Right in the middle of the week, we assemble and (of course) share several news that are on our minds and keep us on our toes.
ON FRÄULEIN`S MIND
NOW VIA BROWNSFASHION: JEAN PAUL GAULTIER X LOTTA VOLKOVA
Irresistible, pure sex appeal – is the collaboration between Jean Paul Gaultier and the stylist Lotta Volkova, now available at brownsfashion.com.
The collection includes a selection of dresses, bodies, and two pieces boldly showing off the female silhouette printed onto the garments and accentuated through revealing cut-outs. The nude optical illusions excite with their shocking and confident approach, in the best traditions of Jean Paul Gaultier, known to celebrate female assets since 1976. Lotta Volkova´s modern perspective lends the collection striking timelessness, speaking to the new generation of femmes fatales.
MERMERE is a jewelry workshop and design studio based in Marseille. All the creations are handmade by Noé Selve respecting the know-how of artistic craftsmanship. She has founded the studio back in 2019, making the commitment to develop her activity in accordance with her value and respect for the planet.
Mermere creations are responsible. From day one, every manufacturing step has been designed to improve production and reduce the negative impact on the environment. The Studio works with recycled precious metals (925 silver and 18ct gold), the fine stones are sourced from an RJC-certified supplier (Responsible Jewelry Council) and diamonds extracted from antique jewelry.
MARCO DE VINCENZO IS ETRO´S NEW CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Etro – the Italian luxury fashion house founded by Gerolamo Etro in 1968 is pleased to announce Marco De Vincenzo as new Creative Director for the women’s, men’s, and home collections, effective June 1st, 2022. His debut collection at the Maison will take place with the women’s SS23 during Milan Fashion Week in September 2022.
De Vincenzo stands out as one of the most innovative designers of the new generation. After graduating from the European Institute of Design in Rome, in the 2000s De Vincenzo started a long collaboration with Fendi for the accessories lines, before launching his eponymous women’s ready-to-wear brand in 2009, when he was also awarded first prize in the new talent competition “Who is on Next?” organized by Altaroma in collaboration with Vogue Italia.
DR. MARTENS AND PLEASURES COME TOGETHER FOR A DIY-INSPIRED COLLABORATION
Two brands synonymous with subcultural identities collaborate again celebrating the 90s grunge slacker attitude and the DIY approach. Founded in LA in 2015, PLEASURES is a brand steeped in grunge, metal, and punk, places where Dr. Marten’s wearers often find themselves too. Progressive, and not afraid to push for controversy, the brands celebrate the 70s Punk and 90s Riot Grrrl in their collaborative design.
The PLEASURES Jorge imagines the classic mule resulting from a cut-up shoe, providing comfort in soft black Nappa leather and chilled out Vibe sole. Completed with embroidered PLEASURES script as if signed by Alex, one of the founders of PLEASURES.
