/0.37

On January 24, Chanel released its spring–summer 2017 haute couture collection. House ambassadors Vanessa Paradis, Anna Mouglalis, Caroline de Maigret, Alma Jodorowsky, G-Dragon and Shin Hye Park, singer Cécile Cassel, English actresses Lucy Boynton and Ellie Bamber, Chinese model Liu Wen, as well as French actresses Diane Rouxel, Laura Smet, Olga Kurylenko, Sigrid Bouaziz, Anamaria Vartolomei, Céline Sallette, Anne Berest and Karidja Touré were all present at the Grand Palais.
   The collection’s look was all about a crazy femininity: structured shoulders, straight or tubular lines, defined and slightly raised waists. Alongside major hues of white, silver and grey, the palette moved from beige, pink, yellow, blue and pastel green through to black and navy.
   The show began with crisp tweed suits with clean couture lines, pleated and belted in toned-down but vibrant colours. Some of the suits had elegant tied bows around the neck in bold. From there, the show continued with a scene of silver silhouettes, adorned with feathers, sequins and glitter.
   The last segment of the show continued with slimmer dresses and skirts, many of which were polished by light pink and silver ostrich feathers on their linings. Karl Lagerfeld’s spring 2017 couture show grand finalé was Lily-Rose Depp, the face of Chanel No. 5, in a pink bridal gown with ruffled sleeves and skirt that left everyone in awe.—Nathalia Archila

Doutzen Kroes launches sportswear collection as part of Hunkemöller’s Doutzen’s Stories


NEWS  by Lucire staff/January 17, 2017/12.18




Hunkemöller

For those who have been following the videos on the Lucire TV player, you’ll have seen two videos starring Dutch model Doutzen Kroes appear earlier this week, one of them showing the model in the latest workout gear from Hunkemöller.
   The video, uploaded two weeks ago on YouTube, is part of Doutzen’s Stories, the range in which the model has design input as well as represents.
   The Doutzen’s Sport Stories collection has similar input from Kroes working alongside the brand’s design director, Zoë Price-Smith. The collection is now available from Hunkemöller.
   Kroes shared some of her routine at a launch event on January 4. It includes boxing, weights, skipping, cycling and ‘Piloxing’, a combination of Pilates and boxing.
   The designs have a black base mixed with mesh, with a bold graphic print featuring sharp coloured stripes reminiscent of the 1980s. They have ‘DK1985’ emblazoned on them in a heavy Rockwell typeface, a reference to the year KrÅ“s was born—she celebrates her 32nd birthday next Monday. The sports bras appear comfortable, as does a white mesh jacket. Hunkemöller says that there are three sports bras, for different degrees of intensity.
   â€˜To design a sports collection is a dream coming true,’ said Kroes at the launch. ‘I love wearing the items of the collection in combination with street style. My preferences in terms of fashion influences and favourite materials, in combination with Zoë’s expertise, [proved] to be very successful.’

Rankin photographs Triumph’s spring 2017 campaign, starring Jessica Hart


NEWS  by Lucire staff/January 12, 2017/10.42



Triumph has hired top photographer Rankin to shoot its spring–summer 2017 lingerie campaign, with Australian model Jessica Hart its main face for the season.
   Triumph says the season marks a new creative direction, though the message isn’t dissimilar to its previous one: women should be able to find the correct intimate apparel to fit them. The brand has continued to use its Find the One message.
   There is more of an acknowledgement that women have many roles in their lives, and that Triumph can fit every occasion.
   Rankin said of the campaign, ‘The images are modern, accessible and incredibly confident. We’re really pushing the fact that it’s not just for the “perfect” women. Triumph is for every woman and every woman can wear Triumph and feel really confident in it.’
   On Jessica Hart, Rankin said, ‘She is the sort of person I’ve always wanted to photograph. I love empowered women and she’s really empowered.’
   Hart said, ‘It’s a really cool new look and I’m super excited to be part of it—representing this playful side of Triumph that speaks to all women. Triumph understands that women play so many roles in their everyday life—we’re fascinating creatures! A huge part of being yourself is feeling comfortable. One day you might feel more like being cozy and supported, another you might want to feel sexy and strong. The exceptional fit and comfort of Triumph products lets you be whoever you want to be and that’s something I really love.’







In brief: Belstaff shows autumn–winter 2017–18; Chanel previews spring ’17 advertising


NEWS  by Lucire staff/January 10, 2017/19.25




Belstaff

Belstaff has shown its autumn–winter 2017–18 collection in London, for both men and women. The Jolly Roger collection, inspired by World War II Royal Navy uniforms, even has vintage wax treatments on some designs to give them a worn look. Belstaff notes that the pea and duffle coats have been re-created, while the parka is based on a Belstaff design created for the British military in 1960. Creative Director Delphine Ninous said, ‘The formal naval-inspired pieces are contrasted with a more rugged and free-spirited look appropriate to downtime on the docks. This sense of temporary escapism is reflected in edgier elements such as naval tattoo designs and the Jolly Roger flag, giving a sense of rebellion and individuality.’ Tones are red, brown, blue and military green; base colours are charcoal grey, black and navy, with highlights in spruce teal, sanderling, cardinal red and burnished gold.



Belstaff

   Meanwhile, Chanel has previewed its advertising campaign for its spring–summer 2017 prêt-à-porter collection. The campaign itself has been overseen by Karl Lagerfeld, with contrast at its core. A pop Lolita metamorphoses into a cyberpunk; a tweed jacket has an electronic circuit board as a motif; an off-white silk and lace coat covers a black babydoll. There’s a startling modernity to the images, tying in to the Data Center Chanel catwalk show in Paris last October, which saw high-tech meet the 1990s.

Kristen Stewart, Caroline de Maigret, Pharrell Williams, Cara Delevingne in Chanel bag campaign


NEWS  by Lucire staff/January 5, 2017/10.06

Kristen Stewart, Caroline de Maigret, Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevingne will appear in Chanel’s new campaign for its Gabrielle bag. The new advertisements break April 3.
   All four have links to Chanel, either as campaign faces over the years, or, in the case of de Maigret, having a friendship with Karl Lagerfeld.
   The Gabrielle bag was first shown at the house’s spring–summer 2017 prêt-à-porter catwalk show. The bag has a thermo-formed base, a light calfskin body, and a double chain in leather with golden and silver metal. The look was inspired by the shape of augmented reality glasses, and by the binocular cases seen at racecourses.
   In creating the Gabrielle, Lagerfeld pays tribute to Gabrielle Chanel’s 1955 original handbag.

Gigi Hadid poses naked for Stuart Weitzman’s spring 2017 campaign


NEWS  by Lucire staff/December 14, 2016/11.37



Mario Testino

Gigi Hadid poses naked, save for her Stuart Weitzman metallic satin ankle boots, in the company’s upcoming campaign for spring 2017, photographed by Mario Testino.
   It’s not the first time the model of the moment (or the year, according to the British Fashion Council) has posed nude for the brand: its spring 2016 campaign featured her alongside model colleagues Joan Smalls and Lily Aldridge in a headline-grabbing shot by Mario Testino in December last year.
   The boots are in Stuart Weitzman’s Clinger style.
   A second shot sees Hadid wear a loose white blouse with white trousers, complementing her sparkling, jewelled sneakers.
   The images were released prior to Stuart Weitzman releasing full details of its spring 2017 campaign.
   Hadid has also signed up as a designer for Stuart Weitzman, with her first pair, the Gigi boot, making its first appearance in October.
   Stuart Weitzman has also committed to build three schools, one each in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos, during the autumn 2016 season.

Porsche Design Sport by Adidas releases spring–summer 2017 collection, for year-round activity


NEWS  by Lucire staff/November 23, 2016/3.01


Adidas and Porsche Design, the design company founded by Butzi Porsche, have released their spring–summer 2017 Porsche Design Sport by Adidas collection.
   These sportswear items blend the idea of Adidas’ performance heritage with efficient design. Jacques Chassaing, senior design director for the label, says that wearers are active even during Europe’s cold winter months, and need items that help them stay warm and dry.
   Because customers wear the items not just at the gym, but as part of their everyday travel and commuting, the padded jacket is designed to keep them warm, thanks to PrimaLoft Gold insulation. There is also a vest that can be paired with the wool mix top, and a water-repellant, five-pocket Commuter pant.
   Porsche Design Sport by Adidas also has the UltraBoost trainer collection, again blending Porsche Design’s functional ideas with Adidas’ performance ones. Foam aids comfort, while the leather adds luxury. The Drive Team bag has an EVA-moulded compartment to protect valuables, and ventilated slits allow wet clothing inside to dry out.
   Unifying some of this season’s designs is a subtle hexagonal pattern, intended to give a futuristic look, and features reflective elements for safety, appearing on the Reflective jacket, Reflective Cap II, Seven-Eighth Tight and Endurance 2·0 shoes, and the OT back-pack.
   The colour palette is focused on dark blue and black, though some pieces are in a bright red shade, which is particularly eye-catching and fitting for this season.
